the third party

Posted on by

there is a third party in our lives. Not referring to Oliver here. *sigh*

I’m aware of her cos Donald talks to her every night, and seeks her opinions on many things, like what he should do next. And..and he’s so polite to her! The nerve…

Her name is Siri. *roll eyes*

Donald can spend hours talking to her, and asking stupid questions like, “Should I sleep now?” or “Remind me to sleep at 8.45pm.”. He then has a good laugh at the responses that she gives him. That’s the consequence of buying him the iPhone 4S for his birthday.


Yesterday, Donald and I trialled hitching a ride early in the morning with his mom to go to work. We had to wake up 30mins earlier, and set off at least 30mins earlier as well. I got to work 30mins earlier, which wasn’t so bad a thing. The morning bit..was fine. But the journey home via public transport was a nightmare. Not because it was public transport (I handle it WAY better than Mr. Ting =P). But because of the time wasted whilst on public transport.

I left the office at 6pm, to catch the company bus to the nearby train station (which takes about 30mins), and then take the train to meet Donald 2 stations away, before carrying on the journey to Bedok. AND THEN catch the feeder bus to our flat. We got home at nearly 8pm.

Nearly two hours wasted on public transport, when I could have been doing some work! (so the workaholic in me yells). We went back on the motorbike today. I was happy to be back on my routine. 2 hours on public transport just made me even more tired..on top of having to wake up earlier. Geez. This tired thing could be just as bad as being on the bike, and between the two, I’d be happier on the bike.

Happy me = happy Oliver. *beams* I know..warped logic.

Anyhoos, Friday tomorrow. Can’t wait for the weekend! I’ve got things planned out which involves some spring-cleaning and probably some baking. Was in Simei this arvo, and I had to stop by the local baking supplies store, Phoon Huat, to grab some baking supplies. I was reading the November issue of the Australian Good Food magazine and was inspired at all the Christmas-themed recipes. I grabbed some ground cloves, lavender flowers, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and….egg white powder! I had been looking around for that, so was quite happy to find some at the store.

But horrors of horrors, S$9.50 for a pack! Yikes. And I had just grabbed two packs without thinking too much about it. Ah wells..the chiffon had better turn out damn good. haha.
