Penguin Meal

I ate a penguin for my birthday. Hee. :)

Thanks Owen, Anmari and Chewy!

The Happiest Month of the Year

A less than impressive dinner at Rochester started the ball rolling. I guess I had too high some expectations for Rochester and it failed to deliver. The watered-down margarita failed to save the day but the Oreo McFlurry did helped up the happiness meter by a good 10 points. Nothing personal against you, my dear companion. It's the venue, not you. Or maybe it would be different experience if I had been on a date?

Pizza, hotdog, chicken wings filled our tummies at Jac's place. Night of dancing and merry making with the girls and Weihao (if only Weihao is a girl, then I won't have to always type "and Weihao") at Butter Factory. Shaoxiang and his girlfriend joined us as well. The theme of the day seemed to be "Gorgeous Shoes and Pretty Dresses".

Dinner at The Hand Burger with Diana, Jac and Joey. I was the only one digging my fingers at the burger while the rest of the patrons used forks and knives. It's called "The HAND Burger", people! Use your hands and savour the crispy veggies and succulent meat.

Another night, Weihao, Jac and I had some splendid Spanish dinner at Serenity located at Vivocity. The spanish omelette, Iberican Ham, paella brought back plenty of memories of Spain. I can't wait to head back there! Later, Joey joined Jac and I at St James for a complimentary bottle of champagne which we wolfed down in no time due to the very hilarious "In-between" card game.

On the actual birth date, Swensens handed over a happy birthday firehouse sundae. Woohoo~ 

On top of that, I got a live birthday song performance all the way from NZ! Guitar, sing-a-long~

Last but not least, dinner with the family and I tucked into my favourite chilli crabs! A surprise penguin birthday cake personally decorated by Owen and Anmari concluded the month-long celebration.

Really now, what better way to start the year than to have a month-long birthday celebration? *beams*

The Memories


Does anyone still remember this?

I think the seed of my love for penguin was planted at a very young age.

Saturday, 23 January 2010


Have a good look at what lies in my fridge now. No, they're not from some secret admirer.

Since I've been reminded time and again that I won't be receiving V-day gift from the non-existent significant other, I've decided to take matters into my own hand (chocolate notwithstanding). Honest! I made these!

Let me hear the applause now!

New York, I Love You

New York, I love you but I don't quite love the stories about you.

I wonder if it's because I miss you dearly, and the sights and sounds remind me so deeply of you and thus, I turn a blind eye to the quirky stories or if it's because if the stories are meant to be quirky, I'd rather they be in French.

But New York, I still love you.


[Jay-Z]
Yeah,
Yeah, Imma up at Brooklyn,
now Im down in Tribeca,
right next to DeNiro,
But i’ll be hood forever,
I’m the new Sinatra,
and since i made it here,
i can make it anywhere,
yeah they love me everywhere,
i used to cop in Harlem,
all of my dominicanos
right there up on broadway,
brought me back to that McDonalds,

took it to my stash spot,
5-60 State street,
catch me in the kitchen like a Simmons whipping Pastry,
cruising down 8th street,
off white lexus,
driving so slow but BK is from Texas,
me I’m up at Bed Stuy,
home of that boy Biggie,
now i live on billboard,
and i brought my boys with me,
say wat up to Ty Ty, still sipping Mai-tai
sitting courtside Knicks and Nets give me high fives,
N-gga i be Spiked out, i can trip a referee,
tell by my attitude that I most definitely from…

[Alicia Keys]
In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
Theres nothing you can’t do,
Now you’re in New York,
these streets will make you feel brand new,
the lights will inspire you,
lets hear it for New York, New York, New York

[Jay-Z]
I made you hot n-gga,
Catch me at the X with OG at a Yankee game,
sh-t i made the yankee hat more famous than a yankee can,
you should know I bleed Blue, but I aint a crip tho,
but i got a gang of n-ggas walking with my clique though,
welcome to the melting pot,
corners where we selling rocks,
afrika bambaataa sh-t,
home of the hip hop,
yellow cap, gypsy cap, dollar cab, holla back,
for foreigners it aint fitted they forgot how to act,
8 million stories out there and their naked,

cities is a pity half of y’all won’t make it,
me i gotta plug Special Ed and i got it made,
If Jeezy’s payin LeBron, I’m paying Dwayne Wade,
3 dice cee-lo
3 card Monte,
labor day parade, rest in peace Bob Marley,
Statue of Liberty, long live the World trade,
long live the king yo,
I’m from the empire state thats…

[Chorus]

Welcome to the bright light..

[Jay-Z]
Lights is blinding,
girls need blinders
so they can step out of bounds quick,
the side lines is blind with casualties,
who sipping life casually, then gradually become worse,
don’t bite the apple Eve,
caught up in the in crowd,
now your in-style,
and in the winter gets cold en vogue with your skin out,
the city of sin is a pity on a whim,
good girls gone bad, the cities filled with them,
Mami took a bus trip and now she got her bust out,
everybody ride her, just like a bus route,
Hail Mary to the city your a Virgin,
and Jesus can’t save you life starts when the church ends,

came here for school, graduated to the high life,
ball players, rap stars, addicted to the limelight,
MDMA got you feeling like a champion,
the city never sleeps better slip you a Ambien

[Chorus]

[Alicia Keys]
One hand in the air for the big city,
Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty,
no place in the World that can compare,
Put your lighters in the air, everybody say yeaaahh
come on, come,
yeah,
[Chorus]

Happy Birthday to Sassy Sissy!


