"Your blog is now so boring!!"

HEY!

You think every single day of your life is filled with exciting police car chases ending with precarious cliffs and then sailing your pirate boat over turbulent choppy waters is it??

LIFE GOT BORING DAYS THEN BLOG ALSO WILL HAVE BORING DAYS LA!!

Idiots.

I'd blog again when I got something interesting to write about.

Would also appreciate it if people who know where to buy garden swings let me know, wanna get one for the new place.

I WANT IT WHITE AND ENTWINED WITH GREEN VINES!!!



Chio!!

AH! I thought of something interesting to write about!!!

INSULTS THAT DON'T WORK!!!!!!

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE??

Wanna throw insults at me to break me down? Perhaps, also stop me from blogging so that I can't lead the perfect life I am leading right now? To throw in a bonus, maybe also kill myself in the process?

NO, NOT GONNA WORK.

Besides the usual no-thinker insults like,

- I am fat
- I am boring
- I am ugly


recently there are also some new interesting insults I have received:



1) I stay in a HDB flat.

Errrrrrr....... And so I stay in a 3-room hdb flat cos my family is not rich. SO WHAT?

Honestly, if you think about it, so rich for WHAT? People will keep trying to borrow money from me lor!

I then don't want that sort of burden. I think it's way better to act poor. =D

LOL... It's so funny that people would tell me stuff like they stay in some shittyass private house and I am inferior to them.

Trying to justify your life now aren't you?

Why I wonder? Is it because you are ugly and lead a damn sad life? I won't trade a beautiful house for that. =)



2) Mike will dump me soon

Yes, he will definitely listen to you guys and dump me.

That is why he had forsaken everything that is familiar to him in the US, got a mass reduction in his expected US salary, and come to Singapore to live in our terrible weather.

;)



3) My neh nehs are very small.

NABEH NEH SMALL ALSO KENA!

BIG say I look like slut, SMALL then say I airport - I can never win lor.



Whatever, you guys. Comments disallowed, don't bother leaving any, they won't be approved.

Good day!!

NUFFNANG!!

Advertorial

For those of you who thought I just wrote some gibberish as my title, well, you are horribly mistaken!

Nuffnang actually means Real Cool/Good in Jafaikan, in which I have no idea what Jafaikan is, so it is still kinda gibberish.

But good gibberish.

Thus begins the story of Nuffnang.com.sg.

Some months ago, my friend Ming gave me a call, saying he would like to treat me (+ Mike whom he also wants to meet) to a meal to discuss a business idea he has.

I was a bit jaded about people wanting to share "business ideas" with me, but Ming was very persistent and insisted on treating us at his (dad's) country club + picking us up so I didn't reject him... haha.

When we met up, he told me an idea that I actually thought of before: An agency for bloggers.

Well, KINDA like an agency you know... The idea is that to get all the bloggers together and sell their combined hits to advertisers - this way, even the small bloggers get a share of the advertising pie. :)

Xiaxue = 30,000 daily hits = Advertisers think it's too little for big scale advertising

Xiaxue + hundreds of bloggers with 200 daily hits = 100,000 daily = Advertisers pay


But there's so much involved in this, like how much each blogger should get, how you know how much hits a blogger gets anyway, and it's not even known if advertisers would be interested because this is not tried before, etc...

SO...

I thought Ming was just talking out of his ass, albeit in a very excited dreamy tone.

(Sorry la Ming, it did sound like a ridiculously grand plan what!)

Two months later, Nuffnang Malaysia, Asia's first blog advertising agency, was launched.



Hundreds of Malaysian bloggers rushed to sign up (1,700 so far), and Nuffnang was even the 4th most searched topic on technorati at one point!

(BTW Nuffnang is founded by Ming, who is Singaporean, and his friend Timothy, who is Malaysian, so the company is half M'sian and half S'porean.)

When Ming told me about me, I can't help but say "Wow...", because honestly, lots of people have smashing ideas, but how many of them do execute it?

And Ming, being resourceful as usual, actually had Nike Singapore as his first advertiser!!

Now, the top earning Malaysia blogger (Ahem Mr Sia!) is getting like RM1,000 per week, and the average small-time bloggers get like 20 buck per week too!!

BU HUI SHIOK???????

If I get 1,000 per week hor I will be damn rich can?! I'd be earning like, like, at least 6k a month????????

(I said at least - that's not to be saying I earn only 2k per month, idiots)

I KNOW ALL OF YOU WILL WANT TO BE MY FRIEND!!

