The morning rain cancelled my plans to go to the gym and for my swim. Ugh, i tell you Singapore has the craziest weather. When the sun is out and about, we complain that its getting too hot and we want the rain. But when the rains come, they come accompanied with hoards of water from goodness knows where and loads of lightning and thunder. The whole atmosphere is soaking wet and dark making my mood rather gloomy.

Well at the end of the day my mopping was heard at the Great heavens as the sky cleared and the huge, bright, yellow round sun came out and i happily got my roller blades on and headed out with my dark shades.

I tried out a new route today. It was great, as in i really had a good work out and it was a fun route with me speeding along, swerving and looking like an absolute maniac at times.

Although i feel that i need a blading buddy, i kind of enjoy the me time. But i still would like to have a blading buddy.

But i doubt if there are any around.

Anyway i got to go, the movie Taal starring Aishwariya Rai is on. Always been a great fan of that movie.

Can someone tell me?

1)I have been wanting to learn how to surf for very long. Are there any clubs/soceities that teach how to surf. But i doubt if any great waves can be caught at the Singapore beaches. Still i want to learn.

2)Any club / soceity on scuba diving? Been wanting to do that for very long as well.

3)Any Ice hockey club for recreational players? I need to learn first. If it aint possible, how about inline hockey. Wanted to join inline hockey in 2006 but gave up the idea as it was a activity out of school and debates was taking up too much of my free time. Also i didn't pursue it as i couldn't commit for the female soccer team as well.

I just want to join a sport as i haven't since i used to play basketball in TKGS. If anyone happens to know, can you please tell me? Thanks a bunch !

Its cool

The flu was irritating.

The itchy throat last thursday made my mother gloat over the fact that i am going to fall sick and she used to utter those words of her every ten minutes. Well her words came true on Friday. The fever and the running nose have disppeared but the cough is still around and it will take ages for it to leave me.

Besides all the gloom about having to spend my entire weekend lying at home there was nothing that i could do.

So in other words i will cut the crap and start on the quiz that i got Dagny to interview me. Below is the email that she sent me along with the instructions.

The following are your questions. Below those are the directions that should also be included in the post.

1. What is your favorite type of book?

2. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

3. You have unlimited funds. What are the first three things you would do with your wealth?

4. Which blogger would you trade places with for a day?

5. And finally, an easy one -- what's your favorite color?

Here are the instructions to continue:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.


My answers:

1) Classics are my favourite type of books. Little Woman, Jane Eyre, Anne of Green Gables are my favourite books till date. I still enjoy re-reading them.

2)Ok this is a tough one for me. I think it will the U.S.A but i am still not sure. For all you know, i wouldn't mind settling in India in about 15 - 20 years time.

3) Unlimited funds in today's materialistic world is such a boon. Alright here are my 3 wishes genie:
- 1st thing : Get out of here and get myself an overseas education. Tuition fees, living costs and all other costs are happily covered.
-2nd thing: Get myself a wonderful pair of custom made cowboy boots and learn horse riding.
-3rd thing: A get - away to the sinking islands of Maldives - just me and my best friend.
Tell me my wants are simple.

4) No one, seriously.

5) Purple. I think very few people know about this. Yeap its purple, but its not the dark shade, i like the lighter shades of purple. Lilac and Lavender are amazing shades of purple.

There i am done. Thanks Dagny once again and if there is anyone who is interested in being interviewed by yours truly, do leave me a tag or a comment.

I thing this quiz/tag/meme is really cool. If there are any more of these kind of things, do let me know.

So thats about it, nothing interesting. Hope i get to interview some people.

The Little Bugger

is a real bugger.

I had plans for today and they were gloriously cancelled thanks to a microscopic bug called influenza or flu for short.

I wish i could pick it and give it two tight slaps so that it remembers never to come near me again.

But i know i can't and i am too drowsy to continue.

Will post later again as i have loads to say.

All i want is


Yeap that is right.

