爱你 leh!!

Me: Dear!!  我爱你 leh!! *sparkle in the eyes*

Hubby: (wary) 然后 leh?

Me: 可以帮我拿 laptop 进房间吗? Heez!

Hubby: (=.=)””” Okok

Me: 谢谢 Dear!!

Hubby: Dear!! 我更爱你 leh!! 你可以自己拿吗?

Me: Hahahaha!

.

Just sharing some funny stuff. Of course please dont be mistaken that I always ask hubby help me do this and that ok. I’m merely shag out today with all the housework, bathing Vickki cum ironing his shirts. Naturally we always help each other when one party is shag out. =)

Oh…one good tip to share for great relationships:

.

Always say please and thank you! 可以。。。吗? And 谢谢, no matter howwww tiny the favor might be. It’s to show your appreciation and of course respect. =D

.

Till now, I always thank him for washing the dishes(occasionally) or hanging the clothes(daily), and he always thank me when I cook for him, even if it’s maggie mee….or iron his clothes etc….or rather…we thank each other for almost everything la.

Do not underestimate the power of P’s and Q’s. =D

Ending the super short entry with a cute pic of Vickki. She’ll always pester me to carry her or let her sleep on my lap on her first day of bath. And she can stay there all day until I have cramps. Love her lots. =D

.

Reminiscence of dearie’s proposal & our 1st Tokyo trip!

Currently watching 鱼跃在花见 on Funshion. Aiyo, I almost cough blood. Myolie is really irritating in the show, as in, her role. I definitely dont mean she’s irritating on a personal level. She always struck me as a very smart and humble lady. =)

The show is really a gastronomic adventure for Japanese cuisine lovers like me. Especially sashimi…..slurps! A gentle warning though, dont watch it with an empty stomach. It’s funny actually. Our Japan trip is finally confirmed on 7th-11th April and this show serves as a wonderful “appetizer”. I’m so looking forward to the trip. Will probably meet up with L in Tokyo if nothing goes wrong and I’m excited about her showing me all the shopping paradise and splendid Japanese sashimi!

To reminisce our previous Japan trip(half work/play, MDRT experience), below is an entry(not in full) copied from my previous blog. It served as a very sweet memory because dearie proposed during our 1st Japan trip. =)  Thus making this 2nd trip all the more meaningful now that we’re back re-visiting after 2 years of marriage. =) Oh it’s even the same season too, around APRIL with the sakura blossoms. Hope we can catch them though. Notice any difference in us? Definitely a difference in dearie. He gained more weight and looked more handsomeeeeee now huh. Haha. I definitely aged. =(  However, the pictures simply stirred my heart warmly. =D

Konichiwa Japan

Hi Guys Im back!

I had mixed feelings yesterday when I reached Narita Airport for departure back home. I mean, it feels good to be back home where I can UNDERSTAND what people are talking and not looking like an idiot when 1 Jap after another mumbled a long string of Japanese to me without me understanding a single syllabus. On the other hand, it means the end of my holiday, unable to shop anymore, and back to the hard, cruel, realistic Singapore, where the lousiest customer service exists.

We flew by Northwest Airlines, flight at 6am on 10th April. Few hours before we left home, we were still packing our suitcases. Haha. Reached Changi Airport at 3.20am(as usual, dearie is very prudent) where we had..supper? Then we proceeded to check in at 4am. Northwest serves nice cabin meals, if you want to know, service pretty good also. Online booking flights within 24hrs can be done but make sure name is keyed correctly. They charged a US$10 for edit of wrong name on e-tickets.

Snoozed in the plane of course. When I woke up, dearie was nowhere to be seen. Before I even have the foggiest idea on what was happening, the crew announced, “Here is a special message dedicated to Fion….”

(-_-)”’

There came dearie’s singing…

明天我要嫁给你了
明天我要嫁给你了
要不是每天的交通都
烦扰着我所有的梦
明天我要嫁给你了
明天我要嫁给你了
要不是你问我
要不是你劝我
要不是适当的时候
你让我心动

“Dear ah! 我愿意用我的一生去爱你,去保护你,去照顾你,你原意嫁给我吗”

**********Applauses************

*blushed*

Finally he came towards me and grabbed the ring box on my food tray(geez I so disoriented that I didnt even realize it’s there) and proposed again after opening the ring box right there with the whole plane passengers looking on!

