Barista Workshop - 25 June

So the 3 of us decided to attend the barista course that MsH has always wanted to go

 Started with some theory about coffee and the only thing i could remember was that there are 2 commercially grown coffee namely the A_rabica and R_obusta
(okay fine i cheated I looked at my notes :p)

So the teacher said that the more atas coffee uses the A_rabica and the Kopitiam coffee uses R_obusta

But the thing that caught my attention was, A_rabica coffee contains half the caffeine compared to R_obusta and it has the same amount of caffeine as CocaCola!

So how come I cannot sleep after drinking coffee but I can sleep after drinking coke and i blame coffee for causing me to lose my sleep? :p

So... is it psychological? or that i drank R_obusta coffee?

so aniwae... im not really a coffee person becos i always thot it will cause me to lose my sleep at nite and that most coffee are generally bitter.

 So i only drink va_nilla la_tte from the St_ar_Bu_cks cos it's not bitter

but i was amazed to drink non-bitter coffee that I made myself in this course!
They say it's the way you make it and the bean and machine etc.
I dunnoe all that i just know that i tasted one of the nicest coffee i've ever tasted in my life!

haha exaggeration you say? perhaps a little :p
i think it was the roasted almond flavoured latte that i tried and it was so good!
i must remember to go back and drink it again :)

So after the theory lesson, we went to make our own latte and cappuccino. It was fun!
but the most fun was making the latte art!

we were supposed to make a heart shape latte like the one above!
but we ended up with this.....

.......elongated heart (right)

but no worries! damage control by the teacher and it became....

a freaking leaff!!!! how cooool is thaaaat!!! hahaha
i am impressed... veeeeerry impressed!

show you some other damage control art!

Medussa-octopus-star-like thing!

and a phoenix!!

 it was fuuuuuun! even though some of them had an overdose of coffee cos we could practise as many times as we want i.e. waste as many coffee as we want
which, some of them couldnt live with and started drinking all the coffee that we made... until, their hearts started palpatating cos of too much caffeine!


well i didnt have that much guilt about wasting some of the coffee cos I already paid for them :p and im determined to make my heart on my latte!!

aaaaand i finaaaaaally succeeded!!!! :D :D
nice hor?

im so proud of my tiny-little-heart-on-my-latte :)

adventure w blackie

my first traffic violation gives me nightmares even 1 month after it happened!

Just had a scary dream last nite about me losing the rest of my 12 points. I dreamt that i was falling asleep on the wheel and that i couldnt control my feet to hit the brake and beat 2 traffic lights at one shot! And in this dream.... i got caught by the camera again.

I guess im still pretty disturbed by the fact that i could be one of those people who beat traffic lights (it was made worse with all the recent accidents involving speeding cars beating the traffic lights. but but i wasnt speeding i swear!). I blamed it on my eyes cos i couldnt see the lights well at nite and that i have a slow reaction to situations like that.

so i've learnt my lesson and i swear to be extra careful whenever im on the road :)

btw, i think i have not officially introduced by new friend,
黑仔 aka blackie :D

it was kind of a love at first sight.
i saw him at the 2nd hand car website and i didnt think much about him until i laid my eyes on him.
he has this, bad boy (or ah-beng) look about him that i like. with the body kit and the black and red leather seat and the metallic accelerator/brake pads. hmm.. i likeeeee :p

he was a tad unwell at the beginning with the punctured tyres and the cracked rim. Even though he has an unmatched set of rims now, i still think 黑仔 is preeetty cooool :) :)

so i thought... he could be my lucky starrr!!

well... not yet anyway.

wh bdae celebration!

happy belated birthday wh! :D

went to visit yt & ql's new house at p-ungg-ol too! very nice very nice...and very quiet! haha :p

haha i think i have a few friends who are waiting for their flats in that area too!
Guess it'll be pretty cool having all the young couples staying at the same area, and your friends and colleagues just a stone throw away. It'll be like back in uni days staying at a hostel where all your friends are nearby.

And i heard that relationship with neighbours is no longer the same as it used to be! Apparently people now create facebook groups for residents staying in the same flat to chit chat and make friends. And of course to remind their neighbours to keep their volumes down and stop doing renovation at odd hours. I thought it's reaaally interesting, but it's definitely not something i'd want to be a part of. Like no privacy leyy :p

#07-375 says: Hey #08-375, stop fighting and lower your volume leyy! I cannot sleep ley!
#08-375 says: Sorry sorry! No choice ley my wife fight with me.  

