Smurfs came visiting!

La, la, la, la, la, la, sing a happy song
La, la, la, la, la, la, Smurf the whole day long

(whistle) - Smurf along with me
(whistle) - simple as can be

Next time you're feeling blue just let a smile begin
Happy things will come to you so Smurf yourself a grin

(spoken) "Ooh, I hate Smurfs! I'll get you, I'll get all of you, If it's the last thing I'll ever do!"

La, la, la, la, la, la, now you know the tune
La, la, la, la, la, la, you'll be Smurfing soon.

With the launch of Smurf's movie in 3D, the little blue creatures began to capture our hearts all over again, esp so for those born in the 80s. Smurfs kept me company during my childhood amongst many others - like Carebears, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters etc. So, imagine my delight when these creatures came visiting @ Raffles Place!

Aint they adorable?

All adults wanting to snap pictures of the lovely creatures :)

I remembered when I was still mugging for my exams during secondary school days, I'll always listen to Perfect 10 late at night, with Glenn Ong & his misfits! They never fail to amuse me with their jokes and conversations. However, at 1.59am, I'll automatically tune in to YES933, as Desmond's parting song will always be
Try to sleep now, close your eyes
Soon the birds would stop singing
Twinkling stars, are shining bright
They'll be watching you all night

All the things, you enjoy
On this beautiful day
All your friends, all your toys
will be waiting for you to play

Mr. Moonlight will come bring you dreams
As soon as the lights are out
And tomorrow you must tell me
what those dreams were all about"

Try to sleep now, close your eyes
Try to think of tomorrow
All of us wish you good night
So I'm switching off the lights

One more hug, one more smile
Kiss you once, kiss you twice
I'll be here for a while
Try to sleep now and close your eyes

Witty Poems

During GE2011, my FB feed was flooded with lots of information about the opposition parties. In fact, those who supported the govt stuck out like a sore thumb on my news feed. I've also began to read the alternative platforms out of curiosity. After reading for a few months, I can't help but to be amazed by this person, who writes comments poems - funny yet straight-to-the-point. Extracted some for your enjoyment :)

# Curry Saga #
For those Singapore Indians I feel sorry, They got to cook their dishes in a hurry,
PRC neighbours will be back they worry, What a heavy burden they have to carry,
We can only blame that old dictator Harry, Because he let foreigners come in a flurry,
So when come the day old Harry “up lorry”, Singaporeans will rejoice in joy and merry"
# Presidential Elections 2011 #
Dear S’poreans get ready to start, Remember to be wise and smart,
All of you have to do your part, When you look at the election chart,
Tony is the one you have to thwart, And hug Tan jee Say’s loving heart.
# Patrick Tan's Army Stint #

Trying to con us are Tony and his son Patrick, Doing NS the hard way was not the son’s pick,
So to disrupt NS for 12 years was a good trick, Serving as “defence scientist” was his next gimmick,
And PAP’s Mindef came out to defend him so quick, Thinking that we S’poreans are either “Kayu” or brick,
But all their replies are just crap that simply can’t tick, Now Tony Tan must be a man with a skin very thick,
Shamelessly to his presidency plan he continues to stick, Making us Singaporeans want to vomit and feel sick.

Hosted on the Patio

Friday night out, took the train to town & met up with Kenneth dear first before meeting EK & Pris.

I'm so glad to explore new eating places with my friends, who are mostly foodies! This means that they will always be on the lookout of new eating outlets and I just have to tag along, heehee! Guess I've caught on Leecher's leeching bug as well :)

Hosted on the patio, recommended by Pris. The tranquil garden landscaping - lots of greenery and bird cages - makes this place a perfect venue for a garden wedding. They even have a live band, which takes in song dedications.

Early bird catches the worm! We were just in time for happy hours and went ahead to order 1-for-1 beer without EK, lol!

Started with Swiss brown mushroom - oven baked swiss brown mushroom, lovingly filled with a delightful capsicum relish and herb crust.

Bite-sized snapper fillets dipped in beer batter and fried to a golden brown hue, served with fries and tartar sauce.

Fried chicken wings with their special chili dip.

EK & Pris turned up just when food is being served, heehee, perfect timing! We ordered several main dishes for sharing.

Succulent sea tiger prawns, roasted cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs with spaghetti aglio olio style.

Grilled angus beef tenderloin on roasted herb potato and porchini red wine sauce.

Pan roasted Barramundi on olive and bean ragout, grilled asparagus and vanilla bean oil

Wood-smoked french duck breast, nestled amongst asparagus and mushrooms with linguine pasta. All tied together with fragrant rose sauce.

Cheers & start digging in!

As usual, girls always have a separate stomach with it comes to desserts and especially when it concerns chocolate!

Molten dark chocolate fondant - velvety, rich, warm chocolate fondant accompanied with vanilla bean ice cream, yummy~

Smooth, cream cheese cake swirled with chocolate and set on a buttery wafer base and strawberry cake topped with berry sauce.

Generally, a good place to chill out with friends over a few drinks, away from the hustles of the city.

Baby Kayden's Full Month Party

Guess where I'm heading?

Baby Kayden's 1st month party!

Gosh, he has grown so big, compared to my last visit @ the hospital.

Proud parents, Siewhui & Alvin. Congrats! Waiting for more good news, heehee :)

With the pretty mama :)

Leecher trying to carry baby Kayden. Surprisingly, baby Kayden was very co-operative and didn't cry when he was being passed from one person to another.

Do you think he looked bored?

He fell asleep when I carried him, lol! Guess he must be very sleepy after staying awake for almost the whole day.

Rebecca came along as well.

Happy 1st month, baby Kayden! May your life be filled with love & happiness :)

Arrival of Baby Kayden

Siewhui texted me to inform us of baby Kayden's arrival! We were so happy for her & visited her together with Xiaoqiang @ the hospital.

He's so tiny & adorable :) Perhaps our voices woke him up and he was feeling grouchy, lol! He kept crying and we had to leave him in the hands of his granny.

BKK Biz Trip Jan 2011 P4

Time for breakfast again!

Since young, mummy dearest always make sure that we eat our breakfast. Even if we were running late for lessons during schooling days, she will pack our breakfast and made us eat it on the way to school. Till now, be it staying on my own or going on business trips, I'll try to make an effort to wake up earlier to eat breakfast.

With the fave travelling partner :)

Took a peak at the hotel's swimming pool. Aw, I wished I'm here on vacation instead of working. Lying by the poolside with a glass of cocktail, woohoo! But then again, doubt I'll stay in 4-stars hotel when I'm travelling on my own, heehee! Rather save the money for more shopping :)

We had some personal time, as our flight was at 9pm~ Tried to change our flight to an earlier timing but no avail. Thus, we went to MBK. I always hear my friends talking about MBK & finally, I have a chance to see it on my own! This centre was named after the parents of the developer Sirichai Bulakul, Mah and Boonkrong, whose statues grace the ground floor.

Bangkok traffic is a shocker., it can take 20 mins to move 1km and it gets worse during peak hours.

Guess who we met in BKK? Tom Cruise ~ Madame Tussauds recently opened in Bangkok, so this was part of their roadshow. The 500-million baht attraction is the tenth Madame Tussauds to open worldwide, third in Asia joining sister attractions in Hong Kong and Shanghai, and first in South East Asia.

Late lunch/early dinner @ Coffee & Cream, a roadside stall before we made our way back to the hotel to pick up our luggages.

Time to head to the airport & home ~
