    WU LU Gourd

    I love Wulu. I am quiet superstitious.
    Wulu, a.k.a wulou in Cantonese, which I believe is a symbol of the Buddha. This symbol is thought to bring Financial Help, Compassion and Joy to those it surrounds. Wulu attracts good 'qi' and against the bad ones.

    I also have a mini Wulu as my lucky charm. Thinking of getting a WULU shape pendant. :P

    Working from home ...

    Yes. I am still in KL. Working from home. Feeling very happy, can work from home, can see my "boy boy" daily, can eat my mom's cooking, and going for Bak Kut Teh tonight!

    Mom also feeling very happy that I am staying for few more days. She prepares a lot of food for me, double boiled soup for me, keep on feeding me food. Thanks ma!

    I got a feeling that, I might get a chance to stay in KL till the end of this week. It sound like a good news. But, my six sense tells me that I might not get a chance to come back next month, not even every fortnight needless to say weekly. Christmas is around the corner, getting the bus or train ticket is another problem for me.

    Although I am working from KL, never get any chance to go shopping. Start work at 9.00am, finish around 9.oopm too. Tonight got to go to Puduraya, need to get my CNY bus ticket before it is sold out. Got to know from Chloe that, the bus ticket price is double for Chinese new year!!! Aikss...

    East Coast Park - SG

    Chloe, Iris and I went to East Coast Park few weeks ago. It was raining season. We were so lucky that it was not raining when we visited the place.
    East Coast Park is the largest park in Singapore. It is build on a reclaimed land with 'imported' sand, and coconut trees. It has a cycling track runs along the perimeter of the park, which measures at least 20 km long. Bicycles rental rate - $5 for two hours, and get a bottle of mirenal water for free.
    We cycled for two hours, it was so tiring. But, the bicycle that I got that day was a slighty 'better' one compare to the one I got in Pulau Ubin.
    The park is a popular place for families and friends to relax and enjoy themselves.

    Nice view huh?

    Bye Bye - The Koi

    Whenever I spend my weekend (Sunday) in Singapore, I normally go to my boss's house. He is a really nice guy, and he cooks very well. But, don't expect 'authentic' Chinese food from him, because he can only cook Indian Chinese food.
    Why? What is Indian Chinese Food?
    The story is like this. I was having a very bad cough few weeks ago. He cooked "look mei" soup for me. "Look mei" soup can be either salty and sweet right? But, he cooked the "look mei" soup with pork, curry leave, and rock sugar... So, it was like sweet and salty "look mei" soup with curry leaves... lol

    Went to his house again last Sunday. Found out that the water of the fish pond was very dirty, so I suggested him to clean the fish pond. So, he turned on the drain pump and we went to the kitchen and prepare our dinner. We forgot about the draining thing! When we realized, the pond has only 10% water left. He quickly turn on the tap to refill the water. But the big Koi already became very 'lazy', it was moving very slowly. And it died yesterday morning!

    Bye Bye the Koi fish...

    Hmm, maybe will ask my boss to buy fish spa fishes, since he has a pond. Then I can come for often for fish spa. lol

    Dim Sum @ Sri Petaling

    Tried Sri Petaling's Dim Sum for the very first time with my family members during my Raya holiday few weeks ago. The 'Gai wo pao' is their signature. When we reached Sri Petaling, we saw a few Dim Sum shops with the 'Gai Wo Pao' banner. All of them seem like claiming themselves as the 'Original' one. We are not sure whether we ate in the 'authentic' shop or not, lol.

    Wong Kam Pao (Golden pao)

    Golden Pao is stuffed with BBQ pork ...

    gai wo pao

    The 'gai wo pao' is actually pao with 'loh mai gai' stuffing

    My first KL-SG train experience...

    I took train from KL to SG last Sunday for the very first time after 2 years of traveling by weekly basis. The train journey is 2x more than bus journey, but I dont mind because I can sleep during the journey. I bought the berth type. I did not sleep well because the train stopped almost in every state, and also I heard people snoring! But I believe I will get use to it soon, I think I will continue travel by train because it saves my time. I can sleep in the train, by the time I wake up I am already in Singapore and can head to the office straight away. Although it is very tiring!

    Waiting for departure in KL Sentral

    On the way to my coach...

    Jeng Jeng! me and my PINK toes @ the berth...

    I was at the upper deck of the berth. This is how it looks in the train.

    Raining season...

    Raining again...
    It rains everyday in Singapore this few days.
    It rains in the morning, it rains at night too.


    Guess what? Today I wore slippers and short pants to work. My jeans and sports shoes got wet on Monday. Monday was a very tiring day for me. I took train from KL on Sunday night, and reached Singapore at 8.15am on Monday, it was a 11 hours journey. Did not sleep well in the train and it was raining when I reached Singapore! I had no choice but to head to the office although it was raining.

    Feel like having a bowl of hot soup, or a cup of hot tea which will make me feel warmer.
    Ma, I miss you, and your cooking. I want to go home! But I am going back to KL next weekend only.

    8 more days to go......

    My New Office ...

    Joined this new company a month ago. Hmm, not too far from my house. 15 minutes bus ride. But, in order to get a straight bus from my house, I need to walk 15 minutes to the bus stop. Never mind, in my dictionary, walk more == slimmer. lol

    OK, after the 15 minutes walking time, and the 15 minutes riding time. It is time for a 78steps climbing time... I need to climb this stairs every morning!!!

    My office building...

    Another view... My colleagues saw snake near the grass. I saw chamillion this morning! Scary!

    In my office

    Clinique ...

    Clinique 3-steps skin care

    Got this Clinique 3- Steps skin care from my mom.
    Thanks ma!

    My skin is in a horrible condition now since I have just changed a new working environment. Pimples started popping out near my jaw line, this happen when i am stressful. Pimples are OK, but i hate the dark spots that leave behind. Sometimes they take months to be faded away! I am a big fan of Clinique, with the clarifying lotion, my dark spots will be faded faster. I have tried tons of other facial products, only this moisturizing gel that suit my super oily skin. I also love their cleanser, with only a small amount, my skin feel 'fresh' after using it.
    Need to be 'hardworking' now since I am getting older. Need to really take care of my skin before it becomes worst! I am a lazy gal, with Clinique 3-steps, all i need is 3 minutes in the morning, and another 3 minutes in the evening.

    'There are no ugly women, only lazy ones'......

    Haw Par Villa

    Visited Haw Par Villa with Chloe. Chloe is my 'jalan-jalan' mate in Singapore. Whenever I spend my weekend here in Singapore, for sure I will go out with her.
    Visited Haw Par Villa in 1991, hmmm, 17 years ago. I remember there was a Dragon tunnel, there are boats where you can ride to visit the hell. But, there are all not there anymore. It was another hot and sunny day. Can't really open my eyes while taking photos.
    Haw Par Villa aka Tiger Balm Gardens. It has a colorful collection of statues and lots of tableaux centered around Chinese folklore, legends, history, and Confucian ideology. Nice place!

    Azhar's Birthday

    It was Azhar Birthday on 23th Oct. His wife Fina secretly arranged a birthday party for him. We have to 'pretend' like we forgot his birthday in the office and gave him a surprise in his house around 8pm.
    It was also my first time seeing Cupcake as Birthday Cake. The best joke was: One of them asked "where is the birthday cake?" after Azhar blow off the candle.

    Happy Belated Birthday, boss...

    Pies from Delifrance...

    Fruit pies.... Yummy....

    Food served that night...

    The Birthday Cupcake... My lips and tongue turned 'black' after eating the cup cake.
