New found love + hate !!??


I found new love recently and that is on photography. Ok, not really new love. I love photography since...who cares, but I've just been using a compact digital camera all these years. Most of the time, I was not satisfied with the photos that I took. I've been admiring photos which were captured by using a DSLR camera and I always wanted to buy one. Been thinking for quite sometime until few weeks ago, I made up my mind to buy Nikon D60. The main reason I bought this DSLR camera was for my holidays in year 2009. I always want to take nice photos of the places/ countries that I visit. Because this is the only way that I get to recall how these places look like as I try not to go to the same countries that I have been to before (well, exceptional for Australia. LKC never been to Australia before).
Well, my photos are not ready to show to the world yet as my photography skill is still suck. Some "lucky" ones got to see it and they commented that "it is good for a beginner". Really thanks for the compliment!! Apart from that, I'm also very lazy to transfer the photos to my laptop. Wait till the memory card gets full...hehehe. 4GB of memory I got, so much space to save. I need to have more outings to brush up my photography skill, be it on day time or night time.


On the other note, I have not been enjoying my work recently. The main reason is because of the festive season. Oh so many holidays in the month of December cum clearing off annual leave. I'm not in the mood of working!! Shhh...hopefully none from the managerial level is reading this, else my year-end bonus will be "tung kor sui".
I need to have a working week like this:-
Monday - 1st half working from home, 2nd half on-leave
Tuesday - Emergency leave
Wednesday - supposed to work on the 7am shift, but only got up at 6.45am. So working from home for whole day until 3.30pm
Thursday - On sick leave
Friday - Maybe will go to office or work from home/ maybe on 2nd day sick leave
Isn't this the greatest working week? Some of you might know who I'm refering to. I'm not complaining...I'm just jealous. LKC told me I can choose to be like this, but I'm a coward. I'm not that brave as I know I'm not an important person in the company. I still need my salary to pay for my own living expense. My boss can give me a warning letter or worse, a termination letter at anytime if I have this kind of attitude.
I tried to perform well in work. I tried to be helpful to everyone. I tried to put my best effort in work. I tried to be co-operative with everyone. There was one time, I got an email saying that I have attitude problem. I was totally speechless. The hardwork that I put for the past one year was effortless. For a small issue that I didn't want to take the responsibility, I received a complain that I have attitude problem.
I tried to be co-operative for one of the project that I undertake as I was playing one of the major role. They relied heavily on me. If I'm not free on that particular week, the whole project will get delayed. I told them to find someone to mirror me on the things that I did, but no one listened to me. It's really demotivating when the opinions that you voiced out were not accepted. I tried to play some politic game here but I'm not sure how much I can succeed on this game. Lets see how it progress. OMG...I'm revealing too much. Can someone please suggest to blogger to have protected post like WordPress?


Going to SPCA tomorrow, hopefully we manage to find a puppy/ canine that we like there. Bro wants to adopt a Rottweiler to jaga the rumah. While I always want a golden retriever or a Yorkshire Terrier. Last time, I always wanted to buy a puppy from the pet shop. But after visiting the SPCA website, I changed my mind. "Why buy when you can adopt?"...I totally agree to this. Anyway, lets see what we can get from there tomorrow.

I'm totally speechless when it comes to ... sigh. Things don't seem like working out the way I wish, I hope or I want recently.There seems to be hiccups on everything that I do. How!!??

P/s: I hate kiasu people...they will never succeed in their life. Now I know why he's still unmarried at the age of errr...late 30s? Aiya, who cares. So many what if questions in his mind.
What if my wife cannot get pregnant? I have to get a doctor to verify that she is healthy enough.
What is my wife cheat on me? I have to get her to sign a letter in front of a lawyer that she will never cheat on me.
What if my wife die first? I have to let the God knows that she cannot die first.
What if this? What if that?
How to do big business like that?

Random thoughts


I guess my LKC will login to my Gmail and unsubscribe the AirAsia newsletter for me very soon. I received the AirAsia newsletter on 500000 Free Seat (No Fuel Surcharge) yesterday and was checking on the AirAsia website again. Yes...again. You see, it's so tempting. Previously, they only gave out free tickets. This time they are giving out free tickets cum free fuel surcharge, meaning you will only require to pay for the airport tax and administration fee wow wow.
I was just checking for fun and found out that return flight to Bangkok only costs RM145. cheap and so tempting!! How I wish I can be a full-time traveller and enjoying all these benefits from AirAsia.
LKC was so lovely. He asked me to take a year off to travel around and he will financially support me with the condition that I have to do some part-time jobs in between. How I wish I could say 'Great, I'll tender my resignation tomorrow!' and go to the airport and pay for the next available flight and fly myself off to the destination. How cool is that!!
BUT, can I be so carefree? Or better term, can I choose to be carefree? Sometimes I wonder, from where do those backpackers/ travellers got their money. Like Nicolekiss, I have been following her blog for quite sometime and she has been travelling to different countries for the past 1 year. I'm really curious where does she get the money from. Anyone has any idea?

"Money not enough!"
"Annual leave not enough....hahaha!"

p/s: I'm just too "boh liau"...just blabbing for fun. Waiting for LKC to come down to KLCC now. Going to take some nice shots of KLCC with my newly bought Nikon D60. So excited about it. Waiting for the sky to turn dark now.

i *heart* Air Asia and i *heart* my LKC even more


I will be going to the land down under (i.e. Australia) in the next August. Still a long way to go though, but I'm very excited about it. It has been almost 4 years now and I miss Australia so much. Thanks a lot to Air Asia X for giving out the free tickets. Yes, it's gonna be a long hour flight from KL to Melbourne and it's gonna be killing flying on Air Asia X, but who cares. I save my money on the flight tickets, spend on the accommodation, transports, food, souvenirs, tours and etc. Will be going there for 2 weeks and trying to cover 3 cities, Melbourne, Sydney and Gold Coast. Hopefully the exchange rate drops below RM2 for AU$1 or at least maintain today's rate, which is RM2.40 for AU$1 next year.
I *heart* Air Asia for giving out free tickets. It' gonna be a holiday year for 2009. Will be going to Krabi in April for 4 days and Australia in August for 2 weeks. Yeah! Thanks a lot to my dearest LKC for sponsoring all the trips. It's time to work harder now...opps, I mean it's time for LKC to work harder now...hehehe. I'm looking forward to year 2009!
