7th March: Macarons from Jewels

        P3070895   P3070904P3070898       

Yohan bought me Jewels.. For a moment I thought i had a diamond ring.. But he knew I didn’t like diamonds.. So thank god for that.. But he is just so sweet and full of surprises..

So it was actually macarons from Jewels Artisan Chocolate

The flavours were a little weird but some were interestingly likeable..

From the top:
Passion Fruit (Filled with passion fruit conserve & almond cream)
Black palm island salt (Filled with salted egg & almond cream topped with black palm island salt)
Raspberry (Filled with raspberry conserve & rose almond cream)
Butterfly Pea Bloom (Filled with kaya & pandan almond cream)
Green Tea (Filled with green tea & dark chocolate crunchy pearl)

I didn’t really like the fruit ones cuz they were too common… Personally, I liked the black palm island salt.. Probably because I like salted egg… Butterfly Pea Bloom was really weird though.. Pandan and macarons… was not quite a good match for me.. It probably needed something else…

Suat, Jiemei and I were to meet at Shokudo for dinner to celebrate out 10 years of friendship.. The nicest part? They finally get to meet Yohan!

So, how did we gals celebrate out 10 years anniversary? Nothing beats…. Neoprint!!! :D

Each of this moments costs $10!! But something special this time.. We have Nicolas (Yohan’s buddy) to film down our neoprint process!! It is rather ridiculous, but its such great moments!!

Yohan finally had a chance to meet my best friends Jiali and Samuel.. We decided on meeing at Illuma Bugis for dinner and chilling… What did we order? A Burger huge enough to feed four!!! The burger was good.. (How bad can a burger be?) Simple all American style food.. with all that calories.. how can the food not taste good?

13th Feb 2010: Chinese New Year Eve 2010

It was Yohan’s first Chinese New Year in his life and I was so excited to spend the three days of Chinese New Year with him.. My boy was so interested in the Chinese Culture that I had to research many origins on my own before I could tell him stories about certain traditions.. Haha…

P2130855  P2130857

Yohan had his first “Yu Sheng” and the story of Yu Sheng is in the link provided.



The neighbourhood called in a catering company, Pin Si,to cater to New Year Eve’s Reunion Dinner for about 4 households. My mum had about four tables for our family and Ah Mei auntie;s family..   IMG_2280IMG_2281

The greedy table started the Lo Hei first.. Lol…

Before Lo Hei…


After Lo Hei…


Everyone was so into my sister’s camera.. My cousins in particular… :S
