Heard a superb news from E today, she finally got proposed!!!! So happy for her! If me and BC have been running a marathon before getting married, then hers is a super marathon! They were together for at least a few years longer than mine and I am sure they have been through thick and thin these years, now is the final huddle to the beginning of another starting line.

Hmm, how long have I known E???? Since we graduated in mid 2001, we became colleagues in the same firm. My first impression is a demure lady with fair complexion and super black and long straight hair. I think we got closer while preparing the performance for the 'Welcome A1 bash', all the time of practising and dancing and all made us grew closer. For us, we seems to have this unspoken bond, she is always there for me when I need someone to talk to and I hope I have done the same for her too. Although we do not meet superbly often, whenever we meet up, we never run out of things to talk about. We even have the same fetish for hand made accessories! Sms, MSN and even the current FB are modes that we kept in touch.

If there is a definition of a true friend, I find it all in her. In times of help, she will be there. In times of joy, she will be there to share too. Even when she was busy with her new job which requires intensive travelling, she still bothers to make special arrangement so that not only can she attend my wedding but most importantly of all to help me during this special day. Never hesitating to offer help is her plus point. Even though she looks and behaving 'princessy', she is definitely not princessy and high and mighty. Given her slightly above average family background, she is still a down to earth gal who wishes for the simple things in life.

E: I am so glad to have a friend like you and I'm really happy with K's proposal! Don't worry about anything about your wedding, just let me know what help you need and I'll be there to assist you! :)

Last weekend was serious nuahness........ Other than went mass on Good Friday and Easter, it's basically nuah day and anime day for me. Caught up with Saiunkoku Monogatari and completed season 1 and now I am half way there in season 2! Yeah! It's really touching at some episodes that it brought tears to my eyes.

Sometimes I really find that my life is terribly boring. It's basically sleep, work, back home, watch TV and sleep. Even weekends are just wake up, maybe movie, watch TV, and church. Going out on weekends is a killer for us as we cannot cannot stand crowds. Singapore is so smaller and the population (whether is it in born or 'foreign talents') are is growing and growing. What the hell.......... as if we have more than enough space for ourselves to do the things we want. I would love to go the beach sometimes but transport is an issue for us. East Coast is far for us and West Coast is just not accessible. Hiaz........ I hate this place sometimes. My families and friends are here but the lifestyle just sucks! I wonder how long can I tahan here.

Saiunkoku Monogatari (彩云国物语)

I have caught episodes of this anime on and off and now I am back on track full force once again!!!! Hahahaa. I so LOOOVVVEEEE this anime because the men are just so cute!!! Hahaha.

The story, which takes place in the fictional medieval empire of Saiunkoku, follows the adventures of Kou Shuurei, a descendant of a noble family that has fallen on hard times. Her father works as a librarian in the Imperial palace, a post which offers prestige and respect, but little compensation. Shuurei teaches in the temple school and works odd jobs to make ends meet, but her dream is to pass the imperial examinations and take a post in government, a path forbidden to women.

Shuurei's plans come to an abrupt halt when the Emperor's Grand Advisor makes a startling offer, which is joining the imperial household for six months as the young Emperor's consort, and teach the Emperor to be a responsible ruler. If she succeeds, the financial reward will be great.

The story details Shuurei's growing relationships with the Emperor and other members of the court, the intrigues that surround imperial politics, and her commitment to better herself and her country.

Ain't they handsome????

Sky Of Love

Watched this movie with J this evening and it's another one of those sweet first and true love story of 2 teenagers. Obviously a tear jerking show and guess what? There is actually someone in the cinema who cried until quite jialat! Needless to say, someone died in this show and this show is really touching that I couldn't control my tears as well.

This kind of sweet first love can really ONLY exist in shows. I hardly believe such sweet love exist in real life. Maybe because I have never seen first love in real life developing into something concrete like a happily ever after story that's why I think it doesn't exist. But on the other hand, it also seems that first love seems to not be something that we can 拥有, it's meant to be kept in the memory 'bank' and for us to think back when we are older. I think I am too practical to experience the sweetness of first love, haha.

I miss my weekend........ and today is only Monday. I have to wait for another 4 more days before I can even smell the weekend. Hiaz......

It has been a tiring weekend for me. The part time maid did not come for cleaning thus I have to do my own cleaning. It's tiring but at least I felt that I exercised abit, haha. Did the usual vacuuming and mopping and changed and washed the curtains. The curtains are so dirty!!!! Yucks...... I actually had to soak the curtains for a while, scrub them slightly and double wash in the washing machine before the dirt and dust comes off. The climbing up and down of the ladder is really a good workout, I actually had sore thighs the next day!!! But it was coupled with some slight soreness at the back, luckily the pain of my old injury at the back did not come, otherwise I would be bedridden for the rest of the weekend.

BC said some women can hold proper job but cannot do housework, some can do housework but cannot hold proper job but at least I can hold a proper job and also do housework. I actually felt proud when he made that statement and in a way, I do have a sense of 'achievement' when I cleaned the house by myself on Saturday while BC was out. Sometimes I find that I am quite 'fan jian', if I do the housework by myself, I felt a sense of achievement but I feel tired after that. But if BC does help me, somehow I find him more of a hindrance than help. That's why in conclusion, having a part time cleaner is still the best. 90% of the time can get her to clean, the remaining 10% I can clean if I am in the mood to clean. Hahaha.

Thank you all!

It has been a month after my wedding and to thank all my jie meis and xiong dis for their help on our big day, we have decided to throw a thank you party and give them some treats at my place. Although we are not treating to any expensive food (with normal food like pizzas, cakes, home-cooked pastas and chicken wings), we certainly had a good time catching up. Some of the jie mei and xiong dis were unable to attend due to work, family or health but most of us had a good time chatting and watching 'Lust Caution' on my new DVD player connected via don't know what better cable that gives better quality resolution on my TV.

I really appreciate the presence of my family and friends around me. They were there for me when I am down or happy. It's these people around me that sometimes make me feel that life is worth living for and maybe there is really a purpose in life for me.

We usually don't know how to appreciate the people around us until a major event or incident happens. After all the events that happen to me, I have learnt some precious lessons that I will always remember:-

1) Family will always love me, NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS
2) Treasure my precious friends that I have now.
3) Some people are just not worth waiting for.
