new hairdo

yipppppeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! feel a load lighter~!!!!!! or maybe not....just ate a pile of fooooood....muhahaha...

guess what guess what?~! I CUT MY HAIR~!!! yup yup yup~! shed all those curls and my nice long tresses for a new look??


well, i was hesitant at first, but i guess since im already cutting it, make it more worth and cut more~! haha..... actually i only told her to cut like 7-8cm....then she just started snipping and snipping and wvvvoooolllllaaaaa~! my hair turned out super short....

for those who cant remember how i looked like......


well, i just picked any pic which showed my long long tresses....but this isnt my maximum length...i think it grew further...haha

well, the hair dresser apparently had a lot of patience and slowly untangled my curls and offered to straighten them for me...and tada~!!! presenting to all my new look....:D
and so i went a little camera whoring..... well, maybe not just a little...i took like 50 pics? muhahaha....

me close up
dont i look so much angelic and so much guai-er? and of cos neater??

"short" update~!

before i make a proper closure to this whole SEP experience, lemme in brief pictures summarize what i have been doing for the past 3 weeks....

first up, my bizarre and comical episode at the toronto airport, where my baggage was over the limit by 2kg and the BA staff made a big hoohah over it, making me repack my bag infront of everyone~! well, i was really left with no choice and like a buffoon, i was re-arranging my long johns and socks in public~! that was hellavu experience man.

but all that ended well and i was off to LONDON~!!!!!! woohooooo....dint do much the first day other than eat and sleep. my mum's friend just showered me with hospitality and finally i felt so at home.

next day...solo trip down to
MANCHESTER~!!!!


yes, travelling alone is not fun...especially when u hafta take 14hours bus journeys to and fro ALONE....haha..but it definitely has its pros and cons~!

everyone, bringing u the manchester united stadium(or rather the shop infront of the stadium) at old trafford~!!

one of the demerit points of travelling alone: no one to help u take pics as and when i like~! and when u find someone to help u take....they do a super lousy job as such....


me with a plain glass building background? he missed out the manchester united~! grrrrr...

anywayz, i went there without planning anything and just walked around....sadly most of the shops were closed...and i cant even get inside the stadium...boohoo...

day 2: Liverpool

sienz knowing that i cant get into the stadium unless there is a match, i dint even bother going to the stadium... so at liverpool, it was basically shopping and just walking around... dint take much pictures thou cos camera low batt...


next up....LEEDS to meet my ah pek~!!!!!! so nice of him to go to the terminal to fetch me~!!!! and even bringing me GROCERY SHOPPING~! muhahaha...their ben and jerry's there only costs 99pence per tub~!! thats like less than S$3~!!

there he introed me to quichan who intro-ed me SANGRIA~!!!! and it was actually not too shabby~! now i know how to make SANGRIA~!!!!!!! and i think its pretty easy.....any takers? haha.... and also the incident of the HAGGIS where no one actually acquired the taste..haha

<<<<>>>>>>

and of cos i was glad that finally finally someone can help me take pictures~!!!!!!! a decent photo for that matter. and i dont even need to plan my itinery. nice fred ah pek just brought me around and went shopping with me....hahaha....


then it was oxford~!!!!!

wow~!! i dint know oxford university was the whole town~!! and when i went to the tourist info, i malu-ed myself. the conversation went something like tat ( although i cant remember the actual words)

me: i want to visit the oxford university
staff: you are already at oxford
me: ya, i wanna go to the university
staff: the whole place is the university.
me: huh?

okies...get the idea? shant continue further. well, at least she was very pleasant and helped clear my doubts. why dint anyone tell me all these before~?!grrrr*roar*

i bought a book and toured the whole place myself while reading and self exploring on foot... pretty impressive university filled with interesting buildings and a colourful history.


and as usual, travelling alone thus alot of da-tou-tie...haha...i think ang mohs find it funny and they keep looking when i take selfshots. make me further malu....

met up with auntie and her daughter there and had scrumptous chinese food at a place called OPIUM DEN?? haha...auntie keep saying the food there is so nice its as if they really put opium in it....it was yummy indeed but a little pricey....47 pounds for just 3 people~!! thats like S$47 per person~!!! and its like 5 dishes only~! how i miss cheap singapore hawker food then....

okie......entry getting alittle too long and draggy.....shall stop here for today...:D:D

Thursday, May 04, 2006

yes, finally found internet~~ i was feeling so incompletely without my internet~

joo is doing alright here in london. well, now im in liverpool to be exact~ my mum's friend has been so full with hospitality that i finally feel at home~ more or less( i still miss my HOME home) .. she bombard me with so much korean food that i cant ask for more~ really touched.:)

i was upgraded to be world traveller plus seat cos my \tv was spoilt~ darn, unlike singapore airlines they dont give free voucher...boohoo....but nevertheless the leg space is so roomy!! muhahaha...

travelling alone aint fun...nobody takes pictures for me.... went to MAN U stadium yesterday but cant really take a nice pic...ask old uncle to take for me after 3 failed attempts, he finally took 1 picture of me WITHOUT the Man U words...boohoo.... i miss u gals....cindy, sara, swep, faster come come~

the stuffs here are so expensive too!! can kill man. bus rides here are ridiculously priced. yesterday i bobian hafta buy the london underground ticket and its freaking costs £3 (=S$9) for a single journey¬!"?¬!"?¬!?" wat the hell? with this i can safely take a comfy cab in singapore~~
but if u search hard enough, there are real cheap stuffs.

my feet hurts from too much walking.....pain pain pain.....boohoo....but i shall enjoy my rest of the trip~ although most of the time is spent on buses and buses. i seriously wonder why i even bought so many tickets to so faraway land.....
