Had an awesome 2 weeks in Aussie and I wish I have the time to share all the pretty pics! But I think I should finish last year’s Aussie entries and this year’s Japan trip first 😐 I have been making full use of this entire 1-month break that I hardly have time to even blog about the daily happenings~
Anyway, just something to rant. You may have noticed that all the images on my blog have turned into this ugly grey image and this is what that has gotten me so arghhhhhhh today! Apparently, Photobucket, which I have been hosting my images on since 2008 (9 freaking years!) have decided to change its stupid policy for third-party hosting! And you now have to pay $399 (USD by the way) to continue hosting your images and linking them to your blog. What a fu*ker move! And there is no warning, nothing! This is no different from deleting the whole archive from my blog, isn’t it?!
Totally 杀人放火 and ridiculous price/policy! If it has been implemented on new photos, fine, I can accept it. But now you are “deleting” all our past history from our blogs, our precious memories and etc, then telling us you gotta pay to bring back those memories. FUCKKKKKKKKKKKKK. Can totally imagine everyone boycotting Photobucket from now on (who the hell is gonna pay $399?!) but that’s still not gonna solve our problem. Seriously, seriously, ARGH! Yes, yours truly wrote a long email in, even though I don’t think they are gonna give a fuck. Hosting on WordPress for now but I still want all my archives with proper images back 😭😭😭
Enough of ranting; no one will understand how much all these mean to me anyway. Back to life after Aussie trip~ Had our first rehearsal at the platform but as usual, came with a lot of waiting and waiting and waiting…Zzzzzz. Bored max and floor was also dirty max 😒
Supposed to be a replica of a photo from few years ago that we took together with WY, but she has now grown double the size 🙊
I think this is a better replacement! This is Tiff’s cousin, always kanna bullied by
me us! 😆 She has this funny Malaysian accent (even though she is true blue Singaporean) that I can’t help but keep mimicking…HAHAHA!
Finally our turn to head down to the big stage to have a feel once again~ Ran through our performance twice and I made a terrible mistake on the first run by running to the wrong marker! 🙊 Actually I knew I was at the wrong position, but I couldn’t find the correct one (because the person leading us turned at wrong turning point) and everyone stopped moving already, so I kanchiong-spider and stopped randomly somewhere…HAHAHAHA.
Lyn kept shouting for me to come over but I didn’t hear and couldn’t find her either! All I heard was Celestine kept saying, “你不是这里的!” And I kept replying, “我知道! 不要 expose 我!” 😂😂😂 I think this is my first time dancing at the wrong position – usually I will still manage to correct myself in time, but this one seriously too kanchiong-spider already! Shall not 靠人 next time…hahaha! Second run was okay, at least! Phew~
Watching the Red Lions perform~ 难得 we get to watch it live!
Finally visited this year’s Geylang Serai! I had many opportunities to go actually, but I still waited till then to go with the rest~
Wanted to try the Thai milk tea ice-cream but it’s super small! LOL at the girl’s reaction 😂
Thought we found a bigger one which makes it more worth the price ($7), but actually only the brown cup was big, the white cup inside that is holding the ice-cream is small 😑 The Nutella ice-cream was nicer! Thai milk tea wayyyyy too sweet~
Found a victim to help us finish up the ice-cream 😝 Cause she is the well-known tam jiak gui (look at her face!!!)! HAHAHAHA. Knew it since day 1 when I met her – she finished up my Japanese cracker!!! LOL. Day 1 and not shy already 😂
Nua-ed till I got bored on the Sunday and decided to head over to Sis’s place~ Finally used up my Starbucks voucher and got myself a huge cup of hot chocolate 😐 Love-hate relationship for hot chocolate because it always save me from cramps (dear future husband, please remember this), but it also gives me sore throat.
Caught Wonderwoman finally! Love it~! Especially when the theme music comes out 😂 Still ringing in my head when I talk about it now…hahaha!
