TGIF. All the readings on equity, payout ratio, dividend who so ever is driving me nuts.
Me showing off my latest acquisition from PRADA! I wish... Manda's bf bought that for her along with MANY other goodies (did I hear a FENDI?)

nothing matters anymore

Looking at my B.Eng transcript, it comprises mostly of Bs and Cs. Totally ashamed of it in actual fact. Little would I expect an A to appear for FYP!!!! Come to think of it, the days where I hung out at lab were mainly staring at my mentor's programming screen as he writes the algorithm, dozing off occasionally or preparing blood/glucose samples which can be done by any secondary school science student. For the effort (lack of) I've put in as compared to my friends, who hid themselves in their lab till wee hours, I should be expecting nothing more than a B.

My conclusion: Dr. CNG is indeed a nice prof.......

Club21 high

I juz returned from Club21 Bazaar and I'm so happy. Didn't get much but totally love the items I bought =) At least I'm 100% sure I'll wear them more than once and that I didn't buy them juz because it's cheap unlike previous years. I have items in my wardrobe from last year which haven't been worn. As usual, there's too much to choose from and too many people, which makes shopping really confusing and lost at times. As this is still pre-GSS, I really need to watch my pocket.....

And I have a confession to make. I was looking at Armani Exchange tops and this woman beside me was too, digging up stuffs and dumping into her shopping bag. She then dug out this really chic chain leather belt. My eyes were glued to it and she put it into her bag of items. No way!! I did something real unscrupulous... Long story short, I bought the belt and I'm loving it to bits =)

loving it?

Internet window shopping instead of studying for my CFA isn't helping at all. My list of 'wants' is growing by the day and being unemployed doesn't help. I think I need to go for therapy.....

gladiator flats

I am in need of a pair of strappy flats to replace my havaianas. These days, wearing flip flops to town juz feels overly casual. Preferably something that can go with my summer dresses and playsuits

linen is officially my favorite material

As much as I love the loose and slouchy look of the bf blazer, it actually reminds me of an oversized lab coat. I guess I've to opt for something more feminine or structured. Love love love =)

i hope it's not too late for a bribe

Tryph and I decided to give our FYP mentors a treat at Goodwood Park Hotel for them tolerating and bearing with our non-contributions of the past year. I thought it would be kinda weird initially coz it feels a little like a double date but it turned out nice =) Tryph was trying to teach them some of our local dialects and colloquial. We opted for ala-carte buffet and this is juz the first round of our orders. Yummy! It's juz a pity that the dessert buffet didn't include their famous durian pastries.
One thing I like about Goodwood Park Hotel is the colonial English feel of the place

rider's cafe

Tucked away in some corner of SG lies this horse paradise. It's totally a world of its own. Horses trotting around as though they own the roads, kids don in riding gears taking a break from the crazy sun, friends hanging around enjoying their quiet and relaxing brunch =)
I was so afraid that the horse will bite me or knock me over. They are huge!!! But really nice to touch and surprisingly, they do not stink as much as I imagined.

i grew a garden in my backyard

When there's nothing to wear, fret not as there's always a sewing machine. 3 hrs later... Is this anywhere close to S$6?

This little flora dress is all I need this summer.
Dress: DIY
Bag: vintage Burberry

I'm off to brunch with my girls =)

playsuits are my new summer dresses

I <3 playsuit/jumper/romper what ever you call it. It's totally functional for all occasions. The only down side is that visiting the toilet is kinda troublesome. I've been searching high and low for the perfect playsuit to shout my name and finally =)
Playsuit: DIY
Shades: Rayban Wayfarer
Studded belt: Topshop
Bag: Balenciaga
Heels: Pedder Red

Indescribable freedom
Oh did I mention that I made this playsuit from scratch!!! Inspired by this. It took me XXX hrs but it's totally worth the effort. Can't wait for my sewing machine to 'give birth' to more babies.. Shall aim for 1 new item per week =)

Au Petit Salut aka A Little Salad

Looking for yummy and rather affordable set lunches, Au Petit Salut is the place to go. I've been there so many times and I'm still loving it =) Unlike some places where the portions for set menus are reduced, the servings here are really filling, at least for me.
30 years down the road, will we be like them?

1 last shot of us before Jess leaves for States and Chiew for KL and down under. Babes, pls remember that I'm stuck in humid SG while you all are travelling. I want my presents!!!!wearing a mesh bandage dress from Miss Selfridge,
heels from PedderRed, bag from Balenciaga

Now off to my next dinner appointment =)

this is really the end

It all ended with 1 final presentation to wrap up 1 year's worth of work at our labs.

My prof and the father of BIE

BIE Optical Imaging Lab was our home for the last 2 months
The 4 fools who went into Bioengineering with no prior chemistry and biology background. We survived =) Okay rephrase, they did well and I survived..

Thank God it's all over

summer pop

I'm dying for this color. Anyone?


I have been crazily busy with post exams activities so much so that the fact that I'm still jobless hasn't hit me. Now that yoga is over and I'm up-to-date with 24, it's time for me to pick up my books again and endure for the remaining 4 weeks....

good morning

I volunteered to send Nithe to work at some ungodly hour (in my definition, anytime before 11am is early especially when 24 keeps you awake till the sun rises). Amidst the grogginess, I realized I forgot my glasses only when I was about to take over the wheel to head home. Holy crap...

when you wished you had the exam questions beforehand

Would you ever expect to see the exact same questions appear in an exams when it was tested in a quiz on the last week of school? Was he being nice or juz a bitch?

it's ending

This time tmr, it'll all be over. I would have completed my final paper of my tertiary education. Let's hope it ends on a good note. My current progress doesn't seem too promising though..

this is a MUST watch

Freaking awesome show. Totally worth rewarding myself from the torture of BN3401.
