jbjbjbJB!

on my final outing over the long vesak day weekend, the cell went to JB!

on the way to Kranji, a face poked out from the other mrt carriage from which aileen and i was at.

'hey i recognize that pixie face! it's ingrid!'

yeah, we were all late. haha. while waiting for candice to arrive, we were all wondering what she would be wearing, coz we all dressed down deliberately so as to attract less attention.

then an Audi stops right at the curb of the bus-stop, and out steps candice in all her chiffon and tights, and handbag.

kau. all our attempts to try and look nondescript has been singlehandedly thrown to the ground and crushed by a Birkenstock slipper (in gold, no less).

...

anyways, we managed to hit JB in less than an hour? coz the checkpoints were pretty deserted and we had our fast-pass brand spanking new passports! *ZIP*ZIP* on to city square!

the walk there was HORRENDOUS. the sun was positively beating down on us and there was all that concrete and no shelter. candice and i sighed with relief in unison when we thought we'd turned into the air-conditioned corridor of city square...

only to groan when we realized we had another corridor to go. hahahaha.

once we hit city square, we had a schedule.

1. book ktv first
2. eat breakfast upstairs
3. find a good place for pedicures
4. go for KTV
5. go for pedicure

here're the pictures!

all the sad chinese songs are making aileen weepy.

ok, i can skip elaborating on the above activities, but this i CANNOT.

i proclaim: THIS IS MY FIRST EVER PEDICURE. I AM A PEDICURE/MANICURE NOOB. i just don't see the point of paying for pedi/mani-s in singapore coz it's so expensive! and the results are only for a week man, after that everything just gets raggedy. eeyur, waste money.

but apparently it's cheaper in JB (according to grid) and hey, i really don't mind some feet-care anytime.

being a noob, i was all wide-eyed wonder and asking SO MANY QUESTIONS (what's this? what's that? oh, oh! what's that for?? waaah, that's nice... OH OH OH etc) and when i whipped out my camera my pedicurist was really shy and giggly, which made two of us.

grid and candice just rolled their eyes and opened up their magazines while i kept peering into solutions, nail polish bottles, cam whoring, and being curious about EVERYTHING.
