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.

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
Okie... back to studying! Ciaoz.
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
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?
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.
