Sad songs never fail me. =P








I remembered asking a mentor: "You ever regretted making any decisions before?"
Wah.. I suddenly turned serious. LOL~~! Returning my seriousness, he remarked that there will always be in the course of our lives, work wise, relationship wise, family wise etc... Over my 24 years, I have (or so I thought) accumulated a long list of regrets le lor. Mistakes, errors and wrong moves have made me grow mentally and I learnt to appreciate the smaller things in life. I'm still trying to improve on my fast acting temper that always end up in me making rash decisions or moves.

Evading Games

*~~Chuckles~~* I received an email from someone not long ago. There's no doubt that that individual is currently doing network marketing. To be totally frank, I find this person a loser. Given my usual character, I would have at least replied nicely and politely.

In the past, he initiated talk with me in pretext of wanting to know more of this kinda marketing strategy. Then he started to express interest in coming for my company's presentations. He turned out to be just wasting my time. What was thought to be a mutual agreement that new updates to be sent to him, turned out to be empty promises and getting totally no replies from his side. You wasting my time boy! I wonder why I even took time out to explain upon YOUR request. Please la.. Want to do network marketing then you should have build your foundation or records properly right at the start ma.

Now that its your turn to wanna entice pple into your company, I'm afraid I can only say SORRY, you lost your integrity to begin with and my thrust in you. I can also play the evading game with you now lor. =) Please go learn from those people who does it right. At least I still warm up to them.

Impressionable Experience

Yet another cup of cereal. All thanks to my braces.

Met Xiuyu the other day I was scheduled for my back brackets and bands. She saw my braces and we started relating our dental experience. She haven't been visiting a dentist for almost 10 years till recently. 没那么巧吧.... Me too have phobia going to the dentist lor... With both eyes widened and finger pointing, she gave a "dun tell me you too" look and said "Is it that YPS dental nurse??".
Wah liew... I thought I was the only victim lor... Look what this stupid, horrid, wicked and fierce lady did to these 2 bright futured gals... Our virgin experience was ruined and it cost me hell of a pain later on in life... Gee... These pple sure need to learn how to make dental a nice and pleasant experience lor.. I wonder how many more others like us there are out there le..

A change in topic...
The count of our toothbrushes in toilet is currently standing at 14 minus my extra one for braces. Amazing! That's like an average of 3 to 1 person at home.

Bach Remedy

Many dog owners in Doggiesite are sharing their views of using Bach Remedy for cai which seemingly helped their dogs as well. I should consider huh. The remedies works for humans as well.

Doggie Outing?

Hm... Haven't been bringing cai out for a run le. He must be feeling it that's why he's starting to behave like a nuisance at home. Was thinking a trip to the beach will be fun too hor.. Cherrie! Wang wang wanna date cai someday anot? We can bring the furballs out one of these days to sentosa! No doggie bag, I provide! Lets see if we are lazy though...

Relationship FAQ

Things I tot we should all take note of. I'm not a high EQ person as I tot I was. Perhaps that's why I needa unlearn and relearn. To many that I hurt terribly before, thousand apologies... I will be a better person.

Listen without criticism

It is probably one of the hardest skills to master (yes....), but it is also one of the most important. Try to listen to what your partner is saying without jumping in and criticizing him or her. Just listen, and accept, and try to understand your partner´s point of view. When your partner is done, try to say back to him or her, "You are saying ZZZZZZ, yes?" without being critical or cynical.

You´ll find that just making that effort to understand and acknowledge your partner will make a huge impact on your ability to talk to each other.

Conflict is Normal

Some people think that relationships should be easy with someone you love - that in a "good" relationship there is never any arguing. Some people actively avoid conflict, always giving in to their partner in order to maintain this illusion of perfection.

Conflict is a normal part of life. Dealing with conflict is an extremely important part of a relationship. If you do not find ways to work out issues so you *both* feel like you´ve achieved something, then when a really large issue comes along, you will not be prepared to face it together.

Think of the smaller fights as training grounds. Learn how to fight cleanly, without dragging in old arguments. Discuss the problem without personal attacks, and actually resolve the issues. It will help your relationship weather the years.

