getting all sentimental

I felt bored so i went digging out photographs from years ago, when i was still a kid and my brothers were but cute little babies.



Aren't they adorable? Who knew they'll grow up into the menaces that they are now, spewing vulgarities and whatnots.



You must be thinking, "What the HECK happened to me now!?!?" I used to be soooooo cute too!

I think babies and kids just naturally look cute. Ugly babies should be killed off at birth.



I love my brothers...

Sometimes...

timbre pt2

Siglap South CC was damn crowded last Saturday.

There were 3 choirs practicing there. V. Chorale, V. Consort, and NUS/NTU(i dunno!) choir.

I saw a few people whom i recognised from my TPJC days. People like Kelvin Tiong and Jiun Pey (i still can't spell her name). It feels so weird to be singing in different choirs from them.

Anyhow, after practice, alvin and me went down to grab a bite at Food Republic, which is fast becoming my favourite place to eat in town, before meeting kw, mabs, xiuting and her bf, kelvin(?), at Timbre.

We laughed, bitched and made a general nuisance of ourselves. And that was before we even ordered anything to drink.



The drivers drank shirley temple, the vins drank snowball(which is a rocking drink), mabs had her cosmopolitan and i had white russian, which is basically baileys with milk which sucks. I'd rather have baileys on the rock.

Speaking of mabs and her cosmo...



My camera was trained on her the whole time cos the poor girl was flushed, and she had to keep hiding behind the menu. I tried to pull the menu away but she was too quick. Damn~!



We drained our cups relatively quickly (with a grimace from me everytime i took a sip), and continued to chat and boop to the music.

The company was great, the atmosphere was electric and the music was not too shady, even thou we had to endure the lead singer's heaving bosom.

The lead singer was a guy by the way.



Soon, mabs wanted to go home cos she had lessons the next day. So did alvin. And i had camp. So we all decided to call it a day.

Surprisingly, NR2 only took ard 40 mins, as compared to when i took it during new year, which felt damn bloody long.

I love Timbre.

p.s. mabs have u heard of this place called cafe iguana at riverside quay? my friend intro me, saying the drinks are cheaper than at timbre. maybe next time we go there?

please bear with me

thru my misery...

Somehow, i keep feeling the 14th of next month looming closer and i'm feeling oh so alone. I haven't felt this single since JC.

Nope, i'm not pining for those that have come and gone, i'm just have that general emptiness about myself again.

It's good cos in a way, it means i've really moved on from my disasterous 2nd relationship and now am looking for the next adventure. It's good because, even thou i still look back longingly at the happier times i've had, even thou i still tear at sad chinese love songs, i'm starting to do it less.

However, that doesn't dispell the dark creature called loneliness that has surfaced from inside of me.

If anything, the creature has grown stronger, and is growing stronger still. It doesn't help when my allies in camp have gone, and home is but a boring solitude.

Being in camp makes me realise how pathetic i am. Am i such a needy person to always have a need to scroll through my phonebook to search in vain for that elusive person to message, for that suitable person to call. The ending's always the same. There's no one.

Being at home makes me realise how inactive my life has become. How stagnant. All i do is hole up in my room and stare at the computer screen till i develop a throbbing headache. No one bothers me on msn, i have no one to bother who will bother about me.

Sometimes i think i have no friends. None that would actually come running out of their own accord to help me up when i fall. It's either i have to plead them for help, or they walk away with their gaze averted. I know that's not true, but sometimes it might just be.

Going out and having fun are all superficial to me. Fun's relative. Why do i have to pander to everyone's wants and complaints? I find just going out to grab coffee at Starbucks or Coffee Bean as enjoyable as say shopping, or watching a movie, or some planned activity or other.

Why can't things be spontaneous? Must i really have to book my friends a few days before hand and wait for them to check their schedule before giving me an answer? Well, unlike me, other people are just too busy with their enriched lives.

I don't know what's gotten over me. Maybe it's seeing different people's 21st birthday going by, and when i think of my own coming in a few months time, i feel oddly inadequate. Have i succeeded in ditching my wings and turning from the social butterfly back into an antisocial mealworm? I have failed to make lasting friendships in the institutions after secondary school. Maybe i'm just a mealworm after all.

You know, reading back, everything just doesn't make sense... Maybe i should keep my bleakness inside, and let this blog be what it appears to be, by someone who appears to have a life and many friends.

