I've decided to set up a new blog at www.ajollyaffair.wordpress.com Right now, they do not permit tag boards at wordpress, so do leave me comments okie? I won't shut down this site, so you can still come to the tagboard here, but my new entries will be over there.
The reason why I'm changing is because blogspot is not accessible for those in China so friends/fans over there have trouble reading my entries. :(
Sesame Street was pretty much part of my childhood. These were my favourite characters! Don't the songs just make you happy? *giggles*

"Like Father Like Daughter" is coming to an end soon and I'm so glad most of you enjoyed watching it. It's very heart warming to know that we've managed to entertain all of you for the past month. :) Thank you so much for supporting the show!! Thought I'd pull out some of the pictures taken during production couple of months back for reminiscence sake.
Anya Hindmarch launched her own environmental friendly shopping bag "I'm Not A Plastic Bag" which got snapped up the moment it was launched. People didn't mind being put on waiting list or paying above the market price just to get their hands on this bag. It is heart-warming to know so many people are supportive of this cause, but I can't help but wonder if fashion pursuit is part of the reason for this enthusiasm.
Hmm, that spun off an idea! What if there was a "Design Your Own Bag" contest? Every participant has a plain white cotton bag where they can exercise their creativity, and the winning entries will be displayed at this "Save The Earth" roadshow (if there is going to be one). Otherwise, they can tie in with magazines to raise awareness too. Maybe put them up for exhibition, or auction or as contest prizes? And if the designs are not too difficult to replicate, perhaps it can even go into mass production.
I've seen t-shirts designed by famous people, canvas shoes painted by tertiary students, why not environmentally friendly bags too? Maybe if using these bags actually become fashionable, people might be more willing to carry them around.
Just writing to update all my dear fans about the "hey hey, yah yah" song a lot of you are asking about on the tag board. I asked the sound engineer and he said it is made up of of a few songs, created specially for this show, so it will not be available anywhere else except the sound effects library at MediaCorp.
Hee hee, suspense over. Can sleep better? :)
I think I'm going to fall sick. Sigh, I can feel it in the back of my throat. Tomorrow is an ULTRA long day and I'm so in need of sleep. Will update again soon.
We were filming one short scene at Terminal 2 yesterday and I come to appreciate how bright and clean and orderly our airport is.
Whenever I travel, I realise there is so much to do inside the departure hall, my only gripe is not having enough time to do so before the plane takes off. Not that I've been anywhere recently, and neither do I have the impulse to travel at the moment.
As much as we've got a beautiful airport, it's a place I don't always feel very good about. Whether I'm there to travel, to send someone off or to pick someone home, the emotional turbulence I have to go through each time doesn't make me like being there.
I'm the sort of the person who wants to travel, but when I know I'm going to be leaving home, I start to lose all excitement. That is not to say I don't enjoy my trips, but I guess maybe our airport is too homely, it makes leaving difficult.
If I'm there to send someone off, needless to say, this person means a lot to me. And usually it also signifies absence for an extended period of time. Parting is painful and on days like that, the airport always seems colder than usual.
When someone is coming back, the wait at the arrival hall always makes me dizzy with anticipation. I'm happy the person is coming back, yet sometimes the dynamics are a little awkward, because it's been too long since we last met.
So you see, while I am proud of our airport, its facilities and infrastructure, it is also a place that stirs up a concoction of feelings I don't derive anywhere else.
Nat actually said this picture is typical of post-marriage syndrome. Haha!
Which brings me to share, the other day, someone told me she ran away before she got married. I didn't used to understand why, because I've always wanted to get married at 24, and have babies before I turn 28, so that by the time my kid is 20, I'm only 48. Plenty of energy left to sit back， relax and enjoy old age. But these days, I realised that somehow getting married loses that wholesome appeal once you pass a certain age and that it can be quite nerve-wrecking to bind yourself to someone for the rest of your life.
My ex-college school mate got married on July 7th and I was truly happy for her. But before all the congratulatory hugs, I asked her how did she know for sure? Suddenly, getting married at 24 seemed too early. She shared that when they've come full circle, ultimately the security and comfort from someone you have been with long enough is good enough reason.
I guess it's nice to know there's someone who'd always be there for you "to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, to love and to cherish 'till death do [them] part".
Always good for a laugh, game for food and have an absolute weakness for all things furry and cute.
