I changed my blog song!
love this jazzy tune.. but i still prefer the latin version by Lisa Ono and am still searching for it. Darren like this very much too, and it may become our march in song. i need the faster version though
My vampire is ranked no. 7 among 20 odd friends! Not because I'm good at playing, it's because some of them didnt play at all lar..
Just look at my sister's vampire.. it's LUMBER 1.

Quite an eventful weekend till now. hee
Went MOS with Darren yesterday. Although not many of his friends went, it was still fun people watching cos there's just too many interesting people around. hee hee.
had a good workout dancing yesterday as there were no calls from mum anymore ha~
Woke up at around 9 plus this morning to meet the gals from SG brides. We bulk ordered some ampoules together and it's time for collection. So we met up for breakfast at Cafe Cartel and the breakfast was pretty good! It's a pity that the french toast was sold out... =_( but the ham and cheeze omelette was great too.
After a hearty breakfast, met up with Darren again for my dim sum!! *cannot imagine I gobbled so much food*
Never tried Royal China at Raffles so I brought Darren there. I must say that this dim sum is even better than Red Star at Chin Swee Road. But of course, Red star is so so much cheaper. Didnt' know Royal China existed till last week while searching for some restaurants for my boss, I came across a blog that had yummilicious pictures of dim sum that it literary stirred up my cravings for them.
This restaurant was first established in London and I think it came to Singapore around 2003. But I only got to know it now.. gosh.. anyway it's a place that i will be back for their scallop dumplings, shark fin dumplings and prawn and scallop cheung fun!
Before we ate, we took some pictures at raffles hotel as we never went up to the 3rd floor before hee. The place was really pretty.
Finally outside the restaurant!
you feel so "royal" just by looking at their signboard.
It's indeed Royal!
photo from website
Dim sum included~
even used the food mode of my cam to capture the dim sum..
just look at the oil...
our 1st dish was the chang fen.. yummiz.. you get the best all in a single plate. Prawn, scallop and char siew chang fens. droolzz..The skin is really smooth and tender~
Carrot Cake - very smooth and soft as well. Melts in your mouth!
Prawn and fruit Salad - Another delicious starter, the fruits were really fresh, even the strawberries were sweet!
Star of the day - sharkfin dumpling in chicken and ginseng soup. With alot of goodies like mushroom, scallop, crab meat and not forgetting sharkfin too. The soup was tasty and not so salty.. and most importantly, $8.80 nia! =p
another of my favourite. Scallop dumplings with fish roe!! you really cannot see such exquiste dim sum anywhere.. or.. maybe i suagu
Damage : $50
Hungry just by looking at these photos again.. another 3 weeks will be mummy's birthday, will bring her there to have a good meal, maybe with my sister as well so that we are order MORE food =)
And after lunch we went to Parkway to get my lingerie to wear on my wedding day. Heard from Cheryl about a shop in Parkway where she bought her corset to wear with her gown. Her designer (Bridal Veil) highly recommended that shop to all her clients. Indeed it was a fruitful trip! Didn't manage to get a corset as the lao ban niang said i dont need one, so she recommended some pushup for my gown.
She's really a good sales person and knows her stuff pretty well..she will analyse your body shape and recommend thier lingerie to you.
Ended up spending $170 there =__=
But their lingerie is really nice, some are actually imported from Japan..
Go to her if you are a BRIDE-TO-BE! =D

Went to Julia and tried gowns!
It was a fulfilling trip. Only spent 3 hours there and I decided the "evening gown" (yeah, my wedding is a Sunday luncheon, so the evening gown will be considered as the 2nd outfit).
Was in a dilemma as their evening gowns are pretty nice which was strange as I heard alot of comments saying that their Evening gowns are not nice.
Gowns I tried...didn't take much photos cause it wasnt really allowed
I lurve this light yellow cheongsam! It has pretty nice embroidery and a train.. very divine couture inspired. Darren liked it very much too!!
The gown on the left is very nice and sexy too.
The side of it is all TRANSPARENT till below my hips with tiny beads stringing across.
Dar was quite shocked. hahah so it's a NONO
Although I would really love to get that cheongsam but in the end, I decided on another one as Darren said that one was better and very unique. Didn't take a picture while wearing but there's a picture of it in the magazine.
Its train is black and i think it's really very classy and elegant cause seldom people wear a hint of black during weddings. But the gown itself isn't white, its a shade of pale pink. hee hee
Darren decide his suit too!.. He will have a 2nd outfit change too

My eyelash perm!
I lurve it.
This is my 1st time doing eyelash perm and I think I will be going back for more once it straightens out. Went to a small salon one of the podders recommended in Bugis Village and who says good things don't come cheap? it's pretty affordable and I'm satisfied with the outcome. My lashes did not turn frizzy, it's still soft after the perm.. maybe partly because I applied some eyecream on it before going for the perm.
and it's permanent! okay not really permanent but it's going to last me about 2 months I think.
38 bucks nia!

off-in-lieu on Monday so there's no work. Dar took a day's leave too and we will be going to Julia to try our AD gowns. hee hee
This month, i have been a good girl. I realised that i have not bought much stuff as we were too caught up with the HK dramas during the weekend. I was surprised that my credit card bills were almost.. KOSONG. Even called to customer service and double confirm that I do not have any outstanding balance. yeah!
hee hee So, to reward myself..I'm going to spend spend spend!
Tomorrow will be eyelash perming session
Monday I will visit Wen and Weng, an aesthetic clinic. Still thinking what treatment I should do.
hmmm...definitely something heavy on the pocket but good for the skin hiak hiak hiak
ENJOY your weekends!

okay.. short post.
Tired day at St James over the weekend.. My first time there and it was in the morning for the flea market!
our stall. Sis have alot of nice clothes!
particularly liked this..
mum went down to kaypoh too hee hee
last but not least me and my dear HUBBY!!
Didnt' managed to sell anything (Ha!) but donated alot of clothes to the salvation army. Sis sold alot of clothes cos her clothes were newer, trendier and alot more than mine! It's okay at least i donated a bagful of clothes to salvation army and accumulate some good karma.
(according to josephine's theory, we will grow old slower if we accumulate more good karma hee hee)
think maybe i didnt donate enough, i'm like falling sick again leh...hmmm

At stall 14, just behind the open bar...
hope that i sell more things than i buy!! =p
Okay... flea market aside, my ah dar was enthusiastically telling me he had plans for our march-in.
THAT's REALLY SURPRISING.
So he told me (in a super enthu tone) that he has decided to use his favourite song as our march in... he even told me which beat we can open the door to march in, and after walking to the stage we can end with a rockstar pose. I was so happy! Finally i do not need to crack my head anymore and make decisions!
Then he sang to me the song he wanted..
don't know whether to laugh or cry.. so off-beat de... and sooooo BENG. hahahha
he said he used to be a waiter and he always hear this song when he was at the banquet serving dishes.
He even suggested *in a super ENTHU tone again* that we can do SOMETHING SPECIAL!
Like serving the 1st dish as waiter and waitress!!
ah dar, ah dar.. I really dont know what to say....
That's the cute thing about him anyway hahaha
So don't be surprised if you see us serving your dish.
yeah.. it was his idea. hahah

The layout of Temasek Ballroom.
It's under renovation now and I heard there will be chandeliers in the ballroom. Hope it will be pretty pretty.
We will be having a long march in! Anyway, it won't be that long too cause we have only 16 tables, not 50. hee hee

it seems like...
it's not working hahahah
don't know about the collagen content, but the taste is hmmm...AVERAGE.
Tenseup is definitely better. But of course a bottle of tenseup is at least 50 times more expensive than this.
