Hahahaha…good news! Good news! I’m a confirmed staff already! No more probation! CONFIRMED…yes! Went back to office yesterday to get the “big envelope” from the boss. Thought just need to meet the boss for the performance review, hahaha…mana tahu, received the good news. I was actually still under probation until mid of February, but the boss gave me an early confirmation. So as at 1st Jan 2006, I’m a confirmed staff already…yahoo!

Holiday mode

2 comments

Seems like everyone is getting less "productive" in blogging lately including myself. There is nothing much I can write lately. Nothing really special happened lately. What can I talk about today? Hmm...*thinking**thinking**thinking*...talking about my jobs? Neh...not much interesting topics to talk about. My life? I already mentioned in my previous blog that I-am-a-boring-person. So, there's nothing much to talk about as well. Hmmm...oh yes, lets talk about the coming CNY.
It's 20th today, that means the CNY is only 8 days away. Oh time really flies. Still remember 3 weeks back, we were all celebrating the New Year on the 1st January and soon we will be celebrating CNY which is just around the corner. Just like the chinese's saying..."a blink of eye" and it's CNY already.
There will be some slight changes in this CNY. I was still a student till last year, and I'm a career gal now. A career gal, you know! So what's the big deal for being a career gal? Sigh...how I wish I could turn back time and I will always be a student. Life being a career gal is not as good as imagine. My dad used to give me money to buy my new year clothes every year until last year. And the best part was the money will be kept on increasing every year. How good is that, isn't it? Being a career gal meaning that you have to give money to your parents instead of your parents giving you money. I did not have to think about this all these while but not for this year...sigh. I've been working for 5 months already, but all these while I had not been bringing any money home...sigh, a useless daughter. I have been saving the money and I'm planning to give my parents a big "ang pow"...hahaha...try to imagine, if I were to give them money every month, lets say RM100 per person per month. It's not that nice to see right? But if I were to give them a lump sum of money, lets say RM500 per person for this CNY, isn't it looks nicer? With a little bit of accounting knowledge left, I think this way is better. At least, my mum will be proud to tell her friends that "my daughter gave me Rm500 for CNY..."...hahaha...silly me!
The meaning of CNY is changing as my age increases. When I was young, CNY to me was "ang pow", "ang pow" and "ang pow", nothing else except "ang pow"...oh yeah, of course not to forget new clothes and firecrackers. For now, CNY is more than that...it's about family reunion. Since I had left home to further my studies 6 years ago, CNY is the only time where my whole family sits together to have dinner. My brother used to work in Singapore and he only came home during CNY. So, I really appreciate this period of the year. Now my brother is back to Ipoh but my sister and I are working in KL and both of us hardly go back to Ipoh nowadays. We make it a must to go home for CNY even we have to stuck in the jam for many hours. My family is getting bigger and bigger. For the last CNY, I have a sister-in-law and for this year I have a niece who is already 4 months old now. The house is getting crowded but I'm feeling very excited about it. Can wait for the CNY to come! Counting down now...

Leo Ku + Miriam Yeung Concert

2 comments

Leo Ku and Miriam Yeung are back to Malaysia to have their joint concert on the 25th Feb 2006 in Putra Indoor Stadium, Bukit Jalil. Still remember that LKC and I went to Leo Ku’s concert in Arena of Stars, Genting Highlands on the 3rd of September 2005. In less than 6 months, he is back for another concert. Miriam Yeung was in Malaysia for a concert also last year, but I did not manage to go. Hmm…guess this joint concert will be one of the most happening concerts in 2006. I, guess 80%, will be going to this concert. Anyone interested in going to this concert? Oh gosh, too much of entertainment will make Lisan a step nearer to becoming a bankruptcy…sigh. Money...money...money...why is it so important in our life?
Money = Entertainment = Life
X Money = X Entertainment = X Life = Boring!

