Not shiok yet!

I know i should be sleeping ‘cos i need to wake up in 4 hours to feed Pinky but don’t feel like sleeping leh. Not that i’m not tired… i am! But whenever i get real busy with work, i like to stay up real late otherwise i’ll feel like i’m being shortchanged by my work! Just need that “stay up until shiok” feeling.

So how did everyone spend their V-day? I didn’t have any special plans… actually, V-day just isn’t a big deal to me. Clown asked me repeatedly if i was sure i didn’t want any presents for V-day… i said no. Firstly, there’s nothing in particular i want now (heh, the new Nokia 6280 & SE k610i that i’ve been eyeing are not out yet). Secondly, i find V-day rather meaningless – i don’t understand the background nor the culture nor the tradition behind it. To me, it’s just another excuse for shops & florists to ring in the ca$h.

Thinking back, i don’t think i’ve ever truly celebrated V-day. Let’s see… the cheesy-est date i was ever invited to was to Smooth Operator’s buddy’s gf’s birthday party (her birthday falls on 14 Feb). And by some quirk twist of fate, i don’t remember ever celebrating V-day with any of my ex-bfs either! BM2000 and i were together for 2 six-month periods… but they were both from Jun – Dec… so no V-day there. Hmm… with DT, i remember having to sit for a very very tough economics test after school. Gosh! I don’t think i’ve even received any V-day presents before! Let’s see… the closest i ever got to receiving a gift would probably be when socks went Swatch shopping with his army buddy but didn’t buy anything in the end? Wahahahaha. Ok… i did get a rose from someone in TPJC long time ago but i ripped that rose up while chatting with my classmates in the canteen. Heh.

Sigh… sounds so deprived… but i am tickled. Clown said that his mom was rather surprised that he didn’t get anything for me. Er, i didn’t get anything for him either. We just went for dinner and then came back to my place to watch “The Conqueror’s Story” (u should really catch this show. It’s Chinese history packaged in the most entertaining way)… i was hoping to catch a couple of episodes but unfortunately i konked out 3/4 way through the 1st episode! Heh… utter failure.

At the end of the day, i guess it just doesn’t make sense to “celebrate your love” for someone on a day designated by God knows who (shopping centres?). I’m happy enough that my current relationship has broken the “6-month curse” and that i’ve found someone who whips up yummy dishes (and he actually does it instead of making empty promises to do it), cares for all my bunnies (except poor Patience), and entertains a gf that animates her soft toys.

Wee!

My apologies

I was scanning through my old blog entries looking for this person’s blog’s url… couldn’t find it but saw a couple of comments that were posted quite some time back! Aiyoh, so paiseh. Sorry i didn’t see the comments earlier… not that it’s a big deal to anyone but i didn’t realise that i forgot to set a notification to be sent to my email add if someone leaves a comment on my blog.One of the comments left was regarding www.styleupcover.com. Seems like i’m not the only one who got a bad deal from them. I ended my blog entry saying “stay tuned for the outcome”… but i really can’t remember if i posted anywhere on my blog about what happened in the end.

Hence, just for the sake of completeness, i shall write a brief account here. I did get my styleupcover in the end…. and Iceman managed to find the link that shows u the status of your order. The link was somewhere on the bottom right corner of the styleupcover.com page if i don’t remember wrongly, in very, very fine print. Although i did get the housing i ordered, the workmanship was TERRIBLE!!!!! The colour of the photo on the back cover was not accurate, and there were burnt marks on the edge of the back cover (most likely due to lousy workmanship in attaching the photo to the cover). I also ordered white for the front cover but was given the navy blue one (again the finishing was rough) instead.

I was quite pissed when i saw the quality (or rather the lack of it) of the product. Wanted to send it back initially but when i calculated the cost of sending it back, i realised it just wasn’t worth spending even a single cent more on this stupid product.

So if u’re thinking of getting a styleupcover too, think again! And don’t bank on Sonyericsson offering any assistance at all. I had to wait like 20min before i could get someone to assist me over the phone, and the only assistance i got was this polite gal telling me that SE doesn’t know anything abt styleupcover ‘cos it’s a 3rd party product, and she thinks i’m the 1st & only person who’s ever ordered the product.

Crap!

Big Brother is Watching

Have u ever wondered who is reading your blog, if anyone at all? Given the vast expanse of cyberspace, i’ve always wondered if anyone other than my few colleagues & friends know of the existence of this blog. How do people find their way here? Do i pop up on Google (i do!)? Where do these readers unknown to me come from?I got my 1st known visit from a stranger a few days ago. I didn’t realise she left a comment on 13 Feb till last night when i saw her comment (albeit a really short one) about Pinky. I was pretty happy…. in part that someone thinks Pinky is adorable, in part that someone outside of Singapore found my blog, and left a comment. (Not counting all those automatic spam comments i get from idiots who just want to generate publicity for their blog.)

Curious, i checked out her blog too and found it interesting enough to explore it and guess what? I found this statistic counter that helps webmasters tally various information about the people that access their websites. Ah…. finally a good tracking tool to monitor who reads your blog.

Click here if you’re interested in downloading this counter too. 🙂

Heh… don’t say i didn’t warn u. I’m watching u….

Pinky has grown up

After not taking photos of Pinky the past 5 days, i went totally trigger happy just now. Took lots of shots of Pinky, and some of mommy Horlicks too.

It’ll be too huge to post all the pictures here so i’ll just post those i like.

My mom says Pinky is truly a “lop”… as in lop-sided ‘cos her right ear is floppy but her left ear is perked up. Heh. I keep telling my mom that when i go to the pet shops, all baby lops have unbalanced ears but the ear that’s perky will eventually flop down too.

🙂

Dinnertime for Pinky.

Chillling out!

No prizes for guessing who Pinky learnt this from!

A little late night exercise never did hurt anyone.
