Gotta miss the old times

My boss and I had a good lunch yesterday (his last day of work) at Secret Recipe. We had a good talk about the organisation. My studies have really given me a very much better appreciation of the management’s perspective, and coupling with what I myself feel as a ground level worker, I seem to get the feel that I can better evaluate what I think of my organisation.

My colleagues and I will all miss him. One day he’ll come back – but to bring us along his path to greater success (and $$$ I hope). Haha!


The oldies. Don’t you love ‘em? I do. I was just reminiscing about the old TV shows and music.

Last night I watched (between commercials on CSI) a documentary about Dean Martin. It seemed to be more of a showcase of clips of his show where he sang and sang and sang. He sounded wonderful. Reminded me of some musicals I used to watch on TV. Catchy and easy tunes to sing, yet when you put them together they can form a story all on its own. So simple and clean.

Thank goodness for Gold 90FM ‘cos my parents listen to it in the car. The music they play on the weekends are the best. I still listen to the regular pop-ish stations so I don’t get left behind on what’s on radio now. I don’t want to be 23 and have the brain of a 50 year old, ya know?

As for TV… Once upon a time, I had the privilege of watching re-runs of “I Love Lucy”, “Bewitched” and “I Dreamed A Genie”. They actually showed them on afternoon TV. Then at night, there were the ever exciting “Mission Impossible”, “Macguyver”, “Quantum Leap”, and many many others. There were movies like “Herbie” (now in cinemas as a remake), and the numerous musicals.
During the weekends we had cute and innocent characters like the “Gummy Bears”, “My Little Pony” and the “Care Bears”. Oh. And “Rainbow Brite” too.
Then there were the animated-musicals like “Beauty & The Beast”, “Anastascia” and “The Little Mermaid”.
[Speaking of which, if there were never a worse song to be sung in another language it’s “Under The Sea” by Sebastian the Crab in The Little Mermaid, being destroyed by being sung in Mandarin. What the hell…. Sung by Jolin Tsai some more…. I think it’s just WRONG.]

Gosh, I miss all these shows.

I think I miss sitcoms the most for TV, and musicals for movies. It’s so difficult to get laughs out of a good script and acting. We now have to make do with laughing at the expense of others (read REALITY TV).

I have always loved musicals and always do. I have always deeply envied how those on screen could act, sing and dance all at the same time. Plentiful on stage I’m sure, but not that many do come to Singapore. And when they do, they usually cost a bomb.

Moulin Rouge and Chicago proved to be mega successes, but will there be any more? Are there any more movie-musicals? [Was “The Producers” ever on film? If yes, I’ve really gotta do a search on it.] What I’m afraid of is the need to import these things in. Argh… Sure, there’s always bittorrent, but how many weeks do I have to leave the computer running to get ONE movie?! I’d rather own the DVD.

Even piano scores also can’t get in Singapore. Must import. Argh…… Thank goodness for the internet.
I still miss my piano. I don’t even bother looking around for piano scores any more ‘cos there’s nothing to play on.

I’ve got so much and yet I’m still complaining. Well, this is what this blog is for isn’t it? At least “listening” to my lamenting is optional now.


So many things to do, so little time.........
Can I have more annual leave pleassssse?

So I was having cybersex the other day.
It was pretty good I guess. Here it is:

bloodninja: Baby, I been havin a tough night so treat me nice aight?
BritneySpears14: Aight.
bloodninja: Slip out of those pants baby, yeah.
BritneySpears14: I slip out of my pants, just for you, bloodninja.
bloodninja: Oh yeah, aight. Aight, I put on my robe and wizard hat.
BritneySpears14: Oh, I like to play dress up.
bloodninja: Me too baby.
BritneySpears14: I kiss you softly on your chest.
bloodninja: I cast Lvl. 3 Eroticism. You turn into a real beautiful woman.
BritneySpears14: Hey...
bloodninja: I meditate to regain my mana, before casting Lvl. 8 Cock of the Infinite.
BritneySpears14: Funny I still don't see it.
bloodninja: I spend my mana reserves to cast Mighty F*ck of the Beyondness.
BritneySpears14: You are the worst cyber partner ever. This is ridiculous.
bloodninja: Don't f*ck with me $**@#, I'm the mightiest sorcerer of the lands.
bloodninja: I steal yo soul and cast Lightning Lvl. 1,000,000 Your body explodes into a fine bloody mist, because you are only a Lvl. 2 Druid.
BritneySpears14: Don't ever message me again you piece of #@@!.
bloodninja: Robots are trying to drill my brain but my lightning shield inflicts DOA attack, leaving the robots as flaming piles of metal.
bloodninja: King Arthur congratulates me for destroying Dr. Robotnik's evil army of Robot Socialist Republics. The cold war ends. Reagan steals my accomplishments and makes like it was cause of him.
bloodninja: You still there baby? I think it's getting hard now.
bloodninja: Baby?

Yeah it was pretty sweet.

This one was good.
bloodninja: Ok baby, we got to hurry, I don't know how long I can keep it ready for you.
j_gurli3: thats ok. ok i'm a japanese schoolgirl, what r u.
bloodninja: A Rhinocerus. Well, hung like one, thats for sure.
j_gurli3: haha, ok lets go.
j_gurli3: i put my hand through ur hair, and kiss u on the neck.
bloodninja: I stomp the ground, and snort, to alert you that you are in my breeding territory.
j_gurli3: haha, ok, u know that turns me on.
j_gurli3: i start unbuttoning ur shirt.
bloodninja: Rhinoceruses don't wear shirts.
j_gurli3: No, ur not really a Rhinocerus silly, it's just part of the game.
bloodninja: Rhinoceruses don't play games. They f*cking charge your ass.
j_gurli3: stop, cmon be serious.
bloodninja: It doesn't get any more serious than a Rhinocerus about to charge your ass.
bloodninja: I stomp my feet, the dust stirs around my tough skinned feet.
j_gurli3: thats it.
bloodninja: Nostrils flaring, I lower my head. My horn, like some phallic symbol of my potent virility, is the last thing you see as skulls collide and mine remains the victor. You are now a bloody red ragdoll suspended in the air on my mighty horn.
bloodninja: Goddam am I hard now.

This kinda sucked.

BritneySpears14: Ok, are you ready?
eminemBNJA: Aight, yeah I'm ready.
BritneySpears14: I like your music Em... Tee hee.
eminemBNJA: huh huh, yeah, I make it for the ladies.
BritneySpears14: Mmm, we like it a lot. Let me show you.
BritneySpears14: I take off your pants, slowly, and massage your muscular physique.
eminemBNJA: Oh I like that Baby. I put on my robe and wizard hat.
BritneySpears14: What the f*ck, I told you not to message me again.
eminemBNJA: Oh #@@!
BritneySpears14: I swear if you do it one more time I'm gonna report your ISP and say you were sending me kiddie porn you f*ck up.
eminemBNJA: Oh #@@!
eminemBNJA: damn I gotta write down your names or something

Ew this chick was nasty. Yeeeeaah.

bloodninja: Wanna cyber?
Katie_007: Sure, you into vegetables?
bloodninja: What like gardening an #@@!?
Katie_007: Yeah, something like that.
bloodninja: Nothing turns me on more, check this out:
bloodninja: You bend over to harvest your radishes.
Katie_007: is that it?
bloodninja: You water your tomato patch.
bloodninja: Are you ready for my fresh produce?
Katie_007: I was thinking of like, sexual acts INVOLVING vegetables... Can you make it a little more sexy for me?
bloodninja: I touch you on your lettuce, you massage my spinach... sexily.
bloodninja: I ride your buttocks like they were amber waves of grains.
Katie_007: Grain doesn't really turn me on... I was thinking more along the lines of
carrots and zucchinis.
bloodninja: my zucchinis carresses your carrots.
bloodninja: Damn baby you're right, this #@@! is HOTT.
Katie_007: ...
bloodninja: My turnips listen for the soft cry of your love. My insides turn to celery as I unleash my warm and sticky cauliflower of love.
Katie_007: What the f*ck is this madlibs? I'm outta here.
bloodninja: Yeah, well I already unleashed my cauliflower, all over your olives, and up in your eyes. Now you can't see. Bitch.
Katie_007: whatever.


