爱的履历表2006

若隐若现。
好像得到了,
又莫名的失去了。

了解,
了解了失恋的滋味。

抱歉,
抱歉对过去的你们不够体贴。

矛盾,
矛盾是想结婚却定不下心来。

发现,
发现自己已不像从前纯情。

伤心,
伤心不知道自己失去了什么。

怀念,
怀念单纯简单的爱。

寻找,
寻找我的简单可爱聪明的他。

所以
所以明年我要定下来!*

简单是我的坚持。
勇敢是我的信念。
感性是我的权力。
幸福是我的终点。
******************

*
大家不要担心:
不是结婚哦 (太快了吧!)。是定下心。哈哈,不要被吓着了。

Week 2 of clovers!
Flora is growing some green stuff. Minnie has no progress at all! gosh. heh.

2006, retrospectively

Filed under: reflections, thoughts — elyseeteo @ 3:16 am

Today is the last day of work for this year!

How do I feel?

well. I’ve officially worked 1 year in Singapore! thanks, but no thanks to my poor customer, else I would be in Shanghai now. I wonder when will they get out of their shit? Ah.. politics. I shall leave those to those smarty pants in power suits.

Played a lot recently. =) of course not forgeting working hard too! Will post up pictures later. but now first.

How has 2006 been for me?
Let this organised freak organise her thoughts into different categories.

In no particular order of importance. I am just writing those that are easy to write first.

Health
Was really fat when I came back from France. I think I have knocked off like… 2 kgs since?

Lol. Actually I am not even sure about that. but!
I have:
-woke up and run at 6am in the morning. Like. Twice! (which I felt desperately fat=P)
-took up yoga. Loving it! But doing it only when I have the time only though. like around twice a month yup.
-Bought a tennis racquet but I haven’t played tennis yet! (gosh!, not even once!) will do after I shift into our gorgeous new condo!=)
-Got a pink(!!) yoga mat! for doing yoga at home:) I like. But I actually usually only end up doing my favourite positions only:P ha.
-Wanted to take up ballet again. Contacted the ballet teacher (delicia’s friend) but haven’t got the time to do it yet!!=(

-I started to make vitamins every weekday at least! (ribena at least!!)
-Brought cereals to the office(last week! ha) to have a healthier breakfast. A good switch from the curry puffs and the breakfast mee that I so love!!! ha. =P

-I started to eat better also. I stopped the habit of over-eating (which used to be my favourite hobby! scary rite? I know!)

Career

Well, I’ve learnt a couple of new things regarding the transport sector.

Worked more than 28 hours for the first time. Experiencing the tough life of the IT industry:'(

ha.

Went solo on some proposals.

Did some self reflections and planned for my next career move.

So I did:
-Started preparing for my GMAT. aiming to complete it by Jan 2007. Application for Master by 2007.
-Worked on mastering my 3rd language. French. Hmmm.. need more work on this for working professionally french. yup.
-Languages will be an advantage for the hospitality sector. So on top of french, I borrowed jap cds from noel, and bought a jap book from kino. Also, bought a korean learning language package from borders (cos there is a -20% discount 😛 ha). Oh well. all untouched. Haven’t started yet!
-Did some research on hospitality and also, got a kind-of agreement to work for a great hotel after my bond!=) But still looking, =P more options is always better!

Family
Well.
-Analysed/planned my parents’ finances
-Analysed/planned my parents’ insurances, to make sure the old ones are well taken care off:)
-House hunt for new habitat! Lotsa time spent. including fengshui and stuff.
-Now designing and renovating the house. PHEW!
-Successfully made time for family every weekend! yay.

-accompanied mum for her facials.
-shopping with mum. and also with sissy=)

-oh. love spending time with sis!! (we just shopped like crazy yesterday. ha. You do not want to see us in action. Believe me:P ha)

The amazing thing about me and sis is. We are probably the closest and sweetest (*cough*) siblings around!!

ha.

It is really rare for people to be like us. or even our family.

How many of you have family ‘meetings’? to discuss goals, updates and how you can support each other?
How many of you have yahoogroups for your family?
How many of you have a family wallpaper on your computers?=P

ha.

With sis:
How many of you lose sleep while chatting with your sibling?
How many of you know and met most of your siblings’ friends?
How many of you have common friends with your siblings?
etc. yadda yadda.

I love my family a lot.

