Two Saturdays ago, #LeKhakis and I were at the newest outlet of Ponggol Nasi Lemak for lunch!
It features a fast food concept and it's the only outlet which is fully air-conditioned, the only outlet with premium house specials dishes and the only outlet that serves sorbet!

Now I don't have to worry about getting all sweaty, and messy hair while having my favourite nasi lemak.

Singapore mourns as founding father Mr Lee Kuan Yew dies

I guess most of us (like me), woke up this morning to devastating news that our founding father Mr Lee Kuan Yew pass away at 3.18am. I sat on bed, in a daze and wished that it was a hoax, and on the other hand, feeling relieved that its no longer painful for Mr Lee.

 photo file_zps153af376.jpg

This is the closest I can get to Mr Lee, taken in Mdm Tussaud's Hong Kong.

And I am very thankful that I was at the Floating Platform last year for Mr Lee's last NDP, that was the last time I was at a closer distance to Mr Lee, but at the same time, he was already very weak then.

I have no interest in political issues but I know Mr Lee is a great man. Without him, there will be no us.

Heard from my mother that my maternal grandparents got married and came to Singapore for a living (all the way from China). They were very poor, and I believe we all know that the living conditions in the 50s were terrible. I am thankful and grateful that Mr Lee came a long way, fought real hard for our comfortable lives right now.

Earlier on in the office, I quickly switched on the radio, Kiss 92 is not the same today, the usual cheerful morning gang is replaced with solemn voices, sad music, and news flash on Mr Lee's passing, followed by PM Mr Lee Hsien Loong's speech.
We also had 1-min of silence in respect to Mr Lee with the chairman of our company.

Sitting here in the comfort of my house, using a MacBook with Broadband.
Travelling on straight roads, no air pollution, clean and green environment, a 9-5 job for most of us, who should we thank? These don't come easy.

Writing this with Channel 8 ''Remembering Lee Kuan Yew - Building a Nation'' playing in the background, is really heart wrenching.

The gloomy skies yesterday right before the storm.

It is a sad day for all of us.

After the storm, hey we are a beautiful city and I am proud of that.

This beautiful city need no edit, no watermark to spoil the picture.

Thank you Mr Lee for these beautiful memories. Thank you Mr Lee for shaping Singapore to a place that we can call our home. RIP Mr Lee.

Joo Bar @ Tan Quee Lan

Address: 5 Tan Quee Lan Street Singapore 188094
Opening Hours: 5.30pm to 12am Daily

Pardon for the lack of updates due to busy weeks at work :(

However, I still will find time to relax and unwind after work. Visited Joo Bar in Jan 2015, I cannot forget the makgeolli cocktails, now Joo Bar introduces a new range - 5 new makgeolli cocktails!

Launched in late February 2015, Joo's new range of makgeolli cocktails is set to excite the fermented rice brew lover even more! Korean bartender Eddy Jang was inspired by the atmosphere of Korean cities as well as districts, and has dreamed up a collection of five tipples that evokes the spirit of each area. The base for each cocktail is Joo's House brew organic makgeolli (also known as Joo Brew) - a cloudy, light-bodied and mild tasting drink.

A zesty drink akin to the artsy vibe of this area, and is a delicious mix of Joo Brew, Grey Goose, Apricot Brandy, Cherry Blossom syrup, Lemon, and fresh Rosemary. This blushing beauty is shaken and served in a martini glass.

Hotline: +65 6536 1661
Opening Hours: 11am to 3am

 photo file_zps792721e4.jpg

My 2015 resolution is to go out for lunch everyday. (I used to stay in to clear my work during lunch which I feel that it's draining to my body.)

So far so good, haven't been staying in for lunch yay! But I was still feeling so tired and mentally drained after a day's work. Or I should put it this way, 3 days rest is just enough to cover a day at work's tiredness. Oh wells, I can never change the amount of work, it just keeps piling up, so badly that I couldn't sleep well at night, I wake up every hourly thinking its time for work. It's affecting me badly because I became moody, all I tell K is "I'm very tired", when booking air tickets, I unknowingly put a wrong spelling. *horror*
