Not long ago, my friends decided to bring me out for dinner as I was kinda down and they brought me to this restaurant hidden in a corner at the newly opened Orchardgateway, Supply & Demand.

From what my friend to me, it’s not easy to get a seat there as it’s always full and you need to make reservations online. If not, be prepared to queue up to more than an hour for a seat. We’re lucky as we didn’t wait for long, approx 20 mins on that day, though my friend made a booking online and only to know that he booked the wrong date LOL!

Brand new 502-room hotel at Orchardgateway showcases revolutionary ‘Jen’ hotel hospitality concept

Hotel Jen Orchardgateway Singapore, the first of a new ‘Jenre’ of fresh, friendly and fuss-free mid-range hotels by Shangri-La International Hotel Management Ltd, opened its doors to the public in Singapore. The opening is the first in a major initiative to launch the Hotel Jen brand in nine key gateway cities across Asia Pacific by March 2015.

A few weeks ago, when my friends and I drove past Upper Paya Lebar Road, I caught sight of a yellow signboard with the words “Three Years in a Balloon” outside a shophouse.

Being a sucker for cafes, I was excited and googled about it. I found out that it was a newly opened café, operated by the same people behind Wimbly Lu. Three Years in a Balloon specialises mainly in desserts such as cakes, waffles and ice cream. I also found out that it was only open on weekdays until 7.30pm. I don’t get home before 10pm usually (the café was near my home) so there was no way I could make it after work.

Still, the hipster in me wanted to try the café – try it before everyone knows about it! – so I made up my mind to find a free afternoon to visit it.

So here I am!

I guess this cafe is one of the most secretive cafe that i’ve ever know. Just like what my title says, many will seek but not all shall find. Phew~ we are the lucky ones to find it 🙂

It’s located along Niven Road but you will not be able to see any store front nor a big sign saying CAFE HERE. Here’s a hint to you, there’s this blue door located along this stretch where you will need to knock on it. Locating this door isn’t hard but getting into this blue door, you might need some luck. If someone opens the door for you, you’re lucky today. If not, then sorry, you will have to come back again another day as seats in there are really limited.

Located in the neighbourhood of Havelock road, just right below Blk 22 sits this cafe, The Tastemaker Store. Designed with a simple layout which makes one feel at home where you are able to spend an afternoon with your friends and family over an enjoyable meal 😉

With the recommendation from my friends and viewing pics of these cafe on instagram, I just have to add it into the list of cafe that i want to visit. It was really an impromptu decision, as my initial plan was to visit the cafe on a weekend afternoon, but since both my friend and I was thinking hard of a place for dinner, we decided to have it there.

Eight Cafe & Bar is located along Bukit Pasoh, on the same stretch of street where The New Majestic Hotel is located. Be prepared to get Wow-ed by the vintagey interior decor 😉

Firstly, controlling your diet is important. Cutting down on sugary stuff and eat more fruits and vegetables helps 😉 It’s not that you can’t indulge in your favourite cakes and ice cream, just that you need to do control yourself from over eating. Other than controlling your diet, excercise is another important factor in helping you to keep a healthy lifestyle! I started visiting the gym since last year and i’m glad that i’m enjoying it thus far 😉

If you’ve been to Penang, i’m sure you would have visited the street art in Georgetown right? If not you can read my post the the Georgetown Street Art here. Just when i was asking myself if one day, these street art will appear in Singapore, since there’s so much restriction here and some see it as a form of vandalism instead of art, was surprised to know that Ernest Zacharevic had started working on the street art here in Singapore!

Finally have the chance to visit this nice little cafe situated along Tyrwhitt Road by the name of The Tiramisu Hero Cafe.

Luckily this time round, we managed to get a table 😉

One of the main objective or the places that i wanted to visit for this Penang trip of mine was the infamous Street Art located around Georgetown 😉

All these beautifully executed wall paints and murals at selected streets of George Town, Penang was by this young Lithuania-born artist, Ernest Zacharevic.

The second day of the trip, we booked the cab driver from the hotel for a half day tour around Penang. It’s so much convenient and you don’t have to worry about how to travel from one place to the other. The whole tour lasted for about 6 hours and we started off at 9am in the morning, with the temples as our first destination.

Upon checking in to our wonderful hotel at Four Points by Sheraton and with the recommendation from the friendly staff, we took a cab arranged by the hotel to Straits Quay which is located not far from the hotel, approx. 10 mins drive to have our lunch.

We settled down for lunch at PappaRich as it’s the only restaurant open with local food. Most of the restaurants there are selling western food, more like a chillax place with beer and wine.

TEMPORIUM is a pop-up store, diner and gallery housed on Dunlop street in quaint Little India. Its a place where you get to enjoy a cup of artisan coffee and pastry, and to do some shopping ranging from fashion to books from a selection of designers, craftsmen and artists.

Its always good to go for a short getaway, away from work and I need one to BREATHE and relax myself. An impromptu decision was made at a cafe some time back and since there’s a nice hotel with good promo and cheap tickets from air asia, we booked this trip, immediately.

2013,我们要2GETHER 4EVER

那一夜,

我们一起见证了永恒的美好

我们一起缔造了一片幸运草绿色荧光海

为了这次的新加坡场,我们费尽了许多时间,精力,人力,体力。。。 就为了想给S.H.E一个别具意义的惊喜。很感谢大家的鼎立配合,这份惊喜才能顺利的完成。

这12年来,S.H.E 可说是已经融入了我的生活里。还记得第一次听到《恋人为满》时,就开始喜欢上她们了。第一次购买她们的专辑是从《美丽新世界》开始,一直到现在,一张都没少。第一次参加签唱会,也是S.H.E。第一次演唱会的初体验也就献给了她们。当时还只是一名学生的我,买了两张$80的票,带着我妈一同看了Double WOW的拼盘演唱会,也是S.H.E首次在新加坡开唱。同样的,每一场新加坡演唱会都没缺席过。今年,我在次带着我妈一同前去观赏这场充满欢笑与泪水的演唱会。

好多第一次都献给了她们耶!回忆满满,真的无法一一写下,不过我知道,这些回忆会一直留在我心里。

80岁的约定,不能毁约哦!

S.H.E, The One & Only…

Cafe Hopping Time! There’s something special about this cafe that we’ve visited a few weeks ago. It’s a simple cafe with very simple decor and seriously, if i were to walk pass the cafe, i wouldn’t have notice it. From the exterior, it looks like a warehouse to me. I even have difficulty locating the door to enter lor! hahaha~

Finally after so long, i’ve managed to get these images done and up here. It’s been 2 months and i’m sure the memories i had with my colleagues will always be with me. This phuket trip marks the last overseas trip i’ll have with my previous company.

Now. enough said, enjoy the photos!

Tamoya Udon is located at the basement of chinatown point, very near to the escalator and entrance of Uniqlo. Was looking for a place to have my dinner with mr c a few months ago, yes too busy to blog lately! :X and he told me that he tried this when he was in Japan before and would like to see how it fair here in Singapore.

Just a brief intro, Tamoya was established in the home on udon, Sanuki (now known as Kagawa) prefecture in 1996 by Sanuki udon champion, Tamotsu Kurokawa

Here’s how to go about ordering your food.

First you choose the type of udon that you want. Personally i prefer the Kake.

Taiwan trip 2013 Stay Real Cafe by darrenbloggie

[台北演唱会初体验CONCERT IN TAIPEI!] series is coming to an end, and in case if you are wondering why you don’t see any concert related entries in this series, no worry as i will be posting them up soon.

Stay Real cafe is located in dong qu where there’s alot of nice boutique shops which is very similar to our haji lane here in singapore. You might be able to find cheap deals but at the same time, you might be leave empty handed too haha~

If you guys know me well enough, you will know that i don’t take beef, despite people telling me how good it is etc. So on my last taiwan trip, we were introduced to this infamous beef noodles stall located in one of the alley near taipei main station. Upon checking they they have other noodles instead of beef, i agreed to go check it out with the rest 😉

Not sure if you have the same feeling as me, i noticed that there isn’t alot of places that you can go to for breakfast in taipei, or probably at ximending (maybe there are other nice places for breakfast but yet to explore them out), 永和豆漿 Yong He Breakfast Shop is one that i will always go to whenever i visit taipei 🙂

WOOHOOO!!! Aug is coming soon and i'm so looking forward to it as first of all, the first day of AUG is my birthday,

June was one of the month that im looking forward to as i’m finally flying off once again on a holiday since my last trip in sept last year. Other than that, it’s also the first time i’m heading to Taipei to catch my favourite group S.H.E comeback concert and most importantly with my ambloves! 😀

Taiwan Trip 2013 VIA HOTEL Taipei

In this entry, i’m introducing you VIA HOTEL that we stayed at. It’s a pretty new hotel located in the heart of Xi Men Ding and it’s actually quite good leh! Here’s my room throughout the stay 🙂

Advertorial

I was having dinner with a few friends the other day and one of them asked me : “Hey! You seems to be leading a very happening lifestyle hor~ see you always eat good food, go travel, go for staycations and all. How do you manage to stay so positive ah? You seem so stress-free!” Hahaha~ I burst out laughing after hearing his question.

