Wasn’t the usual Saturday but I tried to make it one to look forward to by satisfying my crave! Thank you Joanjoan and sister for accompanying me for lunch at Saveur 😚
Bee tea for bee from Mojo monster!
Can ignore the painting and words~
Only took it because I like the ❤!
Started with mushroom soup and I like it! Kept ‘ummmmmm‘-ing each time I drink 😂
The signature pasta which is like a must-have at Saveur~ But I think their standard dropped 😔 Not as nice as last time… I used to love it a lot!
And finally satisfying my foie gras crave!!! It’s a weird craving because I just suddenly had this craving (for the very first time) one fine night and started searching for cheap and good foie gras, which is why we ended up at Saveur..haha!
We shared all the other dishes except for this foie gras, which I insisted on having one myself 😋 It’s both Mojo and her sister’s first foie gras experience and they love it! Hehe!
The mains weren’t very impressive; the duck confit was not bad but wasn’t the best I have eaten.
And we all felt that the sea bass seems to be lacking of some gravy…hmmmmm. It’s just a seasoned sea bass with some potatoes; not much taste.
But since it’s a food porn day, we gotta feed the camera well before feeding ourselves! Training to be food bloggers 😝
Our dessert – salted caramel lava cake came in a weird presentation and we were figuring out the best way for a picture while the ice-cream was melting rapidly 😂
This was the angle I found but still not very fantastic~
So I told the girls to poke the cake so that the lava can fill up the empty space on the plate…
But it looked disgusting somehow, like a toilet bowl in need of some maintenance…LOL! Officially failed food bloggers!
It was a really full meal, making us really lazy~ Luckily the sisters had booked a room along the same street, so we could nua all the way till reporting time!
Having fun cam-whoring while Peilian was busy checking in! Hahaha!
Ambassador of Hotel Kai! Machiam I am staying also 😂
Went up to check out the room and it reminds me of the hotels in Hong Kong…hmmmmm. A bit like capsule hotels. It’s really small so I couldn’t even take a full view of the room…haha! Can only take parts of it, but the hotel believes that small is more 😊
Shelf with smart concept to save space!
Right beside the shelf is the basin~
No full view of the bed either because I didn’t have enough space to take one even after attempting to take from the bathroom! 😅
It’s a double-decker bed though (they have 1 big bed kind too), with 1 TV for each bed~ But the remote control can only control 1 TV, which means you still gotta fight over the channel! 😂
Despite the space constraint, Peilian was very satisfied with the room and in fact loves it a lot! Both of them kept saying the beds and pillows are really comfy~ Mojo even dozed off a while I think!
Guess what’s this?!
Can’t believe I was having so much fun with their rubbish bin 😂😂😂
Peilian really loves the room so much that the Little Miss Grumpy’s mood was completely lifted! And she started saying that she likes me and that I am allowed to shower with her…HAHAHAHA!!! I was like, “But I am not comfortable with it!” 😶😶😶
Really still feel uncomfortable about being naked in front of anyone (except maybe your own boyfriend)! I was telling them how horrified I was at the Korea sauna where all the ladies were walking around naked. I think I am the only one not comfortable with it because both of them are 101% fine with that 😖
Nua-ed till we finally dragged ourselves to JAS for one last big day~ And off to F1 pit in smelly tee! 😝 Makes it extra meaningful for this year’s performance!
Skipped the dinner again because it’s the last day for pictures!!! I hadn’t even taken any photos with any float except my own~
Spotted some familiar faces and I decided to photobomb! 😄
And then we got photobombed by a NDP auntie 😐
With our beloved Uncle Tan!
The annual photo that Lyn will request for…hahaha!
Looking at our past photos makes us realise that Uncle Tan has aged… And becoming skinnier and skinnier 😔
But he’s still always so positive and cheerful! Never once seen him 发脾气 before! Respectable ✌
Thought the wind’s gonna mess up my hair but it turned out not bad! I like that wind-blowing effect! Hahaha! Photosssss credit to Eric!
Took the chance to ask Eric help me take some more professional shots with my float! 三两下功夫就拍得酱美 👍
With Mr Photographer!
Leng Leng said she wanna make up for the failed selfies 😂
Full length shot!
With the angel! 👼
With the devil 😝
Too much 自摸？ 😶
More pics before she kanna chased away to 开工~
Having fun with Lyn’s “light sabre“! 😂
Geh geh wanna be inside…
Borrowing Lyn’s phone to selfie because I like her camera! 😝
Finally a shot with this busy woman!
