Been spending these few weeks with my bf..

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Tuesday was our 9th month anniversary, but this month we were pretty broke so had to maintain a low cost date but nevertheless, it was the company that matters most. :)

Dear and I went to the cosiest place in Pasir Ris, Buddy Hoagies. It's a cafe that I've been patronising ever since it's opened, especially during my secondary school days with my good friends. And everything seem to remain the same, except for the creatively designed menu.

It was a weekday, so we had Buddy Hoagies lunch set which is just $8.90 for the soup, main course, and an iced tea!

Dear ordered pan fried fish while I ordered BBQ chicken.

Pan fried fish, with onion rings and macaroni and cheese! 

BBQ Chicken, cauliflower and cheese, french fries!

Had a satisfying meal since we were so FULL. Dear found the food just okay, but I thought it was quite good.. Maybe it's because I've been eating there for so long, hahhaa.

Anyway, we took neoprints that day -_- Felt so ah lian wtf but don't question me why the idea kinda popped up in my head.. Maybe it's because I never took neoprints with my bf before? Hahah

On Thursday, some of us 2m05 girlies decided to meet up for a quick lunch @ Lena's at Tampines 1 to catch up with one another! Miss them so much :'(

Miss the old days when I get to see them.. and we'd laugh in class, hahaha.
The set lunch is quite cheap hehehe.

Beef Bolognese with red wine added! It's rather yummy :) 

After lunch, it was about time I had to work and Lydia had to go driving so we all took a photo! Hehe ^^


Yesterday was the last day of semester 1 and WAS SUPER HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Finally Semester 3.1 is over and it's time to anticipate my Ipoh Trip with baby and mummy!

Went to find baby awhile ^_^ He was quite busy so he left shortly after we met up :( But thankfully that night I went to meet up with him again!

Always the happiest to see him :') 

Waited for Xinyi for 2hours!!!!!! Hahhaha and finally she finished school and we went to shop for some school clothes for her, and I got myself a pair of flats which I am so in love with :)

After that went back to Dhoby Ghaut and find baby and he haven't ate dinner so we went to Kong Kee to eat our long awaited KL Hokkien mee.. just wondering if it's the same we ate at KL?

Along Geylang.. where all the great food are hidden here 

Ordered the highly raved food - their KL Hokkien mee.

Wow.. Looking good! We ordered the $10 which is the medium portion 

Yum yum Snapshot 1 

Yum yum snapshot 2! 

Can't wait to dig in...... we were craving for this like forever!

Myself ^_^ excited to dig in!

The Verdict: Our rating was about 6/10.
Not bragging but my maternal relatives are all chefs, yes even all my aunts know how to whip up decent meals, and the Dai Lok Mee (another name for KL Hokkien Mee) they cooked are seriously the best. Rich in flavour with a bit of prawn taste. However at Kong Kee, I felt that the noodle was seriously quite sticky? The taste was a little bland and just eating a few more bites it got a bit "gao wei." My dear, despite him being so hungry didn't even finish the plate of noodle :/

So what is the reviews all about? Singaporeans.. They seriously don't know what the real deal is. I doubt I will be coming back for their KL Hokkien Mee the next time, but I do wanna try their huge grouper.. Looks super tempting!

Today, dear had work at 4pm, and I had nothing on so we went for brunch at Changi Village at Chockfull of Beans.. Initially we wanted to go 126 @ East Coast Park (his previous workplace) but we ended up going CV since it's nearer to my home. I was a little reluctant to go CV cos they don't have parks to walk after a meal and beaches and pretty trees :(

But maybe it's a blessing in disguise cos the food at Chockfull of Beans at CV is seriously good!

Chockfull of Beans is this cafe at Changi Village, beside Chocolate Origins and they have really pretty latte art! They can do angry birds, puppy faces and many more. Heheh. They have NO GST nor Service charge!

Dear saw his ex colleague working as a barista there too.. And he was originally from One Caramel so I assume the desserts should be good? :P hahah.

Baby :) 

We ordered.........:
From Left: Cappuccino with a bear latte art! (Melts) and my Gryphon Earl Grey Tea served in my favourite tea pot :) 

Next up, our brunch!
Portobello Mushroom with Poached Egg topped with Parsley. ($11)
 This combination was like HEAVENLY and out of the world! When dear said we ate half half and exchanged, I was abit hesitant cos I love the mushroom!!!!! Hehehe. 

Dear ordered the top: Cubano Sandwich. ($12) 
It was seriously AWESOME with the pickles but I don't know what the meat was.. But you guys can go try it there. 

Super satisfied!

And you know what they say, when you eat something GOOD to kickstart the day, the day will go well for you! Apparently I believe it's true because it made my mood so good the entire day that I feel like I'm living in a fairytale or something.

Anyway my colleague was telling me to be a food blogger or something.. To try out new places people don't really know about and afterwards share all the hidden gems with everyone. I think my blog don't have such a high readership to do something like that though :(

Am looking forward to next week, it's dear and his colleagues' BBQ, meetup with Jiawen and passing her her personalised farewell gift.. and just working. :)

So weird not to have school anymore. But that is surely a good thing. YAY!


