Chinese New Year is coming! Can you feel the heat? No no i mean.. the busyness.. visiting relatives, friends, having fun, collecting or giving angbaos.. etc 😀
This year, I made the exception to drop by Chinatown during this busy festive eve period and take some landscape shots. Having said that, I have not gone to Chinatown for many years only unless I am passing by from one place to another. Below are the few shots that I have taken and I hope to share with you guys! Scouring the busy streets in the warm climate is not fun, but as long as I managed to get some pretty shots, i feel my trip there is worthwhile. 🙂
#1 Did u notice the speck of rainbow surrounding the moon? It was so beautiful but this pix might not have captivated its total beauty..
#2 This shot captured my attention so much I was thinking it did not look any part like I took this in my home country!
#3 the lanterns are pretty..
#4 The bustling chinatown
#5 I cannot imagine how long the snake is but that’s a part of its body.. made up of lanterns.
#6 First time trying to capture busy traffic at night.. Absolutely love the light trails!
#7 On a bridge that has no one else
How did you find the pictures above? Drop me your thoughts.. I’d love to hear from yOu!
This is another song by 2NE1 – a famous kpop girl band that I wanna share. Like how the song turns out well, the impressive vocals by Bom and CL, i think besides their beautiful makeup-ed faces, they do have a talent at singing or dancing. Besides that, I can’t quite confirm if I could relate to this song ever since i decided to be independent once again, knocking on singlehood’s door. But I can definitely confirm that without Dara, i wouldn’t have notice this kpop girl group. 😛
What I have been doing…
Today for the longest time, it has been raining. A good reason to stay home and get a really good rest. But on the other hand, it disrupted my plan to get myself down for a jog or swim! Ok well, i meant half when i mention swim as I am pretty lazy to go to the nearest swimming complex anytime.
Yesterday for the first time in 2013, i cleared a day’s leave to de-stress and to do some shopping in town. I stepped into Zara and I knew i will always buy something from there – it is in the ‘season’ of SALE too. I was only annoyed by the long Q at the fitting room! Holding the stuff that I wanted to buy, i considered.. and i resisted and stepped out of Zara – unaccomplished! Hahas.. I have to control my spending now as I am already planning my next short holiday getaway in March. LOL 😀
Typing this entry now at 23:09, i do have alot to share but of most are the usual daily duties, I had to fulfil as a daughter, employee, child of God, friend, colleague, etc. Before this entry goes from exciting to most boring and dry haha.. i will put a stop to it first. Updates when I have more. 😛

This song has been playing on my head a few days.. quite catchy tune.. so just thought of sharing 🙂
Also this song make me notice Dara, one of the member in this group 2NE1. She has got me attracted to her hairstyle..!
On a side note, just want to say that I haven’t forgotten my blog/ readers here! Just not as fluent and chatty as before in my previous blogs.. as I have sort of outgrown the blogging ‘kick’. And as I am typing here, I am coughing away and it has been ongoing for a week! I woke up this morning and in the midnight with a burning throat, felt so irritated that I cannot do anything with the cough/itch and all I can do is to cough to ease the itch!
Oh btw, HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013!! I hope everyone had a blast during this festive season. 😉
I had a good dinner with my family on Christmas day at Orchard Central at this Japanese Buffet style restaurant.. we had sort of observe this ‘tradition’, thanks to my momo. 😀
Joined my girlfriends for a night stay in a suite at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport on the 29th Dec and our request for late afternoon check out was also granted! Thanks to J for this upgraded stay lobang.
Last before I sign off, I wish for happiness, good health, forgiveness for my family, friends and you.. yes you who are reading this right now for this new year
