On my looooong flight from LA to Beijing, I saw a Taiwanese movie called "愛LOVE" starring Vicki Zhao, Ethan Ruan, Mark Chao... I am usually not a super chickie flickie kinda person, but this movie was a lot of fun to watch and really heart warming. Check it out when you get a chance :) Below is the Chinese character for love, I like that the character for heart (心) is in the middle. Aw.

Thanks J for being the best party organizer. Dinner at Palm Beach Restaurant was so much fun. Where else can we wine and dine surrounded by the Merlion, the over the top Marina Sands Hotel and Singapore's beautiful skyline.

Well, almost. You see, on my last day in Singy, F and I went to the Lau Pa Sat Hawker Centre which is btw, a must go place, not just for food but also the splendid architecture. Anyhoo, luckily for us, we scored a table in the center of the crowded food court. While I was munching on my roasted duck meat, and F savoring her fried kimchi rice, suddenly a group of youngsters started to do the Gangnam Style right in front of us. I was like, WTH, I wanna do the pony dance too! So I ran in front and the chick with her back to the camera is me. Ok ok, it's not me, I seriously thought about joining the flash mob, but couldn't part ways with my roasted duck, not even for thirty seconds :P Here is the video I put on Youtube, maybe I'll get gazillion views too. The Lau Pa Sat Centre is the oldest ironcast structure still standing in Southeast Asia. Really quite impressive.

As we all know, Singapore has a reputation of being an uber anal, gum hating, city state. Well, it could not be more untrue. I arrived here a few days ago and have been having the time of my life, or more accurately, my tummy has been having the time of its life :-) Heck, even if they throw me in a gulag or spank my tushy for chewing gum, I couldn't care less... I'd happily give up my freedom for the good food :-P Here is me and the Merlion, Singapore's mascot. Maybe I should convince them to install a Mercat?
