Weddings...

Image
4 down, 6 more to go. This is not including those I have to attend with Hwa. Everyone’s getting married, which means we are all getting old. Haha! Last Sunday's was at Shangri-La. The invite stated dresscode: Formal. I looked at it and pondered for quite a while. I was unable to make out what formal really meant. Din want to turn up neither under-dressed nor overdressed. It didn’t help when I wasn’t feeling sociable last evening. Anyways… appeared in a green and white ensemble. Not too casual… but good enough for a wedding I thought. But alas… just like what I feared… I was underdressed. People were in gowns and bow-ties! **Faintzz** Good thing, the rest of the peops at my table were underdressed too! So din feel all that awkward after all. It has been some time since I met up with the ACJC council people. While in school, I was one of the quieter ones (I think I was! hahah), and I never really liked to hang around the rest of the council people. In fact I try to avoid them. Just h

The day started at 7.30am, where I made my way to the ICA building to collect my new biometric passport. Was expecting a crowd since it is their usual peak period.... however, what greeted me was, snakes of people.... queuing JUST to get into the building. It took a good 10 to 15 minutes before i set foot in the building. Haven't been to the immigration place for ages.... but the last time I was there.... I dun recall having such strict controls on how people enter and leave the building. The senario was exactly like how it was featured on The Straits Times last week. Anyway, once inside, I mentally prepared myself for a long wait. But guess what..... I was served in 10min, despite the fact that when I got the queue number, there were close to 70 peops in queue. Counter ladies were working their hearts out... and what makes all these happen is probably a carefully thought through service process. Kudos to everyone at ICA & Immigrations. They truly showed people what effici

ProCreation - PART 2

A colleague who is on maternity leave came back to visit with some cakes for her baby's one-month. Had a little chat about her "ordeal". Started to have second thoughts about having kids. Yeah Yeah.... it is one of those times again where stories scare the hell out of me! ..... Her water bag burst early in the morning, and she had enough time to take a shower before checking herself into the hospital. Advice from new mothers:- take a shower when u can... otherwise it is NO BATHING at all during confinement. She happily checked herself into hospital... and the wait begun. After 10 hours... she haven't had contractions nor dilations..... OK... the wait continued. 15 hours later, still nothing. Finally.... after 1 whole day... she threw in the towel and opted for a ceasarian or is it c-section..... hmmm watever, i think u guys get the drift. She was telling me the part where they administered the anesthetic. She felt her back cramping...and losing the feel at her bot

Procreation

Procreation means : Reproduction is the biological process by which new individual organisms are produced. Reproduction is a fundamental feature of all known life ; each individual organism exists as the result of reproduction ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Procreation ) ---------------------------------------------------- Met up with a girl fren last week, and we came to the topic of procreation. Well, as a newly wed, it is obvious people will start asking when Hwa and I will add a new life into the family. We started listing down the pros and cons of having kids. Yes... they bring us joy... and all... and i definitely wanna be a mommy sometime later. But then.... having kids comes with all kinds of worries as well.... When we're expecting, we worry if the foetus is healthy..... then we go tru all the morning sickness.... puking.... moods during the various trimesters. AND..... when we see ourselves putting on weight, we begin to worry how to lose it. Haha! Then comes to del

The Letter

I have done the deed. I submitted my resgination to BB. Waited for this day for some time. But, I came out feeling depressed. I like this guy a lot.... as much as he is not a favourite with everyone, at least, he has my respect, and has been the best boss i ever had. I am not bullshitting. Yes.... he is difficult, and he is demanding. But, I have learnt to read his mood over the past 2 years. It isn't the best time for me to go. I know. But, there is never a good time yah? I appreciate the stuff that he has done for me.... and is intending to do for me. However, I know he has his limits too. He may be unwillingly to let me know.... but i know he will give me his blessings. Work here has been tough.... but then again, I will miss this place a whole lot. The people especially. Never felt so attached to a workplace before. Well.... better things (I hope) are waiting for me. So.... i should not let this affect me. I know BB will be happy for me too!

Saturday

The sun was scorchingly hot today.... started the day with McD's big breakfast delivered right up to my doorstep. Been some time since i had a BiG Breakie meal. Satisfied....:) Went to work.... to give away movie tickets... AGAIN. This is the second weekend in a row that I have to work.... and there will be a third next week. But I do feel consoled that weeks like this will be numbered. Those who are close to me will know what I am referring to. Dun want to say too much at this point... Anyway... while I am slogging away at work.... Hwa was out with prawning with his guy pals... Not that i envied them... esp in this weather. Just wished I had the choice to go prawning with them. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Just read an entry on one of my friend's blog. He mentioned that his colleague advised him to job hop while he is young. It is the best way to get ahead as well as to get your salary increased significan
