A Series of Events

It’s been a long time i update my blog. But i’m just going to run through some memorable ones.

Microsoft PreMix 2007
I received an extended invitation by Microsoft through Lester. It’s a sneak preview of the trade event, ReMix 2007, the following day. I think it is really eye opening to see the latest softwares and technologies that Microsoft has developed. I’m interested in the standalone applications developed by Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) while Lester is interested with the Silverlight video streaming and video editing. Of course, the outputs are only performable with the Windows OS. Unless you really hate Microsoft, if not there is no other reason not to know about that.

Here are some of the pictures taken by Nic and Leon. I was also inspired by the amount of prototypes done. You never know when these prototypes can be further develop them into useful scenarios.

Sureeporn’s Visit To Singapore
2 years ago i visited Thailand with Lester’s family. We are well taken care of by the Glico’s Thailand staff, one of them is Ms Sureeporn. This time round, she came to Singapore for business so we bring her around on the last day.

Can’t deny that it’s like meeting a very old friend, a lot of things to catch up. Morning we brought her to Ng Ah Sio Bak Kut Teh. Soup is superb but oiler than Ah Hua’s Bak Kut Teh. It’s fulling breakfast i would say.

Sentosa is our next stop. I find it embarrassing to tell Sureeporn the frequency of a Singaporean visiting Sentosa – i say it in a nicer way “Singaporeans only come for the beaches”. Took the cable car to Sentosa, visited The Merlion and The Underwater World. It’s really expensive after you total up the bill.

From them, part time in Thailand has no pay. To them it’s the experience gain that is important. Only a few will provide allowance. Whoa~

ADM Modules Registration
As usual, in a mess… Hate ADM!

It’s only when talking to Nicole then i realise that if you mentioned that you are a student, they will charge you student price… This time the rebonding ain’t that great. The parting is all wrong and generally not that straight. I got a fright when i wash my hair this morning, my fringe part into 2 right in the middle despite that they should come down straight.

Pasta De Waraku @ The Central
Discover this excellent pasta place at The Central. They serves lots of variety of pasta, from the conventional cream and tomato based one to something that you din try before. Starter comes with a small bowl of greens with Japanese plum sauce, refreshing. Lester ordered the Cream Bacon & Potato while i tried the unconventional Wafu Chicken & Mushroom. Wonder what is Wafu based sauce? I can’t describe either. But it’s clear, something like stock and toss with olive oil and garlic. Light and not oily. Next time maybe i will try the soup pasta instead.

Did i say it’s Japanese pasta? This can out beat the The Ambush and The Sketches which we two frequent a lot.

Pete’s Place
Early celebration for Lester’s mum birthday. Brunch at Pete’s place Hyatt Hotel. Good spread of Italian buffet but my delights are the Minestrone Soup, Serberts, Fish and Crayfish. I only go 1 round of main course and 1 round of dessert. It’s a pity.

Manicure and Pedicure
My first visit at a nail salon at Vivo City. Aunty Jas’s treat on her package for me and Hui Min. I got dark red for my nails and shimmering pink for my tiny little short toe nails. Pampering myself~ Hahaha~

Swelling Lips
My gums and corner of my lips show symptoms of allergies. Poor me~

Sherlock Holmes
Bought a complete series of Sherlock Holmes’s story book. It’s very catchy to even read the first paragraph. But the journey on the bus makes me wanna sleep.

Ups & Downs
There seems to be a lot of downs between us this week. I apologise for the tick-tocking. Sorry darling~
