Wowwwwww I am so FREE todayyyy!!!

It has been a while since I had this feeling. Laze around at home and just laze laze and laze around~ I cannot say that I'm doing nothing because I'm writing on my personal statement, on and off, blah. What to write what to write. So many things are yet to be done for the Uni applications and I must remind myself, THERE IS NO SHORTAGE OF TIME, JUST A CONFUSION OF PRIORITIES read it out x 10. And oh look what am I doing now. Clearing up the place a little and this little space is really quiet in the afternoon where everyone is off to their working desk, which to be honest I have never experienced before since we started staying here.

Since the weather is quite pleasant, cloudy and I must avoid unnecessary sun-rays, I'm thinking of walking over to J8 and buy Koi along the way to sip and chew on their glam little bubbles, (yum yum) while I shop in Diva. Have I mentioned that they are having $7 sales on now!! Last year in Melbourne it's $5 sales and due to the currency exchange, it's $7 here! not too bad I must say! What I still don't understand is the price of Cotton On in Aus and Singapore is the same. Let's say $29.90 AUD is also $29.90 SGD. Makes no sense but who cares, we are the one who is game! :)

Both Jia and I has started major shopping (individually) for CNY. And we will be back in Penang in approximately 30 days time for CNY celebration. Very fast, too fast in fact. The best part about CNY is when all our loved ones are gathered to catch up on each other, other than that, the questions of "how well you scored in your exam? (which happened when we were in Primary and Secondary school, but currently it's more on - ), Where are you working at? How much are you earning? have you got a boyfriend? when are you getting married? ta-ta-ta-talking bout, blah blah blah.. which at times can be annoying when the line is crossed. No doubt people are just being concerned, or yeah maybe they are just concerned, but when the questions are answered, people tend to judge, judge and judge. Oh well, all I can say is that's just human nature, and what we can do is just take those as advice and grow from it. I still love them no matter what ;)

Currently listening to:

The First :)


All because of "River flows in You" 


Yiruma again.

Wonder why I have so much of a CD collections now??? :P

Last day of year 2010 tomorrow.
It's time for a little celebration to usher in the new 2011!!
Have a great one everyone. xoxo

♥ Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year ♥

First comes Christmas, my favourite festive event of the year, and before we get to soak into the romantic and joyful atmosphere, here comes New Year right after Christmas Day, before red red Chinese New Year ambiance greet the city. It is rather over-whelming that 2010 is literally coming to an end. 3 days time hallelujah allejandro! The graph of 2010 was exhilaratingly steep, high and low, which reminds me the Yin & Yang rule that governs the world we live in. Lots that I have learnt in this year, academically and also in personal growth. Afterall I am hitting the two three next year, time to grow up and think wisely for whatever choice I make.

Busy week or in fact, month ahead.
Lots of errands to run and no more procrastination woman!

'There is no shortage of time, only a confusion of priorities', 
I must always keep that in mind!

Now let me share with you a few snap shots of Christmas decoration I managed to capture in the city:

Christmas decoration?? or CNY??

Have I mentioned how I'm loving MOS burger??
The reasonably priced healthy bites which is sufficient for a meal. yumm :)

And one of my favourite high tea spots would be tcc - the coffee connoisseur.

Year 2010 has been a great one. 
May 2011 which is in 3 days time be as splendid or even better ♥

Best wishes everyone, before that, let me leave you with this:


quoted from one of the books (as though I'm reading many books blah. I'm still looking for The Answers by John Assaraf and Murray Smith that I read halfway and couldn't renew due to me being one day late okay enough of this crap but still imma look for the book in Kinokunya this weekend if possible!) that I'm currently reading during MRT rides, THE RULES OF LIFE by Richard Templar.

So lesson of the quote:

Despite the fact that I'm really enjoying every moment now.
Feeling blessed for everything. Thank you! :)

Spreading the L♥VE!

Just finished watching Romeo and Juliet. I must say, having Leonardo Dicaprio and all speaking in William Shakespear proper old english with the thou I thee shall crap in a modern set is quite funny.

But still a very sad love story, or maybe they find peace in heaven?? :) Love the soundtrack.

Had lunch at WATAMI.
Ordered a set for 2. More than enough for the 3 big mouths!

Wait! There's more coming!


The sister is very much in love with SEPHORA, ION.
That will be a listed-must-hang-out-place in Orchard.

I know you are very happy! :P

Random Christmas events along Orchard road. Celebrating the birth of Christ.

"So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
Ans so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young.."

Garlic- and-Onion-Themed-Brunch!

Home alone.
And my first attempt to cook.

I was too lazy to leave my secure little space to get food so I started searching for ingredients left for me to cook a decent meal. Chopping garlics and onions is always my favourite part in cooking, turned on the flame and starting sizzling the garlic to golden brown and then the onions and mushrooms, off the vermicelli goes plus a pinch of flavourings,

Nothing can go wrong when there is cheese and I was searching high and low for some green stuff to sprinkle on it and I found seaweed!

Never did I realize everything in the kitchen is Japanese themed,
it's because Jia is the one who does groceries shopping :P

*munch munch slurp! :)
