    Lonely Sunday

    I was in SG last weekend. Decided to stay here for one weekend after a long break in KL. Time to DETOX after eating so many fried food and oily food during CNY. Chloe was sick, so she was unable to accompany me on Sunday. But must thank her for willing to accompany me on Saturday although she was not feeling well.
    I woke up around 10 am. Had some biscuits and a cup of instant mushroom soup for breakfast. Then I went to the temple as usual (I go to temple whenever I spend my weekend in SG). After that went for lunch alone, food is tasteless when eating alone and that's why I ordered Tom Yam so that at least I can taste something spicy. And I was right! The tomyam soup there is super spicy, and they put "Fatt fong kam" (kaffir lime) in the soup. Yummy! Will definitely go back for their TomYam soup or fish soup!
    Then went to Bugis Junction, tried to hunt for Valentine's day present. But mission failed! Saw very nice Casio watches, and the price is reasonable too, did not buy because I know dear wants a Omega watch and not Casio, Cyma, or Seiko watch. Getting a Omega watch for him is like a mission impossible to me, since I am so stingy. Right? But hor, I don't mind getting a Casio watch as a gift.
    After that I went to Vivo. Started to hunt for his present again. Walked from 3pm to 8pm but did not buy anything! But at least I decided what to get for him - another pair of CROCS but different design this time (he requested it). I did not buy it in Vivo because to get it in Malaysia is cheaper, and as Chinese, I very 'pantang larang' wan, cannot buy shoes during CNY wan... why? Cos it sounds "hai" (Sigh...) in Cantonese, and it will bring you bad luck for that year.

    I need some info here, is there any CROCS shop near Lot 10 area? Kindly let me know if u ever seen one there.


    This is my dinner on Sunday. Bought it in Vivo mart.
    $4.90 for 8 sushi (Please don't convert, if convert sure "mm seh dak" buy wan)


    And that's the end of my lonely Sunday...

    Detox...tried this recipe but got sick afterwards (my body a lot of toxins...)-blend the green apple,bittergourd,celery and capsicum and drink!Taste awful...

    Eh, I thought there is a pantang not to give shoes to your other half as present. It is like sending him/her away from you.

    Cherish Tulips: After married, I will have plenty of alone time, cos my working hours and his working hours are different!

    Doreen: Good question. But, I got a way to overcome it. kekekeke
    When I give him that shoes, I will ask him to give me RM1. So, it is like he is buying the shoes from me at RM1. hahahha, I bought him at least 4 pairs of shoes d...

    I buy shoes for my Wifey often. She probably have shoes to go with all colours of her attire.

    She's happy, and I'm poor. =(
    Haha.

    Lonely days can be good sometimes, it let you have some individual space to slow down and rediscover yourself.

    Missing your other half in a lonely day helps to reinforce the fact that you should make full use of the time you spend with him. ^_^

    I eat alone sometimes, and I still enjoy my food! I guess I just love food too much! Haha! I guess it's nicer to have company when eating, but I am fine eating all alone.

    In fact, I sometimes love to do things alone. No need to worry about others, just do my own thing - so much freedom! But sometimes it's good to have company too, so I guess it's the balance that's important.

    Oh, I didn't know it's not good to buy shoe for CNY, but you know what? I used to dislike the number 4 because it sounds like 'die' in Cantonese. But now, I don't bother cos many times, the number 4 has given me good luck! : )
