Work work and work...
Few days of not blogging.. hmmmm` Monday some of the caucasians arrived at our office, gotten to know all of them from the various branches overseas. And also first time meeting one of the big shots in the Esteve family who owns ECOM.
We then had department dinner after work. All of us took a van down to the Riverwalk Jumbo restaurant. Had a full dunno-how-many courses seafood meal. Crabs, cold plate which was extremely sumptuous, scallop in fried yam paste, fish, prawns, shark's fins and some others i couldn't remember. We occupied 2 tables and the ang mohs were so happy with the food lol`
And as for yesterday, i took half a day off then headed down for lunch and shopping with my parents and chris in bugis. ^^ I had a good time and ate red wine chicken mee sua for lunch =) We then went up to 2nd level of bugis street to shop, bought 3 pairs of ear candling wax and also 4 pairs of earrings for myself ^^ wheeeeeeee`
Today for lunch, i visited MPH and gotten jodi picoult's My sister's keeper
. This author seems really good and i think i might start collecting her books. haha` The story's also very unique and heartwarming, and of coz very contronversial. Aye aye, i wanna quit and get some badly needed rest. hmmmm`

Feeling quite peaceful..
Had a really good weekend with darling, too bad it ended so quickly, but the time spent was really awesome. ^^
As i've mentioned, he came over right from his camp on friday and stayed at my place till today evening. He wanted to drag me down to Grassroot's Club on Friday night for bowling but i was really too tired and lazy to go.
Stayed home all Saturday and then went out in the evening to meet Alvin and his gf for dinner and movies in J8. Double date was cool with them, we had dinner in Ajisen Ramen, and then dessert in Food Court and also tissue prata. haha` Good time spent while chatting with them.
Bought tics for 9.45 Omen and then slacked around. Movie was not bad, amazed me to think of how all those hollywood scriptwriters can come up with such unique plots.
4 of us then shared cab home and then darling and i drank some beer and retired for the night.
As for today, my man and i went to the market in the morning to have brunch, stayed home whole day due to nice rainy cold weather and just plainly chilling out. Love him the most. ^^
It's work tml! Need to rest early tonight to rejuvenate myself. Night and keep safe people.

Last night's opening match of Costa Rica against Germany was extremely exciting haha` Darling and i especially bought beer to watch the match over at my bunk. He was really sweet, waiting for me at my place after he booked out till i reached home.
Was really rooting for Germany coz wasn't interested in the underdog haha` Great game!! And more good ones to come, awaiting 13th june when brazil will play. haha`
Last week was a big whirl at work. Ming Tsan tendered her resignation, and being the pillar of the cotton commodity dept in asia regional office, we were all confused and really lost and definitely shocked. She's really a very good colleague, teaching us so many things but she was just too overladen with work till her bottle neck. Pretty sad.. And the tasks tt she was dealing with was sooo much that we really had to take time off to learn from her to do handover..
Just imagine reconciling inventory with physical as well as accounts, plus forward book is already a big headache. Good thing is we have a good leader who's mark allen, our cotton director who can really takes charge of things and delegate to lead us these lost sheeps. And even more lucky, we do not have politics that bad enuff to kill our spirits. I mean, it's the most important thing, and i feel glad we're all being united now and really staying together. Learnt alot about trading these past 2+ mths.
And now im still considering... I've really thought of resigning in July, coz I wanna get another job and basically enjoy July as well. But i really have very nice colleagues and in a bad dilemma now. Coz i can't just leave them just as ming tsan is leaving as well. I need to support my colleague under operations. Im not saying tt im indispensable, but i really would feel guilty about it. Can somebody give me brilliant advice? Hai. Im so troubled over this. Or maybe i should just stay on and work?
Management colleagues are even flying in from Mexico, Aussie and Pully (Switzerland) to help us manage our dept now and also to brainstorm on ideas. Even Charlotte who's from Aussie just gotten married yet agreed to stay here permanently to head documentation. Argh.. I feel really bad.

Somebody help me find my soul back.
Feeling quite down now.. Actually started ytd or something. Really lost all my self confidence, i badly need to regain them back, but how?
Hai.. Really feel like getting wasted as well, but all the alcohols at home doesn't seem to appeal to me. Maybe i should become aneroxic, and then i'll feel better. lol` No worries, coz i never will, i'm such a gastronome. Oh maybe bulimia will be a better option.. hmmmmm`
I feel effing FAT. And i am. Jeez`
This is conking me out. Adieus.

Weekend? What weekend. Man it's over...
On friday after work, i had dinner at sh's place. His mum would always whip up alot of dishes when i go over, making the Lim siblings ultra jealous. haha` Watched vcd over at his place till about 10 before darling and i made our way back to my place. Rest for a while at my home then we went down to Grassroots club at about 11+ pm for a bowling session.
Darling's really training very hard for the upcoming competition.. We really had a great time. Bowled till about 1+ before we went back home and rest for the night. Woke up on sat morning feeling all refreshed and happy. Both of us then slacked at my place till evening when i went down to orchard and meet up with my ex classmates whereas darling went home.
Finally got to catch up with winnie, dee, wing, xiaoling, uu, and eugene on saturday evening. Had late dinner in Suki sushi and really got down to chatting with all of them. Really good coz all the guys are going to go into army in a few days time.
After dinner, we went to Indochine for some live music and drinks. Spent some time chatting again till 11 plus, when we all headed back home. Chris took uncle tony's cab home, so he came to fetch me as well in wisma.
And as for today, the day before work starts again, mummy and i went to causeway point to shop. Wasn't really in the mood for shopping, so i didn't get much stuff, only a skirt from OP and a really pretty butterfly charm bracelet from 77th street. Had dinner with mummy in food court, super nice tom yam small pot and ampang yong tau foo.. hehe` Shopped around again but nothing really caught my eyes.. We then took a rest in Ya kun, took a cab home after tt... Spent a total of about 7 hrs there, resulting in extremely sore legs. tsktsk
It's monday tml! Quite anticipating work now, coz im always helping my colleagues to do their work now, making them not feel so stressed out and all..