Arguing over Nothing

If you´re just sniping at each other, it´s usually a sign that you´re unhappy with each other, and not about whatever set you off at the moment. If for example your partner was jealous of you, your mate might show it by picking on you all the time. He/she might not feel comfortable in addressing the *real* issue and would show the discomfort in other ways.

You need to sit down sometime quiet and talk to each other, and figure out what is wrong. Each of you should tell the other what your top 2 concerns are about the relationship - and promise not to interrupt each other or two argue about it. Just listen to what each other has to say without making comments. Then see if you can find ways to resolve the issues - not to say "you´re wrong" but really find ways to help you both not feel uncomfortable.

Don´t ignore general ´picking on´ as a minor thing. Over time, this can escalate into something that destroys your relationship. Find the *real* root of the problem, and find constructive ways to address it.

Soulmates take work

Soulmates are not a pair of people who magically work together in peace and harmony without ever running over rough ground. Every relationship has its rough moments, and the key to ´soulmates´ is how the couple learns to *deal with* and surmount these difficulties. Non-soulmates drive each other away when they fight, and don´t learn from the arguments. Soulmates figure out what the triggers are, learn to anticipate each other´s needs, and as their relationship matures, get to the point where each really understands the other.

Two individuals in a couple are *indivduals*, and each person grows at a different rate and in different directions. You want to encourage each other to grow, appreciate how your growth helps you both become better people, and your relationship better because of it.

Soulmates are not ´found´ - no person can completely know another person when they first meet. You may *think* you know each other fully, but a lot of that is what you think is true about the other, and not actual fact. Soulmates are *built* over a lifetime of love and experience with each other.

One key is to believe in yourself, to believe in your partner, and to believe in the relationship. If you are always considering these three items when making decisions, and are secure that your partner is as well, then you´re on your way!

More Than Words

Many people have trouble saying "I love you". Others say it easily without meaning it at all. Don´t depend on words to know if your partner really loves you. While for one person it might be a once-in-a-lifetime statement that you need to wait a while to hear, with another person it might be a flippant comment they make to everyone who passes by.

Watch the actions of your partner, and judge by those. Does he pay attention to you, and try to make you happy? Does she smile when she sees you, and make sure you are an important part of her life? Those sorts of things are far more important than any words could ever be. It is far more important to FEEL loved than to hear those words.

I´m jealous - what do I do?

Assuming that you really don´t have a cheating partner, you need to think about the fact that most jealousy is rooted in the insecurity of the person who is jealous. Could you be jealous because you worry that your partner might leave you for someone else, because you´re not quite ´good enough´?

For some reason, you might not feel fully worthy of your partner, and worry that he/she will realize this and find someone else. Could this be somewhat true? Examine if you might feel unworthy, and examine my many other tips on helping you to realize your partner DOES love and want to be with you.

This is something only you can do for yourself. When you feel better about yourself, and more secure in your partner´s love for you, you´re sure to find you are far less jealous!

Having our own fun~~!

Breathe ( Faith Hill )

I can feel the magic floating in the air
Being with you gets me that way
I watch the sunlight dance across your face
And I've never been this swept away
All my thoughts just seem to settle on the breeze
When I'm lying wrapped up in your arms
The whole world just fades away the only thing
I hear is the beating of your heart

And I can feel you breathe, just watching over me
And suddenly I'm melting into you
There's nothing left to prove Baby, all we need is just to be
Caught up in a touch, a slow and steady rush
Baby, isn't that the way that love's supposed to be?
I can feel you breathe
Just breathe

In a way I know my heart is waking up
As all the walls come tumbling down
Closer than I've ever felt before
And I know and you know
There's no need for words right now

'Cause I can feel you breathe, just watching over me
And suddenly I'm melting into you
There's nothing left to prove Baby, all we need is just to be
Caught up in a touch, a slow and steady rush
Baby, isn't that the way that love's supposed to be?
I can feel you breathe
Just breathe

I can feel you breathe, just watching over me
And suddenly I'm melting into you
There's nothing left to prove Baby, all we need is just to be
Caught up in a touch, a slow and steady rush
Baby, isn't that the way that love's supposed to be?
I can feel you breathe
Just breathe

I can feel the magic floating in the air
Being with you gets me that way

Who's the notti one?

