Gong Hei Fatt Choy!


Gong Hei Gong Hei!

(a lil' bit very late I know. But Chinese have the privilege of celebrating it for 15 long days anyway! =D )

OMG. How can a dog be so cute!!! Whose is this?

OF COURSE MINE LA. lei chui a?

I can enjoy her cuteness every single moment. Please don't be jealous.

Oops, sorry, topic diverted.

Shouldn't put the picture of my Money, people might mistaken this year is Year of Doggie. Aiya, sorry.


Is the Year of Ox. The moo moo Ox. So automatically, at the brink of the 1st day of Chinese New Year, my handphone message inbox kept singing its tune, rejoicing every new year messages that is received. And among all the other messages, I fancy one particular one the most:

"Let's charge like a bull,
Leave the bullshit behind,
Straight to the bull's eye,
Without bullying others!"

A Chinese New Year wish by my warrior friend, Roger.

I like how the word 'bull' (aka cow aka ox, whichever it is, they mean the same) is used and the meaning it portrays. I just couldn't agree more!

And the Year of Ox, for a Horsie like me, the many areas in life are predicted to be fairly good or I choose to believe, very good, in 2009. (Every year I also believe very good one la.)

Anyhow, not to be superstitious, but just as a reference, a brief analysis on your Horsie life 2009:

Career: Despite the many obstacles that you may encounter during work, there will be a strong Lucky Moon Star, that will show up to support and help you solve the problems of entanglement. So it's very good. No need to worry at all.

Money: This luck is still struggling. (But heck cares? They might not be true. Lalalalala.) Advice us not to expect windfall and since we cannot increase income, we have to cut our expense. So no more LV or Jimmy Choo, wear your Bata.

Love: There is a Love Star coming in 2009. That means you have a chance to meet someone you like. Both of you will produce the passion in love, (Hoho, really? We shall see. ;D ) but will not last long. (What is this? Hoho. Whatever.)

Health: The signs indicate illness, exhaustion, panic, fright or weakness coming to people. If you have poor health in 2008, your health won't have any improvement this year. Horse people must make sure have enough sleep during the night. (Big time hinting me!! This one I'll listen. Hehe.) Otherwise, they will have weak energy and weak resistance against the disease.

Fortune: In general, Horse people don't have a good luck in 2009, but their luck have significant improvement when comparing with 2008. Luckily, whenever you encounter the big difficulty, someone will appear to solve the problem for you. Therefore, you shouldn't give up anything when troubles come to challenge you.

Report ended.

Whatever it is, never be influenced or stucked with whatever it says. You make the luck and the difference towards your life, not all these Feng Shui Master that predict you your life. Of course, they will predict for you because it's their job, but you can choose not follow it and then make a colourful turn.

Chinese New Year is different at home this year. After my sister's marriage, she has to be at her husband's place. It's without her during Reunion dinner; no extra person to help my mum put in the money into the angpow; No more sister-bugging-me-up-from-bed early on the first day. I gotta entertain myself already. Gees.

No wait. Luckily I have my Money to entertain me!

my red nail polish to keep me busy with;

My handsome nephews;

And my funny dad that takes photos purposely with his eyes closed.

Can he be less funnier than that? Aiyoyo.

More about Chinese New Year in later posts! =D

I like Gong Xi Fa Cai Chinese New Year!

What? Vintage is back? Again?

My mum came back from Johor last weekend and she brought back tonnes of CHINESE NEW YEAR CLOTHES for me! =DDD

But somehow, most of the blouses and dresses she bought brought back all the vintage fashion to my wardrobe.

I asked her: "Why all Vintage clothes?"

She answered me: "Because it's in the fashion now, you don't know?"

I bought the wash-out jeans myself. I love it! Wee.
(This is how excited a girl would get over a pair of favourite jeans. -.-)

And then my funny dad said: "Because you are 古典美人 of course you have to wear Vintage." Walao. That's from my own dad ok. Woot woot.

(The above statement above shows my self-promoting. If not I won't write what my dad said about me right?)

CNY this year, probably came a bit too early. After celebrating the annual 25th of Dec Christmas Day, we immediately went into the enthusiasm of receiving the new 2009. Then in a swift, we Chinese, have to get prepared for our own Chinese New Year. I guess people tend to lose they mood to welcome any more festive season and celebration. It came too soon and there are too much to do.

