Just read the article and watched the video of K-pop Star Hunt 3 finalist, Stephanie Koh going 'I don't feel proud to be a Singaporean'.
Explaining whether she was bothered that her behaviour on the show may portray Singaporeans in a bad light, Stephanie said she "would not be bothered about representing this country because, to be honest, I don't really feel proud to be Singaporean'.
She went on to explain that her feelings were brought about by people in Singapore being 'small-minded'.
"Everyone here is submissive; everyone here don’t know how to think out of the box," she said.
"No one here is creative. Everyone here just thinks the same way and follow the same rules. It's too rigid for my taste."
When asked if she identified herself as a Singaporean, she replied that she saw herself as 'one of a kind'.
She's really "one of a kind" and i applaud her for being so daring to say all of that in an interview to Razor TV.
I completely disagree with her saying NO ONE HER IS CREATIVE because she doesn't know EVERYONE and she sure hasn't seen some of the works some Singaporeans produce. There's so much to be proud of being Singaporean but i also do understand not everyone loves Singapore which explains why some people choose to migrate overseas. OK that's not the main thing i want to say.
I watched a part of the video where she said she was pissed because when she went to Korea, she was made to sing Korean songs.
BUT UH.....WAIT....YOU JOINED K-POP STAR HUNT?!?!
I order a plate of chicken rice, and i don't expect the chicken to be on the plate.
I thought that part was damn funny.
That's all i have to say hahaha bye!

Jolly Bee - Best Ice Jelly in Town
Omg....this is like the best dessert drink EVER. It's honey lime flavored. Have it on its own or add ice if you find it too sweet.
I used to buy this every time i'm at this particular bak kut teh place in Malaysia and I LOOOOVE IT.
I didn't know where to get it in Singapore till one day, a friend's friend approached me to help me spread the word that she's the distributor.
Since CNY is coming, i decided to put up this ad for her! Out of goodwill! It's like the best drink to serve kids, it's healthy and yummy. When i received the box of it, i had one everyday till i had no more left....that's like 12 days straight and I WAS NOT SICK OF IT ONE BIT. :X I swear it's that yummy!
If you have never tried it before, GO ORDER A BOX TO TRY! Then....thank me later for recommending if you love it as much as i do. Pray you don't get as addicted as i am hahaha.
Price is $30 for 24....It's around $1+ if you get a box of 24! Really cheap and good!!!
If you are keen to order you can contact Valerie at +65 93825076!

