I had dinner with A on Friday. Just a simple meal. I realised I haven't been to his workplace to meet him for dinner for a few days already. I wish there was a easier and faster way to get to MS.
I just hate walking through the long CityLink all by myself. *pouts*
After dinner, I went off to meet the babes at Dhoby Ghaut. But only Char was there, the other babes will be late. As Char hadn't had dinner yet, we went to KFC @ PS. Saw some of our coursemates too, such a coincidence. Singapore is really small. Like, tiny. =X
Anyway, Chris arrived later, but we were still waiting for JiaHui. This lady was still sleeping when Char arrived at the MRT station earlier on! Tsk tsk. =X
We walked from Dhoby Ghaut MRT to the Butter Factory. It looked really cute from outside, with the entrance looking like a red painted mouth. But...we were kinda disappointed inside. It's really small. It has two areas, one with a more chill out atmosphere and another dancing area inside. A came and joined us soon.
Hmm...kinda disappointing music. Bleah. It was RnB...but...not very nice. The beat was a tad too slow...I couldn't really get myself dancing. Not enjoyable at all, even though there were some old favourites played. And the crowd was more mature and there were more foreigners too. Bah. $20 wasted. For A, $25 wasted. Bah.
Pictures will be up soon.
On Saturday, we went to his aunt's furniture shop in Hougang to look at wardrobes! We had dinner there first, then went for a walk at a nearby park, where we just chatted. It feels nice. =)
His aunt is pretty! A remarked before that she looks like Pan LingLing and I agree! She's really nice too. ^^ His uncle was kinda quieter. Heh.
A then sent me home.
For Sunday, I was slacking all day at home, doing my nose mask. =X
Met A for dinner ytd after work. We walked all the way to Suntec! Had Japanese food, but...it wasn't very nice. Bleah.
Tmr's our 3rd month anniversary! Wee~!!

I finally wore my leggings out today! Yes, out in broad daylight! Paired with my black flirty skirt~ Hee.
You know? I'm SO glad I wore this out today. Cos I realised just how 'flowy' this skirt was. God...it kept flying up! Thank god for the leggings that preserved my modesty.
I kinda like how I look actually. xD
Hee. There were some stares...but...who cares? =P
Anyway, I was on the train to work today when I saw the advertisement for VivoCity.
To be honest, I was only looking at it because I have nothing else to look at. No pretty gals / hunky guys to look at. =X *kidding*
So, I was looking at the logo of VivoCity and I thought, "Hey, that looks like a fishy bone." You know, the 'O' of Vivo looks like the fish head, and the 'Viv' looks like the body.
Does it look alike?
I wonder if it's made that way on purpose or just a coincidence.

Heh, he's gotten me hooked on animes. T_T
I love the Death Note anime! Though it's only at its 3rd episode. Didn't have a chance to finish reading the comic, but it's ok, we're gonna go in JB one day and I'll buy all 13 books! Hiak.
We caught the movie ytd, and it wasn't that bad. Just kinda different from the comic and anime, which, actually is to be expected. Anyway, I just have to say something. I think the main leads are fugly. Especially L.
The Light in the comic is darn handsome~ But the one in the movie is...average, to say the least.
And the L is just plain retarded. The way the actor portrayed him made him appear as a less intelligent person. His quirky ways just seem really retarded.
Disappointed in the choice of actors!
I just bought the Sony Ericsson w850i! Sony Ericsson w850i
Heh, finally a change of phone after soooo long~ But I still ended up with a SE phone. Hee.
The main things that captured my attention about this phone was it's design. I love the sliding motion, it's so damn cool! It looks way cooler in white, which, of cos, is what I bought. XD Also, I love the fact that it's a walkman phone, cos I just love listening to music when I travel to work everyday. The sound is pretty awesome. It also comes with a 2MP camera, which I think is enough for the hidden cam whore in me. =X The camera also has digital zoom and photo light.
It also comes with a cable plug for easy transferring of files. Love it love it love it!