Finally finally finally tried my Sunday Folks too! Finally is becoming my favourite word because I am highly-impatient to wait for such things, especially when so many people have tried/seen/been something/somewhere except me~ Not to mention a lot of places that I wanna visit have closed down eventually and I hate that! That forever-no-chance feeling 😔
Anyhow, I have been not very fated with Sunday Folks because I went there a few times but never get to dine in due to the queue. Glad to have free weekdays that I can skip the queue and try the highly-raved waffle! 😊 So good!!! Just like Creamier‘s but this is soft-serve ice-cream~
I got tempted by the chocolate cake (because of the alcohol content!) so I decided to order a smaller waffle 😅 But upon the first bite, I suddenly recalled that I have tried this before during my first visit with Kai Bin & Co! It was too crowded that time so we only bought ice-cream in cone for takeaway plus this cake! Wow~ Didn’t know taste bud can bring back memories instantly; amazing! It was so good too, the cake 😋
The usual Tuesday hangout for cute drummer~ He looks good in his new blonde dye! No pictures because I am already seeing him every now and then on Instagram 😜
I think one of the most fulfilling things I did during this break (apart from the Aussie trip) is bringing le loveboy out on my own! It’s something I have been wanting to do but I thought my kia si Sis might not allow 😂 Now that he has already grown up + it’s school holiday + Sis has given the green light + I got the Pororo Park discount voucher from Army Open House , it’s the perfect time to execute this mission! Hehe!
But of course I had my worries too~ Like what if he starts bawling and I can’t handle, or run too fast that I can’t get catch up and he got lost? What if he wants to shit and I gotta clean his backside for him which I have no experience in? 😖 Or what if he has reached the age of refusing to go to the female toilet with me because he’s a “big boy” now, then I also can’t go into the gent with him?
Yea lots of “what ifs“, but Sis already told him he gotta clean his own backside 😂 I also set some rules and regulations for him which is to hold on to my hand at all times and not run around, plus the golden rule – “Once you cry, we are going home!” I’m not sure if it’s the rules or what, but he turned out really obedient the whole day! Obedience rating: 10/10, comparing to his usual days!
Went to his grandparents’ house to fetch him and once I stepped out of the lift, his head popped out from the door already! Hahaha! Apparently, his grandma said he has been waiting excitedly~ Vic also said he has been in very good mood since morning, like looking forward to the day 😊
But obstacle #1 – I didn’t know the way back to the bus-stop 😂 Wanted to open Google Map but surprisingly, le fat boy said he knows the way and he really brought me to the correct bus-stop! Dropped by to visit 外婆 and get free pancake!
It’s peanut butter which Sis, Bro and I all hate the max but he loves it!!! Look how happy the glutton is 😆 But I only let him have a bit of the pancake because I know this glutton will finish up everything if I don’t stop him. Told him to save it for later and thank goodness I did, cause I knew he’s gonna tell me he’s hungry later on!
Sitting obediently with his penguin bag, which I made him carry himself the whole day too (except at the park) 😊 He was so intrigued by the new digital display in the train that he kept questioning me about it. Yiyi doesn’t like the new display so Yiyi is not as fascinated by it~ Love this pic by the way; looking cute and most importantly, obedient!!!
And ta-duh~! We finally reached City Hall! But I was faced with obstacle #2 – sharing a cubicle 😐 Still not very used to having someone watch me pee, so I made him face the door, which he agrees to…hahaha!
Then came obstacle #3, which was one of my worries – he really wants to shit!!! 😱 Thank god he really cleaned himself up after I instructed him to keep wiping and wiping~ Finally done with all the business and time to continue our journey!
Passed by this Water Cycle at Marina Centre and I thought I should bring him to see, since he lovessss all these water stuff for some reason. He can stand there and watch the water go round and round for a long long time if you don’t ask him to go 😐
Indeed, he was intrigued once again and we even spent some time figuring out together where does the water gets “filled” 😅 He just loves this huge Water Cycle so much! Took a picture for him and he struck this obiang pose for me 😂😂😂
After much detour, we finally arrived at the Pororo Park! 😀 Le fatboy got so excited when he saw the park and ran super fast towards it. As expected, “pak!” Ended up flat on the ground! 😂
I think he fell really hard on his knees, cause he ran so fast + the ground so hard + he so fat, so the impact must be big~ He kept rubbing his knee and gave a painful face, but yet didn’t dare to shed a tear because of my golden rule…HAHAHA. I think if Sis was there, he would have started bawling and asked for 抱 or sayang, but not in Yiyi’s parenting rule!
Parenting rule #1 – If you wanna do something you’re told not to, then you gotta suffer the consequences. You wanna run, I let you run, but if you fall, you don’t come and cry to me.
