A place to let me write and help me to remember things that I will otherwise forget. A place to reflect at what I have done so far. A place for family and friends to know what have I done all this time.
Ohye... It is the end of the month le. Dah ambil gaji? I already spent most of mine. Yikes. No la, just kidding.
Anyways, I just satisfy another one of my many many cravings. Beef ribs.
It is a huge portion and I was so darn full after that. Add a bit of tabasco sauce to the beef before putting it in your mouth - it adds to the kick-ness of the beef. Then put in another mouth of beef with a dollop of mashed potatoes. Ahh... heaven~
Hehe... What's next on the craving list? Hmmm... Pork ribs? ;D
After I posted this, I realised that I should have taken the pic of the nails today instead because I added another layer of the nail polish last night so it is a lot more glittery today.
I have not been putting on nail polish for some time...because I was too lazy wanted to let the nails rest for a bit. Then, two nights ago, I had the need to paint my nails but I dun like any of the nail polish I have except this glittery one. So...that's how I ended up with my glittery nails.
Alright.. uploaded today's nails. ok...Not much difference. Hahaha...
One fine lunch... I saw the sign at the already-closed-during-lunch-time stall.. It basically advertising the 'Mixed Pork Mee Sua cooked in Red Wine plus Egg'
I am super interested to try. :p
So, one early morning, I went to order it. Migosh... a lot of calories (i think) and very nutritious lo. Took me about half an hour to finish it. Because it is a soup dish...and it is hot so...I think I will order this again...without the egg.... if I ever going for an early breakfast or not in a hurry to go elsewhere after breakfast.
Bought a pair of Crocs Leigh Flat during the Sg Trip...
Reason for the flats is because my sport shoes is beginning to deteriorate...I was planning to get a pair of sneakers or another pair of sport shoes. Instead, I bought Crocs. Hehe... I love the vibrant turquoise colour and it is quite comfortable. Unfortunately, what seems to be a just nice loose fitting shoes has now become a too-loose pair of shoes. It keeps slipping off my foot. Urgh...
We had an early night off and woke up early...too early for any restaurant to be fully opened...And so, we bought tidbits to eat first.
I had the Pork Asparagus when I visited Singapore way back in August 2007. Hehe... Bak Kua Delight - the bun - Can we have this in Miri? Opps...Sorry. Bak Kua is pork.
Not more than an hour later, we lunched! We shared the Mango Salad - Unripen Mango... Yum. I am salivating by just thinking of it. The Seafood Tom Yam with Glass Noodle is yummy... It's clear tom yam soup btw. Then, because we used Citibank credit card to pay, we were given a freebie - Prawn Toast~ Err.. A bit too oily and I think it has chinese celery in it. Yuck...
After lunch, we went on two separate groups - Elaine and I coupled together and started our shopping frenzy at Orchard Road. After three shopping malls and an hour left to dinner, we were hungry... and so, we couldnt stand the temptation so we had our tea break without the tea.
It wasn't a long way to the dinner place that we already decided to go but we stopped by at the hotel to drop our shopping and rest for a few minutes...
We shouldnt have taken our tea break.Full~!! Dinner was at Fish & Co. Elaine and I shared the Mussels and the Fish & Chips. The Fish & Chips is infused with cheese in it... yummy... Hehe...
Day 3 - My aunt has come over to bring Elaine and I around... She even tapao-ed hawker food as our brunch. Don't play play, these are yummy food le..
Because I wanted to see the Merlion... we travelled quite a far distance just to reach there. Super hot weather. Along the way, we also saw a bit of Smurf attraction. Smurfs on a mini football field~! I can recognise a few Smurf characters...
Then, we went to shop at Bugis area. I purchased quite a few of stuff... we happened to stumble upon really good deal at G2000 - the work top I bought is only $29 and since I bought 3 pieces, there is an additional discount of 15%. Super worth!!
Food is something that we cannot not have... All the good food. Haha....
Aunty had to left us early so we headed back to our hotel to sleep. Yes, to sleep. It was the wrong move to go see the Merlion in the afternoon. My migraine kills all my mood... plus our purse is really bleeding too much. So, sleeping is the best option. Hehe...
For dinner, we wanted to eat chicken rice but it wasnt open so we ended up the food court instead.
Day 4 - time to go back to Miri. Packed everything and then brunch at the airport.
Ladies and gentlemen, behold. My shopping loot.
That's... a pair of Crocs, one pair of socks, a pair of short pants, 1 jacket, 5 tops, 1 top for mum, 1 shirt for dad, 4 handbags, and sweets.
I was feeling a bit hesitant to go on a holiday after the Taiwan and KL Trip. Erm.. Haha.. But, yes, I booked my ticket and went on this latest trip, Singapore. This trip is all about food and ...shopping.
We used the Airasia direct flight from Miri to Singapore...and nearly missed our flight. Haha... We got into the departure hall quite late and immediately queued in the line when we heard our names being called out on the speaker. Oh mien! We were totally late... everyone else has gone into the plane. We were queueing for the KL flight. yikes!
And so... we made it safely to Singapore...After dumping our luggage at the hotel, I went off with my aunt... who brought me to eat Indonesian food at Lucky Plaza - Ayam Penyet.
We also ordered the Asam Soup and also the Gado-gado. The ayam penyet is actually something like our Miri Nasi Lalapan but the chili paste is 'power'! It has this crispy flakes which I have no idea what is it and it is so yummy!! It is so spicy but you cant stop eating it. The soup is sour and very appetising. Slurp! slurp! slurp!...and the gado-gado is so yummy too! I love!!
Off to a good start... lol. After lunch, we went to Bugis area..where I took pic of the Smurfs deco...erm.. not planning to show it cos it is quite small. A bit anti-climatic really. I also had a cone of Black Sesame ice cream..Regret. Cos it gets a bit yucky after a few licks. Anyways... we shopped at the Bugis Street Market. I bought 3 tops (2 for myself and 1 for mum) at a bargain (if you compare it to the price in Miri la). Then wandered across the Bugis Village (i think)...and dropped by for Dimsum!
It was just an ok-dimsum. Probably because we were not hungry. Btw, the uncle has joined us after the shopping at Bugis Street Market. So the three of us had the dimsum together. But the sharing is more like half for me and half for the two of them. -.-| I ate so much!! P/s: no money was spent on food yet. All treated by my dear aunty~
Err... Dinner was at Marche, Somerset. Met up with Jac who treated me dinner. Tasted a few chunkful of Sonia's Ham & Cheese Crepe, forkful of Elaine's Caesar's Salad, shared the Veal Sausage, Roasted Potato and the desseret - Choco Crepe with Strawberries and Chocolate Ice cream... oh! Yummy!! P/S: the strawberries are so deceiving... sour la. should have ordered the mango instead. But the chocolate ice cream is to die for. It is so gooood!
After the dinner... more window shopping. We retired early cos for some reasons, we all didnt have a good sleep the night before. Hehe...
I know I have been missing in action for a long long time.. time to restart..new resolution. I shall try to be more active. :p
Anyways... The poison of the night - Buah pinang aka betel nut. Ermm.. the pic is of the skin only la.. the nut already eaten. My first try of the nut. My tongue went numb from the bitterness and then it got really fun to chew at. I had difficulty swallowing it because of the dryness.
