A miracle occured today!

I have come to terms with lost memories of happy occurances in my life for a while now, especially when my laptop of 7 years crashed one fine day, erasing just about EVERYTHING in it's memory bank. Thankfully, I managed to salvage some data that were saved in the C drive after sending my computer for repair is ComDoc. Otherwise, I lost it all - my photos from my trip to Perth in 2008, photos of friend's weddings, birthdays, Uni days, my MUSIC! Gosh... it was heartbreaking.

But for some reason, I told myself it was a blessing in disguise so that I won't be forever mulled by the past and to start making new memories. That was when I bought an external hardisk that's big enough to store all my crap in. I mean come on, pendrives are just TOO small at times and not to mention that it sometimes goes totally bonkers after a while.

After that was invested, I started transferring just about everything I had into my external hardisk and was oh so happy to have ample space to muck around with. My work could be dumped in there and my personal life also has a spot in there.

So for a few months, I was over the moon. I helped Buffy with her wedding plans and reacquiring playlists, etc. all using my trusty external hardisk.

Or so I thought...

Then, one day some time this year as I was busy busying myself at work, I decided to browse through my photos. At the point I had some good things happening outside of work that just makes me want visual reminiscence whenever I was down at work. All of a sudden the words "Folder is empty" popped up. And this is a folder which I open daily! Now where the heck did the contents go?! I was pretty sure I didn't click "delete".

I was in tears by the end of the hour. I couldn't believe my eyes and no matter how many time I unplugged and replugged it back it, it still would show "Folder is empty". It really WAS empty. Like poof, and it was gone. Just GONE!

Oh, the heartache. My all the good things that happened throughout the past year... vanished into thin air! I even asked Alphatin and Jasper to check it out for me and even they couldn't figure it out. It truly was mind boggling. Yet again, I had to rebuild my memories. I still had some photos that were in my camera which I saved in a different folder but I lost quite substantially nonetheless.

But today... something happened. The photos in that "empty" folder reappeared! I could've easily whooped for joy had I not been in the office when I discovered it. WAHOOOO!!!!

Look, look, look!! =>>

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…

Getting out of Blogging Retirement - Take 1

Hello Blogosphere!!
It is I, back from an unintended retirement from the blogging world. Actually, I never did intend to hang my blogging shoes as I did my dancing shoes. But after what seems like (a) lack of time due to work, and (b) lack of inspiration to write about things without sounding like I'm whining (phew... that was a long one), I decided that after a year of hiatus, it is high time to put some thoughts to ... what do you call this?... not paper... blank blog page? Well just type out some thoughts.
So here we go. 
Starting now.
Right. Now.
Ok. Any moment now. .

. . . .
Maybe I need to eat first. Haha!
