currently all too obsessed with blog hopping and d/l songs now to blog properly but here are the simplified thoughts of e night:
i finally watched Infernal Affairs 1 and damn it's so good, my heart was all pounding at the tense moments.
never felt like that in a movie: only when i'm trying to win an auction on ebay. heh.
Andy lau is SO hot and Anthony wong is a great actor. sad ending.
and what's with all this sex talk going around me? this entry is with no reference to anyone!
i think.... i'm just getting older, & ppl around me are just not afraid to talk about the issues in life.
it's becoming all like Sex & the City.

*'You don't have to be rich to be called high-class. Be confident in yourself. We're all high-class.'
Taiwanese President Chen Shui-bian on self-professed socialite Hsu Chun-mei.
just got back from freezing my toes @ chinatown. had dinner with clement & friends.
nice peeps & good company to help me polish up my cantonese and mandarin.
though i feel so bad...cos everytime clement will pay for my food!
as much as it's nice of him, i just really feel very embarassed...cos i'm not that kind of girl who expects a guy to pay for everything, just because i am a girl!
oh well, guess all i can say now is i'm thankful for friends like him. =)

oh. was walking home when this half-drunk angmoh asked "how are you?"
being polite, i just said "good, but it's freezing cold!" and continued walking.
he then starts to trail behind me and asks "so where do you live?"
me, still walking & not looking at him... "oh nah, just visiting some friends"
drunkard:"oh, i'm walking the same way too......"

me: ignores him.
drunkard:"oh wait, can i light up my cigarette?"
me: "go ahead"
drunkard: "you want a smoke?"
me: "no thanks, i dont smoke."

i was still walking as this unwanted conversation went on!
a couple walks past me and the women mouths "just run!"
i only managed to give them a strained smile.

drunkard: " excuse me, that's a nice bag"
me: silence
drunkard: "excuse me.."
me: crosses the road to the other side, tried to walk at a faster pace in my heels & looking out from the corner of my eye.

i still insist that i live on a safe street, compared to the rest of dodgy london.

nice pic by ignoramus!
i wanna LC-A.
then again i want a lot of other things too.

Friday, February 27, 2004

got my morning call to wake up....all the way from a little tropical island! thank you. =)
heh. anyway, lazed in bed & chatted till i had to get off the phone. then i got another call! a friend's asking me if i want to work behind the bar @ some club tomorrow night at Windsor!! it's apparently some Huge event and the royal family will be there!

ah ah! i want i want i want!!!!
crossing my fingers and toes that they will still need help.
off to shower now, going to raid Portobello market
i have been ignoring my school work, d/l and watching episodes after episodes of sex & the city..... while my butt grows bigger by the day?
as of's 3.37am and Finally, after weeks of patient d/l i've got the dvd version of Secretary on my lappy!
hiak hiak hiak
think i wont be sleeping tonight,
i've never really gambled...but lately i've been telling myself to spend 2 pounds a week and buy the Lotto.
i get the lucky dip (equals to spore's quick pick) for a pound, on wed & on sat.
all this in hope i get a bit lucky.....and win enough to buy an air ticket home for a month in summer.
this little dream already sounds so impossible.
then i get news that my friend's wedding is on the 1st & 2nd of jan 05!
i will be still on my winter holidays then.
but but......
why wasnt i born just slightly...ever so slightly richer. just enough to fly me home @ least once a year.
weather for today: a maximum low of -4.

WHERE THE HELL is Spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the perfect lyrics for playing hard-to-get:
What would you do
To get to me
What would you say
To have your way
Would you give up
Or try again
If I hesitate
To let you win
Or would you be yourself
Or play your role
Tell all the boys
Or keep it low
If I say no
Would you turn away
Or play me off
Or would you stay

If at first you don't succeed
Dust yourself off and try it again
You can dust it off and try it again

If at first you don't succeed
You can dust it off and try it again
Dust yourself off and try it again

I'm into you,
You into me
But I cant let it go
So easily
Not 'til I see
What this could be
Be eternity
Or just a week

You know, our chemistry
Is off the chain
Is perfect now
But will it change
This aint a yes
This aint a no
Just do your thang
We'll see how it goes...ohhh

If at first you don't succeed
Dust yourself off and try it again
You can dust it off and try it again

If at first you don't succeed
You can dust it off and try it again
Dust yourself off and try it again

If you dont wanna throw it all away
Might be shy on the first date
What about the next date
huh, huh, huh, huh

If you dont wanna throw it all away
You might be buggin' on the first date
But what about the next date
um, um, um, um
went to the pub down to road for dinner and Porto vs Man Utd.
Porto 2 Man Utd 1.
*hiak hiak*
booze making me want to sleep so much......
just to add: that guy from Stuggart, boy does he have a nice butt cheek.
too bad about the own goal!

ooh. aaron tells me that it's Pancake Day in uk today!

just as i am cursing about how it's still so freaking cold for end february.... i stare out of my window and realise it's Snowing!

can you get to a future if your past is present?
"I'm not a perfect person
As many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you.....

how could a friendship i thought was so great go so wrong?
no amount of apologies will undo the mess i caused.
but i'm hurting too.
ah.....had a seafood galore dinner on friday.
pepper crab, steam crab, calamari, scallops, mussels....smacking good!
the company made it better too> a whole bunch of wacky singaporeans.

today was shopping trip @ Selfridges: to get belated bday gift.
ended up with a Pink cocktail mixer with freezable plastic elephants included! so over the top. hhehehe
then it was off to dinner at Japancentre, then shisha & mint tea.
too much for my poor body.... very stoned.

