Muahhhhhhhh !!!!!

The above kiss is for no other than my company / management for giving their employee another long weekend this week.For the first time ever we are getting a replacement holiday for a public holiday that falls on Saturday. Tomorrow is the public holiday for Wesak & for that, we are getting next Monday off.....yeeeeee haaaaaaaa !!!

As I mentioned before, our company has just been acquired by General Electric about a year ago & we are still in the midst of adapting to the new rules & regulations. I dont wanna put my hopes too high up but at the same time I cant help myself but to wish that this is the regular practice in GE whereby the employees shall get a replacement holiday for any public holidays that falls on Saturday.

But even if it's not, I am still grateful for I dont have to work next Monday when most people would. And with Monday being an off day, it means that I have 2 solid days for my next movie marathon - as Astro's free channels will end this Sunday ( damn...I sounded so cheap !! ). Had a really hectic week & I deserve this long break.

So, have a great weekend ahead peeps & for those who are working next Monday - you can start envying me already !!!

Thank You Astro !

Astro Malaysia was recently voted as the Most Popular Brand at the Putra Brand Awards 2012. And as a gesture of thanks and appreciation, Astro is broadcasting 130 channels free for all subscribers - for a week, starting from 27th April till 6th May 2012 ! 

Thank you Astro - though the vote didnt come from me( and honestly, I dont even know the existence of that Putra Brand Awards).

Like they said, good opportunity like this only comes once and that we shouldnt let it passed without grabbing it. Since my parents were in town on the 27th till the 29th, I cant do much on those days to really appreciate the "gift" I got from Astro.

Starting from the 30th morning till the next 1st May morning, there I was lying on my sofa watching as many movies as these eyes could take it. By the end of the day, I managed to make a marathon of 5 movies whcih is my very own personal record. 

As I told Marsya, never before in my 42 years of age, I've watched that much of movies in a day. By the time I am done with the fifth movies, I feel like throwing up - seriously. It was an absolutely a movie over-dose for me.....buwekkkkk !!!

These were the movies that I watched :
a)   Just Go With It   :  A story about friends turned into lovers - sweet story, I must say
b)  The Last Three Days  :  Suspense to the core till I feel my heart like bursting out !
c)   Narnia 3  :  Too fairy tale-ish for me - dozed off a couple of time through out the movie
d)   No Strings Attached  :  Yucks ! stupid...stupid....stooooopid story ! 
e)   Killer  :  So-so lahhh.....

One thing I realized after watching two Ashton Kutcher's movies back to back is that - he's really a hawt, hawt hottie ! Look, I dont really watch TV, ok....so how would I know this Kutcher boy is actually that hot? He's so tall & has the sweetest smile ever <3 <3 <3  . 

Now I understand why Demi has to go under the knife to be with him.......poor Demi !!


Something amazing happened in my office this morning & I just feel like sharing it here in my blog.

I was doing my work when one of the manager in the office came to me to discuss on a project I am currently working on. So, there we were taking and discussing intensely on the subject when the boss's secretary came and told the manager that the big boss is already in.

At that moment itself, in the middle of our "intense discussion", he turned & walked towards the boss's room. It was as if he's being hypnotized whereby he just turn away from me & walked away - without saying even a single word to me who is apparently still talking to him. No "sorry"...no "excuse me"....no nothing at all ....and all i know, I've probably become the first Invisible Woman in the region !

Amazing isnt, it? 

Sucking up in the work place is normal....in fact, very normal. There are at least one employee in every office who sucks up to the boss. In fact, chances are there are a lot more than one. One who constantly hurls flatteries at superiors or laugh a little too much at their so-called jokes. Or maybe one who brings in chocolates for the managers or offers to grab them a coffee from time to time. Or the type of employee who simply stays back in the office just to impress the boss ( though all he's doing is browsing the net !! )

These Suck-Ups....well, everybody knows them. Love them or hate them, the Suck Ups sure know how to get what they want by knowing just the right things to say and a whole lot of brown-nosing. To get what they want, they don’t care who they have to lay on all the false flattery to..as long as they get what they want in the end.

Honestly, I dont really care about these group of people. If you have the quality of being one, go ahead and lick up those ass till it shines. But please have some dignity on yourself - do it in the subtly manner and know just the right amount to flatter without coming across as being too fake. Dont make it so transparent that everyone can see right through you and make them lose their respect on you.

The best thing is still to work you ass out. Work and work smart, efficiently and for the good of your organization. That’s the best way to get ahead and feel good about yourself at the same time.

An Asshole In the Making

I cant remember when was the last time I felt so, so, so, so angry like this. But one thing I am very sure of is that the last time I felt this way is because of the same reason - men ! Honestly, their stupidity has never failed to get in contact with my tentacles.

Here's the story.....

Last nite, coming back from my committee meeting, Marsya was telling me about this one boy from her school who seems to pick a fight with her for no reason. Apparently my daughter post a new profile pic. of her in FB and tagged her BFFs asking them how was it - which I think is quite normal for any girls. 

Then, came this boy who started commenting her post in a very harsh way.

 I really dont understand what's his problem was. If he's a girl maybe, I can assume he's currently having her period. Or if he's a 50++ year old lady, then at least I can forgive her as she might going through a hard menopausal phase. But he's neither one of those, for crying out loud !!! Anyway, thinking back  he's a male and being that alone seems to put all the puzzles together - his gender makes perfect sense after all.

I couldnt find any word that could describe his rudeness. But he somehow reminded me the fact that guys regardless of their age are simply an asshole. Not enough they have an ugly face, they have to top it up with an ugly attitude as well !! Bravo !

Marsya is my only daughter and when somebody treated her this bad, I got really, really upset. I wish I could call this Zafran creature and gave him a piece of my mind but unfortunately Marsya didnt have his number. So, the most I can do is through the FB...sigh !

This is the best I could do though I really wish I cud do more - so gerammmm !!!

His reply came the next day since it was already 12 midnite when I post the above comment. Zafran just proved to himself and the rest of the world that he's actually an airhead when he could say this to me :

He actually deleted his particular comment where he called Marsya a "bitch" and stupidly replied to me while trying to make me look like a fool. Well, too bad Zafran coz you are the one being a fool here. FYI, I am not a 13 year old girl whom you used to bully or curse everyday at school - I am a 42 year old woman whose brain is still working at its best. 

Knowing that this fool might delete some of his comments (which he actually did), I've saved all of them the night before right after I read them.  And this is the part where he cursed my Marsya and later denies it :

These were my last words to Zafran and I really wished I could say it out to his face coz that would be much, much more magnificently glorious.

One might say that I am being stupid for picking a fight with a kid. But then what he did is very wrong and if everybody ignored him just because he's still a boy, imagine what kind of a man he would grow up into !

C'mon, we have enough men out there who treated women worse than a door mat and we certainly dont wanna add the quantity up, dont we?
