Fucking shitty day

I lost my camera...

The one I have been using since the start of this blog ...

That one pink camera that has brought me all these pictures and the memories. The camera I used for the pictures I took during my birthdays, my friends' birthdays, the photos I took for Today newspaper, and even for Maxim... And now it is gone.

I don't know how I lost it. It was still with me when I last took photos for my CNA interview on Tuesday, and I remember putting it into my bag when I left. Then when I looked back into the bag, it is gone.

I can't find it anywhere.



I sat down to think, and a single tear fell down my face. That camera has been through so much with me, and I loved it so much. Never ever will I find another camera that small and in that perfect shade of pink again. :( And it is still working fine, with NO SCRATCHES on it at all. That's how much I took care of it.

Now it is time for a new camera, and I don't have the money to buy one. I am thinking of getting an Ixus i5, which, at it's cheapest, is $350. I don't have that kind of money!

You guys wouldn't see any photos till I get my new camera I guess. Which is a real pity, because I went to the KM8 (this new club at Sentosa - KM8 PR people you reading this? Send me a VIP card!) party at Sentosa with Eileen (Wee) and Adrian, and I took a secret shot of Eileen's perky butt! In a bikini bottom! But alas. Gone. The camera is gone with my almost new 128mb sony memory stick (which I bought seperately - for $90).

ALRIGHT. Shuyin suggested I do this. Anyone works in a camera company? Sony? Canon? Konica-minota? Anything! I want a digital camera, and I would gladly take a sponsored one. Please, gimme one! Trust me, an infinite amount of people ask me what camera I use, and the advertising is surely worth more money than a measly 300 bucks or so.

CAMERA COMPANY PEOPLE!! U reading this! Me! Want! Camera~!

Haiz.

Or maybe, if only 350 of you 8,000 people each throw me $1, I will be able to get a new cam! I desperately need one. Suddenly, the world is filled with beautiful and interesting things for me to take photos of. =(

Speaking of clubbing, just now I went out for supper at Orchard Hotel with Eileen (wee) and Abigail, and we spoke about that night at km8.

- The rest of this entry is deleted because it infringed on my friend's privacy. I hate feeling oppressed, and I feel so shitty, unwanted, unimportant and shitty, I just feel like crying and crying and crying. Go away. I think I am pms-ing. -

PMS sucks! Good luck with that!

Hey! First comment!!
Sang said…
go back in time and get one for your birthday =P
Oliver said…
GL with that.
J Schnorng said…
Aiyah...best way to get in to members' areas is to have connections with people working there lor. I try never to pay to go clubbing (which is fucking hard, especially if you're a guy, and not famous) but I still usually manage to do ok.

Or maybe I'm just fucking drunk by the time we go in, so I forget that I actually paid. Who knows?
Jolene said…
so how do we throw you $1? let us know, i'm willing.
loveriot said…
Wah poor you!! Hey, I suggest you go to Plaza Singapura and take part in that Perfect 10 Dares Me To thingy!! Maybe I'll get to meet you there and get and autograph!!

LOL.
~$JoY$~ said…
too bad then.
IMAI said…
-echoes Jolene's statement-

yeah, I'd like to offer some help.
Moon said…
Go and earn for it, gal...
rEbElli0us-bLUe said…
poor thing.. dont be sad. how can i throw the $1? tell me? i will be more than willing to do so. Ohh.. by the way, did u get to see any gorgeous looking guys there?
Me said…
try putting a DONATE$1 paypal icon on ur blog? lol~
missforty8 said…
Begging? Poor thing la you..
Neo said…
another alternative would be to transfer $$ to her POSB savings account that she mentioned in one of the previous posts
Soli Loquy said…
i dont mind donating a couple of bucks as well... but like someone mentioned, how on earth are we supposed to give it to u? u know wat? i think d sponsoring is a good idea. u could like, dedicate an entire blog for the company. that kind of publicity may just get more attention than one of those lousy billboard ads.
Jolene said…
yea.. xiaxue..you should try approaching any digital camera company with a proposal first.. if all else fail, put up the paypal:)
shiiiin said…
you people have too much money to spare that you can donate to her. why not consider some other more worthy cause. I'm sure xiaxue, being so witty, can get her camera (probably free) very soon, easily.
Ron said…
I agree that Xiaxue with her undeniable charm, wit and beauty can easily get a camera in no time, but just in case she can't or won't, I am also happy to contribute. Hell, I'll even send her a camera if I knew where to.
YingTing said…
hi. i want a i5 too! can i know whr is it possible to get one at $350?? departmental stores are all selling them above $600! ):
Sam said…
Xiaxue the best thing u can do now is to STFU and Jump off a building.
OrangeArrow said…
There is a way to get your camera....

