i shall now entitle my posts with words of greeting. see how many i can come up with. is interesting self-challenge.

i am now trying to while away 40 minutes before dinner with family (seafoot! lawbster! klamz! prons!) and i cannot take a nap cos i will never wake up cos TODAY I CYCLED 40 KILOMETRES with naomin and nat. the backside is a past memory, while the face is one that glows red and cannot be forgotten. oh god. the metaphor SUCKS HARHARHAR. but. how to not get ass cancer as cyclist, i do not understand. today i FELT THE BURN for approx 4 hours sia. thighs burnt to crisp alr.

but! cycling in the changi area is beautiful. scenery with pine trees and willows and just all that bloody flora with the blue sea in the background spotted with the white sails of boats and the blue sky spotted with its own white clouds..... was vairy nahce. was amazing how greece-like the scenery was. my country surprises me very occasionally, and when it does i am grateful that there is so much goodness to come back to.

naomin and nat, you are part of the goodness hor, just so you know.

ok i am uncharacteristically mushy. i think is cos got endorphins.
also, cos got lobster in the near future.


ok nothing else to say. shit. still got 26 minutes to kill. shall go rummage in fridge. baibai.


hello. 1.21am and i have to wake up in 6 hours cos i must go to tampines to cycle with nat and naomin. but i cannot sleep, so here i am.

first of all, a shout out to yogi. THANKS FOR THE NICE COMMENT. haha thanks for... having same brain as me la hor. cafe del mar soon ok thanks. and inebriation at unusual hours. :D

had a very nice night. went to tampopo to have KyUsHu BlAcK PoRk RaMeN wItH tAsTy eGg oH gOd with jerrine and felicia. it was... too good to be true. soup boil for 2 days leh, how to not be aWeSoMe. the waiter came to clear my almost empty bowl but i shouted NO at him cos i wanted to finish eVerRy LaSt DrOp and he looked at me... fearfully. i scare myself sometimes.

wed night went to sleepover at naomin's house cos must watch germany vs turkey. atiqah was there too, was nice talking to her again. before the match, we were made to watch the heinous movie 'Bats' cos naomin HAD to see the ending, learnt german bridge (christine must teach you, must.) and took a nap. next morning, woke up late, went to eat kaya toast and egg, then bummed around er, simei ntuc with naomin while her mother shopped around. the heartlandless of my life knows no bounds. i love it.

i love naomin cos she thinks i'm funny even when i'm not.
*call naomin on handphone*
me: hi naomin. do you eat cherries.
naomin: HAHAHAHA. yes.
me: do you also eat longans.
me: 0.o very funny meh.

ok actually quite funny la. BUT CONTEXT: i bought fruits to eat at her house during match. not call her.... to ask her about her fruit preferences. that one a bit.. insane la HOR. ok evidently, am very bored now.

tonight over ramen me jerrine and felicia expanded on our spinster commune idea. i think i have found enough interested parties to form a spinster community. then.... we will have to call each other by our spinster names, to foster a sense of belonging and camaraderie. for example, my name will be... Spinster Sam la. and jerrine will be.... Spinster Jerrine. ok not much imagination, but spinsters hor, please forgive. then..... we will worship food, cos no men in our lives. every sunday we... dress in sunday best and go to tampopo and pray to the black pork kyushu ramen la k.

ok. this has been a very pointless and nonsense post. so i shall go to sleep. goodnight, world.

long time coming.

haven't blogged since i came home, cos life has been very nice and nua and simple.

caught up with friends, old, new, random and evergreen. eaten everything i have been craving for, and have found even more things to crave when i'm gone. marveled at the wonders of public transport. found new corners of singapore that i have never been to before. IS GUHD STUFF.

today, i met nat again for the gabazillionth time and we concluded we are disgusting lovers, and that it is difficult to find things to do on a friday night as two single girls together. also, she brought me to eat malay food at the railway station. inn't that sumthin?! lunch was beef noodles at golden mile, and chinchow in glass bowls cos andrew says that the glass makes it all taste better.

wed went to mambo, which was again, an eventful night. it will take some time and new shoes before i set foot into that place again. i was verily my parents' daughter that night, donning mother-of-pearl pearls of mother and father's ubiquitous goldlion belt. the best part of the night was pre-gaming and photo-whoring before everything went curly, and eating beehoon goreng at nopokitellyou roti prata stall after the curliness at an ungodly hour in the unlikely company of christine abel and er, eddie.

ok and now i retreat to watch the beauty that is ryo nishikido. look at this, WHY GOT SUCH MEN WITH WHOM I AM NOT ACQUAINTED. the heart aches.

of greece and passports

so i am back from my very unnecessarily truncated holiday. greece was AMAZING. how can such a beautiful country exist, i know not. to recount 12 days of fun would be vomit-inducing, so i shall do this in point form.

first, the bad:
- stepped into entrance hall, was accosted by two bearded, dubious looking men who identified themselves as police. i thought they bluff, so i said 'no, you are not the police'. to cut long and embarrassing story short, they brought me to interrogation room and went through my luggage, while i stood to one side very mortifiedly. greece police saw my kahpuang leh. fainted.
- almost pickpocketed in the streets
- lost freaking passport and wallet.
- the overabundance of cats
- the stupid exchange rate of the euro
- extremely horny men

however, there was many many of the good to eclipse the bad:
- the greek gods walking around the streets
- the food, oh the food. moussaka and souvlaki and grilled pork and lamb and eggplants
- the sugar cube houses and winding passages and insanely blue beaches at mykonos
- the very international clubs at mykonos
- watching the sunset at a seaside bar while sipping on a strawberry margarita at little venice
- making friends with random (good looking) greek men: most memorably, manos.
- cooking very rudimentary meals in our hotel rooms
- old greek men
- riding a donkey in santorini (THAT IS MY LIFE DREAM FULFILLED, RIGHT THERE.) up a cliff overlooking the sea.
- swimming in hot springs near a volcano
- walking on a volcano and inhaling the sulphur
- watching the sunset in Oia
- playing cards for 8 hours on a ferry
- traipsing through the acropolis and being awed by the ancientness of it all
- rambling through the ruins at delphi
- sitting at a cafe appreciating the beauty of the santorini cliffs while sipping on greek iced coffee
- watching sex and the city on a rooftop at Plaka overlooking the acropolis.
- rolling around on black volcanic sand at Perissa, Santorini to emulate muachee.
- nuaing on a beach for 6 hours while staring at little spanish boys

so, all in all, it is excellent trip. is like journey of life. we really do everything lor, go police station also got. go singapore consulate also got. win.

photos soon, when rachel gets back and i can steal photos from her camera. cos i have... none. :(

so now while my entire family is in russia, i am rotting at home without a phone. that is not to say i hate it. I LOVE HOME. in the airport when i was finally surrounded by singlish good and proper, i kept ahrmchio-ing to myself. i love it.

today went to east coast with aunt and cousins for dinner. I DIED. first time in forever i had lala and stingray and hokkien mee and satay beehoon and oh luak and grilled chicken wings oh god it was good. AND I STILL HAVE A LOT MORE TO CONQUER. singapore food, i worship thee. walking around east coast after dinner was very nice also, i love the smell of home air! and ppl in fbts and pok clothing made me very happy.
