mood: guppy

My brain is a bit like that atm...this week has been so full-on! I have no been able to do very much of my work this week because of external circumstances interrupting my daily routine. It is like the world is having a fight with me. Hehe. I wanna do it everything and finish off my work but time is against me. I have discovered that the world only has 24 hours, and to use every hour as efficiently as you possibly can is..well...IMPOSSIBLE!

I tried to fit in a grp meeting at uni before heading to work, then TRAFFIC JAM for 40 mins! Bailed out on going to the grp meeting...went to work. BANG training, whole day gone...piles of work. But weekend is soo near...it's like I dont give a shit! My bf is the bestest cuz he drove me to work and tested his patience in the traffic, funny how we just make light of the situation and had fun.

Another early morning tomorrow at 6:45am at work! If anyone saw me now they would be running in the opposite direction screaming 'ZOMBIE'!! Cant wait to kick up my heels on the weekend...And the BOYZ 2 MEN concert count down!! Only hmmm...one month to go!! YAYYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!

Oh yea one more pt...I do not approve of the new nutang front pg with the popularity points..not only cuz I am not popular but I dont think it is in our culture to be 'popular'. In Australia...there really is no such thing as 'popular'...ppl respect those who are usually unique and interesting, but in a way that they do not go all out to become popular - but stay as themselves. I guess analysing this yr's big brother OZ too much..hehehe... it's all bout being nice, and being yourself. ;)

The mood has lightened
Friday. 8.5.05 4:23 pm
mood: exhausted!

I have been through a whole lotta shit this week and I am sooo glad it is the weekend. My muscles ache, my head is light, I almost fainted in the corridor today at work! I think I have burnt myself out... my hardwork has got me feeling ill... I have learnt my lesson to take it much easier next week. My desk at work looks like a bomb just hit it! So terrible...hahaha. And we have a 'clean desk policy' at DIMIA. :p But yea it's so not worth putting your health on the line..and in my case my sanity!

I came to work aout 6:45am this morning, my baby dropped me off..if not I would just fall asleep on the bus. At least I got a fantastic reference from my two favourite bosses in the world! hehe...and I will be going for a promo this sunday. See how it goes, whether hard work pays off or bullshit. :p I'm too honest to bullshit...so I have no choice but to go down the path of hardwork. ;) IT's in my family's blood for sure.

But sometimes working late nights and early mornings, makes you wanna break down. Makes you concentrate on that n not on the people around you. I'm sorry to my family and bf for not being there all the time...and often I put the pressure on you to understand me...

Anyway I have been talking about myself a lot lately! God it's boring! And mainly it is about bloody work. I hope I have something interesting on the weekend happen to me so I can blog someting new. :) Hope u doods all have a mega awesome weekend! STress less ;) I should take my own advice.

I miss the people I love
Tuesday. 8.2.05 8:21pm

mood: melancholy
listening to: how could this happen to me - simple plan

I miss Gail, Michelle, Kim and my brother most of all...it is difficult to do without these people who have meaning in my life. :( Talking to my brother on the phone and blurting out 'We didnt spend much time together'....really made me sad. But I can feel his tone, so home sick. Hearing Wayne's voice and my mum and dad giggling in the background. I wish he could be back here so we can talk and hang out like we used to. He is alone there in Canberra, since he left his gf in Msia. I really hope he is doing ok.

I miss my best friends too. I couldnt believe my ears when Michelle said she would be away from Perth for another 3 yrs! Bcuz she is working in the country, I'm happy that she has found a job that gives her so much opportunities but to take her away is unfair! Especially since lately she and I have been talking more, like we used to when we were 7. Ever since we went to uni, the closeness just dissapated. And Gail, to see her so upset on her last night in Perth, and the hug she gave me I will never forget. Melissa, Gail and I grouped hug and Mel said 'why r u so stupid Gail??'. Friends should never be a part and when they are they should always keep in touch. Why do these ppl choose to go to the country anyway?