Come on, seriously, who can stay positive and stress-free all the time? Every single one of us will have ups and downs in our lives, but it’s about how you manage it. In order to cope, some people resort to clubbing, drinking, or even worse, take DRUGS!

The 2 most common drugs that people take are Ice and Heroin. I seriously have no idea what it gives you by taking them. Maybe it will make you feel happy, excited and worry free? Maybe after taking these drugs, all your problems will be solved, all your worries will be gone and you will lead a happier life? NO! These drugs cannot do that. All the happy sensations you get are not permanent! After the initial ‘high’. All you are left with are the negative effects which will only harm your body!

Like :

Lowered heart rate and respiration
Damage to lungs, kidneys and liver
Dull feeling and tiredness
Difficulty in concentrating
Constipation
Increased heart rate and body temperature
Fits, stroke and death
Damage to heart and nerves
Liver and kidney diseases
Abnormal behaviour with mood swings, confusion, delusion and hallucination
Anxiety and irritability

So you tell me, what benefit will taking drugs give you leh?! NOTHING! So please, stay away from drugs. It will not do you any good! Rather than spending your money on things that will harm you, why not spend it on something that can make you happy, and at the same time good for you? Let me show you how I do it! 🙂

FOOD!

Hey! Say NO to Drugs! Stay Positive and Live Healthy!

Few weeks ago, i wanted to bring my bbfs for makan at the cajun king but it was fully booked that night. So we switched over to Wimbly Lu but still fully occupied.. we move down and finally settled down for some pasta at Rokeby which is located along Jalan Riang as well.

20130615_201340

It wasn’t very crowded like the other 2 when we enter but it got really crowded when we left. looks like the crowd came in slightly later for them.

So.. what’s for dinner? let’s take a look at the menu…

This is super random as ive never try to do a blog entry without using a proper PC or laptop. I’ve saw people using their iPad or even their phone to write a entry out and I always question, seriously can do that meh? And now since I’ve gotten myself a iPad mini, I’m gonna to try it out! So this entry you are reading is created on an iPad mini 😉

So.. The Singapore blog awards is over and yes, I didn’t win anything except a consolation prize for the best dress of the day. But I would still love to thank every single one of you that helped to vote for me daily and at the same time to congrats all the winners! 😀

Went on a short trip to job with my bbfs for food, massage and petrol on Sunday and the jam was quite a terrible one. We left at arc 7 and only managed to reach back at Singapore at 10 plus…

Went for dinner with TK some times ago at chinatown point and as i was having craving for some sushi, we came across this GENKI Sushi which was newly open and decided to have that for dinner. Initially i thought that it’s nothing special but i was a little surprised with the way we were asked to order our sushi!

This duck rice was highly recommended by my bbf zw and local medias as well and he suggested us to try it out on one of our JB trip few week ago. I suppose singaporeans are aware of this stall as we saw quite a few singapore cars over there too.

I’ve heard about reviews of this place but i’ve yet to visit as i don’t drive and it’s quite inaccessible in some ways. But luckily i managed to visit this place on a Saturday afternoon a few weeks ago as this friend of mine, i shall call him KT, drives 😉

Really love the ambient of the restaurant as they are set up with very vintage and retro looking items. At the first glance, you would thought that they are selling vintage furniture instead of food hahaha~

Was randomly looking for a place to have our late dinner after swim and initially we wanted to visit a nice little cafe but too bad it’s closing in 30 mins time and we didn’t want to rush our food so we decided to change another venue. While walking back to the car, we noticed this “coffee shop” whereby there are Caucasian drinking wine, beer, eating pizza and pasta. That caught my attention and out of curiosity, we went to have a look and to realize that it’s actually a restaurant in a “coffee shop” setting.

Whenever i walked pass this cafe located at level one of wisma, from the name Coffee Stars, i would think they its a nice cafe that sells cofffee, tea, cakes, pastries, waffles etc.. a perfect location for a afternoon tea or to chill-lax from the busy shopping in orchard road. BUT! i was wrong about it. :X soo sorry~ To my surprise, it’s actually a restuarant-cafe well know as Coffee Beans by Dao in thailand 🙂

After my first meet-up with the other CG2013 bloggers previously at Thai Express, i’m looking forward to the next meet up and since it’s been SOOO long since i last went KTV, the moment i saw this invitation, i quickly rsvp for it.

I’m sure most of you know about K-Box right? its like a must go during my sec school days whereby we will usually go after school for lunch and to sing.. Throughout these years, KBOX expanded really fast and they’ve held numerous events like fans gatherings and more. And due to the high demand of KTVs, the price from KBOX seems to increase tremendously and it’s pretty expensive at times to go. So we switched to other cheaper alternatives. BUT, am glad to say that they are coming up with cheap prices once again! :DD

I wanna introduce you guys this restaurant newly opened at chinatown point, not sure if they got other outlets anot but it’s my first time there. Secret Garden Restaurant. My first impression of the restaurant from the name was that they should be selling some kind of western food like pasta, steak etc but it’s actually a steamboat restaurant lor~

As we are having out lunch, we decided to have their lunch set menu instead of the steamboat. surprisingly the food taste not bad leh~ 😀 the set comes with a free drink of ur choice. This is one of the homemade tea flower tea if i remember correctly. *paiseh ah. i went for this during jan this year hahaha~

 ns45_01_zps62ec1ddb.jpg

I fall under the 3rd category as im currently serving ORNS (meaning going through your reservist after ORD) and i will be entitled to $80 worth of SAFRA vouchers and a year’s FREE SAFRA MEMBERSHIP!!! okay that sounds pretty cool huh. So what are those vouchers that we will be receiving leh?

It ranges from a WHOLE LOT of categories from food to wellness, entetainment to travel and many more! Let me show you what are some of them!

Can’t believe that i’ve not been blogging for the past 10 days! sorry about that but no worries as im back again! 😛 Glad to meet up with my bbfs over the weekend  and guess we decided to meet up at? Chinatown Point! It’s totally different now with alot more shops in there, and hopefully be able to attract more youngster too.

We had our late lunch at EAT AT TAIPEI and i still rmb the first time when i eat there for lunch with my colleagues, the ru rou fan 卤肉饭 was kinda disappointing. the type of meat they used wasn’t right, and the rice seems to be too soggy. :X So this time round, i decided to try the 炸酱面 and luckily, it taste sooo much better than the previous time. Loved the generous supply of greens and though it may not taste as flavorful as it should from the pic, adding in some chili sauce will add in a tinge of spicy to it, making the whole taste more complete.

The year is coming to an end soon and as what i will usually do in the past, i will be consolidating all the highlights of darren bloggie in the year 2012 in this entry. 🙂 at the same time to recall what i’ve done or achieve for the past one year. So let’s begin with the first month of the year!

Januaury

Went for a 3D2N Bangkok Escapade with my boss and colleagues as out company retreat! 🙂 just in time for me to shop for my cny clothings! 😀

Wee~ It's the festive seasons and i had a few awesome Christmas parties for the past 2 weekends with all my loved ones! :D

My very first Christmas celebration this year was spent with my colleagues and boss as we went for our annual Christmas dinner at Red Dot Brew house located at Dempsey hill.

It’s my first time there and i noticed that whenever i visit Dempsey after work, it will rain for sure, making it extremely inconvenient for me to get that. BUT! surprisingly it didn’t rain this time round and weather was good, cooling and breezy~ 😀

Marina Bay Countdown 2013 Official Blogger As a official blogger of the Marina Bay Countdown 2013, i am very jin ze one okay! i try

Marina Bay Countdown 2013 Official Blogger *Waves* Hello! Together with the other 4 bloggers (Daddy M, The Cambelles, Daeng Rizam, Deenise Yang and myself ),

Super outdated entry 😛 but still im gonna post it! Didn’t managed to attend his birthday party as i was busy with the preparation of my bbfs wedding materials so both Juliana and i decided to give Calvin a belated birthday celebration over a simple dinner 😉

We had our dinner at ramen champion located at Bugis+, recommended by calvin and they seriously sell a WIDE variety of ramen from the different region in Japan!

Marina Bay, what’s came to your mind when you heard of this name? For me, marina bay is the place where i used to go for kite flying, super cheap steamboat bbq buffet whereby you always gets to hear pple screaming here and there (as the aluminum foil tends to catch fire very often) and a super inaccessible place. As singapore grows and throughout all the years, it changes, alot i would say.

This is supposed to be up like long ago and was thinking if i should post about it since it’s like 2 months ago? Had lunch with Juliana, since our workplace are pretty near each other, we went for salad at the SPR.MRKT located just opposite Amoy Street Food Centre.

Totally love the concept of this small little restuarant, or i would say cafe where they sell food, and cute little items whereby you can shop ard while waiting for your food to be served.

Any bread lovers out there? Love eating healthy? Then you will definitely be interested with what i’m going to introduce to you!

Organic sprouted bread from Olive & Green!

What’s so special about these bread ?

