Company's Family Day

Here are some of the photos taken from my company's Family Day last Sunday 23/Nov. It was held at Singaproe Science Centre, and I went with my husband and my Dui. The Family Day not only includes admission tickets to the SSC itself, but also admission tickets to a Magic Show, the Omni Theater, and the Snow City! We managed to catch the omni movie The Alps, and I am personally (along with everyone who watch the movie), hope to win a 10days trip to Zurich! wahahaha. We didn't manage to visit the Snow City though, as we ran out of time wasting too much time in the Science Centre :(

I Love My Cable TV!

You know I am having a good time with my life if I am not updating my blog fast enough! And you should be happy for me! But truth is, my husband upgraded our SVC cable plan, and I've been sucked into the void of TV-mania every weekday at least! Vegetating in front of the TV from the moment I got back from work, till my sleep time!

What have I been watching? Documentaries! I am addicted to documentaries!
My favourite channels and programs are :
11 NatGeo Channel, especially the Taboo series
12 Discovery Channel, especially The Haunting series
16 Discovery Travel and Living, especially Anthony Bourdain's Travelog
71 Discovery Science, especially the 10 Ways To ...., and What's That About series
95 Biography Channel on anyone famous!

Yes, I am addicted to my TV :)
I have some new photos to upload, but at the moment, I need to compile the TV schedule for the coming week first, so stay tune!

Happy Deepavali

In the spirit of Deepavali, I had a sudden craving for indian candies. So me and my husband went down to Little India to get some. On our journey there we also go henna-ed along the way :)

Here's some photo of our henna. Top left hand is mine, a feminine henna of flowers. It cost S$6 for one hand only, and it dries out in 30 minutes after its drawn on, and you have to leave it there for 6 hours before peeling off the hard clay-like things. That will leave you with a dark brown looking henna on your hand that will last (i was told) 2 weeks. Top right hand is my husband Jaxon's hand. On it is the Sanskrit (संस्कृता वाक्) word "Om(ॐ)" commonly used during meditation, or also for blessing. His henna cost him S$10.

The photo on the bottom is some (yes, just some) of the candies we bought in Little India. A set like that cost $5 per box. You can also get just the milk candies from Komala Villas for $10 per box of 500g milk candies. Really nice!

If you miss the festival this year, do drop by Little India next year during Deepavali.

Sparkling Vinegar

Vinegar for health! And now they come in sparking drinks as well! Taste just wonderful. Found it being sold at Carrefour Singapore. Comes in two favour: Peach, and Apple. The Apple one is nicer since I love the taste of anything cider. Per bottle cost is $2.75, which is kinda on a high side. Anyway, you can also make your own sparkling vinegar. Here is a simple recipe to try it out at home!

77% Sparking Water
10% Fructose (or Raw Honey)
8% Sorghum Vinegar (or any drinkable vinegar)
5% Apple Juice (or any other juice to make other flavour!)

Try the above recipe at your own risk. Best serve chilled or with ice :)

Here's a great site on vinegar to share with you all : Drinking Vinegar

Bintan 2008

This year's annual chalet was held at Indra Maya, Bintan. The place was fabulous, the food splendid, and the people wonderful! Truly an enjoyable weekend with friends. Here to share are some of the photos taken from my hubby's camera as I was smart enough to bring my camera with spare battery, but left the 1G memory card safely at home :( grrrrr

Thanks to Huasoon for inviting us over and helping to book the villa that we stayed in that consist of 3 bedrooms, a private pool, a 6 seater buggy, fully equipt kitchen, and even comes with its own Mahjong set.

Next was the wonderful food. We always bring our own food to cook, and this year was no different. As I only arrived Friday night, the photos here only show the menu of my stay there. Please click photo to view menu in detail.

During the night of the BBQ, one of the interesting activities we did was take photo's of us playing fireworks and spelling/drawing out stuff. The banner for today you see is the word "Love" written with fireworks and captured at night. Cool huh? Here are the couple photos shown here of what is written, and by who. I wonder if we'll look back at these photo's 10, 20 years from now and think how stupid we look :P The video is definately funnier. Hope I can share the video of how the photo was made, and the end result side by side with you once I manage to get them from QX's camera.

Last but not lease, here are some group photo's of us. The family photo is yet to come (also in QX's camera as she is the only one with a 10x zoom camera there :P ). I'll upload those in future :)

Finally, thanks to all my friends who were there. Let's keep up the tradition yearly. Believe it or not, I've known some of you for almost 10 years now! And every year the group has grown! From loony university friends, to gf/bf, husband and wife. May our group grew even larger (cause we need a baby in our group to get privilege boarding at the Bintan ferry queue).

See you in next year's Chalet! (but KTV still onz whole year round!)