:

:

:

What else can I say but yes? Keke *blush blush*

********Applauses again********

Im very very surprised! Even though I expected a proposal coming in Japan but I never expected in this way! Again, he never fail to give me surprises. He reckoned I would never have expected it’s in the plane before we even reach Japan. Many colleagues congratulated me as well as acquaintances from my company taking the same place. So nice of them.

There was this male colleague, who offered a handshake after congratulating me, added, “Congrats! You’re not left on the shelf. Haha”

I couldnt quite get his joke as I feel getting married at age 25 is considered early already. For the past me, I will never get committed at this age. Hello! This is Singapore, not India lo. I must have looked damn perplexed. But I guess it’s considered pretty normal for me bah for mean remarks to come now and then because Im mean to people I dont like now and then too. Lol. Lalala. Who cares, so long so Im happy with the one I love. =)

(P/S Hmm….this goes to prove I’m really one who forgives and forget, because 2 years down the road now in 2011, I really cant recall who is this colleague! Haha. =)

Oh ya. For this trip, I dont know why many of the pictures turned out blurry even though they looked okay in the camera. =( So many cant post up. Anyway, cant post too much otherwise will take very long to load.

:


Reached Narita Airport in Tokyo at around 1+pm, app. 6 hours flight.

Upon reaching, I realised I forgotten to put in my memory card in my camera. How dumb can I get? Must be because I wanna delete off pictures in the card to have more memory and I left it in my laptop by mistake. I was so so sad. I deleted all pictures in my internal memory in order to take more pictures but the max they can store is around 10+. =( Many colleagues offered their SD cards but they’re all not compatible. Damn Sony for being so exclusive. Finally, after searching all his various memory cards, Larry came up with one 1GB SOny Memory stick! I was so grateful that I can kiss him on both cheeks!

:

 


Toyoko-Inn at Chiba. The room is small, but cosy and impossibly clean.

:

 


Quite the smallest toilet I’ve ever seen in hotels, however, still pretty equipped

.

As you would have known, accommodation is super expensive in Japan. Our room costs app. S$177 per day, shared by me and dearie. So for 5 days, its S$885 for both of us. Actually on day 4, we shifted to Toyoko-Inn at Shinjuku, still the same hotel but different branch so it looks totally the same. The only draw back would be the tv channels I reckon. They’re showing the same shows everyday! At least for the 5 days that we are there. Since we dont understand Jap shows, its “Ocean Thirteen” and “No Reservations” everyyyydayyyy. Thank god I like Catherine Zeta-Jones in “No Reservations”.

Day 1
By the time we settled down everything, dinner all that, cum traveling via walk+train, its around 7+pm when we reached Disney Sea. Traveling took alot of time. We didnt take cab because their cab fares have killer rates. Its around few hundred S$ for a journey of around 30minutes.

.

 


So cute. The train to Disney Sea was damm cute with mickey-mouse-shaped handles and windows.

.

 


Dearie and Larry acting cute.

.

Admission ticket costed S$44(3100yen). By the way, S$1=70yen. Good thing was that although the admission ticket was expensive, all the rides inside were free for you to take, so there’s no extra hidden costs.

.

.

 

.

Its Spring carnival and Disney Sea’s 25th Anniversary Eve! And they had celebrations with fireworks.

.

.

.

This view was totally enchanting. It’s as good or else better than what the camera captured.

.

Does this reminds you of Shakespeare’s Merchant In Venice or Midsummer Night’s Dream? It’s so Venetian style and romantic. Dearie and me took the Vienna Gondolas boat ride in the quay. Did I mentioned its raining at that time? Haha

.


Lovely splendor inside the gift shops

.


Their so-called House of Terror.

Dearie and me can never forget this. Eil, WJ and Larry enthusiastically encouraged us to go play it. “Its very very fun!” They echoed together.

We strolled in, to find a Japanese girl giving a story telling session beside a small statue which looked like those native african statues, hinting of mysterious power and magic. As we dont understand Jap, I can only guess the haunted story is about this statue which possessed evil power which subsequently lead to the death of somebody via accident in a elevator, as depicted by the outside of the haunted building.

