Happy New Year everyone!

2011 is here already.. this year.. i didn't put up my new year resolution. I took the last week off and was just relaxing, started a certain Final Fantasy game ahahah... and was visited by Yein Shiang here in Singapore.

Just came back from Clarke Quay after enjoying the fantastic fireworks display in Marina Bay Sands. (there was some lady gaga, who is a lady boy performing in Clarke Quay ahahha)

Very tired now after organising bbq for 20 plus persons, too busy cooking. Should have started earlier and limite the number of invitees. Too tiring and frantic.

Ok lah... too tired to type more... see you guys next time!

Take a deep breathe and dive in.

Ara suddenyl I see Hao Shen post something on the chatbox!?

Back from Sibu/Kuching trip for Mark's wedding. Nice meet up, but spend too much time discussing "sam si" lol... not a very adventurous/active trip but it was nice to meet up with everyone again. One of the highlights must be seeing Fung jumping up and down in excitment meeting us in the airport... and the beautiful sky that evening.

Wedding was nice... suddenly felt like everyone's grown up... but, I've definitely become much less sentimental loh..Just thinking of the present, and a bit of the future.

And I will always remember the first time I felt cold in Malaysia in my life (not in the mountains/hills.. it was next to the river in Kuching!).. it was raining that night, and after 1.30 a.m. me and Mark walk down to get some instant noodles (the night before we leave). When the wind blew, I actualyl shivered and felt cold! So unusual, but nice!

Lots to type and too lazy to post pics as usual. Work lately has been quite stressful, partly my own undoing also lah, but boss hasn't been too kind... everyone's always too busy at site.

Shame I got too much to do and have to leave in December... sometimes the work makes me feel like I'm glad I'll be leaving in December but there's so much I'll be leaving behind here......

There, an update!

May post

Sunday, 2 May 2010

Hello all,

I'm back again after such a long absence. So here I am again, typing away in my little room in Reading while snacking on smoked salmon trimmings garnished with lemon juice.

Anyways, it does appear that many events will take place on May 6th... just one more week... decision on project, election, one of my friend getting his interview....

Tomorrow is bank holiday so I can afford to just chill and relax a bit.. not particularly feeling well. Too much wine? Which reminds me I have utterly failed in my efforts to finish taht bloody bottle of wine. Aiya, i should start slower I guess.

In any case, I'm enjoying my prawn noodles ^^, finally got time to cook them (well it doesn't take that long considering the sauce is ready made) with prawns and meat and taugeh!

I need to get back to my bodybuilding regime... my hard gained weight.... I must get to 60 before year end! Sometimes I'm amazed by my ability not to be fazed by the bigger problem (potentially)... I think it's just my natural instinct to ignore lol

One last thing I'll like to add is, life sometimes throw suprises at you when least expected... and when it rains, it pours.

Oh ya, all the best to Wai Loon hahaha.

So it seems I survived the first round... what is to come remains to be seen. How many more rounds to go?

Spring is here finally! FLowers are blooming, birds are chirping, normal sunlight hours..... It seems like April is the actualy month spring begins!

good bye laptop!

Friday, 19 March 2010

Tonight, I shall bid my good ol' trusty Toshiba laptop goodbye. This is the last post from my laptop!

I'm going to return it to my dad. After using for 4 1/2 years.. it's time to say good bye lol!

Did my final year project on it...

Cursed it for being so slow for the past 2-3 years.

Played so much Dota on it.. completed FF8 on it... Almost finished FF7 (LOL) on it...

It's time to move on.

Hmm today, I organised a dinner for my work friends I'm closer with. The usual a dinner. Again, I feel indebted/ bad for like... not "taking care" of everyone.. but what can I do right, so many people and they all don't really know each other.. fortunately they have their own little groups so it's not so bad. Then after dinner, I wanted to go have some drinks with Jessie, Logan and Rachel but... FORGOT MY ID. As a result we all just went home early without.. getting any drinks at all.

Aih.. I should have just gone home earlier with the rest, then I wouldn't have spoilt their night. Anyways, nuff of moaning, I've not blogged for ages. Still waiting for my bloody kettle plug, i'm gonna buy it somehow tomorrow, somewhere SOMEHOW! Gotta go town early to get it.

Yes.... gotta do that.. then tmrw night, gotta go out with Jess and the lot and make up for tonight.
Sunday is another..... working day... ahhaha not litereally working but... well stuff i'll need to do.

Hello, another short update.

Had a terribly busy and somewhat stressful long week, travelled so much in the SE England region thanks to some train cancellation (gotta remind myself to get reimbursement), slept for 8 hours-ish for two consecutive nights and still wake up feeling tired, very happy with my new rice cooker, still experimenting with my phone, still no time to buy computer.

Weather is still hovering near zero, average about 3-4 degree celcius everyday, more sunshine now, but still not getting/seeing enough of it.

Need to decide what to cook and do my grocery shopping later and then..........

Money Matters Pt. 2

Tuesday, 26 January 2010

I would have probably blogged this before but traveling in the UK is very costly. Sometimes, when I think about it I shouldn't agonise so much when deciding what to buy or when shopping and just travel less.

Oh I just realised I got paid overtime for December. That is a pleasant suprise, and I'm not complaining. Not that it's a big amount but hey, it's still money.

Oh I was recently told to start on a new project. Starting this Thursday and next few days will be very busy.

Up till now I have managed to get up at 6 everyday (well this week, get off the bed at 6.30) and I'm proud of that. Tmrw will be another long day, no time for gym again. Funny now that my gym payment finally got sorted I don't have time to go to gym.

Another thing, I really need a rice cooker. Burnt my rice again today lol

Money matters

Tuesday, 19 January 2010

Hmm, I feel like I've been /will be spending a lot. Got a new phone contract, and wasted 5 quid on a wrong cable which I hope to have it returned on Thursday (chances are pretty slim, the receipt seems pretty dodgy and it's not a modern Western shop).

And then, there'll be my new desktop. Yes, I've decided to buy a new desktop because my laptop is soon dying on me. (Funny enough it's working fine today.... hmm which again makes me rethink my need for a new computer) I need to find time to start checking the prices online etc whislt the "sales" are still on.

Oh, lastly, I think I'm not gonna get any overtime pay for the next three months at least. The joy! (there's also this pay freeze... T__T)

Time to tighten my belt and eat only white rice.

Life and Death

Monday, 18 January 2010

Just read a friend's blog where he mentioned he just found out one of his friends took her own life. Shocking isn't it?

Which reminded me of a similar case, I just found out recently another one of my primary school friend died a few years ago in a car accident.

Life is so unpredictable sometimes.


New Discovery

Sunday, 17 January 2010

I just discovered a asian food store in Town centre today! I was just wandering around, trying to get to argos to get my new rice cooker when I found it! I'ts in Broad Street mall, and although it's small it's got instant noodles and quite a good stock of chinese cooking ingredients! Woohoo! Now I don't have to go that far to get instant noodles! Hopefully they will expand and have a fresh vegetable section... I didn't see any kang kung there =(

Woke up at 4 this morning and feel down ever since. Is this homesick or is it just slightly depressed over the bloody grey weather outside ever since I've arrived in the UK?

Even the snow is not cheering me up.
