“Better than a Pyschic” By Mercedes

The House Bunny (2008)
I love the movie because it never fails to make me laugh no matter how many times I’ve watched it. Kinda bimbo I know. I love the soundtrack too!

But I cant seem to find any free download of the song online. When I tried to find the soundtrack so that I can buy the whole damned album, I cant find it too! The closest I found is the link to listen to it, at http://www.imeem.com/generaltomfoolery/music/tENRKSL0/mercedes-better-than-a-psychic/. It’s like they never release the soundtrack at all! Need so exclusive or not? Fine lor…at most I open that link whenever I want to listen…

Initially I didnt even what’s the song title. I just knew it was playing during the movie when Shelly dances with the old folks at the nursing home. I had asked dearie to search the song title for me but he said cant find. But when I tried to find, I can find it lor. Duhz! He’s really making me more and more pissed lately, by accumulating numerous minor things into 1 big mountain as time goes by. Knowing him, he wont help me find one lor. Put it this way, he will help to find lah but he doesnt put his heart into finding it. Because everything I asked him to do something, he either made a blunder of it, else he dont get it done.

How I miss those days when I’m younger and has suitors. They’re always so sweet and always trying to make my day with little little things. But they dont know those little acts meant so much to me. What I mentioned, what I got. No matter is music, books or dvd. They were delivered or courier-ed right to my doorstep. And take note I only mentioned about stuff I love which are difficult to find, like collectibles. They are not expensive or branded stuff. So they probably dont cost alot but alot of time and effort are needed to find them. And I appreciate them very much.

Yeah. Wake up lah I know. I’m a married, fat, grumpy, wrinkly Lao Char Bor now. Nobody loves me anymoreeeee. Boowoo!

Sigh….Lately we quarreled alot. It’s all about my displeasures with him. They’re small stuff but they were accumulating…and I had enough… Despite how I tried to act normal, I’m not happy with him. And he doesnt seem to give a shit. =(

Why are all the Saggis like that?

I really need some time alone these few days.


“Just Married” Carplates, Wedding Cakes, Videography

These “Just Married” Carplates are SO CUTE! I cant make up my mind which to choose! Give me some suggestions will you? They’re to go with a white beetle(volkswagon).

Precious Moment. Classy and Elegant

Pinky and sweet

Simple and Cool

Cute, Cartoony.

Howwwwww?? Dont have a specific price yet because haven determine the delivery method. But they generally costs around the same, $65.

Was browsing for some Wedding Cakes. Not that I have decided to have 1…just find that they’re so nice and pretty! Compliments from Cherylshuen. Nice and pretty as they come, not cheap manz as they’re mostly fondant cakes.




With cupcakes

Cute baby-1year-old cake

Guo Da Li(GDL) fondant cakes with cupcakes! SOoooOo cute! $30+ per box.

Expensive right? 20 boxes will costs $600 liao! Normal GDL cake box costs between $8.90-$18.90 only. I guess this is more for the rich like Erica. =P

Normal fondant cakes will costs above $100 and for Cherylshuen, they costs at least $300 and above. Because fondant is not easily mastered. Can see that her artwork is generally better than other patissieries. The Patissier also have wonderful cakes but even steeper pricing. But so far haven heard reviews about their cakes perhaps they’re of higher end.

Some frequently mentioned names are

1) Pine Gardens.
Too bad website is under construction. It’s known to be cheap and good for both wedding cakes and GDL cakes.

2) Choz Cakes
Take note this is not “Chocz” hor.

3) CakeAvenue

4) Cupcakedivinity
Famous for their cupcakes. Home-based but not especially cheap.

Cupcakes are getting popular because they’re of less hassle(no need to cut). Mini ones cost around $1.50 each while standard ones costs around $2.50 each. Fondant or premium cupcakes will costs $3.50 and above each.

For the wedding cake/cupcakes, I’m quite undecided lah because they will add up to around $500 if I have to cater for all guests. Meanwhile I’m worried about nobody eating and it will be a waste(of my money too).

I had actually booked my videographer, Simon as recommended by NewImage, my bridal studio(BS). However, I feel that Tr(Huey’s videographer) have nicer work and better pricing. I will engage her instead. Capio told me I have to pay the forfeited deposit of $200 because I had cancelled at this last minute(within 3 months). I remembered she told me “it’s confirmed” but she has never request me for deposit. And I never know I have to forfeit some sort of deposit if I cancelled. She only added to my total bill where balance of the VG charge is to be collected on the day before the actual day. And the thing is, when I asked her how much deposit she handed over, she refused to answer me and said she will negotiate with Simon instead. After few hours then she called me again, quoting me $200.

