Thien Kee Steamboat Restaurant. Hainanese Chicken Rice

Our late chicken rice lunch at Thien Kee Steamboat Restaurant 黃金瑞記煖爐, at Golden Mile Tower,#B1-20, 6001 Beach Road. 
Hainanese Chicken @ $10. The waitress asked whether we wanted a half chicken ($16) or a $10 platter. Thinking that we should add on other side dishes, we opted for the platter. Nice but i miss the chicken rice stall opposite Golden Miles Tower. Oops. 
Fu Rong Egg Omelette @ $10. We ordered this without asking the price. Usually it costs around $6-$8. Hence we are a little shocked at the price. Nice, but there's nothing in the omelette that is worth the amount. 
Chicken kidney & liver @ $3. I don't really like eating chicken liver. The soft texture is not really my preference. 
The total bill came up to $27.90, includes 3 chicken rice and 2 drinks. We returned the wet tissues. Hee.. Save some money. 
One little hiccup. A strand of my hair landed on my rice and the waitress was serving the drinks. She highlighted to me that I have hair on my rice. And she won't…

聽見下雨的聲音 - 魏如昀

竹籬上 停留著 蜻蜓
玻璃瓶裡插滿 小小 森林
青春 嫩綠的很 鮮明

百葉窗 折射的 光影
像有著心事的 一張 表情
而你 低頭拆信 想知道關於我的事情

青苔入鏡 簷下風鈴 搖晃曾經
回憶是 一行行無從 剪接的風景 愛始終年輕

而我聽見 下雨的聲音
想起你用唇語 說愛情
幸福也可以 很安靜
我付出一直 很小心

終於聽見 下雨的聲音
於是我的世界 被吵醒
就怕情緒紅 了眼睛
不捨的淚在 彼此的 臉上透明

愛在過境 緣分不停 誰在擔心
窗台上 滴落的雨滴 輕敲著傷心 淒美而動聽

而我聽見 下雨的聲音
想起你用唇語 說愛情
熱戀的時刻 最任性
不顧一切的 給約定

終於聽見 下雨的聲音
於是我的世界 被吵醒
發現你始終 很靠近
默默的陪在 我身邊 態度堅定

Counting Stars - OneRepublic

Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I've been, I've been praying hard,
Said, no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars, yeah we'll be counting stars

I see this life like a swinging vine
Swing my heart across the line
And my face is flashing signs
Seek it out and you shall find
Old, but I'm not that old
Young, but I'm not that bold
I don't think the world is sold
I'm just doing what we're told
I feel something so right
Doing the wrong thing
I feel something so wrong
Doing the right thing
I could lie, coudn't I, could lie
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive

Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I've been, I've been praying hard,
Said, no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars

Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I'…

I Forgot My Phone

There's more to life than just your mobile phone. Everywhere we go, we see people facing downwards to their phones. We call them, 低头族, which literally means, bow head group. We look at our phones while walking on the street, crossing the road, standing on a crowded train, seated down at dinner, and so on. Anytime, anywhere. Here's a video that is circulating around in Facebook.


This is pretty sad. I always nag the hubby to put away his phone for the short while as we have our meals. At least, let's enjoy our meal together, in each other's company instead of whoever that is in the phone.


The first comment made me feel guilty. I'm also one of the 10% who saw the video on my mobile, seated on the sofa, in front of the TV. (But I'm blogging this post on my PC haha)


Put away your phone for a while, while you catch up with your loved ones. I have to change too. I am always busy posting on my social media platforms, like checking in on Foursquare and posting my meal&#…

A photo a day : Dinner

Homecook simple fare for dinner. It's more like side dishes though. 

East Coast Park

A lazy Sunday afternoon at East Coast Park, cycling. It was raining earlier on, and luckily, it was not when we were there. The trees along the pathway gave us shade from the sun and it was cooling to ride under these big umbrellas. I like the feeling.

Weekend : KSL City Mall

A one day holiday trip to our neighbour with the hubby and fil. I suggested going to KSL City Mall as the place is pretty new and both of them had not been here before. Initially, the idea was to take a cab from the immigration. But we took a gamble and headed for the bus interchange. We were on board bus IM17 in 5 minutes. It costs RM1.50 per person. Cheaper than taking a cab. 
I wanted to rebond my hair as the mane is getting more and more difficult to manage. Haha I look a mess even after trying hard to tame it. It took me 4 hours in the salon. My tummy is growling from hunger. I should have planned my lunch before sitting here for this long. All this while, the hubby and fil shopped, massaged and lunched. This is the reason why I am scared to do anything about my hair. It takes way too long and I'm bored stiff sitting here.

I did my hair at RCS Hair Studio. Rebond for my hair length at RM 240 (includes cut and wash). The stylist cut away all my existing rebonded hair, so he o…

PUB Family Day

Today is PUB Family Day and it was held at Sentosa. My sister invited us to join them in a day of fun and charity. She is in the committee for the Charity Run, and to show our support, my dad, mum, the hubby and I participated in the Charity Leisure Walk.


