Artistic pics of leechie at Table 66 were taken by Artist Veron =)
Amused with this lamp o.O
Had a good dinner with Veron at this nice european casual dining restaurant "Table 66"...well, the prices dont look casual at all though =.=" n she was lamenting abt dining by ourselves...with no cutie guys to complement the nice ambience of the restaurant -.-"
There aint any pics in the menu...so i had to use plenty of imagination...well, according to veron...atas restaurants dont put pics in their menus o.O" After muchie deliberation, I decided to order their famous duck meat main course...tt was a really good choice...really v.yummy!!! ;p they do provide customization of main course...cos i asked for brocoli to be replaced by potato croquette =) the food was sooooooo tempting tt i forgot to take pics before eating it...n i had almost gobbled up most of the duck meat when i realized tt i had yet to take any pics -.-" well, a big boo boo for any foodie blogger ya =.=" but we all learn from mistakes ya...will take pics of yummy food the next time ya...meanwhile, u juz have to imagine how yummy the duck meat main course was...keke ;p
Veron ordered the dinner set which came with a soup, appetitizer, main course n dessert...I was quite amused to watch her eat the squid ink spaghetti appetitizer...her teeth n mouth turned black...yes, literally black @.@" well, she said tt it was v.tasty n appetitizing...well, a gentle warning -> a lady shld never eat this on a date lest she doesnt worry abt scaring away another potential date...but try this by all means if u dont fancy tt guy ;p
Wanna thx L'Officiel mag for the Table 66 dining vouchers =)
It was quite dark in the restaurant so i couldnt really get nice shots on my Sony Ericsson Vivaz x.X"
This is the atas Fiji mineral water which has a price tag of $4 o.O
Veron's dessert which took quite a while to bake in the oven o.O
Attended the guestlist-only private club night party at the new Sky Bar VVIP Lounge at RWS...blur leechie initially thought tt Sky Bar is at Ion...well, turns out tt there is really another Sky Bar at Ion...well, shall explore tt Sky Bar another time ya ;p this Sky Bar is on level 11 of Hotel Michael at RWS...really love the beautiful pool n nite scenery o.O
Such lovely nite scenery ♥♥♥
leechie posing by the lovely pool =)
Check out the cool crowd at this guestlist-only party B-)
There is even a nice bed in the lounge area o.O
I would love to visit this Sky Bar again...but preferably not on a wet fri (it was drizzling while we were there which kinda dampen the party mood =.=") Veron's Korean colleague happened to be in town this weekend...so we brought her around rws abit =)
Some pics of rws taken by leechie ;p
Guess where is this place at rws? ;p
Artist Veron commented tt this pic is nice =)
Chanel fine jewellery boutique at rws ♥
Cartier boutique at rws ♥
Wanna guess what i bought for leechie for V day? ;p well, nobody bought leechie anything for V.day so i had to buy leechie something ya x.X" Bro Justin happened to be in the romantic city of Paris during the V day period...so i got him to help leechie buy somthg back from Paris...make a guess what he brought back ya? ;p i havent take pics yet...shall post up soon ;p meanwhile keep guessing ;p
Bought this BCBGMAXAZRIA Royale Silver Bracelet Watch in a moment of weakness x.X" i thought it looks pretty...n leechie finds it hard to resist pretty stuff ♥
Check out the cool box B-) n my leechie mum warned me not to bring this box out when i wanna bring the watch out for strap alteration =.="

