A new Chapter Ditto!

 

Christmas isn’t Christmas…

A first long weekend in a while and on Christmas, I met up with my relatives for our usual meet-up.

Swenson's, United Square My customary lunch with the relatives. The group seems slightly smaller each year.

A couple of us My cousin, his gal and my grand aunt. My cousin, let’s call him lolo (that’s his nickname, been calling him that since I could remember), brought his girlfriend for the gathering. It was his first time bringing someone for our “inspection”. My dad HAD TO be the shit-stirrer, he joked, reassured her saying “don’t woooorrrry, you’re the first girl he brought to us” and dramatically winked at Lolo. Yeeeaaap, that’s my dad.

1st generation The first generation, having kopi.

Adults The parents of lot, also having kopi.

Ahhhh..the youngters...well, the older youngsters Us, with the chao extras. hehee… The older youngsters. Ah, we’re finally growing up.

Coffee sessions Coffee sessions with my cousins, what more can I ask for?

Just us... FINALLY. A decent shot of just us. I can’t wait to see them end January again. I love them!!!

With the boys Out with the boys at night. FIRST TIME, in a long while, that I’m taking a photo with Keith (with another person in the photo – he hates taking photos in threes) Anyway we were at the M Hotel, having ala carte buffet. It wasn’t too bad, considering, it was friggin 60 bucks per person!!! Heh, but because it’s dear Mr Loy’s birthday, I thought of being nice to the birthday boy – treated him lor.

A year older! A year older, a year wiser Mr Loy!!!

My Pseudo Boyfriend for now...hahaha! Mr R Lim and I =) He’s one of my great buddies who helped me through last year! Love ya!!!

Yeah, so there, I ended my Christmas on a mellow note. We were at the Wine Company along Dempsey Road for an hour or so before we headed home. NIceeeeee….I mean I thoroughly enjoyed my Christmas. Christmas isn’t Christmas without your friends and family. =)

Resolutions again?!??! January 3, 2007

Filed under: Christmas & New Year,Myself — renzi @ 4:10 pm

2006 came and went. It’s really true – once you start working, time flies so damn quickly. In a blink of an eye, before you know it, time went by in a breeze. I’m actually quite scared to think, in a year’s time, I’ll be saying the same damn thing, that time indeed zoomed by without me realising it.

Anyway before I start rattling on and on at my amazement about…well, time. Let’s see… I had a fucked up year (don’t mind the language). I mean I had my ups and downs but….it was more of the downs that really made me so depressed.

I went for my first trip to Perlis. Had a great time there, especially with the girls. I found out where the hell Perlis was. And and…it was my first time stepping into Thailand soil. It was short-lived but great nonetheless…

Nothing much happened during the first quarter. Relationship-wise, it was pretty unstable. Work-wise, I was still procrastinating to get a job. The only thing that got me by were the camps that I attended. Ulghhh..bratty spoilt kids who made my blood boil, I still love them anyway!

Oh, I picked up wakeboarding, but I found that sport a little too…pricey. It is fun, if I must mention. Ah, the times when you fall, hit your face, you really feel like you’ve been punched but somehow it was addictive.

I had by far one of the worst birthdays. Hence my theory of birthdays, my birthday to be exact. I HATE my birthdays! I ALWAYS avoid the stupid date – April Fool’s Day.

May to June was torturous. Okay, work was alright. The nature of my job was boring because it was back office and it was friggin PASSWORD ADMINISTRATION!!? Whoever knew banks would have such departments for internal staff members?? I met a buncha kick-ass girls who turned out to be my netball team mates, made me fall in love with netball all over again. I ALSO then realised my stamina went down the drain because I hadn’t been exercising for the longest time (other than… wakeboarding).

In that period, I kept going for interviews hoping to snarl up at least one position before my damn contract ended. I was offered by a couple of financial institutions but I chose this company (not mentioning names here – well all I can say is I’m still working there)

What can I say about the later part of the year, I got a job, met an AC mate in the company and she turned out to be kickass! I mean she and another girl whom I met during the interview session. The three of us became inseparable. We’re still close now *beams*

ANYWAYYY,….got to know ALOT more people in the duration of 6 months because of qutie a bit that happened. I went out with more people, learnt alot at work, realised certain characteristics of myself, re-acquainted myself with certain friends like Jingxi and Danielle… wow..it was a blast.

Oh, did I mention, I learnt the basics of how to play a guitar too!!! =)

Oh oh oh! And Joe came to down! That really made me so damn happy. Who else visited? Jackie…May and Joey… *grin*

Of course there was this certain incident that HAD TO spoil everything. I mean not everything but it was my everything and because of that, at least partially, I kept falling sick, didn’t wanna be alone and lost my drive for almost everything.

I was and am still very glad that ALL my close friends and even family were there for me. I cannot stress that enough. You know there are certain people you think you can live without, but as time passes and things unfold, you realise it’s all not worth it. You’ve tried your best and you know it’s all that matters.

Upon reflection, and after a church service….I realised yeah, that yeah, it may be a shit year, but… friends and family make it all worth it. They make you realise so much things, that some things are just trivial and even though it’s in your face… you don’t realise it. I know I’m just rambling… Don’t mind me…. hahahahah

I’m so friggin glad for EVERYTHING. I am indeed fortunate to have a job, have great friends and a family.

Thank you God.

I’m indeed excited right now to see how the next chapter of my life unfolds. Watch it with me, be with me… watch my tears (hopefully of joy) and laughter as I grow up, or well, grow older. =)

Wheeeee….

 

4 Days to Christmas – watch Love Actually again? December 21, 2006

Filed under: Christmas & New Year,Movies,Quote — renzi @ 12:03 pm

Every year, I look forward to the season’s Christmas movie. I’m pretty satisfied with The Holiday. Predictable but good nonetheless. However, my all-time favourite is Love Actually. I have actually watched it at least 5 times, beat that! Hehe…anyway here are my favourite quotes from the movie (the ones in bold are the ones I actually agree with):

Sam: But you know the thing about romance is people only get together right at the very end.

Daniel: Tell her that you love her. You’ve got nothing to lose, and you’ll always regret it if you don’t

Karl: Life is full of interruptions and complications.

Mark: But for now, let me say – Without hope or agenda – Just because it’s Christmas – And at Christmas you tell the truth – To me, you are perfect – And my wasted heart will love you – Until you look like this

Daniel: Well, you know – I thought it might be something worse.
Sam: [incredulous] Worse than the total agony of being in love?
Daniel: Oh. No, you’re right. Yeah, total agony.

Billy Mack: Christmas is a time for people with someone they love in their lives.

Billy Mack: Hiya kids. Here is an important message from your Uncle Bill. Don’t buy drugs. Become a pop star, and they give you them for free.

Daniel: You’ve seen the films, kiddo. It ain’t over ’til it’s over.

Billy Mack: And I realized that as dire chance and fateful cockup would have it, here I am, mid 50s, and without knowing it I’ve gone and spent most of my adult life with a chubby employee. And much as it grieves me to say it, it might be that the people I love is, in fact… you.

The President: I’ll give you anything you ask for – as long as it’s not something I don’t want to give.

Jamie: I love you even when you’re sick and look disgusting.

Mia: I don’t want something I need. I want something I want – something pretty.