Friday, February 20, 2004

ok ok...finally i decided to tidy my hair, choose a nice background and take a photo of myself with my v-day pressie.
it's a delicate stainless steel necklace, with a little rock embedded in it!
yeah yeah.
i'm vain.
but don't you all love the necklace, the dress i have on and the backdrop...?

scraps of my life...
slept in till 12 on my friend's sofa...with the damn great view of river thames and canary warf infront of me.
hmm..maybe i should consider plonking my butt in their flat more often.
hiak hiak.
then we had tea at this quaint place on some hidden road in greenwich.
it's called Royal Teas and they serve the loveliest typical english tea munchies!
i had the Cream Tea, which consists of:
smoked salmon, cucumber & cream cheese sandwich,
a nice warm flavoured scone with clotted cream & jam,
then banana & honey cake,
all washed down with my choice of tea, which was peppermint.
this Massive meal only cost me £5.50!
i miss greenwich.....

anyway, Isaac! this was the 2 items i offered to buy for you but i couldnt make up my mind which one,
so i made poor alvin be my model.....

i didnt buy either one, heh!

Wednesday, February 18, 2004

will post pics of my v-day pressies....soon somehow
in the mean time, amuse yourself with crimson room
really hungry, popped into kitchen, opened the fridge and all i got is:
french beans
cherry tomato

goes well with pasta yeah?
opened my cupboard and for ONCE, when i actually want to eat pasta there is None left!

Tuesday, February 17, 2004

isaac's new pup is soooooo cute!!!!!!!!! sorry for stealing ur pic! *grin*
survived the 4hour bus ride back, though i am feeling kinda crap now.
had too much cashew nuts, kinder bueno & chips on my last night and now feeling all 'heaty'.
alvin got me some herbal tea, sipping it now and hope it works!

must say that this trip was great overall, though i feel bad for taking alvin's bed while he took the sofa, making him listen to my nonsense, watch the dreamers with me, follow me to liverpool twice....i took up his whole weekend.
thanks Alvin!

cant type now. brains on fire...think i'm getting a fever.

so, how was everyone's v-day? mine was spent watching in agony as man utd won man city 4-2.
guess the perk of the match was that for 27pounds, we got 6 goals and one send off that made it all worth while!
walked around city centre and when we finally decided to have dinner, it was impossible!
ended up at KFC instead, but of course i made sure the night ended good at this pub, Tribeca.
don't think i want to list what i drank, if not you peeps will be nagging again.

went to liverpool today (sunday), as it's so near here anyway.
might go back there tomorrow to shop as i spotted this really nice store that has got my so wanted Seven jeans on sale!

Friday, February 13, 2004

hopping onto a bus for 5 hours to manchester: with a hope of man utd vs man city
bye london+miserable shit weather.

Thursday, February 12, 2004

i curse you ebay
teeth aching like mad while i have the healthiest meal infront of me ever.
a glass of s'berry+banana+honey smoothie
bowl of granola+musli in peach wholegrain yogurt.

cant wait to chomp on it....that's if my teeth doesnt give up on me.
okie. this meal is going to take forever.
just my luck that i made a HUGE bowl of it...
in the mean time for all you gamers, some good creepy stuff

school ended early for me today as my afternoon class was free+easy: lecturer wasnt in.
so i packed my bags and headed to high street kensington to meet Liz and hopped to Topshop in hope of finding the sneakers i really love in my size.

i got them! you cant imagine how gleeful i was when the salesgirl came out with a pair of sz 39!
here they are....

and they came in this nice shopping bag too.

happi happi!
yeah....this is going to be a great weekend ahead.
who needs a men when a women can have shoes!

ooh.....spotted another really nice bag for £9.99, but i told myself no more!
hmmm, think i will wait a few days and if its still bugging me i will get it.
went on to Liz & Xyn's place for dinner, chill with their 2 lovely cats and we watched Lost in Translation.
it's erm *blank*

wednesday has been great!
cant wait for the rest of the week to happen.

