Merry Merry Christmas 2012

Posted by petsim Ng at 12:51:00 PM 0 comments
It's 28 December today, and I am still in Christmas and holiday mood though I am working today. Still not too late to wish you all a Merry Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !

I had a wonderful Christmas and also an awesome weekend. Firstly, I met up with my girls on Sunday, caught up since our last gathering on July, pretty long time ago. It's really hard to gather all of us nowadays. Finally, we made it!

We had our Christmas meal and Christmas gift exchange at Morganfield's, Pavilion. A restaurant that has nice ambient with Christmas decoration. I took not much pictures that day, so I 'stole' the pictures from Siew Lee, hope she don't mind. Haha...

Warm corner of the restaurant
Christmas platter
Had christmas platter as our brunch that day. Christmas platter with their famous sticky bones, chickens, sausages and others side dishes. A big portion for 4 of us and it's fingers licking good! And the dessert, chocolate lava cake. Looks delicious, right? Yes, it is! By the way, I learnt new skill of how to snap better quality picture with iphone. Thanks yen ching for sharing such a good skill to us. Now I know the way to capture nice pictures under dim environment. Show you guys when have the chance :P

Chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream

And next, our Christmas exchange gift session. Who doesn't like Christmas present? :) Choosing what to buy as Christmas present was quite headache. I choose to buy accessories since all girls. Myself actually like the earrings so much, get it from Mid Valley after 2 hours of present hunting the day before we met. Felt like want to buy a pair for myself but the price is quite expensive for me. Hui Ping get my present, I hope she like it. And I get hers, a cute tumbler with a red flower on top. So lovely ~ I have so many tumblers now! 

Our Christmas presents for year 2012 

Pavilion always has great and pretty Christmas decoration. So we took lots of pictures after our wonderful brunch. But it's crowded that day, we needed to 'queue up' to take pictures. Like all the pictures so much. Here is the lovely picture, like this picture the most! Another sweet memories of us. We should have meet up closely, girls! 


More pictures on Facebook ~ *wink*

And the next day, Christmas Eve party at home! 

A simple Christmas Eve BBQ party at home. We used to have Christmas Eve party every year, because my friends and I are always lazy to out for celebration at this peak day. And again, I didn't took a single picture that night, so I 'stole' pictures from Siew Lee again! At the same time, I would like to thank my parents of helping me to prepare everything for the party. Thanks you!  



Just a simple and warm party at home. Enjoy the moments that be with my friends and family at this festive season. Hope everyone enjoyed the night as well. 

That's my Christmas day for year 2012. Merry merry Christmas once again! Year 2012 almost come to the end, year 2013 is just around the corner ! May the every moment of coming new year brings happiness and prosperity in life.

Happy New Year 2013! 



p/s: Year 2013 come faster, please ~ I can't wait to go Taiwan on January ! *Exciting* :D

12.12.12

Posted by petsim Ng at 10:39:00 PM 0 comments

12.12.12, the last of the repeating dates this century. It happens once in a lifetime, just like others triple date sequence on the calendar. It's the last one we'll see in our lifetimes. Wonder what can I do today to make it memorable. In fact, there's nothing special that I can do. It's like wasted the special day. 



12.12.12 still a normal working day for me. I was still going to work, came back home, skipped my jog due to raining day and had a short nap before my dinner. And now, sitting in front of my laptop. 


Sound like a bit too normal on this special day. Suppose to have this special day with my loved one but he's out of country today. And surprisingly,  I have no date today. I still remembered what I had done on 11.11.11 because I had a ridiculous one (http://pet-sim.blogspot.com/2011/11/111111.html). And guess that, I am going to have a really usual day today. What's mood should I have now? Hmm...whatever.

Therefore, I decided to do something unusual today - blogging. Sound so ordinary also, I know. But it's really hard to spend time on blogging nowadays. Busy with works and busy with outings. And my brain is congested with all sort of things which make me feels like lazy to blog. Think too much, perhaps.

Let's talk about December but not 12.12.12. I had a great starting for December. My boss had confirmed my appointment as chemist earlier and my monthly basic salary had been revised also. This is a good news. The early confirmation did encouraged me in working harder. Thanks, boss!  :) Feels so lucky that have such a nice and kind boss. Tarcian always kind and nice, my boss was a Tarcian and just so I am. Hahaha...

