My friend, Julie

Julie & I
Julie & I
I'd like to talk about my friend, Julie. We both went to the same dance college way back in the previous century. Julie is a little younger than me but she's always looked after me as if she's older and indeed, she always seems more mature than me.

December - A tale to be told

A whole month seemed to be long but days pass by so quickly and before I know it, a week is gone. The break gives me time to catch up on stuff that I always don't seem to find time to do.

Of poos, pukes and kids.

My nephews, Benjamin and Jason came to stay for a few days when their parents went to Penang. Ben is 10 and Jay is 7. This is the first time they were staying over. Many years ago, when Ben was about 4, we (his mum and I) psyched him up for a sleepover but it was a disaster because mum forgot his 'sayang pillow'. So this time, 'Tai Yee' (that's me), reminded mum not to forget essentials like that. Tai Yee means eldest aunt. So. on Sunday the boys came over, armed with Jason's 'sayang blanket'. Ben has already outgrown his 'sayang' stage, thank God. After the goodbyes, the boys settled down to enjoy Spykids 3D, complete with 3D glasses. When the movie ended we settled into a game of checkers, something which I had not played for years. Jason and I were having a terrific game when he suddenly made himself a 'king' twice over, meaning a double king which he claims can fly anywhere and 'eat' any pieces. I began to protest. I have never heard of such rules. Ben was rolling on the floor laughing wickedly. Then, I began to see light. Ben must have invented that rule to win some games with his brother. Poor Jay!

Gamer I am ......................NOT

I was first introduced to computer/electronic games when I got my 1st computer, way back in 1993. I remember playing Wolfenstien 3D one Chinese New Year till I puked, literally. I think it had something to do with my movements not being smooth. I spent hours on Alone in the Dark too and even finished the game, which was, to me an achievement then because I was, er, groping in the dark, being such a novice.
But my real game conversion was when Julian introduced me to the world of Nintendo.

Mum

Mum have been driving for years but on one occasion, during one of our family gathering, she asked us what the 2 side mirrors are for and that she's never used it before in all her 30 odd years of driving. Dad looked at her incredulously
