Caught the cast of Dim Sum Dollies while fashionably yours was there shopping. They spiced up the holiday seasons with their sexy voices. They sang and carck jokes. It was fun watching them while shopping at The Robinsons.
Fashionably yours is spending for a good cause. For every limited edition Serenity set sold, L'oreal Paris will donate a cosmetic item to help support the Singapore Cancer Society's Look Good, Feel Better program. It will enrich the lives of women who have battled cancer with both beauty and serenity through the purchase of this limited edition collectible.
A free pouch that comes with the purchase of the Limited Edition Serenity True Match Two-way Foundation.
Last Friday, went for tea with Lemon-san at Coffee & Toast after we had our meals during lunch time. As usual, we were yakking away happily. Chatted anything under the sun.
Despite my hectic, stressful and busy schedule, I will find time to enjoy and live life to the fullest.
I love drinking beer....It helps me to relax and unwind. I wanna drink my favourite Carlsberg beer but it is out of stock at the supermarket. Ended up drinking Oranjeboom beer now and it is my first time drinking it. Not bad for the cheaper price compared to Carlsberg.....but give me a can of Carlsberg anytime please.

Fashionably yours worked till 2200 hour in the office on a Friday night. I still cannot finish my work, so I brought my work home to do them over the weekends. Phew ! finally I just finished what need to be done. Thank God, I can rest on Sunday, though I burnt my Saturday working. At least I have a sense of accomplishment when getting my tasks completed.
I understand how it feels when you have reports to do and tight dateline. I simply have no mood for other things. Just leave me alone to do my work. The mind will be keep thinking about the reports and works.....that is exactly how my big feel every time. He has so many works to do. Times are bad so cannot employ additional manpower to help him. Next week is gonna be another hectic and stressful week for fashionably yours.
Alrighty, fashionably yours need to have a good rest now, after all my hard work. Now I want a can of beer to relax and unwind myself.

Extract of our interesting conversation:
Me : What do you want for Xmas ? I am going to buy you a present. Let me know.
Big : You can give me Jo Ann wrapped in a ribbon and nothing else ?
Me : I need to get a ribbon to wrap myself
Big : Don't need much ribbon. Just a small piece is ok.
Me : I tied myself in small ribbon and mail to where ?
Big : Special Declivery
My Big has lots of work to do. He still find some time to communicate with me despite his busy schedule. Greatly appreciated.

- Cramp in my stomach
- Loss of Appetite
Still not feeling good this morning and have very bad cramp that I have diffiuclty walking. Thus throw in the towel and decided to visit the company doctor. It is diagnosed that I have gastritis and a senstive stomach which is so acidic inside. I have a history of acid reflux (GERD) too. Luckily this time seems mild. Prescribed with some medications and told to rest at home.
I need to rest and relax and not to stress myself. Guess I have been too stressed up at work the past few weeks. This is the effect of how my body is reacting after the past few stressful weeks. OK, I need to relax myself now. I have been working way too hard in the office, clocking long hours. The doctors also gave me some lozenges since my throat is not that good after speaking so much in the office. I always need to talk alot in my line of work, giving advice and answering queries.
Looking out of my window now, the sky seems to turn dark and very windy. Perhaps God is telling me not to work so hard, take some time out to rest my body system. Yes I will. I will rest today. However, fashionably yours is still clearing office emails and sending emails from home. Seems like I am working from home than resting at home.....urgh ! Too many things to do at work, cannot finish......OMG ! I am sounding like my big..........I am at home but my heart is at work.......I am turning workaholic. I think I cannot survive without technology - Mobile Phone and Internet.
Going for my lunchy, then zzzzzz......while the rest of you are working hard in the office. I really need a good short break now before I go battle again tomorrow at work.
On a side note, I find my big's job is more stressful than mine, and he is handling his stress very well. He never raise his voice at me when he is under stress, always talk so sweet to me. I also never raised my voice at him, except grumbling to him about my job. He did too at times....haha....at least he knows I am his listening ear and I still exist (self consolation - haha). I did complain to him before about his job is keeping him away from me, though I am proud of his career. Now I am accepting it slowly. Guess I grow and learn along the way. I am proud to be the woman behind my high flyer man.

Dropped by Kinokuniya bookstore to buy Simply Her magazine - Dec 2008 issue. It comes with a FREE RED gift box and three beautiful wrappers. The FREE RED gift box is exclusively at Kinokuniya only.
I also dropped by Borders on my way home. Well, picked up 4 books.....don't know why fashionably yours love buying books nowadays. Maybe it is my reading season.