Am thankful enough

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

I'm really grateful that I have my boyfriend by my side, knowing that no matter what happens, he'll be there for me. I may not be perfect at times, but he still accept me for who I am :)

He's seen my spectacles side, my fugly side, hahahha.

So happyz to have him in my life.
Despite me being a little sensitive and petty sometimes, behaving like a spoiled princess, but he still gives way to me and it makes me feel abit bad. :(

Me & Baby

When he stays over this is the kinda view I'll get, hehe ;)

Anyway just gonna blog about some stuffs that happened a while ago, about a few weeks ago?
I know it's late but I still remember everything vividly. Hehe.

Just so you know, on that Friday when I lost my laptop, he came down specially all the way from his workplace after work just to make me feel better, or according to him, "give me a hug," and we went for supper :)

Went to Xuan Le Dim Sum at changi village, which my family and I have been patronising for more than 6 years, hahaha. Love their fried prawn dumpling and siew mai!

Tried out their new custard bun.. It was just average. Wonder what's the craze over custard bun cos it's just average..

I LOVE/AM IN LOVE with this chicken mushroom steamed rice since forever :) Yum!

Went to JB with him to have our all-time favourite abalone noodle and our ai-yu jelly drink! Yummy!
After that we went to pump petrol and had his car washed.

The next morning, we walked around Downtown East and decided to have some Taiwan food for brunch, heh.

Xi Men's curry chicken cutlet rice! Super shiok :)

Well, another occasion was that after a day of school and projects (till 8pm), Dear brought me out to eat Thai food at Nakhon Kitchen , Bedok.
Everyone knows where is it except for me....... :(

He said the tomyam soup was really good.

Yum! Our dishes arrived less than 5 minutes!

Supposedly to be Kangkong but in the end..

Cashew Chicken! It was really good!

This tom yum. Looks normal but it KILLS. Hahah it was so spicy that the first time I drank it, I gulped down 1/3 of my water. But it was really good!

Basil Minced Pork.

After that dinner, we went to the nearby Ikea and did some "married couple" shopping.. Um, at least it did feel like we're married hahahaha. Oh well, he bought some necessities for his room.

And on Monday, went out with Dear and we walked around Bugis after he accompanied me to print my catalogue for my project. He changed his Iphone back to a Transformer logo. Super darn cool! He loves it~

Anyway headed to his house to have dinner cooked by his Mum, and we went to fishing with Fadly and Shahirah at Punggol Marina Club. I kinda was abit upset cos Dear kept on telling me "last one last one" and I was super tired that day and worried about Tuesday's presentation :/

But I wanted him to enjoy so I just said continue with his own game.. Hmm. But anyway he caught a really super big fish!

3kg! - Dear was super excited. Hehe but he looks so skinny here.. Sigh.

A closeup of the fish

The next day was my first presentation! - Sales Presentation!!
Did a few rehearsals.. But still felt nervous cos we didn't know what to say :/

Hehhe tired but waiting for our turn

After presentation, felt abit more confident!!!! Our group! With Najlaa missing :/


The start of June!

Sunday, June 03, 2012

This week, went to catch Men In Black 3 with Xinyi :)
We went to Bugis Shaw Theatres in the afternoon since they had a student promo which was like $6.50 for one person only!!!!!

Camwhored on the train..

The movie was surprisingly good, but Rotten Tomato rated it as rotten? Hmm

Anyway, I am never stepping into Bugis's cinema again... Wtf it's so crampy and the floor is so weird and the seats are so low and it's so freaking far!!

After that, walked around Bugis Junction and they had this Men in Black display for people to take photos with!

Xinyi's favourite alien? 

My cool nigga alien HAHA 

Well, not much to blog about but bought a pretty leopard flats hehehe so pretty!

Wanted to get the below handmade earrings but it was like 6 dollars?! But have to admit it's really pretty!

Met dear for dinner later on, we had abalone noodle!!!!!!

HAHAH damn shiok. Have been craving it for sometime and he finally brought me there cos he wants to pamper me now like his baby heheh *blush*

But after that, we met his friends and they went fishing -_-

 Dear say I'm really patient.... Of course I am la!

 The huge pond and in the end, they caught nothing at all -_-

Went home about 6am?! 
The promo for the fishing pond was if you fish for 12-6am it's only $27. Oh well, was super tired... T_T

Exams are just next week so have been down to studying..
It's been really long since I memorised stuffs and do so much studying so I wasn't so used to it. But... I know I really have to do it!

And while studying, I was packing my table at the same time and found my bag of memories with him :)

The receipts, movie tickets, museums' entry passes, zoo passes etc... There were so many!

 And guess what came into the mailbox this week?
Postcard from Jeslyn!

She's been away for 1 month now in Seychelles, doing her attachment.. Feel really happy for her because she's enjoying what she's pursuing now! :)

Sucha pretty postcard! :)

And yesterday was Bare Your Sole 2012! 

