We were as one babe
For a moment in time
And it seemed everlasting
That you would always be mine
Now you want to be free
So I'm letting you fly
Cause I know in my heart babe
Our love will never die, no

You'll always be a part of me
I'm a part of you indefinitely
Girl don't you know you can't escape me
Ooh darling cause you'll always be my baby
And we'll linger onTime can't erase a feeling this strong
No way you're never gonna shake me
Ooh darling cause you'll always be my baby

I ain't gonna cry no
And I won't beg you to stay
If you're determined to leave girl
I will not stand in your way
But inevitably you'll be back again
Cause ya know in your heart babe
Our love will never end no

You'll always be a part of me
I'm part of you indefinitely
Girl don't you know you can't escape me
Ooh darlin cause you'll always be my baby
And we'll linger on
Time cant erase a feeling this strong
No way you're never gonna shake me
Ooh darlin cause you'll always be my baby

I know that you'll be back girl
When your days and your nights get a little bit colder oooohhh
I know that, you'll be right back
Ooooh! baby believe me it's only a matter of time
You'll always be a part of meI'm part of you indefinitely
Girl don't you know you can't escape me
Ooh darling cause you'll always be my baby
And we'll linger on
Time can't erase a feeling this strong
No way you're never gonna shake me
Ooh darling cause you'll always be my,....my baby....
You'll always be apart of me (you will always be)
I'm part of you indefinitely
Girl don't you know you can't escape me
Ooh darling cause you'll always be my baby
And we'll linger on (we will linger on)
Time can't erase a feeling this strong
No way you're never gonna shake me
Ooh darling cause you'll always be my baby
You will always be my baby

bombed my calorie count last night at Tatsuya. hahas this Jap restaurant located opposite Paragon at the Crown Prince Hotel. Rather visible if you take the sidewalk. nice warm cosy place. with very good service and of cos very applaudable jap food. (: but for me, it will be a once-in-a-very-blue-moon affair since i d only come with my parents. the bill s just too much to swallow. hur hurs.















visited Relish a few weeks back with wilson & cj. very nicely done up place. Opened by head chef from Wild Rocket@ Hangout Hotel. Chef Willie Low. Tucked upstairs in a quaint corner space at Cluny Court, which is located next to Serene Centre. Just head up the escalator outside Gastronomia/ Cold Storage and it can be seen. serves nicely done burgers. Recommendations are the Relish Burger, Lamb Pita Burger & the Ramly Burger. (though in my opinion you can get Ramlies at a much cheaper price).







this is a long long overdued post. visited Basil Alcove along middle road at Fortune Centre for chow's bdae celebrations last yr.that place s surprisingly near our sch! here are the yummy photos!

Smoked Duck Breast

Grilled Salmon with mashed potatoes


Grilled Cod Fish with spinach puree

Chocolate Decadence

Tiramisu & Strawberry Shortcake

all their food are reasonably priced and very nicely presented. definitely worth several comebacks! (:

alrighttt. im BACK! hahas its 2008's 1st entry! (:
found my passion in writing again. -applauds-
anyhows/ 2007 has been a great year. great frens, family, food, fun. to sum it up isnt easy.
and im not gonna try. haha life s all about moving on ya! so no looking back.
but of cos. i ll update about my hk food escapades & singapore s too.
jus attended a career talk by AFC (Asian Food Channel). interacted with top executives of the company. was really an eye opener. i think i found my passion. i wanna go into the media industry... to channel my skills into marketing & communications. sounds real fun! (: looking forward to submitting my CV to them and hopefully get an internship offer this june *beams*

aights. back to floggin. here are the peektures for my trip to hk last dec! enjoy!!
HongKong, the pearl of Asia, is truly a place where cultures from the East meets that of the West. the vibrance in this city is reflected through the endless nightlife and flow of people day in day out. cultural fusion is also very evident in the foods that are found in HK, and that has made living in HK a very attractive option. Albeit the hustle & bustle of this city, HongKongers do take time off their busy schedules to spend on quality food and entertainment. Karaoke is one form of it, and going on hiking trips is popular among the younger generations as well.
talking about food, it will be never ending as HK simply has too much good food to begin with.
during my trip, i sampled some of the best dishes i have ever had and I hope to discover more during my many trips to come! (:
this 2 pizzas are from Pizza Express! Pizza Express has 3 branches in HK & they serve real authentic pizzas. thin crust, rich ingredients. they even have healthier options available! such as wholewheat pizza crust for the health-conscious.
me & wilson finished the two pizzas! they are huge right. i love th parma ham pizza (above). reallyyy good. the cheese shavings on top finishes off each bite with perfection! the parma ham s fresh and succulent too. wilson chose the mushroom pizza (below). its nice too! but i reckoned more kinds of mushroom could have been added (: but its good too! tho i prefer my choice -beams-

