Movie – Doctor Strange

We sneaked out again! This time round for Doctor Strange! What movie is this about? Honestly, I have no idea and neither does the lil’ hub. All I knew before I watched was that it’s under Marvel and the review seems not too bad, that’s about it. I don’t even know who is the main casts except that the guy’s face looks somewhat familiar, which I found out to be Benedict Cumberbatch, the guy who starred in Star Trek into the Darkness (still doesn’t ring a bell?)

Never mind!

It’s a nice movie, starting with something being stolen and weird people fighting in weird ways and then with the background of the story, showing Doctor Strange, a real doctor, operating complicated surgeries. He’s proud and confident, and so full of himself, until a tragedy happened and he couldn’t continue to be one. So he seeks for all types of treatments and finally found the Ancient one, that is where he began to open his mind… and that’s also where I stop so that I don’t spoil your movie. Oops.

Entertaining. Exciting. The lil’ hub commented that it’s a tad slow at the start but I thought it was quite good to build up the background of the story before jumping into it. There never really was any part where you get bored after that. Graphics were quite nice too. There’s probably only one thing which I don’t quite like. The monster. It looks a little too cartoon for me. Otherwise, thumbs up for this movie! I will give it a 4.5 for such an entertaining one.

Am also looking forward to the sequel, with the rest of the gang! Which gang? Well, stay after the credits then ^^

Ramblings – From Halloween to Christmas

5.47am – Cries and more cries. What on earth is happening? As much as I tried to pretend that I’m still dreaming, I could not. The cries are getting louder and it’s way too long. So I woke up and found my sis trying to calm him down while my dad makes the milk. I carried him over and calms him down. He stops crying almost immediately, a sign that he’s only thowing tantrums. I distracted him with songs till my dad finished making the milk. He drank and went back to sleep. Apparently he woke up an hour plus ago and refused to sleep. I really am very thankful that I’ve got my parents to help. Otherwise I think I will be more than a panda everyday.

7.14am – 2k more xp to level up to 28! Takes such a long time to level up nowadays…

7.31am – Oops. Forgotten that the kid has no school today. If only it wasn’t the month end, I might just take MC. Cough’s coming back again or should I say, it never actually left.

7.38am – Darn. Forgot to bring my organizer. What did I plan to do today?

7.51am – Level 28!

8.45am – Back at work. Last day of October. 2 more months to go. What should I do with it? There’s so many things that I want to do!

10.33am – Less than an hour before the Halloween event is over for Pokemon GO. Should I try and up my level? But I’m so tired…

10.52am – Rammaging through the photos in my phone. Ah… my mum’s going to nag on me for not developing the photos yet again. Am so tempted to buy that photo printer.

Here’s the lil’ hub eating the Snorlax instant noodle that we created in Japan with tomato chilli powder, kimchi, prawn, crab meat and can’t remember what’s the last one. Not too bad. Missed my holiday. I wonder when we will go back again… but at least I went before, finally.

picsart_10-31-10-51-18

Here’s my little milo who is growing up fast! Getting so naughty. Will try and spend more time with him. It’s so difficult to divide the time between so many parties.

1.41pm – Suddenly I recalled what happened last Friday when I was teleworking from home. Messaged my RO (who is only one grade above me) on some non-related work and then suddenly she said that hopefully our boss won’t asked where I am because teleworking needs to be approved by the MIC, and she is not my MIC. I was stunned (like vegetable), of course. My first reaction was ‘What the hell’. Why did you say ‘if you want to work from home then go on, I am ok’ when you are not the one approving. It is so bloody misleading!

Thankfully she didn’t ask and we managed to ‘cover up’ because she was late and wasn’t in the office. It was a close call. But because of this, I felt like I need to watch for my back. It’s like, last week she asked if I want to start the exercise, I told her I’m alright, just let me know what to do but now she’s doing it everything on her own again. Then how and when will she ever handover her stuff to me? Unless she don’t want to?