After coming home from the dental one day, mom related her exchange with Dr Oh. Sis went to have her wisdom tooth taken out. According to her, Dr Oh was commenting after surgery that me and sis cant have been sisters cos we are both so not alike. While sis was quiet and demure, I was rowdy and talkative. He told mom that I must have been the naughtier one of the two. LOL~~ Yupz! I must really have behaved like a spoilt brat! =P Anyway, I always give pple the impression that I'm loud, but then again, I'm naturally like dat hor..

Mom gaffawed and told him he was wrong. (Sorry ah sis, I bao toe you on my blog. Bleh) As my sis is usually un-afraid to voice her displeasure and opinion out loud and clear, so mom will take it as a form of defience.

Hm.. anyway, sis was telling me just the other day how really different we were. Me extrovert while she introvert. I never thot it that way since I have heard her "scolding" her friend over the phone before which I have never really done so. Anyway, she told me she's only like that to her close friends, other than that, she seldom talks to the rest. We do inherit different traits huh.

Oh.. I do recommend Dr Oh for extractions and wisdom tooth surgery. My extractions done with him were painless. Sis's surgery was a breeze according to her - no pain, not much feeling of the pull. I recalled my horrid experience when the dentist was pulling so hard that my head kept bobbing up and down with each pull. EEkz! And Dr Oh bothers to follow up that evening on her to check if she was fine. I believe the rest of the doctors at Q & M does that too. Thumbs up~!

I'm just weird or wat

I'm a weirdo... I get overly serious over things unnecesarily recently. Someone's joke maybe another's poison. But seriously, I think I've been too edgy. Must be the lack of sleep and the pain from my braces. Ouch! I hate them seriously.

What a wicked game~~

Try it. Fun! =) Note that the game goes like this: You find the clues from the page ( or view pagesource to read comments) and decide on the next html link. You will just need to change (in red)

New Pink Braces

And so finally I got pink braces. Was initially just uncomfortable cos of the alien feeling in my lips. Pain still came from separators. I tot at least braces are just not that comfy but I was wrong. I'm feeling the real discomfort now - braces scraping my lips ain't fun anymore. Sob..

Tuesday, March 21, 2006


In a mock anger, I chided Dr Zul yesterday.

"You never told me in advance that separators can cause discomfort and pain....! Hai me search online fervently to see if it's me weird or am I the only one who feels pain from separators"

Xchanges with Orthodontist and Dentist

Me: "Upper 4th, Lower 4th"

Dr Oh: "You sure you want the good one to go? It'll be a waste"

Me: "I dun want to wait so long leh... I wan fast fast"

Dr Oh: "Now, its a better choice. Sure to take longer but better ma. If you are my sis, I wouldn't even give you a choice"

Me: "I'll be 27-28 le leh... So old"

"Just nice wat!" Both my Orthodontist Dr Zul and dentist Dr Oh exclaimed.

Me: "You both keep psychoing me. Aiya, I'm so luan now.. You both die die waiting for me to give a verbal agreement to pull the baddie right"

Dr Oh: "Of cos"

Was at dental yesterday evening having my extractions done. Dued to extract 2 teeth to make way for my upcoming braces. The above conversation came up as we are deciding which tooth to take out from my lower jaw. I was supposed to have my lower 4th taken out, but Dr Oh and Zul were suggesting the lower 5th (i.e. the last 2nd tooth) which will take a longer treatment time due to the need to attach extra wires at the back, as well as bringing the front tooth back. I find it really a hassle to have that done since I had a few concerns:
  1. What if my last molar decides to drift forward since its going to be "alone" (More wires attached at the back and more discomfort)
  2. I have to wear braces for a longer period
But then again as Dr Oh points out, my lower 5th is really more worth pulling out since its got a huge filling job done very long ago and he suspects that I may need root canal treatment should that tooth decide to give up on me. He rather I keep my better lower 4th.

I am sure behave like I'm one spoilt brat yesterday cos I was lamenting so much. After getting my jab of relieve (pre-extraction), I was trying to get more opinions from everyone regarding which tooth to pluck. Then I ended up asking mom as well. She kept going way off topic on and on and I was worried that the anestatic effect will go.

