What a weekend! It felt like I had no break and when I did last night, I couldn’t sleep, boo :( Perhaps, it was because I had just finished reading Fifty Shades of Grey and I was feeling rather lost with a gaping hole of sadness in me (so drama).
As usual, I went to church on Saturday, did worship and then chiong-ed from church to National Dental Centre. Why? Because I forgot to tell my parents that I needed the car so dear dad took it with him to his conference. Such a waste of time and money.. But more about the state of my poverty next time.
Went for the soft launch of Nook, a DIY pancake and all-day breakfast café at Lorong Kilat. It’s a love project by Dawn, Shawn and their partner so naturally I felt really happy for them. I’ve always wanted to open my own café but my realistic mind tells me that it’s way easier than it sounds, so kudos to them for taking the plunge!
Don’t miss the sign!
House of Pancakes
Little eggs walking around the wall
Our friends took awhile to arrive so I had tons of canapés and decided to keep myself occupied with… *giggle*
Btw, am I the only nutcase to think that he’s really hot? Like I read the book and can’t help but feel that E L James is one heck of a writer. She’s like the written/book version of Shonda Rhimes. Maybe I’m reading too much into the book, but to me, it depicts the inner desires of every girl, her insecurities blah blah.
Ok, digress much. I will blog about Fifty Shades once I’m done with the other two books. Mr Postman, fasterly pls! Oh ya, I think Tom Hardy makes a good Christian Grey. Lol! *FOCUS JOY FOCUS*
After Nook, I headed to my BFF&E&E&E&E&E&&E&E’s Muay Thai fight at SMU. Her fight was the main fight of the evening and I’ve seen Lena train since our Brisbane days when we were in Uni and seeing how far she’s come, I can’t help but feel so immensely proud of her! I still remember when she got back from Gladstone and she lifted up her singlet.. Holy macaroni! A friggin huge ostrich egg-like bruise!!
Muay Thai’s really tiring, I don’t know how Lena has the time to work and train at the same time. Five rounds of full-on cardio, WHILE getting punched left right centre. I couldn’t do it. I’d just take out my pistol and shoot my opponent. Lol.
Loving girlfriend giving her a massage pre-fight
This is called shadow boxing right?
Y U so skinny?
Amateur fight before Lena’s match
Amateur and padded but still soo scary!
By this point, I remember repeatedly telling myself that “my son will never take this as a sport! I will never allow it”
Men’s pro fight right before Lena’s
The guy from Lena’s gym (BXG) won!! Whee!!!
BFF having a moment
Ok, at this point, please note the difference in our behaviours. Of course, I have a super serious side to me, but isn’t this just hilarious!!!
Hoot hor yi si! It’s a fight, were you expecting anything less?
I cannot remember the last time I screamed so much. I was wearing such an elegant dress but all that shouting made me feel like an awful drag queen. Ah, who cares, for the BFF! If I can carry such a loud banner, I can scream all I want.
Lena and her Thai coach, also a Joy ;)
Into the ring, champ!

Saying a prayer
Kick, kick, kick!
Well, I really expected a draw but no, Lena’s opponent won. Not important, forever a champion in my eyes. She sucker-punched and thunder-kicked her opponent till she (the opponent) fell 2-3x so the results were a bit disappointing and unexpected..
Please make way, my champion’s in the house! xoxo, her publicist and BFF
Celebrated mum’s birthday at Canton-i last night. Her birthday’s on Tuesday but we wanted something that family could all gather together for so we did it earlier. Plus, she can have some romantic time with dad tomorrow!
My beautiful parents
J+J all grown up!
Family minus Nana in Sydney
Mum’s born in the year of the Pig and she adores them so imagine her reaction to these cute little piggy red bean buns
We were singing her birthday song super loudly and all she did was take photos of the pigs
Still singing, still snapping. See my popo’s face, lol!
Mind you, we are still singing at the top of our lungs when dad steps in to.. take photos too!! Whut!?
Finally she calms down and makes a wish. Clearly still very tickled by the pigs
Present time! Dad had already got her a Rolex earlier.. But of course I couldn’t afford a Prada on my own. So I shared this gift with Dad. Thank goodness for fathers.
Chanel from the boy
Happy with her cosmetics!
Really awkward photo haha but we bumped into Priscelia after dinner. Do you like her smile? It’s an Aloha smile ;)
Priscelia and Jaz
What a ton of photos! I hope you enjoyed this entry xx
