+ 4kgs

I weight myself the other day to realize I've gained a whooping 4kgs!?!?!? And the 4 lovely kgs go to the below scrumptious food at my regular spots over the pass few months:-

Yut Kee Restaurant, Dang Wangi
 Pork chop (My all time fav)

Lea & Perrins. They have a bottle of this on each of their tables.

Roast Pork

Steam bread. Their home-made kaya is good. (WY's all time fav)

Antipodean, Bangsar
 Porridge, honey & banana (His all time fav)

 Muesli with honey, yogurt & fruits salad (My all time fav)

Pumpkin & sweet corn fritter with bacon

Marutama Ramen, Fahrenheit 88
 Love the soup & chasiu. WY claimed the soup is a bit too thick. But I simply love it. 

A bit pricey for a bowl of ramen, as commented by AOH, but I think t's all worth it.

Wong Soon Kee Restaurant, Subang Jaya
The fried chicken, BEST !!!

Departure Lounge, Uptown Damansara
I love the cappuccino there, not simply because of the cute teddy bear milk-foam lar... They won some barista award though. And their DIY breakfast selection is quite creative. 

That's about it. If you haven't tasted any of the above, go ahead and give it a try. Let's get fat together-gether :)

First day of school

I'm not going to write a long story (like I usually do) of me being a newbie today. I don't want to have a vivid recollection of my importunate demands of my ideal working environment on the very first day of work. But then, a subtle recollection of conversations with friends does no harm.

So here goes H's call with me at 1:48pm

H: Hey, how's it going on?
Me: Fine.
H: Ok, I get your tone. You are in the office and it's not convenient to talk. 
Me: Ok, bye.

And then my message with WY at 3:36pm

WY: How's first day?
Me: Hmmm. Blur. Lol.

Thereafter my message with SV at 4:20pm

SV: Hey, how's your job??? Ok?
Me: First day nia. Don't know yet.

And then B's messages with me at 6:18pm

B: In Milan now. Just checked in. Need a shower first. How's your first day baby!?
Me: Milan 23 degrees. Fashion City. I'm jealous already. Souvenir have to be LV jor... Lol. Just joking... 1st day is boring. Hmm... Very operational stuff. The working environment is for married people. Sigh. But I shouldn't judge a book by it's cover huh. Give it 3 mths trial. Update you more next time on phone. And I thought you've forgotten about my first day... Hehe... Thanks & muacks. Have Fun
B: Whats app later after I sort out.

And then B never get back to me. Miserable me. When IK's message popped up, the childish me who was by then deprived of attention went loud and full blast at 7:22pm

IK: How is first day? Newbie...
Me: Tiring
IK: Do what on first day? Until so tired
Me: Listen to people talk. 
IK: .....
Me: And speak. Burst my talking, listening & questioning quota of the day. Zzzz.... And I can't live a day without pc / laptop. Which I did today. 
IK: :s
Me: And I miss PwC my comfort zone. Change resistant. You know... And I'm not used to an office filled with aunties shouting at each other on supply chain management. Zzzz.... That's about it. Laments for my first day. I need a beer ~~~ Lol
IK: Sounds like you had a fun filled day. More to come on second day. Good that you've finally!! Moved out of your comfort zone... Haha.. A day without a laptop can be killer... 
Me: Tell me about it T_T
IK: Beer ah... You'd find every excuse to get a beer won't ja. Aren't you still recovering from flu?
Me: Cured. By my new company. 
IK: Cured my ass!! Overnight
Me: Boredom cure flu. Never hear before meh
IK: .. Must be some kind of PY logic. You've have to explain to me next time you see me. Boredom can kill a person.. Not flu. But since today is your first day of work... Anything goes.. Hehe
Me: Speechless**
IK: Haha. So today you finish work early I gather
Me: Already at home la. If not how to be so responsive in what's app
IK: You already say nothing to do in office. So can what's app anytime
Me: Office hour is 8.30am to 5.30pm. FYI.
IK: Yes yes. I know you a very law abiding citizen.
Me: Memang. This is probably the first time I talk so much to you on what's app. You see the effect of this job on me?!?!
IK: So is that a good thing or bad?
Me: You say leh
IK: You choose the direction one wor. I was the one who was on sideline supporting. So memang talking to me is a bad thing now lar. Sigh
Me: Not that la... Never mind. 3 months trial. Like pc software. Ask me the same question again in Dec :) Hahaha. Geng. I just cheered myself up :)
IK: So meaning my next what's app message can only be in Dec.
Me: Lol. You still working izit?
IK: Nah... Couldn't concentrate... So went for dinner. You eaten, eating? 
Me: Neither. Diet. :P
IK: Diet but can think of beer....
Me: Liquid diet. PY philosophy. :P
IK: You outspoke me today in so many ways
Me: Thank you. Haha. Enjoy your dinner

Not exactly a short post isn't it (I know, I know.... ). But it's still subtle (in a doubtful tone). Haha, whatever.... It's worth remembering. I feel loved and cared for, friends. And that's partly because I blast out a FB status today stating....

"First day of school"

Quit Smoking Challenge

Whenever I mention to friends of my quit smoking challenge, close friends of mine would simply scoff at me (I wanted to say friends who know me well, but figured that the statement would imply that I couldn't do it).

Off and on I will keep trying. My present post about my quit smoking challenge indicates the 0% success level of my attempts to quit. But hey, at least I'm trying right!

Bought myself some quit smoking patches weeks ago. By right once I start using the patches, I'm not suppose to smoke at all......... Myself, while using the patches, I cut down my ciggies consumption by 50% (I smoke one pack per day previously. Yeah, I'm a chain smoker). Pharmacists and non-smoker friends would say that this is not the right way to do it. But hey, I'm proud enough that I manage to to cut 50%, if not all. 

I'm on the 5th week of the 12th weeks program. Wish me luck!

Missing Billy

Despite getting onto each other's nerves on petty matters, there's a weight in my heart after you left.

Despite telling friends and yourself that my eyes will not get teary while sending you to the airport, the tears came. Uncontrollable. My eyes are now slightly red and swollen and my nose looks like one of a red reindeer.

Last month and last week, I found it annoying when you occupied my room and I have less personal time. Now, I miss your belongings occupying the empty space in my desk, my drawer, my floor and my room. Now, I miss you occupying my time.

I miss you. All the best ~
