i'm a girl who have stepped into the unknown called work and decided that schooling is better. i also have a propensity to go crazy over fried chicken wings and simply love to squeeze and over-feed my obese hamsters. my blog is a mode for expressing my love for food, movies, travel and shopping!

haha grabbed the photo of bryan's blog, didn't have any photos coz i didn't bring camera or phone, so will have to wait for siyu & lil to upload the photos we took using their cameras... love this photo! the clique was having their big, long-awaited seafood dinner (i was having a miserable kway teow coz i dun eat seafood)... remember we kept laughing coz tau looks like he has a long neck!
just came back from malaysia, really preferred my phuket trip... went to fraser hill, although i took good photos of the scenary & the weather was cooling, there were alot of mosquito (couldn't sleep at all, they kept weng-ing at our ears at night) & there was nothing to do there (was bored to death)... later went to pangkor (another beach area), also nothing much to do & things weren't cheap there, so i was just in the hotel watching starmovies all day... last stop at malacca, stopped for 3 hrs, shopped a bit for new year clothes... really happy to be back in singapore...
didn't do well for my exams, expected better for some subjects & worse for others... so overall it was just give & take... can't say i'm looking forward to the new school sem...

just came back from phuket... so lucky there was nice weather throughout & no tsunami... the people were really friendly (not discriminating like other countries) & had a great time with the clique there... got a bit burnt though i'm not really tanned... & transvestites were prettier than girls there... things were not cheap, they really hike up the price so it was a bit cheaper than singapore...
going to malaysia tmr, so will have to do my bidding there :(... dun even know when my results are coming out... lil did quite well, though she's not happy with her c... haha i dun mind having her results!

i dun know why, i'm at this weird state with my fringe... it just looks funny, like one turf of hair in the middle of my forehead... well now i know, i can either keep it short or long, no in the middle...

yesterday went to marina square with mum & sis for lunch at moonfish... sigh really love their chicken primavera... delicious! sigh thinking of it now makes me hungry all over again... i love pasta!
watched 3 neeedles by lucy liu & many others, but she was the only prominent actress i remembered... it was about 3 different stories in 3 different continents, all about aids... it was very realistic, but too depressing in my opinion... really show the true side of human nature... & there were so many sex scenes it should be r21 instead of m18... oh well, that's why i prefer to watch comedy... more worth your money to get light-hearted, then to get scared or depressed...
oooo 1 week left to go phuket! i'm so excited! 1st clique trip & without parents, more independence... & i hope i dun spend too much there!

lil came over to my house on thurs to borrow winter clothes... most of them were too big for her, lucky she'll be piling up anyway... that stupid girl drop museli bar into her ribena & tot it was an insect in her cup, scared the hell out of me, coz when i poured for her, there wasn't anything inside the cup...
met up with my sis after her seminar yesterday, had dinner at the soup spoon... watched happy feet later at cine (yes it's been a long time too)... haha really enjoyed the movie, the amigos were so funny! the soundtrack's nice too, kind of like a musicale plus comedy kind of thing...
and i really like my hairstyle... it's growing out of the edginess (u know the just cut blunt end feeling)... my sis thinks it nice too... hope my fringe will not be poking into my eyes during the phuket trip...

uno beef house
yesterday, my family went to try uno beef house, which was advertised in the life newspaper. It is part of a coffee shop in toa payoh and the reviews were really good, but to me, it was both good and bad.
we waited more than an hour or so for our food to come, because they cook on the spot, so as not to let the food go stale. however, by the time the food came, i wasn't really hungry anymore. definitely not a place i would go for a takeaway. partially it's good, because u know everything's fresh, on the other hand, the waiting time's a bit ridiculous. seeing that the queue is so long, i think it's smarter to cook before the demand comes. anyway, when we got our food, we heard the neighbouring table said their food had to wait 2 hours.
one of the most important thing to me is cleanliness and the place was filty. i took a picture of the 4 tiles right next to my chair and you can see toothpick, tissue, cockroach (which i just killed coz i hate them and it was running all around) and fly. the seating area's outside the coffee shop & for a public area, it was digusting, litter everywhere. there were also plenty of flies, which kept landing on the table. no to mention the mynahs and crows.
however the food was delicious (if you overlook the waiting time & surroundings). the tenderloin $10, ribeye $9 and fish & chips $5. the steak was served with their special fried mashed potato ball, which was creamy & buttery, i really savoured every bite. the beef was served on a hotplate and was very tender (the tenderloin was nicer than the ribeye), albeit a bit undercooked (i ordered medium). my sis ate the fish & chip (doesn't come with the mashed potato ball) and she liked it because the fish was really smooth. really good standard and u can not find good steak for $10 and under. we also ordered the soup, which tasted like campbell and costs $2, didn't really think it was worth it.
somewhere i would go again, but definitely in between meals for shorter waiting time (we arrived about early 5). don't think i would go anytime soon, the cockroach, flies and birds are still fresh in my mind.

was so embarrassed today can... i skipped lunch coz my paper was during lunch time... and my stomach kept growling during my paper! i was so embarrassed... somemore it's biological, can't control and it was growling so loudly... i had my paper in a classroom, which mean it was very small, so it was kind of obvious it was me, despite the fact i kept pretending it wasn't me...
