Going for vacation?

With the recent gloomy economy, instead of retrenchment to cut the company’s cost, we are encourage to clear our annual leave. I am not sure how it can help in cutting cost but if that is all we are required to do, I am glad to be on holiday instead of pay cut or retrenchment.


However I wish I have the extra dough and can afford to go for Vegas vacation like some of my colleagues. But I guess I’ll make use of the holiday to rest and visit my family.

10000 Steps

With my new mobile phone, I am now able to keep track of the number of steps that I am taking every day. Ultimately, I want to reach 10000 healthy steps a day although I barely reach 6000 now. It encourages me to walk more often, better than forcing myself to running on the treadmills at gym every day.

Maybe go lunch at a farther place every day or walk up the stairs?

Juicy Corn

I always thought that Cameron Highland is only well known for its roses, strawberries and vegetables. But little did I know (after going there twice before) that they grow excellent corns! The corns are extraordinary larger, very juicy and exceptionally sweet!

I bought 2 corn cups while I was there and enjoyed it very much! So I bought a pack of 4 to share with my housemates. I cooked it yesterday night and not surprisingly, all my housemates love it. They said it was very juicy and sweet!

Although the price is a little higher compare to the normal corn. However I think it is worth the price! So, must buy more on my next trip, whenever it is.

10 pounds!

My colleague has been hospitalised for the past 2 weeks due to illness. He is back to the office last Wednesday and many of us were surprised to see him! He has lost almost 10 pounds, almost effortlessly. Initially we thought that he took the slimming pill  but it was all due to appetite lost during his time in the hospital.


The girls are surely envious of his weight loss within 2 weeks!

Clubs

There is many sport club in my company; from badminton to basketball to the latest tennis club. I am no fan of sports and hardly exercise, thus I did not join any of them. But now I heard that they might start some other club to interest that non-sport fan. 

A guitar club, perhaps? That is the rumor I heard from my colleagues over the lunch. I heard some guitarists in the company always discuss about guitar and new songs to play. For me, I am not a guitar fan as well. I am still waiting for them to start a club that I will be interested in.

No Supervision~

My office is still rather quiet despite 25 minutes after normal lunching hour? Reason? All the managers are away for an expensive meeting at Malta! Yup, u heard me right. It is an expensive one as the exchange rate is higher, even higher than UK Pound.
The exchange rate is 11 to RM1. I am not sure of the currency they’re using over there but 11 to 1 is definitely very high! They’ll be away for a week and I suppose the staffs are getting a little naughty without much supervision :P

knowledge sharing

Today is my turn to do knowledge sharing to my team members and another 2 members from another team. I’ll be sharing my knowledge on my latest module, Asset. It is an on going programme that we have been having since a couple of months ago, after we finished our projects. However it is the first time I am sharing with them. I’ve done my preparation and hope it goes well. ^.^ Only 1 hour though~

Good luck to me!

Travelling Around

During lunch just now, we passed by a tour agency. Sharon asked me if she has been on cruise before and I said I have. She was full of envy as she always want to go for one but it was out of her travel budget.


For me, I always want to travel on an RV around the country and stop at parks at night. I think it is a great way of travelling around with your temporary and comfortable home with you.

If only I could afford the time and money!

A Guest Tonight

Tonight I have a special guest at our house. It is my ex-coursemate CY who came to KL for another ex-coursemate wedding lunch tomorrow. She’s staying in my room tonight and thanks to James who borrow the extra mattress.

So I just need a new bedsheet to cover the mattress and gave her another bedsheet as blanket as I don’t have extra one! And a pillow too. She just arrived for several hours. Hope she has a comfortable stay here. =)

 

Fasting

Yesterday while playing the two games in the team events, I was standing with my Malay friend. She complained to me that she’s very tired and wanted to rest instead of playing the game. At first I thought she didn’t get enough rest.

Then it hit me, she’s on fasting! No wonder she’s so tired. She told me that she ate very little in the morning as she got no appetite, only some vegetables. As a result by 3pm, she was already tired and hungry but she needs to work. After the games, we were treated to ice cream and mooncake.

But pity her; she had to watch us eat. I think it must difficult to be fasting and fight all temptations.

I am not sure if I am able to do so. I lost my temper when I am hungry. :D
