I really need to start making plans on what I will do before my life degenerates into a giant mash of bed book food. I MUST PLAN!!

When I wake up later, hopefully before 10am, I WILL MEET YING FOR LUNCH/BRUNCH. Then we will pick up zinc, who is finally peeling from Sunday hahaha, and we will have a cultured afternoon trying to bang some piano bits into me. Sounds totally achievable. Then dinner with the silly boy and if I'm feeling disciplined, bedtime by midnight (unlike tonight oops).


On a side note, I'm amazed how I haven't burst the limit on my NETS/debit card after my recent splurging. Ordered Supre, Threadless (omg 209.82USD wtfhowdidthathappen, the 9.99 sales are plain cruel T^T) and  today I went on a shopping trip cleverly disguised as a running-errands trip to get my ink stamps and bag. And other random stuff that I happily got distracted by along the way hahahaha. Camped at The Little Book Shop and Starbucks with ying+zinc to have waffles and well, starbucks. The new Hojicha drink is pretty nice! Green tea red bean is really just the green tea frappe with red beans, I'm pretty disappointed although I'm not exactly sure what I had been expecting to start with. Oh I finally read the first few pages of my BTT book! Achievement unlocked hahaha! #likeasloth

I'm in a really self-amusing mood at the moment whee~~ I'm also afraid to log into my ibanking to find out what's left of my account. I can't bear to look at the piteous remains of my 3-months' pay.

~~~~~$$$$$$ [    ]

And that is an emoticon of money flying out a window hahahaha. Right, self-amusement HAHAHA. Ok I need to stop being creepyweird. Oh yeah, I don't know if he comes here BUT OMG DUDE YOU MUST STOP STALKING MY SIS PLEASEEEEEZ. That stalking counts as being creepyweird too!

Goodnight world~!

Touching base

Hello, quick update on life~~

I've ended work already with my last day being last Sunday on the 17th. Walked away with a couple of abrasions after breaking in a new pair of heels oops. The day before, my auntie and I did some crude tinkering with the heels to make them fit better hahaha. She actually sewed the straps tighter so... who knew that could be done? Good thing she did though, I was tottering after the MP who just dashed right through registration and almost went off without us even realising he was the VIP. Anyway, it was Race Day so I finally set foot in the Turf Club and tried my hand at losing money. It was just too tempting with the crazy convenience of verbal betting counters with no queue. The whole venue just looked so posh, too bad I don't have the photos we took inside the dining area. Need to figure out who has them~~ It was a happy-sad last day, really exciting but somehow I'll miss my colleagues. The hugs and well-wishes were really nice :') Nevertheless, I won't miss waking up early every morning, squeezing on to MRTs to get to work and staring at the computer screen for hours on end. Not that I don't still stare at the computer screen a lot hee hee. But honestly, for a first job I think I've had a pretty fun experience. Who normally shops for computers and washing machines at work??? Preparing for the Ball and Race Day was nice too; I'm really happy both events turned out great and I got to attend them. (even though I sort of lost my day's pay at the Race Day, I can see why it's so addictive) I wonder if they've found a replacement for me yet :/

That aside, I've just confirmed my room for Angsana. Single corridor room with aircon! ^^ I'm really looking forward to checking in and all. It's so exciting to sort of be "moving out". So much more freedom but also so many more responsibilities. I have a feeling I'll just end up rewearing clothes a lot because I'll forget to wash them hahaha. I just really hope I don't hate my course/totally suck at it. Somehow I need to try and remember what studying feels like. Oh, I guess I should get to work on reading my BTT book hahas. Oh and I think I'll be bringing in lots of furniture to pimp my room hahaha. Too bad bathrobes are not considered appropriate attire, cause since I opted for a single gender floor I was hoping I could just go back and forth between the toilet and my room in a bathrobe instead of carrying all my clothes all over the place. I imagine the sight of me wandering about in a giant grey bathrobe with pink polka dots might be too traumatising hahas.

I'm gonna go get ready for bed now so that this panadol can fully kick in. Thanks to someone I can't get the image of grilled salmon pasta out of my head T_T

A random pointless rant

NEW LAPPIE! I can't believe how long I spent at the IT fair on friday and saturday, but after walking around being fickle for hours and hours I left at around 9+pm (the fair closed at 9 hahaha) on saturday with a samsung series 5 ultrabook. I hate to say it but on the outside it's mind-numbingly boring. It's a dull silver-grey that's about one shade darker than silas. What a terrible waste because the screen is awesome! It's a good thing I'll be spending more time looking at the screen than at the cover. The keyboard is pretty alright but not as pretty as the series 7's (who can resist backlit keyboards! They look like stepping stones to heaven which is totally what the screen is on the 15.6" version! I literally sighed in happiness just staring at that screen) If I were a guy (meaning taller, buffer and stronger; and possibly more into gaming meaning more sedentary use of a computer) I'd have gotten that and just carried that 2+kg work of art around because it's all worth it. Then every time I open it up I can just sigh in bliss ^^

