Bitterness tastes awful. April 29, 2007

Filed under: I'm a slave for...........Work,Myself,Quote,Sermons — renzi @ 2:11 pm

“Bitterness profits no one. It definitely doesn’t profit me. It’s not part of my character. Sure, I went through it – but I’m human. But I overcame that.”

I’m sure James Miller had it worse because he served 25 years of his prison sentence and subsequently was cleared of rape because of new DNA evidence. This was quite inspiring to me at least and I’m glad I came across this in the newspapers today. And for Miller, he really got it worse. I cannot even try to imagine being in prison for a day (for one I’m still slightly afraid of the dark). His ability to forgive and forget amazes me.

Well… like I mentioned in my previous entry about my previous workplace, I’m over being bitter – it really doesn’t help anyone anyway. I’ve moved on already and well…it’s really no use harbouring anything against anyone. Ultimately if you do that, well… you’ll be the ONLY feeling the effects of feeling pissed at others. It’s really no use. Anyway in Pastor Yang’s sermon today, it really hit me and he challenged all of us for the 40-day-fast of not criticising. I will try.

🙂 Oh oh…last but not least (yes I’ve saved the best for last) Praise God! I’ve got a job! WhhhhhhEEEEEeeeee Heheh…

 

Another sad love song…

Filed under: Lyrics,Videos — renzi @ 2:04 pm

This is a song I’m sure I could have related to last year. It’s quite a goldie-oldie but I still love it. I remember going up to Malaysia in my dad’s car with this song playing in the background. It’s a nice simple tune but it’s incredibly heartbreaking 😦 Check out the video if you can…sniff sniff

I’ve been alone with you
Inside my mind
And in my dreams I’ve kissed your lips
A thousand times
I sometimes see you
Pass outside my door
Hello!
Is it me you’re looking for?
I can see it in your eyes
I can see it in your smile
You’re all I’ve ever wanted
And my arms are open wide
Because you know just what to say
And you know just what to do
And I want to tell you so much
I love you

I long to see the sunlight in your hair
And tell you time and time again
How much I care
Sometimes I feel my heart will overflow
Hello!
I’ve just got to let you know
Because I wonder where you are
And I wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely?
Or is someone loving you?
Tell me how to win your heart
For I haven’t got a clue
But let me start by saying I love you

Hello!
Is it me you’re looking for?
Becuase I wonder where you are
And I wonder what you do
Are you somewhere feeling lonely?
Or is someone loving you?
Tell me how to win your heart
For I haven’t got a clue
But let me start by saying I love you

 

The meetup, AGAIN. April 28, 2007

Filed under: Friends,Photos — renzi @ 11:31 am

The babes have been meeting up every single month, at least once a month. A couple of us meet up even more once a week. Well…I’m very glad to have met them in the very company that brought us together – we were all trainees then. Now, most of us have moved on already. 🙂 I’m a little sleepy so if whatever sentences didn’t make sense, please forgive me. The whole lot of us met up at Oosh – we chilled and well, caught up. I’m still very glad that we still meet up once in a while.

My new hairstyleGerri and CindyJuls and Avril6 of us The 6 of us were the first to arrive.

Then more joined us Then more people joined us. Hehe, which of course added to the loudness of our group. Think some patrons were quite irritated with us because we were sooooo noisy *shrug*

Avril Avril and her…well…erm…her addition condiment – I’m really trying hard not make it sound off.

Kawai! Kawai!!! Hahahaha…

A few more of us The former workers of THAT place.

Mocking me At the other end of the table, the girls were mocking me. They claimed that well, I always take photos the same way, with my head tilted to one side and beat this like some Japanese chick (posing with two fingers) but but…

hehehe ….oh well..if u can’t beat them, join them! 😉

ffoooorrr mooooreeee photos…click here!

 

Addendum

Filed under: I'm a slave for...........Work — renzi @ 11:04 am

With regards to this certain entry that I posted a few days ago, I must clarify certain things.

