New Year Eve for I welcoming 2007?

[CuRRent MooD:] Fine, little vexed but okay

[CuRRent Song:] 浜崎あゆみ - Beautiful Fighters

[Last FooD/BeveRage:] Pokka Green Tea (disgusted by the particles in it - from where???)

Hi all...

haha...what a way to start my last blog post for the year 2006. I've talked about my 2006 in one of the blog post a while ago, so I shall not talk about it. Just update for the past few days...


Rested for the morning as I wasn't feeling well and applied for a day off my work...then woke up and rested a bit, only to receive a call from someone I didn't expect - Michelle! She asked me out a while and I agreed rightaway - when was the last time I saw her?

Met up @ Lucky Plaza, and we walked a bit around Tangs then to Far East Plaza to look for her stuff for her sister's wedding, then chatted a bit along the way...good times don't last long, we parted about 530pm and I proceeded to PS for my usual time-wasting exercise.

Maybe people just don't know how I feel towards my godsisters and my good friends...=) but that moment I saw Michelle, the kind of feeling in priceless. She even asked me why I had that expression...I don't know, I just felt like tear-ing (as in having tears) but stopped myself a bit...cos I haven't seen her in like a year or so I guess...I have a bunch of sisters all turning 21 coming year, and I wonder if I have the chance to celebrate with them. I know Ting have already invited me for her chalet, so that is confirmed.


Went market with mum in morning, den go home zzz...but it's not a peaceful afternoon as phonecalls and other things kept me away from my peaceful sleep. Ended up I wake up and after some time-arranging with Isabelle, I went to meet up with Isabelle at Bugis.

Gone to the costume shop to look for retro clothes (not her taste) so we went MS and continued the time the shopping was done it was nearly 9pm and I took bus down to PS. Went to Star Fac and saw some real good games of Puzzle Fighter - scary to say the least, since I've not seen such high standards for a long time. Around 1130pm I went over to take train to Outram.

Met up with Isabelle again for KTV till 3am...sang quite some songs and had nonsense movements and singing tunes. LOL.


Today. What's it for today? Things might just turn a direction after I leave the house today......

[Last FooD/BeveRage:] Chicken Pie / Milo

The days have been ok, just lazing around and training up my Maple character. Oh yeah, Virneige has got into the Maple "craze" too so I gonna educate her for a bit. Oh well, another stance of a

Work has been fine and managable, but the weather has not been the best of sorts (unless you're on leave and staying at home dozing - that's very very good) and interrupting a lot of travelling and stuff. The recent Taiwan earthquake shook the fibre optics and now the internet connection is slow if not impossible. Well, hope they get it repaired in the 2-3 weeks to come.

Ate pizza for Christmas, for 26th there's nothing much, just lazing about outside and then back home. Yesterday after work I met up with Virneige at Lot 1 for dinner and guided her a lil on Maple, which I went home after that (and got caught in rain again).

Today is Celena's birthday, and I wish her all the best in everything she does and that she will get all she wished for. Even though I've already given her the birthday cum christmas present, somehow I still feel a lil weird about myself not preparing anything on this day. Weird feel of mine though. She's probably enjoying herself now in Disneyland, and I should probably see a lot of stuff that she brought back (not to mention the gazillion pictures she might've taken). Will get to see her soon, I hope?

Anyway on a side note...... bandit is Level 58! Hoooooo~~!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Daniel, thanks for the Xmas CD, kinda nice really! Not bad!

I believe much of you had a good Christmas, regardless the events, gifts, mood and people...I hope all of you had it good. Mine is ok, went to DXO with Daniel and gang and chilled out. Wouldn't say is the best of best Xmas I would've thought of, but I guess it beats being alone and everything. Hey I'm just being frank, but I enjoyed their company nevertheless.

I've improved my blogskin, hope you guys can read it better now.

In case you're wondering why I'm at home (yes I am at home) that's cos I'm helping out washing the bathroom. Not really much, jus helping my mum shift the stuff here and there, but she told me my existent's important so she can work with a peace of mind. I guess that's like buying insurance, no?

Nothing way too much for me to comment and say today, but I guess improving my skin's the way to go. Thanks for the feedback Sujun =)

Ehm...anymore? Hmmm...

I'll update if any.

Cellie, Merry Christmas in Japan, Hokkaido...

Oh yea, since I'm at it, I want the newest album from Ayumi Hamasaki!!! Anyone is kind enough to give me as a belated Xmas pressie? Or New Year pressie? Or even my super-early birthday pressie...I don't mind. Hehe.

