The busy days

It's been quite a busy weekend for me. As CNY is coming to a near, so are the performances. Lion and dragon shows are abundance. So is Kung Fu/Wushu performances. Places I've performed on Saturady (in order) - Centre Point, Jaya Supermarket, Spectrum Shopping Mall and at Centre Point (again). On Sunday, it was Low Yat Plaza, Centre Point, Jusco Bukit Raja, Bangsar Shopping Centre, Alam Sentral and again at Centre Point. For a person who's on semi-retirement, performing 3 shows a day is already tiring, let alone me being needed for 4-5 shows all spreaded over the whole afternoon and night. It's now becoming of a racing game, rushing from one place to another for the shows. But overall, it's still fun doing them. Something different from my mundane weekends.

On Saturday night, one member even bought some of us dinner at The Ship at Damansara Utama. It was the first time I laid my hands on estragot (pronounced es-tra-go) escargot (pronounced es-car-go) and oysters. Estragot Escargot are those French snails in case some of you don't know. The oyster was cooked with cheese and it taste good but I couldn't really taste the oyster though.

Yesterday (Monday, Jan. 23rd, 2006), my boss took the whole department for lunch again. This time we went to O'Briens Irish Sandwich Bar at The Weld. This was the second time; the first being at The Outback, an Australian western restaurant. That time was for the occasion of welcoming me to the company and as farewell to another colleague. This time, it's because CNY is coming. After lunch, she even bought all of us Coffee Bean. I ordered a chocolate mocha called "The Ultimate". I find the chocolate chips too small and too much but it was good nonetheless.

Anyway, the last 2 days at work has been quite eventful. Yesterday was the department meeting. Started at 10.30am and ended at 4pm with lunch midway. Today, after lunch, I went with my boss and another 2 senior to MOSTI, Putrajaya for a few reasons. One is to deliver mandarin oranges, two is to solve some problem in the system which I'm supposed to be supporting which I haven't been able to solve everything yet and also a short discussion on the new application we're going to develop. Development would go underway once the price negotiation is completed.

Wow. Has never done so many things in so few days before. Now as I'm typing this, I am feeling dead tired. So need to go now. Need ZZZZzzzzz.....

There's always a first time...

Talking about doing something for the first time, last night was the first time I actually got onto the wrong LRT feeder bus due to the changes of the bus numbers I partially realised... why partially? Taking buses all these years and I can still make stupid mistakes like that... sigh!!!!

I know it was changed but didn't notice how the changes was made. The bus no. in the 'old' days was supposed to be 901A, 901B and 901C. So all these while I remembered the alphabets but not the numbers. Hence, the moment I saw the 'A' sign, I just got up the bus, got my tickets and was closing my eyes as I was dead tired.

Then, shit happened!!!! When I opened my eyes, the routes are different, I was practically at an unknown place. So no choice, had to make one big round back to the station. And I checked. Seems that the changes were not to the alphabets alone. The new numbers are actually 901A and 902A. I was supposed to get onto 902A but I instead got onto 901A. Bloody shitie man...

Wasting 50cents for one bus trip is fine... it's a small price to pay to learn a mistake. But wasting 30 minutes at the same time really gives me the well, I don't what to call it. Annoyance? Blunder? Anger? or what so ever. Need to make sure I'm always 'awake' no matter how tired I am. Looks like I'll be taking more E-Excel health products already. The longer I work, the more I need it. Otherwise, I don't think I'll last for another 35 - 40 years working....

At what age I behave?

I'm behaving my age....hahaha

You Are 23 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.
