I will be back next week

3 lil' thoughts
Dear friends,

Thanks for dropping by my little world of thoughts.

I am sorry; I am not able to write any post for these few days. I am preparing for exam that falls on Sat, 29th.

I have broken my personal record by taking 3 days of leave in a row. And yet, spending time checking emails 4 times a day, seeing 20 emails each time, needless to say the time to reply and scratch head to solve the problems, and phone calls every other hour.

Age is catching up, the more I study, the more I forget. Hehehe.. it’s not really a good sign.

Anyway, wish me luck. I can’t wait to complete the exam. The very first thing I would do is to library and get some novels. I am dying, trembling, shaking of novels addiction. Hehehe…

Back to revision….

The Knot Wedding Shop

0 lil' thoughts
This is a sponsored post

One of the reason I realized I am getting older, is when I receive wedding invitations from friends, especially high school friends. Then you start to wonder, “gosh, I have reached the marriageable age”. This word is often used by my mom, “marriageable”. I heard from girl friends that are married, that there is tons of preparation to be done for the big day, some prepared for as long as 2 years! Given a chance, I would like to have one simple reception by the beach, and off to honeymoon in my dreamland. That, for me is a perfect wedding. :-)

Well, many people would tell me, wedding is once-in-a-lifetime kind of event, so we have to prepare well, and live with no regrets. So, let’s talk a bit about my dream wedding. I’ll engage The Knot Wedding Shop for unique wedding favor ideas.

I am one lazy girl when it comes to hassles. So, one-stop shop like The Knot Wedding Shop solves my headache. They offer brides-to-be a 24-hour accessibility, so if you can’t contain your excitement being a bride, they are round the clock for you. :-)

The Knot Wedding Shop offers you services starting from the day you say “yes” to the proposal. They plan for your ceremonies, 1000 over wedding supplies from candles, guestbook, wedding postage, magazines and music, jewelry & accessories for men and women, bridesmaid gifts, groomsman gifts, parent’s gifts, cakes, candles, flowers, glasses and the list goes on and on.

Now I know why such long preparation needs to be done. So many things! Luckily The Knot Wedding Shop is to the rescue. :-)

Pain pain please go away....

7 lil' thoughts
My lower back started aching more than a week ago, but I ignored it. Then it became worse and I couldn’t walk for long, sit for long nor stand for long. Each time, I have to bend forward, stretch a bit and feel better.

On Monday, because I couldn’t bear the pain, I went to the Chinese Sinsei I saw when I “injured” my arm few months back. After the acupuncture, “tui-na” and “suction-dunno-wat”, I somehow felt better.

Till Tuesday, when it was time to knock off, I felt exhausted. The pain came back.

On Wednesday morning, when I woke up as usual, the pain was terrible. I need to lie down. Because Chinese sinsei MC and consultation fees are not covered by the company, I have to go to GP to get MC. He gave me 2 days.

It was fine on Wednesday, coz I grabbed the opportunity to do some revision. Exam is just around the corner. But I studied for 2 hours, and got to lie down for 4. :-(

On Thursday, while lying in the bed, the pain came back with much intensity. No choice, I have to go to another Chinese sinsei who specialized in “tui-na”. Wow… I should have gone to him in the first place. He used his elbow to “massage” and “unblocked” my vessels.. and I felt so great it last for few days.

Now, I still have slight pain. Probably due to the visit to the old folks home, sponsored by the company or probably due to the 2 hours journey I took yesterday to the West for facial.

Today, I must make it a point to lie down more.

While recuperating, I do not think I would be facing the computer to blog. I’ll be back. Meanwhile, hope my back recover faster. :-)

Select 5 people to tag:
Err... I do not know who to tag coz I do not want to re-tag most blogger friends. So, if you want to do this tag, drop me a line. Hehehe...

What were you doing 10 years ago?
Back in 1997, I was in Lower 6. Don’t really remember what exactly I was doing, but I remember very well, Princess Diana died on the night I accepted my first love. Hahaha… the rest is history, but those were memories.

What were you doing 1 year ago?
Last year, I just changed job from the previous worked-till-I-have-no-life company. Started a brand new life here in Rayco, given a brand new VAIO laptop for mobilization. You may think given laptop and handphone not really considered as having life, but trust me, having no life means you have to be in the office until everyone knocked off, and still be there working at past 3am, called back to office on X’mas eve and worked till the following afternoon, no holidays for you, no weekends AND YET get paid like those slackers!

Five snacks you enjoy
Because I am kind of conscious of my weight and the extra layers forming at tummy, I do not really snack. I have gained some weight ever since I joined current company. Good life lah katakan. But because of the gastric problem, I have to eat. FYI, I am not suffering from anorexia (think you can see from my pics that I am not).

So, if I snack, my fave would be (BEWARE! They are all SINFUL food):

1) Potato chips
2) Chocolates
3) Ice cream
4) Desserts
5) Cheese!!!

Five songs that you know all the lyrics.
All Malay Songs (popular during high school era):

1) Teringin by Shima
2) Gerimis Mengundan by Slam
3) Bukan Niat Membalas Derita by Slam
4) Pahit Akan Manis Akhirnya by Ukays
5) Di Persimpang Dilema by Nora

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire
Please refer to the tag If I have a $1 Million....

Five bad habits
1) I laugh out REAL LOUD that you may feel shocked. My bro used to say “the whole village can hear my laughter”. Now my boss says “the whole factory can hear my laughter”.

2) I am a pessimist; always think of the bad side of EVERYTHING.

