11hrs in Orchard, Singapore
I had stopped working and currently am seriously considering which offers shall i take in order to secure, strengthen and establish my career. Hopefully i could start my new life next year. Anyway, i am going to spend my two weeks casually in Malaysia. I have so far decided to meet Waiseng and some bloggers up for Jalan Jalan, Cari Makan in KL. For those who are free to meet up in KL, please let me know as i so desperately wanna Escape (from my hometown), Explore and Experience KL. Let`s have a 3Es(Escape, Explore and Experience) KL one day trip.
Sun with Moon - Japanese Dining & Cafe.
Okay, back to the topic. Basically, it was a normal dating with two of my friends. But i take it as an opportunity to enjoy food with friends along with good conversation and more importantly is to take photo. Besides these reasons, i will be away Singapore for a while as i will be going back to my hometown and then heading to Hongkong and China for Christmas and New Year respectively.
June and Su Zhen.

FuFu`s Unagi Akari Kamameshi + Udon + Sashimi set lunch.
Once everything served, we started to snapshot the food as if we were the food journalist from XYZ Press. The three of us enjoyed the snapshot moment vey much, it`s been a while though, since Berry was in Singapore in July.

Sashimi - Salmon and Hotate.
We really took our time to slowly bite, truly taste the set lunch and our conversation was deeply absorbing as we didnt notice that we actually had madly spent two hours on our lunch. After a short toilet break, we continued our conversation while enjoying our hi-tea.
FuFu Milk Tea
Need to specially highlight and highly recommend was the dessert - Tofu Cheese Cake(SG$5.5) and Maccha Tiramisu(SG$6). A cheese cake lover shall not miss out the Tofu Cheese Cake if you visit the restaurant. A bit heartier than the common cheese cake, it did satisfy three of us. Maccha Tiramisu was another awesome dessert the restaurant has. It was made by high grade maccha with an excellent colour, aroma and depth of flavour. I enjoyed the delicate combination(maccha and cream) of smooth texture, creamy taste and good value.

It was the first time i heard and saw Tofu Cheese Cake.

Before we stepped out the restaurant.
Well, after that we decided to see a Tawainese movie - Cape No. 7 due to the bad weather(as we planned to go to the Botanic Garden). Once we had purchased the tickets we went window shopping along Orchard Road, photographing and dinner to kill the time until 7pm.
At Orchard Road.
Going up to HMV for some music.
Su Zhen, June and FuFu
Everyone knows that Christmas is around the corner~
*Ding, ding, ding*
After coming out from HMV, June requested me to had my sunglasses on.
What and how do you think?
Takashimaya has a gorgeous Christmas tree.
We had the same smile.
A veteran photographer took this picture.
The amateur FuFu took this.
Good photo needs good photographer and model.
The three of us.
Lunch was not that full but we need to enter the cinema by 7pm so we quickly had our early dinner at Cathay Plaza.
June`s Prawn Mee (Har Min).
Su Zhen had Yee Min.
FuFu`s Ban Min.
FuFu and June with the huge poster of Cape No. 7.
Cape No. 7 is a great movie. It really deserves to be the best selling Asian movie in the recent history of Taiwanese film industry. This romantic comedy, with its combination of characters reflecting the cultural and ethnic diversity of Taiwan, makes audiences laugh (especially FuFu who knows Hokkien, Mandarin, Hakka and Japanese) and cry in turn while delivering a universal message of tolerance.
After the movie, we back to Orchard Road again.
And we started to pose, snapshot...
Trying to be cool and cute?
Yeah, we are going to enter Mont Blanc.
Two models are promoting Canon and Fujifilm.
It is too early to say Merry Christmas.
So lovely taken by June.
Nikon and Fujifilm users.
Finally it`s their turn to stand at the middle.
Quickly i passed the camera to June. Ready 1,2,3~
No kidding, i personally love this photo.
This is the so called Girl-Girl Cold War.
This is the so called Boy-Girl Cold War.
This marks the happy and satisfying ending of the day.
We called it a day in Orchard at 11.02pm. Even though i reached home late (as i stayed way too far from town area), i enjoyed so much hanging out together with June and Su Zhen. We even plan to have such a day (lunch, photography, movie, conversation, etc) once a month in different place next year onwards. Hence, they would be the frequent faces here on my blog.
