All right, I survived Monday! With two hours at home, plus an hour of very interrupted sleep in the office– I kept hearing people walk pass me and say “Oh! Cruz is sleeping here!” Ya. I’m sleeping.. I really appreciate if you’d whisper. No one knows how to talk softly anymore?
Thought it’d be a super grouchy monday, waking up early and having 101 things to do.. But hey! I was amazingly upbeat. Wonder it’s got to do with the weekend chocolate overdose..
Or maybe it’s the great things happening to the people around me:
-Jan‘s got her own room at her new workplace! Hello! She’s a Marketing Executive!
- Arthover has left his old job and seeking greener pastures.
However at the other end, Weibin finally knew what it was like to fall down in her own toilet. Meanwhile, Esmond’s heartwrenching MSN nick read “Dead without dying“. Shucks.
Besides the mindless chatter which took up a really huge chunk of my Monday schedule, I did some production stuff- yup, the things i’m paid to do.. and settled a couple of mundane, but absolutely necessary tasks:
-E-filed my income tax returns… Hey! 2004′s earnings are higher than 2003′s! Woohoo! *Por bee por bee* 2005 is a good year too!
-Settled my credit card bills (finally and correctly)… Stupidly sent a cheque dated Feb 2004 a few weeks ago. Payment rejected, charged duno how much for “non payment of minimum amount due” and got a “gentle reminder” that this incident would be brought to the attention of the Credit Bureau, cos under the Banking Act (Chapter 19), all banks are required to submit their customers’ credit records to the bureau.
I am so scared.

Here I am, as usual, surfing the net and watching videos at my pc while everyone else is asleep. Hmmm.. Realised I’m beginning to operate by GMT.. That’s 8 hours behind Singapore by the way.
Somehow, I foolishly clicked on http://www.vuitton.com/ and had myself planning another trip to LV.
Been wanting to change my wallet for ages. Still remember how I walked into LV @ Taka, chose a Monogram Porte-Billets 10cc and attempted to pay by NETS. “Huh? Cannot ah?!”
Fortunately, Huiyi was with me and she got a chance to flex her credit card. Yup, that was then.. Just started working.. Didn’t earn enough to own a card, and still wanna buy LV wallet. Haha. Oh! But that sorta convinced people I’m not the kind who carries “LVs” bought at Chatuchat…
Part of me desperately trying to convince myself it’s a ridiculously overpriced piece of canvas+leather. The other part of me is craving to reach for my card and present it to the snobbish salespeople (well..not all, but most!) at LV.
Cruztacean’s First Anniversary
3 April 2005 Sunday | 1:55 | -
Arrived at Liang Seah Street 30 mins late.. *Oops*
It all started last year at Suntec when Steff, Sally and Yumei said they wanted to set up a club for me. Within 24 hours, a yahoo group was set up… A name was confirmed… Club tee shirts were made… And everybody brought the house down at the Golden Mike Awards one month later.
364 days later, we had a steamboat dinner and cut a huge strawberry cake to mark the occasion.
The folks at Cruztacean took loads of polaroids and presented me with an album scribbled with their greetings. Guess I have to do some self reflection on my image and positioning when more than half of them wished me good luck in mahjong! Haha.
Thank you guys for the wonderful dinner.
Chocs = Happy Food

Was browsing some papers and magazines, which coincidentally touched on depression. Which led me to search for “symptoms of depression” on the net…
Feeling sad- sometimes..
Feeling restless- sometimes..
Feeling tired- sometimes..
Taking a long time to get to sleep- yeap..
Less interested in people and activites- Sort of..
Sleeping too much- YES!
Decreased appetite- Nope
Decreased weight- I wish!
Suicidal thoughts- None at all
Waking up too early- NO WAY!
Been feeling a little strange the last couple of days. Erm, been feeling less interested in the people and things around me… Not keen on doing anything… Feeling irritated at the slightest things…
Getting quite disturbed by this…
I should be pretty happy! Doing nights.. Winnning $198 @ mahjong..
Ruling out “depression” after a couple of online tests.
Maybe it’s the pain in the left toe from the stupid fall in the toilet..
Maybe I’m suffering from some sleeping disorder..
Maybe I haven’t been in a relationship for too long.. you know how some over-aged bachelors and spinsters whine and gripe at every thing?
Maybe cos I did my sums and realised I can’t afford a SLK in the short run..
Maybe I have too much free time on my hands?
Or maybe I just happened to have the luck to rub shoulders with all the idiots in the world! Hahaha..
Hmmm.. Pondering while I’m munching chocs. Some ingredient in chocolate is supposed to make ya happy. Hey is choc an aphrodisiac too?
Btw, the C******y choc with roasted almonds tastes really bad.
I want a SLK! Any colour will do…

After much delay (much delay is understated. after a freaking damn long delay).. I finally made my way to one of the three driving centres to inform the relevant people that Teng Chee Yong does not have a driving license, and wishes to possess one. I shall not disclose the actual location in case I cause any panic to the residents nearby. (oh by saying that.. Ubi is out of the picture.. and since I don’t live in the west… so.. erm..)
Really have to credit Jan.. She’s been haunting me like a pontianak for the past 3 weeks! She’s bent on getting me enrolled before she starts her job on Apr 1st. In a way, I really have to thank her and V2 for dragging me out of bed on this rainy Thu, else things will never ever be done.
Right, my final theory test is on 5 May, and I’ve booked $700+ worth of lessons to commence end May.. Hey, not trying to delay here.. No slots free till then..
Meantime, *SLK SLK!*
I’m going to spend $2 every week *SLK SLK!*
and hope I strike toto *SLK SLK!*
I want a SLK! Any colour will do…
