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
