Horoscope 2018

was a huge fan of horoscope back in sec 2 & 3.... even willing to spend a potion of my allowance buying horoscope books on both Libra and Chickadee from Big Bookshop at Old Woodlands Interchange back then... totally enjoyed reading them and finding out more about myself; justifying traits that i already recognised and sneering at those which weren't true or should i say at that time had not formed yet... 

example, it was always stated that i am creative and will likely be in the area of arts.... which i was totally disagreeable with la... i hated art at that time... it was like my worst worst worst subject... even had to negotiate with zhi hao that he would do my still-life drawing homework in exchange for using my textbook/ homework to copy.... wahahahaha....  it was always stressful attending art lessons with the crazy art teacher... we had to stand for more than a period watching his demonstration in complete silence every art lesson.... refusing to take art at sec 3 & 4 was my motivation to study super duper hard at sec 2 so that i could get into the pure science class... 

would still read the horoscopes in magazines and newspapers every now and then as i age but has never venture into fortune telling for the fear of being paranoid if i was told that bad things will be coming my way... i do believe in self-fulfilling prophecy in a bad way... =S 


but then i got married into the Ang, a family who believes in feng shui and 洪妈妈 and 洪爸爸 will take it upon themselves to make sure every one in the family is blessed with good fortune with their frequent visits to the various temples every year... 


since the beginning of this year, we have been warned that it's going to be a rocky year so have to be extra mindful... but us, being us, would just listen and forget about it... regret big time... i didnt expect it to be this rocky... 


洪妈妈 has been visiting many many temples over these few weeks since my first 离家出走记 and feedback has been rather positive though i have yet to witness it... then with the current 出走记 on Sunday, she made another trip immediately on Monday and texted me to collect my t-shirt which she had brought it along to the temple for prayer and to wear it... so made a trip back to home sweet home after work on Tuesday and took the opportunity to meet up with her to explain the situation...

the meet up ended with a visit to the fortune teller near our place whom she said is very accurate... he gave me hope which i am gonna to hang on to to tide over these few days/weeks/months/years... like chunyang said, it's a waiting game with no define dates but like yuan said, "it will let time 好过一点"... totally agree with yuan, my mood totally lifted after hearing what the fortune teller said... hopefully everything will be back to normal soon... even if it didnt, i guess my mood will be much controllable by then... 


since i am on leave today... i started googling on fortune telling, horoscope etc... decided to check out our family 风水师's website and was in for a terrible shock.... 


but because of this clause on the website,

i cant copy the content here.... but you can read the rude shock that i read for my chickadee forecast and Mr Ang's dragon forecast by clicking on the embedded links... it's damn scarily 准 la... it's exactly what Mr Ang and I are going through right at this moment...

it makes me feel that things in life has been pan out like a circuit board and that we as humans are just going through the motions like electric currents ... but yet, we can still reduce the impact, make amendments if we are directed to make appropriate changes along the way.... maybe like opening certain switches, adding a diode here or there to divert bad stuff away etc... =P

haven been this religious in my life... i promise i'll be a good religious girl if this whole thing really work out the way i hope for.... my 要求 is really not that unattainable leh ... i just wanna be 甜蜜蜜 with Mr Ang till we are old ... say for another 40 years... 
拜托,拜托了!

空欢喜一场 之 真的结束了吗?

the week that i returned home after the first 离家出走记 was blissful... we went Lola's on Wed, we celebrated his birthday at Tunglok on Thursday, we chilled together on Friday night at Switch, we spent time together on Saturday from lunch to dinner with a little shopping at suntec in between after he went to collect his sundown marathon pack... i thought we would work it out.... slowly but surely.... cos we love each other... 

he even brought up the topic on getting the clock tattoo which he has been wanting to do ... he didnt do it previously because he couldnt answer my question on what time does he plan to make it permanent on him.... this time round, he told me he wants it at 7 点十一个字 to represent the day we got together, 11 July.... i smiled and said okay, i support... and he teased me that so long it's about us, everything is okay hor?.... yes, cos besides his heart, his body is mine too... 

