    X__x.. heh so on Friday night I went to Meritus Mandarin for the Acuvue night.. it was something like dinner and dance =P but it was smart casual as requested by the other class =/ maybe everyone is too tired to really dress up for the event?

    Anyway, Pei Sung and Irene could not really recognise me at first X__x because of my rebonded hair.. haha most of them commented that it looked nice and I should have done it earlier.. but to me it looks weird leh haha maybe i need time to get used to it bah..

    The event was super cool, there was this tarot card reader whom I had a go at reading my love life =p and We took many many pictures lol.. the Mc was cool and the games they had for us after dinner was super fun =P our table manage to win in one of the games and the prize was a candle holder?! lol.. but they already gave us very good door gifts.. contact lens and neutrogena facial wash and etc.. lol

    After the cool event, I went to Alley bar with Irene, Pam, Al, ST, Jia Feng and Hidayah. It was kinda okay i guess we had stella beer X__x *gulp gulp*

    and we played certain games... lol =P

    Haha later I went to stay over at Irene's house with Pamela and finally I had a chance to see her cute doggie Cookie =P lol..it was pretty nice we enjoyed ourselves chatting for almost the whole night and when dawn came, I left home to change and get ready to meet dear X__x

    we went to harbour front and I was tempted to go shopping instead of Sentosa.. netherless we sat cable car to Sentosa .. so cool =P it's been really a long time since I sat in one of those things lol..

    It was fun and tiring , yandao practically drag me all over Sentosa.. and later we went back to his house to rest a while before heading to Suki sushi for dinner...

    X__x fun and tiring day

    and Sunday I went walking around Town with my sis,bought a belt from TOpshop at 13 dollars..

    ok tired X_-

    Friday, February 24, 2006


    So no more school 0.o
    but somehow I have never felt busier than these few days..

    lol.. On Wednesday finally went to rebond my hair in this saloon call Papilio...near bugis.. the effects seem pretty okay now but I wanted a brighter coloring =/ now look like black my base urghz.. wonder if the effect will be long lasting .. hopefully it is good and i will go there again the next time round..

    maybe next time can try perming again 0.o LOL I just cannot get use to the so straight look.. looks weird =X

    After that I went shopping with my sister and I bought a black skirt, a black top... ate at kfc with my sis and its scary how once u start shopping u dun stop -__-""

    We took a walk around suntec as well to satisfy my sis's craving for suntec wundow shopping then we went back to Choa Chu Kang.. diao... the Ice lemon tea in Lot One was having a sale lor... and we inevitably got sucked into the shop 0.0

    End up buying one brown mini skirt, one black skirt, a top and a pair of shoes 0.0 wah.. my bank account was literally bleeding. -__-

    Then my sis wanted to watch Final Destination three and she pulled me to go watch it with her....the show was great.. lots of gruesome ways in which people get killed.. but the plot was intriguing and i definitely felt satisfied watching the movie..

    FInal Destination 3 --> * * * * out of * * * * *

    Oh thursday went to some clinic supposedly to get some check up but the clinic was not providing the service and I went to poly clinic instead which was totally a waste of my time. -.-

    went to have lunch Burger king with my sis and took a walk around IMM...

    And at evening met my dear for a movie =P

    Rumour Has It.... ewww... what's with this family man.. the grandma mum and daughter .. hmm dun want to reveal the plot but the show was okay.. not that superb but it was average 0.o

    Rumour Has it --> * * * out of * * * * *

    lol and yandao finally get to eat the melon chocolate that he find was so so only... the lady cheated us 0.0 said it was the best selling chocolate =/ tasted nothing special...

    .. hmm as I was saying .. last night my friend called me up and she talked about certain problems she faced in her relationship... I think we pretty much talked for 2 hours or more.... and we hung up the phone around 3am.. ha ha..

    Hopefully.. she can get a much clearer picture in her head after all the chatting..
    It's funny how sometimes things change so fast in life that when we finally saw the notice, we do realised how far behind we had been and it is no longer possible to catch up..

    hopefully.. people stop taking each other in a relationship for granted and treasure what they have before anything happens.

    8:23 AM

    a lot of things on my mind now...
    and the music has put even more thoughts into my head...
    but it's late and I shall save my thoughts till daybreak.