And next, Christmas is around the corner! The most festive holiday except Chinese New Year. Christmas 2012 is quite special for me, once in a lifetime as well. Will be organizing a party at my home. Not really a Christmas celebration but a gathering with friends and family. We did have party every year and this year is my turn. Looking forward for the day.  

Last but not least, our Taiwan trip is near! 1 month left, and we are working hard on it lately. Planning a trip is not an easy thing, but I am really excited about the trip. Browsing about Taiwan on net whenever I am free and with my laptop, started to plan what to do, what to buy and what to eat at Taiwan. Yes, I am excited! 

It's an hour plus left until the end of 12.12.12. I am still doing nothing special. Anyway, I do have a post for this special day, although the post is quite boring. Is 12.12.12 a good day to make a wish? Then I would like to wish everything go smooth until the end of December 2012! *Pray hard*

Good night!

2 + 5 = 25

Posted by petsim Ng at 7:58:00 PM 0 comments
25 years old, I'm turning a quarter of century soon, not even a month left.

25 is a rough age. Just know that people usually called it as mid life crisis. I was like stunned when I read this, crisis??? I am stepping into the age of crisis? Oh my god! I don't necessarily believe in the mid life crisis, but turning 25 certainly isn't joyful at the moment. For those still in the early ages of 20, you will know it soon.

25 feels like a different age than all the other ages I've experienced. Officially being an adult with responsibility, I suppose. All my life, I was looking forward to being 21. 22 is cool, 23 is cool, 24 is still cool and then 25 and suddenly it's not so cool anymore. 25 to 30, it's only 5 years away. I can't imagine how fast is the time passes. If could, I would like to beg for a stop. Time, stop running fast, please.

Where did the past several years go? It felt like just yesterday I was 21 years old and still hanging around, studying, preparing for exams, having fun. Honestly, I am not looking forward to it. I know 25 isn't old, but that is not my concern. 

It's time to analyze the aspect of LIFE and it's also time to think about things in life that I haven't done yet.

Read an interesting article today while in office (I was just too stressed to my works and took a break :P). '25 things you should do before you turn 25'. Get inspired with this article and decided to write this post, my first December post, the post before I turn 25!

Let's check this out! 

1. Travel abroad - Get off your butt and get off your block. It's a big world; see it in person not just online.
* Feels thankful that I did this. My England + Europe trip! For me, it's still not enough. By the way, I will heading to Taiwan very soon! *

2. Make friends with someone who doesn't look like you - Or think like you or believe as you do. Your world will get bigger as a result. 
* I can considered it as YES too! I do have friends that think like me and believe as I do.How lucky I am! *

3. Learn how to manage your money - Balance a checkbook, live within a budget and make a dent in your student loans. That purse you're dying to have is not as important as good credit.
* Still in the learning progress. Wish to catch up faster. I want to save lots of money! *

4. Know how to order a martini - Or some other adult beverage. Then sit at the bar and enjoy it. Alone.
* Erm...liquor? Yes, I did. But never try of sitting at the bar alone. Should have try it once. *

5. Know how to ask for a raise - This means knowing your worth and underestimating is as bad as overestimating. Have a realistic view of how business and your company in general are doing and be clear on your role on it.
* Practising this all the time since I started my first job. I did this well. Congratulation to myself. *

6.  Get an HIV test - This is as good a place as any to begin taking responsibility for your sexual health.
* Guess that I do not need this. *

7. Take a girls (or boys) trip to Vegas - Watch 'The Hangover' before you go.
* Why Vegas??? *

8. Thank your parents - For everything they did for you. 
* My childhood was perfect. Thanks to my lovely parents. Appreciate everything that you gave me! *

 9. Mentor or volunteer - There are lots people who didn't have it as good as you did. Turn around and lend a helping hand to someone coming up behind you.
* I used to be a good listener :) *

10. Learn how to cook at least one good meal - It will come in handy for date night, dinner or just time alone.
* Basically, I know how to cook. But I stop cooking since I back from study life at Liverpool because of staying with my parents. My mum prepares meals for me. I think I still know how to cook. Haha *

11. Take part in the political process - You can't complain if you don't vote. Be a part of the solution.
* Already registered myself as a voter. Just waiting for the right time. *

12. Know your numbers - Get a baseline health exam and know your family history.
* Not really know about it. Regret that I am still concerning on body weight. *

