HARLO 2012

Bye 2011, Hi 2012!!!

2011 has been a fruitful year for me....i've learnt so much through 1 year of working...things i couldn't have learn in 16 years of studies.

i did not really have a new year resolution for 2011...all because i was an unfocused, undetermined new graduate at the end of 2010. But by the end of 2011, i knew what i wanted in my personal life, career and future. so here goes...

1. To have more FOCUS in work. Although my work is kinda flexible in the sense that u can do whatever u like as long as u complete all your work and hit your KPIs, it definitely requires lots and lots of discipline. Something that i think i lack of in 2011. Sure, I was able to do well in work and in that process earn quite well =P....but still, i know that i did not put my 100% in it. SO FOR 2012, I WOULD GIVE 120% IN MY CAREER!!!

2. Strive for career advancement. i got the recognition i deserve when GM followed me out for fieldwork (definitely the scariest moment of my life....although he intimidates the hell out of me, a hands on GM is somewhat better than other GMs who sits in the office all day long). Identifying me as someone to look out for to my ABM & NSM is 1 step closer to my long term career plans. NOW IT'S TIME TO MOVE ANOTHER STEP CLOSER...

3. Financial planning. With a large chunk of monthly salary going off to parents, insurance, car loan, house loan and credit cards payment, i would have to be more prudent in my savings. Happy to say i've done quite well in 2011. MUST CONTINUE TO SAVE MORE IN 2012!!!

4. Start paying my student loan. I'm so embarassed to admit that i have not been paying my RM40k debt in 2011. MUST START PAYING at least RM12k/year and settle off student loan by 2015 or I'll be in debt till im old!!!

5. FURTHER STUDIES = MBA by end of 2012!!!


7. Wow, Sheng and I are going into our 5th year now...time really does fly. =) and every single moment in the last 5 years was others, when u r already in a 5-year relationship, u would hv probably met with the parents, grandparents, extended families etc. But not in our case...yes, we've met each others' parents...but just short meetings n never for dinner or anything significant. Same goes to extended families, some knew that we are in a relationship, some do not hv a clue at all. Mostly because we prefer living in our own world and never like people asking us too many questions (think of ur own personal situation in family gatherings, weddings, CNY, and times that by 100x o.O). So, for 2012, should we make an effort to branch out and explore the possibilities of meeting the families??? ....we'll see how it goes. CNY is less than a month away...

8. MORE HOLIDAYS!!!! ya, a lil' against resolution #3 (where i'm supposed to save more $$$). But i believe all work n no play...will not make me a dull person, it'll only make me CRAAZEEEE!!! Sheng and I started off the holiday thing quite successfully in 2011, where we paid our own way to HONG KONG!!! before that, it was either KL or Genting (meh!)...

and to start off my holiyear 2012..I'm going to JAPAN!!! with my colleagues in 6 days time!!! i LOVE u Uncle Pfizer!!!

10 months later...

It has been 10 months since i've last updated my blog. Main reason: i've been working since Dec 2010 (the same time i stopped blogging) and couldn't be bothered to do anything else after a hard day's work.

Ok...and so i've stumbled across the new Blogger apps on iOS and decided to install it. Who knows i might start rambling actively once again....So yeah, i'm blogging through iphone now, alone at hm dog-sitting Chloe, Kimi, Suki while my parents n sis are all at Koh Lipe enjoying the sand, sun and sea...

Working life's fine...a lil' hectic with travelling and i don't really hv time to do anything else. I guess that's normal being a medical rep....i'm earning quite well for an entry level position and saving quite a lot since i'm stingy like Scrooge. I rarely buy new clothes, and even if i do, it'll be working clothes and shoes (FYI, i destroy an average of 1 pair of shoe every 3 months due to lotsa walking).

At 24, i have tons of commitments!!! =( Car loan, insurance, house loan, study loan. It's a lot to handle but i'll survive! Plus, how many 24-yr-olds out there can claim that they hv a hse of their own, right? So i guess i'm doing ok, although i will hv to slave away for the next 25yrs. My next few aims would be to pay off my student loan within 2.5 yrs (RM40k wtf!!!) and to then pursue MBA! Sounds like i'm having my plate full here...

Family's doing fine, dad's retiring end of Nov, sis's having her internship, bf sweet as ever, Chloe couldn't be any more cuter, Kimi n Suki has destroyed our garden by constant digging and... that's it for now. Oh ya, i'm darker n fatter!!! Two words a girl dread! =(

Pics below: Chloe; and our destroyed garden filled with booby traps to prevent more digging.

