にちようび went back to get my $$ back credit to card. Wasted sometime as we wanted to shop at Bugis area. In the end , took the train from Somerset back to Bugis. Kids love the trains..especially the boy. Shopped at Bugis BHG / OG Albert , also i completed my Ferrari set. the 7-11 at Bugis had the remaing Ferraris ( 17-24 ) but also in limited quantity.

The mid Autumn festival also has just started. As i luv mooncakes, decided to buy some to eat too... hahahaha



Some phases i learnt this week
今何時ですか - Ima Nan Ji desu ka? / What time is it?
何時でまですか - Nan-ji made desu ka? / Until What time?
何時にもどつてきますか - Nan-ji ni modotte ki masu ka / What time are you coming back?

weekend is here again..

some rants... damm STTA issue.. that MP really cause a sore taste in all Singaporeans.. after her silly unprofessional remarks... insensitive to ppl's feeling.... oh well at least the issue is over.. its easy for her.. just say sorry...

This weekend is the start of OG 46th Anniversary. Time to change your old card if you need to. just spend $75 and get your new card...

did not go out in the afternoon as i slept thruout... from 2 pm to 5 pm... was so tired... must be the early trip to office in the morning to settle some stuffs that tired me out.

So only in the evening when the kids had their afternoon nap then we decided to drop by town and my favourite place タカシマヤ. settled the kids meal first, Rachel it seems is not having a very good appetite these couple of days. She does not finish her meal fully, and we have to always coax her to finish it. Marcus on the other hand has no problems. But every meal he insist to have noodles, which of course me and mrs turn a deaf ear to his request.





For those ppl who read my blog and luved the disney Motor series ( Mickey and Minnie ) bike, its here in singapore!!!... Avaliable at タカシマヤ. Pls grab it before it runs out... some places like OG Orchard and BHG is already out of stocks... quick before stocks run out!!!



OG Orchard was not so crowded, mrs say time for me to replace some of my old business shirts i wear to work. I say ok ... so in the end bought 3 shirts.. and after paying my stuffs etc , Totalled was $210.. changed the new OG card and then headed for home. We decided to take the bus to Clark Quay then take the return bus back home so that we are assured of a seat. Buses at 10 pm is packed as ppl are all rushing to get home. In the end , we got home at 11pm and quickly put the girl to sleep.

After the girl slept , mrs unpacked the items we bought then she screamed... the receipt was wrong. We were charged a extra $46 for the business shirt i bought. It was suppose to be 2 for $46 , in the end , it was scanned as 1 for $46... hiaz.. i did not check this.. so looks like i have to go back tomorrow morning to get back the $$.

Slippers... the kids luv to wear slippers at home ... i guess it must be due to the fact that my whole house flooring is in Marble... it tends to get cold during rainy weather .. for instance this week...

Sometimes me and mrs have to search the whole house to find the missing side of their it tends to go missing occasionally..

this coming friday is the girls 2nd birthday. how time files. Last night was reading the papers and saw that Courts JP had a offer for the Western Digital 160GB 2.5" USB drive. Only 20 sets per day, so guess what, had to go early to ensure i got it.

Got there at 930am and at 1030am, kudos to the staff of courts , when they started giving out the coupons for the items. I got mine USB drive.. and guess what number was the coupon number. Number 20!!.. the last one.


Afterthat, mrs and kids joined me for lunch at JP.. and we saw one Mediacorp Artiste having his lunch there....can you guess who it is from his back view???


i am happy that i got it at least .. so once i got home, i stripped it open and swapped in my 320GB WD 2.5 inch bought 2 weeks back and took out the 160 GB drive to swap into my MinoNote, ( so that i can install the JP version of Vista ) ...

WaterLoo Street

Today decided to go down Bugis Junction / Waterloo street temple to do some praying.. hehehe...Weather was very very sunny da...Kuan Yin Temple at water loo street was crowded, must be some upcoming occasion.

Oh well we went in quickly with the kids, offered our prayings, asked for the kids to be well and healty and to be smart.



After that we headed down to OG Albert to shop around before heading for BHG ( former Seiyu ) at Bugis. Seiyu a Wal-Mart's subsidiary (as Wal-Mart has increased its stake in the Japanese retailer to 54 per cent with an additional 67.5 billion Japanese yen or US$565 million last December)--> I did not know that Seiyu was bought/aquired over by a American company. Well anyway Seiyu in Singapore was boguht over by Beijing Hualian Group, the sixth largest commercial chain retailer of China.
This actually signifies another Japanese retailer closing its doors in singapore, now the only one would be Takashimaya left.


Had Lunch at Bugis Junction then it started raining.... the picture below reminded me of the time when we were at Shinjuku and it rained too.

Long Weekend ahead....

yeah.... strange... this morning .. my GM called and i missed his call.. called him back , he wished me a happy long weekend and to enjoy my weekend with family.... strange.. but he is a nice GM....still the call wishing me to enjoy weekend is strange....

Spent the day in town today at OG since they were having some 20% sale on, bought some tomicas and matchboxes. I received the Mini Note installations DVDs from the states delivered by DHL...



Bought a Brother Label Printer from Carrefour at Plaza Singapura. Since the boy going to start school soon, Mrs say its better to get a label printer. Ok.. since the printer was only $35.. pretty Cheap IMHO..

Marcus is 5yrs old

the boy is 5 today.. took time off from work to spend the day with the boy. Brought him to school and back. He was thrilled. Anyway he found the present on Sunday evening and he has been carrying it about the house, so excited about it. Even till he brought it to bed with him.

Today was the day. 5yrs back at 915am approx, the boy came into our world and has changed our life eversince. All the worries for him, the teaching, his first steps, his first phrase of words.

The boy was our "bao"...

I always remember the first time the boy was sick.