She seems harmless but well… I hope she is really harmless… anyway, I better try and buck up on my side and be more pro-active.

Took my lunch and ran some errands. Cleared my NTUC points and emailed to cancel it. Redeemed my IKEA points too. Then went to get a bottle of QV cream. Am so lazy for the past year but now my skin, teeth and hair are suffering. Sigh… if only maintaining all these can be easily done or at least scheduled with a press of a button. Then someone or something will guide you through it…

2.04pm – Watched one movie also so headache. Want to accompany your mum. Want to spend time with kids. See lah, it’s so difficult to spend couple time together because of one reason, we are not staying together. But whatever, I am done discussing with you on that lest we end up arguing AGAIN. I will just skip this movie or alternatively, go and watch on my own.

3.16pm – I just waited for 30 minutes on the phone, trying to talk to the customer service personel from OCBC. Goodness! Now I remembered why I didn’t really want to have any relation with this bank! And that NTUC lady isn’t that friendly in the email. Something’s so wrong with our customer service people.

3.27pm – Why are you so irritated today? Because I didn’t bring my organizer, and I accidentally spilled the soya sauce, then the lil’ hub couldn’t decide on watching the movie, and I waited half an hour for OCBC lousy customer service. Now I’m hungry ‘cos I’m trying to diet and thus didn’t finish up my rice but yet I’m not supposed to snack. I’m sleepy die to the disturbed sleep and now I am extremely grouchy!

4.50pm – Oh yes. Almost forgotten. The MIL had decided to go back to her house during that ‘homeless’ period. Actually more or less expected. Who would want to stay in other people’s flat when you’ve got your own. It will be at least from 3 to 6 months. Sigh… which means I can’t bake too.

4.59pm – Oh yes! Did I mention that I finally hatched a Lapras?! Yup, I did! And the 10k egg came from Kyoto, at a small fountain. I was telling the lil’ hub that it will be a Lapras because there are water (though it’s really small) and who knows it really is! Got a dratini and scyther as well from the other 2 eggs that I got it elsewhere. Am hatching another one now at 9.5km. Hopefully I will get another Lapras! *Lol* Maybe I should start walking now.

5.51pm – Stop tempting me. I am not going to eat you even though I am hungry. (Apparently eating half a bowl of rice can’t last me till the end of a work day)

Thoughts – A Twisted Fairytale

Once upon a time… there was a girl who likes to collect rubbish and things that are a waste of time… *LOL*

That’s it! After 2 weeks of rushing, the Halloween party 2016 is over! And I am so totally happy with the outcome of it! The effect of the decorations was definitely not too bad. Of course, again a very big thank you to my sister who is always there to support me in doing such things. And to the lil’ hub, who despite finds this a total waste of time, tried to keep quiet most of the time and let me do what I want, thank you for that too! And to all those who came and participated, thanks for coming. It’s just a small family party but I hope you enjoyed yourselves.

Well, I don’t have lots of photos to share because I was busy tidying up the loose ends such that I’ve forgotten to charge my hp. So I’m only counting on whoever had taken those photos to pass it to me. Anyhow, here’s a few on my 2 cuties and a group photo. Shall update on my decorations when I have the time.

Snow white & the seven dwarfs

picsart_10-31-09-30-21

Look who we have! Starting from left, I’m not too sure which character, followed by the colour wolf, Jack & the long beans, fat mad hatter (that’s me), Peter Pan that has changed, Snow White, Alice, Pinocchio & red riding wolf!

Tons of fun except for one thing. The buffet that we ordered from Neo Garden for a pax of 30 doesn’t seem sufficient. Seems like the quantity isn’t good when you ordered for less than 50 pax and it looks like that will be the last time we get our buffet from there.

Whatever! I’m going to get my sleep now. Goodnight folks! And Happy Halloween!

Food – Cafe & Meal MUJI @ Paragon

Recommended by my cousin – Cafe & Meal @ Muji. We were collecting the halloween donuts and thus happened to be around.

