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! πŸ˜€

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

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! πŸ˜€

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 :

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 πŸ™‚ ❀

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…

Valentine’s Day Celebration!

Phew! It has been quite a busy week for me with all the CNY and Valetine’s Day celebrations. So much so that my dark circles are getting the better of me. In actual fact, they are taking over my life. 😦

On a cheery note, let me recap on what’s in for me on V Day 4 days ago! πŸ™‚

Bf reserved a table for two at Beach Cabana (location stated in the menu below) early this Feb during Β 1 of his friend’s bday celebration.

I would say it’s quite value for money! πŸ™‚

Here’s the menu :

Bf took the steak while I had the fish. 2 reasons for my choice was because firstly, I’m more of a fish over steak person and secondly, I can’t chew well with my braces.

The food tasted acceptably well and satisfactory.

Ambience-wise, it was ok. Located at East Coast Park, you can expect sea breeze and dining in an outdoor experience. Only thing was, it was raining. I mean almost the whole of Feb was pouring and still continuing to do so! It’s really a hassle when you intend to head out during this CNY period as well. And worse is, CABS ARE ALMOST NON-EXISTENT!!!

Back to topic, we witnessed a toad hopping around the cafe, but it was alright because it seemed harmless and it was about 1m away from us.

We were welcomed with a bouquet of roses at the table.

Bf didn’t get me any flowers because not all girls expect them on Vday, you know? Moreover, he did present me a bouquet of blue roses for our V day last year πŸ™‚

We think that it’s such a waste of money because they don’t last and usually, keep dried flowers attract icky insects and eventually they would have to be thrown away. Totally not worth it.

In addition, we merely had this simple V Day dinner together and agreed not to buy any gifts for each other. We would rather spend it on our upcoming 5th Anniversary! πŸ™‚

Guess that’s more private, personal and special to us than the commercialised day on 14th Feb πŸ™‚

I had champagne while bf had white wine. Not really a fan of wine. The white wine tasted like a mixture of beer and liquor together. But since bf said wines are beneficial to health, I took some several sips. Haha!

We were first served with ourΒ appetizers. Scallops and cream of mushroom soup! You may refer to the menu above for the actual full name.

Both tasted good. WasΒ satisfiedΒ πŸ™‚

Close-up view of the scallops!

The only thing that annoyed me a little was that the shell was broken and a piece of its remnant was hidden with the sauce and scallop meat and I had chewed on it. Other than that, they were fine, though too little in quantity, haha!

And before our mains arrived, we toasted and cheered for our everlasting love! πŸ™‚

Here comes bf’s steak with pepper sauce. The beady balls are pepper. I preferred his mushroom than mine.

The beef was quite chewy and was served as well-done as requested. But I had a little difficulty in chewing it completely before swallowing it down.

Portion was alright but don’t expect those thick slab ones.

And this is my main dish.

It was rather small in portion. The asparagus were alright, not too hard in my opinion. My mushrooms were a tad too little for one’s consumption and they were sauteed and dried, instead of those served with bf’s main.

This was the dessert – named Coffee Panna Cotta. This was the main disappointment I faced. It was quite small, though I didn’t manage to finish it. It tasted like mousse cake sort of texture and softness. The brown seed was a coffee seed. I wasn’t very satisfied by ending my dinner with this.

Realised we didn’t manage to snap a picture of V Day but decorated 1 of our CNY pics anyway πŸ™‚

Thank you for the wonderful Valetine’s Day dinner as well as our quality time well-spent! πŸ™‚

I hope your Valetine’s Day was as fabulous as mine!

For all those singles out there, fret not. Don’t rush into any relationships just because you are feeling lonely or left out.

Take your time to understand the other party before committing to prevent complications.

My (Advance) Bday Present!

Yipeee! I’m so elated with my new gadget which my beloved bf bought it for my bday present in advance! My bday’s is just next week, while part of me looks forward to it (mainly due to the forthcoming presents and it’s a happy occasion), another part of me is dreading it as well for contradictory reasons – I’M GETTING OLD!

Mentioned before that it’s gonna be my quarter-life crisis and while I’m honest and courageous enough to reveal my age, though not explicitly, there’s something pulling me back all together as well. I think I’ve finally understood how other women feel when asked of their age. As you age, you are just not that ready to disclose your age anymore. Come the next year and the subsequent years to come, I’ll just keep my lips sealed tightly… unless you take note of the calculation from now. Haha!

Nevertheless, I had an enjoyable weekend last week, with Friday going to St James (impromptu decision), bought my present on Saturday and stay home on Sunday for movie marathons! πŸ˜€

Thank you love! πŸ™‚

Movie marathon with Starbucks Mocha Frappe Venti! πŸ˜€

We watchedΒ Cold War, FrankenweenieΒ and The Watch ! Honestly, I love stay home weekends like these. Quality time well-spent together, I must say. Plus, it helps us to save money too! Or more particularly, it’s because we are broke already… HAHA!

But yes, we are saving up for our own individual future as well as our future together πŸ™‚ ❀

Time flies when you’re enjoying yourself and by enjoying, I mean away from work, studies and basically stress. When you’re entrenched in a relaxed mood, weekends just fly by, every-single-time. I loathe that.

Recalling that bf is leaving for bkk soon for 5 days, I’ll be missing him then. A weekend without him seems a little meaningless. But on a brighter note, I’ll be going on a shopping spree with my bestie! πŸ˜€

And hopefully to get myself occupied on days like these and learn to be more independent, no? πŸ˜‰

Plus, am looking forward to my bday celebration with him and my family! And CNY! And V day! And our 5th anniversary come March!

Hopefully things will turn out perfectly fine for us this coming new year πŸ™‚

I love you ❀

I think this picture is sooo cute and true! πŸ˜€
