happy chrismurf

well, i haven't been up to much since my last update.. which was about eileen's leaving.
i have a very routined life and hence, there's nothing much to blog about.
anyhow, a quick log"

15th december: the little princess' birthday celebration at maccas.

with her totally spies (really, don't ask) cake

yes, one of her friends decided to help her blow out the candles.

headed to glo after that with lin and sara and their friends. photos from this night will not be uploaded as there are a shitload of photos on this post already.

17th dec: woke up at 6am to send my parents to the airport for their phuket holiday. that night followed my older sister as my little sister's guardians for her party. (yes, i know my little sister has more parties than i do)
i learnt a few things from her party:
i) kids nowadays are waaaaaaay spoilt.
ii) clowns are actually pretty rich. the dude who was playing mr. pipi the clown drives an s-class mercedes. i shall never look down on clowns ever again.

the rest of the week was spent baby sitting my little sister as well as a few outings with friends. none of which i have any photos.

18th december: eileen left. had to be at the airport at 6.30 am. i made it.. sort of. i did oversleep a bit.
her sendoff party. by far the biggest i've ever seen. and the noisiest. this photo is only of half the ppl that came. but i guess, considering the circumstances..

22nd december: i went for my office party. brought pasta for the potluck and famous amos cookies for the gift exchange. i got a pen in return. meh.
later in the night i went for the ECF christmas dinner at penang club. that's my older sister's church by the way.
good food, pretty company, passable entertainment.
i brought (more) cookies for the gift exchange and got three notebooks with bible quotes in return.

pastor joshua and his family. his wife, nani, and his kids, ben, (damn forgot his name) and allie.
they're at the same table as me, hence me having photos of them.
i actually have photos of the other pastors family somewhere. (keyword here being somewhere)
and, they're a pretty family. i like pretty families.
especially nani. and she's really nice too.

me and my older sis. her makeup isn't really well applied tonight.

the kids having a spot of fun.

left the party around 11pm to pick my parents from the airport.

24th december: chrismurf eve.

wat i wore for chrismurf eve.
i think i look like a christmas bobble.
my older sister disagrees here.

i was supposed to go have steamboat dinner with sooch and porky and etc. etc. at 7.30pm but due to some unforseen circumstances (bloody furniture mover dudes being a good 4 hours late and arriving to move furniture at 9.30pm which nicely coincided with the fact that my parents had a christmas eve dinner to attend which left me and my older sis having to tell furniture mover dudes where to put the furniture) i couldn't catch dinner with my friends.
btw, thanks for calling. =) even if you couldn't do anything to help, at least i vented my frustration on someone. hahaa. wait, that sounds wrong -_-"
for once, i shall bless the fact that sookie is always a couple of hours late. when i called her, she was just leaving so she dropped by to pick amy (who was overnighting at my place) and i up, stopped for a bite at northam beach cafe (the rest had already eaten) and then went on straight to momo to meet the rest of my mgs group.
i also stole ri's santa hat.

momo was fun. till like... a couple of my friends got a bit too tipsy for their own good. one sobered up quick enough. thankfully.
i wanted to go glo to meet the rest of my friends but having already coughed up so much dough for momo, coughing up the cover charge for glo was kinda.. well.. i'm too stingy. and broke. =(
so didn't meet them in the end.
left around 1.40am as my friend (obviously) had clubbed enough. went back to my place where she slept it off.

for the christmas countdown

with amy who has already started turning a lil' bit red =p

sookie, belle, sooch (half hidden by me, oops), me, amy and nianz (who's kinda totally cut off. photographer's fault, that)

sookie, me (and the stolen santa hat which they ended up putting on my head for the night) and amy

high school girlfriends: sooch, suli, belle, porky, me, amy, nianz and sookie

sooch (blocked again), belle, ning khang (dude with the opened mouth), me, amy, sookie and nianz (who's cut into half again)

everyone's finally in!


i awoke on christmas day horrigibly sick. no, it was not a hangover. i didn't drink enough to even be high. i blame it on the lack of sleep.

