Top Three Places in 2010

I'm just gonna post about three of the few places I visited in the year 2010 to wrap up this year :). Actually, these three places hold significant memories and meanings that if I wasn't living in Malaysia, I would consider living in these areas :D. If not, I would really like to revisit these places one day :D

#1 - Singapore

You know, I really love Singapore. I could live there forever. I've been there for five times this year, entered Universal Studio once, then been to Orchard Road from one end to another end and then another end back to one end, went in to each and every mall on that particular road, window shopped and dreamt bout LV/Miu Miu over there.

No offense, mostly hear-say about the food that like 'which is famous and which is tasty' and then I went and tried all that was said, and none was as told to me. Nonetheless, I love the transport system and how organized everything is over there. The only food outlet I love there is the McD and the only beverage outlet I will never stop loving over there is Coffee Bean. Towards these two outlets, my marginal utility will only keep growing and the curve will only keep increasing until maximum and stays there :)

I don't really like the Universal Studio over there, too small compared to the one in other countries, nonetheless good job fitting it in on Sentosa Island. It's indeed a good investment. Another thing I really like about Singapore, is Sands at Marina Bay. I've been to the one in Macao and need I tell you that these two are identical :).

Entered the Sands Casino at Macao but I shall not dwell on the topic here since this is supposed to be about Singapore :). So ya, peeps I know basically thinks that Singapore is like my second home since I went there very often in 2010 despite being in home country, Malaysia.

There's this kind uncle who lives in Singapore too, and that's why we go there often. He would bring us around for good food and company. Where else to find such good guide right :)?

my favorite drink, Coffee Bean is everywhere in Singapore.

I only posted bout Singapore here, here and here, didn't want to bore you peeps :).

#2 - Japan

This is another place that I could live in forever besides #1, live off what? Sashimis and fast foods lol! It's been a while since my trip over there, went over there to spend Chinese New Year 2010 and it snowed in areas that weren't supposed to be snowing. Climatic drastic change aye? Anyway I got to experience life in areas like Shinjuku and Harajuku where those places were always depicted in moves to be very dangerous and a lot of mafias live there. Seriously, where else would people dress like cos playing if not in Japan?

You could go around carrying a fake katana and wear your Samurai attire and no one would look at you, no one. Or, you could dye your hair half pink half blue while wearing super mini skirt without leggings at 5 degree celsius and it's normal :)

I shall show you a better version of Universal Studio, one I would very much prefer to go back to in the future :)

I wouldn't miss out the better version of Disneyland (compared to the one in Hong Kong that I went to in 2009) here too :D

I remember roughly that I had too much fun NOM-ING that day in Tokyo Disneyland

My first time in a yukata on Fuji Mountain

Now that I think of it, I don't have any pictures of me skiing over there, didn't want to risk getting my camera wet :S. That was my second time skiing after Switzerland 2 years ago :D

Brace yourself for the top Japanese sweet I tasted in Japan :D
Tada! Strawberry cake.
Someone kill me please cause I want it badly now and I'm not any slender than I was yesterday and the day before :(.

The little Starbucks kiosk at Kansai Airport, I had my white chocolate mocha over there :)

Oh ya, shopped a lot too over there, WINDOW *COUGH* SHOPPED LOL. You know right, it's high cost living in Japan :(, can't really afford to buy everything there. Nevertheless, really want to have a second trip there in the future.

My previous post on Japan here.

#3 - Redang Island

Of clear water, blue sky and perfect 'sot' company, what else could I demand for a perfect vacation? I spent about almost a week there with fellow PE1-ians as a graduation trip. All of us had fun over there. This place held significant memory and experience for all of us. It's a place we will all remember for a very long time :D

If you ever want to go there, stay at Laguna or Berjaya :D However, I would advice Laguna because I stayed there at that time and it's at the center of all the resorts. Meanwhile, Berjaya is at the far end :S.

This is a perfect island get away, mark my word.

Burying Likky alive *evil laughters*

Group photo :D

For Selvy who didn't manage to join us :D, we love our classmates.

Finding nemo (my version)

Tired of hectic schedules? Tired of the same routine everyday? Just want to catch your breathe and leave everything behind even just for a while? Redang is the place for you :).

I posted about Redang here.

Ahh, this wraps up the top three places in 2010 :). 2010 has not been all good and smooth sailing, nonetheless I learnt from them. Now, Taiwan and Europe #2 awaits me in 2011.

and this is how we roll.

Aloha peeps, I think guilt itself really helps alot, study wise! I've been procrastinating so much in the past week that I've actually felt so guilty this week! So the result is this week is going really well and need I say, productive :D. Monday started off with university's club activity, we broke the ice with the orphans and now they opened up to us :).