Things changed a little after his meeting with his ex-boss on that Saturday night ... his ex-boss offered him the same position as sale manager or even higher if he's willing to return after his NIE bond, 4 years from now... i dont know what else they had discussed but i know this idea excites him alot... he was grining from ear to ear even though he kept saying, "aiya, it's 4 years later, anything can change.. may not come true also"... i told him whatever he decides, i will support him... 

he was out almost every night there after till the wee-mornings to celebrate his birthdays with friends even though i was rather sick at home from Wednesday onwards... i din ask him to accompany me.... he didnt think there was a need to accompany me... 我很乖, 我没闹, 没给黑脸, 没有 roll eyes... i always say "Have a good time and enjoy ur night'... and thanks to the medication, i just went to sleep at 10+pm almost every night ... 

but overall, he was still sweet to me... as he was injured from a soccer game the previous week, he couldnt go for his sundown on sat night so he made plans to pick me up from volunteering work to have dinner together then proceed to OSG bar to listen to his ex-tuition kid, Gwendolyn's singing... 

But on sat morning, his ex-boss asked him for a meet-up... he was very excited over why his ex-boss would ask for a meet-up so soon and thus flew my aeroplane... i wasnt angry but was definitely disappointed cos i really really dislike his ex-boss... he was still sweet and suggested to have yakun for breakfast and also to have dinner together on sunday ... double score happiness... =)... i am really easily satisfied when i can feel the love de.... =)  

he reached home at 3+am after catching the FA cup with his ex-boss. I was awake as my cough woke me up to take my medication. He announced with much glee that his ex-boss offered him 100k/year, sales directorship, profit sharing and even asked if his wife who is the current sale manager should be under his charge too... i was kind of drowsy from the medication and was at a lost on how to react so i just listened, maybe nodded here & there and smiled a few courtesy smiles... guess he could sense i wasnt really interested and as excited as he was so he stopped and we went to bed... each in our own thoughts... 

i woke him up at 10am the next morning for our yakun breakfast... but i could feel that the attitude totally mega dived in the 5-6 hours that we were sleeping/thinking... so i asked him if he had made a decision... he said he will sell his car if the NIE bond has to be paid in one lump sum... i told him that it can be repaid in installments... i also told him, i will support his decision and even offered to share to pay the bond since he had felt that it was my fault for 'nagging and coercing him' to join MOE 2 years ago... 

i wasnt prepared for the hell that broke lose almost immediately... he told me that he regretted being 心软 and for asking me to return back to our home sweet home after the first 离家出走记... he feels that the love is gone... now he just want to be all alone, by himself, dont want family, dont want me, don't want his parents, dont want the pups... he just want to be alone and that he will move out that very night..... WTF had just happened?!?!?!?!... how come can escalate so fast de?!?!?!?!? 

seriously, this ex-boss of his is a mega 小人 in our marriage.... i never hated someone so much.... i hate this guy call KENNY from voltrium system pte ltd to the maximum core... i do not believe in everything that he has lured akm with... who in the right mind will want to look for a successor at age 45?!?!?! who in the right mind will want to share a company which he had single handedly built up the last 18 years... A LIER for sure... i m very sure he just wanna make use of akm's chiongness to earn more profit cos NONE of his employees in his last 18 years managed to do anything great... come on, after 18 years, his company is still a miserable less than 8 people company and one who has no employee who will stay for more than 3/4 years?!?!?!?!?  i really dont know what akm sees in this company?!?!?!?!? ... machiam 中邪了... 

anyway, he repeated insisted that i wont accept who he will become eventually when he's back into his sale job... he very confidently claimed that i will not be genuinely happy if we continue together ... he just want me to go, to leave him alone and if i don't, he will do the extreme of getting and bedding a new girl immediately, which he knows is something that i really cannot accept... i begged him not to do this to a girl, to himself and to me... i really dont understand his logic when he's in his illogical mood....

