9 Feb 2015 – Negative Predictions In Every Way & All The Way 🙁
Wed: not liking what is in the 2015 Chinese Zodiac for the sign of the Ox. Bad enough that the Chinese consider that the goat and sheep is the same animal and if it proves to be correct I am in for a bad bad year – as if it was not rough enough for the year of the Horse! Jada time will show but no harm to tie loose ends 🙂
Thu: a visit to the local Polyclinics and was not that bad. There at 0800hrs and out by 1000hrs. Thought that the billing was incorrect but to my surprise that was not the case – consultation + 1 month supply of 3 different medications S$12.40.
Visited and lunched with Ivy, brought them the family’s favourite ‘paus’. Watched Wild****Driven to the edge by the loss of her beloved mother, the dissolution of her marriage and a headlong dive into self-destructive behaviour, Cheryl makes a decision to halt her downward spiral and put her life back together again. With no outdoors experience, a heavy backpack and little else to go on but her own will, Cheryl sets out alone to hike the PCT – one of USA longest and toughest through-trails.
Inspired to hike sections of the AT again. 10yrs ago thru-hiked the AT/USA (3,500k), MacLehose/HKG (2012/100k), C2C/UK (2013/309k). Only section hikes for now…
Fri: unusual cloud formations on the way to Chinese class. It will be another 3weeks before the next class. Colourful Chinatown with quite a crowd. Bought tangerines from China are sweet and good for the CNY. Bought 2 packages at S$4pp, not sure if I will dare venture into Chinatown the next few weeks. Nowadays one gets such sweet strawberries from Korea and now these tangerines from China. Should not eat too much of these ‘engineered food’ not knowing what has been added…
Fun to venture in my own neighbourhood/East Coast Rd to check out the area and discover eateries. Mexican restaurant Margarita’s***with Ting, CH & Henry for a pre–CNY dinner. There is something lacking in the salsa but just unable to pin point what it is?? Tkx for good company and food.
Quite a trendy area with many eateries which will be on my list. Like the way how The Peranakan Hotel conceals their AC compressors outside the building and their colourful alfresco sitting area. All these just 5mins walk from my place where we returned for cheese and wine.
Sat: shopped and dined at Liang Ct. Appreciations to Clem for Circle Mirror***with Pangdemonium performance of a play by Annie Baker. Centered on drama classes at a community centre in Vermont/USA about five wannabe actors.
Has been an Adrian Pang fan since the movie Forever Fever****It has been a while since the last DBS Arts Centre performance.
Changing colours at OC – like SIN never-ending constructions and re-constructions! The former Dubliner Irish pub is now barricaded but the bus-stop in front of it is still there. Whatever it is going to be, just hope that the old building stays as it is the only one of the old colonial charm on this road…
Sun: tkx for visit Carmel. A week ahead with cleaning which desperately needs it, especially the windows and the curtains. Spring cleaning before the CNY can hopefully reverse the non-favourable predictions for 2015… 🙂 🙂
