reg: hey gal! glad you're better now!! your parents are so cute haha..oo and your blue coach bag is gorgeous!!
Hey Hey!! Firstly, sorry about the hurried sms just now. Was quite engrossed over dinner that I was shocked to see all the sms at once and replied them in a haste. I saw tam’s comment about meeting up soon and I think that’s a great idea. Oh and congrats on leading a more “normal” life now. Haha…


23 Aug 07, 22:34
Evan: Yeah. We've never seem to have enough time to catch up!
Always the case babe. Always the case. Hope you dun get a hangover later! If I were well, I’ll sure join you! Miss clubbing with you too. And I sure hope my sms-es just now didn’t sound rushed.

vee: i tink u look prettier in curls ... esp loose ones ... very sweet and demure
Hi vee, thanx for your sweet comments. Hmm… I’d better let my bf know that he’s the only person who hates me with curls! Btw how did you stumble here? From FP? LD?


26 Aug 07, 04:32
Brendan: cool blog JO and you're beautiful to top it off:)
Hi there, thanx for the kind words. May I know if you’re from LD too? Seldom have “stranger” guys around here.

maine: i will luv to see a pict of the dress.. care to share how much u blow.. avana is the one at ground floor lido right? it looks expensive.
Hi maine, no worries… you’ll be able to see lotsa pics of the dress when I blog about my D&D the next time. How much I blow ah? Gee… better not say la… afraid that people would think I’ve wasted $$ on an ugly dress. And you’re right about the location of avana.

Evan: Ooh... I heard about the female chinese doc quite a while back. heard she's really good. you should find time to pay her a visit!
Wow! Didn’t know she’s so popular. I’m hearing more and more people saying that clinic is well known and queue even longer than donuts at raffles.

Canny: Notti U, didnt listen to doctor advise to rest more & really REST means rest, not to be bother by work. We all know its hard cos often are tied down with work. But come to think of it, being healthy is wealth. So, babe, must be guai k.. listen to doctor's advise and rest plenty!! Get well soon!! *hugs* And ya, I saw the same tissue box in one of the shop here & I tht of u on the spot.. And jokingly tell hubby I want to buy one too! Haha...!! =P
*sheepish look* But I can’t help being bothered. Haha.. It’s just my nature. Well, a lot of positive thinking helped in recovering myself too but I must say I slept A LOT the past 3 days so that’s quite a lot of rest. Ooh… they have those cute tissue over in the States? And so sweet of you to think of me. Must be thinking of me doing unglam stuff like blowing nose. Wahaha…

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

So here I am not abiding by my new rules of forcing myself to sleep early. Can't help it. Hair is still a little wet. And I've slept quite a lot the past few days. Never knew replying to tags and comments at one shot takes so much time. Will update my blog with more cheery posts soon... that is if I recover fully. Did lotsa positive thinking before I slept and I felt a lot better that I could attend d&d. A little groggy though. I sure hope I didn't blabber a lot of nonsense just now.

Thanx to all the lovelies who sms-ed me after reading my previous post. I'm sorry if I've forgotten to reply any of you or sounded like I'm in a hurry coz all those times I read the message was when I was sleeping away or being too engrossed in preparing for d&d just now. I was really touched by some of the sms-es.

Ok I'm writing ungrammatically and blabbering nonsense. I should sleep now. It'll be an early day later.

ZZZzzzz

Sickly August

I was scrolling through all my August posts and I realised the entries were all about me being sick. So sian. I wish to blog about happier stuff but I’ve fallen sick AGAIN.

HATE HATE HATE my body!

On Sunday, I felt lethargic and nauseous so after my tuition, I decided to take a nap before going out to meet the FF group. The nap was horrible. I was coughing so badly that I rolled over to the side my bed and puked on the floor. My chest and tummy hurt so much that I just froze at that position. Then, I puked once more.

Later in the day and throughout the night, I was down with high fever. I was so weak that I’ve got no strength to sit up. If I sat up, I would hyperventilate and feel nauseous. Dissipated energy. Useless muscles. I felt like I was in a body that didn’t belong to me.

Now, my mum is one of those who always scolds me whenever I fall sick. This time, she was really worried. My body was so hot that she started sponging me with ice for fear that I would become stupid. My dad would pop in every now and then to check on me and to turn the towel the other side. Late at night, kh came and sayang me. He brought starfruit juice and I was lying down and drinking from a straw like an invalid. Kh said I’m such a spoilt brat whenever I’m sick.

