Overhearing
Sep 23rd, 2010 by niceyfemme

People here normally talk aloud wherever they are, whether at home or in public place, like us Filipinos. So I was in the MRT yesterday and like usual I can’t help overhearing things they are talking about. Ok, it’s not like I am eavesdropping, I can’t help overhearing what they’re talking about because it’s loud so I’m not embarrassed at all about this heheh….

So I heard these two white females talking about enzyte reviews and the type.  Everyone was looking at them and they didn’t seem to care. I think they’re more of the open minded type. I think it’s great they are true to themselves but they should be careful with the location as respect for the locals who are more conservative than they are.

Chinese Lantern Festival
Sep 22nd, 2010 by niceyfemme

Despite my recent weight gain and my desire to cut down on food intake, a real bad case of serious craving hit me last night. I wanted pineapple fried rice and chicken satay in Chinatown. Exactly the food I used to eat often two years ago with a close friend.

So instead of heading home after some shopping (which is really tiring), I dragged Bee to go to Chinatown instead.

Then these pretty lanterns greeted us outside the MRT station.

Glimpse of what could happen
Sep 22nd, 2010 by niceyfemme

Of what could possibly happen in the future. I have to admit I’m still not comfortable enough to discuss matters about settling down but I am in my mid-twenties already when the idea should be coming in mind a little more often than before. At least I should be able to entertain it.

For someone who never want to be in an unwanted situation, this is a great practice. Other people’s kid, and not ours. After a few hours or after a whole day (the most) we could RETURN the kid to his real parent and our responsibility ends there. If it’s the real thing, then the responsibility never stops. Once a parent, FOREVER a parent. Right Mommy and Daddy? Love you both!

P.S. I’m not in the picture because I first need to reach for the best diet pills. I look like I just gave birth! Bummer. And starting today, I’m not eating rice as counter measure haha.

Butter love
Sep 17th, 2010 by niceyfemme

And then it all began.

All my adult life, I have tried to stay away from what we consider as ‘bad’ things, like drugs, cigarettes and unhealthy but yummy stuff like yes, BUTTER. I’ve heard and read about people raving about it and I have just always tried to deny it, that truth that it taste real good as I don’t want to get hooked with it. It’s better to not start at all, so I don’t have to struggle with trying to stop myself.

However, I am not in a good emotional position these last weeks, so my defense is down. I also happen to live with three men (2 men, 1 little boy) who doesn’t give a damn about what they eat, as long as it is delicious. So I have no power at all to choose what I could eat. (Excuses!)

I discovered this love newfound love of butter because of my liking of cooking pancakes. Xavian happens to love pancakes too.

That’s saying a lot for a little boy who hates eating and only likes to drink.

Oh Daniel Henney
Sep 14th, 2010 by niceyfemme

You make me feel kilig. Why you have to be so perfect? Physically you are perfect and the attitude, wow! Please don’t make me fall for you. I have my Bee already hehehe.

I really have a thing for chinito (chinky eyed) guys. I remember that most of my crushes when I was young were all chinitos. 🙂

His smile is like he is saying, “You know you like me…” Hahhaha

Far better looking than Brad Pitt.

Wow. I just noticed that I’m acting like a tween now. Oh no, you have a bad effect on me Daniel. I have to forget you haha. But I hope to see you in person someday. You seem interesting and I kinda hate Ruffa Gutierrez now. 😉 Jealous much?!

We now have a kid
Sep 8th, 2010 by niceyfemme

My boyfriend of more than four years and I used to look after this cat, Kaka

Now we look after a kid. Meet Xavian.

This is after we went out swimming.

Together with Bee again….

Taking care of him scared me a bit actually. Now I know I am really not ready yet hehehehe….

Room for rent schemes
Sep 4th, 2010 by niceyfemme

Here in Singapore almost everything need to be supported by documents, as in things should be written in black and white as proof. This is how it is with everything that sometimes I feel like they are going to ask for a written agreement that they have allowed you to fart, yes it is to that degree.

The last two weeks has been like a nightmare to say the least. We went through the worst emotions and strong fear for our physical safety. We fell on a man’s trap of him renting out his room but the room lacks privacy from him and the toilet is not flushing and the lavatory is choked up. He knows no one can stay in his place and he designed it to be like that. The modus is he wants us to pay him the advance rental and deposit and it gets forfeited if we move out early. We had no choice but to leave. Bee and I agreed that money can be earned again but whatever danger that could have happened to us if we stayed there especially to me can’t be undone once done. So the hundreds of dollars we paid to that man was never returned to us and we now we know that this is something he has been doing for a long time to have quick money by fooling people.

The second place we rented out was even worst. We had an agreement of minimum stay and how much it will be but he didn’t honor it and asked us to leave after only 11 days when the minimum stay should be one month. Don’t get me wrong, the moment we made our first step in their flat we already wanted to get out but we just didn’t have any choice so we stayed, we could have chosen to go somewhere else if it’s easy to bring all our stuff from one place to another but it is a pain in arse. All the packing and carrying of so many heavy stuff is so hard and it’s harder when the block is an old one and have a lift/elevator that only caters to 3 floors. So if we stay on the 4th floor we have to alight in the 6th floor and walk on the opposite side and go down two floors.

He has so many unreasonable rules. He enters our room when we are not there using his spare key, and that is illegal to do so. He didn’t honor the agreement. Now we are going to report him to HDB so they can blacklist him that will prevent him to rent out to other people and this will save so many people from this guy’s schemes.

Last night when we have packed all our stuff and was just waiting for him to give back our deposit and rental balance, he became  very aggressive and rude and grabbed the agreement/contract and receipt in Bee’s hands that gave Bee some scratches. Because of the assault we just wanted to get the hell out of there, that was the main goal in our mind and just stay away from this uncivilized man. Then around 1:30 a.m he kept on calling us, about the house keys. We told him we are going to give it back to him in the morning but he started to blackmail us. He said he will tell the police that we stole things in his house. Hello! What’s there to take? And they are always in the house, especially him as HE DOESN’T WORK AT ALL! He wants Bee to meet him in the MRT stationto pass the key to him and we disagreed. He is a very violent man and we don’t know what he is capable of doing. We know that if we meet him there, that is his chance of blackmailing us even more, or he may have friends who can do harm to us. So we told him that if he wants to meet, we should meet in the police station, which he doesn’t like. Of course, if you have things to hide you wouldn’t agree to go there. So we told him ok go ahead and make a report and we will meet you there. So we did. We went to the police station and the angry wolf became a scared puppy in front of the police. We told the police about what he has done the night before and about the blackmailing. It really did happen but we have no proof. WE should have recorded it and used it to put his fat arse in jail. The police only let him off with a warning and in the end he apparently wanted to apologize to us. BS. He only wanted to do that to put an act in front of the police. So we left with the intention of reporting him to HDB first thing on Monday.

Please guys in Singapore, be careful with the landlords of the flats you are going to rent out. When we met him we wanted out but we just didn’t have any choice. His address is Ang Mo Kio Ave 6 Blk 633, 04-5133. We are concerned about what he can do after all these things that we asked the police for protection but they can’t give that to any specific person. Some people there mentioned about some cheap life insurance quotes but we had to hurry and leave the area before he comes after us.

And the other one is Blk 10 Kg Kayu a Bob Marley look alike who’s claiming to have a tenant couple we never saw. His unit number I can’t seem to remember (I guess this is my mind’s way of protecting itself from the trauma) but once you view the room and you see that it has a lot of “antique stuff” and looks like a cramped up museum, run away as fast as you can.

Unbelievable our luck right? To have met a number of scheming idiots in a short span of time and two years ago we also met a guy who made subletting a flat  his business so he doesn’t have to work but I know we can move pass this. We have to.

“Ber” months are here
Sep 3rd, 2010 by niceyfemme

And it only means one thing; that Christmas is getting nearer. Non Filipinos must be thinking I am crazy but the moment 1st September comes, we Filipinos start to feel Christmas and start the countdown. Well I myself is getting excited and I am feeling that warm feeling in my heart (no matter how mushy it may seem) at just the thought of Christmas. I love Christmas season, I love it more than I love my birthday. 🙂

I can already hear the Christmas carols in my head and I hope I’m not just crazy. Well I listen to Christmas songs the whole year. It gives me comfort just listening to these songs. How I wish it is Christmas season all year round but then I’m sure we will not appreciate it as well if it’s always here. So just savor the moment when it’s getting nearer, like now.

I guess it’s pretty early to start sending and receiving holiday invitations but we have already received some. Nice feeling that there are people who want to share the holidays with you.

Spotted: Jinkee Pacquiao in Singapore
Sep 3rd, 2010 by niceyfemme

Date: 02 September 2010
Location: Orchard Road

Three hours ago as I was walking out of MRT, I headed to Ion Orchard Mall. Went to the second floor and who did I recognize there?  Jinkee Pacquiao! NOT! She turned out to be her twin sister haha. Oh and her sister is really nice too. She told me nicely that she’s not Jinkee and that Jinkee is inside the store (Bebe). I’ve always known that she has a twin sister but I somehow forget the twins sister’s name. (I googled it once I hit home and her name is Janet Jamora.) So I went my way and left as I was shy with all of them. I’ve always known I can’ty be a paparazzi hehehe….

So I was still roaming inside Ion Mall and after like 30 minutes I heard some loud voices. I automatically looked at where the noise was coming from and it was their group again. The sisters were heading in Yves St. Laurent if I remember it correctly. Then the entourage of men came after them with sooo many shopping bags. They used a cart for some of the bags. For ordinary folks like us, that number of shopping bags must be Christmas gifts, she must giving them as presents. But then Jinkee is not like us normal folks no matter how simple she seems to be. I talked to them as they seem nice and told them the sisters headed to YSL with the beautiful wreaths in the door as they were left behind. The group has nice PR I can say.

After I’m done with my appointment in Wheelock, around 2-3 hours had passed then I headed to Wendy’s and to my surprise someone was staring at me there and I realized it was Jinkee Pacquiao. So I smiled at her and told her that a while ago, I bumped into their group in Bebe and how I mistaken her twin sister to be her. She was nice enough to engage in a conversation and she pointed at her twin who was in Orange Julius. She asked me some questions about me too. And her other sister is really nice, she seem so warm to me. Then I said too bad I didn’t bring my camera then, the sister even suggested to use my celfone. Bummer.

It’s really nice to know that some people are not changed by money drastically, that they still have a hold of humility in them, to even talk to simple folks like me. Who am I anyway? A regular poor girl in her 20’s, while she herself is almost like a celebrity with her being married to the best boxer of this generation… And unbelievably rich too. Wow.

Moving again
Sep 3rd, 2010 by niceyfemme

Yes we are moving again. The third move in two weeks. Hate it. All these trouble are because of people who are suckers for money but only want to have it by fooling people.

I’m waiting for Bee to come home from work and we’ll do the moving again. It’s so hard when you have a lot of things. The good thing is that we are moving somewhere that is closer to work. Just a few MRT stations away. It doesn’t have modern furniture but as long as the landlord is a decent man who keeps his words then we are ok with it. It is unbelievable how hard it is to find someone decent right now.

So good luck to us!

P.S. We are moving to a flat which is only a few minutes walk to MRT, like 5-6 minutes walk only and the best char kway teow (for us with foreign taste buds) is within walking distance! That is the kway teow taste Filipinos love, right Greta dear?
