Comex is a horrible place!

Went to Comex at Suntec City just now and I HATED IT!!! There's possibly like 80% of Singapore population in there and people just walk without minding other people! There was this woman who was pushing a pram with a girl inside who looks like 5-year old! And she's still inside the pram!!!

Please mothers, leave your kids at home if you're going to the Comex, this is not exactly like going to the playground!! We don't need your screaming and misbehaving kids at this already crowded place!!

And then there's this couple who suddenly just cut our path and I was half way moving and that guy's shoes just pull up my toe nails!!! It's damn painful loh!!!! The pain just stay there even until I reach home, totally ruined my mood lah!

And you think it's really good bargain inside there? Think again... Is it worth to be squeezed with 1 billion other people to save 20 bucks? I think this is the first time I went to Comex and most probably the last one as well!

Donut Gathering or Not

Ok this is not very recent, maybe last Thursday if I remember correctly, we were supposed to meet up for donut gathering but somehow ended up eating everything else except donut! We went to Canele or Cenele (can't remember the name) at Raffles City.

I think the food is ok, not fantastic but the place is nice and meeting friends always make me feel good especially when they are really good fun! We were sitting just opposite this waxing house called Strip and Akh commented that all the girls that came out from there walk funny... HAHHHAH.. :p

We didn't wear green on purpose! Actually I was waiting for them at Swatch watch outlet and I realized that all the shop assistants there were wearing green as well! I just had to flee from the shop before someone asked me for help in that shop!

After dinner, we ordered dessert.. 2 yummy cakes!! And Akh was not taking part in the cake-eating contest.. maybe because we kept on telling him that his fingers are fat..

And now I realized that I didn't take photo of the cake that I ordered!! I can't believe how forgetful I am!! And Akh is camera-shy, so this is the best I can do.. Take photo of him when he was settling the bill!

Seriously, for someone who deals with camera a lot, he really prefers to be behind the lense than in front of it.. scare the lense crack? HAHAHAH sorry Akh since you are so mean to me, I can't help it! Ok and why is he mean to me? Keep reading..

I went to Jess trial make-up to help her take photo and see if the make-up nice and the evening gown that she just chose as well (main reason is just to kaypoh lah actually. I shall not post the photos here coz I dunno which one she wants to show.. and then her hubby arrived with this big A4 paper box. I thought it was their ang pow box at first and I was so terrified!! Then I looked closer..

So mean right!!! And then.. zoom even closer..

46!!! Well I do hope I still look like now when I'm 46.. hee hee.. :D

As if that's not enough, they even asked for donuts!!

And they still dare sign-off with their real names loh.. but I know the mastermind of this whole mean thing must be Akh lah...

But me being the kind, big-hearted, and forgiving soul that I am *ahem*, I shall hold no hard feeling towards them.. Actually it's becoz the inside of the box is so much nicer than the outside lah..

They also gave me this green luggage strap in case I lose my luggage again!!

And then since Akh couldn't come to the fitting and I couldn't thank him personally, me STILL BEING THE NICE AND WELL-MANNERED ME, sent them an email to thank them for the present..

And Akh being the mean person that he is replied..

And I'm not even 27 yet !!!!!! ARGGHHH!!! And Jess is probably going to buy 4D.. 2727 or 2736.. taking advantage of other people's misery..

Laughter is the best medicine

Wife is like TV, girlfriend is like Handphone
At home watch TV, go out bring Handphone.
No money, sell TV. Got money change Handphone.
Sometimes enjoy TV, but most of the time play with Handphone.
TV free for life but Handphone, if you don't pay the services will be
TV is big, bulky and most of the time old, but Handphone is cute, slim,
curvy and very portable at any time.
Operational cost for TV is often acceptable but for Handphone is high and often
Most Important, TV got remote.. Handphone don't have..

Last but not least........

My slightly more colorful weekend

After a few boring weekends, I finally have a less boring one this week..hehehe sounds sad huh? :D

Anyway, Jess told me about Phillips warehouse sale and how good it was last year or 2 years ago where they bought most of the electrical appliances for their new flat at Fernvale. So I was really convinced and went there yesterday. The sale is in Toa Payoh near their big office building, but before we went there we sent my in-laws to drop their donation at Salvation Army and then dropped them at Thomson Plaza (never been there before, must go there some day!).

