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.

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…

Mo Dan / 伤寒症

My mum was worried about the persistent on & off fever that I had for the past few days. She had suspected that it may be Mo Dan or 伤寒症 that she decided to accompany me to see a Chinese physican as she said that some people have became paralysed due to the body that was overheated

An interesting test was conducted by my mum to check whether I had the above illness. She used a boiled egg & rubbed against my back. After that she peeled away the egg white and saw the egg yolk had little spots on it. This is a postive test for Mo Dan.

The Chinese physician advised me to stop all my medication except for the antibiotics and asked me to drink his medicine like my supply of plain water. The chinese physician was spot on about my condition after feeling my pulse. It was ok on the outside & feverish in my body.

The physician prescribed me with 2 packets of medication, to be taken on a 2 hr basis for today & tomorrow. I guess I will be back to office tomorrow. The only food that I …

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.
