Had a photoshoot with 2 photographers at HortPark this morning. It was indeed hot there. Lots of greenary and flowers. Which girl wouldn't get excited seeing flowers all over the place? There were of course bees, dragonflies and butterflies. There were glasshouses filled with exotic plants, lots of colourful flowers in there but no access to visitors. The temperature in the glasshouses were low specially for the plants. I would love to explore what's inside. Love the white little cage-like pavilion. Wait till I upload the pictures.
Had lunch at Xin Wang Anchorpoint. Poor service, waitied for more than 15mins for the drinks to be served. So unlike my experience at the outlets in Cineleisure or Marina Square. Thank you for the photographers' lunch treat.
Got a ride home and my eyes were already dry because of the contact lens.
Toppled my OPI nail polish on the floor and spent like an hour clearing up the mass. Won't dare to buy any nail polish anymore. My wrist was cramped, blood circulation to my head was not good because I was all the while looking at the floor. I spent more energy on cleaning the floor than a photoshoot. Luckily I have mum and CJZ to help me get rid of those stains.
Got to continue my HK drama and have dinner.
Had lunch at Subway with CJZ and off to meet KZ for karaoke. Once again, she was late for 15mins.
She grabbed a chicken cutlet from a Taiwanese stall and sat outside Topone for her to finish her lunch. Finally entered our karaoke room at about 1pm.
We had diffculty finding songs to sing instead of lacking of time to finish what we wanted to sing. That's probably the problem when there's only 2 of us. Where's LL?
When KZ was singing, I was looking at myself in the little mirror.Realised that I looked as if I wearing a wig. Perhaps I am just not used to this new hairstyle.
Went for steamboat dinner at one of those restaurants. It was our craving. If I didn't miscalculated, I ate 2.5 plates of green vegetables. I can't really survive without vegetables since young.
Went shopping at Rubi and BMG. I bought a pair of sandals and some undergarments. Ya, I know I spent money again. Somebody should just lock me at home.
Took bus 7 back, traffic jam at Penang Road due to Thaipusam. There were really a large number of Indians suurounding the area. Managed to snap 2 pictures.

Did some slides for the upcoming talk and all the necessary follow-up to do.
Had 2 steamed buns for dinner before going for hair cut and treatment.

Was supposed to go KKH with colleagues to visit our newly promoted mummy but due to few of us who are free, I gave my chance to another colleague. Stayed in the office playing sudoku till I felt sleepy at the reception.
Went Orchard with 2 managers to check pricing for sandwiches. Had lunch at Lucky Plaza, wanton mee again. The char siew was really good and the dumplings were filled with ingredients too.
Back in office at 2:30pm. Ran errands, replied e-mails and continued my sudoku. Latest news from manager that the new position of "Healthy Volunteer Coordinator" is the job which I probably will take. Sounds better than "Recruiter" but the name is simply too long to even print on name tag. I probably get to distribute namecards too.
Met G at Lido for movie. He surprised me by wearing contacts instead of glasses. I still find him better-looking with glasses. Shared an ice-cream cup of Honey Toffee and Malt with him before going Mac for dinner. Watched "Daybreakers" and the seats were really bad. Hopefully it's not going to give me backache and no bloody dream tonight. Walked Orchard for a while and G sent me home.
No HK drama tonight. Tired eyes are enough for me.to fall into deep sleep. Should I go for hair treatment and perhaps a hair cut tomorrow?

Morning was busy therefore time flew. Had to buy kueh from Bengawan Solo, prepare the bak kua and drinks, set up the laptop and projector, push chairs into the meeting room. Furthermore, I had to take on the role of a receptionist for the receptionist was on medical leave. Walked in and out of the unit like it's my house. And now that I am doing recruitment for healthy volunteers, I have even more work to do. In conclusion, I did the work of 3 positions today. AA, recruiter and receptionist.
