A Morning Request

"My marketing plan is due tomorrow!" I panicked. Interestingly enough, I haven't done much except for a few tables and few pages. OMG it's tomorrow and to write a marketing plan in one day is definitely MI:4 after the Tom Cruise's MI:3. Thus, I knocked on my CEO's door and told him that I would like to make a request.

"I would like to extend the dateline till this Friday"

With a serious look on his face, he said "ok"

I thanked him and went to inform his EA, whom is also my buddy that I could hand in the plan later on Friday.

With a puzzled look, she said "but the dateline is 10th Nov"

"Is it?!!!" I realised then that I did not read the memo properly. I thought it was tomorrow! It was actually due in 10 more days and what was I thinking when I ask for this Friday's dateline?!! Realising how stupid I was, I knocked on his door again.

"Another request again?" He asked

"Hehe...Boss, I would like to request to cancel the previous request. The dateline is actually 10th Nov"

He smiled and I closed his door. His EA was laughing, my cubicle neighbour was also laughing. That was one of the stupid things that I've done in my office. Haha...what a morning. Knowing that I still have 10 more days has reaffirmed my status as a last minute queen. I'm occasionally a procastinator but I will definitely have a plan by dateline.

The moral of the story for the above is to always ask the boss's assistant before knocking on his door if you don't want to be embarrassed!

Guess what? Today is 31st! Today is ICE CREAM day.. Baskin Robbins 31% discount on all handpacked ice cream. I had a quart of Rum&Raisin and another quart of Jamoca Almond Fudge mixed with World Class Chocolate. I would really recommend Green Tea and Love Potion. These 2 are definitely the best flavours at BR but sadly they discontinued these 2 flavours. Can't find them at most BR outlets. Really missed 'em. Can't wait to stuff those ice cream into my mouth tonight after CF (Celebrity Fitness). Yummy Yummy....

Currently Feeling: Hungry for Ice Cream

Lunch Time

Did you know that you can accomplish quite a number of tasks during lunch time? You could if you manage your time well and make full use of the 1 hour.
My company is a bit different. If I count every minute correctly, I should have about 80 minutes of lunch time. There is always a buffer time of 10 minutes before and 10 minutes after lunch. Huh? The 10 mins before lunch existed because people went to lunch before it's even lunch time and the 10 mins after lunch is for them to pack up and slowly trudged to their own cubicles. The funny thing is there are two clocks in the office and the one that we used to clock in is 5-10 mins slower than the clock at the receptionist. When they went out for lunch, it's following the timing of the receptionist's clock and when they are late, then they are following the clock-in-clock. Haha...
I can usually accomplish at least 3 tasks during lunch time if I'm not going out to a far place for lunch. If I would just walk over to have lunch at the canteen just opposite my office, I would have time to MSN chat and then take a nap. Today, I sacrificed my nap and blog instead. So..the conclusion is lunch time can be quite long if I have a quick lunch and lunch time can be quite short if I am enjoying myself elsewhere. Okay I think I've crapped enough about my lunch time today. Moreover my buffer period has exceeded 10 mins. Back to work.... : (

This few days, all I could think of is allaboutchocolate.

My marketing plan for 2007 is due in 5 days and look what I've been doing - blogging. Honestly I'm very tired and to write so much in so little time seemed almost impossible. However, I'm still doing my best by drafting my A&P table where I will allocate RM700k for below the line and trade promotion activities for the next 12 months. To have an above the line activity ie. TVC would almost be impossible with my budget thus I have to make full use of what I have. Even the Chinese New Year have not started, I already have to plan for the coming Hari Raya, Christmas and CNY promotions. Life is hard but to plan and forecast what will be happening in the next 12 months is even harder.

Working when everyone else is on holiday can be such a bummer. I've used up all my leave for my 1 month Europe trip in May and now I have to suffer. Was working on Monday too where only 3 people is in the office. It's quite fun because I was just wasting time in the office and no one knows about it. The downside to it was me having to open up the office and lock it up after work. There were almost hundreds or locks to be opened... ok, I was just exaggerating, it's about 8 locks to be opened and locked. Would never want to hold the keys to the office again.

