I was gonna join THIS competition. But since BBC has had some problems lately, the competition was called off.
But I'm gonna go ahead with the themes and try my hand at becoming the self-acclaimed Photographer of the Year 2007.
(well you only get to 'syiok-sendiri' on your own blog right??)

The themes are:

1) Blue
2) Hidden
3) Concentration
4) Look Down
5) Heritage
6) Time

Feel free to join in y'all!~ Its one theme a week for the next 6 weeks! Take as many pictures as your want for each theme.

"I think one of the biggest reasons I love photography is because it captures 1/250 of a second at a time. One simple moment without complication." - an article from Relevant.

This post is a lil late. There was so much i wanted to say but maybe pictures would suffice.
My 21-year old cousin recently got married. And as much as I'm overjoyed for her cause she's 'all grown up' now, a teeny tiny bit of me is sad cause we wont be having any more sleep overs and giggling sessions.

Sheena's the best est cousin ever. We grew up together and played together, fought with each other and were up to so much of mischief you wouldn't even believe it if i told you. She came over to stay practically every weekend and we'd have a ball of a time talking till late and giggling under the sheets and making life miserable for my little sister.

This girl has been through a lot and we've been through a lot together. She really is my soul sister. She knows me inside out and i can say that about very few people.

She had the most awesome wedding I've been to. I was 2nd paparazzi so i had full view of everything that was going on and i even had to tackle some Arabs out of the way of my shot! (ok that was exaggerated but seriously, the place was swarming with Arabs who whipped out their cameras and camcorders as soon as she walked down the isle) She's by far the MOST beautiful bride I've ever seen. Darling, I love you to bits!

I got the usual barrage of SPAM mail from FELICIA today.

Todays mail had to do with a girls conquest with public toilets.

Anyway, i was more fascinated with the little quote at the bottom of the page -

A Friend Is Like A Good Bra...
Hard to Find,
Always Lifts You Up,
Never Lets You Down,
And Is Always Close To Your Heart!!!


I think... I need a good bra.

The key to a better working environment is plain and simple.


A clean working space, a fast and reliable machine, coffee/milo, cookies and bedroom slippers.

yes you heard me.

I just saw a colleague with PINK bedroom slippers walking about the office. I'm gonna out-do her tomorrow with my bunny-ear bedroom slippers.

Owh and maybe Snuggles too!*tee hee hee*

are you at risk of heart disease?

Here's a study done by the National Council of Psychotherapists.

Which one are you?

— Type A

Impatient, competitive, overachieving workaholics. Can be aggressive and prone to perfectionism. They live by timetables and cannot relax and are insecure. They are at higher risk of heart disease

Example: Edmund Blackadder

— Type B

Patient, easygoing, relaxed and content with their lot. Calm and rational, Type Bs have the best long-term health outlook

Example: Homer Simpson

— Type C

Have difficulty expressing emotion. Eager to please, conforming and introverted. Self-controlled and prone to severe stress as a result. This personality type was first identified among cancer patients

Example: Charles (Hugh Grant) from Four Weddings and a Funeral

— Type D

Consciously suppress their feelings. They tend to be worried, gloomy and anxious, shy and insecure, lacking assertiveness and self-confidence. Type D people are at higher risk of recurrent heart attack

Example: Eeyore

So in conclusion, we should all be like Homer! Now get on out of here, drink and live recklessly!

Just a thought:
Is it possible to be SOOOO tired to the extent where the words that come out of your mouth do not coincide with the sentence that forms in your mind?
Is that in any way linked to Alzheimers?

Oh, say! can you see by the dawn's early light

Today, the 4th of July brings me back to previous 4th of July's. There was a reason to celebrate! Not the American Independence day, but my brother's birthday.

Born three years ahead of me, and born a guy, he's had more than his share of struggles and he's grown up to be someone i look up to and someone i trust. Of course there were those usual sibling squabbles, and fist fights and tears (mostly on my end) but we've grown up closer because of it and this dude means the world to me.

I remember years back when i was about four and we went for a 4th of July party at some hotel. And i was out walking round the hotel grounds (kids, don't follow suit) and i fell in the pool! In the deep end as well. And one of the band guys fished me out! So there i was soaking wet on the evening of the 4th of July shivering my ass off. And my brother runs to my mom and says, "Mom! Melisa went for a SWIM!!!"

Well, so you know... even 4 year olds know how to be embarrassed, and not one 4th of July passes me by without me remembering that incident. heheh.

Well anyway, I hope I've made your life thus far enjoyable as you have mine.
Happy Birthday Shannon. I Love you loads. *hugz*

On the train during rush hour, there's no such thing as personal space.

Every morning, the term "out of the can and into the pan" comes to mind.
Its like I'm a teeny tiny sardine crammed into the train (can) and as soon as i get out its like.... ughh... I've gotta work (pan).

owh and someone just called me Christine today...
that's new. I'm used to being called Michelle or even Rachel. But Christine???? Come on! I don't look like a Christine!!!!
