I just received a phone call from this company Launch Group, and the nice lady on the other end of the phone informed me that I had won a $40 Jetstar voucher!! She started off by asking if I had participated in a HTC competition, I was like "???". She then said at NEX, and I remembered that me and Mr Toh both had participated in the small competition when we were there last Sunday 13/02! They had a roadshow going with a guy playing classical music on the keyboard and a few people scribbling on this big piece of canvas on the floor. We were just looking when a girl approached us and asked if we wanted to take part in a small lucky draw they had, just fill in the form and answer a simple question, which was to guess what theme were they drawing on the floor. After we filled the form, the girl took a look at our answers and told us we were correct! Lol! So heng heng win a voucher (again!!) today! I wonder if Mr Toh got win anything... But 我脱离不了vouchers的命运! Ok lah, better than nothing. =D
So, yesterday was my sister's birthday, Happy 20th girl!!! We had a small steamboat lunch at home, then she headed off to meet her friends for dinner~ We bought a Pierre Cardin wallet for her, she says she likes it. Hehe.
My aunt with my niece, and Mr Toh yawning in the background.
She was in a really good mood ytd, when my mom was talking to her, she was smiling and laughing. Lol~
Staring outside the window~
Making her 'Ö' face again, so cute!
Sleepy.... Zzz... My brother says she snores! And she is a little tyrant too. Whenever she gets uncomfortable in your arms, she'll start screaming. And when she is hungry, she starts crying immediately! Never give you time one leh!
Saturday, 19/02, we went to Xiu Hua's house for a gathering, she has kindly invited me and Mr Toh. We were pretty punctual (for once!). =X We left at around 5pm plus, and took a bus to Orchard. Her house's location is so convenient lor!
But it was raining heavily in Orchard. T_T I had wanted to alight at the bus stop outside Tangs, but Mr Toh said to alight at Heeren instead. Later he told me it was because he remembered the distance from Heeren to the bus stop was shorter than at Tangs, and we'll get drenched less that way. Awww...so smart my Mr Toh. Lol!!
We were shopping for a present for my sis at Orchard, as I have Taka, Tangs & Robinsons vouchers!
Before that, we were walking around Heeren waiting for the rain to stop when we saw this Vietnamese coffee shop, Trung Nguyen~ Mr Toh asked if I wanna give it a try and I said yes! How can I say no to coffee?? =P
We ordered 1 cup to share~
This was their Creative One, said to have strong flavour, if I remember correctly.
That is the filter/brewer on top, also known as phin. Mr Toh bought 1 home from Vietnam on his previous trip but we have not given it a try yet. Lol.
The coffee is brewed as it slowly trickles through the pressed coffee powder inside the filter to the cup. Mr Toh said don't order this if you are thirsty, because you might have died from thirst before the coffee is ready. *exaggeration
There is some milk in the bottom of the cup, so once the coffee is done dripping, you only need to give it a good stir, and the coffee's ready!
Inside. The coffee was really rich and robust! I loved it! And no, I did not have trouble sleeping that night. =P
After the coffee, the rain had stopped and we went shopping at Taka then Tangs. Sadly, I discovered that my $40 Robinsons vouchers had expired in Jan 2011!!! So sad. Mr Toh said it was heart wrenching to see me tear the vouchers up and throw them away. T_T
I bought Huiyi a wallet at Taka, then we went to Tangs to try to spend my $50 voucher, luckily they have a Clinique counter there so I was able to buy my moisturiser~ The moisturiser was $42, when I made payment with the $50 voucher, the cashier was like, "Mam, you still have $8 value, don't waste it, you can go that area to see if there is any small items you like, like a coin pouch, etc." So I did go look around and I found a really cute little Perllini pouch for myself! *happy*
A day of shopping without spending any $$, besides on food and drinks that is.
Customer bought a box of emicakes durian puffs for us that day!
Huge durian puffs! They were pretty good, but the ones from Joo Chiat still wins hands down!!
