Decided to rip off all the dressings and take a fucking shower. Feel so good now that I'm clean (and not just towel wiped). Wounds hurt like fuck though. Arm is numb but I'll live.

Thank god for mothers with gentle hands. My mom helped me apply some betadine on the wounds and cleverly thought of a way to cover them so I can go to bed without worrying. Moms are the best.

You don't realise how important your skin is until you lose it. Methinks our plans to go cycling at Rottnest Island today was just not meant to be.

Darwin booked our tickets, we got on the ferry to Rottness, picked up our bikes and headed to Dome for breakfast. We deliberately sat within sight of the bikes but conversation got in the way, and when we looked up, the bikes were gone. Apparently this is a common occurrence, cos when we went to the jetty to tell them what happened, they just gave us 2 more bikes.

Cycled about for about half an hour. I was going downhill when I realised I was going a bit too fast for my liking, tried to slow down, hit my brakes too quickly, and hit the pavement.

I must have skidded on my side cos I scraped the skin off my forearm, triceps, armpit, boob, belly, thigh and knee. Lol. An injury that only ten year old kids would get.

Ah well. Not looking forward to the recovery.

Our Eddings Casting

Hehe was watching LOTR this afternoon and chatting with LGG at the same time. Somehow we started discussing who we would cast if someone were to make an Eddings movie. Here's what we got:

Belgarath- Ian McKellen
Polgara- Angelina Jolie
Beldaran- Kate Bosworth
Belgarion- that Bourne guy
Durnik- that blonde Thor guy
Ce'Nedra- cheerleader from Heroes
Silk- we haven't decided. Maybe Antonio Banderas

Then we got distracted and started chatting about other stuff. But I do think it's a pretty good list. Hehe.

After hearing about my new-found freedom to have a TV in my room, babycakes looked at me and asked "Why get a TV? You should get an iMac. Then you can play all your games PLUS use the computer, all from the comfort of your bed."

Then I stupidly tell Alf what babycakes told me, and he said "No, you should get a 40" TV + mac mini. Bigger screen + games + use computer from your bed."

My friends are evil.

Two More Months Till My Social Life Goes Extinct

All of you who know me in real life will probably know that I don't have a TV in my bedroom. And it's not because I believe in having quality sleep (or sleep at all) at night, but rather because my dad simply did not allow me to have one in the bedroom.

I used to think that it was because TVs emitted unhealthy (insert type- X? ultra violet? gamma? micro?) rays which were bad for you. But I was wrong! Apparently the no-TV rule was only applicable for my school-going days because we needed to STUDY.

So I've been needlessly without a TV in my room for the past 8 years! Wah lau eh.

But anyways, the truth is out. The possibilities are endless.

Went out with SF yesterday to get a second controller for her wii. Many of the shops had demonstrations of the Xbox Kinect. My eyes were open to stuff that I never gave a shit about before in the past because I could not have them. Spent the entire afternoon playing wii dance and it was hilarious fun.


All I need now is a TV, game console thing and a media player and I can say goodbye to my already non-existent social life! The only person I'll ever need to meet is LGG cos she is my BFF plus she gets a steady supply of movies and TV shows from Chris.

TV in room + media player + game console thing = extinct social life. Wah I better start meeting all my friends this year.

Music Moods

It's interesting how music can affect and enhance the mood that you're in. Soothing tunes relax you, quick beats perk you up, and depressing songs make you feel like it's the end of the world.

Strangely, I've been experiencing a deeper funk than I've felt in a while and listening to Adele's album definitely does not make things any better. Of course, the logical thing would be to stop listening to her songs and play something more chirpy- but.. her songs just resonate and maybe I'm being a sadist.

What A Waste Of A Perfectly Good Rainy Night

It's raining and this is perfect weather for sleeping. I'm wrapped up nice and snug in my blanket but instead of enjoying a blissful night sleeping, I'm wide awake. Argh.

This is what happens when you fall asleep watching a boring horror movie at a friends house and end up getting back home at 3am and then sleeping in till noon. And glugging a cup of coffee immediately after waking up because you'll be in photography class for who-knows-how-long (turned out to be 6 hours).

And to think I so proudly exclaimed on Friday that it was ok to screw up my sleeping cycle since I had a 4 day long weekend. Note to self: No it's not ok to screw up sleeping cycle. Ever.

Time to start counting sheep.

Stressed? Me?

The lady who I go for massages asked me if I'm very stressed at work. Apparently my back and neck muscles are really tight, and as soon as she manages to get them fairly pliable, the tension comes back again.

I don't know. I certainly don't think I'm stressed at work, at least not now. Peak period only starts next year. Perhaps it's all the traveling I've done, perhaps it's just poor ergonomically designed furniture in the office. Maybe it's time to get a new bed and pillow.

Many people have said that I ought tp get into yoga. All the sequences will help with posture, strengthening and stretching the muscles, but it's just so boring la. *pouts*

Oh well, let's see. Plus I'm rather averse to large classes and prefer to have lessons in small groups where you get a better instructor to student ratio. So if I am able to find a studio that I like, maybe. In the meantime I guess I'll have to practise being a rubber band at home and do my stretching as often as I can.

4 Day Weekend, Yo!

Decided to take today off, even though I didn't really have any plans. Might go for a swim, and a session of tuina, and then meet the girls for a drink.

Tempted to skip out of town for the next couple of days, but don't know where to go and it's a bit last minute to plan something. Malacca? Penang? KL? Batam? Bintan? Hmmm. Maybe.

Waiting, Waiting

Sometimes I catch myself waiting for an email or text message that I know will never come. I take a deep breath, and continue what I was doing before.

2 more months to the end of the year, and it never ceases to amaze me how quickly time just passes. While we wrap up 2011, I can't help but wonder what 2012 will bring.