We reached around 7.30am and the day was kicked off with a warm up session. Next, the Charity relay race was on. My family and I were by the side, cheering them on, though we had no idea who was who. Neither do we know who won. Haha.. Some of the teams were more united as the team members ran alongside the current runner, cheering on loudly.


Finally it was our turn. The Charity Leisure Walk. We thought it was a jog, so my family jogged. Haha.. Not as many people signed up for this event compared to the relay run. A little disorganised, but it was still a successful event done by my sister and the committee. Great job.


We spent the rest of the day eating the icecream provided, went for a lucky spin (I wasn't too lucky >.< )…

R.I.P Peter Rabbit

GF's pet rabbit, Peter, passed away last night. His small little body was unable to handle the anesthetic given for the treatment for his teeth problems.

The photos I have were from 2010 when Peter rabbit was still young, who was recently bought home. I still remember how his name came about. Peter rabbit always like to hop to where my GF's butt was. So she called him "屁的" and somehow evolved to Peter.


R.I.P Peter Rabbit...

Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD)

The hubby had been having pains at the jaw area. And my diagnosis is that he yawned too widely. I do not like the way he yawn, as whenever he yawn, there will be a cracking sound. Being the naggy me, I had always nagged him to yawn "smaller".

At a point, the pain was too much for him. Eating and talking became a problem. So, we went to the dentist at the hospital. The dentist diagnosed that he had Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD). Took an xray, and luckily it was not too serious. The dentist had him take some medication, and if the pain persist, the hubby has to return for another visit.


Here's what a TMD is:

A little sinful snack before dinner. Cheese fries. Looks delicious, but it does not taste that nice.

The Daily Scoop

GF brought me to The Daily Scoop for ice cream and waffle while we discussed a little on her wedding preparations. I never did realise that there is a Clementi Arcade after staying in Clementi for more than 20 years. A Cold Storage outlet is there too. 

We had double scoop icecream on waffle at $9.60. A scoop of Lychee Martini and a scoop of Kooki Monster. Delicious. But it wasn't satisfying enough even though the scoops are pretty big. Greedy me. Haha...
Their card is pretty cute. Thick card, good quality too.

Good luck

Today, is a pretty unlucky day. First me, then it was the hubby's turn. It's a foggy road for me. Praying hard it won't be the same for the hubby. Praying real hard. 

I can't help but feel lousy about everything.

Design : Logo + Namecard for AT Commodities

Got an assignment from a friend's recommendation. The requirement was to design a logo and a namecard for AT Commodities, a company that does trading from rice, cement, coffee, oil, tyres, stones and more. After a few rounds of revision, the client picked my 2nd logo design.

My initial idea to was use blue and orange. Blue represents the company trade in solid and fundamental items like cement and stones while orange represents trading items like coffee and rice, things that people use and consume in daily lives. But the client prefer not to use orange, hence the purple in the final logo design.

The arrows on the logo icon represent bringing trade commodities to customers from all areas or directions, with the circle being a point where customers are. Futura Bold Condensed is used as the font type as the font family Futura has an appearance of efficiency and forwardness.


Happy with my completed work. Hopefully the client is too. It was nice working with them as the client always p…

Marvel's Thor: The Dark World

For the second part of our anniversary date, hubby and I went for a movie. We caught Thor: The Dark World. I like the movie. There are funny scenes and tear evoking scenes. Remember to stay for a short clip after the movie.



The following contain spoilers.
I didn't know Thor's mother can fight. And she fight so well, so suave. I like. But sadly she died. The scene of the funeral process, the lights, the fire arrows, it was a pretty scene, very emotional, tear evoking. I love the funny bits by Loki while on their way out of Asgard to Malekith's world. And I finally understood the ending of the movie, while on our way home. Thor, Odin and Loki. Hmms... Quoted from Wikipedia: "In Asgard, Thor declines Odin's offer to take the throne and tells Odin of Loki's sacrifice. As Thor leaves, the image of Odin reverts to the true form of shapeshifter Loki, who, disguised earlier as a warrior, has usurped the throne."

In a mid-credits scene, Volstagg and Sif visit the C…

The Line Buffet at Shangri-La Hotel

It's our anniversary and the hubby is treating us to a pretty high end buffet lunch at The Line, located in the Shangri-La Hotel. I had heard excellent reviews from friends about this place. And the prices is not cheap too. The lunch is still affordable for us and there's a 15% discount for reservations made online.

The hotel is located a little off the way. We took a train, changed to a bus and walked 10-15 minutes to get to the hotel. We reached 10 minutes before 12. Buffet lunch starts only at 12 noon, but we were welcomed and showed to our seats.


The restaurant is brightly lit, surrounded by glass panels, allowing natural light to shine into the restaurant. A very modern looking place, with white and orange as its main colour theme. Chefs at each section were busy preparing for the upcoming lunch crowd. The place was pretty empty but was quickly filled up after 12noon.


We started with the cold food. Prawns, oysters and crabs. And I played with the food.


No feel for the cra…
