Another Week Gone...

the coming week will be the 5th..
no.. its not 49days yet so im stil in monotone clothings.
am feeling fortunate that this week is finally over.
i started Mon with a -ve news followed by Tue,
which i was happy for nothing.
and then Wed was really a terri-horigible day initially!
i couldnt find the damn Merchant Square!
was told to locate Riverside Point after i exit from B.
but i couldnt find the Riverside Point!
so i tried using my Maps on iphone to find Merchant Square!
thinking im going in the right direction,
i crossed the road & walked another 15mins b4 i check the Map again.
it wasnt refreshed immediately but after it refreshed,
by then i was seriously cursing under my breathe!
its no fun walkin with 2 blistered toes & 1 blisters heels!
did i mention i was walking under the broad daylight?!
walked back to the exit B which i came out from 25mins ago,
and locate the Merchant Square again!
the place which i could have reached within 15mins,
actually took me near to 45mins to arrive.
tell me how dumb can i be? -.-"
sorry, dumb is not the correct description.
i should say im a direction idiot.
anyway, i was cheated to go down thinking it was a cust svc post.
who knows it turns out to be yet another F.C post!
BIG SIGH! i made my exit & stand at a streetside pasting plasters.
my 2 poor toes was red from all the abrasion & blisters. ;(
sweating, make-up melting & pain from the toes made me super touchy!
lucky my bud was consoling me..
i still got a 2nd interview 2 look forward to!
dont be depressed & maintain a +ve attitude 4 the next!
was presented with a Eng & Chn test b4 the interview.
was told to do translation & grammatical error corrections.
WAH! testing my language leh!
i die with the property CHN-ENG translation ads.
terrace, north, south, freehold, extended renovation blah blah..
i duno how 2 phrase them in chn leh?
but i cheated abit by looking up how 2 write the words.
i type in hanyupinyin in iphone to check. ;x
afterwhich i was interviewed by 2 ladies.
both were v kind looking auntie to be honest.
they interview me in both chn & eng language too!
i think i kinda impress them with my flyin job incidents!
they were surprised by the type of pax i've dealt with so far..
took a cab home since it was drizzling when i left.
& hardly i wil entertain cabbie esp uncles!
he told me he've got a 18yo daughter who only grad frm ITE.
quoting what he said, "no future la.. faster get married better!"
i answered him, "even if married le u wil stil worry abt her? isnt it?"
he say, "aft she married, i let her husband worry abt her loh!"
HAHAHAHA! he even wish me all the best in my interview!
while takin the lift up, i strike a conversation with my neighbor!
the auntie was dog-walking, stayin at 23rd storey!
i asked her, "how old is ur dog? so quiet ah?"
auntie say, "4yrs old, very old liao.."
!!!!! "huh? 4yrs old consider old meh? mine already 10yrs leh!"

i duno why i was really in a mood like i strike toto!
is like i know i did well during my 2nd job interview,
i know i'll confirm get the job that kinda feeling!
Thur was spend recuperating at home..
my legs & arms were aching from doing too much jumping jacks.
and my toes.. i hafta let them rest b4 i wear covered shoes out again.

Fri, i went down to my 2nd job interview location..
was invited 2 go down discuss abt the job package & salary..
as predicted, they couldnt offer me my expected salary.
there's no way i can survive with the amount.
hence all i can do is 咬紧牙关继续找!
i dont believe i cant find a job which can pay me THAT amount!

celebrated cine's bdae over here!
as suggested by Miss Chan!

ordered a jug of hoegarden shared by 3 of us excluding Miss Wong.
i guess each of us is about 1 and a half mug?

the among of food we ordered!
very very heng! i suggest to Miss Wong that we share!
so the both of us only ordered 1 main dish!
even with 1 main dish & a big plate of side dish,
i couldnt even finish it! ;O
blame it on my ultra late lunch @ Mos.

presenting the Chocolate Amer cake from bakerzin!

the wordings on the piece of icing!
HEHEHE! hows the idea of Happy Quarter Birthday?! ;p

Belated birthday girl with her sunflower!
please always be & stay cheerful!

e 4 of us excluding Lisa..

after our fulfilling dinner, we walked over to the USS!
took photo with the USS globe (finally!)
fortunate enough to find a passer-by with photography skill!
he took really nice photos 4 us! ;D
definitely attempted the jump shots as well..
lalalala.. several failed attempts taken by Miss Wong!
full in the stomach & bladder, we call it a day & hurried to toilet.
was homesweethome thanks to Miss Chan's dearest!

jux took a bath, updated my diary & sent out resumes.
hence here i am updating my blog about my current week events.
i notice a drop in my readership..
is it due to me neglecting my blog which resulted in the drop? ;(
hate to repeat this but i hafta remind myself!
"unemployed people cannot anyhow spend $$!"
no matter how much i envy ppl going holidays;
or whosoever got new bags, new shoes, new clothes etc;
every1 around me dinning out & watching movies;
i am satisfied just to have home-cooked food, dl-ed dramas & my iphone.

