Random Notes#7/2014 ...

1. Since the iPhone 6 was launched in Singapore in September, I always wanted to get one for my wifey as her older iPhone 4S, which she used for almost 4 years, is calling it a day. However, I am only eligible to recontract my line in November and since 1 November, I have been trying hard to check out the stocks at the local telco but the phones were always out of stocks. I continued to try for weeks till yesterday where I finally got it, and lucky too where I got the second last set. I cannot choose the colour as there's only silver left but then , silver looks good to me. Somehow, I preferred the smaller iPhone 6 than 6+ as I felt the latter is too big. My wifey too, she loves a smaller phone and I am glad I got this for her.
Still in the box and wrapped
2. I was at Orchard Road again today for my medical screening and managed to catch a glimpse of the Xmas street decors. Somehow, it doesn't look impressive to me but maybe it looks great at night when they lit up the lights. I only check out a portion of Orchard Road.

The pathway leading to Paragon mall

Ngee Ann City at the opposite

A Xmas tree at Paragon

Another decor at the outside of Paragon

Tang's decor at the entrance
 3. I guess I am not going overseas for my year end vacation due to the peak season but will try to book early next year for cheaper options. Anyway, planning to take leaves in Dec and almost deciding my vacation plans. haha... It seems so difficult for me to decide this year, probably due to some distractions like my kid's compulsory 2 weeks tuition at his school, where I was informed last minute.

4. It was a relaxing afternoon after my medical screening as I went to coffee club in Wisma Atria for some bites before heading to the gym. I love the slice raspberry cake and cappuccino. I chose this place because it was less crowded and thus I can wind down after my medical tests, which was a staffs' benefit from my company. Glad that my ECG, Tonometry, Chest X-ray and prostate scan are fine, I am still awaiting for my blood test report, which was done 2 weeks ago.

The cake really looks good and delicious

First time at Coffee Club and find that their coffee is good.
It's Friday again and wish you guys a great and relaxing weekend! :)
