Bintan Lagoon!

Posted by: selsel on: July 3, 2009

It was such a rushed trip. We didn’t book the ferry tickets so it was a mad rush of phone calls to the ferry terminal checking if they even had tickets left. But fortunately they had plenty of tickets left for the 2pm! I guess everyone who’s going that day would have bought the early [...]

Yes, I’m back. For a week already. Photos from the trip, if you haven’t already seen it on Facebook! Have you been living in a cave? We’re so proud of our car, Holden Astra. Hard top convertible ok, don’t play play. I love to see it fold its top. So transformer-ish. Hee hee. Not much [...]

HK-Macau Sep 2008

Posted by: selsel on: October 4, 2008

I’ve got no more energy left to post up the pictures one by one. Combined, I think we have more than 1000 pictures from Karen, Ting and myself. So, please be content with these collaged photos. Haha. They are in chronological order. Starting from take-off from Singapore Changi Airport.  Tadah! That’s all folks!


Posted by: selsel on: February 2, 2008

Hee hee my favourite part of the entire trip! Woohoo! Day 4, we go to Disneyland! Yet another complicating journey of trains and transfers. At HongKong station. Think it was one of the interchanges. To the Sunny Bay line? Can’t remember already. Damn. We woke up late! So we had to grab breakfast at the Train Station. [...]

HK Part Three – Lunch and The Peak

Posted by: selsel on: January 30, 2008

Finally got my ass down to doing Part Three. Pardon the lapse of time between Part Two and this. It’s Sunday, and we were supposed to go to Macau to find the Three Monkeys in The Venetian Casino. Like, damn! I’m finally over 21 and can go into the casino legally. But no, my mum sms-ed me [...]

HK Part Two – Shenzhen

Posted by: selsel on: January 23, 2008

So we had to go to Shenzhen for Didi’s business purpose. Woke up bright and early (ok, quite bright but not very early) as it was a long journey to Luo Hu! Had breakfast at Da Jia Le, I think. Some omelette set and milk tea! Really weird why these people wake up so early on a [...]

HK Part One – Departure & Arrival.

Posted by: selsel on: January 22, 2008

0640hrs flight to Hongkong, I overslept. Was supposed to meet Didi at 0530hrs at T1. I woke up at 0530hrs. Uh-huh. She nearly freaked. Ordered cup noodles as breakfast, $5. I think I must have been too hungry to think. I reached the airport really late, so we couldn’t have breakfast. Yes, my fault. We [...]

Greetings from HK!

Posted by: selsel on: January 12, 2008

Helloooooooo!! Zou San!! Well, technically it’s morning already, 12.30am. It’s a little chilly here.. Especially after a shower man. My teeth were chattering after I stepped out of the toilet. The apartment’s really small. We can hardly move around now with all the luggages in and 3 of us in the room. Wahahhaha, I think [...]

Times Like These..

Posted by: selsel on: November 5, 2007

I wished I had super hero powers to forecast the future. Just 4 days after booking our tickets to the Land of the Fragrant Harbour.. Bludy Jetstar came up with this Happy 3rd Birthday promo thing. Well done, Jetstar!!! But you ain’t getting any birthday wishes from me. Nah-uh. I could’ve save $100. STEW-PID.


Posted by: selsel on: November 1, 2007

Finally. We have a seat each on Jetstar’s 3K691 departing Singapore on 10th January, 0640hrs (again!). Woohoo! Exciting! And someone’s agreed to put us up at his place for our trip. Uh-huh. I think it’s gonna be a squeeze. Well, there’s Plan B anyways. Wheeeeeee! Alright, got a HORRIBLE headache. Ja.

Bangkok II – Post Part 2

Posted by: selsel on: September 17, 2007

 Okay this came like 2 weeks late. I’ve been really busy (celebrating my birthday! ) and I’ve been really tired (from the celebrations). Okay okay, I’ve been really lazy as well. :X Anyhoos, better late than never. So here it is! Bangkok photos! Right from the day we depart from Budget Terminal. Got caught while [...]

Ai-sei! Guess who has the hottest blog on Lah.cc?

Posted by: selsel on: September 5, 2007

Me lah, of course, because everybody wants to read a shopaholic’s diary! Click to enlarge! There, screenshot to prove it. Ai-sei man! Anyhoos, I’m back from the Land of “Not-so-many-smiles-anymore” and I think every single pore on my body is filled with dust particles from all the tuk-tuks’ exhaust pipes. I have many photos but [...]

We’re staying at D’MA!

Posted by: selsel on: August 2, 2007

Image from Wotif.com – D’MA Pavilion Hotel Really. Confirm already. I think. I just heard we got upgraded to deluxe. Hmm. Deluxe room or Deluxe suite? Eh my dear kuku sister, if you’re reading this: In asiarooms.com, the rates for Deluxe SUITE (not room) is S$198/room. For triple-sharing. But if the asiarooms.com’s Deluxe SUITE and [...]

I don’t read Thai man!

Posted by: selsel on: July 28, 2007

So we’re now on the hunt for hotels / hostels / accomodation for the trip to Bangkok in August. And it’s driving us crazy because the hotel is either too far / too expensive / don’t know where or something. But it’s ok, we’ve sort of shortlisted a few. There’s Woraburi / Quality Suites Bangkok [...]

2d1n trip to Batam!

Posted by: selsel on: May 12, 2007

Finally got my ass down to posting the photos. Nothing fanciful la, and all are in their unedited gory glory. Got up bright and early on Sunday and headed down to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal. Some ulu pandan place I didn’t even know existed. Heh. There so high tech can, their boarding pass is like our [...]


Posted by: selsel on: May 7, 2007

Batam trip was fantastic! Bought Polos (Mum had the biggest haul, 3 Polos), snacks, did our nails and did our spa. The resort was great, view was fantastic, we had a room at the centre block so the view was just GREAT. I’d go back there again and again! The spa was a bit disappointing [...]

I’m meeting *The Phantom* on Sunday.

Posted by: selsel on: April 19, 2007

The much awaited, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera, directed by Harold Prince. Yes, even as we speak, Zhenting has already collected the tickets for the show on Sunday. Isn’t that great? And the best part is, it’s Category 1 Stall seats but we’re only paying $125 (U.P. $145). Check out the circled area. [...]

Look out for the pictures!!!! [EDITED - more to come]

Posted by: selsel on: January 11, 2007

But ironically, there are none. Not yet anyway. It’s been 6 days… … Since I updated. I realise I’m updating lesser and lesser. I only have an average of about 5 posts / month since October, methinks. … Since it happened. I’m still reeling in the effects. But I’m getting better, thanks largely to the [...]

Happy Birthday Singapore!!

Posted by: selsel on: August 18, 2006

I know I'm a bit late in saying that. But anyhows, HAPPY BIRTHDAY SINGAPORE!!! May we all prosper and become more civilised. I just realised countries are the only things that grow older (in terms of age) and become more modern and high tech as they grow older. Weird doncha think? Unlike humans, as we [...]


Posted by: selsel on: November 2, 2005

I cannot title it as Shanghai Shanghai because I didn’t spend all 8 days in Shanghai. So I can only title it as China! The trip was an eye-opener. The first 5 days were more of a history lesson than a holiday. Learnt more Chinese history than I ever did in the past years that [...]