It's called work.

Begging or blinking virtual 'bambi eyes' won't get you any more respect as a person.

Yes, it's unfortunate that you lost your camera. This type of thing can happen to anybody. But people with different levels of maturity will treat it differently. Some may get angry for being careless or some may try like crazy to find it back. Or some may simply shrug and write it off as bad luck/carelessness and resolve not to be so careless next time.

But I just felt a bit disgusted that you resorted to begging for one.

You are not a child anymore that you have to resort to whining and begging for a free camera?

If you want something.

Work for it.

It's that simple.

After all, you just turned 21? You are an adult and I'm sure you want others to treat you as an adult and not as a child who just begs for things right?

Just my 2 cents.
zxink said…
there's such a thing called employment and payslips.
Dave Lucas said…
Wendy, if I was head of a digital camera company, I would hire you as my spokesperson/model in TWO SECONDS! With thousands of hits everyday on your site, I know SOMEBODY with a little power is watching... so, Kodak/Fuji/Canon,
isn't it time the whole WORLD meets Xiaxue? I like her so much, she's a "regular feature" on my blog! Xiaxue is HERE and HERE!
lalalabom said…
Where have people's sense of humour gone to?
*fakes faint*

d said…
hahahahaahahhahahahahhaha ahahha loser
tortoise said…
my goodness. you are actually OUTRIGHTLY BEGGING FOR A CAMERA? please man. dont you think that it's downright SHAMEFUL? do you actually think that you can just get things for free just by WHINING LIKE A FUCKING SHU NU? why not pray for people to sponser your food too. clothes, underwear and everything? even beckham needs to spend. so please man. you're just a pathetic blogger. your posts are full of singlish and you have NO INTELLECT (so what if you've gotten 269 fo PSLE. it was 9 freaking years ago. almost a decade.) please man. stop acting like a pathetic twelve year old and wake up. you are 21 AUNTY.
Haha! I totally agree with people donating a buck each! I would do it if you have a paypal account.and fuck those people who think it's cyberbegging.
I'll send you $1. Poor Wendy. Sorry you lost your camera. WAHHHH! Not a good feeling.
SceneTwo said…
I enjoy your blog and I'll give you more than a buck, just tell me how. Everyone else can give you a dime for treating you mean.
Roxanne said…
> why not pray for people to sponser
> your food too. clothes, underwear
> and everything?

Actually, that's not such a bad idea. :D

Hey give the poor girl a break. She just lost her camera. You would feel upset if you had lost one of your prized possessions too. People here are getting really sensitive. There's plenty who are 'begging' for things in their blogs too. Go ahead and attack all of them than...if you really have nothing to do
Edward Ng said…
Sorry to hear that you lost your camera.

Maybe you should work to get a new one. With work, you could get something more decent and could use instalment too.

If you are lucky, maybe someone would drop one at your door step.

Good luck and keep on writing.
debbie said…
hey cheer up!
u could leave an address so 350 people really could send you a dollar... i think its a good idea! and after all.. im sure many ppl wouldn't mind parting with a dollar to see pics on your blog!
Lor said…
i wish i have many people like u do to contribute the 1 dollar.

i need a hp. =(

and those who are insulting xiaxue. cant u guys take a joke? i am sure as much as she hope that people do donate her money, she'll get it of she can. who dun?! =(
Harry Pothead said…
sorry. i do feel its cyber-begging.
from first read. not double standards or anything.

Its not such a bad thing leaving that entry as a blog to remember your precious camera.
Libby said…
yeah, i think you should work for it.

people, why don't you take your one buck and give it to charity instead, rather than indulge in the whims of this spoilt brat?

get a life lah.
JS`star said…
some of these comments are like utter lameness. have your sense of humour flown to nigeria and gotten trapped there?

anyway. it sucks to lose something that is precious to you. wish you can get one soon so tt we can see pics up on ur blog again! =]
marie said…
hi...first time post, i just wanna ask u is there any webby that teach CSS for junoirs?
Gum said…
Orangearrow and whoever else leaving comments on asking Wendy to work to get it...