I remember writing this “And only when I clarified things with the Managing Director (MD) did I realise that that particular arsehole (PA) was just playing games with our minds.” – OKKKAAAAaaaaaaAYYYY PA doesn’t mean the initials of someone’s name. PA was merely an acronym for “particular arsehole”… same goes for MD (ie Managing Director). Okayyy, yes I must admit that I’m a little lazy to continuously put the phrase particular arsehole so I put the shortform of the particular arsehole. I must clear the air for this (thanks sooooo damn much for highlighting this to me). Because I just realised there is actually a certain PA in the firm too (soooo sorry about that). That “particular arsehole” definitely isn’t PA. If I want to be more vicious, I would have put the initials of that particular arsehole’s name but what’s the point? 🙂

There you have it.

 

I finally did IT. April 27, 2007

Filed under: Bimbotic moments,Myself — renzi @ 11:29 am

When it comes to doing a certain act, I have, after much contemplation, decided to do it but backed out at the very last minute. This has happened countless times. I’ve seen so many of my friends, especially girls, succumb to it after some time but still because of my strong and firm beliefs (or the lack of it), I have managed to overcome temptation and not do it. However yesterday after so much coaxing and reassurance from a special someone, I finally agreed to it. I did IT. At first it was extremely painful – it was a struggle, especially the first shot. I had to fight back my tears because it was so sacred and even people like my mother told me that if I did it , I would regret it. Thoughts, especially about my mother’s advice, kept surging through my head and it was resounding but I thought I should do it because it was then or never.

As mentioned, I allowed the special someone to well, do it, and share the experience with me. Due to the fact that we’re creatures of habit, it was hard but as the act progressed, I grew more accustomed to it. In fact, I was actually enjoying it. Finally it was over. This experience was definitely emotionally, physically and mentally tiring.

I’d like to thank that special someone for helping me overcome it. That special someone is my hairdresser – thanks for cutting my hair 🙂 I love my hair now~!

 

Meetups, makeups? April 26, 2007

Filed under: Food,Friends,Recommendations — renzi @ 9:56 am

Okay… i know that title was so random but oh well… As mentioned earlier, the Nittan babes always meet up. Even before I left, we often had dinners.

Like a few days before my departure of the company, the gals gave me a treat for my birthday at Chakun. And I must mention this – the food at this place is actually quite good, for the price! I always enjoy myself when I go there.

Gerri and IJuls and Avril Us – Before dinner was served.

Fried Rice I’m not really a fried rice person but this was actually quite yummy.

Duck This is one of their signature dishes and one of my FAVOURITES!!! 🙂 I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeee duck!

Hor Fun When it comes to Hor Fun, you’ll see me happily eating it. You can call me a WHORE-fun 😉

Children can be cute but…

Filed under: Family,Food,Myself,Recommendations — renzi @ 9:31 am

I really rather not have any. Every camp I go re-emphasises one very simple fact – that I don’t really want to have kids. I mean kids are fun and quintessentially innocent (at least more pure than well, adults) but… nah, I can’t really imagine having more kids around 24/7… Look at my bro – he’s 11 and I feel like wringing him in the neck almost everyday.

Yeah…I’ve been doing camps and now I look like… I’m…. Malay. I mean it’s not that I don’t like Malays or anything but I’m CHinese and I want to, well… look CHinese. Oh well 🙂

I had quite good Chinese Food at Tower Club – thank you to that special someone for the treat. It was quite stressful but I enjoyed the food nonetheless. The service was good and the food was better! Did I also mention the view? We had quite a good view of Singapore’s Citiscape and it was the first time being in the Tower Club when it was pissing outside. We were actually treated to the delightful display of occasional flashes of lightnight. 🙂

Go on…look for a member and try the food in that particular Dining Room 😉 It’s probably the same standard as Li Bai at Sheraton Towers – same concept (fine dining) and well the service is impeccable.
