3:24 am - It's been awhile, it's time to move on.
Moving on to boutade. Do update your friends' list. I love you all, and I hope I wouldn't leave the new beginning to rot again.

4:16 pm - Doo daa dee dum
Scanning my computer for virus now. I'm a little paranoid about being infected, because the hassle to remove the damn thing makes me wanna pull all my hair out. I realise that everytime I decide to go out, it rains. And when I decide to stay home, it's all bright and sunny. Ho hum, how nice.

My face is itching. I'm really quite pissed off with my complexion right now, and I'm glad I'll be visiting Dr. Thiru Moorthy this coming Wednesday. Phew. I read that taking antibiotics would only help for a period of time, and I'm considering going for skin peels. Yerps, that's how desperate and vain I am.

Yesterday, I was at Flowers in the Attic and I saw this GORGEOUS halter neck dress. I really wanted to get it (come on it is only $40), but Emily was right about me not having anywhere to where that dress to. How disappointing. So I think I'll just wait until next month to get a pair of jeans and maybe some nice tops (if I can find any). I'll be cutting my hair only during mid-feb because there's gonna be an extra charge for cutting hair during Chinese New Year season right? I'm not too sure, but I definitely do not want to fork out $700 on my hair. $300 is already more than enough, considering the fact that my father is ready to wring my neck any moment. Hmf.

I'm bored, bloody bored. Think I shall go take a nap. *Yawns*

AH! HAPPY BIRTHDAY NIC!! *hugs*

current mood: bored

6:16 pm - If only everything was in black and white.
I'm tired. Sleep last night was restless and I kept waking up from nightmares that I can't recall. During lunch, my brother was discussing the future, and he kept putting me down. He was going on about what I'm studying is pathetic and forever I'll be nothing. But I'm kinda used to it, my brother is condescending. He started talking about my stepmother and revenge, and it really scared me. He seems so bitter about everything and I don't know how to let him know we should just let things be. Yeah, my stepmother did steal my dad away. Yeah, she looks down on us. Yeah, my father cares more about his other family than us. But what can we do? Everything is fated, isn't it? Causing them harm, wouldn't do us any good.

My brother even talked about letting my half sister know that her mother is a slut. But why must a child pay for his/her parent's sins? I just feel sick to the stomach knowing that my brother carries so much pain and anger with him. Yeah, we no longer have a father who showers us with love. But at least my dad didn't walk out on us and not support us. I don't know. My family is so filled with vengeance and inner-pain that it gets to me. As usual, I would sit at a corner and observe, but I never want to see my mother or father hurt. I love them very much, eventhough they don't give me everything that I want.

It's a long story. And I feel sick... Maybe I'll continue later.

1:39 pm - There's nothing more to say; I see it all in those eyes of yours.
I'm sizzling. Have no idea why the weather in Singapore gets to me so much, but it seems to ruin every single optimistic thought in this brain of mine. Although, it's pretty windy, I'm perspiring like mad, and I suspect there's an odour emitting from my body. Yuck.

So, I'm planning to head down to town today. Yes, I'm willing to fight the crowd so I can go browse at the stuff I wanna get and then make up my stupid mind. Obviously, I've gotta be sensible now and not buy everything in sight. So now, it's down to loads and loads of procrastinating.

Heh. I don't really have any idea what I'm doing now. Just typing typing typing. Maybe I'll just go off to watch Days of Our Lives. Yerps, I will. It's called Television Therapy.

2:01 am - Everything you say; takes my breath away.

12:19 pm - I want love that won't break me down; won't brick me up; won't fence me in.
I Want Love - Elton John

I want love, but it's impossible
A man like me, so irresponsible
A man like me is dead in places
Other men feel liberated

I can't love, shot full of holes
Don't feel nothing, I just feel cold
Don't feel nothing, just old scars
Toughening up around my heart

But I want love, just a different kind
I want love, won't break me down
Won't brick me up, won't fence me in
I want a love, that don't mean a thing
That's the love I want, I want love

I want love on my own terms
After everything I've ever learned
Me, I carry too much baggage
Oh man I've seen so much traffic

So bring it on, I've been bruised
Don't give me love that's clean and smooth
I'm ready for the rougher stuff
No sweet romance, I've had enough

-----------------------------------


I'm in love with this song. Some of Elton John's songs are just lovely.

current mood: awake

2:13 am - Revolution, that's what I want.
I've got nothing much to say here. I don't know. Maybe because no one really reads this? I don't know. Ah, just still disappointed about the thing with my dad. It really happens quite often, and it just makes me feel kinda insignificant. My mom even screamed at me because of that. Sometimes, I don't know what's her problem. I'm watching Geri Halliwell on MTV now. She's really lost a lot of weight, and I'm bloody envious.

