Dreamcatcher

NOT by Stephen King.

Filters out the nightmares.



This is the one I hang above my bed. Nice isn't it?

Wonderful

Just great.

They do not need my services anymore.

Starting from 1st August. This is not a good year. I kinda miss my previous Filipino supervisor. He was retrenched. Currently I'm not in a very good position. I'm depressed. I might lose my job. I hate all of them. Bloody hell.

Boo-F**king-Hoo. Whatever. Goddammit.

Appreciation

Hungry?



Many times we bitch about our job, our life, our anything and everything. Life goes on and sometimes what makes life more bearable and interesting are the little satisfactions along the way.

A user today heard that we were too busy and had to skip lunch. So she bought these cakes for our poor hungry selves... Makes us feel all warm inside. ^^




And boy was it delicious! The muffins (are they muffins?) are right out of the oven and the chocolate chips are still runny... Mmmm... And the fruit cake slices... Yummy...



My friend here enjoying his cake!





Once again, THANK YOU VERY MUCH! ^^

Fire! Fire! Fire!

FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!

There was an emergency situation this morning!

We were evacuated out of the building!



We were very fortunate and...



...manage to escape the madness of the crowd...



... to hide somewhere safe. ^^



Zaki and Andy taking a well-deserved break, watching the lemmings gathering outside in the freaking hot sun for the fire drill.

Thank you for smoking!

No wonder about the extinction.

Spotted in Sim Lim Square.




Dinosaur with no respect for the law caught smoking in an air-con building.

Sidenote : Anyone interested in subscribing to mere anarchy? I've just added a Feedburner link to the right.

The "Sian" Song

"I'm so sian..."

What a wonderfully sian song....

Wah lao, an update to my "sian"ness! I feel so sian cos of what happened in my previous post... and suddenly I found this song!

The amazing Mr. Brown and Mr. Miyagi, SG's super blog duo presents their first original single! And it kinda cheered me up a bit.

Link

I salute them! Woo ha!

I've transcribed the lyrics and posted them here. Hope I got the words right!
(I dunno if I'm allowed to do this... Else, lemme know and I'll remove them!)


Brown : You know Ben? I'm sian.
Miyagi : Why are you sian?
Brown : I'll tell you...

I try to cook but got burned by frying pan
MRT go toot toot toot nearly gena my hand
All the girls that I know say only see me as friend
Nah beh lift at my block just break down again

*
I wake up in the morning and I dunno who I am
I'm sian... sian...
I'm not happy I'm not sad but I sure know where I went / I'm at
I'm sian... sian...
I'm just walking down the street and I dunno what to eat
I'm sian... sian...
Every second every minute every hour every day
I'm sian... sian... How did I get so sian?
*

Got job interview but got hole in my pants
Go see show but the fellow in front damn tall cane
My PC gena virus and the toilet flush spoil
My brand new handphone gena drop in cooking oil

(repeat *)

I'm... I'm so frus x 4

Sunny in the morning and it's raining in the night
I'm sian... sian...
The weather cannot change and neither can my life
I'm sian.. sian...
I'm talking to myself cos there's really no one else
I'm sian... sian...
I may think I have a choice but I really have no voice
I'm sian... sian... how did I get so sian?


Yawnz... so sian... I think I'm gonna go take a nap now...

Dammit...

Not in a particularly good mood today.

Renewed my .mac account today and found that the contents in idisk was wiped out the day it expired.



Lost some photos, webpages etc.

Sad day, maybe I won't continue my .mac account after this one.
It's kinda pricey and it's probably not the best service.

Guess it's my fault, sigh, so sian.

Zizou Power!

Wah! That's FIERCE!

Bak Kut Teh

SHIOK AH!

Lunchtime Botak drove me and Ed out for some Bak Kut Teh (Pork Ribs Soup). Seems quite famous and was shown on TV recently.

Spotted this parked at the roadside. They told me this bus ferries the crew around in the makan show.






We didn't bother finding out where they went.







Quite a lot of pple over at the Kopitiam ordering this Bak Kut Teh. Waited and waited and it finally arrives.





Liver (猪干)
Tau Pok (豆卜)
Pork Ribs (肉骨)
Intestines (大肠)
Good Soup (靓汤)

= equals =
Power Bak Kut Teh (肉骨茶)!


Oh, and one little thing.. Do watch out for the chili padi (小辣椒) in your little dish of soy sauce (酱油), IT IS HOT!

Wish you have a good meal too!

So tired...

Zzz...

I'm still stuck in the office.

But with no motivation to do much work.

And behind me, Ed is bitching away about PEBKAC problems.



Just FYI, PEBKAC stands for "Problem Exists Between Keyboard and Chair". That means the dear USER.

Basically, in troubleshooting IT support, a substantial number of users are at fault instead of the hardware or OS or application. Frustrating.