After that ended, we went through a door where there’s another session of story-telling, which again we dont understand a single word. After which, we were being leaded up a staircase and told to take one of the seats in one which looked like a small theater. I thought its another story telling session again..before uneasiness crept into me when I saw seatbelts attached to the seats.

WHY MUST NEED SEAT BELTS???!!!

I was feeling very very eerie and suspicious already and felt like leaving the mini “theater” no matter how dearie might laugh at me for being such a chicken. But, he said, just wait and see. Okie. After the jap girl mumbled something; “&^$@#$%^&*$%^&, SAYONARA!”, suddenly a door jammed shut, closing the entire “mini theater”!!! Lights went off and it was so dark that I cant even see my fingers!!

Siao liao this time. I thought to myself. Okie nvm…then a small 3D screen appeared infront of us, just like a theater, albeit, the laser images projected were so 3D that they looked so real. Heng ah…so there’s another show being shown right here, just that its secluded and closed up, I thought. It showed a man being somehow cursed by the statue and disappeared. The statue disappeared shortly after too after its spine-chilling laughter.

Suddenly, the whole “mini theater” began to vibrate!! And it began to move violently!! Dearie still trying to console the frantic me, “Dont scared dont scared”. Then it began to descend slowly…before it shot up in lightning speed to the highest level of the building where we can clearly see the skies and outside! It stayed stagnant for 1 second before it plunged without a warning and hanged in mid air. Hovering for that 1 deadly second again, until it finally plunged full force downwards right to the ground!!

I tell you, I think dearie screamed even louder than me. =.=”” Or rather, we both screamed as if there’s no tomorrow. And its very embarrassing. Lol. Finally the door opened…and we staggered out on legs which felt like jelly.

We OLD already!! Cant take this kinda shock one!!

Day 2
We woke up early and departed to Makuhari Messe to register for our MDRT experience convention. Then, we went Meiji Shrine temple. Its very special such that we have to walk a very very very long way inside by foot then we can reach the temple. Its totally unaccessible by cars nor bicycles. I guessed it showed the sincerity. Unlike chinese Buddhist temples, there were no statue inside. Jap gods, I think there’s only some sort of amulet. It was fully blocked out to the common public and we were made to pray in like, 30m away. The whole group of us exited by the wrong exit and made a large detour back. My legs almost broke. We had dinner hurriedly and walked another few miles to shop a while at Harajuku, where burberry shop already closed. So disappointed.

Day 3
Seminar started as early as 9am. Ended around 5pm.

.

.

.

After which, Larry, dearie and me left separately for Ueno Park while the others went shopping at the cheap electronics first before they joined us later. We dont have any electronics to buy so we skipped that. We didnt regret. We have extra 1 and half hours to catch some nice pics at Tokyo Ueno-onshi-koen Park where there were still some full-blown sakura trees! We thought we’re unable to catch it since its already mid april.

.

.

.

.

This is not cherry blossoms(I think), but I love them more! I think they’re prettier. Currently checking on their identity. Looks like peony though.

After the others arrived, we shopped 1 and half hours more at Ueno Hirokoji, where we bought lotsa foodstuff. Most are guys’ stuff actually.

At night, we went and attended the special dinner which company arranged for us. The food was scarce and so-so but got free flow beer and sakae. The crowd went crazy. Stupid david borrowed my camera to take videos.

They kept force Andy and Gerrard to drink until they buay tahan. Lol. We had so much fun.

.


Andy and Gerrard so seh. Lol

Day 4
Seminar again. Then We shifted to Toyoko-Inn at Shinjuku and did shopping there. That’s where I bought our burberry blue labels and some clothes.

.


My Burberry buys

Day 5
Went Asakusa Kannon Temple at Asakusa, Lei Men. And shopped at Nakamise Shopping street where alot of traditional foodstuff were sold. After that, we went Ginza, shibuya, 109 building for more shopping. The shops closed as early at 8pm. What the fish manz.

.

.

Day 6
Around 4 hours to shop only as we’re preparing to depart already. Walked around in Shinjuku, lovely shopping there where I bought my best buys. Some went back to Ginza to buy somemore Burberry’s blue label. Haha.

In Japan, everything is so expensive. Things were at least doubly expensive, or else triple or even 10times more.