Must start to pay taxes already! Buy car! Learn to drive first! Get platinum credit card! IPL armpits!!

Back to serious topic.

Ming's philosophy for the company is that it is not only getting money for bloggers (as well as earning a bit on the way la), it is also BY BLOGGERS FOR BLOGGERS.


Their little side aim is to forge a stronger community among the bloggers.

Although I despise a lot of the Malaysian bloggers who signed up, I must still say it's a good effort.


The hard-working Nuffnang team


250 Nuffnangers were invited to go watch Pirates of the Caribbean 3 in KL yesterday!! (BTW it's a bit slow, the movie. I watched it in Singapore yesterday with Mike)

Hiyah!

To cut the long story short, I've just got good news for you mediocre bloggers!! (I know, I am so deliciously arrogant)

No longer do you have to sigh and complain about how you can't earn from your meagre amount of hits!

As long as you have more than 20 unique hits a day, you can get a share of the pie too!!

Of course your share will not be as big as mine la teeheeheehee.

If you want to try signing up, there is even a chance of winning a PSP!



Shiok or not?

You can sign up here!

You guys can thank me later for the recommendation. =D

p/s: Yes I know that's two advertorials in a row. Although you are doing nothing but reading a blog you think might be updated with something interesting, you still feel like you have the right to tell me I am cheating you. Shut up, I'll be updating my NY pictures soon. Been fucking busy.

Hurray!!! Blogger just announced that they now auto-save my posts!!

Anyway, sorry for taking so long to update, between blogging for Stomp, conquering Super Mario (world 6 now) and my daily bummer activities, I've got like no inspiration + time to blog!

I need to blog more!!!

Even the NY photos I've not edited!!!!!!!

I know, I am such a horrible procrastinator. :( :(

I actually woke up that day feeling very mean, and I started writing a blog entry titled "Top 5 most disgusting people in the Singapore blogosphere".

THE ENTRY IS AWESOME.

It feels so good to insult people!!

Needless to say, this will start raging a "blog tsunami" as Wanyi calls it, but I am afraid of offending certain people, and that's why that AWESOME post is not being put online yet.

Hahaha... I know that now you are dying to find out who those 5 people are!!

Sigh... There are soooooooo many disgusting bloggers around. (Attempts to link to these people or suggest their website/nicks in the comments will be deleted - don't want to give anyone any excess clicks just yet)


Update on my life: Mike just signed for the rental of a nice little place in Changi, and I think I'd be staying over pretty often!!

The place has two bedrooms, one of which is HUGE (like two normal rooms), so Mike has agreed to let me put all my nonsensical fluffy pink stuff in there - my computer, make-up, accessories, etc.

And this room, I loosely call "The Princess Room".

I can't wait to decorate it!!!

As well as the rest of the house! Thank god for Ikea Tampines.

FRIENDS CAN COME OVER TO PLAY MJ AND SWIM AND BBQ!!!!!!!!!! *faints* Super happy.

Rental prices are fucking crazy-high nowadays!!!!! Dingy 3-room (which means actually 2 rooms) hdbs are going for $1,200 per month - and these hdbs are fucking old and gouldy and unfurnished and ugly too!!

Condos seems to be a better deal, going for $1,600 - $1,800 at the lower end tier.

Isn't it mad???! Property prices are mad recently! I might turn into a real estate agent soon.

I KNOW! I sound so sophisticated and adult-like right, when I talk about property rates? Mai siao siao hor, I am very smart one you know!! Muahaha!

So yeah, you east-siders will be seeing me more often now!

I hate east-siders. I've stayed in the West all my life (Clementi, Boon Lay, Queensway, Teban), and for some reason east-side people are CONSTANTLY insulting the west!!

WHY THEY SO LIKE THAT ONE AH?

They always say west very industrial and ugly and under-developed, and how east side is better coz you guys have the stupid sea and better places to eat food blah blah.

Full of nonsense.


HOLLAND VILLAGE = WEST = Nice and expensive place

BUKIT TIMAH = WEST = QUEEN ASTRID PARK = Most expensive place in Monopoly


And plus plus the west has science centre and erm, zoo, and erm, ice-skating rink!! Hmpf!

Shuyin says everyone is being boh liao because Singapore is way too small to have disparities between east and west side, hahaha...

She is only saying that coz she stay North, which is the most sucky of all!!!


Muahahaha...! I am joking. I am trying to start a who-stay-where-better-war.

Anyway, Gillian sent me this email, which I thought is super hilarious!!!