Somehow I feel that amount goes into her pocket or the BS’s pocket lor. Haiz…but I still prefer to have Tr instead. The videography skills are pretty on par but Tracy uses MAC for editing as well as the express highlights. Her montage is much better for Simon’s one is pretty old-fashioned. Perhaps he uses outdated software.

Initially was pretty happy that I can cut some costs(even including the forfeited deposit) as Tr charges cheaper because she is a freelancer. However when I thought of my topping up of pictures totaling $1500, I sianz 1/2. Not to mention I haven source for red wine yet. Arrghhhhh!

We have already prepared to make a loss for the banquet. Not that we will complain lah because the banquet is something which we, or rather I (=P), choose to have. I will be very very happy if 100% turn up. Somehow I feel, if dont have a customary banquet, it doesnt feel like we REALLY got married. Like..dont have that gan jue…Weird huh me~ Anyway, I feel it’s nice to have our friends together with us on our big day to share our happiness and joy. Dearie definitely dont think so; he finds it very troublesome. =P

Plus there is a particular kind of people on Earth who will last minute tua one la without a good reason (say want to come but never come). Let’s see who will they be after the banquet. =P Dont say I mean lor but I feel what goes around comes around. They will understand the feeling when it’s their turn to hold a banquet. Maybe that’s why I feel most of these people are people who already held banquets? They thought it’s no way these karma can come back again? =P

Huey told me to estimate a 10%. For someone as kind and have so many friends as her also said 10%. I think I have to estimate 20% liao. Haha.

I mean, still, I will be happy with the people who attended as well as their angbaos lah but I feel we most probably will make a loss. Therefore if I have to add wedding cakes, cupcakes, red wine all that, it will be a even bigger expense. Hmm…I will try to source for good pricing…but if cant find, then too bad loh. At least we did try to find and hold a banquet.

Argghhhh still very irritated with the extra $200 which Capio exploited of me. Another problem awaiting me is that Father-in-law is bandang about black colour jackets and refused to wear one. Capio said they only have dark blue with stripes other than black. I have a feeling FIL wont like it one. So we have to rent or make another suit for him, incurring another few hundred. And thing is, he seldom wear suits one as he’s retiring soon. I wonder should we get the suit in dearie’s size(since dearie can wear suits to meet clients) but lend FIL to wear. But wonder will he mind? Even if he dont mind, I feel grey dont suit dearie leh. I dont even dare to think of brown.

Haiz…all are money…what a headache.

Home sweet home finally

Lately I’ve been real lax at updating my blogs. Here’s some overdue movie reviews.

Movie title: Conspiracy
Ratings: 3.5/5
Comments: Erm…kinda like “Eagle Eye” except less dramatic but exaggerating all the same. I asked dearie before whether it’s really possible for a computer to really act like a human, whereby the artificial intelligence is so great that it can analyze, decide, and implement all by itself. Dearie said it’s actually possible. I think so too. The lazier we humans get, the more info we feed the computer, the more control it will have. Ultimately, we must be careful not to let it override us.

Movie title: Angels & Demons
Ratings: 4/5
Comments: I’m actually not very keen on this movie till I saw Ser’s ratings. She gave 9.5/10. WOAH! I find it pretty exciting and interesting but erm, the whole movie seemed so rushed and very very simplified. It’s not intriguing enough though the plot is still engaging. I haven read the book but Ser commented the movie was a far cry from the book.

Not going to buy anymore books already since I have a bulk which I haven finished. Simply no time!

Sad to say, lately, work has not been smoothly. Mishaps again and again, I haven been this suay for quite long. I probably overreacted. Fortunately, things have quieted down and were soothed over.

Some good news then.

We have finally secured our preferred pricing for our “dream house” today by submitting the deposit by cheque. The kind seller has agreed to sell $5k below valuation. But it’s still not cheap lor to us. Factored in the downpayment, agents’ commission, stamp duty, reno and all…..it will be a 6 digit figure. =( I wont be able to really splurge for some time.