AIBI Elliptical Cross Trainer

If Cordy can't go to the gym, then the gym must come to Cordy! So say me, and we went and got ourselves an AIBI Elliptical Cross Trainer :)

Price History:
Normal Price, S$1200+
Promotion price S$980
Bargained price S$850
Paid in cash final bargain price S$839.

Was it worth it? Too early to say yet, but I did my first trial run on it today, 30 minutes, burned 180 cal. Not too bad for a start. There are 12 training program options, and the machine runs on battery or electricity, and comes with 1 year warranty. It's cheaper then a gym membership, plus I don't have to pay transport cost to go to the gym. I think its a good buy, and the reference link below supports my findings!

The bad part is, I forgot to ensure that the machine is able to take in my weight when calculating my workout :( But no worries, so long as I am sweating, and getting 3 times exercise a weak and burning fats, I'm happy :)

Singapore River Festival

Was at Central today meeting up with friends for our annual chalet planning session, and happen to chance upon the Singapore River Festival in full swing at Clark Quey and Boat Quey. We managed to catch the LEGENDA SINGAPURA: A BUMBOAT EXTRAVAGANZA BY SINGAPORE RIVER CRUISES @ 7pm. The performance, staged at the entrance of Central facing the river, lasted 1 hour, and the highlight to me was the Indonesian dance, as well as the Lion Dance portion. Do drop by before 28th September to catch it. You can refer to the schedule in the reference link below for the timing.

Along the underpass from Clark Quey to Boat Quey, there are also arts exhibition to brighten up your walk. Both side of the river is also decorated with lights, and there was an out door concert playing in front of the Asian Civilization Museum. We didn't manage to catch the concert as we had to hurry home for dinner with my dad. Do drop by to soak in the atmosphere, especially next weekend when the Singapore F1 Night Race will be in session.

Dui's Day Out (Part 3): Geylang Serai

Raya is coming!!! What better way to celebrate it then by going to Geylang Serai! And that's what the Dui's did yesterday. I am ashame to say that in my one decade living in Singapore, this is the first time I actually visited Geylang Serai during the raya festive bazaar!

The Dui's Adventure started out at 12noon at Payar Lebar MRT station. From there we took a short walk to Joo Chiat Road for lunch at Guan Hoe Soon Nyonya Restaurant. We ordered the Curry Fish Head and Hainanese Pork Chop. The rice and tea were free flow, and they do not charge GST or service charges at this place. Plus, there is usually no crowd there as its far away from any main road, and is a family run restaurant.

After lunch at around 3pm, we set out to explore Geylang Serai. It was just hours of walking in street market spread across multiple fields from Geylang Road all the way to Payar Lebar MRT. The streets were decorated with colourful clothings, colourful drinks, and colourful food as show in the photo here. We walked from 3pm - 11pm just exploring the bazaar! And we didn't even cover all the shops at the other side of Geylang Road!

The only misfortune we had on this trip was spending $3.50 on a Malay food call Botok-Botok. When we came across it, it looked so much like Penang Otak-Otak that we just had to try one! After confirming with the seller that it was indeed fish cook in santan (coconut milk), we purchased one to share. What a disappointment it turned out to be. It was nothing like the creamy fragrant Otak-Otak of Penang. It was instead big chunks of fish (with bones!) cooked in coconut husk and un-identified leaves (which doesn't taste a bit like the soft daun kadok in Penang Otak-Otak. Grrrr! For our homesickness for Penang food, we wasted money eating something that was totally weird! So beware all you Penang people visiting Geylang Serai! Don't be fooled by the appearance of the Botok-Botok!

Cafe Cartel Promotion

If you've never tried Cafe Cartel's St Louis Pork Ribs before, now is a good time to give it a try. Cafe Cartel is giving an irresistable promotion, where you can get the a complete meal: ribs, soup, drinks and free flow of bread, for only S$12.80! The ribs are huge! And depending on your luck, sometimes you get soft and tender ribs, sometimes you get hard chewing ribs :P But lucky me, I always get the nice juicy one so far :) If you can't finish the ribs, or if you are a messy eater, then you can ask the staff to 'doggy-bag' up the left-overs for your pet dog at home.

Dui's Day Out (Part 2): Vietnam Exhibition and Lantern Festival

This is the continuation of Dui's Day out part 2.

We started the day at 12:15pm at City Hall, where Dui 1 tricked Dui 2 to go to Comex with her. But at around 2pm or so, we finally made it to the Asian Civilization Museum to enjoy the Vietnam Exhibition. The admission was free, so we save S$8 each, plus there was a free flow of Gardenia raisin muffins, and free Vietnamese Ice Tea! We also saw some cultural performances, mainly singing by Mat Troi Moi Band, and Viewnamese dances which was rather good! We also run around the whole museum looking at some of the wonderful exhibit there. ACM is 100% better then the National Museum of Singapore!

