Silliest Coffee Cup

Doesn't really look like there is anything wrong... right ??

Well.... not until you try to pick up your coffee cup.

You can't.

You can only really grip with handle with two fingers. So its too flimsy to be able to hold properly.

Not with a full cup of coffee anyway.

And don't try to hold it like a mug either. Its way too hot. That little loop handle is too small to even fit your pinky finger inside !

There really should be some written guidelines about design and usability.

Getting there...

For the 3rd day in a row...I woke up by myself ... (no alarms)... at 7.15am today !!!! Whooohoo ~~!!

Which means I also got to the office by 9am.

Ha !

Although .. I still have to work on my time management. I think I must have spent at least 45 mins in the shower this morning. (leaving no time for breakfast). Oh well.... :)

I still don't know the secret behind being able to wake up at 7-ish every morning. It isn't going to bed earlier. Previously, I could go to bed at 10pm and still wake up at 9am. And sleep through all three of my alarms.

I think its more of getting used to the routine of pulling myself out of bed by 7.15am, when my first alarm goes off.

Whatever it is, I think I can enjoy getting up early each morning. :)

Four Weddings...

I have 4 ... F-O-U-R... 4 weddings to attend to in the next 5 months.

Fook ... I'm going to be so broke.

I've also happily accepted the bridesmaid position for 2 out of those 4 upcoming weddings. Which means with the previous 3 times, I'll be putting on a bridesmaid dress for the 5th time. (Starting to get that feeling that everyone around me is getting hitched... )

Due to timing constraints, I managed to con my 2nd Aunty into helping me make my bridesmaid dress for the wedding in September. (The bride-to-be only just passed me the material last week). I doubt I could have found a dressmaker willing to make this in time for the wedding.

The only major catch to this is that my Aunty is in Perth. I'm in Sydney. Which means I wouldn't be able to try it on until the morning I arrive back in Perth. Which also happens to be the day of the wedding.

Since I wont be available for any fittings, my Aunty has to base the dress on one of my previous bridesmaid dresses. Something I wore 2 years ago.

There has been quite a bit of a difference (body mass index-wise) between now and two years ago.

I asked my Aunty to make 'certain areas' slightly bigger... but she said that might ruin the original design of the dress.

So for the next month or so I have to slim back down to what I was two years ago.

Guess I'll be eating salad for the rest of the month..

Fridging Habits

I'm one of those people who has an issue with throwing away food (once I've taken it home). When I insist on eating leftovers, Pete would rather not eat and go downstairs to get a tub of icecream instead. As a result, I have all kinds of leftovers in my fridge at any one time.

I have eaten week-old pizzas and beef stir fried ho-fun and found it tastier than it originally was.

The last hot pot and chicken curry we made lasted for at least 2 weeks.

I never really thought about how long food can last in a refrigerator. If it has mold, then chuck it away... if no mold, then its edible. But apparently according to this article found on - its not always the case.

I think its time to go home to clean out my fridge and chuck away the mayo...

Bad Cough

What started as a bad cough 5 days ago turned to be Pleurisy (according to my doctor).

It actually isn't that bad. Well apart from the stabbing pain I feel on my lower-left back area every time I cough. Oh.. and the yucky yellowish stuff I'm coughing up.

But then again, I have no one else to blame but myself.

I must not go out to drink and party the night away when sick... I must not go out to drink and party the night away when sick... I must not go out to drink and party the night away when sick...
