    I have been posting several food photos but have not been sharing them on ViolinStar.NET. So now I am going to share them… and also talk a bit about them too.

    I took this photo of my meal at Wooloomooloo Steakhouse. It’s probably my most expensive meal. It’s also my Masters graduation dinner which I had with my friends (Alan and Jeffrey). It’s a bit sad that how graduate school can be a little cold. But I’m glad that I have made some friends whom I will still meet up every now and then. :smile:

    I had lunch at Toast Box (silly me for not realising that the cafe that we want to visit is closed on public holidays). I went with Eunice and Rui Yun and had a HTHT (Heart to Heart Talk) with them. It’s interesting to see how different we have all become but we are still together. Friends forever, hopefully!

    I had mala xiang guo at Fusionopolis I. I used to have it when I was still working at Autodesk. Now that I left Autodesk, I didn’t have much chance to have it for a long time. So glad that Chin Hau agreed to go with me after we collected our graduation gowns back in June.

    I had this with Chin Hau because he hasn’t had Fish and Co for a long time and he loves it. Haha, he looks so excited (like a little kid) when he orders his dinner. I get my chocolate bingsu from Nunsongyee too. Yay, I finally found someone who is willing to have chocolate bingsu with me!

    I met up with Randumps and they met Chin Hau for the first time.

    “You can’t seem to be predict how much you can eat…” – Chin Hau

    This is not the first time he said it and somehow he always helped me finish the unfinished food. Hehe. On a side note, I really should order less in future.

    I was previously based at Marina One office where the headquarters of my company is and they have really good scenery (well, I think Guoco Tower has better scenery though). There’s an Indian restaurant nearby and I ordered chicken biryani for lunch. It’s pretty cool that there is a layer of prata/roti on top of the biryani.

    Doesn’t it look cool? It doesn’t taste that nice though but it certainly looks really cool though.

    I met up with the Randumps clique for a dimsum lunch. Dimsum is more of desserts to me and it is my first time having it as a lunch. Luckily we didn’t overorder and managed to finish everything. We also had chinese desserts as well!

    On the same day, I met up with Huiling for okonomiyaki. Yes, I went back to Seiwaa. It is my favourite okonomiyaki and teppanyaki restaurant in Singapore now.

    I also went for omurice at Suntec City with Ming Lian (a different day). It is my first time trying the lava omu rice and it was delicious! Haha, I went back there for the second time recently too.

    Okay, that’s a lot of food and I think I am getting fat with so many good food in Singapore and snacks in office. :cry:

    I met up with my friends and colleagues (different days) for dinner at Thai Express. Haha, I actually love the chendol drink from Thai Express.

    Haha, not sure if I will get sick of Thai Express. Actually the thai food at Thai Express is not very nice but they have good desserts…

    I went to Artbox when it is in Singapore a few weeks ago. It was much better than last year. Last year was so crowded and there was no crowd control at all. This year, there were bag checks and some form of crowd control. The space rented is much bigger as well. I managed to get some wooden keychains for myself and a cute handmade crotchet keychain. I love crotchet keychains, or just about anything that is handmade. Haha. Is it just me or do you guys love handmade stuff too?

    I went there twice – first with Alex and Jin Quan, second with Hui Keng and Yi Wei. Took some photos and was surprised to see quite a number of people bringing their DSLRs taking photos too. Oh, and the usual selfie crowd as well. Somehow carnivals are no longer as nice as before. It’s more commercial-driven decorations (towards Snapchat, Instagram, and other social media platforms) rather than the actual fun. It’s not as nice to take photos in carnivals when you see a sea of people whipping out their phones to take photos instead of enjoying the food and games…

    I have been blogging for more than 17 years (well, I started in 2001) and this new wave of social media kind of got me off guard. I am not a fan of posting my selfies on social media for strangers to comment and judge me. But I do love posting photos of the stuff and scenery I saw. I love taking photos and sharing some of what I took. I also have a brand name (lihotography) dedicated for my photography works.

    Anyway, I have scheduled my photos to be posted on Instagram in the next few days. Once it is posted on Instagram, I will post them here for you guys to enjoy. Photos are below for you guys to enjoy! :happy:
