to new york, china & japan...

dinner at manhattan's china square with aunt and SSD last night. she bought some fish n chips coupons from groupon for $6 each. original price was $13.90. worth much? but we added some sides so the total bill for 3 of us added up to almost $44. still ex lor!

... ...

then had to wake up early this morning in order to meet SSD at woodlands bedok. went to his cousin's place for 满月 lunch. thankfully we only sat for a short while, before both of us headed off to raffles place.

remember back then during my blog post about the pompeii exhibition, i mentioned why there isn't an ancient china exhibition. THEY HEARD ME!

(terracotta warriors @ wiki)

quite a huge crowd turned up and as the place was small, it was rather messy and squeezy. but i suppose i should have expected this from a popular exhibition.

it touched mainly on burial and life after death in ancient china, while i was more interested in the 'forbidden kingdom' part of it. there were quite a number of artifacts on display, though they didn't seem to capture my interest.

luckily, my main reason for going did not disappoint. (archeologists sounds like a fun job!)

this one i know! an archer!! =)

part of the making.

eyeopener much? i think the most amazing thing is, they have this notice outside the gallery for you to download this free ACM app. inside the exhibition, there were several pictures like these:

and when you view it through the app cam, it turns out like:

all can move one! so cool right? here's another one.

i have no idea how they do it, but just so cool lor. lols.

there was another exhibition outside; they never state what it was about though. i think it was more on sumatra / javanese tribes or something. there's also this area on buddhism, with some statues on display.

quite boring. hmmm. spent about an hour or so inside. overall experience was quite disappointing. but considering the price (normal admission is $8/pax, but passioncard holders pay $4/pax!), i suppose it's an okay way to pass time.

... ...

walked to suntec and around before deciding to try out the newly-opened sushi express at citylink mall. at $1.80/plate, it's slightly more expensive than suki's $1.19/plate. however, the ingredients used are definitely fresher and nicer than suki's.

for starters, the miso soup (also $1.80) came in a big bowl with not only tofu, but also salmon bits inside. tasted pretty different from the usual ones. i mainly gorged on their salmon sushi, salmon sashimi, and a must try, grilled salmon belly sushi. so so yummy! oh by the way, FOC free-flow hot green tea. definitely will drop by again if i'm in the area. :D

(damn now i'm hungry.)

been over a week since i last updated. let's see if i can remember what happened.


remember the pretty wall decals i painstakingly stuck up? part of it fell off during the night.

so sad la! so i peeled off the entire thing. thankfully the other kitty one remained intact. i wonder how long it'll last. hmmmm.

party came and went. mostly was in the room gaming watching teaching SSD to play maple. lols. food was so-so; no pics cos wasn't really interested. cooper came, and was one of the mini stars of the night!

yes he's on my bed. no it was unintentional. boo. and of cos, the birthday cake.

i think i watched c.l.i.f till 3 plus in the morning. and i heard the remaining of them drank till 5 plus in the morning. madness.


kungfu panda 2 is cute! i likes. and it's probably one of our shortest pak-tor sessions cos we just went out, watched the show, and came home. lols too tired!


dinner at AMK jacks place, again. dunno why we must celebrate our birthdays at jacks place. lols. nothing special really.


i had orientation at school in the morning, supposedly from 9am to 12pm. it ended around 10.45am instead. and for the 90mins, we just sat there listening to school's history and facilities and etc etc. boring! but better than playing stupid games.

then went town to shop for father's day gift. i hope he likes his liverpool jersey. =\ and then to ah ma's for dinner.


dinner at ah gong's. tired and bored.


first day of school! aren't you excited? =)

meows ~

it feels so good to be saying this: i am serving my notice period! :D

yes yes, i quit my job. no no, i haven't found another job. so why have i made myself jobless? because i cannot freaking stand that bitch anymore!! lols. just kidding. i'm not that 潇洒.

the fact is, i'm going back to school! it's a one year degree course that cost me almost 20k. and you know what? it's for the sake of i-n-t-e-r-e-s-t. not because i will get a higher pay. not because of better career opportunities. but solely for interest. of course, i hope to develop a career in this field, but the main thing on my mind currently is to finish the darn course. and enjoy it!

so yes, 3 more weeks to bye bye RT. they offered me a part-time position when they learned my classes are at night.

think i'm dumb enough? tsk.

... ...

some time ago, i received these ginvera samples in my mail. (they came with a underpaid postage fine which up till now i have no idea how to pay.) i'm not sure if the free samples are still on now, but here's my take on them.

green tea nude cover bb cream

i used just once, and dumped the rest away. lol. it gave my complexion a sickly, dull, greyish tone which i immediately disliked. it was also pretty watery, which probably caused the lack of coverage. so personally, bb cream phail.

green tea aqua whitening cream

oil control? like real! i think it made my face even more oily. tsk. no whitening effect whatsoever, but i'm still using it as a night cream since it doesn't break me out and my laneige is finished. scent is pretty nice too.

... ...

bro is having his 21st birthday party at home tomorrow later, and since my dad said it'll also be a mini house warming, i thought i'll finish what i started a few months ago.

no need to tell me they're slanted; i know i know. eh not easy one leh! =X

you know what? i mad loves!! :D but i must have kept it for too long; the adhesive isn't working well anymore and they're starting to peel at the edges. i suppose it won't last very long. at least, i don't have to worry about it peeling my paint off.

off to bed!

a woman's most beautiful piece of clothing

guess what happened to me just now?! as i was closing the door to have a bath, some movement on the top wall caught my eye, and i looked up in time to see a baby lizard falling on me. i would certainly have screamed if it were one of those nasty cockroaches. but in this case, all i could think of was how cute the baby looked as i shook it off and it scurried away. =)

... ...

attended a relative's wedding dinner at orchard hotel last night.

dinner wasn't as bad as i had expected. we had a table to ourselves, and SSD came along too. not to mention the free flow of red wine. lols. the food was not bad too.

the bride was beautiful too. though it doesn't really matter much to me cos i haven't seen her before. they're just one of those meet-once-a-year relatives you see.

it was when i came home and happened to see 妈's raw wedding shots on facebook. now i really believe it when they say "a woman is at her most beautiful when she's in her wedding dress". i'm not saying 妈 isn't normally pretty, but it's a totally different kind of beautiful i saw in those photos. sighh.

off to maple. at least, i'm ALREADY married over there. -_-

anybody else celebrates 1 year 6 months together? we do! :D

blue roses sent to my office in the morning. though the silly one told me about them yesterday, so no fun already. but still very happy. many more 18 months to go. and that taiwan trip. and that barcelona trip. muacks!

dinner at coffee club, so i could have my slipper lobster. but no more this dish!! sad. so i had the skippers delight while SSD had chicken and mushroom baked rice. his was so cheesy! i like! lols. then shared a mudpie. yes, kill me for taking coffee AND ice cream in my current state.

been down with flu, sore/itchy throat and cough for the past week or so. and i've probably infected 1 engineer, 1 colleague, and 1 boss in the office. yayness. friday is a big day. off to bed! :(
