This is how an off day should be

No alarm ringing… Sleeping till the late morning… No brushing teeth in bed… Lazing on the sofa with bolster… Watching Strawberry Shortcake and Mickey Mouse cartoons on Disney Channel… Shopping solo… Getting lost in my own world of books at Kinokuniya… Stocking up on all my beauty stuff at Watson’s… Hopping from booths to booths and savouring bits of mooncakes…

No going back to the office. Not a single work done at home.

I miss such relaxed off days.


I was glad to have found the appropriate books for the Phonics course. Such a lot of words, phonemes and blends to fit into a whole year’s course! I hope I would be able to churn out the whole course outlines for the 3 levels by next Thursday. It was supposed to be by tomorrow but my nice superior/ colleague helped me to push it back as she thinks it’s impossible to do so with my current workload.

Browsing through all the educational books for kids really makes me wanna have a kid to teach. Books are really amazing. When I have kids, I’m so gonna buy lots and lots of the right books for them to read. It’s good to cultivate reading habits from young and being able to read at a young age is so important!!!

Whenever I step into Kino, I would always visit the design section. I love flipping through all the fashion designs and modern fashion illustrations books. Then, I would have the urge to pick up my pencil to start doodling. I think my drawing really sucks now. I can’t draw a simple girl for nutz.

I remember taking a test on which occupation is best suited for my character. Fashion design was ranked #1. Next was interior design and finally jewellery design. The tester even commented that it was the first time she ever saw someone with the top 3 occupations all related to designing. However, if you ever saw my drawings, you would just laugh and reassure me that I’ve made the right choice to be in the education line.

Oh I’ve finally opened all my Teachers’ Day presents. I know I’m horrible. Children’s Day coming, now then open Teachers’ day present but for the past weeks, I really had no time to even sleep much less unwrap presents. Besides, I don’t like Teachers’ Day gifts. Don’t get me wrong. I love receiving gifts. I just don’t wanna open them as I know the presents would look a lot prettier neatly wrapped in colourful wrappers rather than as gaudy decorative items that would only be left lying obsolete in my room.

I would rather these students write me notes and cards as these are a lot more heartwarming and easier to keep. They could also give me the best gift by behaving well, doing well, handing up their homework and showing good attitudes.

It's amazing how my students can call me "Ms Loh" and write "Mrs Loh".


Right Brain vs Left Brain Tests

I got 2 of these RB LB tests from my email…


Test 1: Find the man between the coffee beans.

Doctors have concluded that:
If you find the man in 3 seconds, your right
half of your brain is better developed than most people.

If you find the man between 3 seconds and one minute, then your right half of the brain is
developed normally.

If you find the man between one minute and 3 minutes, then the right half of your brain is functioning slowly and you need to take more protein. If you have not found the man after 3 minutes your right half of your brain is a mess, and the only advice is to look more for these types
of exercises to make that part of the brain stronger.

The man really is there.

In fact, once you find him, you cannot miss him thereafter.

Have fun...



How long did you take?

I took about 5 seconds… Aww… Me no right-brainer.

Ok the next one made me smug for a couple of weeks.

Test 2: Do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

This was stated in the email:
"If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it."

What did you see?

I could immediately see the dancer turning clockwise. Try as I might, I could not get my eyes to see it the other way round. “Wow! I’m such a strong right-brainer,” I thought to myself. I had wanted to send to all the "right brainer" ex colleagues and brag about how right brain I was.

It was only today that I found out the correct analysis and was so disappointed.

So now after reading the correct analysis, what did you see? Were you able to control what you see?


This was in the mail too.

Heart-Kun Puppy

A chihuahua puppy has become Japan's latest heart-throb after he was born with a heart-shaped mark on his coat.

The dog, named "Heart-kun", was born on May 18 at a pet store in northern Odate. Shop owner Emiko Sakurada, who bred over 1,000 puppies, believes his unusual markings have brought her luck.

