opps... i did it again!

when will i ever learn?? slept at 3am yesterday. gosh, what a bad way to start off the week... urgh!

actually my schedule for the weekend was just right, but was delayed by something that's a total waste of time... so ended up cleaning house n room until 11pm yesterday! then had to finish up some work, until 3am lor. shit lar... i'll never waste my time on such meaningless thing anymore, which dun even leave me satisfied in the first place!

neeways... went for the mph warehouse sales as planned... they have more books compared to last year, tho not all are there. i can't find most of the books i had in mind. bought 4 novels, 3 biographies, 2 reference books and 1 vcd. kekeke... but i didn't go to have my teeth fixed coz the dentist wasn't in. will try again next time.

n oh gosh... i think the stupid %$^)*&+*#(*&$@ IT manager is reading my e-mails n my blog. y i suspect this? coz this morning, he walked into my dept and i greeted him as usual in my fake cheerfulness in seeing him. he didn't even take a good look at me, but straight away said, 'hi, how come ur eyes are getting darker by the day?' so means he read my e-mails where i sent out my blog url to my frens... then go to that url to read the blog! remember me talking abt my dark rings? gosh!!! if he's so free, y don't he utilise his time on more meaningful stuff, such as upgrading his IT skills (which he thinks he's already reached the highest level, but is actually just the tip of the iceberg), his ppl managing skills (which really sucks!), or read the newspaper to know more about the current events (which he never does). sod him, man! really HATE him! i'd have used a 'stronger' n more 'bombastic' word on him, but why should i degrade myself in using profanities on him?

woo-hoo, saturday at last!

hehehe... can't contain my joy...

let's see, what will i be doing this weekend? as of now, after i log off, i'm gonna watch some vcds. it's a taiwanese series, 'love on the aegean sea' or 'ching ding ai ching hai'. but there's a korean actress in it, cute Chai Lin (or Chae Rim in korean)from 'all about eve'. she's so slim n pretty now... n cute!

chae_rim chae_rim

but i'm taking way too long with this series, due to lack of time. i can only steal 2-3 hours per week to watch it... at the rate i'm going, i think i'll need at least 3 months to go thru the 40 episodes! hmm... luckily my cousin is in no hurry to have the series back (it belongs to my sg cousin; she has a large collection of such series, most of them korean).

then tomorrow,... i mean in the morning, i'll be going to the dentist. there's this chip on my front tooth that has been there for i dunno how long. i can't even remember how it got there in the first place! anyway, i've kinda accepted it being that way all these while, until one day a fren mentioned that i can actually get it filled to be whole again! gosh! why didn't anyone tell me that before? and it's not even an expensive procedure! so gonna go do it tomorrow... hehehe...

on sunday, has promised to go for the mph clearance sale with N. it started today (i mean yesterday, friday), but we can't go coz it closes at 7 and i get off work only at 6.30. some more we had ice skating... then can't go on sat coz N has to attend a whole-day seminar. so sunday lor... hopefully there'll still be some good books left for us. last year we went on a sunday too, and even tho the crowd's not so great as compared to the first 2 days, the whole place's a mess! but with patience, we were still able to find 1-2 books to buy. hopefully this year will not be so messy and will have more books on bargain, as there are a few books that i've been wanting to buy.

so that's all for my weekend. oh yeah, i'm on duty this week. so gotta clean house this weekend too... *shucks!

Monday, February 21, 2005


i keep telling myself not to start the week sleepy, to at least go to bed early on sunday nite... but i can never do it. *sigh... the thing abt being sleepy, tired n exhausted on a monday is, the whole week seems to stretch extra long in front of u. gosh, can't wait for the weekend, the only time i can slumber to my heart's content.

t commented today that my eye bags are getting serious (from the pics in my previous blog). alamak... how ar? i really need to sleep more. anyone has any petua for getting rid of eye bags/rings? really turning into a panda now...

read in the reader's digest that we can never catch up on our sleep... but really can't help it. job search is still going no where... really hope to get a better paying job so that i can quit that stupid %^#(*)%#@! cheap paying freelance job n have more time for myself.

new blog add...

ok, we're now at a new url... hehehe...

Wednesday, February 16, 2005


ok, i'm gonna change the url for this blog... will e-mail the new url only to the few that i want them to read. oh, n u bloggers out there, pls dun link me in ur blogs anymore, k?

it's really a wonder with some ppl...

hmm... some ppl really have the guts n u just gotta respect their courage, if not their intentions... well, there's this clg who shamelessly goes ard asking for ang-pao from all the married clgs in the office... whenever she has any chance to talk to anyone who's married, she'll spew out all those cny greetings, always ending with 'hong pao na lai' n putting out her palm. *raised eyebrows* is that really necessary? when she does it in front of me, i'll feel so embarrassed for her. i mean, it's not that she's very young still, for crying out loud. when a few of my clgs gave me red packets, i'll even feel pai-seh to take it. it's not like they're my relatives or anything, and in the office, we're sorta like equals... so a bit shy to receive red packets from them... it's like receiving ang-pao from ur frens... so weird.

