Been having alot of weird dreams lately.
Weird as in, it felt like those dreams were bringing me back to the past, when I was young.

Supposed to be considered as happy dreams but it makes me sad by thinking back on like how such activities might not happen again.

I had only remembered some of the dreams. I knew there were more but I really couldn't recall.

Nevertheless, continue reading if you are interested. Though I must say it's pretty senseless and boring to you guys.

Wanted to brush them off but decided to just do up a post, just in case all those 'childhood' dreams meant something? A year later or so?
Because, I kept having dreams that are actually telling me something, or sometimes, it is something that I can relate to in the future.
Then, I can reference back since I no longer keep a diary.

Few days back, I had dreams of having breakfast with my WHOLE family, just my family. No BFs.
At this huge market hawker centre.
(Not that I don't welcome my bf or my sister's bf because of course, the more the merrier.)

The dream just makes me feel like it is bringing me back to when I was a child.
When I used to sleep early, waking up early for breakfast with all my family member present on a beautiful Sunday morning.

Another dream was something involving my grandma house, my grandma, my mum, myself, staying over at grandma's place, etc. Can't remember the details.

Now that grandma is gone, and the place will be sold soon (I think because my uncle had bought a new place at Seng Kang or Hougang, can't remember), I am feeling very upset.
Such memories.

That dream also seemed to be like during my primary school moments when there was a period whereby we (my mum, sisters and myself) used to go to my grandma place.
Grandma cooked for us when we sometimes stayed over. Early morning breakfast, etc.

Another involved with some of my friends. And we were going Thailand (huh?) for some choir event.
So it seemed that this dream somehow brings back to my secondary school days?
Strange thing was that I only dreamt of 4 of my friends (YL, Quek and Claud), and Claud arent even in choir!

We were even eating rojak before our flight at this food centre.
HMMM. Ok I forgot the rest of the details! Happened few nights back. =(

And finally, just last night, I dreamt of sleepovers with my maternal cousins, in an attic.

Strangely, it felt like we were kids because in that dream, my eldest cousin, Yu Rui arent married yet.

We were playing masak-masak but we were all in our 'now' form. As in like young adults, not as a child.


As much as I would like to say that they are beautiful dreams, I've been waking up feeling very exhausted and feeling really weird.
Sad even, I don't know why.

Oh well.

Seriously WHAT THE HELL?

You complained that you are poor and my dad, being a good elder brother gives you money.
$1 also can't pay. HUH?
But why do I see iPhone and a freaking Windows 7 phone? Oh yes, you drive a car too.
And I wonder what other luxuries.. maybe frequent indulgence of good food since your family looked very well-fed?
Nice. Very nice.

Hate Myself (Sometimes)

I need to stop being so careless because I nearly killed Truffle the other day.

The place was actually smoky and she could have died from suffocation if we happened to stay out longer
AND if I hadn't remembered that I had left the fire food cooking.

Can't imagine what would have happened if Truffle died because of me. =(

PS// My place still has the strong smoky smell as a reminder of how retarded I can get.

Tiamo II

Missed out on this night-out entry with one of my favourite girl, Sophieeee!!

Usually, we will meet to go for a mala indulgence because BF is so anti other places,
This time it's different!

Managed to convince BF for a pasta night.
And after reading some blog reviews on where's good at Lygon,


Sadly, realised we went to Tiamo II instead of the original Tiamo.
They are just next door! & we went in to the first one that we saw.

Nevertheless, it was the best pasta so far that I've tried at Lygon.
Just Lygon.

Apparently, Lygon is too over-rated for having good pizza and pastas just because they are known as "Little Italy".

Previously, the other places that we've tried arent that good. Especially the last one that I went!
Sadly I forgot the name of that place. ARGH.
Atmosphere - check.
Italians - check.
Crowd - check.
Yet, my order with BF was different - one was white wine vongole and the other one was cream pasta)
and ours tasted similar!
I wished I had remembered the name of the place to serve as a warning to people who happened to stumble onto my blog while searching for "Lygon good pizza or pasta restaurants"

Papa Gino was the other one that I've tried. Apparently the pizza is good which we (or rather BF&I) tried only the garlic pizza. AWWWW.

Can't say much for the main dish though. But I guess the good garlic pizza is an indicative judgement on the quality of their other pizzas!

Regardless, Sophie had tried and said that it's good!

OK soooooo
Tiamo II was not tooo bad!

I ordered the TORTELLINI TARTUFO (Ricotta filled tortellini with cream, mushroom & truffle)
Don't expect visible truffle for that price. But pretty not bad! The pasta arent soggy.
I wished they give fresh Parmesan instead of the dried ones.

BF's and Sophie's pizzas were pretty decent!

Harvey's RISOTTO NERO (Rice with cuttlefish ink & thinly sliced cuttlefish) had strong squidy taste which I love!
And they agreed that it was nice too.

Disappointment >>>> Desserts
Despite raves on how good their Tiramisu was.

