seventh anniversary . etch&bolts . hawker chan

Making brunch!

Tadaa!Β The apple baked ham was really good, it was on offer. $1.75 for 100g.
Also made a huge pancake because I was sick of frying the pancakes one by one. Put some oranges over so it could be a dessert but we were too full by then. Mission fail.


Where we went today.

The things are quite pretty.

Got cats too!


First time tried the Michelin rated soy sauce chicken at Hawker Chan. The chicken and very tender and juicy! Maybe can buy the whole chicken back home to share.

sixth anniversary . joo bar

Wearing my new watch! 😍😍😍

And then… I can’t wait for dinner already. πŸ˜‹
We are still going to work, so it’s not going to be a full day celebration. Plus, his reservist just ended too, sure got a lot of things to clear.

☝☝ Not open today. πŸ™


We decided on Joo Bar instead.

My jaw looks so prominent here. πŸ˜…
Happy Anniversary to my Superman no. 2! Hahahaha! He can only be no. 2 because Papa will always be my no. 1. 😁

We ordered the Makgeolli sampler set and there was 1-for-1, so we ended up having one each.

1. Original
2. Yuzu
3. Passionfruit
4. Blood Orange
5. Lychee

We liked lychee most! Passionfruit may be too thick and sweet.



We had spam fries. The texture doesn’t feel like normal spam though, it’s good.

Grilled mangalitsa belly was very very good. Noms!

Seafood gochujang risotto. It’s cheesy, I can’t take it in huge spoonfuls if not the smell very kill me. Lol. But it’s pretty good, just not amazing.

anniversary – nixon watch

TC got me an anniversary present! Even though I asked him not to because I wanted us to get something else together. πŸ™‚

πŸ‘¦ Guess what I got for you? *Takes out a white box & tries to cover a certain part*
πŸ‘§ Hmm… *Walao I never buy* 😐
πŸ‘¦ Hur hur. Feel guilty right? Guess what is this…
πŸ‘§ It’s a Nixon.
πŸ‘¦ 😲 How you know???
πŸ‘§ The logo is right there mah! In the middle.
πŸ‘¦ But I don’t even know the logo looks like this.
πŸ‘§ Because I’m good with visuals leh. Heh heh.

Actually this is a fake, you see…

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ walao eh! Don’t try to cheat me! He confessed that he really thought it was a fake and contemplated to complain… but then Amazon Japan’s authorized seller, cannot be fake.

Hahahahhaha! Oh my tian. If he really complain hor… πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ He will be one of those crazy customer.

I really liked it!!! The wanted to get this watch when I saw it at Okinawa but the logical me told myself that I should not be spending so much when we’re only at the first part of the trip. I just kept standing at the glass display looking at it. 😍 Now I have it. 😍😍

Need to get it resized though. It’s too big for my wrist. πŸ˜„


Getting my watch resized now!
I support old watch shops! Lol lol. Actually mostly is because I prefer experienced people like them. ☺

Okay, I didn’t managed to get it resized because they told me that I have to leave it in the shop for a day. They need to pour oil to remove the screw…

I’m like… hell no… what if the oil is yellowish then wouldn’t it get absorbed into in watch. 😣 No no. Not gonna let it happen. I’m gonna look for a shop that holds Nixon watches, I think they would know better.


Chicken porridge! Nom. Having the same chicken soup for 3 days. Haha!

Thin oreos be like… okay lo. Like eating half the biscuit only. If you’re going to get fat anyway, eat the original. Don’t try to cheat yourself.


Woohoo! This hatched!

And I finally got you! Caught dragonite no. 2 right at my office seat too. ✌


I really like this dress I’m wearing. Should I get another from Taobao? The cut and quality damn good la.

Sparkly ice-cream and the flashy camera.

Met up with boyfriend after his work and he surprised me with an anniversary gift!

I love it, love it, love it! This is going to go very well together with my Juicy Couture case.

He wanted to get something else initially but this will do for now. =)

Thank you, Pi! Love you loads and loads and loads!

Oh! And he caught me Shappo of Sentimental Circus at Arcadia. I’m so in love with it now, too cute! It’s just so me, like a Gemini.

Ooooh. I thought I would never get hooked by these characters. Hello Kitty was a big no-no (too common), the rest were cute but “oh well, just another”. Sentimental Circus is very much different from the rest.

Fabulous Anniversary.

Today marks the day of our first anniversary! Yeah! We haven got anything planned, something else just happened suddenly a few days ago and thus we don’t have to plan anything at all.

Boyfriend rings me while he was still working, you have to know we hardly talk on the phone.
Me: Hello. Yes?
Bf: Do you want to go to Taiwan?
Me: Huh?
Bf: Do you want to go to Taiwan?
Me: Huh? I don’t have the money.
Bf: I won tickets to Taiwan.
Me: Really?! Yeah!!!!!! (I practically just went crazy.)

Yup, he entered the Taiwan 100 logo design and won first prize! Aww~ My boyfriend is the best. ❀

So we had to attend the prize award ceremony which is on our anniversary at Shangri-La Hotel, food and drinks provided.

That is his winning entry.

Though we think there are other entries which are good too. Well, we have no idea what was the winning criteria.

I’ll just let all of you take a look around the place – the reception.

Inside the main ballroom.

I seriously can’t wait to eat them!

The ceremony is starting… That is Taiwan’s representative Vanessa Shih.

Oh, here comes Mr. George Yeo.

Boyfriend receiving his prize. Phew. I actually managed to squeeze my way in to get a good view to take photos together with the group of reporters.


The braised meat rice is super good but the queue was super long. There’s xiao long bao too but it’s already in my famished tummy.

And yes, I’ve got my desserts!

That’s the birthday cake and I have to say that it is strangely yummy. It’s chocolatey, moist, chewy and a little sticky at the same time. It’s just difficult to describe but I would love to have it again.

Guess where we are off to next?

Singapore Flyer!

This is the champagne cabin, we’ve just taking the normal one.

How do you feel? Good?


Look at those lights.

Marina Bay Sands.

That’s me.

Boyfriend started taking a few pictures, I don’t know what he is trying to do.

Okay, back to normal.

As promised, my super-boyfriend.

We really think the designer was eating something during mid-autumn while doing the design.

If you get what I mean…

The big boyfriend and tiny me.

Goodbye! He’s busy catching butterflies again. Haha…
