The Hunger Games

Picture from IMDB
"May the odds be ever in your favor."
Watched this with Eu today! I thought it was like the English version of Battle Royale. Hahaha. It's not very gruesome and it was quite interesting. But some parts were just... weird? Like how the host could control the arena and stuff.

I'm trying to get a start on the books but I'm reading the ebooks, and it's just not the same as a physical book.

Overall, the movie's not bad. I'd want to watch the next 2. =D

Week 1.95

1.95 because my week has not ended yet! I have a half day shift tomorrow. This week has been better! My feet are kind of used to the pain already, but not fully. Hahaha. People are nicer this week, and I got the hang of things for assisting doctors already. Maybe about 80%? Still don't understand some weird stuff though. So far, so good. Made more friends this week too! Finally saw the new girl who was there when I went to sign appointment letter. She started this Monday!

Hmmm. I want to try the rice balls at the QQ Rice shop soon. Looks interesting, like the Asian version of Subway. 

NO TIME NO TIME!!! So busy every weekend! And my cats are getting clingy. =D

New Beginnings

Today was... interesting. Being rushed off my feet and thrown into the chaos. Haha Let's hope I survive this and come out stronger. The thing about today was that I wasn't given much instructions, just told briefly and had to figure most of my way through. Hahahaha. Thank God for extremely nice people. I don't have a locker though. =( Still upset about that because the temporary location we're at doesn't have enough lockers in the pantry. =(

Overall, I kind of liked it. Other than the fact that my feet are crying out loud, me being hungry and thirsty, but man, did time fly by.

Charge!!!!

P.S: If you're bored, please check out this Tumblr blog I made for posting pictures I've taken of my cats and other random pets/animals I meet. >> Little Puffballs <<

Of E-Mooks and Crepes

I finally bought my first e-mook on Wed. Caved in to the awesomeness of stuff that came with the Japanese magazines. Although, technically you're just paying for the product. The stuff in the 'magazine' is usually related to the item like that season's clothes or something. Kinokuniya is awesome. Hahaha. Furthermore, Sis and I bought the e-mooks during the Kino Sale. Further savings! 

Biscuit camera! 
How could I resist, right?

As compared to the iPhone

The biscuit camera is very fun! Bought that on Wed, though I was eyeing probably all the e-mooks. Hahaha. Thanks Sis!!

Today, we went back to Kino again. Because I wanted to buy a small bag to put my uniform to carry to work. What better than a nice looking but affordable bag from a magazine? Hehe.

Fred Perry
I used to scoff at people who buy bags from such magazines, because it's like a cheaper version of the real thing. I eat my words. Hahaha. I love the bag. 


Inside the e-mook itself were the summer collection and while browsing, Sis and I were like "OMG I WANT THIS THIS THIS!!" Plus, Sis bought 2 Agnes b ones to put her work in, and those e-mooks.... I want all the clothes!!! The Japan collection one though. Hahaha. All the clothes are so adorable!!

Mazazu Crepe
Crepe at Liang Court!! Strawberry Banana Caramel with Cheesecake. LOVE IT. I miss the crepes from Japan.

My Girl (1991)

My Girl (IMDb)
Finally watched this! Saw a post about it very very long ago on 9gag and decided to try to look for it. I don't know where that post is located anymore though. 9gag moves too fast to backtrack.

It's very touching, funny, yet heartbreaking. A good watch though. I would recommend this. =)

Anyway, there was this poem Vada (the girl in the poster) wrote in the movie that I found very moving.

Weeping willow (from the film My Girl)
Weeping willow with your tears running down,
why do you always weep and frown?
Is it because he left you one day?
Is it because he couldn't not stay?
On your branches he would swing,
do you love the happiness that he would bring?
He found shelter in your shade,
we thought his laughter would never fade!
Weeping willow stop your tears,
there is something to calm your fears.
You think death as you do forever part,
I know he will always be in your heart!
Some googling tells me that it's written by Emma Jane Rae. I love this. Haha.

Watch the movie if you can get hold of it!

Good Deed = Good Day!

Yesterday (or should I say the day before?), I found a dog. Ummm. Close to midnight at the void deck near the carpark on the 6th? My first lost dog! Haha. Okay I sound retarded. Anyway, although I've never picked up a lost dog before, I know friends who have had. I know the usual procedures for a found dog, but at that time of the night? It just had to wait.

