hurdle 1: who goes first

for those who do not know, Iceman’s Malaysian so we decided that to be fair to relatives on both sides, we’re going to have 2 wedding dinners.  unfortunately, things sort of hit a snag ‘cos Iceman’s dad, being a very traditional person, feels that the dinner in JB ought to be the main dinner (in […]

Tip for Losing Weight

Forgot to mention that food poisoning is a fantastic way to lose weight.  My weight dropped to 43.4kg at the lowest.  It’s now back up to 45.4kg but my body fat % dropped to 16.5%!  Gasp!  Lowest it’s been in the past year man!  (Usually hovers around 18-20%).  Maybe it’s the diet of fish porridge […]

Pent-Up Angst

Guess what?  The person who threw my shoes and my slippers on my bed was my dad!!  He was mopping the floor ‘cos the contractors left a mess and he got fed up and threw the footwear onto my bed!  Imagine!  This coming from a person who insists we wash our feet once we get […]

My Ring

This is my ring.  :)  I’m very pleased with it of course since it’s made to my specifications.  Heh.  However, I didn’t quite get to see the end design before it was made… and am now toying with the idea of whether I should change it from a 4-claw solitaire setting to a 6-claw setting […]

Earning $$ from Blogging

Was reading Digital Life during lunch today when I came across the article about earning $$ from your blog.  The usual suspects came up – adverlets, nuffnang, adsense.  Decided to put the adverlets banner back on my blog.  Took it down in Jan and never bothered to put it back up ‘cos I thought it […]

Ha!  Caught your attention didn’t I?  Not that it’s entirely untrue… I am drugged – the medication sort.  The celebration for the last birthday of my 20s started last Thursday in office with the gals (Booze Queen, Bubbs, XLS, and Jess) planning a surprise celebration for me.  They got this yummy chocolate rum cake from […]


Iceman proposed. I said, "yes". Now for the tough part…

I’m proud to say that despite my short trip this time (arrived on Mon night, leaving now – Wed late afternoon), I managed to accomplish all the personal stuff that I wanted to do! Woke up a little later on Tue morn – 9:30am since the morning meeting was postponed.  Once Upsize confirmed that we […]
