Happy New Year Y'all!

Yeah, sue me for being a procrastinator!

But between 11.18am on Friday until 15.04pm on Monday, I just couldn’t find any time slot to start blogging. Gila babas sibuk! Not with work mind you but more with my social life. Whatever that I was going to bitch here the other day are so last year’s news. Since it is the last day of 2007, it’s befitting if I dedicate my post today exclusively for it!

Somewhere in the world now it is already 2008. But for us, we still have about few more hours to go. I’m not going to be at a black tie function, I’m not going to KLCC or any other places in town to celebrate and I’m not even going to a friend's New Year's Eve party that I’m supposed to attend. Instead, at midnite today, I will be at home with my dearest and cheeky bom bom, showered and in our pajamas watching Astro switching between channel 615, 703, 712, 411-413 and the sport channels.

As for the New Year, last year we were asleep before midnight. So for this year, it is our goal to at least see the new year arrive, toast a glass of sparkling non-alcoholic drink, kiss, say "happy new year" and then go to bed. It's still pathetic, but much less pathetic than going to sleep in 2006 and waking up in 2007.

2007! To recap! I won't make a list of what I learned because, well, it is better left unwritten. Some things don't need to be put into words. But I will say this....Power is good and power is sweet. I’ve mentioned before how my new job gave me an extraordinary power to make my ex-bosses from my previous company to report to me. Nooo, I don’t abuse my power *wink* but a mere phone call to them was enough to get them stutter over the phone. Our roles have been reversed. The meek is now the mighty. That alone is a powerful knowledge. Never tread on someone else’s shoes because you’ll never know when the table might turn on you.

For the first time in my life, I'm honestly ready for the New Year. I'm reenergized and waiting to take it on. I am stronger in mind and body and will continue to build my confidence as the person I am. I have all the blessings I could want in my life... now it's time to enjoy them and live my life as the strong and confident person I can absolutely be.

So, there will be lots of living to be done...living as I know how. Remember, I am awesome. Everyday I will remind myself of that and then everything else will fall into place, because it just has to. You can remind yourselves that I'm awesome every day too. That way you can say you know the awesomest person ever and you'll feel more important and therefore your lives will be better too. Go ahead... you have my permission *grin*

Finally, I just want to say thank you all for reading this blog, leaving your comments, supporting me and laughing with me. It does mean a lot...more than you know. I have met some amazing people through this "public journaling" and I'll never forget that.

My best wishes for a happy new year to all of you and your families.

Happy New Year, be safe, live happy and hold your heads high, always. It's gonna be a great 2008! Because I'm awesome and I said so!

MinahSepet out.

Few days before new year!

I haven’t had such a happening short break from work for a long time. Shit I don’t even know where to start bitching. Ok ok ok…..we’ll do it chronologically no?

First thing first! I’ve just ordered the coolest ‘something’ on the planet. Really, it is going to transform my dorky mama ass into the coolest chic in the universe. Or at least maybe the coolest chic in KL? No? Ok, maybe just the coolest chic in my tempat jin bertendang? OK FINE! THE COOLEST CHIC ON MY STREET. Happy?

I know you are peeing with excitement but you’ll just have to wait like the rest of us for the ‘something’ to arrive before I can start showing off!

Anyhow, my raya was a bit mundane. Nothing much to do besides ogling the chosen lembus, kerbaus and kambings, all waiting for its turn to be sacrificed. Nothing exciting here, so I’ll skip this part!

On to the next story which I will tell you tomorrow…ngeh ngeh ngeh!

Patience my grass hoppers! Patience! Tomorrow will come…pinky promise!

Last post before Christmas!

Today I’m happy! I’m grinning from ear to ear! I am RM100 and 1 bottle of Rasberry Carbonated Drink richer courtesy of my department’s staff recognition award! Glad that all the hard work throughout the year was somewhat recognized by others.

If you want to gauge my mood, all you have to do is examine my face. If I don’t approve, you will sure as hell know it, either from my scowl, or from my cutting remarks. If I’m happy, the whole world will be affected by it. If not from my words, then from my countenance and body language. Some times, I wish I were a better faker. But I am what I am!

I also have a bad habit of giving people a death stare when I am especially unhappy. Maybe I was dragged to a meeting, or a place, or a dinner against my wishes, or perhaps my viewpoint or ego is being run over by others in the room or maybe I have an unfavorable opinion of the speaker − all you have to do is read my face and you will know from my unnerving frown. Quite frankly, I don’t even like the death stare. It’s not contrived at all; it’s just me in my head and my body saying: “this is not to my liking.” And at the end I’ll be frowning but my mouth will be smiling putting across a cynical look on my face! This is really not a pretty sight to behold!

Too bad I have stage fright and can't act, or I could rival the devil who wears Prada herself.

Anyway, I have decided that my new year’s resolution for this year is that I would try and control my facial expressions and would also stop
re-evaluating everything and over analyzing things. It's a vicious mental battle and I hate every last second of it. Dwelling... oh the dwelling. The joys of being a mental case.

