Things that I know for sure are these : I have learnt a lot about life, made lots of new friends, grew more camaraderie, lost a few friends and found the missed ones. My greatest gratitude goes to those who reads my blog and leave words of encouragements for my postings in 2005.
One of the most significant things that happened in 2005 would be the TSC. It all started with the appreciation on Sepet and admiration towards Yasmin Ahmad that brought us all together. The other would be when at last I got to get my life back together. For 7 months I just let my life went with the flow and struggled to survive all the barriers (and a few barricades I might say) when I finally ended up having a new job. My contract is said to be continued but am not certain for how long at the moment.
Thank you so much for those who have always been there for me.I certainly couldn't repay all the good times, the great talks and the romantic moments (if applicable).You guys know who you are ;)
As usual, no resolutions are made since it won’t last after a few weeks!
Things in the office are going smoothly especially in the last 2 weeks of December. Lots of people went for their holidays and only a few of us were left in the office. I should say that it would be the most peaceful time ever! But it felt a bit bored since I didn’t get to pull somebody's leg. Duh! During this period I realized a few things that I have learnt and use them as my practices since I started working here.
1.The dumber you are the better
This practice is essential especially when you have to deal with those who think that they have worked there since the stone ages so they know everything. If you can pretend that you never know how to switch on the light without ever having to show that you are disgusted with your own act then congratulations! You are in the right track to become the next most favorite staff in the office politics
2.Beware of the devils!
Make sure that you mix with the right group. Hence always mingle around to recognize the group that fit you the most. It might take some time but please be patient because it will definitely bring you a lot of benefits.Not only you will get the latest on grapevines but also some good shoulders to cry on.
If you are the type of person who can’t live without Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger or Google Talk then use the right tool so that you wouldn’t be detected by the firewall set up by your company. But remember, when you start to chat in the office you will need to be very cautious and act up as if you really are busy especially when you start to type really fast when you have so many friends online. Make sure that you toss lots of paper works around and if anybody calls your office phone pick them up only after a few rings in order for you to convince your colleagues in the other cubicles. Practice your hand to move the mouse really fast so that you could change the window in 0.0003 seconds as per Gaban’s movement since it really is important especially when your boss suddenly comes over to your desk. You wouldn’t want to be caught red handed I can assure you that!
Lately I have the tendency to read 3 books simultaneously, a habit that I am not so fond of. At the moment I’ve been reading ‘tis by Frank McCourt, a year in the merde by Stephen Clarke and the poetry of Pablo Neruda which I read before I go to sleep every night. Well, I’m not so sure when I’m going to finish it since it is roughly 1000 pages!
Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha
It’s Hari Raya Aidil Adha today and here I am spending my nighttime in front of the PC. I went to my cousin’s house in the afternoon and got lost for almost an hour. I almost decided to go home when I realized that it wouldn’t be a meaningful Hari Raya if I celebrated it alone. Luckily I went on well and I came back with my stomach full of nasi himpit, rendang and laksa.
I called mum in the morning and she told me that she was actually on the bed and was about to get some nap. I wanted to speak to Tuk Wan but mum told me that he had been crying for 2 days long and refused to eat anything. So I thought it’d be best if I don’t speak to him since he would cry even more when he heard my voice.
Gebob was busy with her new baby, which has a very weird name. At first it sounded like some ice cream from Baskin Robbins but after a while it sounds like a plant. Kojeh as usual was having a ball with her in laws. I can’t thank god enough for Kak Chik and Kak Yong still don’t understand on how the calendar works or else they might have called me everyday to ask when am I going to go back to see them!
Whatever happened to Mariah Carey?
If you gals have seen the latest installments of Mariah Carey’s video clip you should have realized that she seems to be having inferiority complex. She has changed the size of her bust, her butts and god knows what else has she changed before. I suppose if we live without any regulations, social norms and religions restrictions she might as well make a video clip that looks like soft porn to show her assets! LOL!
I was young but I wasn't naive
