the long and short of it

some randomness to begin the post

zomg, i've been busy ! i just got back from kay-ell and have been kept on my toes doing all those chinese new year things !
also some sad news coz my parents' friend's mum passed away and i've to attend the wake tmrw! =(
that's the second death in two weeks, sigh, the curse of growing old..
uncle yap's mum also passed away last week and i was in kl for the wake for a day.

anyway, a whole tonne of photos which i'll just upload in chunks.

its a little bit of soi, a little bit of sunset, a little bit of QE II, a little bit of the annual cny get-together at xuan xing, a little bit of M.O. (+I). S! and some other odds and ends of photos.

there are actually tonnes other photos on amy's, k.yin's blog/fb so go check it out if u're bored.
these photos are photos of me - the prettier photos of me (;

excuse my narcissim, its CHINESE NEW YEAR so i get to be a bit of a cow (;



PAINTBALL (last year! haha)

p/s: i'm second from right!



SOI 11



ok, toh-dai ! *furbish for enough*
yes, i've dug out my furby and its still great fun, teehee.

right, may the force be with collecting angpows,

oh and if u're interested.. a personality type-list thing i pulled of k.yin's blog: try it here

Your view on yourself:

You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:

You are a true romantic. When you are in love, you will do anything and everything to keep your love true.

Your readiness to commit to a relationship:

You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.

The seriousness of your love:

You like to flirt and behave seductively. The opposite sex finds this very attractive, and that's why you'll always have admirers hanging off your arms. But how serious are you about choosing someone to be in a relationship with?

Your views on education

Education is very important in life. You want to study hard and learn as much as you can.

The right job for you:

You have plenty of dream jobs but have little chance of doing any of them if you don't focus on something in particular. You need to choose something and go for it to be happy and achieve success.

How do you view success:

You are afraid of failure and scared to have a go at the career you would like to have in case you don't succeed. Don't give up when you haven't yet even started! Be courageous.

What are you most afraid of:

You are afraid of things that you cannot control. Sometimes you show your anger to cover up how you feel.

Who is your true self:

You are full of energy and confidence. You are unpredictable, with moods changing as quickly as an ocean. You might occasionally be calm and still, but never for long.

how accurate do you think it is? tell me your opinions ! comments are enabled, teehee.
mwah, ppl.

i forget...

i forget, i won't be around during the anniversary of your.. passing, so i'd dedicate a short message to you first, now, a few days early.

i'm going to go see your parents later with the other girls, and i hope, for your sake more than anything, they are doing better. i know you loved your parents a lot and it must pain you to see them suffering so much.
yet, know that we all miss you, and that will never change.
time has lessened the ache that you'll not be around anymore but i'll like you to know, you have brought us, the remainder of us, closer together.
i hope you're happy wherever you are, sometimes, i wished i belief in the afterlife because i know, if there were one, you'll be well looked after there, popular and happy and full of joy because you, of almost everyone i know, were one of the best people. you touched my life, you filled it with shards of gold, and aye, ribbons of pink.

on your anniversary -
very much do i miss you.

this will be the third time i'm drafting this post, haha, i've got no photos to blog.

anyway, i'll keep it short.
so, my baby left penang last night *sobs* and as usual, i feel extremely bereft of his company. though the two (threeish) days i had with him were already a gift, i nvr liked having to part from his company. and i hate not knowing now when i'll be able to see him again, if ever.

anyway, met up with my girls after i sent ash off at coffee island, some newish drinks place at gurney. i'll strongly recommend people.. not go there. it has a nice ambience but eek ! bad bad coffee. and surprisingly.. NO PHOTOS! LOL

had seafood with my parents a while ago and now i'm back, stuffed full with mantis prawn (;

i still miss you loads.

may the force be with coffee junction (it needs it),

and so another year has passed.
2008, a year of unexpected joys and sorrows.

it was mostly good and yes, i found someone i could rely on a lot, someone i feel safe with and truly happy with.
and yes, a true heartbreak with the passing of a dear friend, and even up to today, sometimes, i forget that if i called you, you would not pick up any longer.

it was a turbulent year, but still, in general, a year without worries where the future looked so bright.

and now, hopefully like the way i ushered in the new year, 2009 will be calm and uneventful for me, smoothsailing throughout.
as my mum said, she can tell we're getting old by the fact that we decided not to rub shoulders with hundreds of others, but instead, usher in the new year with a toast hoping for the best with loved ones.

i hope 2009 turns out good for me, for us, but whatever the future holds, i resolve to be ready for it, and to be there for you. i hope we all get our jobs, our PRs.. *sigh* life's no longer an oyster with the world ready for the taking, yet, i hope, for all our sakes, it all turns out.

happy 2009 people. we'll get through it, and celebrate another year in grand style.

love, ann.
