What Bullshit

Some rich people....just have too much money I guess until they don't know what else to spend on except on expensive lawsuits. Over the leaking pipes also want to call in the lawyer...and they ran into tens of thousands of dollars just so that the upstairs neighbours will finally fix their leaking pipes. But the upstair neighbours....who didn't want to have fingers pointed at them....stubbornly refuse that the cause of the leaking ceiling was their faulty pipes...also called in the lawyer to help them prove otherwise....90 000 and 60 000 dollars u know, respectively! And here we are...when they got overcharged by say....a few cents...they made it such a big fat deal....When they set up businesses..and made huge profits by overcharging us while employing cheap labour, and 'every cent counts'....they don't blink when they had to pay such high exorbitant price for their law suits....And you know what is the irony of it all?!!!!!

To fix the leaking pipes onlie cost a me…

I'm Blue

I did a quiz online..to find out what kind of colour I am..although I still don't quite understand the purpose of asking what is my fav colour among the list of 4 colours given in the beginning. Coz I ended up with the colour I picked.

But, it could be a total coincidence....anyway, the description it gave me as a 'Blue'....was downright, almost accurate! Almost freaky...

This is what it says:

*Blue*
"You're blue — the most soothing shade of the spectrum. The color of a clear summer sky or a deep, reflective ocean, blue has traditionally symbolized trust, solitude, and loyalty. Most likely a thoughtful person who values spending some time on your own, you'd rather connect deeply with a few people than have a bunch of slight acquaintances. Luckily, making close friends isn't that hard, since people are naturally attracted to you — they're soothed by your calming presence. Cool and collected, you rarely overreact. Instead, you think things through before com…

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, People!

Okay, I swear this was meant to be done like 4 plus..in the afternoon, according to my schedule in my pda..heh...coz I was trying my best to stick the schedule I have planned but somehow..I didn't include, as part of my schedule, my two attempts in trying to get the ants' nests. Bloody hell...

Anyway, it was still quite an accomplishment. And even though, I was running behind schedule..as yes..the tidying up the aftermath..wasn't easy also...I also was trying to do yet another layout for my blog for the..er...er..............okay, whatever number of times....but I am proud to say...I'm back, baby! Yahoo! Yes...for once, I don't have to credit someone else's work..yawns..I mean with all due respect, these people are talented and without them, I wouldn't have been able to steal..I mean......be inspired by the numerous original and creative ideas from them. But...rahayu won't rest until she finds something she can relate to..I don&#…

StranGe EncounteR

I am seriously not making this up...but it's to your discretion as to how you view this so-called 'supernatural' incident. I've always believed in the existence of the other world..crossing our paths..just as how I believe there is a formidable evil force..that stands tall to wreck destruction upon our lives. So..there are good 'people' and bad 'people' in that other world...and if we're lucky...we don't wanna have any chance encounter with the bad ones..but if we did..................

Okay..some previous nights, around 3 plus am in the morning, I was rolling around in my bed, cant sleep as usual..but all of my family members had fallen asleep. Then I guessed I finally fell asleep but something stirred me up. Okay..the last bit I dreamt about was someone looking for something frantically on my study table in the middle of the night, but I was looking on from the back..through my eyes..Then suddenly, I opened my eyes. Then it felt like my dream ca…

Was I too HaRsh on My Mum?

I tot I was being too harsh on my mum in terms of money when she asked me to withdraw some money for this weekend as she has a wedding function invitation which she will be going with my aunt and her toddler. She told me that she didn't have cash money left from the last time my father gave her some amt of salary. Okay..firstly, I've always talked about my paranoia that one day..our family runs out of cash. But now that I am a bit more matured in terms of finance..that you know the old adage....wealth doesnt lasts forever if you just spend and spend like no tomorrow. The thing is..now I think about tomorrow and having suffered going to school with little or no money or going with my friends with mere dollars in my wallet..I don't wanna suffer no more. Then we have those times where we get some kind of financial windfall (I don't mean the lottery though...haha..), like for instance, when we moved into the current house and we made quite a profit. Thought that the money …

So Hard to Say GOodbye

I had no idea why this song from Boyz II Men appeared in my dreams..but I guess, it's one gawd damn touching song..and I make it terrible for having to sing it..in my damn croaky voice..

anyhow, I just got this brilliant idea to download it and yeah..you wanna sing it? okay, i can onlie supply the lyrics so go do what you have to do and I provide the lyrics below..

