STRANGERS AND GRID GIRLS

remember when i was blogging about my sister's dinner at victoria station some time back? i mentioned this guy whom i thought was kinda cute, something along these lines

"oh gosh and btw at the area where i was sitting, there was this guy about my age with his friends, who was wearing a red football jersey with the number '7' and the name 'kiat' printed on it. 

he looked kinda cute but couldnt really see his face as his back was facing me and whats more, my dad was sitting smack in between me and him =.= talk about a damper.

so not to sound self absorbed but through out the dinner i think i overheard snatches of conversation like 'that girl over there' and he turned 180 to the back a few times during the dinner. whatever for, i have no idea. 

but he was really pretty cute lor! seriously!
so HEY, erm, 'kiat'!! if you're reading this, my name is Cheryl, i'm single and available, i love long walks on the beach, roses, expensive dinners, fast cars, romantic sunsets, i believe in true love and finding 'The One' and my number is...!!!"

*smacks self*
:D

now look at my cbox! 


does anyone believe that this guy is really who he says he is?
i know i dont. 
because it could be anyone! for all i know its some anonymous old hairy dude who dropped a comment there
not saying i have anything against people who are old, or hairy, but well! you know what i mean. :)

so moving on to other things, i saw just randomly surfing the net and i came across pictures of the korea F1 grid girls!

anyone have any opinion on their outfits?
notice that band on their pants which spirals up around their midriff and is connected to their top?

for one thing, the first time i saw this i was like
"wah how to go take off their pants to go toilet like that?"

A GLEEFUL AFFAIR


if you've never heard of this, you must've been living in a cave for the past year.

the show which took the world by storm and generated so much hype, about a high school glee club compromising a group of social misfits.

glee!

ok so throughout the whole show up till now, some of the characters in particular have been projecting a very wholesome image.

take for example, rachel berry.

really, tartan skirt with knee high socks? unless she's going for the scotsman look, i'd say that outfit is totally priceless.

and quinn fabray!
in the show, shes a devout catholic.

so yes this post has a point and here it is!

Glee shocker: Corey Monteith, Dianna Agron and Lea Michele leave little to the imagination in the November edition of GQ Magazine
i introduce you to the very racy, provocative, skin-baring cover of the latest issue of GQ magazine!

boy was i delighted to have stumbled upon it. you can view more pictures here.





doesnt cory monteith look pleased? :D

is lea michele putting on a convincingly enraptured expression just for the camera, or is she just as smitten by him?

Girls gone wild: but fans have commented that Cory Monteith keeps his clothes on throughout the shoot
this looks very...we're gonna have a threesome later sorta thing.

and i observe too that lea michele has lost quite a bit of weight!
hmm.

Bare essentials: Glee's Lea Michele leaves little to the imagination in the photoshoot for GQ Magazine
*in breathy high pitched fluttery voice*
"come and get me, boys!"

if i may, i think she does look a tad slutty here.

like someone who'd go around seducing prepubescent teenage high school guys, and they'd be so bowled over by her that they'd be to her as children to the pied piper.


however, i noticed one thing, that lea michele sexes it up way more for the camera, even though in the show diana gron plays a much sexier character.

and the public, not without reason, has been pretty stirred up by this issue, with many of them complaining that glee has become oversexualised.
however, in my opinion, the whole issue has just been blown out of proportion, as usual, by people who have nothing better to do and love to create a fuss.

hello? the characters in there are like, what, above 25? cory monteith is almost 30!
doesnt that make them eligible to be viewed as adults and have the rights to make their own decisions?
in my opinion, if there are people who dont like these pictures, then just dont buy the magazine!
its as simple as that.
GQ was never intended for kids anyway, with the said magazine targeting a young adults market.

and so i shall now continue watching my episode of Gossip Girl, which has been fully loaded by the time taken  to create this superficial update. :D

LONG TIME AGO


so last thursday was my sister's 16th birthday!

we celebrated by going to victoria station at taipan! gosh, the last time i went there was like 5 years ago?


family pic


sis and i. 
yes i know we look nothing alike.
and nuts my eyes look so odd here. like i have lazy eyes.
(if you know what lazy eyes are)

so, without further ado, got down to the serious business of ordering our food. :D

a page from their menu. nice!

complimentary fluffy warm buns.


mum's salad.
and thats another awesome thing about dining at a place like victoria station, they peel the prawns for you.

oh haha and one thing you didnt know about me ; if im ever served prawns with their shells still on, i just eat them whole, with the exception of the head of course. cant be bothered to tediously take the time and patiently peel the damn thing off. 

btw, did you now that prawn shells contain chitin, which burns fat?
yes they do. 
which gives me all the more reason to be lazy and not peel the shells off my prawns. :D


was sitting in front of a mirror.

oh gosh and btw at the area where i was sitting, there was this guy about my age with his friends, who was wearing a red football jersey with the number '7' and the name 'kiat' printed on it. 

he looked kinda cute but couldnt really see his face as his back was facing me and whats more, my dad was sitting smack in between me and him =.= talk about a damper.

so not to sound self absorbed but through out the dinner i think i overheard snatches of conversation like 'that girl over there' and he turned 180 to the back a few times during the dinner. whatever for, i have no idea. 

but he was really pretty cute lor! seriously!
so HEY, erm, 'kiat'!! if you're reading this, my name is Cheryl, i'm single and available, i love long walks on the beach, roses, expensive dinners, fast cars, romantic sunsets, i believe in true love and finding 'The One' and my number is...!!!

