All of us need to be psychic

Today, there was a funny conversation between me and my colleagues.. As my company had merged with another company last year, both companies are still under the state of integration, of gettting to a middle grounds since there are quite a lot of differences from benefits to working hours, etc..

One of the staff over there was assigned to work together with my recruitment officer for the integration for their recruitment work and she actually shared with my officer that her manager dont want her to advertise but still wanted her to try to be able to fill the vacancies.. She is actually fresh from uni loh, so not much experience also..

The main reason for not allowing any advertisement is due to the fact that not much ppl are looking for a job at this period as they usually waited after getting the bonus. So my recruitment officer was sharing this info with the rest of us hr ppl (actually only got 3 of us.. 2 others went to the ubi plant to conduct orientation.. hee).

After hearing this, i made a funny comment loh.. Saying something like "不让我们 advertise, then 我们以后要找人, 要自己发功, 叫他们 ‘快点来, 快点 send resume 进来。'

Translation: "Dont allow us to advertise, then the next time we need to find ppl, we all must use our inner energy and ask the ppl to send their resumes in quickly, that we are looking for them to fill our positions.."

As i was saying the above sentence, i was doing this action..

Yeah, two fingers pointing at each side of my head.. haha.. All of us burst out laughing... i laughed till tears flowed and my face cramped..

Moral of the story:

If you want to save money and still demand too much.. i believe there will be more and more vacancies soon.. Expectations should not be too much for us to handle, should be at an acceptable range... And one last point, the person making other ppl laugh should try not to be the one laughing the loudest... heehee

P.S. You may not find it funny, but if you were there then, you will understand how funny it was..

Happy Birthday To Me...

Today is once in a every year, which reminds me that i am not getting younger.. so sianz... But still must enjoy myself, so i purposely took a day off.. Many ppl was asking how come birthday need to take leave one? Actually no need but just want to sleep late mah.. heehee.. i am a pig..

Mom bought me a few slices of cake cos not everyone in my family likes cakes so dont want to waste money on a whole cake... Chocolate cake from Prima Deli.. Quite nice.. I also asked her to buy this small choco muffins.. It's very nice and have 6 in a pack (Only 5 in the pic cos 1 is already in moi stomach..), which is just right for a quick snack..

At first, i wanted to spend my day outside, maybe to watch a movie or something. But all the nice movies are only going out in Dec.. Sighz.. not willing to waste money on those i had already watched so i decided to stay at home and watch Harry Potter 3 DVD... It was a nice way to waste away one afternoon... Hee..

Brother treated me to pizza today.. i called up Canadian Pizza while he paid.. heehee.. My parents ate normal food instead of these junk food so i only ordered for both my bro and me... Ordered regular ones since it is a buy one get one free deal and i wanted to order some side orders too... The food came one hour later and looked soooo delicious (maybe is because both of us are starving..)

It was too much for me cos i dont want to eat so full at nite.. I gave 2 slices of pizza to Dad to eat... Yea!!! Old liao... Too bad no candles for me to make wishes this year.. But i'm thankful for friends who still remembered to wish me "Happy Birthday"...

Now must say birthday song to myself.. But think i better steal this song from Young.. hee
Listen to it here.

Congrats to Singapore Water Polo Team

Damn.. I wanted to go out today but the afternoon rain made me lazy so i sort of just lazed around at home, watching dvds.. I sweared i'm going out tomorrow and on Monday..

I ate like a bowl of instant noodles, 5 piece of chocolates, half of a whole fried chicken and two small buns in 4 hours.. Oh and a can of jia jia liang teh to hopefully cool me off.. I'm going to be super fat liao...In fact, I'm craving for ice cream now.. Hopefully from Ben and Jerry's since i never ate it before.. Maybe will be going to Suntec tomorrow since there's a scoop shop there...

But then hor, my teeth seemed to be in trouble already cos i can feel the pain when i ate cold stuff... But i'm sooooooo scared of seeing the dentist.. all because of the nightmare in primary school where the dentist helped me to "pu ye" and it was 3 tooth in two visits.. Sibeh painful hor... Just saw this dental clinic in Berlin, Germany on the evening news, whose owner spent 3 million SGD to renovate on its interior amd made it looked more like a spa or club than a dental clinic.. haha.. I wish such clinic existed in Singapore but i'm sure its fees will be damn exp...

