Same bench, different feelings

I am sitting at the bench where I use to sit a year ago, while waiting for daddy to get off work. Accept that, almost a year ago, I was crying but now I am smiling from ear to ear.

I use to hate my previous job so badly that I was all down and depressed but not this job. I love every single bit of it. I have to admit that there are hiccups here and there, but that is how a normal working environment should be like.

My current employer, Ben, is very appreciative and have been rather supportive on my decision. I’m glad that I try out for this job and I really owe it to Jason and also my family for encouraging me to take up this job. It was a challenge as I never done UI design before and right now I am happier than ever!

I say it is very rare that one can find a job that he or she enjoys doing. This experience has been great. But, I have to move on, and try other things. Well let’s hope that I will get to do what I love in future :)

For now.. Australia here I come!

I’m blogging again… like finally

Woah, I cannot believe I am updating my blog again. I never thought I would actually update. Like after how many donkey months?! I also kinda forgot how to log in to my website. That is how freaking long I didn’t blog.

Just a quickie. This year has been a bitch to me. I had a horrible first job, lost my loved one, non-stop going tot he hospital, having friends come and go, not having enough time to myself, not enough sleep…

Enough is enough. I quited my job, and found another. Finally moving on with life, accepting how life works and slowly picking myself up. I also have decided to take a break from here, from all this sadness. Therefore, I applied for a work and travel visa to Australia. I have got everything done and my visa is approved; after so much pain (very painful process) going through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Putrajaya just to get my paper work sorted out.

See, I wanted to escape from my daily routine so bad that I actually applied for a visa and will be leaving on 1st March 2011, but then right now at this point in time, I am feeling very heavy hearted.

In the process of picking myself up, I realize that I don’t really need to run away from here to be happy. Because to be poko-poko-blue-bunny honest, I am happy right now. I have been hitting the gym very often, work all my troubles away, been helping mom set up an online boutique which is doing pretty okay(www.vainpod.com *wink*), been working with Studio 212, meeting clients, developing iPhone apps and design for a month and plus now. Seriously, I am liking what I am doing. Today is my off day. And yes, working with Studio 212 I really get off days off. Unlike my previous company, although it’s my off days, weekends, public holidays or whenever I am on MC, I still have to work from home. Thinking about it makes me sick. Well in order to keep myself super busy, I even signed up for the Nike KL vs SG 5K run and I bought tickets to watch Adam Lambert live in KL.

I guess i shall not dwell on what is gonna happen next. What ever comes, comes. I will make it a point to upload all the pictures that is in my draft box this week.

Will upload again soon :)

One door closed, another opens

I have officially quit my job. I guess I haven’t been blogging much about it.

Well long story cut short, I took up a job at an agency in KL Sentral. Convenient location, great environment, cool bosses, awesome colleagues and very well paid, but I decided to take a step out of my comfort zone.

I know this is ridiculous, but something tells me that opportunity is coming and something big is awaiting. I have not got a job yet i quit my current job. must be disappointing for daddy… but I just have this feeling, I belong somewhere else and I will be happier then.

Well, don’t want to waste a beautiful Monday morning like this.

I hope today will be a progressive day.

2009

This year is full of shit. Loads of bullshit.

So many bad news and deaths.

It is so heartbroken to see what has happen and why it all happen. I want this year to go away.

Let 2010 come fast, may all the newly weds of this year brings new life to celebrate the next.

I’m Moving Out

I feel really heavy hearted right now. I just finish packing my stuff and am waiting for my ride.

This is my final semester, and am graduating soon, hopefully..

*fingers crossed*

It’s been 4 good ol’ years. I am so gonna miss this place. I will miss staying in MMU, esp NEA apartment. way much comfy than staying in the hostel and in Cyberia.

(the night view is even nicer)

Well the things that i will miss most is attending classes, assignments, exams submissions, the swimming pool and the life guards and above all, my fellow friends and lecturers in MMU.

It’s been really wonderful.. It has. =’)

*happy tear*

Journey to the hospital? It was hell? I hate it?

