夜空里的漫步

该入春的那一晚。

夜空里的星星不多,但微风阵阵的吹着,挺凉快的。

她们在一个不起眼的小公园见面了。

似乎三个星期没见了,当碰面的一刹那,她兴奋极了。

当他关心地问候了一句,

“你近来好吗?”

她真个人都化了,仿佛在记忆里快消失的那熟悉的声音,她又再次听见了。

她不知有无比的开心,不知是否是幻觉,便悄悄地捏了自己的手臂一下下。

啊 … 果真!这不是一场梦!

他就一个大男生穿着非常朴素的T恤和卡其色的短裤配上一双无名的拖鞋,

手里还拿着在充电的手机和充电器,

站在她的身旁,一同在公园里漫步。

他:“对不起,我近来真的太忙了,该做的是多的连睡眠的时间都被消化了…没空见你。”

她: “无妨,只要你心里有我,即使百年才能见那一次,我也开心,就好像此时此刻,无比的可贵。”

他:“你好傻呀 …”

她便微笑了因为她就是那么的单纯可爱。

他:“傻瓜,让我背背你吧, 看你也走得累了吧!”

她爬上了他的厚厚的背上,感觉好温暖,好踏实。

走着走着,忽然他不小心失了足,差点就把女生给掉了下来,简直是吃了一场惊!

她:“放我下来吧,我想你也累了…”

他:“好吧,我们去那秋千歇一会儿!”

她坐上了秋千,他偷偷在她的背后微微地推了一把。

她:“啊,哈哈,你在干什么!”

他静静地一句话也不说,当秋千开始慢慢地荡了下来,他又用力再给她推了一把。

秋千越荡越高,胆小的她虽然有点还怕,可她一脸幸福开心和那灿烂的笑容把害怕给掩盖了。

他们俩就像回到了童年的时光,一位小女生和男生一同在公园里玩耍,简单朴素的快乐。

多么羡慕啊!

7-11: Butter Chicken Briyani Review

Do you guys realize that SG’s 7-Eleven has finally up its game with its pre-packed food on the shelves?

It used to sell pre-packed food but nobody actually pretty much take a good look about it because it was either NOT NICE or too expensive… BUT NOW, everyone seems to be raving over their Butter Chicken Briyani and because it sounded so good, I decided to give it a shot too!

(FIRST up, sorry guys, great apologies for the disgusting look on the photo, I accidentally kind of spill the gravy while carrying it on the way home as I did not had microwave at home so I heated up in the 7-Eleven and hence there was some holes between the plastic cover which I did not realize. 😦 )

Appearance wise, the rice definitely look fluffy and soft, definitely exceeded my expectations of hard and dry rice which are pretty much how pre-packed rice would be like. Unlike what’s is photographed on the cover, it does not have any onions, just butter briyani on one side and the other, the long grain rice.

The gravy was good in consistency, pretty thick as I was expecting it to be really runny. Hahaha. There’s plenty of chicken chunks in it, they were cooked till really soft and tender, probably like how simmered chicken meat taste like. The meat still holds well together, without falling apart with a bite but I wish it could have been more chewy though. Of course, the gravy and the rice just goes simply so well together and I even cut some cucumber cubes to go along with it.

My Verdict?

Yes, you should totally give it a try!! Skip those unhealthy instant noodles, this is totally worth the hype for just $3.90 probably a 10cent cheaper than your regular zi-char takeaway. 😀

 

What is your love language?

Just on April Fool’s Day, I was having dinner with the girls and as we were chatting, Siru asked Yunteng and us, “What is your love language?” and she told Yunteng, I know yours is definitely physical touch since you love hugging your boyfriend and we all started giggling when she blushed. And then she started denying haha.

I was clueless about what does love language meant and asked Siru to explained and I even looked it up on the net as well. Actually, love language is probably something really interesting and incredibly true get to know yourself better and to let someone know what kind of person you are. There are 5 love languages:

  • Words of Affirmation

Receiving words and encouraging compliments that will make you feel better, like “I really miss you”, “You’re the best girlfriend/boyfriend I ever had”, “You’re the prettiest or most handsome”…

  • Quality Time

Spending time with him/her while giving the FULL  ATTENTION of yours, with no distraction from phone, messages and puts any important tasks at hand aside to keep him/her company.

