Have been pretty busy lately, at work and also socially 😅 The only time I am left to blog is in the train on the way to work~ Shall combine 2 weeks’ worth of stuff into this post because I don’t know when is the next time I’m free to blog again!
But it kept me full even till yoga class and I started to feel unwell after the Hot Basic class… Started to feel the abdominal pain at 11+pm and I thought it was because I exercised while still feeling bloated, so there was some indigestion going on. Decided to go to sleep because sleep usually solves everything, but ended up waking at 2+am, in pain.
The pain was something that I had never experienced before (I think?) and it comes and goes. So although the pain was a piercing sharp pain, at least it was not the continuous kind of pain; it came in a cycle, and it came in a wave. Like you can feel it when it’s coming, because it’s a gradual wave, like someone stabbing you slowlyyyyyyyy. But the pain was really sharp when it reached the greatest magnitude, making me unable to fall back to sleep!
Was tossing and turning the whole night, trying all sorts of ways to alleviate the pain, but po chai pills, 如意油 and even pooping did not work at all. It was such an unusual pain that got me really paranoid, making me think of all the worst scenarios from gallstones to stomach cancer. I was even thinking of taking a cab down to the A&E! That was how bad the pain is!
In the end I succumbed to Panadol and it helped for like 2 hours. So I managed to sleep for that 2 hours. The pain still came back after that, though less frequency, but I still insisted on going for a checkup to make sure I am fine. I can’t live a life wondering what might be living inside me you see.
I don’t think the doctor’s lame diagnosis was accurate at all, because the medicine did not even stop the pain, though he said it will. So I just lived with the pain the next few days, since it happened less and less frequent each day~ The diarrhoea was pretty detoxing too, so I didn’t mind. My conclusion is food poisoning, though I still don’t know what is the real cause. But the symptoms just seem like food poisoning.
Well anyway, life still goes on even if you are living in pain, so my social life gotta continue of course! Haha! I mean since I feel the pain lying in bed, and I also feel the pain when I go out, so I would rather go out and have some life. If not 不痛死也会闷死 😐
Bought a yam cake before dinner because I was expecting a queue, and I was feeling in need of sugar after a day of diarrhoea~
Movie of the week was Doctor Strange and I think it was pretty good! To be honest, I had no idea who is Doctor Strange prior to this movie because I am not Marvel fan. But after watching I think he’s pretty cool and the movie was also really enjoyable! Pacing was good; not any part that will make you feel like falling asleep. Like they spaced out the excitement really well I think (:
Went for free Piloxing class again but this time I have a partner because Miss President finally made an appearance! The one who jio-ed me for these free classes but always did not turn up 😓 Another super sweaty and tiring 1-hour workout! Super shiok~!
Attempted to discuss for the upcoming trip but it didn’t seem like the night was fruitful nor did it end well. Few days ago Mommeyyyyy was texting me about how I am good at planning trips and all. I told her I am good at it but I don’t enjoy doing it. I do it only because I have no choice; I don’t wanna be stranded on the street or get lost.
Yea I wish people know how tiring it is to plan trips and how much I actually dislike doing it. Trying to Google map all the directions and checking proximity one by one is not fun at all, I can tell you. It’s really so damn tiring having to take so many things into consideration – safety, proximity, reviews, cost, time and etc. And it didn’t help while I was trying to make things more cost-efficient and at the same time, time-efficient, it was said to be unnecessary.
I like to take things into consideration because I don’t wanna waste time being stuck on the street when you clearly know that’s what that is gonna happen. I don’t wanna waste money watching the fare meter ticking away when this could have been avoided. Hence I rather take all these into considerations before making any decisions, and that’s what planning a trip is all about, and I thought everyone would be on the same page. But apparently, such considerations were seen as thinking too much or unnecessary.
I would rather be seen as thinking too much than having to decide everything. “Anything” and “no objection” are the friendliest and easiest answers, but they are also the ones that make peoples’ lives the most difficult, because to be frank, they are not even an answer at all, because they don’t help at all. So when is it my turn to be a follower instead so that I can throw all the decision-making to someone else? And it’s also easy to comment on what is unnecessary to think about, because what’s difficult is the stuff that are necessary to think about.
The long-awaited break cum super mini getaway~ First time trying Horizon Ferry, as recommended by Sis! Indeed bigger and much cleaner! Finally tried Grand iHotel too! Exactly what you need for a good break – Clean room, big bed & bathtub 😊
Bak kut teh & hor fun after exploring the vicinity of Nagoya~
Happiest find – limited edition Crème Brûlée & Tiramisu Magnum!!! Superrrrr yummmyyyyyyy pleaseeeee~!!!
