foodie weekend

i'm left with 1 and 1/3 reports to complete. hopefully i can start on my final one by monday, due in 2 weeks' time. argh. and hopefully my assignment twos can help pull up the just-pass grades i got for the assignment ones. :oops: all 3 lecturers said the same thing - not enough references! like super demoralizing can?! but at least one of them was encouraging enough to say "first semester usually like that one, cos you all don't know how to do referencing."

that's one thing me and my group of first-sems don't understand - if we're supposed to copy and paste what other people say, is there even a point to doing report? won't everyone's report be similar? :|

ah wells. *face palm*

was at clarke quay for dinner yesterday. SSD made me happy by saying we were gonna have buffet at fisherman's market, before he realized it was $50++ per pax. :? so we had manhattan's instead.

they have like, the BEST mushroom soup ever! lol.

cheesy fries were kinda disappointing cos i prefer skinny fries to these.

my upsized dory fish n chips. so yummy but would have enjoyed it more if i wasn't worrying about how to finish all the food.

SSD's seafood spaghetti. (p/s. the shop n save near my house ran out of alfredo sauce so i have to get tomato. *sad face*)

really have to stop stuffing myself like that. =\

went for a walk near the river, and there were lanterns of the 12 zodiac animals lined and lighted up. mine's rabbit and SSD's rat.

the rat look so weird right?! the face like 壽包. rofl. i wonder who designed it. and the snake got ears one. but their dragon is cute. t-rex! (though dragon and dino same meh?) lols. piggy is cute too!


... ...

and then it's POLLING DAY today! who did you vote for? :P

after that, we went to see horrible bosses. i kinda didn't expect it to be m18 again. and it was even worse than bridesmaids. SSD getting nottier and nottier. tsk!

i think we need to go watch cars 2. it's cartoon. very healthy. yep. :?

dinner at ah ma's place. and aunt bought the choc tart i liked! ok so the strawberry's sour, but the crust is thin and when you bite into it you get a whole mouthful of yummy chocolate.

ahhh~ someone convince me chocolate ain't fattening. it's from naomi kitchen by the way. :)

a (pretty) useless post

i have a 'new' schoolbag! :D

lol actually this bag has been with me for quite some time already. but i realized that the design, although not bad-looking, was dumb. which resulted in me having to DIY tie those 2 ribbons there. stingy me didn't want to throw it out cos it isn't spoiled, so i'm hoping the heavy book i carry everyday can help spoil the bag. like what it did to my pretty ribbon stud bag. =(

lol very 無聊 right? show you something even more 無聊.




ta da~

rofl. we were talking about the food stall near my house that was having a lucky draw to win iphones/ipads. *smack SSD*

... ...

one thing i'm starting to dislike about school (apart from weird lecturers) - sucky administration! i thought my internship issue was already settled in june. now it appears the school has confused itself, and me with it. i have 4 official documents, 2 saying that i need to do, and 2 saying i don't.

so need to do or not? -_-'''

the power of mother nature

(don't you hate shaky hands? :|)

SSD bought this lone rose for me on saturday afternoon. and for the whole day, he left it coned up in newspaper. by the time i reached home and placed it in water (around 2am!), it was practically half-dead. the stalk was almost dried up, leaves were closed and limp, and the petals turned dark, hung down and were falling off.

the next day, the leaves had opened, petals looked strong and revived, and even the color looked brighter. the photo above was taken on monday night. still looks fresh eh?

ahhh~ the power of water. tap water to be exact. :P

wash, rinse, repeat.

i should be working on my sales report but i'm simply not in the mood to do so. and when i'm not in the mood, nothing comes out no matter how hard i try. but i guess i need to start soon. maybe, sunday? since i'll be out saturday as well. :|

anyways, just came back some time ago from late night movie with SSD. don't you love free tickets?

have been wanting to watch this ever since it came out. anything animal is good. :P

and the animals are so funny! like the crow that isn't a zoo animal. oh, and griffin peeing on the poor wolf. that one was super funny! its expression after that was...priceless! rofl. and many many more. no regrets watching it!=)

