Pizza....

It was raining heavily when I reached home. I looked around and found that I have nothing to eat for dinner. Not sure where to go when it was raining cats and dogs outside. So I made my mind. Pick up the phone and call for pizza delivery.

Guess the queue is long and I waited for some time before it was my turn to place my order :

Call center person : Hi, how may I help you?
Me : Oh, Hi, I want to order a delivery.
Call center person : Oh, ok. May I have your phone number, please?
Me : XXX-XXXXXXX
Call center person : Thanks. May I have your name please?
Me : XXXXXXXXXXX
Call center person : Oh. Ok. Hold one for a moment....
And the line went dead.......tututututututu....
Me : Huh?????? I haven't place my order!!!!!!!! And you ask me to hold on and???????


Hmm........At that point, I really thought of eating something else but my stomach growled, was pleading to have mercy.....I craved for Pizza, something I have been planning to eat even before I left work that day. Oh well, I will call again.

Yeh...This time it was successful. Though I need to repeat everything I said previously to the first call centre person, but at least I would be getting my much anticipated pizza later that day :). This call centre person told me that if my pizza did not arrive in 30 minutes from the time I ordered (7:50pm), I will get coupon and a free regular pizza.

I was waiting anxiously, looking at the clock ticking away. Not that I wanted that free regular pizza but my stomach was really playing an 'orchestra'. When the clock strike 8:20pm, I really thought I am going to get that free pizza anyway when suddenly 'Ding Dong'......and YES, when I opened the door, I saw 2 uncles holding my soon-to-be dinner :) :) :). They were soaking wet though they had rain coat on. Oh.....how I thanked them and gave them a considerable good tip :). They told me that tonight's order were plenty, probably due to the rain. I kinda pity them but I guess to them, that is their job.


Seafood Delight

Veggie Fiesta
So I munched away in delight that night. Really satisfying. Yummy.........

The cartoon 'Me'

KonTse are really getting more and more creative in finding birthday present :). On my birthday, I received a very special present, a cartoon version of ME!

Ok, how is it? Nice or not? Looked like me or not? Ok ok.....closer shot.

So, what's the verdict? Pass or not? On the scale of 1 to 10, 10 being 'look very alike', how would you rate? Hmm....oh ya, gotta attached my picture here too, for comparison. Yeh, that's the actual me on the top right corner. I am not sure which picture they choose, just a wild guess. Thanks KonTse for the present. Love it :).

The sparkle in my eyes

I loved crystals. Loved to see its sparkled. So imagine how happy I am when I received this parcel. When I opened the box and saw this bracelet, I was a like a kid receiving her favourite lollipop. Only thing is that I don't put it into my mouth of course..:)...........

YH knew I have a penchant for crystals so he made this purchase online. It fits perfectly on my hand. Neither too long nor too short. It was a hand made Swarovski crystal beads bracelet and he chose the pattern and colour himself. I asked for the seller's address but he refused to tell me. Anyway, thanks to him :).

SG Pinang Fried Bee Hoon

I went to Sg Pinang again yesterday, a place famous for its Curry Mee. I have seen this stall selling fried bee hoon for sometime but I never had a chance to try it. Wanted to order it in all my other previous visits but at last some other cravings somehow 'crash' the plan :). So, yesterday I was very determined and yes, finally I have tried it. And how I will never regret it.

It looked like a normal plate of fried bee hoon but it was really nice. The uncle (owner of the stall) will deep fried the fish flesh and prawns as at when you place the order and so, when it was served, you will get a plate of hot, freshly fried meal. Imagine the sweetness of the fish, tasty bee hoon and crunchy prawns......hmm.......I think I exaggerated a little bit but I will definitely go back for this.

I spot a PIGGY :)

Today I spot something I like. Was doing some tasks at work when my head goes blank. Was thinking too hard on something and suddenly found that nothing seems to be working. Searching for an answer but sometimes not even sure what is the question. Too many questions and sometimes not sure which one should I take care of first.

Ha ha, must be wondering what am I mumbling about. Well, back to first thing I wanted to say earlier. Yeh, I was tired of work so was planning to do some info searching at Google. Then I saw the Google logo today, it was a pig doing board jumping. So adorable. Sharing it here. Cute...cute right? Oink! Oink!

Been quite busy trying to pick up my jobs / tasks again after all these months. My colleagues and boss have been really helpful so far. But still, there are a lot of pending tasks to be completed.......tired......:)

Ok, not to focus on job today. There is another event which is much much more important and attention grabing going on. Yeh, the 2008 Olympic that falls on 08.08.08. I believe there are a lot of people who are watching the live telecast of the opening ceremony. I m one of them, updating my blog and watching the telecast at the same time. Keep this post simple, saw and learned the following from Dragon's blog. He will always try to grab the Google's logo whenever there are special occasions / festivals. I saw one today, none other than the one that represents 2008 Olympic, hosted by China :).

