I survived a car crash. (A major head-on collision with a taxi, with me as the driver.) - 30 Jul 2012, 2210hrs
I am sorry if this post directly concerns you - it isn’t personal - but I am MOST ANNOYED by text messages using “den” in place of the adverb “then”. It is even more annoying when I know the sender of the message is fairly proficient in English. A “den” is where foxes (and other assorted wildlife) live, and should not be used as an alternative spelling...
1. Today was full of most harrowing experiences, that involved much shuttling to-and-fro and getting locked in at home. Elaboration for another day. 2. But I met my JC classmates for lunch today and had an amazing time of catch up with a few I haven’t talked to properly since… RJ. And the last time I saw most of them was at the funeral, which wasn’t exactly the best socialising...
Million Dollar Questions
(that Abigail encounters more often than not) Where did I put my handphone? Where are my glasses? What colour shall I paint my nails? I am sorry that the key questions of my life are neither existentialist nor some other kind of profound. But these are three essential questions I have to ask myself frequently to make my world go on.
As logic stands you couldn’t meet a man...
is the extra dollop of condensed milk in your teh bing, after you’ve asked the da ge at the stall to “jia1 tang2” (add sugar). In fact he gave me an additional 3 scoops today, which makes me very happy (“DIABETES!” roared my colleague in disgust). is realising that you have one to two free week nights this week as compared to none the previous week. This means I can...
hoping, waiting, being in limbo. Clear-cut paths to the clear-cut future would be very nice.
Brave New World
Today was the very first time that she did it; the first time since she was thirteen. That was back in 2004, a good 8 years ago. Or, to more to put it more accurately, today was the first time she made a concious decision to do it. And she did. Despite it being That Time Of The Month, she intentionally and purposefully put on a cream-coloured work skirt. Never before had she risked her public...
It takes an ocean not to break
Story of my life
It’s always down to CHOICES, PRIORITIES, and HOW FAR CAN I STRETCH MYSELF BEFORE I TEAR?
Reason #1 Why God Didn't Make Abi A Brit
I can’t for the life of me sit down and SIP tea; I have to slurp it, gulp it, gargle it (ok, I’m exaggerating here) and anything but sip it. That said, I can’t nibble on the biscuits either - chomp on, more like. You do have to admit that tea & biscuits do go down better the latter way.
A Dose of Daily Good News
Background Info: To unlock my BB, I have to press the “mute button” located at the top of my phone. So last Saturday, after using my BB in the rain (I think the water did it), my BB’s mute button refused to react to any degree / angle / form of pressure that I desperately applied to it. Basically this meant that once my BB autolocked itself, I couldn’t unlock it again....
"Heaven is For Real"
I still catch myself being wistful: “I wish that I could tell him about my job”, “If only he were around to see this”, “I need to ask him about that”. As much as time heals and God does take care of your needs, some gaps will simply never be filled - or at least, not in the way that you were used to. But perhaps I walked out of the final stage of grief after...
+Updates aka An Explanation Why I Have Not Been...
Basically I’ve been so PACKED it’s not even funny, and it’s the most packed I’ve been in my entire life I think. I’ve just spent the whole week running from appointment to appointment, waking up at 645AM and sleeping past 12MN. This entire week, I’ve reached home past 9pm everyday - except for today (Friday). But then I had one hour to eat + cleanup, and then...
I must become a lion hearted girl.
