Genting Trip

Just came back from a 2D1N Genting trip yesterday.

28 Dec 2004
1600 - reached Lavendar MRT station bus stop and waited for Regine.

1640 - Regine finally arrived (estimated time). At this time, it was raining heavily and so we decided to have something to eat in the ICA building.

1730 - Rain had stopped. We walked towards Golden Mile Complex to ask the tour agency on how to check in for hotel, our free breakfast, etc.

1740 - This time, we really felt we had too much of time to spare until 2130. At 2130 then we can board the tour bus. We took a bus to Bugis to kill time.

2000 - Took a bus back to Golden Mile Complex.

2030 - Had dinner at a Thai Restaurant.

2115 - Check in at the tour agency. Got our seat number and bus number. Okay, we were to sit at the very first row.

2140 - Bus arrived and we boarded the bus. The bus was quite spacious.

2200 - Finally, the bus made its way to Genting. I am so exicited.

The journey was really long but we were awake all the way to Genting. E…
Really don't understand why CNA keeps using the word "tidal waves" to describe those giant waves in Sri Lanka when the correct word to use should be "tsunami" or "harbor waves". CNA needs to learn from BBC.
Never Give UpI'll never give up fighting till the end
If I fall along the way I'll get up and try again
But never shall I accept the fact of defeat
I've set goals in life and those I must meet
But never will I let negativity hold me down
Those who think positive I keep them around
Never shall I dwell on things in the past
Bad times come but never do they last
I shall never give in to those who are weaker than I
If I give up now why not lay down and die
Never Give Up
Whenever my handphone rings and I see "Andrew Calling", I will feel a bit annoyed. I will get his call at least twice per day.
Wow!!! I received this sms from Andrew few minutes ago:

"7 days to Christmas.Need 4000 from each store.Hope u all can push hard. I will be organising a dinner after u all stop working.Those interested pls sms.Treat by mi,eleanor n celeste."

$4000 is not a problem to me I guess since I already hit $1400 for just today! However, I think I will choose to forgo the dinner. I just want to finish my work and get off with it. Count me out!
Met up with my gf for breakfast this morning at 8:30am near her house. Poor Regine, she had to wake up so early in the morning just to have breakfast with me. I left for Takashimaya at around 9:20am and reached there at around 9:40am. I was attached to help out in ammending price tags and stock replenishment. Arriving too early or on the dot was not a good choice at least for sales line. I was made to loiter around for 20 minutes before Andrew called me to meet up. His life being a sales merchandisher wasn't that good either. He had to bear any responsibility should a sales promoter commit anything wrong. The Taka sales promoter had got the price tag for both toys at the Civic Plaza and the level 3 stores mixed up and this created a big hoo-ha yesterday. Because of this mistake, Andrew had a good couple of hours of lecture from Eleanor, his superior. Eleanor even came down personally with her assistant, Celest, to oversee the running. All was done by 2pm and then Eleanor called fo…
Yesterday after work, I took bus no. 97 and rushed to Harbour Front to meet my gf for a shooting stars sighting at Tanjung Beach, Sentosa. This would be our second shooting stars sighting together. We settled down at the hawker near bus interchange for dinner at around 10pm. It was quite late but we knew we had enough time for the last bus to Sentosa. Regine had checked that the last bus to leave for Sentosa was scheduled at 11pm. After our hearty fried prawn noodles dinner, I decided to buy some finger food. Just 1 curry puff, 1 banana ball, and 1 roti john required almost 10 minutes! We happily walked towards the bus berth to board the bus to Sentosa only to realize last bus was scheduled at 10:30pm instead. We were about 5 minutes late. Without much of a choice, we took a cab to Sentosa.

This time round, we were more well-prepared than our previous one. We laid newspapers on the sand, forming an area measured approximately at 3m by 3m. Strong winds did not deter us but rather, it m…
Called my gf just now but then no one answered the phone. I called in a bid to have an early lunch with her but... never mind.
2 pallets of stock arrived and hell began. Already, my department has not much space for new stocks and yet 2 pallets of stock came. I first attempted to stack up high up but then was told by the assistant manager not to stack up too high. That is contradictory because my supervisor wants me to stack up high and then the manager forbids me to do so. Okay, I heed the manager advice and create a new column to stack. My area now really resembles a warehouse, with lots of goods. I will be expecting 120 more remote control cars tomorrow.

