OMG. I almost forgot my account username and password. Blame it on my negligence. Haven't really had the time to sit down and start typing my daily happenings. There aren't much to update either. You may wonder for the past months I had many happenings. Well, not actually. Every single day, and I mean EVERY single day, I'm facing boatloads of tasks and information for projects and assignments that make me wanna extinct my books. I actually have a lot more to whine about but forget it because of my 0 energy, 0 inertia 0 enthusiasm please.
On a more relaxed note, I attended Alumni in the City event this evening. And I guess this was the BEST THING I'VE EVER DONE IN MY PAST 7 WEEKS (ugh such a schoolworm). It was the launch of the University Lounge and the moment I stepped out of the lift my mind went blank. Fine dining, elegance and most importantly, networking, were all the things in my mind. But I was honoured to be there as students are not allowed. WEEE! It was such a gorgeous but a pity that I couldn't recommend to others to hold events here. The first thing I did, to stole a glance at the bar table and there I found red wine/white wine/mocktails/beer and drinks like coke and fruit punch of course. Next there was a row of desserts, with fruit tarts coated with chocolate, spongy chocolate cakes, mini crumbles of peach/banana and cheesecakes gleaming under bright white light. I lost concentration and it seemed as if they were beckoning me over to stuff my face with it. What a seductive temptation!
The next thing you should know is what people talk about in such a high-class event. All I heard was market shares market shares and MARKET SHARES. Like WHAT?! But what I have practiced, probably would be networking. Firm handshake is like OOHLALA. But whateverrrr, red wine is still the best; emotionally gratifying! :p
I miss my boy.
starringSMU 2008 (JUNE-AUGUST):
Roy's BBQ (AUGUST):
I love pictures! They create wonders. :)
Worked ad hoc events during June! I had a good time with my family over the summer holidays too. :) And my dearest baby boy, I love my summer with you. Even though we were bombarded with workload, we're happy together, aren't we? I love you boy! You're the sweetest I can ever get! :)
Today, I bid goodbye to him.
Today, I sent him in the arms of God.
Today, I hope he'll be happier with a next chapter of life, prepared with his favourite Armani and Mac.
Today, I thanked him for bringing me joy, showing support and concern and love. He would drop me a message, asking if I'm alright when he sensed that I aint feeling good. I remember the usual chats and voices we shared.
But, from now on, I won't be getting any of those anymore.
And today, I did not expect that the very next time I met her would be at such a heartbreaking scene.
Hannah, I know no words can heal your wounds.
We'll be here for you.
My research of the day! I'm afraid this is the longest post I've ever had so far:
As a friend or a mate, the Taurus individual will always be there when needed
. Being a stable and earthly sign, Taurus requires that his or her partnerships be equally as strong with a centered base. Possessed, to one degree or another, with a definite serious approach to life, a partner who can at least understand this character trait of those governed by Taurus is important. The major attribute of Taurus is constancy. Like a great mountain, Taurus is able to weather even the toughest of times and come away just as before, only stronger. The personality of those born under the sign of Taurus is that of a strong, silent type who is blessed with a calm exterior which reflects the strength of inner convictions. These individuals have an uncanny ability to display immense fortitude without moving a muscle. Any person who is befriended by a Taurus native will have a most trustworthy ally,
one whose strength of character stands like a mighty oak and whose affections can be as permanent and as enduring as the earth itself. Individuals who truly know these Taurus subjects can find much comfort in such a personal relationship.
Those born within the jurisdiction of this Sign are nothing if not committed. They make wonderful partners for the right person. A slow and steady courtship is the most pleasing for Taurus natives and they will stay in the game until they get what they want
. Such perseverance can be endearing and many are won over by this quality. Taurus enjoys the one-on-one of a close relationship
, coupled with the affection and intimacy this provides. These individuals are also strong enough to be the power in a relationship, so any partner would be well-advised to practice the art of conciliation whenever necessary. If words fail to work, then a gift might do the trick for persons ruled by Taurus adore finery and love those who can provide them with the baubles they covet.
