Nice Team Games

I thought my manager has abandoned us, as there is no meeting or much communication for more than 2 weeks. But today, he called for a team event for the 2 departments that are under him. Surprisingly, he had come out with 2 games for all of us that required team work.

We were split to 5 teams, of around 5 people each. The first game was about memorizing a map which was quite fun. Second game was about IQ questions. Well, we didn’t win in both games but had lotsa fun.

At the end of it, manager treated us drumstick ice cream each and a mooncake from Purple Cane~ I hope we have more fun like this in the future~

 

Year End

Another few days to end this year. It has been a very memorable year for me with many milestones in my life. I have achieved certain things that I’ve wanted for few years. And I am glad of the way things have turned out.


I’ve also picked up a few skills which one of them is to pick up guitaring. Although I didn’t do as well as I would in this aspect, I’ve embedded some music skill and knowledge. At least I know how to pick up
guitar string for a friend as Christmas present and she was impressed.

For the next year, I am more sure of what I have to do and my focus. I hope it will be a good year; certainly many things to look forward!

 

Another Christmas Party?

In 2011, when we just moved into the new house, B and I organized a Christmas potluck party for our friends. And the year after that, we got lazy and didn’t do anything.

I felt that we haven’t been inviting people over for quite some times and decided that we should have a Christmas party this year. Some suggested having gift exchange but others want to spice up the game by having a wish gift; instead of getting random gift which might not be suitable and not used after that.

But I guess it is a little hard to achieve everyone’s wish list as someone wished for a film camera  Maybe we should have set a reasonable budget for the wish gift.

Looking forward for the party!

Fabulous Time For Shopping~

It is my favourite months to go to the shopping mall. Everywhere you can see the Christmas decoration and each year, they try to outdo the year before and other malls.

The festive season is strongest for Christmas compare to other festival although it is not the biggest festival in this country; I wondered why. Maybe people tends to buy more gifts for exchange in this festival even though they are not celebrating it.

And I just love to see the word Sale in almost every single store and it is a good time to get anything at all! Yes, finally it is time to save some pennies while buying gift.

One deed

After Adam had bought his new DLSR, he no longer use the memory card that his compact camers uses. And thus, he gave them all to me!


Now, I have 4 cards; two of them are of 2GB and another two are of 1GB! But 2GB is large enough for my usage during trips! I wish I can sell the rest of them but prices are so cheap now.

I ended up giving one to Michelle as she was going to buy one. Anyone else need them?

As a return, Michelle asked me if I want anything from musicianfriend.com; as she has friend who works there and might get some good discount. Oh, that’s sounds like a superb idea as I could get something for my friend birthday soon!

Baby Shower

Last weekend was the first time I attended a baby shower! It was for a distant cousin that is expecting her first child and it was really an experience for me. It was a fun way to celebrate the birth of her first newborn baby and boy; there were so much laughter, food and gifts! Some friends shared their experiences of the baby shower which they find quite unique and a remarkable experience! Imagine a room with spa and AV facilities!  

I think this great event is a wonderful beginning to welcome them to motherhood! Also a great way to receive gifts for the mommy and babies!

Wrinkles!

The first sign of aging that his me is the fine lines around the eyes. Well I suppose that it is common as the skin around the eye areas are the most vulnerable and fragile. Thus I am looking for the best eye serum that can help me in fighting the time and fine lines. With so many brands in the market, how do we find one that is really effective?

At the eyeserum website, I can easily find out the user ratings and reviews! There are also plenty of useful information about eye creams, eyes bags, eyes lifting and etc. I am thinking to try out the best eye serum which is on top of the list, the Elite Serum.

Old Friend

Heard a sad news from my old friend; that he got divorced with his wife. Actually I am sort of guessing that as from his last few family pictures in Facebook, I couldn’t spot her. I wondered what happened but he said it was long story and they however parted in good terms. He didn’t seem what to tell me more about it.

Anyway, his life has a good turning point now that he is starting a new business venture with a friend. He is always business minded, selling stuff online all these while. As he is into music, as I remembered the first Rolikeyboard he bought when we were housemate, he decided to grow into this area.

I wish him all the best, knowing that he would someday be successful. And hopefully find a wife that will grow old with him!

First Valentine’s

A friend of mine has just started dating for the first time. He has been single for the first 34 years of his life, never finding the right girl; although we all think that he might have too high expectation on finding the right girlfriends.

So this Valentine’s day will be the first one he ever celebrates and he wants to make it special! His girlfriend is someone who loves and plays instrument well and he is planning to get a beautiful bracelet.


And after much advise from us, a romantic candlelight dinner at the new restaurant down town. I can see it in his eager eyes how much he anticipates the day and pray that everything will go on smoothly. Good luck!

Snacking!

To help me to distress at work, I tend to munch snacks. It helps to make me relax and unwind as I chew away. But apparently it has not been helping with my growing waistlines!


What’s more, sitting at the cubicle for 8 to 10 hours every day doesn’t help to burn the extra calories that I have accumulated through the snacking.


I guess the only easy way out is by using the effective pill.That’s it until I have time to hit the gym and work out during the weekend or holidays.
