(oh side story, there’s this one person in office who once indignantly and condescendingly pointed out to me, loud enough for the entire office to hear, that I made a mistake in my email to her, cos I wrote FYA, instead of FYI, like duhhh-nique-everyone-knows-its-suppose-to-be an “I” for “for your info”, "konon belajar kat overseas and all but itu pun tak tau"etc etc..i looked at her incredulously while my officemates already snickering behind her back, and explained that I wrote there ‘fya’ which means its ‘for your action’, and that if what I give is for her info, then I would have written ‘fyi’… she looked at me all pale faced and left my cubicle without a single word...geeeshhh some people, benda simple pun nak kecohh!…)
okey, back to my rants..
i hate hate hate my office!!
Ok, let’s start with the parking, the company are not able to accommodate parking for all its staff so for new people like myself have to find our own parking space elsewhere. There are two options for the nearest parking to the building; one costs RM7 but u have park your car latest (latest!) at 6.30am!! I’ve had a colleague whom comes into to the office at 6am, and sleep at the surau till 8.30am!! so NOT an option right? the next parking is in the building adjacent to ours, ok, I need to pay RM700 for deposit, RM80 for the card and RM270 for the first month parking and, so forking out a RM1k AND, get this, where u park, your car will be blocked as other cars will double park and u cannot come and go as u please, OR if you’re late u have to double park, and u have to leave yr keys with the dodgy looking parking attendants and they will move yr car for u if the car u block wants to get out, and horror stories of scratches and dents is common!
My other options include parking 15 minutes walking distance away from the office, near main roads or in between people’s houses or in other buildings far far away, I don’t mind the walk but we get robbery reports everyday, every-single-bloody-day and especially for someone like me who always work till late at night, parking at these places is simply not an option! AND don’t even get me started on the public transport here!!
So my only option is, I park in the next building to ours. Its only about 10 minutes walk BUT, the bloody building and parking area is under construction. You would think they give us a discount during this time right? But nope, I pay the full price of RM253 every month to get the following;
See how miserable this stupid place is!!
I hate the general area cos;
The walk way from the parking place to the office is sooooo narrow and uneven so klutz like me always stumbled and have felled and scraped my new M&S pants L AND the path way have no cover so always to make a run for it when it rains, so imagine running on that stupid path, AND there are stupid flower plants along the path at shoulder level and the plant blocked more than half of the path, its like oh, nevermind the people who gets scratches and bleeding from the thorns, please don’t trim the bloody flowers!!
There are NO ventilation at all once you get into the office, the windows are shut down tight and they turn on the aircond FULL BLAST and the lightings are getting yellower, making me squint all the time and the walls are stupid horrible faded orange AND we can hear the constructions outside every-single-bloody day and the drilling sound is driving me INSANE!!
I am UTTERLY miserable :(

when its my turn to organize, i have been and tried and suggested numerous numbers of restaurants all about town in an effort to impress the boss of my culinary and social knowledge of the most hip and happening restaurants in town, some are quite a hit like La Risata (Italian!) & SAGAR Indian Cuisine at Bangsar and disasters, like Unique Seafood, PJ (good food, but old chinese men and women singing karaoke through the very thin walls of the restaurant spoils the ambience majorly!).
next week i have to organize another lunch and dinner for our regional managers and i am seriously out of ideas!! so the point of this post is;
HELP!! Suggestions please!!!

saw this movie last nite..one word to describe it - FANTASTIC!!!
i forgot the ending in the book, having read it years ago, but i think the movie managed to capture the adrenalin rush that was in the book, largely i think contributed by the amazing music arrangement. one thing that i did remember from reading the book was how i really really want to visit Rome and go to Vatican City and see if its really is overwhelming as described in the book and i think, judging from the way it was portrayed and the cinematography in the movie, i will not be the only one making plans to visit Rome soon :p
go and watch it on the big screen please... its well worth it!
In the previous Friendster portal, I would add just about anyone (well, except for the psychopaths and nutcases) cos everyone was collecting friends like collecting paper clips, its not about the quality but the quantity that counts :p but in Facebook, I was determined to keep in clean and will only accept those that I would actually call a friend or those I actually have met and know. So if I have never heard of a person's name before and after investigation that person is actually a friend of a friend of a friend, looking to add to your collection, i would just ignore.
So recently, someone unknown wanted to add me as a friend.
The name does not ring a bell, and the picture is too small for me to make out if I have actually met this person or not. I checked through the mutual friend list. And asked around. She is actually the cousin of a friend’s husband’s friend. Complicated huh?
I decided to ignore this person, after all, I do not know this person at all and I don’t see the need to, I even asked my friend and she herself does not know her very well and cant understand why she wanted to add me. Without sounding totally arrogant or condescending about it, no flattery in this situation at all, cos apparently she actually requested to be friends with my other office mates as well, whom she has never met either, so its not like exclusive she wanted to be MY friend. Looks like this is one the those person who actually just want to have a collection.
Today she send me message, demanding to know why I did not accept her as a friend and pointed out on who do I think I am that I had the nerve not to accept her friendship.
Err, hello?? I am thoroughly amused and confused huhu
I have not replied to it yet..and am not planning to.
I don’t think I need to explain myself.
What do you think?

Then we fought…
I suppose a major fight, as for the first time ever he hang up on me…
It all started when I asked him to pick me up at the office instead, as after that we are both going to town anyway and he can just drop me off.. the reason I asked him to pick me up is because of 2 things, first, my stupid parking place is flooded and under major constructions, more than usual and when I went out at lunchtime, I had a bad asthma attack,..therefore I was seriously tired of going back to the parking place and rather leave the car there and only pick it up the next day... Second, my GM and this another manager just lumped another huge pile of work that is totally none related to what my job actually is, and I hated it , hated being taken for granted, hated that I cant say no, hate it that im always stuck with the bulk of the responsibility and barely a recognition :(
But I didn’t telll HIM all this, all I asked was him to pick me up..
Then I asked if he knows how to get to my office…
He gave a totally unfamiliar route that I have no freaking idea what is he talking about..
Okay, so maybe that’s my mistake, maybe he knows the road better than I do, but his explanation is just too weird..
So I gave up trying to explain.. and told him I will drive instead, cos it sounds too complicated..
Then he gets pissed and asked why I didnt thinking about it first and why do I keep changing my mind…
Then he hang up on me….so now I don’t know if we are even meeting up for his birthday…
It is not suppose to be this hard :(….

at Tanah Lot, gorgeous place, too bad twas raining when we when there, so had miss the sunset huhu
at Jimbaran, another gorgeous place, altho i seriously think that the sunset here in Malaysia is way better! or maybe i am already biased cos i hated the place due the expensive dinner we were cheated to have huhu
righto, moving to the next thing, went to Tanjung Jara Resort last weekend, usually i dun like to blog about company events, but thennnnnn that was probably because i used to hate my previous company hehe but i have to blog about this place, its definetely worth the effort of organizing and the migrains and headaches to have our department family day there. being a YTL hotel, the resort was top class all the way, it was a perfect three days! perfect! the people was lovely, everything went almost accordingly to plan which was of course totally fine, its expected, the food was abundance and delicious, the room, aahh, the room, half of me do not wanna leave the room at all in the three days i was there, and the other half wanna go swim in the deep blue ocean, enter a sandcastle competition (i did and won 3rd place!!wuhoo! :p), hang out by the bubble pool, played kites on the beach and relax at those huge white sofas they scaterred by the beach all over the resort!
no pictures yet, as usual, will give the full review later okeh..post this first lah..nanti lagi lama pending hehe
