The Two Ks - Kenny G and Kitaro

Sharing the music of the two famous Ks - Kenny G and Kitaro, one western and one eastern. They are my favourites. Have a happy mid week!  

Are those with tattoos or those who smoke "bad people"?

The topic of tattoo has been blogged about in SK's blog here. I have some more thoughts about tattoo, would you relate someone with tattoo to being a bad guy or gangster? In the past when tattoos are not common, we tend to think of those with tattoo as triad member or gangster or "bad guy" but nowadays tattoo are so common as even the ladies have tattoo on them. The same goes for smoking. In the past when we see girls who smoke, we tend to have bad impression of them and think that they are "bad girls" or girls with indecent professions but nowadays more and more ladies are smoking so it is not something new to us. But of course, there are still people who don't have good impression of tattoo and smoking. Don't you think so?

Taiwan Green Tea Cake

This looks delicious but it is another thing in actual fact. Bought this Taiwan Green Tea Cake from Yue Hwa at S$3.90, when I tasted it, I was kind of disappointed, the filling was not rich enough and it was not sweet enough. I have a sweet tooth so I would prefer it to be sweeter. I was deceived by the packaging.

Shopping at ION Orchard on 12 Oct (Monday)

Arranged to meet up with Jose at Orchard MRT before proceeding to the food court for our dinner. I had Indonesian grilled chicken rice whereas Jose had grilled fish. After finishing our rice, Jose ordered Kopi-C whereas I had my Banana Juice (yum yum!). After that, we proceeded to ION for our shopping. We went to H & M, Factorie, Uniqlo, Pull & Bear, Bershka and so on. I only bought two pairs of slippers at 2 pairs for S$10. We went to Kinokuniya Bookshop at around 8.30pm but we did not buy any book this time. After that, we went to Mac for a drink and ended our day of outing around 10.30pm. It is always enjoyable to go out with my buddy Jose.

Banking

Of the three modes of banking, which one do you usually or often use? (1) ATM machine (2) Internet banking (3) Mobile banking Call me jakun, I only just activated my internet banking recently and find it very convenient being able to check my account balances and transfer money using my computer online. I still have not activated my mobile banking as I am quite skeptical about the safety of mobile banking. Of course if I need to deposit money into my account, I still need the physical machine to deposit cash into my account. With internet banking, I am able to cut queues and check my account details and transactions in the comfort of my home. But of course, the biggest pitfall of internet banking is the possibility of hacker. One convenient function of the ATM machine is I am able to top up my transport fare card using the machine. That saves me the trouble of going to the MRT station to top up my MRT fare card. How about you? Which mode of banking do you prefer and why

Cruel Romance 锦绣缘·华丽冒险

Was hooked on Cruel Romance recently which explained my absence from my blog recently, also because I have nothing much to post. This is the synopsis from Dramawiki: Adapted from a Republican-era novel called "The Fate of Jinxiu", Cruel Romance tells the story of Rong Jinxiu ( Chen Qiao En ), a country girl who travels to Shanghai in order to discover why her entire family was killed. Along the way, she meets triad leader Zuo Zhen ( Huang Xiao Ming ), and after a series of accidents and misunderstandings, the two fall in love. Also vying for Jinxiu's attention is businessman Xiang Yingdong, a businessman and close friend of Zuo Zhen. Ever protective of his woman, however, Zuo Zhen refuses to let other men even come close to Jinxiu – which ultimately pays off when a villainous Japanese man tries to finish off Jinxiu and her remaining family members. Have you seen this drama before? I like the lead actor Huang Xiao Ming in the show, he is so cool and handsome, but do
