Sore Throat Remedy

One sore throat remedy I find very effective is crushed pearls with chuan1 bei4. Yeah, you go to chinese medicine shops and asked for pearl powder. they will show you different grades of pearls. the smaller the more expensive. then u can ask them to grind with chuan bei into fine powder and pack into satchets which you mix with water and gulp down. take one satchet before bedtime and wake up feeling completely well in the case of mild sore throats and better in the case of severe ones. great for complexion too!

about $20 per packet (one pack is one dose). during ZTP sale, if you buy 15 packets, it's half price =) keeps very long in the fridge.

that day chris had sore throat i force-fed him one dose at night and he woke up ok =)

Langah... Again

eh, this time not me hor... it's Chris. and the damage is so bad Friedrich needs to be hospitalised for 3 weeks =(

what happened was it's the other guy's fault. chris was on the main road, the guy was coming out of small road so chris had the right of way and the guy rammed into chris so friedrich's left side (passenger side) was goner... plus got damage public property (some pole on the road divider) so had to make police report.

Chris is fine. so is his boss who was sitting in the passenger seat...

but no car for 3 weeks... insurance company offer either spare car or $50 per day... eh... 3 weeks of $50 a day... chris says can almost buy new apple phone neh...

My Colleague Says The Darnest Things

overheard in the office today...

someone*: *picks up a bottle/cup of tea* elderflower tea. lao3 ren2 jia1 he1 de cha2! (tea for old people)

-______________-|||

elderflower tea is not tea for old people. it's also not tea for church elders... -.- it's just the name of the flower...

elderflower

*this person's identity has been ConCealed LOL

Zoe... Again

wa, did Zoe offend someone in the media or what? so poor thing... kena again and again... first it's her wrinkles, now it's some comments she made about the 7 princesses... the headline read "Candid or Catty?" tsk tsk tsk... personally, i feel that what she said was fair and truthful if you read it whole. of cos if certain phrases are taken out of context, they'd sound bad. i agree with her to a certain extent.

Lianhe Wanbao reported that Zoe said:

Rui En has a chilly attitude, Felicia looks common, Jesseca is bochap (carefree in Hokkien), Dawn has a baby voice.

And then the clincher: Men love Fiona but women hate her.


this is the whole interview. judge for yourself whether what she said is Candid or Catty. I vote candid =)

ZOE was asked by Style magazine which of the Seven Princesses could be her successor if it were her call.

She replied: 'They all have different personas. But acting-wise, I like Jeanette (Aw). She shows maturity in her acting, and has also proven that she learns and adapts better. Perhaps because she majored in drama in university?'

Zoe was then asked to play word association as the reporter listed the remaining princesses.

On Felicia Chin: 'She has a pretty general look but she's also lively and a tad mischievous.'

On Rui En: 'She's quite different from the rest. She has attitude and spunk. She is like the Ice Queen and everyone may not like her. But let's face it, she has left a deep impression in people's minds.'

On Fiona Xie: 'She's plain sexy. She's the kind of girl that women hate and men love.'

On Dawn Yeoh: 'I can really see Dawn maturing both as a person and in her roles. Previously she was just a cute small girl.

'Even her pitch sounded cutesy. But good for her that she is growing up.'

On Jesseca Liu: 'I thought she was a self-centric person from her roles. But after knowing her better, I realise she is a bochap (carefree in Hokkien) girl. She isn't overly ambitious and just wants to do her job well.'

On Joanne Peh: 'She is, on the other hand, clearly more sporty and has that modern vibe in her.'

Movie Review: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (2*)



i feel it's not as intriguing as the previous instalments because it's not as action-packed and is at times a bit zzz... slow. daniel radcliffe and emma watson are hot but otherwise rupert grint and his on-screen sister (who smooched daniel) have grown taller and that's it. i don't know why hermione will like ron... she is so smart and he is so -.-??? plus he is ugly... hm... basically the characters have become teenagers therefore smooch a lot on screen -.-

chris and i feel it's getting a bit draggy... quickly kill voldemort already leh... haiz... have to wait til harry potter and the deathly hallows, last episode -.-

heng ah, we didn't buy gold class tickets.

