sat: went to taka and bought a tempur pillow in an attempt to improve my hubby quality of sleep. there's a discount but it's still costly. well, sleep is very important and every minute of good, rested sleep is an extra minute of investment. That applies to me as well, I can't sleep when he's snoring for the cows to return home. haha.
sun: As the pair of God-parent, (the chinese, old fashioned type) we went to witness Lucius being baptised at Blessed Sacrement Church in the afternoon. Both of us were happily snapping and videotaping away and it was a fulfilled moment.
We had buffet dinner at Holiday Inn Hotel; Melting Pot. The food was ok, variety was quite limited as there were no oysters and sashimi and that is no good. The types of cakes, pasteries and dessert was also limited. But I love the beef, potatoes and lamb. Overall it was ok, just not someplace I would want to spend my money at.
mon: I went bersek at Popular buying stationaries and assessment books for my niece and nephew in Perth. well, my in-laws are flying off to Perth for their holidays and it was a mad rush getting all their stuffs in order, what needs to declare, stuffs to pack, so on and so forth.
When we got back at night, I need to check that my mum's stufs are in order as she is going to M'sia on Tuesday morning. At around 9, I sent my mum off in a taxi to my aunt's place and pray that she will have a safe trip. ( I was quite worried because of the highway crash in the news recently). She will be back tomorrow night and with lots of M'sia goodlies (Yay!)
tues: Hubby sent my in-laws to the airport and we drove to Bedok to buy Nonya Ang Ku Kueh and wanted to eat bak chor mee (mince pork noodles). The ang ku kueh was soft, stuffed thickly with green been fillings with a hint of pandan. I like it very much. We didn't get to eat the bak chor mee as the market was already closed. I ate there once and I like how the chilli reminds my of the fish ball noodles in my Primary school. It's like a taste of my childhood and it's a familiar feeling.
later, we had dinner at Botejyu at Liang Court and ate okonomiyaki, pumkin tempura nad fried osyter. (I took pictures but have not uplaoaded them) I was pleasently surprised by the cashier who vounteered that there is a 10% discount for Citibank. Yay! savings!
There were many items not sold from the Hokkaido Fair and many items are now on sale at almost 40% off! I feel so auntie searching for offer items in supermarket hahah. We bought a packet of ramen that was selling at $19.80 (crazy!) during the fair and is now slashed to $5 (almost 70% savings!). can you imagine the cost price of the items? When I saw the lady changing the price of the sign, I grabbed my hubby's arm excitedly! =)
I like to buy items from supermarket, eg cold storage that are close to expiry. That is how I can get to buy expensive, imported items from US, Australia etc at a cheaper price.
2 years ago, after holidaying in Gold Coast, we were hooked on a particular brand of yogurt. It was so thick, so creamy, so rich. We ate this almost everyday in the morning, it cost around $4.50. When we returned home and as usual walking around supermarket, we went to the yogurt section and saw that it cost almost $10 here! Siao ah! That kills our cravings immediately. But the good news is, we managed to get the item at a 50% close to expiry and get to satisfy our cravings.
gosh, I can write so much about food!
wed: went vivo to return my books at San bookshop to get my money back, shopped at Mango, they are having a 50% sale. I'm surprised the people were actually quite respectful when shopping there. there were no pushing nor shoving though it was packed. I didn't buy anything as the tops that I thought were nice were still too ex after the discount. I met a not so nice lady at Espirt, she irritated me as her mannerisms were quite annoying. She used her hanger to ask me to "siam". sigh, anyway, the top ( it's a brown striped polo tee that looks quite ah peh) that I have been eyeing for 4 mths is now on sale. I still didn't buy it. I also saw a red sports jacket that I like. Still thinking.....Cannot anyhow spend money....
thurs: which is today. it looks like it going to rain and we haven't decide what we wanted to do yet.
i'm waiting for my char siew wanton mee.
my hubby is on leave this week and I'm happy to be spending quality time with him. Food wise, I ate Laksa, mutton soup, roti prata and pig organ soup. Let's see what else I crave...

We take the Lord’s presence with us all through the day, blending work and play with prayer. He is our teacher, our philosopher, our companion—our gentle, kind, and very best friend.
God is with us wherever we go. He is in the commonplace, whether we know it or not. “Surely the Lord is in this place,” Jacob said of a most unlikely spot, “and I did not know it” (Gen. 28:16). We may not realize He is close by. We may feel lonely and sad. Our day may seem bleak and dreary without a visible ray of hope—yet He is present.
Amid all the clamor and din of this visible and audible world, listen carefully for God’s quiet voice. Listen to Him in the Bible. Talk to Him frequently in prayer. Look for Him in your circumstances. Seek Him. He is with you wherever you go! — David H. Roper"
This struck me, made me realized that I have, my hubby has and we both have so much to be grateful for and to honor in His words and name in such trying times.
He holds us close, He is present and He listens to us. We are never alone.
He loves us and journey with us with his Love.
