dunno since when, i have become an unofficial foster. or is it fosterer?

ashley the queen who brought balance to the household (somehow her presence made everyone mind their own business), has been adopted.

last night, a boy by the name of "white tip" came.

can you guess why he is named "white tip"?

will post pictures soon. correct answer gets a prize! (where are you, catdonna??)

weird dream

2 nights ago, i had a really strange dream.

i dreamt that my current next-door neighbour cornered me, violated me, and forced me into prostitution.

i have to say that for the last 33 years, i have never had a dream as such.

my confidante at work said that subconsciously, i must be feeling very suppressed.

i dont usually believe in dreams, but i am not surprised if it were true.

it has been an unethical working environment for the last 2 months.

more later. and also got juicy stuff about ceo and pa.

who's the evil boss

i have a shocking and not too pleasant announcement to make.

i sacked my only staff on 1 nov.

yes, people asked, why dont you give her a chance? i am sure she could be guided. she needs the job.

blah blah and blah

well, my conscience is clear. i could sleep well at night before and afterwards.

i have given her way too many chances. i have tried the soft approach, the hard approach.

i am very glad i made this decision. especially so after sorting out her stuff afterwards (mind you, i have to do her work till new staff is found).

she has not followed up on a lot of things, even though i have spelt out very clearly in writing and verbally!

good bye, alice!

brand new cat

overall, it was an almost uneventful grooming session (me and hubby stayed for the whole time for fear things may turn ugly, in case, humans get injured!).

the session started with shaving of the belly hair... not bad, ashley could keep still.

help... i am getting violated!!!...

then, it was a quick clip of the nails, and trimming of overgrown paw fur.

just when we thought we could relax and go get a cup of coffee...

wAIL..... wAIL.... HISSSSS.... HISSSSS.... KAO PAY..... KAO BU....

it was bathing time, and ashley did not like it at all. she tried to bite the groomers! (wonder if it was usual for cat grooming session to have 2 groomers - 1 to cut and the other to sayang and massage the cat most of the time)

then, just when the ordeal was over, the fur trimming session. by then, ashley had a "muzzle" over her head and mouth...

end result...

holiday's over

i am going back to work on wednesday...

tomorrow... ashley's grooming day...

will take pictures!

Sunday, September 02, 2007



i am craving for laksa, nasi lemak and chicken rice!!!!

i shall pig out soon... 2 weeks from now...

ironically, in spite of what happen to most people, i think i will put on weight instead of lose weight, since i have nothing to do at home, except eat, sleep, eat, sleep.

no need to spend $$ on slimming

slim down by 5kg in less than 4 weeks!


in the last 3 weeks, i have lost almost 5kg. thanks to working till 9pm everyday, and staff resigning on me so i can work even later.

for the record, since i held the reign of my dept, there has been 3 resignation and 1 restructured.

am i a slave driver or what? not that the resignees have ever stayed late. the one staying late is moi hor...


was pleasantly surprised i could fit into my levi's jeans once again.

no need to go shopping for new clothes liao.

热浪岛 over long weekend

ok, i am one of those snobs that dont like to go 邻国 for holidays, preferring the likes of 1st world countries like 日本.

however, since it's been a loooong time since i had my last holiday (read : aug 2006) and stranded with a cursed job (read : more shit comes when old shit is cleared), i took up friends' offer to join them over national day weekend to visit pulau redang.

other than the treacherous long overnight coach journey, redang is one beach resort island that you wont be able to do anything there, but relax!


the breeze, the beach, the coconut trees, the hammock.

see pictures for evidence ^-^

got video also...

even though it is becoming more and more commercialized like tioman, i was pleasantly surprised that things there are so much cheaper. perhaps it's bcos redang is in the state of terengganu. people are simplier and friendly, with an almost kampong-like innocence.

for a price of RM329 for 3 days 2 nights stay including meals, snorkelling trips over 2 days, it is awarded **** by ksn =-=

resident cats at redang beach resort
btw, they only appear at the canteen during lunch and dinner times (not breakfast or tea)

word of the day

mo2 kam1 ye3

is what????

Saturday, August 04, 2007

i need to pick up a 4th language

to me, cantonese is very difficult. of course, those canto serials i can understand maybe 60%.

however, business cantonese is a totally different ball game.

i dunno whether i should be proud or not - my japanese is better than my cantonese any time.

especially pronounciation. you know, some speak cantonese with a hokkien accent.

well, i am one of them :(

fortunately, i want to boast that i can sing cantonese songs without (90%) hokkien accent.

i think my new ceo is getting a kick out of hearing me speak.

and he speaks so fast... he's quite cute, by the way :-))

help, anyone? canton pixie!!!!???....

changes in the workplace

so exciting...

first time in my life i feel really energized, in a pool of shit (not literal)!

i am enjoying my work, not that it is easy, cos there's really a lot of shit. inventory's in a mess, no proper procedures, high turnover of staff..

i finally feel i can make a difference...

i will be participating in a restructure exercise..

time to kick some butt!

ps sad thing is i wont be able to go to japan as planned in nov...

bitchy witchy bitch

something happened to me at work. dont think it has happened to any one of you..

here goes...

the new financial controller (mid-thirties, around my age) saw one of my staff (whom she disliked, for whatever reason) skyping her temp boy, and my staff (let's call her "A") defamed her. cos earlier FC made one of her girls (let's call her "J") cry.

FC printed out the skype history, which consisted of 2 pages, and shot straight to HR room.

of course i was called into my boss's room, with FC and HR director, and the 2 pages of skype history.

women are the pettiest creatures on earth! in that 2 pages of skype, mostly harmless chatting, consisted of one liner, A saying FC was a bitchy witchy bitch.

thanks to A, i was lectured for not taking my staff into hand and blah blah blah... of course i had to say she was very irresponsible and unprofessional, blah blah blah...

i looked back and wondered what i would have done - prob nothing, cos when there's instant messaging, there will be gossip...

ps FC is really a double-headed snake, as confirmed later by J. J has tendered her resignation...

Saturday, July 21, 2007

i lost weight!

wah... if i knew getting the flu for one week can result in losing 3-4kg, i wouldnt need to spend that kind of money to go for slimming lo...

do take care people, flu bug is very resilient.

i can be labelled as MC queen already. work for 3 months, took 5 days mc liao.

stress plus crapping my style to micro-manage incompetent and new staff caused this.

i'll share more over the weekend, over a cuppa and perhaps after a nice traditional indonesian massage... aaaaahhhh....

Sunday, July 01, 2007

i did eeeeet!!!

wah, cannot sleep tonight.

i actually played a frame of 9 ball with reigning world pool double champion, and beat him!!!

nevertheless, it was a good night. he was super choon man!

see my eyes, just star studded... ahahaha...
