Bag Lady

Mom brought me to her room today and showed me what she bought from L.A. And among other things, saw this mass of black Nine West bags on her bed… plus one Guess bag. Gifts she says… asked me to choose what I want first. I did. Got 2 new bags now… just wish I had a white one as well. *grin* And oh! She got me a splendid new watch too! Just when I needed one… She’s a mind-reader! And I’m []

Ping-Pong Anyone?

Went to Bras Basah Complex yesterday with two of my ping-pong bats and got the rubber changed. It’s mind-boggling the array of things they have now as compared to 10 years ago… high tension rubber, high spin etc etc. Chose a high-tension rubber for my forehand (greater control for spins w/o compromising on speed, supposedly) and a harder rubber for my backhand (better for ‘pushing’). I also changed the rubber for one other competition-grade bat so that I can lend a good []

Meeting up again

Best part of being back in Singapore: Reunions. Picked my dear brother up from SAFTI yesterday evening and went out for dinner at Suntec with him, his Cathy and Zibin. Jet-lag whalloped me halfway through dinner and I would have slept at the table if not for the fact that I was really, really hungry. I fell asleep in the car when we were sending Cathy home though and nothing could wake me up. Not even when the guys stopped to buy []

Where's My Igloo?

There’s nothing like jet-lag to get a girl’s mind wandering at 4a.m. Following the path my wayward mind has decided to lead me on, I returned once again to the conundrum that’s been plaguing the back of my mind increasingly often lately. Where do I belong? Sometimes I tell myself it’s not a big deal, this question of belonging to either Canada or Singapore. Citizenship is just a ‘technicality’ afterall, isn’t it? Then why is it everytime I return to Singapore I []

Back in Singapore

Hot, hot, sticky, sticky. Sudden downpours, sheets of rain. Noisy (tv) bus rides. Mosquitoes. Shorts & sandals everywhere. Slow internet connection. Yep. No doubt about it… Back in Singapore.

Transit in HK

17 hours since take-off in Toronto and I’m doing well! Haven’t slept so much on a plane since I don’t remember when… think I slept for about 12 of the 17 hours. And for the first time EVER I actually took out my lap-top on board to work. I actually feel like I’m on a business trip, travelling from one conference to another, working on power point slides on the plane instead of watching movie marathons as I usually do. Am being []

T.O. Gal

It’s funny the little things I take for granted in Toronto. Like a quality Jap meal for under $15. While I was in London, Ont. today for the CSSE conference, Erin felt like having sushi for lunch. We drove around a while till we found a decent looking Jap place. Fish wasn’t all that fresh. Portions weren’t all that big. The bill was another matter… $44 for the 2 of us. Lunch! On the way to London we drove by some gorgeous []

New Look

It’s 1:26a.m. and i’m still not through practising for tomorrow’s presentation… and what do I do? Drink my first cup of coffee in about 4 years and decide to change the look of my blog to something that actually is a little more “me”. I’ve never really been an autumny person anyway.
