REPORT ON THE YEAR 2006
MERRY MARRIAGES - had some friends who got married/ engaged this year. Remy, my munchie monkey supervisor, was engaged on the very first day of this year, wootx. then on 25 nov, i attended my J.D. Power DP manager, Andrew's weddin' ceremony! this was the very first time that i received a weddin' invitation & attended with my friends! great experience. to the juz-marrieds - congratulations & bless you all!
HAPPENIN' EVENTS - since this year was my last semester in school, i participated in some really COOL activities! hoho. first was the NUS centennial charity car rally, where i had the chance to hold & carry a bullfrog & take a ride on the thrillin' g-max (WHEW!), haha. i had my first clubbin' experience too, on 4 may at MOS with my colleagues from munchie monkey. oh well, it was CRAZY, but i would say - clubbin' is not my cup of tea! oops. 20 may, watched my first musical - man of letters with Sharon! not bad! 7 jun, i fell ill!!! i haven't fallen sick for YEARS. this was one of the rare times that i actually had to visit a doctor, take medicine & be off from work, sianx! not exactly an "exciting" event. 24 jun, watched LIN JUN JIE's concert at the singapore indoor stadium! this was made possible by Seok Chuan, who proudly sponsored my ticket! enjoyed it totally! JJ ROCKS! on 12 aug, Rebecca & i went esplanade to watch the fireworks by france & boy, it was fantastic! how i wish i could watch one again. 3 sep, had a photoshoot at a studio! hoho, it was mainly for my graduation shoots & with my family! also in september, i took a ride in a mini cooper, driven by Yongmin! hoho. felt good to be in a car with the wind blowin' above you! 6 oct, had a company event! employees from J.D.

(wow, quite a HAPPENIN' 2006?)
SPORTS, WOW! - quite an active year! did a one-star canoein' course in feb! also completed a beginner's windsurfin' course in mar! windsurfin' was SO MUCH tougher than canoein'! had so many blue-black marks after the windsurfin' course lo! 19 mar, went BLADIN' for the first time! but i juz kept fallin', haha. from 9 may to 11 may this year, i was at NUS sea sports camp! it was my best camp ever, to be able to try all kinds of sea sports - windsurfin', wake-boardin', kayakin', life-guard skills and lots more! had so much fun out in the sun & the sea!

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE 21 - caught my first R21 movie in the theatres durin' feb, brokeback mountain! & it bored me to death, muahaha. hopefully there'll be better R21 movies in future, haha!

CHALETS-OH-CHALETS! - 2006 was really a year of chalets! haha, had so many of them! first was 3 apr, spageddies' chalet @ aranda country club - one of the biggest chalet i've ever been to. 12 may-14 may, munchie monkey's chalet! had a really crazy time with the monkeys, hoho. it was kidda like a farewell for those graduatin' too. 22 jul-23 jul, my department's (DP) chalet! it was a farewell chalet for Anvia, enjoyed it a whole lot! the most-fun bbq ever, heex. oct 27-oct 29, Rebecca's 21st birthday chalet!!! it was together with the halloween theme, which made me dress up as a PUMPKIN! wahaha. even went escape for some rides! heex. =)
WORK - finally a full-time job! 20 apr, went for my first interview with J.D. Power (this was even before my exams ended!). then on 3 may, i was a offered a position at the company, WEE! & on 22 may, i started my first day of work with my buddy, Yongmin! really glad i have a friend who's in this new environment with me, heex. so far, this full-time job's been GOOD! i really, really love the people there, everyone's so nice & fun. i'm even closer to my colleagues than people in school! it's really not easy survivin' the first few months, cos the learnin' curve is freakin' steep. hope to do better! havin' a full-time job doesn't mean i said bye-bye to my part-time job! i am STILL workin' part-time at spageddies @ paragon now, haha. (i know this is nuts.)
AMAZIN' ACCOMPLISHMENTS! - spageddies launched the best emplyee of the month award durin' may this year, & i was the first one to receive it! wahaha. on top of the certificate, i had $100 voucher from tangs! this award, i dedicate it to snoopy place, the place where i've learnt the most (not juz waitressin' skills, but also human relations, outlook towards life, etc.). i still miss life back then, but, i've learnt to move on. 8 may, called in to UFM 100.3fm & sang lin jun jie - yi qian nian yi hou on air for a contest. the listeners then sms-ed to vote who sang the best among a few other contestants, & i received the most no. of votes! wahaha. so i won for myself a pair of tickets to catch a musical! hoho. another accomplishment was - i finished the da vinci code novel within juz a couple of days' time, great read! 8 jul, I'VE GRADUATED! this is incredible, cos i've made it through 17 years of education! wootx. the bachelor of science degree is MINE! 17 nov, my first solo public performance, haha. it was the day of my company's dinner & dance, & i was sabo-ed to go up to the stage & SING! gosh. but i sang a relatively easy number - ah mei - jie tuo! even shared the top prize (wine-opener + $80 cash voucher) with Gerald! hoho.
TRAVEL - i've never travelled so much & so far in my life! previously, i've only been to JB a few times with my family & relatives. the furthest was to genting highland with my family & relatives when i was only 10, & that was only for 3 days? but this year, the year 2006, i've travelled twice!!! 5 aug-11 aug, a really cool trip to tokyo with juz my friends - Sharon & Yih Hong! & could you believe, this bein' my FIRST time on an aeroplane, i took it all alone (even had a transit at bangkok)? it was a really memorable trip, & parts of it even excitin', haha. 23 dec-25 dec, missed the christmas in singapore & went over to bangkok for a shoppin' trip with my family! it was a great trip too, though way too short! didn't have enough of it! still, it was really fun! hope to travel even more next year!
lookin' forward to 2007!
what i did durin' this last day of 2006? went to meet Wei Wei & Tow Liang in the afternoon had a late lunch at shih lin taiwan snacks @ the cathay then watched death note 2: the last name! i didn't catch part 1, but thanks to a brief summary by Wei Wei & Tow Liang, i could understand most of the show still! very interestin' storyline, but felt certain parts weren't necessary cos it ended bein' too draggy!
rushed down to expo to meet Vivi, Ah Du & gang joined in their church's countdown party, hoho it was a BLAST loud music, loads of people, whew. got home at 2am!
happy new year everyone be sure to make 2007 a great year for yourself!

