Minions Madness with McDonald!

First it was the Hello Kitty craze and now the minions?!

I must say the people at McDonald’s are really good at marketing. Totally a good move releasing the minion toys shortly after Despicable Me 2 is released in cinemas. So each week, 3 different Minions are released. Each comes free with every set of Happy Meal purchased.

Headed down to McDonalds earlier on to get my minions (Who doesn’t love the adorable minions? ;) ) but guess what?!

NO MORE MINIONS!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Can’t believe it’s fully redeemed already when it was just released yesterday. Didn’t expect the response for the minion toys to be so overwhelming. Well, the only consolation this time round is that you can still purchase the minions under the Deferred Fulfilment site although the Minions are fully redeemed for now. No need for long queues cause you’ll still get your full minions set eventually (in December if you order through their website).

I guess I’ll be purchasing some of my minions from the website…Not too sure if I’m gonna collect all the minions yet. Kinda sick of food from McDonalds having ate it religiously during that 4 weeks just so that I’ll have the complete Hello Kitty set. And yes, I’m well aware that fast food is never a healthy option…

Someone onced told me “Fast Food=Fast Die”. I don’t want to die just yet. :X

Update 18/7/13:

Stuart!

Stuart lights up when he’s about to grab something.

Quality of toy is kinda cheap. Stuart wasn’t painted properly

Paint was all over Stuart

Just found out today that you can actually donate your meal to MINDS if you are not intending to consume them. So, if you’re buying the meal just for the toy, do consider donating your meal instead of throwing them away!

Donate your McDonald meal from now till 31st July!

McDonald’s Hello kitty Fairy Tales Collection!

[30th May 2013 - Delayed Post]

McDonald recently released Hello kitty plush toys again! But this time, the kitties are dressed like fairy tale characters such as Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz, Little Red Riding Hood, The Frog Prince & The Ugly Duckling. There are 2 more characters, The Singing Bone and the Witch. The latter can only be obtained through McDelivery.

Not a mega huge fan of Hello Kitty but I love reading Fairy tales when I was little so naturally I was attracted to these Hello Kitty Fairytale Collection!

Got up real early on the morning of 30th May (the day McDonald start releasing the first kitty for sale) for the usual morning run before heading to the nearest 24 hour McDonald in the vicinity to have breakfast. Or should I say, to get my hands on the Hello kitty to be exact. Breakfast was just an excuse. Haha:P And so, I bought my Cowardly Lion from the Wizard Of Oz at 5am in the morning. Woohoooo~! I supposed I was that particular outlet’s first customer to get their first Hello kitty off the counter. Kiasu indeed. I’m judging myself already haha. Oh well, I feel that it’s okay to be a little kiasu in this case. There are so many Hello Kitty fans out there, any slower and you might just miss your chance of purchasing one.

With Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz!

A new Hello Kitty character is released each week and it cost $4.60 with the purchase of any Extra value meal. A little pricey considering the fact that the Hello Kitty plush toys are mass manufactured.

Mcdonald Hello Kitty Fairytales Series 2013- Wizard of Oz

Totally love how they package the Hello kitty plush toys to make it look like a book this time round! The previous Hello Kitty collection did not come in a box.

Cowardly Lion Hello Kitty

Once upon a time…

Just a little disappointed that Singapore ain’t releasing the limited edition Wisdom Owl Hello kitty that Hong Kong’s McDonald had released last year.

For those who didn’t managed to get your hands on one of the kitties, you can actually check out McDonald’s Hello Kitty Plushies Tracker to see which outlet still has stock for the particular kitty released!

[P.s. I have an extra Ugly Duckling kitty (Brand new & unopened) for sale. Bought it for my friend but turns out she got one for herself already:/ If you're interested, leave a comment below with your contact details & I'll get in touch with you soonest possible:)] Sold!

Update: 27/6/13

Singing Bone Hello Kitty!!! Delighted I managed to get my hands on this! :D :D :D

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The queue for the Singing Bone kitty started very early and by the time my cousin & I reached that outlet to join the queue, there were already approximately 100+ people in front of us. This time they gave out coupons (without this, you wouldn’t be able to buy the kitties even if you’ve been queueing for the past few hours) to those in the queue. Each buyer is entitled to purchase a max. of 4 kitties with the coupon. We were SO lucky to be one of the last few to get the coupon! There was a long line of people behind us and some were mad pissed when they failed to get the coupon.

