The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there,
Had worn them really about the same

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.

– The Road Not Taken, Robert Frost (1874–1963)

Your Brain is 80% Female, 20% Male

Your brain leans female

You think with your heart, not your head

Sweet and considerate, you are a giver

But you're tough enough not to let anyone take advantage of you!

Lipstick and Personality
Feeling rather bored so I went to google for lipstick personalities. Anyway, all my lipsticks look different but I decided to zoom in on my favourite lipstick from Anna Sui. It says something like this:

If your lipstick has a rounded shape with a pointed tip

You are attractive.
You devote yourself to your family.
You are a woman of your word.
You are a leader.
You are stay-at-home.
You are prone to exaggerate.
You are opinionated.
You are sociable.

Rather true. I didn't know a lipstick can say so much about a person. Probably that's why I love makeup :)

As usual, I had to pick my brother up from his workplace at 5.30pm. As I stopped by the roadside, I noticed a little garden on the kerb. Amidst an industry park in Ubi, this little garden seemed very much out-of-place but at the same time eye-catching and special. If not for the fact that I have to pick me brother up from work everyday, I wouldn't have noticed this little nook that is bursting with vibrancy and life.
Somehow I can't help but notice that this garden was well-maintained and that someone was tending to the plants in the small space. While I felt slightly down today due to work, the sight of the cheery yellow sunflowers almost immediately brightened up my tired day. Somehow God's hand is amazing. For once, I thanked God for flowers.
Work has been getting to me these days. Somehow I feel drained mentally and emotional everyday. My angels are rather challenging this year. While I am a person who reasons issues out with them, something tells me I am not getting through to them. Nevertheless I believe I will still press on, if I can. It is said that 'Faith can move mountains' and I will continue to have faith in these 38 unique individuals.
Cheer up, Nana. :)

The Best Time of the Year

I don't know about you but to me, Christmas is definitely the best time of the year. Beyond all the feasting and giving, there of course lies a greater meaning to the holiday itself. Well, if you are not sure what it is, you can ask me about it when you see me next time.

Anyway, I attended a total of 4 gatherings for Xmas this year, some better than the others. There's a 5th one coming up and it's not exactly a Xmas party but I get to meet my JC friends like once in a blue moon and it falls within the 12 days of Christmas so it's counted.
Hahaha... this is my blog so what I say counts. *winks*
Anyway, of all the gatherings, the meetup with my secondary school girlfriends today is something I will remember for a long time to come. Having known each other for more than a decade, my friends and I had a blast trying to overcome obstacles for Wii (Ramon Rabbid *think it's spelt this way), capture candid shapshots with Y's lomography camera, whip up our own sumptuous Christmas dinner and chilling out in the living room with a hot cup of coffee from A's new expresso machine. It was all in the name of fun. In fact, the conversation we had was hardly intellectual but highly entertaining for we shifted from topic to topic in a rather random manner.

For dinner, we had:
1) A's Lobster Bisque Soup

2) Y's Smoked Salmon Salad with Italian Dressing

3) Crackers and Cheese

4) Cocktail Sausages

5) X's Aglio Olio with Prawns and Scallops

(Pic from Y's Canon SLR)

6) T's French Fries

These were cleaned out rather nicely. I guess the fact that everyone chipped in (except me) to cook the food made the food taste better.

For dessert, we had

1) H's Choc.a.bloc's decadent chocolate cake

2) My carrot cake with cheese frosting (Not the black/white kind sold in the marketplace)

3) YY's melt-in-the-mouth Tiramisu which was absolutely to-die-for.

Imagine having 3 whole cakes all to ourselves! Of course, we didn't manage to finish them so some brought them back.
Accompanying all these, we had a mixture of dessert wine, lychee martini cum pina colada drink, coffee and even Chinese tea.

Hope these girlfriends will be around the rest of my life. They are such wonderful people and I don't know what to do without them.
Anyway, goodbye Christmas 2008, Hello New Year 2009!

Before I end, the presents my friends blessed me with today, knowing I'm a product freak.
Here goes...

A very blessed Nana Ho signing off ;)

Recession is here
The Golden Ticket

Recession is here so I'm stocking up my shampoo, conditioner, hair masks, curl hair definer. 2 years' worth of hair product.
Keep psychoing myself...
I'm spending to stimulate the economy.
I'm spending to stimulate the economy.
I'm spending to stimulate the economy.
The problem is, I'm going to help out the economy again at the Kose 70% sales tomorrow. And maybe at Loreal Expo sale next week. Can someone stimulate my bank account please?

Singapore's Weird Obsession
After the short hiatus, I'm back again to blog, only because it's the holidays and I now have more time on my hands.

Anyway, my entry is as the title read: Singapore's weird obsession with ...drum rolls...


Yes. You read it correctly. R-U-B-B-E-R.

Not to worry it's a perfectly teenage-safe entry. The rubber I am referring to is of course this.

Strangely, while crocs are never the best-looking shoes around, they can definitely be crowned the most comfortable. The way the rubber envelops the feet, the way the shoes are designed to mould to the wearer's feet. the way the soles have a firm grip on slippery surfaces is astonishing.

In fact, I bought my first pair of crocs only 3 weeks ago at a recent Metro 20% sale and I'm now a crocs-convert.

Check out the cutesy-looking cotton candy Malindi I bought.

I heard you gushing and going awwww in the background. Aren't they sweet? Well, they have survived many shopping marathons and a trek up the Southern Ridges so they are also shoes with substance.

Well, what does my love have to do with Singapore anyway? Check this out!

As with many other Singaporeans, I made my way to Singapore Expo last Saturday, having heard that it was the first ever crocs sale. Thinking that it would be less crowded in the late afternoon, we (Mum and I) made our way to Hall 4A.

The queue we saw was enough to put us off. It snaked from Hall 4A all the way to Hall 3 and within. Yet everyone was patient enough to wait in line. Singporeans do love to queue!

The crowd in front of me.

The over-enthusiastic crowd

The ridiculous line of people

I waited for about 1 hour before we entered Hall 4A. The hall itself was a madhouse, with people grabbing whatever shoes they can lay their hands on and shouting out sizes they wanted. It was an ugly sight but I soon resorted to behaving like them. Haha.

Impatient shoppers

The queue to pay

Mom and I worked like a team. She hovered like a vulture at a corner, watching the shoes I painstakingly grabbed from the counters. Sizes and colours were limited but no one seemed to care as the shoes were almost at 60% off. We grabbed a total of 11 pairs but chose to buy only 6 pairs at the end. Must start to save now. Recession is here.

Anyway, payment was another round of queuing. We spent another 3 hours queuing to pay for the 6 pairs of crocs.

All in all, our loot.
