Our 1 year anniversary + his birthday celebration!!!

This is gonna be a HUGE post.

Since updates have been relatively slow on my blog, I figured it would only be fair to flood you guys with happy awesome pictures now. I’ve been incredibly busy recently..

Sam was in Singapore again a couple of days ago, although he only stayed for a short while, it was still a very significant trip because we celebrated our 1 year anniversary AND his belated birthday!!!!

His birthday is actually on the 9th of August (yup, on National Day!) but due to work restrictions, he could only come down on the 13th..

Which is fine, since our anniversary is on the 13 and 14th!

How it works is that the first time we ever saw each other was on August 13 midnight in 2009.. but we couldn’t decide on whether to have our official anniversary date on the 13th or 14th so we ended up having the best of both worlds.. or in this case, best of both dates.

Anyways, I should best get started on this blog post as it will take FOREVER to finish (editing and uploading the pics alone took more than 6 hours) so


HERE WE GOOOOOOO!

Weee happy 24th birthday baby!!!

I made him a green dinosaur cake, as he requested, but my god.. making a 3d dinosaur cake is a lot harder than you think. It was so huge that I ran out of icing and couldn’t frost the damn thing properly!

I took forever to make it though, like 4 hours + to make AND decorate it…

At least it put a huge smile on his face when he saw it! It’s all about the thought and effort, …..right? *kids self*

That’s the back of the dinosaur you’re looking at, btw, I made him a head but it’s too fugly so you can stare at its green butt instead.

Oh and doesn’t my boy look supa flash in his shiny blazer??

The moment he stepped into my house after landing in Singapore, I “surprised” him with the cake and after having a few slices of it, we packed our stuff and scooted off to…..

Marina Bay Sands!!!!

Thank you mummy for the complimentary rooms and also MBS for the extra night’s stay that they extended for us hehe.

I was there recently but I was blown away this time again.. you can never get bored of hotels like these!

Excited to spend the next 3 days in luxury!!

We stayed at a better room this time, we upgraded from the 20th+ floor (from my previous stay) to 40+ floor (recently) and the room is much more luxurious!

They have a super comfy king sized bed (which I couldn’t stop jumping up and down on cuz its so marshmallowy), pretty awesome views, bigger tv and of course my favourite HAS to be their MASSIVE BATH TUB!

This is their bathroom.. doesn’t look like very much like this, but it’s huugeee. Huge is an understatement – it’s probably bigger than my bedroom.

Their shower space is so fucking big, 10 people can fit in there, no lies. I’ve never seen a bigger shower area and I was like “Why do people need such a big space for showering? Mass orgy?”

But it was cool because I could dance and jump around while having a nice cold shower, takes my nightly bathroom concert routine to a higher level. (what, you guys don’t pretend you’re rockstars inside the shower?)

Weee sitting on the tub and taking random pics

Haven’t worn this Forever 21 halter top in years.. it’s awesome how some clothing never go out of style!

Lol camwhore fail, strap in the way!

Inside the massive tub which I’ve had the immense pleasure of taking daily hot bubble baths in!!!!

I wish my house had a bath tub… we have this stupid walk in shower area that looks like a square bath tub that’s absolutely redundant. My future house MUST have a tub!

I mean how awesome is soaking in hot soapy water that smells like awesome soap while being covered in foamy bubbles? Such a simple, underrated pleasure!

Sam being… …………… charming.. lol.

And that’s my 1 year anniversary bouquet, woopie!!! It is SO gorgeous ♥

Sam being “charming” again hahaha we were pretty delirious by then (it was 3am), we both had a long day beforehand (up for more than 24 hours) but we didn’t go to sleep till like 10am.


Love white fluffy pillows!!!
Why do some people like to sleep on supposedly “high quality” pillows that are super hard?

I like my bed to be massive and incredibly marshmallowy!

Big squishy blanket and springy mattress and fluffy pillows everywhere! Plus a bolster of course. CANNOT live without my bolster... horrified whenever I go to hotels and there’s nothing to hug at night (except my bf lol)

Trying to rival Sam’s “act chio” shots!!


