THE SEND-OFF. =`(
spent the last night in Cathy's room at ymca again!
& this time, Rebecca came along too, hoho
watched some tv then slept!
Cathy spent the next morning packin' her stuff
had to check out by 12pm
when we had checked out,
we went to the kopitiam near SMU for lunch
it was so packed!
we then went back to the lobby of ymca & waited for a MAXICAB!
cos they had too many luggages, haha
this was my first time takin' one!
it was so big & comfortable inside!
the MAXI-cab with MINI-bec, hoho.
it was a really quick ride to changi airport
this was also my first time sendin' people off
her luggages were over the weight limit
so she had to squeeze quite a few things over to her hand luggage
& thanks to Rebecca, who was SO good at doin' this
she managed to save $140 of excess luggage fee! hoho.
at about 3pm+,
Cathy & Kelly entered the departure gate
really hate to face the realities of life -
all good things muz always come to an end,
but why muz they?!?
i want to fly to shanghai to visit them SOON!
after sendin' them off,
Rebecca & i went to town
where we met up with Jiayun & Qiuyi for dinner at billy bombers
then headed home!
It is in reality a nice and helpful piece of info. I'm satisfied that you shared this helpful info with us. Please keep us informed like this. Thanks for sharing.

CATHY'S & KELLY'S LAST DAY. (YMCA!)
went ymca to sleep-over last night! =P
was supposed to meet Cathy for dinner
but due to some miscommunication
she didn't know we were supposed to meet
on top of that, her handphone is down
& i really had a hard time lookin' for her!
last resort - i waited outside ymca
but after waitin' for quite some time
i went to ask the reception if she's in her room
he told me 'yes', so i went up & knocked on her door
knocked for quite a while,
then she happened to juz come back! =)
finally found her~
she suggested for me to stay-over in her room for the night
& I DID!!! heex. =)
we went for dinner at the kopitiam near SMU
then i bought a toothbrush from 7-eleven
hoho, impromptu decision!
the beds we slept on!
the night was spent watchin' tv, chattin', then sleepin'!
woke up an hour later than usual (730am!)
then joined Cathy & Kelly in the breakfast buffet provided by y-cafe @ ymca everyday! wahaha.
we then went to work together!
this was the first time i reached the office later than 9am! gosh.
we had a short meetin', to bid farewell to Cathy & Kelly
since it's their last day in the singapore office
SAD. SAD. SAD.
they only had to work half a day today
cos they had to go back to their rooms to do more packin'!
will be goin' over to Cathy's room to stay-over ONCE AGAIN tonight!
on leave tomorrow to send them off! =)
Missing you too, I will take care of myself when we meet again you will see a new cathy,haha!
i miss you like crazy~.

ON HALF-DAY LEAVE!
realise i can't sit on the train to work
cos once i sit, i'll doze off
& once i doze off,
i'll wake up only at stations AFTER tanjong pagar
juz like what happened today
was on half-day leave!
didn't really want to go on leave
(call me a workaholic or whatever)
cos there was work for me to do!
i know there's no end to work
but what's the point of sittin' at home anyway?
HAD to clear this leave by end of january
if not it'll be WASTED!
so nice of my colleagues
they waited till 1pm to go for lunch
so that i could leave & join them as well =)
went to settle my laptop loan matters
(finally had the time to go to the bank!)
& got a quick hair-trim

