I went on an excursion today! Lol.. To Qian Hu Fish Farm.. That's at like Chua Chu Kang I think.. Was there for a KM excursion to look at the KM practices that their owner, Kenny Yap implemented. He gave a 15 mins talk, we had a 10 mind Q&A then he had to rush off for something else. He was wearing this shirt with the Qian Hu logo at his left pocket and this tie with the words Qian Hu in Chinese and a gold fish.. :P

Anywayz, the most interesting part of the excursion is looking @ the fishes.. Took some interesting pics.. Hee..

This 'Premium High Gold Cross Back' arowana costs $3888!

Probably can't see clearly but this arowana has a wavy spine structure on its back..
Looks weird and it's not for sale...

Look at the lips of these fishes.. Don't they look like they got lipstick on? Haha.. Vain-pots...

Qian Hu's definition of a good fish... :P

Wow.. Pretty pretty fishes.. Very bright too...

VERY BIG jia sai he (eat shit fish)...

The fishes are swimming in circles... Dunno why also...

It was a very short excursion trip (and memorable one as well where the bus was late for a whole hr!) and a pretty good way to end this summer course. =)

Started development work oredi.. Programming was smoother than I tot it would be.. Even though when I just started yesterday, I spent 3 freaking hours on a bug! Programming on .Net is much easier than JSPs and ASPs (just some other programming language).. This one, you can just drag and drop, drag and drop.. Progress is pretty ok on my side.. =)

I tot it would be more logical to have pics and blog post together but then I will nv do it again.. The pictures start appearing in weird places when I upload them and I have to keep shifting them to the right place.. Argh.. Shall never try this again.. =P

Baby, Bryan and Yong Tai...

Me and Baby...

11:49 PM

Just came back from Xueqian's birthday chalet.. Somewhere near Tanah Merah, I think it's called National Service Resorts Country Club or something.. Can't really remember.. =P

Met Baby and Bryan @ Tampines Mall after his work this afternoon to get Xueqian's birthday gift and to make my new glasses... Bryan wanted to get a bottle and some coloured paper to make hearts for his girlfriend's birthday so we went to Popular with him to select the bottle and get the papers.. After that we had lunch at the food court where I also taught Bryan how to fold the paper hearts.. He had quite abit of difficulty getting the hang of it but eventually he managed to do ok.. I suppose.. Hehe..

After which, Bryan went back home whereas Baby and I continued to shop for Xueqian's gift. We finally bought him a Nike top, a vodoo doll (Rodeo Boy) to give him good luck in his love life and a birthday card. Baby wanted to buy me Outfitter Girls T-shirt for our anniversary tomorrow cos I really like their tops but the designs that I wanted didn't have my size.. Sigh.. Think cos their counter in Isetan is small so probably dun keep too much stock ba..

We then went to make my glasses at Century Square. I saw this frame that I really liked but it was pretty ex.. $178.. I hesitated for very long then Baby said that if I like it just buy it and he will give it to me as an anniversary gift for tomorrow.. =) Thanks baby! Love ya loadz.. *muaks* Baby also bought a pair of new glasses for himself. He didn't have the intention of changing glasses actually and was just trying some frames for fun.. But he really like this pair of Levis frames plus I feel he looked really good in it too and since his glasses are already a year plus old, we decided it was time to get an eye check and make a new pair.. So we both ended up getting new glasses.. =) Both black rimmed too hee.. But I think Baby really looks good in his Levis.. Can't wait to collect our glasses next week.. Hee..

We then went to NTUC where we got a tub of 'Rum and Raisin' ice cream which I have been craving for a very long time.. Bought bubble tea and sat down to eat and drink. After which we travelled to Tanah Merah MRT to meet up with Crystal, Yong Tai and Bryan to head to Xueqian's chalet.. It was the usual eat, talk, play cards, eat cake affair. His cake was from 'Awfully Chocolate' and heard he ordered like a 3-4 kg one which costs $180!

Ok.. some random pictures..

8:48 PM

It has been totally madness for me the last few days as I was trying to churn out the presentation for my KM module and juggling that with FYP and work committments. We initially planned to do a ppt + video presentation but changed our mind last minute and decided to do a full video presentation hoping that we would not need to do the report (Prof mentioned in the first class that we could choose to submit a video presentation or a 25-page report) and just do the Straits Times editorial. It is really NOT easy making a video (I dun mean the Windows Movie Maker type). The video has to be pro enough such that it can substitute our report. Storyline, words, videos.. even music plays a great part in the overall feel around the video. We struggled till 1am last night in school but was still not able to complete the video. In fact, it was only 1/4 done. We then wrote our storyline for individual categories and gave it to Robin to edit. We headed home and continued to search for pictures, videos and music relevant to our presentation and send them to Robin online. I went to bed at about 330am and met up with the group at 830am. Just half an hour before class started. We did a few changes here and there and covered up some mistakes of the final video and proceeded to present our video. It went ok I suppose. We are rid of the 25 page report and just need to submit a 6-8 pages "fun" article suitable to be published in magazines and newspapers. Finally.. KM is (almost) over...

FYP was at the back of my mind this week (even though it should not be). But KM presentation totally occupied my mind the past few days and I gave minimum time to FYP. I gave just enough to finish up my assigned work and that's it. Will have to start giving it more attention starting next week. We are kinda behind time in our development and need to really progress quickly.

I still cun shake off the dreaded summer feeling though. Totally dun like FYP. =P

Baby is having his riding practical lesson now as I blog. BABY JIAYOU!!

Shall post some random pictures I took... =)

Baby passed his RTT (Riders' Theory Test) on Saturday! Yipee... He mad one la.. He went in and finished his paper in like 7 minutes!!! That's 50 questions, although MCQ but still, it's madness la! 7 minutes for 50 questions is like 240 seconds for 50 questions and that's like abt 5 seconds for each question!!! Got no words to describe how speechless I was when baby msgd me to tell me he going in to do his paper then like 7 mins later he called me and said he finished and he passed!! U are the smartest man baby... After his paper, baby came to school to fetch me (I was having KM meeting in the morning).. I treated him to the very "thumbs-up" chicken baked rice sold in smu's kopitiam and also to dessert (mixed fruit combo).. It's nothing 'wow' but to us it was considered our little celebration =) Baby: So proud of you for passing the test (at lightning speed) and jiayou for the rest of your practical lessons!! *muaks*
*Blogspot is getting quite sucky.. I posted abt baby's RTT pass on Saturday but the post din appear even though it's on my list of posts.. So I've deleted and reposted it again.. :P

So many things to do and so little time.. Sigh..

Yesterday was Mother's Day.. We went for dinner at the Marina Bay Zhen Fa.. It was freaking crowded man.. Bro waste money la.. He kept eating crabsticks and only crabsticks..

After which, Baby and I headed to the other Mother's Day dinner with his parents, uncles, aunts and grandma.. We were too full to eat oredi.. I managed to squeeze abit of food oni.. Had 'Zhu Chao' @ Bedok.. I ended up being the baby sitter for Baby's fourth uncle's baby girl.. I carried her during CNY and she looked so teeny.. Now she looks so big le! Babies are soooo cute.. She kept trying to squeeze her clenched fists into her tiny mouth.. Haha..
