Slept at 5.30am, so did my fiance, who worked OT...so that he could take leave today (Thurs) to accompany me on my free day. By the time we woke up was 12 plus...ate a bit, played some piano...then went to Marina Square for the POC movie. Happened to redeem my reward points for a free movie ticket, plus HSBC credit card got $1 off for GV movie tics. So total cost for 2 was $7. We went in at 5pm, came out at ard 8pm! Didn't realise it was so long...except for my bladder which is mildly bursting. But the show was good...Read more
Your Psyche is Yellow
You have a ton of energy - both physical and mental endurance.
You are rational and logical, and you can help almost anyone think clearly.
Optimistic and bright, you also have a secret side that's a little darker.
When you are too yellow: You will do anything to get your way, and no one will be the wiser
When you don't have enough yellow: you lack confidence, dri...Read more

Into about my 5th mth in teaching piano. Yep, more my cup of tea as compared to accounts. But somehow i feel that something is still missing......my desire to perform.
Just had a conversation with one of my church choir friends who's a doctor, as well as self taught jazz pianist, who was with Thomson Jazz Band. And currently having his own jammings/stints. He was the one who introduced mainstream jazz to me by lending me many CDs, some scores and jamming with me at his house. He even bought a double bass to learn the jazz bass pa...Read more

hi....figuratively putting my head on the chopping board. Feel vulnerable to show my cheongsam photos...
Collected my cheongsam from this outside boutique, and posted the photos, which were taken at home by family, without make-up on. Guess may need to alter from between now till Oct...see how.
Hmm...tmr is my 2nd fitting for my made-to-measure (MTM) evening gown...plus 1st fitting of my cheongsam made at an outside shop. Pretty excited...quite high expectations of how they'd turn out to be.
Had a big hand in the design of the dresses, altho the colours were mainly suggested by the seamstress/designers.
Feeling a bit stressed haha. Coz since i myself am very critical and have pretty high expectations, ironically, i fear criticisms on the dresses if i post the pictures online. After all, the dresses are more or ...Read more
Quite new to my recently taken up profession...only into my 3rd mth or so.
I'm quite pissed about things that some parents nitpick about.
1) How come the teacher doesn't write homework on the board?
First of all, i already said, feel free to take down notes as the lesson progresses, and if any qns, JUST ASK ME!!! Shouldn't you be responsible to take down the topics of the lessons as it's being taught in class??? And this was not told to me, it was told to my admin ppl. Secondly, i was not informed that ...Read more
