i love my...

milk chocolate Toblerone.
after an agonizing week of hunting every single Tesco+Sainsbury+Woolworth in my neighbourhood but to no avail,
i finally got a small bar of my oh so favourite chocolate bar from a mama shop last night.
to think that the big chains of supermarkets will carry Toblerone but hey, no!
was beginning to think that it might be a conspiracy against me, 'cos they have the dark or white choc ones.
either that there is something wrong with the milk chocolate range and they pulled out all stock? *gasp*
but i just finished the whole bar last night and i was fine...
i want my big bar of Toblerone!!!
*boo hoo*

100% feet-killing exhibition

Went to 100%Design over the weekend.
It's more for interior designers....with the few wallpaper designs here & there.
Thanks to Dave, i got in free as a trade visitor 'cos i wouldnt have paid 15quid to go in!
Managed to take only a few photos, as most designers were anti-phototaking of their work.
Also had a Swedish chick at one of the booths giving me a condescending glare when i asked her for a catalogue.

i'm weird.
i do stuff in the middle of the night.
just spent the last 31/2 hours 'saving' my bathroom.
3 tiles fell off and i decided to settle the whole thing once and for all.
stuck them back onto the wall, then started to squeeze on water-resistant seal all over the bathtub.
i hope it works.
DIY's quite fun actually...

just got off the phone with my mum...
first thing she said was:"haven't heard from you for 3 months!"
made me feel even more sheepish about it, since i was calling to ask for money to pay my school fees.
then mum went on:"oh, the coupe is going off, i got a new 4 door one."
i panicked.
knowing my mum, she would have gotten those HUGE monster mercs...
i love the Coupe, why cant we keep it?

Coupe and mum never got off to a good start, always giving her problems and funny symbol lights going off and freaking her out.
so what made her give up on it?

Driving home one night during the 7th month, the car died on her 4 times.
Scared her enough to tell me that she could have almost died.
Apparently it was some engine pump leak, which took only 1 day to repair but caused irreversible trauma to mum.
Within the next few days, the lovely Coupe which i've so dearly loved will be off
and replaced by a hedious golden-brown 4 door saloon model.

Quite upset i can't bring it out for a final spin,
since it was my first and only car i got to drive after i got my license.

It's also the 1st car which i :
1) on a night out to Zouk, i made a huge nick right into the metal work while tring to park it.
2) scratched the bottom of the bumper when parking head-in first in a HDB carpark,
(yes i've learnt since then never ever to do that cos the stupid curbs are so high)
3) backed it into a low yellow pole i didnt see while reversing,
causing a slight dent in back bumper which mum never knew!
4) scratched the front metal work just by the right headlight, when i got distracted at a
guardpost and released the break pedal... car then lunged into the barrier-pillar.

that's about all the damage i've ever done to the lovely Coupe,
but the new owner will never see them, cos mum got the car re-sprayed after she backed it into a pillar @ a carpark.
i know i know, i'm not a perfect driver but at least i didnt wrack the car!
so i can't be that bad a driver, right?
see, i'm not being all upset 'cause it's a Coupe, i've valid sentimental reasons!



finally got my replacement 6230!
had just about enough of my 8210's battery dying on me everytime i make a long phonecall.
that's all for now.

forgetting the past, living the present, for the future

Dec'03 was the very first time i heard jay chou's An Jing.
back then, this song made me cry.
as do many other songs that we feel relate to us at certain moments, right?

Fast forward to 23 Sept'04:
2.18am on a cold autumn London night & shuffling through my winamp,
i stumble across this song yet again.
for the past few months, i have been skipping past this song,
afraid that it will evoke some silly emotions inside me.
which i can say is very easy.
lately, every little thing make's me tearful.
watching Carrie in SATC's last episode almost made me bawl...
then again, it's only tv & i've turned into cry baby.

so i've just sat through the whole 5mins 36secs of An Jing.
it tempted me to dig inside and sob something out, some sadness which i don't have.
i am not unloved.
i have my friends.
why am i letting a song play this emotional game with me all the time?

so i decided to loop this song.
loop it till i get numb.
so that i will no longer be haunted by a song.

i never should have been and i shall no longer be.

what's a girl in london to do when she's hungry @ 2am?

make sushi

doe a deer, a female deer.....

