Belated BD Celebration

7 04 2008

22nd March 2008 

Read a review and introduction from ieatishootipost.blogspot.com, by Singapore based food blogger Leslie Tay, on vegetarian restaurant – The Whole Earth (TWE) so we decided to go for it for Senorita-E‘s post BD celebration =)

The Whole Earth is at 593, Geylang Road, located at Lor 29 and 31. It is on the side of the Upper Changi Rd (from Eunos to Kallang), u will not miss the orange sign-board on your right side. For reservation, 68413319 .

The Whole Earth

At first, we were a bit skeptical abt vegetarian food restaurant, since most of us are meat-eaters..  But since it was Senorita-E birthday celebration, we decided to go based on her taste – vegetarian.. Turned out that we really enjoyed the food over there… Yummy!!

A must try is their Olive Fried Rice and Sambal Battered Oyster Mushrooms.. Actually most of the stuffs we ordered are quite delicious… Really recommend TWE to all!! =)

My favourite – TWE Sambal Battered Oyster Mushrooms

Nyonya Curry $14, TWE Vermicelli Mee Suah $6, TWE Olive Fried Rice $6, TWE Broccoli with Monkey Head mushroom $18, TWE Oatmeal Tofu $15, TWE Sambal Battered Oyster Mushrooms $14, TWE Yam Paste and TWE Nourishing Euryale Seed $4.50 each

Happy us with delicious food, great environment..  Reasonable price also … $112 for 6 dishes + drinks + starters + desserts for 4 of us..  Only parking can be a problem here.. but fret not, they provide valet parking, much to our delight (though we didn’t know at first, so we spent quite some time to find parking..)

Happy us with yummmy TWE foodie

TWE Director, Phyllis Ong, was also very friendly and attentive to our needs … Jo even took a stack of her bizcards, wanting to help Phyllis & TWE to distribute to her colleagues… very helpful indeed!

After dinner, the birthday gal was blindfold to the next destination…

Obviously she hated it!! hahaha =p Only Jo and deep-sixed were enjoying leading the blindfolded bdgal!

  

Yes, she was blinded in the car (using my red scarf), and then lead to the building (walked blindfoldedly… I can image how hopeless one can be…) Yes, our next destination is TopOne KTV in Bugis Icon building… Jo and deep-sixed would walk together with Senorita-E slowly to the place, while juskawaime went to the KTV room first and set up the bdcake..

Yess… so that all will be ready when birthday gal arrived…

Surprisee…. =D  Happy Birthday dearie…  *muack*

Video of us singing birthday song to Birthday Girl

Hope birthday gal really like our arrangement..

A birthday kiss from all of us..

 

Really like this shot of deep-sixed… hahaa

We had fun singing songs.. eating bdcake =) Yes.. always remember the little Red riding hood ya.. =) Dunno why Jo is soo joyful in this shot… hahaa

Photo taken by my camera .. using timer.. hooohoooo

Ohh… TopOne KTV has beautiful wallpaper.. and from deep-sixed’s heard-say, they have big rooms with smoke or disco light that we can play around.. Cool… Too bad, we didn’t experience it this time… maybe next time… But I was not really used to their ‘dian ge’ 点歌 … I will prefer KBox or Partyworld…

Beautiful wallpaper, isn’t it?? =)

I have been working in my company 5years 7 months actually!! *Gosh* time flies!!!! So it was 7mths late… haha Together with me, there are also 6-7 other colleagues also being awarded this long service award. We have this group of colleagues from the TAP programme that enter the company at the same time as me (almost)..

And remember the giant ‘God of Fortune’?? Well well..  there seems to be a crowd in front of it… you know what are they doing..?? There seemed to be some glittering papers dropping from the ‘Cai Shen’ so it is as if the ‘God of Fortune’ is throwing ‘GOLD’ to the people below.. So.. the people below are like ‘collecting/rabbing all those GOLD’!!! haha see their hands trying to grasp/catch the ‘gold’.. Some even use plastic bags to collect the ‘gold’!!! haha おもしろいですね!(interesting huh!!)

Good news for Singapore.. We managed to clinch the 2010 Youth Olympics. Singapore likes no. 1.. haha but itis indeed a historic moment for Singapore to be selected as Host City for the inaugural Youth Olympic Games (YOG) in 2010.. Hope with this, Sg Flyer and Integrated Resorts — Singapore and Singaporeans will do very well!! 旺 all the way!!

Singapore did it

Foto extracted from Straits Times

THE news that Singapore waited over seven months for came at precisely 7.11 pm on Thursday, broadcast live via satellite link from Lausanne in Switzerland.

It was delivered by International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Jacques Rogge, who simply said: ‘The IOC has the honour of announcing that the first Summer Youth Olympic Games in 2010 are awarded to the city of Singapore.’

With that, more than 5,000 people who had gathered at the Padang for the announcement, as well as countless others glued to television sets across the island, threw up a resounding cheer.

At the Padang, the reactions of the ‘Ser’ tandem of Singapore’s IOC Executive Board member Ng Ser Miang and Parliamentary Secretary (Community Development, Youth and Sports) Teo Ser Luck, who had been instrumental in pushing the bid, reflected Singaporeans’ joy over making history.

Both men caught each other in a bear hug before jumping up and down on stage, broad grins creasing their faces.

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, called on to deliver a celebratory speech, had to wait a while for the cheers to die down before saying: ‘I need hardly say how happy we all are.’

A smiling Mr Lee, with a miniature Singapore flag clutched in one hand, hailed the win as a ‘great honour and privilege for Singapore and every Singaporean’.

‘For the first time, the Olympics flame will be in South-east Asia, and in Singapore,’ he said. ‘We will be the focus of a new era of sports development for Singapore, for Southeast Asia, and for the Olympic movement.’

He praised the national effort to land the Games – both young and old, from schoolchildren to taxi drivers, were involved, including one 68-year-old cabby who wrote letters to all IOC members telling them why Singapore deserved to be host.
