I went to Esplanade Theatre Hall to watch this Korean theatric today. It's called JUMP, a comic martial arts performance.

JUMP tells the story of an idiosyncratic Korean family under the rule of a strict grandfather who insists on keeping up the physical fitness of all family members through vigorous martial arts training. The performance comes to a climax when two stupid thieves break into the house and confront three generations of kung-fu masters, inspiring a series of ridiculous scenes.

It was really funny and I'm impressed by how flexible these people are, and how beautifully they can perform those martial arts moves.

Then I caught two soccer matches at National Stadium. Heard from Mr Lim that it's the last game in National Stadium, which will officially be closed down today. Saw the Sg veterans playing against Malaysians veterans. Wow, they moved really really slow and it looked so funny cuz they are so uncoordinated and slow.

Then we saw the currently Lions playing against Australian soccer team. You can practially see real life Ozzie (international players) warming up at the stadium, and I'm really impressed with how they did their warm up. Well, needless to say, Oz won hands down with 3 goals (I didn't catch the 2nd half of the match so I didn't saw them score). Lions did came quite close a few time near the goal post in the first half, but a pity, none were goals.

Left early for the match as my cousins were hungry and they needed to go home early. Brought them to Geylang for dinner, I highly suspect they are very intrigued with the fanciful sight that they saw. Had nice food in Geylang! The beef ho fun and the dim sum was really yummy yeah!

So tired, played games with Shawn till late yesterday night and today's heat was such a killer. Yawnz, off to bed now. Happily finished blogging already.

Oops, yeah, I just remembered, I forgot to take any pics at all at the stadium. Bleah, oh well.

CY officially became 2* on 29 June 2007 and we also celebrated a belated 2* birthday for Yoges. Yes, I'm very happy to announce that they are 2* as I'm still younger!!! Lol! Well, though sooner or later, and actually very soon, I'll be joining them. Hiak hiak, older yeah.

We had a different choice of halal restaurant this time, one that sells vegetarian food as well. We went to Fig and Olive in Vivo City. Yeah, I'm proud to show off that I managed to show Yoges the direction to Vivo City, using a street directory, without getting lost at all! Btw, Yoges liked the perfume that we got for her, thank goodness hee.

So we were early as we didn't get lost, got an outdoor seat near to the sea. The food was so so, not that fantastic but edible. Too bad, Krisie didn't join us as she was down with rashes, eeeehhh, itchy itchy. Mr Lim joined us too, heh, hopefully he wasn't feeling left out amongst so many females (oh well, but in the first place, since when he feels left out in groups of females? He adores females lots!). Let me rephrase, hope he wasn't feeling bored amongst my group of friends that he doesn't knows well.

Then we went over to Pacific Cafe and had drinks at the outdoor seats. I sat on the cushion sofa, and to be honest, it wasn't very comfy cuz it didn't had a back rest, and it was too wide for me to feel comfy, although the seat was very cushiony and soft. The drinks were nice though, at least mine was nice. I had a Mango Mania. Bestie's drink sucks though, totally tasted more like expresso than cookies and cream.

Oh, we also gave Jun Wei a farewell lunch at Hougang Green Bubble Tea Shop, so yeah I had my favourite pork chop fried rice again heh heh. Jun Wei was really irritating, kept bickering with me in my office. Crazy dude, dunno why he bickers with me so much, until Siti (our new clerk) said that if they put us two together in the Deputy Head room only, we can quarrel the whole day and make lots of noises. It was finally towards the end of the day, then we got some sensible conversation going, which mostly was me interrogating him with questions and him answering stupidly and blindly LOL!

So it sums up a GOOD FRIDAY indeed, I had my fair share of fun today and I really enjoyed it.

Super duper pissed today. Got knocked over by a bicycle when I was walking back to office today. Puhhhh leaseeeee, we all know Buangkok Green has a bicycle connector, purposely they built it because many people like to cycle on the roads or pedestrians walkways, endangering themselves or others. It's a bloody connector built for cyclists and yet, there are still some stupid people who wants to cycle on the pedestrians walkways.