13. Practise fair fighting - This goes for friends, colleagues and lovers.
* Yes too! *

14. Wait tables - Or some other service industry job. Learn, "The customer is always right" and other axioms that will take you far in life. 
* Never try before, but I know the theory. *

15. Read the paper, cover to cover - At least once; you never know what you'll find. Oh and I mean the one that's actually made from paper.
* I read newspaper...almost everyday before I go for work. But just 10 minutes. Boring to read those political news. But it's time to pay attention on these. *

16. Get a comfy pair of boots - Let them take you around the world. 
*Will get it soon at Taiwan, my next trip! But already turn 25 that time. Still not too late. *

17. Dream BIG! - Then follow those dreams! Remember you are living for you not your parents, teachers, best friends, etc. Don't let their hang-ups hang you up. 
* Seriously, I have never ever think of my dream so far. Do I have a dream now? I did have dreams when I was a kid, but my dreams gone after I grew up. How sad is it? T.T It's time to dream BIG! Still not too late. *

18. Plan your career; prepare for it to change - Sometimes drastically. Be diverse and have a back-up plan. 
* I just changed a new job months ago and glad that I am still happy with it.*
19. Lie in bed all day with the one you love - Learn how to be still together. 
*I am doing this all the times.*
20. Enjoy cheap eats - Don't let your palate become so refined you can't enjoy a $3 bowl of noodles. 
*That's my lunch and dinner always.*
21. Start a blog - Blogs are not just words; they are living, breathing business cards. Blogs also turn into books. What you have to say matters, so let's hear it! 
* I am writing it right now. Still working hard on 'producing' post as much as I can. But sometimes, it's just too lazy. Furthermore, blogging depend on mood and inspiration. My mood and inspiration come once a month now. *
22. Write a 5-year plan - It's not set in stone, rather a rough outline that will move and change with you. But at least have some idea about where you want to be in a few years. 
* Incomplete mission, I would say. *
23. Develop healthy habits - You know how thin you are now, even though you eat copious amounts of whatever you want? That's not magic; that's youth and it will change. Get in the habit of doing right by your body. 
* I am not thin and I am working hard on cutting my weight down lately! I go for jogs every week, hope it works!I wish to jog everyday but the weather not allow. Pray hard for good weather :) By the way, I enjoy jogging *
24. Don't do stupid stuff - Life is hard. Don't make it harder by doing stupid things like drinking and driving. Wanna screw it up right out of the gate? Try having that on your record. Or worse. Don't do it. I'm serious.
* Definitely won't doing stupid things like drinking and driving. Life is precious! I always keep this in mind. Perhaps, shouldn't drink too much also. LOL * 
25. Live in the moment - Because here's the thing; there is beauty everywhere, even after a driving rainstorm. But you won't see it if you're too busy running to the next thing, whatever that is. Slow down. Breathe. Enjoy. 
* Enjoy life as much as I can! *


In conclusion, I have done half of the above (?). Considered PASSED, am I right? :) 

25 isn't that terrible actually, maybe just need to work hard on anti-ageing in order to keep myself young in term of outlook. All in all, 25 is an age where I need to discover and finding who am I really. 

I should say to myself, congratulation of reaching adulthood (soon)! And always LOVE who you are. Love yourself through self acceptance, forgiveness and esteem. 


Let's welcome 25!

Guess what? I had finally changed 'cloth' for my blog! 

Wanted to change it since long time ago and finally I did it. Big clap for myself ! I know this is a simple job but I don't have time and I know this is an excuse :D

New 'cloth' , new style but still an 'old' ME ! 'Old' in term of still the same ME :)

Guess I am really in love with Eiffel tower, searched for Eiffel tower blog template long long time and finally found one that can be applied. Actually did found few but don't know why I just can't applied. Never mind, I still get one and it looks charm with the soft pink color, I'm lovin it !

That's all for today. Will update my blog when I am free and of course before step into the month of December. Oh my god, it's year end again!

Me vs Career

Posted by petsim Ng at 9:11:00 PM 0 comments
“Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.”  ― Groucho Marx

Saw this on web, just feels like it's just nice to use this phrase as the opening of my first October blogspot. Say 'HI' to October ! And gosh, there are 2 more weeks left for October! 

Nothing special recently, others than work. Had been shifted into new environment for a month. So far, not too good nor too bad.

