you get to see the true self of the people around you.
like its wrong to leave the place.
once the "news" break loose, everyone treats you different.
as though you've betrayed them.
People come, people go.
If its time to move on or
if there is a better offer,
Dun act like a saint.
Beside the work fulfillment, learning opportunity, working environment,
one has to eat, pay bills, and survive.
Its simple as that, just that.

This time was worse, it came with a high fever.
The panadol extra is of no help.
I went to my friendly family doc yday morn and he gave me a jab
Friendly Doc (FD): Since the tonsillities has been around since Dec and all other antibiotics failed, I'll have to give you a jab to wack all the virus.
*FA like the way he said wack the virus*
FA: I'm down with fever, is it advisable?
FD: The jab will wack the fever as well. Dun worry, just relax, you are a tough girl. See its written on you tee.
*FA was wearing her rover scout tee which says - Life's tough, we are tougher *
FD: No drug allegy huh?
After the jab, I made payment at the counter only to realize that I didn't brought enough cash with me.
I went to the ATM machine next door to withdraw.
While in Q, I can feel the powerful jab kicking in action....
so powerful that the so-called tough girl dropped her wallet and almost fainted,
not to mentioned that her ATM card was confiscated by the password-sensitive machine.
FA is not that tough after all.
FD: hai yo, why you never tell me you haven't had breakfast? Dun worry, drink some glucose and you will be alright. Remember, you are a tough girl....
the jab is really powerful coz after a few hours, my fever is gone, I dun feel the pain on my tonsil though the swell is yet to subside, but I'm back at work today...
I really need to do something to my tonsil....
No! dun ask me to go for the OP.
It will never be consider as an option.
Perhaps I should cut down on fag and booze...
Mummy was so pissed with me that she doesn't want to go to the HK trip anymore....
wants me to recuperate before I start my new job.
I is ke lian, terrible sick and still have to endure her scolding/nagging while making our way back home. (too weak so she came to fetch me from the clinic)

It seems like I never learned my lesson.
The numbers of times I risk myself into the same shit just never stop.
I kept telling myself maybe this one is different not knowing that in fact everyone is the same.
Same old scumbag!
I heed some advice that I should opened up and not be torment by the hurtful experience from the past relationship.
And so I thought, alright, why not, I shouldn't be living in the history.
You know what?!
Not only that I haven't met someone who we can walk the journey, I became vulnerable to all those jerks who hurt me again and again.
Enough is enough!
To hell with all these!
I is disappointed!
The only glimpse of hope that I have with me is shattered!
Totally gone and wouldn't be found again I guess.
When one bears no hope, he will have to channel whatever leftover energy to other areas so as to keep one going.
I foresee this coming......
85years, is a long wait
to hell with the long wait,
the BOYS won!
the usual 15mins walked to the work this morning,
saw a car with lots of MU collectibles in the interior
I looked around for the owner,
thinking to give him a pat on the shoulder
but he/she was no where found
up to the second place in EPL placing.

Exploring to advertise in their magazine.
the usual presentation-rate card-package-PR routine.
and so I realize that the local merchants really suck the expat dry.
Most rely on expat as thats where their main bulk of business come from.
so my vendor was quoting one of her client, whose wine shop in located at dempsey road, that they don't need the local to patronize. In fact they don't welcome them. They only need the expats as they have high spending power.
kinda pissed me off!
I seriously don't understand why the local server/merchant are sucking up to the expats.
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against them.
We locals are here, here as in HERE, read it!
We live here, breath the same air as you.
But the expats?
How long are they staying here?
1 year? 2 years?
Sooner or later, they will return to where they come from.
Why treat the local and expats differently?
Yes I do agree that they have high spending power,
but surely you don'y need to belittle the local.
and yes I'll boycott that wine shop in dempsey (if you know which one I'm refering to) Seriously, the wine are ridiculously priced! The percent they marked up, I wanna kill them. Service is also bad. Moreover, the label there aren't fantastic.
If you need to purchase in bulk or for personal consumption, I can get it at a better rate.
And for those expats, please, for goodness sake, dun pay for overpriced furniture. The cost price is really low.

