the slow Journey...: February 2008

Saturday, February 23, 2008


Lazy o me as usual loves to procrastinate. Yup, so here it is after been slapped with a tag by the babbler (renamed ) for the following meme (?? huh ? whats that? don't know too)

Rules for the meme are as follows :
  • Link to the person who tagged you ( must i? nahh)
  • Post the rules on your blog.
  • Share seven random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog.
  • Tag seven random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
  • Leave a comment on their blogs so that they know they have been tagged.

Ok shall start it off NOW. I.....

  1. Fantasise CONSTANTLY.....(not what you think it is)....that i have some sort of superpower, the type of power varies according to my mood at that time.
  2. Have evolved from very likeable, quiet and guai me when very young to very noisy in Primary school onwards to a slightly introverted self in Secondary school before morphing to a very outward me in JC and continued to charge down that path even now...
  3. But one quality remains the same since i was very young 8)
  4. Treasures friends, especially close friends, and loyal to them, even though might not really show it some time. Can't same the same for a few of them though.
  5. Am hoping for the special one to drop by and say hi! im finally here!
  6. Can switch in a flash from the normal me to a very formal me with only carefully chosen replies using the best of what i can offer linguistically in 2 languages. This is somewhat similar to the Babbler in a way.
  7. Am very random. In speech/ sometimes action and what i think.

And so this shall be passed on to.....

Just remembered and suddenly felt like doing it after reaching home.

Oh and today was Singing session from 1 to 7. Not what i really liked at first though, somehow i sounded so soft i couldnt hear myself amidst the shouting and the very good speaker system. Quite a lot of errrr....old and not my type of songs too. but at least it picked up towards the end. Shall continue to strive and improve my singing! : )

Bird fluttering over its nest

What a dead tiring week this is. All the rest from the 4 days were put to GOOD use on Monday, super busy, continued to tuesday, but wednesday was the start of the super super unlucky bout! Reached Dhoby at 7pm hoping to reach home early, but guess what NEL had problems Again. Ants swarming around at the NEL platform.

People who still believed that the next train is gonna come in the next 10 mins and were thinkig like hey! who knows it might even be empty?? Lucky i didnt have such disillusions. wahahaha Immediately walked back to take the red line. Took the Wrong direction somemore! arghhh, had to take back from City hall to Toa Payoh in the end. it doesnt end here, missed my bus at TP and had to wait a whole 30 mins before im back home near 9pm..... and nope no students for me to control like that relief teacher or acting like a mental patient the whole day. Just paper work is enough.

Yea and the thought of weekends coming is enough to rejuvenate me for one more day :) plus the free Birdnests and Hashima that i won in office today! hahah, how heng.

And single me can only sit here at home and say Happy Valentines to couples out there!! on my blog : (

Well.... Don't know what would be a suitable title for this. yup.

Chinese New Year, yup. That period where the unmarried go around happily visiting and collecting ang baos, of course you have to be unmarried and young to do so.
Or you can have the skin of an elephant, works either way.

For me, its just quite the same for these few years. A time to rest and relax, WITHOUT the house visiting!! YES! I abbhor house visiting, just going around smiling to everyone. Saying congratulatory phrases befitting of the festivity ( most common of which is 恭喜发财 , after all most ppl say that Just to nab a lil red packet right? ), I'd rather skip all these rituals and do what i FEEL LIKE doing during these few days. So here i am at home, and will be too for the next few days. Lack of relatives (geographically close ones too) coupled with the inherent detest for house visiting seems to be the reason.

Nope i dont think its sad at all, except for the part where u get fewer ang baos. You might think that its like a form of premature ageing, to not enjoy CNY, but I'd prefer to look at it as....learning to do what you want and not what the event dictates you to do. Sometimes i even wonder if im not married by 30 what would i do during CNY! hahah, cant stay at home for the rest of my life during that day right? never arrived at an answer though.

Past week and a half has been quite a no rest week, mostly reaching home after 10 during weekdays followed by work. Rinse Repeat and Rejoice, and so the exhaustion/fatigue builds up and rolls along. Can't blame anyone else. But the dinner on monday was really good, had it with my army branch mates at Hanabi. You guessed it, a Jap restaurant. Plus you get a complimentary lobster for every 2 ppl! Buffet price per person is also not that ex, 33++ for good quality food. Not bad i say, after that we started moulding plans for the next outing to spend the money we got for the QFR idea during the Army open house. most probably would be Fullerton! seems like one of the few places where you can really dump money at for a meal. So... looking forward to that!
*Noticed that the last paragraph is kinda disjointed. oh well.

Currently im witnessing a standoff between a malay couple on a car and a motorcyclist. The motorcyclist was initially blocking the way of the car, moving forward to continue to be in its way whenever the car tried to back off and turn. Then the motorcyclist gave way and procedded to park in an available slot.

Car's turn for revenge.

Yup, the car mvoed in to block the path of the motorcyclist and the couple stepped out. (was kinda hoping there would be a confrontation... ) But the driver took his driver's seat floor mat and went ahead to dust it just right to the side of the cyclist. Kinda anti climatic yea i know.

Follow the chicken when you marry the chicken. Wife did the same thing too. Its still happening as im typing this. heh. shall update again when something more....out of the ordinary pops up.
