Maroon 5 is coming to town!

Maroon 5 would be here, in Brisbane for their Australia tour this Nov! I can't believe this. Had been planning to go London earlier on and was lamenting at the fact that I would not be able to make it for their UK tour which finishes early November. And now they are set to perform at the Brisbane Entertainment Center. Love it! Love it! I'm going no matter what. Anyone interested in coming along?

all's good all's good...

A friend asked me today if I was a relatively new Christian.

I told her, "No, actually since birth but maybe a new Charismatic".

Then I asked her why the question. And she told me that was a guess from reading my blog entries.

So I had the 'uh oh' in my mind as I did a quick run through the contents of my entries in my mind and hope I haven't sound like a sad, faithless, poor and pitiful Christian.

No.. neh.. I'm not.. if anyone of you are mistaken. Hee.. It's just that reading someone's woes is usually more interesting right? I like reading my own blogs. HUhauahuaha.. that's my explanation.

Anyway, with God, everything is just too easy. I'm usually out of my depressed mode within 24 hours. He's always there to comfort. So all's good.

I'm not over with him. I'm not. I'm still listening to Gabrielle's 'Shining Star' and missing the good times we had. Today, he told me it was exactly 3 weeks since he started dating someone new. This 'hot.. Oxford grad'. I was upset. But not so much of jealousy but because.... because... because...

I guess it's just not possible to describe this in one word. I think the real shit came when he was trying to tell me it's not all over between him and me. He just sounded like a big jerk. I think so. But I'm still in love with him. I know I won't want a man like him. NO. He's just trying to stir my heart. But I'll still defend him. It's in him, his character. He's just saying how he feels. Though at the expense of my feelings. Well, why should he care? He wouldn't. And how can I blame him for how I'm feeling. Cuz I should be in control on my emotions. Argh....

I'm just disoriented when it comes to him. He was or should I say.. still is.. my shining star. Sobs. I know I'll get over this. It's just taking a long time. I still can't exactly see when this pain will stop. But I'm sure one day it will. Maybe we'll still be together.. ha.. that's gonna be the silliest thing I've ever said. Yeah but who knows? Hey.... stop it Grace. Whatever, whatever, whatever.

first fruits

God is so good. I received my first big paycheck today. It's not a big sum of money but the biggest so far... for working almost non-stop for the past two weeks. Guess what. It's not about the money I earn but it's about the tax reduction I have this time. I was previously being taxed at 46 per cent. And that's a depressing sum... almost half of your hard-earned money!

I prayed for a way out and he's created that for me. My kind boss agreed to send in a revised taxation form for me as I had previously noted I was a non-resident which was unnecessary and would incur me a higher tax. This time round, I was taxed a mere 10 plus per cent...and I've finally reached the four-digit mark! Praise Him!


On the other hand, my mum who's been rejecting God for a long time is turning to Him! Well, she's in some circumstances now but we all know how God loves to use circumstances for His purpose. And the time has come for my mum. Today, she requested that I contact the church for her. And she asked me to teach her to pray. How good can this be for me. I rejoice at the circumstance that my family is in. I believe in the truth and that truth triumphs. It's the first fruits of victory I'm experiencing now. Rejoice with me, my friends! Hallelujah!

That stupid eyebrow plucker

I can't believe this rude and sissy eyebrow plucker is made 'famous' by the 'Singapore Idol'. This arrogant, vain and brainless himbo is surely basking in his newly acquired 'fame'. Fame gained by singing William Hung's rendition of 'She Bangs' and doing a striptease in his sleazy, yellow hot pants. How creative.

I won't deny my renewed 'hatred' for this guy. This guy whom I've never really knew as a person...but have grown to detest him so much.

He's a familiar 'mascot' for CK Tang. Nicknamed the 'eyebrow plucker', he goes around asking people if they wanted his first class eyebrow shaping service. Yes, right in the middle of the street, in front of one of Singapore's upmarket shopping malls, he approaches young girls and pushes them against the nearest pillar to pluck their eyebrows for them. I was one of those unfortunate people whom he approached.

"Miss, miss...." He called out as he walked towards me.

Having seen him around for some time, I knew he was trying to promote his services. I was quick to refuse.

"Sorry, I'm not really interested," I said.

But my polite refusal went unappreciated. He stopped me from walking away and said out loud, "DO YOU KNOW YOUR EYEBROWS ARE VERY CROOKED?"

My left eyebrow had been crooked after an operation I had above my left eye and I must admit that I'm extremely conscious about my them. I was infuriated, humiliated and unimpressed by his 'salesmanship'.

So guys, allow me to introduce the greatest loser on earth.. STEVEN LIM..