I'd rather be like my neighbourhood now, where i dunnoe anybody staying around me and i dont even know who are my same floor neighbours even though i've been staying at my house for more than 15 years!

Antisocial i likeeeeeeee :p

(1:57am: Singkong the only reason im blogging at this ridiculous hour is to prove that i dun have imaginary friends that i hang out with on friday :p)

In-decisive fel

As far as i can remember, i have always hated making decisions.
I always knew im more of a follower than a leader. Partly cos i cant make up my mind most of the time, and i'm easily persuaded by what others tell me. So, like that how be leader? :p

Im not really sure why I dun like to make decisions. In a group setting, if I were to make decisions, i guess i'm afraid that my friends would be compelled to proceed with things that they dun really wish to. In a way, i dont want my decision to be imposing to others. And the fact that i have no opinions about things and I dont mind going with any of the options just made me more convinced that I probably shouldnt be making the decisions.

Tonight, i need to make a decision about where I want to further my studies. And I am stuck! Because there is no one option which has everything i want! I always need to compromise something for another! why??? :p haha... i sound like a freaking spoilt brat over such a trivial matter for some people.

Da ge says that I should do what my heart says and just go with it because this decision will not affect others. It's all about me! He also says that having a choice is a luxury and I should be happy that I am able to decide things for myself!

Haha some wise words from da ge which i totally agree!

but... i still dont know what to do! :p

found something my friend made for me... my very own bumper sticker! :)

S-ingapore A-rts F-estival 2012

okay ... so i admit i dont have that many events to blog about anymore haha that's because i finaaally discovered, that.... i am an antisocial girl a.k.a. 宅女!

i never thought i will call myself antisocial cos i thot i just need a longer time to warm up to people. But, i think the fact that i'd rather be cooped up in my room watching my running man and other shows is a very good clue. Plus the fact that im not known to initiate meet-ups with my friends, i'd rather flee the scene when i see familiar faces instead of saying hi and also that i'm very particular about my personal space and privacy, just put the pieces together.  

A fellow AntiSocial Colleague (ASC) of mine confirmed that i'm antisocial. Haha! I was pretty upset over some issues that I felt was compromising my personal space. And no one seems to understand me the way he did.
fel: "Omg, how did you know how I felt!"
Mr ASC: "that's cos you are antisocial. Like me."
fel: " but i'm not antisocial!"
Mr ASC: "yes you are."
fel: "ar crap. yea i guess i am"

So what has me being an antisocial got to do with the Arts Festival?? Nothing really :p maybe just to highlight the point that I am glad I have happening friends that I can tag along with to bring some colours to my life! So thaaaaanx Mr Singkong!!! hahaha

Singkong told me that he wanted to go to the es-pla-nade park to catch some...arty indian dance and listen to kids telling ghost stories.
Figured it could make me alittle bit more arty, so i tagged along together with 3 other friends!
(okay, this photo is gonna remind me of ghostbuster everytime i see it!)
so that's the indian arty dance at the back
something about a dance being about searching for true love.
so.. what is true love?
haha i used to have long discussions about this with a bunch of my friends. And i thot the most apt phrase that i chanced upon was
"True love is when you gave someone the power to hurt you, but trusting him not to"
awwww.... :p ok this is topic for another day!
moving on! i thot the view was pretty breathtaking and thot i shall be a tourist for awhile

really quite an amazing view.....
(which i didnt have time to enjoy cos singkong is rushing to listen to kids tell ghost stories! haha)
So this is our guide for the kids ghost story telling session...
....the guide who made us walk long distances and who shared our running-man craze!
haha that boy is pretty creepy i must say. He is one of the boys telling us ghost stories!
singkong also scared.
The other kids who told us ghost stories.
Must really applaud them for their courage and memory power in telling a bunch of strangers ghost stories at nite man. Some of them were obviously very nervous, but thot it was a pretty cool thing that they volunteered themselves to do :)
(in the name of art!)

Aaaand I shall end my post with my favourite pic of the night! :)