Kitty Coupon

Signs were put up soon as soon as the coupons were given out.

Look at the number of people queuing!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So glad that I managed to collect the main 5 characters! The only one missing is the witch kitty from McDelivery. My Collection would have been more complete with the witch kitty…

Nook-DIY House of pancakes

[22/3/13 - Delayed post]
Haven’t been updating much recently and I finally found time to do so, so you’ll probably see quite a few backdated posts.

Dinner last night (22/2/13) was pancakes from Nook. Was pretty excited when my friends made an impromtu decision to eat there because I loveee DIY stuff (Check out my DIY Fun page).

Nook- House of pancakes!

We ordered 2 DIY sets for the 3 of us because the menu suggest that 1 DIY set only serves 2.

Chocolate, Original butermilk, Banana & Srawberry batter with 6 toppings

Menu

We were given a short briefing as to how to use their equipments and how to tell when our pancakes are cooked and we’re on our own…

Our virgin attempt at cooking our DIY pancakes

Failed attempt at turning the pancakes over

Second attempt at name writing with the pancake batter.

Satisfied with the second atempt at name writing, we decided to proceed on to “draw” other stuff. Here are some of our masterpieces:)

Maggots infested flower? Haha

Happy face

Butterfly

Little chick. Kinda failed…

Flower

Couple <3

“Gingerbread” girl

Say cheeseee!

This was supposed to look like a Craftholic bear but…

Lollipop

Pancake with marshmallows.

Won’t say what is this but…you can guess:)

Oh! Before we started, we were told that Nook is holding a pancake drawing competition. So, we decided to be creative. Hehehe :P

Our bikini babe got heads turning that night haha

Unfortunately, the heat went off suddenly and left our bikini babe looking like she has some skin problem

Bikini Bake turned Prata babe…
When the staff managed to turn on the heat again, it was a tad too strong..

We ordered a Chocolate milkshake, Oreo milkshake & Strawberry milkshake each. Each cost $5.90. Don’t feel that the size of the glass it came in do justice to its price. The Oreo and Chocolate milkshakes were pretty normal, nothing special about them but we thought the Strawberry milkshake was pretty unique.

Chocolate milkshake, Oreo milkshake & Strawberry milkshake

Too tired to come up with more designs…

Simplicity is still the best

Granted that drawing with pancake batter was fun but after the initial fun and excitement wears off, we were struggling to finish the the remaining batter. Everything tasted the same after a while. I guess we probably won’t be eating pancakes for the time being in the months to come.

Bene Spaghetti

I chanced upon Bene Spaghetti while I was googling for a place to dine at. There weren’t many reviews available on the Internet for this restauant but majority of those that had been there thought it was good so I decided to give it a shot.

Went there with a friend on the 8th of February.  I called the restaurant 3 days before the 8th (you need to call at least 3 days in advance if you wanna make a reservation) to make a reservation for a table of 2 because I was afraid that the wait will be long as it was the eve of the eve of the Chinese New Year and also because we went during the peak hour.

The place was surprisingly empty when we arrived and it remained somewhat the same throughout our stay there. Only 3 tables (including ours) were filled up. Might be due to the heavy rain that day.

A black board with a little message from the staff. How thoughtful :)

Oh, see that wooden thing on the left? That’s a clapper. All you need to do is shake that clapper and the the staff will serve you in a jiffy. Amusing I would say. :D

The staff gave us a frozen towel each the moment they sat us down. A gimmick but I love gimmicks so that’s a plus for the restaurant! Things were just starting to get interesting.

This was the green salad that came with the dinner set. Not a fan of salads but I must say the taste is pretty one of a kind. Not sure what kind of vegetables they used but it blended well with the dressing.

