My New Place

It's been nearly a month since I moved out to my new apartment. Small but I think it is sufficient for me. Since I'm doing my own cleaning, laundry etc.

Here are some new year apartment-related-resolutions..

1) save my dying plants...

2) fix the A/C

3) save and get the Maxis broadband thingy

4) ...clear my housing loan asap...

Another resolution: Having my own place also means I will need to make extra effort to visit my family. For occasional free dinners (then I won't have to eat my crappy cooking), and a dose of family chat (gossiping).

My Xmas Gift (to myself)

I bought myself a tv. How often do you get to say this anyways. People who know me would know that I'm a tv bug, and well, it's xmas and my new place is kinda boring and it needed some entertainment. I was with pah! and andrew the other day and bought one at RM1999 (ouch!). Tis has been a painful month. But, i was saying to pah!, if we dont reward ourselves now, when do we? So go for that mini cooper, pah!

But seriously, I'm gonna hold off spending for a bit. Tis is the last xmas gift to myself. (maybe throw in a massage or two)

Best place (for me) in London.....Harrods.

me and my dog
long story. read about it on once he's come around to blogging about it.


Strawberry fields foreverrrrrr....
All beatled up.
The demise of my faithful shoes. It finally died on me after 2 and half weeks of roaming. That's my new shoes.


Andrew trying his dramatic photography on me. nice shot of the coliseum...
The ever flamboyant tour guide......she said to me, 'awwww, look at those 'children'(pointing at 20something fellas), look at how disinterested they are, leaning against the railing, not even listening while my poor mate is explaining the Roman history. What a waste of time" hint hint.


Even better than Mona Lisa.....(i can't seem to shake away the smurfs..)

on a yoghurt break with a spoon we 'borrowed' from the hotel



Why Contiki drivers are the best...
Why we love our Contiki Tour Manager...

It was a long ride......

The prison march.
Prison Break!
The hall of our prison. One of those cells is my room for the night :). Creepy..

A peep of my cell.


nothing like cheap beer....Moretti....hehe
one of those things you'll have to do in Venice...

andrew..looking sheepish. Also one of those sights you'll hv to take a pic of yourself with.

I think i look as if i genuinely liked this ride.

watch how everyone on the same gondola ride tried to move away (but failed!) from the camera.

Mona Lisa

That was how tiny Mona Lisa was.........frankly, i thought the other paintings that the Louvre had were way better, but ohwell, who am i to judge.

Up on that Tower...

Some guy in my tour asked me if Andrew proposed while we were up on that tower....duh, i told him we even forgot to kiss!!! too absorbed with the sight from way on top!!! It didnt make me go gaga like some of the other tour mates, you could hear them sighing, oohing and aahing! hehehehe...kind of rubs on you sometimes how people can be so dramatic. I can't remember myself going oohing and aahing....except well for Angkor Wat...

In Amsterdam, obviously....

Don't mind his hand!


Nothing related to crystal here..just thought this was a nice sight...erm, although very similar to the Seaworld in Singapore...hehehe.....or Aquaria ......


Alright belle ...stole this pic from you. A post long overdue. It was a great beginning for this dear friend of mine. Years younger than me but braver than most women my age. Can't wait to see little Blythe!

This was not an intentional pose by Andrew...We were listening to our guide telling us about Roman history at the Forum....Very attentive aye.

Piazza Venezia

Probably my favourite city, Rome...this is Piazza Venezia. It was hours and hours of walking...but worthwhile....This place looks even more amazing at night...


Duncan, our tour mate actually made us laugh here, so that's why we were grinning like mad, trying to stifle our laughter. He kept saying we don't smile in any of our photos when we pose...and kept egging us to SMILE. hehehe

Notre Dame

My photography has improved...i hope, for andrew's sake. Since we had to take shots of each other :)

Dedicated to Atami/Larn. This is one of my favourites. It looked like it's a cut and paste job...thanks to Andrew. kekeke.....
