便当


若你问我什么食物最好吃,
我会毫不犹豫地告诉你,
家里做的便当最好吃。

味道是其次,
就说花费的时间做便当就好了,
时间花在购买材料,准备材料,
还有烹饪上,
已经很豪时了。

简简单单的一份便当,
看似简单,但下的功夫可不少。
所以一定要感谢帮你做便当的人,
费时又费力的帮你准备便当。

我要谢谢小文,
她今天准备了便当给我!
炒米粉,加洋葱炒蛋,还有broccoli,
她甚至还细心的用一个小罐子,
装了切好的超辣小辣椒。
太棒了!

我大口大口的狼吞虎咽,
太好吃了!
吃完后才发现,哎呀!快撑死了!
太饱了!

吃便当,
生活快乐事之一也!

The Coffin


This was such a disappointment!
If you ask me out of five stars, how many stars would I award, I would say half a star. No, don't even watch the movie, save the $9.50 for something else, like a good meal.

The plot was really weak and I wasn't even sure, after watching the whole movie, why did the Ghost haunt the male lead. The pace of the whole movie was a slow drag and the tempo was just not there to lift up the eerie feeling. And the scare technique used by the director was not shocking enough. Karen Mok's performance here pale in comparison to Li xinJie and Shu Qi in The Eye and Eye 2 respectively.

I almost fell asleep watching the movie, and no I wasn't imagining I was in a coffin.
This Raintree production is such a let down.
And sorry Siew Boon, I watched it without you but that would mean you saved $9.50.

早餐



三餐之中,我最喜欢的就是早餐了。
它能给我一天的能量。
起个清早,享受清晰的空气 和一顿丰富的早餐,
对我来讲,是件非常幸福写意的一件事。

那天,我在咖啡店吃我的早餐。
捧咖啡的阿嫂对我说,
“星期六,很空闲哦?“

我回应她说,
“星期六还要来工作,命好苦哦!“

她看着我说,
“你身体健康,又有工作,
怎能算命苦呢?那些生病又失去工作的人,
不是更命苦吗?“

听了阿嫂的话,我哑口无言。
因为她说得很有道理。
我们因该知足常乐,不要身在福中不知福也。
我很庆幸我身体健壮,而且还能有份不错的工作,
着是上帝的恩赐。

现在每每我要开始埋怨的时候,
我就会想起阿嫂的话。。。
我是幸福的!

Shimbashi Soba @ Paragon basement

Call me “Sua Gu”
I really didn’t know that the basement of Paragon has had a “facelift”
So many eateries there now.

Well, I had dinner at Shimbashi Soba the other night.
The restaurant is well known for their Soba.
Indeed, it was tasty and the soba texture was just nice.
The soup base was also delicious.

I ordered the soba set, it was quite filling for me.


I also ordered the desert, man! It was really good.
Brought back memories of Japan.
If you are a fan of everything Japanese, you must not miss this.
For about $14, you get savour 6 different kinds of Japanese desert.
“Sugoyi Yo!”

Shades of Funkiness


I was window shopping with no intention of getting anything. But at the end of the afternoon, I bought this pair of shades. Ha! Ha! Is it too loud? This is my first pair of funky shades.

It is difficult for me to buy shades as I have a broad face. Most of the shades are too small for me. When I was trying this one, it sort of fits and it has this refreshing look. Buying it for my Osaka trip this winter, nobody would take notice of me there as Japanese is well known for being trendy.

What is this compare to their creative dressing style?

快炒



六月分,去了台湾一趟。
热情的台湾朋友为我们洗尘,
带我们去吃快炒。
所谓快炒就是我们的“煮炒”,
又经济又快。

新加坡也有一间煮炒,
叫“顺顺发海鲜”


Soon Soon Huat Seafood Restaurant
Block 94 Henderson Road

它价钱便宜,食物美味,而且服务很快。
那天,可能是没什么人的关系吧
(因为已过了晚餐时间) ,
不到五分钟,
服务生就吧一道道的美味菜肴端上桌。

味道上,很合我胃口。
师傅的手艺不会很重,调味得刚刚好。
我推见你试试
“虾酱鸡”和 “炸豆腐”
美味极了!

“顺顺发海鲜”的服务好,
价廉物美
是个绝好的用餐的地点。
注意, 听说用餐时间常常爆满,
你可要避免 peak hours 哟!

A lesson on the road




We were on our way to meet Adeline to catch Mama Mia. We were on PIE and I was telling Siew Boon that sometimes, when I am too engross in thought, I would miss the exit to city and I have to go a longer way, passing through umpteen traffic lights before I reach my intended destination. It is such a waste of time and effort and it normally generates lots of frustration.

Siew Boon gave me an instant reply which started me reflecting, " what if along the way you enjoy the scenery or discover something interesting?"

That's a very refreshing perspective.

Many a time, when we make an error we tend to get frustrated, missing the unexpected little blessings that might turn up.

No, I didn't miss the exit to city this time, but I certainly learn an important lesson in life - Ride through life obstacles and keep an open heart for little blessings that might turn up when you least expected!

Mirror Mirror on the Wall


The movie "Mirrors" is definitely not one for the faint hearted.

I mean, man! it is so gross and bloody.

The first act has this man slid his own throat. And if you think that is bad, there is another scene where this lady tore off her own jaw. I had my hands all over my eyes.

This remake of the Korean version of "Into the Mirror" is nothing like the original. The Korean version's success lies on the eerie and creepy mood that capture the audiences' attention. Whereas for the Hollywood remake, I was too traumatized by the nerve racking scenes.

If you think I am exaggerating, go google youtube for the Mirrors trailer and you will get a glimpse of the hair raising scenes. Look for the jaw ripping scene.

Be warned, it is not for the faint hearted.

A commitment to come back to blogging

After a long hiatus from blogging, I decided to make a come back. I just viewed a YouTube clip which suggest that if we commit to...