Also been biting myself while eating these days.. not paying much attention bah.. Mom gave me an angbao, which is 2 days early.. haha.. The thing is the money inside is what i had given her last month, on her birthday.. super funny.. But the cash is a big welcome cos i'm still waiting for my next pay and i only have 500 bucks in bank and i sooooo dont want the bank to anyhow earned my $2.. It's my money loh..

And a big CONGRATULATION to the Singapore Water Polo Team, who helped us win the first gold medal.. They have been winning it for the past 21 years.. They are truly amazing...

You Are 22 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.

Run For Funds

Got to know about RunForFunds project through Jaywalk Daddy. Since i am a runner myself (okay, on and off.. havent been running for a long while liao..), I am totally for this cos not only does this project has meaning (can help the needy), it also motivates the runners to complete their tasks.

So do try to contribute what you can. I am not asking you to give some much that you can only eat bread for the rest of the month... Rather, give what you can as it is the thought that counts.. If you do not want to give money, you can help by spreading the words around and help to create more awareness.

One point to note is that this post is not to solicit funds from the general public as this goes against the fundamentals of the Run For Funds movement.

If you have any questions, pls go to the RunForFunds website or contact the person-in-charge, Adrian through his email (adrian@runforfunds.com).

Raining AGAIN!!!

Raining in the early morning again.. Damn sianz.. my shoes stink.. who want to smell? I'm sure you will faint one... haha..

Sighz.. back to work.. time to do the p-files...

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

I just watched Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Digital) at GV Marina and my comments for the movie is:

Disappointing but still very brillant. Dont get your hopes up and all is not lost.

For someone like me, who had just read the book not too long ago, I found a lot of details to be lacking.. Many scenes had to be sacrificed and i found that a pity. I believed that it is because of the time constaint and can only regret it is so..

For now, i will dream of Book 7 and Movie 5... Time for me to rest since i still need to work tomorrow..

A Kiasu Gal...

Being a Kiasu and greedy Singaporean, i went to collect my Harry Potter tickets on Sunday at Marina Square GV cos i can get a free notebook.. It's actually quite small but i like anything with Harry Potter on it.. Went to catch the movie, "Just Like Heaven" on that day too, so that i can see how's the sound and the image is like at the theatre..

Very luckily, i got the theatre 6 for the movie, which is where i would be watching the movie on wed (I'm watching the digital version). During the movie, there were some sound disruption, which i hope is due to the movie tape and not because of the theatre projector / equipment... Hope nothing will disrupt me during my Harry Potter show..

After that, i went to eat ice cream even though i was already feeling very cold.. By the time i finished, i was shivering and my hands are all cold.. What a way to torture myself.. I wonder how i will fare if i ever go to North pole or South pole or anywhere that actually have 4 seasons..

Someone left a message, asking why ppl are so obsessed over HP... Well, I'm not so sure.. It's just a trend that was started from the books and which the actors won us over soon after.. But actually, i started reading the books after i saw the movies.. haha.. I guess i just find Daniel Radcliffe very very charming, so much that i can spend a lot on HP..

I just bought some of HP postcards online... Wondering whether i should buy the movie poster or not.. There is actually a shop, called "Popcornpop", in Esplanade that sell movie items... I enjoy going there to see what items i can actually buy for collection..

Finally went to cowboy bar website this morning.. i think it had been more than a month since i last logged in.. Was just too busy to chat with the barflies, but thought i better leave some msg before i kenna kicked out by the Zeus or the barmaids or sheiffs.. haha

Got the new phone, 6020, today... but too bad, it's for my mom and not me.. cos she was complaining that her Samsung's ringing tone is spoilt so i bought this for her.. Luckily, it only costed an extra $68, after i signed for a 2 years' plan and i got to enjoy corporate rate through my company.. Got a free 128Mb thumb drive too but then i already got a 256Mb so not much use actually..

Aiming to buy some vcds soon.. Have my eyes on SHE's new drama,“真命天女” and the drama, “恶魔在身边”starred by 杨臣琳。They looked so interesting and good.. AHHHHH... i want to buy!!! But i must control a bit cos i've been spending too much.. Yesterday, i just bought a bag cos the design is the same as my wallet.. haha

I just read Xiaxue's post on her Thailand trip which is quite similar to mine.. This reminds me of my outstanding post for the trip... I wonder if i type almost the same post as her, will she think i am copying her? haha.. fat chance since my blog hardly exists anyway.. But then it seems that there is nothing much in Bangkok except shopping, tiger show and ah gua show.. But i do miss the shopping there.. at least can buy double of what i can buy here..

Ok, hope this is quite a long post.. cant wait for my HP tomorrow.. wahaha.. nitey~~