Happy people spend a lot of time socialising, going to church and reading newspaper, but they do not spend a lot of time watching televison, a new study has found.
Dr John Robinson, co-author of the study said that "TV was the one activity that showed a negative relationship. Unhappy people did it more, and happy people did it less."
University of Maryland analysed 34 years of data collated from more than 45,000 participants and found that watching TV might make you feel good in the short term, but is more likely to lead to overall unhappiness.
Television viewing is a pleasurable enough activity with no lasting benefit, and it pushes aside time spent in other activities - one that might be less immediately pleasurable, but that would provide long-term benefits in one's condition. In other words, TV does cause people to be less happy.

Fashionably yours seldom watch TV. I spent most of my time socialising at private events as a socialite, since I often get invited to many private parties. Sometimes I have to attend two private events on the same day, back to back, rushing from one venue to another. I like socialising at these private events. It is interesting. I enjoy meeting new people and making new friends. It's something I enjoy doing. My Big commented to our common friends in front of fashionably yours that my events in one day is more than his activities in a week. From these private events which I attended, I noticed mostly are the women folks that turned up together with their girlfriends. Usually their significant other keep low profile and don't turn up together with them at these private events. I knew it because we can see familiar faces rubbing shoulders with each other. It's our networking for like minded people and we chat with each other happily. In other words, it's the wives or girlfriends who turned up minus their significant other. I can see the similarities in my case. My Big has no time to attend such private events wth fashionably yours. Furthermore, I think it's not his cup of tea. I would prefer to attend such private events (in the fashion and arts) with bestie and girlfriends. It's more fun, chic and hip to see and to be seen with your girlfriends at such private events. My Big said he will ask me to accompany him to his private events to rub shoulders with his other VIPs of the State. Those are the very grand and formal private events, given his social status. He needs a woman socialite like me with good PR skills, who knows how to mingle around and can talk to anybody with ease.
Never under estimate the networking power of the wives or girlfriends at such events. The wives or girlfriends network, socialise and connect with each other. In turn, all these somehow play a role in influencing the husbands' or boyfriends' in decision-making in the business world. The wives' or girlfriends' voice carries some weight too. See, it's never easy being the woman behind the successful man. We are their pillar of strength, encouraging them and assisting them quietly in our own ways without making our man losing their male ego. In turn, hoping our significant other to be successful in the society. Also to treat us and cherish us, the wives or girlfriends better and lead a good life together.
When fashionably yours watch TV, it's the news, documentaries and some of my English sitcoms. I usually watch news from one Channel to another. Oh I would love to be the news anchorwoman reading the news. I like watching the news. I don't watch much TV shows though, apart from watching news almost everyday. I also read the newspapers everyday, TODAY, My Paper, The Straits Time and The Sunday Times.
Fashionably yours is generally a happy person. I like to socialise, read the newspaper regularly and watch less TV show, except watching the news and my favourite sitcoms. I don't have enough time to sleep, let alone have the time to watch TV shows. I am too occupied with my other activities. The last thing I wanna do is sleep, so watching TV shows is optional and not compulsory for me. On a side note, bestie lent me a Korean drama DVD the other time. I really have no time to watch it and returned it to her without watching it. Thanks for lending me the DVD, but I really have no time to watch it.
So, are you happy ? Do you watch lots of TV shows ? You may want to reflect and review. Afterall year end is approaching, time to do something about it. New Year Resolution ? Whether one is happy or not is very subjective. This is only a study carried out by the University of Maryland. If you feel happy by watching TV shows, by all means, go ahead and be happy to watch your TV shows.
I wish all my weblogders happiness. See you around !
Your result for What's Your Price?...
I'm worth $1900 million! (37 dealbreakers.)
In other words, you're just about priceless.
If we put you on the market, it looks like you'd be worth $1900 million. Of the 42 different scenarioes, you said you couldn't be bought on 37 of them.
For the record, every time you refused to do something for any amount of money, it added another $50 million to your score (hey, I had to assign it SOME sort of dollar value).
So, you're not easily bought. To score in this category, you must have said NO to at least two-thirds of the questions. It's easy for people to insist that they're not easily swayed by money, but it your case it seems that's actually the truth. You stick to your principles more strongly than most people do, and that's something to be proud of!
Feel superior. Next to you, everyone else looks sort of cheap.
Want to try one of the other tests I've made? I can't pay you. But they're really good. Honest.
Feel like a bit of randomness? This one's for you.
Can you charm a massive legion of fans, or will you just wind up in rehab?
Assuming you WEAR underwear.
Are your locks luscious?
My oldest test. Are you likely to wreak bloody havoc?
Puppies. Babies. Bunnies. Do you want to hug them, or dropkick them?
Are you savvy when it comes to communicating online?
Can you stay focu- ooh, look! An aeroplane!
The title kinda gives away what this one's about.
Do you have a forked tongue? A potty mouth?
Are you sweet and refreshing, or have you been spiked?