Saturday, January 27, 2007
TREE-TOP WALK + YUKI YAKI + MIND CAFE!
saw this at the carpark downstairs! so cute!
went macritchie reservoir to meet Sharon!
embarked on the tree-top walk!
we really chose the wrong day - cos it was drizzlin' & drizzlin'!
it took about 5km to reach the tree-top walk
it was a long suspended wooden bridge among the trees
there wasn't much to see except TREES & more tress
then it was a FREAKIN' long walk out!
i think the total walk we covered was close to 15km?
my legs were tremblin' from the endless stairs we had to climb down
the start of the trail!
opened in 2004 but this was my first time here?!?
the tree-top walk!
we finally managed to get out at around 3pm+
& went thomson's roti prata house for prata!!!
finally some food after walkin' for hours
(i didn't have breakfast + lunch!)
took a bus to town
went espirit @ raffles city to buy a top + bottom to change into!
an excuse for shoppin'? haha
also bought a pair of footwear from charles & keith @ citylink
Sharon & i then met up for dinner with Yih Hong & Andy!
we had steamboat buffet (my n-th time..) at yuki yaki @ marina square!
personally i prefer it to seoul garden
(so much cheaper!)
& many choices too!
the soup was yummy + the salmon was delicious! =P~
& the manager looked like tony leung! wahaha.
had a good sense of humour too! hoho.
our yummy soup! (overflowin'?)
we then took a walk from
marina square -> esplanade -> fullerton -> boat quay
sighx. miss this route, miss this area! (my old office..)
it started drizzlin' (argh. the darn weather)
& we had to seek shelter at coffee bean
till the rain stopped then we continued to walk down boat quay
& found the mind cafe at around 11pm+! hoho.
the beginnin' of the HILARIOUS night!!!
we went in & took the gang of four package (the yao gui gang of 4? muahaha.)
& asked the staff to introduce the first game to us
1) luck of the draw
this was really a funny one to start off the night! each person takes turn to throw the dice & draws a card, & these will determine the item to be DRAWN. all of us had papers + pencils, so we had to draw our own interpretations of the word. the first word was - BEEHIVE & we had all sorts of drawings for it! damn funny can! then another card is drawn, statin' the criteria for winnin', for eg., "the one that stands out like a sore thumb", so we had to vote for the drawin' that suits that criteria usin' the votin' wheel.
FUN SCALE:: 7/10
LAUGHTER SCALE:: 7/10
all our drawings!
this is one of the standard + muz-play games in such cafes, haha. i don't quite like it initially cos i seriously have problems expressin' myself. but now i find it super entertainin', wahaha. all the tables around us were playin' this game! so i suggested that we try too. (i don't think i have to explain how is it played.) Yih Hong was my team-mate & he was tryin' to make me say the words "TOILET ROLL". & he said,"when you go & pee, it's somethin' you use but i don't use." i was like HUH? sanitary pad has nothin' to do with peein' right? Sharon already knew the answer cos she had to check on Yih Hong, so she was already laughin' her head off. MUAHAHA. now we know.. HAHAHA. and bein' SCIENCE geeks, i could actually guess "CARROT" from the clue he gave - beta-carotenoid. FWAH. then Andy was another funny one.
Sharon was in his team, tryin' to make him say "BELLY BUTTON". Andy got to stage where he said,"NAVEL!", then Sharon said,"yaya, another word for navel?". he paused & said,"tummy hole?". & we couldn't stop laughin' again. goodness.
FUN SCALE:: 8/10
LAUGHTER SCALE:: 9/10
3) first hand
this next game was a reaction game. there will be one person who is the judge for the round, so he turns over a card, which shows an action to be done using our hands. the players have to quickly follow whatever is shown on the card & the judge determines who is the slowest to do it. a very short game but enjoyable too!
FUN SCALE:: 6/10
LAUGHTHER SCALE:: 6.5/10
fastest hand first!
4) rat-a-tat cat
a card game that requires memory & thinkin'! every player has 4 cards faced down & are only allowed to peek at the outermost 2 cards at the start of the game then you'll have to remember the numbers on them. so at every round, each player picks up a card from the deck & decides if he wants to swap it with any of his 4 faced-down cards. the purpose is to get the 4 cards with the lowest numbers. this is quite a boliaox game! haha.
FUN SCALE:: 4/10
LAUGHTER SCALE:: 2/10 (nothin' to laugh about!)
5) villa paletti
a balancin' game (somethin' like uno stacko. each of us has a colour & we had to remove our rods from the board & place it on the next level. once you know you have no rod/ the next rod you remove will definitely topple the structure, you have to suggest to start the next level. excitin' but quite boliaox too. haha.
FUN SCALE:: 4.5/10
LAUGHTER SCALE:: 4/10
a small structure..
..to a TALL one! aHhHh.
another memory + thinkin' game. it was almost 2am when we started playin' this, haha. each player has 3 numbered-tiles to start off with. the aim is to guess everyone else's numbers on their tiles, knowin' that left has the smallest number and the right has the largest number. a very slow thinkin' game!
FUN SCALE:: 5/10
LAUGHTER SCALE:: 4/10
guess the numbers?
7) ticket to ride (europe)
our last game for the night! this is a board-game, which wants us to build trains from a place to another, dependin' on our missions. it's a strategy game and requires plannin'! we couldn't finish this game cos the place closed at 3am! haha.
FUN SCALE:: 5.5/10
LAUGHTER SCALE:: 5/10
the map europe!
all in all
we totally enjoyed ourselves! =)
i accidentally mentioned i-gallop as i-horse!
took a cab, & reached home at 4am!
Friday, January 26, 2007

the organiser this time round was Rebecca

& shopped around carrefour
before headin' home!

