catching up

Last night I went out with chickenwing to dinner and to help her buy stuff for her folks at home – also taking this time to bersampat with her, which was absolutely fun! Hahah it is so funny to see how she thinks it’s easy to buy stuff for guys but difficult to buy stuff for girls. I think most people would have the exact opposite sentiments. She’s a very cute person to go shopping with, I’ll say =) She also got me something! It’s a really pretty handmade bracelet from one of the blogshops (yea haha I have poisoned her to the world of online blog shopping =P)Also took the time to go kacau the people at Fish & Co. and I’m amazed to say they still remember me! And Vince was there too! XDXDXD I haven’t seen him in quite awhile, at least I’ve seen the makcik and Keat (studying electronic engineering @ UNIMAS, woot neatness!) Glad to see everyone’s doing great XD aaahhhhh I miss the good ol’ days (damn I sound really old when I do that, but then again at first glance people can’t tell whether I’m still schooling or in uni anyway =P)

crazy chickenwing! pack earlier k next time! talk about a real close shave <_<less than a minute ago via TwitterGadget


Today I got woken up at 8:30AM by a call from some random 016 number, and it didn’t strike me then who this might be. I was considering ignoring the call, but I picked it up anyway to find.. It was the taxi dude who was supposed to drive chickenwing to the airport as she was flying back to Brunei at 1:30PM.

At first I thought she was in the toilet, so I thought you know, just ignore it and go back to sleep. Which was exactly what I did.

about 10 mins to 9AM, the same number calls again. He went “ok so this is confirm cancel ar?” to which I mumbled, “Maybe she’s getting ready, I’ll try calling her.” Which I did, and to no avail since she didn’t pick up. So I thought, oh damn she really is oversleeping! But try as I might I know that phone rings don’t awake people who’re sleeping logs. So I rushed off to work.

11AM beckons, and now I get a call from the chickenwing. She goes frantically “zomg… do you know what just happened >___< ” and this time I reply “Yes I know what happened..” haha! I cannot believe I was being so.. blunt. Told her to calm down and just take the first taxi from her apartment to LCCT.

Thankfully, thankfullythankfullythankfully she got there just in the nick of time to check in before the check-in counter closed.. And she texted me to say “zomg thank God!” (with the capital G) for which I was pretty glad for her. =)

Later on in the evening, went out to dinner with some of the S9 gang. Attendees of the night were:

  • me
  • rowena
  • mishan
  • bobby
  • vincent
  • ken
  • guan
  • hh
  • jiun

A pity hou couldn’t join us cause he’s got exams the following day.. but still we remembered you! XD everyone was asking why you couldn’t attend~~ hh was pretty funny going “hey you know I met up with the moomoo guy when I was attending an interview with xxx company” – to which ken and I went “huh? who is this moomoo dude?!” Turns out he was referring to Andrew Chew. Hahaha! Some nicknames really do stick.

It was a hilarious affair as we were watching the first game of the day… South Korea vs Argentina. Messi and Higuain were amazingly good, and yes Ken Seong was pretty much right – every time the camera focuses on Maradona he’s doing some funny expression. We also got to discussing other funny sportsmen’s habits like Nadal having to pull his shorts like he’s got a wedgie, rub his nose then serve the ball. Stuff like that.

Anyway, it was unfortunate that Korea played pretty badly, and that the ominous sign was scoring an own goal. Ken Seong was saying “Hey Korea got pretty good defenses okay~” to which Vincent retorted, “haha yeah, but they still scored their own goal! oops” – to this, I gotta say “oh snap!”

The girls got down to talking about the lengzhai Korean players and Jiun was saying “wow, these girls are really keng! We’re not wearing glasses, but they can see more clearly than we can!” hahaha! and also “aiseh Rowena! You support Korea then say they lengzhai, now they’re losing you say they look like pekerja buruh!” ahhaha sorry but it was too funny to not remember XD

someone’s gonna drink 3 glasses of drinks at chili’s tonight XDless than a minute ago via mobile web


vince and ken made a bet, whoever lost had to drink 3 full glasses of whatever they were drinking (we were in Chili’s, so that’s a substantial amount of fluid to be drinking in one shot) and ken was like “yeah I can do it!” XDXD towards the end, vince went “hey you better empty your bladder as much as you can!” – no prizes for guessing who sided who. =P

We’re thinking of going clubbing next week Friday, and staying overnight in the city~ I haven’t done that since uni.. damn it’s been awhile =P

days that pass by too quickly

Very true fact, and loving it (and while I’m at it I might as well try my hand at fiddling with Twitter’s Blackbird Pie:

i like the fact that guama and i can greet each other with “meow meow!”less than a minute ago via Chromed Bird


On a totally unrelated note, I heard my door open and without thinking I said “meow meow!” not knowing that it was my dad instead of guama. XD
______________

On to other ramblings…

Sometimes I wish the days would slow down abit. After I get home from work, have dinner and watch tv, it’s time for bed – and the cycle continues.

