I love cooking!

Yes, you heard it right, Melissa found pleasure in cooking apart from Chess, Golf, Work and Coach.

Am cooking Fried Chicken (Alec loves this and begged me for the recipe!) and Garlic Prawn (Just maybe, my first try with prawns) later for dinner, then head down to AMK Hub for a movie. I love my Saturday! A Saturday when I only have to work half day at home!

Oh Gosh, sooo excited nyerr....

Update: Alec tak nak (refused) help me with the prawn peeling so opted to ikan batang instead... yes... stick fish...

Tao's Restaurant

Looking for a fancy restaurant to treat your girlfriend but minus the fancy price? Head down to the Tao's Restaurant at Paradiz Centre.

Went there for my Birthday and the food is soooo goood and very affordable! 4 thumbs up!

The camera died after a few pictures and am soo lazy to upload the pictures onto photobucket so, go there for yourself to experience the nice ambience, excellent service and delicious food.

Value for money and excellent service! Trust me you won't regret!

My bf is crazy!

Alec's company hasnt been doing very well and his paycheque has been badly affected, hence in order not to add salt to injury and disappoint myself, I bought myself a coach wristlet (For CNY) and a skinny (For my birthday) as consolations.

I even warned Alec not to splurge a cent for Christmas, Valentines and my birthday. Okay, maybe cause i didnt buy him any cause guy's presents are so freaking expensive and i cant buy him tie nor cufflink since he hardly uses those. But he is not a man of my word, He bought me a beautiful pink Citizen watch (he knows i adore pink very much) for Christmas...

(Image blurry thanks to my camera phone but this babe here is seriously pretty, almost all my colleague said so)

And now he bought me yet another COACH BAG!!! I have been eyeing this bag for a long time but since i have too many bags, I decided not to spoilt myself this year. so i just bought two, dua, liang keh coach accessories to last me till end of the year.

It is a long story how Alec tried to conceal this present from me since he knows his gf is a smart auditor and would probe and probe when she senses any irregularities or suspicious action cause he wanted this to be a surprise (i alw burst his bubble cause he is simply a lousy actor). So I shall keep that for another day.

Now wish me a Happy Birthday!

Don't jeles okay? I know i am one hell of a lucky girl....

Turning 24

In two more days I can legally categorized myself as being mid-20s. Okay, maybe 24 is still a year away from 25 but it is still within that range.

So, let me see what I have done for the past 24 years?

1. Graduated with a degree.
2. Still doing my ACCA (3 more papers baby!)
3. Bought a SLK (Small Little Kancil) with my OWN money, note the capital, means that your parents do not contribute a cent, on another note, my dad paid the deposit but that’s all :P.
4. Got employed by one of the Big Four (Funny that Big Four sound so ridiculously big and hard to enter when I was in college, but hey, most of my college-mates are in Big Four now).
5. Gone through four cycle of relationships, and only one devil that dare to dump me, Jarod, I hate you! You owe me lunch and dinner! I am coming back in March make sure your ass time is free by then!
6. Met accident once, okay cannot reveal much but basically noone was hurt but my dad’s wallet and his car.
7. Becoming more mature?
8. Improved sense of dressing, oh this I have to admit, thanks to my stylist Alec Soong.
9. Becoming more self conscious and 50% increase in self confident? Okay maybe I have been overly confident all this while but not a bad thing right?
10. Sudden love for sushi, I hate sushi before I met Alec, but somehow that a**h*** convinced me and drugged me with sushi. Now I need to get at least a monthly fix of sushi or Jap’s food.
11. I still hate durian and pork.
12. I am soon to be a Singapore PR.
13. And a lot of achievements along the way, you seriously don’t want to know, you will feel so inferior :P.

What I want to achieve in future?
1. To own a house (okay not a house per-se but a HDB flat in Singapore), I know the price it is ridiculously high that I can buy a bungalow in Msia but my rental now is not cheap either).
2. Stay in audit for as long as possible, pray that no trouble maker along the way. (Take out my shoe and 'Ta Siew Yan')
3. Finish up my ACCA and few years later maybe proceed to ICAEW, just Maybe.
4. Masters maybe? But am going to do a full time on this one.
5. Get married at 30. Sorry Alec, non-negotiable, unless you strike toto tomorrow.

I think that is all for now, OMG am soo hungry now….. Alec food plsssss……

Happy Valentines!

Finally Alec has gotten the hint!!!

He sent flowers to my office rather than home!

After being him for 2 freaking long years, he has finally done something right!

I lost count of number of times he sent me chocolates and flowers but being the attention seeker, i need ppl to aknowledge it! Call me show-off... whatever!

But hello... I've got lilies for V-day! Urself???

Have a wonderful Valentines' Day...
