Oh Geez, I can't believe time flies so fast! I was so busy I didn't really have time to update my blog until like now? 14 February 2010, and here I am, sitting at home update "December 2009"'s stuff...

01 December 2009 @ Arab Street~
What else would I be there for? Zam Zam's roti prata of course!

Dad was heading into Kalimantan Timor again, and so we bought like a few dozens of these oily pratas for him to 'ta-bao' in~ 02 December 2009
Getting a trim at QB house~ probably the best commercial inventions this decade. ^^
03 December 2009
Giants Hypermart~ I've been there so often I knew exactly where most stuff are located... just like IKEA...
04 December 2009
Accident along Fort Canning Road... Had my headlights and front bumper dented...
But the other fella had it worse~
That bloody farker (ahem, pardon the vulgarities) reversed his car out of the parking lot butt first without checking on-coming traffic on the driveway and rammed right into my car.
Was a 30 year old bespectable arsehole. Got his friends over as backup (apparently just ended a gathering nearby).
Minor accident gained me valuable experience~
The bugger ended up refusing to admit that it was his mistake and even attempted to declare that both parties are at fault~
His car plate is SGR 8556 H~ a Dark Blue Toyota Axio~ and his bunch of friends who came to his aid were siding him and adding pepper and salt here and there~05 December 2009
First thing in the morning was to make a trip down to IDAC (Independent Damage Assessment Centre) at Kaki Bukit~ Wrote down my report and decided to claim that bloody arsehole's insurance... One good information I got off the IDAC lady was that the SGR 8556 H had several previous cases of accident too.
IDAC recommended over a so-called "Comfort appointed Workshop" and they loaned me this Toyota Vios as they drove off my car to their Defu Lane workshop. But I tell you, that so called "Comfort Appointed" workshop is also a crappy one. Shady workshop boss who quoted me the repairs fees without an official letterhead.
I was aware of the market price and knew immediately that the repair fees were ridiculous. But I went ahead anyways because its not a matter of PRICE, but a matter of TIME. I needed the repairs done ASAP.
By the way, the workshop boss called me up the same day saying that the SGR 8556 H driver lodged his side of the report stating that the collision was like "He was trying to park his car (Head-in) and I rammed into him from behind". Wow. I applauded.
07 December 2009 @ KK Hospital~
I suppose any guys / men will be extremely anxious being at this place... its the place where most men "level-up" into the rank called "Father".
But it wasn't like what you think~ I accompanied my darling here for an ultra-scan only~ ^^
Headed over to Jalan Berseh for Laksa for lunch~! Yummy!
Strolled down Orchard Road on a weekday~ what a luxury~
Couple of new shopping malls sprouted up like mushrooms~
Tea break at ToastBox~
Lacoste apparels... When you run out of ideas, just repeat the logo / emblem several things and twist it around and voila~! You got another design~
I couldn't help laughing~
Right outside Takashimaya~ I almost fainted seeing this...
Finally ended the Orchard stroll at ION... I think people can get lost here...
Dinner at a Chinese restaurant inside ION... forgot the name~
09 December 2009 @ City Square Mall~
Was in town to run some errands...
Came to Jalan Berseh to inspect some goods...
Topping up at the Petrol station before home...
10 December 2009
At the local community centre collecting the 2010 phonebook~
Definitely delicious~ but I forgot where I had this... ^^||
Evening at Raffles City~ meeting up a University Classmate~ ended up at Burger Kings instead... budget budget~
11 December 2009
Took mum to Chinatown~
Ann Chin~ its a Popiah Stall situated at the Smith Street Hawker Centre~ reportedly so good that business was busy~ Uncle bakes the Popiah skin on-the-spot~ its pretty interesting seeing him swirl the dough on one hand, smears the dough onto the hotplate, and scrapes the hardened popiah skin off onto a huge stack with the other hand~
my Food-Critic verdict for this stall = "So So only lah~"
If you are ever at the Smith Street Hawker Centre, you got to try this stall's Char Kway Teow~ Then you will truly understand what it means to eat "Orh See You Kway Teow" (Kway Teow with Black Sauce" - Totally no taste of the "Fried" smell~ EPIC FAIL.
3:13pm~ Shopping at OG~ as usual~ purchase of over a certain amount entitles customers to redeem an Oyster~
Service staff will open up the oyster on-the-spot ...
and out came a PEARL~! ^^
12 December 2009
@ JB hair salon~ went there for very cheap hair wash and the "too-friendly" stylist re-do my hair so badly... I TOTALLY HATE IT, but I enjoyed the little fun~ ^^
Spent the rest of the day shopping and eating~
14 December 2009
At Chinatown again~ Thumbs up for their food~
Love the pasar malum at Chinatown~ ^^
At City Square Mall's popular bookstore~ choosing a 2010 calendar diary for my darling~
15 December 2009
At City Square Mall again~ tea break time~ Fried Carrot Cake with Kopi~
16 December 2009
At IMM's Ajisen Ramen for lunch~
I love Japanese Food, and I have very high expectations of them. I've definitely eaten authentic Japanese Ramen (in Japan)... whatever they are selling at Ajisen compared to the price they are selling at, is VERY REASONABLE. Read: You pay for what you eat. With S$10.00 a bowl, its CRAP Ramen. I'd rather cook instant noodles and it would have tasted better.
2:01pm~ well since I was in IMM, its unavoidable that I have to drop by Daiso for some impulse purchase training.
17 December 2009
At Lorong Halus~ (aka. Pasir Ris Farmway)... Dog lovers would love this information...
With all those Pet craze picking up these few years... several near-your-home Pet retail shops sprouted up... like Pet Safari, Ericsson Pet Farm, etc... and so Puppies were sold for like +/- $1500 so on and so forth...
What many didn't know, is that you can actually get them cheaply at Lorong Halus... walk in and search for these rows of little houses...They are called Kennel~ some 12 houses of them... Puppies could range from S$450 and up~but that was like 2 years back...
I was here again this time round~ and was surprised to see that some of the "big names' has taken over the area...
so a tiny Chihuahua like this was quoted to me for S$800+. Then again, prices here are not fixed, as when I brought my friend's sister over, they quoted her S$900+. (oh the little Dachshund on the right was going for S$690). ^^ Please be a responsible pet owner and consider 10 times before taking one home.
18 December 2009 @ Kallang Leisure~
There to pick up my Nendoroid~ Akiyama Mio of K-ON~!

