Boredom Kills…

I’m darn bored in office now. Realised it’s more stressful trying to look busy, than to be busy. And stress kills. Therefore, boredom kills. 😛

Not to fear though… i made a new “discovery” today that is probably saving my life as we speak… heh… putting paper through the shredder is extremely therapeutic when u’re really bored! Great stress reliever! Hmm… while i’m at it, let’s debunk some myths i’ve come across recently.

1. U don’t get diabetes mellitus (DM) from consuming too much sugar. Without delving into the details, DM is basically a metabolic disorder… and having a family hx of DM increases your risk. But no… don’t blame the sugar. (So stop bugging me about my “kopi kar kar dai” aka “coffee extra extra sweet”).

2. Two kind but misinformed friends have sent me this email about how if u key in your ATM PIN in reverse order, the police will be alerted – u’re supposed to do this in the situation that u’re being threatened by baddies to draw $$ from your bank account. Hello? How on earth could this be possible? What if my ATM PIN was 111111? Then the police lagi busy right?

3. Just ‘cos i hang a jade bunny dangly thingy (sorry, i just liked the way it rhymes) on my hp doesn’t mean i’m born in the year of the bunny! Haha… i just gravitate towards all things bunny-like… nearly got sucked into buying a purple bunny plush toy when i went to the ATM just now! Hahahaha….

All I Want for Christmas

Christmas is coming!  Woohoo!  I didn’t always like the holiday season… sad memories tend to feel sadder during festive seasons.  But not this year!  I’m looking forward to Christmas!  In fact, i have stuff (ok, may not all are Christmas stuff but..) planned almost all the way till the end of the year.  (Wait… now i sound like i’m talking about my birthday festival again… wahaha). 

Started with dinner + drinks with my colleagues and a business associate from HK last night, belated birthday celerbation for my cousin tonight, another work-related drinks cum Christmas party tomorrow night, then Malacca this weekend with the cellgroup, meeting up with Preppy (haven’t seen him since i left Hall 11!) next week, an old friend’s wedding on 15th Dec, company D&D on 21 Dec, another friend’s wedding on 22 Dec, tea with Fuzzypillow  & Littlewee on Christmas eve, family Christmas lunch on Christmas day itself (it’s going to be our first lunch that’s not held at the old house at Katong), then a 2nd lunch with the cellgroup?  Heh.  And that’s only what i have planned for so far.  Hiak hiak.  More to come!!

Heard this song, “All I Want for Christmas”, when i was at Bugis just now.  Love the version that was sung by Olivia Olsen in Love Actually.  Love that movie man!  For a very long time, my favourite movie was My Best Friend’s Wedding.  Then i decided that it isn’t really a very good movie to dwell upon… ‘cos… it’s just too full of regrets.  No good.  Life isn’t meant to be lived in reverse gear.  Caught the movie Love Actually in 2003/2004 and fell in love with it since.  It’s good.  It’s about cherishing life.  Love it.  Yippee!

 

 

Love the part when Olivia Olsen points at the boy at the end… then goes on to point at the others and sings, “you, you, you…”.  Haha… the boy’s expression was priceless.  Sigh… just watching this video makes me feel teary.  Gosh!  I can be such a wimp!  (But never in public… never!).  Haha.  🙂

Happy 17 days to Christmas everyone!

You can Run but You can’t Hide

Had a real harrowing experience on the MRT today.  After a belated birthday celebration with my cousin tonight, we decided to catch the train home as the cab queue was just way too long.  The minute we stepped into the train, i saw it.  There it was, quietly perched at the top of the entrance of the train.  It was watching us.  No one seemed to notice its presence.

I nudged my cousin silently & pointed at it.  She jumped.  Her reaction caused this girl next to me to quake in fear and bury her head in her boyfriend’s chest.  The train was packed.  It was a late train… close to 11pm.  My cousin and i weren’t sure what to do.  I told her not to panic. 

“Keep steady.  I will keep my eye on it.”

After 15min, my cousin asked me if it had moved at all.  I said no… it was still in the same spot.  Suddenly, i saw it moving!  My eyes opened wide in shock! 

“It’s feelers are moving… it’s flying!”

My cousin turned, saw it fly, and we “siam-ed”.  We traversed so speedily through the crowd that we moved from 1 door to the next in 3secs.

Bloody roach.
