Saturday, December 31, 2005Got my retainer this morning. . . And seriously speaking. . . i wouldn't have wanted to wear it at all. . . It's super uncomfortable to wear, until now. . . 16 hours have passed and i have not yet get myself adapted to the uneasiness of it in my mouth. . . I just kept on secreting saliva and it's giving me a hard time swallowing all these gluey transparent liquid. . . especially when the retainer tends to break loose from the teeth everytime you try to do so. . . But this is not the worst. . definitely. . . For the entire day of my work today, i just mumbled my words through. . . i couldn't speak properly with this thing in my mouth. . . The words that break out from my mouth all sounded so much like though i have short tongue. . . Hence. . i didn't really speak much today. . . as compared to my usual self of course. . . Unbelievably. . this actually made me realised the importance of speech. . . All the while today, i was heavily dependent on gestures and smile to compensate my refusal to let out my voice whenever there's a need to communicate to my customers. . . then i found that these simple inadequate. . . too many occasions there were where there's a need for verbal communication with them. . and most importantly, most people expect a certain form of courtesy in the form of 'thank you' or 'you are welcome', whenever there are any verbal contact between you and customers involved. . . So. . i mean speech is really something that plays a crucial role in our life. . .
Anyway. . work is really tiring. . i am really shacked out. . i'm really glad that i have just two more working days left. . .
Friday, December 30, 2005I'm back home now. . left with just less than 4hours of sleep. . . I have not forgotten that i still have to turn up for a dental appointment at 8am later and a full day of work where i will have to depart from home at about 10.30am. . . I'm already pondering what i should do to keep me awake during work this day. . .
Few hours ago, i was out with my group of buddies. . . Sen Rong, Jia Liang and Roy on a buffet dinner at Novena. . . The style was similar to that of where i'm working. . . but it is slightly cheaper, which obviously, the stuffs there are not as nice and of greater variety than it is in Pariss. . Anyway, we went for a movie after dinner. . . The chinese tall story. . . qing tian da sheng. . . and as the movie title implies. . . it's really a tall story. . a lame and lousy film in my opinion, probably the worst that i've watched this year. . .
Another few hours before that, i was with jerry, chuan ming, pow and sally. . . Went around in junction 8. . before finally going and settling in town. . . I was really stunned and surprised. . . they actually tricked me and got me a birthday present. . ! The story goes like this. . . Sally said that she wanted to get some things for a guy friend. . So we accompanied her around to search for it. . . We ended up at Man Studio. . I was like busy giving my opinion about the shirts there, even volunteered myself to try the shirt to let them see. . . They got the shirt i tried eventually and it just somehow became my birthday present. . . I felt cheated. . . but at the same time. . . i'm really touched. . . seriously. . . i didn't know what to say back then. . . but i wanted to thank them. . . thanks for all these. . . i really appreciate them alot. . thanks guys. . .!
Wednesday, December 28, 2005Endured to my off day. . . and coincidentally. . . i was a bit sick on this day. . . It's nothing serious, but well, i just needa stay at home and let myself recuperate. . . Yet nevertheless, i found myself having lotsa things not done. . . Not much time left before enlistment. . . Schedule will be packed after my last day of work next week. . . hopefully nobody put me aeroplane. . . 3rd of jan - with classmates. . class outing. . . 4th of jan - with chuan ming, kelvin and some others. . . lunch at pariss. . . 5th of jan - gathering with cheeyong, wan teng and maybe kingsley. .
Meanwhile, i must find time to train up for the enlistment. . . I wanted to start today. . but realised i'm in no condition to do anything physical. . .
3 more work days to go only. . . look forward to my last day of work. .
Monday, December 26, 2005Dreadfully tired. . . I still have one more full day to go before my off day. . .The schedule this week is out and i'm working full days only on Monday, tuesday, friday and saturday. . . I didn't thought that i could have have 3 days off this week. . . That will affect my 1000 mark this month. . . For a moment, i actually thought my plan backfired. . . Instead of getting Smith's workday cut short for the week. . i got mine cut instead. . While i was grinning away over my succeeded revenge yesterday- after Ling See got to know about the incident and agreed to 'punish' for me by arranging him to work only night shift. . . , the schedule was edited again and again after that, and the final one came with Smith receiving a typical number of full days and me. . 3 days off. . . It's as though i was the one being punished now. . . I was somehow pissed. . . only for a second. . . My tiredness just drove me to forget everything. . . Drop the idea of vengeance, lost the energy to process any data in my brain. . . I just look forward to Wednesday. . get a good rest at home, and thursday go out to have fun with my friends. . !
