CNY post celeb with Thai Friends

Upon arriving at SG, Feb 23, 2007. I sms my friends as to what time we gonna meet up. Good thing I still have 2 hours to go. I arrived SG around 4.30pm. And we all gonna meet at Clarke Quay for reverse Bungee and dinner at Jumbo and anything goes.

First commers, Me and Wit, followed by Oil, Ning, Kae + friend, Kong + 2 friends. A long discussion on who will do bungee.... darn it ends up to only two of us will do it, Wit and I myself. The course was not that bad, and i like it more we are falling down facing the ground hehehehe. For S$40 and a 3-5 minutes ride.... hmmm its ok for first timers like me.

Then we had dinner at Jumbo at boat quay, we ordered: Chilli crab, Cereal Prawn, Scallops with taro, Brocolli with scallops and dessert. Kae was so funny telling her school life that she had a model friend and an actress fro highschool and college which makes her invisible to guy's eyes whenever she is with her model/actress friend (hehehe). Food again! damn making me fat hehehe all of us 9 people shared S$45 for the food. Then ice cream at Hokkaido, I passed this time around for I was so full.

Then we stayed till late night at Moroccan Lounge Bar at Clarke Quay, close to MOS. We had two Shisha and I just ordered San Pellegrino for drinks. Puff, puff puff till we get dizzy hehehe. Well the place has good ambiance and good crown. Though all of my friends are Thai its not a problem is they talk in thai most of the times for 1 will translate it to me in English heheheh. Talk talk talk, laugh laugh laugh, puff puff puff and drink! After we run out of the second shisha we tried to order cigarette, but since its a bit pricy there, so one of us have to go out and buy it at 7-Eleven hehehe good thing was they did not charged us for items bouht outside. We stayed there for 4 hours till 1am.

CNY break

Thanks to the Saturday OTs and thanks to the company's management decision to add leaves to those who went to work in the office during Saturdays from Nov. to Dec. I got 3.5 additional leaves (Oooops make it 4.5 as what my manager emailed hehehe). These leaves I used Friday afternoon last Feb 16, Feb 21-23, Feb 26.

From Feb 17-23 I was on vacation back to my hometown Valenzuela. Mom, Dad ad my Auntie (mom
of my cousin Katrina) picked me up in the airport at NAIA, then we went to Cavite where we had lunch at the same time, farewell of my cousin Katrina who flew for London with her husband. They prepared my favorite foods: crabs and prawn. Aside from eating lunch we had a chit-chat for a while and watched their wedding ceremony. After that, dad drop us at Makati where we had snacks at Venetto and watched Ghost Rider at GB1, while my friend and I wait for my friend Nathan who will pick us up at GB3. Picture above was taken outside of Venetto (John my cousin's husband, Katrina my cousin, me, and my big bro Osmond).

Upon meeting up with Nathan and other gym buddies, we ate at Chimara,
one of my favorite organic fast food before (Before... because their mixture now is different) and I had pesto pasta =). After eating we headed to the Fort for dessert at Krispy Kreme hehehe. And Nathan.... does your company knew that you used the company's Nissan patrol for our Tagaytay huh??? hehehe. After the dessert we went to Embassy at the Fort nice ambiance, though most of the people are high school juniors and seniors who had their prom somewhere and headed there too. We stayed at Embassy till 1am then headed straight to Nathan's pad (thanks for the hospitality by letting me sleep in your own room while u slept at your own guest room tsk tsk).

The next day, Sunday, we woke up around 10am to prepare and meet others at Alabang town center for lunch at Tagaytay at Sonya's Garden. Thanks again for the free organic lunch buffet ill try to bring my folks there too next time =). After the lunch in which I was so full, we went to starbucks overlooking Taal, then to the badly managed Palace in the Sky, then had halo halo at a restaurant overlooking Taal again. Food, Food, Food, waaaaaaaaa!!!! summer is close I need to trim down hehehe. Going back to the metropolis we stop again to Alabang town center where we had dinner at Jollibee in which I had palabok. Then thanks to Alvin for dropping us at North Edsa where my friend and I took shuttle to my place. The next day Monday, I toured my friend around my university, UST, and around Intramuros, Mall of Asia and GB3 where we had lunch with Nathan at Masas (Filipino Cuisine, wow my friend did like sisig) and dinner with my best friend Herbert at Red Crab, and 3 of us went home together. Early morning Tuesday my dad sent off my friend at NAIA, then we ate at McDonald's at Greenhills where I workout as well after our light breakfast. All though out my activity was gym, mall, go to moms office and meet friends, high school friends (barkada).

We had a small party for my dads birthday lat Feb 22, as a gift I gave my zune to my dad, and thanks for joining: Sergio, Herbert and Doc. Theresa =) also to Ramon who joined us at starbucks (tell your boss that theres life after work hehehe).


I went back to SG Feb 23, 2007 having Php20 only in my wallet huhuhuhu. And bringing stuff to the son of my moms friend, like a messenger.... grrrrr.

Normal Weekend Addiction

Feb 9-11, 2007 Activities.
Hangout with Friends/Clubbing. Well it always start on Friday night. TGIF! Thanks God Its Friday, but no thanks if there is overtime on the Saturdays (hehehe). After office I went to gym to take a quick shower and headed to Vivo City Mall at Harbor Front to meet my Thai friends: Wit, Ning, Kong and Kae and more of Kae 3 Singaporean friends. Kae is so active, and a lot of stories to share and also making fun of Singaporean accent, but she herself has it too =D. We stayed in one restaurant facing Sentosa in Vivo City. We ordered a beer each before going to St. James Power Plant Station next to Vivo. We want to be a big group so I tried calling Foyan if she can join, unluckly she was on board flying to Manila; some more Filipino friends but they are visiting a sick colleague in the hospital and others already at home.

Wow prices differ... males pay S$5 higher (hehehe). St. James Power Plant is kinda like MOS. The Latin performers were awesome, good music. And there was also a 'shooting' of a beautiful Thai MTV Vj Sonya Cooling, but I wonder why they shoot there? or its just a public display? Anyway shes gorgeous hehehe she has some angles of similarity with the former Filipino MTV Vj Donita Rose. We stayed long in the hip hop room.

Workingout in the Gym FF/FF+. Workout in the morning or in the afternoon at Paragon, Orchard. This I do on weekly basis. Sometimes I seem y gym buddies in the gym: Foyan, Wit, Naph and Jayson. Lets pump those muscle out!

DOTA. Defense Of The Ancients (DOTA). This is only a map on top of Warcraft III Frozen Throne expansion. To play like LAN over the internet, I use GG-Game Client, there I join in ASEAN rooms preferably PH room. No thanks to the earthquake that shook Taiwan making my connection with the EU run slow. Most of the time I play with other people in the room, sometime with my lil bro in US and some friends and relatives in PH and in SG as well. My ID is 'tukumu'. I can do random selection of heroes.

I play this game after I woke-up in the weekends, at night and sometimes when at home.

Sounds Tripping. Another activity during weekends I like is listening to my music in full volume: Alternative, RNB, Rock, Hip-Hop, Rap, Jazz, Head Kandi, Metal and others, wow almost all genre (tsk tsk). Hope my neighbors are still okay.

Eating. Check this link --> My favorite foods
