I noticed lots of photographers outside of the elite bungalow houses along the road to my house. I thought they were watching some rare birds since all of them were facing at the same angle. So I was snooping around that area from that small screen of the taxi car. And the driver infromed me that someone Very Important Person (aka VIP) stays there... Ooh I could see that since I saw two women cladding in house coats telling those birdwatchers something something since I could see the hands moving. And ooh ... I can't believe my famous neighbourhood really has famous neighbours!
Anyway, it doens't matter with me since I don't get money from saying 'I know where she lives.'
But I'm sure some busy body would love to tell the whole world where does this VIP lives and which relatives of hers live near this VIP. And not forgetting to add 'ooh I have passed that area too...' Anyway, to my dearest auntie, shut up. People don't need to know about this trivia information when we are dying to survive the meagre salary and the ever increasing standard of living. I cannot understand why would someone tries to be knowledgeable in the busybody section, why not health and finance??
Anyway, the VIP is Andy Lau's partner. Well, Andy Lau is a very well known entertainer in Hong Kong and also Asian countries. His love life has been kept secret for the past 27 years except we all know he has a partner for the past 27 years...
I'm sorry to hear the partner's father died recently. I really feel sorry for her when there are photographers outside of her house, not mourning for her father's death but dying to wait for the news about her love life with Andy Lau because according to the paper, the couple will be announcing their status.

I never like to spread negativism but I could not help it in this entry because I'm quite mad for not having the ability to understand human beings. The risk of posting this entry is losing readers. But hear me out first.
1) I remember Jolenesiah and I always rant to each other that bloggers never leave their footprints on our blogs after we have left ours. And they never have any comment trackers so they really think their visitors like me have sixth sense knowing when they reply our comments on their blogs. I asked one of my friends who fits this category and she was telling me loudly that visitors are supposed to go back to the blog to see owner's comment. You think I'm Professor X ah? I actually did go back to some of these blogs but never see a reply to my comment.
Anyway, I decided to leave comments regardless the blogger wants to reply me or not. I feel so much happier in that way.
2) Recently I noticed there are some bloggers asking me who I am. What I am? A beauty of course. Don't you think so?
I visit a lot of blogs a day and I frequently leave my comments. And these bloggers will visit my blog and leave their comments: Who are you? or May I know who are you? or How did you find my blog? apart from thanking me.
One thing assuring about me is I'm not a stalker, unless your brother or friend is some cool Japanese hunk like Jun Matsumoto or Yamapi. To be frank, I failed to be a stalker so I gave up on this profession.
I don't remember attending so many conferences and ask people beside me "Who are you?" though I asked "How did you get to know of this conference?" The same thing goes to blogs. I don't recall myself asking my readers "Who are you?" They are human la! They are my readers la! They are my visitors la! Blogs are public domain; everyone and anyone could read blogs. So those comments I said earlier are obsolete. Besides, no explanation about myself is not needed. Because it makes visitors like me feeling uncomfortable doubting whether I'm an intruder or visitor though the bloggers may not mean this way. No explanation about how I located the blog is needed because I can simply google a nickname ... don't we bloggers leave comments everywhere and anywhere in the name of increasing traffics?
The only time I will use Who are you is to those visitors who found my blog via googling my full name. Unfortunately, I yet to ask because they never left their footprint!
3) Point 3 is not about blog but I cannot help myself pitying this.
As for all my frequent readers, you all know I recently went for a makeover just for the fun of it and also to get makeup vouchers. I thanked you all for those nice flattering comments. The only comment that alerted my scratching mode, and also Jolenesiah to an extent is "Aiyo, what happened?" on my facebook by worm worm. I didn't answer because no girls, ugly or pretty, would want to hear or read that kind of statements.
Worm worm also asked me the same thing "what happened to you? why all of the sudden?" on MSN messenger.
To all boys out there, if you want to get a punch on your face by any girls, please ask that question to your gf or any girl friends who dress nicely. Even your wife would whack you if you ask her why suddenly dress so nicely.
No explanation is needed because this is not about 'hard to understand girls'. This is about social etiquette and intelligence. Do you, as a guy, go to another guy and tell him he is ugly?
This world is now not about IQ but EQ. So think before you talk to a stranger and friends.

I made a rose out of the cheap ribbon I bought a few weeks ago. Don't know where the balance is. Maybe somewhere under my bed.

