Awards and Media Appearances

This is an award-winning blog you’re reading! Or about to start reading, hopefully.
I won these awards in Singapore but I don’t live in Singapore anymore.
The UK’s my home now, so I’m waiting for my new home to give me some awards, yes?

    Nice one there. You look great! That’s how you are. I hate how some camwhores use their sexiness (or ugliness, in the case of Lao Zhar Bo) to promote their ugly weblogs. But you, conversely, have put in hard work into your blog and your posts. I can tell. The devil is in WordPress :).

    Pretty. Charming. Sexy. Nice.

    Your life is perfect. Your life is the dream of all the girls. You are the dream of all the guys. I wonder how many people would have such a smooth-running life like yours.

    You’re a pretty pampered girl, I guess. I’d never get my parents to get the consoles I want for me. I must work hard to save up money for it. Ah….

    I’d never get to play MMORPGs for long-term. It’s just too expensive. Yeah, that expensive, you bet.

    Games are great. But not all games are created equally. Some games just suck, full stop. Examples: MapleStory, RuneScape.

    Argh… I just can’t go on. Do you think so? Yes, there are great games like GTA, MGS, WoW, Crysis and FF. But do you think games like MapleStory and RuneScape totally sucks?

    My life isn’t exactly smooth-running, but it has its good days. :) I’ve tried MapleStory. Yeah I suppose it kinda sucks since I got bored after 2 weeks. RuneScape didn’t even look appealing enough for me to want to try it.

    It’s great to have someone that agrees with me.

    But than again, everybody that doesn’t play MapleStory/RuneScape usually think it sucks.

    I’m currently trying Hellgate London right now. I’m glad a friend bought it. He got bored of it, so I can play on his account! Great!

    Excellent blog sheylara; I must confess that I came here after realizing I had a minimized superwall on my profile and my cousin had sent me an obscene photo of infected organs (with some message about STD’s).

    Like you I only installed it so that I could send some of my artwork to other friends, and after the disgust of my cousins forwarded message decided to see if I could google “super wall junk” for others who shared my irritation … well that got me here, g’day shelara AWESOME BLOG!!!

    Regarding the short film “Mara’s Playground”… What is the cultural climate like in Singapore toward non-heterosexuality (such as bisexuality)?

    @Damion: While in general, the society tolerates such alternative lifestyles and meritocracy is still the main yardstick for success, this tolerance isn’t enshrined in statute:)

    There was one more bus that featured the ad of you and master cheif. It was on service 16 and it’s quite an old bus they put the ad on. (1992 Volvo B10M Mk 3)

    Anyway, i do keep a photo of the bus that i took myself. It is the bus that you posted here. It is a 2008 Scania K230UB and that bus operates on Service 128 and Service 265
