Olive rice crave: Nice wok smell but no olive smell at all!!! Boohoo~

Officially started Zumba again with Shuning and Chii Hian and it was both the girls’ first time trying out! They were pretty lost and so was I, but at least I’m used to it and know that the technique is to keep moving even if you’re lost…hahaha! Not sure if they enjoyed it but I sure did. Though not the best class I’ve attended. Could have sweated more!

Oh Happy Birthday vivianbee.wordpress!
8 years of memories, wow~

And happy 1st anniversary to my new job company as well! It was actually last week but I totally forgot about it! 1 year passed real fast yet thinking back, from the first 摆家 project to my 4th drama project now, not forgetting all the boring/exasperating/traumatising projects in between, indeed a lot seemed to have happened. But despite all the occasional, or some may say frequent rants, I am still proud of this 1 year because it has been the most productive one so far…HAHAHA. More importantly, I am glad that I survived (:

梅菜扣肉饭: Trying out all the different dishes again before the owner/chef/menu changes.
I don’t know why I keep secretly hoping that they hire DeliVege chef!

Finally went for Hot Yoga again as well and after I spent like 20 minutes locating the place…

Instructor: *apologetic face* We may have to cancel the class because you are the only one who registered for this time slot…

Me: *bewildered* Huh… Then I have to go home???

Instructor: Yes… Maybe… But you stay here and wait first, we’ll see if anyone else turns up.

And thank goodness, 3 other ladies came and we had a mini class of 4! 4 is like a private class, whereby the instructor has ample time to focus on you, bend you, torture you, and manipulate you like plasticine. But it’s a good thing, because that’s the only time you go beyond your limits! Haha!

Me: *in the midst of being tortured and giving the =OOOOOOOOOOOOOO agonising face*

Instructor: This should open up your spine, not your mouth…

Me: *shuts mouth immediately =X *

HAHAHAHAHAHA!
I must say that my legs were all turning jelly just 20 minutes into the class! Can you imagine how torturous this hot flow class is? But the Indian instructor is pretty nice and humourous, which made the tortures a little better. And besides yoga, he has taught us some life values as well:

Practising yoga is not just about the flexibility in your body, but it’s the flexibility in your mind as well. How you handle things that happen in your everyday life… If a person shouts at you, what do you do? If you do not have the flexibility in your mind, you would do the same and shout back. So what happens? This becomes a bigger conflict. But if you have the flexibility in mind, you will treat it as the person is barking and let the matter rest. Same when you order a cup of tea without sugar, but you got a cup with sugar, so what do you do? Get angry over it and make a big fuss? Or does it matter if you drink that one cup of tea with sugar? It’s just 1 cup, it’s just a small mistake made by the staff. Why ask to see the manager, why risk someone’s rice bowl just because he/she made a small mistake? So if you have the flexibility in mind, you will be able to think well and act calmly.

And the very next day, I saw a taxi driver and a passenger quarreling right under my block – the latter was throwing a huge fuss because the cabbie charged her card on Masters without asking her, and she wanted NETS actually. The woman shouted and shouted at the cabbie incessantly, and I could heard it all from my level. In the end, they even got the cops here. Seriously? Over Masters or NETS? She needs yoga.

Brunch @ Choupinette – the place that is recommended for their eggs!
Thumbs up! But why you all so farrrrrrrr T.T

Headed off to town to search for Isaac’s costume and then movieeeeee~! Yes! Le boy is gonna be involved in his year-end concert and le Yiyi is excitedddddddd! :D Even though he’s not acting as a bee but a banana (I thought yellow and black only means bee!!! -_-|||), he’s gonna be cute. He’s gonna be cute even if he acts as a tree.

