It’s a Hot Day!

It’s a hot day today… wanted to go shopping but the weather’s making me just too nua.  Went to visit my bunnies… haven’t been spending much time with them since i started work ‘cos there’s always some sort of event/function at least twice a week after work… so i’m usually too tired by the time i come home at night to play with them.  My darling bunnies… i miss them!

Went round taking lots of photos of the bunnies… the Canon Ixus 60 is really good.  Batt life is definitely better than my Nikon 3700.  I’ve taken like 100+ shots with it and the batt’s still running fine… the 100+ shots were taken over a span of 2 weeks plus?

Took this photo of Pinky (click on it & check out his cute little tongue!)… hehe… i think he’s absolutely the cutest bunny on earth.  If he wasn’t such a pampered prince at home,  he’ll probably be out modelling.  Hehe.  I think he’ll make a fantastic model… after all, he knows how to pose for the camera… jump on chairs to make the shots more interesting, etc.  This photo says it all… “it’s hot today!”

Talking about hot stuff… the hot topic in office the past few days of ‘cos, was about the stupid gal who got fired during her first week.  A colleague from the same dept as her told me that her true colours started showing on her 2nd day of work.  Apparently, they were all making small talk in the morning and they asked her to join them.  Her curt reply was, “I don’t engage in personal conversation”.  Whoa… touche!

Hehe… anyway, knowing there’s a vacancy, i thought of a good friend of mine from sec sch days… make that sec sch + JC + ex-colleague from my 1st company.  Haha.  Somehow, i felt that her personality and skills would suit the post… so i asked her whether she was interested in the position.  Anyway, she sent in her resume, went for the interview, and 1 day later, she got the job.  Haha.  She’s supposed to give the official “yes” to the interviewer today… after a slight negotiation on salary.  I’m really looking forward to her joining me at work.  It’s always nice to have friends around.  🙂

It’s 2:18pm… what should i do now?  Sleep some more?  Watch some episodes of My Lovely Samsoon that i missed?  Or drag myself to go shopping?  Ooh… i forgot to mention… i had a 2nd farewell dinner thrown for me last night… and Uncle Bunny even bought me vouchers from Tangs & Robinsons, out of his own pocket.  I’m really touched by his effort in organising the whole dinner thing & his gift.  Sigh… really nice group of agents.  I’ll miss them.

Disturbed

I’m quite upset now ‘cos 2 of my entries (Best of the Best and Best Parking Idiots Photo) on 28 Aug 2006 apparently disappeared. Thankfully, i managed to find a cached version of the page from Google. (THANK YOU GOOGLE FOR TRAWLING THE NET!) If not for the cached version, i wouldn’t possibly remember what i wrote regarding my darling Muah Chee… and i actually totally forgot about the photo from parking idiot. 🙁

Now i’m just wondering how many other posts have i lost, if any? It’s kind of upsetting isn’t it? I don’t know what’s the reason that these 2 posts disappeared… i’m pretty sure i didn’t delete anything ‘cos i haven’t been blogging the past few days. Hope these are the only 2 posts that went missing. 🙁

Hire & Fire

The new gal who started work the same day as me? She got fired. Happening man… heard she just set the record for the fastest hire & fire in Eon… not that it’s something i would ever want to challenge. Haha.

Apparently, she was having a one to one training session with her boss when she kept sending sms-es. Her boss asked her to stop and she allegedly (hey i wasn’t there in person!) answered him back saying, if he can make personal calls to his wife, and if colleague A can surf the Internet, and colleague B can do don’t-know-what else, why can’t she send sms?

I think her boss tried to explain that the company’s not a slavedriver so obviously it’s ok if u do a little bit of personal stuff during office hours. But to sms continuously during a training session (not to mention a one to one session), is just not right!

Sheesh… i don’t know if she’s just plain stupid / rude / no EQ. My boss says she’s from some really rich background so he feels that she’s just some spoilt rich kid who refused to change her lifestyle even after she started work. Although this is her 1st job after graduation, the extent of her stupidity / rudeness / lack of EQ amazes me lah. The few friends i’ve told this story have laughed and laughed at how she got fired. Hehe… oh well, guess it is quite funny in a i-can’t-believe-there’s-someone-like-that way. Hahahaha.

Like an Ulcer…

Have u ever experienced happily munching away on some yummy food when u bite the insides of your mouth? I HATE the feeling ‘cos it jolts me from my enthusiastic enjoyment to this rude, sharp pain in the mouth. I get even more pissed when i use my tongue to touch the area and realise there’s blood. It just totally pisses me off lor… although it’s not a life & death kind of injury but i just hate it. I think it’s probably the rude end to my enjoyment that gets me so riled up about it. (Thought of this analogy ‘cos it just happened when i was eating my fishsoup dinner just now).

That brings me to my peeve for today. Was happily surfing the Internet for information on my latest favourite TV serial, My Lovely Samsoon, when i got a call on my hp. I was quite happy to hear my hp ring ‘cos i just updated my ringtones to songs from the soundtrack of Samsoon… so i was glad to hear someone call & help me “test” my ringtones.

However, the call came from some stupid financial planner who didn’t even introduce herself! Her opening line went, “Hi, is this Uptowngal? Is this a convenient time to talk? CC recommended me to call u… I’m not sure if CC has mentioned me to you?”

Hello Miss Moron! U didn’t even id yourself, how am i supposed to know if anyone has mentioned u to me b4? DUH!! I would have rolled my eyes over the phoneline if that were possible. (Till now, i still don’t know her name.)

I said, “No, i have not talked to CC so i didn’t hear about u.”

The stupid FP went on to say something about how she was in a discussion with CC & he told her that i’m “a very successful person in my field of real estate.. blah blah blah”. I was quite annoyed by this time. Like… moron… don’t try to sar kar (curry favour) me ‘cos that doesn’t work lor!

Anyway, i was just really irritated lah… so wanted to cut the pain short. Told her that i’m no longer in real estate (which left her stumped for words), and that i’m now in the insurance industry as a broker, so i really didn’t want her services, and ended the call.

That was the most polite i’ve probably ever been to a stupid salesperson who doesn’t even have the common sense to tell the prospect her name. Argh. Stupidity & a lack of common sense makes me mad. I was very tempted to tell her that i hate it when financial planners call me to try to solicit my business, and that i have nothing but contempt for people like her.

And what did that stupid CC take me for? A fat goose for his colleague to chop? Hello! Being my ex-bf, shouldn’t he have the brains (oh… wait… that figures why he’s the “ex”) to know that i HATE insurance agents (especially those masquerading in the more atas name of “financial planner”) calling me up?? Like DUH! Why on earth would i want to tell a perfect stranger my financial status? On what basis would i ever trust a stranger to plan my finances for me? As though i’m not annoyed enough that CC tries to solicit biz from my friends, even after we break up! DUH!

Argh. Once again, this is a case of stupidity has no cure… in fact… stupidity seeks company!
