my favourite things…

Lyrics | Maria - My Favorite Things lyricsI found myself humming to the tune of this song on my way to the train station after a not so happy day. While humming… i feel my spirits lifted a teeny weeny bit. Guess it really works! I pictured Maria in “The Sound of Music” dancing away on her four poster bed… with the 7 kids tucked into the bed on a stormy night… and then life doesn’t seem all that bad anymore!Well…. the past two weeks have been quite horrid in my own terms. Feeling tired and weary. Probably it’s a sign to take a long long break. Am contemplating resting for a good 3 months to recharge… and maybe even re-evaluate what else I would want to do with my life. Of coz, at times like this, being able to keep a job is probably a blessing and not a given. Hence…having my various financial commitments… I can carry on dreaming….:PThe next best option I have now is to simply remember my favourite things… and then I don’t feeeeeeeeellll so bad! All i want to do now is to :1) Give my M…

just say it…

all it takes is for two people to be less assuming, less demanding, more accommodating, less antagonistic…. and all will be well. With these constant misunderstandings, now she thinks you don’t care about her, and she thinks you are a selfish jerk…. It is no wonder you can never be compared to the other…. and watever you do can never be matched-up. This is what makes my blood boil! Sometimes…. all you need to do is just say it. Say what you feel rather than keep quiet all the time…or antagonize her. Time to stand up for what’s right….

eat @ mertius

Armed with our newly received “eat @ meritus” card, Hubz, MIL and I trooped down to Aquamarine @ Marina Mandarin this evening… Well… OCBC and the Meritus group have collaborated to bring OCBC card members an alternative dining experience. With this card, members can dine at the various meritus restaurants at a greatly discounted price…. and discounts can go all the way up to 50% for 2 dine-in guests. That’s what I call value for money. The privileges do not just stop @ the meritus group in SG…. but also apply when you dine @ the meritus resort on langkawi…Also…. while it is called eat @ meritus, members also get to enjoy special room rates at these hotels…Well…. membership is free for the first year… so no harm for OCBC card holders to apply for the card  and eat, drink & be merry!I was sure I did enjoy myself….although I would have been a little bit more appreciative it i could take my dinner a little slower, sipping on a good white wine. (of course… that will only happen if MIL …

Finally went for a second opinion, and guess project b has to take back seat for now as there are more pressing issues that’s in dire need of fixing. Can’t help feeling disappointed with myself… and of course sad, although i knew from the back of my mind that i am probably not in the best of health. As a growing kid, i always had problems in that area…. so this should not have turned out to be a surprise to me. I was probably trying to run away from what may be the truth… but am glad i finally got to get a second opinion after my horrendous experience with the first gynae i consulted. Anyway… I am just praying that all things will turn out just fine. And… at times like this…i am also glad that i have my jewellery making to  turn to. It’s quite therapeutic to be devoting my time, taking my mind off these not too happy stuff with designing pretty things for my customers.:) Once again… a sneak preview of what’s coming @ urbannook.com.

what a way to start the week!

First…. we were herded off to see the doctor to get ourselves checked for H1N1….Then….we went from clinic to clinic and finally found one that’s able to do the test for the entire defunct SD team….When we tot the worst was over when we were all pronounced  negative…we were told we are not able to go back to the office till 3 hours later as they need to disinfect the place. Sigh! Not the best way to start the day and a project critical week.

sometimes i wonder…

The past two weeks have been really hectic. In the words of a friend..”times are bad, so you got to work like hell to ensure you keep your job!” No doubts about that… but what makes my blood boil every single day is the constant stream of negativity generated by the people around.Sometimes i wonder… why are some people just so selfish…stubborn…and narrow minded. They will do anything…  paving the way for themselves to rise above…. yet indirectly cost others their jobs. Do they even know that they are being destructive… Why do they think that everyone else around them are incompetent? Truth is , it’s probably a sign of insecurity…knowing that there are so many smarter and better players out there…. and it scares them… so their first line of defense is to smear shit all over the good… misleading the rest to also think good is evil… and evil is good. I am sick and tired of this crap. Get a life! Spend time working rather than dig graves for others… cos one day… you will find yourself dig…
