This is nice - finding positive out of every negative - which we don't always manage to do. I am thankful...
1. For the husband who snores all night, because he is at home asleep with me and not with someone else.
2. For my teenage daughter who is complaining about doing dishes, because that means she is at home & not on the streets.
3. For the taxes that I pay because it means that I am employed.
4. For the mess to clean after a party because it means that I have been surrounded by friends.
5. For the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat.
6. For my shadow that watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine.
7. For a floor that needs mopping, and windows that need cleaning because it means I have a home.
8. For all the complaining I hear about the government because it means that we have freedom of speech.
9. For the parking spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking and that I have been blessed with transportation.
10. For the noise I have to bear from my neighbours because it means that I can hear.
11. For the pile of laundry and ironing because it means I have clothes to wear.
12. For weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have been capable of working hard.
13. For the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I am stilll alive.
AND FINALLY ....... for received e-mails because it means I have friends who are thinking of me, at least.

The beginning of the week was very tough. This was something that I was not expecting to begin my week with. While struggling to do the handover smoothly, there would be an event to be held on Tuesday night. I was feeling very frustrated and my temper get short fused very easily. My fellow colleagues were not very helpful + kept getting on my nerves and many things were just throw to me and my poor partner to do. What made me so upset was the constant loud chatting in the office. It was like a fish market. Despite drowning myself with a pair of headphones, it wasn't very helpful and I could still hear them very clearly. Increasing the volume would not benefit me either.. those are my precious ears!
I dreaded most especially the event as it was held in a pub. And i dun particularly like the place alot. The music are loud and many pple smoked. =( but to keep my mood positive, i pray for a timeoff .... and also my partner cum colleague shared with me that she was very sad to see me go and i decided to move forward with a positive attitude to help her with the upcoming event with an 101% effort. Drawing experience from the previous event, I had order lots more food as the buffet bar food are so miserable and as we all know all ang mos are super huge big eater....
Not long my whole body from head to toe was reeked with all smokers' smoking + beer... EEK!
Many colleagues from my company were chosen to give out the prizes. The award winners all came forward and started handshaking and beso beso (cheek to cheek kiss) plus hands on all my female colleagues's waists & hips! My mind just went: "Please please don't ask me!"
My worst fear came true! :( I was told to give out prizes cos my stupid client couldnt find anyone to give out prizes and He just rattle off " XXX Congratulations you are the runner up for this league! Katherine from Mxxxxx Systems will present to you!"
I took a quick glance.. Phew! is an asian... is an indian! I NV FEEL SO GRATEFUL TO AN AH NEH!
Subsequently more sabotages arrived. But thankfully 90% of the award winners are asians! and 10%..... i gave them a "GOTH"(refer to ur right hand side and u know what i mean) when they collected their trophies.
so thankful! hehehe cos all my colleagues kena the beso beso except me! HAHAHA :)
So great food (fench fries + chicken wings are the best!) great fruit punch were the key highlights.
My boss announced well done! All of you will get a 1 day time off! YIPEE!
When i reach home at 11pm ... my family outcasted me....
"SISTER! U BETTER GO N WASH UR HAIR! I CAN SMELL U FROM FAR!!! EEEEKK!" - Sister
"NI QU NA LI? YAO SHI AR?! XUE REN JIA QU HE JIU!" - Dad
(where did u go? Want to die ar?! Copy pple go drink wine/beer)
Ya.. i really smell very horrible.. i took my longest bath.. 20 solid minutes... i think more..probably 30mins....
Left 2 more days =) Just hope my days passed smoothly here.. no politics .. nothing ...

PY is the best, the very very best, Can't help falling for PY.
Happy birthday to PY, the gal who has blessed us with her life.
Her smile, her encouraging ways, her zany & hyper behaviour, always gets us high.
We're so glad you came to Judea, and brought us so much joy!
We have learnt much from your way of looking Up,
We pray we can be cheering you on all the way...
Judea presents you two verses...and wishes you will always dwell in the house of our God in blessedness -- Psalm 27:4-5
One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.
Here's our closing cheer to you: "PY, PY, You're so fine. You blow our minds. Oh, PY. Oh, Oh, PY." *Repeat*
*Judea bows out*

While on my way home, i was walking towards the direction towards Raffles Place MRT station and there was this huge smoke coming from Lau Pa Sat.... was joking to my colleague, maybe the satayman's business is too good... see so much smoke...until i see this...
The fire was pretty bad. It seem to be emerge from a food stall. and these pples are still standing there watching the fire. Why can't these pples just move away?! There are gas cylinders in the food center, what if one explode??
Sometime there would not be any casualties or any mishaps, but pple just loved standing there watching trouble brewing ...