Coco Who?

that day we were at the cinema and i saw a poster of a new movie starring audrey tautou


me: WA! i want to watch this movie! Coco before chanel. woot! it's about coco chanel!
chris: coco what?
me: coco chanel!
chris: who's that?
me: -_________-||| you. bought. the. bag. for. me.
chris: oh? orh... the orh lulu one ah?
me: -_________-|||

Paris Overrated

Hahaha... a survey done by Tripadvisor revealed that tourists found Paris to be the most overrated European city citing it's high prices and unpleasant residents as contributing factors. Apparently, tourism in the city has plunged 17% and the authorities are desperate since tourism creates jobs for people. Read the TNP article here. you got to scroll down, the front part is about japan.

Why am I not surprised at the findings and figures? *evil grin* hehehe... i totally agree that it is overrated. people always say paris how nice how nice how lomantik how lomantik and i see couples kissing near eiffel tower la, near arc of triumph la... cannot kiss elsewhere meh? i think kiss in miyajima while surrounded by crimson maple trees even more lomantik leh hahaha...

so ok, they have eiffel tower... ok, it's a tower you climb up to see the city. and then? climb down lor hahaha
ok they have arc of triumph... but... it's just an ARC. i know it has great historical significance but... then?
ok they have chateau versailles with it's sprawling gardens and fountains (which they didn't turn on when we were there -.-)

but sorry leh, european architecture just doesn't really appeal to me. ya, they are nice la. the magnificence and opulence te blah te blah... i have not seen that many european architecture but from those i have seen, i was impressed but not WAWAWAWAWAAAAAAAAA IMPRESSED you get what i mean?

cos to me, nothing comes close to the forbidden city and great wall of china. u know how big is forbidden city anot? walk one day also cannot walk finish. u know got how many rooms anot? one night stay in one room also cannot finish in one year. the great wall no need to say la ha, it can be seen from outer space. full stop. we tried climbing last time, just one tiny section and we =P peng san man... hahaha...

thing about asian architecture (in particular chinese and japanese) is that apart from the intricate details and sheer awesomeness, what i really appreciate is the brilliant engineering that went into building them. a whole place built without a single nail, now that's a feat. a creaking corridor to ward off intruders (nijo jyo in kyoto), that's hot sia. and then the Chinese can somehow build a mausoleum with natural air con one... that's cool la (pun not intended). i tell you, the last time people are super brilliant...

but that said, i like the lourve very much (minus the crowd... when we were there, we were thinking of US president Obama who was there too and he must have had the privilege to visit The Lourve without the crowd, so nice... how come chris not president? *grumble*)

i still like travelling around to different places just to experience the different cultures, sights and food... just that my favourite will still be JAPAN =) other places is go there to look see look see then ok, been there before le, what's next? japan is like a second home LOL

Botox Zoe?

Haiz... recently there has been talk about Zoe's visible wrinkles on TV in TNP and people suggesting that she should go for botox

-.-

i won't call myself a zoe fan but hello people, she is a 41-year old mother of two. she is a celebrity, not an immortal. celebrities also age, celebrities also lose collagen, celebrities also have cellulite, celebrities also cannot defy the force of gravity. so what if she has a few wrinkles? how many singaporean 41 year old mother of two look half as good as her?

i bet if she had gone for botox, people will talk behind her back, like they talk behind those actresses whose bosoms suddenly heave heavier or facial features become more refined. people will definitely say, "aiyoh! she botox one la!" and some will say, "very bad role model for the youngsters... promote vanity... inner beauty more important!"

you can't please everyone la. botox, people not happy. don't botox, people also not happy -.- singaporeans are weird i tell you. they always criticise this criticise that. i say just let her age gracefully and watch her ACTING, not her wrinkles.

and when YOU age, you'd be glad if you can age like her.