7:06pm~ Girlfriend made delicious dinner for me~! 10 stars out of 10 stars~21 December 2009
Retrieved some goods from my supplier and planning to have them delivered to my forwarder the next day...
These are Hydraulic Cylinders, and each weights about 27Kg~ its like carrying a 6 years old kid...
22 December 2009
Grocery shopping with mum at NTUC~
this is probably my favourite section~
Korean strawberries are a thumbs up~
24 December 2009
At Marina Square... there is this toy shop right outside the Marina GV... Being a Nendoroid collector myself... one look and I can tell that these are NOT AUTHENTIC stuff... I didn't say they're fake~ but I know they are NOT AUTHENTIC... I compare the paintworks with mine and I know mine definitely has far superior paintworks and workmanship than any of these here... Tip: Authentic Nendoroids have a more "Matt" paintwork... if yours is glossy, its probably fake.Since they are already selling Nendoroids that I think are "NOT AUTHENTIC" here, I dunno whether the rest of the toys here are good stuff or inferior goods.... I leave it to customers to decide for themselves...
Girlfriend bought me a logcake~ how sweet~!
25 December 2009
Its Christmas day! At Katong for Laksa~ ^^

2:08pm~ headed to another furniture shop... mum was trying to get her bed replaced after sleeping on it for the past 20 over years...
3:00pm~ we ended up at Courts... and made the purchase here...
6:36pm~ @ Chomp Chomps~ Egg Tofu~! Love it~!
8:03pm~ If I could recall... I was at PS Carrefour... sign reads "For emergency use. Please do not block this Area. Disciplinary action will be .... by store manager". So its blocked... and even if its not blocked... what happens during emergency? This little hole here is meant for people to escape through?
