A Very Long Engagement

We watched ‘A Very Long Engagement’ on Sunday. It was a sudden decision to catch a movie. Wanted to watch ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ but they left the first row available.

A Very Long Engagement is a French movie about how a war separate the young couple after their engagement. Mathilde, the young lady, deeply believes that her fiancée is still alive even others have given up. Through little clues here and there, she starts her search for her fiancée, who has disappeared from the trenches of the Somme during World War One.

I thought i’ll tear. Nah… I din. But as i turn and walk out of the cinema, i saw a seat full of crumble tissues, i burst out into big laughter. Wonder which idiot cry. Hahaha~

Took a day off from my work. Watched the Oscar Awards, did some running, ironing and clearing my wardrobe. Hmm… Sense of fulfilment. Heez~

The Grey Grey Sky

Wonder how long can one feel demoralise?

The feeling of the sky is always grey and cloudy when it is actually sunny and bright. The feeling of being strong but yet so strengthless. The feeling of you own your life, but others own you.

Not easy being a human eh? (o.O)


Another great movie by Keanu Reeves. Movie about exorcism, human, demons and angels. Good visuals. It gets into the plot very quickly, and you get to see creatures at the first 10 minutes. Some part of it is hilarious, definitely worth a laugh. But 1 lame flaw that kills the image of an angel. Duh~

I love all these fantasy genre of movies. But it just makes me uncomfortable each time I finish them. I hate the feeling of being “brain-washed”, and keep my brain all occupied with flying angels, demons appearing in my mirror while washing my face, bio-zombies pushing their ways up from the stairs and out from the lifts. Man~ There is a likelihood that I will suffer from mental disorder one of these day.

I hate to be reminded of the number of days I have on this earth. The feeling of uncertainty to the world after your last breathe is enough to make me toss around the bed throughout the nite. Once she told me, you fear because you have things that are not accomplished. Pretty true isn’t it?

Origins of Valentine’s Day

Every February we celebrate Valentines Day by giving flowers, candy and cards to those we love. You may be wondering, “Who is St. Valentine”?

Legend has it that Valentine was a priest who served during third century Rome. There was an Emperor at that time by the name of Claudius II. Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those that were married. With this thought in mind he outlawed marriage for young men in hopes of building a stronger military base. Supposedly, Valentine, decided this decree just wasn’t fair and chose to marry young couples secretly. When Emperor Claudius II found out about Valentine’s actions he had him put to death.

Another legend has it that Valentine was an imprisoned man who fell in love with his jailor’s daughter. Before he was put to death he sent the first ‘valentine’ himself when he wrote her a letter and signed it ‘Your Valentine’, words still used on cards today.

Another valentine gentleman you may be wondering about is Cupid (Latin cupido, “desire”). In Roman mythology Cupid is the son of Venus, goddess of love. His counterpart in Greek mythology is Eros, god of love. Cupid is often said to be a mischievous boy who goes around wounding both gods and humans with his arrows, causing them to fall in love.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all and my dear~ (^_^)

Happy Chinese New Year

Without fail, every chinese new year, i’ll hear stories of those unfilial sons and daughter-in-laws.

The number of unfilial ones is increasing and continue to live in their unfilial, selfish ways, but the good one is never being appreciated. Bastard…

Shall We Dance


This weekends is rather a busy one. Every chinese has been working on their spring cleaning and chinese new year goodies buying. There is no exception for my family as well…

Woke up at 8am in the morning and was regret to find that i was late for work. Erm… It’s a false alarm. I don’t work on saturdays. Head straight to my bed again till my parents dig me up to go Taman Jurong’s Sheng Song. Spend the morning there to buy those goodies and packet drinks. No doubt, it is definitely crowding.

Started to clear the shoe racks outside, wash the flowers stand and floor. I feel the strains in my back and so, i decided to pull out the long hose out to the corridor instead of carrying pails of water out. Stupid me… I forgot to turn the tap off before connecting the hose to it. In the end, i wet half of my kitchen and whole of myself. Luckily my parents were not at home, if not they will nag at me.