Solitaire??!!!

yesterday during lunch, one of my new colleagues said he Q-ed for 6 hours to get the new i-phone...

him: oh... but i do gaming leh... macbook cannot
ann: -.- can la, my husband games with his macbook pro
him: can meh? what games your husband play? solitaire ah? *giggles*
ann: -.-|||

i told chris about it and he was so offended... LOL

i totally understand how he feels... it's like someone asking me whether i bought my LV bag from the downstairs pasar malam ROFLMAO haiz, young peoples nowsaday... don't know sky high ground thick... *shake head* tsk tsk tsk

Good Mood ^^

weeeeeeeeee! =DDD I'm in a good mood now ^^

i got off early, went for facial, shampoo, massage by ah kim (at kenko) then met chris for dinner at Ma Maison Central. i had beef straganov omu rice ^^ yum yum! i love omu rice! =DDD we shared a warm soft brownie with ice cold vanilla ice cream and i finished it off with chamomile tea... in a pretty tea cup ^^

=DDDDD

oh, make a reservation before you go. we find the price ok (JCB card got 10% off) but some people (on the internet) find it expensive. chris had the sirloin which he liked. two main dishes and one dessert cost $50+ ok la. go crystal jade all that also around the same what.

40 Going on 50

sometimes i get the feeling that chris underdeclared his age when i married him... although his cleaning aunty calls him little brother (xiao di), he is quite an ah peh LOL

for example, he loves old old cheena pok movies...



his i-pod is filled with such songs... check out maggie chung's hair style... so 70s LOL



chris has the canto version... he likes canto oldies...







can't help but feel generation gap hahaha...

Movie Review: Taken (4*)

This is an action movie that chris suggested watching on Sat night on AppleTV.

me: what's it about?
chris: about an ex-spy whose daughter was kidnapped then he tried to save her
me: OK sounds good...

but chris left out an important detail. well, it's not important to him but it's important to me. the girl was kidnapped not for ransom but for flesh trade =( so he was dealing w a syndicate that kidnaps female tourists to Europe and transports them around Europe as prostitutes.

The guy acted by Liam Neeson is a divorced retired spy. His ex-wife remarried a very rich man who provides everything for her and the daughter she had with Liam Neeson who he loves a lot but hardly gets to see.

His daughter Kim (17) and her friend Amanda (19) went in Paris (Paris!!!!) for holiday and stayed at an apartment. At the airport, they met a handsome French guy who chatted them up and suggested sharing a cab because "Paris taxis are so damned expensive. Want to share?". That, was the biggest mistake. Because the guy was a "spotter" for the syndicate and now he knew where they were staying."Paris taxis are so damned expensive. Want to share?" is the line he always used. Within mins of arrival, they were forcefully dragged from their rooms in broad daylight. Kim happened to be on the phone with her dad so he heard everything (and quickly recorded it), the men talking in Albanian and her being dragged away, ending when the phone was thrown on the floor.

With only this lead, he hunted them down. Through his search, the movie showed how the girls were forced into the flesh trade. They were made to be addicted to drugs then forced into prostitution. So they showed a house with rooms and inside each room was a girl with a needle into her arm... she looked zombified... those that have been addicted were thrown into a container with many beds partitioned by curtains. On the front of each curtain was a number and men weaved in and out of the joint. But there were different "grades"... Amanda was put on drugs and she died of an overdose. Kim, on the other hand, because she was a virgin, was treated as priced "merchandise" and was auctioned off at a high brow underground black tie event to a different type of clientele. She was bought for some rich fat oily fart who bought THREE virgins and was almost going to get "eaten" when her father appeared to rescue her.

Very thrilling, i was on the edge of my couch but i also felt very disturbed after the movie because of the whole theme. If she was kidnapped for ransom, I wouldn't have been so affected. But it all looked so real (I'm sure it is real. Roger has told Grace about such things before because he used to travel to Europe a lot for work). I felt v sad for the girls who were kidnapped and i kept thinking about them when i went to bed so i cried and cried... then i thought about Yuzhu in TLN and the Robert Zhang and i cried and cried too... i felt very depressed after watching the show... If Chris had told me about the flesh trade part, I wouldn't have watched it... =(

So if you don't get affected by such themes, go ahead and watch it, it's a good show.

