Out of focus

Short Talk: Exams is coming. But first, let’s have a nice meal. 🙂

Out of focus

A lil’ out of focus lately.

But I’ll definitely get back on track again. 🙂

8th and counting.

Short Talk: Manfrotto 055XPROB Pro tripod is really darn good. For more great deals, head on to Cathay Photo Singapore. I actually bought it RM130 cheaper than Shashinki!

Yesterday was a day full of walking and eating. Both of us went to celebrate our 8th month into our relationship. Therefore, we decided to do something special – to eat and enjoy the whole day with each other’s company like how we always do. 🙂

First stop,
————————
Donna Carmela
Pasir Panjang Road

Donna Carmela

I like the location of this restaurant as it gives out the authentic Italian ambience without the lil’ guy holding his schlong schlort.

As usual, all Italian restaurants serve bread with vinegar and oil condiments as pre-starters.

Bread and sticks

I would prefer my bread being served warm instead of cold. But no biggies as I enjoyed the other condiments served with the bread.

We ordered Melon with Pama Ham as starters so that I could break my Pama Ham tasting virginity.

Melon with Pama Ham

The melon was sweet and the ham was salty. Together, both their sweetness and saltiness fused together to create an orgasmic sensation in the mouth. You just couldn’t help yourself but to want more.

Then, came my main dish – Penne Alla Carbonara.

Penne Alla Carbonara

It tasted weird as they used scrambled eggs as their cream base. I would prefer something creamy into my mouth so that the sauce could run through my taste buds for a full bodied taste of delicious carbonara. Perhaps I should start cooking carbonara for myself instead.

Her main dish was Spaghetti Alla Dona Carmela.

The tomato paste tasted generic like it was cooked with Heinz tomato sauce.

Overall rating: 5+1/10

+1 for the orgasmic Pama Ham starters.

Second stop,
————————
Brotzeit
Somerset 313

Brotzeit is definitely my favourite place for German beers. They have a wide range of German beer and they pull my all time favourite Paulaner from the draught machine.

0.3L Original Paulaner Lager

Their beer price is considered reasonable especially if you dine in before 5pm.

The 0.3L pint cost me SGD 6.10 excluding tax.

Overall rating: 8/10

Third stop,
————————
The Muthu’s Flavors
Somerset 313

The Muthu's Flavors

Their main branch is located in Little India, but I prefer the service over here in Somerset 313. On top of that, they were having promotion for their signature fish curry.

Muthu's Signature Fish Curry

To enjoy this dish fully, you have to eat it with Muthu’s very own white rice platter.

Muthu's White Rice

*You can refill your rice upon request at no extra charges.

The rice texture is not too soft nor too hard. It’s fluffiness is just too perfect to mix with the hot fish curry gravy and once you put it into your mouth, it’s just pure bliss.

We ordered our all time favourite Mutton Curry as side dish,

Muthu's Mutton Curry

Honestly, I prefer their main branch’s mutton curry over this. The texture of the mutton from the main branch is much softer as compared to this.

We ordered Pepper Prawn as well to entitle ourselves to the 40% fish curry discount.

Muthu's Pepper Prawn

We didn’t really enjoy this dish as the taste was quite plain. However, we did enjoy the dining experience at Muthu’s Flavors.

Give the fish curry a try and I’m sure you’ll love it!

Overall rating: 8/10

Short talk: Tomorrow will mark the beginning of the e-Learning Week. Basically it’s like another recess to us. But the lab sessions screwed up my plans on going back. At least a nice buffet steamboat is on the way. 🙂

I hate semester two every year because the holidays kinda shorten the semester.

Just not long ago, we I had one week break for CNY holidays.

Then after another week of school, we had recess week.

Two weeks later, behold the e-Learning week.

Perhaps it’s time to stay alert and be:

Focused

Let there be light.

Short Talk: Just watched Alice in Wonderland 3D and I’m so eager to learn Futterwacking. Read here for more!

It’s been a long time since I last experimented with lights.

The Necklace

It can be a frustrating experience when you do not have a light stand and you have to juggle with lights and cameras. Somehow I feel that I should get something more powerful than just speedlites.

Perhaps a Ranger Quadra and a big nice Octabox. Hmmm….

Early morning shoot tomorrow.. *yawns*

NYE @ Wala Wala

Posted by admin in Celebrations | Tagged , , | Leave a comment

Short talk: Still couldn’t where my photography senses are heading. On the other hand, moderate loss big win! That was how I ended this year’s Lunar Chinese New Year. Two partners in crime – my mom and I, double dragon. XD

It’s funny to see how I blog, it’s March already and yet I’m posting something about the New Year’s Eve celebration. Guess I needed a longer holiday than the current one week break.

New Year Eve's Survival Kit

We thought that Wala Wala wasn’t going to charge us cover charge. But we were wrong! Tracing back to our ancestors’ footsteps, we both decided to act like one and did what we thought was economical – sharing a bottle of wine.

Oh by the way, my accompaniment for the night was De Zien, the masked Zorro.

The Masked Zorro

Why Wala Wala on New Year’s Eve and why De Zien?

First of all, the train was so packed with foreigners that I nearly suffocated on the way to Wala Wala. Secondly, I didn’t want to be the “ah kua” bikini girl being groped by a bunch of banglas at Siloso Beach, Sentosa knowing that I’m a Kua as well but definitely not an “ah kua”. This is because I don’t ahhhhhhhhhhh… when I speak, period. Try talking to an “ah kua” and you will know what I’m trying to say.

The Crowd


Wala wala was first introduced to me by my cousin and later on, it became one of our (De Zien and I) favourite hangout spots. They have nice bands performing on Saturday nights and their drinks aren’t overpriced except during special occasions.

Duet


Nice rack flat bottom

During intermissions, we were too bored and decided to snap some photos to fill up our blog quotas beautify our blogs. Being singles(partially for me because she was away, ;P) for the night, we looked like a pair of gay couples with our gears hanging low on our necks. On top of that, we couldn’t resist ourselves from flashing consistently in such low light conditions.

Nowonder the girls refused to look at us. Le Sigh..

Do-Re-Mi

And so that was our New Year’s Eve celebration,

Auld Lang Syne

how was yours?
