My mum just asked me if my hair has grown thicker...and it was tied up just now. Well, I have uber sensitive hair that needs care and loving like the owner who couldnt be bothered with anything else unless they have gorgeous biceps. And! Would you believe it can throw a 'tantrum' by giving me completely lifeless hair even though I just washed my hair that morning but with a different shampoo coz my body shop anti dandruff ginger shampoo ran out. And that replacement shampoo was WAY more expensive! Oh, I and I have to watch the timing for the other hair products as well like the conditioner and the hair mask. If it's too long or too short for either one, wah thats it..it will be equivalent to me wasting my time washing my hair coz there will not be ANY different.
Anyway...remember I was saying I went to a bbq party recently? Yup, heres a shot. I didnt bring my camera..forgot to charge..hee. Thank goodness for Mariahs cameraphone..ahem..new cameraphone...with sony cybershot n…

Sleeping Typing

Man...I dont believe Im saying this but...I miss sleeping in the room during the attachment at poly! Sigh..and yesterday was the last day. Tomorrow dont know if i have the 'priviledge' to do the same thing again coz there will be someone else there. Drats..I don feel like deleting all 50 songs that I downloaded into the computer for some easy listening pleasure in between work..like what if I come back even for half a day? I am so gonna miss my solitude moments and hello to noisy little brats..


Well, today have to go back office for one whole freaking day of data entry coz you know why? They said I type fast enough..what lousy excuse to cover up for their freaking lazy asses. To them, it's a no brainer job coz they're f**kin' leaders and co leaders so this is not their job. Like hello? Even the boss on top of your f**kin' heads help to key in the reply slips from the optometrists k assholes..Their main job in the office is to call up the schools, do some co ordi…

Great Diet Tips

I came across this video..this is the quick version of diet tips. The other one is 11 minutes long. More detailed but more or less the same thing. No it's not some fad hollywood crazed diet but just sensible eating and exercise plan. There is also useful website about nutrition and can be used as tips on how to aid weight loss through sensible eating and you also know more about the food you eat like what kind of nutrients they provide for your body.

I was watching this video about how to wear heels and this was at a sidebar. Jz curious like now what..no carbs diet? the newly revamped atkins diet? the 'i-want-to-look-like-nicole-richie' diet? But as I watched it, turned out to be interesting. It's actually a no brainer but seriously, it is easier said than done but worth a try. I am not the best advisor around so this is the best I can give when it comes to healthy …

Gadget Geek

Wow...now I have upgraded myself from being an amateur computer geek..to...a gadget geek. Like why cant I be the next trendsetter or something..gah!! Okay, why this wail of nonsense..uhm..I just repaired my mp3 player which was not in working order for the last two weeks because I cannot take it anymore! Well, I converted my phone into a temporary mp3 player but everytime my mum calls..at times like 5 in an hour..and I had to plug out tat damn earphone..arggh! It's insanity I tell ya! I'll be imagining myself singing the song in a music video and only to have it cut short by mum's calls to check out my location the minute I step in and out of the train station and the bus so on and so forth after signing off from work. You know..her ability to judge my time is very the scary..


So there I was trying out the mp3 player again and yet the same prob crops out where even the reset button failed to work and my computer could not even detect it. That's it..out goes my set of sc…

Do you believe that guys' muscles do deflate a bit over the years? Okay Im not into those HUGe bulging muscles from hours of working out at the gym on a daily basis..na-uh. Im talking subtle..but still..hubba hubba. I watched this movie where oof..this guys' muscles..he had this sweet innocent face that you just want to cradle in your hand but fuyoh, at the same time maybe I'll be busy gripping his arms as a form of consoling him. But that movie was from 2003 when he was 23 years old. Now, four years later..well his form is still somewhat there but alamak! Apa da jadi? Where's your gorgeous biceps?







Okaylah..maybe he is too busy studying and doing theatre that his time for gym is affected. He's a harvard cum laude graduate..I dunno what the heck that last bit meant but sounds intelligent.

His name is steve sandvoss by the way..

Saturday Gathering

Guess what. I had just finished eating after midnight...a green apple and drinking plain water *yawns*...and you will never guess what I had just now? Oh....just the usual barbequed food..satay..otak otak..chicken wings...hotdogs..and nat's mum's noodles. I know I gorged on the barbequed (hello..I paid a huge share there..) food because my healthy living lifestyle has taken a break..hahaha..Heck, I think these people eat like mouse like okay..so not worth the money! Heh, am taking a dig at them.But basically now Im back to square one again..*yawns*...


Good thing I've got a companion...'hi mariah!' and we were like on the swing..watching an x rated video clip (oh.my.gawd...yes..oh.my.gawd). For once, they were not two men..if you know what I often watch...bwahahaha!! Shh..


