it’s a jungle out there!

if i had to admit one thing i struggle with, it’ll definitely be trying to understand why there are people out there who can be so malicious.

of the numerous days of ups and downs in the corporate world, shit happens everywhere, all the time. i must say i had quite a bit of struggle getting used to the way things are, work styles, work ethics and stuff like that. it’s definitely a part of me growing up, and seeing different sides of things, sometimes new, fresh and interesting, and sometimes darker and uglier. things do push you to a corner, to a point where i actually thought how much of my sanity am i willing to compromise for my career?

the thing about being in a big company, is that you get to see so many different types of people, and yes, even though i believe every individual is different, birds of the same feathers do flock together. to that i would say that i do feel like a parrot amongst a bunch of ducks sometimes.weird imagery, but what the heck. it does feel like high school, or college, all over again. the cliques, the wanna-be leaders, the so called “in-crowd” and more. bluntly put, it does feel like a zoo sometimes, with all the noise going around.

people often say being in this industry is highly toxic as people are plastics and highly venomous. as much as i hate to admit that, as the day go by, you start to see more and more of it seeping out through the cracks of insecurities, the nervous laughter and the sly side glances. there are those who think that they are so good at the game that they get away with it, but the truth always prevails, and only someone with just as huge a plank in their eye will not be able to see through that in yours.

its sad and kinda humorous to see how certain people behave as if they are the creme de la creme, and have the right to put things in the right order. no doubt everyone is highly talented and over achieved, i sometimes do wonder when the light goes out, and the music fades, when your mask is removed, how do you fall asleep without your conscious eating you away? i struggle to understand how you could demonstrate such sincerity at once, and with a turn of the back, flood the walls with your blood stained hands.

i never understood how people thrive at making others look bad or putting others down. and sadly it happens all the time. i also never understood how people think they can get away with spreading gossip. sure everyone bitches and vent and rant, but living off gossip, that’s just foolish. and even worse when you think your subject has no clue about it. it’s hilarious how we laugh over it when i get my weekly updates on them. i believe in karma, and im gonna have the biggest smile when it bites a huge-ass hole in your butt.

oh and the boy actually imported some purple peonies for me for my bday, love it!

lizard monitoring with the girls mae and sharon at haji. some things just don’t change, even after 10 years.

dkny spring/summer show was pretty unusual – almost every single one of the models slipped and fell cuz of the slippery runway. poor girls.

meet chloe, the most adorable, loveliest girl i’ve ever met. i love her to bits!

grey goose perfect moments event and mixology session with Dimitri was quite a success! who knew coctails should only be made with fresh fruit juice?!

best buffet lunch in a long time – Rise at Marina Bay Sands. the cheese! and the roast beef! not to mention the desserts. definitely a great reward for running all over chasing after the media during the launch. met great people, guys from yahoo and Sydney Ch7 were hilarious! and breathed the same air as one of the world’s richest man, dr sheldon adelson!

5 months in 64

it’s almost 2 and the club hits is keeping me awake. i know im so gonna regret this when i wake up tomorrow with a huge headache. oh well. so here’s what’s been happening over the past 5 months.. in pictures. because hipstamatic limits you to only taking photos in well lit areas, there is a huge huge lack of party shots. but they were good crazy times, just much less.

becuase there’s so many and its taking forever, perhaps the 2nd half will be kept for another day.

so its been a crazy journey getting all fitted into work, huge ass reality slap about genuineness of people, learning about crack barbies, and making real great friends who are open enough to process your crazy ideas.

tried awesome brunch at Kith, i love love that place and its just a 15min walk away. nothing beats a nice lazy sunday brunch by the river.

german localisation with severin, and the last min road trip to JB! OMG the seafoood!!

yummy smoke salmon and poached eggs at Hatched with mel and lianne. it’s the first time i actually like beer – their berry beer, Rose is nicee..

and yummylicious edelman lohei dinner at Min Jiang. the cereal crayfish is a must have! and who knows peking duck can be served 3 ways?!

i had a really awesome intern, farhana, who has gone back to aussie land. why do all good people go there?! and had tons of fun.

the usual loves, angel, lins, jj, jay and everyone else. esp my dear boy justin.

jackbeats – get down

i’ve thought it through and through, typed several drafts. and yes, it’s back. the paperaeroplanes is back. after god knows how long. there’s just way too much there is to share, way to many interesting things ive seen. especially now that work heavily involves social media. you know as much as you deem Freud insane, the suppression theory/concept holds certain truths.

it’s been 5 months. and things have changed in 5 months. way too much has changed. sometimes so much so that i think where the heck am i in all these. but i thank god for the people who’s stood by me to keep me sane, and keep me grounded. but i’m never ever THAT grounded. the free spirit’s still there.

while i may be dead here for the past few months, i was pretty much alive on twitter. so do follow me there! there is just so much i’ve thought about that is dying to come out. fun, sad, ridiculous, angst, everything. so many stories. and to simply share 5months worth of updates in a post is just insane. but i’ll try.

ive thought about what this blog should be, or what i want it to be. it’s still gonna be random as ever. with little rants here and there, hey we’re only human, but i’d love to share much more about all my loves. for the whole hedonistic over the top parties, fun, and lots of other silly nonsense. and of course fashion. having been in the corporate jungle has very much killed this expression. best quote i’ve heard, and i can’t believe how people can think this is, “you’re too fashionable for corporate work” (can’t remember the exact phrase but it’s the gist of it) mind you i don’t regard myself as anything close to fashionable, neither do i dress that ourageously. i just belive in having personal style. i love fashion, but i make an effort to never ever dress anything close to what you see in lookbook, even though i wish i could. i dont feel myself in my work clothes. im grateful for the person who told me that, for the honesty and sincerity. you don’t get much of that in PR. and till today, everytime i go shopping for work clothes, i’ll never forget this. i’m still baffled by how superficial the corporate world actually is. and they snide the media and the fashion people for being superficial. OH THE IRONY!

i’m pretty sure this is gonna re-surface again when something similar pisses me off at work again. but for now, it’s still quite a big joke to me. and i still believe that a fool judges via the appearance, but sometimes you need to fool others to make them buy into you.

yea that’s another sidetrack. yet again. some things never change. oh yes, i promise, way better, more interesting content. and i do hope this blog grows. i do admire how big some blogs have grown. the likes of Sarah’s loft, soon lee and all. so we’ll see how this takes off.

Stay tuned for a HUGEEE UPDATE!
