How to cut clutter and organise your mess instantly

Sponsored Post

I have a confession to make. I have this horrible fear that I can’t get rid of. It’s so bad, it is even more fearful than being alone in a locked room with several cockroaches. Yet, it’s a fear that I live with on a constant basis. It’s the fear of having to find some document from my mountainous stash of papers.

Post-Its (2)

Seriously, I feel buried in the amount of junk that I have. Yet I can’t really call them junk, for they are necessary documents such as receipts, invoices, insurance contracts and even camera manuals! Can’t throw them away, yet I don’t have an immediate need for the documents.

I was mulling over this problem and praying to god for a solution when the doorbell rang. Whadd’ya know, mysterious package from 3M! Can 3M be the answer to my prayers?

Post-Its (8)

Turned out to be a whole package of 3M Post-it products, many of which I didn’t even know existed! I’m quite familiar with the Post-it sticky notes, I’m sure you are too. But I didn’t know that they had so many types of file flags and tabs, in really attractive neon colours too! They must have also realised that I’m running low on handbags, they sent me a sticky note dispensing handbag!

Wedding Candybar

For a good part of the wedding, I’d been cracking my brains to come up with something creative yet still wedding worthy if you know what I mean. Didn’t really want a live band or singers because seriously, you spend a bomb and people hardly even notice that they’re there. Those who do happen to sit near the stage and I know of people who have complained of the noise!

I wanted something a little whimsical, to sort of make me feel better that I didn’t get to have a garden wedding. A garden wedding is something that is so pretty, and I think most brides would consider it, but to be realistic, most guests hate garden weddings thanks to the Singapore weather! And trust me, as a bride, you don’t want to be worrying about whether it’s going to rain either. I made the decision not to have a garden wedding, but I still wanted to have my cake and eat it.

And that’s when I thought of having a candy bar! It doesn’t seem such a common thing for now, and I hope I’m one of the first few to set the trend going! One of the best parts about preparing for my wedding were the parts where I was researching on candy bars. So many whimsical and eye popping candy bars pictures out there!! With all manner of variations from the types of candy to whether you want biscuits, macarons, cupcakes, canapes and what have you!

COMPANY the musical

*Invited Review*

I watched Company last Friday. It was my 1st time in more than 5 years and I enjoyed being in a theatre again after so long!

Company, if you didn’t already know from my previous post, is a musical comedy based on a book by George Furth with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The original production was nominated for a then-unheard-of and subsequent record-setting fourteen Tony Awards and won six. The Singapore version, adapted slightly to suit our culture, is directed by Hossan Leong.

I won’t go too much into the plot, except to say that the musical revolves around Bobby, a 35 year old Bachelor who can’t seem to settle down. He has 5 couple friends, mostly married, and the musical revolves around each of the couples interaction with Bobby separately. My favourite scene has got to be the “Amy freaking out over her impending wedding with Paul” scene. Amy (acted by Petrina Kow) goes berserk and blurts out a gazillion reasons in bullet train speed why she can’t marry Paul, all in song form! It’s so hilarious and I can’t even begin to imagine how much Petrina must have practised to get all her lines right!

This scene alone is worth the price of the ticket! Oh, and the fact that you can ogle at Peter Ong who plays Bobby, the suave Malaysian with numerous operatic roles to his name. Oh wait, there’s even a “sex scene”…a few gasps were heard for sure. Thanks to my seat, which was 5 rows from the stage, I had great views of all the actors and actresses, although of course I only had my eyes on 1. The Drama Centre isn’t that big, so all seats should command a pretty good view. Oh btw, the set is really lovely looking. There is even a Steinway piano on the set!

If you need to know more about the plot, Wikipedia gives a fairly detailed account. But of course nothing beats watching it up close and personal.
