Earworm: The Beautiful Letdown~~Switchfoot
Happy New Year! I'm going to be voting age this year. And I'm not making any new year resolutions.
Coming back to Singapore means spending money like the Kallang River...
But anyhow, its the company that matters.. regardless of how much one spends. *pats empty pocket*
Rainy weather didnt deter us from going out. Although we gave Bugis a miss, Vivocity was our next target for convenience. I had dinner at Kim Gary with Niths and Yen then we caught The Holiday. The seats were not good mind you, luckily the movie proved otherwise. Jack Black was surprisingly convincing as a romantic lead who still retained his comedic streak. Kate Winslet provided the emotional anchor. Jude Law was a charming weepah and Cameron Diaz was bimbotically funny. Nice light hearted show about love and relationships.
At vivo again with my darling. Had dinner at Jia Xiang Sarawak Kolo Mee Restaurant. Not bad la that place. Tasty food, small portion though.
the harbourfront xmas tree with lessening teddy bears.
then there was the photo outing to Arab St where I found out harga seekor kambing for korban hari raya haji was $270. Expensive? I dunno, Photoboss said he wanna keep it as pet =/
After lugging around the DSLR for hours, felt spent. But had a class dinner at Fish and Co glass house to attend. Bought a skirt from This Fashion while milling around Dhoby Ghaut. Couldn't resist!
As expected ppl will be late. Dinner order started only at 8pm?? and the predetermined meetup time was 6pm. My Coriander Catch wasn't nice =/ had chopped chinese parsley in it. YQ gave us all vampire friendly stuff in vials. =p
against backdrop of Jodi Picoult's My Sister's Keeper.
After that was a movie trip to the new Cathay cinema to catch Blood Diamond. A heart wrenching portrayal of senseless killings and innocent children made gunmen. I liked Jennifer Connely's character though. Leo's didnt do the same for me. I thought Djimon Honsou was a bit overacting? Or was it supposed to be the correct emotions for the show? Blood diamonds and social issues surrounding them are obviously not my expertise so I can't be the judge. I liked the ending (closing line) where not everything is nicely wrapped up.
The first earthquake which i resisted. I didn't to the second one at Earle Swensens.(more high class versh of Swensen's. Try the sinful mussels for appetisers!)
New Year's Eve
Marina Square with YH and Jol. Jol is still the same ole anything can say joker. haha.Lioness! YH is as black as ever.=)
Waiting for the fireworks that never happened. Ah well. Yh is delighted at the Heineken though =p There's the Swedish Ship at the Promenade that blasted our eardrums off.
Later at Newton Circus I cannot eat the damn spicy ikan bakar (which I didn't know alluded to stingray til then!)
Next morning still more eating to come at Red Star Dim Sum restaurant. Lovely char siew pau and prawn stuff. And the egg tarts. Scorchingly brilliant!
And the get lost at Geylang episode. Idiotic!
Photo duty at Male Hockey. The sun is not good for my complexion! But (boast) I got some pretty good shots I must say.haha maybe only coz i took perhaps 300 shots. More than enough!
My dabble with photoshop
Night movie of the forewarned draggy Death Note 2. Cabs have become our main transport =/ 2 and a half hours of... derisive snorts at Misa and still not amused by L's sweet fetish (but I love the mask) Good ending. At least he died short and sweet.
