Happy Updates~!

Update updates updates~!!

Hasn't been updating for a very long time..

Let's see.. where shall we start?

finally.. after talking about it for so long..
I finally.. bear to part $700 from my bonus to buy it.. DEFINATELY money well-spent!
Although we bought quite a few new games.. even before we complete any one.. Our habit is to finish/ complete 1 game before buying another. Mind you.. our speed of playing, we can complete 1 game probably within 2 days (weekends, burning our sleep). Yes.. we are that MAD~!
So.. enjoying every single second of our Xbox360, we now have (in less than 2 weeks) the following games:
- N3 (Completed Inphhy's profile, now playing Asphaar)
- PGR3
(free with the package that we bought)
- Gears of War (because of the suspense and excitement at times, my heart was thumping hard)

Newest addition: Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Las Vegas

It's so REAL.. that.. I was totally an idiot at this game.. BUT.. I declare myself as a pretty good 军师 when bf was playing it in 1-player.

There are certain types of games which I can't play, especially those types like counter strike where you usually see the hands only (i.e: Halo 2). I will get giddy.. then.. nauseous.. then.. major big headache.. and get sick. So.. too bad.. I can't play for too long, if not, I probably won't even buy.

There are games which can make me doze off faster than sleeping pills. Ask my bf.. he will sure shake his head and tell you. The fastest way to make me sleep.. Just put Fifa, NBA Live etc to play... I will just doze off beside you. Don''t ask me why.. I have no idea..

2) Promotion
I'm a very happy gal.. My letter of promotion came with my PB letter..
I'm now a SWDA Grade 5 officer.. Hee Hee.. Hard work paid off..

3) PB
Another happy thing.. got good PB.. and I've treat those who have helped me with a good meal/ food to show my appreciation. BF is the happiest.. cos he got his precious 360 even though he requested for his 1 month-bonus from me.. (-.-)

4) Salary Increment
There was a 1-time adjustment to my salary (for Diploma grads), that was enough to make me delighted and gleeing with joy.. BUT to make things even better, I've also got the following:
- Merit + Promotion increment

Should see my face when my Director asked me to open up my letter..

Can't stop SMILING.. I've never thought I could get this much.. I probably know that I'm at the low end of the range, but I'm happy..
This means that I can now SAVE more money.. probably increase my shopping budget another $50 higher? If my mum knows, she will ask for a pay-rise from me.. ArgHh.. but.. the priority goes to saving for my big day, which.. I have no idea when. anyway, feels good to have a good sum of $$ in your bank a/c.

5) Shopping SPREE
Went for spree.. to reward myself..
Attended my 2nd facial session at Bonafides, Attended my free makeup lessons at Bobbi Brown (2 out of 6 lessons), Trimmed and shaped my eyebrows nicely by the BB Makeup artist, bought a few new makeup items, 1 blouse + pants from DP.

Supposed to treat my parents to a good meal.. but.. shall let that wait until my new pay comes in. Ha ha ha..


Now.. I'm deciding whether to get, or not to apply for a credit card. A lot of people said, it's like sending myself to hell.. cos if I can't stop, i will probably end up with a lot of DEBTS. I reckon I will become like that..I never like to be in debt.. I'm a stingy pig, who will try to keep as much $$ as possible.

I'm thinking of convenience.. during emergencies.. when you do not have so much cash.. or when you need to purchase something and do not have so much cash/ not willing to depart so much cash at 1 time..
Dining at restaurants, shopping etc.. I still have my debit card and I've controlled my expenses well so far.

So.. should I? or should I not?

Then if I should.. which one is better to get? UOB or Citibank? (_ _??)
