唯美情书 (Touching short messages)

Found these on the internet.  Some of them are so so so poignant. There’s bound to be more than one which you can resonate with.  I can resonate with over half of them…

I’ll do a translation at some point if I’m free.  And, for the sake of your sanity, don’t use Google Translate.

  • 我只爱对你发脾气,因为我潜意识相信你不会离开我。胡闹原来是一种依赖。
  • 我很想知道,当我的名字滑过你耳朵,你脑海中会闪现些什么?
  • 如果全世界都背叛了你,我会站在你背后背叛全世界。
  • 我最幸福的时刻,就是找对了人。你纵容我的习惯,并爱着我的一切!
  • 有一种爱,明明是深爱,却说不出来。有一种爱,明明想放手,却无法离弃。有一种爱,明知是煎熬,却又躲不开。有一种爱,明知无前路,心却早已收不回来。
  • 当我真正爱上了你,我发现,最终我想要的,只是你能快乐。哪怕,不是与你。
  • 很多时候,男人会让你觉得他爱上了你,其实他真没有;而女人会让你觉得她不可能会爱上你,结果她却动了心。
  • 很奇妙的一种感觉是,曾经的陌生人,突然之间成为了我的整个世界。
  • 如果有一天我不再烦你,如果有一天,你的生活中没有了我,没有了每天的电话,每天的留言,每天的关心,每天的小脾气。我把一切一切都表现了出来,你知道了,清楚了,了解了,最终感动了,可是我却离开了。
  • 每晚睡前听你说晚安,是属于我的,最简单而持久的幸福。
  • 喜欢记忆中,你拥抱我的温度。喜欢记忆中,你体贴的话语。喜欢记忆中,你给我依靠的肩膀。
  • 你以为,我可以什么都不在乎。其实,我也只是一个女孩,也是会偷偷地掉泪的。
  • 有时候,露出笑脸,只是不想让你担心或难过。但其实,我没有你想象中那么坚强。
  • 在乎才会乱想,不在乎连想都不会想。
  • 别忘了答应自己要做的事情,别忘了答应自己要去的地方,无论有多难,有多远。不要忘了,曾经对自己许下的爱的承诺。
  • 你会不会忽然的出现,在街角的咖啡店。对你说一句,只是说一句,好久不见。
  • 当你真的在乎一个人,多么微不足道的小细节,也变得重要起来。因为爱,所以在乎,因为重要,所以爱。
  • 我可以一个人唱歌,一个人喝咖啡,一个人涂鸦,一个人旅行,一个人逛大街,一个人在雨中漫步,一个人听音乐,一个人自言自语,一个人发呆,一个人跳舞,一个人看电视,一个人翻杂志… 只有爱你,是我一个人做不到的。
  • 不要说爱我,除非你是认真的;因为我也许会做出疯狂的事,比如——相信你。
  • 有时候,日夜思念。可是当思念的人出现在眼前,你却安之若素。
  • 别因为知道我会等你,就把我晾在那儿等。
  • 纵然有百万个理由离开你,我也会寻找一个理由为你留下。
  • 我曾路过你的心,不是我不想停留,而是你不肯收留。
  • 如果没有你,明天不值得期待,昨天不值得回忆。
  • 如果我说我想一个人静一静,其实我比任何时候都需要你。