Anyhow, back to the movie. Caught Gone Girl as recommended by Ally and my brother. I was told that it’s R21 because there’s 1 sex scene, so that’s how I conveyed it. In the end, there were so many of them…oops~ Hehe. At least we are all above 21! xD
poster_1411371682

So the movie, 2 words – mind and fucking. It’s indeed so much about the mind, and so much fucking and in the end it turned out to be so mind-fucking that I was still thinking about how sick a person can be. Or how vengeful a person can get when it comes to love. It kinda scares me actually.

Nick: Fuck. You’re delusional. I mean, you’re insane, why would you even want this? Yes, I loved you and then all we did was resent each other, try to control each other. We caused each other pain.

Amy: That’s marriage.

Sick. So fucking sick.
I just can’t imagine sleeping beside someone who may be planning on killing me any night. And I am really sick of people getting together hoping and expecting that each other will change into that desired person you want him/her to be.

Saturday was spent with my cute residents again and I admit that I was a bit discouraged by the rain initially, but I still went in the end because my next weekend will be packed with a whole day of work at MBS and training as well, so I won’t be able to go.

The volunteers turnout rate was a complete opposite from last week and for a moment I thought there was some event going on! Not so much help needed as a result because we always give opportunities to the newer volunteers to interact with the residents. Anyway I’ve come to realise over time that we are not here just to help but to accompany them as well, so it’s still nice having residents coming up to you to say Hi or sticking to you ((:

Followed by captain’s ball!

Somehow, I was more high during the game than the residents because our group happened to be consisting of the lower functioning ones. But our duty is still to make sure everyone gets involved in the game, so I paired up with this Superman resident (he loves Superman and draws the logo damn well!) and I would pass the ball to him while he would score the goals. We scored like so many goals with our ultimate pairing! Hahaha!

Joined the volunteers for their usual dinner again but this time round, I brought the Hougang-ers to AMK instead. Then off to Sis’s house for stayover with the baby monster!

Then the monster turned all whiny when I didn’t wipe his runny nose the correct way -___-|||

Monster: Tissue! Tissue!

Me: *pass him tissue*

Monster: Isaac 要擦 (His way of ordering you to wipe for him -_-“)

Me: *wipes his nose gently in order not to hurt him*

Monster: 要大大力!!!(-_-“””)

Me: *pinches his nose and wipe*

Monster: 不是这样捏!不是这样捏!!!*Cryyyyyyyyyy and turned all whiny*

Me: Then 你自己擦咯 >.> *passes tissue back*

Really like a king leh! And a super mischievous one!

Love is when you have someone camping for Xiaomi charger for you because you completely forgot about it and yours is spoiled (:

Love is when you have someone camping for Xiaomi charger for you because you completely forgot about the promo and yours is spoiled :D

To summarise this whole week, I actually only have 2 words – 淘宝。What happened was I was finally exploring this China version of Qoo10 after knowing that they have come up with a TaoBao SEA version, which is supposed to make purchases easier for Southeast Asians like us without having to go through an agent.

So I happily made a few purchases from the website after comparing prices with Qoo10 and waited for my loots… Who knows I later got informed that the buyers all do not ship to Singapore as they only ship within China!

My first thought was – “Why is it even called Taobao SEA when you are not going to ship to Southeast Asia countries?!” But fine, I got my refund, which was credited to the cheena version of their PayPal – Alipay.

My next attempt was to of course transfer the refund back to my card but guess what! All the bank selections are CHINA BANKS!!! On top of that, all the whatever verification details asked for are also meant for China residents – China 18 numerical IC number, China phone number and etc. Nothing is meant for Southeast Asians, in other words!

So I tried to seek help through their messenger customer service system and spent pretty much of my time typing to one staff after another in Chinese, IN CHINESE!!! Imagine the horror. And I thought reading stuff on the site was hard enough! I hate it when I’m compelled to type or read Chinese characters just because one doesn’t understand English; it’s such an international language…Zzzzz.

And so at the end of the 3298463873 conversations, the conclusion was – they only support China banks for now (and I was asked if I have one. I was like, “Why do I need a China bank account when I already said I am Singaporean?!”)

