And also caught the long-awaited movie – Best Of Me from one of Nicholas Sparks’ books which I’ve read and loved! I remember it because of its sad ending, and as usual, the book is always better. But I still enjoyed and like the movie quite a lot ((:
Saturday was spent at MINDS as usual and this week we taught them how to make fruit salad! I was busy running around from table to table stealing ingredients for my group…hahaha! And I thought the mixture of thousand island sauce with jam is kinda weird but the residents seem to like it a lot~ They all almost licked up the bowls! Hehe!
After that was teaching through games – taught them about RULES~ One of the rules we emphasised includes no hugging or other body contact other than handshakes and high-fives, but right after the project, 1 of the female residents hugged me goodbye -_- Just when I thought we had taught them well…
Anyway, super good news to share! I finally found a restaurant willing to sponsor the residents and volunteers’ dinner for the upcoming camp!!! 😀 It’s my first year joining them for this annual camp so I really wanted to help as much as I can~ Guess my hard work paid off after all and there is still 好人 in this world! Just keeping my fingers crossed that they won’t back out at last minute >.<
Second movie of the week was the highly-raved Interstellar, with the volunteers!
It’s an ultimate mind-blowing film, so much that my mind went chaotah in the midst of it because there were so many physics and scientific info to process!!! But no doubt it was a very good movie – the plot and all, just that I felt stupid after watching…hahahaha! Had to read up Wikipedia to fully understand all the little details! Science, is just not my thing~
The 3 musketeers went out for cycling session on the fine Sunday but after less than 30 minutes, we stopped by St. Marc for drinks and light bites! Haha!
Cycled all the way to Changi again and it took us more than 2 hours this time, because we had to cycle back from the cafe as well~ Actually I think the guys could have reached much earlier but somehow my bike is moving way slower than theirs no matter how hard I pedal -_- I really think it’s because my bike wheels are smaller as compared?
Well anyway, I decided to just relax and enjoy the breeze in the end and let them wait for me…hahaha! Dinner at Changi Village before heading to Chock Full Of Beans again! 😀 I’m like addicted to the cuteness of the drinks that I must go each time I am there! Hehe! So I demanded to go prior the cycling trip because I know they will always back out in the end (due to the queue or too full or etc).
Shrine: Will the person think we are referring to the real chopper knife???
Me: *when ordering* Can you draw the Chopper? Not the knife ahhh…
Staff: I know… The One Piece one right?
Shrine: You didn’t have to emphasise -_-“
Third movie in a week – Gone Girl, again~ Same thoughts, same feeling; I still think the woman is crazy.
Nana’s Green Tea with the Mr. this time since we didn’t get to try it the previous time~ I taught him the best way to eat sushi is to stuff the whole thing into your mouth without judging or fear of being judged because that’s how you get feel the fusion of the ingredients melting in your mouth! Slurp! Hahaha!
軍中樂園 after that and I didn’t really know what is it about but I just wanna watch because of Ethan Juan, and I like Taiwanese films in general (:
As warned by Yixuan about the slowness of the movie, I was kinda prepared for it so I didn’t find it especially slow. Yea there were times when I was shouting in my mind, “Cut!” “Cut!” “Cut!” (in terms of editing) but I think I still prefer films having enough time for character development to those that are too choppy and convenient. This way I actually feel more for each of the characters, because I know their background stories better. Anyhow, it’s quite an interesting film; didn’t know there’s such “service” back then!
Survived my first week of Ladies Nite and I have many many many many many more weeks to go~ But it’s still not as bad as <<摆家>> because at least I enjoyed the noisy girls talking about makeup and fashion, and my producer is nice! Just that my schedule is really packed every single day now and I’m really keeping my fingers crossed that I don’t have to come back on Saturdays as well! >.<
