I have spent a total of $6 dancing on Para Para machines over these two weeks, and that means six dance sessions. But, one downside to dancing Para Para is that I can't stop thinking and singing to the catchy beats in my mind. Maybe I just shouldn't dance Para Para after dinner at night. I had a hard time trying to fall asleep last night.
Oh dear, I think I am hooked on Para Para dancing. Haha.. At least for this week.
(Who doesn't know that my fads go as quickly as they come? Haha.. my mother knows best.)

We finally found The Settlers Cafe a stone's throw away from Clarke Quay MRT station. We had actually took a long detour all the way from Chinatown Point to China Square, Far East Square, OCBC Building ( that is near Raffles Place MRT station!), South Canal Road then to North Canal Road. In short, I had led everyone walking in the wrong direction. Heez... (Sorry guys, I won't do it again :)
However, our long journey by foot to find The Settlers Cafe was not entirely wasted. We discovered a few scenic places which we didn't even know of their existence before. Here's one photo to prove. Haha..
The Settlers Cafe did not fall below our expectations. Though we had many board games to choose from, we only played Nigara River and Singapore Uniquely Monopoly due to time constraint. (The student package is only available from 2pm to 6pm.)
From this outing, I realised that I had a lost childhood. I had never really played or understood the game of Monopoly with anybody until then. I didn't know that playing board games with friends can be such a fun thing despite my (mature) age now. Hope to play more board games with you people soon!

Not forgetting to mention, I thank my wonderful CG 18/03 for preparing a nice little farewell cake for me last Saturday night at Parkway. Sorry people that I left early that night. I promise that will definitely join you people again soon when I return for my holiday ok? I'm glad that most of you are doing well and coping well with school work and army. :)
Shall type more the next time!

The Singapore Heart Foundation launches its first Go Red For Women campaign this month to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease among women. And, to mark this, the Hearts Pendant is on sale at Citigems at only $88. I only came to know about this promotion after I had bought The Singapore Women's Weekly a few days ago. The promotion starts today and I had to cut out a coupon in the magazine in order for me to get my pendant at $88. I bought it at Citigems in Tampines Mall this afternoon. The pendant is so beautiful. The two linked hearts also makes it a romantic gift for a boyfriend to give to his girlfriend. Haha.. I finally have a diamond jewellery to add to my collection! Heez...

5- The best I have tried so far in Singapore!
4- Delicious! I want another serving!
3- Okay… Tastes just like the hawker centre next door.
2- Below average. A disincentive for me to return to Singapore.
1- Yucks! We should have opened our eyes before ordering.
It was such a fun trip. It was also my first time going around Singapore eating like this. All thanks to Yuan who drove us around in his car today. Hope we will have more of such trips together again!
