Lai Lai Cat and Piggy

Recently my sis brought back a book for me when she is back from Shanghai. It's a handicraft book... making toys using socks. The unique part is the author is a guy. Hence, the making of toys are quite simple, there is no exact measurement to follow.
So I decided to give it a try... tata... my creation... keke... so simple, i finished 2 in one day...

Sad...You will be missed....

Just received a piece of sad news 2 hrs ago... my colleague just passed away.

We have been colleague for 2.5 years, she is such a nice and jovial person. We had lots of fun and jokes together. But one day last year, she found a lump at her chest area and she decided to remove it when the pain become unbearable this year...

She was well and came back to work... but few months later, she was admitted to hospital again... her tumor grew back... this time it is cancerous...

I just visited her last Monday...and was informed that she is not coming back to work for good as she need to rest. She sent us an email... saying that she will not be coming back too work, her last day is 6th August, and that she will come back to pack her stuffs... saying that if we have to include her if we organise any KTV or outing... I promised I will... but i will never have a chance to anymore...

Rest in peace Sapurah, you will be missed....

25th Oct 08

We woke up early today as my sis had arranged a car to drive us around today and the driver will be arriving at 8am.

Today we went to Zhou Zhuang, it's an old town. Its about 3 hrs drive from Shanghai, very nice place, but it's very crowded.

Zhou Zhuang

We had our lunch in one of the restaurant, we chose to seat at the balcony overlooking a park. We had their famous pork legs, thou it's fat but its delicious.


After going to Zhou Zhuang, we went to a supermarket and a big sport departmental store then headed home.

As we are too tired, my sis and me went our to tabao, we packed back Guiling Bee Hoon. (桂林米粉), its delicious especially in a cool weather. take a look at the following link. Very cheap too, average RMB 8.

Trip to Shanghai

24th Oct 2008

Finally, it's the day of departure. As my mum has an check up appointment and got slightly delayed in the hospital, I met her directly at the airport. It's so strange carrying 2 luggage myself.
Even the taxi driver asked if i am alone...

This is the first time on flight with my mum, 5 hrs flight is a torture to her, she keep wriggling in her seats, yawning loudly and talk loudly... haiz.... the food dun suit her taste either....
When we finally reached Shanghai, checked out, it's already 11pm, hopped on to the taxi and reached my sis hse around midnight.

Another Piece

Recently brought some yarn and made a little something for my Beijing friend, Nicol.
Since i am going to Shanghai, it will be a good opportunity for me to post it, postage will be relatively cheaper. :)

This will be just nice for Autumn temperature.

When I reached home, I saw a parcel for me, I was wondering who is it from while opening the package. It was a nice tin with my favorite animal print on it.


When I opened the tin, its filled with cranberry cookies! Wow! Its from Judy! She baked the cookies and post to me! I felt so honored! And it arrived at the very right time, on Xmas Eve!


Taking bites onto the cookies really warm my heart. Its the best cookies I ever had.

First Time

There are many first time on a nite.

This is my first outing with my colleagues. My first time to Dempsey Hill. My first time tasting Cosmopolitan. Its a good outing and chill out session.

Dempsey Hill is also a nice place to chill out. thou its a little inconvenient.

We went to one of the outlet and ordered our very first Cosmopolitan. My colleagues wanted to try this drink as she always see the actress ordered this in a show. She has been practicing ordering so it will sound more natural.

When the drinks arrived, we toasted to each other and take a slip. Hmm... its very nice and very lady.Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

A Cosmopolitan is a cocktail made with vodka, Triple Sec, cranberry juice, and fresh-squeezed lime juice or sweetened lime juice. Informally, it is referred to as a Cosmo.

My colleague had urged me to try Lychee Martini too. Its nice but too sweet for my taste. We toasted, cheered and bitched about the office. After a few round we decided to call it a day.

Its a good few First Time in a day.

Oktoberfest at One Rochestor

Let me update someting about my Company's recent event, thou its 2 months ago.

On 31st August 2007, our decided to celebrate 3oth Anniversary in conjunction with Customers' Appreciation Nite. Since we are the German Company, we decided to do alittle different this year, we are holding our very first Oktoberfest.

As part of the committee, I am a little excited plus a little worry as this is my very first event in this company. I am having sleepless nites worrying about the weather, if everything will go smoothly, if everything is taken care of etc.

Thou there are little hiccups during planning, and during the show, overall, its quite successful, most of the guests enjoyed themselves.

We hold our Oktoberfest at One Rochestor.
Its a very nice cosy place. If you want a relax and nice place to chill down, this is very good choice.

I arrived before 6.30pm and get the reception ready and make sure everyting is in place. Slowly our staffs and customers arrived. They are first served with specially made Mocktail which is blue colour which is the colour of our theme.
The colour of Oktoberfest is normally Blue and White, which is the colour of the Bavaria Flag. If you wana know more of Oktoberfest refer to

After our MD speech, the food and drinks are served. The guests get to eat Authentic German food and free flow of Beers. Everyone start to relax in a corner and enjoy the band.Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

There are little games like crowning Oktoberfest King and Queen, Chicken Dance. Even our MD is enjoying himself. He is doing the Chicken Dance with our emcee.Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The event is supposed to end at 10pm, but many of the staffs had enjoyed themselves and continue to drink on. Some even got drunk and vomited, most of them are half sober. After all the guests had left, I quickly sneak off around 12am because some of the colleagues planned to sabo me.

Its a tiring nite but a good one. My spirit is still high even after a shower and on my bed. After so many sleepless nite, I finally can have a good nite sleep.
