Updated: Erm, I felt that before you guys go on and on insulting the Xueling person, keep in mind that she is, OR so I heard, dunno if it's true, allegedly, Lee Hsien Yang's sister-in-law.
So you might just have your Singtel bill increase 10-fold mysteriously.
Anyone care to verify my little piece of info?
My friend Joan gave birth to the sweetest little girl!
It's so weird coz I've been seeing her with that big tummy for a long time, and suddenly it hits me that there is a life inside.
Capable of growing into a full adult and actually giving birth herself. Gulp.
I'm gonna steal the baby.
Baby Claire with Mommy!
Just born yesterday (as in yesterday of the day this photo was taken)!
Her little hand is sooooo tiny!
And warm and soft and... oh my womb is talking, ignore it.
Evil plots of babies to make you give birth:
The typical finger grab.
Had to grab her from Joan for a while!
She finally opened her eyes... :D
And what a cute turf of hair!
The haze has been going on for the past few days, yet all of us still have to go to work and face the dull toxic air, like it or not.
Well not all, some of us. Ahem.
People have been complaining about their various ailments, and the most common of all should be sore eyes.
I feel more for contact lens users... Now, besides having the usual debris and protein build-up, causing the lenses to dry up and be thoroughly uncomfortable, contact lens users still have to deal with extra smoke from the haze?!
Lucky for me, I am sponsored with Complete Blink Lens Drops. :D
The product description says that "(Blink) is the only eye drop in the market that has hyaluronate, which draws moisture to the eyes a 1,000 times more efficiently."
I don't know what that means, but my eyes really feel a lot better when I use Blink after a long night of mahjong. =)
Fits perfectly in my emergency pouch
Especially now when there our PSI problem, better bring eyedrops with you all the time in case your eyes get dry - better than having sore eyes, huh?
Available at leading pharmacies and optic outlets. Costs $8.50 per 10ml bottle.

I love the funny bunny and cat and don't know what the other one is!
Decoration artist: Junne.
The thing on her head supposed to be a crown.
Decoration artist: Junne.
There are 3 headless people. Can you spot them?
Decoration artist: Me
The yellow backdrop fell on my head as the photo was taken.
Due to my talent in taking photos, I continued smiling nonplussed.
Also notice how I managed to make this accident of a photo look nice.
Decoration artist: Junne.
She called me a lao siao!
Decoration artist: Me
I am pretty and Junne is a tyrant! Roarrr!
Junne and I went to PS's neoprint place and paid $10 for these! We were really happy coz it seemed like there something wrong with the machine, and the time limit for decorating is.... infinity!
So we stood there for like half an hour just adding the graphics on and on, was so fun :]
As you can see, all the Junne decorations are messy and cluttered while mine are super artisitic and lovely.
Nothing interesting in my life currently, except I have 3 ulcurs in a neat row on my lower lip. It's making my lips look very full and also reduces my appetite, so I can't say I really dislike them.
I woke up this morning, lolling around in bed all sweaty and uncomfortable, with an unreasonable hatred for Indonesia.
I know not all Indonesians are muthafucking selfish cb tree-burners, but there is no where else I can direct my anger at, so fuck that stupid country for its stupid lax laws and culture of bribery.
It's ridiculous that anybody, let alone a country, can be so self-centred and irresponsible, affecting the health, economy and aircon-usage of so many other people just for its own petty gains. Update me, have they signed the bloody anti-haze contract yet?
I saw on the newspaper yesterday that some Indonesian minister or something was apologizing to Malaysia and Singapore for the damn haze, and all I wanted to do was to slap him. Sorry?! Sorry doesn't do any shit! Stop apologizing like a fool and go do something about it, ok?
Indonesia should not be allowed to plant anything from now on.
I don't care if we have to pay more more for rice or whatever it is they plant for us, but I suppose if they don't have field farmers then they won't burn anymore, would they?
NO MORE FARMING. ALL FARMERS SHALL BE PROSECUTED FOR THE CRIMES OF THEIR BOSSES/FELLOW WORKERS.
Some Malaysian minister was also going on on the news that day that Malaysia also urges Indonesia to sign the anti-haze thingy because the haze in KL is so bad (300 PSI at some point. Not that the air there is anywhere near fresh in the first place, but 300!! I will die!!) that Malaysians are all now resentful towards Indonesians (exactly how I feel too), which he thinks is not a good thing.
When our family, all squeezed into one tiny room which is the only one with aircon, we all erupted into angry spurts when he finished his little speech.
"WAH LAU!" Didi exclaimed.
"YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH! Filthy POS!" I shouted, with the vengence of somebody bracing up for a fight with a guy inside the TV.
I was shocked to hear how angry I was, but Malaysia really shouldn't talk like they are innocent sufferers!!! It is known that they have tree-burning histories too, albeit less than Indonesia I suppose.
I hate to sound like a weak shu nu, but man, my eyes are really uncomfortable, and I sneezed around 30 times non-stop just walking from Cineleisure to Youth Park last night.