Yesterday the sellers were not around when we had our 2nd viewing as they were overseas. That’s why their agent was being so emphatic about the pricing. I feel the sellers were pretty chin chai one, especially when their valuation is going to expire in 9days. Which pretty much means, the unit was on sale for the past few months but so far no deals were closed.

I’m actually quite surprised that the seller agreed to sell under valuation because I had a feeling that the seller’s stupid agent was adamant to sell at the valuation price or higher. Yesterday we went for the second viewing and had made an offer. Oh manz, I simply cant stand the seller’s agent’s cocky attitude about how popular this unit is and so many people will be snatching this unit bla bla bla and how a previous party has offered $5K above valuation. Yayaya, then why dont you sell? “Oh because that time this unit just out of market and the seller wants to wait.”

He was soooo sure that the seller will laughed at our below valuation offer. His words still ringed in my ears. “NEVER, have I ever sell any units below valuation. Haha. This unit is…bla bla..(went to say the pros of the unit)..so many people will want to buy it if I just sell it AT the valuation price!”

I think he thought we will offer valuation price instead of below. Hello..now is buyer’s market okie~ Dont you even know this fact? Many are buying below valuation, not only us.

Of course I know that this unit is good, else we wouldnt have expressed our interest. But as I said, the price is only reasonable. However, it’s considered pretty steep for a unit in Yewtee. For that price, we can get a 5room already.

And the main reason why he’s so cocky and attitude was because our agent not familiar with the paperwork la. Everything she asked him as though she was a newbie. Wah lau damn paiseh and su1 seh3. No wonder the seller’s agent sounded so cocky and condescending to her. We’re surprised she’s not as experienced as we thought. And she totally dont know how to negotiate and bargain. *faintz* End up I have to do my own negotiation. Duhz. And I thought my working hours were over.

Dearie and mummy were not a big help lor. Dearie was mostly silent, probably already thinking on the renovations which he’s going to implement, especially on how to remove the ugly railings built by HDB.

I appreciated Mummy’s suggestions lah but most of the times, she made me very embarrassed with her ridiculous demands. Like, requesting the owner to hack away the whole kitchen for us just because we said we’re going to reno the kitchen. *faints* But even so, I was very angry when the seller’s agent was condescending to her too. We’re the buyers okie. Even my agent diam diam and dare not say anything, allowing him to talk loudy at us. TMD! Immediately I became damn “hot” and started to refute his reasons for the higher pricing.

The unit has his pros, thus he has his reasons for jacking up the price. But I also have my own reasons, the cons of the unit, for lowering the price of the unit.

First off, I jeered at his use of the unit as “Design and Built”. (I’m usually not that attitude but this was because he made me angry when he jeered my mum first)

Who cares about the “design and built”?

My own unit is also DESIGN and BUILT. Specially designed by professional designers where right after you stepped into the house, it will be the dining room and kitchen. And then a hallway which leads to the rooms and lastly, the living room right deep inside. For privacy.

BUT many people who came my house has commented my house got a very weird shape and some superstitious aunties even commented it’s bad fengsui when the living room is not infront.

Therefore, SO WHAT about Design & Built? It doesnt mean a thing to me. I must LIKE the design else it literally has zero value.

Immediately, the seller’s agent’s face darkened and he shut up.

Next up, he mentioned the existing wooden doors were of fine wood which I can continue to use or else sell away. Crazy. He seriously think I so free to help him sell away these doors and machaim so easy like that. And wood? Please lah. “To each his own.” I told him. You guys might like wood, BUT I DONT LIKE. In fact, I will hack them all away and it’s additional cost and trouble for me.

I highlighted a few more major bad points and when I finally saw his air of attitude toned down(otherwise he damn super yaya-papaya you know!), I softened my tone. And said, “we’re having our customary in AUG and we would very much to have our house by next year. You must have been tired trying to sell this house till the valuation is in the midst of expiration and so are we. We too, are tired after viewing more than 10 houses. We are also sincere to buy this flat especially when it’s near my mum’s house. But we hope you can negotiate with the owner for the pricing as we dont have CPF nor any grant.

This was where he started to ask why and my stupid agent blurted out all the info which I dont want him to know. Didnt help nevermind, still sabotage. I nearly want to strangle her.

I was very very pissed because she has disclosed very personal info to the seller’s agent, which is how much we earn! We were frank with her because she’s our agent. But we dont know she’s that frank to go tell the seller’s agent. I know she bears no evil intention but she’s really too “straight” and “innocent” liao lah. I swear smoke came out from my head when she blurted out. Sigh. I swear the seller’s agent’s eyes sparkle when he knew the main reason why we got no grant and why we have to take resale flats. Zhen shi qi si wo le! It’s more difficult to bargain!

