当他的女儿跟我说他父亲的过去，我又忍不住哭了。不过哭了之后，在伤心的当儿，我也领悟了不少，感觉自己好像有进入了人生的另一个阶段。他的女婿说：“She blessed Mical and got blessed in return." 我想大概是这样吧。因为每当我想起他，心里就有很温暖的感觉，就好像那天他在病床上抚摸着我的头的那种体会。
I really appreciate the kind words from everyone to help me pull through this period. I will still be sad, but it's a positive sort of sadness. Because I know he is now free from sickness and pain. Don't worry dearies, I'm fine, because I know I am blessed.
Though our meeting was brief, you have found a special place in my heart. For you have taught me how to appreciate, how to love, and how to live. From the bottom of my heart -- Thank you Mical. I will miss you.

Hello! I'm so sorry for missing in action! Didn't mean to leave you all in the lurch. :( We've been filming in the studio all week, and I really haven't found time to rest well, eat well and sleep well. Finally managed to get a day off today and just had a nice milky shower, so yummy!
And oh! I've got presents from Hong Kong! From a beloved friend! Thank you, muaks!
Delicious! Though I still like the ones I bake myself :p Heehee!

The beginning of this week week was fraught with a lot of emotional unpleasantries, which eased out as the week wore on. I don't lament that these occurrences take place because more often than not, they unlock complex emotions within me that I never knew existed. And this, I reckon, is particularly helpful when I have to portray the emotions of the characters I play.
Post turbulence was the period I gave myself to reflect on certain random ideas. I came to realise that I've been so caught up with the pace of life and the responsibilities thrust upon me that it sometimes stresses me out unnecessarily. I form higher expectations of myself, sometimes based on what others want, all in the attempt to play the perfect role at home, at work and in my social circle.
Truth is, I'll never be.
Not that I've given up trying to be a better person, but first I got to get the direction right. I haven't got the perfect answer, but there has always been a beacon beckoning me, only I might have lost sight of it occasionally. I believe it's time to abandon my course and steer towards the unwavering light.
I am truly grateful that I am blessed to have people who love me enough to bother.

For those who missed my previous entries, you might want to check the June/July archives for some behind the scenes pictures and videos. Stay tuned!
Have faith, even in the most dire situations. May all global victims of recent natural and economic disasters find the strength to pull through the toughest times.

I bet this is such a common question it's almost boring. Haha, to me, it doesn't really matter, because if it's empty here, it's full somewhere. Like in my tummy.
This was a very yummy glass of freshly squeezed orange juice from Vil'age at Heeren. We were filming there the other day and the manager was so obliging with the food and beverages (although eventually we didn't order any food because it wasn't necessary for the scene). He's such a nice man!
While waiting for my car to be serviced yesterday, I went for a little test drive of the new Suzuki Grand Vitara 2W Drive. Love the big, spacious interior! I've always liked SUVs actually, and I almost bought the 4W Drive (that was before the 2W Drive came out) when I was contemplating between that and my current one, which was cheaper. In the end I chose the cheaper one because I was persuaded by a dear friend that by the time I pay up the bank loan for the Grand Vitara, I would have actually paid more than $100K for a vehicle. Imagine how much I can save every month if I chose the cheaper option? So after doing a bit of calculation, I decided to rein in my desires and be economical instead.
But that doesn't mean I don't drool when I see big cars.
The thing with the one I test drove yesterday is that, it is big and macho, and very comfortable, but it doesn't feel very sturdy. Because it's a big car, and the centre of gravity is higher, so it's much easier for the car to flip too. Dangerous!
That's why I always get torn between SUVs and performance cars. Performance cars on the other hand feel very much stronger and safer, so it's not only a luxury to drive, you feel protected too. Then of course you pay more for all that.
Sigh, I reckon the best option is a performance SUV. Like the Porsche Cayenne, Mercedes GL class or the BMW X5.
I shall dream on lah.

Thanks dearies for your kind and caring words. I'm feeling so much better after medication and rest. I still have no appetite and feeling weak, but at least I'm not running to the toilet anymore. Other than the irritation diarrhoea, dinner last night was fun, because a group of friends and I had quite a wacky time!
The "Culprit" 就是因为这麻辣火锅，让我肚子无法承受。 前几天刚刚看了由古天乐和刘若英主演的《生日快乐》才会想吃。 咳！下次不敢了。
Lending a helping arm... 我调皮的朋友就是爱玩，这只不过是其中一张搞笑的照片。 我们昨晚真的一直捧腹大笑，因为太饱了，所以一笑起来很想吐。
