On monday, I went to Alexandra Hospital for my wisdom teeth extraction. The dentist arranged to have 2 removed. She actually asked whether I wanted to go under GA and take all four out, i wasn’t that adventurous after hearing SOOOO many horror stories and having gone under the knife myself before (to remove 4 teeth).

Sooooooo… i plucked up enough courage, and with the help of Ms Swimmer and her boy, and went ahead with it. At first I was so scared…I requested to play my mp3s and the dentist/surgeon obliged. I started playing worship songs and praising God. I heard the drilling intensify and so I increased my volume, continued praising Him. In less than 20 min, they asked me to sit up as it was done. Amazing. God was with me through this. Never could do this kinda things, without him 🙂

Praise him!

Anyway I’ll prob put up a few photos on my teeth. Hur hur. I told Ms Swimmer that I kept ALL my teeth that I extracted. She said I was gross. hur hur. Well, I took some photos already. Am ready to gross her out, then throw away my 6 teeth. 🙂

All the best to her later hur hur (when I show it to her )

Time to get out of here…looking for liquids to fill me up. I’m super super hungry from not eating decent food. Sob…

Days were the those… May 19, 2008

Filed under: Friends,Myself — renzi @ 1:21 pm

I Reckong I used this title before but who cares eh? I’m just thinking, reminiscing about the time since I came back…since December 2005. Wow… how time flies. That’s all I can say…

Just after graduation it was a jam-packed December 05 from partying, to drinking sessions, to meetups with my loved ones both in Singapore and Aus… Man… Those were the days.

Then came Jan05 which was jammed with meeting up with people, birthday celebrations etc… Here I was with Byron. He was as usual teasing me about everything and anything. I miss my long hair… Those were the days

Meetup with my secondary school mates… Those were the days

I Remember my pact with my dear sista, meng. We decided to don on our AC uniforms and pretend to be students for just a day. hahahahha…those were the days

Did i mention partying and more drinking…all the way till…i dunno when?? 😛 tsk… those were the days…

Helping silly ren ren do something in Feb 05…tsk… hahhaa those were the days…

CNY Came and went…kinda pulled me through till I got my first job… hahaha Those were the days…

Oops…getting drunk on the eve of CNY 05 – tsk…

Oh oh…learning how to wakeboard!!! 😛 Tat was my first lesson in Feb05

2006 was just hard to describe – it was bitter yet it was sweet. I made tons of great friends and met up with my all time greaties too. I was at my lowest (much to point and brink of depression) but I had the time of my life too. It is really hard to describe 2006 with a word but I’m glad whatever happened happened cos, nothing happened was too stupid to be called a regret. PLUS JOE BARRYMORE CAME TO TOWN, that really made my year! And yeah seriously I’m really glad that my friends were there when I was in the pits. They probably knew whatever I did then was wrong but they still comforted me, and stood by me. The ever deserving friends who were willing to come to my place at 2am in the morning. And even though I was so far far away from God then, I was so glad that he provided so much like friends who kept me sane and away from wanting to do something foolish. Really I’ve to thank God and thank God for all of my friends . You guys are a gem and i really really really appreciate you and thank you for running alongside with me in 2006. Man…really, and truly…those were the days…

 

An eventful 1.5 weeks. December 1, 2007

Filed under: Myself,Photos,Renzi-Ramblings — renzi @ 11:26 am

I’m soooooooo tired. In fact I think I’m more tired than when I first started off with my leave. But of course I won’t complain any further for the fear of being stoned. hahahaha

breathtaking After my yummy dinner w Avril and a few others and my first ENCHANTED movie the night before, I woke up bright and early to make my first trip to PULAU UBIN! It was my first time and yes…i’m a suaku no more! Well this lake took my breath away. The lake was CLEAR and well, I don’t suppose you’ll see this anywhere else in Singapore, no? Isn’t it beautiful?

Everyday is a winding road Yeah, I was trying to catch up with EuLee more often than not, especially when we were going up slopes.

Watching the roadTechniques of cycling Renzi’s techniques for cycling. First, try not to fall down…Second, if you do fall, do it with grace 😛

Ginseng?? It was a good time, especially when we dropped by this shop. This uncle was explaining to a few of us the medicinal values of certain roots, plants (like the roots in the pictures, apparantly they have qualities of cleansing the blood). VERY VERY INTERSTING. Sadly I reckon most of this people who lead really simple lives have so much knowledge but very few will be passed down to the next generation – most of it will remain with them in their grave. Well after that Eu Lee and I just went for lunch, not too bad. … very home-style kind…yummm hmm for more photos, click here.

The gals Jinx is back from oz! 🙂 Hahaha and for good! Anyway Let me try to recall what else happened before I talk about Sunday…Last thursday after cycling at Ubin, I went to watch Enchanted AGAIN with Eu Lee before meeting Karen for dinner. And on Friday, after packing my room, I also can’t remember what I did. Some holiday eh? ULGH…hate it when I’ve a mental block.

My Pseudo Well I could remember after church and all, I had dinner w the guys…Pseudo, Keith and Sara… 🙂

Monday I went out with Mrs Chng at Parkway. It was really a good time chatting and catching up after not seeing her for a few years. She was updating me about the new Secondary school etc… 🙂 After meeting her, I went to meet Honfei in Orchard (Yes I flew down to Orchard in a cab). Caught up with him before I flew down to East Coast to have coffee with EuLee since we couldn’t find any decent place to canoe.

