Darting times...

I don't really play darts but was introduce to the game recently and it's really so much difference from I thought. Unlike those sharp pin which can hurt you and thrown onto the wooden board, it was more of an arcade game with different themes.  It calculates the points for you, there are sounds when you hit it especially the bull eyes or triple and double rings. You can play over the net to challenge your mates! I saw one guy was playing against a Japanese who resided in Japan and that was so amazing. 

The dart board was made of plastic with full of tiny holes to hold the darts while the tip of the darts are made of plastic and safer!! It's quite an affordable game where it cost only a dollar for one game and the darts are affordable too. I just bought a set which cost me around S$50 with a casing. Well, I am sure there might be expensive ones but the set that I bought was good enough for me, and it's heavy too. The heavier it is, the more accurate it seems but it all boils down to skills and consistency, just like bowling or archery. However, I gotta change the tips since it is made of plastic after some games as well as  the flights ( the wings at the back). However, all these are very affordable as it cost a few dollars for a big packet!


My "Snow Ice" darts .. looks fabulous right ? 
It's great to have a game over beer or coffee to wind down after work especially on Fridays. And, yes, I found a new hobby though I still run, workout but play lesser badminton now.

Your Truly in action :) 
And, I was at Aston Restaurant in SG and ordered an Sirloin Steak for dinner after a game last Friday. It's been a while since I had steak and loving it! :)


Have a great week!

Douzo Japanese Dining ....

I found a new Japanese Restaurant in JB and decided to try it. Located at Permas Jaya, it was opposite the well-known Niyumaru restaurant with some other Japanese restaurants around. Somehow, I love the food there and decided to blog it especially the big portions of the food. We can hardly finished all the food especially the compliment Salmon Nabe which is just RM1. Oh.. the promotion ended last Sunday but I heard they will have RM1 sushi promotion. I will definitely go back there again since I love sushis!

My kids also enjoyed a scoop each of Macha ice-cream and I guess we all have a good time here. Have a great weekend!

Last Friday ....

I took a day off last Friday to be with my family on my birthday. Well, nothing fancy going on as my kid wanted to attend his badminton coaching in the evening while my little princess had her ballet too. Thus, we only went out at night for a nice dinner, while the day was spent relaxing at home as well as checking out on holiday tours for year-end. I tried to make it a once a year oversea tour in order to see the world and wind down. I still prefers to go to places with winter but I guess due to a tight budget, I may have to go somewhere nearer (and hot) this year. Well, I will blog on it after the trip, and if possible, after my standard chartered marathon. Oh, I am still deciding whether to sign up this year due to lack of running partners as well as the large amount of crowd last year. It was very hot too, running the half-marathon during SCMS 2015.

Back to my birthday dinner, we decided to go Korean and ended up at Hans Korea BBQ in Taman Molek. It's spacious over there and clean, as well as there are 2-3 pokestops around! hahaha... I also managed to catch the 'Weezer' there with a CP of 1180. Back to my dinner, we just order their Set A which comes  with an assortment of Korean delicacies which is free-flow and a miso soup. Since I love the Ginseng Chicken Soup, I order a bowl too.

Free-flow of dishes

Miso Soup that comes with the set

And my favourite Ginseng Chicken soup
It was a lot for the five of us as we also asked for refill of some of the mini dishes. With rice and soup, it was very filling. I like this place as well as the food and will likely come again!

Have a blessed mid-week.

Back to Hard Rock cafe and pokemons..

I had my birthday celebrations last weekend and it was the second consecutive year I was back to Hard Rock Cafe in Resort World Sentosa for a lunch birthday celebration with some of my close colleagues. Unlike last year. I requested my colleague not to announce it to Hard Rock where they will get the entire crowd to wish me and sang a Happy Birthday song as well as a free ice-cream. Ok, not for this time as I felt kinda embarrassed, with the entire floor of the restaurant cheering for me...hahaha. We ordered the usual stuff from the set lunch of the day (since I am buying ... must be set la... hahaha... ) and an extra nacho plate.


Love the Nacho plate ... Lots of ingredients added to it!

A Aglio Olio pasta for me since I got a sore throat then ... love the bacon!

A Haggen Dazz ice-cream for dessert. 
The set lunch comes around S$12.90 per person with free flow drinks. After that, it's a walk around RWS and pokemon catching time, since there are rare pokemons there!

Have a great week, folks!

Run & Raisin' 2016 ...

This was my next run after the night run, Sundown Half Marathon, on 30th May. Well, though this is a 10KM run, I didn't really train for it since the last run. The most I ran was 5KM with my colleagues weekly and due to that, my timing for this run is almost like my first 10KM run back in 2013! LOL ... Anyway, this was a really fun and easy run at the Gardens By The Bay and it was the second time I participated in. The route was almost the same except this year was easier, where we don't have to run up the slope around Marina Barrage. I did enjoy the run a lot after doing a few HM previously, at least it ended earlier. And, it's pokemons catching time after that! Well, there were lots of rare pokemons around Gardens By The Bay and Pikachu was sighted too, though I didn't walk farther up to search for it! 

I was early with my colleagues and there was not many people then. I didn't really sleep enough and I was kinda tired after the run!!

Oh..I love the finisher's medal this year, so much nicer than the typical rounded one of last year.

The other side of the medal.

As usual, I always like to take a pic of MBS whenever I was at GBTB.

The carnival begins after the run, which is just part of the fund raising event. There were other stuffs going on that day.

Go-Kart organised by Yahoo!

Lots of booths around with sweaty runners walking around .,.LOL

It was a beautiful Saturday morning!

Folks having a good time with the games there too!
The 10KM run was the longest as well as competitive too with prizes, while they also have a 5KM fun run and a 2.5KM family run. Another thing I enjoyed of the run was there are lesser runners compared to those major runs, thus it was not so crowded!

Yours Truly here in action ... 
After the run, I had a bowl of beef ramen with shallot pancake, before heading back to JB.

Have a wonderful mid-week! :)
