Customs House

Wednesday, October 20, 2010


Last night we went for a going-away dinner at Proccaci with close friends.

They will be uprooting to Bangkok extremely soon so we wanted to catch up and enjoy some good food and wine before they leave our Lion city.

Located at the very romantic Customs House in the CBD area - the night view was as spectacular as the food.

We have been to Proccaci several times in the afternoon where sometimes our friend - who owns the place - would join us for a chat, but this is the first time we are there for dinner.

We had a lovely bottle of Chianti to go with dinner, it was both reasonably-priced and easy to drink.
We liked it so much that we ordered a crate for our wine chiller!

Sometimes I enjoy having a glass of red to wind down after a hectic day at work.
I dun party anymore, but a drink or two at dinner is something that I have been picking up in the recent years.
And it doesnt even have to be wine : my favourite drink is still beer (with ice) becoz I will always be a kopitiam girl at heart.

Our Starters.
The Calamari is to die for!

Beef with White Truffle.

Mozzarella.. my favourite!

Then we had our main courses.

Sirloin Steak.

Angel Hair Pasta with Prawns

Veal Shank.

After the hearty meal, we adjourned outside to enjoy the breeze and take a look at the view.

MBS was directly opposite.

Desserts to end off the already sweet night.
My favouriteeee molten chocolate cake! Dark warm chocolate oozes out the moment u cut into.. heavenly!

I will miss our friends, but thankfully BKK is just a plane hop away!

Take care everyone, tomorrow Lover coming over and we going to watch Eat,Pray Love!

On a private note - Thank you dear all for your warm wishes and kind support!

It has been quite a journey, being together day in day out with someone for nearly 4 years is no joke.
Sometimes we argue and we fight like any normal couple: but at the end of the day we both know that we are in this together for the long-term.

People tell me "Oh this is something you have been waiting for" or "Finally he proposed!" but actually we have talked about this many a time and we both have a mutual understanding that the day will come where we will decide to officiate our relationship.

So actually when he did propose, I wasnt that all surprised - coz I have always knew that he would.. someday.

I was more surprised at the WAY he proposed.. but when Jungle Boy wants to do something, he sure damn is going to get it done!
But thats another story for another day.

So I thank you everyone, from the bottom of my heart.

But rest assured - I am still plain ol' me, with or without the ring.

God bless.


Jolie: Dear Jo, thank u! And did u manage to find a good BB cream in the end? :)

Pauline: Ure welcome babe!

Reader: Yes dear, I use Laura Mercier Mineral powder and u can find some mineral powder from major cosmetic brands like Elizabeth Arden, MAC, Clinique and Maybelline. U really have to try it out and see which one u most prefer! :D

Reader: I drink more water, use my toner on it religiously and hope for the best. LOL. But I dun really have pimples so when I do I just let it fade by itself. If I really tak boleh tahan, then I will apply pimple cream. :p

Fanzie: Omg ahahahhaha and I thought that my story with LBT will be the last thing anyone would want to listen to! :p

keira: Thanks babe! I should have cut my hair earlier and saved all the shampoo money! hehhe!

Mocha_Lover: U can always transfer some loose powder into smaller portable pots for touch up but I like to use my ANNA SUI glitter powder (its purple) or my ZA compact. Its the best!

Scary Cat: If I am stranded on a island.. I will bring my La Mer moisturiser. Its really great for dry skin (as I think I will have if Im on an island.. and most islands are in tropical countries.. kekeke!) and the beauty item (pls tell me I can bring ONE more item) will be my FALSE LASHES laaa! I am nothing without them.. they are my LIFE! :p
I enjoyed this question! :D

Mac_Fries: Yoga is more like a way of life, it teaches u to calm ur senses and take note of ur breathing.
With yoga, u realise that some moves may seem easy but without concentration - u cant do it at all! It is the same with life.. sometimes we tend to forget abt the small details. :)
Pilates is more of training ur core muscles, alot of pilates students have a bad back due to having a weak core (lifestyle, diet etc) and pilates strengthens it and many become pain-free after regular pilates classes. If u have a back problem u can try pilates but pls always let ur instructor know if u have any conditions before u start.

bebe: PRACTISE! I took many years to perfect it and til now I cant say its 100% good! But I use a tweezer and I find that it really helps lotsa!!! :D

Jane: Dear jane, cohabitation is wrong but I have never said that Im a perfect Christian. :)
Im human just like u are, and I am not an exception.

ping: Great to hear from u again dearest! Oooh xinjiang! China? I think it should be lovely!!! Happy for u.. hope to hear from u soon! xoxo

elie: Thank u sweets! But my life is far from perfect.. pls dun be mistaken.
I am exactly like everybody else and I go thru good times n bad times like any human being.
The only thing is that I am a pretty positive person so I try to take everything in my stride.
Life is simple, really.
N when u are contented - U can find ur happiness. :D
