I wanna scream. I don’t have a car, I don’t drive and I don’t wanna waste my husband’s time and because I claim 40 bucks on transport, I don’t get to claim the day off for working a whole bloody day on Sunday. My time, my worth is not even worth a day, not even half a day and cab ride…. REALLY REALLY….
fucking kidding me. keep it up please why don’t you.
Messed up Lungs September 21, 2010Posted by Marie in Fitness & Health, Gripes.

In May I got pretty sick, all of us did. I blame Mariana. She hardly gets sick so I reckon that the virus that finally brought her to her knees was a particularly bad strain. I got it really bad, 5 visits to the doctors, Allen had 3 visits and Rylen 2 visits. My lungs turned to shite and I now have asthma (again).
Being pregnant again and getting a bad cough this round from the husband means I can’t use the inhaler as often as I like/need. I use it only if I’ve spent more than half a day struggling to breath easily and can’t take it any more. Sometimes it goes away you see and other times I really need it.
Today I ran for the bus and I was winded. It’s not a fun feeling… I know know how MH feels after 15 mins on the cross trainer. I’m still going to try going for a jog this weekend and I really can’t deal with it then, I’ll sign up for the gym on campus and give up 2 lunches a week to try and not turn into a lard ass. My arms really are starting to gross me out as well and I really miss my collarbone.

I had 300 people on my facebook, let me tell you with a few business contacts who I deal with often enough to save their numbers on my phone I still don’t have 300 names. I did a lil clean up and deleted some ppl…still too many I think.
I don’t understand how my cousin has my email address and still write to me via Facebook. An old friend who I went on a holiday with, laughed about sex stories with, she’s moving away for good and she contacts me after about 2 years of relative silence on… you guessed it Facebook. She’s got my number, she has my email address and heck she’s even on my msn… but she uses Facebook.
Sometimes I want to just delete myself, like what I did with all other similar websites but I have to admit I’m a Facebook Addict and I like looking and sharing photos (well, not so fond of the awful blur shots and continuous shots of that one subject – usually a kid while the photographer tries to get a PROPER photo). Really, it’s called editing, you don’t have to purge all your damn shitty shots on your Facebook photos page. I cannot stand those people and I usually never make it through their whole album, I don’t like my time being wasted, it’s bloody annoying.
I also hate when people I haven’t seen for ages add me and then silence… nothing, no hi, how you doing? Nothing… WTF…again, delete and don’t waste my time.
I’m ashamed to say I have added people I’m pretty sure I don’t know or just cannot remember. There’s this one girl and she wishes me Happy Birthday every single year and comments sometimes so I would feel bad if I delete her but really I REALLY don’t know her. I wish I had asked her 3 years back how I even know her … too late now.
Facebook = love hate

Sucks to be stuck between a wall and a crappy place and there’s nothing you can do about it right about now… really really SUCKS.

So the death sentence… it’s like this, everyone knows how serious and cruel Singapore is when it comes to drugs the simplest thing to do is to not carry drug in at all, ever. So it’s sad that Yong Vui Kong is so young and perhaps it was a stupid mistake but you know the rules, did you think you won’t get caught? Well you did and as cruel, inhuman and insane as it might be for most it is the one thing that keeps the streets clean. I’ve never done drugs, it just wasn’t something that’s easy to get a hold of. For that I am thankful and if I have to raise Ry in Singapore this would be the plus point. But I do feel for Yong’s family, it’s sad.
I also watch my bag like a hawk when I go to Thailand and Bali… have you seen the insides of their jails? Shudder!
I spend way too much time changing toilet rolls August 24, 2010Posted by Marie in Uncategorized.
So I have a maid, now I don’t in general like spending time with a person I don’t have sex with or have blood relations overnight, very single day, it’s not right, it’s not normal. One day when my kids become teenagers I would really like to just hire a part time helper who comes in to clean, dust, iron and fold. But for now I don’t really have a choice.
According to the husband I treat my helper wayyyyy too well, rolls eyes. I guess deep down inside I want to be able to cook, clean, get water myself so that when the day finally comes and a stranger is no longer staying under my roof, it would be a rude shock to my system. Of course the husband might have a few fits or he might be able to bribe Rylen into getting him his breakfast, water, etc.
However, maids in Singapore are not cheap and sometimes it does annoy me when the baby’s bath water isn’t cleared and how often I have to change the toilet roll. Heck, I even have to make sure the husband’s towels get changed every 3 days… but I’m conducting an experiment to see how long before the husband notices how gross his towel is and it’s day 5. BUT SHOCKING NEWS… it seems people in Singapore are gross… cos in general they change towels once a week!! Then I was told someone I can’t mention a name… once a month!! Oh dear gawd, ok I know I’m the girl who will use her foot to open a door and if someone sits on my bed when they’ve been outside it makes me want to cry, but eeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Deep breath, once a week is fine especially if you sun your towel (which I do) but once a month, my insides are itchy.
P/S: I’m also the girl who can get caked in mud, sweat, jump into a quarry and take public transport home and I still won’t rest my arms on the Changi Village hawker table and I’d NEVER EVER sit down in my home in dirty sweaty shorts till I have a shower. But I digress….
Lets see how long before the dude says “Woman, my towel stinks!”

I swear two day weekends are just too too too short. On Sat we attended Growing Up Gifted’s trial class, I’m pretty happy with it, the teachers are nice and they speak well. Rylen also connected with a lil girl there… till she pulled her hair :(. A few minutes at the play gym and then we headed for lunch. It is a joy to have lunch with her these days since we can give her a lil of something or another from our plates and it keeps her happy.
Dropped her off at home for her nap and we head down to Middle Road to get party supplies, it’s not easy this Minnie Mouse theme, everything is MICKEY! Blah. Had about 15 minutes to lie in bed before she got home from her trip to the park and the madness starts again :).
Sunday, R dragged me to Orchard to help him get pants and he decided that nothing was to his liking and/or everything was too expensive, sigh. We did get her stuff:- her own fork and spoon, crayons, a stuffed unicorn which for some reason I want to name Unagi could be due to this *click* har har heh.
Did manage to get in a nap, oh bliss… till the rag and bone man came *honk honk honk* so annoying and if that doesn’t get to you, Deza stomping around and singing will, sigh. A walk to park with the two mad dogs and the very quiet baby girl and I was soooo tired.
It’s still not over cos I had promised Axl Liver Treats for his birthday, so while cooking dinner I’m blending stinky liver, adding oats and wholemeal and eggs and oil and then kneading the smell mixture into little balls, gag. I really do love my dogs. They (the dogs) then spent the rest of the hour watching the oven and Stomper was left to ‘guard’ the treats and Axl was sent to beg.
Did I mention that Rylen’s 6th tooth is making an appearance so she woke up at 10pm, 2am and 5.30am oh and that I had/have 2 boring meetings to attend…zzzzzzzzzz. 5 hours sleep is just not enough.

I love my friends I really do but sometimes I look at facebook and there this other group of old schoolmates; NCC girls and they’re big group and still close and they all go on holidays with husbands, boyfriends and kids. Everyone seems happy and it blows my mind. How freaking wonderful. But then again those are just pictures right, who knows what goes on… but they seem connected in so many ways.
I dunno maybe when more of my friends have kids or get married things will slowly go in that direction but for now I have to remind myself that no one is perfect, I know I’m not so maybe everyone should be cut some slack. I just wish that when people made remarks they would think about what they were saying cos you know karma is a bitch. Now, nice thoughts about how wonderful my friends are in all other ways.