i really enjoyed my weekends totally..
even if it means not going out & just staying at home.
because those are the only 2 days that both parents arent home.
i can finally escape from my mom's nagging!
every Mon-Fri, i just switch on my mute mode.
cant be bothered to answer her every single bombard question.
you could b wondering, even if i dont answer her,
she will still go on nagging & talking non-stop.
honestly, cant she tell i just need some peace & quiet?!

yesterday as mentioned, i answered more than 10 calls!
unbelievable but its 100% truth.
take a look at my phone records image below.

its gonna drive me nuts if it happens everyday.
am gonna prepare to go for my interview already.
lets hope it'll bring me good news.
so i can put a full stop to my job searching;
and also put an end to all random number phone calls.

Some things are better left unknown.

which is why i only blog selective topics.
and even if i really do blog about it, it'll be at elsewhere.
whereby i can choose to make it private or locked up.
better still, i've started my 2011 diary.
inside are all my happy & unhappiness recorded down.
on days where nothing much happened, it's left blank.

like 2dae for example, i woke up to answering phone calls.
not 1 or 2 but currently its at 6 phone calls.
might be due to the fact that i send out resumes over the weekends.
Mon's here where all people start working.
have got another interview arranged tomorrow at 2pm.
honestly speaking, im still standing at a cross junction.
i guess i can only do it hands on before i can make the decision -
suitable or not, try it before judging it.

still no regretful feelings..
not in terms of flying or shopping..
but in terms of seeing some people lesser..

How To Keep Your Girlfriend Happy?

1. One & Only. Your girlfriend should be your one & only. Make her feel special, k guys ? You’re lucky to have her even if she’s lucky to have you too. We know there are prettier out there but we like feeling as if we’re the only beautiful one in your eyes, & the only one you see.

2. “Ladies first.” No. That rule doesn’t apply to communication. Don’t wait for her call, text, IM, why don’t you try talking to her first for a change ? It’s thoughtful & sweet if a guy can actually do that.

3. Surprise her. You don’t have to drive an hour to her house at 3 a.m. to set off her name in fireworks in front of her window, but the little things are big things. A simple, good morning text, is more powerful than you think.

4. What insecurities ? For the love of God, all girls have insecurities. Please don’t point them out. For example, today I was looking at food & my boyfriend said “You eat a lot. You probably could beat me at a buffet.” WHAT. THAT’S NOT WHAT YOU SAY. Also, let her be herself. If she’s having a bad hair day, don’t make fun of her if it’s hurtful. Let her wear sweatpants & still feel pretty damn cute around you, even when she’s not looking her best.

5. Act the same around your friends. You’re not a real man if you completely blow off your girl in front of your homeboys. When you’re going to hang out with her & your friends you better not run off & leave her standing there to greet them like WUDDUPPP GUYSSS.. NO, you better at least walk with her & introduce her to them if you haven’t already. If you walk with her hand in hand, she’ll love it.

6. When she’s mad. Dude, you better try & get her back. Chase her, whatever it is, don’t let her walk away when she’s mad at you. It shows you don’t care enough to go after her. Don’t let her go.

7. Maintain. If you did a bunch of cute things with her before, try & keep it up. You don’t have to go all out everyday for her, but don’t stop completely just because you got her already.

8. Honesty. If you lie to her, you’re going to have one hell of a time regaining that trust because she’ll start questioning everything you’ve said or done for her, no matter how small that lie was. Fess up or get lost.

9. Trust. If your girl really doesn’t like one of your friends, trust, she has good reason to. Girls’ intuition -shrug- So don’t go hanging with your homegirl all the time if you know your girlfriend doesn’t like that bitch. She usually won’t hate for no reason. Respect her.

10. Love her. That’s all

How Small Details Meant More Than Big.

This one time I painted a living room with a girl.

This was a handful of years back. It was about eight months before the huge, flame-out of a breakup. That day, though? That day we painted the living room? It was pretty uneventful. We painted my parents living room for $50 between us and a pizza. That was it. I think we watched Anchorman or something after that.

But it still holds as one of the most indelible memories I have. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not still in love, it happened, it was good, it ended, and we’ve both moved on. But I’ll never forget that day. Because it’s never, in the long run, about the grand gestures. You can fly across the world and show up on her doorstep with a rose in your teeth and a ring in a little velvet box but I can guarantee you that - more often than not - she’s going to remember the time you built the birdhouse in the back yard, or what have you, a whole lot more.

Life wasn’t meant to be taken in large movements. The next day will inevitably arrive, you’ll sleep, and the moment will have passed. But when you have a hundred thousand small moments, you can step back and appreciate the picture a lot more than metaphorically blowing your load on some grand moment that, in all honesty, look, you’re not Bruce Fucking Springsteen, you’re not going to be able to blow everyone’s mind every single night. You’re not Romeo and/or Juliet. There’s no reason to drink the poison together in some flame-out gesture. So that leaves us with the small stuff. It’s all about the detail.

