PSI
Wednesday, June 19, 2013 / 11:32 PM

I got a shock when it was PSI 190 at 8pm when I finished my appointment. After I went to buy some dinner and headed for the MRT then I wondered why Tiong Bahru MRT was super hazey when it's underground! On my way home, Baby messaged and said it has hit PSI 290 at 9pm. So I was walking home with my hand over my mouth. Recently at 10.30pm, NEA updated their website to PSI 321!!! HAZARDOUS MUCH! 

*Update* - 11pm PSI stands at 282

This is insanely ridiculous! In 1997, the worst PSI didn't go up this high, it only reached PSI 226. I wonder what will happen tomorrow~ Baby said that at 11.30pm they will be holding a press conference. But i'm too comfy to get out of bed!

will update soon!

Bonjour & Bonsoir
/ 10:33 AM

So I decided to try this Slimming drink called Bonjour & Bonsoir.


Bonjour in French is 'Good Day'
Bonsoir in French is 'Good Evening'

Both of them play very different roles.

Bonjour - you have to drink it before breakfast. This helps with the fat burning, body shaping and body firming. The flavour of Peach helps consumers to consume the drink easily. But it does not for me as it's too sweet for my liking, I have to drink lots of water after.

Bonsoir - Take this before you go to bed, it's a fibre drink it will help with constipation and detox. Although Bonsoir is quite easy for me to drink, it has a nice after taste. The Passionfruit flavour does not really help when you're drinking the drink. Please drink it after you have shake, as it becomes thick and gooey. When it has becomes like that it becomes harder to drink.

Each box comes with 15 sachets.

Apparently it gives you amazing results within 15 days, so i'm going to see if it does or it's just one of those marketing gimmicks to try and trick people into buying the product. I've been on it for 7 days already! They say you lose about 3 - 5 kg in 15 days, well I better be losing the weight if not what a waste of money..

Bonjour & Bonsoir, originated from France.

All over they advertise that you do not need to exercise, do not need to go on a diet, or get any injections and there's no caffeine in the product and best there's no side effects!

The product has a lot of before and after pictures of people who have tried the product. But you will never know whether the picture has been photoshop or taken from other places. Unless you have friends that have tried it and if you trust them, take their word for it that it works. Then you have some reliable source that the product actually works.

Let's see if there's any improvement to my weight after my 15 days are up!

If not i'm not buying this again and it's back to the gym during lunch for me.. Sigh~

-------

Update: 
It does not work please do not buy it plus my friend was reading the Chinese papers and she was telling me that it is banned in Singapore.. I was like OMG didn't know..

hazey
Monday, June 17, 2013 / 10:39 AM

Can the weather get any worse?!

Last night while watching TV with Dad, thank god we had the balcony glass door and the window at the laundry area closed as we had on the aircon. If not I would most probably running from one end of the house to the other trying to close them.

First came with the strong wind, that was crazily shaking our glass doors. After came the heavy rain.. Looks like it was storming with the wind and then came the freakish thunder and bright lightning. It was so near that it was so bright like someone flashed the flash into my eyes while I was doing my laundry.

Ok ok.. I admit I'm still afraid of thunder and lightning. I hate it to the core, because it always makes me jump! Baby knows it and when there's lightning and thunder and he's with me.. He makes me feel super safe!

But last night he wasn't so Dad was watching me jump and screaming out OMG!

Thank god! It didn't rain this morning.. But the haze is still here has been since last week. PSI reading at the moment is UNHEALTHY - PSI 111! Some one get me a mask! 

Updates: 9am - PSI 55 | 10am - PSI 57 | 11am - PSI 64 | 12pm - PSI 80 | 1pm - PSI 95 |
2pm - PSI 100  | 3pm - PSI 105 | 4pm - PSI 111

------

The max haze level that hit Singapore was PSI 155, it was so bad we didn't open the windows and the balcony door. If not we would have been choking on haze.


