photo heart collage

 Personalising room sweet room


finally all the weekend lessons are over....finally time for me, myself and I....woohoo.... and finally move my ass to select and develop our wedding photos 10 months after the wedding... a total of 114 pieces (pre wedding shoots & actual day) to be used for two diy projects.... 

each photo cost mr ang $0.35...extra $0.05 per photo as i insisted on having the white border..... =P

the first project consists of photo of us and us only in our room sweet room....the blank wall above the low cupboard, right in front of the bed.... =) ... took me close to 2 hours to arrange the photos in the desired shape that i wanted with messy messy filling....







tatatata...all our photos combined to form a ginormous heartz

the "happily ever after..." looks super weird hor??? those are letter stickers that i gotten from 'Made with Love' (scrapbooking shop at PS that cost me $11.95)... they are pasted on the green paper before being attached on the wall as i'm afraid the stickers will damage my wall....hahaha....

anyway,will be removing right after i m done with this post....hahaha.... then gonna into city square @ jb during the hols to see if i can get love quotes/verses in decal stickers.... =)

Gifts from Charlene

Gifts from Charlene


lene just came back from hong kong and got me gifts... she is one amazing person who buys MANY MANY gifts for friends and family members on all her holiday trips.... and i always receive many many gifts despite getting her none on most of my trips...oopxy...i m just not a gift person while she is.... we are always opposite and regarding this issue... she's on the more lugi side lo... 

anyway, back to the gifts.....heart heart this woody photo album that comes in a pretty brown box.. there's even melody when the shooting star is being turn oh.... would love it more if the guy was hugging the girl from the back though....wahahahaha...




love this bag the moment i set eyes on it....always luv sling bag.... uber convenient during weekend lessons lo.... interesting colour combi with dotzzzz.....




every time she stays over at home sweet home, she will use one of those disposable toothbrushes from hotels which i had kooped previously... quite smart of her to remember to replenish my stock of disposable toothbrushes with 8 more sets.. =)

and not forgetting the box of 老婆饼.... lala said that mr ang should eat more then will luv 老婆 me more oh....hahahhaa...

Happiness in a Nutshell

Happiness in a Nutshell


had went for dinner with colleagues and mab on thursday and somewhere along the conversation, i was reminded of a little book that i had.....


bought it 5 years ago when i was feeling super stress and unhappy.... needed some happy books and yet refused to buy those thick, boring and super profound kind so imagine my delight when i chanced upon this little book lo.... not cheap k??? $10.40 for such a small book lo....

well, it's filled with quotes and cute sketches and me gonna share some of my favourites here....



 learnt to be more 看开 about everything in life.....things and people really do come and go.....






so stop talking about unhappy things, stop saying how suay u r, stop worrying, stop all negativity...



so the next time u feel that u r at ur suayest, think positively, it can only get better from here... =)




life is never fair....else you will end up having 2 noses and 2 mouths on your face also lo....hahahahaha......so instead of being unhappy about any unfairness, just get on with it and find other things to be happy with la.... life's too short to just focus on the unhappiness where there are tons of other things to be happy with....


anyway, these are the words that kept me sane during the darkest moments in my life....a break up, family crisis, an insane mother and teaching practicum all at the same time.... =S

alot of people around me say that i'm lucky...things just happened for me... even my cute cute hubby was just dropped on my lap like that.....wahahaha....i have to admit that i'm lucky....cos the more i think i'm lucky, the luckier i get....based on the theory "law of attraction"

actually, i dun really think it's purely on luck, i always think that the outcome must also be due to the choices that i had made too....for example, if i din agree to be friend with Mr Ang on that fateful night, if i din reply his facebook message, if i din agree to go on our first date, if i din agree to his proposal then i wun be the happy Mrs Ang now right????

people also comment that i have a damn slack job as a P1 teacher cos they only see the number of times i play bejewel on facebook, have long school holiday and hear that i always say that i don't do work on weekends.... why didnt they think that i might be efficient at my job cos i don't gossip nor chat much in school or that i m organised and do plan ahead or that my lunch is usually done in less than 5 minutes or that i literally jog from one place to another place in school to get things done quickly or that i m creative at doing thing in such a way that tends to kill many birds with one stone or that i make an effort to have good relationships so that we can get things done more easily and quickly????

so, start counting your blessing....list down all the postive things in your life and focus on them.... you will definitely realise that you are luckier and happier than what you think you are.

last third of my birthday weekend

Last Third of my Birthday Weekend

i'm a happy woman...why leh???? cos the following research said so and i agree... =)

"BBC reports that a large scale survey determined that women aged 28-32 are the happiest ones. The study involved over 4 thousand women ages between 25 and 65. It turns out that women start to feel successful in their careers at 29, get the most pleasure from sex at 28, and are the happiest about their personal life at 30. At 32 they reach the peak of financial stability and family happiness.One of the authors of the study commented that between 28 and 30 the woman’s hair and figure are in their best shape and thus the woman feels the utmost confidence in herself."


