Hi everyone!! sorry for the delay on my blogging as i was away from singapore for another week. Right after BKK trip, i rested a day before flying over to OSAKI TOKYO!!:D
According to Japanese legend, every egg you eat will prolong your life by 7 years.
Kuro-tamago are very popular as a life-prolonging food.
One black egg for adding 7 years to your life.
Two black eggs for adding 14 years to your life....
It is highly recommended that you taste Kuro-tamago boiled in hot sulfurous mud water which is very specific to Owakudani.
What do you imagine if it is said Hakone?
maybe you don't imagine about shopping.
However, there is a big outlet mall near Hakone.(GOTEMBA PREMIUM OUTLETS)
Right after dinner, we were sent back to the "new Osaki hotel" where we will be staying throughout the next 3days.
That was when i met two new korean friends who were just sitting right opp us. One of them actually came forward n say hi and we had a short conversation. They r korean uni student who came to tokyo for an exchange programme. Soon it was time to go. We bid sayonara and went ahead to meet the rest at the carpark right outside.
Lastly, before we end the journey for day 4, we visited Roppongi hills which were located in the Roppongi district of tokyo. You will find many restaurants, designer shops and some of the best tokyo sightseeing around.
At around 10pm, we left and went down to beds for a little while before i went home.
Tues-271010-- today is the first day which i mark the new start of a relationship. Everything begins so simple and sweet where it all started with a shopping sponsors in scape for a boutique. Thanks to my darling dionna!:D
Had dinner with bb "K"at my fav jap restaurant in heeren yesterday. The only time i cant finish the pizza too after the filling pastas i had. After dinner, we took a stroll over at cine to look for his rings. Then went over to the shop next to it to look for michiee there. Got a shirt from her shop as to hep her with her today's sale.
At around 940pm, we caught "takers". Bumped into vincent n his friends at the ticketing counter too. n not to forget those friends at safra.
Police detectives Jack Welles (Matt Dillon) and Eddie Hatcher (Jay Hernandez) investigate a daring heist by a group of well-organised bank robbers who left no traces. The crew are led by Gordon Cozier (Idris Elba), consists of John (Paul Walker), A.J. (Hayden Christensen), and brothers Jake (Michael Ealy) and Jesse (Chris Brown) Attica. The crew is missing out a former member, Ghost (T.I.), who was caught during a previous robbery five years ago. In his absence, Jake has begun a relationship with his former girlfriend Rachel Jansen (Zoe Saldana), who has accepted his proposal for marriage. Things change when Ghost surprises the crew after getting paroled after serving time in a penitentiary, and now a shot at a $30 million heist.
reviews: this is definitely a must watch movie!!
the whole plot of the movie was perfectly put together... the cast and the actin was perfectly performed.. a job well done... and best BEST scene goes to chris brown.. when he was being chased by the bloody cops!..loved T.I.'s actin and accent!soo HOT!!:P Big heist, big action, big cast. This grand project produces mediocre character and plot work as well as some lacklustre camera work that seems to cannibalise both visual and screenplay literacy, severely hindering its potential of greatness. This makes a film that only focuses on the debut of Chris Brown's film resume and the marketing of T.I. (he's the producer by the way).
Wed-- My farewell dinner with annabel. cheryl. elise, dave and "J". We had wahan steamboat which was advertised by auntie lucy over at the central-clarke quay.
After dinner, we headed down to rachada to chill out till 11pm. Before i headed home n do a last min checking for my luggage and took a 2 hrs powernap. We were on the morning flight and had to get up like freakin’ early! At around 3am, benson came n pick me up n we drove all the way from my home to the airport.
Had an early breakfast at their toastbox. Shiok to the max!:D Met up with iris, shelley and her bf desmond at the terminal itself before checking in. Our flight takes off at 6am and we gotta do all the checking in and stuff like that 1hr beforehand. The flight from singapore to bangkok last for about 2 hours and luckily i have my ipod touch with me,
Touched down at BKK airport at 830am which is only 730am in bkk. Super early.. Welcome to the land of smiles!!:D Weather was great when we touched down at the airport.
As desmond forgotten to being his driving license, we got no choice but to take a cab down to our service apartment instead of renting a car.
The hotel that we stayed throughout this 4 days is none other than "the residence" located at soi 11 just opp first hotel, besides Platinum Mall !! Less than 10 min walk! rather near to pantip plaza(the it mall) and even siam paragon too:)
The city hotel and serviced apartment, "The Residence" on Petchaburi Road is surrounded by all of the Bangkok's most fabulous shopping and entertainment centers while adjacent to all major central business district. Even though it is next to the busy main street- Petchburi Road, guests will still get extreme privacy and peaceful in our specially designed tropical resort atmosphere. Guests will also enjoy excellent cuisine chosen from two of our talk-of-the-town dining facilities.
