Sentosa

Yesterday was my first time going to Sentosa for beach volleyball after stopping for quite sometimes. I went with my Meta Camp Freshies (HADES 4). The weather was extremely bad in the morning because it’s raining heavily but it did not last very long. Initially, we wanted to take a tram to Siloso beach but the queue was super duper long (NUS orientation camp). So we take the tram to Palawan beach. On the way there, the rain started to get smaller and we took the train back to beach station. Oh yes, it’s kinda lame but it’s enjoyable. From beach station, we walked to Siloso beach.

The weather was damn freaking hot in the afternoon. Nevertheless, we continued with our volleyball. I rested quite a few times because it’s so shag to run on the sand under that kind of weather. Have to keep myself hydrated. In the evening, we had a short game with NTU students. It was a hilarious game because our side was so noisy and didn’t score. Their side was really quiet. After all, it’s still a pretty fun game.

We went to wash up at around 7pm and head to Vivocity for Carl’s Junior. One burger is too big for me to finish so I shared with the girls. 3 people share one burger. Surprisingly, it was quite filling with the chili cheese fries. Sat down there till they closed. I guess the staff were cursing us because they can’t knock off. After that, I went back home with Lynette because she stays near me. That’s about it! Goodnight (:

Happy 4th Anniversary

Time passes really fast. We have been together for 4 years already. 4 years may sound very long to a lot of people but not to me. Many a times, people say that the first few months of a relationship is always the honeymoon period and after that it no longer is. As for my relationship, I always feel that honeymoon period lasted throughout. You are the only one who can make me feel this way. You are my Special Someone. I appreciate what you have done for me throughout these years. You gave me whatever things I want, you brought me to places that I want to go, you dote on me, etc. Even though you were feeling extremely tired after coming back from camp, you still bother to meet me and send me back home. I know it’s not easy. And here, I would like to tell you that I love you a lot and I always do.

So how did we celebrate our anniversary? Actually, we didn’t do anything special because it’s kinda too late. By the time he reached home, it’s about 8 pm. So, we went for dinner at Waraku and dessert at Starbucks. I ended my day with a short and sweet nights out with my beloved Hubby.

Officially 21

On the 18th July 2010, I have officially turned 21 years old. Turning 21 means a lot of things. It means that I have to be more mature, my stress level increases, I am moving towards the thirties, I have to be more independent, etc. In fact, this is what everyone will go through. It’s just the matter of time. Of cause, being able to live in the world for 21 years is all my parents’ effort. Without them, I wouldn’t have been in the world and without them, I wouldn’t have been able to live in such a comfortable environment. So I would like to thank my parents a million times.

It’s a big day when human turned 21st, so how could I not celebrate it. My birthday celebration was held at Goldkist chalet and I had so much to complain about that chalet. That’s probably the worst chalet I had ever been to. So people, don’t ever book that chalet. Anyway, my whole birthday celebration was sponsored by my beloved daddy. The caterer that I ordered from was “Monte Kristo” and the dishes were pretty good. All thanks to Aunty Jas’s recommendation because I saved the time to source for good caterer.

Frankly speaking, I have got no experience in holding a birthday party so it’s pretty tiring for me. But with lao gong, my sisters, my cousins and my parents’ help, it’s pretty manageable. Thank you all (: It might not be a awesome place but it’s a awesome paw-some birthday celebration. Thank you everyone who came all the way down to celebrate my birthday. I really appreciate it.

FOREVER 21 (:

Meet Up

After one month, I met up with Jian Ying again on Thursday. Initially, we planned to meet up for dinner but just happened that she’s on leave that day so we met up at Orchard for lunch and shopping. We headed to Shokudo (Cineleisure) for lunch because I had a sudden craving for pasta. As usual, we ordered student special pasta but the varieties are getting lesser. If I am not wrong, I only saw 2 pasta with tomato cream base. They used to have 4 to 5 different type of tomato base pasta. We sat there for quite a while.

What’s next? Shopping!!!! We went to Heren and shopped in ALT for around 1 hour I think. Jy bought a lot of make up stuff because she wanna make over. Each time she shopped with me, she will end up spending a lot. I don’t know why either. Anyway, i bought 2 nail polish from that shop. Initially, I wanted to get O.P.I nail polish but it’s way to expensive. It’s selling at $23.90. On a second thought, I decided not to get that because there’s some where selling at a lower price. So, I got L.A Girls instead and I got a simmering ones. Simply love that color.

We shopped non-stop till I complained that my leg hurts. Can’t believe that I am shopping with my heals for so long. We settled down at 313 after buying my peeling mask from The Face Shop. Thanks Kitty for The Face Shop Member card because I got discount. Before discount, it was $21.90 and after discount price was $16.

After a drink, I went back to School to help up with some camp stuff but apparently, it’s almost completed when I reached there. Stayed there for a while and went back home.


Simple Dishes

After a long holiday, I have decided to pick up some cooking skills from my mum. My parents always say that it is rather important for girls to learn cooking some dishes because eating outside isn’t good. I do agree but I also agree that cooking is a little troublesome because there are a lot of dishes to wash as well as mopping the floor. That is what my mum always do. 妈咪,辛苦您了。

The dishes that my mum always cook for dinner ain’t that complicated after all. It’s simple and yet it taste really good. Anyway, she taught me how to cook soy sauce chicken, fried chicken and vege (don’t know what’s the name of the vege). I should state it down here just in case I forget.

My cousins are back from USA

After 3 years plus, they are back in Singapore again. There are going to stay here for 2 months and then back to USA again. I guess they won’t be coming back anymore because they have already grown up and probably busy with some other things already. When they came back, it was my first time after 3 years of interval that I visited my gong gong’s place. Ever since he past away, I have never gone there before because there isn’t any purpose visiting. The house remains the same but it’s kinda dirty because China women don’t clean up their house. In fact it’s not her house. There is no wireless down there so there’s totally nothing I could do over there. Maybe play cards with my cousins.

My cousin is 15 years old now and she can drive. I’m amazed because 15 years old is damn young but I guess it shouldn’t be a problem because their traffic there should be much better than Singapore. She asked me something when we were in a cab. Why did the car go left and right (overtaking)? She expected the taxi uncle to travel straight only because she never had a chance to overtake other people. There’s still more to learn ^^

I didn’t know that owning a car in USA is so cheap. They are only required to pay for the car which cost a few thousand and car insurance. If only it applies to Singapore. But it will never happen because it’s Singapore 😀

My Gigantic Bear

Finally, I got my gigantic bear. Lao gong bought it online a couple of weeks ago when I was still in Cambodia.

This bear is 1.4m tall which is almost the same height as me. Almost but not the same (: It weighs around 1kg. It’s damn soft and I hug it as a booster when I sleep. But if your bed is not big enough, the bear will probably occupy your whole bed. My bed isn’t bed enough so I left the bear in Lao gong’s house. It’s gonna occupy half of his bed. Ha ha. Please don’t kick him off your bed OK!  Else he is gonna punch you!
