The few days at Taichung!

Had so much good food!!! Uniquely special cos I never had them in SG before. 

This, have lah. But it's so beautifully displayed. 

I've no idea what have I ate cos I just eat only lah. 

But well, Taichung is mad boring. Not my type of place to go for holiday. I hate sight seeing, unless is the beach. I hope nobody jio me to see palace, animals or mountains again. I'm totally NOT interested. I'll get bored till sick one. 

I love this!!! 又香, 又好吃, 又便宜!

Beginning to love 卤肉饭! Yum yum! 

Am not a leech when it comes to r/s, never was. But I hope to travel around the world with my loved one! :) 

There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved. 

The sofa decal with so much help from my neighbour. Omg. He's such a nice chap. I can talk to him like a "sister". He helped me a lot with the TV set up, now decal. Hahaha becos he's a perfectionist, I trusted him to do it.

We (me, him, his wife and the kids) have a MHK date on Labour day! Heehee 

I'm going to buy a waffle machine for Raeann now! Can some kind soul share with me waffle recipe? 

Till then.

Byebye again!

I seriously, honestly, absolutely have no idea what shit am I landing myself into. Was informed only yesterday that flight was booked and I'm supposed to be in the airport today's midnight. Nice. 

I don't know what to expect, don't know what to do and don't even know why I am there for. Just playing my part. 

First time I'm going overseas without a single bit of excitement, simply no feeling at all. 

I only hope I won't have to spend much there cos I don't have any income now. It's very stressful. (I haven't change any money, yet. Lol) 

Handling everything (+ my emotions) alone is crap. Sometimes, you just need a hug from your loved one to let you know that "he/she will be there for/with you." 

But well... Sigh

See this idiot! 

My mum just asked me what time I'll be back on Sunday. I said I don't know. She was like, "Jialat, everything you don't know!" 

Yup, it's true, I don't know everything. I don't care and don't bother to know. Just tell me what time I must be at the airport can liao. I don't even know what airline I'll be taking! Haha 

Time for bed! So mentally exhausted.

Philips Android Box

Was given a FREE Android Box when I purchased my $799 display set TV. Collected it only few days ago cos I don't even know what the hell is it. 

Now I know. This is so cool. I'm really thankful to have a very helpful neighbour. He came over and help me set up for the whole afternoon.

Now we can watch all sort of movies, YouTube, FB on the TV now. The happiest are the kids. Cos I seldom watch TV one, like almost never.

Looking back...

We have come a long way!

This picture shows it all.

Browsed through the house album on FB just now. You know my real purpose of posting/blogging? Not becos I like to show off, or I'm too free, but becos I can look/read back.

This house is the 'start' of all our arguments. Long story short, becos everything was unprepared. It took damn long to complete becos I've to wait for my salary before I can buy anything. Till date, I've already threw in about $30K or more. This house made me poor, damn poor, until I don't even dare to count how much I've spent.

Just so you know, all my miniature furniture are cheapo. Like my TV console hor, $99 only, lolol. But seriously, who cares right? I like it can liao.

Another favourite cheapo is this shoe cabinet from Ikea, also at $99/each.

3rd cheapo will be this sink (C/w all the things inside the photo + tap but I sold the tap at $25? Can't remember. Becos I already bought my own tap!) from Carousell at $40. After selling the tap, it costs like $15 only. Hahahaha

I get very high when I think of how cheap all the things I bought, like wow, I SAVED SO MUCH. But of cos, there's a price to pay. I sacrificed my sleep for months just to source for all of them. I think I'm even more budget than BQQ now. lol

If you're just like me, no budget to engage an ID, no worries, come to me, I'll share with you all my tips I researched over the last many months. If not, go to my FB album, I shared all the details there when people asked.

Anyway hor, I think I'm going Taiwan again next week for 4 days 3 nights. I'm trying to reduce it to 3 days 2 nights instead. Not for holiday, and I just spent 7 days there! OMG. It's a sponsored trip though.

Beauty haul from Taiwan!

