Presents and seaweed

I'm so excited! In a bit I'm going with Qihua to collect Qing qing's birthday present, and we all love love love the present!!

Though, I can't tell you guys YET what it is, as Qing's bdae is not till Sunday. *smug smile*

We all had a fun time teasing her yesterday about it, giving her rubbish clues like "It can be worn, can be eaten, and can be flicked" and the preverted girl keeps thinking it has something to do with sex, like an edible underwear or something!!

Siao one.

So, that day, I was randomly talking to Gillian (my manager) about this new crispy seaweed I discovered called Tao Kae Noi and how much I am obsessing over it coz I like it so much.

But it's quite expensive la, the single sheet one is 70c and the big packets are like $2.95 or something.

And Gillian was like, to my surprise, "Yeah, my favourite is the Wasabi one!". I only found one other avid lover of Tao Kae Noi, who is Wong, and everyone else seemed to have not tried it before, so I am quite happy that I found another common liker of the seaweed. :D

"Hey," I said excitedly to G, "Let's ask them to advertise with us la, then they can give us free samples!!!"

And so G approached them.

Unfortunately, they said they didn't have a budget allocated, but since Wendy likes it so much, we will give her some packets for free!!


For those of you who are missing out, here is the seaweed I am talking about:

My favourite is original flavour...

Buy the big packets! Single sheet's never enough!!

Inside, half eaten

It is very different from conventional seaweed coz it's so crispy! And yummier.

And they let me try this new flavour called the Tempura Seaweed!

Not out in Singapore yet!

Even the packaging in still in Thai


One side seaweed

Other side tempura! Yummy

Professional cam-whores can cam-whore with even just a piece of seaweed!

Besides original, there is also...

Tomato, which I like

Tom Yam... A bit spicy with a tinge of sourness.

As well as Hot & Spicy (which I have not tried before, but is Wong's favourite) and Wasabi, which I dislike coz wasabi sucks!!! *looks at wasabi lovers weirdly*

Better wash your mouth after you eat, or you will look like me!

SFF, Jaan, and a beautiful computer


Some people are just so hilarious!!

No seriously, people who leave hate comments are real comedians sometimes, I feel. I have no idea why, but the last post made some kids really angry, and they left remarks like,

"You are just a poor girl who has to wash your own dishes so stop acting rich!! Even my maid also richer than you...! I stay in a private house and I drive a big car!"

etc etc, obviously not as coherently as I just typed.

What the fuck is the problem with you people? I never said I was rich in the previous post, I merely said I spend beyond my limits. Siao!!!

Besides, how sure are you all that I am not rich? Maybe I've been saving money since I was a kid and I have tens of thousands in my bank? Maybe I won toto but I just didn't mention it coz I am scared people borrow money from me?

It's very weird how people take pleasure in telling me they are richer than me. Do you think anyone cares how rich YOU are? Nope, coz you are still... a sad rich nobody. Ha!

And this is my blog with 30,000 readers a day, obviously when I am being happy and indulgent I'd blog about it, but I'm not going to take photos of myself washing dishes or vaccuuming the floor in a dirty old tee now, am I?


Why should I be more humble?

Just to please you all? No, really, just to please you all? I think I'd gently decline - just go fuck yourself.

Irritating la such people!!!

Delete delete!! Imma delete all the long stupid comments that you all wrote.

Back to rich and happy topics again.

I SPLURGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

=( =( =(

I went to Sim Lim and within 3 hours or so I spent $600++!!!!!

I can't resist buying stuff leh, how? I really, really got to STOP spending beyond my limits.... =(

Ming and Mike went with me, and the poor boys just keep having to carry my heavy purchases for me...

Thanks Ming, you are super sweet lar!

IT Geek @ Heart

My Samsung White LCD monitor!! 19 inch/$344

Imagine a better life without your bulky CRT monitor!!!


I kept hopping around... Mike and Cloudy...

Both think it's typical behaviour from me. Hehe...


White and sleek and big!!!

Baby pink luv

And to go with the whole look I bought a nice pink mouse.... $25

After I got my monitor I was looking around for RAM, and I bought a one gig one for $135...

I thought maybe I'd buy some new speakers as well, because my old speakers make nice music sound like an old banshee wailing her head off.

Unbelieveably, when I was just about to give up on my speakers quest (nothing nice and not involving a ridiculously huge sub woofer) when I SAW THIS:


A PINK CPU CASE!!!!!!!!!


(P/s: I am not a laptop sort of person, I like PCs)

I mean, CPU casings are usually bloody masculine-looking, and it is just out of pure chance that I saw this shop displaying a pink one!


How rare is that? Out of all the shops in Simlim, I seriously only saw ONE shop selling a remotely girly cpu casing... which is this one.

Ming and Mike visibly withered while I asked the owner how much it costs and whether my computer parts can fit into it, etc etc...

Within 5 mins of talking, I was sure I had to have it, and paid up. Looking back though, it was kinda dangerous because I had no idea if it would have worked with my old parts!

