gosh, i reali missed all my friends and family in spore! esp this xmas season.. missing the parties , the food, and fabulous company! of cos the presents too, kkekekekeekekek!

although i miss spore a lot, but im stil havin a great time over here! Esp since after i hav been checkin out the salsa scene here, kekkekeke.. im starting to go out til late @ night..! hahahha.
i will keep a lookout for myself, dun worry my dear frens. luckily back in spore, i hav trained myself to b kinda lone ranger, or else i wont b able to go to the club on my own here, and if i hav to wait for the philipinos or pple here to go wif me, i dun tink i would ever able to check out the salsa here @ all! ;D

Merry Xmas to everyone!!!!
Although this yr is my 1st time being away frm home esp during this season.. but i stil do receive xmas presents! ;D

Wanna say thanks to DongHong who had sent the knitted 'scarf' to me, the cards that Peichi, darren & mary chap sent. the chocolates tat i hav frm lyn, joanne & frm my CNM, and the perfume frm the xmas jingle. ;)

thanks to all my friends who had sent their regards, emails and sms to me too on xmas. ;) reali touched! that i am not forgotten. ;p

workin on xmas day, hopefuly it'll b a peaceful day though. ;)

Saturday, December 23, 2006

gosh, i felt so tired today after work.. suppoingly to be having a peaceful day, but juz one collapse of pt reali kept us up to our toes for few hours! and it is my 1st time showing to them my serious temperament, esp during such resuscitation!

it was in such a mess when i went over to help and reali couldnt stand the unorganised N.staffs, i 'told off' the specific staff, and finally everything got in control. Sigh.. it was kinda disappointing to see how bad she had managed the situation, anyway, it doesnt matter anymore, as long as pt did received the best resuscitation care. luckily we have the right senior ard too.
anyway, this is a good way and experience to know who is reali a good worker and who is not.

another lesson learned today:
no matter wat present u received frm the xmas jingle, no matter how crap you tink it is, dun ever throw it away frm the plce you hav taken it, cos the sender might see it in the bin, and the situation would get reali embarrassing.

PS - of cos it doesnt happen to me, cos i would never ever do tat. i always keep all the presents that i received. it was someone from the workplce here who had done it and my god, it was reali veri sucky..

so folks, rem, if you reali dun like wat u had received, dispose it after xmas. Or u can give it to someone else who u tink wil appreciate the present, or to someone whom you reali dun like. ;p

ok folks, i wil be leaving to Belfast soon, on the irishrail, and frankly, im having butterflies in my stomach, i dun know why.. its so weird taht im reali feelin so excited about this trip, prob bcos its part of UK and i am about to explore the salsa scene over ther..

bought a new travel bag, which i thought it mgiht b a little big, but wel, its a bit small actualy.. or is it that i brought too many things.. ;p i juz dun wanna be not bringin enough.. ;D

this is almost the same feelin when my 1st trip wif the group to the msia salsa festival.. excited & reali lookin forward to the trip!

Oh.. im gettin to miss all my friends back in singapore a little bit too much now... and its not gettin any better esp with DARREN counting down to the days he will be going back to spore for xmas and new yr!!! Darn!!!

check out the galway salsa congress pics!
i dun reali know if i shld be happy or not, cos i will be workin on xmas day itself, which i have fully expected it, and although i had mentally prepared myself abt it, but stil when i see my schedule for the wk, i stil have mixed feelings.. wel, the way that i see it in my positive way is that i will be paid double for workin on xmas. =)
And i will be workin on the eve of new year, 31 Dec. ;) not too bad to be working on 31st as i will b paid as well, cos its a sunday. ;p
kekkekek.. so folks, dun ask me anymore abt wat's my plan for the xmas and new yr okie?
but of cos, the days b4 xmas and new yr, are all my day offs! so no wory, i wont b working my life out here!

Wednesday, December 13, 2006

Folks, found this dance clip in one of the forums.. ;)
im going to belfast this wkend, and im reali excited! going to take the train on my own! ;D no wory, i'll be meetin up with darren's fren, keith & his wifey and their baby gal! im not goin to be realli alone, hehe!!
i reali dun like it when G keeps tinking tat she is the MRS KNOW_IT_ALL... oops sorry, its MS. she's not even married, but is a single-mum.
Dun ever get me wrong. im have nothing against with the idea of being a single mum. the thing that i dun like is when people being SMUG & PROUD, tinking they know everything but in fact they reali hav no clue abt it! this is not the 1st time that i snapped @ her, i didnt wan to but i juz cant help it.
anyway, i can go on writing a thesis abt G, but im not goin to, juz not goin to let her spoil my mood right now. I dun wanna to b Ms Grumpy/ Bitchy.

I remembered the plans that we had when we 1st came over, like going for trips in europe, US, gettin the visas to go here, ther.. then when i learned to know that i dun need a Visa to travel to UK, she was kinda 'jealous', i can hear it from her voice when i told her tat. juz when i told her that im planning to go belfast, which is northern ireland & its under UK. & now, i oso found out that i dun need a visa to visit US, she was reali even more sore abt it. she asked "why u dun need a visa to US?" Same answer frm me to her, " Cos im a singaporean...." i know she hated it.