"How do I say goodbye to what we had?
The good times that made us laugh
Outweigh the bad.
I thought we’d get to see forever
But forever’s gone away
It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.
I don’t know where this roadIs going to lead
All I know is where we’ve beenAnd what we’ve been through.
If we get to see tomorrowI hope it’s worth all the wait
It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.
And I’ll take with me the memories
To be my sunshine after the rain
It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.
And I’ll take with me the memories
To be my sunshine after the rain
It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday."

Bags Galore

Well....rahayu has done it again. I've configured some things and I dunno if I should say this but..I help my 'friend' go wireless! Took some time to configure coz apparently, the instructions sounded clear cut enough like which wire go to which port..yadah yadah..but at the end of the day (or should I say night)..sometimes, it takes a lot of trial and error.

Anyhow..it took like an hour plus, but hey...it's for a worthy cause. Now my 'friend' can go to the living room and surf the net. Woohoo!! Okay..I'm trying to comfort my 'friend' that even though 76 dollars is still quite some money to spend, it's still under 100 dollars plus free technical wizardry..haha..! She don't even need to spend yet another 100 more on cable wires..modem...surfing plan. Just that small box which is not even as commercialised as the one promoted by starhub (which, by the way...cost MORE than a hundred). Well...sometimes, brand name can be good..but sometimes, it&#…

Random Things At Home

Image
K..so I am a boring person...and yeah, who cares if people say i rot at home or what..i'll just say 'but at least i rot good..' hahah..

Anyway, I figured that since my blog lacks of pics coz i lack the enthusiasm to take pics...I tot hey, why not 'spice it up' a bit with some exclusive looks of my bedroom.

But this idea struck at a time when I just messed up my room up..haha...and it doesn't look as nice as those you see in the mag. And I was just flipping through this local mag on a singer and actress of the same age as me. But she's such a show-off lah...in real life...anyway, the media doesn't care about that coz she's err..'pretty'...and talent in what ways..onlie they know. And yeah...in the mag, also...showcased the walkway to her room..on the corridor lies panels of photos of herself..right up to her bedroom. She called it 'hall of fame'. i call it hall of lame....

Whatever. Anyway, at least she gave me the idea of telling peeps …

Frentic Mango Sales

Right...so I had to do something that was beyond my comprehension and had the guys baffled like what these women were doing? F.y.i, I went to my second mango sales. No, Geylang is not throwing huge discounts on the fruit but rather that famed shop MANGO. I used to think what was all this hype about this MANGO sales...and seeing some women wearing different coloured jersey blouses with their initials MNG and it was like some kind of trend. I tot heck..it'd never fit into them..not even the largest size. But I guess it's true to some extent that after a long while of hanging out with fashionitas colleagues, you will somehow....be pulled along the same route. And boy was I in for some fun..hahaha....!

Ok, when I was informed by my colleague about MANGO starting its sales on Thursday, which was today.....I was excited. K, in my 'desperateness' to own a MNG blouse after I got my salary this month, I bought the right size, right cut but wrong material. It was so clingy to my…

Photos Of David

Image
I realised that I forgot to put photos of him...in case you dont know the existence of CSI:Miami and David, of course.





These photos were taken from AXN Asia website, and I should credit them before they start sue-ing for taking his photos without permission. Like hello?! David poses for me onlie, k? And yes..that's his famous trademark, the sunglasses..which my mum..haiz, again....said it looked like the specs my dad wore when in the early eighties. I never asked her opinions.

I dream of David!

You wont believe this but i dreamt of david caruso yesterday and it was so real! I mean..how often have you been in a dream and you swore that it was so real..u could almost touch it. But for this one, *shrieks*...I got to hug him! AAaaaahhh...........!! Somebody slap me!

Ok..ok....i felt like it was so real because he came down to Singapore along with some other celebrities for some promo..which I had no idea what it was. Somehow, I got to know it through the axn website..which, by the way..is currently holding a contest regarding the who's big in csi...and no points for guessing who is BIG to me! woo hoo! Alrite..so I had it checked out like finally (!) but realised the contest was over. And no, it wasn't a competition to see who was BIG as a leader in CSI. It was just for this up and coming marathon of the best episodes in dramas and reality tv in axn channel 19. Anyway, they were going to show Lost Son, which would feature Tim Speedle's (Rory Cochrane) Death..one of the…

Cake Anyone?

