Happy New Year 2010

Dearest readers,

Happy New Year 2010!!!

Some flowers to welcome the new year

Why not write a few words on the last day of 2009?

2009 has been great, and the highlights are many. Now, 2010 beckons and “Bring on the challenges!!”.

One thing I wish to work hard upon for 2010 is to spend more time with my friends. Life has a way of blowing you away with all the many different things that come across, but I neglected my friends this past year. So we kinda drifted apart. But I want this to change. So bring on the girls parties, outings and shopping treks!!! I need to spend time with my gurls… :p Miss you…

Well, Christmas just went by. It was happily spent with the family. And then I was on holidays from work!!! Hourray!! And I have been relaxing amidst new year chores, shopping and family dinners (and wines!).

My Christmas Tree

I gifted myself books by Lauren Weisberger (The Devil wears Prada, Everyone Worth Knowing, Chasing Harry Winston) for Christmas and thus managed to enjoy sweet reading moments. I also had a very nice dinner yesterday to celebrate a very special anniversary. Had a great time with Kervin.

All in all, the past week has been very satisfactory – a prelude to starting the new year. Further celebrations are on the way… what with le reveillon, and then New Year festivities and family fun, before resuming work on Monday.

So this is it then… Happy New Year to you all folks. Enjoy yourselves! And hoping from the bottom of my heart that the New Year brings you lots of love, happiness and success.

Take care.

And remember, do not drink and drive.



P.S the pics are some random ones I took this morning…

A Saturday at home after a long long time

Today I spent my Saturday at home after a very loooonnnng time…

Well lately I had classes on Sat mornings, and in the afternoons Kervin and I would spend quality time together…

Kervin is away this weekend, and with the hols I found myself with a Saturday at hand. I had thought I would go shopping earlier, but on waking up late this morning I realised that it’s been a long time I am at home on a Saturday and decided instead to stay at home and look into the several chores I had in mind.

So I cleaned up my room, and other rooms in the house. Had a nice long chat with my brother. Helped my mum clean up the kitchen shelves. Slept. And was currently surfing on the net when I decided to post on my blog.

All in all, it was a nice Saturday. Specially after yesterday’s EOY dinner at Sunset Garden, though it was a day spent cleaning and sleeping. I believe it was a day well spent. And it is not over yet. I am thinking of spending the next couple of hours or so gift wrapping. And maybe end the day with a book.

I also came to the conclusion that I have become a mail-checking fanatic (I think it’s a bad habit I picked up at work)! I boot up my laptop earlier, with the aim of checking my mail, and ended up spending time on the net… Well, at least I got to set up download of “Love Actually”, a romantic comedy which I also thought I would be viewing tonight (Any of you have watched the film? I have read some of the reviews and it seems like a nice one. It was released in 2003.). But I think it willl be difficult to cram the film in tonight. Unless I forego the book and watch the film instead… Hmmmm…

Well, am off now to dinner then gift wrapping… Yeah! Do any of you know how to make bows? Ribbon bows to decorate a gift with? I know how to do some simple ones like the one below (The pic is a bit blurred I’m afraid), but have been trying lately some new ones like the puffy bow which is explained here . But I haven’t been successful with it yet.

Kevina's ribbon bow

Do any of you have some simple guidelines to making great ribbon bows? Maybe, I could then enhance the gift opening experience for my gift receivers… 🙂

So long friends.

Take Care

Engineering BFs r best ?!

Got this in a mail from a friend…

Very controversial but very true…

Note: Am nt hinting to anybody abt anything nor am i denigrating anybody

Engineer Boyfriends are the best:

1: Secure lifestyle

An engineer boyfriend can provide you with a secure lifestyle. At 27 years old, an engineer probably has a respectable, stable job that gives him high income to own a car, invest, have a comfortable life, and get married and buy a house too. Law graduates are still working as a lowly apprentice in law firm, most management graduates have just failed on their first business plan, the arts graduate is still looking for a job, and the medical school graduate is still living in a hospital.

2: Unmatchable industriousness

An engineer boyfriend will dedicate an unimaginable amount of his time and effort to understand you. Engineers strain really really hard to understand their work. You can believe that they will try really really hard to understand women too, just like how they understand their work, once they believe that you are the one. So even if they don’t understand you initially, they will keep on trying. Even if they still do not understand, they will figure out the correct method to keep you happy ( e.g. buy diamond ring = 1 week’s worth of happiness.) And once they find out the secret formula, they will just keep on repeating it so that the desired results appear. Unlike the Lawyer who will argue with you, the Management graduate who will try to control your spending, the Arts graduate who will ‘change major’, and the medical school graduate who will operate on you. And you know what, it’s really so easy to make engineers believe that you are the ‘one’.

Say that you like one of their projects and they will be hooked to you forever.

3: An engineer boyfriend will never betray your trust.

Let me first tell you what is wrong with the rest of the others – the lawyers will lie about everything, management graduates will cheat your money, the arts graduate will flirt, and you probably just look like another cadaver to the medical school graduate. Your engineer boyfriend is either too busy to have an affair, and even if he does, he is too dumb to lie to you about that.

Hence, an engineer is the most secure boyfriend that you will ever find – rich enough, will keep on trying to understand and please you, has no time for affairs, and too dumb to lie to you.

Conclusion: Engineerz rule !

My opinion:

Point 1 is true. Engineers are secure in this way.

Point 2: Am not too sure abt that bit concerning their ability to understand girls… bt well…

Point 3: I completely disagree with the fact tht he may be dumb koz if he wre, he wouldnt be an engineer in the first place… N well unfaithfulness in a relationship owes to many a reason..

Now let us find ur views on the above…


Note: Am nt hinting to anybody abt anything nor am i denigrating anybody. This is a joke.. so hve a laugh. Nothing mre, nothing less…
