mum knows best

I received a belated birthday card from my mum in Singapore 9 days after the actual day. I simply love the design on the front of the card, it’s very shopaholic! mum really knows me the best.


circle of friendship

it’s been 3 long days and i still haven’t contacted my friend whom i had a fall out with in amsterdam.

i don’t know why it is taking me so long to pick up the phone and talk things out with her. what would i say? should i call or would an sms be a safer ice-breaker? what if she doesn’t reply? i feel really terrible at the prospect of losing a good friend, but somehow, i just feel like letting the guilt eat away my conscience for now. it always seems easier to wallow in self-pity than make an effort to resolve a problem.

i got to know a new friend at the cafe near my place and she asked if i’ll like to hang out with her some time.

is this the circle of friendship? when one fades, another blossoms? is something precious that is broken not meant to be fixed? when fixed, there might be visible cracks. if a friendship can’t withstand a little setback, does it mean that it is not meant to be? should i just give up an old friend to pursue new ones?

i’m sure friendships shouldn’t be a 1-for-1 replacement. and the heart is definitely big enuff for more than 1 person. otherwise, why would parents have more than 1 kid??? (but of course one should only have 1 husband, at 1 time)

i’m waiting to hit rock-bottom then i’ll think about doing something.  wish me luck.

spaced out

just got back from a horrible weekend trip to amsterdam. It was meant to be a fun and exciting holiday with 2 good friends, away from our husbands and kids. it turned out to be such a disaster.

I should have seen it coming after

a) eating 9 pieces of KFC hot wings at 1 a.m

b) making my own bloody mary concoction at an argentinian restaurant

c) having 2 long slabs of greasy all-you-can-eat spare ribs dripping with garlic-oil dressing at the same restaurant for lunch and

d) breathing in 2nd hand marijuana smoke from people in the public square.

I think what pushed me off the wall was an innocent looking marijuana-laced muffin shared amongst 3 girls for tea-break.

Greasy food and space cakes can make people do crazy things.

Like kill a friendship.
