SPG in the City
About (the lack of) Life and Love in the City

About Me
33 year old Singaporean, female, in a relationship and now living back in Singapore. Have lived in India, the UK and most recently, the US. I still pretend to work during the day, but still spend most of my time surfing the internet and emailing friends around the world.


Reading, eating, dancing, singing (badly and almost always alone), watching lots and lots of telly, and of course, shopping.

Fave Movie
Anything with Colin Firth, Hugh Grant, Clive Owen.... hmm all Brit actors, I wonder why! Current fave - Casino Royale - Daniel Craig was sooo hot in it! Also, Pride and Prejudice - OMG Matthew Macfadyen as Mr Darcy! Closer, Hotel Rwanda, Sin City, Harry Potter movies and of course, the LOTR Trilogy (I like The Two Towers best) and the original Star Wars Trilogy, sans George Lucas' fiddling about!

Fave TV Show
Sex and the City (but of course)
24 - I love Kiefer!
The L Word
Spooks (or MI-5, as it's called in America)
Desperate Housewives
Little Britain
Grey's Anatomy
Project Runway
Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
Ugly Betty
Men in Trees
Brothers and Sisters
Sleeper Cell
... I could go on, but then there wont be enough space

Fave Music
Salsa tops my list.
Duran Duran - Been a fan for ages.

Fave Book
No particular favourite. Love reading trashy books, be it chick lit or Dan Brown/Tom Clancy-type books. Am also a Harry Potter (who isnt?) and Artemis Fowl (by Eoin Colfer) fan.

Currently Reading:
Morality for Beautiful Girls by Alexander McCall Smith

Fave Blogs
Orang Jauh
The Rojaks Daily

Having Nice Hair Makes Me Feel Good

So, I have a new haircut. It's a bob, ala Katie Holmes, you know, long sides, shorter back and bangs. And I'm pretty pleased with it. It's much quicker for me to wash and dry my hair now, it's easier to manage and it looks neater and healthier. Also, it's a hit in the office, I've had quite a number of compliments from my colleagues - both male and female - they like it!

Even my mother likes it - she told my sister that it makes me look younger!

But the LOL moment came this morning when I took a cab to work. I wasnt feeling too sociable, so didnt chat with the cabbie throughout the journey. While paying him, the cabbie, who's an elderly 'pakcik', asked if I was Malay, to which I answered that yes, my mother is.

He then said, "oh you look like an actress".

Tee hee.

So I replied, "actress - yeah, kucing kurap actress!"

He laughed at that and then said, "no, you look like Sofia Jane*, very pretty".

GIGGLE! Now, isnt that a LOL moment!

I look NOTHING like Sofia Jane, but I'm telling you, my haircut must be doing wonders to my face! :-)

Oh, the only person who doesnt like my haircut is the BF. He says he preferred me with longer hair and that he didnt want me to look like a 'generic Cina'!

Tough, the BF will just have to live with my current style for awhile before I grow out my hair, 'cos for once in my life, I actually LIKE my hair! :-D

*Sofia Jane - Malaysian actress
