Burger King

we were at Zurich airport and Burger King sits at the very end hidden
prollie they imposed that all fast food outlet must be hidden
coz when u stepped into the airport, all u see were oysters and caviar bar
with champagne and all :P

and more gourmet outlet selling foie gras, more CAVIAR, chocolates, etc

by lookin at its needs at least 6 hours to dine here
coz everything must try :P
the portion are huge here....the burger is the size of my face
I think those in the States must be even bigger.....kekekekekek
yes that's the name on the menu

R&D staffs in Burger King must had been playing too much of ANGRY BIRDS
quite spicy and that's wat we wanted :)))))))))))))

Semi-home cooked food

oh yummy carpaccio of octopus with finely chopped chives
it was our very last nite at Basel and we have had enuff of dining outside every single nite
and decided it's time to eat at home finally
after all it's just the only 2 of us *hehehehehehe*
fresh salmon drizzled with extra virgin olive oil, some mini capers, pepper, lemon juice
aikkksss forgot bout dill....salmon and dill goes very well together T_T
made a simple salad of "I dunno wat leaves was tat" but it sure taste good
it's like LAMB lettuce but not like it...and obviously we can't read GERMAN, which was printed on its packaging *bleurgh*
topped it with more avocados and thinly sliced red radish
well the above was just only our starter......hehehehehehe
the first thing that got whammed into the oven were baby french potatoes, rosemary, french long onions, garlic....was so tempted to throw in some chilis to roast as well...kekekekekeke

oh yea Monkey was cooking in her Superman t-shirt :P
the kitchen was OK-ly equipped.....with cooker and oven
only thing missing was coffee machine and thus I had to make do with instant cappucino in packs
pan seared pork rib and later whammed into the oven
the other piece was the shoulder blade....
bought 2 different cuts to have different taste and fat content :P
well obviously my knife skill isn't fantastic unlike a certain Doctor
haiya afterall gonna end up in our tummy.....

since we had to finish everything in the fridge before we leave..
the roasted tomatoes on the vine were leftover from breakfast :P
our dinner!!! VOILA!!!!!

after saying our prayers.....yes we do say prayers....
thanking our Boss cum Owner for this meal and for having us in Switzerland

JP Morgan Corporate Challenge 2011

so the story begin when our dearie MD decided to do this as a TEAM
T_T aiyo~~~~~~~

Baby Wei's BIB 3466
and all BIB contain some sort of chip or barcode to detect participants
also for registration purpose
so at 5pm sharp about 13,233 participants congregated at the esplanade
where the starting point is
major roads nearby were closed for this event, so our cab couldn't get thru and we had to walked

as we were walking lazily towards the kilometres long starting line we saw kiasu ppl warming up
running up and down, stretching, star-jump, hopping and meditating~~~~
flexing their body, and runnin-on-spot in such ferocious speed that smoke came outta their shoes

Mommy Jacky, Monkey, Baby Wei and Alex da Ah Beng popping out of nowhere
yes u can see we were way way way way at the back.......even on the starting line
*my BIB was 3469 and I forgot to buy 4D*

and why oh why didn't it rain?????
but thank gawd it wasn't sunny and there was some breeze coming fr the sea
after waiting for more than an hour....we only get to 6.20pm
coz they have dragon dance and list of sponsors to thank for

there were only 15 of us in our team as compared to other financial institution and telcos, we were like an ANT team :P

most came decked in their corporate logos, corporate colours,
flashing their tech gears on their it for measuring heartbeat or number of steps they've took
or just an ipod playing their fav music...

as for us...we got our lovely lips to entertain us.......with nuisance and bitching session...
Monkey just complained all the way thru....arghhhhhhh
everyone were running so fast
I felt like an underpowered cc car on the road with the Ferraris and Lambos zooming past me left and right.....vrrommm vrrrommm vrrrommmm

think I was a hazard on the road for being so slow...coz those participants kept beeping me..
"excuse me....excuse me..."
think less than 5 minutes we were heading to Marina Bay Sands
and again I was right at the back......huffing and puffing like grandma
Alex da Ah Beng: "Stop taking pic and start running!!!!!!"
and so I let them ran past joining all the mean machines of Ferraris and Lambos
Scooby Doo~~~~~
dunno which company was this but managed to snap these bunch of angmohs in their cute suit
I felt like pulling their tail!!!!!! kekekekkekeke
the female scooby doo has got a headband with a bow on it!!!!! I like!!!!!!
can I be part of your team? u can call me scrabby doo????

later we were underneath the Singapore Flyer
time to start Operation X
Operation X = run to Medics Marquee

can u believe it...once we reached the 1.6km mark which was the medics marquee
and also the finishing line....
*oh well they have to continue on for a few more km before u-turning back to this point*
there were already RUNNERS CROSSING the finishing line
splashing themselves with cold water and downing 100 plus
-_-" are these human or wat?
we did 1.6km and they've done 5.6km????

as we sat thru for the next hour waiting for our TEAM member to cross the line
we saw so many casualties at the medics marquee....
I think due to the number of participants, accidents can't be prevented...
ppl falling on the road/pavement hurting themselves, from the ankles to the arm to FINGERS!!!!!!
it was a bloody scene at the Medics Marquee...
an hour past.....and more participants crossed the finish line
non of our team members made it yet...
the sun set....and my heart skipped longing to be at the Flyer
my stomach growling fr hunger coz I did 1.6km!!!!!! hahahahahha
my sensitive nose twitched with all the sweat + BO comin fr all the angmohs participants

later the team member came gushing one by one at the finish line
all RED and SWEATY and panting for breathe...and swore never ever again

MD: "No gals.....I've registered all of you for Great Eastern Run this July!!! pls come prepared coz it's a 10km run"
Monkey faints~~~~~~~
Singapore CBD fr the flyer
it was a good very first marathon :P
I had fun doin ppl-watch though....hahahaha

now back to serious stuff:
JP Morgan Corporate Challenge 2011 is the 8th one being held in Spore
it's a worldwide event runnin consecutively from London, New York to Sydney
all proceeds will go to MILK and ACM

pics stolen fr the web hehehehe
it's Mr. Jochen Kuenzel of Boston Consulting vs Mr. Ho of UBS sprinting to the finishing line

and the results:
MEN -- Christopher Yates of BP Singapore *yaaay go go BP!!!!!*
WOMEN -- Jenny Lundgren of Standard Chartered Singapore

and after this race.....we sprinted to the hawkers centre for char kuey teow, satays, carrot cake, hokkien mee, grilled chicken wings and pilled on more than we burned :P

pretty long menu but can't beat the wines
we have more wines than food and Sommelier Timothy helped out with arrangement

Monkey & I-Ching and yes she is very very tall
even with my 6 inches heels I looked like a hobbit
Birthday boy Prince C and I-Ching

Flatmate Amy & GOE

amuse bouche and by that time we already had a champagne and 3 white wines
more oyster!!!!
tartare of scallop and oyster with caviar and its jus
cold pasta is a must have
cold capellini with king crab and mentaiko
eppy eppy Monkey but she can't drink much coz she's driving!!!!!
initially we were contemplating to take a cab to and fro but then by popular demand *including meself* we wanted to head to Soo Kee for supper so die die must drive!!!!
the other side of the table....the restaurant should provide us walkie talkie to talk to each other
but being us, we just moved around fr end to end

confit of white asparagus with lobster and mollet egg
combine the egg yolk and gelee and YUM

a 44 years old wine....even older than the bday boy
just by touching its bottle......the boys knew it's a Gaja

Prince C managed to source this bottle of Petrus 1970