We left the museum around 6pm or so and went looking for dinner towards Chinatown area. While walking pass the Singapore river, we notice some lanterns decorating Clark Quay area, and decided to walk in to explore. What we saw was a Japanese 'Ching-Gay' with Japanese lanterns as show in the photos here. Quite impressive. The Mid-Autumn Festival doesn't start till 31st August, but we manage to catch all the preview lights up on 30th August :)

All in all, it has been a fruitful day!

Paper Craft: Green Collection

After spending too much time cutting out pictures to decorate my bookmarks, I've decided to wise up and pay a little extra for nicer accessories. So on a recent trip back to Malaysia, besides spending some money getting nicer ribbons, I've also ventured into nail arts and craft art accessories.

Photo shown here are some of the new bookmarks with the new and improve flower accessories around it. They look nicer in real life as the flowers glitter in the light :) Plus the green ribbon also have a nice silver eadge to it that makes this collection just glow with a 3D effect!

Singapore Flyer

Cordy and hubby went on the Singapore Flyer yesterday. Hubby manage to get the ticket for only S$10 per person via coorperate sales. Not bad considering they are charging tourist S$29 per person for a 30minutes ride on a ferris wheel! If you are a tourist, and you are reading this, you might want to consider a meal package that includes lunch/dinner at the restaurant below the wheel that includes a free ticket up the flyers. It's around S$39 per person, and hopefully, you'll get a decent meal along with it :)

Anyway here are some of the shots I manage to take with my faithful Nikon camera. You can click on the photo to view it in detail. Even then, the resolution has been shrank to fit into this blog. If you plan to go, and you want to take the night shots, please refer to the sunset timing from the web first, so that you know the exact time to go up the wheel.

Please allow around 10 minutes time to queue and get in as there are security checks as you make your way in. If you would like to get a souvenir photo, then buffer for 15 minutes. If your timing is out and you find yourself inside before sunset time, then there is a toilet after security clearance inside, and you can go in and wait there until the sunset time before proceeding to board the flyer :)

Weekend in JB

Went to JB last weekend with my hubby. Travelled from Bugis to JB taxi stand using the SG-JB taxi that cost us S$10 per person. It was well worth it as the journey took us 2 hours due to heavy traffic jam along the crossway. After that we catch a cab to our hotel for RM10 a trip. Reached the hotel around 8:30pm, and watched the Olympics opening ceremony all the way till past midnight.

We stayed at the Mutiara JB. This was our second stay in the hotel, and we love it cause it's just next to Holiday Plaza with its cheap fast food, hair salons, massage palour, and shopping! This is the view from our hotel room, and I just love it as it gives you the nostalgic 'kampung' lifestyle feel with the KTM train running thru it almost hourly in the morning and evening.

The next day we took a cab to Jusco Tebrau City that cost us RM15 there, and RM16 back. The place was huge! We spend the whole day there, watching two movies in the process: Mummy 3 The Tomb of the Dragon Emperror at 10:45am, costing us only RM8 per person due to early bird special (meaning any movie before 12noon). We watched Meet Dave later on at 3:20pm, costing RM11 per person, which is the normal price. Meet Dave was surprisingly good! And there was some reference to Eddie Murphy's Delirious which I rather like.

All in all, it was a great weekend getaway. Cheap, fun, and relaxing! I know a lot of people avoid JB due to its high crime rate, and dirty environment, but I just love it :)

Southern Ridges and Singapore Night Festival

Being bored in Singapore last Sunday, me and my friend Dui decided to explore the Southern Ridges, one of Singapore's latest attraction with 9km of walking.

We started our journey at 2pm at Harbour Front MRT, coming out of Exit D and towards Marang Trail up Faber Hill. The steps were a killer. Walking pass Jewel Box we reach Henderson Waves the first interesting attraction of our walk. The structure was nice, but not so in the heat of the 2:30pm sun. Continuing towards Telok Blangah Hill Park, and thru the Hilltop Walk which is rather boring, we reach Alexandra Arch, which is also rather boring.

We reach HortPark next and that was just slightly interesting a notch. We got a bit lost trying to find our way towards Kent Ridge Park after that, and totally miss the whole Canopy Walk and well, truth is, the Canopy Walk look rather boring as well. We ended our hiking at Kent Ridge Park and took bus 200 to Holland Village for dinner.

After dinner, we attempted to walk to Orchard from Holland Village, but gave up half way after Farrer Park, and took a bus to Delfi at Orchard. From there we walk all the way to City Hall to take the train home. The Singapore Night Festival was in full swing that night, and we spend more then an hour taking photos of the Art Museum and the National Museum. Really fun! Will upload more photos of those soon.

