GoodBye Snow

30 05 2007

My mom calls her Snow. I call her Mice. At times I call her Stuart Little despite her being female.

I loved watching her climb the papaya tree which such agility.

I loved how warm and soft her body feels on my lap.

I loved being entertained watching her catching the other cats/dogs’ tails.

I loved laughing at how she would run so fast and crash into the grill.

I loved how she would behave like an adult cat when she’s only a kitten.

Most of all, I loved the uniqueness of her eyes, the right being blue and the left being grey, and her super-long tail which made her looked like a white mice.

Short-lived, barely 2 months, today, she was ran over by a car. With blood splattered on the road from her head and legs, she lay there motionless. I shed a tear or two as I bade her farewell.

GoodBye Snow, GoodBye Mice. It was a joy having you as part of the family.

And it’s back to my three doggies and five cats… 🙂

My vacation vibe is Sporty! :)

Your vacation vibe is Sporty

From surfing and hiking to kayaking and playing tennis, a real sport like you enjoys being active, even when you’re on vacation. While others are burning on the beach, you’d rather be burning calories and working up a sweat.

No couch potato, you take your enthusiastic approach to life wherever you go, especially when you’re on the road. That’s why a destination that’s got plenty to do is your best bet. Leave the pleasure cruises to other folks. For you, it’s all about getting out and about, whether you’re whooshing down a mountain, swishing in a river, or zipping along a trail. Sounds good, huh? Then, get going!

What’s Your Vacation Vibe?

heheh so me?

Your city style match is Chicago

Just because it’s the windy city doesn’t mean it’s not sunny. And like Chicago, you’re a warm and welcoming person who’s sincere and down-to-earth. You’re a great friend who has both feet on the ground and a steady grip on reality.

Like your city style match, you’ve got a lot going for you — smarts, sweetness, and, of course, good taste. Lucky for you, Chicago’s got plenty to keep you busy and delight your senses, from blues clubs to great restaurants to the Magnificent Mile to Oprah. So pack your bags. Your sensible and sweet style has found its perfect match!

Which City Matches Your Style?

Yeehar!! I’m moving to Chicago babeh!! Who’s tagging along? heheh…





I’m an Outdoorsy Traveler

You’re an Outdoorsy Traveler

Climbing Machu Picchu. Windsurfing in the tropics. Shooting river rapids. When you’re traveling, it’s all about escaping to the outdoors. After all, taking part in life’s little adventures is what makes a vacation more of a getaway.

Of course you’ll head inside for a few hours to see what treasures museums, cathedrals, and historic sites hold. But you’d probably rather be hiking, skydiving, skiing, or just exploring the scenic offerings your destination boasts. Some fresh air and a new view are all you need to rejuvenate. Soak it up!

What Kind of Traveler Are You?

Sporty and Outdoorsy… If it’s consistent it must be true right? heh. I like!

My Wish – Rascal Flatts

13 05 2007

My all time favourite song! Love the lyrics!

‘am dedicating this song to all soon-to-be graduates! This is my wish for you guys and gals who’ll soon embark on a new chapter of life! Embrace it with optimism, look forward to fulfilling your dreams and be the best that you can be! Welcome to the dog-eat-dog world! hehe… Feel on top of the world while you can 😀

Hit Play!

lyrics:

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow
And each road leads you where you want to go
And if you’re faced with the choice and you have to choose
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you
And if one door opens to another door closed
I hope you keep on walkin’ ‘til you find the window
If it’s cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile
But more than anything, more than anything

Chorus

My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold
And while you’re out there gettin’ where you’re gettin’ to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish

I hope you never look back but you never forget
All the ones who love you
And the place you left
I hope you always forgive and you never regret
And you help somebody every chance you get
Oh, you find God’s grace in every mistake
And always give more than you take
But more than anything, yeah more than anything

Chorus x2

My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold
And while you’re out there gettin’ where you’re gettin’ to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish

This is my wish
I hope you know somebody loves you
May all your dreams stay big

All the best peeps!!!

p/s: They don’t sound as good singing live as they do on their record. Then again, that happens with most of the ‘singers’ eh?





Management Associate Forum 2007

12 05 2007

The pioneering batch (a.k.a. guinea pigs) of Management Associates 2006 from United Overseas Bank were given the opportunity to organize this year’s forum for the potential Management Associate (MA) candidates.

Given merely 3 weeks to come up with an event that will entice the potential MAs to choose UOB was a challenge. 10 heads got together, had some clashes, got shocked from the miscommunication of ballroom choices, emcees and speakers getting all tensed up, but in the end we were thankful that it was all praises.

I personally had a great time running around getting the banner and the layout and the setting of the hotel ready. I definitely felt more energetic organizing the forum compared to my current role at the office. (Kinda makes me wonder where I belong).

All in all, 72 MA candidates, 15 Head of Divisions and 90 UOB staffs showed up to render their support. The assessment tests held on the following day showed that there were definitely slightly more than a handful of very very potential MAs this year. And till we find out who’s the 16 that made the cut, the 10 of us will just watch from the sidebench and nervously bite our nails in preparation for the challenges ahead! 😀
