the office.

Just a few photos of my office! It's a small, cozy little office. Love the decor.

Pretty right?

Good night.


hopes of brighter days.

It's exasperating how the weekends fleet! I spent the entire weekend at home. Surprisingly, I spent a lot of time watching TV. I'm usually slumped in front of my laptop but ever since I started working, I'm using my laptop less frequently. In fact, I didn't switch my laptop on this whole week until Friday. That's a first for me.

Work's been.... challenging. I'm struggling to stay on top of everything now that Lia's left. There are just so many things to learn and it's just really daunting being under the watchful eye of my boss, and having to perform up to her expectations. She threw a bitch fit on Thursday. Don't want to get into the details of that but I'll tell you this much... It wasn't pretty. It was definitely not a good week for me.

I just hope this coming week is better. If things don't go well, I always have my impending pay check to cheer me up. I'm already making mental shopping lists.

Have a great week ahead now.

Talk soon.

I had the kinda day that just puts a smile on my face even after it's long over. I needed this after a tiring week at work. Headed to Shafizan's place to visit him cos he had a minor tonsils operation. Poor dude has to be on a liquid diet for at least a week. Spent some time there before heading over to the Osena Headquarters. Had a mini gathering at my grandma's place to welcome the brand new addition to the Osena family. Alif! I swear, he's such a sweetheart of a cat. My heart melts just looking into his big innocent eyes. I want a cat too! My mom's colleague has a 'garfield' cat she wants to give away and my mom is in for it, BUT my dad is so against the idea! He's such a killjoy!

Anyways, here are a few photos of Alif for you to squeal at. He'll steal your heart too.

The flash from the camera makes him look scary, but isn't he a beauty?

Talk soon.

I really ought to sleep now. I'm surprised I haven't lost consciousness since that always happens to me during the first week of work after a long hiatus. I literally black out in the midst of watching tv or when I'm on my lappie, and the next thing I know it's three in the morning and I'm still wearing the make-up and clothes I wore to work. It usually sends me into a fit of exasperation.

So anyways, work's been great so far. Just because I foresee myself mentioning these people quite frequently in my future posts, Irene Gomez is my boss and Lia is my only other colleague. Both of them are pretty damn cool by the way. Lia's going to leave next week because she's going to pursue her Master's but thankfully she'll be coming in to the office on a part-time basis so I don't get too lonely. She's been so helpful and I'm just really grateful I can take her lead because when she initially joined the company, she didn't have anyone to guide her step by step. The office is so damn pretty. I'll try to take photos when I'm alone in the office and post them soon.

I really need sleep now before I crash and burn while blogging.

Talk soon.

sunday blues.

I'm having the Sunday blues. You know the dreadful feeling that starts in the pit of your stomach and works its way all over as dusk falls? I can't believe I'm starting work tomorrow. I mean I'm supposed to be excited but I feel nothing but dread right now. This is so not cool. I haven't even started my job and I'm already feeling like crap. I reckon it's just one of those 'summer's over' moods. No more late nights. No more late night korean! THE HORROR! No more late night phone conversations (marni and shanthi, take note). I need to get my messed up sleeping pattern back on track. The first week's gonna be tough. I foresee massive headaches, raccoon eyes, and i-hate-work mental tantrums.

Keeping my fingers crossed for Spain! 

Have a lovely week now.

break the typical.

I just got back home from a wedding. Same old, same old. I was telling my brother that in my twenty-three years of existence, the one thing that has remained passe is an indian muslim wedding. Which makes me come to a deduction that perhaps it's because a majority of indian muslims just simply revel in the past. I would want my wedding to be a novelty. I'll totally break the typical.

Massive headache. I think it's definitely the Davidoff perfume that's causing it. All three instances I've used it, I ended up with a pounding head. That can't be a coincidence.

Enjoy whatever's left of the weekend.


hey saturday.

joseph gordon-levitt: a little scruff won't hurt.

chanel is LOVE.

These are three pieces I love from the spring/summer 2010 collection.

And then there is the unsurpassed classic. My life would be complete with this. I can't wait to get my hands on it (after many grueling months of saving)!


mindless ramble (more to come).

I fell asleep while watching korean last night and woke up with twenty-hours-old make up on my face. Yuck. I need to start treating my skin better.

So yesterday Shangz and Shanthi came over to my place to hang out. We kinda had a mini soiree. Fun! Although the whole point of the meet up was to stuff our faces with decadent food, I hardly did. I have the most irritating appetite that starts acting up way past the acceptable time for food ingestion! So anyways, we huddled together and screamed ourselves silly watching part two of 'REC', which might I add, is a really good sequel. I think it has to be one of the freakiest shows I've watched. I ended up going to be bed parched last night because I was too afraid to make a trip down to my kitchen. I kept seeing flashes of raging flesh eating freaks in my head. So not cool.

Remember Ricky Martin's once upon a time WC theme song that goes like ... 'Here we go! Ale! Ale! Ale! Go! Go! Go! Ale! Ale! Ale!'? It keeps playing in my head (thanks to Marni). I've decided to support Spain in the finals. Not that I've ever been into soccer but c'mon, it's the World Cup (although it really is quite inconsequential in my life)! I don't want to be such a wet blanket, and besides, how cute is Torres! Oh and also because I think I belong in Spain (haha just cos i love to annoy Aishah)!

I'm basking in my last three days of bumping around. Starting Monday, I'm officially an employee of Corporate Media Services. I'm really excited! The job scope encompasses the kinda things I enjoy; writing and events management to name a few. I'm going to go in with an open mind and learn as much as I can. I know that every job has some sort of drudgery attached to it (i learned that not every thing is hunky dory in the working world while interning); as long as I keep it together I know I'll be alright.

Happy TGIF!


PS: Take notes on blogging Marni! Relinquish the morbid blogger in you. Hate me. :)

Okay so here I am again with yet another blog. It was kind of an impulsive decision. I'm not feeling any blogger remorse. Yet. Haha. I can't even remember how many blogs I've abandoned in the past, so I'm going to work extra hard trying to update this regularly. I guess I've always enjoyed writing and I actually miss it quite a bit. And I also think it's a great way to brush up on my writing skills as I'd be doing a lot of that in my new job (wish me luck on keeping it!).

So anyways, this is going to be MY little space where I'll be talking/ranting/bitching/lamenting/expressing/gushing/(you get the drift) about just anything.

I'm going to try and fix up my blog a little bit now.

Talk soon. :)