Decided to list all of 'em out here so you don't have to scroll all the way down. Shopping would be easier for you girls!
p.s i apologize that this month has been filled with a lot of ads as during this period, tons of blog shops want to feature their CNY collection.
p.s i haven't really been going out as i too have been busy with SHOPOHSOFICKLE stuff as well! can't wait for this busy work period to be over....really looking forward to celebrating CNY.
Being someone who goes out a lot for events, i get to meet a lot of people and make a lot of new friends. Not everyone gets a long with everyone so there are some wonderful friendships which i know will last a lifetime, and then there are some which i wish i didn't have. Some take years to fade away; others end spectacularly.
Here's a list of the different kind of friends i have...
THE BEST FRIEND
The friend you can tell EVERYTHING to. She listens but never judges. She tells it to you straight. They are friends who know you inside out. Friends who know the ugliest things about you. Seen you at your best and your worst.
THE SISTER FRIEND
She's just like a sister from another mother. Sometimes she does things which pisses you off but you can't get that angry with her and you love her no matter what. You want to look after her and teach her stuff. You are extremely patient around her.
THE OPPOSITE-SEX BEST FRIEND
The friend of the opposite you are so close to but will never be in a relationship with. You can hold hands with the person when you're out with them, he even carries your shopping bags for you. However, you will never think of being in a relationship with that person. Everyone thinks you guys make a great couple but you know it will never happen.
THE CHILDHOOD FRIEND
People you meet in kindergarten, your playground or within your family friends. Most of the time around the same age as you. You don't always meet him/her but when you do, you always talk about the past which is a really nice feeling because it tends to stir fond feelings and cherished memories.
THE FIT FRIEND
The person who makes you to get your lazy ass up and moving! The one always looks so fresh and energetic, accompanied with a great body. The one who motivates you to get fit. You just feel bad eating junk food and being lazy around them.
THE PARTY FRIEND
The friend you will only be seen with in clubs and never in daylight. Most of the time you only meet him/her outside the club. It usually starts with an excited "OMG BABE! HELLO! LET'S GO DRINK!" *TIGHT HUG*. He/She is usually crazy and fun and you love his/her company a lot. Whenever you go to parties, you just look forward to meeting that person. You can spend hours with that person together holding each other and hugging each other but when day time comes, you guys lead life separately and you realize you hardly know a thing about him/her.
THE OLDER FRIEND
The friend who is much older and speaks like your dad/mom. The person who mentors you with wit and wisdom. Most of the time it happens to be your teacher. The person whom you usually listen to and not want to argue with because he/she is older and wiser.
THE ONLINE FRIEND
The friendly person you interact with very often on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook. You think you know a lot about the person's character and personality just by looking at their posts. You have never met them before in real life but you feel close to them in some way because of how similar you guys think.
THE V.I.P EVERYWHERE FRIEND
Someone you are very proud of being seen talking to. Usually a successful business person or a celebrity or simply a very highly talented person. They become the life of every party, and intentionally or unintentionally hog all the limelight. Someone everyone usually want favors from. Usually a rich and very generous person.
When you are around them, you just get your "bitch mode" on. Conversations usually begin like this "did you hear about xxxx...?!". That person seems to know something about everyone, Who's dating who, who cheated on who etc. Be very careful and never trust them with your own personal secrets, they might be people who will soon be bartering your deepest secrets for someone else’s.
You don't always see them but when you know they are always just a phone call away because you are very important to them. You both lead really different lives and don't usually see each other but the distance doesn't make you guys drift apart. Every time you guys meet, it never feels weird. You would have endless things to catch up on and you guys always have a great time together.
The go-to person to get discounts for things. They usually work at brands you like and give you great discounts. And they happen know a lot of people who can give discounts. You always visit them at the shops they work at to chit-chat with them.
THE OBNOXIOUS FRIEND
The friend you wish you never had. Usually very rude and loud. It is embarrassing being seen with them as they speak really loudly and have very bad manners. They are insensitive to people's feelings and can hurt people's feelings without realizing it. Like eg. if someone fat walks pass, they'd point and laugh and make fun of them. You kinda feel scared to tell them it's wrong to do something because you are afraid they'd raise their voice at you. You want drop them but sometimes it's difficult when they are friends with your other friend. You try to avoid them but they always come up to you and stand next to you.
THE NEEDY FRIEND
The friend who comes to you only when he/she needs something. Although he/she only comes to you when he/she needs something, you are still glad to help them because you can.
THE HAPPY PILL FRIEND
They are always saying "Yes!" to everything and whenever you are down, being around this person makes everything better because he/she is always all smiles. This person just oozes out positive energy and it is a joy being around them.
THE IM-JEALOUS-OF FRIEND
She has everything. She's everything you wished you were. But you like being around her despite it all. You're jealous but you don't hate her for all that she has.
What other friends do you have?

Everytime i'm at a fruit stall, i hardly buy watermelon.
Cus they usually cut it like that (that is if i don't have the time to wait for the auntie to cut it into smaller pieces)
Sometimes i really want to eat it but when i think about this mess, i choose not to buy it. Lol.
Ok see this image below...
White part is the bites i can have successfully without making a mess.
Then by the 4th bite...
I will have watermelon juice all over the side of my face.
I don't know if it's just me or what but i can never eat a watermelon neatly. There'll just be a lot of juice all over my mouth and face. Real mess. Haha.
So yeah, i never order watermelon at fruit stalls despite it being one of my favorite fruits.
Recently bought a new camera, the Sony NEX-3N! I've heard great things about it from Donna and decided to get it and i'm loving it! Absolutely in love with the image quality.
So recently i mentioned i haven't been out much. However, i've been visiting the boy's other apartment pretty often for swims. And to getaway from noise and people because it's such a quiet place, so nice to sit here at the sofa to do my work. It's like a stay cation....only not at a hotel but the bf's place. He doesn't even come here so this is really a great place to be to get some alone quiet time. Hehe.
This is also i place i do all the domestic chores. Like a cleaning training centre for me. Which i enjoy a lot. Everytime i'm here i see myself wiping all the glass, mirrors and tables followed by dancing with a mop.
Ok now my cam-whore shots from today....
Haven't been to the gym in awhile so my body is not in the best shape but i've been swimming quite a bit so it's not too bad lah. I never really did swimming as cardio but i tried doing it thrice this week and it's pretty good! Only a 30 min swim and my legs and arms felt jelly.
Trying to do more cardio this week before CNY cus i am prepared to EAT LIKE A PIG. Hahaha. I'm horrible lor...always exercise just so i can eat more. :X
K that's all for today, bye!