I've been getting some cheap laughs over the internet lately.. just to keep myself happy. Ain't I a sad freak? haha!
Loads to get done.
I need to get organised badly.
And stop being lazy.

I could've studied last night, but nooooo.. I was enjoying CSI NY and Miami. I've learnt to like both of these after Las Vegas. Really gotta watch it for a while before understanding why it's so hard to adjust from one to the other. These locations are very different, so obviously some procedures, etc are different too.

TV is good.

I still hate studying (not like I do anyway).

RA and non-RA funnies

Found these posted on sgforums:

(Probably local) guy who bought a bikini and tries it on

Girl who loves sex and shows it

Funny interpretation of Jay Chou's "Qi Li Xiang"

Stumbled upon these non-RA ones:
Maybe all MRTs at peak hours need such services (or there's always the taxi)


Laughed hard at my compy 'cos of this

Very simple prank but definitely effective

Good hair day

As usual: no photoshop-ping or special lighting used. Just a quick self-taken shot. I'm hideous. I know it, but I can't help but post this photo up anyway to show off that I spent a whopping $225 on my lousy hair to make it MUCH better now!!!
Thank goodness for rebonding. Definitely feel much lighter, and my hair will finally be able to dry quickly once more!!! I went to Pro Trim at Westmall to do it 'cos Jantzen and Coslab were packed and more expensive. Pro Trium did not disappoint me anyway. In fact, I was out of there in 4 hours - rebonding, treatment, and cut. No hard sell for ANY products, or asking me to dye my hair. I still bought conditioner and shampoo so that the effects will last longer. I had to actually ask him before he intro-ed. He said my hair in good condition, just use one bottle enough, next time no need to buy again. Also partially because he said it's quite expensive. Haha! Happy happy. Posted by Picasa

Boat + Pool = Zaki's House

Last week, we pumped up and "built" Zaki's house. Somehow this week, the shelter didn't fix on well, and it became Zaki's boat. He thinks it's one of those bouncy thingys at pasar malams. THe other part of his house became his swimming pool in my parents' toilet. Posted by Picasa

TOo bad I can't upload videos 'cos he's even cuter there. haha! Posted by Picasa

He and his car. Next time he'll be a mechanic and just work at the petrol station sia. Posted by Picasa

Kiki made Dearie be the one riding the dog this time. Yay! Usually he'd ask me. Super tiring. Heehee! Posted by Picasa

I look freaking retarded in this. Self taken shot, so can't really blame me ya? Guess what they're looking at? Yup, it's Dearie's handphone AGAIN. Both of them enjoy it. The similarities.. ahh.. No wonder I love them both so much. Hahahaha! Posted by Picasa

Mummy walks in and helps me to snap. Hahaha! Not easy to capture Ki's face looking at camera lehz... Posted by Picasa

Mummy gives it another try... Posted by Picasa

Took a couple of times before I managed to get a shot of all 3 of us in bed. We were making sure he drank his milk else he'd spill it, or juz land up playing. Posted by Picasa

Photos from Friday night

Tada.. Filtered out whatever I could and decided that these are the only safe things to post. Hahahahhaa!

The company's gift to my boss..... (selected by none other than yours truly). Posted by Picasa

Finance, HR and me. Don't seem to look tired huh? hmm.. Training with ki worked. Running with him around the house can now be comparable to running up and down the length of the workshop. Posted by Picasa

Another group photo. THis time my bosses inside (including the one leaving). Posted by Picasa

Creepy and nice people lurk at work

Check out Ruben's post on his close and creeeeeepy encounter here.

You can also read about a funny encounter semi-atwork here.


Mine's on nice people at work. Mainly my boss.
I finally finished organising the farewell BBQ for him.

Happy - 'cos everything went without a hitch.
Sad - 'cos his last day is on Tuesday.

