Christmas is over and so is boxing day ^^ wheeeee` I had an awesome time!
Poor jacky had stomach upset on Christmas eve as we fed him with all kinda stuff on 23rd, his 2nd birthday. I cooked buttered pork chops for him.. And he also had drumstick, and other dog snacks apart from his usual day meal. hmmm..
Went over to darling's place for dinner on Christmas eve. His mum cooked 3 kg of crabs and also prawns. And his sis bought 2 kg Honey baked ham and a chocolate logcake home as well.. Darling's mum insisted tt i bring home some of it haha so yup i did.. All the foodstuff were great!
Wanted to go down to either esplanade or town to countdown, but went back home coz was too tired haha` But we did enjoy the time at home, my darling and me, plus my whole family sharing all the nice food - turkey, honey baked ham, famous amos cookies, chocolates, fish & chips and mix grill. haha. And i even concocted absolute raspberry vodka plus cranberry juice for darling and i.
Slept through 'peaceful night' and woke up to Christmas! Darling went back home in the afternoon coz he needed to look after his dad. And i went over to his place in the evening to change over at his place. Headed down to the Chevrons club in jurong east at 7+ and met up with his sisters and cousins for his cousin's wedding banquet.

Stressed out & on hiatus!
Feeling the stress coming down on me like the sky falling down on Chicken Little =(
Very important and tedious assignments, datelines to meet and heavy brainwork for tests. Not easy at all, but i believe we can all go through this together =)
So glad that Poster Summit Event has been postponed to end of Jan. If not we all wouldn't be able to breath..
So glad my lover's hung out his hands all the time, always willing to hold me with his arms and giving me all the support and love i need and most importantly, i love his bear hugs!! ^^
Now i'll leave my dear bloggy with some random shots..Taken at darling's cousin's wedding dinner last month..
yah i noe im humongous =(

Five golden rings~!
Now let's all sing along to the christmas carol - 12 days of christmas hehe` 5... golden... rings...! 4 calling birds 3 french hens 2 turtle doves and a partridge in a pear tree....
Got into Christmas mood partly coz of sandy lol! She kept on singing christmas carols to us everywhere anywhere in suntec on thursday. Yixian came over to my place after her practical test ended at 3 on that day... Went downstairs to fetch her coz she was asking me to recommend to her the nice food at the kopitiam downstairs.
Ended up she felt like eating goreng pisang but was too lazy to walk to the other coffeeshop so went home after getting only bubble tea. Told my mum about it and she cooked goreng pisang for her!! hehe` And yx was almost touched to tears lol`
Headed down to suntec after spending some time at my place and met up with sandy. Had dinner at Crystal Jade and then roamed around in suntec before i got some groceries at carrefour and we went back home. Spent alot of money on tt day, bought a super low cut sequined halter top (which i kinda thought of why i bought it in the first place lol) and also a short tube to go with one of my top..
Skipped tutorial and lectures on friday. But still, i went down to school to collect my specs lol i noe im crap. Then became a maid for the day and bought brunch from school for my mum, brother and darling.. Da bao 3 servings of nice nice canteen 2 fried fish soup and 4 packs of rice. Whoa, quite heavy to bring back, and even more bulky coz auntie put the rice into styrofoam boxes instead of plastic bags.. dots.. So i ludged the big red bag all the way home..
Darling's half day on friday! So he came over and enjoyed lunch with me ^^ Rested plenty at home coz he's got duty the whole day today till tml morning. Hmm poor thing.
Was too bored at home today, so went to Bugis after watching anime. Spent a few hours in Seiyu shoppin around and thinking of wad to get using the voucher..
Gotten a pair of silver heels which i thought was really sweet. hehe` Thought it cost only 29.90 as they only showed tt price for that 3 shelves of shoes... Spent a long time finding a shirt for darling.. Then when i was paying, they told me that the pair of heels cost 49.90 -.- (OMG) I've forgotten how much i've paid for my Sembonia sec 4 prom heels but this is something i definitely wouldn't get if i didn't have the voucher.. It cost friggin` ex. But i still got it and paid the extra for the shirt.
Hmmmm` Anyhow, im still quite happy with it lar lol` Not sure why i bought it for anyway. Photo taking? or Prom? oh, wedding banquet on Christmas lol`
And dumb me.... i just rejected Chris' treat to king kong midnight movie later!! Coz i told him im lazy.. haihai` nvm. Let him and his buddy er ren shi jie ba =)
Yixian's off to Korea today till 24th! Lucky gurl, hope she enjoys her trip fully and have fun!!
Deck the halls with boughs of holly! fa la la la la la la la la~

Rise & Shine everyone!!!!!!! (beware: Visual feast below...)
Morning! hee` Started this day by waking up really early.. (Psstt.. I'll definitely hit the bed in the afternoon.) Supposed to go to school to do fyp, but suddenly occured to me that the other group is still using the pcr machine, so yep.. Gonna do PCR tml then, and rest well at home today.
I'm quite happy, though was quite down and out for a while yesterday. Wanted to get new contacts in school, but went to check my eyesight and discovered that my degree increased alot.. So might as well make a new pair of specs and forgo the expensive contacts first (coz i have astig on one side). So yah, gotten a pair of specs which cost me a hundred instead. haihai` Sad case... Heart ached coz of the money and also of my lousy eyesight.
Anyhow, darlin came over and accompanied me yesternight coz i told him i was super bored the night before. He's really sweet, and im really glad he's with me. So darling and i had supper together. Again i had the fish maw soup set. (fish maw soup plus pan fried dumplings for 5 bucks) coz i was craving for something soupy...
Happy yesterday and very much contented coz for the few months of wasted experiments, winnie and i have finally gotten some kinda results! Yes we did. And boy was i happy. So we'll work on it to perfect the results. Finally i feel some kinda motivational force. wahaha` Really glad. ^^
Here are the shots my clique took both in school and at billy bomber's.. Just gotten the rest from dee yesterday so yep.. Here comes!Shots taken in school:Winnie with the HUH lookWinnie zi lian!Winnie sulky face wahaha!ELAINETaken in IL lab using the colony counter. ^^ hehe super cute ar!XIAOLINGBilly Bomber'sPretty Elaine`Wacky Winnie`dee::winnie::xiaoling::uu::elaine::me::eugene::deeAll of us except dee! ahhaElaine with her cream of mushroom..UU acting vulgar..Delicious Desserts!

