I am Mrs Toh

Wedding, Xmas and Birthdays

Posted on: December 30, 2014

Gave me a shock when I received a call from Mr Toh earlier today, he was supposed to be sleeping. Turns out he got woken up by a nightmare, the poor dear. Hope I can wake him up on time later for work.

Met him yesterday at Clarke Quay as I was craving for ramen but when we passed by E!ght BBQ, I couldn’t resist so we gave it a try. Hmmmm, I liked their stew, Mr Toh hated it. We both liked the miso, garlic and red pepper paste pork though but thought the price wasn’t really worth it as it was quite pricey. $58 for 4 big, thick slices of flavoured pork, 1 stew and some side dishes. We also had their grilled squid…nothing fantastic but we liked the sauce that came with it.
早知道 we should have stick to Santouka. Oh well. Never eat never know.

Headed to Nex after that as we wanted to catch Night at the Museum but the 9:40pm show was sold out by the time we got there. Grrr…we didn’t think of booking as we forgot it was the school holidays and their next timing was only at 11:40pm which was way too late.

Saw that there was an earlier timing of 10:40pm at Seletar Mall so we headed there~~

Bought tickets and went to Starbucks to chill after that as we have their giftcard. Yay for discounted drinks! Love their chocolate drinks~

We felt that it was a sad movie. No more magic… But it was still an enjoyable show.

Also caught The Hobbit last week at Seletar Mall with Mr Toh. We never watched any of the earlier movies so we were kinda lost…lol.

After the Dragon leaves the Lonely Mountain, the people of Lake-town see a threat coming. Orcs, dwarves, elves and people prepare for war. Bilbo sees Thorin going mad and tries to help. Meanwhile, Gandalf is rescued from the Necromancer’s prison and his rescuers realize who the Necromancer is.

Battle scenes were amazing and I loved the happy ending. =X Can’t wait to start reading the books, wonder when will I be able to finish reading them.

Was Jiaxi’s birthday on Friday 26/12, we met Zhi Wei’s in laws at AMK for dinner and a small celebration. This naughty girl knew what she wanted for her presents so we knew what to get for her. It’s good this way too, at least we won’t buy stuff she won’t like. Since I was free on Xmas day, I headed to Nex and Toa Payoh Kiddy Palace to get the Robocar Poli playsets she wanted.

Happy girl upon seeing her very cute Lego cake. The toys are real, awesome cake with free toys to boot.

Happy Birthday Jiaxi! May you grow up healthy and happily, be a good girl!

Xmas Eve gathering at Dad’s place. Turkey was yum!

Baby feeling cranky as she wasn’t able to sleep with so many people in the house. =X

Loot from gift exchange with colleagues and a surprise gift from Nelly. Love the dress to bits!

Was WS’s wedding last last Sat 20/12. I was part of the bridesmaid entourage, doing a favour for my future sis-in-law. It was my first time ever, things went smoothly and we had fun~~ Mr Toh was going to send me to her place in Sengkang so he shun bian had breakfast at the McDonald’s nearby while I watched and he then headed to Dad’s place. Thanks laogong~ *muacks*

Sneaked a moment to wefie with Mr Toh in the morning after we fetched the bride!

Lovely decor by the other bridesmaid because I was late, all because of Mr Toh! =X

Their gift from his colleague.

Grumpy baby Audrey, I think she was hungry.

My handsome Mr Toh and me after the dinner~ And a photobomber Hongyi.

Lai, selfie when I got home, love my wavy, half ass curly hair. =X

Was a tiring dinner. We were seated with his eldest uncle and…….I was stressed out trying to make conversation with his family. T_T And doesn’t help that Mr Toh weren’t around a lot as he had to help out. T_T

Have been feeling under the weather for the past week…was doing housework last Sunday and ironing Mr Toh’s shirts at night when he got home and he voluntarily helped me hang the rest of the laundry knowing that I wasn’t feeling well. Aww…and I didn’t even need to ask him. So touched, knowing my lazy hubby cared for me enough to do housework. Hahaha. =D

16/12 was Mr Toh’s mummy’s death anni so we had to pray at home. I was on half day leave. Woke up early to start cooking the soup. Mr Toh woke up really early to help too. We went to Kovan to buy the roasted meats and headed home to cook the rest of the dishes and start praying. We were running a bit late and Mr Toh had to leave for work before we could burn the joss papers. So I was entrusted with the task. Thankfully, everything went smoothly. *happy*

17/12
Mr Toh was off. I had some stuff to carry home so he came to fetch me. =) We headed to Vivo to catch Exodus and do some shopping for Mr Toh. Managed to find a nice blazer for him. Went for fruit tarts after buying movie tickets.

Epic adventure Exodus: Gods and Kings is the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses, setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

Quite liked the movie and I loved Christian Bale in it!

Mr Toh felt like having Korean BBQ, managed to find 1 that was still open at that hour after some googling. Boss BarBQ at Clarke Quay. But they were not the self bbq type of joint that I was used to, the food is served cooked. While waiting to be shown in, Mr Toh casually remarked how awesome it’d be if they had a live band. After we were seated and about to order, their live band members came strolling onto the stage. So zhun!! The band, The Lost Box, was good, great lead singer. But ummmmmmm, their food really sucks. Poor Mr Toh was disappointed.