Anyway, I was walking along the pedestrian walkway, going to the back gate of the hospital when I heard bells ringing behind me. Naturally, my instinct was to keep to a side of the road and viola, bang, the bike hit onto me. This stupid person was speeding real fast on the bike, on a bloody pedestrian walkway, when just next to it, it was the bloody connector!

Anyway, thank goodness I have shoes, he got my shoe, my feet slipped and twisted to a side, when he rammed full force on my shoes. Thank you so much, now it's spoilt, thanks to the force exerted on it. I got so pissed, I just looked and him and said:"Boy, you aren't supposed to cycle here. There is a bicycle pathway just here. You are supposed to be cycling there. Move over to there" and I walked off in a huff. Well I didn't see him behind me at all, guess he was probably running away or something.

I hate IRRESPONSIBLE PEOPLE and PEOPLE THAT DON'T FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS OR RULES. Luckily I'm not some old frail elderly or kid that was walking on that lane. He could have just rammed way past them. So wat that he's a sec school boy, he should be taught a lesson.

I have been going around smelling perfumes, yes I'm practically smelling every single perfume, for Yoges's present and I fell in love with many perfumes heh heh. Let's tell you which is nice.

Vera Wang Princess
Lovely bottle, lovely name, sweet floral scent, suitable for anyone who wants to be a princess!

YSL Baby doll
Cut little dolly bottle, with poms poms or stars (depending on which edition). Very sweet girlish scent, suitable for cute and sweet girls.

YSL Young, Sexy and Lovely
If you want to feel like what the name says, go ahead and get this. Very nice flowery scent!

Anna Sui Dolly Girl (Bourjous)
French version. I owned the beach dolly girl version which is sweeter, this one smells more womanly but has a subtle sweet scent to it too.

DKNY Red Delicious
Not bad, good for ladies/women. Great looking bottle too.

Lanvin (the purple one, forgot the name)
This one has a refreshing smell, very fresh and flowery.

Nina Ricci Love in Paris (my favourite amongst smelling all)
I say, the first thing when I smell this perfume was, ahhhh so romantic.....Yes, it's really Love In Paris, you really feel the romantic sense when you smell this perfume. I decided to buy this for Yoges because I simply can't get enough of it. It smells so nice! The bottle is not fantastic though, very simple.


Enough of perfume smelling, I got pretty eye shadows for Yoges too. It contains aloe vera in it, and it's shimmery pretty hee hee. And an eyeliner, which contains aloe too and a facial mask, aloe and honey. Looks yummy huh. It's so fun shopping for presents, especially for others.

Yeah and I was talking to Denise yesterday, no one shall fight with me to go to either Fig and Olive or Sofra for my birthday, it's sooooo sooooo hard to think of a halal and vegetarian place (besides Pizza Hut, Secret Recipe, Swensons, Breeks, all of which we always go bleah). So it's mine! I secretly kept suggesting to Yoges other places so I don't have to rack my brains so hard to think of where we should go (cuz well I started the trend of "Birthday girls will think of the place to eat")...simply because I was tired of organising, thinking about what presents to buy and to even think of the place to eat.

That really helps you know, because I have lesser work to think of and just focus on present buying.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO CY in advance first. Her birthday falls on this coming Thursday. Oops have to shop for CY now....got to rack head again.

This is a very nice animation movie, caught it with Bestie on Sat. It's really very sweet and touching! Although you dunno what it is talking about cuz it's unsubbed, but it's one of those animes that can touch my heart like Hiyao's animations.

Btw, thanks Denise for bringing me to Sun and Moon for dinner. The sukiyaki was really very very nice!


Saturday, June 23, 2007 Y 9:47 AM


It was a nice day today! But also terrible day, sigh.

Anyway, I woke up today at 10.30am and I text Bestie on where to meet. She suggested that we go to Bukit Gombak for a body massage first as the start of the wonderful thing. So I met her at BG, and we went to the shop but to our disappointment, they only have slots at 5.30pm, too rushing for us.

