You've already been missed. [Thursday, September 22nd, 2011 at 9:31pm]
Haven't been here for a bit. Feels pretty great not penning down thoughts, even the good ones. Some things will remain etched in mind. Though after a while, the images get sorta fuzzy. But the best memories, they're there forever. And if they're not, well, I don't need to see them in words to be reminded. I've got photos. (: I've been happy generally, save for a few downs, but on the whole, alive and kicking. And I'm back because this beautiful thing here deserves a tribute..


You weren't really ours but we loved you like our own. Thank you for being the closest thing I could ever have to a pet. For keeping me company when I walk home alone late at night. For running after the bike like a little Lion King without fail, every time you see us coming home. For squeezing your body as close as you can to our legs and swishing your annoying tail in our faces. For literally poking your nose into our shopping bags thinking they're food. For allowing us to hang on to your tail unlike other cats. For biting my hand when I'm bothering you while you're trying to sleep. For never allowing Fai to pour out the food properly cos you're just too hungry, or greedy, whichever. For coming to my door the day you were sick. I should've known. Thank you, Catcat, for being the world's best cat and companion.

I hope you're happy in Cat Heaven with your little furry friends. We love you.

How many of us long for real-life dreams to be like this? Effortless and untroubled, sans expectations, only ruffled by Mother Nature's unavoidable transfigurations. I'm no longer on a paper chase, yet, not entirely by choice, I'm still on a quest to hunt for dreams. And as far as dreams go, mine, as well as most, are merely worldly and mundane. Dreams turn into jobs. Jobs that cancel out dreams and become tools for the sake of material wealth. They tire me. Then again, I'm a cynic, so no one should worry what I think. I'm just a little angry at the world for roping my dreams to societies that won't let me grasp them. Even when I've gotten a little bit closer to holding onto one, it feels like I'm nowhere near. How painless it was to be 7, when the only cloud in my head puzzled over where I would find the perfect My Little Pony unicorn. Well I got Tulip Twinkle (I did not give her that gay name) eventually. Funny. I still had to work for that. Dreams start out so small. Yet, no matter how simple they begin, like a duty to a higher power, life milks you dry trying to achieve them anyway.

P.S. Completely unrelated, but my lover took these shots, as he does for most of my photos. Save for the first and last. He's incredibly talented. (: He just doesn't know it yet.

Tumblr-featured. But this, this needs to make an appearance here. SQUEEEEEEEEEEE! I've got to get me a Maru. Or a baby panda. Pleeeez??

Bop bop baby [Tuesday, May 31st, 2011 at 10:41pm]










Catching what's left of the sunset, flinging rocks too large for my hands in piteous attempts to form ripples (laughable really), getting my butt pricked by smaller, sharper stones. Cruising down foreign roads leading to dead ends where trailers were abandoned for the night. Standing on the back of the bike with no regards for life, silently screaming "Look ma, no hands!" I love nonsense dates. Which are in fact, much too often. (:

Kissing sundown. & inhaling acrid fish air. I loved it.

Like a deer in headlights; eternally caught unaware.

My outsides are cool, my insides are blue. [Thursday, May 19th, 2011 at 3:23am]








How to look dewy the easy way? Nope, no need for highlighters, shimmers or funny knick knacks. It's real simple. Get out in the sun, sweat buckets, and leave a thin film of yuck on your face. That, you guys, is real dew. ;D Alright, sorry, I'm really useless with make-up tips.

It's all about love; and I know better. [Monday, May 16th, 2011 at 3:08am]








Hushed troubled talks, midnight gallivants in an art museum and getting caught by security.

Cavalier. And perfect.

You can have your oreo and eat it too. [Sunday, May 1st, 2011 at 10:58pm]

Hi, my name is Nora, and I coat my oreos in pancake batter before deep frying those babies. I'm aware that they look really yucky but on the contrary, taste very much like heaven on a plate. Yummy yummy yummy I've got love in my tummy and I feel like loving you! Clearly, I don't think about the repercussions of having to change my name to Fat Nora when I'm done with all of these.

So what's new pussycat? Well, I've currently landed a new job in the unemployment department and I couldn't be more happy. :D Hooray to courage and sticking to my guns! What's next? Don't know yet. But for now, a whole lot of bed time and plenty of hours to catch up on The Big Bang Theory. (Y)



It's been a good run, guys, and I'll miss you. But I needed this. For my sanity. Lol.

On an unrelated note, I want to dump my Blackberry for an iPhone because I've been playing with Fai's phone and the apps have won me over. No actually, the real reason is because they have it in white now and I can't get over how gorgeous it looks. Not so much for its functionality because I have fat fingers, and can't type on touch screens witgout hacing my sebtences lopk likd this. But that's okay. Fingers can be trained to stop reaching out for more oreos. *insert toothy fat kid grin*

Panjacks! [Sunday, April 24th, 2011 at 11:32pm]




Dinner last Saturday was really REALLY good. What-a-spread, truly. *pats tummy*

'Tis the season to be fancy. [Sunday, April 17th, 2011 at 10:16pm]



Was so honoured to be part of the Dorothy Perkins brunch event last Saturday at Great World. CHACK OWT THEIR RANGE OF SHOEEEEEESSS! Their wedges and block heels are to die for. Never realised DP carried such awesome pairs. :D Spring/Summer has always been the seasonal trend most sought after especially since we live in a ball of humidity. (Thank you, Equator.) Apparels are so light and comfy, yet the colours and prints they come in scream boldness. Mad love. But don't get rid of nudes and pastels! They go so well with Spring's signature novelty prints and colour-blocking. Sugar & spice they say...

& everything nice!Collapse )


Lunch @ Nando's!




Where I entertained myself because my best friend was more interested in her food. :(


Which was actually really REALLY good that I neglected my camera and didn't bother with photos when the rest of our food arrived. Speaking of neglect, I left my camera at Nando's and didn't realise till I got home much much later. Had my heart stuck in my throat wondering if someone had already stolen it. Muchos gracias Nando's men, for keeping it safe! Thank goodness for Fai too, for not killing me and bringing me back all the way to Bugis a second time. <3 Btw, their mushroom soup was superb! It had mini chicken bits and was so thick and creamy and the bread that came along with it was soft and and and, I'm hungry. Sigh. I love you, Nando's.

On the edge of dreams [Monday, April 11th, 2011 at 5:48pm]




Exhale.Collapse )

Contrary to how sexy the place looks, 1Altitude has terrible, TERRIBLE service that's almost disgusting. Every table has a RESERVED sign despite their No Reservations policy. Their MIB staff are haughty and downright unhelpful, strutting around as though their heads are stuck in air. Oh.. Wait. That is literally, half true. They breathe down your neck every 15 minutes asking if you would be ordering more drinks or ANY food, indiscreetly proclaiming that if you're just there to enjoy the less polluted air, it's not free. Mood killers.

But, if you're willing to shoot them a glare or two for being such bothersome staff, pretend the music could drown you, and take in the lights of the concrete jungle down below, the experience is somewhat pleasing. Like the power of omniscience. Cheap thrills haha.



In other news, if you haven't already caught The Lion King musical, well.. Why haven't you?? It's (Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)(Y)(Y). 2 thumbs and many many toes up!



Also, how cute is Zazu? :D SQUAWK!
and Happy Four, babycat. <3
