sleepless in jurong west

i think my son needs a bigger bed now. his attempts to turn to his side to sleep and failing it is causing me to have sleepless nights and i often have to go rescue him when he starts to whine.

my only consolation is he takes 3 hour naps in the day. twice! ha!


white, jade green, dusky pink, brown, grey, actually i like all colours

egg mayo and potato salad, tuna, chocolate, ice cream, chips, celery (eww to some haha)


people watching, flipping through magazines, photos, watching my husband and son sleep, dreaming about endless other dreams, writing random stuff

jesus, husband, son, sister and my dad and ok, my mum too, sometimes

roses, chrsyanthemums, i like all flowers!

jeans and a tee, maybe the occasional dress

motto to above get-ups:
simple is chic. but its never that simple to be chic! hahahahahaha

in love.

0. cos it can add great value to other numbers when placed behind it, ha!


when my son is asleep, when i'm playing with him, when i'm doing my own stuff, when my husband comes home

hang out activity:
being with people i enjoyed hanging out with, laughing all around and being silly

gilmore girls, popular, gLee!

nail polish:
funky colours and glitter

ponytail, braids and bangs

ck be

thats all i can think of right now!

i used to think that having any bags to put my stuff in will do. so long as the bag looks nice, feels comfortable to plod around with and most importantly its cheap, i would'nt mind getting it.

until i got my first 'branded' bag that is, courtesy of the husband. what you pay is really what you get.

the excellent workmanship, the details and the genuine smell of leather just makes it so worth getting it. yes, i may feel apprehensive for fear of scratching the bag, spilling water on it or damaging the leather, but after sometime when you know your bag is capable of going through all these, thats when you know the bag is worth the amount of money you paid for it.

now i look at these 'branded' bags with a different eye. but i still love my cheap bags, ha!

i trust

whom have i in heaven but You?
and there is none upon earth that i desire but You.
my flesh and my heart fail;
but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

psalm 73:25,26

a million dollars

yesterday we played the game called 'what if i have a million dollars?' in the car on the way to dinnner.

john: i will turn it into 2

me: i will buy you your favourite car

john: you know what car i wanna buy?

me: hmm, aston martin?

john: chey, 1 million is not enough!

me: really meh?

john: ya lar, 1 aston martin cost around 700k liao

me: wah! then don't buy le, i buy my own things better

michelle: if i have a million dollars, i will invent a time machine to go back and know the 4d numbers so i can buy them and win more money!

my sister: invest and turn it into 2 million

do you think of what you will do if you have a million dollars? i do.

every single day.

of free shopping and a home boy

shopping is a blast when you don't have to pay for it, ha! i had fun 'shopping' yesterday, thanks to my sister who paid for me and because cotton on is having 50% storewide, its even more fun!

now did i just hear rubi is having a sale?

on another note, we have deduced that benjamin is a home boy. everytime we bring him out, he always look so grouchy or bored. but the minute he's home, he's a happy boy. put him on the couch and he'll be happily squawking away, yes its true! my goodness, is he a geek in the making?

anyways girls like geeky guys.

writing music

yesterday was the first time i heard led zeppelin's stairway to heaven. the wonders of youtube.

i wonder how the classic rock bands ever wrote their songs? do they write it while smoking their cigarettes and plucking their gutairs? writing their songs while high? (this i'm sure)

or do they write their songs while walking their dogs, having an ice cream, laughing with their friends, while contemplating suicide, drying their hair, going to the supermarket, preening themself in front of the mirror, arguing with the post office lady, taking a piss, catching a bus or just idling away?

one way or another, they sure don't write music like they do now back then.

zoom zoom

holy kaw! its june already, time is zooming by.

from my pregnancy to the birth of benjamin, its like literally in the blink of an eye.

he is getting so cute and adorable everyday, making cute but mostly weird sounds, hitting his milestones like flipping, putting his hands together, lifting his head albeit still wobbly and smiling and cooing and chuckles! love his chuckles!

it still amazes me that i have a child. a child of my own. not somebody else but my very own. at times when looking after him, i still feel like i'm just baby-sitting, but everytime when i carry him and hold him close and smell his sweet baby smell, i thank god that he is mine. though many people have said that he looks alot like the father, somewhere inside, my gene is around haha! like he has 2 dimples on each cheek, hmm think thats the only thing i contributed so far, woots!

i just hope he has his daddy's brains.