I shall end this with a quote of the day:

"Don't work if you don't feel like working. Just act busy and end the day".

Currently feeling : Busy but doing nothing

Is that my car?!!

Is that my car, or is it a car?
This is what happens if your car is found to be stolen. Even if you can ever find your car, it would not be a car anymore. How could it be a car if it has no engine, no meter, no tyres and no lights?

My car had chosen to end its life in a state that I've ever imagined. My sis has been using this car all along when my parents upgraded me to another car last year. My 1st car which I got for my 18th birthday died a terrible death. One fine day, she parked her car at USJ6 in the morning before going to work and when she returned in the evening, the dear car has vanished. At first she thought the car has been towed so she went to the MPSJ and it wasn't there. After a few rounds of searching, it dawned upon her that the car had been stolen and I lodged a police report. Well, I thought if the car is stolen, so be it. May no one will find it because I know the outcome would be worse that what I have expected. True enough, the police found it a week later. My car has been found and err... it wasn't quite a car, it was just an empty shell with some seats and a steering wheel.

I was in complete shock.. I was appalled to see my dear car ripped apart, and even my original CDs, new car fragrance and Ikea containers were not spared. Those buggers even toke my 4 new Yokohama tyres!

What I was about to show you can be devastating and disturbing. Please do not continue if you have a weak heart.




Since I don't usually swear profanities in my everyday life nor in the blog but I shall break the rule once -


Still can't believe that it happened to my car.........
Well, the most I can do is to hope that the my insurance agency will write it off and give me my money!

Currently Feeling : Not any better

Armour peut-etre?

So are you game? With the recent hype of Cornetto Love Perhaps Reality Show going on, I finally have the pleasure of meeting at least 10 of the 15 bachelors yesterday at Asia Cafe @ Subang Jaya. It was 8 and after my work out session at CF, I dropped by to see my friend Allan who had invited me to join him earlier. There I was - ruffled-blown hair, baby-T, denim skirt and flip-flop as opposed to neatly tied/combed hair, perfectly-done-make-up and nice clothes and even the guys were all dressed up. It's okay, I'm not the star of the day. The bachelors, Joy and Shree was there to watch the show which is broadcasted on ntv7 every Thursday @ 8.30pm.
For more details - www.cornettoloveperhaps.com
Guys, don't say I didn't promote you! This is free publicity man...

At first glance, nothing spectacular, just some unfamilliar faces and some akward hie's. However, they're like a big family. Sometimes i wonder what they said about each other in the show was true? How could they throw nasty comments at each other and at the table, everyone is so friendly?!! It was a game after all right? So there's no reason to be your trueself so I guess whatever I'm watching on TeeVee, it's just an entertainment. "All the world's a stage, all men and women are merely players".

Honestly, those guys looked much better in person and those girls are hot! Once the show started, they were all glued to the gigantic TV projector screen and laughing at each other's silly antics on the show. It was Teoh's birthday yesterday and we were all singing the usual Birthday song and I felt totally out of place because I find myself singing this song to a total stranger. It was so nice of him to invite me to his Bday party tomorrow considering me being a total stranger. He's a nice guy, I'm not saying that because he bought me beer...oops..Well, there's always a first for everything. What was rather perculiar that nite was when everyone at the table was well-dressed up and is making so much noise about the show, no one (the other patrons) there seems to know what's going on!

Sadly, I didn't have enough time to mingle around to dig some bad stuffs outta 'em since I've got to rush for a residents' meeting. Haha I'm just kidding guys. I left before the show has finished and I missed the best part of the show - elimination! All the best to you guys!

Currently Feeling : Back ache, lack of quality sleep
Song of the moment : Wait, I'm in the office, there ain't no song!

CopyCat Me

I should give credit to UnkleBus for the following banners as I've stole it from his blog and I did some editing to suit my mood at that moment. To view his full collection - http://unklebus.blogspot.com/2006/09/my-banner-page.html

I was very angry with some of the marketing managers in my company one day and to vent my anger, I did this! Well, it was quite a quick job where I did some modification to the original banner where the lady in the pic is actually a guy. Well, might as well let you know that the marketing managers that I'm talking about are ladies...
t-rex : yum yum...