Me (with a pinch of irritation): "Mom... Can you dun keep asking about why must pull out so many teeth. Now I'm asking for opinion if that tooth should come out"

Sigh... So it was decided that the lower 5th to be extracted in the end. The extraction process went along well and I din experience pain for both teeth. However, brackets fitted in my Dr Zul earlier had to be taken off due to the new change of plans. While gauzing my wounds,

Dr Oh (with a tinge of sarcarsm): "Patients nowadays are wonderful!"

Ouch~! I'm already all so bloody and I still have to scale my teeth and make a new mould out of it. As expected, my mould was indeed very colourful.

Me lamenting to Dr Oh: "Pain.. Extraction not pain but now the pain's coming"

Was forced to take painkillers on the spot. The start of yet another painful process... BLEH

E-Filing Woes

My morning cannot be more hectic. Was hard at work with Income Tax e-filing... That's by far one of my most leh chey experience. Took me almost the entire morning. Not that I had difficulty filing online (Eh.. Comp Engineer grad, how can have prob with online filings) but more of the first timer blues...

Was happily anticipating my e-file process and had no difficulties logging in. Was smirking to myself when it happened... While processing my IDRS and upon submitting, I did not realise that my Income return information (not filled up!!!) was also submitted alongside!!!! URGH!!!! I suddenly wished I know how to stop information transfer immediately. Faintz... The start of the whole stupid affair.

Tried fruitlessly to re-access the e-files for my Income Tax but was prompted that I have already done so. To amend my e-file, I had to email to the e-filing administrator... Kaoz... given my horrid experience recently with liveless/automated replies from email help, I decided that I should try calling the helplines instead. A few futile attempts at the main hotline alone wasted like some 10 mins. Finally I got my call through to some other number I sourced online only to be asked to try another number. * I was already feeling my nerves reacting * Thankfully on my second call, a kind lady picked up. Explaining my folly and situation, the following exchanged begun:

Lady: "Mdm, you have to send the email as requested to the e-file with all the information you missed. "

Me: "I missed the entire Income tax information, so that means I have to type out the entire thing?"

Lady: "Yes"

Me: "Do I get a receipt of acknowledgement after I send my information and after changes have been updated for me?"

Lady: "I'm afraid not. You will only get a reply from our side that we have acknowledge your mail for request and we will do the changes at our side"

Me: "How can I be assured that the changes are made already then?"

Lady: "You have to wait till the tax assessment sent to you around May to verify and make amendments within 30 days if you need correction"

Me: "... Thanks"

I resigned to my fate... There's nothing I can do to re-amend online. So now its still resorting to emailing. Sianz... I have to type out loads of information, rechecking that they are right and lastly sending it out. As usual, I got my automated reply. How nice!

Justifying the Pain

I'm trying to justify if the pain I'm experiencing now is normal.
Okay, this article did make me feel that I am. LOL~~

Department of Orthodontics, Goteborg University, Sweden.

This study investigated pain experiences during a common orthodontic treatment. Fifty-five patients (12-18 yr) starting treatment due to crowding were included. Molar elastic separators were inserted bilaterally, and telephone interviews were made during evenings for a week. Pain intensity was assessed on a VAS scale, and pain medications were recorded. Forty-eight patients (87%) reported pain the first evening. The highest intensity of pain was reached the day after placement of separators (VAS mean = 43.7). At day 7, 42% of the patients still reported pain. Pain medication was used by 27% of the patients during the first 2 d, after which no patients used painkillers. While motivational factors and reasons for seeking treatment did not influence pain assessments, patients taking pain medication made significantly higher pain ratings during the days medication was used. Girls made significantly higher pain ratings during the later phase (day 3-7) of the follow-up week. Statistically significant relationships were found between 'late' VAS assessments and reported level of previous general pain experiences. The perceived pain from separators was comparable to previous general and dental pain experiences. It was concluded that pain is common after a simple procedure such as placement of molar separators. The experience of pain varied substantially among subjects. The intensity of pain was gradually reduced, but still more than 40% of the teenagers reported some pain after 1 week.

Dental Woes

It still hurts! Not from that extracted tooth but I'm hurting like hell from the separators put in by the othodontist yesterday. Pain leh!!!! Kaoz... eat bread also can hurt lor...

