Crossing my fingers in a knot!

I hope I'm not jinxing anything right now. One of the companies I've applied to have responded and has told me to take an online assessment test. When I looked at the website given, I noticed it as one of those psychometric tests, which I've taken back when I joined HLA. It was quite gruelling since it had mathematics in them! I took the test and even fell sick afterwards. I remembered because I had to ask my mom to tell Christmas' mother I was sick and couldn't get to the temp job I had with her. But I somehow managed to pass it that time. Apparently, anyone who fails it wouldn't be considered for the position even if you aced the interview or other tests they had.

So anyways, this test... I didn't dare take the actual one just yet because a) I'm at work and b) I can't concentrate - too much distraction! So I decided to do the trial test to "prepare" myself for what's to come. Initially it was just to see if it was a similar testing system as in HLA and when I confirmed it, I tried doing the test. Not a good idea. Especially when you are at work doing a time test with heaps of words and maths, plus people 'bothering' you! I know, clever of me to even attempt it, right?

Well, no surprise that I flunked the test. But at least that was the trial test. Now, I'd focus my energy to panic over the actual test, which I would have to complete by tonight. EEeep! GOD help me...

It seemed so easy and the arithmetics actually had a lot of graphs and charts, etc. So it should have been a snap! But yeah, I'm not the most agile minded person when it comes to answering anything related to maths. What happened to me was I a) panicked and b) was distracted by other people. That's why it wasn't the smartest thing for me to do. Heh!

I just hope that when I do do the actual test tonight at home, I would be calm, quick and precise so that I won't embarrass myself too much. Eeep!

Life After... Pt 1

Call it a wake-up call. Call it an epiphany. Call it therapy. Call it what you will. But as I was wallowing in my sorrows as 1st November 2017 began, and knowing that in 24 days I was going to meet my 34th birthday without my beloved Dad for the very first time, I thought to myself that I need to do this for my own healing.
Yes, I lost my Dad this year. He left to be with Allah at exactly half of this year, on 16th June 2017. When 2017 started I honestly thought it would be a great year. I went on my solo trip, I was on probation for a promotion at work, I was going to the gym, my family was in good health, everyone was happy. It was a great start of the year.
Then like the 2004 Tsunami, my whole world and life unexpectedly came tumbling upside down and inside out. All of a sudden my family had crises. *Note the plural form of the word "crisis"* And it started on a rather fine day on 28th April.
I was on edge that day as I did my colleague's wedding makeup. Part of me screa…

The Time I was Flying Blue with KLM

About two months ago I came back from a magnificent travel experience to the UK and Paris. I fully intend to write all about it as it was my very first solo trip ever! But this post is not about that per se. I plan to break down the solo trip experience so that it will not be too heavy in one posting. 
Anyway, I just wanted to share a little bit about my experience travelling for the first time with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as they were my chosen carrier to take me on this wonderful journey. 
From the get go, I would say it was not exactly all smooth flowing. My own unfamiliarity and inexperience with them probably contributed to the little bumps along the way but thankfully their customer service team is well trained and equipped to help iron out any hurdles or uncertainties that I faced. 
The booking was unique in its own right. The selection of flight dates, times and class was all standard. Then when it came to payment was when I discovered the first uniqueness, or rather the second …

Getting out of Blogging Retirement - Take 2

I've already had some food in my system, and while it's probably on its way to full digestion now, let's try putting in a half decent blog post.

Like I said, after a long, I believe 2-year hiatus from blogging, I had really thought I would let blogging die a natural death and stop just like that. But as things occur in my life, I find myself itching to write again.
Like today. 
First, during lunch time. 
One of my colleagues, let's call her Kay, told us that Hard Rock Cafe has a pretty good lunch set menu. It comes with a salad, main course and dessert, and a refillable drink for the price of a normal main course. So of course we jumped to it. The moment we got to HRC, it was almost a full house! We were lucky not to have to wait in a queue. Those people probably thought to take advantage of the lunch set too. 
Anyway, there were four main courses offered in the lunch set menu; Chicken Marinara, Chicken Pasta, Hamburger and Grilled Fish. I opted for the Chicken Marina…