  • 当我保留了你的短信,在没有人的时候悄悄回味,我就知道我已经爱上你了。
  • 有时,我只是想能有个人,紧紧抱着我不放,直到我的心情真的好起来。
  • 我所有的付出,竟然从未打动过你。
  • 有时候不是不信任你,只是因为我比别人更在乎,更怕失去你。
  • 你忍心让我孤独,看我为你受苦的原因,不是忙,不是疏忽,不是不懂,不是考验,不是暂时遗忘,不是性情孤僻… 你只是不爱我。
  • 无论我此时是如何的彷徨迷茫,最终,我都要过上自己想要的生活。
  • 幸福其实真的很简单:有人爱;有事做;有所期待。
  • 我爱你,不是因为你是一个怎样的人,而是因为我喜欢与你在一起时的感觉。
  • 我不能给你全世界,但是,我的世界,全部给你。
  • 人的一生,都有一些说不出的秘密,挽不回的遗憾,触不到的梦想,忘不了的爱。
  • 假如你爱上了两个人,选择第二个。因为如果你真爱第一个,就不会去爱其他人。
  • 真的好想跟你讲话,但又很怕你嫌我烦。
  • 你是我晚上睡觉前最想聊天的人,我爱这种感觉。
  • 我们总在最不懂爱情的年代,遇见最美好的爱情。
  • 你会不断的遇见一些人,也会不停的和一些人说再见,从陌生到熟悉,从熟悉再回陌生,从臭味相投到分道扬镳,从相见恨晚到不如不见
  • 总有那么一个地方,一个人,让你心动,留恋不已。总有那么一个人,一句对不起,让你心痛,刻骨铭心…
  • 有一次,你说爱我。那一瞬间,我以为是永远。
  • 世界上最动听的情话,不是“我爱你”,不是“在一起”,是在我最脆弱的时候,你说:“有我在!”
  • 世界上最残忍的事,不是没遇到爱的人,而是遇到却最终错过;世界上最伤心的事,不是你爱的人不爱你,而是他爱过你后,最后却不爱你。
  • 其实,我一直都在你身后,就差你一个回头。
  • 曾经我是一个任性的孩子,任性的以为你只属于我,我只属于你。谢谢你告诉我,这个世界上谁都不是谁的,我们终究只会,属于我们自己。
  • 有时候,最好的安慰,就是无言的陪伴。
  • 思念一个人,不必天天见,不必互相拥有或相互毁灭,不是朝思暮想,而是一天总想起他几次。听不到他的声音时,会担心他;一个人在外地时,会想念和他一起的时光。
  • 一个人最幸福的时刻,就是找对了人,他纵容你的习惯,并爱着你的一切!
  • 这么多年,这么多人经过我的生活,可是为什么偏偏是你,看起来好像最应该是过客的你,在我心中占据了这么重的地位。
  • 有没有试过回过头去看你跟一个人的聊天记录,从一开始到现在。看着看着就笑了,笑着笑着就哭了。一个人,从陌生走近你,然后再陌生。
  • 我怀念的不是哪个人,而是我那回不去的曾经,突然很想跟自己说声对不起,对不起再也找不回原来的自己了。
  • 你爱我,我会陪你;你不爱我,我给你自由。这就是傻傻的我,那个在乎你的我。
  • 希望你知道我的全部缺点后,依然那么爱我,你能做到吗?
  • 我所做的一切,我努力改变自己,都是为了你。
  • 那个让你流泪的,是你最爱的人;那个懂你眼泪的,是最爱你的人。那个为你擦干眼泪的,才是最后和你相守的人。
  • 其实一个人的时候真的很自由,无拘无束,随心所欲。只是一个人久了,都不知道自己到底要的是什么了,不是没有人追,也不是不想爱。只是不习惯去过两个人的生活,或许还是因为没有遇到那个可以让我心动的人——也许,
  • 我的固执,注定了我要单身很久很久。