See ya~

WoKay~~~!!! (Shake Hips)

My bandit is FINALLY Lvl57 after 5 weeks. LOL.

It's Christmas Eve, people!

[CuRRent MooD:] Tired but fine

[CuRRent Song:] Renegade Masterz - Crystal Ship (Radio Edit)

[Last FooD/BeveRage:] BBQ Chicken Wings / Pokka Green Tea

Well nothing too much to blog about, just that I had dinner wif my eldest bro and mom on Friday evening, and really nothing much. Just eat and chat, den he left.

Of course, Orange still did not manage to eat the Tang Yuan. HAHAHAHA :P

I've not chatted on the phone in "extended mode" for a long time, and Virneige managed to make me do that for 2 hours plus till 5am in the morning. Ouch. It's always good to exchange experiences and thoughts to people, and I noticed I've been doing that to people of my age nowadays. Coincidence?

Woke up late morning on Saturday, prepared myself and went for the HP-CCS lunch at Furama Riverfront Hotel. Nothing too much special, made small chat, bumped onto some familiar faces, and got a lift from Michael (from NLB project) to PS. Went to my usual haunts, had a game of DDR and got to know 2 frens of my bro, I can onli remember one name as the other is well, way too unique.

Upon hearing my dad's not sending my mum to Carrefour, I took the bus home and went on a "shopping journey" in the evening. We took cab from my place to Suntec City's Carrefour. In total we spent like 4 hours or so in Suntec looking at various stuff and my mum spent over $500. The silly issue was that she forgot to bring her card and additional cash, so upon knowing that payment must be made before delivery, we had a problem. Called my eldest bro, didn't manage to get help. Called Isabelle but phone is off/no reception. Thinking hard of who might be able to help...whew. Called Sujun up and she agreed to help. After waiting for 45 mins, the transfer was done and we managed to purchase what my mum wanted. Thanks Sujun! =)

We ate dinner @ Suntec and my mum tried black pepper chicken from a jap stall...haha...priceless when I saw her expression. After finished eating we took cab back home. Got the cash from her and returned Sujun the money, den went to buy some chicken wings for supper.

It's Christmas Eve, any plans yet? Seriously speaking, I do not usually go around getting myself involved by asking pple "may I join you?"...but I do ask around for their programs, and from my feedback, I might just be doing one of the following:

1) Pulled to After 5 by Patricia.
2) A kind invitation by Virneige the babe (but I suspect this is improbable)
3) Zhiming (one of the TAs same batch as me) might ask me to go chiong (but also improbable)
4) Drinking session organised by Brian, Dan's side. This should be the most probable event.
5) Killing Wraiths at home in Maplestory (sad!)
6) Other miracles

Ok? WOkay~~~ (imitates Hard Gay's voice but I dun think I would wanna do his trademark action)

I wish everyone to have a Merry Christmas! =) have fun this festive season!

I don't believe that after buying my x2 xp card, Maple refuses me entry. WTF.



Nothing much went on this week, probably the only special thing is about 冬至, which talks about the shortest day of the year. Also symbolises the coming of a new year, everything renewed blablabla.

Do you think I wanna talk about that?

I'll talk about the thing I do for many years...

...handmaking the glutinous rice balls.

My mum does not only make them during this period; in fact she makes them in some chinese occasions as well, even 元宵 (15th day of Lunar New Year, also known as Chinese V-Day). She mentioned about last year when she made an average amount only to be shared by many paternal relatives on that day they visited...hahaa...that I can remember...

Anyway, what I gonna show you are pics I took of the raw product, the prepared product and the finished product. Enjoy.

Orange is plain unlucky she didn't get a chance to taste them. I tried msging and calling but she refuses to respond, so it's not my fault :P

Anyway, I realised lots of my posts ain't really in a happy mood or something, I guess I'll try to improve that in the coming year. I'll be coming up with New Year resolutions and maybe my wishes for the year....but well, my wish's the same every year.

Yesterday after coming back on a cab, I dropped my phone. You see, 6111 often has a dramatic effect when it falls - it just splits into 3 pieces (main body, battery and the backplate covering the battery compartment) and looked as though it has been sent to the nether world.

You are so wrong, Nokia just rocks big time. I switched it on....normal. Ringtone...normal. Pple call me, I call out - no problem.

Now that I dropped it twice in drama fashion, it's time to dispose it before it has problems.