Started a brand new week after enough nua-ing~ Had the rush-est project ever – exporting at 2pm for airing at 8.30pm…Zzzzzz. This is not my style of working 😑 Dislike rush job or last-minute stuff! Was really keeping my fingers crossed that the episode doesn’t get rejected. 真是皇上不急太监急～
Had a simple date with Running Man and also survived another Hot Flow class 💪 Impromptu O’bean meal again before chilling out by the sea!
The preggie was craving for 麻辣香锅 but Ally was reluctant to travel so far. So the siao charboh ran for boss’ car to ask for a ride 😂 How daring! Go so far still dare to ask for ride. Pregnant woman’s privilege I guess~
Selfie in the yellow van! 🚚 Off we go for our 麻辣~!
Don’t judge me okay, very long never cam-whore liao hor 😶
I was in a 麻辣香锅 mood but as compared to Swee Choon, I would prefer this 😛 It gets cheaper each time we order! But I felt like we took more this time? Hmmmmm….
TGIF with Kai Bin & Co and OMG~ Abby’s tummy has grown so much since the last time we met! So nice to touch…hahaha!
We had Marché again because I think everyone likes the food there in general, so no one will have any objection. Maybe except me. I do love the food there, but we always ended up with a feast and I was telling the girls if I eat with them everyday like this, I might turn anorexic/bulimic some day…hahaha!
2 starter breads + caesar salad + 2 crepes + 2 rosti (no photos because I don’t like potatoes) + 1 pork knuckle 😱😱😱
纯粹 from Taiwan~!!! I chose the green tea one immediately because I am not a coffee person 😐 Chii Hian said she only managed to find ONE green tea latte after searching all the 7-11s, so she had not tried it before too! 几感动~
But we still opened up and try each others, so verdict is green tea latte is the best, followed by maybe Oolong? Cause I prefer tea! But the worst is white coffee! Too milky and smelly! I forgot Mandheling is the better one or Sumiyaki, but I think it’s the latter.
Table for 7! 😛 We gonna have another pax for our outing soon in a few months’ time! It’s a GIRL! Yayyyyyyy!!!
Brunch before Chingay practice! When nothing on the daily menu suits you, Tom Yum noodle never goes wrong 😋
I always look forward to the practice! Can’t wait for our regular weekly practice so that we can really brush up on the steps. But I think we did pretty well this week; managed to catch most of the steps (thanks to 大师指导 😏), just need to practise more to remember~ Sometimes when the music gets too fast, the actions get jumbled up again. Gotta practise till once you hear the music, you know the step, like 关着眼睛也会跳～
Mahjong night again and thank you lady luck for staying with me once again; won 70 bucks this time 😬 But still haven’t recoup back! Every time I win, I will not consider it exactly as a profit but I will be counting how much more then can recoup back my huge losses instead~ I was really so broke that time! CRY!
Finally hit JB with VJC again~! Was the last time we went in together really 7 years ago?! 😱 Managed to go in pretty fast and settled for a Taiwanese lunch! So happy to see my 豆苗 in the menu!!! Although it’s S$3+ and not as nice as the S$1.80 one of course~
Took them on a tour around City Square since Joanjoan had not been there since the revamp~ All our favourite shops are gone now 😦 But chanced upon a nice photo-taking area!
And because of this quote, I was so broke at the end of the day 😭 I seldom feel broke when I’m there, but I really did not expect that I will spend S$200 in a day! Should have brought more ringgit…
After trying her cheese tart, I was saying I might wanna buy a couple back later on. But later in KSL, I got attracted by another new tart stall, and I went for the Mao Shan Wang durian tart right away! Even though Joanjoan’s Japanese tart was more Instagramable, I think the durian tart was more YUM! Too bad I was broke in the end and could not afford another one 😭😭😭
Managed to have this for dinner after asking Joanjoan to exchange my S$2 for Ringgit 😅 It’s my favourite taro! But I forgot that they like to slice it so big over here! Must remember to ask them to slice smaller pieces next time!
Luckily I splurged on these before I was broke! It’s another new cafe and Joanjoan said it’s famous in Korea!
Suckers for cakes! 😛 Every time I’m there I can’t help but smuggle some sweet treats back because cakes are so expensive in Singapore! These were my afternoon tea snacks at work for the next 2 days…haha! The passion fruit cheese cake was nice! The chocolate cake has got peanuts on top so it’s kinda ruined.
I wanna bring more money to buy again next time!!! 😁😁😁
