said no woman ever

This is absolutely hilarious……

“I have enough jewelleries, I don’t need to go shopping.” Said NO woman ever.

revising my goals

Since I am now officially 26, but have not reached my 100k by 25 goal yet, I am hereby revising my goals to:

100k by 26
1000k by 27

Meanwhile I should start reading up on finance and investments……

thoughts create destiny

Since I just began my new year, here is something to keep in mind……

Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.


Yesterday I was 25 and today I begin my 27th revolution around the sun. :)



My birthday cake, a Mont Blanc cake from Patisserie Glace in Republic Plaza……

‘Z’ because it’s the 26th letter in the English alphabet…… :)

My brother asked if I’ll have ‘1’ on my cake next year as numbers come after letters…… well, probably not, but I’ll have a whole year to think about what to write……

And yes, it was rich and creamy and delicious too…… :D


Don’t part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.

wedding bells

Jaewai will be getting married next year, how exciting! Congratulations dear!!! :D

When I met her for lunch today, I volunteered to be her fashion consultant. But to be honest, I am not quite sure what its job scope entails, though! :P

Two more days!!! :)

all in a day’s work

Accompanied my editor Dr THC to interview the current Minister for Health this morning, at the ministry just up the road from our office. Colleague J tagged along as the photographer. The three of us and a corp comms officer all stood around in the meeting room awaiting his arrival. No idea why we didn’t sit……

Anyhow, the minister was friendly, and the hour-long interview went well, but nothing really groundbreaking was said. :P

frenzied friday

Joanne and I made a last minute decision to meet for dinner yesterday evening. We settled on Bugis+, thinking that it would not be crowded. How wrong we were! It was just as packed as the connecting Bugis Junction! There was also some sort of yo-yo event going on in Bugis+’s atrium, and lots of weird-looking youngsters were in attendance. :P

(I must say that CapitaMall Trust has done a great job of buying over the erstwhile Illuma, a ghost town, and turning it into a mall as successful as Bugis Junction, which CapitaMall also owns.)

All the eateries on the fourth floor had ridiculously long queues, while the ones on the first floor looked blah, so we decided to venture outside to find food. We went to Japanese vegetarian restaurant Herbivore in Fortune Centre, but there was a queue, and then to dimsum joint Victor’s Kitchen in Sunshine Plaza, but it was closed for the day.


So we went back to Bugis+, where the crowds had significantly dissipated, and settled on Ma Maison. Were super hungry so we both decided to get tonkatsu sets ($19.80 each) even before we were seated. The food tasted similar to other Ma Maison outlets, but the portions seemed smaller. And each tonkatsu set came with dessert, and what we got was matcha ice cream (above), which alas, tasted much more milk than green tea. But it was served in a darling little heart shaped bowl, which in turn stood in a shallow depression in a matching saucer.

prebirthday cake

In the run up to my impending birthday…… one last hurrah before I turn 26 next Tuesday!!!

Bought myself a prebirthday (or unbirthday, if you must!) cake today! It was the Coco Exotic cake from Four Leaves! And it was delicious!

Anyway, a Pythagorean triple consists of three positive integers a, b, and c, such that a2 + b2 = c2. And it so happens that 3, 4 and 5 make up the smallest Pythagorean triple. (3, 4 and 5 are also consecutive positive integers!) Check out other examples here!
