But She Lived

Two years ago this day, my mum was taken away from my family. She was 50 years old. Everyone said she was too young and taken too soon. But she lived. She travelled, she saw, she smiled, she lived. If only she could see how I'm following in her footsteps to explore the world.

Rest in peace, Mummy. I'm coming home soon to see you.

We Showed No Mercy

27 minutes into the United vs Blackburn game and it's 3-0 already! Wooohoo! Eat that, Chelsea!

Exotic

African safari is exotic.

Italian handmade leather bags are exotic.

What the hell do you mean by I'm exotic? I'm not something. I'm a person.

This is why I love Berlin even when it's a freezing 6 degrees C.

It's A Good Day

I came online and found both my dears online. So I got to talk to both of them and I can't stop smiling to myself.

Milosz got to talk to the girl from Amsterdam online too.

It's a happy day for everyone!

Rain Rain Go Away

Rain rain go away
Come again another day

Never show your face again

If it would just bloody stop raining in Berlin!

Missing My Missing Radiator

He wasn't around to hug me to sleep and be my radiator for the night. I woke up in the middle of the night, shaking all over and having to pull two blankets over me. Then I woke up in the morning with a running nose. :(

I miss my radiator!

The Last Leg

Last leg of travel before returning home.

Cold Berlin - cold Amsterdam - cold Rotterdam - cold Paris - warm Dubai - SUNNY Singapore! Woohoo!

What A Waste

Stayed in bed the whole day, not with a lover but with a running nose. What a waste of good sheets! ;)

Which Half

A smart man believes only half of what he hears, a wise man knows which half.

All The Good Things

I dreamt of mummy last night. And food back home in SG. We were out travelling and eating steamboat buffet. All the things I miss dearly.

Trust Me


I had some thread fiber in my left eye. Maciek held open my eyelid and said, "Trust me".

And he proceeded to lick my eye.

If that is not trust, I don't know what is.

It Takes Getting Used To

You can tell that he's not used to having a girl around the apartment all the time. You just get this vibe from him.

It's funny. In a good way.

Simple Does It All

This is not a conversation.

This is a narration.

I write, you read.

Simple.

Stars Be Gone!

What the hell is this star rating thingy doing under every post in the new template? Aargh!

Maybe I should have paid more attention in programming class so I can freaking remove them in the html code.

I watched "The Social Network" today at the cinema. If I had paid more attention in programming class, I could freaking be a billionaire by now. Or well, at least remove the damn star rating thingy.

I wonder if I'm a hippie at heart. Deep down at heart. I have huge disdain for unfairness.

What Is Love?

Love is when he allows you to colour his Calvin & Hobbes comic books - some of his favourite.

And he even offers colour pencils.

Smoking Is Not Allowed

Overheard at Birmingham New Street station today, "Please note that this is a non-smoking train station and smoking is not allowed on trains and platforms."

I turned around to Maciek and asked, "What if the person is smoking hot?"

He didn't laugh. He must not have comprehended my attempt at British wit.

Three Happy Faces & A Dozen Sulky Ones

A 12-hour return flight delay from Dominican Republic to Birmingham meant a free resort room, more time in the pool, getting fed quite nicely and more drinks. Wooohooo! Seriously, dare anyone complain about the free drinks?

Igor, Maciek and I were jumping for joy while the rest, who have had been staying in resorts, were pulling long faces.

On the last day of our Dominican Republic adventure, we finally stayed in a resort, and for free!

Of Tea & Coke

We have adopted the corner petrol kiosk as our default meal location because that's where Maciek can get his black tea fix. I have no issues with the kiosk because they serve up a real greasy meal of dodgy chicken meat burger, but Maciek is quite horrified by the dripping oil. That's how much he loves his tea though.

If he could live on a tea farm, I think he would. It's the same as if I could live on a Coke farm, I would.

Houston, we have a problem.

Democracy Is Over-rated

While watching the results of USA elections in our Love Motel* in Dominican Republic...

Me: That guy's cute! I'd voted for him too.
Maciek: You are voting for him only because of his looks?
Me: Absolutely!
Maciek: It's a good thing there is no democracy in Singapore.

*No kidding, the name of the hotel is called Love Motel.

I had both sweet dreams and a nightmare last night. I dreamt of McDonald's. I dreamt I was swearing off McDonald's.

That's one hell of a sweet nightmare, I tell you.