Oh well guess I'm ain't as "happening" as Cellie but oh well, *shrugs*...

Today is 18th December 2006, about 2 weeks left from 2007. This year has been so taxing, so experiencing, and lotsa unexpected and fantasy-like situations happened I wonder if I could've lived this at all.

Much of 2006 (3/4) have left me in wake of Sunshine's situation. Her demonstration of love had been special, but I guess due to certain situation, circumstances that somehow my heart did not tune in well to hers. Of cos adding some other minor and not-so-minor situations...well somehow it left me in rumbles and such. I felt like an idiot, a bastard at times.

I'm actually reading backwards, and I know I did not blog some of my intimate stuff in this blog. So...give me some moment to recap. Now on the part about Jiawen, her marriage and my weird-timing of dreams. Haha....

Ok, after reading back for my past year, I realised I've been talking a lot about work and some thoughts. Nvr knew the first 3/4 of the year was so "uneventful" until certain things happened in this 1/4 I just felt I could collapse any moment, even now...

At the wake of September saw myself in a freak situation which I couldn't have imagined in my entire 25 years of my life, and till now am still stuck so in it I wonder if I can just die in my tracks and forget about everything else.

In mid-October, I see myself stuck in another situation so deep, most pple who knew have already tried their very best to convince me to give up, or respect my decision and wished for all the best for me.

By now, I'm still basking in these 2 situations (1 so-called resolved and another outstanding) I wonder if I'll have it solved first or have myself killed in the process. People who've followed my blog for a while will probably know what I'm talking about, but then again, who really knew the contradiction and anguish I have in me?

Something came in and gave me a bad shot on the back, at this very precise moment. Totally timely fashion.

I shall skip both the happy and not-so-happy things that got tagged to this and am going to go ahead thanking people who have been through with me this year. 2006 is coming an end, and 2007 shall bring us a new lease of life and hope.

Any mention of anyone first on the list will probably bring a lot of dispute, so this shall not be in any order of preference at all:

Erin (Sunshine): You might not be reading this already, but thanks for all the happiness you brought to me, all the understanding you've tried and everything you've done for me. Although things did not come to a satisfactory end, I wish you all the best in your endeavours and with your new lease of life. =)

Sujun: I never thought I will find such a soulmate in you from a workplace I've gradually given up hope on. We know just how much we've encouraged each other, and thank you for giving me all due understanding, time and effort on me. You've been as close a friend can get, and as much a soulmate can offer to her other mate. Please do take care of yourself, Peter and of course the golden piglet you have in your body. =) jiayou for the new year!

Daniel, Bryan: Listening the cock and also inviting me for the chionging and drinking sessions, I realised I did relax a little bit more even though I knew more will come my way. Nevertheless, have a good year ahead!

Isabelle: Thanks for your unforgettable birthday drinking session @ Dbl O, instead of me giving you present you gave me one instead :P never mind, that is secondary, I'm glad you stood by me thru my low times and lent a listening ear whenever I needed one. We might not be the closest buddies in any sense, but to me you've always been as close to me as ever can get...I thank you so much for so sooo much.

Patricia: You have been such a sister to have stood by me and offered me due advice on the situation I've faced that point of time. You've been as great a sister anyone can have, and I respect you for as much the respect you've given to me. Time flies, another year is coming to an end, and 8 years it has been. It will go on longer, for as endearing as you are to me, you have been one of the best gifts God has bestowed unto me.

Michelle: We didn't have much chances being out with each other this year, but for whatever chances we had chatting, we had it thinking for each other. You've listened, and guessed, and stood by me. It has been great to know that I've not been discriminated and have you thinking for me. I really thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Janet: Didn't really know I'll probably get another friend from GSK, but I guess it's really fate that made both of us know each other. You have probably came the right place at the right time and offered whatever you can to make me feel better many times when I just needed that additional comfort. You have been very nice to me, and I thank you so much for that.

Celena: My recent stuff has been all about you, and I guess there isn't too much I can say at the current moment. You too have been one of those stars that shone brightly, and do enjoy your holidays in Japan and may you shine even brighter and happier when you come back. Some things are left in decisions of time, we won't know what time will bring, but so long I have my hand in yours, you will have yours in mine.

Oh well, time to disappear. Come to think, should I blog about my week? I shall try to do so on another post. =) do look below, it might not appear above this post.

Anyway, went out for lunch with Cellie just now @ Mos Burger...den once again certain thoughts in me lah...*sigh*...den I went over Dhoby Exchange to use wireless and blog...den check server things...blablabla...oh well.

