With Auntie Lilian at her fengshui talk at Suntec!
Now i'm damn convinced tt iphone produces better pics than my silly Sony Ericsson Vivaz o.O" btw, my leechie mum saw this pic n commented tt Auntie Lilian looks v.young for her age o.O
Reached the seminar earlier this year...Auntie Lilian started by covering the flying stars chart for 2011 and then followed by the bazi chart before breaking for lunch...then she covered the 24 mountains and important aspects for each animal sign...leechie has been attending her seminars for a couple of years now...find the format slightly different this year o.O think she has more fengshui items for sale this year too! bot the red ruyi wallet n a mantra scarf...the scarf alone is close to $100 ler...ouchie =.=" Before attending the seminar, fren was telling me tt she aint planning to buy any stuff...but she ended up buying more stuff than me today...lol ;p wanna thank her for keeping me company during the seminar...had fun chatting with her too...gotta thank the internet for connecting ppl with common interests =) btw, my leechie mum was again commenting tt the pricing of the fengshui items sold there at the extragavanza being on the higher end as compared to the usual fengshui shops here o.O
Btw, there was somthg tt i aint too keen to mention much abt...but it seemed like an annual occurrence...i kinda regretted introducing my ex to fengshui...cos i always see him there at Lilian Too's annual fengshui event...what an eyesore -.-" but when i saw him there again this year, i'm v.muchie comforted by what i learnt from Joey Yap abt face reading...well, mr.ex's nose looks soooooo pathetic...tt served as a damn good confirmation tt he can never ever give me what i want in life! B-) n i aint being mean here...i'm juz stating what i learnt from face reading...i also learnt from a higher-being's advice tt i would be better off without him...he even raised doubts abt mr.ex's ability to even afford a 3-room flat -.-"
Rem harn was asking for advice if guys who suggested going to foodcourts for dates r cheapos...here's my leechie response to her posting:
"i have a different view...it really depends on the size of his bank account...if he can more than afford it n yet brings u to a cheapo place every time...then he's plain cheapo...but if he has a mickey mouse bank account n yet wanna bring u to fancy places to dine every time u go out on dates, doubt u'll feel comfy with such a pathetic guy who juz wanna keep up with the jones ;p
dont call me materialistic...i'm purely capitalistic ;p
i'm not high-maintenance btw...it's juz tt everyone's definition of luxury is diff ;p"
Anyway, i have better things to do than to waste my leechie time on unimportant ppl n things =.=" certain ppl r juz plain history...n they better stay there -.-"
"Never long for anyone from the past. There is a reason why they never made it to your future."
No offence to anyone...juz some amusing quotes from Peter:
"women below 20s > gets someone rich and handsome.
women btw 20s - 30s > find someone rich & handsome.
women btw 30s - 40s > find someone rich
women above 40s -> find someone
":) just joking... hehe...
men below 20s > find someone pretty
men btw 20s - 30s > find someone pretty
men btw 30s - 40s > find someone pretty
men abv 40s > find someone pretty"
Navy ppl hav a saying, "it isnt ur fault that you are born poor, but it is ur fault that you have a poor father-in-law"
Hmmm, i'm really single...but dunno y many ppl have the impression tt i'm taken? when i probed further...this is what i was told:
"U r a spontaneous n interesting person. I wouldn't think u r single. Guess the guys r intimidated by ur brains n looks"
What a compliment! Well, it definitely stroked my A380 ego...lol ;p
Some stuck-up salon refused to trim my leechie fringe cos i didnt make an appointment, claiming tt they r alrdy damn packed...an annoyed leechie returned home to trim my fringe myself...it's not exactly perfect but i dare to say tt i can do a far better job than some crappy salons n hairstylists -.-"
Btw, leechie is busy with her spring cleaning project these days...it's an annual affair...juz realized tt i hav caught this hoarders' disease...whereby i like to hoard stuff...even stuff tt i havent use in donkey years...clinging onto stuff with the thinking tt i might hav use for them 1 fine day....this "1 fine day" effect is v.bad! >.< so i'm trying to dump stuff...actually, clearing out stuff can be v.detoxing for both soul n mind...we r actually making space for other more empowering stuff into our lives!!! let's jia you together ya! =)
Leechie is in her midst of enjoying her CNY hols...juz finished half a bottle of 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (couresty of Phillips CFD) paired with cheese tofu n wasabi chips while watching Jackie Chan movie on tv ;p btw, i finally tried out the lovely purple eyeshadow palette tt dear kevin lao shi sent me last year...it's good for smokey eyes =) also tried his eye primer...thumbs up! btw, my new nerdy glasses r making me look kiddy...my uncle's cny wish is for me to grow up faster...forgot to tell him tt when i grow up, i wanna b a leech ;p
"It is never too late to be what you might have been." ~ George Eliot
so when i grow up, i wanna b a leech! ;p
Just fresh from Dave's Quotery, "No one can make the strongest believer in you but yourself."
