a long day

Had a really long day yesterday. Went for my routine waxing, manicure and pedicure, haircut, colouring and treatment for the Chinese New Year, (LOL..), dinner, ShaoLin movie by Andy Lau. sinful MacDonald's supper! I felt so totally drained out yet accomplished when I finally lied down on my bed this morning at 0530. Haha...

Had been eating quite a bit. Great company over the past 8days with batchboy, we had so much food, wine and desserts together, then plus late night fast food supper, plus the steamboat dinner later and the Korean BBQ tomorrow. I want to go jogging soon. Sometimes I love being overseas. You have all the time to yourself, and the gym is just so conveniently inside the hotel and I can drag my fat big ass and head for an at least good 30min run.

I will be around these few days (not considering those turnarounds) until 2ND day of Chinese New Year and I am off to Munich! Something to look forward to. Hehe... Alright, off to prepare to go out. Have a great weekend! :)

任性,固执,大小姐,没很多人会喜欢。Thank you to all friends who have been there, taking up my nonsenses at times, tolerating my hot-temper. Till now, 2011 has been great. Lots of fun and of course love. =) Thank you all for contributing, and god will bless us with many many more better months ahead! Finally going home soon! I have enough of the winter cold and I wanna come home to feel the atmosphere of Chinese New Year. Hehe. Till I am back!

This winter

Hi New York

I had a serious great time with Alex in New York. Breakfast at Alice's Tea Cup, SOHO and Barneys New York for shopping (though we didn't buy anything), Magnolia's cupcake and banana pudding, coffee for the warmth, Japanese dinner and skyping with each other over the net. Cold isn't fun. I kind of detest winter, cos it makes me feel weak all over. But embracing the cold with good friend was fun. No happy buys, no shopping loot, but the amount of laughter and quality time spent together was priceless, makes me ever more contented than I get my expensive pair of shoes or my branded bag. =)

I have a sweet tooth most of the time. Just finish one huge slice of strawberry cheesecake by myself while typing this entry away. Sweet food makes me happy most of the times. Sometimes I unknowingly show my "not so happy" temper through my tone of voice while talking on the phone, my "not so pleased" whatapps messages, throwing the tantrums that only belong to me, and yet trying very hard to suppress it so that I don't flare and look like a crazy woman.

I guess a lot of times it takes a lot of efforts to understand a person who is not standing at your point of view. I should learn to understand logics and rationals behind every complication, and not be an unreasonable and stubborn solo human being who insists on her values. Which is the real me? The one who always tries to accommodate so that everything gets picture perfect? Or the one who laughs as and when she wants, cries as and when she feels like it, flares up because she feels unjustified, holding on to things that she hopelessly desire, and loves because she feels like falling in love?

It's tough decision I guess. It's never easy to find that missing puzzle that completes you. Life is a challenge and I am taking on it. Good luck to me, to us and to the future. It's quite a journey ahead.

Time for a short nap before waking up to prepare for work. Heading back to Frankfurt and be back to Singapore day after. Pictures will be up soon, after I QC all of them from Alex's camera. Hehe.

freezing New York

Just woke up from a well-needed sleep in the Big Apple. It's freaking minus 8 degrees here. Snow covering the ground, wind blowing your face like you can die anytime, and my flu catching up with me again. It all sounded very negative...but nonetheless, it's New York you know. Despite the extreme weather, upon arriving, we had a good bowl of piping hot ramen at Sapporo, just a few blocks away from the hotel. Then went to roam around Fifth Avenue with the favourite batchboy!

Embracing the cold was a challenge but I had so much fun with him, holding his slim but fit arms (LOL), singing along the streets, laughed out loud at the slightest thing. Haha.. This is fun. :p

It's how strange that I seem to have the "Dear Kelly" face. People( Guys) start coming to me about their personal problems, as if I could provide them some top ten solutions. And it's also how strange some people just ironically reminded you of somebody else. I remembered the secret connection we had. I remembered the feeling he first gave me. I remembered how crazy I had used to feel. But that was then. Most importantly, we are all happy now, though many of times, I seem to feel that I have lost my niche of knowing what I actually want and love. Like what the batchboy said, "you don't know what you want la...." I am still in the process of finding that connection, that urge, and secretly hoping that it will make me want to die for it again. =)

greater moments ahead.

