I'm a simple girl with a li'l dream, of seeing her humble works in exquisite print, to share with all who feels for words, written with
an unsupressable urge. So indugle in my fantasies, and plow your way through my memories, greatly appreciated you will be,
if you can leave your comments here for me.

If men who are in touch with their feminine side are called Sensitive New Age Guys (SNAG), I should be a self-proclaimed SNAB - Sensual New Age Babe, a woman who's in touch with her "masculine" side.

My friends have always teased me for being "unfeminine". Guys are always surprised when I told them that I do not like shopping. They've always thought that shopping is every girl's national hobby.

I've only just started taking a bit more time to shop for clothes and accessories recently, and that's because my new job requires that I dress up a bit more. Otherwise, I usually shop like a guy. I know what I want to buy, I head straight for the place, I buy it and out I go. Window shopping is quite a waste of time, I feel.

I get excited about electronic gadgets, books and CDs but tune out when my girl friends start chatting about cosmetics, shoes and handbags. I don't have a sweet tooth like most girls do, so I don't go gaga over chocolates and desserts. Many of my male friends are baffled by this 'phenomenon' and my girl friends, well - they have already resigned themselves to the fact that I am a lousy shopping kaki. Haha....

Recently I am hooked on an equally 'guy' hobby - Paper Craft. Check out these wonderful vintage cars that you can make out of paper. I am currently working on a VW Minivan and a classic Mini Cooper. You can download them from Papercar.net.

Too easy? Try these super cool Yamaha motorbikes papercraft.

For the girls, maybe this would tickle you - an iPOD Mini paper craft. How cool is that? Make one for your friends - just for laughs! :P

It's no wonder my buddies think that I am really not a girl - inside. I cannot help it if I do not like girlie stuff. But I am 100%, absolutely, definitely, really a girl. :)

Elvina aka LaoNiang said...

Really? Haha... how many SNABs do you know?

Richard said...

SNABs are not that uncommon in the sciences and engineering disciplines.

Couldn't find any paper cars on papercar.net. However, I will try my hand at the motorcycles. My son will get a kick out of it.

You might want to try this paper dragon that keeps looking at you (I've made this one and it works).

Wow...... you are my dream gal!

I hate it to shop w girlfriends but got to pretend interested.

And the worst thing that can happen is...... she will ask me: This dress nice or not?. I say: Nice! She will reply: I better dont buy it, I dont trust your taste!

Haiz..... women! Cant live with them, cant live without them.

This is what a woman wants.

Very fussy towards men.

Looks like we men better get prepared, or else, they are going to rule over us.

Can't live with them?
That's good, they only suck out your money and run away.

Can't live without them?
No, unless you want a child or more.

Do you have enough of shoes and bags? I think women are both bagaholics and shoe-holics. They can never have enough of both. My wife changes her bags and shoes once every 1 to 2 months.

SNAGs? They just crack me up….well, most of them anyway.

Glad to see u got a new hobby. Cheap one somemore. Heh. Take it easy. Hope u got my last email.

That's because you have too much male hormones, testosterone. (Serious leh! Everybody have BOTH male and female hormones. Just that in man, male hormones exist in higher concentration than female hormones, and vice versa). Your interest in guy stuff plus your ability to interact with guys more than with gals shows that you have a higher concentration of testosterone, compared to the average woman. Most such women also have higher sex drive than typical woman (because in BOTH sexes, it is the male hormones that governs sex drive) and also have less regular period compared to their average female friends (because testosterone interferes with the monthly cycle). Heee... you are revealing too much about yourself without knowing it :)
