So the event has been over... well... 2 weeks or more ago.
But life with work and school had me spinning around in circles, and FINALLY, heh, a chance to put on the VERY LITTLE photos I had of the event.
All in all, it was my first SRA, and it was exciting...
Though there were certain parts that could be missed, but I kept myself entertained chatting with JH... over SMSes. HUR HUR HUR.
The 'I-look-fat-beside-JH' shot
Ahh.. that's better!

I've always been a great fan of musicals and theatre productions, you name it, I've watched it.
Phantom of the Opera, Miss Saigon, Cabaret, Chang and Eng, and a great deal of local productions like Beauty World.
So you can imagine my excitement when I was invited to one of the bigger musical productions this year, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
A musical catered for children, you'd think that a big kid like me would have enjoyed it. Well... it wasn't too bad, but turns out I'm NOT that much of a kid. So during one of those bored-shitless moments, I snuggled up to R and whispered to him... "you know... we can do a Singapore version of the musical... Chitty Chitty Kennah Banged." We sniggered quietly, and went back to our original slouching positions for the rest of the show. That was the high of the night.
On the contrary, during A*Mei's concert, the 3 hours concert was high, high into the sky. We sang along (thanks to the provided lyrics on the screen), hummed along, grooved along, and finally danced along to her 'Power Voice'. Its been years since I first saw her in the National Stadium, and she is equally powerful, if not better. It was plain torture to drag my tired ass to work the very next day. The concert has drained all my energy for the rest of the week, but it was all worth it. :D
After I've recuperated from the concert, I went for a night of magical adventures catching Stardust in the movies. It was fabulously-fantastic! Glad to say that Claire Danes has not lost her touch since she was Juliet in... well... Romeo and Juliet. As usual, the gang and I came out of the theatre thinking that we have magically transformed into one of the characters, as we did when we saw X-Men, Spiderman, Hairspray etc...etc...
And I think we've found the perfect role for our budding actor, R, for his debut movie. Robert De Niro's "Captain Gay" in the movie. HAHA.

After the long long looooooooooong wait, it's finally happening, tomorrow at Singapore Indoor Stadium!!!
*Dancing around in trance*
I'm going to wear my best outfit, put on my best behaviour, and prepare my voice for all the screaming and shouting tomorrow night.
She is indeed the icon of successful HK female singers of her era, along with the likes of Anita Mui and Sally Yeh.
Ok, I'm hoping that she will at least sing all my favourite songs mentioned above.
I cannot contain my excitment anymore.
SAAAAAAMMI! SAAAAAAAMMI! SAAAAAAAAAAAMMI!

No no, its not a children's book. Just 3 chapters from last week's event.
Starting with the Zoo:
I think this is the first time I went to the Zoo, and I didn't see any animals.
But its for a very very good cause, so I'm very pleased with the day's event.
Sadly, this is all I have to show for my day... courtesy of Eve. (If not, I wouldn't have any proof that I was there at all. Hah.)
My first homecooked dinner! I did the steak all by myself, and it was only slightly burnt! (SMUG)
Had help with the mash and vegs, but overall I am very very pleased with the results.
I shall take a moment to behave like Britney Spears "OH MY GOD!!! I CAN COOK!!! I CAN COOK!!!" (Original: "OMG! I'M A FAT PIG! I'M A FAT PIG!")
I have an extremely lazy dog. I'm afraid that I'm going to have to put her in the zoo if she doesn't get more exercise.
Bares no resemblance to the owner whatsoever. Not cool!

Friday night, dinner appointment at Tanjong Pagar with the gang.
Knowing that parking would be crazy, we went really early to snag us a parking lot.
But lucky, lucky us! We found a car moving off the moment we went into the carpark, but as the driver needed to drive off, we moved further in front to allow him space.
While we were busy being courteous, an extremely unreasonable middle-aged man on the OTHER side of the carpark made a dash for our lot.
Extremely pissed off, we went down to reason out this disgusting, self-righteous little oh-i'm-older-therefore-i'm-always-right man. Or should I say coward because he did NOT act like a man in any way.
He insisted that he arrived first therefore the lot is his, even though he was waiting on the other end of the carpark, and had the cheek to ask us 'are you sure any of you have a license?'
I backed out of the argument eventually because I was really really mad, and was on the verge of turning into a monster and bit his head off.
Maybe I should have...
He eventually drove off, wagging his finger at us, saying 'You youngsters should really learn to respect people.'
I think respect needs to be earned, not demanded. After such an ungraceful act, I think the lamp post beside the parking lot deserved more respect than him.
I SHOULD HAVE TURNED INTO TRANSFORMER AND SMASHED HIS CAR!!!
AUTOBOTS, TRANSFORM AND ROLL OUT!!!

