Super long deep thoughts entry

Everyone is so busy so much so that they hardly update their blogs anymore. I love reading my friends’ blogs, at least I know how they’re doing. =) Though of course I’m also not that free to read everyday..but I’ll read once every few days if I can manage.

Last time I can spend like 1 or 2 hours to play some Viwawa games everyday. Nowadays, I’m so busy that I hardly play anymore. As time goes by, the routine habit which I thought I had(to play at least 1 hour everyday) disintegrates. I think it has been more than 1 or 2months. Now, I do play when I’m have some time to spare, but it’s totally flexible. I can play 15minutes and then stop abruptly. It doesnt seem like a habit(to play at least an hour) which I cant kick already. And I’m very pleased with that.

There was a saying, if you repeatedly do or dont do something out of your normal routine for consecutively 29 days, it will make a difference or an impact after that.

Say, you always love to drink coke.
Then you can challenge yourself by NOT drinking coke for 29 days consecutively.

Say, you hate taking the stairs.
Then you can challenge yourself by taking the stairs for 29 days consecutively.

For the former, I guess your sugar level will definitely drop(provided you dont drink other soft drinks la). For the latter, your fitness level will definitely improve.

I’ll love a fitter body but as yet, I’m not that brave to take up the challenge. Lol. Hmm it’s definitely more sustainable and supportive if you have a buddy to do it with you. Even if that means both of you challenge yourselves with different things. That’ll be fun. =)

We had seen our photoshoot pictures. I told dearie to look forward with an open mind. It might not be as bad as it looks. True lah..it’s not as bad…but I really have alot of stuff which needs the help of photoshop. I look so f*cking plump. While viewing the pictures, I have to control myself not to straight away DELETE them from the folder when I found them to be too ugly.

I dont know why, despite the make-up looked okie after it’s drawn, it looked horrible in the pictures. And it got worse thereafter when it melted. So weird because my face actually looked very tan inside the pictures. I dont think I’m that tan right? The most amazing thing is, I asked dearie to look at my studio pictures; my hands are so much fairer than my face until they looked as if they dont belong to me. How can that be possible lah.

I discussed the makeup with Jy before, about how the MUAs were unable to elaborate my eyes like how I did myself. She said it’s most probably only the liner and fake eyelashes application. I can do them myself then let them take over to apply the eye-shadow as they’re still better at blending. I decided to do just that.

But now looking at the horrible makeup which appeared in the pictures, I think I’ll prefer Sally(my ROM MUA) to Miki(photoshoot MUA) as my MUA on my actual day. I know I very fussy lah..but bo bian, who ask me to be no where near 天生丽质。 =P Though I definitely prefer Miki in person because she’s a nicer and easy-to-talk-to lady. But Sally does give a better foundation finish, which is the most important part of a makeup. Haiz…kinda fan.

Original package comes with 28 pages 32 poses(pictures). Per additional pose is $50. But if add another album, will be $70 per page with additional pose $50 each. We topped up 35pictures more to 65. They gave us a discounted price of $1500, which is like 3 poses free. The photographer see until she cant take it liao when I keep delete and delete. Cut costs mah. She literally beg me not to delete because she said too few pictures album will not be nice as ours is digital-design. Damn funny lah. Though I doubt so lah, must be because of the commission. =P

We ultimately took up more pictures is not because I feel they’re fantastic OK. It’s merely because I had 5 different gowns in different backdrops and venues. Dammit. It really makes it more difficult to choose because per gown at every venue need at least 4 pictures to do a proper digital-designed page, in my opinion. At least can blend properly. We still have to go back and see the photoshopped pictures before they will design the album. Sigh..fingers crossed ah…please make me slimmer and fairer. I’m really not that tan leh..

I also requested for a 3piece suit for dearie to wear that day especially when his photoshoot didnt even have a vest to go with. We bought a greyish silver vest to match. I bought him that because it’s too short notice to request from NewImage. I know their limitations as a newly opened company.