say bye-bye to raffles place
& hello to tanjong pagar!
J.D. Power has moved to its new office at temasek tower @ shenton way
situated at the 44th level! my god.
can you imagine the view?
met up with Rebecca, Wei Leng, Pei Chin, Juvina at the station control
then went up to the office together
got to my desk & unpacked my stuff
hope to keep my desk neat & tidy FOREVER!
the view was really breath-takin'
it overlooks the sea, the long east coast parkway, the world's busiest port & even sentosa!
(we could see our former office buildin' from here too)
could also see the vessels, aeroplanes & the clouds!
my desk! =)
the view i get the moment i look to the right!
went amoy food market for lunch!
had kway chap! but it was so-so only
could hardly work today
cos the server was runnin' so slowly!
what have improved & what have dropped
as compared to the old office::
FOOD:: MORE choices i feel! amoy alone has SO MANY stalls to choose from. also saw many eatin' outlets like pasta mania, sakae sushi, etc. nearby!
VIEW:: definitely better! the old one has a view of the concrete jungle. this has a mix!
TEMPERATURE:: still as freezin'! boo.
SEAT:: still not very strategically located. haha. what's worse, Syam is so faraway! but i have to say, it's more spacious!
ACCESSIBILITY:: have to transfer a train to get to town! didn't make much of a difference by bein' one stop closer to home.
TOILETS:: we gotta get a key if we want to go to the ladies! argh. so troublesome! & the toilet is so stuffy! still prefer our cool little toilet in the old office, where there's music + air-con!
i wanna have something from me on your desk!!!
lolx, i can stick your christmas card up!
*pig face* *pout* dun wan! I wan my face up there! hahaha...haunt u haunt u~~ muahahahahaha~~~ :x
gasp.. like that how to work?!?

my mum popped the question,"do you have a boyfriend?"
was chattin' with Xue Na while eatin'

Love doesn't juz happen, you have to make it happen.
i then accompanied my parents to shop around jurong west

i'm proud to announce::

they should consider turnin' it into a movie
it's not robin cook's

Good luck! The best five answers win.
feelin' REALLY inspired,
i started draftin' the story (don't laugh ok..)::
Subject:: JJ Lin: One Thousand Years of True Love..
[Music:: JJ Lin - yi qian nian yi hou (One thousand years later)]
In the year 2007, an ordinary boy did something extraordinary...
He was by the hospital bed, where his dear girl lay. She was leaving this world soon, then his tears touched the angels above. The angels had a deal - if they were to allow the girl to live on, he would, in exchange, become an angel (the girl wouldn't be able to see him) and the girl would have lost all memories of him. He agreed. And she lived.
Her family was so relieved she pulled through, and told her about the boy she was deeply in love with, but she doesn't remember such a person. The boy stayed by her side every day, watching over her just like her guardian angel. She was reincarnated everytime her cycle of life ended.
Today, in the year 3007, one thousand years later, he had watched over her for over 10 generations. From the dear girl he has always loved, he has taken care of her when she was reincarnated into a cute little puppy, a goldfish in a tank, a successful business woman.
Through these thouand years, he could only watch and guard her. She doesn't know his love for her, although sometimes she could feel a guardian angel is watching over her...
(P.S., this boy is none other than our dear JJ! Only he can show how gentle an angel can be, how sincere and true a love can be.)
the above story was inspired by death note 2 + tong hua MV
i checked my email & saw this::
Subject:: Hello, proud owner of JJ Lin autographed poster
Dear Mei Qing,

