Our Delightful Sunday Nightout

Starry brought me to Holland Village for dinner today.

We had our dinner at Yee Cheong Yuen Noodle Restaurant. However it was not as satisfying as it used to be. The noodle served was not warm enough. Even though I requested for it to be warmer, it was still not warm enough for my liking. We have decided not to patron the restaurant again.

After dinner, we chill out at our favorite hangout place, Starbucks. We had an awesome time reading our newly bought renovation magazine, discussing about renovating Starry's room and enjoying our favorite matcha frappuccino.   

Overall, we have an enjoyable time spent @ Holland Village today. 

I love chilling out with Starry! Yeah! =)

Yummy LaLa Bee Hoon

Starry's Mama was craving for LaLa Bee Hoon for dinner. I immediately thought of this ulu place where we celebrated my Ah Ma's Birthday this year that have really delicious LaLa Bee Hoon. I could not remember the exact location, but luckily Starry's Mama knew the place that I was describing. The ulu place was De'Beer Seafood Restaurant at D'Kranji Farm Resort at Neo Tiew Lane 2.

After the meal, we all agreed that it was one of the best LaLa Bee Hoon we ever had. We love the countryside ambiance there too. A great place to chill out. We will definitely patron the restaurant again for their LaLa Bee Hoon. Yeah!

My Lovely Teacher's Day Gift

Giving tuition can be tough when a student is unmotivated. I am lucky that all my students are those that are striving for improvement and success in their results hence making my tuition experiences more meaningful and fulfilling. 

I was surprised to receive a teacher's day gift from Charmaine. She was one of my sec 1 student who has shown great improvement in her math result. I started tutoring her about 2 months ago after she failed her math SA1. She had an improvement of 47% for her math CA2 and was ranked top 3 in class. I was very proud of her. She has grew from a girl who is not confident and disliked math to a confident girl who love doing math. Yeah!

I love being a tutor as it give me a great sense of satisfaction when I see my students improve and gain the confident in the subject that they once feared and were weak in. I wish to be able to make a difference in as many students as I can. Cheers to my life as a dedicated tutor! =)

Lovely gift from Charmaine =)

My Tall & Cute Little Bro

Jian decided to wear the blue shirt and skinny jeans that we have bought from Natural Project for his D&D. He looks really awesome in it especially with his hair properly styled. Transformation from a cute boy to a charming man. Haha...

August Progress

The 3rd month had passed since I started. It had been incredible so far and really showed me again what I am capable of achieving. So what different did I do for the past 1 month? Basically other than controlling my diet, I started to do more exercises. I began to reach a plateu with controlling my diet as my weight had already dropped about 10kg from 93kg to 83kg after my 1st 2 months, hence I started to include in exercises, mainly just bicep curls, push ups and sit ups usually before I sleep.

 Let's put together 1 month ago and now.

In summary of the past 3 months.

I think my weight has more or less stabilized and size also at a all time low in recent times. It is time to start sculpting it. So for September I am going to maintain the same diet intake and increase the intensity of my workouts. I will probably throw in some jogging and swimming into the exercises. Time to really squeeze those abs out.

D&D Shopping

Jian has asked me to helped him sourced for his nautical themed attire for his D&D which will be held at Holiday Inn Hotel next Saturday. I have asked Starry along to shop with us @ Vivocity.

Our first stop was to filled our groaning stomach with some healthy food. We have decided to drink soupy @ Soup Spoon since Jian never eat there before. Thanks Starry for the yummy soupy treats! =)

Thumbs up for our yummy soupy! =)

We started our D&D shopping soon after our meal. The first shop we entered was Natural Project, a local store selling fashionable men's wear. I spotted quite a few nautical themed shirts and skinny jeans for Jian's to try. After trying out a couple of shirts and jeans, we have decided to buy a blue collar, 3/4 sleeved shirt and a pair of skinny jeans that fitted Jian very well. He looked awesome in it. Yeah! We had settled everything in a shop. However, Jian was not sure if he was going to wear that for his D&D so we went around shopping again. However, we did not managed to find any other suitable attire for his D&D. But as we shopped, we went to take free chiropractic spinal test which got Starry very excited and interested. Starry is planning to see a chiropractor to treat his lower back pain caused by long hours of sitting. 

Before we went home for dinner, Jian treated us dessert @ Honeymoon dessert. The dessert was yummy but expensive. Thanks Jian for the sweet dessert treats! =)

Our cheat Sunday! =(
