Mom's New Toy

We bought this funny thing from some art&craft store. Knitting Loom. And had no idea of how to operate the thing hahaha

At first, I tried to read the tutorial book. I got lost. So I looked up some video from youtube and BINGO!

Found one about how to make a baby hat. It was perfect for us as beginners. We need a very simple thing, as simple as possible :D

not bad, ay? ;p

Viktor Kee replied my email!!!


Oh gosh!
Oh gosh!
Oh gosh!


Oh gosh!
Oh gosh!
Oh gosh!

Sometimes, if I'm not myself and really out of my mind, I wrote fan mail to some of my idol. So far I only wrote to Jason Castro and Mark Kanemura but no reply from them hehe

Back to 2008, the first time I follow American Idol from the audition to their final episode. I never fully watched 1 season or any season. Me and my bestest freind, WW, both of us suddenly love this season 7. I rooted for David Cook and she rooted for Jason Castro. She was crazy in love with him hahaha so I made this artwork just to make fun of her.

the frog prince stuffed doll was my birthday present that I just received from my other bestie

I showed it to her via YM, she was shocked, just saying "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!" and suddenly disconnected hahahaha

After a while, she online again and asked me if I wanted to sent the print out version to Jason Castro in USA. She was too shy to sent her artwork by herself. We send it and we never know what happened to our artwork. Did Jason Castro really saw them or they just lay down with another ton of fan mails.

turned them into mini pop-up book

Later, I just realized, I never send anything to David Cook hahahaha

Then in 2010, I watched the So You Thing You Can Dance Season 4 and fell in love with Mark Kanemura. He has a very weird dance style. Very unique. Just loving it hehehe I just send him a fan mail, maybe someday I will make some artwork and present it to him :)

Now, back to Viktor Kee.


I almost fell of my chair when I saw his reply. Only 30 mins after I send my email. Maybe I was just right in time when he was checking his email hihihi lucky ^^

just a very short one but I was really really really happy and burst with joy

As a token of gratitude, I made him this drawing.

based on the postcard from Voyage de la Vie souvenir shop

I hope he will like it :)

I hope it can made his day the same way he made my day :D

I also made this funny cartoon but too afraid to sent it to him hehe not sure if he will appreciate the joke ;p because I think juggling for him is sacred. It was after all his job and his passion.

maybe this is what will happen if I really shout out his name during his performance hehehe

one more time wont hurt anybody...

Viktor Kee, you are truly AMAZING!!!

Viktor Kee, you are AMAZING!!!

I really wish I shout his name out loud ;p

a postcard that I bought at the souvenir shop

A sudden and short trip to Singapore. Bought the plane ticket on Friday (depart at 7.30 on Tuesday and arrive back at 22.10 on Thursday) then I browse the web and booked the ticket for the Voyage de la Vie show. I never booked online tickets before, the Resort World Sentosa crew were really nice and gave me tutor step by step :)

I didn't know why I cannot go to sleep that Monday night, maybe because I drank too much coffee or maybe I'm just too excited to finally see my beautiful / amazing / talented juggler hihihi

First time I knew about Viktor Kee was nearly 10 years ago. I saw some bargain VCDs on some shop. The cover really mesmerized me. When I run the VCD and saw him, it was love at first sight. Viktor Kee and Cirque du Soleil. My journey began. Gonna be a very long journey chasing The Cirque du Soleil ;p

my first cirque du soleil live show was zaia at the venetian hotel-macau back at 2009, maybe I can blog about it someday :D

Arrived at Changi airport around 9.30 local time. A little bit cloudy with some drizzle. So me and mom decided to take cab. Apparently, we got ourself one sophisticated cab. See it for yourself.

taximeter, driver's info and also his cellphone, card swipe, radio, gps, and not sure what was the tiny machine on the upper left.

After put our luggage at the rental apartment room, we went to Mustafa Center to meet my stupid friend and had some lunch. The server a little bit scary, no smile on his face, he's dark and hairy everywhere. But when my mom order some Teh Tarik, he repeated, "Teh tarik for mama." all of us laugh and he finally smiled at us.

lemme see... it's okra, palak paneer, chicken tikka, and naan bread, all is goooooood fooooood :9

With our stomach full, me and my mom continued our trip to Marina Bay Sands, my stupid friend had to go back to work hahaha bye-bye NiQ, thanx for accompanying us :D

The Marina Bay Sands it's one FREAKING ENORMOUSLY HUGE building. I'm not sure where were we when we get off from the bus but this is our first view from inside the building.

think it's the hotel lobby

Bought tickets for the show at the receptionist table.

it's almost full, not really a good seat though, 2nd floor, 5th row from the back, but at least we got the tickets :)

Then we went to the 56th floor.

??? on progress

esplanade, art museum, and floating stage

We walked pass the casino and arrived at the shopping center.

The show was fabulous!!!
The 1st 60 mins told the story about little Simba, break for 15 mins, then the 2nd 60 mins told the story about the adult Simba. I love the costumes and the props, I know I was sitting too far to pay attention to the details but I'm sure they must be really really cool :D

love the SCAR character, his costume, his cocky attitude, and his voice, villains are so cool hahahaha

on the way to find taxi's queue

We're a little late and the queue probably 15 meters long or more but the service was really fast and the taxi always available. Probably only took us 30 mins waiting.

