Yummy says I should keep at it, but so lazy... But let's see. Looking at these old entries is so inspiring!
It was a short trip over only three days, but a good one. Managed to catch up with my agents and got to know a few more people, and all in all had a tiring but enjoyable time.
Had dinner at this place called Social House, which is at Grand Indonesia mall I think. Nice chill out place and great ambience. Also managed to squeeze in some shopping at the Tebet area and bought some stuff for the grasshopper. Had a cheap massage that cost only 85,000 rupiah! Approximately 12 sgd. Bliss.
Anyway I will be going back in 2 weeks time and spending my birthday there. Not too keen on that but what to do?
Listening to Astrud Gilberto now and I'm so happy. I love her music.

Now all we have to do is test if I can receive Truphone calls even when I'm running other applications.

Interestingly, I've noticed that I get on facebook and twitter less, and spend more time checking emails on the go, playing games (even this is not that much), and listening to music. And I spend the most time on my iPhone4... *drumroll* ... watching videos.
I like the phone but the battery life is not as good as I'd like. I have to charge it every day, and sometimes even twice a day, but I reckon with so many applications running on it, it's not that surprising that the battery drains out pretty fast. I was also disappointed that applications like Skype don't work all that well on a phone, even if I'm connected to a wi-fi network. The grasshopper and I use Truphone to call each other because it's clearer than Skype, but that only works on a wi-fi network.
.. I'd type more but (and I hate to admit this) work beckons. Update later.

I've also added 6 contacts and hmm that's about it.
My data plan only gets activated by midnight tonight and I've been too busy in the office today to get anything else done. So tonight will be dedicated to fiddling around with it more. After I grab some dinner, of course.
I decided to sign up for a phone line with m1 and here's why. While I've able to get more value for my buck with a pre-paid sim card, my usage has changed somewhat since meeting the grasshopper.
Firstly, international calls will now be free thanks to Skype. Having it on both our phones means that all we need to do is be logged on all the time and we can call each other anytime.
Second, applications like Whatsapp will allow me to SMS other iPhone users with the same application, for free! Of course, if you don't have an iPhone or if you don't have the Whatsapp application, then I'll have to stick to old fashioned SMSes.
Thirdly, I get free incoming calls! So now I'll have to cut down on SMSing and do the leave-a-missed-call-so-you-call-me-back thing. Lol.
I'm excited but a tad lazy to learn how to use the phone. Plus, I'll need to get a screen protector and case cover. *yawn* But apparently the iPhone is pretty idiot proof and is very easy to pick up. So hopefully I'll figure it out soon enough. :D
The grasshopper is the best!!! :D

Anyway, I washed my hair this morning and quickly toweled it dry. This resulted in a poofy head of maggi mee style hair, which looked quite aunty but I didn't really give a hoot about.
We were heading to the hospital for her checkup and on the way to the train station, my mom mentions that maybe I should get my hair blown at the salon. Waaaa?
So now I've got to fork out 20 bucks to get my hair blown into neat little curls cos my mom thinks I'm too ugly to be seen in public with her. (Just kidding, ma. Calm down.)
I'm sitting here while the guy struggles to tame this crazy head of hair. Ah well. If it makes my mom happy, what's 20 bucks. Heehee.

He even went as far as giving the creative direction and specific instructions to the stylist (his friend, by the way) and they discussed what would suit me when they were watching Step Up 3. So all I had to do was go to the salon and say I was BentoSet's friend, and that's it!
I like my hair. It's definitely a change from the straight hair that I've had for the 2 years. The only thing I'm worried is how to maintain a neat looking head of hair- it's only been one night (and
not washed either!) and already it's looking considerably messier than when I stepped out of the salon.
I'm also worried about dryness. Perming always damages the hair, and before that my hair has been through 2 rounds of rebonding. Need to ask around on what to do.
Ah well. This is why I don't go to the salon more often than once a year. I can't imagine how people willingly sit there for hours on end. Zzz. The ceramic rollers that they curled my hair around was so heavy, my neck was tired. Lol.
Anyway, the price of vanity. Heehee.
