open house marathon.

open house marathon.

it has been crazy lately rushing for a car job lately and then having to juggle with the multiple open houses we’ve had (or having). last week was for my close friends, earlier yesterday was for relatives and my mom’s childhood friends and then later today will another round with my mom’s colleagues and friends. and then there will be another ‘gathering’ next month when my aunt from australia comes over. *shrugs* but believe it or not, even if it means having to work extra harder at home, i love having guests around. i’m generous like that. food is always aplenty, if not too much. so if any of you who would like to drive about 30-50km away to have your stomachs filled or play pictionary, you know my number.
i’m super exhausted but excited. a lot of things are happening and i hope it all goes as planned. you’ll know when the time comes. let’s just say it involves a lot of acting and putting on masks.

although freckles is freaking annoying, an attention whore and loves scratching cars, i still love them both heaps!

ok, toodles. i don’t really have anything to say. i’ve turned into an incredibly boring person because seriously, all that i can ever think about is work. eat work. drink work. sleep work. and $”#$ work. workworkworkworkworkworkwork. the new mantra i’m going to be chanting for another long week ahead. or rather, another long month ahead. i need at least a good back rub. anyone?

paws-perity new year?

paws-perity new year?

wow. it’s the 7th day of cny, me thinks. happy chinese new year to all those who celebrated. may the year of tiger bring you much luck and “paws-perity”. *ROAR*
i’m yet to celebrate my v’day since i was stuck in good ol’ malacca. nothing much to shout about except the heat was ridiculous. i think i was baked well and i even had rashes all over me. Grr… but on the bright side, ive managed to meet up with gerald whom ive not seen for years.


some random shots on the first day of cny. without photoshop SERIOUSLY sucks. anyone wants to buy me a new laptop?
i’m having some really close friends over tomorrow, just to chill. i’m stressed out cos i dunno what to serve them. *PANICPANIC*
everyone knows how much effort i put in when i ask people over. food is always in abundance, plenty of leftovers but im trying to change things this time around. very limited food cos i always end up with too much and having to eat them for days after that. ive just baked some (who am i kidding, it’s not just ‘some’, i think it was about 12 huge trays of them) of choc chip cookies. next, im going to figure out what to do with my baby potatoes, sausages, chicken wings, cheddars and stuff. mMmm… i love having people over. woo hoo. time to explore more recipes!
oh, and my deepest condolences to alvin tan and his family over the loss of his grandma earlier today.
toodles people. have to head over to strachan’s place and then… MORE COOKING!

dear diana lim,
i may not have known you well. it’s only been five months since we sat next to each other at work. i won’t deny it, that unpleasant things have been said about you by others, even before i joined this studio. but deep down inside, i know you’re a dear friend, sister, girlfriend, daughter and a colleague to all.
you’ve left us all in a sudden. it was a shock for us, but i guess god loved you more. painless, burdenless and the peacefulness that you’ve long seeked – i know you’re in a happier place now, or so says the vision your mom and aunts have seen. and that you can spread your bubbly and joyful personality with the rest, in that happier place you’re in now. take care, diana. it was a pleasure knowing you.
love,
becks.

i’m gleefully devoted to GLEE!

i’m gleefully devoted to GLEE!

notice how i only write when there are nice dates around? haha. BLAME IT ON MY DAMN INTERNET PROVIDER THEN! i am still living without internet in my new place. you bet it is so freaking frustrating. i feel so ‘disconnected’ without it.
but thankfully, ive got glee to entertain me. to bring some colors to my black & white life. i think glee has got to be converted to a religion. and i’ll be their most loyal devotee, chanting (or rather, more like singing) their lovely ‘hymns’ (songs). okay, maybe it does remind you a little like high school musical (i’m not sure cos i’ve never watched that gh3y show) with it being set in highschool and it is a musical tv series but trust me, the choreography, the arrangements of songs and their mashed up songs are incredibly brilliant. you’ve got to watch it. and if you’d like the song list to sing-a-long to, check out gleesongs.com.
p/s: have i mentioned that i’ll be spray painting my car today? FREAKING FINALLY!
p/ss: oh, and it’s my 51st monthliiversarii with iskii.
