Reverie @ Work

September 29th, 2009 Comments(7)

I've probably flown more miles just coming to Batesville, Indiana (Singapore -> Frankfurt -> Chicago -> Cincinnati) than I've ever flown before in my entire life. The flying was awfully boring. I just slept all the way. The layover at Frankfurt was 5 freaking hours at like 5AM in the morning. Talk about misery. And the flight from Frankfurt was full of vacationeers with kiddos who would not stop screaming.

Clearing the US customs was horrid. Seriously, who died and gave them permission to be so mean and snooty? I'm here on business. I'm not a criminal. And for grapefruit's sake, DO NOT comment on my choice of underwear!

And oh, United Airlines misplaced my luggage in a mere 2-hour flight. How freaking amazing is that? I was up every hour last night, harrassing their call centre in Philippines. I only got my luggage at 5am today. I was half afraid I would have to turn up for work in jeans and sneakers.

My first day of work was awesome. So I got really, really sleepy when it was approaching 2PM, but it wasn't too bad. The people here are absolutely wonderful and it was lots of fun. Though I should probably lay off the beer till the weekend. I hope I don't have too much trouble getting up tomorrow.

My totally awesome bed for the week. Big, soft and fluffy with loads of pillows. All mine!

The area in front of the mirror, with all my makeup and stuff.

The TV kept switching on by itself. Absolutely annoying.

Yay! 3-panel mirror!

Bathtub. Should try a bubble bath some time. My nose runs faster than the shower.

Reading area (so I call it, even though there's no time to read) with my luggage resting safe and sound beside it. I missed it so much, seeing as I had to sleep in my jeans last night.

Some Life Updates

September 08th, 2009 Comments(0)

So little has happened since I graduated and I can feel my brain turn to mush. I gave gaming a rest and am mainly using my DS Lite as an e-book reader until Scribblenauts gets released. My beloved DS functions awesome as an e-book reader! I can carry a ton of books around now without looking like a walking library!

My brother got his foot badly smashed up from falling into a ditch (or so he claims). He just had surgery and I can't go anywhere and leave him alone because he's temporarily crippled.

I got a Samsung Jet for my birthday. The phone is well-made (except for the software) and the screen is just so gorgeous. But I'm already bored of it because I can't even install any programmes on it. I want the Samsung Galaxy, dammit! Jacob says I have G.A.S. But I really think android phones are the way to go seeing as Google is slated for world domination extensive reach.

I've been watching House, M.D. right from season 1 and it's so addictive, I'm watching it everywhere I go on my Samsung Jet.

My laptop has been with Acer for weeks and when I went to collect it today, the screen was jaundiced! They tried to push all responsibility away saying it's simply wear and tear but I would have none of it. So it's still in the service centre and I really miss it.

I start work on the 28th this month in Batesville, Indiana. I will really miss my holidays! (I'll only be there for 2 weeks. Nobody will even notice I'm gone.)

Been spending time trying to find a temporary job for the school vacation till August and haven't been successful. :( Some dumbass companies seriously think that people with 1-2 years of experience in related fields will just magically appear and volunteer to temp for them for 3-6 months. For cheap.

I give up. My agent wakes me up with phone calls daily (it's the fuqn hols, can't a girl get some beauty sleep?) and I'm leaving my job search in his hands.

The Christmas Celebration

December 24th, 2005 Comments(0)

I was invited to the ex-company's Christmas party yesterday and it was great fun. :D We took loads of photos though I looked as white as a piece of paper in most of them because flash was used. (Gawd, I hate flash.)

And I won the 2nd prize in their lucky draw, which is a Creative MuVo V200. I didn't exactly want or need an MP3 player. But now that I have one, I'm certainly not complaining! Am I ever lucky!

Asia Fashion Week 2005

November 09th, 2005 Comments(5)

Guess who attended the Asia Fashion Week event before it was open to the public? I got to see loads of lithe female models and hunky male models. Mmm... And free of charge too. Apparently other than trade visitors and professionals, everyone has to pay $10.

Tough luck, because if they're charging, it's going to be pretty devoid of people.

My boss scrutinises me too much. She even notices that I've cut my hair, for grapefruit's sake! Hardly anyone noticed. They tend to tell me I'm wasting my money getting haircuts.


New Products

The products from Hong Kong arrived today and some of them are gorgeous. And inexpensive.

Now if someone will teach me how to get good photos of jewelry that simply sparkle too much, I will post visuals.

Major Retail Therapy

@ Work: The webhosting dude pissed me off royally today. He refused to let me have access to the control panel (I am beginning to suspect that he doesn't have one), and he doesn't let me create my own MySQL databases. I'm sick of calling him for every little glitch in my set up. I can't even chmod my files, for fuck's sake! He charges S$180 a year too. Space is pathetic. Service is pathetic. To me, he's just a big ol' fraud.

Thankfully, we have fab hosts like Lauren who answers support tickets within minutes! That dude doesn't answer his e-mails! What's more: He takes forever to set up an account, which proves that either his system is fucked up, or his mind is.


Went shopping to release some steam and ended up spending a grand total of $92.90. Here's a breakdown:

3 pairs of earrings: $12
2 empire waistline tops: $10 and $5
2 skirts: $10 and $5
Beige Pants: $19.90
Jeans: $15
Cardigan: $16

Not bad, I must say. Thank goodness for sales. :D

OMG. It's attachment tomorrow. *Hyperventilates* OMG OMG OMG. I think I'm going to screw up or something.

Hard of Hearing?

March 24th, 2005 Comments(5)

Either everyone has the habit of talking really softly in the office, or I'm hard of hearing. I kept giving them blank looks which convinced them that I have a complete inability to understand Mandarin. So they talk to me in English, which doesn't aid my comprehension any because I can't hear anything!