Most probably I would be changing my job position to a recruiter since my supervisor is impressed with my performance, recruiting healthy volunteers and organising talks. Anyway, I have started reading up on marketing and it's so dry. Hands-on is still more interesting.
Went to the post office to send out some posters and brochures. Bought lunch at TBM and back office. Fried hokkien mee again.
The usual routine of replying e-mails, picking up phonecalls and running errands.
Back home for dinner. The petai from NTUC doesn't taste better than those from Giant. Giant still has the better baby kailan and petai.
Finally period is almost over but my migraine is here. A sign that my white hair is growing.
Monday, January 25, 2010
Afternoon flew past as I was really working. I don't always slack at work alright? Workload is really increasing and I have no time for movie sessions during working hours. Still yet to read the borrowed book on marketing because I am lazy.
Saw Mr. Six while walking to MRT station. His usual headband but he was wearing a checkered sarong over his black pants. What good fashion sense he has.
Went Orchard to meet G after work. Drove to Commonwealth for dinner. While waiting for the traffic light to turn green, I was dared to do something when the police car was in front of us. I know there's no way I would get caught and so I took the small challenge.
Had Fish Slice Beehoon Soup and a different kind of Hor Fun. It's a mixture of beehoon and kway tiao. Went home after dinner and I should be turning in early.
I am still having weird dreams until today. Even my colleagues all know about this. Am I using my brain too much during the day?

Above are the dresses I received from My Flair Lady today. More colourful dresses for the next collection. Get ready to shop for CNY and Valentine's Day.
Accompanied CJZ to shop at IMM and visited KZ at work. Bought a pink long tank top from Fox. If not for the period, I would have stayed there longer.
Home for dinner. Wanted to have dinner at New York New York but have to save money so next time. Will be meeting LL and KZ at Starbucks later.
Friday, January 22, 2010
Was chatting with G on Facebook in the morning. Finally I saw him online after he was away for days. I still tend to look at the Facebook Chat to see if he's online.
Was driven to Vivocity by a colleague to pack lunch. My main motive was to look for ManStuff. Bought the wrong issue, it's supposed to be issue 2 and not 3. But it's ok, at least I have the soft copy of the photos. Bought Crispy Egg Noodle from Kopitiam and back to workplace.
Edited some papers at work and went to collect documents again. I have been walking too much lately. My nerves are becoming obvious.
Back home to shower and out to IMM with CSX. It's actually to escape from a family event. Poor CJZ was left behind by us. Supposedly to meet KZ for pool unfortunately she had something on.
She bought her stationery at Popular and we went Ajisen for dinner. It's obvious that my appetite has shrinked since I could no longer finish the bowl of noodles. Went into Fox, thinking of using the $10 voucher but nothing caught my eye. It was so cold that both of us were shivering. Had to go out of the shopping centre for a while to gain heat. Bought a pair of grey pumps from Cotton On and back home at 10pm.
Got to sleep for a photoshoot tomorrow at my ex-colleague's house. Can't wait to receive the 2 dresses too.
Thursday, January 21, 2010
Went Rochor Centre to pack Ayam Penyet with a colleague. Even the uncle remembers me. Enjoyed lunch in the lounge and the chilli was so spicy. The chicken was a little salty but still tasty.
Went to collect documents twice. Partly was to digest my heavy lunch.
After work, went to Happy Realm to buy dinner. Fried rice, hor fun and fried carrot cake. I hate the haversacks carried by commuters in the train. They just ccupy too much space.
Heard a secondary school girl talking about her boyfriend who happens to have the same name as G. A reminder again. I do hope he will be back soon.
A photographer said I reminded him of the korean star Tae Yeon. Do I?
Wednesday, January 20, 2010
My nausea came back. Not sure if it's because of coffee or I starved myself for too long. Have to test it out so I intend to stop consuming coffee, reduce caffeine at the same time. So, I only had 2 slices of pandan chiffon for lunch. Wasted almost the entire SouperValue Value. Don't dare to eat too much in case I vomit.