I'm a rounded figure..
Rounded, not meant as a pun in literature terms.. But as in literary form hehe` Coz i've eaten far too much and overstretched my stomach. *growl it's not a good thing coz i'll have an even bigger appetite from now on!!!
Anyhow, my lover came over to my place on friday night, had supper together with chris. And darling bought way too much but he managed to finish them up anyway. Crap. He has a bottomless pit in his already complex body.
So yep.. He even gotten 3 slices of YUmmyLicious choc fudge cake from victor's cafe when he came over -.- We only ate 1 slice though, still left with 2 in my fridge now..
Both of us woke up at 8 in the morning and prepared to go down to pasir ris. Plan for the day was to book aloha loyang chalet. So took a bus down and whoa! Darling gave me a surprise coz we were supposed to meet up with yiting but he didn't tell me. lol` Been few years since we've last seen each other. So the 3 of us went delifrance for breakfast then book the chalet after.
Took cab down to tampines and went for ktv session!! Spent a great deal of time singing nice songs and enjoying duets with baby. Chose their curry chic rice for lunch... Average ba.
Didn't wanna walk aimlessly in the mall so went to ya kun for eggs, toasts and drinks! Really like their eggs, just nice hehe` 3 of us spent some time chatting before we took 72 back home..
Started raining heavily halfway through the bus journey and we slept like dead logs in the bus.. Ended up the bus driver gotta come up to the 2nd deck and chase us out of the bus. hehe` ^^
And so baby and i braved the storm home, changed and slept again.
Had supper again this time with chris downstairs till 2+..
This morning darling and i quickly showered and rushed down to marina square, just in time to catch 11.50's "The Descent".. The movie's really exciting, except the part where they kept on climbing and nothing happened.. Anyhow... It was actually quite mundane towards the end when they kept on meeting those freaks..
Patronise sandy's working place and she gave us mountainous scoop of Venezia ice cream!!! Check this out! I still love their dark choc and tiramisu!! Wahahahah`
Had lunch at food court thereafter coz i was craving for kimchi soup to warm myself up.. Not bad at all hehe` And i love the concept of their food loft, so many varieties and there's even a place selling pizza. Do try yah!
Went back to our own cribs after tt coz darling said he's got tuition at 6 and i didn't wan to tire him by sending me home.. But crap! He went loitering around at other mall after tt, saying tt he can't possibly get me a present with me around. hehe` Sweet, i love him. He's the best thing that has ever happened to me. =) And now i can't wait till friday when i can see him.

Oh it's finally come to the end of the week..
It's been a really hectic week this time round. Presented proteomics PBL on monday, was bombarded with alot of questions, but all in all was quite fine lar. Went out with clique after that (uu, xl, winnie, elaine, dee & eugene). Was thinking of going to glasshouse fish & co for dinner but decided not to after that and went to scout for japanese dinner buffet at cineleisure. Don't really wanna try the yuki yaki restaurant so went down to heeren and check out sakae..
They dun have dinner buffet there too, though some branches have.. Hmmm` Anyhow, we decided to just choose any restaurants on the same floor coz we were too hungry and half dead le. So we chose Billy Bombers in the end and spent a great helluva time there.
Tried their cape cod fish & chips, was not bad at the starting but it turned out to be super salty after that, wondering why so. They even had a tasting session of mine coz my last piece of fish turned out to be directly churned with sea salt -.-
Had dessert as well - apple crumble with ice cream plus brownie with ice cream too. hehe` And my so called friends actually had great fun out of teasing me. hmph` Spent about 2 hours there and roamed around annex and took photostickers after tt, with the guys! haha ^^ It's funny how mountain tortoise-d they were. Super hilarious time decorating the pics and laughed out hearts out!
Yep, so that's monday. ^^
Went for the Edvance thingy at convention centre on tuesday. Talk from 10-11, then had lunch and slacked at Leo Club's clubhouse before going for the 1pm talk.
Visited the booth and patted the german shepherd.
Spent the whole of wed and thurs doing FYP. Sucks.
Watched alot of good movies on HBO for the past few days, Troy (again), Dawn of the dead (again), Global Effect (super nice!).. Gonna catch big fish and all later wheeeeeee`
Decided to skipped today's lectures and have a good slack day at home. Finally been able to sleep in today. Woke up at 11 just now and went to the market to have brunch with mom and chris. Mum's fren is so nice, treated me to lontong. ^^
Chatted for a super long time before we walked back home. Went into the salon to pluck my eyebrows. First time! ahha` =) Not bad lar, but quite painful that my tears came out. hehe` She also taught me how to draw my eyebrows... hehe`
Alright! Gonna be a couch potato now!
