Library and shopping center and food fun

I broke another shoe today. I give up. I guess I’m not fated to wear strappy shoes. They all die under my touch. I was walking on my way to work when the strap of my left shoe decided to break off. And I limped my way through the office. I had to use about ten rubber bands to fasten the bottom part to my feet.

Good grief!

I wondered how I would survive the day with such a fashionable footware. So during lunch break, I rushed off to the nearest shoe shop as fast as I could. Which wasn’t very fast since I could only limp with my rubber band shoes.

Then the strap of my right shoe decided to break off too. I must say, that, that was the first time I ever encountered rubber band shoes in my quarter of a century (plus one) years of existence.

Anyway, I got me a pair of flatties. I hope it’ll last me longer than any of my heels couldn’t.

Doesn’t this look interesting? I love the packaging of this. There is a man with a huge mouth. The mouth acts like a window to see the contents of the packaging. Bro loves poking the packet to make the content move around.

We went to Jurong East library since I saw a flyer that showcased digital designs by the Yusuf Ishak Secondary School students. I hoped that there were some workshops on the techniques. But upon reaching there, there was only a display. I was a little disappointed, but admired the wonderful work done by these talented teenagers.

I saw teenagers studying and I was amazed by the amount of graffiti on the chairs. It used to be pure beige the first time I saw it in mid 2004 and now it was covered with scribblings. Bro thinks that it was intentional.

We did a spot of reading and decided to have dinner at IMM and we walked past a carnival called “Generation Day” where the entire family, including the grandparents and grandchildren spent time together. The whole stretch along Jurong East Interchange was extremely crowded.

We then took the shuttle bus to IMM – the hypermart

I was amazed by the sheer amount of people there. Granted that I haven’t been there for a long while, but the place was bustling! I never imagined that the quiet shopping centre in the 90’s would turn out to be so active now.

After dinner, we walked around and chanced upon these many Osim Isqueeze about. I gave it a try and I quite like it.

There was a gathering over my aunt’s place on Sunday afternoon. Food galore! I love tapioca leaves with peanut sauce. Yum … I felt full and contented till dinner.

It seems that family gatherings are the time when it is obligatory to show off the babies,

Cute 🙂

Well, that’s all for the moment, I had better get to bed now for some snoozin .. Good night 🙂