Boss, manager and colleagues treat me quite well. Boss sent me for course even I just joined the company for a week. Truly appreciated. I been employed as a chemist, if I am not mistaken (?). But not much testing that I need to do daily. Basically, my job scope is about quality control, mostly on handling documents. I need to verify testing methods but I don't even know how's the testing is going on. By the way, I am doing R&D as well. R&D without any references and guidance. Sound interesting, but I do not think so.

But thanks God, I still manage to proceed with those testing today. Although it failed several times. And, my testing was finally succeed. I learnt from mistakes.Feels great when I finally get the results. But at the same time, I feels damn regret that didn't pay attention in practical, as well as lecture when I was in college. Now I know that all those knowledge and experiences are actually useful. Suddenly, I feels like I should really go back to college and study well. Perhaps, drag out all my old notes and study again. 

Actually I am still questioning myself today, am I suitable to be in this field? Or am I good enough to be a chemist? Frankly speaking, I never thought of be a chemist when I was a kid, or even when I was a student of Chemistry & Biology. Then why do I choose this course??? Friends that are close with me sure heard of this question before because I kept on asking until today. I still couldn't figure out 'why'. Still the lame reason I think, this course sound 'professional' although it's not my interest.

I know it's too late to regret, however, nothing else can do now others than change my job. But ...... forget about it at the moment. I am still 'fresh'. I am the kind of people that feels insecure when facing uncertainty and stuffs that I am not familiar. Being a chemist make me feels that. That's one of the reasons why am I still questioning myself. I guess, I am lost.

Anyway, life is still move on. I still need to work for life. Fortunately, it's still not too bad. I am trying my best to learn, to adapt and to survive in such environment. Last but not least, I am trying to love my job as well! It's not that difficult for me, because I am tough enough! I can do it! *wink*  

One day, I will be proud to tell you that I am a CHEMIST :)

知足.常乐

Posted by petsim Ng at 11:25:00 PM 0 comments
‘知足常乐’,这句话看似简单,不过明白的人并不多。

从前的我觉得人是贪心的动物,永远都不知足。当然我也一样,我也是正常人。

不过最近我发现,我真的应该知足且感到幸运了。

我没有漂亮的脸孔、魔鬼的身材,但至少我五官端正,还不至于吓到人;

我没有傲人的成绩单,但至少我能顺利地的考取我的学位,骄傲的穿上毕业袍;

我没有富裕的家庭,但至少我吃得饱穿得暖、还有着爱护我的家人;

我没有很高尚的职业,但至少我有一份正当的工作。化验师听起来也不差吧;

我没有可观的收入,但至少我能养活我自己还能给些家用,虽然钱总是不够用;

我没有很受欢迎,但至少我有一群知心、能交心的好知己,好姐妹;

我没有白马王子似的伴侣,但至少我有一个很疼爱我的他,虽然偶尔也会吵吵嘴。

比起其他人,我真的真的很幸运了。

想起几年前我经历了一些挫折,当时的我十分低落,觉得这世界是黑暗的。当时的我几乎放弃了我自己。我还埋怨上天,怪上天怎么那样对待我、怎么对我如此地残忍。

当时的我真的无法接受,无法接受这么的一个我竟然会如此失败。那一段时间,生活过的一塌糊涂,毫无意义。真的无法想象,当时的我怎么那么颓废。

现在回想起,我还真傻啊!那么一点点的挫折就怨这、怨那的,就是没怨自己。还几乎没想过还有人比我更惨、更难过。更没想起其实我拥有的很多。我有一直守护、关心着我的家人,朋友们,其实这已经足够了。如果能让现在的我回到过去,我一定会狠狠的骂自己一顿,狠狠的骂醒我自己。

我只能说,当时的我年少无知、贪得无厌。庆幸的是,我还能站起来,虽然那件事已经成了我人生的一个‘污点’。

随着岁月的增长,我真的领悟到‘知足常乐’这个道理。毕竟年纪大了,懂的想了,也想得更多、更远了。我不得不承认,我老了!不,应该说我长大了!恭喜!:)

现在的我真的很幸运、很幸福。我有爱护我的家人、关心我的朋友们、一份安稳的工作稳定的收入、健康的身体等等。虽然偶尔还会有少许的怨言,埋怨最近吃胖了、睡眠时间不够、工作有点无聊、生活有点沉闷、钱怎么不够用之外,我真的没什么好埋怨了。

真的,我很感谢上天。上天待我不薄,感谢您!也感谢一直陪伴在我身边的人。我的世界因你们而美丽!希望往后的日子,我能生活得越来越精彩。祈求一切顺顺利利!日子只要过得开心就好了。

p/s: 我的文笔真的退步很多了。原本想用优美的文笔正经八百地表达我的感受却发现写出来的是一篇乱七八糟的文章。那些年,华语拿优等的我到底怎么了!不过,想想只不过是一篇blog嘛,何必太认真呢?"知足常乐",至少我还能用华文把自己所想的表达出来 :)

Good bye !

