Freaking bars
Thursday, March 11, 2010
Though I only work 3 days a week, somehow I have to work from home on the other days when I'm not in office. It doesn't make any difference if I work 3 days or not. I still feel like working 5 days a week!

Like yesterday, I didn't work but I worked from home. I'm not too sure if I should took up yesterday's assignment when my boss told me she wanted some graphs because there were some auditors coming tomorrow. I saw the types of graph she wanted and I could feel my heart stopped beating because I don't know how to construct those kind of graph. They looked so complicated, and worse, I don't know how to use Microsoft Excel! But looking at my boss how frantic and how stress she is and thinking the graph is related to my current position. Make the auditor happy = my job position is saved. Considering of the advantages I told my boss I will try my best though my fine line means "I could give up any time so don't rely on me."

So I worked on the graph all day yesterday to the point I advertise for help on Facebook. Luckily a friend saw my message and came to the rescue. Actually many friends tried helping me but they didn't understand what I wanted and I could not show them what kind of graph I wanted because the example was considered as private and confidential. I wanted to make a bar graph where the bars are horizontal and the axis x has to be in 100. And the problem is I could not convert the axis into what I wanted. When I got it right on the axis, the bars got shrunk. It was really frustrating. I almost screamed actually. But somehow I managed to get everything right. And I was thankful to myself for not giving up because I was about to send whatever I have completed to my boss to fix the balance. I finally did it. Guess how many hours it took me to figure it out.

It's more than 10 hours. No joke. But what a feat for an Excel illiterate.

You think tonight I can enjoy myself to a movie? Unfortunately no. I have another brain whacking assignment to do before my colleagues in the office scream at my ear the next day. I deserved to be paid more.

I had a wonderful day. An online friend bought me morning tea and lunch. Renaye is always happy whenever she is well fed. HAHA. I noticed he looked different from online and in person. HAHA. Later I realised that's because his face looks bigger in his MSN avatar than real life!

Later, I went to do banking. Guess who I saw? Do you all remember the guy who tried to flirt with me from 22/10-24/10/2009? Yup. I saw him in front of a bank, which I wanted to do my banking there. I just called him out and waved. Don't think he can recognise me because I had my sunglasses on. Haha. But I sms-ed him later about the encounter. That's all. Surprisingly, I met his buddy who was with him on those days at my apartment car park. I didn't really recognise him at first because he was without eye liner. And after walking past him, I realised it was him. HAHA.

And surprisingly, I bumped into my online friend in the KLCC mall after I have done with my banking and he was on the way to go home to bath in his workload. I forgot to tell him that I have actually left a hilarious and serious comment during a stay in Genting Highlands - the only casino in Malaysia. I don't remember which hotel I have stayed in with my family but it was approximately 10 years ago. I was extremely mad at the hotel. I think it was Awana hotel which has a golf course. Anyway, I was mad because I had some uninvited guests in my room. Who was the uninvited guest?

It was a ... (hey... ants got how many legs ah?) a six legged insect! It's called ANT. I don't exactly remember what I wrote on the comment box because I only could remember the given space was not enough till I need to write on its back. But this was the message summary I wrote:

"I'm mad because I have to share my room with uninvited guests: ANTS. The room was not cheap and yet I'm forced to share my room with them. And what makes me madder is why the heck I have to share my donuts with the ANTS."

Good night people.

I'm back to work. I want to sleep more. To be frank.

But I had great days too. I have been a movie buff lately. Been watching almost a dvd a night. I watched The Book of Eli alone on last weekend and felt it was not a great movie at all. But still I enjoyed my lone outing and maybe one thing I regretted is not watching another movie after it! I watched UP cartoon last night and felt sad. It's an adult cartoon. I don't think children can relate the value of that cartoon. An adult could do so easily. And my next drama craze is Glee. I really wanna thank my online friend for reminding me to watch it. No regrets!

And I'm now reading a book for the 8th time. It's the only book which I can read so many times. Guess what book it is. *Grin*

Gong Xi Fa Cai gathering!
Wednesday, February 24, 2010
The Chinese in my department organised a Chinese New Year gathering for everyone in the faculty since the non-Chinese organised a Hari Raya and Deepavali gathering last year, and we were now returning the favour. Well,the gathering was a success. We had lots of food for everyone to eat and we got extras. I packed some home for dinner for my family and it lasted me til tonight's dinner. The curry chicken was so yum! The funniest thing happened was my two colleague, a retiree teacher and a secretary, fighting over the leftovers. As I mentioned, there were leftovers. We staff usually pack these extras so there's no waste... the cleaners and guards are even allowed to do that but they can only do so after the staff have finished. It was funny because those two colleagues were scooping the leftovers into plastic bags like there was no tomorrow. They had like 3 plastic bags for each dish. And then later, they mixed up their bags. And the secretary was telling the retiree "This bag is hers" pointing to high pile of chicken. The retiree was still scooping and he was replying "HEY IT'S MINE." The secretary was "NO IT'S MINE." Being wedged in the middle of the quarrel, I laughed in front of them and said we don't have to fight over this. Detecting the underlying sarcasm of mine, the retiree made it into a light joke that we were so engrossed with the food, we fought. But I don't understand why they were so gullible. I thought we could share the leftovers with the cleaners too since they are really pitiful. Their pay is so much little than ours and they were looking at the leftovers like a vulture except there's a tinge of anxiety looking over us.

I have been in that situation before. I could really understand the feeling of getting free food just because it helps to save money just to survive another day.

I'm a tourist!
Saturday, February 20, 2010
My collegemate from Korea came over to Malaysia for the past two days. My friend and I took him for dinner and the following day I because his tour guide. But you know in the end, I became a tourist too! The funniest thing happened was my Korean and I were at the Masjid Jamek LRT station. We were heading to the Central market, and he saw a tall flag pole in front of us. It was too glaring so I told him he could always take the photo later. After walking around Central market, we were dead tired and just wanted to rest and I ran out of places to take him around that area. So we just walked aimlessly around that area till I saw a big, new and modern library. This library has come out in the news in 2008, if I'm not mistaken, because it was funded by the KL municipal district but it was gonna close for some time due to insufficient funding. The users of this library gave good reviews of this library which I could not believe. But stepping into the library, I believed what I saw. It is like a library I entered in New Zealand!! Except it has very little books but the place is so comfortable!! But still there are books we can borrow. I'm very impressed. My friend just dropped dead in the sofa. There were computers with internet too.

We were heading out of the library and the flag pole we saw earlier was right in front of us. My friend kept on telling me that we are in front of Merdeka Square. I could not believe it because Merdeka Square sounds so far away from me. It could not be within walking distance from the historical iconic place! So I asked the staff and she told me the exact thing my friend told me earlier. HAHAHAHA. So we went to the flag pole and took some pictures. My friend told me this is the tallest flag pole in the world. My jaw dropped.

Later, I took him to an Indian restaurant to eat. Thankfully he liked the mango lassi.
