Hot Wet Summer Holiday

My initial plan for my summer holiday was to escape this crowded little island to a peaceful and tranquil paradise. But with a twist of fate, I’m flying off to Hong Kong on Saturday!

I was just checking the weather forecast and it seems that I’m trading a hot crowded environment for a hot and wet and crowded environment. Hmmm..

[Reminding myself, it’s not just the place or weather, it’s the company! The company…right…the company….oh….shit….the company…]

Apple Annual Party 2008

We had lots of fun at Café Del Mar, nice place, great company and interesting activities. They hired face painting artistes, tarot card readers and hot pirate waitress for the events!

The interns

The little blue box.

 

Thank you Clare for your farewell gift. A little blue box. I finally own a piece of Tiffany that girls go ga-ga over. She gave me a necklace with a teardrop shaped pendant.

Muchie.

Dot bought me a little farewell gift. heheh… damn cute. Thank you! I’ll call it Muchie… cause he looks hungry. hahahaha

“Teaah”

A friend just explained to me what’s the meaning of “teaah?

A girl who …

is very girly
is like a bimbo
likes to whine
is like “Ling Zhi ling

The word sounds like “squeeze” in hokkien.

-_-

Graduation Ceremony

I had my “graduation ceremony” yesterday at Apple.

I presented to 20+ management and at the end of it, I was awarded a Pink iPod nano. Woot! One more preso later and I’m almost done.

iFriends

My very creative intern friend – Vincent Ang did the following comic strip for us. How sweet.

I’m suppose to look like a mystery shopper…-_-

Hi STUPID PIG,

I’ve already sent you the details on July 18, 9:02 AM

Please refer to the forwarded message below

Serene

I hate it when people underestimate my working efficiency and still dare to send stupid reminder emails when I’ve already did my job. Just because they didn’t check their emails, it doesn’t mean that other people don’t do that too.

Common name

To further prove my point that my name is extremely common.

I’m the one in sales department. -_-“

Hey Peeps,

My internship is coming to an end (like next week!) so if you guys/babes need to buy any of my company’s product, drop me a mail/call/sms. I can help you guys/babes buy it at staff rates. :)

Love,
Serene

The big 5

Once you hit 50. It’s a sign. I think my metabolism is slowing down. And I thought it only starts at the age of 25. Sucks.

I spotted a car plate license with my birth date on Sunday, so I got my mum to buy $2 4D since I feel lucky that day. It’s probably the 3rd time I bought 4D in my entire life.

At night…

Mum: “Wah, Ah ling, you ask me buy 4D all the numbers missed 1 number le. I bought Quan Da le… Now pay me back.”

Serene: Mum, I only ask you buy $2. See la, you greedy, now you make me lost money. So I am not paying you.

HAHAHAHHA

I’ve got a dysfunctional family.

Joanna Wang – Let’s Start from Here

She’s good. I love her husky voice, sexy and soothing at the same time. Nice. Feels like winter …

Lets Start From Here – Joanna Wang

Let’s Start From Here

Giving up,why should I

I’ve come to far to forget
We’re beautiful,we just got lost

Somewhere along the way
So much was missing when you went away
Let’s start from here,lose the past
Change our minds,we don’t need a finish line
Let’s take this chance don’t think too deep
Of all those promises we couldn’t seem to keep
I don’t care where we go
Let’s start from here

Standing here face to face
A finger on your lips
Don’t say a word don’t make a sound
Silence surrounds us now
Even when you were gone I felt you everywhere
Let’ start from here, lose the past
Change our minds, we don’t need a finish line
Let’s take this chance don’t think too deep
Of all those promises we couldn’t seem to keep
I don’t care where we go
Let’s start from here
Let’s start from here

I’ve never been the one to open up
But you’ve always been the voive within
The only warmth from my cold heart
Let’s start from here, lose the past
Change our minds, we don’t need a finish line
Let’s take this chance don’t think too deep
Of all those promises
Let’s start from here, lose the past
Change our minds, we don’t need a finish line
Let’s take this chance don’t think too deep
Of all those promises we couldn’t seem to keep
I don’t care where we go
Let’s start from here
Let’s start from here
Let’s start from here
Let’s start from here

Over-used Personality Test #2

My sister is too lame and too free.

“Think of one word that you can associate with these items.”

My response..

Dog = Faithful, Cat = Evil, Rat = Dirty, Coffee = Awake, Sea = Peace

The answer…

Dog = your personality, Cat = your partner’s , Rat = your enemy, Coffee = sex and Sea = your life.

The funny part is, my sister relates coffee to studious cause she only drinks them when she’s mugging. So that explains her sex life?! HAH.

Over-used Personality Test #1

My sister asked me to rank these animals in any order that I like


        

 

So I ranked…

Horse, Sheep, Pig, Cow and Tiger

And the results. These animals represent priority in life.

Horse = Family, Sheep = Love, Pig = Money, Cow = Career and Tiger = Pride

My Sister is Hilarious!

Had a conversation with 2 interesting people in my life.

Instant messaging? Ya right…


Some people really shouldn’t use instant messaging if they take eons to answer them. They should really use pigeons or snails.

Note: Instant messaging = instantaneously receiving of messages and replying them too

Makati Shangri-La, Manila

Makati Shangri-La, Manila is purr-fect. Hmm.

The room smells of flowers upon my arrival. I’ve received a personal card with my name “Ms. Silin Tan”. With complimentary fresh fruits and a huge bathroom that I wish to wake up to every morning. I took a long bath with bath salt, slept in the sleeping robe provided. Hmmm…

Went for a quick swim in the morning before eating the American breakfast in the Horizon members only lounge. A friend of mine said this, “You’re like filming sex and the city.” Haha… But reality looms around the corner, calling out to me…


Manila is not part of the Southern Philippines

My mum smsed me today:

“Five people killed when gunmen opened fire on a bus in the rebellion-hit southern Philippines.”
-_-“

I’m going Manila.
