The lady said the pizza shall reach within 45 mins, but it's already an hour... Darl said better check the void deck. LOL.
What happen was, one of my friends called for fast food delivery, not only did the food arrived late, the main dish = burger wasn't in there! He discovered it and quickly run downstair and was lucky enough to catch the delivery man, but was unlucky enough as the delivery man was there eating a burger that looked like my friend's order. He confronted him, guess what was the reply,"No burger inside? You call the hotline to complain lor!"
Walaueh! Tak boleh tahan!! He finally got his burger after calling the hotline to complain about the staff, also had the meal FOC. Service so lauya, also dunno the free meal got free ingredient or not.. so generous. =.="
Our pizza finally arrived, but it's already cold, and tasteless too.
Short lunch break today as many people were on MC. So I lunch in, the Potato Salad looks good huh! Anyway, the main thing I wanna talk about here is not the Salad. Check out the 2 photos below:
Left : Photo taken with iPhone. Right : Photo taken with iphone, enhanced with PhotoCurves.
The before and after effect using PhotoCurves. Found this good application that can at least enhance the photo a bit before uploading it online, directly from the phone. Consider a very powerful app on phone & easy to use. Not bad!
Birthday present from kor & family, just nice for the coming trip.
Souvenirs from Lin who just came back from her Taipei+HK+Macau trip the night before. A smart calculator for conversion - just need to preset the exchange rate, after which enter the foreign currency amount, it will auto convert to the equivalent local currency that you want to compare.
Terminal 3, Changi Airport
Dian Xiao Er @ T3
As I was feeding Jrlyn, she responded,"慢慢吃". We all stunned then burst into laughing! Kor said this was the first time he heard this from her! LOL!
Jrlyn choosing her Crocs.
She pointed at the pink one and says,"This one." Hahaha! So cute! End up her papa bought her both! So young already started collecting shoes!
Ok the night is over, I still owe Darl his birthday present.. heez..
We went 12 rounds up the carpark before we found a parking lot, almost rooftop already and Darl said his head was still spinning after that... Booked 1 slot with Cynthia for haircut, but when reached I decided to cut my hair too. She told us about her Tokyo trip as she just flown back via A380 last week.
Had Tom Yam Ramen for dinner. I love Tom Yam!
ION. Picture taken from inside the car, must go for a proper shooting one evening.
Found it one day while surfing, coincidently we are from the same hometown! An engineer so talented who can put his thoughts into drawing, all I can say is - Impressive!
Haven't check back for awhile and when i revisited, sadly, Wafu Pafu were gone. Sorry to hear that. =( Well, one of the influences after reading his blog is that whenever we see hamster we will call it Wafu Pafu. Just like when people see cockroach they will call it 小强.
That day I was stucked with a customer, Celine waited for me and ended up no time for lunch, so I run out to ta-pao Salad, this was what we had. Got food but no enough time to eat. =(
Today worst.. the rain was so heavy that we couldn't go out to buy food. So we ended up snacking in the office. Either that the managers be more flexible about the lunch schedule, or we will have to get them to ta-pao food back for us during heavy downpour. Not a bad idea! Thank you in advance! LOL.
Woke up super early today as Darl was sending me to the Embassy before he went to work. Was browsing my Facebook on my way and spotted a remark posted by a friend who has the same birthday as me. She says : 一大清早~面打翻了，脚扭了，地铁迟了， 真衰。。 I'm not superstitious, but I somehow feel uneasy. My ex-housemate who is also having the same birthday as me, is very superstitious. Whenever he fall sick he will pre-empt me, and 2 out of 3 occasions I ended up sharing the same fate.
I reached the Embassy 20 minutes before it opened and was the second in the queue. 10 minutes later, there were more than 10 people queueing behind me. When the gate opened, the uncle queueing in front of me walked in first, I followed behind him, after the uncle pressed for his ticket, an auntie rushed to the front wanted to press, the uncle immediately pressed 2 more tickets and passed to me and a young man queueing behind me. Wah!! The uncle is so nice!! He looked not more than a messenger but he is so gentleman.
This reminded me of my encounter at an airline ticketing office last week. Haven't been to CBD for awhile especially during weekdays, seeing everyone in their heals and ties made me feel so out of place, LOL... Anyway, it was my off day and I was there to collect my air-tickets. First thing upon entering the office, I looked for the queue ticket dispenser but can't find. At that time, there's only one staff at the counter serving one customer, and another customer sitting at the sofa obviously waiting the be served. Awhile later, another customer in tie and blazer came in. The staff looked up and said,"Can you all take a ticket queue number pleasssse!!" She pointed at one corner and with the tone as if we were so disobedient. The guy who last came in almost long-jumped to the corner for his ticket. =.=" Jump queue... zzz... And you know how the dispenser looked like? A paper folded box with a stack of numbers inside, like those queue numbers distributed by nurse at those neighbourhood clinic . This ticketing office is trying to automate it but failed. They pasted an A4 size paper above the paper box with marker written words saying : Please Take Your Queue Number Here. (With an arrow drawn pointing downward at the paper box.) Nobody seems to notice their 'dispenser'.