OMG I just realized I forgot to tell you all I had a new haircut!!!!

Well obviously you’ve figured that out by now after looking at my pictures.

I cut it pretty short, above my shoulders... I wanted to go a little shorter still but Sam said it’d be a bad idea since I would have almost nothing left by then, and would be limited to very few hairstyles to experiment with.

Do you like it??? …I LOVE IT!

It’s so much lighter and neater now, and the best part is that it’s hassle free. NO MORE TANGLES.

I used to get the WORST tangles that would make the back of my head look like a psycho squirrel jumped onto my head, took a shit there, had several fits before finally burrowing itself inside the mess and died there.

Now it hardly requires any styling at all, just a little bit of curling inside at the ends (love that look!) and maybe some hairspray or wax here and there.

Anyway on to more GOOD STUFF…

PRESENTS EXCHANGING TIME!!!! ♥

Would you look at what my baby made for me!!!!! ♥

It’s a sculpture of us made from scratch, entirely by him! I asked him what’s the meaning behind all this and he said it represents that he’ll always be my knight in shining armour, always here to catch me if I should ever fall and pushing me higher than ever!!

MAD LOVE!!!!

When I first saw it, I was kinda surprised by it because it IS a little random but it is SO genuine and heartfelt nonetheless it makes my heart melt :’)

There are cracks here and there coz it’s quite fragile and the transportation + plane flight from Melbourne to Singapore wasn’t very forgiving @_@

My pink glittery dress!! Hehe

His sword and shield.. haha haters beware!!!!

Close up of his detailed work!!!! You can tell he spent so much effort on this!

I think he purposely made my ass huge LOL. And we are faceless!!! I guess faces are a little hard to do and would take the simplicity away from what it is currently.

Last pic of it!!

You are the sweetest babyyyyy ♥ TY TY TY!

My other anniversary present!!! ^_______________^

*blows kisses*

Now, you might remember him giving me this other Chanel necklace not too long ago for Valentine’s Day, which is extremely lovely and everything but it wasn’t really what I wanted!

He knew I always wanted a Chanel necklace but could never see the logic in buying anything branded for myself (would rather spend the money on food, holidays, etc.. plus it’s more fun when other people get it for you hehe)

So he bought one for me, which is super sweet and all BUT it was a limited edition piece that was gold and pink specifically designed for Valentine’s Day – it wasn’t the classic silver one with diamonds that I wanted!!!

So I haven’t been wearing it very much (I don’t wear much jewelry in general) and he was determined in getting me a piece that I’d absolutely adore to death and wear super often so he got me this one instead this time.

I love both very much but this one just suits me so much more! ♥ ♥ ♥

Sam’s version of a Chanel necklace.

LOL jk but I got him this necklace because he said he’d always wanted a cross necklace but never dared to get one as he’s not a religious person but I told him not to be silly because you don’t have to be christian to wear a cross!

It’s just a fashion accessory.. but knowing he wouldn’t get one for himself, I got one for him anyway hehe.

His other present… a TRANSFORMERS belt!!!

This was by far his favourite present (I got him a total of 5!)

The instant he opened the box and saw it, his whole face lit up and he jumped around and ran to my brother and said, “LOOK, JEREMY!! I’M AN AUTOBOT NOW!!!!”

Hahaha he is suchhhh a geek! :)

.

After the exchanging of presents and mindless chatter, it was time for the relaxing stuff that hotel rooms are perfect for…

Massages!!! He gives the BEST foot massages ♥

And…

Facials!! HEHEHE.

He looks so silly with different coloured masks on!! The black one is meant for your whole face, while the white one is specifically for the nose area, meant to remove blackheads..

Both are from DAISO, only 2 bucks for a big tube that’s reuseable many times. What a great buy!!!


BOO!

At first I was very skeptical about buying a $2 product to apply on my face, but this mask works like a charm… My T zone is a lot less oily after using it and my entire face feels much smoother and also looks brighter / more radiant!!!

My only problem with it is the overly painful peeling off process… I usually just wash it off with a wet cloth and warm water in gentle, scrubbing motions once it’s 80% dry!