You ppl are just very "traditional minded".
Whatever makes you think that Xiaxue is not 'working' for it by writing in her blogs?
For god's sake she is a writer! If working on words gets the things done, it is equivalent
to the 'working for it' in your terms.

Why don't you comment to all writers 'go work for it and stop writing'.

Get out of your little box that you have been in.
app1eg said…
hey xiaxue! olympus has a new really pretty camera in PINK!
go take a look at www.olympus.com.sg
Kerrin said…

Jolene said…
You people who think she shouldn't be begging should think again! you think it's not hard work, this blogging business?

And we come to xiaxue's blog to be entertained by her lifestyle and her photos, isn't it time we give something back in return??

We visit her blog almost every other day, hoping that she has blogged about something because she provides us with a form of entertainment.

Don't you like seeing the pictures she take? How do you think the blogging meme would have started if it wasn't for her pictures?(and mr.brown and mr. miyagi too of course). We've had our fun together with her, and I think helping her by just a dollar is not too much to ask. So stop criticising her!!
Joone said…
Hmm.. Just use ur phone and take pics until u get a new cam?

Cheer up =)
Unknown said…
HELLO? can u all pple jus freakin wake up? u call this begging? its jus a fun-filled blog post with high entertainment value for gods sake. wth is gg on in the world with all u stern-serious-go-ard-critisizing-pple living in it. jeez.

oh and. whens the paypal coming up? xD
Sammi said…
haha i think those ppl who said it was begging is chao lame. for one if you are actually reading her blog, it means you either have lots of free time or is a fan. so dont shoot her. and yea i think its a pity to lose your camera (especially such a cute one), try starting up paypal. seems like u haf lotsa fans. =)

good luck
kahsoon said…
Visit http://www.fotozzoom.com.my and get a camera at a very low price. No sponsor though haha...its not worth it
flipflop said…
people who think this is cyber begging seriously need a dose of humour.
for gods sake.there are a gazillion people who are 'cyberbegging' if you want to put it that way.
shes already feeling so bad over e lose of her camera, and obviously this has some sort of sentimental value for her.
so why give her crappy advice like 'get a job', and give totally stern, pompous and useless opinions like 'why dont u beg for food too'.
if you think you have a sense of humour when you said that, and you actually felt that that was funny, and much funnier then the 'bitch' xiaxue's entries, i urge you to go suck your toes.

for one.she is obviously joking, and we can see from her independant nature evidently portrayed in her blog, that she will try her best to get a camera soon.

even if she had wanted the sponsors and such, i think she should feel that way.
its human nature to want to depend on her widely famous blog to gain stuff.
but deep down, i dont think she would manipulate her blog.

for me, her plucky witty and sensible nature does nto deserve such, well, 'disposable' comments.

and for the utterly superfluous remarks on her whining and beggin like a shu nu.i would like to remind you that everyone will definitely whine if he/she had lost a prized possession, unless of course if you're a stern fcked up jerk who talks to your khaki sandals.

i have no idea why i am spending my time talking to such moronic fools.

good luck xiaxue!hope you get a new camera soon.
i know you wont care about those morons.you go girl!
Lion said…
i would donate if i knew how.

anyway where is everyones sense of humour. the girl lost her camera and you ppl say she is begging. to each his own!
dun tell u said…
choke it.

no chance in hell.
the commentator said…
It is such a crying shame that you lost your camera. I'd suggest you save up, like everyone else, and buy a new one for yourself.

I believe everyone works for what they have. Even celebrities. Even you. Blogging on this website probably doesn't get you a regular pay every 28th of the month, but there are alternate sources of income. Income that I'm sure will allow for a new camera if only you save.

I think more than anything else, you just don't want to pay for a new camera.

Well at least have the decency to admit it.

Say out loud that you don't want to use your own money for a new camera.

Perhaps you'll still get several brownie points for brutual honesty.

Now? You're just lame.
flipflop said…
ugh.i cannot tolerate the DUMB comments on 'getting a job' or saving up.
no one cares la k.im sure xiaxue knows abt getting a job getting money and all that SHIT.
ugh UGH UGH.
it just irritates and annoys me to see such humour-less people.
roar.
MiE said…
Like so the DUH canx...of course she didn't want to pay for the new camera using her own money cos it isn't like she CHOSE to lose her camera you know. Imagine losing something precious to you and you have to buy whatever's second best at your own expense because you HAVE to, not cos you WANT to.

