Happy Birthday, Myself

Sunday, December 02, 2012

Before I start on my 19th birthday post, I would like to post mention a few things!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday, I made a decision which I'm (still) unsure if it's a correct one.

Yes, it's just right across my house (downtown east) & the classes are intensive yet fun! Problem is will I be able to keep my determination up throughout the one year period? And it's not cheap given the pay I'm earning every month too. Sigh.

You may think that it's fine, I can just stop anytime if I wanna stop. But no, I HAVE to commit during this one entire year. If I were to quit, there's a penalty fee which is fucking expensive.

So.... Let me find the motivation again & I'll be in the gym every week!

Another thing was that I tried cooking Aglio Olio based on the recipe Dear gave me, but I failed terribly. It's not the recipe that's wrong but it's just me. I don't even know how to fry the garlic for heaven sake! Don't even mention what should be cooked first. ~_~

Ended up pouring everything away....

& after that, I wasn't ready to give up yet. I still BELIEVE I have a talent for something. Maybe not in main courses... Desserts? Sweet treats? 

So Dad brought my brother and I out so we went to grab some baking ingredients for Chocolate Lava Cake!

Ingredients are the following:
  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Van Houten Baking Chocolate
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 spoonful of sugar
  • Unsalted Butter

The moment we reached home, I was quite excited to start baking! 

So is my brother too! :) 

And this is definitely our life. We totally depended on it to weigh how much ingredient was needed. 

So after some mixing & preparation, the mixture was ready!
Poured into the ramekins and there was still quite a lot of leftovers!

Already looking yummy & delicious! 

We didn't fill it to the top because the lava cake would rise throughout the baking process.

After 15 minutes.............
Ta-daa! Our Pride & Joy :)

And my verdict is it was really chocolate-y! But it wasn't too sweet and it actually tasted really awesome!

Just in case you're wondering, my brother lent me his Canon EOS 1100D for the above photos :)
Some photos I took with his 1100D.

I love this shot of Dear! 

Caught a crab! (But I wouldn't dare to eat it.. Caught it at Changi Beach) 

 Love this shot :) It's actually just a pot of Mummy's money plant. Love the focus!

Now, back to my birthday post!
This year, I have to admit that I haven't been a good friend to anyone.. I think I have even neglected some. Maybe it's because I'm bad at prioritizing people in my life. But nevertheless, I'm glad I have made the decision to keep some people in my life, and stayed away from some.

I guess it's just part of growing up. 

Anyway, Dear surprised me with a rather early birthday present!!!
I found it on my study desk when he sent me home. 

:') SO TOUCHED. Almost to tears, in fact. I think it's the first time he's written a heartfelt letter? Hahaha. 

 And yes.. My gorgeous Agnes B wallet! These 2 colours have gotta be my favourite combination :)

On my birthday itself, I had to work :( Dear couldn't take leave cos it was a Friday..
It started out as a really bad day actually. 

I woke up really late, my handphone had no battery and I couldn't start it at all, (my phone was off the entire day), I was having a bad hair day, bad face day, I looked fat, my parents looked like they weren't bothered with me, etc.

I was thinking... this must be the worst birthday of my life. 

But thankfully, my SPH staffs were very nice & they surprised me with a birthday chocolate fudge cake!!!!!!!!!!!
I was so surprised because I didn't expect them to do so they are definitely the sweetest :)

And knowing that I love chocolates so much.. They really bought a cake FILLED with chocolate. It was soooooooo good!

Groupshot with Mama VJ 

VJ & Lisa! 

Love y'all :) 

And yes, my favourite buddy!

After work, Dear ended work at 6pm too and came by to pick me up!

From a distance, I wasn't sure if it was him in the car because the person was wearing formal... and had gelled hair!

To my pleasant surprise, it was Dear!!!
I thought he was wearing his chef outfit (HAHAHA) but it was him... all dressed up for me. From what I've known, I've never seen him in formal, always t shirts/polo shirts and bermudas. 

And he looked so HOT & SEXY in his formal shirt. hahaha.
I couldn't keep my eyes off him the entire night though....... Oops

Anyway he was rather sneaky and mysterious about where we were about to go...
He refused to reveal/drop any hint at all :(

Look at my hot man!

He drove into Sentosa and I was getting a little excited already.. Hahaha.
However, we got a little lost but GPS saved our lives :)

So the place he wanted to bring me for dinner was Tanjong Beach Club!
In fact, he had already made a reservation 3 months ago........ :') I could die from all the sweet surprises that everyone has sprung on me that day.

We were seated outside at the beach which was really romantic..

