i have found new meaning in life. his name is ricoh. and boy is he sexay.


i am nadi; :] at 7:33 PM


the current news stands say, change is good. but what if all of me gets lost with it?

i have 2 days left of my usual routine, after which, i haven't quite pictured what's gonna happen, what im gonna do, what im not gonna do, what im gonna try to do, what i shouldn't even try to do. i have a few options laid out in front of me, but having options doesnt make things easier.

i figured coming out with a list and weighing the pros&cons would be a practical start, but i cant seem to find the space for that that small kick in the butt. the whole process is endearing, and i believe more can be done with a nourished mind, and not that stale thing thats in my head.

contradictory to what my name actually means; nadi : heartbeat, i feel myself being driven down lower to my grave as each day passes. i guess having dreams (or in my case, options) is not as important as having guidance and support. i know there are people out there always watching my back, and i am thankful.

i know the problem lies in me. because im indecisive like that. its different when it a generic matter like say, shopping. you get what you like. 'should i buy this?' is really a rhetorical question if you ask me. but when someone points a gun at you, and leaves flowers at your grave, you really start to wonder if this all made sense in the first place.

im a walking midget emotionally (and sadly physically too), and i cant seem to find the height to stand myself up straight.

i have family and friends that are constantly around, we bicker we fight, we lose them, but they always manage to find their way back.

but, what if if i lose myself, will i find my way back?

this was prob a blast to work on! ripped it off sel's, heres the trail. i think this would be my perfect workspace as budding artist/graphic designer. HAH. bringing technology to life!

4 more days till last day, 11 more till JAPAN!! ah ah aaahhh!

i am nadi; :] at 9:15 PM


todays gotta be one of the bestest day ive had in weeks. no months maybe. i woke up to the rain, and realised, for the first time in a long while, that hey, its raining, and i dont have to wake up! so i went back to bed, and woke up hours later, only to go for my hour and a half massage, which by the way, was prob the worst massage ive ever had, but now i feel fantastic :)

my box of peranakan treasures came, and im so so glad i took all of them.

aa had a garage sale last weekend which tired me out toally. i slept for 14 hrs straight, and woke up with swollen eyes. ok so it could be from too much sleep, but it could also have been from the insect repellent i accidentally sprayed into my eyes.

ok im bored bye.

i was looking through my phone and i just realised my brother snapped a picture of my dad and mum recently at dinner. its not the best picture of them, but i think its cute.

meet my parents :)



i am nadi; :] at 3:37 PM


i have no more words to describe how lazy my colleague is. my manager happens to be on sick leave today, and he's obviously the happiest being in the office. i can sit beside him, walk around, go out to the bank, come back, click clock click clock with my shoes, and still find him in the same sleeping position. its the same thing before and after lunch.

i am nadi; :] at 3:25 PM


its friday :) next week, last! then japan! time seems to move a bit quicker these days.

i feel like getting myself a kit-cat clock for my room so i can throw my bunny at it everytime it mews in the morning.

im waiting for the movie to load. im feeling a bit shitty tonight, i hope i feel better after watching this.

word around is, charlie kaufman is the writer of our time. the movie is 4 years old, (yes, so im a little bit slow), but now is probably a good time for me to watch it.

*edit after

"I already forget how I used to feel about you."

truth is, i really dont want to.

i think i feel shittier now.

i am nadi; :] at 7:53 PM


o.g. being at work is such a chore.


9 more days!

i am nadi; :] at 3:16 PM


ive been collecting all sorts of stationary (notebooks, pens, paper, letter sets, pencils, postcards, etc etc) from back in my poly days, and its grown to quite a collection that now i dont know what to do with it. bought from places that ive visited, some local, some foreign, some were gifts, some were made, some stolen :) but i love them all the same.

p&c is one of my favourite stationary sites online and i thought i'd share it with you.
for paper lovers only!

here are some of my current favs.

i am nadi; :] at 2:07 PM

i wonder if the sky is crying for me.

nat got me thinking a little. firstly, i cant possibly throw a party to mark my last day of work, mainly because well monetarily, its not practical that i throw a party when im officially jobless and still need money for my upcoming trips. secondly, im too busy surfing the net at work and chatting with who and who that i really dont have the time to actually organize a party. and yah, i dont really feel like organizing a party for myself.

so anyway, 15th marks my last day, and its also a saturday! which means, i could prob last till 2am :) instead of inviting people to my party, i'll invite people to party with me! now i just gotta think about where.

ok goodbye.

i am nadi; :] at 11:47 PM


i think ive finally outdone my eyes. ive been surfing non stop since after lunch and im actually feeling nauseous from it. oh fuck.

i am nadi; :] at 6:16 PM


so thats where my guts went.

i am nadi; :] at 6:00 PM


oh hi. this cool! and eco-friendly too!

i am nadi; :] at 5:51 PM


i really wish i could master the art of die cuts and pop-ups.

i am nadi; :] at 5:13 PM


im have very low (or none rather) self-control when it comes to online shopping. but i must, must learn to click away (esp for the next 3 months as i will be jobless), and its oh so heartbreaking :(

such cute stuff which i cant buy right now :( i really almost bought the ring though. i know you could prob get someone to do it for a much lower price locally, but why go through the hassle when u can just clickety click and wait for a bit till it reaches your doorstep.

sigh sigh.

i am nadi; :] at 5:04 PM


ive been looking around (the web) for customized wallpaper services here, but seems like singaporeans aren't too hot about using wallpaper. i know i could probably just send in my artwork to the printers and blow it up mural size, but to have it leaving on the wall, im sure colours will start fading, etc etc etc. so best would be to actually wallpaper my stuff so that i know its really meant for wall use. i came across some sites overseas, but whoa does it cost a lot. guess i'll prob wait till the thime comes to really start searching.

here's one i like from studio nommo though :)

i am nadi; :] at 4:41 PM

i am nadi; :] at 4:21 PM

i am nadi; :] at 4:12 PM

i am nadi; :] at 4:10 PM


GREAT. not only have i missed the helvetica exhibition, i just missed sigur ros live in Tokyo too. and it looked fuckin fantastic.

im actually getting quite irritated that im missing out on all these by such a short time.

i quite like Peter Jensen's Spring 2008 Ready-to-Wear Collection.

mm yummy. i have to get those moccasins!

i think buying shoes really help lighten your mood.

i am nadi; :] at 3:54 PM


i dont normally do this, but here.

Well, you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but your so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks, now I'm tryin to get back
before the cool done run out I'll be givin it my best test
and nothin's gonna stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some


anyway, i realize ive been jamming the drawer at work (where i leave my phone hanging out halfway at the mouth), and its starting to leave marks on my screen. eek.

i think tini has the coolest iphone in the whole wide world. if i had an iphone, i want it to be like hers. i want.

i am nadi; :] at 12:20 PM


oh hi, i had a fantastic weekend :) from great great thai food, to charades, to barbeque, to late night ghost stories, to stayovers, to having bryani with a chef, to shopping shopping shopping and buying great a coat at only $90(!), to having last minute ice cream, and to falling sick all over again. my late weekend nights are not helping, but theyre good fun and i like that they keep me busy.

our dreamer finally came, and now i need more reasons to go out!

i bought this specially for japan. i wanna snap fuji-san with it. thank god it came on time.

next saturday marks my last day of work, and looking at the calendar, its just one weekend away :) i can start counting down from 10 tomorrow! and then +5 for japan! i heard its already a chilly 13 degrees now :/ i really hope i fully fully recover so i can go headbanging and not have to worry about anything there.
