i havent seen you since a little more than three weeks ago. one more day until you’re home, i missed you so much. i'm happiest when i'm being myself and i'm myself when i'm w you... my happy pill's coming back to me soon!!!! my junkfood buddy, we need a junkfood fix! in case youre wondering, apparently my boy's one of my few friends who's willing to pig out on junkfood w me. but most importantly, no more unnecessary tears at night. gonna bury my face in his chest and give him a fucking tight bear hug when i see him (what if i run to him? hahaha so drama) also gonna drag two big luggages to the airport on friday morning, pick my happy pill up from the airport, do some catching up/probably breakfast/roam around the airport, then off we head to the land of smiles! a tad too rushy for my boy though, but i'm glad we could come up w a compromise somehow, w his army exercise grr. army exercise's a killjoy. but whatever. i'm so excited for our first trip abroad together, i even made us a travel booklet! i've got so many places i want to visit, jotted them all down, and of course we're so going to eat our hearts out. phad thai, can you hear me already? cheap and good street food, here i come!!
i know we're going to have so much fun.

i cant wait to see you dear... at the airport.
cant wait to just look at my favorite face, and be right beside my favorite boy.
i'll be seeing you soon FOR REAL this time :')

of course, had the usual photospam and group shot. and i especially love this one, just look at the couples - all looking so alike!! i read about couples looking alike ages ago, so apparently it's true that couples grow to look more like each other overtime, and in addition, the happier the couple the more likely they look alike... i guessed my dear girls and their boys are pretty much enjoying having each other, hehe. all machiam ctrl + c, ctrl + v please.

made a trip to haji lane w the girls for clare's photojournalism cdc elective after watching you're the apple of my eye. it's gonna be my turn soon next term, but no i'm not taking photojournalism, i'm actually taking.............. jap. just realised that this will be the second foreign language that im picking up from np (i took basic french last year). jap wasnt my top few choices though. but still, i guess it'll help me in some ways.....well somehow. oh yeah sean loves jap girls haha...

Shadows will be lost in the light.

nothing exactly interesting happened the past week other than my whole internship application saga. just to sum up - apparently i was assigned two months internship because my gpa hasnt met the cut off point for the six months internship programme. i wrote in, appealed, got a call, had a talk w the relevant staff and there i was given a chance to do my six months internship overseas because my gpa was fucking close to the cut off. but i rejected the offer after thinking real hard for a night.. apparently most of my friends encouraged me to take up the offer reason being, not everyone's given that damn opportunity, and of course i know that the things i'll learn overseas are priceless. but after weighing my options, yes i've made up my mind, i dropped the offer. i'm pretty happy w it actually, i mean it's not as easy as it seems ya know... overseas, and there's so many other factors to think about, especially the trade-offs.
that said, i wished i knew what i really want sometimes, i mean like right from that start? i have had too many similar situations in my life - three years ago when i was in sa, i got into odac after a series of endurance run and trials(well people got eliminated halfway through) i managed to clear all my rounds, but i decided to quit joining in the end. then the same year, i got through all the student councillor's interviews and stages, but eventually i backed out after getting in. and that was just two to illustrate. i really cant figure how my mind works sometimes..

i'm quite a lucky girl though. somehow, i always have people looking out for me, caring for me and helping me with anything and everything. i'm always given lots of opportunities to do this and that too.. well but talk about seizing opportunities, im not too sure if im good at it at all.
but i truly believe that my final decision's the best for me, and it will make me happiest in the long run.

and now the question is, what should i specialise in next year?
hmm.............................

Daydreamer, sittin’ on the seat

just texted sean's mom,
"hi aunty! tmr's 11/11/11! even though from what most people see, it's just another ordinary day, it actually only happen once in hundred years. so do spend his day w your loved ones, and in this case, uncle.... :) hhaa"

wish you were here.

my not-so-romantic 11/11/11:
gonna head to school for lect, lunch, start on our proj, attend tutorials till 6pm (ikr fuck my life it's a fri man!!)
but on a happier note, i'm gonna meet my bestfriend for some kichn yumz before they cease all operations... (ok now i feel sad again)

flexible menu where you get to choose your own base, main and sauce.
i had my eyes set on fried dory/chilli crab sauce while weijie had chicken cutlet/cream.

so i mentioned previously, made a trip to kichn before they officially closed. sucha pity, i really enjoy the food served at kichn, sucha good find. discovered kichn way back last year after read sittingwishingeating's, bookmarked her post on kichn since then, and have yet to pay a visit. apparently i came to know that C works there, and they're gonna close down soon (again, the power of twitter...) so i told myself i must pay a visit before they close, dont wanna regret. dragged weijie along w me - he got to thank me man, brought him to some hidden gem. loved the laid back dinner.

my camera died right after taking pica of the menu, so weijie's instagram came handy (ok actually i dled on his iphone because i need to snap pictures haha)
<span class=
same concept too for the iceblended drinks
<span class=
that was some huge ass cutlet and dory fillet, and my chilli crab sauce was so good.....
<span class=
<span class=
good to see C, lol since primary school days..

also, weijie promised to make me these ramen eggs. i seriously have some kind of eggs obsession, i'm in love w all kinds of eggs. we had some ramen dinner sometime back and he was saying he could make these, and took up the challenge. and wow im so impressed!! because i cant even...... but thanks so much! i knew he spent so much time on these eggs (and also, had to down so many eggs prior to the perfect one haha)

omg look at the yolk, so good!!