Taurus subjects make for generous, loyal and extremely supportive partners when they feel the relationship is true and secure. However, getting a Taurus native to that point generally takes a great deal of time and effort, since such an individual cherishes the waiting, watching and being assured of the value of something before they invest heart and emotions
. Any sign of instability will send those who are governed by Taurus into retreat and it may well be very difficult (if not impossible) to persuade a Taurus native to begin anew. Although these individuals are slow to trust, once that trust is given, it is almost a magical thing and very little is able to shake it. Sweetness and light may be the favored recipe for romance with a Taurus subject. This Sign is very responsive to a wink, a smile and a tender touch.
If such displays of affection are accompanied by gifts or fine food and drink, then so much the better. Taurus individuals find material pleasures important. Security and possessions are paramount and someone who is willing to provide these things will be rewarded with undying loyalty and a kinship, which is sure to please.
Any long-term relationship with a Taurus native requires a thorough understanding of Taurus ways. Any desired changes must be made slowly and those governed by this Sign must never get the feeling that he or she is being forced into doing something.
It takes a great deal to truly anger a Taurus subject who is in love, but disloyalty is sure to be an ultimate factor. Yet, as slow as Taurus is to attach, he or she is equally as slow to detach and break-ups do tend to "hang on" for rather long periods of time. However, once a Taurus subject truly closes his or her heart to the one in question, there is very little chance that it will ever open back up again.
Those ruled by this Sign make for constant, faithful and home-loving spouses. As parents, they are usually thoughtful and kind, rarely demanding too much
of either their children or their partners. Basically, Taurus natives are homebodies who relish their surroundings and all things they can possess and embrace. They intuitively collect and protect. Thus, their "people" often fall into this category and become viewed as "personal" objects, albeit objects which are dearly cherished.
In short, the Taurus nature can be overly possessive, jealous and prone to engage in the engineering of family arguments simply for the pleasure of making up the quarrel.
Not open to any change in circumstances, these subjects may well prove to be immovable forces if they decide they are perfectly happy with something exactly as it is. Although magnanimous in forgiveness
, those born within the jurisdiction of this Sign usually find themselves unable to live with disloyalty. Thus, if a partner is discovered to have been unfaithful, any relationship is likely to come to an eventual end.
The Taurus person has a good chance to make a success of their life because of his so many positive qualities. You never leave any thing unfinished.
Your aims are very high. You do not like to be told that you are wrong, even when you are
. You dislike being contradicted.
In short, when it comes to matters of the heart, Taurus is very discriminating but, once committed, will be completely giving. Romantic and passionate when young, Taurus tends to overlook the fact that mental companionship will be an important requirement in later years. Learning to give is difficult
for Taurus, but it is the most worthwhile lesson that can be learned during the development of emotional life. It is also important for Taurus to curb the inherent jealous streak, temper and constant tendency to contradict.
Taurus natives are deeply romantic and very loyal souls who value the harmony that a happy home life creates. They will go to any extremes to keep a loved one happy and no sacrifice will be too great in accomplishment of that goal
. It is the nature of a Taurus individual to need the good life and that need is reflected in the desire to share such a life with someone special. In a sexual sense, Taurus is straightforward and down-to-earth
. Taurus native prefers long-lasting relationships and will seek to build strong alliances. It takes a great deal to truly anger the Taurus subject who is in love, but disloyalty will usually prove to be the ultimate factor.
Any potential partner must be honest and upright at all times. The Taurus woman can see through a phony with her eyes closed. She must be told exactly what a partner is feeling about her and exactly what that partner wants or does not want in a relationship
Once committed, however, she will be faithful and true since, from an early age, she is a firm believer in the "one and only" type of love. Even if this female becomes disillusioned later in life and her ideal appears to have been crushed, she will hold fast to her vision of a one-mate commitment. In turn, she will demand absolute fidelity. Despite her repeated attempts to dominate, this is a woman who truly wants her partner to be her boss
. However much this female likes to grumble, she secretly adores to be ruled
since it makes her feel protected.
For a relationship to last, it will be necessary for any mate to flatter this woman in order to keep her
. She also needs to be cajoled, playfully teased and constantly told that she is loved
. She may not always take these things seriously, but she will relish them all the same. This is a female who abhors being taken for granted and thus, will want to hear expressions of gratitude but above all else, this woman craves affection.
