For some reason, something always dies (in the data center) when I slack off and leave early.
This is probably my first Christmas which I didn't end up flying back home to spend with my parents. It felt kinda weird actually. But my friends and my cousin here kept things busy.
We started Christmas Eve celebrations at a one of Pete's friend's place. But I was all doped up on Panadol, I spent most of my time talk to people but not really hearing what they were saying. I wonder if anyone else there actually knew what I was talking about - because I didn't.
Note to myself: You cannot cure a hangover with another hangover.
When they started the 'Ghost Story' telling part (when people try to out-do one another with scarier tales one after another). I wanted to leave already. Everytime someone starts telling ghost stories, it makes me think back to my childhood. Yes, I've had encounters. Although I'm not totally sure, I would like to think there is a medical explaination for everything I felt. But as much as I hated it, I can still remember how until the age of 14, I would never take a shower unless someone else was sitting in the bathroom with me and talking to me the whole time, or the reason behind why I still leave the lights on when I sleep.
Maybe one day I will tell my own ghost story encounter ... but not now.
Something else that was different was that I actually ended up cooking on Christmas day. We ended up with 8 people at our place, but I think I might have cooked enough for 12 people. It was kind of a last minute thing, so we had to grab whatever was available from the chinese shops (the only shops which were open), and cook whatever was left in my pantry and refrigerator. We ended up with BBQ Whole Fish, BBQ chicken wings, roasted veggies, pasta, fresh prawns and salmon sashimi.
We spent the whole of Boxing day just recovering from the night before, and trying to finish off all the leftovers. We managed to finish all the pasta, but I think it will take me another week to polish off the prawns. (Pete is allergic to them).
Oh... and I realised that Fashion magazines are evil. While I was waiting for my turn on the Wii, I picked up a magazine and started flipping through the pages.. which left me with totally new shopping list. Must.Find.Earrings.Shoes.. Must.Buy.. !!

Well... really no need to drool anymore... because I've got one !!
Probably the only downside to this product is that the connection cables are a bit short (distance between TV and sofa). But it is incredibly simple to use. I guess all we need to do now is go out to buy the perfect arm chair for our iCush. (I use the word 'our' is because it was originally intended to be for Pete's christmas pressent).

I already knew what this would lead to. Directions.
I told her I knew only a bit .. (i den den.... I replied in my bad chinese).
Then with a relieved look on her face, she asked me if I knew where the supreme courts were. (or atleast thats what I think she asked).
I then tried to explain to her that she had to walk past this traffic light, to the next traffic light then turn left, walk past another two buildings then it would be on your right -- all in mandarin chinese. (to my dear friends out there who personally know me and are laughing right now ... Don't.)
I think I did ok with my broken-mandarin-mixed-with-a-bit-of-cantonese giving those directions. Atleast she was heading in the right direction when I left her.
Kind of reminds me of the times when I was in Singapore, and for some reason I would always have old ladies coming up to me and asking me for directions in Hokkien.... Yes ... Hokkien.
Or the numerous amounts of time when I was in Hong Kong and I would have Aunties and Grandmas coming up to me to ask for directions in MTR stations.
I can't even read the chinese words on the MTR station maps. And no, I don't know Hokkien. (Swear words don't count right !?)
By the way, 'traffic lights' in Mandarin Chinese is supposed to sound similar to 'traffic lights' in Cantonese Chinese ... right ?

For the past two weeks, I've been feeding my WoW addiction through a dialup internet connection.
I don't actually know what is worse.. Not being able to play WoW at all.... Or playing WoW on a painstakingly slow dialup connection and lag like mad.
But anyway, I'm glad its finally over.
I rushed home yesterday after work to setup my new router... only to realise when I logged into WoW that all the realms were offline.
Tuesday = Maintenance Day
Arggh ! Damn ! Need.. to.. wait.. one.. more.. day.... Must.. do.. battle.... Get.. more.. hk.... Must.. get.. GM.. gear...... Arggh !

