Reality strikes

The curtain is drawn on all the major festivities. Too quick. Or was I in denial. When I returned to office on Wednesday.... reality hit me really bad when I see the endless initiatives... endless proposals calling out to me. I guess with each long  holiday... I could put off some of the important things i need to do. In fact I have not even made my new year's resolution. The biggest thing on my mind really is to stop procrastinating. I want to go for a pre-conception check-up... but been procrastinating for the longest time... There's a fear that something's not right in there.... oh well. Need more support.... esp. from my hubby. That's the other subject of my wish for the year. Dear Hwa...I hope you will learn to work less. Working till 11 + every night.... and working hard at the computer every weekend, does not make you best employee of the year. Your work is not everything and u have to seriously realise that there's more to life than  your work. And when i t…

This is the simplest... and quietest CNY I've ever had in  my 28 years as an earthling. :)No complains though... as that's the way it shud be. Time spent with family is more appreciated. Bro... BBQing for everyone @ reunion din din. Bro & Evie.... Gosh! I look so old w/o make-up

we left the office behind

While the rest of the world had an early release in celebration of the  Lunar New Year.... the entire Strategic Development team trudged up Bukit Tinggi (road), retreated into a cold room and had a supposedly inspirational 4 hours of brainwashing. How to control a situation, take ownership..... reach and endure!  Apparently that's the art of overcoming adversities. While I was really inspired at that point.... now i feel nothing. But it was a good session which I think hwa should go tru... The extended family with some missing people.....Coming out of the cold room.... we went straight into the forest. Monkeys we all were, climbing.... swinging from tree to tree and gliding from point to point over the reservior. Scary it may be... but I was thrilled! I've got a secret phobia of heights. Yes... I never told anyone... and always acted brave. But guess that's the essence of overcoming adversities yah? Hot and sticky.... we headed off the 'THE MADHOUSE" (a pub down…

Goodbye to 2008...

This is a very delayed post.2008 has concluded. I would like to think that 08 has been quite alright for me and my loved ones. I have no idea what 09 brings...with all the market movements, i would rather not hope so much, although...the year started on a very good note. Why? I will not reveal here too soon.... until it is a better time. Obviously am praying that 09 will continue the way it started... Oh well! Every tom, dick and harry is predicting bad stuff for 09. Reading the papers... or watching the news is like getting bashed left right centre. So... best thing now is just be prudent... and not let the world's happenings get the better of us. Not easy?! But... what to do? Life goes on. Anyway... as each year concludes, it's time to take stock on my marriage. 30 dec... our wedding anniversary. 301208 marks the 2nd year of being officially co-habiting, 6 years 3 mths as friends and 5 years 10 mths as a couple. Times are bad... so we can only afford time away on the eastern…
