Something to Look Forward To

It's been so long I've ever got the time to blog about anything at all. Work had been really piling up on me literally till the extent I could no longer have much time to do anything else but crash at home later day of the evening to take my own personal time to do practically nothing at all. I don't even have much time to play the games that I would usually play... how sad such kind of life is huh?

Since I took over P Project from a colleague who had resigned, I've been getting phone calls ever more frequent compared to my daily life. Heck I even might get more phone calls coming in to me than I would normally received for a month! Just like yesterday, Just on incoming calls only I had like 81 calls already excluding the calls I have to make for this P Project.

So as you might be able to imagine, my life is basically havoc right now. I'm so nervous to the extent of even having to force myself to check office emails from time to time from home; just to make sure there's if there's any urgent mails that require my attention, I'll be able to attend to it.

Teluk Batik Beach - Sitiawan

Oh don't let me bore you with my work and all. I am finally going to take a short weekend trip back to Sitiawan with a few friends of mine. Finally, the sea side, the sea food, the slower pace of life... God I'd give anything to have such life. comfortable and everything is so easy going. No doubt in order to experience such kind of life, one must not be too greedy on the incomes one would be getting living in such remote places.

But of course, life style there would be way much cheaper as well compared to our hectic city life. Like there's an old saying, There's a price to pay to every choice we make.

We are going to enjoy this weekend with the scent of sea breeze over the atmosphere, sitting by the beach while the gentle waves sweeps across your leg, the sea breeze running through your hair and letting yourself soak in the warmth of what the sun could provide.

Ah...the life... I can't wait to go back there and take some nice pictures as well as enjoy a full load of seafood :p

Till then, will report more when I get something out of it

What on earth is going on??

My apologies people, As most of you know recently we have internet issues with Streamyx and also possible with other ISP outside.

Hence this had made me unable to upload pictures through the internet as my upload speed now is like only about 40-100kbps >.< in which, layman terms it means it's fucking slow to upload any pictures....

Since there's no pictures to upload, let me recap on my resolution for year 2008.

1) Cutback on smoking.
  • I have been trying for about 2 years to quit on smoking. I used to smoke like 2 packs of cigs a day. I fully understand the consequences of smoking and yes, I have been working on cutting down from 2 packs a day till up to date 3-4 days a pack. Not much of improvement you say? Well for some it's quite difficult despite the stress and the issues I go through throughout the 2 years. In a way, I'm making progress...

  • Well for this whole year round, I didn't really manage to cut down significantly, however, I did manage to only maintain the same amount of smokes per day... hence, I FAILED...

    2) Improvements in my career.
  • I have just changed a new job. I'm earning more than my previous company. In a way I'm proud of my achievements but for this year, it's gonna get harder. I would like to stand out in my career and I have set a certain amount I wanna achieve in salary and as well as I have set the position I would like to be in for my career - a full fledged manager. :p

  • Hmm.... year 2008 was considered challenging to me coz I have changed like 3 jobs in that year. However, it's an upgrade on each job I've changed. I'm a full fledged project manager now and I'm happy with my job despite the busy schedule. So... this is a PASS....

    3) Find someone special.
  • for 15 months now I've remained single. I've never gone out much from my house. My only routine is to go to work and come home. That's about it. Isolation was my theme for the past year. This time around, I think it's a suitable time for me to look for someone special to complete myself in the things I would not be able to do alone. *I know. some of you are laughing while reading this =.=" *

  • Umm.. need I say more? I have found someone special and till this day, I'm still very happy being with her ^^ so this is a PASS...

    4) Change of Lifestyle.
  • As I mentioned above, I have not gone out much the whole year hence it kinda distorted my once glorious social life. :( *Stop laughing =.="* So I think this year I should go out and meet the world once again. Working with my previous company had made me too lazy to go out coz everyday during the weekdays I work till late nights therefore making me lazy to leave the comfort of my house after office. It also made me appreciate home more during the weekends as it's the only time I would be able to relax and rest. This new job however, is more relaxed. They don't really encourage overtime works. So I believe I'll be able to have more time spent not only with my family but with my friends as well. :)

  • I have had some outings this year. I've been slightly more active with my friends this year around and I'm proud to pronounce this resolution a PASS...

    5) Obesity control.
  • Ever since I got back from Hong Kong at 2006, I gradually grew bigger in size as well as weight. I used to frequent the gym but after Hong Kong, I've been lazy and well too tired after work to hit the gym. So This year, I'm gonna put myself back to the gym and I would wanna have a proper toned up body by the end of this year *fingers crossed*

  • I failed plus failed another time.... historically, the heaviest I've been is like 75kg but this year around, I've gone up to 80kg >.<>

    6) Getting a place to call my own home.
  • For 2 years now I've been planning to get my own place but was either too lazy to look for one, or due to some other plans of leaving the country that stopped me from searching harder. This year I suppose it'll be a better idea to get my own place. Well I might achieve in finding someone special so in a way, I do need something solid as well. A home would be the best bet.

  • Due to the frequent change of jobs, my income was affected as well, hence I limited myself from viewing any properties. So this year I'm probably gonna try again.... For now, this resolution FAIL...

    Well well, 3 passes and 3 fails. Not bad still... It's still a 50% success to setup your own resolutions.

    I will figure out what is my 2009 resolution is and will then update here once again...Sigh gonna be another year older soon... >.<