Olive & Green’s Organic Sprouted Breads are made with their signature Hippocrates Organic Exra Virgin Olive oil and organic sprouted wheat, which made these breads 100% vegan and contain much more nutrients than any other type of bread currently sold in the market! There isn’t any sugar, garlic or onions added to it. All the breads are naturally sweetened with organic fruits, Jordan dates & nuts. Yumm Yumm~~

This is a warming to those whom are feeling hungry at the moment as you might just hate me even more for posting this entry at this hour and bombing you with all the FOOD images! 😛

ALOHA!!! Didn’t know that other than ma maison, there is another restaurant by the name of ALOHA Ma Maison (under the same group) and it’s located at the newly opened bugis+ (formerly known as Iluma)

So calvin, darren sim and i decided to bring juliana there for dinner to celebrate her belated birthday 😉

Loved the decor of the restaurant! very nicely done~~

Sponsored Trip by Korea Tourism Organization

Counting down to less than 24 hours, I am going to FLY over to KOREA once again! woohoo~ and this time round, i will be going on a 2D1N tour at gyeongju and the most important part is to attend the Gyeongju Hallyu Dream Concert featuring a total of 26 KPOP artistes~! 😀

Just to list a few of the artistes below that will be performing at the concert. Any of them your favourite? let me know, i will snapped more photos for you! hahaha~

I’m not a alcoholic person if you know me well, i mean i do drink occasionally but im not one whom will go to any pub or bar that frequently just to drink and chill. Usually i drink only when there’s like special occasion? Birthday, dinner etc..

So the other day, visited a wine shop with my fren which he introduced me to and i couldn’t believe that i actually tried a total of 5 bottles of wine that night. I think i must be crazy! lol~ Before i continue on what happened, let me introduce you more about this wine shop 😉

I’m sure you guys are very familar with this word ZALORA right? their ads can be found almost EVERYWHERE online! So~ as a shopaholic and one whom love shopping online, how can i give it a miss right?! So, one fine day, i decided to click on the banner and go on a shopping journey on Zalora!

Always loved those shopping site that categorizes their items into MENSWEAR and WOMENSWEAR section as it’s so much easier to look for the things that you want. Not forgetting the SALE section!!!

Once again! went on a short short trip into JB with my bbfs! this time round with Zhiwei’s new car!! woohoo~ and driving into JB is SUPER convenient lor! bascially you don’t have to leave your car at all. Just stay in the car, pass your passport to the immigration officer at both singapore and malaysia custom will do.. paiseh ah~ am abit sua ku~~~

Recently i just blogged about the Diner En Blanc that will be happening on the 30th Aug, next thursday. Was initially very looking forward to it and was stressing on my outfit for this event as i wanna look as good in all white as well. BUT looks like i dun really have to stress that much about it anymore.

Read about the whole incident on what happened here on DanielFoodDiary and Moonberry blog post.

So we are now all OFFICIALLY being UNINVITED. It makes no difference to me whether they invite me or not la. Just wanna take this opportunity to meet up with all my blogger friends and have a great time enjoying ourselves at the event.

This year, i organised a total of 2 birthday party, with 2 different themes, at 2 different location with 2 different groups of friends.

Special thanks to Gardens by the bay for the invitation, i finally managed to visit this beautiful garden located just right behind marina bay sands!

was there early to go on a tour around gardens by the bay as most of the other gardens by the bay official bloggers had already went for their tour. Was to busy and didn’t get to attend for the past few events, so this time round, no matter what i must definitely go for it!

It’s really a very good location for taking photos! everything seems soo surreal!

It’s been a tiring day at work after a long long meeting and you are looking for a nice place away from the buzzling city to chill for the night? or clinching on to a buisness proposal which you’ve been working hard on and would like to celebrate for all the hard work you’ve put in? or looking for a place to hold a mini gathering together with your loved ones or long lost friends?

Let me introduce you this place which is located away from the city, in a quaint little nook just off the new and very hip Dempsey catchment of F&B establishments.

Backyard @ Dempsey!

our menu for the night! what a spread right?!

Special thanks to Marina Bay Singapore, Marina Bay Sands and Skypark for the invitation, i got to go up to the skypark last saturday for a wonderful, breath-taking and memorable fireworks display for the ndp preview! I’ve always wanted to go up to the skypark and thanks to them, i managed to fulfill my wish! next will be the infinity pool! haha 😛

Singapore really changed alot. The skyline is just SOOO BEAUTIFUL!!!

Have you ever cook for your family or your loved ones? It can be a very simple meal, don’t have to be something very sumptuous.  Most importantly is the thoughts that counts 😉

Not long ago, Daniel Ang from Danielfooddiary started this blogger initative to cook for family during the month of July and i’m glad to be part of it.

I've always wanted to hold a mini party in a nice hotel room with my loved ones the past few years, but due to

THANKS EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU FOR ALL THE BIRTHDAY WISHES that came flooding in when the clock strikes 12am on 1st Aug! :D

Just before i went for my annual ICT, i went for a short short one day trip with my bbfs to JB! basically just to go in relax, makan, shop abit as stuff over there are so much cheaper than in singapore 😉 Another reason of heading in was because my bbfs are looking for a printer shop over there to print their wedding card invitation.

So we meet up as usual in the morning for breakfast at mac donald at causeway point before taking a bus to the checkpoint.

I felt so happy writing this entry as i was really glad that this trip was made possible! It’s been SOOO long since we last travel together! the last trip we went together was last year april to bali. SO, we decided to make use of this 得來不易的 long weekend to go somewhere near, which is JB for a 2D1N eat and shop trip ! 😉

As it was a good friday that we are heading in to JB, we expected there to be heavy traffic. Therefore we decided to meet up early at causeway point early in the morning for breakfast before we head over to the singapore custom. we took a bus from woodlands bus interchange to the custom whereby we were requested to drop a distance away from the custom as the jam was really bad..

P1050567.jpg

Here’s my last entry for my 4D3N Bali trip with amblove. Basically on the third day, we decided to fully utilized our villa and to visit the beach nearby. How can you not visit the beach when you are in bali right?

Breakfast as usual was awesome. Tried something different today, which is the pancake with banana 🙂

P1040616.jpg

So continuing from my day 1 entry, let’s continue with day 2! 🙂 Staying in a villa was super shiok as early in the morning when u wake up, breakfast are ready and all u have to do is just to sit down and eat. felt like a boss sia~ or i would say KING! hahaha~

Finally i’m blogging about this! my first overseas trip with my amblove and my first Villa stay as well! Too much things on hand to do that i’ve no choice but to postpone this entry all the way till now :X so let’s begin! 🙂 We met up with each other at the airport in the morning as we have a morning flight to catch.

P1040172.jpg

Daisy & Caijun made a surprise appearance at the airport to join us for breakfast and at the same time to send us off~ Seriously felt SUPER LOVED lo!! thanks for waking up so early and the effort of coming down to send us off~ 😀

Here’s some pictures taken with my bbfs for the past few weeks 😉 it’s always fun meeting up with them! we can meet up to chill and zhor bor~ or go for ktv, or endless makan session in a day! haha~

After ending work on friday with a sumptous company lunch at yum cha (yes yum cha again muahaha~ :D), it seems like my busy day just started!

Tried making reservation for yum cha and was informed that reservations allowed only for 8 pax and above.. so we decided to try out luck when we visited chinatown for cny shopping spree and surprisingly, NO QUEUE at all and we managed to get a table very smoothly! 😀 awesome! mum was really happy as she was having a bad craving for yum cha dim sum ! haha~!

As usual, visting chinatown for chinese new year shopping is like a must for my family every year~!

So.. we decided to visit demsey hill! 😉 and one of my bbf managed to snap a pic with fandi ahmad. i dun have a pic here as it’s taken with his camera.

It’s really a very nice ambience to chill at! 😀 personally i like it very much.

I’m really thankful that my hair is finally back to the length that i wanted it to be… after a torturous haircut in july for my ICT, i looked super duper NOOB and seriously i hate to have that kind of hairstyle as it just dun suit me~! You know that different face shape suit different hairstyle de ma~ and i agree that my face is not that SHARP and i dun have nice feature, soo… those super short hair just dun fit me la~

But what to do? Just because of a ICT, we are forced to cut till like ah gong ah tooo. Argh~ after 2 years of haunting us, you still won’t let us off~ A personal image is VERY important in the working industry. Imagine you have to cut a super GONG hairstyle just for that ICT and when you head back to work and need to meet ur client with that GONG hairstyle of yours, i tell you, totally cannot make it la~!

SO why torture us to cut our hair THAT freaking short just like what we have during our ns days?! can’t it be like a acceptable haircut, not too fancy etc kind will do? i dun mind dying my hair back to black for ict cos i can dye it back to color anytime i want and most importantly, its INSTANT! not like hair that takes a freaking few weeks or months to grow!!!

ARGH~! i just can’t stop ranting about this stupid thing that we needa do. OK~ so here’s how i look like when i went for my ict.

It bonding time with my boss and colleagues! One of my colleagues make it through the probation period and we went for company dinner together at Kushin Bo buffet located at Great World City.

Surprisingly, i didn’t eat alot!!! i only went for like 3 mini rounds before i end with some pastries and dessert. but that colleague of mine loved buffet! he can go for many rounds~!