NDP Song 2009: What Do You See

I see orh lulu only -.-

Have u guys watched the NDP song MTV for 2009? i think it appeals to teenagers la... those Coldplay kinda fans... the song is not bad but i don't quite like the emo MTV. it's dim dim one. what's with young people nowadays ha? they like dim dim everything one. that day in church we had service and the Youth Ministry led worship the whole hall also dim dim one... funny...

i was waiting for the part when the singapore night scene will light up and then got fireworks pom pom pom but boh leh -.- it's just this guy walking around singing... (i don't even know who he is la until i went to read the comments then realised he is part of some local band and the band wrote the song. k lor, sorry lor. i thought ha? who is this unknown? how come never use some famous local singer like JJ, stephanie, adu, huang yida etc.) ok towards the last part finally it's bright daylight. that's better.

don't know about you but i prefer the older songs, HOME being my favourite. the older songs are better for group singing. this song, like the previous kit chan one This Is Where I'd Rather Be, is more a solo song. and the older songs appeal to people of all ages. even my mum knows "Count On Me Singapore" (which is written by my church friend actually hahaha) except that sometimes she says "Count Money Singapore" LOL

Heaty >.<

wa, i feel so heaty >.< yes! you can FEEL heaty one...

some manifestations of "heatiness" are:
- sore throat
- mouth ulcers
- pimples
- urine not clear clear

i have THREE mouth ulcers... so pain >.< for ulcers, i think bonjela is totally useless. i prefer the chinese water melon powder or Oracort E which my doc prescribes. thing about ulcer medication is once you've applied it onto your ulcer, u don't really want to talk or move your mouth too much otherwise the medication will not stay in place... especially if you have one at each place where you need for your labial and alveolar sounds... you can't talk properly... if you have one on your lip, you can't do your b, p, f, v, m sounds well. if one on your tongue, you don't want to move tongue too much so your n, d, t, l, r, th sounds sound funny too... hahaha... after a while, you talk with purely h, k and g consonants LOL

chris: hi dear...
me: ah... i heew ho heaky... gok kwee aw-her... (ah... i feel so heaty... got three ulcers)
chris: er dear, i don't understand what you are saying... -.-|||
me: i haig, i hair kwee aw-her!!! (i said, i have three aw-her!!!)
chris: er... -.-???
me: ho hainhul!!! (so painful!!!) =(

k, but i rather have ulcers then pimples, ulcers pain only ma... at least won't ugly LOL

5 Star Snack

how fresh can fruit get?
when you pluck it from the tree of cos!

chris' aunt has a starfruit tree so we get supplies of starfruit when it's in harvest =) she will wrap them in plastic bags then my mum-in-law will go there and pluck pluck pluck and bring home bags of starfruit and they're so fresh, crunchy and juicy =) some of them are tiny which is great for us cos chris doesn't really like starfruit so i can eat one all by myself =) ah, starfruit combats heatiness so it's good =)

i cut them up (i like to cut into stars instead of strips cos it's prettier ^^) and put them in a tupperware so when i feel like having a snack, instead of reaching for that bag of chips, bar of choc or piece of cookie, can just eat a few slices of chilled juicy starfruit ^^

yum yum =D

i think she has jackfruit and guava trees too... i am waiting for the day she grows mango tree =)

last time my church friend had a mango tree which never beared fruit so he got so pek cek he went to scold the tree

friend: oei! if you still don't bear fruit ha! i chop you down ah!

then hor, the next year, really got mangoes neh! LOL

Aaawwww.... So Cute!!!

some nice studio shots i found on the internet ^^ so cute so cute!!! shooting animals is really difficult (i know because i try to paparazzi my pets all the time -.-)

the challenge is always: how do you get them to stay still?






cos sometimes they'd move and it becomes like this, the kitteh is a bit not sharp...


this one is quite ultimate... how do you ask the kitteh to "er, excuse me, can put your paw on the bunneh? give him a pat on the back... ah ah like that... ya ya correct... stay there ha... ah both look here, ya!" i guess it's just a lot of waiting then they suddenly do something cute =)


how do you tell the bunny on the left to raise left ear, bunny on the right to raise right ear ha? teach me leh...


