Remembering the little things

Was out for drinks with a couple of colleagues on thursday nite, in an "sex and the city " kind of way..... where four gals sit around the table and bitch about men. One girlie was having some sort of silent war with her boyfriend. In fact I dun even know if he is her bf. Anyway... she complained about how he does not know how to read her mind. And..... how goondu he is.... doesn't know how to please a gal... (reminds me so much of hwa) blah blah blah. You can all probably guess the full list of grievences she had. The other girlie...was just saying how she feels neglected by her husband, when her husband thinks that there is absolutely nothing wrong at all. And... she of coz want to get her way.... so what does she do? Scream at him.... Not too wise i guess..... as she hasn't heard from him since the nite before. The third girlie...swinging single... and going gaa gaa over some guy.... who is just so ah beng... and so not worth her time... as he is obviously playi

What would you do?

If one day, your husband comes to you and tell you that he is considering taking up an overseas posting for a year... what would you do? For me... i honestly... do not know. Head says: Sure! Go ahead! It's a good opportunity & for career progressive, then why not? Heart says: No!!! Hell No!! I mean, it is not a simple yes or no question. It is also not a decision that can be made overnight. We are married. There are many considerations. And, i don't know if I can cope without him. Yes... it's a time to be independent, which i have no qualms that I am capable of doing so. But... for him to leave, and drop a whole load of weight on me.... to look after the house, care for his mother, on top of my already heavy responsibilites of my parents, my cousins in philippines + my work, without a pillar... where would that leave me. And, I am no matter what... not someone who can replace the pressence of my MIL's two sons. With one of them almost permenantly in China... and fac

Regrets? Have u had any?

Backdated to 16 June.... Location: London. Before I go any further into this post, let me just say... I am typing this in wordpad, while sitting in my hotel room.Well, there is wireless access in the hotels... but it is darn costly. GBP5 for an hour??!!! That's like S$15. Ermm...guess since the only reason why I need to go on line is to keep myself occupied...start blogging... or reading mails.. then why even bother right? I am really tired. It's been a very long week. Feel like I haven't had a good night's rest for ages. The week prior to this business trip to UK was madness, with all the rushing to finish up outstanding work and dealing with Hwa's last min secondment to cyberjaya (KL) for a month... and not forgetting helping out @ Aviva open over 14 & 15 June. Boy, am i glad it's really all over. Now... I just wish this UK trip will be over soon too. Anyway, if you seethis post dated 21 June or earlier...that prob means I succumbed to temptation...

Is it here yet?

For those who knows what I am talking about... The M is still not here after 12 days. I have used 3 sticks... and the result is still N. Looks like I am in for a great disappointment.

Birthdays. Birthdays are a time where u make demands, act silly, do whatever u want to... and people will give in to u coz it's YOUR ( plus all the other folks who happen to be born on the same day) DAY!. Birthdays are the best excuse to meet up with family and friends for a good meal... and be jolly. Birthdays are also often a time where people begin to reflect on what they have been tru the past year (or even their whole life) .... be it good or bad. I turned 28 last weekend. I did all the above except the reflecting bit. Maybe I will do it in here... and let you guys shake your heads at my less than interesting life. Being 28 means... in no time, I will be 30. Looking back... I have nothing to be proud of. After working for close to 6 years... I am still a puny executive, with a puny bank acct. At 28, I have no assets, maybe 'cept for my husband. The rest are all liabilities....eg. my house.....my car.... and many other things in my life. At 28, I have spent about one-ninth

Time to take stock...

Just watched the fund raising show by Mediacorp... for the peops in China...who lost their loved ones in the 512 earthquake. Well.... firstly.... kudos to media corp... and all artises who participated in this program. For a program of this scale to take flight in a matter of two weeks or less... it hard work. I supposed... as long as there is the will the help...nothing is impossible. And, this is as little as we can do... to help the people in need. Really... no amount of money can take away the pain of the many who are left all alone... with their loved ones all perishing from this natural disaster. The pictures you see.... and the stories the frontliners tell on national TV.... has tugged on many's heartstrings.... including mine. It is also time for us... the more fortunate ones... to be living in an area free from natural disaster to take stock of what we have in out lives. We have very often complained of the little things that are happening in our lives... like not wantin
