Spent the day with Wany watching Harry Potter (twice), eating cakes and just be typical tai-tais.

We watched the new Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince twice at different locations in the same day...

GV Gold Class Vivocity 12.30pm & The Cathy Citibank Screening 7.15pm.

We ordered the Gold Class set menu at $29 per person and ate until wanna faint.
Gold Class Set Menu includes:
Coffee/Tea, Starter, Main course & Dessert!!~
We had English Breakfast tea, Mushroom soup, Chicken Wings w Wedges & Blue Berry cheesecake. Super super yummy yums!
The Chicken wings are getting from bad to worse.. super undercooked. But the Mushroom soup and blueberry cheesecake is super super yummy! I am super craving for it again!
Anyway I told her that she spoils me so much by bringing me to Gold Class to watch so many times, now I don't wanna go normal cinemas and watch anymore! Shall wait for the movies to go on cable before watching them.. and only save up to watch Gold Class for movies that I really really like. :)

Afterwards we took train down and walked over to The Cathy, stopping by 1Caramel for cakes and coffee.

Wany loves the fridge!

3 cakes + 1 cafe latte + 1 ice mocha = S$40++!!Super expensive and super not worth it, cos the cake were either too soggy or too creamy. Nice decor and ambience though.. that's all you are paying for.

We walked over to The Cathy and watched Harry Potter again, and since it's the second time around.. we tried to point out as many "mistakes" that we can. Loopholes and scenes which they cut out.. WHICH IS A LOT!

Anyway I can't wait to watch BRUNO!

Austrain gay guy in America. Gotta be damn fucking funny. Anyway Wany never watched BORAT before. Omg. It's like one of the Top 10 most funny movies ever. Must go buy the DVD and force her to watch. LOL!

Make-up never melt after one whole day! I heart Laura Mercier products. Many thanks to Tabby for introducing me to this wonderful make-up brand! :D

Nice pink top with braiding details bought in Padini Authentics, KL at RM55 = S$22.70 :)

My outfit today is all pinkified. I wore my pink shirt, pink sandals, pink bag, pink camera! :D Cos it's Wany's fave colour and mine of course. Haha.

Btw, i tried on this dress in Warehouse. It's $133, super expensive, and a bit tight at the chest area.. but it's super sweet and nice. :(

Would like to thank Wany for accompanying me the whole day and treating me to watch Harry Potter twice. Hahahaha.

There are so many reasons why I adore GV Gold Class!
  1. Priority Queue with red carpet
  2. Special lounge to wait in so you need not mingle with "commoners"
  3. Ushers that bring you to your seat
  4. Order main courses from the Menu (Yummy mushroom soup!)
  5. Posh toilets (but only 2 cubicles)
and many many more.

 But mainly I like the exclusivity of being "Gold Class".

As expected.. 90% of the theater is filled with Ang Mohs drinking champange and wine.. guess they are the only recession-proof people in Singapore after all...

Overall, the movie was good. I may say 3.5 stars out of 5. It's not perfect cos the plot is a bit sketchy and at some parts it doesn't mesh well together.. like suddenly jump to another scene/storybit and you'll go "huh?".
But the graphics were way cool. And there were a few new additional of robots, both good and bad. So it is very very nice. I love the transforming part!

I guess Wany must have enjoyed the movie too.

At some parts I was laughing out loud, but everyone kept quiet. Maybe my brand of humour is different from other people? Cos when they were laughing, i just kept quiet... or maybe i catch the jokes faster than them?
oh wells.

Don't we just look like tai tais...?

After movie we did our usual tradition of taking pictures with upcoming movie posters that we would like to watch!

Old man with big fat nose!

Wany covering Harry Potter's face cos she says he look uglier and uglier.

Are you short enough for your cheapo parents to bring you in for free?

After the movie we went to Marks & Spencer to look at clothes... saw these hot orange and bright red pants and asked Wany if they were nice...

We took some clothes to try, and she says I look like my mother when I wear flowery clothes cos my mum loves such clothes. EEK! I dun wanna look like her!

TMIS = Tourism Management Institute of Singapore
CSP = Certified Service Professional

Today is our graduation day after 5 days of intensive training!

See? We are all super happy people!

We made the graduation hats ourselves using tape and construction paper. Super creative!

Team Champion
This is my team of 7 members including me, and I thought up of the name cos "We are the Champions!" and "We will rock u!"

A bit lame la.. but it sticks. Haha.

We also celebrated the teacher's birthday! Her name is Sue Wong and she is super nice and sweet.

I had the idea asking everyone to chip in $2 each (total 27 students) to buy her a cake to celebrate and buying her a big card and taking pictures of the 4 teams and printing them out and asking everyone to write something on the card..

Super nice right?

"I am so smart, I scare myself!"

I even took a pic of her and pasted it in.. hahaa!! I gave her a Pashmina scarf I bought in Turkey and a nice keychain that says: "No 1 Lecturer!".

We have special duties like Service Hosts and Banquet Team.

Service Hosts : Have to decorate classroom, prepare something special to welcome the class
Banquet Team : Have to serve school-provided food to classmates, and if possible bring additional food!

We have 2 breaks each day, 10.30am is the morning break and 3pm is the afternoon break. So there are 2 different banquet teams each day.

Each team will have a chance to do something, and all of us enjoyed it very much!

Today during PM break there wasn't any food provided so we had to bring our own. My clever colleague, Ms Khamisah suggested collecting $7 from each person to cater for a high tea!

$7 for 7 dishes is damn cheap. And the food is damn good... yums.

After the high tea, it's Party time!

We had performances from different groups, song recitals.. and my favourite is the lap dance by one of my colleague, Nielson!

I laughed until I collasped on the floor!

My teacher laughed until cried and she had a stitch!! HAHAHA!!

After the party was the Award Ceremony for the certificates and the giving out of two special prizes; Best Learner Award & Most Promising Award. The whole class have to vote, survivor style, by writing on a small piece of paper, the name of the person they would like to nominate for the award.


Super happy can? I shall go sleep cos I am super exhausted from the laughing, speech-making and skits.