Even if he had asked why, I can come up with a few reasons to push him off. I was pretty pissed lah. Maybe so much so my agent was afraid to call me today to inform us of the good news nor accompany us to submit the cheque. She only called dearie. We know nuts about property paperwork stuff and had to listen to that seller’s agent for whatever he said. Duhz…then I dont know I pay commission to my own agent for what, when she cant offer help when I needed her most. Really feel like cutting her commission. You know now, property agents’ commission can be negotiated. But suan le lah, she brought us view quite a few flats. Will pay for her sincerity.

Thank god, the seller is very chin chai and had agreed to our price, though dearie and me were sure their agent must have tried to pyscho him to squeeze us for higher price. I think he must have been very sian and wants to sell the unit ASAP.

The seller’s agent was more toned down already today when we submitted cheque to him though he was still bragging about what a good deal we got and how good is this unit.

Damn funny, when he was talking, I rolled my eyes and tossed a “buay tahan” look at dearie and his face actually mirrored mine. Haha. Really feel like asking that agent to shut up because it doesnt matter anymore.

Our agent only called dearie and even ask dearie to apologise to me. K lah. I might have overreacted but it’s also good if she can learn this lesson loh. Common…she’s a property agent mah. She must learn how to be in control of the conversation and situation especially when she’s the buyer’s agent. Buyers is always bigger. And I hope she familiarize herself with the paper work and procedures lah. Everything is I check or I ask. Then also dont know how to negotiate or bargain. Really no confidence in her lo. Soft soft like that, kanna eaten lah.

God bless us all!!

It might just be our dream home

I’m starting to get excited because there is a 99% chance that we have found the perfect flat which is going to be our home sweet home. It’s located right behind my current house, on the hilltop at blk 641. Coincidentally, it’s just the neighbour block of Mummy’s best friend, Ah Guat Auntie. We’re still remaining as neighbours after all since our last home at Clementi. =)

Hmm…I’ve lost count of how many units we viewed… I guess it will be 10odd. Dearie is very very picky in regards to finding his dream home and food-wise. All other areas, he’s pretty chin chai. Actually we saw a few good units, but either they’re low level(what a pity) or else they’re not near MRT. Kinda ironic as I took cab most of the time but I really feel very handicap if I dont stay near mrt because I’m a direction idiot. And have been staying near MRT for as long as I remembered.

Dearie bought his buddy A to view the 4 room design-and-built unit too, along the corridor and not the interior. He has positive comments too.

1) High floor
2) 10-15mins walk to MRT (my speed;slow)
3) Fully sheltered to MRT (just like my current home)
4) Carpark at basement with lift
5) Unblocked view (that feeling is awesome!)
(okie lah..not as if it’s a super super nice view…but it’s refreshing once in a while to NOT look out of the window and see MRT tracks or HDB buildings. =)
6) Layout pretty squarish
7) Not much built-in fixtures. Only need to change the doors and railings, repaint etc. I remembered the flooring is quite okie.

1) it’s not big, around 100sqm
2) Master-room not especially big (the size of a common room) =(
3) Living room not as big as I wished, but will do
4) 11-12 years old house

The price: It’s only reasonable, or slightly better than reasonable. Gonna nego later. Many owners of other units at Yewtee and CCK were asking alot more than they’re really worth, in my opinion.

Hai yo…I reallllllyyy shouldnt have go see Huey’s house before I bought mine. It makes me tend to compare between them. =( But what can I do? Who asks us not applicable for new flats? Haiz. Even A got grant for his resale flat. We got nothing, absolutely nothing. Dearie is being very sour about it but I told him to kan kai yi dian lor.

Went temple and we got a great DA4 JI2 lot for this unit. =) Hope everything goes well.

Happy birthdays!

I really wish to hit the pillows now but I cant, technically, as my stomach is churning all the beer, martell and mee rebus like a typhoon. Arghh!

I really cant drink anymore. =( Sad It’s like, I will experience discomfort if I drank slightly more than 2 glasses…what the…..right? I knew just now I drank not little and it’s also not alot as I’m sober. There are just some giddiness for awhile. *yawn* There’s no way I’m able to sleep with a churning stomach and I came up here to blog. Especially when pipi is loading so slowly. Haiz. Sometimes very fast, sometimes very slow. Damn emo lah.

