Is there a time to grow up? Do we consciously need to remind ourselves that we are supposed to become more mature or does it happen naturally, like a seamless transition?
I am not ready yet! I know I am not freaking young anymore, many of my friends already felt like age is catching up on them, but definitely not me! Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that I am still childish, I know for the fact that I am already an adult and now have my responsibilities and roles to fill, I just feel that there’s nothing wrong with feeling young and fun, don’t you agree? I mean, if everyone start thinking they are old, the world would become a dull and boring place…
Had a great night out with my ladies… after 15 years of friendship!!! Well I tell you the party was awesome and we are still pretty much young and happening!
Sometimes we just need to feel the wind in our hair and have fun!
Just as I was about to back up my Mac book pro, I came across some old photos from my hard disk! Thought I might as well share it with you… These are the Pre-wedding shots taken some time back, those shot in the gowns and suits are taken by Leslie, as his portfolio and taken way back before Mr Tay even proposed! But I really liked the photos… the emotions are very nicely captured!
And these are our actual pre-wedding shots, we didn’t want to take the usual in the gown kinda photoshoot so we opted for something fun and candid! My friend, Monica Eng, a veteran in the industry took these photos and I loved them lots!!! I did some colour enhancement on some photos just for fun though… Looking back at the photos makes me happy!
Don’t you think they are just so cute? Hugest grin on my face right now!
I am really blessed to have a sissy like you!!! Awwwwww…… Yes! I said it 🙂 We do complete each other, though 7 years apart, we are closer than ever! I love sharing my secrets with you and I like it that we can watch dramas we love together, sometimes even though we are just sitting around doing our own stuff, it’s good to know that you are there, and of course we make the best travelling companions (looking forward to conquering the whole world with you…when are we buying our world map?!)! Am I getting mushy??? Alright I shall stop gushing…but I do mean it…touched???
Sisterly ❤ by my sissy….xxx
I’ve been hitting the piano for weeks whenever I pop by my parent’s house for meals in hope of playing Adele’s “Someone like you” or “Turning Tables”, I tried to find free piano scores but those websites charge for it and since I haven’t bought scores online before, I decided not to (I’m glad I did not) and try decipher the notes by listening to the songs. Well, I could only manage to get the prelude right and I blame it on myself for giving up piano and not practicing hard enough when I was still having piano lessons. My cousin always reminded me that I used to throw tantrums and roll on the floor at my piano teacher’s house…how funny and embarrassing, okay, I think I was only 5 or 6 years old then.
Anyway, so I was elated today when I found a youtube tutorial on the song!!!! Woots!!! And it was a damn good version, somewhat original, and I decided to stream it on the Ipad (finally I found a good purpose of the ipad other than using the safari) while I try playing it. Yay! It’s such a fulfilling day and I hope I’ll be able to perfect the song really soon!!! Can’t wait … keeping my fingers crossed!
For those who wants to learn to play it too… here’s the tutorial! I think it’s pretty idiot proof, so good luck folks!
I am so happy to be back in Sunny Singapore, especially after a week of winter cold in smoggy Shanghai! I really really missed Singapore, I even had some “twilight moments”, out of body experiences when my body is in Shanghai, but my soul and heart is in Singapore… Anyway, this was my first family trip the Tays, and everything went pretty smoothly and not forgetting the generous hospitality from Shiwen and her family, we were all very well-fed!
Well, this was my fourth time to Shanghai, I was impressed that they are kinda cleaned up, compared to my previous trips, toilets are clean and their restaurants do not have that weird smell now seriously! Down side was that free WIFI is almost impossible to tap in Shanghai, we all had to weave into some shopping malls, Apple store and we even stood in the cold @ Cheng Huang Temple street just to watsapp and worst, I did not get to shop!!! WTF right?! I under packed so I could buy some new clothes, but at the end, I had to re-wear some of my clothes *gross*. This is the first time I am left with a wad of cash after a week, the rest of the time, I come home completely penniless…
Anyway, as a consolation to myself, at least I manage to capture loads of pictures of everyone and myself *roll eyes* in my different outfits/styling, entirely by my Oly Ep 3 .
**Disclaimer: This is going to be a self-absorbed post = overload of pictures of me!

I don’t know what has gotten over me to make “Waking up early” one of my resolutions for 2012. Only a few days ago, it seemed like a pretty good and healthy idea, but it really seem pretty dumb now. I did get out of bed approximately 2hours earlier to be precise, however instead of feeling energetic and all, I am so physically and mentally drained not to mention zombiefied when the clock strikes 11pm (not even 12 midnight, I used to wake up at 11am and I turn in at 3am, staying up was easy peasy…. ) it’s so hard to peel my eyelids open to look like I’m listening to my girlies’ conversation and I was literally sleep walking home from the train station just now! I don’t even know if I am typing this post with a sensible mind since my brain is threatening to shut down like how my blackberry did moments ago. With this I shall end here and go to bed…goodnight folks!
