2015


First and foremost;
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!! 

Honestly, I have to admit that 2014 was one of the best years ever, I was given ample opportunities to venture and try new things that I always wanted to attempt. Let's begin from school, as you guys know in mid-June of 2014, my team won the marketing innovation programme competition organised by North East. I am really thankful for the sponsorship of funds to run our marketing campaigns as it was our first time handling a real client. Working in a team does have it's ups and downs and I have learnt tons of new things. Learning does not rely on books but also practical learning. My team was even mentioned in Wanbao newspaper!! I'm sure, we did the school proud but lastly, I would like to thank my corporative team members that have always been by my side because I couldn't have done it without them. The increase in my blog exposure was a huge stepping stone as I joined Cineleisure Next Online Sensation 2014 and came in 2nd runner up last year. Never in my life, I would dream to have my own poster being placed at the entrance of Cathay Cineleisure Orchard. My friends started texting and whstapping me saying that they saw my poster and it was really life-sized!!! I will forever be grateful for the opportunities that God has given me. 

2015? 

I will raise my expectations for this year. I will be proceeding to a local polytechnic this year, and I'm intending to apply into SP or TP! May new beginnings bring me new friends and more skills to learn. Personally, I have set a goal to relearn my Chinese (looking back, I wished I would have studied more in my Secondary School days). Hopefully by the end of this year, I will be able to read a whole passage of a story. Secretly, I have been practicing my Chinese by singing karaoke with my friends and also watching Taiwanese drama shows! As of now, I'm making a good progress and I will continue to work harder. As for my blog, this year will be a reflection year for me. Looking back at the past few years, I must say; I'm proud of myself. I will continue to keep this blog lively and also updated! So be sure to look out for more!

My experience at Gills N Shells (Lavender)

I was invited for a food tasting session at Gills N Shells not long ago to try out their new dishes. Gills N Shells is a restaurant/drinking place that is inspired by the ocean. The restaurant specialises in seafood, thus they offer a vary of seafood dishes. They are dedicated to serve quality food with the best quality. Gills N Shells is easily accessible as they are located just behind Hotel Boss facing the river. The nearest train station is at Lavender MRT Station, thus it will only take a 5 minutes walk to get to this restaurant.

Gills N Shells recently launched their seafood platter served in a dim sum basket. As mentioned, there is a variety of seafood choices you can select from. However, there is a minimum order of three seafood choices. If you are an adventurous person or you can eat a lot, you may wish to order the All-in-A Basket Special. It comes along with all the seafood listed in the menu.

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…
