A Trip to Garden By The Bay

Found myself at Garden by the Bay on the last day of January. 

Although I had been to Garden by the Bay before for 2 times, but I had never stop to really take a good look at the beauty of this magical place. Today is my third visit to GBTB, I slowed down my pace and began to appreciate the scenery of the magnificent garden.

I was awed by the beauty of the greenery surrounding. Everything around here just looked so beautiful. Caught sight of the amazing Supertrees. These uniquely designed trees have large canopies that provide shade in the day and come alive with an exhilarating display of light and sound at night.

Taking a stroll at the broadwalk after our lunch and breathing in the fresh air.

My destination - Flower Dome. 
So near yet so far.

Immersing ourselves in the beauty of this garden, it is such a picturesque landscape.

Settling down by the bench for a rest.

Serenade the beautiful lakes.
Little did I know, the lakes are a rich source of aquatic life from fish to plants. 

Came under the Supertrees.


Relaxing and enjoying the sea breeze when we were sitting along the promenade. We get to admire the Marina Bay financial district skyline from along its 2km waterfront promenade.

I love life like that, so carefree and peaceful, embraced by the breeze, surrounding and the cloudy blue sky. At that moment, I forgot all my troubles and worries. The sea breeze has blew all of them away :P


Totally felt rejuvenated.

I wish for an staycation at Marina Bay Sands.
Anyone wants to sponsor or bring me there?

All right, it's time to bid goodbye to Garden By The Bay and go back to reality, back to the hectic urban life.
Looking forward to the next outing trip.

Good bye!

Chinese New Year is approaching in just another week.

Chinese New Year is a major occasions in Chinese Culture. It is also the time where family and relatives come together for a gathering and to have reunion dinner together. Every year, what I look forward to is to have a good meal together with my family.

In 2013, let's usher the Year of the Snake @ PARKROYAL on Beach Road.

Located within Singapore’s central business district, PARKROYAL Beach Road offers a wide choice of culinary delights.

A new year brings hope, joy and delectable prosperity offerings! 

Why not bring your family down to Plaza Brasserie for the Prosperity Buffet Feast to satisfy all cravings.

Diner can look forward to an elegance table setting and majestic interiors at Plaza Brasserie.

Let's line up to get into our dinner buffets featuring a variety of local, continental and Asian cuisine. Take your pick from Soft-Shell Crab, Sashimi Selection, Laksa, Tempura, Roti Prata and Cantonese Roast Meats and Stir-fried Vegetables.

At Chef’s live station, guests can look forward to the freshly steamed Red Garoupa Fish in Superior Stock available for dinner.

Yusheng is a must have in Chinese New Year.

To usher in the Year of the Snake, we will be tossing to Chef Jackson’s new creation of the Fruity Yu Sheng consisting of fresh tropical fruits like Mandarin Oranges, Peaches, Rose Apples, Rock Melon, Dried Persimmons, Green Mango and Papaya. 

This new creation symbolises an abundance of wealth and a well-rounded life enhanced with Chef’s Special Fruit Flavoured Sauce. 

Don't worry if you are not used to the new creation, traditional Yu Sheng will also be available.

The waitress went through the rituals before the toss. So whenever she poured an ingredient in, she would mutter an auspicious saying. For example, when the deep-fried golden crisps were being poured, the waitress would say "Pian di huang jin".

After every auspicious saying, we had to say "收到" to symbolize that we have acknowledge the good blessing.

And lou-hei began. 
Huat ar!

Our end product.

Peng Chai is another auspicious dish savoured during Chinese New Year. It symbolizes prosperity and abundance. 

Peng Chai is served with delicious ingredients such as Fish Maw, Prawns, Sea Cucumber, Sliced Abalone, Roast Duck, Chicken, Pork Cabbage and Black Moss. 

A very delicious dish that is full of treasures in it.
The soup is rich and flavourful, indulge myself in the fresh seafood.

Savour the freshly steamed Red Garoupa Fish in Superior Stock served at the Prosperity Buffet.
The freshness of the steamed fish is the reason why everybody love this dish. The gravy sauce make it just perfect.

It is yet another delectable dish that you cannot missed. 

Nian Gao means "higher year" in English. It symbolizes raising oneself taller in each coming year.

Aaron Yan [The Moment] Music Party @ NEVERLAND II

Oh Yes, I was excited for my first music party in 2013.

Guess who I'm going to meet???
?
?

It's Aaron Yan 炎亚纶, one of my favourite member in Taiwanese boyband Fahrenheit.

Aaron Yan is here in Singapore to meet his fans again and to promote his first solo album The Moment 紀念日, released in October 2012. That Saturday, I went for his music showcase - [The Moment] Music Party @ Neverland II at St James Power Station.

Invited Jasmine along with me.
We were there half an hour before the stated time and the queue was already tremendously long.
Hopefully we would be able to get a good standing spot.

We waited for nearly one and the half hour before the door opened.

Finally we were in.

Some background of Aaron Yan:

Aaron Yan is a Taiwanese Mandarin pop singer and actor. He is also the youngest member of Taiwanese Mandopop boy band Fahrenheit. He was born on 20 November 1985, which means he is 28 years old this year. 

Wei Bin 伟彬 from Y.E.S. 93.3FM was the host of the night.
She was good at bringing the atmosphere high: "Do you girls want to meet 炎亚纶? Let's shout his name together, okay? 炎亚纶! 炎亚纶! 炎亚纶!.........."

Say hello to Aaron Yan.
He is so charming and dashing which melted all the girls' heart.

An upclose picture of Aaron.
Lucky I still managed to find a good spot.


I took a video of him singing the first song - 可能你还爱我.

可能 你还爱我 
分手那天 才没那么洒脱 
是在提醒我 你不是真离开我 
可能 你还爱我 
分开之后 还能够常连络 
却不曾提过 谁在你怀中 
可能 还爱我

This song is actually composed by Aaron himself which was based on his past relationship.
From boyband to solo artiste, Aaron Yan had grown up a lot.

He earned the title of "emotional prince" image. He is full of emotions.

He is so caring towards his fans. Knowing that we waited outside for hours, he asked if we are okay and do we have sufficient water. He also asked fans to lower the fans board so that everyone can see him. He is such a nice guy.

Another song that he composed is 比寂寞更寂寞.
This song is also about his past relationship where ex-girlfriend broke up with him because of his busy work schedule as an artiste.

Being an artiste isn't easy, jiayou!

The members of Fahrenheit are now focusing on their individual activities without disbanding. While the others are focusing on acting, movie and hosting, Aaron Yan put his focus on his music career.

His third song - 原來.


Last song  and also the hit song - 紀念日.
I love this song very much, it's nice and catchy.


Shuai qi de Yan Ya Lun.

我要永远记得 那一天 我勇敢了 
在这同样地点 拥抱你的那一刻 
突然觉得很感激 我能活着 

我要永远记得 那一天 你微笑了 
眼中闪着泪水 说你不怕孤独了 
哭着对我说 不停对我说 
你多么 爱我

Awww, we had come to the end of the music party.
Hope to see him again in Singapore soon.

Jasmine and I had a good one hour with Aaron Yan. 
So hungry by then, let's proceed to Vivo City for our late dinner.

Good bye.