Shih Tzu!
I saw her walking around without a collar/leash and with no human in sight. So I decided to follow her around. Turns out there was nobody in the vicinity. She kept walking to this block of flats, so I thought she lived there and brought her up the lift to slowly check out the flats. But after trying 3 floors, I realized it was kind of late so I brought her home, intending to try again and bring her to the vet to scan for a microchip or something. Called Mum to check with her and she told me to bring home! First time. Haha.

Flufff
Brought out Thumper's old playpens and set her up in the kitchen while I went to bathe. I heard her barking and was worried that she might wake Dad. Thankfully, he didn't wake. I thought of shifting her into my room (regardless of the cats hahaha), so I gave her a bath. She was... smelly, to say the least. And I realized that her left eye was probably blind and her right eye was a little swollen.

Doggy!
Put her in Thumper's old corner but she kept whining so I let her out. She didn't really cared about the cats in the room so all was well. Hahaha. So fun to watch their reactions actually. When I went to bed, she kept standing on 2 feet leaning on the bed, asking to be carried onto the bed. =.= I relented because she started barking! D: Hahahaha. She ended up sleeping on my bed. First time having a dog on my bed! So fun.

Thierry was angry, but he didn't run away when the doggy approached him. Snowball was very curious, kept following the doggy around (I think she couldn't recognize a dog under that fluff). Muffin was terrified and refused to leave the scratching post, preferring to watch from high ground.

In the morning....... I woke up to people talking in my room. Mum and a couple in my room. =.= Hahaha. She heard the lady calling "Ah Mui Ah Mui" at the stairs and went to ask her about it. Turns out, they're the owners! And they live above us, not at the next block! And they've just moved in! Turns out, MuiMui the Shih Tzu sneaked out between the grilles of the gate which were a little too wide and went out for a walk. I have no idea how she managed so many flight of stairs. Haha Amazing.

Missing flyer
The owners mentioned something about a reward but Mum turned it down. Haha. Mum brought this flyer home when she saw it downstairs on her way to work. Cool. My first lost and found case! =D So glad the owners were found! Amazing that I didn't even have to do much searching. I wish lost dogs were so easily found. =(

And I had good news today! Haha. Is that good karma from yesterday? =D

To The Girl Who Changed My Life


Dear Diane, 

Things would have been so different if we hadn't met. I'm extremely glad we did and became fast friends. I still remember the times you made me go out with you after school when all I knew was to go home. Haha. Those were the days. We were an odd pair, you being so outgoing and awesome while me being the shy, geeky, awkward one. You changed my life, in more ways than one. Taught me how to love without holding back, being real to my friends, looking at the world in wonder and not fear, and more. So much more.


We 3 met us yesterday to chat about the good old times. So much fun that you brought into our lives. How the 4 of us came about. How we did crazy things together. How we grew up together. My secondary school life would have been colorless or would have nothing much to reminisce if you weren't in it. 

Lilies for you
Forever our princess
Even after we graduated, we still met up. Not often, but it doesn't matter if we meet every few months. Always felt like the last meeting was only yesterday. We always fall back into pace, keeping up with stories of each of us. We tell everything and anything. No holds barred. You were always just a phone call/sms/bbm/whatsapp away. It's not going to be the same, but we'll try our best, so you won't have to worry about us. Shine like the star you are up there with all the angels, I bet you are the brightest one.  


It's hard to say goodbye to such an awesome friend like you. Thank you for always being there. Thank you for changing my life. Thank you for loving me.

Love you forevermore,
Ling

Hurt

This is too too much. It hurts so bad. I keep asking why. Why you, why now? All our hearts are aching so badly. I keep tearing on and off. I keep trying to find anything I have of you. Just to look at you once more. To remember how it used to be. Don't even know how I should type this down but I miss you. So much. The thought of never hearing your voice again... The way you sound when you pick up the phone. The way you are always so happy when you're with us. Talking about anything and everything under the sun. Everytime we meet it's as though we saw each other just yesterday, not a few months ago. We always pick up where we left off. How do we pick up where you left us off at? I went mad looking for that notebook we used as a diary but I couldn't find it. Even after repacking the entire storeroom, checking my cupboards, everything. I found tons of photos of us, but not enough. It's not the same.

I miss you so badly, Diane. It will never be the same without you. You with your crazy smiles and mad enthusiasm for anything in the world come what may. I thought we wouldn't have to do this for at least another 30-40 years to come. This is too soon. I'm glad fate gave us a chance to be best friends, the 4 of us. My life would have been way too different without you and I wouldn't trade anything in the world for that. You said you'd be there for us, always. We'll always be here for you too. Don't forget that.

Please watch over your family. Your Daddy and Mummy are missing you so badly. Rest in peace my dear angel.
