2011



2010 is grinding to a halt, which means it's time to pen down an emotional & deep post reflecting on what have we done this year, & that ambitious resolutions for 2011.


Quite frankly, my resolutions every year is almost the same; & that reflective post is really, not that reflective.


I find it hard to put my years into beautiful phrases of sentences. This is why I love lists.


Chronology of  Significantt Events - 2010

1.
I have found my passion - finally! Okay, maybe not much of a passion. But a field of interest that is actually useful. I have a shitload of interest ranging from saving orang utans to baking macaroons. I have decided to study economics, let's cross our fingers that I won't change my mind.


2.
I can now drive. I know, pretty damn awesome. I have a love hate relationship with driving. I love how I can sit in the car and listen to the radio, I hate how people don't put signals when changing lane, or how they tailgate, or how they drive too close to my car's ass, & the list goes on.


3.
I started using (brown)gel liner & colour contacts. Yes, it is significant enough to make it onto the list. 


4.
I made new friends, and lost a friend. No comment.


5.
I'm in college. I miss high school, I don't think I'll miss college the same.  The few things I like about college is that I don't need to get up early, and there much less number of students in class. It's much easier to study when the classroom is smaller and the lecturer is in my face.I enjoy my new subjects, I definitely prefer economics & accounting to chemistry. I hate chemistry! I don't know why I suck so bad at it.


6.
I kind of decided my future education path. I've talked about this before, but I wouldn't be studying at UK anymore. *glass shatters, dream crushed*. Lol, joking. I am disappointed that I will not be doing that, but I can understand why... Maybe next time I have a successful husband to bring me there. I've always wanted to see red telephone booths and thousand year old buildings.




Right, I'm so over doing this list. 


Going off to a vacation soon! I hope I come back with good photographs. Fingers crossed I don't get my ass freezed in the snow. Till then,



...Have a wonderful Christmas!

Till the morning sun will rise




So Jun Wei has been gone for one day, I have not spoken to him for not 24 hours yet, but almost. You see, I'm not sad because he's so many oceans and time zones away from me, I'm sad because he is still on the plane!

Damn, California is far. I always get worried when my loved ones are on the plane. 

Up side is that he should be one hour away from arriving - according to flightstats.com. He brought his laptop and handphone. So hopefully there's wifi & he can contact me!

I couldn't really sleep last night because I was worried. Ridiculous, I know. I think I slept around 2 and I keep waking up since then. Terrible. I kept dreaming of him too!




On the brighter notes, I have been keeping myself busy since holidays started.

Yesterday I went to the book store and bought art papers and paint brushes. I actually painted lotus flower yesterday! The last time I painted was Form 3! Haha, I really like to paint. It's almost therapeautic. & it takes my mind of Jun Wei being on a plane!



Yesterday night I went to play basketball, badminton with my siblings. I'm thankful for them. There's never a quiet moment. It was fun despite the games didn't really happen. Due to the windy night & my super lack of skills with basketball.




SO yeah, today I'd be making an apple pie! I already found the recipe. I should go and buy the vanilla ice cream to accompany it. (:

G'BYE!






P/S, 2 days ago I went on a 'double-date' with Wee Shen & his girlfriend. We played bowling and I got 9 points in the overall game. SUPER EMBARASSING.


P/P/S, Leaving for Hokkaido in 8 days!


P/P/S, If you're on holiday like me, maybe you'd be interested in this project - the Post Crossing project. It's really fun, you get to collect post cards from all over the world. Go check it out!

It's a special day. II

So... It was my Valentine's Day yesterday. Jun Wei & I went out to celebrate it. It's not much of a celebration, but we had a great dinner!


We ate at Sumika, which is located at SS15. I know right, such a bad environment. But the food is superb, even Jun Wei agreed. & trust me, he has such high standards for food. Picky palette. Tsk tsk.

Anyway, it's a yakitori restaurant frequently patronised by Japanese. The chef is a Japanese and the waitress there all speaks Japanese. The price is not cheap, but I would say very worthy for the quality of food you get.

I usually come here with my family, but I decided to bring Jun Wei here because I thought he might like it, & I was so right. 


The Japanese chef, he was so pro okay! He can touch the hot food with his bear hands. & when I say hot, I mean fresh off/ right on the charcoal grill hot!

Clockwise from top left : Chicken wings, Oyakodon (Or something like that.. It's rice with egg & chicken), butter with mushrooms, pork & mushrooms.



Wash it down with a cold fizzy can of beer and a really yummy piece of beef! 



We ordered grilled chicken skin too, but I didn't take any photos of that. It sounds gross, but it's really yummy. Especially for chicken skin fans like me. Jun Wei doesn't take chicken skin and he liked it! It was crispy and salty, perfection! 









Anyway. Jun Wei gave me a gift today. I love it so much.  It's a Thomas Sabo charm. He gave me a charm and a bracelet two years ago, and now I have another charm from him. I love my charm bracelet. (:

It's a special day.





I know it's no where near Valentine, but my Valentine's Day falls on the 7th every month.

 
Love, it's a special day
We should celebrate and appreciate
That you and me found something pretty neat
And I know some say this day is arbitrary
 
Love, I don't need those things
I don't need no ring
I don't need anything
But you with me
'Cause in your company
I feel happy, oh so happy and complete




Happy 25th Month Honey Bee.

It gets better everyday. (:

Cake Gives Me Hope.

Recently I found a new love. It's so magical, it's love at first sight. After I got to know him a little more, it gets even better. Now I cannot stop thinking about him, and I cannot wait till I next see him. This time, I'm going to go see him without Jun Wei. I don't want to share. I want to have it all by myself. The thought of it makes my senses tingle, and I cannot forget how it melted my heart and took away all my sorrows yesterday.












It's the berry meringue from Alexis.


The fluffy cream (cheese?), the crumbly brown sugared crust, the sweet and crunchy berries. YUM.



Yesterday, Jun Wei & I decided to go somewhere after college. It has been a long week for me, and for him too. It was like fate, we almost went to Pyramid, almost went to Mid Valley, but finally decided on BSC.

I'm always a cake person, I love cakes! It's my favourite food, right next to ice cream, right next to rice.

A good piece of cake is medicine to cure stress! It's true you know, since desserts is actually stressed spell backwards.
