Drinking at 2PM in the afternoon

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Turning alcoholic? LOL... Well, it taste okay. None of that heavy bitter taste aftertaste. You can just "smell" the alcohol after. Of course, all this cannot be compared to what Angela must be downing in club. Who is turning out to be quite the expert drinker now. Actually said that she's into clubbing because of the drinks.


I need to find something to amuse myself...Waiting XMan on a roll...

work, 工作, shigoto...

shigoto shigoto shigoto

Okay, I found work/ a job. Somebody is willing to employ me...Well, however bad the job may turn out to be, I would have to stick it out now. I don't think there's a bond or anything like that...Not sure, let's see when Kelly Services get me down to sign the appointment letter.

BUT. A huge "but" at that.

I really do need to stick it out for at least a year. Otherwise, my resume would not be salvageable, it's looking pretty bad as it is. Sure, people/interviewer have been saying that's okay. It's a stage of life people go through....Still, it's undeniable it's the first thing they pointed out.

So neck is on the line. Have to see how it goes. Starting work (training first) on the 11st of May. Don't know if I heard the date wrongly or not, as I answered the phone on the MRT. Going to check with Kelly Services when I go sign the appointment letter. Think they would call me on Monday....

Productive interview

Well, the interview at Kelly Services was rather productive. Unlike other interviews I had before at agencies. Not that I got confirmed for a job or anything like that. The consultant lead me through questions, preparing for an interview. Beef up my answers. She thought that I speak well enough, only need to elaborate more on the answers. Even gave me a paper with tips on it. I really wonder how many people they prepped for interviews like this daily, that they have the templates files all photocopied out to be given out...

Informed me it's actually a job at call center of a bank. I gave my okay for her to send over my resume. Told me they are likely to call me up today or tomorrow for a phone interview. Now I feel sleepy, but I don't want to sound groggy if they do call and wake me up...

"Sound upbeat, make them feel like they can practically feel you smiling over at the other end of the phone!" we will see how that goes.

Second, my phone would probably stop embarrassing itself in another 2 week or so. Yes! I can order it in. It's called a dust cover, and would cause me 4 dollars. Should have just send the email first. Tried calling their hot-line. Put me on hold forever, I thought it was only about 10 minutes. Nope, according to my indecently dressed phone, it was 18 minutes. The second time around, it took like 5 seconds to connect through and the phone conversation was done in 3 minutes. I think I may have placed 2 orders now, one through email and the other through the phone. Well, I did tell the operator I email them, and asked her to check. Okay, waiting for them to contact me back now in another 2 weeks...

My art project! It's done! I think I spent about 2-3 hours last night finishing it. Quite proud of myself actually. Hahaha, it's as prettified as it can be with checkered brown wrapper. Well, there's still a side of the separator showing its true Marbolo cardboard self. Hahaha, our disc will turn yellow no more!

The front view, I actually planned to have just a bit of gap between the top and the window grill, but it turns out taller than I planned. This is actually better, I think. Fits nicely into the space. ^__^

The top view. Brown wrapper. My elder sister thinks it look bad, but I'm alright with it. Nice even. Just glad my mum did not pick anything flowery or with hearts/bears all over.

The side, with the Marbolo band showing....Was actually planning to cover it yesterday night with additional cupboard I have left, but was too tired in the end. I'll see how it goes, if I really cannot stand it, I would do something then. Think it would just stay like this though.

I'm so proud of this. The loose sleeve compartment. I keep losing disc that we keep on their own, tucking them into all corners of our house. Now I can just place them all here, bright idea!

My phone feels naked!!!

I lost the cover for my charger port on my phone! DOTS. I don't know when or where I lost it. Was looking at my phone and all of a sudden, I noticed it's not properly clothed! Went all over the house looking for it, not to be found...

It was still around on Monday, charged my phone then. Should have placed it back on as per my habit...Well, hoping to be able to get/purchase one more from samsung. The person answering the email must be "wth? o_O purchase it?" Seriously, it would work fine, just that it would feel naked to me. Not to mention how fast dust accumulates in our house, I cannot imagaine the state of the phone if I am to let it remain naked.

Here, my naked phone. 对不起, 失理了...Ignore the dust on my keyboard...

Okay, I obviously had nothing to do. Ended up playing with the digicam. Hahaha (I'm still half-upset with my naked phone. Hope the Samsung people answer me asap) Took photos of things around me to amuse myself. Of course, around me stills means where I do not have to get off my lazy ass...

