Still can’t pass my chin-up, thus everyday from 2pm to 4pm will have RT at the Gombak Recreation Center’s Gym. Quite good if you ask me, is like a 2 hours break from work just to work out. But it kinda sucks when it falls on your Mounting Day because it will eat up your break. And the worst thing is that Saturday need to come back for RT from 8am to 10am, because our OC is too garang, and he needs a life and time away from army. I still can’t understand why do people like army so much.
Today, LiXiang went out with her secondary school friends. I went out with my parents to shop around Suntec Area. My dad got a Nokia 6230 and I keep nagging at him to take good care of the phone because next time I might use it. Dinner was at Akashi Japanese Restaurant. Went to Nike Bird after that. The supervisor there recognise us and she did have a chat with my mom. My dad bought a Nike shirt for $59, I got myself a shoe bag and a pouch for $19.95 each. Sorry dear, I need the shoe bag to put my shoes because will have RT often and the cold storage/carrefour plastic bag is not lasting, we will get one more when we go Thailand =D
Caught a 9.20pm slot of Phantom Of The Opera slot at GV Marina on Friday. It is a musical movie and it is my first time watching this type of movie. Maybe that is the reason why they sing instead of using dialogue which makes it harder for me to grasp what are they talking about.
Had remedial training also on Saturday because I did not take the ippt due to a flu. But even if i take, I sure fail my chin-up station, still can do only 3. And my left knee is still injured after the fall in Provost, which is around 2 months ago. I think I better go see a doctor soon, then at least I can excuse ippt for the time being.
It is year 2005, had a very memorable countdown at Mindef Main Gate, I will never forget this countdown. LiXiang suppose to wake up at 9am for a haircut appointment at Harbour Front at 12pm. I call her at 9am to wake her up but after answering my call, she went back to sleep at 11.30am. LOL Went to fetch her for her hair cut, then she came my house to help me pack my stuff, threw away alot of CDs because the software is outdated, my wardrobe is so nice/neat for the first time, only 2 colors hanger is used, clothes are arranged gradiently according to their colors. I feel so fortunate. LOL. Thanks sweetie.
My mom taught her how to bake Blue Berry Cheesecake, it taste the same, no difference from what my mom make.
Since I am burning all my movies, and while waiting for that to happen, shall update this blog.
29th December 2004
Had dinner at Akashi Japanese Restaurant, which is my mom’s favourite Japanese restaurant because the sushi there is very nice and fresh, especially the Unagi Sushi($4 for 1 piece) and the Reverse California Maki ($12 for 8 pieces).
Guess it is abit too late for Christmas, but nevertheless, Merry Christmas 2004 everyone. 6 more days to 2005 and 14 more days to take down my ‘p’ plate.
Booked out at 12pm that day, luckily my section is dismounting on that day, if not I have to stay back till 2pm, but the bad news is that I am mounting on New Year’s Eve and the first day of Chinese New Year. Sighz, can’t celebrate New Year’s Eve with LiXiang =(
Booked out at 12.30pm. Left my house at 3.30pm to fetch LiXiang for movie. Wanted to watch The Incredibles at 9pm+ but apparently, GV Plaza, Cathay Cineleisure and GV Marina tickets have been sold out for the 9pm+ slot. End up we book the 12.25am slot at GV Marina.
Went to Orchard to shop around and to see the Christmas decorations. Had dinner at Pasta Cafe opposite Ngee Ann City Mos Burger to celebrate our 1 month (on 24th November 2004 will mark it). The food there was good, price on par with Pasta Mania. The queue was like never ending.
13th November 2004 (Saturday)
Went to get my hair trim at Everton Park, cost me $12, damn expensive considering it is trimming and not cutting. If there is a next time I think I shall cut it at Kranji Camp and it only cost $4.
Reece Cosy Bay at Kallang area, at first I thought it is an area but now I know it is the name of a restaurant. Tried out the food there, it is so-so and it has very little variety, it has like 5 main course and less than 10 different types of finger food, that is all for the food. They have much more liquor variety. But the ambiance there is good, nevertheless I still prefer Esplanade.
Been real busy with life for the last 2 weeks, finally today I had time to update my blogs which had not been updated for the past 2 weeks. Today’s one going to be a VERY long post. Bare with it =D
6th November 2004 (Saturday)
Booked out at around 12.30pm. Went to fetch LiXiang to Marina Square, did some shopping at Suntec City. Bought a Nike Dri-Fit t-shirt, they are giving 15% discount if you are paying by UOB credit card.
Went to pick up LiXiang, went to Marina Square for The Cellular. Luckily there was not much cars around the Suntec’s City circle, and I managed to negotiate the circle easily, nowadays negotiating circle is not in the driving test anymore. I swear I told the ticketing counter I want a 6.35pm show, but he gave me the slot at 4pm one, and I didn’t realise it till I went in at 6.35pm. I went to buy the tickets at 4.15pm, it is very unlikely that I will buy tickets for a 4pm show, sometimes need abit of common sense. This is the 2nd time that happened to me. Luckily the cinema was not crowded managed to get “free seatings” in the middle row.
The movie lasted around 90 minutes, the show was not bad, quite a unique plot and I think Nokia contributed alot of money to the movie for advertisement.
