all this while my supervisor was scolding me about the missing money. fuck.

okay, i finally managed to calm myself down enough so that my hands would stop shaking. zua yao is a nerve wrecking experience man! i was so stressed up and tense i think my nervous system was running on an overload. freaky. lucky there was chinleng to help me out with the typing of medication, and the patients were nice enough.

and then i met ellen at dairy queen! chatted with her for a full ___ min (cant rem!) until i got SO DARN excited about meeting her i was flailing my hands about and accidentally flipped the nachos she was holding. damn shit. feel bad for littering. bah. anyway then went to return books.. take bus.. and saw jonny. it was so awkward! like i was sitting next to him at the bus stop and we just didnt talk. a few times i really wanted to like "eh, jonny rite?" but resisted. anyway i was tired. but after i got on the bus i was like phew cuz tracy turned up and she even waved at me when i was on the bus.. haha. i really shld open my mouth and talk to him. ive known who he is since sec2/3 yet i still have not opened my mouth.

DISCLAIMER: Article from!

"Why aren't you married?" After hearing that question, you will pause, smile sagaciously (I love that word), and give one of the following:

1. In the beginning, there were no stairmasters or low-fat-high-fiber muffins, and so people lived to only about 40-something. Maximum.

Meaning? The pressure was on to get married before age 25. However, today, thanks to medical advances (and the fine line of SnackWell products) we can all hope to live to age 80. Easy.

Meaning? Even if we get married at age 40, that's still 35, 45, even 55 years to be with a mate. Plenty of time to be married. And divorced. What's the hurry?

2. Married people are not necessarily better catches simply because they were caught. I mean, have you taken a look at some of the married people out there? Hitler got married. Frankenstein got married. Linda Tripp got married. Obviously married people are not superior people.

3. Meanwhile, look at some of our cool single role models:

Catwoman: single.
Buddha: single.
Aphrodite: single.
The Lone Ranger. Actually, all superheroes are single: Superman, Wonder Woman, Dudley Do-Right, etc.

4. Then there's The Ultimate Superhero -- God. Also single. And God is even a single-parent household.

5. It's easy to become married. 2.3 million people do it a year. If you want to pressure me to become something, hey, why not pick something a little more challenging? Like an astrophysicist.

i just love this article!! teehee!

According to, the top 10 turn offs for men are...

1. Wearing too much make up
Ok, acceptable, no one wants to date a trannie lookalike.

2. Picking at food
Hmm but isnt it inevitable for girls to complain of calories? shit i think im guilty of this one.

3. Bitter backbiting
No i'm not some obsessed super feminist. of COURSE i wont just blurt "all guys are bastards" in front of the guy that i like. but then again i have the tendency to do that, oops.

4. The EX factor
Not much kick about this one.

5. G-strings (this one's interesting)
"Believe it or not, ladies, men aren't into G-strings (not to be confused with thongs!). Don't wear one if you think there's even the remotest possibility that you're going to be removing your trousers at any point in the evening. Try to remember to wear some damn sexy knickers – think slinky, silky and saucy. They may be convenient, but G-strings are (according to our blokes) a BIG no-no. Just not sexy. At all."

6. Armpit stubble
I need a new shaver.

7. Teddy bears
"Stuffed toys adorning the bedroom, 'hanging out' in the back seat of your car or dangling from the rear-view mirror are an instant turn-off. What self-respecting bloke wants to get down and dirty amongst a whole family of Cabbage Patch Kids?"
OOPS major oops.

8. Extreme drunkenness
Haha i would really wanna try to get damn drunk one day. until i lose my sense of being/balance. and then um fling myself onto some guy. heehee.

9. The muffin
"You know that bit of flab that hangs over the top of your low-rise jeans, creating a kind of cupcake effect? Apparently, it's not a bad thing that we have it... guys love our soft and slightly fatty bits. But if you're wearing a tiny crop top so that that particular area is accentuated, it's not good. Cover your muffin!"
Haha oops i know im supposed to be love muffins -rolls eyes- but hopefully i can de-muffinise soon!!

