en classe

ce matin, nous presente nos famille!
Je vous présente ma famille. Dans ma famille il y a quatre personnes. il y a deux enfants, deux filles.
Voilà!
mes parents.
mon père: il est assez vieux, assez gros et beau!
ma mère: elle est petite, assez vieille et très belle!
ma soeur: elle est très petite et assez gros. Elle a un chien et s'appelle Owen. Owen très mince et il n'aime pas mange beaucoup.
moi: je suis petite, assez jeune et jolie. j'ai un chien aussi et s'appelle Frosty. Frosty très jolie et assez gros!

yet another day

gaud!

reading people's blogs can be oh so therapeutic! and it makes me wanna blog even more and to tell the whole wide world(www dot com? hahah...) how boring my life can be! what a joke.

let me tell u how seriously routined and mundane this student life can be...
the morning choreographed with a 'urh..' *stretch stretch*
thots start to flicker in the mind. *shit* another day in melbourne. wasnt this the same ceiling as yester morn?
more thots.

'do i want to wake up?'
'shucks. the Boyfriend is not online today. he has gone to somewhere remote for a stupid meeting'
'gosh..do i want to brush my teeth before going out today? what the heck. nobardy's gg to smell my breathe anyway...'

the legs touched the terra firma finally after like half an hour of reluctance. walk to the lit' girls room, the butt finds the bowl. pee. flush. wash hands. stare into the mirror, it stares back! brush teeth...hey thot i didnt want to brush my teeth this morning? see. what did i tell you. it's seriously routined till i forgot that i did want to do something extraordinary. guess people wouldnt faint after inhaling my breathe afterall. changed. hmm. peering out of the blinds. looks pretty sunny, alritey then, a red cardigan will do for this afternoon's walk. oh i forgot to mention that it's afternoon aredi. GOOD AFTERNOON! bonjour to you.

walk walk walk. turn; cross, reach cafeteria.
'one hot choc mocha, small, no sugar'
wait, tap tap tap....'oooooo...caffeine running thru my body '. my footsteps naturally found its way to Target. what did i tell you. sale items again. resist resist resist. walk around Target like 3times before heading to the cashier. succumbed yet once again. but hey sista! it's not a pair of shoe okay! omigaud...today is truly extraordinary, because the feet didnt trot back along swanston and back to earl street! it had a mind of its own....it went to melbourne central...why the hell did it went there? puzzled. it pranced into Bardot. omigaud. *hands cover eyes*

the ME is standing at the cashier once more.
2pm: back at apt with 3 bags of shopping. *tsk tsk*

cet après-midi

i woke up late. probably i knew that because there wasnt anyone who will be excited to see me online. why should i even bother to wake up at all. i have been having the weirdest dreams the past few nites. i think i might be gg insane. the nite before, i dreamt that my bedpost had turqoise looking fat slugs all squirming above my head as i sleep. and they had red heads. fat. really fat.

très gros, très laid.

last nite i dreamt of bt and my god. weird et bizzare. il ecrivez a list of nombres et told moi to go to his apt. i saw photos of myself since i was young till now all plastered on his wall. i stare in horror. and suddenly he came back. it was just him and me.

i woke up n i felt sick. i needed caffeine. and i got it finally.

feelings


devoid.

amour

my love for it is a deep and an enduring emotion; infused with feelings,
deep affection,
passion.

sometimes. it's the only solace i seek and comfort that i have when it is in my possession.

mine and mine only.

WMF tee-set

Tea is now the flavour of the month, thanks to its medicinal qualities which combine nicely with the trend to healthy living. However, im not going to give up coffee totally cos a cuppa tea can never keep me awake in the early mornings!...oh i just love earl grey tea and english breakfast...and not to mention fresh peppermint tea! oh the thot of it makes me yearn for good cuppa tea...but sad to say, i only have a box of lipton. =(

anyway, not to douse everyone's happy moods...
here's recommendation from a local newspaper website!

Trust German brand WMF to serve up Teutonic precision with this 'Tee-Set'. It comes with a warmer to keep the temperature of your tea just right for drinking. The metallic filter is slightly bent at the bottom with little holes, so that you can remove tea leaves as soon as the brew is ready. This prevents your tea from becoming too strong.

Looks really cool to have it on my working desk....maybe i will invest in one when i get back...then my mummy needn't have to watch our tea from becoming too strong.
and besides looking so tectonic and cool...im sure it's smaller than a coffee maker!

story telling time

me: once upon a time there was a monkey and a snake.

