I don’t know when only I can stop bombarding you guys with photos. But I can’t help it if there have been so much happening around me that I don’t even know when to put the camera down!
And I have no solid thoughts to ponder upon as of late because I’ve been obsessed about Heroes, Desperate Housewives, A chinese TVB Drama, House and when I’m free, whatever OC episodes that I’ve not watched. So photographs to depict my daily life is the way to go.
Also, I’ve been tweaking with the template(and I’m not satisfied that I’ve only received a handful of compliments for my effort.;P). I’ve added a script on my sidebar from Twitter.com which enables me to send little bits of messages from my handphone which will appear in real time on that script in my sidebar. So in a way it’s Real Time Blogging!
I went back last weekend for my family’s open house. Now, now, before any of you emo-ed, it wasn’t that grand an affair so I didn’t call the whole world to come like I would if it was my birthday party. There were two sessions. One for relatives and another for my dad’s colleagues, a couple of family friends and a few friends of mine(I couldn’t call too many..so don’t emo k! and Daryl, if you’re reading this, don’t emo! You had plans with Justin that night! Same goes to you Jon!).
There was a canopy and all and food to last me through the day. I threw many a deadly glare at relatives who looked at me and smiled brightly, “Wah!! fatter already!!” as if it was the best thing to ever happen. Don’t they know that a statement like that can send a 20 year old girl who is 8kgs away from her ideal weight into the troughs of depression?
One uncle was just too much! I was happily scooping fried calamari(yumyum!) onto my plate and he said, “YAU SEK?? Fei ge la!! Tai! Tou lam tou tat jor chut lei!”(Still Eat??? Becoming fat already! See! Your tummy also pop out already!).. Niama……………………………. I just smiled at him with slitty eyes(think Claire Bennett when she smiles at Mr. Bennett). You know, the type of smile that never reaches the eyes. Grrrrrr.
Why do relatives think it is okay to tell you that you are putting on weight? And people who are not relatives, even though they are closer to you than some of your relatives will ever be, will not hurt you like that?
*pats tummy* 🙁 OH! I went for Yoga last night at the ClubHouse in my housing area. Never knew my legs could touch the ground behind my head while I’m lying on my back. And THAT was relaxing.
Angel went away to the doggie hotel for a couple of days because she would be disturbing all the guests by biting their toes. To those of you who wonder what kind of pet is it that I own with so much fur, two legs and a round body with stumps for hands, it’s a blurred photo of my dog scratching the glass.
Quite a big variety and the food wasn’t too bad too!
Now THIS was interesting. My cousin Yong Yong who came back from the US, who will be getting married next year, brought his Nintendo DS with him. When he was in Malacca, he thought my grandma how to play a brain puzzle game on his Nintendo DS. My grandmother was hooked and would be playing the game all the time. Here’s a photo of her teaching my aunty how to play the games. She gets very agitated and edgy when my aunty fumbles with the game. Damn funny. lol.
Soaking up the remains of chinese new year.
If anybody can guess where i took this photo and why I look like that, you’ve been reading me for far too long or you just know me so god damn well.
We bought an entire lamb! I’ve got a lamb sitting in my garden!! Albeit a dead one, but still! The length is there! To further illustrate my point, I put my wallet next to it to show you the size comparison.
Later on at night, Mel, Mun Teng, Abby, Joshua, Dennis, Vern Yang, Yijin, Kwo Kuang and Chun Guan dropped by for some makan and some obligatory gambling. Thank you Joshua for chonkering.

A brighter one. Oh, Mel brought Vodka along. And she was the first one to get drunk. Anyway, my house was overflowing with liquor that night because my dad’s colleagues just kept bringing bottles and bottles of wine as gifts. Even our modest little can-hold-only-8-bottles-of-wine wine rack wasn’t enough! Dad passed us a freshly open bottle of wine and we had some of that ON TOP of Mel’s Vodka.
Needless to say I fell into a depression and felt sick to my stomach(literally) later on at night. But a good night’s sleep cured it all. THANK GOD. I hate vomitting. Mel vomitted though. Abby was shooting caught-in-the-headlights type of questions to Joshua and he was chuckling at her knowing that she was a little off already. Everyone helped polish off a bottle of Baileys that my father donated to our table too. The sight and smell of Bailey’s, especially when I am feeling nauseous from overconsumption of alcohol, makes me want to puke my guts out.
It’s all very strange. My house has never been synonymous with liquor. But it’s not like we drank alot lah…. just that we’re poor drinkers.
And the funniest thing was that there were talks about how it’s getting late, curfews and ride homes etc. And I too felt stressed about those issues(like how I usually would when I’m staying out late), but stopped when I realised that I was actually in my own home and had no reason to ‘go home by a certain time’. LOL LOL. Really, a rare occasion.

Viktor Chansky(inside joke) had one too many vodkas to drink.

We surprised Mel with a cake! Though the plan rosaked abit but I think she was genuinely happy. 🙂
And sometimes, as much as my ovaries say that I should have children one day, there are evidences that children are little creatures that should be locked up in cages. Not us.
Which is exactly what those little *#&$#%)@ did. I didn’t let them come into the backyard because we were celebrating Mel’s birthday there and then they pressed the lock from inside the dining area and locked us out in the backyard!!
I was rapping on the window and no one could hear me because my dad’s colleagues were busy gambling on the floor in the living room. I had to call my dad on his handphone and told him that some kids locked me and my friends out of the house.
A random shot of Mun Teng discussing poker with Joshua.
Vern Yang and Mun Teng…I have no idea what happened.
Mervyn(and Derek) joined us for blackjack. These boys, they’ll do anything for money.
Kwo Kuang and Chun Guan came later. Haihh. But at least they came!
See, Abby was quite red already.
l-r: Abby, Mel and Yijin pan cute.
Don’t know who took this shot. But do I look red? I LOOK RED!!
The nail art bug has returned to me. Classmates who visit me or sleepover will get their nails done by me!
Here’re Brenda’s red talons with my designs(copied from a nail art magazine).
The heart attacks we give the dental technicians…”WAH KUKU YOU!!”
These are Nien’s fingers. I’m quite proud of these. Especially the criss crossed tips.
Baby blue is such a pretty colour.
Quite proud of it lah, even though it is quite simple.
There’re alot of practical classes in this module and I’ve got loads of photos. But not tonight, I’m just too tired.
Up next, on Desperate Dentists:
God, I should really cut down on my tv series. 🙁

Unlike you, I’ve had nasty experiences with non-family members blatantly telling me that I’ve put on weight as well. It’s an asian thing. Seriously.. It’s a conversation filler for them. It’s because of the lack of conversational skills that cause them to pick on the worst topics of conversation ever! OKay, or maybe they’re just trying to kill the conversation and make you scuttle away so they don’t have to talk to you anymore.
jo: ahahha you think it’s cool?:D yay! hahaha..
oh my god i feel for you. so stupid la some people. don’t they know it’s a big nono to say? What GIVES them the right? cibaiiIiis.
