Happy Me Day!

9.20am I woke up as a newly minted 40-year-old. And every inch of me felt 40 years old. My neck was stiff and my shoulder was aching. My joints were creaking like the hinges of my old cupboard. Please God, don’t let my friend be right! Let today not be the start of my downhill […]

40, Here I come!

IT’s just three days to the big 40. That’s right. I’m finally turning 40. I feel like I’ve been waiting for this day for a long, long time. It’s strange, isn’t it? Unlike some women who simply cannot get their sums right when it comes to their age, I am usually okay about telling the […]

THERE are certain things that a woman will never outgrow: She won’t stop feeling insecure in the presence of younger women; She won’t stop beating about the bush when asked about her age; She won’t stop fretting over her skin, her hair and her nails. She won’t stop buying more clothes, shoes and bags; She won’t stop craving for desserts; […]

Full Monty

You got to watch ‘Fully Monty’ – the maiden show put up by Adrian Pang’s Pangdemonium. It’s hilariou and witty! Though I didn’t expect the cast to go full monty, I admit I had some misgivings about the final scene. I thought it would somewhat be anti-climax. But it was so cleverly executed that it gave the show a well-deserving, explosive ending […]

上个星期刚去了一趟东京。虽然不是第一次去,但还是让我再次感到震撼。天啊!这城市这么会那么拥挤?那么有活力?在东京的首三天, 雨一直下个不停,冷得我脑袋有点痴钝。但他们日本人依然很有升气,提着雨伞、穿着厚厚的外套和长靴,照样逛街,喝茶。相反的,我这个懒人,一直想窝在眠被里,一直窝到十一点才踏出酒店。 这一天,来到了日本年青人的圣地 – 原宿(Harajuku)。走了大概一个小时就觉得太烦了!人和伞实在太多了!搞不好还可能被雨伞刺到眼睛。太可怕了!幸好看到一间气氛不错的咖啡店,赶紧跑进去“避难”。 坐在窗口旁,看着来來往往的人,感觉很奇怪,也很寂莫。觉得自己不属于东京,也不适合东京。我仿佛是个失了魂的人,静静的坐在一旁,看着这个城市讯速的旋转着。 突然觉得很茫然,不知道自己下一步应该这么走。很巧的是,第一次到东京的时候,也同样感到茫然。那是十年前的事了。当时,我刚辞掉报馆的工作, 而且就快到电视台上班。当时,我还不确定自己是否做了正确的决定。虽然这一次到东京不是因为已经辞掉工作,但同样觉得前途茫茫。真受不了自己,都快要四十岁的人了,还为前途烦脑。为何不能take it easy呢? 我的人生就像一块加了过多咖啡和酒精的tiramisu, 苦多过甜,吃了一口会皱眉头!当然,这只是一个比喻。照片里的这块tiramisu,味道不错。虽然不应该吃甜点,但在这种又冷又茫然的情况下,还是忍不住点了一块尝尝。真爽!

FINALLY, it’s down to the final weeks of Supreme Leader’s time with the department. After several false alarms over the past three years, this time it’s for real. The initial disbelief and panic that hit me has now turned into acceptance that it’s time for him to go.  As he rightly puts it, we should be happy that he […]