after pizza, we walked all the way to causeway bay!was a long long long walk from central. but twas cooling. so we didnt mind. ate at yee shun milk company!! the steamed milk there s to die for. tho i found another dessert shop selling an alternative to it. but yarh i ll ALWAYS eat this everytime i go back. they have a few outlets in HK. one based in causeway bay. near times square. but it actually originated from macau! (:

alright this is damn random. but i tink this girl i saw at macs
is duper cute. she jus got off sch and having tea break with her daddy
her cheeks are soooo red & chubs!! hahas she s made famous already. hur hur
had dinner with daddy jason & wilson at harborside grill at macau jockey club. since we are members, we can eat there anytime we want. hur hur. on my dad's acct of cos. but the Western food there s really decent! i d say delicious in fact. look at that below. baked mussels with miso cream & wine sauce. real juicy & cheesy. YUM!
the mussels are jus appetizers. the main dishes were as follow. this is the pan-seared ribeye steak (below) with greens. elder bro's dish. looks really presentable & delectable. n yupp its nice! the portions could be bigger though.(esp for guys)
mine finally came. after waiting & waiting. *the others' came at least 15 mins before mine*
its the baked salmon cod fish in pumpkin saffron sauce & alfafa greens. fortunately, my wait was not in vain! i think my dish was the nicest of everything. really. alot of effort was put into weaving strips of salmon along with cod and then bake it, before pouring the saffron sauce over. really creative! (:
met carlo and dora for dinner on xmas! (: with their lovely daughter annie. had dinner at this jap restaurant at sheraton. its my dad's fav jap food haunt. he knows practically all the staff there. including the chef of cos (: so we had special attention while we were there & they came up with a tailored kinda sashimi platter for us. those fish are flown in fresh from Japan every fortnight. so happen to have real nice ones that evening ! (: esp the toro pieces. real meltish!
the main courses were gobbled up quickly as we were all hungry. OOPS. so sorry. no photos for them. well i thot every beginning shud have an end. so here s the dessert photo!! we had pumpkin ice cream for dessert. really nice! refreshing & healthy tasting. hur hur
okay i swear this is the best ramen place i ve ever been to. interested parties DO ask me about it. its reallyyyyy good. everything s made perfect to ur preferences. your own tailor made ramen bowl!! the cha-shu ramen (below)

my side dish, the meat balls (below)

mine!! black sesame noodles with black fungi & shaven corn bits! (:

some random cha-chan teng at mongkok. served traditional cha-chan-teng eats. including this mushroom veg & maw beef brisket rice. real cheap! tasty too!! (:


alright that s all for now. updates again soon! (:

ydae was a super good fridayy!!! i shopped so much. hur hurs. retail therapy s realllyyyyyyy good. my gosh. shopped like MAD.first up. when i opened the exit of SESS leadin to mr bean. there was this huge mess of stalls having a flea market. omg. jus rummaged thru the crowds to shop. very nice vintage tees. hahas tho i know they re fr bugis. sellin for 11bucks but alright laa. i love em. so jus bot a few while waiting for wong. thn wong came. unfortunately didnt see anythin he fancied. so me him eugene went off to queensway to shop. joan was at facial so eugene was sorta left w nth to do also. n he needed berms. soooo we went shoppingg!! at first i tot queensway wudnt ve much of my stuff. boy i was wrongggg. i bot 2 pairs of jeans. 29.90each!! thn a dress. 2 pairs of earrings. that s about it. very happy. loved my buys. joan came after her facial. she bot a dress too! (: LBD. sexayyye. anws. wong & eugene bot shirts and berms lar. yay. thn after shopping. eugene went home for dins. while we sent joan to town so she could go meet edmund & janice. yapps. thn me & wong headed off to meet justin. thn off we were to dempsey! justin havent been there before. so twas a greattt chance to show him dah place. i made reservations at barracks. this place slo recommended. (: thanks babe!! it was a greattt choice.