props helps sometimes i guess


bunneh: er oei, gib me the cawwot.
puppeh: my mummy says cannot talk to strangers neh...

awww... you'd know when you click at the right moment =)


kitteh: eh... you trying to impersonate me isit?
bunneh: *act blur live longer*

outdoor shoot


kitty: eh... lie low, blend in then no one will find us
bunny: kk, i try hide behind this blade of grass... i love playing hide n seek ^^

chris will love this one at the bottom cos west n claire looked exactly like this when we first had them except they were black... aaawwwwww..... so cute so cute!!!

Slingbox

ok, a couple of people made enquiries about this so i have invited guest blogger chris aka my husband to explain explain...

me: hi dear, so is sling player FREE?
chris: the slingplayer for pc and laptops is free. the slingbox is not. slingplayer for mobile phones is not
me: oh... what is slingbox???
chris: the slingbox is a device that can stream any video input to the internet. it allows you to watch your home tv, dvd, hdmi, appletv inputs from anywhere on the internet
me: ooo... so whatever channels on your TV, you can watch la. like channel 55 all that...?
chris: yes, provided your cable reciever is connected directly to the slingbox
me: so works by internet la? or wifi? eh... what's the diff?
chris: internet is the global network. wifi is your home network...
me: so when i watch on i-phone is it pay per min kind... like they charge for internet usage?
chris: that depends on what agreement you have with your telco. starhub is flat rate. singtel sucks.
me: er dear, no slamming pls... -.- so, how much is slingbox and go where to buy?
chris: about 170 usd. go to slingmedia.com to order online.
me: oh... from america one ah? 170 USD is incl delivery?
chris: dont think so but the delivery charge is not so expensive

Speechless 3: Yi2 Pi3 Zhi1 Dao4 Huan2 Shi1 Pi3 Shen1

if u r wondering, this has got nothing to do with fart k... -.-

in Jing1 Yong1's Tian1 Long2 Ba1 Bu4 (Heavenly Dragon 8 Steps LOL), the Murong family's special power is called "Yi2 Pi3 Zhi1 Dao4 Huan2 Shi1 Pi3 Shen1" which roughly means they attack their opponents using the exact stroke they were attacked with.

on another day,

chris: hi dear, i am meeting W for dinner. you must eat proper meal ha!

chris: -.-
me: you love him more than you love me right?
chris: -.-

kekeke, now he knows what it feels like (^^)V

Sizzling Hot! pppsssss....!

Talking about hot, the following contestant in Ninja Warrior then deserve to be called HOT HOT HOT SIZZLING HOT!!! PPPSSSSS!!!!!! shunsuke nagasaki, a trampolinist, the hottest and coolest ninja warrior contestant. you have to watch this. i personally don't know ANY man who (i think) can do what he did. especially in stage 3 which is a great test of arm strength. wa, just now i was squirming, screaming, shouting in the living room chris was like O.O???!!! DEAR! so agitated!!! LOL he cleared stage 3 but next week they will show him short of a few seconds for the final stage =( sadz

oh, and he is SUPER cute de lor *slurp*

Japanese Curry

Yesterday I cooked Japanese curry and brought it to work for lunch (yes, i wake up in the morning to cook curry LOL) and my colleagues were wondering what curry paste i use. i usually use the ones from normal supermarkets (i like the vermont ones with apple) if i'm cooking for two because it comes in a box of 2 portions. then i keep the remaining portion for another time.



[i-phone]

but i found this in meidiya (liang court) which comes in a box of 10 servings =) it's so fang bian, if you want to cook for one, you just break off one piece to cook. they even have a table to tell you how much water to add. if u can read chinese, u can understand la (can ignore the japanese words, they just mean carrot, potato and onion haha... so add as much as u like lor. what's more important is the water) i like to eat japanese curry so yesterday i added 2 pieces n i usually add a bit less water than suggested and top up if necessary cos your ingredients will produce liquid too so if you follow the measurement, you may end up with curry that's too runny.