I'm just too drained for a proper entry about my fantastic, albiet short time at Timbre for the second time.

Maybe another day then.

And i leave you with this adorable picture of the girls.

much ado about nothing

My friend asked me to watch this youtube video cos it was funny.



At first i didn't understand why it was funny, only that it was about a maid, so i asked him and he kept saying "Maria Clara".

At first, i thought that was the maid's name.



Apparently, it's the name of the national costume of Philippine. Watch the video and you'll understand.


*****************************


My life has been pretty uneventful these days, thus the lack of updates.

Camp's been bleak as the campmates who were from my batch but ORDing in Feb are clearing leave. That leaves me in the mercy of the junior batches (who are all a few years older than me cos they came from ITE), who treats me like crap.

Seriously, they're giving me more and more shitty duties, even though i'm next in line to exit. I treated them so nicely in the past and i can't believe those dunno how to ying shui si yuan fuckers are turning around and fucking me in the face.

Urgh, i so didn't wanna go to camp that i "came down" with diarrhoea(i had to look at the medicine packet for the spelling) and flu and had to go down to the polyclinic to see the doctor.

While there, i think i caught something worse because the moment i came home, i really got got really sick.

My nose is going to fall off because of the constant blowing and sneezing.


*************************


Anyway, mabs came to me with the usual photoshop request, to make her into a spokesperson like how i always do to myself.

This time, the woman wanted to be spokesperson for Peugeot.



*Your wish is my command*


**************************


I received an email which i found to be quite interesting, and actually quite true for my part.




Is it accurate for you?

meaningful shit about love

To my friends who are still single…..
Love is like a butterfly,
The more u chase it,
The more it eludes u,
But if u just let it fly,
It will come to u when u least expect it,
Love can make u happy and often it hurts,
But love’s only special,
When u give it to someone who’s realli worth it,
So take your time n choose the best.

To my friends who are not so single…..
Love isn’t becoming someone else’s
“perfect person”
its about finding someone
who helps u become the best person u can be

To my friends who are playboy/playgirl type….
Never say “I love u” if u don’t care
Never talk about feelings
If they aren’t really there
Never touch a life if u mean to break a heart
Never say u will if u don’t plan to start
Never look in the eye when all u do is lie
The cruellest thing a guy can do to a girl
Is to let her fall in love
When he doesn’t intend to catch her fall
- and it works both ways……

To my friends who are married……….
Love is not about “its your fault”
But “I’m sorry”
Not “where are you”
But “I’m right here”
Not “how could you”
But “I understand”
Not “I wish u were”
But “I’m thankful u r”
To my friends who are engaged……
The true measure of compatibility is not the years spent together
But how good u r for each other

To my friends who are heartbroken
Heartbreaks last as long as you want
And cut as deep as u allow them to go
The challenge is not how to survive heartbreaks
But to learn from them


To my friends who are naïve…..
How to be in love:
Fall but don’t stumble,
Be consistent but not too persistent,
Share and never be unfair,
Understand and try not to demand and get hurt,
But never keep the pain.

To my friends who are possessive……..
It breaks your heart to see the one you love happy with someone else
But its more painful to know that the one u love is unhappy with u…

To my friends who are afraid to confess…..
Love hurts when u break up with someone
It hurts even more when someone breaks up with u
But love hurts the most when the person u love has no idea how you feel…

To my friends who are still holding on….
A sad thing about life is when u meet someone and fall in love
Only to find out in the end it was not meant to be
And that u have wasted years on someone who wasn’t worth it
If he wasn’t worth it now he’s not going to be worth it a year
Or 10 years from now
Let go…..


****************

Jun & Jen were a pair of young couple...Jun was veri charming & many girls could`t help falling in love with him... therefore, he became quite a flirt.

As for Jen, she was an ordinary girl with average looks. Although there were quite a
number of guys chasing her, jen only had Jun in her heart.although She knew that one day Jun would eventually leave her .. she still continued to love him wholeheartedly...

Jen loves rainy days...she loves playing in the rain, & whenever Jun wanted to join her, she'll always stop him from joining.

Jun then ask her: Why don't you let me join you?

Jen replied: Err..er..because i don't want you to fall sick.

Jun then ask her again: If playing in the rain will make me fall sick, then why are you still doing it?

But each time Jen will always keep quiet & smile at him...