There's no particular meaning to this banner. I just like it. It's fcool (fcking + cool) man....

Missing you...

Suddenly, I've just realised that my BLOG is really EMPTY! 24 hours a day is really not enough. Think about it, my first piece of blog was in 2004 and now its August 2006 in a flash. What am I doing for the past 2 years? I wonder where did it go?
Sorry guys....

When we start working, we tend to neglect lots of things. Well, I'm not sure bout others but as for me, I neglected some of my close friends. There's just no time to meet up with them or even to just give them a tinkle. Come to think of it I do enjoy my life in college. It was the best time of my life I presume. Lots of good and bad but in the end, I still have lots to gain from it. As we go by, we realised that life is not always a bed of lilies...oops i mean roses (I just love White LILIES). As much as I would like to hang out with you every weekend, I just couldn't find enough time to do it. Come to think of it, we used to see each other everyday and yet we couldn't have enough of each other. Now, we are seeing each other less than once a month! What a life?!! I would like to take this chance to tell you that I appreciate you guys very much. I miss you lots too! You've been there when I needed someone. I would definitely be there for you too if you need me. You can take my word for it. After all eL does keep her promises. Sounds too mushy? Don't cry, just give me a kiss! hehe...

Song Of The Moment : My Hips Don't Lie (Shakira)
Currently Feeling : Satisfied?

Please Save Me From Boredom!

Dunno why I was feeling extremely lethargic today. It is as if my strength has been drained last weekend. Thus I was tempted to search some interesting websites today and I found this pretty interesting site where you can answer some questions and see who you really are. And poof...

You are 93% Aquarius
How Aquarius Are You?

True to the word, I'm a pretty original aquarian except for the other 7% which I still dunno why I didn't have the perfect score.

Your Scent is Strawberry

Fun, flirty, and fresh.
You're a complete sweetheart that makes everyone smile!

I've never liked Strawberries except during some occasions where I really craved for them. Oh I remembered! It was when I was walking down the Portobello Market in London. Those strawberries really excite my tastebuds! Am I flirty? I don't know, you'll be the judge.

Your Seduction Style: Prized Object

The seduction game you play is tried, true, and still effective: hard to get.
You know that the best seducers turn the tables - and get their crush to seduce them.
The one running has the power, and you're a challenge that is worth the chase.

You are a master of enticing and pulling back. Giving a little and taking some away.
You are controlled enough to know rewards come after a long seduction dance.
Even though you want to call, email, or say "I love you" first - you don't!

You're style is the perfect mix of hot and cold - so much so that you have many suitors.
Think Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's ... or any of those creepy guys from the Bachelor.
You're skilled at inspiring a chase. The real test is picking the person to slow down for.
What Kind of Seducer Are You?

Haha...Well, I have to say 90% is true. As for the other 10%, I would like to put it this way; If you like a person, go ahead, if you plan to wait for the other person to make a move, you can wait all you want and in the end you might just miss the boat.
I believe in FATE but I'm not desperate!
"What is Time when you know that Love is Forever" -eL-

Your Personality Is Like Alcohol

You're the life of the party, a total flirt, and probably a pretty big jokester.
Sometimes your behavior gets you in trouble, but you still remain socially acceptable.
You're a pretty bad driver, and you're dancing could also use a little work!

Haha...This one really got me ROTFL. I'm not a bad driver. Am I??? For those who have tried my driving skills should have known that I'm not a bad driver, just bad in parking. And I don't think I need to work on my dancing. I'm already experienced! *wink*

Men See You As Playful

Men want a challenge and you are the perfect playmate
You know how to push men's buttons and attract a wide range of guys
You enjoy living and loving - it's one of your most attractive qualities
Men are often consumed with desire for you, and you love that!

You Are Bad Girl Sexy

Girl, you are nothing but trouble. And that's hot.
You've got the classic bad girl sexiness mojo going on.
And your badass attitude makes men fear you - and crave you.
Don't give into people who say to tone it down. You're perfect as is.
What Kind of Sexy Are You?

No Comment for being playful and sexy...Hey don't blame me, It's my nature..
