riDiculoUs & uNgLam side of KiAsu-ism... duN be a lAughin' sTock!

all along parents taught their kids not to open their ang-baos to see how much they are given immediately after they got it as a form of basic respect & courtesy for the elders (dun they also teach in "Hao Gong Ming" lessons in school as well?). Needless to say, saying outright that whatever given is "sooo little ar".. all the more reflects the lack in upbringin' of that child..

however, at an age whereby people deem you to be sensible enuff (or at least you wanted to be treated like an adult), to be an adolescent that suppose to have at least some basic thinkin' capabilities.. havin' sucha behaviour i feel.. it really puts pple off..

..seriously, the meanin' of giving ang-baos durin' CNY in chinese tradition is to send the festive blessings from the giver to the receiver, so why must compare the amt in it... its the thought that counts.. furthermore, if the place u are workin' in bothers to celebrate the festive seasons, havin' the bosses (especially if they are not even married!) botherin' to give ang-baos as a form of gd luck to everyone (even to the part-timers), is really a gd employee incentive.. y complain? (trust me i've known of places where they dun even bother wishin' the employees happy new year.. ang-baos? nah..one can forget abt it..)

so why spoil this fun & enjoyable festival with sucha unwanted behaviour... sometimes i wonder...

maRketin' gaLore.. aUntie-like already?.. haha.. says who?

Breathing the fresh air with the fragrance of the morning dew into my system marks the beginning of a beautiful day.. unable to fall asleep after been up for the previous night.. go marketin' with mum is a good idea after all.

As the birds are chirping, people squeezing up the crowded bus to work, (gosh! the bus look like its gonna explode anytime with all the passengers on board! geez, am i so glad that i am not one of them..) the market is already bustling with so many people (trust me, really alot of people till i gotta sqeeze my way through to move around..) apparently everyone knows my mum very well, with all the hellos & new year greetings from all the stallowners, (oh did i mention the ever so astonished look on their faces & their "oh my, ur daughter so big already ar?"..gosh! makes me feel so OLD.. when they saw me & found out that i am my mum's daughter..) i start to love the lively spirit of the place already.

..... amidst passing through all the fishes, poultry, veg & fruits stalls & having fun telling my mum the right way to choose the stuffs & which items are the freshest.. & putting my bargaining skills to good use.. my mum suddenly said to me: "my gal, i didn't know you know so much.. "

i grinned. (can't let her know the secret.. isn't it?)

luCk haS it? Nah...

Maybe i have not say my prayers before i went out of my house.. maybe things juz happened for a reason.. maybe life has its little twists & turns to make it more fascinating.. but being down with luck is not what i expected when i have an appointment to attend & when i am in an urgent rush.

13 things that happens which warns one to stay indoors by hook or by crook....

No. 1: Spilled liquid foundation on ur fav. dress that leaves sucha a big ugly blotch at the front.(its still okie, coz juz change into another new outfit.. that's wat i told myself..)

No. 2: Spilled half of my face powder on the dressing table & have to spend 15mins to clean up the stupid mess. (i reassure myself that i juz need to quickly clear up the mess & its not that bad..)

No. 3: my house keys decided to play hide & seek with me.. 10mins wasted..

finally i got out of my house.. so things gonna be fine.. & so i thought...

No. 4: the only way to get to my destination in time is cab.. but juz when i need it, not a single one in sight.. wasted quite a while waiting..

No. 5: finally a cab in sight!! (my day is not that bad afterall..ha yeah rite..) boarded it & the time is 5.01pm.. i have juz incurred the $2 peak hour surcharge.

No. 6: told the cabby that i am going to Clarke Quay mrt station & was juz msging my client the time that i will reach the place when... beep.. my phone went dead.. totally zero batt left.. (what?! this is not happening..)

No. 7: asked the cabby if he has a nokia phone charger... coz some do charge their mobiles in their cab.. he says: "Sorry, i today forgot to bring lehz.." (never mind...)

No. 8: trapped in a jam juz a mere 5 minutes away from my destination.. additional 15mins wasted.. (breathe, breathe!)

No. 9: when u thought u'll be alighting at Clarke Quay mrt.. instead u landed at Liang Court taxi stand.. i told the cabby that I am going to the Clarke Quay MRT Station not Liang Court, he says: "huh? Clarke Quay where got MRT Station? Since when? aiyah here also can larhz, same same." (thats it! i paid my fare & i juz wanna out of the cab!)

No. 10: Peak surcharge + ERP surchage + traffic jam additonal waiting charge + normal fare = a whopping $18.20... (juz burned a hole in my wallet..)

No. 11: fantically looking for a public phone to call my client... none in sight! (Wasted 10mins)

No. 12: decided to walk to Clarke Quay mrt (in my killer heels...) & found a public phone.. (at last!) client says: "I am over at Haagen Dazs Cafe at The Cannery, so you come over."

No. 13: Finally i met the client at the designated location (of which at this point, my feet already hurt like crazy thanks to all the throtting around..) She says: "actually i got something to show you.. this product is quite gd to use......" (why am i here in the 1st place?)

I kinda felt cheated in a way... maybe i shld have heeded all the signs... oh well....
