The JB trip was okay. Itís just like shopping in Singaporeóonly in Malaysia instead. The waiting, the bargainingÖ You get the idea. Iím never much of a shopper. Iím more into impulse buying

Iím going to try to get a cable so I can transfer pictures from my E398 to the computer. I seriously think spending SG$5 on MMS to my email is extremely pointless :mrgreen:

Last night, my family on my paternal side had our reunion dinner. I always look forward to it because that means catching up with my cousins. I only see them once a year as I donít even see them on Chinese New Year itself!

If you remember my entry for last yearís reunion dinner, my 12-year-old cousin Natalie, was very much into this card game called Dai Dee. Well, apparently, she still loves this game. So we spent our time playing that before, during, and after the dinner. Really, this girl does not know the limits :mrgreen:

Kids these days are so lucky. They get cellphones at such a young age. So we spent a number of time checking out each othersí cellphones and snapping funny pictures with the camera-enabled ones.

Two pictures (from my E398) to remember the occasion:

Me and Natalie
Me and my cousin Natalie

Wei Hao, Rolynn and Me
With my cousins, Wei Hao and Rolynn

Hmm. My family and I are on our way to Johor Bahru, Malaysia, to go shopping. The first time, I should say. I wonder whatís the special occasionóbesides the fact that the Lunar New Year is around the corner.

Oh, my youngest sister Judaxil will turn 12 tomorrow *beams*

phooey. forget whatever I said about not being allergic to panadol. I was – and am -scowls-

yesterday I took it when I started sneezing like a machine gun – non stop! so I popped 2 and got ready for work. just as I was about to wear my contacts, I saw this little bump below my eye. it looks like a mosquito bite and instantly, I knew it was the doing of the bloody panadol.

but I thought hey, it could be a coincidence. so I decided to wait for awhile to see if the ‘mosquito bite’ grew any bigger. it did. bloody hell.

so I had to msg my colleague to let her know I wouldn’t be going to work. and I spent every 5 minutes looking into the mirror to see how bad it swelled. the last time my eyes swelled was when I popped a tiny painkiller coz my wrist was hurting me and within 2 hours, my eyes were so swollen I couldn’t even open them :mrgreen:

this time was a little weird. only one eye was swollen and thankfully, it wasn’t that bad.

ok. let me clear this up: firstly, wil isn’t my boyfriend! -mock glares at ebony- he’s just a good pal I met back in 2000 during obs and he was my canoeing partner for the sea expedition. that’s all. haha. I don’t have a boyfriend -rolls eyes- no one wants me. lmao.

and the cam he got? it’s a sony p10. don’t really like the design and I saw a sony v1 today in the papers. I want that cam! *hint*

so technically, it was a bad day. but no biggie since my mom creamed me the night before. but oddly, my day ended well. not just well well but really well

was chatting with jo and I was telling her to pray really hard that I can attend pk’s birthday chalet at sentosa as my mom and I were really having cold war or something. so she was wishing me all the best of luck when I told my mom this:

“mom, my friend’s birthday is on friday and she’s having a chalet at sentosa from friday to sunday. so can I go – I mean, I’m going. can?”

haha. I was deciding whether to use the tell method or the ask method since I usually go with either way. ended up we had this talk. not those really focused talks but those she-was-busy-with-something-and-I-just-rambled-on talks.

she started by saying, “then what about work?” then I don’t know why but I just told her that I wanted to quit my waitressing job. and she started asking why. why I wanted to quit. why I wasn’t happy. what was it that I wasn’t happy about.. you get the idea.

anyway, we cleared a lot of differences that was between us for the past month and not only she let me go to pk’s chalet, I could quit my waitressing job too!

so I’ll just stick to my office job in the afternoon. really need a break. it’s tiring trying to handle two jobs and running back and forth between those two.

so today, I thought I would feel better but I think that allergy reaction is lagging or something. I broke out in rashes today. no kidding. I didn’t apply anything since I didn’t know what to apply and mom wasn’t home so here I am at my workplace typing this and hoping that the aircon here would be really cold so I don’t need to keep scratching :?

and I’m still sneezing -sniffles-
