Farewell, Blogspot

Changing the interface & display of my blog has crossed my mind just so many times. Looking at how many others have fanciful wallpapers, techy widgets & just so updated, as compared to my minimalistic blog. At each attempt, there's always a valid excuse to hold the thoughts back, like .. "oh, its late, i should sleep now." / "oh, there's always a tomorrow." ..

Today, I wish to officially announce the retirement of Life Capsule @ Blogspot. Posts being posted since a couple of years back will remain here, except for any new entries.

My migration will take place at LifeCapsule@Tumblr

I chanced upon Tumblr last night during my aimless blog surfing. I kinda like it. And i choose to keep my new bloggie minimalistic & tasteful, and yet just so functional - my style! It allows much customisation too, which took me quite a while to set up just my 'Comments' thread via CSS. Hey, but its all worthwhile and gratifying, to be able to create one's own. Best of all, interface is rather easy to use. Good for IT-handicapped ppl like me.

So yesh! Cya all at Tumblr as i start afresh (",)

No Fit

You Are Midtown

You love so many things, you don't fit into any one label.

Your city girl persona goes to a fancy restaurant one night and a dive bar the next.

Me Girl

You Are 30% Boyish and 70% Girlish

Even if you're not a girl, you're very feminine.

You're in touch with your feelings, and your heart rules you.

A bit of a emotional roller coaster, one moment you're up and the next you're down.

But no matter what, you try to be as cute and perky as possible.

Birdie's Life

I was the very lady most know as Christy; young, restless, a blatant disrespect for rules and commitments, and periodically daring all consequences to catch up to my actions. Centuries have passed, and I haven't quite changed a bit.

It was a time where months were pegged to futile work and frivolous dates, all but a sustenance to fill a void soul. Given an opportunity to return to the past, there's just so many things I wanna make right.

It was in the fall of this evening, I disrespected my Tuesday by heading home early straight after work. On my way home, with the wait at the traffic, while my attention span being so grossly limited with idiotic people kept crossing into my path, my eyes met at this black crow-look-alike creature. Its a birdie, trying to cross the road.

Birdie was hopping senselessly (but fast), and at times i caught it tweaking its head to the left as if its watching out for any oncoming cars. Maybe it was. I constantly reminded myself that its wrong to be wishing Birdie a traffic accident, but I also know that it is a cardinal sin to be wasting a smashing gory scene. I'm sicko, I know.

That aside, at that instance, I have also wondered why Birdie chose to hop, when it could have FLOWN & SOARED across the road & above the cars! NO. Birdie is not a risk-taker. Its really just dumb. We don't call anyone dumb a bird-brain for no reasons.

This blog didn't seem to gel and make sense eh.. but thats me. My life seldom gels and is a layer of contradictions.

But its all satisfying, after all the writing.

Oh.. my younger sis just called from Beijing. Damn.. I miss her soooo much.
