FINALLY!!! I’ve got my Mac Powerbook… going to install stuff now… tata 🙂

What Would I Blog About Otherwise?

I’m constantly surprised at my forgetfulness. I kept wondering why my transitlink card was making strange noises as I got on and off the bus today. Later I realised it was ‘cos I had 2 cards in my wallet – mine & my grandmother’s, which I was supposed to top-up. I’m not sure if I […]

In the Sam of Time

Just got back from a walk at the Botanics with Sam… we made it back just as this huge thunderstorm hit 🙂

Attitude is All

Lately I’ve been obsessing over getting my new Mac… I’m still shopping around for a good deal on one and I’m getting more and more impatient. I still can’t believe how expensive one is.

Woe is Me Tummy

I just had the worst vegetarian food EVER for lunch. My tummy is very unhappy indeed >:(

Sheep do it too

Finally, I can point all the naysayers to empirical evidence that homosexuality is not a man-made or unnatural phenomenon. I was reading yesterday’s papers (Straits Times, 9 March 2004) over dinner this evening and I came across this article about how scientists have found that there are differences in the brains of heterosexual and homosexual […]
