Daralis
I have had the above blog address since i was 18. So i've been blogging for 5 years. From those angsty (not so rebellious) teenage years to this young working adult.  We kept telling each other that we don't wish to grow old but the truth is most of us are raring to move forward, no matter in terms of getting that promotion, buying a new house, having kids etc. Even that holiday in December makes you wish time would pass faster.

There's so much in life to look forward to, especially when you have so many wonderful people to share it with. That's the optimistic me speaking, by the way. I gotta admit that this should be the best part of my life now that i have considerable financial freedom and almost zero burden. When you are young you can't help but have this feeling that the world is your oyster and you can be whatever you want to be.

I've decided to move on to another blog. It's not a turning point of my life (although maybe in my own little digital world), i just thought that it would be a nice fresh start with a cleaner template. I'd also like to put up some of my handicrafts online if time permits.

I've moved all of my travel posts there to start off cos i thought it'll make it look more happening. It does!!

Isn't daralis such a nice name? It means beloved, by the way.

Nagoya castle
The last time i've been to Nagoya was November 08 and it was the first ever flight in my career. Wow. We decided to try the unagi that's so famous here.

Highly recommended by my Japanese colleague.

OMG look at the eel grilled to perfection. It is sweet thanks to the BBQ sauce yet does not lose its fresh eel flavour.

We ordered 2 different 'styles' to try. The truth is we can't bear to buy 2 expensive meals so we bought 1 less expensive one to share.

This is supposedly the trademark of the restaurant but the most expensive unagi meal i've ever tasted.... cost me almost 40SGD.

There's a special way of consuming it. First you split the rice into 4 parts. Scoop 1 part into a bowl and eat it as it is. Next, scoop the 2nd part and add the seasoning (wasabi, seaweed and chives). Add in their broth with the 3rd part. Lastly eat it your favourite way with the 4th serving!

Hurhur. We simply added all the seasonings in. Yummy! No broth cos it made it too wet.


A drawing of my meal. How cute!

Winter is ending and flowers are popping out along the streets.

We visited the Nagoya Castle.


First signs of Sakura!




The castle.

See the plane taking off. How poetic.




I never get sick of Japanese bakeries and confectioneries.

Poor prawns. Dead and stuck on a wrapper for decorative purpose!








So we basically wondered about in parks and shopping malls and rested ourselves with teas and cakes. SY says we'll make good tai tais and this picture is a good indication.

Finally, i can't rave enough about Japanese bread. In fact Taiwan has the same fluffy soft bread as well as China. I don't see why Singapore bread can't be the same. WHY!!!!!

I'm having an ultimately stressful time planning my trip to japan. Don't tell me to relax and take it easy cos I can't. See I'm just this sort of uptight fussy bitch when it comes to this sort of thing. The schedule is so tight that the itinerary gets messed up as long as I miss one train.

By the way have you seen the train system?? It's a bloody maze and some maps don't print all the lines cos many of them are run privately so many a times u will read 'take the sain line to kinosaki station' and you stare at the map searching your eyeballs out among the ridiculous web of subway lines.

And then you sort of fall into the web and get tangled and the spider comes to gobble you up.

OR, you could try to find another map of the exact same location but looks completely different.

I dunno if it's this Virgo thing that if I plan something it has to be detailed and go exactly and perfectly as intended. Any stumbles stresses me up. At the same time the Leo in me likes to take control and be in control of the situation. And of the people too if possible.

But in the first place I'm not a planning enthuse. I'd like to be referred to for the final decision yet I'm indecisive.

I'm just a confused character!

wanna fly?
Many of my friends have been asking me questions about flying and tips for the upcoming SIA cabin crew interview. And I'm always very eager to share cos it's their first step out to achieving what they want and let's admit it, it takes damn a lot of courage to tell others you aspire to be THE Singapore girl risking unwelcome mockery including the fact that you might not make it. Plus, you will be judged largely by the way you look stand walk talk behave even the smoothness of your skin.

Oh sorry you should also be kinda smart. We are not, like, bimbos, like, you know, toduhlay?

I'm telling you if I go for the interview now I might not make it.

Ok good luck!! Faster join! I could use more friends in here.
