Got quite a few things Done...

Prepared to meet the T610 buyer in town with Bb..
while heading towards town, in the train realized
Bb didn't take down the buyer's contact number
& I forgot about the charger..sighz...anyway the buyer did not contact us..
guess he must have forgotten to tae down our contact as well..

Reached town meet Ann, Jason ,Christine and her Friend...

Went to Hello-shop @ Orchard to transfer ownership..
Find out the price difference of Corp Plan vs the Normal Price..

Went Starhub @ PS to get GIRO forms...

At LJS Chris and friend decided to sell us their tickets since they feel uncomfortable
without buying anything...they want to go shopping...
Ann & Jason went to borrow car from his Aunt..

Still got some time in between, so we walked back
to return Fong's hp since we've brought it along...
On the way there noticed Siu @ Mac'Cafe..
Sat down and chat , while waiting for Fong to knock off
Time to go catch the movie...
took a bus from CK Tang bus-stop to PS

Watched 8.30pm "Village" at GV Plaza..
Quite a Twist in the storyline...
"Conspiracy" is the word to use..
the bottomline...
"people like to escape from their mistakes..
FACE it manz...its the real world...lies after lies.."
Gosh~ I think I can be the script writter..haahaha,
coz' I sort of got guessed it correctly
while chewing on my candies ..
and hiding my face from all the "scary" scenes...
Well,I hate the feeling for being scared..
ask me to watch super sad and romantic movies,
I am "on" anytime... :)
and see my eyes all red and bluggy after sad movies...
ahhahaaha..

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

GOT MY BIRTHDATE ANALYZE..:

http://noracom.net/eng/fortune/color_cheki1.php


There is goes....
I am "Gold Lion"

.....who is rather serious and polite type of person.
I value personal relationships.
I suppress Irself and act to be a sociable person.
But I am a person who doesn't like to loose to anyone.
I dislike emotional atmosphere and vague attitude.
I want to make everything clear-cut.
I like to stay in Ir own little world.

If I get in a situation where there are lots of people
I can not express myself and act as a perfect person.

I am not very subjective sort of person,
unlike ordinary women,
but unfortunately I lack soft and gentle atmosphere.

I tend to be too bold.
I cannot help but stretch my hand to those who are in need.
I will help the weak.

I am also weak on compliments,
and will work enthusiastically after someone has given a compliment.

I will go about my duty steadily and loyally,
and not get in a rush to achieve the objective.

I have perseverance,
and will work effortlessly until I reach my objective.
Something that I have worked steadily for a long,long time,
will turn out to be an asset to the world.

I am careful and rational, therefore place value to steady life.
After getting married, I will be a devoted mother and a wife,
but I am a very Independent person,
prefer to keep my own little world.

well how true issit???
I think only 65% true...

Anyone Interested to go??

Lazy Day...

Spending the day Searching for Music on Kazaa
in my PJ and nerdy Specs and bed-hair for the entire day ,
browsing and searching for the Genre of the type of Music..
According to a website, its defined as follow:

Nu-jazz (sometimes electro-jazz) was coined in the late 1990s to refer to styles which combine jazz textures and sometimes jazz instrumentation with electronic music. Like the term electronica, nu jazz is a loosely defined umbrella musical style.

It ranges from the infusion of live instrumentation to house beats of jazz house exemplified by French St Germain and German Jazzanova; to more band-based improvised jazz with electronic elements such as that of the British Cinematic Orchestra, and the Norwegian future jazz style pioneered by Bugge Wesseltoft.

Nu-jazz typically ventures farther into the electronic territory than does its close cousin, acid jazz (or groove jazz), which is generally closer to earthier funk,
soul and rhythm and blues, although releases from noted groove jazz artists such as the Groove Collective blur the distinction between the styles.

Watch "SPRITED AWAY" on TV


Been a long time I since I last stick to the tv for more than 3 hours..
watched sprited away with sis on tv...
so creative...and heart-warming...
I just like these kind of "soobb.." movies..
Guess if I were to be born in my Granny's era,
I'll be in love with one of those soap operas..lol

Quote of the Day!

Very true in the working environment



Live A Life That Matters

Ready or not,someday it will all come to an end.
There will be no more sunrises, no minutes,hours or days.
All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten,
will pass to someone else.
Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.
It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.
Your grudges, resentments, frustrations,
and jealousies will finally disappear.
So, too, your hopes, ambitions, plans,
and to-do lists will expire.