I am so glad to be back!

What happen. I started having off and on fever since the Saturday, two weeks ago. Just came back from my Life Saving Course and got immediate sunburn and slight fever. Fever never went off. Basically was sick for the whole mid-term break.

Seeking help. Then it came to Sunday night, a week after that. Mid term break ended, went back to campus, and thats when i started vomiting non-stop. Went to the 3 different doctor, that week. Diagnosed with a viral fever and got myself a few jabs on the butt and a blood test. Not dengue, so it is a relieve. But more vomiting and fever. Can’t do anything but to lie down and get some good rest.

Vomiting worsen as the day goes, body rejecting food intake, then on Thursday, body started to reject water. can’t even take a single droplet of water.

Grandma suggested that I seek a Chinese medium for help. I went to the temple, the guy went on TRANCE!!! I am so so so so so so so scared. So sorry to say this, but I was freaking shaking like a leaf when I saw him go on trance. He held my hand and told me what symptoms I had been having for this past few days, and then he gave something for recovery.

I went home and do as he said. I SWEAR! i started eating and drinking. was craving for some sweet drinks and food. So then, I took a nap and that night everything came out. nope, nothing was digested. I survived 4 days without food and 2 days plus without water. Till last Saturday midnight, I was admitted to Pantai, Cheras.

The condition. When i was in the hospital, I had a quick blood test, and normal procedure, then admitted. Found out that fever was a bad viral fever, had severe gastric problem. And because of the gastric that I had, it trigger some kidney problem, mainly due to dehydration.

The feeling. It sucks to stay in the hospital. I don’t remember my last stay in HUKM was this awful. The bed was really uncomfortable, the food was bad, toilet was funny (it had a mini ramp like those you see in X games), injections was painful, medication was bitter, had the whole room to myself was scary, hand was numb and blood drawing was the worst!

Bored and lonely. I never really tell anyone that I was admitted, whether my friends or family. Grandma called from Singapore, Daddy and I had to lie. So I was dead bored to be honest. I never felt so bored and lonely before. I didn’t want my friends to see me in that state, didn’t want my parents to stay over to accompany me, because the environment was really uncomfortable , so I will tell them that I am OKAY.

Daddy brought me my handphone, PSP, hoping it will keep me company, but I was on drips, couldn’t even type a proper message and can’t even play a proper game.

There’s nothing to be watched on TV when there is no Astro. All I see on TV is just Malaysia’s ex and new Prime Minister. Every single hour of the day, same old news. The only time I was really watching TV was on Sunday morning, when Spongebob was aired on TV3, or was it NTV7?

THANK GOODNESS FOR CLEO top 50 Bachelors MAGAZINE!

if it hadn’t be it, i will be counting holes on my body.

Hygiene. I haven’t been able to bathe or shower since Thursday. I STINK. I cannot take it. Same clothes, same undies, and to make things worst, i had period. Waited and waited till Sunday when the nurse finally let me off drip for an hour. I bathe, and bathe and bathe. Getting my hair wet never felt this good!

What I don’t like. Taking blood! They never find my vein. Honestly, I am a very weird human being. Only can draw blood from right hand, and since my right hand is on drip, they have got no choice but to take blood from my left. The doctor have to poke 2-4 times to get it right. T___T

I appreciate. The nurses and doctor who are so good at their job.

Things I did when I reach home. take off clothes & bandages, bathe & shave weigh myself =D, spray a lot of EA. my fav.

Now. I am feeling so so much better. Recovering well, worried at the same time though. Don’t know if I can make it to my presentation this coming 14th. I have to speed things up, try to catch up with time that I have lost.

Day 34: Here I am…

I hope I don’t have to stay in the writer’s room all day again. pretty much sick of it.Yesterday had 3 meetings back to back. no make that 4. First was a presentation to the ECD then to the ACD and then to the Accounts Manager. After all that meeting my Art Director called me in for a brief and to find out i have to do 3D on Maya… Only had half a bun for dinner. Hopefully they will let me go today. I want McD’s and more onion rings!