Today was unlucky for me. I was trapped in the goods lift for 15 minutes. At that time, there were 3 victims including myself in the lift, and one of them was a lady. That lady was a promoter but acted like a distribution assistant to me. She banged the lift, shouted like nobody business, scolded vulgarities, and all-in-all, she was an impatient person. I tried to keep my cool so as to conserve my energy and not to perspire. We were saved in 15 minutes tim…
My dear is so sweet. For 2 consecutive days, she has dropped by my work place just to have dinner with me even though I can only spare her less than 1 hour after I minus off time taken for me to walk back to my work place to continue my work after dinner break. She needs to take a bus from her house, alight at the Suntec Convention Centre bus stop, walk all the way to Carrefour, and then have dinner with me. After the less than an hour dinner with me, she goes home straight. Poor her.. I really really appreciates her effort. I will cherish her!
Today is my 2nd day of work at Suntec Carrefour. Sales for today is better than yesterday's maybe because finally I am able to demonstrate remote control cars, all thanks to fully charged batteries. There is one product I am selling named "Fast Track Street Racer" which I really condemn. This is one product which I will need to send for return everyday because of its poor mechanical construct. It breaks down easily. However, that unreliable machine is my best seller because of its cheap price tag at only $10.90. Many will be attracted and fooled by the price to buy it for a gift for somebody. God bless him or her.
Too boring this afternoon and so I went to check out friends' computing web site. I come to conclude something. I hate those people who put up group projects for sale without gaining approval from the other group mates. I see this as low and cheap.

I shall name the person here with an encryption: olxtpy

Decryption Hint: I am using Caesar Cipher. It cannot be that difficult to decrpyt it since the keyspace is just 25.

I cannot imagine anyone with a proper mind will do this. This world is becoming filthy.
Took me 3 hours to get home from JB custom to my house! There was a heavy causeway jam on my way back and I was stuck along the causeway for more than an hour! Mind you I am standing all the way on the 170 bus, shifting my weight from left to right umpteen times. It was just sheer poor luck for me.
Bought a pair of track shoes for my gf today. Cost of the shoes is $119 but with 15% off and my $50 gift voucher, it end up only $47.25. Shopped at Raffles City Royal Sporting House, Taka Stadium, and then Lucky Plaza Royal Sporting House before making our mind on a pair. The pair I would say is not bad at all. My original intention is to spring a surprise on Christmas and pass her a pair of shoes for her. But my acting skills is just too lousy and my supposedly scheme becomes too obvious. Sigh.. But never mind. $47.25 is a lot to me but then I find it worth the money since it is for my dearest dear!
I went to my gf's house after my today's paper to watch vcd. I made a call to her informing her of my arrival so she could come down for lunch first. Instead, she requested me to buy a packet of soya bean before coming to her house. I wondered why she did not want to come down for lunch or request me to help her pack lunch. Really weird.

With the packet of soya bean, I walked up the stairs and knocked on the door. I entered her house and saw 2 bowls of rice and some side dishes with plates on top as covers. I knew it. I was really touched. Oh my god! My dear actually woke up early this morning to wish me good luck for my exam. My dear actually woke up early this morning to buy fresh vegetables from the wet market. My dear actually woke up early this morning to prepare lunch for me. I was and am really touched.

My dear is so sweet.
After more than a month of hardwork, ordeal of having to study long hours for exam is finally over. My examination spans across 2 months - 19th Nov to 2nd Dec. Isn't that torturous? Ya, as if.

I am going to start work on the 6th this month. Find me at Suntec Carrefour toys section.
I want to wish myself best of luck for my tomorrow's history paper. I know I won't be able to do very well for this paper but I do hope I can get a S for that paper. Bless my pen, bless my handwriting, bless my brain, bless my mind, bless my 2hrs, ...
