a fren's belief.

just got to know that one of my ex-colleagues just ROM-ed and they have this very sweet blog where she posted how it started and ended in a very sweet proposal, which made me cry actually. and she ended with quite a beautiful quote which goes somewhere along this line :

"God shows you the wrong ones before giving you the right one"

tat is so wayyy touching.

Official statement on Emulsifier 471

"E471 is the EU E number designating mono and diglycerides derived from fatty acids. These fatty acids can be from animal or vegetable sources. Most mono and diglycerides used as ingredients in the US are from vegetable sources. We have received confirmation from all suppliers that the mono and diglycerides used in Starbucks products are vegetable-derived. Therefore, all of the mono and diglycerides used as ingredients in Starbucks products are derived from vegetable sources and are appropriate for use by Muslims."

the absence.

i foresee that when i will be absent from workplace pretty soon, chances are my hand phone will ring. it will be only for a day, and colleagues are already repeatedly asking me "when is the date?" , checking calendars and having supervisor whom asked for my leave days entitlement! come on, my absence will not cause all servers/network to go down, definitely right? or perhaps, it might! HAHA.

ah! we will be getting off for a short holiday during the vesak weekend to where-else buttttt M.E.L.A.K.A. both my parents hail from Melaka/Malacca so its like all around and back to the roots.probably, we should consider visiting the historic places in addition to the usual makan/shopping/lepak itinerary.

btw, i didnt think of this. i was reading an article in Today to why trains were so notoriously crowded (definitely, incomparable to Tokyo's ). probably those who used to hail cabs to work are avoiding them now. dammit. what i think of cabs is that, hail it when i really need it. need, not want . other that, i will drag myself to mrt/bus. just like a "want" list and a "need" list.

my "need" list contains

my "want" list contains
1. my prince charming (wait! probably, this should move up to the list above? haha)
2. a sponsored car ( maybe one that fits myself, 2 passengers behind, no more than that) which sadly, wont come true!
3. whatever i have seen/window-shopped

how it feels.

now i know how it feels when

1. a car cuts into the lane we are driving in WITHOUT signaling first
(cause i have seen ezie/farah (ooppsss!) when they were in those times, haha)

2. pedestrians slowlyyyyy taking their own sweet time crossing like their father's road (huhu, direct-translation yo!)

3. approaching JAYWALKers

weekdays were filled up with nothing but work. friday nights are heaven for me and in fact, weekends too. all these aching and tiring parts of my body at last get their retreat, every friday nights that is. i did not leave the place without having these 2 items below, at all times.

potato salad with little slices of chickn ham + caramel frappucino

and weekends are the family time/lepak rilek chilex/washing/ironing.

we had 2 birthday celebrations this month, for little niece whom turned 4 and little nephew, 7.

we received a treat from niece's mummy at Lestari @ Yishun. its our normal coffeeshop, opposite a school which i cant quite recall the name. it was such a sumptuous treat with the sotong balls, various fishes, prawns and shark fin soup anddd lotss more. seriously, i was bloated ( like i have not once ? ). nevertheless, it was an enjoyable gathering.

and few days back, it was a small celebration at nephew's place :)

and when little niece made a remark about the cake, it was as though time froze for 5 secs!

Niece : Mummy, the cake not nice. (with the sad face)

*time froze for 5 secs*

Her Mummy : Why did you eat with the fried chicken ?

All : ????

oh, actually we were in nephew's place and actually his mum bought the cake for him. so yeaa, all we could do was to keep silent. hehe. i didnt even dare to look at my sister and her husband. malunyer.

how fast time flies. it will be THE big 3 for me in a couple of years. where is my prince charming ? come here toaddy, lemme kiss you. haha.

the body shop is having biggggg-time sales at Causewaypoint Atrium. i think it ends tomorrow, Sunday. now that they have high % discounts, i managed to grab some items which i find too expensive without them.

and today, we had a mass/bash blowing-out candles for the 4 little kids. so, all salivas might have been the magical ingredient to the cake. no wonder it tasted very delicious haha. it was a clean out.

back to civilization.

not exactly was back from somewhere where you cannot find food or civilized people.but back to my comfort-stress-free-now-that-i-can-breathe zone!hmmm, where shall i start heh. hmmm. i am now the official driver. i get to launch words like si*l, switchable * to 'a' or 'o', infront of my parents. i am implementing what we call an effective time management and priotizing workload/cases at workplace which hopefully it will benefit me in the long-run. stress level has been increasing by days. i am now in the phase like you people, yesss, normal working adults, whom some might be in the very critical state where badddd words are hurled at one another hehe. mine is not critical as yet. huuh. what i need now is to HIBERNATE before getting onto the speedboat soon. REST is the ultimate word. i managed to spend a few hours on friday night, at my favorito starbucks outlet with caramel frappucino and potato yummy which was so yummyyyy.

oh. cousin was away for honeymoooooninnggggg. and wat she got when she came back,a swollen ankle. alamak. drink more susu lah gal.

entertainment-wise, i have not caught up with ANYYYY latest box office. the last i wanted to watch was Stepup 2 but i have no time for that yet. i remember that i was planning to take up keyboard classes. so that i can buy a casio keyboard and make lots of noise in my room. by then, i will have to build up sound-proof walls in my room. shettt. that plan has to be revised. probably, this time not that course, but probably another that might help me alottttt.

oh btw, i love dan and young slot @ 98.7! they are seriously jokers mannnn.

anddd what i have anticipated, it came true. there was an archived post which i brought up on inconsiderate humans who still read newspapers in crowds. yesss, finally there was a shouting drama last friday. between a makcik and a chinese guy. but his is a BOOK. nice ! all that i can say is, he was at fault. and it was already his fault but yet, still trying so hard to defend himself. kiasu. this too, applies to the driver who was infront of dad's car, earlier today who changed lane numerous times when we were on our way back to singapore customs. ulimate kiasu. i am so ashamed of kiasu singaporeans (KSS), similar to KNN. by the way, i wonder where Mas Selamat is. do you?
