I am Mrs Toh

K. Cook Korean BBQ was OK. I thought the meats weren’t really that nice though their spread was quite good with a few cooked dishes too.

Charlene then brought us to try llaollao! My 1st try. Damn yums and addictive! I keep craving for it but get turned off by the super long queues. T_T

Caught Mockingjay on Monday 24/11.

With the Games now destroyed and in pieces, Katniss Everdeen, along with Gale, Finnick and Beetee, now end up in the so thought “destroyed” District 13. Under the leadership of President Coin and the advice of her friends, Katniss becomes the “Mockingjay” and the symbol of rebellion for the people.

Loved it as usual! Can’t wait for part 2!

Thurs night, Mr Toh was telling me about this Hong Kong female singer on 我是歌手 which he just started watching. He was saying she’s very good and was opening a 3 nights concert in Singapore, better than Jay Chou. I didn’t know who he was talking about at first, but then realised it was Gem. Told him that I knew about her long ago but never show him her videos before as I didn’t know if he’d like her singing.

Turns out he likes her a lot after watching the show but didn’t say anything to me at first because he was also thinking maybe I won’t like her. Haha stupid 2 of us! We couldn’t help it then and bought her concert tickets for Friday together with Huiyi who came home at the right time! =D

Later that night, I was asking Huiyi how she did the collage for my wedding love contract when Mr Toh suddenly asked in a very stern voice, “怎么你问她这个?”
I was like “Huh? I am helping Huimin with hers ma.”

He then gave a relieved sigh and said, “我以为你要做多一个给我。” LOL. So funny my Mr Toh. You think people eat too free ah, bo taiji do another one for what!

Sun 30/11
Had sisters meeting with Huimin at PS in the afternoon so I decided to check out Fitness First at The Cathay before that. I find it really small. Also, unfriendly receptionist, over friendly trainer. Not going back to that branch again. I also realised that so far, only the branch at 100am provides T-shirts and shorts.

Met Mr Toh for Rise of Legends at Nex!


[Source]

In Qing dynasty Guangzhou, two gangs Black Tiger and Northern Sea are battling for power. Young martial arts practitioner Fei (Eddie Peng) joins Black Tiger and is adopted by the gang’s leader (Sammo Hung) as his fourth son. Meanwhile, Fei’s childhood friends Fiery (Jing Boran) and Chun (Wang Luodan) are leading a new group called The Orphans, who are trying to destroy the evil gangs once and for all. – See more at: http://www.straitstimes.com/lifestyle/movies/story/eddie-peng-well-cast-rise-the-legend-20141126#sthash.vJDuiRnt.dpuf

Eddie Peng is freaking hot!! Well casted, I like! Lots of half naked shots of him showing his well defined muscles. He is SO my type! HAHA. Really awesome fight scenes though storyline is a bit weird cause he’s an undercover gangster but Wong Fei Hung is supposed to be this really righteous man. But still quite an enjoyable show.

We then met Daniel for supper at RK Eating House. Prata was cold. 😦 Next time will not go on a Monday.

Wed 3/12
Met Mr Toh at his shop and we went for movie again! Saw the trailer and thought it was quite funny. Women Who Flirt – 撒娇女人最好命


[Source]

Most women know that flirting can sometimes be the most effective way to get what they want, especially when it comes to men. However, flirting is an art that takes talent, and isn’t so easy to come by for some… Zhang Hui (Zhou Xun) has a crush on her fellow classmate, Xiao Gong (Huang Xiaoming). However, family pressure to succeed forces him to focus more on his studies rather than relationships, delegating Zhang Hui to the role of “just – friends”. But Zhang Hui doesn’t give up that easily. After graduation she finds work in Shanghai in order to stay close to Xiao Gong. Matters are complicated, however, when Xiao Gong returns from a business trip to Taiwan with a new girlfriend, Bei Bei. Unable to admit defeat, Zhang Hui seeks the help from a college classmate and her group of friends that have mastered the art of flirting. Overnight, Zhang Hui’s appearance, demeanor, and silks of seduction improve dramatically. As Xiao Gong begins to take notice, their relationship begins to ..