And then this siao charboh rushed out shouting my name again! Almost did not have the chance to take photo with her this year because their group is always on standby by the time we reached 😦
Chanced upon WY’s cute mum and aunt! Took 418729137912 shots because the photographer-auntie was a perfectionist…
I was determined to take a picture with the cute wipe-table Japanese boy but he looks so scared –CRY!!!!!!!!– Like can’t wait to run away 💔💔💔 Why you break oneesan‘s heart~~~
Annual pic with the 慈祥-looking ex-in-charge! So glad to still see him here because Mickey-san did not come back this year, so we couldn’t take an annual pic together this year 😔
Still felt that I had not taken enough pictures, so I dragged Mojo around to take photos with me. End up I kept bumping into people and she had to take photo for me instead of with me 😶
With Ah Eng auntie!
She asked me to hold the umbrella..so cute 😅
No time to QC my messy hair because I scared he chase me off…haha~
Nice shot with SK and KL to make up for the ugly shadowy one the previous night~ The Malay auntie who took this shot is awesome!
So we got her to take another for us with the same background! But she said, “The background is nice, but got someone (sitting) not very nice behind.” 😂
Trying to siam the unglam auntie~
Found 2 of my favourite 老师s 💖
As the night falls~
In love with Chingay!!!
Found a very free Leng Leng walking around so I dragged her around to be our photographer 😂😂😂 Yay! Can take photos with different floats together!
Spot Uncle Tan trying to photo-bomb! HAHAHA! So cute~
Peilian finally joined us after being released from kidnapper SL! She came back with a grumpy face, just like Mojo the previous night when she got kidnapped too…hahaha!
Can I blend in as 三姐妹？:P
Looking retarded in our dance poses! 😂
Peilian’s leg dropped down first 😆
I was just looking for 教授 for our annual shot and then he came to me and said, “Eh 你今年没有找我拍照啊？你每年都跟我拍的嘛。” Hahahahaha! 少不了你，老朋友！:)
The 3 hunks
With 龟公 again but got photobombed!
龟公 Desmond trying to blend in with youngsters? 😆
Here comes the kidnapper!
LOL at Peilian’s expression! 😂
With our float~! ❤
Tattoos for the night! 😀
Group STAR SHINE!
Was about to 出场 when Veron and gang came over to take pictures together~ They have joined another group this year to try out. Super blur because we were moving off!
Try to even find me in this 😂
I was pretty proud of myself for the performance because I made no mistake again and I think I did better than parade 1! 😀 But something drove me really mad halfway through the performance and I couldn’t stop replaying what happened in my mind! Luckily I did not get distracted by the thoughts and kept on trying to put on a smile during the performance, even though it became harder than ever.
I was just shocked beyond words when SL, who was positioned in front of me, actually walked BACKWARDS to tell me, “Eh..Tony Tan leh” at the VIP area! Firstly, it’s really, really unprofessional for a performer to walk AWAY from your position, let alone TALK during a performance! Secondly, it’s the VIP area – the area where you are most likely to be filmed! Even if you won’t be caught on camera, it’s still unprofessional because the audience did not PAY to come and watch you TALK! They came to see a parade that is supposed to be proper and not having people chatting away! Thirdly, IT’S JUST TONY TAN! What’s the big fuss?!?! I have seen him how many times at NDP! If it’s Lee Min Ho then yea, maybe you can try telling me. Zzzzzzz!
Seriously ANGRY! I even had to push her forward because if not we would be 2 obvious persons standing there talking. I’m sure it was caught by many audience, even if it wasn’t caught by the camera. It’s just pure un-professionalism and I can’t take it. I don’t care you are which NDP auntie’s daughter, I had to say my piece because it’s something that I condemn. And I will condemn such people from joining my group in the future too. Yes, I am a perfectionist on the performing ground; I may not always be perfect but I will never stop trying to be perfect as long as I know I am performing for the audience out there and not for myself.
Enough of rant. Here’s a credit to Shrine for spotting me and capturing it on video! Hehe! It’s weird and awkward watching yourself dance, but yet there is this sense of 自豪 there, like fuckyeah, I did it!!! All the challenging moves that I had been struggling with!
Had our humble 庆功宴 again after the parade with free-flow beer and drinks!
Love Japanese bento!
I almost have no supporter this year because Limin couldn’t make it in the end… But thankfully Eric gave me his tickets and I could invite another friend! Gave the opportunity to Shrine and his dad for some bonding time and it was their first Chingay experience! 😀
Shrine said he really enjoys the show and doesn’t mind watching it again, but I think his dad still prefers watching it on TV 😅 Oh..and he thought my tattoos are real! HAHAHA.
Thank you, my friend! Not a fantastic videographer but it was still a precious moment captured. My 台下十年功 all in that video 🙂
There are some things that may not mean a lot to others, but it means a lot to me. There are also some things that may seem insignificant, but I do mind a lot. In fact, I believe anyone will. I wish I am titanium too.