Verdict : Souther Ridges is utterly boring. Singapore Festival of Light is only interesting for 30 minutes. And I am going to JB this coming weekend :)

Penang Char Koay Teow

Enjoying a slow weekend this week, I decided to attempt making Penang Char Koay Teow, one of my favourite dish from my hometown. So here in the photos are all the ingredients needed for the dish. Note its hard to find the right Koay Teow in Singapore like the ones found in Penang. Same goes for Penang Laksa, its hard to find the right laksa noodles here in Singapore. Anyway, you can also add cockles to the ingredients listed here.

To get the end product as show in the second photo, here is a simplified instruction to cook it all up.

1. Add oil to pan, cook the garlic until fragrant. Add chilli garlic (optional)
2. Add chinese sausages and prawns (might be best to marinate prawn with salt or sugar water before cooking).
3. Add Koay Teow and fry awhile to mop up all the juice from the sausages and prawns.
4. Add sauces. I add light soya sauce and salt water for taste, sweet sauce for colour (should be dark soya sauce, but I didn't have any at home), and fish sauce to make it slightly sweet.
5. Add spring onion and bean sprouts. Cook until fragrant.
6. Open up a small hole among the noodles, and crack in an egg and let it fry awhile.
7. Mix it around the pan until fragrant and you're done :)

Good luck! Don't be stingy on the sauce and salt or you'll end up with a tasteless end product Also, don't be afraid to let the mixture burn a bit in the pan as it adds flavour to the dish :P

Life - Dream = Job

I'm in a Matchbox Twenty and Rob Thomas craze this weekend, and this song reflects what I am going thru today. Enjoy the song, I think it's a beautiful song.

Let it go, let it roll right off your shoulder,
Don't you know, the hardest part is over, let it in,
Let your clarity define you in the end,
You will only just remember how it feels.

Our lives are made, in these small hours, these little wonders
These twisted turns of fate, time falls away,
But these small hours, these small hours, still remain.

Let it slide, let your troubles fall behind you, let it shine,
Till you feel it all around you,
And I don't mind, if it's me you need to turn to, we'll get by,
It's the heart that really matters in the end.

Our lives are made, in these small hours, these little wonders
These twisted turns of fate, time falls away,
But these small hours, these small hours, still remain.
All of my regret, will wash away somehow,
But I cannot forget the way I feel right now.

Origami: 花 Collection

Cordy is in a paper doll making craze this weekend :) She can only make 4 dolls per hour, which means this collection takes her 2 hours! But heck, when you are doing something you like, time flies, and the result sure is satisfying!

湖蝶带走我的梦 - Butterfly Origami

My latest collection of origami card, butterflies! I love butterflies. And it is believed that if you whisper your dreams and wishes to a butterfly, they will fly away into the heavens and convey your message to the big boss upstairs, and your dream might just come true.

It also represents miracles in life. And its one the title of one of my fave songs from David Tao :)

Mobile Street Map

While trying not to get lost going to a training centre yesterday, I downloaded the map of the location to my mobile phone. However, the map did not tell me how to get there, so I google up My hubby suggested instead. And when I went to the website, this logo that says "Streetmap in your pocket" just jumps out at me.

Voila! I now have MapKing 2007 installed on my HTC Touch. It isn't the most wonderful software in the world, and heck, I still don't find it very useful. But its cool to have a map of Singapore in your mobile just to show off :P

おサイフケータイWallet Mobile

Looks like my mobile wish lish is slowing coming true. Today's article on Channel News Asia highlighted that Singapore will be implementing the Wallet Mobile soon, where we can use our mobile to pay for purchases. And it seems that they have already conducted a trial on using mobile for EzLink card payment! I can't wait for all these services to come true! Its soooo cool!

The only downside is, the innitiator is Starhub, and I'm a Singtel subsciber :( The only thing I like about Starhub is cable tv, and the dog in it's advertisement :)

Watching TV on my HTC Touch

As if one of my wish list for my HTC Touch application was answered, I clicked on a link last weekend that says "Watch TV on your pocket PC". And voila! Now I watch BBC news daily on my HTC Touch! And here's the photo to prove it too!

Not only do I get world news (BBC, CNBC, CCTV9 etc), I also get to watch other programs like Comedy TV etc. They even have dedicated channel for different sports! And when I am sick of watching TV, I can also tune into world music! And I do all this using the WiFi connection in my house! Not too bad! Haven't tried it in my office yet.

Ah..... never have I love a phone more then my HTC Touch!

For Mum

Here's another paper craft I made. While making one yesterday for my friend's wedding, my Mum ask for one as well. Since she is leaving Singapore today, I made this one for her. She actually has a few more at home of single kimono girls made into bookmarks. I'm planning to make more designs soon as part of my future retirement supplement income :)

Note: In case you're wondering, the chop at the bottom right corner is my name in Japanese :)
