it was half-day at work today
since it's the last day of 2007! woohoo.
it's my first time being the primary auditor for an internal audit!
was rather stressed about it,
cos i had to prepare what to ask! zzz.
on the whole, i hope i've done quite well? heex.
within my expectations =)
went for a late lunch at pasta mania @ cineleisure
with Bec, Qiuyi, Cecilia
traffic lights! red,
amber yellow, green! hoho.
we then went ktv! hoho.
love it when we get a BIG room for juz a few of us
we counted down at a countdown party at boon lay
there were fireworks right above our heads
but we could even feel some residue falling on us, eeks!
Qiuyi spotted a creepy centipede! eeks. but it died a painful death, poor thing.
we had a late dinner at mac
before going back to Qiuyi's house
stayed over at her house for the night!
she was helping me do some facial! wahaha. =P
do i look scary in the black mask?
here's a round-up of 2007!
THE YEAR 2007
RUN RUN RUN! - the most significant change this year, as compared to the past years, is the number of mass runs i've participated! i've joined a total of 6 runs::
1. Women's Outdoor Challenge @ ECP - 5km (17 Mar)
2. Anlene Orchard Mile @ Orchard Rd - 1.6km (10 Jun)
3. Milkrun @ Zoukparade - 4km (1 Jul)
4. Passion Run @ ECP - 10km (8 Jul)
5. Great Eastern Run @ Esplanade - 5km (21 Oct)
6. Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon @ Esplanade - 10km (2 Dec)
woohoo. amazing!!! more to come in 2008! =)
WORK IT OUT! - besides running so much, i had some workouts this year too. In february this year, i had a try at a professional gym, planet fitness @ vivocity! attended its body combat & cycling classes, goodness, so exhausting! went to the gym at my office building with my colleagues for a few times too & went to the gym at Wei Leng's condo at the gardens once! joined the heartstrings walk @ the esplanade - a really SHORT walk, haha! had a workout session during the amore women's day out event too. and recently, we had a fire drill, which involved us walking more than 2000 steps (44 levels) down! i call that a workout too. had many badminton sessions too! enjoyable~
YUMMIES! - then why am i still putting on so much weight despite the above 2 points? cos i ate as much as i worked out, OOPS! had 3 crabs-eating sessions at amk this year - expensive yet very delicious! took leave to have a lunch buffet at the line @ shangri-la hotel! woohoo. dined at carnivore @ chijmes too, a damn meaty meal! gosh. & the no.1 killer - the uncountable number of STEAMBOATS i've eaten this year! AHHHH. no wonder.
AWAY FROM SINGAPORE! - the best part about this year, is the number of trips i've made! a big hole in my pocket, yes, but i really enjoyed myself totally! heex. from 14 may to 23 may, i was away in taiwan! it was a GREAT trip exploring taipei & hualien. missing it so much now, wanna go back there soon! on 14 jul, i went on a one-day trip to batam for cable-skiing! it was really tiring but i really enjoy watersports! had 2 weekend getaways with my colleagues:: to genting (28 sep to 30 sep) and to bintan (24 nov to 25 nov)! i thought genting was already very enjoyable & fun (cos of the amusement rides we took!), but the trip to bintan proved to be even better (though shorter)! wahaha. our villa was perfect, the sandy white beach was perfect, the weather was perfect, the people were perfect! i wish i never have to come back~ definitely more getaways next year!
AIRPORT! - what is this about? haha. besides flying to taiwan, i visited the airport for many other reasons this year too! on 31 jan, i took leave to send Cathy & Kelly off, our china collgeaues who were here for training, back to china. wonder when will i see them again! on 27 may, after returning from taiwan, i asked Wee Perng to help in the picking up of Rebecca, her mum & Qiuyi, who were returning from their hongkong trip. on 21 june, went to pick Yih Hong up, who juz came back from australia, lucky boy! and on 19 july, went to send Wei Wei & Keith off, as they were going shanghai! so that's 4 trips to the airport! woohoo.
BOARDGAMES MADNESS! - visited the settlers' cafe three times and once to the mind cafe this year. always enjoyed myself at these boardgames cafe with a bunch of friends, hoho. always having a hilarious time!
MAHJONG! PONG! - this year i picked up mahjong! hoho. had overnight mahjong sessions for quite many times! twice at Pei Chin's house, once at Qiuyi's, once at Frank's, and 3 times at Krista's house! woah. i hope i'm getting better at it? (at the same time, addicted?)
