May 26, 2010

it was two years ago, a wednesday. i don't remember much, other than heading out that evening, met up a friend and a couple of people for dinner, w no other intention besides to just hang out at zouk that night. i wasn't expecting to meet you.

you were all i could think about ever since i first met you that frigid night two years ago. all i knew was that my heart was dancing. we shared our first laugh, first smile, first kiss. i remembered how your arms embraced me, the warmth of your body against mine, and i remembered how you held me. what a night. i couldn't seem to forget you, and i was so glad we started texting, hung out eventually, and then it felt so right and everything just fell into place. it's crazy huh? everything was so quick, we were crazily in love and i had never felt that way w anyone else before. yet i was so sure this was what i wanted, you were all i wanted. two years have passed, and you are still here holding me just the same, kissing me and loving me the same as you did two years ago, or perhaps even deeper. i always questioned myself what have i done to deserve such a amazing person, amazing soul and amazing heart? i thank god for your presence in my life every single day. thanks for making my life worth while, showering me with so much love, more than i can ever possibly deserve.

i can never get enough of you. you're heaven sent.

i'm sorry you have to see this side of me every time and again. i am seriously sorry you had to see all of that. fucking hate it. i hate myself for behaving like a fucking psycho, so much negativity.

i'm sorry i'm so difficult. i just wanted you to care.
could've done better than to mess things up. now i look like a clown, with puffy swollen eyes but i deserve all of that.

hey folks. i decided to find some time to blog before i get into work again, am i the only one hating e-learning week? i rather do tutorials than completing all the damn assignments (which are compulsory). but it's okay, let's just suck it up. i have a year more to go before i graduate. oh god, i just want to fucking graduate alr. neways, refer to the image above - those are my real lashes! w no mascara on yet. been applying eyeliner on my lower lash line pretty much these days..

and presenting to you, my slutface LOL. "do the slutface leh" and you get this. haha
so, before i start writing about nothing again, i shall make a list. three things today:

1) sean's ord parade
2) recipes and my bakes
3) a video to share

sean's ord parade,
Photobucket
Photobucket
so i attended sean's forth parade throughout his whole two years in army, it's weird but i feel excited every single time i attend one of his parades. i love spotting him from a huge pool of fellow ninja turtles hahaha, you know that kinda thrill? and what a sense of accomplishment, i did it again last weekend. sometimes i kinda envy these guys, i mean, not that i wanna go through all the tough physical trainings (i've heard so much about that every single day haha), not that i want sean to go outfields/overseas trainings and leave me alone here, but i love how army brought these guys close together. all the hardships, all the shit they been through tgt, work tgt to solve it, and even work tgt to runaway from it. i would love to have friends who go through shit with me.. and i mean obviously, these guys wouldnt wanna go through the same shit again, but i'm sure they'll definitely miss their days in army, two whole fucking years - no joke. all those fond memories, no? bmt, scs, ati, and now, pink ic baby! my boy have been waiting so long for this day to come. (not trying to be a killjoy, but well back to school yo' baby.......) haha i'll definitely miss sending him to his camp everyweek though. well, so looking forward to spending more weekdays w the boy.

a week more to go, then FYEAH NO MORE BOOK IN LO! (hahahaha like hyper girl)

really one small boy........ really cannot tell he's turning 23 soon. my little boy.

two years ago, when we started dating, sean was still a tekong boy. time flies. i do not want to go on posting how much we've been through and all, we both knew. all the obstacles faced, compromises made, sacrifices, insecurities, priorities.... lots of stuff. what amazes me is our commitment in this r/s, thanks for teaching me how to love. sounds so cliche, but really. we're done w this phase, and going to another stage of life now. cant wait to see what challenges we're gonna face; i mean obviously i hope life would be smooth sailing but we all know it's bullshit and impossible. whatever it its, i'm ready to embrace it w you. it's gonna be exciting.
i love you my tekong boy, my sgt loke. hahahaha ok i think i better stop here.


recipes, and some recent bakes,
Photobucket
Photobucket
milo cupcakes with condensed milk icing.
click here for the recipe.

