Flying to Taiwan

I’ll be travelling to Taiwan again in about six days’ time. I promised myself to write an entry for my Taiwan trip in October last year but obviously I didn’t manage to do it. Sometimes I’m amazed by my own procrastination skills. One year on and I still couldn’t find time to get it done. Looks like I should do one for my upcoming trip instead.

This time round I’ll be travelling with my family. I’m really looking forward to this trip because 1) this will be my first overseas trip with my parents and 2) I get the chance to eat and shop in Taiwan again. I finally managed to persuade (harass would be more apt) my mum to go on an overseas trip and I’m rather excited about the whole idea of travelling with my parents. Yes, there’s a high possibility of being driven crazy by them but I’m just happy that we’re able to travel and do something together. I hope we’ll have a great time in Taiwan and we’ll have more opportunities to travel together in future.

I’ll write about this trip after I return. Let’s just hope the procrastination bug doesn’t get me first.

My F1 Grand Prix & Linkin Park weekend

After making their fans in Singapore wait for four long years, Linkin Park is finally back on our shores! Needless to say, I’m going to watch their performance at The Padang later tonight. In fact, I’ll be there real early with my fellow LP fanatics in hopes of getting our hands on the coveted wristbands that would allow us to hustle up close to the stage. Yes, I know I’m going to hit 31 very soon but what the heck, it feels surprisingly good to behave like a 17-year-old fangirl again. It’s fun to do silly things once in a while I suppose.

In any case, I’m so psyched to see LP perform again. Can’t wait.

The 2011 F1 Singapore Grand Prix 3-day passes – My first F1 experience

Speaking of silly things, I really had fun hanging out with Ling and May over the past two evenings at the Singapore Grand Prix event. There were the Korean acts which left all three of us bewildered on the first night and the supposed-to-be-Shakira-but-turned-out-to-be-Shaggy performance last night. That was such a surreal experience. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d see Shaggy aka Mr Boombastic perform live. For starters, I didn’t know he had so many hits. Anyway, after this F1 experience, I’m so glad that I have the girls to do these “silly” things with. Even though they didn’t know who the acts were, they were still game enough to attend the events. I don’t know, it just makes me feel so lucky to have them as my childhood friends.

Here’s to an awesome Linkin Park performance – the perfect way to end my first F1 weekend.

Earrings for her

I’ve been given a pair of lovely handmade earrings from a very good friend of mine.

Lovely earrings from Earrings for Her

She has recently started her own online blogshop selling her unique handmade earrings at Earrings for Her. Please visit her shop and who knows, maybe you’ll find something special for yourself or as a gift for your girlfriend. Go on, click on the link now!

I’ve always fancied opening a blogshop too but I don’t know what I can sell or what I’m good at. I’m hopeless in handicrafts and I possess zero talent. So yeah, I think I’d better stick to my day job. Speaking of my job, I’ve decided to call it quits, again. I’m not extremely proud of it but I do have my own reasons, however warped they may be.

I’m back to being a jobseeker and seriously, I think I’m getting a little tired of it.
