tis the season to be jolly

I think the best Christmas gift is your salary coming in on Christmas Eve. Yesh I got paid for the first time woohoo. But if you're thinking about asking me how much moneh I can has, GO AWAY DOWAN FRIEND YOU. Because I'm still freakin poor... and my dear boss asked me to buy Blackberry lagi T.T OK so he was joking (I hope) but there's so much I wanna do now that I'm getting my own moneh. Like travel.

God I miss UK so much. What wouldn't I give to be able to shoot the autumn leaves and the frozen people in winter. And I can just imagine Paris being absolutely gorgeous this time of the year. sigh. Cold as it may be, my inner shutterbug is yearning to go out and just shoot for a day or two. I really miss doing the tourist thing... even if it is in Penang. *makes note to do a proper Penang shoot someday*

But being here kinda sucks out the inspiration somehow. I miss the simple days of vegetating and Photoshopping pics before I started working, which I don't get to do much these days cuz I don't shoot... and when I do my photos are so sad I can't bear to look at them :S

Anyway tis the season to be jolly.

And this makes me jolly! =D My Secret Santa present from Singaporean Nuffie Elaine - stuff from Sephora which we cannot has in Malaysia. That alone makes me jolly sigh I'm so easily bought. It also smells like caramel toffee which is SO AWESOME okay. The Singaporean Nuffies are all so sweet btw.

This is from Boss Ming for everyone! Cool gift even though I'm not in it =( Hopefully I will be though the next time there's a pic like that. Yes I know my recent pics are ugly see I told you T.T

Just to prove what an epic failure I am as a shutterbug, I didn't bring Charlie along for the company Christmas dinner. sigh what is wrong with me wtf. On the other hand, you  know you're the one with the awesome job when you can get your boss to do this:


Merry Christmas everyone! *throws popcorn and confetti*

the leftover crumbs

So here's a few things I've learned since I started working a couple weeks ago:
  1. I am actually as overrated as I always thought I was. heehee.
  2. I've got a speshul 'meet the bloggers' voice which is up to two octaves higher than the voice I normally use to yell stuff like "MAHAI YOU THINK I VERY FREE AR."
  3. I really gotta learn to pose nicer in photos or risk appearing in random blogs looking like a drunken spastic monkey.
  4. I really need more clothes. Really seriously.
  5. I think I need to move out to preserve my sanity.
  6. I need my carrr. My lousy ancient whiny squeaky holey car.
Yup. That just about covers the basic stuff sigh. And I just realised I managed to take 800 photos of a wedding and hate all of them. ugh.

On the other hand, meeting up with old friends was teh awesumness =) Pity though that it was too spontaneous and Charlie didn't come along. meh. You'd think I'd have more interesting stuff to blog about, what with my awesome new job and all but noooo this is the best that it gets. pffft.

i sees cheez

Highlight of the day:

Me: Hey I like your jeans! So nice!
Cheesie: Thanks!
Me: You got them at Baci right?
Cheesie: *squeals* Yeah how did you know?!
Me: Cuz I read your blog!
Cheesie + me: SQUEEEEE

Awww isn't she like the cutest thing ever. And really nice too omg I *heart* her and Vivien they're so niceee. So yeah yesterday night marks my first time doing the whole meeting people hi-nice-to-meet-you thing. And if you're actually reading this blog you probably know that this is when I usually BSOD. So that's another one of my.... issues... that I gotta work out before I get booted for being anti-social or something T.T

Which reminds me.... I really should go shopping for more clothes now. Without my shopping buddy. sniff. And with no cash FML. My moneyflow is so one-way now.

so i am a non-bum

So I've only just had a much-needed bath after the 5 hour journey back here, even though I've been home for more than 4 hours. Because well, taking out 5 tonnes of trash and cleaning a place that both stinks and looks like it hasn't been introduced to a mop and broom since 1937 does tend to take up some time. Tough shit too, knowing that all that is gonna last all of maybe 1 day before I find 3 trash bags glaring balefully at me from 3 feet away. And I'm going to be sleep deprived. But dammit I will be happy.

HAPPY I say. Because in a few hours, I'll offically be the new ProbieNuffie. Nothing better to psyche you up for the first day of work like an orange office and friends who want your job. I love you friends. hurhur. So here's to a (hopefully) awesome job, more orange office time and less stinky room time.
