1 hour 18 minutes. That’s how long it took me to run 10km. But I ran all the way, which I’ve never done before. And I even had enough left in me to sprint the last 200m, even though the effort nearly killed me. It’s a good thing I didn’t collapse in an embarrassing [...]
The first song I heard after learning about Michael Jackson’s death was ‘You Are Not Alone’. It made me sad. In the past, I’d watch footage of girls going hysterical, sobbing and fainting while the King of Pop performed and wonder what would happen when he died. I guess now I’ll find out. Except, this [...]
Already running late for work, I got into my car yesterday morning and was hit by the most awful smell. Y had taken my car to a basketball game last night and he’d forgotten his extremely sweaty jersey and socks when he got back. The stinky things had been congealing on the floor of my [...]
He may be the guy behind one of Asian showbiz’s biggest scandals, but going by the ear-splitting enthusiasm of the crowd that had gathered for a glimpse of him, Edison Chen is well and truly forgiven. If he was even in trouble with his teenage fans at all in the first place.

A group of us went to Damansara Uptown for lunch yesterday, a new colleague in tow. Boss had suggested we bring her along and she’d offered to drive. She parked along the Maybank row, up near the petrol station end.
When we got back, her car had been broken into. They’d stolen her stereo, her [...]
Without meaning to, I’ve been establishing a new morning routine. I have a habit of drinking warm water first thing every day – it doesn’t matter if my day starts at 8am or 12pm, I cannot put anything in my stomach until I’ve downed at least a glass of warm water, preferably two or three.
With the Turkish Formula 1 GP underway and the French Open final at 9pm, sporting fever is high in our household. While hubby and I are big F1 fans, it’s the showdown between Roger Federer and Robin Soderling, of course, that’s got us all jittery. As a self-proclaimed Federer die-hard fan – and indeed it [...]
When we were in Beijing, Em asked our tour guide what happened in Tiananmen Square. She gave some ill-informed answer about the protesters not liking Deng Xiaoping’s successor. I say “ill-informed” because I believe maybe, just maybe, she didn’t know the whole truth. How she uses that to justify people being run over by tanks [...]