Then their advice was to that I use my balance to buy things, which resulted in another horror – me messaging 38973498 sellers asking, “有运来新加坡吗?” and all 38973498 said they only ship within China. TaoBao SOUTHEAST ASIA, seriously???!

Felt damn cheated and annoyed that I swore never to shop on TaoBao again! But first, I need to use up my balance first!!! Well, eventually I finally found a solution, which is to use 65daigou for their forwarding service (thanks to my lovely friends for their kind suggestions!!!) and I have successfully placed my orders so far, but let’s just hope nothing goes wrong again before the goods reach me >.>

Despite the cheap bargains and also having a solution to deliver my loots over now, I am still skeptical about shopping on TaoBao SEA again. Simply because I still don’t think they are ready to serve anyone out of China. Yea so that’s my bad experience as a warning to all friends out there – if you’re thinking of shopping on the site, then be prepared for a Mandarin battle.

On a happier note, a good friend of mine has opened her first spectacle shop! I don’t think I can name her yet but I think it’s quite obvious who is it…HAHAHAHA. Well anyway, before I get to snap some pictures and do a proper hard-selling advert, do consider showing some support if anyone’s keen on getting new specs! They are having some awesome opening promo right now so please drop by to take a look! :D

Monday morning horror.

Actually not so much of a horror for me cause Ally was the one who got freaked out and both Cheryl and her were gaping at me when I reached. I was like, “Huh? Both forgot to bring keys???” *silence*

It was until I walked nearer then Ally showed me her broken key and then the other half stuck inside…hahahaha. The result of too much spinach! But miraculously, she managed to get it out with her short nails! O.O

Caught 痞子英雄 2 (Black & White: The Dawn of Justice) and finally had my nachos! Miss it so much but I always can’t find anyone to share with~
IMG_15481346241937

I spent the Sunday watching the prequel – Black & White: The Dawn of Assault so I could understand many flashbacks and relate to scenes that are being mentioned. But I think it’s still very far off from the drama itself, which is really, really good by the way. Like one of the best drama I’ve ever watched and it’s really rare that I like something that doesn’t really belong to the romance genre, so it must be real good!

Anyway, back to the movie – it’s not bad but I find that there are too many things happening at the same time; I didn’t know where to focus my excitement on after some time. Oh and too much explosions. For a moment I was wondering if it’s directed by Michael Bay. But of course, my main focus is still on Mark Zhao…muahahaha.

ESN Carnival

Was in a mood to bake so I spent the PH baking a cake… Or rather, steaming a cake~ I’m more confident in baking cookies than cakes now after many failed attempts, so I wanted to try a simpler recipe – one that doesn’t require the oven and best part is I don’t have to wash the mixer (hate that the most)!

It was supposed to be an steamed orange chocolate cake, but because I was too lazy to go get oranges, I replaced the orange with errr… alcohol [The Confession Of An Alcoholic], which still turned out well, though the alcohol smell ain’t strong enough. And despite it being a steamed cake, it actually turned out better than the ones I had previously baked!
 photo 20141006_203625_zpsffc0d0cb.jpg

The ganache was a bit too watery and I used a mixture of white chocolate with semi-sweet chocolate chips, which explains the not-so-appetising Milo colour. But it actually moist the cake, making it a bit like lava cake!!! And if left overnight in the fridge, the texture would become chewy, a bit like Market O brownie, which I like too!
 photo 20141007_085816_zps16f48af6.jpg

Wouldn’t mind making it every week since it’s so hassle-free! But if only I have people to help me finish~ My pig brother is suddenlyyyy going into this whole being health-conscious thing that I’m facing this first world problem – like to bake but can’t find anyone to finish.

Taking Thomas train home after a really impromptu K session!

Started using Premiere Pro 2014 version for a new project because it was started on this version and OMG~ I really lost count of how many times I have to relaunch my Premiere each day! It’s a PAINNNNNNN editing on Premiere Pro 2014 because it has so much problems!

