I got mail!

29 06 2008

Yes… I got my mail..

Nope. it is not email…

Yes .. I got my tax bills..

*Phew* Relieved to receive it …coz it meant that whatever I was afraid or imagine it to be here is not valid! *yuhuuu*

Normally I will pay the whole lump sum for my tax bill, and be very broke…

Perhaps I should opt for the GIRO payment.. just like some of my colleagues..

Hmmmm…

Let me ponder on this ..

幸福 and 健康

26 06 2008

How true… how true…

“一个人的、幸不幸福,在于父母健康不健康。”

你快乐所以我快乐。里头包含的是一个“情”字。父母的快乐来自儿女的健康成长。孩子的快乐则来自父母能健康老去。张菲言之有物。

Images now and then

25 06 2008

23rd June 2008

Our department’s secretary, Jesline, was revamping our noticeboard today … Our self-fotos (mini-self-portrait) was initially placed at other level, where big boss is, together with other biz groups’ R&D engineers… Dunno why the transfer now … perhaps the R&D departments are growing thus they need to make way for other departments so it was natural enough that our own department took back the list of our own self-fotos.. since we had a level of our own…. I was not complaning.. In fact I was enjoying looking at my colleagues’ old self-fotos.. including mine.. =) =p

noticeboard

Realized the much changes of my colleagues … the then and now images … hahaa  Many also commented that I looked so much different in my self-foto… huuaahhhaaa… That shot was taken after a foto studio of my graduation shot with my parents… I remembered that make-up… yeah it had been a looooong time… *memories memories*

In an attempt to ‘upgrade’ my self-foto, i picked up 3 of my fotos.. of different hairstyles (Rebonded, curly, short) in my stay here…

*GOSH*

How much I have fatten changed throughout these years?!?! Unbelieveable!!

Pic 1: long rebonding hair (at least 4-5years ago)

long rebonding hair

Pic 2: Long Curly hair (about 2 years ago)

long curly hair

Pic 3: Short rebonded hair (now)

short rebonded hair

When I told my girls abt this … this ‘stupid’ Lao Da remarked: “Muahahahaha, I can’t help but notice that your hair grew shorter w each photo but they are all used to cover the excess bulges on your cheeks ; p

WHAT!!!! @#$%^*(*&^%$#$*&^%$#$%*(*&^%$#$%^

But then…. Think I must really do something… yeah right!! =p

So which kind of hairstyle will u like??? Or think suitable for me?? What is your favourite??

deep-sixed asked me what is my favourite hairstyle??

Dilemma

I like all……… curly looks is nice & girlish.. a bit different from usual rebonding…

I like the fact i can tied up my hair without worrying there is a line mark on my hair (a problem with rebonding.. and the overgrown natural hair…. *shake head*)

but the taking care and the aftermaths after 1yrs… like messy hair, dry hair, ‘hard hair’ (coz i need to use hair stuffs to make it curly, since it is not so curly anymore) … is horrendous..

Short hair is good.. light, refreshing.. except the fringe tends to be long often (need haircut often), and when it is oily and stuffy, they look yucky.. so they look like shit if i have a long day… -__-“” I thought by cutting the fringe shorter will be better (no need haircut so often).. but now it also like a ‘bai chi’ …  *roll eyes* … hahaa =p

So what do you think??

Well eventually i choose pic 3 for the new self-portrait.. It is me now..  my boss & few colleagues agreed with me.. Some of the colleagues are ‘upgrading’ their self-foto too… but I prefer to choose fotos from my selection than to take pic now in office… Wiser choice as I looked ‘pale’ & bloated & ‘salah’ with no make-up, plus I have this fringe that looked like it was bitten by kungfu panda!! *GeeEee* -__-“” =p





ToTo

25 06 2008

I bought a ToTo last week for the 19th June 2008

Firstly 20th June 2008 is my birthday – maybe it will bring me good luck

2ndly the grand draw is quite big for that day..

3rdly .. I fantasized that it will be a big lump sum of money… solved my financial concerns/matters/issues .. will be good to have lots of $$ before I reach 30! hoohooohooo =p

In the end, when I look at the result.. 

*shake head*

Thinking aloud:

Cheeyyy!! Matched ONE number ONLY!! No where close!!”

*sianz*





Tax bills?

24 06 2008

For those Singaporean or Singapore PR or expats working in Singapore.. Have you gotten your tax bills??

I am surprised that I have not gotten my tax bills yet.. I should have gotten it by end of May last year .. if I remember correctly.. I thought mine should be quite fast to clear coz I do not have many reliefs to claim …like parents’ relief, NS relief, maids relief, kids’ relief….. I am just a not-married Singapore citizen with no maid, no kids, no hubby…..  Sometimes I am glad my tax is easy coz I am free with all those stuffs… I think I can go crazy with all those complicated tax matters…

Then I got worried… imagining…. that maybe I filled my tax form wrongly?? Coz this year I claimed for course relief….. Or maybe I am not eligible for course relief !?!? Later they accused me of filling the form wrongly?? Or maybe my tax bills was lost along the way (it does not reach to me..). And without me knowing, then maybe later ‘kena’ (slapped) 5% penalty for not paying my tax bills!! The list went on….. Yeah I got wild imagination sometimes… =p worry too much!!

So I checked with my colleagues today.. Some of my colleagues have gotten, some have not… but fret not…. it is normal..  And i double confirmed it by accessing the goverment site.  But if you do not received your tax bills by September 2008 this year, then maybe you should worry. So I will just wait for a little more time..

Below is what i extract from the IRAS website:

Home > Individuals (For locals) > After filing tax >

有用心,就能开心

24 06 2008

How many of us can do this? But still I will wanna have that in mind… When there is one person who put heart and sincerety to something (like a relationship), then there will be two happy & fulfilled people

“有一个人用心,就能两个人开心。”

                说的不只是感情。偶尔,我们总会不自觉把自我放大,抱着“为何要有我先开始”的自私念头。爱,不该有先后程序。大美人林青霞的这一句话,是否对你有所启发?
