Live.Laugh.Love. and..... Eat! (Part II)
Hello, I'm back at this space since the boyfriend is busy purchasing the Puzzle Fighter full version for me online so that I can use Chun-Li. Hahahaha, okay. I think that sounded kinda ridiculous but whatever, it's our all-time favourite PS3 game! This is how we roll, yay.
A few days back, we had late lunch at the most peaceful Crystal Jade...
@ Holland Village
When was the last time you actually had a peaceful & quiet meal in a Chinese restaurant? It was so quiet that we really enjoyed our lunch there.
Lemme introduce you the world's most over-priced peanuts ever... $2 for this damn plate. "I must be nuts to order these nuts for you." Heh oopsy, but I really love the Crystal Jade Wasabi peanuts. It's so yummy!
Crystal Jade's Custard Buns
I'm a huge fan of custard buns and I've been craving for it for the longest time! But once again, their custard buns have disappointed me/us. No doubt it looks yummy and has that molten custard but something about it is just not right. Oh wells...
Our all-time favourite chicken & duck congee!
I'm never a big fan of congee... Until a few months ago, I fell sick and the boyfriend insisted that I should have something healthy for dinner so he brought me to Crystal Jade. Oh my goodness, it's the best congee I've ever tasted! It's really yummy! Ever since then, this congee has become a must-order whenever we step inside Crystal Jade.
Left the restaurant and guess what?
"Baby, this is gonna sound stupid but... Can we take a picture under the sun?'
And the boyfriend's always so ever accommodating with my nonsense... Hee.
Now that we've got our resort-cum-secret-hide-out, we always try to swim whenever possible!
Giving me the camera-shy face, yeah right...
Guess what was the cheeky face gonna do? (Love this candid shot!)
I'm sure you get the picture.
Cheesy 7 & sweet 'n' spicy wings for dinner!
I tried the Cheesy 7 when they first launched it last year and it was so good... That's why I was excited when Cheesy 7 was back but urgh, the cheese topping was so thin. We ordered the one with the meat toppings too and we concluded that they left it behind in the kitchen. What a waste of money.
We thought it was a scam when we first saw the deal on facebook. I guess that's the reason why everyone was so excited about this including us. Guess what? The boyfriend had the buddy meal + cheese fries all by himself. Gosh, such madness! It's yummy but we kinda realized "Chey, it's just two KFC chicken with bacon & cheese in between."
Anyways, make a guess where did we go last Sunday? :)
Eating while queuing...
Find a man who's willing to queue more than 3 hours without a single complaint, just for you. :)
Laughing at the boyfriend: "This is day-light robbery. Every millimetre costs 1 cent!"
YES! We went to the Titanic Exhibition @ The Art.Science.Museum on the very last day and the queue was madness. I enjoyed looking at the exhibition but I doubt boyfriend feels the same way, ooops.
So glad we ended the day well in the end :)
We've been really lazy with our meals lately so guess what delivery we had during one of the evenings?
It's been so long...
But it was such a disappointment.
We called to order around 5 plus and it only arrived at 8.30pm. Then what's the point of placing our order early? We actually expected it to be just like the golden pillow as shown at the cover of the box but it turned out t be as shown in the last picture. Then, what's the point? Such a dumb idea.
All thanks to the evil pillow that turned my boyfriend into an angry monster!
Tell me, which part of it looks like golden pillow?
No doubt that the curry is good but nah, the bread was just... Tasteless. Plus that's not the golden pillow we thought it would turn out to be and oh yes, not forgetting the 2.5 hours of waiting time. Bye, Golden Pillow. We'll never see you again!
On a side note, I've been living the life, laughing every single day, loving everything around me but definitely eating way tooooo much! I can feel my chubby cheeks now, oh gosh. Till then!
Dreaming the reality
Have you ever dreamed of someone leaving you?
But... When you wake up, you're so glad that it was just a dream.
Last night, I had two dreams about the future. Yes, the future and both dreams are connected. They both felt so real... Too real.
In the middle of the night, I dreamed that boyfriend & I was at the airport. This time round, we weren't there to chit-chat at the viewing gallery (yes, we both love planes a lot and we can talk about everything under the sun anywhere, anytime) but to send him off to the US. I was upset but thank God I woke up to boyfriend lying next to me. I was almost close to tears but I was so relieved that it was just a dream and fell back to sleep...
Then, I dreamed about life without the boyfriend after he went to the US. We managed to whatsapp for the first day but on the second day, he went missing. I was worried, so worried. I know he's fine somehow but I just wanted to at least, stay in touch with him. Mom saw me at the living room and asked: "Are you okay?" I was so upset that I burst into tears and started crying out loud. I shocked the boyfriend with my cries and only realized it was just a dream when he hugged and pacified me.
I felt really bad that I've disrupted his sleep for the whole night yet I was really sad and I couldn't stop crying... Went out of the room and met Mom at the dining table. I don't even have to say a word and Mom knows what am I crying about. Felt a little better afterwards but...
I don't know. It's been years since I last woke up to tears. Apart from my Mom, I've never been this afraid to lose someone till I actually dreamed about it and woke up crying. It's bad enough to dream of someone leaving you but what made it worse is, it's coming true in about 1.5 months' time.
Even till now as I'm typing, I'm still tearing... I can't help it but I know, I'll get through this somehow.

Live.Laugh.Love. and..... Eat! (Part I)
Till date, the boyfriend and I have been spending time together everyday (17 days consecutively) ever since he returned from Bali! Life is nothing short of amazing with him around. I always randomly say things like: "I really love life with you. It's so interesting!" because it's true, I swear. As corny as it sounds, he brings colour to my life every single day.
We're like two super-glued together as one. If you've been following my twitter, you'll know that my world revolves around him, at least for the past 5 months. I have no idea whether it is a good or bad thing but one thing I know for sure is, I wanna spend as much time with this man before the super-glue between us has to stretch for 9167.3 miles apart for the next four years. Oh wells, it's tough but we're sure we'll make it through.
So, people have been asking me: "What the both of you do everyday ah?"
Basically, we do nothing yet everything together. We lead a very simple life together because we really enjoy each other's company, a lot a lot a lot x infinity. Perhaps, it's also due to our spontaneous nature and not to forget that the boyfriend always gives in to me. (I shall not discredit him, lol.)
My combo waffle meal, Waffletown @ Balmoral Plaza
I can still remember this was taken after MySpringFling's Spa-rty and the boyfriend picked me up from somewhere in the middle because it was raining heavily, how lovely. Headed down to Waffletown since I couldn't decide what I wanted to eat and he knows it has my all-time favourite food, the combo waffle! It makes me feel like I'm having breakfast every time. Yes, I love breakfast! It makes me feel healthy. Hahaha, right...
A kiss as a reward from him since I was such a darLIN (his nickname for me since 5 years ago) to walk around the whole park with his oversized flip-flops, getting bitten by a thousand mosquitos, tolerating the unbearable heat, chasing after his nephews & him as they're blading and the list goes on.... Okay, I was just kidding about the reward. I think he just felt like kissing me and that explains a picture of love :)
Chilling session at Starbucks after a day of shopping
Boyfriend's just like my personal shopper. Unlike most of the guys... He doesn't grumble even when I take my own sweet time and spend more than an hour in Forever 21. He encourages me to try out different style which makes me a little more bold in terms of my dress sense. He tells me his genuine opinion every time I step out of the fitting room. And I think it's really, really awesome to have a boyfriend like this!
Cheese omelette & buttered corn bits for lunch by Chef Glennboy
Honestly, I think I'm quite unreasonable at times which makes me quite a pain in the ass. Why? Three days before every photoshoot, I'll watch my diet so I told the boyfriend: "No matter how much I whine and complain that I want chocolates, waffle, Gongcha etc, DON'T GIVE IT TO ME." And of course, he agreed.
Then, one fine afternoon, I was happily swimming inside the pool until I saw him walking towards me with his seaweed shaker fries he got from Macs. Ill-disciplined me went: "I want. Damn hungry." So he gave me one then I kept going: "One more, one more. Just one more pleaseee..." and when he didn't want to give me anymore, I got angry. Hahahahaha! Damn poor thing right. But I was really hungry, I swear. So while I was showering, he secretly prepared the healthy yellow (as shown above) for me, hee. Such a sweetie.
Cold dishes served as appetizers
Pork Bulgogi - Stir-fried pork served in a red chili sauce
Beef Bulgogi - Thin slices of beef, marinated in a soy sauce
Dropped by the new Korean restaurant, Big Mama (2, Kim Tian Rd) which is located nearby my house for dinner during one of the evenings. Both the interior design and food feels/tasted authentic since the lady boss is a Korean. The prices are pretty reasonable as well, judging from the taste and amount of serving.
But nothing beats home-cooked food by...
My personal chef, Glenn Wong ;)
He always make sure that we've got veggie in every meal, so healthy!
Pan-fried Shabu-shabu pork
Boyfriend prepared a last-minute early dinner for me before I head out for my next photoshoot in the evening. We're supposed to or rather, he was supposed to do it the authentic Shabu-shabu way but due to time constraint, he had no time to research for a good recipe. Nevertheless, I thought it tasted really great!
I'm not only lazy but also, very greedy. I'm forever bugging him to cook for me and even when he feels lazy too, he will still rack his brains in the supermarket so he can cook something yummy for me! I always tell him: "You really dote on me a lot." and he will never fail to reply: "You'll never find a man who loves you as much as I do." :)
So anyways, guess what's up in Chef Glenn's menu!
Here's a close-up of my favourite burger in the world!
It has all my favourites inside - Beef patty, limed-mushrooms, ham cheese, lettuce & foccacia bread! Tell me, what's not to love? (Feeling really hungry as I'm typing this...)
The hungry contented chef!
He couldn't believe that he has actually made such yummy burgers on his very first attempt! Honestly, we thought it has beaten many restaurants out there for the amount we paid in the supermarket. Hur hur, how shameless can we get... That's the reason why we're made for each other, hahahaha!
So that's all for Part I of Live.Laugh.Love. and..... Eat! I had a great time reminiscing and laughing (like an idiot) at all the silly funny moments we had... I really like how there's a story behind every picture taken. This is why I love blogging & photography!
Stay tuned for Part II ;)
I'm no angel, I'm just me
But I will love you endlessly.