Come Tuesday i will be leaving for Salzburg: where Sound of Music was filmed, and then on to Munich: Oktoberfest!
all the sausages...all the beer...all the carnival rides.

from now till i get back, think i will not be blogging.
life for now is all about being at home, hiding from the cold and the rain.
while i try and do my ever massive agenda of schoolwork.

senseless fun

check out these two korean girls! to cheer up your day.
it's not porn!


all in one day...
i spotted 2 shoes i wanted and i didnt get to buy them both.
doesnt help that i am currently bogged down with issues which are beyond my control.
everyone tells me it's ok.
but feel like crying at some points.
why you may ask.
i don't know the answer.
maybe i am a cry baby.
maybe it's some conflict within myself that i cannot handle.
maybe i just cannot handle problems.
maybe i have to many lame excuses for feeling like this.

summer's coming?

as reported in the Evening Standard last week:

August's torrential downpours and floods are to be replaced by warm sunshin that may last untill October.
Forecasters predict a repear of weather patterns from the Fifties and Sixties,
which saw warm and sunny weather in May & early June, followed by winds and showers in July,
a deluge in August and long periods of sunshin for much of September and possibly October.
The current forecast predicts brighter and warmer weather starting later this week.
Temperatures are expected to climb steadily and each 27C by next Monday or Tuesday.

Yes, the weather-man got it right this time round.
it's high of 26C this week, though a tad windy.
i simply detest English weather.
so unpredictable.

i want to make myself more depressed?

it's 3.02am
just heard a radio ad for "Sad Songs, the compilation album".
sis+me: "huh!!?"
sis goes:"who in the world will want to buy an album of sad songs?"

by the river piedra i sat down and wept

But love is always new.
Regardless of whether we love once, twice, or a dozen times in our life, we always face a brand-new situation.
Love can consign us to hell or paradise, but it always takes us somewhere.
We simply have to accept it, because it is what nourishes our existence.
If we reject it, we die of hunger, because we lack the courage to stretch out a hand and pluck
the fruit from the branches of the tree of life.
We have to take love where we find it, even if that means hours, days, weeks of disappointment and sadness.
The moment we begin to see love, love begins to seek us.
And to save us.

that was your jerry springer moment....

i realised over the past days that i had done so many things but yet i didn't manage to blog them down.
getting lazy you presume.
i don't know what i do but the whole day just seems to fly by in a blink.
i wake up, potter around the kitchen for a bite, check my emails, blog hop, eat lunch.....
then somehow or other more menial tasks just pops up.
all this when i am suppose to be doing my summer homeworks!

watched Jerry Springer the musical the other day before candice left.
it was one very fun to watch and get involved in.
all the crude jokes and cursing, yet it is not in anyway offensive.
very light-heartening.
we paid £30 for a 2 course dinner+upper circle seats to the musical,
but when we got there, they say we got upgraded to stall seats!
it was a great bargain!
now planning for my next musical.
should i watch Chitty Chitty Bang Bang?

Oh, one thing to point out:
my luck has be shites lately...

these were what Candice brought back to spore.....
7 pcs of heavy luggage + 1 handbag.
when we got to the airport & were lugging the pieces out of the taxi,
the driver said:" i think you need 2 trolleys"
true enough...
i prayed so hard that she would manage to check-in alright and thank God she did!
in the end she just needed to hand-carry on 3 pcs.
she was in raffles class: upgraded with airmiles cos we figured she was never going to carry all within the luggage allowance for economy class...

[the people+the pee]
the day after the 40th notting hill festival and everywhere looks like crap.
even after a supposedly big clean-up, my usual route to and from the bustop now is strewn with SO much rubbish.
there's a pile of ash sitting on the pavement, random chicken bone strewn around, spots of flattened horse dung squashed flat into the tarmac, dried stains of pee everywhere!!!!
i'm now praying for a thunderstorm to wash all this crap away.....
yesterday, the music point down the road was blasting so much bass that my windows started to vibrate...then later the whole flat was vibrating too!
thought i was going to go mad, then i decided to go grab some food.
only thing i liked best about the festival was the 7 for 2.50pounds "saltfish fritters".
nothing else about the festival impressed me.
it was my first and last time i will be around for it.