One bad thing about this phone is the small directional keys. In this phone, SE does not use the joystick which they have used with almost all their phones. I like the design of the directional pad more, but the buttons are kinda small, which makes me feel like I have fat fingers. ><
And another thing that comes with all slide phones. If the phone is unlocked when it's not slide open, I have to slide it open and close to lock the keypad, which is pretty irritating to me. ~.~
Overall, I LOVE this phone. Mainly cos it's such an improvement from my old phone. Heh. I LOVE the music player, it comes with bombastic in-ear earphones, which takes some getting used to. I LOVE the camera! It works perfectly fine for me. ^^ And I just really LOVE the cool whiteness of this phone. Oh yes, and it also comes preloaded with some of Lee Hom's songs and some wallpapers. Heh, I like him alot! I think he sings and plays the piano beautifully. ^^
I signed up for another 2 yr plan, and the phone cost me $498. I think it's totally worth it! I'm kinda glad I waited so long to change my phone. ^^
We had lots of fun fooling around with the camera, but the pictures are too silly to be seen here. A would kill me. =x
Some normal pictures. ^^
The Raku Ninja @ Citylink. Haven't tried the food yet, but the ninja outside the door is pretty cool~
Us @ Marina Sq Carpark. Met him for dinner. ^^
We had our dinner at Crystal Jade. And had ramen and xiao long bao! We think that the ramen was better at Taka. It was better 'pulled'. The ramen here was kinda uneven, some thick some thin. But still alright lah.
A very happy A. =X
Satisfied me after finishing my ramen and the xiao long baos!
Oh, and we also bought a piggy bank! It literally snorts when we put in money. Lol~ Damn cute!
Our joint piggy bank!
Hee. And we've agreed to put in only $1 coins. xD
Ah....I love my phone~
p.s. I love you too!
Not a lot leh. Heh, but it's ok~
My Bday card from my babes~
My Eeyore HP holder. Damn cute!
My lovely watch from A! I love it to bits! First time anyone has given me a watch. Heh. And wearing a watch is a good habit that I intend to keep! =)
Gorgeous bag from Doreen. I think the bag is damn glam!
Tweety mugs from the ladies at work! I love them! ^^
Clover pendant and chain from another lady at work! I love it too! Damn sweet! Hopefully I'll get more lucky. Heh. =X
This is not the original picture though, I'm too lazy to take a pic of it. But it looks like the one pictured, only without the framing around the pendant. ^^
I love my pressies. ^^
Saturday, October 21, 2006
P.S I look fugly in the pics! -sob-
The bbq otah-satay-chicken wing man! My brotherrrr...
Us stealing a moment away from everyone else.
The marshmallow ladies, JiaHui, Char and Chris.
Preparing the cake for the cake cutting ceremony.
My Macadamia White Chocolate cake! I love the stars and the hearts.
Singing of bday song~
Getting ready to blow the candles.
Cut the caaaaaakeeee!
My watch and my red face after a few glasses of wine.~
<3 wub wub~
4 of my wacky cousins~
Me, gone crazy, thinking the pillar's my love. =X
Shagged. T_T See how tired we are?
And I got this really ugly and painful bruise on my knee after I bumped it on the swimming pool stairs. Damn pain. T_T It's still bruised, though not so painful now.

13 Oct Friday
A was on leave from Friday till Wednesday. Perfect timing to clear his leave. Heh.
We headed for breakfast, had some yummy nasi lemak with really delish chicken wings! Ate it under a void deck, haha, that's a first for me.
After that, we watched some anime. And I think I know why animes like Naruto, Bleach, Gundam are so popular! I personally feel that Gundam and Naruto is nice, especially Naruto! A's also downloading the Death Note anime, only 2 episodes so far. Bleah. I can't wait for the next episode!
We went and checked in at the resort first. Took quite a long time then it was off to meet my mom @ the old Woodlands Interchange to buy the stuff needed for the bbq. And we were late. -.- No thanks to my piggy. =P Had dinner first, which was awful. All our dishes were awful. :( Didn't enjoy the food one bit.
Then, time for shopping @ the Sheng Song Supermarket. The place is huge. Bought ALOT of stuff, and only 2 of us to carry it. Bleah. Carried most of the stuff back to the resort. Super shagged after that.