    One bad thing to do is to postpone your Valentine's day celebration with your boyfriend.. Imagine.. like 4 people asking you the same question of...
    "where you going tonight?"
    Me:" Not anywhere ba.. celebrate on Weekend"

    It's okay when friends ask you.. but even when the lecturers start asking you where you going to celebrate tonight..and you actually have no plans, that's it. You can feel the sadness start to creep in. Maybe it was not such a good idea to postpone it after all.

    Funny thing is even though I was the one who initated to postpone the celebration, I was feeling bad enough that somehow everyone seem to have plans with their boyfriends, gerfriends, Lesbians.. you name it... It was urghz X__x

    Anyway the reason why I wanted to delayed the celebration was firstly, it was another weekday.. for sure I know my boyfriend would be tired and actually dragging him all the way to town just for a quick meal and all the way back home was really kinda mean. Secondly, He was still kinda sick... Thirdly, all restaurants seriously have overwhleming queues. Lastly, I still have a test tomolo X__x

    But saying all this, you start to feel sad when u see everyone carrying gifts and flowers holding hands with their boyfirends.. and for some it was a day of confession 0.0 PS , Irene and me actually saw some poor guy getting rejected at the MRT station... the ger refused to take his flowers whoa... and haha our cute Irene has manage to get another Vday gift from one of the Guy classmates again =X Last time was Ed this time it was LeeL. wow =X She really got the tao hua yun going on for her... I have so many friends but she is the one who really has a lot of luck in her love life =X wooOO

    Anyway as I mentioned, I was feeling sad and all that and you know yandao being such a nice guy decide that we should at least go out.. lol so I wouldnt feel so sad. X_x
    so we met at Bukit Panjang plaze.. and I saw this very nice Spectacle shop lor! I want to work there so much! X__x haiz please arrange for me to go there and work!! =/

    We ate at Mac Donalds =P and yandao bought me a cute flower that I wanted =P haha It is a cute flower with a cute face =P with petals saying I Love U. lol

    poor dear , he still seems kinda sick.. hopefully he gets better on Saturday where we can really celebrate our Postponed Vday..

    anyway when you r with the sweetest guy... every other day makes you feel special being with him already. and even though it has already been one yr, I still find him good looking when i look at him through my contact lens =D

    Maybe I am smitten with love?! haha okie I better stop before everyone starts puking on me =X

    9:29 AM

    Saturday, February 11, 2006

    wow first time.... I stayed home over friday and Saturday lol...

    Was really busy with the Fyp project yesterday.. haha stayed up till around 3am plus abt to reach 4am I think just to complete up my discussion part X__x....

    Went clubbing with dear on Wednesday.. and hmm weirdly we ended up in Devil's Bar. The songs were alright but the live band section was definitely better than the other dancing area where there seems to be a weird mix of Rnb with techno...

    The lady sure had a powerful voice 0.0

    Did not really stayed for long went back about 2am =/ had clinic the next day...
    Actually went because Yandao's friend ask him...

    Thursday clinic wasn't that bad =D I was lucky to get nice patients and Dr K even teased me being a "bao Mu" as both my patients were small little boys X__x

    Forced dear to take a trip with me to Teck Whye lol...

    Friday was super tiring... had to literally glue myself to my pc to complete my fyp stuff... so glad I finally finished it.

    Haha.. today was really busy at clinic... was very tired... the second patient was a 13 year old boy who was so hyper active... X__x lol I keep getting sweets from the counter to pacify him... Angie is pretty nice clinician, she talked to me and JF and SW while we were hanging abt in the dispensing room hoping we have default patients.. lol

    Oh haha so cool... saw HN's ex bf... I think he still chasing her lol.... He was her second patient... and JF"s ex bf was her third patient lol... he looks pretty good.. haha I told JF she should consider getting back with him.. and she scolded me for being superficial lol =X haha " Bu Shi Kan wai biao jiu ke yi le.." <-- quoted from her lol..

    X__x tired. brain feels dead.. One more week of school before everything is over.

