all in a day’s work

I’m very amused by the fact that I’m probably the only one in the entire office who has a valid reason to be surfing Facebook during office hours, because I’ve been tasked with establishing our official presence on the social networking site.

And I tell you, it’s a one real challenging task! :P


on soap in hospitals

Snippet of an MSN conversation with the-almost-Dr Tan this afternoon:

[::.aurora.constance.vienna.genevieve.aeric.reuben.::] says:

<< N.A.N.A. >>       [upholds her love and trust and faith in Him alone.]  [::.aurora.constance.vienna.genevieve.aeric.reuben.::] says:

~ * j u n * ~ [ the princess of peach blossom island ] says:

<< N.A.N.A. >>       [upholds her love and trust and faith in Him alone.]  [::.aurora.constance.vienna.genevieve.aeric.reuben.::] says:

it’s the placebo effect. they’re lulled into thinking they get better soap cos it comes in a bottle so small that their poor eyesight and weak grip makes it impossible to extract any of the 5 pathetic drops of soap
hence forcing them to use… u guessed it! the wall soap

reptilian tendencies

Just now when I walked into my office compound, I spotted a lizard sunbathing on the stone edge of a grass patch, and moved towards it. Naturally it disappeared into the bushes.

Then I saw another lizard crossing the carpark, and proceeded to chase it.

a little distraction

Our executive director Dr L came down to our office on Tuesday. I heard him enter the server room-cum-spare office, which is located near my workstation. Suddenly, I turned around, and spotted a little fellow padding behind him.

I do find people patronise me a little, but no matter what age you are, if you’re a professional, then you’re a professional.

For a split second I thought increment was ice cream cement!

taking a break

Am down with flu, so I’ve taken MC (two days!) from work for the first time in my life.

(Yes, there is indeed a first time for everything!)

I’m quite happy really, cos I’ve picked a great time to fall ill.

Now sitting by my lappie answering work emails -_-”’,  and waiting for my medicine’s drowsy side effects to kick in……

on a roll

Annnd…… we’ve gone to print this afternoon!!! :D

you must do the thing you think you cannot do

Boss said a couple of weeks back that I probably wouldn’t be able to send the March issue for printing by the 22nd, but I did.

Stayed back till 7 pm yesterday and made it happen.

Gotta thank my graphic designer CX and my printer J who stayed back with me in their respective workplaces.

It’s 9.30 am now and the colourproofs are in the house! :)

green, black and white

Yesterday evening my brother went out for dinner at Downtown East with his friends. He wore a dark green tee, white berms and a black cap.

Raffles colours! I was very amused. 

something i would totally say


蒙古大军攻略而来,距襄阳尚有数百里之遥,但尼摩垦等一千武士谍探,却已先抵襄阳城外四周。这一晚他原拟在羊太傅庙中歇宿。却在庙外听得了郭芙姊妹 的对答,不由得大喜若狂,心想郭靖虽非襄阳城守主帅,但襄阳的得失实系于此人,若将他两个爱女俘获了去,纵不能逼他降服,却也可扰乱他的心神,实是大大的一件奇功。他听郭芙认出了自己,说道:“郭大姑娘眼力好的,多年不见,你长得更加好看的。大家免伤和气,这就乖乖随我去的!”

is there a west?

One of my favouritest essays on culture. First read it way back in J1, and finally located an official copy online today……!

is there a west?

mind over matter

Zara has such infinitely covetable clothes that it took me all the willpower I had to return everything to the sales assistant (who looked kinda disappointed ;) ) and leave the shop empty-handed.

But I’ll be back. Definitely. I’ll be back.
