Lazy Weekend

Boo! on working on Saturday. It really makes me sick working on Saturday! Just imagine coming back to office, Saturday for 8hours of work... whew. This make me think of moving to another company.

Good thing I have donuts to release stress. Krispy Kreme and Donut Factory hahaha; US brand donuts and Asian brand (of course Krispy Kreme is far better than Donut Factory). From Saturday night to Sunday night all I did is to sleep, eat, play WoW and watch movie. After office last Satruday my friend and I watched Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix at Tiong Bahru Mall around 10pm. I like the Harry Potter movie this time 'coz its not that childish compared to the earlier movie series.

Then on Sunday, I met my friends for lunch at CPK along Orchard road and watched Live Free or Die Hard 4.0 at GV Grand around 10pm as well. This weekend work really made me sick! Good thing the movies also help me release the stress.

Dinner Dinner Dinner + Tourist Trap

July 6 (Friday). My best friend Herbert and his girlfriend Chisse went here for tourist vacation. I invited them for a dinner at Clark Quay, I booked a dinner at Jumbo around 9.40pm. After office I went to Clarke Quay to wait for them. They arrived in the area on time and we ordered: chilli crab, black pepper crab, jelly fish, mee goreng, fried prawn with cereals, rice and steamed buns to dip in chilli crab. We finished eating around 11.20pm (gees that was long). Then we walked towards the Central Mall and even told them that the trees with lights there were copied form Shinjuku street in Japan. Then we had green tea (macha) ice cream at Hokkaido ice cream store while watching people doing reverse bungee jump on the other side of the river. Moving along and since they have still around 20mins before MRT closes I tour them inside Clarke Quay bars and shops where I usually hangout: The Clinic, MOS, Moroccan lounge, Hooters, etc... Then I send them off to MRT. After I arrive home of course I check first auction house of WOW before I slept.

Saturday. I have to come to the office (fuck!). I was disappointed on how my boss manage resources. I don't have anything to do much not until 4pm in the afternoon. The task was initially assigned to other person who took leave and was transferred to my other colleague. Around 4pm he cannot resolve the issue on his IDE and my boss assigned the task to me. But prior to that I already told my boss at the beginning of the week that I have an appointment on Saturday and that I will leave office around 3-3.30 initially and was moved to 5pm because of the task. But wait.... he haggle if I can go by 5.30. I was totally disappointed on how he manages resources.

Anyhow I went to see my friends (Singaporean group with French, US and Brazilian) at Harbor Front on time for our Cheng-Ho Singapore Harbor Cruise. We had dinner 'international buffet' in the cruise. I call this 'TOURIST TRAP'. Why? because they serve not good food at all, and the
waitress are so dumb! Imagine my one of my friend ordered vodka cranberry and the waitress gave him vodka can berry (the waitress could have given him a gasoline rather... lolz :P. Totally not good at all for S$55 what do we get in the end? A post card not even postage free. Anyway... after the dinner we went to Vivo Mall to grab some beers and had chit chat. We finished around 11pm.

Sunday. Since I left the office early yesterday, I have to come drop by in the office for the critical issue. But I did not stay long just fixed the XSL file and left the office. I workout at paragon and meet Filipino colleagues before at CrimsonLogic who I invited to play WOW too. We ate at Jologs food outlet in Lucky Plaza (hehehe). At night we just played WOW.

Where is Orchard Road???

June 30, 2007. Its been two days that I am having sorethroat. I said to myself that, this time around I will not let the day passed without consulting a doctor. After 9am in the morning, I head out of the road to flag a cab. I told driver to drop me off at Paragon shopping centre along Orchard road (for my check-up). The driver nodded and that if I can direct him how to go there. I was so surprised that I asked him... "What? you don't know where Orchard is?", and he replied "just tell me where to go lah!, I don't go to the place often". I said okay... (noob cabbie). I was also surprised when my bill was only S$2.60. He might forgotten to start the metre when I hopped in.

It was around 9.30 am when I arrived at the Medical Associates Centre at
6/F Paragon. Only to find out that they open 9am but doctors comes at 10.45am. So instead of wasting time waiting I just went to Din Tau Fong for breakfast.
