10th-Mar-2009 02:34 pm - Your switch is your vote

Okay, so no more lip service. It's a small act of flicking the switch. Show your support against
global warming. A movement by WWF, it aims to reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will
be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009.

So, peeps, time to exercise the vote to save our planet!!

9th-Mar-2009 11:28 am - Just dance! [friends, office]
We had our D&D recently at The Legends at Fort Canning. It was nice to unwind after weeks of hard work, and catch up with my colleagues on everything else other than work. I was "sabo-ed" by some colleagues for best dress. We were made to cat walk around the stage, and I danced around instead. Crowd liked it, and I walked away with best dress (dance) and $150 in cash. Not too bad at all!

Working the 'Fallout Boy" look, as my colleague say.


Was played out by colleagues and dragged on stage

Doing what I do best...

I'm back! Yes, I admit I've been gone way too long without an entry but seriously, I needed some ME time. 2008 ended with on a high note and immediately, 2009 started with the death of my landlady. It was a big blow to my friends and me, which you can read about in the previous entry. But you know what, it's time to pick up blogging and have some fun while at it. After I long time, I typed in my blog url in the address bar and was hit with the error messages. I nearly fell off my seat, thinking LJ had closed my account deeming it inactive but then I read the cutest error messages and it had me cracking (and the fact of entering the wrong url dawning on me).

You may already know about this, but if you haven't... aint it just cute!

11th-Jan-2009 09:37 pm - Sonja Rowan
3 days ago, all drama and craziness broke lose. I got a call from my roommate who lives in Brisbane that had me hopping onto a eight-hour flight from Singapore to Brisbane within the next 12hours. My landlady or my God-mother as I had come to affectionately known her as, was in intensive-care unit in the Royal Brisbane & Women's Hospital. She had suffered a heart attack and a cardiac arrest in her sleep on the 3-Jan 2009.

Hearing such news was like having someone taking hold of my heart and squeezing it tight. The pain and sorrow I felt was indescribable. I tossed from anxiety to frustration from feeling so helpless by the distance. The last 48-hours replayed itself in my mind's eye as I had spoke to her recently and everything seemed fine. She had complain of some pains in the right arms and legs but that she was getting by alright otherwise. Little did I know that that was the calm before the storm that would have brought on a whirlwind of events and emotions.

So 3 days later and I am in Brisbane, helping out with Sonja's funeral arrangements with the help of a few good friends. Sonja never made it past Friday morning. The shortage of oxygen during her attack had damaged her brain and she was no longer Sonja in spirit but merely a shell that was kept breathing by tubed machines. I guess, the toughest bit was when her husband, Phil turned around and asked me if we were doing the right thing by stopping her life supports. Even then, we learned the next day that she kept on to her last breathe till 830am; almost 14hours after the machines were switched off. Proving her the fighter she always was.

It was never the way I wanted or intended for a reunion. It breaks my heart that I am losing another connection in the county I have come to love and call home away from home. I could never thank her enough for her love, advice, smiles, hugs, laughter and for inviting me into her life. For what it was worth, I was the lucky one while we lasted.

I look forward to our reunion someday, my love.

I had a heart-to-heart with some folks from Saatchi & Saatchi. It was good fun; listening to the pitches and wine, the laughs and goss made me miss being in advertising...
As I was mentioning to a friend, Christmas becomes a bitter-sweet experience once you cross over a certain age where with every Christmas celebration comes the year end countdown, and the reminder that you're another year older. But that won't stop me from getting into the festive mood. So I'm starting with my wallpaper on my laptop, which hopefully will inspire me when I doll up the Xmas tree!

Halloween's come and gone. This year was last minute preparation and I printed out some labels while out at a training course. Came home and a quick DIY and I was ready to charm with my best Obama smile, and convince voters to embrace change! It was good fun, after two long weeks for not socialising (from caring for Murphy). Great company, music and fun, ending with me getting sooo plastered to the point of dunking my cell into a cup of alcohol. I'll remember to have my dinner before partying ever again. As for my cell, go figure!!