had the ECF church ppl come over to have a christmas party at my place that night. due to my horrigibly sick condition (i have a terrible cough, i have lost my voice and currently sound like a man, which if you know me and my sortof squeaky voice, is an amazing feat, and have a swollen eye which probably came from my couple of days of not sleeping) i skipped most of the party, coming down in spurts long enough to grub for some turkey, lamb chops, and the various potato dishes.
no photos of me for the night. hehe. i will however upload photos of the christmas dinner if i get them.
i got a top from my sister, a bottom from sookie and a card from my little sister. and numerous hugs from various others.
thankchu to all who made chrismurf a nicer affair.

my love card cum chrismurf card from my little sister.
and yes, that's a portrait of bloo.

new year's coming up.
the next time i blog, it will be 2007.

i don't really have any resolutions.
i just want my life to get be on track.
and to get rid of useless emotional baggage.
not that it's bad, understand. just.. useless.
however, i still can't wait to see what 2007 will bring.
hopefully, passage down to melbourne.
i wish a merry chrismurf to all my friends and family
and above all, a happier and more fulfilling 2007.

may the force be with chrismurf,

well, eileen's leaving in less than 24 hours.

i'm sorry that our friendship drifted after i left for kl. wait.. it was even before that. when i entered college. but it drifted farther apart when i left for kl.
sometimes, when you look back on life, you regret what you've done and what you've not.

i do regret not keeping in contact with you.

you were always one of the best friends i had when in school. always cheery and bubbly. always a friend - especially when i was sorely in need of one.

anyway, good luck and all the best in uk.
be well and we'll meet again someday.

may the force be with eileen..

by request

yea, as requested by few ppl, i shall blog about work.

yes, for those of you who don't know yet, the amazingly lazy and forever job-less smurf (yours truly) got a job as an audit trainee couple of weeks back.

so, my work involves checking through mounds and mounds of files, cheque stubs, sales and purchase invoices, inventory lists, ledgers, etc. i cross check it to the client's accounts and correct any mistakes i find. i do vouching to make sure the client isn't siphoning cash to his/her/their own pocket. i then find out how the client stands in the new financial year.
i also sometimes (although not yet.. i think couple of weeks from now) have to go do stocktake. i'm rather excited about that. THAT involves going to the client's factories and warehouses and do a physical stocktake on their inventory.
my work also involves a lot of secretarial work like answering phones, photostating what i need, shredding paper (no paper shredder in the office and we're being environmentally friendly coz we RECYCLE our own stuff), typing out letters, faxing letters to clients, etc.
it's a small office and hence, no secretaries. just auditors that multitask.

and since i'm a newbie, weilin (she's my handler *cough* sounds so.. CIA. haha) let me audit the files of a relatively small client (of course, she monitors my work and helps me out coz i'm rather dumb and dense at all this). so, after one week of auditing their stuff, i find myself woefully free (yea, i completed my very first audit! *bows* i shall of course ignore the fact that i didn't do anything bout tax and the other harder stuff)
freedom has its drawbacks. i've got nothing to do! reading mags is extremely hard coz i sit with my back facing the front entrance so clients can see if i'm NOT doing work (and hence i can't read mags). i can't use the computer (and hence, the internet) as i'm not important enough to have my own console. and so, i have found myself a new hobby. tarots.
yes, tarots. the book is small enough to hide among the files and so i am now the office 'sampo' and have taken over junny's spot *cough* (that sucks)
she tells me it means 'fortune teller'. i hope she's telling the truth. *lol* 'sampo' sounds awfully akin to 'sampat' and the 'sampat' one shouldn't be me. coz that particular spot has already been taken. *lol* found a tarot set in my office coz weilin got bored of it. yes, i now know the difference between 'death' and 'the sun' and 'the lovers' etc. as well as which is the worse card in the deck (and hence the worse omen of luck one can get) as well as the best. reminds anyone of divination?
my drawing skills have also improved. as i said, freedom has its drawbacks. you've got nothing to do!