Last night I had a bad headache (as blogged in my last post). It is not panadol that cures me. Guess what, it is a can of Heineken beer that cures my headache. I think I have tension headache due to my stressful work schedule for the past few weeks. Immediately after I drank the can of Heineken beer, it relieves my tension headache. Viola ! my headache is gone and I feel so relaxing and slept very well. However, I still prefer to drink Carlsberg and Hoegarden beer.
Friday, November 21, 2008
Extract is our interesting convesation :
Me : I am going home to rest soon, got a bad headache...
Big : Feel better soon then.
Me: How is your XXXX ?
Big : My XXXX is better than your head.
Me : You bad.
My big is so bad, teasing my headache. (eyes rolling and look at him angrily).
My big will be working and working and working even during the weekend. Fashionably yours need lots of beauty sleep, since I only slept about 5 hours per night for the past few weeks. I shall be sleeping beauty this weekend. Beauty sleep is such a luxury to fashionably yours. I think my big is more tired than me because he has lots of work to do and might not have enough sleep. At least I can be sleeping beauty this weekend.
Have a nice weekend everyone.
OMG ! why am I so horny now....what did big do to me ? )

In fact, I leave him alone to handle his own stuffy. I did not disturb him so that he can concentrate on his work and not to be distracted by me. We are two busy people who are so busy and caught up with our own work and stuffy. I need to work, attend private events and catch up with friends. For the past few weeks, I just feel like sleeping after clocking12 hours everyday at work. Even weekends, I just want to hole up and rest. I just realized fashionably yours has been sleeping for only between 4 to 6 hours per night for the past few weeks. Sounds like a superwoman. How did I survive for sleeping for such a short number of hours. At least I need 7 to 8 hours of beauty sleep. Glad my budgeting and costing is almost done, only need to tie up the lose end and viola, it will be done ! I know I can do it.
I hope my big will complete his current urgent tasks on hand soon, so that he can spend more time with fashionably yours. Well, miss him and especially when he put his strong arms around me. He knows I miss him because I told him so. I know you miss me too. Big, I can see your tiredness in your eyes, when were gazing at each other. You are always gotcha by me. I can break through all your defences. You cannot hide from me. You still owe me lots of things, especially something you told me last month which I am looking forward to, but looks like slim chances. You must filfill them eventually, make it up to me when you are easy and shower me with your love.
For now, I shall leave you alone to do your work.
I like this phrase, so sharing it here with my weblogders. It sounds like fashionably yours is one of them. Well, I do get commented by people that my lifestyle is somehow quite similar to the actresses in the sitcom SATC. I dressed stylishly and branded from head to toe. Guess that's my lifestyle. Any similarities is just coincidental.
Where does one head out to after knocked off from work ? Guess generally one will head home after a hard day work. However, for me, usually I will drop by somewhere, someplace before heading home. Yesterday I chilled out at The Coffee Club at my favourite mall at The Paragon, sipping my Ice Latte while reading SATC novel. It helps fashionably yours to unwind and relax the mind. I like the ambience at the coffee club.
On my way home just now, I took some pictures of the Christmas Lights Up along Orchard Road. Wonder does it create the Christmas atmosphere for you.
As Lemon-san and I were together during lunch time yesterday, fashionably yours was stopped by so many people to say Hi and have brief exchange of words along the way. Lemon-san commented it.
Extract was our interesting convesation :
Lemon : Wow ! so many people say Hi to you. How come you know so many people ?
Me : Well, because I am friendly and I chat with anyone, as long as they are friendly too. Thus form many friendships.
In fact, it has always been like this, always a Hi here and there with people. Maybe I am approchable, easy-going, friendly and can get along pretty well with many people. I am very open about it, as long as they reciproacate and are open about it.

I am listening to this song this afternoon and I would like to share it here with everyone. This is one of my favourite song. Hallelujah.
You are the centre of it all,
The universe declares in awe
I surrender all
I make you The centre of my life
Lord, I respond with all I am
you placed in me the song
Of heavens melody
Your Majesty I live to sing Your song
Just now, went for a cup of coffee with Lemon-san at Centrepoint Mall, after we are done with our meals. As usual, we chat anything under the sun and enjoy each other company. Next, we went to Self Fix hardware shop because he needs to buy something.
Lemon-san bought this
Alrighty, break time over for fashionably yours and time to get back to work. In fact, Lemon-san just came over to my desk to talk to me while fashionably yours is blogging now :) See we are inseparable ! We are always together at work. He cannot be away from fashionably yours for too long :) Fashionably yours know that he will miss me !