Like every 15 minutes I edit, I have to relaunch it because the audio playback gets out of sync and I just can’t edit properly! But the worst was when it started corrupting my files, making me have to re-import and sync back again! ARGHHHHH! It’s madness! I really don’t understand why choose to start the project on this version in the first place! New doesn’t mean it’s always better, period!

Staying away from all spicy food this week because of 2 pimples :( But comfort food is still always comfort food~
 photo 20141010_134446_zps7d23b416.jpg

Saturday was a whole day of MINDS followed by mind games with the volunteers after the project~ Decided to join at the last minute for the carnival after knowing that they are really short-handed for this outing.

We brought 16 residents for the ESN Carnival and yet we only had like 9 volunteers! Some were responsible for manning the game booths and hence we had even lesser volunteers to look after the residents. We had to keep coordinating amongst each other, looking after each others’ residents during toilet visits and etc.

It’s my first time attending the carnival and it’s basically an event organised by the Elderly Sector Network for the elderly from various homes. It’s not a MINDS event, but we are invited to be part of this meaningful programme. The residents contributed to this event by putting up a short dance performance for the elderly, and we also had 2 game booths for them to enjoy some kampong games (:

First time at Marina Bay Cruise Centre
Didn’t even know the existence of this place.

Flowerrrrrr

Did not have time to take many photos because my hands are usually occupied. Did not even manage to catch our residents’ performance :( It was really a super short-handed outing because each of us were attached to at least 3 residents and I only have 1 pair of eyes, so you can imagine how many times I had to turn my head to keep making sure my residents did not wander off~

And when it came to bringing the residents around the food stations to get their lunch using the credit coupons given, it was worse. Like 1 resident may wanna eat from this stall while the other 2 wants to explore another, so we had to take turns to get the food, resulting in less time to walk around the carnival. If we have had more volunteers and we can have 1 resident attached to 1 volunteer (most ideal situation), then we could move around freely and do not have to wait for each other to finish the meal as well.

Having our last-minute lunch

The plan was to get the residents to have their lunch first, then walk around the carnival before going to our game booths for our shift work of manning the stalls. But by the time everyone is done, it was time for our shift x.x

 photo 20141011_142440_zpsdf000252.jpg

One of our booths – ping pong game!

The idea is to throw the ping pong balls into the holes of the same colours to win a prize!

 photo 20141011_142435_zps28b214cd.jpg

Volunteer from another organisation caught cheating! Hahaha!

Thank goodness we still had time to walk around the carnival and play some games after our shift! The residents were really looking forward to that! But the same problem – you would be pulled to one station by one while the rest want to visit another station.

As much as it’s endearing to know that you’ve been missed and you ended up having someone sticking to you for the whole day, they can be quite “possessive” and wanting you all for themselves. So many of us were stuck in this situation and there was even a scene of both of us (another volunteer and I) being pulled by 2 different residents to 2 different area while the rest are wandering in the middle! Hahaha!

Basketball!

 photo 20141011_145450_zps028edd53.jpg

Wheel of “prizes”!

Nevertheless, we still managed to work it out somehow and visited almost all the game booths! The residents were really happy because they won so many prizes from the games! Like 3-4 bags of them! A pity we have to hand them to the hostel in-charge because we cannot let them keep them, in case there are any dietary allergies or “dangerous items“. It’s not something we can control because what we deem as safe may not really be safe for them… Yea so that was the only sad part.

We really wish that the prizes would eventually be distributed to them, at least the snack items, because they were really happy to win them on their own, and happiness to them is really as simple as a packet of biscuit. They were kinda disappointed when we had to collect their prizes back…

Oh well~ I guess at least I believe they really had a very fun time at the carnival because I had! Hectic day, but we made it!

 photo 20141011_150852_zpsa0350b2f.jpg

回家咯~!

