Okkkkay, I know this is waaay overdue, but here are the pictures from the STEAMBOAT/Hotpot session the other day.

List of Participants:
-Ah Ma (aka me)
-Kin Fatt
-Yang Hao
-Wei Fang

List of Ingredients:
-Pork slices
-Chicken thigh slices
-Pomfret (de-boned & sliced)
-Balls (as in meatballs, what were you thinking!?)
*no am not gonna continue cause it's getting lame*

OKAY LAH. NAH, your photos:
*In the Yang Hao household, guys prepare, and girls wait for dinner! Why? Cause in the whole house, Hao's the only one that can cook (alot of dishes)* Now that I think about it, it always the guys that are cooking, or preparing the food. 0.o"...

This is what my room looks like when...I am rushing an assignment! The horror...Yes, it is extremely messy, and all the clothes were on my bed cause I just took them out from the dryer~
*Yet, I complain Yang Hao's house is cluttered...=.="*

Made Toasted Onigiri TODAY for DINNER!

Ending on a lighter note, this is what Yang Hao looks like when he can't make up his mind about what to make for dinner!

*Yes, that is a metal pot on his head, feel free to smack it with a metal spoon*

OKAY! This post is by a Singaporean for Singaporeans or people that have been living in/live in Singapore. (In bold are the ones that apply to me)

Quoted from Facebook Groups:

A few signs you've been in singapore too long:

1. You don't see anything wrong with putting chili on everything you eat
2. Your idea of a good night consists of going to a hawker center, eating, drinking tiger beer, then going to another hawker to eat and drink again.
3. You would buy a $20 product you don't need on sale for $10 to save the money
4. "Crossing the country" means taking the mrt to the end of the line
5. You think corn and beans are dessert food
6. Most or all of these acronyms make sense to you: NUS; NTU; ERP; SDU; PAP; MRT; LKY; GCT; PRC; TIBS; SBS; SMS; JB; JBJ; AMK; AYE; PIE; ECP; ISD; ISA; 5 C's; CPF; CHIJMES; SPG; CWO; HV.
7. You use too many acronyms when you talk.
8. You think that $100,000 is a reasonable price for a Toyota Corolla and $1,000,000 is a reasonable price for a bungalow, but $5 for a plate of fried noodles is a barbarous outrage.
9. You know that Asian food outside of Asia is shite.
10. You have a naive belief that the war against ants will be won
11. You believe the government's justifcation for every action is substantial. (In order for us to be competitive in the 21st century...)
12. You think everything should be 'topped up'
13. You wear winter clothes indoors and summer clothes outdoors.
14. You think paying $50 bucks for a bottle of booze that costs $15 at home is a bargain.
15. You get irritated if you don't see a sign telling you how long your wait's going to be for a bus, a train, or the expressway to take you where you want to go.
16. You're certain that Holland Village is for hippie bohemian artist types and not overpaid yuppies.
17. When you cross the border into Malaysia you automatically and deeply fear for your life and your wallet.
18. No matter what you're doing at the moment, you'd rather be shopping.
19. You're impressed by high-rise apartment buildings with actual lobbies instead of bare exposed pillars on the ground floor.
20. You forgot what chewing gum tastes like.
21. You think chicken floss, corn, mayonnaise, and tandoori spices are proper pizza toppings
22. You think a bus is incomplete without a TV
23. You accept that expressways here are cleaner than toilets rather than the other way around.


You know you are from/in Singapore when:
1) You speak or randomly break out in Singlish
2) You crave chicken rice or the various uberlicious hawker foods

3) Tying a soccer game with Malaysia actually means something significant
4) You’re a guy and have no choice about National Service
5) You start daydreaming about $2 Nasi Lemaks
6) Orchard Road is a byword for fun
7) You pronounce and spell stuff the Brit way
8) You pick up the trash after missing the rubbish bin
9) You say rubbish bin and not trash can

10) You end ALMOST every sentence with a 'lah'/'lor'/'hor' and everything looks much better with 'x's and 'z's (right horxxzzz?)
11) You understand all the references in (and find the site funny)
12) You're intimidated by the thought of a 45 minutes to drive to the nearest mall.

