simple pleasures  
on a cold autumn night, bliss is...

~ a tiny heater blowing delicious little heatwaves at my cold, cold feet.

~ a glass of royal honey choya (japanese plum wine) on the rocks, next to me.

~ the warmth of my ibook under my palms and fingers.

~ listening to a love song sung by an ex-boyfriend, in my itunes. which made me smile.

~ smses from the best friend in singapore.

~ recharging my international calling card over the phone using my credit card, and getting 3000+ minutes instead of the supposed 1000+ for just 10bux (this can't be right but i'm not complaining... ).

~ wearing my new white knit coat out just now for a quick supermarket run.

~ proving to myself that i still cook steak the way i used to. i just experimented with a simple dinner for myself. i wanted to do this before i cook the scotch fillets that doc and i bought, probably during the week.



it doesn't look like much, because it was 11pm and not the time for a big meal. it was also an experiment, so i didn't bother with garnishes and pretties. i used a cheap steak diane cut, which isn't as tender as scotch fillet for sure, but i'm satisfied with the results. with pan-fried chips, jv-style - butter, garlic, salt and pepper, done till lightly golden brown. spinach with garlic and remains of sauce from cooking the steaks.

happy muffin, over and out.

dj! i should marry you home man! ;)

and how come you are getting 3000+ mins??? haha, even the calling card favours on you. :) and it IS sooo much more worthwhile to call backies sg hor???

lol! you're a girl and you can't marry me. :) besides, you're supposed to marry mr charles ng!

i dunno if it's because i've used up 1000+ minutes really quickly and they've put me on some sort of bonus scheme? or, it could just be a fuck-up. :)
Little Miss Sunshine.tiffanyx on March 18th, 2007 11:50 pm (UTC)
it'll be fun if i can! ;)))

how long/short it took ya to finish up the 1000+ minutes? daybreak calling card?
JV: summerdrag0nette on March 19th, 2007 02:24 am (UTC)
no, some 'cool' phonecard. the brand is literally 'cool'. 10bux from chinatown, can recharge. maybe they give more minutes through recharge as a loyalty incentive? i dunno.

i took exactly 2 months. but didn't call singapore very freely. i guess with 3000+ minutes now, i can. i'll probably call my friends and family everyday! :)
Little Miss Sunshine.tiffanyx on March 19th, 2007 02:27 am (UTC)
LOL. yea maybeee.

but 1000+ minutes are REALLY alot. whats more now you have 3000+!

you can even call some random friends also. hur hurrr.
