last post!

This is gonna be the last post before I head out for my trip. There is always something going on with my life. U want to know? Thing went sour right around lunch time. I went out to get some last minutes items before the trip. I realized I didn’t have any cash with me since I used up for the bus this morning. I stopped at the atm that was near n as soon as I put in the card I realized something wrong with the machine. It kept making loud noises as the cash is about to come out but it didn’t. After waiting for a bit longer I knew it is not going to work. The cash is not coming out n so is the card. Finally iIwent inside the bank to let the teller know while I have no clues if the cash already out or not n hoping it haven’t. just the way the bank was set up I can’t see the atm right outside. The story is going to have to contiue after I come back. It’s hard to type on the phone. Hope u come back to check in 2 weeks n read about my crazy adventure….. I hope u guys have a wonderful week.

Chocooolateeee!!!!!

i thought i write one more post today since i’ll be traveling soon & will not be writing anything for 2 weeks…. r u going to miss me????? =)

Being a good friend as i’m =) i decided to buy a few more items to give to my friends  when i visited them… i went out to this chocolate boutique store (my go to store for birthday gifts) this past weekends…. well internet is not working & i felt lost without it…..i figure i need to take my mind off from it… even though most weekends i’m not online…. i like to know i have access to the internet even when i’m not using it…. let’s get back to the chocolate store…. i usually buy alot from this boutique mostly for birthday gifts…. i hate buying jewelery, clothes or something sentimental for the people i don’t know well…. i’m friends with them but not close enough to be buying jewelery…. but it doesn’t mean the chocolate store is cheap…. i rarely buy anything to eat from there except once…. it was chocolate bar it happen to be on sale but still it cost me over $4….  i was hoping the people who got those chocolates from me will be sharing some to me…. well let’s just say i didn’t have a chance to taste a bite from any of them…. all those liquor fill chocolate….cigar looking one… all those expensive nuts inside the chocolate… nada… i didn’t have a chance to taste any of them…. we’re in recession after all…. i guess i could understand not willing to share & i myself couldn’t bare to buy it for myself….

anyways…. i picked 2 of the great looking box fill with chocolates for my friends…. i figure i would treat myself considering internet is not working…. talking to the rep on the phone for 3 days straight will add more gray hairs…. after all i heard chocolate are good for you…. i’m hoping by eating chocolate the gray hairs that is supposed to appear will DISAPPEAR…. well it didnt’ turn out that way unfortunately…. i picked up the chocolate that caught my eyes—-love fortune cookies covered with chocolate…. i also saw 50% off stickers too…. i thought it was a great deal…. i was over joy that i finally got a chance to taste another chocolate from this store & i didn’t look at the receipt when the cashier hand it to me till i was at the train station…. waiting for the train in an awkward silence i want to read something…. there’s nothing to read anywhere & i reached for my receipt…. lol… there it’s FULL PRICE! WTH?  6 pieces of fortune cookies for 8 bucks?  i don’t think so… i went back to the store (only 5 mins walk)…. i went to check the price first just to be sure…. yep i’m right it’s 50% off…. i told the cashier i want to return it, i thought it was supposed to be on sale but it rang up full price… her first response was no u can’t return it since it’s food items…. um ok…. i just bought it 5 mins ago & it’s still in the package… i haven’t rip the top plastic layer off…. my immediate response was i didn’t know u can’t return it…. i had bought so many items from here…. but through different cashiers…. i asked again isn’t supposed to be on sale her response nope without even checking the sign they put up… the store is smaller than the size of the bathroom at my work…. no kidding… so small….u can’t even shop if there is 2 or 3 more people in the store before you…. too frustrated over internet as it’s i didn’t want to deal with the cashier anymore…. she did mentioned if i come in next time she’ll give me discount on something…. ummmm my thoughts—- how would u remember me?  do i have to remind u “hey i’m the girl who u rang up last time & over charged me”  the store is expensive as it’s except for special occasions i would not be shopping in the store….it definitely leave bad TASTE  in my mouth about the store without even tasting the fortune cookies….those cookies better be the BEST TASTING fortune cookies i ever eat in my life….

p.s. at the back of the box there is tiny sticker with expiration date on 8/21/10… GREAT!

Right Before..

Vacation is only a couple of days away and guess what?  my lovely sis went into my room on friday & did something to the wire that connect to the internet…. officially i no longer have access to internet just before the trip…. i got so much to do….it’s convenience to check in last-minute before i leave for the airport….now i can’t….. i had been on the phone with customer service for the past 3 days…. i really don’t want to be on the phone when i could be resting for my trip…. talk about bad timing….

i didn’t realize how useful internet is until i don’t have access to it…. i also didn’t realize how much i’m addicted to the internet….  i feel like i’m missing something and there’s nothing i could do to fix it…. same goes for phone…. i might not be using my phone constantly but if i don’t have my phone with me when i leave my house i can’t do anything right for the day…. no matter how late i’m i have to go back into my house and get my phone…. that’s what happen this morning…. i hope u guys handle better than i’m about not having access to the internet or phone….

all i want to do is…..