13) You're shocked that your ez-link doesn’t work at Mcdonald's around the world
14) People ask you what you speak at home and you say 'uhh...'
15) You are able to communicate in plethora of languages & dialects
16) Swearing in numerous languages & dialects is natural

17) You know that Newton Circus serves up shit food, but still go there anyway
18) You “chope” seats at food courts/hawker centers with little tissue packets
19) You've sung the national anthem since you were in primary 1 and still have no idea what it really means
20) There's always a traffic jam near a vehicle accident 'cause everyone slows down to copy numbers for 4D
21) You start using abbreviations for everything, such as ERP, PIE, MRT, SBS, SMS, CTE, IPPT, NCC, SOC(army word)...... and many more.
22) You look at someone (when you’re overseas) and a 6th sense tells you that they’re from Singapore too
23) Someone asks for the time and your innate response is: “IT’S TIGER TIME!!!” *rawr*
24) Every Christmas, Orchard Road looks more like and more like Deepavali (The Festival of Lights).

GREEAT...Now I am missing Singapore's famous Chilli Crab...and more~

Today is an extremely unlucky day~

You know why?!

It's...FRIDAY THE 13th!!! =P Well, not much has happened, and I don't want anything to happen to me that doesn't bring good luck.

Well, having dissappeared like...quite a long time. I am not gonna put up a proper update yet, cause I still have 1 paper to study for (and I am obviously not doing that...0.o").

Well, AGRC1018 Introductory Biology paper was alright I guess. I didn't really manage to finish revising all 16 chapters, but I know I did my best and I am also hoping for the best. If I am lucky enough, I would be getting a GPA of 7, but if not, then it's prolly gonna be a 6, which I am pretty darn happy with. Joshua is so gonna ace the test, that VJ dude. Was like "Hey Josh, don't embarrass Victoria JC alright, since you are the only one here." (^-^)

Anyway, good luck to those people who are having papers today! Which happens to be quite a number of people I know...Don't let the "suay-ness" (unlucky-ness) of Friday the 13th get to you!

Been watching Youtube again! Was actually on the phone with Vanessa and we decided to "sing Karaokae" over the phone so I was initially looking for MVs on Youtube, then we hung and I continued searching and listening to JJ Lin's MVs, which led to some entertainment talk shows/game shows that he was in, which led to Xiao Zhu Luo Zhi Xiang/Alan/SHOW Luo's. I love Taiwan tv!!!!!!

But I gotta say...Out of all those singers that I love, JJ Lin has got to be my top favourite~ Maybe it's the fact that he composes his own songs, that he has a really soft/gentle-ish voice, that he hails from Singapore (go SG!) or other stuff. And honestly, I only 'chanced' upon his album along with Wilber Pan's and way it happened was really weird.
Was at Sembawang Music Store, Thomson Plaza outlet in Singapore, and I remembered that I was looking for somebody's album to buy but couldn't find it, and since my mum was paying that time, I didn't want to leave empty-handed so I just grabbed the 2 albums that caught my eye, which happened to be JJ's Second Haven (love the cover!) and Wilber's My Mic and since then, I have bought every single one of their albums!!!

They also happen to be the only ones whom I have the whole music collection of!! Wouldn't claim to be his "biggest fan" though cause I didn't go for his concert, neither have I bought the concert DVD nor have his posters all over my room nor do I have his whole DVD/VCD/CD collection (I have all the songs, not all the album versions).

OH, random note: I wanna learn to play the guitar~

Alright people...This group, known as Shift-1 from Australia are like the best! I think I saw them live before during the Buddha's Birthday Fest at South Bank. They are SICK!

and there's more of them on Youtube. Go and search ya!

This is pretty much the routine they did which I saw live.

OKAY, I take it back...This vid made me eat my words. U-Min, a dance group from Japan, also specialising in locking and popping are on par, if not BETTER than Shift-1. Check it out yo:

Was searching for some NP's NRA Dance videos on youtube just for the heck of it, and I found this, really CLASSIC video. It's some guys' version of 郭富城's 對你愛不完 dance. Classic and entertaining and of course, it incorporates the use of that "愛愛愛不完" dance part. 超經典! Lol!

And this is 0.o"...Dope! (Never thought I would actually use that word!) -Wait for the vids-


And I don't even know any of them! Like wtheck, 0.o"...Alright, back to Biology then.

Hi! Welcome to my blog.

This is the area where I rant and rave about everything and anything going on in my life.

If you are looking for recipes, the links to each single recipe will be located before the archives, just scroll down a little.

Usually, I talk about what's been going on in my life, my cooking, or my latest buys/holiday trips.

Time to time, I will introduce new websites that I find interesting, and online shopping haunts.

Thats about it!