*outfit of the day with my porter bag which i’ve bought in taiwan ;)*

Birthday celebration for jiaxin, one of my amblove at this restaurant located outside raffles city. Seriously i have no idea on its existence leh~ lolx~

Surprisingly, the ambience was quite good, quite a chill-out place which serves a wide variety of food, drinks and desserts~

Celebrated one of my bbfs birthday last week at mad for garlic. The food was great which is why i recommended my friends there for dinner 😉

And here’s what we ordered… You dun see these piles of leaves ah~ they are simply delicious ok! yummy salad!

Despite sleeping at ard 4am the night before, surprisingly i still managed to wake up at 7am to wash up and prepare for breakfast at 8am! There’s actually 3 different restuarant for you to have your breakfast at with the breakfast coupon and since it’s a really sunny bright day, we decided to have our breakfast at the Manhattan Table, which is located at 25F with a spectacular view of the city! 😀

Sponsored Trip by F&N Sparkling Drinks

Before i start my post proper, i gonna thanks F&N Sparkling Drinks for sponsoring this trip!!!

If you are a loyal reader or “fans” of my blog, you will know that i actually won the Spread the Groove title from the Spread the Groove Blogging Challenge organized by F&N sparkling Drinks for the Singapore Dance Delight 2011. The purpose of this trip is to cover the GRAND FINALS of Japan Dance Delight whereby Joyce & the Boys will be representing Singapore to compete with the other competitors! If you missed out on the fun we bloggers had during our “challenge” days, you can read more about it here.

So finally, i get to fly to Japan!!! woohoo~ initially was to Osaka but they changed the venue to Tokyo this year instead! 😀

Woohoo! i'm so in love with hotel stay! loved those super duper comfy bed :D Thanks to marlene, whom booked a room at the regent

Another overdue but gonna make it simple entry.

Had a simple 21st birthday celebration for peilin at Brotzeit restaurant few weeks ago.

Recently, i was randomly searching online about transforming black iphone into white iphone… and i came across this much more cheaper way of transformation 😀

So i did some research and managed to find the online store which is on gmarket. Here’s the link, don’t say i nvr say yea~ 😛

and here’s what you get from them.

it comes with a front and back white sticker, a customized screen protector and a piece of cloth or watever u call that as.

So this is how u paste the stickers onto your phone. (i took on video but sadly to say, the file was corrupted and i can’t redo the whole process again… -.-“)

and here’s my end product! 😀

Not sure if you guys are aware that i was one of the M1 Blackberry Ambassador for the past 2 and a half months, but the main purpose of this post was to share with you guys on my experience as a M1 Blackberry Ambassador, which sadly to say, wasn’t a pleasant one…

In May 2011, i was really excited when i was notified that i was being selected as a M1 Blackberry ambassador. Details given at first was that being a MBA (in short for M1 Blackberry Ambassador cos very tiring to type out the whole name yea!), you will receive

  • The latest Blackberry smartphone
  • M1 smartphone plan
  • Blackberry service
  • $50 Paypal credit to buy apps from Blackberry App World

Sounds exciting isn’t it?!

So i happily attended the briefing at Intercontinental but was somehow getting alittle disappointed after the training programme. We aren’t really being “selected” as the MBA as we need to hit a certain quota of SALES. OK, that makes me sounds more like a salesman than a ambassador. (From my knowledge, a ambassador is to use the products and share it with friends and the public right?) but sadly to say, we needa hit a quota of 25 sales in order for us to stay in the MBA programme.

BUT luckily we dun have to pay anything for the monthly bill and the handset.

Now here’s my FIVE disappoinment :

I’m a herbal soup lover and usually i loved the herbal soup that my aunt cooked! I know some of you out there dislike the herbal taste right? but do u know that herbal soup are actually very good for our health?

Different herbals used in the soup have different nutritional values in it. Examples of the most commonly used herbals are :

After a very long period of time (approx 2 weeks) or not meeting my bbfs, we finally get to meet each other again last

After watching this year ndp2011, i think overall not that bad la.. but i dunno why they included songs from wonder girls and justin bieber.. but luckily there didn’t change the lyrics. imagine another fun pack song, i will faint lo~

seriously every year, what i look forward to is the NDP songs! to me, it’s something very important and it’s like the spirit to the whole NDP celebration theme.

“HOME” by kit chan is the best NDP song ever and im sure everyone knows about it right?

and other than this, my next favourite one will be

OK i know this post is kinda overdue and i know YOU (aaron yan’s fan si out there are waiting for the pics here right?) SO here it is.. not alot of pics as i only pick up those that are better ones and PLEASE!! credit accordingly if you are using any of the images below, be it post it on facebook, twitter, blog, forums etc… as long as u use it, u credit it ok? 😉 i trust u guys therefor im not adding in any watermarks for the pics below.

Autograph session was held at IMM level 3 garden plaza and it’s been quite some time since we last do a event already.. therefore im kinda looking forward to it and phew.. it was a successful one 😉

my last part of my Fintage1986 Birthday celebration ends with my amblove (yes amblove once again). The theme set previously was summer edition as we intend to go for picnic but due to time constriction as we wanted to catch the NDP preview fireworks, we decided to have early dinner instead of picnic. BUT~ it’s still summer edition as we everyone was supposed to be dressed in fintage or summer look… but actually i dun mind them not dressing accordingly as i know it’s not easy for everyone to have the clothings that fit perfectly well into the theme 😉 SEE i so shang jie ren yi lo! muahahaha~

Special thanks to my amblove for this wonderful birthday treat! ;D 2D1N stay at Hard Rock Hotel , Resort World Sentosa!!! Earlier of the day

Had my birthday celebration with my family members (my mum and my aunties) right after i ended my 5 days ICT 2 weeks ago… Felt really relaxing that day as everything was nicely planned for me! previously i was the one planning for my 3 aunties birthday celebration (will be blogging about it soon) and this time round it’s their turn to plan~ haha~

They made a reservation at Hotel Royal, Jade Room Restaurant for their famous steamboat buffet (according to what my mum told me and the taxi uncle whom drove us there).

HAD a wonderful day yesterday, though i didn't went out for any celebration as i had mine previously with my bbfs & amblove, but

happy birthday to me~

happy birthday to me~

happy birthday to meee~~

happy birthday to me~!

Yoo~! Tell me what’s so special about the month of August other than National Day?

It’s My BIRTHDAY!!!

If you guys know me well enough, i loved to have a theme for my birthday celebration. Previous year was D1823 Celebration, last year was 24 Coloration… and this year i’m naming it as

Floral + Vintage + 1986 (my birth year) = Fintage1986 😉

and we went for dinner at the manhattan fish market located at marina square as i think it’s less crowded over there. But anyway, thanks to my super efficient bbf, Diana Lim, she make a reservation before hand 😀

YOOHOO! All my beloved readers, friends, bloggers and followers! I’m really happy as i’ve WON something from the Singapore Blog Awards 2011 this year!

DEAL.com.sg BEST SHOPPING BLOG

Thank you so much for all the supports given! I’ll do another proper post to thank all of you yea!~

Meanwhile, i shall blog about the ceremony with the pictures i have on hand first. Will be updating this entry with new pics once i’ve gotten them 🙂

Was really glad and happy that i’m able to attend the ceremony last Saturday (23rd July) at Shanghai Dolly!

We were kinda late for like 10 mins? but luckily there are still pple queuing up at the registration counter.

WOOHOO! after weeks of voting and judging by the judges, the 10 winners in the 10 main categories and 4 winners from the 4

YOOHOO readers! I'll be going for my very first ICT (in camp training) tomorrow for 5 days! feeling excited? ok la.. the part where

Was kinda excited with the dinner as it’s been really long since the full BBFs gathered together already, except zhi wei whom’s not ard that night.

We went for dinner at Xin Wang HK Cafe!

and i realized that they’ve new addition in their menu! 😉

So i’m sure you must be thinking what tripple “D” am i referring to right? The tripple “D” refers to Drink.Drank.Drunk… We had a farewell dinner for one of my colleague, Joey and at the same time a welcoming dinner for my new colleague which will be replacing her at Brewerkz. My very first time visiting there and it’s really a place for pple whom loved to drink… beer.

We always love to chill at coffee bean or starbucks whenever we meet up for dinner, be it on a weekday or weekend.

Other than chit chatting, gossiping and catching up with one another, another very “important” activity that we will do is to play with our iphone.. and we are all addicted to Fishing Joy!

Celebrated my aunty birthday at early June and we went for hi-tea buffet at Olive Tree Restaurant, located at Intercontinental Singapore. The reason why i chose this place was because i got to tried out some of their food during my M1 Blackberry ambassador briefing there last month.

Food was actually so so.. not really that much of variety to choose from, though they have some very special dishes in the buffet spread. examples like…

BAK KUT TEH!!! surprisingly good! peppery enough. I LIKE!