Clothings cost approximately around S$70 or more. That’s the normal pricing. For slightly better clothes, they can easily reach 10,000yen or more, meaning $140+. Honeydew costs around S$50 each, and watermelons S$70 each. Crazy! The cheapest meal of udon, via ticketing using vending machines and then redeeming it at the counter, will costs around 400yen which is around S$5.70. For slightly better meals, they will cost around S$14. Presentable foodstuff usually costs 800yen, 1000yen or more, which are more and S$10+. Their transportation single trip train tickets costs around S$4+ per trip on the average. Their Daiso stores sell good quality economic stuff, each costs S$1.50

Okie so what are cheaper there?

1) Burberry blue label
Only exclusive there, and cheaper than normal Burberry label.
2) Fake Eyelashes
3) Diamantes
4) Fancl

THAT’S ALLLLLLLLL!!!!!!

*Skipped pictures of my shopping*

**************************************************************************************

Awwwwww~ Cant wait to relive all of these!! =D

 

Happy 2011 Valentines!

Happy 2011 Valentines Everyone!! =D

13th Feb 2011

I was wrong in guessing the hotel which dearie booked. It wasnt Intercontinetal or Park Regis, but Fullerton, the hotel which we celebrated our 1st 2 Valentines. =) It came as a warm surprise, although highly anticipated when dearie drove towards One Fullerton. Very suspicious. =P Actually women’s 6th sense is very accurate. So dont try to challenge it. =P

It was a sweet reminiscence as I recalled our 1st Valentines. We were still such a fresh couple of merely a month old. All those fluttery, butterflies-in-stomach feelings were so raw then. Looking at the present, our relationship has passed 4 years, married life of 2 years and this is our 5th Valentines. While the blushing moments were already over, the sweetness and endearments lingered. =) Perhaps it’s because we got married after merely 1.5years together, even married life seems like honeymoon. =D My only wish is I hope this will be forever; that there will never be boring moments in our love life. =)

:

:

:

:

:

:

I dont like oysters. =P That’s probably due to my 1st ever horrible experience. So dearie had my share.

:

:

:

:

Lovely display isnt it? Too bad they dont taste half as nice as they looked. =P And dearie agreed with me. Standard had dropped drastically and we both decided not to book Fullerton’s Vday package again. For the price, it’s really not worth a risk, although I have to say the last 2 Valentines were heavenly. =)

:

:

:

:

:

Hmmm………I had red roses for the 1st, 2nd and 4th Valentines, sunflowers for the 3rd, and this year, I had blue roses! Something new and they’re simply vibrantly gorgeous! Now, they’re sitting prettily in my vase on our coffee table and I must say blue roses seemed to wilt slower or rather, less obvious as red roses. Dearie is very cute…other than the roses, he gave me a a pretty formal piece of document, printed like a certificate which stated that he had transferred a lot(1000shares) of dont-know-what shares to my name. They had been bought at around 50cts and the price now is 70cts or more. It was also stated that I have the right to redeem them anytime but of course the value is subjected to the financial market. (=.=)””

In short, he’s like giving me a gift of some sort of small inheritance which is invested for long term for higher returns. Hmm….a pretty unique gift but I guess I’ll leave it in his hands. =) Hopefully it will grow though. Heez.

We checked out as late as 2pm the next afternoon, 14th Feb 2011. Fullerton’s breakfast is like any other normal continental breakfast but it’s standard has improved tremendously. Their breakfast was horrible in the past! After checking out, dearie accompanied me to KTV at Partyworld Clementi. Finally!! Finally he has some time to accompany me to KTV. =P It has been such a long time since I go KTV for singing. Somehow, I have very few friends who really sing, as in purposely going to KTV to sing. At most, we sang 1 or 2 songs while we drink at KTV pubs. Not that I’m a hardcore, die-hard KTV fan but it has really been ages since I last sang to my heart’s fill. =) Although I highly suspected I bore dearie to death. Muahahaha.

Happy Valentines Dearie!!! Love you always~

我猜! 我猜! 我猜猜猜!

WeeeeEEEEeee!!

Dearie: Pack up some stuff tonite. We wont be home tomorrow.

Me: Hippie!!!!

Wonder which hotel is it this time? Haha. =D

I’m betting on Intercontinental!! Since it’s his favorite, in terms of accessibility to his food and my shopping. Though again, he’s pretty satisfied with Park Regis the last time round so maybe he might book that. But hor, as he always want 新鲜感, he might try a new hotel which we never stay before!