Kim Lee, my 3rd cousin....I miss her.. i think it has been 2 yrs since I have seen her. Getting a sms from her always makes me smile. And to hear she is flying to Australia this yr lifted up my spirits until I found out she is going to Melbourne..million miles away!! *SIGH* Since my grandparents passed away I cant see myself going back to Ipoh, msia...even though Kim asked me to go during Chinese New year...

Why are friends like that? Love you and leave you...it's so sad. :( Gail asked each of us to make sure we would be in Perth when she comes back for good...hopefully then my heart will be at ease... But it's true absence makes the heart grow fonder..

The absolute need to bum
Saturday. 7.30.05 9:45pm
mood: slack

HAHA Im at home tonight! Surprise, surprise :) That has not happened in the past few months. I have either being out clubbing, out to a cafe, a 21st bday party or hanging around Fernando's house...I am so shocked myself I have nothing to do! Hehehe it feels really good actually being a bum, I have not had a weekend to myself for a long time. :) It feels nice to be around mum and dad once again.

My day consisted of:
- an afternoon nap
- surfing the internet
- starting my selection criteria
- eating junk
- gardening in the sun
- cooking with mum

It's sooo good after a full-on week. I got to chat to Tash online too! Yes I was finally on MSN! I never chat! hehehe...it's rare to see me there. :p My friends all asking me to go to Metro city but I did a white lie and said I was feeling sick. Haha. I'm so falling out of the clubbing scene hey... First weekend I wont be seeing F too...Im so out of routine. lol! Hp everyone is having a great weekend! Drop by and say hi! :)

My second home

Lim Fong & my bro

Family pic in King's park

I have done 3 nights of overtime this week! Crazy huh? My boss said to my colleague and I 'You girls must be the richest in the office'. That's funny cuz we both like to put our hands up for extra hours...it means more pay. But I wished we didnt get taxed so damn much! I'm not money hungry...though some ppl think that we chinese are...we are just hard working ;) It's just that my dad needs dental surgery done and I want to earn as much as I can to help out. We arent rich and an operation like that costs a FORTUNE!

Plus I hope to get promoted...so I have to work on my application this weekend so I can become an APS4. Ppl must think I am a workaholic, but yea...there's always a reason behind it. I dunno how I manage it but I have been able to see Fernando twice this week, and my friends tonight after overtime! It's gotta be full-on for me! Sometimes I like the rush of work and social life. But when it is quiet...I feel like I need to be doing something.

My bro came over from KL for 5 days and now he has left. Got to meet his new gf...she's ok. But I am generally not a very warm person...hehe I can be 'nice' but not 'warm', which is different. Maybe I dont click with her, a person has to interest me if I am to 'click' with them...they have to have interesting things to say, have unique personalities, open and able to be crude every now and then hehe..I'm sure she does but it's like I wont give her a chance *evil evon*. Or maybe it's cuz she smokes...hmmm...I'll post up pics soon.

Meet the parents
Sunday. 7.24.05 7:48pm
Yesterday I invited my boo to my parent's house, he was quite nervous and I dont blame him. It is sooo awkward those first fw moments, but I really hope both parties will feel more at ease as time passes by. My bro jst brought his gf to Perth and she has been hanging around with him and the fam, it is nice to have an extra person in the picture...but sometimes it is 'different'. I would surely like to spend more time with 'just my family'....as I am not too open yet with the idea of introducing new ppl. It shouldnt be the case, cuz I would luv my fam to welcome Fernando into our house anytime. :)

I wished that the organisation was a bit better to meet the parents, but it was all so fast. They have met him before and know who he is. But they dont feel they need to ask him the questions. I guess parents just dont want to make the person feel 'put on the spot'.

My frens and I were chatting too about when we have kids in the future that we have them play together, and if it was a girl & boy we would try and match make them :p It is a nice thought to have our friends as in laws, becz I would know them better and have no worries about them... heehe...I would luv it!!!