-- Proof that he isn't spending all his spare time playing PS2.--
All the washing ?! (I asked)
All the clothes and dishes... and they are all dried as well (came the reply.. and continues to play on PS2)
I eyed the pile of clothes on the sofa. I supposed I should do the folding...
That was until I saw my white silk top, Cue pants and other woolen tops which now resembled something along the lines of a withered branch or the output from a meat processor.
"You do know that some clothes cannot be put in the dryer... right !?" (I picked up my now shriveled white top). "See the tag.. it says 'Do Not Tumble Dry'... !"
"Is it ? I thought you always just put the clothes in the dryer"
"Then why do we have clothes hanger on the balcony ?????????"
"Oh..... sorry" (continues to play PS2)
Seriously, sometimes I feel like I'm dealing with a 5 year old.... must.calm.down.must.calm.down.must.calm.down.must.calm.down.must.calm.down.must.calm.down.must.calm.down.must.calm.down.must.calm.down.must.calm.down.

And should our hands get too sore from all that Wii-remote swinging action. We'll just take out a deck of cards and play some poker instead. Yet no game is fun without some kind of wager, so to try to keep track with our newly found healthy lifestyle, we settled with using water instead of alcohol.
Instead of topping up the bowl with alcohol everytime someone wants to increase the bet, we topped it up with water instead.
After skulling 3 bowls (filled to the rim) of water, my body started to complain.
All I can say is by the end of the night, I had to frequent the toilet atleast 3-4 times - and I was one of the lucky few which didn't actually lose that many times.
Funny how I can last up to 1/2 dozen of beer without needing to go to the toilet and still feel great, but can't do the same with water.
Atleast I can say I've made my quota of drinking 8 glasses of water a day. But if we ever decide to play with water again, I rather volunteer to go out and pickup a carton of beer instead.

He told me to buy a particular share at 23c. (It was at 24c when I wanted to submit my offer, and it had already dropped 0.005 for the day). So I thought I'll put it in at 22c - hoping it would drop a bit more. My semi-full-time-share-trading friend told me this one was set to double - within the month.
So I put in my offer at 22c yesterday and waited for it to drop.
23c..... 22.5c....... BUT NO 22c ~~~~~~~~~!
ARghghhhghhghh...... I just checked the price of it 5 minutes ago..and it was at 26.5c ~!
(Even bigger ARghghhhghhghh...........)
Me and my stingy fingers... :(

Before I knew it, I was unloading all the current problems in my relationship and disclosing all details to my grandma. Shock horror
And when I did eventually finish, my grandma gave me only one advice - which left me slightly speechless.
"Give yourself a deadline.. 2 months.. 3 months, and if things don't change - leave him."
(My grandma can sound really fierce sometimes).
Then she proceeded to explain to me how it would do me no good wasting my time on any guy. And according to her, I've already wasted enough time. Apparently she was 24 when my mum was born and that was already considered to be late.
Although its hard to imagine it now, but I know that my grandma was once a young girl too. She has definitely 'been there and done that'. Maybe its time I do decide to take some of her advice in to consideration. 'Cos I for one don't really know what to do anymore...

I spent the first few days devouring through all the movies and TVB series I had previously copied off my friends. The contents of my 250g hdd didn't last very long. Then I realised that one of my neighbours didn't know how to secure his wireless internet connection. Joy ! When I discovered that, I felt like I had just discovered my bank account suddenly had three extra zeros at the end of my statement. (I need three extra zeros to turn the amount in my account to an amount I would be able to use - or withdraw).
It was also that night I realised that my neighbour secured his wireless connection by turning off his modem. The connection was only available after 6pm (when he\she got home) and was disconnected by 10pm (when he\she went to bed). 4 hours is not enough to warcraft. And 10pm is definately not the time I go to bed. I never thought I stoop so low that I would be leeching someone else's Internet connection just to play Warcraft. Sigh
Unarguably the most primative and the most secure method ever. Sigh
On the bright side, I've started cooking again. On Monday I made pan-grilled chicken breasts (wrapped in bacon & cream cheese) with dijon mustard sauce and did a creamy carbonara pasta was the left overs last night. Got to go think about what I want to cook tonight now.