A small but fully equipped modern facilities,"The Residence" - Stayed in their family suite room. Each room features with tasteful and functional decoration to provide the ultimate in comfort and convenience.
Had a great time shopping in Pratunam wholesale area. (pardon me for not uploading much photos as we didnt take much photos this time while shopping or even dining in)
AFter putting down our stuff in the hotel, we headed out to pantip plaza to look at their technology items.
A 6 storey high it mall.. much bigger than our sim lim square in singapore! U can never finish combing the whole place within an hr.
Though there are a wide range of computer related products on sale, Panthip is most (in)famous for the huge amount of pirated software available. There are literally dozens of different vendors selling hacked versions of software programs, and even the most up-to-date software is available amazingly quickly.Microsoft Windows XP, for instance, had been available in Panthip some weeks prior even to it's official launch in the USA, let alone in Thailand. Thats why i will never get any software based items from bkk.
Got 2 iphone casing from there esp i know my darling jovin loves hello kitty. Bought a screen protector for my brother's ipod touch 4 too.
Soon it was lunch time, we headed over to platinum mall foodcourt to settle our meal. Even that mall needs you to purchase coupon at the counter and you can get back the cash if you do not finish the coupon.
AFter lunch, we began our shopping spree. from the bottom levels to the top levels. There's a total of 6 storeys high shopping mall. To say its so big that there r a total of 4 lanes for each level. we were more or less just browsing around as u will never know where u start from or which lanes u havent been to.
The wholesale only works if you buy 3 pieces or more. If you buy 1 piece, there usually wouldn’t be discount. There’s also no fitting room in most wholesale malls but you can try it on fully clothed if you ask the promoters. Speaking Thai can also help, as if you look and act like a free spending tourist it may be impossible to get a significant discount (many vendors will give cheaper rah kah poot tai dai 'Thai speaker prices'). Though the asking price for a foreigner is likely to be higher than it would be for a Thai (sometimes considerably so), it's not really two-tier pricing - if you're good at bargaining it's definitely possible to only pay local prices. A good idea to try and gauge the going rate is to compare prices to various other vendors, and see what kind of price the item you want goes for in fixed price stores if possible.
After buying a few dresses( more than 10 pieces) and eyelashes, we went for a 1 hr thai full body massage. Damn freaking shiok !! I’ve never felt sooooo relaxed in my entire life . Its like , all the stress & muscle fatigue accumulated in my body over the years disappeared after the massage.
Next, we took a tuk tuk down to MBK!:D
MBK (Mah Boon Krong) is a mix of wholesale of cheap stuff and moderately-priced (read: not luxury like couture or even branded).
We were window shopping around mbk till 9pm where all shops r preparing to close. Bought 2 necklaces which one is for ivy babe:) Got back to the hotel after that and we ended the first day by taking turn for shower n preparing to hit the sack.
Woke up early to have breakfast at 9am at the hotel cafe which they served us in buffet style. U can see all kinds of egg styled. from fried to scrambled eggs. At bout 1130am, the cab chauffeur arrived and bring us to the four face buddha to pray before we were out of bkk after that to all kinds of temple which shelley n desmond wanna visit. The weather in bkk was so humid that everywhere u go, u sure will order coconut drink to quench your thirst.
At around 7pm, we headed down to chinatown(yao wa rat) for dinner. Ordered those seafood dishes and a bowl of shark fin's soup for sharing. The dinner there was still alright. Nth special which i felt so.
Right after that, we got back to the hotel to catch some rest. This was then shelley n ivy began the drinking session. I was given just 2 cups of absolute vodka and couldnt take it anymore. My head was spinning by then that i actually wanted to just go have an early sleep. But the girls wanted to go supperclub,
Co-incidentally, to say Vincent they all r also in bkk supperclub, so we just went ahead with the plan. The club there wasnt as fantastic as compared to singapore. Apparently i didn enjoy much at all. Opened a bottle but within 15 to 30 min, some unexpected situation happened that we gotta make a move first. A sad thing to say that my arm was injured too cuz of my friend. haix. better not to mention anymore.
As usual, woke up by 9am and headed down for the breakfast with iris before both of us went ahead to chatuchak. The weather was rather humid that we got ourselves bottles of mineral water.