Sunday, December 25, 2005Singaporeans are no pushover. . . I am no pushover. . . Don't ever dare to offend me. . . I will make you suffer a fate worse than hell. . . I wanted to prove all these come true. . .
My relationship with Moon, sharlyn has been very smooth so far. . . I see their acceptance, and i feel comfortable in getting along with them so far. . . All the rest were fine. . except. . .Smith. . . Perhaps it seem from the start that i've got along with him well. . . yet i realised, since few days ago, this situation has just took a major turn. . . He looked as though he's been possessed by some spirit or suffered some serious trauma that changed his whole mood. . . His face was always as black as charcoal, his attitude sucks to the core. . . The ways he do things. . . only one word to describe. . 'horrible'. . . Adding on to this. . he is a bloody slacker. . . While we were doing work, he is eating. . . He's always the first to knock off everyday. . . It's all an open secret, but i didn't care today. . The way he just threw the plates around after clearing the plates. . expecting people to clear the mess for him is unbearable. . . Finally, i crashed with him while asking him to put the plates back properly while clearing. . Expectedly, this animal didn't heed my advice, instead, i begun speaking some vietnamese to me, which i knew, obviously. . he is scolding me. . . with some vulgarities. . . I didn't care. . i feign ignorance, since i did not know what he was saying, and i see no point crashing with him. . . I knew he was childish. . . The second time came, and his insults went on. . . mostly in vietnamese. . . He tried times and again to provoke me. . but i took all these in. . . It's undeniable that my first intention was to wallop him. . . Yet the thoughts of the consequences discouraged me. . . The thoughts of affecting my relationship with the other vietnamese here. . . the thoughts of how big the issue can turn out if it's becomes a police case. . . the thought of creating a scene at a busy day like this. . . and finally, i came to the sense that i am falling into his trap if i was to use violence to solve it. . . Eventually, i endured all his insults, simply just smile and walk away. . I prove to him that i wasn't affected by this, i give him the impression that i thought he was just kidding with me. . . But deep in my mind, the deep hatred of me for him had grew trememdously and i swear i will get back. . .
A plan. . . i complained all his wrongdoings to Andrew. . . I knew Andrew didn't like Smith and i was sured that he will be on my side. . . He told him that Smith offended me and i suggested to him to bar him from work for some time next week. . . Of course. . Andrew did not agreed, he asked me to take it in my stride. . to treat him as such child, doing some child's act. . . nevertheless, i was satisfied enough and i knew somehow this has created a certain impact in andrew. . . My vengeance will not end with this. . i promise there will be more to come. . . I will make him understand that this is Singapore, not vietnam, here you don't mess around with Singaporeans. . . and there's not point stabbing me in front, for i will pay him back double by stabbing him back without his realisation. . .
Christmas eve it is. . yet i have to talk about all these vengeance thingys. . . A small party we had after work and i drunk a bit. . . Have to squeeze through the crowded orchard road on my way back. . . Similar from the year before, people were spraying foam on each others. . . I escaped unscathed fortunately. . . Can recall how i became a victim and a culprit last year's christmas while having fun on the streets of orchard. . . It was fun. . . but just too bad that i will be burning my christmas on work . . Another full day tomorrow. . !
Friday, December 23, 2005I admit that i am not one easy to get along. . . and i know it's a major problem. . . Trying hard to change since the day i discovered myself. . . but so far. . . either the progress is too insignificant or perhaps, there has been no progress afterall. . .
Maybe. . . i am still at the stage of finding myself. . . the real me. . .
