Another Year Gone

Alright, so here's the last post for the year. Sorry I've been cutting down on long fancy posts with lots of pics. Time constraints. It's stocktake season at its peak, and the audits are just beginning.

But that's not the point here. I'm here to thank everyone for making 2010 such a great year for me. That includes you too. Yes, you. Don't look behind and see who's behind you. I'm sure I emerged from this year a little wiser than when I stepped into it, thanks to you guys. I've been arranging all the photos taken this year and I realised just how wonderful the year was. I had a great time, no doubt.

Next year is going to be a whole new adventure. Hey, I'm going into my DEGREE program! If that's not a big milestone I don't know what is. It's going to be real good. I can sense it. OPTIMISM, folks.

Let's hope you're this optimistic about the new year too, eh? Happy New Year, and may the Force be with us (again) in Year 2011. :D

Merry Christmas!

*Borrowed a random pic from Google images*

And so it's Christmas once again. Well, as of now, not yet, but it's going to be. So here's wishing all my dear readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in advance. I hope the past year has been fruitful and enjoyable for all of you, and may the coming year be equally kind, if not kinder, to you all.

Oh, and be good, 'cos Santa Claus is coming to town! :D

1 Week Into The Job

...and I'm still alive. Survived some weird stuff in the office and 2 stocktakes. Stocktakes can be fun, as you get to run around and see new places, but they can be pretty messy too. You'll never believe how dusty a warehouse can be.

Anyway, people in the office have been quite nice to the newbies, and the other interns have been great company. But the office still being the office, I had to tone down on some of my more ridiculous antics and jokes that I normally reserve for close friends. Definitely less cold jokes. A lot less (practically nil). So things can be pretty dull sometimes.

One good thing is I come home exhausted everyday, so I tend to sleep better at night. Lolz I've gotta go now. Helping out with an interim audit early tomorrow. Hope this blur guy doesn't mess up XD

Balik Pulau, Narnia

Family outing. Went to Balik Pulau to enjoy the famous laksa and just jalan-jalan. I haven't had laksa for about 75 years I think. I only order it when my mom convinces me that it's good haha

This is what i'm talking about... as though you haven't seen it before...

On the way back we stopped in the middle of nowhere for a bit of sightseeing, so here are some random photos, taken with the skill of a grizzly bear handling a camera.

Spotted this little guy on a stone. I could tell it was slightly irritated by my presence.

Trees (what else?)

Later at night I went for my first midnight movie. Voyage of the Dawn Treader. The third movie for the week. I've really outdone myself this time. Anyway the movie wasn't bad, but I still prefer the previous 2 Narnia movies.

As usual, I put up the movie poster and help a little with the marketing.

After the movie and some mamak food, I couldn't help but notice Queensbay was super quiet. Almost completely abandoned. I have never seen Queensbay like this before, so I took some photos ( I hear some of you mumbling 'sampat'). So here they are...

Lights still on, but no one there.

All's quiet.

Even the road was empty. I spent some time walking in the middle of it.

All right, I guess that's all. Oh, and tomorrow will be the first day of my internship. Honestly I don't know what to expect, but wish me luck.

Another Movie

I've always had a soft spot for Disney's animations, and I must say: Disney's done it again! They've gone back to their classic style of making cartoons, complete with crackpot humour, cute songs, a princess and a prince (in this case, a thief). Rapunzel is surprisingly nice, and that's probably why it was so hard trying to get seats for this animation.

A very cute variation of the original Rapunzel story.

I actually never intended to watch this one. I went for a stroll in Botanical Garden with my usual buddies, and we went for the movie later since we had nothing else to do. I must say we were all very entertained. I still have a few songs from the movie stuck in my head. They've been playing all day. That's how good it is.

Mondays with Harry, Tuesdays with Morrie

It has been some time since I last watched a movie. Partly because of the exams, partly because I did not know what to watch. Today I reentered the cinema to watch Harry Potter on the big screen.

The adventure continues for the boy wizard...

This movie actually exceeded my expectations. Definitely better than the mess they made out of some of the previous instalments. They still left out some key parts from the book and overdid other parts, but all in all I enjoyed it. Remind me to catch the 2nd part when it hits the cinemas.

Flying spells and evil wizards (with weird noses) aside, I am glad to announce that I have finally found the time to sit down and properly read a book I have been planning to read since the past century.

Tuesdays with Morrie!

I haven't finished it yet, but I'm sure it's going to be a book worth my time. It came highly recommended by some of my very wise friends. A wonderful book that will make you laugh and cry, and I'm beginning to see why.

I'm Back! Again.

Finally! I'm FREEEEE!!!

Yes, FREEEEE!!!!!!!

The nasty papers are done with, and I'll be pretty idle. For the time being that is. I'll have about 1.5 weeks off, meaning I'll be doing...well...

...I don't know. Probably nothing, then I'll go for an internship. Just to see how those guys in the audit field run amok during their peak season. Maybe I'll go nuts with them and we'll all run amok together. Hopefully I'll learn a thing or two along the way.

But now is the time to relax awhile. Immediately after our exams we went for a steamboat dinner, just to celebrate the fact that we're still alive after being grilled for 4 semesters. I'll elaborate more on this one once the photos are made available for public viewing (and stealing) on Facebook.

Oh, and here's wishing Dato' Khoo Teng Shin a happy belated birthday. His mom planned a surprise for him and invited some friends over. How sweet haha! It was really nice. The last time I celebrated his birthday with him was say...at least 5 years ago. Time flies, and now we're aging, with grace, I hope.

That's for today. Till we meet again, remember to eat your breakfast. It's the most important meal of the day.