I updated the Emil Chau post with pics, FYI.

My past week?

[CuRRent MooD:] Neutral

[CuRRent Song:] Back-blogging, no effective song

14 Dec (Thursday)

Morning went to market with mum to buy the usual stuff (she didn't wanna come out on Saturday) and also arranged wif Cellie to have lunch together at her workplace. Not really a lot on this day, I went to Sim Lim and purchased my new speakers. Oh yeah, take a look at my new layout.

A Fluffy Sunday

[CuRRent MooD:] A lil tired

[CuRRent Song:] Dominoo - Hero (Extended)

[Last FooD/BeveRage:] Myok Curry Noodles / Plain Water

The stupid idiotic Preventive Maintenance ended at ard 3pm, and it's really tiring to have every PM being this long and yet wif all the crap going ard, it's hard to maintain high morale in the team...but what to do, such things happen and we have to hold together while we're still as a team.

Called up Berlinda to postpone to next week, den while eating @ Mos Burger in JP wif Malcolm, so happen to see the Mos Teddy to be out so I bought for Cellie. Went to her area to pass her the Teddy and ended up she brought down Fee (Fluffy her Pomeranian - edited by Cellie -.-) for a walk as well...I wouldn't say it's a walk since Fee was so hyper it ended up running about. Surprisingly Fee was very very tamed today and very interested to know more about me. LOL.

After walking Fee around, went to continue knowing Fee more today =) lol...spent quite some time "conversing" with Fee as I had to do what Cellie does for Fee - scratching his stomach which he loves it so much...I guess Fee's lucky today. I guess Fee's really a friendly dog as I've not really been so calm with a dog licking my hand and fingers, my sole and toe -.- but oh well, that's Fee's way of welcoming me so I guess I shouldn't take it so hard. LOL.

Had pizza and watched "Big Long Gold" till we switched over to the Star Awards "Aftermath" and her parents came back. Just greeted them and it ain't so bad, at least they don't make me think I'm not welcomed.

Oh well...I guess it's about turn-in time...mummy is worried if I gonna stay up late I'll add to the news regards the recent spate of deaths while sleeping - I might think that's remote, but for the sake of my mummy...what to do? Anyway now also nothing to do...Cellie also not online, so just rest early ba.

Another boring Sunday in GeeAssKay...

[CuRRent MooD:] A lil tired, fine

[CuRRent Song:] Madonna - Into The Groove

[Last FooD/BeveRage:] Matte Chocolates / Lemon Barley

I guess I've not updated in almost a week. This week has been okay, some ups and downs in emotions, and lots of thoughts running through my head. I've also gained a friend in Janet, one of the users in GeeAssKay, and some things having been sorted out in the week.

Maybe the week hasn't been the happiest but nevertheless "interesting" and "fulfilling".

I guess I'm leaving a lot of things for time to resolve, and that hopefully my efforts are well-paid off. Being someone close to another means you need to be a friend, a buddy, a listener, a giver and sharer and many other things - most importantly without the expectation of reciprocation (but appreciation probably) but with a large heart to take in all possible situations. Having to brave wind and rain with Celena constantly reminds me of all these...

...but I'll still hold her hand in mine.

It's 12:55pm but we're still stuck in this stupid place. Oh well what gives. Haha...oh yeah the Emil pics, I'll post it anytime soon cos it's at home...or I could just simply grab from Cellie's blog. Oh well see how it goes. Haha.

Half-tired Monday

[CuRRent MooD:]

[CuRRent Song:] Oceanlab - Beautiful Together

[Last FooD/BeveRage:] Mcnugget Meal / Green Tea

I have like 1.5 hours to wait for her, so I'm in the Mac doing some blogging. did I do yesterday?

Having slept at 2am, you would have expected me to slp till 10? Nope...not exactly, should I say. I woke up @ 6am to morning call Celena, den sent some msgs, den they got back to me I was only resting on the bed while waiting for the msgs to come. After like 2 hours, I got myself up @ 8am and turned on the PC to blog (and mapled a bit).

Left home ard 11+ and went over Cellie's workplace to accompany her for lunch in Mos Burger. It was lots of people but we still managed to get 2 seats, makan and chat. Times flies and so I walked her back to her office, and off I went home in preparation for my mum's visit to the specialist @ NUH.