Almost every month I am repeating the same opening, 'time passes so fast'. But this is so true. And too bad, I missed out the August blogpost :( And now, September almost come to the end!

August was meaningful to me. I made an important decision last month. I decided to leave my former company after worked for 9 months, and joined a new company which is near with my house also. But anyway how I am still a chemist :) . Stepped into different industry seem like quite challenging for me. I did struggled when I received the offer, the offer seem like tempting. They provided a better working environment, and of course better pay and better benefits.

Struggled because I had just worked for months in my former company, not even a year. I am still considered fresh and new. Everything has to be start up again once I joined because it's a different industry. Secondly, I am the kind of people whose lazy to adapt to the new environment. And now, I have to start to adapt again :( . Lastly, I met nice boss, nice HOD and nice colleagues in my former company. Feels so lucky that I get to work with them. They are really kind and helpful. Although just worked with them for few months, but I enjoyed every single moments that working together with them. Thanks for teaching me a lot! Appreciated very much! Of course, I feels sad to leave them. It's lucky to have such nice colleagues in my first career. Yeah, I am a lucky girl! :)







Thanks for all the farewell lunch, farewell dinner and gifts. All the best to you guys as well :)

Keep in touch !

Hello, JULY !

Posted by petsim Ng at 10:34:00 PM 0 comments
Oh my god, it's JULY ! I can't believe that I had been worked for 6 months and it's half of a year. I have to admit that time passes just too fast. Just a blink, I am in the month of JULY.

Every month I am asking myself, 'How are you lately?' The answer will be always the same, which is 'So far so good' and ' Not too bad yet too good'. Obviously, I am still not satisfies with my current life. The main reason is the working life. I believe that almost everyone is boring with works, so do I am.

Worked at this company for 6 months. Apart from the pay and the benefits that my company could provided, others are still acceptable for me. Just that, there are some people in my working place totally pissed me off. Forgive me because I really have to call them 'IDIOT'.

I heard a phrase before, a phrase about idiot. The phrase says, never challenge an idiot because idiot will try to bring you down to his/her level and will beat you down with his/her 'experiences'. Their experiences of being so stupid. I would like to vote this as the best quote of the year just because it is so true. I totally agreed with this. Nevertheless, I still can't control myself of being so annoyed and angry when these idiots come and provoke me.

Can't figure out since when I started to feel disgust when I heard those so called 'experienced' people tried to show off their experiences and histories in front of me. They never feel tired or bored of telling all those stories. At the beginning, I was still listened and tried to learnt from their stories. But, recently I was awake, awake from being hypnotized. This is because same dialogues been repeated and repeated for months. The output and results never proved that their experiences are workable. So what? You said you had so many years of experiences in this industry but you never prove it or you can't even prove it to me. Prove it with your actions and not words, please. I know I am fresh and new, but at least I am humble to learn, I am willing to try new things.


My emotional intelligence is still not good enough when come to working place. However, I am trying my best to improve it. I just hope that there are no more idiots in my working places come and provoke me with some stupid things. I am willing to learn if you are really teaching me, don't bull-shitting in front of me any more. I am sick of your stupid face and also your 'experiences'. Luckily, I still have a lots of helpful and kind colleagues that are willing to help me. Thanks, guys! You guys are awesome! 


Hope that JULY is a good month for me. Pray hard for a lucky and smooth JULY ! 


Officially say Hi to JULY ! :)








p/s: And yeah, it's time for relax and enjoy myself! I am going to Cameron with friends this coming weekend. Hope can blog about the trip when I back. See ya ~

A date with MICKEY MOUSE !

Posted by petsim Ng at 11:43:00 PM 0 comments
Time flies, it's the last week of the month of May. A big clap for myself because this is the second blog post for this month. Managed to squeeze a bit of times for blogging on Monday night. Really hope that can spend more times on this because I enjoy sharing every precious moments of mine with all of you! 

