I list down all the events this week and the next as a reminder of the fun times I've had and will continue to have, during my last month here in Singapore :) And also because I am a freak when it comes to structure. (In fact I created an Excel spreadsheet for my packing list!)
Monday (05/01) - Spent bumming around at home. Well, not exactly, because I whipped up pasta for the first time ever! Quite a progress for me, you know. Because prior to this, my idea of cooking equated to pouring hot water over a cup of instant noodles. Mum has been teaching me to unleash my inner domestic not-so-goddess in the kitchen, in a bid to make sure that I can cook some basic dishes before I leave.
Tuesday - Went back to NUS with Peiwen to collect my exchange programme award letter as well as pay for my plane ticket. (I am travelling by Thai Airways!! Good God, I hope those protestors don't start all that catastrope at the airport once more because I am due to transit at the Suvarnabhumi Airport en route to Frankfurt) Peiwen and I are indeed excited for our trip, and we are going to be roomies! Our first time staying in a hostel too.
And afterwards I caught up with dear Nadia, and we checked out Bugis Village. And I found many clothes that are being sold at blogshops, but even so, a good majority of them are even higher-priced than those online! Got rather disillusioned ... guess I will stick to blogshopping instead.
Wednesday - Met Van and Michelle for lunch, followed by coffee and finally, the Twilight movie. Those girls are my council buoys :) I feel like I got closer to Van only after our JC days but hey, all's good. And Twilight ... ahh, needless to say I fell in love with Edward Cullen. His character though (think brooding, melancholic hotness - bloody sexy!), not his looks. Methinks he was cuter back in Harry Potter though.
Thursday - Went out with Beetsma and Qiling to celebrate the latter's 21st! Oh, what would I do if I hadn't met them in German class back in Year 1, Semester 1!
And it was followed by dinner with dearest cousins. Sitting at a coffee shop, drinking teh peng and then hanging out under the void deck are the most liberating activities, actually.
Friday - Another round of Cooking Lessons 101 by the Mother, and then dinner with Khee Hoon, Osha and Soon Ying. Secondary school friends whom I have not seen in 34289 donkey years!
Saturday - Lunch/dinner with Jacqueline. And maybe a session with the boys from the band too.
Sunday - Lil' bro teaching me how to cook baked pasta!