Its freaking amazing and I lurvvvvvvvvvve it.
Though it gets tiring after awhile, trying to keep up with 'who bit me as a vampire/werewolf/what-nots'.
And trying to keep track of who has given me a beer/hug/spank.
I spend all my time trying to return all the 'favours'... Its seriously not doing me good with my early morning regime. :|
My favourite now: Pets - where you adopt a rabbit, fight monsters and gain level.
I attained level 11 within 2 days! *smug*
I actually have to tear myself away from my laptop to go to sleep.

2 words to summarise my past 2-3 weeks.
It had been hell of a crazy bitch.

Had the luxury catching 3 movies in 2 consecutive weeks. Hurhur.
I should really make it a point to watch at least 1 movie once a week.
Hilarious! This is a fantastic movie that you should not watch sitting down. I had to fight the urge of wanting to dance along with the fabulous music the entire time. Finally, when the show ended, my friend danced out of the theatre, and we almost had to tie him down to refrain him from doing so in the public... where there are real human beings.
Of course, the girls gushed over Zac Efron and the guys, Amanda Bynes.
Most memorable scene: Duet between Christopher Walken and John Travolta (You're Timeless to Me). The thought of 2 burly grown men subtly flirting sent goosebumps down my spine, BUT they are so cute that you'd forgive them anytime. Though I was really glad they didn't exchange anything else than a dance...
Never thought I'd ever be saying this, but damn the rat made me hungry! Heart-warming, and I'd really like to keep him as a pet... A companion AND a chef... WHERE TO FIND SUCH A GOOD DEAL?!?!
Most memorable scene: Any scene that involved food...
Jason Bourne had me sitting on the edge of my seat the whole time. Exciting lah!
Most memorable scene: The last scene when Jason 'rised from the dead'. It was kinda a 'WTH..' situation. Or a 'Bruce Willis - Die Hard series' situation, a.k.a the hero never dies... Less-than-perfect ending, but still good. At least I was impressed.

Ok ok, it's been 1 month since I've started in 93.3, and 2 weeks since the morning shift kicked in.
Am still taking some of time trying to get used to it, and the feedbacks had been mixed.
Thank you for your comments and feedbacks, I will take the constructive ones and work even harder on it.
Recently, there had been alot of questions on the use of my English name.
I actually don't know how it got started, but everybody called me Ivy, and I guess I just went along with it.
Some like Ivy, cos its easy to SMS/read. Some prefer 艾薇, cos it goes better in a chinese station.
I'm ok with both, cos essentially it is just a direct translation from each other.
I'm kinda torn between the 2.
And so, the battle of 艾薇 Vs Ivy begins.
Well well, that's not really Ivy nor 艾薇, but as long as I can get the point across... :)

Right now I feel that I'm waddling in a pool of mud.
And I might be drowning.
I need to find a way to survive, or at least float long enough so that I won't sink.
I know life is not a bed of roses, but at least give me one rose lah... I don't need a bed, one can already...

Yet another leaving us to pursue a great dream, unattainable to most of us who dared to dream it, and not have the guts (or the brains) to do it.
Don't know if I've ever said it to you, but I am extremely proud of you. And of course, unbelievably excited and happy for you.
The BIG apple will be tough, but I think you'd be tougher than that. You are the next survivor who won... A 4 YEARS SCHOLARSHIP!!! (Is that better than a million bucks?)
Amidst all the excitement, I'm sad you're leaving.
You'll be missed.

Morning shift has started...
And I had been waking up at 5am in the morning.
My god I had not seen the 5am skyline (not much to speak of from my window) since secondary school.
I would blur-rily wash up, bur-rily leave the house, and blur-rily drive to work.
Then I would stumble into the studio, blur-rily read the papers.
7am: Show starts!
Adrenaline rush til 10am, and I would reach my brain cells quota by then. :|
I would have to make alot of adjustments to my current lifestyle.
That means no more late night mahjong sessions!!! (GASP)
Now that's going to be tough one.
Or I can start organising sessions in the afternoon. :D
Anyone else free after lunch time?

