New Moon - 07.12.09

Finally, I'd watched the long awaited movie, New Moon, The Twilight Saga.

Gosh, after this movie, I have a new love for the werewolf... all because of Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner). Damn.. he is such a charm... and if one thinks that Edward is a charm.. well.. he is the past charm to me. With his(Jacob) new found identity in New Moon and new look, he is almost perfect. Almost.. because he is in a movie.... caring, protective, his gazing eyes.. can melt any ice in a woman's heart.. well at least mine.. I was so convinced that I only love vampires, hence I loved Edward Cullen, but in this saga, Edward looks like a skinny pale vampire... (perhaps due to his intake of only animals' blood... he prohibits himself from taking human blood... )... LOL..
... but as for Jacob.. he is the Charm... just a stare from his eyes, makes my heart skips. Oh mine.. Okie.. I shall say no more.. and let you guys go watch it... but if your gfs leave the cinema goo-goo and ga-ga-ing about Jacob Black, just forgive her, cos my Superhubby did so. Hahaha..
Yes, he is Jacob Black, the werewolf!
These are the hunks who forms the group of werewolves. Aren't they a charm?

Ribeye for dinner - 08.12.09

Superhubby went for his badminton games with his friends... so I was alone for dinner, hence I dropped by Carrefour before I went home and bought this piece of ribeye. Cooked for approximately 5 mins on both sides and I had my medium rare steak. That was all I had and it makes me a Happy Girl...

Little Hamsters

After lunch yesterday, Wee Leong, Michelle and myself, went to a pet shop at Suntec basement to get her(Michelle) new poodle puppy some supplies of dog food, dog bowl etc. She has just bought a 3 months old poodle for her MIL. While the guys are sharping their knife to get her to buy many many things for the pups, myself and "Hairy Teo" went to the front of the shop to catch a glimpse at those hamsters in the glass tank. They are so adorable that we can't help it but to snap some pics of them. Hahah... I used to have a mini Zoo at home (previous home).. where I had 2 cats, a dog (maltese), 1 chinchilla & 8 hamsters. Friends who visited me always joked about me having a mini zoo and me a zoo keeper.

Busy Sunday 06.12.09

Last sunday was a super busy day to me, given that I usually just laze at home and do nothing. Its my way of getting recharge after a tired week of working days. But this Sunday was kinda different. For the first time, I took part in a flea-market, selling my brownies. Its more of for fun and creating the opportunity for people to know the existance of my brownies. Thanks to Kim. She and her bf (whose father is a partner with actress Andrea de Cruz of a hair salon, CINQ). They let us have a little fun of flea-market at their salon on Sunday. Yeah, Andrea was there for just a short while and she bought some brownies from me.)

Superhubby took some of the photos but I will upload the photos taken from the flea-market much later.

After the flea, Superhubby dropped me at Jac's place and we went for dinner at Sushi Tei at Paragon. WOW!!! The place is fantastic, nice cozy ambience. The restaurant has moved to another unit and been nicely renovated. Quite impress and the menu is special too. We ordered food that other branches don't serve.

My all time favourite, gyu-don, but this menu has the combination of gyu-don with japanese curry. Perfecto!! Loved it but Jac prohibited me from finishing them up. *sob sob*

Uni sushi... (sea urchin)...soft but tasteless to me. Don't know why Superhubby loves it. He wasn't with us, otherwise he will be the happiest man at dinner. Whenever we go to a sushi bar.. he will always hunt for uni but just his luck, they are always out of stock. Jac ordered this for me cos she knew I have never tasted it before and she wanted me to try it.
Not sure what are these called as Jac ordered these too. All I did was to eat them. I eat almost anything in a Japanese restaurant. But these are salmon wrapped in .. ermm... don't know wat... hahaha.. oops!
Sword fish sashimi... I love this fish but I was told by friends that they contain high level of mercury and not good if eaten too much.
Now... Jac explained... "this is gonna be the right amount of rice you should be eating... nothing more that this... okie?"... and I went..."Orghhhhh... (looking horribly sad)... "

By the way, this little hill of rice... are of 4 spoonfuls. Thats it.... thats all I can have!!!!!! Not just for this dinner, but for all my meals... for a long time to come... (she and Superhubby are trying real hard to get me to lose weight... Superhubby asked for her help and here she is again... oh... Jac's profession... she is a Dietitian... but she is my BFF... so thats explain why Superhubby got her to help cos he knew, I listen to her... but I still find it rather pathetic to be eating only 4 spoonful of rice per meal.. I will try ... real hard...

After dinner, we went shopping at Paragon, CK Tang & Takashimaya, and Jac bought lots of stuff.. I am not gonna mentioned what she bought earlier but the last thing she got at Taka, is this little softy Xmas tree. So cute... it's about 1 ft tall.... and

.... if you press on this little red music note, it will play the song "O Christmas tree"... damn cute lor.. "tak boleh tahan.. ".. we couldn't help laughing at it.. she loves it instantly and bought it. (when I saw her happy laughter, I knew I wanted to get his for her as Xmas pressie.. but she bought it instantly.... now I have to think of something else to get for her Xmas pressie).

Yuriko the Onesan with Ototo Akira

These are Joel and Mayuko's kids. Little Yuriko with her newborn baby brother Akira.
Baby Akira is the latest joy of Joel and Mayuko. He was born on the 12th November. We visited him last Sunday and he was very asleep and didn't manage to see the uncles and auntie. But we had lots of fun playing with his big sister, Yuriko.


Here are some jokes to share with.... its only Tuesday today and long way more to go till the weekend arrives....

Recently, when I went to McDonald's I saw on the menu that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets.
I asked for a half dozen nuggets.
'We don't have half dozen nuggets,' said the teenager at the counter.
'You don't?' I replied.
'We only have six, nine, or twelve,' was the reply.
'So I can't order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?'
'That's right.'
So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets
(Unbelievable but sadly true...)

I was checking out at the local Woolworths with just a few items and the lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine. I picked up one of those 'dividers' that they keep by the cash register and placed it between our things so they wouldn't get mixed.
After the girl had scanned all of my items, she picked up the 'divider', looking it all over for the bar code so she could scan it.
Not finding the bar code, she said to me, 'Do you know how much this is?'
I said to her 'I've changed my mind; I don't think I'll buy that today.'
She said 'OK,' and I paid her for the things and left.
She had no clue to what had just happened.

A woman at work was seen putting a credit card into her floppy drive and pulling it out very quickly.
When I inquired as to what she was doing, she said she was shopping on the Internet and they kept asking for a credit card number, so she was using the ATM 'thingy.'
(keep shuddering!!)

I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. 'Do you need some help?' I asked.
She replied, 'I knew It! should have replaced the battery to this remote door unlocker. Now I can't get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant convenience store) would have a battery to fit this?'
'Hmmm, I don't know. Do you have an alarm, too?' I asked.
'No, just this remote thingy,' she answered, handing it and the car keys to me. As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, 'Why don't you drive over there and check about the batteries. It's a long walk....'

Several years ago, we had an Intern who was none too swift. One day she was typing and turned to a secretary and said, 'I'm almost out of typing paper. What do I do?' 'Just use paper from the photocopier', the secretary told her. With that, the intern took her last remaining blank piece of paper, put it on the photocopier and proceeded to make five 'blank' copies.
Brunette, by the way!!

A mother calls 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to take her kid to the emergency room, the kid had eaten ants. The dispatcher tells her to give the kid some Benadryl and he should be fine, the mother says, 'I just gave him some ant killer......'
Dispatcher: 'Rush him in to emergency!'

Life is tough. It's even tougher if you're stupid!!!!