(even though the room was really big!) it has great furnishings too explored our rooms a little before heading out again
we took a short walk to the skytrain station & took the train to mo chit, where chatuchak weekend market is located! it was then endless shoppin' in the maze of shops, whew! bought so many japalang! haha

we arrived at the menam river! the weather was sunny, but the wind was so chilly! brrr. we boarded a boat & cruised down the river the guide introduced to us the various sites in bangkok on the riverside, including a hospital that does sex-transformin' surgeries for people at a VERY cheap rate! we also saw some floatin' markets, & oh my, they were such pushy sellers we then stopped by the famous wat arun temple - amazin' architecture my sister & i even dressed up in their thai costumes & did some poses for a photoshoot! wahaha we then took a coach again, to highland bee farm center where a man explained to us the goodness of honey & bee pollen
haha we left the place & went to the four-faced buddha at the erawan shrine then continued our shoppin' spree at a new shoppin' mall, the big C, platinum wholesale mall, the street shops & more! settled for a late lunch at a thai restaurant, where we were served by a transsexual! there were so many gays + trans in bangkok really, i muz say our late dinner was at the teochew shark's fin restaurant juz beside our hotel - food was excellent! my sister & i then went to a thai massage house in our hotel for a full-body, 2hr massage, WOO~ sometimes it was ticklish & at other times, it almost killed me haha, but it was shiok!
Day3 (25 Dec):: merry christmas!!! we got up at 7am again for our breakfast buffet, mmm~ we wanted to go somewhere to shop but realised it was too early in the mornin' & none of the shops were opened so we went back to our beds to take a nap till 945am, hoho we headed to platinum wholesale mall to do a last-minute shoppin' then had a quick lunch at kfc got back to our rooms to pack up a coach came to fetch us to the airport at 130pm we arrived at bangkok international airport at 230pm where we checked-in finally met up with fifth uncle's family there we were supposed to be travellin' around together but since our hotels were different, even our flights were different we decided to juz go on separate ways

the 3 siao cha bo fightin' their way,hand-in-hand, to the finishin' line! WOOTX!

