This Is The New Year, A New Beginning

It's rather shocking to believe that it is already 2014 and scary that the number is increasing every year, it's somehow like yesterday was only 2008 when I first started this blog as a personal diary. In a blink of an eye, it's already freaking SIX YEARS that passed by. Moreover, I'm becoming more practical now in doing work, because every time is about contributing your own efforts and achieving your dreams. For this 2014, I'm going to be just a little low down compared to last year because this year is rather a intense year compared to last year. My work is going to be doubled and I need to get the hang of the new changes. I also realized that I have been delaying my weight management for YEARS, and My initial plan for now is to lose weight before I enlist into the army and not after. I need to pick up a more healthy and dieting lifestyle from this year before I really break the record for exceeding the scale.  Furthermore, I do wish that I will continue to strive for excellent grades and it is really very hard for me to maintain because it's like sending yourself to war and you are shielding yourself until the war ends.

My 2014 Resolutions:
  1. To lose 20KG by end of this year! (I'm actually not going to focus on dieting because I'm still a foodie and I want to continue blogging about food, so it's gonna be intense exercising for me.)
  2. To get the driving license! (Update: I passed my BTT lol! Going to apply for FTT soon)
  3. Maintain my grades! 
  4. Be more committed to church activities 
  5. Stay healthy, advocate a more healthy living lifestyle
  6. To cut down on dyeing chemical stuff onto my hair (I've had enough of it for the entire year previously) 
  7. Hopefully to be able to explore and meet new friends! (You also know that friends come and go, and always uncertain who is going to break off your friendship with you.) 
  8. Lastly, to stay happy!

Orh Nee,Yam Cake from Buttertrade

Ever since when I was little boy, whenever I attend a wedding dinner, the food item that I always anticipate the most has got to be the orh nee dessert. I mean who doesn't loves yam! So creamy yet sweet! Sometimes I wish I can find them at dessert stalls but you can rarely find them nowadays. Recently, I was greeted with an orh nee cake right at my door step thanks to Buttertrade

The cake is from Bloomsbury Bakers delivered by Buttertrade.

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: http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/09/exploring-niigata-japan-kite-museum.html http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/08/my-trip-to-japan-niigata-day-1.html''

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…

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 
(Left, Tropical Peach Mango; Right, Chai Avocado Shake), SGD$8.20 
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.
