Don't you just love it when you can do that?

Abbie The Antidote

Who can actually be unhappy when there is Abbie?

Who can resist it, when one says, 'Hello, baby darling!', and she gives a big beautiful smile?

Abbie loves to play with my bangles.



This is the chair she sits in when she eats. You know the kind which looks like a normal square stool, but when you turn it, I think 90 degrees, it becomes a baby chair?
Very old school!
I sat in that very same chair when I was her age. See the scotch tapes?
Very durable. Good buy, must buy.. I wonder if they are still selling it.



Then she throws them away, and finds it very amusing.







A while later, she got bored...



A while later after she got bored, she got stressed...and started squeezing her face.

So the doting Ah Yi picked the bangles up for her..



YEAH!!!
I thought her this action last week, I think. She kept laughing when she saw me do it, and picked it up in an instant! So clever.
She had been doing it since then. *Smug*













Madam Mok, somehow this picture looks like me when I was a baby..
You think?
How ah? People are saying that we look alike. Now Abbie looks like me too...

WO MEN DOU SHI DA MEI NU!!!



Guess what happened?
She threw them away again. -______-!!

I placed her on the floor, so she can go find the bangles by herself.

She found the brown one but threw it under her play pen.
I took it out for her.



THEN THE NAUGHTY BABY SLOT IT UNDER THE PLAY PEN AND STARED AT IT.
*Pukes blood*



No more.
Couldn't find it.



She came to me and tapped ('PIAK' to be exact) my leg.
I gave a loud 'AIYO!'.
And she giggled.



:
:
:

SHE PIAK AGAIN!
So I exclaimed 'AIYO!' one more time.



Even happier.

---____________________---!

Another activity that Abbie loves, is to rummage my bag.
She took out the packet of tissue, and dropped it onto the floor.

First offence, so must give chance. Somemore she so cute.
Thus I picked it up and merely said sternly, 'No,no. Cannot throw.'

She looked at me, took the tissue, and DROPPED IT AGAIN.
'NO!'
She turned to face me, clapped her hand (Yes she knows how to clap), LAUGHED.
What to do? I laughed with her lor..

I picked the tissue up one more time. No surprise, she threw it away.
Third offence. No more chances.
'Ah Yi said you cannot throw. Why you throw?'

She stared at me, closed her eyes, and leaned her head towards my chest.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?

'Sayang, sayang. Next time Ah Yi bring ten packets of tissue let you throw, ok?'

Sorry Madam Mok, as you can see, it is inevitable but to spoil your daughter.



***

Had dinner with Idris and his friend, V.

3 of us, but look at the amount of food we ordered.

We, or rather, THEY finished up EVERYTHING.

Ridiculous.

V is 55kg, while my boyfriend is 59kg.

Where did all the food go?!?!





***


In case some of you don't know, my friends and I love to whack, smack and slap people.



Weili has his red slipper to do the job.



Yanyan, the smelly cheapo, uses a brinjal from Auntie Lucy. (N-T-U-C)
(This is easily the ugliest photo of a person I have ever seen.)

For me, of course I cannot lose out.
I got myself...



A BIG-ASS BODY BRUSH!

Daiso. $2.

Who dares to bully me?!




Shuyin is a happy girl!

Random stuff

When I was in Chung Cheng and there were seperated classroom blocks, my class was on rather good terms with the class next door, 1A and 1B.
There was a period of time, when my classmates invented this really nonsensical game and dragged the 1B folks to participate in.
They played a stock exchange game.
And what's the element that determines the rise or fall of the one and only stock?
MY MOOD.

Was I that temperamental?
Huh huh huh huh huh...

I was a hot tempered person I think.

I remembered throwing my water bottle in primary school at Eugene, and caused him to trip while rushing to get a rag to clean the spilled water up. Funny that I remembered it so clearly till today when he doesn't recall a single thing.

In CCHSM (sec 1 or 2, I can't remember), I got upset by I-dunno-what-or-who, I threw my 2-layer metal piyo-piyo pencil case (Shh! Don't ask why did I use that. It was very cute and hip at that time.) straight into the dustbin from my seat. The next day, the guy who sat next to me gave me a metal pencil case, SINGLE LAYER. The cover was some Transformer looking cartoons, I think. Excuse me Mr Lewis, what exactly were you thinking when you decided to give it to me? I think I threw it away too...or did I give it back to him? Nah..I wasn't so nice.

Just trying to prove my point that I was a hot tempered person.
Still am.
But not so aggressive anymore.
'Cos now I'm indifferent.

Some said it's worse.
Yanyan said I am very horrible by being so indifferent.
There was this girl in Poly whom Yanyan dislike very much. They were always bickering and arguing about something, everything.
I often chided her about arguing with this girl, and she would say I'm even more mean because whenever the girl speaks, I'll give the 'I'm-not-interested' or 'You-are-not-worthy-enough' face and totally disregard whatever she has said.

