Once unheard of, even peacful Sabah has had minor quakes, also not far apart from each other. 2.6 in Ranau, then 3.0 in Keningau approx. 2 weeks later.. What does this mean? Just last year, Oliver and I were talking about how we dont believe 2012 will be the end, but in such a short time frame, so many things are happening, and it just keeps getting worse.
The one good thing is that we are able to evacuate people in anticipation of the tsunamis, saving hundreds and thousands of lives; a sliver of hope through the darkness. But what else can we do? There are so many homeless, injured, dead. I read that the Haiti quake (7.0 on the Richter scale) damaged 50% of the country; half the country rendered useless and helpless. The Chile quake, which hit 8.8 on the Richter scale, is the fifth strongest quake of the century, how much damage has been done there? Japan has seen 2 quakes in the past month..
We, as mere spectators, can only watch in horror as all of this happens around us. But we cannot live in fear. Millions of people now need our help, and it is our duty as citizens of the world to help spread the message, donate to legitimate charities, and to do our part in trying to soothe Mother Nature. The time is now, and we must act before it is really too late..

Until Ray decided to weigh himself. Of course, he hasnt gained a thing (personally, I think he's reached the limit.. ;p). So I stepped on the scale and looked down to discover....
...I've gained 2kgs!! In less than a week!! Is that even possible? Omg.. The shock, the horror!! ... Ok, in my defense to writing what may seem like such a bimbotic post, the shock is actually because I have reached my all-time heaviest.. At a crucial time when I need to lose more weight!! I mean, who's gonna want a petite AND plus-sized model? Huh?? Sigh.. This is a career post, not a weight post, really!! ;p
So I guess it's back to the grindstone. Gym, trying (key word) to control what and how much I eat, more slimming lotion to be slathered on I suppose.. Sigh.. So depressing.. Nyeh.
The girl who loves food, specific food.

It's the My year!! (To those of you who dont know, I am a Tiger because I was born before CNY in 1987; I usually tell people I am a Tiger tail and a Rabbit head, which seems to sit right with how my personality is anyway.. ;p) Have you read your horoscopes for the Tiger year yet? I've seen a couple online, and a couple in the newspapers.. I also scanned through Lilian Too's Feng Shui zodiac series in Popular bookstore, shh~!! =p Unanimously, this year is gonna be a good year, and it should be!! A year of change..
Anyway, without further ado, here's me wishing all of you

I know it's because I have an over-active mind, which is kinda like my mouth - It wont shut up. (Har-har) I know there are also at least 2 more major reasons as to why I cant sleep:
1. I wake up at 1 or 2pm everyday.
2. I do nothing except sit on my (gradually expanding) ass all day.
Sigh.. I could never take a lifetime of doing nothing. I am bored out of my brains already. Being a tai-tai so young is not a good idea!! Worst thing is, I cant even do things I wanna do cz I cant bloody drive!! ...... And Ray's working so I cant expect him to chauffeur me around all the time can I?? This is so irritating.. Pfft..
So I'm online. Blogging, going through perezhilton.com, researching some stuff... Til I eventually fall asleep, probably near 6am, when I will have to wake up 2 hours later to watch over Ray's maid (who comes once a week). At least I'll have no choice but to be up early, so hopefully I'll be able to sleep at a decent time tomorrow..
Now to more pressing matters: I'm so HUNGRY~!!! Ugh... Hope Ray takes me out to breakfast before work tomorrow.. Now that's something to look forward to.. ;p

Andy, Sue, and moi
When Nalin got off work I joined her as she wanted to chill over drinks, so we stopped at this bar called Sutraa.. This is where she introduced me to the one alcoholic drink that I actually can take - Malibu Pineapple. It tastes nothing like alcohol!! Yay!! So Calista finally has an alcoholic drink, and when people say "no soft drinks", I can actually order something to shut them up.. Muahahahaha.... Thanks Nalin! =p