Hahahaha we look so ridiculous!!!

I love applying masks together with other people, because I like staring into their faces and trying our hardest NOT to crack up. The mask hardens up and when you start to laugh, you feel like your face is cracking.

Pretty painful but so fun lolol I always lose though, the more I try not to laugh, the more I do!

We went to sleep after painfully peeling off the masks…

Had the best sleep ♥ I always sleep like a baby in hotel rooms. Why is it that when I’m in my own room / bed, it takes me hours to finally drift off to sleep but it’s almost instant when I’m in a hotel?

Maybe it’s cuz I feel so distant from everything back at home and so I don’t have to worry about anything!

…Not that I usually have lots to worry about, but, y’know.

Rise and Shine!!!

A brand new day and this morning, we’re going to UNIVERSAL STUDIOS!

I was soooooo excited because I’m a big fan of Universal Studios in the States, I’m hoping the Singapore one will live up to its name.

Random pic of the mini bar / fridge in our hotel room… high tech and anal much!!!

In its defense, I’ve never seen a more stocked fridge o____o

Simple matching white outfits with jeans for the day!

Our only accessories = spanking new necklaces hehe ♥

Took some pics of my flowers - they’re so much prettier in the day time, with proper lighting!!!!

This has to be one of the most gorgeous rose bouquet I’ve ever seen :’)

So vibrant, colorful and beautiful! I just can’t help but smile and sigh happily every time I look at it.

It’s been almost a week and the flowers are still alive and quite healthy! I wonder if I can dry the entire bouquet… hmmm. I have loads of dried flowers already though, Sam gives me heaps of flowers and I try to dry every single one but I’m desperately running out of space in my tiny room!


This is what my hair colour is like under bright light!!!
MAJOR ♥ IT!

I actually requested for dark, reddish brown, but goodness knows why it turned out purplish reddish instead.

I’m not complaining though.. This colour and haircut is a huge breath of fresh air for me :)

I was so sick of my extremely long and obviously black roots + weird mixed brown ah lian ish hair

Upon arriving at Universal Studios..

There was a huge sign that said “UNIVERSAL STUDIO TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT TODAY” and we were really disappointed… thankfully we didn’t give up hope (or actually maybe not so thankfully. find out more later on)

We approached the counter and asked when’s the next available date, and to our surprise, they said there’s some tickets still available for the day and they haven’t, in actual fact, completely sold.

I thought that was extremely misleading and I saw throngs of people arriving and then leaving the park disappointed, as they too had read the sign and thought it was sold out.

Nonetheless, we paid $280 for the both of us and got ourselves in. Major FML fucking expensive lah!!!!

We bought express tickets and apparently they charge WAY more on Sundays.

What bullshit… It’s only your soft opening, not all your rides are even opened, the main attractions are closed… so expensive for what?

*obviously very displeased with them.. but mainly for another reason*

Upon entering the park, I noticed the first difference between USF and USS…

TOO MANY ASIANS and it’s tooooo hot!

I don’t know how people can enjoy themselves in a theme park in SG’s weather. It’s like spontaneously microwaving yourself.. and we had the express tickets. I can’t imagine if we had to actually wait in line.

My favourite thing about themed theme parks has gotta be their attention to detail! Every last inch of each building is covered with amazing detail.

Sam and a giant popcorn truck!

You know a theme park has just newly opened when people are lining up just to take pictures with push carts -____-

Hollywood Walk Of Fame!!!

I happened to look down at my feet and saw a giant star… I wondered which celebrity it would give me and OF COURSE I chanced upon Audrey Hepburn!

*feels special*

Woody Woodpecker was the first mascot we saw!! I actually enjoy watching this cartoon quite a bit :)

Compare our picture taken with Woody in Universal Studios Florida here!

Beware of Angry Ogres!!

Despite how ugly Shrek is, his babies are actually cute!!! Well anything infant-ish and miniature is pretty cute :P

I love how gross, rude, ugly and different Shrek is. I love my classic Disney fairytales about princesses but Shrek is definitely an adult cartoon!

