Corpse Bride

Another Tim Burton's hit.... Corpse Bride! Just watched it a while ago with D.
Nicely done and entertaining too. I enjoyed it.
With all sorts of quirky characters and equally quirky songs, just like Nightmare before Christmas. And Emily reminds me of Jane from Nightmare too.
Great animation and some 3D effects/animation this time round.

Let's see, I'll give it 4/5. Its worth a watch!

How fragile life is

This morning got to feel how fragile life can be from some sudden news.
One day you're up and about and the next, you're gone, snuffed out like a candle flame.
Geez, it sorta makes me cherish everyone and everything around me so much more. The importance of letting them know how much they really mean to you coz you might not always have the chance to say bye. That's how sudden it can be. And its really sad when I think of it, if you missed out letting them know how much they meant to you.

So, here's something to you from me:

I'm hoping you'll read this blog. I'm on the topic of "telling people how much they mean to you" and it relates to you and me. I'm one of those people who sometimes find it hard to say "I love you". I guess I always assume you know it, and that I don't need to say it. I also don't want to feel awkward or be embarrassed, so I tend to avoid telling you how I really feel. The truth is that I love you so much, and feel very lucky to have you in my life. Maybe this little announcement is unexpected. Perhaps you are surprised to begetting this from my blog. But now that I've told you this way, I hope to be able to tell you "I Love you" more often. I just wanted you to know. Okay, now that you do, you can go on with your surfing.

Monday blues...

-Doodle for the day-

Monday... its over... well, at least for me. (D's stuck in office working till now)
Felt kinda tired during work today.(Except when it was lunch time!Hee...)
Took some time out to doodle for today too. Hehe... sense that holiday mood is visible in the doodle? Oh well... feeling drained probably, plus the gloomy weather in the morning didn't do much to help lighten the Monday moodiness.
But the day passed fast, which was a good thing! Now, let's brace ourselves for Tuesday that's looming just ahead. Let's llok at it this way, its 2/5 of the week gone. :)

Sleeping to dream

And I
I'm dreaming of sleeping next to you and feeling like a lost little boy in a brand new town
I'm counting my sheep and each one that passes is another dream to ashes
And they all fall down.

And as I lay me down tonight
I close my eyes
What, what a beautiful sight

Sleeping to dream about you
And I'm so tired
Of having to live without you
But I don't mind
Sleeping to dream about you and I'm so tired

I found myself in the riches
Your eyes, your lips, your hair and you were everywhere
I woke up in the ditches, I hit the light and I thought you might be here
But you were nowhere (you were nowhere)
Well You were nowhere

And as I lay me back to sleep
Lord I pray that I can keep

Sleeping to dream about you
And I'm so tired
Of having to live without you
But I don't mind
Sleeping to dream about you and I'm so tired

It's just a little a lullaby to keep myself from crying myself to sleep at night
Oh just a lullabye to keep from crying myself to sleep
Oh just a, just oh, just a little lullabye,

Sleeping to dream about you
And I'm so tired
Of having to live without you
But I don't mind
Sleeping to dream about you and I'm so tired

Well I'm so, I'm tired
I'm falling, I'm so tired, I'm so tired

Sleeping to dream-Jason Mraz

Well, that's my current listen.....

Saturday....came and gone. Another day has passed.
Fast but yet so slow....(If you know what I mean...)
Its raining again... another rainy night.

D called a while ago. Yupz! He sounds great...BKK sounds even greater! Hehe... Hrmz... wonder when I'll get myself there...??
And Yay! He comes back today! :) See you soon D!

Thoughts late one stormy night

Today, D goes off for his Bangkok trip. (Without me!! Sob sob...miss him...) >.<>

Somedays, I wonder, why I am working so hard for? But give when I feel I wanna give up, looking back at how far I've come, part of me can't bear to. Geez, really, don't know what's the next step I should take.

Today also proved to me that sometimes I should just speak my mind and not worry so much about reactions/feelings of the other party. Its just blind worry and sometimes things are not always as bad as you thought them out to be. I can feel a load off my shoulders right now having said what has been on my mind. I like this, that I am solving one problem at a time. Though some could have been done earlier, its better late than never.

Right now, tossing about in bed. I'm so tired that I can't get to sleep! Strange right?? Its stormy out there now. The sky's red and thunder keeps rumbling. The alcohol from this evening 'Girl's night out' is wearing off... or is it? But why do I feel so strange? Maybe I just miss D... waiting here for sleep to come to me, but how long will I have to wait...?

Well, well... I'm 27 today!
Another step nearer to the big "3"! Ha!
Wow...there's been so many changes taking place in the last year. Major ones...
Its quite unbelieveable when I think back about it. But well, I'm just going to look ahead and look forward to what's to come. :)

Just had my little birthday party in the office.(See pics)

Thanks guys, for everything! :) What can I say... A big thank you, lotsa hugs and kisses to everyone who made this day of mine extra special! (From the present from Melbourne to the sms greetings that made my morning!) Oh geez... I'm so loved by you guys I feel like the luckiest person alive at this moment! First time I got a birthday cake and mini celebration at 12am, have lil notes n flowers waiting in the morning at the doors at home and office and came back from my lunch date with Mama and Godma to find a pretty pink bunch of flowers waiting for me!

D, you're so sweet I really dunno what to say! I really am surprised by your surprises! Heehee.... The drawing you did... its SO nice! :) I like it... VERY MUCH! *muacks!*

Countdown: 2!

Break time! Its Doodle for the day! (Missed a few last week!) :P
Yupz yupz! 2 days to go! Hurhurhur.....

