It’s the Christmas season again! The season of giving and receiving, and the season with lots of chocolates to eat! 😛
One of the annual
gift goodies exchange that cannot be missed is of course with Kai Bin & Co! Everyone was excited to give their gifts to each other! 😄 I think Limin’s deserve a solo pic because she always puts in the most effort to design her gift!
My love at first sight was the pink rabbit, whereas Shuning’s love at first sight was this weird chicken… 怪人怪 taste! And she was so obsessed with it that she named him ‘帅鸡’ and started doing all sorts of model poses for him 😓
Out for more photos with the pretty Christmas deco before the mum-to-be left! The Christmas tree at Orchard Central is in Tiffany & Co colour theme!!! 😍 Tiffany & Co > Pandora forever!
Still remember last year we tried so hard just to take wefie with the tree at Raffles City..hahaha! This year we seem more skilled!
Made breakfast for myself and le pig brother one fine morning! Ham & cheese toast! Because I wanted to eat Toastbox‘s but it’s kinda overpriced. Oh it’s a bit brown because I used wholegrain bread (yuck)!
Finally going back to Muay Thai! Excited!!! Definitely miss the gloves and pads~ But it’s a different training place so the regime is totally different… Not as tiring leh 😦 And I dislike how we gotta start from basic. I keep wanting to punch Mojo because I am dying to really punch and kick on pads! Hahaha! Poor Mojo!
If it’s any other day, I guess I will just have to lan lan let it pass
again. But because with all the excitement and expectation built up, it’s a different story. It’s not just any other day anymore. Sigh. Nobody will understand that kind of disappointment except the one who has been looking forward to it. And of course the one who has expected the same level of excitement and at least a 1-hour.
Second practice at F1 but the rain totally caught us by surprise! Mojo and I were shocked by the heavy rain when we exited from the station and we had to brace through the storm with my small umbrella with a small hole 😅 But it still saved us okay!!! Too bad there was nothing to save my golden shoes –CRY!!!–
Almost had to practise in the rain because we did not bring ponchos. Luckily they decided to hold it under the tentage…phew~ I mean it’s not like I haven’t danced in the rain before, but not when I’m in my new-favourite shoe and when I am going out after that!
We still managed to head out to practise after the rain stopped, or rather, became lighter, since it was still drizzling a bit~ Usually I would love to have longer practice, but because my shoes were wet and it was so humid and gao wei, plus I had an appointment to rush to, I was dying to go off. But in the end they overran by 30 minutes so we went through rounds and rounds of practice before we were finally released!
Rushed off for my much-needed massage!!! My butt was aching the previous week after working out too much 😑 Almost screamed in pain when my masseur was trying to save my ass, literally. So sad that they are discontinuing the package thing so I gotta reduce my massage frequency now~
Anyway, received a super good news before my massage – my phone is fixed!!! I was so damn sad when I called the previous night and they said it can’t be fixed. In the end they mixed up the phone, so mine is the one that can be fixed! Hahaha! Didn’t even wanna bargain anymore; just take my money! $120 poorer now but at least I got back my precious stuff inside.
I considered for a while whether to repair it or not, since there are lots of complications for Note 4. I even asked the staff at the repair shop for advice, and he told me to get a new phone instead. (So honest!) But I know deep down I wanted to repair it and get back my stuff, I just needed someone to agree with my decision. Yea so in the end Yixuan, who came back to freelance for us, convinced me that since there’s 2 months warranty after the repair, even if the phone really died again after that, I am only spending $60 a month for the phone and yet I get to retrieve back my stuff! Haha! Brilliant~! That’s the kind of answer I needed 😂
Oh I realised while I was trying to find recommendations for phone repairs, I couldn’t find much reviews online. In the end I had to roam Sim Lim and almost landed my phone in a 黑店 previously raided by the police for too much complaints in CASE 😱 The shop that I went in the end has got a few good reviews online, but mostly for screen repair. Nevertheless, I would highly recommend them for any other phone repairs too!
I mean my camera was spoiled after the repair, but thankfully I checked it on the spot. I think the staff naturally think that it was already spoiled when I sent it in, but I was really still taking photos the night before it died. Yea so in the end they changed a new camera for me, even though the guy did say that they got no choice because my phone was dead when I sent in, so they couldn’t check whether the camera was okay or not and there’s no point arguing who is responsible for it too 😕
But I really took photos that night… How can be so 巧 camera and phone die at the same time right? If my camera had died, I would have sent in long ago. Why wait until my phone died? Hmmmm. Well, at least they replaced one for me, so I must say that their service is really pretty good. I was standing there waiting for my phone and there were many customers coming to repair their phones. The prices are all quite reasonable to me, and they are really pretty honest, I must say, given how the dimple guy actually advised me not to repair it even though he could earn that 120 bucks. So look for the dimple guy if you need to fix your phone!!! Hahaha!

Rushed off for NDP retreat because there was a sudden change in the schedule timing and my target to reach just in time for dinner became screwed! 😱 Yes, my only reason for going was the dinner, which was also my first meal of the day! Mad hungryyyyyyyy~!!! Thank goodness Leng Leng managed to kope a lot of food for me…hehe!
This year’s retreat was so much worse than last year. Not only was the place even more ulu and disgusting, the activities were blah too. I don’t even know whose idea it was to go to a wholesale market in the first place, let alone going at the wrong timing when there’s not a single person except the staff who were busy loading and unloading goods…Zzzzzz. There was simply nothing to see and we look like a bunch of jokers there!
The only thing that I could entertain myself with were the vegetables, and I was caught on candid camera captioned as – “lady boss inspecting goods“. But obviously Leng Leng was the lady boss in the picture right?! So much aura there! 😂😂😂
Next activity was a hike up the Mount Faber. I think this was one of the unplanned activity, that’s why it was not as bad. It was windy up there; wish we had more time to just sit by the Henderson Waves and relax though~
So the next activity, according to the plan, was the fishery port. Yes, so after seeing vegetables, now we are gonna see fishes! Yayyyyyy. 😑 But guess what, we were chased off even before seeing a single fish because the place requires a permit to enter. Like seriously, shouldn’t whoever who had planned this do some research first? We could have spent the time chilling at Faber Peak!!!
So in the end Mr Chan saved the night by suggesting Timbre+. Goodbye vegetables and fishes! Hello to music and booze!!! 😍 Not the same band but it’s okay! Anything is better than going to the market at such hour.
I thought last year‘s tiny room with cockroach on bed was bad enough, but this year was really so much worse. The room was a major turn-off, and so were the beds. I guess I am really not the camp kind of person. This place is more suitable for camps than retreats. Whatever happened to the Hotel Re! standard kind of retreat 😪 Guess it’s never gonna happen. Or even if it happens, it will be too late~
For now, 100% no regrets for missing a large part of this retreat! Cause I know whatever we say is not gonna change anything anyway. So why open your mouth when people are not even open to your constructive comments/feedback, tio boh? I am not a puppet ready to be shot down; I am a bee with my own wings~ 🐝🐝🐝
