With 2008 coming to an end, I'd like to sum up my last day of 2008.

I had half day off, and NJ4 is on block leave, so we had the whole afternoon to ourselves. NJ4 decided that we should explore Marina Barrage: the new water catchment area located in town.

It's a beautiful place to take a stroll, have a mini picnic, or just enjoy the view and breeze. You will see why in the following pictures:

Catch me when I fall.

Isn't the place very serene, pretty and nice? More pictures can be viewed over at Facebook.

We're ending the year at my place with a bottle of fruit wine. =)

Happy New Year everyone!

Finally, we've gotten hold of some pictures of my elder brother's wedding. This picture is just a teaser, so for those who are interested, view the rest of the pictures at Facebook.

Orange Ipod Nano

I originally wanted 16gb, but the DFS at Australia's airport did not carry it, so NJ4 had to make do with 8gb. But it's okay, so long it's orange, anything goes. Besides, I don't think I need that much memory space.

There's nothing much to be merry about recently, but I'll get by.

He's just like the others. And I thought he was different. Oh, he sure was different, a million times worse than the others. He excel in that. Dinosaurs do not exist anymore. Period.

With my own loved ones (or so I thought) against me, I've never felt so alone before.

Elder Brother and Sister-In-Law are back from their honeymoon at Hokkaido and look what they bought back for me:

Another Tigger added to my ever-growing Tigger family! =)

Caught Twilight today and although the entire vampire thing isn't all that realistic, the visuals were good.

I totally dig the Cullen's house! Literally a breath-taking view from Edward's room. I would die contented if I ever get a chance to live in a place like that. Sweet.

With NJ4 away in Australia, I was free on Sunday after my Yiptong family lunch gathering so Mandy and I met up and swept almost the entire Orchard Road. Our new love: Sephora!!!

Miss 开心果 gave NJ4 and I Christmas gifts in advance, thanks sweets.

NJ4's gift is an Elmo plushie, and it's really so him, hah! (private joke)

I was on leave on Monday and was supposed to be in Bangkok but because the trip was cancelled, it gave me an opportunity to pick my love from the airport. =)

He made this for me in Australia, and surprisingly, it was his Mom who instigated him to do so! LOL! I love the gorgeous bangle. =)

And then of course, there's the obligatory box of Krispy Kreme which is essentially nothing but sugar, flour and tonnes of empty calories.

Despite dissing how sinful the doughnuts are, I still savoured every single morsel of them. But I think I still prefer muffin-liked doughnuts [ie. left column second from top & right column first from top (ignore the top 2 out of place doughnuts)] to the classic ones.

I miss the Dunkin' Donuts I had back in Bangkok! BLAH!

Today, the Yiptong family came together for a lunch gathering at Hotel Grand Central - Tian Jin Restaurant.

Having them come down all the way from various parts of the world to attend my elder brother's wedding is already a great honour, and the lunch gathering today is another event to be thankful and grateful for.

To be honest, this is probably 1/4 or less of the entire Yiptong clan. LOL!

Altogether, say cheese!

The Yip Tong and YipTong generation.

The Yiptong generation

Blood related loves

The brothers are so darn cute!

The cousin who looks a little like Howard Lo IMO. =)

The rest of the pictures can be viewed at Facebook.

So, I now officially have a sister-in-law. Tea ceremony, solemnization and wedding banquet, all in a day.

11 years of courtship. 1st night as a lawfully wedded couple. May the two old love birds have everlasting love and a blissful marriage. 大哥,大嫂, congratulations. =)

Pictures will be up when the photographers send them over to the newly weds, and when I get hold of them. Till then, be patient. =)

P/S: My cousin from Toronto looks a little like Howard Lo from Eye for a Guy 2. Cute. =X HAHAHA.

As I'm typing this, my love is at Changi Airport T3 roaming the transit area alone, waiting to board the plane in an hour's time.

His family left for Australia last night and would return on a different date from him as well. It's like a replica of the Home Alone series, hah!

The next 6 days would be a bore without him, and because of the cancelled Bangkok trip, my leave from tomorrow till 23rd would be spent bumming around.

The only good thing is that my elder brother's wedding is tomorrow! =)

Can my Mom be ever more up-to-date than she already is? I'm utterly amazed, seriously!

She just called me at work and asked if things were okay between Jay-Jay and I, just because I removed the "married" status in Facebook. It's 8.50 AM for crying out loud! HAHAHA.

Oh my goodness! Mother, power lah!

With my Elder Brother's wedding happening just about a week later, Sparky was brought for grooming for the first time by professionals. I've never liked Sparky in short hair because he looks funny.

And I've eaten so much for dinner today that I swear if I'm being hung up-side-down, everything would flow out. Surprisingly, I feel okay. Liar.

Saturday was full of nonsensical shit when Mandy and I met up for a hair dye date. Her laughter has always been so infectious that I can't help but laugh at her and with her. Little Miss 开心果.

She got so excited over her new hair colour when it finally turned out the shade she's been trying to achieve with all her self dyes. It's good that the both of us walked out as 2 happy customers. =)

NJ4 and I then went to explore the new wing of North Point and I was so pleased to see Bakerzinn there! It's time to load up those calories!

We caught Bolt and I teared towards the end of the show. I just have this soft spot for dogs, especially really cute ones.

It's actually quite laughable because it was just an animated movie, yet it was able to make me tear. Blah.

A good watch indeed. =)

It is so freaking annoying that our trip to Bangkok which we planned and booked air tickets for in July 2008 have to be cancelled. And it is all because of all the crazy chaos going on there.

So what if the airport is open again, we're not crazy enough to risk our lives to go there and get shot/raped/trampled over/whatever.

It's a trip that the girls and I have been planning for so long already. Air tickets were booked in July, so go figure our anticipation for it which is now being flung out of the window. Damn.

call me tiger
