strange new discover this new year

There are more auditors in my family than the number of auditor friends I have.

It's a popular trend. In my grandma's generation, there were more doctors than the number of doctor friends I have. Now auditors.

Some relative: What school's your sis in?
Me: Cedar Girls
Some relative: Oh, so same school?
Me: Huh?
Some relative: Oh ic
Me: Same school as what?
Some relative: Looks intently at his packet drink
That relative's wife: Yah same school as what?
Me: No I'm not in Cedar
That relative's wife: Aiyo she is working already lah

And someone asked if me and my sis were twins. I mean.. TWINS?

When somebody dies, a cloud turns into
an angel, and flies up to God
to put another flower on a pillow.
A bird gives the message back to
the world, and sings a silent prayer
that makes the rain cry. People disappear,
but they never really go away.
The spirits up there put the sun to
bed, wake up grass, and spin the
earth in dizzy circles. Sometimes you
can see them dancing in a cloud during
the day-time, when they're supposed
to be sleeping. They paint the rainbow
and also the sunsets and make
waves splash and tug at the tide.
They toss shooting stars and listen to
wishes. And when they sing wind songs,
they whisper to us, don't miss me too much.
The view is nice and I'm doing just fine.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

— Mark Twain

So far there is no one who is giving me the encouraging nudge to go ahead.

Honestly, really that bad, you think?

I will have to book my air ticket by 26th, so any comments after that will be deemed useless.

If there is anything anyone wants to say, please say it now.

Bearing in mind that there is someone that I could possibly call should anything happen because my friend's friend is studying there (but I will most likely not even call her when I reach and all but instead get some pre-departure information from her)

I will be staying at a youth hostel, maybe this.

Of course since you who will comment already know me, and if I'm swaying towards going, I will most likely go. But being the girl I am, I need reassurance. So just tell me the truth lah. If the objections and reasonings are good bad enough, I may actually pass.

Oh yes!

You Are a Frappacino

At your best, you are: fun loving, sweet, and modern

At your worst, you are: childish and over indulgent

You drink coffee when: you're craving something sweet

Your caffeine addiction level: low

I hate to say this but I agree.

*blah look*


Hui gives 6 out of 10 as a neutral audience and 7 for personal reasons/preference for type of movie.

It's a watch in the movie sort of show.

Unless you can watch your DVD in the dark in full concentration, otherwise you'd lose its essence. Reminds me of A Beautiful Mind.

What a lil night run did to me

It just hit me why I love the movie. Takeshi Kaneshiro + Jacky Cheung. It's because it's not just a love story. Takeshi Kaneshiro + Jacky Cheung. It's everyone's love story. Takeshi Kaneshiro + Jacky Cheung. It gives no answer, and different people will get different sort of feeling depending on how you relate to the characters. Did I mention anything about that doe eye yummy boy and that cool director who can really freaking sing? If anything, I melted at his song, and I ached for him too.

Anyways, I'm not happy. I guess most people are not. You cannot achieve happiness if you cannot feel content. And in the current situation I'm in, hardly anything near contentment.

I honestly feel like I'm merely existing on this planet with no real purpose taking up space wasting natural resources and adding to pollution by using plastic bags and not recycling batteries. No sense of satisfaction. No sense of forward moving.

I'm just screaming inside CHANGE but really, who likes changes? Okay, everyone loves little changes. Little changes like a change of hairstyle, a change of dress sense and maybe, food will be good. But changes that are so difficult, so tedious could potentially be a dreadful thing. Everyone loves to be in their little hole where it is so comfortable. Except that my hole is just nice and growing smaller soon I can't maneuver around it comfortably.

First I have to get out of the job. Then out of the country. And I'm not talking about the BKK shoptillyoudrop trip which is nice, but of comfort level so high I feel more at home there than at Orchard Road.

The San Francisco thing might do me good. I should really try to make it come true. If only immediate friends can come along instead of just immediate family, I wouldn't even need to contemplate marriage just to qualify a companion on my cheeeeper than HK airfare.

Imagine me informing my parents, eh I'm going to get married with XXX because if he is my husband he will also pay only $399 for the ticket. That will be hilarious. I wonder if stepbrother is a better excuse.

But meanwhile, finding a Singaporean boss who wants a local to go over to some other country to help him set up something new or something would be at the top of my agenda.

Pink or Black?

I did an unbelievable thing.

I logged into my ibanking,
clicked Bill Payment,
and transferred 1k to pay my tuition loan.

Satisfied that I have less debt up my arse, I clicked my account balance,

And realised I've got all of $300 left in my account, to last me till the end of the month.

Why I so stupid?