Haze just please go away!

Oh no!!!
Saturday, June 15, 2013 / 8:44 PM

Sad news.. My laptop is down and does not want to load my windows. Baby who will be my laptop's doctor will need to have a look at it to give me the diagnosis. 

The question is do I need a new laptop? My vaio is 3 years old, bought in 2010 Jan in Brisbane, Australia. 

My previous laptop RIP at the age of 3, died from the blue screen of death! Now I'm wondering if my Compaq HP laptop can be revived.. But I highly doubt it since it's a hardware problem. 

Feel so lost without my laptop, it was working last night. Now sure what happened.. Sigh!

-----

Update 17/06/13: I was super bored on the weekend as I didn't turn on my laptop because I know there's no point, until Baby takes a look at it. Tomorrow is the day when he comes and sees it (: He gets to see and play with the poopies after he has fixed my laptop!

We went there for lunch today, as we didn't want to eat opposite our work area. One of my colleague's he was looking through insing.com and found this place. Since all of us has never even heard or eaten there before, we ventured to the location and had really nice juicy burgers.

This is my second time there, the first would be when Baby took me there for our first Valentine's Day ♥


That was in 2011, ever since then we have not been back to this restaurant. So it was good that we dined there! Seems like they changed their menu as there are some items I have not seen or maybe I just don't remember.. But here are some of the dishes we ordered. (Didn't take pictures of everyone's food.)




1. House Signage
2. Truffle Taro Fries (OMG! They're AWESOME!)
3. Warm Toffee Chocolate Cake
4. Warm Strawberry Shortcake
(Picture looks good, but the taste was disappointing)
5. Curry Mustard Fries
6. Braised Pork Shoulder with Penne
7. Banana Salted Caramel Cake
8. Bitter Chocolate Tart
(The best out of the 4 desserts we ordered!)

If you like what you see, head down there and try their dishes (:

Poulèt
Wednesday, June 12, 2013 / 3:41 PM

We had dinner with bf's ex-colleagues at Poulèt amazing french roast chicken, at their Bugis+ outlet.


Their other outlets:
I've actually been here a few times and sad to say i'm not an adventurer to venture to try other dishes. End up eating pretty much the same thing every time I patronise at Poulèt.

Here's what we ordered..


1. Poulèt Menu
2. Sautè Wild Mushroom Soup
3. Poulèt Roti - Signature Roasted Chicken (Half) 
4. Mash Potato (creamy)
5. Braise de  Poulèt
6. Smith Chicken and Egg Mayo Sandwich 
7. Caramelised Granny Smith Apple in Puffy Tart
8. Panna Cotta 
(Taste like soy beancurd more than to eating Panna Cotta)

Overall the food was good, nice ambiance, great place to meet up for dinner with friends. 
Price is quite reasonable.

the marmalade pantry
Tuesday, June 11, 2013 / 10:08 AM

We had met up with a friend at ION Orchard on the weekend, we wanted to go to TWG, but both outlets (level 1 & 2) had a very long queue. So I suggested why not head to level 3 and see if The Marmalade Pantry had a queue. The queue surprisingly wasn't too long but we had to wait, I reckon that it was worth it. 


I had patronised at this restaurant before but that was quite long ago. I've tried their cupcakes before, actually had wanted to order one but at the last minute changed my mind as I spotted something I wanted to try - French Toast with caramelised pear and vanilla bean ice cream.


Doesn't it look yum! Sweet and savoury combined..

Baby had the Eggs Benedict and I had a small bite out of it.. Sad to say, I didn't like it as I know of better places for it like Tosh Restaurant on Beach Road, Hatched at Holland Village and Boomerang at Robertson Quay. Our friend had the Pork and Fennel Seed Sausage Lasagna with mushrooms and parmesan.

Unfortunately to my regret I had not snapped a photo of their food.

