Control Freak

I didn’t realize how much of a control freak I am until recently. I like to make decisions and make sure that everything is under control the way that I am comfortable with. I don’t like to be someone who follow other’s lead but to decide and be prepared at all circumstances.
I don’t know when have I became like that as I remember I wasn’t so rigid in the past. I even have to control to find out the scrum software when I heard that my company is looking for one.

 


I wish I can just step back and let others do the task sometimes instead. There’s pros and definitely cons as well.

Flea Market Finds

Last weekend, after nearly a year of last visit to our favourite flea market in Amcorp mall, we decided to give it a visit. After all, he loves to pick out antiques and old toys for his collection.

Guess what he nearly bought this time? An old transformer figure. He was excited when he sees it and spent nearly a couple of hours evaluating and appreciating it. However after much consideration on whether he will really use it and the suitable place to store it, he decided heavy heartedly that he doesn’t need to own it


But he couldn’t resist to a couple of toys for his collection though which he got for a bargain!

Sleepy Head..

It’s an extremely sleepy day for me today as I slept quite late in yesterday night. I have to practically pull myself out of the bed this morning and landed myself in the shower to keep my eyes open. I felt like a zombie at work and repeating all those mundane job that just made me feel even sleepier.


I am thinking of researching on how to increase the traffic to my website but seems like I better postpone it to this weekend, after enough rest of course!


Please, let weekend be here soon!

 

 

I Am Tired

Lately I realized that there isn’t much of personal time for myself. I guess I have been stretching myself too far at work and have been putting on extra hours. Sometimes after work, I catch up with my friends and have dinner with them after work.

For example, I come home around 10.45pm and I have to shower and get some chores done before hitting the bed. There isn’t much time for myself for quality personal time. I don’t even have time to look at the new insurance that my friend proposed.

Looks like I need better time management or else I’ll get too tired and grouchy!

Going for vacation?

With the recent gloomy economy, instead of retrenchment to cut the company’s cost, we are encourage to clear our annual leave. I am not sure how it can help in cutting cost but if that is all we are required to do, I am glad to be on holiday instead of pay cut or retrenchment.


However I wish I have the extra dough and can afford to go for Vegas vacation like some of my colleagues. But I guess I’ll make use of the holiday to rest and visit my family.

10000 Steps

With my new mobile phone, I am now able to keep track of the number of steps that I am taking every day. Ultimately, I want to reach 10000 healthy steps a day although I barely reach 6000 now. It encourages me to walk more often, better than forcing myself to running on the treadmills at gym every day.

Maybe go lunch at a farther place every day or walk up the stairs?

Juicy Corn

I always thought that Cameron Highland is only well known for its roses, strawberries and vegetables. But little did I know (after going there twice before) that they grow excellent corns! The corns are extraordinary larger, very juicy and exceptionally sweet!

I bought 2 corn cups while I was there and enjoyed it very much! So I bought a pack of 4 to share with my housemates. I cooked it yesterday night and not surprisingly, all my housemates love it. They said it was very juicy and sweet!

Although the price is a little higher compare to the normal corn. However I think it is worth the price! So, must buy more on my next trip, whenever it is.

10 pounds!

My colleague has been hospitalised for the past 2 weeks due to illness. He is back to the office last Wednesday and many of us were surprised to see him! He has lost almost 10 pounds, almost effortlessly. Initially we thought that he took the slimming pill  but it was all due to appetite lost during his time in the hospital.


The girls are surely envious of his weight loss within 2 weeks!

Clubs

There is many sport club in my company; from badminton to basketball to the latest tennis club. I am no fan of sports and hardly exercise, thus I did not join any of them. But now I heard that they might start some other club to interest that non-sport fan. 

A guitar club, perhaps? That is the rumor I heard from my colleagues over the lunch. I heard some guitarists in the company always discuss about guitar and new songs to play. For me, I am not a guitar fan as well. I am still waiting for them to start a club that I will be interested in.

No Supervision~

My office is still rather quiet despite 25 minutes after normal lunching hour? Reason? All the managers are away for an expensive meeting at Malta! Yup, u heard me right. It is an expensive one as the exchange rate is higher, even higher than UK Pound.
The exchange rate is 11 to RM1. I am not sure of the currency they’re using over there but 11 to 1 is definitely very high! They’ll be away for a week and I suppose the staffs are getting a little naughty without much supervision :P