Wanted to go for a dip in the pool, but no swimming after 10 I think. Bleah. So just slacked and watched TV. We also sorted out the stuff for the bbq.
We were sleeping soundly, but got rudely awakened by this big group of Indians sitting outside our room. They were so damn bloody noisy. Grrrrrr. But nothing we can do about it, because we were SO outnumbered. -sigh-
Managed to fall back asleep but was still kinda tired when we woke up the next day.
Oooh, and I got my first pressie from A! Hee. Love it to bits!
14 Oct Saturday
We went for a swim in the morning. Actually, A swam and I just stayed in a corner of the pool, playing with the water. Hee.
Left the resort in the afternoon, to direct my mom and uncle over to the resort. They kinda got lost...heh, cos that place is so ulu.
We left for Sembawang MRT and had our lunch @ Mos burger.
Bought some stuff @ the NTUC there. Still had some stuff to buy, but couldn't get what we wanted at NTUC so we took the shuttle bus to Sembawang Shopping Centre, where we bought some more stuff.
We decided to buy the ice @ the 7-11 store @ Sun Plaza, which is really common sense, so the ice won't melt so fast.
Carrying so many heavy
things, we had to rush back to the resort, as my mom had already reached there with the food and there was no one to open the door for her.
I also had to settle the otah and satay deliveries. Cos that place is really ulu, so had to keep giving the delivery men directions. ~.~
After settling my mom and relatives in, (actually they were playing mahjong), sorted the stuff for the bbq, then we headed for Bishan to alter the gift A gave me, and to get my cake from Secret Recipe! Wee wee. Was very tired by now, but still excited. The cake is darn heavy...1.5kg. $75 for the Macadamia White Chocolate cake. Darn ex but worth every penny!
By the time we got back, it was already 6+...so we started moving all the food and stuff down to the bbq pits and started the fire.
At this time, I really didn't do much, cos I know nuts about starting a bbq fire. Heh.
People started coming, ate and drank, etc. My relatives played mahjong. Hmmm......I don't think I really entertained my guests... I was kinda like, overwhelmed and really really tired.
Got quite a few red packets from my relatives and my babes (!). Really surprised that they gave me a red packet...lol, it's the thought that counts. ^^ Doreen got me a really glam bag from C&K. I love it! Thanks babe~
Cake cutting after that...I love my cake! My cute cousings and friends sang the bday song for me... =) My cousins are SO adorable, albeit mischevious.
They almost drove A and me crazy during these few days. ~.~
One of A's friend came really late with his gf, we were really tired, so we just let them help themselves to the food. Heh. He got me this Eeyore handphone holder that he got in Taiwan. Really cuuute! Too bad no Piglet. =X
After everyone has left, we cleared up, and it was alot of work man! Darn tired!!!
My mom and relatives were playing mahjong in the room, didn't wanna stay inside. So we changed and went down to the pool. Heh. It was supposed to be out of bounds, but no one was watching the place. They were sleeping. Lol~ Soaked in the pool for a while, it was REALLY cold!
After a while, we went back to the room, bathed and watched them play mahjong for a while. But my eyes were really heavy...so A and I found a spot on the floor (the beds were all taken), laid a blanket and slept. I was kinda uncomfortable, but A made it so much better, cos I was using his arm as a pillow. Hee. Thank you dear dear.
15 Oct Sunday
Woke kinda early cos I thot my uncle was coming to drive all the stuff back to my place...but turns out that he will only reach in the evening.
So....my mom and relatives decided to play mahjong again! -.- And A and me were given the task of buying food back. Bleah. Walked all the way out to the bus stop, had our lunch at the foodcourt nearby and tabao-ed
the food back.
Slacked around, entertained my cousins. Then time to move all the stuff back to my house, but we still needed to check out, so my mom and relatives went back first.
A and me went back to the room to pack our stuff, and after checking out, I helped him carry the cooler box and drinks dispensers back to Tampines! We had to take a total of 3 buses...damn troublesome!!! Almost died man... =X
After putting the stuff at his house, we went for dinner! We came back to Causeway Point and had our dinner at Siam Kitchen.
