In the past two weeks my ring finger developed some blisters and I went to see a doctor yesterday. 

He told me it was most likely due to my wedding band since the blisters are isolated and I’ve had history of eczema and sensitive skin. The ring probably trapped soap, oil and sweat and caused skin irritation. 

Told Dennis about it and he laughed. 

Me: Doctor said I should stop wearing the ring until the skin heals. 

Him: lucky I didn’t buy you an expensive ring!! See you can’t wear your ring anyway!

Me: *rolls eyes*



Waters Family Day 2016

Went to Universal Studios Singapore (USS) today for Waters Family Day! Dennis has been with Waters for 2 years now and I’m happy he is enjoying his work there. πŸ™‚ The first Family Day event I went was in 2014 and it was held at West Coast Park (I think?) with some game booths and buffet lunch. So happy it’s at USS this year!

We completed both missions in no time and went off from the group to play on the rides. Of course Dennis made me try the ultimate roller coaster aka Battlestar Galactica. :O

Human: 45 mins waiting time
Cylon: 20 mins waiting time

Dennis: “okay let’s go to Cylon!”
Me: *trembling with fear* “no no no I cannoooootttttt!”
Dennis: “you think too much. Let’s go!” *pulls me towards the queue*


I still can’t believe I did it! Dennis kept hugging me and said he’s so proud of me and didn’t ever imagine I would ride with him.

Ok la to be fair I was screaming my hearts out and had my eyes shut 90% of the time. Hahaha. Cylon was the hanging one (scarier of the two) so I could see everything beneath my feet. After the initial drop, my heart was pounding I swear I had tears in my eyes. After a few screams I realized my voice got trapped in fear and I couldn’t make a sound. Have you experienced that before??

I could feel my body being swung left and right, even flipped 360 degrees. Oh my goodness horror story right there!!

We then went back to queue for Human which was so much fun! It’s a seated roller coaster, no 360 degrees flip, speed is much slower compared to Cylon. Managed to open my eyes throughout the ride and didn’t scream at all.

Also tried the new ride at Puss In Boots which was quite enjoyable if only they didn’t have so much stops during the ride.

Happy Family Day! πŸ™‚

Was stirred awake and the first thing the hubby said to me was, “I’ve got a joke for you.”

In my heart I was like wtf it’s 8 in the morning and you already have a joke; did you sleep or not?!

Him: “Do you know why you always get blue-black (bruises)?”

Me: “Mhmm… why?”

Him: “Cos after marrying me you’re Ong Qin (orh-ceh)” *burst out in uncontrollable laughter*

Me: -______-

A Special Couple

Every couple is special in their own ways. I find our relationship unique because whenever I talk about us, I feel that we differ quite a bit from other couples. But I like us this way.

We only meet once a week

Dennis lives about 30 minutes drive from me. I know it’s really not that far, but he doesn’t drive. So a typical journey to my home is an hour. On weekdays we don’t see the need to meet but we maintain close communication. I’ll drop him messages throughout the day and we used to talk on the phone every night. We have so much to talk about. But since he started on his Masters programme, he needs to attend classes and work on assignments so our conversations dwindled. Because this boy can talk non-stop when we’re on the phone. =.=

We’re married but don’t live together

For now. This is quite funny. For our own convenience we choose to live separately until our new house is ready. Every day I pray that we’ll get our keys in November. I can’t wait to build our love nest together! This is something I have been dreaming of for the longest time ever. Yes, even more than walking down the aisle on my wedding day (that’s why I eventually didn’t).

We have our own hobbiesΒ 

I love crafting. He has too many. He likes tinkering with parts of a machine (like a true blue mechie), enjoys dancing, loves philosophical films. Basically stuff that bore me. We’re like opposite ends of a magnet, so different yet we come together creating a strong bond. I love how we give each other plenty of space to dabble in our interests.

People often wonder if we’re even a couple because of how independent we are. I’m amazed by us too.

It’s us against the world baby.

Upon returning from our minimoon.

Me: hey we need to quickly get our baggages and get a taxi before 6am. Otherwise there is peak hour surcharge.

D: huh… Before 6am you get midnight surcharge you know?

Me: no no, midnight is from 5pm to midnight.

D: *rolls eyes* hello!!

Me: really lah, I just googled it! *shows him my mobile screen*

And realized that as I scroll down I see “midnight surcharge from midnight to 5.59am at 50%, peak hour surcharge from 6am to 9.30am at 25%”

Me: eh eh eh! How come!?

D: you never take cab meh?? You don’t know got midnight surcharge??

Me: you always ask me to take public transport to save money what.. Always tell me not to take taxi *sad face*

D: waaaahhhhh! O.o

Saturdate: Mouth Restaurant, Ma La Xiang Guo and Movie

Congrats baby on your new appointment! Couldn’t have been more proud! πŸ™‚

Is it congratulation or congratulations? Hmm.

Okay Google says “Letter of Congratulation” is correct, just like “Note of Appreciation”. But I have doubts about starting a sentence with “Congratulation”.

Popped by Mouth Restaurant to firm up details of actual day setup and flow of events. Dennis was the one liaising with the restaurant manager and making the reservation. It’s a pity the manager wasn’t around when we went down. Spoke to another lady instead and she reassured us everything was in order.

I realized I need a coordinator.

I texted bestie sis M and she readily agreed to help. Love her so much and I’m so thankful to have her in my life. πŸ™‚

Some dim sum to fill our tum tum.

Watched Secret Life of Pets. Like finally! I enjoyed it though I almost fell asleep towards the end.

Ma La Xiang Guo!

The one at Tampines 1 food court is meh. We didn’t like it. Not fragrant enough to be called Fragrant Pot (loosely translated from this dish’s Chinese name).

Pammy shared this recipe with me from Noob Cook. I can’t wait to move into my new house and try this next time!

Speaking of cooking, Dennis and I have decided we will try our best to cook at least 3 weekdays a week. Simple one-dish meals would suffice. No need for typical 3 dishes + 1 soup. Let’s hope we can keep up.

And HDB, when are we getting our keysssssssssss?
