So fast! Kele is already 2 years old and has been with us for 2 years already! Actually im not sure of his actual birth date. We brought him home on the 27th November 2008 and the lady at the pet shop told us he was 2 months old. So we minus 2 months from November and fixed his birthday on the 27th September.
I remember i was choosing from the many many rabbits at the pet shop in Marine Parade. Most of the baby rabbits were either sleeping or resting, except for Kele. He was so curious, following our fingers around and playing with Dear Dear. That was why we decided to bring him home. We seemed to have this affinity with him.
Kele was so small when he came… He was just the size of my palm…he has grown so much since…
Now, Kele is 3/4 the length of my extended arm!
When Kele was a little baby…
Hahaha Kele was so small…His head and body was one round ball… Now his head and body shapes are already very defined. I remember him hiding behind the box i left in his cage…He was still timid and shy…
The cage was really big for him then! But it was only 2 months later that I gave him a 6 pc playpen instead. He grew really fast!
Kele didn’t know how to hop yet…He walks on his 4 legs…We were wondering why this rabbit walks… hahaha…
Kele didn’t really dare to explore the house when he was a baby. He just walked and explore areas near his cage and moved around Dear Dear and me. (But it was just for a few days… after that he started trying to move over the obstacles!!)
Now… he dashes around the whole living room and study room… He’s the King loh….hahaha…
Baby Kele… and he ate so little….
Kele @ 2 years old….
And so Dear Dear and I went to the pet shop to buy him birthday presents on Monday to celebrate his birthday for him…
Kele exploring his birthday presents —treats and toys!
*looks at the camera*
Gave Kele half a donut to be his birthday cake and gave him his ball that’s stuffed with hay…
Kele prefers the toy to the food…
Eh…… then Kele decided to head to the toilet first…
YES! Kele is toilet trained!
I hung up his toy and he loves it! He has been playing with it for days!
Kele’s daily jog….
Kele plays catching and runs after Dear Dear everyday. They can run for 10 laps without stopping! Maybe that’s why Kele’s groomer always says he’s very muscular, not fat… hahaha….
The boxes on the floor are ALL his toys!! Kele will jump on top, go into, run through them, or try to tear them apart…..
And when he’s tired or whiny…. He will do the classic bunny flop and ask for sayang….hahaha…
I LOVE MY KELE!!!!
I like Stayreal T-shirts ever since Dear bought the Hello Kitty crossover when we were in Taiwan.
He got the men’s version, and he got me the ladies version!
And now Doraemon is celebrating his 40th anniversary and did a crossover with Stayreal and Rock Coco! I like Stayreal’s apparels, and I love Doraemon! I wanna get this leh….
So cute hor?
there’s also the men’s version…
and so many more designs!
Let’s head to Taiwan!
I approached my Dear Dear to help me record a keyboards part for a song, and because its a favour, and I don’t want him to spend too much time on it, I told him to do just a single track will do. But when i came home from work yesterday, he let me listen to the half completed arrangement he did for me. Wow!!! He even did up the basslines and almost everything else! So touched! Its a lot of work loh!
Dear kept saying that its just a simple arrangement. Its simple in his standards, not to any normal consumer out there! Really! It really sounds very nice!
And so while he decided to work on it before having dinner, I was so touched that I wanted to write about it and so I snapped a little photo of him arranging the song!
Eh… Don’t despise this little messy studio okie…. this is where A-Lin and Amber Kuo and the so many songs came from ah! hahahah….
So here I am, the very appreciative and touched girl, blogging about my Dear who spent so much time doing up my little song for me. Thanks Dear Dear!
No he hasn’t gave me the final works yet. Why? Because he still wants to do mixing for me! Dear says it sounds terrible without the proper mixing…
The difference between a professional and the non-professional? It all lies in the details….
Thank you Dear Dear!!
Mayday gathering but.. hmm.. Where’s Ah Quan!? Ah Quan has been hiding at home for the longest time already! One fine day im going to pop over to Bukit Batok to dig him out! Hahaha…. No la, actually I wanna see his pet rabbit… heh!
The girls and Vin met up earlier at Min’s house to settle some business before heading to 313 to meet up with Captain Planet and his pretty and sweet girlfriend for dinner and KTV. This is the first time we are meeting Captain Planet’s gf!
Im going to write about the dinner separately because I wanna rave about the good service, so jumping straight to KTV!
Captain Planet and Captain Sweetie!
My camera love Vin more…. can tell that Vin is very tall and im very short right? hahahah!
Im happy for him! But I think he should meet us more often!
And my favourite girls!! Min, Jun and me!
And a pic with our new friend! ;p
Had a good time yesterday!
