My bed...

Sometimes... I really wish that I have a digital camera so that I don't have to toture my hp to take horrible pics..

I like photography.. but never have a chance to go into it...

Anyway.. this is my bed (it's double decker).. after my mum nagged at me for dunno-how-many months before arrival of CNY..

It better stayed that way until we decided to do something about it...

p/s: I would really appreciate if anyone wanna donate to me their vouchers from any electronics stores, so that I can get a digital camera at a discounted price... Donors anyone???? (-.-)

My 1st contact with SM, PM, and MM~!!!!!

5th February...

Istana... Chinese New Year Garden Party...

I was 'arrowed' to become... a part-time escort for SM... and PM...

From 2pm onwards, we were there... waiting for guests to arrive..
PM, SM and MM won't arrive till 4pm..

Food: so-so, catered by Raffles Hotel.. (I like their western pastries.. yummy)
Atmosphere: tense... everyone waiting for the big shots' arrival..
People: Grassroots leaders, ministers etc

When the big shots arrived...
You probably would wanna find a place to hide, away from the mad crowd.. I was squashed alive.. everyone pushing to get a pic of them.. and their handshakes..

Seriously... PM and SM are really cool people!! They are so FRIENDLY~!!!
Of cos, both have bodyguards closed to them (and we are part of their bodyguard party).
** did I mention the bodyguards... some were really cute-looking?**

I managed to get a handshake with PM, right before he left in his car..

My 1st .. and probably the last... contact with our country's hot shots...
My 1st and last time... that I ever wanted.. to STAND CONTINUOUSLY FOR 8 HOURS STRAIGHT W/O RESTING!!!!!!!

p/s: we did however.. awarded with 1 day time off for our 'efforts'. WAHAHAHAHAHA..

My bf's big shit...

Ok.. as stated in my previous posts...Some big shit happened to my bf.

For 1 period of 2 months +, I was unfortunately made a part-time nanny, maid, personal nurse to my bf.

Poor bf kenna GOUT (rich man's illness)...

It all started when 1 day, during work, bf's trainee made a really-bad-and-god-damned-bad U-turn and almost crashed up the center fence. Of cos, bf had to step on the brake, and it happened that the car's brake pad was small and slippery (wasn't bf's usual car; his training car was at workshop), bf's foot was big (size 10), poor fella sprained his ankle.

So.. thinking it was a sprain, he went to see the chinese physician. Ankle got worse.. and to the extent that he had to buy a walking stick... Thus he went to see his company doc, doc says he got gout and gave him this medicine (phenenor or whatever). This medicine apparently was already not in use by hospitals becos of its side-effects(we din know about that @ that time).

The miraclously thing happened... it spread from his left ankle to his right ankle.. so now... BOTH ankles injuried..

Everyday I had to rush off after work to his house to take care of him, and accompany him..

I was staying over at his place during 1 weekend, when in the middle of the night....... he told his the pain was unbearable and getting worse.. Usually he can really tahan pain.. so when he said he really couldn't bear with it, I know it was bad... Poor fella can't even get out from his bed.
So we decided to call an ambulance.. non-emergency one lar..

FYI.. it was a FREAKING $80!!!!!!!

Anyway, I waited @ NUH for 4 hours plus.. from 12midnight to around 4-5am the next morn..
His uric acid level was a all-time high of 8.8. The doc was very worried. That's when he told us that the medication he took from his company doc was already not in use, as the medicine will transfer the 'pain' to another joint.

I tot the hospital bills gonna be huge.. guess wat.. it's only... $70! including medicine..

So... time passed... he went for checkups.. and doc told him his left ankle joint was infected and filled with pus. Pus was removed and he was also placed on diet (for his gout problem).

Went back to work after 2 months of unpaid leave... He was worried that he might be aske dto leave.. but luckily, his company only told him that his confirmation will be delayed for another 5 more mths. Rather than being dismissed, 5 more months to be confirmed is like a blessing to him.

He's still on checkup with NUH doctors and his situation is placed under control..

But financial-wise... haiz.... both of us got to start from zero again.. :(

I love my office..

Ever since we had new colleagues coming in since October, the office (particularly our section) was pretty rowdy. Of cos, I'm not quite the main reason.. though my CSEs always wondering who was the heck laffing behind the door.. FYI, I'm sitting just IN FRONT of the damned door (leading out to the service centre).. HOW UNFORTUNATE..

Anyway, the group of us (young and old) just happened to be able to click together. So we always talked rubbish everyday, make jokes, gossip (about some bitchy stuffs), even to the extent of messing up everyones' desk...

This is what happened to Maria's table (right in front of her own eyes)..

It was actually supposed to be 3 of 'it' arranged in a row.. but Maria took it off.. So we had to restraint her.. and created this scene...

This is part (and parcel) of our office life.....

I love my office... (^-^)

Does anyone miss me?

I've been missing for 3 months...

Reasons for MIA:
1) My laptop was down with weird spywares and trojan horses and viruses... My bf's buddy cracked his brains while trying to clean my laptop (cos I simply refused to budge when he asked me to just format the whole hard-disk; that's of cos my last resort... :P )

2) When he finally admitted to hospital after settling the notorious Shannon's-god-damned-shitty-laptop, big shit happened to my bf.. Details to be filled in later..

3) My work gets piled up.. I've got no day/ night.. just work.. and work... and work...

4) I've got an addiction... to The Sims... again... for the i-dunno-how-many times.. This time round.. I've got almost all the expansions, except Makin' Magic. So.. no explanations needed..

5) Lazy to blog... don't even have the time to read other people's blogs..

6) Other than work, I'm enjoying my life... with my bf.. and my colleagues..

So there you go... my reasons for MIA..
