Nothing new tis few days....juz watched alot of movies! Fearless, Memoirs of Geisha, In Her Shoes, I'm Not Stupid Too, Dreamer, Cheaper by A Dozen...I think I practically finished all the shows in the theatre.

My room looks much neater now...waiting to change the bedsheets...CNY tis yr...sigh...nothing new...I'm still single as like how past CNY are....getting older but still getting ang bao...fortunately no one pop the question of..."When are u gg to stop receiving ang baos?"

My hair is the same length as last year CNY...still look the same...maybe more wrinkles and pimples? Lolx.

Tis few days has allowed me to sorted out some thinking. I know wat I'm looking for now. No younger guys, no unstable guys, no workaholic guys, no money minded guys....I hate ppl whom hit on me fast...I hate ppl whom think I'm easy to hook on...Get lost jerks...if u are finding someone to fling with...then u so look for the wrong person.

Btw, I seriously dunno wat is wrong with my face that attract all these wrong kind of ppl to me...when will good ones come to me?

P.S: I like Jay Chou's Huo Yuan Jia and JJ Lim's new songs.

Can't a plain jane be cinderella for once? I know I've been lazy to groom myself to work and when I do that, I get all sorts of insensitive comments.

Isn't it a gurl's duty to look nice and presentable? For goodness sake, I'm single and available...can't I make myself look good?

Wat do they expect?


Saturday, January 14, 2006 Y 8:47 AM


My life was perfect until you appeared.

Then again, it wasn't really perfect...it was just the normal usual life that I lead...until now when you came in and left it.

There's a part of me which has been taken away since u left. The part that I feel confident and happy. '

There's also a part that you given me which nv existed so much in my life before...and that is sadness, loneliness and fear.

Time and time, a small tinge of sadness reside in my heart when you text me or when I talked about you. It isn't as great as in the past where I would drop tears for you. Tears that are worthless and irrelevant to you.

That stage of life is over and gone. I will no longer shed tears for you because I know that, YOU ARE NOT WORTH IT.

Then again, what has been given can never be taken back. I have given my love and it's something that I can nv be returned back. For that love that is nv reciprocated, sadness took over it's place.

Sometimes, I still feel sad that I have loved you before. Mostly, I fear that I will end up as those successful people whom are still single in their 30s or get married in their 30s and have no children.

Despite that I want to do well in my career, I do not and never will want to be that. I'm now 1/4 of a century, single, lonely and real pathetic. Broke, penniless, not looking the best of my life.

Sometimes, I just have this feeling that you were just making use of me. That I was just one of your clients whom like you, so you just take the opportunity to date me. I'm just one of those people available for you to date and ditched.

Until now, you are still trying to make use of me. All those talk about friends and stuff are just plain lies. Fortunately for me, I saw through what was going to happen and ignored you.

It's a pity you don't read this blog because I want to tell you that, if care for a friend to you sums up to be monetary wise, then you are better off without friends. You just make all your friends become your clients and make money out from them.

I really wonder do financial consultants really make good friends then? Well, doesn't matter for me. YOU ARE OUT OF MY LIFE AND PLEASE STAY OUT OF MY LIFE.

We are better off without each other.

Lastly, I have some words to tell you..I dun care whether you read it a not because I already text you that as you are making my life miserable.

You are a f***ing jerk with a f***ing problem, f***ing nv reply my text, f***ing only finds me because you wanna make money, f***ing self centred, f***ing dunno wat is care and friends and in summary, just one f***ing asshole. I pray that you will find the world 'nicest' girlfriend that will make your life 'wonderful'.

You think you are so handsome and great? You think you have better complexion and features than me? If you want a girlfriend just to show, let me tell you, you are hooking up the wrong people.

Just flaunt your money and assets and branded goods around and I bet tons of girls will come running after you. Somehow I'm very thankful that you are making my life miserable because that makes me despise you.

I despise you, your character, your actions, your words and your promises. I wouldn't hate you because to hate you means I have loved you alot. I rather give my love to someone more worthy of me than to someone as ***** as you.

