What a terrible blogger I am.  I'm trying to get myself back into it but I feel either too busy to blog or too boring to blog (alliteration yay!).

A quick summary to no one but myself:

I left Singapore in August and was in Tokyo for 2 months learning how to speak Japanese and be domesticated.  It was aiite.

I'm currently in California and figuring out a lot of things.  How is time passing so quickly?

5 Weeks of Awesome to Come

Tomorrow is my last day of work before:

I jet off to Koh Lanta, Thailand for a 5-day tropical vacation.  Beach, Thai food, massages, diving/snorkling and a bit of tanning.  What more could I ask for?

Oh yeah, a trip to CALIFORNIA!  I finally get to visit my beloved home!  Family, Friends and Food.  That's the best alliteration ever.

Chibi Girl

Amazing Mom

Best Friends

Oh wait, I'm not finished?  Then I want to do a quick trip to Korea on my way back to Singapore.  Umm, hello shopping and beautiful people??

Not to mention, I return to Singapore the week of my birthday where I've been granted that Friday night and Saturday off.  And the cherry on top?  I have friends visiting Singapore that weekend!  Friends from Bigfoot days and college which just adds to the already wonderful Singapore crew.

March is going to be amazing, I can barely contain myself!

Goodbye 2010, Hello 2011!

What a major lag in updates!

Christmas was as nice as it could have in, it finally felt a bit like Christmas the days of! Christmas Eve was spent cooking and hanging out with friends; I went to a potluck on Christmas Day.  As for my attempt at cooking dinner, I made: 

Roast Chicken stuffed with sauteed mushrooms and onions.  Everything was fine until I had to stick it in the oven.  The ovens in Singapore are apparently way too high tech for me...there were 8 different settings with simplified images that apparently mean something!  Also, the conversion of Farenheit to Celcius might have made a difference.  -_-  I ended up cooking it too slowly so I had to repeatedly stab it to see if it was still bleeding.  By the time it was done it looked like a massacre! 

Garlic Bread: thin slices of a baguette with butter, garlic salt and pepper...I left them in the oven too long and they became croutons for my salad haha.

Salad: ready made!  

Mashed Potatoes: instant (we had no time!)

Gravy: Made from the drippings of the chicken

Snickerdoodle Cookies: My sister sent me a recipe but I think I also messed it up, lol.  They tasted ok though!

So my first attempt at a Christmas dinner wasn't perfect, but it was fun and memorable. A lot of people actually go out and party on Christmas Eve and Christmas (esp since it fell on a Friday/Saturday) but I just couldn't wrap my head around it.  It just didn't feel right!  So I ate and ate and ate instead =).  I should have taken photos but I was too lazy.

New Years Eve was pretty mellow compared to everyone else's stories.  I wore a sparkly dress, had dinner at a friend's, then went to New Asia Bar, which is a bar on the 71st floor.  I thought we'd be able to see the fireworks over the marina, but apparently we were on the other side of the building, lol.  Foiled again!  

What a boring post!  I just wanted to feel like I'm somewhat productive this morning.  I'm still thinking about my New Years Resolutions...hmm, working on it!