After a long looong loooooooong wait, I finally managed to catch 881 this week! (Been on the night shift lah...)
The movie awed me with its simplicity.
No fluff, no fancy sets, no unrealistic storylilnes in a picture perfect world. Just characters you might meet in your everyday life, leading the life of a true blue Singaporean, playing out a story that could happen to you, to me, to anyone.
Dazzling costumes so stunning you wouldn't take your eyes off the screen for 1 second.
881 connected to me like no other films ever did, dialogues that you actually hear in your daily routine. Just the other day, R said 'There are actual lines that my mom uses on me!!!' E.g. (In Hokkien: 太阳都晒到屁股了，还不要起来？！’)
It had me in stitches first half of the show, and tears in the second.
Completed with artistic camera works and brilliant art directions.
What else can you ask for in a movie?
Of course, my favourite character in the show, the Techno Cock!
If you are slower than I am, GO CATCH IT NOW! Its worth every penny of your $9.50!

It took my 24th birthday to make me realise that I'm aging, that my metabolism rate ain't as active as before, that over-eating DOES matter now.
My youth is slipping thru my fingers, and all I can do is watch my fingers swell.
I am also suffering from a disease 'Sunday Bloat'. Stating the obvious, the symptoms are excessive bloating and swelling of body parts such as face, tummy, and on days that its just not your day, it'll probably be your whole body. (I blame this on my mother's wonderful cooking on every Sunday.)
I haven't had a good day for the past 2 months.
So now its goodbye to slim town and hello to flabby ville.

It was a whole lot of fun! Spices up your evening, bringing a brand new meaning to 'Nightlife'.
But getting used to the control panel is a whole new story. I wish I have 8 hands (like an octopus) and 2 heads (alien octopus) to handle it. I'd pray really really hard in hopes that god would bless me with the extra limbs. Fingers crossed.

And she definitely played the role tremendously well today for her new travel book launch at Suntec City.
Especially during book signing event, she was practically shining, like a star.
As new as I am, I was really excited for her too!
*200 rounds of applause!
In other news, my new shift has been confirmed, starting on 20.8.07. *Twirls in excitment.
But of course, it will not be announced til... well whenever it is announced.
And I am of course, overly excited over it. *Dances in trance.
And on top of that, I will be producing a brand new show, with mysterious guest stars. (No no, no telling until the time is right. ;D)
So stay tuned for more updates on that.

A recent conversation with a close friend had brought up the issue of my sensitivity towards people around me, or rather, the lack of it.
A: You have the sensitivity of a blunt axe!
Thinking that it was one of those routined-meaningless-insult-hurling activity, I took no mercy in lashing back (all in good fun) at A without a second thought, completely unaware that it was an obvious hint that I had unknowingly crossed the boundaries with my insensitivity.
Which proved A's point absolute accuracy.
I apologise. I will work really hard at attaining a decent sensitivity awareness level.
Which could be hard for a person who's rarely in touch with her emotions.
But I will work at it.

My holiday is over!!!
Time flew past, and all i did was blink my eye! Once! (Ok, maybe for 3 weeks.. but still!!!)
I had cultivated a habit of weeknight mahjong sessions and weekly Wed late night gatherings... outside Zouk... (Mambo lah...)
As excited as I am starting the new job, I'm still lamenting over how quickly... quietly... my holiday slipped away...
I'm still in shock. :|
On the brighter side, I found someone at work with similar interests as I do! The mambos and the mahjongs... *WOOHOO!!

The gift of sight is amazing.
The ability to wake up in the mornings, and able to see everything clearly immediately, not having to search around for your glasses, is indescribable.
As a patient who just went through a surgery on Tuesday should be resting at home.
Of course, being the restless 'itchy backside' person I am, I was unable to sit still at home.
After the training with WeiBin in the morning, I went out and had a whole day of fun which landed me in Zouk.
And it was gooooooooooooood! MAMBO ROCKS! (Even though I don't know any of the moves, I know all the songs!)
I just hope my dearest precious eyes would forgive my playfulness, and not act up...

I'm going to start taking shorter showers, no more baths, and swtiching off unused electrical appliances.
I'm going to buy a shopping bag. I'll name it Fatty and start bringing Fatty to the supermarkets (almost never) and 7-11s (almost everyday). Fatty and I will be buddies, wherever I go, it goes.
Also, a proper water bottle (named Bubbly), energy saving light bulbs (not worth naming), maybe some motion-sensored lighting, and lastly, maybe, if I win the lottery, a bicycle (Named Monster Truck!).
To Do List:
Its a small role to play, a tiny contribution to a greater plan. Afterall, we can't all migrate to stay with the Autobots if we really lose our planet earth, can we?
Its that simple.
I'm answering the call.

