The Dark Knight

"If I happen to fall asleep in the cinema, please don't be surprise, k?" This was what hubby told me late afternoon when we were at Cathay @ Downtown East with me wanting to watch The Dark Knight. I pouted "You don't like to watch Batman?" which he shook his head but I am still happy that he is willing to accompany me. I did not even want to watch Indiana Jones with him the last time instead he caught Sex In the City with me! lovable hubby for u. Always giving in to his wife..

The show is great and not draggy! Even hubby was wide awake the whole time, though at some point the killing were abit ruthless.. the late Heath Ledger played Joker and we both agreed he did a very good potrayal of him. Could it be his hair? Even the voice is different. It is a must watch movie! We will watch Batman Begins tomorrow at Channel 5..hehe

Heath Ledger as The Joker

Tomorrow is another day where we both will 'nua' at home, where wife will make sandwich for breakfast followed by doing laundry and some ironing then off to her pampering facial while hubby will go to his parent's place for mahjong session. Mom-in-law will be preparing Tom Yam Steamboat for dinner!! Yummy.. my 2nd steamboat dinner in 3 days.

Shopping spree

Mom and dad was in town over the weekend and what's better to do than go shopping and eating?

Day 1 - Friday night
Ate porridge (light meal) so that I can eat durian (my dad bought D24 - with buttery taste & Mao Shan Wang) . Finished 2 boxes among 5 of us but no prize for guessing who clean up the left-overs - MUA!

Day 2 - Saturday (9am - 10.30pm)
We headed to Orchard after my checkup at Dr. Soong. First stop, Meritus Mandarin's Chatterbox for Chicken Rice - current promo, 2 rice set for $40, inclusive of 2 lime juice and a plate of vegetables. Dad had Lobster Laksa - which he said is only so-so..
Next up, Takashimaya LV to look at their diaper bag. Still thinking whether to get a Neverfull as a diaper bag or Gucci diaper bag - both costs abt $1K plus. We went to almost all the branded stores at both Taka and Paragon, not sure why but it gives me some sense of satisfaction. Hahaha..
Verne was telling me that Robinson's Centrepoint has a floor dedicated for infants to kids, decided to pay a visit. Total damage: $121.. we bought a Fisher-Price Rocker, NUK Glass Bottle, 2 sets of baby's mitten and booties in plain white and cute statements and a really cute bootie. We settled dinner at East Coast Food Lagoon, we ordered more than we can finish, Satay, Fried Oyster, Prawn Noodles, Chicken Wings, BBQ Stingray & Squid, Rojak!!! All for the 5 of us..hahaha
We finish off the day with grocery shopping at NTUC - since dad drove, decided to buy more bulky items. Hehehe and playing Wii with dad till midnite.

Day 3 - Sunday (9.30am - 3pm)
We left home after a light breakfast to Vivo. Not that those shops are opened, but as my elder sis says, make full use of the time, not sure for wat..but...
First half of the shopping were quiet for us, none of us bought anything! Then I broke the spell by buying a necklace from Martina Pink. After spending nearly an hour at Daiso, we went for lunch and then Let-the-Shopping-Begin.
Mom and elder sis spent nearly $600bucks in a shop itself!!!! *Gasp*..but luckily there is a 50% storewide discount. Both bought a pair of Adidas shoe each and sis even went C & K for another pair of slipper.. She's the winner!!
Mommy Kath did not lose her 2nd spot, bought a pair of rompers and a shirt from Pumpkin Patch and a set of pyjamas and rompers from Baby Gap. Total spending for baby: $130. Will stop buying those branded clothes for baby. Time to tone it down..hahah

Sweet Indulgence 1

Parents came down to SG for a visit and as usual, mom will not come empty handed!!

She marinated few pcs of her best pork chop (secret recipe), a full box of chicken wings, few herbs for boiling soups, etc etc..

Of course, my dad will only buy one thing, DURIAN!!! They were the best I've eaten, even better than "Cat Mountain King" Hahaha.. a picture to let you drool..

Bitter-sweet durian!! I was the one that clean up everything

Parteee Time!!

Today's bbq party was made possible after months of planning and meeting up and budgeting and reminders being sent, etc etc etc...J even booked the chalet @ Aloha Loyang 2 mths in advance so that no one will chicken out last minute and menu was decided month before today.
BBQ isn't bbq if there is no one in charge of starting the fire - who could do a better job than Piggy (Dawn's significant other). He done such a good job, that none of our chicken wings were charred by the fire.

Marcus with Dawn (he's assembling the charcoal!)

Who's the chef?? Andy of course, they came just in time to start cooking. As I am preggy, I don't have to do much but sit down and wait to be fed.. Naturally I feel bad as I am being served soya milk by LT and Eileen and food by my dearest hubby.

Andy with the wok (oopss..tongs)

Gary & Lay Ting

Andy & Shu Yan (Tiger??!!?)

Mommy Kath & Yong Teck

Marcus & Dawn

We were smart of us to order the right amount of food. No leftovers!!! Who could have imagined.. everything is just nice. We finish eating by 8-ish and all decided to have some fun with Nintendo Wii..hehehe, some of them are first timers, it was hilarious watching them..

Battle of the fitness!

Getting so many of us to take a group pix is no easy feat!!!

We're definitely rowdier than this...

That's more like it..

Now... this is the bunch!!