Today I had to pick up ti from his friend’s place around 930-ish cause he was group studying for the exams coming in a few weeks… hope he tries his best! Arrogant kid but he has what it takes if he channels his energy & efforts in the ‘right’ direction.

I feel like doing something mind-blowing. But what?

balancing the bleh

ugh today somehow sitting at my desk and reminding myself of what I’ve yet to do, switched on the ‘bleh’ switch and I couldn’t turn it off all day. So it kinda resulted me in wishing that there were more things in my Google Reader to read.. and not wanting to touch the thing all day. =P

Well I couldn’t avoid it completely, so I just got myself together, and used music as a motivator. Of course this sometimes backfires on me cause I’d get too caught up in the music and forget about doing work altogether =P It’s hard to find a balance, but when I do hit the sweet spot time can pass by in a flash!

Found myself wanting doses of sweet things (candy, chocs) at the oddest of times – usually at the times where I feel most bleh. Again, this can backfire on me cause it’ll send me on a sugar rush, then an ultimate low where I have to try my hardest not to nod off to sleep from crash in sugar levels not too long after.

Weekly meetings are somehow very boring, why is that? Probably cause I’m not involved in alot of things, and I’m mostly there just to keep up with what everyone else is doing – good to know, but I feel like my presence is just that bit redundant~ I’ll doodle, shift around in my seat, flip the same 2 pages over and over while pretending like I’m thinking of something.. and reading some sorely mistyped events (i.e. working to develop some iPhone app when I’m clearly just studying Objective C…helloooo there is a world of difference there dearie!)

And today, I discover that I’m not the biggest fan of smarty – simply because it makes development such a pain in the arse (for me, anyway). The syntax is totally different, I can’t easily interchange php and smarty (well I have to assign every other damn thing to smarty if I want to use it). It’s meant to seperate the front end layout from the back end scripting but but but it’s *such* a bitch to work with! Maybe I’m not exposed enough to it, but building more walls around certain sections of code doesn’t make it any more neater. I hope we get rid of this thing soon, seriously. bleh.

odd but good

yesterday was a public holiday, and yet we had to attend one of those talks by image consultants about what clothes to wear… kinda like shopping 101/shopping for dummies. Can’t say that I enjoyed it very much, it was kinda boring and I do know some of this stuff – besides, if I really needed to the Internet and uncle Google’s always there to point me in the right direction. And we were there for the entire afternoon (from 1PM – 6PM! lesigh – I want my public holiday Saturdayyyy!)

After that was more fun though… we (+ lihao, adam, seon, feebs, jas, ed, eric) went to have dinner and bersampat about things we observed during that afternoon (apart from all the obscenity during that bit about sexual harassment that made us all cringe and laugh so hard at the same time, and especially some comment(s) we saw on facebook)~~

Went to watch the Prince of Persia after dinner, which was quite interesting. I kinda expected the prince to be abit more goofy and douchebag-ish but considering everything, he was alright I guess. Loved the action, I thought it really reminded me of the game itself – all that jumping and running around (which reminds me of Unchartered, really!) was really nicely done. We were kinda joking about all the ‘potong stim’ moments cause it was only a 3rd time lucky thing, and even on the fourth go it faaaiiled (lawls!) I did like the scenery and some of the charas,  but the story I suppose is kind of predictable. Nicely done costumes too. Although the last bit really reminded me of Unchartered/Indy Jones, it does make me wonder if they will someday make a movie out of Unchartered – it would be interesting XD Alot of witty lines and phrases in the movie made me laugh! Love the scriptwriter for that!

Went to Piccadilly @ Millenium Square after for some drinks.. I think for the most part we were talking about sports and some really compromising positions the fighters were in (we were watching some free-for-all fighting competition). Probably the first time I saw so many sports on so many screens at the same time. And I heard some really interesting stories too =P Hanging out like this, well it feels kinda different compared to just having lunches on a regular work day somehow. Not so inhibited (maybe cause the manager wasn’t there with us~) and alot more.. gossipy? hahaha! I guess that’s part of work life… which doesn’t really appeal to me, but I think as long as I don’t spread the fire along, it’s interesting to listen to. (although that means someone has to spread it in the first place =P)

recent random photos..

.. that I’ve been taking.. nothing great coming from a Sony Ericsson W595 but still XD threw in the occasional print screen where things are fun XD

zomg this morning as I was rushing out to work (haha yes I was *slightly* late today) the front gate terkepit (I can’t think of the english word for it for now, haha!) fleshy part of my palm and it hurt like *tooooooooooooooooot*! It was actually hard to drive with one hand, considering that I need my left hand to also turn the wheel, signal and shift gear (haha well I drive an auto so this doesn’t count, but imagine if I drove a manual! fml indeed…) because of this, my hand was totally numb for the next half hour or so…. gawd it hurt like hell! and nao there’s this long-ish line where the kepit happened and the black-ish area where I suspect will be the location of a massive bruise. This morning it was way worse cause I swear I could feel the swelling where my palm was practically screaming in paaaiinn~~

[update] dunno why photobucket removed the image.. *shrug*
