Part 2 of Previous Entry

hello public again,

My 2006 Resolutions List

1) lose weight.

i may have lost a teeny weeny amount of weight as a result of national safari but thats not enough. in fact, its never enough. i wanna be skinnier as in nicole richie skinny and those dior homme models skinny kind. my aim is to have a whole wardrobes of sizes XS and S. well, maybe a couple of size M for those i-feel-fat days.

2) go for facials and massages.

the national safari has simply fucked up my complexion. to me good looks are important. its not a vanity thing. havent u heard of first impression matters. beautiful people usually get things their way. why do they put pretty people as front sales staff? for 2 simple reasons. to attract customers. and people feel better talking to a good looking person. i'm not making it up, i read this in a magazine somewhere before.
why massages? well, national safari has overworked my body and the tension needs to be eased for a better well being.

when u look good, you feel good.
when you feel good, things go your way much better.

3) be more organised. note to self: get a diary planner.

dont you sometimes feel frustrated when your plans are all jumbled up. a planner will help me keep track of future activities. also i will use the planner to tabulate my spendings. i've been going way over the hills with my spending and i have no idea where all the money in my bank disintegrates to. which brings me to my next resolution.

4) save $$$ and reduce spending.

i simply cant imagine where all my pay and allowance go to. money in my bank account is like alcohol left in the open. it evaporates. really fast. although i still havent seen the point of saving yet, i really need to start young for my own future's good. i need to cut down on those restaurant lunches and dinners. the last time i stepped into a hawker centre would probably be in the late 1990's. my fren, werdna has also shown me the light of cutting expenses. stop patronising cafes.

i do have to admit. i have a soft spot for starbucks's frappucinos and the chai tea lattes from coffee bean. and this would easily set me back around six bucks for my usual grandes. and i dont drink one cup in a day. i start with at least a 2.

apparently, my penchant for fine dining and drinking is causing a hole in my pocket. anyway, all the stuff i eat and drink just turns to shit and piss in the long run. and also it makes me fat. so, simple plan to save and lose weight. stop spending so much on food.

see, kill 2 birdies with 1 stone.

well, i have another confession. everytime i pass by a magazine stand, i simply cant resist buying a magazine. be it those frilly gossip magazines or even a health magazine. i love magazines. i rarely read books and i only flip the newspaper to check for tv schedules. but i've tabulated and once i even spent up to $50 a month on magazines alone. tsk tsk.

i seriously should keep a book on what i spend on. at least at the end of the month, i know where all my money go to and i can keep cutting cost from there.

well enough about spending, lets move on to my next resolution.

5) be happy, have fun and be outgoing.

whatever it is in life. there's no use fretting over. life is short and if we dont try our best to enjoy it now. then when else. we must treasure our youth while we still have it. sometimes certain things in life just dont go away. but look at it this way, they are there as learning experiences and tomorrow everything will be better.

over the years, i have been a little reserve. 2007 will be a year where i break my barriers.

watch out world.

here i come.

*splat splat splat*



till next time guys, i wanna thank all of you for reading my blog. i know it may not be the most popular blog or the most interesting one. but the fact that u guys still read it makes me happy!

ps: to kathleen and melvin, happy birthday!

ps: to werdna, take care. i'll be counting down the days till they bring sexy back. =)

i shall leave you guys with a photo of mambo night at zouk.

hello public

if you've noticed i haven been updating on a regular basis even though i'm on my 12day leave. i've been extremely busy meeting up with friends and catching up on each other's lives. also my computer has caught some blasphemous disease of a virus and is really pissing me off with the reformating bits, especially with me being an IT dumb ass.

the probability of me being IT savvy is as similar as finding a Bangla that smells like roses. which in other words is never.

i havent actually had a proper day of simply lounging on my bed with a thermos flask of horlicks indulging in a vcd marathon. but thats ok. cause i had really good times during my leave.

the end of my leave also marks another significant event. no, its not the opening of vivocity. but something even more significant.

the end of the year 2006.

it might be cheesy to have one of those lookbacks into 2006 but then fuck it. if i wanna have one, i will have it.

2006 has been the year where i first dabbled into the big two-zero. no longer is it appropriate for me to buy the Teens and Teenage magazines cause it only means i'm in denial. i probably should start investing in anti aging creams.

