To sleep perchance to dream...

From Hamlet by William Shakespeare

Talk about whacked out dreams!

Last night was a classic in my "wet dreams gone weird" book...

I have been a huge fan of Doctor Who since the series has been resurrected to the hip and uber-sexy show that it is now. I also have a huge crush on David Tennant.

Could you take a guess at what my dream is about?

Well, I happen to be the Doctor's companion and we were starting to discover romantic feelings for each other!

We were having a quick bite to eat while we were in 1970s England. He told me that whilst he won't be able to live the rest of my life with me (being almost immortal), it doesn't stop him from falling in love with me. I told him that from the moment that I accepted his offer of being his travel companion, I'm his. He was about to kiss me when I was suddenly jolted awake by the joint snores of Arnie and my pug Meeko.

Grrrrr..... I was so tempted to knock Arnie on the back of his head. Here I was about to pash David Tennant, for crying out loud!

Perchance I dream again of my dear Doctor? Here's hoping...

Back from the brink...

I know, I have been away for sometime. It's been madness - work and life - and it has gotten in the way of updating this blog.

My apologies.

So, what have I been up to?

Well, wedding plans are starting to come into fruition. Invitations that are being mailed overseas have been sent to me and are on their way to the people we've invited. I have an appointment with bridal dressmaker to try on the dress that I saw on the shop's website. I have fallen in love with the dress and can't wait to put it on!

We have already picked up our wedding rings and it's now safely hidden in my closet (gotta remember to bring up the contents insurance - AGAIN!). I picked out a very simple 18k white gold band while Arnie got a two-tone 18k wedding band that is thicker and chunkier - suits his huge fingers.

What else? Oh, I got my wedding shoes! eBay is an absolute god send. Instead of paying around $200 for a pair of shoes that I'm only going to be wearing once, I got this beautiful ivory pair from England for only $67 and that already includes postage!

What else is new? I am now totally addicted to make-up. Recently, I bought a couple of eyeshadow pallets and lipstick from Clinique, Radiant Illuminator and lipstick from YSL, and am planning to buy another lipstick from Clinique and an eyeshadow pallet from YSL. Jesus, at age 29 and am only starting to like make-up??? Talk about a late bloomer! Hahaha!


So, what's in my bag? (Got this from Vayie)

It really depends on which I bag I'm using. If I have my big Burberry bag, this is what I usually have:

  • Burberry Nova Check Wallet

  • My mobile phone (Nokia N70)

  • Black iPod Video

  • Body Shop Almond Oil Hand & Nail Cream

  • Estee Lauder Powder Make-Up

  • hair brush

  • car keys

  • house keys

  • Clinique quickliner for lips Pink Truffle

  • Clinique lipstick Perfect Plum

  • YSL Rouge Pure Shine Sheer Lipstick Frosted Fig

  • Chupa Chups Strawberry and Cream

  • Vicks Butter Menthol

  • Parker pen

  • Medication (for my facet joints)

How about you? What do you have in your bag?
