Went dinner with Sebastian since he told me he is coming to office we decided to go Minoriya Japanese Restaurant which is just opposite my office.  We went there once during lunch we only eat their bento set didn't take the buffet.  So we have ample time to enjoy their buffet dinner.

They have about 140 dishes ... we order alot to try ... and both of us feels that their grilled mackerel fish is the best it came a thick slice each and I think we both ate a total of about 10 of it.  Sashimi is fresh ... tempura is well fried .... yummy!

Its located at Tanjong Katong Road ...  so if you are driving there is public carpark behind or if you could find space along the road you can park there free after 7pm and free during Noon time till 5pm.

Sunday & Monday - 6 & 7 June 2010

Saturday - 5 June 10

Thanks to Baba 弟 aka Jeremy for asking me to go Ah Poh's garage to service our car.  Hahaha is been a long time since we service our car and the due time to service is in Jan ....and we do not wanna go back to the usual one we do so ya thanks to Baba!

We went over at around 2pm ... .and Ah Poh told me we have to wait like 2-3hrs cos our car need a big overhaul .... and since is near to 80KM he suggest we do a thorough check.  His garage is at Tampines factory area so the nearest we can go is Tampines Safra.  So we headed to The Mind Cafe for our brunch is a good place to meet up with friends ... can play board game and chit chat there. 

At around 3+pm we headed back cos Baba came as he need to service his car too.

Chit chatted for awhile and everything is done up .... Ah Poh told us that our alarm got problem but he dun have this service here.  So he recommend us another shop at the other block ask them to do a check for us.

The alarm really got problem after checking it so we change the whole thing cos if we dun change Dearie cannot use the car remote to lock the door and cannot auto lock it when he drive off.  So for safety reason we change the whole thing.  Now everything is done!  Any friends who wanna do car servicing can go to Foo Brothers Auto Service located at 9002 Tampines St 93 #01-42 can say you are Ah meow's frd

Coco arranged us to meet at Brotzeit at Vivo is a nice place ... I love it!  A good place to chit chat and have meal together.  Coco is the first to arrive .... and follow by me ... so we started to drink and wait for others to arrive cos they dun allow us to have a dining area before everyone arrive so we just sit around at the bar counter for some drink first. 

Coco ordered Weissbier she drank 2 or more glass before I come.  Wooo hoo she is really ready to party tonight!  Hazel is the third to arrive ... so ya we gals chit chat first.  Happy to know that Hazel is with Ricky now .... Ricky is really happy now he is in a relationship!  Finally he is attached as friends we are very happy for him too!

After Penny, Vera and Peiying came we are being directed to a dining area and we left everything to Coco to order .... we really have alot ... and can't finish all the food ... and they happen to see I have my sandwich box they all just chuck everything into my sandwich box! *LOL*

Went over to St James and stay for awhile to wait for PC to come over..... before hazel and I make our way home.  Saw my dear friend Ryan at Movida too ... is been very long since we meet up.  So nice to bump into him today ..... I think we have not met up after he attended my wedding *LOL*  He is still the same no change at all!

2nd night of the wake is also a holiday therefore lotsa people came ....... starting from noon.

All of us tried our best not to be too sad cos we still need to oversee the people who came to the wake.  As for me I still try my best to carry Nat finally I get to carry her!

More people came at around 7+pm .... my Parents came too.  And thanks to Jasmine & Hubby and Jo for coming.  It was raining very heavily .... which we feel that cos Ah Ma wants people to stay on therefore this rain is extremely heavy.  Ah Ma love crowd!

And when Ah Ma passed on is our Great Grandfather's death anniversary and we think that she dun want Ah Ma to suffered any longer so he took her with him.  And Dearie told us that he dreamt of Ah Ma passed on the day before but dare not say anything out.

Waited for the whole night finally Ah Keng (Davis's bro) brought Shi Shi back ..... cos we feel that we can't go fetch her else we will all cry together!  The moment she step down from the car she walk towards Ah Ma mourning area and say out:"阿嬷, 按作你没等我回来!" (read using hokkien) all our tears started to roll down ..... she is really sad cos she is the closest to Ah Ma.

Small Uncle talk to her and she slowly become more calm..... all of us feel so sad seeing this scenario.  We went back home to rest at around 2am my in law wanted to stay overnight but we scare they are too tired so my dear dottie is with them for the next few nights so that they can rest more at home.  As for us we can be at ease when she is not around and would like to thanks to my BIL whom assigned their maid to look after my dottie for the next few days at Grandma's wake!