... ...

met up with the ex-colleagues for dinner at suki nihon mura. waiting time was around an hour. terrible!

we all had the buffet and it was madness. total food ordered was like, 2-3 times what you see up there. i think it was because majority of the tables were having buffet as well and we thought they mixed up / left out our orders. so we ordered again and in the end they came twice.

so funny when i was picking the pickles off the bacon asparagus, and PL was like, "can you please eat the main dish instead of the garnish?" rofl. was super duper full. such a long time since i felt like that. 我知錯了! 下次不敢了!

it's been ages since i last laughed and crapped and went crazy with them. miss those good old days. gonna meet one more time next month (hopefully) before 親愛的 leaves. she resigned by the way. RT is mad f-ed up. lols. it's a pity i won't be able to attend 媽's wedding dinner in october and meet up with the rest of them again. argghh!

crazy camwhoring while waiting for the lift. and all of them turned out blur. :-?

... ...

speaking of 媽's wedding dinner, it irks me so badly that i have to skip it because a cousin's wedding dinner is on the same day. and what irks me further is that it's a shotgun wedding.

i'm the kind (the kind that hates kids) who'll rather get rid of the baby rather than to spoil the meaning of a wedding in this manner. (yes hate me.)

weddings are like, special and so meaningful. especially the exchange of vows and rings and the wedding gown! (why should the gown be compromised because of a baby bump?) the whole thing represents a couple's commitment and promise to each other. special thoughts and effort should be put into planning such a magical event.

doing it in a rush and for any reason other than love and commitment to each other is just insulting the meaning of weddings. and i don't really like being part something like that. :x

oh wells, i'm weird. too bad no one thinks like that anymore nowadays.

pasta, anyone?

let's talk about pasta today. ever since i starting schooling again, i've taken to budget-eating to save my resources. which means, pasta and pasta sauce!

tried this one because it was on sale. pretty mushroomy, but i won't be getting it again. i used to finish a bottle of pasta sauce in 3 days, but i took almost 2 weeks to finish this one. seriously, it kinda turns me off pasta. =\

i'll stick to my usual alfredo by leggo's anytime.

... ...

have been chasing lives of omission (潛行狙擊) too. it started airing in HK early this month, so i have to wait for each episode to be uploaded again.

michael tse reprises his role as laughing gor, an undercover cop. also starring bosco wong, fala chen and kate tsui. can't wait to watch all 30 episodes! :|

... ...

popped over SSD's place last weekend and satisfied my 宮保魚片飯 craving! (oh did i mention i satisfied my macdonald craving on friday?) but it wasn't from the stall i preferred, so...i want to eat again! lol.

then satisfied his crab craving for dinner...

...with baby kailan and ABC soup!

i wish i could eat and eat without getting fat. can't wait for taiwan trip now! 臭豆腐, come to mama~~

... ...

a couple of meaningful pictures.

... ...

one report 95% down, 3 more to go! 加油!

it's almost the weekend~!

and to cheer you up, let me share something i came across on someone's blog.

20 strange sex laws

  1. there are men in guam whose full-time job is to travel the countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege of having sex for the first time. reason: under guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry.

  2. most middle eastern countries recognize the following islamic law: after having sexual relations with a lamb, it is a mortal sin to eat its flesh.

  3. in lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the animals must be female. having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death.

  4. anywhere in the US, it's illegal to use any live endangered species, except insects, in public or private sexual displays, shows or exhibits depicting cross-species sex.

  5. in bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman's genitals, but it is forbidden from looking directly at them during the examination. he may only see their reflection in a mirror.

  6. in hong kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. (the husband's lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired.)

  7. in santa cruz, bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman and her daughter at the same time.

  8. in the state of washington, there is a law against having sex with a virgin under any circumstances including the wedding night.

  9. in cali, columbia, a woman may only have sex with her husband, and the first time this happens, her mother must be in the room to witness the act.

  10. no woman may have sex with a man while riding in an ambulance within the boundaries of tremonton, utah. if caught, the woman can be charged with a sexual misdemeanor and her name is to be published in the local newspaper. the man isn't charged  nor is his name revealed.

