My Tarot Card Reading

I am The Empress

The Empress can refer to any aspect of Motherhood. She can be an individual mother, but as a major arcana card, she also goes beyond the specifics of mothering to its essence - the creation of life and its sustenance through loving care and attention. The Empress can also represent lavish abundance of all kinds. She offers a cornucopia of delights, especially those of the senses - food, pleasure and beauty. She can suggest material reward, but only with the understanding that riches go with a generous and open spirit. The Empress asks you to embrace the principle of life and enjoy its bountiful goodness.

Closing a chapter

Today...today is a significant day in my life. I've finally closed the chapter of 7 years. It should have been done earlier, if I hadn't been procrastinating.

Its kinda sad that things had to turn out this way. But its probably for the best. I know we've had some good times together and I'm glad we did. Keep those happy memories. 7 years was a long time. Maybe too long. I guess somehow along we lost it, that feeling, it just all went dead. Maybe you never realised it coz it slowly creeped in the door, or maybe you did too, but you being you, hoped that nothing was wrong and that somehow, we would get back to how we were before.
Unfortunately, some things when lost can't be found back.

I've let go. In fact I think I let go on that day I passed you that letter. I was really sad too that I had to be writing you all that, but those were the truth and the truth mostly hurts. But things seemed like were all headed for the end too. Why did you say all those things when its already too late? (When you chose to remain silent all the while before) Gee. Maybe, maybe someday when we look back, we'll will realise where it all went wrong. I had to do what I did and say what I said coz it was all stuck for so long (if you knew, the situation made me miserable) and dragging on like that would not do either of us any good. But still, thanks for everything you've done for me. I know you're feeling sad, but it'll pass and I hope you'll be able to move on. (Though I know I probably won't ever be able to tell you all these and you'll probably never read this either.)

I'm glad its finally over. *relieved* (I must thank my momsy, lucky for me that she was around.)
No. Not that I am beaming right now though. In fact, its quite the opposite. I feel shitty...coz i feel bad. Yeah...I've just made someone miserable and I hate that feeling. But I guess it will pass one day. Honestly,its better this way. I feel like a ton is off my shoulder. I got to say what I wanted to say and got the message across. Its a closure for me, for us. Now I just hope both parties can now move on and get over it.

Lately, a lot has been happening around me. And I really mean a lot!
So now, here I am on a fresh page. A new chapter.(At 3am in the morning) A little apprehensive, but intrigued too. So many possibilities on this new road ahead
...and everyone has been telling me: Change is good. Really have to thank everyone for being around. If any of you are reading this, thanks for the support, really! Glad I have you all around to travel along this road with me. It makes me feel a lot better knowing I've got you guys around! Thanks.

Everybody's gotta learn sometime

Oh, here I am, standing at another crossroad in my life, wondering which way I should take. So many questions going around my head and decisions to make.
Many things to let go off and so much new things to know.

Read this phrase from my current read which I find very true.
"If we don't get lost, we'll never find a new route."

Wow....I think it really applies to me right now.

Dim Sum Dollies

Caught Dim Sum Dollies just now at the Esplanade with Derek. It was great! It was witty! It was hilarious! It was a full house sellout! I'm so glad I caught it before it wrapped up its season. *Thanks Derek! Would have really missed out. Hehe* The cast were all really funny. I like the whole thing...from the script to the stage set up. I think we both enjoyed it and I haven't laughed this much for a long time.

Yeah...so DimSumDollies have made my weekend a good one! :)

And got to catch up with Karen and Ker Jia over dinner/light snack.
That was good too. :)

A day out on a MTV Shoot

Thursday was MTV day. Went along with Mark n Jo as they were kinda shorthanded for their shoot. Partly also because I wanted to experience it a little and also to take a look at the locations. My job for the day was to flim the "making of/behind the scenes" video. Downside was that I had to start out at 5.30am. Can't remember the last time I woke up that early!!

We all met up in office and moved off at about 6am. 7 of us squeezed into a bright yellow van (transport for the day) together with loads of equiptment and were on our way to Location No.1 for the day: Changi Sand Quarry. Wow...I've certainly never been to one. Travalled around changi for a bit as we got kinda lost. But it was ok with the cool morning breeze blowing into the van and the nice view I got. Passed by the runways of the airport, saw a plane landing. Something I've always liked to see :)

We finally found lampost 147! Location marker...on a lampost!!!? That's how ulu is the place is. It really looked it to. We had a bumpy ride in as there was no more road...just sand tracks. After bumping along for sometime, we finally came to the location point. Time to begin setting up.

Wah... I really must say...despite the ulu-less, this place was kinda special! So many nice textures and interesting photos to take. There
was an unused runway and one in use just next to it, behind a barbed wire fence. The whole place was, erm, well, sandy! But I liked it. I really don't see any way I'll ever come here again!

Weather wasn't very good. It was sunny at first but as the day passed, the clouds rolled in. And soon, it was raining. No, wait... pouring!! And super windy. The kind where you can hear the wind blowing pass your ear. Brrr... We had to halt shooting a few times due to the on and off showers and that made us fall behind time on schedule.

. And while we were there a family of doggies came up to say hello and probably look for food. Poor things! They were all skinny! :( I had to give my bread to them. I think they needed it more than me. They were cute coz they waited patiently for me to throw them the bread pieces. After our friendly encounter with each other, they kind of hung around during the whole shoot, coming up to the van whenever I went there. :)

Despite being wild dogs, i thought the Mama dog was really sweet looking actually. Aww.....
We finally wrapped up the shoot at about 2pm and headed back out into civilization again. Byebye doggies! Take care! :(
On to lunch and location 2. Mitre Hotel at Killney Road.

