Random

Random ramblings

I wish I could throw all work aside and go for a break. However, before I could even throw any work aside, more work was thrown at me.

I’m already struggling to finish my primary English materials, now that cyn has left the co to pursue her dreams, I’m left to take over her kindergarten materials.

How to handle all the tasks at once? I’m not sure. I’m handling quite fine for now but as the weeks go on, I can’t say for sure. I’m able to manage fine now cos I’ve sacrificed…

SLEEP
3-6 hours of sleep every night. I can’t sleep in peace too. I must go to bed only when I’m very exhausted before I can sleep well. Because of the lack of quality sleep, I feel really lethargic in the day.

TV time
For someone who doesn’t watch much TV, I’ve stopped watching the only drama serial I catch every week – Heroes On Starworld -- for the past 3 weeks. Now, I can’t catch the plot.

Shopping
It’s the Great Singapore Sale period and I only shopped for 1 day for the whole of June. Even on days when I met kh, it would just be dinner. By the time we finished eating, most shops had closed. I must buy all the things I wanna buy before the GST hike in July. Cannot procrastinate anymore. Time… I need time. Can I buy time?

Family and Friends
I behave like a complete toot to my family. I’ll be sitting at the table and marking my worksheets. Whoever who talks to me will be greeted with my dazed look and a nod of head to acknowledge their presence. Don’t expect me to be listening to whatever they are saying coz by then, I would have switched to auto pilot and mark mark mark. Nobody at home really bothers me as talking to Simba would elicit more human response than talking to me.

Meeting with friends who have not met up for months and even years haven been pushed back till the cows came home, went out to the fields to graze and came home again.

Surfing and blogging
I log on only to check my mails. Oh and also Yahoo auctions. Hehz… That’s a bit of a life for a no lifer like me. I need to blog to relieve some inner stress. It’s therapeutic. But now, I can’t find the time to blog coz whatever free time was used to do my work. However, I will try as much as possible to update myself on my friends by reading their blogs.

Being myself
I think I’m losing a little of myself bit by bit. But I still behave like a bimbo.

For now, whenever it seems like all is wearying, I’ll just tell myself… Hey! There are people out there who are much worse… Working from Monday to Sunday… reporting for work at 8am and not leaving the office till 3am. There are people out there who are much worse… getting even lesser sleep every night and having no time to even switch on the tv. There are people out there who are much worse… don’t have any family to bother them with and don’t have any friends to keep. There are people out there who are much worse… for they do not even know themselves, much less lose themselves.

I would also try to appreciate simple pleasures in life (like how I finally had the luxury to catch SHREK 3 after A MONTH since its release). Only then, I would find that my life isn’t all that bad after all.

Anyone has more information on brain scan?

My headache and vomitting spells have gotten worse. It used to be only headache and feeling nauseous but now, the pain is so bad that Panadol Extra cant cure it and I do not even down Panadol frequently to get immuned to it. The nausea has been replaced by actual puking. Happened 4 times within a period of one month. Recently when I visited a relief doctor, he asked, "Have you ever thought of going for those scans? I was shocked coz my family doctor and the doctor downstairs always allude these to stress, lack of sleep etc. I need more 1st hand information on these scans. Thanx in advance! =)

Wicked!


--> Are you right brain or left brain? Try this!

First, identify yourself as right or left brain person:

1. Hold your hands together, as if you were praying.
Look at your hands. If you see

Left thumb is below the right thumb ---> left brain
Right thumb is below the left thumb ---> right brain

2. Fold your arms in front of you (as if you are angry)

Right arm above left arm ---> left brain
Left arm above right arm ---> right brain

Based on 1+2 (order important), below is the interpretation of your
personality:

Right-Left
Considerate, traditional, indirect type

can instinctively read other's emotion, and respond friendly by natures.
Although not very into taking initiatives in moving forward, but this
person
will always take a step back in supporting others. Stable personality and
considerate, give others a being protected feeling. But the weakness is
they cannot say no;
regardless how unwilling they are, they will take care
of others.

Right-Right
Loves challenges type

Straightforward. Once they decided on one thing, will take action right
away. Very curious, and love challenges. Dare to face dangers without
thinking through (sometimes foolishly). Their weakness is they don't
listen
to others, will filter in only what whey want to hear in a conversation,
and very subjective. However, because of their straightforward attitude,
they tend to be fairly popular.

Left-Left
Dedicated, cold, perfectionist

Very logical in all aspects. The only way to defeat (or win over) him/her
is through reasons. Has a lot of prides, and feeling strongly about doing
the right thing. If they are your friends, they are very trustworthy.
However, if they are your opponents, they will be very tough to deal with.
Because they can be very "anal" as a perfectionist, they usually leave a
bad impression of
being hard to deal with when first met.

Left-Right
Likes to take care of others, leader type

Has a cool and keen observation ability to see through situations, yet
still can be considerate in others needs. Because of their cool and calm
nature, and strong sense of responsibility, they tend to become head of a
group. Popular among people. However, they may not be able to help
themselves in meddling because they want to take care of others too much.
Very concerned about how others view them, and always on alert.

I'm a right-left. Which one are you?


I was reading dawyang.com the other day and found out that she’s got the same lappie as me!