I had a wonderful weekend last week. I spent my weekend with my dearest family, my dear and MICKEY MOUSE ! 

 It was Saturday, there were massive crowd at Mid Valley Megamall due to PC expo and this awesome event - MICKEY MOUSE through the years. I am not a big big fans of MICKEY MOUSE, but I still felt excited to see them. Purposely wore a MICKEY MOUSE shirt to meet the cutest mouse in the world :D


Can you see the crowd ? Everyone is crazy about MICKEY MOUSE !


The classic one ~


Can I have 1 of this cabinet in my house, to store MICKEY MOUSE? 


mini clothes on sale XD

This doesn't look like MICKEY MOUSE, look alike lion king. haha...

How I wish I could owe this! It's so lovely ! 


The best mouse in the world - MICKEY MOUSE !!! 


So cute, I meant the MICKEY MOUSE !


My lovely parents ~


My youngest brother that appeared for the first time in my blog  ^^

My boy ! *Muacks*

I wonder how many mouses are there in the centre court of Mid Valley. I wish to snap all of them with my phone, but there are really a lot! The artists of all these creative art pieces of MICKEY MOUSE are really awesome. Thumbs up for them ! I spent most of my times on camwhoring with MICKEY MOUSE, while my parents and my brothers went shopping at PC expo. Thanks to my dear that become my photographer of the day :)  Wish there is a SNOOPY exhibition one day in KL soon! 

And next, dinner time!

Decided to have dinner at my uncle's restaurant that located at Klang. It was a belated Mother's day and advanced Father's day celebration dinner. Although the timing was not that appropriate, but it still meant a lot for me and my family :) 











My all times favourite ~ 


Red wine after dinner. The Eiffel tower shaped bottle is so adorable ~

All the dishes are so delicious and we finished it all of course. Thanks to my chef uncle that prepared and cooked such a wonderful dinner for us. Happy to meet you as well, uncle :)


Happy Mother's Day & Happy Father's Day to my lovely parents ! We love you forever ! <3

Enjoyed the wonderful moments with my family and loved one. For me, the most important thing are my parents that always in pink of health, my brothers that live happily with their career and studies, my loved one that always care and love me! Feels great to have all of you beside me. Love you all ~ Muacks...

Good night, Monday!

Opps, it's May ! :)

Posted by petsim Ng at 10:53:00 PM 0 comments
It's May ! And this is my first post for May. Become more and more lazy recently, no, should say more and more busy :p .My blog become so dusty and now I only 'clean' it, once a month. However, it's better than I just abandoned  it. 

Life goes so normal. Working, working and working. What a boring life but I can't get rid of it. But there's something that make me so exciting since last night. Airasia is having free seats promotion now and we managed to buy flight tickets to Taiwan ! Yeah, finally we make it !Planned to have trip to oversea since our Krabi + Phuket trip and we also wish to travel to Taiwan long time ago. And yet, we are going to make it become real next year !


At first, I thought we need to spend few hours for buying flight tickets because of the attractive pricing for travelling oversea but Choy bought it just within 1 hour time. How lucky we are ! Thanks a lot to Choy that willing to spend times on this and also pay for us in advanced :) 

I told my parents that I am going to travel to Taiwan next year but I get scolds from my mum T.T She said it's kind of wasting to spend money on travelling since I had just worked for 5 months. She said I should keep all my saving for urgent and future purposes. I just keep silent, walked away and still enjoying the excitement. I knew that it's for my own good when my mum always mumbling about how I spent and how much can I save from my salary. I never feels annoyed about these, because I understand her quite well. But mum, youngsters (are we still in youngsters level? I guess so, haha) like us like to explore and travel around because we are still young, free and energetic. If we didn't travel at this age, then when can we go for travelling especially with friends when we are getting older and older? When we getting older , we will say maybe we can go travelling when we have earned enough. Then after we earned enough, maybe will think of getting marry first. Then after we had get married, we will think of saving up for our children. In the end, as we getting older and older,  we will maybe say, it's better to stay at home to take care of grandchildren or we are too old and weak to travel around! I have the points, right?

