Stuff Diddly Uff

Hi, I’m currently sitting at the bus stop outside my former secondary school typing out this draft that I will post once I get home and have access to the internet. The reason why I’m writing a blog post here is because my phone is running dangerously low on battery juice so I have to charge it with my Macbook’s power hehe.

First things first, GOODBYE ITB FOREVER AND GOODBYE VC BROCHURE CA. Finally, after all the stressing out over the past few months, the biggest burdens of the term have been submitted. It feels like a ten ton boulder has just been lifted off my shoulders. I feel freeeeeeee again~

Today I’m gonna be blogging about last week’s happenings. This isn’t going to be a food wrap-up coz there’s going to be pics of things other than food! Well, one picture. Out of like nine photos in this post lol BUT WHATEVER.

Last week started off with our ITB group, Sempiternal (or SempTITernal, as Mr Ken calls it) having to go to school four hours early so we could go for a consultation session and tie up loose ends on our work. Well it turns out that none of us were really up to doing actual work on an early Monday morning, especially not ITB. So after a brief consultation we decided to head down to Ikea for breakfast/lunch! :D So excitingggggggg~

My kid’s meal pancakes (lol don’t judge okay the kid’s price was so cheap and the portion was just nice for me. Also the kiddy plate is nice), marzipan cake and delicious REFILLABLE lingonberry drink.

The pancakes were really soft and scrumptious and the jam and cream were super yummy, although the portion was way too little. First time trying the marzipan cake, only got it because it looked so freaking pretty.

It was really soft and light and pretty delicious, but too sweet for me as usual hehe. I don't have a sweet tooth at all, in fact I have a salt tooth really :P

Tuesday after school when I decided to go have a meal by myself after school. I've been doing that a lot lately, actually. Solitude is something I really enjoy and value. I mean, I don't wish to be by myself all the time but I do think that having some time when you can just be alone with your thoughts is truly important.

Anyways, it's the student meal chicken baked rice from Korean BBQ Chicken (despite their name they're actually more of a Western fried chicken eatery), less than ten bucks for a delicious main and a soft drink, HUZZAH! Besides Pizza Hut, this is probably the best baked rice in Singapore. I shit you not. Go and try it!! Cheese is abundant and grilled to perfect fragrance and charred-ness, rice is super aromatic coz it's not just plain rice there's like herbs in it. And the tomato sauce just goes so well with it!! Only slight complain would be the chicken pieces are too big and dry :\ But other than that IT'S A WINNER.

Nothing for Wednesday coz we didn't have VC lesson this week and I didn't feel like getting up early to get prepared and dressed for school and travel down just for a short consultation session and nothing else after that. Furthermore we had a freaking HMB test the next day, THAT SHIT'S IMPORTANT! But nevertheless I handed up my VC CA and errthang so it's all good lol.

Headed to school like four hours early to make up for the VC consultation I missed lol. Then had a last minute study session where I tried to cram as much information about HMB as I could into my head lol. There's seriously no way in hell I can study with friends, I'd just get distracted and chat with them and be my usual idiot self hahaha. Let me study ALONE.

Oh gosh I really do love solitude...

Chicken baked spaghetti I bought from the Hilltop Haven cafe. Pretty good, except for the fact that they used angel hair pasta (aka capellini) which I absolutely HATE since I was a child. That shit is so thin it's like bee hoon, and we all know bee hoon is an Asian food. When you top these skinny ass noodles with Italian pasta sauce and cheese, my mouth just gets all confused okay!! Don't do that.

My bear-themed study snacks for the day lol.

I think it's laughable how I actually believed that I would study for the whole solid 4+ hours leading up to the test. After about an hour and a half, I decided to call it a day, accept that I've memorised all that I can and I'll just take whatever I get, and decided to just surf the interwebz lol.

I played Tetris Battle for a solid hour after which I watched a bunch of random Youtube vids haha. At least I discovered a couple great new Kpop songs (EXO's Growl is PERFECTION omg thank you for releasing a nice song after the shitcake that is Wolf. And the music video is a dream~ A SWEET DREAM THAT I WISH I HAD EVERY NIGHT IN REM SLEEP)

Cha soba I had after school on Friday (alone again lol). Haven't had it in a while and it is SO GOOD! Slurpy and refreshing ^_^

Went out for dinner with my family, but before that my mum went to do a little bit of shopping.

What happens when I'm bored in a departmental store:

LOL PRETTY COLOURSSSS~!! Lately I've been going crazy with makeup samples when I've nothing to do at shops lol. You should see my nails now, they are a train wreck with me trying on a different coloured nail polish sample on each and when all ten are coloured and I see more colours that I like, I LAYER MULTIPLE COLOURS ON ONE NAIL. If I was still in secondary school the attire-checkers would have a stroke or something.

Also the other day I went to Watson's and was testing out the Maybelline BB foam or whatever. Was having a little bit too much fun with that thing, like seriously you spray it on your hand and it comes out sort of in a fluid state and after a second or two it freaking EXPANDS INTO A BOUNCY FOAMY MOUSSE. Oh god that had me enchanted and I just kept pumping it and I sorta made a bit of a mess in the store lol apologies to the staff who had to clean up after my childishness :\

Duck ramen at Ajisen, as part of their special summer promotion menu. I freaking love duck!! So fragrant and flavourful~ But this wasn't that awe-inspiring, especially since I'm not a big fan of Ajisen's ramens to begin with. They are always so FREAKING SALTY UGH.