Always love late night outing with bbfs! this time round it was actually quite a impromptu last min suggestion and we decided to go for Shi sha session at haji lane… though i seldom smoke shi sha la.. but i can still order a drink and chill the night away with my bbfs, chit chatting, playing card games etc ma~

That night was kinda horrible la.. we played true or dare and hmm discuss quite explicit content that night too. shall not elaborate much on that. LOLx~

Was invited by COCA COLA to their 125th Anniversary Birthday party at NOMU last week together with a few other bloggers to celebrate this wonderful occasion with them 😉

Loved the deco ! everything just fit into the coca cola theme! 😀

Yoohoo! It’s Cha Ba Lang Blogging time! these images was taken like a month ago and was supposed to be published like quite some time ago but i only managed to do so NOW! haha~ better to be late than never ma~

Lunch set meal at Pura Vida. Ard $10+ per person which includes a salad OR soup, a drink, a main course of your choice. We ordered the fish & chips. Not bad. got the hoe garden taste haha~

Continue from my day 3 post, after heading back to my room and took a damn shiok hot water bath, i felt totally refreshed and awake! So, i decided to lay all my shopping loots out on the bed and snap some pics 🙂 that’s what i will usually do when i travel overseas 😉

Rise & Shine! It’s Day 3 of our Hong Kong trip and we are dedicating our day for SHOPPING today! woohoo~! 😀

Outfit for the day… wear something simple so it’s easier for you to do shopping, especially when you needa try on clothings and stuff 😉

after almost a week from my day 1 post, i’ve finally completed my day 2 images and videos! Ok, my day 2 in hong kong is the most packed, tiring BUT FUN day as we went to 2 major attractions there, which is the Big Buddha and DISNEYLAND!!!

*tips : you should totally dedicate one FULL day for disneyland. half day in disneyland is definitely not enough!*

outfit for the day! sponsored by VHOGE.com (website will be up soon) THANKS!

My second trip of the year and it’s really like a dream come true for me as i’ve been wanting and hoping to go for a trip to hong kong. I wanna go there 买东西吃东西,and most importantly to visit the Disneyland!!! it’s like i think the cheapest disneyland you can go to ba. Anyway, i shall talk more about disneyland when i post my entry about it .

So, this is a company trip, sponsored by my boss (THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!) and i was really very excited, happy and looking forward to the trip ! never thought that there will be a company trip for me as well hahaha~ 😀

Flying off on thursday morning 5th May, exactly 2 weeks after i’m back from my bali trip and it’s my first time flying off from terminal 3! wee~~

yoohoo! i’m back in singapore already and this post was actually meant to be published while im away in hong kong, BUT! i got no time to write the entry and schedule it (all pics i prepare and upload hao hao before i left sg le leh~), therefore i’m writing it now.. belated mother’s day post, ok right?

SO… last last weekend, brought my mum and aunties to this Teochew Swatow Seafood located at toa payoh for dinner.

Finally at last, got to try out and visit this, i would say rather nice and chilling dining cafe by the name of 15 mins, located at lasalle art school 😉

It was really a very last minute plan for a surprise celebration for the taurus babies in my bbfs as we just got back from bali not long ago, and we didn’t have much time with the planning. SO.. i decided to plan on and given a short period of time (1 day plus) to plan.. we manged to come out with something. JUST THAT… too bad.. the surprise failed eventually hahaa. my bbfs are all too smart le la~!

okok.. enough of my long story… Now, let me show you what’s we’ve ordered there 😉

WOOHOO~~ did i mention that i just had my haircut?! if u follow me on twitter, you will know la. Anyway.. i seriously loved my current hairstyle.. what you think? nice? looks better?

HARLO!! got missed me anot?! hahaha~ okok~ im back from bali and it’s really a wonderful and relaxing trip la~ but nope, i’m not going to blog about my bali trip yet as im still in the midst of filtering and editing those pictures 😉 BUT!! i’ve prepared another post ! 😉

2nd April, Sat, the day where we’ll be performing together with ella on the stage of the Singapore Entertainment Awards 2011! We really considered ourselves as some superstar/artists ok! We booked ourselves a total of 3 rooms at Fairmont Hotel for a night!

If you know the entertainment industry well, usually those artistes will be checked into a hotel room for preparartion before heading for a ceremony right? So, we must also do the same ma~! we also needa 梳妆打扮! haha~

photo

After having our dinner at the Kallang leisure park, (not very satisfying food from the food court), we proceed over to the singapore indoor stadium to meet up with our members whom are going on stage as we are going to have a rehearsal with

We are very supportive one ok~ we do not care whether if they are coming individually or as a group, we will still go to the airport and welcome there. That’s how united the S.H.E fans are!~

While waiting for her arrival, we bought a box of pandan cake and decided to arrach a short message on it and pass it to her 🙂

OK! you might laugh at me or say why im so sua kuu.. nvr eat at the manhattan fish market before… BUT!! I DUN CARE~ haha~ but seriously la~ it’s true! i always eat at Fish & Co and i was ranting about it the other day about this..

SOO… my amblove decided to have dinner there last week! 😀

But no worries as Cha Ba Lang blogging is BACK AGAIN!!! *throw confetti*

This is one overdue post as i’m very busy with all my F&N entries recently.. SO! today, we shall take a break from F&N entries and let me blog about something else yea~

So, this post is dedicated to one of my amblove, Shi Hui as we decided to give her a birthday surprise 😉

We decided to plan a kite flying session on one of the weekend but to make her feel sianz… we told her told most of us couldn’t make it.. haha! but we are actually planning something for her 😉

Our plan was to write her name and paste it on the kite, fly the kite and let her spot her name in the sky!

12th March 2011 A date that all the 20 finalists are looking forward to. A date where 800 youth gathered at Wave House Sentosa to

This is one extremely outdated entry and i’ve decided to blog about it first and share with you guys on my first fine dining experience while waiting for more images to come.

Had a great dining experience at Nazt Bistro Lounge, located along Club Street for our company chinese new year reunion dinner.

Totally loved the ambience of the restaurant and since the name was named as Nazt, you can find bird cages as part of the decoration in the restaurant~

My new iPhone 4 cover in WHITE! Damn CHIO and nice lo! I can has a iPhone 4 in WHITE! muahahaha~

This is also another quite backdated post liao. This chillout session was one that i’m extremely looking forward to as it’s been very very long since i last met up with my bbfs le.. and i’m MISSING them so much! It was supposed to be a complete BBFs meet up but rachel got chingay to watch so she didn’t make it for this. 🙁

I can has a iPhone 4 too!

 

Finally i managed to get myself a iphone 4 and i know you guys must be saying in ur mind : “wahlao. it not a new phone anymore and it’s launched like so long ago plus iphone 5 coming out soon le, why still get a iphone 4?”

BUT i DON”T CARE! MUAHAHA~!

Actually i seriously think that this is the best timing to get a iphone 4 now because:

I’m not sure if you guys have watched this 2 videos circulating around the internet, especially on facebook on valentine’s day where these 2 couples decided to end their relationship on this very “Special” day. SO GUM right?

The moment i watched these videos, the first thing that came to my mind is that, omg! everything is sooo faked la..

Before i continue to list down the reasons, you guys should watch it first.

It’s Cha Ba Lang Blogging TIME!!!

Yu sheng.. i guessed most of you ate that during the chinese new year right? and i’m sure most of u ate it for like more than once hor?! For me, i ate a total of 3 yu shengs this year, which i think isn’t alot as there are pple eating more than 10 yu shengs lo!

My first yu sheng was with my cousins during our dinner on chu san. not bad, quite nice.

actually in the past, i dun really like to eat yu sheng cos there is this ginger slices or taste in it and most of the time, i will just eat the crispy thingy… but dunno why, now i quite addicted to it… haha!

If you are a frequent reader of my blog, im sure you are aware that i like to “play” ard with my hair right?

*ahem dun anyhow think ah~*

I’m like trying different hair dyes, hairstyles etc.. and for this time round for chinese new year.. i did 2 kinds of hairstyles :

 

wavy perm and straight…


House visiting can be either very fun and happening or bored till you simply just can't wait to leave the place. Luckily, my house

Every year, it’s always a must for us, OR me i would say to decorate our home with those ANG GONG GONG chinese new year decorations.. Like that then got the xi qi yang yang feel ma~ Correct?

So, we will usually head down to the chinatown cny pasar malam and look ard for the new designs of the year and we will go to the neighborhood area to hunt for the similar decorations as they are selling it much more cheaper than those in chinatown. BUT, if it’s already very cheap in chinatown, we will just buy it there la~

OH! another thing to take note, do not buy too much of those decorations with the zodiac of the year images on it as u can like use for one time nia~ unless u want to keep it for a cycle and use it again…  SIAO EH!

OK! Now.. i shall show u some of my home decorations for the chinese new year~~ 😉

My very first ang pow for the lunar new year was given from my boss! wooohooo~~!   very very simple reunion dinner with my parents. though

最近不知怎么搞的,雨不停的下, 已经连续下了三天了耶~ 还好我上个星期已经到了牛车水去逛年货。 那如果你还没去的话,就让我达人以照片,带你一同到红彤彤的牛车水走一走吧~

It was my mum’s birthday last saturday and together with my aunties, we brought her out for birthday lunch at this Chao Zhou Inn which sells authentic teochew cuisine. 🙂 and since my mum and aunties are teochew, therefore i guessed the food over there will suit them 🙂

15th Jan, the day that we’ve been waiting for is finally here! as we are all extremely excited for HEBE music showcase in singapore! woohoo~~~

Meet up with some of the amblove at bugis to collect our lightsticks and since we are in bugis, how can we not get a cup of KOI!?

HAHAHA~ the title of the post is very obvious that this is going to be a entry on my new haircut right? and Chinese New Year is coming soon, therefore it’s time to get a new haircut..