Breathing feels strangely like there is not enough oxygen, and I really really hated people around me who were still smoking and adding oil to the fire. (ha, punny)
Since I am trapped at home, unwilling to step into the haze and immediately have my eyes water, all I can do is to think of vicious things to do to tree burning countries.
- Every Singaporean will all donate $1 each. We will change this amount of money into the currency whose coins will weigh the most, and drop the coins on the heads of unethical businessmen in Indo/Malaysia.That should kill them pretty bad.
Since they want money so much and are willing to do such unscrupulous actions to get it, we shall give it to them.
- We will create a big funnel vaccumy thing, which will suck all the haze from wherever it comes from, and blow it back at their faces.
- We would blow it at the respective useless govts.
- We will build a giant glass dome over Sumatra, and they can breathe the nice clean air they abused Mother Nature of so kindly providing, turning it into poisonous toxic fumes.
- Every country will thus stop buying any horticulture products from offending countries. Let's see what they burn the damn fields for now.
Ah, but all these are just beautiful dreams.
To Indonesians who did not burn trees but are suffering, I say, what are you staying in that country for? Please try to migrate.
Yesterday was out with Wong and SR and Peiying having a whooping nice dinner at Chicago's steakhouse (in cine).
The steaks there are so nice! $9.90 for a nice big sirloin, and 6 different sauces to choose from!
The wild mushroom sauce is the most absolutely fabulous.
Before and After! Can't really see the difference though.
Went to Holland V at brekos to eat with Kelvin, Tim and Alex.
Lovely macro function.
Alex's tee says "Warning: Lions bite." with a half eaten kiwi bird.
Think I am too blonde, considering visiting my Asian roots again by having black hair.
Since I cannot bloody suntan with the stupid haze I might as well be fair with black hair! What do you think?
Kelvin mostly isn't happy when I start snapping photos of him.
Saw this angmoh guy across the road with the cutest baby ever and I tested my camera's zoom by taking a photo of the BABY!!!!!!
Isn't it so cute and fat and huggable! It is extremely freaky, but I am officially announcing that at the end of year 2006, my maternal instincts have officially kicked in.
I am only 22 leh!
So often I watch Maury's (some American show with defiant sexually addicted teens) with a frown on my face, because all these chicks, like aged 13, say they want to have a baby, and that's why they keep fucking so many boys.
I didn't understand why anyone will want a baby when they are totally incapable of taking care of it and giving it a complete family.
NOW I KNOW WHY. Maternal instincts! It is damn scary and uncontrollable!
Nobody warned me it would happen, it just suddenly did, and I want a baby (Dammit, give me one NOW!) and I have this overwhelming urge to steal other people's babies, especially the blonde ones!
I LOVE BLONDE BABIES!
I am not irrational enough to actually try to conceive one right now, but I still do feel the urge to carry a baby in my arms.
I scared the bejeesus out of Mike when I told him I wanted him to marry me now and I want a baby.
I then informed him and I am sick and told him to ignore me whenever I show symptoms of maternal instincts.
It is damn scary. I think I hear my womb lamenting to me sometimes, late at night, that it has been useful since 1995 and have not been used once since. It wantssss to be used.
Kel and Ann
Isaac, shrouded in mystery.
Testing out the night shots! Seems quite ugly to me.
Clash of the yellow hair with the yellow lights.
With Ann's friends.
Am I the only girl in the world left who is tanned?!
Zouk! Vyasa and two Anns.
Me + Kel
With Shuyin, Wanyi, Midori
Who is this guy at the back?! He also seems to be doing kisses
And this video is fucking funny!!!
p/s: You think the haze affects dandruff? I have a sudden attack of it!
Dammit I keep having damn ingrown hairs!
Why the hell do women need to have armpit hair ANYWAY? It's utterly useless and I think we spend a grand total of maybe 1 year of our lives just trying to get rid of it.
Woe betide those women who pluck! I think they spend like 2 years lor. Thank god for epilators and no thanks to damn puberty.
I think God chooses not to be contactable coz he knows that everyone will keep hounding him about his fundamental designing flaws.
Appendixes, for example. At least for armpit hair China men and feminists appreciate it, but appendixes are utterly useless. If I had one less appendix, I think my tummy might get flatter.
Cancer too. Nobody likes cancer and I don't know why He needs to put cancer in this world.
Anyway, I feel like ranting on and on today, so the topic of the day is "Being Female".
I was in the shower just now, and as I looked at the can of Veet standing there, marketed to be appealing to the female aesthetic sense, I just decided it sucks to be a girl.
I woke up this morning with an overwhelming urge to squeeze my inner thigh and found it to be dimpled beyond reason. It's disgusting and fascinating at the same time.
WHEN DID THE DAMN CELLULITE COME?
Was it when I turned 21?
Accompanying the cellulite was a proud vericose vein, all purple and... veiny.
GOD HELP ME I AM ONLY 22!!!!!!!!
You think I'm one of those girls talking cock don't you. HERE:
I know it's just a small vein, but soon its friends will all come out and play.
Where was I? Yup, about how it sucks to be female.
Hairs! We have to do so much for hairs!
Why do females come with leg hair anyway? What use do we have for it? Unless our lao peh is Gillette, which he isn't, leg hair is totally useless.
