Retrospection and Resolution

Another year has just passed me by and the wheels of time stop not for mere mortals the likes of us.
As I see the year went by like so many just alike.
I stop to think that little changes there may be till I lay still and time pass me by

I have carried on my usuall sabatical at the end of the year as the time for rest and reflection. And also I loath the prospect of having the chance to work till late during my birthday. So much so that I had never go back to the office at the end of the year and that no one will usually sees me around after christmas. As it is, I did went back to office after christmas(Boxing day) to be exact to attend to something urgent.

The rest of the time is spent on Victoria Island with my Spearman as he is really lagging in his advancement. The other tie are spent on painting the new house among other distraction.

I had known for quite a while next year would be bustling with activities on the personnal front thanks to moving to the new house, the customary and not to mention, not 1 but 2 ICT. Fuck!!! they are really milking this for all its worth.

I had spent this year scrapping by, making one compromise after another for 1 reasons and another, I wished I did not but I did and really, its pointless regretting about it now. The few high points this year is to finally got off my but and started this little space of mine and to have some of you that drops by often and leave your comment and suggestion to help me to be better. For that i am eternally grateful. My English is still atrocious and my spelling crap. I shall make it one of the main resolution to make sure that I stopped posting crap. Of the people that I know, I can only say that Paddy is the 1 inspiration that I know that getting into business while not easy, is something that is fulfilling and rewarding. Hang in there Tomato, you are doing great it will only get better.
The Student is someone that helps me to keep in check in another prospective, the youthfull but precarious point of view keeps me in check and help me to not go off a tangent.
As for lady Iris, for you grace this page with your presence and was not quick to slay those points. In that, I thank you.

Also to my wife for she actually read all these stuff and tells me how she felt about them. She knows that I sometimes keep a few thing to myself and this is one of the way which makes opening up easier. I have to thank my wifey for actually patient enough to read through all these and not just make me say which unfortunately while I am bad in writing, my lacking in eloquence will not be able to bring forth half my thoughts and feelings as easily as this.

Enough eith the last year. All I can say for next year will be,
to complete all those task that I know that lay before me and to spot and overcome all the obstacle not seen yet. To persevere in keeping this blog and to keep on with my regime of badminton and restart my weekly jog.

To really get into the eNN thing and to be worthy of the term entrepreuner.

Last of all, to complete those projects and task at work, spin off a few new ones while staying in scope of relevance and budget.

And to all of you that actually read this. Hope you had a great 2005 and that 2006 will be better for you in each and every way possible.

Another weekend burned

It was one of those weeks that left in a haze and left me even more tired.
2 full day spent at the new house painting it and it is now painted to a certain extend. More to go surely, in fact I am pretty sure that I will have a white christmas thanks to all the white paint we will use.

Managed to catch some zzzzzz's on Saturday afternoon before setting off to catch Budak Pantai at the esplanade.

It was entertaining but I do find that I had heard the performance before or most of it. It is one of those things that despite hearing for the nth time, the n+1 time will still be funny.

Stopped by the Glutton Bay after that as we are both hungry. And after reading what Mr Brown had said about upgrading, I wasn't too disappointed with some of the food but I did find something that really worth the wait and the hype. And I will actually put that down in the next post.

Sunday was even more gruelling and I was too tired to even fall asleep.

Well, back to work today......

Christmas Gifts

It was a ridiculously busy week, with the painting of the new house, wedding dinners (not mine), meeting to plan for my own wedding dinner and a 2 hour badminton schedule, I still manage to retain my sanity or with most of it intact. More that later, maybe.

(For those below 18, turn back, click on disney or something... go on)

Monday Night and wifey was showing me her gift she had for gift exchange and telling me about the wrappers and how it is not necessary to buy expensive wrappers...

Which trigger a thought in my less than pristine clean mind:

Hey, thats how I see lingerie on m'femme. She wear those to make those concealed treasure more lovely and while the only thing I can think of is how to remove them. While satin and lace is very nice,
even leather will do fine,
full or half cup nevermind.
Thong and G-string are just lines.
All that I have on my mind,
Is to that those damn corset.
gets in the way of mine.

For guys, you as much as I do, probably enjoys unwrapping those presents
But really, what get us going is what lies underneath.

As for the ladies, well, even if you wrap yourself in only a towel or dressed to the ninth.....what your man wants is to get rid of those damn cloths and get into the *ahem* thicks of things.....

And Santa, I had been naughty all years and I decided that as usual, I will buy my own gift and you can take that piece of coal and chuck it up your fat lily white ass...