Afternoon ended pretty fast with a meeting. Cleared up some final work and home sweet home.
Watched the last 2 episodes of 疑情别恋 and it's time to sleep. Hopefully I won't be dreaming tonight or at least let it be some sweet things.
Probably because I know you are not anywhere near me, I was reminded of you more than usual. Little things like your smile and gestures slipped into my mind especially when I was walking home. Like what people always say, you won't realise how much you miss a person until you are away from him or her.
Tuesday, January 19, 2010
Was on the phone with KZ and she was telling me that she saw that group of girls we always gossiped about. Finally she got to see them in real person after all the pictures and description. Ah lians as she described.
Had McSpicy for lunch. A doctor from another department actually went into my room, sat on my chair without my permission. He's not even supposed to appear at that part of the unit. I really flared up that my face was in red. How could someone so educated don't even know what's respect and privacy?
Had a meeting to tidy up some presentation slides and finally have the time to watch "The Hangover". Hilarious but quite educational. Beware of those bachelor's and bachelorette's party which can destroy your dream wedding. You won't want to risk losing that diamond ring on your finger.
I ran almost the entire way from SGH to Outram MRT, Orchard MRT to Taka after work to meet G. Of course I was panting like crazy. I probably used up the energy from lunch that I had to walk slowly from Taka to Lucky Plaza. Sat in Mac to rest, just in case I get wobbly legs or fainting spell. We only met like 0.5hour and parted at Holland Village.
Got stepped on my toes again in the bus. Really hurt and internal bleeding again. I should have took a cab home and I wouldn't have to suffer. Climbed 12 levels of stairs back home, I just want to feel better after a moody day. Definitely not because of work, I never suffer at current workplace where I have colleagues like family.
Skipped dinner since I don't hear my stomach growling. Chatted on the phone with Jerry for a while. Too bad I was physically and emotionally dread or else I would have joined the group of them. I shall turn in early tonight for a much better tomorrow.
Whatever that comes too fast, ends too fast. I feel like letting things go so I won't feel as if I am suffering from depression. Have been too heavy on my mind because I didn't talk it out. And the reason why I avoid it? Talking about it or simply thinking about it gives me watery eyes. I am unsure if whatever I'm doing now is worthwhile. It's probably time to make things clear and let go if it's the best thing to do. Disappointment.

Met ML for shopping at Orchard today. While waiting for her, I had ice-cream from Marvellous Cream again. Then walked to Heeren to meet her.
We had lunch at Waraku, it was my craving but her treat. Thank you for the filling lunch! Can't finish the gratin and the soup pasta, too creamy for me. Passed her the birthday gift too. Glad that it was a surprise for her.
Headed to Far East Plaza for shopping. She bought a dress and a bag while I got fake eyelashes. Decided to buy a pair of under eyelashes to try. Big eyes here I come.
We then walked from shopping mall to shopping mall Finally ended up in Coffee Club for a break. Shared the huge Mud Pie with ML. Regret trying the Banana Butterscotch Latte.
Bought sportswear from Adidas like finally. Took me so long to get the size right. Now I am all ready for dance classes.

Supposedly to meet someone at lunchtime but pigeons were let off the cage. Luckily I decided to buy lunch at TBP with colleagues or else I could have been an idiot waiting all afternoon for a reply.
Bought Bandito Pocket Meal from KFC for lunch. Went Watsons to look for a cream called "Mederma". It's known to reduce the visibility of scars caused by injuries, burns or acne. Quite good reviews about it as I read online. Costs about $34 at Watsons. You can find it at Guardian as well.
Back office and had more work to do. I should probably just borrow the book on Marketing from my colleague, no harm reading right? It would help in my work performance and get things done faster. Who knows I can do business as well?
Knocked off and back home for dinner. Helped CSX to trim her thick and black eyebrows.
Will be a dancer for tomorrow's modelling assignment. Time should pass faster being a dancer than to sell shots in a club.