  • Physical Touch

Like appropriate touches, hugs, pats, brushing of hair and kisses. This one is pretty straightforward, hugs and kisses in fact brings people closer and foster a stronger bond… so some people might prioritize this as their way of expressing and affirming their love.

  • Acts of Service

Actions speaks louder than words, when a promise to help is being completed in reality, this is when a person has actually proved his love through his actions. It can be simple actions really like helping her to get something, or do a task. Like when she’s is having sore throat, you actually buy “herbal cooling tea” or lozenges and delivers it to her.

  • Receiving Gifts

A gift sometimes is a symbol of love, the kind of gift that is chosen expresses how thoughtful and detailed he/she is in observing her preferences, likes and needs. It could be a simple handmade card, a handwritten letter or something that caught her eyes at a retail some day when you two were shopping, receiving gifts would make her thrilled.

And so, I went to complete a quiz (http://www.5lovelanguages.com/) to actually find out which one was my love languages, although I always prized companionship as the most important factor which is somewhat falls as “Quality Time” and “Acts of Service”.

True enough my results were as followed:

Your Scores
11 Quality Time
10 Acts of Service
5 Receiving Gifts
3 Physical Touch
1 Words of Affirmation

The highest score being 12, I believe Quality Time is something I values the most and with one point away marks Acts of Service. I think it’s really true, I used to always believe that actions speak louder than words and that any promises are empty promises because only when they are fulfilled or done, it will be worth its value. Of course, putting time aside behind all the busy schedule and devoting some time to spend with me is probably something that I cherish the most as compared to words of encouragement or praises. Monetary gifts isn’t something I truly need as compared to a handwritten letter or a card made with lots of effort and time spend and hence probably explains a 5/12.

Well, I think I really like this because I get to know what is everyone love languages and how to affirm their love, this would most likely allow me to know how to handle each and everyone differently, especially like Siru, I never knew she was someone who values Receiving Gifts and Quality Time but now that I do, I probably mail her start mailing her letters and cards on random occasions. I guess finding out your love languages and others can somehow help to bring friendship or relationship closer…

So what is your love language? 😉

Felicia’s Birthday

This is probably the first time I’m celebrating Felicia’s birthday together although I have probably known her for nearly 2 years, where the last one she celebrated with her bf. This year, we celebrated on the 1st of April (2days before her actual) which happens to be April Fools Day and thank god the girls didn’t had any tricks and mischief up on their sleeves, else I will be really pissed. :/

The plan was to have just a simple dinner together and probably some drinks thereafter and because Felicia didn’t like sweet stuff, we didn’t get her a cake. So, I decided to get her a small bouquet of blue roses which I ordered and had to picked it up after physio that day, and traveled from like TTSH all the way to Seng Kang which was quite far a distance before heading to Holland V. (I know I’m un-employed, so I can’t really afford any huge bouquet, just something small to mark my sincerity as I knew she always mentioned how as a girl, she has never received flowers from any guys, so I shall be the first to do so then.) 🙂

(Blue is her favourite color…)

Anyway, before that night, I spend my entire evening and night making a card for her which I saw on one of the facebook videos that someone shared. It just happened to be so timely and I just learnt and picked it up in no time!

It’s not really very pretty in terms of the colors combo as I did it last minute and didn’t plan the colors but it’s a really good effort for my first attempt on such a card!

We had burgers at FatBoys since Felicia suggested it as it would suit everyone’s taste because Yunteng had kinda alot of food that she avoid so Fatboys would probably be a good option.

After dinner, we had some drinks at a random ktv pub in Holland V called King’s. The girls didn’t really stayed for long because Yunteng had to head home early to send her parents off and Siru had project to be done the next day, well as for me, I didn’t wanted to be the lightbulb for Felicia and Linc so I left with Siru.

(Sorry Felicia, for leaving early although I promised to drink together on your birthday!)

(Ps, I know the photo quality sucks because the lighting was terrible.)

Happy Birthday Felicia! ❤

Thanks for being a good friend, someone who is spontaneous, fun and full of laughter. 😀