Parenting rule #2 – 自己跌倒自己爬 – something that I was taught since young.
I mean of course I feel xim tia (心疼) to see his pitiful face while he was rubbing his knee and couldn’t get up, but this is literally a painful lesson that he has to learn. If not next time every time he faces an obstacle or setback, just cry for help??? How long can we help them for, right? So I made him sit on the floor until he could get up, then we walked over to the park~
My first visit to this place and I was pretty looking forward too! Cause I wanna take photo with Pororo 😆
Isaac was stuck at this Hinoki pool for a long time because he said it’s new~ It’s a bit like playing at the beach, but the “sand” is all these little Hinoki bricks that is supposed to have “an aromatic and relaxing benefits on the mind the body“.
Went to the next station – the supermarket and Isaac kinda made friend with an Indian boy, who later tried to follow him everywhere 😂 Then I made them tidy up the place by pretending that they are staff doing stock up before the supermarket opens…HAHAHA. They really had fun sorting out the plastic fruits and vegetables! Don’t think they are even so enthu when cleaning up their own toys at home 🙊 The park should thank me eh!
Next stop – the ball pool!
Taking a break in the pool of balls~
Then it was time for the train ride that he was waiting for! His new friend insisted on sitting beside him 😆
Then it was finally the Pororo Sing-along that I was looking forward to! Finally can see the cute Pororo and take picture with him! Hehe!
Pororo is so cuteeeeeeeee~!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The timid cat did not dare to go into the playground on his own, so he kept asking me to crawl along with him 😑 Imagine me crawling around that playground with minimal space, yet trying to catch up with him! Thank goodness he made some friends at the playground later and even formed a “gang” with boss and assistant boss (Isaac).
They were supposed to protect their “base” in the playground from the enemies – kids that they don’t like…hahahaha! So amusing! The “boss“, who is some older kid was ordering them around. So they just kept running round and round with unlimited supply of energy! Finally I can take a break and just sit down and watch 😝
Went for next Pororo Sing-along session because Isaac wanted to go together with his gang. Initially the staff said it’s the same thing, but luckily we went for it again because this time there is Isaac’s favourite Crong! 😁
Supposed to be durian session with Trinity but everywhere we called ran out of stock 😔 Really craved for it so much ever since I was in Aussie! Changed to ice-cream session in the end and nope, I did not choose Mao Shan Wang~ Rum & Raisin is still my #1 favourite for ice-cream, especially Udders’!
Had a debate about the recent Oxley saga. Oh well, at the end of the day, we all know who’s gonna win anyway, so I don’t understand why we bothered to debate so much 🙄
Back to office to brief le new colleague and made salad for myself again! Miss it! And settles my dislike of lunching alone outside~
Finally dragged my ass to renew my yoga package and had my first Hot Vinyasa after 1.5 month. That explains why I am super broke now 😭 Not working + Mum’s birthday + trip + yoga~
Accomplished another on the to-do list on Friday – sing cheap K! Haven’t sung for so long because the promos are always fot weekdays afternoon only~ Finally got the chance for $8 nett K with free-flow ice-cream, tibits and drinks! 😍 Miss the soy bean milk there!
Sang 2 hours of K followed by another 2 hours! 爽快! 随传随到~ 👍
TGIF night at Timbre+ again and I got myself a free mug of Jim Beam Highball! It was some dice game and if you get 2 same number (out of 2 dice), you get a free drink 😅 The girl selling the drink was so much more excited for me that she exclaimed so loudly, while I was still kinda in shock and surprise because I usually don’t have much luck in such thing~
Started my Saturday with my last organic passion fruit from Mommeyyyyy’s farm! Miss eating it everyday 😔
Finally tried the cute Minion potatoes from Mac! Everyone has been posting it on social media while I was in Aussie, luckily it’s still available in SG when I’m back 😁
First full-dress rehearsal! Can finally reveal the
ugly costumes for this year. But my pants was obviously 1 size bigger and the supplier just refused to change or alter for me 😒 Asked me to fold instead. Wanna do just do a good job lah! Seriously~ That’s why I always rather bring it elsewhere to alter.
Since we were told 有什么就穿什么, and I always follow the rules (rightttt), I wore only my top then. Kanna called the Japanese porn star as a result 😒 Cause I’m supposed to be Japanese male this year~