Good show! Freaking funny. Super strong cast with superb acting! We are fans of Zhou Xun now. She is freaking awesome lah, as well as Huang Xiaoming and Sui Tang too! Maybe some people will find some parts lame but I thought the whole movie was pretty funny. We went to RK for supper again. Fat die meeee! But at least the prata this time was nice!

Thurs 4/12
Mr Toh was on reservist. Bought dinner back home for him and Mum because he was tired~

Fri 5/12
Company Xmas dinner at Pan Pacific, Edge. Food was pretty good! UOB card holders have 10% discount. Price/pax was $88++ if I remember correctly.

Sat 6/12
Gym time = me time. Went shopping at Tampines after that, needed to buy a new pair of heels but did not see any nice ones. 3 shopping malls and not 1 pair. Tsk. =X

Sun 7/12
Met Mr Toh after his work and he asked if I wanted to eat something that we’ve not eaten in a while so……it’s 126 time! Yums.

Mon 8/12
Mr Toh’s off day! Planned for Horrible Bosses at 9:30pm. He was meeting his brothers before that so I had some me time. Was having my dinner at Nex when he reached. We had some time before movie so we did a little shopping. With Mr Toh’s help, I managed to find a nice pair of nude wedges. Wee~~ So pathetic now that I do not have a single wearable pair of heels for functions. =X Bought this just in time for a wedding dinner this Friday. =D

Been busy doing my Christmas shopping online. Hiak hiak hiak.
This year, the trend is to say out your wishlist. Lol. But I bought their stuff before they said anything so…I hope everyone will like their gifts.

Time really flies. In the blink of an eye, 2/3 of November has passed!

03/11 (Monday)
Mr Toh’s off day~~ I met him at Dhoby Ghaut and we headed to Shaw Lido to catch John Wick which XM recommended.
We had dinner at Watami at Ion before that because Itacho’s queue was too long. The food was ok at Watami, the Caesar salad and their grilled pork skewer was nice. Salmon sushi was not bad too.
John Wick was good, lotsa action and pretty good acting by Keanu Reeves.

04/11 (Tuesday)
Mr Toh met me at Vivocity and we decided to have dinner at Shin Kushiya. What a bad decision. Their food was so salty! We feedback to the staff and his response was that the food is supposed to be prepared that way. Pls leh, you want to give your customers kidney problems?? WTF you mean by the food is supposed to be salty. Stupid answer.
Anyway, the meal costs us $70+, super not worth it! We could have lots more satisfaction at Itacho!! Why isn’t there an Itacho at Vivo?! =X

We then headed to Mustafa to check out handphones. Nothing caught my eye but Mr Toh saw a red HTC One E8 that he liked. The color is really pretty, I saw a deal online but the red set costs $120 more than the black one. Mr Toh ended up settling for the black one as he couldn’t justify the $120.

05/11 (Wednesday)
Met Mr Toh after his work to catch Sifu vs Vampires at Nex.

Helped Mr Toh order his handphone on Lazada from this seller Kile.

They are damn efficient!! I ordered on 06/11 night, phone was packed on 08/11 morning and shipped on 09/11 and I received it in the office the next morning! Amazing service.

08/11 (Saturday)
I went to the gym at Tampines to attend the hot yoga class! Tampines much nearer and the timing is more suitable than the Tanjong Pagar branch. The gym at Tampines is so much bigger but less atas than Tanjong Pagar, but still had a good experience here. =)

09/11 (Sunday)
Mr Toh’s off day! ❤
We went to Punggol Settlement for brunch! Tried out Bacon & Booze but hmmm, food and service not up to our standard. Mr Toh was so happy at first to see that they had croissants on their menu but it was not available. Tsk. We ended up sharing a breakfast platter, we felt that none of the items were really delicious. Their Nutella milkshake was awesome though. While waiting for the bus later on, we saw Li Nanxing! I almost gathered up my courage to ask him for a photo but decided not to in the end as he was in a break from filming and the weather was so freaking hot, he just looked very poor thing lah.

