Shopping is my passion

Monday, December 25, 2006

I have been totally absorbed in my reading in hand,a kind of light book that doesn't require me to type my laptop keyboard too frequently searching for meanings of words.So I finished reading it pretty fast.And I have moved on to my second book.I got both of them last night,on my late night shopping at Jurong Point.I have been slacking since I came back from KL,kinda of moody and lazy,not feeling like doing anything at all,not even sleeping.I turned down two rigorous invitations by Eveline to attend the mass at Expo.I am so stubborn,gosh,I just realized this.I shouldn't have done that but I really couldn't help myself.My life has been out of track and I'm so lost myself.I am sorry and this is all I can do.
At night,I managed to summon all my efforts to go to Boon Lay Market to buy bus tickets for my family.I have been procrastinating the whole day and it was really time to kickstart everything although doing it seems like starting a cranky engine of an wrecked rusty old car.I have already made enough mess but I am not going to add some more...hopefully,given my current rueful mood.How to get out of this smothering world of my own?I don't know and don't care to know.I will eventually figure out the solution,if there is any.Back to the matter,I couldn't,and still can't,find any tickets for my family.I never expected this before.Thought it would all go smoothly.Thought I was able to get them effortlessly.Thought after getting the ticket it was still early to go to Jurong Point to unwind myself.I think way too much.All the plannings and thinkings are not working,apparently.I got to change my plan.I went to search for other travel agents,feeling wistful there were still tickets left.It is fruitless.I went to JP in the end.It was opened until 11 so I was not late for some shoppings.Feeling aimless,I rambled around,eyes wandering for something interesting.I ended up buying those two books I mentioned previously.That's all.HAHA.
It is not much better the next day.I couldn't sleep well and I woke up slightly too early.I began calling other travel agents,but the responses I got are unexplainably all the same!They are all booked until 31st Dec!Is it a plod,a conspiration to throw me deeper into my dispirited state,or what?
Today is Christmas day,which also means that it is only one day away before my family comes to Singapore.I made another effort to call to Konsortium,asking if they sold tickets from JB to Penang,and the answer is NO.Wah help!!!

I feel dizzy the whole day.I can't do things as effectively as I want,but it is better than doing nothing,wasting my time lying on my bed.So whenever I feel that I am capable of getting up,I sit in front of my laptop and well,do whatever stuff I can do.I am on my 5th book,and gosh,it is a very challenging book and frequently I find myself either flipping back and forth the pages of my dictionary or busily typing words in online dictionary.

Random Post

::It has been a nearly perfect holiday so far.Now I have stepped into the 12th day of my holiday.Time flies so swiftly.I do whatever I want to do without being stifled by oppressive duties and fixed schedules that so overwhelm me during schooltime.Of course there are still times when I feel melancholic and moody,amid the mirthful events I have.
::So far I have read 4 books with a grand total of 1740 pages.I need to slow down my pace,otherwise I run out of books within short time and get to buy new costly ones.Currently thinking of alternatives such as getting books from library but I doubt it has interesting books that I want to read.How if it is really unable to lure me to get some books out of its shelves?
::Before I went to bed last night,I skimmed my newly bought magazine whose content is basically advertisements.Well,I went through a quick look at the Christmas catalogue from Centrepoint,hoping that I could find some affordable stuff and was startled by the price of a 48-piece chocolates set from SINS Choc Shoppe,it is $92.40.Kinda of thinking that it is the true sin,spending so much money and storing fat into my body=.
::Three days ago,I went to JP for a quick walk around.I saw a very tempting offer from The Body Shop,45% for Olive Body Scrub.Yakk,I longed for it.But I didn't buy it in the end.Call me weird.Think I am transforming from being a spendthrift to being a skinflint.Or perhaps I am just being a freak since I'm in the middle of my financial crisis.I am so short of money that I didn't dare to get anything out of their shop when I went to Vivocity the day before except those irresistible packets of Swiss Delice from The Cocoa Tree.

ODAC Trip to Gunung Angsi,Negeri Sembilan

A night in Malacca
This is the highest point I could get
My yummy Dunkin Donuts

Dinner at a restaurant in Seremban

This is my first post after exam.Holiday has long started.And my trip to Gunung Angsi has just ended...
ODAC trip to Gunung Angsi this time isn't as exciting as the one to Cameron Highlands.The trekking is not as difficult as the previous one,apart from the cliff,but it is more tiring,much more tiring that I seriously felt like I was climbing the stairway to heaven.The trek is very steep and it goes all the way to the top.And I got the real challenge when I tried to climb the cliff.I was really scared.The climbing itself didn't really pose a challenge on me.What I really afraid of is the treacherous consequences if I lost hold of my grip and fell down.Nothing to back me up.It will be a play of my body and the hardness of the rock.I finally managed to reach the top.But by the time I reached there,I was so scared that my whole body was shaking.I didn't have the nerve to stand up and enjoy the view.The view is not as amazing as the one in Cameron Highlands.There are not much to take.I simply sat there.And trekking down was not better.Thank for the help of Munir and Shu Feng(he called himself a walking tree because of this haha.If not because of your help I might have fallen countless times,blame the slippery trek >.<).I was able to go back to the starting point safely.We spent a night in Malacca,in a great inn called Heeren Inn.The room was cozy,and equipped with TV and aircon!I bought some Dunkin Donuts while waiting for the bus to Malacca.I had yummy tom yam fried rice for dinner.Coming back from the trip,I rested the whole day.My muscle was aching I could barely bend my knees.It was a great torment for me to walk up and down the stairs.I need a time off before joining the next trip.And next time I will climb Bukit Timah hill first before I try the real scary hiking.
