I might sound a little crazy but I am seriously thinking about getting a bicycle to cycle to church on the weekend and make my weekend NON-DRIVING days. This is to help to reduce pollution and do a part to save and make our earth a better place to stay.

Last Saturday was my first day teaching in a Children Art School. My class started from 9am till 1pm. It was actually 2 classes which consist of 6-7 students in one class. And their age ranged from 3 to 12 years old.
So during my 2nd class, I was warned by the teachers that it was going to be very challenging as the kids in that class were harder to control. True enough, they were walking around and chatting away. So this little boy whose age around 5 were looking at another girl who was around 4 yrs old drawing. Being 4, she couldn't colour very well as she was still young. And he passed a remark which totally shocked me.
"Teacher Dora, look at her. She totally put Crayon to Shame. She is not doing it right. This is called Crayon Shame!"
I didn't know how to react when I heard that. Don't know whether to laugh or what. But looking at them acting like little adults, I just nodded and smile. Kids these days are simply amazing. I am learning everyday to be patience with people around and it will be a great test to handle difficult kids. I just pray for a patience heart and be gracious to them.
Am looking forward to my next class with them. :)

Last night at Cell Group, our cell leader asked us to share a significant thing or memorable event that our mom had done for us. For a moment, I couldn't think of anything as everything was significant and memorable for me. My mom has been a remarkable and sacrificial person who is forever generous to others and loving to all of us.
But there was something which I would like to share and credit to her. For the longest time, my house in KL has been in a mess. And if discovery channel would wanna cover a topic of Hoarder, I can be qualified as one. Hahahaha. I am a person who like to keep stuff and store everything including wrappers from Christmas after Christmas. Everything seems to have a sentimental value for me.
So about a few months ago, my mom came to visit me. She decided to stay a bit longer about a week and at first she wanted to find a bigger house for me but later she decided to do a "SLIGHT" transformation to my place. So she so called "IMPRISONMENT" herself in my house for almost 4 days. And she also bought some furnitures and racks for my room. TO MY SURPRISE, she transformed my place into a beautiful, well organised and comfortable sanctuary. Furthermore, she also found a part-time cleaner for me to engage to clean my place once a week. Even though there are many stuff that I still couldn't find them today, I am very grateful to my mom. She is truly a SUPERMOM and gifted interior designer. Her act of service truly touched my heart and till today I couldn't thank her enough.
I don't often paint but this July I am gonna surprise her with a nice huge painting. And theme shall be "HER FAVOURITE PERSON" heheheh. ;)

Lately, I have been taking this Royal Jelly Drink. Its very convenient and I can feel the difference within days. First, I could sleep better, then I didn't cough as much, I felt that my pimple scars have been lighten, eye bags reduced and best of all my complexion skin seems to be tighten. Believe or not but I just felt the difference and I couldn't wait to tell the world about this. For more information of what Royal Jelly can benefit us...here's the link:

I realised that lately my blog has been an interest to many Singaporean. Hahahaha~! And the funny part was all these people were Window users when my family and friends are mostly Mac users. So who are u? Are u a friend? Family? Or just some BUSY BODY. Anyway, you are welcome to read whatever that was written here (since its sort of PUBLIC PROPERTY Hahaha) but if its going to hurt you in one way or another, then my advice is-STOP READING. This is a place where i VENT out my anger, thoughts and things around me. I have nothing against anybody. My conscious is clear and if you want to use my blog entry as a subject to make yourself miserable, all i can say is I AM NOT accountable for it. :)Take care and May God bless you always, my mystery readers.

2002 was the year that we met. He was the first guy that taught me about music, football and punk culture.
We met at a TV shoot for the Kancil Award intro Video. The first time we met, we had some kind of connection simply because he grew up in Singapore. We chat and chat and chat from 6am till the next morning 4am…
It was all mutual and we like each other. The very next day, he left and flew to Shanghai.
And then he came back to Singapore about a week or 2 later and I decided to drive over to meet him there. It was then we realized that we actually like each other very much. And couldn’t stop talking and sharing our thoughts. After that encounter, there was just a series of endless phone calls and email. He was very lonely in Shanghai and was in total culture shock. He couldn’t speak mandarin very well either. I decided to pay him a visit. In fact, I was one of the few that first to visit him there. I made him a home to stay and even cooked his meal. Bought a couple of stuff in order to make it more like a home for him. I even thought of staying there for good. But he realized that he didn’t want to take our friendship to the next level and so I left Shanghai with a broken heart.
For years, this friend has influenced me so much. From Music choice to football team to even the food that I am eating today, everything was under the good influence of him. I must acknowledge that every shit he recommended was really good stuff and I still love them today. From U2, Blur, Radiohead …you name it, I love them all.. Over the years our friendship was purely platonic. He will make a point to meet me every trip back to KL and get me all the good stuff from Shanghai simply because he was grateful that I had helped him along the way with all the advices. He had relationship after another relationship but he still kept our friendship. When I was down, he was one of those few that I feel like calling to make myself feel better. I do love him dearly but not in the lustful way. He was and still is my best friend.
Today is his birthday. We don’t talk anymore simply because I couldn’t leave myself at where I am to join him in Shanghai. He was very disappointed. The last message he wrote to me on MSN was an angry one. He said I should have the guts to tell him that I couldn’t make it.
I text him today…I just wished him. For a minute, I was so hungry for the U2’s Achtung Baby Album. I dug out my box of memories and found something that he did for me when we first met. It was where we first got our friendship started.
Here’s my message to him:
“Ooi! (That’s what he usually like to call me), Happy birthday again! I am sorry and I miss you very much, my friend. It hurt me so much that till today when I think about the fact that now you are ignoring me totally. I found this DVD cover that you drew for me. Not the best art piece but definitely the only few that is drawn specially for me from a guy. Truly I must say, when I read that you said I was your best friend, I feel like packing everything and be there for you now at this very moment. But I am so sorry, I can’t. I hope that you can understand and forgive me. It’s your birthday and I wish you happy always. Cheers to our 10 years of friendship and I have never love you any less”