The Rainbow Bridge

Sat Feb 18: "Before u pass on, i hug you tight and whispered in your ears that I love you very much. If next life u r still a dog, pls be mine. Sorry, wait for me at rainbow bridge"

These were the words by Bobby's adopter Jing Jing. It brought tears to my eyes as I remembered the dog.
You may say that I have too much a soft spot for dogs, but then again, I have soft spots for so many things in life lor; okay except for pests and insects. It's always sad to be hearing such passing away stories especially when I'm the kind to put myself into that person's shoes. I know the time will come for me to face similar situations, I wonder how I will react man. Geez!!! I better not think too soon.

Kids' Analogies

Cant help but want to post this story here. Kids do come up with simple yet fantastic analogies.

A vet had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker.

The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy, Shane, were all very much attached to Belker and they were hoping for a miracle. The vet examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. She told the family there were no miracles left for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.

As arrangements were made, Ron and Lisa told the vet they thought it would be good the four-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.

The next day, the vet felt the familiar catch in her throat as Belker's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that the vet wondered if he understood what was going on.

Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion.

They all sat together for a while after Belker's death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up,"I know why." Startled, they all turned to him.

What came out of his mouth next stunned the vet who had never heard a more comforting explanation.

Shane said, "People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?" The four-year-old continued, "Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God, whatever you imagine him to be.
How You Are In Love

You take a while to fall in love with someone. Trust takes time.

You give and take equally in relationships.

You need your space and privacy. You don't like to be smothered.

You love your partner unconditionally and don't try to make them change.

You stay in love for a long time, even if you aren't loved back. When you fall, you fall hard.

Pet Therapy

"Parents and siblings forgive me for saying this but,
the undivided, ultra enthusiastic and estatic reaction of Cai is one of the things that make coming back home a warm and happy one."

You are forgiven bro cos I used to have that feeling too yah. It definitely makes coming home very pleasant and welcoming. I could also tell how much you feel for that little furkid cos you are always returning and asking for him if you don't see him greeting you at the door. He never misses doing so unless he's not at home yah. =) In fact, that very sensitive brown nose of his picks up your scent even before you reach the door step. You wouldn't fail to notice that he will be already standing guard, ears pricked and eagerly trying to peer over the gate for you as you approach.

It never fails to bring a smile on my face to see both of you roll around while at play. Such is one of those beautiful scenes I get to see at home. Cai's presence has showed us that love can be presented in yet another way. Somehow, that "motherly" or "brotherly" instinct as you call it will just emerge.

I know it sounds silly, but when the 3 of us siblings was fighting to use the bath last night (excited Cai included) and resolving the matter with that silly game we played, I felt fortunate cos it feels so good to be laughing and playing together again like we were young. Lets fight more! =P


I had a dream... Not a very good one I supposed. Bleh.. Thankfully it was a dream. Wouldn't wanna have it as a reality.

Technical Help Needed~!

Help din come from the forums. Was comparing 2 .dsp files and decide that perhaps I should just do something funny by copying some missing strings from one to the other.

# ADD LINK32 strmiids.lib glu32.lib glut32.lib opengl32.lib ARFrameGrabber.lib AR32.lib ARgsub32.lib ARmulti32.lib /nologo /subsystem:console /debug /machine:I386 /out:"../../bin/multi.exe" /pdbtype:sept

And the Link Editor DETECTS!!! Yeah....!~~! A bit 莫名其妙 cos I cannot find a corelation to what I have done and the reason to make it run. If someone can 指点 me how come I must do so to run, I'll be more than grateful. It's a case of "desperation turning into anyhow hoot" method that I got it lor. Cant possibly keep doing such things in future right.


I'm abit desperado now.. So even trying to seek coding help via blog.... Like it will really help la. Been posting helps into forums here and there. No one seem to be able to provide a solution wor...

Simple Joys

Indeed Sometimes all it takes is a child to teach us the simple joys and truth in life
Very agreeable oh.. But not only children la. It's always the smallest things in life that makes a whole big deal and difference.