I have a guy friend, very handsome mind you, who said that once he encounters a girl with pubes he would totally drop the idea of bedding her.
YOU KNOW ONE TIME BRAZILLIAN HOW MUCH OR NOT?!!!!!!
FIFTY BLOODY DOLLARS! And you know how long it takes to grow out? 3 short weeks! And you know how painful it is?!
How to shave such uneven terrains you tell me?! And down there so sensitive, wait cut dio how?!!!
Sucks to be female.
YOU MEN SHOULD STOP BEING SO MEAN AND REQUESTING SO MANY THINGS!
Cannot have hairs, cannot be fat, cannot this one that one.
HOW TO NOT BE FAT?! See tiramisu don't eat ah?! Then we diet, you say we keep talking about dieting very annoying!
As if it's not enough, we are born with a strong impulse for retail therapy, and without a sense of direction.
Speaking of retail therapy, I just spend $2.8k on gadgets for the stupidest reasons.
As you all know, I lost my beautiful metallic pink L1 camera in Thailand, so I tried to find the same camera with no avail, and bought the silver version instead.
It takes marvellous photos, but I started disliking it because it is silver. -_-
I CANNOT STAND UGLY THINGS LAH!
I don't like gadgets being silver or black coz that's so bloody common. Even after covering the camera with diamantes I didn't like it.
So when Ann told me the new Sony Cybershot T10 is out and it's baby pink, I immediately bought it.
$540, comes with 512 memory stick. Gave that to Momo (as well as the old cam, she is horrified by the diamantes), since I have a 1 gig one.
It is supposedly 7.2mp but seriously, it makes almost absolutely no difference from my L1, which 4.1mp and way older. The only difference is that the camera has like a music slideshow (utterly useless I think) and a macro mode which the L1 doesn't have.
So I basically spent 500 bucks on improving just looks. Dang.
But who can resist that baby pink?
So pretty hor! But pretty is not enough, must zhng!
Taken via a very dirty mirror, as you can see
Now it's officially super gorgeous. Nice or not? I stuck the diamantes on myself!
I also spent $20 extra on just the damn accessories.
And then, I am going to US again on the 12th... YOU KNOW HOW MANY FLIGHTS I HAVE TO TAKE?!
FIVE! Five and in between each flight is a few hours of pure waiting!
Lao niang will die of boredom lar!
So... I bought a laptop.
I know NOTHING about laptops and did no research about them (I tried to but gave up after realising that each brand has like 20 variations each) and just chose the prettiest and smallest (and is not too expensive of course).
I tell you hor, buying gadgets in Singapore is a bloody pain in the ass. I used to think that the only place to buy a camera was either Lucky Plaza or Sim Lim, but it turns out that the abovementioned areas has the LOUSIEST SERVICE IN THE WORLD.
I mean it. The last time I bought a camera from Lucky Plaza, the fucker went to get the stock room and returned with the wrong colour. IS IT MY FAULT? He scolded me and asked me to buy the colour he brought back!
Chao turtle! Curse him forever no business.
So anyway, I found the PERFECT place to get your IT purchases.
FUNAN IT MALL!
Don't go to Sim Lim ever again, I say Funan is the best.
The salesmen there are all very well-mannered, and they don't get all aggressive or pissed off if you go to another store to check out prices. There are enough stores for you to get a good price, and a lot of the salesmen are quite cute nerdy ah bengs. Wahaha... I realise the multiple oxymorons. :D
So yes, my lovely laptop and camera are bought there...
Acer 3020 or something!
Very funny, when the salesmen told me about the specifications, I just looked at them and frowned. Up till now I don't know what processor the thing runs on. I do know that it's dual something though! Which is good!
And it has a built-in webcam and is very pretty and white!
Look at the super cute perky baby pink mouse!
The first store I went to quoted me $2240 for the lappie, so I said ok, I'd go check if other stores can gimme cheaper.
Second store said $2240 too, third said $2229, and he will throw me a free mouse!
I went to withdraw money, and on the way to POSB I asked another store for their best price. This rather cute guy said he can match $2229, and throw me a mouse free.
I laughed and told him that's exactly what the previous store said, and I added,
"Ok, which mouse are you going to give me? If your mouse is nicer than that guy's mouse I will buy from you."
He grimaced and said he only has one mouse left and pointed to it. It is dull grey and ugly.
I grimaced too.
The female salesperson was staring at us conversing all this while, and she immediately added, "How about this one?" and pointed to a baby pink mouse.
I smiled at her and paid.
And I think I might be happier about the mouse than the laptop. Yes, just because it is pink. I'm fucking stupid. I cannot help it!
Making the lappie into a princess lappie:
Patience is a virtue.
Crystals cost $50 and 2 hours of tweezering into place. I think I am becoming super professional at this.
Anyway, I bought the crystals at Arab street so stop badgering me.
Adding more! I used a pencil to draw on my laptop! gasp!
Momo also sewn for me a pale pink pouch to put the laptop into! Ci mu shou zhong xian!
I have the most princessy gadgets in the world :D
Picture of me, in case any of you dare to forget how I look like.