1)  go home & fix my laptop my bro crushed

2)  get ready for my trip

3)  finish eating my ice shave even though it’s freezing cold in the office

4) stop thinking about him

5) shop for new camera

6) enjoy the sun

7) daydreams

8) cry

9)  find a good book to read for the trip— suggestions?

10) curl up in my bed

my heart sank!

it had been crazy day at work but i figure i go out and buy something to eat & walk around a little bit to grab free magazines from the stand so i have at least something to read at my desk….. i don’t want to be staring at the computer while i’m eating lunch…. so i was flipping the magazine and my eyes caught the picture at the corner of the magazine…. it was more like one particular person…. it was HIM! yea the person i had been writing about in my previous posts…. i was surprise…. never in a million i thought i will see his picture…. i felt alittle sad part of the reason was i finally know who he is dating now….. the pic was with a bunch of people but there was one girl in the picture that i remember correctly who wrote about how his profile pic should had been better if she wasn’t cut out from it (you have to read other post)…. his hand was near her arm…. that moment after looking at the picture second time my heart sank….. i thought i was over…. i feel like i’m over from him but i kept seeing things that remind me of him… the book…. now the picture…. among other things…. i think i’m sad the fact that i was never out with his friends…. never adventure out with his friends….

i don’t know for the fact that he is dating her but i have to go with my gut feelings and say “YES” i can’t tell from the picture whether they’re her friends or his friends but again my gut feeling is saying his friends or at least mutual friends….. it’s sad to see the picture….  no matter how i look at the picture she is not his gf & nothing going on…. she is the gf of someone or she is nobody gf…. aside from whether or not something is going on between them plain and simple it’s sad just to see his face again….

Sigh =/

vacation is coming soon…. one of the coworkers is being smart and started going through her files…. right before my vacation (still don’t know who is covering my work their own work yet) giving me stuff that she should have done herself awhile ago but she never did them… how did i know?  well the info. page was dated back in January 2010…. umm… it’s August 2010 already…. why all the rush now to send it?  i let her know about this…. this is going to be such a pain in the ass if i were to send that info…. she said that’s ok…. if they have questions they can come to me…. well it’s going to be hard for them to come to you since i’m the one who is sending them out so it only make sense that they come to me with the questions…. even if they have questions i’m going to my vacation soon…. how will they get their answers?  i can put her contact in but still this is ridiculous…. arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! people!  thanks a lot…..

p.s. did i forget to mentioned there is about 20 + plus Co.  i need to send info out and she doesn’t have 95% of the contact…. i’ll be the one who is looking up the info…. don’t i have the best JOB?

“The Book …. E, P, L”

*There might be some spoilers from the book….i apologized if u haven’t read the book yet…  i need to write those spoilers out to write this blog*

As i mentioned in my earlier post i finally got a turn to read Eat, Pray, Love book from the library…. aside note—i really suggest people to borrow books or movies from library…. it’ll save u tons of money…. after i read the book once more than likely i would not be re reading them again…. the only time i remembered reading the books again was in college to make sure i got the fact right…. that was only because i know i have a test on Shakespeare….

anyways…. i had been reading E,P, L for about four or five days…. my god! i’m so bored…. yes, i understand she is going through so much in her life…. she sound so depressed…. it got me thinking— am i bored with the books because I’M NOT HAPPY with my life as well???? it’s like reading your own diary…. ok i’m not marry or divorced but everyone got their own issues and problems in life…. it’s just depress me more to read about someone else depression….

if u read my earlier posts u know i’m traveling soon and i was browsing through some articles online and i kept seeing travel agencies offering the journey the author went through…. Italy, India and Indonesia for discount prices…. they even mentioned how the number of tourists went up for some spots the author had visited…. it’s great people are visiting those locations but at the same times do u think u will find what she went through?  maybe u’ll find love who knows with the number of people heading the same directions as you but will u discover something about yourself?  she went those locations alone to learn more about culture, interact with people and trying to discover about herself…. (i’m only in the part she is in Italy)…. i can understand people are hopeful that if she can find happiness in life maybe i can too…. let me follow her footsteps…. i can’t guarantee u will or u will not find what u looking for but it might be a fun trips if u and ur friends go those trips together to bond….

i still haven’t finish the book yet…. it seem hard to pick up the book to read…. everyone is talking about how good the book is but i’m having hard time finishing the book…. maybe after my own trip i’ll have a chance to finish it….
