Happy 6th Anniversary to us!

We turned 6 yesterday – 9th March.

6 years ago, we became a couple officially and fast forward 6 years to date, we have grown so much individually and together. Naturally, there were ups and downs throughout these 6 years and conflicts are natural and common when 2 people come together. Differences are bound to exist. When your love is strong, you would try and embrace these differences rather than to avoid and blame all fault on them. It will be the same for anyone and everyone and even with your next partner.

No doubt there were times where both of us felt like giving up half way but we stayed rooted to our beliefs and feelings for each other and persevered to date. There were both internal and external factors that attempted to ripped us apart into pieces and begone I say to all those negativities, including outsiders. There would always be fkers who try and destroy your happiness just so they feel good about themselves or that they are just plain sadist psychos.

And another issue is that, some people are just too quick to judge and jump into conclusions based on groundless assumptions. They think that I’m this, this, this type of person or that he is that, that, that kind of character. But little do they know, what they thought they knew may or may not make up an insignificant percentage of the truth. And another thing is that I totally cannot tolerate nosey parkers. Why can’t you just mind your own business? Some poked their noses into people’s business just so they can compare their “social standing”. Whatever okay? Imbalanced imbeciles.

Anyway, I wouldn’t say he is perfect, neither would I claim that I am too, and bearing in mind the notion that “Nobody is perfect”, no one body should be either. Obstacles are what strengthen bonds and relationships, and further deepen feelings and ties. We may have had our fair share of unhappy moments but I cannot deny the fact that I do enjoy every happy moment and memory we once had and would continue to have.

No matter how angry we are with each other, at the end of the day, what is most assuring is that we know that we still have each other to hold and that we will always be there for each other. That has always been our beliefs and faith in one another.

We may not express our love and affection much in the public, except for maybe on social media such as Facebook once in a while, but we are 100% certain of the love we have for one another.

One similarity we have is that we avoid displaying public of affection, otherwise known as “PDA” (Public Display of Affection) because we respect each other, respect those around us be it our families or friends and totally just cannot tolerate those “touchy” couples who cannot seem to get their hands or mouth off each other. Not sure if these couples even have the dignity to feel ashamed but if I were their friend, I would feel damn awkward which I have experienced a few times. Please, just go get a room okay?

Okay, rants aside. Now into the happy things! 😀

So for this very special occasion, compared to Valentine’s Day, we headed to Phuket together 🙂

Isn’t it beautiful??? ❤

Will blog about the whole trip on Phuket another time so stay tuned if you wanna know which hotel did we resided at, cheap hotels to recommend, good reviews of hotels, food, drinks…shopping, where to go in Phuket etc!

After uploading pictures on our Facebook, we have had received some queries pertaining the same from some of our friends, so yes…because you will need to do your homework, i.e. research before embarking on your journey, do keep your eyes peeled for the coming posts!

I just hope that I will have the time to document all of them holistically, perhaps dividing them out into few posts, but I am currently just so swamped with work, backlogs of articles for MFP, advertorials….so please be patient with me alrighty! 😀

I decided to splurge a little more this time round since it was a very special occasion for us both and gotten him 3 presents! And also especially since he has been very prompt in getting me presents for xmas, bday and valentine's day…I thought it was time to buck up as a gf and surprise him x3!!! Hahaha!

What I got for him :

The scrapbook contains many wonderful memories of the past 6 years and yes, the contents will be kept private for our our eyes to see. 😉

What he got for me :

I am extremely happy to receive this classic Tiffany & Co bracelet because it has always been on my wish list! I am not really a fan of Pandora because I have no idea what the current hype is all about…and the jacked up prices is just so ridiculous!! No offence to those Pandora lovers but in my honest opinion, it is more worthwhile to get Tiffany & Co than Pandora since T&C has been a more established brand than the former, 1837 vs 1982 and it was already much more popular before all the Pandora craze happened, which I believe would die down in time to come.

So yes, we had a very enjoyable short getaway at Phuket to celebrate our anniversary this year 🙂 ❤

Last but not least, I LOVE YOU DEAR AND CHEERS TO MANY MORE HAPPY YEARS TOGETHER!!!