I was discussing this weight issue with Wenlene, and we both confirmed that a lot of Singaporean girls are shrinking away, while we're piling on the Aussie weight. I need to tone up, and get healthy. It'll be good for me, but of course I need motivation. And don't forget my essay, I've gotta get it done by the end of this week, if not I'm gonna fail. Sigh. I just don't feel like getting anything done.

Gonna do a survey before I go off to bed. Here goes:

03. height? 164/5 cm.
04. weight? 50 kg (I stopped weighing myself a long time ago).

02. music? Hip-hop; Rap; R&B.
03. makeup? Lots of M.A.C stuff involved here. But my make up is basic: powder, blush, eyebrows, and gloss. I really can't be bothered to really dress up in Singapore because the weather ruins all my hardwork.
04. bodyart? Navel; tongue; ear piecings. Shoulder blade; Lower back tattoos.

RIGHT NOW

01. wearing? My old St' Nicks P.E shorts and hockey jersey.
02. listening to? Geri Halliwell (She's on TV).
03. thinking of? What to buy when I go out.
04. feeling? Sleepy and disappointed.
05. where are you? At home, duh.

12. snuff or cigarettes? *shakes head*.
13. coke or pepsi? Coke; I think Pepsi tastes weird.
14. hard or mild alcohol? Hard of course; if you wanna drink you might as well go all the way.
15. matches or a lighter? Lighter; but I have my bad experiences with both.
16. sunset beach or the bold and the beautiful? I used to watch Sunset Beach, but can I choose Days of Our Lives?
17. rickie lake or oprah winfrey? Depends on my mood, but I think I'll vote with Ricki Lake.

WHO DO YOU WANT TO...

01. kill? Someone at my ex-workplace.
02. shag? Angelina Jolie.
03. slap? Refer to 01.
04. hear from? Ah, I don't really care.

07. look like? Nicole Kidman.
08. be like? Angelina Jolie.
09. avoid? A lot of people.
10. tease? Whoever is fun to tease.

Alright, I'm done. Before I forget, I need to write a little about how some people are irritating me. You know when I go out, uncivilised people see my tattoo on my shoulder (it's freaking hard to cover that one up), and they shout "HU DIE" (Butterfly in Chinese). It's really stupid and well rude. Cos most of the times, it's like the Ah peks and Ah Bengs who do that. That's really damn irritating, and because I'm quite slow, I don't realise they're talking about me until quite late. Gr...

Speaking of tattoos, IF YOU WANT A TATTOO DON'T GO TO JOHNNY TWO THUMBS. Yeah, Richard might be good, but PLEASE the service they offer is not good. First things first; he overcharges. My butterfly tattoo is fucking simple and they charged me $150, which is a total rip-off. And Richard promised me a touch-up, so a few weeks back I went back for one, and he said, "Ah the colour looks very nice, don't need touch up." It's like, FUCK! My tattoo is fading so badly, it looks green and blue now (suppose to be black and blue). And what kinda service is that? And they are kinda snobby, thinking that they are the best! That's fucked up!

My friend did my other tattoo for me, and his work is really good. A lot of people (other tattoo artists from rival shops) even praised his work. And he is very reasonable with his pricing. I just feel that, even if you're good, doesn't mean you have the right to rip someone off. Richard charged my friend $300 to touch up her ALL-BLACK tattoo. That's really ridiculous. So whoever wants to get one done, trust me, don't go to J2Thumbs. I can introduce you to my friend, and I guarantee you that he is really really good!

Yeah, so I've complained enought. Time to go to bed! Nighters.

4:17 am - Hee haw; today is morbid day.
Nothing much to say. I cried in public today. At Toa Payoh. Never want to show my face there again. So damn "unglam"...

Oh well, I think I've got rheumatism. Legs hurt. I actually wanted to go down to Mr Bean's to look for Weifang. Had to go home to pass my mom food though, and Jasmine and I weren't feeling too good.

Everyone's so damn selfish sometimes. Sigh. Ah, that's the way life is. Can't complain. I'm gonna go stone myself till I fall asleep.

Trying to end my life.