I recently found out this guy who used to "like" me has a shift in his interest.
He is dating men now!
this explain the "" in the first statement.
love is an affection
an expression of feelings
who says man can only express his love to a lady?
I dun oppose male/male or female/female relationship
Dun get me wrong, I'm not promoting same gender relationship
let me correct myself I for love not lust.
love to love
love to lust
no I'm not disappointed
but am glad that he is brave to express his feelings,
his true self
isn't it sad when one has no courage to love?
live not a regrettful life
a self fulfilling one

No hair, so she has to wear a hat
Relative and friend visting (to collect angbao)
Her new found friend...
Babies are adorable!
I want to kidnap one myself!
Went to river angbao and bought this
she is fascinated with it!
See I tell you, no hair dun believe...
We calculated her ang bao collection yday.
Fwah her collection is my 2years collection...
Fayth is rich girl!
(of coz not as rich as the luckyass TOTO winners! Damn!)
I realize that when anyone see a baby hairless,
they always think that it is a boy....
why har, anyone?
The only place in my office building where I can satisfy my shopping urge.
Cheap trill lah dey...
Hello?! I can't be buying furniture every now and then....where got space?!
Kit Kat lemon cheesecake flavour

5. Lemon cheesecake
Should I get a PDA phone? or a PDA and a phone?
My basic needs for a phone...
1) Be able to call and SMS
2) No reception problem and definetly no muffled voice(very impt!)
3) Long battery life
4) Able to take decent pix (this is secondary since I'm always armed with my digicam)
5) Listen to mp3 (not a must but if the phone allows, its a bonus)
Then again, FA is forever blur and forgetful-ness
so she needs a secretary / kind patience soul to remind her.
And since I'm w/o a bf and with my pathetic pay,
I dun think I can afford a secretary,
so I guess a PDA should do the job.
Basically, I move around, I need access to the emails pretty often.
And my job, and maybe the new one,
required me to do a lot of coordination work
(meeting dateline that is)
Please advice me on which to get.
We celebrated chinese V-day (元宵) in a Japanese way.
SIL struck TOTO!!!!!
yah... I wished she was 1 of the 9 lucky-ass winners!
Enjoyable dinner with Daddy's cramp face when we made him eat maguro sashimi.
FA : 唉哟! 跟家里的鱼生一样嘛...
Daddy: 家里的鱼生哪有放那个'青青'的?!!! *gulped down 2 cup of green tea*
Mummy's fav was the soft shell crab, scallop wing, salmon belly soup and cha soba.
We also ordered sushi for them....
Daddy: 日本人跟泰国人一样 hor.... 都喜欢吃糯米饭...
FA, Kor & SIL : !!!!!!! *crow fly across*
But they still prefer Indo food...
so much for blabbering about how House of Lam 鱼生 is different from those 鱼生 that most F&B outlet offers.
Presenting.... House of Lam 超级美味鱼生 (when I say 鱼, I meant every mouth has at least 4-5 slices of 1cm thick fish)
We used 4 fishes for this mouther-watering delicacy.
We are never sleFISH.....
and the old saying which goes 情场失意,赌场得意....
I won 70bucks from mahjong last night,

great movie...for a local production. I teared... very touching mah.
the boys have grown up. Facing new set of problems, and of coz more 靓仔
a lot of thoughts aft the movie.
The movie discuss a lot of key parent-child issue in a humourous manner.
Points which are so important and easily understandable that most overlooked.
In my point of view, the key to a better parent-child relationship is communication.
Never judge based of your perspective.
I 'analyse' my relationship with my parent.
My parent are traditional chinese educated kids, bounded with traditional asian family values. Meaning that they are those whom seldom (maybe not) uttered 'I Love You' to their kids, and most probably not to their spouses.
I've gone thru a rollercoasterlistic teenage phase.
The nobody-seems-to-understand-me phase.
Times when I tried to 'talk' to my parents, I ended up get scolded.
Once bitten twice shy, I began to kept most of the things to myself, even up to date.
My mum kan cheong spider character wrosen the scenerio.
I thought I better kept my mouth shut. I began to adpot the 少知为妙 mechanics.
Thank God! I got to know ah chuan, my 干哥哥. He had been very supportive towards me and always lend a listening ear / shoulder to cry on to me. I can never imagine if I had not know him. I'll probable dropped outta school.
My rollercoaster teeange years definetly serve as a precious experience when I get 'promoted' to a parent.

because in order to look good, we torture ourselves into things that totally dun fit.
my toes, toenails, feet, muscle hurts like crazy....
I bought a pair of pointed heels a mth ago. The size 6 fit was juz right...alright its a little tight...and the size 7 is too loose. So the saleperson use a footlike tool to expand the front and it totally fit well.
But I left it in the shoebox, conveniently forgotten about the new pair until the Tuesday morn when I fret over what to wear and found the "darling". I was tortured on thw whole day, coz somehow or rather the heel contract back to its original size. I suspect the effect from direct afternoon sun was the main culprit.
But yday, I wore the same evil heel again? Why? becoz it totally matches my outfit. I weighed look good vs pain level and I let vainity took control. Stupid me! I couldn't care less about my feet.
U can't imagine that for every step I took, I curse and swear beneath my breath and yet I flashed the PR smile when I met all the guest during the company Loh Hei Lunch at Grand Corthorne Waterfront.
My use-to-be beautiful feet is now infested with blister scar....all from those "nice" footwear that I bought base on the design and not whether its comfortable.
I must admit, girls like me should be shot! We dun deserve any sympathy.
