He Really Likes Me

He said, "I know how we can meet each other".

I asked, "What do you mean?"

He replied, "I'll go to Rome next weekend to meet you there".

I think this guy really likes me. :)

Lousy Date Night

I watched Date Night last night. Such a pity that two great comedians put up such a lousy show. The storyline was too far fetched. The comic timing was bad. The cinematography was not well thought. Shoots which should have been panned are upclose and vice versa. Tina Fey still has lipstick on at the end of the night! I think the director is largely to blame.

Such such such a pity. The movie had so much potential.

Quite The Start To The Day

It was quite a morning, I tell you.

This morning, I woke up at an ungodly hour of 5am and was out of the house before 6am. I really hate waking up any time before 11.59am in the morning.11.59am is still technically morning!

The reason behind sleep monster's (that's me) sleep disruption is me having to go to Piraeus Ferry Terminal to catch my ferry to Ios.

Yes, I'm finally doing what I came to Europe for - the Greek island-hopping honeymoon without the elusive husband.

But before I go on, I have to relate what a morning it was.

So I got out of the house at 5.55am in the pouring rain, waited impatiently at the bus stop and finally, the bus arrived at 6.10am. Given I had to transfer 2 metro trains, I had hoped the train will arrive as soon as I stepped foot on the platform but it was an eight minute wait for the train and at 6.35am, I boarded the first train. Then it was just one metro stop before I alighted to transfer to another train. At 6.42am, the train arrived and I was getting quite confident of making the ferry since the train ride is going to take me 20min. And you know how Murphy's work - the train decided it would be another 5min before it takes off. By now, I was getting worried. I know the gate of my ferry is at least 10min away from the metro station.

At times like these, you can only do one thing - you pray the rain gets heavier and the sea is choppy and thus, the ferry will get delayed. Yes, the only one thing you can pray for.

When I arrived at Piraeus metro at 7.15am, it was a mad rush to the gate in the now-even-heavier rain. The gate turned out to be further than it really was and I can tell you I've never ran so hard in the rain before. At 7.25am, I finally stepped onto the ferry.

The time for my ferry departure? 7.25am.

I told you it was quite a morning, didn't I?

Raw Nerves

I hate that whenever you write, you always hit some raw nerves with your subtle underlying sacarstic remarks. I shouldn't let you bother me like that, really.

Amazing Race

Standing on Charles Bridge and looking at the statues, I remembered the amazing race was here!

A Day To Give Thanks

I give thanks today to Maciek who gave me some polish currency when I arrived, the man who pointed me to the right direction of the bus stop, the guy on the bus who gave me change for the bus ride, the girl who helped me ask for directions on where to alight, the couple who told me where to alight, another girl who asked for directions of central train station for me, the guy who told me where the central station is, the girl who told me the code for my super cheap ticket to Krakow, the guy who carried my hand luggage and ran to the right train platform with it (with 2 minutes to spare before the train took off), Chewy who texted me Marcin's address, Weihao who texted me Marcin's phone number, Marcin for offering his spare apartment for my stay in Krakow.

Today, I have a lot of things to be thankful for. :)

Truely Bloody

True blood is getting more and more grotesque, bloody and twisted. Just the way I like it. ;)

Travelling Is Hard Work

Wii: But I have no time for everything. I've been so busy!

Milosz: You're travelling! Why are you busy?

Wii: You have no idea. So many things to do even though I'm supposed to be relaxing.

I Call It Foresight

Last night, I wore my heels and party dress onboard the bus from Copenhagen to Berlin for the seven-hour bus and ferry ride.Yes, I was carrying my backpack as well whilst in heels.

 The bus was scheduled to arrived in Berlin at 11.30pm on Friday and "good luck" has it that the bus missed the ferry from Denmark to Germany and it was a two-hour wait for the next ferry. I didn't step foot in Berlin till 2am. This meant I had to drop my bags off and head straight to the club. No time to be wasted!

So yeah, some would call me wearing my heels and party dress onboard the bus crazy, I call it having the foresight. ;)

September 11, 2010

Everyone remembers what he or she was doing on this day nine years ago.

I most certainly do.

New York city was my dream city. I longed to visit The Big Apple for as long as I can remember. I never wanted to visit Tokyo or London or Paris or anywhere else before I stepped foot into NYC. No other city had interest me or lure me to its charms in such irresistible ways.

In this alluring city stood two impressive blocks which overlooked the Hudson River.

The twin towers were the symbol of America's wealth, power and what dreams are made of. The land of opportunity awaits anyone who dared to dream and dared to dream big. As the song Empire State of the Mind suggested "These streets will make you feel brand new. Big lights will inspire you".

On this fateful day, I was watching a NBA game on the telly with E. It was the wee hours of the morning. The runner on the bottom on the screen wrote "Plane crashed into Twin Tower". My first reaction was that it must be a hoax. Nothing of such a scale can be true. No, it's not even remotely possible.

The hoax turned out the be the real deal.

My dream city has been devastated. Amid the destruction, the situation quickly became a matter of skin colours which spiralled out of control.

How can such things have happened?! Many asked the same questions. Many received no reply.
I cried uncontrollably as I stayed glued to the news channel. Finally, exhaustion from grieve took over, I closed my eyes and drifted off the dreamland. I woke up with a jolt, thinking I had the worst nightmare.

Turned out, it was the worst nightmare.

P/S: Five years later, I finally found myself on a plane to NYC. It was an unsettling flight. I couldn't have had more butterflies in my stomach and I felt like I was eating flowers. The week spent in NYC was one of the best time I had in my life. Tourist is as tourist does - I stood eight hours in the freezing cold standing in Times Square while counting down to 2007.

Carp Diem, New York City!

Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Beholder

"You're a beautiful lady," I was previously told.

Hey hey hey, it doesn't mean I get my way everytime. The train left without me today.

It Becomes Dearer

The places I've visitied get dearer to me.

If you think Singapore is expensive, that's because you haven't been to Paris.
If you think Paris is expensive, that's because you haven't been to London.
If you think London is expensive, that's because you haven't been to Stockholm.
If you think Stockholm is expensive, that's because you haven't been to Tokyo.
If you think Tokyo is expensive, that's because you haven't been to Copenhagen.

I miss Singapore dearly!

Thank God, No

While walking around Copenhagen to find a city bike station, I asked a guy if he could point me in the right direction.

Guy: I'm not sure. You don't have an Iphone to check?
Wii: No, I don't.

And Wii was thinking, "Thank God, no."

It's Not That

It's not that I have not written anything. I am just lazy to edit and post. Backtrack to 23 June 2010. Oops.

All The Times I've Cried by Sharleen Spiteri

You don't come around no more like you used to do
Oh god I miss your company
Your innocence you know just like
Yeah like it used to be
And how I need you here with me

You just kept on asking why
Never wanting to really try

CHORUS
Cause all the times I've cried
All this pain I've tried to hide
What am I supposed to dream
When nothings ever what it seems

The pain it drifts from day to day
And it makes think
That how I wish it would subside
To smile again all the fears be gone
Find my self respect
There's nothing done with that effect

You just kept on asking why
Never wanting to really try

Repeat CHORUS

Oh...
You never were the one
Oh...
You never were the one

Repeat CHORUS

The Weather Fight Begins

Stockholm is warmer than London. Imagine that!

I walk around with my dresses and no leggings!
