Prawn goes prawning

You see, couples like us who have been together for more than 5 years, start to crack their head hard over what to do on birthdays. I’ve been thinking about what have we not done for the past 7 years and suddenly the idea of prawning came to my head. I’m glad we usually don’t do the expensive kinda dates often, leaving us with some more to-do ideas on birthdays.

So I brought Prawn to go prawning (pun intended. hehe) at Fish @ Big Splash! It’s $18 per hour, $28 for 2 hours. And we decided to stay on for 2 hours.

We caught the fireworks at last!

Happy National Day to all Singaporeans!
This year I didn’t stay at home to catch the NDP parade. I went out with Prawn and we caught a movie Guardians of the Galaxy. After the movie, we decided to buy some food and to catch fireworks near the Esplanade area. Unfortunately the road was blocked by SPF. They directed us to Bay Front instead. We were rather intimidated by the crowd so we decided not to watch the fireworks and go Suntec Mall for a walk instead!

Then we spotted a crowd outside the mall. Were they waiting for fireworks here? It seems like a pretty good spot. So we camped here and ate our food.

8pm finally arrived. We saw reflections of the fireworks but there was nothing up in the sky as it was all blocked by the tall buildings. So this wasn’t a good spot! Prawn and I quickly moved down and at last, we caught the fireworks for the first time together!

Fellow Singaporeans cheered along as we saw the beautiful fireworks. What a blessing in disguise. It sure feels good to be watching the fireworks together! :)

Rise Restaurant Buffet

After a really tiring seven days work week, my holiday has finally begun!! Thanks to Ling, I’ve gotten a 1-for-1 buffet dining voucher at Rise Restaurant. You know, yummy food has always been my living source. I would curse and swear if I have a not so good meal. To begin my holiday with a filled stomach sounds totally wonderful! I haven’t brought out my camera to shoot for quite a long while. Yesterday was quite an exception.

Prawn’s 24th Birthday Celebration

First post of the year! As the year begins, I get caught up with work, work and more work. It is like after such a long break, I suddenly have so much things to do. I am really so not used to it. Really need to get my engine running and start fast! I’m still quite in the holiday mood and I need to get out of that soon, if not I will never be able to hit deadlines.

As all of you may know by now, Prawn’s birthday fell on the 1st of Jan. Sometimes we celebrate on the 31st and sometimes we celebrate on the first weekend of January. This year, I got to celebrate his birthday right on the 1st of Jan! Hehe. :) This picture was taken near the Habourfront Jetty. Our very first picture of the year 2014. Pretty view isn’t it?

This year, we didn’t do anything special on his birthday. (Because ideas are running low already. lol) It was just a simple celebration which consists of good meals, movie and shopping. I asked if he would mind such a simple celebration and his response was “no, most importantly is to spend the day with you.” Aww… ^^


Went to ABC patisserie located at VivoCity to have a quick bite and tea.

After the tea, we went to catch “Frozen” which was a pretty good cartoon. I love Olaf so much! Haha! We were both pretty intrigued by this lil snow man’s funny stunt.


Dinner was at The Chop House which I’ve booked two seats in advance. The Chop House has really good and efficient service!! Impressed.


We both had steak which was really tender and juicy! We love steak cooked till medium rare! Yumms. I’m so glad I learnt how to eat steak a few years back or I would have miss out on such a great delicacy.


Their signature sweet potato fries were awesome!

Oh and this year’s birthday present for him was a smart briefcase for him to bring along when he needs to meet his clients. I have given to him in December cos I bought it earlier.

I’m glad he enjoyed this birthday celebration despite it being such a simple one.
I love you! ^-^

A chilly week

As you read this post, I am probably in Vietnam for a holiday trip already. And oh no, I do not have any more posts for you to read until I come back from my Holiday. Meanwhile, you can still check out my past posts if you haven’t done so. :D

So last week was a pretty chill week. It has been raining every single day and honestly that kills my mood of going out.
I would prefer to stay home and do my blogging, watch my drama and pretty much do nothing else. :p

So on a rainy afternoon, I took the chance to clean my closet as part of my preparation for the new year. In Singapore, our flats are pretty small and I don’t have a large room for a huge closet. In fact, my closet is considered pretty big for one person already. I cleared my makeup, skincare and clothes that I never wear.
It was such an awesome spring cleaning day! My sis took some of the clothes that I threw out because she had this plan in mind to sew pretty clothes for her Blythe. That means the Blythe is gonna be dress like me! HAHA.


And then, my BF came with my Xmas delight he ordered online from his friend. ^-^

Reindeer cupcakes! HAHAHA. Actually I have seen these cupcakes while I was stalking instagram. They really don’t look like reindeer but still interestingly cute. xD The cupcakes are from The Little Patisserie if you are interested.


My mum’s birthday falls on the 7 December so my bf and I decided to take the family for a meal at Crystal Jade. It was our treat.
Dad bought this pretty rose cake made of chocolate from Prima Deli and it looks romantic.Of course it tasted delicious too!
We went to Uniqlo to find mum a jacket because she has been complaining that it’s getting cold in Singapore.

It is actually more of a chilly weather than cold here, but the air-conditioning in the transport and malls are getting worse in such a rainy chilly weather.
If anyone of you comes here for a holiday,get your cardigan and umbrella ready!

If I get enough Wifi, I might be able to “blog” on my Instagram account while I’m over at Vietnam. So follow me there!
