I have a lot to include in this post, so I will just cover the more interesting things that happened over the past week.
My uncle’s (not related to me by blood) sister passed away about a week before CNY. Lung cancer, and she was only 40 ish, plus she doesnt smoke and is quite a health freak. The irony of life. And because my auntie (uncle’s wife, who’s related to me by blood) is especially susperstitious and “pan tang”, they’re not coming over for CNY reunion at my place tml night. There’s gonna be like 80+ people scuttling about my house tml, and A LOT of damn good food, okay tml is the best time to take pictures, I hope I remember.. REMIND ME! And btw Daddy ordered like an entire salmon fish, fresh from my fishmonger uncle, and we are gonna have SASHIMI! OMG, epitome of awesomeness (: BEAMS
Anyway, I’m gonna be damn obese. Speaking of which, I gained 1.5kg! and I then I lost 0.5kg, and omg now I’m so gonnna gain even more kilos, seriously I DIE. I have a morbid fear of being fat, no kidding ): I used to look like this:
And now, I look
Okay because this is a very depressing topic, I’m gonna move on and talk about my work experience. So, my apple promotion job officially came to an end on Sunday. It was a great experience because now I know how hard the ntuc staff are working everyday, and I’m more forgiving when some (I say some, I didn’t say all; and I’m not referring to any particular department, although I think the fruits/veg department totally rocks!😀 In fact, just today, DoReMi even helped me choose a packet of lady’s fingers voluntarily cause I told her I dont know how and I’ll make do with any packet. Haha, but she said cannot, must choose the good one, so she chose for me <3) seem grouchy/ unhelpful sometimes when you ask for their assistance. But seriously, they work damn ass hard okay, I see them working nonstop from 7am-10pm during the CNY peak period!
Anw, while I was working at Nex, I made friends with a couple of 17 year olds, who were either cashiering or promoting drinks.. One of them just professed his love for me. After I told him he’s still a young boy and I’m too old, he said age is just a number that doesnt mean ath lol. And then he said I’m cute, hahaha. Seriously, I don’t think I’m cute at all! It feels damn weird when people tell me I’m cute! It feels as though I’m a soft toy o something lol. Another 19 year old asked his friend to ask me for my number and asked if I’m single. But that dude was too shy to even say hi to me lol. Anyhow, this is not a very good sign, I’m attracting young boys! For those of you who are adamant that I attract young boys because I’m childish, you must be beaming now lol. Good for you, I’m glad I brought a smile to your face (: But seriously, growing up too fast sucks too, no?
YES! IT SUCKS!
but yeah, I will try to grow up and act my age too la ok. chill.
And the second part-time job I tried out was waitressing at Carlton Hotel, Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant. Seriously, it’s damn tough to be a waitress. The dishes are SO DAMN heavy, both days, 4 hours each, I already had neck and shoulder aches; the next couple of days, my biceps were aching too. I can’t imagine working both shifts, 11am-3pm and 6-11pm, but for the CNY period, the rates are either $15.50 or $11 per hour, which is freaking awesome. Lunch/Dinner are provided for the respective shifts: 10-11am/ 5-6pm. But really requires alot of ahoulder and arm strength, of which I obviously lack -.- My next shift is on 4 feb, 6-11pm. I think I will wake up like after 12noon the following day LOL. I’m quite certain, I can already foresee.. haha
So on Monday and Tuesday, I met Fysh in the afternoon. He taught me a little of stats on Mon, and Tue I didn’t wana study anymore so we caught a movie at Nex, Okay, here’s the part you don’t wanna miss. Evidence of how evil Fysh is. He bought the movie tickets cause he was early, and I wasn’t sure which show he picked, he only told me its at 315pm.. Anyhow, we went into the cinema, and the Shaolin came on,
me “This show looks nice, I wana watch it, I like Chinese Battle films!’
fysh “Yeah, we’re watching this what, it’s started already..”
me “Huh really? I thought it was a trailer! *Laughs at myself* Omg awesome, I like this genre of movies! *excitedly*”
fysh “No lah, this IS the movie, we’re watching this movie, you didn’t know meh?”
me “No, I really thought it was a trailer! *embarrassed*”
And I proceeded to watch the “movie” attentively. In about 2 minutes, the “movie” ended and the next trailer followed! OMG IT WAS ONLY A SHAOLIN TRAILER! NOT THE MOVIE.
FYSH YOU SUCK.
I swear I felt so stupid! It was the most bimbotic moment in my life. Usually, only my girlfriends are bimbo, and I get to laugh at them, but this time, Fysh really got me. Okay this wasn’t the first time, but it was the WORST! Terrible ):
me “Eh so how much I owe you you ah, $17 right?” *hands Fysh $17*
fysh “17? 17 meh? why 17?”
me “10 for the battery and 7 for the movie, no?”
(obviously Fysh forgot he lied to me the previous night that the calculator battery he bought on my behalf was $10 instead of $2.50) -.- if he didn’t forget, it only means he was pretending to be ignorant lol..
fysh “heh, no la, you owe me 10 dollars only. the battery is only 2.50.. heh”
me “WALAO, seriously, you bluffed me again? -.- OMG. Im not gonna believe you anymore!”
1. Either Men are liars, or Fysh is a liar
2. Either Men are superb liars, or Fysh is a seasoned liar
3. Be wary of Men, Especially Fysh!
HAHAHAHA. SEE, this is what your lies have got you into!
Anyway, tuesday night, or rather in the wee hours of CNY eve, at 130am, while I was lying in bed, trying to catch my beauty sleep, whenever I closed my eyes, all I could see or think of was Ah Gong. He passed away in August 2009, but while I was thinking of him, I thought he passed away in 2010, which means this will be the first CNY without him (although this is the 2nd CNY since he passed away). Anw, within 10 minutes, I started sobbing, and soon, I was crying hysterically (thank God I have a room to myself). I was crying pretty loudly I think, and I was slightly worried I will wake Mommy/Debby up (since they were sleeping on the same floor, and just across the hallway). But luckily I didnt, cause when I checked my watch it was already 230am, which means I’ve been crying for an hour lol (I almost thought I was mad). Anw, I was just freaking emotional and sad, I kept thinking of the usual seat he would sit in at the living room, how he would always switch on the radio quite loudly even though we were watching tv lol, and we would secretly pout but not do ath about it haha! And how I will always give him hello and goodbye hugs whenever I saw him and Ah Ma, anywhere, be it at their place, at my place, or when we’re having dinner at some public place haha (it’s still my tradition with Ah Ma now “) I couldn’t stop crying, I tried a couple of times to calm down and go to sleep, but after stoppping for a min or two, I will burst into tears again.. I even had to open my cupboard to get a face towel cause I was using too much tissue paper lol..
Anw, I finally stopped after a good one hour and went to bed. And I think I’m gonna stop right here, because I’m tired and feeling slightly emotional again. Let’s not take any chances haha, I’m too tired to cry now lol. Alright Happy CNY all of you! (: I’m visiting J on Friday, for lunch!