However, our actual day is in AUG, still got 3months plus. I will want him to have a formal white vest to match his white suit on the actual wedding day. I told Capio directly I saw all grooms have 3 piece suits and it’s high time they have it no matter how new they are. And main reason is, in our office, everyone wear suits and ties and mostly with blazer. If they’re going to make my darling wear only a 2 piece suit, then it’s no difference from his attire in the office or when he meet clients lor! Stupid right?

I mentioned before she’s real good at EQ but this time round she gave me quite a silly reason to counter. She said most of her clients’ prefer not to have the vest. They prefer the simple 2 piece ones instead(shirt with tie, then blazer). ZzZz. I bet the grooms dont know what they’re missing as guys usually dont care mah. And most brides only care for their own gowns and not the groom.

Then she said, we should request if we want anything “extra” and she will try to accommodate. HAHA. I dont think it’s anything extra at all, not as if we request a tuxedo or anything. A 3 piece suit is the bare minimum, it’s the basic lor please. But she’s like that lah. Everytime when I get more direct, she will become very defensive with a monotone voice.

Scary lah this type of people because underneath you dont know what they’re thinking. They might be smiling at you but thinking of stabbing you. I dont lor, not even towards my clients. If I care about you means I really do. Some took me for granted, and I will speak up one. I will try to meet you according to the timing you desire, but hor, dont think because you’re the client then you can anyhow put me aeroplane and last minute change timing and expect me to teleport over. Once or twice nevermind, more than twice, then is too much right.

You busy, I’m also busy OK.

(Entry from this point onwards is about work, please skip if it might bore you or offend you in any way. =) )

But frankly speaking, some people are really quite..you cant be “soft soft” with them. They dont buy it one(不吃这套。). They dont seem to understand the importance of insurance. Then they thought you “soft soft” with them is because you want their sales when in fact you’re just being nice. Eventually when things(illness) happened, then they call you and cry. What can I do right? I can only claim for you, but that is provided you took up the plan mah. You didnt buy the one I recommended, you cry 3 days 3 nights I also cant help lor. So sometimes, I prefer the “hard” approach..hahaha.

Indeed this job is tough. It’s a thin line between being ethical and unscrupulous. But after being in this line for so long, earnings come secondary to being a life planner whom clients trusted and depended upon. Nothing cheers me more when a client called to inform they got a new job and has more budget for planning, so that I can plan for them according to the shortfall during the last review. Nothing cheers me more when clients ask for advise to invest in which funds, buy which product or put how much is better. =DDD

Sometimes it’s pretty funny. I had a client who is pretty young, as young as my brother, only 22 this year. But he’s very mature, saves alot and has great foresight and planning. Seriously, I seldom see such guys around in Sg, moreover in 1 so young. He’s the eldest in his family of 4 brothers. Really, I realised usually the eldest will plan more for themselves and usually are more mature than their peers because of their responsibility towards younger siblings since young. By the way, eldest doesnt refer to the only sons/daughters okie. =P

I’m more impressed with this client of mine when he’s actually half working and half studying ON TOP of supporting his brother financially and spiritually(by tutoring personally) to study poly all the way from a N’ level student. His dad doesnt support the family at all….he’s never at home. I’m not sure about mum but heard she’s always sick… Strangely all the 4 brothers dont like to talk about their parents..

And everytime he wants to top up his policies(he will call me)…even when the factfind seems ok..I will hesitate and ask, “you got enough to use or not?”

“Got lah dont worry”

“but your job now is part time only right? You haven graduate leh.”

“dont worry lah. Aiyoh you very losoh leh. I can pay yearly too.”

zzzZzzZz.

