[Random] Genting videos


Went to church today, First International Baptist Church. Forgot to take photos! But will have other chances to I hope. Service was a bit short, but enjoyed the sermon. They are going to Portugal for a women's conference in April...maybe can go - sounds interesting! We'll see I guess. A whole gang of us went together today - about 8 of us! Mostly from Singapore, one from Shanghai and the other from HongKong.

Had dinner over at Jiamin's place today! Most wonderful Italian hospitality. We offered to cook for them Asian food...hope we don't disappoint them with our horrible cooking :|

Marco at work in the kitchen

Romina & her Danish friend, Michelle dishing out and mucking about :) Michelle can speak 6 languages!! And really well too.

The wonderfully laid out table for a sumptuous dinner :)

Pasta Bottarga!

Pork neck stuffed with spinach. The meat was so good, tender and yet not too porky. The Italians really know how to appreciate their food! We soaked up the leftover sauce (which they whipped up from scratch) on our plate with his home-made bread. Yes, HOME-MADE. Hmmmm...reminds me of the bread at Zambucca godma! :) We were really so blessed to be welcomed by them with such a nice dinner. They had Romina's Danish friend, and Marco's colleague from work over for dinner! Yes, his colleague! The only 2 chefs in his restaurant at our dinner, having such a wonderful spread before us. This is probably the best meal I'm gonna have for these 5-6months :| While I was eating, I thought to myself I better enjoy it while I can! :p

First few days in Copenhagen

thanks to those who came but I didn't take a picture with :| much appreciated! :)


Spas ultimate friends...busy photo-taking at the airport without us! haha - will miss you guys ;)

Being brought around CBS (Copenhagen Business School) campus by our exchange buddies - they were extremely helpful! Mine was waiting to pick me and my heavy luggage at the arrival gate :)

My S$3 meal at CBS cafeteria :|

Jiamin's full S$20 meal! *pengsan*

Met Jiamin's apartment-mates; Romina and Marco from Italy. They're extremely nice and hospitable! Really enjoy their company...and Marco is a chef! They invited us to join them for dinner tmr night...mmmm ;)

Getting Jiamin's bike fixed

My bike! Wheels are tiny though :| Takes twice the effort to cycle...see most of the tall Danish long-legged people whiz past me on the left lane. Here they even have traffic lights and special bicycle lanes for cyclists! Apparently more people cycle than drive. Tiring as it is, hope I can keep up the cycling! :)

A street in Copenhagen City. I think this is Old King's Way, the old castle where they used to use it as a summer palace for the royal family in the summer in the 18th century. Will double check that bit of info again!

Random: a stuff toy strapped into a car seat.
The kids here are ultra cute...so bundled and...helpless haha.

Accompanied J-man (that's how everyone pronounces his name now) for his first training - and they are super skilled. Very big sized, quick throws and powerful overheads :| gulp.