Off days after Zurich were spent having Chong Qing steamboat, chilling out at City Space at Swiss Hotel with the girls, night talking and suppering with a friend who told me so much about his life, what life should be, and how somehow his conversation amazed me. Then I headed for a really short and tiring work trip to Sydney. With minimum rest, I caught up with friends to celebrate a belated birthday, which was simple, fun and meaningful. :) And then I am heading off to Frankfurt and New York next. This year....has begun well I guess. So much so for what have happened and are happening. =) Let's continue to be hopeful and pray for greater moments ahead!

last minute

Someone told me last night, life is about last minute, life is about impromptu. All along I thought life should be planned, so that everything will be smooth and sailing. Then again, I asked myself. I kind of like the thrills and excitement behind all the uncertainties. Maybe that is the official real me. I like to have a plan, a certain degree of formality to justify a level of certainty, and at the same time, I like risks, I enjoy the feeling of running against ideas of majority, the roller coaster thrills that captivate my heartbeat. I am such woman. HAha..

Like a fellow colleague commented the other day, "yolene i can see you aren't easily tamed. you need someone who can control, lead and tame you. you seem you can't follow the rigidity of love. you need fun, and plenty of excitement." Shucks...I think he reads people. No....He reads mind. Lol..


Steamboat later. Slurps. :p

Evidences of my gym workout..! :p

Zurich is a little rainy, cold but bearable, peaceful and happy!=D
Looking forward to coming home, plenty of errands to run and people to meet. ;)
And once again, Happy Birthday to Mrs Chua! (you know who you are. hehe...)

Many good things

Off to freezing Zurich tonight.

Many good things worth happy about, happened.
SO... I think I am happy. Haha.

More to come! The uncertainty may become certainty one day. I don't know what's the best thing to do, the right decision to make, but I guess I will see the light soon, some day. =) We should all look forward to the future, embrace in whatever we do, embrace in what we believe. Right?

Have a great new week ahead! Till Zurich! :)

I thought I sleep quite a couple of hours and when I woke up, I realised my body was resting but my mind was all night awake, running stupid thoughts. This is crap! Haha...

给你说中了, 我真的是口是心非!

Okay, nevermind. Positivity and happiness are state of mind. Today is Saturday and it will be beautiful!

我要加油! Hehe..






the friday thought

It was another rainy day. Miss the morning jog (I should jolly well know I am not a morning person. I snoozed the alarm till lunch hours. *kekeke*), my parents were spring cleaning the house and I was there using my laptop, eating my blueberries from London, and my dad almost screamed and said he would throw my laptop away when I am not at home. HAHA... Made a trip to town in the evening for dinner, and just when I said I want to stop spending unnecessarily, I spent more than a hundred just a night. On a pair of boots from a korean shop (giving excuse that I need it very often for overseas work trip...:p), eyelashes and eyes-shadow palette(giving excuse I need them for work. lol...)

Wanted to end the night with some alcohol but ended up I didn't. Came back home to laze on bed. Hehe..

life is good

I think god has been kind to me. Life has been good so far for the new year. Many nice people, I "tried" to exercise more and snack lesser :D, take more fruits and cutting down on gassy drinks, catch up on the always much needed sleep, trying my best to cut down on my shopaholic attitude *grin*, and no matter how tough something can be, it will eventually be solved. Thank you so much. Please continue to grant me more patience in me, let me continue meeting all the good people, I don't mind hardships but please reward me with sweet fruits and happily ever after. Nothing beats happiness. Nothing beats being together with the family, the beloved one(s) and the friends. Please enthrone us with good health and sufficient assets to enjoy good life. :)

Like what I told missy ling earlier. I think I don't want the tall and handsome men anymore. Someone who loves me, has time for me, accepts my flaws, got money and want to marry me. I am simple. Haha.

I just...haven't met him, yet. :)

London's note

The delicacy in London. Almost every time I come to London, I must eat it. This time round I tried it with flat rice noodles. :)

I have a random thought running in my mind again....

Everyday we are faced with choices to make. Choices like what to eat, where to go, who to meet, what to do, etc. And even in our realistic life, who to like, who to love, who to be together, who to marry, etc. And every choice follows an after-effect which we call it the consequence. The good consequence we call it the happily ever after, whereas the negative one we call it the mistake. But life shouldn't be measured by mistakes isn't it? Even the worst consequence, we have to accept it because we make the decision, we make the choice, and we have to bear with the consequence. And I very much deem to call this "a process".

It’s not about what you do. It’s about who you are. It’s not about who you are right now. It’s about who you could be. It’s not about what could go wrong. It’s about what will go right…

Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.

What do you think?

With batchboy Alex after Ros's ROM Party! :)

And by the way...

I just ended the night with a sweet note. :)