Although Jun was`t able to join her, he felt happy. To him, as long as Jen was happy, he'll be happy as well.

However, nothing last long... Jun soon fell for another girl after two months. He even love the girl more deeply den he love jen.

One day, while Jun & Jen were having their dinner , Jun told Jen that this would be their last dinner together... Jen looked at him. She knew dat this was going to happen, but she choose not to ask any farther...Jun then requested for a break up.. And Jen...she accepted willingly... partly because, she knew... Jun was just like the wind...never stop
at any point.

That night..it was to be the last time Jun send Jen home.. Jen kept veri quiet... although deep down she wanted to know the reasons but she choose not to ask. Just when Jen was about to step into the lift, Jun stop her.

He said: Jen, I'm really sorry that i've let you down. But i'll never forget those days when i see you playing in the rain...those are the most happy & unforgottable memories i had with you.

After listening to Jun, Jen could't help it but cried.. Jun hugged her tightly.

He said: Jen, there's one question i wanted to ask you long ago... Why is it everytime when you are playing in the rain, you just wouldn't allow me to accompany you?

Jen was stunned..

pausing for a few seconds,

Jen replied...

Because...

Because i don't wish to let you know...

I was crying..

*****************

My husband was an engineer. Since I met him, he was always an unflappable rock in my life. I knew he always had his feet firmly planted on the ground, and it seemed that no matter what else went crazy, he would be the one constant.

Three years of romance, and two years of marriage later, I got tired.

He was the most unromantic man I know. He never bought me flowers, he never surprised me, and nothing changed in our marriage.

After some time, I finally found the courage to tell him that I wanted to leave him. He just sat there, speechless. My heart froze... what kind of man was I married to that didn't even know what to say to make me stay?

After a while, he spoke, "What can I do to change your mind?". "I will stay if you can give me a good answer to this question,"

I replied coldly."If I asked for a flower that grew on a cliff, and you knew that getting it for me means certain death, would you get it for me?". His face grew troubled.

"Can I give you an answer tomorrow morning?" he asked. Hearing that kind of answer, my heart died. I knew that I could never be happy with a man who couldn't even give me a answer straight away.

The next morning, when I woke up, he was missing. In the living room, under a warm glass of milk, was a note. My eyes grew misty as I read it...

"Dear, I have my answer. I will never pick the flower for you if it meant certain death. But before you leave, I hope you can give me a chance to give you my reasons....

You will always sit in front of the computer and type about for the whole day, but everytime you will end up in tears cause your formating will always go all over the place... I need my fingers, to do the formating for you, so your tears will become smiles.

You like to travel, but would always get lost... I need my eyes, so that I can bring you to the nicest places on earth.

Everytime you leave the house, you would always forget your keys... I need my legs, so that I can run home to open the door for you.

You never knew how to take care of yourself... I need my hands to help you get rid of the pesky white hair you hate so much when you grow old, to trim your nails, to feed you.

So you see, that's why I can't pick the flower for you. Until I find someone who loves you more than I do, I will need my body to take care of you.

If you accept my reasons, then open the door, where I will be waiting with your favourite muffin."

With tears streaming from my eyes, I opened the door, and there he stood, with a extremely worried look on his face. He still had nothing to say, but just stood there waving the packet he had in his hand in front of me. And then I knew for a fact that I will never find another man who will ever love me as much as he does.

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean that they don't love you with all they have...

p.s. pardon the bad spelling and punctuation. i stole this from somewhere and i can't be bothered to edit it.

birthdaies

Over the weekend, a few friends celebrated their 21st birthday.

Soo Chin had hers at this RC in Ang Moh Kio on Friday.



At first, i thought it was such a weird place to have a birthday party, but it turned out to be a pretty successful one, with karaoke singing, lucky draws and of cos, tears from the birthday girl and close friends.

I also found out that two of my other friends had birthdays on the 13th.



Hui Shan and Jean, both of you tong nian tong yue tong re sheng! Let's go kbox together soon! The free karaoke at sc's party really making me crave for it again!

So far, i've not gotten to know anyone who share the same birthday as me.

Anyway, i've joined Victoria Chorale! Hurrah! I miss choral singing, and all those kboxing hasn't been helping much. I actually couldn't go up during the warm ups.

I went for the first practice at Siglap South CC on Saturday and boy was it weird to step into a totally new choir. Luckily for me i had jw and alvin for company, but they're in bass and i was in tenor!

