I saw this on a junior's fb status:

Don't worry if you're single. God is looking at you right now, saying,
"I'm saving this one for someone special."

o wow. thanks.
i sure hope so!
aren't i a positive thinker.
o well. Its better to live happy!

cuteness overload

i can't decide which one i like better or find cuter...
but then again i think without doubt the little boy wins hands down!
with a face so precious who would not think so?

i found this while looking through a fansite of snoopy/peanuts collector's collections...you should really look at the amount of peanuts item this people have. The fb page is HERE.

the closest i have to a worthy snoopy collection is the years of snoopy mugs with purchases of darlie....heh heh.

my Gmarket arrivals.

Opps! Sorry a long overdue post...i did promise to show my gmarkets buy when i get them...so here goes...yes, they did manage to reach me after a big roundabout....
sometimes a deed of good intention will turn into awry because of the good intention...the shop offered registered mailing if you buy 3 items and above...i bought 3 items but i chose the normal mail without the registered mail though i was entitled for it because i was sure there wouldn't be anyone home to receive it that week.
but i guess they do insist on giving the me my entitled treatment despite my wanting otherwise...
i had to sought help from jy and manage to locate where in the world my package was and got them to do a resend....thanks jy!:D
nono. snowy is not part of the parcel, he is just there to beautify the picture and show how big the parcel is...:)
o goody! a handwritten note.
though i'm sure its pretty generic for all customers but hey, at least we can see the effort!:D
my bunny shirt!:)
i wore this once already when out with sis, after washing the colours of the bunny ran abit :(
they are now grey. issshk. cheap stuff. can't blame anyone...
this is the closeup....
err..pardon the model wanna be hand pose. i didn't know where to put my hand...hahaha...:P
though i tried it out like this on first wear when i first got it, i wore it with jeans and without the belt cause i don't like wearing waist belt...hahaa..:P
this was the next piece which i really liked the pattern but was kinda disappointed because the sleeves are nothing really like what i expected them to be...
they are the normal tshirt sleeves...i initially thought them to be wide sleeves which covered down like the kind of big butterfly sleeves...
see the colourful funfair scene going on there?:)
really disliked the sleeves so tried to wear it with an outerwear...hmmx..not really working though..
and when all else fails. pose with a cute plush animal.
*plus point!*
apart from getting the clothes i got these 'anti radiation' stickers....
didn't get them for the 'anti radiation' factors much though...got them because they were so cute!
gave some away...and for mom and dad (because i partly believe though not really maybe in 0.001 chance the anti radiation might work...lol)
this is on my handphone!:D
this is on my mp3!
the other sticker i had on my trusty one was black already so i thought this was a good one to change to...


Yeap, those are my online gmarket buys...
remember to be very careful when you buy things online, check up on the seller first, read up on the reviews given by other buyers. If they look un-trustworthy do NOT buy from them no matter how cheap they are and trust your gut feeling.
most of the time, its right....
gmarket has a complicated pricing system (at least i think so, thanks to jy who figured it out for me) so check how much you spend before you pay, don't get a shock when your bill arrives.


Mayday 3DNA Trailer clip

Omgbbq. i'm so excited!:D
I can't wait for the release of the movie, i heard from the Malaysian Mayday Fan site it'll be released in September for Malaysia screens...what about Singapore?! I haven't find the news for that yet, but i'm sure they'll bring it in. Somebody better....haaha..
if not i would go across the causeway if i must just to catch my beloved mayday in movie.

kyaa. <3
*i sound like a total fangirl at the moment, pardon me. i can't help it, i'm suffering from lack of mayday syndrom* lols

The trailer really doesn't show much...
but with screens like these, its going to be awesomeeeee

i love the feel of the shots.
So i'm siding towards the thought that I'm going to enjoy the cinematography for this movie!
can't wait.
mayday jia you!
mayday ftw!

black nails and iron on fingers

now i know why i can never be a hand model...to make sure the photo turn out decent i needed the help of muddy to come into the pic to let my chubby fingers look cuter
after i done everything i realised i did it the other way round i wanted the lighter tone on my fingers and darker one on my toes...o well.
it went well though:)

o o i forgot to say, i iron my own fingers the other day while ironing the clothes.
but luckily my receptors to pain are still working very well, i pull it out fast and ran it under cold water and went to put some 'miracle' cream (pardon, i forgot the name:P) bought from China previously known to be very good for burns...indeed it was awesome!
if it weren't for it i think i would have two boils on my middle and ring finger...and maybe tiny finger too...

but now theres just a little black scar on the ring finger which was the worst hit the other day.
the rest are all alright.
woohoo. magic cream! i previously let ling use it for her burn too she also say it was good.

ahh. thank goodness for it.
i will be more careful next time:)

五月天-Audi A1 終極之約

This advert done for audi was done sometime back, i think it was done last year but i never get to share it with you guys until now because the youtube embedding link wasn't up yet.