there's this clg, same age as me, who got married late last year... then yesterday, when she saw me, she scolded me for not going over to her place (we're at different sections in the office) to 'pai-nien' with her. she said she's been looking for me to give me ang-pao, but i'm always not at my place (first day at work yesterday, so kinda bz). so pai-seh neh! dunno whether to go or not, feel like so weird. but in the end, still went over with a mandarin orange lar, coz she's asked me to.

one of the dreaded things during cny is when the older relatives will ask u when are u gonna start distributing red packets instead of always collecting it. but i think for my case, i'm considered lucky coz i'm the youngest among all the cousins, n there are still older cousins who are single. so even tho' my being a singleton is still being discussed, the pressure's not that great. i'm still 'young' in their eyes! *grin*

lost again

hmm... the blog i sent thru e-mail from the office today was lost again... weird. wonder where is it now...

4th day of cny oredi...

hmm... so fast! today is the only day that my family n i have the time to stay at home n relax a little... been bingeing on food, as usual... kekeke...

going back to kl on monday, V day... beginning to hate that word, after what happened last year. he's spoiled v day for me forever. i'll nvr be able to think abt v day without thinking abt our first break-up n how i should've stuck to that first break-up instead of giving in to his sweet-talk.

well... nothing much to blog abt. or rather... dun feel like blogging abt anything, coz found out my bro's been reading my blog. comtemplating shifting my blog to somewhere else... i can't pour myself out when at the back of my mind, i know bro'll be reading it. *shit* shouldn't have blogged from his pc last time.

really dao-mei (unlucky) - part 2

called the fatso again today to tell him the fixing cost is rm480. he said it's too expensive n i've been cheated. i told him we know the workshop and they won't cheat us. he said he's already asked around and the most is only rm300. so he said he'll only pay me rm150. the first time i called, the line was disconnected. so i called back and said, "it's not settled yet, y did u cut me off?" he said his line is bad, as he's driving on the highway. here's our conversation briefly...

sue: how can just pay rm150?

fatso: yeah, we split the bill. we're both in the wrong. u shouldn't have driven so fast in a small lane.

sue: u also know how to say it's a small lane. then u shouldn't have parked ur big car at the shoulder.

fatso: whatever it is, i'll just give you rm150. i gave u rm100 yesterday, so i'll just give u another rm50. ok, it's settled (wanted to put down the phone).

sue: no, wait, it's not. rm150 is not enuf. let's settled this properly.

fatso: i also want to settle it properly. but y must u ask so many ppl to call me. i didn't like the way ur mom (N's mom, she pretended to be my mom) spoke to me, as if i'm bullying u. i didn't bully u, ok?

sue: ok, my mom is uneducated n her tone is a little too strong. i can apologize on behalf of my mom. but u also have to be reasonable.

fatso: no, no need apologize. rm150 is enuf lar. i went to fix my car door just now. i had to pay rm400 over leh.

sue: but u can't put those up against me. it wasn't my fault.

fatso: i'm not putting it against u. i'm just telling u i need to come out so much of money. rm150 is enuf for ur car lar. ok, that's it. i need to attend a meeting now (put down the phone).

wow! his meeting is on the highway! impressive! *eyes rolling*

later, i send him an sms:

the total cost is rm480. if u dun believe me, i can fax u the receipt. i think u pay rm300 is very reasonable. my account number is xxx for abc bank. if u believe in 'pao-ing' n 'ying-kuo', then i hope u'll do the right thing.

plan B: gonna 'chase debt' beginning cny eve. hopefully he's the superstitious type. some ppl really pantang abt such things during cny. even if i dun get the money, at least he's not going to be let off so easily. that'll teach him to mess with me!

really dao-mei (unlucky)

wanted to go to the bank yesterday. as i turned into the shop lots area of the bank, a pajero was parked illegally at the shoulder of the road on the left, directly in front of a restaurant. as i was passing it, its car door suddenly swung open and it was too late for me to brake. i think i just scrapped it or something as the door didn't drop off... but the left side of my car teruk... both doors were scratched, my side mirror was gone, the mudguard above my left wheel was dented and the little signal light at the side was gone. *shit*

so i got down to face the driver, a fat guy around my age. at first he said it's just a small matter and wanted to walk off! but i said it's not a small matter, as my car was damaged n it's his fault.

fatso: it's an accident lar. no one wish such things to happen.

sue: yeah, i also didn't wish to bang you. but it has happened and u are the cause of it. so u have to take responsibilities.

fatso: ok, u jot down my number and call me after u've fixed it.

sue: how can? what if u run away?

fatso: i won't lar. u can call my number now. my phone will ring.

sue: i know, but what if u refuse to pick up my call or refuse to pay me later? there're a lot of such cases.

fatso: i won't lar. if not, what do u want?

sue: pay me off now. i think it'll need rm500 to fix it.

fatso: no lar, rm500 too much lar. i think rm100-200 can fix oredi.

sue: hey, just look at my car. how can rm100-200 be enough?

