Resignation Blues

It's been a freaking long time since I last posted. I felt really bad about not updating and suddenly going on MIA but there was stuffs happening in real life that needed some attention.




There's a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple too
And up in the nursery an absurd little bird
Is popping out to say "cuckoo"
Cuckoo, cuckoo

Regretfully they tell us Cuckoo, cuckoo
But firmly they compel us Cuckoo, cuckoo
To say goodbye . . .

To you

- So Long, Farewell, Sound of Music

I've finally handed in my resignation letter as of today and I'll be leaving the bank (I work in a bank in case you never knew :D) at the end of this month. I guess sometimes changes are needed and I felt both extremely relief and sad at the same time. I'm relief that I won't be under anymore pressure and worrying about my sales even on weekends and meeting weird, stalker-ish customers but sad cause I'll be missing the crazy bunch of colleagues. A year passed by really fast and before I knew it come the 25th, it will be my one year. Although I've been with them for just a year, I've learn alot and at the same time, grew up just a little as well.

I've decided to pursue either a Make Up course or learn some basics in a Psychology course. I'm interested in both but I doubt I'll be able to afford to study Psychology. I've also decided to join the same gym with Kern and continue with my yoga lessons. I really wanted to take a break and perhaps travel but with the Swine Flu and all, I guess that's really not the best of ideas. *sigh*

Since it was 4 of our colleagues birthdays in the same month, we decided to have a birthday bash for them in Slippery Senorita (SS) in Upper Penang Road (UPR) last Friday. The pictures taken below is from Kern's album in Facebook.


Me and Samuel,
the guy who sits next to me in office. As fond as I am of him, there are times I just want to kick his a$$ to Kingdom come
and Friday night was one of them


By the looks of my patchy face, I must have drunk quite a bit by then. I end up with super embarrassing patchy skin every time I drink. Sad

Out of topic but that reminds me, Etude House Precious Mineral BB cream gives off a whitish cast, in other words can and may make you look ghastly white. It's suitable for people who are MAC NC 15 and below (just my opinion). It sometimes makes both my face and neck's colour miles apart and trust me, it doesn't look pretty.

It has good coverage and fantastic oil control but if you're darker than NC15, make sure you test it out before buying. It doesn't oxidize and turn natural on me. It remains quite fair.


I think, out of Kern's entire album, this picture was the funniest! I can't stop laughing at this picture every time I see it. In case you're wondering who the drunken guy is, he's actually CT, our Sales Manager.

I enjoyed the companionship of my colleagues and friends but I didn't enjoy the fact that Samuel kept knocking into me like a ping pong ball and CT was stepping on both my feet trhoughout the night. I should have scampered to safety but I didn't wanted to bother Elisa and Matthew so I entertained myself by watching everyone fall over themselves.

On Saturday night, Su Lin, Kern and the rest of us headed over to LOOK Bistro, a new place that just opened up not too long ago next to Soi 11 in UPR. The music was good and when you're surrounded by friends, everything is just great. It really helps to take my mind off lots of worries in the office and trust me when I say, I have a lot of it. Despite it being my last week in the office, I'm still fighting and pushing for sales till the end.


Darren and I,
I like this picture, why cause I actually looked nice in it :D


P.S : Please don't think funny, it really is because of that reason :D

Hey babe, just hope you get all the fun you want after the resign. You know, maybe you should venture in journalism ( if you can take the stress). But seeing your skill in makeup, I guess it's a great choice for you to pursue that course.

Aw... you deserve a happier job.

* hugs*

@eric
hey there, which one? I'm still deciding between 2 actually :p

@Sweetie Michelle
Thank you so much for the lovely words, really thank you!

@Yo E!
Thankie!

@JeanJean dear
That was my initial choice in college but after seeing that I can't write any nonsense and having to write what the higher ups wants as in no freedom of speech, i gave up on journalism. =_=
Thankie very the muchie but I'm actually still a noob, that's why I wanted to pursue the course.

*hugs and kisses*