Can u spot leechie in the crowd? my leechie eyes n hands were glued to my mobile phone cos i was attending to sms queries on my networking event held later in the evening =)
Niu Er lao shi came to sg last yr but tix for his talks were all sold out before i could get any...so this would be the v.first time tt i'm showing my leechie face at lao niu's talk here o.O gotta thx Audrey for helping me book the tix n reserving seats...i was late for his talk today manz...so paiseh manz...cos attended Yue's opening party yest n drank abit too muchie (they were serving buffet n freeflow Martell drinks)...was nursing a hangover...as well as tending to calls n smses since 7+am this morn cos i was running networking event later in the evening o.O
Leechie has always been v.amused by why Niu Er lao shi refers to himself as Lao Niu...lol...learnt tt he's already 44 yrs old...but he has such good skin...n looks sooooooooo young...hmmmm, he can easily pass off as a 30yr old! o.O he started by sharing the various sources of vitamin C...white fungus n chicken soup...was quite surprised by the white fungus mask thingy o.O" he's v.warm n hugged many of the participants who went on stage...a participant was so excited with Lao Niu doing demo on her face tt her shoe fell off n she looked really nervous...lol ;p he did demo for massaging techniques on a few participants on stage...i rem reading somewhere tt he wakes up at abt 6am every morn n spends quite alot of time on his skincare routine...i already wake up at 6am every morn...was telling Audrey tt leechie gotta wake up at 5am if i were to do all the "patting" n massaging thingy tt he did @.@" but i admit tt leechie no hav massaging kungfu skills (btw ladies, i observed tt many tai tais hav v.good massaging skills ;p) Lao Niu did mention abt how Kose's massage gel can help clogged pores...now this got a leechie curious...will most probably go buy a tube to try out with my leechie lousy massaging skills o.O"
Lao Niu was really v.humorous...n he speaks better english than some Taiwanese celebrities...btw, was telling my leechie mum tt leechie's going to see Lao Niu in action...n my cynical leechie mum commented tt Lao Niu doesnt look as handsome as Kevin lao shi o.O" but the entire auditorium was packed with alot ladies n a few guys today...Lao Niu's really v.popular here! o.O saw tt Emily's v.happy while standing next to Niu Er lao shi...think she's one of Lao Niu's v.faithful fans who bot tix to both his talks n she even bot the vip tix today =) she was saying tt she was so happy tt she couldn't zzz after taking individual pics with lao niu ;p
Was lucky enough to be standing next to Lao Niu for the photoshoot...see his hand on my leechie shoulder? ;p Noticed tt he has v.good skin when i went to shake his hands...but when i got close to him, i could see his crow's feet n laugh lines o.O hmmmm, after meeting both Lao Niu n Kevin lao shi in person...leechie still prefers Kevin lao shi!!! ♥
It really warms my heart to receive the following word of thanks from ah boy:
"Thanks Tono Leechie for the book you gave me years back. It really taught me a lot. Provided me with so much insights and exposed me to things I never knew of. It really is an awesome awesome book! :D"
No offence to all consultants...
learnt on sun tt consultants "con" n "insult" ppl
then yest veron who once was a consultant said tt consultants bend high n low n provide extra services n charge by the day/hour juz like pro....e (u can pretty much guess which occupation she was referring to ya?) ;p
Bro's job description of consultant:
"i showcase what i can offer, customer choose who to engage, i deliver the required service while ensuring high satisfaction, and get payment after i had delivered my service
guess what profession is this?"
Btw, customer service here in sg can b rather appalling at times...i had a horrible experience at the Chanel counter at Bugis the other day...n here is a fren's real life experience at a local gym:
"Gym Customer Service: Hi A, you want to renew your gym membership??
A: Let me think about it.
GCS: Why must think???
A: Because I think your front desk guys are very unfriendly.
GCS: Is it?! Eh, you know they also think you are unfriendly!
Pardon my bitchiness here...posted as requested:
"Attitude of the chanel SA at the bugis outlet on 13th Feb evening simply s.u.c.k.s!!!
i passed her the print out from cozycot which states clearly in black n white abt the entitlement of samples...apparently her english is soooooooooooooooo bad tt she couldn't understand what was written n claimed tt only those with the mailed chanel postcards r entitled to samples! she had to call other more senior SA for help...n she even had the cheek to ask me if i had already gotten the samples from other outlets! but not everyone is as cheapo as she thinks ya! she is sooooooooooooo snobbish n gave u a "r u sure u can afford chanel" kind of look! i was thinking of asking for her name so tt i could write in to Chanel to tell them abt how lousy her attitude is! but i think i have better things to do than to waste my time over such a SA who thinks damn highly of herself! her behavior simply left a sour taste in the mouth n would definitely let ppl think twice or thrice before shopping at chanel...not sure if tt is what the folks at chanel have in mind by having such a poorly trained SA to represent them! they can definitely do better by having SAs who have better command of english n who understand what customer service is abt!"
"When you truly know yourself, able to accept and love yourself unconditionally, you no longer need to feel approved by others. You will have peace with yourself." ~ Joshua
My response to above quote:
what i learnt 1 or 2 yrs back is i dont need to live by others' approval of me =)
n there r still ppl who juz wanna provoke me...i juz think tt they muz b v.bored n ignore them...but they feel more pissed when i ignore them o.O"
Damn good quotes...esp for those ppl bitching abt a leechie:
"It's not about who is real to your face, it's about who stays real behind your back."
Some ppl r sooooooooooo damn political tt it's such a waste of their talents not to b in politics instead!!! -.-"
Btw, having a caustic tongue doesnt make one a lemon...otherwise it would b like saying tt every guy who has a moustache is ur dad ya...lol ;p
I did NOT sign any release form n yet the events company took candid video shots of me n will give com organizers a copy of it...excuse me, but isn't this an invasion of privacy? everyone is laughing at all these candid video shots of me n i have become the laughing stock! n since there r more than 200 ppl there...y the focus on me instead of the other 200+ppl there? what a brilliant well-planned scheme to make me a laughing stock! well done! i've become a sacrificial lamb for their entertainment! i wonder how would they feel n react if the same thing were to happen to them someday? r there even any human n legal rights to speak of in this biased n prejudiced society? frenz told me to seek legal advice =.="
The hard disk of my silly Dell lappie crashed! -.-" crapz

"It's a wonderful feeling when you can be firm yet genuinely compassionate with someone who seems to be your enemy, who's been speaking ill about you, aggressive with you, made things difficult for you, been unappreciative of what you've done for the person, been rude & disrespectful towards you, & harmed what's dear to you.

Motivating Quotes from Steve Jobs:
"You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma,whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life."
"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking."
"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart."
"Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