Ok so when we reached the Phillips Warehouse Sale place, the place was full with people! A lot of them parked illegally along the road but we were lucky coz we tried our luck by going in to the building car park :D

We saw Jess and TTS there, she only bought an iron! How disappointing! I was imagining TTS carrying 3 big boxes hahahahaha :D It was really hot and humid and there were lots of people trying to squeeze their way to the bazaar table! There's this fat uncle who came later than us and then positioned his body so near behind me! STUPID CHEE KO PEK!!! and then when the person in front of me decided not to buy the watever stuff, that uncle just cut the queue!!! SUCH AN UGLY BEHAVIOUR!!!

Ok so watever lah, despite all these hassle and squeezing and trying to be more kiasu than other people, we managed to buy a radio clock, a shaver for my hubby, and a new home theatre set for our entertainment room! That radio clock is such a good bargain, only 20 bucks! And it means that I don't have to wake up shocked by my other alarm clock, I swear that one can wake the whole block up! Now I can wake up to 91.3 radio :D

We could have bought more stuff since we have a new flat but our dearest friends somehow managed to buy us stuff that we need and don't already have and none of them gave duplicate stuff! They are all so clever!!

Just as we finished shopping there and walking to our car, I felt drizzle coming down... such a good timing huh.. but the sale was done outdoor and I wonder what happened to those ppl after that. I also told my sister (who was still at home when I reached back!) that it's now raining, so maybe she didn't go at all.

Then we had a quick lunch as my hubby was going to help his fren move stuff from his office to his rental flat. After he left, I just slept.. hahaha.. until someone called me from my nice beauty sleep.. I tried to ignore it coz I thought it was my sis asking me to go out with her.. hahaha.. then the person tried to call my blackberry (which has a louder ringtone!) and then when I tried to pick it up, the line was cut off! And then suddenly the door bell rings outside!!! Arrgghh... why are there so many ppl disturbing me!

Turned out it was my hubby and his frens carrying a big black sofa bed! I just looked at them sleepily and they wanted to put the big sofa straight away to the entertainment room but I told them that the other sofa is still inside, gotta take that one out first. Then my hubby heroically said "It's ok, I will do it myself later" (direct translation from Chinese) - wo che qi cuo.. dunno whether it's the corect pinyin or not.. but it's definitely not wo MEN che qi cuo.. which means WE do it ourselves later.. (ok save the story for later)

Then he left again to continue helping his fren to move stuff from the lorry (I assume) to his fren's flat. Then me.. continue sleeping.. hahahaha.. ok maybe this is still a boring weekend lah.. then when I'm awake again, my hubby was at home again and my in-laws are outside.. hahahaha.. then he said we're going dinner with his frens so I gotta go n wash my face etc etc.. so that at least there's no drool on my face!

We went to Bedok for dinner.. I dunno what's the name of the place even though I was the one who drove there. My horrible husband is very bad in giving directions loh! He said keep left here.. and then we drove on the slow left lane for maybe 2 km, then he said yah turn left here.. omg!!.. then sometimes he made me drive wrong way as well! So stressful laahh.. And even though there's a Google Map in my blackberry, he sometimes refuse to look at it! SO EGO LAH!!!

After dinner, we went to IKEA Tampines.. We bought 2 smaller cushions and cushion covers, table lamp, curtain for our bedroom side window, etc. I think our flat look a little bit nicer after today :D

*finally posted the photos here..*

Sunday was just a peaceful day.. my hubby went to meet his frens at Changi Airport and he didn't wait for me!! MEAN PERSON!! And turned out it's not just that friend's farewell, they were also celebrating somebody (that I know)'s bday! And they had cakes and stuff!!! HE'S A BIG MEANO!!! So now he owes me cakes!

And then at night, we went to eat dinner with sis-in-law family at Noble House.. is that the name? The one by Tung Lok at UIC building. We had ala carte buffet, so to make the most of the $$$ that we (ok bro-in-law) paid, we have to eat more stuff! I ate until my stomach was going to burst!!

Google Beijing Olympic 2008 Gadget

Check out this gadget that can show event schedule and also medals received by all the countries.. I know it's a little bit too late though, but if you have iGoogle, this gadget is actually added by default.

Friends Migrating..

A friend is leaving for Canada today and she probably won't be back for 2 years if she doesn't like it there.. and if she does like it there, maybe she'll stay there for good?

Another one is leaving for NZ next week and she's someone who I met up with frequently for lunch and talk almost everyday on chat softwares, I'm going to miss her a lot..

You see as a foreigner living in SG, I lost contact with most of my primary, junior and senior high school friends, except those who always studied in Singapore, but then again some of them went back to Indo after graduation.. so I don't really have that much friends left over here..