I have to agree that it is such a beauty indeed. Love how the speakers are integrated all around the buttons... Love the cool blue lights... Love the touch scroll volume... I love the size. Even though it is not considered small, I find that it looks compact and handy. Hahaha… So clever of kh to cheat this laptop from his bro. The pictures cetainly don't do justice to the beauty of this laptop. This is one laptop which will make me forget about the...

Pink Asus Leather Notebook series.

Oh and damn that smile. She seems to be smirking because she has like the cutest notebook on this planet.

Pretty please? It only takes a few seconds to plug in the usb cable to transfer the photos to your computer. It only takes a few minutes to upload them onto Multiply. wy and ts has uploaded theirs. Can lv, my, sd, rei (anyone else) upload yours please? Arigatoo gozaimasu!

*Smooches and hugz and puss-in-boots eyes*

Hello? May I know who is this? I sent my hp for servicing and lost all contacts

I hate it. It’s just like a déjà vu. I remembered assuring that I would not ask the “May I know who is this?” question ever again when you all sms. It seems like I have to take back my words.

Hello gal! I didn’t know you’re still reading. Heh… Of coz no offence la. I know I’ve wasted money to rebond but to achieve that curls in the picture, I do not even have to style it. That’s a major plus point. However, now my curls are getting straight again. How I hate my hair.

sherin
Wooh… pay day. Haha you sounded like you were going “window shopping”. Open and close windows. Yes, it’s good to reward yourself especially since you know you’ve worked hard. I’m so gonna reward myself too. We better reward ourselves before the GST hikes. Good excuse to spend $$!

Canny
Wahaha… For a moment there, I thought you were asking me in Hokkien “Ho bo?” I was wondering why Canny speak like Ah Beng Ah Lian. I reread again and realised you were talking about the coach hobo bag. Wahaha… Yup yup… time to update… everyone’s been telling me that. *Hehz*

xtina
Yo bz gal is finally here reading ultra back dated entries. I’ll write a longer reply in the comments section where you left your mark in a while ya?


I'm so bo liao to do this.
Your Blog Should Be Yellow

You're a cheerful, upbeat blogger who tends to make everyone laugh.
You are a great storyteller, and the first to post the latest funny link.
You're also friendly and welcoming to everyone who comments on your blog.


Yellow? Hmm is sandy colour considered yellow?

I’m left with only 1 more P2 composition to mark. But I’m like so so so lazy that I decided to just leave it for later. But, I’m feeling sleepy now. Oh what the heck. I'll just go and sleep. It'll be an early day tomorrow, I mean later.

Nitez nitez! ;P

Which bag to bag? I'm getting carried away.

A few days ago, I met Sam, my friend cum financial advisor and she really is EVIL!

“I’m going to the States! Is there anything I can get for you?”

“Abercrombie! But maybe not,” I stopped short.

Although tempted, my angel reasoned with my devil that I could get it cheaper here and not to forget that my tutee’s mum might give me free A&F stuff every now and then.

Oblivious of my inner struggles, Sam continued, “I’ve got a list of orders from COACH. Why don’t you go home and surf coach.com and let me know again?”

Surf coach.com I did. I went home with fingers willing my mind and went click click click.

Their patchwork designs greeted me once I clicked “handbags” and my heart went fluttering at the sight of all the pretty lovelies.

Love this patchwork satchel but the “$458” lying innocuously under crossed it out of my list immediately. And that isn’t even in Yusof dollars!



Focus, focus. I’m looking out for either a casual hobo bag or a pouch-like mini bag (not as mini as my current demi pouch) which is formal enough for functions.

Ever since I’ve changed my hp and switched back to using my old camera, these could not fit into my demi pouch anymore, together with my sms line and wallet of course.

I either need to buy a bigger handbag to accommodate all my knick knacks or buy a slimmer camera. Maybe I could just do both. *winks*

These are what I’ve short listed: the more affordable ones.

Which little devil should I choose? I sort of like the 1st one most. Reminds me of a cow which produces cocolate milk.


Or should I get a hobo bag?

Absolutely love their multi-colour hamptons weekend. So colourful and cheery but the brown classic seems to be a more sound choice.

Should I choose both a small handbag and a hobo? But then again, Sam said no guarantees. I hope that whatever I want would be sold out and I can use the money and top up loads more to buy these…





LV is getting more and more common, but I like these timeless classics.

I must not get carried away. I asked kh for opinions and he said he is fine with anything as long as I don't let him know how much I will be spending. Such constructive comments.


~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Have you ever heard of rebonded curls?

Anyway, look at what my rebonded hair has become. The day I decided not to blow dry my broom hair straight, I got this...


Nowadays, whenever people ask, “I thought you rebonded your hair?”

I would reply with, “I THOUGHT I rebonded my hair!”

Any of you with perming and rebonding experience reading this, can share your views please?

I’ve asked people around me with permed and subsequently rebonded hair if it is normal for rebonded hair to curl due to previous perming and they all said “no”. They could not figure out what had happened but all said that my curls were nice because they look so natural. I’m beginning to like this style but hey, I've spent $$ on getting my hair straight ok? Something has to be done! I'll definitely NOT go for another rebonding.