i think my senior manager almost fainted when she came to office today cos so many things happened yesterday when she was away! =xX
kidda fed-up with the claims policies my company has it's ok! i have my way! *hiakx*
i like the book bec is readin' right now "don't sweat the small stuff - and it's all small stuff" very meaningful!!! ways to stay sane in this insane world, haha i have some life mottos that i live with too it may not be easy to believe in them sometimes but i'll still try =)
- 船到桥头自然直 (have this deep-seated faith that, somehow, things will work out) - 别把得失看得太重 (losin' & gainin' are not everythin' in life, especially the tangible stuff!) - 人之初 性本善 (try to see the good in others! at the same time, try not to make lives difficult for others) - 只想简简单单的生活 (keep life simple.) - appreciate every little single thing in life - whoever, whatever angers you, conquers you
step up has become one of my all-time favourite movies! if you haven't watched it, i muz say - WHAT A WASTE! it's ok, i'm definitely gonna get the VCD/DVD get it from me! heex.
what an unlucky start to the day! i left my house rather early for work so i took the red line to work (it takes longer than the green, but at least there'll be seats!) BUT! when my train reached marsiling, there was an announcement:: "due to an accident at yishun, the train service will be delayed for 55 minutes." what?! 55 MINUTES?!? -.-zZz i ended up takin' the opposite red line back to cck & continued to jurong east to take the green line -.-zZz really don't get it why are there so many people jumpin' onto the tracks to get themselves killed? not only they get themselves killed in a very ugly manner, not only they hurt their family members, they disrupted train services which could affect hundreds of people! haiyo.
the suay-ness continued.. not a smooth day at work sighx.
went to meet Wei Wei & Keith at sengkang we wanted to go sakae sushi @ compasspoint for dinner but after queue-ing for some time, we had a change of plans! we went back with Keith for him to get his dad's car then he drove us to lido @ shaw house to catch a movie! & guess what show we watched? STEP UP! wahaha, yes yes, my second time, hoho & it still rocked as much as the first time =)
but the movie got Wei Wei into a chiongster mood we were blastin' boomin' hip-hop music inside the car hahah had a late dinner (supper?) at crossroads cafe @ marriott hotel woah. the food was good!
the yummy prawn caesar salad! look at the no. of prawns!
Keith gave us a lift home thanks thanks, Keith-the-Man! wahaha.

rise & shine! got up at 4am all by myself! =) had a hard time sleepin' so early (10pm!) last night took a cab down to cck stadium & it was frustratin' wait at the stadium! the bus was already there when i reached (at 440am) but it was already full so i had to wait for the next one, which came only at 520am! then what's the point of buyin' the 5am ticket? argh. there were LOTS of people boardin' from cck stadiumlo
look at the queue early this mornin'! it stretched all the way till the traffic lights!
anyway, i reached the padang very much on time & met-up with Vivi & Seok Chuan! haha, we were all excited about the race, haha we deposited our bags then did some warm-ups before proceedin' to the start line gosh, from far, all of us looked like ants! so many of us!
630am:: the race started! it was really hard to run durin' the first few metres cos you juz kept bumpin' into people we paced ourselves really steadily for the first few clicks it started gettin' rather agonizin' for me at the 8km mark struggled to jog abit more to reach the 10km mark then i started walkin' whew, my legs ached like crazy lo the next 5km was abit of joggin', but mostly walkin' the 17km to 20km was really walkin' couldn't even walk properly anymore, haha made a 100m dash to the finishin' line WE DID IT!!! =) (but err, in more than 4 hours? ha, who cares! RUN YOUR OWN RACE! bleahx.)
it really wasn't easy so much physical power required & even more mental strength needed really kowtow to those full-marathon runners - that's extreme madness! i don't even dare to try half-marathon anymore at least 10km is still achievable oh well, at least it's been quite an experience! =)
our half-marathon medals! WEE! =D
went for lunch at cafe cartel @ raffles city BUT WE WAITED AN HOUR FOR OUR MAINS TO BE SERVED!!! 1) they couldn't manage the crowd 2) they were turnin'-over from breakfast to lunch we were all famished! & when my carbonara finally came i gobbled down in juz a few minutes! haha
took a cab down to expo together with Vivi & Mei Shi attended their church service then went for dinner (food again?) at burger king @ changi airport with Vivi, ah du, Yiling then it was home sweet home! to heal my achin' limps -.-zZz
it's DECEMBER! wootx. christmas is round the corner!!! jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way~
actually, my favourite christmas song is - last christmas, i gave you my heart but the very next day, you gave it away this year, to save me from tears, i give it to someone special~
we had our SECOND department dinner (the first was quite a few months back!) proudly organised by Erwin, haha we had it at marche @ suntec city & as usual, i still had cheese sausage + rosti heex. we then walked to marina square where we had japanese desserts at azabu sabo everyone turned up except Syam & Juvina not a bad one!