We arrived @ NUH ard the time everything ended it was about 6. Doctor's views are not good - it seems that even though my mum had been complaining about her left leg not recovering, the doctor only seem to mention her having some sensitivity problems and also mentioning about her posture. Her left leg was given another jab (there was one done last year) and as per previous experience, the jab does not seem to work its wonders. The thing about this visit was more on her right leg which has been giving problems for the past few months. The x-ray reflects badly though - just over a year ago it was ok, but this time round it spots a cyst over the joint and the cartilege had already been worn off over the top of the leg bone joining the pelvic. The doctor did ask if she wants an operation soon or have a review 6 mths later, and she chose the latter...however, the doctor did warn us in the worst case scenario that the right leg could have a chance of collapsing, going into the pelvic and thus rendering great pain - which would mean immediate operation.

Reached home area ard 6+ and had dinner at the coffee shop, den went home. Took a bath and was tired, but I knew if I slp early it'll cause me to be late the next morning. Just so happens my neighbours are going down for a walk so I went down wif them.

Heard that something happened in the meantime and I was worried even though I knew nothing much happened to her. Anyway...slpt ard 1+am in the end.

This week gonna be interesting. =) hopefully.

Is it messy, or just tribulation?

[CuRRent MooD:] Messed up, pondering, wondering...

[CuRRent Song:] Elizabeth - Crazy Red

[Last FooD/BeveRage:] Plain water

I know it has been a week I've last updated, and already people are telling me I've not updated. People are also telling me a lack of updates may cause them to not read my blog, but I've been trying my best.

Seriously speaking, I do not know what to write on this entry. Lots of things live in me and yet I find it a chore to type it out...either cos it may cause complications, or some things jus ain't to be mentioned...and many many others. All I know is that I'm going thru a tough ride yet again this month.

The weekdays of last week ain't much to be mentioned, just the usual stuff and rushing and gashing, and the relaxing and boring Thursday which I was in Biopolis. I'll just briefly go through Friday and Sunday, while I'll try walk thru Saturday....

Friday (1st Dec)

I was on leave, so I woke up in the morning to accompany my mum to the market (cos I know I'll be busy on the Sat)..just along the way, someone called me - from EPS.

Adeline (EPS): Hi is this Choon Huat (my dialect name)?
Me: Yea?
Adeline: Adeline from EPS
Me: Yea I know
Adeline: I know this is a bit of a rush but can you make it for an interview @ 3:45pm?
Me: (!!!) wah, so rush ah??
Adeline: Yes I know it's a bit of a rush but they called me last minute they have a free slot for interview. Are you able to make it today?
Me: Yeah sure, I happen to be on leave today.
Adeline: Oh really? That's very good! Remember to blablabla.....

...or so it ended. Suddenly I realised I have a big situation on my hands - I can't go scouting for Saturday anymore, some stuff just need to be reshuffled..and I need 2 squeeze stuff. No after "shopping" wif mum, I brought the things back and prepared my stuff...

Problem #1: Resume updated but not printed. I don't have a printer at home (I don't really need one apart such pesky situations) so after thinking a bit, I had to resort to getting my neighbour to help me. Ok done.....

Problem #2: No photo. No choice, gonna go get it done later...

After preparing most of the stuff, I thought I should be able to make I realised I forgot to have my payslip printed! It's online...darn. My neighbours were out, so I'm out of options...Cellie offered to help which she did, but due to timing concerns I was unable to drop by her workplace and take the I took a cab straight to SCS, Bedok.

Managed to reach early, so I waited. The interview was quite easy, the "test" questions are so basic my first year experience would have made it through...only that experience @ GSK had made my answers quite affirmative. After that...walked out to Bedok, took train back to Raffles Place. I was rather early so I sat by the river bank while waiting for time to pass...then I went to meet up with Cellie.

We caught Happy Feet @ Tiong Bahru, it was not too bad an animation to say the least, so I guess it's worth a watch for fervent animation fans. Sent her back home, we noticed a "Pasar Malam" at her place so we went to walk walk a bit...and bought Tutu kuay and ate them up @ her block...den sent her back home...

Saturday (2nd Dec)

Woke up early to prepare my stuff...den went out to PS. Realised I was too early for a haircut so I went to the arcade and had a game or two of Puzzle Fighter (I do not know why my luck is so bad nowadays I need 2 credits just to complete a game of Puzzle Fighter)..after that I went to have a haircut @ Jean Yip PS...come to think, I've not taken the pics out. Haha. Shall do so now...