I really like the cinematography they done for the ad, very posh and polished, almost like a mini movie of sorts.
Check out the behind the scenes, even that was done to utmost standards.

Mayday has done a few more ads recently but i thought this one is really worth sharing because it's very tastefully filmed not saying the others are badly done, but this one is just different and well shot!:)

i miss mayday!!
can't wait for their movie 3DNA and their new album (which is rumored, but i think kinda hard to come anytime soon because they are probably still busy with the movie and then having to do promotions for it when their done..)
but whatever it is i hope i get to see mayday soon!

though i've heard this joke of ashin a thousand and one times i still think its pretty funny..

莎∶阿信有厌食症,他看到食物就说∶我讨厌你!!" 然后就把食物吃了.

earth and art. we're unseparateable

art ftw.

my favourite msn wink.

When i do happen to chat online usually i always happen to catch jy online, this is my favourite wink which i will always use.
meowmeow wink!
sometimes i just skip saying hello altogether and just start off with a wink. I get sad when sometimes people are away and i can't use the wink to start the conversation...lol..
yesh. i'm weird and i know it.

this animated cat makes me smile and it comes with sound effects and all....

no. i'm not a mountain tortoise, i know winks existed since way back but i'm just sharing...i like this one!
So you know what to do when you chat with me online!

a day with the family @ changi beach

I went cycling after X numbers of years at Changi Beach last Sunday!:D Its really been a long long time since i last cycled, lasts see...maybe since after primary school...? It has been so long that i thought i had already forgotten how to cycle, i spent a good 5 mins figuring out how to pedal (get two feet on the pedals and move) without falling.....i was so sure i had forgotten the skill at first but my mom said, its just like swimming, once you learnt you will never forget....
it's true! you won't forget it....BUT your skills will turn rusty and your courage will diminish and take some time to build up...by the end of the day i was feeling like a semi pro! muahahaaha. i'm a natural. not And after talking so much, i realise, there wasn't one picture of me cycling at all!!! ah. crap. hahahaa...o well. it was a really enjoyable day:D
we got there in the late afternoon, near evening time...
it wasn't planned, bro came back for the weekend and after a very hearty late breakfast/lunch dad drove to Changi Beach...
The weather was good...nice blue skies:)
Love the resort feel.
We didn't hit straight to the bikes, we went drinking.
yea, in midday, learn from the ang mos.
and we had a drink.
and another...and another....(notice these are not the same photo...)
and then we had 10.
it was part of the package lah;D
the cans are really cute, its much smaller than the usual beer can, its about half or a little lesser and half of a normal can.
yesh. taken with bro's iphone.
the ones i took aren't so fancy. ahh. damn. i wan an iphoneeeeee!!!!
anyway, i wasn't drinking ribena, bro got me to drink cranberry vodka.
drinking in midday.
so holiday-y.
here's mom and dad.
love the feel of the pic.
i wann an iphone! hahaa
mom play cheat she drink beer also...root beer.
ok lah in the end we both also help in finishing asahi.
and if your wondering, no, i did not bring home any cans as collectible, so typical of me to bring cute things home to stash as collections but no i didn't
from the place we sat you can see planes flying just above you.
changi airport is one very busy busy airport i tell you!
planes going zoom zoom zoom.
if you like to catch planes in action this is a good place to be at alternatively.
resort feel yo.
i took this while i was 'driving' at this point i was more familiar with the handling of the bike.
not riding like some lonesome wobbly drunkard as i first started out.
i swear if i didn't look that awake or if you stake me out from the back you would believe i was drunk from the way i swerved left and right.
Here's mom and bro.
We only rented two bikes so we played them alternately...
they were all like fish to water....
i was the only goondo who had trouble at first butbut
i made it after awhile. *proud*
dad the natural kampong boy.
hahahahaha. it does look like, doesn't it?
i took some photos of dad and i at the far end of the beach route where the sea view was awesome, but haven't been able to get the photos out of there yet (partly cause i'm forgetful and keep forgetting to get them)

lastly a photo of yours truly posing as what she can do best being silly.
this is my current dp.
so if your looking for me on FB, this would be the display pic to look out for!

