I'm so happy!!! It's 3 years being Mr & Mrs! :)

On 29 June 2007, I wrote:

It's tomorrow!

We had our rehearsal today.
I'm happy, I'm touched.
I can even cry. You looked so in love.
I am in love with you too.
You are my star.

You know you mean so much to me. 
Just that it got difficult for me when I have to write it in vows.
It became so long.
I will make it short and simple.
But you know what i mean.

I'm nervous about tomorrow though. 
It looks like it's going to rain.
It has been 3 years today. You still mean so much to me and continue to remain my star. I love you.

To more 3 years & 30 years & 50 years. Till we are old and wrinkly. muaks.

This Nike soccer advert is quite interesting. Soccer affects stock markets and everything? It's a good ad - "Write the future"

Makan_10: Boon Tiong Kee Kway Chap

Last Fri, hubby & I had dinner at the Zion Riverside Food centre. After hearing rave reviews from Gav about the duck rice and the 药材 (herbal) soup, I was dying to try the kway chap that caught my eyes when I was there with them.

The food didn't disappoint! Both of us finished everything and shared 3 saucer of chili sauce!

we added salted veggies.

the pig trotters was sooooo good! The meat was tender, sauce was so good ( I dipped my kway chap liao in them too.. esp the egg)

The Tao Huay was so smooth. Realised it was featured in "Makan Lost and Found" (off hand, both of us can't remember where it was lost previously) hmm.. that's not important, all we need to know that it is now at Zion Riverside Food centre now. \(^o^)/ 

eclipse - in my mind

Last week, I took a bus home from work and stopped at the bus stop near Dempsey to take another bus that turns left into my place. I was alone at the bus stop  and it started to drizzle (can't really see the effect in my pix here) and I was thinking to myself, how fitting is this scene for the upcoming "Eclipse". (^o^) 

Imagine the scene, windy and almost cold because the raindrops are beating on your skin. The skies are overcast, forest in the vicinity and it was almost gloomy yet serene. Edward could just walk out from the trees and it would all seems fitting... yes, fitting.

so hun, this post is for you =)

I can see the view from the window

Last 2 weeks at work was pretty busy and fulfilling as I get to strike many things off on my To-Do list.

We cleared a total of 11 laptops and 11 boxes of site equipments! That's 11 HUGE boxes that used to occupy the place next to the windows and piled higher than the printer!

Next on the list- TMF archival to complete. That is a pending to-do for a while now.....


Work seems to be never-ending and I don't seems to have enough time.. sometimes I wonder am I too slow. sigh. Anyhow, will be on course this week - Tues onwards at a place I would not like to step foot in again. And being paranoid and irrational because that's the likely place I was infected at last year at the exact same period as now. And that made hubby and I cancelled our Taiwan trip (insurance claimed) and was quarantined during our anniversay (YEeesS! We will be hitting 3 years in 3 days!) ... and according to the list of participants in the email, I may meet some of the acquaintance from ex companies - not really looking forward to that in a way (but then again, they were really brief acquaintances so may be alright). Let's see.

Makan_10: Margaret Drive -Hokkien Mee

Hubby & I went pak tor yesterday. :) We went to Queenstown Library to collect my books and decided to eat Hokkien Mee at the hawker centre there. Can't believe they will be demolishing it soon. Lucky for us, the demolition was delayed and we are making our way there pretty often to eat the Char Kuey Teow. The CKT is to die for... so many si hum and it's so gooood! yumz.

The hokkien mee is not too bad either, the above portion is $4. I had the $3 portion and there were 5 prawns in it. 5 prawns leh! How many hawker or food court you go to has more than 2 prawns in their hokkien mee??

Anyway after that we went to Orchard and I bought a new iPhone cover. I really like the Hello Kitty and another red cover but it's too ex... and we walked around in Ion and Borders.

Makan_10: Warm seafood Platter

On Mon, hubby & I had lunch with my in-laws and 大哥 who came back for a short visit. We went to Greenwood Ave (@ Bt Timah) and had seafood at Bistro Fish Market.
Yummy swordfish, but I find the mussels so so.. the oysters were great! Lightly baked with cheese, the original flavour is still present.
Great desert- Warm chocolate cake and brownie. A note: to order the warm chocolate cake in the middle of the meal as it takes 25 mins for it to be baked and served.

Karang Guni....

Never knew that cleaning up a workspace is so much fun when everyone chipped in to help! We cleared and packed away boxes of papers, files, CRFs and were quite amazed when we looked at the no. of boxes in the corridor! And as we pushed the empty boxes out of the office on the trolley, I could almost hear myself shout out "Karang Guni! Sway bo chuah, din si gei!" (no TV I know)... hahaha...

They were great! cos I know it would take me hrs to sort and packed these stuffs on my own.
Now it's on to archival and shipping back medical equipments and laptops.  One grouse though, I think my past site workplace is reeeally thorough, cos we would itemize each items sent back to sponsor, with a proper inventory, serial no and it's really neat and efficient. Now, sites and even overseas offices sent us items without any inventory paperwork... ("_"\\\)  ... sigh.. Sponsor really 难做 &  幸苦. But ok lah, I'm sure there are some nice sites & people out there *keeps fingers crossed*

Makan_10: Company's Espresso coffee

Coffee therapy. How simple is that? All it takes for me to feel better today was this cup of espresso coffee. I have been sitting next to the maker for mths and I have not tried either the fancy espresso coffee nor the conventional espresso coffee. I believe the above counts for fancy. They have individual flavored coffee powder in little pre packed capsule.. containers.. whatever... and by inserting it into a slot and pressing a button you get smooth coffee! Whee! Not sure about the rest of the flavors (it's unfortunately not labelled) but my current fave is the gold colored capsule!

damm sianz

The last few days hasn't been going very well for me. Other than my gripes about the weather, I have been tortured by severe back pains (mid spine and lower back) and a nagging flu. The giddiness and finger numbness has been on off and I'm a little worried. Plus, my menses has been 2 weeks late and the hormones are driving me crazy with frustrations and 'bloatedness'. It finally came yesterday.

Anyhow, it's time for me to sleep and I'm still feeling rather awake. The out of sorts feeling is still present and I'm generally damm sianz of everything. It's just me.. hope it will pass and the pain will ease or go away. Tired of it all.
