Recaps..

Ok..

Once again, I failed to update this blog regularly..

So.. a brief run-through of my daily or otherwise other happenings..

---------------------

VALENTINE'S DAY SURPRISE

Yesh.. I had a very pleasant surprise (and unexpected one too, having the feeling that both of us now can read each others' thoughts) from my bf for Valentine's Day.

We celebrate our Valentine's Day (14 Feb) at a kopi-tiam (in Bt Batok East) eating Hokkien Prawn Mee and Or-Jian cos' we din wanna squeeze with the couples in town (then of cos' we found that kopi-tiams are crowded too.. with families all eating their dinners). So.. that was what I thought..

BUT.. in actual fact, my thoughtful bf had actually made plans the next day. He told me that he had booked tickets for 2 for the movie 'Ghost Rider' cos' since it's a preview, so better to book tickets first. I waited for him outside UOB and he passed me a free sample for Face Shop, saying someone gave it to him.

Bf also brought along with him the remaining TANGs vouchers, so.. I decided to buy a lip gloss from Clinque after seeing the reviews on a magazine and a belt (to match my CNY clothings). Then we proceed to GV after having a quick dinner at BK.

While we happily went to Vivo for the movie, going up the escalator... he asked me to check which cinema hall.

Without much thoughts, I just took the 'tickets' from him. There.. I was really.. extra.. super.. very... extremely.. touched. He had actually made bookings for 2 for GOLD CLASS!!!!!
I was speechless.. and had almost wanted to start tearing. I've always wanted to watch a movie in Gold Class, but becos' it's not cheap (1 tix at $25), I never really thought he will actually bring me to see a movie in Gold Class. And maybe becos' he's tired of hearing me saying I wanna go watch at Gold Class.. Ha ha ha ha..

Anyway....
The tickets.. are under a Valentine's day special, costing at $44 each, it comes with a giant popcorn, giant nachos, with 2 soft drinks OR giant popcorn with 2 glasses of champagne. Knowing that he doesn't drink anything alcohol if he drives, we ordered 2 soft drinks. The service was of cos excellent.

AND... in addition, we have 2 COMPLIMENTARY SPA VOUCHERS! Bf was saying that it was worth the money since the spa packages costed more than $200. And he felt that girls should go for facials (or at least once a month) and he wondered how come he never see me going for one.. EXPENSIVE MAH..

anyway.. GOLD CLASS.. SUCH A COMFY PLACE TO WATCH MOVIES..
Reclining chair.. so comfortable that you can sleep in it (i think someone slept during the movie).. FLUFFY BLANKETS!! YES.. I FELT LIKE BRINGING IT HOME!!!

2 hours movie.. IT'S THE MOST MEMORABLE ONE I HAD..

Thank you dear.. and sorry for making you spent so much money also. But I really enjoyed that night..

FACIAL..

The complimentary spa.. I went for it at Bonafides..
Had my 1st facial after 10 over years of not going for one.. it was GOOD.. I 'upgraded' to a better facial session anyway..
And signed up for a special package given to me by the spa manager..

Will be going for my next appointment in March with my buddy to let her use the voucher (well.. maybe as a birthday present) :P

I definately need to do something about the damned acne scars which just doesn't wanna go away.. Hopefully.. this facial works.

ADMIRALTY WEST PRISON..

I went to PRISON again.. for a meaningful event for the pre-release inmates..
Everytime I particupated in such an event, it made me feel like joining the special volunteer groups to help these people. They are actually nice fellas who made a stupid mistake that ruin their whole lives. One of the ex-offenders who participated in last March's Job Fair @ AWP (organised by us) actually cried when interviewed. He said that without the help from CARE Network, SCORE and NWCDC, he wouldn't have this chance to start anew. From a technician of a salary of $1000+, in less than a year his salary was increased to around $1200.

I was really touched when I heard him saying that.

This is something about my job which I love..

The number of lives that we have helped to change in our course of work.. can never be felt in other kinds of jobs..