Amused tt i was stopped in the streets yest n asked if i'm korean o.O"
i forgot to ask...do i look like a korean before or after plastic surgery? ;p
but i dont think i look the least bit korean at all =.="
Some cousins came over to visit us when i wasnt home today...n tt kaypoh leechie mum asked me y my younger cousin look so aged with her dark eye bags...lol...
Wanna wish everyone here a Happy Rabbit Year! HUAT Arh!!! =)
Guess what? my cough was okie after i took red wine last wkend...i'm serious...red wine usually works better than any cough mixture for me! but my dear leechie mum bought me bubble tea from a new shop near our place yest (tt shop was featured in the papers) n i started coughing again!crapz >.<
Leechie is starting to wonder if Singapore is really that small after all...cos it seems that i seem to know at least one guy in Cleo's bachelors for a couple of consecutive years ler o.O"
Damn good quote of the day:
"It's not about who is real to your face, it's about who stays real behind your back."
Some ppl r sooooooooooo damn political tt it's such a waste of their talents not to b in politics instead!!! -.-"
Btw, having a caustic tongue doesnt make one a lemon...otherwise it would b like saying tt every guy who has a moustache is ur dad ya...lol ;p
With the glamorous Jennifer Too!
This pic was only captured at the third attempt...both the earlier 2 pics turned out to b v.blur -.-" think my Sony Ericsson Vivaz is v.sensitive to shaking n any slight movement...n Jennifer was saying tt i shld get an iphone o.O
Well, i would readily admit tt leechie is a Prada fan...ever since i was a teenager...c'mon even the devil wears prada...moreover, i'm only a leechie ;p
The Prada bag tt leechie is planning to carry this coming CNY ;p
My Moschino watch was delivered today...n my leechie mum forgot to inform a leechie =.="
Was quite surprised tt this watch came with a complimentary Moschino clock...lol ;p
Brought my watch over to Bugis area for strap alteration n my leechie mum was pretty amused tt leechie brought along the BIG watch box n all its contents >.< the strap was abit too long for a leechie...the shop owner is soooooooooo nice as to not charge me anything for the alteration service although i didnt buy the watch from him!!! =)

Joey & leechie at Raffles Convention Centre =)
This was the first time tt leechie had attended Joey's annual fengshui talk in sg =) Was late this morn n miz part of his v.informative morning session...my broker saw me at the break n asked y leechie was so late =.=" apparently, he knew kacey from Joey's bazi seminar last yr...sg's a really small place ya o.O" aint amused with how i couldnt see nor hear v.clearly from the back (i was sitting at the v.last row in the room)...so i moved to the seats nearer the front...next to a BIG screen...n tt was when they were giving away books at a mini Q&A...leechie raised her hand n answered a question correctly n received Joey's "Walking The Dragons" book =) also picked up useful tips on face reading too...n for those who enjoy poking fun of my leechie mushroom nose, well, let's hope tt leechie will be the one who will have the last laugh...cos the lady sitting next to me told me tt ladies with my kind of mushroom nose tend to marry richie bizmen ;p btw, leechie likes Joey's BIG nose! lol ;p
When i told the aunties sitting in front of me tt i wanna buy Joey's compass (the one tt came with an instruction booklet) which ran outta stock...so thought of buying his template instead...although i dunno how to use either (leechie cant read too muchie chinese >.<)...n i dont hav a floor plan too...they were v.amused with a leechie n poked fun of me...saying tt i'm v.cute n tt leechie shld go buy a condo apartment on sales at the exhibition booth outside the room first n then i'll have a floor plan n tt she could lend me her paper template to draw on the floor plan...lol ;p she even did a demo to show me how to draw using her paper template which was given out during Joey's previous seminars o.O
Leechie enjoyed Joey's seminar v.muchie n i like Joey's cool sense of humor...although he has the tendency to speak quite fast at times o.O i like how he described liars as those ppl who r "economical with the truth" lol ;p also like how he tried to link the outlook to bazi n face reading...he actually covered alot of stuff n introduced some interesting concepts...more of modern fengshui =) i ordered a copy of his BaZi Day Pillar Forecast Report for 2011...my leechie mum was again v.pleased with Joey tt leechie didnt go back with any fengshui decorative items...lol ;p i also bought tix to his july seminar here...looking forward to it =)
Btw, the v.first time tt leechie met Joey in person was at his "Design Your Destiny" seminar held at MBS last yr (u can read more abt it here: http://leechietheleech.blogspot.com/2010/09/joey-yaps-design-your-destiny-day-1.html ) i didnt have the chance to get his autograph nor take pics with him then...so i'm glad tt he signed my books (i only brought along a small skinny book...decided to leave his other relatively much heavier books at home o.O") n took pics with a leechie on sat =) well, leechie is v.muchie flattered to receive plenty of compliments for the pic taken too...keke ;p btw, i juz saw pics of Joey's KL seminar in which he presented in a brown suit...i know this is gonna sound abit bimbotic...but i actually thought that Joey looks good in brown n earth tones =) Well, i always think tt guys look cuter in pink ;p
Interesting quotes from Joey Yap:
"Meanwhile, contrary to what most feel, Yap feels there is nothing wrong with women using their looks to climb the corporate ladder or get their way.
