Back from the staff retreat in Bangkok!
NO I DIDN’T SHOP TILL I DROPPED.
Work tomorrow (sigh), so good night everyone!
Off to Bangkok for a staff retreat this weekend!!!
Half day today, and the office is almost deserted……
The brother is back!
VERY busy day.
Singlehandedly proofread and corrected the mistakes in the fullbook for our February issue.
Before I left, Boss suddenly warned me that March will be an extremely busy month……
Very busy day so I popped over to Housemen’s Canteen opposite my office for a quick lunch, and found a seat by the window. Had just finished my yong tau foo when I suddenly looked up, and spotted a large bird soaring high in the sky. Probably an eagle. I looked away for a moment, then turned back, but it had disappeared.
Lunching alone can be extremely cathartic.
Brother was supposed to enlist on the fourth day of Nainai’s wake (9 February). My dad couldn’t leave the wake, so the rest of the family – all the women – accompanied the brother on his big day.
Today was the last day I could bombard my graphic designer MY with emails, more emails and calls because he is leaving his company soon!
So from tomorrow onwards I will have to bug his replacement instead!
When I was 12, I could not ever imagine being 24.
Now that I am 24, I cannot ever imagine being 36.
Well, at least one of them, anyway.
Snippet of an MSN convo with Ahgong just now:

Handbag: monthly bazaar held under the MRT track near my place
Shoes: Americaya, Isetan (You can’t see them but they’re really low black pumps! :P)
Everyone commented on my gigantic gold ‘medal’! :D I went back and forth debating whether I should buy it during the Mango sale last month. So glad I got it in the end! And I got my dress from the Mango sale way back in July 2008!
I love Mango sales!!! :D
Since we all had to spend the greater part of four days at Nainai’s wake, I got the chance to catch up with my cousins. Since quite a few of them are around one and a half decades older than me, they told me lots of things I never knew about.
