Goobye Ops Team Alpha - Goodbye G Div

The countdown is finally over. T02358 is now history and for the next 2 months, I am NOT unemployed : ) but a full-time housewife. The wonders of being a wife, you don’t get to be unemployed.

So once again, I find myself writing my goodbye, only this time; it is not a transfer posting...it is for good.  As I drove out of the station, it dawned on me, that this is it! No more turning back. You can either see it as a brave move or merely stupidity.

To me, I am only pursuing something that has caught my interest recently. And knowing me, my interest in something does not come by easily. Just as how I decided to become a police officer, that is exactly how I decided to be an early childhood educator.

18th May 2010 – I embarked my new journey in Ops Team.

29th July 2011 – I ended my journey, not only in Ops Team, but as a law enforcer.

As much as I am excited about leaving, a part of me feels sad. Sad, about having to leave a good company of friends. Friendship, which bonded over a short period of time.

Though the work may suck at times here...in CO at least, since that is my “specialty’’....YOU my friends, are the ones that make me want to come to work, not the work itself (NO WAY!!).

With this, I would like to extend my utmost appreciation, to all of you, who have showed me the ropes and guide me, to make me the officer I was during my short stint in Ops Team. I learnt from each one of you. Each of you played a role in showing me the ropes – be it my seniors as well as my juniors, be it regulars or ns. I did my best in learning as fast as possible and carrying out my job to my best ability. From not knowing anything about being a PIC officer, I had grown to learn so much to be the officer that I was. If I was ever good at all, the credit goes to you. But should I fail to perform in any way, I do apologise. And of course, if I had offended anyone with my jokes, my naggings, my actions or what have you, do forgive me.

I shall always remember my life in CO. It was all about the biker boys with their forever bike topics, the 3 stooges who ganged up against me, my gossip female partner who when we get together, it will be chaos, my wonderful SC brothers who are forever nagged at by me and not to forget, my not well-liked singing : )

You...the dudes and the babes are superb! I will definitely miss all of you.  

Team Alpha has always been the best so do keep team Alpha flag soaring high as always.  As for me, I shall find new peeps to torture with my naggings and singing.

Adios Ops Team Alpha...till we meet again.



Love
Seri

Quizbox

Get To Know Yourself - http://www.quizbox.com/personality/test82.aspx.


Your view on yourself:

You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.

(My say: 50-50 probably right)

The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:

You like serious, smart and determined people. You don't judge a book by its cover, so good-looking people aren't necessarily your style. This makes you an attractive person in many people's eyes.

(My say: hmmm.... First impression matters - and that includes appearance and personality especially how a man behaves ie his conversation and jokes)
Your readiness to commit to a relationship:

You prefer to get to know a person very well before deciding whether you will commit to the relationship.

(My say: Not quite. It normally does not take me long to commit if I like a person.)

The seriousness of your love:

You are very serious about relationships and aren't interested in wasting time with people you don't really like. If you meet the right person, you will fall deeply and beautifully in love.

(My say: There is no such thing as the right person. It is up to the 2 of us to make it right. That is what I feel at least. We may be perfect for each other but if we fail to keep it going, that right person may just be the wrong person.)
Your views on education:

You may not like to study but you have many practical ideas. You listen to your own instincts and tend to follow your heart, so you will probably end up with an unusual job.

(My say: I love to study. I just hate memorising and sitting for exams or being asked on-the-spot questions. And yes, my job is unusual. Wasted my 3 years studying and wrecking my brains for Accounting, only to flush them down the toilet bowl.)

The right job for you:

You have plenty of dream jobs but have little chance of doing any of them if you don't focus on something in particular. You need to choose something and go for it to be happy and achieve success.

(My say: True...I had many dream jobs but none achieved. I ended up being in a job that I thought would be fun, but NOT...have long regretted but staying just because I need an income that can pay for my necessities and my luxuries.)

How do you view success:

You are afraid of failure and scared to have a go at the career you would like to have in case you don't succeed. Don't give up when you haven't yet even started! Be courageous.

(My say: I am not afraid of failure. I don't mind failing coz I learn from my mistakes. Just hate the idea of not being able to keep up to expectations and being looked upon as a dumb ass who just cant work.)

