Flowers = Smile

I don't know why but when I see flowers, they make me smile! :)
As I was walking home from Tanglin Mall, I walked past the following beauties along the pavement (where all the construction is on-going now, around Gleneagles Hospital and Botanic Gardens Nassim Gate area). Very few people, in fact, none stopped to admire them. 
Thank you for brightening my day, especially during this period of stress.

No Junk Food Challenge

I have decided to take up a "No Junk Food" Challenge, starting 1 October 2014 for 21 days for a better health since I am pre-diabetic. 
I avoided eating from the above list when I first found out I am pre-diabetic a couple of years back. I felt good physically and mentally. However with the passing of time, I got lazy and lax about what I eat. It's time I watch what I eat again for my health. Wish me luck! :)

Psst, anyone care to join me? :P

She is My Daughter! :)

During last weekend, Marieann came to me excitedly and pulled me from the living room into their grandparents' room to watch a programme. 

Marieann: Mama, there's this really nice show on tv and you will like it. 
Me: Really? 
Marieann: Yes, got strange strange things. But it is a very old show. 
Me: Err, ok. 

When I saw the programme, I couldn't help but had a HUGE smile on my face. She's watching...
The X Files! Haha. It remains one of my all-time favourite sci-fi shows on tv! :)

Mareiann: Mama, you know this show?
Me: OF COURSE! The X-Files, Agent Fox Mulder and Agent Dana Scully! :)

Marieann is my daughter! Trust her to have similar interests as I do - mystery, sci-fi, horror, supernatural, thriller. Since that weekend, we have been watching The X-Files together and discussing about the episodes lol. :P

Different or Same?

I am tone deaf but do these three songs sound similar?

I am supposed to be at home on leave today but I spent most part of today at the office sending out about 150 emails to primary schools in my project. Well, if work needs to be done, it has to be done. I will take another day off then.

PSLE 2014 Listening Comprehention

Today is the PSLE 2014 Listening Comprehension for English Language (9am) and Mother Tongue Language (11:15am). There is no school for P1-5 students so that the P6 PSLE candidates can do their listening comprehension without the usual noisiness of school.

Stay calm and do your best, Marieann.
All the Best to my first born, Marieann!

Belated Teacher's Day Wishes

I received my belated Teacher's Day wishes from school today. :)
It brought a huge smile to my face and a warm fuzziness to my heart. :) Despite being only a part-time school counsellor, I have not been forgotten every Teacher's Day by the students for the last 10 years. 
Thank you!

Potato Chips

I enjoy my occasional bag of chips. Ok, my frequent bag of chips lol. Classic flavours I enjoy are Sour Cream & Onion and BBQ. I also like hunting for the more unusual flavours such as Sweet Chilli & Sour Cream, Lime & Black Pepper, Honey Soy Chicken, Maple Bacon, Sweet Onion, etc. I cannot stop when I am talking about chips haha. 
Accurate results from Blogthings quiz and I do like onion flavoured chips. :)

You Are an Onion Chip
You are a true friend, and very loyal to those around you. You can be counted on.
You are steady and stable, but you aren't boring. You have that little zing that everyone is looking for.

You are more of a follower than a leader, but you never blend in. People like to have you around.
In the right company, you really shine. You are shy at first, but you open up when you're a part of the group.

NOISE Singapore 2014

I missed out on bringing my girls to NO13E Singapore 2014 Festival Showcase Exhibition at ION Event Hall B4. With all the "excitement" about Prelims and PSLE, I forgot to note the dates for NO13E Singapore 2014 (27 August - 14 September). Alas, I could only admire the art works by myself and take as many photos as I could to show the girls. Sorry, girls, 2015 ok?

I went to replace my ez-link card (use on public transportation) which expires in October 2014. I was pleasantly surprised to be offered a Justice League special ez-link card as replacement!
 I love my Batgirl!
