Mood - Unusually chatty

Mood - Unusually chatty

A very good morning to minna-hun; boys and girls of all ages and genre~☆!

How’s everyone? Are YOU busy too? <^ω^>o

Is someone giving you a hard time or do you just want to take a day off and spend some time to yourself? <^x^>/

Well fortunately for me, yesterday I was permitted to take a break and chill for the rest of the day until I get my next assignment. So with that, I happily decided to visit Singapore~♫!

I really wanted to visit the amusement park but they only open on the weekends. (Tears) <;__;> Anyway, I arrived Queen street and it was drizzling at the time so I took cover at the nearest row of shops.

From there, I headed to the nearest shopping complex. Truth to speak, I didn’t do much in Singapore. Throughout the my day there, I only:

  • 10% (of my time) - Scouted for clothes. I saw some nice dresses and was very tempted to buy them however, after I tried on — They all made me look fat so my temptations immediately faded away. I’m just not into the whole baby doll fashion. I mean — They look like maternity dresses! <OAO> (Screams)
  • 20% – Mall-hopping.
  • 3% – Food. Of all the variety of food provided such as Mapo Tofu, hawker food, Long John Silver’s… I ended up eating at Mcdonalds along Bugis street. <x_x>
  • 3% – Office intrusion. I entered Park View’s compound.

Office Building

I went inside to look around and I was told that no photography was allowed. It’s regrettable because the interior design of the building was beautiful and they had a pub in the lobby. I saw one waitress there wore a silver gown. “It’s noon now so isn’t it too early to wear that kind of clothes?”, I thought to myself.

It was very grand and I’m wondering now… What office building is this? They had statues of Collin, Dante and other figures outside. I forgot to ask the bellman about that. (Tears) <;__;>

The building from afar

I went pass this building but did not enter.

  • 64% – Wondering on the streets.

Let’s just say — I started my journey from Queen street…

To… ↓

Walk~♫

Freaks

Walk~♫

Walk~♫

Walk~♫ Here, there were so many people staring at me. I guess I intruded the Muslims’ territory and even walked pass their mosque during their worshiping hour. If I’m not wrong, it was somewhere in Sultan street. (Laughs nervously)

Lalalala~

Stop by a shopping mall's loo to take a picture of myself, the great almighty sheep! (Laughs)

Then I exited the building and… Walk some more~

At this point, I disconnected my brain↓

Oh what’s this? Never mind~ Walk walk walk~

By the time I switched on my mind, I found myself in Orchard road… <OAO>

!! e.rai.kot.cha !!

(Laughs nervously)

I wanted to walk back to Queen Street and board the bus from there however — I couldn’t exactly remember the route back. I could follow my instincts but the sky was getting dark. So I took the MRT train from Orchard to Kranji. <_   _>lll

So yeah.. This is Ms.Aya the stray sheep who walked from Queen Street, weaved along every street until she somehow reached Orchard road — unknowingly~☆. ↓

In addition to her walking adventures, she also walked from the Singapore immigration back to JB. Before they constructed the new immigration center in JB, the road was quite short say — Maybe 150 meters. But now — It’s much longer than that AND more dangerous. ↓

There was one particular road that I wanted to take a picture of to show you how risky it is for pedestrians but — It was too dangerous even for me to extend my hand out to take picture. Who knows? The next thing I might NOT see is my hand! (Screams) <O[]O>!!!

Well.. There were a herd of us journeying our way back to JB. So I didn’t feel too lonely and vulnerable. (Laughs)

This is how much our government is concern for us in terms of the pedestrians’ safety. <u_u>

Baa~♥ <—ω—>/

The only thing I bought from Singapore is a wooden doll. ↓ \<´ε`>~♥

It’s a female model~☆! \<^v^>/

Initially, I had the male model in hand and was ready to purchase it but luckily I asked the shop keeper to open and let me see. I then discovered that the feet was dismembered. So seeing that the female model was the last remaining doll — I shrugged and decided to adopt her at the price of SD$51.80~♥. (Laughs)

Mrs. Woody, nice to meet you~☆! ↓

(Laughs)

I’ll be using her as a reference to my drawing especially when it comes to postures~☆!