Charms and I On Tuesday, I went out with Charms for tea after having lunch at Jean’s place. For both of these gals, I had a great time just chatting and reliving the good times. I was just telling Charms that this is really the life, just chilling and living some tai-tai life. Hur hur…

Yummyyy After meeting her, I met Roy for dinner at Tiong Bahru. Pity some shops were closed but somehow I chose somehting so simple and well, safe. It’s nice nonetheless! We proceeded to walk to Chinatown for some snack before walking from Chinatown to City Hall, to Bugis, To Lavender and finally to Geylang where I threw in the towel and took a *surpirse surpirse* cab back home.

Wednesday, I went out with the brother (after lunch with Jean again) at Tampines. Afterwhich, I went night cycling with EuLee. It was raining and it was a great feeling to cycle in the rain 🙂 (although I am falling a little sick right now)

Thursday, I helped EuLee out with his shoot in the morning before I went shopping at Vivo with Daniel. Daniel and I ended up at Plaza Singapura before walking to Old School and then to Little India before taking a cab to shop in Tanglin and our last stop – Tau Hui at Rochor 🙂 Mannn…I must remember to get photos from him 🙂

Friday, I had breakfast with EuLee, yeah, he’s the only one who’s free all the time man. Every freaking one else was working or had to study. hahahah…. After breakfast at Katong, I met Ken for a while before meeting for tea with EuLee AGAIN.

bestiesFinally ended my day at Raffles Hotel for the Blancpain launch. We then headed to Portsdown for supper before I met Danny, Sara and Keith for a drink at the former Ken’s 🙂

Eventful week and a half I must say… right now I’m really drained. TGIS! And Monday’s back to work…Guess although I couldn’t go ANYWHERE this time round, it was good catching up with some people who’ve been missign in my life for a few months/years. And I reckon I wasted so much money on cabs, enough to suffice as a holiday 😛 AHAHAHAHAHA

Back to work on monday 😦

 

Just one of those days. June 19, 2007

Filed under: Myself — renzi @ 1:25 pm

It’s just one of those days when everything just doesn’t make sense.

I guess it’s just one of those times when I have too much time to think and even allow myself to be overwhelmed by my thoughts, and be succumbed in doubt and everything negative.

I suppose, an idle mind’s really indeed the devil’s playground. 😦

 

Bitterness tastes awful. April 29, 2007

Filed under: I'm a slave for...........Work,Myself,Quote,Sermons — renzi @ 2:11 pm

“Bitterness profits no one. It definitely doesn’t profit me. It’s not part of my character. Sure, I went through it – but I’m human. But I overcame that.”

I’m sure James Miller had it worse because he served 25 years of his prison sentence and subsequently was cleared of rape because of new DNA evidence. This was quite inspiring to me at least and I’m glad I came across this in the newspapers today. And for Miller, he really got it worse. I cannot even try to imagine being in prison for a day (for one I’m still slightly afraid of the dark). His ability to forgive and forget amazes me.

Well… like I mentioned in my previous entry about my previous workplace, I’m over being bitter – it really doesn’t help anyone anyway. I’ve moved on already and well…it’s really no use harbouring anything against anyone. Ultimately if you do that, well… you’ll be the ONLY feeling the effects of feeling pissed at others. It’s really no use. Anyway in Pastor Yang’s sermon today, it really hit me and he challenged all of us for the 40-day-fast of not criticising. I will try.

🙂 Oh oh…last but not least (yes I’ve saved the best for last) Praise God! I’ve got a job! WhhhhhhEEEEEeeeee Heheh…

 

I finally did IT. April 27, 2007

Filed under: Bimbotic moments,Myself — renzi @ 11:29 am

When it comes to doing a certain act, I have, after much contemplation, decided to do it but backed out at the very last minute. This has happened countless times. I’ve seen so many of my friends, especially girls, succumb to it after some time but still because of my strong and firm beliefs (or the lack of it), I have managed to overcome temptation and not do it. However yesterday after so much coaxing and reassurance from a special someone, I finally agreed to it. I did IT. At first it was extremely painful – it was a struggle, especially the first shot. I had to fight back my tears because it was so sacred and even people like my mother told me that if I did it , I would regret it. Thoughts, especially about my mother’s advice, kept surging through my head and it was resounding but I thought I should do it because it was then or never.

As mentioned, I allowed the special someone to well, do it, and share the experience with me. Due to the fact that we’re creatures of habit, it was hard but as the act progressed, I grew more accustomed to it. In fact, I was actually enjoying it. Finally it was over. This experience was definitely emotionally, physically and mentally tiring.

I’d like to thank that special someone for helping me overcome it. That special someone is my hairdresser – thanks for cutting my hair 🙂 I love my hair now~!

 

Children can be cute but… April 26, 2007

Filed under: Family,Food,Myself,Recommendations — renzi @ 9:31 am

I really rather not have any. Every camp I go re-emphasises one very simple fact – that I don’t really want to have kids. I mean kids are fun and quintessentially innocent (at least more pure than well, adults) but… nah, I can’t really imagine having more kids around 24/7… Look at my bro – he’s 11 and I feel like wringing him in the neck almost everyday.

Yeah…I’ve been doing camps and now I look like… I’m…. Malay. I mean it’s not that I don’t like Malays or anything but I’m CHinese and I want to, well… look CHinese. Oh well 🙂

I had quite good Chinese Food at Tower Club – thank you to that special someone for the treat. It was quite stressful but I enjoyed the food nonetheless. The service was good and the food was better! Did I also mention the view? We had quite a good view of Singapore’s Citiscape and it was the first time being in the Tower Club when it was pissing outside. We were actually treated to the delightful display of occasional flashes of lightnight. 🙂

Go on…look for a member and try the food in that particular Dining Room 😉 It’s probably the same standard as Li Bai at Sheraton Towers – same concept (fine dining) and well the service is impeccable.