Online Shopping

Advertorial

In my teenage days, when I couldn't afford to buy clothes from shops that have to pay for their rent, I bought a lot of clothes from Yahoo auctions!

Not to mention that then I haven't started blogging yet I had a lot of time online. :D

Some of the clothes turned out ok, but some... GRRRRR! Makes me boil!

Once, I bought a bikini set which claimed to be new but had some stains on the bottom at you-know-where! Ewww! I don’t want to put someone's stain on me can?!

And searching for the clothes you like was tedious since auctioneers liked to label their clothes with everything irrelevant from Nokia to sex toys.

Which is why, I think it's a good idea to have an online clothes shop where you can just scroll and scroll on, browsing super a lot of clothes – which are guaranteed new with no gross stains!

Http://www.papergirlsshop.blogspot.com

Not to mention that their models are really quite pretty too, so boys can click and see eye candy as well. ;)

(Digressing, I've seen other online shops, and they always shoot their photos with an amateur camera with models having their heads cut out of the frame. I think that's kinda gross coz it makes me think the headless model is wearing the exact same piece I am buying, and I can't even see how she looks like!)

A lot of the clothes there are kinda Korean-looking and pretty chic - ranging from shorts to tops to skirts to dresses etc.

The prices are really affordable too, from $10+ to $40+ (for dresses) - and I really like the way they pair up the clothes in so many different photos so you can have an idea of how to wear the apparel best!

I got to choose 3 pieces from them:


LEOPARD PRINT

Low V-neck spaghetti top with leopard prints.
Velvet material with straps adjustable. Lace lining at the top








Details

I'm working towards my bombshell goal! Really like the diamantes on the lining - it ensures extra attention on me. Ha! I'm such an attention-whore.


BABY'S BREATH
Singlet style pullover
material velvet, with fold in hem at the bottom


The empire-cut is flattering for your boobs, and yet the dress/top is flowy enough for you to eat a cow and not look like a cow.


Details

The velvet sounds like it would be unsuitable for Singapore's weather, but it's actually very soft and thin. Perfect for a casual date!

Sigh, I wish Mike would bring me on more dates.


CARDIGAN
Body hugging material made from stretchy cotton
Easy to match with for all occasions







Peach pink cardigan. I chose this coz girls can never have enough jackets! This is just thick enough to prevent freezing in a cinema, and thin enough to be squeezed into our handbags!

Goes well with basic-colour tops/dresses, or I guess you can wear it by itself if you wish to. *cough* slut *cough

It even matches with the wall behind, haha



Nice right!

Except, of course, I cannot pose like those models lar, they are professionals can. Plus, I am severely sunburnt, so pardon the horrible skin.

The most annoying thing about purchasing stuff online is to find out later that it is completely not the same as the photo you thought it looks like, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that the clothes I chose were exactly like the pictures shown!

I haven't bought anything from online clothing shops before, because I always think that if they are not going to deliver it to me after I pay, I won't be able to do anything about it.

I can't even burn their shop down because it doesn't physically exist!

But Papergirlsshop is a registered company, so I don’t think problems like that will occur. :D

The items are all ready stocks, which means that they are not just ordering it from their suppliers AFTER your purchase... which also means that you get your items fast! They will be sent out within 3 working days.

If you are unhappy with the product, you can always send it back for an exchange of size or design (but not money la, you think what).

Not Singaporean? Not to worry, if you live anywhere with an address (the postman is willing to travel to), your clothes can be sent to you - but you have to purchase at least 3 pieces for international shipping.


Payment can be made via bank transfer too (personally I think it's safer and more efficient)!! No more using credit cards or paypal unless you want to!

Happy shopping girls~!!! And boys too, if erm, that's your cup of tea... Oh! And so you say you are buying it for your... girlfriend! I see. Nope, not a cross dresser, didn't think for a minute you were.

The link once again.

Sorry for the lack in posts!!Have been very busy with my new gadgets recently, which includes my new tamagotchi and nintendo DS lite!!!





Aren't they just bloody gorgeous and cute?

I know, those of you with a penis and perhaps even some without a penis are probably asking right now,

"What the fuck do you want the DS lite for? YOU HAVE A BLOODY PSP!!!"


Which is true, and I am ashamed of myself.

I bought the DS lite ($320 inclusive of adaptor and 1gb memory card, plus games - and Mike kindly sponsored $150 for my "third" birthday present) solely because.......

It is beautiful.


And pink.