Tuesday was just another day, so I studied! Ya I actually studied, then watched the premiere screening of 'The Tourist' at night. I didn't really like the movie, too cheesy for me :). I wouldn't pay to watch it though :D

Ahhhh, today am hosting a pre- new year lunch gathering for PE1 :), can't wait really :D

Just in case you have no idea about my class during A-levels :), this class consist of these group of awesome peeps yo!

my christmas in Singapore for 2010, my kind of almost-perfect getaway!

You can say that, me wanting to spend the last Christmas of my teenage year in Singapore with two friends and my brother, was a last minute plan :). However, it turned out to be really good and I had lots of fun, they were some of my favourite peeps because they were always up for anything :).

Pictures shall tell you how I spent my 25th and 26th over there in the land down under :)

Breakfast @Yu Kee Food House

Duck's not ready yet, so we had their breakfast set.
Who still make half boiled eggs this way? CLASSIC!

Lunch #1 @MOS Burger, Bugis Junction
Unagi Rice Burger, smaller than a fist.

Even the Yakiniku Rice Burger, standard dropped a lot.

Then, off we went to Bugis Street a.k.a Singapore's Sungei Wang.
This is in Bugis Street :)

We went to the new mall at Bugis too, it's called iluma.
Unique inverted Christmas trees in the mall.

passed by Parkview Square, one of the most expensive office buildings in Singapore.
It's as if the swan/bird/dove is flying on top of my head.

Lunch #2 @YuKee Food House
Char Siew Rice, rice texture was good, taste wise soso only.

Duck noodle, not so good though.

whee :D


Then we walked all the way to the one and only MMA shop in Singapore because the guys wanted to buy their dream shirts :D

Everything that my brother wanted were not available :(
This is him saying 'NO!'

After that, we went to Marina Bay Sands :D
More deco!


Ferrari boy :D

Dinner @McD
Double Samurai Burger, slightly bigger than a fist.
*thumb up* for this :D

Supper @Tong Sui shop along the same street as YuKee :D
Papaya, Snow Fungus, Lotus Seed and Tong Yuen :D, MINE!

Their barley, gingko and beancurd skin.

Breakfast @Bugis Junction Ground Floor.
Oyster Mee Sua and Fried Chicken.

Old Chang Kee's Fish Balls and Squid Balls.

Bak Chor Mee, not so good, lack of taste.

Another Christmas tree we saw in Vivo City.
Huge ain't it :O

Human Sandwiches man, trying to board the Sentosa Express.

We boarded the coach in Sentosa Island around 3.30pm.
Our journey lasted for about 7 hours.
It was an exhausting journey, but I had fun :)

This was how I spent my Christmas this year :), happy much!

Orphanage visit to City Revival Church's Home for Boys

Hello there :), I'm back home from Singapore around 10pm last night :). It feels good to be home, although I really love to be at Singapore :). I stayed in Hotel 81, Bugis. It's a budget hotel and the room was really small, the bed was hard LOL. I had feet ache on Saturday, but body ache on Sunday LOL!

Oh well, I shall post about Singapore later, now it's time to talk about the first orphanage visit organized by the Community Service Club for Taylor's Law School that we did this morning :). Basically everyone gathered at Taylor's and we left to the orphanage by 9am. Reached there around 9.10am because it was just at USJ 5 :). There were 12 boys in the home, they were really friendly although some was a bit aggressive I shall say :S.

Pictures time :)!

The Home

We went in for a bit, talked for a while and then brought the kids to the park!

Zhe Xian patting his buddy, Ivan :)

Wen Shen waiting for his buddy, Kevin to tie his shoe laces.

Happy people heading to the park :D

Joshua and Joshua, no kidding :)

Reached the park and time to play some games yo.

First game - the name tag game
We formed a circle and started by saying our names then everyone had to repeat it, this is memory work :) Just for warming up :D

The shyest kid of the 12 boys, Adam.

Second game - the newspaper musical game
Everyone stand on a piece of newspaper with their buddy and who stood out of the paper every round will be eliminated :)
Winner was Wen Shen and Kevin :D

Third and last game - the blanket game
Team A on the left side of the blanket and Team B on the right, one has to guess who's on the other side and answer first when the blanket is brought down :).
Team B won!

After that, the guys played futsal with the kids while we arranged the individual packets of sweets to be given to each kid :).

The sweets!

Two photographers of the day :D
Me with my ciplak camera and James with his DSLR.

Never thought that I would have a chance to camwhore with swing XD

Back to the Home, distributed the packets of sweets to the kids, took some more pics (with Jame's DSLR) and then we all left around 11.10am because the kids had a schedule to follow.

Oh well, the visit was unexpectedly fun and relaxing, the kids were friendly and well-behaved :). Now that the ice was broken, I'm looking forward to more future visits to this home and the activities that the Community Service Club will hold for this City Revival Church's Home for Boys :), and maybe next time the girls from USJ11 will be able to make it :).