I am suffering from Thursday Blue.
Because I have an exam tomorrow. 'Exam Blues' would be more apt.
I hate studying. Of all the things I hate in my life, exams and studying rank right at the top.
I never understood the purpose of examinations. Force-feeding you information that you almost never use when you step into the cruel harsh working life. Isn't it a complete waste of time???
I wish I can do this the old-fashioned way. Burn my notes and drink them up. I'd like them in vodka, so it helps my sleeping.
But I don't drink, and I can't hold my liquor. At all. Don't think going for an exam with a hangover is encouraged as well.
So, good luck to me, and spare me all your luck if you can, cos I'm gonna need a whole load of that.

I am bursting with excitment, because FINALLY, after 17 torturous years of being short-sighted, having to fit a foreign object on my face daily in exchange for the gift of sight, I AM GOING TO HAVE MY LASIK SURGERY DONE!!!
Uh huh, that's right, no more glasses! I cannot find the words to begin telling u how excited I am. :D :D :D :D
I'm almost in trance.
Now, for the part I didn't know I had to go through before my doc's appointment and surgery, I am not able to wear my contact lenses. For at least the next 3 weeks!!! I grew up wearing spectacles, and I hate them. I'd flip when people called me 四眼田鸡, or telling me how blind I look with my glasses on. I am re-living the childhood nightmare now, and seriously, it decreased my self-confidence by half! And the fact that they give me a pounding headache doesn't help.
It's a price i have to pay for perfect eyesight for the rest of my life. And the first thing I'd do after I regain my eyesight, is throw my pairs of glasses, contact lenses and all the misc solutions from the highest level in my building.
Well, legally, of course. Down the rubbish chute. Cannot 高楼抛物 one, I know.

Now I need a little ego booster... Or a sleeping pill might be easier to get hold of...

And I'm not just talking about the weather....
Courtesy of my ex company, I was given a free ticket to Christina Aguilera's concert!
And man! Those are really good seats!
And Christina Aguilera is HOT HOT HOT! Sizzling HOT.
Although we had pretty good seatings, the star was still the size of an ant to me. (But hey its free, so lets not brood over it. I was very contented looking at a hot hot hot ant.)
So instead of taking dozens of pictures that will portray her as a little white dot that does not do her any justice, so we took pictures of ouselves.
Well, at least our faces can be seen...
But my friend is too lazy to email me the pictures, so once again, its to be continued........

I've always believed that life is like a train ride.
People from all walks of life board the train, and you never know when they'll alight.
Some care enough to stay, while others take you for a ride.
And sometimes you fall into a crappy mood and order others to get outta your cabin.
Then there are times when you meet the irritating ones who board and alight as and when they please that you just want to scream at them "YOU THINK TRAIN RIDE NO NEED TO PAY ONE AH??!!"
But its the unpredictability that makes the ride thrilling and exhilarating.
I just hope that I won't arrive at the final destination (Alone Town, or worse, Singles Bay) a lonely, desperate, saggy, old woman, and still alone.
Please God, wherever you are, please bless me with at least 3 other passengers so that I can play mahjong til the day I die.

首先，我的生日前夕，好友 Sheryl 把我‘骗’到了圣陶沙，来个脚底按摩！不过，这并非普通的脚底按摩，而是 Fish Reflexology！在按摩前，先将双脚浸在一旁，养了上百只小鱼的小池塘里。这些小鱼儿会一涌而上，把脚底板的死细胞全吃掉！感觉怪怪的，痒痒的，又非常的新鲜！超过瘾的！
按摩完毕，Sheryl 便急急忙忙的把我带回家。我也不以为然的跟着她，结果，一到家，早已埋伏好的一群好友马上跳出来，大声的嚷着“HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!"! 完全没有预料到，非常的惊喜！缤纷彩色的气球，自然而然的成为了当晚拍照的王牌道具！
最后，Evonne 和明辉也跟我们会面，送上细心制作的礼物！还有好多其他YES933 听众的祝福，真的，真的好开心。很巧的，我们都是六月宝宝，所以也送上一份小心意，希望你们会喜欢。：）

After weeks of whining and complaining, I am finally going to end my journey in my current company. Its only been 8 months since I joined, but it feels like I've been here forever. Maybe its because I spend so much time in the office everyday (average 10-12 hrs work day), maybe its because we work so hard. Strangely, a few weeks ago I couldn't wait to leave this place, now that I have 3 hours left, I don't really want to go anymore.
I would miss everything about everyone here. I've experienced kindness, friendship here and its been a wonderful journey.
Before I embark on a brand new adventure, I want to take a moment and jot down this memory, for keepsake.