Have you heard of WOW? Not yet? its time to! ;p
I was invited to the WOW Blogger Tea Party on the 21st of August and had loads of fun there! The invitation told us it was a product launch, but what product it was, was kept secret till the revelation at the party itself. And so I went knowing that its a girly event (of course I know…guys have got nothing to do with Kotex loh…), but not knowing what was the exciting new product.
Met up with Genevieve first and Charlene came a little later to join us after that. We were asked to choose name tags in our favourite colour and the beautiful ladies at the registration counter wrote our names on it for us. Gen and I chose the same colour (kinda know that we will be placed in groups according to our colours after that! haha!), and hey! Although Charlene came a little later, she actually picked the same colour too!
Our cute name tags! Look at Genevieve’s… Her name was spelled wrongly and so she self-corrected it!
The event was held at Heaven’s Loft, a beautiful place and for a start, drinks were served and there were lots of yummy tea-time snacks and desserts for us to munch on as we go about chatting and taking photos with fellow bloggers and friends. The organisers
arranged a “design your own cupcake” activity for us before the event starts officially and of course, we girls tried our hands on it!
Lots of yummy treats!
Design your own cupcakes!
Charlene taking a photo!
And that’s me! Trying to make my blue cupcake look pretty!
Ta-da! My finished product… Cute boxes were available for us in case we want to make some for take-aways, but i gobbled up mine on the spot… haha…
So many chio ladies at the event!
Me with Charlene
Our pretty host for the day!
And finally, the new product was going to be reveal. Gen and I were guessing what it could be (I think I’ll keep our conversation content to ourselves because…. hahah…). The host mentioned that its going to be the first of its kind and never before launched product. A sanitary pad is a sanitary pad isn’t it? we already have ultra-thins and wings… what else? and when it was revealed…. the whole of Heaven’s Loft went “Wow!!!”. The campaign is so aptly named…hahaha!
And here it is…. Pad’s that are not white! Pad’s with designs! Because, who said pads have to be white?
My personal favourite!
And they come in unique reusable drawstring polybags that carry individual pouch wraps!
There are a total of 6 designs to choose from and day pack and night pack to choose from.
How WOW is that, we’ve been facing white pads for the longest time… hahahaha…
After the product revelation and introduction, we were “sorted” into our colour groups for some other activity out at the balcony area of Heaven’s Loft! Beautiful place with beautiful scenery! Recommended place for desserts and chilling out!
We were given design tools to design part of the WOW collage…
All in our little groups designing… for me… I thnk i messed it up more instead….
And I saw Janet there! Didn’t know that she was with OMY!
And this is me with Alvin from OMY!
Took photos during the event and the organisers printed them out for us before we left!
Thanks to the organisers for the invitation and I had lots of fun at the event participating in the activities and even just catching up with my friends. Oh… I almost forget to mention that each of us left with a huge goodie bag filled with ladies products, a mug that changes colours and even girly things like a floral-printed notebook!

Dear Dear promised me a trip to Universal Studios and he didn’t forget! Weather was wonderful and it was a fun trip!
We were really hungry when we woke up so we headed to the nearest Sakae Sushi to take our brunch first, before setting off on our journey.
And my Dear Dear’s day doesn’t start without some Coca-Cola…
Took a cab straight to Resort World Sentosa. Eh? There’s no more entry surcharge for vehicles entering Sentosa? I wasn’t aware of it but apparently it wasn’t shown on the meter, and cab uncle didn’t get any from us! So if there are many people going together, its actually economical to take a cab!
This is one very touristy photo… hahaha…
Hahah… so now you know who’s paying the entrance fees!
(I shall skip some of the photos of the attractions… they are everywhere! ;p)
We stepped onto the streets of Hollywood first and its mainly shops and restaurants there. Dear Dear and I were saying we should have came earlier and have our brunch here instead! We promised each other to do that the next time… haha…
We turned left first into Madagascar. The boat ride wasn’t ready yet… it says “Coming Soon”… next time la! The Land of Far Far Away (the attraction the im looking forward to!!) is just next to Madagascar and then we saw this just outside the Land of Far Far Away…
An ogre lives inside. Shrek isn’t it? I got curious and asked Dear, “Why is Shrek’s house placed in Madagascar instead of inside the Land of Far Far Away? Wrong area leh…” Dear replied,”Shrek lives outside the Land of Far Far Away… remember?” Ya hor!!!!!!
We are entering the walls of the Land of Far Far Away and saw Dear favourite Shrek character! Puss in Boots!