"And so is the PSP!", you exclaim indignantly. But but... The psp is not in a shade of pink that I like!!!

I know, I'm so ashamed of myself. I saw the nintendo AFTER Algoco kindly sponsored me the psp, and it is in BABY PINK!

That's like my favourite colour!

I didn't actually find out before this that somehow, within simply "PINK", which is my favourite colour, there are actually shades that I perfer...

Some which I don't like as much (ie the PSP's bandung pink), and some which (ie baby pink) makes me go crazy and spend irrational amounts of money.

Sigh. I am so superficial yet so complicated.

I told myself that I am not going to succumb to a stupid colour's beckoning, but it's all the stupid Tim's fault, he said that the Nintendo is more of a girl's gaming machine than the PSP, which has all the manly RPG (dull!) and violent (super dull) games...

"And plus," Timmy said, ponging something during mahjong, "The nintendo can play Crash Bandicoot and all those."

*wide-eyed* I love Crash Bandicoot.




And so I bought the nintendo.


Is indeed very beautiful


Comes with a dangerous stylus

My justification is that the nintendo is smaller, it has stupid girly games, and also...

- A 1 gig memory card (which is way cheaper than Sony's memory sticks) in the nintendo can store 20 games, vs only 5 games on a 2 gig memory stick in the PSP.

- Nintendo has Super Mario, which is about as good as any other new stupid RPG game.

And besides, who says that we can't use two portable gaming, erm, thingys anyway (what are those called?!)?

I'd use the psp for movies and mp3s during hardcore boredom (ie on long-haul plane rides) and bring the nintendo out during normal days.

Not to worry, I still love you, my sweet PSP!!!!!!!

As it turns out, Mike tried getting Crash Bandicoot for me on nintendo, but it appears they only have it for the PSP.

If you can find it for the nintendo I'd appreciate it if you send it to me!!! Ditto other stupid girly games. :D

As for the tamagotchi... It is cute! I missed it since my secondary school days... Qingqing and I both bought one, and you can let the tamagotchi mate and stuff! And they give birth to babies! ^-^

Oh gross I just typed an act cute smiley.

I'm reverse-aging inside and definitely normally-aging outside.

Back to Wanbao.

SOOOOOOOOO annoying!!!

Recently, it seems that the amount of people looking and pointing (and in teenage situations, laughing as if it is very funny) at me have increased 3-fold.


-_-

Usually I am ok with being gawked at, and I understand it comes with the package of being famous (which I can't say I dislike, because besides air, water, and food, attention comes in as an essential for me to live), but man, these few days it has been serious gawking.

I can't walk ten minutes in public without being harassed.

Just that day, Mike and I were in a toy shop, you know, randomly looking at something, and bless us, through the shop window a group of teenagers walked pass, and one of them loudly exclaimed "Oh my god it's Xiaxue!!!" to which his friends exclaimed, "Where where where?!"

INSIDE THE BLOODY TOY SHOP HEARING EVERYTHING YOU SAID, IDIOT!!!

Next time don't be so indiscreet can or not?! Even if I am a chicken I can hear you lor. I say chicken because I think chickens can't hear very well. If I were a bat, which I think can hear very well indeed, I would have been deafened.

I rolled my eyes at Mike (I swear this was the 10th time that day I had my stupid internet nickname shouted out loud in my face. It's not even funny anymore), but we were cornered.

The toy shop only had a tiny entrance, and the massive group of teens quickly filtered their way into the shop, leaving me with either the choice of being gawked at while pretending to continue looking at toys, or shove my way through them, all while still being gawked at.

So I remained inside while they gawked.

Some smartass guy in the group decided to loudly announce, "Hey, you want to look at what in this shop ah? Which toy ah?" or something to that effect - apparently it is meant to make it look like they came into the shop on their own accord.

I DON'T CARE IF YOU GAWK AT ME, PLEASE DON'T PRETEND CAN OR NOT!!!!! Very irritating leh!!

Please, just smile at me, and I promise I will smile back.


If you hate me and don't wish to smile at me, can also stick out your tongue at me or throw something in my general direction, just as long as you don't hit my nose or mess up my hair (although I don't suggest doing rude things to me when Mike is around because he is quite violent at times and very protective).

Or or... You can PRETEND to smile at me, and when I smile back at you, you can snigger, thinking to yourself, "Stupid bitch thinks I like her but I actually hate her, muahahahaha evil laughter."

Smart.

And then like two days ago, I was at Tampines Mall eating at Phin's, when a group of people walked through a door next to my table.

