Cycling at Pasir Ris

Damn it, Pasir Ris is near to my place and yet it took me like 1 plus hour to get there, making me late for my appointment. Was supposed to meet ponyo there at 9+ but I got there like about 10am lor.

It's been a really long time since I cycled and I really wonder if I still know how to cycle.

The scenery here is quite nice and I like this river with the bridge. Surprisingly, guess what I saw in the river? Jellyfish!! There were many and some were big, some were small. I tot that my eyes were playing tricks on me at first but then its really jellyfish! LOL, we spent some time there looking at the jellyfishes.

This is a funny pose lor.

Also, I saw that there is a stable at pasir ris park. The poor horses were tied to the fences or sticks in the ground. Poor horses. They must be feeling very pekcek to be tied down and cannot walk around freely. I will be damn sian if I were being tied to a spot.

This stable also provide riding lessons but that day I didn't see anyone riding the horses.

Then we saw this funny tractor thing. Dunno what this is for and why this is there. Ponyo thinks that it is cool so we took a shot of it.

This is to prove that ponyo really does know how to ride a bicycle. She is a better rider than me tho. Maybe I too long never cycle, abit rusty liao.

This was our lunch~ Provided by ponyo~ Not bad to be having lunch by the sea~

The weather was ok that day, not too sunny. I was so afraid that the sun will burn my skin. I did put some sun block on my face but ponyo didn't so she has to use her scarf to cover her head.

She even got to cover her whole face with it lor. Like she got no face to see ppl.

Our shoes! Guess which one belongs to who? It was damn cool to be dipping our feet in the water. Recently there is a report saying that pasir ris sea is too dirty for swimming. The bacteria level is too high in the water. Heng we that day never go swim there. Else we will be absorbing a lot of bacteria into our bodies!

I would reccomend you guys to go pasir ris and see the jellyfish! They are really cool to watch.

Mt Faber

In case you are wondering why my blog is so lopsided here, I am telling you, I redesigned my header and everything but then I got no time recently to finish it. So I am leaving my blog as it is now for the time being. It's a bit ugly lor. The colours don't match and the picture size doesn't fit. Sigh, I will settle them when I have more time. Now I need to blog. I need to blog before I forget what I want to blog about.

It's been a really long long time since I had any 'excursions' with ponyo aka Yayi. I haven blogged about going out with her for a long long time because she was also very busy. We didn't have time to meet up. I only see her once a week in our singing lesson.

So we made a deal to climb Mt Faber on Teacher's Day. What a way to celebrate Teacher's Day with my teacher. LOL. Asking her why she chose Mt Faber, her answer was very simple. Because it is the shortest mountain in Singapore. It is not even a mountain I think. A hill probably.

The last time we went for a hike like this was on Qing Ming Festival last year. It's more than a year ago! I still remember at that time, she had this 'mushroom' hair cute. LOL. We got too deep into Macrtichie that time that in the end we called a cab in to pick us up. We were too dead to walk out of that forest.

This time, it was an easier quest.

Ponyo said that we must take photo at this very memorable moment. Well, I look like ghost in the photo lor and I dunno why she must hide behind me, making my face look so big and round. Moreover I tied all my hair up, making my face look rounder. She said that I look like I just woke up. Aiyoh.. my god. I should really photoshop this photo but then forget it la. Lazy and anyway not like seeing my 'raw' face is something new to u guys right.

A fleet of vicious stairs waiting for us to conquer it. Actually Mt Faber is really an easy climb. Just go up the stairs all the way and you will reach the top soon. Unlike the one I climbed at China. Gosh. I was so damn tired at that time.

Ponyo says that she loves this bag alot alot and so she must take a photo with it. She bought this bag at a discount but it still cost close to a hundred bucks. The funny thing is after she bought it, she left it at home for a long long time, totally forgetting it's existence until that day she saw it and brought it out to climb Mt Faber.

Finally we reached the top of Mt Faber. Took another photo to remember this moment. LOL.Our next quest was to find Henderson Waves. We took a long time to find it! We followed the signs, walked a long way, climbed a few more stairs before we finally found it. Pony kept complaining about the signboards. She said that they are not clear enough and she doesn't know which way to go. Sometimes there is a junction and there isn't any signs on the junction to tell you which way to go. I told her that both ways probably lead to the same place lor.

Finally, the Hendersons WAVES! We took another photo here to show that we have reached this place.... by foot. HAHAHAHA. And I took a same photo doing the same pose as Ponyo.

I am copy cat!

Isn't the bridge beautiful? With the clear blue sky and the cool breeze which you can't feel. We reached this Henderson Waves at about 11am after walking for about one hour. I think my HP takes wonderful pictures when the sun is bright. Look at Ponyo, walking very suspiciously.

Then we rested on this bench like thing. You can lie down on it and look at the sky. The breeze blowing at your face makes you feel like sleeping.


Ponyo said that I look as it I was being pinned down by some heavy objects.

I asked ponyo what this plant is and she told me that this is 冬天里的一把火. It sounded so silly that I told her I must take a photo of this and blog about it.

Then we made our way down Mt Faber. It was a quick trek actually. We took only like 2 plus hours . Unlike Macritchie, we took like 4 or 5 hours. It was so tiring that time.

As it was Teacher's Day that day, Ponyo told me that SL is treating the teachers for lunch and she said that I can come along. Paiseh lah, I am not a teacher in Siong Leng but I thick skin lor so I went. Hehh. I must take photo and blog about this because we had lunch at May's favourite restaurant, Coca.

Yay~ It was very nice! And we were super hungry after all that walking!

This wasn't a candid shot, she actually did this silly expression.

Yay, very nice lunch thanks to SL! We had a fruitful day that day. After the lunch, I went back home to rest, shower... etc. So shiok lor! Life is good when it goes like this. Hee hee.

Tomorrow I am going to Pasir Ris with Ponyo to cycle. It's going to be an early morning thing again so I got to sleep liao. If not tomorrow I will be too tired to cycle then I will lose to her.. Must sleep now!

Teacher's Day

On Teacher's Day EVE, we decided to give our teacher Ang a treat and we let her choose the place. She pin pointed that she wants to eat Sushi Tei at the Ngee Ann branch. Although there are many branches of Sushi Tei in Singapore, my teacher claims that the one in Ngee Ann is the best. The food seems fresher there to her.

So on that day, DLQ came to my place before we head to Ngee Ann together. Funny, she decided to have a bowl of mee siam before going for the dinner. She thinks that sushi does not suit her and she better fill up her stomach first before going there.

Fortunately ZY doesn't read my blog. Else she will kp her photo look very fat.

Just like what May would have done. And then YH will ask me not to blog her photos. How can I exclude YH in my blog? That is a very difficult thing to do because she appears in my life pretty often.

So yah, YH definitely will appear here one.

Must Li zuan and Zhu Ying appear to be so lovey dovey? Lizuan was very happy. She has finally passed her exams! I have no idea what paper she took but I know that it has got something to do with accounting. So many people around me are doing accounting.

Now that LZ has passed her papers, Teacher Ang will be giving her a treat. So good right? LOL.

That night, the dinner cost about $300 but fortunately, wanxin jie jie got sushi tei member card lor. We managed to get dunno 10% or 15% off the bill. Thank god sia. If not it's very siong lor. I asked teacher if she is in a good mood and she said yes. LOL, there was once I asked her this question and she said no... My god. When she says no, we all better siam far far. Dun get into her way and then kana by her lor.

Did you celebrate teacher's day with your teacher?
