In the process of moving

If you have been reading my would have notice how badly the layout is. Yeah, everything is hay wired. Aligment all wrong, and there are double posts.. I guess it was my fault. Blogspot had some problems few weeks back...and i tried importing my blog to another blog at wordpress. Seems that the scripts and codes got messed up while doing that. Anyhow... i have created another new blog and is slowly trying to cut and paste my entries at the new blog. so..will redirect you guys when i offiically move to the new blog. *suffering from the flu bug*

argh... pests...

It is highly irritating and definitely get on my nerves when ever I am in a hurry or not in an 'entertaining ' or 'patronizing' mood that these 'overly friendly' so called financial planners try to stop me in my stride.
over friendly guy: "hello Miss, can spare me just a few mins to do this survey for me??" (bad english)
depending on my mood and how the person trys to get my attention, this is how i usually react
-totally ignore and walk on
-use my hands to stop him
Why this entry today? HUH!!! coz this is a record high.. i got stopped 5 times in a matter of few hours. I know this is their rice bowl..but really, how many insurance policies or invesment plans can one get?!
While waiting for my bus at the bus stop outside Emerald Somerset... 3 different women approached me. I have my earphones ..blasting my mp3s. Shook my head at the first lady, and later got pissed when the 2nd one approached me just simply treated her as transparent and least to say the 3rd one got similar cold treatment.
4th and 5th time were at Toa Payoh... *roll eyes*
Okay, even if i were to filled in the 'survey form', it is affirmative that I will be filling in a fake name and an even fake-ier phone no.
I know they have this 'never say die' 'postive' attidude. Therefore..if you are really not interested in listening to them sharing about the policies, the drawing of the time line, the telling you what will happen if u are jobless when u are 50 kinda stories.. you have to be firm when being approach. Wishy washy and hahahaha.. good luck.... you will end up having a 'nice chat' with them
Okay..enough..let's not get started on those time sharing 'surveys

E-leen or I-leen, I am still ME

Sometimes when I introduce myself to new friends, or when I am asked my name, some of these people would go..Oh! You have a song, "Come on Eileen". -_-"'''' Frankly, I really don't like that song. And the Eileen is pronounced as I-leen in the song. My Eileen is Eileen with the in E-leen Yeah, some friends tell me the so called correct pronunciation should be silent E *I-leen*. But since day one few decades ago,(when my aunt gave me this name) I have been called and answering to EEileen :P Sounds odd at times when some friends or doctors call me by I-leen. Of coz I still respond to that. It wasn't until 2 yrs ago that I had "Eileen" added to my IC. It wasn't in my birthcert then. Seems that my mum delibrately left it out. *shrugs* I dunno why either.

Wayang kulit @SAM are my wayang photos!!
Venue-Singapore Arts Museum *Glass Hall*
We were in the glass hall practicing and of coz there were vistors to the museum. Quite a lot of them were drawn to the glass hall by our playing. I felt like a fish coz they were all peering in thru the glass.. :P
*practicing during the day*
*start of the wayang!!* It was quite crowded intially. Hardly any room for me to stretch my legs hahaha. Most audience wouldn't stay for the whole performance and this one is no different. Nearly half of those people u see seated at the back left after act one. Kids of all ages *big kids too* were captivated by the colorful puppets and fighting scenes.
*Can you spot me??*
Concentrating on my playing :P *front of the screen*
*group photo* The puppet master is the one in the center--Mr Purbo Asmoro who's quite renowned in Java and msuican Pak Wakidi Relaxing after the performance :)
Feeling a void , coz performances have come to an end for now -_-"" It was fun once again doing wayang kulit. Down with a slight cough and sore throat. Will update more about the wayang with photos later . Time to rest.

