My Stalker

I think I have a stalker at work. I was walking back from building #1 a week ago when this little guy with high waisted pants tried to make conversation with me (I've never met him before). As we were exchanging the usual niceties ... how are you blah blah blah ... he suddenly asked me if I go to the gym. Then he's like, and you only go on Tuesdays?

Awkward moment. My jaw dropped to my feet. How tf does he know I got to the gym at lunch and only on Tuesdays??? Thankfully for me, at that very moment, a loser coworker whom I haven't bothered to talk to in ages walks by. Never been so happy to see the guy. We have a normal conversation about the weather whilst allowing me to ditch stalker dude.

OK so I was at the gym again this week for my weekly spin class... and guess what!! I notice stalker dude in my class!! The question now is ... has he been going before this week? HRMMM am I so oblivious as to not have noticed him? HAHA Maybe he really isn't a stalker after all ... and I am just shameless. But then again how do you explain the weird stares I get as he walks by my office :p Ah hah!

Everybody Loves Cupcakes

After stumbling upon Cupcake Bake Shop by Chokylit's blog, I was inspired to make some of my own because they look so darn gorgeous in the photos!

Mine turned out amateur-ish. But they tasted yummy. I guess you can't go wrong with ingredients like cream, sugar, and butter that already taste good. I especially liked the raspberry frosting. It reminded me of the Raspberry Ripple ice cream that I used to love as a kid. The ice cream vendors on Orchard Road in Singapore still sell this wedged between 2 wafers or bread. So good on a hot day!

Oh yes, I should mention that I stupidly forgot to add the eggs to the batter till I was about to fill the cupcake shells. Not sure if that was why my cakes rose and then deflated haha! I also confess to over beating the cream ... oh well.

Me so lonely ...
Prettier Cupcakes

Vanilla cupcakes with raspberry cream frosting ...
The cupcake invasion!

Second Thoughts

We recently hired a person from the said b-school for a position similar to mine (though I'm sure he's earning much more ..hrmm or is he?). I did however hear concerns that he wasn't experienced enough? Gosh what's going on in the job market? This dude has like more experience than I do. Are they looking for people with 15 years on their belts or something? How unfair. In any case it made me a little worried about whether b-school is really going to help me :p

Oh yes and an interview update. Thanks ya'll for the well wishes!!! You guys are the best. I ended up wearing the pant suit because of the weather and a good thing too since my lady interviewer and everyone else was wearing pants. I thought that the interview went alright except for a stupid question I asked at the end *kicks self* arhgk! But we'll see, you never really know with these things. I'll be prepared for the worst... ain't I the perpetual optimist! :)

Disclaimer: If you don't hear any thing more from me about this topic it probably means I've been dinged! Oh well life goes on ... at least I had a good run

MS Homes

Wow, so Martha Stewart has been busy designing homes and boy are they cute! Priced between 200-400k, I am almost ready to move back to North Carolina where these concept homes are. On second thought, I don't think I'll get used to the suburban life. :)

The homes are in Cary, NC. My friend, A from college, used to live there. It's really quite a cute town, quiet and close to all the universities in the area. A house like this in boston would be at least a million moolahs *sob* ...

Awwww this one is right out of a storybook. OK what do they even need a garage for??? It hardly snows in NC :P
