6 months since I last saw Ben, and today, we met up for dinner. It was a birthday treat from me to him. Went to Waraku at Starhub Center, and it's quite obvious now that I'm totally in love with Waraku, no?

His: Salmon Ikura Cream Udon - Mine: Demi Glace Hamburg

Shared: Green tea ice-cream with red beans and mochi

Ben was totally wow-ed by Waraku to the extent that he claimed he would be abandoning his ex-favourite Ichiban Boshi for Waraku.

Anyway, what's with all the riders who've pillioned me saying that it seems like they are riding on their own? All 5 riders whom I've rode with said the exact same thing and most of them told me to eat more. I'm fat enough already, thank you very much.

I've got the best Daddy (and Mommy) in the whole wide world!

Dad: What do you want to eat for dinner?
Me: Nothing, I just ate bread.
Dad: Turtle soup, want?
Me: No, not in the mood for it today.
Dad: Keep for tomorrow then eat? Expensive soup why don't want?
Me: Because I'm quite full, and save money lah, good!
Dad: Ginger tea, want?
Me: Nooooooo.
Dad: How about Dim Sum? Siew mai, pau, chicken feet?
Me: If there's shui jing bao, I don't mind.
Dad: Didn't see SJB. Never mind, I just buy something back for you. (In the background, I could hear my Mom suggesting a list of food.)

My parents are always trying all sorts of ways to make me eat. And if I would to have a craving for anything, they would be more than happy to go all out to get it for me.

I know I've put them through a lot since early 2004 regarding food, and I knew how crushed they were. I'm truly sorry. It wasn't by choice that I turned out that way, it just developed slowly and unknowingly as the dieting progressed. But, I'm no longer stick-thin like I was in 2005 and 2006. So Mom and Dad, it really isn't necessary to fret over my food consumption. I know both of you love me, and I do too.

My attention span during the day is almost non-existent, thanks to my ever-persistent insomnia. I can win "the walking zombie" award.

This new Enchanted advertisement from Nuffnang is so appropriate because I just returned home from watching it with NJ4. Sweet show, and because it's sort of like a musical, I like it all the more.

What's that gross looking thing, you may wonder? It's dark brown, gooey, and looks absolutely disgusting. But I assure you, it isn't anything disgusting, though nothing to shout about either. It's actually:

Mudpie McFlurry

I feel cheated. It's essentially normal Oreo McFlurry with a dosage of hot fudge. Sure, it made the entire thing very chocolate-y, but really, not a big deal. ?Mudpie? -_- Because NJ4 said, "It's something new, we should try!", so we did. For me, I'd rather stick to chocolate milkshake.

Thank you darling, for making my day a cheerier one.

I'm still learning how to not let a mini setback during the day depict how the rest of my day is going to be. I hope to be able to rebound from my little setbacks, and not have the "all or nothing" mindset.

There's actually a name for the 'fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of one's mouth'!!! It's 'arachibutyrophobia'. LOL!

I'll never be arachibutyrophobic for I'm a hardcore peanut butter lover. I ever finished a 794g bottle in 3 days, and I did that a couple of times. I blogged about it before, and for about a month, I was having only peanut butter for my meals. Wonky eating habits. And I can't believe I actually typed in such manner in the past. -_-"

I regret saying no to his request of talking to me one last time at 5am before he set off for his 3 days 2 nights patrol field camp.

For the fear of being unable to go back to sleep after the call, I declined him. Like what's new, I've been insomnia-ing for the last 4 years.

It's okay though, Thursday night isn't too far away.

Another Nuffnang advert, on a Nike charity run. This should be appealing to runaholics. Lose some flabs and do a good cause too.


A lone spicy cheese donut from Donut Factory.

Wasn't craving for donuts today, but since we were at Velocity and that I've long wanted to try this particular flavour, my boy did the honour of getting one for me. A box of 6 or 12 (oh God forbid!) would have easily thrown me into a full-drive disaster.

Back to the donut, the spicy cheese tasted somewhat like the cheese on KFC's cheese fries, but with a slight peppery touch to it. I must say it's rather unique, but not on my top list. Also, it wouldn't be something that I die-die-must-have the next time a donut craving hits.

But because NJ4 and I were savouring the donut together, it made the whole eating experience a rather sweet one. =) I love NJ4.

About a week ago, I set myself a challenge.

Of those 9 days, I've had 7 purple smileys. Although it wasn't a perfect streak, I consider it as a huge success already.

About a month to the big day. I hereby set myself another challenge.

Mini pizza

Cute food again. The size of this pizza was that of my palm. Use the fork as a gauge, and no, I wasn't using a baby fork. The pizza was really that small.

The speed, urgency and amount scares the shit out of me. Especially so when I lift my head for a breather. When it strikes, it shows no mercy. Not something that's within my control at that point in time, but I do hope to muster control over it, sooner rather than later.

9 months of nonsense and jumping at each other's throat, but we're still surviving well. Battered and scarred, but love will heal them all. =)

Totally stuffed out from dinner at Boon Tong Kee with my family. Hello BingYu, hahaha!

One month from tomorrow onwards. On your (my) mark, get set, GO!

I like my new pencil case, because he's on it, LOL! (private joke)
Today was fairly good, although some unforeseen boo-boo happened, but all is well now (I think).

Collected my photocard licence from the post office before he brought me to Singapore Discovery Centre to visit the Army museum. The place was pretty bare (in terms of displays and human traffic), but the show/movie section was quite fascinating, with the effects and all.

This month's my turn to do the planning, so I brought him to Seah Street Deli at Raffles Hotel for late lunch/early dinner. Food was alright, but there was something really special about their mashed potato (and mind you, I'm not much of a potato person - a different story altogether when it comes to sweet potatoes though).

Salmon Steak - - - - - - - - - - Beef Pot Roast

The boo-boo occurred after that, but let's skip it, for everything is resolved now. Went back to AMKhub to catch Bee Movie. Very very very nice (at least to me it was very nice)! And today, my prince was good, because he didn't try to be funny and compete with my speed of throwing out his Debit card. =)

Friday, November 09, 2007

HEH! 30mins ago I was pissed, but not anymore, because NJ4 just arrived with THIS:

Earlier this evening, I told him that there's a new outlet at Velocity and he rushed there right after he book out just to get it for me! I actually told him only for convenience sake, so in future when the craving hits, we don't have to go so far to get them. Didn't expect him to spring this surprise on me! =) Thank you sweetheart!
Drats, my driving licence was delivered today but nobody was home to sign the registered mail. I'll probably collect it tomorrow.

Both my brothers are pure geniuses. They each took a set of the Kelisa's key yet neither of them used the car. The car is sitting nicely outside my gate and both of them are not at home. Because of the two bright bulbs, I can't pick my boy.

And why on earth is my elder brother holding on to the Kelisa's key when he has his own car. WTF.

It's drizzling and baby's going to get caught in it. =(

Sometimes, it's just not so funny anymore. One week challenge.

The piano pieces that my younger brother's girlfriend is playing now really is quite therapeutic. How I regret giving up after Grade 3, almost 12 years ago.

Sunday, November 04, 2007

It's almost 1.30am, and I'm home alone. Parents have gone to a friend's place for dinner, super havoc. Elder brother was at a wedding dinner, probably havoc-ing away as well.

Random: I love Waraku, a lot.

His: Yanagawa set (beef set)

I still love the udon like mad. The chewiness is oh-so-good.

Mine: Potato Mentai

The cheese was really quite orgasmic! LOL! Just look at that gooey stuff! YUM! It's really delicious, but I couldn't stomach too much of it at one go. Had to take a break in between before continuing. Then again, about half of it went into my baby's tummy. HAH!

Friday, November 02, 2007

OMG! NJ4 is here! Surprise bookout, and surprise drop by. YAYYY!

Thursday, November 01, 2007

Only second day after I got my license and my family members are already making me drive around. GAH! -_-

This morning, elder brother wanted to send me to AMK so I can take bus from there to school, ended up to be a scam, I had to drive myself to AMK, only with him taking over thereafter.

After dinner with my family, they made me drive home. GAHHH! And the night scene was so darn foreign to me for I've never had a night lesson before. But they agreed that I handled the manual car well. =)

call me tiger
