Meetup with April - Everything with Fries

And I know the background of this pic is a bit ermmm.. haha. but I like how I look and I like how my dessert looks! And these people are lucky. I'm sure I'm the type who people say 'OMG HAHAHA LOOK AT THE GIRL IN THE BACKGROUND, SHE LOOKS LIKE FRANKENSTEIN' when they take my pic by accident!'

Hi everyone! Haven't really been blogging because, well, I get bored rather fast =X
I know I really shouldn't though. Well but here's a friend I'll never get bored of! I saw her on the first day of school and she had such nice hair, my first thought was 'this girl's so pretty, she much be one of The Bitchy Ones!'.And it turns out she saw me too. Smiled at me and I looked away. So her first thought about me was 'The Unfriendly One. Hahaha.

But 6 years on, we talk NON-STOP about nothing at all. Which amazes me sometimes because our lives are so different and well... kind of boring, I must admit!

We've been on a food (and of course, dessert) rampage recently.... and here's one of our dessert sessions!  Look at our fooddddddd. Forget my diet, forget the superficial people in my life. I deserve to indulge once in a while!

Mine! Tandoori Chicken Sandwich! Super big portion!

April's! Spagetti. Tastes oh so unique. Bursting with flavour, party in the mouth.

As you can see, her spagetti comes with a side of fries as well. Carbo overload! But still super niceeee.

Desserts were 50% off. And when the waitress asked us if we wanted to add a scoop of ice-creams, we just looked at each other and nodded eagerly. Hahaha. I had no regrets! GIGANTIC scoopy of vanilla ice ream with the Warm Hazelnut Chocolate tart mmmm. The buiscuit's made of OREO! I wanna go againnnn. Too into taking photos, our ice-cream melted.

And what's a meet-up session with a friend who owns the iPhone 4 or 4s without a campwhore session :) I'd like to get one but well... I'll get one when I'm a millionaire. :(

APRIL!! Don't kill me for posting this :)

Photo of the Week - Who says Singapore's beaches aren't beautiful?

I've heard more than a few people say "aiyah Singapore beach all cannot make it one lah!"
Perhaps, they just weren't looking. Because I saw this.

Sometimes, you need to look at things from different perspectives.
Or rather, you need to LOOK at things, even when others write it off as plan/ugly/average.
If I showed you this photo without telling you where it was taken, you wouldn't have said East Coast Park, would you? Typical humans. (hahaha as if I'm not human)

Just random. One day, I'd like to save the world. Or stop a hostage situation single-handedly.

Not-so-typical morning madness.

Rather exciting, actually. You know how you usually feel when you're rushing for time?

Today, I was on the verge of being late. So I ran, no SPRINTED after the bus. In a way that would make a track athelete proud. Olympian, even. Bus driver happened to be really nice, and waited for me. The polite person I was raised to be, I said thank you with an oh-so-grateful smile. Walked down the bus with a bouce in my step, feeling rather smug. Because I. Love. Challenges. :)

Little did I know..... well actually I did KNOW after a few seconds.. TO MY UTMOST HORROR.... I BOARDED THE WRONG BUS.

Yeah time to wipe the smug smile off with antibacterial wipes and toss them into the incinerator or something. Oh all the buses to take, I take THIS? Ok let's put it this way. If I were to shut my eyes and get onto ANY bus that comes, there is only a 10% chance that I'd get on the wrong bus. Lucky, lucky me.

I need to walk to the train station. Oh gosh the sun is beating down on me relentless. Ok there is no way I'm gonna make it. TAXI TIME. *heartache$$$$*.

Ok too early to rejoice, perhaps. The cab's going at snail's pace. OMG pleaseeee I don't wanna be late!
And I'm staring at the clock as though if i stared enough, time would stop for me.

Oh what the hell. I'm desperate! This might be worth a try! So I held out my arm, and very dramatically, gazed at it with a piercing (and I hope) powerful glare that would make Edward Cullen jealous.

Nope. Didn't work.
Guess I've got no hidden inborn superhero ability, ready to surface at The Crucial Moment. Bummer :(

Wait, maybe this isn;t working because it isn't my speciality. Let's try something else...
Hmmmm... The cab is stopping at EVERY traffic light. If it manages to miss/beat just ONE, we'll get to miss all the subsequent traffic lights. Maybe if I willed it enough, I could emit some mental corce field and change ONE light.

*Stares intently*
*Stares even more intently*
*Giving it my all*
*I can do better!*


Did my superpowers work? I'd like to think so. :)

Photo of the Week - Pushovers

Wrote this more than a year ago in a private diary, and thought it'd be a good time to share this here.  I've come a long way, and I'm glad to say that I've shaken the hate and stigma off.  A few years spent in Camp Bully The Pushover has made me a stronger person, ready to face new challenges that await me. I'm sure this experience would be useful in my future endeavours, because everything happens for a reason. Even if the process sucks, it's worth it in the end!

