Late Friday madness

Every Fri, I would go to work happy - cos it's Fri! - even though I know that at the end of the day, I would likely be working until quite late, either cos there is work or cos I have no exciting plan.

But yesterday, um, two days ago, I had a great time though I ended late. CY messaged me at 9+ when she left work so we met for a late dinner in J8. I ordered a chicken foldover minus mayo but got one with mayo. I didn't notice and took a bite at one corner before the chap found me, gave me the right one and dumped the wrong fella!

Anyway, that's not the point. We were both so tired but it seemed that laughter (and nonsense) would not desert beaten bodies and minds..

Warning: girls' talk and morbidity ahead..

1) I'll call this human anatomy..

Told her about this 13-year-old who got pregnant and her 16-year-old bf who was likely headed for the boys' home. Imagine, 13 leh! And some 30-year-olds are still virgins! I recalled a conversation with SZ many years back that it was amazing how kids knew how to have sex.. Survival instinct?

Topic veered to our, um, first period, which we recalled with much amusement.. We did have nurses going round the primary schools talking about puberty and distributing pads before that but well they didn't seem to be too effective cos when the inevitable really happened, we were like, "Oh no, what's this? Am I going to DIE?!" :p

CY told me this schoolmate was saying that every time she did standing broad jump, she thought her pad would fly out! That just sent us into fits!!

2) And this could be nothing but morbidity..

Thought of this suddenly some time ago in the bathroom. Maybe cos I've always been paranoid about slipping to my death or worse in the stupid bathroom.

Nowadays, the only contacts we have of friends are (a) mobile, (b) email, and (c) MSN or equivalent, unless you're close enough to have the home number. Then if I were to die suddenly, many people would not know cos I sure as hell could not respond to your beeping! And knowing the mother, she would sooner switch off my mobile.

And CY said a friend cancelled her landline cos no one uses it! There..

So, my dearest friends who have the house number, pls leave a comment in this space if you realise my demise.. I mean, no one reads the obitraries every day right?!

That led to pictures in obitraries. She would take a photo with Mini her dear rabbit and of course I would take one with my Meh. And btw, if I die, pls place Meh next to me.. I'll take her with me to sayang..

Suddenly inspired to come up with a will..

Getting too late and too full of nonsense.. I should sleep.. tired but it was a very happy Sat - will blog when pictures are in.. Happy birthday, CY!! :)

In the red

Big ticket items this year:
body treatments: $2,000
Pinky: $1,000
Kyushu: $2,300

Other big cheques coming up:
Japan, the free-and-easy after Kyushu: $1,500
Insurance and savings plans: $4,200

Total: $11,000

Then the news came: year-end bonus of 2.2 months. Combine that with the 0.5 month in July, and the performance bonus in March, I have a slight deficit.

Think I should review my spending habits for 2007..

body facial treatments: $2,000 *sighs*
Pinky: $1,000 no new phone!
Kyushu Hokkaido: $2,300 $3,000

Total, including insurance and savings plans: $9,200

I'll incur less if I stop having those giant pimples - better start drinking more water!

mf: My pimple hurts..
Na: I have a whole face of them..
mf: Is that painful?
Na: What do you think?!

Gosh.. I honestly didn't realise that the whole face could hurt from pimples! I have hit a high of four now, in the shape of a inverted cross - one giant on the forehead, two by my lips and one new giant on my chin..

Sito: Everyone has a fixed number of pimples; you haven't had many in your teens so they're all coming at you now!

Oh no =(

Btw, White Dragon has deciphered miso correctly! Was surprised when I saw his sms cos I thought the first correct answer would come from a girl.. Come on, girls!

Bye bye and welcome

Very excited cos I just received a new Fujitsu this morning!

Yeah yeah yeah! :)

In the pm when I finally had a bit of time, I thrashed all remaining documents in my old laptop and clicked on "shut down". Suddenly, I felt sad..

Sighs, she has been a good girl =(

Bye bye, my good old girl..

Introducing miso

I realise that I often make up conversations in my head - when I'm commuting, waiting for people, lazing in bed; whenever I'm on my own, whenever I'm bored. I would have a thought on something, then I would respond to that thought; a question would pop into my head, and I would answer it myself.

Think I prefer to talk with myself than simply to myself. Hence I created a twin for mf. Let's call her miso. You may speculate on the meaning but she is not the soup.

The first conversation with my identified other..

mf: The day off diet sounds interesting.. My day off could be Fri or Sat..
miso: You mean once a week you take a day off bingeing to eat healthily for once?
mf: *.*

Expect more of miso..

The halfway mark

In the midst of work, a significant day had come and gone.. It was on 3 Nov 2003 that I started work. Which means I've been working for just over three years now!


So I've served half my bond. THAT, is worthy of mention :)

Back again..

A good half moon has passed since my last entry.. As I mentioned, we have moved into our new office. The boxes were moved the day I last blogged but we didn't actually operate out of the new office until the following Tues pm when the broadband was finally up.. No server yet so we're living on VPN. Troublesome but we'll bear with it willingly - just look at the varieties of food on offer! :p

And within two weeks of indulgence at lunch, I managed to convince myself to do something that I have been procrastinating - jogging in the mornings!

I started last Thurs when I only had to be at work at 930am at a seminar. I kept it up on Sat, and today, I went again and arrived at my workshop before 9am. The timing is perfect. I shall no longer start work at 7+ or 8am every day! I'll jog! :)