Avocado & Mozzarella with Basil Sauce
P.S. This is not included in the dinner set

Avocado pizza! Sound so eww right? I thought so too when my friend wanted to order that. But I was blown away by the burst of flavours when I sunk my teeth into the first piece. And that was when I knew my first piece won’t be my last. My new favourite! <3

The online reviews that I came across recommended their bestsellers, which is their Mushi Pasta so we ordered a Mushi pasta dinner set each. Mushi Pasta in short just means spaghetti steamed in a bell jar-shaped clay pot.

Mushi Pasta

Each side of the bell jar-shaped clay pot had a face

Our pasta was served shortly after our pizza was served. Wanted to find out if their pasta was as good as what the online reviews made it out to be the moment it was served but…

Timer. Another gimmick

The staff told us that we had to wait for 5 minutes for the pasta to steam. Having eaten pasta served straight up all the while, this was a new experience. Seeing the pasta being steamed right before my eyes and wanting to know how my pasta will turn out brought out the little kid in me. I was gushing with excitement!

So, 5 minutes was up and the timer started “screaming”. The staff immediately came to remove the cover.

Mushi Pasta- Smoked Pork with Blue Cheese Cream Sauce

It was totally worth the wait. The pasta did not disappoint! Absolutely love how their smoked pork turned out and I thought it complimented well with the Blue Cheese Cream sauce. Oishi!

Tiramisu

Tiramisu was served chilled upon request. You can choose to have it before or after your main. Didn’t really like their Tiramisu though…felt that something was missing.

Bamboo wine

All in all, it was really a good experience. :D The awesome food, great service and quirky gimmicks made dinner real interesting that night! Prices are quite resonable too.

Bene Spaghetti is located at 83 Circular Road, Singapore 049435.

Teachers’ Day 2012

Teachers’ Day is a day to show appreciation to the teachers for the efforts that they’ve put in. Celebrations are usually held just the day before the actual day here in Singapore and we get a day off on the actual day. However, because Teachers’ Day falls on the 7th of September this year (which is during our 1 week September holiday), we held the celebrations today.

Rather than just buying gifts like I did for every other year, I decided to do something different this year – create stuff out of duct tape! I totally enjoy crafts like this. You can check out my DIY Fun to see the other stuffs that I’ve made. =)

To cut the long story short…. These are the stuff that I made:

Duct tape flowers

Carrier I made purely out of duct tape for containing the gift. Recyclable and environmentally-friendly. =)

Carriers made out of duct tape.

Gifts mostly made from duct tape. Why buy real flowers when they wither so quickly? :P

Here’s a quote I think is worthy of sharing:

“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” -Henry Brooks Adams

Indeed, teachers are more than just teachers. They’re a friend, an advisor, an inspiration and the guiding light of our lives. They add meaning to our life and actions have the ability to create massive ripple effect.

Thank you to all teachers past and present who have taught me and here’s wishing all the teachers out there a very HAPPY TEACHERS’ DAY! :D

《老九》音乐剧[Lao jiu - The musical]

[Photo credit: The Theatre Practice]

Last Friday, I had the chance to watch a Chinese musical with my school. I did not know what to expect and was pretty excited/looking forward to it because I’ve never watched a musical in the Chinese Language before.

Programme booklet and entrance ticket

Lao Jiu the musical tells a down-to-earth tale of one boy who is caught in a dilemma in making a difficult choice between applying for a scholarship and pursuing his dreams. Born as the ninth child (And hence the name Lao Jiu - Lao Jiu means nine in Chinese) and only son in a family of eight girls and also being the brightest among his sisters, his family have high hopes on him. Lao Jiu did so well in his studies that he was invited to participate in an exam in which the prize is a scholarship to university should he do well. Attaining the scholarship will give his family a better life.

Lao Jiu is known to his family members as someone who loves exams/tests and quizzes and will always look forward for more. They believe that he’ll pass the exam with flying colours. However, what his family members do not know is that he secretly want to learn the dying art of finger puppetry that his uncle taught him when he was little and not go to university. In the end, he made the decision of giving the exam a miss in order to pursue his dream of carrying on the dying art of puppetry, much to his family’s dismay.

Lao Jiu is a musical in Chinese with English subtitles.