Image
Right...today, is my off day and I spent one part of the day...playing Sims 2 University..after failing to bring back the damn career icons, though at one part, the graphics left behind gaping holes coz of my moi's failed intrusions. not to worry though...i decided not to relocate the files (what am i thinking? haven't i gone thru that before?! it's still a big no!)..Haiz..why can't all game plays be perfect?

Anyway...it was quite fun play the Sims University which I have been putting aside ever since my brother bought it as my birthday gift in September. I mean..heck..i bought nightlife..and what do you think we all prefer? studying or go hang out, find a date and get pregnant?...

SO yeah..i'm still in my 'i want to be a digital artist!' mode..and yes, this is another one of my creations. Any sense of loathiness....either you had food poisoning or you are having a hang over. NOTHING to do with this piece of shit..i mean, art..




I made every details of this gra…

Photoshop Remastered!

Image
hey..whole day i was messing around with photoshop coz suddenly, it became like a new found interest for me. I'm exploring stuffs that I would just thought is totally awesome but never actually got to do any art work with it except for a few photo montages that are like what..less than 5? I see people's artwork..boy do they blow me away! And what is better is that..a lot of these people are willing to share their trade secrets and if you follow their step by step guide, it really isn't that hard and you would have come up with something just as cool.

But of course, everything has to come with an added interest. Like I can intro you this thing but if it really isnt ur kind of game, then I can't really do much about it. But I tell ya...it's damn interesting. There's so much you can do with photoshop that you wouldn't believe that to actually master photoshop, you are not really a complete master....coz there will always be people who know certain tricks that w…

What a Nag!

It's so ridiculous having to live in this house full of rules imposed by....u guessed it...my mum. I think she's living in her own protective bubble while my father is living in his own dirty bubble. And she also likes to drag me in this picture and I just have no idea how every single day I could stand her unnecessary lectures about cleanliness and what else she has got to say. But in particular, cleanliness like personal hygiene and my own father's personal hygiene. When I come out of the bathroom....no...when I am STILL in the bathroom, she would suddenly come up to the door and knock and knock saying dont forget to wash the floor! And if I come out of the toilet, and fyi........I did wash the floor before leaving, she would always say how come so fast? And to me, it's already long lah but she would be say....washing the dishes or something...oh, and watching tv, and then if she noticed me leaving the bathroom, she tot I just made a quick exit. Of course I would pr…

Mz CurB Spending!

hello...

hey brand new month! perfect month too since it is after all...the bonus month! Yes..the long awaited time when you think your bank account had been almost sucked dry and you have this almost humongous 'ang pao' or token red packet to be given to you. Wow. And then..the 'kiasu' ol' me would be like..hrm.............................so what can i buy? But after doing the 'cannot escape' bill calculations and then segregation of the funds to various accounts (ahem..I did say i was 'kiasu' or someone who cannot just have one..heh)....I would also consider if I really need to buy that particular thing or rather..things. Yes, me, rahayu popz..the one who had always 'cringed' on seeing a blouse which costs even slightly more than 5 dollars..to be within the 'expensive' range. My fund is so limited when I minus off various payments and also to my mum..which is also considered part household part entertainment too as my mum likes to b…

Are You A Tech Wannabe?

Okay, the title may sound awfully cruel..haha..But in actual fact, it can be such a cruel reality too..Anyway, I know this may be a tad over already considering today was the last day of the Sitex Convention 2005 held in Expo. I mz tell you that I know it is S-something but never quite got it rite..it's like 'Si..Si...Suntec..Setec..Si whatever..' but I know it is such a tech haven for anyone in for any latest tech gadgetries or softwares and at the same time, you can hunt for bargains too since such conventions usually have special prices attached or with free gifts. heck, if you can get both, why not eh?

I must admite that I am relatively unfazed by all this 'wowza' factors coz I don't have that much of kaching kaching ($$) in my pockets anyway. And I am not so much caught up with the latest Ipod craze but if you ask me, I still am pretty much quite in touch with their developments and have done mental comparisons with I-pod and other leading mp3 brands as wel…
