Spainish Jamon from NTUC

Chewy bought Jamon Iberican for me from Spain! Or at least I think they are from Spain - the ham was in an NTUC plastic bag... Did she think I am that stupid?

Not Lost

Acrobatic acts never looked so easy, yet unachievable.

Three . Two . Four men in straight jacket lookalike. Five compressed wooden blocks. Countless instruments. One voice to rule them all.

Calm... calm... calm...

They are most certainly not lost.

From Noogler to Googler

One month anniversary! No more a Noogler! Now a Googler! :)

Another One Down

I met up with Junyao for lunch today. I haven't seen him since we broke up about two years ago. I think it should be more than two years ago.

He is getting married next month! June 24 to be exact. Fancy that! The guy whom I'd dated and thought would be least likely to get married is getting married, at age before 30! 

On one hand, it was "Another one down". Geez. 

On the other, it was "What is wrong with me? Why do the guys all marry the girls they dated after me? Was I really such a bad gf that I wasn't worthy of them?"

Way to make a girl feel lousy, boys.

The Therapy Continues

The retail therapy continues!

A red jacket and a striped shift dress added to the ever-growing wardrobe pile. :)

I'm going to milk the "My bf broke up with me so I need retail therapy" line for what it's worth. 

And That Makes Two

Today at Pink Parlour where I was getting my nails done, there was a pair of mum and daughter enjoying a girls' day out and getting their nails done too. For a moment, I wished I could do the same too. Maybe in the future with my own.

But I remained doubtful.

Best Therapy

I decided to indulge in some retail therapy and bought two gorgeous dresses from Topshop without even trying them on. Look, I need the therapy (the you-know-who broke up with me three weeks ago) and it's the Great Singapore Sale.

I'll take any excuse I can.

Truly Missed

It's only when you're away do you only know what you truly miss. I miss my bed and my $198 pillow. ;)

In Cohoots

Why is Groupon suddenly sending me deals in Warsaw?

Are the two of you in cohoots? That's just mean.

Update: And Groupon sent two! Aargh! Stop reminding me already!

Of Course

If I say I don't hate you, of course I'm lying.

I was planning to explore South America with you. You knew I had dreams of doing that. Then you went ahead without me. I guess dreams get shattered in reality. That's why reality is about, ain't it?

Make Love, Not War

Do they realised we the users are the one who are most affected and we are the one who have to suffer from the consequences of this war?

Why can't they make love, not war?

Birthday Greetings From Beyond

Happy birthday, Mummy!

Hope you have a happy one, wherever you are. I miss you. If you'd met him, you'd say he loved me very much too. Just like you.

I love you. Always.

Do you like the flowers I brought on Sunday?

Yikes!

A monitor lizard crossed the road in front of me today. A huge lizard! Like a mini komodo dragon. But I didn't scream. Cos I was in the safety of the car. Until it started crawling really fast.

Sometimes It Lasts In Love But Sometimes It Hurts Instead

Someone Like You by Adele

I heard
That you're settled down
That you found a girl
And you're married now


I heard
That your dreams came true
Guess she gave you things
I didn't give to you


Old friend
Why are you so shy
It ain't like you to hold back
Or hide from the light


I hate to turn up out of the blue
Uninvited
But I couldn't stay away
I couldn't fight it
I'd hoped you'd see my face
And that you'd be reminded
That for me
It isn't over


[Chorus]


Never mind I'll find
Someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Too.. Don't forget me
I beg
I remember you say
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead
Sometimes it lasts in love
But sometimes it hurts instead
Yeah
[Chorus]


You'd know
How the time flies
Only yesterday
Was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the suprise
Of our glory days


I hate to turn up out of the blue
Uninvited
But I couldn't stay away
I couldn't fight it
I'd hoped you'd see my face
And that you'd be reminded
That for me
It isn't over
Yeah


[Chorus]


Nothing compares
No worries, or cares
Regrets and mistakes
They're memories made
Who would have known.. How..
Bittersweet
This would taste


[Chorus]

What Champions Are Made Of

We won! We won! We won! We won! *jump jump jump jump in joy joy joy joy* Woooohoooo!

*big smile smile smile smile*

Manchester United showed what they are made of! Perfect game, strategy, concentration, tackles, tactics, concentration, ball passes, team work, sportsmanship, fouls and not forgetting goals! :)

One more point and the trophy's in the bag!

Beauty of Randomness

It has been a long rewarding day with no fixed plans. That's the beauty of randomness.

But before that, it's a sad day in Singapore on many different levels. Today marks PAP again returning to power with 81 out of 87 seats in the Parliament. I had thought Singaporeans have matured and are committed to change. Evidently, we still have a long way to go. I am suddenly feeling dejected by the state of politics our country is in. I want to be somewhere else for five years and come back to vote for change again. We also lost an MP, George Yeo, who had been our beloved Foreign Minister. We have allowed an imbecile MP, Tin Pei Ling, into Parliament as a "yes" person.

But enough of politics already. I ain't got no more interest in it. Maybe Maciek was right - it's a good thing we do not have democracy in Singapore. Since Singaporeans do not even know how to appreciate such a state.

Moving along, given it's Mother's Day today and mum's birthday on Thursday (12th May), I wanted to pay her a visit but didn't have any form of transport. I was casually asking Alvin if he minded the long drive and he readily agreed. Woohoo~

So I hope carnations, joss sticks and joss papers for mum on this day will make her happy, wherever she may be.

Then while enroute to Rider's cafe, I saw an orchid garden near Mandai and decided that we should head to Thomson to look at some flowers and hopefully, I get to reminisce the gorgeous flowers I had seen at Kaukenhof. Sadly, at Far East Flora, I wasn't impressed. But still, I bought a bouquet of yellow tulips and I plan to bring them to the office. I want my workstation to be not only a place for me to be productive, but a place which I enjoy my time at. A happy me = a productive me.

Next up, we head to Ikea on the pretence that we would get a vase for my flowers. I know I have a vase somewhere in the house, I just need to spend some time, okay, a lot of time looking for it. As it turned out, we didn't even have the hotdogs we wanted but had a proper meal, as proper as Ikea food is, instead. And as with every Ikea visit, a bunch of junk followed me home. Like I always say about Ikea - a perfect home for a dysfunctional family.

So after filling our tummy, it was a drive to AMK for some Koi bubble tea. A 18 min car ride later, and I find myself home.

Now, I'm heading out to watch Man U beat Chelsea on home ground. What do I have to do to make the day turn for the better?

Yes, Like Magic

A painting is more then the sum of it's parts. A cow by itself is just a cow. A meadow by itself is just grass, flowers. And the sun picking through the trees, is just a beam of light. But you put them all together and it can be magic.

Some Of Us

Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss; but every once in a while, you find someone who's iridescent, and once you do, nothing will ever compare. :)

Beautiful line from Flipped

Workplace Efficiency

The monitor is so big at my workplace that I have to do either one of these to read everything.

1. Move my head from left to right
2. Move my seat away from the desk 

Whatever happened to workplace efficiency?

I Want, He Wants

Why is it that the guy I wanted never wanted me at the same time I wanted him?
