26th Birthday for her and a new journey for us with one of our dream "two wheelies"
w3iqiang
Life's been busy as usual. I have always been reminding myself to work hard and play hard and I really hope to balance it although it still appears that the balance is tilted more towards work. But I am pretty sure that things are going to get better especially when I realised that I do not have the time in this world to do whatever I want to do after all the unfortunate events that had happened recently around the globe.

On her very special day, I had decided to make a big decision (of course this is small compared to buying a flat) and that is to get one of our dream "two wheels". This two wheelie had been in my "to buy" list for years and I am really excited that I am finally getting one to fulfil our Vespa dream. Time to get a mini flag and "wasp" around the lion city during the upcoming National day weekend :)

First Home Cooked Spaghetti
w3iqiang
It was really a surprise that the woman who had told me that she hates to cook starts her first dish. Although it is really not a hard task (as all the ready-made sauce and soup are making cooking so much easier before), I really appreciates it. It actually tastes good even though it was her first time haha.

Braces on!
w3iqiang
Finally fulfilled what I call my 'teenage dream'! 2 years without drumlets, apples, steak bla bla bla. But the only thing I am really going to miss will be bubble tea. And it was right after I left the dental clinic and walked past sweet talk that I only realised this unexpected drink which I will having difficulty drinking. Anyway, may be it is the time to cut down on this drink as I think I had overdose myself with bubble tea almost every week since I started working last year. Hope this helps to prevent my risky tummy from sizing up too much.

Learning to Work Better and Live Better
w3iqiang
Time flies, it's been almost 9 months since I started working! As predicted, I am still a workaholic who is still trying to balance life. But somehow, I just love to work and earn money so life can carry on in this society. I wonder my workaholic behaviour was due to monetary reason or I just love what I am doing. But most probably the "push" should come from both aspects since if these two reasons do not exists, I will probably be busy doing something else haha. This year, I hope I can learn faster and become better in what I am doing so I can facilitate the researchers as much as I can (which is why I chosen this path after graduating).

Someone told me that life's like a rainbow. There must be 7 colours for it to be complete. I am always so fixated to work and he told me that I should learn to sit back and juggle my rainbow. I will try and hopefully mine will be a complete one in time to come.

Time to sleep!

Front Fender 'on"
w3iqiang
Finally my dad is free to help me fix this up. But lucky his colleague is there too. The colleague is really good in fixing such stuffs.
I would say he did a good job in drilling and fixing up the fender properly without obstructing the wheels.
Hope this fender will block as much water from my shoes and pants on wet roads :)



Time to continue looking for top box and side boxes!

Tank Cover 'on"
w3iqiang
Finally had time to put on the tank cover, it was a little bit harder than expected to fix this on.
Nonetheless, it's up but sad to see a small dent on the tank which probably was dented when squash in the plane with the other checked-in luggages.
Hopefully one day when I decided to paint the whole bike, someone can cover up that small dent.


Looks bigger if you know the original tank size of the phantom :)



This angle looks just like the original



Looks slight bigger here :)



One thing good is that the enlarged tank really made the big top box I having now to look less bulky
(but I still don't really like this box although it is the best looking (IMO) commercially available box out there)



Now should be able to see the difference :)



And even more difference when comparing with the same coloured phantom :)



Next up would be the front fender when time permits!

Bringing the parts back from Bangkok
w3iqiang
Since I am going to Bangkok, great opportunity to take a look at the parts there. I got to thank Rampage for telling the address! Thanks!
But sadly, I didnt manage to get the boxes that I wanted. But at least I got the cover, topbox rack and front fender.
Slowly but surely, I shall get the remaining parts.
Bringing the parts back was a chore especially when they did not provide me with the correct boxes to contain them.

Keeping the Phantom
w3iqiang
After several months of deep thoughts, I decided to keep the phantom instead of selling it to get a Vespa. Hopefully one fine day, I will get one. Time to look for boxes and parts to make it look sometime which I had imagine this black phantom to be
