Stop Piracy

Gosh, this is what happens when you BUY cds!
You get to hear heaps of other songs you never intended to, and then you end up finding out where Delirious? got their inspiration from!
Isn't the first part of this song all "Take Off My Shoes"?!

I am back from Taiwan!

Now I have to turn my body clock back, cos I spent 99% of my days in Taipei sleeping at 7am. :P
It's madness being nocturnal.

And I've got to pack!!
How ah ... I need a bigger wardrobe, preferably one the size of my room.
I fell asleep last night dreaming of the way I want my room to look, if I had the money to splash on it. Hee hee.

I vaguely remember that I am supposed to put on some pictures. Haha.
I'll try to get around to it ... after I unpack and finish reading my mags and meeting up with my frens. :P

I do realise I should be posting more pics on my blog, but it's just too bad my camera doesn't seem to wanna stick on my list of "Things to Bring When I Leave My Hotel Room".

Although, I'll try and remember to take some pics later ... because I'm meeting up with Elaine, Sherlyn, Yunjie and Sonia!!!
Can you believe it, I've been in Taipei since June 26 and I haven't met up with Sonia yet?! :P
I forgot to turn on that part of my brain that says, "Sonia lives in Taiwan".

Hm ... you know, if I go downstairs now, I'd be able to have a taste of the breakfast they're serving in this hotel.
Amy and I have been talking about making it for breakfast ever since we arrived, but we've been here for more than 2 weeks (even changed hotels in the midst of it) and it hasn't happened yet, because between 7 to 10am, we're invariably still sleeping. :P
Yes, I am fully nocturnal now, which is BAD.
And "nocturnal" always reminds me of Professor Lupin.

Can someone tell me how to switch my body back to the living-by-day-and-sleeping-by-night mode?
And while you're at it, if you can tell me how to NOT put on weight while I guzzle down the Taiwanese oh-so-many specialties ... ?

oh happy day!

I went to the biggest bookstore in Taipei today, Eslite!
It looks like Kinokuniya and is open till 2am~!
I was so happy to finally be in the company of books again!

Amy was quick ... she swooped around, quickly picked up 5-6 mags and paid for them.
I tot to myself, "Gosh, I would lurf to spend the whole day here ..."
Most of the books were in Chinese, but no matter ... I found stuff to buy anyway:

1. The curious incident of the dog in the night-time (Mark Haddon)
2. The shadow of the wind (Carlos Ruiz Zafon)
3. A Chinese dictionary of simplified and traditional Chinese

Hope they make good reads ...

I even came across a mag with Cho Seung Woo on the cover, but it's all in Korean!

Never mind ... I know where to destress in future. Hee hee. :P

the sun is up!

I have insomnia.
It is 6am and I really should be sleeping, but I am so awake that my brain has no choice but to think of the most ridiculous thoughts like,

"Ooh....wouldn't it be exciting if a typhoon really comes? What if the room window is blown to pieces? Maybe we should hide in between the 2 beds so if a sofa flies in, we will not be slammed against the wall..."


"Why does the light on Chashew Bao (my iBook) blink when I put it to sleep? Gosh, look at the patterns in the dark it's making..."


"Hey, it's snow season in Oz now! I wanna go skiing....Sigh...all those happy ppl in Melb who get to go....Ooh, I miss Koko Black...Hm...I wonder if I can make my own hot chocolate with really good dark chocolate?"

Yah, random thoughts like these...which go on for about a few hours, as I try to "drift" off to sleep....

And it doesn't help that Lord of the Rings was playing on TV earlier, which totally got me hyperventilating about several things all at once...the snow...the brilliance of Peter Jackson...the loyalty of Sam....the armor bearer heart of Legolas (yes, and how cool he is) spiritual the whole trilogy was. Yah, sometimes I find it hard to catch some things when they are preached to me straight, but gimme a story or movie, and I'll dissect it and relate it and analyse it and feel it for you. Watch LOTR with me and you will stand in awe at what I can get out of it. Heh heh.

Oh yes! CHT is out and it looks gooooooood. :) Heard some good comments on it too, which is encouraging!

Emerge Taiwan coming up!! So excited that I'm actually going to attend it. :)

Okei I think I'm gonna go back to bed and try to sleep again...but lastly, here's another berfdae greeting for you Laine! I pray that God will drench you in all kinds of blessings, and that you will see the desires of your heart fulfilled, soon. :) Can't wait to meet up with you guys in Taiwan next week! Lurf ya, gal.

I'm a Girl Next Door leh ... right or left side?

Sharon, you're a Girl Next Door!

You are the Girl Next Door

Cute, fun, and sweet, you're Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston, and Meg Ryan all rolled up into one — the perfect Girl Next Door. Naturally pretty, unpretentious, and generous, you demand your share of respect, but you aren't particularly high-maintenance. What's your ideal date? Probably a Blockbuster night — you don't mind skipping an evening on the town if it means getting some old-fashioned snuggling on the sofa. Careful yet spontaneous, you're a little bit of the Guy's Girl, a smidge of Sorority Sister (the nice kind), and just a hint of the Hippie Chick. But you've got an appeal that's all your own, which is why the guys can't stay away. People are attracted to your strong values and traditional ways. Your winning smile, bright eyes, and loving nature will make anyone want to hold on tight and never let go.


You can tell I'm stressed by the amount of bo-liao tests I am doing. Haha.
And I'm actually buay pai seh to paste such flattering results on my blog....double haha.
Too bad I dun really like Jennifer Aniston, but Sandra Bullock and Meg Ryan are cool.
Anymore fun tests, can throw my way.
I'll do them when I want to sleep but can't. :P

How can I be a spatial thinker when I am such a klutz?!
This is so weird.
