Each day, I still wonder where life will lead me.

From Monday to Friday; my mornings are very stressful, busy and incredibly rushed :) It's like trying to run a military-like operation - 6AM GET OUT OF BED EAT MY BREAKFAST BRUSH MY TEETH GET MY CLOTHES ON GOES TO WORK MANAGING THE BUSINESS - where my troops are most unwilling and unreasonable at times. So my weekend mornings are very important to me. Relaxed, easy, no-fuss mornings - they are as precious as gold :)
Work Tales - Subang Revamping >> looks pretty good, shaping up quite nicely, needed a few touch-up here & there. Only left the Battery Operated, Fishing & Nautism elements that needs to be fill up ASAP. Iron Butterfly have been very demanding (as usual)...but I am not going to give in to her much; only partially. At the end of the day; if any problem arises - Iron Butterfly will technically forgets that she gave me the instructions or the green light for the 'Go Ahead Projects' in the first place and the arrow will eventually points back to me :) So I have to protect my ass first.
THO Opening >> haven't even visited the site yet.
There are days when I questioned my sanity for doing what I'm doing (i think that sort of things happens, especially when you are working 14+/- hours in most days), I think I'm quite stoked with the overall experience. Sure, there are hiccups and such, but I know that I have learned a lot. And, I even manage to have some fun along the way! Hectic is good; hectic means advancement! I really can't complain. Through the sweat and long hours, I know what I brought upon myself is worth every ounce of effort. Sure, at times...I've gotten very frustrated at myself, my incompetence and my inability to handle ungodly amount of stress.
I've finally come to terms with my anger and have turned over a new leaf :) I didn't kill anyone this week :) Yes, looking back they are pretty silly and unproductive. I've learned from my mistakes.
With GOD's Grace - I'm a lucky lucky girl indeed! I've got all of my organs functioning properly, my job & career, a supportive & loving family, meaningful friendships and just about everything that I need to sustain a sincere smiley face through it all :)

i am yingze

Blur - Midlife: A Beginner's Guide To Blur.
I bought their compilation CD and I truly love all of the songs in it. Truly they are the Britpop's pioneer. I'm playing their CD non-stop :)
Work Tales - Subang Revamping & THO Opening. Things aren't looking good. I lie in bed wishing the world would swallow me up :)
The past will be haunting me soon. Seth will be joining Celtic's department. Both of forces. Funny, how our life turns up to be after all these years :) As I begin to grow up...much wiser...much mature...I begin to view Seth & Celtic from a different perspective...a positive one though...because of them...of their attitudes & behavior...I have learned so much...expereinced so much...see so much...gained so one actually came this close as I did...they have enriched & built me. Look at me now; I am carefree, I am an independent decision-maker, I have the freedom to call the shots and to enjoy the fruits of my labor :) No doubt, it really is about hard work and nothing else. There is just no substitute for hard work. But of course, you cannot work hard stupidly.
I am now in remission and strive to live a healthy, stress-free life filled with love and laughter :)

Every morning is a new beginning to something different

For the past few weeks, I have been praying to GOD to humble me down. This is because I have become very demanding, pushy, hot-temper, nasty, bitter, arrogrant...everything...due to WORK. I know that if I to continue to follow this path, many people will hate me...and I too will hate myself for it. I hate being like this but I don't know what to do :) So I pray.

And GOD did answered my prayers!...via Celtic :) Of all people, of all communication channel. And I accept them graciously. It's just that, I had a long day and...well; getting told off no matter how subtle it doesn't do any good. I must admit, I was more angry and irritated by it all. But I finally took a step back and saw for myself...I am now finally convinced...I'm glad it came to me early and...I'm very proud that in the end I took them very positively. It's no loss. I'm truly humbled & thankful :)

"It's not unusual to encounter people who'd try to take shortcuts through life, or undercut you in their quest to get to the very top. In such a fiercely aggresive environment; ethics & intergrity have become secondary. Good guys often lose out. Yet, once in a while, it is very encouraging to still come across people who are capable of making a name for themselves through sheer talent, hard work & passion".

