i did it.
long story cut short - i got back access to my blog account. HOORAH!!
i hate to see this blog go. i like it a lot. but i cant keep updating my password everyday (ok, maybe not everyday. but frequently!) just to gain access to this blog. it's something to do with my email. and hackers. my paypal account got hacked recently and they spent $800 on my mom's credit card. thankfully we solved the problem today. and they were from australia..? anyway! i hate making people move my links (if i even am a link on anybody's blog..) but it's better that i use that account. i like that name better anyway :p
so if you read my blog, i'm sincerely sorry about all the changing of links so frequently but i'm working on getting an antivirus software. so i promise, only one last time,

photo dump! i'm back home in singapore now and i almost died of heat when i stepped out of the airport. i slept all the way from denver > LA > tokyo > singapore, so i've been awake since 1:30 in the morning, my time. the jet lag doesnt kick in till 2-3 days later for me. i baked cookies for dilys and i just now and now i'm eating dinner. boy, does home cooked food taste great or what.
i went out today as well. mid-town for lunch and topshop. wow, i havent been there in ages. i didnt plan on buying anything since i didnt have money but my uncle was in town and he owed me a christmas present so i ended up getting a pretty floral dress. i need to go back tomorrow to return it for a smaller size and the zipper is broken anyway. i didnt even realise there was a zipper when i was trying on the dress in the fitting room so i couldnt fit into my size. alas, i got the size up, went home, tried on the dress. too big. i was supposed to go to town with dilys tomorrow but neither of us have money for the topshop warehouse sale so we're just going to go around town instead. same old same old.
well, i'm beat, so i'm just going to go finish up my dinner, take a shower and then go to bed. one more thing! follow me on twitter!

last two are my ~artsy fartsy~ things in my moleskine in which i also do math in, hu hu.
so for the past two-ish months i've been gone i was studying for my finals and hanging out with my friends after that but right now i'm in the states spending some time with my family here during this festive season of thanksgiving and christmas. speaking of thanksgiving, 40 family members + 1 friend of my cousin's turned up for our annual thanksgiving feast/potluck thing. that's practically my whole class, wow. there were so many types of food, i had to resist myself from eating the whole tub of banana pudding that my aunt mary jane always makes. and pumpkin pie. and corn bread. and sweet potatoes, ah.
so before i arrived in new orleans, i visited santa monica, LA, which was so beautiful and the weather was lovely. my dad and i stayed by the santa monica pier which had one of the prettiest ferris wheels at night. third street promenade which had stores like a huge urban outfitters, american apparel and steve madden was just a walk away as well. pity we were only there for 1 day though, it wouldve been nice to stay a few more days to take the tours around the hollywood area.
i havent been out and about, roaming the streets while i'm here. just basically chilling like a chinchilla with my cousin and the occasional trips to target and the movies. whoever hasnt seen the movie "old dog" should definitely see it, it's so hilarious. i didnt buy much for myself either. the american apparel i went to on magazine street didnt have anything i liked except the pocket skirt and t-shirt dress (which isnt my fave either but i got it anyway). the urban outfitters along the french quarter was good though - i wanted to buy this blouse that i cant find online but i didnt have enough with me that day. i might just have to ask my aunt to take me down magazine street (LF store!!) and to urban outfitters one last time before i leave. my dad is giving me another $200 more so i can go buy this pretty skirt i saw at a local boutique. speaking of LF stores, the limited edition LF x Jeffrey Campbell alexa wedge bootie looks so much more patent in real life than on the website. still contemplating on whether to get the knock offs or ask for the real ones for christmas..? heh heh no chance.
so anyway, i may update again with more photos later on during the week but i should stop now since im starting to get a headache from using the computer so much..heh heh.

gap boys checkered shirt, gap denim skirt, timberland boat shoes, coach bag, giraffe ring from laforet, tokyo, handmade rock ring
view of the sunrise at 6:30am from my house window on the 22nd floor, so beautiful.
lazy (and repeat!?! wow i'm bad) outfit, i just went to watch 'imagine that' today, featuring eddie murphy. oh my god, that man is so funny, his facial expressions are just amazing. on the other hand, examinations are over and i am free until the end of the year. next week i'm getting my results back though so, wish me luck. i think i did okay overall, i mean, besides leaving one whole geography question out, which is like 25 marks by the way, because i read the instructions wrong. go me.
well, you can choose to move on or live in the moment, and i choose to move on. photobucket and flickr are being really annoying right now. flickr is so slow on my macbook, i dont even know why. oh well. ooh, yesterday i went to the mac store and picked up the tinted lipbalm and nude rose lipstick from the dsquared collection. it isnt amazing but i just thought i'd get it anyway since i wanted a new lipstick and lipbalm. then i went to topshop and picked up a cardigan. oh, and upgraded myself to leather timberland boatshoes, heh.
i dont really have that much to say, actually. i thought i had a lot to say but i guess not. oh yeah i almost forgot, the other day, we were at the pet store and my mom and i saw this beautiful chocolate labrador that is 3 months old. you know how some dogs just have that name? the one that you instantly know he is? well, his name is ben. he is so adorable and we are considering to get him. he's a puppy and a labrador, so it will be easier to train him. and he's a playful dog, just like my current jack russell so they'll probably happy with each other. let's just hope my dad says yes. fingers crossed everybody!

yesssss, one more paper to go and i'm free for the rest of the year! that sounds really good tomorrow. after 10am tomorrow morning, i will be the happiest girl alive. one tip for people sitting for examinations, especially subjects like biology - cramming at the last minute for 12 hours does not work and you will not be able to write 12 chapters of notes if alone.
so yesterday rachall came over after school to write/share biology notes. ritz biscuits, natachan orange juice, japanese rice crackers and tea were our best friends for the day. i think i put on weight, but i'm too scared to step on the weighing machine, HA HA. surprisingly though, the biology paper today was relatively easy. oh, and, they gave us a piece of graph paper so obviously i thought there was a graph question. at the end of the paper, i still hadnt used my graph paper so i was panicking, thinking that i missed out a question. 10 minutes before the paper ended, and after i had read the paper over and over again for about 15 times, the teacher comes in and says that we dont need to use the graph paper because there is no graph question. thank you for telling me that 10 minutes before the examination ended.
tomorrow is my last paper - additional mathematics, which im definitely not the best in. i barely make it pass single digits. i dont care how much you love math, additional math is not fun and shouldnt even be a subject. please, tell me when i will be using binomial theorem and logarithms in the future. mm, after i am free tomorrow, clara and i are going to town to watch 'the september issue', the real devil wears prada, featuring anna wintour.
outfit pictures soon maybe?

i went to my neighbour's house the other day because she was having her moving out garage sale and i got this really really pretty moonstone and tarnished silver ring. she's a jewelry designer and gets her products made in india. she only had 3 rings and the other really pretty cobalt blue ring was a size too small for my large fingers, sad. besides the ring, i also wanted to get this gorgeous turquoise, tarnished silver and black cord necklace which was such a statement piece. it was $95, a bit too much for me to afford at that point in time.
today i went to the library to study with my friend after my literature paper. imagine, going to school at 6:45am and having a paper starting at 7:50am and right after that, you get to go home and do whatever you want. a whole day, just for studying. i really should have taken my mom's advice of reading topics of what i've learnt everyday after school for about half an hour. maybe then i wouldnt be panicking about not being able to remember things. oh well, now i know.
also, i'm sorry about the largeness of the last post. i'll divide my favorites into parts next time round.
