I met a boy…

I met a boy…

I knew him before… When I was young, adventurous and ‘foolish’…

He had a mind of someone twice his age…

Or that’s how I could explain his desire for me

He was blinded to my baggage… Or maybe he was not..

He longed for my touch… My embrace and wet kisses…

I thought he was cute… Tall and handsome…

A keeper but not for ‘right’ now…

I excited him and only he knew why…

His friends made fun of him…

They couldn’t understand why many roads he crossed… Just to be with me…

Only he could see the jewel where they saw dirt…

He cherished the diamond in the rough…

I knew he was special but didn’t know how much…

I felt I wasn’t good enough… The lie I believed…

My ‘fun’ life didn’t match his… Or so I concluded…

And so to the ‘bad boys’ I went… Throwing my pearls before swine…

And then he stopped looking for me… Stopped wanting me… It all stopped…

At first, it didn’t matter…

But soon enough I realised my knight in shining armour wasn’t a dime a dozen…

The years passed and I wished to find another so pure…

I encountered the clowns, magicians and oh the tax collectors…

Then on to the scene, he popped again… As sweet as could be…

Making me blush like it was our first date…

But now… He’s about to get married…

I wish she knew how special he was… Is…

I let him go… Released him reluctantly… And life continued….

But then I met him last night… I held him so tight and it all felt so right...

I was back in his arms where I belonged… Even if it was only in my dreams…

Crazy Rich…

The weather is getting a bit erm… ‘Cozy’ on my side of the planet lol. Looks like autumn is all dressed up and ready to go! I have mentioned several times how much I love Autumn… The brown leaves… The scarves blah de blah *rolls eyes* (don’t want to bore you). But I can’t get away from the feeling of “falling in love” just before Christmas *straight face*. Yes, yes… Blame all the 90’s romantic movies I indulge in… I’m just a hopeful romantic *throws glitter to the subtle sound of Michael Buble saying something about not meeting me yet?* 

So while we are on this topic of ‘love’, here’s a flashback for you Crazy Rich Asians – The MOVIE!  Hahaha… I missed the merry celebrations when the rest of the world watched it in cinemas lol… I just never got round to it… or maybe I didn’t think I’d enjoy it this much! Little did I know I was in for a shocker!

So you can imagine my joy when it was listed as a “new” release on one of my flights…(quite apt, cos it sure was new to me!) So while the plane taxied (is there a word like that? Lol) the movie began to play… Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect… but as the film went on, I went off crying like a newborn I tell you hahaha…

It hit me so hard, the tissues couldn’t keep up! Luckily for me, it was a night flight *wipes sweat from brows* so pretty much lights out with most people knocked out after the meal… On my row, we had me on the window seat and ‘no smiling’ grandma on the aisle seat -an empty seat in between us- (she kept frowning at E V E R Y O N E on the flight… wonder why *side eye*)

This movie is a rom-com on a different level, funny but not cheeky… if that makes any sense haha… Looking back now, for sure I’d go see it again at the cinema if it was still on lol. (Side note- I’m a ‘superhero’ kind of girl first. You know, Captain America, Avengers blah blah. You get the picture? Then ‘pretty woman’ movies next)

Back to the movie lol… everyone needs a best friend like Peik Lin  (university– a place true friends are made and where life meets reality lol)… and oh… Nick… Isn’t he the ‘perfect boyfriend’… Dreamy… charming… sweet…? I could go on and on about this movie, but I’m pretty sure there are a few like me who are late to the fantastic party that’s ‘CRAZY RICH ASIANS’ lol… so go order it, it’s worth the hype…

Good thing I stuffed my laptop above lol… Probably would have flooded my keyboard with tears. So maybe yeah it was a good idea leaving it up there lol… I just kept thinking after the movie ended… “How awesome ‘movie’ romance can be..”

Well, cheers to the real-life Nicks’ out there… Singapore see you soon…*throws confetti*

Looking out the window, I smiled as the clouds enveloped us…zzzz

Shopping list…

Yep, that “oh so important” piece of paper we sometimes fool ourselves we don’t need when we go shopping hahaha… You know, that moment you think to yourself you have it all in your head… Then as soon as you step into the supermarket or store you find yourself in the can opener section making funny noises, excited about the many different colours you can get for $5… Or the very worst… You just ‘wing’ it and load up your shopping trolley till you hear ‘card declined’ or too heavy to carry *side-eye*