"To women with good looks, I say congratulations, you have won the first battle. Now make sure you have the content to back it up," said Yap.
"Whether we want to admit it or not, looks are very important. Nobody can see how intelligent you are. People treat you better if you look better," he summed up."
Well, appreciate his honesty to say what many ppl might deny ;p I ♥ what he said...Joey Rocks!!! btw, finally found out Joey's real age...he's coincidentally the same age as Jennifer Too ;p
When a guy looks serious, tt can be v.sexy too...lol ;p
leechie is a brand ;p
Leechie with her CNY RED leechie hair after spending 4 hours at Kim Robinson o.O my leechie hair was cut by their resident cutie stylist...i finally decided to have red highlights on my copper-tone hair after muchie deliberation...n the technician added 2 more streaks of highlights to my leechie hair after my feedback on the color job o.O happy to receive compliments on this new look =) well, could tell tt my cutie stylist aint too patient when he commented tt i already look like some Korean superstar after i told him to trim my leechie fringe to make it look more horizontal =.="
AFTER: Leechie sporting bright red highlights on copper-tone hair
BEFORE: Modelling for Wella hair coloring workshop in Nov last year (with wine hair color n the lower part of my hair looks purplish red)
BEFORE: Leechie after her haircut at Kim Robinson in August last year
Leechie is sporting bright red highlights on copper-tone hair now as compared to dark wine color previously when leechie modelled for Wella hair coloring workshop...do u like my new leechie look? o.O
Btw, juz saw this webby on Angelina Jolie n other celebrities sporting the latest trendy clashing tone-on-tone hair color after i did my red highlights on copper-tone look (http://lifestyle.xin.msn.com/en/beauty-fashion/article.aspx?cp-documentid=4592369) Well, thought tt it's rather strange tt i was the one who actually gave the color technician instructions on what to do to achieve the subtle n contrasting highlights tt i wanted...thought tt they shld b more aware of the latest trends =.=" cos i saw them giving many of their customers the usual blonde highlights on dark brown hair look which i thought look rather passe o.O"

Saw this really good article that i would like to share with all my frenz here =)
How to Increase Your Likeability Without Losing Yourself
By Yangki Christine Akiteng, Love Doctor
I think it's safe to say that we're so interconnected that we need each other to survive. But just how much have we given thought to what this really means? How much do we need others? How much do they need us? Why do we even have relationships?
The times I've had people tell me I am acting like "I don't need anyone/others" or called me the B-word, it's usually because the person feels that they've tried to be nice to me, tried to get my attention, tried to be my friend and basically tried everything but felt ignored, taken for granted, not appreciated etc.
I am not perfect, and sometimes I can come across as "I don't need anyone/others" but that is my "issue' to deal with, if it's even an issue. Sometimes, it's just the other person's "issue" and they need to deal with it.
When we need someone else's approval and validation as a measure of our own worth, we find ourselves constantly comparing ourselves to someone else, obsessed with what we are lacking, what we still need to do, where we've gone wrong/not measured up etc. In most part we're focused on our imperfections, faults, shortcomings, pain, mental anguish, struggles, rejection and all the things that affect our sense of worthiness, self-confidence, attractiveness or likeability.
We are always thinking about what others think about us and whether they like us or not. We get so caught up in everyone else's feelings and thoughts that we forget our own. And because our skills for detecting other's feelings and thoughts about us have been finely honed as a result of many years of practice, we are on a contact quest to favourably influence their feelings and thoughts. We're consumed by the need to "fit in", belong to the "in-crowd" and/or become the most popular person in the room.
And as long as we think and believe that others' feelings and thoughts about us are good, we feel worthy, attractive, liked, loved, wanted, popular etc. But when it looks like someone's feelings and thoughts about us are not favourable, we either go overboard trying to "fix" those feelings and thoughts to favour us or develop feelings of dislike for the person we think/believe "does not like us".
But here is the catch: even though we are acting out of genuine concern for how others feel and trying to make sure they feel liked, valued and wanted, our actions are "selfish" in away because it's something born out of self-preservation and not self-less love.
By constantly trying to make others feel good about themselves (worthy, attractive, likeable, wanted etc.) you are sub-consciously trying to control how the other person feels about you. You're trying to "fix" their feelings and thoughts to your favour by controlling how they think and feel. Many people especially those who are emotionally mature can sense when you're trying to "nice them up" -- a majority are put off by it.
