A Lazy Update

it’s my second post of the year and we are nearly entering the third week of 2012. dang! when i track back my blog statistic last year i calculated that i only blogged a total of 63 posts where January was the most with 12 posts and July was the most pathetic with only ONE post. kns. then i remember, in July alone i had been to four different places either on holidays or work. i hardly have time to blog. okay. hear. hear. excuses!!! but after subtracted the total into 12 months i did blogged around 5 posts a month. wasn’t that bad afterall. it’s like once a week with 1-2 more extra. and why do i mention all this statistic again? digressing much!! and now i’ve forgotten my purpose of this post. kns!!!

i have been so busy with work since the first day of working day this year. hardly breath. hence the lack of updates. even as i am composing this post right now i have to refer to my diary for what has happen the passed weeks. not much i can use here cos they are all work related T__T sigh!

hmmm…. what about a stupid incident? for the first time in being a hand phone owner of my life, i dropped my phone into the toilet bowl one day. yes. i dropped my Iphone4 into the toilet bowl after flushing!! my reflex action worked a little too slow that it already touched the bottom when i picked it up in that split second. i got panicked! the first thing that came into my mind – HAIRDRYER! but knowing the not so smart phone, how can i open it up without the specific screwdriver? *cry* the casing was all wet. thank goodness my casing was the type that covers the whole body. but still…. what about the headset and charging port? water still can go in from there right? i went frantically to the nearest phone service shop but kns the person hasnt report duty. went to another one. they dont fix Iphone. kns!!!! so i had to drive all the way out to town….. went to Apple Boulevard and another phone shop. they both adviced me not to open it up due to warranty whatnots and assured me that Iphone4 design is so tight that water wont go in easily. i had my doubt and feeling skeptical on them. ‘what if they are only lazy to layan me?’ i did try charging and using the earphones at home before i went to the shop. both worked perfectly. and that strengthened their notion even more. and fyi, my phone is fine till this very moment. so yay!! Conclusion is, Iphone4 has high tolerance to water (or i was lucky) so can go get one yourself. or the 4s :p

pheww… that was a long one.

i just finally received D&G’s actual wedding day album. it arrived in less than a week. i was impressed!! the colour for some photos were a bit off unlike the one that i see and satisfied with on my laptop. but i am very very happy with the outcome. fabulous! and i cannot wait to share their photos here.

on a more stressful side, the ceo finally added me on google talk. our co’s mode of communication. and we had a good chat. ‘good’ means i’ll have to say bye-bye to my carefree lifestyle and be prepare for sleepless nights for the rest of the year which has already started though. i can feel 100 tonnes of weighs on my shoulders right after our chats. sigh! and i know my ‘2011 holiyear’ will finally lead me to this. this exaggerating expectation is the price i have to pay. so this year is a year of redemption and to make up of all lose time. #challengeaccepted

met up with girl friends last week end. and for once, i felt so left behind in errr…. the relationship department. my girls are either married, have kids or expecting baby. well, suck it up buttercup!! it’s your choice!! me!!! T__T so i’ll be meeting them again next week on CNY. yay!! and talking bout that, i was planning to drive back but since the ferry is full and i have no companion, i might as well wait list for flight instead. its the same thing.

owh, i have finally sold my Nikkor 18-105mm f3.5 dx lens to a friend. thought of using the money to top up for a new lens but i am still torn between a new lens Nikkor 85mm f1.8 or a canon G12. haihh…. how ah??!

ok, a photo to end this post.

I didnt know bout the existence of this photo until now. must be my sister’s creative work while i was having my massage at the Massage Hut. i was browsing through my album to scout for a photo to be uploaded here and this one made the cut. because it reminds me of a wonderful relaxing and pampered time enjoyed with people i love and sponsored by people who love me πŸ™‚

btw, i am on twitter most of the time nowadays. and instagram. this photo social network is addictive i tell you. tell me if you are on in and add me @leanoval ok.

be blessed, friends!

Oh Happy Day :)

*can’t stop grinning like an idiot*

because today has confirmed the little secret rumor that the account exec shared with me a few days earlier. THE WHOLE STAFF OF THE COMPANY RECEIVE THE MOST GENEROUS ‘DUIT RAYA’ SINCE THE HISTORY OF THE COMPANY – A ONE MONTH BONUS!!!! *howls* that struck everyone with disbelief. i even heard that some did the poco-poco dance in the office…. apuuuu!!! (not our branch)

with that i am so very THANKFUL. God, THANK YOU for putting me in this place!!! i pray that God will continue to pour His countless blessing towards the company and continue to prosper. and also with that, i wanna say a big THANK YOU to my generous big boss. God bless you, boss!! πŸ˜€


have you ever have a feeling where your heart is so OVERWHELMED with GRATITUDE and JOY for knowing a person in your life that tears filled your eyes just thinking about them? yesterday that feeling consumed me out of the blue. i was so filled with gratitude and thankfulness for knowing this person in my life that ALL her sharing and teaching (with her shrieks and ketegasan, but what do u expect she is a teacher) came flashing one by one drilling my head like a driller and i realised how i have hold on to her words for the person i am today. i sent a THANK YOU message on her fb wall today as well as her inbox and she replied with ‘xie-xie’ LOL!!!! dear Lord, may You always shield her under wings and bless her with never-ending blessing from above in her life.

that person is our pastor’s wife and also a school teacher, dora andy.

have you say THANK YOU to a person that has inspired you or mold you or even left an impact to u today?! no day is better than today to say it.

because a post is always yummier with a photo.

"Today is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be gald in it." Psalm 118:24

be blessed, peeps!

When Valentine Turned Disaster!!

so The Family went back to Myy last monday (which was also a valentine’s day) leaving me alone with my boring life here in Lbu working hard like a cow so that i wont end up eating grass after officially broke from holidays. as i waited for their call to announce their safe arrival, instead i was fed with the bad news by The Sister. strangely i had no feeling at all upon hearing it. dont ask me why. i still cant figure out why. maybe my heart decided to turn into a cold stone that day…. after some mandatory concern questions, my next bimbo questions were “are all my clothes and dresses still in the wardrobe?” and “is my LV bag still there?” thank God i got “Yes” for both. our 47 inch flat screen plasma TV and all the golds in my room and The Mother’s were gone! T____T i dont really mind about my gold *aaarghh!! pls stop throwing that stone at me* because i am not a gold person. plus the gold earrings and necklace that i left in the room were not my favourite…. so…. *ouuchh! what’s wrong with not liking gold?!* but i pity The Mother because she lost all of her valuable golds *sigh* according to The Sister our rooms were like as if they’ve just been hit by tsunami. they ransacked every nook and cranny of the rooms even my bedsheet! tei…. they thought i hide my cash and gold underneath meh?! ngeng! report has been lodged but well, slim chance and tough luck to get them back and to trace the culprit lah…. HAIIIIHHHHHH….!!!!!!!!! that much is the price for a whole family trip….

what a memorable valentine, no?!

even in rough and stormy days, yet i will still praise You~

and this is coming up next.

want some wine?!!! πŸ™‚

be blessed, peeps!

“i used to try to be interesting. that passed. now i try to be pleasant and on time.” – Up In The Air by walter kirn.

that phrase is one of my favourite from the book and has ensconced in my head ever since i read it. i feel the character at that point of time. and i feel it is very relevant to my feeling at that very time i reached that page. page 78. but to tell u the truth i wasnt in a happy / pleasant state at that time. but i read on. in fact i was in the verge to be very angry. angry at ppl who take things for granted. ppl who depend so much on you that they rather let things pass or give up. without even trying.

many of times we feel like we’ve been giving so much but receiving so little. we tend to get angry. all of a sudden everything seems unfair. many times i make the same mistake. my weakness that contribute to the blunder? i love too much. i love the ppl. i love what i do. and then they take it for granted.

one can vent all he/ she wants in many forms but it all will end up nowhere but still bitterness inside. so i rather flip the leaf and breath in the positive vibes and move on. cos my God gives peace and joy and i shall rejoice all the time. i still love a little too much. i still love the ppl. i still love what i do. but i definitely try not to take things for granted.

sorry i digressed.


be blessed, ppl!!
