Back in Sing

6 months seems to have flown past, yet everything seems a little bit different. The living room with the dicky small TV looking out of place, the toiletries in the 2 toilets (ulu brands that I'd never dream of buying), the new toaster in the kitchen, sunflowers at the side of the road (wilting and TOTALLY out of place), and MRT's with refundable ezlink cards. Apparently the MRT thing has been like that for 5 years and I'm just suaku. The people in the bus all have their latest handphones and ipods. Compared to Sing, Syd is really down under and maybe I belong there afterall. Arghhhhh I wan my gadgets too!!! But even if I get the N-dunno-what Nokia there wouldn't be anything much to be snap happy cos I dun have any friends in Syd. Not the real friends I have in Sing anyway. Maybe it's just me, I dun make an effort anymore and all this negativity is boring even myself. Have to kick myself to get out there, stop nuahing and live a life.

It's a bittersweet and weird feeling to be back. So happy on friday, and then the guilt is slowly seeping in...not spending enough time with family, with friends, with cat, and here I am on the net like I have all the time in the world, and doing normal things like I'd never left.

Sidetrack: I almost struck 4D! Almost!!!!! Arghhhh, Stu's gonna kill me for not buying ibet. And if I'd bought 2109, the date I came back, $500 would have been mine!!!!! Fed up...

Mom's chanting her buddhist prayers in the background...Mimi's mewing softly at my dad to be fed. I didn't know what I missed most until now...ahh stop it, making myself sad again. Better go stuff my face with doughnuts.

You Are Most Like Carrie!

You're quirky, flirty, and every guy's perfect first date.
But can the guy in question live up to your romantic ideal?
It's tough for you to find the right match - you're more than a little picky.
Never fear... You've got a great group of friends and a
great closet of clothes, no matter what!

Romantic prediction: You'll fall for someone this year...

Totally different from any guy you've dated.

Just Crapping...

It doesn't take long for someone to come up with something corny:

"Steve Irwin wouldn't have died if he wore sunscreen - it would have caught the ray!"

And then, Peter Brock got smashed up and the first thing he heard in heaven was "Crikey, you're here too?"

I didn't even know who Brocky was.'s too short really. That's why I've finally ordered the stuff I need (not want) from No more hesitating, just get it! I will post my exciting review on the marshmallow body creme and the body polish w cinnamon when the goods arrive.

Stu and I are thinking seriously of getting the Toyota Hilux. Part of the fun comes from thinking about what personalised registration plate (or "rego", as they call it) to get. Will it be ST00PD or GO00SE?? We can even have MO00PY or ZU00ZU, but of cos we can never agree on which one. Maybe IB11TE or WE81TE, especially when the puppies are in it. Of cos Stu wants FI15HY, but my favourite is still SH11TT.

A Better Week

Yes, I can feel the tension and stress of the past few months melt away. The new boss seems easy going and more importantly, very intelligent. I can't wait to learn from him. Maybe he's got a bit of bad breath but I'll much rather take that than that piece of garbage anytime. After 5 months of being conditioned to be stupid and useless, it's still hard to get my voice back. But at least I'm thinking about the actual work now, and not the garbage or office politics. It's already September, but still another 5 months to the end of the dog year. I dun usually believe in this shit, and I hope the next few months prove the astrologists (or whatever u call them) wrong. "Fan Tai Sui" is an understatement in my case, just want to move forward, contribute and be happy in my job without fan'ing the new tai sui.
