First Chicken!

So today I pan-fried the chicken thighs I bought from NTUC yesterday after Ballet.Here they are,served as lunch this afternoon:

Chicken thigh marinated in salt and lemon juice,then pan-fried alongside mushrooms.Carbonara pasta and cherry tomatoes.

Not bad for my first cooking session,I dare say.I went with my instincts and guessed the amount of salt and lemon juice I had to put and the taste turned out quite good.
Feeling proud of myself!

You know, all that really matters is that the people you love are happy and healthy. Everything else is just sprinkles on the sundae

Breakfast this morning:

White coffee, garlic bread and cherry tomatoes with apple slices


Noodles with luncheon meat,egg,quail eggs,mushrooms

May do some baking either tonight or tomorrow.I really need to get baking paper before anything else!

Am I Ready For UT3?

Hope everyone is well.I believe today is Day 9 of Chinese New Year.I have not been able to really study for my Understanding Test 3(UT3) until recently,which,I must give credit to my amazing boyf for pushing me to revise. (:


Just this morning,I checked my school website and the UT2 results were out.Here goes: * Drum roll*
- Anatomy & Physiology(A&P) : C+ to B+
- Microbiology : C to B+
- Molecular & Cell Biology (MCB) : D to D+

Grades for Chemistry and Biochemistry are not out yet.I shall post them once they're out. So I have been feeling quite positive about the upcoming UT3,but I'm not sure if I'm ready.Also,if I'm getting grades like these and improving without much intense studying,would I get a worse grade if I studied more for UT3?I don't know if that's possible,but it seems illogical,doesn't it?I'm just worried my efforts would backfire me.Nonetheless,I am still revising and am understanding more than I ever did when I was still studying in Sem2.
During this CNY period,I have also not been able to go for much Ballet practices.Holidays claimed by the school took my Monday and Tuesday lessons last week,Thursday was Valentine's Day(and my teacher already expected me not to show up so that's okay),Sunday was compulsory family visiting so I skipped the class at Marine Parade.Then yesterday I wanted to go but I had such a bad stomach upset,I slept till 6pm the time class starts) and the pain was there till this morning,although not as painful.I did some workout yesterday so I feel stronger for Ballet class today.But my legs are aching hahahh. :D
On the side note,my schedule and bb's schedule makes us unable to meet as frequent as before.But I know this is temporary,and NS takes up a short time in our lives.After this,everything will be much better and he won't feel so tired too.I need to remind myself that this is temporary,to keep the faith and build the trust♥
Happy 4th month anniversary bb ♥
Time to get some more revision done.Have a great day ahead!

Day 3 of CNY

So yesterday,I visited my mum's friend like we do every year.Let's call her M.She is a really really cute and short lady who has a uniquely rough but nice voice and she cooks fabulous curry and bee hoon.No joke.Aunty M's husband has the rough voice too,but he's towards the drinking lover and so I tried Bacardi with coke and some lemon slices.It was not bad.
Dinner was served around 8+ when the dining area was clear of guests,mostly Aunty M's extended family.The adults chatted for a bit,and I sat there listening and making small talk once in awhile.Afterwards it was home sweet home.
Today,I was to my friend's house to celebrate her belated birthday,after which I met bb at the station to go to my family's reunion dinner.I think it went well because my manman is always so good at socializing ;)
I just feel a little annoyed at my parents,especially my dad because he is just really strict on so many things that I want to do with bb.I know it takes time,but the question is,'how long does it take?'
Anyway,on a happy note,Valentine's Day is in 2 days and I can't wait.It's time 2013 gives me some good memories to keep.2013 started good,not bad,but could be better.
But ever since I knew him,even as a friend,he made things so much easier.Life,my thoughts,emotions.He has such a positive outlook on everything,and I do try and see things positively but not always.He painted my life with colours,gave meaning to everything and suddenly it all made sense.It may sound so cliche or however one may call it but he and I,this couple,we're not like the others.No one would come close to know what I mean,unless they can feel what I feel.
And what do I feel?I feel more alive than ever,I'm not just living♥Iloveyou

Happy Chinese New Year!

Hey everyone,happy CNY!CNY this year is on the 10th of February.May everyone get lots of red packets this year! :D
Tuesday is a busy day for me because I'll be at a friend's in the afternoon to celebrate her birthday,then off for a reunion dinner.Can not wait.
On the side note,I visited my two aunts from my maternal and paternal side,and again tomorrow and also meeting bb.I miss him,I really do.
At first,I thought it was difficult having to go through book-in-book-out period.But it seems like this is the toughest.With day and night shifts,it messes up the whole body's sleeping routine and he's tired and sleeping if he isn't working or meeting up.I wish I could do something to help him,but I don't know what I can do.So it's true,what they say.It's not easy dating a NS guy,and I admit to that,but it'll work.It's a blessing in disguise because it helps me to be more patient, understanding and even-tempered.And I've always felt that way;I've always felt that it was important to be with someone who makes you want to improve to be a better person.
Yesterday,after his day shift,he called me while I was out with a friend of mine because he wanted to meet me for late dinner.I had not have my dinner then,so I agreed.Although the plan was cancelled the last minute because there was a lot of food at his house,it felt nice to know that he was making an effort to meet me ♥ Things are slow now,but slow is good because we have time on our hands and step by step,we will get there.
