As usual, I’m shopping online. Just window-shopping though for my big love.


I’m eye-ing a TODS one next.

I change my mind

Filed under: rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 1:32 pm

Everyone changes right?
After 1 year, 1 month, 1 week, 1 day, 1 min, 1 sec.

Okay, I’m being melodramatic again, as usual.

But hey, I remember all the lists I’ve done on this blog and I look back
and I think to myself  – why on earth did I ever say that?
Or think that? Or believe that? Or say/write that?

I think I was stupid. Foolish. Immature. Naive.

Am I really that much smarter now?
Well, I hope so.

But this blog is a wonderful place.
Because I can look back and see how much I’ve progressed.

I wish to be a wiser person, after all.

Anyway, here goes.. my love for making lists is coming back to haunt me again (now that is one thing that hasn’t changed!)

10 things I’d love to do/have before I die:

1. Go on a luxury cruise
2. Get married
3. Buy a house/apartment 
4. Learn how to drive
5. Play the piano again
6. Read the bible from cover to cover
7. Visit Japan
8. Own a mac computer
9. Receive a tiffany’s ring
10. Raise a Yorkie puppy

That’s all.

It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

Filed under: personal, rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 3:31 pm

Little Ms Perfect has been dead busy with life.
I don’t even have time to do cool stuff anymore.

I’ve left the country.
Left my beloved friends, family, bestie, boyfriend.

Now I’m older.
With a real job.
Paying bills.
Making plans.
And also, slightly more lady-like.


Anyways, we need a new theme, love.

What say you? 

10 things to do before I die?


Speaking of which, I should reply bestie’s previous post – well, I don’t have 10 things; but 5 will do for now! (:

10 significant things that happened in 2009

1. I graduated from university.
2. I moved out of home.
3. I travelled alone.
4. I found a banking job.
5. I didn’t cry in 6 months.

Tell Me: Do you stereotype people?

Filed under: personal, rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 10:25 am

Okay, so it’s been a while since either of us has bothered to blog on here. But I won’t tell you why because it’s none of your business, really.

ha ha, just jokes.

Well, the truth is.. Bestie has been to busy with uni work and as for me, well, I’m moving (sort of). Moving countries, that is. Going away in search of greener pastures on the other side of the fence, type thing. I’ll talk more about it some other time though because today, I want to fulfil my side of the bargain since it’s my turn to come up with a fresh new topic to blog about this time around!

Today, I want to talk about the types of people I dislike!
I stereotype people alot. Yes! I’m one of those evil people who classify people into categories. I have favourites and the opposite of favourites. I don’t think I should use the word “hate” because it may be a tad too strong.

Anyway, enough of my babbling.. pop goes the weasel:

1/ Rude people – I absolutely DETEST (okay, that’s a strong word) people who are rude and obnoxious to strangers on the street. If you don’t know the person, at least pretend to be civil, even if you don’t mean it. Is that so hard to do? Honestly? A simple thank-you, sorry, excuse me, please. It doesn’t even take much effort and breath to cough out these simple words. You could even bow if you didn’t want to say anything. Just show a bit of respect and some nice manners.. that’s all I’m asking for, really.

2/ Stupid people – People should read more to make themselves smarter. Books and magazines are a good start. Watch more TV. Surf the net. Talk to people around you. It’s so easy to gain knowledge these days. Even if it’s useless knowledge. It’s better than being stupid!

3/ Arrogant people – I don’t think anyone likes them anyway so I’m not going to waste my time explaining why I don’t like such people.

4/ Stingy people – YUCK YUCK YUCK! Because I’m a gift-giving and gift-receiving type of person.. I find myself struggling to understand such people. But I have to also admit that I do not want to understand them either. I just don’t get it. There are more important things in life than money.

5/ Petty people – Let it go, people! You’re not only making yourself miserable but the people around you too. Can’t you see that you’re a pain to be around with? No one wants to be friends with you or even associate with you because you’re so sensitive and easily offended. It’s tiring having to be on the guard on the time and watching what we say and do.. just in case we hurt your feelings. Ugh! I find such people incredibly frustrating to be around with.

6/ Dirty people – I don’t like people with bad personal hygiene. I can deal with a messy.. but not someone who hasn’t showered in like a week and sprays a whole bottle of cologne/perfume on himself/herself to cover up the bad bad B.O. These include people who sleep around too. Not that they are similar or related to those with bad hygiene. But I think people who sleep around lots or have multiple sex partners are sort of dirty too.. like contaminated. It’s a bit mean, I know. But that’s just my own personal opinion.

7/ Lazy people – Sigh.

8/ Selfish people – People who expect you to help them all the time and when you do, they are either ungrateful or don’t even bother to show any form of appreciation afterward.

9/ Racist people – Triple GRRR! Please don’t make me explain this. Just accept it.

10/ Bimbos (both male and female versions) – Why? They just piss me off. Superficial coconut-headed idiots!

And this marks the end of my very cruel list.

Tell Me: How many regrets do you have in your life?