I thought the storyline was pretty easy to digest and will probably strike a chord with most audiences. The pace is good and the set, lighting and costumes are all very appealing. Even though there were 19 actors in total, they managed to coordinate and bring out each character really well with their superb singing and acting skills without you feeling that any character is overshadowed. What I enjoyed most during the musical are the catchy and melodious songs aside from the well thought out storyline. Everything from the storyline right down to the little details like the timing in which each actor enter the scene was perfect. The only fault I can find with this musical is the subtitles shown on the screen on both sides of the stage. The translation from Chinese to English wasn’t very accurate and I thought some meaning was lost in the process of translation. Also, the timing of the subtitles did not really match the actors’ speech at times.

Life isn’t a bed of roses and there will always be tough decisions to make at some point of our life. Watching this musical set me thinking:

What will I do if I’m caught in the same situation as Lao Jiu?

Will I pursue my dreams in a dying industry at the expense of a bright and well-planned future?

How far will I go to pursue my dreams?

Well, I don’t think I’ll make the same decision as Lao Jiu. It’s a fairly competitive society here in Singapore. Without a degree, you probably will not go far.  And my parents will likely react like how other Asian parents will, “I don’t think that’s a good idea… How will you survive in that industry?” It is not common for people to venture into the non-convential path and still attain success. Not many who go through that path will succeed without strong will power, sheer determination and lots of luck. But of course, there’re people who become successful despite dropping out of school to pursue their dreams.

I am not one who’ll give up on my education to pursue dreams, neither am I one who will give up on pursuing my dreams. I just think it’s more practical to complete my education first and pursue my dreams later. At least I’ll have something to fall back on should I fail in the process of pursuing my dreams. I thought Lao Jiu could have done the same too… Get the scholarship first and learn the art of puppetry later. It’ll be a win-win situation this way, will it not?

Racial Harmony Day

Every year on the 21st of July, schools in Singapore will commemorate this day in remembrance of the racial riots that occurred in 1964. This day allows students to celebrate Singapore as a harmonious multi-racial and multi-cultural society and promote inter-racial understanding among students. Just like every other year, we were encouraged to wear our traditional costumes or a costume from another race on this day. This year, I wore the Malay traditional costume – the Baju Kurung.

All dressed up in the different ethnic costumes.

Baju Kurung and Indian traditional costume. Anyone know the name for the Indian traditional costume?

I thought Racial Harmony Day is a very good way to serve as a reminder to fellow Singaporeans that harmony between the different races is very important. As Singapore is a multi-racial country, any minior discontent between the races might lead to problems that might result in similar outcomes as the 1964 racial riots. Thus, maintaining harmony between the different races is essential.

Commerating this day by encouraging students to wear their ethnic costumes allows us to find out more about the cultures of the different races. For one, I found out that there are many different versions and designs to the Malay traditional costume for women. Other than the Baju kurung that I wore, there is also the Kebaya. I also got to know more about the different festivals that the different races celebrate in-depth and the significance behind celebrating those festivals instead of just enjoying the public holidays given on those festivals.

However, I feel that maintaining racial harmony goes a long way than just reminding students to do so on Racial Harmony Day yearly. The little actions daily like making friends with people of different races, sparing a thought for others (For example by not eating at non-halal food eateries when eating out with Muslim friends), sharing cultural food with neighbours of other races during festivals or inviting them to join the fun during festivals will be more impactful in maintaining racial harmony in the long-run than just celebrating Racial Harmony once yearly.

I don’t think we live in a non colour blind world but trust me, we have loads more in common than we think we have. Do not be quick to judge one by their colour. For all you know, they may be the ones that will lend you a helping hand in times of crisis or become your best friend for many years to come. I have made many great friends of different races over the years and I am really grateful for the harmonious relationship we have between races in Singapore.

This is definitely a must-go for Potterheads but I thought it was too short an exhibition. It ended much faster than expected and I did not spend as much time in there as I did in other exhibitions that I went to previously. Nevertheless, it’s worth going as you’ll not only get to see authenic props used/worn by the actors from the movies, it’ll also bring back lotsa childhood memories if you grew up reading and watching Harry Potter. AND you’ll also be able to buy some cool items from the exhibition shop! :D Oh, I decided to make the Hogwarts express train tickets for my friends and myself to add to the Potter atmosphere. You can check ‘em out here!

