Days of my Life (4)

leave a comment »

It’s been way too long. I just got back from a work trip in Adelaide, before that I was in Shanghai for a short holiday as well, and next week I will be heading over to the States for my honeymoon 🙂

Not too long ago I was still complaining that I haven’t been on holidays and right now, I am jetting off almost every week! ;p

I have a lot of overdue photos, but thought I should start with food, because come on, who doesn’t love looking at food photos right?!

1) Baywater prawn linguine from House @ Dempsey. I always order this when I go there! Craving for it as I look at the photo haha.

2) cheesecake I made for my brother’s birthday in August that was a hit with everyone. The recipe I used is here 🙂

  3) Korean food at Goldhill Plaza! Very authentic, and expensive. Oh well o_o

4) Tried this recipe the other day because we had some chicken breasts left from a BBQ the night before. Didn’t taste as good as I expected it to be! It was good, but I just thought it would be cheesier.

5) Butter chicken at Goldhill Plaza with my new Sonny Angel that I got for 2 other friends too. I just had butter chicken again last night and I will be going there again and again. Yes to places with no service charge!

 

Now excuse me while I go run some errands and also book some beauty appointments before my trip next Friday. Xx

Convocation – 21 April 2012

leave a comment »

21 April is one of the most anticipated days in 2012. For me, because it’s my convocation day! Honestly I thought I would be super happy that day and all, but all I felt was tiredness. Probably because I had already stopped school for half a year and the excitement of being done with studying has already worn off.

And also, because I had to rush from the airport straight home to take a quick shower and do my make up on the way to Fullerton. I was in US for a work trip and the jet lag + the tiredness from meetings all week just made me extremely grumpy.

But anyway, I am GLAD that it is finally over and I got to wear the graduation cap!

*all photos were taken by my sis*

It was a quick ceremony since our course wasn’t very big (~80people).

Look at my tired face! But still managed a big smile for the camera hahah 😉

Since Fullerton was just next to the Singapore river, we went out for some photos after the reception.

some of my classmates…many memories of mugging together, and glad that we do not have to mug anymore but just chill out over a cup of ice cream.

Now on the next chapter of my life…this new job and a new home 🙂

1) Pink cupcakes I baked a while back. I haven’t baked ever since I started working TWO months ago!

2) Manicure at Far East Shine Studio

3) Cute sign at Artease

4) Boon Lay Nasi Lemak stall at Novena mrt station, thanks to Cecilia’s recommendation when I was craving badly for nasi lemak but has no idea where to get it.

5) 2 times food adventure at Marmalade Pantry (Ion Orchard), not impressed by the food at all for the price I am paying. Guess there won’t be a third time!

6) Pretty Zara collection. I try not to step into Zara too often now, need to control my spending! Out of sight, out of mind.

7) Flower clips I got from H&M. Yes, that’s all the colors that is available. And yes, if there’s more colors I probably would get them too because I am such a sucker.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful weekend everyone! Xx

Red is for Prosperity.

(Should have posted this yesterday, but better late than never!)

The 15 days of CNY is over and I’m glad I did not eat as much bak gua as I expected. I’m not moving much recently, so easting less will help in lessening my weight gain lolol.

As I’m usually not a social butterfly among family members, I didn’t take any photos at all during my visits. But, we did take a family photo before we left the house on Chu Yi 😉

Sis: what are you wearing tomorrow?

Me: don’t know lei…you wearing that red dress?

Sis: ya…

Me: ok lor, then I also wear red…MOMMY! everyone wear red tomorrow ok?!

My dress isn’t new, but I don’t care for traditions much. What matters is that the whole family is in synergy right? 🙂

Days of my Life (2)

When there is time, I snap a quick picture but it doesn’t warrant a post of its own. But I would still like to share them so I decided to do this ‘Days of my life’ series which shows how I spend my days and the things I saw.

I had wanted to try Project 365 but I know I will forget or I will be stressed on deciding which photo is the best for the day and that will take the fun out of photography, no?

*********

1) T accompanying me for an interview, heh.

2) Baked some cupcakes! But, my icing failed. AGAIN!

3) the mega rainbow everybody saw the other day.

4) Breakfast at Cedele. The best scone I had was in England!

5) Furniture shopping. So excited about how everything is turning out. In fact, it’s like a dream 🙂

6) The usuals at Ikea. major love the chicken wings and meatballs.

7) My new bedside cupboard from Ikea. Storing most of my makeup and accessories now.

8) candle corner! Wish there are more places that sell candles in Singapore.

ok here goes!

1) Random GIF while preparing to go out, hehe.

2) Stuff I got from Watsons recently. Eyemask is really good!

3) Strictly Pancakes (44A Prinsep Street) with my sister and mom – I enjoyed my pancakes a lot! Not sure why a lot of people seems to be disappointed with the food quality. Are there better pancakes elsewhere?! Please share. I do think they are on the pricy side though, averaging between $20-25/pax for one main and a drink.

4) Eyelashes and glue I bought from Changi City Point – the glue is really awesome! Let me know if you want a review? 🙂

5) Waiting for go for a dinner with T.

6) Aquamarine @ Marina Mandarin – dessert selection is really good! salmon is awesome much too ❤

7) Watami @ Raffles City – bummed that my ramen has a normal egg instead of the gooey one but the soup is quite good as compared to normal ramen places. Ramen champion is still the best, of course.

8) At Marina Bay Sands waiting for friends to come to spend the NYE’s together. The view was spectacular, I ❤ fireworks!