Filed under: rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 2:02 am

BFF and I were talking the other day about our blog and how inactive and boringly empty it’s become. 
So she came up with another topic to blog about – 6 regrets! 

I’d be lying if I said I have no regrets.. but at the same time, I don’t really have that many regrets, particularly not big big major major ones because I’m pretty happy and content with myself and my life at the moment. 

But anyway, here goes (in no particular order): 
1.  insisting on having that stupid Nokia 6288, which was a super crap and problem mobile phone – worst ever!
2.  not taking better care of my skin when I was in my pre-teens 
3.  sinking into mild depression and blaming God for my problems when I was 14-18
4.  buying too many useless bags during my 07/08 summer trip – I love bags but I really don’t need that many!
5.  saying too many uncalled for things in a fit of anger at the worst times (still happens, unfortunately)
6.   not caring enough about the people around me (I’m working on this at the mo!) 

Alright, so now.. it’s BFF’s turn! Ha Da! (:

The Mr Perfect List

Filed under: personal — Tags: — almostladies @ 10:24 am

So now that I’m well into my 20s.. or rather, just entered my 20s.. I find myself creating yet another mental list of my ideal husband. It used to be called the boyfriend list. That was the time when my head couldn’t get past the dating phase. Now it’s gone over and beyond that. I’m actually exploring the whole concept of marriage. The whole “till death do us part” deal. I want to get married and have a husband that I can love and be loved by. It’s not romantic. It’s just a desire. I like that idea of having someone other than myself to think about and fuss about.

Anyway, here goes:

1. Taller than me
2. Older than me
3. Stronger than me (emotionally + physically)
4. Street smart
5. Rich
6. Happy
7. Easygoing
8. Simple
9. Polite
10. Generous
11. Reliable
12. Trustworthy
13. Honest
14. Good natured
15. Considerate
16. Funny
17. Christian
18. Proactive
19. Thinks things through
20. Plans for the future
21. Loves ME!

Am I asking for the moon, or what? (:

Tell Me: Does anyone here love food reviews like I do?

Filed under: Food — Tags: — almostladies @ 8:54 am

Okay peeps! I’m back from a long long long hiatus.

To make up for all the lost time..

I’m going to do my catch-up version of a favourite food review. Simply because I a huge aversion towards most food, SO, if I do find/have something that I enjoy consuming.. well, I think it’s worth blogging about.

FWAH! I’m melodramatic today.

ANYWAY! Let’s cut to the chase.

I now present to you: My #1 snack of all time!

The Kit Kat.
Kit Kat
I adore Kit Kat. I think it’s one of the most intelligent and note-worthy inventions of all time. Why didn’t they win a Nobel Prize for this? It’s so yummy and yet so affordable. A piece of chocolate, well, half of which isn’t really chocolate. But that’s the beauty of it! A humble, and oh so simple snack. With lovely red and eye-catching packaging too!

And it’s one of those snacks that tries to do everything. Look at the dozens of flavours (e.g. green tea, peanut butter, strawberry) it’s tried to form a partnership with. Some not-so-successful combinations, while some of them are just brilliantly fantastic! You have to give it some credit for trying to conqueor the world.

10/10 jellybeans!

Tell Me: What is your ideal sort of holiday?

Filed under: holiday — Tags: — almostladies @ 4:04 am

There are only two types of holidays that I love and enjoy.

1.  The Tropics

It has to be in a 5 star resort, situated near a white sandy beach with crystal clear water. I think I’m a sucker for luxury. I have to be spoilt rotten.. with lots of food, drink and sunbathing. Loose and colourful beach clothes/swimwear. Tens of hours of sleep. Unlimited room service. And a lovely sunset. I think the best part about holidays like this is that it actually gives you the chance to do serious relaxation. Like snorkeling in the sea with the fish or reading a book by the beach.

2. The Urban City

Shopping in a urban setting, particularly in one of the major Asian cities, is one of the best holidays any girl could ever dream of. Especially me! The variety of bags, shoes and dresses.. the big brands, the cheapie bargains. It’s just one of those things that makes me go crazy with joy. The atmosphere and food. The hotels and taxis. The late nights and busy malls. The people around me rushing about. The city, full of life and bustling with activity. Well of course, I’d need good company and a couple of credit cards on a holiday such as this one.

Tell Me: How do you stay in touch with the rest of the world?

Filed under: rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 1:48 pm

For me, it’s my mobile phone. I absolutely cannot live without my mobile phone. It’s the fastest and most convienient way of keeping in touch and staying in contact with friends and family. So, when I found out that I’d used up all my texts for the month.. AGAIN..

I freaked out.

How can this be happening to me?!

Now I have no choice but to use Facebook and Gmail for the next 3 days.

Boo hoo! ):

Tell Me: Have you ever had days like this?

Filed under: rants & raves — Tags: — almostladies @ 10:08 am

A mad and sad day.

It’s days like these.. which tempt you into wallowing in self-pity.

A total waste of a day.