Toes! Just painted them. Purple! Well, I cannot seems to find a nice purple, dark and matt. However, I don't mind this too. I still want that deep dark purple too...

Then, my color set...Most of them are from MISSA, where they sell them rather cheaply. The black one is from Watsons and another from FaceShop and . Regretted buying that though...The colour does not look as nice on my nails as it did on the tape, even with many coats. Base coat and top coat, I still need to get used to the thick handle of the top coat...

Where I keep my colors. Along with the polish thinner which I have yet to use. The file I used to even the surface of my toe-nails. The toes-separator thing, which hurts my toes as it is too hard. Well, I stole it from my mum's shop... Cotton wool and toothpick to clean off my dirty out-of-line painting...

Ta-da! Closed and cramped-looking. I need to get a bigger box, or I should just stop buying new nail polish... >__< Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Nail polish remover!!

My fan. LOL, got this to cool down my laptop before(May it rest in peace. Though my dad fixed it, it's just not the same to me anymore...), and now it is to dry off my toe nails. My sister used it too, when I succeed in forcing her to switch off the air-con.

JIN! The guy on my desktop. Part of a six-member japanese boyband. I cannot believe the fandom wank he caused when he announced he was going to America to study English. DOTS. Fans online were going NO!!! CANNOT LEAVE! NewS's fans were telling them to shut it left and right as two of NewS's member have been suspended since eons ago for underage-drinking. ....AND~~Now he's back! I think he left for less than 6 months? Anyway, this is a billboard commerical for DoCoMo phones. Nice...when are we going to get DoCoMo's phones? I won't mind signing up for 3G plans if they imports these phones in. Japan = 3G...

My sister! You can really tell I'm bored now, can't you?

My art project! LOL, to shade our discs from the sun to stop rhem from turning yellow. Using those cigarettes boxes that my mum has tons of. It's half-done by the way, NOT supposed to look like that. Still need to do the bottom and top, and cover it with wrapping paper so that it would look more presentable. I even did a separator for those disc in loose sleeves. Hehehe, so proud of myself.

Okay, done now. Going in for a job interview tomorrow again. Agency too, call center too, only for a bank this time around....

Tuesday, April 24

and the process begins all over again...

Finally got off my fat ass and went looking for a job. Went for my first interview today with an agency for a job as customer servicer in a call center. Shift work, $9/hr, so the minimum pay would be around 1.6K - 1.7K excluding allowances. Just have to stick out for 9 months till February 2008 if you don't like the idea of converting to permanent or you have to pay them back the money for the training period.

I hate interviewing at agencies. They mostly have explained everything to you over the phone and they still want you to go down for a actual face-to-face interview. And all you do is fill out and sign their forms while the actual interview would mostly likely just be them asking you "So, do you have any questions?" Dots. If I have questions, mostly I would have asked you over the phone the first time you called me. The interview would most likely last about 10 minutes. Freaking waste of time.

Then, traveled back to Jurong Point to have lunch with SeeYan. She took half a day's leave for a job interview too, with TTSH. LOL So, she went back to work and I am now back at home. In quite a dilemma if I should accept this job or not if I get it. The money is good. 1.6K - 1.7K. However, it's shift work, so I wouldn't be able to sign up for any supplementary art courses like I planned too. Well, let's see if they called me within the week for an second interview first.

Let's just take this one step at a time.

My first complaint letter (outside of what we required to write in Poly)

Re: Bus-driver of 852 (No: TIB1011U) to Bukit Batok Interchange on 21st April 2007

Dear Sir/ Ma’am

On 21st April 2007 at 3.15PM, I boarded the 852 bus that was on route to Bukit Batok Interchange at the bus stop in front of Serene Centre. The bus arrived at Bukit Batok Interchange at around 3.40PM. The license plate number of the bus that I board was TIB1011U.

Till now, I am irate that this incident happened to me. When the bus was flagged down, there were three passengers waiting to get onboard the bus. I was the third person waiting in line. Standing closely behind the second passenger, I have my right foot on the first step of the bus, wanting to get on, when the male Indian bus driver closed the door on me.

