Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus

Question: What makes your wedding day perfect?

Man: Marrying the love of my life.

Woman: Are you asking about the wedding gown, the evening gown, the tea dress, the veil, the flower arrangement, the venue, the ballroom size, the bridesmaid dresses, the diamond ring, the wedding band, the photoshoot or the bouquet? Wait, did I leave something out?

This is why they say men are from Mars and women are from Venus.

A Delightful Introduction

An introduction to both the geniuses of Julian Schnabel and the elegant Screening Room in the same night makes them that much more memorable. Two and a half hours of Before Night Falls makes one appreciate the stable, albeit quasi-democratic, political scene.

Work it harder, Make it better, Do it faster, Makes us stronger,
More than ever hour after hour work is never over

My Fave

My favourite Spanish line is "no entiendo espanol". With this sentence, I can go anywhere Spanish-speaking and get away with everything Spanish-speaking.

I must start learning how to say the same thing for French, Italian, Japanese, German, Russian, Greek, Portuguese and Dutch. I will be able to travel the world after. Yeah!

You read about people beating cancer everyday. It's in the newspaper today too. How come she didn't?

Stepping Out Of Comfort Zone

For the longest time, I've talked about stepping out of my comfort zone. For the longest time, nothing materialised.

I'm not the sort who would willingly choose to eat in a restaurant alone, go shopping alone or watch a movie alone. God forbid if I don't have a book with me whenever I have to wait for someone in a public area. I remembered a time when I had to resort to reading a map while waiting for a dear tardy friend. That day, I learned that Singapore Art Museum is on Bras Basah Road and Bras Basah Road is a loooong stretch.

Last Saturday, not only did I step out of my comfort zone, I took a leap. I attended a gathering of an online community where there were more than a hundred unfamiliar faces from all over the world. Of course, I had asked Joey and Jac beforehand if they wanted to come along, but both had plans of their own. I was tempted to pull out of the event. I can't imagine going through with it on my own. Also, the gathering is at the wrong side of the island, Changi. It'll take me forever just to get there. Don't even get me started on the journey home. The cab fare would be exorbitant!

At 5pm on Saturday, I still didn't have the exact address of the gathering. One can guess I was trying to plan my little escape. Suddenly, the phone beeped and I got a call from someone whom I only had a brief encounter with. The person had passed me some tips on travelling to Spain not too long ago. When I found out he was heading to the chalet too, I jumped at the chance to hitch a ride.

I arrived at Changi shortly after dark without much expectations. Not before long, I was busy chatting with so many different people from all walks of life. The beer was flowing and the drinking games were hilarious. It was as if I've known these people for ages.

Life is such. A leap of faith can show one new expected horizons. I can say this was the second best thing that has happened to me this year yet. The first is, of course, having the ferris wheel ride of my life on a super windy day in Tibidabo.

2009 has started for me.

It's All About the Experience

I keep reading about how summer vacations are the best experiences with the sun, sand and surf. It's in the papers, in the magazines, in the blogs, in the travel guides... It irks me to no end. Travelling in summer means everything is overpriced and everywhere is overcrowded. It is SO over-rated.

One day, I will write my own travel guide AND I will write about how great it is to travel in winter. Hello! You get to don gorgeous coats and gorgeous boots and gorgeous scarves and gorgeous leggings and gorgeous ear muffs and gorgeous beanies and what, you are complaining? Should I go on to mention the gorgeous ski boots and gorgeous gloves and gorgeous mittens and gorgeous capes... Okay, you get the idea.

On top of everything gorgeous, hotels are deeply discounted, shopping bargains are everywhere and you get to experience flight delays due to snow storms. The latter is quite an experience too, albeit a frustrating one.

Wasn't it an experience you are looking for?

Can We Call A Truce by Sugababes


Chorus
Can we call a truce? We both have our truths
And I just wish this god damn mess...
We could try and play it cool when it's going down
I don't wanna fight

Can we call a truce? We both have our truths
And I just wish this God damn mess...
We could try and play it cool
I don't wanna fight, to lose you

I wrote a list of my demands, but I left it at a friend's
I rehearsed a little speech, but the whole thing got too preechy
So it seems like I'm back on scratch again
I read a magazine last night, all our issues came to light
I memorised it piece by piece, but I guess it's not that easy
Now it seems like I'm back on scratch again

Verse
And it seems like in all the fighting we're losing sight
And it feels like all this time we once were tight
And it seems like we're supposed to be side by side
All I wanna do is set things right

Repeat Chorus

I met you never asking sheer advice, to wise up and to make nice
I always thought she was a bore, but then that's another story
And I feel like I'm back on scratch again
And at this show the other night I met your friend the skinny guy
I swear he tried to make a pass, I guess he never was too classy
And I feel like I'm back on scratch again

Repeat Verse

Repeat Chorus

If we can't reconcile then can we just not fight?
Every second that you're gone I want you by my side
Another minute with you not around, I just might lose my mind
Was I wrong all the while or were you just not right?
We're supposed to be side by side
All I wanna do is set things right

Repeat Chorus

A Day of Merry-Making

Merry-making took us to Sentosa for champagne brunch, Harry's @ Vivocity for margaritas and finally, Marina Barrage for Baileys.

Merry-making almost got us trapped at Marina Barrage. We hitched a ride from a kind soul who saved us a 45-min on foot journey. God bless his soul.
