Thank you for a good 5 years… while it was short, you brought so much joy to our lives. We will miss you…and are glad that your pain has been taken away. Vespa – 7 Jan 2005 to 18 Feb 2010.

a second try…

One thing I love about being a chinese is the chance to have a second try @ making new year’s resolutions. It’s always easy to erase the resolutions made on 1st Jan… and create new ones just to make myself feel better. Or rather… to pretend not having broken any resolutions made. I told myself to face challenges this year with optimism, and control stress in my best efforts. Barely 2 months into 2010, I have succumbed and started getting upset over the endless piles of rubbish called work. Can’t help wondering if I am at the right place, and if I am appreciated at all. A sudden, yet familiar urge subconsciously takes over. The urge of walking away to find myself. Anyway… hope the year of the tiger brings all that everyone hopes for. I wish it will be a year of hope & joy… :) Happy New Year… and i want to continue to face life with optimism! 

happy lunar new year….

courage for the new year

Yes, courage is what i ask for in 2010. 2009 flew right past me… and looking back now, I hardly had the time to stop and reflect on the year’s happenings. In many ways, 2009 marked the start of many things in my life… like UrbanNook…..increased (& still growing) responsibility  @ work….. sudden realisation that I am turning 30 this year & yet have so much I have yet to experience…… most importantly, it’s a start of a long journey to get my first-born. And, this last bit is what i need the  most courage for. Writing this in itself takes a bit of courage. I found out months ago that I need help in getting pregnant. Although i always suspected i would have problems… i brushed it aside. I guess what i needed was just for someone professional to tell me so. But, truth always hurts yah? It does, and that’s why I kept it from everyone. In actual fact… i am dying to talk to people… dying to seek solace in people who understand the journey I am on… as the disappointment  kills me

komart.sg

I have recently switched from being a huge fan of almost everything bodyshop to today… a true blue korean skincare addict. Love skinfood to bits, but always found their stuff a little overpriced… so i would only purchase their products “in moderation”. This… is not until I found www.komart.sg . Komart sells a range of korean beauty products of different brands. Skinfood, The Face Shop, innisfree, Missha etc…. at fraction of the price u find at the outlets. And…. when they have their regular promotions, prices are as low as 50% off the price  we know. Used them once, and got my colleagues hooked! Service was prompt and staff were friendly. Website was user-friendly too… although i stumbled upon a mini bug… which was fixed quite quickly. Anyway… while they obviously don’t have the full range of products from each brand, like what you see @ the retailers… what they do have are the popular ones…. which we use so often. So… all in all…. this site is God-sent! :) Well…. just in case

my first run

Yup… took part in my first ever “mass” run this morning. Well, I signed up for the 5km… not the 10km one, but i thought it is a really good start. Running in an event like this was not as easy as i thought especially when some people were really there just to have a fun morning out. Hence for those who really wanted to test their speed and endurance would find this course slightly hard to go by. I found myself having to slow down now and then to maneuver past those who were strolling. Perhaps there should have been a rule where those walking should keep to the left and leave the path ahead clear for those who wanted to run. Well.. other than this, I thoroughly enjoyed the jog. Did not stop to walk at any point. and it helps a great deal to have someone to pace you. So, thanks to my colleague SW. I think I managed to finish 5km in about 45min… not ideal, but to me… someone who’s really never managed to complete her 2.4 in school… this is an amazing achievement. :)  The other thin

a recent favourite

Just finished 2 other twdrama series. Started with “A Game about Love” … led by Joe Chen and Sam Wang Shao Wei, and got quite impressed with Sam Wang. For those who don’t know who this guy is…. he makes up part of the idol group 5566, and also 183 Club. While he has been in the industry for a long time now, never took a second look…. and never thought much of him since his other group members always seem to outshine him. But, since watching this series… felt that he is charming in his own ways….and talented in many other ways…. dance lah, act lah, sing lah…. and now is an entrepreneur. Hence… I went on to watch “ The Prince who turned into a Frog” , and once again feel that Sam Wang may just be one of the not so fortunate ones to be the lead in everything he does…. and almost always play second fiddle to his group. But still…. my favourite for now…although a bit late…. (move aside Jay Chou, Wang Lee Hom and JJ Lin!!!!!! hahaa!)--- I can see B2 rolling her eyes now! I am going