As my previous hair was rather THICK (though i quite like it) but i’m thinking of trying out something different, yet dun wan to spoil the style of my current hairstyle… So i discuss with my hairstylist on what i want and how i want it to be like…

Here’s some pics of my thicker hair~~~ as it’s getting too thick, i uses black pins and pinned up the inner area of my hair, so that at least there is a shape there.. and it look like this.

looks alittle boring right?

SOO… i curled it alittle to give it some wavy texture…

It’s been soo long since we went out for a proper dinner, therefore, i’ve decided to give my parents a treat that night. We went for dinner at PuTien 莆田as my mum is craving for their lor mee ever since she ate it for the first time, she fell in love with it~ and at the same time my dad wanted to try it as well since my mum had been telling him how nice it is.. haha~

 

and here it is.. the famous lor mee from 莆田…

It's Cha Ba Lang Blogging time again! ;) Met up with a few amblove and isabel for a simple dinner and chill our night away

My very first meal of the brand new year was spent with my army buddies at Tonkichi japanese restaurant located at the basement of suntec city. Heard from one of them that they are famous in their pork meat. So, how can i give it a miss right?

Hopefully its not too late for me to blog about my countdown celebration now. haha.

On the last day of 2010, had a new year eve lunch with my bosses and colleague before heading over to my friends house for steamboat session, at the same time to celebrate zhiwei’s birthday.

After steamboat, we decided to head down to the marina bay and join in the crowd to welcome 2011 and to see the spectacular fireworks!

We reached there at ard 11.30 and the place was already very crowded, but luckily we managed to find a carpark at one raffles quay and surprisingly,  it’s not very expensive 😉

On  new year’s eve, we went for our company nye lunch at the Mouth Restaurant 地茂馆 which i think they are famous for their dim sums (cos i saw most of the tables are ordering dim sums)

Overall i think the food served are pretty ok for me with a few which i think it tastes really good!

The Century Egg with minced pork congee was surprisingly tasty! loved the smooth texture of the congee and the crispy you tiao, i think it’s marvelous!

*HAPPY NEW Year Everyone! this is my first post for the year of 2011 and im dedicating it to my bbfs, MR DONALD~! (gan dong anot! lol~)*

Celebrated my bbfs, Donald’s birthday in advance last night together with our countdown dinner at diana’s place.

Enjoying pipping hot steamboat in such a cooling and chilling weather last night was extremely awesome! SHIOK la~!

2010 is coming to an end in a few hours time and soon, we’ll be welcoming 2011~! and i guess its the best time of the year to do a summary of my blog now!  I’ve consolidated the top 12 events of the year for each month in 2010!!!

SO… This is definitely a must read entry of the year! all the jing hua is consolidated in this post. and a good start for readers that just started reading and following my blog 😉

My christmas eve and christmas day was spent with my amblove.We met up with each other on christmas eve for a mini dinner and dift exchange. As our group wasn’t really huge that night and we are looking for something much more budget, (you know xmas eve the food all very expensive one and last min reservation sure no place de..) so i decided to bring them over to the pitstop cafe!

and i ordered my all time favourites,

This is the second last entry for my xmas celebration for the year of 2010. Last thursday, was our company christmas celebration and we went for dinner at ma maison at central where they served japanese food in a western style. I really like the place as the ambience was superb 🙂 a place that i will definitely be back again 😉

As most of us are busy for this year christmas eve, therefore we have a simple meetup a week before christmas. Was really happy about it as it’s been quite some time since we last meet up le~~~

Went over to Orchard road the other with diana and zw… and i must say that i really loved the christmas decoration this year along orchard road.. it’s really sparkling and glittery this year! I LIKE I LIKE~!!!

My second christmas celebration was with my mum and aunties last sat. My first was our S.H.E Ambience christmas celebration held the week before. It’s more or less a must for us to have a mini christmas celebration every year and i always loved it! We will assigned different task for everyone and have gift exchange as well!

This year i was appointed to buy a log cake and after drawing lots, i’m supposed to buy a present for my mum.. HAHA! JUST NICE as i know what she wants! 😉

Xmas tree… a must have!!!

At last, finally managed to squeeze sometime out to sort and edit the images taken at our christmas party.We had lots of fun that night, with food, games and prizes! We hoped, YOU, our members enjoyed yourself too!

Our party was held at GlassRoom Cafe located at SMU. It’s really a great place to chill out at and a great venue for holding a mini event. 🙂

while waiting to enter the cafe… we camwhored~

Our “Special Guest” welcoming our members at the main enterance 😉

Welcome to my Cha Ba Lang Blogging part 2, basically updating some pics which can't fit into a single entry, which is why i

went for a morning brisk walk with my mum and aunties on a bright and sunny saturday morning at MacRitchie reservoir. Air was fresh, weather was good, just that the only thing i dislike was the muddy track…

This post is kinda outdated as the exhibition has already ended like a week ago ? haha~ actually wanted to blog  about this on the day i visited the exhibition but was too tired and got some other stuff to work on, therefore the delay.

However, i still think i should still write this entry to share with you guys on those photos taken. (Especially for hello kitty lovers~!)

The mini exhibition was held at marina parco, (just in case you guys are not sure, it’s at millenia walk.) and it’s actually quite a small one la.. basically just a small exhibition area with the various hello kitty handphone charms and selling some hello kitty related products lor~

A collaboration with gloomy…

OK! if you’ve been following me on my twitter, you must be aware that i’ve been making good use of the public holidays and weekends to tidy up my room right?

So today, this post, i will be showing you some of the images i took throughout the packing process.

Was packing through my drawers and various boxes and was surprised that i actually collected so much S.H.E related stuff! really a very memorable 9 years down the road sia~

My notebook when i was still a member in S.H.E Ambience…

and i’m sure most of you are unaware that S.H.E very first endorsement in singapore was for Fuzion Smoothies drink right?!

Had a wonderful and extremely FULL dinner at swensen with amblove on monday. Meeting serene, yi wen and shi hui and thanks to aaron

Met up early with some of the amblove for a mini shopping spree at somerset 313 and i’m very glad that i managed to get the hoodie jacket that i’ve been eyeing on from uniqlo 😀 woohoo~!

Followed by a mm kinda expensive fast food meal from superdogs. $9.00 for a meal! the burger ok lor.. but the onion rings and fries taste quite nice.

Thank you everyone for your effort and time to attend our recruitment drive on last Saturday at the heeren. Response was extremely overwhelming that we actually extended our timing to 6.30pm instead or 5pm!

Briefing our new members on the terms and conditions of the fc while some filled in the application form.

This post is specially dedicated to my bbf, Rachel, whereby her birthday falls on the 8th nov, which is today!

Went for a mini and simple advanced birthday celebration with my other bbf yesterday at the FAT FISH THAI STEAMBOAT. overall there’s quite a wide variety of steamboat dishes to choose from, and i must say the soup are superb. both the clear and tom yum soup! nice~!

i know i’ve not been blogging very frequently for the past week as i’m really really very sick.. most of the time when i reach back home, bath, dry my hair and i go to bed le~ never even on my com at all, which is sooo not me lor!

luckily, im feeling much better now and it’s time for me to do some little updates here!

Meet up with my bbfs on a random night after work to prepare a birthday card for mr marc…

Last night was the Mid Autumn Festival, in chinese also known as 中秋节. This year, or maybe there was such carnival in the past few years that i didn’t notice about, together with my bbfs, we decided to go 赏花灯 on one of the night at the central, along the singapore river…

the 12 zodiac on display which i find some of them looking kinda weird.. lol~

i'm in the mist of preparing a few blog entries that hopefully will be able to be published next week ;) so meanwhile, while

Ever since the MBS aka Marina Bay Sands opened officially, we’ve yet to find some time to go down and explore ard. Therefore we decided to make good use of the public holiday last friday for a visit to MBS 😉

Almost complete…

the little river that flows in the middle of the mall… realized that most of the casino have this little feature/attraction. Example like genting highland, macau and now in singapore!

if i’m not wrong. it’s $5 for a ride… and cheaper price for shoppers that spend a certain amount in the shopping mall…

your might think that this huge inverted dome shape is just a part of the building design right?

but it’s actually more than that!

guess what it is?

Celebrated my birthday with my BBFs on saturday, right after the BAPE Charity event at the mandarin gallery. Initially, i’ve created a facebook event for discussion on the plans for my birthday celebration and it wasn’t really successful as we are unable to finalize anything or come to a conclusion, so in the end, i totally gave up and decided that we should decide on what to eat/where to go on that day itself. cos was abit sianz liao.

BUT!!! My BBFs actually planned something for me, and it was meant to be a surprise, so how can they say it on the facebook event page right?

So… without knowing where i’ll be heading to, i just followed them and they brought me to this little cafe along circular road…

Met up with my bbfs for late lunch at the ABC market in bukit merah, famous for the wide variety of yummy food they have. Ordered the Chicken cutlet which taste average but loved the large portion they are offering for the price we are paying, $5 only 🙂

*sorry no pics again as i’m HUNGRY! *

After our late lunch, we headed over to Queensway Shopping mall as miss bai wanna get herself a nice travel bag for our upcoming taiwan trip, before we proceed over to anchorpoint to chill at the hong kong cafe and a mini shopping spree at the Cotton On outlet store! Bought a pair of sunglasses, a shirt and a nice tote bag for a price of $22 ONLY! MAD CHEAP right?!