I pretty much shop the same every month… How boring I know. Maybe 95% same items or as Tesco reminds me -“favourites”…. Why are they all in my business though lol? The remaining 5% are for items I want to try after watching let’s say, Jamie Oliver throwing all sorts into the fire and miraculously a mouth-watering dish appears in 2mins *rolls eyes*. He always makes it look so easy… But to be fair to him, his meals are something you could cook with zero kitchen experience haha. They always look so gorgeous and real… Like a meal you can actually eat at your mate’s house or something your Nan makes every Sunday when you go visit her… Not like some others who just like fancy dancy looking meals…. *lips sealed* I don’t want no ‘angry chef’ putting me on blast on Instagram or anywhere else for that matter lol… How I find myself drifting amazes me honestly…

So while looking at what’s left of my shopping list – see below-

Looks like a rescue kit lol

I wondered how fantastic it’ll be to have a ‘boyfriend/girlfriend’ shopping list hehe… I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s ever thought of this… Yes, just pop into the ‘relationship/ready to be tied down’ corner shop with your list and pick your item off the shelf hahaha…

Come on, let’s give it a go… I’ll start… Number 1- must love dogs…

Jingle Bells…?

Yes, yes, yes… It’s almost that time of the year when some of us lose almost all sense of logic haha. We suddenly begin to believe in wishes, Santa Claus and finding love just before Christmas like in the movies *shakes head*.

Isn’t it weird how the characters share a kiss and suddenly it starts snowing and everyone starts tearing up… And for some strange reason, the scene can’t be complete without a Starbucks pumpkin latte matte or whatever festive flavour they decide to gorge out haha… Well, I for one love autumn/winter… Something romantic about it… We’ll talk about that another time hehe…

So, the office Christmas party season is around the corner. Yes, some of you might think it’s a bit too early to start planning (or too late according to Selfridges- don’t they have Christmas decorations etc out sometime in April?? Lol). Thanks to my local Marks & Spencers, I mean their fantastic in house ‘Dj’, I couldn’t help but wish for a special someone to serenade me off my feet. I’m that lady swinging her hips, shaking her head and singing along to the music haha. I wonder what the guys watching the CCTV think each time they see me belting out the tunes, twirling on the shop floor…lol.

This particular day I went shopping as usual at M&S… It seemed like they had Michael Buble live in concert on replay. Boy was I excited and singing my heart out lol. There’s just something about him, the way he sings that reminds me of Christmas. All of a sudden I got this ‘great’ idea of having him come along to mesmerise us with a few tunes at the office party. And guess what? I mentioned it to my manager *covers face*. Don’t blame me, blame the Christmas feelings coming over me. Of course, she laughed it off… But in my heart, I believe my wish will come true…

there he goes… About to break a million hearts (pic-Evening Standard)

Just in case you happen to bump into Michael at the shops, the first-class lounge or the gas station… Please can you ask him to help a young lady out and make her dream come true like in the movies….?

Mr Chocolate…

It’s a rainy day today and I had a flashback to one of my ‘love’ stories (blame it on the weather haha…) So here goes, hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed reliving it!

There are times I’d plan to just ‘pop’ in on social media but then end up spending a lot of time scrolling through Instagram stories of “friends”, celebrities, random strangers… and catching up on all the trending news… It was on one of those days it happened. My phone dropped! I was laying in bed with my phone in one hand and then BANG, DROP, CRACK lol… Felt like I dropped with it haha

You know how it is, right? You’ve dropped it so many times in the past and nothing happens… With each fall, you hold your breath hoping “it’s nothing to worry about”. (Especially if it’s one of those 4 digit costing ones *side eye*)Yep, for a while, that was the case… At least till that day! Guess like many things in life, I took it for granted for so long… I believed my phone was somewhat indestructible smh… Well, jokes on me now *rolls eyes*

So early the next morning, (thankfully it was a Saturday) I was out of the house to go get it fixed. I had no idea where exactly the repair store was.  All I knew was it wasn’t too far from home but dodgy enough for me to hide my wallet, anything worth anything lol…

En route, I stopped to ask for directions and decided to get some money from the cashpoint. I didn’t want to use my card in case I got a notification weeks later that someone on some remote island tried buying a 76″ tv with it haha. And there he was, Mr chocolate walking by… Like a knight in shining armour to the rescue! Pretty much accosted me. He said I had a frown on my face and as a good citizen, he stopped to offer some assistance. Yeah right! I didn’t believe it then and still don’t believe it now lol. We got talking and he kindly followed me to the dodgy phone shop. Yeah, he was nice which stood out, funny and quite attractive too hehe. Extra brownie points! We walked and talked… I felt something…

Weeks later, my phone now fixed and back to my online updates, I noticed Mr Chocolate had evolved into a prima donna… Nope, I wasn’t having it… Seemed he wanted a fan club and I sure wasn’t about that life! 

I guess I’m better off with some real food than chocolate. At least they stay humble no matter the appeal…lol