but sadly, i have to agree with him. I really won't like the him that he will be becoming... one who smokes, yes, he and i know he will pick up smoking again just like how he picked it up while working back there 2 years ago... it took a long while of nagging and coercing him to change for the better to eventually get him to quit... his definition of 'nagging and coercing him to change for the better' is my definition of 'sharing my opinion, i just want the best for you' ... i mean why pick up something which u know is harmful and smelly?!?!?!?! ... 

we also know that he will also be putting in at least 19 hours each day on his job on site and at home preparing quotation & shooting emails etc... yes, he can survive with super little sleep over long period of time when he needs to and when he wants to.... he used to say that i stressed him up when i kept asking him to sleep early during his uni days... 

he will be flying all over the world to open new markets, for trade shows, to meet suppliers etc ... dosent matter that these will eat into his weekends, public holiday, family time, us time... dosen matter that that shitty company only give him 10 days leave that are forced over xmas, new year and cny... meaning that he cant take leave as and when he wants .... 

this was a huge issue between us previously cos it means that he wont be able to go on any holiday with me so long that i am still a teacher and i did acted up a little during his 2 years with the company previously... this contributed to his change of work in 2016 which he regretted deeply and this contributed to how he sees me as a hindrance in his life for his career achievement... 

i assume i was his love then, that's why he did all that he could to do the things i prefer, always seeking my opinions, changing his job so that we can have common holidays together, showering me with lots of love, care, hugs and kisses till i felt i was the luckiest girl every single day for the last 9 years.... but god knows why and how, out of nowhere, he realised that his love for sale/ career/ power is his one mega love, one so strong that he's willing to trade everything he has for it... 真的是中邪了... 

our values and priorities used to be the same 9 years ago... he told me he is a family person, he tells his mum everything and seeks comfort in his mum when he broke up with his previous gf... that he is a very simple man who also enjoys cheap stuff and is not into branded and spending money unnecessary... he is also very 长情 towards the things that he likes... example, he only plays one game - Fifa, he only plays one sport - badminton, he only watches one program - EPL, he only supports one soccer team - Man U... and all these love started in primary school till then and actually is still on-going... 

it was all these that he said that I decided to give our relationship a start...that was in 2009.... when i was 28 and him only 21.... i din change throughout these years, he did.... he outgrown them... 

but one thing remains the same for him, is how fast and furious he makes his decisions.... the whole roller coaster ride, from us not noticing any cracks to him wanting a divorce now, now, now has a time span of only 5 weeks... everything was still blissfully fine as of 16 April morning when i went to work and him to OBS...  

i had helped him pack his bag the night before, making sure he had everything he needed and teaching him how to roll his clothing to save space for his return trip etc.... he texted me our usual 'love you lots' and updated me that he was on the boat toward the OBS campsite at 9.24 am before his phone was quarantine by the instructors... and everything is over on 20 May evening even after much pleading from me, yes... i am that useless... he still insisted that it's over between us...  我们真的结束了吗?... 



猛追的,是他
要快快结婚的,也是他
现在吵着要马上离婚的,也是他

非常舍得 but i am always on the receiving end of all his decisions...

rice in seafood broth ... i very much prefer the lobster version at Orchid Live Seafood restaurant @ Jalan Kelulut


though there were only two of us... though we had already ordered 3 other dishes.... but how could we not order the peking duck at a peking duck restaurant... that would be too disrespectful right?!?!?!?!....