SCRAPBOOKING FUN! - did 2 scrapbooks as birthday gifts twice this year! the first was with Vivi, which we did one in one evening for Seok Chuan, really love the final product! the next was with Qiuyi, which we did overnight for Rebecca, hoho! kidda enjoy all the cutting & pasting!
I'VE WON! - the prizes i've won this year, a JJ Lin autographed poster from mediacorp cos i wrote in a little story, hoho, but i didn't collect the prize! oops. a bottle of heliocare from the anlene orchard mile event, a trip to phuket from jetstar, cos i posted a photo of us in taiwan with the best starjump! hoho. & lastly, a pair of cable-ski passes from cleo. i collected the passes, but they expired in juz a few days' time, duh.
WEDDINGS! - attended my cousin, Xue Na's little wedding ceremony, and also a colleague, Alan's wedding this year! more to come in 2008?
HAPPY BIRTHDAYS! - many birthday parties this year! woohoo. my sister turned 21 this year, all grown-up now! & she's already managing the many soup spoon stores, recently a new outlet opened at bugis junction! many old friends, Frederick, Liping, Seok Chuan, Angela all turned 21 too! (i have so many young friends huh). also attended some babies' 1 month celebrations - Yvonne's baby boy & Andrew's baby girl! =)
THE ARTS! - surprisingly, watched some concerts and plays this year! intempo 2007 by the NUS wind symphony, emerge 2007 - love.hate, a play by the CAC voices (starring Amanda!), the phantom of the opera musical, an evening with friends, a choir concert by ACJC & lastly, rhymonia IX, a harmonica concert by ngee ann poly. not bad huh?
FALLS! - it's funny i'm keeping a record of this! haha. but strangely, i kept falling down this year, hmmx. on 6 apr, i had a minor fall at east coast park while cycling with Angela. a little girl suddenly turned into my path, making me fall from my bicycle, but there were no injuries! whew. but i wasn't so lucky the next time. on 6 oct, again at east coast park cycling with Rebecca & Qiuyi, i had quite a bad fall while making a turn. my turn was too wide, and i was off-balance. oops. then finally, on 16 nov (this is ridiculous), i fell down while walking back to office after lunch! the ground went in without me noticing, so i fell face-flat on the ground, oh man~ hope i'll get luckier in 2008!
JOBS! - some notes about work! my office had shifted to tanjong pagar ever since 15 jan this year. getting used to this new environment! on 3 dec, i was officially certified to be an internal auditor for my company (more work? ya.) regarding my part-time job at spageddies, i was asked to go to spageddies @ marina square to help out for 2 shifts. didn't really like the working environment there! well anyway, i have kidda stopped working at the one at paragon ever since 9 dec, it's been 2 years & 4 days working there! & this ends my 5 years in the F&B service industry. it's been a memorable experience, ups & downs, valuable lessons~ =)
BIG NEWS! - some big news around us~ on 6 mar, there was an earthquake at indonesia, 11 mar - a murder took place at soup spoon @ raffles city shopping centre (scary!), 2 apr - tsunami at the solomon islands, 16 apr - the virginia tech shooting (OMG.), 25 may - a water spout was spotted from my office, 12 sep - earthquakes at sumatra, & the most recent incident on 25 nov - the cambodia dragonboat accident. so many of these are unfortunate and sad incidents, sighx. will 2008 be better?

who started with juz a small idea to have some fun 2 months ago,
leading all the way to the christmas season
so for the past 2 months,
we showered our mortals with lots of love & gifts
the pantry was the shared area to place all our gifts secretly,
& we even had a tagboard to post our messages!
it livened up the atmosphere in the office quite abit,
especially when it's getting nearer to this day! woohoo.
it's a christmas dinner at sizzler @ suntec city
we also had a theme - BLING BLING!
you could see MOST of us wearing bling bling tops, carrying bling bling items, wahaha.
KT was the most classic!
he didn't seem to have any bling bling items when we saw him in office
then during the dinner,
he fished out a SUPER-bling tag which he wore around his neck
Gokul, Andrew & Xiao Lei didn't follow the theme tonight,
so they had to be forfeited!
they had to eat some of the world's worst combination of food from the salad bar + ice-cream
but they were really sporting! hoho.
Bec did this twirling of the ice-cream & she felt it was very nice, ermx. haha! =P
we revealed who our mortals were,
& gave our gifts to our mortals!
my angel was Cui Fang - wah, silently siah!