I'm woke up a little bit late, kinda exhausted from yesterday's excitements hahaha today's trip was to go to Jurong Bird Park. I know Jurong was far from Orchard but never knew it was really really reallllyyyyy far (-___________-)

It said 51 mins long but I didn't know why our MRT terminated 3 times in here and there. So we had to wait for another and another and another MRT to pick us up. So it took almost 1 and a half hours for us to get there. Thank goodness the weather's nice. Time to have fun :D

First stop, Pinguins!!!

this little guy stood near the the cage fence, when I took his pictures, his friend that wasn't far from him, tapped my camera hihihi looked like his friend also wanted me to take his pictures

the jealous penguin was the one on the right

We didn't explore the whole park. It was so big and we're too tired to walk around hahaha so we just visited some of it. We saw the Parakeets and got the change to feed them. Then there's Flamingos, Macaws, and Pelicans.

very nice and clean environments

Funny story on the Pelican cage. Looked like most of them were enjoying their nap time. So when I got closer to one of them to get some pictures, he suddenly opened his eyes. I almost jumped. Uh-oh bad mood Pelican...

please don't eat me...

found this red telephone box near the entrance/exit gate, quick, dial 62442

you've arrived at the magical world...
hehehe it's the view from 2nd floor of the railway station

Next trip, Resort World Senrosa.
The one I've been longing for.
The Voyage de la Vie show.
Viktor Kee!!! ;;)

We went to Vivo City to have dinner. Me and my mom really love Vivo City's food court near the Sentosa Express Station and our favorite menu is Rojak. I forgot to take the picture of it since I've been craving that Rojak for so long hahaha

3 times to Vivo City, 3 times to this food court ;p

Didn't have time to explore the Resort, we arrived only 1 hour before the show started. Since, I was borrowing my cousin credit card to buy the online tickets, I was afraid there's gonna be some problem. So we just looked around very quickly, snap here and there, then went to the Festive Grand.

cute decoration from one of the candy store

lake of dreams

festive grand receptionist

didn't realized it before but it was 3RD ROW FROM THE CENTER STAGE!!! BEST SEAT EVER!!!

I wanna told the so many cool acts of the show, but I had to drew some pictures first hehehe maybe so other time. But 1 thing for sure...

The show was AWEEESOMEEE!!!
For me, it's much much better than the Lion King show hehe I always love live performance, especially circus. I already watched so many circus show on VCDs, DVDs, and even on the TV but the feeling to watch it live is fantastic. The set, the thrill, their speed and accuracy, and the fact that this time the stage was only 2 meters away from where I sat was truly a wonderful experience.

there, there he is, the most handsome guy, the one on the far right side with high collar red clothes, my darling juggler

Viktor Kee, you are AMAZING!!!

I really wish I shout his name out loud that time hahaha I was overwhelm by the fact that I could see him perform his act live, right in front of my eyes. It was like one of my dreams come true and I just didn't know what to do except clapping my hand so hard and hold my tears hahaha yes, my eyes were wet from too much happiness :'D

I was thinking if I could wait a little longer so they can change their costume and then I could greed them when they came out from the Festive Grand maybe I could get some pictures with the cast but too bad that didn't happen. My mom was so tired and wanted to get some rest, so we went back to the apartment.

Until now, I still regret why I didn't shout Viktor Kee's name hahaha next time I meet somebody special, I shall remember to shout their name out loud. Disregard all other people hahaha

Thursday, 24 March 2011
Last day. Since both of us very tired, we just chilled out from mall to mall around Orchard hehehe overall it was a lovely trip. I almost got broke from buying all those ticket shows not to forget the plane tickets and apartment rent but no worries, it was all worthed :)

Viktor Kee, you are truly AMAZING!!!

Hopefully, I can watch some other Cirque du Soleil show ;)
Wish me luck!

Little Monsters Cupcakes

Been very very busy lately huhuhu so here's some quick review of some things that happened between December 2010 until March 2011 ;p

In December, I worked together with my beautiful and talented friend who also has a passion for decorating cake. Our best friend's little sister was having Alice in Wonderland Sweet 16th Party. We took charge in making the birthday cake and we choose to make Topsy Turvy Mad Hatter cake. It's our first time working together and our first time making topsy turvy cake. We looked so many videos, read so many books, texts, writing, anything about how to make topsy turvy cake for dummies hahaha

My friend already bake the cake so I went to her place very early in the morning just to decorate it. It took almost 16 hours just to decorate the cake, my oh my... We present the cake to the birthday girl on the next day. She was really happy so did both of us, tired but very pleased with the result :)

topsy turvy mad hatter chesire cat cake

and here's the Blue Rose Cupcakes

In January, we worked together again for 1 month baby anniversary cake. We had to make 12 mini cakes and 50 boxes of 4 cupcakes in just 2 days. Thank goodness everything finished just in time. Many people came to help us :')

it's a baby girl

Later in January, I received some call for my friend's friend, she wanted to discuss about farewell gift for our friend who was going to Rotterdam. She gave me blank note book and asked me to draw some characters from their circle of friends at the cover and also some comic about them inside the note book. She told me everything about them, who to draw, what they do, their hobbies etc. But it's not enough for the comic part.

I only got 3 days to draw and thanks to the internet, everybody pitching in some funny stories about them and my friend who's leaving to Rotterdam. And I manage to finished just in time

a recycle note book from recycle paper by unicef

Nothing much happened in February except my birthday that didn't feel like a birthday because I was busy to work and because it's 1 day before the Chinese New Year hahaha everybody focus on the big CNY celebration :))
