Happy Chinese New Year 2009

Like what we always do for the past century, meetups with relatives and gossip, talk, share, gamble.  Its a good occasion for the lost bonds to rekindle and letting go of what had happened the past year, reflect and start planning for this rocky pavement of the upcoming year.  Like what Adeline had written in her blog, this year is gona be really tough for the OXes (yeah I was born in the year of OX) and looking at the prediction of the zodiacs’ life this year, tiger, dragon and dog are on the higher summit (my dad, mum and bro) respectively.  I really hope my family would continue to prosper in their business and ofcoz, stay healthy because without health, wealth is mere.

So I brought my mum and sis out last night to Loyang Tua Pek Gong (like what I did for the past few years).  We visit the temple on wee hours to avoid the unncessary crowd and thick smokes.  What had me amazed this year was that the temple had 6 real cows in the temple, as though it was some ritual but it was really saddening to see the animals get trapped in this small place and gets stared at.  There was 1 cow that looked so angry and helpless when I stared at her nonstop for 5minutes.  I was trying to mesmerise her, thats why. LOL.

With an addition of a family member, Biscuit (my dog), my family seems more bonded than the last time.  We had to leave the dog behind in the house because we don’t want to be tied to her when we’re having our family gathering.  Then, my dad always want to go home early instead of staying at our relative house too long unlike last time, when he could stay there until 1-2am.  Its definitely better now =)  I wanna thank biscuit so much for putting my family together again.  My sis, mum and dad now talks more and goes out more often as well.  For the past year, my family relationship has improved tremendously.

On my side, my true friends seem to have a very big gap with me.. it was accumulative effect; when there is a gap, it only gets bigger instead of smaller.  I was really busy with both my school and personal life.  I had to juggle between my poor academic results and my hall’s commitment for my school.  And for personal committments, I have a new family member (biscuit) that I have to be home some times to play with her and my beloved girlfriend, i’m attached.  But still, on the much brighter side, I have met more people in school, earn more friends and still stay happy like previously before army.  However, I still  really miss those slacking days.

So, if you haven’t start reflecting, start thinking on what you’ve really done to make yourself proud and what are your upcoming plans on the rocky paths this coming year and leave a comment here =).

Last but not least,

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR READERS!

Manage to get my hands to try on my cousin’s Sony A-350 DSLR and GuitarHero: Worldtour.  I kick ass, like totally.  Not actually, I only know how to play guitar and percussions with Medium difficulty.  Well, like what other tubers would say, Practice always makes perfect!

Her 20th birthday!

With the help of her mum, I brought her cake over(pre-ordered from bengawan solo, paid & collected by my lovely sister) and her mum helped me setup a small table to put the cake and the presents.  At the stroke of 12am (or maybe alittle later), her mum woked her up from her princess sleep and she was looking really messy!  Thank god she washed up abit after that so that she can be snapped through camera =x  She was really shocked and touched to see me =)

I left her house after having a slice of the cake and brought back 1/2 of the cake because they couldn’t finish it even if I would put there for days.  Then today, we meet up quite early, around 11am in Outram Park, had Hakka Yong  Tau Foo again for lunch, walked around Chinatown and realised that people are actually starting to shop for the Chinese New Year stuffs!  There’re pretty much bargains there now!

Then we went over to Kster (its her first time there la..)

Then we headed over to Nibbles (the one that xiaxue used to review), yeah I was curious about it for quite some time already despite trying it out at Benjy’s house on August.  The fishes here are definitely bigger than ben’s!  It was so ticklish initially!

15mins of Nibbling was really too fast.  Didn’t really feel much kick.  What I didn’t like about the shop is that the salesgirl seem to apply abit of pressure for us to sign up for the package instead of just leaving us alone.  I mean its common in ALL spas and salons.  They psycho you to get packages, then once u sign up for it, they leave you in the lurch just like other ‘idiots’.  Ofcourse I won’t sign this thing up in a hurry.  Im not even working, and Im not addicted to this kinda spa relaxation thing YET.  After being rejected by us several times, the salesgirl realised that she was just wasting her breath, then her attitude totally change, like 180degrees.  Damn it.  This world is too realistic la.  In this service world, they should see customer  needs what.. how can force us 1.. wah lao =/  Thank god in the article she recommended us to read I found some other cheaper place that provide this kind of service.  Maybe the ambience will suck and stink, but who cares!  At least they won’t pressure me to get some useless package.  Somemore there isn’t really alot of fish.

