Friends: The Movie

Allow me to be happy, just for this one.

May it be rumour or fact, I am happy to learn that there might be Friends: The Movie. I can't get enough of it. I've been watching some episodes over, and over, and over...

It might be inspired by the Sex and the City: The Movie, this being a hit.


I was surprised of myself one time when answering a blogthing question if who is my favourite, I chose Joey. Really!? But I like him.


Beyond Words

At one point, I asked myself “why the Philippines”. I can’t avoid internalising, analysing and making prognosis on the disaster in the Philippines.

The deluge in Manila is really devastating.

Let’s pray that the storm is really over and those who are stranded at their homes are saved and all the victims have found refuge.

I Did Get Two of Them

Just for fun, I tried to do this after readin some health stuff like colon cleansers.

Your Dream Engagement Ring Has an Oval Diamond

An oval diamond is classic enough to reflect your femininity...

While being unique enough to show off that individual style you've cultivated

Your creative side will be delighted with the amount of twinkle your diamond showcases

And your ring's unique design will go well with all that artistic jewelry you've collected!

What's Your Dream Engagement Ring?

I'm bordering on using simple and unique jewellery sometimes so I guess this is part true and part not applicable to myself.


This Weekend

we didn't do much. I enrolled Jens on a swimming lesson yesterday morning. That pretty much occupied us. Afternoon was shopping time. I went to the shops alone to look for a crystal report book but didn't find any. I ordered one from QBD - it is cheaper there than in Angus and Robertson. I can't resist doing some retal therapy for myself and Mcj. I bought a pair of earrings and something else.

Then, made another trip to the shops later, this time with Jens for food shopping. He had two rides in The Wiggles ride. We had early dinner and I got away from Jens for an hour or so and sorted out our winter clothes to keep away and took out the cooler ones (it's getting warmer here and sometimes we need the ceiling fan turned on in the lounge). I realised, I have clothes that I don't wear anymore. It's a shame, it cost heaps to ship to the Philippines for my rellies. Yeah, I gave hand me downs to my cousins back then.

I did some washing today and while Jens is asleep, I made fish cakes for lunch and now I'm blogging away after eating.

It's a sunny day but cool - brought by a gusty wind sometimes.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, folks.

Brisbane River Festival

And so we went to Brisbane River Festival. It was first for Jens and I. We were pretty in time for the roulettes. It was the last time for the F1-11 to perform as they are being de-commissioned.

It was a record breaking 65,000 people flocked the river bank to see the fireworks and the planes’ exhibition.

We got there a bit early for the fireworks but we didn’t mind as the atmosphere was just so merry, it was fun just being an on-looker. Jens was a bit tired but it was just brushed off with lines like “I want to ride”, “I want to see changing lights”, etc. The ladies sitting next to us on the group were smitten. They had the turn their heads every few minutes to check on him.

The fireworks were spectacular. One can’t get enough. The buildings around the city have all come to life - maybe Panama City hotels look like them, also?

It was a long night but well spent.

I'm East

You Are East

Like many Asian cultures, you tend to be reserved and conservative. You don't believe that your internal emotional life is anyone's business.

People admire that you are together and responsible. You're the type of person who seems to be living a good life.

Sometimes you come across as a bit cold and humorless. You only show the easygoing side of yourself to people you know well.

You make a good judge of ethical issues. You see right and wrong easily, without letting emotion color your opinion.

In some ways, it has some truth in it.

What’s Up?

It’s been a while since I last updated this blog. I have no excuse. It’s just me. Haha.

Work has been as usual. Sometimes busy, sometimes not. I visited two customers – with colleagues this week. So far so good. I had lunch with my boss and another lady co-worker – catching up on our personal lives.

I’m getting confident in my driving though I haven’t driven as far as the shopping centre. I haven’t forgotten to turn my lights on at night for a couple of weeks now, so I think that’s a good sign.

Jens has been back to “school” after his sick leave. He had 2 ear bugs and the first medication only treated one bug and I wonder why it was taking so long to heal. A few weeks after he went back to day care, he’s starting to have symptoms of cold and flu. It’s like his been hugging every preschool furniture at school to get all the germs around.

We went to see the Brisbane River Festival last Saturday. That’s another story to tell. Just a recap – it was fun with a bang!