Have some good family fun under the sun this weekend!
kiteflying, cycling, picnic....;)

on a separate note, i'm not appreciating the heat tonight i'm literally melting...



need a second bath before bed.
too sweaty.

the bond between man and dog.


this is really one of those aww~ post.
a feel good post no matter when you read it, the world needs more happy post like this.
Not the fire. but the heartwarming moment

and yes....i was feeling bored. Skeleanimals!

not to mention a little narcissistic. hey, but everyone post pictures of themselves daily...i just do this once in awhile...not that bad right?:PP

this set was taken sometime back when i excitedly open my skeleanimals little plush:)

Have you heard of them yet?
I was quite captured by the eerie cuteness they exude.
i'm just weird like that. :p
But too bad we can only get it through cheers and fairprice express and you must spend (i forgot) a certain amount of dollars to get a stamp and after a certain amount of stamps then only can you exchange for this plush.

i hate it when they do that.
but o gosh, i'm a sucker for it....hahaa...
no more lah...too ma fan to purposely collect the stamps, will just go by it naturally...
i'm sure i will nag my mom to do more grocery shopping at the fairprice express to get those stamps... opps.

the local skelanimals license rights go to cheers and their tagline is
Dead Animals Need Love too...
Quite cute. :)
But the video you see above is from the states Target, i didn't know they have been around are quite big until i went to do a check.

If you want to check out the the local site
they are so cute!
I wantt. anyone wanna teman me? Collect them for me....?
*puppy eyes*
If you are collecting them (because they come in sealed packs you can't choose which plush you get. damn those business gimmicks!) you can go online to trade with other people for the plush you want. :)

I'll leave the link HERE*. Its the local Cheers link and you can get wallpaper like the one above.


all kids are gifted.

everyone has their own talents and is gifted in their own right.
nobody should have the right to tell a child they do not own one. nobody.

i'm sure in this world every child is blessed with something different.
its just a matter of finding out what that is and bringing out the full potential of it :)

for me.
i'm still wondering what the good almighty people above bestowed upon me.
sometimes they say people see it clearer than the wearer themselves.
i'm still pretty much blinded i need some good reading glasses to see them well!

so have i opened my package already?
i'm not too sure, i'm still looking.

what do you all think?

you are beautiful

i think this is kinda great.
this days girls pay too much attention on the appearance of how they are, its not a bad thing unless it turns into a kind of obsession.
I know of friend's friend who end up in the hospital because they don't eat properly or worst don't eat at all and exercise too much.

if size zero people lived in the 1900's in the chinese era, people would probably think they come from some poor family...men would want their women to look meaty and voluptuous which meant then that the family was rich enough to feed the wife well...
imagine the horror if those people came through a time machine to their future and realise things turned the other way round...

its just about balance.
i hate exercising, unless it contains fun like badminton, chasing after a ball and stuff...
i don't go running on threadmill much cause its so boringggg. so i walk alot more, it i can walk i won't take the bus or mrt for those short distances....compensate i guess...hahaa...

and diets? i wish i could.
but i would never last a day, bring me to some bakery or cake shop or something i like and say byebye to determination...lol...

damn i wish i had those kind of weighing machines like the one above.
it would make me a whole lot happier.

till then i shall take my yummy nom noms and just walk more.


don't purposely go chase size 0, love yourself more.
health is a blessing.
treasure it.

you say Stay.

O Yesh! I found this song that i really like but never really knew the title until i heard it playing on some korean movie on tv and stayed till the credit roll just so i could get the tittle of this song...a good song must be shared:)

This song is pretty old...all the way back to 1994, i can't believe that i actually catergorise something from the 1990's as being 'old' gosh. my kids would probably label the music i listen to in the future as 'oldies and classics'....then what would become of the oldies and classics that we label as so now? As ashin once asked, how long does it take for a song to be known as an old song...?多少時間,才能讓一首新歌變老歌?

