Down the Rabbit Hole in the Rabbit Year

I'm not much of a planner when it comes to writing and I usually do not plan what to write about in my blog like a magazine. People always ask me how the hell did I come up with a few posts a week and all I gave them was a "smile". On some days, ideas just flowed like a smooth stream but some days like today, the tap was dry! I did have in mind a couple of posts but I kinda feel that today is not the day to write about food nor alcohol. Probably I had too much to drink for the past few days and now I am a little phobic looking at the bottles. I shall leave them for another day.



Life is a like a messy bookshelf...
you might never get to read the same book twice.


-eiling-


Life had been pretty much chaotic in so many ways. Workload was getting heavy - the usual increase in targets and expectation every year is no surprise. This also translates to more traveling to have a closer monitoring of outlets to avoid out of stock situations. The chaos is some of these travels has to jive with my boss's schedule and if he had not given me his itinerary, I'll still be running like a headless chicken. By the time he confirm his plans, I might have to travel 3-4 countries back to back! No complains though as I still love to fly.

Have not been making much progress on the love life. I think it pretty much doesn't exist now with my new job. How am I going to start a relationship if I don't have time to meet new friends, spend time with each other, or dislike having to go through the hassle to inform the bf that I have to fly here today and there the next day?!! And just as when you think you could fall in love again, hope is taken away and dreams are washed away. Arrghhh... too chaotic already! Friends are embarking on a "Find-Eiling-a-Bf Campaign" and hopefully they can find me some dates!

My other chaos also includes financial concerns where you're trying your best not to spend above your means but the major problem now is that one of the new spending is to serve that house loan. It's going to start very soon and you might just see me eating the free crackers and drinking the free beverages from the office for lunch! Ok lah, this is very sarcastic already but I guess I do need to cut down on some expenses.

Aiyah so young already got so many problems. I wonder whether would life get any better than this?!! Actually I'm not pessimistic because with the "wonderful" government that we have, I'm sure days won't get any brighter than yesterday.

Wow... The tap is dry but managed to churn out 5 paragraphs of crap and a cool quote - not bad huh?!!

not surprising. you are too high maintenance, that is why you can't find a bf. no man can live up to your expectations and you have the air of that rich untouchability. tell us how can a man approach you if he doesn't share your taste for fine dining, fine wine and everything fine? i am not saying that you cannot slum it with the rest of us but i cant see the man of your life being anything less than that you class as fine.

i feel u...i am overwhelmed myself with problems, challenges and surprises that comes all at once...but that's life...

if there is no problems, then life itself would not be interesting..

TheGunner said...

Haha.... Haven't read your blog in a couple of weeks, but that's a nice quote!

KY said...

speed dating then perhaps? :D

Emily Yee said...

blogwalking and found out ur blog... very nice layout... clean and tidy navigation... :) your thinking sounds familiar to me, especially about dating... hehe... why worry tho?

eiling lim said...

Anon: How could anyone lives without a preference or interest in anything? I agree that I love the finer things in life but I also live in reality - I know what I can afford and what I couldn't. So if a guy has no confidence or doesn't even want to give girls like me a chance, then too bad.

Li wei: aiyoh at least you have one less chaos then me. Grass is always greener on the other side.

The Gunner: I know la.. you so busy!

KY: I rather spend on clothes than pay for speed dating.

Emily: Thanks for dropping by. Haha.. i guess we are not only the ones with the same problem.

i am not talking about you and ur preceived reality (stop being so defensive) and i refering to the guy-to-be and how he has to meet your standards.

your standard is something most common M'sian guys can't meet. that is why the "datin" title killed your love life. back in 2007/08, you were seems more approachable, now you changed a lot, it is like another more sophisticated demanding eiling that emerged. good or bad, only u can tell.

Wai Lun said...

Dating somehow has to take a secondary position and it's normal to feel lost in the midst of career building. I have a mutual friend who knows you and he always say you have an interesting character so meeting guys shouldn't be a problem. It's more like meeting the RIGHT guy. While the perceived idea of you in the blogosphere is that you are the 'high maintenance' type but I think it is perfectly alright to have a taste for fine things in life as long as you live within your means otherwise there is no meaning in life. Carry on and live life the way you chart it out to be. Don't forget to drop a few interesting lines on your blog for us to read though!!

well, Anon #1, isnt this her objective? - to be perceived as someone with a class and taste higher than most...?

Anonymous said...

Given your expectation, you are almost certain to end up with a much older man or farang.

ONG is an alternative especially on your business trips.

suituapui said...

Reminds me of a song: "Making love out of nothing at all". LOL!!!

TheGunner said...

Don't say like that la. One day come out for drinks. On me.

YilingL said...

Guess I won't get ang pao from you anytime soon? :-p

dIRtyKhian said...

Wow, apparently you're in a hot seat with all the drama going in here. :)
Anyway, there's this saying which goes by "Things come to those who less expects" and for your case, it would be "The Right Person". Be patient, and Yiling should too, if she wants her angpao. :P

Anon 10:04: If I'm not wrong, your first comment was talking about me. Can you scroll up and read again? It was all "YOU" cos if it's not meant for me, it should be states as "one or her". My perceived reality? You mean that was dreaming when i buy the things I mentioned in my blog? The bag, the shoes, the wines were just in my perceived reality? I don't know what you're trying to prove here but I can tell you that I am still approachable and I improved on my knowledge and that's why i am able to write better. just because ones like fine things doesn't mean that person cannot be friendly. you got your equation wrong.

Wai Lun: Thanks and I think your comment is fair given the fact that you don't know me. If a guy purely judge me based on what I write in the blogs, I think that's rather silly. Thanks for the word of encouragement and hopefully I still have energy to continue posting.

anon 11:25: To be perceived... hmm I think I had enough of this word. I must have been still dreaming. I'll really need to wake up.

Anon 11:40: Wow you can predict the future? Thanks for the free consultation.

STP: Haven't heard of such song! hhaha

The Gunner: Good this is written agreement>I shall extort my free drinks! thanks!

Yiling: i wait for yours first.

Khian: Thanks dear for the wise words. I am sure that things will happen when one least expects it. I am still living life to the full. Who knows that I might never see tomorrow!

TheGunner said...

Say until extort so 'lan teng'.... offer already la, my dear.

Let's find time in the next couple of weeks. See you soon.

eiling lim said...

The Gunner: Ok ok!

ask your frens why they call you datin? ask yourself why you and your ex broke up, why he cannot understand or accept the changed you ?

perhaps once upon a time your were approachable. now unless the guy drives an Audi T3, world class traveller or have the wallet to indulge you, men are afraid of you.

but u shouldn't worry so much abt being single for too long, u obviously have many frens in $$ places.

Believe few men in your generation meet your expectation. Those few men that meet your expectation have better choice.

Ignore all those detractors! Enjoy your life to the fullest. If I am your age, I would do so in a heartbeat. Drink more, Eat more and Smoke more. Don't let other ppl bend you to their whims. If a man can't accept you for who you are, then he is not the one for you.

Anon 11:20: i believe you're the same anon that left the 1st comment. Well, if you're a man and you knew that you're losing in an arguement, I believe you should learn the art of silence. Wise man say something because they have something to say and fools say something because they have to say something. And oh btw, only 1 friend calls me by the name "datin" and I do not need to explain why I broke up. But thanks for wasting your precious time reading and commenting. You people rock otherwise my boring life.

Anon: Haha... thanks for the insult! Oouch.. maybe i should dig a hole and start burying my head but nah.. thanks for reading and sorry to hear that you have nothing better to do than to drop me a comment.

St3ven: I love your last line. that's exactly how I felt and I said to myself, if I can't find the right one, i'll prefer to be by myself. Thanks for the words of encouragement.

Reality hurts; happier and easier for you to indulge and get drunk in your vast collection of vodka and whisky.

Ahem! I will give you two pieces of advice.
a. pretty girls always find it difficult to find their other halves. And it is partly peer pressure. "aiyo, eiling how come you choose him?" or "this one? far from your par" etc etc. Try not to publicise your 'other half' too early. use your own observations and judgements

b. look outside Malaysia lor. The pool is bigger out there, so are the chances of looking for one that match your style.

hehehehe, good luck leng leng.

Never seen Eiling posted photo with her ex bf especially on holiday. This may be a reason contributed to their separation.

eiling lim said...

anon 1120: I'm happy I did and likewise. Thanks!

Anon 1141: Yeah I think it'll be a perfect plan. Want to join me?

kk: Aiyoh my dear, you knew very well looks wasn't my dig. Thanks for the wise words once again. Hope you're not so busy with work. Buzz me the next time you're in KL again!

Anon 1001: I think I did a wise thing not to post any pictures of my ex or else I'll get him into trouble with the current gf.

Anonymous said...

this anon could be one of your 'pursuer'..? maybe u didnt show interest now he's not happy. hahah.. ok, just saying......

eiling lim said...

anon 307: I don't think these anons are interested in a woman like me. haha...

Winnie said...

hi ei ling, i don't know you personally, but from what i read in your posts, i think that you are a confident lady and knows what you want in life... and to me, that is good... you are right, no need to be bothered about how others perceive you... your real friends know who you are... and that's what matters... you're a young attractive lady, and with your social life, i don't think it's a problem meeting your potential bf... be true to yourself and enjoy life how you intend it to be : )

If there's give in the stakes or the form, neither of them are doing their jobs correctly. concrete finishing is very much like smoothing out frosting on a birthday cake. * Not Ideal For Floors: While this is a great option for the walls, it's a less-than-impressive option for the

There are a few types, mainly fine, regular, or rough. 3  Coconut oil:
To have a beautiful, shiny hair and stimulate hair growth, give yourself a scalp massage with warm coconut oil
once a week. It soothes scalp region and make hair dark and lustrous.
Even though all the hair was thoroughly coated and it
was always rinsed so well that no traces were left, little by little the kids
escaped our weekly ritual and I found it easier to not chase them about it, especially considering the hundreds of other matters which
did need to be chased. Goodness of traditional herbs work wonders for colored, straightened and chemically treated hair.
