It’s NYE today, so I’m grumpy

Oh, 2010 is almost over.

Nothing new there.

I still hate new years like I always have. If you look at all my December blog archives, you’ll notice a similar vein running through each of them. I am usually grumpy, depressed and/or angsty during the year end.

I won’t repeat what I’ve already said every other year; you can check my archives if you want to know; they all sound the same; wow I’ve got so many semi colons in this sentence.


New Year posts


But I’ll just say that this week has been hectic, which makes me feel quite rushed into the new year, which is not good.

Everyone wanted to meet up this week to “catch up” before the year ends. I had two interview shoots scheduled. And there are so many freaking new awesome games on the iPad!

Speaking of which, I will do another iPad games review post soon, okay? Or are you tired of them already?

So, I’ll do something different this year.

I’ll make a New Year Resolution list.

I think that means I’m getting older. Or maybe I’m just feeling older because I’m so exhausted this week, having to wake up early every day for shoots and meetings.

On a slightly unrelated note, I just started taking ginseng powder (like, yesterday) which I bought in Seoul and which has sat at home untouched for two weeks because I’ve been too lazy to open the box.

So let’s see if I start feeling younger after a while of taking that, assuming I don’t give up after two days.

It’s bitter, you know.

Okay, list.


2011 Resolutions

  1. Take icky ginseng powder every day.
  2. Blog about it every day? No, I mean just blog every day.
  3. Start running again.
  4. Finish learning the two Korean self-study books I bought.
  5. Start learning Malay also?
  6. Keep human hours.
  7. Clean my room.


I shall be realistic and stop there. Every item I add means one more item I won’t be fulfilling. Haha.

I thought I could resolve to stop buying iPad games compulsively. But I hear little laughters going off in my brain whenever I entertain that thought.

I have evil little imps in my head.

Maybe that’s why I haven’t been able to succeed at “keeping human hours” since adolescence. Darn imps!

Now, on a totally unrelated note, I have given Nanny Wen a new name. I’m calling her Buggy Wen from now because she’s a bug!

As in, she’s always bugging people when she’s bored or restless or just feeling buggy, which is always.


Buggy Wen and Sheylara


The last time we were stuck on a flight together, she kept bugging me to play on my iPad. That was after she was done hijacking it and playing Plants vs Zombie till she was bored of it.

“Your turn! Play something!” she said, waving my iPad at me.

“I don’t want to,” I said, “I’m tired.”

“Play lah,” she persuaded.

“You continue playing lah.”

“I’m tired.”

“Then why must I play?”

“Cos I want to watch.”

I decided to humour her. I started up Chinatown Wars.

Two minutes into my game, I glanced over at her and she was happily snoozing away.

Stupid girl!


Christmas dinner


I spent Christmas with her and would choose to spend the new year with her so that I can be grumpy, depressed and angsty at her. But she’s now in Beijing on holiday. Huh!

I shall have something to be grumpy at her for when she comes back!

Alright, I’m done rambling.

Thanks for reading my blog this year. Thinking about the love and support I’ve received from you all makes me less grumpy and depressed, so thanks!

Come back more regularly so I will feel compelled to update more diligently.

Have a great 2011, everyone.

    @Sheylara: Strange, that pic of the four of you seems focused on one half at the expense of the other. But yeah, here’s to a blessed 2011 to you and your loved ones! Looking forward to another year of vicarious experiences in Sheylara-land:)

    You ever notice how the day before the new year you pen a post that says you are not ready, but every time the new year starts, you get better and have a better time than before? :)

    I trust 2011 will be the same for you.

    Have a great year Sheylara!