Trying to make others feel good about themselves gives you purpose and sense of doing something valuable with yourself. And even though at times you feel you don't like all the work of trying to "be nice", you do it because it's the only way you know how to get others to reciprocate. When you feel really fed up and stop all the compliments, nice words and actions; the attention, affection and compliments from the other end dry up too.
Now you feel even more rejected, more unappreciated, more take for granted, more unworthy, unattractive, unlikeable, unwanted etc. You start disliking the person you thought liked you. Even worse, you blame all the other "not so nice people" who act like they don't need anyone/others but get all the attention, approval and validation that you feel you rightly deserve. You feel even more unhappy, frustrated and invisible!
For many people in relationships, the toll of trying to fix other people's thoughts and feeling to your favour does catch up with you in that you spend so much time "keeping it together" and very little time creating a relationship based on mutual liking and respect between equals. You feel ignored, unfairly treated, walked on and taken for granted because you feel that however much you give, and whatever you do, you're are still left feeling worthless, unattractive and unwanted.
But this is not the reason you feel invisible, hopeless and helpless, the real reason you feel unhappy, invisible, hopeless, helpless and frustrated is because you've given the power over your thoughts, feelings and actions to someone else. Without them to make you worthy, attractive and wanted, you feel like you are nothing. In fact you feel nothing -- numb, bored, sad, depressed, dead etc. You're nothing, a no-body!
How do you stop yourself from this constant craving for external approval, validation and elevation?
By going back to the basics -- Who are you without the need for anything outside of yourself?
It can take some time for you to discover you really are without anyone or anything to prop you up. In many African cultures, at 12 - 15 years of age, young men and women are sent on a self-quest journey with just water and little food. They are told to constantly hold on to the thought 'Who am I?'. If a negative thought comes to mind, ask oneself "Who said that is who I am?" Many young people are often surprised to find that what most of the things they think they are, are what people have said they are or have projected on them.
For some young people it takes days, other it takes hours but when the young man or woman comes come back, they are asked some very basic questions. If the answers are not satisfactory to the elders, the young person is sent back to "find yourself".
Part of this quest for self is the deepening of one's awareness to one's external environment. The young man or woman is encouraged to use all of their senses yet remain focused and aware of what is inside, underfoot, over the head, all around, as well as what may lie further on because one self is not limited to the physical body but extends and is connected to the universal energy (everyone and everything).
Once he or she finds him/herself, the young man or woman is required to "sacrifice" something that they very much value at that moment they "find yourself". It can be anything like the last bit of water or food they have left (and could be what they need to survive), or an object with deep emotional value such as a bracelet, bead necklace, sandals etc. This is a symbol that you've let go all external attachments because they mean nothing when you have "yourself".
So here are some questions for you.
1. Who are you without your family members, without a Bachelor's of Science and Master's of Science degrees, without a job, without what you've accomplished, without what you think others want you to be etc?.
2. Ask yourself, "If this is who I really am, why don't I have the ease/love/contentment/ belonging/joy/happiness/well being it implies?"
Asking yourself this particular question can lead you to a very painful past -- things that people have said you are or have projected on you.
If feelings of fear, sadness, hurt, and pain surface accept them and embrace them. It's the authentic, neglected, abandoned, rejected, ignored, repressed etc part of you talking to you. If tears come, let them roll, do not try to suppress or stop them. When you are ready they'll stop on their own. If laughter comes don't worry about how you look laughing, just laugh-softly and quietly, hard and loud, whatever comes. If feelings of anger surface, don't try and make them go away by blaming, excusing, or psychoanalyzing why you are angry, and who or what you are angry at. Just acknowledge that you are angry and that it is okay knowing that life isn't always fair, we don't always get what we want, that sometimes bad things happen to good people and sometimes you don't need to know why.
3. Then next thing is to answer the question, "From now forward, I will know I am not thinking, feeling or acting to my truest and deepest self when I am."
Take full responsibility for giving yourself the attention, affection, validation and everything else you want from others when you are trying to "fix" other people's feelings and thoughts to your favour or trying to able. "fit" in, belong to the "in-crowd" and become the most popular person in the room.
Feeling worthy, attractive, likeable, wanted etc. and actually having those inner feelings mirrored back to you by others is all about loving yourself enough to allow others to be who they are. A relationship - any relationship -- is nothing more than a mirror reflecting back to us who we are and where we're at in our life's journey. The mirror can't reflect back to us what isn't there.
Hopefully you'll find yourself; take back the power over your thoughts, feelings and actions; increase your likeability and start commanding attention, affection and respect -- without asking, demanding or begging for it.

Having a check-up , whether through your ...BaZi or through your doctor is merely seeking information. What you DO with the information after you receive it is more important.