Sometimes, anger can be healthy too. At least, it helps you get over jerks faster.

P.S: In Her Shoes is really nice =)

HAPPY OT DAY!

It's 11.55pm now...5 more minutes and OT DAY is OVER!!!! YEAH!

Happy Birthday to RUPA too!

I'm really very glad that this day is finally over. It was a day that I dreaded and yet anticipate for it to arrive.

2 months ago, an OT Day Committee was set up to organise this event. At the same time, IMH OT Concert Committee was also set up to put together a concert for OT Day.

I knew being in OT Day Committee means having tons of work to do but surprisingly, the work needed to be carried out was much lesser compared to Concert.

At least I was only in charge of organising the Gala Dinner for the whole OT cohort in Singapore, while for Concert, I have to chair a committee and look after other miscellaneous details too.

11th January 2006 depicts a special day for OT, a special day for me but yet it was also the most eventful day.

From the start of the day, I had been rushing around IMH trying to get things done and fixing up last minute changes. In the afternoon, I was rushing around to get the concert ready and going.

Imagine doubling up as so many roles in one day. A chairperson, an usher, an actor, a singer, a floor manager, a hairstylist and an OT. I kinda understand how a split personality person would feel.

Nevertheless, I really enjoyed the concert. Was glad that the audience enjoyed the skit that OTD has put up for OT Day. All along during rehearsals and practice, we were nv serious and giggle around but today's performance was spectacular and impressive till people commented that we really acted like patients and was really comical.

I really appreciate the staff that lend a helping hand during OT Concert, be it as logistics or events helpers, performers or coordinator. I really felt very touched when I watch our very own OT Montage. What really strike me for the day and set me thinking that I could really be a good OT, was when our OTD patients bravely went up to the stage and sang a beautiful song for us.

As KY has put it, these patients have no singing experience before, they have nv been on the stage before and some are even afraid of crowd but yet they braved thru storms to deliver to us a wonderful performance.

It was successful. It could nv be without everyone's efforts. Yes, we have finally braved through the long endured 11th January. I know we are phobic of having another concert or big events again but I'm happy and contented to see my patients' smiles.

After 8.5 hours of rushing around like a mad woman in IMH, I rushed down to Soteria for Gala Dinner.

While everyone's day could end at 5.30pm and enjoy their dinner, I have to run around the Soteria making sure things are smooth.

I was very thankful that I have very nice friends and fellow OT colleagues around whom came earlier to help me, provided assistance during the event, and by giving social support by attending the dinner.

I couldn't use anymore words to express my appreciation and thanks to Christina, the restaurant director and Mohammad, the manager for their well efforts and kindness in helping us to run the event smoothly.

Even though I did not have much of a chance to sit down and fully enjoy my dinner and chit chatting with my fellow OT mates, I had fun organising the event.

1.5 yrs more to go as events coordinator. Till then, I guess I will be very experience with doing up such dinners and buffets.

Am really tired by now. Glad that it's an off day for me tmr. Nothing can be use to describe the heavyness and muscle pain that I'm feeling rite now but I wanna exclaimed and scream out in excitement: "Good job Caiwei aka Shirley! U have finally combat OT Day with success!"


Monday, January 9, 2006 Y 5:00 AM


Counting down...2 more days to OT Day...more tension and anxiety building up...fear of whether the events will succeed....

Counting down...3 more days to end of OT Day....time to relax and get back to normal pace of life =)


Saturday, January 7, 2006 Y 9:48 AM


Be prepared for this post as it may contain unsightly languages and comments.

This is gonna be a post on what happened on Saturday when I went out to meet with Sharon, Meipoh, Kris and Ern (oh and Azi for a short while too =D). It's going to be about 3 restaurants that I went to. A review on it as I proclaimed myself to be a mystery diner. So here it goes....

