Random Notes 40

(1) One of the best thing about blogging is getting to read comments. It's something that I always look forward to. Kudos to all you amazing readers out there.

(2) Special credits to the many suggestions that you guys/gals gave me for the possible costumes I can go for my D&D. Price is main consideration for me, I wouldn't want to spend a bomb on an event that last for a night.

So the cheapest option will thus be a male stripper as suggested by girl in stiletto. But as my company is filled with babes gals, I wouldn't want to make them to swarm to me like bees to honey, right? =p

Foongpc has a list of unconventional suggestions for occupational costume parties. It will be a pity if I don't share it here.
Dress as a chef? a doctor? a policeman? a soldier? an underwear model? a politician? an astronaut? a magician? a clown? a gravedigger? a pastor? a porn star? a ghostbuster? a zoologist? a butcher? a crime scene investigator? a rapper?

Gravedigger, wahahahahaha!
Hmm....

(3) Do you guys listen to music at work? I do. Somehow these dance and techno music always keep my focus on the work, and improve my work productivity.

(4) The first presentation I ever made in worklife occurred many many years ago. It was a big screwup. Being the fresh graduate that I was, I went for the presentation thinking that since my section and departmental manager were ok with the materials in my slide, everything will be a breeze. I was pretty much embarrassed at the presentation by the skeptical audience. A very humbling experience, but I never took it negatively. Instead, I worked on the shortcomings, and learnt how to anticipate "make or break" questions. And now in my resume, I proudly list "Comfortable in presenting my findings to management and clients, and DEFENDING them" as one of my key attributes.

(5) It is said that ladies enjoy the moment of receiving flowers, rather than having the flowers itself. If that is so, does that mean that after the gal have received our flowers, we can get it back and give it to another girl? Ok, I'm kidding on this.

(6) I believe alot in being honest. Even if you risk making someone unhappy, at least the person gets feedback. I don't need everyone to like me, but I need everyone to trust me.

(7) Is it true that the best guys in the world are either married or gay? After all, I'm married. Luckily for you single gals out there, there's ALOT of available guys like khengsiong and foongpc out there. Take those stamps of your eyes, babes. Now can you feel the LOVE tonight?

(8) There was a little girl who went to a shop with her grandfather to purchase calenders. So the old man asked her to pick a calender for the upcoming year. So the little girl flipped through the various calenders. But she kept doing so for some time, unable to pick a calender of her choice.

So her grandpa asked her, "Dear, do you not like any of the designs in these calenders"

And the little girl replied, "The designs are ok. But I can't find a calender with many Sundays."

(9) Wifey's getting a little sianz (demoralised) having to work after coming back from our Genting holidays. Hang on there, Sweetie! I love you. ^_^

#3 - When I was working in singapore, they played soft background music. I thought that was rather distracting.

#5 - I don't enjoy receiving flowers from strangers though.

#7 - Best guys in the world is gay? I don't mind having a gay friend. Actually, I would be glad to have one, I think they are funny, fascinating and hilarious. Plus, they know a lot about looking good! :o)

#8 - haha! good one! But after I change my career, I look forward to Mondays rather than weekends.

Thank you. Thank you. Very thick-skinned, hor?

Foong forgot park ranger esp with duties to guide lost tourists. hehe... this is in ref to him being lost in China. :p

(3) Do you guys listen to music at work? I do. Somehow these dance and techno music always keep my focus on the work, and improve my work productivity.

Love the disco but not techno music..

Good for you. I've always felt that anyone with good and effective presentation skills will go far.

Ooh... I sure would love to have Adam Lambert as a friend. Have you seen his latest album cover? He looks so beeeeeautiful, delicious even! Too bad, can't have him. haha..

(9) Wifey's getting a little sianz (demoralised) having to work after coming back from our Genting holidays. Hang on there, Sweetie! I love you. ^_^

Aww, so sweet of you!

Hope you and your wifey enjoyed your holiday to Gentings and made lots of $$..

How was the weather there? KL has been raining. In fact, it's raining now (again). Blame it on the monsoon season. Did you drive?

Mabel Low said...

(1) Agreed fully to that! Sometimes it's a pity some readers leave the comments in the chatbox. And after a period of time, the comment disappears. :(


(2) I too was having some difficulty deciding. I went to the party as Black Riding Hood, ended up being mistaken as something else=.=


(4) I always wonder how do people in the worklife present, how the people will criticise the presentation, etc. :S


(5) Flowers = waste money=.=


(9) Sigh. I'm having my exams DURING the holidays. T,T

Roxy. said...

Wow.I think the last note is the best note. :D

Yup, i listened to music whenever i doing my work. More productivity i think.