What are you most afraid of:

You are concerned about your image and the way others see you. This means that you try very hard to be accepted by other people. It's time for you to believe in who you are, not what you wear.

(My say: What you wear IS important. That is what you call first impression.)

Who is your true self:

You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice. People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues. Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve.

(My say: I can be a good listener. But I am not an expert in giving advice. I only love to nag.)

Pissed

22nd January 2011




I am disappointed that today didn't turn out well. The plans that I had didn't even take place.

So when turns did not turn out the way I would like it to be, I become cranky, moody...and that is ME.

And as always, when I am cranky, he will follow my mood....and when he is "in my mood", he will drive like shit. When he drives like shit, I will become more cranky.

With all the crankiness in me nearing its peak, nothing can make it better, not even if you are the president. At most, I will give you my plastic fake smile on my face.

Our dinner only made it worst. The food that I ordered had my most hateful ingredient in it - mushroom. OMG! Crankiness level - definitely maximum! No point changing coz the waiter said and I quote, "That's the only sauce we have"..this means, even if they take back my plate, at most they will only physically remove the mushrooms and give me back the same plate, which kind of like defeat the purpose.

So, Ayang was left eating on his own, while I sat there, giving my most hateful face ever to anyone who passes by the restaurant.

I am still pissed of with today, but as of now, my crankiness level has gone down to 50%.

Whatever it is, Happy 5th Ayang. ILY.

His creations during our dating days












The only thing that made me smile today is being at my buddy's wedding reception. It has been so long since we last saw each other. He is finally married to the girl of his dream and I am very happy for him. No more single-mingle my friend. Welcome to the club! : )

Five

Superb!

I have 5 big black trash bags to dispose of. All from the store room. It took me a good 2 hour to organise my store room.

Tomorrow will be another day of cleaning. Many more things to throw.

I am tired. Time for my dinner.

Good night.

Spring Cleaning

It is 4pm now.

I am alone at home. Ayang is away at work, on Thaipusam duty.


So I am doing some spring cleaning.
 
I am now at laundry #3... will be going to set #4 soon. Yes..I have that much of laundry to do today. Today is a good day to do the laundry. The sun is up.

I am frigging hungry now.

There's nothing in the fridge for me to cook besides eggs. I do not feel like going out to buy anything. I have tonnes of things to do at home today.

Maybe I'll just have the basic best meal ever...white rice and an an omelette, with black soya sauce (kicap cap kipas) yum yum yum. Oh wait..I can have sardines too.

I will do just that...NOW..

*pause*

Wow....I just had the best meal ever. I am so full and hyped up. Energy has been refilled in my system. Time to do more work.

Laundry #3 is done. Bedsheets changed. I vacuum as I go along...Need to make sure there's no dust or else I will be sneezing all through the day.

Multi-tasking as always... blogging, watching tv and cleaning up

Still deciding whether to change the curtains or not. I am loving the pink, black and white combinations that I have now.

I need to clear the store room, my cupboard, my files and probably my wardrobe too...get rid of all unused clothings that are taking up the space.
 
The time now is 5pm.

I think I will start with the store room first. Wish me luck.

F9

Spring cleaning my files and my 1998 O Level Results catches my eyes.

All these years, I always wonder. Not sure whether to be proud or ashamed.

How in the world can a so-called Science student attained these kind of grades.

Pure Physics: C6
Pure Chemistry: F9

Wahkaozz...what a failure. My science teachers probably had a heart attack back then. No 100% pass in Pure Chemistry, all thanks to me : )

I copied my homework. And even during science practical, I copied the answers from those sitting at the bench behind me. I only liked doing the practical, but not answering the questions.

I tried my best, but the book was too thick for me. It made me go crazy.

I don't understand all those stupid equations no matter how hard I tried. My text book became my sketch book during class. Physics was easier to learn but I studied at the very last minute. I guess C6 is considered good enough. Otherwise, it could have been another F9 on the report card.
The word 'tuition' does not exist in my family. My parents never sent us for tuition..never...not when I was sitting for my P4 streaming, not when I was sitting for my PSLE...never.... I did well for my PSLE though. Good enough for me...one star, 2A and 1B.

