Reflections

Reflections….

Do i need to do this? what have i done? seriously….nothing much?!This year…flew by in a blur blur blur stage..but the things i can recall so far..

First, you have the regular drinks sessions with your girlfriend, one in particular, not that i’m complaining..but too much of it…u know, is just Too much!!! 😛 Is not about her, her company is great!! It’s just the place.

Next, you have the anime/manga chase…just a few sessions of this anime ‘Inuyasha’ got me hooked onto the anime craze. There’s a whole world out there of anime.. you realise there’s so much other serious & better anime out there, like ‘Bleach’, ‘Full Metal Alchemists’, depressing ones like ‘Neon Genesis’, ‘Fruits Basket’ & silly ones that make you want to throw shoes @ the tv – like ‘Fushigi Yuugi’. Recent outings with friends, realise i’ve got other grown-up friends who’re anime addicts as well..! & I thought i’m the only one…that’s living in the shadows.

Thirdly, did a bit of jet-setting lifestyle – for work & leisure. Seems to achieve quite a bit here – geneva, brussels, brugge, paris, madrid, jakarta (yucks!)…the rest of the places were good thou!
adapting to the weather & food…these places have so much more to offer than our sunny island SGP here! can afford to dabble in the different types of clothing…ha.

Seems like life has slowly evolve into another kind – hen’s nights, weddings, baby showers! OMG…din realise until someone in her 40s say : “wa..such a aunty lifestyle you have!!” So ironic right?! But then, its good that some of us has moved to another stage…& in good condition too!

What are Ya doing on NEw YEar’s Eve??!

What are Ya doing on New YEar’s Eve??!
This is THE sentence that’s been hanging out of everyone’s mouth at this period…the same sentence that never seems to change througout these years.. Just a matter of who’s asking.
This year passed extremely fast…faster than i can count how much money i spent!
i don’t have any plans this year, not much at the moment..Gone were the days..where i looked forward to spend Countdown with friends – in whatever state we are – sober/knock out/puky etc. Maybe as the more countdowns i do, the nearer i am to the 3 0 figure? or maybe my friends have passed the 30 yr stage, & they’ve toned down a lot..no energy to qiong, that’s what they say. Now, all of us prefer somewhere quiet to chill out. That’s the magic word – chill out.
No matter what options we choose, we’ll still be stuck in the mad crowd disease….as everybody is out there to do their own countdown – a countdown to the end of a bad year, or a countdown to a better year?!

New Diary for New Year














A New Diary

Gone were the days where all appointments are made in the once-popular Palm.
Used to have the Palm Zire …was the ‘in’ thing then. After a few years of using it, there’s something missing..
Writing & doodling something by hand in a diary than in a palm just felt so different.
Yes, it was useful by putting a password on it to prevent unathorised access.. but that was it – nothing more.

Din really use the palm much in the end except for these purposes:

  • making appointments
  • making short notes
  • gossiping in a meeting (by using the Notepad)
  • taking pictures

The decision to go back to the primitive age of jotting down every thoughts & appointments, was accelerated by this catalyst : the diary under the Studio Ghibli collection – “My Neighbout Totoro” -“Long Mao” a mystical creature in the forest.

This is a must have for me…with nice demin jacket & cool pictures.

In case you don’t know…Studio Ghibli has a series of great animation movies – most recent years “Howl’s Moving Castle”, “Spirited Away”, my all-time fav ” Princess Monokoke”.. Now that is something i really want to have..

Christmas Day

Finally…Christmas is here!

Were looking around for hi-teas
Plenty of choice…but ended up at Scotts Lounge @ Hyatt.
Costs ard $38+++ per pax, have been there. This can be said as a safe choice, since habe been there in 2002.
The spread has generally improved…tasted better than the last time i was there (either that or my memory is actually failing me)

Am glad that I was with great company, except this minor irritant

But then, to celebrate ‘christmas’ with friends, is really incomplete, without family!
Thanks to my auntie, she had invited the whole ching- gang family to her place again! & prepared the best sumptious Turkey effortlessly agaiN! yeh!!

ManGo – Costs & Effects

MANGO – Co$t & EffEct$

As a self-declared die-hard Mango sale Fan (of few years’ status), have gladly took leave to join in the MangO binnually sale..!

Co$T & EffEct$

  1. Waking up earlier than usual in the morning
  2. Got a hole in the pocket, as expected ( but not as bad as previous years!)
  3. Got really bad foot-ache/sole ache, due to wearing High Heel shoes (aka WRONG TYPE) of shoes ..somebody slap my face pleeessssssssse..
  4. FOUR Coffee Sessions, due to bad shoes again! 1st coffee session started just right after only ONE mango store..(poor stamina)
  5. Cab Fare – Too much Stuff too carry + bad foot ache
  6. Mentally Stress out – too much stuff to buy, but too little money! (sob..sob..)
  7. Feet Ache that resulted not even able to WALK at home!

Conclusion : sale was still kind of worth it…but not as great as previous sales. Learnt my lesson, next time wear slippers or proper shoes. But on the other hand..thought is a good thing to have coffee out in the Cafes on a weekday morning when you’re supposed to be working!!

MANGO SALE

MANGO SALE

The Sale I’ve been waiting for iS Finally Here!

Tomorrow’s the day..where I’ll be squeezing with whole loads of other MangO ‘Siao'(translate: Crazy) gals out there in the stores.
Remember the last few sales…that was complete madness..squeeze squeeze squeeze!!!! The 1st sale was actually came out in the news …considering it a ‘rare’ sight in the period of economy downturn then with retrenchments everywhere. Women are actually squeezing through the narrow stores just to grab the items…Sometimes, it feels like almost all the whole SGP female society is down there.

In case, you don’t know..i’ll be on leave for the Sale. Yes!!!! can or not? 😛

My friends wondered why i would want to take leave for such a sale! but somehow, after some time, they finally figured out why. Try showing up in the stores after 3 days, & you’re practically left with the not-so-attractive items. …oooooh…heart pain ok!

Anyway, I’ll be there to catch a bit of action!

if you see me busying away & ignoring you…Hey! pardon ME! I need to put 100% concentration to GRAB my fav items!

Saturday NighT Fever

Was scheduled for a full day work on a Saturday.
Majorly upset! Can’t believe it…that means I left with only 1 poor sunday to rest!!
Decide to fully utilise the night…went on a christmas shopping spree!
(Great for those who’ll be receiving for me yah?!)

Decided to check out the ‘permanent’ eyeliner by Anna Sui.
Can you imagine, this eyeliner actually stayed on like a permanent marker on my friend’s face till the next morning..in 1 neat line..after a HEN’s NIGHT out!!                                   was totally impressed…this eyeliner must have some ‘ingredients’ as close to a ‘marker’.

In the end..was so enticed by the freebies – the cute organiser. I ended up buying the marker..oops, THE EYELINER, blue mascara, & shiny turqoise nail polish..Hey, this is the party season..isnt’ that justifiable to buy such cute staff?
