A Lonely Thursday Night...

It's 11.21pm on a Thursday night and I'm still in the office. I'm not kidding when I say for the past 2 weeks, I have absolutely NO TIME to blog. All thanks to the upcoming X'MAS FAIR that's due to happen next weekend, Nov 24 & 25 @ Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza. It's our bi-annual mega event of the year.

To all tech-ky consumers, this is not to be missed. Check out the bargain deals and latest gadgets!

More details to come...

Cheap Des


I hereby announce that Xin and I are severing all ties with you!!! Do you realise you're one serious case of "heavy colour light friend" (read: 重色轻友) friend?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Everytime you enter a relationship, she is ALL you can see. The world just revolves around you and her. The word "friend" suddenly disappears from your dictionary.

You promised to meet up last Saturday before flying back to Melbourne. Xin was so excited on her debut trip to JB, after hearing us talk about the cheap and good food & shopping there.

But WHERE WERE YOU??????????????????????????????????????????????????
(Only God knows.)

You were uncontactable, AGAIN. Very disappointed.

Don't get us wrong. Olivia's a lovely girl. We love her. You two seem so in love. We're very happy for you both.

But pls pls pls pls pls...... learn to juggle both girlfriend and friends equally.

Otherwise, it won't be long before you realise you have not many numbers left in your phone book.

We want the old Des back!

To all my other friends, pls DON'T EVER (I repeat... NEVER EVER...!!!) do this to me. It's unbearable. I've lost a couple of friends to relationships. One of whom is my bestest friend since poly.

Ever since she got attached (which was over 2 years ago), I've not seen her more than 5 times. This pales largely in comparison to our meetup frequency of once a week in the past.

Sigh...... Maybe it's time to make new friends......

ACER Sucks

I vow this is the first and LAST time I'm buying anything from Acer.

Slightly after a year after I bought my current Acer laptop, I noticed the appearance of a line that ran from top of the LCD screen to the bottom. I thought nothing about it.

A few days later, another line appeared. Still, I did nothing.

A week later, I had 10 vertical lines of assorted colours on my laptop screen. Hmmm... colourful.

I logged on to Acer website to find out the location of the service centre, and "on the way" checked my warranty expiry date. To my dismay, my warranty was only ONE year!!!! And I just passed the one year mark!!!

I mean, I paid full price for this laptop, it wasn't on any promotion! Shouldn't I deserve at least 2 years of warranty????????????????????

Now, I have to spend $550 to repair the hardware defect!! What rubbish?!

I'm even more upset at the unreliability of Acer products. Afterall, the laptop's only over a year old! What shit is this?!

I refused to pay, and decided to live with it. Another 6 months down the road, this is how my screen looks now......

Power Puffies

September 19, 2007 --- My first day in the Big Red Corporation, which, once upon a time, was a Monopoly.

November 01, 2007 --- My 45th day in the Big Red Corporation (also translating into 1.5 months of stay), whose current biggest competitor is the Big Green Firm.

Ok fine, so 75% of the Events Marketing Team is new. It doesn't mean we can be trampled over by other departments who think "they know everything simply because they've been around longer".

It doesn't mean we have to bear the consequences from mishaps that occurred during the transition period.

Because 75% of the team is new, all the more is a good opportunity for us to relook into the old system and make adjustments to make our operations more efficient and budget-sensitive, at the same time, keeping the effective modus operandi passed on by the predecessors.

The Events Marketing Team is now made up of 4 Power Puffies (short for Power Puff Girls). We came from different backgrounds. Before September 19, all of us didn't know the existence of one another. Today, we have built a good rapport. Our working styles, though different, surprisingly are able to complement.

We will fight all enemies who try to invade our castle.

Another 16 months later...

When I was 14 years old, I couldn't wait to turn 16 (so I could go FIRE Disco).

When I was of eligible age to go FIRE, I wished I were 21 instead. So I could openly step into the theatres to watch R(A) movies.

Until then, the clock always seemed to tick extra slowly. Now, time seeps through my fingers like sand in an hourglass.

It didn't hit me that my last blog post was (exactly) 16 months ago! SIXTEEN freakin' months... OMG!

I'm one who does things on impulse spasms. Blogging spasms are back again.

More to come...