sean loves milo. i cant even measure his love for milo and milo products, haha. he can have it with almost anything, everyday. so it only makes good sense to put it into cupcakes as well (thought to myself as i was searching for a decent recipe), and of course, i found this one and i knew i had to try it! in my opinion, milo goes best with condensed milk (horlicks goes well w condensed milk too), so here's just one of it in the cake form. i love the recipe and the cupcakes tasted so good, especially the condensed milk icing. sorry if my images dont look like it, but they tasted divine. thank goodness i made extra icing (it's so sweet and yummy), i could topped it on some marie biscuits and plain crackers. and of course, sean loves the cupcakes! and you know what, i'm gonna make these again.


and the baking streak continues....
i baked these for my mom on mothers' day. mom, i love you with all my heart - or even more than that.
Photobucket
and i liked this one the most out of the three posted here. think moist, crumbly muffins, studded w lovely chunks of apple, and spiced with cinnamon.... i need some soured cream frosting to go w the muffins the next time though.

apple cinnamon muffins
from the book: cupcake heaven by susannah blake

(makes 12)
85g unsalted butter, at room temperature
100g caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
125ml soured cream
150g self raising flour
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 eating apple, peeled, cored, and diced

preheat the oven to 180 degree celsius. beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy, then gradually beat in the egg. stir in soured cream, and combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon, and sift into the mixture. fold in, along w the apples. spoon the mixture into paper cases and bake in the preheated oven for 20min until risen and golden.

blueberry muffins
yet another busy night in the kitchen! i baked these muffins when everyone's asleep. made these for sean's mom on mothers' day as well. sadly, it wasnt as good as what i thought it would be! still, you can get the recipe here.

and lastly, a video to share. this vid has gone viral recently, and yes this one's really funny,

HAHAHAHA

"if you cannot find your seat belt, maybe you're sitting on your seat belt"

these photos are taken by the amazing huiling, sometime back! when huiling first contacted me about doing a little film photoshoot for sean and myself, i was so thrilled! agreed immediately. i mean photoshoots are kinda common, but a film one sounds pretty interesting. i love every photo from this set, thanks so much again dear and i'm really sorry we didnt exactly helped much, we're quite bad at posing..

so here i am, just a quick post before i head to bed for OCS trip tomorrow (ikr i dont even know why we have to, but at least we could give ITI and WISP a miss, so why not!), i have been really busy w school. still the same, constantly procrastinating till the last minute, i dont even know where's my sense of urgency. but i really have to settle my work asap especially since i'm leaving for aussie in a month' time. urgh, fuck deadlines. i'm always so bad at it.

i feel terrible for forcing SIX servings worth of chips down my system. i'm not that of health-freak, neither am i particulary obsessed with calories and shit, but seriously, six servings? the whole tin? after cardio. what the fuck was i thinking? on a brighter note, my little precious-es are dropping in from tmr!! hehe click here and you'll know why am i crazy over it, so damn cute oh god.

goodnight my dear boy.
and to whoever's reading, or if you are sleeping soon.

Food: Off days

Photobucket
Photobucket
back when i was interning at comfort transportation, i had to work on weekends. my only off day was on a weekday - thursdays. oh man, i thank god those days were long gone. so on my off days, i'll definitely pamper myself with nicer food. sean was really cooperative too. he actually took offs on thursdays just to accompany me, and go on dates with me. well actually going out on weekdays are good? cheaper lunches, cheaper movie tix and town's not as crowded!! but i'll definitely love to have weekends to myself. btw i took those two picas otw to work one weekend. i was early, so i alighted earlier, took a stroll along the park before walking to my workplace. i had to, because i just hate doing nothing but going to work on weekends... at least i've got some of my time well spent.

as i was saying.... yes. nicer food. i took sean out on a groupon date - i bought a groupon deal to full house ($19.80 for 2) as well as a groupon deal to the mint museum of toys ($14 for 2) on separate occasions. decided to use them both of the same day. i sure do sound cheapskate, boo.
sean and i have been saving up for our aussie trip, so we havent been splurging on food that much lately. been eating at home more frequent, and will have to think twice, hesitate even before heading for cafe grub sigh. k with that in mind, i've been trying to dine at cheaper alternatives, look for deals/vouchers, or even uob/dbs card promotions and so on. tsk life of a poor girl, but i won't forgo yummy food. what to do?? oh well, but it's all worth it. just to clarify, i don't usually purchase food deals from deal websites because i dont think they're trustworthy. i only purchase when i've heard of the resto and have it on my list-of restos-to-visit. other than that, i WILL NOT buy food deals. and i do not encourage anyone to purchase just any resto deals. if you want quality food, just bear this in mind, "you get what you pay for". as simple as that.

@ full house,
