Navin has been successful in persuading me to pick up rollerblading again – though I’m not very good at it! I feel so clumsy & silly on the blades, but I do have to admit the exhilaration factor once your up and running makes it worth the effort!
Last weekend we returned to East Coast. Whilst we bladed, Terence jogged (his practicing for the 2 Singapore marathons coming up – which Melf & Tini are also participating in). After our 1 hr workout we headed to good ol’ Siglap 🙂  We had Pho (beef noodles), spring rolls & rice paper rolls at ‘Le Viet’ (903, East Coast Rd). The food was pretty good. For dessert we walked over to Coffee Club & had chocolate mudpie.
Tomorrow I’m looking forward to Body Combat (BC) with Ands, it’ll be our 2nd consecutive attempt (I’m also very unco at this!). During the 1 hr workout there’s lots of martial art moves – kicking, punching & yelling. It’s a great workout, lots of sweat & a great way to combat a stressful work week!

My cousin Lyndsey (from KL) & uni pal Nelly (from Mauritus) dropped by Singapore recently, both stayed with us in Chinatown. Although they visited seperately, they both had the same mission – SHOPPING 🙂

Lyns successfully scoured the whole of Orchard & beyond (Suntec & Bugis) and bought a whole new work wardrobe – with plenty of skirts, tops & a few dresses. I truly salute her for her great finds!

Nelly visits Singapore every 3 yrs or so for some mega shopping – buying up clothes, Perlini’s Silver to electronic goods. Had a great time with Nelly, browsing Erskine Rd & Club St for designer homewares/gifts & design books and of course pigging out at Sushi Tei. Thanks to Mil’s recommendation, we tried Beef Sushi – divine divine DIVINE!


Nelly being a fellow traveller recommended this cool website – which highlights (in red) the countries you have visited. Apparently I’ve only conquered 5% of the world, only another 95% more to go – sheesh!

Serena also recommended this cool travel blog. She met Trinidad in New York. Man he’s so so so so inspiring, travelling the world twice over! Do check out his awesome slideshows.

Also, do check out virtual tourist – (it has travel checklists & other useful tips) and this book 1000 Places to See Before You Die

P.s counting down to Shanghai in September! Yipeeee!
