Ah Beng and Ah Lian September 28, 2008

Posted by lenesheartsong in Uncategorized.

Bored of Ah Beng and Ah Lian’s jokes?
Here is a new one.
At least I haven’t seen it before.

Ah Lian called big brother Ah Beng over the telephone.

Lian: “Ah Beng kor, I can’t get my new jig saw puzzle fixed, mah-chiam all the edges cannot fix together, lah.”
Beng: “Jig saw puzzle si mi picture, ha?”
Lian: “The box show a big rooster, kanna like the one in talkingcock.com.”
Beng: “Okay, lah, okay, lah. I come over to tor-long lu, lah.”

Ah Beng arrives at Ah Lian’s place, where she happily leads him to the kitchen table where the jigsaw puzzle is.
Ah Beng examines the puzzle and says, “Si ghee na, si bay gong, put back the corn flakes into the box, lah.”

All in a day September 15, 2008

Had a pretty interesting day. That’s how life is like in London. Never say you are bored, because there’s too many events to go and things to see and you’ll never have enough time.

But I am really really tired and I still need to work tomorrow. It seems like I’ve not had a good long rest for a while, despite the fact that I grounded myself last weekend and didn’t go anywhere at all. It may well need a lot more weekends to uproot this exhaustion.

Here are some pictures from Hamleys, Covent garden market and The Mayor’s Thames festival which celebrates London and its river, but I’m not sure why!

Both river banks were crowded. There was parade at one bank, and other stuffs such as the korean new moon festival at the other side. Something like our Kuching Festival. There were stalls of food from around the world, art works, jewelleries, etc. We were too tired to be exploring all of them so we had dinner and just went home straight after. There was fireworks display but we didn’t stay to watch. We could actually watch the fireworks from my window. The perfect spot!

Work was quite pleasant today, surprisingly.
But I’ve been careful enough to avoid her nerves.
In fact she was “shouting” at those who were not in.
As long as it’s not me, that’ll do.

Sis has arrived.
She’s tired. And so am I.
She’ll be leaving for Cardiff in a couple days.
I feel bad for her for having to be on her on, as I had friends with me when I first came.
I also feel bad for my parents.
Now it’ll be just the two of them.
And for my dog too, one less people to play with him.

My new MEP came today too and I was quite delighted.
Just because it is brand new.
Simple as that.
New stuffs are cool. ;)

Honey, you did not blow up the shop. September 10, 2008

Posted by lenesheartsong in Uncategorized.

Being inexperience in closing up, I was handed over the responsibility just like that, because some of those who were supposed to do it were not around and the one who was, wanted to go off exactly at closing time. Me, and the locum had to stay back to receive a delivery which was late. The locum, being a locum, does not take the key. So me, being me, the KULI, have to do it. It was yesterday, anyway.

And then we were ready to go.

Locum: I’m leaving the lights on.

Me: OK.

Then I activated the alarm system and ran out quickly. I have also switched off the lights.

Locum: I said leave the lights on!

Uh oh. I thought he was leaving them on so I can see.

I turned back and tried to find THAT switch and it was pitch black. I couldn’t see a thing. Well, the lights were off, weren’t they?

Then… I accidentally turned on something. But it was still dark.

Me: I couldn’t find that switch. I couldn’t find it!

Locum: Just come out quickly. Quickly!

(The alarm was beeping all this while, which contributed to my nervousness.)

We closed the shop successfully and said goodbye.

God knew what I did. The locum didn’t.

Because I kept quiet.

I was scared.

And I did enough stupid things for the day.

So yeah, I kept quiet.

(I didn’t turned off that switched that I turned on, and I have no idea what was switched on.)

I was quite worried and I called up a friend and told her about it.

When I got home I was still worried and I wanted to talk about it.

God knows what I switched on!

What if the shop blew up in the middle of the night?

What if I turned on the heater and it got so hot that it sparked a fire and burnt down the shop?

All funny things playing in my head.

But something struck me.

I’d better not be leaving evidence behind. My confession would be the most powerful evidence against me.

If something happens the police would be coming for me.

I don’t want to dig my own grave now.

And I’ve already told a friend. One is enough.

I better shut up. ;)

**I have no choice but to go to bed with that fear and leave everything in God’s hands.**

So this morning I was to open up.


Nothing happened.

The counter lights were shining brightly though.


This is a happy post! September 8, 2008

Today was a beautiful day, because my tutor was away.
For four days it will be, and everybody shouted out with glee.
I hope she never comes back again, because she is such a pain.
Please, do us a favour. Please, keep us sane.

And don’t ever, ever come back.
Please retire.


When my tutor wasn’t around, it was the best working environment, the happiest moment since I started work.
Everybody was just so relaxed. It was so pleasant.
And without knowing it, it was time to go home! See!


Anyway, some smart ass decided to post a thread on the company intranet.
He asked how did everyone find their pre-reg?

As I expected, no one reply to his post.
My dear, who would have the nerve to stand up and say how badly their pre-reg is going?
Now, now, I know what you are trying to say.
“What makes me know that it is not GREAT?”
Well I just know.
And saying it is great is a great big enormous LIE.
Except maybe.. for a few of them.
I said a few. ;)

So well..
Guys, your tutors are watching…
Better be careful about what you say…
Don’t say I didn’t warn ya. :)

What I learn at work September 3, 2008

Tutor not setting a good example but I’m in no position nor in my right mind to point out.
And when I made a mistake it needed to be recorded.
When they made a mistake, they just waved it off.
Best thing to do? Just shut up?

It is true that the ones at a lower position would never be heard by the ones with higher positions. Same as the less experienced will always be told off by the more experienced. As if they are absolutely right, but you know, accidents do happen. All the time.

Working life is ugly. And human nature is ugly. To be precise, you see a lot of two-faced. If you’re lucky, you can wriggle through these unscathed. If you’re firm enough, you can avoid taking sides. (I’m beginning to take sides by the way.)

Anyway, I’ve been so so tired. Worked half day today and I spent my afternoon watching a movie and snoozing off. When I woke up it was time for the others to come home. I ate my dinner at 9-ish and it’s 11pm now I haven’t done anything that I’m supposed to do. No study done. No reading up. No evidence. Nothing. And it is time to sleep. I just don’t know where has time slipped away.

Also when Amazon was being amazingly amazing. City-link was a complete opposite. My parcel didn’t come as promised.


They say, what happened once may not happen again. But what happened twice will happen thrice!

I feel the need to whine, on and on for a year.
It’s not just me.
I know I’m not supposed to do this, being a professional! Enough said.
But nah, I just can’t live with it.

I’m expected to know everything I don’t know.
I’m expected to read people’s mind. I mean really, she accused me of not doing something I “should” do that she wanted me to do when she didn’t even tell me a thing.
I’m expected to be everywhere, doing everything.
She always wanted me to come the instant she calls out, when I’m in the midst of another task.
Man I was half way through the blisters and I should just leave the de-blistered tablets lying around?
When I was doing the first task, she wanted me to do the second task. Then she wanted me to do the third task.
I’ve got a pocket full of unfinished tasks!

Hello! I cannot split into septets! I know no magic. I don’t read mind either. Neither can I study hard at home after a long and hard day at work. SIGH.
