NAUTICAL STRIPES

laidback casual, yet fashionable, this dress is a steal for the price its going at! navy blue with thin white stripes, it's so easy to match and wear! not to mention the totally sweet puffed sleeves and sweetheart neckline which flatters all. ;D

perfect for college, shopping, or a day out with the girlfriends. pair it with a pair of flats and it's comfort without compromise! :)

LET BYGONES BE BYGONES

so 2011's barely a few hours away, and while i'm eagerly anticipating with bated breath what lies in store for me in the year ahead, i cant help but to reminisce and smile at how utterly UH-MAY-ZING this year has been.

without doubt, this year has been by far, the most eventful, interesting, productive, happiest, year of my life. the freaking best year i have had, since ever!

and while i may have gained a pound or two (or three or four) this year, i guess that's all because of how happy i have been! seriously, all i can remember this year is all the laughter, happiness, fun, and adventure that i've had. no memory at all of tears, sadness, misery, or depression. if they did exist at all this year, they were fleeting and quickly replaced with a smile. :)

so, take a walk with me through the memories of this year, will you?

kicked off my 2010 with RBS, which was a blast! 56 days of absolute awesomeness! met so many wonderful new people and had so much fun and new experiences there!

BEWARE

something really freaky happened today, and im still banging my head on the wall for letting it happen.

today i was in pyramid, window shopping and people watching, just like any other regular day. i'd window shopped to the max and was hungry already, so my sis and i went to grab a bite to eat. at the restaurant, there were two middle eastern guys who were sitting at the table next to us.

they looked something like this


alright, so maybe im exaggerating a slight bit and they werent exactly osama bin laden. anyhow, they were middle eastern guys in their forties with mustaches, you get the picture.

something like this would be a nearer hit, but add on about 20 years, thick glasses, a heavier, greying moustache, and longer, greying hair.


so i was sitting there minding my own business and they were outright STARING at me. what the hell? i felt really uncomfortable and stubbornly directed my gaze anywhere but at them.

suddenly, one of the walked over to our table with his phone and gestured for me to take a picture of him and his friend. slightly bemused, i hesitantly obliged. they smiled, the camera went flash, i handed the phone back to them, and sat down again.

however, they STILL kept staring at me, and i continued to respond in the same way which i had before, by not looking in their direction.

and then, barely a few minutes after, the same guy came over with his phone. he pointed at his friend and said something to me in a language which was so heavily accented that i couldnt make out the meaning of his dialogue.

i enquired if it was his friend who wanted to take a picture this time. he shook his head, mumbled more of his intangible vocabulary, and pointed at me, then himself, then me again, while showing me his phone, while saying something sounding like "you...me...picture?"

i stared at him with my mouth agape. "you, want to take a picture with me?"

my thoughts were a jumble, not comprehending fully what i was being asked of. i was so surprised, that i stood there for a few moments with my mouth hanging open and eyes popping out of their sockets, going "UHHHH..UUHHHHH....."


and apparently, the creep took that for a 'yes'.

he plonked himself down on the seat beside me, waaaaayy to close for comfort, looking disturbingly pleased, put his arm on my shoulder (WTF?????!!!!!!!!) and smiled for the camera. 

his friend pressed the button, and then he got up, smiled and thanked me, and left.

it might sound like nothing much, but it was a direct intrusion of my personal space, not to mention downright freaky. the whole thing happened so fast that i was dazed and didnt have time to react decisively and intelligently. as my friends say, why do i always become a victim of such things? X(

STOP

haha super random short post!

so i'm sitting here in front of the computer now just like any other day, and about 10 minutes ago my sister walked into the room holding a cupcake in her hand. me being lazy to go to the kitchen and get one myself asked her for a pinch.

me : gimme a pinch of the cupcake!
sis : no.
me : i wanna pinch!
sis : no.
me : I WANNA PINCH!
sis : ok! *gives me a pinch on my arm*
me : -__-

HEYLO

how's everyone been after the festive weekend? 

i for one had a really hectic weekend, but the christmas spirit wasnt as prevalent as it was compared to previous years. maybe it was because quite a few of the people i usually spend christmas with werent around, and because there werent as many christmassy activities such as carolling and whatnots going on this year as well.

and sheesh i just realized that i didnt take many pictures during christmas so that sucks yo. well anyway, remember a few posts ago i said i would be going for youth camp? 

i didnt take many pictures THEN either as we were so busy with activities so here are pictures from here and there. :)

me getting off the bus when we first arrived - i look so fed up and grumpy haha!

the swimming pool.

the indoor basketball court!!
that's isaac btw.

the field, albeit a small one.

all the campers

someone had a birthday at camp :)

6 year old jamie ; awww :)

ian and ivan.
brothers bonding, awww. :D

the guys comparing the size of their muscles, tsk tsk.

dinner time.

during one of the games.

whats that they're preparing??

disgusting max!

we actually had to EAT that as one of the challenges of the teambuilding session.
it's a mixture of cencaluk, condensed milk, chocolate spread, strawberry jam, sardines, and curry powder.

utterly gut-wrenching.
but being the smart one that i was, i quietly took in my portion, then went behind the building and spat the whole thing out. 

li che eating it. 
can you say YUCK?

but we campers got our payback!

brian and ivan, the ingenious game masters who came up with the idea for all the games, including the 'eat the disgusting mixture of things' game, got a taste of their own medicine when they were forced to eat the vile concoction themselves.

pictures from the last day when everyone was camwhoring!

the guys showing off :)

gosh aren't they tall?

isaac, whom i've known for like, 10 years?

:)

yeah i know im short.
oh well, all the better to get a boyfriend then, since there are hardly any guys my height. :)

brandon, who buffed up like crazy this year.

well, so that's my mishmash of random camp pictures. 

guess i'll have to wait a little longer for the christmas pictures (if there are any at all) since i didnt take much pictures. 

till then. :)
