We're going to the Zoo, Zoo, Zoo!

Grandparents!
 Brought grandparents and Auntie to the Zoo today! They've been wanting to see the Pandas ever since they heard about them, so I took a day off and brought them to the Zoo!

Checking out the timings for panda viewing
Tickets are at $20/adult, $10/senior citizen, addition of  $5/pax for unlimited tram rides, and an additional $5/pax for a 15min viewing of the giant pandas.

About the Pandas... Each viewing slot is 15mins, at $5/pax, maximum of 200 people per slot. You have to get there 5mins before the scheduled time to queue up, to walk in to the gallery/forest, check your tickets and give you a brief intro. The thing is, Singaporeans love queuing. Seriously, they started queuing like 10-15mins beforehand. I was prepared to do all the queuing anyway because my grandparents can't walk/stand for long.

Entrance to the Giant Panda Forest
Finally got in! Haha. It was a visitor's birthday so everyone sang him a birthday song. You get free entrance to the Zoo on your birthday!

Red Panda
Grandparents were wondering if there will be any red pandas in there too, because everytime they saw a panda in China's zoo, there was always an enclosure of red pandas nearby! And there they were! 2 red pandas! I think I love them more than the pandas themselves. So much furrier, cuter, more active.

Panda! (don't know which one)
Everyone was clamoring to see the pandas. So crowded. Haha. One of them was awake and pacing about, while the other slept.

Sleeping Panda

Pensive Panda. 

Grandparents and Auntie!
Took the tram around the Zoo. Stopped to take a walk in the rainforest trail. It's cooling, so grandparents wouldn't be too warm.

Lemur!

Mousedeer!
The mousedeer is so small! I think I scared it by going so close. HAHA

Grandma and a parrot!

:D

Grandparents and the white tiger!
Haha I had fun bringing them around. We left the zoo at about 1-2pm? Didn't walk much of the zoo, only saw the stuff Grandparents wanted to see. Hahaha. =D Fun day!

What do I want....?

Wow. Haven't been updating this space in a damn long while. I guess tons of stuff happened? Haha. Oh and we went to Taiwan! Super fun. I will *try* to blog about it. But I can't seem to find the time to do so. Bleh.

Anyway, Christmas is rolling around the corner and everyone's asking everyone else... "What do you want?" It becomes a very difficult question to answer because my birthday is so near Christmas. And I have also run out of ideas on what to buy for people. 

I suppose the older you get, the more things you've bought for each other, the lesser your choices become for that person. Hahahaha.

And I don't even know what I want. All the things I want, are big expenses. So, not exactly gift material. So what now? 

I can't even list anything out. Shoes? Bags? Clothes? OMG WHAT?!!?! I can't think. 

Omg. Got a scare when I lifted my head to look at the ceiling in a moment of frustration. A lizard on my ceiling. HAHAHAHAHA. =/ 

Oh Sis just flew off for Europe about an hour ago. Bf is going to NZ the day after tomorrow. I want to go on a holiday too! Why do I have so little annual leave days?!!?! Dammit. I want to be able to apply for leave as and when and jet off on a whim. Hahaha. I'm starting to sound like her omg. 

Wow I've typed a chunk of rubbish. Haven't had the urge to blog in such a long while man. Those eggs Benedict have been taking up top spot for too long. 

Bye.

ted 2012

Img from IMDB
So Ted finally hit the shores of SG! Caught it today at AMKhub with bf! I was actually worried that some scenes might have been cut off, but it doesn't really seem like so (but I might be wrong).

Img from IMDB
I loved the movie. It had me laughing in fits at all the stupid things they say. "Hello? 911! This guy took my teddy bear!" The friendship they formed... I wished my toys were real too.

Brunch!

Eggs Benedict!
First time having brunch! Haha. Went to Graze @ Rochester Park with Kar and Eu. Omg was so excited to finally eat poached eggs after watching Julie & Julia eons ago. The place is very big and airy, very suitable for chillin' out. The staff are nice and pretty attentive, other than the fact that they didn't top up our iced water. Lol. But they were pretty quick to come when you need assistance. Food came quite speedily.

THE FOOD. It's quite good (because I have no benchmark for this). But according to Eu, the eggs benedict at Wild Honey is better, but Wild Honey does not have smoked salmon with the eggs benedict. Hurr. And to think this small-looking portion made me feel so full! *licks lips* Maybe Wild Honey's next up for brunch! Or someplace else...?

Revamp!

I've been thinking of revamping my room these days, and I've started! Baby steps, baby steps. Did some shuffling of the position of the furniture today, threw out tons of stuff last week. The only thing is deciding where to place the TV, then I'd be able to start sourcing for the exact pieces of furniture. Oh there's also the thing about my bed. Hmmm. I hope everything goes smoothly! =D

Rainy days

Been very lethargic lately =( Need to resume some form of activity soon. Ugh. Anyway, today's weather was pretty much crap. Drove to work this morning! Satisfied because I don't have to walk to the MRT station in the rain (even if I have an umbrella). Had fun at work because some of my colleagues came back to do some work! Love them. Super fun bunch of colleagues. Ended work and went to meet him! Had a lazy day in. Oh we watched 21 Jump Street! Omg I couldn't stop laughing. It was a pretty good show! Went  up to the 24th floor to watch the fireworks from the NDP rehearsal together. =D

I just hope that everything goes well. =))

Eat, eat and EAT!

Ohai interwebs! Been too long since I've last updated. Hurr. I think I say that in almost all the entries. HAHAHA. Been eating and eating tons. D: Seriously need to lose some weight. 

