When West Meets East

First day of 2015 – Finally tried something I had been wanting to try!

Looks damn damn damn yummy right! ♡_♡
Reiko used to buy it occasionally and I will be like drooling at it~ But because usually she gets it after lunch, I am always too full to try!

Ladies Nite AP’s Starbucks treat & my otah bread as breakfast! 😀

Had a simple and happy Saturday again starting with filling the hungry tummy! Suggested to visit the new Seletar Mall because I had not have the chance to check it out yet, and my suggestion was approved! Hehe! It’s been so long since the last gai gai session and even though I did not buy anything, I still like to explore and walk around ((:

Then I had my first “breakthrough” for 2015 – getting on the wheels after 8 months!!! It’s my very very first time driving after I had officially passed and no doubt I was mad nervous! Even though it was just for a really short distance, my heart was pounding like mad and continued to even after I got back into my very safe passenger seat!

But ironically, I am actually quite happy to be on the wheels again! I do like to drive but just find it stressful. Surprisingly I still remember the steps and all~ Unbelievable! I guess sometimes I just need a little push to do something that I actually wanna do but lacks the courage. And sometimes, the person who gives you the courage may also be the one who instills your fear…hahahaha! But thank you for always giving me the courage! 😀

Went for the usual 2-hour dance before embarking on my journey to the west! Thank god for circle line, if not I will really, really, really hate to travel to this ulu pandan part of Singapore! Jurong just feels so foreign to me and just getting from Jurong West to Jurong East actually took me like 40 minutes!!! But all’s worthwhile for Auntie Nancy~

For those who have read my blog for years, you may remember her as the auntie at my Chingay whom I always described as very “auntie“~ She also joined me for NDP last year but unfortunately, she got a stroke shortly after that and I only learned about it recently 😦

She’s really, really sad that she couldn’t join Chingay this year as she has been joining for the past at least 10 years and this is her first time missing it! Can totally understand her feeling because I can’t imagine not being able to perform one day too! It’s like you’re forced to let go of your passion…

Visited her at her house and chit-chatted with her, giving endless encouragement because I really wanna see that crazy and confident very “auntie” Auntie Nancy again! I really hope I can at least fulfill her wish of getting her to watch us perform so that at least she can still be part of us, but just as an audience this year.

Glad to know that she’s recovering bit by bit though. At least her face is no longer drooped to one side like initially and she can speak without slurring now. She’s still wheelchair-bounded but I hope she will get well SOON SOON SOON and join us next year!!! 😀

Roamed around Westgate since it’s not often that I will be at that area and then I happened to see llao llao (opening soon) on the store directory! I don’t know why I itchy backside and went to check if it’s opened -.- And it really has!!! Ended up queuing about 30-40 minutes for it on my own…gosh~ I must be crazy!

But there’s really nothing else my hungry tummy felt like eating except this! >.<

Finally went back to rest and prepare for the next day’s journey to the east! Starting with a good (and sinful) meal at IKEA!!! 😀 Finally, finally satisfied my craving! They should really open another IKEA in the central! Booooo~

After so much fats, it was time to work them off! But it was mad mad mad HOT that we almost wanna drop the idea~ I actually wanted to play badminton more, but it’s quite impossible to get a court at the last minute, so went ahead with our cycling plan eventually!

The little one suggested cycling out of the park to Marina Barrage area and although I don’t feel safe on the road, I always don’t mind exploring and having a “breakthrough“, like she called it. But we ended up nowhere near Marina Barrage…LOL.

Hello! Where is this?!?!

And after much Google-mapping, aimless cycling, lots of pushing and carrying the bikes around steps and busy roads, banging, bruising and dashing, we ended up at the new stadium! I didn’t even know where we were until I was like, “I’ve been here before!” Cause it looks a bit different in the day without the lit-up bridge…hehe~

Spent like more than 1.5 hours to get here, even though Lyn first said we will reach barrage in just 45 minutes -_-|||

I was quite drained of energy after all the bike-carrying and since we only rented the bike for 3 hours, I figured that we will need time to get back as well, so we decided to just take a break (and cam-whore) before heading back~

Have a break, have a stick!

And guess what, it only took us like 15-20 minutes to get back in the end! Cause we actually made a BIGGGG detour to get to the stadium when we could have taken a much shorter route -_- Thanks to Google Map! And thanks for being too adventurous without any preparation~ Hahaha! I guess we all had a good workout!
