Beach Bunny

by mott on January 30, 2016

You know.. I really love the beach. That said, it has to be a calm type of beach. No rip tides, no surf, no sharks, no jellyfish, no anything predatory. Yes, I do love the beach. I guess, the only thing I don’t like about the beach is the sun. Ha ha… Imagine, going to the beach and no sun..where is the joy, right?

Well.. I cover up a fair bit when I’m at the beach..not quite head to toe, but I try to cover as much as I can, and I stay under the shade alot. It’s interesting.. coz everyone around me, is minimalist. Ha ha ha… Not me.

Anyway… I love the beach, for its sand. The exfoliating properties. If I could afford it, my second home would be at the beach. My summers would be just hanging out on the deck, read.. ahhhh… bliss.

Radio or app music?

by mott on January 28, 2016

Nowadays.. we are truly spoilt for choice. Way back then, we didn’t have the luxury of listening to music we liked so readily. We would have to wait till the radio played it, or we had to fork out money to buy the cassette. And, plus, if you kept rewinding or fast forwarding the tape.. it usually goes loose. And then…. it just doesn’t work the same anymore.

Anyway, my aunt was listening to the radio and I asked her to consider getting the music apps. That way, you get to choose the genre, and pick out artists and tracks that you like, and while there are ads, there isn’t an annoying DJ or two. So.. it’s quite interesting how we are opened up to more choices now, that are ‘free’. Hee hee

Online shopping

January 26, 2016

Recently we had the boxing day sale. If you’ve ever been to the Melbourne Boxing Day sale, you’d know it is madness. Beyond madness. People waking up early on boxing day, and getting to the malls, and then spending the whole day there, just shopping and lining up to pay. Mind you, the lines to [...]

Book review : The Garden of Evening Mists

January 25, 2016

By Tan Twan Eng of the one-worded reviews printed on the book cover said, “Haunting”. I should have taken that into note. Definitely haunting, as I felt deluded of a story! Perhaps I have had no time to sit down and properly read fiction, taking time to read and understand the story. Dashing through [...]

Can’t fight the bad smell

January 24, 2016

There was a bad smell dogging me for days. I caught a whiff of it, about 6 days ago… it smelt bad. Think smelly socks. And then think belacan. While it is being fermented. It was terrible. I had to track it down. Despite my senses being tortured, I finally located the source of smell. [...]

I caught this really short movie online, “Removed”, about a young girl and her brother taken away by the authorities, because of unstable conditions in her home. She is then sent to foster homes, and the striking thing is that she carries around her belongings in a black trash bag. I’ve seen it happen in [...]

Your Hair Shapes Your Personality According to the Chinese

January 12, 2016

Well, wasn’t there a time when you were growing up, some Aunty would accost your head, and just dig in looking for double swirls or looking at the texture of your hair, and then say with full confidence, “Ahhhh… You are a very stubborn child!” I hated that so much, especially since I had a [...]

Rage quit

January 11, 2016

My boys taught me this new term the other day. This term would have been very useful to me when I was younger. I did a lot of it because I had a brother who won at everything! So, mostly I would suddenly quit half way, so that I wouldn’t be considered the LOSER! Well… [...]

Volunteer work

January 10, 2016

If you’ve done volunteering work, you would realise that there is always something that ignites a passion inside that you want to continue to do this professionally. It’s a roundabout way of doing things, but interestingly, if you can withstand doing unpaid work for something you are passionate about, it makes sense doesn’t it? One [...]