  • 我不过就是爱上了你,所以比你卑微,比你渺小,被你轻视,被你瞧不起,被你不珍惜。
  • 我的世界,你不在乎;你的世界,我被驱逐… 我真的喜欢你,闭上眼,以为我能忘记,但流下的眼泪,却没有骗到自己。
  • 你是我猜不到的不知所措,我是你想不到的无关痛痒。因为你,我认真过,改变过,悲伤过… 我不想再为过去而挣扎,我不想再为思念而牵挂,我不想再卑微自己了。你若不惜,我亦不爱。
  • 主动久了会很累,在乎久了会崩溃!
  • 爱上某个人,不是因为他给了你需要的东西,而是因为他给了你从未有过的感觉。
  • 有没有这么一个人,你无数次说着要放弃,但终究还是舍不得。
  • 遇见你,是我一生最美丽的意外。我不知道该说什么,我只是突然在这一刻很想你。
  • 最糟糕的感觉,莫过于不知道应该等待还是放弃。
  • 其实全世界最幸福的童话,不过是,与你一起度过柴米油盐的岁月。
  • 我希望找到一个,担心失去我的人。
  • 如果有一天,你走进我的心里,你会哭,因为里面全是你。如果有一天,我走进你心里,我也会哭,因为那里沒有我。
  • 我不需要那个人有多完美,我只需要那个人能让我感觉到,我就是唯一。
  • 在所有听过的谎言中,我最喜欢的是那句——我爱你。
  • 世界上最令人激动的一件事情是,你原本以为没有机会靠近的人,竟然爱上了你。
  • 我并不失落,我也没有受伤,没有生气,我只是有点累了,我厌倦了付出太多,回报太少。
  • 不必为了谁而改变,真正爱你的人会一直爱你,无论怎样的你。
  • 多年后你会不会记得,有一个女孩很努力的珍惜过你。
  • 有时候,我只是需要一个可以说话的人。
  • 与其找错误的人相伴,不如选择单身。
  • 我的世界不允许你的消失,不管结局是否完美。
  • 我知道何时止步,何时放手,何时前行。但是,我“知道”不代表我“能够”。
  • 我不明白为什么命运要让两个不可能在一起的人相遇。
  • 每一次想你,我都得提醒自己,如果你想和我聊天的话,你早就开口了。
  • 你不知道某些时刻,我有多么难过。你不知道,没有回应的等待,真的让人很累。你不知道,我是鼓起了多大的勇气,才敢念念不忘。又或者,你不是不知道,只是假装不知道。你那么自私。我那么傻。
  • 有时候,虽然能想明白,但心里就是接受不了。
  • 不要把我的关心当成理所当然。不管我有多爱你,最终也会有疲惫的一天。
  • 最难受的思念,不是对方不知道你的思念,而是他知道却无所谓有些人,无论你怎么对他好,他也不会留意,因为他的生命里,你显得是多么的微不足道。
  • 你永远也不晓得自己有多喜欢一个人,除非你看见他和别的人在一起。
  • 世界真的很小,好像一转身,就不知道会遇见谁。世界真的很大,好像一转身,就不知道谁会消失。
  • 从某天起,好像跟你没那么好了,见面少了,电话也少了;孤单的时候,忍住没找你。有些话不知道从何说起,不如不说;有些秘密只能藏在心底,独自承担。不想对你说谎,更害怕你痛心的责备,于是只好假装忘了你。其实,你一直在我心里。
  • 我讨厌你很长一段时间都忽略我,然后又突然开始和我说话,好像什么事情也没有发生过一样。
  • 感谢你赠我一场空欢喜,我们有过的美好回忆,让泪水染得模糊不清了。偶尔想起,记忆犹新,就像当初,我爱你,没有什么目的,只是爱你。
  • 当我想你的时候,你会不会也刚好正在想我。

