just came back from shanghai, the weather there was quite cold. or rather the time that when i was there with wj. we visited quite a few touristy places in shanghai...the old buildings there are really something different compared to shenzhen. also there were lotsa new funny things to eat which you cant find here in shenzhen! things like strawberries coated with malted candy on a satay stick, deep fried battered fish and small crabs as finger food on a cold winter's day! WONDERFUL!
*heehee, me mountain turtle mah, haven been to shanghai yet so this is a virgin's visit for me!*

and lotsa steaming hot xiaolongbaos and congee and tangyuans at the famous YuYuan Gardens...
Think the most beautiful sight for me was the UFO-like oriental Pearl tower!!! cos it's spheres are PINK!!!!!!!! muahahha! so pink that when the sun is shining on it, it reflects pink glows on the road! B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L!!!

we also visited the JinMao Tower, the beautiful Bund and of cos M on the Bund too...and i even tried the Spore Jack's Place restaurant along NanJing Road...okies lah. oh...and we visited the RenMin GuangChang and Shopping belt aka Spore's Orchard road:HuaiHai Road...Had some coffee at Starbucks...didnt do any shopping cos velley poor....*tis is true, shall tell u girls more when i get back, horrible pay i get i tell u, hmph...*

Christmas Day

me and weijie went to M on the bund for lunch. Although it was very pricey but it was worth the visit. The view from the deck was impeccable with the whole view of the Shanghai Tang. However the weather was too chilly to dine outside and enjoy the view. Most lunch goers preferred the warm comforts of the indoors.

The food was sumptous and of cos velley prettily decorated.Our main course was chicken steak with sausages and bacons..very angmoh style, we had chestnut soup for starters and the waiter served us bread to go along with it.

although the bread was tasty but it was not warm!!! i guess this was the only part which i wasnt very happy about. For desserts, was Turkish coffee with biscosti. And of cos many tiny mandarin oranges on the side.

Merry Christmas EVERYONE! view from M on the bund

A day fun in Macau

Rise and shine at 630am to catch the 830am ferry to Macau. The ferry ride cost us each 130 RMB. We arrived at Macau without a map and no cash...SO EXCITING.
I nearly freaked out, but heng WJ still remembers how to walk from the ferry terminal to the city area and along the way we passed by a bank and withdrew out some cash.

Soon we reached the famous Le Senado Square and had my favourite steam milk pudding! velley good for skin!! I highly recommend it to u gals oh!!! Next we strolled along the square and bought their local products-peanut candy and beef/ pork jerky! WJ's fave...

1 Pitstop: Ruins of St Paul's Church.
2 Pitstop: Macau Museum and we exited at the top of the historic Monte Fort which showed us quite a scenic view of Macau. WJ makes a trip to the little boys room again. Down 3 flights of escalators and we reached to the bottom of Monte Fort once more and I finally bought my fridge magnet! Woohoo! After waiting soooo long!

1pm: Lunchtime at one of those dingy shophouses and had wanton noodles!
3 Pitstop: Flora gardens. We took the cable car up...and guess what...the ride was only $2 MOP!!! = S$0.40!!!! *faints*after the ride up we walked towards the infamous lighthouse and marched into the "Chapel of our lady Guia" where there was a security guard snoozing comfortably in his chair.

4 Pitstop: Back at Le Senado Square. Bought 2 Portuguese Egg Tart! YUMMILICIOUS!!!
5 Pitstop: Starbucks. WJ had his Raspberry Frappucino while Velle had her latte. And there was this unforgettable lady who talks to herself and...she has the loudest burp I have ever heard!!!!! And nonstop somemore...sheesh. Very very gross.

6 Pitstop: Ferry Terminal and back to shenzhen once more. Cooked our own dinner to save $$$ and by 10pm, we both were in dreamland..damn tired feets but with happy and contented tummies.

what is it to you that im spoilt?

im spoilt because i have people who are willing to spoil me and you dun.
im spoilt because u are not as ignorant as me or as half as bliss as me.
im spoilt because im sheltered and you aint. so fend for urself.
what stamps? i cant begin to tell you how many men have fallen at my feet. and you think it's because im spoilt? hell no! it's because you are so lacking in taste, looks and quality gal! OPEN UR GOD DAMN EYES...or maybe you prefer to see that i'm 'spoilt' and 'that young girl' becos u refuse to admit that there are people like me whom guys u like, will fall for me instead of you.

i don't open a conversation with you means im proud and arrogant? so you yak non-stop and u are miss congeneality yah? well you don't deserve a hi from me gal. so what if my dressing irks you? you and your friends can shop at MNG and i cant? PLUREEZE there are like million and one girls in SG all wearing MNG clothings. if u can't stand being similar with me, buy a GUCCI or CHANEL.

stop bitching behind my back and tell it to my face.
you and ur bitching friends.

this must be one of those worst days of my life.
the anticipation is killing me. im prepared for the worst.
the power of the individual.
6months more or less, 6months of agony or happiness, 6months of youth or age, 6months of love or forlorn...