Plenty of mature jokes, while still appealing to young children.. What a successful film.

Breakfast at a nearby cafe called “Hollywood Celebrity Cafe” … or something.

They gave us $10 worth of dining vouchers to use, which I thought was pretty cool.

Another plus factor for USS is that their food is WAY cheaper than USF!! (BUT MAYBE FOR A VERY GOOD REASON… once again, find out later on)

Madagascar… it was tiny and the main attraction, an indoor roller coaster, wasn’t even open -_-

And neither was this restaurant we’re taking pics of. And neither was the Shrek “booth” to take photos with. Neither were all the food and souvenir stalls by the pathways. Fail.

I made Sam take a pic with this sign cuz I always thought he resembles a monkey. Particularly, an orang utan. Agreed??

Now this is probably one of the better parts of the theme park…

There’s a very enoyable “4D” Shrek interactive adventure, a mini roller coaster (which actually goes quite fast – I like it!), and a live musical performance!


The land of far, far away…

Apparently so far away that my camera cannot even focus it properly. LOL. I was using manual focus on a moving ride so I guess this ain’t such a bad pic afterall!!

Cute castle, but looks like nothing compared to the Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom. *biased*

Waiting in line to get into the 4D Shrek Adventure…

We didn’t actually have to wait in line but we did anyway, because what’s a theme park without a little waiting around?

People take pics, talk about random stuff, play games with each other and tell jokes while waiting for their go at attractions. It’s all part of the fun!

Look ma, express lane!!

Woohoo I LOVE Universal Studios for the fact that they sell Express tickets!! It may be more expensive but COMPLETELY worth it.

You save hours of your time and the experience is much more enjoyable. It’s only unnecessary if the park is empty… But you’ll have no such luck in USS since it’s brand new. Arriving early makes no difference, since we arrived at 10am and it was already packed.

Felt like a rockstar rebel whenever I see a long queue and I just happen to waltz in and right past people who’ve been waiting for over half an hour.

And it’s funny when they glare at me. I wish I could just say this to their faces:

“Yeah. It sucks to be you. I paid $120 more for this privilege, so either pay up, or quit staring at me like I don’t deserve to get on this ride before you.”

Next up: The Lost World!

Sam’s fav part of the park… looks almost exactly like the one in Florida, except much smaller!

I told him to go stand between those dino eggs because it would be the best angle to capture a full view of everything…

Which seemed like a splendid idea, until a minute later, this happened:

He was actually standing in the middle of a water fountain that goes on and off every few minutes and we had no idea!!!!

We were like “OMG HAHAHA sooooooo lucky we didn’t get pwned!!!”



Sam and his T-Rex Obsession!

Everytime he sees a dinosaur, particularly a T-Rex, he’d be like “OMG I WANNA HAVE A PICURE WITH THIS!!!”

…I meant my dino cake to look a little more similar to this, lol T_T

Ancient Egypt!! I kept hoping that they’d have this Revenge of the Mummy ride which was available in USF, and they did!

Good fun!!!! Lots of special effects and lighting. I love the speed, but I only wish there were more dips in the tracks.

Egyptian statues… their culture is so fascinating!!!

I can’t believe that once upon a time they were something very real.

We pop into the souvenir store to look at exquisite handcrafted artwork!

This chair costs $2.8k… not as expensive as I thought it would be!!

Usually these sort of things in theme parks are amazingly overpriced but I think this is actually quite affordable.

Imagine having one of these in your house!! All your guests would be like “Ooooohhhhh, aaaaaahh!!!”

Better than any designer chair lol

Sam and a creepy figurine. So black and expressionless.. are these meant to be treasure guards or something?

They look like they will suck out your souls!!! (ok been watching too much HP recently.. thinking of dementors now)

Close up of the creepy but strangely fascinating statue…

Stare into its eyes for 10 seconds and see if you get creeped out!!!

Oooh I like this one. Probably the only non-creepy item in the shop!

Malicious looking cup.

Best to serve ginseng with, LOL. Ok I know that’s a bit random but once my mum left a cup of fucking bitter ginseng extract tea thing in my room and I thought it was coke, and I took a huge gulp only to choke on it and spit it all out!!!