We got together today at a pub not worth mentioning at boat quay in celebration of Christ’s belated and J’s advance birthday celebration. It’s really quite difficult for all to meet due to our work and relationship commitments. However we still try! Gave Christ some skincare product while J, a renoma wallet. We shared the gifts.

I’m realllllyyy very lazy. I let the pictures do the talking.

This time, I took alot of candid shots! We had drinking games, namely 7,8,9, dice bluff and animal games. C kept want to play 7,8,9 game, think she thirsty for drinks. But today few are drinking. C’s hubby, S kept push to C to drink. T’s bf pushed to her to drink. Christ cant drink because lately she had food poisoning so mostly T, J and I drank for her. Xiong~ =.=

It’s obvious from the pictures the drinks werent very dilute lor. I actually drank 1 and a half rock glass of neat Martell. *faintzz* And hor I’ve became tanner ever since that swim few days ago. Sad leh..haiz..have to start applying whitening lotion again. I hate it when my hubby is fairer than me. =P

By the way….now I realised why G only drinks red wine and dare not drink alot of beer and hard liquor. I guess she has the same situation as me. J said he also has that, and we both think it’s due to aging. That’s very sad manz! I dont want to drink so much liao lah. Very xin ku!

Happy birthday Christ and J.
2 more happy birthdays to Nic and Sha!

=( I dont like water

I’m still having bodyache now, ever since I went swimming with dearie on Monday at our nearby Yewtee Sports Complex. Rather than purely nua-ing in the water like last time, I’m proud to say that I really did SWIM this time round. Haha. Although it’s not a lot….I did exerted some strength. Aiya..I haven swim in years already….and it’s hard you know~ We went and stayed in the wave pool for awhile when the waves were on and left to swim the normal pool on our own after it ended.

As I did not have any goggles, I was afraid to knock into the wall. Hence I swam along the longer side of the pool(the length) and happily executing my “deformed” froggie style. I swam and swam, trying to prolong my usual 5-times-combo(swim 5 strokes and stop) for as long as I can. When I can continue no more after around 10times-combo(my new break through), I finally stopped abruptly midway, hoping to catch my breath normally. What shocked me was that my feet couldnt touch the ground!! Immediately I panicked and sunk like a ship, gobbling some water in the process, forgetting the fact that actually I can swim myself to save my life!

Thank god dearie was actually silently behind me and he scooped me up after 1 mouthful of water. I hung onto him tightly like a Koala bear clutching a tree, coughing off my lungs. Despite it being a very fast rescue in like 5 seconds, it’s enough to scare me tremendously. =~( Because it reminded me how I almost drowned when I was around 8years old. Except it was a more tedious process of around 10seconds as nobody was there to save me. I merely struggled and attempted to anyhow-swim and wedged myself towards the edge of the pool. Damn the relief swimming instructor who failed to look after me. It was real terrifying..and thats why till now I have phobia of water.

As soon as Dearie scooped me up, I noticed few pairs of eyes were staring at me. I wondered which could be more of the humiliating reasons; a girl swimming to the middle of the pool and attempt to drown herself or the fact that she’s drowning at a pretty short height of maybe, 1.6m? 1.6m is a height ENOUGH to drown me already, given how short I am. Don’t even need a 1.8m. Laugh lah. Laugh lor.

I dont know I’m drowning at which height of the pool, especially when I was stupidly ignorant of the fact that the middle of the pool was the deepest instead of the furthest end. And the fact that I myself SWAM to the middle of the pool and ATTEMPTED to DROWN myself was so impossibly ironic and unbearably embarrassing, that I hid my head in dearie’s shoulder like an ostrich, not daring to meet any more quizzing eyes.

*burst into tears*

I haven been SO embarrassed for a long long time!!!!

*Cries harder*

And you know what dearie told me?

He said he’s feeling a sense of deja vu when he “hero saves the beauty(ying1 xiong2 jiu4 mei3)” and said he felt it’s all very romantic. And he asked me if I felt the same.

My face turned distorted.

Only a MAN like him will feel it’s romantic when his wife is, you know, DROWNING.

I bet he will feel it’s even more romantic if he performed CPR on me.

Heng it’s not to that extent. I will be embarrassed to death first before my breathing stops.
