The girl who laughed too much, too loud

The biggest struggles in life starts in the morning.

The biggest struggles in life starts in the morning.

This morning. My alarm rang at… 6am. (to swim, remember?)

I was already half awake then.

Last night’s sleep wasn’t exactly great. Hence I laid in bed, wondering if I should get up, or should I proscinate and swim at night instead (which I do not have the guts to do!).

Lethargy started to consume me, a little by a little.

I flipped over and adjusted myself into a more comfortable position. Sleeping is wayyyyy to tempting!

Then I decided to ask myself this question.

Do you want this day to start beautifully? or do you want this day to be like every other ordinary days?

I pondered a bit.

All these internal debates actually took some time!

So in the end, I’ve decided.

I dragged my butt out of bed, and went down for a swim.=)

Did not manage to swim a lot. BUT I am sooo proud of myself. =)

Fight obesity NOW!

Fighting Aging-obesity

Filed under: Bimbotism, thoughts, Updates — elyseeteo @ 4:07 am

Saturday late afternoon, we had an unexpected guest in the form of my one and only (male) big sister-Mel.

Sissy was working and me packing, then Mel decided to drop by our messy messy little new habitat.

Then we blew like 2 hours *cough* complaining and whining about growing fat! haha..

Yesyes, some of you that I only got to know recently => the past 2-3 years, might think otherwise. None of you sweeties could quite associate me to fat. But really. it is so true!

Mel is also looking really skinny. But we have definitely expanded a significant amount since JC/uni days.

Mel was spotting a trim trim waist of 23-24 inches, no kidding! But now.. heh.. I shouldn’t reveal his waist size.

Almost all of my JC classmates have..erhmm.. expanded. Well this is a class-ful of sportsmen and sportswomen!! (or perhaps…WAS) ha.

Even our fittest sportsman (shalln’t reveal their names.. don’t want to be bad to my dear friends!!) has his 8 very defined packs, reduced into a not-so-defined 6 packs.

Is it inevitable to go through this aging obesity?!?!?! Isn’t it bad enough to be aging?!?!=( *pouts*

On one hand, I can’t even eat the same amount as I used to eat. BUT alas, on the other hand, I put on weight much much easily.

Seriously. Can heaven be more lenient on us, aging people???

Pretty please.


So anyway, I have decided to swim at night. But the first time was with sissy, so it wasn’t so bad. Then I realised, swimming alone at night can be kind of scary, when it is really dark with almost no lighting at all!!

PLUS, I can’t sleep well with wet hair, for fear of waking up with bad hair the next day. SO SO SO, I’ve decided to swim every morning instead! Have to wake up at 6am though. Toughie!

and at night, if ever I can reach home earlier than 10pm, I will hit the gym!

YEAH that’s the plan.

I WANT my 24-inches back!!!!! Jiayou (to myself, ha)!

Love is in the air~

Filed under: Love, thoughts, Updates — elyseeteo @ 2:41 am

He said, ‘Do you want to see what I got for you?’

I shook my head lazily, thinking back at all the ridiculous things that he had gotten for me in the past (that are not in my wish list, seriously a wish list is there for a reason, as I am a difficult person to satisfy, i.e. almost no one will be able to buy things that I like independently).

He insisted. And insisted. And excitedly shoved this ball of stuff in front of me.

I opened up the layers of bags slowly, formulating how I am supposed to act after I see the disappointing gift (YES! I convienently assumed!=P).

There it is. That familiar cyan paper bag.

In it, lies perfectly wrapped with a white satin ribbon, that familiar cyan box.



Gosh, I’ve melted beyond words. I was lost for words.

He looked at me with his puppy eyes. And asked with a tinge of fear in his voice, ‘You don’t like it…?’.

Ha. Gosh, I must have scared him the previous times when he bought some things that came quite close to be labelled as crap.

I replied. With a kiss.

I didn’t say it then, but I am going to say it now…

Yes, dear. I truly ruly love it. 😉

PS: oh, I thought it was the same one as chenwei’s. but no, its the newer version, bigger.=)


Valentines came and went.

Last year, Chenwei and me were bitching about how cliche it is to give flowers for valentines. Sometimes men just need to be more creative?

As you bitch, unpleasant things will find their way to you. Like Chenwei had a huge bouquet sent to her office. And me, a bouquet to my office. And we had to hide our flowers in paperbags to avoid embarassment and cliche-ness.

So anyway last year, with no one to spend v-day with, I’ve spent v-day with my driving instructor=>learning driving!

Anyway. I realised I am still very traditional. I will still wish for at least a stalk for rose from time to time.=) There is no need for a huge bouquet for me! Surely, I do not want to burn a hole in the pocket of my dearest SO(significant other). A small gesture goes a long way with me. It is really the effort and thought that count! Life is so much rosier with romance in the air!!

But of course, the only flowers that I hope to receive, are from the person I want to receive the flowers from.

Haiz, but. This year, he did not get me any flowers. Someone else did. Marking my 10th year of valentines with flowers from men (friends don’t count here).

I thought I hated flowers for Valentines. But really. I just hated flowers from anonymous people or people I simply have no feelings for/dislike.

With the person you love beside you, I felt weird without flowers in my hands. heh.

But, oh well, the Tiffany’s necklace managed to rub off my sore spot in no time! (of course)


It is just too bad that everyone in the market is trying to leverage on this romance filled day. But this shouldn’t be the reason why we should feel negatively towards it, and stop celebrating love, just for the sake of celebrating!

I love you all! Friends and family too!


An unpleasant message follows:

You, I can be quite sure that you are reading this, though you are not promised not to.

You can continue to act as much as you want to.

You think that sending anonymous flowers is the way to go? what are you trying to achieve by your extremely freaky and gross card?

of course cleverly and merticulously made from magazine cut outs.

How many times do I have to tell you that it is extremely impossible between us? You are forcing me to be the meanest person who I do not want to be.

Seriously how stupid do you think I am? Fine if you want to act as if it was not you who is behind all this shit.

I simply hate you invading my privacy. I hate EVERY SINGLE gaze from you. They give me goosebumps WITHOUT FAIL.

My only wish? For you to disappear from my life. As much as I know that it is impossible for the situation that we are in. I hope to have as little contact with you as possible. I am extremely uninterested in talking to you, or even saying ‘Hi’. I am only keen on business stuff. NO unnecessary contacts are desired.

Thank you very much for understanding. I have my lovely life to lead.

FYI: I do not like blue roses anymore. *roll eyes*

To other readers:

Did I scare you all? I am usually a fluffy bunny, but someone just has to cross the line. Mentally unstable I think. A maniac I would say.

I really have no choice.

Happy Chinese new year peeps!

How’s everyone after this long long holidays?


Some ups and downs in this season.

Can’t really write a lot, my sissy wrote a pretty good piece here.

Hardships of moving…


its just left with moving the stuff, how bad can it be? haha, that is such an UNDERSTATEMENT. well, i guess there should be not much problems when u are shifting from a smaller place to a bigger one, but definitely not when it’s the other way round. some people just dont get it! ie. my folks.

everything has to be brought over. let me just share some stunning things that were found in the home: FIVE coffee makers, a cash register (which mom says we must keep so she ca use it when she opens a shop, like when??), stainless steel pots and woks– more than 10, about 20 i think, uncountable number of plastic containters – those cheap ones with the red screw on caps –think those that are used when u buy chinese new yr goodies, and many many things that i have never seen my mom use before in my whole life but she insists on brining them over. the list goes on..