1. Macdonalds @ Taka
I went to Mac to have lunch with Mei Poh, Sharon and Azi. Went there about 3 pm and was really hungry and a lil irritated (by some incident that thou shall not mentioned). Gladly to my surprise, the queue wasn't that long and I was immediately served by the staff.
This guy that served me was really nice. He explained to me that the soft drinks wasn't ready yet as they are refilling it up and asked me would I prefer to have another drink or wait for the soft drinks to be filled up, and then he will send it to me. Naturally, being a person with limited patience, I chose to have another drink. After serving me my value meal, I realised that I forgot to order a small cup of milo for Azi so I told the guy my order.
He was really sweet. He smiled and said, "one small milo? okie!", and he got for me my milo. Lastly, he even said "Thank you and have a good meal!"
In total, I got served within 5 mins time and I was happily gorging down my meal after that.

2. Shashlik @ Far East Shopping Centre
This has got to be the absolute, most nonsensical and ridiculous and obnoxious restaurant that I have ever went to in my whole 24 years of life!
Let's start with the restaurant. This restaurant is located in some sleazy corner of the shopping centre and is overwhelmed with a pungent, puking smell in the air. I almost choked and puked when I first stepped in and breathe in the 1st ounce of air in the restaurant.
What happened after that was a series of unfortunate and put off events. Firstly, it was the table. We wanted a round table instead of a rectangle one and we asked the waitress to change our seats. The stupid and idiotic waitress just told us sharply in the face that the round tables are for 6 persons. WTF????!!!!! Who cares? I could step into any restaurants and request for a table that has an additional seat more than my group number and they will still give it to me!
Okie fine, that was an appetizer only. The waitress came and just stuff the menus into our hand without bothering to explain anything. We flipped open the menu and got a shock...everything in the menu cost more than 10 bucks! The main courses ranges from 18 to 48 dollars, and the 18 dollars main course sux totally! Anw, who cares? We were just there to eat the baked alaska, which according to Kris, is a really splendid dish (please note that Kris tried this dish in Raffles Plaza, and not this asshole restaurant). This baked alaska cost $16.00 dollars per dish and it's only for 2 persons.
So we decided that we will order 2 set of baked alaska. Enter the entree where when we called for the waiter to serve us, he gave us a waiting sign and turned his back to us, and wat was he doing? Fucking talking to the rest of the waitresses, simply chit chatting only! Wat kind of restaurant service do you call that which you have to pay about 80 dollars of monetary amount to have a meal?!!
This is when we had our main course. The asshole waitress/manager came and told us that they don't just serve dessert only and that we have to buy a main course b4 we could eat the desserts. Like WTH???!!!! Who has ever heard of such nonsense? Imagine going to Planet Hollywood and they tell you that "Oh I'm sorry, you can't eat our desserts unless you eat our main course". WTF, what if I had my dinner already? Am I supposed to buy another main course again just to be able to eat your popular dessert? As if you will not say that we have to eat their appetizer and entree before we can eat their main course? A fucking scam indeed and definitely poor foresight of their business service!
The best part was when she said that, she gave us this fucking look that meant to say that she thinks we are just poor, meagre, acne fighting teenagers that could not afford a decent meal! Fucking idiot, you probably have to bow to me first for the amount that I'm earning and the knowledge that I have over you.
Oh we did have our dessert in the end. We left the restaurant without having anything cuz we are too freaking pissed by the service and attitude. What was our dessert? You are probably wondering right. Well our dessert was that the staff immediately came to clear our table and murmured something really unpleasant under their breath.
So in the end, we had a 'wonderful' set meal with everything included (bad service, bad attitude, unjust treatment), inclusive of the drink (plain water that we drank).
And I freaking wonder, if it was the President that ate there, would they tell the him that he can't order the dessert solely but has to complimented with the main course?