Until now, I survived on self study, even if my grades were not up to standard.
The same kind of luck lingers even when I was in polytechnic. Last minute homework aka copy -the-smart-kids-homework. Yet I pulled through my 3 years with no failures in any of the subjects.

LuckilyI did not become a teacher. Or else I would probably see many students who are like me and each time, I would be reminded of the lazy me.

The First


It's only January.....and yet I have lesser money and leave days than I should have.



And it all boils down to having his birthday and our wedding anniversary in the same month. But it's cool...all in the name of love and fun.




It has been a week since his birthday. We had an awesome time in Phuket. Hopefully on his next birthday, we shall venture elsewhere, somewhere further probably. But the thought of taking longer leave when the year just started scares me. We'll talk about it when 2012 comes.




He had his pre-birthday sabo some time before his birthday. Sabo #1 was having cake smeared all over his face. Sabo #2 was 2 days ago....ice cubes in his pants.




Tradition within the group of friends...or should I say it's revenge. Everyone gets their fair share on their birthday, be it advance or belated.




Our 5th wedding anniversary is coming up next.




Time flies....it's been 7-8 goods years of sharing our life together as a couple and I am loving each and every moment together. Of course we have our ups and downs. What matters is how we overcome each obstacle.




My plan of going to Australia with mum and dad has been cancelled. I could not get any leave slots in June. But my intention of sending them to visit my aunt there is still on. They can have their honeymoon there hehehe...Whenever you are ready Mum & Dad just let me know and I will get the tickets for you.



January has been stupendous for me. Looking forward to many other good months in 2011.

Goodbye 2010

Team Boltz 2nd Anniversary just went past.

We celebrated it with a simple dinner at Simpang Bedok and a short session of prawning at Pasir Ris Farm Way.

Simple is enough.

The company that turned up makes it a difference between boring simple and joyful simple. But of course as always, it's the latter.

And where there is cake + Jas...it is = sabo time!

We made a mess of the place but we are responsible people. We cleaned up the mess...picking up the pieces of cake that were left on the floor. Some people wouldn't even bother.

Contented and full, we left the place for a session of prawning. Ayang is beginning to show interest in prawning of late.

I am not really into fishing or prawning as I do not like the idea of seeing live things being captured. But I do stick around and join in the fun. Contradicting I know.

I especially do not like to watch documentary on wild life animals pouncing on their prey. I find it gory. Even though I know that it is normal. Natural life cycle.

2010 is coming to an end. Big deal. 2011 is just another year...another 365 days of work shit load. Another year of getting older. But as always, I only look forward to holidays, weddings and what not. Aug 2011 in particular...waiting for the debarment to be lifted. Shit that I landed myself into.

Only praying for a happy marriage, for my family and friends to be in great health, better finance.

So for those who are looking forward to celebrating the new year with a great bang, have a great time but remember safety comes first. Take care of your belongings. Take care of your body. I will be embracing the new year in bed.

Goodbye 2010!

Love is all around

**Emotional**

I may not have a perfect life and I may not be free of sins.

To those that I have hurt, I am sorry. For the mistakes that I have could have avoided, I learn from them.

No one is perfect. If this is how my life story has to be, I will readily go through it.

But I am grateful.

I am grateful that I have a beautiful family...beautiful in-laws.

I LOVE MY FAMILY. I LOVE MY IN-LAWS.

I am grateful for the bautiful friends that I have. I am grateful for any friendship that developed over time, be it BFFs, be it colleagues, be it just a facebook friend.

I LOVE MY FRIENDS.

What more can I ask for? I am satisfied.

OKB

OKB...Alhamdulillah

But the money won't stay in the bank for too long. The holiday expenses are taking up 1/3 of it.

To all fellow civil servants, enjoy your bonuses...but do remember:


  • pay your debts

  • save a bit for rainy days

**Credit Bureau screening coming up...do not be trapped in the danger zone (financial embarassment)


$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$


That aside, waiting for the arrival of my new car grill. Since COE is going insane lately and I can't change my car anytime soon. I guess I will just need to do some modification instead.

Waiting waiting.....