虚惊一场 之 离家出走记

From the first conversation on Fri night to Sat then to Sun... it was a heart wrenching 48 hours... so painful it was that i had to seek refuge back in woodlands with the pups in tow... there was just no room for discussion with that stubborn Taurus of mine... he insisted that he wanted to live a solitary life to do whatever he wants without having to take anyone's opinion into consideration... he admitted that he was being selfish.. =S 

his frustration towards me could have stemmed from his feeling of worthlessness as a trainee teacher... he had always enjoy the limelight and power as a student and in his previous sale job... so the slow pace in his training now irks him to the max... he blamed me for being his main reason for the switch from his previous sales job to teaching... the combination of financial stability and having YOLO friends around also tempted him to want to enjoy a better quality of life which I am not really an advocate for... 


he was also frustrated at the numerous NOs, accompanied with eye rolling and cold shoulders that i have been giving him; no to buying an expensive car, getting elaborate tattoos, going for a solo trip just before his europe trip with kelvin this december, a JB trip on top of the mountain climbing trip in indonesia with his nie friends this june... 

though it was the most difficult 48 hours of my life to date, i was extremely thankful for the chuas, Joyce, Mab, 洪妈妈, Yiling, Chunyang and Charlene who took the time and effort to comfort and support me & to dissect and analyse the issue at hand... 

Joyce was the first to came to my aid, accompany me on both sat & sun... and even took me to ikea just to cut short my home alone time... Mab popped by on sat night till midnight and highlighted things that were not very healthy in our relationship which i had never realized before... 

broke the news to mummy at the canteen while she was rumbling on on what to cook for him the following Saturday ... She put up a strong front for me but cried buckets after i left... Alfred texted me to let me know that he is a good listener and that our family is just a call away and will always be there for me... coming from the quietest member of the chuas, it meant so so so much.... Angela accompanied me through text the moment she was available and video called when i told her it was scarily quiet to be home alone that sunday night... she was crying even before i did... such a silly girl... she even wanted to fly back from Australia to be by my side...    

i didn't know how to face him when he was home and i didn't know how to face the empty house when he wasn't home... 

所以我回家了 ... 伤心绝望地回了一趟娘家 ... 

alarmed 洪妈妈 with a goodbye text to the family chat group who rushed over to home sweet home only to find it empty... He left the house when he saw me packing and i took the pups along with me to the chuas... upset and worried 洪妈妈 so much that she rushed to the temple the very next day to have our fortune calculated... we are considered the perfect match in the eyes of the god... guess perfection took a break these 3 weeks.. =S  

i dozed off at 12+, woke up at 2+am, it was the 3rd night where sleeping wasn't my forte anymore... brownie was walking round and round in circles on the bed... snowy, although was in her sleeping position had her eyes wide open throughout the night... mum woke up at 3+am and didnt go back to sleep... the 4 of us, each in our own thoughts, slept very little that night... 

was too emotionally unstable for work and called in sick... chatting with Alvin over breakfast made me realise how much of an impact my marriage has over how he views his relationship... it really isn't just about us... it affected every one at the chuas... it affected the pups... it affected Charlene 

was texting with Yiling when the idea of depression popped up... that was when i realised that my hubby 好像是生病了... i softened and then it was so much easier to communicate with him... and out of the blue, he asked if i would want to go home? 

姓洪的,你是在玩我吗?

not that i am complaining, but it took him less than 18 hours after i moved out to get out of his shell, to realise that he loves me too much to let me out of his life in order to pursue the fun & the glory... very likely he misses the pups too much too... but whatever the reason, i am glad this whole ordeal is over ... i am back at home sweet home... 

main take away from this episode;

treat him as an equal; he's no longer the 21 year old boy who needs my opinion in everything he does 

love him for who he is; 他就是这么拼的人

love him less; so that 有他, 没他, 都一样, so that it will be less painful the next time round, the real time round

be more mindful of my eye rolling... =P

That's it... The End

his sianx and 勉强 face resulted in my sianx mood which eventually led to my pek chekness ... so decided to take a walk to get ice cream on my own and also get some think time over a glass of ice milo while playing homescape at the kopitiam... 