Work is always so tiring. . . i have 10 more days to go and this weekend's christmas period will be dreadful for me. . . Full days of work consecutively. . . The restaurant almost certain to be full, it kinda tough work to come. . . There will be no pay rise on these days. . . 5 bucks an hour as usual, attributed to the reason that Andrew gave- the vietnamese are hired on contract, their salaries are fixed, and since he can't give them any pay rise. . . in order to be fair, the same shall apply to us. . . Not sure whether this is a lousy excuse, but well, i'm still gonna work anyway. . . My relationship with the vietnamese workers there returns to normal. . as in. . . i just tried my best to get along with them and they weren't that incorrigible afterall. . . I reflected and thought it was perhaps all my fault. . . I am not someone easy to get along, not a friendly looking man etc etc. . .
Anyway. . . there are some new guys joining. . . Jun wei. . . Waiting for his O level results from Zhonghua Secondary joined us this monday. . . A nice and friendly guy who looks like our ODAC zhiming. . . and well. . . there are some nepalese joining these few days too. . . And not forgetting. . . i've finally realised that the place is not totally deprived of 'fine-looking' singaporean girl too. . . Xin Yun, she's called. . . she's not really that awesome looking, perhaps only 5pointer on Kelvin-Zixiang-Zhicai's scale. . . but her presence there will make me give her at least 7 points. . . At last, a singaporean girl there of our age, someone who i can at least take a peek when i'm tired of doing all these works. . . Sadly, i guess she's not really a staff there, probably just there occasionally to promote some wine that the company is selling. . .
And ya. . i finally took out my braces. . . but i was really worried that something may just screwed up and cause the teeths return to its old self. . . i have not been issued with my retainer and i pray hard that nothing goes wrong this week before i return for my next appointments in a week's time. . . Meanwhile, can someone experience gave me some assurance that my teeths will not turn out what i've been worrying. . .?
Thursday, December 22, 2005My life can be easily described. . . Just eat, sleep and work. . . It kinda boring but to be optimistic. . it's gonna be over soon. . . As i begin counting down now, it's 11 more days to 2 Jan. . . the last day of work. . 12 more days to my 19th birthday and 16 more days to enlistment. . .
19th birthday. . it kinda significant this time. . . all because i'm entering army soon. . . gonna celebrate it beforehand with my great buddies on 29th dec. . and i wished to get the whole of my beloved 2s13 together on 3rd jan to celebrate with me. . . maybe a barbecue or something. . . of course we can celebrate zixiang's birthday along too. . . So. . i mean people. . get that day free by hook or by crook. . .
Yesterday was my day off for the week. . . As usual. . spent majority of my time sleeping at home. . . Work's tiring, and plenty of rest is eccential to charge myself up for the next battle. . a long festive weekend of full days. . . Working for the entire of christmas eve and christmas. . .
I spent the other part of my day at k box with rong. . . Guess that will be my last k box visit this year. . .
Anyway. . today's sorta my big day. . Because i'm finally gonna get my braces removed. . At last, 2years and almost 3months i have been wearing it, and perhaps this's the day i've looked forward to since the day i put it on. . .
Alright man. . . after this i will be off for the long battle at work. . . !
Saturday, December 17, 2005With the holiday season setting in. . . the days just seemed destined to get busier and busier. . . today perhaps only marks the beginning. . . Obviously. . today's the busiest day i ever encountered. . . business is good. . and is worth of celebration. . . for the boss only. . . for small fries like us. . . it just means more work, less time to rest, more stress and more tiredness. . . I was like trying out my limit every time i was clearing the plates, testing my guts and seeing how high i can stack up the plates without having them landed into pieces onto the floor eventually. . . Remarkable. . as i set new record for myself each time. . This record appears to less and less likely to be broken as my guts begun deteriorating with the growing amount of plates cleared. . .
It's tremendously tiring to cope with these busy days. . . i knew these two weeks to come will be like hell for me. . . further confirmed when Andrew let out words that he will want to utilised me to the fullest until my last day, which implies that he will try to make me work everyday, full day. . . It's either he's trying to work my to death or he just needed me, as he says. . i'm his right hand man. . . Sounds flattering but i chose to believe. . .
Anyway, tomorrow i will be working at night only. . good time for me to get some good rest and recharge this flattened battery of mine. ..
Friday, December 16, 2005Took 15 minutes out of my precious sleep time just to wake up to blog this. . The new guys at my workplace. . .