Ok done. After the haircut...still got loads of time so I walked around...after that, went to collect flowers...and off I went to PS. It felt a little funny people are looking at me holding a bouquet of flowers - dun bully me leh, it's my first time......

Reached Cellie's workplace...while waiting, spotted one of her colleagues...then continued to wait...she appeared from the other I just passed her the flowers...and the gift...anyway this day is actually a "celebration" for early bday since she'll be away to Japan on her we went over to Yoshinoya and had our lunch...and then off we went Hello Kitty Hide And Seek exhibition.

Certainly her favourite, we went through the different exhibits and by the time we arrived @ the mechandise, we spotted the limited edition of Detective Kitty and guess what, she bought it. Wow...she also bought Kitty cups too. By the time we're out, I have 2 bags - one containing the flowers and the other the Detective Kitty.

Feeling a lil tired, we went over to Marina Square and went McCafe and had Double Chocolate - indulgence! After resting for quite a bit there, we proceeded to Sakae Sushi and had dinner. One thing good about Marina Square's Sakae is that they do not have 2 seaters...which means space for our stuff :P...after that we walked to MRT and took the train down to Kallang.

It was a terrible mistake thinking we can reach Singapore Indoor Stadium by mere walking. First, they closed off PA. Then Circle Line Stage 1 was in the way, then the closure of National, it was a terrible long journey walking there! I was sorry Cellie has to go thru all these just to accompany me to watch a concert I've been awaiting for, but thanks Cellie...=) come again, Zhiwen (one of the kids whom I taught Para last time) happened to see us but she wasn't in the distance to call out to me so I didn't know -.-...hahaha...

If you're asking me how Emil Chau's concert turned out, one word - BREATHTAKING. It was lovely, brilliant, excellent...simply all the best in the 3 1/2 hours concert! It was sooooo cool, everything was great, mesmerised in his love songs and everything, singing along every song that I know of since his first days...he started off with 心的方向, his early song for a car advertisement. Every song can bring memories of mine, and being side by side with Cellie was a blessing to behold.

One of the coolest and romantic part was Emil singing 明天我要嫁给你...before he started, he mentioned this...

华健:这首歌我每个演唱会都会唱,可是这次有特别安排。。。在下的观众,如果有个叫琬玲(not sure if it's this spelling),请你注意这首歌。。。

Translation: I'll sing this song (I'll marry you tomorrow) at every concert I have, but I have special arrangements for this concert. If there's anyone in the hall by the name of Wanling, please take note of this song...

And off he starts his breathtaking song...along the screen beamed some additional subtitles of the life of a couple in couplehood for 6 years...about how the lady took good care of the guy while he was sick during NS, standing by him throughout these years...Emil sang halfway, stopped and had both of them up the stage! After some talking, the guy proposed to the lady on stage! I tell you...that is simply the coolest and most romantic scene I've seen in reality! It was so touching I was in no possible words to have described it!!! (still swooning over it now as I typed this...)

He continued his sentimental and love songs which was really lovely...and it was really good. Time passed pretty quickly and it was around 1130pm when we came out (I forgone the last song and a possible encore) and Cellie was sooooo tired she was not in mood for words...I'm really sorry about that, dragging her out the whole day after her half day @ work...had to wait the cab for quite a bit before it arrived, and I sent her home on cab...before making a detour back to Bugis area to join Pat, her mom and Weiming...

The night ended with me reaching home 3+am.

Sunday (3rd Dec)

Woke up around noon time, relaxed quite a bit before going to meet Cindy, my bro's fren. It seems her bluetooth has some issues so I went to help...nothing much I could've done, but nevertheless still tried isolating the issue. It seems weird Lenovo did not give out ANY CDs at all.

Rushed down to Tiong Bahru to meet up with Isabelle, and off we went Expo for SITEX. Walk and squeeze, squeeze and walk, we ended up eating instead of purchasing PC stuff @ SITEX. After wasting more time, we proceeded to Bugis. Nothing much, just spent some time and met up with Janet (GSK fren) and her fren Serene and introduced Isabelle to them as well. Chat and talk cock...den ended the day by sending Belle home, and then went on going back by myself. Shirley from GSK called to ask me about her laptop issues which I tried to troubleshoot as much. Oh well......

I believe my 3-day post does not justify my post topic at all...but well, my feelings are just for myself to know. I hope I'll survive and get what I truly deserve.

Celena, thanks for making my matter what happened, the good and bad (maybe ugly? LOL) still made my day. Thanks for everything.

Holding on your hand,