I haven't recover from my irritating cough from Taiwan! Didn't sleep for 2 nights due to this nonsense cough already. And it's only AT NIGHT!!! Noon time I didn't cough that much. But night time, the cough is continuous and breathe-less, despite taking medicine. I can't sleep cos I had difficulty in breathing. 

What I'm worried most is, I'll spread it to the kids. They insisted sleeping with me, kissing me etc, even though I keep saying no. 

Hope I can recover soon. 

Well, I miscalculated. I divided wrongly and thought everything is at only half the price I bought, thus so much. When I realised, it's too late liao. And I stopped totally.

Anyone heard of the brand 1028 before? I love all their products! Cheap and good! Their eyeshadow stays from morning to night. If I'm not wrong, it's about S$12.75 for this. Xiao S is the ambassador of this brand. 

Okay, I bought this from Qoo10 but I've no idea how to use this. Anyone can teach me? 

So much love for these two!!!

Hey yes, I'm back to blogging. I'll start to accept advertorials & sponsorships now. Hope I'm not too old for it! Haha

7 days; 11kgs of loots!

Wow, I'm surprised! I went with 13.7kg. The usual me will come back with at least 40kgs for 7 days. Lolol

Firstly, I'm barely 50kgs (should be 48kgs now), so there's no way for me to carry so many things! 

2ndly, I've already bought an additional bag there, which means I already have 3 bags and 2 hands only. 

3rdly, I've no more money, lolol. I saved my last bit for treating my cousin & family dinner and pay for the transport to airport. 

So that's why. But I'm happy! So much things sorted out during this trip. Spent a laid back life, walk, eat, sleep for the entire week. Sometimes, you just need to get away from everything for awhile. 

This msg sums it all. Traveling alone is not as bad as what I've thought last time. In fact, it's better than travelling with a big group of people. Cos, I REALLY HATE TO WAIT, AND I DON'T LIKE PEOPLE TO WAIT FOR ME TOO. 

这就是我! Love or hate me, up to you. Becos I can be alone. Moreover, I've two really lovely kids. One week didn't see my room, there are a lot of additional stickers everywhere. I wonder who did it!!! 

Cousin's wife, Janet. Am I supposed to call her 大嫂, even though she's younger than me? Haha no idea why my hair so messy. I washed at salon everyday ok!

Baby Gerrard. Can guess that my cousin is crazy over soccer one right? Lol. It's a great catching up (though we only met twice throughout the whole trip) becos we are not very close type. Those we get to meet only during CNY or occasions lah. But we are not... erm... buay gum. Just that we're busy with our own things and family.

The very famous 奶茶 at 公馆, cos the pearl is freshly handmade. Indeed. The pearl is so soft. Omg. Can never drink it in SG at all.

One of the competition winning 卤肉饭 at about S$1 at 辽宁夜市, which is 2 mins walk from my hotel. Good location I must say!

This shop. But I've no idea what's the shop name sia. It's goooooood! 

The steamboat which is better than HDL.

Quail eggs! <3

Damn huge sausage! (I didn't eat but just took a photo cos I'm impressed by the hugeness!)

I seem to eat ALOT!!!

Now, photos of the hotel I stayed. It's cheap and good! 10 mins walk to 南京复兴 MRT station. 15 mins walk to 忠孝复兴 MRT station. In between. But if u ask me ah, I'd prefer to stay at more 热闹 area. At least, not so quiet when going back.

However, if you want to compare hotel structure, cleanliness, quality and service within the same price range, this is one of the better. 

I changed two rooms btw cos I made two different bookings! 

ARK hotel. Suitable for kids cos it's animal themed. About S$80/night on average. 

Well, Taipei is getting more expensive as compared to the last time I went. More and more tourists, that's why. Everywhere is the same now. Influx of "foreign talents", that's what a driver told me. And locals find it very hard to survive.

Sidetrack: This is too cute not to share! 

Anyway, I MIGHT be going there again end of the month. Not confirmed yet but most likely. This time round to settle some issue. If only the flight is shorter...
