How am I special?

Feeling a bit blue, I need to pop myself happy a bit. And what better to do than to make a slightly more narcissistic post than before? ๐Ÿ™‚ As I was riding the MRT home, I asked myself, what made me different from most women? Given that everybody’s beautiful and special, there should be a […]

This and That

Okay, I succuumbed. I’m a sucker for deals and after getting the second letter from Chunghwa Telecom that I’m one of their platinum subscribers (guess all those NT$1,000++ bills paid off) and deserve a fresh mobile phone at a NT$1,500 discount, I finally gave in and bought this beauty: Sigh, so I’ve been on a […]

You’ve Got Mail!

Look what came in the mail! That’s what you get for losing your pink one — NT$1,600 poorer (only got the 1GB one), yet the owner of a lovely hot-red machine! Isn’t she beautiful? ๐Ÿ˜€ Aiyo, this retail therapy’s starting to get out of hand… ๐Ÿ™ Still a bit blue, but not as much! Yeehah!

I Wanna! I Wanna!

Unfortunately, you can’t always get what you want. This limited edition Coach beauty costs NT$10,000 — beyond my practical budget. Regardless, it’s been a depressing week so far. Maybe I should pamper myself a bit… ๐Ÿ™‚ Then again, retail therapy don’t need to be so pricey! Sigh, it’s hard being a girl. ๐Ÿ™

White Flag

Today was weird. Every friend that I met today had warned me against SimpleGuy. Not because he ain’t cool, ’cause Top Climber who knows SimpleGuy personally thinks the world of him. “He’s a cool kid, Raven,” Top Climber commented. “But I just don’t see you two together.” Argh! Why’s that? “Well, you’ve always been picky […]

Raven’s Predictions

All of my friends will be voting for a new Taiwan president tomorrow. For fun, let’s make a few predictions. If Raven’s correct, Ma will win. Doesn’t matter if it’s a big or small margin, this shuai ke will finally be elected president. DPP’s Chen Shui Bien would grudgingly turn over the rule to his […]

Easygoing is boring

Iโ€™d like to believe Iโ€™m a pretty easy going person. Most of my friends have no qualms hanging out with me for a longer period of time. I would like to think I can listen well, am open to feedback, I generally keep my word, and extremely generous to those I care about. Geez, even […]

Dear Looney,

Let me tell you what I can’t tell you in person — you are one of the most incredible man I’ve ever met. Incredible not that I want to hump you. Truth be told, the thought had fleetingly crossed my mind now and then, but incredible in such that you’re one of the few stars […]

OMG.

The 85-year old Bear Sterns has fallen! Purchased at a basement price of USD 2 a share, the US investment bank was bought out by JP Morgan for a measely USD 236 million. How can that be, when the assets of Bear Sterns are worth more than that?! Here’s what I gathered from today’s MSN […]