- Why do the guards of the train insist on closing the door on you, even though they can see you clearly run for the doors ? This isn't Singapore or Hong Kong you know. The next train does not come in 4 minutes. In fact, it would be amazing if the next train came within 10 minutes (and this is in peak times).
- Why do women have to do their makeup in the train ? And take up atleast two seats with their makeup bag and 'other' bags. And even if you stand right up to them, they refuse to move their bags to one side (to make room), and continue to do their makeup as if you were transparent. This is a train.. not your room !!!
- The support poles on trains are supposed to be shared. Everyone in their vicinity should be able to get one hand to it. Unfortunately, I couldn't this morning, because some idiot was leaning all over it. I really want to slap him and tell him that... One - You're not a pole dancer... and Two - It's NOT your pole !!
- Why does the train when stopping at Central station need to stay there for a total of 5 mins !? There obviously was no one getting off and no one getting on either. Nothing can be more fustrating than a train that is not going anywhere.
- If Airconditioning in trains isn't recognised as a necessity, then some other kinds of ventilation really should be employed. A combination of a hot day, packed train and no ventilation really doesn't smell that good.
- Ipods. I use my one too. But if I can still hear the music from another Ipod when I'm listening to mine - then somethings not quite right. If you really want to blast your music and blow out your ear drums then do it at a place where you can use speakers.
- Getting off trains. If you are standing in the doorway, move out then after everyone has gotten off, move back in. Simple. Don't make the people getting off the train have to squeeze past you and jump over your sports bag at the same time.
- On this matter of convenience, if a senior citizen or mother with a pram gets on. Give them your seat. They need it more than you. I'm sure we've all heard about this little etiquette rule before.
- Sharing the train with noisy teenage highschool kids who are on their way to school is still acceptable. But I''m sure the rest of the train passengers were not one bit amused by the talks on which guys are considered to be hot in school - or for that matter 'who has been doing who' and 'who is good\bad'. Are highschool kids supposed to have a sex life !?
- Oh... and to that woman who was talking ever so indiscreetly on the phone... I really don't want to know what you got up to last night !
And all this from one train ride this morning.

However, not without doing some thorough testing by myself first.
I'm in I.T. as well. I know how long it would take if I would have to do all these tests again when on the phone to another tech support person. I would have to go away, do the tests, and then call them back. The additional time wasted by being on hold everytime I would have to call back really doesn't appeal to me
I found the existing connections to the World of Warcraft (WoW) servers from my laptop though a Netstat (command to show connections on all ports). And then I did Tracerts (tracing the connection from source to destination), to those ip addresses. And lo and behold, I found that on the 7th hop it would time out and show me an * on 3 outta 5 tests. The other times it would have a lag time of about ~300ms.
Hop 7 had an alias of Sydney.Telstra.net... which really does seem a bit suss.... I mean if it had died at something.us.net then I might be barking up the wrong tree in thinking that the issue was with my ISP and not with another external source.
Just to make sure, I even went a step further to isolate the ISP from my WoW game play. I took my laptop to a friend's house which I knew was using a different ISP to me.
It was wonderful. No lag. My latency bar was green and not red. I even managed to squeeze in two games of AV before going back home to call the tech support line.
The first call I made, the guy asked if I had problems with the Internet in general, to which I replied 'No', then he asked if I had issues recieving emails, to which I also replied 'No'. When I told him what was my exact problem, he said in terms of their policy, its not something they look after.
I told him the main purpose of me getting ADSL was to enjoy playing WoW on their fast internet connection. Something I wasn't getting anymore. After debating for a bit more, I asked to speak to someone else who could understand a tracert (this guy had no idea), I was put on hold for a further 20 mins. By the time I managed to talk to a 3rd person (the 2nd guy didn't know what WoW was), my cordless phone ran out of batttery.
I had no choice but to call back on my mobile (yes.. costly I know). 15 minutes more, and I've had just about enough. By this time I had made it to their level two tech (or so I was told), he advised that there wasn't anything he could do for me, but I could try send ing through all the outputs from the tests I had done and construct my case in an email and mail it to them.
Why couldn't they tell me this 1++ hr ago ?!??!?!
For that matter, after hearing me blabble on for an hour... couldn't they lodge a case for me !?
I.T. support personnel are supposed to be 'Helpful'. (I try to be helpful to my users and clients). This however, was anything but that.
3 days later I called again to check on the status of my case. Apparently nothing else had been done to it. I asked to be put through to the sales department. But they couldn't transfer me through, and asked me to call the sales number directly myself.
Once through to the sales department, I requested for my Internet to be disconnected. When asked for a reason why, I simply told them I've had enough their crappy tech support. The 'disconnection' call took about 5 minutes. But I had lost count of the amount of calls I had made to the tech support people, and the amount of time wasted trying to troubleshoot their problem for them.
Damn, I can feel the value of my telstra shares dropping already.
So thats it folks. Until my application with iinet gets completed, I'll wont be able to post as often as I would want to. Fingers X that I'll get my new internet connection sooner rather than later!

Somehow he managed to find a nice cosy spot on the supposed 2nd level of the model.. he looked so cute hiding in there I couldn't resist not taking out my camera phone to snap up some quick shots.
This is Pete's model from his design of a 5 lvl apartment. (although with some parts chewed off).
Probably should try and put him on a diet. His favorite past-time used to be crawling underneath our couch and nibbling and scratching the pieces of corrugated cardboard we put there for him. He used to be able to stay there for hours, until we lured him out with a carrot. Now he struggles to get his bum through the gap between the couch and the floor.

Alpha Bravo Charlie Delta.... etc
(*They use this in an attempt to make ourselves clearer over the phone when trying to convey server names or directories).
Which is all fine, except I don't know it.
So on a typical day when I pick up a request call over the phone, I will hear this guy starting off by saying... "User is somehow getting denied access to November, Sierra, Alpha, Uniform, Victor, Charlie ..... ". While I am on the other end trying to frantically write down what he is referring to by decoding his words. Sierra caught me a couple of times, for some reason, I thought Sierra started with a 'C'.
It kinda feels like I'm working in a airport control radio tower... :P
Previously when I've tried to spell out stuff over the phone, I just say something along the lines of "M for Monica, P for Peter, J for Jeremy, B for Boy, U for Umbrella....". It seemed so much easier when I was just using my friend's names and throwing in the occasional 'B for Boy'. But now, the people around me doesn't seem to understand if I say 'P for Peter' instead of just 'Papa'.
But as they say, When in Rome, do as the Romans do. So if you would excuse me for now, I've got to go and learn some alphabets.

And how do I know he climbed into bed at 3am ? Because I woke up.... and I stayed up.
I feel like a walking zombie at the moment. Severely lacking in sleep.. and just generally tired.
Tired at the whole 'I'm-so-enjoying-my-life-just-bumming-around' fiasco. For the past week he has gone to play golf, basketball, soccer, a weekend out with the boys and spent all his other spare time continuing his never-ending sessions on the PS2.
I don't mind the sports or the outings with the boys. Its something I actually encourage.. because it gives me time to do my own things as well. But the bumming around on his PS2... that really gets to me...especially since it means he is just at home sitting around playing games and not helping out with things at home.
Ok.. he is on holidays. But atleast have the decency to help out with the chores at home. None. All that greeted me when I got home was a bed piled up with unfolded clothes - albeit washed ones. No prizes for guessing who folded them.
Is it really that hard for boys to become men ?! Or is that just an illusion ? and that boys will never become men... ?
Just a touch of maturity and responsibility.. or is that too much to ask ?

17 Nov 2006 ??????????
Today is the 19th ~~!!!! I'VE BEEN MUNCHING ON OVERDUE CHIPS THE WHOLE MORNING ?!?!?!
Worse thing is I got it from my company's vending machine ! OMG.. How long have I been munching on expired goods from there?!
Grrrr... I probably still would have eaten it ... afterall its only really two days overdue (and I was extremely hungry). Btw...Does that mean its been sitting in that vending machine for over a year ?! I mean they can't possibly be loading the vending machines up with expired goods !? I feel like the time when I was eating this piece of bread which turned out to be all green and furry on the other 'un-buttered' side.
But all the other junk food I've been eating from there...ahhh... Don't even want to think about it anymore.. :(

Or should I rephrase that ?
Why isit that men always think they know the right way... alway think that they are a professional car driver (and\or racer)... and are always right ?!

The house specialty is only available from 'blue to medium-rare'... So its either oozing with blood or just slightly on the red side.. red not pink. I normally go for medium-rare anyway, so its fine for me.
Overall 8.5/10 .. but so far its the best I've had in Sydney. We'll probably go try the GPO place next, but this is one place I will definitely go back to.

I was probably the first one to get off work, so I went to met up with MC at her hotel room and tried to decide where to go and have dinner while waiting for the rest to arrive. MC suggested that if everyone was too tired, we could just order from the restaurant downstairs. I didn't mind, afterall I still haven't managed to try out the restaurant ever since Hilton reopened in Sydney. She threw me the menu from her room and asked me to flip through it while we waited for everyone else.
And I saw this....
Lasagne - classic - lots of meat and tomatoes -- $30.00
-served with leaf salad and bread
Vegetable fried rice with fried egg and chicken satay -- $34.00
Lasagne for $30 ?!?! More importantly ... $34 for a Nasi Goreng !?
"I think we should go out and find some place to eat... I don't think we should eat at a place which sells Nasi Goreng for $34"
Fooked if I'm going to pay $34 for a Nasi Goreng
Ok, I know its the norm for Hotels to charge ridiculous prices for their food, but $34 for what is essentially just Fried Rice ?! Does traditional Nasi Goreng even come with Chicken Satay ?!
We ended up getting take away from a Ramen noodle place downstairs instead and bringing it back up to the hotel room. Which turned out quite nice, as we could all just lounge around on the king size hotel bed, as we updated each other about our current endeavors, our current bf's long and shortcomings and generally just talked about anything else under the sky.
If only I didn't have to work the next day, I would have raided her mini bar and switched to a much more 'interesting' cable channel.
Well.. what do you expect when you put a bunch of highschool girls together ?!

I luv my Crocs !!!
Although after today I realised there is a slight drawback with wearing my Crocs to work - even on a casual Friday. From my walk to the train station, the whole train trip (peak hour traffic), the walk to my office, into my building to the lift to my floor, I felt that everyone I walked passed would look atleast once at my feet. Actually, I didn't feel it. I saw it. Everyone that was in a visual vicinity of where I was, was staring at my feet.

Last week we went to the Sofitel Wentworth which had the 'Chocolate Assiette' on offer.
Chocolate assiette - a delicious tasting plate consisting of white chocolate crème brulee, Valrhona bitter chocolate parfait and praline and a berry & milk chocolate terrine, with Brown Brothers Botrytis Reisling
Sounds good ?
Well... It looks good too... :p~

Yes, I've peed in a pool before. (Hasn't everyone ?!) The toilet is always situated too far away from the pool anyway.

I guess since I'm leaving this place now, my manager has assigned all the boring tasks to me that no one else wants to do.
There isn't really anything wrong with that. Apart from the fact I have to come into work this weekend, and I have to deal with the one bad aspect of a data center.
Its blarrddyy freezing !
I've got 30 mins left before I have to go back in to kick off the next stage of the installation.
30 mins left to de-frost my butt.....
Where's a bum warmer when you need one ?!?

I still have 4 weeks left at my current job, but I already know I will deeply miss everyone here.
After my manager announced my resignation, my Inbox was bombarded with emails from my colleagues. The head of Trading even asked my manager that if it was about money, then maybe Trading can do something about keeping me here.
But its not about the money. The new job I am taking on, is one which I hope would help me path the way to achieving my goals. Or to put it simply, what I would want to be doing in the next 5 years.
And for me, 5 years is my set target timeframe at the moment. Because if I'm not 'successful' (in my terms) in the next 5 years then I might as well stop trying and just settle down with a husband and start popping out the kids.
Anyway, it is nice to know that I have made a difference in my current company.

I haven't been back to Melbourne since setting foot in Sydney. The only thing I really remember is the weird weather. But since it was spring, and Sydney was hitting 34°, I decided to pack light, and bring only one spare top and shorts I can sleep in for the night.
Melbourne had a high of 14° that day. By night time I was freezing my butt off.
Talking about chocolate.....
my lunch @ Max Brenner.. oh and i had a thick hot chocolate to go with it as well.
I only just managed to finish the waffles by myself. And after finishing the hot chocolate, I felt like going back to the hotel to sleep it off. Bad thing was that when I glanced around at the other tables next to me, I could see a table of 3 sharing the same waffle I had by myself. Felt like such a pig.
An hour later, my drinking buddy and our other friends called me to let me know the reception was finished, and that they would be heading over to Koko Black for drinks. Koko Black, turned out to be another Chocolate Bar \ Cafe.
3/4 of the tasting plate @ Koko Black - I already started eating b4 I remembered to take a photo
I shared the tasting plate with my friend which included another hot chocolate. I wasn't disappointed though, the hot chocolate was very good, but because it was so rich (and I was already up to my neck in chocolate), I only manage to finish half of it.
I was so completely stuffed with chocolate that I managed to skip dinner, and still felt quite full when I went out for drinks that night.

I feel like I've just had my brain taken out and grilled for an hour, X-Rayed and put back inside.
I've already made up my mind that this is the job I want. Although I wont really be getting a pay increase (unlike the other two).. I would have a chance to work with real technical guru guys.
Now all I have to do is wait for the magic phone call.... (Fingers X)

But since I've already downloaded the photos from my phone, I might as well just post it.
Oh...For those who may have watched the Fox Sports channel (and ended up seeing last years game instead), the Eagles won by 1 point. Apparently only the free-to-air channels had exclusive rights to the Grand Final broadcast, so the people who had Fox Sports, somehow ended up watching a replay of last years game instead.
Anyway, here are some photos taken with my SE K800i at Telstra Stadium on the night of the Sydney Swans Vs Fremantle Dockers game.
we were sitting right behind the goals. premium firing-line seats.
I spent half the time trying to avoid having the football torpedoed at my head
the game wasn't as interesting as I thought it would be. without the commentators, this is what I saw majority of the time. at these times, I just focused on that little screen on the right hand side
With an attendance of about 50,000 people, lets just say the vast majority of them were Sydney Swan supporters. We were literally flooded by a sea of red. The reception wasn't any better when the dockers lost and we were stuck with the crowd on the way back home in a train. Actually, I can't really imagine what it would have been like on the way back if the Dockers had won.
I couldn't resist not taking this shot. So cute !!

Is it only considered to be cheating when you have physically cheated on your other half ?
Or the moment you fall for another person when still engaged in another relationship ?
Don't get me wrong, I don't believe there is anything wrong with looking at and admiring attractive people. If I couldn't, then there would be no purpose for me to go and watch movies anymore.
But where do you draw the line ?
Could you accept that your other half will flirt with other people he occasionally meets at pubs and clubs. Or vice versa ?
