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

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.