Anyway, back to the Embassy, reached my turn, I handed in my application but they rejected my photo. Huh!? Doesn't look like me meh?? She said the photo was too old, need retake and submit by noon. Haiz... You know why... because the requirement stated "Submit a photo taken within 6 months". I happened to use the same photo appearing in my passport, and my passport was made more than a year ago!!! Wa-say!!! Speechless!!! She was nice enough to tell me that I could tryout at another Embassy situated next door, but when I pop by, the guard turned me down after knowing that was coming from their neighbour Embassy.
No choice... I've to walk 1km out to Orchard to take photo. I am not exaggerating, my GPRS tabulated : Nassim Road to Orchard = 1.8km. Luckily I found a shop @ 1km away. I spent 15 minutes at the shop, a saw an octopus took passport photo for a customer, photocopy documents for 3 customers, cropped and resized photos for 1 customer and served one customer collecting her developed photos. Wah... maybe I should set up a booth outside the gate of the embassy.
I went back to the embassy (another 1km), submitted my photo and walked back to Orchard (another 1.8km)... While I was walking along Nassim road, an old and dry tree branch slightly thicker than the broom stick fall from the tree and landed right in front of me, shattered into pieces when it hit the floor. O.o... I suddenly remembered my dad said a tree branch as thin as the last finger can pierce through the skull if it's falling from a very tall tree... =.="""""
After the Walkathon, I'm very hungry already so settled my breakfast at Burger King, having slight gastric but can't resist the coffee. I had Milo for the past 2 days already so today I must have coffee!!
ION ~ The Exterior
Pop by ION for the first time. Very big meh? I go round and round and keep coming back to the same spot. My colleague says it's soooo big like a maze until she couldn't find Takashimaya!! *Faint*.. We told her.. you'll never find it in ION..
ION ~ The Interior
Dropped by at Kinokuniya to place an order for a book before heading home. What a tiring day....
Oh ya.. 3 days later.. I'll have to walk in walk out again.. to collect the Visa... =.="
The USB port has been deactivated. Fine. The printing function has also been deactivated. LOL... So there's no external email, no USB port, restricted internet access and now, no printing function. If you want to print anything, must seek approval from your managers, and only the managers have the printing function.
You know what? Not a bad idea actually. Today my manager printed the documents I asked for, he collected them from the printer as I was on the phone, he even stapled them and then passed it to me. Wahaha! Imagine I could just name what I want and had it delivered to my desk!! What a brilliant idea!
Our breakfast before gym - the egg egg are so perfect! The coffee caused me gastric for the whole day.. =(
Darl brought Kor and Jrlyn out shopping for furniture while I dropped by at friend's house. Had our lunch at 5pm, haven't had anything since the egg egg this morning. Drop by at Dean's house to set up his wireless after that ~ yeah! It's done! He is happy that he can now use his laptop in front of the TV in the living room.
Dean gave Jrlyn a packet of Pocky and Jen gave her a dog dog. She was so happy and said loudly "Thank You Auntie"! So cute!
On Sep 30, 2009 @ 6.17pm, I was sitting in front of my computer with my legs folded up on my chair, suddenly my elbow touched my chair's arm-rest, I was very sure that I did not move my elbow, that means my chair moved, or the flat, or the earth!? I sat very still on the chair and observed, nothing moved, i only felt myself swaying left and right until a bit giddy, I thought I didn't have enough sleep. Later learnt that there was an 7.6M earthquake @ Southern Sumatra, Indonesia.
This is the first time I felt earthquake, though this is not the first time it happened around me. My mum says there was once when we were in Taiwan, the earth shook till the hanging lamp swinging left and right. I missed that as I was sleeping.
Last year when the Sichuan earthquake happened, we were in Shanghai. Darl called and told me that there's an earthquake and they had evacuated. Huh?! Earthquake? I was on the 65th floor of the tallest hotel in the world and I didn't feel anything. Knowing that I wasn't convinced, he told me everyone in the meeting room saw the blind hitting against the window and they started calling their branches around China and confirmed the earthquake. Hearing that, I made a call to the hotel concierge and the receptionist was like, "Huh?? Earthquake??" I therefore crawled back into the comfy bed continue watching the CNN news on the deadly Cyclone in Myanmar.
Few minutes later Darl called to check my whereabouts, STILL IN THE HOTEL!!! The concierge says there isn't any earthquake le... Anyway, to play safe, I grabbed the passport and evacuated, alone. Once out of the hotel, I'm faced with another disaster = ROAD CROSSING! Crossing of roads in Shanghai is really a scary thing to do, that is the reason why I'm so reluctant to get out of the hotel!
That night we received several calls from hometown to check if we were safe, they told us that it was a 7.9M earthquake @ Sichuan.
I was back to Singapore the next day while Darl continued his journey to Hong Kong, therefore did not experienced any aftershocks.
When I was sneaking out of the office, a colleague said,"Mollie! Not joining us to the KTV?" Aww.. "Oh.... yes... I'm just going to the washroom..". So ended up at the KTV, not too bad la.. with free food and entertainment. Anyway, May told me she wanted to share some secrets with me so I must go. LOL!