We went back home to rest and Mr Toh headed out at 4pm to celebrate his colleague's birthday while I stayed home to prepare myself to attend Corine's wedding at Novotel! Was contemplating taking the MRT there was it was at Clarke Quay only but Mr Toh was very sweet, he passed me some cash and asked me to take a cab there. His reasoning was that, I would be all dolled up and if I take the MRT, I could end up being a sweaty mess by the time I get there. Heehee. Thankful that he is so thoughtful. =) Had an enjoyable time at the dinner, loved seeing her gowns, very pretty and Korean style! Congratulations to Corine & her husband, wishing them a lifetime of everlasting bliss.

13/11 (Thursday)
Mr Toh was off and he had a craving for bak chor mee. Specifically the stall that used to be at Marina Square. So I ended up meeting him at Lavender for the Hill Street Tai Hwa Bak Chor Mee. Damn yums. We realised the $6 portion is too small for Mr Toh. Next time must add noodles.
Then headed to Dhoby Ghaut to try to find screen protector for his E8 but the shops were closing already. *oops*
We then met Daniel for dim sum at 126. Goodness. Really is fat die me. Lol.
It ended up raining when we were finishing eating……and we had to accompany Daniel to wait for the rain to be smaller before he could leave on his motorbike.

15/11 (Saturday)
Went to the gym again for yoga! Then headed to Kovan to try out the scalp treatment at Bee Choo Origins. Hmm…not much comment for the scalp treatment as I've only done it once. Still thinking if I should go back again.

16/11 (Sunday)
Mr Toh's off day again! Wee! I love it when he has weekends off.
I asked Mr Toh if he wanted to try a $4 million charsiew recipe. He was game for it but we were sorely disappointed. Char siew is ok, fatty parts were yum. But honestly, yummy fatty char siew is quite easy to find. The roasted meat was damn blah, like chewing cardboard. And the rice! Worst item on the plate, so dry and tasteless. We think Bedok Cooked Food at Kovan hawker tastes much better overall. I think Aztech Group kena con.

Cabbed over to Queensway Shopping Center after that. I managed to find a really cute sized and functional deuter gym bag that comes with a built in shoe compartment. I also bought a smaller sized Camelbak eddy water bottle, it's really cute! We have the Camelbak water bottle in a bigger size which is perfect when cycling long distances outdoor but I find it too bulky to bring to the gym.

After that, we went to Ikea to walk around and we saw the Billy bookshelves that could work in our study room, so am in the midst of planning~~
We had our dinner at Ikea and cabbed home after that because I was feeling under the weather. Had a bit of flu and cough, thankfully I recovered in a few days time.

In other news, I bought myself a new phone too! The camera on the old phone was busted and I couldn't stand not having a camera. After days of research, I finally decided on the ZTE Nubia Z7 Max. Also bought it on Lazada from T-Dimension. I bought it at only S$379!

They are slightly slower but I supposed I was spoiled by the efficiency of Kile. Lol. Ordered on 14/11 and received the phone on 19/11. Also very fast! Very pleased with the phone~~~ Ordered the casing on Taobao, can’t wait to receive it! Then went down to adix82 mobile shop at Burlington Square as I saw on hardwarezone that he has the tempered glass screen protector. The phone came rooted and with a screen protector already but the fingerprints on it were too horrible! So I decided to change it. =)

Meeting my girls later tonight for K. Cook Korean BBQ for Charlene’s belated birthday~~ Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long. I cannot wait!

My hair’s getting so long…last rebonded it a month ago at the salon, Hair Lab behind our home. Spent about $200, which I thought was reasonable. I quite like the effect but the lady was very rough when washing and drying my hair…so…probably will think twice about patronising them in future.