Taurus natives value peace, harmony and stability. They look toward the long-term rather than short-lived excitement, preferring a mate who makes them feel emotionally secure.
In return, they provide plenty of affection and generosity, but are prone to be jealous and possessive of any partner. These are souls who require creature comforts in order to operate at their maximum, romantically and otherwise. Subjects of Taurus are not particularly interested in dazzling ideas. They believe in playing it steady and safe.
The Taurus woman will always be attractive since she retains her bloom for many years and never fails to take care with her appearance. An excellent homemaker and hostess, this female know exactly what she wants in a material sense. However, she is not always very wise in the philosophic area. Still, this woman learns quickly and with experience, becomes a valuable asset to any partner who places a successful relationship high on the list for happiness
. There are certain to be ups and downs with a female governed by this Sign. Although she is capable of loving in a whole-hearted fashion, she can, if provoked, be very contrary and resentful.
However, as a life partner, she will be faithful and true since, from an early age, she is a firm believer in the "one and only" type of love
. Even if this female becomes disillusioned later in life and her ideal appears to have been crushed, she will hold fast to her vision of a one-mate commitment. In turn, she will demand absolute fidelity. Despite her repeated attempts to dominate, this is a woman who truly wants her partner to be the boss. Indeed, if the female governed by Taurus is allowed to assume leadership of the relationship, and then all respect for the mate will doubtless evaporate. In short, however much this woman likes to grumble, she secretly adores to be ruled since it makes her feel protected. It will be necessary to allow the Taurus female a certain amount of freedom to spend as she wishes and it would be wise to let her do so since she is never wilfully extravagant and generally very careful with money.
Perhaps the most devoted and dependable woman of the Zodiac in the sense of a long-term commitment, the Taurus female will endure extreme hardship rather than abandon a partner. She will always be satisfied with her mate's efforts on her behalf and such efforts are likely to be rather ambitious since the Taurus woman is usually quite a pushy character
in a somewhat secret way. This is a female who appears to be calm, reserved and everybody's friend, but beneath that sedate composure resides a great deal of jealousy along with the desire to possess the rich things life has to offer. Affectionate and demonstrative, the female ruled by Taurus has a determined and persistent streak. Although she prefers to give the impression that she is dependent, she is perfectly capable of helping herself if the need arises.
When given the opportunity to reside in a luxurious home, this woman delights in showing off her truly wonderful house-keeping abilities and her gracious social charm.
Taurus & Virgo
Here are two very methodical mates blending extremely well together. Their similar earthy nature gives practical application to many issues. They should be able to see eye to eye on most issues.
Virgo’s need to be exacting and precise comforts the Taurus need to take things slow, nice and easy. They both appeal to each others common sense approach. Virgo takes pride with handling affairs in a meticulous manner, which in turn serves the Taurus’ frugal nature quite well.
These two together can be both sensual and sensible. Taurus loves to cuddle with loads of hugs and kisses.
Virgo can be very sexy when the occasion calls for it. Although Virgo appears quite prim and proper in both dress and mannerism in public, Virgo can be sultry and sexy in private.
Virgo men may appear cold, distant and analytical at times, but would like nothing better than a mate to give him the encouragement he needs. He requires his mate to be of service to him, often working side by side without exaggerated displays of affection. This appeals to the common sense approach of the methodical Taurus who wants steadfast security.
Taurus females should know that the Virgo mate will always want everything just so, that is, his way! No peas touching the potatoes on the plate, etc. Virgos can be finicky eaters and have hygiene habits that can drive Taurus up the wall. Always, always make sure you have showered and flossed before you get close to any Virgo!
Taurus has the patience of a saint and will be able to work right along side of Virgo, while Virgo tends to the exacting details. Banking, record keeping, scheduling, farming/food industries or any type of service oriented field suit these two signs very well.
There is one important factor to remember when Taurus connects with Virgo. Virgo can be a bit of a workaholic, with their head buried in the sand, similar traits to that of a Capricorn. Virgo must remember to cut back on the critical and faultfinding tendencies, otherwise Taurus may build up silent resentment over time.
Taurus must not remain too set in their ways, becoming stuck in a rut. Virgo is a mutable sign and enjoys interesting changes from time to time. It may take this combination a while to get together as Taurus is slow to commit and Virgo is slow to submit.
