You're not crazy, you just make everyone crazy.

You are deeply stressed at work when :-

1. you start throwing crumpled papers at your colleagues without warning.

2. you slide your chair when your colleague passes by your desk to block his way.

3. you laugh and laugh eventhough you have tons of work that seem impossible to be completed.

4. you call your colleague using other people's name.

5. you call your colleague for no reason and when he answers you back, you say "nothing. for fun."

6. you start having dirty chit-chat with your colleague about other co-workers and make fun of it eventhough you know the instant messaging is being monitored by the management.

7. you go for a team dinner with all your colleagues and you intentionally leave out your boss but somehow you ask him, "do you know where are they going for the dinner?"

8. your desk is full of white papers containing your urgent tasks to be completed and all you can think is, "paper wastage".

9. you talk your own mothertongue when you're dealing with non-local colleagues just because you feel tired talking in English.

10. you remember more of their tasks assigned instead of their names when you look at their faces.

11. you freak out whenever one of your colleagues gets up from his desk, praying hard he is not coming over to your place asking for assistance.

12. you are still in the office eventhough the aircond has been shut down without you noticing it.

13. you flirt because you need some kind of motivation.

14. you will think they are crazy if they walk off from the office before 7.

Those are what happened to me and my team over the last few weeks..

And let me show you some of other people who have the same degree of insanity as mine and how they deal with it.

Anyway, today I am lucky to receive :-

1. Ang pow.
2. Chinese New Year cookies.
3. Chocolate cake.

Now who wants to buy Yee Sang for me?

Don't save me. I'm too tangled.

My office is full of oranges.

My team received a big box of oranges from our vendors' company. Our GM gave each of us two oranges along with Ang Pow. A few of my officemates dropped by at my desk asking me to finish their oranges, including the ones in the picture above (thanks LC for the drawing). But among all the oranges, the one I appreciated the most is from someone I can't mention in English. Haha. It was the first orange I got and I haven't eaten it yet.

Now I have five more oranges to finish. I am trying my best.

After all the busy days, I finally get the chance to reduce the stress and burden that have been piling up on my shoulders during this Chinese New Year holidays.

Yes, it's been really stressful. With people chasing you every minute, calling up your name here and there, nearly 20 people instant-messaging you each day asking for assistance until at one time I had to unable my IM, and your mailbox keeps getting bombed due to exceeded quota. And sometimes, people had to queue and take turns just to see me.

I am not a help desk. I am a system developer.

But don't get me wrong. I am not saying I do not like my work. Eventhough sometimes people can be really disturbing.. but they do not annoy me. They work professionally and they are being friendly. I am stressed, but I still laugh with them. They do things the right way. Plus, my officemates are from everywhere.. China, India, Philippines, Singapore, UK.. etc. Half of them are not Malaysians. And Malay are just a few. Each team will have like one or two Malays only. Mamat Hindustan bersepah wei.. macam drama Bollywood bila diorang berborak. Oh nehi.. Kuch kuch hota hai~

All my friends are busy making plans to get married. Yah, I realized it's about time for me to think about it. But I feel like I love my work more than my personal love story. I'm not saying that I don't want to get married. I want to be in love but I haven't found the right man.

And yeah, I don't feel like discussing this kind of topic nowadays.

Gong Xi Fa Cai, everyone.

Sometimes it's not right to do what's right.

on Hiatus mode.

I don't know when I'll be back, but I'll try my best to update this blog once I get my life back.

Nu Yer!


Nah, I'm fine.

I really don't know whether I am being workaholic or my job forces me to abandon my true life I used to have.

I lost a friend. I missed a few. I missed lots of fun things. I barely had chances to meet my family. And I forgot how good my bed at my hometown really feels. In fact, I'm having problems to get up late. By early morning, I am already awake.

Today, I was supposed to go to the office for Disaster Recovery support at 12 noon. But I woke up before my alarm screamed which was at 7.15am. So I dressed up, pretty nice today (since I am heading straight to Cheras for a wedding reception afterwards) and went to the office at 8.45am.

Yesterday, someone tried to make me stay in the office until 4pm today. If I am really a pure workaholic, I wouldn't say no, would I? Or else, my parents would be frustrated since they're already here. Ready to pick me up by 12.

Okay, I have 2 minutes. I better make my move.

Yeeehuu.. I'm getting my life back. Eventho for this weekend only. Yeep~

Happy New Year anyone.

Don't forget to make new resolutions, cause surely you'll forget to accomplish them sooner or later.

My resolutions of the year :- Change blogskin and make Adam Sevani as my soulmate.

p/s : it's funny how from the simple things, the best things begin..

p/s: Sorry, what are my resolutions again?
