November is gonna be a good month. I can feel it already. 17 more days till I jet off again!
Ehhh actually I'm still in slight disbelief that we're left with 2 more months to 2017. LIKE WHAT. Can slow down please?
Okay lemme update about my weekend before I forget all about it. Lolol.
Saturday started off with me waking up around noon (omg sleep in weekends are DA BEZ) and meeting ZL at 2pm to cross the causeway to JB!
Decided to bus there from Kranji and the queue at the customs was insane. We only entered JB at 4 plus??? But it didn't feel that long honestly because we were talking and he had his trusty Fun Run to keep him occupied. Don't ask me what's with his fascination with that game because idk. Hahahaha. 😂
Had a light lunch at Sakae Sushi after walking around City Square Mall for a bit.
Uhh I haven't been to JB much so City Square Mall still feels quite new to me. Hahaha. My second time there only!
Actually…. I haven't had Sakae Sushi for the longest time. It's pretty okay leh? They have mentaiko and aburi options for their sushi.
Better than I expected!! And it's so cheap. 39rm for 4 items and 2 cups of hot tea!
And I got my cracked tempered glass protector replaced too. Check out my sexy new phone so nice and shiny! ✨✨✨
You can barely tell that there's a layer of protector over it because it's so awesome. It covered the entire surface including the edges. I swear when the guy pasted the protector over both of us were in awe. 😮😮
Our faces were literally like this because the quality is so much better than my previous one which didn't even adhere well at the edges.
The previous one cost me $15 and the sides cracked so easily! Within a week of getting it. Ugh.
This one isn't cheap tbh, it's 80rm which is expensive by JB standards for sure. But it would be much more expensive if I were to get another of the same quality in SG. Because this protector covers the screen all the way till the curved edges, it will be less prone to cracks too! So the hp shop guy claims la. But so far it's living up to the claims. Hahaha.
Def recommend this!!!!!
I was super psyched to change my protector to this but uhh this ZL x100 happier than me. Hahahaha. Kept showing it to everyone after we got back to SG.
He also changed his screen protector as well! Apparently it's even harder to find a decent one for his S7 since the edges are slightly curved so all the tempered glass ones don't stick entirely. It's so annoying to look at, especially because I'm damn particular about such stuff.
I don't have a photo of how his old screen looked like but apparently it's either he gets screen protectors which only covers the main display screen or just deal with it not sticking to the sides nicely.
So the hp shop guy recommended him this silicone protector which is also awesome-but-not-nearly-as-awesome-as-mine. Hahahah.
60rm for his!! Also very worth it imo! No more ugly edges wheeeee. 🎉
So perfect now his Samsung lolol. I have a funny story about his Samsung to share, come to think of it. Later!!
The silicone one is a lot harder to paste but the hp shop guy did a pretty solid job!
This apparently is crack resistant and can filter out 99% of blue light. Wowoww.
And I remembered to take photos of the packaging so that I can share it with you guys!
Really 80rm. Around 26sgd!
Took note of the price for once. Just because it's so amazing I HAD TO share! I hardly ever rave about screen protectors one la… Cause most of them are the standard kind..?
This is how the shop looks like… I don't remember the directions BUT I took a photo of the name card. Hahahaha. Wait lemme go find it.
HERE HERE HERE.
This is the very pro guy who did such a great job of pasting on the screen protectors for us. His recommendation really damn on point so please go look for him!!!
Okay gym time!!
I'm back. Gym was intense today. Hahahah. Okay so after getting our awesome screen protectors on, we went for some foot massage.
Don't ask me where because I was a blind follower. Lol.
And a funny story happened here…
So our 2 masseurs are from China and obviously seeing that ZL and I are Chinese, they spoke to us in Mandarin.
Unbeknownst to them, my dearest ZL actually only understood 20% (??) of whatever they were saying the entire time. His Mandarin urmmm not so good la. Hahaha. But anyway. I didn't know that he was responding without understanding until he texted me. 😂 He was so good at pretending to understand and even I couldn't tell!
So okay I continued to entertain them and talked to them la.
I was using my phone during the massage and one of the masseur was like "美女，你用的是iPhone7加吗" The direction translation is "pretty girl, are you using iPhone 7+?"