 Romantic dinner by the beach~

Thank you dear.. You have no idea how blessed I am to have you in my life :') 


Love this shot even better! 

Ordered Moscato to start the awesome night.. :)

This is the life yo! Loved the idea of having white wine by the beach :)

The man whom have redefined the definition of love~ 

Loved this shot of myself.. Hahaha. Good hair & face day here :p (Sorry I'm contradicting myself hehe) 

Took this shot using the self-timer :) 

Our food! 

We ordered Foie Gras Kaya Toast, (okay it sounds really weird.. but the combination is fucking awesome!) Grilled Snapper :)

Grilled Snapper 

Yes we had the whole beach to ourselves..

Anyway back to the food, the combination of foie gras and the slight sweetness and fragrance of kaya goes super well! with the toast of course.. It's a must try! :) 

We finished within 15 minutes & we were rather full..

 Red face from the wine :p

After clearing our plates, the staffs suddenly came back with a mini cake............
I totally went, "OMG!" 
Haha, my "OMG" moment for the 2nd time in the same day.

With a message :) Anyway it was a chocolate brownie cake with vanilla ice cream on top of it.. My second serving of cake filled with chocolate goodness! Hehe 

Awesome night thanks to him :) 

Thanks..  :')

After dinner, it started drizzling, so we went back to my house.. and Mum had actually bought a Durian cake for me!!!!!!

Okay I have this obsession with durians so Daddy and Mummy bought a durian cake for me!! :)
In fact, they spent the entire day looking for the best birthday cake ever :')

So this year's birthday I had 3 birthday cakes in total! 
Hehe guess I grew fatter but all for the right reasons :)

Would like to thank everyone for all the birthday wishes.. Even friends whom I haven't been in contact with for a few years also wished me for my birthday :') I took quite sometime to reply everybody's messages because I was out the whole day and my phone was spoiled at the wrong time zzz. Thanks to my close friends for the birthday treats, meetups and many more! You guys have no idea how much I love y'all.. Definitely keepers!

And my family who never fail to stand by my side, support all my decisions, loved me unconditionally, showered me with so much care and concern and tolerated all my nonsense and crap for these 19 years..

And Dear, who made such great efforts to make me feel like a princess all again.. who always tries his best to make me the happiest girl in the world everyday, and for loving me despite my wilful character.. 

THANK YOU, everyone.


Well hello, September

Sunday, September 02, 2012

Can't believe school's over! Internship is starting this month.. And I can't wait :)
Hopefully the pay is enough for me to get a new laptop by then. Because the one I'm using is really slow and hangs from time to time. Can't even do anything on it :(

But before that, tomorrow I'd be going back to Ipoh to visit my relatives with Mummy and my Baby! :)

Can't wait :) 

Just wanna update on some overdue events. Every tuesday was both of our OFF day, so we went out on a date!

Wearing my new romper that I bought online! But I forgot which blogshop x_x hehe.

Whee super happy :)

We look so compatible here huh... Even in real life also. Heheh so compatible we look like a married couple HAHA.

These few days I've been actually googling up good food in Singapore using hungrygowhere. I think the reviews there are rather reliable. Also, I've been following ladyironchef on Instagram so he's been recommending places like Chin Mee Chin Confectionery at East Coast Road. 

Decided to go there for our brunch!
It's a typical old kopi shophouse along the stretch of shophouses at East Coast Road. The people working there (Owners, I assume) were quite old and it looked like the original Old Town back in Ipoh Perak which I always frequent when I was young! (It's not the modernized Old Town, but really the OLD & Original Oldtown)

Thought the food is nice.. We ordered out 2 chiffon cupcakes, 2 eggtarts, 2 kaya buns, 2 soft boiled eggs and 2 drinks. And it totaled up to $9.90! I was so damn shocked. Hello? The portions were actually quite miserable and it wasn't even filling.

This was the eggtart. I had to admit that the eggtart was good. I'm not a big fan of eggtarts (in fact, I hate them) but this really made me changed my mind.


The chiffon cupcake we ate was just okay.. It was quite dry and didn't taste that good though.
We ordered the soft boiled eggs and they were actually 3/4 cooked already. So it was more like eating hard boiled eggs?

We also ordered the kaya bun. I saw the review somewhere when somebody commented it's the only shop they knew that has kaya bun, not the usual kaya toast. Like seriously?

I think they have been living under a rock all this while.

Reviews online were quite favourable, but in my opinion, they were SO ordinary. I think the kaya bun at City Plaza is so much better though. The one I had at Chin Mee Chin Confectionery was quite cold, soggy and the portion is indeed miserable. 