and i also met the office's 'bond'. he's a greasy dude who wears crocs. yer, i know, nothing like bond. in-office joke. i've yet to get it.

and i shall be meeting ah-lee tomorrow. he's some dude who i've never met but for some reason, my colleagues (the girls) always make fun of him. makes me curious.

working isn't too bad. my colleagues are all extremely sweet, friendly and helpful. its easy to forget that you're the newbie who knows nothing at all there.
it's just kinda boring. i really really want to sleep in. it's holiday! =(

in the mean time, i shall leave you all with some photos of me during one of the meetups one of those days.

and the way your innocence tastes-

so, ej asked me to update.

i haven't really been up to anything lately.
i work all day. i come back. go out for dinner/supper with friends some of the weeknights. hang out with them more on weekends.

and a movie. once. shopping littered in between.

my life has become rather routined.

attended wei ming's birthday party couple of weeks ago where i overdosed myself with martell.
no, i did not get drunk. i was still very much capable of looking after myself, thank you very much. i turned white (again) apparently. hmm. wat else is new?

headed over to flix last fri night after checking queensbay out. both are below par.
queensbay looks like midvalley.
i've been too pampered by kl shopping. i should stop complaining.

went to ri's party the next day. sonia overnighted my place. that was fun. oh. and i overnighted her place the night before. got to catch up =)
and actually (mostly) dig up all her secrets coz she was rather pumped with bacardi, beer, whiskey and er.. did i miss anything out?

anyway... happy birthday ri and wei ming!

work-wise, it's ok. got a bit stressed out by it yesterday. working life's tough. definitely.
oh, and my heels pulled a mentos on me today. oh well. time to buy new shoes.

watched deja vu. the idea of the movie is good. the movie (near the ending) is not.

otherwise, that's bout it.
might be going to momo tomorrow. but.. i'm not sure bout that yet. coz. well. you know. that.

sometimes, i wish you'll just like.. just.. let me be.
and for once, not lecture/scold me. seriously.
i already try my best to live up to your rules and regulations.

i know this post has no photos. sorry. all photos i had from wei ming and ri's parties haven't been passed along to me yet.
will post them when i get them and i get around to it.
shall restraighten my hair again soon.
that and go to see my doc. apparently i might have a cancerous hamartoma.
no. i do not have cancer and will not get cancer.
go do your research on hamartomas. they might get cancerous LATER on in life. not yet.

well. that's it
this post sounds rather detached. apologies. i've been in a detached sort of mood lately.
thank you to those who have been around for me to destress on.

oh. and i'm being harassed by a phone stalker.
why do these things always happen to me?

to those of you whom don't know, my phone lines crossed with some dude's when i was trying to call sookie on her birthday (celebration day). and.. somehow, on wei ming's trip up to pg hill, my line crossed with that dude's again.
and now, he msgs everyday with the most absurd msgs.
a week ago: mind if i get to know you?
(when i call and go 'oh shit, the lines crossed again..' AND EFFING HANG UP, USE your brain. do i REALLY want to know you?!?!)
yesterday 'hi sayang. dah makan ke?'
and today. a picture msg of floating hearts and a msg professing his undying love. 'hi darling. i love you. do you love me?'
and so, i answered 'stop messaging me. the phone lines crossed previously. stop messaging. it's irritating.'
and then he answers 'whyla mess? (insert some malay gibberish here which i do not even try to comprehend) so you love me ke?'
i mean. WTF.
wat the hell is 'mess' suppose to mean anyway?

maxis has ruined my life. seriously.
don't get me wrong. i love all the girly stuff.. being called sweet stuff by my guy, those cutesy messages, etc.
but NOT by some weirdo. i HATE HATE HATE HATE this kinda weird ppl.
i am cursed with getting stalked by weirdos. for once, please, let it be a cute and charming person. for once. -_-"
is there any way to ban messages? like.. black list this dude?