Sissy = My partner in crime in Sydney. :)

I'm surprised we needed no one to post bail for us. The amount of fun we had was criminal!

Stair Master

The Stair Master has been lying dormant for two weeks in the living room. I walked past it and a short circuit went off.

Suddenly, I find myself on it for a good 30 minutes and 45 seconds. Whenever did anyone hear of me exercising?! Okay, shaking the booty at a dance club does count for some sort of exercise, I guess. ;)

875 sets on the Stair Master has left me breathless and feeling all "What the hell just happened? But whatever it was, it felt pretty darn good".

Now, where is that damn ice pack...?



Go on, go on, leave me breathless
Come on...

The daylight's fading slowly
but time with you is standing still
I'm waiting for you only
The slightest touch and I'll feel weak

I cannot lie
From you I cannot hide
I'm losing the will to try
Can't hide it (can't hide it)
Can't fight it (can't fight it)
So...

[chorus]
Go on, go on, come on leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me until I can't deny this
loving feeling, make me long for your kiss
Go on, go on
Yeah, come on...

And if there's no tomorrow
And all we have is here and now
I'm happy just to have you
You're all the love I need somehow

It's like a dream
Although I'm not asleep
I never want to wake up
Don't lose it (don't lose it)
Don't leave me (don't leave me)

repeat [chorus]

And I can't lie
From you I cannot hide
I've lost my will to try
Can't hide it (can't hide it)
Can't fight it (can't fight it)
So...

[chorus]


Go on, go on, come on leave me breathless (leave me breathless)
Go on, go on, come on leave me breathless (leave me breathless)
Go on, go on, come on leave me breathless (leave me breathless)
Go on, go on

Tokyo Yo Yo Yo

Air tickets to Tokyo during Chinese New Year are purchased. Gosh, too early!

The only reason this can be happening is because Chewy had insisted on paying for the tickets first. If not, I will still be telling everyone that I'm going to Tokyo during CNY's and yet, still not have booked my flight tix. Haha!

C: "It's a family trip and everyone had to go!" 

I have not even had a transit flight into Narita before and thus, this would truly be my first visit to Japan. I can feel the bank account bleeding just.about.now.

Who?

I just saw two huge blue-black bruises on my knee. Now, I have to find someone else to rub it for me. Damnit.

I honestly have no idea why they just keep appearing and always on my knees...

The Best Way

E is going to freak out after reading the following line.

"The best way to get over someone is to get under someone". *wink*

The Kind

My driver's licence has finally arrived in the mail. I had to wake up at 10am this morning and stake out at the living room just to wait for Mister Postman.

I imagine someone asking...

Someone: What kind of driver are you?

Wii: The kind you wished you are. *takes the licence in her hand and sashays off*

I Just Haven't Met You Yet by Michael Buble



I'm not surprised
Not everything lasts
I've broken my heart so many times
I stopped keeping track.
Talk myself in,
I talk myself out.
I get all worked up
Then I let myself down.

I tried so very hard not to lose it
I came up with a million excuses
I thought I thought of every possibility

{chorus}
And I know someday that it'll all turn out
You'll make me work so we can work to work it out
And I promise you kid that I'll give so much more than I get
I just haven't met you yet

Mmmmm ....

I might have to wait
I'll never give up
I guess it's half time
And the other half's luck
Wherever you are
Whenever it's right
You come out of nowhere and into my life

And I know that we can be so amazing
And baby your love is gonna change me
And now I can see every possibility

Hmmmmm ....

repeat {chorus}

They say all's fair
And in love and war
But I won't need to fight it
We'll get it by it ??
To be united

And I know that we can be so amazing
And being in your life is gonna change me
And now I can see every single possibility

Hmmm .....

And someday I know it'll all turn out
And I'll work to work it out
Promise you kid I'll give more than I get
Than I get, than I get, than I get!

repeat {chorus}

I just haven't met you yet
Oh promise you kid
To give so much more than I get

I said love love love love love love love .....
I just haven't met you yet
Love love love .....
I just haven't met you yet

Eyes Wide Open

It's god knows what time now and I'm still awake. I really should be asleep and resting my eyes after lasik surgery on Tues but my mind is filled with a million and one thoughts. That's right. I've counted - a million and one.

Perfect Vision For a Mission

Today, my soon-to-be perfect vision will forever serve another mission.

"I don't have perfect eyesight yet, which explains I always fall for the wrong guys. When I get my 6/6 vision after my lasik surgery, I am able to see the guy clearly before I give my heart to him". *big smile*

And the above will be my answer to anyone who asks "Why are you getting lasik done?"