So we went down to Far East, and had Jap Food at Ramen Ten. I had Ebi Ramen, Bestie had spicy salmon ramen, we both had prawn mayonnaise and fried golden maki. And we both ordered soda for drinks (me mango and she, blue soda). Very filling meal, I nearly puked till the end cuz I was so full (yeah I know, wasn't the most satisfying word to describe it).

Then we went to Galleria to look for Bestie's bag. Bestie's fiance was supposed to buy her a bag for the wedding and the budget was below $1000. Wow, can you imagine that, it's that much yeah. I had my first chance walking around branded shops, and seeing indescribable prices! They cost like $600 to $13000 plus for bags. These people must be filthy rich to buy these kinda stuff! I'm so glad I aren't earning big bucks, cuz wasting money on such things, branded, yet with the same function as any normal bag, ain't really my cup of tea.

So we decided to catch a movie after that and we popped over to Cine and bought tickets to "The Girl who Leapt through time". It's a really nice movie! Funny, sweet, romantic and just something that you like to find in the lost time. And it was pretty long, like 1.5 hours, so quite worth the money.

Bestie gave me a Braun Buffel, pink, wallet! That's so sweet of her to do so! And she actually remembers that I kinda like Braun Buffel stuff (although I said that like ages ago, you know seriously I couldn't even remember why I said I like Braun Buffel stuff). Thank you so much, Bestie! You really made my day with the gift and stuff that you did with me.

So that was the good part, the bad part, sigh....simply terrible.


Friday, June 22, 2007 Y 10:44 AM


A friend asked me this question but I didn't know how to answer him cuz I'm pretty lousy at this kinda stuff.

"How do you know whether a girl likes you? And if she leans her head on your shoulder on the bus, does this means that she kinda likes you?"

Do you know the answer? If you do, tell me. Oh goodness, I suck at this kinda stuff.


Y 5:02 AM


Krisie thinks she may be preggy! Hee hee, isn't it so nice if she is?

And congrats to Jesse, I read Denise's blog and saw the good news. That is really wonderful!


Thursday, June 21, 2007 Y 9:25 AM


Glutton is sick! From food poisoning. I think he must have ate too much and ended up with an upset stomach...and pukey too....eeks....Poor boi...rest well and get well soon k? Then you can go eating happily again, and you own me fried Mars bars. So you better get your stomach fixed soon!


Y 5:51 AM




She's such a sweetheart and real talented! Plus I love this song!

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
There's a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby

Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true

Some day I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemondrops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can't I?
Some day I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemondrops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?

I changed my blog skin! I think it looks real pretty! Hee hee!

My house reeks of smoke now, stupid gay guy that always comes my house to smokes. Got so much free time should go and find a gf, not come to my house to smoke, eat free food and watch tv. Bleah, he's my Dad's fren, I can't say anything bad to him. And my stupid Dad has to go shower when he was here, and asked me to entertain GAY guy. WTH!

I had a sudden craving for this fried Mars bar that I ate at Far East Plaza, some day with Mr Lim. I tell you, it tasted super duper nice okie! Fried chocolate coating with ice cream inside, extremely sinful!

I wish I can cut open my students brains and fry them up....they really have poor attitudes. My colleagues were complaining to me that they have poor clinical skills and poor initiative and simply poor OT students attitudes. Neh, I'm so reluctant to take them for clinicals but then, my dear boss wants me to take yr 2 students for teaching for clinical placements. Imagine taking them after they sat for your exams.

Do you like the book Little Prince? I do, after so long, it still comes across to me as a really sweet book to read.



I remembered that the first time I read it was in my third year in poly, where I had to do this assignment on OT models and clinical reasoning. I fell in love with the story, with the quotes. They were simply lovely.