He definitely didnt win toto nor gamble. He just did lots of part-time job. But I didnt really see him scrimp and save actually…even his printer is those big-ass kind..And he told me it’s good quality, got dont know 3-in-1 functions one. =.=

To date..think his policies with me are more than $300 a month, I dont really remember…and he haven even own a permanent job yet. Sad to say, he’s so much well-covered than many old people(who needs more cover) and people who earns more than him(who also need more cover because of higher expenses). Not that I mean not well-covered means not good lah…different people have different priorities. Up to you~

Then hor..sorry I noticed I’m getting too long-winded on this story but it’s really funny. He introduced his brother to me to buy policies too. The one whom he tutored from N’level through ITE then to poly. Amazing rightttt? So this brother is also a poly student who works part-time. Only 17 years old.

You all must understand their parents dont give them pocket money at all. They all supported themselves, family of 4 brothers. Okie then he started low, $100 per month.

But I’m still worried..even after the factfind seems okie. Ultimately, he’s holding part-time job only cum studying at NYP…17years old…

“err…you sure you will have enough to spend?”

“ya”

*I hesitated*

My client(eldest brother) chupped in, “aiya you dont worry about him lah, he got alot of money one.”

=.= After he said that sentence, I saw his brother fished out a iphone.

ZzzZzz.

Okie.

They got another brother now serving NS, also bought policies from me too. The youngest brother didnt buy because too young le, think 14 or 15. And the 3 brothers who bought, has never experienced unsuccessful giro deductions.

I really feel it’s very amazing leh!!! Why my brother not like them?? Haizzzzz!!!

Some clients, I can easily sell them savings plans because they’re SO INTO SAVINGS. Aunties love savings. But when I look over all their policies, I noticed they dont have adequate insurance coverage against illness, hospitalization and surgeries. I dissuaded them to take the savings, but to take the critical illness cover instead.

So ultimately they dont wan to buy(the critical illness policy) lah, or some took up BUT lapsed the policies after sometime. So who lugi? I will say both of us lor. Because of pointing out what they need to buy instead of easily giving what they like to buy, I missed my sales or my PR ratio suffers. And suay suay 1 among this group of people contracted cancer. Can claim for cancer? Cannot lor. Only claimed death claim. And actually savings policies give higher commission than critical illness plan lor. Sometimes feel I’m so god-damn stupiddddd lah…sometimes it really doesnt pay to be kind lah.

But I agree I’m aggressive. No special reason, just that when I feel strongly about my opinions, I tend to get real focused and head-on directly on the point. I sound stricter and more formal. But of course if you give me a valid reason, or whatever reason, so long so it’s real, I can accept. Even reasons like “I hate Great Eastern, will never buy products from them.” works too. But dont give me crap excuses, sometimes really cant stomach.

I realised nowadays many people dont hold their promises. Of course what’s a mere promise to a life planner. But then I realised some of them are friends instead. Ouch, that hurts. Then I suddenly realised…actually alot of things, I dont have to live my life the hard way. I’m really too prim and proper liao, too straight.

Fion,
it doesnt harm much to break your promises once in awhile to friends since they also break theirs now and then to you.

It doesnt harm much to contribute lesser to the family especially when all people around seemed to contribute lesser, you dopey.

It doesnt harm much to let your SO pay for alittle more things…sometimes.

HAHAHA.

I’m so bad.

But really…comparison really makes you see alot of things…Though many things are real subjective and qualitative instead of quantitative…but really…..I think once in a while, you need to compare with the ton..or the “market”…then you know where you stand….

Like how you know whether a bf is mis-treating you by his actions? Simple..you always tell your close friends and ask whether their bf’s are like that right?

That’s comparison. And majority wins. Majority always wins. And the ultimate phrase which always come out is, “all guys are the same.”

It often marks the end of tons of complaints from a gang of girls.
Does anyone understand how I’m feeling and what I’m trying to say……..

Haiz……….

Chill club night

Last night met up with Kel for a drink at BQ. It wasnt so bad on a sunday night. There were still minimal crowd but yet not too noisy nor too quiet. I like, especially when our songs came pretty fast. After 2 jugs and approximately 4hours(wah we sure have alot to chat), we joined her colleagues at a thai club call..dont know what Sabai Sabai? It’s located at Shenton Way, just right beside the Partyworld.