So, I would like to tell my parents, I am not spending unwisely, I just hope to explore and gains experiences all over the world when I am still young. I will still save money for my future, don't worry.  Furthermore, I am not going for luxury trip. I think this trip most probably will spent my half years saving ? (might be lesser than that? ). Anyway, flight ticket had already in hand now and it's time to plan. Can't wait for our Taiwan trip that falls on January 2013!  

Taiwan, see you on January 2013 !!! :D

Melacca and foodsss ~

It's Wednesday night! As usual, a blue working day. Knew something not really good in my office but I don't feels like talking about it, because I don't really like to be rude ^^ Let's talk something nice today. I had a wonderful weekend last week, I went to Melacca - the historical city for a day trip with my friends. Yes, we craved for foods again! 

Voyage Cottage Lodge, our accommodation of the trip

Recommended by my colleague. Overall, it's not bad. The price is reasonable. The lodge is near with Jonker street. Small but comfort and clean. 


Once we checked in, the first thing came into our mind is FOODsss ~ So, our first meal in Melacca would be  satay celup. Thought of having satay celup at the famous restaurant, Capitol Satay Celup which was within our walking distance. But the queue was so so so long when we reached the restaurant and it was just 5 something. I think we need to wait 2 hours for our turn if we are really waiting there. We gave up of waiting so long times and decided to go another restaurant, Ban Lee Siang which is also famous but we need to drive there.

And finally, we were here for satay celup ! 

Everyone were busy grabbing for 'jackpot', which are those nice foods. 9 of us ate 203 sticks, not overreach, right?  Save some spaces in stomach for the next food, which is the food that I long waited, mille crepe.

The superb delicious mille crepe !
The original flavour of mille crepe

One of the MUST EAT foods in Melacca. The famous mille crepe at Nadeje Patisserie Cafe which is located at Dataran Pahlawan. I never ever tried a slice of mille crepe for the 2x years. And finally, I was here for it! Mille crepe is a type of French cake made of many layers of very thin pancakes sandwiching a sweet cream concoction. So I can't called it 'cake', am I right? ^^ I wish to try all flavour but too sad I only have 1 stomach :p. I ordered the original flavour. The mille crepe goes for RM9 per piece, quite reasonable. The mille crepe is incredibily delicious. It's rich and creamy but not too sweet. I can felt the layers of creams melting in my mouth. Delicious The Mille Crepe in Nadeje was one of the things that we planned to eat in Melacca and it did not disappoint. Thumbs up!

After fulfilled our satisfaction, we went for a walk at Jonker Street and tried to hunt some foods there. Jonker Street was crowded due to weekend. 

Shopping time !

We tried cendol there but it was so so only maybe because it's too sweet for me. After a long day, we ended our food hunting of the day.

The next day, we have several plans for our foods hunting session. Eventually plan A failed and we proceed to plan B. Plan B is having food that are not locally from Melacca,西刀鱼圆粉. The noodles and fish balls are nice but the services there wasn't that nice. However, we were there for foods :)

Walked around the typical tourists hotspot before our next food hunting. The weather was so HOT as usual.
  
The girls ~

Another shopping time at 三叔公, a local delicacy shop in Jonker Street


Now I know why 三叔公 has so many customers because they have many fortune cats in the shop ! LOL. Anyway, they look really cute and adorable ^^ 


After shopping, it's makan time again ! Had our lunch at Ole Sayang Nyonya Restaurant. 




Asam fish, sambal prawns, chicken rendang and vege. 






Waited about an hour only can have our meal. Overall, the foods are nice, just that the fish was not fresh. And that's the end of our weekend trip at Melacca. I think I need to jog or swim more after the trip. How I wish I can eat more but wouldn't gain weight? >.<




What's the next ? 


Cameron !!! Get ready, my friends ~ ^^

工作.生存.我

Posted by petsim Ng at 11:40:00 PM 2 comments
           转眼间,踏入职场已经四个月了。日子尚短,不过足以让我见识到职场上黑暗的一面。我是一名化验师,一名毫无经验及正在学习当中的化验师。刚踏入新的人生阶段,期盼着平淡的职业生涯。工作范围说难不难,说简单也不简单,目前还可以应付得来,只不过工作的日子真的有些沉闷。半天时间呆在办公室,其余的时间呆在实验室,就这样一天就过去了。这四个月来一直都过着相安无事的日子,每天都像一般朝九晚五的上班族到公司上班。下班时间就和同事一起喝喝茶,聊聊天,逛逛街,看看戏。不然就宅在家。以为就这样安安稳稳地过日子,领一份微薄的薪水就算了,从没想像过这平稳日子的背后却是一片不同的天空。

