Elephant Parade Mission! - Half Accomplished!

A week ago, Maria called me up and told me if I wanted to go on a trip to search for elephants around Singapore. Have you seen the elephant statues around Orchard? Very good example is the one at Somerset 313.

I'm 100% sure you have seen this the outside of 313.


More about this exhibition, elephants are placed around in Singapore, most of them are in Orchard, 25 are in Singapore Zoo and a few are at Vivocity. Each elephant statues has it's own meaning and a special name and of cos each with a very unique design. So you are probably thinking what are they going to do with the elephants after this certain event. They are gonna auction it and place it somewhere after that.


( This is only valid for lazy people that don't want to read my blog and you can watch this video instead ) - Part 1 only...
SO IF YOU ARE WAITING FOR PART 2 THEN TOO BAD! :D You will just have to read my blog for the full details.

So Maria & my goal was to find all of the elephant statues and take photos with each and every one of them. At first, she told me that this is going to be some crazy attempt, I was like why not try it out? But as what the title has said, it is half accomplished because we can't possibly finish it in one day so our goal was to take as many as we can. There are a total of 100+ elephants btw!

As for my usual routine, I met Maria at City Hall, because I promise to go eat with her at a buffet restaurant. Supposed to meet her at 1130. She came at 12pm and for the first time I was not LATE. You know how happy can I be? :D

Lunch-ed at Kuishin-Bo buffet restaurant. The meal cost me a bombed but it's worth it for all the raw salmon you can eat.
heeheheh I love Japanese foood! (L)
Maria's plate is like all so organized la!!
Udon soup. uhmmmmmm so yummy!!
Crab meat coleslaw. WAHH DAMN NICE SIA...
Hahahaha this is fried potato.
Teriyaki sauce with Salmon

LOL, I was quite lazy to take photos so I only took a few. I like had massive rounds of raw salmon. Keep eating nonstop. LOL.
Aiyo, look at her tummy!? Hahahah so bloated!
TROLOLOLOL, mine was none the less better. Oh wait! I always have a fat tummy.

If would have been a better idea, if we took a before and after shot HAHAHA

After lunch, we decided to visit the zoo first. (Actually I was rather excited to look for animals then the elephant statues ) Okay confession made. Please don't come and attack me, MARIAA!
We finally made it to the Zoo!! Despite the long transportation after sitting in the bus. My butt pain.

My experience at KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar (Bukit Timah)

A cozy cafe located along the streets of Bukit Timah, a walkable distance from Tan Kah Kee MRT Station. KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar is no stranger in the neighbourhood as they have been around quite some time. The cafe primary focuses on serving Los Angeles-inspired “all-day dining” food and healthy eats such as yogurt. You may wish to know that the cafe is under the popular yogurt chain, Sogurt. Recently, I was invited by the cafe to try out their newly introduced items on the menu which is inspired by a Cali-Asian theme. 

Ambience: 7.5/10 
Cozy environment to relax and chill with your friends after school. The fixtures are decorated with a nature-inspired theme. 
Tropical Smoothies

I wanted to go for the standard coffee/tea, however decided to go with a smoothie instead. To my surprise, it was refreshing and yummy. I really enjoyed my tropical peach mango smoothie as the drink was well-balance and not too sweet.

My internship in Japan (Niigata)

If you haven't read my previous blogposts about my overseas industrial attachment at Japan you can click on the links below:''

Working in Japan is one of my greatest experience so far! The people there are so nice to communicate too and they are not only patient but very kind too. Despite the communication barrier, we were still able to translate our body language to talk to each other. The only funny thing is when we have to use Google Translate to talk to each other. Above is a picture of a huge tentage that my colleague and I built. Do note that everything including the tent sheets are made from scratch! 

I was attached to a logistics company during my internship period! The company has many years of experience in the industry thus I learnt plenty of things about administration & practical work. Japanese are very passion…