Actually, i dont like receiving flowers. I'm practical i guess. I think it's a waste of money when the flowers would wither and die in a few days. ;p

Yes, being honest is very impt. I would really like someone to be honest with me instead of playing the bush and making me waste my time and sorts. haiz.

Mei Teng said...

I don't listen to music at work. I have to endure constant whisperings and talking by some colleagues in office.

I prefer working in a quiet environment. Helps me concentrate. I hate noise pollution at work.

foongpc said...

1. Yeah, me too! I love to read comments from my readers! It's one of the best things about blogging!

2. Well, an underwear model is quite cheap too provided you don't wear designer underwear! Haha!

3. I like all types of music but I find dance and techno best for working out, whereas classical music best for doing something that needs focus and attention. Probably that's why doctors listen to classical music while doing surgery/operations!

4. Well, congrats to you! Good to learn from your mistakes!

5. Yes, absolutely! : )

6. It's good to be honest!

7. Unfortunately, despite the availability of a lot of single men out there, some girls still go for married men! Cannot really blame them cos the good guys are either married or gay right? Haha!

8. I also want a calendar with many Sundays! Preferably some weeks are made of 7 Sundays! : )

9. Yeah right! As if your declaration of love for her will make her feel better about going to work! : )

MKL said...

I like your style of writing and your blog grew on me and I told you, I also feel we think alike on some issues. So it's a pleasure to follow you and drop a comment :)

I think giving flowers is so cheesie these days. Do girls really like them? I agree with you, they may feel it's a romantic gesture, but the flower itself is not their source of happiness :)

I think you can be honest in some situations, in some you can't. If it's work related, you should be. If personal, not always the best thing.

TZ said...

hehehe... the best theme for annual dinner is BE YOURSELF... is this creative enough? which means that people can wear anything, do anything, enjoy to be themselves and... no need to get stress off to be someone else :p

the girl in stiletto said...

i almost forgot that i suggested that! ahahhaha that shows how random i can be.

wait, maybe not really. :P

i love flowers. but sometimes i dont see the point getting flowers. they die. like really fast.

The Envoy said...

#1 same here.

#3 We always have an assigned DJ in our workroom.

#8 Why are you telling my story?

Erny said...

I often hear people saying that, married guys get bored of their wife very fast, and tend to not be so affectionate after marriage. But, i realised, you adore your wife A LOT!
That's really very sweet, u know.

iamthewitch said...

Love your random notes! Really interesting and honest. :) Agree with you on the part about Honesty. It's the best policy yes? :)

Shingo T said...

Ai Shiang:
I gotta agree. From a gal's perspective, you don't have to be afraid that the gay guy will fall in love with ya when you just treat him as a confidante.

Wow, you look forward to Mondays? Are ya a workaholic? (kidding)

dolly:
Ya, maybe the gays are a little more gentle, and thus appear more caring.

HappySurfer:
haha, good one on the park ranger. Maybe foongpc can dress as that if he has an occupation party in future. =p

Adam Lambert, he's not one of those American Idol, I hope.

I took a bus to Genting and KL. It rained but I was mainly indoors, so it was ok. ^_^

Mabel Low:
Little Black Riding Hood. Haha, you are the dark version of the sweet little girl?

You will get your chance at presenting in some point of your career. If done right, it can be a very fulfilling experience.

Roxy:
For a poetic person like ya, I didn't quite expect you to be practical when it comes to roses. =p

Most men these days are learning to speak white lies for conveniece, in my view.

Mei Teng:
You give me the impression of someone who's very refined. Maybe that's why you don't tolerate noise?

foongpc:
haha, maybe I'll see bikini models in the party? *saliva drips*

You can have 7 Sundays a week! Just submit your resignation letter. Wahahahaha.

My declaration of love helps to distract my Wifey from throwing daggers to the man who made her work - me.

MKL:
Yup, I agree we have very similar way of thinkings. Are you my long-lost brother?

I have always made it a point to be completely honest with my Wifey, even if it's something that doesn't reflect very well on me. I guess I'm just too comfortable in this relationship.

TZ:
I want to be ME too. But the organising committee doesn't want ME.

girl in stiletto:
When the first flowers I gave to my Wifey died, and she just dumped it into the dustbin, my wallet felt pain. Sniff.

The Envoy:
haha, since when did my story become your story? =p

Erny:
I like to believe that I love my Wifey, while she idolises me. We still have many many years to go, so better to be sweet than nasty, right? ^_^

iamthewitch:
Honesty is the 2nd best policy. The best policy is insurance, everyone should have one.
