Another Saturday

It’s boring Saturday again! If only I can go to Megan’s place like Fridays. haha.

Anyway, I went to National Library to study with and accompany Hui Ling. I studied some stuff for marketing. It was actually quite boring as I had nothing much to study. So, I borrowed some books to read.

Actually, today, there wasn’t really much that we did. I went home alone as Huiling was staying till 21:00. I took bus 70 and it was really the wrong choice. I should’ve taken the MRT train home. >< I ended up with motion sickness, causing me to feel nauseated and have a headache. The feeling was so awful. >< I had to alight from the bus at Serangoon MRT station to buy some dried orange peels to suppress the nausea. And then I took bus 109 home. The discomfort lasted up till now. >< Still feeling kind of giddy. :/

Anyway, I’m going swimming tomorrow at Anchorvale then study with huiling. And in the late afternoon, I have to go for my dragon boat training as coach contacted me about the upcoming race.

Here are some photos taken last Saturday at the library@esplanade and in front of Esplanade:

I’m back ;)

I’m back from the DPA camp! πŸ™‚ Well, that was yesterday. hehe. I wanted to blog about the details of the camp but I’ve decided not to. :X But below are the links to view the photos on Facebook:

SP DPA Camp 2009 @ Mawai Eco Camp [10 – 12 Feb 09] Day 1
SP DPA Camp 2009 @ Mawai Eco Camp [10 – 12 Feb 09] Day 2
SP DPA Camp 2009 @ Mawai Eco Camp [10 – 12 Feb 09] Day 3

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. I really wish to go out with my friend in the evening to hang out somewhere beautiful. πŸ™‚ So far, there isn’t anyone free in the evening, but I think I’ll be going out with Huiling in the day.

Oh yeah, I’m super duper happy! I’ve received 3 postcards from postcrossing already!! πŸ˜€ 2 from Finland and 1 from the Netherlands! It’s so nice to receive postcards all the time! It just makes my day. πŸ˜€ And, I received a Valentine’s Day card from Jake today! Whee! It was really nice and sweet. haha. Thanks Jake! πŸ™‚

Lastly, I was feeling bored today and went to cut and rebond my hair. Dang. And apparently my elder sister said I copyΒ her again. Damn. Always say that I copy her. What kind of theory is that. Total bullshit man. :X

Not so good.

I wasn’t in the best of moods today due to several reasons. I was all excited for work today as I was scheduled to do SBE (rental of wagons, strollers and lockers) for the first time and I heard it was fun. However, during the morning briefing, before I could even learn just 1 thing about SBE, Vijay (AIC) announced that whoever that’s doing SBE today will be doing alone (and that’s me) as Lela is on MC. Then I told them that it’s my first time doing SBE. Damn. Shouldn’t have been so honest at that time. At that very point, they asked Liyana to replace me and I had to do entrance. Like, ZOMG. Come on man, they can just teach me within 5 minutes can. They insisted that they can’t train me today. Oh my gosh.

Later on, I was told that I can go over to SBE after lunch to be trained. I was really glad to hear that. Unfortunately, when I JUST came back from lunch, I was told that I am NOT going to be trained for SBE today. Like, what are they doing? Pushing me around? Not only that, at the entrance, I didn’t even get a chance to do members the whole day. At that point, I felt like I’m given the worst job all the time. :/

There was something else that made all these worse — abdominal pains & discomfort. Out of all days to experience this. When I even bother to mention that I’m experiencing this that means it’s not some mild pains that will go in an hour or two. Before lunch, I was already experiencing them. The pain didn’t ease after lunch and stuff (too lazy to really elaborate).

Anyway, Benji and Caspar were really nice and kind of helped me to request for a break so that I can sit down for awhile to reduce the pain. Then Cui Xia walked over and asked me to take a seat while she take over me for awhile. I felt bad for doing that but I know I’ll feel better that way. So, I went to sit and I felt really awkward and terrible about it. Then Marilyn Choo asked me to go home if I’m really not feeling well. I told her that some rest will be fine (considering that there’s only 1.5 hours to go and I need to get an MC for going home early). However, she went on to make me feel even more guilty by telling me that the rest are also tired and yet I am sitting there to rest. I was like, fine, I’ll just go back. No point sitting there and listening to all these when I already know it myself. In addition, I dislike the fact that she makes it sound like I’m faking it. Well, people who know me well won’t think that way. But oh well, how many people are there who know me well?

After all these that happened, there were a lot of negativity in my mind and all that. *sigh* You can say that I’m sensitive or what, but that’s only because I’ve heard all those stuff MANY times. So, when it’s mentioned, it’s like everything comes right back at me. >< I’ve been trying my best to get rid of this but so far the only thing that I can find to cheer me up a little is reassurance. And sorry if I ask silly questions at this sort of times.

I can laugh a lot even when I’m really upset. That’s what happened today.

Anyway, tomorrow is my last day of work and I’m scheduled to work at SBE again. I hope the same thing won’t happen again tomorrow if not I’ll be very upset. Tomorrow better be good. And it’s so sad that Joyce’s leaving Singapore tomorrow! Then I have one less girl friend to hang out with. :X

All right, I hope I’ll wake up tomorrow morning and feel refreshed and ready for the day. All the best to myself.

A day out with Joyce and Benji

Off-day + 3rd day of Chinese New Year! πŸ™‚

I spent my day with my work colleagues — Joyce and Benji. Haha.

I met up with Benji and we went to walk around. He’s like super funny but I don’t know why. :X It’s like half the time when he’s around, I’m laughing. hahaha. We walked to Marina Square and tried to decide what to have for lunch while we waited for Joyce to arrive.

The final decision for lunch was Changing Appetites (CA). It’s my first time dining at CA and the lunch deal that we had was pretty reasonable. S$8.90 (excluding GST) covers main course, soup of the day, free flow of soft drinks and dessert of the day. I ordered roasted chicken pasta with mushroom cream sauce for the main course. I got to say that the pasta was nice. πŸ™‚ The mushroom cream sauce wasn’t too creamy and the serving was just right. In addition, there was some spices added to the roasted chicken, adding a bit more taste to the cream sauce. Yummy. πŸ˜€

After lunch, Benji had to meet his friend. So, we walked him to the National Library and we left. Joyce and I then headed to MANY places. hahaha. Here’s the list, in order of the places we went to:

1. Cheers >> ask directions to NTUC Income
2. An office building >> ask for some more directions to NTUC Income
3. Outside POSBank at SMU >> ask for FURTHER directions to NTUC IncomeΒ 
4. NTUC Income >> settle Joyce’s insurance
5. Bras Basah Popular >> Joyce bought some stationery
6. National Library >> I borrowed a book
7. Plaza Singapura >> We bought some stuff from Daiso and I bought something from Times
8. F.O.S near the Istana >> check out some clothes
9. Some shops near F.O.S >> I bought some postcards
10. OG @ Orchard >> We bought some clothes

Yup. We went to all these places by foot. hahah. So tired. After all that, Joyce went off by MRT while I brisk walked to Wheelock Place to repair my phone. In the end, I was told that my phone is not exactly spoiled in a way. And it’ll cost S$80 – S$120 to repair it. >< So, I didn’t repair my phone. Oh wells.

Tomorrow I’ll be working at SBE for the first time! Hope it’ll be fine. πŸ™‚
