New coin purses to keep my shinies in! The red one was even big enough to hold my lip gloss and mirror, a few hairbands and bobby pins!

And we are off to one of shenzhen's hills for a morning climb. Too much meat last nite, now it's payback time. Luckily for us it wasnt a sunny day (although i slapped tons of sunblock on my face like a mask!) and it didnt rain either although grey clouds were loaming near. The beginning was quite tough as there was quite abit of construction going on at the foot of the hill, the dirt track was dusty and loose. So many stones on the way were actually quite deceiving as strong footholds but they turn out to be so roll-y. One of our colleagues brought her popo(read grandma) along, poor popo had to climb down and go back home as we all reckon that it was really too steep for her age to go climbing!
By noon, we were up at the peak! munching our nuts and bananas. (so ape-like) ... sitting wearily on the dusty sand with our mineral water. i wonder did i lose any calories at all after eating all that tidbits! *shucks* might as well dun climb rite! sobsob.

When one of my colleagues asked me whether would i like to have dinner with them. My immediate reaction was...SURE!
And he suggested that we were going to eat roast lamb... okie! i dun mind lamb, really. In fact when it comes to satay, i love mutton! cos it's always very savoury, sweet and tender!
Food here seems to hold alot more surprises and it was quite a big surprise! As really in big.
It was the whole lamb.
Like a sacrificial lamb in those bible story. When i saw them put it in our dining room, i nearly fainted. I saw the head, the whole body, binded hoofs...i guess the only relief bit was they didnt put the whole lamb on our table like a plate of steam fish for us to cut it up into pieces. The next photo, im really sorry if it offends anyone of you but i really have to show it!
IT'S EDUCATIONAL! so don't eat roast\grilled lamb when u hear it in china. Cos it's so cruel to have it eaten this way...:( i know i wun do it again, i rather have mine on a satay stick just like the others.
Definitely not for the faint hearted, animal lovers or vegetarians. But it was delicious. Very heaty but still deli-ci-ous

Well, after been blogging for some time now and as an architectural student, i would like to see myself as a student for im still young and in a stage of learning the ropes. Many a times i wanted to just blog about architecture and gadgets and even living stuff ( things that are cool and nice to have in your living room, that sort of stuff, mind you, nothing to do with plants.) which i have succumbed many times as i couldnt resist not spreading those kinda 'good' news to everyone who reads my blog.
And after reading so many architecture+blog, there's always an urge in me to show my view to this world. Especially my built surroundings.
However, at the end of the day, i figure out that there are so many better and stronger writers\bloggers out there and i rather leave that 'superhero' rescue mission of the built environment to them to voice their opinions and take a seat back and rest.
Becos what i do best is to blog about the simplicities of my daily life for my friends and family.

Last weekend, wj and i caught a glimpse (a glimpse as we were in the clients' car and i only wound my window down to take some photos) of Haikou city's famous 老街 after a long meeting at the clients' office.
simply put. It was dreadful.
No, not the old street. But the meeting. It was held early in the morning and I was like a vase the whole time. Why, becos they were speaking in a dialect which i didn't understand at all. The jokes that they made, i didnt even bother laughing. What for? When i dun even understand a word u are saying mister. Okay i did try my best to listen to what they were saying and pick out certain words which sounded like mandarin. But it was tough and i end up losing my concentration. At least i didn't pout. Hmm, then again i may have done so not knowingly.
Rite, back to sightseeing...It was a very long stretch of old shophouses, dilapidated and run-down. Electricity was generated in big kettle drums at junctions of roads. i think back home, nobody would want live in these sort of slum-like places anymore, it reminded me of those squatter housing which i saw in my history textbooks when i was young. However the street was bustling with activites, it was very much alived and not abandoned; an old man pulling a wheel cart packed with cardboards and recycleable products, women with pointed straw hats riding on bicycles and lots of roadside hawkers selling WenChang Chicken. Suddenly i felt that i was wheeled back in time to the 40s.

anyway, what im going to say is that...i have watched so many movies these couple of weeks here aredi! I've watched the whole series of HuaYangShaoNianShaoNu which i missed it in singapore as it was aired at 7pm and i knock off work at 630pm which concludes me not being able to watch a single episode at all. This TCS ah, so clever of them to put it at that kind of timing where working people like me cant catch it at all! HMMPH!
And i have even covered movies like: The Protege (yucks, didnt like it at all), Casino Royale (i failed to catch it yet again on the big screen), Spiderman2 (yes i re-watched this one, i'm that desperate) hmm...wat else, i think there were 2 other movies but it was those forgettable ones with adam sandler in it. Farnie ones but still forgettables.
And NOW i'm currently watchin the GONG korean drama serial.....*sheesh*

So we decided to dropby walmart's Ajisan Ramen for dinner. Although it was expensive, considering in China's standard but at least we didnt see the same familiar waitress' faces.
After eating Ajisan, my verdict is still the same as before.
I dun like Ajisan.
I dun its msg.
I dun like everything about it.
~ i still like japanese food just not ajisan ramen.

i find you somedays terribly irritating. i hope we can stay amicably together but somedays i think it's best that we are so far apart. You can keep coming, i'll just ignore you as best as i can.
