It's been a while since I've done one of those "I'm thankful for.." type posts, so I guess today's as good as any day to do one.

1. My foldable umbrella
I used to be one of those people who never carried a brolly. Nevermind that the skies were overcast and that you could almost smell the rain, I was tough and didn't need a brolly. After all, skin is waterproof, right?

Who knows what happened to that tough chick. I now carry my foldable brolly in my bag, and I'm so glad I do. With the unpredictable weather these days, the brolly protects against the elements.

Example: Decided to walk to Orchard Road after I was done with my appointment at Nassim Road. It wasn't all that far, about a ten to fifteen minute walk, but the sun was scorching. Before I knew it, I had whipped out the brolly (just like my ma).

But at least I was cool and the sweat wasn't pouring down my face. Which allowed me to watch videos on.. 

2. VLC media player app on my iPhone
VLC released an app for the iPhone which allowed users to view videos of any format without having to make them iPhone compatible. But not too long after the app hit the iTunes store, it got pulled. So for those people who are trying to find it, I don't think you can.

I'm pretty sure that there are other apps which allow you to watch videos, but everyone knows VLC! Plus, I'm too lazy to find out which ones they are. Lol.

Thanks to this app, the commute to work is no longer boring and I can (try to) keep up to date with the latest TV shows. Which brings me to...

3. Chris
aka Provider of All Videos. Where would we be without him and his obsession with getting hold of the latest TV shows and movies?

4. LGG
Well, seeing as how I'm too lazy to meet up with Chris, LGG is usually the one who does the grabbing. Of digital files. (Of course, no one is stopping her if she wants to grab more.)

On top of being the more sociable of the two, and generously sharing all her friends with me, LGG is the best friend anyone can have. Actually, the best friend *I* could have.

She is actually as bo liao as me (if not more, don't be fooled!), and is usually more than willing to partake and suggest nonsense shenanigans to keep us occupied.

From LOTR movie marathons, to cooking marmite-themed meals. From kissing random strangers just for fun, to getting drunk on too much champagne. From planning holiday destinations, to MSN conversations about casting actors for Edding's books.

Anyway, without LGG, I wouldn't have been introduced to the show Vampire Diaries.

5. Vampire Diaries
OMG Damon is so hot. He should appear topless in the show more often. Enough said. Lol.
