Sg trip 2014

 26/7/14 – 29/7/14

so im supposed to talk about my Singapore trip!

I believe this is probably like the 5th or 6th time i’ve visited Sg, i go there almost every year ( i think its every year consecutively for the past years ) well because its kind of a routine for my family. 

We usually go with other relatives.

This year the mood was casual, we’ve been to most of the tourist attractions before especially USS, the Merlion, Chinatown, Sentosa Island etc  So now we just focus on taking a break from our own country and just go to places we feel like going to.

Didnt do much on the first day.

We went to Orchard side the next day, kinokuniya, takashimaya, chinatown those so called ” hot spots” i guess


found these cute mini plushies in KinoCYMERA_20140727_113038CYMERA_20140727_145222

Behold, chinatown.

Oh we also went to Marina Bay later in the evening 😀

The view at night


This was dinner, and how their Nasi Lemak looks like 😦 wished there was Sambal though.  


eheh, i like how their Slurpee cups have line Characters on them, SO ADORABLE!

On the third day we went to the Science Centre 🙂 it was my favourite place among all, because Science is always cool.

My lovely breakfast, which was delicious and quite affordable.


optical illusions in the science centre


haha saw this poster, SO CUTE. notice how the little sperm cell is giving the ovum a flower.

Didnt take much pics in the science centre though, just some private ones.

Anyways, that marks my Sg trip with my family and relatives, it was a good getaway,and if it werent for the high currency exchange rate, i wouldve bought more stuff, too bad though.



Fahrenheit 600

Anyone heard of the cafe named Fahrenheit 600? So i finally went there to try it out and for those who are finding a place with a nice ambiance, filling italian food, affordable weekday sets, this is really the place 🙂

Its located at Publika, im not too sure which side of Ben’s it is but one of Ben’s sides are clearly visible at the entrance of this cafe heh

Anyways, their weekday lunch sets are affordable, for around rm 20 ( after tax and service charge ) they provide a main dish, a drink and dessert of your choice, its really worth it to me at least 🙂

Picture time :3






Even if the set lunches are not to your taste, their ala cartes are at reasonable prices as well 🙂 and its superrrr filling because of the pasta and pizza bread.

i’d love to go back to try the lasagna though 🙂

So yeah, i’d give it a 4.5/5

good service, nice ambiance, really cool place to chill, awesome desserts, food’s delicious, and most importantly worth the price!



Tribute to a friend’s Pet

One of my buddies is having a hard time now, i believe her pet dog of 17 years is passing away any time soon.

I just hope everything is going well for her. Ive seen that dog numerous times everytime i go to her house, and i remember how ganas(fierce) it always was, haha..

He’s dear to her and her family and i know they’re going thru a hard time now.

Whenever it happens, i just pray that he will go in peace.

Honestly i dont know how to comfort them,but i really feel sad hearing about him.

So this is a tribute to her 17 year old dog, Duffy.

I hope everything will get better, and just take care of yourself, he will never leave you guys and i know that you guys loved him as much as he loved you guys.

Cheer up, girl! we’ll be here , always.



First day of Degree classes

Its the first day today, and im quite happy about starting new.

Its really a whole new feeling compared to last time in Pre-tertiary studies, the lecturers were great, and yes introductory to the whole course was quite boring, but i can foresee that the classes would be okay, especially for Public Law, ive got my eye on that subject.

It just so happens that my lecturer for Public Law sparked some English history facts and i managed to answer everything ( mel helped! :D) and i finally feel like all my hours used to watch history documentaries after SPM to kill time really wasnt to waste.

Ive always had a fond interest on History, particularly civilizations and European history. I probably got it from my mom, because since young she exposed me to news and stories about the late Princess Diana ( she was everyone’s inspiration back then ), about other royal families and also on encyclopedias.

Back then when technology wasnt as accessible as it is now with all these smartphones and laptops , and computer games, what we did during the holidays were just watching the TV and reading these encyclopedias.

It opens your mind, oh how times have changed and how we all just bury our heads in our laptops and smartphones these days.

Anyways, i can really some potential in this subject to be a subject for me, finally im REALLY interested something im doing, and i hope i can do well in that subject.

other than that, Mr Tan for Criminal Law is really hilarious. Just adorable, he laughs at his own jokes and he even acknowledges it.

haha im liking how this is turning out to be.Well, gotta be ready to buck up too!

Hope my instincts dont prove me wrong.


Basic Chocolate cake

I had my highschool buds over the other day and months of not seeing each other. After lunch and all that, they came to my place to bake!

We wanted something simple, easy and tasty, so we decided on making just a simple chocolate cake.

