2004 Recap

2004 is quite an interesting year, here's a list of stuff:

- Solo travel through Sweden, Norway and London : a memorable & interesting trip indeed
- Landmark forum : another good experience
- This blog

- Quit my job, and still hunting
- Lost my digital camera to a pick-pocket
- My beloved computer crashed on me this Dec, that's why I'm typing away in the library now.

and the time limit is nearing... will list more later if I have. :)

Happy New Year 2005!

Hmm... I just noticed I have smileys on almost all of my posts here, informal emails, cards, notes... etc everywhere!

Guess I chat too much on the messenger. : p (Oops... here goes another one! Haha!)


Will you go to a party if you knew only the host? If you do attend, how will you feel?

I was in that situation tonight when I went to a birthday party, knew only the host well. Ok ...there's a few familiar faces whom I met for a few hours at the same function last year :P

Felt pretty awkward at first, shifting around drinking, stuffing my stomach and observing .. just being the quiet bee. It wouldn't be a fun night if I kept going like that, so by smiling and just taking the first step to say hi has opened up space for chatting and getting to know new friends.

I had a fun night! I bet I might only meet those peeps again next year... if I'm invited to another party... that is.

Last weekend, lent K. my precious 5 months old digicam to Bangkok, and it got pick-pocketed away...
Of course my first reactions was heartache and upset as it's my hard-earned money, and the 'old' me wanted to blame him for being careless.

But I can say that I felt powerful when I didn't react the way I would have. I let my blame and my side of story of what's happened go. What's happened is a fact, and it wouldn't change the situation around or make it better if I had throw a tantrum or not in talking terms.

And hey, I bet I'm gonna have a NEW digicam soon. ;-)

The Eternal Child

This is the first documentary book that I find interesting. It's a page-turner book by Oxford zoologist Clive Bromhall on human evolution.
His hypothesis of a single process of "infantising" is what made us human as we are today, from our body structure, emotions, the variety of human behaviours, homosexuality, intelligence and creativity.

I bet there are many theories on human evolution, but this one fascinates me. A recommended reading, especially for my gay friends. ;-)

Cincaluk Chicken

Inspiration: Tres' Crumbs and Betty Saw's recipe book

Borrowed the recipe book from the library, saw the recipe and it reminded me of Tres' excitement over lemongrass. ;-)

A novice cook that I am, decided to try it out since I haven't had cincaluk chicken before. And I've never really cooked all dishes in a meal from fresh ingredients, it normally includes some cans (non-ayurvedic that is :P).

Preparation and cooking time for cincaluk chicken, steamed fish and stir-fried french beans was 2 1/2 hours. Eating time was over in 30 minutes.

Stuffed and Satisfied. :D

Pet owners, Bellobox anyone?

I like the creative design. :)

Wincing at the idea of having to use the hand to pick the poo poo up.

I had a couple of upsets with someone recently because of my unfulfilled expectation of the person. Then I started to blame, become childishly rebellious, got moody, then pretended to enjoy myself when I was not. Such a bleh situation.

Now, I've realised that my feelings has nothing to do with anybody or anything. I'm the one who's in control to choose either to be happy or be sulky, so I got it over with.

I choose to be happy. :)

Last 20s

What am I doing in front of computer on the last day of my precious 20s? I should have been out having fun... instead I'm here reading up on blogging stuff: XML, RSS/Atom, etc. becoming more geeky. Oh well, what can I say, my glowing monitor is addictive and welcoming. ;-)

Hey big three O, here I come, jobless but blogful!

Blog Virgin

Have always wanted to have a blog, what has stopped me in my path before was my reasoning that I'm not a good writer, thus resulting in boring posts. I guess I wanna look good on my blog.

Today, I've decided to give up looking good, and I've committed to myself to have a blog before my birthday. So here I am.
