How We Celebrated Calvin’s 26th Birthday!

November 24, 2010

It’s a month since I last blogged! Sheesh.. time really flies! October was a really eventful month and I wish to thank everyone to helped us out at our first event, Accelerated Blogging Profits as well as all participants who came down in full force to join us on a Saturday. πŸ™‚

And also thanks to everyone’s well-wishes to my bf,Β Calvin Woon on his birthday last Saturday! November’s always the period where I usually panic one week before his birthday, trying to figure out how to celebrate his birthday. Β This year I badly wanted to surprise him in one way or another because it’s always nice to have something to remember a birthday celebration! Well, you won’t be 26 again, will you?

So anyway, Calvin’s a person who’s a workaholic (yes, you saw it right) so I wanted him to relax completely on his birthday.

Surprise #1 (Success!): Calvin loves Baileys and Chelsea. Haha.. Yes, he’s a HUGE Chelsea club fan. So, I tried looking for a bakery which made custom cakes – Chelsea jersey + Baileys cake flavor? That’s quite ambitious don’t you think? Haha.. It was kinda difficult to find a cake maker who was able to do that for a cake that’s less than 1 kg. So I gave up on the idea. BUT I found Pine Gardens (thankfully through the Straits Times Lifestyle section which covered on custom cakes) and they had BAILEYS CHOCOLATE CAKE! πŸ˜€ I ordered and had it delivered to his place in the morning!

Surprise #2 (FAILED): Initially, I had wanted to surprise him with a bunch of friends on his birthday. It was really funny because everyone had different schedules and it was so difficult to cater to everyone, so I cancelled the whole plan. The funny thing was, then the night before, everyone seemed to be able to make on Saturday (!!!) but I had already planned something for the day.

Surprise #3 (Indeed a surprise!): So the thing I planned was a trip to Universal Studios! That’s the big thing in Singapore, isn’t it? I initially had planned to bring him there but the tickets were SOLD OUT 2 weeks before his birthday! I was crushed. I was so disappointed that I even told Calvin about it. πŸ˜› So I scampered to figure out where to bring him for his birthday. Then just 2 nights before (when I realized the surprise with friends isn’t possible), I just decided to check again to see if tickets were available. God must have known I badly wanted to surprise Calvin with something! And to my surprise, the tickets were available! So I rushed to purchase them and because he thought they were sold out, he was indeed surprised on the day itself!

Surprise #4 (Totally Unplanned!): Now, this came as a surprise to me too! The Singapore Navy decided to show some LURRRVVE to my dearest boy and called him at 10am for immediate mobilization. We were on the way to Sentosa already when he received the call from them. Can you imagine how crushed we were??? Calvin’s face totally went white when he received the call and then he told me to drive home for him to dress in his navy uniform. I thought he was trying to pull a prank on me. Until I realized, he wasn’t joking. So we had to head down all the way to Changi for him to report for the mobilization. I parked the car at the SAF Yacht Club and waited and prayed the mobilization was not for the whole day nor a surprise exercise. God answered my prayer: he was out in 30 minutes!

Surprise #5 (Didn’t make it): A birthday is never complete with a birthday dinner or some sort of treat at some fancy restaurant right? So I had planned to bring him to Sapphire at Mount Faber. But guess what! We were tooooo exhausted from the day at Universal Studios!! Haha.. So in the end, we drove home with tired legs and exhausted bodies and bought takeaway food from the coffee shop near his place.

Now, if you were to ask me, I would say if anyone were to ask him, so what did you do on your 26th birthday? I can be sure, he will remember what we did. Simply because the Singapore Navy mobilization made it unforgettable. Also, the trip to Universal Studios was an eye-opener for us, especially when it’s a theme park in our own small island country.

Well, I really hoped he enjoyed himself as much as I did that day because he truly deserves it..! πŸ™‚

Are You Going To Comex 2009?

September 4, 2009

Basically, I only got wind that Comex 2009 is happening next week! It just comes at a perfect time when I need to get 7 computers, 2 printers and a couple more tech stuff for the new office.


If you still don’t know the event details, here are they are:

Date: 10th to 13th Sep 2009 (4 whole full days of great tech bargains!)
Venue: Suntec City Convention Halls (I really wished they had it at the EXPO cos Suntec is a totally sardine-packed, squeezy-till-cannot-breathe, crowded-till-i-can’t-see-anything venue.)

Sigh.. another round of squeezing with the crowds! I especially hate those people who are just there to “look-see” when there are lots of people who are genuinely and urgently looking to buy something.