45. Do you like scary or happy movies better?
I hate it when movies get too happy. And I'm scared to watch scary movies, but still I watch them. So I have a love-hate relationship with both.

46. On the phone or in person?
In person. That way, it's easier to tell if that person is lying.

47.Summer or Winter?
When summer is not too hot; and winter is not too cold.

48. Hugs or kisses?
Depends on who they're from.

49. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
The way I think, seems like I have a very wired mind. Either that, or the people I hang around with are fucked up.

3:49 pm - Stress? There's no such word in my dictionary.
Ah, I'm busy emailing MTV Asia and Cleo right now. Being a little kiasu. I'm already confirmed at FHM and I'm supposed to start work next Wednesday; but then again they might play me out you know?

So well, I spoke to FHM and they kinda told me that if I go in now to work, I wouldn't have anything to do. So he kinda told me I can just go in for 10 days and he'll sign my internship letter that I worked for 20 days (My course only requires me to work for 20 days). So heh, I'll get more time to laze around. But my dad won't be happy about it.

I spoke to Cleo, and the lady told me that I just have to send my resume in and she'll try to fit me in. But these days, I don't have much trust in the media industry, so I won't be betting my money on this. I just wanna finish my internship, and maybe work a little more so I wouldn't be at home twiddling my thumbs. This way, I wouldn't spend so much money too. And maybe I'll fucking start on the STUPID essay! ARGH.

I wanna work at some cosmetics counter; prefably MAC. I'll have so much fun, and all the discounts will drive me mad. See; even the little things in life can make me that happy.

I've been thinking a lot of Ibiza (it's pronounced as I-bee-tha not Ee-bee-za) again. New York is my dream of a great future; but Ibiza is just a plain dream to throw it all away. I don't know. Sometimes I just want to be irresponsible and have fun. Imagine going to "Manumission" (I forgot how it's spelled), and going wild. They have life sex shows at those raves. Ibiza and Goa are the bombs. At least in Melbourne, we have EPTAS and EarthCore. But then again, the rave scene is getting so commercialised. Now you know why I'm never interested in any Singapore shit like Zouk Out? There you have it; an ungrateful little wretch.

I'm not very patriotic. HA.

2:49 am - Three second memory.
I'm a little irritated. What's new? Today I did something very stupid. I called Her World and Go Flirt, and they told me to email them. I did, but using the WRONG email address. And it was a from "the girl with the syringe in her hand". How could I ever do something so stupid. I freaked out, but the only thing I could do was to email them with the right address and explain that it was my sister's email account I was using. I can be such an idiot sometimes.

I feel like going to bed right now. But then again, I wouldn't fall asleep straight away. Some reading will be good. My mom isn't home. She's over at my Grand Auntie's place playing mahjong.

I've got this bad feeling that FHM is gonna play me out again. They asked me to wait till December and said I'll definitely get to do my internship there. And they're suppose to call me this week, no phone call yet. I tried calling them today, no one picked up. It's frustrating the shit out of me. I just want to finish up this damn internship, so I wouldn't have to worry about it next year. And of course, I'm dying to get some experience.

I called Her World last month and the editor told me to call the Fashion Editor this month. I was so damn excited, but when I called her today, they only needed Fashion Interns! Shit! I love fashion, but not being in that field sure sucks like hell. So she asked me to send her my work, and she might get me some freelance. I haven't started on writing features yet, and all I have are some crappy news stories. And, chances of me getting a try at freelancing for Her World? 0. I'm so disappointed.

I've got a lot to say, but so little time. And I always feel like no one's really listening. I've dedicated a lot of my life to listening to people, and putting their interests before mine. It's time to be a little selfish, no? But of course, it's a no can't do. I'll get hell if I even try to be a little different.

Know what I mean? *Shrugs*

1:37 am - The fairy of love.
What's with the title of this entry? I'm watching MTV's Singled Out that's why. Heh. I'm feeling pretty sick right now. My stomach is plain aching, and I have no idea what's wrong. I feel very much like puking my guts out. Sigh.

I emailed my lecturer yesterday to ask for an extension up to this Friday. I'm scared, really am. It's been more than a month since the date that my essay was due. And maybe it's a little too late now. I checked my results today and that particular subject wrote RW. That means Results Witheld. Argh. And out of 4, onlt 2 other were released. For Television 2C (Script writing & production), I got a Credit. Kinda expected that, cos my Script Writing teacher is one total bitch. She's rigid with the stories and always expects a boring ending, while we're more experimental. For Public Relations Writing, I got a Distinction. Shocker because I've skipped a lot of that class. I guess it was the neat handwriting that helped? HA.