2006 also had a new beginning for me in the national safari, a codename i gave for NS. before ns i never believed i could have survived a day in a jungle let alone Pasir Ris Park. but after going through six months as a soldier, i have accomplished feats that i never knew i was possible of. also the much more visible factors would be how ns has shed some of those ghastly weight i had and also it made me more vulgar. overall, its been okay.

2006 also ended my 3yr lovehate relationship with singapore poly. loving the poly lifestyle, hating the projects cramming. but trust me it was overall an enjoyable experience. never did i regret my decision of not going to a boring junior college. what i did regret however was not being participative enough in events. but thats life, u try to live it the best u can, and then u look back and see countless stuff that u could have done in a different way. but then if everything happened differently then u wouldnt have gone through wad u had. so technically everything happens for a reason, there's no use regretting.

2006 has also seen me on my ultra shopping sprees. from the donna karans to the calvin kleins and shopping for basics at zara like mere mortals at giordano. saving was simply not in my Dictionary. under the 'S' category of my dictionary was Spending, Shopping, Spendthrift, Spree but definitely not Saving. but damnit, i boosted the economy. =P

anyways, i will continue my lookback into 2006 another time cause i need to go prepare for another gathering. alright, till next time,

All I gotta say is
I just wanna have some fun
And I'll do it until I'm done
I'm telling you
I'm just a crazy kind of guy
I'll tell it to the world
I've just begun having my fun
Inside me there's something I found
I wanna shop around
I just begun
Don't wanna settle down
I just wanna have a good time
I just wanna be myself
And don't let anybody tell you it's any differently
I wanna enjoy the sunshine
And do the things that I need
To see what feels good to me
I'm just so crazy

hello public

I've been having some fucked up problems with my com lately. the internet connection keeps getting cut off after every 10-15mins of usage. Then I have to like restart my com again for me to be able to connect again.

There's also this pop up thingy that says something like, ''generic host process for win32 has encountered a problem and needs to close''.

I googled this and there's like other people too who faced similar problems. Some specified it to be the MS MACBLASTER worm, whatever that is. I called some of my IT frens. And they told me to download a worm removal thingy. And so I did.

After all the virus scans and worm scans, they found nothing corrupted in my com. So what the fuck is wrong with it. Its bloody pissing me off cause I cant be online for more than 15mins.

And I'm even bloody blogging on Microsoft words right now. How pathetic is that.

Is there anybody out there who've dealt with similar problems or knows how to solve this fuckshit? Pretty please gimme a buzz, leave a comment or smthing!!!


I've got buckets of fotos to upload and write up bout so you guys just sit back, relax and enjoy the pictorial diarrhea.

My 12 day block leave have just begun and already my planner is bursting at its seams.

Day 1

Met up with my neighbour, fara for a movie at the overhyped vivocity. We both wanted to catch Night At The Museum starring Ben Stiller cause he's like so funny and my favourite comedian, Robin Williams is acting in it too!!! So we decided to check out the new golden village at vivocity.

I have to say the GV there was a great experience. The mechanicals like the sound system and ambience were really good and I loved the fact that they had so much leg room space. But somehow the service was just cold. Not that it was bad, just that it felt like they were doing their job and that's that. Buying tickets from the AXS machines and popcorn from a vending machine would bring about a similar feel of service.

But then overalls, the movie was a funny one. Not like witty funny but you know like those type of funny that the whole family can enjoy. I give it a 3stars.

Then we ate at secret recipe where we had the set meal which consisted of a drink, main course and a cake for $14.90. quite cheap huh. The food and service was quite good. And there was one waitress that was kinda hot. Haha!!!

Remember, I did blog once about my revolting trip to secret recipe. But then, that was the marina square branch, the vivo's branch is definitely waaaaaaaaay better.

Afterwards, we went trigger friendly with my Olympus and then decided to call it a day.

Day 2

Was supposed to meet up with sharif for a last minute Christmas shopping but then he called in sick last minute. Oh wells, shit happens. Lets hope he gets better.

So I gave jiafang a call and she was free to go Christmas shopping with me. Yippie!!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

We met up in town and first destination was pastamania for lunch. It has been quite a while since I've visited my used-to-be favourite eaterie. Fangz needed to get a Christmas present and I had an urgent xmas present dued the next day.

Shopped from fareast to heerens and after a long and tiring but definitely fun search, I finally settled on something for werdna.