I am tired about everything. No i am not angsty right now, i am just tired.

I need that someone, that is new in my life that can teach me how to trust again and how to laugh.

I am serious about me learning how to laugh. The last hearty laugh i had is now in my memory that i have been preserving through these very trying times. These memories lighten my heart, make my lips turn up and give me a glimpse of hope to carry on.

But i really feel as if i am lagging. I need some change that can revive me. I need to get over this feeling that i keep having: the likelyhood of tears welling up in my eyes as the horrible memories flood past the barriers that i have put in my mind can result in me having a huge breakdown anytime.

I am tough, but i feel that if i have been placed on this earth to help others, isn't there someone who is here on earth that is here to help me?

I am not being selfish and i am not throwing a tantrum. I am just tired of being the object that is being volleyed to and fro without any rest. I am just asking for some comfort.

I am not demanding, i guess i will be fine if my want isn't fulfilled.

I guess if i am not broken at the end of all this, i will be a stronger person.

What it is about Exams that really freaks me out

My fear for exams is not the inability of not being able to understand or comprehand the questions. I am not being over confident here by claiming that i am a complete know it all and smart ass that is able to sprout facts about Economics and Geography without a second or analysing a piece of text at its first reading. The actual reason as to why i am not very concerned about this is issue is because i really do feel that if i have studied hard enough and do know what is needed and am confident that i do know the necessary details well enough, it is just a matter or twisting the question around to suit what you know and pen it all down. ( I know this sounds really easy to say right now but i think by the A levels, a majority - if not all of the students should be able to put the above into action. )

What i am really afraid about for exams especially the major ones is the possibility of having a complete blank out and not being able to remember a single detail. Along with that, i am afraid that this phase will not be momentary but rather something that prevents me from completing the entire exam paper, which in turn results in me having miserable grades and facing the prospect of not achieving my goals.

Actually i am so afraid about this that i have now decided that i am not going to be posting this up till after my A levels. I know this sounds silly but this feeling that i get is a nagging one that is always present in my head.

However, because of this i have indeed prepared myself that if the unexpected ever happens and threatens to upset whatever situation that i am in, i will not panic and try to gain control of the situation and make the best out of it instead of giving up and lifting my hands of the entire situation.

Where there is a will, there is a way - i have always felt that this quote has always made loads of sense because if someone is deteremined enough to get their goals fulfilled, they will indeed be prepared to face both the good and the bad that comes along the way and prove it to others that it is indeed possible to make their dreams come true instead of simply leaving on cloud number 9.

The revealings of Sitemeter

I know that my blog hasn't been very active as i have been having mood swings and my obstinance can make me write absolute nonsense that i would think of as perfect sense when i am not in the right mood. Nope its nothing major, its just personal conflicts that would make me seem like a schizophrenic to all those that read this blog. The truth actually is that for some reason, i am enjoying the personal time that i have right now. My outings have not been reduced but they aren't as frequent as others. Maybe its just another new phase that will pass. As to when will it pass, i have no idea and i am in no rush.

I know that my blog is mundane, it isn't filled with daily anecdotes. My writing is definately plain and nothing fanciful. I am definately not complaining about my blog or comparing myself with other bloggers and feeling absolutely horrid because it is my choice that i do not feel like blogging.

Today's post was meant to be relective but it is actually going to go out to a certain someone who reads my blog. Thanks for reading my blog and having my blog under your links but i would like to know who you are, if you don't mind. I am guessing that your screen name is shutale/denise. I tried to figure out who you are but i couldn't. I would absolutely love to receive a email from you. Please send it to the email address that you find at the top right hand corner.
And your way of writing is amazing, poetic yet prose - like in content.

I think i will sign off here as i am not willing to blog about my work currently but will definately do so once my stint at this place is over. All i am going to say is that this place is interesting and i never thought i would work at this place. The work is interesting, hilarious and exasperating. Its just amazing.

Thats it......Ta to ya'll