Located in Orchard Paragon, level 4, at a corner of MUJI, is where the small cafe is. It is a self-ordered cafe which reminded me of IKEA. There isn’t a wide range of food. Basically it seems like the chinese vegetable rice where you can choose between the dishes except that over here, it has been categorized into hot and cold.

picsart_11-01-01-04-14

I chose the deli 4, which cost around $17 and consist of 2 hot items, 2 cold items and a dessert. On top of that I added a drink, a plate of fries and miso soup to share with little milkie.

picsart_11-01-01-01-49

picsart_11-01-01-02-59

The quantity was alright. Price is a little high for me as it seems to be just normal meat, vegetables and rice. But the ambience was good, at least I like it. And the food tasted nice too so because of that, I don’t mind going back there for some food and drinks.

So far there’s only 2 branches around. One in Paragon and the other in Raffles City. Can hop by if you want to try some Japanese food.

Food – Saveur @ The Cathay

Fancy some French cuisine?

I’m currently here at Saveur, the branch located at level 1 of The Cathay, between Starbucks and the side entrance.

First impression of this place? It doesn’t appear to me as French cuisine as the idea of French cuisine are usually eaten in posh restaurants. The interior is more of those industrial style design but the whole place does look spacious.

picsart_11-01-06-21-04

There isn’t a lot of varieties of food but I supposed it’s suffice. I ordered a seabass while most of my colleagues gotten themselves a duck leg. The order took a while to come as it’s the lunch time (although I don’t see a big crowd). I think because of the distance away from the MRT station, people are not willing to walk over to this place, where the route to here are not sheltered generally. So if it rains, I guess it will be quiet. But if you want a nice quiet place to have a meal, this seems to be a rather good choice.

Anyway the food came and I was quite pleased with the portion. At least my fish wasn’t just a small little piece.

picsart_11-01-06-19-53

And the amazing thing is, it actually tasted good! My colleagues made the same comments except that the portion is a little too small for the guys. But for the gals, it’s more than enough!

What’s the best thing? The price. For a plate of seabass, it cost only $16.90 (excluding the service charge and GST), which is definitely quite reasonable.

Quite a nice place, I would say. But with that location, and considering the parking charges (or ERP), I would reconsider it. Nonetheless, it’s still not too bad.

Thoughts – Trapped in Your Shadow

For the first time in years, I felt a strong desire to break free of your clutches and fly. It’s been too long. Way too long. And because of you, I felt like a bird, trapped in a cage, unable to fly. I was always behind you, right under your shadow, following you wherever you go. But why should I? I can be better. In fact, a lot better! Every inch of it!

Today, I have finally decided and am determined to leave you, forever. Maybe i will visit you again, some day, but it won’t be for long.

I want to be in the sky. I want to breathe the fresh air. And most importantly, I want to be happy.

So long, you *beep*, for imprisoning me for so many years. I’m ready to fly!

Food – Mdm Kwan’s @ Vivocity

I’m pretty sure my body must have that it was deprived for 2 weeks for ever since I came back from Japan, I simply wants to eat and eat.

Today, I finally get to try this local food at Mdm Kwan’s, located at level 1 of Vivocity at the back (beside Brotzeit, near the Information counter). We’ve walked pass this restaurant several times but as it sells local food, the lil’ hub wasn’t very agreeable as such food caj be easily found at the hawker centres. I really wondered how did my sister manage to convince him. *feeling weird*

There were quite a lot of varieties from dishes to mains and sides with prices generally on average ranging from $11 to $18. We ordered 6 mains, a vegetable and 3 drinks and the total damage was less than $140 for 5 adults + a kid. Normal restaurant price but nice food!

You will hardly hear any praises from the lil’ hub but he was commenting that the food tasted nice. I didn’t get to take a picture of all the food that we had as I went in a tad late. So here’s 2 of them which I managed to catch, intact, because it happens to be mine and my sister’s (who were out with me to grab something).