If she’d put it in this cup, I would’ve known better…

Seaweed cookies? For real?!?

I love cookies and I love seaweed, but I wouldn’t mix the two together!!

LOLOL

This one not scary at all!!! Compare to this scary motherfucker!

Another great thing about Universal Express is that you get to choose the seats you want, and we ALWAYS got front row seats!!!

Woopiee I heart front row seats! ^______^

It’s so much more fun looking at a proper view instead of the back of someone’s head.

This ride is actually super lame la -_-

The queue was amazingly long (35 mins, most attractions were 15 mins and under) for a short and boring attraction. Maybe cuz all the kids wanted to go on it.

Because this ride was so mundane and slow, it was the only one I actually took pictures of while on it!!!

Not that great weather that day.. was rather gloomy at times and drizzling others, but somehow still stupidly HOT.

Do not go to USS without an electrical or hand held fan or prepared to die. Oh and ALWAYS check weather forecast before going!!!

Fake crocodile.. Hahaha super bo liao

Sam looking unamused :P

I think we were both dying for it at least move a little faster so we’d get some wind in our faces!


Omg these bugs creep me out sooo much!!!

The high pitched noises they make when they crawl about and the mass quantities and of course the fact that they’ll eat you alive… these scare me much more than mummies do lol

On our way to have lunch, Sam pointed out something very peculiar: Mushrooms growing on ROPE!!!

Apparently our country is so tropical and moist enough for that to happen. Strange isn’t it?

Lunch time, at Oasis Spice Cafe in the Egyptian area.

This is where all the drama began.

….I wanted to let Sam try some local food at the food court, but it was packed off its nuts and noisy and relatively dirty, basically all the things I hate about food courts, so we decided on preferring to pay overpriced food in an Egyptian / Indian restaurant that’s quiet, clean, and seemingly quite lovely.

…..BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Me and Sam have good reason to believe that the food we’d consumed here in Oasis Spice Cafe, Universal Studios, actually caused us FOOD POISONING!

We’d spent the whole day at Universal Studios, eating only the food in USS so other restaurants would have been out of the question. I started getting acute pains in my stomach area right before dinner time, after we’d let the park.

I whined to Sam about how much pain I was in, and he comforted me by saying I may just have an upset stomach that would go away soon.

I didn’t quite believe him, since the pains I was having is very different from your usual “I-need-to-take-a-shit-kind-of-stomach-ache” with rumbling noises and a strange need to fart.

This was the “OMG WTF WAS THAT IT FELT LIKE SOMEBODY STABBED ME IN THE STOMACH” kind of pain that catches you off guard.

It’s on and off painful sensations and it was quite unbearable, I even had tears in my eyes while trying to ignore the pain but it was simply too overwhelming and we immediately went back to our hotel room after dinner to rest.

.
.
.
.
.
.

Later into the night, Sam started developing similar symptoms and he too began to feel my pain!!!!

The both of us then went into a continuous stage of spontaneous diarrhea. It was SO BAD!! Inbetween clutching our abdomen and going “Owwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww” we had to run back and forth lao sai-ing at the same time.

Needless to say, the rest of our trip was pretty much ruined since we spent the next 2 days in bed because we developed fevers and Sam’s fever was so high, he couldn’t even get out of bed!!

He spent the entire day just curled up under the sheets telling me how hot and cold he felt at the same time.

Poor baby…


I FELT SO ANGRY!!!!
I brought my boyfriend to Universal Studios Singapore for a good time and we ended up having food poisoning.

How am I so sure that it was USS that caused my food poisoning?

1) I went to a doctor, who diagnosed us and confirmed it and prescribed us med, that didn’t work until 3 days later

2) I had eaten NO other food that day, so whatever it is, it must’ve been from USS

3) We had weird Egyptian / Indian food for lunch, and we ordered a lot, and it was just a whole jumble of strange spices and it’s easy to go wrong when you’re dealing with food like that! We don’t know what it is, but somebody really effed up in their kitchen or something.

