I wonder issit becos the main building didnt charge all the offices after hours 'aircon' utility bills. And so they off the aircons! Off with their heads! Crazy! And there is no singular unit system in our office. So literally we are airconless!

The collective memory of a city is based on common places that a community remembers. Buildings that evolve over time are key to the collective memory of a city: they are shared memories that shape a city's identity. These buildings urban artifacts, and likened them to works of art because they help shape and are shaped by the public's unconscious. These urban artifacts evolve over time: they change their functions, they grow, they shrink, but the core stays the same.

okay, away from me. Yups, our mr goh didnt know of my condition, happily agreed to a friday ktv nite to which he had to refused our colleagues thus putting him in an embarassing spot. And of cos, he put the blame on ME for a second+seconds+seconds, saying how malu he must be infront of all our colleagues. especially when they have booked a BIG room for the nite. Anyway, like i said, we (wj and i) were rather guilty of not being able to attend the KTV outing, so we decided to join them for dinner before retiring back to our apts. And so here are the pictures of that nite's terrific claypot congee!
shrimp and crab filling topped with parsley and simmered with water-chestnuts.

i know u gals must be thinking that who am i kidding. But it's true! imagine u walking from tangs to paragon, u know how long that path is rite? okie imagine every step u walk, there is a really sparkling and dirt cheap bling bling emblazing at you! waving and crying buy me buy me. For christsakes, how can you resist that unimaginable long road filled with sparkies? It's like going into a tiffanys that is never-ending with a price tag of $2.(some are only 40c!!!)
Now how's that for self control?

HOW CAN THAT BE POSSIBLE!!!!
i did do a checklist for
1. visit my hairstylist (didn't make it)
2. check out charles and keith (resisted yet again) and vincci (didnt have time)
3. check out tangs(nope didnt go there), paragon (skipped) , isetan (went and left) , ThisFashion (missed it again), FarEast ( i made it to the bridge but turn back cos it was too crowded).
and i only bought shoes...no dresses, skirts, tops or bags!(okie i did buy a pair of Paul Frank sleeping shorts but that does not count!) nothing! what has happened to me!!!! sobsob. Am i not the shopaholic that im infamous for? huh huh? im doomed. doomed. doomed.
What was i doing the whole week? Let's see....Rite i have to attribute that i came back on a monday nite which was near midnite, actually it was midnite. So i just went home, gave my prezzies away and slept. Tuesday i was at lunch with my parents (cos must celebrate daddy's birthday) then i was 'going grocery' (stocking up for the next few months) for china, wed, thu, fri was all spent at the hills, accumulating cobwebs (which is another story altogether), sat was buffet with the parents and evening was hotpot with the PPGS, sunday was spenting packing, cleaning my rabbit and moving back to Wj's place. Monday morning was spent at a local kopitiam, catching up on my roots, realising that hey so many pple are not working either on a monday, called my dearest cousin to say that im going off and didnt have time to catchup and realise that she too, was in bed and not working . Afternoon was spent at the airport and off i flew to china.
okay maybe i was alittle picky during my stint back home. Then again i was feeling rather bruised at the fact that the Great Singapore Sale was arriving and that i shouldn't be buying stuff at this time when prices are going to drop next month rite? But then....

okie, back to the real stuff, the buffet is definitely worth its every cent this i swear. Their durian pengat is what my mother swore on returning and she had 3 big helpings on top of her 2 regular servings of the normal and continental buffet. Their buah keluak was good too i heard from my dad who managed to scoop up 2 nuts before everyone else did. So he was the only one in the family who had tried it.
As for me, i had 4 huge servings of my salmon sashimi, scallops, 2 baked oysters (yucks! cos fresh ones are always the best!) mussels, sushi, crab brisque (dunno how's my spelling over here but heck) some steamed fish which my dardar got for me. And of cos these green delicious pore thingys.

assemble at Bukit Timah Plaza Taxi entrance. Freaking early. my eyes haven even split open yet, wearing my coke bottled specs, wrapped in my red quilted jacket, we got onto a cab which was still running on midnite charges. Waited for about an hour plus, ticked our names off the list, boarded onto our GOLD cruiser. WHOA. Automated sofas which inclines and stretches forward to become a bed with in built leg rest. COMFY. rite, it's snoozing time.
Finally we are on the move towards Tuas Checkpoint. Go down, checkin our thumbprints. Go up the coach. Reach JB checkpoint. Go down, chopped our passports. Go up the coach. SNOOze time. Drool abit. Got caught by Wj yet again. *redface*
i woke up and saw we were in the forest.
Going up the winding road now. anytime now. Hey didnt we just drove up the hills? how come we are driving down the hills again. weird. Now we are going up the hills again. Time to sleep again.
ohoh. die lah. i need to pee. i twitched my face, pressed my tummy, pulled my hair. Grabbed and squeezed wj's hand till he bit his lower lip in pain. Anytime now. TAHAN!
Reached the hotel lobby and i stormed to the tandas.PHEW. relief. Now we can check in. BUT. HUH! we have to take a Q number for checking IN! maciam like seeing the doctor!
yeah! Room 7910, here we come. Open the door and WHAM! a puny toilet like 3mx3m. a queensize bed, corner tv, 2 stools, a small dressing table with an attached pole above us with hangers. GREAT. Bedsheets were as thin as muslim. EVEN BETTER. Both wj and I cant wait to get out of our rooms. Rites so it's time for lunch!
Like my mother said. I was shortchanged. But i really had no choice. Firstly i can only go back to SG during the first week of May. Secondly the hotel which i was supposed to stayed in was fully book: The Resort Hotel. (hey i tried booking like 3 weeks in advance and still didnt managed to get a room, so it's not a fault of mine.) So the lady in charged booked us a room at First World Hotel which btw is in the Guiness World Record of having the most number of rooms! 6118 rooms in total!
