We are all somewhat damaged, and in that realization we are beautiful.

Russell is my hero!

Russell's interview from
“Because I have to put these kids in their place. I’m not done playing just yet!"

"I want to challenge myself. You know, I wanna go out there and prove that I can manipulate people. I really can get in people's heads and make them do what I want them to do. And that's exactly what I did. So, I thought that I could do it, and now I just know I could.

I've seen almost every single episode and you know, I'm the one sitting on the couch at home howling at the TV and said, 'what the hell are they thinking? You know, they need to do this, they need to do that!' So, when I got the call, I was pretty excited about it.

I think some people are gonna like me, but most people are gonna hate me. I played how I thought I should play. Everything I've done, everything, even if I was vindictive, I did it strategically. I didn't do anything on purpose that I didn't know what the results were gonna be. So, everything that I did, was a strategic plan. I could care less what people think about me. Because I went there to play the game.

The first time, I went to teach myself a lesson. And now, I'm going to teach all these brats a lesson!

You know, it took them nineteen seasons to find me. Nineteen times. They finally find someone who could dominate this game, and if they think that a bunch of all-stars are gonna come here and play with me, they got another thing coming. I'm gonna run their heads like I ran the first ones! ain't gonna be no competition. I tell you right now. I'm gonna walk through it."

Wooooo! I love, love, love Russell! ;)

Tired but excited!

Howdy, all! What's the crack?

My friend always laughs at me whenever I say, "what's the crack?" He thinks I sound like a drug-dealer. Or a black person. The latter, I don't really mind since the only phrase I could come up with to get that effect is 'yoooooo' and that couldn't be more unnatural coming from a 5'2 Asian girl.

Fact #1. I just had myself measured up and my official height is 5'6 with heels on. So yeah, I'm short.

Fact #2. I came to a bank last Friday to open a new account and after a few minutes chatting up with the bank officer, he point-blanked asked my age. When I said 23, he looked surprised and replied, "Oh really? When you first came in, I thought you were just 18.."

Anyway, you may think it is a good thing that I look younger than my age. I guess some people may say it's a compliment. But I don't like it. Enough said.

Oh wow! I've been working all weekend, and it's nice to have a day off today. Aside from work, there's not much things to tell. I'm very excited of this new freelancing opportunity, though. I'll fill you in on that later when everything is confirmed, alright? But yeah, I'm very excited!

As for my real work. Bleh. It has its ups and downs. One thing to be happy about though, I finally got my visa, and to say that I'm super relieved is an understatement. Woooo, I can't wait to start planning and rearranging my life now. I'm psyched about the future!

Okay, I'm gonna stop with the mushiness. This must be the result from reading too many motivational books. Not that I'm complaining! Anyway, pictures time!

With my favorite colleagues! (Actually, everyone in my office is super, super nice!)

Homey steamboat dinner.

Dinner with babe at Timbre. :)
True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable.

Sneaking a picture while working at Suntec last weekend.

And another one ;)

Sorry I've been a bleh about this blog lately! Ugh, I wish I'm more of a multi-tasker! But anyway, hope you all have a nice day. I'm gonna grab some lunch and enjoy my day off as much as humanly possible!

quote of the day

It's hard to wait around for something you know might never happen; but it's even harder to give up when you know it's everything you want.

the geek in me.

Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life. :)

from The Notebook

It’s the possibility that keeps me going… and though you may call me a dreamer or fool or any other thing, I believe that anything is possible.

font? =p

Last week I went to visit a bridal boutique to interview a designer. I haven't yet received my personal name card at that time, so I took a general office card and wrote my own name and email address there for me to give out.

When I gave the card to the lovely owner at the end of our interview, he looked at it for a while and said to me,

"What an interesting font..."

My colleague and I burst out laughing and I said, "That's my handwriting actually!"

quote of the day

What I've learned is not to change who you are, because eventually you’re going to run out of new things to become.

tomorrow is another day.

I'm having a terrible day at work today. Things just didn't seem to be going my way, and I found myself staring at the blank cursor on Microsoft Word because words were failing me; I couldn't find the inspiration to write the things that I was supposed to write. Normally it would just take me a short while and I could get some writings done in a day, but it just seemed so heavy and difficult today.

My boss also didn't neglect to point out a mistake that I did. Well, of course she didn't.

As my spirit deflated when I finally arrived home, I browsed through my favorite blogs and came across this beautiful quote that seemed to speak right to me. At least, that's how I felt.

"Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."

And how true it is. Inevitably, every job has its ups and downs and mistakes are bound to be made. What good does it do for me to think and be stressed over it? It's all strictly business anyway.

So, for everyone who's also having a bad day today, don't worry. There's always another day. So smile and forget today. I'm lucky I can go home to a warm, loving family that never fails to make me feel better just by being themselves.

Survivor Fan

"Tomorrow we make our apologies, tonight we make our move."

- Tom Westman on Survivor: Heroes vs Villains.

I dislike all the members in the Heroes tribe except for Tom. He's the single most decent and honorable player there, and I'm really upset to see him get eliminated. Stupid b****es and dodos.

That quote is powerful so I shall leave you with it. Good night :)

9:15 am

You may think that climbing up 6 storeys of stairs is a good idea of exercise.

Well. Not when you are sleepy at 9 in the morning and caffeine-deficit. I would argue that it could even be dangerous. Shut your eyes for one second and you may roll down those stairs like a doughnut. Lose a split moment of concentration and you may end up with half your leg. Or brain.

See, it’s not a good idea to take the stairs to the office every morning.

But the elevator in my office building is under renovation, so if you don’t want to take the cargo lift (which is really in poor and scary condition), you are left with no other choice but take the damn stairs.

At least give the girl a plate of McD’s big breakfast first, will ya?

Quote of the Day

A guy and a girl can be just friends, but at one point or another, they will fall for each other. Maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late, or maybe forever.

Random catch-up.

I feel good starting work again! And with all the wedding fairs coming up, plus the website and the magazine, it sure is gonna be a packed month, and for once I'm not complaining. Bring it on!

I guess I can talk a little more about my time in Jakarta, but there really isn't much to say at all. Most of the time I'm with my dad and I realize I'm getting more and more like a kid whenever I'm around him. I wonder if it's just a way to compensate a loss of a parental figure, and now since Dad is the only one I've got, I'm scared of losing him.

It's good that now he's busy with his activities at the sport club and travelling with his friends. I'm down with everything that keeps him occupied, and we'd always love it when he comes to visit. Blah, I so have an Oedipus complex. Okay, not that extreme.

I'm excited about life now! And I'm so grateful I have amazing friends to share it with. This year is gonna be better, I can feel it.

Have a great week ahead, guys!

You are the waves; I am the ocean.

Why do we love the sea? It is because it has some potent power to make us think things we like to think.

Will write again, soon! =)

Two words:

I'm back!!!! ♥ ♥