At this point, I was trying to eat a corn on the cob, and as you all know, eating a corn ain't very glamourous.

It was a balmy day, and I was being spacey.

As the people streamed through the door, I people-watched, feeling quite at peace with the world.

And then this one guy walked through the door. He did a double take, and turned backwards to whisper something into his female companion's ear.

The whisper made her start and immediately look around frantically for her object of interest: Me mid-bite eating a corn and looking straight at her.

Man, that was awkward and horrifying.

I had to put down the corn and put on a dignified look, pretending that didn't just happen.



Sigh.


The useless trash paper that caused all these:

If you can read Chinese it is really super funny...


Cover page

It is so expected of them to do a cheap trick like putting a picture of a car crash right next to the sluttiest photo of me they can find.

Oooh, are we supposed to conclude that a slutty chick died in a car crash? Interesting!

I don't know why my paper had a spot on my cheek. Maybe to add to the slut factor?


Page 1:



Text:






Entire article completely lifted off my blog, and written to sound as if the reporter was there during the fight to witness everything - except without a sense of humour.

Page 2:


They say I want to kick the corpse to release my anger!!
That just sounds fucking funny in Chinese.


Hahahaha!





...

Seriously stupid. How can ANYONE mistaken what I meant to be serious? It's bloody sarcastic!



Haha! They made such a big deal of me rejecting to be interviewed!

This is what actually happened:

Joan (my manager): "Hey Wendy, some Wanbao reporter called, say want to interview you about the JB incident, you want to call her back at 6319xxxx?"

Me: "Huh?? What time now?"

Joan: "10am."

Me: "Siao! So early wake me up.. where got people so early wake up one... Can tell her I call her back at 4pm can or not?"

Joan: "Her deadline is 12pm."

Me: "Then don't want la, very lazy... zzzzzzz"

Joan: "..."

They made it sound like I was very ashamed of being found out about my dirty incident and was hiding somewhere crying my heart out, haha... Actually I was just sleeping.

And lastly,



I never knew social suicide = normal suicide!! And neither will I ever believe that anyone will take me seriously when I am soooooooo bloody short and I call myself a "gorgeous supermodel".

Irony, geddit? IRONY!

Hilarious.

Not that I know any better, but isn't the "dao" in the "ta1 xie3 dao4..." written wrongly? Shouldn't it be dao4 li4 that dao? *shrugs*


Normal photos:


A pretty sight greeted jammed drivers on the PIE.

Momo treated Uncle Gregory, Mike, Didi, Shuyin and me to my birthday dinner at East Coast!

Having family, my bff, and boyfriend with me was quite simply all I needed to be perfectly happy. :D

Of course, rainbows help to complete the nice picture too. :)

People ask me how come I'm not upset that I get protrayed on national papers in such a bad light.

Well, it's because I am secure.

People I like like me back, and honestly, who gives a shit about people I don't know liking me or not? They can hate me all they want, I've already got enough people loving me to make me quite very happy. :D

Shuyin and Wanyi came over to my place, as I mentioned:


Shuyin next to my humidifier.

I just keep laughing at this photo, the penguin looks DAMN stupid and Shuyin's like acting disgusted by it.

It looks even more stupid when it's turned on, the water vapour comes out of the beak, haha...


The food they prepared!

Got green curry with chicken, brinjals (both cooked by Shuyin), tea eggs (Wanyi's mom), french loaf and birthday cake!! (both Wanyi buy)!!

For some reason those are the only photos I took, and I didn't take any of Wy or myself. -_- I think it's cause I was being a glutton.

Aren't they just the sweetest? :)

Thank you to everyone else who also sent me a happy birthday greetings via calls, sms, msn, or otherwise. :D

Kelvin and QQ for the carpet and don't know what else, Ming for the kickass speakers, my godma for the angpow, and also my baby...

For the fantastic treat at St Pierre:


Free mini appetizers


Me in the kid-sized Ralph Lauren dress I bought in NYC


Lamb shank


Foie gras

And afterwards, we walked around,


being boh liao...


... and sat down watching people play with
remote-controlled flying bright objects


I am loved!

Hopefully this entry makes up for the lack of those in the past few days.

Oh. And for those of your wondering about the bigass watermark - well, I'm sick and tired of people stealing my photos by chopping off my logo.

If they want to do it, then I'm sorry, they'd have to inevitably link me, or look very stupid with half my face cut off.

p/s: I won si an ke yesterday by zi mo-ing er wan. It was a beautiful, beautiful feeling.