I think Mike must have wanted to whack my head with the casing all while cursing himself viciously for walking pass this particular store, because he knows he will have to be the one to fix it up. :D


Cheap! Well, I think it's cheap. It's rare to find a nice clean looking cpu casing!

Matches my carpet!!

Enough of ugly CPUs!

Comes with an extra fan...

The only unfortunate thing is that the lcd lights are BLUE!!

:( I wish computer designers will stop using blue for EVERYTHING!

Look at this fine example: My old CPU

Bye ugly thing!!!!

Some boys might be defensively shouting, "That's not ugly what! It's a normal-looking cpu!"

BUT IT IS! To girls it is. Engineers should never take over the jobs of designers.

I am so happy!! Mike managed to squeeze the contents of such a large casing into my small small pink one, and to add, now my frontal USB port works!

Thanks baby!


Random photo:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

I keep seeing this poster and it is so fucking funny!! Have you ever wondered how a turtle would look like without his shell?

Look at the tmnts! They all look like they are wearing their shells as a tube top! The shells look detached from their skins.

Or rather, they are wearing a flat sort of washboard on their tummies (tied to their waist with a ribbon) to cover their neh nehs. HAHAHA

Hehe, gay turtles!

Tangs 30th Anniversary

I think it's 30th I am not too sure...

With Joan's baby!!

Baby Clare really looks like her daddy...

Rozz looking glamourous while hosting with Bernard Lim

I brought Wong there.

The female model is so gorgeous!!

Anyway, did you realise this is Elvis, Charlie Chaplin, and Madonna?


Actually, this is Whitney Houston. If you scroll a little up, you will see her, and her massive hair, standing beside "Marilyn Monroe". :)

Singapore Fashion Festival

Opening show - Vivianne Tam

Debbie with our GoL stylist Elisa!
She said I can't put her on my blog =X

Ashley, Joan and Joan's sister!

Me + Denise Keller!!

So gorgeous!

Jaan Restaurant (Swissotel level 70!!)

Mike is the sweetest! He said that he will treat me to dinner at Equinox if he gets the job that he wants, and he did!

Lucky me.

The fabulous view is worth half the price. :)

In what I thought was a classy green dress

Unfortunately, with the flash it seems everyone can see the white bra. I assure you in normal lighting it cannot be seen. Oh well.

You can't tell, but I am SO HAPPY with my food!

Super super yummy veal with truffles!

Oh, it's soooooo good.

Mike had Maine lobster, which, as you can see, he enjoyed.

Yummy!! I shall work harder to be rich so I can afford to do this every once a month or so.

Oh yeah! The service there was so... CONDESCENDING!

I won't say it is BAD per se, coz the waiters were extremely attentive and rather polite, but there was this one guy...

Mike's already decided he wants the lobster, but I was still not sure about the rest of the menu, so I asked the waiter about the veal and the codfish.

Everytime I finished asking a question, he would LOOK AT MIKE AND ANSWER MIKE.


His arm was draped across Mike's seat backing, and he just plain refused to look at me while answering MY question!!

After two questions I got fed up with him and said, "Excuse me, it is me who wants the veal not him."


Poor Mike didn't know what to do so he just kept looking from my frowny face to the waiter's face, as if directing the waiter to answer me while looking at me.

So annoying!

It is bloody condescending ok! I think he is answering Mike just because Mike is angmoh and he thinks I'm some cheap China slut or something.

ANGRY! Feel so annoyed. I wish I remember his damn name.

Or maybe, as Mike suggested, the waiter is afraid Mike gets jealous if he looks at me? But can't be what, after I told him sharply that he is being rude, he still continued with his behaviour.

OR OR OR maybe, he is homo and wants to shag Mike real bad! That would explain why he was standing so close to Mike.

Sorry, straight! Girls and female animals only. Ha! I'm joking. Strictly humans. Maybe androids, I dunno. I think he likes robots.


Tattoo love!

Still a bit scabby


And best of all!!!

I mentioned in the previous post about how I hate the way teeny boppers try so hard to act like they are so pretty, and I can't stand how they take photos right?

Well, some of you got really indignant and started saying that people cannot help being ugly, wearing glasses, etc.

True that people cannot help being ugly, but NO NEED TO KEEP TRYING SO HARD TO TAKE "PRETTY" PICTURES RIGHT?

Let me show you how they do it:


Fucking disgusting!!

YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN NOW??????!!!!!!!

You see now don't you?!

Can you stand photos like this?

They look so bloody awkward and gross, I don't even know what to say.

Maybe except...


p/s: If you can't spot the different between my typical cam-whoring photos and the awkward teeny bopper one, you are blind, so don't bother giving your opinion. Cmon! One is so contrived!

Friday, March 23, 2007


I am bored at home!! Usually at this sort of time I'd have just woken up (4pm) and I'd bum around using the computer until 6pm then I'd go meet the rest of the bummers.

And we'd go out till 3am - reach home, chat with Mike in US till 6am, then fall asleep.

And repeat cycle.

