This is it!

Hardly slept a wink last night. KM thinks it's cos I've slept too much all weekend. I reckon it's got more to do with the body clock having gone absolutely haywire thanks to 7am nights in the past week. I sure know how to prepare for the start of the school term.

Taking the bus to work feels weird. Since I started working, I've never taken the bus. MRT, maybe. Never the bus. What's even weirder is going to work in town. Never before. I figure I'd quite enjoy it.

Well. This is it.

Lunch Time Conversation with Jasmine

Me: Let's have lunch
Jas: Subway
Me: No. MOS Burger
Jas: NooOOOoooOOooooo!!! You always want to have MOS Burger!
Me: You always want to have Subway! Why don't I go get MOS and you go get your Subway?
Jas: That's not eating together!

We always have the same conversation. Why we even bother each time, I dunno, cos it never changes...

Ha ha ha...
Nervous, nervous

I start at my new work place tomorrow and I feel like I'm not ready to step into something new yet. 2 weeks of leave haven't been enough! I don't feel rested, I don't feel rejuvenated, I don't feel charged up and ready to go yet! I just wanna stay at home and scrap more, space out more, scrap some more...


I feel energy-less and nuah...

I'm free! I'm free!

Whee!!! Today was my last working day in MOEHQ. I still have 2 days of course to attend, but other than that, free! FREE!

Just before I left today, Benny asked me, "Are you sure you won't miss this place?" I told him, "Nah. I have enough photos of this place to remember it with." *broad grin* Strange though. I truly walked out of the building without even so much as a twinge of nostalgic loss (whatever that means). Guess it was really just time to move on and move out. I'll miss the people though. I had good colleagues. Fellow SHeeP who, for some reason or other, always indulged my nonsensical outbursts and need for madness - hopping around (literally), coming in coordinated attire (red day, pink day, stripes day, mandarin collar day, red & green christmas day), singing Christmas songs 6 months too early. They were more than colleagues. They were friends who were there when I needed to vent, when I needed to cry. Not just when I needed to laugh.

"Are you sure you won't miss this place?"

If the place is made up of the people, then yes, I will.

Next stop, Singapore Arts School. I pray I will be equally blessed with friends there.

Bongo Bongo!

On a whim, we went to the Night Safari for dinner tonight - BONGO BURGERS! My Lamb Burger was puuuuuurrrrfect! And what's more, there was a performance by a group from the "deepest, darkest depths of Borneo" (yeah... rite...), flame throwers, fire eaters and what not. Quite so entertaining, really. :D

Bongo bongo bongo bong... Hehehehe...

7 Gypsies Preview Class - Oh so disappointed!

After all that hype about 7 Gypsies coming to town in their caravans loaded with things to sell at the flea market, all I can say is that I felt so let down that their wares were simple and few.


A group of us Lofters were given the opportunity to attend a 7 Gypsies preview class at Laine's Paperterie @ Wheelock Place, an opportunity we jumped at so quickly, it barely took us 18 hours to get all the places filled up, discount or no! For weeks, the ladies on the Loft spoke of nothing but the preview class - what exciting things we could get to see in the class, what new ideas the 7 Gypsies latest line of scrapbooking products would bring, and what cute new embellishments we could pick up at the flea market - gypsy style as we were promised - to add to our pages.

Sadly, much of the 7 Gypsies items were sold out before the preview class even took place, and the album kit we were greeted with this evening felt like a sad show of leftovers. The sample we were provided as a guide for our project was little less than inspiring, especially for the experienced scrappers among us, and flea market items seemed to be made reluctantly available to us.

For $68, the class felt overpriced. And though Sharon was a sweet and most accomodating instructor, I left feeling thoroughly let down by the class content and material shared. There's really no need to attend a class to complete the album which we did, and my pocket certainly feels the pinch of a class wasted.