-glamour november 2011

am i the only one who hated the long weekend that just passed? i know i could've made the most out of it and do something more productive -pampering myself, or even better, do some fucking work, but i was so uninspired. first time in my life i felt that 24hours a day's too much. even 12hours was so hard to get by. all i did was eat and sleep, and repeat. i stayed at home mostly, and i rested far too long. right, whatever. just let me ramble on here. before you think that i'm crazy for hating the long weekend, i shall make things clear - reason why i hate the long weekend: i'm away from my boy. he's my "only" friend, oh well... i do feel sad for myself haha.
wanted to work to keep my mind off negative thoughts and shit, and possibly stop myself from missing that boy too much, but things happened... even so that i wanted to work, my colleagues and i were all dismissed. sad is life. maybe i should just go have fun(my definition of fun changed so much ever since i got a bf..... nope not even strip dares anym, everything's just so dull and boring w/o him around haha fuck this), make lists of happy things, bake some cupcakes, do things i always wanted to do, go to the cd stores and grab some good old record, or plan on our future trips? or i might as well start day dreaming all over again. i'm pretty good at it. i cant wait for him to get back to sg, weekends with the boyfriend are never boring even if there's school.

well fact is, i just want to grab him and kiss him all over, so bad. it's killing me.

i have quite a bit to share:

sunday brunch date at riders cafe! two/three weeks ago i think? finally crossed this one off the list. wow it actually means a lot because both goodfren and i agreed way back that we must not visit riders at all (yes, at all) w any other people, and that we will have our double date right at riders cafe. i actually went to dig out this post, i have evidence. most importantly, cheers to the double date! ♥ (and am constantly feeling happy for all my girls hehe)

the place was bustling, and we did not make any reservations prior to that, hence we waited quite some time before we had a table to ourselves. so it's advisable to actually make a reservation before heading down - i mean you wont want to leave without having a meal at the cafe especially when you actually traveled all the way to the barely accessible place (yes you NEED a car or you know, you can just cab away)

stupid wind(+we're not ready for the camera) resulting in the goodfrens' having fucked up fringe hahaha
Photobucket
we each ordered a set from the brunch menu! i wouldnt say the food was fantas (my poached egg yolk wasnt even runny..... meh disappointed), but the place was not too bad, ambiance wised. it was a good date my the goodfren couplez nonetheless hehe.


and back in september (yes i know how long ago alr), sean and i moved around quite a bit. uhm i mean we explored quite a bit, especially the east and the north part of sgp. we traveled back and forth, and it actually went on for two consecutive saturdays. i love long bus rides, especially spontaneous ones - we didnt know where we were going, we just hopped on a random bus, drop off at random stops, and hop on another bus - and repeat. so for the first weekend, we had our bus hopping adventure after our lunch at canopy garden dining restaurant off bishan park 2(situated at angmokio), ended up returning to mountbatten, kallang, and marine parade for a couple of times, before landing at toa payoh - where we decided to head to the bedok for dinner in the end. (my love for hawker food...god. char kway teow, fried carrot cake, fried hokkien mee, xiaolongbaos... four portion of food just for the two of us.)

i love foodhunting, and checking out new places. been wanting to head down to canopy for quite sometime, i bookmarked it's url since i first discover it during march last year. i especially liked the fact that it is located among lush greenery. (well at least you dont always have to travel to botanical gardens/dempsey....) there's another resto directly opposite - greenroom cafe. they serves mostly organic and vegetarian dishes though.
Photobucket
took this after the rain....

we were stucked in the rain, in fact we stood outside aramsa spa for more than half an hour before we actually went in, borrowed an umbrella from them so that we could head to the resto. wanted to dine in the charming outdoor garden though, we had no choice but to have our food indoor. i chose eggs royale instead of the usual eggs benedict i would order when i pick from any brunch set, while sean picked some lobsty pasta. the eggs were poached beautifully, those yellow sunny goodness oozed out at the poke of my fork. i love runny yolks so bad. we also ordered milkshakes that cost us more than $10 each, the drinks did not do the job for either of us though.

bus hopping adventure began and we only dropped off at tpy in the evening, we were just navigating around aimlessly. made our way to tpy town park just opposite hdb hub, we were here once for a photoshoot. there's always something about parks which calms the soul, the rays of sunlight brightened up the whole place too, so refreshing to watch...