I didn't know there were such depth in my facial expressions.




Dear reader, thank you very much to read till this point of this particular entry. But you are so going to smack me, because I have no idea why I wrote all that nonsense above. It cannot even be classified as long-winded, as they were totally IRRELEVANT to what I had wanted to say initially.

My intended main point of this post was to say that,'I had been in a rather bad mood for the past few days.'

There! I said it! Go on, go on! Gimme the DUH face.

As I am exceptionally ugly when I'm down, Idris brought me out for retail therapy.
My uncle's wedding dinner is this coming Saturday, so I need something to wear.

Bought 2 dresses and a jacket.

But guess what? My mood didn't improve.

There are like so many things that I wanna get. Ultra mini skirts, more jackets, accessories, bags, bags, and more bags. I haven't even start on the shoes.

Please let money drop down from the sky. Pretty please?
Or let me dream of 4 digits tonight that'll come tonight. Thank you ah!
I don't need too much la, around 200 will do.


200 hundred-dollar notes I mean.

Oh, and another thing. I have 2 dresses. Same design, different colours. (Yes I couldn't make up my mind of which colour to buy, so we bought both.)
Now I have to freaking decide which one to wear, what shoes to match, what accessories to go with it, and which bag to carry.
Yes I'm that anal.
Maybe I should take some pics and let you guys choose for me.

Bwah.

Next up...

Did you guys read Yanyan's latest entry?

Shocked the hell out of me.

Nah..not the Vo*y issue. It's the fact that she used so little vulgarities.

We were talking via MSN about on the very day that Peter Tan emailed the various companies.

This is the thing that made me boil.

This PT wrote:
'Toilets for disabled persons is a right, not a privilege. A barrier free environment provides people with disabilities a better quality of life by allowing them to participate and be contributing members of society. To deprive people with disabilities these basic amenities is to infringe on their rights and dignity. Whither civil society when selfishness reigns and the needs of people with disabilities are disregarded and ignored?'

Let me recall what I said.

Oh, I said that handicapped toilets or not, having public toilets is and will never ever be a right.
In countries where there's limited resources, people pee everywhere and shit in dug holes.
What public toilets?

As a normal person, lucky for me, I do not even dare to proclaim my rights. The things I can think of that rightfully belong to me is my life and the things I bought with my own money.

Let me put it in the crude way.
As a normal person, the simple thing of having means of transport that provide convenience like cars, buses, MRTs or even elevators, IS A PRIVILEGE. If nobody invented them or we cannot afford them, we can only fucking depend on our legs and walk.

And if wheelchairs weren't invented, unfortunately immobolised people can only stay at home, crawl, or depend on others to carry them. Unless they train themselves to walk with their hands or any other body parts that is.

What rights?

Yanyan's friend, Sihan, a lawyer in training, said that it is only a right if the law states so.

We all can recognise the blue sign on the toilet doors. If they put the word 'ONLY' and people use it, yeah, you'll deserve all the scoldings.

I, myself, don't use the handicapped toilets unless necessary. For me, I just feel awkward. There is no 'can or cannot' use. Just a very subjective 'should' or 'should not use'.

Yanyan is the first person that I know, who will go for the handicapped toilets. It is not something I'll do, but it is not something that is wrong.
For one, if there's a disabled person waiting to use it, I know she'll definitely let the person use first.
If she doesn't, I'll personally yank (I nearly spelled wank) her hair out of every single follicle.

Think about this:
Signs in buses and MRTs says, 'PLEASE give this seat to blah blah blah blah.'
It's not 'This seat is for the elderly, pregnant ladies, blah blah blah. If you are not anyone of them, you'll be fined $500 or jailed'

Get what I mean? It's a morals and values thingy. Nothing about rights.

Seriously, if all the less fortunates think in a way that things like handicapped toilets are their rights, I will definitely think twice about donating to the charities.
Take it that I'm petty or whatsoever. It doesn't feel good to be taken for granted.

Enough of things that pissed me off when I am already feeling pissy.

On a different note, Weili's hamster is such a poor thing.

My towel slipped off along the corridoor and I was STARK NAKED for 4 seconds. says:
I was so dulan with my hamster
Let's go sing song! says:
Why? Cos it always fall backwards?

Poor hamster with a twitching mouth.

AH.
I'm still not very cheery.
Think I need a dose of Abbie...

Ciao.