How unfortunate! It's going to be a real busy week ahead. Damn it... thot I could have an enjoyable one and maybe even sneak an off day on 'My Day'. But... oh well... (darn! wishful thinking Mat!!) looks like I'll have to work around it.

Monday... wonder why I'm feeling kinda tired today. (I am usually ok on Mondays...)
Oh dear... hope its not the effect of age catching up on me! Ha!
One submission done...another to go!
Hang in there... but time's slipping fast!

Mmmm..... muffins! Baked some white chocolate and strawberry muffins for us tomorrow! :) My first attempt at these.

Friday, September 09, 2005


Met up with Jeanette and Judy for lunch yesterday. Its really been some time since I saw them both! Wow... everyone has changed so much! Its was great to be able to catch up again and talk about all the mischief we went through in secondary school. Those were the crazy days... of terrorising the prefects and teachers!
Class 5B of '95! I'm sure they'll remember us! :P

Aa well, everyone's starting on their own new journeys in life. Jeanette is getting married in October and Judy is getting her Australian P.R and so am I starting on my own 'new road'. Well, all the best to the three of us! Glad our paths crossed along the way! May we always find happiness at the end of whichever road we travel. :)

And oh... on to another topic for the day! (This is the highlight!)

Let's do a countdown...
to Mat's 27 years on this planet!
Today, there's officially 5 days to go!
Hey people, have you bought her presents yet? Time to start thinking what to get!

-No ideas? Clueless? Don't be silly, just give her a call and ask! ;)

Its time out from work again!
Looking at today's doodle, I think you should know what this entry is about.
Had a good one to one talk with Mr. Bunny today on his recent bad temper and attitude. (For those of you who don't know, Mr. Bunny a.k.a Small Bunny is the resident rabbit residing in my balcony.)
You see, recently he has been kinda grumps and a little rude too. He head butts my feet for biscuits and grunts/growls at me when its time for him to go back home to his cage. And I have not even gotten on to the topic of his bad toilet manners too. Gee... I hope I have not spoilt him!!?
Anyway, I hope the talk we had this morning would change this a little. He's a dear lil fat fella when he's not grumps and I explained that the common corridor outside is probably no where like his comfy balcony.
Hope he reflects on it during his time alone this afternoon while he is in camp.
(Yes, camp... you read it right! He camps.)


Some nice sunset pics I took on my way home a few days ago. I like sunsets. So nice and firery! :) Adds so much color to the normally plain blue sky....

Pinky - Sunsets are so pretty....

Sneak a doodle!

Ok..a 5 minute time-out from doing crappy projects! Here's a doodle for the day! (You know, I think I'm going to try doing one everyday) Ha! A pink bubble, a happy one at that! Hrmz... its best describes my mood for today. :) Yupz! Pink...and happy...pinky bliss! (That's what I'll call it! Plus I've got Saint Etienne blasting right now and a cute kitty on my lap! That's the life!)

Its been a long day for me. Was up since 6.30am this morning. Apparently my battery had reached "full charge" within 3 hours. So, decided to make the best of it and started work early.
Yupz! I'm done with my deadline for tomorrow! A day ahead! That's a good sign isn't it? After being bogged down with all this junk for the past few days. :) Been glued here on this same spot all day getting it over and done with! And the time just flew past! Gonna start on the next one and finish it before the end of the day. Hang in there!
Mid-week... here I come. :)

Oakdale Cats

Thot I'd put up spme pics of the 3 cuties at Oakdale!
There's Princess (with the pretty blue eyes),
Puddles (snozzing on the couch one afternoon) and...
Meow meow (the fat cat sitting up!).

They're all just so cute and rolly polly. :)

/- Meoww!!

A Saturday night

Wow....what a hectic work week but I've made it through to Saturday.
Downed 2.5 out of 4 deadlines this morning and I'm feeling really good!

Had a great evening that just upped this level of feeling good! :)

Went to see the Printmaking exhibit at the Esplanade.
Really brings me back to my days in NAFA, sitting in the printmaking room and carving away on my block of wood. (And got rewarded with splinters and a good print!) Ha... miss all that! Strange it all seems so long ago...

We had dinner at a quaint little place at the Singapore Flying Club.
Wow... I never thought a place like that existed in Singapore. Its really quiet and feels so untouched. Nice... Wonder how is it like to live there... (There are some really nice houses with big compounds there!)

Then walked dinner off with a stroll along ECP (Haven't been here since goodness knows when!) and got to watch people fishing at the jetty before heading home.

I think tonight has kinda relaxed me good some sorts. Hey! Just what I need for my tough week ahead. Thanks D!
Okays...lights out soon! (Flea & Easy tomorrow!)

-/Oops... I think I've fallen and I can't get up. At least not now, 'coz I don't mind sitting here in euphoria.

Saturday, September 03, 2005


Oh wow....its finally the weekend! Had an insane weekand of deadlines, meetings and more deadlines and I think there's another week like that coming up next week! I am now behind time on a few projects and have clients chasing me! :( Oh manz! I need 2 of me!! Ha...sometimes I really wonder how long I can go on like this. Holiday..... I need one so badly!! Geez. :(

Was hoping I could relax a little on the weekend but now I just got an urgent job in that I have to attend to on Saturday morning. Ha! There goes my "I dun work weekends" rule.(Yes, I am THAT busy!) But I will take a little break and go out in the evening. :)

Didn't get the Flea market stall for Sunday. Sigh.... was looking forward to it. haha... but now dunno if I had gotten it would I have energy to run it? Maybe its all working out well too. :P

Ok... time to get some sleep soon. I know my client is going to bug me in the morning. Nite!