So it’s still pretty hard to guess eh~

Okie I must get to sleep now. Smuacks and nite!

Advance Happy Valentines =D

On hearing that I love the movies screened on SCV channels 866, 867 and 868, dearest hubby subscribed them for me!!! It really came as quiteeee a surprise for me because the usual him will always ask me to go ahead and do it myself because this busy man is a workaholic and I’m a very neglected wife. =P But as much as I love the movies(both new and celestial), I was hesitant about increasing the monthly burden of dearie. So…I was like…….procrastinating about it, because I thought it will be like another S$100 extra monthly. Therefore, imagine my surprise when dearie sms me this afternoon and said he had subscribed and I can watch them immediately!! So sweettttttttttttttttttttt!!! Smuacks!!!

Our basic channels consisting of some Taiwanese variety shows, GEO channels and some HK drama costs around S$70+ per month. And the extra 3 channels surprisingly cost another S$20 more only. So total around a hundred per month. I blame it all on the stupid Mediacorp! You guys have seen what kinda CRAP Taiwanese old folks shows they screened on Channel 8 right? And sorry to say, I simply have no interest in local productions other than the news.

Really loving the movies screened on the newly subscribed SCV channels!! That explains why I’m still up at this hour, 5am! =P

Valentines Day is coming soon! And I almost didnt know it until dearest hubby insisted on meeting me on sunday(Vday eve) even when I told him I’m meeting Lin, Jes, and Jas. Opps! He almost never do that(except once) and especially not without giving reason. That’s when I realised it must be an important date. Had no choice but to say I cant make it. =( Initially the gathering date was set on Sat and we all said okie until Lin backed out because she’s meeting her bf. When we finally fixed on Sunday instead, then now I backed out. *stucked out tongue* OMG! Jas is okie with postponing to next week but Jes didnt reply. Hopefully she’s not angry with me. =( Dont worry though, I’ll definitely be there on her ROM in Mar!!

Wonder what did dearie plan…..he seldom plan for our events nowadays,, usually is me. So I’m pretty curious about it. Heez! But as usual, he asked me not to expect too much because I’m one with super high expectations. So he always tend to lower it abit so as not to disappointment me. Hahaha! I’m already very happy that he tried to plan something as he’s always busy with work. So no worries my dear~ =D

Happy Valentines Day in advance everyone! I hope everyone, no matter single or attached, will enjoy this lovely day with happiness and have a smooth-sailing family/love life always!!! =D

Reminiscence for 2010

Dearie is coming home now to accompany me. Which of course makes my day. =D Also, the medicine I just took also made me feel better. This might be a good time for me to pen some thoughts for reminiscence since year 2010 had again, passed in a flash.

To quote Elaine, “Resolutions anyone? But I have never been one to keep to my resolutions so I dun bother making them in the very first place.”

I was giggling while I read that statement because it reminded me of myself. Just that I never have the guts to admit it. I really admire her for how candid and natural she is. Before I read her blog(I dare not claim I know her despite we have emailed few times), I’ve never know such a humble, simple and down-to-earth beauty exists. =) I’ve learned from her to be more truthful to myself and not be weigh down by this invisible cloak call “pride”. Sometimes we see many people who looked much more fortunate than us, then sub-consciously we tried to mimic what they do, how they carry themselves etc, when actually it’s so much more comforting, fulfilling and meaningful to just be ourselves and the way we are. =)

Another lesson that I’ve learnt over the past year is never assume everyone knows how you think and understands your intention no matter how close you think you are to them. In conjunction to the mentioned point, do not hesitate to explain yourself further if there’s a tiny chance that people might misunderstand your intentions.

Dont ever think that, “Aiya, she should know I’m not this kinda person. We’ve known each other for years!”

No, dont ever assume that, unless it’s with your super super close friends. Hmm, to date, there’s only 3 friends whom I really dare to say what I really think(100% without holding back) to them. As I’m sure they know I’ve absolutely no evil intentions nor hidden meanings behind my words. Of course, other than the meaningful friendship, it got to do with their personality as well. =D For other good friends, I just dare not gamble. Not anymore. =X

Sigh, but I heard a kinda meaningful quote before, also from Elaine’s blog.