This came the moment we sat down, we thought it was a good idea that we had something to snack on while browsing the menu. We also thought it was free, but it costs $1.00 per plate. It's really nice and crispy. ^^
A ordered the Thai milk tea, $2.90, and I ordered a normal ice lemon tea, $2.90, cos i don't like Thai drinks. Normal drinks, nothing special.
The seafood tomyam soup, $5.90, that came first. It was really nice! Sour and spicy, but not too spicy. Even I liked it...heh. And the seafood was really fresh.
I ordered a seafood rice noodle pad thai, $7.50. Very nice too~ Fragrant and flavourful. Portion was pretty big too. The rice noodles were different from the normal noodles used and I love it.
We ordered a red chicken curry, $7.90, to share. Not too bad...though the chicken meat was kinda tough.
The spoiler of the meal. A ordered seafood pineapple rice, $9.90 and it was horrible. No pineapple taste and the rice was very dry... Bleah.
Overall, I enjoyed the meal, but I couldn't help comparing it to Thai Express.
I felt that Thai Express's service was better. More smiley staff. Maybe it was because the staff at Siam Kitchen was younger.
But food and price wise, Thai Express is definitely better than Siam Kitchen. And Siam Kitchen doesn't provide ice water unless you ask.
I'd definitely not go back there to eat, I only went in the first place because it's at Causeway Point.
A then sent me home... Thank you for every single thing...I really appreciated all the help you gave me and I'm sorry for some of the unpleasantness. I love the pressie you gave me. ilu. *muacks*
16 Oct Monday
A was cleaning his room the whole day. So guai! We went to Simei, Eastpoint and I had my eyebrows trimmed at the hair salon on the 4th level. I love the person who plucked my brows for me. She's great! We then had our dinner at the foodcourt beside the MRT station. The food wasn't very nice though. But it's ok, we bought lots of titbits to eat! Hee.
17 Oct Tues
I took leave from work, cos I didn't wanna spend my bday working! Bleah.
We went to Cineleisure for a movie, You, Me and Dupree. Darn funny show~ Owen Wilson is SO cute. We went for dinner after that, at Cafe Cartel. I had wanted to eat Fish & Co. at first, but I felt kinda lazy to go all the way to Dhoby Ghaut. =X
I had the St. Louis Pork Ribs, $ 14.20 and A had a Haiwaiian Pork Chops, $13.50. I loved both dishes, but the pork ribs made me feel sick after awhile. It's so huge...and there was so much meat, I got kinda sick after eating half of the rib. So I changed dishes with A, and I had some pork chop. It was rather nice and tender, esp with the pineapple. ^^ But no pictures, we forgot to bring a camera out. ><
We also took some neoprints! Can't upload them though. Maybe I'll take a picture of them someday. ^^
Pictures for bbq in next post.

I'm finally 21! Wee!
More updates soon.
Tuesday, October 10, 2006
Went gai gai yesterday with A.
He had his off day ytd, and came and fetch me after work. But he was a bit late. Hmph. Never mind~
We went to Vivocity to walk around, he wanted to visit his ex-manager @ Insight Optics but he was not around, walked around somemore, trying to find the foodcourt (budget nowadays).
BUT it turns out the foodcourt was not open yet. *faint*
The mall is HUUGE man...I got really blur when trying to find the foodcourt. Lol. It has some sort of a sky terrace thingy up on the third floor, pretty cool.
I really like the outer design and the details of the mall. ^^
I was starving, so we walked back to Harbourfront Centre to have our dinner.
After that, we decided to go to Sembawang! To check out the room we booked for my birthday celebration.
I finally managed to book something, but the room is very small, something like the ones @ Downtown East but without a fridge. Oh wells, nvm lah.
So there's just gonna be a BBQ for my frens and family. I hope for good weather! ^^
Anyway, so we managed to find our way there, checked out the place and the bbq pits. The whole place is pretty small. But size is not a problem~
I just hope everyone will have fun that day, including me!
And that the food will taste goood. Very important.
I'm looking forward to my marshmallows! YUM!
After checking out the place, A sent me home. Something unpleasant happened. -sigh-
I think it's my fault. I'm SO oversensitive. Blah.
