mini updates 2009~~

lol, think i shldnt be just posting mini updates, especially when i stopped blogging for like… 8 months?! well here they are.

a peak went past, which was tiring and tough, as usual, but im getting the hang of it.

promotion didn’t come, kinda expected cos my boss gave me the insider news some 2 months before the announcement, so not too bad a blow i suppose.

many colleagues left the firm, mostly due to the bad news above. not a bad thing though, at least makes them realise what they want in life is not to slog for ungrateful employers.

sei jeong flew back to australia, and there were tears everywhere. wish her all the best.

jiuzhaigou trip in jun’09 was great, especially after peak, and it’s totally an amazing world over there.

family relationships got better, especially after the hk trip in may’09, and definitely will improve more.

friendship among closer friends got a little disrupted though. sigh. drama of life, maybe?

too many things flew past in just a short time span of 8 months, and i do not even have the time to reflect on my actions vs outcomes of those events, not to mention time for any possible regrets. however, one thing which i wont regret was to make her a closer part in my life.


i’m L~~

w00t~~ i’m finally back to my own desktop and keyboard after a fantastic spree at TW and HK.

continuing from my previous post, we went to HK right after we left taipei, and these are the happenings we had:

Grande TW/HK day 8: 22/5/08 – HK L

left taipei at 8am, we are supposed to take the 9am flight but there were vacancies and since we reached the airport early, the stewardess gave us the slots for the former timing. and there we go…. HK!!

boarding pass

however, it was damn sianz after we touched down cos we found out that our hotel (L’Hotel) had 2 locations, one on HK island, and one at west Kowloon!! wth… bad planning on our side takes effect, luckily we reached HK earlier and we didnt burn that much time on our 1st day in HK.

our hotel was magnificent right from the 1st time we set our sight on from far, and was really classy… however, something weird about this hotel is that all the bathrooms are transparent!! yes… transparent, with only a flimsy curtain to cover from inside… wth rite! haha… end up i need to camp downstairs when my female fren bathes…
