bah, been so utterly busy (and a little lazy) that I haven’t been writing much. And..to think we renewed the domain name and domain mapping for another year! haha. =p Donald’s fairly insistent on it. But he should write too lah…meh.

Anyhoos, today’s marks our 5th year 3rd month of dating anniversary. which is also our 9th month together as being married (according to the SG wedding). =D awww.

egg container

had bought a individual egg container on our honeymoon last year on a sly. the purpose was to write daily messages into the egg for each other to read. as you can see from my “I want to..” series (which I should really complete!!), obviously it didn’t quite happen. but I’d write on special occasions, like today. haha.

the last time anything was written inside was when Donald left Perth to go back and start work, and I was bawling my eyes out writing a note. and then I chucked it into his luggage so that it would be a surprise for him. haha. like siva sez, “girls are good at these stuff.” I should be charging him for all the stuff that I’ve thought up for him man!! from the mother’s day pressie, to an anniversary pressie for his wife, which was quite a joke, and we couldn’t stop giggling when we were prepping it. *solemn* we were being very mischievous at work. hahahah.

Donald’s just grabbed it and gone into hiding to read the notes. *roll eyes*

So, work’s been insane. I meant to cook this week for dinner, but I was so busy that I was coming home late every night, well, last evening being the exception. we still went out to eat tho..haha. clocking up a fair bit of OT, so it’s all good! Something extra at the end of the month. And it’s also been good that I’ve been busy. It just means that I don’t get to snack as often as I want. My table’s horrendously filled with junk food and files. And when Azi is stressed, she’ll call out for the contained that’s filled with chips, which I’ll obligingly handover. I joked that we should have weighed ourselves in June, and then weigh ourselves again in Dec, just to see how much weight we’d have put on. Really bad for us to be junk food neighbours. hahah.

Work’s been insane, but awesome. And hilarious. I was speaking with a manager, and giving him some information about an event he had to attend. He mistook it and thought I was sending him for a course, and told me that he had already completed university. It was the way he said it, plus I was already gonna laugh about a pun that I had intended to say, on top of him mistaking my intention. I ended up laughing, and I couldn’t stop. I had to tell him that I’d call him back.

And I laughed and laughed, with my boss and Azi looking weirdly at me. Well, they got why I was laughing so hard when I told them what happened. Thank goodness he wasn’t at his table when I had to call back, cos I wasn’t ready. I was still smiling when the phone was ringing. So pai seh!!

I’m glad work’s mostly filled with laughter. Really makes the day get by easier. *grin*

So, after a crazy weekend the week before last, where we bought a bed, a System 4 airconditioning unit, and a sofa for our new place, the following week was quiet. Donald joined me and the ladies of the Chew family (maternal side) for an afternoon of mahjong and dinner out, cos my uncle and aunt weren’t home, and Grandma was mostly left alone. Sunday was spent going around Woodlands checking out dining tables. And I found my perfect dining table within the right price range!!

And of course, Donald found his perfect dining table that is out of the price range. -_-” why my husband like that one huh??

It’s tiring to keep going around and checking out designs and going to more retail shops. but the varieties out there really amazes me. Especially the fugly ones. Madness lah! Thing about me is that once I see one that I really like..we don’t really have to see any others. haha. Call me closed minded, but I already have an image of what the furniture should look like. =P

After that, we went on a date at Holland Village for dinner and dessert. Donald had said that on the way to dessert, he’ll bring me to my favourite place. In my mind I was like, ‘Coffee Club for ice earled vanilla??’ hahaha. But nooo..it was actually better. A brightly lit shop that sold kitchen ware. *swoooon* A man after my heart =P I spent about 30 mins in there, and saw that they had the Australia Good Food magazine there as well. So yay! =P

Well, new weekend, and we’re off to check out more suppliers for our home. It’s really coming together!! Damn excited.