Decided to take a rest, entertain myself with Alice In The Wonderland. Nah~ This is my second time watching it. And i never tahan till the 30 minutes benchmark. I fall asleep again. Conclusion is, i did not bake any cake as i suppose to, neither did i clean the rest of the rooms. Duh~

Had little coffee chats with Bong and my dad late at nite. Erm… What a cold nite it is. Ah choo~


We watched Shall We Dance at Marina Square. Somehow i like the idea of having extreme personalities and different living lifestyles while you are at and after work. Just like Richard Gere in the movie who leads an ordinary lawyer’s life. He had a happy family but realised his life is so boring and dead. Everyday in the train, he would passby this dance studio, noticing Jennifer Lopez standing by the windows in deep thoughts. From there, he decided to give it a try on dancing. Slowly, he emerged and had his passion for dancing grows and blossoms. Heart-warming yet hilarious. Most importantly, you don’t feel as though you are rushing from one scene to another. Relatively slow but comfortable pace.

Met Geargina, Zhi Ming and her family at Marina’s carpark. She shouted, but i can’t figure out who the person is. Lester even mistook her as his mother’s friend. Hohoho~

We headed to Orchard for more shopping. Plan to eat Wen Dong Ji’s chicken rice for dinner but we ate too much junk food on our way. We tried Pepsi’s Fire and Pepsi’s Cold. Yup~ You got that gush of gases all up to your nose.

I was hooked with Sex And The City ever since the Pangkor trip. I still remember bong and me cooped up in the room most of our nites to watch HBO. And now, i have almost completed season 1. Each and every episode is so interesting. The topic is interesting, the conclusion is interesting, the quotes are interesting.

Police Academy

My younger sister’s boyfriend was enlisted to Police Academy 31st January.

Heard him complaining about his food there over the phone. I thought these were the normal stuff the freshies will complain. Only till yesterday nite, my sister showed me all the smses he typed. He goes:

“Dear, when thinking of you makes me feel like crying. ”

“Dear, i really feel like crying but then i can’t. When i hear your voices, i feel like crying. My eyes all turn red. But i must hide.”

“Dear, now i’m inside, i find that i love you a lot.”

“Dear, i bought you a red color diary for you to write down the days without me…”

Man~ Poor boy… This is the first time he expresses his soft side to my sister. I see liao also gei xim. I was trying to help him to get familiarise with the parade commands also. He keeps gana in the day. Rather demoralising…

Prepartaion For Chinese New Year


Wake up damn early just to go for the shoe fair at Suntec City. Duh~ I thought how big it will be. But nah~ It’s just a small function room and nothing suits me.

Had a breakfast cum lunch at Cedele… Heez~ The bread and soup is nice nice nice. Feel rather cosy to have breakfast nowadays, coz i usually sleep till the sun scorch my backside. Heez~

Do some grocery shopping at Carrefour for cheesecake ingredients. Today is ‘Low Can Cook, So Can You’. First time trying out by myself, dunno whether it works anot.

Struggle a little to find all the kitchen utencils. Plus a little mistake here and there, finally finish everything by 6pm. Nite time, we help out to make pineapple tarts for chinese new year. Nice experience.


Went Kenny’s house for house-warming party. Spend about 10 to 15 min just to look for his block. Rather confusing way of numbering the estates. Saw a number of familiar faces from the poly. Being showed around the apartment, i still like his room best. With the walls painted in purple-blue colour, i can sleep soundly quickly. But we also coope up in the room most of the time. Heez~

Returning back to home, we start doing little spring rolls with pork floss for new year. Not enough ingredients… Shall continue tomorrow, the day after tomorrow and the day after the day after tomorrow.


And as for today… I overslept in the bus again.

Last but not least, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BONG… Make a wish~ (^_^)
