Beautiful Weekend

Saturday

Didn't eat much lunch/food for lunch. Woke up at almost 12. Haha... Was saving my stomach for dinner! It's Mel's birthday! In the end, I had milo and some biscults and Dearie had instant Indo Mee Goreng. :P Mel was going to treat us dinner at Blok M, an Indonesian restaurant at Prahan. Is quite near Chapel Street, at Commercial Road. Heard it's accessible by Tram 72. Hmmm...

Anyway, the food was great! Or should I say the company made the evening a blast. The food was like normal malay food back home. The dishes are beef bee hoon soup, oxtail soup, lamb curry, deep fried catfish, fish in tomato gravy, "chaota" sotong, chicken satays and chicken skin satays. Don't ask me how to eat the chicken skin, it just went into everyone's stomach! Haha... All the saturated fats are in our body that night. :P Had a little white wine too. It was a feast I tell you. And of course, what's a feast without laughter and jokes right? :)

On top of that, the boss of the restaurant came out and gave a little performance for Mel! Haha... It went:
" Happy Birthday to you...
Happy Birthday to you...
Happy Birthday to you...
Happy Birthday to you...

Happy Birthday to you...
Happy Birthday to you...
Happy Birthday to Mel Mel (Miao miao... hahaha)
Happy Birthday to you..."

We were like the main attraction in the restaurant for the night. Haha... And Mel was suppose to sing us a song! But she was so shy, so Raymond helped her out and sang 2 songs! "Stand by me" and "My Way". I wonder why he chose those 2 songs. Not really related to Mel right? Haha... :P

Went over to Yih Hong's place and there was surprise awaiting for Mel! Li Ying (Yih Hong's younger sister), baked a nice orange cake with orange icing and chocolate topping topped with sliced strawberries. Was really nice. I guess it was baked with "LOVE". :D

Oh, they had a black cat named Oreo! Was so shy and so cute. Hmmm... It kinda look like the cat from Sabrina the teenage witch. Hehe... Except that Oreo is much cuter. Oh, it's a he btw, and still a kitten which is really quite big. On it's way to become a cat. Oh... I should say, the cat has become a eunoch. Poor thing. :S

Sunday

Woke up late as usual... Dearie and I had planned to go to Springvale to buy seafood to bake! As in make it like BBQ.

Headed for Springvale at about 1.30pm. Had a Shanghainese lunch. Duck noodle soup and hot and sour soup. Ehhhh.... The food was not good at all. Will not go there again I guess. Or maybe, we just ordered the wrong kind... :S

Walked around the complex at Springvale, bought a cup (like the bubble tea cup size) of sugar cane. MAN! It was $3!!!! Grrr.... Even Newton is cheap and we're complaining that it's expensive. BLEAH....

We had planned to buy crab, prawns and calamari. Went around looking for the best bargain. Bought 1kg of Banana prawns, 700 grams of blue crab (look a little like flower crab except that it's blue in colour), bought one calamari and one big live Mud crab. Haha... Don't ask me why we bought 2 types of crab. We were just PLAIN GREEDY! hahaha...

Later, we went hunting for the best tomato sauce and chilli sauce. Haha... You know, different got different taste! Bought Maggi chilli sauce, Maggi chilli and Garlic sauce and Kimball's Tomato sauce. Haha... Oh, we also bought the traditional thai sweet chilli sauce too! Hehe... :P As I said, we were greedy. :P

Went home and Dearie play Doom3 on his Xbox for awhile. I couldn't stand 3D games, so I took a nap beside him.

Then it was time to work. We "deshit" the prawns and stuff it with butter and garlic, cut the calamari and soaked it with butter and a little salt, as for the blue crab, we bathed it with butter and a little onions. Oh... and we SLAUGHTER the MUD CRAB. It was so poor thing, because we couldn't kill it at one shot. It die a slow and painful death. Then we decided to chop it into 2 so that it can die instantly. :S

Dearie cook the mud crab while I "BBQ" the food with our oven. Hehe... Imagine the feast Dearie and I had! Haha... So greedy man... Watched Star Wars Episode 1 while eating.

Life's good. :D But oh shit, I have been eating UNHEALTHLY! :S BLEAH.. Time for school now. *groans*
