What different parts of the world eats in one week

Whee! Diethelm had a little choc stock clearance today. It’s good that I can finally get some perks from working for them. I’m already so sick of working with the Durex Tingle Lub test data for the Taiwan invoices I am developing.

After getting the chocs, we went to Paramount for lunch! The Sunrise duck rice Charlene brought us to was already full of ppl. So we went to Fatty Gan bak kut teh instead. It’s pretty pricey for a rather normal bak kut teh. Jason says the Klang ones are much better (duh!) and is willing to spend us if we go there. I am sure it’s an offer I will take up 😉

By the time we reached back at office, it was already 2.15pm. It really felt like a Friday going out for so long! We have 3 Fridays this week. One on Tuesday when we went to KFC, today and tomorrow, of course. Hope we don’t come back too late again. The unofficial 2 hour Friday lunch break turns into a 3 hour once too often!

We went for dinner too! Had a craving for Williams yesterday, and.. Yup! That’s where we went for dinner. It was a first for a few of them.. and we might just go there again next week. Like Jack said, “I can not resist!!

bak kut teh lunch + williams dinner = pau char 

Too bad we’re moving to TPM soon 😥

“I’ve been dreaming about that goal ever since I was a kid. I used to practise it all the time, on my bed”
– Ronaldinho in the post match interview after scoring that wonderful goal.

“Yeah – it was a great goal. I threw myself at the ball but I didn’t really work out its trajectory. At least I’ll come out on all the photos.”
– Barbosa, the opposition goalkeeper(Villareal) .

My goodness. The number of hits to this place increased manifold and recorded an all time high yesterday. It’s mostly because of that Jais khalwat link I posted. So many ppl really look hard for those videos, which are quite funny actually. It’s not that I keep track of who checks this place out, but a stat like that can not go unnoticed.

Anyway WordPress has been serving me very well since I started using it 3 months ago and its growth has now reached half a million blogs. Blogdrive was great at first, but just did not improve and keep up with the times. WordPress has a lot of cool nifty features and is always improving. A lot of its features are designed so that the user can access any given feature intuitively.. unlike SAP.

We were just discussing in the pantry yesterday that the screen design of the features for SAP is pretty bad. Even the little icons do not make sense and only serve to confuse us. They should get someone like Steve Jobs to give them a makeover and make SAP more user-friendly. Oh well. I guess that’s why we have our jobs.

I spent a lot of time working on that program. After I’ve completed it, they just copied it and changed some things to complete their tasks. I even taught them how to do it. All my effort .. all my research.. Where is credit where it’s due?! But it’s a rather common practice for programmers. Just let me rant >.<

Have been feeling sick for the past couple of days. It’s a miracle how my poor nose is still in one piece after running so many million miles. It’s just the lack of sleep. Off for some shuteye now.

Mmm, trailer for the Simpsons movie 😀

This is a hack

This Ronaldinho goal left my mouth agape for a good few minutes. Just gets better and better the more you watch it. Iniesta’s goal is not too bad either!!

edit (27/11) : a few more insane goals this week – defoe, zlatan, totti (sweeet)

Today is just one of those days where many things just go wrong. I’ve reached boiling point so much there is no more water to boil. Oh well, life’s like that. At least there’re the good problems.
