BABYSITTING


I have no kids. Perhaps one day I will have my own kids. No, I ain't biatching about 'baby' sitting babysitting. It's the daily babysitting thingy that I do;

When I was on the road...I was darn cautious with those drivers who changed lanes without indicating. Aha, I was babysitting other drivers. Seriously.

When I was in a meeting, I was making sure that no one fights. (riiight)

When I was doing my housekeeping...I will dispose garbage properly..and bl**** recycle.

I will do office's dishes...

I will put the tray at the trash counter after McDonald's and KFC...people looked at me funny in this part of the world..(I ain't kidding)

I will practice good toilet training in public toilet..(ah please don't choke...)

I will pick up things lying around the floor...

I switch the lights off and make sure no unnecessary appliances on...before I leave any premise when no one's around.

I will try my very best to make people around me comfortable, no matter who they are...

No more laughing at people who fell down...I actually helped them up...

No more biacthing at people with 'dark' skin...hmmm how to put it...in me own lingo; " Eh..hitam nye dia....tak lawa " I can't translate this one...One day not too long ago I 'duh'ly realised that it was such a 'discriminative' remark....a unrealised 'discrimination' behaviour that my people been practised for a while and hurt people's feelings.

I open doors for people

I don't intentionally take other people's things without permission....

I better stop coz the list can go on.....

Oh did I say this blog was about babysitting??? Hmmm...I might lost the plot here....I think it's time to get some real sleep and stop worrying about babysitting others.....

WORK...TO THE BONE.....


The massive tender documents that needed to 'attend' to...*sigh*
I don't know why they say that "Work to the bone"....ok maybe till the day we die and all our bones are stickin out....we are still be 'working...'

A few of us made it to the office today (on our off days)...no pressure from the bosses *winks* to be here but we (the 'responsible ones) know what it takes to get things done within given stipulated deadlines and understand the fact that what we are doing here today...someone else will take the bl**** credits.

To make the best out of everything in this situation...I was thinking of ordering in some food...but a young lady in my office who happens to be an excellent cook brought some 'vermicelli noodles' and local fish crackers and they tasted awesome! SPICY FRIED BEE HOON

I had 2 (Two) big servings of those noodles and I was more than happy to continue working and forget about all of last week's sorrows...:-)
The rest of the world...HAVE A LOVELY WEEKEND AND 'PARTY' TO THE BONE ;-)

KFC DINNER


L-R: The Salad, KFC snack plate and The Cheeeeeesy Wedges

My sister is a big fan of KFC. Of all the 'fast food' I ever asked to buy for her on my way home from work, she never once refused KFC, or Kenny Roasters (of course this is going to be in a different blog). Last few days she skipped dinner and that got me really worried. This girl has a big problem...not eating....I don't mind the 'skinny' thing, but I worry if she faints or gets sick because of insufficient nutritions. Ok, I may sound like a big 'mother' here, but she is my responsibility...and of course I love her to death. Even she's already a quarter of a century..she's still my baby sister. Anyway, enough of the soppy part, I bought her KFC. A snack plate and a bowl of salad and cheesy wedges (the wedges were for me of course..ha ha..and that explains why I am the fat one in the family). My happiest moment was to see her finished her food and we kinda 'hang' in front of the tee vee re-watching sex and the city. While bitching about work and eating away...we stopped at this.. and laughed.

LUNCH AT ALEXIS

I was all of a sudden swamped with proposals and tenders. The bosses were away, I thought I could breathe a bit but nooooo more work....I guess work will never end..I started writing the proposals and after around 11am I started feeling famish. I started to ask around who would want to go out of the building to get lunch. You gotta plan these things...some lazy a** just wouldn't want to leave their seats as if there are no tomorrows. So I asked the people who love food as much as I do. We decided to drive not too far away from the office but not too close. We drove in my colleague's brand spanking new Honda CRV. I have developed some kind of passion for that car. We arrived at our destination 15 minutes after 1pm. I am always fond of Alexis since years ago when they started their outlet in Bangsar. The selections are just nice. To be honest, I was craving for Alexis as soon as we got to Bangsar Shopping Centre.

The view from where we were sitting and the cover of the menu

Three fuzzy drinks: Rasberry Soda, Lime Soda and Lemon Soda

Humus and Guacamole

Humus and Half Spring Chicken (Roasted)

Lamb Wrap with vegies and tortilla

The dessert: Lemon pie and Crunchy delight

Once again fellas, we came back to the office happy and well energised by great lunch!

AMERICAN BOY

This song has been ringin in my ears....


Kanye West:
Just another one champion sound
yeah Estelle about to get down
who the hottest in the world right now.
Just touched down in London town.
Bet they give me a pound.
Tell them put the money in my hand right now.
Tell the promoter we need more seats,
we just sold out all the floor seats

Estelle:
Chorus
Take me on a trip, I'd like to go some day.
Take me to New York, I'd love to see LA.
I really want to come kick it with you.
You'll be my American Boy.

He said, Hey Sister.
It's really really nice to meet ya.
I just met this 5 foot 7 guy who's just my type.
like the way he's speaking, his confidence is peaking.
Don't like his baggy jeans but Ima like what's underneath them.
And no I aint been to MIA
I heard that Cali never rains and New York's heart awaits. First let's see the west end.
I'll show you to my bridren.
I'm like this American Boy. American Boy

Chorus
Take me on a trip, I'd like to go some day
Take me to New York, I'd love to see LA.
I really want to come kick it with you.
You'll be my American Boy. American Boy

Can we get away this weekend.
Take me to Broadway.
Let's go shopping baby then we'll go to a Café.
Let's go on the subway.
Take me to your hood.
I neva been to Brooklyn and I'd like to see what's good.
Dress in all your fancy clothes.
Sneaker's looking Fresh to Def I'm lovin those Shell Toes.
Walkin that walk.
Talk that slick talk.
I'm likin this American Boy. American Boy.

Chorus
Take me on a trip, I'd like to go some day.
Take me to New York, I'd love to see LA.
I really want to come kick it with you.
You'll be my American Boy

PIZZA AND SEX

I couldn't be bothered to cook or go out for lunch this afternoon.So I looked over the side of my fridge (where I put all the take-out menus and numbers)..I was tired of my liquid diet and I must eat something solid. After discovering that I could open my mouth a liiiitle bit wider and I could chew without too much pain...so I decided to be a little bit adventurous on my food intake.
~~~
I braved myself to order in Canadian Pizza Two for One. I was too hungry so I ordered the large ones AND Lasagna! (Pig! ha ha). When I rang, of course the delivery guy had my details. Before I knew it he said I was going to order Mexican Fiesta and Canadian Supreme. I was impressed but then again I was not that difficult to figure out when it comes to food.

The Two for One Pizza reminds me a lot of University.

Mexican Fiesta and Canadian Supreme Pizzas

Ahhh...the food is here and I started my re-runs of Sex and the City and I don't know for how many kzillionth times I watched the episodes. Houston, I have a problem....

A few slices and sex (and the city of course...what did ya think????)...I had one of the most wonderful relaxing and bloated sundays! Pizza and Sex always go together, bwah ahh hha hhaaaa...ouch...cannot open mouth..ouch ouch