Seriously, Mariah was right..it was gravity defying! It was worse than azam plonking himself beside me all of a sudden and the swing was not able to..er..swing as fast as before. Besides 'oh wha…

Monopoly Token

I've been feeling so unfit...two weeks of not going to the gym and having my ass stuck on to the big comfy swivel chair from morning until evening almost everyday..well...it felt like I have this whole ring of new 'cushion' round my waistline. Apparently I did not gain weight which I thought I did coz it felt that way. I even had two big meals..one at Seoul Garden and two weeks later..at Breeks..over the weekend but that made me watch what I eat over there coz I know I wont be able to move around much and gym is not like a few steps away from office or what. Still, I felt that 'cushion' feeling. Very the odd and my confidence level apparently went for a nose dive too even though time and time again I remind myself not to be feel that way. But I just cant shrug it off.


But it's true what they say in the magazines. If you have a period of rest for even a few days, your body will start to feel a tad bit sluggish and if you're bulking up on muscles, after a long…

Shameless Begging

OH my....someone is so freaking upset that she has been sent to another cluster instead where D is not the driver and apparently, this news was given to him by her with a heavy heart...Awwww....*sniggering*..


Where else for me..I'll get to be the leader next month so that means D will have to contact me or vice versa for him to pick up the equipments. And since next month is the holidays, we will be going mostly to childcare centres so that means to say I get to see D almost everyday coz..usually we are there for half a day only. WOoOOHooo!! Wow...next week will be the last of my attachment already.


Oh gawd. I feel like a squealing pre-pubescent idolising after some beyond reach superstar or something. I hope this overenthusiastic feeling will die down soon once I begin back my field attachment and I will be in the right state of mind already. And I will start gagging one more time everytime someone mention what a handsome driver he is. That will signal..'it's good to final…

Mummy's Compliments

Know what..

If there's little quirks people dont notice about me..usually..my mum does. She's been harping about my big nose my entire life and okay..so Im not the conventional beauty sort in comparison to the other malay 'beauties' in my age group parading their little freaking nose and petite bods in the whole of Singapore. I've come to accept that a long long time ago so it's not a wonder if Im not a head turner or what being in the public. Im okay. Too much attention is not good either.


While people may compliment me..whether about my hair..or the top Im wearing..whatever lah..my mum will do the complete opposite. Besides the big ol' nose thingey, she would rather want me to have short hair, thinks that my hair is thinning..and would usually be the only one who notices if I put on weight. And then being stuck in the clinic which means that I dont get to go out and walk around outside and have the tendency to sit throughout the day.


So now..being stuck aga…

I will see D!

Know what...

I just read a past entry from..get this..September 2005. Oh.My.Gawd. I didn't know I have the comic in me. And if you think that my entries are pretty long..heh..you should visit that period of time. I can say one thing though: Happy reading! That means to say..good luck..if you survive reading at least half of it. I was actually being joyous for finally being able to fit into a pair of jeans for my birthday that time when I treated my former classmates at breeks. Before that, the last pair of jeans that could actually fit me was waaaaayy back in secondary school. Ever since then, I could not fit into it and I felt very very very paranoid. Then that time, I had been trying to go to the gym for the last three months but unfortunately, fel ill later just one month before my birthday which sucked coz I quickly gained back the weight I had been trying my best to reduce. Yup, all uhm..three kilos of it. Yes I know it sounds pathetic enough for someone who tried to fit in gy…

Planning Ahead

hello!

well i treated mariah out yesterday. went a bit overbudget but it's okay i guess. i wanted to eat this prawn dunno what pasta but they changed the menu already so bummer...the one that had white sauce but comes with seafood cost me 14 dollars and to think I dont even eat fish. As health conscious as I try to be..Im not just 'big' on fish..heh..lousy. It was not what I wanted. But heck, since I wanted white sauce so much and it's definitely gonna be MONTHS ahead till my next breeks meal (if there is such an opportunity..)..oh what the hey. And to top it all off, I got myself a mango top which i have been harbouring such thoughts for months, but due to way too much distractions in between, I could not get one. So, finally I got myself a nice cute top in grey no less..which I had always wanted and it was going for 15 bucks only. I thought of getting one in blue but no rahayu.....dont count your luck so soon.


I've been watching my money outflow for the past one we…

True Single

Okay...me and my big mouth..now have to write about the real perspective...of being a single woman.


Well, I dont like to make this an issue or something..coz in the first place, it isnt an issue after all. But time and time again, I read about articles that singlehood is fun..woohoo! more freedom..woohoo! no guys to report to..woohoo! The people who write this kind of articles..they give me the impression that they are trying to tide over their past relationship by diving head on into singlehood without properly understanding that being single doesnt necessarily equate to a lifetime pursuit of forgotten happiness. And you know what? Once they start hopping on the bandwagon of a newfound relationship, they forgot what's it like being a single and they start becoming like a lovesick puppy who forget to spare some 'me' time for themselves.