认知

一位艺人说过一句话。他说:“人,在面对现实时, 有两种应对方法:一种是逼自己长大;另一种是变得像个孩子一样。”

真是一言惊醒梦中人。 不,应该说“顿悟”,比较贴切吧。

一直以来,我认为自己有时太过于实际;什么事都必须有个解释,一切都可以按步就班的分析。

很多人说过我很成熟理智,有时甚至觉得有些过于理智而变得冷酷。我承认这一点。但是,大家疏不知的,是我觉得自己有时也很幼稚、很无理取闹。

很矛盾。成熟与幼稚,怎能并存?
百思不得其解,而且很挣扎。

讨厌自己的冷淡与淡漠,也厌恶本身的幼稚和情绪化,更加对于不能控制及解释自身的感觉感到反感。

听过了那句话,再慢慢咀嚼后,发现自己的“双性”,会因环境的驱使而交替。 在面对无助、孤立,或必须自身担当责任时,我变得很理智;为了保护自己,我会呈现淡漠。相反的,如周遭有可信赖之人能给予庇护,主导权我拱手相让,担子让你挑;自己则做个需要人照顾,只会撒娇哭闹的孩子。

不了解自尊过胜的自己,也非常看不起逃避现实的自己。
嗤之以鼻。。。

两头不着岸,让人迷失在茫茫大海中。

我想,在获得这份认知时,是在当中寻找平衡:在成长成熟的当儿,也别失去童真中的热情。

**I'm using NJStar Communicator. This one allows users to type Chinese on every platform, I think. If you are using NJStar Chinese WP, just type in the program, and then simply do a copy and paste to where you want it to be. I think this works for every other chinese processing software. If there are anymore questions about how to this, I don't know if I can answer everyone of them, 'cos I learnt all these through trial and error. Good luck and have fun.

30 over years ago, a little baby girl was born.
She was a cute baby indeed, just like the girl in picture below.



Of course this is not her. This is yours truly. So cute, so adorable. And I'm not so OLD...

This FOLLOWING one is the girl I'm talking about.



30 over years later, in 2004, this little girl, all grown up (and married), was pregnant. The little girl then, is now an 'Ah-Soh'.
The expected due date for the baby was around 25th Oct 2004.

However, little did Ah-Soh and her husband expected the baby to arrive 2 weeks earlier. They still happily went to attend a friend's wedding at Ritz Carlton. They just finished the third dish and she felt the contractions.

They had to leave. What a waste. I heard they gave a BIG hongbao. Tsk tsk tsk..

Easy birth it was.
The baby was born on 10 October 2004.
It was the Mommy's birthday.
The baby? It's a girl, whom her Ah Yi fell in love with after she saw her beautiful eyes.
Her name is Abigail Lim Shi En.
The meaning behind the name 'Abigail' is 'Daddy's delight'. She's everybody's delight.


























The little tiny baby grew day by day, into one active little darling of her parents.
Soon, one year passed, and here we are, to celebrate her VERY FIRST BIRTHDAY, or should I say, the very first birthday that Baby Abbie and Mommy is going to celebrate TOGETHER.

A party was held at Downtown East Pasir Ris Chalet on the 8th October 2005, which close friends and relatives were invited to celebrate this special day with the family.



The forever so nice Ah Yi (Yours Truly again) and her smelly friend, Cheng Yanyan painted a banner for the birthday girls, since they have alot of paint left, after painting their friend's birthday banner last month.
Of course they are not such cheapos to only paint it 'cos they didn't wanna waste the paint. They painted the banner 'cos Ah Yi loves Abbie very much, and CYY wanted to boast about her 'artistic-skills', and that she's worried that she would not be allowed into the party.



Apart from the banner, Ah Yi, her sister (who is another Ah Yi too) , and CYY decorated the venue with pink and white balloons and curly golden ribbons! NICE!



That's cheeky Abbie in Mommy's arms and their chocolate birthday cake!



That's another birthday cake. Mango flavoured. 2nd celebration. Private one with Daddy and Ah Yi..
The bad thing about having the same birthday as your mom, is that, you have to share the cake with her. And since she's holding on to the spoon, you can only STARE when Mommy eats...
Poor Abbie darling.



3rd celebration at Swensen's.
Much better. Two 'cakes' this time. 2 Firehouse Sundaes for the birthday girls...
Oh, and not to forget the special birthday song sung by the staff.

Look what Abbie got for her birthday! Lotsa clothes and toys!



Oh wait, what's that?!?!
(Zoom in, zoom in)



A t-shirt hand-made by both Ah Yi!!
H-A-N-D-M-A-D-E.

Here's the birthday girl at her post party celebration.
Let's go ask her a few questions!

Ah Yi: Abbie baby, you are enjoying yourself! Aren't you?


Abbie: HEHEHEHEHEHEH!!!

Ah Yi: How did you find your party?



Abbie: Gagaga! The cake is this big!

Ah Yi: Oh, so you love your cake?



Abbie: Yumyum! I ate 30 slices of cake. Three-Zero. Mum mum.

Ah Yi: Woah. So how did you find your birthday on the whole?