HA. don’t be too envious ok?=P

(sis helping dad put lip balm)

Even zuzu’s mum is envious ha.=P

Of course there are difficult times. In fact, we have been going through difficult times and more difficult times might be coming. But whatever it will be. We will go through it as a family.

This is what is important.=)

Personal development
-Coached adults
Overcame my own limiting belief that… (laughable, but true) I look kiddy, not serious about anything and also …ha.. bimbotic. Ha. need more work on this! Hey, I am being honest.
-Coached teenagers
Broke my personal belief that it is hard to communicate/gain rapport with teenagers, especially at the rebellious age.
-Coached kids
I do not believe in the ‘reward-giving’ way of teaching kids. Kids are not monkeys/dogs. And I believe I’ve achieved this personal goal of being able to handle children without daggling any carrots.=) *smiles*
-Volunteered at ulu panda
It really opened my eyes to the issues met by other singaporeans that are not in my social circle. Yup. I liked the exposure.=)

Other personal stuff
-started to analyse my insurance.
-Planned my finances
-Started investing

-Expanded VM. Planned for the next expansion next Jan 2007.
Lotsa work. Non-work work. I need to keep my focus!!! and stay motivated.
After the next jan 2007’s expansion, will work hard to keep it stable before expanding! Do not want to expand beyond our abilities.
-Continued with my MU stuff.
There are some things I have in the pipeline for this. I plan to work more on it next year. yes! Need to read more books on this!!!!

Character building

I want to still work on being more:
-compassionate towards others
-be more mindful of the people around
-appreciate all the kindness and goodness showered on me by the people around. I love you peeps!~
IMG_0973
my appreciation to u~

Am quite happy with my time management. But could do better, cos the earlier part of the year, I feel I committed myself too much that I can handle.=)

Resulting in tiring out myself. yup.

Ah… FINALLY.

Love

Next post lar! ha. This is already another annoyingly long post!

Indecent SMSes (and A night at the cinema)

Filed under: Love, Outings, Updates — elyseeteo @ 1:27 am

Is everyone doing well?

I sure hope so!

If not, you might feel better now, after reading this post.

One of the bad habits of my male buddies is:

They tend to send me the smses that were supposed to be for their girlies.

Hence making me laugh big time always:P

ha. well, today I’ve received one(or rather SIX!) lovey dovey sms(es), and they are not for me.(sob sob, why oh why are they not for me!?!) This guy only has himself to blame for being so blur right?=P

Hey you, I know you are reading this. No worries! I will censor your name ok?;)

Besides, good stuff like this is meant to be shared amongst friends??;)

Agree?

If all this crappy convincing talk doesn’t work, you know in your heart, that I love you yah? =)

*SMILES*

OK. enough of the mushy things and down to business!

The smses I received today are nowhere comparable to the previous wrong sms I’ve received, which went like this:

“Goodnight my darling beauty. U are so e best for me. I could never dream of another girlfriend. Je t’aime.”

This morning’s set of 6 consecutive smses are sufficient to provoke each and every goosebump on me!!

ha. *giggles*

A little RA, so the kids below 18 should probably go read some other blogs?;P

with my comments in brackets!


Morning! … I don’t wanna sound like a bug, but i’ve been thinking of you a lot(awww so sweet!!) … And i know you’ve been super busy, and you can barely find time for

yourself,so i don’t wanna steal you away from those important things… But almost everytime i’m alone in my room, i think about lifting you on to my

bed and smelling and kissing your neck for hours and hours(really? this only?=P Come on! I know you can do better!!=PpP) … And everytime i lie in my bed,i can imagine you in my arms, sleeping in your princess pose … And when the lights are turned off,i can’t help thinking about the wicked, naked things(OMG!! i think we need the details please!!!wicked huh.. *Respect*) we do to each other that make us both squeal in joy…

I know you have a lot on your mind and so i’ll wait for you, whenever you wanna spend some alone time … I just wanted you to know that i really cherish every

moment of the private time we enjoy … 🙂 (okok, we get it, you enjoy the making out sessions ok?? duh! haha)

WOW phew!

That’s quite a bit to type on my keyboard, imagine Mr Squeal-in-joy smsing the whole thing????=P

Not bad right?

I wonder do girls appreciate smses? or they prefer the face-to-face approach? or via the phone?

For me, hmmm I like all of the above!

I mean. if there is only declaration of love and all those mushy lovey dovey talk via the phone and face-to-face, there seem to be something missing.. (these are the 2 approaches that I experience more frequently)

Loving and affectionate smses are not frequent.