For myself, there is pros and cons to everything..whether you're a single or attached. I mean..pfft..for all you know..you can even be…

Killer Quote

Arh....fark it. The row of twisties lined up at the shop downstairs and costing only a dollar per pack coz they are going to clear the shop soon..they're so freaking...tempting...the packets looked so...shiny....but dammit, I had to choose a green apple and a reduced sugar soyabean milk over it..dammit!


Sorry, Im a little cranky now especially coz I just took medicine before that (sadly forced by dear mummy again..) and cant think straight. But, still....shiny......packets...And I just got myself a copy of CLEO magazine through the mail and their special report? It's about food like carbs, fats and etc..oh..come on! give me a break here! Cant they write about what guys like about women or something?! It's like a sad reminder to me to bloody well focus on staying healthy. Yup, the effects of the cough medicine and the antibiotics are kicking in....



Well, bummer..have to return to office on wednesday and thursday but that's not a guarantee for me. I may have to be deployed…

Hair Raising Issue

Image
I watched deal or no deal..the game show which has hit our Singapore shores. Im not as interested as this as the f1 racing sports because we..are about to..be the host of a bevy of gorgeous men! woohoo!!!!! You will probably see me hanging around Marina quite often in September where the race will take place. Anyway about the show. Just now it was down to either $1 or $50 000 if she was to move on. That means not to make a deal. But! She had an offer by the 'bank' to get her suitcase which they claimed the banker had no idea how much is inside her first chosen suitcase (yeah..pfft..right).


You know what I thought? I thought she should not have made a deal coz...it was a bloody trick! But the mum saw 'stars' the minute she heard personally from Adrian Pang that the banker's offer was much higher than the previous offers. It was a trick dammit if they had bothered to read up the internet. The banker 'offered' the amount of $11 k which was a few thousand highe…

Off to the Doc

Well well well.....someone's got a windfall. But since she treated me out last Saturday, I should just do the honour and treat her back but this time, it will be at Breeks coz I love pasta. They're better tasting than bee hoon and healthier than yellow mee and kway teow even though I hate bee hoon. Well, it's a health thing..dont ask.


Anyway, I FINALLy went to the doctor to get medicine for my never ending cough. I swear if this thing is left untreated for yet another week, my respiratory system is gonna collapse soon. And oh, my mum threatened me saying that if I dont go the doctor, forget about entering the house. But the thing that spurred me to see the freakin doc was because my left side of the face was starting to get numb and swollen and I even developed a bit of migraine in the afternoon on the left side too. It brought me back the memory of suffering another form of side effect from a long period of illness similar to this one which ended up with me having a bad s…

Hypocrisy

Sometimes I feel that Im a bit too harsh on myself whether on food, money, health and etc but I dont want to do something and then end up regretting later and that is going to bite me even more. I read in a magazine that the ultimate makeover one can ever give to himself or herself is confidence. Being a girl is difficult especially if you're my age where you're supposed to be at your prime like look good, feel good and where the opposite sex tends to make quick judgment about you as well as the girls to see. I never used to care about all of this. I mean..who cares if guys didn't look my way. Who cares if those damn girls who give other girls the 'look' whether the ones they look at are ugly or prettier than them. NO matter how you felt like you dont care about what they think about you, sometimes we cant help it but think about what if they do pass judgments about you. Is it a good one? Is it a bad one?


Seriously, we're all hypocrites deep down inside. It take…

My Mothers' Day

Well im using my pda in the clinic where Im working now to type my journal coz I couldnt be bothered to buy a new journal, write halfway and forget its existence. We are talking trees which died for me but I disregard its existence. Wow...imagine that...deep thoughts coming from me on a Saturday morning. Argh! Life sucks when u have to work on a Saturday.


Tomorrow is Mothers' Day which doesnt really signify anything for me. Yes I know Im not a mum so what difference does it make to me. And neither do I hate my mum. She may cut me off from having a social life today by creating such a big fuss yesterday and Im still unhappy about it. Her words were so biting that if I was not strong enough, I would probably lash out coz we're talking about my dignity here.


How can she say Im some flirtatious woman doing nothing but gawk at guys. Do I even dress up like some slut and making eyes at any men for some kind of attraction? How can she not know me enough that she didn't raise a dau…

A Different Love

well...i actually cried listening to this song coz it's about lost forbidden love and so freaking touching if you know the storyline of the movie.