        社会的丑陋我已经见识过了,也努力的从中学习。最近,我也庆幸的见识了职场上黑暗且险恶的一面,当然也领悟了职场上的生存之道。不得不运用某明星的名言,我太天真,太傻了。读书生涯都没有一帆风顺了,更何况是职业生涯?原以为只要乖乖地呆上一两个年头,换一换公司再继续往上爬就算了。如今觉得有难度吧!是时候打起精神,认真的看待职场上的种种了!

   曾经听别人说,职场如战场。以前的我听了都觉得会不会太夸张了?现在的我终于明白了!从前单纯的我对自己说,只要把自己的本份做好,适时表现一下自己,谦虚学习虚心问教,少说话多做事,就能生存下来,今天终于知道这样是不够的!

       我竟然忘了,有一种人叫做小人!以往求学时期的我太幸运了,一直都有贵人的扶助,让我忘了这世上还有小人的存在!今时今日我终于遇见了。庆幸的是,我还没被小人害得很惨,不然真的"死了"都不知怎么一回事。别人常说,日防夜防,家贼难防。我说,日防夜防,小人难防!就连小人是谁,我都不知道。你说,是不是很可怕?!有位同事说得很对,并不是把本份做好就能安然无事。只要有小小的错误出现就会被小人无限的夸大,小人还很大可能在背后捅上几刀或在高层面前加盐加醋。欲加之罪,何患无辞! 真的无法了解,这社会怎么会有这些闲人?工作太无聊?是我锋芒太露?还是小人们无事生非?我想,第一和第三个原因还比较合理。

   我想,是时候在我的办公室摆一摆风水阵,或打一打小人。唉,真不敢相信一向我行我素的我竟然变得如此迷信?不敢想像,拿着鞋子一边拍打一边咒骂小人的我是如此的丑陋!我可不想年纪轻轻就变得像泼妇一样,平日的我可是很随和,很斯文的。以后在公司还是小心为妙。无论说话还是做事,一定要小心翼翼,被别人捉到错误或痛脚就难以生存下去了!总结来说,我的职场生存之道排名第一的是,提防小人(们)!


请原谅我粗俗的骂一句,笑里藏刀的小人们去死吧!别来惹我,不然我也会让你(们)死得很难看!别以为新人好欺负,我可不是这么容易让你(们)得逞的人!我会以牙还牙的,你(们)看着!



p/s: 好久都没用华语来写东西了,都生疏,退步了。用华语才能充分的表达我心中的不满与不忿。发泄完的感觉真不错!祝我工作顺利,贵人来相助,小人远离我!!!保佑,保佑……

Awesome Krabi + Phuket trip !

Posted by petsim Ng at 9:17:00 PM 1 comments
It's been ages I didn't come here and I realized there was only 1 post for year 2012. And posts about my Europe trip had stopped for so long time. Ya, I am too lazy ! :(

Just realized March almost end. Anyway, I am back today ! A little bit updates about myself for the second post of 2012. I went for Krabi and Phuket, Thailand last month with my dearest friends. It was an awesome trip and we did enjoyed it a lot !

This was our first oversea trip. Depart on 12 Feb, spent 5 days 4 nights at Krabi and Phuket. Thanks for those who working hard on this trip. Those planning jobs are really tiring. I felt so lucky that I was the one who just followed and enjoyed along the trip. Hope that I can contribute a bit for the next trip. :)

Patong beach 

Night market session


Nice beach with clear water

Wat Chalong 

Finally! after tried for so many times. haha...

Really enjoyed along the trip. Beautiful beach, cold sea water, awesome scenes, relaxing thai massage, delicious foods and joyful times!Oh,ya. Had my first snorkelling experience in my life time. I think I won't try it for the next time. Because of the fishes ! In conclusion, I still can't face my fear :( Those fishes are really scary for me. I swear, no more snorkelling, except that there are no fishes under the water.

Fishes under sea are not pretty and cute for me :(

Krabi and Phuket are really a nice place to travel. Just the weather is too HOT ! Getting darker after back from the trip, luckily didn't get sun burn. Hope that can go somewhere that is cold next time. 

Next plan, TAIWAN !