I couldnt really find a recipe that satisfies all the ingredients that i have at home, so i decided to wing it by modifying the recipe from a simple vanille butter pound cake.


250g butter (2 sticks)
220g sugar
240g flour
4 eggs
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup of milk (sour cream ,yogurt or buttermilk will make it moist) – about 200ml-250ml
a pinch of salt

First, beat the butter and sugar into the mixer, add eggs one by one and also vanilla.
Then add all your dry ingredients in a bowl.
Mix in the dry ingredients into the butter mixture and alternate with milk.
Place in baking mould after its all combined.

Bake for 35 minutes at 170c or when you poke a toothpick in and it comes out clean.

this cake honestly tastes a little bit like twiggies, it doesnt take too long to make and it came out great 😀

we piped on some cream cheese icing and some chocolate ganache in the middle and it became this sinful monster>>>






Ola here we are with our ”creation” haha




Looking back at 2013

This shall be my post that everyone has about the previous year and all. Lets go!

2013, was the year i turned 18. I started college this year and its like a whole new chapter in my life. It was a big change, transitioning from being a high school student that depends on my parents for everything from transport to lunch and strict school rules to the college life where everything was more flexible and all..

Even so, im still a child in my parents eyes.. And somehow, i still depend on them, but its just very different how things work now.

So yeah, this year couldve been great, but i think i chose the wrong subject in A levels…  :< and it made me dread going to college on many days..

On the side note, this year, i finally got my smart phone, I also got my driver’s license, I rekindled my love for maple story, and also i joined the Rotaract club in my college.

Also, i’ve learned alot about public transport and places around KL ( though im still not too good at it) its still some progress.. I definitely made alot of new friends since im in college and im glad to say i found a bunch that i can really rely on 🙂

Im happy that i’ve occupied my time quite well this year as theres never really time to just slack and do nothing. There’s always something to do!

I baked alot this year, especially with yeeyong and we finally went on a date. Like after soo long. And he took me out for dinner for my birthday, and speaking of birthdays, my college mates really surprised me with dominos on that day 🙂

Rotaract had been quite good to me as well, and i attended the installation dinner and the company was great.

I started teaching tuition this year, and it really helped me financially for extra allowances and all.

I went through the first half my A levels and i think i tried my very best to do so, and no matter the result, i shall be content because i really worked hard for it. No worries as long as i can pass and move on really.

I also went to Hong Kong , which was my first time going somewhere overseas and besides SG 😀

so yeah thats pretty much it with 2013, but i must say the best period of 2013 was the last 2 weeks of it, that was the time i enjoyed the mosttt throughout the year 😉

Throughout, i try to ignore the bad sides of this year but it there was a rating bar where i can rate this year compared to the last 18 years of my life, i would give it a 5.5/10.

Some days are tough to go by, but i guess its important on how to take it. Just appreciate what you have, and try to occupy yourself in any way possible.

the only things i regret about this year is the fact that i couldnt make it for my exhighschool’s IU day , the mooncake festival, meeting up with my primary school mates, and also i couldnt make a surprise birthday dinner for yeeyong 😦 and of course the taking accounting for A-levels..

I tried to watch 50 movies in 2013 but only managed to watch 36 hahaha and i only read 2 books when i planned to read 10… oops

Anyways, thats 2013 to me, and for 2014, i really looked forward to it at first, because i thought there was a new student, but they decided to pull away at the very last minute.. which made me sad a little because i was really looking forward to it.

SOO yeah.. and it happened on the 2nd day of the year.. i just hope that as this chance goes by, there will be better ones waiting for me.

As for now, what i look forward for this year (2014) is for everyone to be happy, and for my AS results which will be out in a few weeks to have an average of B/C grades, and also the upcoming Penang rotaract trip.. Other things are yet to come so thats my hopes for now.

All the best to me and to everyone..

till then, Jia you!



Christmas Holiday 2013

Finally.. holidays from my college..

Im just soo happy about this holiday you have no idea… Anyways, this holiday has really regenerated my energy and all that.. its just so rejuvenating, and its like all it took was just a little rest and break to lift up my mood again.

Anyways, all good things must come to and end, so here i am, on the last day before college starts all over again.

So im gonna start from just before my holiday began, which was the wednesday before christmas.

its the time of the year again where my cousin, Teng Teng came over for the epic sleepover +bonding session+ comic fiesta+ DOING EVERYTHING TOGETHER TIMES. its a yearly thing , and its one of the things we look forward to in the year.

Anyways, teng was supposed to come on the thursday or friday but somehow she came earlier because of the convenience of her parents and all, which means more bonding time together! unfortunately not so soon since me and my sister were still having classes and all.. oops..

So she bonded with my mom and my brother instead.