<blockquote> Dont bother to explain. Your besties dont need it and your enemies wont believe it.”</blockquote>

Sometimes, I’m not one who thinks too much before talking, in front of people whom I hold the dearest. Dont you wish for no pretense and hypocrisy infront of your closest? I dont see the need to phrase my sentences ever so carefully as if treading on thin ice or say patronizing things which I dont meant at all. Life is pretty hard already, why make it harder? I understand there’s a word call “tact”, I’ll keep that in mind. However, it’s my mistake to assume people can accept what I can accept, or nonchalant with things which I pretty much bo chup. There are some stuff which I can accept whilst other people cant. Similarly, there are things which other people can accept while I cant. We are all made differently afterall. So well, sometimes, it’s essential to understand different individuals’ limits; dont cross their line.

To quote Robert T. Kiyosaki,

Teach and You Shall Receive – Whenever you feel “short” or in “need” of something, give what you want first and it will come back in buckets. That is true for money, a smile, love, friendship … I just trust that the principle of reciprocity is true”.

I used to believe that was true. Hmm…….I believed in the natural goodness of everyone and there’s always reason behind how a person’s personality was molded.

For example, Ali might be egoistic because he was not loved by his parents since young and all his ego is a wall of pride to protect himself.

Actually egoistic is not so much of a big thing lah, because it doesnt cause any harm or distress to anyone. This is merely an example. Of course there are other flaws out there which are less…acceptable.

I will always give chances…or accommodates….to the extent that through years…I’m accustomed already. It became a habit and well, sometimes it’s difficult to try to reverse your situation when it has been like that for many many years. For example, if Guy A always drives Guy B home because Guy B dont drive(despite it’s not convenient at all) for years, it’s pretty hard to blurt out one fine day, “Erm…actually your house is not really on the way, nor is it near to mine. Do you mind to go home yourself?” Because Guy B has been so accustomed to you fetching him back and forth that he’ll probably be offended that you suddenly dont wish to ferry him.

This is merely an example, but you’ll get the gist of it.

It might be a tinnnny thing but when every tinnnnny thing gets repeated over and over again, through years and years, with no reciprocation, it can be very….well you know, disheartening. And we always wish to be reciprocated you see. Even if it’s once in a month, it’s also good! However, I grew tired of waiting to be reciprocated. I’m pretty sadistic in nature actually, sometimes I kept finding excuses for my treasured ones that even dearie find me pretty amazing. Lol. But well, it’s always a sucky feeling to wake up from a dream, an illusion. To slap yourself awake to the cold, hard, realistic truth, that you have always been the self-sacrificial one. Hmm….pretty much reminds you of some BGR problems isnt it? Yeah…kinda similar in some aspects. But well, cry all you want over it. Cry one night! It is more than enough for any person’s worth, after that, you’ll move on! =) Remember there’s many other people who deserves you more. =)

I’m still a softie at heart actually. Sometimes through time or a small gift, I’ll forget the whole thing happens. =)

Another 9 days, it will be 4 years pa-tor anniversary with dearie. Haha. Wow, we were both pretty amazed that it has been 4 years! It feels shorter. =) Pretty good, meaning still honeymoon period. Muahahaha. I think both of us has really changed in many ways.

:

:

Him

He treats me better now.

I shant elaborate how he used to treat me(it’s not thattttt bad la) in the past, it’s not my style. What matters is that, he treats me much much better now. I really appreciate how he cares more for my feelings and especially when I’m sick. His EQ also improved alot. He now knows how to say words of appreciation as well as more zi-dong where my mummy is concerned. 比较会做人了! Though, not the other kind of “做人” okie? Dont notti notii.

:

:

Me

I’m milder in temper now, I think, towards him. Lol. I think I used to be more hard-headed and high-prided. It’s not my habit to express how bad I feel in every aspect because I see that as being “soft” and “vulnerable”. So weird, my character is so much like a guy. But now, for example, when I’m sick, I’ll…whimper in a way and request for attention in a soft way. LOL. Not always though. It’s never like that in the past. I will only put up a black face and expect him to know that I feel bad and come comfort me without being asked! Which of course he dont lah! Guys are still very dense, just buy that. So end up, I’ll throw temper and demand why he cant be more caring when I need him most etc. Then we’ll end up quarreling.