The main aim of this charity event was to raise funds for projects such as building houses for those in underdeveloped countries. I don't mind donating $10 to support the cause but walking barefooted, getting pricked by the dry grass etc was a no-no -_- 

But still, we had to turn up since our teachers say it's crucial and is part of our tutorial attendance blah blah. Who the hell forces people to do charity right? Wtf it should be of our own accord. Because it wouldn't be a cause if we don't want to do it.

The only thing that made me look forward to this event was my Year 2 classmates :( Miss them, now that I'm in Year 3... 

Don't really fancy my Year 3 class but thankfully Lydia and Meryl are in the same class as me :)
Made school less torturous. Can't imagine facing my Year 3 classmates for the next half of the year. Don't know why but some people in the class seems a bit.. FAKE. Yucky yucks.

Hahah I'm not the only one who thinks that way though.

Anyway after Bare Your Sole, went to Kallang Leisure Park for brunch, went home and napped before going out again to meet dear!!!

We ordered Tamago Ramen which is a pork-stock based creamy soup, fried gyoza and fried rice at Cuppage Plaza's OHSHO. They have the best gyoza in town man!

It's crispy and and the skin is thin enough.. 

Tamago Ramen! :)

Had a great time with him! 

His friend, Brendon showed us the countries his fiance and him were planning to go during their honeymoon after getting married next year. Dear and I were also excited because there were so many things we had in common! We want to go skiing together at Melbourne/Korea, we want to feed the penguins/dolphins.. So many things :) So they suggested we go together like a double couple holiday trip!

Next year I might be going to Melbourne! ^_^

And a photo of us to end the post......
Sorry for the damn bad quality it's from my iphone heheh


Day At Asian Civilian Museum

Monday, January 23, 2012

That Thursday, we had to make a fieldtrip down to Asian Civilian Museum at Raffles Place, Boat Quay because the event that was held was close to the purpose of our CDS - textile patterns. 

I didn't go school that day because I was late so I went to see the doctor instead. I was positive that I had conjunctivitis so the main purpose was to get medication. 

The doctor couldn't check my eyes coz I was wearing contact lens so he referred me to Changi General Hospital A&E instead becoz he suspect that I had corneal damage which could lead to blindness. I didn't go in the end :x and just persisted he gave me medication.

Oh well, if that makes you happy, doctor.

After that, went to MRT to meet Michelle Caden and Zhiqing and we headed to Raffles MRT Station and grabbed a quick bite before heading to the museum.

I could have swore it was the most boring museum in the world, but this time it was okay :)

 Patterns of Trade! They were mostly focused on Indian textile patterns.. 

 Stoneware dated back to the 1800s

Ornaments and accessories 

Caden looks really happy in this photo coz he thinks that THAT is his manhood. Gosh

An artist's impression of Budhha's footprint

The making of textile patterns so COOL!

Islamic prayers

Plays in the past :)

At a traditional "teahouse!"

Tang yuan!

Welcome to our "teahouse!"


The three musketeers!

Indian textiles

And oh, I saw this really pretty dress!! So the ladies in the past get to wear such pretty dresses? Damn I think they'll look really gorgeous

A scholar's desk and chair

Islam's studying of the movement of the moon


It is indeed a fruitful trip! Lovin' it! Especially the part when we  had so much fun at the "tea house" haha! 

Check out the last photo of my museum trip, it's the statue of Buddha in the lotus position meditating. I found it eerie however it kinda made me feel.. weird, I don't know.

Well, been meeting Ken for the past few consecutive days, and recently we went to catch the movie"The Viral."  Damn it's pretty good! Featuring Nicholas Tse and Jay Chou :)


Here are some random photos ;)

Went prawning at Pasir Ris farmway!

Reliving his childhood memories at Pasir Ris Park's big big web thingy~

Him cooking for his friends at Aloha Loyang resort! Fried rice and lettuce, it's damn awesome! 

Went to Changi Beach and chilled :)

My babeh and me waiting for the rain to stop~ HEHE

Went Vivocity's Japanese restaurant, Shin Kushiya and ate there!
The price is VERY steep, the plate up there can cost $20 easily ~_~

We ordered Foie Gras (Goose's liver) it's damn nice but for A SUPER SMALL portion, (bite size) it was $10!

The service was average, the food was quite alright but I don't think it's THAT GOOD, given the price we're paying for.
We wanted to make the salmon belly a little cooked but they told us there was a surcharge of $2 -_- 


This vege udon was pretty nice, but I thought I still preferred Sakae Sushi's beef udon!

Raw Salmon Belly.

FYI: I don't eat raw food.. I had my FIRST TRY of that monsterish looking salmon belly and I HATE IT. FUCK How the hell can people eat that?! It's so disgusting! The thought of salmons swimming in the deep blue ocean just kept popping in my mind :(
But he likes it.... so yeah whatever~

The last picture to end off the night!
Me and my beloved bestie, Thadshayiniyyy, you'll always be loved~

Just came back from Reunion dinner at Uncle William's house. It was a sumptuous feast!!!
But I don't have a picture of it :(

My aunt bought a clutch for me :) It's really pretty maybe I'll post it up soon!
AND YES............