Surprise visit from Bear again

Right… just when I thought I’m going for that walk during lunch, Bear came down with Pine’s cakes again.

Well he’s also making the trip down to collect something which I had helped him ordered online.  The initial plan was that I will bring it to him tonight after his gym, but he didn’t want me to travel all the way there after work, so he rushed down from his site office instead – and bought cakes along with him too.

Yup, that’s how sweet he is… something that I’ve always forgotten when I’m upset about other little things.

He chose to lunch with me when he saw I wasn’t exactly in a good mood/shape, when he was actually supposed to be rushing back.  While I felt a bit bad about it, I’m glad that he did – it’s really nice to be lunching with someone you love in the middle of a work day.

Eating the old school rainbow cream cake now… Having that 吃在嘴里,甜在心里 feeling right now… =)

I guess I’ll be postponing my walk to tonight then…

What is happiness?

When you aren’t happy with the first person, you could say it’s because the two of you aren’t compatible.  Or maybe he was really treating you like dirt, not caring about you.

When you aren’t happy with the second person, you could say it’s because he was trying too hard.  He doesn’t make you comfortable with him enough to be happy.

When you aren’t happy with the third person… maybe you have to start looking inwards at yourself.  Are you actually the one who’s expecting too much?  Are you actually the real reason why you aren’t happy?

Why do we always expect somebody to meet our expectations?  Why do we get angry over other people who can’t live up to our expectations or behave in the way we didn’t expect them to be? Why can’t we just let go, live and let live?

Maybe I should just stick to friendships. At least I don’t really expect anything out of friendships.  No expectations means no disappointments, no unreasonable jealousy, no restrictions imposed on the other party — no unhappiness – for both parties.

There’s only loneliness, but that’s something I’m used to anyway.

 

Sigh, maybe I should go for a long walk along the esplanade later during lunch.  Maybe it’ll help to clear my mind and make me see things better…

Tired, but happy

Woke up earlier than weekdays today, at 5.40am, and rushed out of my house by 6.15am.  Today is Bear’s cousin’s Passing Out Parade, and he had made a promise to his cousin that he will be there to witness his POP.  And he wanted to intro me to his cousin, so yeah I was there too.  Met his cousin, his uncle and his aunt.  Had a nice breakfast with them, before we parted ways.

Then it’s just having a cup of coffee at Starbucks, before walking all the way from Suntec to Orchard to search for my loose peppermint tea leaves.  Just holding each other’s hands, chat about nothing and everything, and despite both of us being really tired without having enough sleep, I think we were both just happy to be in each other’s company.  Somehow we managed to linger and spend the time together all the way till dinner (even though we really hadn’t plan anything to do), so we just went for dinner and then home.

I’m happy.  Not those deliriously happy kind of happy, but just.. happy. Contented.  He has showed me where he lived exactly, let me into his house/room to take a look despite his granny not really being happy about him bringing friends home, intro-ed me to his granny, intro-ed me to his closest cousin, letting his uncle and aunt met me… He holds my hand in public and is not afraid to show his affection for me in public…  He doesn’t need to have a reason to come out and meet me… He doesn’t mind that I don’t have a plan where to go, what to do when we meet… He makes me feel secure physically AND emotionally.

I just.. I don’t have words to describe him.  Granted, he isn’t perfect.  But neither am I. But he just somehow fills a void in me, addresses all my concerns, fixes my insecurities…

He gave me so much, all intangible stuff, yet I have no idea what I can give him. =(  I can only cherish the times we are together…

简单。人生。爱。

每个人都有选择。

你可以选择你要如何过你的人生。你可以选择你要怎样的爱情。你可以选择你要以什么心态来面对每一天。

每一样都是一个选择。

我选择了简单人生,简单爱。

简单,看似容易,但要真正的简单,其实很难。

简单人生。我不需要荣华富贵。我不需要名牌包包,不需要豪宅,不需要私家车。我不需要十千元的月薪。只要我能吃饱,住好,穿好,不用为明天的开销而愁,那就够了。我不喜欢喧闹,不喜欢与他人争论是与非。我只要简简单单的过我自己的生活,这样就好了。

真的。

简单爱。这是我想要的,可是却是我不知道我能不能做到的。

我不需要轰轰烈烈的爱情。真的,我不需要。我只要有一个人呵护我,包容我,照顾我,一生陪着我,分享苦与乐。我不需要每天打情骂俏,不需要每天听到一句“我爱你”,可是我需要每天沟通。我可以不用每天见到那个人,但我需要每天跟他聊天。

我找到了一个我以为是最适合我的人。他虽然抽烟喝酒,但他不需要性爱,他脚踏实地,忠厚老实。他说他愿意一辈子陪伴我,不会要求什么。

他,也追求着简单人生,简单爱。

我们,似乎拥有类似的思想与目标。但其实,打从心深处说,也许- 或许- 我们其实没那么相像。

我要的爱情,你可能不能给。曾经爱我的人,都会觉得疲累。我这个人,不好爱吧?对我来说的简单爱,对其他人来说是一种负担。也许你也开始慢慢了解这负担是什么意思了吧。

你要的爱情,我也不知道我能不能做到。你不要婚姻,不要困扰,不要浮躁,不要吵闹。我努力说服自己,婚姻不重要。当朋友问起我时,我很努力地为你辩护,替你解释为什么你不想要婚姻。在辩解的当儿,我也说我不介意。

有时,当你重复撒着一个谎,你会发现,你已经不知道那是不是还是个谎,还是已经是真实的了?

