I'm Back!! I'm Back and I'm Back!! Yes, and I am sure you didn't miss me much.
Well, what I do know is that I didn't miss the internet much. In the 13 days I was away from the office, I was online for only a total of 3 times!!! Which is like only once every four days, don't I do not disagree that the exhobitant internet pricing in Novotel Peace Beijing did prevent me from going online more often than I had liked (RMB2 per minute = RMB120 per hour = SGD24 per hour).
Oh, by the way, Happy New Year!!! Spent the last hours of 2007 and the first hours of 2008 timing ourselves so that we will end up on Benjamin Shears Bridge at the stroke of midnight! And the timing was perfect, cuz we were right at the top of the bridge in the thick of the fireworks. I LOVE FIREWORKS. Seriously, I do love them. I love watching them and being in the midst of the noise. It's fantastic. But being hurried along by the police as we can't stop on the bridge was not so nice... but I can't complain. The timing was just perfect. :)
Oh, forgot the photos (again). Nvm, will upload them next time!

Was sick over the weekend, with a bout of flu, runny nose, sore throat and (now) cough. Boyfriend was not spared either, with a really high fever, sore throat and inflamed tonsils.
So what does one sick couple do when they are sick???
They slept. and slept and slept. through Friday night, forgoing dinner, Saturday, and Sunday afternoon.
I was rested like I never rest before. On hindsight, it was a good idea as I had not rested well over the past two very 'happening' weekends. Guess my body is telling me that it is time to take a breather.
On a sidenote, despite my being ill, I went out Christmas shopping with my favourite girlies, Mars and Shan with a running nose that would not stop running. Couldn't turn them down, since I hardly see them together. Ended up with only one Christmas gift though, for the fickle-minded me never seemed to be able to decide what to get.

Out of sheer procrastination and a lil bit of cramps, I have decided to repost my wishlist again, a week after posting it:
The Tangible Items.
(1) Shopping vouchers from Isetan/Tangs - love the things there.
(2) Shopping vouchers from Wisma/Vivocity - ditto above.
(3) Benefit's California Kissing!
(4) The entire Alice series
(5) Marc Jacob's Daisy EDT
(6) Summer by Kenzo EDT
(7) Something from Coach - The Carly or the Signature Stripe in Baby Blue
(8) No more Passport Holders
(9) The A380 edition of the SQ playing cards.
(10) The LV Neverfull MM or PM. Generally I think LV bags are oldish, and ugly. This is actually the only one I like beacuse of the design and functionality. And it doesn't look as oldish as some of the others.
(11) A nice pencil skirt, preferably one that sits at the waist, and is nice and tight and show off the curves. Hahahah, I saw some people wearing it and I really like it. Something like this.
(12) More ballet flats. Those in target.com, under the xhiliation brand are really nice.
The Intangible Items.
(1) The perfect job - the one that I won't mind doing for the rest of my life, till retirement, that is. Actually there is no perfect job, but then I mean a job that I am happier in and doesn't wanna think of leaving.
(2) A happier me. Probably if (1) is schieved, this will also be easier.
(3) Happier friends. (2) will also be more easily achieved if this is achieved. Happiness is infectious, esp if it occurs to the most important people around you.
(4) Courage, to make the change and take the plunge when situation requires.
(5) A positive attitude, even when things don't go your way.
(6) Appreciation for the people around me.
