Lost and Naked in the City Again

Okay, so I’m not really lost and naked. I am in the city, though!
Safe and sound in Singapore doesn’t sound nearly as scintillating. I’m frantically packing for Hong Kong (and obviously blasting the tunes. Naked in the City is one helluva good packing song.)
Holy crap. I can’t believe I am leaving Singapore […]

The Wrong Kind of Cosmo Girl

I got a really awful hair cut yesterday because the stylist just wouldn’t listen to me. He had a creative vision that I was supposed to trust. I kept protesting, “Um…the layers are getting too short. Can we keep them long?”
At that point, I should have just left; but I stayed. I’m weak like […]

Falalalala la la la la

I have been reunited with my Nalgene. I’ll finally get some sleep tonight.
Since I was in a public area (*cough* the communal bathroom in my residence), I was relatively subdued when I told Dave this thrilling piece of news. He actually said, “Whoa. You just said that so calmly…as if it weren’t […]

Learning to Let Go

I lost my beloved purple Nalgene yesterday. She was the newest of my collection; but she was my definite favourite. And the only one here with me! The only one I trusted to make the journey across the world. She even carried Canadian water that I sipped during the long plane ride.
Oh my poor […]

And Then and Then and Then…

So let’s see if I can remember everything that I want to preserve. This one is going to be long, so only open up if you’re interested in one of those kiddie “And then we did this and then we did that and then and then and then…”-stories about my Thursday and Friday. […]

Holy Japanophile, Batman.

Nigiri sushi dinner set that included so many delicious and delicate extras like a few perfect slabs of maguro sashimi.
One single shiso leaf.
Freeflow green tea.
A few bites of macha tiramisu at TCC.
Cheap and chic (non-Moschino) purchases from Orchard St. outdoor kiosks that could only be described as “cho kawaii!”
The new Namie Amuro album* and a […]

Silver Linings?

I was all prepped to write something positive. You know, point to things like the Sony Bravia commercial that makes me smile and open my heart just a smidgen to Satan’s spawn.
I was going to gush about my hilarious parents who called me this morning and had me bust my guts laughing. Even though […]

No Shingles This Time ‘Round

I am struggling to figure out what to write for this essay. I have to finish it by Tuesday night if I want some breathing room in Taipei, so I’ve got to focus my thoughts a bit better. Sigh. It’ll work out. It always does. At least that is what I am telling myself these […]

Pass In Time

I’m feeling snarky today. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s the fact that there are lots of sucky people in this world and I hate them. Maybe.
Let’s see. Well, there’s the girl who stole and presumably consumed my dragonfruit and yogurt. Maybe she’s the same girl who always leaves the fridge door […]

Another Kind of Narc

My eyes! My eyes! Okay, it’s not that dramatic. My eyes just don’t want to stay open. I feel like the narcoleptic Argentinian in Moulin Rouge. You so know that I’m playing “Come What May” and singing along to both Satine and Christian’s parts even though we’re well into “quiet time” here at the Peej. […]