3) Love to make compulsive purchases. And I want my purchases VERY FAST!

4) I get very irritated, annoyed and I’ll show one kind of face when I hear kids cry out loud and make lots of noise. I know, I am cruel, heartless, whatever you name it. I just like to play with them, not to hear them shout on top of their lungs. :-(

5) Pick on food. Though I am not that fussy about food, but I DO NOT eat food that I DO NOT LIKE, eg. beehoon in soup though I eat fried beehoon, seaweed in soup though I like to munch on them. Hahaha….

Five things you like doing (In no particular sequence :-p)

1) Reading
2) Laughing
3) Traveling
4) Pigging
5) Spending time with him

Five things you would never wear again

1) Monthly disposable contact lens. Even if they are the most expensive ones, they irritate my eyes and caused infection. Now, I wear daily disposable, as and when needed.

2) My first pair of glasses. God, it was HUGE, covered half my face. :-p

3) School shoes. They were ugly.

4) The shoe I bought in Italy. It caused me PAIN! Not just ordinary PAIN, but BITING PAIN!!

5) What else ah?

Five favourite toys.
Not really into toys coz I am sucks in keeping them, so can only list 3.… :-p

1) Barbie. Unfortunately I did not own any, until on my uni graduation day in Aug’02, when my then housemate, Jeannie gave me one. It was a picnic Barbie. :-) My one dream fulfilled.

2) Bear. In my uni days, I slept with a brown bear given by someone then-special. Ever since started working, I do not have any particular feeling towards them. The last bear received was from TW who had one holding a bouquet of fresh roses sent to my home for my birthday in 2004.

3) Batu seremban. Is it considered a toy? Anyone remember them? If not mistaken, there were ways to play it, especially the 6th step. :-p

Innovative Learning

Our beloved Princess has just turned 4 this year and started school. Ever since she goes to school, she started to speak fluent Chinese. But like any other kids, she is very playful, and do not like to sit still to do her homework. It was a wonder however, that she managed to score more than 90 in most of her papers. :-P

Because she is not motivated to learn more and not guided because parents are working, Score Learning centers can help to make significant academic progress in an innovative tutoring environment.

Score, the Innovative Tutor helps students (and of course shared their parents’ burden) to achieve their goals and reach their academic potential in math, reading, spelling and writing. Their programs include personal academic coaching, positive reinforcement, and a customized curriculum that adapts to each child's pace and learning needs.

Boat Ride For Ah Tat's Farewell

1 lil' thoughts
Ah Tat is leaving Sg on 30th Sep, back to KL for good. I do not really have time to meet him up when he is in Sg. Shopped a few times this half a year, and another blink, he will be gone, leaving me alone in Sg again. 2 years ago, Jenny left me, now Ah Tat’s turn. But this time is slightly different. My younger bro and gf is here. I am not that lonely like I used to be. :-)

We are having a farewell outing with him on 29th Sep, after I finished my exam. Swee Wai booked the boat through her company. The boat ride actually starts from 9am to 5pm, but because my exam ends at 1pm, we’ll board only at 2pm. I supposed 3 hours is good enough. I am not sure, this is the first time I go on a boat. Last time, I took ferry to Batam every week for work. Not sure if I’ll be down with seasick. Hahaha….

Well, Swee Wai will bring fiancé, my bro and gf will confirm later, Ah Tat and me the lone ranger. I’ll take pictures and post here, if no seasick! **crossing my fingers**

Home Improvement

3 lil' thoughts

This is a sponsored post

For more than thirty six years Anglian has been renowned amongst UK homeowners as the place to go for high quality home improvements.

I think this Home Improvement site is good for Auntie Serene if she wants to do some windows replacement at home. Hehe.. probably my room’s windows. :-p I am looking forward to have our windows with double glazing replaced.

Exam is around the corner

3 lil' thoughts
Last night was the last class. Mr. Too gave us tips for exam. I start to have exam fever. There are so many things need to be memorized! And I think age is catching up, the brain memory is used up. Haha…

Choon Tee brought glutinous rice and cup cakes to class. Patrick paid for the pizzas Mr. Too ordered and brought some snacks.

Our bond is stronger in this class. When I took Green Belt, we didn’t really “connect” this way. And so sad, there is no never-ending banquet in the world. Though I do not wish to go classes anymore, I feel sad losing this “commitment”.

All in all, we attended 144 hours of lecture. In which, I think I missed 25 hours! Haha… luckily, still able to meet the 75% attendance requirement, and can sit for exam. :-p

Wish me luck, 23 days to go……

Online Shopping

0 lil' thoughts
Holiday season is just a few months away. Before you know it, it’s Raya Puasa, Deepavali, Halloween, Thanksgiving…. and it’s time to do some online shopping again.

For mom, I’ll get something from Florist. Mom loves flowers, especially those sent to her, as a surprise! Normally we send carnations for Mother’s Day, perhaps it’s time for a change. :-) Lilies, roses, daisies are among the choices.

How about a good bag for sis from Ebags. There are a varieties of bags, ie. designers, totes, leathers and many more.

Because elder princess loves to read, books in BooksAMillion is definitely the best choice. They are having a books clearance sale that offers savings up to 80%. :-)

Last but not least, something for our dear younger princess. Disney Shopping offers wide range of Disney products, including great selections of collectibles, home décor, clothing toys, top-selling Mini Bean Bags, and more. From Mickey to Pooh, Princesses to Buzz Lightyear, you're sure to find your favorite characters