We ordered some Black Teas to go along with our food, I think I had ordered the wrong tea (Earl Grey Himalayas) as I didn't quite fancy it. But had a taste of our friend's tea (Malty Breakfast Tea) and I liked it. My tea had this taste to it that I quite disliked but Baby liked it, so in a way it was good.

구가의 서 (九家의 書)
Thursday, June 6, 2013 / 11:36 AM

I recently found another Korean drama that I haven't watched yet. I think i'm attracted to olden days kind of show. I would think the era would be like 'Faith' or 'Ja Myung Go'. Why? you might ask..
- because of what they're wearing.

Genre: fantasy, historical, romance.
The first glimpse of this drama happened when I was reading this article on allkpop.com.

The drama that i'm watching now is called 'Book of the House of Gu' also known as
'구가의 서 (九家의 書)/ Googauiseo'.




There's some familiar faces in this drama, Lee Seung Ki (Shinning Inheritance) as Choi Kang Chi, Suzy (Miss A, Dream High) as Dam Yeo Wool, Choi Jin Hyuk also known as Kim Tae Ho (Pasta) as Goo Wol Ryung [Kang Chi's Father], Jung Hye Young (Mischievous Kiss) as Chun Soo Ryun. The rest of the cast you can find here. There are 24 episodes in total, but they're still currently airing this drama. I can't remember exactly which episode i'm on, must check when I get home on my laptop. 


This is another drama i'm addicted to.. I have yet to finish watching City Hunter. It's been placed on hold for the time being. If you want spoilers/ synopsis this is what I have found. 

Happy watching!

vaccination
Wednesday, June 5, 2013 / 11:04 PM

Took a painfully long journey from my work place to Marine Parade after work. The jam was so bad, normally the journey would take me about 1 hr as I have to switch buses at Fullerton. But the journey today took 1hr 40mins. When bro came home I was complaining to him about how long it took me to get to point A to B and he agreed with me.

I went to Marine Parade, to see the doctor for my 2nd Cervical Cancer Vaccination. If I don't go baby will hound me down to no end. My left arm is currently super sore, there's so much I can do with a sore arm. Lol! I was actually trying to see how high my arm could actually go with the pain. I basically looked like a T-REX! But no matter what I washed my bowl and did my laundry.

Oh did I mention, showering is a bitch when you're one handed, it took me a while. Changing as well.. Took me ages to take off my dress, I somewhat got stuck along the way.

I've put in a reminder in my calendar so I won't forget to go for my last vaccination. Doctor said to go next month to finish it. Quite rush right! But no choice, I was suppose to finish all 3 vaccinations by the end of this month.. Oops! My clinic is a private one and the vaccination is super pricy compared to a polyclinic. I paid $214 for the vaccination and the consultation.. So in total I would be spending $642 for 3 vaccinations. Oh dear lord! This Cervical Cancer Vaccinations better do its job if not I went through so much pain for nothing!

I hope I will not sleep on my left arm, if not i'll be screaming in my dreams.

the decision
Tuesday, June 4, 2013 / 9:47 AM

Yesterday went to the Courts website, I have actually looked at that page before and have always noted that the item I wanted was $108. But I would like to think the GSS is helping me, the price has dropped to a nice  $69 and i'm saving $39. Thank god I didn't buy it the first time I layed eyes on it!
 

So was trying to make a decision and told Baby that I wanted to get it.. so he told me to get if I wanted. 
I made my decision yesterday over the internet to get it, picked the option to self-collect at Funan IT Mall from Thursday onwards before 14 days is up. 

Funan is the closest to work I suppose that's why I will be collecting it from there.. Straight bus anyways.

Also found some good recipes to try with my Ice Cream maker once I get it.

Watched this animation movie yesterday called Epic from Blue Sky Studios. Been wanting to see for a while and had to wait for it to come out last Thursday. It was almost a no go as baby's leg was acting up and he was in pain. But we managed to get to AMK Hub. Love you baby!
