today was the first time I...

cried over a shoe.

I had left 1 side of my shoe in a corner at work and forgot about it till 2 days later... by the time I went hunting for the shoe, it was gone!

Asked around office today and my colleague went:"ah that white dirty looking shoe ah? that's yours ah? I threw it out! thought it was a 'thing' left behind by some 'dirty spirits'"


That shoe was new new new from UK! Only wore it 3 times ok????!!!!!

I'm now left with the other side of the shoe and I dunno what to do. Don't even want to look at it but I don't want to trash it either.


my shoeeeeee.......

well in any case that you did not know, I love my shoes - each and every single one, be it cheap or expensive!

to hk to hk to kill dave in ocean park

and then we had dim sum...

summer weddings

So it's come to July, my 8th month in HK. Getting used to this cycle of work, sleep, china trips, pack room mess, work, rush out to do laundry, sleep....

boring eh.

Anyway, July seems to be wedding season! Can't really blame the July lovebirds, sunshine does give good doses of happiness. =)

Congratulations to Cherylann and Kevin! (That was on 3rd July)
Then there's Isaac and Ju, congrats you sweet couple! (ROMed on 7th July)
Last wedding of the month is of Fook Kian and Min Chin, which is to take place in London, then Sabah and lastly Seoul! Whoo~ If only I can somehow make it for the one in Seoul...

*wrinkling nose*

enough of my boring inputs, have a great July and it's back to dragging the boys out for shopping now that the World Cup is over!

Hurray! *grin*

Greetings from Ho Chi Minh. Raining... dunno what to do... everyone tells me it's dangerous to venture out. Oh well... at least I can now say that I have been to Vietnam. No photos taken... will try when the rain stops.

I just need to dissolve...

into jelly and flop in bed. The past month has been the usual craziness...see, got no time to blog. Had to clear work as I went home for 4 days. Upon my return it was maga madness again as we had our biggest customer in to see our showroom. So much work to clear, so little time!
Glad that I dragged my half asleep body out to meet Dwayne for a beer and fries though, at least I got to breath some 'hk island' air.
I will be heading to UK for a business trip next week. *ultimate stress*

almost killed by that darn machine

So another week has passed... nothing much besides me doing weights for the first time at the gym. I thought I would cry while lifting weights on this machine that works ONLY the thighs. After being coaxed to do 3 reps, each time with heavier weights.... I was ready to call it quits. If only it was that easy to get off the hook... My assigned 'trial' PT refused and pushed me on to others, but at least they were not as bad.

Was suppose to go partying but that gym session really killed me so I decided to rot and watch a midnight screening of MI 3. Spent the whole of Sunday sleeping, a total of 18 hours to be exact. My thighs literally burned... Getting out of bed was a slow+painful process, as in case you did not know by now - I have a loft bed.

Monday was not any better. Walking to the MTR, getting up the stairs to get out of the MTR, every step was agony and I looked like a old duck (groaning with every awkard step). Really thought the muscle pain was to last me for a whole week but today... it's got better to a bearable pain.

So anyway ya lah, finished Yoga class, jumped into the steam room finally and I feel totally fresh! Just got no where to go but home... *pout*

So anyway yes I have conformed and joined a gym.
It's brand new, just opened start of May and it's 5mins walk from my flat.
(depends on the Mongkok human traffice though...sometimes it's 10mins + a lot of grunting)

I go for yoga... yoga...and more yoga.
Have yet to check out the Step classes yet and last Sunday I went to Spinning classes.
Thought I would have dropped off the bike and faint of exhustion....
My head was spinning and my face went bright red.

Dunno how they people can take this class! Apparently it's the best way to loose weight from the lower body + get a tone butt.

Oh well... at least now I have a reason to leave work earlier 3 times a week.

Will write again when I have something nice to talk about. Off home now to nurse my poor body... with sleep of course!

a bigger step...

to being away from my boy.

Spent 3000HKD today at Ikea, all for my new 'pad' in Mongkok - which means a decision to stay on in HK longer... well, at least 6 mths as that's my rental lease agreement.

It's only my 4th month here but it feels like forever that we have been apart. It feels silly sometimes, that we have been doing all this long-distance right from the start till now - a whole 2 years. I have another 20mths of my contract to go... can I really take it for that long? Why did I choose this path that causes us to be apart for like 95% of a year...?

Anyway, too late to turn back now - I can only make the best of my time here right?
wish I could sleep but I miss you too much

no sushi...

and 1 slice of cho toro was all the sashimi I had in Tokyo.
This was one stressful buying trip where everything seemed to go wrong. Anyway... Got back into HK 1030pm last night but a whole chain of events made me get home only just before midnight. Long long day.... 8.30pm already and I dunno how long more it's going to be.

Thursday, February 16, 2006


I am going to Tokyo next week for a buying trip!
Soooooo excited!!!
My first trip out of HK/China for work.
Dave says I cant be impulsive and buy everything I like.
Will go sleep on that.

'eating snake'

CNY went past in a blur.
ate too much... there's no other place that can replace all the food that I so love back home.
anyway now typing this on my wireless network at home!
erm erm...
nothing to write about anymore as I have a boring life.

in the meantime for those of you who are bored at work, have fun skiving on this!