I can't post photos of the event for fear of the ISA being enacted upon yours truly, so I'll see what few I can afford to put up when "Picasa's Hello" (for uploading photos) is working.

I'll miss my boss alot. He's been so extremely wonderful. Of course the remaining managers are just as fantastic, but it's just something I can't help feeling.
My workplace is heaven. Really. Only that career prospects don't look too good for youngsters like me.

Heck. I'm not really much into career as I am into salary. I'm sorry about being all $$$-minded, but it's my main concern. I need it for my future lahz. hahaha! I can say all this 'cos I love my current job. haha!

My boss said to me while sending me back, that he recognises my effort. I know it too, because he shows it on a day-to-day basis. He's such a good boss that all I really need as motivation sometimes, is just a heartfelt "Thank You" or buying a small trinklet from overseas.

Better still, my GM also appreciates my work. It's not easy to find people (much less bosses) who actually appreciate ADMIN work. All that coordination, super multi-tasking, etc etc... or maybe it just applies to my company. If people think it's easy, they do lahz! Why need me right? hahaha! Still, I enjoy it. I am sure MALES will have problems - I haven't found one who can multi-task properly. So you may not need a degree to do this job but it definitely requires much more from one - all the stuff you don't get from the Singaporean education.

My boss calls me the General Manager of the company - because I touch on all areas of the company that keep it functioning (except the ones that bring in the business - the engineering stuff). HR, IT, Finance, etc etc etc... I take on whatever I can. I don't see the need to push things away if I am capable of doing them. Why give up a chance to learn something new? You really can gain a larger appreciation and perspective of how a company runs.

I call myself the person who spends the money that the company makes. HAHAHAHA!

I could go on and on, but I think I'd bore whoever's reading to the core.


Going to office tomorrow to participate for the first time in the 7th Month Prayer thingy. Going to monkey-see-monkey-do.

I'm exhausted. But this definitely feels better than if it were being caused by studying.

If I were a cyborg..

Journeying Upgraded Zombie Assembled for Galactic Assassination and Learning

Cute pussy cat

This was the only sight that made me smile after rushing home from work, then rushing to school to sit through a boring 3 hr lecture. I love animals. I'm a huge sucker for them. This cutie was sleeping till I went a bit too close for the photo and it looked up at me. Posted by Picasa

As promised: The Indian Wedding

Date: 21st August 2005, SUNDAY
Event: Indian Wedding

Getting there:
Dearie was working till 7pm so I had to make my way down to the wedding on my own. BUT thankfully, our friend Weitang managed to get his dad's Cefiro out so he picked me up.

I had NO IDEA if there was a dress code at all. In fact, not a single one of us ex-classmates knew what to do (at least those I were still in contact with) so I was in a black and white dress. I felt overdressed but my parents said it looked fine for a wedding.

Weitang lost his way along the roads. We had to cut through a small road to hit Serangoon Road. Little did we realise we would be entering a part of Singapore we'd never thought we'd see.

We were surrounded by Indians. As in foreign-worker-Indians. I usually don't mind them at all, but damn.. at this particular road, we were literally surrounded. It was scary, to a certain extent.

They were everywhere. They occupied the roads and sidewalks, the car could only inch its way through. Thankfully, oddly, there was an ambulance that pulled out in front of us from the sidewalk and turned on its siren. It managed to CRAWL (faster than inch) its way through the hoards of Indian nationals, and we tagged closely behind.

Seriously, it was an eye opener. There are so many foreign workers in Singapore... Singaporeans NEED to take up labour jobs sia............

Finally there:
By the time we reached the place, it was 7:15pm. A little late, but we did seem like the only ones there. Dearie reached not long after. He didn't have any problems at all. Heng ah.. otherwise I don't dare to think what he'd do in Indian Land. Probably something along the lines of a massacre.

Wedding gift
We waited a while more and saw Zhenlin and her boyfriend. We discussed how much was the "rate" of ang baos to be given. LUCKILY GOT DISCUSS AH! I nearly gave $100 for me and Dearie. She said she only put $50 for 2 people and bought a gift.
In the end, our ang bao value decreased to $60. Don't spoil market mahz... hor???