Your Body Is A Wonderland

Your Body Is A Wonderland By John Mayer

We got the afternoon
You got this room for two
One thing I'll have to do
Discover me
Discovering you

One mile to every inch of
Your skin like porcelain
One pair of candy lips and
Your bubblegum tongue

And if you want love
We'll make it
Swim in a deep sea
Of blankets
Take all your big plans
And break 'em
This is bound to be awhile

Your body is a wonderland
Your body is a wonder (I'll use my hands)
Your body is a wonderland

Something 'bout the way your hair falls in your face
I love the shape you take when crawling towards the pillowcase
You tell me where to go and
Though I might leave to find it
I'll never let your head hit the bed
Without my hand behind it

You want love?
We'll make it
Swim in a deep sea
Of blankets
Take all your big plans
And break 'em
This is bound to be a while

Your body is a wonderland
Your body is a wonder (I'll use my hands)
Your body is a wonderland

Damn baby
You frustrate me
I know you're mine all mine all mine
But you look so good it hurts sometimes

Your body is a wonderland
Your body is a wonder (I'll use my hands)
Your body is a wonderland
Your body is a wonderland

Da da bop ba ba da da
Ba ba bop ba la la la
Ba ba bop ba ba da da
Ba ba bop ba da da da
Ba ba bop ba ba da da
Ba ba bop ba da da da
Ba ba bop ba ba da da
Ba ba bop ba da da da

A weekend spilled over

My groomy Friday night was just a prelude to how the weekend had been.
I was just sitting alone in the room and trying the darnest to level my character in MS. Nope, it was not the smoothest run thanks to a workstation that decided to play random reboot and a server that is always too full. Wifey came home late after her OT and her meeting with some of her friends and let me in on the bad news, I am on my own for the weekend.

Nope, she did not skip town, just that I have to start the painting of the new house all on my own and I wasn;t really thrilled about it.

So, saturday morning came and I started off bright and early. Had some fried carrot cake at the food court in Yew Tee, it wasn't fantastic but it will pass.

Now, for those that had done any painting work will realised that the fun part is really the painting....the crummy part is making sure that the paint lands on where you wants to and not all over the place. Despite the fact that I am only doing the kitchen ceiling and the entire service balcony, it really wasn't any fun. I soon realised that taping stuff could be so tedious. I had also found my lost affinity with the ladder and I probably looks like a hairless ape climbing up and down, taping and painting. Wife came over to join me for lunch and went back home as she has other appt in town. Mother came over and helped out as well.

By the end of it I was tired and not really in a very talkative mode and that I virtually forced myself to bed at about 1 as I had to digest a few thing that doesn't go very well in my mind.

The next day got up bright and early to do even more painting and fortunately, only the storeroom. Wasn't easy when 1 has to climb up and down in a confined space with plenty of shelves.

REalised that this weekend isn;t really my day as I actually left my phone in the new house on Saturday and my sandals decided to separate between the sole and the strap. While ironing, realised that the thermostat decided that the best temperature for an iron is a total melt down..... nearly lost my shirt.

After done with the shirt, went out to catch Zathura, not bad.... its basically Jumaji in Space. Got a new pair of sandals from Hangten as well as a pair of shirt for me and 1 more for wifey.

Followed by a 2hour session of badminton with just the 4 of us and realised that, damn, I need alot of work on my swing and that I am not really getting younger.

Woke up at 7 on monday morning just so that I can everyone that I am on leave to attend a talk in NTUC income. Interesting thing about the enn newsletter and I decided that I might just sign up for it.

Ran some errand for the office to bring a router from the Holding office to our datacenter, caught a bus back and stopped over at Bukit TImah for a quick bite. Nothing fantastic really....

In the mean while, calls from the office seems to be coming in and that i rushed home just before the shit (real) hits the fence. Seems like I can get out of the office but I cannot get out of working, well, all will be normal again tomorrow as I return to the office.....I hope.

Paris Hilton Caught screwing

While it is no big news that our beloved heiress has been caught in compromising situation, the circumstances this time is a bit more out of extraordinary. Ms Hilton was caught on film to be screwing by the poolside in her manor.
“This is utterly scandalous”, said one relative.
“I’ll have none of this in the house,” said the father of our famous heiress.
“And I’ll bet old Conrad is probably turning in his grave,” said the anonymous gardener that provided us this precious footage

Me a Pesto

I had never tasted one before... So, I have no idea

Pesto Pizza

Adventurous and hedonistic.
You live for new experiences and tastes
And you're not the type to have your pizza the same way twice
If they can put it on pizza, you're up for trying it!