the menu s creatively decorated with soldiers and mess tins were used to contain utensils.. CUTE. thn we made our orders. i had the perfumed chicken breast roulade.


it was great! tho it doesnt look amazingly appealing. i assure u the taste s great. esp those golden raisins on top of the chicken slab. the chicken breast could be better though. i found it abit tough to chew. n there could ve been more carrot mash. couldnt taste much of it at all.

wong had the bay prawns capellini.its basically succulent prawns on a bed of angel hair pasta.with microherbs sprinkled all over.topped with cheese shavings. it tasted good too!!


the angel hair pasta s nice. tho wong tinks it taste like bee hoon. i think it really soaks up the flavor of the dried chilli and microherbs effectively to give us wholesome flavors w each mouthful.

aights justin had the cod fish & chips!

the chips were good acc to them. i find the cod fish niceee! its like the LV of fish&chips. hur hurs. i couldnt taste the beer batter though. could ve been stronger. yarps. that ended our entrees. we were so full thn. so decided to share a dessert. had the barracks BIG strawberry shortcake. they emphasised that its the best. indeed it was!! but it wasnt BIG at ALL. hur hurs. but since we were full anyway, it was alright.

the shortcake s served warm in a small mess tin. there s condense milk concentrates at the bottom if im not wrong. the shortcake is slightly crusty at the top while there are layers of strawberry flesh in the middle layers and they re warm! (: real nice.

after dinner we wanted durians from the dempsey uncle. BUTTT so sad. his durians were sold out!! gosh. so headed to hougang area for some kickass durian. NOT. got ripped off instead. OH WELLS. we shall try better luck next time in geylang. these durian uncles shud be friendlier with their prices!!! -glares-

omg updated a tonne today. hahas till the next time. enjoy!! (:

met up with jerome last mon. (: its been ages since i saw him. he jus came back from taipei! some army trg. hur hurs. was feelin kinda down those days. good thing jerome sorta cheered me up la. hahas had sillly funn. like ordering something totally not on the menu n shocked the popcorn server at the counter. HAHA. kinda reminds me of the times i had w my best fren. we were always jus fooling arnd. being happy everywhere we go. hur hurs.


aights so it was dinner + movie. hahs i really was feelin rather sad. thn jerome msged in the nick of time to ask me out on a monday. which s good. kick away the mon blues that struck me. hur hurs. i wanted to try marmalade pantry @ palais rennaisance. so we bot tics for mr woodcock thn headed there. hahas dont ask me why mr woodcock. but i jus needed that boost of mindless laughs. (:

headed to marmalade pantry. it was like EMPTY. shockingggg. i tot it s closed lahh. apparently not. its jus that ppl dont usually dine there on a mon evening. hur hurs. which s good la. sorta had the whole place to ourselves. jerome conveniently said he booked the place. LIKE REAL. but yarh. the place s nice. like super chill for a sunday brunch or a weekday afternoon tea. (: i ordered the grilled pesto chicken wholemeal wrap with oven roasted butternut & tomato ($17)

its nice! the wrap is nicely toasted on a grill and the butternut's sweetness matched the savoury chicken nicely. jerome had the pan roasted beef tenderloin with thyme & garlic crust charred fennel ($27)



he let me try some. its nicee!! the portion s abit small for its price though. but the thyme matched the meat loaf very well. yumms. in the midst we were jus catchin up n all. bout his adventures in the wild. n my adventures in the drivin-me-crazy concrete envt of SMU. thn we ordered desserts! here their famous sticky date toffee pudding! ($10)

its warm and nicee! some ppl may not like it. but those who can take the taste of dates will love this. its warm and when paired with the chilled vanilla ice cream, it just leaves u cravin for more. besides that, we also had the homemade lemon tart with wild berries & raspberry coulis ($10). its duper niceeee. i loveeee the tangy zest of the lemon custard. really very nice. if i were to choose btw the two. i d go for the latter. hur hurs. no qualms bout that. aights. that ended our dinner.

headed off to watch mr woodcock. hahas its q a nice show lar. for those looking for mindless humor. u can really laugh q abit there. yarpps. cheers to the lemon tarted days to come!!