Psst, for those who have been asking about our marriage plans, nope, there aren’t any concrete ones on hand now because the bf is currently swamped up by work and studies and whereas for me on the other hand, I will be graduating with my Masters soon but marriage is not in mind yet either because career-minded me wants to build up and expand my portfolio first while advancing and climbing the corporate ladder. So please do us a favour and stop asking…

5th Anniversary @ Moonstone The Jewel Box

Despite having faced disruptions to our initial plans, our moods were not very much affected in light of our celebration for our long awaited 5th anniversary!

Our initial plan was to head down to RWS Sea Aquarium and then proceed to Mt Faber for our dinner via cable car, which at the same time, we can enjoy the scenic view as well.

But bf was informed beforehand that he might have silent recall on the 9th/10th. We were hoping that it would actually take place on the 10th instead of the 9th on our anniversary.

But life’s like that and is never fair.

He had to head down for his mobilization during some weirdass timing at 4pm. So we could only make do with our romantic dinner.

We wanted to postpone the RWS event to the 10th but both of us were feeling kinda lazy on a Sunday (actually it’s just me).

So here goes with the pictures! 🙂

Sorry for the grainy poor reso picture taken at night with a self-shot camera of iPhone5. 😦

Lighting wasn’t ideal for photography as well.

Sapporo Premium!

Asahi Orion!

This Garlic Fried Rice is a MUST-TRY!

But be prepared for small portion to be served. It was too little for us and we had to order another bowl.

It costs 5bucks. Quite pricey for the portion served 😦

My Wakame Udon.

I’m seriously a udon lover. It’s a must-have dish for me at every Jap cuisine.

But this Wakame – Noodles with seaweed costs 8bucks!

It’s considered expensive for such plain noodles. Other places sell them like 5bucks only! 😦

These yakitori sticks are on the average 4bucks per stick which is quite expensive considering the fact they are so small and shriveled. 😦

The most expensive stick is the 2 pathetic scallops which costs 8bucks! I could have had another bowl of Udon!

Bf said that we might as well get those frozen stuffs from supermarkets and grill ourselves.

Plus, the sauce tasted somewhat like terriyaki sauce can be bought off shelves too.

It was really expensive. I tried googling for more info on Moonstone on its reviews and prices, but nothing much came up. I’d thought 4bucks per stick was alright until I saw the portions. 😦

Reviews

Food : Taste so-so, nothing special, but garlic fried rice is a must try! Oh yes, and there were loads of dishes NOT AVAILABLE!!! I was quite pissed because it was on a Saturday and unavailability of dishes shouldn’t be the case.

Price : Not pocket-friendly at all! But I guess you’re paying for the location, rental and most importantly, the ambience.

However, we were quite lucky because they were having some promotions for the ladies in conjunction with International Women’s Day last Friday on the 8th March! This was only eligible for ladies who dined with 1 full-paying male and was only valid from 8th to 9-10th March (couldn’t remember)! So yes, free dining for the ladies who come with a male companion. So we ended up paying only HALF the price!

I was quite delighted because I was initially upset over the price for the small portions served.

And because of that, we decided to order another garlic fried rice. Haha!

Money ain’t easy to earn and it’s not that we are that poor/miser/cheapskate la, just that we’ve to save up for our future 🙂 ❤

If it’s not for any special occasion, I would have preferred a plate of satisfying chicken rice, over expensive cuisines which do not even fill up my tummy for the price paid. Am not a fussy eater actually, as long I fill up my tummy 🙂

Ambience : Not bad a view but the buildings, sentosa etc were all quite tiny as there was quite a distance. Other than that, not much wind either.

Customer Service : Alright, until 1 of them actually showed some ‘attitude’ when I misheard 50% as 15% and she gave that ‘Are you freaking deaf and we are not so cheapskate’ kind of look when she clarified it as ‘50%’. Whatever.

But another waitress was friendly when requested to snap a picture of us a few times using digi cam and polaroid.

Accessibility : Places such as Mt Faber/Dempsey Hill are inaccessible if you don’t drive/cab.

We wanted to walk down to Henderson Wave but in the midst of doing so, the remote dark roads filled with lots of trees sent shivers down our spines. It looked quite scary. So we detoured back.
