Treasure Hunting

Didn't exactly dig up gold, but found a couple of good stuff over the past two days.

Met up with Hairol yesterday and went to Heeren for dinner. Was basically bored stiff at home so jio-ed him out. Didn't planned on getting anything until I saw what was on HMV's Mega Movie and Music Sale. It wasn't really that attractive until we through the sub-$10 section. That section was full of treasures! Stuff that I've always wanted to buy but HMV had been charging obscenely for them. Seems like HMV was trying to clear the stock. I only saw the cds accidentally they were the only copy left except for Dirty Vegas. CDs that I've bought: The Chemical Brothers' Surrender and Come With Us, Dirty Vegas' One and Voodoo Child's Baby Monkey. All four of them for less than forty dollars, what a steal 😀

As for today, went shopping at IKEA and queensway with Kenny, Weiting and Wenjun. Was intending to buy the Repli Cat at queensway but I couldn't find the colour that I like. Guess I'll go to the Puma Boutique at Marina Square to get them. Couldn't get the shoe I wanted but found something else interesting.

Printed on the tee: "Legalize [image of a pack of chewing gum]. Chewing Gum Movement. You Got Your Casino. I Want My Chewing Gum."

What a way to make a statement. If chewing gum is still not legalised by the next GE, I think I'll wear it to the polling station. (Provided my constituency is not a walkover again…)


Stuffing Myself Stupid Part Deux

Last week, I wrote that I went to Sakura for pre-ATEC Stage II preparation. Yesterday, the people from Scout Platoon Bunk 2 less Xiong Yao plus Desmond from Bunk 1 went for post-ATEC Stage II celebration at Baccarat. Great food there, the seafood are very fresh and basically for the fish and chawamushi, the moment they put it out, it’ll be gone within a few minutes. Having two buffet dinners might not be healthy for me, but hey, after starving for four days at Lim Chu Kang, who could resist?


Food! Glorious Food!

Went to Sakura at Orchard yesterday to celebrate Rain‘s birthday. A couple of us polled our money together and Christabel bought a Swatch voucher for her.

Nice international buffet served there, seems to be much better than the one I went to at Toa Payoh with my platoon guys. The dim sum there is very nice, could be due to the fact that I’ve been eating lousy lor mai kai and siew mai in my camp’s cookhouse… Had a great meal there, basically stuffing myself stupid with good food in preparation for the upcoming four-day ATEC stage 2 outfield.

Went to Acid Bar next after dinner. Got seated in the darkest part of the bar… It was so dark that all of us had a hard time reading the menu… They must had saved a lot on electricity bills… Had a great time there chatting about what had happened the past few months since we met and also Daniel’s oversea trip to Taiwan. Envy that guy… Get to go Taiwan while I got shipped off to Brunei, land of the humongous cicadas. Saw Peihao there also, with his ‘gal friend’, heh. Been a while since I saw him, told me that he’s a driver down in Sembawang Camp and that he’s thinking of continuing his poly education after army. Good for him, hopefully, he doesn’t dropout like last time.


V For Very Cheem

Watch V For Vendetta yesterday with Weiting and two other Mortar guys. A very nice movie except that V kept speaking in shakespearean… Which is very hard to keep up even with the chinese subtitles… The movie takes place in the dystopic future with a totalitarian regime in England very much like the Orwellian 1984 and Nazi Germany where people's life are constantly monitored, secret police prowling the streets after curfew and concentration camps. The movie's protaganist, V, modelled himself after Guy Fawkes (complete with a Guy Fawkes mask) of the Gunpowder Plot and seeks to topple the regime by igniting a popular uprising and also blowing up a couple of buildings in the process.

Went to Hooters at Clarke Quay next for booze. Not really expensive but its not cheap also… And the buffalo platter seems to be a little soggy… The only thing special is that the jugs are *big* (*nudge*nudge*wink*wink*)