Chatuchak weekend market
We had MK steamboat at siam paragon. Ordered a lot till when the bill comes, its around 2000 baht.
Siam Paragon is indeed shopping mall just like our singapore paragon.. where they sell lots of branded goods ranging from LV to Gucci to even Chanel etc.. The things there r overly pricey indeed.
After Siam Paragon, we separated and i went back to platinum to get the bikinis and also 2 pouches for friends. At around 5pm, im already back to the hotel doing a last check to see if i brought everything back and never leave any important stuff there.
By 6pm, its time for us to head back to the airport. Theres a small conflict between us and the driver. But in order not to miss our flight since its last call, we just paid him extra and quickly rush to the check in area. Im the last passenger up on the flight somemore. Quite fortunate enough:)
Back to sg by 1130pm where benson came n pick me up from the aiport back home:)
Was on the phone with "J" reporting strength.. haha! kidding. was just having a chat over hows my trip and is there any happenings over there. "KR" cant come n pick me up as he was tired after work, but he promised to pick me up from the airport when im back from tokyo.. Upon reaching home, i had a chat with mummy n brother too over the whole trip in bkk before unpacking my stuff from my luggage.
see my loot? Some r for friends and not for myself. Bought many gifts instead of my own stuffs.
"You can't make someone love you, but all you can do is be someone who can be loved, the rest is up to the person to realize your worth". Its not worth crying for someone who dont treasure u, but to continue your life with beautiful colors and to await for the right person to arrive:)
(the right person, who? doesn't comes easy. is never easy to let go your past too.) This movie, make you think deeply through your thoughts and show u the hint/directions... It definite worth every penny that you spend. Even for the 2nd or 3rd time. At the time of your cross road in your love relationship... take time to watch the movie. You may find some 'direction' in it...
So sorry for neglecting my blog for roughly 2 wks as i was rather tied down with work.. like the f1, gov ware 2010, tvc corporate ad and shoots... Busy n hectic schedule indeed.. Finally get to fork out some time to share my happenings with u all:) Here u go... Tues-- AT last, after 2 wks... im out shopping again:) This time round i went with my darling amanda. While waiting for her, i went to replenish my makeup items and even bought a bag before off to alter two of my halter top which the rubber had aredi loosen off. After she arrived, we continue to shop till 8pm where in total i bought additional 1dress, 2 top, 1 skirt and not forgetting a blazer as well. The damage=100 over dollars just on shopping items. Met sam, the peng yu yan look alike while i was at bugis village:) Around 830pm, we had pastamania for dinner and great chat before home sweet home after tt. wed-- Today is the ORIS watch launch!:D So excited... Met jasmine at bugis before we two cabbed down to klapsons hotel for the rehearsal. TOtal gt 6 models working today. 3girls and 3 guys. they r jovin and priscilla, me n shawn, jasmine n sean. We were asked to hold the rifle(for the guys) and pistol(for the girls) and trying to act millitary by having the toughness yet sexy look. This is the first launch that i ever did with actions involved apart from just having a normal catwalk kind.. so kinda new experience:D Before the show start, we had burger king in the resting room. At bout 730pm, its time for the launch. We walked out n start pointing guns onto the vips to create the toughness of the theme:) Once we r done with that, we went back n began to take the polariods and went round to approach the crowd to join in for the photography contest. The theme is red white and green etc or rough n so on..The audiences r supposed to use their creativity n snap a pic where it brings out the theme of the watch. Let the pictures speak a thousand words:)
Right after the launch, I headed down to beds to look for adrian n his friends.. before alex n eric came n pick me up to zouk. We had a drink near the riverside first tog with jovin they all too.. Bumped into quite a few friends today n drank quite a lot. Thanks to alex who helped me drink upon seeing that i cant take it anymore.. Home sweet home by 3am.

Gill simply stands for gorgeous, intelligent and gillian holding lolliopop n pose with cute expression:D After shoot, had dinner at sakae before catching "cats n dogs" the new movie with J.
In the age-old battle between cats and dogs, one crazed feline has taken things a paw too far. Kitty Galore, formerly an agent for cat spy organisation MEOWS, has gone rogue and hatched a diabolical plan to not only bring her canine enemies to heel, but take down her former kitty comrades and make the world her scratching post. Faced with this unprecedented threat, cats and dogs will be forced to join forces for the first time in history in an unlikely alliance to save themselves and their humans.
You don't have to go for the 3D one. 2D is good enough.
It begins with Digg, the German Shepherd who works as a police dog, got suspended for awhile and locked up in a cage for his rash behavior. It was from there that he got recruited to a dog world unit that were in force to hunt for kitty galore. Kitty galore became hairless because he fell into a tub of hair-remover cream and what thrown out of home by his owner. From there, he decided to take revenge on humans and dogs.