You need to know that…. Most people from China use 帅哥 (handsome guy) 美女 (pretty girl) veryyyyyy loosely. To them it's like Mr and Miss.
So okay moving on. Then he asked ZL if he was using 三星, which is the Chinese name for Samsung.
Afterwards when we were having dinner, ZL told me he felt that the masseur was trying to flirt with me (by calling me a pretty girl) and also the fact that he said that ZL was using a three star phone was a bit rude.
I was damn tickled by this??? Because 三星 directly translated to English does mean three stars. But the masseur wasn't being condescending either because it legit is the name of Samsung la.
The differences in cultures can be quite funny sometimes. LOL.
So I was telling ZL that when we go to China together….. He better not leave my side. I don't think he can survive there with his extremely basic Mandarin. Lolol.
DINNER WAS SO GOOD.
Again, I don't know where exactly we had dinner at. I think it's this place called hmm Sentosa if I'm not wrong.
It's sorta like a hawker centre. They have many stalls within the place! Not sure which ones we ordered from because all I did was sit there and wait for the food. 😬
OYSTERS WERE DAMN FRESH.
Ahhhhh dis my favvvvvvv.
Salted egg squid!! Still as good as the first time we had it together.
The squid was not rubbery at all and the sauce was yummmmz. Damn bomb.
Really need to start working out more to shed some of this relationship weight. Lolol.
Sting ray was so tender and so fresh and so cheap omg I'm never ever having sting ray in SG again!!
Dinner came up to 78rm for all these that we ordered. Plus drinks and rice. SO WORTH. The things in JB are so mind boggling cheap I cannot take it. Lol.
Made an impromptu trip to the dog farm the next morning when we woke up.
This golden retriever stole my heart. 💓
He insisted on putting his paw (damn heavy btw) on my leg/arm when I was rubbing his belly. Damn manja can????!
SO CUTE. You're gonna hear me repeat this so many times from here on. Hahahaha.
BABY HUSKIES OMG
This handsome dog is called Truffles and his owner kindly allowed us to pat/carry/take photos with him! ☺️
I loveeeee this photo hehe 😍 ZL tried to carry it but failzxz. Truffles is no Xiaobai. Hahaha. Xiaobai can pick up effortlessly with one hand please.
Rough-housing which looks damn scary to me because Xiaobai confirm cannot survive this kind.
So pretty! Think this is a corgi x shetland?
Haiiiiii you are damn majestic omg 👑
Is it lion????? The mane is damn fierce.
This goldie super naughty!!! Bit ZL's shorts and didn't wanna let go.
Goldie no chill.
But after a while it started to nua around and we could pet it. Heh.
I was so reluctant to leave.
This weekend I also had brunch with the sisters @jongsy and @jessaiee!
Always good to spend some quality time with them. Especially since the little one is staying in hall now and I hardly get to see her face over the weekends sometimes.
Brought them to Super Loco since both of them haven't been. I love this place so much and it hasn't disappointed me!
Portrait mode on 7+.
Yes I'm still slightly obsessed LOL.
This is my must-order every single time.
Seemed like a lot of food but we devoured them all. Hahaha.
7+ is awesome.
I don't even worry about forgetting to bring my camera out anymore! My phone can save the day. ✌🏻️
Monday saw me rushing around for a few meetings before meeting ZL for dinner. Somebody had an off day thanks to Deepavali and thanks to his off day I got to meet him again.
Popped by his friend's shop Katto for dinner! If you frequent Fusionopolis you might have seen this shop or even tried it before.
LOVE THE WALL MURAL. So nicely done. I really like how they did up their interior. Everything is so cohesive with their branding!
Love spaces with natural light.
Food's right up my alley! 👌🏻✨
Sashimi is reallyyyy fresh because they directly import them from Japan. And I love that I get to choose half salad and half brown rice for my base! My favourite was the grilled baby corn, the yakitori and the classic shoyu salmon sashimi. So good.
It was a really filling bowl for just $12.90.
I'm officially jealous of people working in that area now. If I work there I'll be eating this at least 3 times a week I think. Hahaha.
My heart feels so happy and full from the semi long weekend I've had.
If only every weekend was like that. But owell. Work's good too!
Will be doing up my November favourites post soon, so look out for that! 😉