That’s what love is. Attention to detail.

And the moment will end. And then things will get boring. And it might get a little quiet. And it might all end horribly. And you might hate eachother at the end. And you might walk away from eachother one day and never speak again. But that’s just how it goes.

But she’ll remember the time you held the door open for her on your first date. She’ll remember the time you laughed at her impression of the landlady. She’ll remember the time you stayed up all night that first time. She’ll remember the small things a lot longer than the big ones.

But everything ends. And I’ll tell you why you have to make the small things, the small moments count so much more:

One day, probably a while longer from now, when old age takes ahold of someone, she might just only remember your smile. Everything you ever did together, every second, every moment, every beat, every morning spent in bed, every evening spent together on the sofa, all of that - gone. Everything you ever did will be reduced to the head of a pin. She won’t remember your name. She’ll just remember your smile, and she’ll smile. She won’t know why. It’s a base, gut reaction. But she’ll smile, uncontrollably, and it will come from somewhere so deep as to know that you touched her on a primal, honest, and true level that no scientist, scholar, or savant could ever begin to explain. There is no more. There is nothing else. There is just this: She’ll remember your smile, and she’ll smile.

And you know what? That’s all that really matters in the end.

so ytd i sent in afew resumes for job hunting..
am waiting patiently to get called.
there's 1 that im pretty interested since its at Toa Payoh.
and 1 of my friends on fb is a head-hunter.
ask me to send in my resume to a given email add.
got called in the morning to go down for an interview at 3pm.
luckily i did my research this time round.
she told me im interviewing for a SALES position. (???)
true to what she say, its a FINANCIAL CONSULTANT position!
previously is Great Eastern, now is Prudential.
honestly speaking, i've had enough of such job intake LAH!
called her up to turn down the interview,
yet she continue calling me time & again to persuade me.
persistent is good, but please use it wisely!
speaking of that, let me present 1 of my top hated food in CNY..

is this call bamboo shoots?!
not 100% accurate but 1 thing for sure i hate this.
the smell & the taste is so yucks!! ugh!
after which here's another 2 of my fave food..

鸟蛋! though i know they're high in cholesterol!
taste awfully nice with ketchup!

baked beans! from canned food i know..
heat it up & it taste great with rice/porridge lohx..
easy peasy convenient food to go with when parents not at home.

onion duck from my auntie!
every year w/o fail on Chu Yi of CNY,
we're go over my auntie's house & enjoy eating this!
this year however, we didnt..
only had it last wkend thanks 2 my cousin! :)

tadah! abalone-galore!
hahaha mostly from Hock Hua since my mum like it.
there's e newly launched 1 right on top which taste superb!
12 small pieces of abalone in a bottle.
transparent instead of can.. innovative eh?
u can c the abalone from outside!

had our steamboat dinner finally!
been craving for it since Chu Xi until now..
everyone is happy except me.
u happy. u happy. she happy. he happy. but i no happy.

was trying to fix up the stand fan before the steamboat.
was going to be 90% done when my sis's bf said he can help me out.
thinking that im able to fix up the fan myself was so wrong!
ended up he helped me out with fixing it,
and now i know how to fix a fan myself in future!
the steps are actually similar la!

due to complain but other ppl, i put up the curtain in my room.
been several years since i last have curtain in my room.
last night i tried closing it all but my room was so dark!
i could hardly endure it so i opened up a small gap.
only close up the gap this morning to block out the sunlight.
whoa~ i can laze in bed longer with it.. no good no good!

i've only got 2 pix to share taken during my grannie's wake.
i doubt u guys would wanna see more of such pix right?

snapped by my younger cousin.
inside was me & my elder cousin twitter-ing!

who knows, my grannie passed away.
so i didnt celebrate CNY for 2 consecutive year.
only finally stepped out of my house on 3rd day of CNY.
& its a family thing to watch movie & dinner after.
we caught The Green Hornet as requested by my father.
ermm its just a soso movie imo.
so lets skip the movie session instead.

we opt for Soup Restuarant!

this chix is 1 of their signature dish!

comes with veg as well,
it supposed 2 wrap the chix with veg,
eat it in a healthier way!

thats e way to go...

Salad Prawnnnnn!!
i wanted this over Tofu Prawn.
all bcux of the salad sauce only!

fried french beans shrimps & minced meat

sliced fish with ginger & spring onions

herbal soup to sum it all up.

it adds up to less than $100 for 4 of us!
not sure if u consider this meal expensive thou?

but anyway i gotta go rush my hkg drama already.
i cant plug off the earphone set,
else i'll be greeted by tons of nagging from my mom.
seriously.. non-stop & even though im not answering her,
she can continue to talk on & on & on...