And
Today
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
woke up this morning with angela on my left and charlene on my right....wahahhaha....Mr Ang had volunteered to sleep on the couch last night as charlene was staying over after the mahjong game.... cos she din win enough to take cab home la....wahahaha.... just joking.... it was pouring and was already close to 2am when we finally finished the game....

sent Mr Ang out of the house for his tuitions then the 3 of us just chit chatted on the bed till 11+ before we headed out to have mac breakfast.... =)...and boy.....birthday girl is a lucky girl today... of the 12 monopoly stickers that were given, i had 2 instant free gifts.... so happy.... birthday presents from Madonalds... wahahaha...was squealing with delight when i gotten the oreo mcflurry one....luv it max max....


another round of chats after we came back and had rambutan yami yoghurt...yum yum yum....
charlene got it yesterday...togther with 5 take home packs....2 for me and 3 for herself....wahahaha.... we are really in love with yami....

the girls left at 2pm and i took a nap... not enough sleep la... cos mr ang insisted on vacuuming and mopping the floor after the mahjong game last night....read 2am in the morning....so only managed to go to bed at 3am....yawn.... it's really a love hate relationship with him regarding housework matters la.... love him max max cos he will insist he do most of the housework = i dun need to do.... yeah!!!! hate him cos when he feels that there is a need to do housework, he will do it irregardless of the time one lo.... argh!!!!

woke up just before mr ang came back from tuition to bathe my super duper cutsy pups....=)

then we went to nex for our dinner.... =)....  since it's Mr Ang's treat...we ordered alot alot of side dishes

prawn mayo (very nice)...fried oyster, gyoza and fried tofu....on top of our main course...


chicken and tofu steak for Mr Ang and

my favourite princess kiss...=*

 
i'm indeed blessed and loved....i'm a lucky girl... thanks everyone who made everything possible... =) ...muackx muackx for ur too...

second third of birthday weekend

Second third of my birthday weekend

it's a day of food and food and more food...first, met mummy at causeway point to try out Hot Tomato at level 2....i had the aglio oglio while mummy had a well done ribeye steak ...topped up set lunch for both of us and cost me $30+.... still prefer xinying's ken's aglio oglio....

then proceed to meet patricia and her son to have dessert a xin wang at yishun.... had mango pudding with vanilla ice cream and ice hong kong milk tea.... yum yum....


then met alfred and alvin to treat them manhattan...these two endless pits ate $90 worth of food lo.... patricia, her son and me were just starring at the 2 as they ate la.... it's amazing what 2 growing men can eat..... but it was fun getting updates from their lifes....

by the time i m done with 3/4 of the food for the day, it was already 5+.... to be ready for 'dinner' with mr ang and angela.... and was super irritated by Mr Ang la... kept keeping track of where i was the whole afternoon.... kept asking me what time i was reaching home, my exact location etc etc....

before i could lash out at him for being so irritating, he said he got a surprise for me.....hmmm.... present??? big big present??? then he led me towards angela's room.... so i thought was it that angela got a bf???? wahahaha.....

to my surprise when the door was opened....chunyang with his silly purple pong pong hair, ailing, yuan, gerald, charlene, joyce and laurice were there.... heee.... really din expect them to be here lo.... they were supposed to only turn up on the last 3rd of my birthday weekend, not the second third.....they even termed the surprise party for me as OSH (operation sweet house) and had been secretly coordinating it for the last 2 weeks .... even roped in Mr Ang to ensure that i will be home during the timing la...no wonder he was checking on me the whole day lo








look at the weird combination of food they bought too...wahahaha....where got ppl buy 3 packets of fried rice one lo??? one was with salted fish, the other one with sambal chilli and a normal one....and also bought 30 chicken wings, 4 rolls of popiah, a box of vegetables, otahs, rojak,  (and not in the photo) 3 bottles of red wine, a bottle of chivas, a bottle of mini baileys, at least 4 - 5 bottles of coke, green tea and ice lemon tea....and all these for 10 people.... !!!!.... 
 