I did once say that I love shopping for presents but then that little Perfectionist in me always makes it hard to decide. I do love to shop but then I shop for stuff I deem 'perfect'. Its like I've been wanting to get a bag since forever but until I find the perfect one, I aint settling for second class.

Day 3

Luncheon with my friend werdna who brought 'sexy' back (private joke). Heard about this place that was highly recommended by a fellow blogger and decided to give Indulgz Bistro a try.

Located somewhere near bugis junction where I got lost initially trying to find but then I was still early cause werdna was a little late. But that's okay, he kinda got lost too. Hahaz!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

The ambience there was really great to bring someone you love for dinner. But then it was me and werdna there. How unromantic. Lol!!

Anyways, werdna's like leaving for some remote place in Australia to train to be a pilot. And he's gonna be gone for 6 long weeks!!! Omigosh!! I know how it feels to be away from family and friends to do training. I went to Brunei for 3 weeks and everyday I counted down till the day I took the flight home. But don't worry, we can still text each other.

Anyways, I passed him his christmas cum farewell present and I hope he likes it. I ordered char grilled rib eye steak which was really yummy while werdna had the carbonara. Samuel joined us later for cheese fondue and warm brownie with ice cream. The cheese fondue would have been quite nice if they didn't drown it in wine. It tasted like dipping my apples in alcohol. Bleah! At least the brownie was nice.

Overall, the food's not too bad, ambience was great and service was superb. The prices were quite reasonable too. Our entire meal only cost us 80bucks. Not bad huh.

Chatted for a while about our different ns lives. Samuel's in OCS, Werdna's gonna be a pilot and yours truly, the elite guards. Its nice catching up but then all good things has to come to an end. Samuel had other appointments so it was left with me and werdna for shopping!!! Weee!!!

So I hitched a ride on werdna's bmw. And trust me I enjoyed the ride. Hahaha!!! I don't really know about him though, having to bear my incessant out of tune yelling of whetever was on his cd player. From SOS by Rihanna to Sexy Back by Justin Timberlake, I belted everything out. LOL!!!

And he was like so stubborn and dint wanna join me in the SOS chorus. Hmmph!!


Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

well, walked around the city hall malls. I really like millennia walk. I never noticed millennia walk before but then now, it looks like a lovely chillout place. I was like craving for a chai tea latte so badly and werdna kept pulling me away cause he says that I shouldn't waste money at starbucks paying 5bucks for a drink. But I cant help it, I’m addicted.

So we sat around for a while later, as usual I camwhored and then we decided to say goodbye. So when he left, I went to starbucks and got myself a chai tea latte.

Day 4(today)

Met up with someone and that's all I'm gonna say. Even though I have a blog, not everything in my life is bloggable. Some things I rather keep it personal.

Well then,

That's about it. I'm spending Christmas with family and I have to book into camp at night for guard duty. I'm spending boxing day prowling bedok camp. Oh bleary!

Oh yah, a shout out to all my SP mates. I'm having a gathering at zouk for mambo night. That's Wednesday the 27th by the way. Do RSVP me for details and confirmations. It doesn't matter if we weren't from the same class, if you know me and I know you, then lets have a party. Its been quite a while since everyone had a get together, so lets end the year mambo-ing!

Alright, that's gonna it for me this time round, it has been a really looooooong entry and I hope you guys have been enjoying your time here.

Finally wishing everyone out there a merry Christmas!!!!!

hello public

how did you guys feel bout my very first podcast that i uploaded onto my blog in yesterday's update?

crappy eh? hahaha. actually i was like kinda testing out the microphone thingy on my creative zen and out of sheer boredom since i had too much time on hand i decided to crap something out for my first podcast.

trust me, it was totally unrehearsed.


why so free in camp, you may ask?

well, we just had a battalion mission thingy somewhere in the secluded regions of singapore and usually after such a massive exercise, the next day will just be catered for administrative matters.


isnt it exciting, christmas is just around the corner. fuck those shazz matazz about it being a season for giving. i dont even know why christmas is celebrated. whether it's santa's birthday or probably jesus's resurrection doesnt really make me moist. what does however, are the sales and discounts.

christmas is not about having a christmas tree. instead its about who has the brightest swarovski star on top of the tree. in other words, its about who can attract more customers to generate more sales for higher net profits to make up for lacklustre months.

from a consumers' point of view, i aint complaining.

