Just out for a walk

Wednesday, 18 Feb 2009
Faith called us that they have one young korean guest, Hayong, who is staying with them. They wanted to bring him for a night walk, and since both of us were free, so................ let's go!!
We brought him to Esplanade, Merlion Park and Cavenagh Bridge. Then we went to Bukit Timah for supper. We orderd Sate (mutton, chicken, beef), tissue prata, pataya, dan murtabak mutton. The drinks were: ice soursop (a bit sour but very refreshing), ice olive, redbean milk shake .. all very nice to try!
Believe it or not, this Indian eating place is just at the small lane, but the waitress using wireless HP 212 to take your orders. And when you want to pay, they just keyed-in yr table number and the bill will be printed out. Is really amazing for consider not even a restaurant and without aircond place.

These pictures all were taken using pocket camera, so please bear with the quality........

Just a small intermezzo ...

One night few of us were gathering around the dining table.
We just chit-chat and suddenly someone said that I good to be a principle. I can be very strict with the children....

So, I told them if I were the principle, I will do the following:
1. Staff meeting once a year....... at the beginning of the year.
2. The agenda of the meeting to remind every staff about the 2 rules.
3. The rules are:
- Rules number 1: The principle always right
= Rules number 2: If the principle make any mistake, please refer to rule number 1.

Are we children??? Trip to the Singapore Zoo

Sunday, 15 Feb 09

I claimed from the credit card point one free ticket to enter Singapore Zoo...

Actually we have been to the Zoo for many times, but again this time we wanted to go there again. The main reason was for Bagio to practice his skill in taking the photo.

After church meeting, I told one of my friend that we were going to the Zoo.. and she just burst her laugh when she heard this and said "I thought ZOO is only for kids?" Ha?????

But when we arrived at the Zoo, believe it or not, so many adults (without kid) also there... So her comment was wrong............ Anyway, we did enjoy the day... the weather just nice for us to walk and we were walking for more than 4 hours..........

Some pictures that we took yesterday... click Jurong Bird Park & Zoo .

Visit of Tri/Rahma, 7-10 Feb 09

Saturday, 7 Feb 09

Morning I went to airport to fetch Bagio's brother & sis-in-law, Trijosono & Rahma.

From airport, since still early to go for shopping, we just stopped and sat at East Coast Park. Then we went to Funan Centre while waiting for Bagio to arrive. After we got what they need to buy, we went for another shopping at IMM until about 5pm, then went home.

Sunday, 8 Feb 09

We dropped them at Water Loo before we went to church. After church's meeting, we fetched them and we went for lunch at the nearby place. From them we went to Botanic Garden and National Orchid Garden. And then we went to Esplanade and Merlion Park for sightseeing. We had dinner "Just Noodle" @ Suntec City. Free flow of drinks and ice cream...!!!!

Monday, 9 Feb 09

I dropped them at Raffles Place for their business meeting. Then I met with my ex boss and May Leong for lunch. After that we went to Sentosa just let them know what is Sentosa like... Night time just stay at home after dinner at Chicken Wing @ Commenwealth.

Tuesday, 10 Feb 09

Bagio took leave to accompany them. They went to Jurong Bird Park until afternoon and then fetched me from the office and we went straight to airport as they went back to Jakarta today.

Bagio was very happy that finally his brother could visit him.... I also happy for him!

Chinese New Year Holidays.... 24-27 Jan 2009

Long wiken in Singapore for the celebration of Chinese New Year Celebration.

Saturday, 24 Jan 2009
With Jimmy & Joanie, we went to Sentosa to see the Flower Show.. but somehow, this year the exhibition not as good as the years before... Many of the flowers were still in its buds, not yet blooming and also the variety not that much. Maybe because they cut the budget due to the recent economy condition. (For example: compare from the pictures here, the bigger picture is 2009 and the smaller one was taken 2008). Just managed to snatched some pictures..
From there, we went to Pasir Panjang Hawker Centre for dinner, and then to Chinatown to joint the crowds and feel the atmosphere of Chinese New Year......

Sunday, 25 Jan 2009
We went to Duncanc/Faith's house for reunion dinner with Faith's brother/sisters. Thanks for the invitation..... the food is very delicious......... All prepared by them.

Monday, 26 Jan 2009
In the morning we went to HortPark for photo session.......... I meant for Bagio to practice his skill in photography.
We went to Seah Imm for lunch and shocked when we saw the queue of those who wanted to go to Sentosa by bus.......... wow........ !!!! I believed that they have to queue more than 2 hours just to hop into the bus... This happened last year too. Maybe because many of those foreign workers were on holiday and they took the opportunity to relax and gathering at Sentosa by paying $3.00 for whole day........!
Dinner together @ Robert/Grace's house.

Tuesday, 27 Jan 2009
Since we have no other program (actually we wanted to go to Zoo by using the voucher that I collected by exchanged credit card points, but the T&C said that the voucher can not be used during CNY's periods..), soooooooo we changed the direction and went to Sentosa (again!) for another photo session and relax by the beach...............
All the photo can be enjoyed here........