He had my foot trapped between the doors. In pain, I banged on the panel of the doors trying to get him to release the door so that I can get my foot out. I have to presume he know I was there in front of the door as he was looking in my direction. To my shock and horror, the bus jerked as if it was about to be driven away. Due to the jerk, I lost my balance and fell to the ground landing on my behind and palm. This definitely worsened the situation that I was in. I was on the ground of the bus stop in an extremely awkward position with my right foot extended out and up trapped between the doors. Luckily, a lady waiting for her bus at the stop saw my prediction and quickly stepped forward and banged very loudly on the door. The door was only opened after another fifteen seconds, finally freeing my leg.

Firstly, I have to express my extreme irritation and disappointment at the bus driver. From the very beginning, this incident should not have happened. I was clearly standing behind the second passenger waiting to get onboard. I am certain I did not give off any signals that I have no intention to board the bus by looking around, down at the ground etc. I do not know why the bus driver was in such a hurry to close the doors. The bus was not holding up any traffic as it was the only vehicle in the bus lane at that time. I would have to assume he did not check to see if anyone else wanted to board or alight like other bus drivers have by “actually looking” at the door or his mirror for the alighting door. If not, he would have definitely seen me still in front of the door.

Second, I have to doubt his ability to drive a vehicle that is meant for public transportation due to his slow reaction. As I mentioned above, after my fall, the doors was only opened after fifteen seconds. I have to ask if one is expected to pull and struggle to get one’s leg out on her own in this situation? Never mind that the rubber lining the doors are tight as befitting the purpose of trapping the cold air inside in an air-conditioned bus? I would allow him the excuse that he was shocked at having caused such an accident for being slightly slower in reacting, however fifteen seconds is definitely too lengthy for “being in shock”. If he was to take fifteen seconds to react each time, he most definitely should not be working in the public service line. What if the bus he was driving was involved in a accident?

Also, I strongly suggest you send this bus driver for an eye-checkup. I realize I am sounding a tad too sarcastic here, but this accident is a bit too ridiculous to have happened in the first place. The small number of people (three including me, to be exact) boarding the bus, and he could not see me? It was not like I was hidden or being camouflaged by the greenery. For your information, I was dressed entirely in black.

Last but not least, I have to convey my acute displeasure at the lack of apology I received from the bus driver. When I finally got onto the bus, I received no apology whatsoever from him, and was in fact being stared at by him like I was an animal on display in the zoo. Perhaps I was showing an unpleasant face as I was in pain from falling on my tailbone, but this does not justify his atrocious behavior. Maybe this lack of apology can once again be blamed on his slow reaction? In any case, I did not stand around waiting for a reaction from him as I was still in pain and liked very much to sit down. Hence, I simply made my way to the back of the bus to get a seat.

I regret my use of strong and sarcastic wordings, but I feel anything less would be not able bring my displeasure across adequately enough. I strongly suggest this particular bus driver be sent for a refresher course on the proper way to drive and handle a bus. I have also noticed he drove faster than other bus causing the bus to stop rather abruptly at some stops.

I look forward to hearing from you on the company’s next course of action.

Your sincerely,
Sandy Tan

Bloody hell, my palm and butt still hurts....I don't care if they don't do anything, I just want to make my displeasure known. Of course, it would not be too bad on my ego if this guy get a good dressing down because of this.'s two pages long in word. Hahaha, ya, WCOM said you are not supposed to show anger - that it does not help, a calm letter can get your point through...but ya, hahaha...i need to crap so much to get the sufficient length for that calm letter in WCOM. Anger is definitely nicer. 2 pages is definitely a winner over a short 1 page with additional crap in it.

Coffee, thank you.

Mah mah, as soon as I add in the invoices for the coffee powder, I'll be done with my mother's accounts. And this short delay is due to no fault of mine. My mother forgotten to pass the file to me all along. LOL

KK, 403 Forbidden error is really kind of pissing me off. It seems that only Singnet users are experiencing it, quite a number of complaints in forums and such. It's affecting Livejournal and clubbox. And these two are the few sites that I surf regularly. >_<

Tomorrow (Today) is the Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day. Angela needs to get back to me on if we are going or not. Think she's working, no idea. Last i heard, she was calling YX over the phone around 4pm plus. Well, I'll see how it goes.

Monday, April 16

i'm back online...

Ya, so I'm back online. Backdated my whining post, 2.5 days without internet, torturous really, and I spent a good part of one day at YX's party. Lost my about 900plus of my clubbox's quick download points.

YX's party is quite a success. She got sabotaged quite a lot. Thrown into the pool twice, creamed in the face once with cake (thanks to Angela) and sprayed with party spray and snow form countless times. LOL

The four of us - Angela, YX, HP & Me. This is YX still looking pretty before the dunking commenced.