Have a listen i think it's really pretty good. :)

Stay (I missed you)
by Lisa Loeb

Lyrics for Stay
You say, I only hear what I want to
You say, I talk so all the time, so

And I thought what I felt was simple
And I thought that I don't belong
And now that I am leavin'
Now I know that I did somethin' wrong 'cause I missed you
Yeah... I missed you

And you say, I only hear what I want to
I don't listen hard
Don't pay attention to the distance that you're runnin'
To anyone, anywhere, I
Don't understand if you really care
I'm only hearing negative
No, no, no (bad)

So I, I turn the radio on, I turn the radio up
And this woman was singin' my song
Lover's in love and the other's run away
Lover is crying 'cause the other won't stay
Some of us hover while we're waiting for the other who was
Dyin' since the day they were born, well
Well, this is not that, think that I'm throwin'
But I'm thrown

And I thought I'd live forever
But now I'm not so sure
You try to tell me that I'm clever
That won't take me anyhow, or anywhere
With you

You said that I was naive, and (naive...)
I thought that I was strong, oh
I thought, 'hey, I can leave, I can leave', oh (leave...)
But now I know that I was wrong, 'cause I missed you
Yeah... I miss you

You said, "You caught me 'cause you want me"
And one day you let me go
You try to keep away a keeper
Or keep me 'cause you know you're just so
Scared to lose

And you say, "stay"

You say, I only hear what I want to.

Read up on the singer here* i have not heard much of this singer regretfully, but she started out as an indie singer and this was the song which propelled her to where she needed to be. Thankfully, this is such a song not to be missed. :)Link

A meetup with Sis!:)

Finally got to meet up with Ting after her fyp, *yay!* have been wanting to have a meetup for a long long time but because she had been so busy fighting battles in the lab i had to wait till she won the battle...:) battle all won..just one last poster day to go for sis..Jia you jia you!:DD
Here is my lovely sis who i can finally meet because her crazy hectic days are less crazy and hectic now:) Cheerrrr!:) We were thinking about a bunch of stuff we could do...ice skating? Baking? We decided on shopping at Bugis, she hadn't been there in awhile...and i haven't really shopped in awhile too. :) (but i didn't go crazy on goods, though i wanted to...the last mini paycheck for the little project havent come in yet) but anyway we decided

ice skating - we'll wait for the buggers and do it together, the more the merrier !
lets all fall on our bums tgt! ok. i'll bet it'll be just me again only...hahah...

baking - we'll do it when the oven gets fixed...oror sis! we can do those dunnid to bake de!
i haven't tried any of those recipes yet! wanna learn!

and so we decided to go shopping! weeeee! i haven't been really shopping shopping in a long long time...*online shopping doesn't count:P hehheh.

We went to Bugis! Where the affordable goods are!
still kinda poor so yea...:P
Honestly i wanted to buy so many new things because i have been wanting a wardrobe change and all..but on the other hand i know i have to be realistic because money doesn't fall from the sky! hahaa...i could have though...and would be very very broke, so i did the next sensible thing...just to get the stuff i need :)
i need new wardrobe of clothes, more slanting towards the feminine side. slowly does it. i need new shoes. new bag. nooo. i don't need. hahaa. want and need is very different.
ok. i needed this, a pair of black formal looking pants.
Actually they weren't really cheap, but considering the use of it, i think its quite alright.
It was 33 but i got it at 30 because it was a last piece.
and while i was wearing the button came off *its a ploy i tell you! to make you feel fat!!!evil* hahaha...nah. its just those factory made lousy sewn method that's why. It was a little ill fitting on the left calf...it seemed smaller on the left side...when i told the auntie the auntie went "there should be nothing wrong with my goods..."

and so i wondered out loud: "i don't think there's anything wrong with my leg either...."

and as i was changing out i was more or less considering on getting it already.
and i kept the button in the pocket thinking after i get it i'll go home to sew it on my own...

but wow, the auntie gave me discount and asked her worker to help sew back the button on as it was the last piece...i'm such a lousy price haggler...if mom were there i think she would be able to get a price around 26-28....hahahaha...
i need to learn more auntie price slashing skills...

so yea. that's the story of the pants!

o ya o ya!
Ting bought a few dresses and shoes that day, they all look so good!
What do you expect? Anything will look good on a good looking person.
i need some of those too!hahaha...

anyway, at the first dress store the glib sweet talker owner said in the whole of bugis street he was probably the only one who use paper bag *indication of high class-ness....
plastic bag = low class?
eh. dude, didn't you hear the katy perry song? she sang about plastic bags, and many top brands make nice bags out of plastic, the only reason paper bags are seemingly better is because they are supposingly more biodegradable lah deh.
but. ahaaa! we proved him wrong! the last store we went to used paper bags too..!
it was a stall selling korean fashion...sis bought two lovely looking shoes!
so tempted to get one i saw which look so good...but just got a pair not too long ago so
*i'm such a good girl. not. Lols!

This is my second and last buy of the day.
A stretchy stretchy belt....i was choosing between this and one with a metal front...honestly i don't like wearing this kind of belt cause they suffocate you, girls and the things they put on to look good. but i'll never go to the extreme....hahahaa...knowing me right, i'll just ditch the killer looking heels and run off with a pair of sneakers. yay!

