In ♥ with Y-O-U.

I’m gettin’ attached real SOON!!

To a….

Ukulele!

Yet to really know how my darlingggg would look like.

But im sure he’s gonna be decent-looking! *beams*

***************************************************************

Now im really in a dilemma as to which to get.

I’ve never played a stringed instrument before.

For a start, heard that soprano ukuleles (the smallest size) are best recommended for beginners.

Budget me is thinking of gettin a cheap one.

But yet, i dont wanna end up gettin one that gives me lousy sound quality.

By then, i swear i would be so not motivated to learn the instrument anymore.

Went to check out Davis Guitars at Peninsula Plaza today, thanks to David & Sara’s recommendation.

They really sell cheap ukuleles!

As cheap as $35!

And i must say, one of the ukuleles, really caught my eye.

A pretty, unique-looking red plug-in ukulele, retailing at $65, that comes with a bag!

The only downside to it is, i dont know any other information abt it!

No idea bout the kind of tonewood, the strings, the kind.

The shop assistant told me that “Its hard to tell.”

When i asked him what tonewood is the ukulele made of. >.<

I really dont wanna waste my $ like that.

Will be checking out the Ukulele Movement shop at Farrer Park tml.

(http://www.ukulelemovement.com/)

Thanks Cherylene for acc-ing me there!

I hope the trip wont be a letdown tml. 🙂

On another note, thanks Bro for offering to subsidize 50% of the cost of my ukulele!

Though i may not express it, but im really thankful and touched by the gesture! 🙂

Recess week is coming to an end.

***************************************************************************************

I spent my whole weekend with the lovelies.

Frankly speaking, I really couldnt imagine wats life without them. >.<

Esp Ms J! Who keeps all my deepest secrets. Haha.

[FRIDAY]

Aft a loooong HTHT with pris aft 2102 lect.

I cabbed down to Cathay to meetup with the girls.

G-force 3D was CUTE!

And it made it even more fun with the company of ppl like ms mong and olivia.

Who had never caught a 3D movie before. Haha.

They literally slumped back to their seats when the insects start spilling out.

As if its falling onto us. With the 3D effect. Animated. Funny.

I swear im gonna go watch Alvin & Chipmunks 2 in 3D when its out!

Chit chatted at LJS. Had our usual camwhoring.

collage1 collage2

Went off to meet KO at cine.
Movie. Dinner. Music.

Everything was great.

Time Traveller’s Wife was a really nice movie.

Its like a bitter sweet lovestory.

One of the particular quotes in the movie really gripped my heart.

It goes sth like this.

“Why did you invite everyone here?”
“Cos I don’t want you to face the pain all alone.” >.<
Somehow, that sentence really seized my heart at the very moment.
 
Dinner was simple.
But the double choc frappe was good!
Haha, yes yes, anything thats chocolatey would please me.
Everyone knows that. 😛
Live acoustic sets at Esplanade waterfront was goooood too.
Thou it was pretty wasted that they repeated both sets with the same songs. 😦
But its okay!
Cos i saw a UKULELE!!
For the first time in my life. Right in my face. 😀
Glad that i stayed behind. Heh.
******************************************************************************
Thanks to David, we got to know Sara Wee & Alvin.
Check out one of Sara’s vid.
I love this song. One of the must-sing songs when i go karaoke.
Thou irene always like to make fun of the lyrics.
Torn.
Got to know other nice songs too.
Like The Show by Lenka.
This song is like stuck in my mind since ytd!
All in all, it was a great day.
Kudos to the great company!

Not enough time?

I really really can’t stand people who make empty promises.

What’s the point of saying something, when you actually don’t mean it?

Being busy is definitely no excuse.

Cos one can always try to make time for it.

You could always fix the appointment two weeks in advance, and keep that day free, isnt it?

(Of course, minus the unforseen circumstances that surfaced last min. But hey, at least u tried rite?)

Sometimes, its not a matter of the time, but rather whether you really mean it.

And i hate it when friends dont initiate anything, and wait for you to ask them out.

And when you do, they give replies like “See how. Duno if i can make it.”

Its not like as if im that free, and i had to wait for you till the very last minute.

When you suddenly realise that you have nothing on that day (cos nobody asks you out), you feel bored, and thats why you ask me out.

I’m NOT your backup plan.

Of course, sometimes, i do know that there are friends who dont mean it. Thats really okay. 🙂

But yet, when some people jus do that ALL the time, you just get so sick and tired of that.

*******************************************************************************

Enough of my rantings.

Realise that i didnt upload any of the flyer photos taken last mth! >.<

I really love the set of photos taken there.

Cant possibly upload everything here. Shall just share a few of my favourites! 🙂

Swensen Date ♥

Sometimes i really dont understand what some people are thinking.

They tell you one thing, and yet they do another.

I think my defensive wall is getting “sturdier” as each day goes.

Oh well, on a brighter note.

I went for a Swensen date with J last sat!

Shall skip the nitty gritty details.

Basically, it was just an afternoon of HTHT and camwhoring.

We didnt eat alot though.

Its supposed to be an ice cream buffet.

BUT we only took like 2 scoops? Lol.

The waffles are really nice though.

Reminded me of A&W waffles.

I totally wouldnt mind going there just for the waffles and fondue.

Cost each of us $11. Not too bad isn’t it?

1-for-1 offers end on 30 sept though!

Jus leave me a message if you want the coupon. 🙂

Sweet 16.

Wow. It has been a month since i last pent something here.

The past one month was mostly full of emo-shit.

Many many stuff happened.

Everything is great now though!

(That is if i exclude all the school nonsense thats waiting for me to deal with :X)

I chanced upon this youtube vid earlier.

