Annie and I sang karaoke from 6pm to 10pm.. after many months of 'rest'.

Sang our hearts out sia.. invited quite a few friends/ colleagues along.. but all no give face. Either go another colleague's open-house, sick if not overtime. Thus only left the 2 of us.

Sang 曹格's Superwoman, Jay Chou's 七里香 and 千里之外, many many more.. practised with annie some duets (since we seldom got guys who know how to sing) 窗外 and 你最珍贵 (now we are expert in this song, I can sing Jacky Cheung version pretty well. LOL). I also tried singing 恋爱达人 on my own.

No idea how many songs we sang.. serious.. I only know.. now.. my throat is.. rather dry... HA HA HA..

Waiting for another round of karaoke.. Now i'm a member of both Party World and K-Box.

Anyone wanna go karaoke???

2006.. ending.. 2007... coming...

Last Friday.. we had our NWCDC staff retreat at Sentosa's Siloso beach Resort. Think it's just been built, so quite a few parts were still under construction. BUT.. the place is beautiful.. the view that's over-looking.. the sea.. the trees.. So relaxing..

Me and Annie arrived there super early, cos' hers is a weekend car. So we had our 'free' breakfast at the rooftop. why 'free'? Cos'... the breakfast is catered for the hotel residents. The staff tot that we were the hotel residents so din bother about us. Ha ha ha..

Anyway.. I was sabo-ed to be emcee again. (-.-)

Morning session's usually work.. but it was fun.. cos' the presentations by all the teams were damned hilarious!! laff our heads off lor..

Then.. afternoon we have our games.. Went for ride at the er... cable-bench? or was that sky-ride? Whatever lar.. Then visited images of Singapore... which...
our GM... had a 'lovely' surprise inside.. Ha ha ha.. There were some actors posing as figurines inside the musuem. Our GM tot that they are just wax figurines (anyway.. the place was really dim) and put his arm on one of the 'china-man' arm. To his surprise, it was soft and warm to the touch. Within milli-seconds, the figurine suddenly became ALIVE and scared the hell out of our poor GM. That scene was absolutely funny!!

Travelling with our GM is actually fun.. cos he likes to crack jokes and soemtimes do a bit of action to make everyone laff. Very fatherly figure. He even participated in our Captain Ball competition and very very sporting lor.. even our DGM as well.

This captain ball definately made me run more than what I ran in the past YEARS! After the game, we had another mind-boggling mental game. Supposed to use any mathematical ways to give the answer to 10 with the given 4 numbers. i.e.: 1, 2, 3, 4 = 10. Solution: 1+2+3+4= 10 or 1 x (2+3) + 4 =10 etc. This game actually came up by our GM leh.. we only knew it when we were resting in one of the hotel rooms and our GM came in to relax. Gave us some other sums to play around.. then we realised why he so good in these.. he majored in physics last time.. No wonder lor..

After washing up, we had our buffet dinner and gift exchange. Guess who bought my present? Our MAYOR!!! I was so.. so.. surprised! When asked whom he had bought the present for (via drawing of lots a month ago), he said it's for a young fun-loving lady, then said out my name.. Damned pai-seh sia.. Anyway.. our mayor bought me a sporty waist pouch and a boxing-glove cushion on a stick (somewhat like those massager.. and it happens that my mum had asked me to buy since hers was spoiled).

Nice memories of 2006..

Appraisal is finally over...


It's over!!!!!!

It's finally over!!!!!

Then again... over liao , so wat?
Ha ha ha..

I've been working until pretty late everyday.. going back around after 8pm+.. there's this Friday (just last week), I left office at 11.50PM along with Annie.. She was rushing through the appraisals which she had to correct many of my colleagues' English.. For me, I was trying to finish as much work as possible.

The most amazing thing that we did was to come back to work the next day.. at around 8-9am. It's a Saturday.. came back to do housekeeping since GM wants to check our workstations.. (-.-|||)

Since there's plans to renovate our area, I might as well tidy my workstation and remove quite a fair bits ofn personal things, so that I don't have much problem later on.

Now my table looks pretty neat.. that will probably last me for another 1-2 weeks before it turns messy again. Haiz..

Anyway.. I'm really happy for the past 1 week, cos' I'm pretty pleased with my appraisal, the comments and new tasks assigned to me. I'm glad that I did a fairly good job this year as an ESC .. I will definitely continue to work hard for the upcoming year..

Went back to OMB on Wednesday for a small group discussion on our current online database. I was quite early, so went to disturb a couple of my WDA colleagues. I was really surprised that my WDA colleagues already knew the change, and began asking me about wat's going to happen next. I can't say much cos' nothing has been finalised yet..

After attending the discussion, I was going off to wait for my bf @ the MRT Station. JS happened to finish her Case Sharing Conference at the same timing, so we went to TCC for a quick snacks and some drinks since bf will be working a slight late.

After ordering the drinks and snacks, bf called me and said that he's on his way to meet me. Told him that I'm at TCC with JS and asked him to just come over to meet me.
We chit-chat for a while, before we decided to leave. Treat JS to this meal since I suggested coming.

BF and I went to Marina Sq for dinner @ Billy Bombers. I like the service there. The restaurant manager is really friendly! The food was good too. Most importantly, it's relatively affordable. Was supposed to shop around for x'mas presents but couldn't seem to find anything suitable and affordable. In the end, bf suggested going shopping during one of the weekends, where we wake up early and go shopping for the entire day, as many places as I want. Can really shop till I drop lor.. which's wat happened the other time.. Ha ha ha..

Anyway.. I promised my cousin that I will go and be her photographer on Saturday for her cosplay event @ Expo. Hopefully I can get everything done by 2pm to meet bf after his work since Sunday is mostly likely to visit his granny with his parents. I doubt I like being interrupted in the middle of my shopping spree to go somewhere else.

And the idea of going shopping with his parents... simply No no..

Previously, his parents tagged along when my bf told them we are going shopping. We ended up buying nothing (especially me when I actually wanted to buy clothings on that day) cos' his mum kept asking me to help her see if the clothes are suitable for her and we went into every single shop in the shopping center. In the end, his mum bought the most things.. and my bf didn't want to enter the shops with me cos' he was already irritated by his mum's naggings till he got frustrated.

Since then, I told my bf... "if next time I wanna go shopping, and your parents tag along, I will just change my mind on shopping and just tag behind your mum instead." I know it might sound pretty disrespectful, but really.. his mum can really talk and talk non-stop till the extent that you felt like stuffing your ears with wax.

I hope this weekend... I can shop in peace.. LOL