*Whines* My tummy really hurts. I'll update later or tomorrow. Sigh.

4:15 pm - I love the voodoo that you do so well.
I'm going shopping. I'm going to shop away this indescriable mood. I am unmotivated. I find it very hard to do the important things now. I just want to sleep everything away and wake up with no memory. Like the guy in that show, I forgot the title.

I've never had a bad memory. Maybe I deliberately forget things. It's better that way, no? I'm going to get ready. I had enough of my nonsense, how about you?

2:19 am - Look at me sister, you're so mad.
Didn't do anything today. Nothing at all, but sleep, eat and watch TV. My mom scolded me cos I haven't finished my essay. I still can't get over the fact that she has a tattoo. She never seizes to amaze/astound/shock/whatever me. She even warned me not to tell my brother she's started smoking again. She claims that she's really stress and stuff when I told her off. She told me that she won't tell my brother about my tattoos so I've gotta shut my mouth. I don't want my brother finding out because he'll tell my dad, and there'll be this big hoo-ha.

1:58 pm - Sick; I'm sick in the mind
Last week, I thought I couldn't get sicker than the state I was in (runny nose and swollen eyes). Today, I'm purely the definition of sick. I'm suffering from a bad case of cold/flu. My damn throat hurts and my nose has been running since 6 this morning.

Did anybody watch the Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman MTV last night after Temptation Island? Oh man, Nicole Kidman is SO hot. I was drooling all over myself, and my mom was giving me this disgusted look. HA. Tom Cruise doesn't know what he's missing out on. DOUBLE HA. Did you guys know that the media has been speculating that Nicole and Robbie are dating? TRIPLE HA. I love Robbie Williams, but he and Nicole don't really go well together. But that's way better than being with Russell Crowe. *Shudders*

So anyway, I did more shopping yesterday and I came across this shop at Far East Plaza (actually I went into to the shop before, but this time I went in and tried on almost everything). I ended up buying a skirt and a top; and they even took down my number to inform me of their new arrivals. Their clothes are quite funky, and it's all about good mixing and matching. Blah blah blah.

I wanna get this new Prescriptives product, but it'll only be lauched next week. The salesgirl at CK Tang was being bitchy when I was looking at the products. Yeah I know they cost $70+ each, BUT oh please, she kept following me around. And after I said I was browsing, she walked off, but when she saw me meddling with some stuff, she came back to keep and eye on me. That stupid bitch. I mean come on, I have those products. Doesn't mean that when I'm not dressed up, I can't afford anything. I think I'll just go get it from Isetan next week. I realise that quite a few girls who work at cosmetic counters can be quite a pain in the ass. But I like the Bobbi Brown girl at Isetan, so I think I'll go to her the next time round. I appreciate good service, and I'm really polite to those who serve me right. As for the rest, they can go to hell and take their bad attitude along with them. I'm really a lot like my father; we demand good service and when we don't get it, we throw a hissy fit. But that's good in a way, cos I'm not gonna let any snobby salesperson put me down.

Actually, I used to keep my mouth shut and not say a word. But that was before I went over to Melbourne. In Australia, everyone's friendly and it's very very seldom that you get the occasional snobs. But I returned home for my first holiday in Singapore, I went over to Flash n Splash at The Heeren in search for a bikini. I eyed one and wanted to try it, but the salesgirl was so rude to me and she kept speaking to me like I'm some idiot. I asked her whether she had a size 8 (XS) and she rolled her eyes and said, "There's no such size." Oh fuck off! Size 8 is the standard size, and there's even a size 6. That stupid crappy bitch. Worse was she kept saying very loudly, "Don't remove all your undergarments when you're trying." Like DUH, do I look that dumb? She thought I was going to buy it and she was so damn rude cos I didn't dress like some rich punk. I ended up buying the bikini and I throw my card at her. Later on, I even brought my friend down and pointed her out and said real loud "That girl serves like she has something stuck up her ass." Haha. Very childish of me I know.

Funniest clash with authority was when I quarreled with the manager of Times Square (Takashimaya) Swensens. She called the security on me, and it was this whole big drama. Pretty dumb and it's quite a long story that no one would wanna read about. Ah, I'm stupid. I'm tired. I'm gonna go watch MTV Europe Music Awards 2001.

I spout a lot of nonsense. I love Heidi Klum. Yummmmm.

current mood: sick
