Apparently ducks don’t go south for the winter …

…went for a walk and came upon a creek with portion of it frozen over.  It's cute with little duck tracks in the snow over the ice. 

So I stayed on the sides and enjoy the ducks feeding in, what I would imagine as really cold water.  They are funny, kicking up their webbed feet and with their bums completely up in the air to search for food in the creek.  Those must be really good feathers.

Survivor Withdrawal and Yul rocks!!!

It's over … Survivor:Cook Islands … it's over and I'm a little bit at a lost of what to read on the net now.  It was a great season and the guy I was rooting for won :)  Very satisfying like a good meal when you're starving.

Honestly, if Ozzy won … I'd be happy too but it was really great to have Yul win.  He truly deserve it, I mean it's very much a social game so the winner had to be more than just a fierce competitor like Ozzy was.  Ozzy was truly one of the most craziest competitor ever, in my opinion he's some mutant … some X-men of sorts 😛

For whatever it's worth, this was one of the best seasons of Survivor and all thanks to Candice for the mutiny that made it all crazy and created the greatest underdog since David – Aitutonga!!!!!

Oh well … till the next thing I get hooked on … I'll be re-reading the survivor news … oh wait, is Grey's Anatomy Season 3 on DVD already?

Winter Wonderland

Went for a walk to enjoy the snow.  I was all bundled up and the only place that was completely naked to the cold was my nose which I felt unthawing (is there such a word?) when we got back into the car.  It's like, you know, that silly game you play as a kid squeezing all the blood out of your hand and feeling it all rush back in … that's how it felt except on my nose 😛 and my cheeks too.

Bbbbrrrr … It was cold but the view was so completely worth it 🙂

Happy Birthday Daddy!!!

Yep yep yep, it's my Daddy's birthday today and … it's also my Zi Pek's birthday too.  Yes, that makes my Dad exactly 2 years younger than my uncle.  How my grandparents did it, I'm not quite sure? 

You know the thing about horoscopes and all, despite being born on the same day, my Dad and my uncle are pretty much chalk and cheese … here's when I err to the side of the Chinese horoscope where my Dad's a Ram and my uncle's a Snake.  They do have similarities though – my Grandma's wonderful smile 🙂

So on my Daddy's birthday, I'd like to toast the last 31 years of my existence (it's afterall my blog :P) which I hope brought my Daddy enough love and laughter to ride through the storms … coz thank you, Daddy for teaching me the beauty of life – the journey may not always be smooth but trust in God and happiness is an option we can choose.  Happy Birthday and your pressies from Singapore are on the way!!!!  Love you much!!!

Happy happy birthday to Zi Pek too!!!  Love and hugs too!!!

Guess what else?  Tomorrow's my baby sister's birthday … errr but she's not a baby anymore :P  And how did my parent pull that off?  Only God knows 😉

keep dancing … Happy Feet

Oooooooohhhhh something about little furry penguins that is so so cute.  I think I can say, I had a good enough time with Happy Feet … except the script was … was … errr … let's just say, it could have been a lot more subtle.  In Jules' exact words "too Jack Neo" but the animation of the penguins are too too cute especially the little baby ones.  I enjoyed the singing too.  And the dancing, just made me feel like dancing too 🙂

My take is that it's a good fun movie to watch on big screen but please please, no kids under the age of 8-10.  There are some serious scenes that were pretty frightening.  Think National Geographic best moments when a seal goes for a penguin.  You get the idea.

Survivor Frenzy

I just finished watching episode 11 of Survivor: Cook Islands.  Can you believe it's the 13th season of Survivor?  I stop watching after season 3 … it was in Africa or something, I can't remember except that it got boring … you know, the same strategies, the same kind of stereotypical cast … so I stopped watching it … that and I moved into my own place without a TV :P  However, with season 13, Mark Burnett decided to divide the tribes by race and that intrigued me… I started reading about it, what happens in each episode … as a social project I thought it was pretty interesting.  After two episodes, they merge them all and it was like a normal survivor and I thought … ok, I'm going to stop watching it. 

Then I was in LA for work and watched the recap episode as well as some pivotal episodes, mainly just the MUTINY one which practically sucked me into this season.  Mostly because of the diverse range of tribe members … many of which were picked off the streets.  Other than that, the producers basically did the usual things to stir up drama.  So I think for the newer seasons, they should really keep up this MO – mix up the cast with people who applied with people who really don't have a clue about the series and in all honesty don't quite care for it but are game to try anything for a million dollars.  Opens the game play to a wide opportunity of new strategies :)  For anyone who's watching it currently watching it on channel 5, don't miss episode 8 … you so won't regret it.  It brings new meaning to the David and Goliath.

Ok, I'll 'fess up here's the reason why I'm into this season too …  cute, smart and check out those abs … I'm a total ab girl and you know, he's really really sweet … or at least the version the producers choose to portray on TV.  Oh well, that's why I love crushes, celebrities or otherwise, they are exactly how you imagine them to be in your head and it never becomes real and have no chance of getting bad :)  I love crushes ;) 

In real life, I'm as lucky as I am in my head … AJM is sweet, funny, smart and best of all, kind :)  So  a girl can sometimes have her cake and eat it too … the thing is though, good things never ever lasts but hey, that's life … up and down and up and down … if not, life would be boring like the rest of the Survivor seasons … I rather take my chances with a little more excitment and great opportunities for the underdog like Suvivor: Cook Islands 🙂

It’s time for a haircut

Wags_Dec2006_03 Wags_Dec2006_02 Wags_Dec2006_01

What choice do you have when you're on chilling in bed, doing window shopping online and a completely adorable puppy looks longingly at you?  Yep, no choices, so I whipped out my camera.

Wags was none to impress.  I honestly think it's not because I was sticking a camera into her face but because she's way overdue for a hair cut … hmmm … would it be fur cut for doggies?  Which ever you know what I mean. 

Meanwhile, she is very cute like a mop of fur scurrying around the house :)  I'll have my fun with the scruffy Wags till my sister takes her for her next grooming and she'll look like this again …