MY TOP TIP when going to Comex & IT Show : Have a checklist and know what you want to buy.

Now.. I’m gonna head off to do mine! πŸ˜‰

Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese Niu Year!

January 27, 2009

It was a very fruitful day today because well, i got to visit tons of relatives by visiting 5 homes. Basically, I got in touch with my family whom i hardly meet or contact unless at special occasions such as weddings and funerals. Sad but true. I mean.. with everyone being busy with work, school or plainly just LIFE, there’s really no possible time where people can gather in 10s or 20s just chatting and eating good food. Right?

I got in touch with my Chinese heritage and tradition, which I hardly get to do so because my family aren’t your typical Chinese family because we’re too westernized in a way.. oh well~ So yep, today was a day for me to know the traditions and practises that our ancestors once had. Also, it’s just to be in touch with the elders of the family who hold so much of a family’s foundation. I don’t ever want that foundation to be lost, especially after these elders move on in life. But it’s definitely easier said than done. πŸ™

So, today I learnt that family relations are important yet fragile. Fragile because these family relations can be broken so easily just by having one party not being in contact with the other. Important because family relations provide social support that we always desire and deserve. Sometimes, we don’t realise how important it is until it’s lost and cannot be found again.

Lastly, I found evidence that proves love is the greatest gift of all. What are these evidence?

1. My parents loving me and grooming me and raising me up to who i am today. Only love can provide such motivation for 23 years.

2. My cousin-in-law’s love for her children and how she unconditionally loves and educates them.

3. My newly wed cousins showing all signs of bliss and adoration.

4. My aunt who loves her sons so much that she gives them her blessings and supports them in whatever they do.

5. My cousin who wants to get married to the woman he loves but knows the importance of being able to provide the ideal lifestyle. Hence, he only decides to arrange the wedding after he is confident that he can achieve it for them.

6. My grand aunt’s love for the family such that she’s willing to be the mediator, the broadcasting channel and just being the connector to everybody, when nobody really wants to take up that job.

Love exists in different forms. You may not see these as forms of love. But I do.

I see love through their heart and their eyes.

It’s amazing. Which is why, I treasure the love that i receive from my parents and loved ones and most importantly, my Father from above. He is love. And it’s because of Him, love exists..

To God. To Love. To Happiness.

Happy Chinese New Year.

Chinese New Year

Mad Rush to Usher In Chinese New Year!

January 25, 2009

Chinese New Year is really the time when I feel that it’s really a NEW YEAR. Probably because it’s on a larger scale of festivities because well, almost 70% ++ of the Singaporeans here, are SURE to celebrate this occasion. It really feels more significant than the New Year that happens after 31 December 23:59:59. Weird huh?

I think it’s just a CHINESE thing. hahaha..

I forgot to wish everyone a happy new year 2009 and most of all, i didn’t share photos from my birthday! It was a wonderful birthday spent with my dearest Calvin and of course, not forgetting my mum ordering the usual Blackforest cake that i ‘oh so love’. πŸ˜€ It was definitely a blessed birthday and I really am thankful for all the friends who remembered it!!

Here are some photos from my birthday!

I suffered a bout of Stomach Flu just after my birthday.. which was a pretty bad experience that thankfully didn’t linger too long over.. But other than that, the first week or first 2 weeks actually, were great!

Now, it’s gonna get better! Cos Chinese New Year is fast approaching!Β  I can’t believe that the first post that I’m writing in this new year of 2009 is actually on it. I’ve been eating and snacking on all those goodies just a week before and I can already foresee the weighing scale going up (Again!) I certainly don’t wish for that to happen.. considering that I’ve already put on 5kg after my graduation. This is really BAD.

Anyway, I shopped A LOT for chinese new year.. or at least for my birthday… my dearest Darling gave me an Eeyore soft toy for my birthday which is sooo adorable!! πŸ˜€ And he even threw in another gift……… a BEAUTIFUL, i mean really beautiful COACH bag… Something that i’ve always procrastinated on buying because I’m always quite reluctant to spend $$$ on expensive bags.. But well, he did, FOR ME!

I’m really thankful to God for everyone in my life – my friends, family and boyfriend (future hubby-to-be)… hahaha.. He really is amazing, God that is.. haha.. Okok, so is Calvin.. Well, now I’ve got such a fab bag to carry around during Chinese New Year! πŸ˜€ Major happy!!!

Well, I hope that everyone will have a great Chinese New Year and holiday ahead!! It’s the time to start eating and enjoying and collecting ang baos (red packets with $$)! May everyone have a bountiful harvest! LOL!