Pics of our dinner @ Crystal Jade on Wednesday.
Stuffed Beancurd, Portugese style.
Very nice~ But I don't know what's the bottom layer supposed to be.
Fried fatty meat. Not very nice. Too dry and too salty.
My fried rice with compoy and crab meat. Delicious!
A had pork ribs noodles. Forgot to take a pic.
Apparently, Crystal Jade's mango pudding is rather famous. But I've never tried it before.
So we ordered one each. ^^
It came with a jug of milk, what kind of milk, I'm not sure though.
It's really nice! With chunks of real mango, so smooth and sweet! I liked it better without the milk. XD
I finished it even though I was SO full. Hee.
After dinner, we went to take our neoprints! Hee. I love it. *muacks*
The movie was absolutely GREAT! Very funny, and as usual, the fight scenes were fabulous. The storyline was ok, but the characters were really great, each and every one of them. Especially Matthew the baby. He's SO adorable and he had a really expressive face!
I really enjoyed this show. 4.5/5.
Slacking at home today. A's at work. Watching my America's Next Top Model. Hee.
WARNING: Pictures intensive post!!!
Remember the Taiwan Porridge from Hougang? It's really nice! Picture below. ^^Yummy Taiwan Porridge.
Pics we took on the bus back. ^^
On the bus, on another day. In my new specs!
Chinese Garden - World of Wonders
Look at the crowd.
The Eiffel Tower. We had to ask an Indian guy to help us take, and I must commend him on his photography skills!
The lanterns hanging everywhere. I think they're pretty.
Spinx and pyramids. I'm at Egypt!
Dragon and phoenix~
We saw a group of GORGEOUS men infront of this lantern. They were all wearing sashes, maybe they were participants of Mr World? Too bad, no pictures of them. =X
Another pretty lantern. I forgot what this is supposed to be. =X
The Leaning Tower of Pisa. It looked pretty straight to me. Whoa, check out what it's made of! Pretty!
Big insects~ Cute!
The pretty rainbow bridge~
Huh? Heehee. Took this after I called him.
I love the bridge~ So pretty!
Us on the bridge. One of our many self taken shots. ^^
The "palace". Heh.
The "concubine". Or maybe princess sounds better. LOL.
The "brave general", bodyguard of the princess. Heehee. =X
There was a surprise inside here. I never knew that there was something like this in Chinese Garden.
A turtle and tortoise museum, which holds the Guinness World Record of having the largest collection of turtles and tortoises. Over 3400!
$5 for one adult admission ticket. We paid up and in we went.
LOTS of fake turtles. Got some very cute ones.
Even a Happy House one!
And one made of golden lotuses. Wow.
Now for the real ones~
And a two headed turtle!
Check out the two heads. One at the top right, one at the bottom right. Cool man...
A fed the turtles at the pond, they seemed so hungry.
Scary lor, so many of them!
Here comes the food!
Ok, that's all the food you're gonna get from me for today. Oh yes, A's carrying my bag for me. Hee.
After we exited from the museum, it's back to the lanterns! We haven't finished seeing all the lanterns yet.
Another pyramid like structure. I forgot what it's supposed to be again. ><
The world is in my hands! Actually, no lah, just this beautiful lantern. Hee.
Check out this huge lantern display on the pond. Very beautiful~ Especially during the night time. ^^
Me. I was blinking, that's why I've got kuku eyes in this picture. ><
Our many self taken shots. We were trying to get a picture of us and the lantern behind.
Not very successful leh.
Then walked around, and we found a perfect spot to take the picture. Hee.Yeah, finally!
Time for a drink. A, at the vending machine. I asked him to pose for this picture. Haha.
Another candid pic. Hee.
The Taj Mahal. Beautiful!
Pandas at Chinese Garden! Lol.
Continued walking and we saw this guy selling malt candy. But not just any old malt candy. It came in the form of a bird!
He was drawing with the malt candy! Cool man! Very pro!
Colour dough characters.
A picture of the pagoda. We didn't climb it, as we were too tired. ><
Cute tiger mascot! Funny thing is, he was wearing slippers and we could see. LOL. But it's not in the pic. xD
