Glitter Words


Left the house at 10am for my appointment with FaveNails at CityLink. Met up with dar, at Suntec City Mall, an hour later.

Again, we couldnt decide what to have for lunch. Firstly, i dint want to overspend for lunch as dar's giving me a dinner treat tonight and secondly, i dint want to venture too far out for lunch as i had something planned for dar at 3.30pm. He He Heh.

So, we settled for cheap eats at Suntec's Basement FC. Foodcourts always remind me of school canteen food. Yukky yuck yucks!
I had a katsu don while dar had fried chicken ramen. Stole dar's fried chicken while he was on the phone, i thought it tasted like soft shell crabs. Ha Ha. My katsu don was so full of onions! Double Yucks!



Presented dar with my handmade artwork. All but the scrapbook, which was purchased from Prints, CityLink, isnt handmade. =P

This took me one whole day to do! My butt was practically glued to the chair 24/7. Came up with this scrapbook gift idea about 7 months ago. Since then, i've been jotting down every single thing, in full detail, (from what we ate, to where we went, to what we celebrated or did together) inside my organizer. It also explains why i have the tendency to take lotsa pictures and camwhore. Tedious but all for the sake of turning this gift idea into a reality.

Photos were developed from Kodak while art materials (glitter, shiny paper, markers, sequins etc) were purchased from ArtFriend.

The glitter was a huge mess. So was the chalk. Cutting letters from aluminium foil aint an easy task either. In fact, i procrastinated till the very last day, to get this scrapbook done, as i dint have the courage to lift my marker, and start drawing my mapped out designs! There were errors here and there, such as 2 spelling mistakes, LOL, and at that point in time, i really wished there was an undo button for me to press. Like Photoshop. Ha Ha.

But in the end, all things worked for good and i was indeed one ultra satisfied supergirl.

Presenting to you my artwork! He He Heh. Pammie the future creative design director. Muahahaha. Tell me if its nice!























After lunch, we spent the next 2 hours shopping and chilling out at Suntec. Presented to dar, again, my brand new concept/idea for my future retail store. I'm so falling in LOVE with it. Dar too, i think. Ha Ha.









By 3.10pm, we headed to HillStreet. Remember i mentioned earlier that i had something planned for dar at 3.30pm? Well, here it is. Apparently, its meant to be a surprise for dar and so, he noes nuts about it.

This surprise is noneother than a 75minutes full body massage treat at a spa, Body Contours! There's even a sauna for dar to relax in and esseential oils, for body massage, were used. Seeing that dar has been working really hard and suffering body backaches (a result of riding too much) haha, what else but a full body massage would suit him better?

If i cant even pamper my bf, then i shouldnt be called PAM. =Pp

Headed back to dar's place after that. He need to change his undies as they were super wet. Muahahahaha. Damn funny. Chilled and lazed around till 6.30pm. Again, we couldnt decide what to eat. It was a battle between Swensens, Spagheddies, Greenwood Fish Market & Bistro and CrabShack. Swensens because of meaningful reasons (It was the place we had our first dinner date together), Spagheddies because we have been craving for pizza (More Cheese More Cheese!), Greenwood Fish Market & Bistro because i've always planned on eating there but nv got a chance to and CrabShack beacause of its laidback ambience and have great food at cheap prices.

So, the decision? CrabShack!



The new menu...


Forget Swensen's baked rice, Spagheddies Pizza and GreenWoods' Fish & Chips cause CrabShack has them all in one menu! They also offer a variety of pastas, crabs and finger food. We ordered Soft Shell Crabs, which came sprinkled with pork floss, and Trellis Scallops for starters. For mains, we shared a cheesy crab baked rice and Hawaian Pizza. All with extra cheese! Didnt order the yummy fish and chips as we had them on our first visit oredi.









The trellis scallops are super nice! They have them in prawns too. The soft shelled crabs were equally good. Though a tad too oily. The crab baked rice, being their signature dish, was the star of the night. The cheesy mozerella was full of oomph, volume and stretchyness. The rice beneath was moist and absorbed the full flavours of the flower crab meat, exubing a natural sweetness altogether. Lovely! The pizza was moderate. Would have been better if the crust was thinner and crispier.

Charlie, their golden retriever, joined us for dinner too!



No desserts as they ran out of it. =(



And that's how i spent 2909 with my fatty ass. =D

Whoo! Its been a long time since i last blogged! 5 days to be exact. Quite long wad. =P

I'l start off with an over-dued entry first, followed by my latest update on "2909" - Our one year anniversary! <3s

26th September 2007, Wednesday

Helped dar springclean his room. I think i was more of a hindrance than help. Ha Ha Ha. Dust and household chores just aint my thing. After that springclean, i made my 1,987,654,321th vow to hire a maid in the future.