Wednesday, February 11, 2004

internet is down...again.
typing this in a notepad document.

anyway, spent 19pounds on postage today.
but what the heck...the money is well spent if i make the receiver happy!

returned the short black dress too!
got back 22.50
then... i choose to walk around the massive topshop and
got my eyes set on this pair of sneakers which were 18.00

no size.

walked on and on.
then *blink blink* i saw something nice and pink!
got myself a new belt and and....
a black & white polka dot bag!

grand total of:25.20

and i was suppose to return the dress to make back some money.

had dinner at Misato, this value-for-money Jap rest.
ordered chicken katsu curry don for 6.00 and it was Massive!
couldnt finish all and so i convieniently passed it on to our walking rubbish dumps: guys.
hehehheh.think my stomach was filled up by that musli i had for lunch.
yum yum.
then went on for dessert: this place called Ciao that serves Gelare in nice sundae style and spaggetti,
lagsane, fried eggs, asparagus etc looking ones.

couldnt finish again....

was walking home, ears plugged to my mp3 player & hands stuck in coat to keep warm when..
this guy walked up to me and started to speak in french.
i tried to ignore but he cont. walking along side so i stopped and took off my earphones.
he went "so sorry but you really caught my attention, your eyes are really pretty. where you from?"
me "singapore"
him " somewhere in asia inbetween philippines and malaysia?
me "yes"
him "you muslim?"
me "no. Chinese."
him "you work here? study here? with family?"
me " yeah with family"

he then tried to ask me for coffee/tea...said he was waiting for his brother who wasnt there yet.

1: he's old and he's got ulgy teeth
2: it's freezing and dark.
3: my fringe was practically covering my face. how could u have noticed my eyes?
4: 11.30pm. every single coffee place including pubs are Closed.
5: that besides the point>> i wasnt interested.

told him "i'm sorry, my parents are waiting for me to get home"

that's my Tuesday for you.

i err... don't know what to say anymore.

another movie to catch!
ooh....keen on Polly too.

caught this FIsh yesterday.
it's a quirky feel good movie.
if you Hate sappy stuff, it might not be for you?
but then again it's good.
ryuichi sakamoto's 1996 makes me so sad, it's disturbing.

a reef, a smirnoff ice black, a double vodka rebull, a double southern comfort & 7-up, some Snakebite.......
makes me a happy girl, not drunk and out.

after my last relationship, i swore to myself that i will remain single till i graduate in july 2005.
you peeps thinks it's possible?
my friend in manchester thinks that pigs will fly if that happens....
but i really just want to be on my own, to know that i can be independent.
friends are the light of my life.
that one month in singapore was both fun and hell emotionally.

why cant a girl have a perfectly platonic friendship with a guy?
guess it doesnt really exist.
somehow either one will end up having feelings and that screws up everything....
then both parties will have to end up feeling hurt and in denial.

what say you of my situation and my silly thoughts?
please meowww.

i miss my cat, so much it's numb.

Saturday, February 07, 2004

movies to catch: lost in translation | dreamers | dogville | big fish | school of rock |

Friday, February 06, 2004

the dress. it's going back.
i guess the ultimate lifestyle a girl can have is one of Paris Hilton, the socialite.
check out her trip to farmlife.
dinner: cesear salad topped with bacon bits washed down with a pint of Hoegaarden.
bought this pair of shoes yesterday.
to keep or to return?

i'm kinda stuck between the shoes or the short black dress to return......

Thursday, February 05, 2004

it's 4.33am.
just got back.
feet hurt like hell.
*curse those people who stepped on my toes*
wore my silver pointy heels out to a club's wednesdays event, Cheapskates.
entry is 4pounds for students and housepour go for 60pence each!
so cheap that at each time one person is only allowed to buy 3 drinks, and getting the drinks are a huge test of patience.

picked this up while walking home.

Wednesday, February 04, 2004

erm, i'm suppose to be in school now but wat the heck. one last quiz b4 i move my butt outta house.
Your wings are BROKEN and tattered. You are
an angelic spirit who has fallen from grace for
one reason or another - possibly, you made one
tragic mistake that cost you everything. Or
maybe you were blamed for a crime you didn't
commit. In any case, you are faithless and
joyless. You find no happiness, love, or
acceptance in your love or in yourself. Most
days are a burden and you wonder when the
hurting will end. Sweet, beautiful and
sorrowful, you paint a tragic and touching
picture. You are the one that few understand.
Those that do know you are likely to love you
deeply and wish that they could do something to
ease your pain. You are constantly living in
memories of better times and a better world.
You are hard on yourself and self-critical or
self-loathing. Feeling rejected and unloved,
you are sensitive, caring, deep, and despite
your tainted nature, your soul is
breathtakingly beautiful.

*~*~*Claim Your Wings - Pics and Long Answers*~*~*
brought to you by Quizilla
got into class at 2pm, and only a handful of us were around. guess tuesday is the slack-off day for a lot of us. lecturers must be feeling pissed. had a chat with course director, then left at 4pm to go Oxford st.

*gleeful smile*

2 black dresses
2 pairs of leggings
2 ffreaking cheap skirts from FCuk!