---______--- ""

Gosh! Finally I am able to post. What is wrong with blogger. There has been some problem with the server and alot of bloggers weren't able to publish their entries nor access to the blogs. I am glad I didn't lost any of my entries. Maybe it's time to move .
*rAnT oF dE wEeK*
There is a disturbing trend among the kids and young people these days. (before i go on..i have to stress, i am young , but these young people in question are younger than me hahahah ) What I am referring to is the way some of these kids type. dO U rEali LikE tO rEaD pAsSaGes tYpEd In tIs mAnnEr? I get a major headache the min. i see such typing style. Some of them even used such short forms when writing school essays. *roll eyes* Another thing I noticed these days. Adding of 'de' (的) and 'le' at the end of the sentences. Of coz such sentences are used in the casual context. But I personally find it quite irritating. For eg ---> No, I am tired, not gonna join u guys le. Or -- I am going to bed le. Argh..first there is singlish..and now this? chinglish? (*___________*)'''''

*warning* The following post is a ranting entry. Do not proceed, I repeat, DO NOT proceed if you have no wish to 'hear' me complain wahahhaha. Instead, you can click Here for some cool and fun games. I am tired of unsolicited calls..just this few days alone I have received calls from a survery company (wanting to know about my views on certain advertisment), two banks trying to push me their credit cards, and some guy wanting to discuss my finanical situation. The banks are easy to deal with, hahaha, I start my 'script' before the card pusher goes on with their scripts. I tell them in a cordial manner that no thanks, i am unemployed or jobless, or not earning enough. And ta da! i got rid of the call. As for the insurance companies, it's abit tricky, coz those guys are trained in the thick skin department. They never take no for an answer. They 'die die ' must meet me for a 'chat' . Oh pls lah! Chat my foot. I hate to sit thru insurance talk. It's the same old stuff. The time line chart, how much we must save for old age, how much we have to prepare if we are lay off.. argh. And when asked who gave them my number, they will laugh it off..yeah..don't let me find out that YOU have been giving my number to some agent . These people will try to act as if they are your best friend, always friendly , always trying to accomodate to your timing. Blah! Ahyah, of coz i know they are just doing their job-helping us choose the rite kind of investment/insurance. Sometimes i dread going into pharmacies. There are 'dangers' lurking around. I just wanna browse around or just get want i need to get and out i go. Somehow somehwere, there will be this one sales lady trying to promote her slimming cream, her skincare, her hairt reatment etc. And hhahaha, it always seems that the sales ladies are the one that are in need of their own productS!!!!! hahahhha. GIVE ME A BREAK~~~!!! Enough of this rant. lalalallalallalal ------00ooo00-------

bring out the the green in me

I like green..clothes that is.. Was doing my once a week wardrobe cleanup..tada! presenting my green tops. I realised there were a few other more greenies hidden in my wardrobe after taking this photo. Haha..i actually thought I like black! I am sure i will aquire more greenies in the near future. Yes yes...have to admit I have no muse to blog for this weekend..hence all these 'bo liao' (meaningless, useless, crappy) entries.

shorts with heels?? -_-""

I just don't get it... perhaps many of you reading this now share the same view as me. Shorts...regardless of brand..length.. color etc.. is not suppose to go with heels. It may look alright on celebrities like Fann wong or Britney Spears,but i still believe that shorts for normal people like you and me should be wore with slippers or sports shoes :P Some ladies may think that it's okay to team heels and shorts together. However, I really frown upon that. It's the same as teaming stripped shirt with checkered pants. Wouldn't that look totally horrible and clashing? I have seen countless of such oddly dressed females on the streets. I am no fashion police nor someone who knows how to dress really well...but i still have some common sense to know what to wear and what not to wear . I still stand by my view that shorts should not be worn with high heels :P ----------00OO00---------- ps: i ripped the above from my old blog. hehehe :P

Needed something to smile

A friend cheered me up with this cute joke...hey friends.. no offence yeah? My friend who send me this is a Christian himself. I thought it was funny and decided to share :) Why Eve was created Top Ten Reasons Eve Was Created 10. God was worried that Adam would frequently become lost in the garden because he would not ask for directions. 9. God knew that one day Adam would require someone to locate and hand him the remote. 8. God knew Adam would never go out and buy himself a new fig leaf when his wore out and would therefore need Eve to buy one for him. 7. God knew Adam would never be able to make a doctor's, dentist, or haircut appointment for himself. 6. God knew Adam would never remember which night to put the garbage on the curb. 5. God knew if the world was to be populated, men would never be able to handle the pain and discomfort of childbearing. 4. As the Keeper of the Garden, Adam would never remember where he left his tools. 3. Apparently, Adam needed someone to blame his troubles on when God caught him hiding in the garden. 2. As the Bible says, It is not good for man to be alone! And the #1 reason why God created Eve... 1. When God finished the creation of Adam, He stepped back, scratched his head, and said, "I can do better than that!"