Initially, my few bites was pretty okkkk and I think that was the middle
BECAUSE when I ate the other side, IT'S SO DRY!

The nutella pizza? Don't get be started.
I licked off the nutella, ate the supermarket icecream and threw away the crust. Left the badly whipped whipped-cream behind too.
'nuff said.

Unsatisfied, we went to Koko Black! (HEHEHEHEHE)
My dessert compartment seemed to be like some kind of overblown pouch.

Forgot to take photos of the dessert but really, hot chocolate looked alike. So no point, right? I had a skinny hot chocolate (HAHAHA, TRYING TO EASE MY GUILT EVEN THO I KNOW IT DOESNT HELP MUCH) and Sophie had her Iced-Chocolate.
Girls can never have enough of sweet treats!

Oh yea, why not Ganache?
We finished our dinner damn late!!! And they closes at 10pm. SADDDDD. Ok, that's beside the point.

Koko Black is my other favourite hot choc place anyway.

And photos taken at Kokoblack!


LOL at BF's expression.
We were trying to capture some nice shot of something like that:


Original photo is with Sophie though.

And yesssss. A photo with her!
PLUS we were wearing a somewhat similar style!


Another photo!!!
Closer take, just in case you can't see.
(HAHA, excuses to post up another photo of us.)



PS// Sosososososossooo excited for our June-July roadtrip! WHEEEEEE.


Why are there so many "PAP YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE" rumours spreading around huhhhh?
About them being a sore loser?

Straits Times, yes, govt controlled newspaper. Very likely to be a propaganda for Singaporean citizens.
Soooooo, everybody's turning to TheOnlineCitizen for the so-called reliable news.

Yes, some are true but NOT ALL.

Really wished that people could get their facts right before spreading those rumours.

and no, I did not just read from there but had the facts backed by friends and strangers who said it's A BULL-EFFING-SHIT.

Wah lao eh. Seriously guys? I'm sure this GE2011 is a wake-up call for the PAPs, seeing so many people getting so pissed off with them. Who in the right mind will still want to aggravate the citizens further and doing all these childish stuff?

I know some of the policies that were passed previously had done damaged to some. Like the sudden influx of foreigners for example.
But can everybody stop having the hate-PAP mindset and believe every single shit that has been spreading around?
Unless the news came from a WP member about how PAP disagree with them on some VALID issues.

Really please get the facts right. =(

Lastest I heard about residents can only meet the WP members at the void decks.
But why the news does not telly to the rumours?

Straits Times lied?
Cannot be because the WP can make noise if the reported news is a not true!! How much Straits Times want to be a govt-loving newspaper, but such news cannot lie, right?


Really urge everybody to see what happens in 5 years time. Think rationally. And changes dont just happen overnight. Weigh the pros and cons to every action being carried out ok?

PS// As much as I'm upset over the loss of George Yeo (yes, he's getting overpaid) but he has been doing his part too that residents who seeked for his help love him! (yes, the salary is not comparable to what he had been doing), I'm happy that the WP won because at least they can "keep an eye" on the govt.

I'm a very hospitable girl.


'nuff said.

Random Thoughts

I know how I should convince my interviewer if I ever apply for a nutritionist (hopefully dietetics) position in Australia!

"Look around you. So many fat Aussies so obviously you guys fail!"

And of course I will tell them that with a

Had always wanted to try the Cadbury Creme Egg even though I'm not exactly fond of Cadbury. (Tasted like cheap chocolate imo. My calories intake is precious! Therefore I need to pick what should or should not allow to enter my mouth!)

But see!

More at the Creme Egg Goo Tube.

I dont know why but the advertisement makes me drggggoooool.
Love how they made it looook so gooey. YUM!

Since last year when I had laid my eyes on one of these eggs, I knew I just had to try them one day.
As I am a very indecisive girl, it was only this year, after BF constant "Just buy lahhh" that I decided to get one.
Even made a pact to eat that as a study motivational treat.

Which means, I've been slacking for a week. HEEEHEEEHEEEHEE.
And also, it's when Easter was over = the price dropped by half.
Ok ok, that's beside the point.

Some photos of my Creme Egg adventure! (LOL)


AND huhhhh, They lied.


It's not gooey!
(Ok, also probably because it's pretty cold here >>> the goo has solidified)
(& yes, I DO NOT keep my chocolates in the fridge and it is still not gooey.)

So, I've decided to microwave it for about 7 seconds to make it gooey for consumption.



Another photo! With an emphasis on the yolk!


And my verdict? I won't buy them again.
Too sweet for my liking. Not a big fan of the white fondant that they used for the inside. PLUS! In case you have got no idea, I'm not a candy girl despite the fact that I've got a sweet tooth.
Still, I had a fun time eating it and kept asking BF if he wants to try. (✿´ ψψ `)

Char Siew Sou 叉烧酥 - My Version



Beta testing (HAHAHA)
Will do the correct shape next time!

Apartments in Australia are relatively cheaper.

