Disney's Bolt

Been pretty busy with work lately, but as yesterday was a public holiday,
we managed to catch Bolt, Disney's latest animation flick. :)
(Nice story line, but it remind me a little of The Truman Show)

Its heart warming and would probably appeal to all pet owners out there.

The deranged hamster was cute but scary (Hahahhaah!) and I liked the cool cat :)
Of course Bolt was cute too, especially at the start where he was a cute little puppy.

I think the best part of it was the end credits! I love the artwork!!
I'd watch the show a couple more times if that was how the whole show looked like! :)
Think this has become one of the main reasons why I enjoy watching animations these days... the fabulous artworks at the end! :)

Car meet up

Had a car meet up last week with some of the other owners of the Suzuki Lapin.:)
Its was nice seeing many of us parked in a row, but a pity that it was a rainy day.
Although only 5 of us turned up, but that's already almost 50% of the population! :p
Yups, there's only 11 of us here in Singapore.

A nice sunny day for a break!
Sometime last week, we decided to take off from work and head out for a bit. :)

So we headed off to Ikea for lunch and also to pick up some stuff for the home there. Its great going to Ikea on a weekday coz it can be quite a nightmare on weekends with the crowds, especially in the Ikea cafe.

Lunch! Yummy! :)
After lunch I though it'll be a pity if we didn't head outdoors since the weather was looking great. So we headed for the beach, to polish up on my cycling skills. Hehehe, I may have forgotten to mention that I had just picked up cycling a few weekends ago. Before that I had never thought that one day I'd be able to balance, much less get anywhere on 2 wheels! But a few lessons and some wobbles later, i managed to get a hang of it! :D
So anyway, we rented our bicycles and cycled along the beach. Its was quite fun and also nice that there were not many people there either! :P
Spotted these large sand castles at the beach...

Hmmm, maybe I should consider staying in to work on the weekends and go out on the weekdays! Ha! That'll mean a 2 day work week?? Well, once in a while, we all can dream and build our imaginary castles too can't we? :P

A Visitor

Lately, we've got an oriole who keeps visiting.
Its pecks on the window, flaps around outside and then sits on the window and looks in.
Hehehhe, how cute.
Its quite hard to get a pic of it flapping around coz it moves way too fast for me to grab my cam, but here's one of it sitting on my window. :)
I like its chirping, its got a very nice call. :)

Bye bye Bao bao

Bao bao is my dream cat.
Bao bao is one cute, fat cat that has a great following on Flickr and many other pet related forums here.
Bao bao has an equally cute friend called Bei bei and also has a wonderful 'daddy' who takes fabulous pictures of him.
Bao bao sadly left for the rainbow bridge on the 1st of October. [I only found out about it today :(]
It always tears me up to read about people losing their furry friends, cos I know how terrible it feels. :_( I couldn't bring myself to read more about it at the office today (can't walk around all teary eyed), so I left that for when I got back home.
Sigh, its so sad losing a furry friend, no matter how big or small they may be and my heart goes out to his loving family. :(

Illustration friday- packed

When we were kids, i remember grandpa used to buy me and my sister goldfishes which came packed in a round inflated plastic bag. :) We would both start picking out our favorite fish among the lot!

1st wedding anniversary :)

Today marks our 1st wedding anniversary! :)
Yes, its been exactly a year since we got hitched! hehe!

Made a stuffed heart-shaped felt cake for Mr D to mark the occasion! (hehehhe... too bad it can't be eaten)
and he in turn surprised me with some flowers :)

Made a felt kitty from one of the patterns in the aranzi book i got for my birthday.
Heheh, well, it doesn't really look like the one in the book, coz i decided to alter the pattern slightly. Still, quite pleased with how it turned out.
This is quite fun to make....more to come! :)

Illustration Friday-Island

On the world map we are not more than a dot so therefore we're considered as an island city. But I like to think that we're a rather green city, as there are lotsa plants/trees around, despite the dense urban jungle.
Not long ago, I chanced upon the International Year of the Reef 08 and another blog it was a great eye opener to learn so much more about the wild life habitats, flora and fauna which I never knew much about/existed on our island.

the big 30

Turned 30 over the weekend! (boy did it seem like those 20's passed in a flash!)Was it my imagination or did I feel a slight ache in my back?!! Hehe!:P
A big diff certainly was the number of candles on my cake compared to last year!

Oh well, what better way to celebrate being 30 than to celebrate it twice! :P

Had a little dinner party at home a day earlier on Saturday night. Also celebrated the mid autumn festival which fell on the same day. Maybe I should have had a moon cake as my birthday cake!

And a birthday lunch on the actual day with the hubby and mom at Island Cafe. It was good :) Even better was that we got a discount since it was my birthday! Heh!

got to blow out the 3 candles twice!

And of course, the best part about birthdays are the presents! (Stuff to make you feel better turning a year older :P)

A jimmyspa wallet and a houndstooth print vintage bag from the hubby!

A key pouch from mama! (high time for a new one)

Softies Kit from my sister! (yay!:D)

More craft books..these are by aranzi aronzo and a set of markers (more doodling!)from Sharon, Evelyn & Justin.

Thanks to everyone for all the gifts and well wishes!

Went to the annual computer fair, Comex and got crushed by the the crowds. Think at least half of the island flocks to this event to load up on the latest computer and electronic gadgets. Hmmm, a geeks paradise? :P
Normally, I would completely avoid this, but we were there to get a new computer but on the way out, we somehow left with an additional item... a Wii!! Whopee! (hm oooh, they rhyme! :P)

I'm not exactly a gadget kinda person, but this one, I like!
It allows me to not only play games, but now I can surf online using my TV. (oh dear, couch potato in the making??)

And of course, the first thing I had to try was to check out my blog on the telly! :P
What can I say, I'm going WHheeeeeeee on my wii! :P

Shokudo- Japanese Coffee House

Walked past and saw seats available so we decided to try this place for dinner at bugis.
I like looking at menus that have yummy looking desserts on it and Shokudo's menu sure looks good!

I had the curry rosti as i was looking for something softer to eat, (due to my tooth extraction 2 days before) and it turned out quite good.

Mr D had the Katsu Omu rice which was also not bad.

I enjoyed dessert best! :P I always do!! hehe, we had the tofu cheese cake. Boy, it was yummy! :)