Tuesday, January 12, 2010
Ran some errands and bought a waffle for tea time. I know it's too high in calories to have a waffle as snack but it has been too long since I ate one.
Some furnishing was done at workplace and more to come. Lots of drilling and knocking to disturb me.
I have got this pimple in between my eyebrows few days ago. Having itchy fingers, I squeezed it yesterday and now it's red due to the blood clot. Serve me right for being impatient to let it recover on its own. I look like a married indian woman now and this is going to persist for maybe a week. No pimple cream is going to help at this stage.
Casting tomorrow evening at Eleganz for a themed photoshoot.
Monday, January 11, 2010
At GWC, I saw 2 little caucasian girls who looked like the baby dolls I used to play. Blue eyes and curly blonde hair. Another caucasian blonde boy was lying on the floor in a restaurant with his face on the floor too. He didn't feel any dirt or uncomfortable based on his smile. I would have screamed at him if he's my son.
My colleague brought her 1.5yr old daughter to meet us in the afternoon. How I wish I have big eyes like hers. We all had fun just watching her. She sure had the energy to run around the department like in a playground. My colleagues and I always enjoyed looking at her photos, with her cheeky expression. I do think that my cancer characteristics are more prominent recently, especially about the family-orientated description.
Went to meet someone after work. Definitely good that things are getting well. Took 2 buses to get home and I literally slept throughout the journey on the transferred bus. I don't even know if I snored.
Home sweet home at 7:40pm. Had porridge for dinner and I am feeling sleepy again.
Saturday, January 9, 2010
Had lunch at Crystal Jade. Lean meat and century egg porridge, my not-to-be-missed Har Kau and Shrimp Chee Cheong Fun. Can't finish the porridge, I know it's a waste.
Was really tempted to get the Coach tote. If I get my pay tomorrow, I will get it unless I see something which is even more attractive. I did have the thought of saving for a LV bag instead but it means I have to resist harder.
Slept on bus 106 till back home. Home-cooked dinner and HK drama again. Just had a glass of red wine so I can sleep better tonight. Not turning an alcoholic am I?
Dinner with the sisters tomorrow to celebrate Jac's birthday.
Wednesday, January 6, 2010
Took a cab home with G and sent him home first. I knocked out once I lay on the bed.
Saw a neighbour, a 40+ year old auntie, wearing neon pink leggings and a long tee in the morning. She should just wear something more appropriate to work and most importantly to dress like her age. Not really a good example as a mother of two.
Ate about 100g of macadamia cookies after 2 vegetable buns for breakfast. Quite a scary stomach I have.
Went TBM alone to pack lunch for colleagues and myself. Almost bought a pack of petai for mum to cook dinner. Had fried prawn noodles for lunch.
Saw the stomp video of the girl who got molested by 4 men at the Sentosa Countdown. Really felt like killing the indian guy in a stripe tee. But when I came to know that the girl could be a transexual, I don't feel that bad for 'her'. Knowing the assets were fake, then it didn't matter much. But the indian guy is unforgivable for his actions, such a pervertic creature.
Went to meet someone last minute after work. Luckily the call came just in time before I reached home. Or else, I would find another excuse to free myself.
Home sweet home at 8pm for dinner. Can't wait to watch Avatar 3D with colleagues tomorrow.
Tuesday, January 5, 2010
Only watched an hour of "In Her Shoes", kind of bored me. And so I read blogs, played sudoku and drank tea. Everyday at work, I have to think of things to keep myself busy with. You see me on Facebook and I check my e-mail like 10 over times a day. As long as I am awake, I am almost all the time connected to the Internet. It's like oxygen to me. And because this kind of life can't go on, I am looking for a part-time job which will put my time connected to the internet to good use. Is there such a job?
Got to catch "Sherlock Holmes" with G tonight.
