Stock take

I am so tired after stock taking...

I need a break!

Guess the recent work load is having its impact on me.

I am beginning to feel tired, physically, mentally and emotionally!

Chrome Accessories

Have you been yearning to give your car a make over?

Trying to make your cars stand out from the rest on the road?

Well, its time to try adding some chrome accessories for classy look! Using chrome trim is an easy way to achieve that new look and it can be so user friendly that you can do it yourself.

The chrome trims are either crafted from top-quality stainless steel (to prevent rusting) or ABS plastic (well known for its high impact strength) and backed with auto-grade 3M adhesive for a quick “stick on” installation.

So why wait? Get online today!

Anyway, the easiest parts to start for a novice would be the windscreens and here are some tips to share with you on installing the chrome trim yourself:

Always remember that before you begin, make sure the trim fits your windshield. You won’t want to discover that the trim does not fit your windshield and start to panic when you are in the midst of adhering it!

Upon confirmation that the trim fits, place the chrome trim around the perimeter of the windshield. You don't want to peel the wax paper off the tape and then not have the chrome trim be the correct size.

Try to apply the trim on a warm day, as on wet days, the moisture can affect the stickiness of the adhesives.

Have fun!

Farewell dinner for CV


We had a farewell dinner for our colleague, CV, today!

Must say that after some serious consideration, we finally manage to decide on the place, some western eatery at Sembawang Village!

The place was really empty except for us, really looked like we booked the whole place!!
We knew what the reason was when the food was being served: lousy food!!!!

Raw, uncooked bloody beef being served as medium rare...

Expensive finger food that is all frozen convenience food!

Expensive drinks!

Nevertheless, it was still a farewell dinner for our colleague.. and I wish her all the best!

A slow walk...

Sent my car into the work shop today for a check up...

So had to walk back as no one was free to pick me up from the work shop nearby...

Came across this scene near Sembawang Canal...

Pretty green enough to chase the Monday blues away!

Madonna - Celebration

The perfect song to chase the Monday Blues away!!!!!




Don't you think Mama Madonna still looks as good as ever?

Foot Ball Fever...


I went LOLed when I saw this in my email...

Now with the World Cup season, it's perhaps times like these that women appreciate football, or rather the players more!

Ps.. note where the handle of the taxi just happens to be!

Weekend finally...

Finally...

It's the weekend.. Time to unwind!

Another payment from Mylikes

Getting paid to tweet.... is not that bad afterall...

Spare me the sleaze...

I just don't understand why my colleagues are so engrossed in going to that filthy KTV at Geylang Lorong 13....

Good wholesome fun?

Team bonding?

You people are plain disgusting!

To WJ: Spending so much money and time at such places... when you can probably clear up more work and stop others from clearing your shit!

To A: You should be spending more time with your family especially your mum just got discharged from hospital from cancer, instead of gallivanting at such filthy places...

The final straw came when one of those filthy girls called up... don't you all ever feel ashamed!

If you don't, I do!

The small misunderstanding...

Sometimes, I just do not why simple actions can be misunderstood..

The mere passing of a file over... can bring about so many implications...

The reason why I could not wait for dinner!

Yes, the main reason why I could not wait for dinner!!!

Dinner with my pals at Straits Kitchen located at Hyatt Hotel!!

The variety of food was not as impressive as the Carousel which we usually frequent, but what was the most enjoyable was the company of fun, wacky friends!!!

We celebrated the birthday for our diva... and to lure her out unknowingly after she arrived back from KL the day before... I had to use the excuse of going on a charity dinner... for BREAST CANCER AWARENESS to get her out...

Lo and Behold, we all had a good laugh after she had the surprise there!

It really has been some time since I really enjoyed myself, especially with the recent workload that I am facing...

I can't wait for dinner tonight

OO...
i really can't wait!

To chase the Monday blues...



What better way to chase away the Monday blues then to do it on a Sunday night over warm chocolate pudding at Buttercake n Cream?

Enjoyed the rich and sinful chocolate with my friend while downing Hooegarden...

Wonderful!

What's that?

Hmm....

What's that on the base tray of a bento box?

Has your curiosity been aroused?

Check out the answer and more pics on my other blog, Fishy Passion!

Service standards of Sakae


I'd always thought that Sakae Sushi served really standard Japanese food...

But I was really dismayed by their service and food quality today!!!

Went to their Causeway Point outlet today after work, looking for a quick bite...

Ordered our main course from the waiter after looking at the menu...

And the same guy then came back again to take our side orders a while later, so I ordered chawanmushi (steamed egg)....

This was my main course, the premium set meal...
and if you already notice, there is already a steamed chawanmushi in the set. It's pretty obvious that the waiter was just merely taking orders for the sake of doing so!
The worst, was their cod fish, gindara, the whole thing was not only fishy, but the texture had totally changed to pure mushiness!

Told a waitress politely and she did not take any action!

Told the manager and his reaction was pretty slow. What I wanted was just an explanation and an investigation of why the cod was bad... not even an exchange or discount... But the service standard of Sakae Sushi has really disappointed me..

If I have to dine at a conveyor sushi at Causeway Point, Ichiban Sushi is still my choice!

Its the Weekend...

Finally.. the weekend is here!!!!

And its Fathers' Day Weekend....!

Good Bye... Cafe D Orient...

Sometime not too long ago, in September to be exact, I blogged about the bad service I had at this Hongkong Cafe near my place, read my post titled Changing Impressions...


Was walking back home after I parked my car... and saw this:
what used to be the pretty brightly lit Cafe D Orient is now vacant, with a PropNex sign that says 'For Rent'!

Looks like my initial impression of the F&B outlet is indeed accurate!

Getting a new wireless router.

Noticed that my wireless n router has been giving me technical problems recently!

It's been years since I've last gotten mine free of charge when I upgraded my usage plan with the internet service provider.

So right now, I think I have got to decide whether to continue the plan for my wireless mobile broadband or the fixed line broad band!
