I covet King David's heart

I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.
~Frederick Douglass~

Whatever games are played with us, we must play no games with ourselves.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

The evil are devious. The righteous must be even more "devious".
~from a Stephen Chow movie~

Haha! Wisdom to be gleaned from Zhou Xing Chi.

I don't know if this is good or bad.
I'm getting more and more adept at recognising the games humans play, but I'm not getting any quicker at reacting to them.
Maybe I'm naive, but it still shocks me when I get a glimpse of the human heart from time to time.
It frustrates me to the core when people can't seem to play straight.
It stuns me so I lose my concentration for a few minutes there.
And it's everywhere!

It's getting increasingly harder to be real.

What can I give in exchange for the wisdom and heart of God in me?

laksa pasta

We had our department lunch at WildRocket today and it's such a good find! :)

I had the laksa pesto linguine-something and it was good!

Oh, so was the tiramisu and dark lava and strawberry cheesecake.
Oh yummy.

taiwan taiwan

I'm in Taiwan again, but only for 4 days this time.
Which is good, 'cos it gives my face time to recover from the whiplash of the previous trip. :P
Okei, while we are waiting for our cab ... a quick update:

We're in another hotel this time!
I lurf trying new places ... it's boring to stick to the same stuff all the time when you're overseas.
And I lurf the hotel room!!
It's spacious enough to make me feel like we have our own personal space, plus Amy and I get a queen-sized bed EACH!
Hee hee.
Plus the room's a proper rectangular shape, with no absurd corners...
Plus my bed is at the end.
I lurf it when I can take in everything at a glance, seeing I don't have eyes at the back of my head, and it gives you a headache to keep scanning your environment.

Okei I am starving, but we are going to the printers now!
Craving for KFC. :P

I got the pics!! :)

I like this one, 'cos it's easy to see why yah?

This one for the mimosa-looking thing in the middle.

And this one, just cos it cracks me up! It looks like a demented claw! Hahaha...

And here's a conventional one...

Here's us having some fun in an alley...

Charlie and his angels, supposedly...

Here's the real "HAIYAH!" pic, before we scurried away into the safety of the dark alley...hee hee.

pretty rain

Okei, I'm aware that this is sappy.
But I just saw the prettiest rainfall!
If you wanna feel like you're on the inside of a waterfall, get perched at a vertigo-inducing level the next rainy day (with the window grilles out of the way) and PEER DOWN.
Lovelier with lotsa trees down below.

Yes, I tried to take a picture, but the Cybershot is as inept with rainfall as it is with fireworks. :P

Yay! I caught fireworks tonight, thanks to Wan Ee! :)
She asked me along for dinner with ooh la la Ash, and designer-Adrian came along impromptu-ly.

Gosh, it certainly felt like we never stopped eating tonight ... :P
We hit one restaurant and 2 cafes in a few hours.
But we started and ended with dessert, and everyone knows that dessert doesn't count.

Okei, here's a pic of the fireworks.

I know!! How disappointing is my Cybershot?!
This pic does no justice to the show AT ALL.
I gave up after a few pics, cos they were so nothing....
Never mind, will wait for the other pics from Ash and Adrian.

This year's crowd was hilarious.
They were wow-ing at EVERYTHING.
And Ash and I kept laughing sneakily at this super-loud, super-beng boy behind us.

"You call these fireworks?!"
"Come on lah, all these one-line one-line fireworks ... delay time only..."
"Oei! Sit down lah!!"

I've found a new blogskin!
But it's not up yet, cos I'm still tweaking it.

For now, I've finally gotten my photos uploaded so here are a few of them!

Yi) On hols in Bintan

Shazperenza Bloom! All I need are my elf ears.

After-lunch drowsiness hits!

I like this pic cos of the sampan in the middle of nowhere ...

Isn't this gorgeous?!

They went nuts playing foozball in the middle of the night ... I think we woke the whole resort.

Er) My first working trip to Taipei, Taiwan!

That's the typhoon/tropical storm brewing in Taipei! There were 2 of them actually. The first one was spinning wildly towards Taipei and looked set to hit during the Emerge Conference, but it dissipated into nothing much, which was great ... I really think it was all the prayers. The Taiwanese said they had never seen such a bizarre typhoon ever. Haha.

The second one was the nite before I returned to Singapore. But it was disappointing ... I kinda pictured us gasping at the uprooted trees etc, but it turned out to be mostly just heavy rain and trees swaying in the wind. :P

My colleagues and me having a yummy dinner (mostly our only meal for the day, cos of our warped sleeping habits :P)

San) Out of Mulan's shadow ...

This skirt makes me feel like a gal! Never mind that I keep tripping over it when I climb stairs. :P

Now I've lost all my links! :P
What's everyone's blog address??

Quick update me!!

Tuesday, August 8, 2006


Okei, I've done it.
I've crossed over to the dark side.
I got sick of the pale background and the anorexic font on it that I can't change 'cos there are no editing buttons when I make my posts!
Why? Cos blogger is not fruit-friendly.
At least this template comes with a better font.

Somehow the dark side looks brighter.
