Long Time No See....

Goodness me. It has been ages since I peeked into my own blog. Some of you might have thought that I died or something.... It's ok, it's my own fault neglecting my online friends.
So life goes on for this averagely-paid civil servant... Only three interesting things happened since my last post;

1.  My Kia was sent to the workshop thrice. Three different cooling tubes leaked and sprayed for three consecutive weeks. I did some minor repairs of my own but they weren't good enough and I was afraid that my car would explode if I didn't send it to the workshop. Strangely, I was not really worried for these series of unfortunate events, and I cannot even explain why I felt so.

2.  After posting my email address at one obscure site, I began to receive a tremendous amount of junk mails and fake proposals from around the planet. I got VERY FEW emails which arrived from people who genuinely seeking friendship. I say, the age of internet KILLED a lot of innocence and well intentions.

3.  I traded two of my handphones (an Acer beTouch and a Nokia C3) for a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro. A cute smartphone, but it can drain a lot of battery before midday! I still have my LG Cookie and it is now used to replace my now not-reliable alarm clock.

And now.... the political fires in school were burning high again and this time I didn't start them. This happened when many teachers realized that they didn't get enough appreciation from the administrators as they thought they should (low marks in performance score). Many teachers were angered and started to question the powers-above and as I expected it to happen, they were not satisfied by the answer.

Dirty politics. When the undeserving got a lot more advantages than honest working dudes....

I think you have too many communication devices but i do admire your ability to trade up!

Good to see you again!

Sadly, the more you spread your email address around the more junk you get of all kinds. Seems that lots of people out there like me and either want to give me money or marry me.

Workplace politics - isn't it great?

Grayquill; I don't NEED them, I just WANT them! And we want MORE! Oh these devices are indeed the modern vice of our time.

I am already considered crazy by some people who know me :P

Rock Chef; Very true. And from the writing format of most of the proposal emails, they might be sent by the same girl / woman / thing. And the millions of dollars.... those FANTASY currency I inherited from unknown people from Africa, Cuba etc.....

I am so good in politics.... my late father even banned me from being actively involved. He knew how I can bend rules to achieve my dark ambitions :P