these 2 weeks after his obs camp has been rocky.... finally fed up with all the emo-ness and uneasiness... i decided that talking it out and finding out what was the trigger to these yucky emotions was the best solution... something must have happened during the obs camp... turned out that he was reflecting on his life during the 4 long nights and realised that he is extremely vex with his life right now... he felt that all the trainings, assignments and reflection is a mega waste of his time... 

wtf... nie must be my relationship curse... it was in nie that my last one ended... and now it's because he had too much think time in the nie obs camp that this is to happen...  

as he shared his frustration over his current situation, he blame me for coercing him to quit his sale job and to come into teaching ... 

but i felt quite 冤枉 lo... he himself had signed up with moe before he took up his phd, and he was giving so many tuition since his uni days that i thought teaching was something that he dun mind having as a career... 

so when sales took up too much of his time and he was constantly stressed and frustrated over his work 2 years ago... i encouraged him to make the switch... 

i was really happy when he made the switch cos it would mean that we can have the same holiday together which was not possible in his previous sales job... i thought that having a less stressful job that allows us to have more quality time together will strength our marriage... 

little did i know, i sowed the seed of his resentment towards me... the seed took 2 years to germinate but took only 4 nights to blossom big time.... =S 

from what he shared with me, i think it started off with "wtf was he doing at the camp doing silly activities and with no access to phone (whatsapp & carousell) for 4.5 days... means he couldnt be doing what he wanted to do most... sell his 3D printing filaments and communicate with prospective buyers... 

then it spun off to why isnt he allow to do what he wants now, he wants to leave teacher training, he wants to focus on selling his 3D printing filament, he wants to earn a lot of money, he wants to be an entrepreneur, he wants to 说走就走 to go travel to see what he can bring back to Singapore to sell, he wants to go hang out with his friends, he wants to YOLO, he wants to have 满足感 and purpose in his life which he cant cos i am in his life... so he started to think of 'what if'... 

listening to all these let me know that our time as the 甜甜蜜蜜 Mr & Mrs Ang is up... i m no longer the priority in his life... my kind of simple happiness doesn't attract him anymore...  

all along, i knew a super busy worklife will destroy a marriage... that's why i always make family a priority...he knew it when we first knew each other... the 11 hours we spent on talking about our expectation on our first date used to be something that i was quite proud of... i thought by stating our expectation and finding a match will make this relationship a success... but i am still wrong... 人真的是会跟着时间在变...Mr Ang 长大了... 

i tried salvaging, compromising but to no avail... 8 years 10 months after we first met each other... 8 years 9 months after we got together and 7 years 4 months of marriage... except for the last 2 weeks, all the time with him has been amazingly sweet and perfect from my perspective... but it was actually already over 2 years ago... 


so that's it... The End

Shopping with Capitaland Vouchers

April was such a busy month for Mr Ang that we had to use 2x cheat-code for April's Happi Wife, Happy Ang activity...


1st cheat - It was on 1 May instead of in April

2nd cheat - The activity was 'Shopping', which under normal circumstances, would never be considered a Happi Wife, Happi Ang activity ... =P 


but the twist to it was, all our shopping that day was paid with vouchers.... wahahahhaa... cheap thrill for a catty couple... =) 



we have a total of $600 worth of CapitaVouchers from Bankbazaar.sg for signing up for a HSBC and a Citibank credit card each... no minimum spending required upon receiving the card for the redemption.... both of us have yet to use our HSBC card after 3 months of receiving them, on the other hand, we mad love Citi cash back card so much that it became our primary card for almost every spending since January.... Citi kept tempting us with all the different kind of rebates.... our kind of cheap thrill.... 



with the objective of buying a coffee table for our living room, our first stop of the day was IMM... both carparks were full and there was a snaking queue of cars waiting for parking.... the sight nearly drove us away but quick thinking Mr Ang decided to check out the HDB parking opposite IMM and was glad to find free parking there because of public holiday... =D 




lunch was a simple affair @ Wanchai Hong Kong Tea Room



dessert came first as we had ordered them together with the main dish... (-_-!!!) 







