my (not typical) weekend – final

On Sunday,

It was 10 a.m when I came out from my bedroom. Ugh! I was the last one who woke up, almost. Apparently, I was the second. Well, I felt a bit weird when I woke up late, but anyway, these two days were really made me tired.

Ironing the laundry form previous day and lucky me, it wasn’t that much. Hmm.. I suddenly feels like want to go to McD nearby, had a breakfast set and more precisely, I want to complete my Doraemon set ;p

I told my flatmates my plan, that I might go to the nearby market to buy some supplies for cooking lunch. And one of them told me that she wanted to join me for shopping.

my weekend – part 2/3

On Saturday,

Woke up at 9 a.m. boiled some water in the pot, I made myself a morning coffee. Hmm, it was a bright sunny Saturday morning, I had an idea!

I headed back to my room and the idea was changing my bed sheets. I took off the old and put the new one, ran the washing machines with all week  laundry. I grabbed the bread and sipped the coffee while waiting for the washing machine to finish.

However, I saw some dust on my desk previously. I decided to do some cleaning. There was a plenty of time to kill anyway. After I wiped my table and out of nowhere, I felt that I like to .. re-arrange my room, my table to put it more precise.

my weekend – part 1/3

On Friday,

My mobile phone was blinking. Someone’s calling me. I was at my office, doing some Flash animations for company greeting cards. I used to ignore my mobile phone during office hour since I worked here. It’s not because I want to impress my colleagues how hard working I am though.

Took a glance on my blinking mobile on my desk, the number looked quite long and came to my surprise, it had a very familiar prefix, my country. I paused for a while, tried to guess who was it, and decided to answer the call.

It was my cousin. She told me that her mother – my aunt – and her were in Singapore for a while, before tomorrow heading back to my hometown, and asked could we meet tonight.

Keeping a Journal

On facing my obstacles…

There are many forms of obstacles in our life. And I believe that each of them is designed uniquely based on our needs. You can say it “haute couture”, a fashion term which means specially tailored to suit our needs.

Until recently, I often think where am I going from this point of my life? Is that life is the life that I really want?

[J-drama]: Kekkon Dekinai Otoko

It’s been a while since I watched J-Drama so I didn’t really have expectation about it.

This Japanese dorama is my first dorama within last 5 years which I got it from my friend in Australia.
Literally, “Kekkon Dekinai Otoko” means “A man who can’t get married”, which at first, I thought it was very serious dorama type, and related with something terrible in the past that’s why he couldn’t married.

But, I was wrong.

The drama is so funny and I couldn’t stop watch it episode by episode.

In short, the story is mainly about a mature, eccentric, perfectionist architect (Abe Hiroshi) who runs a small company which has only one young assistant. He used to live alone and enjoys his small world. Until, he got terrible stomach pain and he has to ask help from his neighbor. Later, more people come into his life, some of them start to like him despite his ‘unique’ character.

What I like from this dorama, besides the unique main character, is the portrayal of ordinary day to day life for example the conflict. His character is accumulation from people characters that sometimes people around us have.

You should try to watch it! It’s simple and entertaining yet quite meaningful to me.

It won’t take long, only 12 episodes.

Trying to keep my feet on the ground


I know, it’s been a while I haven’t really writing my blog. I’m still adjusting my lifestyle after, officially, work. There are lots of things happened within last month. Maybe I can wrap up some points and share with you all.

First thing, is about my new workplace.
I work as web developer in a translation company. I only know about this line of industry after I join the company. I think, it’s not really popular thing in my country, but since there are different races and languages in Singapore, this line may be popular. 😉

Work work work


It’s been a while haven’t write about my daily activities. 🙂

These past few days were passing slowly until Sunday night. I was finally able to stay at home and watch movie on Friday because I tried to finish the things before going to work on next week. 🙂

Since obtaining my EP, I was planning to enjoy my day before entering the working world. 😀

Anyhow, I was not be able to fully enjoy that week, it was quite a busy week :p

Anyway, my first day was this Monday. I was so nervous. Just scared that something went wrong :p But, it went well though. I was introduced to many new people, and I hope that I could remember their names :p

Today, I was having new assignment after studying the system for half day…

So for tomorrow, I have to work hard!!!


If people said that a mile journey starts with small single step, I guess, I did some of my early small steps.

I obtained my Employment Pass today.

Within the last 24 hours, I was rushed here and there.

Here’s some yesterday’s flash back….

Yesterday, I was planning to go to Funan Digital Life mall, to check about my laptop. It was broken since two months ago. It was repaired and broken afterwards. However the last one, really beyond my ability. Anyway, I had my lunch then I decided to visit the clinic I had my medical check up two days ago, to see whether I can collect the result since the nurse told me in the morning that it might be finished after lunch. She told me that I can collect it after 230pm waiting the doctor to sign the result.
I was wondering, will I be able to finish all my errands by today?
