I went to read my old diary entries yesterday. The damn nostalgic ones, from 2000-2004. I.e. when we were in secondary school.
And I decided that it is definitely much better to have a photo album of memories than a diary.
I was such an IMBECILE back then! And I talked like a Chow Ah Lian! With bells on! I added a “z” to everything and used Chinese sentence structure! Ohmygawd. I so do not believe that that was the way I talked back then. So Embarassing. So Toot. And yet, those were the happiest days of my life.
I think we all dress up our memories to be that much more glam when we look back. If not for the diary, I’d have vehemently denied in good faith that I ever spoke like a Chow Ah Lian. Thank God I’ve come to my senses, and now speak Bimbolingo. HAHAHA.
In other news, Thanksgiving dinner tonight was quite awesome, sans the screaming home entertainment system aka my 2- and 4-year-old nephews. It was hilarious but extremely noisy. Naturally my “I want to have kids” meter went further into the negative nether regions.
I spent most of my time cuddling Pebble, my cousin’s dog. He is so ADORABLE!! He didn’t want to go home and sat at my feet whilst my cousin-in-law tugged at the leash, prompting him to tease his son with a “Can Pebble stay with Zhezhe tonight?” Hahahaha. Dogs are awesome. Can’t wait to buy a Papillon puppy when I’ve got the money!
Filed under family, musings
Exams have been over for 3 days and GOD I am feeling HAPPY.
The HAPPY has not worn off yet. It’s so nice to be able to watch Project Runway without glancing nervously at the clock and constantly calculating how much time I can spend on a break.
I have done a few interesting things over the past few days!
1. I have gone hunting for a monokini. Singapore is sold out of monokinis. I cannot believe it. Jolin zen-ly said, “Aiyah, monokinis just not popular with Singaporeans lah.” I sadly concur. I am monokini-less and am refusing point blank to remove any cover I have over my bikini in Bali!
2. I have tried to use eye glue! You know, to make fake double eyelids. It works, fascinatingly. But it doesn’t stay up for more than an hour. That is the pathetic part. I have also tried eye tape. That works much better – stays up for a day or so. But I don’t find that my eyes look very much bigger, which was the whole point of the enterprise for me. As such, I think I will turn to Bobbi Brown instead for gel liner that will make my eyes look HUGE. What? I’m being too ambitious you say? Those slits I call eyes are not going to open up except with surgery? Finefine. The liner will make my eyes look LESS SMALL. There. Happy now?
3. I had tea with Mommy at Cova. The salmon and spinach quiche is TO DIE FOR.
4. I bought two firsts: a pair of PINK Steve Madden sandals (I decided I agree with Jolin that my wardrobe needs a little more colour), and a vest from Mango. I have been looking for a vest that does not make me look like a fat waitress since forever, and I finally found it! woohoo!
I want more SHOPPINGS. Unfortch I need more MONAYYYS! Hahahahaha.
Bu ke yi luan hua qian. Nodnod.
Kenneth Cole for Victoria’s Secret.
Okay yes this is the last thing I should be doing with my exam 9h away.
(But this only takes 5min.)
Fine. Back to work.
I don’t remember the last time I watched this much TV during an exam season. Actually, I don’t usually watch TV, exams or no.
I think the only time I’ve watched more TV was during the PSLE. Hahahahahhaha. I discovered Cartoon Network at a comparatively late age.
I can’t wait to go to Bali and snuggle up to Sherlock Holmes and the Pickwick Files. Whoopeeeeee.
Meanwhile, there is a mosquito prancing around my study room and sucking my blood AGAIN. I’ve put on an aromatherapy burner. Suffocate on citronella bitchhhhhh
At first I thought IP was going to be quite a slack 8 cred.
Rarrrrr! 5 more days!
Immediately after surgery
10 days after surgery
9 months after surgery
The change is really quite amazing!!! Maybe I should pay a trip to Woffles Wu too. I swear my eye looks exactly like hers did before surgery!

The Bad News: Longchamp can’t repair my bag. :(
The Good News: I get a one-for-one exchange!
I did like that design though. Hopefully they have something similar. :)
