The case of the moving belongings

6 07 2008

Was at the hair salon this afternoon, decided to trim + straighten + do treatment on my hair – which took, in all 4 hrs and involved 4 hair shampoos/rinses, one after each stage of the “ritual”.

Strangely, each time I returned from the shampoo, I found my belongings mysteriously moved to another seat and arranged in exactly the same way I had left it. After the 2nd or 3rd time, I was seriously spooked out.

Imagine you return home one day to find your belongings moved into another room.

Or return to your hotel and find yourself ushered to a different room, on a different floor … but with all your stuff there and arranged in the exact same order you left it in the morning.

Ugh … imagination running wild now.


Goodbye Fengshen, ‘allo Singapore!

27 06 2008

Escaped Typhoon Fengshen and am now safely back in Singapore! Phew!

Fengshen. Quite an eye opener! The Hong Kong authorities raised the typhoon warning just before midnight on Tuesday. I peeked out to see how bad it was but there was no wind, no rain … nothing.  Pfft, what a non-event, I thought. A Singaporean friend suggested taking a walk to experience the typhoon. Inside, we were chortling – all this fuss about nothing.

The next morning, I woke up to the sound of strong winds. Peeked out of the window and found that the umbrella, shoes and socks I had left in the balcony were … flying around. * HORROR *

Typhoon 1, Complacent Singaporean 0

On the bright side, I did get half a day off due to the Typhoon, and the warning was lifted in the late morning so I managed to catch my flight to Singapore. Win-win situation 🙂

Have a jam-packed schedule for the next few days, shall be heaps of fun … shall accumulate enough memories to last till my next trip to Singapore, I hope!

The Wierd Names Chronicles

14 06 2008

Recently I’ve come across folks with very … unconventional names.

Jeckyll (one wonders what his brother is called)

Okus (I can’t imagine how this came about)

and the killer ..

Virginial (hahaha …)

Bye bye baby … see you again soon

31 03 2008

The S.O. flew to London for a short visit … that has, too quickly, come to an end.

Was great having you here, babe! Here’s my favourite pic of you (kudos to the photographer, of course – otherwise known as ME!) 🙂


I miss you lots, even though …

1) You look like a lobster when you drink …

2) Occassionally need some sense “scorched” into you … 😛

3) You like to kachiau me when I am taking serious pictures!

<Tongue in cheek>

I know we’ll have a great life together, babe. Just you and me. Cheers to that 🙂

Worry about you

4 01 2008

I love this song. Unfortunately, WordPress doesn’t support Imeem, but found a workaround  🙂

Bye bye baby.
Don’t be long.
I’ll worry about you while you’re gone.

Bye bye baby.
Don’t be long.
I’ll worry about you while you’re gone.

I’ll think of you in my dreams.
You’ll never know just what you mean to me…..
….to me.

I’ll think of you night and day.
I’ll never know just what you meant to say….
….to say.

Sister of the groom?

3 12 2007

My brother is vain.

Not only did he hire an expensive photographer for his wedding, he also rented a VW convertible (2 seater, of course!), which he plans to drive for the wedding o.O. Needless to say, my parents are horrified. LOL. But it should be fun!

 Hmmm, having an identity crisis here!

Sister of the bride = part of the “jie mei” gang.

Brother of the groom = part of the “xiong di” gang.

So …. sister of the groom = ???

The Time Traveler’s Wife

2 12 2007

Recently re-read The Time Traveler’s Wife. It’s a love story about a man with a disorder known as “Chrono-Displacement” that causes him to unpredictably time travel; and his wife, who met her time-travelling future husband when she was a child of six and he an adult (he was time travelling into the past).

It’s so sweet that their love story lasted so many decades – to know and love your husband from the age of six … and wait for him till time “catches up” and your paths meet again … takes a lot of patience and faith.

The husband gave the list of his visits to his wife during one of their early encounters, so she can expect his visits and wait for him. Oh, the anticipation it would have caused her. Every date signifying an event to look forward to.

I know the dates I will see the Significant Other again (Yes, I am anal and have booked my air tickets for visits up to February). He knows all these dates, no doubt he will be waiting for me …. patiently. And I shall look forward to these visits too.

I am the time traveller now.