The castle… where we watched watched the “Shrek 4-D Adventure”. The movie was so funny and the 4-D effects were amusingly funny and realistic too. Besides the common moving seats, there are little “holes” through which water will be sprayed on you when Donkey sneezes in the movie, or where water is needed. I was surprised and it made me laughed so hard. There was a scene where many spiders dropped on the floor and suddenly, there was a gush of strong wind on my legs! I really thought there were spider on my legs and I raised my feet promptly! After which I had a good laugh!! You should go watch this is you are there!
We went into the Fairy Godmother’s Potion Shop, a merchandise shop actually, and spotted my favourite character in the movie… the annoying Donkey!!
Next we moved forward to Jurassic Park. We wanted to take 2 rides there but one of them had a uber long queue and the other said it will get us wet… soaking wet. So we decided to head off to other areas first before coming back for the 2 rides.
And so we headed to Ancient Egypt!
See? 2 hippos!
No more! The hippo rises when the rides moved past to scare people. Nothing scary actually! Some of the people on the little car didn’t even notice! hahaha…
Me sitting at the foot of the huge Egyptian statue…
We went to take the Revenge of the Mummy roller coaster there and it was scary! Perhaps it was my first ride of the day, haha… I was screaming throughout. Dear Dear was laughing at me throughout…
Best ride of all for the moment… waiting for the big Battlestar Galactica to open up though!!
Im an archaeologist!
We wondered through Sci-Fi City (haiya when will the Battlestar be open?) and through to the streets of New York. And here I am when i spotted my favourite shop on the street. My favourite breads, pastries and cakes!
Mr. Freeze is inside!! Beware!!
Taking a rest!
We realized we were Hollywood again and we backtracked to Ancient Egypt again and saw the ultra tall Egyptian..
Back to Jurassic Park where we took the 2 rides!
We took the Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure first since it will get us wet, and we reckon that the second ride will dry us. But I was really lucky! The seat that I was in was a lucky seat! I only gena sprinkles of water here and there, that’s it! Dear Dear was wet, but he wore a dri-fit top and his shoes were pretty water-proof! Haha, lucky us! But there was this very young couple, they really got wet, soaking wet. The moment the ride starts, the guy was already wet. When the plunge came… both of them were soaking wet! And he said, “哇，我的真的是风水位啊……有风又有水….” Funny dude….
We took the Canopy Flyer next. Initially there was a long queue i mentioned? When we went back there again, no queue!! woohoo! Nothing very much… It was fast too! Good la, can dry Dear’s clothes!
Went back to the Shrek area to use our $10 retail voucher.
Why does it look like Dear Dear is holding a weapon?
We used to voucher to buy the Gingerbread Man! He’s super cute loh… and recently Dear Dear has been making him dance to his singing at home…. hahahaha!
Getting really tired already…
Dear Dear took a pic of the castle…
We’ve got a $10 food voucher too and decided to buy Coca-cola in a Magic Potion Bottle! Its so cute! And I’ve been using it as my “cup” at home ever since!
Wouldn’t it be cuter if the bottle is labelled with a potion name?
And here’s the last photo we took before leaving Universal Studios for a scrumptious dinner at Hard Rock Hotel!! Will write about the food another day!
Want to thank my Dear for planning the outing and spending the day with me. He reached home at 6plus (not p.m…. a.m…..) after work and only managed to sleep at 7 plus in the morning. However he still woke up at noon to go for a tiring trip with me. Xie xie Dear Dear.
**Dear was so tired and looked like he was in a trance during the dinner. And by the time we reached home, he threw himself on the sofa and slept for an hour and a half. hahaha…..

And so…what if we do both?
The answer is….. you get 15% off in total! Awww…. not 20%? 10% + 10%=20% ma…..
Although its not the yummy 20%, 15% is a lot too!
I’ll do a little calculation for you. If I wanna buy “The Midsummer Night Dream Dress”, which cost $28, 15% will be $4.20. That’s $4.20 savings! A lot loh! So I’ll just need to pay $23.80 for a pretty dress! Worth it!
And, if i wanna buy the Floral Palette Tube Dress that cost $23, 15% discount will save me $3.45! and I’ll only be paying $19.55! Woohoo!
So don’t wait anymore!

I just bought a toga from BC recently and it only cost me $26! So nice and cheap! But the drop is a little too low and i had to wear a black tube inside to prevent my bra being exposed. I finished it with my favourite black hat, calf length socks with strappy heels! Hahaha… I had wanted the Gwen Stefani’s cool look.
Daphne and me!
Revelation of our secret pals! Mine was Xiaohong! Sigh.. I forgot to go and take a photo with him. But ain’t he sweet? He bought me flowers and pearl powder! I was looking for another of my secret pal (this time im in the know and she’s not…), and I couldn’t see her anywhere. She looked so different and pretty that I couldn’t recognize her even when she was just standing next to me!