Surprises and the Unexpected

By and large, life's always popping up surprises and the most unexpected (plus those unexpected things we do). For example
  • O Levels English ---> A2, A Levels GP ---> C6 (This is tok gong)
  • A primary school friend suddenly calls you up
  • Some mean nasty friend in college turning out to be your closest confidante after all these years
  • Someone telling you you are the worst of the lot despite thinking all your life that you are okay. bleh!
  • Doing network marketing (No longer though)
  • Going on a month's voluntary trip
  • Dad reading Anthony Robbins?!!? lol
Blah blah blah.. What's next? Life is sure interesting cos you never know wat's in line for you. Bleh.. In a real beautiful mood today.

Shin Corp Deal

When news of the Shin Corp Sale came up on papers, I probably din even noticed nor expect a big hoo ha. Afterall, its just another business transaction to me. Temasek wants to buy over any businesses? - that's their problem. No big deal. Afterall transactions like these happen everyday what. So when this sale created a big uproar in Thailand, I was more like "Huh? Need to react so violently meh?"

A willing to pay + B willing to sell = mutual gains + benefits (Good wat =P)

I thought Thaksin is by far one of Thailand's best PM. Deemed as a betrayal move by selling the national asset for personal gain, many is requesting for his removal. PAD is also acting on this chance to oust him I supposed. A typical case of 1 stupid action leading to a major downfall.

In the Thais point of view, I supposed they will feel threatened la. Afterall, if some other countries were to buy over Singtel or our Seaport, Singaporeans will also react that way ba. But then again, I supposed we ain't that crazy or willing enough to part with our national assets.

Now the Thais want Temasek to nullify the deal. Say null we null ah? If we compile, then it sure looks like we are easy pushovers.


I dun read BM for nothing la. She does churn up some interesting posts de lor.
I enjoyed this entry.


Was feeling that stressed bug yesterday cos I was embarking on a new project that needed me to refresh my coding skills!!! God.. After so long, I think I'm getting real rusty. You can imagine how pissed I got when I only changed a line of code and the entire program decides to generate a whole shitload of bugs and errors. Aiyo.... STRESSED la.

GF's frequently used word (aka 口头禅) "relac" is very powerful indeed I realised. I decided to give myself a break by forcing my eyes away from screen. So I Rested abit, Emptied my thoughts, Listened to some music, Ate some chocolates and finally Calmed myself down. Wah... It works~~! Solutions started to come to me and the no. of program bugs started to decrease. GF~~! You are such a darling la!


My blog has returned yes but I'm still perplexed how it came back to me. I thought blogger support was the one who resolved it. But their reply mail today doesn't make it seem that way. Perhaps it's a follow up from their side? Still.. I'm super grateful la. =)

What do you do when your complaints get unentertained? LOL post on blogs ah?
I do get pretty pissed off when mine generates no replies watever so. Though I do not normally expect a one, I was pleasantly surprised when SMRT replied my complain and took prompt actions. Bravo~~!

Then came the period when my blogger account was hacked (or so I presumed). I had no mood to write on the newly created temp blog, so I vented part of my frustrations by writing complain letters to organisations I found fault with. LOL~~ One went to KBox regarding shortchanging their customers. Haven't got a reply thus far. I'm just wondering if they did even read their mails. Well, I should give them the benefit of the doubt and presume that they have yet to read it. Okay forget about the fact that they have these disclaimers written on the website:
  • Prices are subject to changes.
  • The Management reserves the rights to withdraw the promotions without prior notice.
But, isn't customers always right?? Muahahaha Still hope they would at least write back hor.. =P
Well, my english teach wouldn't be pleased with me over what I wrote...

------------------------ Complain Exerpts ---------------------------------

"I like to bring to your attention of KBOX's services. Being a loyal customer of kbox for so many years, I regretful to say that I have been pretty much dissapointed disappointed (tsk tsk tsk... My english teacher will kill me for this) in the way things have changed recently."

"During one incident, your staff (Choa Chu Kang location) gave us a very lame excuse that the room was alr already (heck! Too used to shorthand) booked by a member at 2pm hence they need us to be out by 1pm. Around 12:45pm, they again suggested to us that if we would like to continue singing till 2pm, we have to pay additional charges for that extra hour. Since I was entertaining my client that time, I did not bring the matter up. But it really irks me to think that we were made to pay for an extra hour over our supposedly entitled 3hrs. In that case, your corporate website should not have given customers the wrong impression that members are entitled to sing from 11am to 2pm. This is a case of mis-representation!

