Ma Maison – celebrating bro’s birthday

went to Ma Maison’s today with my family to celebrate my brother’s 24th birthday.
It’s a pretty nice place with awesome decor and it serves Japanese-Western food!

the menu actually came in a leatherbound book which was WAYYY AWESOME!

here’s how the deco looked on the inside!:D

We ordered the chef’s pizza and it was soooo good!
Real Italian  style complete with the thin crust!!
pair it with cheese and you’ve got HEAVEN! 

Dad and bro had clam chowder soup as well and it was good!:D

Mummy had the sirloin steak, daddy had the seabass and bro had the hamburger steak while I had the tonkatsu curry and the tonkatsu was WAYYYY GOOD!!!!
IT WAS JUICY, TENDER AND ALL YOU COULD EVER ASK FOR!!!:D:D:D:D

and last but not least, I shall put a photo of myself! MUAHAHAHA. :p
really becoming increasingly vain as I grow older >.<

love,
jane

the cat someone got tired of…

went for dinner with mummy at the coffee shop and on the way back, we saw a “new” stray cat at our void deck waiting for the uncle to come down to feed it.
I was pretty shocked as it was really really pretty and had a super bushy tail that only meant one thing…
the cat had been abandoned by its owner.
the cat was really friendly and craving attention. It kept meowing pitifully and rubbed itself against us over and over.
my heart really broke for the little kitty…
all i wanted to do at that moment was to scoop it up and bring it home but cause of certain restrictions in my home, we decided that it’s better not to have pets.
sigh.

I decided to bring my camera and take photos of the kitty cause it was really so pretty and friendly!


lost and forlorn


no where to go.


longing


the cat someone got tired of…

i really can’t believe why someone would want to abandon their pet.
imagine carrying your pet downstairs and just letting it go.
It’s really such a cruel thing to do!
If you really cant take care of your pet anymore, the least you could do to repay the love that the animal has shown you is to find another loving home for it or at the very least, bring it to the SPCA.
although there are people who will feed the strays below my block everyday, it doesnt mean that leaving your cat at the voiddeck with something to eat is enough.
IT IS NOT!
if you will not abandon your child, how can you abandon your cat who is a part of the family?
I really cannot understand what the owners were thinking.

I took some other photos since I was already at the void deck with my camera in hand.

void deck friendships.


heading home.

so that concludes my photo taking for today!

anyway, I only have one more paper left and 12 more days to HONG KONG!
HAPPY!:D
can’t wait!:D:D:D:D:D

love,
jane

in a moment

i took this photo when I was in taiwan earlier this year and I was pretty impressed by these youngsters who were performing acrobatics on the street at the Xing Kong Mitsukoshi XinYi  for tips.
It was hot and humid and yet they were unfazed and kept performing stunts and acrobatic tricks.
I guess that is what it means to be young – be daring enough to chase your dreams.
and in that moment, that young boy inspired me.

love,
jane

gonna go back to studying

Closer and closer to freedom

So it’s currently three down and one to go!:D
I can just taste the freedom in the air hahahhaa.
So i’ve got three days to study for dfd and finish it on friday and then study for biz law!
It feels so good knowing that the holidays are so near:D

Anyway, one of the things that I did while taking breaks in between studying was to watch hair tutorials!
I figured that since I bothered to leave my hair so long I should learn to do up my own hair nicely:D
So i learnt an awesome way to do a wraparound pony that doesnt need bobby pins and doesnt drop!
(see pictures below)
(it’s a little messy cause i was lying down on the bed before this hahaha)

and here are some random pictures from this morning when I was getting ready to go to school.. HAHAHA. Too happy that i’d be done with yet another paper.LOL.

really cant wait for the exams to end..
I havent had a proper holiday in a really long time and I’m really in need of R&R and days of no worries.
Once the exams end on next wed, I’m gonna bring my camera out and go on photowalks:)
Do things that I always wanted to but never managed.
I will live life to the fullest!

love,
jane

One Sunday Afternoon

(haha i put this picture here cause I thought I looked super innocent here hahaha)

So anyway, I’m now in the midst of studying for tomorrow’s paper and i’m excited to say that I only have 12 lectures left to study!:D which is actually not alot considering my other module (DFD :/:/:/)
So I decided to reward myself and take a little break before I go through some more stuff 🙂

Service today was really really really awesome!
Ps shared about the art of praying and his message really made me feel the urgency and that I should pray with more fervency!
God wants to hear prayers that are passionate and not weak.
We have to pray and show that we really really really mean it!

In other news, while I was taking another study break, I decided to do a recording of bless the broken road!:D
I think I look funny and somehow my webcam didnt sync the video and my voice together properly…
OH WELLS..

Bless the Broken Road Cover

Song: Bless the Broken Road
I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn’t see how every sign pointed straight to you[Chorus:]
Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

I think about the years I spent just passing through
I’d like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You’ve been there you understand
It’s all part of a grander plan that is coming true

[Chorus]

Now I’m just rolling home
Into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you.

ok so now i have 11 more lectures to go.
wish me luck!:D

love,
jane

1 down 4 to go!

cooked this yesterday but was a tad too lazy to upload the photo cause it’s only ONE photo hahaha.
(man… really really mad love the picture quality from my Olympus EPL-1 <3<3<3… ok i digress)
in case you were wondering, it is not just an ordinary bowl of instant noodles!
In fact, the only thing here that came from the packet of instant noodles is the noodles! *beams* (ok people may be starting to think that I’m mad.)
The soup base was actually lovingly boiled by my mum over the weekend using chicken breast, onions, carrots and radish and then she filled up several tupperwares and them into the freezer to freeze the soup so that my bro and I can cook by ourselves and not have to eat out!:D
MAD LOVE MY MUMMY! *kisses*
So my mum also bought other ingredients such as mushroom balls (as seen above) and beef balls but cause I felt that I needed to have some veg, I went to buy some broccoli to add into my dish 😀
and of course, the most precious egg was not forgotten as well!:D
mmmm… love homecooked meals:D

Well today was the first day of the exams and it already feels like my last>.< gosh.
After SP today, a few of us namely Gims, Gen, Brandon, Sherman, Wei Liang, Vincent and Sze han went to have lunch at Ajisan at THE CLEMENTI MALL cause Sherman DROVE! YAY FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE CARS AND CAN DRIVE! (of which criteria i totally do not fulfill :/ )
so anyway we ate and talked and gossiped really happily and after that WE WENT TO PLAY BISHI BASHI AT THE ARCADE!!! hahahhaa.
It really seemed as though our exams are over when in fact, we just started.
oh well.
i must start psyching myself up to study for pharm anal. I MUST I MUST I MUST!

I CAN DO IT! I CAN DO IT! I CAN DO IT!

love,
jane

ps: still missing my iphone really really really badly.