Lunch'ed at Golden Mile. Planet Pasta once again. BORING! But wt-heck, i ordered their special aglio olio anyhow.





Its called SPECIAL aglio olio cause of the variety of ingredients used here. There's bacon, ham and mixed veggies. I dint fancy the mixed veggies but the bacon was goood. I must say that Planet Pasta's pasta has certainly improved in taste and quality. After all, practice makes perfect.

Dar Dar! Wearing shades + gel'ed hair eating at Golden Mile?! So ridiculous yet funny!



Took a bus down to PS after that. Needed to buy get sth from the Japanese store and go to DBS. Shared a double scooped (Macademia and Hazelnut flavoured ice-cream) chocolate dip waffle cone from Andersons.



Expensive!!! But nice.
Dar bought criss-cut fries and normal fries from Carls' Jr. Stole a few pieces. Not a fries lover after all.

Chilled outside PS, by the roadside. Thinking hard about what and where to go for dinner. After much thought, we decided to train down to Toa Payoh for makan. We both had porridge from Toa Payoh Lor 2's FC. Yummy~ The stall owners even offered us tissue for the oily you tiao! Where can you find such service in a market/Food Centre?

Took a direct bus home after that. 1 hour! Guess the 1.5hrs bus ride to school everyday has sort of trained my patience and butt muscles to withstand butt cramps.

27th September 2007, Thursday

Biz Comm Project mtg in school today at 10.30am. Worked on our final report draft till 3pm. Damn Tiring! Biz Comm is super tedious and time consuming can. Which project meeting ever lasted less than 4 hours? BOO!

Bugged Dar to come pick me up from school. I was far too lazy, and tired (mentally drained) to take another 1.5hours bus ride home. Headed to Tom's Palette for dessert. Comfort Food, just what i need most. Instead of ice-cream, we bought a DIY milkshake! We chose chocolate and hazelnut as our primary flavours. Its good! Dar says he's gonna invest in a blender soon and start whipping cups after cups of milkshakes for breakfast everyday. Muahahahah. Dont forget my share too okie? I want a milkshake consisting of BNJ's Chocolate fudge brownie ice-cream blended with nutella and Ferrero Roche's!

Eunice kindly sprinkled biscotti for us. So sweet.

Tried their next month's new flavour. Its super duper NICE! Caramel + Cheese! Taste just like your Mark's & Spencers Butterscotch toffees. Except their's has a hint of cheesy after taste. Its super yummy!





My cute little one! Notice when i say "Gai Gai" he runs towards the door immediately. LOL

Hurray for saturday! 3 cheers for no school next week! YES! Its only 5 weeks into the semester and i already feel the need for a break from school so badly. Seriously, i dread to think about my workload once the recess week is over. There's gonna be midterms, quizzes, more project meetings, still more presentations and who can forget the nerve wrecking brain tormenting exams!!!

But as a Princess for Jesus, i shall just leave it in God's hands, take things one step at a time, have faith, and worry less for each day already has enough worries of its own. After all, it was HIS GRACE that brought me up. =)

Anyway, back to saturday, me and dar had chiew kee's chicken noodles for lunch. Dar ordered half a chicken. It was so much! Ha Ha. But still manageble as it was so so nice! Dar treated me to drinks from The CoffeeBean too. I had their new mocha mudslide while dar had iced fruit tea. They were indeed very generous with the chocolate fudge. Lovely~

Bused down to kallang MRT after that. Boarded the church's shuttle bus to the indoor stadium.





Its New Creation's Mid-Autumn Festival Service! Mom bought 10 tix and invited my aunts, uncles, my grandma and dar dar. Chopped seats while waiting for the rest to come. Did i mention that the weather was terribly HOT and HUMID? Rahhhhh.

There were song items, skits and a message preached by Pastor Mark himself. Everything was in hokkien and mandarin. I got quite bored after a while. Dar was enjoying the hokkien songs. Ha Ha. His era ma. Muahahaha. =P

Free mooncakes (White lotus paste + egg yolk) imported all the way from Hong Kong were given too.





Uncle drove us all to Amoy Street FC for dinner. We had Cze Char from Hong Kong Street. No pictures! Lalalalala.

There was fried omelette with prawns, sweet potatoe veggie, sweet and sour fish, prawn paste chicken wings and San Lao HorFun. Everything was delicious! The Omelette or Omulette? Whahahaha taste so nice! The only grouse i had with this dish was that it was super duper oily. Other than that, everything was great. Definitely one of the better Hong Kong Street cze char stalls around.

Brought grandma to Taka after dinner. We took her to the mooncake fair. Still as crowded as day 1. Tried a few durian mooncake samples, still, GoodWood Park's version beats them handsdown. The mooncakes from Ritz Carlton and Royal China are exceptionally good! Its fragrant, light and not overly sweet!

This coming Tuesday's mooncake/lantern festival. A great day to moonwatch and star-gaze whilst lazing on your beach mat, on the open grass patch, with a box of traditional mooncakes and chinese tea.

Happy Mooncake Festival! Dont burn down the trees with your lanterns though! =X

Yesterday (21st September 2007) was me & dar's first-date anniversary! I still remember clearly the events that took place on this particular day/date one year ago. It was a friday and i was held up by my MNO project meeting at YIH's Chunky Monkey. Poor dar, Alvis then, had to wait by the roadside, with his bike, for yours truely. I was casually dressed in a white tank top and short denim skirt while dar had on a pair of berms + blue longsleeve tee + sneakers + Levis denim jacket. I felt really "paiseh" about making dar wait for 30mins but it kinda proves that he is a really patient guy. Plus points! =) Actually, i shouldnt feel embarassed about it because even if i was punctual, dar would still have to end up waiting for me cause I bet you, he came 15 minutes earlier so he could style his hair in the toilet. Muahahaha.

Furthermore, wearing shoes on ur first date goes to show that one not only takes pride in his/her image but also treats the occasion (first date) with due respect and importance. Plus plus points! =)

Time was 8.45pm. I was starving. Needless to say, dar as well. I gave the man the honour of making the dinner venue, choice of food, etc, decision. Dar was decisive (plus points!) and suggested Swensens, the one located opposite Paragon. Plus plus points to the fact that he didnt pick a hawker centre, kopitiam, or roti prata house for dinner. He wouldnt even stand a chance if he said "The CheesePrata Shop". Muahahaha. =Pp

Time to hop onto the bike! FYI, it wasnt my first time riding a bike. My ex-bf used to ride one too and he always made it a point to lend me a hand whenever i had to get down, or mount a bike. Used to such treatment, i sort of expected dar to do the same, but he didnt! So not gentlemanly. Minus points! =Pp

Dinner was alright. We had fish and chips and shared an ice-cream too. Because i felt really bad about being late and all that, i thought it would only be fair that we split the bill/i treat so as to make it up to him but dar declined and dinner ended up being on him. Plus Points! =)

Come to think of it, dar must have been really stressed by my non-stop and incessant chatter during the meal. After all, if you know him long enough, you would have noticed that he has a i-dont-talk-when-i-eat policy. Ha ha.

Dar sent me home after dinner. We ate till about 10.11pm. I was tired from school and there was no where else to hangout as most of the retail stores were pulling down their shutters already. Home sweet home it was then.

...and that's how my first date went. How about yours?

Spent an hour or two at Shaw Towers. No, we didnt have Tom's ice-cream, neither did we catch Rogue Assasin (The movie dar wants to watch so badly but i simply refused to watch with him). What better way to spend your lazy thursday afternoon then to chill-out at Starbucks itself? Ha Ha. Im not indicating that Starbucks' de bestest chillout hotspot around but considering my budget and dar's even tighter budget (LOL), Starbucks it shall be. =)

Dar mugged for his exam while i focused on enjoying each savoury mouthful of Starbucks' piping hot Bananarama Walnut Muffin.

Alright, Im lying.

The muffin sucks. Its not just expensive but it taste awfully horrigible. I even had to make a second trip to the counter to reqeust that they re-heat the muffin again. It wasnt even warm the first time. BOO.



Bought a packet of cookies (100g) from The Wooden Spoon. There's double chocolate + walnut, oatmeal raisin and chocolate chip. Shared it with dar dar. The oatmeal raisin is one of their bestsellers. I dont really fancy oatmeal raisin (smell BNJ's oatmeal flavoured ice-cream and you'll know why. Why? It smells like baby poo and vomit) but The Wooden Spoons' was quite nice.



Once i popped, i couldnt stop. To think i promised myself that i would only eat 3 cookies and nothing more. Im sucha failure when it comes to diet regimes. BOO. Obviously, i need God. Without God (The letter "t" which symbolizes the cross), i think i'l
die, hence, DIE-T.
