Was having my Wan Tan noodle this noon when the same tissue-seller lady appear in Hong Lim. Yesterday noon she refuse to budge when i said NO to her and she just stood at our table, beggin and beggin and touching my wallet. She was filled with black dirt, her T-shirt was completely covered with muck, and she stenched badly.
And so today the same scenario , I held my breathe when she stood at our table, beggin and refusing to move another step unless we buy some tissues from her. And she moved on after we continuously shouted “no” in mandarin.
That reminds me that the other day, I took an old man’s cab and it was the 2nd time i sat in his cab. He went like a tortoise, couldn’t speak and i suspected he was suffering from Parkinson…Disease ..
Yup no doubt i knew of his sickness but it was terribly slow and unsure of his route.. and i grew so impatient when the others horn at him that I shouted at him and ask him to hurry! He went like two lanes in one and at all turns, the cab would stall in the middle! I sweared I wasn’t to get into his cab the 3 time!
and it might seemed uncouth of me to get impatient and disguisted with these poor old humans, but somehow i know inside it ain’t much their fault.. after I looked back. It ain’t their fault to want to be like that too…gosh
The atmostphere in the office is totally crazy and relaxx. Everyone’s shouting across the board like there’s no government. We thought its “holiday” is it?
Even the big boss went into the relazz mode and was in a ready partying mood. I guess he is trying to bring UP everyone’s mood to the theme tomorrow night!
My personal meeting with Jean Marc this year was a brief short mere 5 exact minutes only. No complains No displeasure over me being “re-structured”.
So simple was this once-a-year process… some plans were made for me in 2007…. “silence”..
I had 15 balls of Wan Tan, Yummy 1level Hong Lim. Delicious and satisfying. I fell into the hungry craze really, craving for food and gobbling down chunks of junks in my body. What happen to the diet conscious me? Think its time for a discipline period before I grow into a chubby oversize sotong.
Me and Jenvine are such kiddies in the office. In our bordem or busy-ness, regarless the timing,
Our hands will reach out to the phone and dial each other’s extension, hang and dial each other extension and hang.
At least 6 times in a row. Recently the game is, how quickly can each of us do the hanging, preferably in a second or so…
Ring Hang Ring Hang Ring Hang Ring Hang Ring Hang
That was how we started our this Thursday Morning….
Here is today’s heartfelt blessing:
“Truths For Living:
The more generous we are, the more joyous we become.
The more cooperative we are, the more valuable we become.
The more enthusiastic we are, the more productive we become.
The more serving we are, the more prosperous we become.
The more outgoing we are, the more helpful we become.
The more curious we are, the more creative we become.
The more patient we are, the more understanding we become.
The more persistent we are, the more successful we become.”
~ William Arthur Ward, U.S. college administrator, 1921-1994
And the more determined we are to live up to our full potential, the closer to doing so we become.