get up and go now

(1) Life is too short not to order fries.
(2) Give charitably, generously and anonymously.
(3) If you love someone, tell them. Don't hold back.
(4) Don't make a scene.
(5) Never regret staying at home with a good book.
(6) Learn to cook one dish really well.
(7) Remember that nice guys do finish first. If you don't know that, then you don't know where the finish line is.
(8) Thank You notes are to be written promptly by hand on personal stationary. Emails, phone calls and text messages don't count.
(9) It may be a small world but it's a huge planet. Grab every opportunity to see as much of it as possibly as you can. Most people don't.
(10) Keep your eye on the ball and follow through; both in sports & in life.
(11) Speaking of sports, pick a team and stick with them. There are a few things more important in life which is loyalty. It's a dying trait currently in short supply. Trust me. I'm a REDS fan :)
(12) If you feel the need to re-invent yourself, at least be original. No tattoos unless you're in the amed forces. No body piercings unless you become a pre-Columbian Tribal Aztec. No orange hair unless you join the circus.
(13) Learn from the bad as well as the good. Fall down, make a mess, break something occasionally. And always remember that the story is never over.
(14) Learn how to entertain yourself. Close the door, crank up the stereo & dork out. Invent new dance moves. Play the air guitar. Practise your touchdown moves. Too many people are self-conscious even when they're alone. Don't be one of those people.
(15) While you're at it, learn how to laugh at yourself :)
(16) When you realize that everyone comes from a dysfunctional family, life gets a little easier and you feel a little less crazy. The only normal people are the ones that you don't know very well.
(17) Happyness is not fame, money or power.

Exploit my talents

My Album of the year! :)
I love all of the 11 tracks in this CD :)
My favorites are 'The Show', 'Skipalong', 'Don't Let Me Fall', 'Trouble Is A Friend' and 'Dangerous & Sweet'. I love the unique, quirky, simple, arty & grass-roots lyrics and the indie, happy, poppy & not so main-stream sound. She's pretty, she's original, love her voice texture, her sense of style and most importantly; when she sings...she projects the right emotions. Not to mention, she have this super-relax, uber COOLNESS about her. Definitely the essence of her music! Lenka reminds me of Alanis Morissette - minus all of the anger of course :)
Baby Sis manages to get some free passes from FlyFm to catch Lenka's mini showcase at 1 Utama, New Wing. Emcee for the day was the lovely & hilarious duo of Ben & Phat Fabes (minus Nadia) who entertains the crowd effortlessly. They are basically 2 young guys who are good looking, charming, sweep everyone of their feet by talking about all kinds of crazy stuffs.
The first opening act was by this Singaporean male artiste by the name of Ariff...or was it Aliff? Then it was followed by our very own songstress - Amy Mastura.
Finally, Lenka & her band appear on stage and the young crowd went wild with excitement. Some parts of the performance were upmarket and stylish, but overall it was very cool, laid-back, arty, grungy and have an independent vibe to it. And the assemble were very cute as well; bringing their cute handicraft & small plush toy to decorate the small stage. Stylish and personalized :)
Her fans were happy, sparkly-eye and full of energy. It was thrilling, rewarding, pleasing and overwhelming for me. This is my first time after all; attending such a showcase :) Yes, I'm very ketinggalan in everything :)
In the meantime, I'll enjoy my weekend, and not look forward to Monday! :(
But I feel like the months just zoom by; thanks to the infamous thing that's called "WORK".

CIMB MALAYSIAN OPEN SQUASH CHAMPIONSHIPS 2009 - I am very very impressed that the Curve's Shopping Mall Management has the courage & creativity to bring in the tournament into the shopping mall concourse area! Wow! It's a very good exposure for the sport. When it comes to racquet sports in Malaysia, Badminton is the Number 1 all time favorite. Squash & Tennis have yet to reach such high status. But with such bold steps of having the tournament in a pedestrianized lifestyle shopping centre such as The Curve, it definitely will build the awareness and draws the crowd curiousity in getting to know the sport better.
The event was well organized...I love the glass court and the informative media kit.

I watched the Men Finals for a full 20 minutes between top seed Amr Shabana from Egypt playing against second seed Nick Matthew from England. It was a pity that I have to rush back home for dinner, thus I didn't manage to catch the Women Finals between our very own Nicol David who have created history when she bagged her fifth consecutive title by beating England's Alison Waters 11-6, 11-8, 9-11, 11-7 in the final.

I feel like a lazy blob right now :)

the road ahead is tough, so?

'STAY ACTIVE' = RM37K. What a relief! It does offers me...a glimpse of hope :) It was way better than 'a HEALTHY you' (RM14K). I've gained bits of knowledge here & there which will makes me better the next time. It's definitely also about me growing up as a person :)

I like to claim the month of August for myself. All of it :)
I want to indulge myself a little bit more. I want to sit back and remember the good things in my life. I want to celebrate the stuffs that really matter.
Today I celebrate happyness. My life. My family. My friends. My work. My self :)

Just Dance! - Ping's magazine is out! Malaysia's first dance magazine ever! Woo Hoo! :) I was completely in awe at the sheer beauty of this creation! :)

It was nice catching up with Miss Klein, Torres, Trix, Damian and Celtic over dinner last night at Sakae Sushi (an old favorite of mine). Pretty people with pretty stories :) We sat, we ate and we talk non-stop! We still have so much to say to each other! It was small but intimate. And it just didn't stop there, we continue with our second session at Coffee Bean. I have re-discovered the special bond that The Others & I shared. I know that as long as my heart is beating, their hearts are in sync with mine :)
