dear husband, you are the sturdiest shoulders, and stronger arms that i can always rely on. i love you so, so much.
dear D bought a new phone recently, and i discovered that it comes with a camera app that is similar to snapchat, with many funny faces to put on our own. as much as i dismiss fads like that, i still had a field day with this, HAHAHAHA!
not being biased or anything, but i think we look best with kitty faces, don’t you think? hahaha!
weekend date with D again!
this happened quite long ago, hehe, but the photos will make the wait all worthwhile!
we visited the last kampung of singapore, and then dropped by at the japanese cemetery park too. both were D’s ideas. i don’t know how he got to know these places, and why he would think of going there, but i love it when D does all the planning, because he always knows the best things to do, and best places to go to! most importantly, he takes the best photos. ♥
OH NO I’M LATE AGAIN!!!
it’s been a week since my last (rather insincere) update, hiak hiak, and i’m afraid this will be one of those again, oh nooo!
D brought me to some ulu pandan peranakan restaurant for dinner, which i really enjoyed, not only because of the food, but also because the place was not really crowded, and…
there were good photo spots nearby, hahaha!
though it seems like D has another way of sabo-ing me on camera now, secretly zooming in max on my prata face, tsk!
i promise my next update will have more content okay?
the best thing to do after a hard day’s work…
D and i don’t usually eat at a hawker centre, but once in a while, especially after a long trip away from home, having such singapore-flavoured dishes is a welcoming treat.
now that we have scarlet to bring us around, we make it a point to venture out of our familiar territories, and try new food that we don’t usually have; things like char kuey teow and satay and all that, yums yums.
okay i better pause here for a bit because i’m starting to feel hungry, but it’s already past midnight here in sydney, and i only have milo snack bars in my room, of which i already had three, eeks!
making the best use of a lousy trip; we wanted to check out pasarbella at turf city, not quite knowing what it actually is. turns out we enjoyed GIANT supermarket more, hahaha! and this old audience stand too, actually. we are so good at finding backdrops, no?
so…the other weekend, D and i were doing something boring like sending his printer for repair, when we realised that we were just a few streets away from the magnificent haw par villa.
land of fun leh, of course must go!
it was a spontaneous decision, and a refreshing alternative from the usual city-centre date venues, me feel. but most importantly, admission is FREE!!!
or so i thought. *unamused side glance*
parking costs $5, and we didn’t even spend much time at the villa because we had plans to catch moonlight in town after.
sorry to be so petty, very uncool, i know. may i make it up to you with some exclusive photos of dashing dave enjoying himself?
i think he will kill me after this, but it’s an honour to sacrifice myself in the name of art. and entertainment.
though you probably won’t be interested in boring photos of me after all that, but just patronise me a bit lah, hor.
if only i can be as funny as D, but i guess there can only be one funny person in a couple. i shall just stick to being chio then. le sigh.
because i doubt anyone else will agree to do such a random, weird thing with me in the middle of nowhere – setting up a camera on top of a public electrical box, and posing with me under an overhanging tree in a dark alley.
that, my friend, is true love.
oh, and also us getting fat together, and still feeling happy about it.
presenting to you, a badly taken photo of the famous chong pang nasi lemak. my first time trying it, and i was totally blown away.
sorry, boon lay power nasi lemak, this humble little stall strategically located beside an army camp has won you in having the best nasi lemak in singapore. i guess there is something good about my imminent move to the north after all, hahaha.
i’ve always wanted to visit a cat cafe in japan, but due to one reason or another (it’s actually just my laziness), i haven’t gotten round to doing it. also, i reckon that it will be more fun if i get to do it with D, because to be honest, i know he loves cats more than i do, hahaha!
since there are a few cat cafes in singapore, i actually made an effort to do some research beforehand, so as to get the most out of the experience, since weekend dates with D are precious to me, and i can’t afford to be disappointed by lame stuff, hahaha!
after perusing seemingly endless online reviews of the various options available, i finally settled on the cat museum because…
1. it is the biggest, occupying four stories in one of the heritage shophouses along purvis street.
2. there is no food and drink sold here, unlike other cat cafes. i like this because some of the cat cafes make you purchase a drink and/or snack when you are there, and it’s usually ridiculously expensive, and doesn’t even taste nice. i’ve no time for flat, lukewarm coke, or some lame shit rainbow cake can? all i want to do is pet a cat, goddamnit!
3. it is run by volunteers, and ALL the reviews i saw say that they are very passionate, and genuinely care for the cats (which i witnessed for myself during my visit!).
4. most importantly, the museum is a non-profit social enterprise, self-funded by the owner with the key mission to educate the public about our community cats, and ultimately encourage adoption. in fact, interested visitors can adopt cats from the museum, as long as they meet certain requirements (“they” meaning the humans, not the cats, because all cats are perfect), which you can find out more about from the volunteers, or the cat museum website.
yap, so if you are a cat lover, or are sourcing for an interesting weekend date idea, or want to learn more about community cats in singapore, come to the cat museum. at least you are doing something good while playing with the cats. and also, you don’t waste time on lousy cake and lame coke, right? hahaha!
and now we feast our eyes on those furry cuties!
welcome to the cat museum!
kitty, kitty, come play with me! (kitty: ignore.)
so tiring to be cute.
kitties in action.
like a boss.
my favourite moment is when i got to hug this kitten, which was such a warm, fuzzy ball of fur that i instantly fell in love with her! ❤
though it may not be obvious, D is actually the real crazy cat uncle okay?!
anyway, that’s all we’ve got from our trip to the cat museum. wish we had stayed a bit longer, but we had to go home early for dinner because we had guests over. (argh!!!) a successful date nonetheless, so yayness!