VelleyJie: they lived in a forested called "strawberry woods"


me: snake wears a bowtie across his neck for lunch


VelleyJie: monkey just loves to watch snake eat his what nots and snacks


me: exactly what kind of what nots and snacks does snake eats?


VelleyJie: snake likes to eat ... of all things: rabbit food!


me: one day, a hunny bunny came into "strawberry woods"


VelleyJie: hunny bunny came up to snake, and told him it was a representative of walmart trying to sell carrots


me: monkey went" Huh where are u from? mainland ah? i only heard of Saveway and BigW...u dun play play and act act ah!!!"


VelleyJie: hunny bunny went" well.... where u come from, u only have saveway and bigW, but i am from america!"


me: monkey was not amused and said "well go sell your carrots somewhere else! we dun eat carrots...we eat erm....CUCUMBERS!"


VelleyJie: so hunny bunny went hop a hop a hop back to america to leave monkey and snake enjoying their cucumbers


me: But But Snake was thinking of hunny bunny day and nite and he was getting sick of cucumbers


VelleyJie: so snake decided to ask monkey for advice as to what other wabbit food can he eat!
me: monkey didnt really have much brains so he said " why dun u eat strawberries since we are in the strawberry woods?"


VelleyJie: so monkey went swing swing and snake went slither slither and they went to all the corners of the forest in search of strawberries


me: and amidst all orh-ee-orh--ee--orh and sssh sssh...they met a tiger!!!


VelleyJie: tiger said " hey there little monkey and little snake, would u like to be friends with me? I will show u where to find the sweetest strawberries u can find!"


me: monkey shakes head furiously


VelleyJie: snake waves his tail profusely


me: monkey suddenly realises that snake was a rattle snake!!!


VelleyJie: snake said" u mean u din'nt know meh?"


me: monkey "glup.. eh i didnt know leh so can u poison the tiger anot ? if cannot hor im gg to swing to bananaLand"


VelleyJie: snake said " not to worry monkey, i will protect you with my incredible gravity defying and utterly outrageous ninja trained flying kick!.... but first let me grow some legs first"


me: Tiger was tapping his paws and growled:" eh u two...finished discussing aredi anot? im getting hungry...heehee"


VelleyJie: snake took off his bow tie, and with a poof it turned into a pair of legs which suddenly attached itseld onto snake's body


me: monkey went "omigaud! did u see that? can u do it again plureeze? huh? huh?pretty please??" clapping his hands
excitedly

what about me?

yes.


another good friend of mine is getting married. on the 23 sept. and yes im not there to attend. im missing out on so many important events in my friends' lives...sometimes i feel so left out. here alone. when i knew of her wedding news on msn i was very happy and excited...but on the other hand, i knew it was never meant for me.

i'll only be back in december! lucky i still be able to attend elle's wedding. gosh...everyone is getting married. not that im being pressured here...but sobsob...then there wun be anymore gals gathering aredi rite? cos they all have to accompany their hubbies...what about me? no more coffees...gosh so many things running thru my mind here...and then she was telling me about how her hubby actually proposed to her!

he left clue cards all over singapore (significant places to the both of them) and sent her on an 'amazing race'. and one of the pitstop was to get over to his friend's place to get an answer from the card. (meanwhile the hubby went over to her place to pack her stuff...you must be wondering what's gg to happen yah!)............


















stay tuned.

THE L A K E H O U S E


a very touching and romantic story that tells a love relationship between a doctor (sandra bullock) and a frustrated architect (keanu reeves). it's very much a waiting game through the old fashion way of snail mail and witty camera movements of linking the 2 stars through a span of 2 years. it reveils 2 lonely adults, passionate in their profession, stuck with lacklustre companions whom they know very well that they are not the ones for them and finally seek solace and comforts in their love letters to each other. both keanu and sandra have this chemistry going on between them on the set which was really good, my bet was becos they have acted together in Speed...so it was kinda like 'old times' for them.

personally i was very touched when keanu planted a tree for sandra. very very touched.
and what did sandra did in return for him...something equally just as touching. i wouldnt say.

it's not fantastic but it brings warmth to the hearts and almost brought tears to my eyes. it was very personal to me as well, because of their profession...and the lives that they choose to lead, living a relationship that is there but yet no there.

plus it had its funny moments that i can assure u of. try and catch the movie if you can.



if only frosty was just half as smart as jac....