so what's the best way to clear some of the food but the game of fuzzy duck and 007 bang....

it's definitely more fun when you are in the game la.... especially when quirky rules are applied...example, you can only speak in perfect english, ask for permission to start a round of game and not have any abrupt movement.....else the punishment was to
either eat a spoonful of fried rice or drink a sip of red wine…..had a great great 2 - 3 hours laugh

me feeling stress here sitting between the  guys who were out to sobo me in the games...=s


ending off the celebration with an ice cream cake...woohoo..... yummy..... and they just have to do this to me lo....look at the number of candles!!!!!......









look at all the marks the candles left behind.....wahahahaa.....machiam like my pimpled face la.....


then we had a game of mahjong where i won $3... =)..the smallest win to date in home sweet home...wahahaha...

overall, a splendid second third of my birthday weekend....luv the people in my life so so so much..... muackz muackz... 

On a day without make-up. Ailing can still make me pretty with photoshop...wahahahha

first third of my birthday weekend

First third of my birthday weekend

a whole day of happy events and the first one is me waking up at 1130am..... woohoo.....super nice weather in the morning to sleep in lo.... surf net and nua till 3pm before i finally realised that i shouldnt be wasting my children's day like that.... doll myself up a little and headed for some shopping....  

i know...it's a little too revealing..that's y small small pix only.. hahahaha.....Mr Ang confirmed will definitely nag...so i 乖乖地 wear a black spagetti top inside the dress before i head out lo...

first place that i decided to check out was my all time favourite - Far East Plaza....yayaya....i know...i m too old for the clothes there.... but no harm trying right??? hahahaha... guess i'm still mentally not at my age yet.... =P....

after trying and trying on clothes...either i'm too tall (i wish) or the trend is short dresses lo.... i only managed to get 2 dresses from one of the shops that starts with JO** at the basement which i think are long enough to wear to work despite trying on at least 10....

  

$29.90
 


 
$32.90



   actually not that long la.. especially the orangey one.... but at least it's not short short... maybe the orange one will wear go kai kai instead bah... the blue one too 'formal' for me to go kai kai in liao lo...

then from far east walked walked walked till H&M...finally.... after all the woo and the haa..... finally it's my turn in there.... but sad to say....none of the item, together with its pricing, caught my eyes.... was out within 20 minutes??? the queue at the fitting room and cashier were scary too....

 went into cotton on and forever 21...also nothing lo.... chanced upon hula & co and bought a dress and a top...  


 

they having promo....first piece at $25 and the second one at $15...that's the end of my happy event 2 (shopping) and rushed to happy event 3 (dinner with ntu pals)... =) 

tried out Woo Jung Korean Restaurant which we walked past during the last gathering....it's near raffles mrt the ocbc exit, opposite toast box at far east square



look at all the 小菜....free de lo....and free flow somemore lo....we had like 4 plates of the  vege in chilli, 2 plates of the mushroom, 2 plates of cabbage kimchi and 2 plates of the chilli 年糕 or fish cake thingy...


the 吸油烟机 that removes most of the smoke from the bbq meat.... 


is charcoal bbq oh.... not the hot plate kind which Mr Ang and I tried a few weeks back....

our pork being bbq-ed ... this one is super duper yummilious la....


one of the waitresses helping with the bbq-ing and th bill turned up to be only $87 after service charge ...only $29 each... =)


baby marcus with his fries from mos burger....he always got this blur blur cute cute look one lo..... uber cute....

Children's Day gifts for me

Happy Children's Day

Yippy Ya Yo!!!..... i 'm one of the lucky group of adults who gets to enjoy children's day holiday... just cos i'm teaching in a primary school..... sec and jc teachers dun have this holiday de wor.... hahahaha..... and for this year, i had initially decided to give them one cute marker with chop for each of my kiddos.....

$2.90 for a box of 12... making it only $0.25 each....


i also bought a lollipop each for them.... but a day after, i decided to give them only the lollipop....wahahaha.... all 9 boxes of markers were shared by my two P4 art classes to create dot art instead.... maybe only give it to them after the art lessons are completed at the end of october.....

The staff welfare committee arranged for a vendor to come in to sell cute cute stuff which teachers can purchase as children's day gifts....and since i had already gotten mine, i went in just to kpo but came out $20+ poorer..... =(..... but the items bought were all for myself or my friends....wahahaha....
