Time To Make You Sweat!

My go-to shop for pastries and cakes is nowhere but Savoury Fare at East Coast! Some friends and family would know me for buying them the delicious... Oreo Cheesecake on their birthday. But just recently, they added a new scrumptious... mouth-watering... Brownie Cheesecake and after one bite, it'd be no shocker why it is my current staple!

We bought this for Cassie's birthday last week and I was gratified to find that everyone including Debs who doesn't eat cheesecake liked... I mean LOVED it after trying some. Pearl said "like" is a total understatement, and hell yeah it is! It's gonna leave you feeling Yummy head to toe. If you're diet drama, you still can't help but grab hold of another piece!

The Palawan Birthday Adventure

Last weekend together with the crew we celebrated Cassie's 20th birthday. We met first for the 11.15am Mass at Holy Family and afterwards cabbed down to Vivo for lunch and headed to Palawan beach at Sentosa. We were pretty lucky to have perfect weather that Sunday afternoon being that it rained quite much the past week or so. But anyway it was a really perfect day filled with our usual bullshit but underneath all that, we have fun and love each other to the core. Life is just a lullaby. Everything that happens, happens for a reason. Happy Birthday, Gorgeous!

Suddenly I See...

I think I have a relatively good work ethic. Started work at Sentosa Golf Club doing F&B, waitering stuff. And despite my slow pace at adjusting to a new environment and constant nonsensical chattering, I was actually commended for my work and given an honor that I was told nobody else had received.

Whenever I go into a new job, I like to get into it with the idea and remember that this is new and there's always something I can take away from the job and experiences I engage in. Hence why I'm USUALLY not too concerned about the amount I'm being paid. I know it sounds cliché but sometimes the reward of the experience makes up for the lack of money or the "voluntary service" provided.

Furthermore, certain things like the ethics and practices of your colleagues; the operations of the industry; the challenges and solutions of a problem are few examples of things to look out for. Basically, capitalize on everything you do because one day it would just come in handy. Despite the strenuous work load at the club having colleagues that you can talk and joke with makes it all worth the time and effort! Oh and being paid helps a tad too!

Bought 2 new shirts about a month ago for 2 celebrations that was to take place in July. The first was the brown shirt I wore for Gavin's birthday and the second piece a white shirt with a blue line going down in the middle and I wore this for Diana's 20th last Wednesday! It reminds me of being a sailor for some reason. And both are from Topman! I think the new collections that have been coming in recently are really starting to take off!

Due to some lack of mixers, guests at the party ended up mixing really weird concoctions. But that was all good after I tried this delicious treat at the party called "Crinkles" brought by Erika all the way from the Philippines. After one, I just could not help myself but ate one after the other. The party moved over to Zouk after for some dirrty dancing all the way until closing and back to the hotel then! Hence the lack of updates due to the lack of sleep! Happy Birthday, Diana!

You Are What You Are...

How much can somebody really know about another person i.e their attitude, preferences, mannerisms and emotions.

It is so frequent to hear someone saying "I know you so well". But do they, really?! People have claimed to think they do "know me" but many times they prove unsuccessful and I don't blame them, not all the time at least. But then don't say you do if you don't or I'll just hold you to it!

I really am a hard person to read because I have my emotions shielded. I prefer to keep the things in my head and heart latched safely where they belong otherwise you might become susceptible to the wrong crowd.

Resorts World, Sentosa!

Universal, home to many of the blockbusters and some of our favorite television shows! Visited Resorts World Sentosa last week with Brother Ed. I don't know why I've never been here before but I gotta say we thoroughly enjoyed our visit! It's too bad we need to pay to get in the Casinos though, I wish I had dual citizenship so I could go in and out whenever I wanted. Will be down here again next week to celebrate Cassie's birthday! Hell yeah!

Stored In A Museum!

Spent my Friday night at the National Museum, Night Festival 2010. It was a great display of Performances, Films and Exhibitions.

On our stop at the Peranakan Museum, we noticed that they had a video presentation of a Peranakan Mass recorded at Holy Family Church some years back. And I was featured in the video! It's located at Gallery 7 under the Catholic section. Being me, I snapped some screen shots from the video. I could have gotten better shots but my camera ran out of battery and I had to use my E72 camera which was lagging that night. Overall, it was a fantastic festival and a nice change of scenery.

Viva España!

Congratulations to Spain on their first ever World Cup victory! I'm not a big soccer fan but there's just something about tournaments like the World Cup that draws you in anticipation and intensity about the winners and losers.

As I watched the game, I could not be more than happy to see Spain victorious. The players played with such confidence and great defense and most importantly sportsmanship! Which is more than I could say for the Dutch. From the many yellow cards the Netherlands had received in such a short span of time, it was obvious that their tactics and mind were not in the game but rather to "kill and destroy"! The most ruthless act to me was when Nigel De Jong of the Netherlands tackled Xabi Alonso of Spain and delivered a kick in the chest!

Iker Casillas, Captain and goalkeeper, left audiences bewildered with his skills and charm on the field from jumping and kicking to ensure the safety of his team's victory! One of the best matches and was definitely filled with some drama, comedy (the part where everyone was falling like a domino effect) and a great ending! Oh what it must be like to be in Spain right now and all the celebrations! Maybe the team would be getting free stuff for the next 4 years!

PS: Looks like Paul, the oracle octopus was right once again making it 8 straight correct predictions (if I'm not wrong). Also got these photos from Zimbio.

Don't Be Afraid To Get Down!

Returned to Zouk last night since Graduation from Poly to celebrate Gavin's 21st birthday at Velvet! It wasn't long before the birthday boy was climbing up to stand on the chairs and couches proclaiming his entry into adulthood or as he put it in his own words, "I'M A MAN!". Well congratulations and happy birthday, mate!

When The Sun Sets And Nothing's Left...

I hate when people tell you that you've changed, wait not tell you, say it behind your back. What does that really mean?! As you grow, it's granted that you change. It's so easy to talk. If I've changed than I'm glad I did because however things worked out because of it was the best thing that could have happened.

Sometimes when I'm upset or frustrated at someone, I realize my frustrations have nothing to do with the person but more at my own self. Do we look to take our anxieties out on others because it seems easier than lashing ourselves. I guess it's true what they say, "What matters most is how you see yourself".

The question that haunts me most is how much I trust myself that what I'm doing is the right thing. Is it worth investing all that thought and effort and not reap anything out of it?

Happy Birthday, Victoria!

Dominic, Rachel and I celebrated the ever so delightful birthday girl's lunch at one of my favorite chill out places, Scruffy Murphy's!

Never knew about this, but they had these deep fried mars bars which are extremely sinful! I thought about trying it but decided otherwise.

If you like sinful treats then maybe you should check them out!

Somebody Get Me A Fork!

Most of the thoughts in my head right now is about the future and where I am headed. One of my childhood friend and neighbor will be spending his last week here in Singapore before moving to Australia for further studies. Hence, some close friends and family threw a going away dinner party at their home last night. It was an authentic Indian meal and I decided to give it a go and ate with my hands rather than the normal cutlery. I hate not using cutlery as I've never been good at eating with my hands. It took me longer than most others but I'm glad I didn't throw in the towel! Now my fingers smell of curry!