我需要婚姻吗?为了留住你在我身边,我说我不需要。但我真的不需要吗?我不知道。我真的不知道。

我明白你为什么不想要。我理解的。我也很努力地在说服我自己,告诉自己婚姻真的不重要。最重要的是两个人可以互相信任,互相扶持,真心的爱着彼此。

我在努力。我很努力了。

你不喜欢我的脾气,我告诉我自己,如果想要把你留在身边,我就得改。我也很努力的尝试着改。但我很怕,还是很怕,如果我改不了呢?

这一刹那,我忽然间觉悟了。

爱一个人,是接纳他/她的全部,无论是好,还是坏。你不会想要去改变他/她,更不会希望对方会为了你而改。

如果在爱情里连做自己都不可以,那算是什么样的爱情。。。?

我矛盾。我该不该做回我自己,但却会失去你?还是我该改变我自己来留住你?

 

 

我想要的简单爱 –

我以为我们之间存在的简单爱 –

忽然间变得 –

很不简单。

 

 

So. What happened?

I honestly doubt there are a lot of people who really reads this blog. Apart from a handful whom I roughly know who they are.  No one else whom I don’t know, I believe.  After all this blog is “discouraged” from appearing in search engine’s results, and I don’t publish the URL anywhere.

Nevertheless I know who are those few who would read, and if you were concerned about my previous posts, I apologised for the overly “dramatic” posts.

So, what really happened?

In summary, I was upset over a tiny trivial issue on the bus with Bear while on the way to PasarBella.  It’s really just a very small issue.  But I kicked up a big fuss (yeah those who know me really well – you could probably picture it happening), and Bear, in order to stop himself from screaming at me in public, he left the bus in anger.

So… yup.  We both have horribly volatile temper.  Mine has a lot more smaller “eruptions” (all these small ones actually mean there won’t be a large one for a long time), whereas his is a big eruption since he was able to managed and control his smaller ones.  But if and when both of us explode at the same time, I think it’s gonna be like World War 3…

So… let’s not go into why and what he did this, I did that. At the end of the day, I was contemplating… maybe we weren’t suitable for each other after all?  Maybe he realised that I’m not exactly who he thought I am?  Maybe he’ll be dumping me the next time we meet?  And how will I react if he really does?  Will I cry and beg him to take me back?  Will I take it as it is coz I deserve it anyway? And the long drawn out Whatsapp conversations between us that night really didn’t help anything but to more or less confirmed that he didn’t want me anymore.  (Or well, it felt that way with the state of mind I was in that night anyway.)

So… We decided to sit down for a talk about it.  He wanted next week, and I really couldn’t just sit on this and wait for one whole week just to get a “closure”.  So I simply just went down to his area and get it done and over with. While on the cab, I kept thinking, what should I say to him when I see him? What can I say if he wants out (of the r/s)?  I kept trying to prepare myself mentally for the possible scenarios but I guess my mind’s just in a jumbled mess.

So… when he finally came down and sat opposite me at Coffeebean (why doesn’t that place have Starbucks, really?), I looked at him, and you know, all that “mental preparation” to “accept whatever he’s going to say” be damned.  At that very moment, I know I don’t want this person to leave. I really don’t know what I can do or say to make him stay, but I know I don’t want him to leave.  And then… we talked.  Talked about the issues, MY issues, talked about what happened, and basically he just wanted me to know that he didn’t want to leave me on the bus, but he had to, otherwise it would be him yelling at me in public and he didn’t want that to happen.  (Yeah I was basically crying while talking – it’s been a while since I last cried in public.  Wasted like two packets of tissues.  =_=)

What can I say?  At the end of the day, this thing started because of me being a bitch.  So honestly, can I blame him? It was me who provoked him to this extent.  How can I still play victim and kept telling myself that I feel hurt, yada yada, when I was the one hurting him in the first place?

