- 1-5 Dec - Working my butt off to clear outstanding 2006 accounts for 31 Dec deadline.
- 6-12 Dec - On leave for exam.
- 16 Dec - Friend's Wedding dinner (She is one of my best net friend & blog pal. I may be requested to help her in the morning too.)
- 18 Dec - Should be taking leave, my birthday. My mum will be celebrating for me. She has made it a point to celebrate each family member's birthday this year.
Therefore, I am looking at Dec 22 2007 as a better date. We can celebrate Christmas too, besides the birthdays.
I wonder if anyone has objections to the idea?

We tried out the new fusion resturant which Elaine recommended at Citylink Mall. It is located at the escalator going towards Suntec City & One Raffles Link.
I was very impressed with the seating plan. It was very comfortable with all the sofa seating arrangements. Peggy & Elaine was fascinated by the 3 dolls located at the outside of the resturant.
I must say that the food was okay. I had the salmon bento set. I was equally impressed with the laksa as well, which Elaine ordered.
We chatted and ate for about 2 hrs before calling it a night.

After working till mid afternoon, I managed to clear what I set out to clear at work today, (which is a good sign, as my next weekend is burned due to weekend lectures with my lecturers. I have taken leave next Monday to recharge & relax myself). I started my journey to go to the housewarming.
I was quite surprised to see cousin in law, ZW having so many relatives and they actually helped the couple out by doing the agar-agar, fry the chicken wings, do some deserts, help to get more ice cubes when it ran out. The family bond is so strong that we feel so ashamed of ourselves.
We ate, chatted & toured the house, a 2 storey Executive Maisionette, just like mine.The couple actually spent a large sum of money, I guess, as they hacked off the study room, balcony & store room at the lower floor and made the living room & kitchen bigger. They hacked off the master bedroom & transformed it into a library cum relaxation corner, leaving only 2 rooms on the upper floor. I heard that they got the flat at $280K, which was half the price that my parents paid for 8 years ago. The only drawback was the place was pretty inaccessible as you need to take a feeder bus to Boon Lay Interchange to get to town.
I would like to thank Cousin QL for giving me a ride back home.

Set in Baltimore during the 1960s dance TV craze, a zaftig high school hair hopper, Tracy Turnblad, graduates from outsider to celebrity trendsetter and along the way she stars on "The Corny Collins Show," wins the heart of resident hunk Link Larkin and kicks down the barriers for black and white integration on local television.
I went to watch this movie with Stella yesterday. I must say I enjoyed the movie, especially the music & dance. I must say that the movie has helped me to feel relaxed about the stressful work that I have been facing for the past few weeks.
Managed to find out that Cathay online booking system does not factor in the UOB Credit Card discount nowadays, unlike last time. Looks like it is going to be worthwhile to purchase the tickets on the spot if you wish to catch a movie.
This movie taught me about society intergration of races & how to accept people who are different, like handsome, ugly, fat & thin. I feel that some of the things shared in there happens to me sometimes.
I would give this movie 4 out of 5 stars for the good music, good dancing & good storyline.

According to my mum, who checked with the staff nurse, Jason is not undergoing any therapy treatment for the time being, but undergoing Chinese Accpunture treatment on a twice per week basis. According to auntie, the fees for the accupunture treatment is about $200 per week.
My mum & I are thinking to start a fund raising activity to help his family pay a part for the treatment. For those people who wishes to chip in to the fund, please feel free to contact me. We are looking at any amount on a monthly basis as we know everyone has his or her own family & commitments to look after as well.

- Being "tekan" by officer, meaning bullied by the army officer that led him to do such an act.
- This guy is mentally unstable. He is not suited for NS in the first place.
Now we know that the guy left the camp with the rifle as he broke up with his girlfriend. I think it appears that the guy seems very possessive, according to newspaper reports.
I just feel that the guy should have just let go about the BGR, as he is still so young, what's there to worry about not having a girlfriend?
Do show your support for them, ok?

I was invited by Rebec mei to join her for the above performace today. Actually it is an open rehearsal @ the Esplande. We were joined by Rebec's colleague and her colleague's hubby.
Besides watching the orchestra rehearsing for the performance, we also got a chance to see the behind the scenes work of the performers, such as why this part of the performance was not well done. It was an eye opener for me, and considering that I decided to give myself a break from work today as I have been back at work for the past two weekends. As usual, work can't be finished, but I am not a robot, I need a break. I enjoyed the open rehearsal very much. Thanks Rebec mei for helping me to destress.
After that, I went to Tampines Mall for a walk while waiting for mum to accompany her to SSA at Tampines St 92 for chanting session. During my walk there, I met by an office neighbour. We chatted a lot as we had not met each other for a few months already. He is willing to help me get out of the difficuities in the job that I am facing now. I told him I will do the next step and see how we go from there.
Was served by a good bunch of people at Delifrance Tampines Mall for my lunch. I wrote them very nice comments on the card as they were really attentive to such details like:-
- My knife accidentally dropped on the floor. The waiter got me a new knife without me having to ask.
- The ice-cream I ordered had whip cream but the branch had ran out the whip cream. The waitress took the trouble to highlight to me and asked if I mind politely.
Got my new GV movie club membership card yesterday. The card is so unique. It looks like a pack of French fries to me!!!
