On Monday, 20th May 2013, J & I went to the Airport to pick up our customer. I had breakfast at Burger King. Thinking that J would like hash brown, I got 2 x sets of that from Burger King. In the end, he didn't even take a single piece, leaving me to force feed myself!
My customer didn't want lunch and so, J & I headed down to Jones the Grocer at Mandarin Gallery for some light lunch.
Tomato & Basil Soup
To be honest, this is THE best tomato soup I've ever tasted! Sour but not overdose.
This is how tomato soup should taste!
Some Croquettas with Cheese Thingy
Once broken, it looked this way.
Cheese tends to make me feel sick of it easily.
There were 3 pieces and I felt like puking after 2 pieces.
I finally gave the last one to J who happily chew it all down.
Memorable not because I've candies, not because I've new clothes, not because we went to catch a movie but because I'm now a member of my church! I've waited for at least 2 years for this!
Happy? You bet!
Today marks the 1st day I had my holy communion and I treasure such experience. I hope to always be and remember to be thankful whenever I have holy communion. I was so happy and thankful, I shed a few tears when I did my prayer back on my seat. Emotional with a good cause.
I'm very happy and God is good to me and my loved ones.
J managed to get a parking space in our church. Mind you, it's tough getting a space on normal days. Furthermore, today's confirmation day and it's crowded! God works in ways one cannot understand sometimes. J managed to get a parking space just before the exit barrier!
We got a parking space in Takashimaya (parallel parking) and the space is tight. When we were done with our shopping, we were greeted with a pleasant sight. J can maneuver the car out effortlessly as 1 car right in front of him has long gone and the owner of the car in front of that car is in the lift with us and so, when we got into our car, he drove off. This allow J to get out without adjustment of his car!
Something good happened to my Mom for the 2nd time!
If you are struggling right now with Baptism or Confirmation, please know that you aren't the one 1. Be patient and persevere. You WILL get it!!!
I was in a long dress today. So long, I can sweep the floor with it. I was glad that I managed to get out of it by buying a dress from GAP.
Love the colors, so spring...
Outer layer is 95 or 97% cotton. The rest is elastane.
The lining is 80% polyester and 20% cotton.
Just because I like it.
Frankly speaking, if I'm going to pay for these, I wouldn't even consider picking them up. I mean 90 bucks for a pair of shorts?! Seriously... You've got to be kidding me! They do feel comfy once worn BUT! Not worth parting 90 bucks with. Okie... I'm just a scrooge sometimes. If it's less than 50 bucks, I'll take it and that's when I'm feeling rich and generous.
It's nice to have stuff paid for and you get to keep the goodies. >.<
Went to catch this movie today with J. Who's in it? Leonardo DiCaprio, Joel Edgerton, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Elizabeth Debicki etc.
Leonardo DiCaprio plays Jay Gatsby who loves Daisy.
Carey Mulligan plays Daisy Buchanan who is the wife of Joel Edgerton and the lover of Leonardo DiCaprio.
Tobey Maguire plays Nick Carraway who is the cousin of Daisy and Jay Gatsby's next-door neighbour.
Elizabeth Debicki plays Jordan Baker who is Daisy's long-time friend.
Joel Edgerton plays Tom Buchanan who is a millionaire and the husband of Daisy.
In summary, it's all glitz and glamour. I feel that the acting is good, the costume, music etc are good but the story line sucks. It's all about Gatsby and Daisy falling in love with each other but Daisy didn't marry Gatsby as he was poor. In the end, she was married to Tom who is a millionaire. Few years down the road, Gatsby tried to win Daisy back by getting her to leave Tom. It seems that she once love Tom and still love Gatsby. In the end, Gatsby died with Nick being the only one attending his funeral. Daisy didn't even send any flowers.
What did I learn from this movie? Some Women = Trouble. Yes, I'm a woman myself but most of the time, we are not decisive and most of the time, it's because of that, that misunderstandings occur.