I have never been so proud of being a Singaporean, not juz bcos that i dun a visa to travel to these plces, but ever since im here, when people ask me abt spore, all i talk of are all the good things in spore, how convenient the transport is, how beautiful & clean the plce is, the whole variety of food and cultures in spore.. the nightspots, the shopping centers.. everything!
the ugly side of typical singaporeans that i reali dislike are all forgotten and forgiven. all the K's of singaporeans.. kiasu, kiasi.. u folks know the rest.. ;p

so to my folks back home, dun worry that i wont be coming back, cos i know i will be. unless i hav found another plce better than home, but hey, nowher is better than home!! ;D

| View Show | Create Your Own
i know i stil love you, but its @ the price of breaking someone else's heart..
i can see the hurt in this poor guy's eyes, and i felt reali stupid and wat a bitch i am with wat i'd done to him..
wanted to say sorry to him but i didnt,
wanted to tell u that im still tinking of u, but i cant,
wanted so much to be with you, but we cant,
i realli realli realli felt veri bad right now, but i cant let it out..
am i suppressing myself too much, am i tinking too much..
no, its my self defence mechanism which is 200% up, that i dun allow anyone or anything to get into my heart, anything that could hurt me in any way.

its reali weird, how this guy wanted so much to be with me.. its gives me the creeps.. i onli know him from the streets! or is it juz in his blood, cos he is a french.. supposingly to be the romantic species in the world.. i do enjoyed his company, but no way i will let myself fall into the trap within juz a day.. i have so much fear, honestly, yes, i admit, i am now a coward in this matter of love.. no longer the gal who will juz fall over heels, one who will follow her heart, in this game of love.. its too dangerous, cos i've been hurt too many times that i know, following my heart in love would onli juz bring me harm. lessons learnt, too well learned.

closure, i need a proper closure.. i need a way to let all this out.. shucks.. this is reali not a good day.. reali felt lousy about myself..
poor frenchie.. im sorry

all these times, i usualy spend my wkends @ home, or either go to church or groceries shopping or shopping in the city centre.. now, finally. i am goin away for a short while.. although its goin to be onli a day trip but wel, i am stil qutie excited abt it cos we r goin to the more east side of Ireland, COUNTY MAYO.

Dublin, where i am now, we r more to the east of Ireland.. will b goin to mayo wif lyn, alan & glen. lyn is one of the philipinos frm my batch, and she was workin in spore b4 coming to here.. someone who loves to cook, and one who can chat wif me abt singapore food, hahahha..

waiting for them to come back frm work then we wil set off to mayo, alan wil b driving.. so it's going to b a long car ride, but hey i dun mind, i can enjoy the scenery, hopefully i dun fall asleep in the car which i usualy normally do... ;p

wait for my beautiful pics to b up ya!! ;D

check out Pussycat dolls new video!!!

Irish food, @ St stephen's shopping center.. the same plce wher Gloria and i had for lunch 1mth ago, this time round, we onli have the soup and dessert. the soup is big and filling.. and nice!! the 1st time we're @ the restaurant, we had the main dish and soup, and it was super filling.. i remembered that the guy who served us behind the counter.. he gave me so much of the mash potato.. i was surprised when i realised wat a pile of the mash he gave when we seated @ our table.. he didnt give as much to glo though.. although i did kinda complaining how come he gave me so much.. i finished everything that is on my plate.. ;p
anyway, if any of u folks r coming over here for holiday, i wil definitely bring u to this plce... ;) and the price, i would say its rather affordable.. 1 big bowl of soup is abt 4euro (S$8) and the dessert i have, was abt 3euro (S$6).. this time although a change of the server, but my share of dessert is stil bigger than glo's..

St Stephen's Shopping Center.. 2mths b4 and after.. with and without xmas decors. ;)

Things u would never see on the streets or bus in spore.. ;)
dear folks, i had passed through the 6weeks of adaptation period, yeah! now gotta wait for abt another 2wks, to get all the paper documents to get my full registration here. so this coming 2 wks will stil b under supervised and i am stil a pre-registered nurse. never mind abt all these terms.. the end msg is that i would be a registered nurse by the end of the yr. isn't tat great? its a fabulous xmas present for myself. ;)

last yr xmas, i gave a great present to a kid in mongolia by being his sponsor, through the World Vision. ;) tat's y i put up its link in my blog as wel. ;p

xmas xmas xams.. every yr i would b busy buying presents for my family, close frens, having parties.. decorating the house.. last 2 yrs, i had xmas dinner party organised for my whole family and all of us had a great time. i missed all the stuffs tat i do back in spore, how busy i am.. here, its relaxing.. nothing much for me to do, cos i actualy dun reali wanna do much as well.. prob its the weather.. juz wanna stay home, dun wanna go out much.. esp goin to the city center.. i dun wanna buy anything but stil would end up spending money buyin stuffs. so the best way is to stay home! but then, i would spend in buying groceries, and im enjoying it,
