Thank you everyone

I am sorry to have worried you guys. Thank you for all your encouragement and I would like to reassure everyone that I will try to stay strong. I am starting to ease up a little now. Situation is still fairly tense but I am trying to take it in stride.
I am sorry that this is not a very good post. I don't think I sound very coherent here, my English seems funny somehow. But please just put up with me for now alright? (Oh and bear with my act cute photos too.)

I've never been more weary. Each single step seems to take a huge effort out of me. The light at the end of the tunnel has dimmed somehow. I can't see where I am heading. Can someone please remind me where my destination is again?

I seem to be going round and round in circles. I went through so much just to come back to where I had started from in the beginning. I thought that I had learnt life's lesson well but actually I've learnt nothing at all. Nought. A big fat zero.
As Megan cries, I sat down to cry with her. God forbid but I suggested that perhaps she stays with her dad (that would take away the reason I need to wake up everyday). It only made her cry harder. I don't know how to cope anymore. I just don't. It's taking too much out of me. Too many things.........
Everything was going so well, so how did I get so disillusioned? I don't know. I really don't.

Very 'suay'

I think everything has been working against me recently. Down on my luck or whatever you might call it. It's an accumulative effect I think. Been really stressed up by a whole string of events.
New job, new car, and now new maid. I can't communicate with her for nuts! As if that wasn't enough to drive me round the bend, Megan has been acting up too. (I don't know if it's because of the new maid.) She's been throwing tantrums day in & out.
To add fuel to fire, a neighbour has filed a complain against Woofie for barking too much. I have already got a trainer to try and help me rectify the problem but that also means worrying about Woofie's training schedule. The trainer has changed Woofie's food, water, pee & poop schedule therefore I have to try adhere to it plus making sure that I remember to train Woofie daily. As if "training" Megan everyday is not enough.
And now I am finally sick, "Acute Pharyngitis", and home on 2 days MC. I don't know if I should see this as a blessing in disguise since I get to finally take a break.
Oh and one more thing, I've got virus on my PC! Till that is rid, I've got problem downloading photos from my camera onto my computer. Since there's no photos to share, thought I'll share with you the neoprints that I took over the past 2 weeks instead.
Pray for me guys that all gets better soon........

Went for a movie night with my sisters and all the boyfriends

Ken after a haircut

Went out with Meg alone for some quality time

Noxologous @ Xanga

Reading this cracks me up. It holds such truth............

I think most parents feel obligated to participate when strangers attempt play with their kids.

Regardless of how unreceptive the kids are.

Little do mum and dad know, that some strangers are just plain scary.

In situations like these kids become sacrificial lambs for the maintanence of adult civility.

Ugly Singaporean

I am so F**KING pissed right now! I just had the most unpleasant (the word doesn't even come close to describing how unpleasant it is) encounter with the ugliest kind of Singaporeans ever.
Ken & I went to a casino ship today. (Pictures will have to come another day - need to dissipate my anger right now.) And as all of you know, casino ships are dominated by aunties and uncles. (Okay, I know I am generalising now.) While we were abidingly lining up to get our passports, there were groups of people that simply don't give a damn and just cut in front of us. I have 1 major pet peeve - I have zero tolerance for people who cut queue. Those who do, inevitably gets a tongue lashing from me. However I decided to let it go since we were there to have fun and I bit my tongue, to prevent me from telling them off. (You have absolutely no idea how much will power it took me to do so. I was seething so badly inside.)
However I can hold back no longer at the customs in Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, when an aunty decided to just come from the back and stand in front of me! I told her to join the queue but she acted blur and insisted that that was her rightful place cos she was there all along. I was adamant and seeing that she couldn't get around it, she changed tact and started shouting loudly that I am bad for not giving way to elderly. Ken retorted that the entire place is filled with elderly and does that mean we should give way to everyone?
The immigration officer tried to mediate and then right in front of him, she told me "You want to stand in front right? Then come stand in front!" But get this. While saying that, she put both hands on my arms and pulled me forward really hard. The shock and impact of the pull hit me so hard that I very nearly fell forward. Both Ken and the officer were stunned and shouted at her to stop. By this time, everyone was turning around to look at the commotion.
Well, she did good with that pull because that shocked me speechless. Never in the world would I expect that. She smugly stood at where she was and all the time shaking her head as if I was in the wrong. Me bullying an old lady. Look who's bullying who! She even blatantly got a friend to join her in the queue after that!
What aggravates the matter was that the immigration officer actually tried to give an excuse for her by saying perhaps she lost at the ship and allowed her to stay where she was. I told the officer off about condoning such behaviour. But he simply replied that incidents such as this happens everyday, implying I should overlook it as well. It is his duty to maintain order. All he needed to do was simply ask her to join the queue. He had the power to do so but he didn't. He chose the easy way out - by not doing anything. He didn't right the wrong! In the end, I was made to look the fool, as if I was the unreasonable one because that aunty got her way.
We crossed path with the aunty again on our way out. She cursed at the top of her voice that may we die a horrible death. UNBELIEVABLE!!! Truly barbaric.
I wish to clarify mself before you guys get me wrong that I am not willing to give in to an old lady. I have no qualms whatsoever about giving in just as long as she ask. I am willing to let you stand in front of me regardless of what age group you are as long as you just ask me for permission. I understand that there are times when people might be more pressed for time than I am.
So remember my number 1 pet peeve - do not stand in front of me without asking.

Uniz's birthday

My apologies for not updating. I should have been updating more since I have changed to my new job. But guess I was just too caught up on spending time with Meg & Ken. Just in case all you green monsters rear your heads, my new job is not entirely easy peasy. Lots & lots of reading to do but just that I have been procrastinating. Reason? Same as the one above, as to why I am not updating. :p

We celebrated Uniz's birthday the Sunday before. Or was it the one before before? It seems a long time ago..... *checks calendar* Nope correct, it's the one before. Sheesh....... no wonder they say time flies once you're past 30!

For the benefit of those who don't regularly read my blog, Uniz is my 2nd sis who's 1 year younger than me (which makes her 29) & resides in UK as a tattoo artist. (I don't know why I felt compelled to tell all of you her lifestory tonight.) In any case, she's been here for a while now awaiting the delivery of her baby girl in August. I am sooo excited! (Meg's really excited too!) I'm sure the baby, being of mixed heritage, will be so pretty.
We went to Chuan Xiang restaurant located near Concourse for buffet steamboat. Terrific food for very very cheap prices. They offer many variety of soup bases and we took the "Ma La" & chicken. I gotta say it's the best "Ma La" steamboat I ever had!

At the pet farm before the dinner

Rene & Uniz - so lovey dovey

Megan loves them

Meg's standard pose

What did I say about the pose?
Funny face this time
She absolutely adores the camera
A happy family
Lovey dovey too ;)
Chocolate mousse
Uncle Terrence made Rene wear that leaf. Although I wonder why?
Meg's our mascot. No photo is complete without her.
So sweet!
I am positioning myself to include everyone in the photo. (Watch where Meg is sitting.)
Everyone is oblivious that I am taking their photos. (Watch Meg's position again.)

She noticed me and came right up in front of my camera to smile into it! Hahaha!!!
Our dual steamboat - I know it doesn't look very appetizing now but that's the aftermath of our ravenous attacks. (Hadn't the foresight to take a pic before eating.)