Signing off....
"A dissappointed customer,"
disappointed (Wah liew... Tiew lian... Do I have to repeat my mistake twice??!!)

有些事情一旦发生了, 不管你如何加油, 如何弥补, 还是会造成往后的阻碍. 这应该是所谓的有因比有果吧. 我不能摆脱过去的一切, 但希望未来依然美丽. 很普通的心愿但犹如有巨大的阻力在阻挠.

Temp Posts

I just realised that I have phobia of the camera. Always turn out ugly on prints. Argh.. How to help when you look equally terrible in real.. Sorry, I cant help but have to rant on this abit. Imagine people getting excited on seeing the camera, I get the colds usually. Will only oblige to take when it is a group thing now. Cant stand thinking of doing a solo for now. Yes... I know I'm getting paranoid.... Has to do with either age or PMS.

I have half a mind to stop blogging totally... Really, everytime I wanna pen something down, I will keep harping on my lost blog and wanting to curse that Teddy person as well as blogger for nto replying to me yet. Wat the hell am I still using Blogspot???? I should consider switching to other blog engines like what some kind souls suggested.
Till now, I think that Teddy person is still fervently trying to hack my password cos I keep receiving mails regarding the claim for forgotten passwords. He doesn't wanna give up huh.

Okay.. I will cheer myself up..
This is maddening...~~~! Someone really did hack into my account and took over my original blog address at This person with the profile name of Teddy!!!! U are so mean... I've been trying so hard to reach the blogger support for assistance and they haven't gotten back to me!!! As if its not maddening enought, imagine my horror this morning to see him using my url... Devastating lor... I cant care less for the address url, I just want my past entries back!!!!

This person has abrazenly took many blogs with weight management issues tagged to it. I suspect mine got compromised cos I had some weight description in my html title tags. Kaoz... So now he has achieve his motive for wanting to draw more viewership from people who are interested in weight management to his main blog lor...

I cant believe my eyes when I logged on to blogger this morning. 1 of my 2 blogs vanished from my dashboard and it happens to be the main one I'm always posting entries to. I'm totally upset and frustrated that my help requests only garnered automated answers which are totally useless in my case. I have been blogging for almost 2 years and this is the first time my blog got "deleted" all of a sudden. Okay it serves me right for not backing it up, but it's too late to wallow in self pity.

I feel that part of me have been taken away. Anyone here can provide me some constructive help?


I'm totally depressed... My previous blog at has been deleted, hacked, flagged, u name it, I dunno what has happened to it. Was happily logging in this morn to find the entire blog gone from my dashboard. Ouch~~!! You can imagine how stunned I was. The first thing that came into my mind was.. Shit... My blog kena hacked!!!! I'm not even a celeb blogger or anything, who the hell would wanna do this to me? I really cant pinpoint... The replies from blogger support din really help lor.... Who can help me!!!!!! I want my past entries.!!! Heck the blog layout, I can always reconstruct a new one easily.

I feel like a part of me has been taken away le!!!! I can't help but wallow in self pity suddenly. Many memories gone... I'm a short memory person so blogging helps to relive them sometimes.. I have many posts that I saved as drafts too lor... Haiz... What an unfortunate incident. I hope blogger can really help me retrieve those entries... I will be so indepted. Sob... I dun have the mood to even write properly now..

Aiyo!! My little sis is my idol man! So happy for her..! She's scored straight As for her 4 core subjects for her A Level. How kiang is that??!!? Okay her GP isn't as fabulous but WHO CARES!!!! I hope GP wun jeapardise her chance of wanting to enter the medical field though. But I'm sure she's more than eligible la. =)

As a child, she used to complain how jia lat it was to be the last in the family. To her, she's stressed at times to do as well, if not better than her 大哥大姐. I recalled once during a mid autumn festival contest, my sis won the 状元饼 which to many believes that the person is destined to be a 状元. Ah... Ah gal.. you are our family 状元 le lor. =) I can only imagine mom's pride later on.

Since you did so well, naturally this 大姐 have to treat you to a sumptious dinner right~~! U name it! Where you want your treat? =P