The bride
We were waiting to enter the hall for the wedding. No one knew what to expect inside. The reception was crowded, so we hung around then from the road came a wedding car and we just knew at that moment, our Indian ex-classmate Jaya would be stepping out any moment!!!!!!!!! So long no see!!!~

More friends
Then to "spoil" the moment, Pornsak, Beng Kee and Jialun came out from the side of the building and walked towards us. The most surprising thing is that Jialun actually greeted me: "Hi Nili." I WAS STUNNED. Hahaha! He remember my name sia!!! And I don't remember talking to him in class! [Actually I don't remember talking to Dearie in secondary school either.. hmm..]

Anyway, our mini-celeb Pornsak as usual was as enthusiastic as ever. That fella going to all expense paid trip to Hong Kong Disneyland lorz. Biangz.....

Back to the wedding
Too bad no photos. Forgot my camera lahz. We signed in at the reception after the crowd dispersed somehow, and Jaya was getting ready to enter the hall. We quickly went in.

This is the ice-sculpture vase that greeted us at the reception. Nice touch. Posted by Picasa

The setting
What greeted us was a sight I did not expect. I thought there'd be round tables for us to sit at and wait for food. Instead, was a stage up front of the hall, with many rows of chairs (think of it like it's arranged for you to watch a performance), with an aisle in the centre.
At the 2 sides were people preparing the food. Where we entered from (the back of the hall) were long tables with many chairs.

We grabbed a seat near to all our other classmates. Dearie was really feeling bored and uncomfortable. It didn't help that he was VERY hungry after a long day of work.

The ceremony
The ceremony started. I must have missed something 'cos when I looked up, the bride was on stage, doing some kind of cleansing ritual for 10mins or so - clean face only lahz. Then she disappeared.

Her husband went forward to the parents and from the gestures, seemed like was getting his blessings. Don't ask me who's parents. I am only writing my own interpretation of what happened.

The husband then walked to the very centre of the stage where a guru looking guy was kneeling. Probably the equivalent of a monk or priest. The both knelt there for another very long while.
When he got up, I thought the ritual was over, but nooooooo.. Now is the wifey's turn. She appeared from the side of the stage in a new outfit and make-up all on again. She did the same thing as her husband and we sat through another round of kneeling (and some kind of ritual we could barely see nor hear).

Finally! Both of them get to kneel together. AGAIN, (yep, you guessed it) for another long while. By this time, the indian lady sitting beside me and Dearie had passed us a small amount of yellow rice to set in our palms. We had been holding the rice for many long whiles.

Suddenly we hear a loud cheer and feel like sand hitting us from behind. We realised that it was time to throw the rice. I mean really throw it by dispersing it over the people in front of us. Haha! Simultaneously, everyone was using their hand to run through their hair.

The bride and groom sat in two large chairs on the stage, and that was our cue that the ceremony was over. (Like what Zhenlin said: Awww.. Look at our girl all grown up...! Haha!!!)

[Took these photos when we went up on stage, and waiting for our turn to greet her.]

That's the bride (my ex-classmate Jaya) seated and smiling. Awwwww..... Posted by Picasa

After all those rituals on stage, we finally got to go up and see the aftermath up close. Wow. Posted by Picasa

The food
A voice over the speakers invited us to get the food from the sides of the hall. Instantaneously, people rushed out of their seats. Dearie, the hungry one, was no exception. A ridiculously long queue developed by the time we got there. Managed to tag on to Pornsak and cut in. Heehee…

As we moved ever so slowly closer to the food, we made a very queer observation – that the first several people to get the food were Chinese. What the hell…

We grabbed a plate eventually and got some food. I’ve never been attracted to Indian food, and the selection that night did not in any way entice me to change that fact. Don’t know why… Just not my type bah. Good thing I ate before dinner. It’s a must do before all weddings I guess – except Malay ones. I didn’t need to do that for my sis’ wedding. Good good.

Wedding gift giving
All of us ex-classmates gathered around and discussed how to give our gifts/ang baos to the couple. Turns out we had to go up on the stage to do so. Wow. In Chinese weddings, the bride and groom walk around from table to table. This one you go look for them. Good idea lehz.

There was a short queue at the stage but it moved much faster than the food one. We went up and gave our blessings to the new couple. Gave them our little ang bao and received a little take home gift ourselves.

This is the little gift for all the people who went on stage to give their blessings to the couple. Posted by Picasa

Inside of the little bag are this golden box with the Malay words "Terima Kasih" (translated as THANK YOU). Along with it was a candle in a glass. Posted by Picasa

hahaha! Top view with the box opened this time. It's a bunch of sweets and some chocolate. As of now (Thursday), mummy has helped to eat the chocolate. I'm not into sweets so the rest are still waiting to be eaten. Posted by Picasa

Going home
The bunch of us gathered outside the wedding hall to chat a while and the majority needed to get home. Most of us were working adults already. One’s a DJ with a 6am shift, another’s a facilitator (something like a lecturer) at Republic Polytechnic, Zhenlin’s with SGH at the cardiac dept, etc…. I’m just an admin girl. That sounds really sad huh? Damn…. Once I get my degree I’ll probably go do something else. I love it here, but unless they can offer me a much higher salary and more dynamic job (allow me to travel with my colleagues?), otherwise it’s only a matter of time before I leave. Till then, got to study so this job is still too perfect to let go.

Ok, I digress a lot.

Someone in our group said that Jaya would be going to France for 2 years with her husband ‘cos he’d been posted there. How cool is that?!?!?!?!

We made our separate ways home. Zhenlin and Weitang were the only ones who drove so I don’t know how they settled the who-send-who home debate in the end ‘cos I got onto Dearie’s bikey and sped off. Haha! Super cold night that day. Strong winds. Brrrr…
Riding bike very dangerous. There was a YELLOW TAXI (meaning a CITYCAB one) that cut into the lane we were on. HELLO?! Cannot see that we are there ah?! Apparently on the right lane, there was a car that wasn’t going as fast as the taxi. We were on the lane on the left. The car would’ve eventually overtaken us as it was just about a car length’s behind us.. Dearie knows well that I’ll freak if he goes too fast, so he tries to keep it faster than large vehicles but slower than taxis.

Mr Citycab Taxi Driver was probably on his way to get reincarnated and couldn’t afford to be late ‘cos he’d go to hell. He decided to, instead of just staying behind the car and eventually overtaking us, take the left land to overtake the car, and zoom in between the gap of us and the car, then go on his way.

If you have the scenario right, you’d realise that by the time the taxi went onto the left lane, the gap between us and the car would have closed up a little due to our speeds. Mr Citycab Taxi Driver was just that tiny bit close to hitting us. If people cut between cars I’ll shut up but please lahz. If you just so much as touch the bike, you’d have to take responsibility of the live(s) on the bike liaoz lor. It’s just not worth it.

Digressed again. Oops.
I can’t help it.

Future advice for people attending Indian Weddings
You never know when you’ll attend one but in multi-racial Singapore, it just might happen. I didn’t have any inkling what to expect but let me help you unravel that mystery:
1) There is NO dress code. I’d suppose “presentable” would suffice.
2) Go with a friend, or make sure your mobile phone has some nice game inside to meddle with. This is for during the ceremony. I don’t mean any disrespect, but if you’re seated at the back, you’ll DEFINITELY not be able to see anything that happens on the stage.
3) Eat before you leave the house. Have some sort of snack at least.
4) Not necessarily must give ang bao. Present also can.


Wah. This post damn long eh? Sorry ah. The whole post didn’t turn out as good as I wanted it to be. Maybe it’s the time lapse from Sunday till now.
This is why I used to write my articles in Poly, right after the event.
And why I make sure I finish writing my meeting minutes by the following day.

RobX said erotic blogs make good money. I’m still wondering how. Hmm.. if I’m free-er, I could always try. Although I really should be writing HRM essays instead.


