Month: December 2007
Today finally marks the last day of 2007.
I would like to thank all the kind-hearted souls who has helped A.L.L in one way or another.
I would especially like to take this opportunity to thank J-Team artiste Michelle Tay, YES FM 933 Deejay, Peifen and Love FM 972 Deejay, Xiaoying for their help in publicising the plights of the animals on their blogs.
Xiaoying not only helped to publicise, she even ordered 10 calenders to be delivered to her bridal shop at Tanjong Pagar!
Xie Xie Ni, Xiaoying!
Although 2007 has ended, do continue to give the homeless animals your support!
Edit (January 6 2008): Thanks to Mediacorp artiste, Kang Cheng Xi for lending his support to this cause too!
Laputa is really good!
Pazu rescues an unconscious girl descending from the night sky with a glowing pendant around her neck. He helps the girl, Sheeta, to escape from the air pirates and the military who are obsessed with Laputa, a legendary kingdom on a floating island in the sky with which Sheeta is suspected of being connected.
With an adventurous boy as the main character, Miyazaki tells a story that involves discoveries and wonderful encounters, a story that carries a message of hope.
This may be an old film of Studio Ghibli but I love it for it’s engaging plot! In fact, I like all the Studio Ghibli‘s productions which I’ve watched like My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle and Laputa.
There are still some of their productions which I have yet to watch but next on my list are Princess Mononoke and Grave of the Fireflies.
The Laputa OST is pretty nice! No matter how many times I listened to it, it’ll always bring tears in my eyes…
I LOVE STUDIO GHIBLI!
Accompanied my parents to SA Tours to book their tickets to China. They’ll be leaving next week for a seven day tour which means, I’ll be jaga-ling the house all by myself for seven days. After confirming their seats on the plane, we went walking around Chinatown checking out the exchange rates with all the money changers we could find.
After that, we went to the food centre beside OG to have our dinner. My dad ordered Roast Duck and Claypot Fish Head but both dishes are not to my liking. The duck is a tad too salty while the fish had a very ‘muddy’ taste, which I believed is farm raised instead of wild-caught.
After dinner, we went inside OG to look around for CNY clothes but nothing caught my eye. We then crossed the overhead bridge to the video store on the other side at Smith Street. Actually, this video store is the only motivation which makes me want to come to Chinatown.
DVDs are going for less than $10 and some titles are even as low as $5! Of course, these are parellel imports but the quality is good enough for me albeit it may not have some of the special features found in the originals.
For me, I don’t need ‘special features’ as long as I could select languages and subtitles.

Two days ago, I was having lunch with my mum at home when I heard Kitty mewing. I turned to look but she wasn’t there outside the door. However, her mewing seems to be getting louder and louder.
Instinctively, my gaze turned towards the floor and there she was, staring back at me right beside my feet! My mum was just seating opposite me but she didn’t hear the mewing because we had the TV on.
I panic and stomped my feet to chase her away – which she did, thankfully before my mum discovers her! I had to do that because I wouldn’t know what my mum would say if she saw Kitty begging inside our house!
Then yesterday morning, after waking up, I went to open the maindoor and after checking that Kitty wasn’t there, I returned to my room. A while later, I heard my dad shouting. He has just woken up as well and when he stepped into the living room, he saw Kitty walking out from one of the vacant room!
I had to run out from my room to chase Kitty out again.
Luckily, my dad didn’t say much and just laughed it off. Somehow, I knew Kitty was looking for me because everytime I go out, she would follow me down the stairs and walk me off for a short distance.
She would never venture beyond the boundaries of the void deck, which I guessed is her territory. She would stop there and send me off the remainder of the journey with her gaze till I’m out of sight before running ustairs again.
I did a simple banner for the sale of A.L.L Calendars.

It should look something like this:

Yesterday was Farzanah‘s birthday BBQ celebration at Pasir Ris so I meet Jeffrey at Tampines Mall to get her present. The moment I stepped out from the MRT Station, the sheer amount of human traffic thronging the streets scared me! It’s people mountain people sea literally!
We braved the torrents and made our way safely into the mall opposite but only to be greeted with more people inside! We went to a couple of shops but couldn’t made up our minds on what to buy. Some of the shops were so crowded I didn’t even dared to enter!
We went up and down and eventually decided on a Forever Friends cushion.
After getting the present, there was still alot of time left to the BBQ. As I still hadn’t taken my breakfast, we went over to the Pasar Malam beside the mall to prowl for food. We had the Japanese Teppanyaki Pizza and it was very, very nice! I loved the veggie especially and that flaky stuff on top mixed with the mayo and BBQ sauce!
After our stomachs were filled, we went to White Sands to pass our time. Luckily, White Sands wasn’t as crowded as Tampines Mall which is a relief!
We walked a few rounds but there was nothing much to see. We went to the game shop to look at the PSP and NDS Lite. Then, we went to inspect the food on people’s table at Wan Chai.
We intend to proceed to the BBQ and was already at the bus interchange but Farzanah said that the timing would be delayed as she’s still not ready with the preparations. Thus, we returned to White Sands to walk around again before ending up on the second floor to watch some fugly reindeers act innocent on the stage. (That’s when the batteries in my camera died on me)
At the same time, we waited for Peilan and Anqi to reach Pasir Ris so we could all go together.
Compare the number of people at White Sands(L) and Tampines Mall(R)?
After watching for awhile, both of them came and we finally make our way to the BBQ.
When we reached there, Farzanah and some of her friends were still preparing the food so we sat around for a while and ate marshmallows.
Luckily, she didn’t invite too many people this year so we had quite alot to eat and drink.
The Salmon Salad was very, very nice and I had never seen so much scallops at a BBQ before!
We left around 11.30pm and I managed to hop onto the last train with Peilan. After Peilan got off at Novena, one bloody drunkard vomited all over himself like a Merlion and my leg kenna-ed a bit!
By the time I reached CCK, it was already way past midnight and I’m still in time for the last LRT! I thought that I would have to walk home from the MRT Station!
This is an urgent appeal to all the good samaritans out there.
