Our Private Wedding Dinner

After our wedding dinner at Holiday Inn Park View for friends and family, we checked out on Oct 17 and went for our own private wedding dinner, just the 2 of us. Just to reward ourselves for the effort we both put in for the wedding.

So the hubby was very sweet, he thought of a place, made a reservation and brought me there as a surprise..

Thai Village @ Goodwood Park Hotel

They apparently have the best shark's fins in town.. well then this I have to try!

We walked in and sat down at a nice table in a corner. I was immediately infected by the happy atmosphere in the air. the clinking of chinese teacups, delicious slurping of soups, the chattering conversations, the booming laughters, hustling of footsteps of waiters and banging of pots and pans in the kitchen. It felt very local and welcoming, but in a controlled kinda environment so it was not unbearably noisy/rowdy.

the hubby wanted to really splurge on dinner that day and so we went for the top of the range set meal in the restaurant.

we were 1st served with their famous shark's fins.. check it out.. the shark's fins comes in a big lump! and the soup was to die for. i will nv be able to taste another bowl of shark's fins without thinking of this taste ever again! And mind you, this whole claypot, was one person's serving only!!

then came the abalone. one whole abalone each. ok la, i suaku.. but this is only the 2nd time I am eating abalone like this! the taste was so rich.. and the abalone was so succulent and chewy.. and the sauce.. beyond this world.

Next up, the lobster. well the lobster paled in comparison to the 1st 2 dishes but it was a nice change of taste. steamed with garlic and spring onions, it really brought out the freshness of the lobster.

I was really stuffed at this point.. so when the next dish arrived, I had to force myself to take a few bites and not waste it totally. Here is the egg noodles fried with chunks of crab meat and prawn.

Hubby had the corn rice instead of the noodles. the rice was really fragrant.. anyone who is a corn lover would love it.

And finally, the dessert.. I was trying very hard to save some stomach space for this, but I was so stuffed at this point, hubby had to literally force me to eat it. ok this is going to sound really bimbotic but i had to force-feed myself with the birds' nest! don't get me wrong, it was deilcious! in fact, it was the best birds' nest i have ever tasted. birds' nest chilled in coconut water! It was so refreshing!

and look at the amount of birds' nest in that bowl! no joke, i had to force-feed myself!! but nevertheless, YUMS!!!

And by the end of the dinner, we were both almost bursting at the seams. but very happily so. :)

Lastly, I want to thank each and everyone of the those who came for our wedding. You made a different to the wedding, just by being there.

Really, thank you! :)

One Year.

On this exact day one year ago, i passed my driving test!

This means, today I can finally keep my P plate away and drive like any other road user!

Well, i am having mixed feelings abt that cuz I think i can blame my P plate for a lot of mistakes that I make while on the road. But now I am P plateless.. it's like I am expected to drive like an old bird and make good judgments when driving. Wa, very hard for me leh.

And I think when i have my P plate up, ppl tend to "siam" me. which i like. haha.. but some of them also tend to cut my lane, and blow their horns at me for the slightest mistake i make, ie. bully me. Singaporean drivers are really the worse sometimes.

But well, anyhoo.. i guess it marks some kind of achievement that I have gone past one year without getting into any kind of big trouble. :p

I hope I will be able to say the same, next year this day.

For some of you reading this now, I am looking forward to seeing you this thursday. :)

My October is here!

I am like, 6 days late, but who cares.


Now I have more reasons to LOVE OCTOBER! Everyone's favourite month of the year is normally their birthday month.. and I am no different. I am an October Baby and proudly one!

And from this year onwards, I will also get to celebrate another important day in my life, besides my birthday. MY WEDDING DAY!

Today, I am officially into the single-digit countdown to the actual day.

What can I say, I am excited, jittery, stressed and frustrated, all at the same time!

Excited - Cuz my sisters and my biological sister are doing a great job in keeping me happy amidst all the stress. And of cuz, for all the amazing help they've rendered so far.

Jittery - I am suddenly experiencing glossophobia. which is weird cuz I am a people person and I have nv really been someone who gets nervous with big groups of ppl!! But the thought of being in a room full of ppl i love watch my every move.. is very nerve-wrecking!! i now realise you have to be very narcissistic and have super high self-esteem to be a celebrity!!

Stressed - Cuz I am not getting help in some of the areas I need help for. And those ppl who can help, are not helping. I shall not name-drop here.

Frustrated - The same group of ppl mentioned above, are not only not helping me, but expecting me to help them too. it is infuriating. If i get a nervous breakdown before next Thursday, you can bet on my lovely tresses it is because of them.

Speaking of tresses, I have gotten them coloured and treated, all ready for the big day! Glad to know I have one thing done on my list of to-dos.

For now, I am fixing the minor hiccups that has not failed to surface every day. I shall take it in my stride and TRY not to flare up at anybody.

It's my wedding and it shall remain a happy event because I am willing it to!!!!!

*Forces a big grin*

How do I get rid of you????

I really shouldn't be having such friendship problems at my age. But I really don't want someone as a friend anymore. In fact, I don't even want her in my life.

But she keeps coming back to me, and it's like as if I am obliged to help her BUT I AM NOT! I hate it, I hate her!
