On the first day of freedom, my true love came to me.
He brought me to…P.S. CAFE~ aaaat Dempsey Road!!!
The ambience was lovely, it reminded me 
of a Midsummer’s Night~ Dreeeeeam…….

Then the strongest winds ever in Singapore’s history started blowing, and L had to drive us back in constant peril of falling boughs and tree trunks. (Still, it was part of the magic…)

Thursday….what did I do? Oh I went to borders!!! Read a collection of (not very) short stories by Catherine Lim, and boy do I have new respect for her. She’s not just a vocal critic of the local system but also a vivid storyteller who paints Singapore as it is. Went on to scan through Paul Coelho‘s latest work ‘The Winner Stands Alone’, which warns about the twin traps of materialism and fame, or rather, people’s obsession with it. Love the laconic manner he describes his characters, a refreshing change from the the dreamy fable-like quality of ‘The Alchemist’.

Watched Taken starring Liam Neeson too. GO. CATCH. IT.

Unforgettably Friday, L and I spent time together in school. Can’t wait for next sem, we’ll be able to stroll around in school together as a couple =D

And today we went to Shang Palace, the flagship restaurant of Shangri-La Hotel in Orchard. The portions were bite-sized but the number of courses was mind-boggling, from lobster and peking duck to…(I dozed off) OK anyway, pics spik a thouzand wurdz, will upload em soon! Complete with reviews and captions =)