    Long Way Home.. not too bad song =D

    Oh.. yah before I forget.. ST is so cool man =D She drove to school today.. so she drove me and PS to the MRT.. SO COOL LOR.. FIRST TIME I AM BEING FETCHED AROUND IN A CAR BY A YOUNGER GERFRIEND =D.. man so awed by her ^^

    and dear get better soon okay! =P We have to celebrate our nice Valentine day =PpPPp

    10 Ways to Poison Your Career

    By Kate Lorenz, CareerBuilder.com Editor

    It takes anywhere from three to 15 months to find the right job -- yet just days or weeks to lose it. Here are 10 traits that are career poison:

    1. Possessing Poor People Skills
    A little likeability can go a long way. Studies by both the Harvard Business Review and Fast Company magazine show that people consistently and overwhelmingly prefer to work with likeable, less-skilled co-workers than with highly competent jerks. Researchers found that if employees are disliked, it's almost irrelevant whether they're good at what they do, because other workers will avoid them.

    2. Not Being a Team Player
    No one feels comfortable around a prima donna. And organizations have ways of dealing with employees who subvert the team. Just ask Philadelphia Eagles Wide Receiver Terrell Owens, who was suspended for the 2005 season after repeatedly clashing with and taking public shots at his teammates and management. Show you're a team player by making your boss look like a star and demonstrating that you've got the greater good of the organization at heart.

    3. Missing Deadlines
    If the deadline is Wednesday, first thing Thursday won't cut it. Organizations need people they can depend on. Missing deadlines is not only unprofessional, it can also play havoc with others' schedules and make your boss look bad. When making commitments, it's best to under-promise and over-deliver. Then, pull an all-nighter if you have to. It's that important.

    4. Conducting Personal Business on Company Time
    The company e-mail and phone systems are for company business. Keep personal phone calls brief and few -- and never take a call that will require a box of tissues to get through. Also, never type anything in an e-mail that you don't want read by your boss; many systems save deleted messages to a master file. And we can't tell you how many poor souls have gotten fired for hitting the "Reply All" button and disseminating off-color jokes -- or worse yet -- rants about their boss for all to see.

    5. Isolating Yourself
    Don't isolate yourself. Develop and use relationships with others in your company and profession. Those who network effectively have an inside track on resources and informationm, and can more quickly cut through organizational politics. Research shows effective networkers tend to serve on more successful teams, get better performance reviews, receive more promotions and be more highly compensated.

    6. Starting an Office Romance
    Unless you're in separate locations, office romances are a bad idea. If you become involved with your boss, your accomplishments and promotions will be suspect; if you date a subordinate, you leave yourself open to charges of sexual harassment. And if it ends badly, you're at risk of everyone knowing about it and witnessing the unpleasantness.

    7. Fearing Risk or Failure
    If you don't believe in yourself, no one else will. Have a can-do attitude and take risks. Instead of saying, "I've never done that," say, "I'll learn how." Don't be afraid to fail or make mistakes. If you do mess up, admit it and move on. Above all, find the learning opportunities in every situation. Remember, over time, risk-aversion can be more hazardous to your career than error.

    8. Having No Goals
    Failure doesn't lie in not reaching your goal, but in not having a goal to reach. Set objectives and plan your daily activities around achieving them. Eighty percent of your effectiveness comes from 20 percent of your activities. Manage your priorities and focus on those tasks that support your goals.

    9. Neglecting Your Image
    Fair or not, appearance counts. People draw all kinds of conclusions from the way you present yourself. So don't come to work poorly groomed or in inappropriate attire. Be honest, use proper grammar and avoid slang and expletives. You want to project an image of competence, character and commitment.

    10. Being Indiscreet
    Cubicles, hallways, elevators, bathrooms -- even commuter trains -- are not your private domain. Be careful where you hold conversations and what you say to whom. Don't tell off-color jokes, reveal company secrets, gossip about co-workers or espouse your views on race, religion or the boss' personality. Because while there is such a thing as free speech, it's not so free if it costs you your job!

    oh man. yah why am I blogging at a time like this?

    I just woke up.

    Had a very bad nightmare and this time the dream was about me and not my family members.

    it was so real.. I actually felt the sadness seeping through my veins when I woke up and tears just rolled down from my cheeks. It was so real, so frightening, so upsetting.

    I think in the dream I had a quarrel with my dear and then I said something, and after that he wanted to leave me, he wanted to end the relationship.

    He refused to return my sms, never pick up when i call, and I could not get him through Msn cos he wasn't online.

    It was such a terrible feeling.

    It is like you lost everything u have in the world.
    I felt so upset that in my dream I was crying and crying and crying and my tears just dun seem to stop..

    love can make pple so fragile at times... =(
