So after scoring through the classifieds daily over the last two weeks, trying to find a decent admin/data entry job, I have failed rather miserably.

And aside from doing the above mentioned, I have been slacking around at home, re-watching awesome HIMYM episodes along with my Legend of the Condor Heroes DVDs and, well, sleeping.

I don’t like not having anything to do because it makes me rather lazy.

Not to mention that even though I have thought about changing my layout (it’s been up for like, more than a year. Or is it two years now?) I just can’t get my creative juices together to come up with a neat and awesome layout like this current one. (I should mention that Alexis Bledel is still really pretty.)

Anyway, I have finally upgraded to WordPress 2.7.1 and I’m still trying to get used to the new interface :?

Rey‘s finally in Australia and I will really miss him. No more 3-am-Carl’s-Junior-burgers for me, I guess. Or awesome talk and HIMYM references

Anyway, Xavier introduced me to a bar job and I’m hoping to start next week and switch to full-time next month. So, no more hoping-for-an-admin-job for me. It’s back to the bar!

As a final note, Tarmidzie told me that the Coldplay concert tickets have all been sold out All I can say is: SO FAST?!

So I chilled with Rey last night, hanging out at East Coast McCafe, drinking super sweet mocha while feeding this handsome stray cat twister fries.

We spent the first part talking about HIMYM and after locating to a bench at the beach, we talked about the old school cartoons of the 80’s and 90’s (Duck Tales, Tale Spin, Duckwing Duck, Beetlejuice, Captain Planet, anyone recall?) then to eurotrash like Floorfilla’s Anthems #2 to #6 (my personal favourite is #5).

I cannot believe how much I can laugh whenever I’m with him. It’s either he cracks me up or vice versa. Every chilling session always ends up with the aftermath of multiple laughing sessions.

And to top the night off (well, wee hours, since we left East Coast Park around four in the morning), he was overtaken by some car (I’m never good with car brands and models) while we were deep in some conversation. Totally stunned, he stepped on the accelerator and just zoomed ahead, crossing to the opposite lane to overtake that car (since it was a two lane road). He probably hit 80km/h, I don’t know, but all I know was that suddenly, we both noticed the hump ahead and he still had time to go, “Oh shit!” before pressing the brakes and allowing the car to actually sail over the hump without scrapping anything.

On a side note, I’m still looking for a temporary admin job. Job hunting is so not easy when it’s not F&B related :?

I had the best time on Friday because I was listening to Chicane perform live at Chivas Live @ RVP. I was with Sham and Joe at the VIP/VVIP bar and we were just having fun

So it was The Happy People Company’s 3rd birthday party on Monday at Dempsey Ben & Jerry’s and my batch of scoopies decided to meet up and head to the bash together.

It was a rather huge event. The moment we, the newbie scoopies, settled down at a relegated corner, we started taking a lot of pictures

Mirror, mirror on the wall...

It was like some drinking Sunday or something. As Charlene and Charlotte’s folks were out of town, they decided to host a house party. So after work on Saturday, (or early Sunday morning considering we got off at about three in the morning) we made our various ways to their place with mixers and ice (food, snacks and alcohol were provided).

When we arrived, Johnson (the part-time chef) was there and, yes, he was frying the finger food in the kitchen. And I, being the bartender, was asked by Charlene to make a massive mojito with this fruit punch bowl. It was a trial and error thing but it turned out to be pretty good. Bacardi and Absolut didn’t interest me but the wine did

We made a hell of a ruckus playing house and trance tracks off Santos’ iPod, playing group games, daring each other, drinking, smoking and just talking the roof off and the condo-management had to rap on the door three times :?

Around seven, everyone was pretty worn out and started leaving a couple of hours later. Edmond was pretty tickled by the fact that Saufi was pretty tipsy. As we walked out to the road to get a cab, the latter was singing “7 Days” by Craig David, saying the most random things (like how rare it was to smell the early morning air) and waving and saluting at every single vehicle that drove past us

As everyone made their way home, I made my way to RSAF Open House 2008. I know, everyone said it would be boring but I just wanted to go for the heck of it. Ha! Still, after all, I did want to get a license once

After that, I had to meet Weili since he wanted to surprise my colleagues at work by popping by (and trying to get free alcohol and beer. HAHA!) And since I was there a couple of hours before my shift started, my AM actually offered me beer!

It was a nice quiet Sunday with customers popping by every now and then. But, man, I was really tired since I was drinking and had no sleep at all :?

To be extremely tired. Not to be confused with “shag” (the British colloquialism for having sex) even though it’s often misspelled that way in Singapore.

After the last time I went drinking (and when I say drinking, I meant drink a lot), I have been refraining from drinks altogether. However, after the last drinking session, I drank for another three days straight.

I drank on Saturday because I was down. And, apparently, a childhood friend was down as well. So I offered to drink with him on Sunday night.

We went cheap drinking by meeting near Bedok Reservoir and purchased beer, ice and some snacks at the supermarket before making our way up to the top of the multi-storey carpark.

It was nice, just sitting at the top, talking and sharing every other moment

Last night, on a rather last minute note, I met up with Sam, a primary school classmate of mine. I suggested drinking (again!) and so we had beer and martinis

A random picture of Jonathan Tay drinking at my workplace last Friday as the guys came over to celebrate Jon’s 23rd

I have another picture of Jonathan Ang and myself but I look super retarded and Jon Ang looks super act cute. Plus, it was a rather drunk Jon Tay that took the picture :?

On a random note, I went to the hairdresser’s last night and I like my shorter, thinner and straighter hair right now!

My internship started last week and it’s boring. Well, and somewhat demanding. This is a reason why I will never get a full-time job at the office.

Since last week, I have been pulling a five-day-six-night week. I am somewhat amazed that I can just sleep for about three hours a day, pull a nine-hour long office job, then a seven-hour shift at the bar. I guess I can now claim the title Charles gave me a few months ago: Superwoman

It was pretty much a lousy day yesterday with oversleeping, getting to internship an hour late, getting crap from the higher up folks, being demanded to do stuff that gets rejected 7863458976 times, re-doing those stuff 7863458977 times, listening to someone tell me something that I have been suppressing for months so now it becomes a reality, missing training because of internship, getting to work late because of internship…

Okay, basically, internship sucks.

That is why I wanted to go drinking. So, after work at half past three this morning, some colleagues and I ended up at a bar drinking beer and Chivas and watching the Chelsea-Liverpool match. I am not much of a soccer fan but I supported Liverpool this morning. In fact, everyone else was supporting them. But darn Chelsea! If that penalty was not scored, it could have been a draw.

Charlene was the only one rejoicing and making a whole lot of noise, irritating the shit out of everyone else (She is only supporting them because Liverpool kicked her team, Arsenal, out.)

I enjoyed myself tremendously. It made me forget (more or less) about my lousy day. And it made me look forward to working tonight

Yeah, I love working