I was just overwhelmingly relieved, when he reached over the table and held my hands, and told me that break up was never really on his mind, and he’s definitely still going to HK together with me as planned.  So relieved, that the tears dropped again.  (Goddamn the hormones, seriously.)

And then we talked abit more… and I realised that, really, if I want this person to stay in my life, I really really do need to control my temper.  Not just saying it, but really attempt to do it.  Stop biting on certain issues and refusing to let go.  Stop being anal about little things or throw a hissy fit for not having things done my way.  Stop being a bitch, in summary.

I know, everyone says you shouldn’t try to change yourself for the other person.  But, what’s the harm of it if it means to change for the better?

There are a few things which I’m still afraid of.

– What if I still can’t control my temper that well?  If I could so easily change, I would have change it 10 years back.  I know it takes time, but do I have the time…?

– What if I actually manage to control it, but does it mean I’ll just be swallowing all these small eruptions, keep them bottled up until one day everything explodes?  Like how it was the past few times…? If and when that happens, it means that that’ll definitely be the end of everything…

I’ve got a lot of bad experiences when it comes to these things… nothing good seems to come out from my temper, no matter its me bristling at some issues or keeping quiet and exploding in the end.  So what does that leave me now?  Nowhere…

I can’t really see what else I can do, except to minimise the hurt that I’m dealing to Bear when I blew up at him at every single small thing, that might or might not have anything to do with him, even.

 

Well, tl;dr: I was just being a bitch and subconsciously trying to play victim in my own blog, I guess.  I need to grow up.  And my r/s is still intact (for now), provided I stop throwing such childish stunts from now on.  (Not his veiled threats, but a situation which I acknowledge on my own.)

 

That’s it.  And I’m terribly sleepy, thanks to that cup of chamomile tea after lunch…. I need my caffeine fix.  Now.

 

Control, dammit!

I need to learn how to control my temper better.

Like, seriously.

Stop nitpicking on small things. Stop biting on certain issues and learn how to let go.

Gosh, maybe I need to go for anger management lessons. =___=

Ugh.

Need to hit the bed… the sedatives are making my groggyyyyyy…

Perfection.

I am not perfect. I can try my damnest to be, but I will never be.

If you expected me to be perfect, maybe you shouldn’t have accepted me in the first place.

If you are expecting me to be perfect, then I supposed I am not the one for you.

It’s actually as simple as that.

Why did I still struggle to hang on when I can never be that perfect person for you?

Instead of asking you to let go, maybe I should work on my part on letting go first.

 

31st December 2014

Last day of the year!

Looking back this year, I realised I haven’t really accomplished anything.  Then again, every year’s the same.  =x

The highlights:

  • I’ve found my life partner.  Just hope that I won’t do anything to drive him away.
  • The Taiwan trip in June.  Didn’t get to really explore Taipei the way I wanted, but I’m sure there’s always a chance to go again.  =)
  • A roadtrip to Malacca early this year.  I’ve never done a road trip before, but unfortunately this is the first and the last one.  Big thanks to xdd for being the “driver”.  Otherwise, even if I have the money, there won’t be anyone driving me there lol.  It was definitely a fun and unique experience.
  • Managed to survive another year in this company, doing this job.
  • Managed to survive another year without dying. Like, literally.