Too bad i didn't remember to take pictures until we went for dinner and i just took a few with my hp cam...ahh.
This was taken using my front camera of the hp.
i didn't know the quality varied from the front to the back of the camera...
look at the grainy pic! must have been on high iso...tsk.
but on the other hand...it makes my skin look good naturally...muahahahaa.
this was the initial picture we took because sis say her face looks 'too big' in this one we took the second one....when i was looking through (i very 专业ok. i filter before i put up, cannot make people throw face, esp me lah....cause most people look good naturally, just not me. -_- o god why.) this pic i realise she looks so good! Sis i'm sure you agree! *and i am not lying. cross heart*:D

Your wondering why we use the front camera instead of the back one right?
because of some smart alac...

as you all would know of me i seldom take 自拍 of myself so i can't really grasps the angle correctly...
and this was what happen....
i cut off the chin of both of us...and i suggested using the front to take...i will not do it again! haaha...
this picture looks so good right?
shhh. don't tell anyone...
i edited it
not too much though, i just took away my blemishes, sis doesn't have any and added a light glow to the pic....there's no skin condition a light glow can't fix!
there! Remember that little tip k peeps?

its a really pretty picture for a really happy day.

We went to Let's Sweets at Bugis to have Dinner.
this is chocolate parfait.
according to the reviews i later get to check out for the place it seemed to be a place highly warned upon...from lousy food to bad service and over priced it had it all....

but honestly, if you ask me?
i had an enjoyable time there and the food weren't all too bad at all! In fact both of us rather enjoyed it...but there is a saying right? When your happy anything taste good.

I was definitely happy having a meetup with sis so maybe it could be true!
*cheng cheng cheeennng* sound effect:p

or. we could be having easy to please tastebuds...maybe?
There was one thing which i thought would definitely be a mood dampener would be the alarm clock at each table...yes!!! 0.0 nani?!! an alarm clock to time you when your eating. Each clock is set with 70 mins when it rings you have 10 mins left to finish everything on your table if not you'll be fined $5.00 for every 200g.

Luckily for us when we went it was pretty empty and we had none of that, if not, i just might be one other customer with unpleasant encounter with the shop...we were able to take our time to try out everything we want....
we are such lousy buffet eaters, bringing us there would be a loss to our own wallets....because we eat little...but i think its so fun going with your galpal and getting to try so many kind of desserts!!!
so no regret, no complains. i think i wouldn't mind going back...if they are still surviving...

i especially love the fruit tarts and chocolate cake and brownie!
Oiishi desu!
we shared deserts so we could try a little of everything!
there's a hokkien saying:
一人一半, 感情不散

hahaha! yay! to long friendship!

i am a person who tends to be very awkward when it comes to a two person chat...i hate having awkward silences, but if i can get pass awkward silences and enjoy even if silences are there then yesh i'm sure we know each other very well enough. :)

i don't have many people who i can say i am comfortable to have just a two person dinner/lunch/breakfast chat with but ting is definitely one of them.

we could be laughing and chatting loudly one moment and enjoying the cakes and silence and surrounding the next. without the feeling that i need to feel up the empty silent space with something....it just makes you feel at ease.

Senang Diri! (hahahaa...if your in a uniform group, you might get this joke:P)

that's why i don't believe in arranged meetings...
(maybe not now. maybe next time i will? hor fang?)

we talked about lotsa stuff, old, new, gossip....
one thing i was very sad about to hear was one of my favourite teacher's child is sick with leukemia...if there's one teacher that i feel grateful to, it would hands down go to that teacher...not because she taught me the sea and the mountain but more because she very readily without pretense gave alot of love. It isn't the type you see in the idol drama kind....her is really motherly, no pretense. I really liked her, so she must be a good person, but why give her such hardship?

i hope good things will go her way soon.
though i also need alot of luck and good things, i think she needs it more right now...people above, please treat nice people nicely...
please give the poor kid a matching bone marrow much needed or any other miracle to cure the kid...

i would so wish to call, write and ask, how are you? how can i help you?
but truthfully what one can do is so little, but to pray.
I really hope a miracle goes their way, good people deserve good things.

i hope the lil one can find a suitable marrow soon.

fight on.

that was my day out with sis.
it was fun! really enjoyed:)
Haven't been out together enjoying doing nothing, ok, something but nothing in particular for a long time, so its a good treat for busy people like her to meet me.

lets do it more often ok sis?
