Merry Kurismasu~

I can't believe I'm actually blogging on Christmas day. But anyhow Boyf is still sleeping. So.. Here I am!
We're heading out later to Sentosa, let's see if by then I would have soaked any Christmas spirit up (Since Christmas seems almost non-existent this year....)

Look what I came home to when I came back from Taiwan! ♥

I dyed my hair golden (In the shade - can't really tell how bright it is....) for a couple of days and it was horrible.
People regarded me as an Ah Lian. I have sinced changed it to a shade of Ash Brown. Which I love.

Christmas cookies from Ah Hui who is also known as my bestie. I ate all but 3 pieces and my dad gobbled up the rest. Thank you love!

We went to Wild Honey to eat on Thursday. If you haven't heard about Wild Honey, you've probably been living under a rock. From its' website:

"Wild Honey is all about beautiful breakfast. All day, everyday. Located at Mandarin Gallery, Orchard Road, Singapore.
333A Mandarin Gallery #03-02 Orchard Road
Singapore, Singapore, 238897"

The place is like a little space outta Singapore. Kinda country, kinda cozy. Me likey.

We had the English Breakfast & Egg Benedict. The poached eggs & scrambled eggs & mushrooms are my absolute favourites now.
The bill came to around $47 for two of us - but servings were absolutely fufilling, staff was great - I am definately going back for the Pancakes next.

And Orchard is now bathed in Christmas lights as per every year's tradition. But I just don't like squishing with crowds nowadays..

Enjoy Christmas, everyone! xo

I'm back in Singapore after 6 days of Taiwan and the excitment of being home is finally wearing off and now I'm feeling homesick about Taipei and feeling sick about going back to work.

The worst things that could happen already happened on this trip:
  • Getting a 38.4 degree fever on the day of my flight to Taiwan? - Check.
  • Getting diarrhea right after my fever subsided? - Check.
  • Getting my period once I stepped foot in Taiwan? - Check.
  • Continously having diarrhea for 6 days and it miraculously healing on the day my flight leaves for Singapore? - Check.
  • Bag strap spilting on me? - Check.
  • Shoe soles wearing out on me? - Check.
Wow. Don't think I can be any luckier, could I? Anyhow, even though these things happened, the trip was still a fruitful one. I can't get enough of holidays now - I NEED to go overseas next year and I WILL make it happen!

Okkkkk. 'Nuff with words, let's see some pictures! More pictures are available on Facebook (Part I, Part II)

We arrived at Taoyuan Airport 12 midnight with nothing open. I haven't seen an airport THIS scarce in my entire life. (Not that I've seen much airports.. But still!!)
We stayed like vagrants until 7am with dying backs and cumbered to our hotel to drop off our luggages (Checkin was only at 3pm. Imagine that.)
We then decided to sightsee around, starting off with Taipei 101... Which 3/4 of the stores were not open by 9am.

Miramar Entertainment Park - Not bad a shopping District, 3/4 shopping centres within 2 minutes of each other, and with a Ferris Wheel & Merry Go Round on the 5th floor (of Miramar)

Ferris wheels rides are 200NT a person, 150NT for kids. Rides are (aprox?) 15 - 20 minutes, you get a view of the surrounding district (And Taipei 101!)

Taipei Zoo! We didn't manage to see the whole zoo though, Boyf's mom's leg was acting up... Pffft :(
I wanted to see the penguins!
Boyf has a mask on because the air in Taiwan was affecting his nose. (Whatever that means)

Sogo! Mainly went for the sake of going, actually.

Zhong Shan Guo Zhong - The MRT nearest to our hotel. (A 5 - 10 minutes walk)
The hotel we stayed at was Regal Executive Suites - Hotel was abit old but had all the necessities.
It was near to the MRT, had a 7-11 within walking distance, and a whole street of food nearby. Not bad!

On the MRT to Dan Shui. We were probably crazy to go there on one of the coldest day of the week.

Obligatory emo shot.

Ice-cream in 13 degrees weather by the seaside - SHIOK. (Couldn't feel my nose after the ice-cream. HAHA.)

No regrets for going though - Touristy spot with loads of renowned food and whatnots.

Christmas Decorations at Danshui :)

And back to Singapore via transit in Hong Kong. GUESS WHO SNATCHED GOT THE WINDOW SEAT!!

HI SINGAPORE! (Though I'm not feeling so happy about being home now. Pffft.)

Well, home sweet home... I guess. Back to work tomorrow. SUCKS!!!!! :(

Somehow, manual focus has become my favourite thing to use.
I'm still a noob with my DSLR, so I'm still learning everyday about its' functions.

Some waaay backdated photos I thought I should upload, just to make this place a lil livelier..
iLights @ Marina Bay - Some interesting lights exhibits by various artists, glad we went to take a look!
Like I said, waaaay backdated though, so by the time you see this - Exhibition's already over.

A nightview of Singapore: Whoever was it that said Singapore doesn't have a decent night view?

My current shopping obsessions: Rings, rings, & more rings.

Do you ever feel like sometimes, people are only good to you because they want something from you?
Like people want to know you only because you have something they find useful?
I find myself doubting people, especially after Boyf's words. He says, I shouldn't be as trusting as I am.
Hmm. Sometimes I feel like it's a world where everyone is just making use of another.
Humans.. We are ugly sometimes.

Some shots taken not by me but with my camera. A Malaysian cousin dropped by to visit, Mom & me tagged along when her friend brought her around to really uninteresting places
We made awkward conversation.

I should be happy because next week is payday but I am not because I am $650 poorer.
Thinking of a short getaway since there's a long weekend 2 weeks later... :)

Best friends

Because with them, I can be whoever I wanna be, and they won't judge.
Simple dinner and supper and wine and silly photos and talking till 3am.. Nothing beats that. Love you guys!

P/s: Happy 21st baby, love you deep deep :)