First, you gotta keep up with your new year resolutions. Doing whatever you can to kick-start the year with a hit.

Then before anything could grow big, you already have to get yourself prepared for CNY. New year clothes, shoes, bags, accessories etc (Ok, fine. Those things are some of the things I can't do without for CNY. Hehe. Only apply to me la ok.) Then new year cookies, new year decorations, Tong Tong Chiang New Year Songs and most of all, Tong Tong Chiang CNY mood.

So that's why I only got my CNY clothes one week before CNY officially commences!

Behold: Snake-o-phobic must close your eyes!

And not forgetting my CNY shoes TOO! =)

Now, quickly kick own butt and get yourself immediately into the Chinese New Year mood. Before it's too late! Never miss out in this joyous season!

I can't wait!

Sweetful Bliss.

I woke up in the morning, feeling the serene bliss in me.

I was shocked when I shifted my sight towards my table clock, it was nearly noon. And I am supposed be to up at 8am for a breakfast appointment.

But all that doesn't matter, for I know, the dream that I just made, just couldn't be anymore wonderful. I could see the big grin reflecting on my face eventhough both my eyes were shut. Closing my eyes help me reminised the moment better. =)


I dreamt of him, discarding his past and finally found his trust.

I dreamt of him, seeing the brightest ray and popping the biggest light bulb.

I dreamt of him, making the suprise, appearing by my sight.

I dreamt of me, astounded, astonished; altogether, dumbfounded.

I dreamt of me, tears streaming by.

I dreamt of me, savouring the candy sweet as apple pie.


I remember it, crystal clear, how the events roll out smoothly like the red carpet.

I even remember our tender conversation:

"Why are you here then?"

"Well...It's just because of you. =)"

.......Until I involunteerily opened my eyelids and realised: It was all just a dream. A sweet dream.

Never knew after so many days of sombriety, the obstacles finally fizzles through. Just the simple effort of ringing the doorbell, the special key twisted the right direction.

"I only allow myself one more night and that's it. I will see the Dazzling Sunshine the next morning."

And it was just too true.

Though things may present abstract; I never dread the reality of it. For all I know, my dreams may be coming true. =)

Singapore Getaway # Day 3

I think you havn't got enough of Singapore so I don't care I'm gonna give you more. =P

Today is Fishing Day!

Is just that we don't fish fish, we fish prawns. -.-

Welcome to the Bishan Prawn Pond! (Note that I made up the place's name. Sorry. I know it's a bit lame. =S But Bishan is really the area we went. Hehe.)

My friends are gonna bring me to prawn-fishing today. I thought, hey, this would be much easier than fish-fishing, not like I've tried fish-fishing before, but at least prawn's brain are smaller! Ok, bring it on bay-beh!

So you have to pay money, choose the rod and get your bait, and START fishing. Oh, oh, I mean prawning!

It's priced at 30 SGD for 3 hrs, you get one rod and one saucer of bait and all the catch goes into your stomach. Good or good?

At first I thought it was easy, hell yeah, the prawns must be stupid. Don't they know they live in here for people to fish them up? (But of course not like they have a choice not to live in here...)

So I excitedly started off my fishing 'debut'. =D

Geoff has the most 'expertise' in this frolic. In just a few minutes time, he managed to hook up a middle-sized poor struggling prawn. Haha.

So I was more excited. I can't wait to hook up another guy! I mean another prawn. Gees.

But I never did. =(

I tried and tried. No prawn came to my line and I kept losing the bait. Dumb dumb.

I thought the prawns were dumb. Now I found out I am the one who is. Huhu.

I used all the technique I can that I learned from Geoff to whack the fella onto my trap. Nothing work. I guess is because even they managed to come near me, they all fainted because I'm too (something). Yeah, I reckon so.

So then I screamed for help, nearly two hours had passed, I don't want to be the only person who still got nothing, when Geoff , Darren and Leah got a few victims already. =(

Geoff then came to give me his 'words of wisdom' in this prawning thingy.

And woot! Mr Prawn was hooked!

Celebration of victory

I managed to get few others subsequently. Yeesh!

Btw, each and every one of the prawns has at least one pincer like this. So you need to pluck it out once you pull the fella out from the pond. If not it will 'ngiap' (clinch) onto your hand when you want to cook it and make ouch ouch ouch.