Speaking of which, the choir is grossly unproportioned. There's two times more guys than girls! And the guys are usually louder, especially the tenors.

But who cares cos i got to sing Janger!

After choir, jw ran off and alvin had to go off too, so i was left alone. Luckily i found friends to have dinner and chill with.

Met up with Wee Keong and Kenny for dinner at the very budget Pastamania before heading to TCC for drinks and a chat.

Look what Kenny did with my phone.



I've found someone more narcissistic and more of a camwhore than me!

How rare is that?

of dentists and chestnuts

A revolutionary new product has hit the market!



iWhite has left dentists baffled and patients smiling wider and whiter!

Don't believe me? Look at the amazing results that Mediacock Artiste, Juni Goh, has achieved just by using iWhite for ONE day!



The picture may be abit gory, but YOU CANNOT DENY THE RESULTS!

Just listen to what Juni has to say:

"If i wasn't the spokesperson for iWhite, i'll still use it! But i AM the spokesperson and so you shouldn't listen to me."



iWhite REALLY WORKS!


-------------------


Right. Hope you gundus aren't so silly to fall for that. GO TO THE DENTIST LA.

Yesterday, left house at 8am, went to National Dental Center at Outram Park, reached home at 1pm, left house at 2.30pm, went to National Dental Center again, left at 5pm to Far East, proceeded to Bugis at 7pm and reached home at 12am.

I spent more time in the train than i did at home.

I went to NDC so much was cos in the morning i had my wisdom tooth consultation and while i was there, the dentist asked me if i would like to remove the stain on my front teeth. I was like "Can remove ar?"

They had to reschedule me for that and in the end, i was to go back on the same day to do it.

The dentist asked me when was the last time i went for a cleaning and i was like thinking, "Shit, the last time i even went to see dentist was before A Levels."

So i told him that and he was quite surprised cos he said my teeth were in quite good condition.

But apparently i have a birth defect that causes the top layer of my teeth to corrode as i age, thus explaining the gaps in my teeth. But it wasn't much of a problem according to the dentist.

The dentist proceeded to drill away and in the end, i had to keep my mouth opened for one whole hour! In my mind i was thinking about my wisdom tooth operation and how i was going to tahan through that if i felt so restless for this one also.

And i was given 2 jabs of the numbing juice to numb my pain. It tasted damn bitter la. I'm going to die when they jab me FOUR times for my wisdom tooth op.

Finally the dentist was done, but he seemed quite unhappy about something. He passed me the mirror and i could immediately see what the problem was. The filling he used turned out to be slightly off-coloured from my original tooth! Goodness.

He had the audacity to ask me if i was disappointed. I was admittedly quite, but after that procedure, i couldn't take another moment lying down and just told him it was ok.

The dentist told me that if i really wanted it to be perfect, there's a clinic in Paragon that offers aesthetic dentistry and he offered to refer me to them.

At first i was thinking, "SIAO, sure damn ex one", but then again, maybe if he referred me, it'll be cheaper, so i asked him for it.

And he gave me this.



OMGWTF!!!

Yup, it's exactly what you think it is, a piece of paper ripped off his notepad, with the address of the clinic and the name of the dentist written on it.

"Uh, ok, thanks" was all i said before i walked out.

After that, i rushed down to Far East to get a haircut before rushing down to bugis to meet Alvin and KW for dinner.


stop doing MY face!

We were going to watch Forbidden Chestnuts: Portrait of a Brokewristback Geisha, a play by Jonathan Lim, Hossan Leong, Rodney Oliveiro and Judy Ngo.



If you're feeling bored and aching to do something different, i urge you to grab your best friend and head down to watch this. It's a parody of everything under the sun!

The parodies of Deathnote the movie were the BEST SHIT! The dyslexic girl who kept spelling the name wrongly and then crying anime-ly after that and the stupid girl who wrote her own name in because she didn't want people to steal her book were CLASSIC!

You seriously have to watch it for yourselves! Quick go book now!

I love my teeth!



disclaimer: please note that i do not have iwhite. the pictures are all photoshopped. i wasn't holding anything at the time the photo was taken. please do not be so dumb. thank you.

Edit: I HATE MY TEETH! The filling's too big and when i close my mouth, the back teeth cannot bite down fully. I ended up swallowing my lunch just now! How ar?!?

A rough estimate

What's 50+32+6.2+65+30+28+10?

It's a whole lot of money that i predict is going to be spent again today.

Just got home from dental consultation at SGH about my wisdom tooth. Turns out i've gotta pull all four of the buggers out next month, starting with the two on my right on the 2nd, and the remaining after CNY. I'm gonna have 10 days of MC next month. So not looking forward to it.

While i was there, the dentist saw my chipped-off-and-mended-back-in-primary-school left front tooth and suggested to have the filling changed because it had been discoloured over the years. He estimated the cost of the change to be around $55 to $65 bucks, but (there's always a but), if the filling proved to be too large to hold, i might have to get it crowned, which would cost around a cool $200.

I hope the filling holds.

it's time to clear debts

I know i haven't been exactly blogging much, so this entry is gonna make up for everything. Get ready for your servers to lag cos there's a shitload of pictures to load!

I'll be starting from the latest, and going back all the way to Christmas! Are you ready?

080107



Met up with my closest 1st 3 months classmate, Huishan, for a day of singing, shopping, sushi and movie!

In the end, i spent $236.



A large portion of it went to this GUESS wallet, which i love.

Somebody kill me.

060107

Spent the day just nuahing at home and at night, my whole family went to Turf City for steamboat.



Was taking rubbish shots of my brothers when suddenly, these two other kids appear and boy were they photo whores too. The smallest boy actually came up to me and asked to see the photos taken, after which he would clap and laugh gleefully.

So cute.

020107

Went down to Settlers Cafe @ Holland V for the first time with the gang.



At first, the games we played were quite toned down and we were unusually quiet as compared to the other tables. This soon changed though, as we started playing reaction games and that made everyone scream and shriek shamelessly.

That was more like it, and everyone had a smashing time!

This is abit late, but, HAPPY NEW YEAR!~!~!

Met Alvin and mabs at Marina Square to catch some fireworks.



It was freakingly crowded and just as we secured a seat on the grass, it started raining, sending everyone running for cover. Mabs was so sad that she might not be able to see the fireworks afterall, but after running up and down Marina Square, we went back to where we were in the first place and caught the fireworks together with like a quarter of Singapore's population.

After that, mabs brought us to this super cool chill out pub called Timbre where we just hung out with our drinks and the live band's music.

It was quite a memorable new year for me.

301206



Met up with the campmates for lunch at Paragon's Crystal Jade Imperial Palace.

I can just imagine the tai tais and towkays that frequent the place looking at us with disdain.

271206

Met up with my dearest BMT clique for some catching up.



Had dinner at Essential Brews and then dessert at Coffee Club @ Holland V.

I look fat. I am fat.

251206

MERRY CHRISTMAS!~!~!

Christmas eve was spent in camp. Christmas day was spent having FUN!



Went down to Raffles Hotel to watch the Victorians carol. After which, we headed down to Queensway in ZC and KW's car to Rong Guang for dinner. Jumping after dinner is never a good idea.



After dinner, we drove down to alvin's place for some screaming, card playing, log cake eating and alcoholism.

Alvin saw my jowling photo in the past and wanted one for himself. In the end, everyone tried to do one. Tried being the keyword here.

Enjoy freaking yourselves out.




And that spells the end of this entry. I hope you guys had fun looking at the photos. The words are actually redundant.

happy new ear pull your ear!

Whew, just got back home after a long night rider journey, and a very short taxi one.

The best new year sms of the night comes from Ridza.

"Happy new year! Pull your ear. Let's make it clear. A new year is a new test. Don't be a pest! Remember to do your best. But also must rest. With warmest regards."

It's retarded and doesn't make much sense but it rhymes so i like it. Haha!

And the new year pic of the moment goes out to the one of me and mabs.



BFFs we shall be!

I had a great time out with Alvin and Mabs.

(mabs: let's go chill at Timbre more often!)


More pics when i feel like editing them.

Happy 2007 ya'll!!! =)))

Listening

I don't want you to think of me as an eavesdropper so I'll just say that I'm listening to music instead of my neighbour's maid flirting with my other neighbour's driver.

Reading

I like it when people think of me as an intellectual so I will list a bunch of intellectual-sounding books here, even those I don't plan to read.

Viewing

Since I can't list my porn collection here, I'll just leave it this way until I can force myself to watch non-pornographic stuff, which may or may not happen.