  11. in romboch, virginia, it is illegal to engage in sexual activity with the lights on.

  12. it's illegal to have sex without a condom in nevada.

  13. it's illegal for any member of the nevada legislature to conduct official business wearing a penis costume while the legislature is in session.

  14. in arizona, florida, idaho, indiana, massachusetts, mississippi, nebraska, nevada, new york, ohio, oklahoma, oregon, south dakota, tennessee, utah, vermont, washington, and wisconsin, an erection that shows through a man's clothing is illegal.

  15. no man is allowed to make love to his wife with the smell of garlic, onions, or sardines on his breath in alexandria, minnesota. if his wife requests so, law mandates that he must brush his teeth.

  16. in minnesota, it is illegal for any man to have sexual intercourse with a live fish. (apparently is it okay for woman.)

  17. muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse. this also applies to undertakers; the sex organ of the deceased  must be covered with a brick or piece of wood  at all times.

  18. an ordinance in newcastle, wyoming, specifically bans couples from having sex while standing inside a store's walk-in meat freezer.

  19. the penalty for masturbation in indonesia is decapitation.

  20. in hotels in sioux falls, south dakota, every room is required to have twin beds. and the beds must always be a minimum of 2 feet apart when a couple rents a room for only one night. and it's illegal to make love on the floor between the beds.

now, aren't you happy we don't have such laws in singapore? :P

... ...

also came across another blog (yes i like to blog-hop!) of someone who had just quit her job, and is basically just taking a break.

she mentions that it's not hard to type the resignation letter. life is more than just working your ass off. people just have to stop in the rat race and pursue what they really want. life is short. *plays if tomorrow never comes by ronan keating*

somewhat true. but while it comforts me to know that i'm not the only one slacking at home, i still miss spending my own money. sobs.

an obligatory NDP post

happy 46th birthday! :)

... ...

SSD and i spent the first half of the day watching twisted (撞鬼).

it was free because we had sponsors to 'support local production'. and i see why they need to do that. it was horribly LAME. even with me peeking through my shawl almost 90% of the time. -_-'''

there was no storyline (or too cheem that i don't understand), and humor was so scarce i don't think it can be considered a comedy. it was just....scary. that's all. i shall be nice (or bad) and give you all main spoilers so you don't have to waste your time and money.

story 1 -  ah beng drug dealer and his mistress are quarreling in his new car while driving at night. she's upset that he asked her to abort their baby, so she threatens to die. ah beng drives faster and faster to scare her, down a lonely stretch of road, and crashes into the rocks. she flies out of the car and dies. ah beng tries to walk around, un-fruitfully in circles, ending up back at the car. her ghost come back to kill him, and they fight, with him supposedly strangled to death. cops arrive, and find her shoe. apparently she already drowned the week before.

story 2 - 4 flight attendants on a trip to somewhere and spend the night partying. 2 guys spike the drink of the other 2 gals, hoping to get them into bed. in separate rooms, one gal (tracy) accidentally trips and knocks her head. the other gal (linda) was saved by a friend, became worried about tracy, and asks friend to check it out. he brings the manager to open the door, and find the 2 guys and tracy's body. afraid of being found out, they killed the latter 2 guys. linda tries to look for them, getting kidnapped while doing so. while disposing their bodies at the carpark, linda ends up killing both of them, and goes mad. -_-

story 3 - 2 conman make a living by pretending to perform exorcisms. one day, a real case happens. the 'master', who has some exorcism training by his father, tries to help. he discovers that the young girl was possessed by her father, who was killed by his wife/her mother. while leaving, these 2 conman accidentally cause the ah beng drug dealer to crash his car. they offer to repair it at their workshop, which in turn links back to the first story, where the ah beng collects his new car before meeting the mistress. oh yeah, at the end of the show, ah beng is given the death penalty for drug dealing, which means he didn't die in the first story.

that's about it. seriously a waste of my time. should have slept longer. @_@

... ...