"Grown-ups like numbers. When you tell them about a new friend, they never ask questions about what really matters. They never ask: "What does his voice sound like?" "What games does he like best?" "Does he collect butterflies?". They ask: "How old is he?" "How many brothers does he have?" "How much does he weigh?" "How much money does his father make?" Only then do they think they know him"

Doesn't makes me feel like a grown up cuz I ask questions like "is he handsome?" and I'm not interested in figures.


"Language is the source of misunderstandings."


Don't you think so? I can count how many times I misunderstood people from their writings, their sms, their words.

"One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes."

I used this quote for my assignment. I think it's so true, sometimes we just can't see certain things though it's right under our eyes.

Another book that I really found it meaningful was Tuesday with Morris, the quotes he used was so meaningful and sets you off to think deeper about it.

"So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half asleep, even when they are busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning." -- Morrie

P.S: As I was writing this entry, I heard Chen Bai Qiang's (He passed away long time ago) song called "Yi Sheng He Qiu". I liked this song alot when I was young, like the tune and the lyrics. It's really meaningful.

Check out Golden Mile Food Centre! Got really nice food like beef noodles, prawn noodles, Jap food esp the teriyaki chicken katsu set, cheap and good chocolate fondue from The Sweet Stone and possibly many more.

Did you read Sunday Straits Times? So grossed, they actually sell croc leg meat in Yishun, and the picture can see the greenish croc leg...eeeks!

Oh boy, I suck in playing car games and tennis....I rather play those fighting games.

Mr Lim has a new Nokia 6300 and it looks super pretty, better not let Kris/Ern suckers for hp see it cuz they are suckers for changing their handphones every seasons.

I caught so many movies, Pirates of Carribean 3, Shrek 3, Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Ocean 13 and etc. Cool I really like Ocean 13, very deceptively funny. And Shrek 3, so cute and comical! Pirates was so so, pretty messy and Fantastic 4, hmmm....okie, funny at times.

I wanted to watch Amityville Horror cd but it's too scary for me to watch alone and Mr Lim said he wanted to fall asleep halfway watching it, bleah.

Can't wait for Transformers to be out!

Note: Happy BF's anniversary to us on 16/6/2007! I'm glad to have you as my BF for these 5 years (we only became BFs in year 2 in school).

How do you make someone feel more secure in a relationship? How do you exorcise that feeling of insecurity?

Sometimes I think I'm paranoid you know but then I don't know why, please don't ask me why, that I just feel really insecure with regards to particular someone. I wonder is it because they are something that we can never be? You know, the lovable, cute, sweet, friendly, everyone likes type. Is that why we feel uncomfortable then?

I mean, it makes sense that you feel insecure about someone when they posed a threat to you but why do they pose a threat? Is it they are someone we are not? Is it because you don't trust enough? Is it because you are just being plain silly? Or is it because you have no confidence of yourself? Or is because they can make the special someone happier than when he/she is with you? Or is it because they are more similar and you just feel like an extra?

You know some people when you meet them, they just seem so much superior and better than you? And they have everything that you don't have (well it appears that way, at least what we thought sometimes), and they just seem to suit better with some people rather than you?

I'm thinking if I know the answer to the above, then I'll probably find the answer that I seek. Seriously, even my bestie doesn't knows why she feels insecure when her someone hangs out with particular someone too. Even Kris has a particular someone that she doesn't likes Ernest to hang out with, and you know all these particular people that we don't like, they just happened to be who your guy likes most to hang out with.

And guys, they don't understand why we feel that way, they just think we are paranoid, makes us think that we are developing some kind of mental illness like schizophrenia. No wonder people say that people in love are crazy.

Bestie says it's probably because as girls, we wanna feel special and be loved by our special someone, not having their attention on other people of the same gender, that's why we probably feel threatened in situations like that. Kris says it simply irritates the hell out of her whenever he spends his time with the girl and giving her special attention.

Jayson says my attention is still on my gf, reassuring her alot although I'm out with another girl, that's what I need to do to although it means alot more work, but it really reassures her. I really like the way he said it to me:"I will msg her to tell her who I'm with, where I'm going, what I'm doing and then what time will I be roughly home. And I will msg her when I'm home to tell her I'm home and what I did". It really impressed me when he said that, I was going like "wow, you really report to her about everything, isn't that tedious?". And he was like, "would you feel secure if I do anything lesser than that?"