And i loveeeeeee it to the max.

Come on, go on and click the Play button.

You know you want to. 😀

Let it run in the background while you continue to read the rest of my entry ya?

Its a beautiful mix of Love Story and Viva La Vida.

Casting the unhappiness one month back aside, i wish everyday could be like last sunday!

Some of the NATurals had a gathering  tog. I forgot who was the one who organised it.

But well, it doesn’t matter, isn’t it? What matters is, we all had F-U-N!

Joyce aka Ms J, Jan and I met earlier to get Olivia’s present and cake.

The girls had their wanton mee  at far east while i had chocolate milk tea for lunch.

No choice. I gotta save my stomach for the night’s steamboat. Im glad i did.

Gift-shopping. Mega psycho-ing. Cam-whoring.

collage1

Ms mong aka Meiyannnn came and join us at vivo rooftop.

Where we plan for our mega birthday surprise. HAHA.

Actually it was nothing much.

Its just to pass her the receipt from AwfullyChoc so that she could collect the cake later.

Show her the bday surprise venue. Camwhore. And to waste her time by making her walk for a damm long distance just to meet us. 😛

collage2

After meiyan went to meet her other grp of frens, we left the rooftop shortly.

Suggested going to the 2 places which are a must-go for me, everytime when im at vivo.

Pet Safari and Daiso!

I saw a really cuteeeee toy poodle. LOVE IT.

Went Daiso to get the board which I need it for x zheng mei aka POK aka pris’s belated present.

Sad to say, school work has been taking up so much of my time that i’ve yet to get started on the present. -.-

Met birthday girl Olivia and Joanne.

In for more camwhoring session while waiting for the other girls.

Joyce and I saw this “Moses Lim” standing poster. Decided to be cheeky and posed alongside with him. Heh.

6440_123871377967_594902967_2397005_964388_n

Just one of the many cheap thrills Ms J and i love to do! 😛

collage3

Jan loves snapping candid moments of us. Lol.

Look how happy Joyce is, lying down on Joanne’s lap.

YES, UNGLAM. BUT SHE LOVES IT. 😛

Finally, at 6.30pm, everybody came.

Time for steamboat! We had 2 tables where me, Joyce, Jan and Joanne shared one.

Haha, throughout the course of the dinner, me and Joyce were super LOVING la.

And we ordered a Lover’s drink to share. Heh. Glad we did.

It was value for money. Jan and Joanne did the same, after seeing how huge our cup is. Haha.

collage4

Some lovey-dovey photos of me and Joyce. LOL.

Haha, btw, i think our table was freaking noisy, esp so aft Dale joined us at bout 7+ or 8pm. 😛

But i just love gatherings like these. Somehow, time spent with all these girlfriends past by really quickly!

Well, i think Dale can officially join us and be our new “jie mei” aka sister. 🙂

collage5

Steamboat was pretty enjoyable!

Funny and stupid stuff that we do – yet that could easily tickle all of us.

Joanne and Jan love to blow the “smoke” in our direction.

Choking both Joyce and I.

Ohhh, and I discovered some of our food preferences!

Joanne the FISHBALL girl. (Ate like 30fishballs?)

Jan the SOTONG girl. (No other meanings intended. Hmmm, i didnt mean you are blur. Or maybe you are. :P)

Joyce and me, the HOTDOG bestfriends. (Thats why you see us posing with hotdog sticks)

Olivia the MANTOU girl. (Not value for $$$ leh. Haha)

Shuyi and Yunjia, the TOMYUM friends? (Not too sure about them, cos we are sitting in diff tables)

Dale, the RUBBISHBIN. (He said this himself. Not me hor.)

Anyway, we proceeded to Vivo rooftop to have our birthday celebration!

I think we made Olivia pretty sad. Cos she dedicated her actual birthday to us.

And yet for most of the time, we didnt make her feel like a birthday girl.

No birthday gifts. No cake.

But that was the plan!

Meiyan (who isn’t supposed to be joining us for the day) was supposed to appear with a birthday cake behind her.

And surprised her at the rooftop when she thought that we were just going there to chill out and camwhore.

But oh well, the surprise kinda failed anyway.

EPIC FAIL.

Haha, cos Olivia spotted Meiyan right at the start!

When Meiyan was still desperately trying to light up the candles despite the chilly winds.

Anw, we still managed to carry out our bday celeb la.

Followed by photo-taking and all.

Happy Sweet 16 Olivia!! :):):)collage6

Few of us went to check out movie timeslots for Final Destination.

But too bad, seats were really bad.

So we joined the rest for camwhoring and a chill out session.

collage7

collage8Haha, love these photos.

Jan and Olivia kept snapping our camwhoring attempts, like some papprazzi.

As you can see, they were mostly candid shots. Lol.

Tortured our birthday girl for a game of “Psychiatrist”

Had a really short truth or dare session.

I was the first to “kena”. But thanks to Olivia, i was spared!!!

I chose Truth. And the birthday girl asked, “So do you like me?”

HAHA. Damm cute. I think she must be thinking that we are still playing the earlier game.

How could i not like you man? 😛

The day culminated in the last round of Truth or Dare where Dale had to answer a qns on Truth.

Ms Mong asked “Tell us what was the mushiest thing you ever said to a girl.”

LOL. Damm funny. Okay, i foresee more HTHT sessions coming.

Reached home around 12am.

Love days like these. More to come please.

Can’t wait for Saturday! Swensen date with Ms J. 🙂

Sighhh. I think i exceeded the time im supposed to spend for blogging.

Time for me to go back to writing my news story. Ciao.
