Hi Friends!! I had cleared my annual leave from my company for a total of 2 1/2 days, and just nice, my leave coincide with the public holiday on 1st October, which means to say I will have a total of 6 days off!! So happy! And today, i am on half day leave, which means to say I will be able to leave my office at 1pm. It's 10am now, and I am counting down the time for me to leave!! Well, I will be away in Malaysia tonight all the way to next Tuesday 30th September. It's time to unwind, relax and just chill!! And I am looking forward to it! This would be the only time I would be able to truely relax myself and be away from the fast paced life of Singapore and back into the slow paced life of Malaysia. And the best thing is? I will also be able to spend time with my boyfriend. Killing two birds with one stone. This is the way I like things to be! Back in Singapore on Tuesday 30th September 2008, and still on holiday until Thursday 2nd Oct 2008. Plans had been made with some friends on the public holiday to go out for dinner at this one place that I had never been to for a very long time. It's so great how my life is going, and I am really looking forward to this long break! =) Don't miss me guys! =X Well, take care everybody and happy holidays to all Malaysians and Singaporeans too!! What are your plans for this coming public holidays, or is there any point in your life whereby you had a long holiday although only a few days of annual leave was cleared? Share your experiences with me! Till next time! Ciao!

Sure I was . Before I came! Lol. Now I realised that I am just so insignificant in his heart, I am not. I am regretting clearing so many days of leave to come up here to accompany him only to find out that I take a back seat to everything in his life

Hello Angelia! Do I know you? LOL. Anyway, when you said you are on a half day leave this morning when you are in the office (yea, sadly people, I am having an internship in the company she is in, hahaha), I heard "Do you know that we are having Half Day today?" and was ecstatic. I felt so cheated when I found out that it's you who is going on a half day leave and not the WHOLE COMPANY having half day leave. =( Too bad I might not be able to join you people on 1st Oct for the yummy food, but next time, maybe. HAHA. Anyway, Happy Holidays people, or at least, Happy Weekends for some. =)

What do you think? HOw DARE you say that you don't know me! Lol Watch your appraisal grades hor!! =D Well, you have got to start sharpening your listening skills. For Mylotter's records, I did not state that WE are having half day today, but rather, I said that I am on half day leave today! You have got to listen carefully next time round! Why would you feel cheated when I did not even say that you are having half day! Lol. You can always choose to forgo your mother to join your subordinates for dinner! Why couldn't you? Hehe.. I am naughty I know. Well, enjoy your date with your mum on 1st October! And yes, Happy Mylotting to you JS! My new Mylotter!

Hehe it's easy actually. There is this 1 calender online that advise you to take leave on each day so that it coincide with the public holidays, which means to say you will get more days of rest consecutively but clearing only one or two days leave at each time. Well it's tough to be a superwoman each time.. Lol, if it carries on i believe i will soon die of exhausation before the year is up. Rest and rest that's the way I like things to be. I don't like stress but work well under pressure. Weird hor! Lol The only thing I don't like about going Malaysia for so long is that there is no internet access over at my bf's kampung and I will be at home alone for 2 whole days. What a waste of time hor, when I could be MYlotting, making friends and earning money at the same time! Hehe I am in the middle of convincing him to throw me in a cybercafe for the 10 hours for the two days. And I could Mylot till I drop! AIYA who cares celebrate what as long as there is a reason to celebrate, if you get what i mean. Lol, I can even celebrate both if time allows! I just love holidays! Well, not going Hans, but going to the hawker centre there for 'zhu chou'.. If I am not wrong, there would be a total of 10 people going. It will be such a nice gathering. A long time of gathering whereby this experience was gone like 5-6 years back. Same to you! Have fun! Happy Children Day (are you still one?) and Happy Hari Raya!! Tae care!

haha.. I have seen on the newpaper too, teaching and advising ple how to maximise their leave.. But i dun think i need to plan any because i have got no annual leave and not much commitments with my work too.. I can go anytime i like, so whether it's public holiday or what, it does not really concern me too much.. hehe =D SO i guess this break is just nice for u, so that u can recover from your exhausation, and be a super woman once again.. haha Yeah, rest and rest is the way i like my life to be too, that's y i'm working freelancing.. haha =D STress and working under pressure are 2 different things, because pressure doesn't mean it's stress.. lol =D Get what i mean?? hehe SInce u are visiting your bf, y will u be home alone for 2 days over there?? Won't he be accompanying u?? Or his parents?? 10hrs over 2 days in a cyber cafe, are u sure u can 'tahan' with the internet speed over there, and not ending up smashing the computers there.. hehe YEah, i understand what u mean, but i will rather celebrate children's day, because it's a day to be free and easy, plus, kids will always be the happiest of all with no worries except for homwwork.. haha What's 'zhu chou'?? hehe =D ANother gathering for u, this time with old frenz, what a good timing after spending quality time with bf, and when u are back, u get to catch up with old frenz too ^_^ ANyway, take care and enjoy your trip there ^_^ Remember not to miss me ya.. lol

Freelancing sure sounds good! Lol, you get your rest days as and when you feel like having them, and there is no need for you to clear any leaves or whatsoever as you all don't have the advantages there! But then if you choose to, you will have 365 days of leave, which is always better than our 14 days of annual leave anytime!! How about teaching me how to freelance, so that I could leave my full time job!!?? I am sure looking forward to doing that! Firing my boss! Wahhahaha! There is no choice for us. We will have to maximise our leaves to get the maximum rest days ever. It's not that much of a difference, but it feels like it makes a difference/ Lol afterall, no matter how we plan and strategise we are still clearing 14 days of leave. It's just a matter of fact that we are being hard on ourselves where there's no leave, and later on to really rest and relax the week ahead! I will be a super woman once again when I am back!! YEah!! Exactly the way I like things to be. And it will be marvellous to use work to get my mind off some matters. Well, in Malaysia there is only day off for them and that is during Sunday (which so happens to be our 14th month anniversary day!) And guess what it would be our first opportunity to celebrate that special day. Lol, but sad to say he had disappointed me badly and we ended up NOT celebrating it AT ALL! I was alone at his home for two whole days, and on Sunday whereby right now we are supposed to be out celebrating, we were only at the temple for a GRAND total of 1 hour! And it's back home to accompany his family. GREAT way to celebrate our first opportunity of celebrating our anniversary huh? I am soo disappointed. And do you know also, that to come to this cybercafe for 1 hour or so ago from his family, I have to get into a BIG fight with him just to do so? Gosh~ I just HATE liars!!! Liar!! I won't smash the computers. I am not that babaric. Lol there are others ways of doing so. And that is to release a virus to down their entire network system. PSST and I will do that as long as I am pissed enough. And I must say that I am super pissed off right now. Needless to say, he will be surely saying bye to me after this incident./. But then, I am past the point of caring any longer! If I am so insignificant in his heart, he can jolly well be the same in my heart. I am not CARING any longer! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH MAN! Children's day is a day only to celebrate when we are younger. There are times when I wish that I am back to childhood days, whereby everything seems so perfect and where by everything seems to be so invincible. Now I am just mentally tired.. and that is bad considering that I am just 22 years old. Well Happy children day to you my dear 23 years old friend!! Zhu Chai is when your order the dishes and they are freshly cooked for you on the spot. YOu surely knows it if you are SIngaporean. Lol, you can see this in virtually most coffeeshops during the nights! Don't tell me you don't know what's that!! Lol! WEll, take care my friend and happy mylotting!!
