In The Sleeper by Emily Barr, things start to reveal after the disappearance of Lara while returning to Cornwall one night by sleeper train.
She is living a lie. She is desperately bored with her quiet life in Cornwall and her marriage to the devoted but dull Sam, intentionally gets her godfather to set up a job opportunity which requires her to commute weekly on an overnight sleeper train to London, meets a handsome chap Guy she can't help being attracted to and starts an illicit affair. But then Guy is murdered, while Lara vanishes without a trace ......
This is a book of 4 parts. In first two, Lara and Iris tell the story from different perspectives, part 3 is Lara's diary that unveils what she had done aeons ago in Asia - Thailand and Singapore. Part 4 - The killer comes to light. To my amusement, he will be caught at Singapore Airport.
I enjoyed it to the very end.
Life is about the moment when you wake up and you're able to feel the heat of the sun and you know you're in it.
A blessing indeed!

The Crispy chicken drumsticks are truly fantastic. Love the skins !
Though his look was not as yummy initially due to the long wait. The queue is all time long, worst during the weekends.
I am drooling even just look at the picture. Must be hungry ^^

Saw this on the wall at Telok Ayer Road. What is it about ?
A check at sg.movember.com :
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world. With their “Mo’s” men raise vital funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. As an independent global charity, Movember’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.
HOW IT WORKS
Movember challenges men to grow a moustache for the 30-days of November, thereby changing their appearance and the face of men’s health.
In October Mo Bros sign up at Movember.com, and on the 1st of Movember with a clean-shaven face start their Mo growing journey. Then for the entire month, these selfless and generous men known as Mo Bros, effectively become walking, talking billboards for 30 days. Through their growing efforts they raise awareness for the often ignored issues of men’s health, by prompting conversations wherever they go. Another crucial part of being a Mo Bro is to raise funds for men’s health. Men donate their face, and much like taking part in a run or a walk for charity, ask their family and friends to sponsor their efforts. Movember’s not just for men. The women of Movember are known as Mo Sistas. They play a vital role in the success of Movember by supporting and encouraging the men in their life to get involved. Mo Sistas also get involved by signing up at Movember.com, and participate by raising funds and awareness themselves. Essentially, Mo Sistas do everything that Mo Bros do, without a Mo. At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their Movember journey at one of the official GALA PARTÉS held around the world.
Must be fun !!!

Attained the Barista Course with certification from City&Guilds at Oriton school in Clarke Quay last weekends. Now I know what are the differences between Expresso, Macchiato, Doppio, Long Black, Caffe Latte, Cappuccino, Mocha, etc. and know how to make them with a semi-auto coffee machine. The most challenging part is to make a nice foamy steamed milk. I tried so many times and luckily managed to make a real nice and satisfying one during the assessment.
And YES, i passed. Ho Ho Ho !