Oh yeah they were handing out free popcorn on Friday at the Hilltop as part of SPSU's promotional campaign. Also got a bunch of free stationary and stickers. Free stuff is always welcome lol :P Especially since I was getting kind of peckish that time as I was helping Esther shoot her storyboard for VPDP. It's kind of a drag when you know you've gotta do work but VPDP is hella fun lol.

Kks it's getting late now so I'm gonna go watch a few more Youtube vids (read: 78 more) before hitting the sack. First day of my holiday job tomorrow oh god I'm really excited but also a bit scared hehe hope everything goes super smoothly and I am a rockstar at my new job lol.

Good night!

Effects of ITB On My Brain

Pasta is so awesome.

There's like, so many different kinds of sauces and stuff. Tomato based? Cream based? And you can have different herbs and flavourings. Carbonara. Pomodoro. Al funghi. Alfredo. And you can throw all sorts of ingredients in there! Veggies, meat, seafood, heapings of cheese. And have I ever mentioned before how much I love that there are so many noodle choices?! Spaghetti, linguine, penne, fusili, fun ass shapes, pasta in different colours. Oh my god this is exciting me too much. Pasta is so great.

Your Backside

It's been almost a month and a half since I last blogged...Excuse me while I go stand in a corner and hang my head in shame.

Yup, as usual the excuse is that I was just way too busy to write any posts. I was up to my neck in assignments, one submission after the other. On top of that, July was just a really rough and turbulent month for me. I'm glad to say now that all the stress and troubles of July are behind me (well, most of it anyway. I still have two projects left plus a test this Thursday) and I'm gonna make a conscious effort to keep this blog alive!

The truth is, I really do enjoy blogging. I don't know what it is about just snapping random pictures and posting them on the internet along with my rubbish ramblings that I find such immense joy in. A lot of people might find it stupid, especially since my life is fairly mundane. It's not like I'm constantly having amazing adventures to write about. Hell, most of the stuff I talk about isn't even the least bit interesting lol. But there's just something about capturing these little snippets of my life and sharing them with people across the vast interwebz, and maybe having someone out there actually care and enjoy reading what I have to say. Plus, I simply love writing :)

Right-o, it's almost three in the morning and I have to be at school later at 9AM (ARGH) so let's get down to it.


My mum got Turkey Bacon Cheesy Crumble from the 24-hour Pasta Mania at Changi Airport (bless!) for me so I brought it to school to eat as breakfast then again during our VC break teehee.

So delicious!!!!!!!!!!!! *squeals*

Bacon is amazing. And with turkey bacon, I can feel less guilty by constantly telling myself that it's the healthier option lol. I think it stops being "healthy" if I shovel down like 19 strips down my throat at one go...


After school I headed to Clementi Mall with my fam-fam. Family okay that was disgusting never say that again.

So, I rave on this blog about my love for salted egg yolk prawns in like every other post so I think it has been made pretty clear that I LOVE. SALTED. EGG YOLK. PRAWNS.

Well, let me present to you...

SOME WONDERFUL GENIUS CAME UP WITH SALTED EGG YOLK PORK. Every single bite was pure, sinful bliss. Little pieces of pork fried and smothered in a glorious salted egg yolk mixture. As rich and artery-clogging it is, I just couldn't get enough of it. I WANT SOME NOW OMG.

Shopped for a bit after dinner (and I got some books from the library too hooray do you know how tragic it is to not have time for leisurely reading ugh it is a horrible thing to not have enough time to devote to one's love for books) and we went to grab some ice-cream at Baskin Robbin's! YAY~!!

Sure enough, it's no Perth Baskin Robbins (not trying to be a pretentious, act angmoh brat but there really are slight differences between the ice-cream in Perth and Singapore's branches of Baskin Robbins) but I tried out one of their new (by new I mean I've never seen it before on previous visits lol the flavour could've been released ten thousand years ago) flavours and it was SO AMAZING, IT MADE ME CRY.

(not really)



I mean seriously, what's there not to like? Tiramisu is freaking delicious, my god. Saying you're not a fan of tiramisu is equivalent to saying you don't like cheese, WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?!

But anyweigh, as I wuz sayin'. This flavour is AMAZIN and y'all need to get ur lil tushy-tush down to the nearest Baskin Robbins (here is a link to their list of outlets, because I am nice and I just really want to share the taste experience with you guys. IT'S REALLY GOOD OKAY.) and get a scoop. Or two. Or three. OR FOUR OR FIVE OR JUST GET A WHOLE GALLON TUB OF IT AND INVITE ME OVER AND WE CAN FINISH IT OVER A NICE MOVIE OKAY.

Okie dokie it's like really late now and I have to be in school in about six hours time so I'll be heading to bed now but I'm not feeling weary at all (had Thursday and Friday off meaning I had a loooong weekend which lead to my sleep cycle being completely screwed up: I slept at 7AM yesterday) so I'm probably gonna play Candy Crush (so addicted to that shit omg) til I pass out and my alarm would go off two minutes later.

Hmm okay here's to me not fainting tomorrow!

Toodles for now and I really, reeeeally hope it won't be too long til I come and blog again!