Nothing in life is constant. There is neither absolute happiness nor absolute sadness. There are only the changes in our moods that continuously oscillate between these two extremes.
At any given moment we are comparing how we currently feel to how we felt at another time – comparing one level of our contentment to another. In this way, those of us who have felt great sadness are best able to feel heightened feelings of happiness after we emotionally heal. In other words, happiness and sadness need each other. One reinforces the other. Humans must know misery to identify times of elation.
The key is to focus on the good. May you live each moment of your life consciously, and realize that all the happiness you seek is present if you are prepared to notice it. If you are willing to appreciate that this moment is far better than it could have been, you will enjoy it more for what it truly is

Yay to jogging 10km tonight! Not my best timing but it's been 3 months since I did 10km.
I choose to eat and then exercise so I don't gain weight. I'm the kinda girl who finishes all her rice and sometimes have second servings because my appetite is humongous. I'm eating all the time and my friends are amazed at how much food I can input in my body. At the rate I eat, I should be way fatter but I'm proud to say I'm at a healthy weight and don't have an ugly bulging tummy.
Occasionally I still face certain weight issues because I stupidly compare myself to models. But that's fine, I'm only human right?
There's really no secret to why I don't gain that much weight because I love jogging! Everytime after a sinful meal, I try my best to go for a 30min jog. Although it's short, it works. And on days I feel like I ate a cow, I go for longer runs. Sometimes I think, wow at the rate I'm exercising my body should be way nicer but well, I really love food and enjoy eating too much so ill just make do with this body. Haha. I can't wait for the day I cut down my food intake so I can achieve a VS body but for now, let me eat and share good food places with y'all. Today was great as I went to 2 places for really good food so do look forward to my next post!

The boys and i had some fun with food at The Cajun Kings!
It was an interesting experience at The Cajun Kings as we were given no cutleries. Just a hammer.
So we ordered fries, mussels, prawns (TCK Combo) and lobsters! We didn't order the crab but a lot of people around us ordered that so i'll try that next.
For the prawns and mussels, we had it in The King's Mix. You can choose from the 3 different seasonings they have.
And for the lobster, we ordered it in the Garlic Butter Mix which was really finger licking good!
It was messy but definitely fun! Plus the food is good! Everyone should try dining without cutleries and messing up the table at least once. :)
I rate this place
The Cajun Kings
15-1 Jalan Riang (near Serangoon/Braddell Road)
Contact: 6284 4426
When i first heard of the place Wimbly Lu, i'm like, what? Who's that? Hahaha. So anyway, it's a place which serves super good desserts just beside The Cajun Kings.
After a super full meal with the boys at The Cajun Kings (see the post below), we still went for desserts since the queue wasn't THAT long and IT'S RARE. The previous time i went, the queue was mad long and i didn't get to try it.
The best part about my foodie boys is that THEY LOVE TO EAT AS MUCH AS I DO. So it's really a joy dining with them. Plus i don't feel so bad about my huge appetite. It's like I BLEND IN SO WELL. Haha.
So we ordered quite a bit...and finished it all because THE CAKES AND WAFFLES ARE SOOOOO GOOD.
Root Beer Cake with Ice Cream
The cake really tasted like root beer! It was like having a root beer float.
Rocky Mountain - Chocolate with Marshmallow
I didn't really like this although it tasted good because as the name suggests, it's really a rock haha.
Hazelnut Butterscotch Bar
Tasted super good cus of the butterscotch but i wish it came in a cake form, softer and easier to share cus this was pretty hard.
Waffles are crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. PERF!!!!
I've heard about their Molten Lava Cake and i must try that the next time! :)
One of the best dessert place i've been to in SG. Plus the place is so pretty.