炸酱面 for me.... i tot it would the korean black sauce version... 

and seafood hor fan for him 


didnt know that coffee tables are so expensive these days.... couldnt spot anything that were within our budget despite walking 2 rounds... 



so off we went to Bugis+ where Mr Ang spent a $50 voucher on Uniqlo tops 


to replace this 'famous green t-shirt' which had a hand sewn heart heart from me... =D 



while I spent another $50 voucher on these 2 dresses from Temt... 



the day ended with Mac nugget meal paid with vouchers redeemed from Happy Dot ...

Awful emo week for the Angs

Mr Ang has been busy... busy with teaching, busy with delivering, busy with assignments and tests, away at OBS for 5 days, busy with celebrating the end of OBS and assignments and tests with his friends that i felt i was like last of his priority this past 7 days .... suddenly i was like the kind of family member which i hate to be... the kind that just happened to be in the same living space... the kind that do the same activities such as eating, and sleeping on the same bed just because we happened to be at the same place at the same time... =S

was damn super emo for 1 WHOLE WEEK (Friday night to Thursday morning), the longest and second time i had because of him in our 9 years together... my favourite exercise this week was eye rolling at everything he said...

it all started because of his obs camp which resulted in him being totally uncontactable from 9am on Monday till 4pm on Friday... missed him lots and was already slightly emo being the only one at home... as an obs survivor myself, i understand his tiredness when he finally came home... i dont even dare to request to go out for dinner or buy bubble tea or have an ice-cream which was quite the norm for us on Friday nights...

first ice bucket came when i asked about his weekend schedule; 5 lessons each on both Saturday & Sunday ... i whined a little and he could 理直气壮 reply me that he already informed me the week before... fine, i 忍...

we were home from dinner at 洪 mama's place by 8+pm... he was so life-less throughout dinner and didnt even let me stay to finish my korea drama that i thought he would just go to bed since he said he didnt sleep much during the camp, especially the last night when the group stayed up to chit chat till the wee morning...

结果 i was given the second ice bucket shortly after we reached home, he said he was going to meet his nie friends for drinks... i am not the kind who will say cannot or throw a fit to make him stay home but i was like "huh?!?!?!?" ... he was like "i haven't seen them for a week"... i was like "you also din see me for one whole week what"... he said he would just join them for a while and should be back by 10+/11pm...

i think i was in shock and didnt really know how to react at that instant... i was still all cool and smiley when he left... then i was like "wtf" when the home alone feel set in... ... i waited till 1am lo... by then i was fuming with sadist thoughts and revengeful childish thoughts... didnt even want to acknowledge him when he returned...

i thought i could sleep it off... but no, woke up the next morning still feeling horrible... didnt feel any better even when he cancelled the last lesson for each day to accompany me back to 蔡 mummy's place and to Sin Heng Bak Kut Teh for dinner for Saturday & Sunday...

we had some conversations about why i was acting up like that ...but nothing could 安抚 my grouchiness... not even when he apologised and said he loved me blah blah blah and was still nice and sweet while i rolled my eyes and gave him one word / sarcastic answer in my very 不爽 voice with no eye contact throughout the few days... i just couldn't be the usual bubbly + act cute + teh wifey whom i usually am.. =S

though things seems to be back to normal by Tuesday, it didnt last long till Mr Ang went out for a drink again and came home at 2am on a Wednesday night... so it was like a home alone day for me again... totally sianx mood ... not so much of emo-ing since it was a re-occurrence within such a short interval... but these events just kept me thinking of the why and how of the change in my and his behaviour and attitude?!?!?! it really didnt help that we just celebrated our 7th year wedding anniversary this Jan too...

oh... and i realised that on both occasions that he went out, he would text me to do some form of remediation; cancelling one slot each of his weekend class, which i totally did not appreciate, and proposing we go on a date on May day (next tuesday) which i retorted that that's in May... he was quick enough to then counter propose a date this Friday night (April)...

him: This fri night??? We can go dating too... woohoo... night musuem
me: what time?
him: 7pm
me: there's no interesting exhibition this week... by the time we have dinner, it will be 8+pm... i need to wake up early for lesson sat... so nvm....

but can tell i was super 不领情 lo... but i just couldnt control my 小姐脾气... he still went on to say that he will find somewhere nice... but to me, a dinner or any meal, no matter how nice or how expensive just doesn't have the power to make me feel any better in this kind of situation...

