Dear, Je T'aime

The 2 times that I ever got a bouquet of flowers from dear hubby is:
1. When I was hospitalised in March 07
2. When he proposed on 21st May 07
I received a surprise from him yesterday when he sent this huge bouquet of lilies to my office. The previous 2 that I received were hand delivered, one was kept in paper bag when he gave it to me, the one for proposal was stuffed into his bag!! Hahaha...
The reason he sent me flower this time round?? Huge argument.. that explains the huge flower he gave me. Hehehe.. well, we sorted things out after cooling down for 24hrs, not after 50+++ SMS exchanges and another 20+++ missed call (from him of course).

Dear.. I love the flowers!!! Muacks!


Arrrgghhh.. the agony of making decisions.
I realise that it was fun going rounds to different designers looking at their design but the moment we start discussing about quotations and prices, I will be so sleepy. Wahaha... I am hopeless with numbers, especially those with $$ in front of them...
We have finally concluded our list of shortlisted IDs (interior designers) - down from 10 to 2. It wasn't a difficult decision to make then. Now that there are 2, which a price different of $10K and a totally different personality between them, I am torn..
What is the criteria for selection? What is the risk that I will be taking? Will the end result be as nice as what was being drawn? So many questions ran through my mind - dear n myself actually got headache earlier, we were being objective and start asking each other questions abt the pros n cons of each ID.
......well, I have yet to decide. Price over design? Good review by others? Comfort level between us and the designer? I will sleep over it later.

On a happier side, my house in Malaysia is nearly to completion stage. Floor has been laid. I must comment the workmanship in laying the 800x800 homo tiles are pretty good. The common bathroom on the ground floor is done (only fixtures to be installed), kitchen top is completed, lighting points and air condition trunk is fixed, fish pond is ready.. not too bad.

We are targetting to move in by Nov 07. That will mean I will be moving quite a fair bit this year.. headache. The tonnes of clothes and shoes and books and magazines that I have.. I intend to have a warehouse sale by then. Will let go some of my clothes and books n magazines.. sad but no choice.. I can always buy them again. ;)
* tell you a secret, I actually spent $100+ within 30minutes on Friday. Bought 2 mini-bag from Mmphosis and a shoe from PrettyFit. Hehehe.. champion!!

CK wallet for YT and Seiko Criteria watch for mua!

We checked in Raffles the Plaza last night. It was a free room I got when I signed up for the Feeds at Raffles Gourmet card last month. The room was fantastic. Great city view, large bathroom with Amrita Spa toilettries (yippee!!), big comfy king size bed, day bed, etc etc wonder we slept till 12noon today. Hahaha..did not even realise it rained! We wanted this day to be a relaxing one for us after such a stressful weeks previously.

Comfy king size bed

Dear bought white wine - his surprise for me

Our relaxing regime - facial!

We had casual lunch, walked about in Raffles City before heading home to put our stuff down. We head to Coffee Bean for tea break.. we absolutely love moments like this. Sitting down with a cuppa and our fave books and let the day pass by.
Again, there are free vouchers for my Raffles card, we head to City Hall (knowing very well we will be caught in a frenzy later on) Bar & Billiard Rook for dinner. Though their buffet line is not the best ard, their food quality is indeed something, i.e. lobster, scallops, lychee sorbet, choc fountain..yummy!! I heard the buffet is ard $120+ per couple.. but its free for us! Hehehehe...

Appetisers, desserts and not forgetting Singapore Fling

Without you, I will not be me!

Farewell Shu Nee

I always understand how fragile human life is. With the demise of my aunt last year, I began to appreciate my family, both immediate and extended more. I make it a point to go home every month, make it a point to not go out on weekends just to spend more time with my folks. I tried to visit my grandparents often enough.
During my course of long work week coupled with dating time, I neglected some of my precious friends including my own sister cum housemate. Taking them for granted, I always thought they would be around all the time. I always thought they would pick my call up each time I feel like calling them. I thought life will not be so cruel to young ppl like us. How wrong was I.. a good friend of mine passed away on Wednesday, 1st Aug 2007. She was like a sister to me. I first met her during our days in AIT (our first company in Singapore).. a few gals were close like sisters, going out for dinner, shopping, gossiping, playing mahjong over weekends. We took care of each other. They (Shu Nee, Ivy, Lynette) especially took care of me cos I am the youngest among them and the most 'duh' person among them. They really gave me the support I needed during the lowest moment in my life. No one knew she was suffering for 1.5 years before succumbing to her illness.. it pains me to write this piece. I was staying a stone throw away from her, yet I never made it a point to call her or even sms her. And there I was grumbling each time when I ask her out she refuses. I finally knew the reason why.. she was resting at home cos she feel sick after her chemo session.. she will be missed, DEFINITELY!!!
Shu Nee, I am sorry for not being a good friend to you. Sorry for not being there with you during your lowest period of your life. If I could turn back the clock, I will do things differently. May you find peace in your after life. Please know that I will miss you alot! I will miss your smile, your good ol' advice.