Been 3 weeks since my 4th Datsumo Labo appointment and the hairs are much thinner now. Cannot wait to see the results after 6 sessions~~

Supper on Sunday after Mr Toh’s work. One of our fave ba chor mee from Kovan~

Mr Toh wearing matching uniforms with the mooncake carriers when we were heading out to Godma and Godpa’s house. HAHAHA.

Woke up early on Sat 06/09 and went out with Mr Toh who went to work while I went to Ngee Ann City armed with Mr Toh’s credit card to see if I could get Goodwood Park’s Mao Shan Wang mooncakes~ Sampled a few durian mooncakes but none really wowed me. So, when Goodwood Park’s sales assistant told me there was stock for their Mao Shan Wang, I did not hesitate and bought 2!

Love the design of the cooler bag~

Pleased with my buy, I went to Coffee Bean bistro for breakfast~~ Pretty yummy.

On the way home, I was chatting with Mr Toh on the phone while walking through Wisma Atria and was so tempted by Famous Amos and some of the other stores. Mr Toh kan cheong sia…and asked me not to be rash. LOL.

Went back to Dad’s home for dinner that night. Mr Toh was unable to join us as he was working. We decided to catch a movie together with his brothers after dinner instead.

Decided to watch the latest part of the Step Up series at Nex.


[Source]

Sean brings his dance crew known as The Mob to Los Angeles to try and make it. But they haven’t had much luck, eventually the Mob decides it’s time to go back to Miami but Sean decides to stay. He learns of a dance competition is Las Vegas wherein the winner will get a three year contract. Sean needs a new crew so he asks fellow dancer Moose for help. And Moose introduces him to Andie, another friend and dancer who got injured a few years ago and is now ready to get back in. He recruits some other friends and they head Las Vegas as Lmmental. When they get there, they discover that the Mob too is also there, which is very touchy for Sean.

Ummmm. I’m kinda getting sick of this series. Doesn’t help that the male lead is not memorable at all and I don’t like the way the female lead dances. Overheard some patrons mentioning that the poster looked like it had been Photoshopped heavily. =X
I also thought their dialogue were really cheesy.
Anyway, the dance scenes were still amazing, that’s the one good thing. Second good thing was Moose!!! He has matured and I think he is SO good looking and buff now! *swoon*

Lots of mooncakes this year! Mr Toh ordered the Teochew yam mooncakes for everyone, they tasted really good the first few days. After we kept them in the fridge and reheated, they were too hard…. T_T Must remember to eat them fast next year!

Then Eric gave us a box each of cheese mooncakes from The Bakery Chef! They were not bad, rather special flavours.

Treat from Daphne, beautiful pastel rainbow cake from The Bakery Chef too.

Gift from a customer all the way from Klang. These were awesoooommmee! First time trying them and they were all melty and yummy!

Mr Toh was off on Sat 13/09 so we went to the hospital to visit Nelly and Audrey.

We were thinking what to eat for lunch when I suggested to eat at Novena. Mr Toh gave me a wtf look. He was thinking, “I’m so hungry already, still have to wait till we get to Novena to eat?!” Then he was enlightened and looked at me and said “BOM”. Precisely. A bit slow but great minds think alike! We were thinking of having the volcano ramen for lunch! Hiak hiak.

While waiting for the food. Mr Toh busy playing Heroes Charge. The game is fun!
 photo IMG_20140913_132450.jpg

Food was good but we thought the standard had dropped.
 photo IMG_20140913_132756_1.jpg

Audrey’s the newest addition to our family! The first female baby for 2 generations! She’s gonna be soooo spoiled by us! Am already thinking what to buy for her when I go to Taiwan in October. =X

We bought a floral basket with bird’s nest for Nelly and a baby Piglet doll for Audrey.

Soooo cute!!
Mr Toh says this is so she will remember him. Yup, the uncle who’s born in the year of the Pig aka Uncle Pig. =X
 photo IMG_20140913_153919_1.jpg

Headed to Hougang after that to have dinner with my family as mum was giving us a treat, thanks to her $500 lottery win. Woohoo~~~

Sunday was catch up on housework and ironing day.