One NTU guy and one NUS girl. . . Amazing. . . Can't believe university students are taking up such jobs, is the situation outside this bad. . or it's simply more than that. . .
The NTU guy started work on monday. . . And well, my opinion of him was quite ok. . . as in. . he is like another normal person in this world, normal university student. . . Those sorta down to earth, quiet and very obedient people. . . with absolute good attitude. . . No matter what. . at least he is not that bad, at least i find it possible to get along with him. . .
The NUS girl. . . at first when i heard that a NUS girl is coming here to work, i was extremely excited, expecting to see some awesome looking babes. . . And. . . it turn out to my disappointment. . . She's no hot chick nor a babe. . . Worse, she turn me off. . .
She is weird, scary, terrifying whatsoever. . . Even the customer complain to me that she is scary. . . I thought she was just not use to the new environment initially, and i was strongly defensive towards her when smith kept bullying her. . . Later as i realise that she's just so freaky, i didn't care much. . . She's to the extent that she will eat any leftover, be it whether it's clean or not, and she will sing as she's working, staring at people's boyfriend. . . and that was what the customer 'feedback' to me. . Freaky. . . She's not a local. . . some china girl. . . i knew that after overhearing her conversation with one of her compatriot working as cleaner at the place. . She tried to hide her identity from us, but her slang betrayed her, and everyone were suspecting that she's from mainland. . . She's just such a weirdo. . .
Anyway, chuanming started work yesterday night and he will be accompanying me there for more days to come. . . Finally, i've got a companion there. . . finally. . .
Wednesday, December 14, 2005Never have i been so desperate for a break. . . never. . and finally. . . i endure through the days and i've got what i really wanted. . . a break. . . It tiring. . . these days of working has been like hell. . . everytime i got back home, i just wanted to eat and then go to bed. . . it's really a suffering. . .
I walked along the streets of orchard road on my way back to the train station. . . feeling so lonely. . . i saw couples holding hands, whispering sweet nothings to each others. . . i saw friends, in group, having fun loitering on the road. . . i just stare with envy. . . my world now is as though occupied by me. . and just me. . . I can't help feeling lonely. . .
Of course, there are some moments of fun times at work too. . . but those moment are rare and few. . . i enjoyed talking and listening craps with the people there. . . i found them fun and loving. . but only sometimes. . . other than that. . . they were just a bunch of weird people. . apart from the captains, supervisors and few others, the rest i wouldn't understand what they are talking about, nor do they understand what i was trying to say for most of the time. .
The vietnamese waiters there, i hate them some times. . . They always blame me for not doing the correct thing while they themselves never realise it was because of their inability to speak proper english and convey their instruction clearly that i had made a mistake. . . stupid people. .
Anyway, few more new staffs will be joining in this week. . . Heard a NUS girl is coming tomorrow. . too bad it's my off day. . . and while the latest arrival is a NTU guy call ethan who i have know. . . Chuan ming may be joining me this friday night, if everything go according to plan, i hope. . .
Not forgetting. . the second time a customer had called me 'xiao jie' this morning. . the previous time occurred yesterday morning. . . oh god. . do i really look like girl. . ? damn embarrassing. .
Saturday, December 10, 2005As usual. . a typical weekend. . or perhaps a lot more than that. . . it was very busy day. . . i guess i don't have to elaborate much further, my previous few postings had illustrated it all. . the fatigue of work. . .
One more day to go to end this week and i'm really praying that i can get a day off on monday. . . the whole week of working had really drained all my energy. . .
Tomorrow will be Clement's last day. . . It's sorta sad as that will mean i'm gonna be even lonier after that. . . losing a company. . . what will i be like working at this environment with no one really to call a friend. . ? I've been desperately trying to get chuan ming in to the job and boss andrew had verbally agreed to it. . . in exchange for me to work for him until 2 jan 2006. . . i gave him my words but i guess i will have to wait some more day before seeing chuan ming joining me there. . . That few days may just be passing like years for me. . .
I'm tired but i was still rather eager to attend a soccer session with the red ants guys in the morning. . . Having to work in the afternoon and night after that, it will be both mentally and physically challenging for me. . . Haiz. . i don't really know. . . maybe afterall my weariness may just drive me off from going. . .