10. Bunny boiler talk.
haha im sure that this (hopefully) doesnt apply to any of the ppl reading this. i mean. talking abt kids names and schools?! we only do that with our girlfriends man.

"All foods have some calories... Negative calorie foods are foods, which use more calories to digest than the calories the food actually contain!"

"...Typically, a 25 calorie piece of broccoli requires 80 calories to digest, then you've burnt an additional 55 calories from the body fat! Thus, the more you eat, the more you lose weight!"

"...You can now eat a lot of negative calorie foods to lose that extra fat and to become slim naturally. Some of these natural foods are asparagus, apple, beet berries, broccoli, cabbage, carrot, cauliflower, celery, chili, cucumber, garlic, lettuce, grapefruit, lemon ,mango ,onion ,orange ,papaya, pineapple, spinach, turnip, zucchini, etc."

Bao, let this be your new favourite food list :)

The aviator was quite nice! Though i admit to dozing off a few times.. but i almost always woke up. cept for the time when leo flew the hercules and i dozed off dreaming that i had appointments to book and medicine to zhua. argh. work has really seeped into my subconscious.

just chased my dad off the comp and frankly i do not care! haha. finally i am able to use uninterrupted internet. the wireless thing works but keeps disconnecting, its so frustrating! wanna scold vulgarity also cannot.

and i dont know what came over me but i decided to feel healthy. after last nights pigging out session (see below) i decided to swim at 6pm today. 10x3, total 30 laps not bad lah. after that my ass hurt frm all that swimming. h n f is having a bbq at my hse today.. actually just at the bbq pits at my house lah. with fel and all..

Oh yes. guilty pleasures..
1. crystal jade - some tang yuan with black sesame, century egg porridge and yun tun/jiao zi or whatever its called
2. first time eating kuey chap. and also ate chai dao kuey (not first time la!). drink: barley.
3. had a triple decker cheesecake at coffee bean. drink: skimmed milk.
4. had tonnes of water, plus a mocha spin at spinelli's.

I think thats all.

Ten Foods Not To Eat!

1. French Fries

Don't be reassured by the fact that McDonald's is changing its cooking oil. French fries are still starchy white potatoes cooked in hot fat and flavored with chemicals and sugar. Possibly the worst snack food on the planet.

2. Donuts

Fried bread. Need I say more? And if that wasn't bad enough, add a sugary cream filling and a glaze of more sugar on top. Any questions?

3. Chips (Potato or Corn)

These are really just a packaged version of French fries (see #1). However, you can do damage control on this one by switching to baked blue corn chips, available in health food stores. It's still not real food, but it beats the 7-Eleven version any day.

4. Soda

And sorry, this includes the diet kind. Absolutely nothing of any value here, and a whole lot of chemicals to boot.

5. Cupcakes and Snack Cakes

The creamy filling is fake whipped cream, and the rest of it is sugar, flour and flavoring. You've gotta be kidding.

6. Candy Bars

You might squeeze a gram or two of protein out of the nuts in some of them, but by and large they're a sugar orgy and a nutrition nightmare. Again, you can move slightly up the food chain by switching to one of the "energy" bars. Most are just candy bars disguised as health food but they often have 1/3 less calories, quite a bit more protein and a bit less fat. Don't confuse them with real food though.

7. Pork Rinds

Fried pork skin. Not a good thing!

8. Fat-Free Cookies

These are even more insidious because they pretend to be healthy. Remember, fat-free doesn't equal calorie free. Betcha can't eat just one!

9. Crackers

Trans-fats anyone? Most crackers are loaded with 'em. Read your labels carefully to find the few that aren't.

10. Pretzels

Surprise, surprise. Remember, just because something doesn't have fat doesn't make it good. This is just white flour, water and sugar masquerading as a healthy snack. Fuggedaboutit.

Runner up: Those creamy, carmelly, coconutty coffee mocha-latte-frappe drinks that are taking over the universe. I love my Starbucks too, but 20 ounces of caffeine, sugar, whipped cream and milk taken once or twice a day does not a lean waistline make!