*i know, i know, i’m sheng qian wang~~ HAHA~!*

Went over to IKEA to kill time while waiting for rachel to end her exams and we went snapping ard in IKEA ~ 😀

SCAPE*, the newly opened shopping mall behind cineleisure, with one of the main attraction which is the shop by show luo, STAGE. Great, another new

Wee~! its been one of my wishlist to visit the universal studios in singapore, but the entrance fee is kinda expensive and we are not prepared to spend that amount of money for it yet. BUT!! if you would like to take a sneak peak of how great the universal studios is, you can actually go for the Hollywood After Hours whereby the entrance fee is only $2~! cheap right?

So, on a saturday evening, with a extremely good weather, we decided to go for this

The second day of our chalet. We actually managed to wake up at 9am in the morning despite sleeping at 3am the night before after our supper session. Guess why we are up so early? though we should be sleeping slightly longer…

as we are going SWENSEN for BREAKFAST!!

the nearest swensen we can think of from downtown east would be the one located at the airport, so we started our sunny day outing 🙂

Finally we've complete our mission for our 2 birthday gals, which is the surprise chalet we've prepared for them, we've somehow used up all

Continue from my previous post on the preparation phase…

After our quick Dunch ( dinner + lunch = Dunch 😛 ), we went back to our chalet and prepare ourselves for the party tonight! Retro Vintage was our theme for the night, so everyone needa dress up accordingly! though no penalty for not doing so, but come on’ we are all very sporty one ok! like that then FUN ma~ 😀

and here’s my look for the night! ( as u can see from the pics above and below… )

a few weeks ago, we’ve been busy preparing for our 2 birthday gals, Diana & Peiwen birthday surprise party!We’ve decided on booking a chalet for them but not going to tell them beforehand. We will be blindfolding them to the chalet and surprise them! haha. sound fun right?

So on friday 30th April, both me and jac took a half day leave, ( whereby mine was converted into a half day off instead 😛 tks to my boss! ) and brought all my barang barang to work in the morning. Damm HEAVY sia! dunno what i put also la. ( got hair dryer, all sorts of cables, plug, camera., hair straightener etc… )

Rachel was on a full day leave, so zhi wei went to pick her up before picking jac and me up at my workplace. Headed off to the chalet to check in and get ourselves ready for the preparation phase 🙂



this is a extremely overdue post. It all happened in early april and i only managed to post it one month later! LOL~

Went for steamboat session with my bbfs at the turf city and it’s my first time there. Quite alot of varieties of food to choose from but somehow i find some of the food not very fresh leh.. and heard from my friends that in the past, ice cream are free, but now u need to pay for the ice cream! NOT INCLUDED IN THE BUFFET ANYMORE!!! ARghh~~~ 🙁

Wee! finally managed to use my accumulated rewards point on my watsons card and redeem myself a hair dye. Was wondering on what colour

Finally after abt an hour ride down from genting, we reached KL and check into our hotel room.We’re staying at D’ Oriental Hotel located along then streets at chinatown.

2 single bed, combined into a Queen size bed, that’s what we usually would do when we travel 😀

the cabinet and tv, which is really small lor…

Toilet is pretty clean and there’s water heater too 😀

after washing up, we headed out for our night activities!

while waiting for food to arrive…………..

Wee! Finally, done with all the pictures and videos upload and im now ready to start updating my post! Are u ready for the tons of pics in this 3D2N Kuala Lumpur / Genting Trip with BBFs post?

It’s really great, able to travel around with a good bunch of friends, and we actually travel overseas once again in less than 3 months from our Jan visit to Bangkok, which was really fun and enjoyable as well! I was kinda surprised that we managed to gather everyone and almost all of us agreed with this trip within a short period of time. I think we all need a short getaway to free ourselves from our work and have something to look forward to!

Brought my luggage out for work in the morning as we do not intend to head back home after work. Bag was rather heavy which i dun know why, i didn’t bring much leh~

So i decided.. mmm i shall take a cab for work!~ 😀

I was having a hard time getting a cab and in the end, i needa call for a cab.. 🙁 but luckily it didn’t cost me as much as what i expect to reach my office…

Time passed kinda slow and we couldn’t wait to knock off from work! and one surprise from my mum, she actually came down to my work place and passed me some stuff to bring along for the trip after her work.. that’s really very nice and sweet of her la! MUACKS~!!!

Meet up with the rest at boon lay mrt station as wai meng wanna bring us for dinner at the infamous nasi lemak at boon lay shopping centre!

After like so many years, we are back to visit the museum again, this time not for projects but for the

“Quest for Immortality, The World of Ancient Egypt” exhibition…

Lunch with bbfs at the cathay orchard basement.. not much variety to choose from though and i’m looking for something cheap, which leads me to this set meal which consist of scallops and egg, with a cup of lemon tea for $5 only 🙂 *food taste so so only la.. but the scallops quite nice*

Steamboat Session with BBFs

Steamboat Session with BBFs

Steamboat Session with BBFs at my place last friday 😀 we had so much fun!

Early in the morning went out with my mum to look for plastic chairs as we realized that we do not have enough chairs to cater to all my bbfs! lol~ so we went to the punggol plaza trying our luck and to have our breakfast there as well. Luckily we managed to get the chairs and bought some minced meat as diana requested for the meatballs for steamboat 😀

Went back home, headed down to the hello shop at compass point to get my iPhone!! YEA~~ i’m offically a iPhone user now~!! WEE~~ and quickly rushed back home to prepare the food. Really 很累 leh~~ reached back home for awhile then head out to meet rachel and berlinda to buy the remaining stuff needed for the steamboat and back home to continue with the preparation again…

Would like to wish all of you out there a happy lunar new year. it’s the 4th day of chinese new year today and i guessed work resumes for most of you pple.. But, for me, work will resume on MONDAY instead! woolala~~ which explains why i’m blogging here right now! hahaa..

As what the title says, my all time favourite photo caption blog post title!  a random post to clear all those pics tat are stocking up.. 😀

Dinner at secret recipe before heading down for Yoga Live showcase on last friday.
Cheap and yummy nasi lemak from amoy street food centre.

Luckily no OT on last thursday as i’m heading over to YOGA LIN 林宥嘉 mini showcase at dragonfly!

Reached there around 7pm and there are people queuing up, waiting for admission. Went over to the reception area and look for the rest of the amblove aka ambcrew for my pass for entry. As it’s still early and nothing much that we needa help out at for the moment, we went for dinner first with sheryl, victor, daisy, mei mei and yiwen.

Secret Recipe for dinner and something real funny happened over there. it’s way too embarrassing la~ as victor told us that we needa go over to the counter to place our order, both me and sheryl took the menu over to the counter and was informed that they will come over to take our order..! SO PAISEH CAN! tsk~ and after all the laughing here and there, then i realized that it’s HAN’s that we needa order over at the counter.. TSK~~!! haha

After dinner, went back to the reception counter and the crowd started admitting into the venue.

Still remember on my post yesterday, asking you guys to give a guess on what is this?

Japanese Green Tea powder dispenser

the answer is …

Simply love the sunset. Shot taken from my window last sun at home.. it somehow calms my mind

Bascially this is going to be a photo post, i’m not going to say much here and let the pics do the talking 🙂 Went for our usual, every year must go chinese new year shopping spree at chinatown (woa.. damm long hor the name. lol!) and at the same time to drink my KOI bubble tea~!! ever since my office shifted to amoy street, it’s been quite some time since i last drank KOI le as there’s no more delivery services from ms Diana~~ 🙁

Ok, i think i’m talking too much here.. here comes the photos! 😀

Chinese New Year decorations along Chinatown

Ok, finally managed to squeeze out sometime to do a mini update.. I LOVED this post title.."Updates for the last week of Jan" as

Celebrated my mum’s birthday celebration last saturday. Was intending to bring her to try out the chatterbox’s chicken rice as she’ve heard about how nice the chicken rice is and was thinking of bringing her there to try out 🙂 (i’ve not eaten their chicken rice before btw.. haha :D), but in the end we settle down for dinner instead as she needa work OT on that day. So we went to our favourite restaurant, Sakura Family Restaurant!! 😀 It’s been really really long since we went for a meal as a family.. i’m really happy that night ;D

my mum and dad… look at her smile :D, she’s happy ~

and the dishes we ordered 😀 really nice!!

Celebrated my mum birthday in advanced with my aunties at the Vienna International Seafood and Teppanyaki Buffet restaurant, located at united square.

However i didn’t eat much for the buffet. Food was overall OK, but somehow i find the variety of food quite limited. they focus more on seafood, so if u’re one whom love to eat crabs, prawns, crayfish, lobster etc, this will definitely suits you!