I can't believe how quick January flew by. I can't even believe it's 2014 already.
This year's CNY i saw myself catching up on sleep and just being a total bum. Ain't complaining because i'm loving it!
Here are some pictures from my camera! Didn't take much pictures cus i'm getting chubby....and my complexion is worsening by the day cus of all the junk i've been consuming. Haha.
A few days back we got invited to the Gala for THE LION MEN. I loved the show! Am super impressed and proud of it cus it's a Singaporean film. Plus i found a new eye candy - the girl who's the main lead. Hehe. Go catch it if you haven't!
Shoes from P.V.S (Cineleisure #02-05) - Mention Ohsofickle/Tammy for 5% off! Won't reveal where i got the top from but i'm doing a similar piece for OSF so look out for it if you like the top! :)

Today i made the biggest decision of my life but i'll wait until everything is good before i share the news. It's scary but exciting.....
7 February 2014
Check out the previews on our Facebook page:
Believe Happiness is a Choice
For me, this was a hard one at first. I thought that people were either unhappy or happy (and I was one of the unhappy ones). I used to blame this on all kinds of outside forces –- fate, experiences, parents, relationships –- but never really stopped to think that I could choose to be happy.
Sure, this isn’t always easy, but it is always, always an option. Teaching myself to see that happiness is a choice has been one of the greatest things I’ve ever done for myself.
Now when I find myself in a bad situation, I know that it’s up to me to find the good, to be happy regardless of what’s happening around me. I am no longer pointing fingers, placing blame. I realize that everything happens how it happens and it’s up to me to choose how I want to feel about it. I am in control of my happiness level and no one can take that away from me.
The holiday of love when sweeties across the country celebrate with crimson roses, chocolate hearts, cuddly stuffed animals and candlelit dinners for two.
I've always been a girl who looks forward to Valentines Day because since i was in Secondary School, it has been a day i receive awesome presents! Even though i was not that chio, I was lucky to be a girl in school who had boys going after me so it kinda felt like a "second birthday". It has always been a day i'd expect something to be given to me.
However, V'day is in 2 days time and unlike the past few years, i'm not in the mood for it. I don't care if my boyfriend gives me roses or not....i really really don't. Usually i'd be all like "omg i'm so excited i wonder what he has planned for me!!!". My whole mindset towards this day changed so much. Honestly, to me Valentine’s Day is all about women and the burden lies on the men to make it special - Men won't necessarily see the lovey-dovey gestures returned. It's a time most girls get to "show off" to their friends how "awesome" and "sweet" their boyfriends are. I don't know why but this year, i'm totally cool if my boyfriend doesn't do anything. I'd usually expect a surprise or something but i think my boyfriend has given me quite a bit the whole time we've been together that i really don't expect anything. That's actually a new feeling to feel with my boyfriend.....to feel like i've received so much that i don't want anymore? Haha.
I see people treat one another like absolute crap 364 days of the year, but on February 14th, they’re nice to one another – and that somehow magically means that they are in love. That’s not love. Love is being nice to one another every day. Show your loved ones respect, give them the gift of communication, and don’t think that you have to slap down $100 for a bouquet of roses to say “I love you”.
In fact, i'm considering if i should attend my property class instead of skipping it. The initial plan was to skip the class because it's Valentines Day but then since i really am not particular about having dinner that night and don't mind doing it during the weekend instead i don't think i should skip it anymore. I guess i've grown up and realized there's no need to make a big hoohaa out of Valentines Day? Yay?
But of course, i'm only a girl, i'd still smile and be happy to receive roses and chocolates lah...Not saying i hate it or anything but instead, i'm just saying i won't feel disappointed and sad if i don't get any because what matters most is my boyfriend treats me well and is nice to me every other day~ Actually, i'd rather receive roses and gifts on a normal day......than on Valentines Day - a day where i already "expect" a gift. Y'know? It's so much sweeter if i came home to a bouquet of roses after a long day at work.
