Back to the +503

December 15th, 2011 No Comments »

This gorgeous picture was taken early morning in Pottyland and it was a beautiful day albeit wintery cooold. The trip over to +503 also concluded my work trips for the year and can I say that I’m quite relieved?

Some wise person once said that Change is constant. Indeed. However, I would also add that too much change results in insanity. Everyone looks for that bit of familarity, even if it’s a whisper of it, just so that you don’t keep finding yourself needing to adjust.. constantly. There’s been a lot of changes happening. Perhaps, way too much. I guess, sometimes, we just need to hang on tight and see where the ride takes us too.

This was probably the coldest winter experience in Portland. I was prepared with layers to pile on and peel off. It was also challenging to run outdoors so I tried my best to squeeze in runs at the hotel gym and managed just two (not ideal) but better than nothing. As all winters, the days are short but for us, our days were long so it was almost all dark and gloom whenever we were out as we were mostly indoors. We tried to keep our spirits up with a few happy dinners and the usual team ramblings.

Enjoy a couple more pictures below the cut!

This sort of looks like the current crazy (IMHO) fad that’s going on right now – planking. Except that his arms aren’t by the side as defined by the term. I still have no idea why people do it -_-

Anyway, it looks like someone is having a face-plant moment or is embarassed about something and is trying to hide his face into a non-existent hole.


Vertically challenged

September 20th, 2011 2 Comments »

This is me half of the time. On my tip-toes, trying to reach for something above me. I used to hate being vertically challenged. I would admire the girls with the long legs that ran all the way up to their armpits and went on forever, the girls that could wear anything and look good in it.

That was then.

I still wished I was slightly taller – 1.65m would have been ideal. But mostly, I’m contented with my height. It’s never been an issue with guys – I’ve dated guys ranging from 1.68m-1.83m tall so heh, guys don’t always necessary go with tall(er) girls. Right now, I’m totally comfortable with my height. I am tiny and get away with almost anything and guys are willing to help me out – nevermind that it comes with quite a bit of (height) teasing, I can shop at the designers’ section for kids (case in point – my Burberry trench is for kids and I saved heaps on it 😛 ), I fit more comfortably into an economy class seat and can curl up for better comfort, my clothes take up less space in a luggage so I can pack and buy more and the list goes on.

And sometimes being short, ain’t such a bad thing afterall!

The couch has become my favorite place in The Studio. It’s just comfy to lounge about it. I guess I’m not the only one 😛 Look who was peeping over the arm-rest.

Stare at your toes

I think stuffed toys were made to make us laugh. I crack up each time I see Pimp in a funny pose that wasn’t placed deliberately. Somehow, he just ‘falls’ into it naturally.

This bugger was found all twisted up in this position one day. I laugh but that’s probably how I am when I sleep and the reason why I wake up with a sprained wrist/arm.

I wished I have his flexibility. I mean, I can do that pose quite easily but I wished that being flexible is something that comes easy to me.

Yoga hasn’t been in our schedule as much as we would like it to be. Lesson learnt – don’t sign up for a package of more than a year. Ours was for 18 months because the cost worked out to be lower per class. Somehow or other, we landed up going for less classes (can’t figure out why) and now it is just a pathetic once a week session. I’m switching yoga studios for the time being. This goal to attend more yoga classes to stay flexible somehow doesn’t work. I just somehow rather .. run.