Anyway on a lighter note, Xiaxue u were mentioned on ST paper today Gen Y section about bloggin! :)
MiE said…
And yeah I dunno maybe she's just too distraught at that moment when she blogged that she didn't realize what she typed might deemed offensive and childish to some humourless people? She's desperate people come on...give her a break.
Sherul said…
haha, my first hairy nipple.

well you could always try ebay as an alternative source. (:
vagabond23 said…
Jeez, its mostly singaporeans who read the blog what do you expect...
s. said…
Well, obviously Wendy's upset at losing her camera (which must have cost quite a lot back then). She's upset for god's sake. It doesn't count as cyberbegging. Millions of blogs out there contain a wishlist which appeal to generous ones to donate. So what do you call those? Cyberbegging? Just because they're not as famous, that's why they do not get slammed. Wendy's just expressing her emotions. Cut her some slack.

& the 'donate to me' thing is just a casual comment. She's not brandishing a tin can in your nose & clinging on to your arm. Just a passing comment. You can choose to take it seriously, play along with her, or think of it as a good idea. & sadly enough, the humorless ones chose the former.
tortoise said…
i really don't think that 'getting a job ' is anything lame. people WORK for things. so if she(xx) loses her cammy and the everyone will donate her a buck so that she can get it for FREE then why not ask yourself. when your friend loses a pen do you even bother to buy him/her a new one? then xx why dont you just post everything you need up here. your TRUE BLUE FANS will definitely donate a buck or two (so said them). then you dont even have to work. just allow them to transfer all their HARD EARNED MONEY into your previously mentioned account! not a bad idea huh. those people who CLAIMED that you love xx please use some actions to support those empty words. and xx please do reveal the amount of money you have received. i'm eager to know!
f10 said…
hey! daniel (aka dannybunny) ever did some sort of a fund gathering thingy, for an apple computer as his birthday present, on the internet. i can't remember whether it worked, but its certainly worth a try. =D

this way your blogders could get you a belated birthday present for a little mentioning in your blog.

everybody loves fame. i do too. :D
可林 said…
wat the hell.. besides not having brains, looks like u aint got any arms and legs either.. begging nvm, begging for a camera?? wat a joke... and we're all laughing at ur expense.. coz it's really funny..
banananas said…
1. I love getting things for FREE. I love the presents family and friends and well-wishers have given me on special occasions, or just when they knew i needed one, or they jus tthink i am special enough for a gift wihout apparent reason.

2. I love giving things to people for FREE, the act of giving is a priviledge itself, and i leanrt it from those who inspired me. Whether or not they deserve it is not really the point.

3. if xiaxue gets a new cam for FREE i hope the calculative ones among us will not be too unhappy, for it is none of your business to start with.

4. For this entry alone Xiaxue's blog is priceless, it gave us the space to interact and discourse and reflect. (Other times, I am not really a fan, yet.)
xiaxue_sux said…
i m willing to gif that $1 to a begger, throw it into the drain than to gif it to u. stupid women. sell yourself for it lar. losin thingy is normal. don act like u r so pitiful that ppl shud get u one. stupid woman!
O.E.B. said…
keep on dreaming till the cows come home dude..
lalalabom said…
Eh AUNTIE!!
Friend friend I give you $2 la!
Change them all to 1-cent coins and throw at you.
Cheok said…
"And yeah I dunno maybe she's just too distraught at that moment when she blogged that she didn't realize what she typed might deemed offensive and childish to some humourless people?" -mie

... alright i think you better let her make her own case, cuz you're making it real hard for me to not laugh. i have humour, see?

people lose things all the time. who hasnt lost a wallet, phone or camera once in his/her life? its called lan-lan.

its one thing to ask from parents or for your bday etc etc. its quite another to shoot it to the rest of the world.

apologies cuz im being straightforward. but hard earned money is just that - hard earned. you learn lessons from losing stuff, and if not your own kin/close friends, i dont think anyone else should cushion the blow.
lee zhixin said…
I dunno why people are getting so worked up over an entry like this... it's her blog ok? I think it's perfectly alright to write whatever she feels like here.