Yesterday, I went to the same doc and she said it’s still the same upper respiratory tract infection. It got worse because of the unfinished course of antibiotics the other time. She said this illness needs 7 full days to recover. And when she said 7, she meant 7 days of complete rest. No strenuous work. Then she started talking about flu is no joke and 600 people in Singapore die from flu related illness annually blablabla…

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

I caught Evan Almighty on Saturday. It was quite funny, I love all the animals as well as the actor starring as Evan’s oldest son. Most of all, I love this quote:

“Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient?

If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous?

If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other?”


No wonder when I prayed for health, I became even sicker. God must be giving me the opportunity to wake myself up after my delirium, to warn me that I should start to worry about my health and not worry about work.

After I recover from this long illness, I will make it a point to:

- Go for a full body check up
My doc was advising me to take things step by step. First, recover from this illness, then go for body check up. No point doing all at the same time when I’m still sick.

- Visit a Chinese physician
My colleague and sister recommended the same Chinese physician all the way at Jurong. Heard that she can ba3 mai4 (check the pulse) and roughly discern what’s wrong with her patients. I’m also worried at the amount of western medicine I’m downing. It’s time to go for more natural healing.

- Visit a dentist
The gum near my wisdom tooth is swollen again even after I poked it to release the blood inside. My teeth could be one of the triggers for my frequent headaches.

- Put on more weight
People who see me everyday like my parents have started to comment that I’m too thin. My mum who used to see how much I eat and think I’m fat compared to all the mediacorp actresses has started to worry that I’m looking too skinny now. In fact, everyone around me who sees me every week will comment that I’m getting thinner and thinner as the weeks go by.

I don’t see myself as horrendously skinny because at least I know that I do eat my 3 full meals. Kh also doesn’t find me skinny because he always sees how I stuff myself with food whenever we go out. But well, if the rest of the world feels that I’m losing weight drastically, I think I’d better do something.

- I must sleep early
I’m insomniac. But I must force myself to sleep early next time.

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

I feel so fresh after bathing and washing hair. Imagine not bathing for 3 days!!! YUCKS! Some things never change. I’m going back HQ for a while to finish my kindergarten materials. I hope I’m well enough for D&D tomorrow. I feel so weak I don’t think I’ll enjoy myself.

Will reply to all tags and comments later. =D

It’s been 3 weeks…

My throat has recovered but each time I teach, my vocal chords will start to hurt again and I'll just lose my voice. I’ve already used my diaphragm as much as possible, refrained from talking too loudly and too much, engaged different students to read out as many passages as possible but to no avail.

I’m still coughing and blowing thick green phlegm and mucus.

EEEeeewwww…. That’s disgusting I know.

My parents really know how to cheer me up even as I blow my nose and fill the dustbin to the brim with germs.

I kept commenting that this range of Baby Looney Tunes box tissue is sooooo CUTE.



When the last box of ke ai Baby Sylvester ran out, my mum instructed my dad to buy the Baby Looney Tunes again.

She specially chose the one with all the baby characters together to put it in my room.



Makes blowing nose abit more fun. Duncha think?

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


Met up with evan 2 Saturdays ago.





Why don't we ever have enough time to catch up??? =D

Hope you managed to take leave for your France trip. When the date draws nearer I may bug you to help me buy the LoVe which I haven't bought till now. Incorrigible... yes. Or maybe I should just save the money.

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


I went shopping alone for my D&D dress. Theme is Masquerade, I didn’t intend to dress strictly according to the theme but whatever dresses I have at home simply will not do! The event is next Wednesday. Time was running out and I was so desperate that I didn’t mind splurging on a dress if I could find one I really fancy. I was prepared to trawl Mandarin and Hilton Gallery and even Palais Renaissance. Then, I walked into Avana at Shaw and never had to proceed to search for my dress anymore.


Its unique style, its fit, its intricate detail, its exclusive design (only one piece available the whole of sg). That was the most expensive dress I’ve ever bought.

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


I WANNA chop off the head and limps of someone who did the same to a cat!

My dad said it was on the papers. I can't believe such cruel acts exist in sg. The person who did that IS A GODAMN BEAST! I wish he/she/it burn in hell.


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

I didn't mention this before on my blog. My heart feels so much lighter after I've decided not to take up the Dip in Edu. I think I've made the right choice not signing on the dotted line. I feel so much more qing song.

=)

I wanna work freely and not be tied down by anything.