The bunny that YX got as one of her B-Day gift. She told me it died. One day! Apparently, it was frightened to death, R.I.P

Also, about the work as a cashier at the photo-developing shop. I'm no longer needed. They managed to hire a full-time on Sunday, so Sunday night itself (last night) was my last day. Thirty-two dollars. Okay, I got to play with the cutter for IC-sized photo. Mindless fun. Not too bad. xD

Friday, April 13

Wey!? Nade!? Wei Shen Me!? Why!?

I have no internet connection again! And this time, it's for the entire day - 13th April! This is actually quite pathetic, typing out in notepad. I wasted one day of my clubbox-points! I missed out on gaining the usual 100 plus of mileage points for the day on clubbox! Can anyone tell my world revolves around clubbox??

Well, in any case, at least something productive came out of it. I completed another file of my mother's accounts. One last file to go, before calculating the sales, rental, blahblah etc. Will continue to work on it after I completed my pathetic typing. Hwaiting~! Ganbatte~!

You can really tell the extremes of my fangirlism by the amount of fangirl languague I know. I can safely and accurately conclude I know more fangirl korean than fangirl japanese now. Well, since the early days of obsession with korean variety shows, I have always thought korean sounds more similar to chinese than japanese. Even though the transition of the language goes from chinese to japanese to korean...No one agrees with me of course, but I really do think so.

Started working out at a photo-developing shop today. 5pm - 9pm. Not going to do anything interesting like developing photos or even helping to take passport-sized photos. I'll mainly be doing the cashiering and assisting with the digital printing machines. It should be all right seeing I'm just helping out till the shop-owner manage to hire a permanent staff. I won't be allowed to read when there's no customers, so it would be a classic case of "大眼瞪小眼". Small talk is not my forte.

Will be attending YX's 21st birthday party tomorrow/today. All-white theme. Was actually going to go in my elder sister's old NanHua uniform, since I have no white bottoms. However, my mother don't allow it. "好意思吗? 好 像 沒有人要的 孩子." She went to got me clothes. Pretty nice clothes at that. So yeah, I should be thanking YX instead. Going early to help with the preparation. Going to bring camera along, see if there's any funny photos to be taken in the stage of preparation.

So, hwaiting all the way! And I still want my internet back!!!

Sunday, April 8

Bloody hell....

Give me my diarrhoea back! Bloody hell, now I can't shit at all, and I still have to endure the stomachaches! I want to shit, my body tells me I need to shit, but I can't. Pain, my god, the pain.

I think this has to be the most distressful period of unwell I have ever went through. Even the food-poisoning I went through last year was not this bad. Faint, breaking out in cold sweat, vomiting and diarrhoea, all that went away in 2 days! My upper-secondary days are tolerable. Runny nose, headaches that caused me to moan - "我要死 了" daily can be relieved with Pandora.

This time, nothing works. It's been a week! Seriously, it started last Sunday with a vague scratchy throat. Well, nothing is wrong with it, with the stuff I eat. Fried and all that. Then it got worse. The bloody headache that travels from between my eyes to the back of my head. Then split to half to dominate the sides.

Then come the diarrhoea that left me giddy. Half giddy with symptoms itself, and half giddy with thoughts I may drop the few desired kilograms. The activated carbon did stopped the diarrhoea. However, now I cannot shit!

Argh....My headache isn't helping too. I can not move, and it would be pounding away at the side of my head. Seriously, I was contemplating the acts of the crazy people. Putting a drill to my head. One lady did that and survived. Well, with a hole in a head, but still she got rid of her headache. Maybe I can too. Though hers was at the forehead.

Told my mum, if this continues, I'm going to the doctor tomorrow...

Friday, April 6

My hangup

You know you are too obsessive when you think that getting diarrhoea can help you lose weight because of your inability to retain food in your body. So, yeah, I'm getting too obsessive.

Was actually thinking that I just might be able to lose that few kilograms that I wanted if this continues on. Well, that's five days straight of diarrhoea now... Let's see if this Norit - activated carbon pills of my mum works.

Thursday, April 5

Someone send me a "Get Well Soon" card...

I have been having diarrhoea straight for four days now, in addition to the bloody headache and sore throat... Seriously, didn't really mind it the last 3 days because it just make me want to eat less...

Today - Keep wanting to go if i so much as eat a pack of chips or drink water. Adding to that burning ass sensation, just not feeling too good today...
