|Dec. 23rd, 2006 10:15 am Hello Singapore!|
To my friends, especially the gang from 69: You were the ones who sent us off, now you're coming to pick us up too! At the expense of your own Xmas celebrations...wah really made us touched man. Drinks on us for Xmas dinner! Rem to turn up for the Xmas celebration at Jileng house too!4 comments - Leave a comment
And not forgetting the entired Econs gang of course! From constant 'bugging' for updates to the blog to occasional chats through MSN, your presence has been felt very strongly here even though we're so far apart! Thanks for all the tags to the blog too! Thanks for the book too! Freakonomics was a good companion whenever I visit the toilet hee. Rem to chop seats for us next sem!
My wonderful family with its latest addition - Baby Louis! Uncle Melvin's coming home!
To my princessy dear: I can still recall you tearfully handling me the scarf and cap you knitted (which were previously marinated with tears, sweat and mucus). And not to mention the book you sewed for me, with a 101 recipes neatly cut out from magazines and pasted into the book. Dear, you've done so much for me...down to the smallest detail. The goodie bags you sent me are almost exhausted in their contents already. Now is my turn to shower you with goodies...one from each country I travelled to! We've pulled through this period! From a month-by-month countdown to a weekly one, and now, almost an hourly countdown is possible! See u at the airport darling! Hugs!

Today, a few of us Singaporeans went to Copenhagen. I felt a little funny inside because the last time I travelled to Copenhagen was when I needed to transit to Lund. The next time I travel to Copenhagen will be for my transit again, albeit in the reverse route. But today, I was not in Copenhagen for a transit. That would be Saturday. Today is Friday. No, today was Friday; because it's past midnight now. So I should say yesterday was Friday.2 comments - Leave a comment
I am getting mixed up in my words now and I am not sure whether what I am saying is making sense. But this is exactly how I feel now. My emotions are a random mix. As I was cleaning the toilet and vacuuming the floor a while ago, I realized that no matter how hard I cleaned, there were certain dirt spots which cannot be removed. I guess it's because they've been there for months, years, maybe even centuries (or maybe not). And then, it struck me that I am merely a transient lodger in this room. In a few weeks' time, another tenant will be checking in. In around 5 months' time, yet another one will come. They can be Swedish, German, American, or Singaporean just like me. Tenants change. Corridor-mates change. Rental fees change. Even food left to preserve in the fridge does not withstand change if left uneaten for too long. In time to come, my feelings towards this place may change too. But now, while I still feel strongly towards my room, my lifestyle, my space here, I shall blog about it.

at the behest of Hapuio,my (receding hairline)friend,coupled with the fact that im damn free in switzerland now, shall upload pics and write less about the most "heavenly" place in Europe: Jungfraujoch, Switzerland10 comments - Leave a comment
Our route up to Jungfraujoch
REAL Chalets(anybody wants coasta sands?)
Man and Mountain
Welcome to heaven!
Did i mention its freaking cold here?
I dunno wad is he trying to do
I dunno wad is he trying to do either!
"Men weren't mean to ride,with clouds between their knees"
Le Beautiful Swiss Alps
These pics should satisfy Hapuio or "Zidane" as i tink he would like to be called.Oh btw,if u're not convinced of its heavenliness,Jungfraujoch is 3400M above sealevel, and is the tallest peak in Europe.Closest we've ever been to heaven (on two feet). Since it'd be some time before we're back,we decided to leave our mark here with

T'was a great wk of cooking. First up,we had a corridor cooking party.It was great to finally have a chance to interact with the rest of the pple living around the area.Even more,it was even better to have a party tt cld showcase our distinct sporean flavour=)3 comments - Leave a comment
Sumptuous spread prepared by the gang.Shall not bore with the names of the food.Just that there's serbian,swedish,spanish and german foods on display.btw the germans have interesting ways of preparing their food involving smashing pork on a table with a saucepan.
of course,not forgetting the singaporean chicken curry,which according to post-dinner reviews,was the tastiest dish on display!for those who want the recipe,email me.otherwise,just buy Asian Gourmet's Authentic Singaporean Nonya Chicken Curry Seasoning.Should be able to conjure something almost identical to wad we did.
The cooking bug realli bit us hard this wk,so much so tt ROTI PRATA became next on our list.I have a newfound respect for the prata guy outside my house.For starters,it wasnt easy kneading the dough into balls.Secondly,flipping the prata ain't juz about twisting n turning.Some of us looked like we were "hitting small people(da xiao ren)" with the dough.Instead of looking like sheets of plastic ready for folding,it looked more like torn underwear.Needless to say,the end product wasn't all that ideal.At least I was eating thick but platable pratas.Mel's resembled and probably tasted like rubber insoles of shoes.
"take that,u suffering piece of prata"
To riches!Actually looks alrite hor?The wonders of photography!
Of course,cooking ain't just about the final products.Definitely had alot of fun and laughter during the process,as well as a sense of satisfaction.I'm pretty sure not many pple have made pratas from scratch,since they're so cheap,and not as asthetically pleasing as cakes.Aniwae,its another feather in our burgeoning cooking hat!
|Oct. 3rd, 2006 06:41 pm To the 4th best softball team in Singapore|
come this dec, i will be following the NUS team up again to chiangmai for the chiangmai open again. everytime we go up,some pple wld have to make sacrifices, like being unable to spend new yr's eve w girlfriends & classmates,stomach upsets from too much food,spending too much money and bidding for modules in cybercafes. This yr, we're also going to run for prime minister elections and pose with tanks. nevertheless, chiangmai trips are always a blast when the company is right. to the uninitiated, here's why...8 comments - Leave a comment
the people who made it possible.our nanny is on the left.
our mode of transport: tuktuks. ok these are not REAL tuktuks,slightly larger,but they drive just as badly,are just as uncomfortable,and leave ur face damn dirty.
waiting 2hrs for our first meal in CM.judging from the smiles,we were probably only 15min into the wait.we probably won't eat there again this year.got a good insight into G's appetite too.
on the field.looks like its either black inners or no inners.red sleeves look like shit.
innovative warmup by COACH han.obviously some of us react slower to commands
Neo the Chosen One.
The Massacre of Trinity. The umbrella he was holding entered a place where the sun don't shine.
Winner of the "4 Million Smiles" Campaign. With the sacred umbrella.Which is now probably sitting pretty on the nanny's desk.
Playing with fireworks!
Magic goggles!More to come this year,confirm...
In all,we all gained more than we lost by going to CM.glad tt we'll be going again this yr with most of the same bunch and more.of course,not forgetting HW who gained 2 gals out of the trip!
Some pple have all the luck.
Well done again NUS softball team. Couldn't have done it without getting rid of the dead wood eh?Am looking fwd to becoming the top scorer in CM this yr!
