My Name is Bond, James Bond

Look at the plate number! Wow! The owner of the car must really like James Bond; to be driving a Bond car with 007 plate number. Hehe.

Ayam Kampung Hassan

Last Saturday, we went to see a designer for my akad nikah dress at Bandar Tun Razak. The night before, when we were asking the family for directions to Bandar Tun Razak, Eddie's dad suggested that we stop by at Hassan's to try the ayam kampung and masakan kampung. So we did. :)

You can tell that Eddie liked the food there. Hehe.

Babush Cuddles

Jennifer bought us some souvenirs from Harbin. And because Harbin is so close to Russia, the souvenirs were Russian. :)

When I told Eddie about the Babushka dolls, he thought I said 'Babush Cuddles' and he was so confused. Hehe! :)

A New Toy!

Eddie bought us a new toy! So fun! :)

The Apartments Next to S31 Sukhumvit

This is the building next to the hotel I stayed at in Bangkok last week, S31 Sukhumvit. Each apartment has its own plunge pool. How cool is that? :)

But then again, I won't want to be paying close to 2 million for a luxury condo to have people from the next building gawking at me while I enjoy my pool. Haha!

Eddie and Shopping

Went shopping with Azmir and Maria yesterday. We bought some material for the men's baju melayu and also material for Maria's bridesmaid dress. Eddie was there too. This was how he felt about the shopping. *rofl*

Small Luxury Hotels of The World

I stayed at one of the Small Luxury Hotels in Bangkok last week, called S31 Sukhumvit. Since it is a new hotel, the office in Thailand got corporate rate benefits.

We each stayed at the Duplex Suite which was an experience to remember! The room was SO HUGE for one person! Downstairs was the hall and kitchen. Also a toilet. Upstairs was the bedroom and the shower.

The bed was also TOO HUGE for one person! It was definitely bigger than a king size bed. I don't know what size that is. Super king, perhaps?

In the end, I lugged my luggage upstairs and ended up 'living' just upstairs. Hehe.

Valentine's Day 2011

Was in Bangkok on Valentine's this year. The team went for dinner that night. Trond gave the ladies a heart-shaped balloon each, from the restaurant. :)

CNY 2011

I had a good long break during CNY this year. I took 2 days off work, so in total, I had 6 days off. Here are some photos taken over the long break.

We had dinner at Delicious;

 No cars at all on LDP!

 My handsome Eddie posing handsomely with his latte.

 My delicious grilled chicken caesar salad. Yummy!

My delicious red velvet cupcake.

We discovered a beautiful mosque when we went for a tahlil;

Eddie posing funnily in front of the mosque.

We were pretending to be 'tourists' in Turkey or something like that. Haha!

We had CNY dinner with the family;

 Handsome Eddie in red in honour of the celebration. He got a lot of angpows that night. Haha!

 Yummy yee sang waiting to be tossed!

A cousin of mine, Ling Huey, actually wished for no rain when tossing the yee sang. Hehe.

 Huge fish deco at the restaurant. I LOVE fish!

 Crab looking at me. I wonder what he's thinking.

Has anyone ever eaten this? Can somebody tell me how do you eat it and what kinda dishes?

All in all, it was a normal quiet CNY. I was rather surprised to receive quite a lot of angpows. Eddie was even MORE surprised as this was his first time having CNY dinner with my family. But I think it would be his first and his last. Next year, we'll have to start giving angpows. Huhu.

Today I made origami butterflies with Diya. I used pages torn out of Eddie's old Time magazine, Diya used coloured paper.

I'm thinking if I should fold hundreds of origami something for the wedding. I really like the idea of 1,000 flying cranes but I guess it's a very much used idea. I think butterflies would be very nice. Any thoughts? :)

You Are On The Same Frequency

I know this post is very very late in the new year, we are now entering the second month of the year. But as this is MY BLOG, what I say, goes. :) Plus it's not like I have any readers who are curious to know what my new year's resolutions are. Heh.

This year, I don't have any resolutions per se. But it is more like a list of things to do. This is it (however, this is a non-exhaustive list).
  • Plan the wedding
  • Learn how to use Adobe Illustrator
  • Update blogs
  • Be more patient
  • Be more positive
  • Be happier
  • Be healthier
  • Save more money (after the wedding)
  • Take more photos
  • Be more active - swim, cycle, run, etc
  • Take better care of myself - go for facials, manicures, pedicures, etc
Well, one month has passed and so far;
  • The wedding planning is underway
  • I have already started my AI tutorial lessons and I intend to complete one tutorial every 2 weeks
  • I am updating my blog starting with this post, and I have already started another blog - details to be provided later
  • I listen to Secret: The Power (audio book) whenever I need to recharge
  • I have scheduled for several monthly appointments at the facial place, nail salon, etc and bought myself products
So I'm off to a good start but need to make more effort to be more active and take more photos. Looking forward to a great year ahead!