It was a fun night but perhaps I wasnt in a very happy mood right now, so my tone is pretty monotonous and mean. Current mood does affect your writing style ya.

Got to know Kel’s very pretty colleague XL whom I feel strikes a resemblance with Stephanie Sun. However, I was vastly embarrassed when I mis-guess her age when she’s actually much younger. Er…Kel isnt very young mah, then I assumed her colleague also not that young loh. And with her permed hair, it’s no wonder I guess a tad older than her real age. I’m really very paiseh lah and grudged Kel why didnt warn me beforehand…we know how sensitive that can get. Anyway, right age or not, she’s still a glamorous babe. Peak age I would say, 22. How I miss those days. Now I’m just a shrivelled prune who is trying to hard not to gain lines and worse dark eye bags.

As for the male colleagues, not much deep impression except one who was thoroughly enjoying making me drink through lucky wins at group 5-10.

I hate group 5-10 lor. Really..more luck were at work than real techniques. I just itched to slap that grin off his face especially when his egoistic and “I-Must-Win-No-Matter-what” face irked me to the max while we were playing. I did had alot to drink, thanks to him, and my poor frequency with Kel. Of course I can take it no lying down. Promptly casually suggested to play 2 player 5-10 with him(2times consecutive win then constitutes a win).

He paid his dues heavily.

Frankly speaking, I dont think I’m very good at 5-10 at all. But I guess most people doesnt really play it frequently. Despite I seldom play it in the recent years, I had serious training when I was younger. Like 4 or 5 years ago lah.

Like all guys, after he realised he can almost never make me drink more than him in 2player 5-10, he proposed to change the game. So typical.

“Fine..what would you like to play?” I inquired with a smile.

Direction game, it is. You know the scissors, paper, stone game, finished with a point in directions. I cant explain it further if you really dont know the game lah.

And you know he’s much worse in this game than in 5-10. Because holy heavens, instead of using all 3 scissors, paper and stone, I realised he only plays with paper and stone. So it’s like, paper, stone, paper, stone, stone, paper, stone, paper. Goon-du~ With the cut in probability, of course he had much to drink lah.

And you know what makes it so funny and heart-soothing, he was laughing out SO LOUD while he made XL drank continuously back then in 2player 5-10 and while making me drank in group 5-10. Machiam win lottery like that. Really got so happy meh?

Hng~ I teach you to laugh that loud when you made a lady drink.

If it’s not that I have to leave early, I sure make him drink till he puke. Egoistic guys who sees winning so seriously really makes me so “bleh”, especially over something as trivial as gaming 5-10.

Eye-makeup: Snowy Fall
dsc03415-sony-psp
My eye makeup for yesterday night

dsc03414-sony-psp
Closed

It wasnt nicely drawn if you can see. The lining was crooked and too thick till the double eyelid looks single. Mistake mistake. Can be improved. But I like the colours..pretty snowy effect ya?

Stuff I’ve used.
dsc03425-sony-psp

dsc03428-sony-psp

From top clockwise
K’OSE, Luminous blush/highlighter A10ZC OR20(highlight browbone)
Bourjois, Ombre paupieres silver eyeshadow
O2 Skin, rose gold eyeshadow(to line the lower rim near eye tip)
TheFaceShop, Sparkling Pearl powder (for the overall snowy effect)
Black Cherry cream eye-liner
2 pairs of fake eyelashes
Oh forgot to include inside the pic, I also used Laneige Volumizing mascara on bottom lashes.

Makeup Tip of the day:
1)Use 2 pairs of fake eyelashes(simple, natural kind) to create a deeper eyelid crease and more natural looking lashes instead of 1 big bulky set of drama-looking lashes.

It’s different effect actually.

2) Use a wet sponge applicator to apply eyeshadow to create an more intense and lasting colour.

