Happy Children’s Day!
So, no holidays for the tertiary kids. But, shorter schooling hours are good Jolene and I planned this shopping trip since last Tuesday since we were feeling down and needed a day to relieve everything. Boy, it sure worked wonders.
We met up at City Hall to check out some skinny jeans at Peninsula Plaza since they were around SG$20. However, we did not fancy the material much (although the colours were really striking).
So we took a train to Somerset and hung out at Flash and Splash at The Heeren for almost an hour or so trying out various Emily Strange clothes. She ended up getting a skirt while I got two Emily Strange tops and a watch because they were going at half price
We walked to Lido, hoping to catch a movie. However, the timings did not fit into our schedule so we just grabbed Subway cookies instead (since she was craving for some peanut cookies :D). We headed to DFS Galleria in hope to look at the alcohol section again (I can hear Jason calling us jiu gui) but they only had whiskey on display
So we crossed over to Far East Plaza as she needed a new belt. Wei Zheng joined us there and I bet he regretted it since we took quite some time looking at belts and bracelets
After he left for work, Jo and I wandered around till I decided to head down to Parkway Parade to get my left ear pierced yet again
Nicole never really understands why I like going all the way there to Stege to get my piercings done but I guess I just like Desmond
After getting my fourth ear hole, I checked out Esprit and walked out SG$50 poorer but with three nice t-shirts
Retail therapy is so great with you, sister!
The Legend of the Condor Heroes (1983 TVB Production) will always be my all-time favourite sword-fighting show. Ever When I saw that the DVD was on sale at YesAsia, I told myself that I was so gonna get it. Well, once I figure out how to fork out SG$100 first :? Anyway, if you’re bored with nothing to do and you love sword-fighting shows as much as I do, maybe you would like to read up on The Legend of the Condor Heroes
National Champs are finally over. After this week’s break, we are so going to train hard for SRRR08! Artello! Let’s all jia you together!
Yesterday, I took a nap after a Screwdriver and woke up at 4 in the morning to see Elisia off at the airport. She should have landed by now.
Perrine and James were there as well. I arrived in a cab (that drove at 110km/h) just after the family was done checking in. So we settled at a cafe, had some drinks and talked till it was time for them to board their plane.
As we parted ways when they entered the transit area, I felt this familiar stab of pain in my chest. It took quite a lot of will power to push those tears back to where they came from. I guess it is a bit silly to cry over this goodbye.
After seeing the last of Elisia from the viewing gallery, Perrine, James and I sat down at Coffee Bean and started talking. Well, Per fell asleep while James and I chatted After an hour or so, she left for home while he was being ARNG and accompanied me to some place to “poke more needles into my finger/hand”. (I needed a translator and darling Jennifer was too tired to get out of bed.)
(I’m sorry for this odd title. But somehow, I don’t know how to put “7ners” in the title for this entry.)
Last night, it was one of the final gatherings for all eight of us before Elisia leaves for the States for her studies. It is such a nice timing as Peiwen is back from Down Under and PK is back from her attachment in China. So, well, lots of goodies from them
We had dinner at Hog’s Breath Cafe at CHIJMES where Soffie and I shared some chicken main course.
It was like a farewell dinner as well as celebrating Perrine’s 22nd
The Earlybirds: Soffie and I
Elisia, Jo, PK, CJ, Peiwen, Soffie
Perrine and me
Oh, yes. During our e-mail discussions, Jo was asking whether there were any funky dress codes this time. (The last gathering was for my birthday celebration last month and I requested everyone to turn up in either a dress or a skirt.) And somehow, no one really came up with a dress code. So when Soffie, Jo, PK, CJ, Peiwen and I met up at City Hall, we were quite surprised to find that we were wearing either black, white or grey-toned clothings. Then Peiwen commented that we were like in mourning
On Sunday, Team Artello (minus Lizhen) had dinner at Kenny Rogers at Marina Square with Kang Jun and Janneth. It was a combined dinner for both of them since we wanted to show our appreciation for teaching and guiding us for months for the former, and a gathering before the latter goes into BMT.
Food was great! Great because they had my macaroni and cheese I remember back in the past, I refused to eat Kenny Rogers if they had no mac and cheese.
The Man paid it all :mrgreen: and refused to take any of our money. He said that all we needed to do was train hard for National Championships.
Jolene‘s not too happy she’s on the left
The finals for SRRR were held at the Singapore River itself on Saturday. It was a very tiring experience for me because I had no rest the night before and had a full day ahead.
Everything was delayed. So Geok Cheng, Teresa and I met Jolene at Clark Quay MRT station only to head to MacDonald’s for breakfast. I think I kind of snoozed while everything was being set up. At 10 a.m. (when the first match of TP 1 and Monsters Inc. was supposed to start), the guys were still fixing the goal post and the lines. So Jolene, Joan and I went to MacDonald’s again where I had my second breakfast.