*smacks self*
:D

anyway! back to the topic!


dad's sizzling steak


and the steam fogs up the lens of my camera. :S


bro's fish and chips.


sis's victoria steak


my  mushroom steak.

this is my first time eating steak in a long, long, looooooong time.


washroom break = camwhore.

because you see, i havent posted up any pictures of myself here for such a long, long time, that i feel such a ravaging urge to do so!


sister. 


reflection in the window


plates well cleaned of their food  :)


family pic ; blurry 


another one. nothing to shout about, but still better than the first one.


yesss more pics of me :D


feeding that narcissistic need 


brother sitting in the driver's cabin at one of the train carriages they have at VS.

we then proceeded to secret recipe for desserts!
yes i know we're such gluttons :D


sugar packets


oreo cheesecake, pecan butterscotch. 
i dont really like pecan butterscotch but my mum loves it.


bro sitting like he owns the place, lol.


american chocolate brownie.

if u ever want to eat a brownie at secret recipe, forget about the other type of chocolate brownie that they have available. (cant remember the name) they have 2types of brownies, i've tried both and this one is the best.


sis : why all the pics you take of me so cacat one??
me : not my fault the camera cant make you look good.

again, our plates scraped clean of their servings.

and so i shall end this post with another picture of...ME! :D

THAT'S LIFE

everyone in my house is now sleeping, with me sitting alone downstairs in front of the lappie with my fingers endlessly tapping away at the keyboard.
.
so whats keeping me awake?
.
well, i admit that there are things that are bothering me, like annoying flies buzzing around a delicious apple im eating, but me being me, i just swat them away and continue to enjoy my apple, hah. :D
in case you dont get it, im likening the pesty bothersome things in life right now to the flies, and life to the apple. :)
.
btw i should warn you that this is another 'deep' post so go away if you're looking for light hearted entertainment! gosh and on an afterthought, where has my penchant for silly, frivolous, entertaining updates gone to? i miss you come back! sorry if the tone of my blog these days is taking on a more contemplative and subdued one though.
.
in reference to my previous post, i'd say that more and more stuff is happening, most of it not very welcome. but oh well, thats life. like i said once before,
.
GOD GIVES US BITTER SO THAT WE WILL KNOW SWEET.
.
in other words, negative happenings are there for a reason. in my opinion, they serve to make us appreciate further the sweetness of certain things in life, like erm..flowers. erm erm puppies. erm erm erm sleep. good food. etc etc.
.
and it is when i look past the dirty stains that obscure the windows of my outlook, to the light outside that shows the beauty of life and all its vastness and glory, that i truly see how much i am blessed, and am in no position to complain. i have a loving family, a roof over my head, clothes on my back, food on the table, a bed to sleep in, and many other things which other people can only dream of. who am i to ask for more?
.
i know my Saviour, and i know i am loved. nothing else holds any gravity of the least.
.
looking around me, im also really glad i have people i can confide in, and really, they are the only ones who matter.
 .
.
"do what you want, and say what you feel, because those who matter don't mind, and those who mind, dont't matter.".

and i especially love my best buds arief and chai chi. :)
.



.
people i've been close to for like what, 5 years now?
our bonds to run really deep :)
you know there's the hi-and-bye friends, whom you respond to on a friendly basis, and the general acquaintances, surface friends, good friends, and best friends?
.
i guess that i do have my own circle of people, but mention best friends and these 2 are the one whom i'd name right away without any fraction of hesitation. they've been with me through the shittiest times of my life, from back when we were in high school sporting squeaky clean white shoes.
.
if you know me personally, you would know that i might be outgoing and social on the surface, but when it comes to really getting to know a person on a deeper level, i prefer to watch from a distance and observe them before making the decision to get closer to them. and i dont understand how some people can just jump right in with people whom they even know and straight away get to being BFFs. any wonder why most of these relationships fizzle out, or even turn sour?
.
oya not to mention ben as well
dayum almost forgot him :)
.

.
im thankful for crystal, nigel, rachel, and numerous other beautiful people in my life. thanks yo.
.
i've said this before, and i'll say it again. i do not, repeat, DO NOT, care if there are people out there who disapprove of me, or do not like me. who are they to me anyway? am i living my life for them? will my happiness in 10 years time depend on them? so why should i bother?
.
Galatians 1 : 10
"am i now trying to win the approval of men, or of God? or am i still trying to please men? if i were still trying to please men, i would not be a servant of Christ."
.
that being said, i dont intend to be nasty to anyone of the like either. id say that im just not very bothered by whatever small petty issues in the past which you might still be holding against me, and its your loss anyway for spending that time, energy, and emotion still sulking about it, when what you really SHOULD do is to just grow up and get over it,  and move on.
.
but seriously, someone did come and tell me that he felt that he couldnt get along with me. bless him for at least having the straighforwardness and guts to do so. that i can accept, and i asked him, "what exactly is it about me that would you make you feel that way?"
he replied "the way you think and the things you say i guess."
keep you in mind that im not even remotely close to this particular person and only interact with him on a surface basis.
so i asked, "what specifically do you mean ways of thinking and things i say?"
to which he replied "i dont know"
well a fat lot of good that does! .
.....
nevertheless, i really wouldnt mind if someone were to come up to me and tell me that they do not like me, and why. at least i would know, and provided your reasons for not liking me arent 'i dont like your face' or 'because you have small eyes' i guess id say that im pretty much open to criticism, and would even try to change if i felt that you had substance in your sayings. but for people who have an itch to scratch with me, just because, for not particular reason, then your disliking me bothers me as much the weather in switzerland does. which is not at all. :D
.
obstacles are part and parcel of life, whether anyone likes it or not, and im jolly well going to face them with a smile on my face, strength in my heart, and a spring in my walk.
i will get through this, i will. i know, because He told me so. :)
.
Proverbs 3 : 5-6
"trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding ; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight."