found this at a forum::
20 great liners
1. Regular naps prevent old age... especially if you take them while driving.
2. Having one child makes you a parent; having two makes you a referee.
3. Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right and the other is the husband!
4. They said we should all pay our tax with a smile. I tried- but they wanted cash.
5. A child's greatest period of growth is the month after you've purchased new school uniforms.
6. Don't feel bad. A lot of people have no talent.
7. Don't marry the person you want to live with, marry the one you cannot live without... but whatever you do, you'll regret it later.
8. You can't buy love. . But you pay heavily for it.
9. True friends stab you in the front.
10. Forgiveness is giving up my right to hate you for hurting me .
11. Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote.
12. Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.
13. My wife and I always compromise. I admit I'm wrong and she agrees with me.
14. Those who can't laugh at themselves leave the job to others.
15. Ladies first. Pretty ladies sooner.
16. It doesn't matter how often a married man changes his job, he still ends up with the same boss.
17. They call our language the mother tongue because the father seldom gets to speak.
18. Saving is the best thing. Especially when your parents have done it for you.
19. Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools talk because they have to say something.
20. Real friends are the ones who survive transitions between address books.
entertainin' & very true!
ever knew someone who doesn't like to watch tv?
sometimes i gotta FORCE myself to watch tv
cos i prefer bein' online
but i still wanna make sure i watch some tv
cos there are news, adverts, that let you know what's happenin' outside
that's why a new resolution --> watch more tv!!!

LAST WEEK @ SIX BATTERY ROAD, RAFFLES PLACE
is the LAST week which J.D. Power will be at raffles place
from next week onwards,
we will be re-located at temasek tower @ tanjong pagar!
any recommendations on good eatin' places there?
gonna eat thousands of lunches there you know
today is my colleague aka shijie's (Wei Leng) birthday!
she treated us to lunch at the palace (the korean restaurant)
work was really smooth
& for some reason, i was feelin' so energized
juz can't help thinkin' that Cathy will be leavin' our office for shanghai office very soon
(in less than a month)
guess i'll definitely miss her badly
she has her unique sense of humour
& is always so warm + friendly
i juz hate to see people go
Seok Chuan sent me a really meaningful email
shall share it with all of you::
(if you have the patience, read it. if you don't, forget it.)
Two travelling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family. The family was rude and refused to let the angels stay in the mansion's guest room. Instead the angels were given a small space in
the cold basement. As they made their bed on the hard floor, the
older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it. When the younger angel asked why, the older angel replied, "Things aren't always what they seem."
The next night the pair came to rest at the house of a very poor, but very hospitable farmer and his wife. After sharing what little food they had the couple let the angels sleep in their bed where they could have a good night's rest. When the sun came up the next morning the angels found the farmer and his wife in tears. Their only cow, whose milk had been their sole income, lay dead in the field. The younger angel was infuriated and asked the older angel how could you have let this happen? The first man had everything, yet you helped him, she accused. The second family had little but was willing to share everything, and you let the cow die. "Things aren't always what they seem," the older
"When we stayed in the basement of the mansion, I noticed there was gold stored in that hole in the wall. Since the owner was so obsessed with greed and unwilling to share his good fortune, I sealed the wall so he wouldn't find it."
"Then last night as we slept in the farmers bed, the angel of death came for his wife. I gave him the cow instead. Things aren't always what they seem."
Sometimes that is exactly what happens when things don't turn out the way they should. If you have faith, you just need to trust that every outcome is always to your advantage. You just might not know it until some time later...
what can i say?
always believe that EVERYTHIN' HAPPENS FOR A REASON
& every unhappy or suay event may juz be a blessin' in disguise
you missed the bus - this bus could most probably meet an accident, or you may get pick-pocketed by a thief on this bus.
your internet connection isn't workin' - you will sleep early & get enough rest instead of gamin'/ chattin' through the night.
you lost your handphone & cash to a robber - but you have your life saved.
you didn't get the job you applied for - the people & environment there may not suit you at all.
you get retrenched - you get a long holiday! wahaha.
think about it.
DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF! =)

met up with Vivi & Ah Du!
& we went settlers' cafe @ holland village for board games! hoho
many friends joined us too - Joy, Ruby, Joycelyn, Zhi Wei!
7 of us in total, woohoo.
we played taboo & risk
taboo was damn hilarious
(yuan yuan di.. yuan yuan di..)
have to let your team members guess a word by tryin' to explain as much as you can
with some taboo words that can't be said
that was so tough for a vocab-limited person like me!
the next game, risk, was a strategy game about conquerin' territories
it was not bad, but only if it was a little faster
me & Ah Du
we played till 10pm
then left for wala wala!
that's completin' point no.4 of my things-to-do-in-2007! hoho
it was saturday night, so it was darn packed!
we had some drinks + food
before goin' up to watch the 'live' band for a while
didn't really like this band though
Ah Du, Ruby & me!
Vivi & Ruby!
our JUGS of drinks! screwdriver
our pepperoni pizza. wah, so much pepperoni?!
hardly could see the band? too dark + packed!