She can’t stretch too extensively but I’m contented with just that.  <—ω—>V

With that said, always check your goods properly before making a purchase. Don’t be shy to try out the clothes or ask the shop keepers to open the package for you to inspect the quality and its state! \<´v`>~¤

[ . . . ]

PS: Surprisingly, my legs aren’t suffering any pain now. Last night, I was pretty certain that I’ll be immobilized today. (Laughs) I hope that somehow, my legs won’t develop into “The Chun Li’s Legs”! ↓

PPS: I enjoy long walks. What about you? <.__.>{?]

I’m Busy — Not Lazy!

Mood - Lifeless

Nupo! Sheep is not lazy~ It’s just that I have an avalanche of work at the moment. <;__;> (Cries)

I’m so busy to the point I keep postponing my date with the gym. I was suppose to workout last Friday and this Monday however, I didn’t go until today. And to my horror, I discovered that I gained weight!

45.9kg — Can you believe it!? <OAO>!!!

!! Screams !!

Prior to this, I proudly weight at 43kg. (Tears) <∏A∏>/

Anyway, I humbly admit that it’s my fault for not disciplining my eating habits during the wee hours. I’ve been indulging in too many good food lately and my workout has not been as intensive as before. <u_u> Baa…

There you have it — Ms.Aya who gained weight… reluctantly. <∏A∏> ↓

↑ Today’s outfit~☆!

Although I was rather devastated about my current weight, I couldn’t help but to eat a heavy lunch at Nando’s~♫. (Laughs nervously)

↑ I normally add Garlic Peri-peri to my chips.

The chicken in Nando’s is way much better than Kenny Rodgers if you ask me.

Why? It’s because Nando’s provides at least 3 – 4 flavors of your choice; Lemon & Herb, Mild Peri-peri, Hot Peri-peri….

While Kenny Rodgers only consist of 2 flavors; Black pepper or mushroom gravy.

However, Nando’s is more costly than Kenny Rodgers. <_  _>lll

Baa~ Strangely though… When I got home and weight myself again, the machine indicated that I’m at 44kg. <o_o>

Maybe the digital weighing machine at the gym hates me OR it’s programmed to show extra 1.9kg so that the members there will freak out and keep returning to the gym for more workouts? <.___.>{?]

Sa~ <u_u>

I have to go now. It’s time to take Auwlithe out for his evening walk~♥

PS: I doubt that I will be able to post more this week judging by the current workload given to me. So I apologize in advance. I hope to be able to blog more again and sweet heavens, please inspire me to write fun articles in which we all can relate to. <u_u>

Toodles~♥

It’s nearly reaching the demon hour… <OAO>

Oh nu~! (Cries) <∏A∏>

Ms.Aya better tuck herself in bed after she’s done posting this quickie~♥

Baa~

I’ve just finished my latest art work~☆↓ o<´ε`>o

I was listening to “The Watchdog of Hell” by SSH while working out in the gym yesterday. Out from nowhere, I conjured up the image above. Although — it didn’t precisely turn out to be the initial image I had imagined. (Laughs nervously) You see, I wanted to draw a gate as the background with a couple of fierce looking dogs. <^-^>lll

Unfortunately, sheep is not skillful enough to draw such pictures. (Cries) <;__;>

O~oh well… Sheep will draw more pictures in the upcoming days~☆

Oh yes… I listened to Meta B (also by SSH) while inking the art work above. This song is so addictive and it kept me awake until I completed the art work! <´v`>/ *Happy*

Plus, I’m happy to read Dragon Ball Z over again because from Akira Toriyama’s work — In a way I’ve learned to draw muscular bodies for my male characters~♥ (Laughs)

Baa~ <u_u*>

It’s 3:06am already. (Gasp) I need to sleep now~☆

Good night everyone~♫ \<n_n>

Oh wait… This is Ms.Aya — yesterday~♫. ↓

I wonder.. Will there be any difference in me when I wake up the next morning? <.__.>{?] (Laughs)

[ . . . ]

PS: I’ll reply your comments the next time I check my blog. Sheep is incredibly sleepy now. (Tears) <:__;> Sorry… <u_u,>

Korean Barbecue

Mood - Full of energy!