I still prefer my own eye-makeup than the bridal makeup artist, despite her 10+ years experience. =P La la la. I think it’s because I know my slit eyes better(I’ve known them for many years huh) and thus know how to enhance them. However, I dont know about blending the colours much. Hmm…….feel like doing my own eye-makeup on my wedding day…should I?

Saturday went out for frog legs dinner with dearie and his family in honour of FIL’s belated birthday. We enjoyed the dinner thoroughly and had alot to chat. MIL and FIL are more reserved people who only opened up after some time. FIL is still pretty quiet while I had alot to chat with MIL, regarding our wedding preps.

I asked about the new bed thingy and also about the 4 dian jin. I have my own set of opinions. Tradition dictates that every couple need a new bed mah..but we haven got our house. It seem unnecessary to buy 1 now especially when it’s going to be difficult to make sure the design matches the current room as well as new house deco. Therefore I consulted MIL’s views. She is pretty flexible but just worried my mum might mind. I said she’s flexible too. While we’re not overly superstitious, I also hope to follow some traditions if it’s not overly troublesome and impractical.

Another thing is, I will prefer a K size bed for the new house but my current room can only manage a Q size. It’s all giving me a headache. I really prefer a K size bed because when dearie sleeps, with his long hands and legs, he always manage to hit me at all the places where it hurts. Tamade. Also dont know whether he did it purposely or not. And so, for a while, we fought with the options whether to uphold tradition or to hell with myths.

However, when we strode into Tiong Bahru Plaza to browse the goldsmith shops for the 4 dian jin, we also caught Seahorse having a 50% sale.

To cut the story short, we decided to get the Q size memory foam mattress at the great price of $600(initially $1200). We shall not change the bed frame but will change a new mattress, pillow and such instead. The new bed frame will wait till we get a house then say. Easier to match reno this way. I’m pretty happy with the price and quality lah. As Seahorse is a pretty renowned brand. And I think a mattress of such branding below $1000 is a good deal indeed.

We also bought 2 memory foam pillows but no bolsters because I find them too hard. Shall get normal new ones instead soon. Oh Quilt too. And a red brand new bridal coverlet set.

As for the 4 dian jin, we did browse awhile, so as not to bore the guys. All the sets are $2000 and above. I saw 1 similar set which I liked from ChipLee in that store, at a much cheaper price and lousier quality. It’s like 1 or 2 hundred cheaper…I think it’s the artwork price. Gold price is more or less fixed at $48/gram. Sigh. If only I know whether gold price will go up or down in this 3 months? Anyone can share their valuable insights with me?

I did communicate with MIL about the 4 dian jin because this is real flexible. Some MIL bought on her own and gave it to the bride. While some shopped together with the DIL so as to buy something she likes. Of course the latter seems sweeter hor. And I told MIL frankly, I feel…most designs are pretty old-fashioned and if we’re going to buy those, they pretty much land in the safety deposit box forever and it’s going to be a waste. Such dowry items also cant be sold one anyway. So if we’re going to buy 1 traditional “ugly” set, please buy a cheap cheap set, because I feel no point lor if spend so much on a set that I dont like and wont wear.

On the other hand, if we buy a set which is more fashionable and something which I like, at least I can wear it to dinners. Thus, it’s of more use la.

Now that I thought of it, I seemed very frank and over presumptuous hor. Lol. Anyway, what I said are facts mah. MIL is easy-going too but still pretty conservative and economical. But I asked dearie before, he said he’s not going to let MIL pay 1 cent, he’s going to pay himself and treat it as buy for me loh. I asked whether he’s okie with that price, he’s okay.

So far I haven gotten any answers in forums about the pricing for the set of 4 dian jin they were given. I just want to know the “market price” mah so that I dont seem overly greedy nor humble myself too much. Yesterday I asked Kel about it. Imagine what answer she gave me? Ultimate! She dont have any 4 dian jin at all, because she dont like(yes, typical her). Instead, it’s being cashed instead. MUAHAHAHA. And her MIL was fine with it! How much? $9000. WOW!!! Hmm I think that’s including the bride price I think.

