My new toy - A Bosch dishwasher!

I knew there was no turning back when I was introduced to the dishwasher in the States. It's a little extravagant but it will save me plenty of time and arguments with hubs on who should do the dishes when things start to get busy again! Definitely a worthwhile investment! *grin*

Baby potion or poison

It has been a year since the stork delivered and taketh away. Nada since.
The parents are naturally getting [really] impatient. That strange looking liquid above, prepared specially by my MIL, is supposed to "warm" my body in preparation for incubation. Now if there is one reason for me to conceive quickly, this would be it. I don't think I can stand to consume one more drop of this horrible concoction. *retch* I can only hope that the stork would deliver sooner...*pls!*

An eventful week

I came back from a company retreat over the weekend feeling all charged up only to find Alfonso acting strangely. Exactly one year after Chewy had passed on. It is happening all over again. The abnormal eye movements, the loss of balance....We hope it is just an ear infection that will go away with the antibiotics. It has been a tiring past few days keeping a close eye on him and force-feeding his meds and liquid food. We have also padded his cage in preparation for the inevitable rolling. We can only hope that he will stay strong throughout...
Get well soon, my little one.

Earth to blogosphere. Roger.

I know I have been out of the radar for too long but I hope this transmission still reaches you! ;) So what's new?
A new career...
The contract has been sealed and I begin work in a couple of weeks. Friends describe my career move as a "brave one" but I know whatever the outcome, this transition will be a great learning experience and eye opener for me. There was no formal farewell from my previous dept. After all, I have been away for 1 1/2 years and half the office is made up of new staff who do not know who I am. But that said, I feel there is a lack of closure to this chapter of my [work] life and it kind of leaves a bitter aftertaste...But ah, such is life.
A new wardrobe...
The morph from slaving housewife to senior management means the need for a wardrobe overhaul! I have already burnt a huge hole in my pocket but I do believe this is necessary intervention. ;P
A new car...
Well, not quite. Just the certificate of entitlement for the car alone already cost around $30,000 SGD so you can imagine how crazy the prices for cars are over here. We have decided to settle for a second hand car that we managed to get at dealer price for a start. Perhaps one day, we will be able to afford that dream car of mine...

So that's that. Let the new chapter begin...:)

Just one of those days.

Woke up [really late] with an impending headache and a blanket of depression.
What's up with that? Sigh.

We had the contractor remove the hideous grilles yesterday and now finally, an unobstructed view of the blue sky and greenery! Amazing what that little change does for the soul! :)


It's the season for my favourite food of all times...Chinese dumplings aka Bak Chang!

Yums! :)

Jailhouse Bird

That's what I feel like in my very own home. We have agreed for our previous tenants to put up window grilles for the safety of their children. However, they look so awful and totally obstruct the lovely vista we have outside. Honestly, I can't stand to look at them a minute longer. Now, if hubby would hurry up and make an appointment with the contractor to have them removed already!

Attack of the Red Army!

Spot the little monsters if you can!

They are EVERYWHERE! Taking a dip in my water, jacuzzing in my kettle, feasting on my meals & leftovers, going on sugar high from all that candies or anything sweet and nipping me ever so often! And now they are even invading my MacBook! do I deal with them?! Any suggestions?!
