Prawning event at Bugis+

Hello readers! I was at Bugis+ last saturday due to work, and it was my first time trying out prawning!
even managed to take selfies with my boyfriend,

one of my favourite photo got to be this!
was asking bf to take a quick selfie as we was waiting at the traffic light,

it was quite cosy because it was indoor and airconditioned!

outside the prawning area, they have this small pond, they called it longkang fishing whereby kids can catch fishes in the small tank they will provide for them to take home!
the kids enjoy catching the fishes at this small pond.

this was their registration counter,
by the way if you are wondering its exact location, it is located at bugis+ level 7! the rootfop.
same level as the joyden hall
it has been quite long since i went there, apparently they only started operating few months at this outlet,
they have the other outlet at east coast park.
not exactly cheap for the rate you are paying, but because i am sort of helping out at this event, i don't have to pay a single cent!

it only got crowded in the afternoon, we booked the entire area but there was some walk in from the public, maybe it would be a better choice to put a signage at the front of the entrance to deter public from coming inside the venue.

the lobster was climbing out!
the staff was very friendly and even teach me how to hold the lobster to pose for a photo!

if you are still a student or in NS, there is a special rate for you!
as we was not busy in the first half morning of the event, i was able to try prawning!
the staff was teaching me how to know whether the prawn has take the bait,
it was quite fast when i managed to catch my first prawn of the day!
that is worthy of a photo.
the guy behind me in this photo, couldn't catch any after i catch a few times that he decide to change spots instead. haha
in the end i caught 5! 

some selfies that i took while on the way to work that day!

I can't wait to watch kungfu panda once its out!
i want to watch the zootopia as well as the london has fallen movie!
after shopping around,we went to have Porn's!
thai food! after a day of work at the event!
thai iced tea that we ordered.
tom yum seafood hotpot, a must have when i had thai food!
drumlets, prawn and fish cake
overall the food is quite nice, but the price is abit overpriced,
i had nice thai food that cost cheaper than this!
but the tomyum hotpot do have alot of ingredients!
till then.

The Proposal @ Carlton Hotel

Hello readers! I am here to update my blog again. This time round, it's great news!
He proposed!

It was definitely not a sudden decision, we have been dating for 3 years but we feel like we known each other well enough to spend our remaining lifetime together.  
I would say this was the official proposal because he given me the proposal ring on one fine day, when he was picking me up and we was chatting while he was driving before he suddenly shoved a tiny box to me while waiting for the traffic light. I wasn't expecting anything so i open the box and it was a ring! As the photo shown below,

I was surprised at that moment because i wasn't expecting a proposal ring!
He was not even showing any early signs before that he was going to buy a ring for me too, but the ring size was too small so we had to send it back to alter the ring size. The price for this ring costs 8k! I was just curious about the price. Hurhur

The official proposal only came much later which was on 12 February, just 2 days before valentine's day. Prior to that day, i totally forgot about having this date with him as i was planning to have my friends coming over to my house for cny gathering but later rescheduling the date with them.

Initially he told me to apply for leave for this date, but i couldn't get away as i was busy with my work, i didn't even given any serious thought about it and i thought it was what he claimed to celebrate early for valentine's day.
He was so sweet to pick me up after work and i had no idea where he was bringing me, initially i thought we was going east coast park, but later realising we was going town instead.
I remember it was raining heavily that day he brought us to Carlton hotel. I thought he was bringing us to eat buffet. We went to the hotel lobby hotel and i was rather puzzled when he was dragging his feet and we was not heading the restaurant direction but going up the lift until i saw him taking a keycard up to tap the lift.

At that moment, i know.. Aha! He is up to something, definitely a proposal! My intuition has always been very strong. He was being sneaky and running in the room before me and i was kept waiting outside for awhile before he opened the door for me and it was so cute to see the two super cute standing hello kitty balloons!

He decorate the room for the proposal. I was impressed.

There was another Hello Kitty balloons on the wall!

He went to collect the roses that he ordered, preparing the balloons and booking the hotel. 
Thank you for putting the effort into making this proposal a memorable one!
I remember asking him whether we are staying here tonight and i didn't even prepared anything!

But he surprised me once again when he told me he has bring all my essential toiletries and my clothes.

The bedroom area and the bathroom

Carlton hotel used molten brown amenities as well, similar as Quincy hotel, but i still prefer the one provided by Quincy hotel.
Their molten brown series are different.

Beside the ring, he bought me this love bangle too, apparently i saw it sometime ago in his car and he didn't give it to me until now. It has a key to unlock this bangle so he was saying he want to lock me in this entire lifetime.

We went for our dinner and it was the first time we tried this Japanese fine dining restaurant called Han. I didn't know what to order when i look at the menu though. Even we did ordered something,
This was the appetiser,

The staff served us more than 10 different kind of sticks that they will put each stick in our plate, and telling us which stick to dip in which sauce.

matcha ice-cream!
After our meal, we went to stroll around since it was near Raffles city and that place was the first time we meet and getting to know each other before we went official bf-gf. I bought some macaroons too!

We went to Macdonald to buy some supper before returning to our room and i saw this cute toy that we order a happy meal instead. Our view the next day before checking out of the hotel.

I was having my friends at my house for the cny gathering with Jeremy's friends joining this year. We brought back all the stuffs such as my Hello Kitty standing balloons, roses and it was so funny when Duffy was scared of the hello kitty balloons just because they move due to the wind.

The flowers was withering, and i had no choice but to separate it according to olm's advice into dried flowers by hanging them separately outside my house corridor, it was not very successful because it was raining for the next few days and the flowers didn't survive. Haha, but it did capture my neighour's attention as everyone was looking at the flowers when they was walking pass our unit.

Check out duffy being kaypoh at our door!

Meanwhile, after the proposal, it means we will be starting with our wedding preparations soon!
We are pretty fast as we had secure our wedding banquet venue, i have asked my friends to become my sisters to help me out at my wedding.

We had also paid a deposit for the bridal package and we should be planning a meet up session with both our parents soon!
Till then!
