last week and, in a way, it was a bad thing because for over a year, I have spent almost all my Friday and Saturday nights (aside from less than 10 nights) working. So when the schedule showed that I had both Friday and Saturday nights off, I thought I was going to spend it drinking or out partying or doing something.

Friday night was bo-ring. Because everyone knew I was usually working on weekends, everyone else I knew had plans or were out drinking and partying. So I actually got home before midnight on a Friday night. Okay, now that sounded rather loser-ish. HA!

Saturday was spent roaming around VivoCity with Weili. He wanted to spend on something but could not find anything that he liked. So we headed over to Marina Square to have dinner at MOF @ My Izakaya. Ever since I tried MOF with 7ners to celebrate Perrine’s 23rd, I have been back there around five times within two weeks

We saw the fireworks! As it was the preview for the National Day parade, we happened to catch the fireworks display outside the shopping mall

After not purchasing anything for the whole afternoon, he finally surrendered and entered Topman. There, we found two Fraggle Rock tees that were pretty cool that were going at half price. He got Boober and I got Wembley.

For the whole afternoon, he had this crazy mood to get his tongue pierced. So I brought him to my piercer at Parkway Parade. After that, we chilled at Maccas where I taught him how to eat fries. It was hilarious watching him suffer (and I think I’m going to suffer when he reads this :? )

After that, Guan picked me up and together with Nic and Amanda, we went to The Wine Hut since I suggested red wine a few days ago. I can’t remember which wine we had, but it was good and we almost got another bottle.

Sunday, Joel didi and I met at Harbourfront Centre at 8 in the morning because we were heading to Batam to cable ski for the whole day at Waterfront Cable Ski Park.

I was bored at work at the office. And after reading through Aein‘s list, I decided to write one as well. (I found out a lot of things that Aein and I share.)

So, if you’re bored or you want to know some things about me or if you just like reading lists about people, feel free to read my 100 Things List

The last time I watched a movie was… when Andrew wanted to watch 21 and I wanted to watch Wanted (because it’s just plain cool to shoot the wings off a fly. Well, and plain mean, but whatever).

Basically, it wasn’t too long ago. But last Saturday, I watched two movies in a day. (And, I can’t find a link between the previous paragraph and this. Then again, I can be very random and say things that have totally no link. My colleagues realized this recently when I kept jumping from basketball to my mom to the weather. Really. I’m such a sad kid.)

After our shift on Friday, Charlene started persuading everyone else to catch a midnight movie. We were all going, “Is there even a showtime at four in the morning?” And it turns out that there are shows and I really wanted to catch Hellboy 2: The Golden Army but we missed it by about 15 minutes So we caught Hancock instead.

It’s not a great show to spend $10.50 on but it’s quite cool. The plot is quite… different, I think. Jianling, Allan and I fell asleep since we were so tired. But I enjoyed it because Charlize Theron is HOT

By the time I got home, it was about 7 and I slept till 6 in the evening because I was going to watch Hellboy 2 with Andrew and some of his friends

Hellboy 2 was cool! I never watched the first one and the only reason why I wanted to catch the second was because I saw the trailer and it looked pretty neat. The Red Guy is really funny. Saufi and I liked the way he handled things—giving a punch to the opponent in the middle of a sentence

It wasn’t fantastically fantastic. Still, I enjoyed the movie.

On a random note, Simpang Bedok is a recent chill out place, again.

Okay, so I owe you readers my photo-filled post. Anyway, presenting an interesting list…

“The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they’ve printed.”

  1. Look at the list and bold those you have read.
  2. Italicize those you intend to read.
  3. Underline the books you LOVE.
  4. Strike out the books you have no intention of ever reading, or were forced to read at school and hated.
  5. Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who’ve read 6 and force books upon them.
