Instagram Snapshots ~*August 2015*~

I really should have more posts in between my Instagram Snapshots posts as it seems to me that they are appearing too frequently. But then I cannot say that the months are passing by too frequently eh?

It's less than 3 weeks to a mega event that my department is organizing together with many other public agencies. I guess that would only mean that there would be cobwebs here again.

Brought back my new Asics running shoes from the office so that I would have more motivation to run in something new. And then the notti cat photo bombed.

Tried Milk & Honey artisan yogurt parfait for the first time. There was an SG50 $5 promotion going on and I chose the Healthy Mix which consisted of strawberries, oranges and bananas. Super yummy and look at that cute Singapore flag!

Whenever I wear this double ring, people would ask me if my finger movements are limited and get me to do the Asian peace sign. So... I'll just do the Asian peace sign.

First day of SG50 jubilee weekend, we indulge in many Singaporeans' favorite local dish - Nasi Lemak!

Nasi Lemak is one of my favorite local dish but Chong Pang Nasi Lemak is overrated. The coconut fragrance from the rice doesn't come off enticing, the luncheon meat isn't my favourite Ma Ling brand and the chicken drumstick is way too big with a strong frozen meat taste under the super delicious skin. Fried Ikan Bilis is always yummy and can't really go wrong.
I very much prefer the traditional ones where you don't pick your own ingredients coz those ingredients that come with the dish are simple and good.

Otah or otak-otak for second day of SG50 jubilee weekend. Love it when the whiff of otah permeates through the air and lulls me to the direction of the makeshift otah stand. Often, they smell better than they taste so when they taste just like they smell, those are really ho eh!

I was laughing so hard at Hubby's 3D latte art. It's so girl girl!!! I requested for Totoro this time round. We thought that we were limited to 1 3D art per table so Hubz didn't bother to request and look what happened. LOL! 😂 Can anyone tell me if that's My Melody???

#Totoro is sinking real fast at #chockfullofbeans. On a separate note, #ootd is #redandwhite for pre national day! On a separate separate note, I wanna see how annoying it is to read hashtags in between text.

You could tell that the focus was really The Cat who was photobombed by the shoes.
On a separate note, the sky was overcast and perfect for running even when it was approaching noon. But once I started jogging, the sun beams peered through the grey clouds announcing their arrival. Then, the dam in my nose called Sinus started leaking and by the 15th minute, my chest was hurting from sucking in too much.
Then, I got home and saw The Cat lazing like nobody's business on the mat and I thought how nice it is to be a cat.

Third day of SG50 jubilee weekend which is also National Day, I indulged in my parents' comforting home cooked food. For today's dinner, there's brown rice, spinach stir fried with garlic and white bait, corned beef with onion, clams with white wine and lotus root soup. Look at how the lotus root is in heart shape. 💕💕💕 I simply love my parents' 爱心餐!We've been watching the NDP in the comfort of our sofa... With my work laptop left in the cold...

Soaking in the post NDP atmosphere with @tifducky and Paul at the whole Marina Bay area before National Day is over. What better way to start the night with old school wafer ice cream! So we had chocolate mint, nata de coco and chocolate chips but they all tasted like durian!!!

MoMo (MolekTheCat), my favourite neighbourhood stray died from being attacked by a pack of 10 wild dogs last week over the Jubilee Weekend. I haven't even seen her the past few times I was at my family home. This picture of her rousing from her sleep in the bicycle basket was taken in 2008. I still can't believe she is gone... A feisty but loving cat when faced with 10 wild dogs is beyond her feisty nature to handle.

For my Singaporean followers/Yishun denizens, these wild dogs roam the forested area near Bottle Tree Park and they are pretty aggressive. There is a Park Connector there where I see joggers and cyclists. Do keep a good watch out when you are around that area!

This 2012 video was my last long interaction with her: https://www.facebook.com/jolene.ng.961/videos/vb.741817783/10153670493252784/?type=3&theater

On National Day, I did a short clip of "Home" which is almost every Singaporean's favourite National Day song and didn't post it up. Now I'm challenged by SOMEBODY (tag removed) to post my amateur singing up on public social media. Challenge accepted but please don't bash me for the bathroom singing. Takes a lot to post this up to get bashed.

Spontaneous lunch meet up with bestie @xtinaong and Baby Sammie today! Baby Sammie is sick but she was so well-behaved! Most of the times, she just let mummy and aunty eat and chat in peace while she looked at everyone in the restaurant and made them smile with her curious, kpo expression. It was so great catching up with you Chris!

I haven't posted any illustration or random doodle on Instagram for a loooooooong time. Here's a Triumph TR250 which was part of the farewell card for our previous director. I've never drawn or coloured a car before and even with referencing, this is my most challenging drawing and colouring to date.

Discovered new, doable and effective toning and sculpting YouTube videos to work out to! They are just toning and sculpting but I was burning and sweating like cardio.
Yes yes, some of you are still guessing on Instagram which sports bra I chose. I got the pink and black Nike one in the end coz I'm bimbotic and wanna match my pink and black FBT shorts.

Throwback to 10 years ago. These are the very first colleagues I've made when I stepped out into the working world, some of whom have become great buddies and many of whom are still connected through Facebook. I will always miss the times when we worked hard together and played even harder together, the long lunches whenever we decided to reward ourselves and all the celebrations we threw for one another. We need a 10 year reunion soon!

  2. Jo, I'm sorry about the kitty... how sad... my kitty is an indoor one. I don't think she could handle the outdoors.

    I like the cute pink and black Nike top you ended up choosing and you Aesics are so cute. I hope you can get some exercise in with your busy work schedule.

    Honestly there are not enough hours in the day for everything I want/need to do. I'm not blogging as often due to exercising ao much, I'm trying to get lots in before the Winter hits xox

    1. It's been a long time since I connected with you on blog. Glad we still get updates from each other on FB and IG. I do wanna get back to my blog. I would love to see more pictures of your cat! I'm told by my American friends that it is common to declaw indoor house cats where they are and it isn't much of a thing to worry about. Is your kitty declawed? Over here, it seems like declawing is inhumane. I wanted to keep a cat in my new place but hubby is gonna get his dream leather sofa. -_-

  7. Wahhhh, I really miss nasi lemak and otak-otak, Jo! I think it's the biggest thing that I miss about Malaysia, the food. Yes, I can cook it myself but the feeling and experience is so different from walking into a mamak stall at 2.00am. :-(

    1. You can cook nasi lemak?! You're such a great cook, Shireen. I always enjoy all your recipe posts that look so yummy yet relatively simple to follow. I imagine that if I were to move to a western country, I would miss all the late night food stalls that we could easily find in Singapore and Malaysia.
