six and seven

with 19 comments

Benjamin is totally geeking out now.
He is squatting with his laptop on a tiny breakfast-in-bed table,
preparing the scores for his recital next week.
And while he’s doing that, he often does virtual conducting like a psychotic musician.

Quite an amusing sight if you ask me!

And to give him some moral support, I’ve decided to stay up with him.
And what more can I do on a late and quiet night like this one.
So here I am with this Monday night entry.

And as I sit at my desk, sneezing and coughing
& thinking of something to write,
the manual musical boxes on my desk caught my attention.

I really love these little things.
I shall share with you the 3 that are most special to me.

This is the first one I received from Benjamin.

It was written on the box –
“Being near you filled a void in time I sought to find”

Although  I still cannot really figure out what he was trying to tell me,
I thought it has got to be something to do with him being smittened by me.

So, good thing.
And this one plays Music of the Night from Phantom.


This second one came with a cardbox.
But I think I’m a little too rough and it got kinda tattered.
and I decided to just remove it in the end.
This shabby little thing plays La Vie En Rose (Life in Rosy Hues).


The latest addition to the musical boxes family is this pretty thing.
He gave it to me after we had a big fight, and the writings said –
“For all the times you waited & listened…”


And this third one plays Where Do I Begin when wound.
So pretty! :*)



I have been asking him how many more musical boxes he has.
Because he can just give it to me anytime he wants.
All he needs to do is just take them out from a plastic bag in his cupboard.
He said that he has been buying them whenever he sees them.
One fine day, I’m going to raid his cupboard and take them all at one shot.


Some of you might be wondering why Benjamin signed off as “seven” in the first picture.
Oh well, it’s because he claims that he’s seven since I’m six.
And he once told me, “For better for worse, it’s six and seven.”

Here’s a tag he gave me some time back to remind me to love him too.
Because it says “six loves seven” and not “seven loves six”



I know this entry can be a little boring with me harping on & on about Ben.

So to do this entry some justice, I shall put up some info about dog cafes!
I checked out this dog magazine and there are actually a list of dog cafes and dog friendly restaurants listed.
Back then when I was looking for a dog cafe online, I faced some difficulties.
So I thought it will be nice to have the compiled list up on my blog to share with other dog owners.

  13. “For better for worse, it’s six and seven.” <<— this is actually very good …
    does he have more other phrases he can share to help other guys tackle girls…like probably have a “love phrase of the week” thingy or maybe some online love dictionary that guys can go to and find the right things to say to girls…

  14. gal, the engraving is done in tif and co itself.

    fiona, i won’t mind. maybe you can drop me an email?
    sixpegs@gmail.com :)
    thanks for the lobang!

    yi, music of the night music box is from overseas.

    the rest of the questions, let him answer himself.
    talking to him sometimes really irks me!


    May 7, 2009 at 12:50 am

  15. wow so many replies to your post!

    well, for sixpegs readers who are wondering where the engraving was done, you may do it at Tiffany & Co (and wait three working days) or send it direct to their official engraver, who is on Orchard Road itself too! Here’s his address:

    Gift Galleries
    02-23 Cuppage Plaza.

    Some of you may remember seeing their shop on the 2nd floor of Cineleisure last time. They do lots of engraving and stuff for high end silver, pewter, trophies, crystal etc. Pretty reliable quality if you ask me. And Tiffany & Co has been using them for the longest time.

    As for the music boxes, I buy them from everywhere – though the best ones are found overseas sometimes. There’s also a few shops in SG, the locker box shop that rents box shelves out – they do sell mini music boxes as well. Think there’s one in Parkway Basement, one in Marina Square next to Jigsaw World.

    Heh keep a lookout for the next few music boxes I give to Peggy! :p

  16. benjamin, better make sure the music boxes keep coming.

    and to annie, just to keep you informed, i think miumiu has gotten himself a new girlfriend too. and it sources are accurate, they’ve been going out for couple weeks already. so you girls don’t have to feel sorry for him or fear that he might feel lonely. :)

    May 8, 2009 at 5:01 pm

  18. grace, you’re welcome. :)
    hope you and mambo will have fun at those places too!
