The THING that irks me!

Argh! I am so disappointed with myself for letting another Monday get to me! It was starting out just fine, especially when I got to the office early and was mentally preparing myself for the morning meeting with the bosses. And then my mood changed whenthis persondecides to ditch our shrinking team to take a medical leave. Excuse - migrain. Now instead of having three people in the team, we only have two. So who's going to be doing this person's job and the other two people's jobs today? Just us, of course!! I am sick of this shite. I can't take this irresponsibility and I hate this person for it. I mean, we already know that the other two people are not going to be in the office today for a training! This person should know better. At least try!! I had a terrible migrain last Thursday but by GOD, I came to work - driving a car no less! She has a husband who DRIVES her to and from work. How hard could it be to take a pill and sit in the damn car?! Then if she's RE…

The Prodigal Friend Returns?

After having great starts to the mornings since Monday - I've managed to get to work early this whole week - falling sick yesterday and getting a Medical Cert from the doctor, I am so glad it's finally Friday. For today, I'm determined to leave the office right on the dot so that I can maximise my weekend. For a good reason too. I've a few nice things lined up already - possible birthday present shopping, an afternoon wedding and possible hang out/work with dieselfire. Yes!

But before that I've an issue...

Prodigal Friend tried calling me twice this week. Both times I didn't pick up the phone. As the phone rang and the caller ID blinks back her name, hesitation washed over me. To pick or not to pick? But I decided to just let it be since I've other things to do anyways. So after the second call came in yesterday while I was with the doctor - discussing my swollen tonsil, migrain and potential hypertension - I decided to send her a message. She didn't repl…

I've been bitten!

The shopping bug's got me!! And of all things, I want to shop for make-up. NOOOooo!! Not that I don't enjoy shopping for make-up once in a while but actually wanting to buy heaps of them at one time is madness.
Barbie's turning 50 this year and boy how I wish I was staying in the US or Canada right now because all the pretty merchandises for Barbie's birthday are sold IN the US and 'ship-pable' in the US and Canada only!

Barbie Loves Stila Paint Can 1959 #1 Ponytail DollBarbie Loves Stila Paint Can - 2000 Jewel DollBarbie Loves Stila Talking PalleteAw man... I'm SO in trouble. I know Stila is in Malaysia but I'm not so sure if they'll sell these here or even when they will. And yes, I do have a sister who's residing in Canada now but I wonder what she'll think if I ask her to bring home my Stila Barbie makeup for me (already she thinks I'm a scatterbrain!). Anyhow, I haven't passed by any Stila stands in a while. Perhaps …

Sick is in the air

I'm starting the day dizzy and a little sick today. I might be coming down with the cold. Actually I'd say I do have the cold but since it's worst in the mornings, it could be classified as the sniffles. But this morning, it's something else. I feel sick.

I woke up early as usual this morning to get ready for work but with extra muscle aches and headache. It sometimes happens to me and if it doesn't clear up by a certain time in the day, it could turn into a fever or a terrible migraine. Let's see if it will clear up by lunch time.

Right now, as the the air cond starts whirring on, I'm already cold and shivering as though I've been in the office the whole day. It's probably an after effect of the really hot day yesterday and the extreme cold of the office. Arrghh...

Anyhow, more updates later!

Another for the Wishlist: Wii Fitness Console

So this is not really what I intended to update after my 'outburst' in yesterday's entry but as I was going through some news in the web, since I don't really read the newspapers, I found some people reviewing and commenting on this thingymabob:

Wii Fit - The new age fitness gaming console by Nintendo
Right, so I am sure some of you might be saying, "Where the hell have you been?" but in my defense I'm not a gamer. Haven't been one since I was 11 when the only gaming console I got was the Micro Genius at age 8. And then Sega happened and from then on, I was totally out of touch from the gaming world. That is why I don't get goo-goo, ga-ga over PS2s or 3s or whatever. But it doesn't mean I can't jump on the bandwagon now, right?

So anyways, I looked through at what exactly this Wii thing is all about. Apparently it started out with just the hand-handled remote to play games with. Kinda like virtual reality cause you can play "sports"…

Misery Business

Note: I drafted this entry in Word Document early in the morning at work. Why? Because if I don’t, I feel like I will explode since already I am pushed to the brink. There’s no internet connection (for some reason) at work today so I cannot post this straight in.

Anyways, it’s the first day back at work after yet another three-day weekend. Don’t get me wrong. The weekend was fabulous. I love weekends! It’s always a chance for me to rest and rejuvenate with things I enjoy doing with people I like. Unfortunately, there’s always the after effect of the weekend – WORK.

Yesterday I felt real good. Stayed home for a change instead of going out and just hung out with Buffy watching movie after movie. Then I decided to brave the muck of my extremely neglected dressing table and now have a rather respectable setting (well, better than before). I changed the bed sheets and duvet cover and after a nice cool shower I was ready to hit the sack, except that since being a nocturnal creature is pretty …

Being a Sagittarian

My horoscope, 8th February 2009 from the local newspapers goes like so:

"Sagittarians absorb vibrations and energies that other signs miss. You feel everything good or bad - that happens around. Highly emotional, any unkindness or criticism can truly hurt."

This means, especially when I go out with my friends, all the 'fun' we would have will be laced with a few meanness and at the end of the day, I would be totally burnt and crushed. Boo!

BUT, that's not the end of the horoscope. It continues to go on with...

"Thankfully, here's a week that makes little attempt to dampen your spirit or enthusiasm. If you've had financial concerns, money improves."

Which would probably mean that I will finally get the claim I put in almost a month ago at work. Yayy!! So, I guess it ain't so bad. You've got to take the bad in with the good right. So it's up to us which one do we want to focus our energies on. The...

Life: Do I want or do I need?

Today I was late to work... again! ARGGGhHhh!! I hate this. It's bad enough that I don't have a job I am so crazy about but to have to come in late for it, which means staying back longer than I have to just to cover the time. It's times like these that I just want to quit.

How many times do I have to feel this way? For how long more do I need to endure this?! I am 25 years old and already I'm feeling like a 55-year-old whose had just about enough of working life and is just counting down to retirement. Seriously!! I hate this feeling. Something's wrong with me for feeling so burnt out at such a young age. Is something wrong with me?

It's not that I've run dry on drive and ambition. I just wish I need not spend so much time and energy in the traffic jam every morning! It's like a bloody cattle drive or a race to nowhere just so you'd try to get there in time. Everytime I decide to find a better job, I'd always tell myself that I should get a place…

Coz I'm just a girl, a little ol' me...

I'm writing this entry using my Internet Explorer as opposed to Mozila Firefox. It was such a peculiar thing, but for a moment there, whenever I wanted to log into my Gmail or Blogger through Firefox, it kept typing backwards! For realzz... Like if I wanted to type my name it would appear as 'amizzuriaf'. LOL!! I gave up trying to type in my password backwards so I turned on my IE instead.

Anyways, as I laze around on a Monday afternoon at home, I thought why not put in a bit of a pleasant memory in my blog to make me feel good. I initially wanted to make this post about my plight to revive my social life, but I'll save that for a little later. For now, I just want to show off my little girlie side. Hehe! Ah... to be an excited little girl again.

So recently, I got a really nice surprise present from Pink Star. ILOOVEpresents. Especially those that are wrapped with a ribbon on it, like so. Pink Star's always got such a nice touch when it comes to presents and ribbons…