Tomorrow’s the farewell BBQ for my boss. Hope everything works out well. It'll be a one-woman show tomorrow. Small event compared to what others have to deal with, but this is one of the favourite parts of my job, and I am super determined to make it a good one.

Blogging time-out

My apologies for not posting the "Indian Wedding" write-up yet. I am really really really busy with work and school commitments now.

Went to Orchard just now. Nope. Not to shop for myself, but for my boss' present. Oops. He may be reading. Hmm....

Well, after entering a few high end shops, I ended up at the first one I considered. Partially 'cos of price, partially 'cos of branding image suitability. Hahahaha! BLECH.

Nicely wrapped up:

If my boss is reading: Yes it's for you! Please don't expect anything expensive inside 'cos I spent all the money on the food. Oopsie! Posted by Picasa

So thankful that all the high end shop assistants totally ignored me so I was free to touch anything I liked. HA! Good eh..... No chance to shop like that next time liaoz.
The assistants were not rude or stuck-up today. They seemed a little bored in fact. No customers. No wonder. Ah well.

I grabbed a Folli Follie watch catalogue when I zapped through Takashimaya.

Managed to browse through and this model caught my eye. It is a non-metal strap, with all the number places indicated clearly. Now THAT'S a proper watch. Too bad, probably won't be able to afford it. I'm sure there is something of a similar design from other makers. I'm not brand conscious about watches 'cos I scratch them easily so cheap cheap good good.
My current one is from Guess. Gift from Dad 'cos he bought it cheap in the US when I was in secondary school - meaning 7-8 years ago. Still works fine for me.Posted by Picasa

On the way home, I met Huimin and Junli from secondary school. We talked about how everyone we were in still in contact were doing. They're genuinely nice girls. One's an accountant and another is still in NUS. Apparently now both of them quiet quiet people like to go ktv. Next time gathering I know where and who to call liaoz!~

Speaking of ktv, AH CHANG!!! WHEN YOU ORGANISING?!?!?! I super stressed. Need to de-stress liaoZ!~ HAHAHAHAHA!~


Oh Oh Oh... I remember what I wanted to write here: I allowed STEVEN LIM (yes, the one from www.stevenlim.net) to pluck my eyebrows for $10. HAHAHAHA! Why? I just thought of letting him earn the money. Poor fella dunno can earn how much a day only sia.

Ok lahz. within 5mins I was done. Got to talk to him a little while plucking. Doesn't seem as BHB as he is on the website. Haha!
But seriously, his plucking skills not too bad lahz. I liked that it was fast. I didn't like that he didn't trim the length.

Like I said, it was for him to earn.

The dieting pig is chasing me away from the comp so I can't type more about the short and brief exchange I had with him. Maybe I'll do so in my comments when I'm free........

Till then, it's off to rest, for another super hectic day of work AND blardy school.


Adding on stuff since I got the compy back from the pig:

An Indian-wedding night (Pre-empt)

I attended the first Indian wedding in my life tonight. I will give a full blog report about it when I'm free. It was quite refreshing.. in a very different kinda way. Watch out for it.

[BUT, no photos 'cos I didn't have a camera.]

Meanwhile, you'll have to make do with kiki's photos. haha!

A kiki afternoon

I know I thought Ki wasn't coming over this weekend but somehow, my parents managed to. Guess his mummy (my sis) had too much work to do and needed some extra hands to care for him. She actually had to do the work at my place.

Some stuff I caught on video and won't be able to post but here's a very quick rundown of what he did at our place today!

ANOTHER new toy my mummy bought. Heng ah. Only $2. Posted by Picasa

Kiki's mummy thinks this shot is artistic. HAHAHA! Actually, kiki was moving and she missed the shot. Posted by Picasa

Just thought this was too cute not to post. Posted by Picasa

We brought kiki to the Watsons Warehouse Sale at Clementi ITE. Odd place to hold it, but hey, it was quite all right actually. Not too crowded and quite a few things to look at. Mummy happily bought 2 pots at $2.40 each. CHEAP LEHZ! Even my sis bought. Posted by Picasa