Chapter2 - The Cauldron Congregation

830pm: Velley Vomit and Sinister Shilynn arrived at the doorsteps of Jinxy Jubes and Ghastly Googs haunting hut.
Jinxy Jubes: heeeheee...welcome my evil sisters!Ghastly Googs is preparing the Hatred Honey Ham and Cruel Crotons as we speak!
Velley Vomit stared at Jinxy Jubes and Ghastly Googs and spitted vehemently: what! wearing jeans on our annual Cauldron Congregation!!!THIS CANNOT BE!!!
Sinister Shilynn shakes her head in disapproval: and i purposedly wore my sequinned black shiny pants for this special occasion!!! to think the both of you wore jeans! tsk tsk!!!

panic. 2minutes later, Jinxy Jubes came out of her broom cupboard in a black apron whilst Ghastly googs wore a peddar pusher beggars out. Satisfied. Velley Vomit and Sinister Shilynn sat down on the couch to watch the Australian Idiots while the other 2 witches continued with their preparation of the sinful salad in their magical bottomless pit.

9pm: the 4 witches started their chants and poof-ing spells, finally they were ready to eat from their cauldron.

Alas! Jinxy Jubes had abit of problem with her pointee hat, it kept slipping down as she ate, covering her face. Poor gal...across the table,Sinister Shilynn just shoke her head sarcastically with her hat firmly in place. Redfaced, Jinxy Jubes took her hat off and ate in silence. Not to be outdone, Jinxy Jubes commented that Ghastly Googs looks like a garden gnome in her pointee hat....
Ghastly Googs blurted out: eh wat is a gnome huh???
10pm: after their dinner, they decided to watch XXX, and no it is not pornograhpy. And yes it was lousy as the subtitles were driving the 4 witches mad as it was sprouting out vulgarities which totally was a mismatch to wat the actor was saying. *faints*

1030pm: Ghastly Googs: totally unacceptable!!!
1045pm: Velley Vomit decides that to end the Cauldron Congregation, they should watch the Fantastic Four witches! "Aye" cried the rest of the 3 witches.
11pm: Velley Vomit squeaked: erm...can we have abit of Snow White's Poisonous Apple Pie now???
1105pm: crackling at the firestove, they dumped the pie in and charred it till it was ebony black and all nodded in agreement that it was the most poisonous apple pie that they have ever eaten. Sinister Shilynn: thanks to the toadstool butter which i added!

2am:THE END.

An evil witchey meeting

4pm: something evil was brewing up at Gratten street...a horrid stench of flour, eggs and orange rind...clink clink clang clang....
sinister shilynn cried shriekingly: eeee! there is not enuff toadstool butter!
velley vomit squeaked: oh! then u had better scoop down to saveway on ur broom to get some!
And away she flew out of the chimney leaving velley vomit to settle the preparation of the "snow white's poisonous apple pie" that they were concocting their afternoon....
At the struck of 445pm, sinister shilynn stormed into the hall on her broom with the butter and the 2 evil witches continued with the hatching of their poisonous pie...

*halfway during their magical makings, a gnome came to disturb sinister shilynn and pissed her off until her eyeballs turned white..."begone!" sinister shilynn screamed and sent a electrifying spark to the gnome's buttocks and the gnome squeaked and scrambled back to the basement. velley vomit stared in bewilderments...trembling in fear at the towering witch.

530pm: the evil pie was done.

600pm: both witches got off their brooms and landed at 9 Earl street, grinning toothsomely at their wonderous pie and now, velley vomit is about to pass on her pukey potato concoction to sinister shilynn.
"boil boil bubble and toil..." as the 2 of them stood by their blackened cauldrons with their wands in their long thin fingers, winking at each other as the potato charred to an evil Char Tau Kwey hue.
sinister shilynn shrieked out her spell: i like mine orh-orh....heee-heeee!!!!!!
velley vomits brings her hands to her ears to cover that sinister wicked spell as those who hear it will most likely turn orh-orh too.

800pm: "Wee...." screamed the 2 witches as the pukey potato was churned and patted and puked and vomitted. They both went to the shoe cupboard to change and got their brooms as they set off for LaTrabee House to meet Jinxy Jubes and Ghastly Googs.

halfway round...velley vomit squeaked "ooooo! i forgot our pointee hats!!!" and sinister shilynn gives her a disapproving glare and shrieked:" ohh u silly gal! wait here! i shall go and get them!" and away she darted back to 9 Earl St for their hats.

Back at LaTrobee House...the annual Cauldron Congregation was about to begin...

to be continued...stay tuned for the adventures of velley vomit and gangly witcheys

Final Crit

Image hosted by i dun want to talk about it.

velle can cook! - bubble and squeak


12oz (350g) any cooked vegetables - carrots, zucchini, sprouts, beans, peas, mushrooms, bell pepper, cauliflower or broccoli
2 tablespoons oil or butter
1 large onion, peeled and thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 1/2 lb (675g) potatoes, mashed, with a dash of pepper and salt and milk
12oz (350g) cooked shredded cabbage
4oz (100g) streaky bacon slices, crisply fried and crumbled (optional)
*psst i used honey baked ham...well it's up to ur creativity and tastebuds!

> Use any boiled or roast leftover potatoes you may have, simply mashed them and cut the other vegetables into dices.
> Heat oil in a large frying pan and fry onions and garlic gently until soft but barely browned. Add mashed potato and stir-fry for about 5 minutes. Add cabbage and cook for a few more minutes more, stirring well to prevent sticking as the mixture begins to brown. Add other vegetables and continue until well browned.
> Pat the mixture down into a fairly flat cake and cook until golden brown underneath, please oil the pan, if not it will not be golden brown. Flip it over and browned it a few more minutes.
> U can remove from pan and shape it again and fry on both sides until golden brown.
> Serve cut into wedges and sprinkled with crumbled bacon.
