In Soph's Week!

Monday, June 17, 2013

So here is the weekly summary for this week!

On Monday, I went to have lunch with Rod at an eatery near his workplace. After lunch, he went back to work (duh, if not?!) while I decided to stroll around Plaza Singapura and have some quality "me" time.

Quality "me" time equates to:
- Strolling leisurely around a huge shopping mall ON MY OWN
- Buying whatever I want because there is no one to say "No! You can't/shouldn't buy this!"
- Entering whichever store that I wanted to take a look at just because I can and that, I don't have to ask if my shopping buddy is interested in looking at the store too or he/she would mind if I take a look at what's inside the store BECAUSE I HAD NO SHOPPING BUDDY!

Ok, so that didn't turn out sounding quite the right way but you get what I mean! #benefitsofshoppingwithoutashoppingbuddy #whatalonghashtag

I walked around Plaza Sing for about an hour and a half before I decided to find somewhere to rest my feet. I guess I could have continued walking around the shopping mall, just that I was lugging a huge Daiso plastic bag around.

I chose to rest my feet at Fruit Paradise!


Koped this photo off google! Photo credits goes to whomever it may belong to!


I ordered my usual/favourite slice of fruit.. Mixed fruit tart.

I love how they managed to incorporate so many kinds of fruit into a single tart and the taste is a perfect blend! Especially the odd kick from that small slice of grapefruit, it makes the whole combi extraordinary! Love love love!



I love my fruit tart! Nom nom!

I ordered a set, which comprised of a slice of fruit tart and a premium blend coffee/tea of my choice.

I picked the Peach Nectar tea which was non-caffeine.


It had an alluring peach aroma, and the tea blend was just right. Not too strong that it'll make me nauseating, and not too light either such that I'll feel like I'm drinking plain water.


My nails for the week. #floraldoodles


The whole set.


Around 4.30pm, I was joined by my friends, Chuck-E & Vinlee. We waited together for Rod to knock-off work and had Astons for dinner (yes, again!!)

We had time to spare after dinner so we headed over to Playnation @ *Scape.

For the first time ever, I tried "Dance Central".




Rod looks gay here HAHA! *Oops!*

Usually my pick of games for Wii or Xbox would be "Raving rabbids", "Mario Kart", "Guitar Hero", "Band Hero", or any first-person shooter games like "Halo" (got introduced to this game by my male cousins) or "Call Of Duty" (got 'forced' by Rod to TRY this game because I was his only khaki to play with when we went to Playnation on our own during our previous trips).

FYI I don't suck at first-person shooting games, but I'm not brilliant at it either. It still takes me forever to aim at a particular target. My years of playing shooting games have failed me :(

In the same week, I also went to Adventure Cove Waterpark @ RWS.


I didn't manage to catch all the rides, but I got most of them.

Which rides did I love the most? I would say Riptide Rocket (according to the official website, it is SEA's first hydro-magnetic coaster!) because it was really cool and exhilarating! The float FLEW!!! Super awesome ride!

I also liked Whirlpool Washout, just because Rod and I came down the slide BACKWARDS. No, it aren't suppose to be like that but somehow it did.

Basically, our float got stuck. (refer to the pics below for further illustrations)


Our float overshot the point where we were suppose to turn in and make an exit down HEAD-FIRST, and then with the water current going on below the float, it dragged the float to go down the slide backwards.


My sister and her boyfriend were shocked when they saw us coming down backwards. Even the lifeguard who was in-charge of catching the floats at the end of slide was shocked too and chuckled at us!

It was an understatement to say that Rod and I were screaming our heads off when our float started going down backwards. Nonetheless, if you give me a chance to do it again, I will still go ahead with it! How many people would get such a chance to go down a water ride backwards huh? LOL

I had a photoshoot session with Shin as well in the week. It's for a project that both of us are working on! More details coming up... SOON!

Anyway, she is an amazing photographer.

In Soph's Week!

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

In the past, I would always upload and blog about the pictures that I have taken in the day once I reached home at night. Or at least I would upload it in the next 2-3 days. But ever since school started again for in 2012, the whole blogging thing went on a downward spiral for me.

So, as a means to re-participate in hobby that is meaningful to me, I started to bring my camera out daily and it helped! I am taking more pics already!! I am currently using a Panasonic LUMIX as my CANON IXUS is now spoilt after serving me diligently for 5 years. No worries CANON IXUS, I'm gonna get you fixed! *pinky promise*

This post is a little late. I should have gotten it done during the weekends but umm.. I was preoccupied with some other stuff (eg. lazing around, watching shows & etc)

ANYWAY, it's finally up now so that counts, right?

Adeline bought a pooh bear as a birthday present for her friend, and well.. anything that is adorable has to be camho-ed with, yes?


POOH: "YES!!!!"


Pooh (and its puppeteer, Adeline) started making its way around the class and first stop: MILLICENT


And I never thought I would ever see this side of Milly... (._.) LOL


Next stop: JESS


BAT LOL (Dora doesn't like pooh?)


POOH:"What you doing, Fran??"


Beryl's unglam moments while Pooh continues being adorbs.

And that rounds up Pooh's adventure around the class. However it does not imply that I was done taking photos yet!!!


'Dora' being as adorable as always!
(FYI Bat's nickname in class is "Dora" because she carries a huge blue bag just like Dora the Explorer and well.. she does resemble Dora to a certain extent! :P)


A pic with my homie (:


Two with Beryl!

Homie wore a pretty dress that day and so she deserves a photo! #justforkeepssake

Ate Macs with le Clique last week, and incidentally, homie and I came up with a new awesome way to eat fries! #gottasharethis


1. Throw the fries into a paper bag.
2. Add a full pack of Citrus Thai Shaker Fries powder.
3. Grab the neck of the paperbag, squeeze it tight and then shake like you're shaking the cha-cha musical instrument.


A set of maracas (ie. the cha-cha instrument)

4. When you think you've done enough shaking (estimate please!), open the bag and pick out a fry.
5. Oh, I forgot to say this earlier on: prepare beforehand a saucer filled with chilli sauce topped with a full pack of pepper and also, get a pack of curry sauce!
6. Dip one end of the fry into the chilli-pepper sauce combi, and dip the other end into the curry sauce
7. Pop the whole fry into your mouth and enjoy a series of flavours exploding in your mouth! It's damn shiok!

Cream of Mushroom soup.

Rod's double-up chicken (teriyaki sauce & hickory BBQ sauce), with house salad and baked beans as his side dishes

After dinner, we decided to go watch 'Epic'. A great movie to catch and definitely one that you should go watch ASAP if you haven't yet!






Some scenes of the movie:






And to end this series of pics of the movie scenes, here's a funny gif for ya:


I'll leave you to go find out what the joke is all about

So anyway, here is my favourite find of the week (other than the chilli-pepper-curry-citrus-thai (short form: CPCCT) fries!


Fruit by the FOOT

I guess what they meant by FOOT is that the candy is a foot-long.


What it looks like inside after I unwrap the green packaging


How the candy looks like.

The white thingy is actually some sort of special paper. It kinda feels like baking paper?

So that's all I have for you for last week! More photos coming up for this week! YAY! \o/