Perhaps men find it difficult to write mushy things like my 2 dear friends above?

But please do! Because for us, besides it being awfully sweet, we can re-read the messages when we are bored, upset with you, or just going through a depression.

And these messages are perfect if you are not able to spend a lot of time with her. At least she gets reminded that you love her and care for her;)

SO, go and sms away guys!! If you wish, you can always direct your smses to me, and i can vett (*cough* i really mean publicize) them for you! 😉

~love is in the air~

********************************

The movie was…. kind of stupid.

A night at the cinema.

I am not complaining! Its nice to watch a movie in a cinema of 500(??) knowing approx half of the people there! =)

plus of course. *cough* free is good. ha.

*waves* Nice seeing you cuties(fifi, sera, joyce..huiting..etc.etc…YY..danny..roger..rossy..lydia..weitang..arul..etc..raine-jie..YZ..rach..xf..tracy..pete..david..MC..joelle..noelle..alex..alicia..brenda..eldhi..yiyan..javier..daniel, basically everyone k?) there!!!

Except for. *cough* Cath. Yes she gave me a xmas gift. *hugs!* with a note that says something like:
“Janine loves Alex only, but I love Janine.=) Maybe I should love F**** instead..yadda yadda.. more senseless banter…”

Ha. Let me faint! what an incoherent friend indeed!

***********************************

Had a good heart-to-heart talk with him til late! 12.40am?

It was nice and I enjoyed it=)

Close and honest heart-to-heart talks with friends are amazing!;)

A lovey-dovey-sugary-warm-and-fluffy christmas, says the sour old hag

Filed under: Innocence, Love, reflections, thoughts, Updates — elyseeteo @ 8:25 am

Yesterday night, I was doing my routine skincare and bodycare. (=P)

So I casually switched on the TV, and I got sucked into this fabulous show.

Oh, perhaps you all might not find it amazing. But i just love the simplicity and the warm feeling that this cute movie eludes.

Mr Deeds
Plot summary (googled):
When Longfellow Deeds, a small-town pizzeria owner and poet, inherits $40 billion from his deceased uncle, he quickly begins rolling in a different kind of dough. Moving to the big city, Deeds finds himself besieged by opportunists all gunning for their piece of the pie. Babe, a television tabloid reporter, poses as an innocent small-town girl to do an exposé on Deeds. Of course, Deeds’ sincere naiveté has Babe falling in love with him instead. Ultimately, Deeds comes to find that money truly has the power to change things, but it doesn’t necessarily need to change him.

So. Babe (a big city girl) pretended to be a simple girl, who doesn’t take alcohol (wow.. doesn’t that sound like me?!? I wonder if the alcohol part is really that unbelieveable?!) She was out to cheat Deeds, so as to get the first hand tabloids.

After which she realised she fell for this simple minded small town guy. (deeds is not really a poet as described in the plot summary, he is more like… hmm.. His dream is to write greeting cards, and his greeting messages kinda all sucked)

I don’t know if you all might agree with me. But there is something irresistable about simple guys with a good heart.

As simple as a piece of white paper.

Untainted.

But sadly. This kind of men/people will not survive well in the society that we live in. Man’s natural instinct to the survival of the human race, is to become defensive, cynical, skeptical.

Still. I will love to meet.

Someone who is so purely, naturally innocent, inside. Even if he is smart, intelligent and shrewd on the outside.

And I once thought that he is one…
****************************
Oh, can I complain? This Christmas is so full of lovey-dovey-feel-good movies, in the cinemas AND on TV.

Please give this sour, old hag a break can!?!?!??!

You lovey dovey people can jolly well cuddle and make your OWN MOVIE.

WHY do you have to make the whole world watch lovey-dovey-sugary movies with you?!?

JUST because your stupid lives evolve around your love, doesn’t give you the right to be so self-centred and assume everyone feels the same way!

WAHHAHAA…

So said the sour, old hag.

(in case you don’t know, this is a joke ok? This is probably my first christmas since 1997 without a warm cuddle ok?!? =( )
***************************

Christmas day.

I received:

“Darling je t’aime”

And I have this feeling.

That my next christmas.

Will be a lovey-dovey-sugary-warm-and-fluffy christmas. =)

Ending with me all curled up in someone’s embrace.

PS:
Oh.. hmmmm…

Have to find someone first, I guess?

=P

Where are you, someone? 😉