The next time someone tries to mess with me, this pic tells all. Ironman, if you read on, is an Anything But. Which is where I'm trying to veer towards. I was a Forced Pushover, btw. :)
MESS WITH ME AND YOU'RE A GONER! I ain't no pushover! :@

Here's the post, I left it as it is.
I've been thinking about the wimp of a pushover I once was.Ok I still am, but not overly. What an idiot, but nevermind, that's over now. Then I look at other pushovers. What defines pushovers, you may ask? I don't care about the official definition. I think pushovers are people who are obliging and accomodating to the Point Of No Return. Ok that was an exaggeration. They're just obliging and accomodating people who fail to realise they they've been taken advantage of.
There are MANY different types of pushovers. I can think of 4 major ones in a snap. There are more, and some people are kinda in-between.. but yeah..
Pushover 1: The Natural Pushover
The 2nd word says all. It's an inborn talent. Inherent. Innate. natural. Nuff said.

Pushover 2: The Forced Pushover (FP)
People like that are not neccessarily born pushovers. Theybecome pushovers under FORCED circumstances. They have no choice but to grin and bear it when idiots go all out to take advantage of them. Forced pushovers are the most dangerous. They're usually quite tolerant, because they have to. Like I mentioned, that "You Can Push Me Around" trait was never naturally instilled in The FP. When when the FP's tail is stepped on too many times, The FP breaks. And bites back. AND when the FP has nothing to lose.. he/she bites back like a piranha. Idiots then become goners.

Pushover 3: The Unexpected Pushover
Why do I say 'Unxpected'? Well... People like this, they usually have every right to be anything BUT pushovers. They're powerful, usually high-ranking. The thought of takign advantage of them should NEVER cross anyone's mind. But no, they never, ever make use of that power, and they are amazingly sweet, tactful, obliging. I've never been able to study Unexpected Pushovers enough to know if they'll ever break. But.. it's been said that everyone has a breaking point... so idiots had better be careful. Once Unexpected Pushovers break, you know you're done for. Don't be too absurdly greedy, assholes! Thee's a fucking limit to everything, test your luck too much and I hope you die.

Pushover 4: The Anything But
So he/she isn't a pushover. I just had to include this to make it more complete. Heh. These are the people I look up to most. No one tries to climb over their heads). No one even has the teeeeeniest urge to push them around and get around something. People in the Anything But Category are able to hold their grounds (very firmly), and they have this aura "I can't take shit so shit better not come my way". Anything Buts are by no means mean/anal/particular people. They strong, and at the same time, respected, and feared upon by idiots. I'd like to be an Anything But someday.

Cameras I'm Eyeing

For the Sony one, at least. Which is this you see right now. The Sony NEX-F3. Saw this on the news a couple months ago (price was still TBA then), and fell in lurveeeee.
Semi-pro, and a 180 degree flipscreen. Interchangable lenses so that you can take photos of other stuff. AND, AND, AND, videos are in FULL HD!

My super, super dream camera. I'd call it my ULTIMATE dream camera if it's got the remote control function. Unfortunately, I just dropped by the store, and it costs about a thousand dollars so.... yeah. No go.  Writing about my omg-omg-i-know-i'll-never-get-to-own-this here makes me feel better though! :D

So I thought.. okay I'll stick to a more budget-y camera. This. Which I did almost buy a few years ago but ended up buying another one I ended up disliking *pulls hair*.  I have a good feeling about this one. Heh.

And then.... I was out shopping last week and came across this!

AND AND AND... IT COMES IN MY FAVORITE COLOUR!! Super compact, and the shutter soooo strategically located!

 Bye I need to go to the freezer or something coz I'm melting already lah.
*starry starry eyes*

Life Update

Will type tomorrow :)
Ohmygosh I swore that I'd work hard on my blog but...
I need to buck up!
Oh yeah and I went to the beach to help someone out with his portfolio.
Not many photos though coz I was too lazy to take my own photos by the time we were done.
Darn i didn't even take a pic of the sea!
Ok here's a pic!

Photo of the Week - Sipping Tea

I'd like to have a big house with a pretty garden someday. With a nice white table and cute water fountain just beside the table. I'd like to sip on tea every morning, and watch the little kids from next door run around, laughing and playing. And if possible, I want nice hair with loose girls that cascade oh-so-effortlessly down my shoulders. Haha.

Things that really should be illegal

1) Not flushing the toilet
I mean, hellooooo. You just need a BRAIN to do it, and everyone has one. is it that difficult to flush?

2) Sighing DEEPLY into people's faces
Don't need to smell your bad breath, thank you.

3) Being glued to the phone while walking super slowly.
Are you texting the hospital to reserve a space for you?

4) Crossing legs on the train and sticking it out for everyone to trip over.
Trains are only THAT wide. Wanna show that you have long, never-ending legs also not like that lah

5) Bitching about unmarried people viciously.
Because I'll rather be single all my life than to have a husband like yours.
