WGC dah kena jual. It's now in a used car dealer lot somewhere in Ipoh, last I heard.

Bye-bye, dear WGC (never got around to name it like some people do, it's always just 'WGC'). With that Sukom '98 bumper sticker that made it instantly recognizable to my friends. Am gonna miss ya. Much memories with that one - so many places, people, events, experiences et al. The good times. The learning. The many dents and scratches (ye la, first car + novice driver, whaddya expect?). The many, ahem, dates too of course LOL. First excursions to Formula 1, theatres, movies, holidays, outstation stints.

Well, there'll be opportunities for more memories later with the next one too, I'm sure.

Anyway for this week, me no car. Me crashing at Sal's place. Me wait.

2. Ring!

One of the nicest feeling to have is the surprise, when you've been thinking of someone for some time, then to find the phone ringing with his name right there on the caller ID. Oh, woe be me, for he's off limits (or more that I'm making it to be so - people do say all's fair in love and war, right?)! But it's still nice just to know you're being thought of too. Really, really nice. Really. *smirk*

3. Grindstone

I said it once and I've said it a hundred times - I truly am in love with my WORK.
Despite the fact that sometimes (okay. MANY times) I felt like bursting at the seams, I still love it because no matter what, I know everyday that something I did - it made a difference - to other people's lives. I revel in it.

And that is the biggest and utmost reward of all.

i'm on a diet / Jimvertisement

Biah didn't order anything save for an ice kacang during lunch yesterday.

Me (to Biah) : What? You're not eating? But I'm the one who's supposed to be on diet!

* Jim : Eh, Mak Anjang, Mak Anjang on diet ke?

Me : Ye la.. kalau gemuk nanti Pak Anjang cari lain pulak...

* muntah hijau*



* Jim - our 'newfound' buddy who suddenly seems to pop up everywhere and fits automatically into our schedules (and us into his) in the couple of weeks after the rendezvous in Genting. Previously known as a more senior colleague who strikes fear and panic whenever he calls due to the nature of his position. Calls me 'Mak Anjang' and Biah 'Mak Aji' as backlash for us calling him Pak Anjang to imply that he's old. Ok, maybe not THAT old, but old-er la. We always try to rub the fact in and he'd always pretend to not heard anything. Has carloads of nieces and nephews who must think he's the best uncle in the world for always giving in to their whims and fancies (just bought a 3-yr-old niece a Gameboy in pink, and always give away free concert & cinema preview tickets he got from work to the bigger ones).

Ok, suddenly this sounds like a Jimvertisement already.

So, any takers? Heheh.

(Mandom gila)

It's 7.15pm and everybody else in this wing has left. Am preparing what's needed for tomorrow's trip to the East Coast. My two best buds whom usually by this time would still be here aren't around and it's so quiet out there.

Today's been a constant flurry of phonecalls, emails and SMSes with various people as well as detailed instructions to the new clerk for project claims procedures, who by the way is quite efficient and takes directions rather well so far. Thank God for that.

Work, work, work. And work. And work. Lapan lagi. dua.. tiga.. empat....

Need something to pick me up - thinking back that today I've spent the hours worth the company's RM and my while, solved a couple of issues. Ok-lah.

Sikit hari lagi kalau loan application settle dapat la gua angkat itu kereta baru yiha.

(Tak mandom dah)

Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang. Here I come!
