Mushroom and Baby Spinach Pasta Easy Recipe 

VERDICT
ABBEY: This is another creation of my Baby Wilma. Pasta with mushroom and spinach in olive, boring? No it is not. This simple dinner is delicious and packs a lot of flavour. 

Maybe not your ordinary pasta flooded with tomato sauce and meatballs but it is good to divert from the usual from time to time. 

Next, maybe tuna or salmon can join the party.

Inferno Singapore (2016 Film) - Dan Brown

ABBEY: This is the third installation of Robert Langdon's story; the main character of the novels by Dan Brown. 

It started in the hospital where Robert was being treated. He is having trouble remembering what transpired the past 48 hours and having visions and weird dreams. He doesn't even remember the word for coffee :) But just as puzzle-solver he is and with his skills regarding the arts, he is able to decipher it and save the world. There maybe wrong guesses and interpretation of information but all fell into places before the inferno strikes. 

Like the Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, this movie made me appreciate the arts more and the secret passageways on museums :)


Shaw Theatres Singapore Inferno Movie Booking Confirmation

WILL: The first book I read that was written by Dan Brown is the Deception Point. Oh! I have no intention to put it down unless my eyes screaming at me so I can put them to slumber. Haha. Then, Abbey surprised me of the boom Inferno. :) And for the second time, I watch a movie that I have read. Ha!

It just validated by imagination while reading Inferno. But I cannot help myself to smile at myself because I know what will happen next. Crazy right? 

Anyways, I enjoyed the movie!

TEDxNTU (Singapore) 2016: Through the Looking Glass

ABBEY: I registered late for this event due to my schedule getting changed at the 11th hour. And I got a reply that I'm on the waiting list. I was hesitant to come as I know the event will be fully packed and going there and being told that there is no room for more will be disappointing. But still I pushed for it and luckily I got in. TEDx NTU welcomes walk-ins. Yey!

We were there 20 minutes early. From the start until the end, all the talks and ideas are all worth spreading. From reptiles to genes to water. What struck me the most is the talk from Raj Singh. He talked about the life of foreign workers for households and construction. They all endure the hardships, struggles, sacrifices and criticisms just to send money back to their families back home. It gave me more awareness of how they are being treated and how they should be treated.

I hope I can attend more TED events or can be the one who will stand in that red circle.

WILL: Be careful what you wish for...this is the best part of unrelentless praying and murmuring your wants and needs to ALMIGHTY. One prayer was granted..again. To attend a live TED talk. 

Why would I submerge myself in telenovelas (sorry I am not fond of it) when I could pick some brains of experts in their fields? TEDx was held at NTU one Saturday and Abbey's classmate send the invite for us months before. No second thoughts, I registered. 

What's the best part I have learned? From Dr. Chris Cummings, communication can break us apart. Dr. Jørgen Schlundt  verified Abbey and I thinking that people are getting sick because of the chemicals we are putting in our food and feeds given to domesticated livestocks.  Akshobh Giridharadas, "yellow journalism" is all over the web. A catchy/fear spreading title but nothing special inside. Investigative journalism is dying because of this non-sense news that lurks in social media sites. Yamini Bhaskar fear can be unlearned (okay I will work on that) and Raj Singh made my tear flow while seeing seeing his short video about workers here in Singapore. 

An-eye opening experience. Ideas worth to think of. Ideas worth sharing! Thanks NTU for the free TEDx, free lunch and high tea (never get the chance to taste the food or drinks served, don't worry it is okay), free goodie bag! Till next year's TEDx.

The Global Filipino Investors Singapore - Will's First Personal Finance Talk

ABBEY: Wilma gave her talk in TGFI last October 1. Her topic? "How to get what you want?". Simple question with simple answer: Know what you want and get it. But do you really know what you want? And are you doing actions to get it? Watch the video and please take action.




WILL: 
"One thing at a time", that is our motto in goals we are eyeing to. After Abbey's talk last June on how to change your perspective in life, kuya Rex scheduled me for October's Finance Talk. It's time to give back. 

I do hope that I have enlightened some and have encouraged them to what I have discussed to achieve their goals. 

Abbey and I found some men that wants to invest on our future project. Yey! 'Till next time TGFI. I am looking forward to pitch our projects to qualified investors some day. :) 

Enjoy the video.

Rev Up Singapore! - Thursday Pit Lane Experience 2016

ABBEY: We were able to secure tickets for 2016 Formula 1 Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix Pit Lane experience. And we went there with my brothers-in-law. 

At the entrance, we were given glowing wrist straps; very cool design. Like any other Night Race eve, merchandises, food and drinks were being sold. Free temporary tattoos, podium stage replica photo ops were there also. The Koi Boys gave us wonderful performance before the circuit is open. 

The purpose of the colored wriststraps is for crowd control which is a nice improvement so people will not queue up for so long and not enjoy the live entertainment at the Village Stage. We also got a chance to take snaps of the sexy showgirls of Samba Brasil. 

What I observed is that many of the team garages were closed. So what are we supposed to do on that? They're just gray walls with the name of driver of top. We're ok even only the car will be seen as the driver's appearance is rare. But a closed garage, c'mon. 

I hope it will be better next year.

WILL: Before the roaring engines of Formula 1 cars on weekends are the laughters and handclaps of fans who won a Thursday Pit Lane Experience. :) 

Wohoooo! Now, we are together with my brothers. So what's with 2016's Rev-Up Singapore? Yay, for new wrist straps bracelet light! Yay for the Koi Band from Australia and DJ who plays songs around 80's. Yay for the Brazilian Girls who welcome us on our way to Pit Lane. Hmmm, boo to close garages. C'mon, even a shadow of F1 team's single tire cannot be seen. My excitement suddenly plunged down. 

Well, I enjoyed the performers. I am expecting next year Singapore GP have something up in their sleeves that will rocked the Little Red Dot! It is their 10th year in here and I attended 3 of those! Wooohooo! Can't wait to see the performers lineup next year! :) 

Suggestion? Can you put again a Fan Zone Contest? This will excite all the ticket holders for sure!