I-am-a-boring-person

2 comments

I was having lunch with Fei Yee (as usual) and Judy just now. Judy was saying that she feels sleepy after lunch. So do I. But Fei Yee suddenly came out a point saying that if she were allowed to surf the net whole day (during working hours, of course), she won't feel sleepy at all. So I asked her a question, what's so nice? I can surf the net whole day, but there isn't any nice websites for me to surf. I still feel sleepy. So, now I'm back from lunch. I was too free. I actually tried to find out what are the websites that I will always go when I'm connected to the Internet. What are the screens that I'll look at everyday. And I actually found out that I'm a quite routine kinda person.
Here are some of the screenshots that I'll look at in normal working days...
Morning...when I arrive in F&N
Telnet to the servers and do df -g (Unix command) to check the filesystem of the servers in F&N
Connect to MSN to check out who is online
Login to SAP system of F&N and perform my daily tasks
Xandria remote monitoring, one of the screen that I have to monitor frequently.
While working and "curi tulang" at the same time, I'll surf the net...these are the sites that I'll surf everyday.
www.thestar.com.my - Need to find out what's going on in the nation, ok?
Check company emails. Very hardly receive emails, the emails that I receive in this accounts are mostly from my LKC. This is one of the way we communicate with each other during working hours. What to do, he can't use MSN, so have to use emails to "chat" with him.

http://www.gmail.com/ - After checking "company mails", it's time to check for my personal emails.
Sap Service Marketplace - this is one of the place where I'll refer to when I encounter any problems regarding SAP or when I'm too free and want to find something to read.
www.friendster.com - who doesn't login to friendster nowadays?
www.blogger.com - how can you see this blog if I don't login to this site?
After working, when I am at home...
http://plusbb.com/discuz/index.php - This is where I download the TVB dramas and latest album...shhh...it's illegal.
BitComet - this is the program that I'm using to download the dramas and music.
Oh gosh...now only I realized that I'm such a routine kinda person. Oh yeah...not to forget...I do visit some friends' blogs, but there are quite a number of it, very lazy to do the screenshots... hehehe...

What Age Do You Act?

2 comments

You Are 20 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

Back to work

I'm back to work after a long weekend "holiday". Been on MC since Thursday and only back to work on Wednesday. Cool huh? It was a bit hard for me to get up this morning. Been sleeping late and getting up late for the past few days. Things seem to be a bit different today. Got a new colleague today. I do not know how long she will be in F&N. Does this mean I will be transferred to some other projects? Hmmm...no idea. And the worst bad was I don't have my own desk anymore...sigh. I have to share the desk with another 2 "strangers". That's the worst part for being placed at customer's site. No fixed desks for us. Got to move here and there. Sigh.
I'm feeling very sleepy now. Used to take afternoon nap at this time for the past few days. 3 and a half hours more to go before I call it a day at work. Anythings for me to do? Any nice websites to surf? Oooohhh...so sleepy...*yawning*...ZZzzz

Home Sweet Home!

2 comments

"There is no place like home".

This is the best phrase to describe how I am feeling now. I'm back to Ipoh since Thursday. You must be thinking...Thursday?? Not need to work meh?? Yes, that's right. NO NEED TO WORK. Nahh...not because I'm being fired or holiday or whatsoever of reasons. It's just that I'm on MC leave. You must be thinking again...This Lisan must be cheating for MC again. Ahem...I need to clarify this...I ain't lazy, I ain't cheating for MC. I was forced to go on MC..."thanks" to the Project Manager. I "was" and actually "am" still having flu, cough and sore throat. To be honest, I was fit for work but with just some coughing once in a few minutes. No big deal right? But "thanks" to the "kiasi"ness (afraid of dying, in case you don't understand Hokkien) of the PM, he forced me to go on MC...worrying that I will spread the germs to him. Oh gosh...are you that weak? In a sense, it was good to go on MC as who doesn't like holidays? Right? But in another sense, I felt bad also as I already on-leave for the past few days due to my sickness. But I couldn't do anything since he called to the HR and informed them that I was "really" sick. So, I just followed as what he said. Went to a medical centre in Tmn Tun...OMG, for the first time in my life, I paid RM89 for the consultation and medicines....soooo expensive. But luckily, can claim the company...hehehe.

CNY is coming...that means it's the time for me to do something to my hair. For the past few years, I straightened my hair and trimmed a bit here and there. So as this year...straightened my hair but with one exceptional. Not just trimmed, but cut my fringe. Have a look at my latest hairstyle and give an opinion. I feel that I look quite fat in the photo. Do I?

Feel like blogging, but just don't know what to blog. Nothing much special happened for the past few days. Life goes on as usual. Oh yeah...something interesting happened to me. Got my December pay slip today...guess what...I received bonus! Unbelievable. Although it's not much, not even 1 month bonus...but quite satisfied. Can't believe that they gave me bonus this year. I have only worked for less than 5 months and I'm still under probation. Not bad huh...work harder for the coming quarter review. Hopefully I can get at least 1 month bonus for this coming March review. Gam ba teh!
