Random Notes#6/2014


1. I was at Orchard Road to settle some work duties and once I reached there , I immediately felt the Xmas mood! Too bad I didn't have the time to get out of the building to walk around the street in order to check out the decor. However, the decor at Orchard Central and Orchard Gateway malls are attractive! I will check out the lights and decors at Orchard Road soon!

Another one at Orchard Central too, which is besides Orchard Gateway
2. Somehow I felt a bit anxious about a potential vacation in a nearby country and kept asking my wifey if her sister has already booked it for us in JB, and I got an earful from my wifey... hahaha...  Too bad, she's in Singapore and I probably gotta wait for the weekend to confirm the trip. My SIL is a well-travelled lady and she's got a lot of 'lobangs' (contacts). If else, my plan B would be in Malaysia, probably go back to Ipoh and bring my parents to Cameron Highlands for a 3 day 2 nights stay or Pangkor Island. It's been a while since I have been there.

3. I have been  training for my 10km Standard Chartered Quarter-marathon lately after my weights workout. It will be held in 2 weeks time. My training is simple, I just continue to run 5KM as usual daily but may  increase slightly to 6km if possible. I will try to run in the morning from now onwards in order to get use to the morning marathon and that will be a challenge to me as I am not a morning person. Waking up at 6am or even 7am can be tough, thanks to my teleworking where I am not required to be in office all the time.

With all these trainings, I think there's no harm to reward myself with a Shokado Wazen Bento, which is my favourite and affordable bento at S$15.90. :) I think it's ok la...once in a blue moon ... :P


And, weekend is here with the school holidays! Have a good weekend!!

  4. muahaha!! I think not only your wife.. if I'm like a middleman and kept being told to ask another party on how thing is progressing, I will feel irritated also.. not that you cannot go and ask your SIL directly right?? and if too anxious about things, I'll rather do it myself than have to wait for other people.. :)