Most of us were staving by then!

For those of you who have never been or heard of Mitre Hotel, hehe, well, let's just say that its not your everyday, normal kind of hotel. For one thing, Mitre Hotel is 140 years old and definately looks like it has not been renovated or cleaned for 140 years! Well, it sure is quaint, old, erm..musty and... not to mention it looks like it is falling apart! Good to know that it is currently being refurbished coz it would probably be declared structually unsafe if not done so soon.

The entrance to Mitre is an old, worn out gate and the hotel is atop the slope. Don't remember seeing any sign board or indication that its a hotel from out there. But it apprently has a good following with many expats here. The rooms are on the 2nd floor which we did not get to see as only tenants are allowed up. I can't imagine how the rooms would look like really. Mitre has a mixed up collection of retro, vintage, old looking chairs. The
real authentic kind... probably a collection made up over 140 years!
Below are some pics of this special place. Shooting went on here till 12am. Haha...of coz by then I had already called it a day. It was an interesting experience but also a tiring day!

Mini Birthday Party

Yesterday was Tang Qian's birthday. (In fact I had 3 friends who celebrated their birthdays yesterday!)

Anyways, we had a little party (yes...little! Just the 4 of us) in the office for her. Picked her a cake on my way to work. Hehe.... from Swiss Bake once again. (All the birthday cakes for the past birthdays in office have all been from there so far!) We had Strawberries and Cream cakey yesterday! It was yumz! :) And we had the present giving/opening session too!

Happy Birthday Tang Qian! Hope you liked your presents!

Here are some pics from our lil party! Heehee! ^-^

Fly, fly, fly by

Aww man! My weekend is half gone!! *sob*
Don't ask me what I did today though...coz I dunno either.
Saturday zipped by me in a blur. Spent most of the day at home. Mainly bumming around and trying to do up a little project I have in mind...but not much inspiration.

Dunno what I'm going to do tomorrow yet. Not much planned except for the early half of the day when I'll be going to Far East Plaza. That's about it. Maybe I'll make a trip to the library and go check it out a bit more since I did not really get a chance to on Thursday coz it was closing in half an hour's time by the time we got there. For those of you who have not been there yet, let's just say it looks REAL good! You should go if you haven't!

Hahaha...today Mark asked me over MSN "What do people do on weekends?" Hrmz... it got me thinking a bit. When you have a whole bunch of friends, weekends are probably packed with outings and such. What if you passsed it alone? Would you laze in bed all day? Sleep it away? Bum around at home?
So, if you had a weekend alone, how would you spend it?

National Day

Wow! This year's National Day is fun! Probably one of the most fun one for me

We had a small party at Karen's House. BBQ party then we got to watch the fireworks display! :) Yay...more fireworks for me! We had really good food! Thanks Karen, for stuffing us with so much good food. Everything was homemade somemore! We had Yakitori, Satay, Otah, Corn, Veggies and lots of other yummies. The prawns were really good!!

I think everyone had a good time! After having our yummy BBQ-ed dinner, we climb over to the rooftop of Bras Basah Complex to get an unblocked view of the Fireworks Display! Haha...had to say the climb was kinda adventurous for me.
Here's how we got across. (Kids, don't try this!)

It was worth it! :) Yupz!! We had many "Ooh and Ahh" moments as we watched the fireworks together there on the rooftop! :) Gee...it was really fun! What a day! Really am looking foward to the next party. Hehe! ;)

One little piggy came to work

Yupz! Pigme makes a trip to work with me today.
But first she had to take a bath to look good and cute.
(not that she doesn't already!)

Before coming to work, we dropped by the vet's for her manicure. Torture for her rather! Nails are a sensative issue here, and she hates getting hers clipped.

I could her her squealing "Whhheeekkkkkk...!!!!" amidst all the barking and meowing there. Oh gee, poor girl! Was all grumpy and trumatised when she came back out. :(
Stuffed her with her favourite apple pieces later when we got into office, in a bid to cheer the greedy lil one up.

Haha....everyone commented on how fat and cute she is! Not that she really cared as she was busy gobbling down apple bits! :)

My Weekend

Oooh....there goes another week!
This marks the end of my 2 weeks alone in the office! Yupz...Emoxis will be back in from tomorrow.... Hehehe...kinda gotten used to being alone actually. But company is always good.

Had a good weekend though I broke my usual routine. (No Sentosa for me this week. hehehehe!)
Saturday rained...it rained almost all day! Stayed in till late afternoon before heading out. Went to Karen's place for dinner. There was the National Day practice on that day too. We had a perfect view of the fireworks display! :) Was cooking halfway but we rushed out to watch it anyway!

Wheeee....!! Pretty! Here's some shots that I caught with my cam!

Oh, so excited! We are planning for a National Day party! Yay! Its gonna be at Karen's again so we can all watch the fireworks display again! Gonna make red and white the dress code for that evening! HAhaha...that will be so funny!
People will be thinking what a bunch of 'on' people we are...must be really patriotic or what.
So that's something to look foward to!!Hope this week sails by.....

Meanwhile, I juz wanna thank all you nice people who have came by the office to keep me company, those who've brought up lunch takeaways (ta-paos), those who brought me out for lunch and those who kept me company during work (via MSN) and also after work dinners! Hey, you guys are great! Thanks a zillion! *muacks* :)