Mood - Full of energy!

Go kigen yo~♫

I’m trying my best to stay as happy as possible so to those out there who are feeling down — I want to share my current gleeful spirits with you however, we both know that ultimately — You are in control of your mood, not Ms.Aya <^-^>lll

Anyway…

For a strange reason, today went by quicker than usual. <.___.>{?]

It’s like not I’ve been doing much. (Laughs nervously) <^x^>lll

Baa~ So before I end my day, sheep would like to blog about her dinner today~☆ \<^v^>/

I had Korean barbecue with my family after we attended mass. This isn’t our first time though. But lately we’re into Korean food because their barbecue steak is really tender and delicious! <•ω•>

↑ The restaurant that we went to had a very nice view. We could see Singapore from where we were sitting. <—ω—> (Laughs)

For those who have never dined in Korean BBQ restaurants before, let me give you a rough idea how they prepare the food for you. <n_n>

Eating at a Korean BBQ restaurant isn’t like eating at any Chinese restaurants where they take your order, prepare the food in the kitchen and then serve. <¯へ¯>

Instead, the helpers will cook the steak in front of you. To be precise, there will be a grill in the middle of your table and on the spot, they would cook it for you and your family~♫. ↓

As you can see from above, there are many other side dishes. Those are meant to be eaten with the provided lettuce. You can select whichever is favorable to you, roll them up with the lettuce and then eat it. By the way, the side dishes are included. You do not have to order them. <T_T>

Now exactly what kind of side dishes are they? Well… You can find sweet sticky anchovies, bean curds, some vegetables like bean sprouts… It varies depending on which restaurant you go to. I went to 3 different Korean BBQ restaurants by far and was served different side dishes. But one dish that remains consistent is the sweet sticky anchovies. <^-^>lll (Laughs)

As for the steak, you can choose what kind of meat you want; Pork ribs, Sirloin beef… If you’re dining for the first time, you might be unsure about the portion of food so it’s best to ask them how many people can eat in one pax. Usually it should be able to feed 3 mouths.. Depending on one’s appetites. (Laughs)

After that, they will barbecue the steak of your choice at your table’s stove.

Some of you might be wondering whether to eat your dishes with rice. The first few times, I was surprised that we have to order the rice separately. But later I found out that adding the rice is going to be a heavy meal because the side dishes and the meat are more than enough. Perhaps you can order soup to go along however…

Here are 2 things to remember:

1) Your dining table is going to be very crowded.

2) Korean barbecue is NOT cheap.

The bill can total up to RM100+ for 3 people. (Gulps)

Oh, one thing I noticed about Korean’s chopsticks. They are kind of thin (and metal too)… ↓

↑ Taken in another Korean restaurant.

(Yawn) Sheep needs to sleep soon. Before I end this entry, here are more photos that were taken at the same day as the photo above~ ↓

The meat is marinated so well with the sauce. (Drools)

Here’s a closer look. ↑ Mouth-watering isn’t it? (Laughs) <^v^>/

Here’s the stick anchovies that has a sweet taste. It’s quite sticky and it might get stuck in your molars. The last time I ate this, I had a hard time getting them out. So be sure to stand by some tooth picks. <¯へ¯>

Lastly… ↓

If you have a dog, please be thoughtful enough to pack the leftover bones for it. I’m sure your dog will appreciate them. <^-^>v

Sheep is done~ \<´v`>/~¤

What to blog tomorrow~kana~~♥ <^ε^>/
