Goodbye 2010

It’s the last day of the year.

Time for reflection.

The first half of the year was…. Just normal.

Nothing new or exciting.

Second half was great.

Went to Beijing (was in shopping heaven)

Had a blast with my gals (after not seeing them for two years)

Finally did renovations to my place (at last a working kitchen)

Had an unexpected job offer (starting in January)

New year offers new challenges and I am all geared up for it.

A Tribute To A Great Boss

Its not a myth!

There is such a thing as a great boss.

His name is H.

When I was given an offer I cannot refuse, my first concern was how to tell him.

I couldn’t sleep…. I tossed and turned all night.

The next day, I was nervous and worried.

I am worried that I would disappoint him but I needed the challenge that was offered.

When at last he came in, I broke the news to him.

I felt his concern for my well being when he heard it’s a new company.

That’s H…. his ability to show concern for others over his own.

To quote the driver, “Tak tahula saya, bila dia cakap Hello Bro, saya terus cair”, meaning he can never get angry with H.

There are so many instances that exemplified his character, but there isn’t enough space here to write it all down.

I just want to say that during his birthday and I was walking around with him in the club, I wasn’t being protective because he is my boss, I was protective because I think of him as my bro.

He is no longer my boss, but he will always be my bro and friend.

My new journey starts with a great appreciation of what a great boss should be.

My new adventure begins with the believe that doing the right thing is its own reward.

My new year commences with the knowledge that I have a friend that I can confide.

I pray that he achieves the success that reflects the passion that he has for life, work and relationships.

At Last, With My Gals

Its been 2 years since I last saw my gals.

Its great that I get to have them for 3 days.

Instead of boring them with my presence for three days, I got some of their cousins to join us.

Aishah, Dijah, Sarah, Farish and Michelle will be joining Nadya and Jazmeen.

On the first day I took them to a beading class.

And because of the heavy rain, we went to karaoke instead of the Bird Park.

More than 4 freaking hours of young girls screaming and singing.

It was fun!

Second day, only Michelle could join us.

Total shopping!

Bought them all kinda stuff from school shoes to necklaces.

On the third day, we just had a quiet family lunch.

Its all good…. Hopefully I don’t have to wait for another 2 years to see them again.

*keeping fingers crossed*

Beading time.

Karaoke madness!

Chillin at Baskin.

At the end of the day.

Me and my gals.

Christmas Cards

I have never made a card before.

Not a birthday, seasonal, valentine or mother’s day card!

There are too many people that I would like to send the cards to but with limited resources…. I am just sending it to my fellow Guardians and Mur.

Merry Christmas!

Started with playing around the JPEGS on my laptop.

Putting my personal touch on it.

Here is my crazy attempt at art with some raw materials…. Snowflake and glitter.

Putting glue on the snowflake.

Now to make my snowflake shiny.

Do they look pretty? *wink*

Now to stick them on the cards!

Btw…… I know its only a card, but it’s a personalised card.

It’s a gift from the bottom of my heart.

Federation D Street Party

Attended Federation D’s Street Party last week.

Lots of fast cars and hot chicks.

Not gonna waste time posting car pictures.

Here is what you missed if you were not there.

U Mobile

I hate putting down another person, or even another organization but I need to vent.

U Mobile, you suck!

First and foremost, when I first subscribe to you, your billing was screwed up.

I pay every single month but its not always reflected in the bill.

Your excuse is that your system is not ready.


You start a business and your billing system is not ready??

It shows the mentality of your management!

And the connection is always dropping.

Its like the freaking Chipsmore ad, now you see it now you don’t!

It got from bad to worse… to the point that I can hardly stay online anymore.

Time to discontinue my account.

Calling them was easy enough.

And as usual when a customer wants to discontinue, they will make you jump thru hoops.

Fax this, fax that….. whats new?

And when I called to confirm, your people argued with me.

Gave me wrong information and insisting that I pay even more for discontinuing the service.

Thank god I know whats right or wrong, and I fought for my rights.

What about those that are non confrontational or ignorant about your policies.

With the market becoming more competitive, you still offer below par service with support that is lacking?

You are definitely looking at professional suicide.

Did I mention I love watching cartoons?

Besides getting the box set for series, I get anime as well.

My latest interest is Fairy Tail.

I hate chasing it on the tube as my timing is never predictable.

Went to the night market to get the box set (as you can see in the pic, I am spoilt for choice)

The box set available is only part of the season.

It seems the series is still incomplete (Yes, Meru said “I told you so”)

I hate walking away empty handed, so I bought Samurai X.

One of my earlier fav series.

Now to see if I am free this weekend for a marathon of 90 plus episodes.

December, a new month with new projects.

My gals will be with me for three days. Yay!

Looking forward to that and am very excited about it.

But the main project is the renovation.

Focus is on the kitchen with a possibility of doing the walk in.

Now it looks like the walk in is a go with the possibility of doing the dinner area.

Budget is totally broken but hey…. Why not?

Its not always I get contractors messing up my place, might as well maximise them.

Then there is the Christmas and New Year Party.

Busy, busy, busy!

Random In Beijing

More pics from Beijing!

Acting like tourist in front of Hard Rock.

Chillin after walking about at Tiananmen.

Lets have some fun!

Diane with a Korean dude (confirming her fetish for old man)

Chillin outside Pearl Market (rare moments when we can feel the sun’s heat)

Strike a pose! High fashion!