Friday, December 09, 2005Went to work with a shacked mind this morning. . . A tired body, feeling so low. . . this could just be some of the worst days of my life. . .
Having to stand the extremely physically straining job, i was still made to feel so stunned when smith told me that ah moon actually said i was the one who complained and caused her to got a lecture from andrew yesternight. . . Pissed. . . This's definitely not the first time i had received such groundless accusation. . . I thought she must be either too brainless to think so or maybe she just feel a deep grudge with me. . yesterday night was busy. . so busy that i don't even have time to stop and take a minutes break, where the hell do i find the time and effort to complain against her. . . And please. . what do i gain in complaining against her. . ? I seriously hate this. . i'm getting maligned again and again. . .
Anyway. . . she 'clarified' with me later. . . telling me not to believe what smith had said. . Clearly. . obviously. . . she's just attempting to savage what has been done so that our relationship will not continue to deteriorate, which could mean that she will be in some serious shit, since she seen so convinced that i am in such good term with andrew that she may just die if she offend me. . . Whatever she's thinking. . i don't care anymore. . .
The people there all seen to be suffering from PMS i say. . . Sometimes they are like giving you attitude problem and sometimes they are just so nice to you. . . They are just like the auto-senser rinsing tap in the restaurant, some times it works, some times it don't. . . The only person i find myself getting along well is smith. . . He's my age and i always play and fool around with him. . but in the end, afterall he's vietnamese and he still stick with his clique of people. . .
That was why i'm trying desperately to get chuan ming to work with me. . . With clement announcing that he will quit after sunday, life may just get alot more bored. . . i will just continue to suffer the agony working there. . . haiz!
Thursday, December 08, 2005I'm still that tired. . i've been working hard. . .
The restaurant is still that busy. . . even during lunch. . .
My distance with the colleagues are still the same. . . they just neither like me nor hate me. . it stay neutral. . and i find it impossible to clique with them. . .
My happiness level is still running low. . i see no light in my mind. . It's a very very busy day at work. . . I wouldn't know that this is only wednesday, a weekday. . . not any weekend. . . but the crowd today sent the restaurant packing in a fashion i've never seen before. . . I'm working so hard to clear the plates, run all the errands that i found it hard even to catch a breath. . .
Some times i really think that the boss must be real lucky to have hire someone like me. . . Seriously, i just put in everything i have in anything i do, i never want to skive. . . just tried to do what i see that i can do. . .
i have no idea if what i did was correct. . . the right way. . the right attitude. . . all that i have did and in return. . perhaps i'm jus rewarded by few praises. . . I was brought up in an environment that taught me to just put in the best in doing what i do and don't care the returns. . but the reality always suggest otherwise. . i do fear that i became another victim of this cruel reality. . .
Haiz. . i'm so tired. . i got lotsa things that's bothering me. . but i guess they are best kept to the heart. .
Wednesday, December 07, 2005Shack. . . Was training with the j1 ODACIANs just now. . . and now. . . feeling so tired. . . Have not forgotten that i still have to work later. . . Haiz. . . guess i will resort to taking some coffee to keep myself awake. . .
The training today was manageable. . . though been some time since i've last work up, i'm still glad to find myself in acceptable shape. . .
Despite us not really bonded with the younger batch, i thought at least finally today we did some interaction with them and went for lunch at macdonald together. . . That's some good progress, i always know that the j1s are nice and outgoing people, but it's just that chances for us to really interact with them are rare. . .
Anyway. . . today is Jia Guang's last day before he get himself enlisted into tekong. . . He's suffering from some Pre Military Syndrome which causes him to speak alot of nonsense today. . . Haha. . This man has been secretly reading my blog without bothering to tag at all. . . Good luck for your NS man . .!
And before i forget. . . Caught liang shi with some girls on my way back. . . This guy, appear so decent, innocent. . . actually a chee hong kia man. . . Haha. . no offence! I mean. . . He is a lady's man. . .
Alright. . . the restaurant was rather busy and so was i. . . for a week day like yesterday. . . I seriously hope my relationship with the colleague is becoming better. . . I've been trying hard to get along with them. . . and i know ah moon didn't really like me, but i just tried to feign ignorance. . . perhaps yesterday i somehow discovered the reason why she's like, so unhappy with me. . . but i guess alot of working style in the place i still couldn't get them right or know anything about them at all, so it's like, making one mistake or another often leads to misunderstanding and this triggers unhappiness. . . i don't dare to ask for their understanding but i will try to be more careful and try not to make any mistake. . .
Tuesday, December 06, 2005That's how a day went. . . a prom night. . . and after this. . . everything just went back to its usual self. . .
For all the excitements and anxieties i had before the event. . . i somehow feel that it don't reflect the picture that was in my mind when it triggered all these emotions. . .
Much of the moments were spent on taking photographs with friends. . classmates. . . But it all came out, an utterly disappointment. . . I had tried to style my hair, dressed up and make myself looks good, but when i look at the pictures. . . damn. . i find myself really looking horrible inside. . . Perhaps i should just submit to the fact that i am either ugly or not photogenic at all. . .
Prom night. . . as it goes. . should be a day to be happy and indulge in joy, yet when everything's over, you just realise it's represent junction where people starts parting. . . It's sad to say. . . sad to know that at this point. . . friends, classmates. . . they were be diverge to different routes. . . We, the guys. . will be enlisted into national service. . . though with a common duty of serving the nation, we are enlisted on different date, different time or different platoon. . . The girls. . . will most probably find themselves occupied with work. . . . Subsequently. . . everybody will just be parting to seek on with their own life. . . . Eventually, only those very close ones will still remain in contact. . . Even so. . . it will not be as frequent as we meet and see each other everyday as when in school days. . .
From this day onwards. . . we will just be embarking on a new journey of our life. . . .
Monday, December 05, 2005It's just another monday for many on the streets. . . but for most of the srjcians j2s. . . today's a day they have been looking forward to. . . prom night. . .
Nevertheless. . . not sure whether i was still weary after yesterday's entire day of work or something. . . i couldn't feel a thing. . . not a bit of excitement, not a bit of anxiousness. . . not at all. . .
I spent $90 on a piece of shirt. . . the entire of my fortune. . . when i met kelvin for some shopping during my breaktime yesterday. . . i ended up receiving a good scolding from my parent. . . They said they can get them elsewhere at less than $30 and that i am just buying for the brand. . . Seriously i felt rather pissed. . . Though i've been an unfilial son this way but i mean. . prom is like. . once in a lifetime and i really wanted to get something that looks good and of course, branded. . . I admit that i am not sorta person who go for practicality and submit myself to the temptation of branded stuffs. . . and i feel that wearing something branded rather a cheapo good on the street makes me feel good. . . at least mentality it's like this. . .
Anyway, after the prom, i'm not sure how often will i be out having fun and enjoying myself. . . I just knew from my schedule this way that i will be working everyday starts from tue. . . and wednesday onwards it will all be full days. . . meaning my whole week will be just exhausted on work. . . Haiz. . I guess i must just try to indulge myself tonight no matter what. . .
Saturday, December 03, 2005I guess my relationship with my colleagues at work had just turned from bad to worse. . . It's the first day i've got to work with Clement and there i go hearing from him what Moon had complained about me to him. . .
Complaint no.1 - She said i bite my nails while working. . .
My answer - I have no idea when and where she saw that or all she got the idea, but i guess those who know me surely know i don't do that. . .
Complaint no.2 - She said that i purposely do things very slowly. . . indirectly implying that i am skiving. . .
My answer - I can only say that i am new there, unfamiliar with the place, it will be virtually impossible for me to work as fast and efficient as them at this time. . . And i've got a question to ask her 'is she as pro as she is now when she was like on her first week there.?' If she says that i am skiving, then she is wrong. . . I knew that i am giving in my 110% effort and i account to myself for that, i don't blame her if she don't see it. . .
I was both disappointed and disturbed when i heard all these unreasonable accusations. . . From the first day, i've thought these people, vietnamese are nice people. . . but hearing these, together with the kinda attitude they showed me during work, only made my impression of them for the worse. . . I've tolerated again and again, because they are girls, and i admit i'm a newbie there, i still need them to show me the rope, surely do not want to stain the relationship at this time. . .
