I'm another year old

I'm 22!

I just loved being 21 and now it's no more :( Oh well, gotta grow up sometime right? Especially now that I'm already a working LADY :D Gotta think maturely (not that I've been childish all this while) and make mature decisions.

Had a pre-birthday dinner with Mer at TGI Fridays at OU the night before my birthday. We spent some quiet time together, since we haven't met that often for the past month (blame WORK!). He got me a handbag with a pair of pretty earrings hiding in them and they were put in a pretty pink box :D

Believe it or not, I spent about the whole of my birthday at Mine's Palace of the Golden Horses. TV3 had a function over there and we (my colleague and I) were needed there in the morning (function started at 5pm and ended at night). I dressed-to-kill that day and felt a lil bit overdressed but what the heck :D

And tonight I'll be having a family dinner somewhere around Damansara or Bangsar. Mer should be joining us there. Oh yes, gotta get ready and dress to murder...ahhaha..

Countdown to Alicia Keys's concert ---> 2 days!! (Note to self: get them tickets tomorrow)

La La Laaa...Ooooh...

Went karaokeing with some friends from work last night. Believe it or not, it was my very first time and it was so much fun! Even tried my luck in harmonizing, which turned out quite ok actually :D

Yes, I've never even done any home karaoke before either coz no one sings at home (quite conservative they are). I only sing when no one's around. So there you have it, you've just discovered my passion for singing. Whether I'm good or not, that's a different story..hehe..

Hey, wait..I HAVE done it before! How could I have forgotten! During my high school days, I used to go to Intencity (a former game arcade place in OU, the cool kids' hang out - not saying that I'm in the hip group or anything :P) . They had this karaoke booth where we get record our (horrible) singing. Went in it twice with a bunch of friends and had a blast! (Note to self: Gotta find that cassette) Those were the days..

The first one

I've just realised how tiny a newborn baby is.

Well yeah, I don't expect them to be all huge and such. I never actually put a thought into it until yesterday when I visited someone who just delivered her first child. It reminded me of the miracle of life. It was calming to see a child who is less than a day old sleeping so soundly, with not a worry in the world. And the look on the first-time parents just screams yay! all the way.

As part of my training today, I had the chance to ask someone about the happiest moment in his life. He answered, "The birth of my first child." When I asked to elaborate, he was at lost of words. He mentioned that it was indescribable and must experience it to know how it exactly feels.

As much as I love babies, I am not good at handling them, let alone entertaining kids. Don't blame me for being the youngest in the family :P I'm sure that one day my motherhood instincts will come naturally to me. In the mean time, I'll just enjoy any pampering given by people around me :D

Dejavu

I went to this theater called Dejavu at Istana Budaya last Monday. It was a nice one and quite lenghty too, 2 hours 45 mins excluding the 15 mins interval. Ogy Ahmad Daud played the lead and she was brilliant! Go watch it ;)

My days of waking up at 5 am are over, for now. I'm no longer attached to the program coz I finally started the BJ training yesterday. So now I go to work and back at the same time as everybody else. I kinna miss hanging around with the crew though coz they are such good company. There are only 2 of us going through training now, so it's kinna dull..

Whatever it is, I'm still having fun at work. Are you? :D

Tuesday night fever

Remember the strange feeling I had earlier and I thought I was back to normal? Apparently I was wrong. My temperature was quite high last night so I quickly took some medicine before retiring to bed at 9pm. This morning I was totally back to normal, with the appetite and all :D

It's amazing what sleep deprivation can do to one's body.

As for now, I shall celebrate my totally-back-to-normal state of being by enjoying some relaxing R&B music.

Lately..

As what Stevie Wonder and Jodeci sang..

Lately, I had the strangest feeling, With no vivid reason here to find..

I've been a bit off for the past few days, like my mind was playing tricks on me or something like that. I didn't have the appetite to eat nor did I feel like talking much. To make matters worse, I didn't get a good night's sleep.

