Recently I just bought a new single mattress. I had shopped for a bed frame previously and been to companies like Novena, Brighton and so on but the mattresses all seem overpriced to me. Fortunately I came across an online shop selling mattresses! I like the fact that they featured reviews of the mattresses so buyers can know what to expect even when they can't see the mattress before they buy. The site is easy to navigate according to the size of mattress you want and your budget. I had fun shopping online and delivery is free, plus they would help you dispose of your old mattress! I love the service! The delivery guy came on time with a brand new mattress with a plastic covering. I last brought a mattress from a well known brand, and the mattress came with a dusty plastic wrapping, so I am pleasantly surprise by Bed.sg products, I think they must have a very nice warehouse with a quick turnover so things do not really get dusty. The next time you are thinking of buying mattresses, I strongly recommend buying online at http://www.beds.sg
I ought to write about F1 for memory sake. I had bought a fund with Aviva Direct and they had sent me tickets to Friday and Saturday F1 race in the club suite! I went for the Friday event, it was fantastic and so VIP. We were on a second storey overlooking the grand stand. We could choose both outdoor seats or the air-conditioned indoor seats. We had a fantastic view right oppostite the Ferrari paddock area, and there was free flow of hotel style food and wine. WOW!
Well although I didnt get a new blog in the end, I did pick a new blogskin. I guess this kind of signifies a new birth of the blog again. I think my blog is like a Phoenix. I do foresee many more rebirths in the years ahead.
It's been a long time since I wrote. Everytime I stopped writing and then wanted to write, I am so tempted to start a new blog, coz I wish to begin afresh. As much as I wish to disown the past each time, I decided to stay with my history each time and continue with this blog address. Even its name brings back memories. Twirling Penguin was in memory of a favorite icon of mine and my first boyfriend on MSN. It was a very cute icon which I frequently used back then becoz I was so happy just to be with him that I was like spinning for joy.
Sometimes I think the way to my heart could well truly be words – in the written form. I like paragraphs of prose and lyrical descriptions, of nature, love and life. Words have the magical ability to touch me, move me, plead with me and make my senses soar. Draw me into a world where no man walks, gentle in its soothing persuasion, lush in its surrounding landscape. Rabbits and deers at play beside cascading waterfalls, dewdrops adorn luxurious petals of bountiful flowers, a paradise far away from the maddening crowd.
Had lunch with J, S and K today. Was great catching up with J, who just returned to Singapore after a 3 months hiatus. We had fun talking, in a sense there was much more things we could share with each other now that we are ex-colleagues and not colleagues.
I like walking around. Like previously when my office was in river valley. I could walk around to nearly PS which is about a 12 minutes brisk walk. Or I could walk to Orchard and pop in the department stores for a while and hop out again. Or I can walk to Middle Road and buy yummy beancurd tarts at Le Cafe. I enjoy walking a little, to get to my destination. Its like building a momentum. I can think and reflect on life as I walk, or simply enjoy some quiet time to myself watching the world goes past as I carry on walking. There is this gentle juxtaposition between stillness and life when one is in motion. Its like nothing had changed, yet you know you are ahead by a few steps.
I had run out of blusher and was shopping for a new one. Got curious by the Maybelline Blush Studio mousse, and after some procrastination and lingering, I decided to try it. Hey it is now my favorite make up routine to apply this spongy soft mousse to my cheeks. It feels like a butterfly kiss, light, fluttering and caressing. With blush powder, it feels like a broomstick sweeping your cheeks, and I had seen girls furiously puffing the brushes up and down the cheeks to even out the color. But hey, its such a different story with mousse. You apply by softly caressing the cheeks like a lover's gentle caress, softly coaxing the color to come alive in a dance which will end with a flourish. I love it!
I just felt in love again. Places I had fell at first sight included the old church at Cologne, Germany, and the fairy tale castle, Neuschwanstein. Oh and Hallstat too. These are really very unforgettable sites that I had the good chance to visit, and its time to start accumulating dream destinations again.
