Memory Lane – The Song (1)

Just heard this playing on 933 (it’s 1am now …)

It reminded me of the days nites I had in XXX. Though hard time doing OTs, but it was the companions and songs that ‘pulled’ me thru.

I might have very much wanted to go home then 😛

Memory Lane – The Song (1)

中秋佳节之际

Last Thurs during our dinner @ Sushi Tei, everyone seems enthused to organise a “Moo Moo Nite 07” (mid-autumn party). Main purpose behind it was to clear the mooncakes we had at home or office, and oso to taste on different flavours.

NL who wasn’t at the dinner knew about such arrangement via our msn chats on the same nite, and so sent an email out to the rest on Mon morning to confirm on the party.

I had oso reserved a brand new box of Tung Lok pandan flavoured single york mooncakes, a brand new box Si Chuan Dou Hua restaurant single york mooncakes, 1 whole pc each of Amara hotel and Shangri-la hotel mooncakes.

Responses were totally negative … as usual.

Nevermind, I brought all these home today … for 妈咪 to share with her friends at the kopitiam/hawker.

It was a ‘super hot’ weather this evening. It might not be that ‘hot’ if I could board any of the 4 packed trains only to board the 5th train which air-con seemed to be down. ~_~

Having to carry all these was ‘bad’ enough, but to squeeze thru to get out of the train … **sigh** … Cun those standing near the door just step out and allow others to get out from the train rather than me rising my voice to say “EXCUSE ME!” after a polite attempt.

Ok, it’s 中秋节 today. Will not let these unpleasant encounters spoil my mood on one of my fav festives.

Looking out of the window, I could see a big, bright, round moon high up on the sky.

Too bad it was slightly ‘hidden’ behind the tree branches 😦

祝大家中秋节快乐,人月两团圆!

中秋佳节之际

中秋佳节之 By The River

It’s time for another round of meeting up, I suggested Central Mall (again) cos I wanted to take the mid-autumn deco at the spore river outside the mall.

And because I wasn’t able to take a better pix of the fairies decos along chinatown main road that day, I decided to take a long walk route to Central Mall from office.

Sun with Moon was our choice of dining for the nite. A very cosy place which turned very COLD after seated for 15mins. Nevertheless, the ambience and food was nice : )



Soft Shell Tempura (S$8.50)
This tempura wasn’t in the menu but the waiter was nice enough to make a special request for us to the chef.
It was nicely fried and not oily at all.


Sun Salad (S$8.80)
The salad was actually placed in a spagetti container and will be shaked to mix through before pouring them onto the plate


Salmon Sashimi (S$19.60)
The salmon was generously freshy and fresh. Sweet to the taste too : )


Ebi Ten Roll (S$10.80)
quite a filling piece as compare to those economic sushi


Gyu Katsu Roll (S$12.50)
the beef taste was rather covered by the rice


Ton Toro Yaki (S$12.80)
best of the lot … the beef was grilled perfectly without losing the tenderness yet crispy


Sukiyaki (S$14.50)
my knowledge of the bowl of egg was to be used as a dipper for the beef, but the rest seems rather reserved with this way of consuming and preferred to have that mixed into the soup instead. It tasted equally great though the soup base was rather sweet.

While my dinner was almost through, I received a call from 妈咪 saying that 小妹 and her were heading towards Central Mall soon. And so after our dinner + my fav. hokkaido ice-cream, I ‘tricked’ sharky and 老公仔 into the japanese supermarket below where they started buying a lot while I bought nothing 😛 … before I headed off to join them back home.

P/S: the events at Central Mall were all done up by 小妹’s bf and his team. Not bad huh ^_*

中秋佳节之庆祝会在裕华园

Where is the best place to go during Mid-Autumn fest? Chinese Garden 裕华园 of course! ^___*

After the failure attempts to take good festive pix at chinatown, we decided to head down to the chinese garden for more shots … and oso to try out my camera nite shots : )

I ‘invited’ YT along since she stayed so near there.


Though the firework displays weren’t as grand as those during fireworks celebration month, they still bring festive atmosphere around the garden. A grand finale of the nite : )

中秋佳节之庆祝会在裕华园

Another Lazy Afternoon @ Bugis

It’s time to go down to Si Ma Lu for praying again, and since I had been the one accompanying her for the past few trips, there’s no reason to reject her request though I had very much wanted to save my leave for future use 😛

Before setting off to the temple, we met up for lunch at V8. Lunching at such shopping mall without thinking of rushing back to think office is ever so relaxing.


Grilled Salmon Fillet (S$11.80) for me and Fish n Chips Set Meal (S$8.80) for her


spiral staircase structures at the back lane of the Bugis Village … I like : )

It wasn’t long, think less than 2 hours, before that we stepped into another cafe 😛

The gourmet level had revamped to a much nicer and more varieties place. The previous occupant, Hoshigaoka has replaced by Wong Kok Char Chan Teng. I was basically attracted by the name of the cafe, which should be rightfully spelt as Mong Kok Cafe instead. But they might just want to be outstanding and attract attention like us ^_*

After stepping in to the cafe, I dun feel any ‘cheapo copycat’ with it at all. But was rather attracted by their interior and menu. The overall setting was nice and cosy, which probably also because of the hour we arrived. So much so that we were started taking some leisure pix of ourselves ^_^


Cold Hong Kong Yuan Yang Tea (S$2.20) / Hot Stocking Milk Tea (S$2.20)



French Toast (S$2.80)
the butter was rather pathetic, but the taste was just nice though with the smooth peanut butter fillings combination


Fried Nissin Noodle with Pork (S$6.90)
this dish was rather oily … but she finished up everything 😛 A bit saltish for me.


we were so coincidently wearing matching tops 😛

And soon we were shopping for T’s bd tee at the astroboy retail shop below. We were supposed to buy a tee each only when she spotted a similar tee of a super small size … for 小 T … which had to wait till 2 yrs later before he can actually wear :-O

Another Lazy Afternoon @ Bugis

Sushi Tei @ HV

In order for the convenience of the gals who will be bringing our ordered clothings all the way down to JT and me, we suggested having a dinner at HV 😛

Normal routines of emails were sent to all gals/guys. Only MsC, SL, AG, PL, JT, me and … ta lang! WY joined us too! ^_^

After some suggestions, we finally ended up at Sushi Tei. The restaurant wasn’t very big and so there wasn’t any suitable table for us around the conveyor-belt. But the upper level seatings were cosy enough for us, though the big and weighted menu was simply taking up most of our space.

warning!!!! dun be frighten by wat u going to see below 😛








that’s how much a grp of 7 gals had ate for the nite … and some of the above were with double orders too 😛

The dinner once again ended with nice and fun chats, with satisfing meal and HUGE BILL :-O