Sometimes, 以柔制刚 是对的! Haha.

:

We’re still considering should we have a mini-celebration for our 4 years pa-tor anniversary, given our busy schedules. Hmm……….see how. =) Flying Pattaya on Sunday.

My dearie is so funny lah. Just now we saw some…..what huh…cherry blossoms huh…the kind of trees which people put up during Chinese New Year, and I wondered out loud;

Me: Oooo…..New year liao, what should we do with our Christmas tree?

Dearie: We put ang bao on the tree loh

Me: Oh! Good idea hor!

Dearie: Then moon cake festival, we put mini lanterns loh.

Me: Er…………

Dearie: Then 端午节, we hang mini bah-zhang lor.

Me: Wahahahaha

Dearie: The Christmas tree so poor thing, it must be thinking, “我明明是Christmas tree,为什么要乱乱挂bah-zhang 在我身上leh?

Me: Hahahahahaha!

:

Let us all embrace a better us in the new year and I love each and everyone of my friends and I thank all of you for loving me just the way I am. =D Smuacks Smuacks!! Please do treasure all your precious around you and let’s not take everyone for granted!

 

1st day of 2011!

Was supposed to meet up Gra and Ver for light drinks whom I haven seen for the longest time! Was it since my wedding? Wah!

It was a kinda impromtu meet and just after I said yes not long, dearie showed me a long longgggggggg face. He said lately I kept go out meet friends and mahjiong and havent been spending time with him. Especially when he’s working most of the time and dont have much free time too. He did say nevermind go ahead. But I thought aiya, since I also had quite alot of beer to drink the previous night, and the next day, Suan and Gra are also coming to my house to wine, I probably cant drink for straight 3 days. I will die!! So I called Gra and told her the whole story. I know they’re very understanding and we shall meet up soon again! Though, it’s reallyyyyyyyyy seldom that I put aeroplane. =P

Eventually went Orchard Watami to have dinner with dearie. His favorite is Watami and we queued more than 30minutes for a table. My stomach growled non-stop. =.=”” Thankfully, their food always maintained the standard. After the dinner, we rushed to Cine to watch movie. It’s always like that. Booked earlier slot, very rush. Booked too late, nothing to do. DUhz!

Movie title: The Ghosts must be crazy(鬼也笑)Ratings: 4.8/5

Comments: Watch it as a comedy and not as a horror will be better. Ultimately, I think 90% of the crowd watched it for laughs. It’s made up of 2 stories and sometimes I have to marvel at their way of directing(Mark Lee & Boris Boo). They’re actually very simple and common plots but they can make it so funny! No regrets for watching this show. Oh and of course, alot of hokkien as usual. This is actually much much better than the last Sg horror production, 吓到笑.

After the movie, we went Ballymoon for a short drink and snacks. It’s located at Orchard hotel, just opposite Harry’s bar near Orchard Tower. Has always love the deco and cushioned seats. Of course, the sexy and chio waitresses dont hurt. =) Seriously, they have the most gorgeous servers in Singapore. And they’re not the lian or PRC type okie? They’re fluent in English. Those in Hooters merely wore little but Ballymoon’s waitresses are mostly stunning! Okie, this will probably attract all the guys there. Haha.

It was a tad noisier than usual because of some boliao soccer fans. But usually, it’s pretty okie. The beers and wines are cheap. We usually had chardonnay priced at $11 each. Their fridays are martini’s night and they’re going at $10nett. Hmm….they’re having beer and wine promotions right now but I cant remember details. Actually I love their Snowball cocktail…but now they dont serve it anymore. Haiz…..why the things I like always disappear… Oh they served a variety of food too. I used to love their bacon-wrapped bratwurst, it was superb with their sauce. However please dont order their bratwurst sausage now! It sucks because they’re boiled without bacon! No garnish no nothing. And it costs like $12. Arrghhh! Their chicken wings were very nice too, albeit kinda spicy. But since their bratwurst has changed, I dont know whether their chicken wings are still the same. Sad leh. Dont know why nice dishes always change?! ChinaOne’s hot cheese fries were uber delicious too. But they changed it to cold cheese dip, like those normal Long John Silver. What a disappointment. Sigh.