I told dearie the above, his face colour immediately turn GREEN you know! Then he said, “then then..you..also want to cash..cash it ah?” Damn funny lor his expression!

As for the bride price, I heard different pricing in forums. Some went as high as $8888, some only $888 as some parents claimed they’re not “selling their daughter”.

Now, this is then sensitive. Mummy and I are going to have a serious discussion.

Meanwhile, I need to DIY my angbao box soon.

I passed!!!!!

I dont know how I did it but I passed my AFP!!!!

So happy!!!!!!

Going to demand a treat from dearie.

Or a holiday.

Or a set of fantastic 4 dian jin.

=P

Any nice goldsmith shops with great prices do intro me!

=D

Amazing…awesome…wonderful..

Sigh. I’m spilling saliva all over the keyboard over the beauty of some pre-wedding photos I saw at forums, taken at Lijiang, Yunnan.

They are truly truly amazing leh. At first glance, one would have thought they are digital effects. But they’re not, other than the basic editing. The sceneries are truly that amazing…

More pictures of the couple at http://www.flickr.com/photos/veron_photobook/sets/72157616808183508/.

How? KUA ZHANG RIGHT?

I LOVE such pictures and I always thought it wont be possible to shoot such pictures because they will cost a bomb.

Guess what? Will 气死你 lor(I dont mean I 气 them, I 气 myself!!). The package from only S$2800. The price varies depending on the locations the package covers. I’m not sure how much pictures it includes but heck, each additional picture only S$10. TEN BUCKS ONLY!!!! Give me 100 additional photos anytime!

I feel like killing myself now.

It’s like 8 to 10 times in Singapore and the pictures weren’t even half as nice.

This kinda pictures wont even need digital design actually…perhaps minimal..to merge the pictures together.

I dont even feel like going to view my photoshoot pictures liao. Super anti-climax I tell you.

The ones from here are also nice. Taken from Shenzhen, also a good bargain.

I now have funny funny ideas in my head already.

And this song seems appropriate to soothe my broken heart now.

周杰倫 – 青花瓷 Nice lyrics…

What a slut

I just came across a topic in Flowerpod forum and I cant help posting it here.

Thread title: To Continue This Office Tyrst, Or Not?
Thread Starter: shinymint

I am 25 y/o and have a steady r/s of 5 yrs with my current bf. I started working 2 yrs ago after I graduated from uni and got to know a number of eligible guys from my workplace. Few of them are my expats customers station here in singapore. I got close with one of my customer, in fact too close. We had spend a night of passion in his condo when my bf was away on a 3 day overseas business trip. I must admit the s*x is great and he sure knows how to please a woman! I am still working together with this customer of mine as we are involved in the same project and will face each other — 8 hrs almost everyday. I kinda regret my actions and feel remorse after what I had did, but I am still feeling a bit ‘addicted’ to it and was actually thinking of getting it again with this customer of mine. Is this normal? I never thought I will get involved in this kind of situation.

(Btw, he’s divorced and a lot older than me. And I am having a healthy sexual relationship with my bf)

[Please do not judge my character in this forum, many thanks]


WHAT A JOKE RIGHT?

She dare to post this in a popular forum and still got the face to request people not to judge her.

The most amazing thing is, she even dare to post her f*ck face in her profile.

photo-82206

Is she that dumb? Or is that not her pic? Or she really think she is chio?

Face is so plump that I really feel like giving her face a few punches.

I understand that we all face temptations all the time. And since we’re not saints, I admit sometimes we do make mistakes. But the main reasons I’m feeling SO PARTICULARLY DISGUSTED with her are that

1) She actually said she’s addicted and she wanna try again
2) She mentioned nothing about chemistry or feelings with the new guy, just that “the sex is great!”
3) He is her client, for god’s sake!
4) Still dare to ask people not to judge her character by posting in a forum. Does she even have “face” or not?

