bak kut teh and other things



last wed. bummed abit with jean @ hers after work, while we decided if we were gonna do the doofdoof @ liquid. i was beat, clarry was beat, and lokey was somewhere out there. jean was still up for it, and well... we two chickadees went on ahead anyway.

halfway there, we passed some bak kut teh places and that planted the seedling in our heads. we got to liquid, parked, got our drink card, phoned some peeps and found out that everyone's piked.

so off we went gladly, to havelock road for yummies in peppery herbal soup. :)

that was a much better choice indeed. my fave bak kut teh stall used to be at circular road, that little place with a triangular plan layout at the fork of roads behind boat quay. then i went away for 4 damned years and the place has closed down by the time i got back. not a single soul seems to know if they've moved, to where, or if they've simply shut down. and so, havelock road is my next best choice for kidneys. i love kidneys. they're pretty well done @ havelock.

we spent the night verbal diarhea-ing about old times. :) :) :)

i've not had a chance to write since the LDN incidents. all i wanted to say is, my heart goes out to those suffering - both there and elsewhere. it's nerve-wrecking worrying about loved ones overseas. i hope they don't ever think of bombing melbourne. *touch wood*

misc.

coupla things.

the bag i promised lynne i'd put up a pic of. here it is. :) notice the gunmetal parts, no silver. beautiful. i dislike silver.

bought it without a second thought. sigh. i don't need it, really. the combination of black leather and gunmetal gets me everytime.

next up, i was the lucky recipient of some little pressies from melissa. she brought them all the way back from japan for me. :) some pretty blue trinkets (with gold clasps), and a new friend for my mobile totoro! i nearly had a fit (a good one) when i saw it. original ghibli approved, just like my little one. THANKS BABE!

connected with the ground

@ east coast last night.

i must say, i haven't fallen in ages. feels quite alright actually. except that my left butt hurts and my elbow took a scraping.



met up with esther and yuming for a good workout at east coast. having known these babes for awhile now, this was actually the first time we've managed to get together for a skate. t'was excellent fun... gotta do this more! weekeday nights for sure!

so the spill happened when esther lost her balance and crashed headlong into me from behind on the left. i barely knew what was going on and found myself already on the ground. we both sat there for abit and laughed at ourselves, before dragging our sore bums to the nearby pavilion for a fag.

yes, fagging while blading is bad. very bad.

yuming led us on to a wicked little stretch of road which hasn't been properly setup for the public yet (no lights), leading towards changi and way beyond the last jetty where KA and i usually stop at. it was a beautiful night to be skating on a quiet path in almost total darkness... with girltalk, giggles and laughing outbursts to keep us going.

we headed back to the food centre for a well-deserved feast. i was too pooped to snap pics of the food, but rest assured i will snap them next time. yuming's choice of oyster omelette was absolutely fantastic. i reckon they add shrimp paste or something to it. satays were munched down, along with fried bee hoon.

we also had bonus entertainment happening nearby. some dudes were climbing a tree and shaking it to try and get some kid's shoes down from the branches. certainly amusing to watch.

yes, more east coast adventures need to happen more frequently! and less aching muscles, in time! :)
