Heard so much about the hype this movie made, and I had my reservations. After all, we had seen how much success Monga and Cape No. 7 had made in Taiwan, but failed to kick up a storm in other countries as it was more relatable to the Taiwanese.
So watching it with lower expectations than what I made out to be, I was in for a treat.
The pace of the movie was reasonably good, by carefully detailing the phrases of growth by the protagonists, as well as carving out outstanding personalities in the film. The love story of Ke-Teng and Shen Jia Yi was subtle yet sweet, and it filled the movie with many touching, hilarious, warm and beautiful moments.
The director also brilliantly weaved in the brotherhood among the guys that would definitely bring back recollections of our youths on how we used to hang out with our closest buddies. Despite going on their separate ways, they still remained tight towards the end.
This movie was based on the true story of the Director, Giddens Ko, himself and it is interesting to see his memory projected on that screen.
I guess towards the very end, every girl would have hoped to have a Ke-Teng for herself, just like how I felt at the end of the movie.
Go catch it if you haven’t, definitely not a film to be missed!
Celebrated the November babies (Edmund, Xuanya and Marshall) with a (pretty failed) Amazing Race, and we ended off the race with having a meal at WineBos located at Katong Village.
We were told by Caiyan that they served sirloin steaks at only $9+ from 6-9pm on weekends and I would say it is value for money with the standard of steak served.
I asked for my steak to be medium rare and I was delighted at how tender the beef felt in my mouth. Only thing that I wasn’t very pleased with was the gravy the accompanied the steak. It was a tad too salty and made me really thirsty. However, there was a generous portion of fries that made the meal a hearty one.
(Didn’t manage to take any pictures of the steak due to the poor lighting ): )
Some of them also ordered Brownies with Ice cream for only $5, and the warmth of the rich chocolate really put a sweet end to a satisfying meal.
There was also a live band for music-lovers, soccer channels for football fans, and also a rich selection of wines for the wine-connoisseur.
I’d give it at 3.5/5 (That’s pretty good in my standards I’d say :D)
It’s an overdue post with Graduation Night 2011-Hollywood Glamour! Held on the special day of 11-11-11, P6s were treated like superstars in a Hollywood setting!
Five months of preparation were finally put into action in bringing to the P6s of NLPS a night they would remember.
It was hectic, it was insane, many things cropped up, but ultimately the P6s did enjoy themselves, and we only have them to thank in order to make the event such an amazing one for them.
Despite organisational difficulties and challenges, I am glad that the organising committee all learnt something, and it is these experiences that will be brought over to future graduation nights to come. Till Graduation Night 2012 comes, enjoy these pictures! (:

This is the man behind the event.
And of course there’s the always busy lady behind the scenes.
Yes it is amazing that at my age, I don’t know how to cycle! Well it can’t be helped that my cousin decided to push me into a drain while attempting to teach me cycling when I was like, 8? I was literally scarred for life emotionally!
Well, so due to an event coming up this Sunday, I decided that it would be a good idea to take up cycling so that I can save myself from walking long distances in Sentosa. Thanks to the always ‘steady’ Salvo people, we met up at Pasir Ris Park to do some cycling.
Weather has been erratic for the entire month, but thank goodness it was bright and sunny yesterday, which made cycling a fun affair. So, newbie Jessica and I were brought to the “training grounds” and our drilling began…
Voila! We managed to learn how to cycle in a straight line, and eventually we got the hang of it and ventured out further into Pasir Ris Park. Got into a few minor accidents here and there, but I escaped unscathed. It was pretty awesome cycling against the breeze and it kind of made me regret why didn’t I take up cycling earlier.

Replenishing the liquids because it was so hot!
Despite the sunburns and the aching body, now I am proud to say, I can cycle now! 😀
Writing has always been an interest. So here it is, a blog to record things that are going on around, and sharing my thoughts on them. I guess it’s a fresh change from my teenage blogs where it basically functions as a virtual diary!
I’m still growing, still learning, and still watching! (:
