The Right Call

Was at Soho today when Chewy needed to go to the restroom and there was, of course, none in sight. I simply said, "Let's go to Prada then. A designer boutique is your best bet". You may think it's weird but that's the first thing that popped into my mind.


It turned out that, as usual, I made the right call.

Yes, the boutique is all fabulously designed with interesting parallel lanes of display and nicely decorated with colourful murals of famous ladies and brightly lit with unassuming tracklights and thoughtfully merchandised with dazzling pieces, dah-ling.It's Prada! Of course the boutique is creme de le creme.

However, Chewy only cares if I made the right call. No, wait. I think Chewy only cares if Prada loaded enough toilet paper.

Can't Escape Chinese Food
Covered five states in two days, just to visit Washington D.C.: Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia. But that's not the heavy point (translate literally to Mandarin Chinese).


You'd think you're spared from China-like Chinese food in USA (especially if you were to visit states not famous for their Chinese food)? Well, you thought wrong. Just like I did. Guide wanted to bring us to have salty and oily Chinese for dinner and lunch. It's like deja vu. Didn't I just do that last Dec?

Note to self: Next year, visit some place where you cannot be served Chinese food, no matter how hard they try. A good choice would be Swaziland. If I'm served Chinese food there, I'll turn vegetarian, I tell you.

How can it be that I can't escape Chinese food even though I'm millions of miles away from China? Fine, I exaggerate. It's only 7383 miles away, but again, that's not the heavy point.

That's How I Want It To Be
I wore my Christmas hat down Times Square today (Christmas eve). I must have looked ridiculous but it's memorable. That's how I want New York to be. No, not ridiculous, memorable!


It's an unspoken rule that you must spend the holidays with your loved ones. I'm spending Christmas in my dream city with my favourite girl: New York City, Chewy. I know I shouldn't wish for more but I wished someone else is here too. That's how I want Christmas to be.

Merry Merry Merry 2006 Christmas! :)

The Stars Are Blind
The stars say, "You must not overspend right now, no matter how reasonable the prices seem to be." The stars are blind.


(I'm no fan of Paris but it seems just so appropriate, no?)

Haven't the stars heard it's Christmas? Maybe they are deaf instead. It's Christmas!! If you don't spend, make that overspend, during the most commercialised festival of the year, when the hell do you?

No. 2 Yellow Pencils!
Chewy went all crazy yesterday and spent way too much money on clothes, shoes and other stuff at Foothills Mall. I know I do too from time to time (fine, from month to month), but this is Chewy we're talking about.


The nicest thing she got was actually for me. A packet of No. 2 yellow pencils! Now, I can finally strike off another item from my wish list.

Come to think of it, my wish list has remained rather intact. Come on, people! It's Christmas and like they say, it's better to give than receive. So I am posting my any occasion* wish list again to remind the millions of people out there that my birthday's in less than 40 days. (Whoever said you must be a friend to give gifts?)

Qiaojing, you are the only person who doesn't have to read the rest of it. In case anyone is wondering, there is a standing order between Qiaojing, Ying and I. Every year, I buy my own birthday and Christmas presents on their behalf. This way, I get exactly what I want, when I want, where I want. They don't even have to crack their brains or lift a finger, maybe except to press a few digits to transfer the money to me.

This year, I bought their Christmas present (for me) in May. Haha!

My Any Occasion* Wish List

Break the Bank List
1. Burberry Trenchcoat (size 0)
2. A trip to the Big Apple, New York (which I'm giving myself!)
3. Baby penguin
4. Laptop
5. Digicam
6. Diving equipment (I can't go diving without these! Why do you think I've been delaying the diving trip?)
7. Cell phone (Nokia 7710, 7380 or N73)
8. Ferret (perfect companion for Ah Boy)
9. YSL Muse bag (preferably in white)

Break Nothing List (cheapskate, you)
1. Yoga shoes from Nike
2. Adidas Jisho Mary Janes
3. Tier cake server (to go with the English tea)
4. Parasol (to go with the tier cake server)
5. Battery-operated kerosene lamp (there is such a thing)
6. Tickets to Madonna, Christina's concert
7. Pottery lessons
8. No. 2 yellow pencils (which Chewy got for me!)
9. Dior bangle (S/S 2005 collection)
10. Dior Play lip gloss (Christmas 2005 limited edition collection)

When all else fails, just get me Borders book vouchers. It'll go into my annual $230 book-grabbing shopping trip.

Here's a look at the list of What NOT To Get For Me
1. Cosmetics
2. Accessories (unless, of course, they are studded with diamonds)
3. Hair accessories
4. Stuffed toys (enough is enough with the Pooh bears already)
5. Chocolate from Godiva, Royce (incredibly, I am not a fan)
6. Apple anything e.g. Ipod, Nano, Shuffle, Mini (The only apple I like is the Big Apple.)

*Any occasion refers to birthday, Christmas, Chinese New Year (which my lunar birthday falls on), Hari Raya, Deepavali, Vesak Day, et cetera. *wink*

Hmmm... Yes, this is still about the No. 2 yellow pencils. Thanks, Chewy! Love ya!

Chewy's Invisible Luggage
Chewy is arriving tomorrow. She brings with her a luggage bag, a cabin bag and the freakin' chills. The weather turns into this monster with clouds, winds and showers.


Partly cloudy weather in Tucson. I haven't seen so much clouds since I've arrived.

Four nights ago, I microwaved a burger and nearly burned down the whole apartment. No, really.

Eragon Is Out 15th Dec!
Eragon will be out on 15th Dec! This movie is based on a best-selling book, Eragon. Duh. The book is amazing! Then again, which book with dragons and a boy/girl and evil and a desert/mountain isn't? Haha~


Have I mentioned this book was written by a 15-year old and it was his first novel? Still, you'll want to devour the book in one sitting, I tell you. A good read makes anyone's day, I daresay.

Interestingly, the author, Christopher Paolini did not have anything to do with the making of the movie. Maybe he's too busy writing the third instalment to the trilogy.

Well, the male lead isn't exactly what I'd imagine him to be. I expected someone more dashing (he is afterall a a dragon rider and hero) but I think this guy has a face that really epitomised the mixed emotions he should be portraying in the movie. He's all but 19 and this is his first movie, so I'll bet he'll only become cuter by the day. Saphira didn't turn out how I thought she looked like too. Rachel Weisz is the voice talent of Saphira. It'll be interesting to hear a dragon with an English accent.

The female lead is pretty though; but I have an affinity for redheads (so I might just a little bitty biased). She's 31 but she sure doesn't look like it! I guess the beauty of Hollywood is you never ever grow old. No wonder everyone wants to be an actress. I would kill for immorality too. No, really.

This is going to be one hell of a good movie. Can't wait!

Ain't The Same Without Me
Miss Joey Lim and Eugina Koh, I know of your plans to go clubbing this 22nd! And of course, without me. How dare you two! You will not have fun without me, I tell you! HMFF!! It just ain't the same with me~




Monday, 04 December 2006
Hiya!
Hiya! Yes, I'm still alive and kicking. Much to the dismay of some, I know. Tough luck.

Of Flights and Fights
Finally got my flight booked two hours ago. Yes, less than 24 hours before I am supposed to take off. So, it's set in stone. I'm leaving tomorrow. Now, I just need to get my ass away from my game and start packing. Start packing, Wynnii!

Met up for dinner with Qiaojing and Ying last night. Qiaojing (I don't think she realised it) keep asking, "What am I going to do when you are away?" See! I'm sitting right in front of her and she misses me already! I won't be surprised if Qiaojing decides that she missed me too much and flies over to see me. She knows Jessica is now my number-one obsessr since she forgot to return my calls three times in a row and now, she's panicking (at the same time, plotting to get her spot back).

Jessica is now pondering who else she can mambo to every Wednesday night. Miss Fung, you know what? We could buy a web cam each and ta-dah! We can dance together already! Bloody brilliant, no? (Psst, Jessica, Qiaojing is plotting against you now. Don't say I didn't tell you.)

Tinsteltown, here I come!

Start packing already, Miss Wynnii Lu!!

The End
The end of my working life. THE END! Yeah~~

Last mambo was a tad disappointing. Jessica wasnt even there! *sob*

Sore throat won't go away. Now, they must think I'm holding someone else's passport. With my hoarse voice and long hair, yes, I'm a drag in disguise.

1. Voice

3. Friend
4. Respect for an immature grown man
5. Patience (and hence...)
6. Temper
6. Hope
7. Money
8. Trust


These words ring in my head.

Boy, Was I Wrong
Just when I was thinking I couldn't find love in this part of the world (no prizes for guessing which heartless bitch caused this piquantness), an unexpected pleasantly pleasant, surprisingly surprise came along. My dad (affectionately referred to "pa" hereinafter) knows I'm going to the States soon. Then again, who doesn't? Ha~ I've been telling everyone I know that I'll come back with a fake accent and irritate the hell out of them. Just like my fake Chinese accent after my China trip. Keke~ Jessica and Qiaojing said they won't meet me then. You think they can resist doing that? They ARE obsessed with me, for crying out loud. They'll beg me to give them a chance to send me off, all the way to the runway, when the time comes, I tell you.

But, as usual, I digress.

Two nights ago, pa came into my (and Chewy's) room and passed me some notes. I gave him an uninterested look, continuing my nirvana telly-watching state. I thought pa wants me to settle some paperwork for him again. I'm tired, pa. It's been a long day at work. Can I rest just for a night? I just wanna laze in my bed, watch telly, eat tidbits, slack and live life. Is that too much to ask for? Or why don't you ask that good-for-nothing delinquent son of yours to help out? The one whom you're going to leave everything to: the business, the house, the hostel. He's gotta pay his dues somehow, no?

My pa, being a traditional conservative dad, will never tell us he loves us, not in person anyway. He shows his love in his own little ways: leaving the drumsticks for us, buying durians for us, taking us out for family dinners, paying for our holiday trips (not the US trip though, I've been earning my own dole!), paying for our studies and never expecting us to repay the money, working hard daily (yes, daily) to bring home the bacon. My pa never complains about having to work under the scorching sun; he works even when he's having a bad sore throat and fever. I never thought of my pa as the greatest dad in the world but he sure is one of the best around. I dare lay my life on that.

You still remember the notes? When I took a closer look at the notes, I realised they are US dollars. Boy, was I wrong. There is love in this part of the world. Plenty of it, actually. *smile*

Crush
Crush by Mandy Moore
oh oh, yeah yeah yeah, oh oh
You know, everything that I'm afraid of
You do, everything I wish I did
Everybody wants you, everybody loves you
I know, I should tell you how I feel
I wish, everyone would disappear
Every time you call me, i'm too scared to be me
And I'm too shy to say
(Chorus)
Ooh, I got a crush on you
I hope you feel the way that I do
I get a rush
When I'm with you
Ooh, I've got a crush on you
A crush on you
You know, I'm the one that you can talk to
Sometimes, you tell me things that I don't wanna know
I just want to hold you
You say, exactly how you feel about her
I wonder, could you ever think of me that way
(Chorus)
I got a crush on you
I hope you feel the way that I do
I get a rush
When I'm with you
Ooh, I've got a crush on you
A crush on you
Ooh, I wish I could tell somebody
But there's no one to talk to, nobody knows
I've got a crush on you
A crush on you, I got a crush
Hey ey ey I got a crush, I got a crush on you
You say, everything that no one says
But I feel, everything that you're afraid to feel
I will always want you, I will always love you
(Chorus) x2
I got a crush on you
I hope you feel the way that I do
I get a rush
When I'm with you
Ooh, I've got a crush on you
A crush on you
I got a crush, I got a crush on you
I got a crush, I got a crush on you
I got a crush, I got a crush on you
I got a crush, I got a crush on you

------------------------------------------
Crush by Jennifer Paige
Ahh, crush, ahhh
I see ya blowin' me a kiss
It doesn't take a scientist
To understand what's going on baby
If you see something in my eye
Let's not over-analyze
Don't go too deep with it baby
So let it be, what it'll be
Don't make a fuss and get crazy over you and me
Here's what I'll do
I'll play loose
not like we have a date with destiny
It's just (aah) a little crush (crush)
Not like I faint every time we touch
It's just (aah) some little thing (crush)
Not like everything I do, depends on you
Sha-la-la-la, Sha-la-la-la
It's raising my adrenaline
You're banging on a heart of tin
Please don't make too much of it baby
Say the word "forevermore"
That's not what I'm looking for
All I can commit to is "maybe"
So let it be what it'll be
Don't make a fuss and get crazy over you and me
Here's what I'll do
I'll play loose
Not like we have a date with destiny
It's just (aah) a little crush (crush)
Not like I faint every time we touch
It's just (aah) some little thing (crush)
Not like everything I do depends on you
Sha-la-la-la, Sha-la-la-la
Vanilla skies (vanilla skies)
White picket fences in your eyes
A vision of you and me(you and me)
It's just (aah) a little crush (crush)
Not like I faint every time we touch
It's just (aah) some little thing (crush)
Not like everything I do depends on you
Sha-la-la-la
Not like I faint every time we touch
It's just (aah) some little thing
Not like everything I do depends on you
Sha-la-la-la Sha-la-la-la,
ahh crush
Sha-la-la-la, Sha-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la, Sha-la-la-la

I Am Determined (The Sequel's Sequel)
Don't ask me how mambo was last night cos I wasn't there. However, Wynnii doesn't disappoint! Hell, NO, I don't! I was at MOS last night instead. Ha! Would you think I'm going to stay in on a Wednesday night?!

*In fake English accent* Have you lost your mind?

Went down to MOS with Rudy and two underage kids. Yes, two underage kids. Two impressionable underage kids. Two irritating underage kids. Two wayward underage kids.

Among the four of us, we have two freaking alcoholics! When the jug of Long Island is served, we each took a sip. Then alcoholic number one whom we shall christened Rudy immediately asked "What other drinks do you want?" Hellooo? We just got our jug only ten seconds ago? So one round of margaritas for everyone (except get-drunk-on-two-drinks Derek). Then alcoholic number two whom we shall christened Nicholas asked "What other drinks are we ordering?" Hellooo? We just got our margaritas only ten seconds ago? Before I knew it, they ordered two B52 and a graveyard for themselves already. These two are crazy, I tell you.

And never believe Rudy when he says "we'll leave at 1am". 1am my a**. We were there till 2.30am! And we had to do supper. No, they don't care I don't like chicken rice. No, they don't care that they don't have to work or go to school the next day, unlike others. No, they don't care I'm on a diet.

Did I mention that I'm working today? See, this is how determined I am to have a life and not join the ranks of the no-life working people. You know what. It's another clubbing session (drinking session for alcoholics, Rudy and Nicholas, actually) this Friday with the same people. Did I mention that I'm working on Saturday? Yes, this is how determined I am.

A New Place. The Same Thing.
Exactly one month from now, I'm flying off! Flying off to the land of opportunities. The land of consumerism. The land of freedom (or so everyone likes to think). The land of dreams. The land of fake tans. The land of brilliant cosmetic surgery (look at Hollywood!).

I am going there to do what I'm best at. Bum.

I'm going there to sit around in the cold winter and freeze my bum off (no pun intended). I'll let you know if bumming over there is any different from over here. For those who wanna ask me to get stuff, please do so now. Please photoshop your shopping list nicely. List item, price and pictures. Ask Qiaojing how professionally done the one I gave her for her Bangkok trip was. AND pass me US dollars. Do take into account there is sale tax hor. The last thing I need is to create unhappiness over money. AND I'll be shipping your stuff back cos I really don't have enough space in my luggage to spare (unless you wanna buy trinkets, which will lead me to ask.. you have too much money eh?).

I've been working for the past two months to save up for this trip. Can't really say I'm slogging but me working certainly had shocked many. And I'm working at a construction yard, at that. My countdown chart shows I only have 16 days of work left. Yeah~ (Qiaojing knows the best what the countdown chart has. haha~)

A new place doing the same old thing. Hmm.... I sure like the sound of that.

I Feel Old. For The Wrong Reasons.
So I'm in the office, sitting in front of the computer, ignoring the rats that are scrambling around, pretending to be busy with all the paper on my desk, cranking up the stereo with trashy pop, inking my fingers in the fight with al'mighty ink pad, soaking up the rainwater from the leaking roof with newspaper (pathetic, I know).

Hey! I just realised I seem to be pretty good at multi-tasking eh.

So in comes a refuse truck driver. I proceeded with the robotic motions of stamping the delivery order (D.O.) when the uncle said something in Hokkien. I looked at him and went "Huh?" Uncle gave me weird look. As I was signing on the D.O., uncle said something in Hokkien again. Once again, I asked "huh?" Once again, uncle gave me weird look. As I give him a one-over, I realised uncle was actually talking to someone else with a what-you-call blue-tooth mobile handsfree device. Yes, you read me right.

A refuse truck driver with a blue-tooth kit. Uncle is lightyears ahead of me in terms of mobile technology. I'm still using a 3650, for crying out loud.

I feel out-dated. I feel old. And it's for the wrong reasons.

Golden Words

Obsession At Its Peak
Miss Fung has decided to up the ante for her obsession for me. She wants to outdo Qiaojing once and for all. She wanna stay at the top for the longest time ever. You would never guess what she did.


*drumroll*

Miss Jessica Fung wanna "engrave" my name on her wrist!

She has only one stroke of 'W' so far but she's getting there. It's not that easy, you know. Every stroke takes a lot of courage and effort. Her love for me will definitely help her overcome all the pain. Didn't they say "Love conquers all"? They failed to mention, though, that love is crazy. Living example: Miss Fung. (Jess, send a pic of your wrist to me so I can show (off) to the world.)

I was telling her that she should be glad my name comprises only straight strokes. Imagine if my name is Jessica! All the swiggly lines will kill! (Good thing you’re not obsessed with yourself eh.) Miss Fung, therefore, I cannot reciprocate your love for me the way you showed yours.

I could, however, showed you more than ample mercy at your birthday celebration. And I have. You were not even half as un-sober (I shall refrain from using the D word) as you were the last time we partied. See how much I love you.

All in all, it’s the same old fun at MOS with Jessica, Ying, Qiaojing. I daresay, with Jessica and I around, fun is a given.



Thursday, 14 September 2006
Of All Times
Qiaojing and I went to catch Forbidden City: Portrait of An Empress at the Esplanade (pronounced as Es-pla-na-day by the darker race). Show was pretty good. Not my type of musical but I do like the costumes. Could have more change of costumes though.

I must mention this. I saw a guy in bemuda shorts and flip flops in the theatre! FLIP FREAKING FLOPS! FREAKING FLIP FLOPS! FLOP FREAKING FLIPS! Doesn't the Esplanade have a dress code? Gosh! How the hell did he even manage to get in? This guy should be drag to the Padang and be executed. As the Chinese saying goes, "Kill one to warn a hundred". Okie, this sounds a tad harsh but seriously, if you cannot even be bothered to wear some proper attire, then please stay at home and watch the televised version of Forbidden City three months down the road. We are not talking about tuxedoes here, just some proper pants and shoes! And it's just a three months wait!

That wasn't the highlight of the day though. The highlight of the day how we epitomized "fan jian"-ness. Qiaojing mentioned that she didn't feel safe with the lax security bag checks at the Esplanade. The guy merely glanced at the contents of our bags and waved us through.

Ask and thy shall receive, I say.

I have this craving for strawberries and waffles these few days. After the show, we decided we'll go the nearby hotels to satisfy the craving once and for all. Of all times, we must choose to go last night. With the IMF and WB meetings, security is, of course, super duper tight. We had to walk about three thousand two hundred and one miles to get to Pan Pacific (getting lost in the process) only to have our bags radiated and finding out they don't serve the dessert we want. We then walked another three thousand two hundred and one miles (passing one way way way wicked automated raised security road block that prevent vehicles barging through) to get to Mandarin Marina only to have our bags radiated the second time and finding out they don't serve the dessert we want as well!!!

Yes, this has gotta be the epitome of "fan jian"-ness. Six million four thousand and two hundred miles, no waffles, no strawberries, only a whole lot of radiation.

The only blessing, we got a cab within five minutes at Mandarin. If we had queued at the Esplanade, we would definitely still be at the back of the never-ever-ending cab queue.

Qiaojing, do you feel very very very very safe and secure now?



Wednesday, 13 September 2006
I Am Determined (The Sequel)
To ensure I'm still living a very fulfilling (this word is relative) life even though I'm working, I played monopoly last last Friday.

I played monopoly again last Saturday.

The plan is to play again this Friday.


I know, I know. It doesn't seem much of a life either but hey, to each his (or in this case, her) own!Anyway, this Friday's monopoly game plan is thwarted by birthday celebrationS~~ (<--- noticed the bold capital 'S'?) Birthday celebrations super-duper-exceed all monopoly games, of course! We are going to celebrate Ying and Jess' birthdays! Two in a night! How wicked is that? Now, I'm the one putting the party together and you make a smart guess on what we'll be doing and where we'll be going? Clubbing, of course. Duh~ *roll my eyes three hundred million times* Even an Amoeba can get that right too. FYI, an Amoeba is something that has more brain cells than you if you have to look it up. Seriously, whatever did you learn in school? But, I digress. I bet we're in for a super duper good time this Friday. Jessica said, "Eugina and I can get drunk together." Miss Fung, you're going to regret ever saying these golden words for the rest of your life. *manic evil laughter* Miss Fung, I think you should stay over at my place on Fri. You know why and I know why. *manic evil laughter turns sheepish evil laughter* I just realised I didn't announce Ying's birthday (which falls on 4th Sept) to the world. Here goes... Happy Belated Birthday, honey-obsessed Ying!!!

(Don't ask why she's honey obsessed. Then again, you cannot ask doesn't mean I cannot tell. Whaha~

Ying is obsessed with honey cos she can hibernate like a bear after she eats it. Bear likes honey. Bear eats honey. Bear hibernates after eating honey. Same goes for Ying. Now, don't ask why she wanna hibernate.)

I know. I have the weirdest friends.

I'm Not Missing You by Stacie Orrico
Qiaojing and Weihao, both of you lost the bet. He didn't call, so both of you pay up!

I'm Not Missing You by Stacie Orrico

Oh, Oh I’m not missing you Been through just about everything that I could go through When it comes to relationships Don’t know what I was missing or why I ain’t listen When I told myself that was it Now here I go, hurt again Cause of my curiousity Now that it’s over What else could it be, he just had to cheat I made a promise never to settle Why didn’t I keep it? Cause I hated the heartbreak Crying and cheating, the fooling around [chorus] (But) I’m not missing you I’m not going through the motions Waiting and hoping you call me I’m not missing you You might have had me open But I must be going because I got life to do I know I’m usually hanging on I used to hate to see you gone But this time it’s different I don’t even feel the distance I’m not missing I’m not missing you It’s a shame in a way cause I feel that I may not ever find the right one for me Did I leave him, is he right in front of my face oh Will my true love ever be? Why would I go on a search again When I know what the end will be What good is love when it keeps on hurting me? I made a promise never to settle Why didn’t I keep it? Cause I hated the heartbreak Crying and cheating, the fooling around [Chorus x 2] (But) I’m not missing you I’m not going through the motions Waiting and hoping you call me I’m not missing you You might have had me open But I must be going because I got life to do I know I’m usually hanging on I used to hate to see you gone But this time it’s different I don’t even feel the distance I’m not missing I’m not missing you No I can’t be with you Cause I'm scared felt like I was falling when you left me I can’t keep going through life Unaware of what I missed And the person I could be Love's good when it’s right And when it's left in your memory All the times I let you down I guess love will be nice for someone else's life [Chorus] (But) I’m not missing you I’m not going through the motions Waiting and hoping you call me I’m not missing you You might have had me open But I must be going because I got life to do I know I’m usually hanging on I used to hate to see you gone (I used to hate it) Oh different, oh feel the distance I’m not missing I’m not missing you I’m not going through the motions Waiting and hoping you call me (knockin' at my door) You might have had me open But I must be going because (it's the best day of my life) I know I’m usually hanging on I used to hate to see you gone Oh different, feel the distance I’m not missing I’m not missing you I'm not missing you (oh baby) I'm not missing you I'm so over you It ain't even a problem

I Will Survive
Rats should be the only problem I encountered at this god-forsaken place. I would think and so would you. Boy, are we wrong.

Now, I just realised the freaking roof is freaking leaking so the freaking rain is freaking splashing on the freaking parapet wall and it's freaking splashing all over me as well.

Is there no end to this?! New York, are you freaking worth this?

I tell you. If I can survive this place, there's nowhere else in this world that can kill me already.

STOP FREAKING DRIPPING ALREADY, STUPID RAINWATER! STOP BEFORE I FEED YOU TO THE RATS!

Minute of Silence
A minute of silence for Mr Steve Irwin, one of my (and Chewy's) favourite tv personalities.

I still can't quite believe he's gone.

The Blind Guy
A blind man and his guide dog enter a bar and find their way to a bar stool.
After ordering a drink and sitting there for a while, the blind guy yells to the bartender, "Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?"
The bar immediately becomes absolutely quiet. In a husky, deep voice, the woman next to him says, "Before you tell that joke, you should know something. The bartender is blonde, the bouncer is blonde and I'm a 6' tall, 200 lb. blonde with a black belt in karate.
What's more, the woman sitting next to me is blonde and she's a weightlifter. The lady to your right is a blonde, and she's a pro wrestler."
"Think about it seriously, Mister. You still wanna tell that joke?"
The blind guy says, "Nah, not if I'm gonna have to explain it five times."

I Am Determined
I have a life!

I may be working but I'm determined to have a life. I'm determined to not turn into one of the many of millions of sad working people out there. So this week, again, I mambo with my sister and some friends.

Work will never stop me from mambo-ing and having a life!!

The next morning I had to drag myself out of bed. Today, I'm still nursing my flu and cough. It was well worth it, trust me.

Mambo next week, anyone?

Family Greet And Meet
It's 12.39pm now. Lunch time. For the rats, that is. I just saw a teenage rat running about.

I've met the toddler, the father and now, the son. I've met the whole family. Shall we all take a picture together for memories' sake?

Great, just great.

Get Grooving, Miss Fung
After chilling out with Chewy, Qiaojing and Ying at Q-bar last Friday, I, yet again, must announce that chilling out, just like working, is sooo NOT my cup of tea. I just cannot sit and stare at them for three hours! Or it could just be that Q-bar sucks. BIG time. Details of suckiness are boring, so let me just say Q-bar sucks. BIG time.

To make up for the trumatising chilling out session, I have decided to go Mambo-ing with Miss Fung tonight! (Miss Fung is also known as Jessica also known as my number four obsesser. Miss Fung, you really have to work harder to get to the top. Tip: You should try sleeping with the boss. Hmm.. that would be me. Now, this would make it so much easier, no?)

Yes yes yes, I have to work tomorrow but nothing will stand in my way to party with my beloved Miss Fung! (Except for cute little cuddly penguins, of course. Well, the only way they can stand in my way is if they are in the queue outside Zouk, which won't be happening anytime soon, dah-ling. If THAT really happens, Miss Fung, I'm afraid we're just not meant to be. Or it could just be Qiaojing sabotaging our dance date.)

Miss Fung, I have hence proven my love for you. To prove your love for me, you have to

Get into the groove
Girl you've got to prove your love to me, yeh
Get up on your feet and step to beat, girl what will it be?
Yeh, you got to...
Get into the groove
Girl you've got to prove your love to me, yeh
Get up on your feet and step to beat, girl what will it be?

Get grooving, Miss Fung.

Qiaojing (also known as my number one obsesser), please give me a morning call at 7am tomorrow. Thanks a million. I love you too. Everyone wants a piece of me, I tell you.

RATS!
RATS!
I saw a freaking big rat (no pun intended) at my workplace just now.

Notice how I didn't use the word "office"? A sub-container doesn't qualify to be addressed as an office. An office has pretty walls and nice glass windows and cushion roller chairs and 19" LCD monitors and people to eat lunch with and working air-conditioner and digital FM radio tuner and clean toilets and inkpads that doesn't need no re-filling (Stupid inkpad keeps getting all my fingers inked. Aargh!).

But I digress.

Yes, so about that rat. It was climbing up into the false ceiling. Up, yes UP. Whoever heard of that?!? Rats aren't supposed to do that, they are supposed to be crawling on the floors. Actually, I think I like the former better. Ceiling is good. Up and away.

I bet Ah Boy (which my sister imagines to be a tiger cub) will run away in fear if he sees the rat. It's too freaking big to be called a rat. It's a Rat-zilla. To think I thought I could bring Ah Boy here to help. Ah Boy is again deem useless again, yet again.

Now, I wonder how the people do it in Fear Factor? The noise that the rats make is more than enough to send shiver down one's spine already! AND the tail! The long tail!! The long black tail! The long black pointed tail! The long black pointed scaly tail! Don't get me started. Oh wait, I just did already.

Have I non-chalently mentioned that I tendered my resignation already? I know. I know. It seems just I just started work but hey, at least I'm getting my life back. And (this is important) I don't have to reject Miss Fung when she asks me to club. Do you know how painful is it to get rejected by someone you love? Miss Fung, I still love you k.

Jaslin, you don't have to come all the way here to lunch with me already. Haha~ We'll do lunch at someplace where there are actual offices around. Then I can again laugh at the people for not having a life. *evil laugh*

Now, I don't have money to go New York. RATS!



Thursday, 03 August 2006
The Start! The Start!
Qiaojing and Weihao were so sweet. They text me in the morning of my first day of work (2nd Aug) to wish me luck. Secretly, I bet they are secretly happy that I'm working and secretly, they are secretly glad they have more people going down with them. Secretly, I'm secretly giggling cos I'm only working for three months before I fly fly fly away!

Chewy, too, was very sweet. She came over and accompanied me for lunch. Now, you would expect your own sister to be supportive of your work and gives you encouragement, no? My dearest Chewy saw the workplace and the first thing she said to me was, "Wynnii, you should quit now".

Well, the workplace is pretty bad. It's a yard where they manufacture concrete and construction stuff. It's dusty and the toilet!! The Horror! The Horror! I don't even know how to begin with the toilet, but I think it's sufficed to say in my one and a half day of work, I have not used it once. Not even once.

I've been warned that the lizards (read: my greatest nemesis and fear) and rats roam freely in, YES INSIDE, the container. I shall bring Ah Boy to eradicate all of them. At the same time, Ah Boy's bushy tail could help sweep all the dust away. Killing two birds with a stone. Ah Boy's usefulness just upped a notch. Yeah~

You could try to imagine how a container workplace is. Yes, I work in a container. Actually, it's not even a container. It's a sub-container cos I only occupy one room. Now, sub-container sounds like submarine eh. If only this place is as wicked.

FYI, wicked is the new word for cool. Cool is so passe, dah-ling. Just like Spring/Summer 2006, dah-ling. We're approaching Fall, dah-ling. Please keep up with time, dah-ling.

I just had to do that. Once a fashion student, always a fashion student, dah-ling. Haha~

Btw it's Junyao's birthday today. Happy Birthday, 3SG Huang Junyao! Hope you had a great time today.

This Is For New York
1st August 2006

Huh? What's going on? Just yesterday, I went for an interview. Tomorrow, I'm starting work. Huh? What hit me?

Great, just great. Now, I'm going to embark on a three-month no-life life. This is for New York. New York, you better not disappoint me. I'm going to work for you, Big Apple.

*sings* New York, New York~

It's A Wonderful Day Day Day!
A fabulous shopping trip with Chewy today! Simply fabulous, dah-ling!

We were shopping at Raffles Place. Whoever knew there are so many things to buy! I thought no-life people will do no life stuff such as chilling out only, so I expected there to be just cafes and bars and a big grass patch.

Boy Boy, was I wrong. The no-life people are chilling out on the grass patch. Should I start calling them sad-no-life people instead then? (HEY! Which idiot threw the rotten cabbage at me!)

The Spoils The Spoils!!!
Two pairs of lovely pointed striped shoes, one pair of yellow buckle round toe kitten heels pumps, two red plaid leather belts, two metal flower-shaped rings, one chiffon baby blue top, one cotton plaid belt with crochet strawberries and lastly, three pairs of brass earrings. Now, that's what I call "It's in the details".

I saw this really cute red mini armchair. It has a silly smiling frog plushie that seems to be shouting "Buy Me!". Buy the armchair, NOT the frog! Duh~
Yes, it's true. I'm happiest when I spend money. Then again, who isn't?)

Sing along with me! It's a wonderful day day day!

Chewy's 23rd Birthday Blast!
Chewy celebrated her birthday at Costa Sands chalet, Pasir Ris and Zouk over the last two days (18th - 20th July 2006).

A picture says a thousand words.

These pictures must say a few hundred thousands then.





Happy Birthday, Chewy!!

If anyone agrees these pictures speak a few hundred thousand words, then you must really have sucked in Math. One Picture = One Thousand Words. Six Pictures = Six Thousand Words. Where the hell does the few hundred thousand words come from?

Another Horror Movie. Horrible Movie To Be Exact.
I was again forced to watch a horror movie a few days ago. It's Campus Ghost Stories. Now, the title really sends chills down your spine, no? The thing is I didn't get a say in the movie cos Chewy and Junyao made all the decisions on their own. Hmm...

Anyway, I was sitting on the edge of my seat for the first 45 minutes cos I was thinking the movie must be damn scary. I keep praying that I wouldn't scream cos my scream will definitely scare the hell of out everyone else.

After one hour into the show, I was getting restless. What the hell is wrong with the movie? The ghost stories don't happen on campus! DUH! Hellooooo!! If the title is CAMPUS ghost stories, it gotta happen on CAMPUS, no? AND the ghost stories are supposed to be horrifying, no? This one is horrible.

It was a complete waste of my time, money and energy. You two better refund me my money. But the thing is now, I can say I sat through an entire ghost story and I didn't scream. Level up. Yeah~

(Qiaojing, see! You're working and ain't got no time to accompany me, so I have fill my time with these lousy activities. Quit already!)

The 'No Life' Life
Qiaojing finally found a job and she has decided to embark on a new journey of her life. Together with Chewy and I, we went for a farewell dinner. Farewell to her life.

Now, Qiaojing will have a 'no life' life after she starts working. Qiaojing, please do not call me to ask me to go chill out k. I don't do no chilling out. And ever since Qiaojing started work on Tuesday, I feel so weird. Now, I cannot just call her anytime I like and say "Let's go swimming" or "Let's go eat ice cream". Even Chewy's too busy with tuition to keep me company. And now that I cannot go clubbing anymore, the 'no life' life is creeping up on me as well!

Help!

Will someone buy me a baby penguin to keep me company? I want a baby penguin!! I promise I won't feed Ah Boy to the baby penguin.


Sunday, 02 July 2006
Convocation!
Ladies and Gentlemen, I know I keep saying I have graduated. Now, it's offical! Convocation was on 1st July (that's yesterday). What a good way to start the month!


It's really weird that only four people from my class turned up. What's wrong with the rest? Don't they wanna go up and collect their hard-earned cert?

I'll have more pictures soon. I really need to get my a** moving and get those graduation show pics edited and uploaded.

Episode Three of "The Worst Days of My Life”

I'm sitting in front of my computer at this moment (of course I had to be to be typing this, I know) and I'm still in shock now. Let me recount this bad good day.

My good day started with me finally having satays for dinner! Yes, my day starts only after 6pm. I may wake up at 3pm but the hours from 3pm to 6pm are happy hours. No, not the happy hours you are familiar with. My happy hours would mean me sitting in front of the tv and channel surfing. Love it!

Anyway, I've been craving for satays for over a week and now, I'm satisfied. *pats at my tummy* Gylleann must be grinning at this cos she knows how big my tummy is. STOP LAUGHING, GYLLEANN! Or I’ll set Ah Boy the Ferociously Cat after you!

Next, I want chilli crabs! Chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli craaaaaaaabs!

Sing along~ (To your own tune, if you wish. I don’t mind since you’re only going to burst your own eardrums, not mine. Keke~)

Chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli craaaaaaaabs!

Chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli craaaaaaaabs!

I won’t stop till you sing along~~~


Chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli craaaaaaaabs!

Chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli craaaaaaaabs!

Chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli craaaaaaaabs!

Come on!

Chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli craaaaaaaabs!

Now, that’s better.

Chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli craaaaaaaabs!

Chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli chilli craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabs!

Goodie Goodie Goodie! *claps feverishly for ten minutes*

-after ten minutes-
*pretends nothing has happened*

Right, so the good day continues with me catching a movie “R.V.” (starring Robin Williams). As we all know, Robin Williams hasn’t been at the top of his game in recent years. Thus, I wasn’t expecting much from the movie.

Boy, was I wrong.

The show was hilarious. The typical plot of a family who hates each other coming to learn how to love each other at the end. Typical. It was real amusing though. I laughed throughout the whole movie and if you know me well enough, I’m easily amused. But seriously, the movie’s good. Go catch it!

Go check out the trailer (
http://www.sonypictures.com.sg/sites/rv.html)

No, they didn’t pay me to say all these. I wouldn’t mind if they want to though. Sony, my account number is 36-546….

The satays and movie cheered me up a lot. I had the worst two days of my life, which I will not go into details. Just need to know that it involves a guy, a girl and a whole lot of pride. The two days were like freaking episodes one and two of “The Worst Days of My Life”.

The day was good and I finally arrived home. I had to dig my keys out of my bag, slot it into the keyhole, turn the key, push the knob, kick open the door and rushed into my home all within 1.31 second, for there was a dead baby lizard lying in the corridor! The good day is about to turn bad. I could feel it in my bones.

In the living room, I saw Ah Boy sitting in his usual spot, looking as if he doesn’t have a care in the world.

Come to think of it, he really doesn’t! He well-fed (which explains why he’s so fat), well-sheltered (he literally has a roof over his head when he’s in his box), well-travelled (he gets to walk into all the rooms of the house), well-rested (he sleeps 23½ hours a day... helloooo?) and well-educated (he knows mum-mum means snacks and string string means playtime).

Suddenly, Ah Boy got all psyched. When he’s psyched, his tail goes wish-wash wish wash like it’s on prozac. I have seen him like this before and this could only mean one things -- he spotted a lizard!

Next thing I knew, Ah Boy jumped onto a cabinet, messed up the trophies on the cabinet, made a few turns, claw at something and before you can say “Jackie Chan”, the lizard’s in his mouth!

This is, of course, a good thing for one less lizard in the world is one less lizard in the world. Hooray~!

The not-so-good thing is Ah Boy started to make his way towards me. WITH THE FREAKING LIZARD IN HIS MOUTH!!!!!!!

WHAT THE HELL!!!

I SCREAMED AND RAN LIKE THERE’S NO TOMORROW INTO MY ROOM.
I slammed the door shut and locked it; least Ah Boy learned how to open a door since the last time I saw him (which was at 5pm today). (Three hours is the exact length of time a cat needs to learn how to turn the knob. Trust me. Ah Boy told me so. Yes, he did.)

Mind you, this wasn’t an ordinary lizard. It’s a freaking big lizard! Big is actually an understatement.

I have reasons to believe that this lizard measures 359415cm from head to tail (accurate to 0.1mm) and weighs 514953kg (accurate to 0.1grams)!

May I add that my mum and sister were woken by my screams. Keke~

I’m sure you’re puzzled why Ah Boy was walking towards me. Simply because I’m the Queen and Ah Boy wanna make his daily tribute to me. But HELL! I don’t want no lizards, you furless cat. Guards, off with his whiskers! (Since he hasn’t got any more fur to be removed.)

In the end, the lizard got mauled by Ah Boy and died a slow, horrible death.

Is today meet-and-greet lizard day!?!?! What the hell…

Oh NO!!! The baby lizard is dead. The mother lizard is dead too. Now, I bet the father lizard will want to avenge them and he’ll come after me!

I WANNA MOVE OUT OF HERE!! SOME KIND SOUL PLEASE TAKE ME IN!!

I told you it’s a bad good day. It’s freaking episode three of "The Worst Days of My Life”.

Qiaojing: The Number One Obsessor
Qiaojing and I were discussing our meeting plans online just now. She, being obsessed as she is, decided that on top of chatting to me online, she wanna talk to me over the phone as well.

Here's proof of her obsession.






Now, you'd understand why she's called my number one obsessor, no?



Monday, 26 June 2006
Chewy's Virgin Waterfall
At 10am on Saturday, I was awake. You mean this doesn't sound weird to you? You're weirder than me!

Everyone should know by now that Wynnii doesn't get out of bed before 12 noon. AND now that I'm a bummer, my 12pm is changed to 3pm. Whatever does this mean?

Simply, I don't get out of bed before 3pm now.

Cos 12pm is now 9am, 12.01pm is now 9.01am, 12.02pm is now 9.02am, 12.03pm is now 9.03am, 12.04pm is now 9.04am and so forth. You get the idea, no?

Another reason why it's weird is because I was out clubbing on Friday night! I only slept at 4.30am!

I'm hoping this is a one-time thing that wouldn't happen again! I don't like to leave my bed!

Anyway, me, Jessica and Chewy went dbl O on Friday.


We told Chewy it's a full-dressed rehearsal for her upcoming birthday party. Another birthday! Can' wait, can't wait!
It was also Miss Fung's pre-school celebration.
It was also my year-long post-graduation celebration. Whatever do you mean by I cannot have a year-long post-graduation celebration? Nobody else has them, I know. I don't care!

Chewy finally get her chance to try the legendary waterfall. Look at her waiting impatiently for the drink.

Chewy was supposed to go down after the waterfall but she didn't! Maybe she practise with Ah Boy in the bathroom eh...

Jessica and I almost slaughter her cos she was saying "Waterfall has no kick". We bought more drinks in an attempt to shut her up and of course, to get her drunk (So that we can take discriminating pictures of her. Keke~).


One Vodka orange, two Waterfalls, three Bacardi Breezers and two Flaming Lamborghinis later, we were still sober! Complete waste of our money!




However, we (or rather they) couldn't bear to leave the dance floor.


Yes, with Jessica and I around, you wouldn't wanna leave either.

Ah Boy, the Potential Alcoholic
Ah Boy aka Merlin the Cat has this very peculiar habit. He loves to drink in the bathroom. Drink water! Not alcohol, you silly!

I caught him the in act.


I know alcoholics like to hide in the bathrooms to drink but Ah Boy is no alcoholic. Or is he? Hmm....

The Last Mambo With Jessica and Qiaojing. For Now.
Whoever heard of people arriving at clubs before 11.30pm nowadays? Well, Qiaojing, Chewy and I arrived at MOS at 10.10pm last night. We have the perfect reason. We wanted the goodie bags, we admit. Useless goodies in the goodie bags, but we like. Ha~

Miss Jessica Fung arrived at 11pm and guess what? We decided we cannot betray Mambo and thus, the four of us headed down to Zouk instead.


When the smell of Mambo hit us, we get right into the mood.

Sob sob! Jessica's going back to work next week. This means we cannot mambo anymore! Till Sept, that is. Therefore, we made sure we had a blast at Mambo last night (as evident in pic of Jessica and Chewy). We must have irritated a lot of people by taking pics on the dance floor. BUT, we DON'T care!


And we'll make sure we'll have another blast at Dbl O this Friday. Yes, we made plans to club again this week cos it's the LAST week of the holidays already! I'm going to miss mambo-ing with you sooooo much, Miss Fung.

Only Chewy, I and Jessica were left standing at the end of the night. Qiaojing left early. Weak girl, sign up for the drinking camp with Karen.

The last but best Mambo, yet!

Another Birthday, Another Round
Another birthday!! Yeah~ I love birthdays! Birthdays are the best!

You receive greetings, hugs, kisses, flowers, love, smiles. Let's not forget the presents that you wonder whatever the hell your friends were thinking of when they bought the presents. This is why I have a wish list for anyone who is buying me presents. (Please read "My Any Occasion Wish List", dated 15th Jan 2006)

Topping the list is a pair of baby penguins. I prefer fairie penguins cos they're smaller and thus, fit better into my fridge.
Second on the list is a Burberry Trenchcoat. I don't mind either beige or blue. My size is US 0.
Third, we come to an all expense-paid trip to New York City. Yes, all expense-paid. I believe some kind soul will grant me this one day. I know I can save up to go but it'll just be fun. If it's free, it's double the fun!

The list goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on. I know I should stop already, but no can do. Since I mentioned some things I yearned for, I must mention things that I DO NOT wish to get as presents.

Here are some which you should not get me ever again.
1. Cosmetics
2. Accessories
3. Stuffed toys
4. ...

All right all right, I'll stop right here. I heard some yawns already. Okie, back to the other people's birthday part. (yawnzzz... boring...)

I must say this though. Seriously, the wish list makes things so much easier for you and I, no?

Okie, really back to the other people birthday part. (double yawnzzz... double boring... you cannot tell I don't wanna talk about any other birthday except for mine eh...)

So, Charmaine wants to celebrate her birthday in advance and so dinner and drinks are a must.

Now, I have only pictures of us having drinks at Giraffe (opposite Plaza Sing). Why? Dear Gylleann bought her camera but she didn't charge it, so we can't take no pictures. Since it's Charmaine's birthday, you would think she brought her camera as well right? Well, she did. And guess what? She didn't charge her camera too.

So we have two cameras with no usable batteries.
What's wrong with these people?

I think they think their bags think they (the bags) are too light and want them (the girls) to carry more things. (If you tell me you can say this in one breath, you're good. A good liar, that is.)

My sister saved the day when she came over and she has this Sony-Ericsson phone with floodlight. Not flashlight, mind you. It's really floodlight! (Show you next time.)

Happy birthday, Charmaine!

Laugh Out Loud
A lesson on how important and powerful punctuation is.
An English professor wrote the words:
"A woman without her man is nothing" on the chalkboard and asked his students to punctuate it correctly.
All of the males in the class wrote: "A woman, without her man, is nothing."
All the females in the class wrote: "A woman: without her, man is nothing."
I think I'll go with the latter. :)

Soccer Like Never Before (The Sequel)
I just have to put these up.

Read "Soccer Like Never Before" (17th June 06) and you'll understand these clips.

Look at these three overly-excited crazy girls. You think you're cheering for their teams? Hell, no! They are cheering because the other team misses the goal kicks!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEvltgaw1tA


Now, watch them cheer sheepishly another miss. Gosh!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQPbf0JHboA


Then we have Qiaojing shooting the other two so that she'll have discriminating evidence against them for future blackmail use.

My Loves And I
This is dedicated to my love of my life, Miss Jessica Fung Wei Yan (Yes, I just have to mention your full name. hee~).

Miss Fung is in Hong Kong “mai dong xi, chi dong xi” (her own words).

I was having dinner last night when I received a text message.

Miss Fung, you love me. You really love me!

(Miss Fung, I honestly think you should stay in HK permanently cos I think Qiaojing will take your life when you’re back. Or we could keep this a secret from Qiaojing. Shhhhh.....)

So I must mention it here too that Qiaojing (my number one obsess-er --- there’s a list, honest!) went to Bangkok last year and she bought me some belts which I love! I was looking high and low for the belts in Singapore to no avail.

Qiaojing actually went around the shopping malls in Bangkok with a picture of the belts and huang tian bu fu ku xin ren, she found them! She not only bought one for me. She bought three (knowing that I must have backups)!

Hmm… I know I dedicated this to Miss Fung initially and as usual, I digress.

Therefore, this is dedicated to my two loves of my life, Miss Jessica Fung Wei Yan (Yes, I just have to mention your full name again) and Miss Joey Lim Qiaojing (my number one obsess-er).

A Bowling Trip That Came to Naught
Last night, I went to a bowling centre. What do you do there? Bowl, of course. You'd think so, wouldn't you? However, I just sat and watch Rudy, Jeremy and Derek bowl; and watch them try to outdo each other (with underhanded means, no less).

Why?

Cos dear Rudy forgot to bring my bowling ball (he's the unofficial driver and bring-er of bowling balls, which are at his place). He arrived at my void deck asking me if I could bowl with my cracked bowling ball (which was at home).

Rudy! What's wrong with you? You said bowl. I said yes. Then you didn't bring my bowling ball?

"Look on the bright side", Rudy said. "At least you have your bowling shoes with you".

Yes, and what am I supposed to do with them?

Good thing the only thing on my mind was food. I just wanted dinner. We always supper after bowling, so bowling was the motivation for me to get my butt of of the house.

Silly little Derek was upset that his crush didn't call him back as promised. He's only 17. Teenage crush and love. Awwww. How I wish I could turn back time.

Soccer Like Never Before
What happens when you get four crazy girls who don't know much about soccer to watch a soccer match? AND get them to place bets on the match? Qiaojing, Jaslynn, Janet and I went to watch soccer at LiquidKitchen (Bukit Timah) on Friday. Yes, watch soccer. What's wrong with that?

The thing is among the four of us, two subscribe to the World Cup on SCV. What's wrong with us? I know. I'm asking the same question too. So way before the first match (Argentina - Serbia and Montenegro) started, Janet was asking if we wanted to place any bets already. First, we decided we'll bet $10, 2-1 to Argentina. This is $10 shared among four of us.

Just five minutes after the first bet, Jaslynn was saying we should place another bet so that we'll win anyhow. "It makes sense", Jaslynn insisted. Now, this is how people get addicted to gambling.

Finally, we settled for $10, 2-0 and $10,2-1 to Argentina.

In the first half of the game, we lost our bets already. What the hell!?! Hey! Isn't there such thing as beginner's luck? And you know what. Jaslynn and Janet started asking if we should place our bets already for the second match. This is during the first half of the first game!! See, what did I tell you about being addicted?

Since the match is of no more interest to us anymore, we turned our attention to the food and desserts instead.
Jaslynn commented that the cake is very nice. The picture of the cake, that is. I cannot agree more cos I took the pic. Haha~


So then again, they placed bets for the second match (I didn't cos I'm not in the mood after not winning my side bet of $200 on the first match. I need this $200 to fund my new red shoes!).

Jaslynn: "Sure win one this match". When you have a "sure win" match, what do you do? You increase your bets, of course. This time round, it's a $100 bet on Holland (also known as Netherlands). From $10 to $100. It's a d
ownward spiral for these three, I tell you.

So what happens when you have ten ti
mes the money at stake?

This is what happens...

Dissing the referee and opposite team



Bored at the prospect of losing


Make that three crazy girls.

Now, I'm Afraid Of Love
I received a message on friendster today and my my, it's from someone whose nick is 'Love'. How original. Not to mention tacky.

I am sincerely and seriously looking for a boyfriend, as everyone should be well aware of.
Now, I'm afraid of Love. (Every pun intended.)

Accessories Are A Girl's Best Friends
Recently, I chanced upon a very interesting piece of accessory.

It looks like an ordinary bracelet all right. Go on, ask me what's the time now. My bracelet is actually a watch. This must be one of the coolest watches around! I know it's a tad boring to be reading about my gorgeous and fabulous watch, but what else would you have me to write?

The World Cup? Fine, ask and thy shall receive.

On the opening day of the World Cup, I met up with a whole bunch of friends and we went for a nice dinner.
I had two escargo(es).

Then three escargo(es).


Then four escargo(es).


There you have it. Something about the World Cup.

Yet Another First and Yet Another Mambo
I went to watch The Omen yesterday. The Omen is, as everyone is well aware of, a Horror, Suspense/Thriller film.

I know you are thinking "NO WAY! Wynnii wouldn't watch a horror show. She must be nuts!"

Or I must be forced to by a certain someone. Let's not name names, for I'm afraid the certain someone's life might be in peril because Qiaojing, being obsessed as she is, might decide to take revenge on that certain someone for putting me through such a horrifying experience.

Mr Huang Junyao, you better be careful. Opps!

When the show was about to start, he decided he needed to take a leak and left me all alone in the theatre!!! If there had been any horror scenes in the first five minutes, I would have been chased out already!

Why? You asked?
You mean you need to ask?

Okie, if you have to know. It’s simply because I would have screamed so bloody loud that the rest of the audience demand I leave. That’s why.

Anyway, it was a Wednesday yesterday and no Wednesdays are to slip by without mambo-ing. Yes, it’s a rule. For me, at least. Wednesday nights will, must, have to, gotta end with merrymaking at Zouk.

Again, our dear Miss Ding got drunk. This bit is as per usual so no biggie. Two hours into her staggering and slurring, she started frenching (YES! French-kissing!) some guy from god knows where (YES! God knows where!).

Kevin and Jolene, can you two please stop her from engaging in such mortifying acts!

Mambo, Zouk: The good ol’ place where you find all sorts of people for all sorts of fun.

We're Above That, Miss Fung!
Last Friday, I was on my way to meet Miss Fung and a bunch of secondary classmates and when I asked her where was she, her reply was "We're chilling out at Coffee Bean".

I stopped in my path.

I felt faint.

I gasped for air.

I recomposed myself.

I immediately replied, "What CHILLING OUT!? We don't do no chilling out, Miss Fung. Chilling out is for old, working people. Hm.. wait a minute, you are one. Ermm.. whatever is it, we DON'T chill out".

Miss Fung must be too stressed out by the kids in school. She would have never in a million years told me that she's chilling out if she's in the right frame of mind.

We're above that, Miss Fung!