Sunday, January 3, 2010
Dinner with CJZ at Ramen Ten. 99cent for white plates. My appetite was smaller, only 6 plates this time. Played 2 rounds of Outrun 2 with him and I won the second round. At least I won once. Off to IMM to get the egg tarts from KZ and meet LL.
LL and I had to call Nicholas twice because we can't find his place. In the end, we realised that we got his block wrong. Useless even though we know his unit number.
Nicholas bought the rubber straws from Australia as above. Look at them carefully and you will see that they are shaped into penises and scrotums. Kinky stuff ya? LL was complaining that the rubber smell was quite strong. Each of us had to suck the straws for our photos to be taken. Got a ball beanie from Nicholas which he bought from Australia.
Played indian poker when all of us have arrived. KZ and WF probably drank the most vodka with coke. LL drank quite an amount but she was still very conscious. Ranga and I didn't drink much. Nicholas drank very much lesser than the previous drinking session. Not because he was lucky but because his forfeits were accumulated to 5 times and he chose to do a dare. He went half-naked with his boxers at the void deck after we had supper at the coffee shop. Excuse me, I don't think anyone else saw him at ~2:30am.
Back to his house and guess what? The 6 of us were watching online japanese porn together. Of course, nothing happened among us. We were complaining how long the videos were and we had to forward from time to time. Saved us from yawning. The topic of "Kong Bak Bao" came from Nicholas and this title went to KZ. It's funny why a nickname like this can be the joke of the day.
We watched 3 minutes of "Monster House", 1 hour of "Wanted" and ~1.5 hour of "Friday the 13th". The DVD player hung a few times which was partly why we switched the movies. The almost dead player hang again when we were watching one of the exciting parts of "Friday the 13th". We really got poured by cold water. All of us except WF were watching the horror movie. And since the player refused to work for us and it was 5am, we decided to sleep.
KZ and WF slept in Nicholas's room while the rest of us were in the living room. It was really cold with the fan turning above us. All of us except Nicholas and WF were awoken by 8am.
Watched videos on Youtube. Parrots talking, rabbits humping, how a transexual is being transformed and gays. We were really enjoying the entertainment brought by a pair of parrots. Seems like twins as they were imitating each other, making all the 'kok kok' sounds and speaking "What are you doing?"
As Nicholas went soccer, we went for breakfast at a Taiwan restaurant "The 7th Storey". Had toast set but the peanut butter toast was not as great as The Toast Box. Most of the waitresses were from China.
Went for light shopping and I bought the new Revlon liquid foundation which can match skin tone. Excited to try the product.
Had my shower and entertained Kiki. Fed her a hotdog bun in the restroom, how appropriate is that right? I saw the cute her eating the huge bread and so I decided to print screen and show you.
Friday, January 1, 2010
Had dinner straight after I woke up. Fried bee hoon, curry puff, spring roll, oneh oneh and a slice of blackforest cake. I know it's a mountain of food.
Watched the MJ tour concert on Channel 5. I was too bored to do anything.
If you asked me how was my NYE, I would tell you it's worse than a day at work. This is why my shoutout on FB was "I don't need public holidays except CNY".
Knocked off at 12:30pm and took a bus to Taka to meet G for lunch. Quite an expensive meal at Sushi Tei.
Bought 300g of cookies from Famous Amos. I know it's heaty but it's addictive. Took a bus home, has been so long since I slept on the bus.
Back home and I continued to sleep before meeting the 2 wonder girls for ktv. I purposely had a glass of red wine before leaving.
Went Chevrons Aviary KTV at 6pm. Had a goodie bag of party stuff. Ordered a snack combo, a bottle red wine and each a glass of white wine. The snack combo consisted of 50 pieces of deep-fried finger food. We know we could finish it since LL was around. We were the only ones singing at the beginning, had the entire lounge to ourselves. More and more people arrived, mostly are uncles and aunties. Can't stand the hokkien songs. Only played a game of pool with KZ. Stayed at the KTV till about 1am.
