1st Birthday Celebration In Birthday Month

It was supposed to be a birthday celebration with 4 ladies from my IRAS Volunteer friends and Grassroots Leaders friends, but Angela & Kerlyn are having their exams so it ended up with a simple celebration with me, Xiuling & Wendy.


Dinner was at Jack’s Place at Nex at the suggestion of the birthday gal. The Oreo cheesecake was at the request of the birthday gal, which I got it at Four Leaves.

I felt that the standard of service at the Jack’s Place at Nex needs to be improved as we had to call for our cake to be served at least twice. When Wendy had to call the service staff for the 3rd time, we were already rushing the movie and had to rush through the cake cutting until we forgotten about taking photos of the cake cutting.

The standard of the desert has also dropped. It makes me wonder if I want to try Jack’s Place next time.

After the dinner, it was time for movie. Since there was no “Cold War” showing at Nex, we decided to catch the animated film, Rise of The Guardians as I know that the ladies love animation films. I personally feel that the movie is nice, worth my time to go to the cinema in the morning to get the tickets at discounted price.

After the movie, Wendy, Xiuling & myself went to the MacDonald’s, where we got our birthday gift, Capitalland Voucher from Angela, Kerlyn, Xiuling. I would like to thank the 4 ladies for the gift. As I did not know what I wanted in the first place, and I know that most of them are not well remunerated,  I did not dare to ask for an expensive present.

An Update To The Walking Bus Guide

I decided to clear my mind of the work troubles that I decided to take the bus and update my bus routes knowledge with the recent amendments to some of the bus services in the area that I am staying in and the transition to the Bus Contracting Model, where LTA is now the central route planner of the bus routes.
Here are the list of updated bus routes that I have known since my last post about this in 2014.

My Hosting Script for The National Day Event

I just managed to work out the draft hosting script for the National Day Event I am hosting. I am thankful for all the comments that I have received from my fellow RC members and friends.
Just feel that sometimes, no matter whatever you do, some people, no matter for what reasons, will not be happy with the arrangements. I just wish to say that I am already trying my best to try to get this event going, considering the fact, that this is the 1st time I am organising an RC event. I have also tried my best, despite the fact that I would like to have a free hand to organise the event, just like what I usually do for the KTV events I have on Facebook, I accommodated to the requests that I should somehow follow the past years’ format to do the event. I know that I am not very familiar with how things are run at the RC, therefore in the end, my organising committee only made some changes to the event as we had a limited budget to work on. I even volunteered myself to do the hosting for the e…

Pantang- Meaning Things Not To Do In Hokkien

There are certain things which some Chinese are pretty particular with:- Happy and sad events can't clash together within 100 days to a year. If a relative or loved one were to pass away, the immediate family member can't attend a happy event, like wedding & housewarming.The Teochews treat their eldest male grandchild as their youngest son. If you are getting married & your friend who is getting married invites you to his wedding, u are not allowed to attend. The old people say happy events clash.The red packet can't be given twice for a happy event. Likewise for the condolence packet.One should not give shoes or lamp to a birthday boy or gal, as it is believed that you may bring the person to his deathbed.These are some interesting stuff to share, especially to some blog readers who are not living in a place filled with Chinese.