My cup of black coffee
Monday, November 17, 2008
Urgh....still have some work to finish up before fashionably yours can call it a day. It has been a manic Monday for fashionably yours indeed, but I had fun too while working. Of course, went to drink coffee with Lemon-san just now during lunch time at Centrepoint. We had nice hot cup of coffee and chatting away.
Alrighty, need to get going and get out of the office real soon.

A few days ago, in the wee hours, fashionably yours received a message from big's friend, inviting fashionably yours to attend their friend's birthday party at a 5 star hotel on Saturday night. As a socialiite, fashionably yours will attend most parties and events, if fashionably yours' time permit. Of course, fashionably yours replied yes to attend. By right, fashionably yours should be at the party now and not here blogging. The friend said to let me know once confirmed. Fashionably yours did not receive any confirmation message todate, so here I am blogging. This incident lead me to remember a bible phrase.
Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails (Proverbs 19:21).
Human can plan many things in life, it is the LORD's purpose that prevails though How true that is.
God is good all the time and he knows what is best for us. Fashionably yours trust in the LORD and believe Jesus never fails. Amen.
A few days ago, fashionably yours' right foot, smallest toe was stepped accidentally by a colleague. Fashionably yours was coming out from the office lift while the colleague was going inside the office lift.....think she did not see fashionably yours and stepped into my feet....she was talking to her friends and did not see fashionably yours coming out from the lift. Ouch ! it was so painful......she did apologise but fashionably yours was in pain. It has some blue black now.....so painful that fashionably yours is not able to wear my Ferragamo's pumps, though fashionably yours is still able to walk, run and jump. Pray my small toe bruises will recover soon.
After this incident, fashionably yours met with another minor accident last Wednesday night. Only those very very close to fashionably yours know what that was. This minor accident is causing fashionably yours in pain too and with big bruises, like the map of Down Under. Fashionably yours will keep it that way. No more. Period.
Well, the two accident as described above are causing great pain physically to fashionably yours now. If fashionably yours were to attend the Saturday birthday party, fashionably yours will be dancing in pain, though seem to enjoy myself because fashionably yours is very good in camoflage, as a Socialite. It is God's will that fashionably yours stay home to recuperate and rest well to have a speedy recovery, so that fashionably yours can truly enjoy myself at other happening events and parties.
Actually deep down in fashionably yours heart wanted to decline the Saturday birthday party invitation due to my current conditions. Yet replied yes to attend ......this shows how true blue, fashionably yours is, as a socialite. Fashionably yours just do not know how to reject people, so God bless fashionably yours with the best solution in his divine strategy. Thank you Jesus.....you know what is best for fashionably yours and I trust the LORD.
Fashionably yours need lots of rest, because fashionably yours has been clocking 12 hours working in the office last week....I am feeling so so so very very tired physically and mentally......Yes LORD, fashionably yours need lots of rest......Thank you my LORD, as I praise your name and sing praises to you.....Empower me......
Nobody knows how weak I am, better than You
Nobody sees all of my needs better than You
And nobody has the power to change me to what I was born to be
Jesus be strong in my weakness, Empower me
Empower me, like a rushing river flowing to the sea
Lord send your holy spirit flowing now through me
'Til I'm living as your child, victorious and free
Send the power of Your love, empower me.
Nobody's eyes, see through my soul better than Yours
Nobody's love can make me whole no love but Yours
And nobody has the power to lift me to reach for eternity
Jesus break through all my defences, Empower me.
Enjoy the song, God bless and have a beautiful Sunday everyone.
God created the world in 6 days and the 7th day is rest day....the sabbatical day. The sabbatical day is for us to rest....yes LORD, I will rest well on this sabbatical day. Amen

Here are seven clear signs you might have a work spouse:
1. You depend on a particular co-worker for office supplies, snacks and aspirin.
2. There are inside jokes that you and a specific co-worker share
3. You can be bluntly honest with this person about his or her appearance, hygiene or hair (and vice versa). You're comfortable enough to point out that the other's hair is sticking up -- or that someone's fly is down.
4. When something eventful happens at work, this co-worker is the first person you seek out for a de-briefing.
5. At breakfast, lunch and coffee breaks, your closest co-worker knows what to order for you and how you like your coffee (and vice versa).
6. You and your co-worker can finish each other's sentences.
7. Someone in your office knows almost as much about your personal life as your best friend or real-life spouse does.
If you have the above signs, you have got yourself a work spouse. For me, yes I do have a work spouse. Do you have a work spouse ? Feel free to share with me.