3. The Westbarn @ Cineleisure
Feeling really upset after the previous incident, we decided to go eat something nice. So we tot of going to Phin's steakhouse for a meal. To our dismay, Phin's steakhouse was replaced by this restaurant which had the same design and ambience as Phin. Nevertheless, we decided to give it a try.
This restaurant has the "Cartel" concept, whereby you order your meal in a piece of paper and then pay at the counter. Kris, Ern and me ordered for ribeye steak, me with mushroom sauce and them with honey mustard sauce. We decided to top it up with a set meal that consists of a soup of the day, garlic bread and a drink.
Kris and I went to the counter to pay and that was when another series of unfortunate events happened again.
The 1st shock that I got was when the waitress told me that they dun have soup of day. What do you mean by you dun have a soup of the day? Then why fucking write it down in the menu.
Anw, she repeated again and said "we finished our soup of the day but if you want, you can top up 1 dollar and get an onion soup". WTF, it's your problem that your soup of the day finishes. You should replace it with something and not ask me to top up $1 to get a bowl of fucking onion soup. I'm not exactly a fanatic of onion soup so I rejected her 'kind' offer.
Next came the 2nd shock. I asked for my steak to be medium rare done. She said "sorry, we dun have medium rare, we only serve rare, medium and well done". Are you freaking crazy, bitch? Medium rare is juz a tad between rare and medium! What do you mean you don't serve it? Damn stupid logical reasoning!
Okie fine, so medium done it will be but she has to give me a 3rd shock. She said that they dun have honey mustard sauce for ribeye steak. I got so freaking piss and I said "how come you all everything also dun have". She has the cheek and audacity to retort me back by saying "it's all written in the menu wat", like as if I was blind and didn't read the menu! I was so bloody angry that I took the menu and pointed to her that honey mustard was written in the bloody menu for ribeye steak. She was kinda stunned and she replied "oh sorry, we dun have honey mustard sauce". Kris was so irritated that she criticized the restaurant in front of the waitress's face.
The last straw came when they served our steak. My fucking steak was really medium rare huh! Half side of the steak is medium done and the other half, rare. WTFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's it, I have enough of it and I say, screw this restaurant, I am nv going to come back to here again!

This is really a lil ironical but the best service that I received today was from MACDONALDS!!! A cheap, self service and fast food restaurant. So much for paying 20 bucks or more to eat at better restaurants when they have lousy service or they dun have what they served.

A word of advice to future entrepeneurs, making your business work is about having foresight. Treat your customers like as they are your customers. Be it that they have dyed golden hair, dressed in jeans or bermudas, acne fighting or wat, they are still your customers. They deserved to be treated equally as any other powered dress people. A true rich person is one that does not flaunt their assets around, hence do not judge a person based on appearance.

All I have to say is that I will never visit that fucked up Shashlik and The Westbarn again. I will also make sure that my friends will never go there to suffer undeserved treatment.


Little tots that I had today
If being rich makes you so snobbish and obnoxious, I would rather be a poor but yet contented and happy girl. If being rich means you have to work 24 hours a day, then I would rather be poor but yet satisfied with my achievements. Wat's the point of clothing yourself in branded clothes and accessories, but deep down you are just a pathetic soul that works 24 hrs to replenish whatever you have spend on those so called labelled items? If being rich means you can judge others, then I would rather be a poor person that treats every one impartially. If richness is about losing your good roots, then it is a sin to be rich as one sins when they turned into the bad.

It sounds a lil crazy to be blogging at 7.39 am on Friday morning. Okie, I know it does not telly with the date and time of the blog entry but that's because something is freaking wrong with the webpage and I couldn't see the date and time entry section!

Anw, I'm freaking trying to divert my attention as I am now currently having small lil, red dots on my body and a lil on my face (freaking!!!!) that itches like hell!!!

I woke up this morning and went to bath and saw lil red dots that itchy a lil on my body. Perhaps not fully awake yet, I went to take a hot bath and continue with my usual routine. As time passes by, the itch seems to grow on me and this time round, when I take another second look, my body was covered with more tiny dots! And my face starting to have tiny dots too!

What's happening? I hope it's not chicken pox. I have vaccination for chicken pox before. If it's rashes, then it could an allergic reaction to either yam or something else. Like how am I supposed to know whether I ate yam a not? Obviously I will steer clear of specifically defined yam stuff.

