98th Monthiversary ($4 neoprint / S$9 Weekend Movie)

So some of you might have seen my Twitter/Facebook update..
"98th Monthiversary celebration. Really enjoyed myself today. Shutter bus ride, $4 neoprints, $9 movie tickets, Japanese pasta/pizza dinner."

Honestly it's just supposed to be a normal weekend but I was on this super impromptu mood. :P

We decide to go Bugis temple to pray for safety of Winnie. Since we're going towards the east side, I decide to meet a customer to pass her her item at Paya Lebar Mrt pickup/drop off point. While waiting for her we notice the there's a FREE shutter bus to I12 Katong Mall and it piped the impromptu streak in me instantly.. heh.

Got on the shutter bus and off we go to a place we've never been to. Like totally "adventurous".
I know I know.. it's only a MALL. But consider I've been a really very good girl, I stayed at home for almost all the weekends since I knew of Winnie's existence leh!! So off we go to explore this new place. :D

75% of you came in here to find out about the S$4 neoprint right?

It's been years since we last took neoprints (photo stickers). So still feeling impromptu-ish. We decide to try the machine at a corner of Timezone arcade. Best decision ever! It's only S$4 and we had ALL the time in the world to decorate it because this machine has this program that as long as there's no customer inside taking photos, there's no time limit!

 Short video I took while waiting for our photos to be printed..

So another 20% of you came in to find out where did I watch movie on a Weekend for S$9 a ticket right? :P

Since the mall's not that packed, we decide to check out their movie theater to see if we can catch a movie. We managed to get tickets to watch TED, on my favourite aisle seat! on the 2nd last row, 20-30mins before the movie starts! The best deal? I actually brought out hubby's Safra card and there's a discount for movie tickets! Instead of the usual S$11 per ticket for Sunday, we paid S$9 per movie ticket! :D Saved S$4. Heh.

By the way, movie's not that bad but too much swearing really. I felt Winnie kicking and punching me almost throughout the whole show. -.-'

Before the movie, I suddenly wanted to go get my brow threaded and went down to check if Browhaus had any slots. And yes they finally did! I finally manage to get to use my package which is kinda expired! I bought it in 2010 (paid half) and didn't have any chance to use it at all until today!! They are always forever booked with no slots at all even if I call or walk in to try to book 2weeks in advance!!

Does anyone knows if Browhaus can share package? I was told that they will help me extend for another 3-4 months and I still have about 3 uses (Brow + upper lip) or something, hoping I can get a friend to go with me or something, if not it'll be wasted leh. :(

Wow. I blogged this much!! If you're still reading this..

After movie, we decide to have Dinner and to be really honest there's really a huge variety of food there! Most of them are food I like and some shops I've seen them only in town area! Had a hard time choosing what to eat because there's simply too much choices to choose from..

Decide I didn't want to have any beef today because I just went to temple to pray and I thought I should abstain from beef for a while.. And we made the choice to have pasta at this Japanese restaurant which we've tried at their City Link Mall outlet. :)

The only place we eat pasta using chopsticks. :D

This TEA is Bitter and Super Expensive! I shall not be doped again!!

Realise hubby have slimmed down. He's starting to look really tired too. :(
Am I stressing him too much? :(

Our half and half pasta set. These 2 pastas, with 1 mini sized miso soup + 2 teas + Pizza came up to about $50+ . And I prefer the City Link Mall branch. Pasta's not so oily. :D

Funny plastic bag for pizza box.

Supposed to be for supper but now half of it is going to be next day's lunch. :p

Duck Pizza.. Not bad..

Surprise present from a love one.

She came over, cleaned up my place and left these for us.
She's always there for me and always doing things for me.. I feel like a terrible daughter. Why didn't I study harder and earn more money so she can live comfortably and not have to look after me even when I'm going to be a mum myself?? :(

This became supper. :D and a bunch of grapes. and fresh milk. heh.

Oh well. I guess this is the end of the post.
Hope you enjoy reading this long wordy post. :p

After months of moving in we finally got ..

A DVD player!

The reason why we finally got it.. it's because...
I want to watch this!
The Mentalist Season 1 to 3. :D

So I suddenly felt like a mountain tortoise (ignorant) because you know there's always an extra remote control when you buy a dvd player right? I found out that my dvd player's remote can control my TV too! :P

 So you see the smaller controller is for the DVD player and there's this White Box at the top right corner.. Those 4 buttons controls the TV! So I only need to use the DVD controller most of the time!

Feel kinda outdated already.
The last time I used a player, it was some lousy brand VCD player that we use to play Tom and Jerry cartoon for my brothers. heh.

Before the lousy VCD player, it was those tape recorder thingy I think it's called VHS or something? Still remember putting in tapes to record movies I like and kept re-watching them until the tape spoil and finally the machine spoil too. :P Think that's like year 2000 or something. 12 years have past and now the DVD player is only about a third of the size of the old tape player?

If only I could get my hands on those tapes again... Those precious movies. precious memories.. all thrown away already. :( oh wells.. At least now I've got my Mentalist DVDs to watch. :D

Why doesn't ebay allow sellers to leave buyers negative feedback? & Singapore's Speedpost don't do postal above 2kg?

So a "customer" asked for free registered post and we decide to make it a special deal and agree to post some collapsible boxes (free registered post) to the "buyer". However due to the post office saying they don't do registered or speedpost for 2+kg?? We decide to be nice and deliver the items. Even though it's raining we decide to take a cab down because we don't want to disappoint our customers.

Seeing since we delivered by hand, he asked to check the items. Being nice and all we decide to let him check and guess what? He says the item is not what he wants and wants a full refund. He either doesn't understand the word collapsible or he's taking us as idiots.

Gave him a full refund and wasted $26 cabbing to and fro on a rainy night.
Worse is ebay doesn't allow us to leave a negative feedback to warn all other sellers to be careful when dealing with customers like these.

Another thing is I don't get why the Singpost staff says speedpost doesn't deliver a parcel that's about 2+kg? I thought they do delivery of up to like 20-30kg? Oh well.. Guess today's a really really weird day for me. :(

My First Neon Orange Nail Polish

Received China Glaze's Neon Orange nail polish in my Bella Box for August and decide to test it out with Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails as base (which I received in my May Bella Box). Maybe orange's just not for me, the colour's a little too bright for my liking. :(

Comparing SH's Hard as Nails to the normal base coat I use, I still prefer my normal base coat. Don't really see the "hardener" effect. My nails still felt like it's going to break all the time. :(

Comparing China Glaze Neon colour to my other China Glaze colour, it seems that Neon's a tiny bit thicker, would prefer pastel colours or glittery ones. :D

Used OPI Silver Shatter on top of the Neon Orange and it instantly makes it less "刺眼" imo, should have tried black shatter though. :p

Unwanted present from my neighbor

Some background info: Defector and I stays on the 13th level of our block, there's 3 more level on top. One of our neighbors on the higher floors like to smoke at the living room window and many times the ash will fall and follows the wind into our house though our window. Which is the reason why our living room and bedrooms windows are 95% closed. Just last week we found another risk..

We received a surprise gift from our neighbor at around 11pm in our kitchen.
We've kept our kitchen windows 80% closed now, hoping we will not receive a bigger gift..

Now, anyone know who can I contact to return a gift?