The downs:

  • Hurt the person who loves me the most.  I’m sorry…
  • Being sick almost every month.
  • Currently suffering from IBS (I guess it’s turning chronic), thanks to one of the antibiotics courses which I’d taken while I was sick.
  • Had bilateral cysts, which thankfully went away after a course of hormonal pills.  Got a feeling they are back though.  Need to drop by the gynae soon…
  • Fell hard on my butt twice.  The second time was really bad and I got a feeling I’ve hurt my tailbone.  Gonna ask Dr Robin if I should go get my spine x-rayed.
  • Didn’t get to go anywhere overseas in the second half of 2014.  I was all drained and almost dying from all the routine stuff at work…
  • The spots on my cornea just keep reappearing. I’ve been on Cyclosporin for almost the entire year of 2014… when can I stop putting stuff into my eye…?

Now I’m just hoping that I’ll be less sickly, that I can find some sense of satisfaction in my job, that my cornea would stop fighting the dead virus and live harmoniously with it.

I’m really tired with year 2014.  I really do hope year 2015 will be better, but for some reason I’m not that optimistic about it.  LOL.  We’ll see, eh?  We’ll see.

Meanwhile, have a awesome day on this last day of 2014.  Spend the time with the one you love, hold their hands when counting down to the new year, for there’s a myth that says couples who countdown together, stay together (for that year anyway).  For singles, spend the time with your family, and be glad that everyone made it through this year.

I’m glad I made it through this year too.

Happy new year, my friends.  May 2015 be an awesome year for everyone.  =)

 

Merry Christmas! (Sorry for being late!)

Merry Christmas to all!  =)

Sorry for being late, but hope that everyone had a great day with family and loved ones!

I spent mine with my awesome Bear, of course.  Who else?!  =P

23rd December 2014

On the eve of Christmas eve (23rd, that is), my poor Bear still had to work in the morning because of that big-scale project he was involved in.  So I just brought the Christmas presents to my niece and nephew in the morning, and then went to SNEC to collect my Cyclosporin bottles.  After that, I headed straight to Project Paleo because I really missed their Prawns & Squid lunch! Was there right when they started business, so I promptly ordered my lunch, and also reserved two of their hard-to-get desserts.  Bear had wanted to try their desserts forever, but we just weren’t lucky enough to try them despite dropping by for a couple of times.  This time I made sure we will get to eat it!  =P


My prawn & squid lunch with broccoli and carrots, and sauteed mushrooms!

Then Bear finally reached and he actually brought a container full of homemade tangyuan for me, simply because I had mentioned to him the day before that it’s been a long while since I ate homemade tangyuan.  He asked his granny to make a little more so that he can bring for me to eat.  D:  I feel so pai seh!  But the homemade tangyuans were good!  Sweet, of course, due to the gula melaka syrup thingy that the tangyuan were soaked in, but it’s really chewy.  One bite and you will know it’s homemade stuff, not commercialised food.  Thanks, dear.  =)

And after he had his lunch, I collected the dessert – Banana avocado mousse!  The flavours were very distinct the moment you had a mouthful of the dessert.  You can really taste the banana AND the avocado at the same time.  Awesome!

After lunch, we adjourned to a new coffee place which I accidentally read about the night before.  It’s this “The New Black”, a new coffee place that’s at Upper Circular Road.  They claimed to have sourced the best beans from around Asia, so I thought why not give it a try.  Well, their coffee is, er, unique, but not something that we’ll go back and try again.  Nope.  Their seating area is also just blocks of hard seats.  No table, no proper chairs nor sofa. Interesting takeaway cups, though!


The takeaway cups from The New Black.  The red one is a cold cup (which really can be reused), and the blue one is for hot beverages (which is just paper cup).

After that, we went for dinner (while arguing about a certain sensitive topic which resulted in me sulking throughout the entire dinner) at Ichiban Boshi.  I wasn’t exactly in the mood to snap pics, so no pics from there.

Finally after much cajoling from the patient Bear, I relented and we made our way to Gardens By The Bay for the Christmas decoration in their Flower Dome.  Awesome lightings, and cute mini snowmen… a pity about the fake snow though.  =x  (Sorry, ever since I’ve experienced a real white Christmas, I’m feeling jaded about fake snow and the non-existent Christmas feel in Asia countries.)


