tell me more

Someone shared a saying to me:

Forgiving is letting go of the hope for a better past.

I had to tell him to say it a few more times to have my overly-worked brain cells function to grasp the meaning. When it finally hit me, I must say I agree.

overflowing cheese ahead

He left Saturday and it's only Tuesday - 24 more days.

Random things:

- I will never let him pack his bags the day/night before. I stayed over at his house to help with packing his luggages but it turned out that I did all of it as he frantically tried to figure out how to fix his laptop. I folded all his clothes as he did 5 loads of laundry and did a little shopping to make sure he has everything. And there I was thinking that my sister and I are the worst travellers because we leave it at the last minute too but I was wrong. Then again, he's a first time traveller and since last year, I think I've mastered the art of packing.

- He is a webcam exhibitionist. Although he can be very silly when we're together, the webcam just magnifies it to at least 3x. Errr. While intermittently laughing, he confessed that he was looking at himself more than me. He's like a one year old amused at his reflection. Haha.

- I feel like we've only known each other for a month, but in a good way. It reminds me of the times when we actually wrote emails to each other and talk about nonsense things on MSN.

- It helps that I have a stuff toy to pinch/hug sprayed with Axe Touch. :P


Someone asked me if I was worried about him leaving for a month. I said yes and no. In all honesty, I trust him more than I trust myself. Errr. Even though I've been a witness *coughcough* to temporary-long-distance-relationship gone sour, I know and sincerely believe that he loves me and wouldn't think of anything along those lines. I still have faith you see.


The mistake someone made on my schedule last Saturday that caused me to miss a shift (errr) will most likely be settled tomorrow in front of my manager. Sigh. When I came to work on Sunday, they were laughing at me and instead of being mad, they just asked me how the airport drop-off went. I just love the people on my rotation. :D

If I could change anything this morning, I would.

Who would have known that I will do something stupid???
I could have been more patient or more persistent and this wouldn't have happened.

I feel like my head is going to explode.

leaving on a jetplane

... to make airplanes. :S

Four more days until I start counting the days of when he'll be back again. It's been a rough week or so because we've been fighting about a lot of things. Fortunately, we like to compromise. Maybe this will be the month I may actually agree to work overtime during the weekend because I have nothing else to do anyway. A couple of plans from friends but so far, no definite ones. Sigh.


And because of the hype and how good the preview is, we finally lined up to see Batman. I must say it was the best one I've seen. I have a feeling that no one else would dare play the Joker since Heath (we're close. errr) did such an amazing job with it. The disturbing images still resonate within me and I really am afraid of him. :S

But to give credit where credit is due, everyone was just great. Even the guy from Prison Break who had a brief cameo in the beginning was very convincing. :D


I wish I could just work 8 hour shifts all the time. I feel I have more energy and less anxious during the day because I know it will end in a blink of an eye. The only problem is that I'll have to work 5x a week. Eek.

the checklist

Dishes washed - check.
Laundry folded and organized - check.
Floors swept - check.
Living room back in to its acceptable state - check.

Two more days and my parents are back. I have already seen a preview of their San Francisco trip courtesy of album sharing by their tech savvy family friend tour guide. I'm sure my parents and aunt will be very happy that finally they'll be able to see their pictures right away instead of waiting for days/weeks til they are given a printed version of them.

I'm quite jealous of their trip. If only work wasn't on the way by scheduling me and also the convincing monetary constraints I have adopted to make life easier for me in the future I could have been there too. Sigh.

After a semi-excited and semi-apprehensive call, I found out (maybe two nights ago) that my boyfriend will be going to Japan for some sort of training. Once again I am jealous. My friend consoled me by saying "imagine all the Hello Kitty and cute things you can get!" Don't get me wrong, I like the kitty, but pink has never been my colour. Errr. I am more jealous of him visiting Japan (although for work purposes) before me. The scenery, the culture and sushi! And of course, the pictures!! The next best thing is for me to let him borrow my point-and-shoot (as I don't trust him with my fancy camera) and take lots of pictures for me.

The rest will have to follow for another entry.... I enlisted my brother's friend to watch my brother's car while I take a shower. Who leaves their car door open and expect me to wait for him to come back? Ack.

summer lovin

Rain, shine, breeze and summer.

Since my parents are not home, we've been forced to cook for ourselves. My sister made the effort of slaving away with the help of Hamburger Helper one day much to my delight since it meant packed lunch the next day. My brother on the other hand, out of desperation, cooked rice but fell asleep before he can even eat some. :S As for me, I've fried enough eggs, sausages and hotdogs to make breakfast junkies love me. Unfortunately, no one eats breakfast. Haha.
This situation just makes me strive to make sure that my future husband knows how to cook. :D
The end. Errr.
