Dear God ......

I know I have been spiteful at times, a little wicked and a bit of an egotistical malfeasant. But, if you get me get a good job somewhere soon, I’ll promise to go an entire day without taking your name in vain, even if I see someone strikingly hot.

If you help me get that bonus this month end, I'll up it to a week.

Dear God, I am so, so very glad that I live in this decade.

I'm also glad I don't have to get married anytime soon, but that's really another topic altogether.

Sincerely yours,


In an attempt to live it up over the weekend, I decided to meet up with the girls and check out this new cafĂ© on M.G Road called Pascucci. (For those of you who aren't familiar with it, Pascucci is a cafe that sells delicious servings of Pasta, Risottos and Yogurt creations and has interiors full of mirrors.) I brought my camera. The coffee was great, and so were these –

After the coffee, we walked down Brigades to do a little shopping. I bought a cute bracelet. And I’ve been in love with it since. Falling in love with junk ornaments is crazy, but JO collectors do it all the time. It might be difficult to explain to someone who doesn’t have feelings for curios such as these, but I know you know what I felt. Cravings! Urge to spend a lot of money even though I knew I shouldn’t! Runa, Ruan and I also visited a store to find that perfect pair of jeans.
Guess which three girls were lucky that day?!

I feel a bit ashamed that I haven’t blogged about Frou Frou yet, I’ve really slept on this track. It’s exactly the kind of in-your-face, extremely catchy indie rock music (often made by artists from London) that I absolutely love. If there’s a song I'd suggest listening to, to get a feel for this band, (consisting of Imogen Heap and Guy Sigsworth) it's not this one. The one I'm playing today is their version of the track “Holding out for hero” – A track originally covered by Bonnie Tyler – is a brisk, lively, ambient-tinged tune with densely layered instrumentation, including some pop percussion thrusting this single forward. The spirited melodies and vocals are an absolute delight which make it a catchy and absolutely insanely infectious song. The track is crazy danceable, features some great new wave synths, but remains completely grounded in indie pop. Alright, now listen to the track below and judge it yourself.