On the negative side, Virgo's nagging and famous tendency toward criticism can cause Taurus self-doubt, which may easily manifest itself in a show of bullheaded stubbornness. Taurus is also apt to become intensely obstinate about the most illogical of things, something that the super-rational Virgo is unable to understand. The slow pace of Taurus, coupled with this Sign's ideal of deep-rooted comfort, may often appear like a constraint to Virgo, who craves the stimulation of diversity and lively communication.
Nonetheless, all things being equal, the Taurus/Virgo combination is rated high on the ladder of success. There exists a fundamental agreement on what matters in life and the rest is simply details. This romance will last if both partners are able to glide into mutual reliance. Taurus blossoms in the care and variety of Virgo, while Virgo shimmers under the flattering pink light of the romantic Taurus gaze.
Due to Virgo's naturally cautious nature, this relationship can take awhile to develop, but once it's established that both partners are in it for the long haul, it's like a runaway locomotive, running on its own power and difficult to stop. These two Signs have much in common: They highly value common sense and practicality; they're both materialistic but work hard for the creature comforts they so enjoy. Taurus is more sensual and indulgent than Virgo is; Virgo tends to be the inhibitive force in the relationship, tending not to get involved in the chaos of life in favor of analyzing all available options. Virgo's analysis leads to criticism, which Taurus can tend to take too seriously. Conversely, Taurus's stubborn nature can get on Virgo's nerves, causing Virgo to criticize even more! This pair must take care not to take one another too seriously. The good thing is, they're similar enough that they can learn to be patient with one another, especially Virgo, who loves to indulge Taurus's penchant for fine treatment and good food.
Taurus is ruled by Venus (Love and Money) and Virgo is ruled by Mercury (Communication). Both of these Planets are close to the Sun, so they're closely related though they seem very different. Venus is physical; it's about romance and sensuality, both of which are important to Taurus. Mercury is about communication and it's androgynous -- Virgo will take on the form that it chooses. Virgo is very good at understanding other people and can easily learn to be the romantic and sensual partner that Taurus loves. Both partners are so devoted and romantic, their arguments surely won't focus on those issues.
Taurus and Virgo are both Earth Signs. Earth Signs are steady and practical, concerned with possessions. Taurus and Virgo together love to surround themselves with beautiful things -- an opulent home, gorgeous artwork, classy cars. Their love of luxury and their desire to be financially secure ensure that this couple will work hard who never overspend.
Taurus is a Fixed Sign and Virgo is a Mutable Sign. Taurus is stubborn and tends to make up their mind for good; more flexible Virgo can help teach Taurus the value in bending the mind a bit -- when it's practical, of course.
What's the best aspect of the Taurus-Virgo relationship? Their dedication to working toward the same goals. Both partners enjoy luxury and nice things, and Virgo likes helping Taurus achieve their goals. Their common interests and desires make theirs a highly compatible relationship.
your heart belongs to only one.
that's the first.
I have only one word on my mind!
And my muscles are killing me. I'm wishing for a good massage now though. HAHAHA FAT HOPE!
I worked up at 0430 today! I think it's the first time in my life I woke up at such an ungodly hour. Daddy was really sweet! He woke up with me just to make sure I've taken my breakfast and boarded the cab safely. So, I cabbed down to Sentosa Golf Club and started my day at work at Clarins. It was absolutely GOOOOD! Perhaps I should sum up what I've been doing there for 15 hours. >.< src="http://lh4.ggpht.com/smuaxckk/SGUGnFY6MpI/AAAAAAAACt0/fkL-PoXd4xY/P2706080001.jpg?imgmax=576">
Christina got bored at the Halfway House and she ruined a banana, like this:
And at the very end of the day, we got goodie bags with Clarins beauty products worth more than $200. My beloved sun-screen is inside the bag. hawhaw. Tina and I were aiming for that. :D And my 15 hours pay! Please come earlier! HAHA!
Clarins' Garden of Love event at Tangs tomorrow! I doubt we'll have the same welfare over there. Metamorphosis mock camp tomorrow and sunday too!
And you know, I couldn't imagine that I have not slept for 20 hours already.
I miss you.
My indulgence with Jessica during dinner:
