Besides writing my blogs, I also like to organize sprees for overseas websites, it's retail therapy :wink: I help other people to buy things using their money, but when I receive the goods, I feel excited hahaha

I also like to sell my old things online. Many people like to buy second hand stuff in Singapore.

I read Chinese novels, especially those by Yi Shu.

I am crazy about the TV series Heroes and I have watched every episode. When I find a good TV series, American or HK, I will buy the entire series to watch.

I also like to do lots of activities with my kids. I just taught my girl to sew a draw string bag, she is so excited, and I enjoy it very much too. We are also into making roses using air dry clay. Both my girl and I enjoy doing it. It is really a good way to get my mind off work.

I watched a couple of episodes of Fringe (which is a big deal given the last time I watched ANY episodes of anything on Mediacorp was the first 2 seasons of Ally McBeal. I don't quite get it, though. It's like a cross of Millenium (remember that? :) ), X-Files, Numb3rs, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and end up being rojak. No... I really don't get it :?

It's more of a horror drama to me, always gave me goose bumps :shock:

Plot is rather complicated. Don't want what to expect next, keep you guessing all the time :wink:
