BYE 2012!

Summary of 2012

2012 sure was a very fast year! Though there were ups and downs but still the year was considered great! Was also my second year as a stay home mum. What's most satisfying in 2012 is that I get to watch Clovine grow up for the second year and she sure did grew up alot! From crawling, learning to walk, walking to running and even jumping!

To sum up 2012 in short,

Clovine:
- First Photoshoot with Studioplay
- went on her first plane trip to Hongkong!
- knows how to address each of us in the family
- can now walk and eat on her own
- started talking
- went for her first contest and appeared in Magazine and banner in Ngee Ann City
- celebrated her 2nd birthday!

Hubby:
- went on his first trip on a plane to Hongkong!
- got a new and better job
- gets to off on Sunday and has more time for us
- grew fatter and fatter. Lol.

I:
- partied for the first at club with my girls on my 19th birthday!
- managed to slim down my waist from 27.5"inch to 25"inch!
- weight from 49 kg to 44kg!
- passed my BTT

US:
- Went to Hongkong in February! Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4 & 5
- Went Ipoh in May and in August again!
- Went Zoo, Gardens by the bay, Jurong Bird Park, Puteri Harbour Part 1, Part 2

So its quite obvious 2012 was mostly spending time with my family and watching Clovine grow up even more. But in the coming 2013 its going to be a big difference for Clovine and myself as Clovine is going to start school on 2 January and I'll be holding a part time job and continue-ing my studies in pursue-ing a diploma! Yes 2013 is going to be my first step into my future!


OH AND THE WORLD SURE DID NOT END IN 2012! 

X'mas w the babies!

Met up with the mummies and the babies last Sunday for our Christmas meetup and exchange at Causeway point!
Same place we met up at for Christmas dinner a year ago! 


 Cranky Clovine because she wants to play at the playground.

Swensens for lunch same dining place as last year again! Lol.

 Merri-mint! Yummmmms.


After lunch brought the kids to the playground just outside Swensens for some fun!

Toddlers having some fun!
A year ago they were still crawling around, now they are running!

 Yixian's Enen is the only cooperative toddler who poses for camera when asked to!

 BOO.


 Rayvelle and Jerbel!


 Lol I dont know why the kids are so obsessed with sitting on the flowers.


 Seee! Super cooperative de leh! Super good with poses. Lol.

 And my Clovine is only good with cheeky faces. Lol.


 Captions please. 
"Up, up and away!"
"I'm the king of the world!"
"Listen up yo, Clovine is gonna rap!"
Lol.


 3 Little tigresses climbing up the mountain!
Jerbel was behind them if you're wondering why there were 3 tigresses.
LOOK AT TIGRESS CLOVINE! -.-

 Told you Clovine is very good with weird and cheeky faces. Lol.

 Gifts exchange time!

 "Hmm which should I pick?"


 Then comes Rayvelle...

 Followed by Enen the super model. Lol.


 So cute with all her poses!

 Photo with the mummies and non cooperative babies.





Clovine passing the babies the presents!
So adorrable to see the kids interact!

Might not be so actively updating my blog as my lappy has been sent for servicing AGAIN!
Can still blog using my old 10"inch lappy but the screen is so small and I kinda hate blogging with small screen!
But I'll try my best to blog as I don't wanna lose readers just like the first time my lappy went servicing.
Oh and help me click on my nuffnang ads! Thanks! :D

Yanntorng turns 20!


Met up the girls for dinner last Friday to celebrate Yanntorng's birthday a day earlier.
Many might think she's the same age as us but she's actually older than us by a year or technically just a few months. Lol.
Can't believe she has hit the "2" in life already and in a like 2 months time is my turn. 
To be honest, the "2" figure is kinda disturbing to see for me and many says once you hit the twenties, your life would zoom past very quickly :(((

So we headed to Brasserie Gavroche for dinner which is also Hubby's workplace! Was kinda awkward in the beginning as all the staffs were like staring at us from the kitchen hole as we're sitting right in front of them! Lol.

The Birthday girl.

With our gift :)

Assiette de charcuterie et cornichons, 24
Platter of cold cuts and pickles
Cold appetizer and champagnes are complimentary from Chef Frederic 

Yeexin helping Torng wear the gift from us!

So nice right? It's from Agnes.B 

Vol au vent au homard et fruits de mer, 29
Lobster and seafood with béchamel sauce and puff pastry
Something familiar for me which I told them it's a must try!

Complimentary :)

Saumon d’Ecosses aux lentilles vertes “du Puy”, 31
Pan seared salmon fillet with green lentils “Du Puy”

This is what's in the pot. Quite surprised that I liked the green lentils on it cos I've never really liked vegetables ;/

Bavette à l’échalote et pommes de terre sautées, 32
Grilled Angus flank steak, shallot confit and roasted potatoes
An alternative choice of beef other than the usual steak. 
Juicy and tender!

Cabillaud aux champignons et blettes, 36
Pan-roasted fillet of cod fish with mushroom and Swiss chard
The cod fish is so smooth and soft damn yummy!
For those who like light and healthier meals.

A little surprise from Chef Frederic for the birthday girl!
Yanntorng thought we planned it but we swear we didn't and we were just as surprised. Lol.
But the name was spelled wrongly! Must be hubby who told them the wrong spelling.
LOL
Oh but the cake is damn yummy!!!! All of us loved it! Think you might have to preorder it before your visit :)

Happy birthday love!!!


Happy birthday to my best girlfriend since Primary 5.
You know you're very important to me and I love you!
Thanks for being there for me and you know you can always count on me when you need someone!
LOVE YOUUUUUU! *MUACKS!

My one and only girlfriends <3 p="p">


Hope your wishes do come true :)


Happy girl with her gift. Hope you like it!


After dinner, we headed over to The Cathay, St.Games for some workout!!!

Polaroids for the day!






Now for some Kinect dancing fun!!! Lots of hilarious pictures!








All of them looking very happy especially yanntorng. LOL



The kinect's dancing games are so fun!!! Really made us perspire and feel less guilty after a sinful dinner!
Now I'm so tempted to get a Kinect bundle because its so good for work outs!
Too bad hubby sold his Xbox months ago if not I can just get a kinect which is cheaper :(
Anyone wanna sponsor me with a Xbox Kinect bundle? 
Obviously.... no.... :(

Sure had lots of fun meeting up the girls each time!
If only nothing would change even in a few years time.

#OOTD Agneselle's Off shoulder dress!
Love it so much! thank you Peiling for meeting me up to pass it to me :)


Happy birthday my precious girl, hope you enjoyed your birthday! 
XOXO