Let’s see what the New Year will bring!

Anyway, Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha and Merry Christmas to all!

Please drive safely to wherever you're going!

Naughty or nice?

So what if my team got 2nd place in the bowling tournament last Friday!

So what if because of that losing streak, we did not managed to bag the overall winner’s title!

So what if, as the staffs club treasurer entrusted to buy the gifts for the winner, I’m toying with the idea of buying something less attractive than originally planned if my team had win!

So what if I will be labeled as sore loser!

Revenge is sweet, money is power and I have the power over both!

The question now is whether I am a nice girl or not! And it's not as if I'm expecting Santa to bring me any gifts this year!

Muahahaha *devil’s laugh*

Between sweat, swearing and a song!

On the way back home yesterday, my car’s engine died just in front of Dayabumi. Luckily it was downhill all the way down to the junction nearby KTM so I had to steer my shitty car that I have clocked million of miles on!

I was glad that I actually managed to park the car at a safe place without disturbing the traffic flow. I got off the rush hour traffic with all my body parts intact and a semblance of a car.

Oh…btw…I apologize to my dearest and my parents whom I called and freaked out to on the phone…I am what you might call “not-ms-fix-it”. I can change the oil…and jump the battery (but I only know how to do that because I had gone through a period of about 6 months where I had left my lights on about 23 times…the last straw being when my car died about a month ago at the drive through window of the McDonalds due to the battery just completely having enough of me and my crap.

So today I’m car-less! With the promise of la la land tonight, my dearest kindly send me to work.

Anyway, yesterday, the organization was buzzing with results of the staffs year end performance review. From miles away, you can see people with long faces that looks like their cat just died, people with angry faces that look like their car got scratched by some hooligans and some people with happy stupid wide grin on their faces like they’ve just won the lottery.

And they say that performance review’s result must be kept confidential!

Say what???? Louder lah!!

I wrote earlier about being in dire straits with band new strain of heavy flu, colds and what naught. The bug has somewhat effected my hearing, blocking up that thingamagic tube between my eardrums and throat which makes me feel as if I’m in NASA’s echo chamber. Yesterday, after few days of being miserable, I finally couldn’t take it anymore and went to see an ENT specialist. More bad news…. coz whatever that’s effecting my hearing will only go away in a week or so (provided I diligently take the medicinelah which includes pumping steroid up my nostril, a natural behavior for Kate Moss in a night club NOT me in my PJ’s!!).

Can you imagine going through 2 functions that I was heavily involved, with a partially deaf ear?

1. Annual high tea afternoon for our organization’s ladies club:

Where I discovered that I really love learning all sort of dances but of course being born with 2 left feet, I had to settle for performing tarian endang which was more on the hand movements rather than feet. We had only a month to organize the function and when the day actually came, tension was pretty high because at the finest hour, we got to know that our guest of honour was our biggest boss. Things went well and she was smiling. Being who she is, I guess she doesn’t have time to enjoy all the girly things. I’ve asked her once about life at the top, and she said it’s very lonely and she can’t really have close friends for fear of being seen as favouritism, nepotism and all that jazz.

Show hands who wants to be at the top then? Not me that’s for sure!

2. Department’s family day in Sunway Lagoon.

Is there anywhere else in KL that we can have a proper family day? Year in, year out, it seems that most companies will have their family day in Sunway Lagoon! The place is nice and they have proper event management team but enough already. It gets boring when you can more or less know what’s coming. And the sad part is that the event management co. is Singaporean, don’t we Malaysian have enough talents? I thought we Malaysian should rock when it comes to organise good fun event!

Am I lonesome tonight?

I could have kicked my own ass all the way to Timbuktu tonight!

I got what I wished for…Free tickets to Whitney’s concert!! (literally) but….. I GAVE it away to crazy sisters’ friends!

I must be the world’s biggest loser right now!

With my hectic schedule, I did not have the time to bring cheeky bom bom anywhere even though it’s school holiday. So a week ago, I’d promised her that today was going to be her day! How was I supposed to know about those tickets?

So like a devoted mother, I brought her to the movies for ‘Enchanted’, games store, pet store, toy shops, ice cream parlour and everything else a little girl’s heart desires.

By the time we got back home I was dead on my feet. That’s when I decided to give away the tickets!

At 9pm tonight, I got to know that many free tickets are floating in KL! Many of my chummies are going to the concert (and they all thought I was already among the crowd swaying my cute tush at the concert!!!)

So here I am, in my little teddies….slightly torn yet again, in my bed, feeling very furious with myself, green with envy imagining that my buddies are enjoying themselves together, jealously hoping that its going to rain so that they won’t be having too much fun, going to sleep immersed with deep disappointment!

If I die in my sleep tonight, I’m going to die dissapointed!

Friends, please spare me with the concert’s details okay? Deal?
