Maldivian Claud

After moved in to the new house in less than a year, we discovered that the painting on exterior wall has faded!! Day by day that it has faded till an extend of making our new house looks like an OLD one!!

So it's not hard to guess what's my to do list for PRE-CNY prep ya??


Fret not, i'm not so ambitious to paint the whole house, just the outer wall where the main gate attached to it!! So what's my to buy list?

Dulux Weather Shield - White
Weather Shield - Maldivian Claud (it's actually a blueish grey)
Black paint (for the gate)

So on last Saturday morning, both of us wake up at 6.45am to prep to paint the house!!! and Gosh, i din know that it's gonna be this tiring!!! (Seriously, no kidding, it's really TIRING) we are both exhausted when we finally completed this mini project!! (and I'm glad we did it n I'm happy with the new look of it)

Here's a sneak peak of LG painting the house!!

What did i learn during this process?
1) Don't be stingy! If you are not sure the leftover paint is enough for the job, get enough supply or else u'll risk doing that tiring job again!!
2) Brushes! Make sure you get enough brushes!
3) Tape! Useful to do the delicate area without having the hassle of touching up!
4) Dun be lazy! Cover the flr with newspaper!! or else u gotta sit there with ur tiring butt, hand and leg to remove the stain! Worse of all, make ur finger dry n skin crack!
5) Check the weather forecast! As u don't want the rain to ruin your few hours HARDWORK!!
6) Be creative and bold! change new colours, coz painting the same old colour could be boring!

Am I a doomed manager? Everytime when i start to have a good bond with my staff they wanna hit me with the word GOOD BYE!!

The first case happened when after a long long day I drive home to get an sms (around sunway pyramid area) that my staff wanted to resign. And she mention she has thought about this for long and have made up her mind. When I tried to call her, she has switched off her phone!!! FURIOUS!!

2nd case, the girl came to my desk at 7pm when i was about to call it a day to ask " Do you have a minute to talk" Okay immediately I know what she wants to tell me. bla bla bla, better offer and nearer location.

Okay okay go ahead to ur greener pasture, i am not stopping u. I WILL DEFINATELY GET A BETTER REPLACEMENT

How to be HAPPY

This shop manage to catch my attention every time i walk past coz they have live demonstration on how to make the candy. But i never bought one coz eating candy is not really what I fancy, plus their candy doesn't come cheap.

Last weekend, we were taking a browse after dinner at 1U, and bump into this cute lil' shop again, and this time they are giving out free candy!!! Without hessitation, I went to grab one, to my surprise they have lil "I LOVE YOU" Words in it!!

HAPPY can be as simple as getting a free candy :)

How much does it cost to post a CNY card to KL??

50cts? 30cts?

Well to avoid the embarrassment (coz I'm sending those to my clients) I make a trip to the post office. Based on my assumption, non sealed CNY cards should get a cheaper postage.

It was a hot & sunny day that everyone decided to go to post office to run their errands that parking in post office was all FULL!! ok nvm, i just park illegally and they can't give me a ticket for just simply park my car!! hahahha Situation inside the post office wasn't pleasant either, it's filled with retired people trying to pay their household bills. Okay that's expected, so I patiently queue up at the "Setem" line and waited for like 15mins coz the guy in front of me was sending tons of registered mail!! arrrghhhh

Finally my turn, i pass him the card,
(M = Me; O = Officer)
M: semua hantar ke KL
O: Seal kan envelope tu, tak seal lima puloh cent, seal 30cent
M: ok ok, nanti saya pergi seal.

Hmmm i remember years ago when sending CNY cards is a trend I tend not to seal the card coz it can save me 5cents of postage. I suppose time has changed and now sealed envelope are cheaper so that the letter wun fall off and the post office people don't have to put it back nicely?

OPI - Over the taupe

Since young, i'm used to seeing my mom in her pretty glossy pink nail polish! Back then mani & pedicure was not common, in fact I din even know you can go to a nail saloon to get ur nail fixed!! I guess it was then I have secretly like the idea of putting nail polish.

But back them I was very tom boyish. Can't really remember when did i start to put nail polish. I guess it must me during the uni time. I still remember I purposely went to get a nail polish (revlon) just to get it match with my dress :) to go for an Opera, Les' Miserable... the good old memories.

Fast forward to current, my latest addition of OPI -> A greyish with subtle hint of purple shade. Mom and LG hates it, but i thought it was kinda cool~ what you think?

This was taken while i had nothing better to do in the car, taken with my mobile without flash under direct sunlight

This was taken in the office *sheeesshhh don't let the boss know*