after suki breakfast/lunch, we went to UOB to meet up with his family, before heading to the padang. it's this ntuc income ndp event which we also attended last year.

red and white umbrellas everywhere. apparently young ntuc is trying to break its own record of the largest human flag. we did several trial runs, opening and closing our umbrellas, before the whole thing was aired live, or so we were told.

other stuff:

pretty sea of little blue shimmering lights!

left a little before 8pm and split ways. we went nearer the esplanade to catch the fireworks.

i took a video this time! but show you shots from SSD first.

here's my video:

you know what? after it all stopped, everyone thought that was it, so we all starting moving off. then suddenly it started again! and they were my favorite type too! but too late to take out sotongball again, so i could just watch. :(

ah wells, i love fireworks. lol. no more until 01-01-2012 i guess. boo!

hauls from JB~!

and so, SSD came back from JB with stuff he bought for me.

uber cute rabbit case! have been wanting one for ages, but i'm too stingy to spend $10 when i have my louis vuitton one already. SSD got it for less than that. :D

comes with a fluffy pink bunny tail at the back to stick on too (not shown)! it's supposed to let the whole phone stand and for coiling any cables or whatever. and when the front's dirty, you pluck it off and clean the screen with it. but i kept it away cos i don't want it to become botak. lols.

shall keep the rilakkuma one to use for taiwan, and it's so gonna match the button! *excited* i sure hope the quality's better than the previous rilakkuma one i had though. hope the ears don't break off! :P

tempted to get the rilakkuma screen protector to complete the set. should it?

... ...

was browsing lolsnaps some time ago and came across this one which i'm guilty of sometimes.

anyone else guilty too?

i misses you. all.

yesterday was fun. even though i overslept and didn't do much gaming or report.

went for another massage session. after such a long time. the masseuse was nice. it was painful, but super shiok that i nearly fell asleep. lol. and blasted $630 after that. though considering it's somewhat spread into 9 months. hmmmm.

then met dear zhu and cher. after such a long time too. it felt somehow wonderfully weird having a girly night out cos it's been like, almost a month since i've had such lovely girly meetups. classmates now just don't give me that feeling as old friends and ex-colleagues do.

anyway, we walked around and decided upon this chinese restaurant, i think due to its aircon and quiet ambience. (forgot to bring sotongball out today, which explains the sucky froggie photos.)

we chose the upper level, and together with the lower level, there were like, 4 or 5 tables occupied only. but ironically, food took damn long to arrive. zhu's black pepper chicken noodle thingy.

cher's beef noodle thingy. smelt so nice. =\

and my seafood horfun was the last to arrive. like, 30 minutes later? though seafood is pretty much the easiest to cook. lol.

it was very good actually. in fact i think they all were pretty good. price was reasonable and no service charge/gst. would probably go back IF i happen to pass by there, not too hungry, and don't mind the long long wait. :P

and then dessert time! cher said i intro-ed her this dessert stall but i totally can't remember doing that. my memory's deteriorating! *gasps in shock*

my first time trying milk pudding. was kinda weird at first but in the end i decided i quite like it! there's this strong milky taste and a egg-white aftertaste. nice!

mango and pomelo thingy. too sweet for my liking i guess.

headed to ann siang hill for drinks. okay i admit i seldom go there. in fact, it's my 2nd time there and the first was with them too. noisy pubs just aren't my thing. i think i'll stick to my same old empty and quiet clarke quay riverside pub.

they chose this small, blue-ish, noisy pub that looked quite crowded from the outside but surprisingly rather empty inside. pretty purple lights!

finally had my long island. missed it so much! this one still pales in comparison to harry's though. and much more ex! =\

cher's irish bailey. nice chocolate milk taste. but so rich and creamy; i'll stay on my island. :)

zhu's sweet lychee martini. with 3 big fat lychees. lols.

last night was loves. can we have more of this? even though i'll be broke. :D

... ...

slept a couple of hours and woke up at 6am for breakfast. SSD's off to JB today. so it's gaming and report-writing for me. hmmm. game first! =X