Of course, there are also new friends that I met here and we meet up quiet frequently for dinner or just chit chatting, but is there guarantee that they will never migrate out of this tiny island as well?

As for me, I like Singapore. I like the fact that this place accepted and welcomed me even though I was not born here, the fact that ppl get along well with people from other races, etc. The thought of getting Singapore citizenship crosses my mind more than 100 times, and I in fact has prepared the application forms etc, but there's a lot of documents to prepare and I'm just plain lazy.. the last time I went to ICA, I forgot to bring my passport! I just can't understand why these lucky Singaporeans want to leave this nice country.. maybe the grass is always greener on the other side.. or they just don't know how lucky they are until they live in another country..

Depressed at home

Have you ever feel like staying outside longer and not go home? But you can't really point out what's wrong at home.. well you can but at the same time you can't without being objective about it.. that's exactly how I feel recently..

Sometimes I also feel like a guest in my own house... it's depressing... lock myself in my room.. pretend to read books or magazines..

There are also things that are rightfully yours but it feels wrong to claim it..

I know I may not be talking sense here, but it's exactly how I feel recently..

Interesting YouTube videos

My friends share their favourite YouTube videos and some of them are really good, so I'm listing them here with all my blog readers (as if there's a lot of them like that.. hahaahha)

Ok the first one is quite funny, this guy did quite a good mime on Natalie Imbruglia's Torn song. Natalie liked it and did another performance with him!

She's cool huh! :)

Ok next video is about evolution of dance.. this guy is very cool and the video is very funny :D

Next video.. you shouldn't watch it if you're flying soon or have phobia of flying.. insane airplane landing.. I wouldn't want to be on that plane..

The plane took off again!! gosh!!

Random Happenings

Finally uploaded photos from digicam and this blogger is back to work! Ok.. I shall just go by the order the photos were taken since I can't really remember the dates..

Since we have a car now, my hubby decided that we should explore places that are not accessible by public transport, so one night he drove me to Lower Peirce Reservoir, but I didn't take photos there.. and then during one of the weekend, he drove me to Upper Peirce Reservoir (the spelling looks funny huh? but apparently that's how it's spelt.. look at the sign board photo)..

The sun was really really bright that day, it was hard to take photos without squinting my eyes! It was really hot also.. I almost thought that it counter-effect my showering that morning..

And then we went to Downtown East, that place changed a lot since I been there last time! It's much more happening but still very family centric, it's those kind of place where I will think "I will bring my kids here next time.." Look at the colorful ferris wheel!

And on another random occassion is Meg's farewell dinner. She's going to further her studies overseas so she might not come back for perhaps another 2 years... oh man, why are all my friends migrating out of this country?? Anyway, we went to NYDC at Bugis Junction and ate until we were so full.. or maybe drink elephancino until we were TOO full..

And of course must take group photo.. so vain..

We finished about 9+ and I was waiting for my hubby to pick me up and then he told me to go to Suntec and fetch him instead since he drank beer. Remember "Don't Drink And Drive!" hhaha.. anyway, so I took MRT (lazy to walk laa..) to City Hall and took the new underground pass to Suntec. This is still ok..

And the next day I went to Funan to fix my O2.. stupid phone.. the adapter died like within 3 months, but since I can still charge it using USB, I never bother to bring it back to the shop for repair. And recently the O2 battery run out very fast, so I thought I might as well bring both the adapter and battery to the repair shop before the warranty expires in September. Alas, they told me that the warranty for accessories is only 6 month.. duh! Anyway, so I went there for nothing and then my MEAN husband asked me to go Bugis so that he can avoid ERP charge..

You see.. I was at Bugis the previous day, then gotta go to City Hall.. and then I was at City Hall, he asked me to go Bugis... mean!!!

Anyway, despite him being mean to me, we still managed to take fun photos with our new hats :p

Yeah!! I got Blogger hat!! Got it from the Google store :)

Ok, continuing our exploration effort to inaccessible area, there was one day that we went to East Coast Park for dinner. We found this place that sells Japanese and Korean food, can't remember what the name is. The place is quite cosy and the waitress was friendly.

Ok, shall blog again next time when my life become more exciting :p

Chinese man killed and ate his victim on the bus

My friend sent me this picture and it's sooooo crazy!! The poor guy was sleeping.. he didn't even offend the guy or anything.. and since he was sleeping, there was no way he could defend himself.. Psychotic!!!
