the big black bug bit the big black bear and the big black bear bled badly

random updates since Friday!

been really busy since Friday due to a short choir performance yesterday evening. had soundcheck friday, rehearsal sat noon and performance sat evening! and yet another short performance at the esplanade concert hall this tuesday as part of a joint choral concert so it's gonna be pretty packed for Mon/Tues.

so anyways me and my lovely girlies are always hungry, so here's the latest traipse in search of food to satiate our stomachs. we finally ended up at Riciotti, this place near Clark Quay and the pizza there is heavenly! thin-crusted and delicious, with gooey sticky cheese that simple melts in the mouth. the pan of pizza lasted about 5 minutes on our table. no i'm not exaggerating, it was gone that fast! prosciutto e funghi is yums. 




followed by shared desserts and ice cream! nothing like dessert to win over a girl's heart. i feel all fuzzy and warm inside just thinking about dessert. taking pictures of food with the lx3 is so fun. i love the macro focus and depth of field!



oh oh oh and that reminds me. woon was saying something about how drinking cold water during meal times causes your body to not be able to digest the fat and it stays in your body system and does eeky things like clogging up your arteries and stuff!!?? nooooo is that why i have so much fats! from now on i resolve to never touch cold water during meal times anymore!

also, i got a self-retaining lens cap mod for my LX3! sorry ladies, my inner geek needs to express itself every now and then. paid $50 for a modded lens cap so that i dont have to keep on removing and replacing the lens cap on the LX3, and also so that the lens cap doesnt dangle on the string and get in the way. now i have a transformer megatron-esque LX3 with flaps that magically open to expose the camera lens, and also keep them protected when not in use! yay. i am loving my camera more and more with each day!


taken with my old canon ixus. lol


and the guy who sold me the mod asked me if i were working as an actress because i looked familiar. hmmm people always think i look familiar! i have a street face. i take it as a compliment though. since most actresses tend to be good-looking. LOL. let's neglect the minority of not-so-goodlooking ones.

during a period of idle intermission yesterday, there was a random discussion about singers like Pavarotti who's voices are not just a result of their hours of training, but came as a God-given gift, regardless be it their musical inclination, or body physique/structure which allowed them to sing the way they do. and how we can never imitate them because we're just born with a different body and a different voice. J said something that stuck in my head because it rings so true. and i think i am so guilty of this.

"Why try to be someone else you're not? You're never going to be that person, so you might as well be yourself, and be the best that you can."

i'm forever in envy of the smarter ones, the prettier ones, the skinnier ones, the more successful ones, the richer ones, the more talented ones. but however much i would like to emulate them or be them, that's all i'm ever gonna amount to, a person trying too hard to be somebody else she's not, always paling in comparison, always in the shadows of others.

we all need to learn how to embrace ourselves and be a better me, instead of trying so desperately to be what we think the world wants us to be. but how do we know for certain what's truly ourselves and what's not? the question frightens me :( i wish i had an answer.

just blew yet another $58 this morning on BC's collection! i am way way over the spending limit of the month. control!!! but the peacock dress was calling my name, just like the other eight items i bought this month :( woe is me.  

and on my way to cityhall yesterday, i got onto the train and right in front of me was a lady wearing the lavender halter top from Rach's collection (while i was in Viola's ted baker embellished frock) for a split second we glanced at each other's outfit with a flicker of recognition, before averting our eyes, embarrassedly looking away and minding our own business. she alighted before i did and i said a silent goodbye to a fellow online shopper. haha.


1. with the boy. dont know why he's giving such a funny disgruntled expression. hahaha he's gonna kill me if he sees this picture. and 2. taken with the lx3 pop-up flash on, i am experimenting with the flash output...

got woken up monstrously early because of my driving lesson at 8.15am. bahhh. slept at 2am, woke up at 5ish to send YZ off, got back to sleep around 6am and had to wake up at 7.30am. my brain cells are shrivelling up and dying from the lack of sleep. i mounted the kerb once, stalled the engine endless times, and did many dangerous maneuveres today. poor instructor had to grab the wheel from me several times ): and i still have many many 8.15am lessons ahead. shit.

am going to eat yummy home cooked pork porridge for breakfast now!




ps. am having a super bad complexion day. ahhh. red infected pimples and spots all over my face :( i feel like a monster.
pps. try saying the title of this blog entry, really really fast. hehehe. guaranteed tongue twister!!