Reached home yesterday and worked out. Been a while since I’ve worked out due to being sick.

The workout I usually do. Really like Jillian Michael’s videos.

[Source]

But wanted to try something different yesterday.

[Source]

Don’t think it was that high intensity but I sweated like mad, shows just how unfit I am. T_T

 photo a.jpg

Felt sooo good to sweat it all out. Am going to continue working out today. Go me!

Hiatus

Posted on: July 2, 2014

 photo IMG_20140701_202340.jpg

Finally back to the mat after a long hiatus of laziness. There was also that one time I sprained my ankle doing Shaun T’s T25 workout. I’ve since decided that was not for me because I didn’t have a suitable pair of shoes and my only pair of running shoes have been retired. Heh.

Yoga is the way for me. I chanced upon Jillian Michael’s Yoga Meltdown video on Youtube and it was great. Easy enough for me to follow and yet tough enough to have me sweating at the end of the workout.

Been diligently exercising at least 3 times a week for 2 weeks now. Hope to keep this up! Go me!

Been super lazy over the weekend but still managed to finish my to do list on Sat. The first thing Mr Toh said when he came home was “Wah, laopo mopped the floor today? So clean!” or something like that.

Heh. Really love it when he appreciates the effort I put in. But also makes me wonder if the floor was really that dirty before for him to notice. O.O I just can’t win. *shakes head*

Slept till 3pm on both days, damn shiok. Woke up on Sunday and was reading this book on my Kindle for the whole day until I realised I finished it when Mr Toh came home. Wow. 1 book in 1 day. Been a while since I’ve done that.

Seriously. I love my Kindle! Can’t stop raving about it! After the latest update, even the font size can be controlled and the page will automatically adjust. I’ve learnt that can’t be done with PDF formats though. The sides will be cut off and I’d have to scroll the page from left to right, so idiotic.
Got to remember to use mobi format as it works great so far.

Am on a serious Game of Thrones withdrawal now as I’ve finished all 5 books and season 4 of the TV series.

Can’t wait for season 5! George, pls finish book 6 soon, we’re waiting with bated breath!

Met up with the family at Nex yesterday for sis-in-law’s birthday dinner at Fish & Co. Minus Mr Toh who was working. Had a yummy dinner! Met Mr Toh after that for him to eat as the poor thing didn’t have time for dinner.

Went to Vivo earlier that day during lunch to buy a present for her. We jointly decided to get a wireless headphone as she’s been exercising and to encourage her to keep up the good work!

Saw a few models at Best Denki and took a few pictures to show Huiyi and Mr Toh. Then I realised…..they were not wireless. Tsk. Am I blind or what??

Went to Challenger to take a look but they have only 1 model. One. Pathetic.

Went back to Best Denki wanting to ask their staff but couldn’t find anyone… *sigh* Ended up finding what I wanted myself. Yay!

Jabra Sport Wireless headset for $148.

Looks very chio! Hope she likes it!
Now Mr Toh is thinking of buying one too for using while cycling. I support!

Went to Soup Spoon to buy clam chowder for lunch with a side of Carl’s Jr criss cut fries. Yummy!

Attended a colleague’s wedding in JB on Sat (14/06). Congrats again to Gill & her hubby! Food was good though the journey to and fro was really tiring because of the damn long queues. Luckily we had Weiliang who fetched us. Thanks for bringing us to have the yummy kway chup too!

What to do at weddings?

Selfies!

Wearing the $9 necklace Mr Toh bought for me from Taka. Super pretty in real life, doesn’t look like $9 at all!

我能想到最浪漫的事
就是和你一起慢慢变老
一路上收藏点点滴滴的欢笑
留到以后 坐着摇椅 慢慢聊
我能想到最浪漫的事
就是和你一起慢慢变老
直到我们老的哪儿也去不了
你还依然 把我当成 手心里的宝

Watched Edge of Tomorrow last Tues (10/6) with Mr Toh after my Datsumo Labo appointment. It’s good! Thought it was quite funny and well written. The first 10 mins or so were quite boring but once the action started, I was super awake and was kept guessing why did he keep going back to the same day. Loved it!