It reminded me of a phrase that I saw in Mars vs Venus, time crawls when you know she is another man. You know, time really crawls, and I really feel bored when you are with another girl. Haha, probably because I'm free, alone, at home, got plenty of time to think about what you both are actually doing, and girls being girls with wild imagination can crap up lots of crap stories in their heads.

And then I start to understand why there was this gf of mine, whom goes out with guys every time whenever her bf is out with another girl, she said it was to kill time cuz by doing that, she wouldn't need to think about what they are doing. But why guys? Why can't go out with girls? She said it was because guys are more readily available to ask them out. And I always questioned whether that's a good way to cope with the situation, cuz that's like playing with fire right? Although I can understand that it does feels a bit unpleasant in such situations, isn't there better way to cope with it then using this method?

But I do understand one thing, you may think logically as a female, but your heart rules your head often. You know it's not right to do that, but you still do silly things cuz you were upset, angry, not happy at that moment of time. But when it's over, you realise things just become worser than better. I'm glad that I do have a good certain degree of self control, at least I will only throw tantrums, but I wouldn't be so silly to resort to really silly measures.

See how much crap I can just think of over one issue of insecurity? I should just go to sleep. Freaking wish that my mother had came home early with dinner, so that I don't have to sit down here and crap over issues like this. But I already did.

Guess What?!! I'm so ecstatic, I found out that we can now order DUNKIN DONUTs online now!

I missed my Dunkin Donuts, used to eat it when I was much younger, that's why I love donuts! And the last time I ate it, it was in Australia, when one of my Msia housemate brought it for us. Yummy Yummy, missed the good old donuts.

You can now order it online from this webby and they delivered it to City Hall and Marymount Road on Sunday....Check out the yummy flavours, yeah they looked real nice!

珊瑚海

It's an old song, not a new one, been hearing it often and been singing it always in ktv but never really absorbed the lyrics fully. Heard it yesterday again and really use my heart to listen to the lyrics carefully this time.

转身离开分手说不出来
你有话说不出来
海鸟跟鱼相爱只是一场意外
我们的爱差异一直存在
回不来
风中尘埃竟累积成伤害
等待竟累积成伤害

海鸟跟鱼, 2 different creatures falling in love, 2 different persons falling in love.
我们的爱差异一直存在, 2 very different persons in love, many differences about them, a difference in personality, characteristic, thinking, differences in the relationship.
等待竟累积成伤害, and while you kept waiting, you realise that all you got was hurt.

It's really very tiring when 2 different persons are in love, while you are waiting for each other to change, you realise all you wait for is more and more hurt. You get hurt while trying to change, you get hurt knowing the truth in differences, you get hurt when it doesn't happens.

海鸟跟鱼相爱只是一场意外, is it really true that it was just by pure incident that these 2 persons are brought together? Or was it a mistake that they were together?

转身离开分手说不出来, 你有话说不出来, and it comes to a point when eventually you don't even have the words to say to each other, too much hurt, too much pain, you don't even bother to talk about it anymore cuz it just brings out even more hurt.

当初彼此不够成熟坦白, we should have been more frank with each other in the relationship, but how often is that possible to do it? What are the consequences that will come about being frank with each other? Hurting him/her or hurting you yourself? Sometimes, some things are chosen to be forgotten and not brought up, but it just accumulated and you get more hurt instead. But sometimes, when you talk about it, you also get more hurt instead.

汹涌潮水你听明白,不是浪而是泪海, and all you left are tears trickling down your face, hurt inside your heart and sadness within you.

每次我想更懂你我们却更有距离
是不是都用错言语也用错了表情
其实我想更懂你不是为了抓紧你
我只是怕你会忘记有人永远爱着你

N.B: I think I can sing this song better in ktv next time round after I analyse it detailedly heh heh.