There’s more, but I’m lazy to post up all of them.  I have them in my Flickr albums, so drop me a message if you wanna see.  These photos are meant to be part of the memories, and I don’t really have the intention to share ALL of them with everyone who chanced upon this blog.  =P

After a somewhat disappointing trip to GBTB, we called it a day, because there’s staycation the next day!

24th December 2014

Yay! Finally the day is here!  I requested for an early check-in at the hotel as we already had plans to visit Universal Studios Singapore, and it’s best that we are at USS early.  And the hotel allowed for the check-in, and they even upgraded me to the Premium Floor because they don’t have available rooms in the Standard floors for my early check-in.  So yay, I’ve got the premium floor AND a bay view to boot! Thanks, Novotel~!  =D


Awesome view, yes?  :D

After reaching Sentosa, we made our way first to The Slappy Cakes!  Make your own pancakes, rawr~!  The toppings I chose were all under Sweet, while Bear chose those under Savoury.  I had blueberries, banana and lavender honey, while Bear had honey ham, crispy bacon and cheddar cheese.  And as for the batter, I chose Ginger Bread (it’s Christmas, after all!), and Bear chose the traditional buttermilk.

And then we started making our own pancakes!



Muahahaha, my pancake saying hello and Merry Christmas to you!

My Bear’s pancake that has fillings such as honey ham, crispy bacon and cheddar cheese all mixed in Tabasco sauce. =_=;

Here’s a paw pancake by my Bear! =D

LOL enough of the photo spam. But yeah we had great fun! Bear was definitely much more creative in the cooking department than me… After having a pancake(s) lunch, we stepped into USS where, for the first time, I actually queued for rides.  Yup… Bear somehow managed to convince me to take some of the rides, when I usually would have just rather skip in theme parks.  Well, queueing ain’t that bad, when you have someone with you joking along the way, chit chatting about stuff, except for that killer queue at the Transformers ride.  A whopping 2.5 hours queue!  Just for a 5min ride…. =_=;  My legs were aching real bad but the ride is, I would say, worth the queue.  Haha, yes I’ve said it there.  It’s worth that 2.5 hrs of queuing.

Another attraction that we went for is “Lights, Camera, Action” hosted by Steven Spielberg, where we witnessed how the set “came to life” as a “category 5 hurricane rips through a shed/warehouse in New York City”.  And yes we are all in that “warehouse”.  We see fire burning across the water right in front of our eyes, windows shattering and being blown away by the gusts, witnessed explosions, ceiling beams dropping down into the “flooded warehouse” on the set, and lastly a tanker ramming into the “warehouse”.  All in all – wow.  :D

Before we could get our dinner though, it started raining BIG in the evening.  Like seriously, pouring cats and dogs.  Our shoes are totally soaking wet, and I was glad I wore shorts that day.  We had our dinner and decided to walk out of Sentosa and back to Vivocity where we bought some beer before heading back to the hotel.  While at Liang court, we also bought some cakes and got an omu rice with hamburger steak for takeaway.  My bear’s still hungry.  =P

So yup, we went back to the hotel pretty early, ate the rice, showered, and just lounged around.  Bear’s watching some movies on TV while I checked my work emails on my mobile (gave up after a while though).  Then Bear went down to buy us some McNuggets to munch on while waiting for Christmas Day to come.


Christmas presents~! And food! And beer!

It’s really awesome to be able to spend some quiet time with the person you love.  And not to mention I get to countdown to Christmas with him privately (kind of).  Even if we weren’t doing anything and just lounging around, watching movies/programmes…. Although he kinda snores quite a bit, I could still sleep through his snores (I think). =x But poor him prefers to have his room uber cold, while I couldn’t take it if the room is TOO cold.  So he has to bear with the warm temperature just because of me… >_<  Sorry dear…

Aaaaand it’s back to work today.  Now there’s nothing really to look forward to, except on weekends when I can see him again.  The nearest trip with him is in March.  *sigh* That’s like so far away!  *pouts*
