Homerun Baseball

On one of our double date weekends, the boys suggested going to Homerun Baseball! Something new, why not?

So with a sporty day in mind, I searched my entire wardrobe for a casual outfit that morning and realized I have nothing suitable to wear! How could it be that I have no clothes for sports??? I remember buying some running shirts last year when I just got my new treadmill but I didn't even wore it once (I always run in home clothes) and it's nowhere to be found in my room.

In the end, I went out wearing this. Yea yea... I know... How is this even close to sportswear right? Hahaha. At least I wore suitable shoes ok! I ended up with very painful toes at the end of the night because I'm so not used to wearing such shoes.

Wedding Preparations - Getting Started

After the proposal. we were at a loss on what to do first so I did up a draft checklist of the things to do leading up to the wedding and the first two items were - Choose a Date and Book a Venue. The rest can slowly decide after that.

We actually wanted to calculate our dates first, but realize that we ought to find out what are our parents' expectations and traditional customary beliefs before getting started.

So, a couple of days back, my bf invited my parents for a dinner with his parents in a Chinese restaurant. Main aim was to discuss about both sides' expectations before we start booking anything. Glad it went quite well and not too awkward!

It's Monday Again!

It's Monday again! Contrary to the chat log above, I'm actually quite refreshed today!

Woke up earlier than usual and aimed to take the mrt instead of cabbing like I always do. But just as I was a distance away from my bus stop, I saw the bus drove off. I'd end up late if I wait for the next bus, so I took a cab to the mrt instead.

I used to always do this and BF always say nag and say I waste money. Then I started taking cab all the way to the office instead, now BF wishes I would take cab to mrt only. Hahahahaha. See, perfect example for "you never know what you've got till you lose it."

My Ramen Week

I had three and a half bowl of ramen from japanese restaurants last week. And then for the past three days, I've had three bowls of Japanese instant noodles.

I'm officially sick of ramen already!

First was this last Friday night near my office because I was trying to reward myself for the end of a week of hard work.

$18 for a bowl of crab ramen which wasn't fantastic because it came with Chilli flakes and I felt it affected the soup. Sian.

Then on Saturday we went to Ippudo for lunch cos I wanted to intro it to BF.

It's comparable to our favourite ramen at Keisuke Tori King (note tori, because the tonkotsu branch is not as nice)

After that on Sunday I had this Chashu udon which is not really ramen but the soup is ramen type of soup so it's 0.5 ramen.

Then on Tuesday after work I was craving for my fave mala noodles at a small stall in a street alley but it wasn't open so I settled for mala ramen at a Japanese restaurant but it didn't have the authentic mala noodles type of taste that I wanted. Another $18 fly away.

Then on Thursday, I bought this back for dinner because I was craving for Japanese ramen and didn't want to spend another $18.

This was $1.35 and tasted quite nice!

On Friday I decided to buy back the same cup noodles for supper for my family because when I ate it the day before, she commented it looks good.

Ya, everytime Friday must celebrate.

And I just cooked this for lunch today because
(1) I'm alone at home
(2) nothing in the fridge that is easy to cook for one person
(3) delivery options all have minimum order
(4) it's raining
(5) actually decided to just go down and buy food then when I was infront of the storeroom selecting umbrella, I realize that I don't really dare to anyhow select one and risk cockroaches flying out when I open.


Anyway I cook the ramen until very pekchek because it's very windy and my fire went off like 4-5 times while I was cooking a 4-5 minute meal. Next time my house gonna use electric stove.

The ramen turned out to taste like ee-mee which I don't really like, but the soup is good! :)

Café & Bar Gavroche

Late last year, bf brought me to Café & Bar Gavroche, a cosy french bistro on Tras Street. We seldom go cafe-hopping nowadays and I hardly blog about cafes as much as I used to because they are starting to feel all the same. However, Gavroche was special enough for me to remember even now, almost 5 months later.