Anyway, I still got the series 5 even though I hated how it looked but I was trying very hard to be less superficial. It's not to the point of hideous but it's kinda... ugly. And most likely going to be very common and even more boring. But those are really superficial points. Once I start using it and forget that it looks like a dead slab of rock I'm a satisfied girl. But still... there were prettier models. I liked how the super new 15.6" series 9 model looked but the keyboard was so flat and spaced-out I couldn't type on it at all. I like my keys to be springy ^^ The cheapest version of the series 9 was pretty nice too, except its 128SSD was a major turnoff because I'm a hoarder of all things useless and space-consuming. Actually, that 128SSD applied for a lot of ultrabook-type laptops :/ Oh and it was also 13.3" which is wayyyyyyyyy too tiny.

I'm not even sure why I bought the series 5. I never considered it until people started telling me about how buying a Dell laptop would be like "digging my own grave". (Ahem~) No one seemed to be able to explain why Dell is so bad but it was kind of worrying to realise it has such a terrible reputation. Or maybe it's just a lack of marketing? But the Dell Inspiron 14z was really appealing for me and I would have gotten it if not for all the advice against it and the extremely disappointing laptop screen. Everything else was pretty groovy, especially since it's processor is newer than the s5's and it has a much more unique look and feel. I can't get over how the s5 looks like Silas' anorexic clone. I need to name my s5 soon and maybe after it starts kicking my ass at chess I'll grow a little more fond of it. I'm still typing this on Silas though! For a Lenovo I'm really proud of it even though it's a lot slower now and my battery life is approximately 10minutes. The graphic card seems to have big issues too with my screen blacking out quite often. Oh well, these things happen with old age. (When I'm old and cranky I'd be lazy and slow too) The most important point is that Silas and I have history *big hug* ^^

Wow. I can't believe I spent this whole post talking about my lappies @@

On a side note, how did one day pass so quickly?!!

Sunday, June 03, 2012

I heard you were a wild one

It was a crazy night yesterday, got home at 2am totally exhausted. I can't believe how good the event turned out; the decorations were amazing and the arena was totally transformed. The guests were also all dressed in theme and some costumes were just amazing. There were even people going around with the giant red indian feather headgear. Some dude was in a horse suit that sorta looked like this

except he was all dressed up too as a cowboy. The horse head was just flying around wildly when he was jumping about on the dance floor. Some dancing couple also tried to do a dip and it was so sweet; they seemed a bit drunk though hahas. Oh and there were so many awesome fake mustaches going around and the people actually looked good in them cause they were Caucasian! Lots of cool accents flying around the whole night too. And hot guys and super sexy women @@ They're so very different from Singaporeans.

Food was pretty disappointing cause I missed the beef sirloin (whyyyyyy!); goodwood park how can you call it a buffet and run out of beef! Oh wells, at least I didn't pay $230 for a ticket @@ The beer was surprisingly nice! Very smooth and we were drinking it most of the night because no one seemed to be serving water. Tried the champagne and white and red wines too, pretty meh~~ Nearing the end of the event things started to get messy and everyone was a little confused and frustrated. Silent auction bidding was rather disorganised with it not closing at the right time and people coming in to guilt trip/intimidate us into letting them continue bidding. I can't believe someone would just randomly bid $25000 for a painting too in the live auction ._.

Ahhh I still can't get over how much effort so many people put into their costumes, everyone was so supportive and all dressed up. I somehow regret not slacking a bit more that night (I didn't get to ride the mechanical bull!) but oh wells~~~ work is work. I was sort of expecting the night to be less busy but I don't recall having much free time :/ Prize room work was fun but not as exciting as being outside and getting to soak in the whole atmosphere. Spent some time carrying a chair up and down the stage too and other miscellaneous saikang zzz -.- Mmm random thought, the nachos with the meaty sauce thing was good ^^

Oh I brought home a whole bunch of helium cow-pattern balloons but they weren't flying anymore by this morning :(