The kinda of attitude they presented to me really made me think twice whether i had made the correct choice to stay there. . . Though i feel a moral obligation to continue there because the captains are nice and taught me alot. . . the colleagues there, i just wanna give up and say. . sorry, i cannot get along with them at all. . . Haiz. .
Anyway, i've just got home from the class bbq at tanah merah safra chalet. . . The place was ridiculously inaccessible. . . We set out walking out from the chalet to the nearest bus stop at 4.45 and there i am. . reaching home at 7.30am. . . I've got 7hrs to sleep before i needa return to work and faced those people again. . .
Friday, December 02, 2005It's been a great day. . . but it didn't end that great either. . my stomach's really ached when i reached home. . . it hurts so much that i couldn't even stand still. . . and this pain just carried over the night. . .
I reached home at about 4am, before i was outside with jerry, talking while making our way home after seeing Sally home. . . And the pain just came as we alighted the cab that brought her back to her residential. . .
I thought it was just some normal gastric and will be over after some time, never have i expected it to last the whole night. . . As i woke up in the morning, realising the pain is still so intense, i just cried out to my mum and told her. . .
My Dad was at home and wanted me to apply some medicated oil. . . but that's not all, he placed a few drop of the medicated oil and mixed with water and told me to me to drink it. . . I was wandering who the hell will take this. . .? Nevertheless, i just drank it, he's my father, definitely won't harm me. . . And well, it works miraculously. . . Though i still feel a bit of pain now, but compared to just now, i'm really alot better. . .
I hope the pain will be subsided before i go for work later. . . Kelvin just quited yesterday and i didn't wish to give them the same idea by telling them i can't make it today. . . So anyway, it's only for a few hours, i will just go even if the pain's still there. . .
I'm still rather oblivious of the cause of this. . . but what i heard from my dad was, i'm suffering from something like stomach flu, attributed by taking too much cold food or something. . . Damn man, i just recalled taking the cheesecake with large quantity of iced water yesterday. . . Must be that cheesecake. . . I told myself i'm not gonna have anymore cheesecake again. . !
There's a class BBQ later in the evening, and i guess i won't be attending. . . Having to work and this sicked stomach i've got, it isn't the right time to go. . .
Thursday, December 01, 2005The third consecutive day of work and finally. . . i got a break today. . . . I thought i'm getting myself gradually integrating into the new workplace and perhaps with kelvin joining me now, life there will be easier. . . at least someone's there i can communicate and talk with. . . .
Yesterday's encountered a dramatic incident. . . There was this caucasian woman, or i should say. . babe. . . she was sitting in my section and requested me for some salt. . . At first i didn't get what she wanted for she's not an english. . . i overheard her conversation with another guy and i guess she's like some russian or something. . anyway, she was pronouncing 'salt' as 'sob'. . . . i tried to tell her in english that i didn't what she meant, but it seems also that she didn't get what i was saying too. . . I watch as she desperately gestured to me the item she wanted. . . and i struggled to understand what she meant too. . . initially, i thought she mean serviette so i got her that. . . She frowned at me, appeared to have lost her patience as she gestured and increased her tone on 'sob. . . '!. . . This time with a sauce dish on her hand. . . i finally got that she wanted 'salt'. .! and i handed her the right item. . . but ever since that, i didn't really wanted to go near her, because she appeared really pissed to me. . .
There was another case on the same day where i encountered another group of caucasian. . . this time, they were english. . . I was told to serve a special cuisine from the chef to every table and as i came to their table, i was struggling to explain the dish. . . I tried to pronounce the word 'cuisine'. . . i read it as 'gui-zinc'. . . yet they didn't seem to understand as they asked me to repeat the word again and again. . . i gave up eventually and just say it's duck. . . smoked duck roost we call it. . . That's horrible. . my pronunciation really sucks and i guess i've now got a phobia in speaking to caucasians. .!
Anyway, today's my 'off' day. . gonna go out there and enjoy myself. . . Going K box with rong before joining the odac guys for dinner at cartel. . . Great day ahead!

Sometimes, what you want in life may not be what you will achieve in life. Sometimes, what you want in life will change as you came to realise of your limitations and constraints.