"Since Heart-kun was born, not only I, but also many people who see him are getting luckier," Sakurada said.

The dog became a celebrity after a local television station aired pictures of him. Since then, Sakurada has been flooded with calls from people wanting to buy him, which she has turned down.

"It may sound strange but since I saw him, my luck has been picking up. I won the lottery and won a concert ticket. That must have been thanks to the power of Heart-kun," said Sakurada's sister, Maki Matsuyama.

Doesn’t Heart-kun have such puppy dog eyes???

sherin: you keep buying buying hor. naughty girl. but Abercrombie is nice lah! and not to mention LV, it makes mi drool~~~
Heya sorry for the slow reply. Haha ya lor… Well since I come home so late at night everyday, the only source of entertainment would be click click click, buy buy buy. Abercrombie is really nice! And I think your exams are coming right? All the best! You can do it! Oh yes, wanted to ask you for ur msn so can chat online but I’ll wait till I upgrade my msn ya?

ling: Abercrombie is like one of the greatest clothes to add in your wardrobe. Dun these clothes look charming? Oh ditch the speedy monogram. Everyone in town has dat!
I do agree with you about Abercrombie too. I used to think the T-shirts would outgrow the “high school” phase but even A-listers are donning them. I think I may well ditch the speedy monogram. It’s really everywhere… URGH… Time will tell me what to do.

maine: $700 for a top? That's really expensive lei. Ok now I roughly know what to expect. Anyways nice buys. Pink jacket is pretty. So it speedy monogram. Never liked squares.
Yup indeed… but my dress isn’t as ex as $700 so the tops aren’t good gauge. The pink jacket looked so pretty in the photo but their S size isn’t fitting on me so I had to forgo that and took the other 3. I think the damier (square) is nice too, depending on what bags and wallets. It looks very MAN… I like. <3

Canny: Jiayou sweetie!! I kind of understand ur situation. Always rem to rest & relax. Find some1 to chat with to relax & online / offline shopping is great too! I like Neverfull also.. but wanna save up.. So heart pain pain forgo it.. I like Abercrombie too. They have very nice polos for Men. Quality for cami etc for ladies is a bit sheer though. I like their jackets!! very nice & EX!!!~ The jacket in blue looks pretty!! Guys will nv understand why gals like to have so many bags, acc. clothes! For girls, Its just nv get enough!!!~ Hahaha...
I can’t find someone to chat and relax online coz msn forced me to upgrade and I haven’t upgraded as I’ve yet to back up my laptop. Afraid of hiccups… My sis’s pc kept shutting down after she upgraded her msn. After I’ve upgraded I’ll ask you for your msn. Yup A&F has really nice men polo. I really can’t decide which to choose. Asking my bf is useless coz he’ll ask me not to buy. For ladies, I love their classic and humour tees and jackets best. All others are too sheer and not worth the price. Surprised that you’ll say the blue jacket is nice coz that shade not as nice on the photo as compared to the pink one but in the end, the fit was great and I ditched the pink one. While guys will never understand why we are like that, we will never understand why they never understand. =P


More updates coming up!!! Stay tuned.

BTW my frenz are complaining that my blog has at least 3 pop-ups and it's super irritating. One of them even had pop-up blocker installed. To anyone who care to answer me, do you experience the same thing??? Coz I don't experience the pop ups at all and was unaware of it. I need to know if many of you are experiencing it and slowly find out what's wrong with my blog.


  1. Good to see that you are relaxing. This is the way. Nope I don't experience any pop up at all. I'm using my brother's computer.

    I took a long time to find the man in the coffee beans and I see the dancer spinning one direction and stop and spin again.

    Take care. Don't fall sick again.


  2. coffe bean man...1 sec!

    dancer...i only see one way, clockwise.

  3. Yen,
    Thanx for informing me about the no pop ups. =) I'll try not to fall sick.

    Wah 1sec! So fast. Yes the dancer really quite diff to see the other way eh.


I love reading sincere comments and hearing your voice.
