Summer of Bintan 07

Then and now, spot the difference. We have perhaps grown a little wiser, a little more mature in between that span of time. I am chagrined, by the number of times he beats me on his iphone Scrabble, scissors papers stone, and other miscellaneous things. Gah.

Random Quiz

March 10, 2009

I take quizzes because its fun to scoff at some of the ridiculous analysis, but mostly because I end up secretly pleased about what they say about me. =p

Your view on yourself:

You are intelligent, honest and sweet. You are friendly to everybody and don’t like conflict. Because you’re so cheerful and fun people are naturally attracted to you and like to talk to you.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:

You like serious, smart and determined people. You don’t judge a book by its cover, so good-looking people aren’t necessarily your style. This makes you an attractive person in many people’s eyes.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:

You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.

The seriousness of your love:

You are very serious about relationships and aren’t interested in wasting time with people you don’t really like. If you meet the right person, you will fall deeply and beautifully in love.

Your views on education

Education is very important in life. You want to study hard and learn as much as you can.

The right job for you:

You’re a practical person and will choose a secure job with a steady income. Knowing what you like to do is important. Find a regular job doing just that and you’ll be set for life.

How do you view success:

You are confident that you will be successful in your chosen career and nothing will stop you from trying.
What are you most afraid of:

You are afraid of things that you cannot control. Sometimes you show your anger to cover up how you feel.

Who is your true self:

You are full of energy and confidence. You are unpredictable, with moods changing as quickly as an ocean. You might occasionally be calm and still, but never for long.

ooh la la, j’aime paris!

October 29, 2008

Paris is a beautiful city to be in, beautifully dysfunctional – the parisians are not known to be the friendliest in the world, but hey, you’ve got to take the good with the bad.

Anyway, I am really enjoying the experience of living away from home, having the freedom to make my own decisions and being solely responsible for my well being. There’s still alot to brush up on though; I take ages to do my laundry, and I still can’t fry the perfect sunny side up.

My stamina has definitely improved though, thanks to HEC’s superb location in the countryside. Trekking up and down the hill to the train station and climbing the flights of steps to my room have become my daily dose of exercise.

will be posting regularly. stay tuned

time of your life

August 19, 2008

” It’s something unpredictable, but in the end its right, I hope you’ve had the time of your life.” Or so Greenday says.

This summer probably trumps all other summers I’ve had in my uni life thus far.

First up, the internship
I honestly enjoyed my internship with JP. I had wonderful colleagues, colleagues who were ever willing to reach out to you, entertain your qns, even though they probably had 12313434 things to do on hand. I also had a very lovable bunch of interns for company. We worked hard alongside each other, partied, laughed. All these people, with whom without, there’d probably be half the joy to share with.

the sunny island holiday @ Rawa Island
Agreeing to go on this trip for this never heard of island with the bf was definitely worth the 3 hour bumpy journey there. There’s just 1 resort on this tiny island, and the waters are invitingly sparkling clear. You don’t even have to swim up to the corals, the fishes swim right up to the shore during high tide! Peacocks stroll around the beaches nonchalantly. We kayaked, snorkelled, took lotsa photographs. Just wish I had more time on the island to laze around. The 1 night stay was just too darn short!

Go-Karting @ JB
I am the slowest go-karter around. Probably has to do with me using the brakes more than accelerating. And I had the WORST LOOKING GO-KART EVAR. But it was fun nevertheless, and the boys’ personalities shone through with their attempts at being fast and furious.

Shopping in Hong Kong
Oh gosh. I shopped till I dropped there, literally. Nevermind that it was the most eventful trip I had. Day 1 of our arrival, there was a Level 8 typhoon raging. Our plane landing consisted of a few sudden dips, it was really almost barf inducing. To our dismay and consternation, the shops were mostly closed that day. Day 2, kickstarted the day yum-cha-ing at a dimsum restaurant. Then a trip to H&M where we spent a significant portion of time.

trade in

i’ve traded my happy carefree life with that of the corporate cubicles. gogogo!

the last straw

“The wind picked up the last piece of what’s left of the house and blew it far far away”
Maybe one thing when said too often, becomes real.

As whiny as a creaky bicycle

May 3, 2008

The bf and I celebrated our 2nd anniversary cycling in ubin. Not exactly what I had in mind initially, but my suggestion of visiting the Escape theme park at Downtown East was sadly vetoed!! Ah well, it was tiringly fun, you should have seen me attempting to ride up the slopes, I almost went backwards. Am definitely not as fit as I was back in those JC days, when I last visited with josh, ching and co. after our prelims. So throughout the journey I was as whiny as my creaky bike, whilst secretly enjoying the change of scenery and the wind in my hair as I whizzed down the slopes.

Les Yeux De Marie

April 18, 2008

Elle marche seule dans la nuit sous un ciel de minuit
En suivant les lampadaires qui s’allument dans la nuit
Tranquillement elle reprend le même chemin qu’avant
Les allées qui serpentent jusqu’à l’odéon
Et dans les vitrines en face, elle se voit passer

Dans les yeux de marie on voit la vie qui passe
Le jour plus sombre que la nuit
Elle n’attend que lui, elle n’attend que, da da da…
Et les écrans de télé reflètent le côté caché de ses envies
Mais j’ai pas compris pourquoi on voit que la nuit
Dans les yeux de marie

Dans une cabine téléphonique
Elle tente encore de faire son appel transatlantique
Mais elle tombe sur le son de la tonalité
Il n’était pas là, d’ailleurs il n’est jamais là
Retourne-toi, ne reste pas la, c’est pas la peine chère marie

Dans les yeux de marie on voit la vie qui passe
Le jour plus sombre que la nuit
Elle n’attend que lui, elle n’attend que, da da da…
Et les écrans de télé reflètent le côté caché de ses envies
Mais j’ai pas compris pourquoi on voit que la nuit
Dans les yeux de marie

Jour après jour après la fin du monde
On se cache du soleil et des amours souffrants
Je crois que toi et moi aussi, on est un peu comme marie

Dans les yeux de marie on voit la vie qui passe
Le jour plus sombre que la nuit
Elle n’attend que lui, elle n’attend que, da da da…
Et les écrans de télé reflètent le côté caché de ses envies
Mais j’ai pas compris pourquoi on voit que la nuit
Dans les yeux de marie
