|A retreat for the well-being of my mind from the insanity of the life that is mine.|

Currently listening to: Somewhere I Belong - Linkin Park
*Bleargh* Haven't updated my blog for some time now but, holy mother o' God, i've been really putting in the overtime at work this week... As i speak (or - that is - write) i have just arrived home, at 11pm, from my miserable existence as an IT audit officer... or team leader (why!!!??? Why did i volunteer!!???)... No. Wait. I'm in Quality Control now...
Well… actually, to tell you the truth its not so bad. Five reasons:
1. I’m doing a variety of different jobs each day, and therefore getting a feel for working on a (Malaysian may I add) IT project.
2. My knowledge of KL’s insane maze of roads is getting a helluva lot better now that I have to travel around so much.
3. I’m getting to know the bosses – future employment in the offing?
4. There are better looking girls on the team now! ;p
5. I have purpose.
Ok, enough about work.
Hrmm, time for a quick rundown on the last few days… Saturday was pretty happening! Went out with Joa and her PWC colleagues to watch The Last Samurai at KLCC. Great movie! A little slow at times but I really enjoyed the time period they had chosen and the central ‘honor’ theme around which the movie was based… Somehow I felt like I could relate to Captain Algren (Tom Cruise) the most. Not really sure why, although I think the copious whisky drinking, cynicism and overall depression play a good part in that thought… Ken Watanabe also played a great role with his character Katsumoto by intricately balancing the facets of ruthless warlord and beloved leader to near perfection. On a side note, don’t you just love those insanely psychopathic faces which samurai tend to have when in battle? Awesome. Go watch it!
Whoops, back to my backtracking… in the evening we went to Bar Savanh yet again with Joa and her posse of friends as well as Leonard (plus his gf – finally!) and Zamil. Thus followed a little wine, plenty of conversation, a large helping of mamak, and a long retelling of my various injuries to all who were present… Meh. A good night all in all… (as far as I can remember anyway) ;)
Other than that, my entire week consisted of work… look ma! I’m in the labour pool! ;p
Geez I really don’t have much time these days… I haven’t even checked my email for a week now! Not to mention writing that NLC plan!!! ARGH!!! This will not end well i think... :(
Want to type some more but I’m feeling the need to crawl into my bed… that, and I think all that gym in the last two evenings is starting to cause my arms to rip from my joints a la Boon.
Oh yeah, found this on Byron’s website (as I always do) – a Zodiac + Blood Type chart!
Meh. Meh, i say!
LIBRA & B-Type
Personality: Your bright personality shines on people. They appreciate your honesty and you hardly ever argue with others. Be careful whom you show your selfish nature to because it will separate you from many. You are a strong character. (i'm honest? Naaaah... although i do try not to argue with others. Selfish? Well, aren't we all once in a while?)
Love Tendency: Although your selfishness is apparent in your personality, relationships are a different story. You are humble to your girlfriend. You easily give up your place if your girlfriend chooses another man over you. There's sort of a distance you keep from women. That's why you don't tend to fall deeply in love. (There's that selfishness thing again! Am i really so apparently selfish??? *ahem* The rest is true though... Not too sure about the falling deeply in love thing - maybe someday? [yeah, and i'm a 6 foot carebear])
Life: You don't like to bother people with trivial matters and that goes the other way around. Concerning your health, you will have some back problems, which you abused in your younger years. (what the…? Erm, first part is true though...)
