The One With The First For The Year 2012

Hey ya peeps!!!

It is never my intention to abandon The Good Life, but it seems my daily life cycle has no mercy on me. Currently, time seems like the worst enemy. I guess true what they have been telling me all these while. When you have the money, you do not have the instance to smell the meadow. You do not even have the time to snoop around to see if the grass was greener on the other side. In a blink of a day’s life, all you want is to snuggle into your comfy bed. But when you have the time, money is your nightmare. You have limited capital to indulge in the therapies that you always wanted – shopping, vacations, a refreshing facial and a good relieving massage; to name a few. I postulate only selected human beings on this wonderful earth have the privileged to have both at the same time. How lucky bastards they are!!!… Well, luck is how you perceive things to be, at least that is how I see luck is. I am not stating I am a Mogul either. However, the money I get from each paycheck is enough to get the ball rolling from month to month. Enough to help my other half’s bills here and there. This is the real world. R.E.A.L.I.T.Y  equals to S.A.C.R.I.F.I.C.E. Sacrifice does not necessary require you to perform some ritual voodoo mambo jumbo. Oh my readers, you get the gist on where I am getting at, aight?!?!??? All in all, the most important element is you enjoy each moment of the clock. I enjoy my new job and, I enjoy the quality time I have with my adorable felines and my 34 year old Baby boy. Yes, I do feel tired at times. Yes, I do complain to My Baby from time to time. I do whine. I do feel stress. I do feel tense of the pending chores. However, you have to learn to take things slowly. You have to learn to smile. You need to learn to breathe.  Overall, I love where my life is, at the moment that is… As a human being, you can not escape of wanting more and more so that at the end you can retire with style at the age of 65. You want better things. Better lifestyle… Yes, some times I do feel unfairness, but just like what I wrote earlier. Unfairness is just a part and parcel of life in which you learn to gradually accept and learn. Bitter…most definitely…Fuck this shit, the urban generation would say. Time is such a waste if you kept on questioning unnecessarily…

2011 had left us, and we say hello to 2012 – the fireworks, the year end concerts, the sing-out-loud Auld Lang Syne, the hugs and kisses, the hope, the dreams the prayers of a more virtuous year. We left whatever excess baggage of last year at the door step. Weeks passed by again. By the time I realized it, entered the auspicious dragon. I know, I know…I have been telling My Baby every Chinese New Year that I want a Cheongsam. But…muahahahahahaha…he should know me by now. Okay Baby. I will put dedicate-myself-to scout-a nice good quality cheongsam-or-move my cute little ass for a tailored Cheongsam in next year resolution. Optimistic a bit, will ya Baby? Then came Cupids.  They had started their magic with bows and arrows. Overwhelming love was in the air on that particular day.

My 33rd birthday is just around the corner. Sometimes, I wonder where the hell the days went? What did I do with the days that left me? Time flies surely super fast these days, super duper fast when you are fully occupied with daily chores. Speaking about my birthday, it felt just like yesterday when I celebrated my 32nd birthday at T.G.I.Fridays, the Curve with My Baby. It was a nice comfy simple birthday dinner. After the main course, I was surprised by a birthday cake. I did not know when he arranged the the staff, but I did know I had to stand on the chair holding a pepper shaker as a microphone and was forced to sing. The first came to my mind was Selamat Hari Raya song. Can you imagine me singing a Selamat Hari Raya song on my own birthday surrounded by stranger eyes’ watching me?…If I did not thank you that night Baby, thanks a million Baby…

For this coming 33rd birthday, all I wanted is to have yet another nice comfy simple dinner plus night out together with My Baby. Hopefully, My Baby’s new ride is ready by then so that we can cruise away through the pool of city lights. You know, when you are older you are expected to be matured compared to a year before. A lot of things can happen in year. A lot of things can change you for good or for the worst. A lot of things can make you see things in a different perspective. A lot of things can make you feel so much humble to have a blissful life. A lot of things can change tears to happiness in one year. When you were a teenager, all you wanted was some chocolate and red roses for your birthday. As you age, those chocolates and red roses would not make you ecstatic anymore. As you age, you demand different things. As you age, your responsibilities change. As you age, you know who you can depend to. As you age, you just know some people are really not worth being friends too. All I am asking for this birthday is to get some grace from the Merciful, to make things simple when it gets tougher. Amen.

There were so many things had happened until I do not know where to begin…

Right now, I am working with the world’s local bank in a Global Service Delivery. My current role requires me to work around the clock. It is totally different from my previous 9-5 Mondays to Fridays office job. In short, I work on shifts. I do not have permanent off days and, there is no Public Holidays in my work dictionary. In my work, I am the first contact to solve all the customer’s queries and problems. I am proud to say, 90% of their problems can be solved with a call away compared to other local banks. Despite I am not a people friendly, my work involved with human contact five days a week. 7.5 hours a days. Some customers can be really challenging. Some customers can really put a smile on my face. I take all of them as my life experiences. After all, not every one have the opportunity like I do. The monthly pay is quite alright. I can indulge in food hunting. I am more independent with my spending…his spending is not that tight anymore. I hope I have helped him in any way I could possibly can. With my out of ordinary work time, I feel pleased of his understanding. Since his work is more mobile, most of the time he has to follow with my work schedule. We try to make best out of everything that we have now I am working. A lot of daily routines change to accommodate one another. To me, the most satisfying in my job right now is when I am able to help people, who are in a trouble, with just one single phone call. Of course, the KPI bonus is also a satisfaction to me. My monthly performance is valuated on a score card. You earn what you deserve.

Oh yes, we are one step closer to start renovating our new home soon…

Bit by bit…

Slow and steady wins the race…

Till I blog again…

There is a secret garden, she hides