decided to meet up with sharif for lunch on the saturday.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

went to this place in Wheelock Place called The Big O Restaurant. the food's not that bad considering you like it on the blah side. presentation of food and ambience of place was very pleasing. however dont expect to satisfy the raging hunger of bufallo here as the servings are minimal. the service was simple, nothing great and nothing bad, the typical minimal you'd expect in singapore's retail line.

caught up with sharif about his life. right now, he's just slacking at home since he has just attained every national servicemen's dream, ORD. since he's completed his 2 yr term, he's now like contemplating on studies or probably gather some working experience first.

as we passed by Lido i couldnt help but ogle and drool over those yummy gelatos. so Gelatissimo it is for dessert.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

shopped around somemore later as sharif need to get some presents and you know how i love shopping for presents. manage to get some lovely stuff that i know the receiver will simply j'adore.

although there were sales blowing off from right to left. there wasnt really anything much that caught my eye. at the end of the day, all i bought was a Calvin Klein v neck.

but then, to me shopping is not about how much stuff you buy but how much fun you had.

well, i had loads.

in case, some of my friends whom i havent met for quite a while due to our conflicting schedules have forgotten how exactly i look like, i leave you will a little something to remind.

p.s.: anybody wants to go mambo at zouk next wednesday? gimme a buzz.

oh yah, i would definitely love to know whether you guys would like a podcast number two scehduled anytime soon.

love me and leave me messages on my tagboard.

Sunday, December 03, 2006

hello public

its finally another weekend.

omg! i thought it'd never come. i guess now my national safari life is back to my tekong days. booking out every saturday mornings. damn!


cause i cant pass my IPPT aka napfa test(damn those pull ups!!!) and my Standard Obstacle Course thingy is not fast enough( damn those rope climbing!!!).

so its back to a 6 day work week instead of a 5 day one. instead of getting two nights to be on my comfy bed(not that i'm home on both nights most of the time), i only have one night of sleeping with air con. how like that?

but whatever. negativity is the last thing i shall surround myself with right now.

since i'm already dead beat due to the training this week, i decided that saturday's gonna be my relax day. so i took naps. went to the library to borrow some books and magazines. did a little grocerry shopping. ate a lot of ice cream. and uploaded songs and videos into my new mp4 player.

did i mention i finally got myself a Creative.


why creative and not ipod?

for 3 simple reasons.

1) creative has a radio function and ipod doesnt.

2) we should support local products that are actually good.

3) i hate being common. everyone's getting an ipod thus, i'm not getting one. remember darlings, a very important commandment in my 'Book of Bimbotic Quotes by a Camwhore(BBQC)', ''dont follow trends, start them''.


since its a 30Gig. i happily happily upload everything in every CD i have. then i uploaded 3 entire movies. and still got a lot of space left. i liiiiiiiiiiike!!!

its a Creative Zen Vision: M by the way.

so thats all i did on saturday.

on sunday(today), met up with my Tekong pal andrew but since he calls me ila on his blog i shall call him werdna. hehe!!!

i never do this but since he advertised my blog quite a few times on his blog, then i shall invite all of you to give his blog a visit at its rather new so do give him your support.

so anyway we met up in town. had lunch at Breeks where i had this kimchi seafood ramen which was not bad actually. that place deserves a revisit. the service was good and the prices were reasonable. i'd rate them 3.5stars. the only thing is they dont really have a lot of variety in the menu.

we did a little shopping afterwards where we both decided to do some Watch hunting. i saw this fabulous slick chic watch by Calvin Klein thats pure gorgeous. its like this super plain simple silvery watch. i've been wanting to get a simple watch and this one sure fits my bill.

but i'm kinda broke right now, so i gotta save and wait till the Christmas sales and discounts galore overflow like Niagara Falls in orchard road. thats what i love about christmas. its all a marketing ploy.

then he brought me to this place in far east plaza that serves a dessert which is fried Mars bar and 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream dribbled with chocolate fudge on top. its soooooooooo yummy!!! you guys simply have to experience it. its better than sex!

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

werdna had to leave shortly later cause he has to bring his cute little battery-operated-looking dog to the vet. so i hitched a ride on his new BMW till somerset and boy was it nice!!!

i wanna get a bmw too!!!


anyway, thanks for the ride sexy, i really enjoyed it!! *winks*


okay i gottago pack my bags to book in now. byeeeeeeeeeeeeee. take care and cmon leh, leave comments or say hi to me in my damn tagboard.
