Nyk's visit

Another long period between my last post and this one.

So let's see, what happened in between? Nyk came down for a long-awaited visit and spend three nights with me. We went to the Singapore Zoo as I had free tickets. It was a humid day, made worse by the fact that almost half the Singapore population was there. Well, not really but it felt that way as it was the school holidays and it was also Blood Donors Day and blood donors got free admission.

Still, it was quite fun to look at the animals. Some of them look pitiful though, like the polar bears. They look thin and their fur seem to be falling off as we could see the black skin underneath.

The next day was a Sunday and we went mattress-hunting as Jaded Jeremy needed a bouncier and firmer mattress to sleep on and etc. I brought them to Ikea and let them had their first taste of their famous Swedish meat balls and friend chicken. Nyk loved them!

We went to this quite rundown place called Katong Mall for Japanese dinner. The restaurant was called Wahiro and the menu was extensive. It had a very authentic feel to it. The food was quite good though I would prefer Hamoru in Suntec City.

Other than that, other days have been mostly work. And more work. Last weekend was mostly spent at home to rest as I didn't feel like going out anywhere.

It is currently the Great Singapore Sale. I haven't bought much of anything yet. Which is so unlike me. Heh.

Oh, but I did go shopping for shoes yesterday. Unfortunately, I didn't find a pair which I like. There was a couple which I think were quite nice, but they were really expensive.

I need a break. Though I am not mentally-exhausted yet, but a break would be great. So I look forward to my trip to Bangkok in two weeks time!

Oh my poor blog. How terrible of you to have been ignored and not updated for so long!

But really, it couldn't be helped. Work has been terribly hectic, with me leaving the office after the sun has set and no earlier than 10 p.m. The past three weeks revolved around work, work and more work!

Heck, even my exam was postponed twice! I wanted to take it during the Wesak Day weekend, but couldn't. Then it was supposed to be last weekend. That wasn't meant to be either. It is kind of lucky of me as the exam is online-based and could be taken anytime. But still my exam plans did get screwed up.

As a result, I haven't been watching that many movies. I only watched five. Ironman was great, an unexpected sleeper hit. Harold & Kumar was funny, in a very gross (a lot of breasts!) and straight way. Accuracy of Death has an interesting storyline and a yummy Takeshi Kaneshiro doesn't hurt. Taxidermia was weird but in a good way, with a fire-shooting penis in its first three minutes a prelude to more weirdness.

And I haven't seen my dear for ages. There were times when I miss him badly, missing his kisses and touch. I really wish he could make it next week!

Till the next post.
