Back in Action

Hi, I was MIA for 5 months now.
A lot of things have happened within these 5 months.

I was back to Indonesia for 2 months instead of the initial one month plan :p
Can't have enough of Indo food, quality time with parents and catching up with long lost friends.

Came back to SG for a week then off to Jakarta to attend a friend's wedding.
It was lovely to witness the special moment of them.

Was in Taiwan for the annual family trip for a week.

Last but not least, I am engaged!!!!!
I am currently busy preparing for the wedding.
Have just confirmed the date, it will be mid of 2012.

That's all for now. I will blog more about the Taiwan trip and wedding preparation.

My Farewell

I have finally decided to quit my full time job after 5 years working in the same company.
It was a really tough decision.
Have been considering it for a while
and I am glad that I have support from my family and friends.

Had farewell dinner at Aquamarine, Marina Mandarin Hotel last Thursday.

A bit disappointed with the seafood there.
They were not as fresh as those in The Line, Shangri-La Hotel
and Carousel, Royal Plaza.
The oysters were good, though. I am a huge fan of oysters :p

The Sashimi section.
It was ok, but not that fantastic.

The desserts were nice. There are a lot of varieties and durian penget was delicious :)

Although I personally prefer the durian paste at Ellenborough Market Cafe at Swissotel.

Chinese New Year 2011

This is a very outdated post when I went back home for CNY.
Miss my parents, my friends and the food there.

Food from our must visit restaurant.
I love love love the white kway teow and the crispy Ee Fu noodles.
Can't find this type of crispy Ee Fu noodles elsewhere.

Dinner at Jimbaran, a Balinese cuisine restaurant.
We like the ambiance and the food is really good.

CNY eve celebration with my granny, my family and my uncle's family at Taipan,
a fine dining Chinese restaurant under Tung Lok Group.

Lunch on CNY day at a local restaurant.
We used to visit this restaurant at least once a month when we were young.

Life is Unpredictable

These few days have been a bad and depressing days for me.
Woke up to bad news for three days in a row.
A friend met with an accident, a relative died of heart attack and
a friend and his wife were shot dead.

We never know what will happen next. Embrace each and everyday,
do our best, live and die without regrets.

Had a great time with my girls for the whole week.
They are my long lost friends, whom I haven't seen for more than 10 years.

Kind of surprised with their last minute arrangement for a meet up in Singapore.

We had nice catchup sessions and it didn't feel like we haven't met for such a long time.
It will be great if all of us stay in the same city.
Unfortunately, we don't. We have promised to have more frequent meetups

Friendship is like wine. It gets better as it grows older.
Right next door, or miles apart, friends are always close at heart.

Weekend Getaway

Backtrack a lil bit to the weekend getaway to KL three weeks ago.

We were there for the Jay Chou's concert.
Stayed in Empire Hotel Subang this round.
It is a nice and cozy hotel, with a shopping mall located just next door.

Hotel entrance from the shopping mall

The lobby

Like the spacious living area so much

Reached KL quite late that night, and not many choices for the dinner then.
Decided to try the Balinese cuisine at Ole Ole Bali restaurant nearby
and it turned out to be very good.

Love the ambiance and the service is really good. It is definitely worth the money.

Kambing Bumbu: stir fried lamb cutlet with chili and spices

The left dish is Balinese Salad with Grilled Squid

Grass Jelly with Rambutan


Quick lunch at Pasta Zanmai in the Empire Shopping Gallery.
Ordered the mini set with the noodle and rice, but the portion is huge in spite of the name :p

Can't remember the exact name, it is a kimchi ramen with oyster :p

Tori karaage with garlic fried rice


Jay Chou's concert at the Putra Stadium in the evening.
Had heaps of fun even though it was our second time watching it.

So glad that Lara was one of the guest performers.
Her live performance was good.
Love it when she sang the duet song, Coral Sea, with Jay Chou
and a song from her debut solo album, Hallo Lara.

Decisions, Decisions

Have just made another major decision yesterday.
Hope that this is the right choice.

New Chapter

I've just made a tough decision after considering it for long.
However, I am glad that I did it.

I am going to start a new chapter of my life soon.
May the road ahead of mine be smooth.

Glad that I have so many people supporting my decision.
Thanks to my family and friends for the encouragement.

Jay Chou

I am soooo excited.
Get a free ticket to Jay Chou <The Era> World Tour Live in Malaysia for this weekend.
Just got the leave approved and the flight tickets to KL booked.

This is going to be the forth time for me watching Jay Chou's concert.
His last concert was impressive,
with the LED screens design stage and the 3D animations.

Have a very high expectation this round.