You’ll walk into the exhibition’s shop straight after the Great Hall. The exhibition shop is built to resemble Diagon Alley (So cool right!).  Guess what? I spotted Hedwig at Diagon Alley! I decided to take a photo with her but Hedwig wasn’t very cooperative. Seems like she prefers spreading her wings and soaring in the air than cuddling.

Aww…Hedwig is so soft and fluffy~! :D [Photo Credit: Andrea]

These are the prices for some of the items sold at the exhibition shop:

Hogwarts crest hoodie (Black): $65 for children, $75 for adults

Here’s what I bought back from the exhibition. I wanted to get the hoodie too but they were only left with 2XLs sizes so the staff asked me to leave my contact behind. They’ll contact me once the sizes are restocked (The service is only available to local citizens)! Didn’t get the other stuff because they were exorbitantly overpriced. You can easily get some of them online for cheaper.

Photo of Hogwarts hoodie added on the 9th of June:

Got my Hogwarts hoodie from the Harry Potter exhibition already! Collected it from the Artscience museum on the 9th of June. :D

Here are the stuff I bought from the exhibition:

Magical items I bought from the Harry Potter exhibition

Was given a huge paper bag to keep the 3 packets of chocolate frogs and 3 boxes of Every flavour beans that I bought but who’s complaining! The paper bag is so pretty!

Chocolate frog:

Chocolate frog

Chocolate frog cards

Chocolate frog cards I got: Gilderoy Lockhart, Mr Olllivander & Donaghan Tremlett. Regretted not buying more chocolate frogs. I wanted Severus Snape’s chocolate frog card but I didn’t get it with the 3 chocolate frogs that I bought.

In case you’re wondering, there’re a total of 16+1 collectible chocolate frog cards in total: Albus Dumbledore, Madam Rolanda Hooch, Minerva mcGonagall, Ponama Sprout, Severus Snape, Rubeus Hagrid, Madame Pince, Mr. Ollivander, Gilderoy Lockhart, Voldemort, Filius Flitwick, Quirinus Quirell, The Potter family, Donaghan Tremlett, Osrino Thruston, Heathcote Barbary and a guest appearence by Myron Wagtail.

Bertie Botts’s Every Flavour Beans:

Bertie Botts’s Every Flavour Beans

Potterheads would definitely not want to give this a miss but it’s definitely not for the weak-hearted! I’ve tried Black pepper, earwax, dirt, grass and soap flavour so far and dirt is the worst so far! Felt so sick after eating the dirt flavour bean. Well, I wouldn’t spoil it for you by describing the flavour of each bean so try it yourself let let me know which you like best. Do look out for the vomit flavour bean though, It’s ………

Pretty disappointed that the packaging of the chocolate frogs and Every flavour beans are not the same as in the movies.

Photography is not allowed (You wouldn’t want to be stupified!) and I don’t have a pensive like Dumbledore’s to store this wonderful memory of this visit. So, if you’re intending to bring some of the magic back from the exhibition like I did, my suggestion is to check and compare the prices online first before going for the exhibition so that you won’t be left with a hole in your pocket. Some items can be bought online at a cheaper price BUT you may not be able to find some items online at all. So check and double-check! You wouldn’t want to leave the exhibition thinking that you’ll be able to buy X item you saw at the exhibiton online, only to find out much later that it’s not available online (or way more expensive).

Remember to bring enough Galleons because only Mastercard and Visa is accepted other than cash. NETS is not accepted.

Some of the exhibits can be found outside the Artscience museum so don’t forget to catch a glimpse of ‘em! This giant knight chess piece from Harry Potter and the Chamber of secrets can be found at just outside Sephora at The Shoppee:

This is just one of the 3 (look out for the Death eater and Dolores Umbridge attire one too).

Harry Potter™: The exhibition will be on at the Artscience museum at Marina Bay Sands from 2nd of June till 30th of September so hurry and get there (By the Knight Bus, Broomstick, Floo powder, Hogwarts express, Apparation or by any other way you can think of) before the Ministry of Magic brings them back to Hogwarts!