Most of the houses and apartments in Australia (well, maybe just Melbourne?) are like modernized Kampongs.
They are all made out of wood structure.
Hollow - when I knock on my walls.

No wonder it's so much cheaper lah. Less than a year and the interior has ceilings that seemed to be falling apart. Not to mention, the place is vibrate-able. Ceilings vibrates even when your feet landed slightly harder. And do I have to mention what happened when I use my washing machine? Despite the fact that I got one with DD motor (Less noise, less vibration).

Feel so safe.

PS// My previous more 'expensive' apartment that was situated near the city is the same.

To celebrate the end of GE2011....

Expensive french wine!
Kindly sponsored by Addison. (・ー ・)

Ok, actually it was not intended to be a celebration for the GE2011 since dinner was before the results were announced.
He just wanted to share with us the wine thus this dinner. So sweet of him! (ヘ ベ✿)

Wanted to have some yummy steak at

Had reserved a table there but because of the stupid jam, we were late!
Then they gave out our table to other people. (◡⋂ ◡)

Should have headed out earlier or given them a call.. but was upset that they claimed to call us when it's clear that they didn't!
Nevertheless, the attendant was apologetic so will probably try there one day!

Everywhere was fully booked due to Mother's day which was the following day..
So we can't try anywhere else new!
Went back to this 'regular' Japanese restaurant that BF & I used to go when we stayed nearer to the city.

Still, it was a yummy Japanese dinner!

PS// In case you are wondering why there is no dessert. So not me right?! I was too anxious to gobble them up and just realised that I did not snap any photo! Had their daifuku, which was awesome! Esp with their matcha ice-cream. Have not tasted any other nicer daifuku (Didn't try when I was in Japan though) The rest are way too sweet so I love Yamato's daifuku!
And *eh hmm* second round of dessert at Ganache. *eh hmm*

My Little Note on GE2011


That's precisely MY point on why I said many opposition party has the STYLE but NO feasible plans.

It's not just to BRING UP THE FAULTS, just to 'sway' the voters to support them,
or having the GUTS to challenge the ministers.

Errrrr. So you say they need the CHANCE to get into the parliament to say what they are going to do? But don't you think that we need to understand what they want to do before allowing them to take care of Singapore?
Wah so easy, next time I will just speaking up (in a stern tone) and highlight the problems so as to get the how $$$million zillion$$$ salary the government is getting. Don't need to say my next course of action, just tell them to give me chance and I will prove. Maybe I will. HMMM.

A good policy makers will provide THE NEXT COURSE OF ACTION in the problems that have been highlighted.

And let me emphasize again that these are just MY OPINION - You don't have to agree with me.
I happen to just see this article on and like wow, I can relate to this.
(You can click on the picture for a bigger view and type in the URL to read the whole article.)

Then again, everybody view things differently. I would just like to justify why I've been whining about the only few good opposition party (I FEEL IT'S FEW OK. THAT'S WHAT I FEEL. YOU DONT HAVE TO EFFIN AGREE.) that is present in this current General Election 2011.

On a side note// I strongly support people voting for a GOOD opposition party (I'm pretty sure my definition of a good opposition party has been emphasized many times. Concrete plans, darling. Not just talk and talk and talk to sell yourself, kthxbye.) so that they can 'control' the PAP, in preventing Singapore from becoming a monopolise state.

Following our beefy dinner at Takumi!







The birthday boy:




Contact#: 03 9650 7020

For those who know me personally will know that I am NEVER fond of meat. Not much of a meat-lover; I will always always pick seafood whenever I can.
Of course, I am easy-going (HAHAHAHAHA), will go with the flow when meals are accompanied by other people, especially since it is picked by the birthday boy.

Saw this on their website:

Melbourne's Only Wagyu Beef Specialist

"Serving only the highest quality Australian Wagyu Beef"

And boy, I totally do agree with them. Their beef was splendid!
The marbling of the beef - WOOOTS.
Not too much and not too little. IMO.
Will definitely go there again, especially if I'm with a bunch of beef-lovers.

Was also pleased to find that the place is run by Japanese. How more authentic can you get?

Matt Preston had actually did a review (HERE) so you may be interested to read what he has got to say since it's a food critic.

Maybe its their marketing strategy but still I was swooon over by their beef. I reckon it is the way they slice it, the thickness and all.

Some photos:


You know, I actually realized that I forgot to capture the photos for the food! But you can find them on their website.

We had picked "All-You-Can-Eat" (value for $$ since it's majority guys at the dinner) and the catch is to finish within 1.5h so must CHIONG when the food arrives mahhhh.
And also because I was so excited to eat when the food arrived at our table.


Non-restaurant related photo:
(I looked awkward in most photos! I knew the girls because of BF soooo am a little shy! They were kind enough to ask me join in their photo-whoring. :) Feel less dejected. Hahaha.)
(& I don't feel satisfied with how I do my makeup that day. Overslept and only had less than 30mins to prepare, including deciding my damn clothes! So it did affected my confidence. I'm damn WTF right?)


PS// The last photo, she looked so cute! :)