This is for you.....

Here’s a post about a simple lady,
Trying her hand at writing a story.

On the blog, Nuffnang's contest is seen visibly
Decided to try out, hopefully it's worthy.

First, from Realmart, I have to select a gift,
Then to decide whom shall I give.

Scratching my head almost the whole day,
Through endless choices, I searched my way,
Finally, Emergency Light, the gift that made my day

Dedicate it to dragon, a true friend I treasure,
Whose friendship no one can ever measure,
For he shines like a jewel during the darkest night,
Making every moment, every second ever so bright.

So, my fellow bloggers, what are you waiting for,
Click on Nuffnang Gift Ideas Contest and check out more.

P/S : I want to take this opportunity to thanks dragon for introducing me to the world of blogging. From here, I got a chance to know lots of wonderful blogger friends........YES, it's YOU. To all of you, thanks for your continuous support :)......

My Cherished Memories

People said 'A picture is worth a thousand words'. For me, a picture captured my most cherished memories. It is like pausing the time at that very moment and captured everything into a picture. Like an external 'hard disk' that kept the memories in place since the space in my brain is kinda 'limited' :).

YH asked me to sort out our previous trip photos cause he wants to have it developed. Ever since owning a digital camera, we have never really get the hard copy into the photo album anymore. The most that we did was getting it downloaded and burned into CDs. Hmm....while going thru those photos, lots and lots of sweet memories came flooding back.

Mom and me on the way to Lake Tahoe
One of the stops at Lake Tahoe. A very beautiful place
YH and me at Sausalito
Snoopy Land (Santa Rosa - somewhere near to where YH was staying at that time)
One of the trees in Redwood Reserve
Reno - just like a mini Las Vegas
Lombard Street, SF
Bodega Bay
Fisherman's Wharf, SF
Palace of the Fine Arts. Hey, we were not taking off our shirt ok, just adjusting it for the next picture. Ha ha. This place is famous to the local folks as a place to take their wedding photos. Nice beautiful buildings around here.

Ok..ok, GET BACK! GET BACK! I am still stuck at San Frans..ha ha. Better continue my pictures sorting before YH get back and start to nag me on the project which I have delayed since last year :)............

Cisco Certification

IT is the field that I selected when I first consider to further my study. Why did I select this subject? It was mainly because during that time, this subject was really well-known and I know that there are a lot of career opportunities for those IT graduates. With technologies advancement, almost all companies are running with the help of computers, be it for documentation or in house applications specifically for the company.

There are a lot of subjects that you can learn from IT. It could be hardware, software, networking, database etc. In the market itself, you can come across various types of IT related jobs. You could be an IT programmer, system analyst, network analyst, server or database administrator.

Being in a job dealing with IT myself, I found that having a degree in IT alone is not enough. The technology is advancing everyday, thus we need to find a way to keep ourselves updated with the latest IT information. One of the ways is thru training and certification.

So where can you look for those certification? Try visiting Cisco and learn more on how you can get Cisco certification. This site offers you various certifications related to IT, from entry to specialist. You can select whichever subjects that you are interested, whether it is related to your current job or for future career advancement. Having equipped yourself with the knowledge you get from Cisco certification, you will bring more values to the organization that you are currently working with and you may stand a bigger chance in getting the job you want from prospective employers.

Genting Highlands Trip #1 - Cable Car

For those who have been to Genting, you will know that there are 3 ways to reach Genting City, by car, by bus or by cable car aka sky liner.

Well, since there were too many of us that day so we gotta separate into 2 groups. I went up by car while my sis took the cable car. So, I past my camera to her knowing that the scenery from the cable car will be much much nicer.


So, here are some of the pics that my sis took. Thank sis...too many of them, can't post all, just pick a few to share here :)

Billboard

Hello All...Am back. Where did I go? Went to KL to visit my sis and took my parents to Genting Highlands. Am really tired but wanted to post something here :)

When you cruise along the highway / expressway, do you take notice of the billboard? If yes, do you really look at what is being advertised? Well, for me, when there is something interesting that catch my eyes, then I will look at those billboard.

Find that, nowadays, the advertisers are getting more and more innovative in order to get the attention of passer-by, consumers etc. Happened to spot those cute and eye-catching billboard when we were along one of the KL highways. Sorry ya, if those photos are not clear coz the sky is getting darker and darker (about to rain) at that time.

I saw this billboard first. Silly me, from far, I really thought someone is standing on top of the billboard :)
I know this is not clear but we were driving kinda fast so it is hard for me to take the pic. It was a bear on the top right side.

Well, we have the same sort of billboard in Penang too. Along the Jelutong expressway.

So, do you see this type of billboard? If yes, do share it ya :)