fatso: i don't have so much money now (didn't dare to show me his wallet)

sue: there's a bank over there (pointing).

fatso: i don't have any money in the bank. i don't have an ATM card.

sue: so how?

fatso: ok lar, here's my name card. call me when u've fixed it, then we'll split the bill.

sue: what do u mean split the bill??? i'm not in the wrong. why should i pay for it?

fatso: ok lar, just call me after u've fix it (walking away into the restaurant).

sue: wait, why are u walking away? this has not settled yet!

fatso: i told u, call me after u've fixed it.

after some time arguing, we decided to make a report. so i told him he'll have to pay the compound of rm300, coz he's in the wrong. and u know what the stupid pig said? "no. we do our own report. u go report it now, i'll do it later after my dinner" (starting to walk in the restaurant again). so after consulting my dad on the phone, really bo-pien lor. asked for rm100 as deposit from him, the rest to be paid later after fixing.

later that night, i told N abt it. she told her family, then they got his number from me. at first, N's uncle called the guy, spoke nicely to him. but even b4 he finished his sentence, the pig disconnected the line! then N's mom kept trying to call, at last got thru. she scolded him for bullying me, but he said he never. he said he's already paid me rm100, n asked me to use that rm100 to fix the car! so N's mom asked him: "u think ur rm100 is very big? how can rm100 be enuf for those damages??" again, he said he'll split the bill with me. N's mom said i'll call him back.

so i called him and said he'll have to pay the full cost, as it's not my fault but he said both parties are in the wrong.

fatso: u saw my car parking there, why did u drive so close to my car?

sue: hey, in the first place, u shouldn't have parked ur car there. it's not a legal parking place.

fatso: that's another matter.

sue: yes, but u opened the door suddenly without looking behind. u're lucky u have not stepped out. if not, i would've knocked u dead! ok, if u wanna settle it, meet me at the workshop tomorrow and u deal with the workshop urself.

fatso: i'm very busy. i have 3-4 meetings tomorrow, i can't meet u.

sue: then too bad. i'll just have to make a report.

fatso: ok, make a report then.

i did went to make a report at the traffic police. but apparently, they can't take any action as i've taken his money n that's considered a settlement. the officer told me, even if i'd taken rm2 from him, it's considered as we've settled it. so it's a no case. damn!

anyway, went to have my damage accessed... fixing will take rm150 and spraying another rm100++, so it'll be around rm300++. gonna call that pig to tell him i've not lodge a report and ask him to pay. stupid fatty pig!

p/s: the thing that got me most mad is when he said i'm mah-fan... what did he mean by me being mah-fan??? he thinks i enjoy having my car damaged like that??? he thinks i enjoy arguing with him? if it weren't for him, i won't even be standing there talking to him! *fuming*

my blueberry cheesecake

well, here it is...


looks kinda nice huh? can see a lot of blueberries inside... yummy! at first i put in half a tin of blueberries to be mixed in the mixer, then discovered all the blueberries crushed up! that's y the cake looked a bit blue. hahaha... so after i remove it from the mixer, i add in more blueberries and just stir it with a spoon. cut it up this morning, still too soft. but at least it can still stand on its own. i was so afraid it'll just collapse melimpah-limpah out when i peel away the aluminium tray. *phew!

anyway, i think i put in too much blueberry syrup at one place n didn't stir the bottom properly, coz when i cut it, the syrup kinda seep out, like bleeding! my bleeding blueberry cheesecake! hahaha...

taste wise, still ok lar. still tastes like blueberry cheesecake. if only i didn't used too much whipping cream. then it'd be perfect! *sigh...

failed attempt?

rushed back from work today to bring my housemate to Carrefour to shop for the cake ingredients... found out they actually sell blueberry/strawberry/raspberry in tin form! kekeke... so sua-ku. then rushed home again to make it...

first of all, i crushed too much digestive biscuits... then i didn't think to measure it (recipe said 1 cup), so i just poured in the melted butter into that big bowl of crushed biscuits! alamak! naturally, the butter wasn't enuf to make it sticky. so had to divide the thing in half and then add more butter into 1 half of it. n throw away the other half! so sayang...

then i think i used too much whipping cream... again recipe said 1 cup. but i just poured the whole carton in (small carton only lar, 200g). hmm... that's y my cake turned out kinda watery compared to my first cake. it's in the fridge now, afraid to go see it... but i remembered last time, i used the whole carton of whipping cream too... hmm... maybe last time i used manual stirring, n this time i used the mixer i got from my company annual dinner.

oh yeah, speaking of mixer, it's kinda leceh a little, coz it can't reach the 'far corners' of the mixing bowl. so had to keep stopping the machine to scoop out those thick paste stuck there and then start the machine again. n i STILL get unevenly mixed paste in the end... *sigh...

anyway, i used blueberry... n for deco, i poured in some of the blue-coloured syrup into the cheese filling n then kinda stirred it a tiny bit to create a marbled look... hehehe... looks kinda nice, but hopefully it'll harden by tomorrow morning!