Num ???? err i lost count...

boo hoo i am... exactly 2 months 3 days later, i finally updated my blog. mainly because i have nothing to update about.

my life so far has been boring. in a few sentences, i'm going to elaborate.

i sleep late, wake up late. feed chloe and my 2 new puppies, kimi and suki. occasionally i'd drive to Queensbay Mall to have lunch with my bf and shop around (window shopping though coz i have no source of income as for now). once in a while, i'll go for interviews. got a few jobs offered to me but since i'm picky, i chose to decline them ==" finally accepted one and will start working on dec.

there u life for the past 2 months in less than 80 words.

oh...and at night, i'll either have dinner with my parents or go out for supper with bf, watch tv and call it a night.

ok, that makes it 102 words....

who knows once i start working, i might have things to complain about and 'Angie Rambles' might be an active blog again. =="

till then, may u have a wonderful day!!! =)

my blog is in a coma thank u very much....

and after next week i think it'll officially be dead...

coz i'm having my last paper of my final sem on monday, do the necessary corrections on my thesis so that my supervisor can approve it and then i'm done with my degree....

hopefully...cross my fingers i dun fail the worst paper i've done in my whole entire life...otherwise i might have to repeat. yes, i'm not a bright student.....T.T

so unless i'm frustrated or have something to rant and ramble about, don't count on me to update this blog of mine. blogging is not really a passion of mine. it's more of an outlet for me to just pour all my feelings out...

so that's all for now i guess.....will be back soon...hopefully =)

when will this thing called 'cancer' stop interfering with my life...

no, i don't have cancer.

but i just found out a few days ago that another person that i truly love has cancer...



throughtout my 23 years of existence, i've received this news 3 times!!!

my mum survived cancer =) coz she's young and strong....but my aunty (babysitter/god-mum) did not =(

and now it's her turn....judging from her age, i really dunno if she would survive it =(
i'd always thought that she would live to a ripe age of 99 and die of natural causes.
and i can't bare to go home to visit her coz it would kill me so much i might break down there and then....but not visiting her would make me an unfaithful/ungrateful/mean person...

from what i wrote, some u might guess how this person is related to me..

i have so much in my head, i woke up today with the worst headache ever!

there's nothing i can do but to keep myself occupied right now...

first of all i would to apologise in advance because what u r about to read is again another post of me getting frustrated and angry over a group assignment....

so, i've spent my whole day editing my group's assignment yesterday. going through shitty grammar and lousy sentences. i don't mind doing this part, coz that's what editing is about right???

but then, wat i got from nonsense.

1. uncomplete instead of editing, i ended up doing their should i put this?? er....'got head, no tail' i ended up writing the 'tail' part...=="

2. capital letters and full stops!!!!! capital letters and full stops!!!!!! CAPITAL LETTERS AND FULL STOPS!!!! these are simple common things....and some couldn't even be bothered to put in a capital letter and a full stop....==" hello, all u have to do is press a key or two on the keyboard. i don't need unnecessary work like adding in capital letters and full stops just because they are lazy to press 'caps lock'.

3. i did as much as i could. using my effort and precious time to edit, writing extra, putting all the pieces together....and what i requested was for them to help me do the cover page and help in printing out the assignment. that's all right??? simple and easy....guess what???
mistakes on the cover page =="'

haiz...i was speechless and at that point, i was totally dissapointed. i spent my whole night trying to make the assignment better, when i could've done my own thesis instead. i corrected mistakes and grammar errors, and hell...even added capital letters and full stops!!!

so i thought, simple cover page nia way they can do mistake on that ma.....i was wrong apparently... coz some ppl couldn't be bothered to double check before only takes a few seconds of ur life to scan through the cover page, spot the mistake, and correct it. the least u can do compared to the amount of work i did!!!!

some might say....haiya, nvm la....a bit nia ma........that's not the point!!! the point is they rely too much on others and do not show any effort at all....they knew i would pick up their shit and clean it....and so, they shitted everywhere so that i can continue cleaning up the shit....i can't take it when ppl take me for granted.

we passed up the assignment earlier today. i didn't want to look at the final printed copy at all!!!
thank god it's the final group assignment i'll ever do in my uni life.... after today, the only shit i have to clean up is my own and chloe's!!!!

to coursemates of mine who are reading this....i'm sorry for being such a bitch for the last 3 years! i can't help it but to be like this.....i was born with this obssesive-compulsive thing when it comes to doing my work. don't believe me...ask my secondary schoolmates....i used to cut small pieces of white papers and stick them on whatever mistakes i had instead of using liquid papers =="
