What do you do if during the scanning of bags at the airport doesn’t allow you to bring the tripod into the plane as hand luggage? They insist that you have to check-in the tripod when you could carry it as hand luggage previously.

Your only concern is that the rough handling at check-in would spoil your expensive gadget.Do you argued with them or do you go to check in as instructed?Well, if there is another scanning counter, do not argue with them. Calm down, nod and proceed to another scanning counter and you might have your luck.

It happened to us and we managed to pull it off at the 2nd counter.I did the same method when my train card was bended and couldn’t be read at the machine. One of the counters refused to refund the value for me and thus I went to another station counter.

Yes, I got my refund value with the new card on the same day. ^.^

Have you ever noticed that if you do not monitor the date/day, it creeps very fast without you realizing it? Yes, in just a whoosh, it’s already 2013!Man, I thought 2012 has just arrived the day before and now it’s already 2013 without having me doing a lot of stuffs and appreciating the days. And so my age climb steadily and the time flies really so fast, I don’t know what it is chasing after. Christmas, again? I wonder if I take one day at a time, will it still pass me by so speedily and greedily?  I read that time seems to pass faster when we fall into everyday routine and doing nothing new. Maybe that’s true and well, I don’t know how to stop it.Time ain’t waiting for no one..

I am a small person with high metabolisms. To many of my friend, they think it is good to be like that. But to me, it means I have to keep eating. As I have small body, I couldn’t eat much at a time. I will get full easily. 

But the thing is, I digest them quickly and get hungry in a short while! Yes, I have to keep eating every few hours. That’s why I love snacking and tea time. In my previous company, I always have tea time with my colleagues in the pantry.
 But in the new company, it is not their culture to do so. Thus, I have my own little tea time at my cubicle~ Today, I am having Koko Krunch Duo cereal. Yum~

I used to go back to my hometown religiously every other weekend. But for the past year, the frequency is reduces to every 3 or 4 weekends once. I just find that my time is better managed when I am staying in KL for the weekend. But that doesn’t mean I do not want to spend more time with my aging parents at home.

At times, I do miss them a lot and wish I could be more filial and to go back more often. How I can do that more frequently and be a better daughter. :)

Missing my parents.. 

“But I eat so little, only 1 single piece. Why do I have to pay so much?” she moaned to me in MSN. “It’s so unfair! They eat so much and yet I have to pay for them”, she added.Well, I do not know what to say except that it is like that when you eat in a big group. If everyone is sharing all the food, ultimately the bill is equally divided no matter what you eat and what’s the portion you consumed.If you really feel unfairly treated, the only way is to voice it out and not to keep the unhappiness in the heart.Or else, just opt not to eat with them next round or insist on ordering food individually~

Spontaneously, I called Marianne and DT out for a drink on Friday night and both of them being the more available friends were eager to meet up too. It was great to meet up with old friends. Even though we do not meet as often as we like, or far too little due to distance, we have no problem of catching up and no moment of awkwardness.We could talk about our life, work, politic, economy and even happiness and anything under the sun! It’s something that I am unable to do with acquaintance.

Last weekend I went to visit a friend who has just moved in to her new house with her boyfriend. They are the second owner of the 10 year old house. As the house is pretty old, there are a lot of renovation for many parts of the house; floor, ceiling, cabinets, wall and others.

It is pretty expensive to renovate an old house to look like the pretty and comfortable! All it takes are money and a little patience to have a beautiful house~ How I wish I can upgrade my current apartment to a beautiful house.

Finally met up with my ex-colleagues from my ex-team after I left the company around 3 months ago! It was pleasant to see them again and they are quite the same. Only me has cut my hair and they said I look even younger now! Woohoo~

We had lunch at Little Taiwan, a new shop that opened in Avenue K. The food was quite nice but service was not excellent. Nevertheless, the place was full of customers.

We gossiped about the other colleagues, managers and the company structures and even the latest celebrity’s news. It’s fun to meet up with them again! Will do it again sometimes! :)

In my 3 years working experience, I only had been to one and only one team building in my previous company.

Nevertheless, it is an amazing experience that I can never forget as I really learn a lot during the team building. The most important thing for the people is to discover the team spirit and working together as a team player to achieve a shared goal.

I wish my current company will organise a team building for us to build better relationship among the colleagues. Right now, they are giving shopping vouchers as a reward to us. But we could use more activities to help us chill out.

“The windscreen is cracked again when I was in the highway”, my brother sms me as he was using my car for a year. The other time he broke the window glass when a small stone was hurled to the window when he passed by a man cutting the grass. I told him to get the windshield replacement as soon as possible before the windshield broke into thousand pieces.

I guess apart from my cheap health insurance, I should also get a windscreen insurance at the rate he is breaking the windscreen!

Well, I hope my brother would be more careful next time! Windscreen replacement doesn’t come cheap!