=D

The virus are waging war in my body again

I slept till noon today feeling very weak. My cough came back. My throat hurts again. My nose is leaking like nobody’s business and each time I sneeze, my throat just feels so raw. Having an achey face and head too due to all the sneezing and blowing.

I thought I was on the road to recovery but all these came back.

I’m damn angry with MYSELF and my STUPID BODY!!! WHY CAN’T I RECOVER SMOOTHLY???

My mum started scolding me again. She loves to scold me whenever I’m sick. But this time, she scolded me for a reason. She accused me of not finishing my medicine which I vehemently denied till she told me that she had found 2 more of my antibiotic tablets. They were still sealed in the foil but the whole thing came out from the tablet Ziploc bag and into the plastic bag which I’ve been careless enough to miss.

No wonder all my symptoms came back. I thought I had finished all my antibiotics!

Shit la… now those viruses will be even stronger than their dead counterparts.

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

I know all of you must be very sick of the previous song on my blog by now as I’m getting quite sick of it too even though I don’t turn on my speaker 99% of the time.

Love the new Maroon 5 song playing on my blog now. Love the funky beat and tune and the way the chorus is sung in a slight falsetto. Went to search for the lyrics and was horrified at the first verse and the f***. Not like I’m a prude but I wasn’t expecting such a tune to have such sexually charged lyrics. Wikipedia explained that besides being a song about a relationship gone wrong, it’s also about the frustration at the state of politics and US role in the Iraq war..

Makes Me Wonder
[Verse]
I wake up with blood-shot eyes
Struggled to memorize
The way it felt between your thighs
Pleasure that made you cry
Feels so good to be bad
Not worth the aftermath, after that
After that
Try to get you back

[Bridge]
I still don't have the reason
And you don't have the time
And it really makes me wonder
If I ever gave a f**k about you

[Chorus]
Give me something to believe in
Cause I don't believe in you
Anymore, Anymore
I wonder if it even makes a difference to try
(Yeah)
So this is goodbye

[Verse]
God damn, my spinning head
Decisions that made my bed
Now I must lay in it
And deal with things I left unsaid
I want to dive into you
Forget what you're going through
I get behind, make your move
Forget about the truth

[Bridge]
I still don't have the reason
And you don't have the time
And it really makes me wonder
If I ever gave a f**k about you

[Chorus 1 + 2]
Give me something to believe in
Cause I don't believe in you
Anymore, Anymore
I wonder if it even makes a difference,
It even makes a difference to try (yeah)
And you told me how you're feeling
But I don't believe it's true
Anymore, Anymore
I wonder if it even makes a difference to cry
(Oh no)
So this is goodbye

[Breakdown]
I've been here before
One day a week
And it won't hurt anymore
You caught me in a lie
I have no alibi
The words you say don't have a meaning
Cause..

[Bridge]
I still don't have the reason
And you don't have the time
And it really makes me wonder
If I ever gave a f**k about you and I...
and so this is goodbye

[Chorus 1 + 2]
Give me something to believe in
Cause I don't believe in you,
Anymore, Anymore
I wonder if it even makes a difference,
It even makes a difference to try
And you told me how you're feeling
But I don't believe it's true
Anymore Anymore
I wonder if it even makes a difference to cry
(Oh no)
So this is goodbye
So this is goodbye, yeah (x 3)
(Oh no)

Maybe my prac crit not zai but I doubt anybody else can unravel its double meaning. Whatever la. I just like the tune. =)

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

I went to collect these from the Post Office today. After a few should-i-should-i-nots, I just went with my heart.


Got the large blue hobo and I didn't regret my choice of size and colour. So much prettier than the classic brown one.



And I've also decided to get this cute floral bee casual handcarry when the seller offered me a great price. This is so much roomier than my demi pouch. Now I have a hand carry bag which can fit my fat wallet, 2 handphones and camera with so much more space left.

Love my new buys!

It’s early but I’m so drowsy from all the cold and cough medicine. I think I'll concuss as soon as I click "publish". ZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.........

S.I.C.K

Major sickness.

Throat hurts so badly it's an agony to swallow saliva.

No voice.

Coughing.

Runny nose.

Headache.

High fever.

Vomitting.


Doc said it's upper respiratory tract infection.

1st time in my life that I was "awarded" 3 days mc immediately.

I'm forbidden to strain my throat too much too.

That means no teaching these few days.

How I long to be healthy.

Although I'm not good at image training, I'll image all the good things for you.

Although I'm a non practising Christian, I'll pray for you.

I hope everything will go well. If you need a shoulder to cry on, mine is available for you.

*BIG HugZ*