For the first 2 days we didnt do much, and we couldnt stay up much but on friday we finally begin our epic times! we watched Red Cliff I and II together till like 2-3am while eating chipssss 😀 sadly i fell asleep.. after the first movie and i slept through the whole 2nd.. ughh dont get me wrong the movie is really great but somehow.. the sofa is a sleeping pill to me.

The next day, my sister had to go out with her friends at night so me and the rest of the family went to my other cousin’s place. i rewatched the movie there haha. We didnt do much, just using our laptops there.

Stayed up til 3am that night, and we had to wake up early to shower and prepare for CF the next day yeayy :DDD

we only slept for like 3 hours but we still managed to get ready and we took d train to KLCC.so here are some pics from that day, there was much more pics than that but i’ll just post the few from my phone here.




this is us 😀

so yeah, this year was less enthusiastic somehow as compared to previous years :/ but in the end we still had fun 🙂

we went to Johnny rockets after that for dinner and boyy that was good hotdogs mann yum  :DD maybe its because we were too hungry but meh, still good.. went around Curve and finally came home

Monday was karaoke chill day! we were all dead tired after the day before.. but me and my siblings and Amily went to karaoke for the first time! 3 hours straight and its only RM 9.90 inclusive of food and drinks. Their lunch was quite good i must say..

went home after that and we all took a nap while watching tv haha, after that it was maple time~ and some story sharing hahah

Tuesday was finally christmas eve but sadly we had to spend d day keeping the stuff around the house because my mom was planning to paint the ceiling and some walls 😦 ughh so while she was wrapping presents, me and my siblings and teng were busy lazing around and wiping and keeping the stuff.. booo

Went to the christmas party at night 😀 and it was also my niece’s birthday. CYMERA_20131224_230525

This year, we celebrate christmas in a rather different wayy.. guess what, we were painting the ceiling and walls. it was tough, really, even poor teng teng had to help hahhah it was lots of moving furniture, walking up and down, climbing and damnnn by the time we were done it was 10pm 😦

And its not over yet because we only did the hall that entire day.. but it was worth it because we had great pizza that night :DD yoohoo


The next day, me and my siblings and tengteng went out to watch a movie , first time as well, we watched 47 ronin and it was pretty great..

tried dip n dip and then mcd and after walking around for a while.. it was time to go. it was rushy because teng teng’s dad was on the way already 😦

it was a sad send off and i almost cried because i guess we were just getting too attached to each other. sigh.. next year would be busy for us and we dont know whens the next time we meet so..

Anyways, after that, me and my family went on the continue painting the kitchen parts til 10pm again :C it was tiringgg but nonetheless we managed to finish the kitchen parts that day..

Friday was a lazy lazy day and we had to repaint the entrance of the house area because it was peeling abit.. today was quite a lazy day because it wasnt like we must do everythingggggg kind of day.. just casual, putting back the stuff and all that.

Saturday was my brother’s early birthday celebration~ and we had steamboat, i dont remember doing much that day. Just sitting around waiting for the relatives to arrive. My niece is just so cute she followed me so much :DD ahh cute cherry

So yeah,it was quite fun, we watched a movie called shaolin and part of hancock after they left. mhmm

my family went to mount kiara where my sis is doing her intern on sunday just to check out the area and we also went to publika.. we went out late so we couldnt do much today.

Lunch was great thoo omgg good japanese food, perhaps the best ive eaten so far 😀

And then it was monday again,today my mom decided to paint my grandma’s room and its probably the last place to paint.. and damn i realize ive spent most of my holiday painting the house hahaha.

It was quite alot of work and tedious.. but we manage to complete it by 5pm, which was great. So yeah

Tuesday  is the 31st of December which is the last day of the 2013, had lots of thoughts that day, Me and my family ( excluding my sister) went to sunway piramid to run some errands and i got some pretty cool stuff  🙂



and sadly i didnt go anywhere to countdown and instead i was on maple with Sureene and later Florence HAHAHA yeeyong was at Malacca with friends and other places were too crowded. so i just stayed home..

We went to MCD as usual with my cousins for the first meal of the day 😀 and its also somesort of a routine.

Andddd woops it 2014!

I met up with Kai Yun, Qian Nee, Jeff, Dik Ken and Wengkin on new years day and we went to publika. again haha

Sad.. i wish this day wouldnt come so soon.. but it did. Sighh… Some plans for the year were disrupted today and its only the 2nd day of the year, i hope that there would be better things to come as i quite look forward to 2014.

I really dont want to go back to college… besides seeing my friends.. everything else just makes me sad..

But everything must go on as usual, and soon i hope, the day where i can finally rest for a period of time would come.

So this is to 2014! lets hope you work out.