Besides, if she was serious about people donating, she would have provided a means for people to donate. which basically proves that it was just a passing comment.

you guys don't have to jump on everything she says. anyway, it isn't her fault that her blog is famous ok? and if you really don't like her, just stop reading her blog. why are you wasting your time then?

ok. Sorry for getting somewhat worked up! :D I hope you find your camera instead of buying a new one. after all, it has been with you for so long. perhaps it's somewhere at home, hidden under a pile of books or something. It might appear a couple of days later... :D
Sammy Samson said…
for those ppl who're condemning xiaxue's request here, va te faire enculer!(i figure if u hv time to write such rubbish here, u hv time to go figure this phrase out...). a person who'd just lost her fav camera which substantially contributes to her no.1 blog in sg is just lamenting and looking out for potential sponsors has to be condemned by some self-righteous dodobirds like u ppl? go look up yr dictionary for the word "ridiculous"...
Hmm .. u really poor thing leh. any kind of entries lead to controversy. sigh .. why is everyone gettin agitated and upset easily these days?

And my dear gal .. u seem to be puttin on weight leh? urs pic all look bloated. been stressing up a lot huh?
Dave Lucas said…
Hi - I am taking a poll... should we buy Wendy a new camera - a dollar from everyone and she could buy a digital camcorder, too
- OR - should Wensy go out and convince a major camera company to give her one and in return she will be their spokesmodel? Vote HERE
famezgay said…
haha.. I wished to have people to throw all them $1 to me. Haha it is so good feeling.. No shame at all. Shame only when you force people to throw at you when they not willing at all. But ahah seems a lot of people willing to donate this $1 to her, so mean no shame. I hope anyone who likes to donate $1 to me can do so. I most welcome. hehe.. I'm poor too, I have to get my car repaired due to scratches I made hehe.. So jus make some contributions yah. (Contribution more than $500 can earn a free car trip from me for a day ahha)
butterflying said…
this is super weird.

for those 'morally upright' and 'you-should-work-for-it' dudes and dudettes out there... WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING HERE ALL THE TIME? reading xx's blog right? does she charge you? do you have to pay her to read her controversial blog pieces? heh. anyway don't people rant like this on their blogs? e.g. "I like, totally want a new camera... blah blah... anyone can help me buy pls pls pls" that is totally common. heh.

everyone should just piss off her.

since she found it all those people should just eff off, really.
gissysux said…
To those who felt Xiaxue was begging.. Whatever.

I begged once too.

Its not like you all've never begged before.

According to my book of philosophy, a person is begging only if they're doing it more than you.

So.. Unless you're willing to count.. *shrugs*
Sleepy said…
this is HER blog for god's sake.
YinG YinG said…
Aiya. pls lar.. grow up.. just a camera.. not as if its ur grandmother or grandfather give u onee....

earn money and buy ONE for goodness sake.
gissysux said…
Don't the two words "sentimental value" mean anything to anyone? Tsk.
self999999 said…
the worst thing about wendy is that
everyone else thinks what she
is like, is how singaporean girls really are, that is spoiled stupid selfish snobbish and ethereally cunt-ish.
HaMz said…
Wait... Cuntish? O_o Anyone of you heard of the story about a fox trying to eat the grapes high above? in the end he gave up and said that "PFft.... those must have taste sourly..."
Anonymous said…
For the ppl who hate/dislike xiaxue: if she enrages u so much, why dont u just stop reading her blog and save urself all the trouble? simple ain't it. DUH!!

And if xiaxue is really serious about her readers each donating $1 to her for a new camera, she wud have posted her ac number or a way to get the money to her directly in the blog without anyone asking, wudn't she? DUH!!

*rolled eyes*
lanie said…
Why can't beg for a camera? Don't tell me that you have never ever beg no one to get you stuff before. Maybe those people who diss her for begging really have small wee wees. And please lah , you must have what it takes to beg what.I think it must be cause you people are too fugly , beg also no one wanna hiew so now you are here complaining.
Pangy said…
Hey xiaxue, how big do you want your man? Big is a relative thing mah.. so how big is big?
famezgay said…
Haha I wonder why those hates xiaxue ask us to stop reading her blog still reading her blog themselves too. huh I wonder if they really don't like it should really stop come here and give comments yah.. Maybe they are jealous of her i think..
Oh.My.God.

I am absolutely disgusted that you would beg people you don't even know to donate $1 to you. And to you blind followers --> What the Hell?

To those people who gave crude remarks, good job. Everyone of us has lost countless things, but no one went out to the streets and started begging for money. And ceusm, no, WE are not jealous. It's just that (maybe you didn't know), after a website gets featured in a paper, people will flock there.