As previously mentioned, Mr Toh had originally bought a Kindle Paperwhite for my birthday last year but Japan Amazon cancelled his order.
Last Thurs (12/6), I saw it selling on Qoo! Mr Toh decided to get it for me~~ We ordered and paid for it on 12/06 and it was delivered to my office on Mon 16/06! I thought that was quite fast!

Yay to more comfortable reading! No more too bright screen and tiny ass font size. Also yay to no more lugging around heavy books even though I love the feel of real books.
The Kindle is a little smaller than what I expected cause I didn’t check the dimensions lah but I love that it’s so compact! It’s light too, only about 220grams.

Bought the cover together at $19.90. This was described as Peach Red but it looked pink in the photos so I gave it a gamble. It turned out to be a really gorgeous shade of pink! Maximum love pls!

Really loving my new gadget! I have about 60 books stored in it now and it doesn’t even take up 1GB of space! Awesome pls!!!
I would highly recommend it!!

Mr Toh bought it for me because he was thinking of my eyes. He kept saying how my eyesight is going to get worse from reading so much on my phone because of the bright screen and small font size.

Feeling very loved and blessed. Thank you to my dearest Mr Toh. I love you to the moon and back, even beyond! =*)

Been taking Lifepak for 2 weeks now…and I can significantly see an improvement! Taking it because of Mr Toh who recommended it to me.

 photo 20140312_082626.jpg

4 capsules. T_T I dreaded taking it initally because I hate to take pills. But surprisingly, I find them rather easy to swallow.

It’s only been a while but I no longer feel so lethargic during work, especially after lunch, even when I’ve eaten a heavy lunch of chicken rice.

I can’t wait to see more of its effects. Better skin, better hair pls! Pls also improve my dry cracked heels! Mr Toh said it was really effective for his mummy.

Met Mr Toh at Tampines yesterday after he reported back at camp. Went for dinner at Mos and their Red Grilled Chicken burger sucks……….the meat was so tough and tasteless. Regretted not ordering my usual fish burger! =(

Was sulking about it to Mr Toh and he asked what else I wanted to eat. Bought Paris Baguette royal pudding home to eat in the end! Love Mr Toh for always indulging me~~ Hehe.

Wanted to lose a little weight and tone my body and I found out about this T25 workout. Initially wanted to try the Insanity workout but I find it hard to squeeze 1 hr out every day. 25 minutes is much more manageable.

Been doing it for 2 days previously and my whole body was so sore, especially my calves! T_T But it’s a super good workout. It may only be 25 minutes, but it is insane how much I sweat after it! Damn shiok!
I hope to persevere and get a decent body before we go Phuket at the end of the month!!

Baked potato wedges for dinner on Sunday after my workout. Just need salt, pepper and minced garlic and bake for 30 minutes (turn over halfway at 20 mins).

And ta-daaaa~! Looks good right?~ Tastes pretty good too if I may say so myself. xD

 photo 20140309_200903.jpg

Good to know that I am practicing a few of these…

Namely #2, all thanks to moving into our new home and Mummy for cooking sometimes, especially during weekdays.

#3 because if I don’t eat breakfast, I will faint from hunger~ Got very bored of eating the breakfast from the coffeeshops, thankfully we have our own home and kitchen now, I can bring my own sandwiches and cereal!

#5, but been a while since I’ve went. Oops. *guilty* Need to get back in the routine.

 photo a.png
[Source]

But still got to work harder and maintain so as not to gain any more weight! Also need to start doing #6, #9 and #10 more~~

By the way, I am looking for something like this…but just can’t find it in Singapore. I suppose I can order from Amazon and use Vpost but am afraid of the high shipping rates… How sia…? Hais.
