Wicked in Singapore




I’m limited:
Just look at me – I’m limited
And just look at you –
You can do all I couldn’t do, Glinda
So now it’s up to you
(spoken) For both of us
(sung) Now it’s up to you:

I’ve heard it said 
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow 
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you:

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You’ll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend:
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you:

Because I knew you:

BOTHI have been changed for good

And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I’ve done you blame me for

But then, I guess we know
There’s blame to share

And none of it seems to matter anymore

Like a comet pulled Like a ship blown
From orbit as it Off it’s mooring
Passes a sun, like By a wind off the
A stream that meets Sea, like a seed
A boulder, half-way Dropped by a 
Through the wood Bird in the wood

Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
I do believe I have been changed for the better?

And because I knew you:
Because I knew you:

Because I knew you:
I have been changed for good.

Happy AuGHOST Month!

August is the Happy Ghost Month for the Chinese. It is the time of the year where food offerings, fresh and burnt; ‘hell bank’ money, paper cellphones, and whatever gift possible line up the streets of Singapore to commemorate (?) this month.

According to my Chinese colleague, this is the month when the gates of hell are opened and the ‘ghosts’ are set free and head out for a month of vacation. Living individuals are compelled encouraged to offer food, money, or things the ghost might need to enjoy his month’s VL or else..

Likewise, you are not allowed to say anything nasty or you’re..

This burning ritual photo was taken just now at our office parking lot.



Since I’m not Chinese, August for me is HAPPY GAIL MONTH! Yeah!

Wine and Dine Singapore: Stellar @ 1-Altitude

Location: 1 Raffles Place, 62F

It’s my sister Glai’s nth birthday and we found yet another reason to indulge!

We come from a family who has an aptitude for high altitude dining , hence, we opted to celebrate her first birthday in Singapore at one of the country’s city-overlooking places, Stellar @ 1-Altitude.  Despite the rants and raves I’ve seen in several blogs, our dining experience at Stellar gave us a new set of good memories. The food was great, service was great, and probably the only thing that needed improvement was the loo. Price is on the high-side but the overall experience is worth every ‘singy’ and all the inevitable calories.

What we had:

/Top left: Twice Baked Gruyere Souffle with Blue Cheese Dressing

Top Right: Pan-fried Foie Gras with Rhubarb and Cherry pickle

Bottom: Slow-cooked veal with Kurobuta Pork/

/Top Left: Polenta Cushion with Four Cheeses and Field Mushroom

Right: Chocolate Seduction – 100 points for the Hazelnut Mousse! Almond Lava cake is a bit crusty and no lava at all :,(

Bottom left: CHEERS! (Our first of the 3 bottles atop the Singapore CBD /

/Birthday girl (on the right) all smiles after receiving a surprise from our beloved SG friends and a visit from dear SE friends./