I don't remember when was the last time I felt as bad as now. I'm more to feeling guilty. This all happened at work since yesterday.
I'm organising a major event very soon. I have been working hard to make it goes as smoothly as possible. The first thing I did was to confirm the venue and somehow ended up, there is no venue for the event. I told the person in charge about the event and considered some recommendations. As you all read my previous posts, I'm now doubting myself for having memory loss. I booked the wrong venue because it is too small but this should never be the case for a person like me who has thought thoroughly of the plan before executing it. I won't make a firm decision if I have not taken into account of all recommendations and my own eyes. If I could go to every shop in my place here to hunt for a button for my jacket, much less of such a big event like this. But I hate to assume that the person in charge gave me the impression that she has influence my decision.
Never mind about that. Booking the wrong place is never a big deal because I could just invite less people. But my colleague has totally forgotten to book the venue to begin with. I reminded her last week and she went oops. And oops there is no venue to begin with. I asked for two venues and I got none. I was not in a panic mode yesterday but I was quietly angry though I was feeling the opposite of a rage. So I asked this colleague why cant we get the venues. She replied it was because the person in charge rejected. And yesterday she came telling me "I asked her to book last week." If I'm mean and bossy, I would have corrected her and say "I asked u to do so in June/July." So instead of who correcting who, I asked her based on your experience what solution would you recommend to me. She said "I don't know."
Fair enough. I will remember your actions until the day I die. Just don't ask me any favour from me.
The person in charge of approving the venues booking - who I have mentioned in the third paragrapgh - was so blur. I asked her many times if the venues on the event date is available, she said yes and if I would like to book, please refer to my stupid colleage, which I did. The only problem is if you know the venues that I have wanted have already been booked by the time you tell me to refer to my colleague, why the hell you didn't tell me? I asked her last week if she could refer me to any other venues. She suggested to change the date which I can't, and then she said she cannot help me. So I angrily joked with her "So do you want me to let my 200 guests to hang around at the foyer" until 9 am when the hall is empty, she said indirectly yes. She was extremely not helpful. She only knew to tell me that the venues have been booked. So buzzoff.
So with all courage and means, I called up the person who booked my wanted venues, and explained to her my woes. She was kind enough to relocate the lectures for one of the wanted venues. It was certainly a feat; the schedules we have is extremely crazy and there is no space to replace an activity. Instead, she removed all for me for that day.
So one problem down. I just need another venue...
I called up the IT department and enquiried if they could let participants of one venue to see what is going on in another: my backup plan for not being able to get the largest venue. Before I could finish my sentence, I was referred to another staff who does the venue booking. Being tired of being pushed around, I fired him with my sarcasm "Would the lo ku po (unmarried virgin) be able to solve IT problems?" To be frank, I found her so helpless when she was trying to bind a book. I ended up doing the binding for her in 5 minutes.
And this afternoon, I somehow got back on my colleague who has forgotten to follow up with the booking since June/July. One of the activities I'm in charge has been switched with another day, and this colleague doesn't know. That's not the story. And then another colleague came over to my room and asked me for a more detail explanation of my planned schedule. I informed her the dates and activities that her boss is involved until one date. She went blank. I told her nicely that this date is where the students and their supervisors do fieldwork together and this date is where the students meet the supervisor somewhere in the building for only one hour. And then she went OK and went out to meet my neighbour who forgotten to make the venue booking. And then both women - the lady went OK and my neighbour - stormed into my room and the neighbour demanded to inform her of any changes so she could update the list. With a cool look, I turned away from her and opened a minute meeting we had together with my boss to discuss about the schedule and told her "You were with me in that meeting on that date. Did you not hear my boss said what's the plan for that date?" She went silent. The truth is I have already told her 3 times about the mistakes of the schedule. I saw this mistake long time ago but do I need to tell her that there is mistake for the fourth time? I can be consulted at any time. I don't mind if you come to me for 100 times but please don't give away the schedule without my proofread. I'm still alive you know.
What is bothering me now is I have been telling another colleague about how these neighbour and the person in charge of booking venues worked. I said they are inefficient indirectly, which I regretted so much of saying that. I can't eat dinner well because somehow I felt it was wrong to do so no matter how inefficient they are. Because it makes me a person who likes gossipping and I'm not like that. I guess I just want someone to listen to me.
I came home with a tired soul. I was just craving for chocolate because I needed a break. My brain is just so tired.
Have a break with meowing.
I'm so not productive

Jolenesiah requested to see my computer screen and here it is.
Yes, I'm watching youtube while typing letters. And my MSN messenger box is somewhere behind the two programs. I'm watching KAT-TUN's Rescue live.
