A peaceful sunday PM...

[CuRRent MooD:] Ok

[CuRRent Song:] DJ Jason Chow - The Masterplate Mighty Mix Volume One

[Last FooD/BeveRage:] None

I think I must be mad.

Thursday I'm down with near-flu symptoms, friday I played Maple till 5am to sat morning, then went market wif mum and rested a while after that, then after some time I went out again. And guess what, I tried to be superman again - I went MU at night till 2am I went home...3am reached home, den maple till 5+, den rest a while, come to work!

I think I'm crazy.

Anyway, after these few chionging sessions between Paradigm and MU, I could identify my kakis. Paradigm is obvious, Dan the man and gang but for MU, my bro needs the music to bring him some mood for techno (since RnB is his speciality), same for Jiangyue. So who left for me to bring mood in? I have MingDe and Vivian. Both of them are regular saturday MU goers, and though MingDe don't really dance a lot, I enjoy Vivian's company. Not that she dances great or what, but she can certainly bring a good mood in as she can dance to any music in MU. Of course, she is rather selective on which songs will bring her mood in, and she uses similar style in RnB (only switching bpm slower), but all and all she's a good chiong kaki. Mingde's lucky to have such a chiong kaki and I'm also happy to know such a kaki too.

Yesterday while we were on way back, I was wondering something and I asked my bro, "Sometimes I really wonder what the lives of such MU pple are like. You know, their real lives outside MU." To me, I've only seen Mingde once outside in Marina Square with his gf (I heard they broke up) and as for Vivian, she remains a mystery. Oh well, I guess it's good not to be too nosy sometimes. Why people go chiong is to enjoy, and sometimes to escape or deviate from their actual lives. Few of the pple I knew from MU just got arrested and come to think, isn't ignorance a bliss sometimes?

I've tuned down my gaming in SG and turned to Maple. Yeah Maple. Can't imagine? Well I'm only helping my bro's character - I don't have one myself. Don't forget I'm still paying for SG, which now I should maybe wonder if I still should do so.

Another thing to plan now is whether to get my new PC next month, or maybe even planning a phone should the bluetooth dongle be out. If the latter comes true, I might consider that option and even forgo my iPod Nano - I'll sell it.

Oh well...hehe. Whatever.

Super super tired...

[CuRRent MooD:] Tired

[CuRRent Song:] None

[Last FooD/BeveRage:] Cheesecake / Milo

This whole week had been super tired, and I know I'm not spared in these 4 days before the weekend. Nowadays it's just wishing the weekdays pass super fast and weekends stay as long as they want...but what to do, there's just 24 hours a day and that's good enough.

Of cos, it was certainly my fault to have stayed up all night last Friday by going to Paradigm and MU, then after that directly back to GSK to report for PM. The power part is when I went back home I just went on to do my own things till about 5pm I went out again. I rested early on saturday - something which I wouldn't imagine myself to do but had no choice since I'm extremely exhausted. Sunday woke up to find Sunshine and then went market with mum to buy stuff, went back home a while and watched Anime with bro, den went out wif Sunshine and walked around.

My reason for staying up on Friday? To relieve those stupid amount of stress accrued from my work. My legs were really tired over the weekend, but I kinda enjoyed myself.

Coming weekend, I should be planning for sports rather than anything else. I think I should come up with some kind of regime. LOL.

Tired tired...zzz

More and more shit

[CuRRent MooD:] Tired but still awake

[CuRRent Song:] E-Type - Dans La Fantasie

[Last FooD/BeveRage:] Chicken Chop + BBQ Chicken Wing / Teh Peng

I tell you all hor, GSK only comes with more and more shit, more and more nonsense, and lesser reasons for us to stay on.

Workload getting more and more, pay also dun add on with OT, you can still grit through, complain and not do much about it - but can you imagine if your privilege gets taken away? Ok, we accept the fact we don't get the $1 discount that their staff gets in lunch time, fine I'm ok with it. We just got updated that we MAY lose our privilege to get those free soft drinks from dispensers (meanwhile we cannot just openly take the drinks - SUCKS) and you know what's next? To be NOT ABLE TO EAT IN THEIR CAFETERIA!!! What's next, cannot buy their products from there as well??? WTF!!! Do you know by doing this, they are further cutting down our efficiency? Imagine scenario we need walk in and out GSK to makan, and during lunch time they will not be able to locate us AT ALL. This might sound like a good thing, but in the long run it's everyone suffering without even looking deep into it. From what I know, nearest eating place is like 5-10 mins walk from GSK, worse than the distance over at Quality Road to nearest makan place. THIS IS GETTING FUCKING RIDICULOUS. They think GSK in Orchard Road issit? It's at TUAS, MIND YOU!!! (ok, outside Tuas)

Phew. A load off. I can't imagine if GSK's big pple decide to say "HP Outsource cannot take food and drinks from cafeteria" - I believe we have reasons to protest. On another front, as what my "old" colleague says, "at most we spend longer time outside, they also cannot say anything, also cannot locate us, cannot ask us to faster come back!" - which is true, but this is really a stupid thing. When this happens, we will start lunch @ 11:30am and be back GSK @ 1:30pm. They cannot blame us - it's their own demise. Fuck those other contractors lah, I know everyone "should be fair, should be equal" but look, we are employed to directly assist a department, we are more like "contract-ed staff of GSK" rather that contractor, from my opinion. We sit in and out office, work with users closely, administer servers, troubleshoot stuff - and tell us like dis. I know other contractors will have their own versions, but remember - we are being taken away our privilege, while they don't have any in the first place. It's worse to have something and taken away rather than not having it at all in the first place, especially if you are talking about privileges. I look forward the day they took away the privilege and me submitting my resignation, reason being "GSK is getting ridiculous. No point staying on and wasting time, wasting effort and gets almost no appreciation".

Ok lah...dun complain so much le...Sunshine already listen too much le...

Tired stupid week?

[CuRRent MooD:] Tired

[CuRRent Song:] None

[Last FooD/BeveRage:] Milo

Nothing much to do, trying to relax a little, now trying some LAN pts to work. Need to prepare dis and dat, certainly a tired week and weeks ahead won't be much different.

My ears are ok now, but I've spent like $350 on medical bills and these bills cannot even be reimbursed or subsidised in any way. This is just so plain sucky.

I noe I've not been blogging for like a week or so...well, just feeling tired and busy and stuff. Anyway, for a "record" I've won $36 so far from World Cup - lucky me! Well maybe dat to make up for the medical bills.

Oh well when have time...
