Last Tuesday was my last day at work and here are the farewell gifts that I got. Hmmm...yah, the flowers was a kinda gag gift that we gave to both guys and gals leaving the place, so it was my turn to walk home with a bouquet this time. We also had a pretty good dim sum lunch that day. They also got some brownies and blueberry cheesecake ice-cream to go with it, and book vouchers from Kinokuniya. So right now, let me geek out with some pix of them.
Yah, I know its been awhile since I blogged. Its been one big housekeeping, shelfcleaning, drawerclearing month so far. I'm playing Frenchmaid at not one, not two but three different locations. There's my apartment, my folks' old apartment and my old office.
Everything, all of it is coming back to my place so that means I gotta get rid of existing stuff from my current apartment. As I was tidying my cupboards, I found a ton of movie postcards that I used to collect. I figured I'll give them to anyone of you out there who's reading this! I'm serious, I'll pay the postage. Just send me an email and the kind of movie genre that you like, I'll see what I got. Think of it as an early Xmas present.
Anyway, my folks' old apartment got off to a slightly rocky start. The first guy that was supposed to fix things up didn't return my phone calls and kinda 'disappeared' so I got another guy in. And that's gonna push the deadline back at least a couple of weeks.
When I was a kid, most of the cars especially public buses and cabs don't have air-con like every vehicle today. I would just love to sit right next to the window and have the wind beating into my face while speeding down the road. My dad loves to speed so when he drove me to school like 7am in the morning, we would sometimes get stopped by the traffic cop. Back then, I remember being a little worried sitting in the front seat, keeping an eye out for the cops but now, it's kinda funny.
I sure miss taking those long bus rides, sitting next to the window with the wind blowing really loud in my ears. I think the last time I rode in a cab with the window down was a couple of years ago, when I was 'kinda drunk' and I knew I had to have the window down otherwise I was gonna make that cab my toilet if I didn't get any fresh air.
