Sleepless in Singapore

What a morning.

I drag myself out of bed, grudgingly brush my teeth, hop into the shower and pack my make-up case to get out of my place by 6am so that I can get to ESPN for Caltex Score Today on Star Sports.

I waltz into the make-up room only to find Paula (fellow ESPN-er and in my opinion the most beautiful woman to have ever been on TV) finishing up hair and make-up.


Yeah, I got the roster mixed up... I'm on tomorrow morning instead of today.


Oh well, I'm sleepy right now but I don't particularly want to go back to bed 'cause then I won't be exhausted enough to fall asleep at 10pm tonight.

So instead I cooked a big American Breakfast; bacon, scrambled eggs, toast, baked beans, .. (I figured why not since I went grocery shopping yesterday anyways...). And so I sat down, with Skit and munched away. Really wasn't feeling too hungry as I had a big dinner last night (extra Bolognaise sauce, anyone?), but it was something to keep me awake. Or so I thought. Now I'm so full, I wanna just crawl back between the sheets............

Okay 'nuff about bed. I'm going to do some housecleaning. Then I'm going to Marie France to get a massage, have lunch in town, and then head over to Skin Couture (LOVE LOVE THE CLOTHES) to see what they have there. Then I'm going to come back home, grab my beautiful pink laptop and head off for class tonight.

I like having my day planned out. :D

So tomorrow morning I have: Caltex Score Today, Lunch Appointment, Uni Seminar 3-6pm, and an event to attend that evening. Woot! It'll be the weekend, am hoping to relax a little, its been a while since I *didn't* have to do a research paper over the weekend. Its going to be a great weekend, I can already tell. :)

Speaking of fun weekends, anyone of you guys dressing up for Halloween? I always leave it till the last minute, sigh.. last year I was a Nurse. *hehehehhee* here's a great picture I managed to pull up from that little party I had last year.

The dude with the Elvis SideBurns, can just imagine him going Johnny Bravo, using Paris Hilton's D'you love it? line. hehehehehehhee!!

Okay yes yes I know its been AGES since my last post. Sigh. Am currently goin through intensive modules of Islam and Human rights, just finished Legal Anthropology and European Private Intrtnational Law. I've just submitted my paper for Anthropology, Euro Private Law due this weekend. *shiver* I am afraid. I am very very afraid.

That said, I must say things are going well work-wise. Just did a cover shoot today (out December, keep a lookout! ;) ) and I am getting busy with hosting this week as well. Will be hosting the New Paper New Face 2007 finals this Thursday night at Ngee Ann City. Should be fun! ;)
As a token of my apology, here's two behind the stage pictures I took during the "Rock Week" theme for Live the Dream. ;)

Just the bunch you wanna introduce to your Mummy...

Oh c'mon, you know we had to. ;)

Burning the Midnight Oil

So yes.

I have been the busy chicka the last coupla days. Sorry-lah. Girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. ;)

So here I am now sitting at my *pink laptop*, stroking Demi who is asleep on my lap, with them two SKII eye-masks under my eyes. HAHA! Yep a friend of mine flew in from Shanghai, and I got him to buy me them eye mask things. Yes, I am a victim of well angled advertising/marketing campaigns. Will write a review about it, but for now I can safely say that

1. They're quite expensive. :S
2. They're really big!

One eye mask already goes from under my eye, almost down the length of my nose. ie. they're across my cheekbone. Part of it anyway. Good I guess, 'cause if it works not only will I downgrade from "Check-in-Luggage" to "Hand-Carry" sized eyebags, but I'll have 'Pitera' enriched cheeks! hehe.

Oh and on a sidenote, I went to get my nails done over the weekend, and decided to get acrylic extentions. Mum always said I never really needed them (but they're so pretty!), but it was an impulse thing. They're pretty expensive, my darling friend had to tell me when he got back that, "Eh, apparently its like 40 sing dollars (as opposed to $140) to do in Shanghai."

Gee, thanks ah. Next time you fly me there and I get them done there then!! Grr.

Alrighty then. My course on Islamic law begins next week, joy oh joy. The lecturer is a really supremo feminist intellectual, so it'll be really interesting to meet a woman who is more "Girl Power" than me. Heh.

Oh also, I caught "Knocked-Up" sometime back, and it really got me smiling. Its a really sweet sweet show, yet very real (in some bits - which is more than you can ask for in a Hollywood chick-flick). It poses some questions I'd like to share my answers with you, let me know what you think as well.

1. Would you MARRY a guy/girl who has absolutely no ambition, has a hundred dollars in savings, and smokes pot?
Nope. 'Cause I don't appreciate people who indulge in recreational drugs.. how to have kids? "Why can't I smoke weed??! Daddy smoked pot when he was my age!!". Also, I need to know that my man will be able to support me - and I don't mean that he needs to be rich. What if something happened to me? We need to be able to always afford things we *need* (note: not things we WANT) - and things like that are essential. Also, I need to be with someone as ambitious as I am. Otherwise I'll feel really isolated and alone in my ambitions and aspirations. We need to have a common goal that we both should have to work on, to at least be able to focus ourselves in something else other than making the relationship work.

2. Would you stay in a marriage if you're both not right for each other?
Hmm. Tough one. I think essentially most human beings can get along as long as they work at it, and lets face it, Marriage is Alot of Work. Especially in today's day and age, it takes alot of effort from both parties to ensure that (some?) happiness springs from it. If I have kids, I'll definitely invest a good 10 years in trying to make it work (but he'll have to try as well)... but if we both don't have kids, I would consider divorce if we're DEFINITELY not right for one another. We'd probably be better off with other people. Anyway there are several things that are grounds for divorce in any situation to say the least; namely compulsive cheating, gambling, alcohoism, abuse... So yes. I would consider breaking a marriage up, but it'd have to be under extremely dire circumstsances.

3. Would you abort a baby if it was an 'accident'?
NO. Babies are gifts from God la. Cannot. Can NOT. Besides. I was an unplanned child! My parent's didn't intend to have another kid, and whoopsie, I happened!

4. Ok I'm out of questions. :D

ps. I'm not spellchecking this post, and my nails still need some getting used to. So apologies for the typos if any.