But thanks to Mike being here and starting work and his not being able to sleep with the light on, I am sleeping at 12am EVERY NIGHT!

How crazy is that?????????

I am like a normal OL now!

Today I woke up at 7am to cook breakfast!! Then I washed the pot and bowl!! Good gracious me.

Anyway, TGIF!

(Digressing, I never thought I'd catch myself saying TGIF coz I don't work and so weekdays or weekend is the same to me. Except I actually hate the weekends coz town is always so crowded with stupid working people.)

So yeah TGIF.

I can't stand it anymore! My computer is ridiculously slow nowadays!! Mike says that the problem is that I don't have enough RAM (anyone care to verify this?) and told me to get some more.

At the same time, I've got some money so I am gonna splurge it on a new LCD monitor screen!


The cheapest 17 inch sort are like $250! Totally affordable! I always thought LCD monitors are like $799 or something and was perfectly contented with my fat space-taking old monitor till now.

Now it's just so ugly. =(

Sigh, I am so superficial I scare myself.

I had my eye on this white Samsung one, which costs $340...

Chioer than this

This is not the one I want to buy, but you get the gist...

SOOOOO exciting!

And to go with the lcd monitor I also need a new computer table!

What? I can't be using a nice classy monitor on my old old table can I?

I am SUCH a spendthrift leh...


That day, it was Xiao Feng's birthday, and my secondary school friends were reproaching me about how I never treated them to a First-Pay-Cheque sort of dinner coz I have been on the receiving end of theirs...

I felt really indignant and embarrassed at the same time.

They said that I got my first paycheck LONG before they got theirs (coz I went to poly, and they, UNI) and yet I never gave them a treat...

I don't know how to explain it, but I am just not that sort.

Firstly, I spend my money IMMEDIATELY once I get it, and I am rich for maybe 1 week before I go broke again.

Secondly, my paychecks, for the last 3 years or so, are not stably coming in every month, and most points in time I am barely surviving (due to over-spending shopping habits,and CABBING everywhere!).

I get, say, a $300 cheque for some ad, and then 2 weeks later I get another $500 for something else, and I don't even know myself when the next payment is going to come in.

While this lifestyle is comfortable enough for myself, I just can't justify spending money on treating other people to food.

I'm willing to pay $30 at best for the occasional treat for myself, but $150 or something for everybody's food just seems CRAZY to me.

At least if I spend $340 on a monitor it can be used for a damn long time, but food just turns to shit!

I don't even know how to explain myself to the rest that our lifestyles are just different, and people like me just don't do First-Paycheck-Treats.

None of the bummers do!

Zapzap doesn't even spend more than $5 on food, ever!

I told Qihua this situation, and she was nodding furiously in agreement, saying that her friends say the same thing to her (bankers and the sort), but her money all comes from periodical modeling, and once she is rich she spends it all on shopping - otherwise she will be quite broke too.


Wong da lawyer said, "I disagree, because the value of $1 is still the same for you and me what."

JUST DIFFERENT LAR! She won't understand.

They quipped about my last season Stomp paycheck, which is a pretty hefty amount in the thousands.

But what did I do with my Stomp paychecks?

I bought a $2,400 laptop, and a $2000 ticket to US. Money gone.

"How about when you take cabs all the time? If you can take cabs all the time you are surely quite rich what," they continued.

I'm impulsive, I'm spoilt, and I just won't take public transport.


I'd spend my last cent on a cab ride.

If I don't have money to take cabs, I just won't go out! Fuck public transport. I had enough with wasting time waiting for buses, and sharing a minute space with smelly, uneducated people who are damn rude.

And they are always STARING! Hate.

I can't even count the amount of times I've been violated on public transport (ie MOLESTED) or the times I had to keep from screaming when I see a cockroach next to me on the bus window. If I can help it, why must I suffer like that ever again?

FUCK PUBLIC TRANSPORT! (Except cabs which don't count)

Maybe with the new Stomp paychecks I will finally muster up some money to treat them to something nice... but Momo just had to tell me that once we save up $10,000 we can move house!

And I really really wanna move!

And when I move I'd wallpaper my room with the new sort of wallpaper, you know, with the velvet prints... Rozz says it costs $1k plus.

Then new furniture costs money... SIGH!


And my latest craving is this totally useless thing:

A PINK PSP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is making me go crazy!

Of course, PSPs are not useless, they are totally useful coz you can play games, listen to music, watch movies, or even surf the net...


I don't take public transport anymore, so I don't get bored for long periods anymore, and the only time I think I'd really appreciate a PSP is when I am flying by myself.


Or when I am acting and there's waiting times in between... but I am not acting!

But, but... Isn't it so pretty?

Comes with pink accessories....??

:( :( :( :(


And the only reason I want it is because it is pretty and pink.

Blame Wong for making me go to Lucky Plaza yesterday, else I won't have seen it and won't want to buy it. Grrrr!

$292 I think.

I can't believe I started this blog entry not knowing what to write and ended up writing so much.


I love it sooooo much...
