Tell me why I don’t like Mondays.

Mondays are absolutely ludicrous. I never start actual work till after lunch and from then, it’s a madhouse. A madhouse!! Today was particularly trying, being 2 designers short on leave and me, trying to pick up the shoddy pieces left behind. Time to start crackin’ the whip. (Whip it good)

Plus, there’s absolutely nothing to watch on TV! Sleepy Hollow was on last night but at 11pm, which means I fell asleep after the first 4 beheadings. Gotta love a low-sat movie. Plus Johnny Depp had wicked timing for a sense of humour in this one.









I’ve retrieved some pictures from my phone – cute ones of little Cait.

Sunday is Funday.

So, it’s Sunday afternoon, 2pm and I’m sitting here watching Juno (awesome movie, points for Jason Bateman) and I have decided to do a massive post. I think I’m getting in the swing of this blogging thing.

I grabbed Adrienne’s camera this morning and snapped some shots of the Dolce-Bean, my little Bubbie. I deliberately did not post the pic of her with the chins. She’s got so much weightage on her!




She’s so beautiful. (Pause posting: Ants have attacked my Midori Coke, pack bastards!)

With my birthday upcoming, I’m feeling the mental (and somewhat physical) strain of this blessed event and so have done 2 pieces of artwork to reflect my anguish.

 Don Henley – The End of the Innocence (I’ve excerpted)

Remember when the days were long
And rolled beneath a deep blue sky
Didnt have a care in the world
With mommy and daddy standing by
When happily ever after fails
And weve been poisoned by these fairy tales

Who knows how long this will last
Now weve come so far, so fast

I need to remember this
So baby give me just one kiss
And let me take a long last look
Before we say good bye


Aimee Mann – Today’s the Day (excerpt)

Better pack your bags and run
Or stay until the job is done
Baby you could sit and hope
That providence will fray the rope
And sink like a stone
Or go it alone

And isn’t it enough for you

So better pack your bags and run
Send it to oblivion
Where you don’t look like anyone 
That anyone would care about
And do what you do
Till it buries you



And baby isn’t this your chance
To make a break with circumstance
Isn’t it enough to prove today’s the day?

Edward is holding a couple pics of our trip to the Park hostage, will post them up once he delivers.

Another weekend rolls around…

This week went remarkably slow for me – usually, time flies in ridiculous warp speed at work – but for some reason, this week crawled. I just felt like the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse were pulling me apart.

Everything and nothing at the same time.

I spent Friday night with Lizzy – cocktails at IndoChine Forbidden City at Clarke Quay, which is damn happening! Retro and RnB music. It’s like my worlds collide. Plus, the barkie’s cute.

We then moved on to, where else, Butter. Which was a little too packed and had this couple next to us who were practically having sex while dancing. It was gross.

This Saturday morning entailed meeting a printer downstairs to approve a colour proof (who said weekends are for yourself?) and Caitlin entertained us for the morning. Ok, so I mostly entertained myself with her Disney colouring book. She’s become so enamoured with Dolce and likes to mimic her.

 Also, thanks to Mish for ratting on the karanguni (rag-and-bone) bastards that plague our usually quiet estate.

FACT: It is illegal for them to be honking those damn horns. Mine start every weekend at 9AM and continue till 4pm.

I’ve also got my fix of US goodies – MAC make-up in my colour (because our racially biased MAC stores in Singapore have stopped bringing in darker shades due to lower popularity. Like, duh.), my Kiehl’s products (never buy them in Singapore – the jack-up is phenomenal) and Fig Newtons! Nummy treats!

New Beginnings

Ok, so I figured that I don’t “memoir” enough – mostly because I craft my blog by hand (and by hand, I mean fingers and mouse) and have finally succumbed to free blogware and cookie cutter templates. The plus side is that I may blog more. Maybe.

I usually have random thoughts and seemingly interesting things to say and by the time I get home, I have forgotten them in the dusty corners of my brain and lack the inclination to be witty. I also have devious plans to buy my own camera and take photos incessantly like every good blogger appears to be doing.

In the meantime, I’ll watch more Buffy.