I cant imagine she even wants to continue the tryst, despite the need to work with that client on a on-going project on top of the 5 years relationship with her bf.

What a slut.

I pity the boyfriend. I have an evil thought that I hope her boss and bf finds out. La la la.

Friday Night

*back track to friday* Haha Oh yes.

On last friday, I met up with G whom I haven seen for a long time. We had a fun chat over tea at Ochacha. Kinda missed the days where we sipped red wine. I realised I cant really drink beer or hard liquor nowadays. It’s not that I will get drunk with little, I always tried to control. The problem is, I wont get high with them and if I overshot, I will puke or give me butterflies in the stomach the next day.

After my meeting with G, I joined dearie and colleagues for clubbing at St James. Initially I wanted to go home because I was sneezing non-stop. But this husband of mine merely told me “then dont go home so late ok? I go St James awhile with them. =)”

Really asshole hor?

AND SO! Of course I tag along lah. Many people might be fooled with his innocent, guaiguai look, NOT ME! This heow man here gets flirty after alcohol and I’m there to MONITOR him. And anyway, I was being asked along. Since it’s a long time that most of the colleagues come together, and it’s a long time since I clubbed too, I joined them.

It’s literally on the way too since I met G at Raffles City and they’re just beside at Swiss hotel. There were around 50-60 of us..scary…and I dont know some of the colleagues because they are so new. Regardless of that, we had alot fun as alcohol loosens our inhibitions. Dancing, cheering, drinking.

Mel kept force me to 5-10 with him lah after losing 20+times to me in HK and he wanted revenge. When he approached me for the 5th time, I thought, nahzz, might as well got it over with.

And so he lost another 20+ times. Haha. But there was an improvement, because he won twice! Haha.

Most of them were pretty wild. Haha. They opened 3 big bombs(大炮) of Chivas, beer and martell bottles which waived the cover of the 50-60 of us. Totally crazy. I had moderate to drink. There were 2 cakes too, to advance celebrate Do’s birthday, which is today. Happy birthday.

Saw Cele, PS and LP there too at DF!! Didnt have much time to catch up with the latter 2 as they’re seated far away from me and in their own company. But real happy to see them especially LP. She looked as gorgeous as ever! In fact I think even better! All my colleagues were crowding around wanting an introduction. Lol. It’s the reason that scared her away so promptly I think. Humph!

We reached at 12midnight and I wanted to leave at around 2-3+am…however we stayed till 4+am because dearie drank. There were roadblocks right outside St James already. Thank god we reached home safely after dropping Dav at his home. The next morning, my stomach felt like there were a dozen butterflies dancing. I hate the feeling, it’s not as if I was high and drunk…I was so sober and what was with this hang-over feeling?? Arrghhhh.

I want my red wineeeeeeee.

Red wine kakkis please come outtttt. Wine bos!

(P/S Sorry that I didnt make it to the chalet. It’s just too far!)

Movies

My posts lag big time. Haha. Anyway, here are the chunks of movie reviews we had for the movies we’ve watched for the last 2 weeks.

Movie title: Unborn
Ratings: 2.5/5
Comments: Totally boring, meaningless and not scary at all

Movie title: Handsome Suit
Ratings: 4/5
Comments: It’s supposed to be a relaxing, funny, corny flick. We had our fair share of laughs. But I think the script writer is trying to portray his line of thought, that beauty lies skin deep. It’s true to a certain extent lah because I believe personality runs a longer mileage and deeper than the physical outer later of skin. However, the compatibility between the female and male lead is too wide. It’s nothing against the looks, the guy is simply too old for her. It’s like father and daughter. Love has no boundaries, yeah. So long both can click, lifestyle and frequency matches I guess.