Joined the volunteers for dinner after that and we ended the night playing some card game in Mac which requires quite a bit of thinking. I had problem trying to remember everyone’s identity and also a hard time guessing! Kept getting lost in the game…hahaha! But they are a funny bunch so we had lots of fun and laughter together (:I am so glad that I had went to help in the outing because I really can’t imagine having any less volunteers. The other volunteers also kept thanking me for coming and it only made me feel bad that I had not agreed earlier. They are the bunch that I really admire, dedicating almost every Saturdays for the regular projects.
Like I always said, no time is an excuse. It’s just a matter of what you prioritise. Some people prefer to spend their Saturdays going out with friends, some prefer to stay at home to catch up some dramas, while some prefer to spend it at churches or other religious worship. But these people prioritise these residents every week and I think it’s much more meaningful than anything else.

I am not saying that I am as noble as them, dedicating every of my Saturdays for the residents, but it’s something that I will work towards, and I will definitely be making more time to go back, especially when I know help is needed. Like what YH said, it’s always a positive thing to be there, never a negative. Everything there is positive – the people, the energy, the mind and etc. And that’s what I love about it.

It’s been 7 years since I first joined the project, and I am still going back irregularly because of this. I think being part of them has opened up my views towards the less fortunate and of course made me understand them more. Like if I have not joined, I may have been one of the narrow-minded ones thinking that this intellectually-disabled person is “crazy” or “siao” and wanna stay as far away from him/her as possible if I see one in public transports. But I don’t, because I know why they are behaving this way and that they are actually harmless.

Well, if anyone is looking for volunteering opportunities, do consider joining us for some positive energy at Terra Hope! No, you don’t have to sign a lifetime contract or commit for a minimum period – it’s all from within the heart, so you can drop by to see what the regular projects are like or how you can help. Project is usually every Saturday from 3pm – 6pm at MINDSville@Napiri (:

“Ahhhhhh~ I want to go mop floor!”

Dinner was held at The Famous Kitchen this year and the food was not bad. Then it was the birthday boy’s long-awaited cake-cutting session! I was shopping for his present in Toys”R”Us the other day and I got Sis to ask him what he wants. His voice note turned out to be, “Yiyi, Isaac 要买。。。Isaac 要买。。。。。。Yiyi, Isaac 要买。。。。。。。。。cake!” FAINT~!!!

Imagine I was playing that in Toys”R”Us and anticipating his answer, yet it turned out to be his gluttony answer again -_- Nevertheless, I really got Bro to get him 1 more cake after knowing that his Barney one is pretty small~ I just didn’t want the boy to be sad over his cake, and since he wanted cake so much, I shall fulfill his wish by letting him have 2 cakes!

As usual, he was more excited about the cakes than the whole photo-taking session that he forced a smile through all the way -_- And he was getting all impatient by the time I took with him! But at least he still managed to force a smile…haha!

“What is it….?”

It’s a Ukelele!

It was actually Bro’s idea because Isaac loves playing with Bro’s spoiled guitar whenever he comes over, so my crazy-over-music brother insisted on getting a Ukelele for him!

“I have my own guitar (ukelele) now! :D”

Happily strumming!

But I think the “chor lor” boy will smash it up soon -_-|||

Second present from Yiyi and Jiujiu – Thomas Lego set! I hope he has the patience to build, unlike his Yiyi =/

He was definitely excited to see the steering wheel! He loves to drive!

Elated with all his presents!!!

Previously when Sis asked him what he wants to wish for for his birthday, he said, “Toys“, so I guess he really got his wish fulfilled! He has got so many new toys now ((:

On the way back to our house, the birthday boy actually made a request to go up – “等一下给 Isaac 上去一下 Yiyi’s house。” It’s so cute because he usually demands for things, so it’s so cute hearing him making such “request” that sounds a bit like an order too…hahaha!

And because he tried to be naughty, Bro scared him with his police cap because Isaac is super scared of police! You should see his freaked out face, it’s always so funny!

And don’t he just looks sooooooooo cute in the cap?!

“I am a police too! Bang bang!”
