devils + char siew

cheap eats

been spending too much...gosh ...singapore           is expensive ....the simplest pleasures of watching a film and eating in air con comfort are adding up....its not even 3 star ..and it costs so much..time to save ....

 stumbled         upon the  cheapest meal at work so far....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

char siew + roast pork rice ...all for a grand total of S$2!    the veg at the side is free and so was the bowl of corn + carrot soup! wah! i havent had S$2 anything in ages!

eating with the devil  

speaking about the devil.............i have been anticpating this film for ages....ever since i caught the trailer....   it was entertaining ...but felt like a very chick flick ...[i think i am really getting old here..haha] ......  plot alittle loose [very mean girls], before and after make over wasnt that impressive [that being said, she was pretty to start with]

the whole world wasnt free to watch this with me.....but ms helly [HEYYYY LEEE]  ...mr chua's squeeze was so kind as to watch it with me and her bro ...............stumbled upon the shigeru ban pavillion at SMU for          the      singapore biennale .................       then off for xiao long bao at din tai fong [finally went down to the new HUGE market place at the basement of raffles city ...saw some GOD [so many seasons ago...singapore is so backward at times...and they expect consumers    to be sohisticated when they bring in             designs from the collection like 3 years ago ..tsk tsk ....saw my            New Balance shoes on retail at S$280 [are they mad...its just sneakers...no wonder           Bally is now at least  like S$500 +++]

DJ......................i didnt speak to everyone though.....so i dont know wat hidden talents they must have had ......alot of people were in black though...surprise! haha

i made sure the ice was topped up, the ginger beer and beer was constantly in the tub...i was afterall on the payroll

ate some hammon + cheese ...fab...reminds me of spain....of my dear mu tuo ....with her cheese + ham....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

meeting 02 

i finally went to jo's house .....          after talking about her interior designer....                their concept ..................               and how they switched designers..... a year later i went to see their home.................

very retro....very chic ............very kitsch [i mean it in the nicest way] .................almost like ps cafe...but in even higher drive....brilliant! .............my retro polo tee + me fitted into the tiles perfectly!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

meeting 03 + falling

night time is a very strange thing to my eyes...it always feels unreal................like a movie set .................                  i havent fallen down         in ages....          in the darkenss of the light.. i didnt see the drain and slipped in...........          but u learn to walk on again..          cant remember when i last fell....i use to fall all the time, slipping and everything..........then i recall how the body is so amazing to keep our balance and how we take the simplest things for granted... so much for hammon + champagne ... eat and drink more...cos it is all that we have till we fall over

the longest week ...ever

i am alittle light headed from the loss of wisdom                                           i extracted my last wisdom tooth ever                                                      this has to be the longest week ever

there was swelling, there was blood...                                                  either the dentist is very good or the pain killers are fantastic...              the wound didnt hurt much...                                                             considerably less compared to when i removed my lower ones

as usual i cant sit still...with stiches in my mouth i went to watch the beat that my heart skipped ....i simply love the seats at the picture house...velvet chairs! i want one too!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

i am so gonna get a movie pass membership when i get back to sheffield...

now that i am going to move nearer to the city centre...i will get a weekly dose of art films…

mr chua is finally leaving for yale....spent time with him and his honey ...ms helly [repeat after me... hey leeeeeeee]...first time it was xiao long bao at holland V, then afew days later it was sushi tei at holland V [thank u mrs chua] and drinks at rochester.... rochester reminds me so much of ubud in bali.... mr chua, till we meet again! in NY no less....    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

holland v is like my new home...went there three times in a week [lunch was there on fri....] many memories of the place come to mind when i visit holland v....dates with my exs, my job interview, running away, copywriting for starbucks.....it all adds up.. hopefully to somewhere

did i mention i was working? yes yes..i had stiches in my mouth...walked around with my tooth brush...and brought salt to work to keep my wound disinfected... heres my bear at work

 

 

 

 

 

 

work party this coming fri...tci agm gathering on sat morning...sheffield bbq in the evening...its a weekend to look forward to!

running away 02

after being tour guides for the evening, it was time to be tourists ourselves

 

while my japanese friend was off to the airport, my sis and i were off to tuas....off to KL

 

it is strange to be back here....entering KL, it all seemed familiar         

numerous trips to KL…walking on the streets on new year eve…night markets…filming…sitting under the twin towers…standing on the sky bridge…crazy taxi driver at bangsar…it all started to come back to me

 

infact we stayed in the same hotel as my studio stayed in during our year 01 field trip     

 this time round, the old places have changed …                                                          

chinatown has changed... my luo han guo drink is now served in a cup and is 20 sen more expensive

mid valley used to be so empty…it is so packed and different now

 

walking along the streets, i was wondering if i would bump into a familar face that i have seen in sheffield...

 

from top row:                                                                                            

overlooking chinatown | star hill gallery at BB [i love the new look]                          

dinner at chinatown [claypot chicken rice]                                         

us clubbing                                                                                            

us waiting for ramly burgers [very wong kar wai lighting if you ask me ] and yes that was the bottle of vodka we opened at the club

wondering
i am not calvin
nor am i imran

i am not janice
not am i jonathan

i am not zhenghao
nor am i janita

who i am is not important
what i am to you is

identity is an obession
impressions are the most important?

recalling 02

i forgot that i use to adore her, that i used to be obsessive of her, that she inspired me, motivated me, taught me....i had become indifferent...then i found her again...i should love him as much as i love her...afterall he is her creator...i hope to remember him again...somehow sin's words of me being more buddhist than christian comes to mind..

making | consuming | recalling 01

my grandfather gives me comfort...it is always comforting to take a trip to his grave and visit him....sometimes he appears in my dreams...and sometimes he appears in the mirror...but less often in the mirror nowadays

his grave was very pretty this time round...compared to the last time, this was fantastic...i think its brilliant