Movie title: 17 again

Reviews: A funny, relaxing flick which also teaches us a lesson. In this story, Zac married his childhood sweetheart at the early age of 17 when she got pregnant and thus, threw away a bright future of doing what he really likes, like completing his uni or being a basketball NBA star. And all these years, he had lamented on the fact he had sacrificed all that for the family and blamed them for his failure in life. Eventually it created a sour relationship and his wife wanted a divorce.

Sometimes we keep think about something we’ve lost or did not treasure in the past. They haunt us like a leech, torment us with questions and imaginations like “what if”. But in real life, one shouldnt waste all their time thinking about all the “what if’s”, especially when something or someone cant make a difference already.

There’s no “what if”, nobody (other than god that is) knows about the “what if”. So what it really matters is NOW. Like what can be done NOW? What can be done NOW to make a DIFFERENCE? So make the best of what you have instead of staring at a closed door. As the saying goes, if you keep staring at a closed door, you will never notice other open doors waiting for you.

Sometimes, humans are just humans. We tend to forget WHY we’re with our partners/spouses and we forgot HOW we have come that far and all the things we have shared from time to time. There will be times when someone will be taken for granted and thus it takes a toll on the relationship. In this movie, Zac had a chance to replay his youth, which serves as a reminder on HOW he has come to love his wife, his kids and then he realised how badly he has taken them for granted. However we know that in real life, it’s not like the movies.

And so, we need reminders.

Sometimes, maintaining a relationship is also about how you remind yourselves time to time on important and significant matters. They act like fuels, recharging you when you’re actually running low on faith and chemistry.

Like, have you forgotten how your bf has always fetch you home from work most of the time? Just that lately he has forgotten or is unable to do so because of busy schedule?

Like, have you forgotten how your wife can light up your day with her smiles or with her jokes? Just that lately she is so busy looking after the kids that she hardly has the time to really sit down and have a chat with you?

So everyone needs a reminder from time to time. But of course, gentle ones and not super naggy ones. Sometimes girls can gently whine like, “last time you always buy me flowers and plan surprise getaways one leh, but so long dont have already….” Or guys can complain gently like, “last time you very gentle one leh, why lately more and more fierce liao?”

Lol.

Be careful of the tones and facial expressions though.

I dont know for other people but at least for me and dearie, everytime we send these “reminders” gently, it really brings back all the memories. We will suddenly “wake up” and realised…for e.g, “hmm yeah…lately I have been pretty temperamental…I must try to curb my temper/outbursts…” or “yeah…I quite long never bring her out for romantic dates already or fetch her from work…she must be tired coming back by herself for the whole of the last week”. And then honeymoon period will start all over again.

That’s why it seems our honeymoon period has not mellowed in any way. It’s still as refreshing and enchanting as it always have been. There will be slight differences of course, given that we have been together for more than 2 years.

Ultimately, it takes effort on both sides.

I had not planned to watch this when it looks like some giddy, childish flick for young teens who favour the pretty boy Zac Efron. However I changed my mind after I caught the trailer. It’s really funny and oh boy…Zac can act, quite well in fact. Literally caught me by surprise. Very very surprised. He’s more than a pretty face and I thought his performance was outstanding given his years of experience. Those tears weren’t eye drops for his eyes and nose turned red too. When the emotions ran deep in his eyes, its then when I noticed how boyishly handsome he is.

I think he will be a greater hit than Robert Pattinson in Twilight…whom I dont really find handsome leh…except in certain angles in Twilight where he’s heavily with make-up. He acts not bad but Zac acts better. Nice faces dont do a thing for me until they’re able to act. So spare me Jay la(he’s not even good-looking, but his songs are not bad though), or Fahrenheit(飞轮海). Gross.

Movie title: Taken
Ratings: 4.7/5
Reviews: A very simple plot which can be summarized in 1 sentence; A father who tried to rescue his kidnapped daughter. But the movie is so much more than that. Intense, thrilling, funny too. This is 1 show you shouldnt and cant miss.

Still have 2 more pending blog stuff to update..I’m sleepy…tomorrow I guess..
