Happy new year, everyone!
There's such a lot of new year cards to send out, plus the new year resolutions and, of course, the bbqs and parties! XD
PS: The probability of you sticking to your resolution will be almost double if you tell someone else about it. (Some random article)
Just common sense, really. I mean, you'll stick to it, right, if you tell someone?
Now that i know there are guys who use their handphones to read my blog, i shall not use pink anymore( than i should). Leo!
I also have to learn how to cook singaporean food. Well.
My New year resolutions are...
hoho. Shan't say.
Countdown is today! Hope everyone will get his/her wish in the new year!
Bless you all and LOVE YOU GUYS!

Christmas is just over and we are all looking forward to New year! Not some of us though, cos of the first one and half month of jc...
Don't sweat it, there's still a few days left to play!
I came back from Kukup a few days back, and it was really fun! I have yet to upload pics, or manage to get people to send, so yea.
We played with firecrackers and those sparklers thing! You know the kind that you have to light the wick of, then you run away and watch the thing shoot up the sky.
It's really so beautiful...
All five of my family members went, with my father's friend's family, all six of them. And his elder sis and her husband, and another family, who are malaysians. So there're like nineteen of them. XD
Kukup is really hot! Even hotter than Singapore, which sounds impossible. Urgh
The sun is so scorching, then we had to walk this whole way in to our resort house. The tan marks on my feet cos of my slippers are worse than last time's. LOL
After resting for a while, we went to take a short boat ride, to this kelong. We walkd around taking pics, then this guy, who works there started to show us the different fishes. he held up this small shark, not sure what species and showed him to us.
I held the small shark! It's skin is sand-papery and cold. And the teeth was freaky.
Then there's the hairy crab, which he told us that if it was laid on it's back, it wouldn't move at all. It's also immobile during thunderstorms. (dunno true or not)
He gave me the crab to hold too, and then offered to turn the crab over. ON MY HAND. eep! Of course i declined politely. "What! NO! Take it back!"
He showed us the horseshoe crab too! It's blue-blooded. And looks like a mutant with eyes on it's shell.
We had a bbq that night. Which was quite good, lots of seafood, and we kept singing karaoke! All chinese songs, which i didn't know how to sing. Just anyhow sing.
Then Cynthia ran into the room shouting that my dad got a big fish while fishing at the back balcony. We all rushed to the back, then realised she lied to us! LOL. Evilness. And she has the face of an angel.
Then while i was standing there, my dad very expertly pulled the fishing line so fast back that it flew back up towards us.
Everyone screamed and ran off, then one of the girls standing on the chair beside my dad screamed bloody murder and jumped on me.
While i tried to gain balance, the fishing line, with the hook flew under one of my foot when i lifted it. So there i was, jumping on one foot, trying to get away from the hook, and with a kid of 30kg(?) clinging on me.
So i stepped on the hook and pricked my foot. So coincidental right? But don't worry bout tetanus, i got my shots. i think.
I keep away from fishing hooks and little kids now.
We set of the fireworks again at 4.30am. It's so that we can get the attention of the angels flying back up to heaven in the dawn and make a wish. LOL. Tingting's idea, which i think is very cool. :D
Then the whole bunch of us sang karaoke. It's a wonder we didn't get any complains from irate neighbours.
Okay, pictures next time! I am still weirdly hungover from movie screenings at 4.
I LOVE FORREST GUMP!

It's been so long since i updated. I"ve been working at my aunt's antique shop! Oh, and i must tell you all my phone is warped. I cannot receive any messages at all. So, call me, people, if you have anything to tell me, important or not. :D
It's very amusing working there. I get to see all kinds of people. There were these two korean women.
They were holding this cake mould thing and brandishing it around laughing. They were saying "tun-tun heyo" and "mori". which means "fat" and "head". Guess i'm not the only one with violent tendencies.
I said anyeong-haseyo(hello) to them in korean and they started to like, exclaim happily and smile a lot. They bought the cake mould thing, no doubt to whack some "fat head" later on. I said kamsa-hamnida (thank you) to them and they started the "oh my!" thing again. heehee. funny.
ps: they can't count singapore dollars properly. yay.
My sister was outside helping to choose and stick stuff on bookmarks for tourists. (only tourists do this) There was this group of thai students wanting to do their names. They have such...beautifully exotic names like "Virgil" and "Nikko" -both guys.
Then stayed till quite late. More people came around 5 plus. This bunch of tall guys came and started touching everything, yes everything in the shop. LOL.
This guy held up the God of Fortune statue in front of the cashier and said to his friend " Hey, look! This little guy is so cool!" oh my god, the poor statue must be so offended.
They took lots of pics with the swords in the shop. Guess they don't see swords in their country.
I asked them if they were from America, and the tall dude said yes. So i was talking to them, this guy and his friend, a black guy, both very cute. They're from new york!
So one of them, the shorter one( it's not nice to say black, right? he's brown) told me he wanted a souvenir for his brother.
I showed him this orange toad thing that you could play with by running this stick up it's back. The other guy was like," this is so cool!"
So i asked if he wanted to try it. "Yea! sure, this is so fascinating!" LOL. it's just a funny looking wooden frog.
So they played with it for a while and told me they found singapore very fun. He bought the frog. It's freaking overpriced, i tell you. But so is everything everywhere.
His friend got two chinese paintings. The rest were like, playing with the stuff in the shop. lol
They went out of the shop to play with this thing that would have water jumping up if you rub your hands on it. the shorter guy kept asking me to do it cos they couldn't succeed.
All their friends already went off and some were waiting for them but this guy, the taller one was so funny. He went " No, wait, i gotta get this to work, man! i can do this, wait!"
This couple of huge old guys came in at night. So cheerful. I said hello, welcome to them and they went "Hello!!" really loudly. All of them. happy vacation for them. :D
They stood by the swords and one of them said " think we could get that through the metal detectors?"
And they started highing and laughing to themselves. "NO, MAN, IT'S MY TOOTHPICK!" LOL
Gosh the people, who go in the shop. So amusing. heehee. okay i shall go off to work now.
Somehow i miss socialising with you guys. I must make some day free to go out. XD
i want long black socks and a ring.