It's about the love between a mormon on a missionary trip in LA and a promiscuous party animal who leads a carefree life. Initially, it was just over a bet of $50 to sleep with one of the mormons who are staunch religious believers but just as he was about to successfully seduce the mormon, he got an earful instead on how shallow he was. He changed thereafter thinking what if the mormon was right and he helped out as a volunteer at a shelter for people with AIDs and found out there is more to life than just parties and getting laid. He befriended a guy dying of AIDs over at the shelter and slowly began to fall in love with the mormon who was unlike his other 'conquests' through their friendship but didnt know that he would get the mormon into trouble over a 'kiss'. That poor mormon tried to commit suicide when sent b…

Digital Cameras

Okaylah, i'll be nice and let you in on the minimum requirements. Should aim for at least a 6 megapixels, a screen size of at least 3.1 inches or the bigger the better and not solely because you can see better. It is because it wont try to 'squeeze' in that 6 megapixels into a small screen or you will end up with a lower quality image even though it may not seem that 'low' if viewed on the screen but the effect is amplified once you upload the pics to your computer. Aim for an optical zoom instead of digital zoom even though nowadays, cameras seem to offer the two but digital zoom is rendered 'useless' because the more zoom you use, the lower quality it becomes. So at least aim for a 3x optical zoom which is equivalent to a 34-102mm lens. But! Do check out the extremities of both end of the zoom to see if there is any 'distortion' to the image.


Next, for a better shot that is not overexposed and with less 'noise', it must have a maximum sensi…

Great Review Mag

Great. I'm D's helpline even if Im not outfield. I remember him going to me if he needs help with his scheduling like begging to finish at a certain time in order to make his pick up of equipments run more smoothly knowing other teams may either have some problems with their replication or uploading of data or simply quite slow. So if he can 'beg' me to finish at a certain time, which he knows I can and how my team can pretty much handle replication problems through trial and error basis, he will do that to me. Besides, other teams will probably give him hell if he tries to beg coz that will mean hurrying them up. Well..what makes you think I dont feel the pressure?!! Still I dont promise him anything coz I would say that it's not my problem if he got other duties to do so he wants me to hurry up..heh...but he never takes me seriously! The nerves...and he will come at the time he had wanted me to finish up. AND Im also his informer if the teams are ready for his la…

D Encounter

hello! ey, guess what? i saw the bugger yesterday! no, I didnt go out and purposely meet D or something but he came to deliver things to my clinic. I kinda suspected he will be sent here since he IS the most hardworking of the lot..heh..no wonder when i spot a message in the morning like before 8.30am it did flash across my thought that it could be him but nay, I am not at field what for him to tease why the heck im late. It was like when I saw him outside at the reception that it occured to me like oh shit..it was him after all and I didnt check coz suddenly there was a stream of patients coming in one by one. Apparently he wanted to know what level I was at before he made a move here which he could easily find out but maybe just to let me know he was coming.


Okay, he was his usual self...work one side...teasing me another side..and me? well, Im my usual self too. Believe it or not, if he is around, I cant tease him as well as I do on the phone via text messages as if Im so freakin sh…

Jail Time or Free Time

okay so Mariah dared me to message D because...........let's say he met with a weetle bit of incident..*sniggers*..he stepped on dog poo..wahahahaha!!! I just wanted to let go of that incident of which the information was supplied by my covering officer for the clinic duty when she came for attachment. On the other hand, I didnt want to act despo and wanted to perform my 'detention' at the clinic to a T. That means no messaging to D for a month! Wah, that sounds worse than telling my mum Im going out on a coming Saturday. But Mariah wanted to know his reaction..which I had predicted that he would deny (which he did actually) but didnt forsee that he would 'throw' it back at my face. I mean..the tit for tat thingey..not throw dog poo at me.


I could almost puke back all my breakfast of two curry buns and a packet of milo when he said that he didnt step on it and that she smelled wrongly. It came from his breath instead coz that morning he ate dog poo. Gawd!!! Can he b…

Right Conclusion

Seriously, if you live in a country like Singapore where the choice of dramas and tv movies are limited and based on popularity...forget shows that do not have famous people in them. Well, there are many out there worth watching but NOoOOOoo...we can only watch trashy stuffs. So now I have to be contented with watching snippets from You Tube which were made by fans of the dramas or movies but ah, have to tolerate the accompanying background music which drain out the conversations totally. Unless you're into lip reading. Some do have conversational clips which kinda gave you an idea what the movie is all about. The latest one..well..not really the latest...coz I watched it previously, I actually bothered to plough through the series of fan vids and then finally know what is the actual conclusion. I seriously thought the guy was a goner already with him attempting to commit suicide by slashing his..*gulp*..wrists..and like wow..there goes another sweet baby face hunkalicious guy who…