4) Don’t wanna sound too disgusting, but I looked at my own shit and I saw chilli spices in it LOL so confirm Indian right? I ate nothing else with such spices that day.

.

I tweeted @rwsentosa on Twitter, I called up their feedback hotline and sent a long ass email to their feedback email but only one ever did get back to me, which was their email staff.

I told Sam and my mum (who has a premium membership with RWS!! You’d think they’d care more when we called up!) I was gonna complain to USS about their food poisoning but to my horror, both of them didn’t seem to want to and said it was a waste of time.

….WHAT WASTE OF TIME!!! I am soooooo outraged. How can you let people screw you over like that and not give a fuck? I was the one who experienced the pains and it was HORRIBLE, I’ve never cried from a stomach ache or gotten a fever like that afterwards before.

It took away so much of the precious little time that me and Sam had this trip. And who is going to pay for my doctor fees?

Tics to USS = $280.

Medical bill caused by food posioning = $70.

Ruined bf’s birthday celebration + made him so sick that he can’t get out of bed? Priceless!

Anyway, I spoke to quite a few of their staff in charge of feedback and they assured me that they are taking my case very seriously and also that thorough investigations are already being held, so they will contact me once they have the results.

They even called me again earlier this morning just to pacify me and let me know that results will be out on Monday. (what results idk.. i didnt ask)

I’m blogging about this entire experience because I don’t want any other poor innocent guest to dine at a seemingly nice restaurant only to get food poisoning. So, until I have the “results” from them, anyone who’s intending to go to Universal Studios Singapore should be more wary and probably avoid Oasis Spice Cafe.

Oh ya, did I mention that besides the supposed food poisoning, we also found A STRAND OF HAIR in my dessert? -_______-

All sorts of warning sirens were already going off in my head… Sigh, super suay la.

Anyway, I’ll get a move on with my post now.

Sam chomping down his food like the glutton that he is!!!!!

HAHAHAHA omg I LOVE this pic!!! It is HILARIOUS.

Look at him stuffing more food into his mouth than his cheeks can fit.. he’s like my hamster. *pinches cheeks*

Don’t wanna think about what sort of ingredients they have in there…

Silly us, so happy for what!!! Little do you know the terrible fate that will be bestowed upon you!

Of COURSE my camera chooses to focus him instead of me….

Hehe!!!!!!!


♥ ♥ ♥

Gigantic soft drink that we finished so easily!!! We survive on our gassy sweet drinks… probably the most gluttonish and unhealthy couple ever :P

Oooh oh and look what else is for lunch!!!!! I almost forgot~

HEHEHEH everyone, say hi to Gingie!!!!!!

He is ADORABLE! Squeeeee! If you don’t recognize him, he’s the gingerbread man from Shrek. I HAD TO BUY HIM omg where and when else can you buy something so incredibly cute?

Sam looking a bit strange LOL

OM NOM NOM NOM NOM NOMZZ!!!!!!

Random picture of Sam looking UNNATURALLY GIRLY. LOL

Aww look at him he’s such a happy fellow ^_______^

After lunch, we continued to explore the rest of the theme park..

But the weather was too hot, we had to get refreshments immediately even though we just had lunch! MAD!!!

Sun kissed skin so hot, we’ll melt your popsicle!! OhhohhhOhhh ~ Ohhhohhohhhh~

LOL ok I couldn’t help it. In USF, we had hot chocolate to keep us warm. In USS, we needed popsicles to not die from the heat!!!

Another pic of my new hair!! Because…. it’s new.

Dueling coaster that’s not even open yet!!! T___________T

I’d strongly suggest for you guys to wait until EVERY SINGLE ATTRACTION is open before going, otherwise not worth the money! There’s already very little attractions as it is.

On the streets of New York!

Not much in New York itself, just a small corner with a lot of decorative buildings…

There’s performances every now and then on the streets and sidewalks, which is pretty cool besides the fact it’s under the HOT SUN and nobody in their right mind would stand under the sweltering heat without any shelter to watch some performance!