The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.
It won't matter where you came from, or on what side of the tracks you lived, at the end.It won't matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant. So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured? What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built; not what you got, but what you gave.

What will matter is not your success, but your significance.
What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.
What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion,
courage or sacrifice that enriched,
empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example.

What will matter is not your competence, but your character.
What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many will feel a lasting loss when you're gone.

What will matter is not your memories,
but the memories that live in those who loved you.
What will matter is how long you will be remembered,
by whom and for what.

Living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident.
It's not a matter of circumstance but of choice.
Choose to live a life that matters.

Transcripting

Thought I was late for work, coz the traffic jam was horrendous.
according to the cabbie, all the vehicles slow down to wait for
9am to pass so taht they wont have to pay the ERP.
Damn~ better give the incharge a call to say that
I'll be late.. then realize that the meeting start at 9.30pm.
phew~
Reached the office at 9.20am.. sat at the receipt
talked to Irene for awhile and she decided to raise my pay by $30..
now I know why, coz the job aint easy...

imagine have to listen and type out the exact
dialogue of that 1hr 45 min conference...
8 people talking, and that indian guy speaks with
an accent that I can't catch what he is trying to say sometimes.

Then Jorina released that the cassette recorder dint work...
left the digi voice recorder which I guess they are not willing to let me bring home.. well, have to stay in the office to do the transcripting...
my ears almost turn deaf and I wanted so much to shout at the digi recorder..
what the **** is this..
Its all about IT security issues...
VPN, IPS, ASIC, gateway, firewall, Anti-spam..etc...
faints...

after work supposed to wait for Bb at cityhall,
went over to Suntec to see if there is any show that we can catch later..
legs pain, bruises and blisters...
walk for another hour ... muscleache...
sit at coffeebean, Siu called...don't think I have the strength already to move to town..its turning dark, tired...demoralised...
walked to the mrt station, went to Lavendar station... waited so long...
decided to talk the bus to Sg Casket ..
Bb called ...well, I'm already there..had a drink at the nearby coffeeshop..
took a cab home...
walked along the Pasam Malam along the road...
bath....Bb gave me a massage..but her face like somewhere else..
too tired I guess..I fall asleep without noticing.

Love declaration...

Spent a day in town

woke up feeling lazy...
dragging myself to get ready to model for Fen's exam..
she smsed me saying that she will be late .
so arr to mit at a later time..
trying to find the best matching outfit for her makeup theme.
in the end brought a few sets, so that she can pick and choose.
sighz..dint expect that she is so calm..
well, everyone in the room is so excited and ready ..
she got "black n white" for the 1st round..
45mins to do everything up...
15mins break...
12.30pm: next round..
creative makeup..she did the flora vinery on my face..
the title was sprung out at the very last min..
gosh ...phew~
then gotta have some photo-taking session...
took such a long time for everyone to position..

quickly washup my face and change..
there's buffet lunch cathered by the school..
have a quick bite..wanted to wait with Fen for her result
oh, btw, Jennifer is all along outside with a couple of other
classmates came specially to support those taking exams..

Anyway, dint wait for the results, quite dissapointed actually,
went to Taka to get a pair of sandals
(at the sales department,guessed thats where my bdae pressie from the "weird couples" came from).
then meet Bb and we went to take neocards (took 3 of them)
so inspired to take more coz we are so dressed up for it..
Thot of making it a whole day event to spend with Bb..
but some pple are just so inconsiderate..
not to mention names...we plan to watch "mean girls"
by the time we got some "response" from someone...
the ticket is already sold-out.. sianz 1/2!

Then went across the road to HMV checking out the genre to the type of
music that I liked...some how quite relaxing to me..
no lyrics coz I'm reall bad at them..lol..
Then i went to the 3rd storey of HMV "dance" section..
realized that they are actually 2 different types of music
(the 2 CDs that Charmaine burnt for me):

Found some at the shelf labelled:
-Acid Jazz / Down Tempo Compilations

Some of the CD Titles I take note of:
- BarGrooves
- The Ultimate Chillout Classics
- Songs fron The Chillout Lounge
- Nu Cool
- Cafe Del Mar

The background is playing this:
-Peter Rauhoufer 'live' @ ROXY
(thot is quite cool)

yupperz, guessed I'm into this type of scene..
If I ever go clubbing ...
Will see me ard in places where they spin these type of music.
Mox is 1 place, then ...where else??
Velvet Underground?
The Winebar @ Zouk?
Phuture?