To find Kitty galore, the tip was to hunt for the pigeon first as it has most of the information on where to find kitty. While hunting for the dogs were hunting for the pigeon, they met with Christine, a cat whom is also hunting for the pigeon. They realized that the cat was harmless and the only way to find kitty and stop it from its K9 reaction, that would cause all dogs to turn against their owners, were to work together.
Kitty galore's owner was a circus entertainer that often dress it up with different furry suits. She was finally dressed up by getting spinned a candy floss maker. Her assistant, was actually a robot cat which she built.
My favorite character is the pigeon, named Seamus.
monday-- Its dad's birthday:) celebrated for him during dinner before i headed off to JP for a short interview over the f1 event that i was shortlisted. In fact, i was selected on the spot after being viewed and also questions regarding f1 being asked, such eg. what do u know bout f1, who is your fav racer? Tues-- Met up with dionna, misaki and dream for casting as they were asked to go down as well like early in the morning. SO around 3pm, there was a short casting for all the 5girls, including charlotte and selina too. Only 2 girls will be selected. After their casting, dionna and i headed for a drink over at the cafe while waiting for xinyi to reach. We had a good chat over some girl;s topic.. Soon after, bout 5pm, she gotta make a move first to meet her friend. So while continuing to wait for my dear xinyi to arrive, i had a shopping spree alone instead. Got myself a new bag and plus a new pair of carve boots. COst me around 150 without remembering to bring my member card for 20 percent disc:( At around 6plus, we cabbed over to MBS. Due to the f1, all the roads were blocked somehow that the uncle gotta make a big turn to reach the destination.
Upon arriving, we went to shop for nikki's birthday present:D Got her a diamond pendent with necklace from citigems. Thus after, we made our way back to aloha lobby 2 and got up from the lift together with lynn to the suite room:D
There were sushi buffets and not to forget the cutting cakes session.
New gadgets!! received an email from APPLE!:D
thurs-- Dave came n pick me up from my hm at 12pm where thats the time me and annabel r ready to go.... USS(Universal studio)!!:D
We were indeed so excited that we kept asking him to drive faster.
Upon reaching, we began our adventure preview by looking at the map and deciding which way to go, clockwise or anti-clockwise.
Watch where u go!
Next, we wandered into Shrek's Far Far Away Castle, where there was a 4D show to watch.
This means you watch a 3D movie with the 4th D being the moving seats and special effects like water being spit at you, the wiggly spider crawling on to ur legs. Wear the 3D glasses provided, watch and physically feel the action from where you are seated as the fairytale adventure begins.
I think the most exciting ride at the theme park is Battlestar Galactica CYLON (blue track) at Sci-Fi City. The red track is for Battlestar Galactica HUMAN; as the name suggests, it’s more for “human”, so it’s relatively a “milder” ride as compared to CYLON! Both are dueling coasters, which means the two roller coasters will narrowly avoid collisions as they twists and turns! Its a pity that the big roller coaster that everyone had been awaiting for was closed. The reason behind the five-month shut down of Universal Studios Singapore star attraction, the Battlestar Galactica was..
However as the games involved drinking of shots, i didn really participate in any cuz dont wish to drink any alcohol. So to me it was kind of boring. Soon there's prize presentation and cutting cakes session before agnes dear and vanessa sweets came too. Around 1130pm, Yip mun left with us too for zouk but halfway through we lost them, so entered without them.
Fri-- Had a briefing for the new watch launch at ions swenson. Addie, hanxiong, 2 shawns and one more guy were there too. Not to forget jasmine as well:) It was an interesting briefing afterall as this is like my first time of the yr where i get to work with male models again:) how i wish there is such combination most of the time. Sth new to work with=D Addie and hanxiong kept wanting to pair me n shawn together esp when they heard that he knew me too. HAHA! Anyway, after the briefing, i went off to meet annabel and cheryl and waited for dave to come over n drive us down to holland v. We had our dinner at the roof terrace:) Ordered tenderloin steak.
Right after dinner, he sent us down to jab 1 for hanjie's birthday. Upon reaching, the boss asked me why i didn contact him. Im actually still considering wether to take up the PT job too.. Kind of being indecisive. At around 12am, we headed down to PH to meet junquan they all as he's enlisting soon so this shall be a celebration for him before he gonna enlist. Left at around 130am as it wasnt fun at all. Instead i bumped into richard and also rayson too:)