I watched about 4 minutes of a breakdancing performance before diving for shelter. I wonder how the mascots survive LOL and how much they’re paid!!!! What if they faint?

Sam and a bright yellow vintage car!!! Vintage cars are so much fun to look at hehe

One of the last things we did in USS was watching the Water World performance..

I think I’ve seen this one in USF a long time ago but I don’t remember much of it!

Sam fanning himself with the girliest possible looking fan LOL

The show involves some stunts with water skis and explosions and fake gun fire and lol-acting…

Pretty entertaining, but not more entertaining than the hired actors walking around with huge ass water guns squirting people with it!

I was walking towards my seat in the stadium when I felt a huge SPLASH on my back. It wasn’t even like *squirt* kind of wet, it was like *SPLASH* “OMG DID A PAIL JUST DROP ON ME?”

Bah!! Don’t these people know not to pour water on girls with see through white T shirts? Or maybe that was his intention. I must say it was mildly refreshing though. It was so damn HOT.

Sam seemed to be enjoying himself very much ♥

On our way out of the park, we took a picture with one last mascot!!!


KUNG-FU PANDA!!!!!!!!

Honestly I didn’t think the show was very funny or entertaining (although it was hilarious that he sold noodles and his father is a bird) but the mascot is so big and fat, we just HAD to take a shot with him!

And yes, I fail at kung fu.


..And that concludes our day at Universal Studios!!!!

Despite the fact that I’m incredibly biased because I’ve been to many theme parks around the world before and USF itself, and the fact that we had food poisoning, we still had a good time.

It’s a theme park afterall and the closest we had to one in SG was Escape theme park!

For all my life I’ve WISHED AND DREAMT AND HOPED for a big theme park to be constructed in SG, and now it’s finally here… but I’m not a big fan of it.

Quite disappointing, and I think USS should have had more original and newer rides instead of the same ones they have in America, so that guests would have less to compare to and it would be a more unique experience!

They lack the amazing shows and rides that Universal Studios is all about... From pet shows to special effects (theres only one very brief studio special effects demo) and of course, horror and adult humour but I guess Singapore is too conservative for that.

I reckon they could’ve done without unnecessary stuff like rock climbing, lesser shops and restaurants, better use of space to have more attractions that does the actual Universal Studios justice.

If I’d known all these earlier, I wouldn’t have gone because it’s certainly not worth the money (especially on weekends!! don’t go on weekends)

AND THE FOOD POISONING!!!

But whatever, as long as my baby had fun on the day itself.

I still can’t believe we’ve been together for a year.

..It feels like just yesterday, we were complete strangers simply playing an online game together, with no connection between our lives besides the one that is the internet.

I remember thinking to myself, “As much as you like this guy, nothing will EVER happen because he lives in Australia..”

I didn’t think that you’d be so ready to give up everything you have and offer to move to Singapore. I didn’t think we’d make a long-distance relationship work.

I didn’t know what to think!!!!!!!

I was just hurting like crazy from an abusive relationship I just got out of, and you rescued me from him. Every day I still thank god that happiness has stepped up to greet me and that there is ALWAYS a rainbow after the storm.

I’d like to think our relationship is one in a million.. it’s almost like a fairytale come true.

Even though you can be a REAL JERK sometimes and there were a number of times when I felt like giving up or that it’s not worth it – you’ve always managed to convince me and if I have doubts, it won’t take long for you to change my mind… when I tell myself maybe it’s time to let go, somehow I’m still holding on.

Because the best thing about you is despite your occasional insensitivity amd immaturity,
your sincerity ALWAYS shines through in the end and it reminds me why I love you.

You accept my flaws, you tell me everyday how much you love me and how beautiful I am, you attend to my seemingly insignificant selfish needs, you make me feel like the most special girl in the world. (most of the time haha)

I know the past few months have been increasingly difficult babe, but hey, we made the 1 year mark!!!!

This past year has been incredible and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.. if I could, I’d do it all over again. Just so you know.

And I know that this will continue to grow into something even more amazingly special and beautiful, as long as we both try.. hard, as we do.


Thank you baby, for all the times we’ve had and will have.