Suprisingly, I feel a lot better now after I got back from work and had a nice warm shower. Things are back to normal! Yay! Maybe that's why my last post was a lil bit on the serious side.

Ah well, I'll celebrate my back-to-normal state by a round of piano playing..

Long time no see

I have been neglecting my blog for quite some time now, haven't I? I haven't even been spending time with my family that much either. When I get back, I'm already getting ready for bed. My new bedtime: 10 pm. My new wake up time: 5 am. What's to blame? WORK!

Don't get me wrong. Even with long and odd working hours, I'm actually liking it. I've had the chance to meet many amazing people for the past week. My week is'nt over yet since I still have to go to work tomorrow (today rather), although it's an off day, and get some other things settled as well.

I know many people doubt my abilities with this job. I don't know how to explain it but I just know. Well, the more reason to prove people wrong. Thus, the harder I shall work. I was told that people will change once they get into this line of work (or any line of work right?). I hope I will change for the better with no negative impact to my life.

Woah, suddenly I realise that what I wrote above is somewhat different that my previous posts. Am I turning into a serious person? Or is it the sleepiness sinking in?

Don't know why I feel like blogging at this hour. It's waaay past my bedtime right now. I have to wake up in a few hours time. My eyes are heavy and I think circles are starting to form under them.

Goodnight then..zzzzz..

I want them VIP seats pls :D

We are family

Spent my day at Sunway Lagoon for TV3's family day. Mer couldn't come along with me coz the entry was only for 1 person (if you're not married). It would've been more fun if he was around. But it was fun playing around in the wave pool, going down the really wicked and twisted water slide and meeting Ruffedge (and Zahid and Farah of AF2).

I'm the kind of person who doesn't like being under the sun that much. Sometimes I feel like a vampire..hehe! But today I forced myself to enjoy the time under the sun and I have a feeling I am a weeee bit darker now at the hands and legs. Not sure about my face though..thank God for sunblocks :D

Oh yeah, I won 2 nights stay at Damai Laut thanx to the lucky draw..woohoo! There were more interesting prizes like handphones, electrical appliances and holidays overseas. Being around for less than a week, I feel so lucky to have actually won something ;)

Celebrating my Mer

I got back from work early yesterday. Mer came over around 5 and we went out for a late lunch/an early dinner at this nice cosy restaurant and had icecream for dessert *slurp* Oh yes, I got him a pair of Nike sandals and a jar full of chocolate chip cookies that I made myself :D I brought part of the remaining cookies to office today just to give those people a taste.

Yess..survived my 1st half week of work :D It's quite OK so far. I get to meet many people including some VIPs and learn a lot at the same time. Tomorrow's suppose to be a day off for me but I'll be out observing an experienced Broadcast Journalist(BJ) at work. Should be fun ;)

And what luck..I started at just about the right time coz this weekend is TV3's family day! I get to socialize with many other TV3 staffs, which is essential for my job. Not forgetting the guest artist, Ruffedge. Oh yeah, there's also Zahid and Farah from AF2..not that I'm a big fan :P

Notice I've been talking too much about work? I guess that's what happens when work starts taking over your life. Let's move away from the subject for a while..I'm so in love with Usher and Alicia Key's "My Boo"! It's a definite future big hit. Listen to it! I've been listening to it over and over and over..it's soooo nice! I like :D

Mer, you will always be my boo..hehe..

First day! First day!

Yay! First day of work!

Nothing much really. Haven't even got my own desk yet. I've been walking around the whole building to meet as many people as I can and introduce myself. Had to get to know how they go about their work and all..must be a bit of a busy body..hehe! They're like basic first day activities I suppose.

Tomorrow's another day and this time I'm starting very early in the morning. Very early as in 6 a.m. early. I feel sleepy just thinking about it *yawn* But the good thing is, I might get to go home at 3 if nothing else comes up :D

Oh yes, I may have to cut down on my posts now that I have a job. Hey, that sounds nice. I have a job! :D
