Reuse. Reduce. Recycle. Proposal Ring?

A girl came up with a blog to celebrate her marriage. She is happy and jumping for joy thinking that her fiancé loves her.

Having to write this entry saddened my heart. First, there are many naïve girls around. Second, some guys deserve to be shot but instead of being shot, the guys are marrying naïve girls.

Some of my regular readers may find the above mentioned/shown guy familiar, he is actually the same guy mentioned in this entry (For new readers, please do read this entry before proceeding with the rest of this post).

The reasons why this blog is featured in SbR are, (1) a little birdie tipped me off that the bas***d is still a bas***d, (2) this entry serves to remind girls to keep their eyes open and that bas***ds do exist and (3) this can be a crowd-pulling post for SbR.

Let’s begin.

One.

According to a birdie, this Bvlgari proposal ring looks exactly like the one that his ex-fiancée returned to him after they breakup. He REUSED the proposal ring?

Two.

According to the same birdie, this Swarovski crystal bear was given to her when they were together and she returned it back to him after they broke up. HE REUSED the crystal bear (no question mark here). What’s worst? HE came out with a lousy story for the bear.

Three.

After buying all the expensive “gifts” for her, they settled on wedding bands from Poh Heng Jewellery – the most “Stylish jeweler in town”. Why not Bvlgari, Cartier or Tiffany?

I sincerely hope the guy did not reuse the gifts because I couldn’t think of any reason why any guys would want to do that. A friend suggested some reasons which deeply enlightened me.

MCQ: Why would a guy REUSE the same proposal ring?

A. He’s a jerk
B. He’s an idiot
C. He’s a bastard
D. He’s a cheapo
E. He’s worthless
F. ALL OF THE ABOVE                                      (           )

I have a feeling the answer is F. I guess I must be happy that he is a tree hugger. Reuse. Reduce. Recycle.

Her passing is a huge loss to the film and advertising industry. Not just in terms of her capability and creativity as a remarkable film-maker and creative executive director but also in terms of her ability to stir the hearts of many in the most thought-provoking and childlike honesty.

Here’s an earlier (it was so recent!) post about her work that touched my heart.

The Judgmental Object

Everyone kept telling me I seem to have lost some weight. I stepped on the judgmental-weighing-scale and yes indeed. I lost 3 kilograms (no idea how?!) compared to the last time I stepped foot on that evil object. This time I hope he (the judgmental-weighing-scale) is telling me the truth instead of attributing his inaccuracy to his old age.

PS: I am not going crazy just because I talked to the objects in my apartment. 

Simple Heartland delights.

Yet another enchanting and engaging read by Sophie Kinsella. It is the same old “Kinsella’s writing style” that I love! A lighthearted and hilarious read encircling around a ditzy girl who was haunted by her great aunt (who seems to be stuck in the 1920s despite dying at a great age of 105 in the twentieth century). A story which sets you wishing for an endearing, vivacious and spirited great aunt in your life.

My bangs made me look younger but it is also giving me bad skin. URGH.

Love. Skin. Lies. Bees. Life.

‘Did you know there are thirty-two names for love in one of the Eskimo languages?’ August said. ‘And we just have this one. We are so limited, you have to use the same word for loving Rosaleen as you do for loving a Coke with peanuts. Isn’t that a shame we don’t have more ways to say it?’

Teenager convinces airline bosses that he is an aviation tycoon

In a scam that recalls the Steven Spielberg movie, Catch Me If You Can, a teenage boy has tricked British aviation executives into believing that he was a tycoon about to launch his own airline, it has emerged.

– Extracted from Telegraph.co.uk

 

This story reminded me of a friend who claimed to be one of the Facebook’s founders when picking up girls in our local club. He succeeded. Yes. There are stupid and ignorant girls out there. HAHA. I guess he must be really convincing.

All About Juices.

I just got a new book from Borders. It’s all about juicing. They even have star ratings telling you what is good for skin, detox, energy and digestion. Awesome.

Fifteen percent discount.

I’ve got two Borders gift cards valued at $100 each and I’m trying to sell them away at $85 (a 15% discount!). These cards can be used to purchase both regular priced and discounted items! That means it’s a double saving on your side!

borders card

For instance:
If your purchase is regularly priced at $100, you will only be paying these items at $85!

If there is store discount and you are a Borders member, you will enjoy greater savings!

Regular price: $140
Less 20% store discount: $112
Less 10% member’s discount: $100.80
What you will pay: $85.80!

That means you will only pay $85.80 for books valued at $140! So hurry! While stocks last! If you are my friends I can pass them to you personally, alternatively, I can also mail them to SbR readers free of charge if you are interested! So drop me a mail/msg/comment!

Note: These cards are valid for approximately 1 year!

A set of harmless looking numbers.

1040748

This is my employee code number. Looks harmless? HAH. God knows I cannot remember numbers to save my life. Yes, no pun intended. I literally cannot remember numbers such as my mum’s or dad’s mobile phone number to save my life.

Taking into consideration of my inadequacy, God assigned a set of “harmless looking” numbers for easy remembering.

Let me decode this set of numbers and you’ll understand what I’m trying to say.

1040748
10 – 40 – 748
Yi Lin – Si Lin – Qu Si Ba
Yirene – Serene – Go and die

-_-

Whenever I recite this set of numbers in my mind, it’s as though I am placing a curse on my sister and I. Hmph. What a joke. And this is the only way I can effectively remember this set of numbers.

A Fan-tastic Night.