Anyway, after the nibbles, we went to PS and got my mum some photo frames and then we went back Tampines 139 to eat with my mum Steamboat fish (reminds me of the guppa ruppa, the nibbling fishes).

It was a good day well spent for her I hope =).

Baby, HAPPY 20th BIRTHDAY! Stay pretty and cheerful BUT be less dominant and stubborn! ILU! xoxo!

I hope you like the plans I’ve made for you today and last night!

A7X is performing!

Avenged SevenFold

Avenged SevenFold

Spent my whole day today walking around trying to get my hands on a pair of Superband Grand Finals because I can get to see BEYOND LIVE!  However, it was to no avail.  Thus I brought dear down to PS to watch her favourite band YiShiJie perform since she couldn’t support them LIVE.

And guess what!? I BOUGHT A PAIR OF TICKETS TO WATCH AVENGEDSEVENFOLD IN MAX PAVILION (nnb max pavilion again! this time Im gona stand RIGHT INFRONT OF THEM!)  I LOVE A7X.

Can’t wait for that day!

Singapore Fireworks Festival 2008 – Korea

It was a breath taking thrill.  I know, most people would not have paid to view fireworks especially on a much ‘random’ slot but I took the step 2 months ago to book the SingaporeFlyer on this day to watch with my dearest Pinky.  Im just trying to create some romantic ambience on this day.  I did watched yesterday with Clarence (My roommate in NTU) and ofcourse it wasn’t as exciting as watching with her.  Today’s display was from Korea and it was much beautiful than yesterday’s from France.

Anyway I wasn’t in time to watch the fireworks in the Flyer capsule, so I was recommended by the kind usher who told me that I would miss the fireworks if I continue to que for the flyer.  I drag miss pinky out and was that close in time to watch the fireworks!  If I hadn’t move out, I would have missed it.  And I panicked not being able to setup my tripod in time.  Gees, I took 30secs – 1min to setup my tall tripod so yeah, I did miss out snapping the front.  Pinky was excited and without the hassle of setting up a tripod, she took out her phone and started recording it as video.

So here’s some of the snaps of the fireworks and after the display, we went onto the capsule and watch the city at night with a group of old folks:

It was a breath taking experience on taking the Singapore Flyer but yet on another hand, I feel that the money is not well spent on this kinda thrills.  The flyer was slow enough and there’s really nothing to be afraid about even when I am so afraid of heights!  The night view was boring other than seeing the city lights, there’s nothing much for me to really feel excited about.  Pinky told me that the sea view from the flyer is great but I could only see reflections of the sky-scraping crane lights.  It was too dark anyway to see other things, thus I indulge her in snapping photos.

If I were to sit in the Flyer again, I would choose to sit in the evening and enjoy the sunset.  Watch the colourful horizon.

Truly Surprised birthday dinner

My dear was very sweet enough to organise a ‘surprise‘ birthday dinner for me with my fellow army friends at Billy Bombers in Marina Square and together with YiJia and Rouqin.  I’ve really enjoyed myself today even though it was a simple mass dinner.  I know pinky did put in quite an effort with Kelvin to organise this for me and Im really glad that the guys came for it =)

me and fellow army frens

me and 3da mei nu!

me and pinky

the lao jiaos. thru small things.

After dinner, went down to MohammadSultan to drink with Ernie, Joshua, Kelvin & Daryl.  Out of the blue, they treat me to 3jugs of Burbon Cokes, 3 jugs of Tiger, 1 glass of dunno what bomb, and 1 glass of thick chinese-medicine-alike’s legendary graveyard.  Fall into concussion immediately at 2.30am and woke up at 4am to go home.   Thank god I don’t lose my mind when I get drunk! LOL!
