One good 'deed' deserves another...surely?!

Did I mention that I'm helping a good friend's husband do most of his MBA assignments? Sssh...
I admit some topics do spur my interest and get me going on the internet and even reference books from the library.

So in the course of doing so, it does offer insights to my current job, as well as, general knowledge. To some extent, yes, it's also a teeny weeny bit of an ego trip. :D

I Am Sick

For the 2nd CNY in a row, I fell sick.

I asked for it this time - tempted to try out 'interesting looking' snacks and without hydrating myself enough after, the bugs got me. :(

I consider this a slight blessing though. According to superstitious colleagues who believe some calendar from an unknown source, it is stated that for those born in the Year of Tiger, it be 'best' to start work on Day 5 (counting from first day of Lunar New was only 'good' to start work on Day 4).

I was thinking -what's the worse that could happen by going with the flow? I could certainly do with extra blessings, not that life had been rough for the past year. My family and loved ones are breathing, alive and healthy, troops went through last year's final exams with flying colours, jobs intact, bonus decent, a neat roof to live under.

Count thy blessings!

Rotten seed removed.

Teh c...

....soothes the savage beast.

The best! Milk tea @ Victoria Peak Hong Kong with the fam in Nov 2011 :)


People who know me well know I hate to shop.

Yes it's strange considering I'm female and living in a city since birth. I attribute this oddity to laziness. And what's to fault....Singapore is getting so expensive to live in!

Anyway I got this reasonably-priced-what-I-think-is-a-cute-enough-and-not-overboard-for-my-age pair of shoes last year and started wearing it on Fridays since that makes it 20 Fridays.....only?! Looking at them again only today made me realise... ...

The 'moons' and 'stars' are dropping off bit by bit!

I'm Not Your Mother!

I have 2 kids at home. Why do I feel I have 8 more in the office?
I await with anticipation the 2 newcomers on 30 Jan but am apprehensive that I'm this hopeful.
Time to set a few rules and hope they work!

Is it gonna be a good Dragon Year for me?

Knock knock...who's there?

Wait. I just went to 'View Blog' and this blog has sprouted 10 members????!

LAZY is my middle name

I haven't cut my hair in 10 months.
I haven't cut my toe nails since 16 Dec.
I haven't cut my finger nails since...mid Dec too.
I'm getting way too lazy...and unashamed too :P