Been decreasing my online presence lately. Not much to do online nowadays anyway? Realllyyyyy need to hasten the editing process for Nana's wedding pictures. *stress*

Feeling so cranking these few days. Has the stress at work been getting to me? Probably. All's good so far but not particularly golden. Oh and I've been confirmed! No sign of a pay raise though. I wonder how much bonus do new staff get. Hmmm. Do we get an increment too? =D 

Just went to Watami for dinner with Mum, Sis, Bro and bf! Think we ordered tons. But food was nice! My hair has some serious smell issues right now though. =( 

Wah I don't remember the last time I blogged like that. LOL. Okay bye.

The Avengers

The Avengers (imdb)
Soooooo... WE WATCHED THE AVENGERS!!!! Omg the excitement. Hahaha. But then again, I've only watched Iron Man and Captain America. Always didn't have the time to watch the others. =(


Managed to get pretty good seats!! And Eueu kept going like "THORRR THORRR!!!" Hahaha. Th'oreal. =X

Sorry, couldn't resist.
I liked the movie! Enjoyable. The Hulk has quite awesome comical timing. Iron Man's sarcasm. Captain America is hawwwt. Black Widow... I'd kill to have her body. Hahahaha. 

Worth a watch in my opinion. Though don't trust me. I've only watched Iron Man and Captain America. Need to catch up with my movies list. Hurhurhur.

24th @ Sushi Kanazawa

Celebrated his 24th at Sushi Kanazawa for dinner after work!! First time back here after the establishment was renamed from Sushi Kikuzawa to the current Sushi Kanazawa. Sounds confusing? The head chef/boss went back to Japan, so the other chef took over the restaurant. Because we remember seeing the current head chef/boss the previous 2 times we came. =D Read previous entry here (better pictures!)

Standard was a good as before, so no worries! 

Chef at work.
Aburi Amaebi Mentai sushi.
THIS IS... OMG HEAVEN. Soooooo goood!! I think I had like 3 of these, at least. Didn't bring my camera so I made do with my iPhone's. Haha. Only took pictures of some of the more interesting (those I LOVE) ones.

Minced tuna belly and fugu.
Yeah... about the fugu. I don't really see the appeal in this fish. Just gives me the jitters every time I eat it. Hahaha. It seriously tastes like rubberband to me. Okay I just Google-ed and I'm not the only one who thinks fugu tastes like rubberband. HAHAHAHA.

BEST.TAMAGO.EVER (at least in sg)
Best tamago I've tried in SG, so far. Really love it. It's not bright yellow like those you get from Sakae Sushi or Sushi Tei, but it has this greyness about it. DON'T UNDERESTIMATE THE TAMAGO. Seriously damn good please.

Salmon!
I think that was Aburi Shake (seared salmon). Haha. I don't actually remember eating much of the raw salmon sushi because I LOVE ANYTHING ABURI!! Anything blowtorched, is love.

Onigiri.
Bf ordered this onigiri even after we were super full, just to try a traditional onigiri. =.=

Happy birthday bf!

Random Things

Some random pictures I discovered in my iPhone after transferring them over to the laptop.
Egg Mayo Sandwich and Coffee
 Awesome breakfast to wake up to.

Grapefruit Essential Oil.
Grapefruit essential oil from iHerb.com. But apparently it's toxic to cats. Zzzz. Fine. I smell lor. Open then cap and sniff like an addict. HAHAHAHA. But apparently quite many things that I like are toxic to cats. Like tea tree oil. And grapefruit. =.=

Art Science Museum
Went to the iLight exhibition again! Major love. But didn't managed to get super fantastic shots. Hahaha. I liked the one that was in the room with lights that looked like rainfall. <3 very romantic.

Colored Merlion
Also from the iLight exhibition. The projection of the light made the Merlion look painted. Very cool. OH I REMEMBER MY FAV EXHIBIT! The one with a projection into the water about this prehistoric animal living in the water. The projection was SO LIFE LIKE. Amazing.

Strawberry icecream
Something for the walk home from the mrt.

MY NEW PILLOW
 Mum bought this amazing pillow for me. Because my current pillow was almost completely flat. THIS IS SO NICE! Felt just like the pillows from MBS. Had an awesome sleep.

Worst Jap food stall from TTSH's Kopitiam
Finally found out why there's never a queue at that stall. The food sucks. Serious. I didn't believe it and bought ramen to try... but... =(

Choc chip icecream! 
Something sweet to end the day with.

Handwashing techniques.
 Had to remember this for some handwashing audit. Hahahahaha. Passed with flying colors, obviously. I always forget step 4 though. So weird.

Ummmmm.
 Hahahhahaha.

New stroller!!
Their new stroller finally arrived and we went to collect it from Mich! Super love it even though it's not exactly the one I wanted. Hahaha. But similar. So no problems. This can fit all three of them! And they can now sit upright. Downside is that I can't fetch them in the car if I'm using this stroller because the carriage is attached to the frame, unlike the other one. But it's alright! I can push them around the neighborhood, or think of something else. =D

181 The Home of Seafood Restaurant

Seafood and meat!
So.... Eueu, Kar and I went to eat eat eat!!!

Greens!

Hotpot and hotplate. LOVE!
We've been looking for the charcoal bbq type of buffet, but the one at Punggol was too far away. So we made do with this. Hotpot with hotplate! It wasn't too bad actually. I think I liked the stuff from the hotplate more than the stuff from the hotpot. But then again, you can't exactly cook veggies on the hotplate, right? The veggies selection is mind-blowing. Give them a try if you can!
