Cold and Wet

I was looking forward to a Sunny Singapore when I flew back from Beijing. But gosh, it has been raining heavily here. hmph.......how can I forget, it's rainy season now. Apart from the hassle of carrying unbrellas and getting my jeans soaking wet, I actually quite like the weather. Perhaps I've grown used to cold weathers. After experiencing the -11 degrees, the air con and rains that used to make me shiver is now nothing, haha :P

In my last entry, I wrote about the wonderful people I met during the trip. One of the gals, CRS, has been smsing me these couple of days. It's fun texting her. I wonder how are the rest doing, S, LRS and everyone.

The trip has somewhat changed something in me. I don't feel like taking life too seriously anymore. I mean, it's really no good leading a stressful life and always on the rush. Why do it if it makes one miserable. Somehow, my perspective of things changed. I'm beginning to think, one must always treat oneself well...... then everything else appear beautiful. Basically, never deprive ourselves.

Did I say that I actually took on a holiday job just before I left for my trip? Wanted to explore abit. But that means I can't meet Pachi for lunch until the contract completes. I miss Pachi and guys. Gonna call her soon, but meanwhile, it's many many things to settle and errands to run.........

Eight Nights In Beijing

It's hard to believe I'm back here in Singapore, sitting at my window seat.

The eight days in Beijing felt like the longest time. Let's just say, I almost forgot I have a life here.

About the trip.... hmph........ visiting the historical sites bring all that China history I've learnt to life. There's nothing like experiencing the real thing. Climbing the Great Wall was a dream come true for me. For several reasons, the Great Wall has special meaning to me. I wrote this thesis on the Great Wall and it won me a distinction. I stood in the watch tower and looked across the hills.... I was thinking, wow, I wrote about this part, now I'm here.........

I had wanted to climb higher, but I was fearful of rolling down :P

I met the five most wonderful kids during the trip. One boy and four gals. The oldest is 12, and the youngest is 6. Had he greatest time with them. I always believe, every appointment is devine. Set and planned by our creater, that we all come at this point of time, to this particular place ad get to know each other. Time always move us on..... and life always progresses, but I shall always bring with me, their beautiful smiles.

And next trip, probably I'll head for HK, hmph..... see how it goes bah ^_^

Monkey Eats Chilli

Have you ever fed a monkey with chilli?

I have, when I was like three years old. And it got so angry with me.

I wasn't mischievous, just that, in our farm, we kept a monkey as pet. Every morning, I'd pick some fruits and give it to the monkey. There was this morning when I couldn't find anything except chilli. So I decided to just give it to the monkey :P It got mad at me and started hissing. That was the last time I ever got near that monkey.

Guess what? I did it again today, I fed my pinata monkey with chilli, and it mutated!!!

I took a short break from my assignment and got my hands on my viva pinata. But only for a short while.

Currently I have three pinata gardens. One with does, squirrels, rabbits and foxes. The foxes are really naughty.

The second one is a chilli farm.

The third one is my fav. It has got horses, sheeps, dogs and monkeys. I used to keep a pony there but it wouldn't stop fighting with the horses. So I had to get rid of it, sob sob............. though I like it alot.

The game has been absolutely fun until Professor Pestor appeared, and I'm only at level 24. It's a total pest. It killed my prized mutated monkey. But I quickly off the xbox before it auto saves that scene.

Celebrate The Season

I simply adore this year's Christmas deco along orchard road. To me, they looks like golden apple trees. With the mushrooms surrounding the trees, there is somewhat a fairy tale touch to it. I thought they look fascinating. Must must must remember to take photographs of them.

He humbled Himself,
He went from commanding angels to sleeping in the straw,
From holding stars to clutching Mary's finger,
The palm that held the universe took the mail of a soldier.
Because that's what love does.

Viva Pinata

I hooked!!! Somebody help me :P

Yes, to this 360 game call Viva Pinata. It's about creating and taking care of your little virtual garden. You can plan trees, watch them grow and attract totally cute cuddly pinatas.......... ooohhh.............. they are so irresistibly adorable.

Currently, My garden has got apple trees, rabbits, birds, butterflies, fox, ants.......... etc............. and I built nice animal houses for them in my garden.
I've dug two ponds. Next time, I'm gonna plant more interesting plants around the ponds, yay :D

The garden is sort of an ecosystem, so sometimes, the animals will eat each other. Two of my rabbits got eaten by the foxes, sob sob.......... and the snake ate my mouse........... grrrr!!!!!!!! And I accidentally killed one of my pitana :P I was supposed to chase off some bad guy, then accidentally hit my pitana instead :( Anyway, I learned the trick. To prevent the pinatas from eating each other, you've got to keep feeding them with candies. I kept buying candies for my pinatas, especially the foxes, I dun want them to eat my rabbits.

Yah, it all sound really childish, but I'm simply hooked to it, just like many adults all over the world are.

I can't stop thinking about my virtual garden and what I'm gonna do with it. But right now, CK is using the xbox, so I've got to wait :( Whine............ no choice

A Mugging Small Fish

I was just checking out Small Fish blog and there were no entry................. again. Small fish fish has been mugging so hard for her 'A's. Sob...........This is the first time she feels so far away. Can't even get updates from her blog. Sad huh................

Did I say I hate exams.......... yah, I hate exams. Can never understand the rationale. Can a 3 hour paper really represent 2 years of hard work? Hmph, I certainly have my doubts. That's why I always always prefer assignment based modules.

Woke up to a morning full of thoughts about life, about people................... about how we spend our time. I guess I'm too particular about making things ideal, so that there will always be flash backs of beautiful moments. But what if the beautiful moments are spent with the wrong person, are they still beautiful?

Lately, I learned that life comes in seasons................. and phases. Nothing new, but never felt it so strongly before. Not every phase is meant to last forever, so sometimes, there is no real need to perfect situations in temporal phases.

Sounds like I'm talking Greek? Yah, typical of me.............. I'm just thinking out loud.