Okie I feel like I'm talking gibberish. Blogging for the sake of diverting my attention away. Just when I am trying to make my face clear and nice, I have these stupid lil rashes! Arrghhh....it better be rashes and subside by today!

Overwhelmed by anxiety...praying it's not chicken pox...praying it's normal rashes that will not blow up and reminds me of that last incident that I have those patchy rashes that made me swelled up to look like a pig. Praying that I will keep my irresponsible fingers away from scratching them.

Okie, I can't blog anymore...I think I'm not making sense. Blog again )=


Sunday, January 1, 2006 Y 7:15 AM


NYE, nothing special. What bugs me was that I couldn't remember what I did last NYE!!!! I could clearly rem that I spent Xmas in Ozzie with my dear OT frens and Xiaowen but I couldn't rem what I did on NYE????!!!!

I muz have been pathetic...probably spent it at home that's why I couldn't rem a single detail about it.

NYE started off with a bad morning. Stupid clinic woke me up with a call. Made me walk there twice becuz the 1st time, I forgot to bring my wallet down. Was really pissed as they could have told me earlier that I needed to pay.

Anw, I was down with a flu, so I went back home to sleep. WHIJ text me. Okie, you muz be wondering who is WHIJ. It's this new termed that I have coined for you know who (sounds like Harry Potter huh?). It stands for worthless, heartless and insensitive jerk.

WHIJ text me about my insurance plan and that he wanted to meet me with his team specialist to talk to me about it. I couldn't be bothered and just told him that his presence will be redundant since it's his team specialist talking to me and not him. He also sent me a new year text but I couldn't be bother to reply. In a sentence, his presence is now oblivious to me.

Woke up at 3pm and had my lunch. Oops, it is really embarrasing to write this here but I WENT BACK TO SLEEP AGAIN!!! Woke up only at 5.30pm and started to prepare to go to DeDe's house. Kris and Ern picked me up at Chinese Garden. Hey, Kris and Ern sounds good together yeah? Hey perhaps you all could open up a shop and called yourselves Kris and Ern. Sounds like Charles and Keith to me.

Thanks to DeDe's desire to be innovative, we had a taste of Rite's Pizza. Some bacon and pork floss thing and Summer something pizza. Anw, tasted real good but of cuz, nothing can be compared to the DIY pasta made by dear DeDe. Been quite awhile since I tasted food made by her =) and thanks to NYE, I got to taste it again.

We chatted all night and played mj. I won yeah!!!! Finally for once. I wasn't wearing red though, mind you. Maybe heaven is pitying me that I had a really crap time this week.

Woke up the next day at 1pm and finished up the leftover food from the previous day. I kinda feel like a potato couch and a homeless creep. Lazing around in DeDe's house, refusing to bathe and get out of her place. Finally managed to gather up energy to leave her place at 5.30pm.

Didn't felt like gg home so DoDo and I cabbed down to Bishan to catch a movie. Realised that it didn't have the movie that I wanted to watch! Walked around, look for a newspapers and then went to Yishun to catch the movie instead.

The movie was really weird. Comical but so totally weird. So different from the original story. Creative but exaggerated and really, I couldn't find the best word for it, weird. Oh and I got a Wallace and Gromit handphone strap from buying the popcorn! SOOOOOOO cute!!!!! Put it onto my phone immediately when I came home =D.

To DeDe, I'm starting to feel happy again by small lil things...like getting my handphone strap...like receiving prezzies from you and Krisie. Like catching a movie that I want, getting aloe vera gel, eating pasta and many many more.

I do feel like crap occasionally but I'm picking up things that I have left behind during this past 5 months. I'm definitely having more sleep. I will try to be the girl that I used to be, the one you know but I believed, certain aspects of me have changed though.

Juz for instance, I couldn't believed that I actually could say something nice to S*** in the past when I'm juz plain mean and sarcastic to her now LOL. No matter what, to my dear friends whom I treasure and their well behaved other halves, I will love you and treat you as good as I can.

A word of advice, get into my good books and you will score. Get into my bad books and good luck to you.
