Missing in Action?

Regular visitors have noticed that there have a slack in my blog posts and some have wonder what had happened?

All is well now, and thanks for your concern.  Even since Paternal Grandma has passed on in May, I have been busy juggling with work and other issues in life, and travelling to & fro Singapore/Sungai Buloh for the various anniversary days to offer praying to her.  And not forgetting the usual weekly routine to JB for work, as well as trips to Penang / Shanghai during the interim for work purposes.

The past 2-3 months were the darkest moment for the year, I have gone through the lost of my loved ones, and a lot of other hiccups in life which I have no wish to talk much about them.  Life is simply full of Ups & Downs, we just have to learn to move on instead of harping on the downs, else, life will continue to be gloomy... Well, words are always easier said than done, it definitely took me a while to walk out of darkness and now I'm all ready for what's ahead for me...

Do expect overloaded posts on my recent crafting and photography works!

Hillsta Amazing Race on 23 Jun 2012


I’ve participated in several Amazing Race before, but in the past, I in the role of station master only. For the first time, I’m in the role of participant, am rather excited about this.

First time I went to a showroom, and it is amazing to see what’s in store.

Hillsta adopts the Satoyama Concept. ‘Sato’ means arable, livable land in Japanese ‘Yama’ means mountain Inspired by the concept of Satoyama, Hillsta has been created to take full advantage of its highly-coveted hillside location so that residents can coexist with nature.

The Hillsta is just a 3mins walk from Phoenix LRT Station & 4mins walk to Teck Whye LRT Station. In fact, it is also within walking distance to Ten Miles Junction as well as future Bukit Panjang MRT Station. It is rather easy to travel around. It is also near Junction 10, Bukit Panjang Plaza, Bukit Panjang Libarary, Lot 1 Shopper’s Mall, as well as Rail Mail. It is rather near to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Bukit Batok Town Park.

There are 6 Stations at the Hillsta Amazing Race, namely @ Junction 10, Phoenix LRT, Bukit Panjang LRT, Bukit Panjang Plaza, Teck Whye Food Centre & Bonus Station. The one who win the most Hillsta Dollars will walk away with $1,500 worth of Orchard Central Shopping Vouchers!

After a tiring 2hrs of quiz & challenge, I only get to win $2000 Hillsta Dollars…

Of coz, I did not get to win…

but I still find it fulfilling coz I get to take a lot of nice pictures from the showroom!
They have 3 unique residential types: SOHO, condominiums and townhouses that offer full condominum facilities, each of different styles; first of its kind in Choa Chu Kang.  Loving the deco @ the showroom too!


This is after all a friendly match, at the end, we have a group photo at the end of the session, cheers to our friendship!