The 佛跳墙 with abalone that was served to us when we arrived at the restaurant.

the long awaited post is finally here.. it was supposed to be ready like a few days ago but due to a few nights of OT and me falling sick, i’m giving priority to my work and rest, therefore unable to get this post up on time. but it’s better to be late than never right? Quality post need time to be ready one ok! haha 😀

31st December 2009 | Thursday | 5.15am

Woke up real early on thursday morning. took a cab from home to pick rachel and jac from pasir ris before heading over to the airport. 🙂 We’re early as zhiwei and the rest are not there yet. We checked in our luggage when zhi wei, diana and marc arrived. But, some unhappy incident happened at the counter whereby we needa pay extra more for our baggage as we’ve exceeded our initial baggage allowance. But, we managed to chill and cool down rather fast as we didn’t want to damper our holiday mood 😀

Initially we wanted to grab a bite after checking in, but looks like we’ve wasted too much time on the baggage, and we’re left with less than 15 mins before the gate closed! so… we needa rushed over to the gate !!

4th Dec marked the last day of our office at purvis street and we shifted over to amoy street on the 5th. I was kinda worried as i’ve never been to amoy street before, only heard of it.. but thanks to google maps, especially after they’ve launched the street map, i managed to go on a virtual tour and preview how my new working environment will be like, at the same time to find my way to the new office 😀

The famous and well know amoy street food centre with lots of yummy food.. heard that the lor mee, nasi lemak and fish soup there are so popular that pple come specially on saturday just to queue and eat as there will be more seats available…

好不容易得来的长假,大家怎么过啊?是懒在家里睡到不知是白天或夜晚,像只死猪一样, 还是活动排得满满,玩得不亦乐乎呢? 我呢,在国庆日当天到我阿姨家庆祝。我们准备了零食以及饮料,边观看国庆庆典,边享受。。 感觉不错哦:D 虽然已过了一天,我还是要在这祝新加坡,44岁生日快乐!而且,当天有好多人都身穿红衣耶~ 还有,你们有没有参与一同念信约啊?哈哈~~我有哦~! 今天呢,起得还算早,和我妈到了麦当劳吃早餐!哈哈。。。 还就没吃麦当劳的早餐了!吃饱后,心情特好:D 之后,下午出席了部落Y格斗的颁奖聚会,而我竟然把时间搞错了,所以迟到了半个小时。 没拍到什么照片,除了这张,意思意思。。。 和旧同事叙旧了一番后,活动结束,就回家了。。。 和我妈约了在compass point 会面,在一块去吃午餐。。。 看起来很好吃似的,但是并没有。。 面太粘稠了,非常没有弹性。不过鸡肉还算不错啦。。 我妈同样也点了另一摊的鸡排面,比我的好吃太多了!而且还比我的便宜~!!! 吃完午餐,到处逛逛,也就这样花了不少钱。。 买了个电风扇,因为现在有促销,原价要$60,但现在只需付$25,是不是很便宜阿?之后还到了海马店(不是卖海马,而是海马牌的枕头,床褥,沙发等等的啦)买了个枕头,原价要$89, 而我只付了$40! 今晚终于能够好好的睡个好觉了! 还有到了WATSON买了洗面乳,用了之后还挺不错的,感觉很棒! 就这样。。。 度过了我的long weekends :D 那你们呢?

刚过的周末,和我阿姨到了vivocity走走,因为esprit有sales, 而我也持有esprit的会员卡,在生日的月份去购物的话,还能够享有而外的20%折扣!那么好的好康,怎能错过呢? 不够,话说回来, 知道选购完毕,正准备要付钱的时候,才发现,原来8月份的国庆折扣,是无法让在本月份生日的会员们享有20%折扣的,而是只有10%。。。 让我顿时觉得被骗的感觉。。。 是你们没有在看板上标上任何附带条件嘛。。。确实有点气到~!:| 不过之后的晚餐,确实让我气消了许多。。。 因为晚餐太棒了!!! :D 金加利香港茶餐厅!排队排好长哦!不过,值得啦~!:D 柠檬茶,鸳鸯 杯子汤 扬州炒饭 鳗鱼石头饭, 类似砂锅饭,不过味道很棒! 培根起司马铃薯据烤,很好吃~!!!! 咖哩猪排石头饭。。。我喜欢!咖哩味很浓郁,融入在饭里,好香,好好吃哦! 鸳鸯据烤饭,一边是鸡翅,另一边是番茄,吃起来,味道挺不错的:D 建议大家不妨去吃吃看,相信你们因该会满意:D

第20届台湾金曲奖在周六圆满落幕,你对这届的得奖名单有什么看法呢?老实说,自从S.H.E没有入围金曲奖之后,就没什么追看以及留意于金曲奖有关的消息了。今年的金曲奖可说是星光暗淡,不过,还好看到了一些比较熟悉的歌手如燕姿,宥嘉,小猪的出现。可是,我还是没有守在电视机前观看, 反而约了好友出去玩!哈哈哈~

以下是今年第20届台湾金曲奖的得奖名单

Went for a yummy crab feast at Melben Seafood in ang mo kio for dinner last night, to celebrate my aunt’s advanced birthday 😀

As from what we know, the place is always crowded and the waiting time is always taking hours. Therefore, we decided to head there early. We reached there at ard 5.30pm and there was a few customers there already. Luckily, we managed to get our table in less than 15 mins time, whereby the average waiting time is ard 30 mins or more…

Waited for almost an hour before our dishes came… that’s long huh? but it’s considered normal over there as it can be more than 1 and a half hour during its peak period…

天啊。。。 最近的天气是想怎样?是要热死人吗?
就连待在家里的我,也会无时无刻的汗流浃背。。。

那我们该如何才能让自己更加清凉点呢?
方法其实有很多。

你并不需要一直呆在冷气房里来消除炎热, 把家里的窗户打开来,透透风,让空气流通.

夏天最好吃些清淡,容易消化的东西。多吃一些有助于消暑的蔬菜,如黄瓜,芹菜等(虽然本身很讨厌吃芹菜)。如果你是不喜爱吃蔬菜的话,也可以多吃些水果, 如西瓜, 梨, 香蕉等。 如果想要和冷饮的话,可以选择绿茶,因为了绿茶有很好的解渴功效。

夏天最好也不要在烈日当空之下运动。如果要运动,可以选择在傍晚或者清晨。选择一些如水上的运动应该会不错。
但记得要多喝水来补充一天所流失的水分.

夏天的炎热关键还是需要心境自然凉。保持乐观的心态来对抗夏天的炎热是最好的方法!

最后我们来听听一些与夏天有关的歌吧!

A very random steamboat session suggested by mr marc on sat as his parents are not in town. 😀
Met up with diana, rachel and jac at bugis as i’m intending to get myself a new backpack, but sad to say, i went back empty-handed. 🙁

Took a cab down from bugis to sheng shiong at marc’s place for steamboat ingredients shopping 😉 Not forgetting photo-taking session while doing our shopping there 😀

想要炒出一盘香喷喷,粒粒粘满了蛋浆的蛋炒饭并不困难。蛋炒饭最重要的是米饭必须粒粒分明,这样吃起来才好吃。现在就为大家介绍所需的材料。 炒饭怎么能够少了白饭呢? 江鱼仔,鸡蛋以及辣椒虾米。 首先,把蛋打散。 当锅里的油热了之后,把虾米放进锅里爆香。 之后,把白饭加入,快炒。 在锅的中央,开个小洞,把蛋浆倒入。 把饭和蛋浆炒至均匀,记得要不停的翻炒,这样饭才不回焦掉,饭粒才能够均匀的粘满蛋浆。 最后,加入江鱼仔,炒至均匀。 好啦!可以上桌了! 一盘香喷喷的蛋炒饭大功告成!大家不妨试试看:D

Wooo`!!!!!!!!!! The Great Singapore Sales that everyone is looking forward is here! and it’s calling me and my frenz to start our shopping spree now to catch all the discounts and great bargains during this economy crisis that we’re all facing… But, looks like it’s not going to affect us as the crowd in town was horrible~! but… i like it ! that’s how it should be during this GSS period 😉

Photobucket
Tee-shirt, Shorts, Comfortable Shoes, A sling bag, A cap, Water, All sorts of cards, Cash, ok all checked and i’m ready to go !

Just in case if you’re curious of why is there a need for the above-mentioned items, i shall give you a much detail descriptions of the reasons below :

Tee-Shirt : Wear comfortable and preferably cotton tees as the weather is hot and u’re bound to sweat a lot.

Shorts : Wear shorts instead of jeans as, again, the weather is extremely hot and it’s more convenient for you while trying out clothings.

Comforable Shoes : Wear comfortable shoes as you’ll need to spend most of your time walking ard.

Sling Bag : Carry a small bag and preferably a sling bag so that you can move ard easily, no big big bag as you’ll find urself having difficulties moving through the crowds, and also reduce risk of getting pick-pocket.

Cap : For me, it’s to prevent my hair from getting messy after trying on clothings 🙂

Water : You’ll definitely need this. sometimes it can cost quite alot if you were to buy a bottle of mineral water in town area.

Cards : Yup, get ready your credit card, debit card, privilege card, membership card, watever la. as it’s rather useful as you might be getting extra more discounts with them 😉

Cash : For payment like food, drinks etc… and for items less than $10

Ok, if you’ve gotten the above-mentioned items, i supposed you’re ready to start your shopping spree too~!

Something to add on from my previous post. here are some of the gifts from my colleague. Thank you so much ! I simply LOVE