When 3 hours is already up, here's our catch of the day. =)

Approximately 28 prawns plus minus. Hoho.

Then it's time for the scrumptious prawnSSS meal.

First, wash the prawns with clean water.

Second, apply salt all over them for according to your own flavour.

Then, we need to poke the bamboo sticks into the prawns to barbecue it. YUM YUM.

And for your info, prawns don't do it from the front,

they prefer the backdoor. =D

Oh yes.

What I mean is, you poke the stick from the back so that it can be cooked easily and nicer to yum-yum! What are you thinking?

They don't die when you poke them, their tiny 'feets' are still marching madly. Not until they are cooked.

The boss of prawning place told us, to make sure the prawns taste yum, leave the prawns on the pit: left side 1 min, right side 1 min, bottom part 1 min and top part 2 mins. And then your prawns will be finger-licking-good!

And it's so damm true.

Fresh, succulent, salty sweetness and Mmmm...leaves you unforgettable!

And..That concludes my last day in Singapore. =)

Singapore Getaway # Day 2

Let me continue with my long-ago S'pore trip back in December 08..Oh Gosh, so outdated. Sorry!

The day drizzled a bit when we woke up in the morning. Me and Leah are all packed to set out to Siloso Beach, Sentosa for a fun day out.

At the same time, we prayed that the teeny weeny rain would stop entirely and the weather would smile brightly again. (Like my million-dolar-smile. =DDDDD)

However, I was still very blown away by the flabbergasting stories I heard from Leah. I just couldn't imagine me being her. Couldn't, no hell way. Oh GOSH.

It's still drizzling when we reached Siloso Beach. But we wouldn't and couldn't care much, it's just too stupid to try to shelter ourselves from the rain when we have came so far to play our hearts out!

We played a volley ball game of 5. And having our single-arm Warrior, Gary (or how we call him 杨过), to play with us, was just truly inspiring.

As we got more energetic and enthusiastic about the game, the ball started to roll further. I didn't want the ball to roll down from the slope and down into the waters, so I ran as fast as I could to grab it. Just when I wanted to turn back for the game after I got the ball in the middle of the slope on the beach, I saw my bunch of friends walking towards me, with a sinister gaze and a the grin I only see in the Joker character of the movie Dark Knight.

I can sense the danger coming.

Before I could flee, Leah grabbed me from the top and Geoff lifted me up on my legs and..1..2..3 SPLASH!

The yellow guy is not Geoff. This photo is just a fake role-play photo. But they ended up throwing me into the sea for the 2nd time.

I know you know that I ended in the sea. Obviously.

Since I'm wet, everybody decided to jump into the sea together. Gary didn't bring any extra clothes with him, so he didn't want to get wet. But at the end, we managed to persuade both Gary and Geoff to swim with just their underwear.


Gary's underwear somemore is white in colour. OMG.

I know right. It gets semi-transparent in contact with water. Hoi, don't drool. =P

And he got this two 'supermodel' to pose with. Lucky guy. Damm.

But but but, at least, I get to be their own idea of FHM Cover Model.

Please don't slap me. or Throw me rotten eggs. You throw at them. They say one. =D

Our stomachs then growled like mad after our swim and crazy games in the sea. In one of the games, my penalty was to run to a couple that are taking photos, offer them my help in taking their photo, and when they got ready for the snap, turn the camera and take a shot of myself and run away after returning the camera to them.

Siao eh. I was so so reluctant. This is so evil plus embarrassing ok! But in the end I still did it, but minus the 'take a shot of myself and run away' part. I took one for them before I ran away. Hope they remember my face forever! =P

Anyway, dinner time. Yummy yum yum. Hungry stomachs were heard roaring.

We had dim sum dinner at Geylang. I can't help it but kept looking out for chics. As in chic-kens, as in prostitutes. Woohoo.

As always, our nights are forever young, we continued our night at Z-Zang's place for a game of CashFlow.

It's super addictive! You are addicted to get rich, to get wealthy, to get..omg..damm rich and wealthy!

Getting out of the Rat Race (the circle), and jump onto the fast track and buy up your own dream! After that, you can everyday shake leg, watch people racing like a rat. -.-

Now, I'd love to be in the position that I can shake leg everyday, and I don't care people race like a rat or a cat.

Oh yeah!