Mood elevated a little only after he said that he has never take me for granted and explained why he was meeting up with his friends so often this week and that he will stop some of his weekend lessons after the mid-year so that we can go for more dating ... =P

mood better also means I'm in the mood to google search what activity is available for our April's Happi Wife, Happi Ang on a Friday Night after 8pm that doesn't end too late, is not about food nor movie... and i found Karting Arena @ Turf Club that's open till 10pm... =D

Ah - ah!!!... i found out that once i can look forward to my kind of activity for both of us according to our once a month Happi Wife, Happi Ang schedule, i am actually quite okay with him being busy and not being around...

Please let me find just one of such activity that can fit into his busy schedule every month... i really dont wanna be the moody, grouchy, unlovable Mrs Ang that i was in the last 7 days... =S


there you go... it's not always sweet and rosy for the Angs too... though there is definitely more ups than downs in the ratio of 99:1 ... =P

back in Marymount Convent





was back at my primary school for this year's south zone STAR champion workshop... =D... the last time i was there was 24 years ago with Mei.... everything about the building has changed as it was demolished and rebuilt... heng, the uniform, school crest and its location on top of the hill still remains the same... 

reached rather early at 1.20pm to have lunch in the school canteen and to observe the crowd during dismissal... 

$1 mac & cheese
不好吃的... 冷冷的... =S




was busy people watching and this group of 学妹s came to share table with me... either they were so use to having strangers around or i was sitting at their regular table... =P



was finding my way around to the course venue when i found the heritage corner ... 

old images of how the school looked like during my time...


the tree in the centre of the carpark which we had to run round and round during PE lesson... =S 

school badges.... i still have mine.... it's considered antique liao oh.... the current badge is the iron-on kind which i thought was pretty ugly....


i belong to Ms McCathy's and Miss Schoolbeck's era who sadly had passed away in 2012 and 2014 respectively. 



the hall where i had PE lessons on some days, watched teachers' day performances, being tortured during gymnastic CCA, sang along and cried bucket during graduation concert etc


Mrs Ee (first from the left) was my music teacher who was rumored to have transplanted eyes which scared the hell out of me... she was extremely fierce and i was so frightened of her that i broke a pencil into two while panicking over not bringing my recorder for one of her classes.... 

Mrs Dharma (centre) was my P6 form teacher... but instead of remembering her for her English, Math and Science teaching.... i remembered her most for our art lessons... she taught me potato printing, repeat pattern, threading raffia string on embroidery plastic grid to make pencil case / bag.... i remembered re-doing it endless time just because i couldn't make up my mind on the design and ended up not completing the project... (-.-!!!) ... and last but not least, decorating a lab coat with feathers from feather dusters and damaged shuttlecocks.... 


'Daughters of Marymount' - a line in our school song... and the school song is still the same old one that i sang for my 5.25 years in MCS (i was a transferred student) ... =D




this news came out when i was in P5 .... sad to the max...




only the school's motto looks familiar... =) 





a very happy me... =D


sheltered walkway along the hill



the junction at the bottom of the hill where the school bus i was on was hit by a TIBS bus when i was in P3 ... my head kissed the metal edge of the window and required 3 stitches ... =S

the bridge which we had to run across during some of our PE lessons... =S... #hatingPEsincePrimarySchool

this trip back really brings back lots of sweet memories.... am really happy to have this chance to be back... =D
