Singapore: An Elephant's Big Day!

A couple of weeks ago, the kareshi and I flew to Singapore on a one-day trip for a very special elephant's birthday.

We had to wake up super early to catch our super early flight to Singapore. I barely had any sleep and the damned alarm clock rang at 4:30a.m. while I rushed to get prepared. 



The elephant had no idea we were coming over as we made all the arrangements with his awesomesauce girlfriend, Nelle. Exciting day!!!

When we reach the airport, Nelle was already at the arrival hall waiting for us. She brought us breakfast (eggs and toast) while making further arrangements and making sure that the elephant did not oversleep.

After our brief breakfast, we went to her cousin's japanese restaurant where we camped for like an hour plus. I believe the kareshi and I have what it takes to be a sniper.


The view from our position where we were camping while retaining cover. Nelle had to meet the elephant elsewhere so that we do not blow our cover.




The kareshi under cover. 使徒行者.


I swear we waited for almost a year as I felt many seasons had passed but Nelle and the elephant was still no where to be seen. I slept and slept and slept... Oh! Still not here! Gawddammit! Ah! My back hurts from all the crawling hiding.

Finally! After several decades! We can eat! And no more camping in static position!

But first! Lemme take a selfie....



The elephant and his beautiful girlfriend... Also, her cute cousin...



Mimimimimi... Mimi sexy sashimi-mi... Mememememe... Meme... Sexy Andy...


After that, we went back to their crib next to Katong and settle down... While the kareshi and his mistress elephant makes out, I practically fainted on the nearest available bed before tonight's dinner.


 


 Such a beautiful scenery... Quiet... 
It is so relaxing... I wished we didn't have to rush so much... :(
Nelle and the elephant brought us to this awesomesauce place which I did not know existed unless it was heaven and it's called "Hai Di Lao" ( 海底捞火锅 )  which was in Somerset.


Here's a link on 10 reasons why you should go to this place when you visit Singapore! And I am seriously not exaggerating this time...




The soup was super thick and flavourful. When you dip your fatty pork meat into it... 
OH-MY-GAWD!!! It tastes like magical rainbow-ish unicorn poop. Which is a good thing. I wish unicorn poop comes in a can. Mythical burst of flavour in a can!



 Here's the grumpy looking birthday boy elephant who looked like he didn't get what he wished for Christmas. Mouth Shut Smiley



But nothing puts a smile on the elephant's face like a mistress goat sitting on the elephant's lap...
Elephant: Come sit on my lap! MuahMuah! 
Goat: "No Thanks"



 Although it was quite a rush, it was an enjoyable weekend. Good food, great company and wonderful friendship. What more could I ask for? The simplest things in life are often the most fulfiling. Love It Smiley




 Bye bye, Singapore! See you soon!





 Lastly, here's a picture of the most beautiful cat, Mochi Mirana, the Priestess of the Moon!


It is cute! But it would hide under the table and strike you out of the blue moon! 



 *Actually it belongs to the owner of the place we stayed in Singapore... She's so cute! I adore her! :D


Sunday

One Year. Ichinen.

It's been one year since the kareshi professed his undying love for me. Haha. Everytime I think about it, it makes me laugh. I don't know why, but what started out as a friendship actually grew into something else.

Flowers which the kareshi gave when he professed a year ago. Dried them up and kept them.

I have known the kareshi for 4-5 years before he was my significant other. It is really creepy how he could know me so well. Like, he would know when I am tired or when I am craving for something. And what made me love him more each day is how much he loves me.

He will never get angry or raise his voice at me. No matter what I did wrong, he will always say, it's ok, it's alright, don't worry about it. He always tells me how unbelievable it is that someone like me would accept him. Well, it is unbelievable how someone could ever love me this much.

Well.. for our 1 year anniversary, the kareshi pre-booked a place at Acme Bar & Coffee in Troika, KL for our Sunday lunch. That was our pre-anniversary celebration.

"ABC"

Bacon & Snail... Acme's Breakfast...


The kareshi's face...


On the actual date of our anniversary, he brought me to Leonardo's in Bangsar... It was so freaking dark inside I can hardly see where I am going... So I didn't manage to take the picture of our super yummy food.
Leonardo's menu... 

Leonardo's theme is "Pork" but it is rather peculiar that they serve Pork Chop, Fettucinne Carbonara AND ALSO, BAK KUT TEH. Like seriously... And we saw a customer actually ordering their bak kut teh.




A special suprise which he picked on his own. 



I love you Guo Guo! ^^
Happy One Year!!


My Valentine

Long time no see. I am such a lazy fatty. Probably because the kareshi is a lazy fatty as well. But he is the sweetest fatty. I have never celebrated valentines day. Or more accurately, had never valentines day been made such a big deal in my life. 

This year my kareshi booked us a place at Hilton's. I was sick that day with running nose and slight sorethroat but I didn't want his efforts to go to waste so I went but did not take any pictures because I looked so horribleeeeeeee~ 

So let's fast forward...

 Chinese New Year decorations

Pink and red... Both my favourite colours!

Don't know why, but the kareshi is always having trouble taking "normal" pictures...

He looks really nice here, right? He even shaved... XD

My valentines gift~ Mary had a little ram... little ram...



FEW WEEKS LATER... It's my BIRTHDAY!!!

The kareshi had arranged a surprise birthday for me at my favourite karaoke place. With my close friends and colleagues. But I didn't take either pictures either because:-
1. I was wearing house clothes, like pyjamas
2. I was crying for like a whole 10 minutes! Dammit!

He bought a whole Pavlova from Alexis!! 


Then, at night, he brought me to this place called "Huck's Cafe" which he booked in January. ~_~"
It was located in Bangsar which is actually a house and the chef personally cooks for you.



I even had make up and lipstick...



Are we there yet?


Huck's Cafe (...or really, Huck's bungalow)



The place is really quiet... And I really liked the environment...



Wow. So feels. Much Romantic. Very love. 
(My english did not just became worse, it's just a reference to "doge" meme)



Piccies before din dins



Appetisers



Mushroom soup. I really like soups. And I loved this. 
There were at least 3 types of mushrooms in there.



Gourmet pie with a twist. There were pomelo leaves and it tasted like a fushion of cream soup with curry. =S


And last but not least... My favourite part of the meal... DESSERTS!!!


Earl grey tea. Brownies. And creme brulee. YUM! YUM! YUMS!! YUMMEH YUMMEH YUMS!!! 
Looking back, this made me really hungry...
*drools*


Would you like to know what the kareshi got me for my birthday gift? 



A SHAGBARK!!!
Omg! It is so freaking cute I could die. When it is upgraded, it wears a pair of sunglasses. I really love this shagbark. 
(it is a dota 2 courier, if you do not what is it)

Then, we spent the next day entirely playing with legos. (My second birthday gift). 



The kareshi always gets me gifts which meant a lot to me. Makes me really touched at times. Makes me feel like he really put a lot of thought into a gift. Efforts. Makes me feel that he really couldn't live without me. That he really understands me. That he really meant every word he said. That he really keeps his promises.


I Love You!