The bun was cold that the butter didn't even melt at all.. It's supposed to melt to complement the kaya.

Dear didn't like the coffee very much though. He said that Killiney's coffee was much better than this and my milo was super diluted. 

I doubt we will be coming here anymore.. Even though it has many good reviews but I don't trust Singaporeans' tastebuds. Seriously wtf. As I have mentioned in my previous post, the "top rated" KL hokkien mee in Singapore was so soggy and I can't believe all the good reviews about it.

It's time to trust my own tastebud!
Anyway, to make up for our miserable brunch, we went to Chong Qing at Liang Seah Street for dinner! Super happy :) It's been quite long since Dear and I went there. We met up with my mummy since she was also at Bugis. 

It's a Sichuan restaurant and they are famous for their fishes!!!!!
We ordered their Seabass with Fragrant Spicy sauce with potato and enoki mushrooms, with a sidedish of Sweet & Sour eggplant.

It's the ENTIRE fish and it's only $28 for such a yummy feast! It's actually big enough for 4 people to share :)

It was Dear who actually recommended this place to me. It's seriously good!

Even Mummy said that the fish was yummy too! Now by just blogging about it, I'm also hungry... x_x

Yesterday, met up with my two lovely pals, Yanying and Jeslyn to catch up with one another! YY and I met up at Oldtown at Cineleisure first to have our dinner while waitng for Jeslyn to end her work at Sentosa.

Don't have much pictures from yesterday in my camera.

YY and me! :)

Bought my transparent Iphone cover at Cine and it's only $2!!!!!!!! YY bought her iphone sticker (front and back) and it's also only $2! Mad cheap can!

Met Jeslyn at a super late timing so we went to CentrePoint's Macdonalds to chill out and chat about her kinky adventures at Seychelles. Haha! Super funny and entertaining!

After that, all of us went home while Dear came to pick me up :)

Love spending time with people I love!!!!! (:


Josephine and Brendon's Wedding :)

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

 Super overdue post! Sorryyyyy but because I'm so busy with projects these days, I don't even have the time to have time for myself.. Most of the time I also gave my boyfriend :) Hahah

 Anyway I've been wanting to blog about Brendon and Josephine's wedding since a while ago.. So here it is!!!
Their pre-wedding lunch was actually on 7th July August, Saturday after their ROM (but we missed their ROM) so we went for the lunch instead :) It was at Blue Ginger Restaurant, along Tanjong Pagar area and near Maxwell foodcourt. Brendon said that the curry beef was to die-for! Hmm..

Anyway their wedding was a beach- themed one, because I guess both of them have been travelling to beach countries etc?
It was really pretty though!

The couple :)

The cupcakes were really pretty!!  However it was kinda hard to bite. :/
I thought that this smoked duck salad was really good.. Yummy!

Can you spot the super pretty turqoise macaroons??

It's vanilla and they taste super good! Really love it :)

Our lunch.. and the friends around :)

Durian Chendol! It's quite yummy.. The durian is rather fleshy and juicy but I guess the one at Dessert Bowl @ Chompchomp wins it still..

A closeup of the durian chendol. Yums!

After our lunch, we took photos together and of course, the bride tried to throw the bouquet around.. They tried to push me towards it but I am TOO YOUNG to get married please. Hahaha.
And I don't think I'll get married that fast 'cos I think I still have some trust issues with my boyfriend..  (Sorry, been hearing too much negative stuffs about guys like cheating etc.)

Us with the couple :) Haha they're best friends!

After that, we proceeded to Andara Hotel nearby to chat and hang out, since there weren't any place for us to hangout at..

The girls~

After that, we went to return Josephine's wedding dress, and went to eat at the nearby Fishhead Steamboat Restaurant nearby. They claimed to be the best, with many newspaper recommendations, but when we ordered and eat it, we felt that it was just alright :/

 We went back to the hotel and met up with their friends, and headed to the lobby's lounge to have some wine..

The girls, or rather, the women (anyway I'm the only girl la okay) ~~

Guess it turned out pretty funny when both the groom and bride were a little drunk..
Epic photo of the night!

Don't know what they are doing.. Hahahah

Toast to the happy couple! :)

My boyfriend~ Face red, but he claim to be not drunk(?) Hahha

Our photo together :)

Love it so much!!

The guys chatting and having a really good time~

Around 2am, we ended the night with the groom gulping down the entire wine bottle, and ended up puking in Ken's car -_- Hahaha. It was really funny, but really want to congratulate the couple for tying the knot! Hope both of you will continue to find joy in each other's company as long as you live :)
