My Morning Song

i'm not a morning person. Very much NOT.

My 1st job, after I left my degree course, was a job beyond my wildest dreams..

1 - new department, so everybody is with equal knowledge on the system.

2 - working hours, 1.30pm-11.00pm

3 - Desk job with continuous high speed LAN connection, which of course promised a continous internet connection

4 - Personal ext number with free access to call any parts of the world

5 - Spacious workstation

Life was great and I loved my job!

Anyways, as time went by, promotions came and new functions introduced, I was thrown to the normal working hourse, 8am-5.30pm.
That was when I realized a new thing about me...I am definitely, not a morning person....hey i tried for more than 3 years adjusting myself to the working hours!!

i can't bring myself to get up every morning. OK, i woke up at around 6.30 or 6.45 for the morning prayers, but i can't seem to keep myself from not going back to sleep. It's just that, the humidity..and the moment is too prescious for me to wasted it with a warm or hot bath (or cold esp..) or simply begin the day with any human
So, i pulled my comforter and took a nap..

I usually took around 1/2 hr 2 arrive at the office, just in time for my morning meeting, from the moment i get out of bed. My fastest record was 20mins, and i got a speeding ticket in front of the golf club. bloodyhell..of all days.

i even clocked the time 4 my weekday 1/2 morning routines

1 - get up from bed, take a bath : 10 mins

2 - get dressed : 5 mins3 - run downstairs, oops..forgot my socks, run back up and down, (good excercise in the morning)..check what's good in the kitchen to tapau for bfast (all types or nasik goreng and bihun goreng)..huh, mee goreng? no, thanks..(kembang tekak makan mee), bancuh ribena in my sports bottle, salam my parents (aku abah, akum mak,jida p dulu..byee! i blv, a proper intro in the morning and goodbyes to my parents in the morning guarantees me with a miracle parking space near to the office), grab my shoes, rush to the door, put on my socks and shoes, open n shut the door, start the car engine - warm it up, open the get, get back the in the car and look at the watch see how much time leftall the above steps took around 5 mins.

4 - reverse my car and drive to the mainroad : 3 mins (yes, i calculated many times..)

5 - from mainroad to right in front of office lobby, scan in : 7 mins
Total : 30 mins.

6 - morning meeting

7 - go back downstairs, drive to the parking lot at another building and walk back to the office : 7 mins

Never ever doubt me on this.

Of all the steps above, i can't understand why da heck my bath has to be in 10 mins every morning. I did try to minimize it, many times, bt it jsut has 2b 10 mins..and NO, i do not stop and look at myself in the mirror at anytime within the 10 mins. I guess this is where my morning song comes.
I don't know how it is with other people, but, i noticed that, there is always, always a song playing in my head during that 10 mins.
last 2 days was Ezlynn's bersamamu

yesterday was Here without you

this morning was, Don't phunk with my heart

I noticed that, the 10mins is the time when my mind in a really passive mode and my subconscious mind plays a song every weekday morning. I was subconsciously humming 2 a song..until my conscious mind becomes alive..usually at the 10th or 11th minute.

I haven't noticed this during the weekend tho, i was either asleep until nearly noon and my conscious mind will wake me up.Or.. if there is an activity, i'd be too excited planning and thinking about it from the very 1st minute.

Just like my mom who can't stand an unwashed laundry regardless of any circumstances, i can't stand of letting my mind become idle at any time, even when i'm in the toilet (and the toilet is in a good condition..) I guess that somehow explains my sub-conscious mind and my morning songs..I'd be glad to know if there is anyone else like me.

The mega sale carnival

So, the mega sale carnival for this year finally begins, and the 1st day was on Saturday last weekend. Not that this is a much awaited event in my calendar but hey, a change in environment sometimes is a feast for the eyes. Unlike last yr (or for the last 2 yrs maybe) the carnival was 3 times a year..april, august and december..if im not mistaken. Then the businessmen complained and gov changed it to once a yr but the event is within 2 months’ time. Id really like to see, how things will be compare to last time.

I went out with a friend on that Saturday, to megamal prai n pacific but it felt like going out on a weekday..the store was under renovation in a few places and they hanged about 5 or 6 small, ignorable, mega sale banners. We were thinking, this doesn’t even look like a Saturday…let alone a mega sale day…weird..but I know IKEA and IKANO held an offer on that weekend..dats all I know about things in KL. Whadda heck, I’m more concern with the northern region.

Anyways, aside from that, the PC fair is going to happen within the same month. I have to say that I am more excited waiting for the PC fair next two weeks. I’d really like to compare the items they’re going to offer with the previous ones. One thing for sure, I’m not falling into a made in china mp3 players.. I bought one for my sis and we found out that..

1 – the quality is different.. some functions does not work after some time
2 – the feeling is different.. definitely.

I’m thinking of getting a dvd burner, sound card and graphics card for my pc..i hope they wont cost me more than rm300.. budget.. budget.. last pc fair on april, my budget was tight, I opted for a dvd combo that I have fully utilised the thing, I am not satisfied.. mom might say I wasted on it in the 1st place.. but I think it’s worth it.. as for the graphics card, I really really hv to get one, I mean, my AMD 2.0gig processor is such a waste if I don’t test it with games, rite! Hmm.. I might help myself with an extra RAM.. who knows, rite?

P/s : AMD is bullshit. It’s powerful yes, but almost all my other hardwares flunked, even my power supply, can u imagine, I had to invest in casing with xtra fans and what not because of the over heating problem.. does anyone think or feel I am exaggerating here?

Much ado about the mega sale carnival, I’m looking fwd to check on sum of the branded stuffs,
Here goes my list
1. nike dry-touch cap ; normal price rm59 no discounts so far this yr

2. timberland boots for ladies.. mind u ; normal price rm500, 20% is the highest discount offered in gurney plaza parkson store, before the sales. My fren has been dying to hv one. Esp the one with the brand at the back of the shoes…ooh.. the feeling of unbelievable and envy eyes on them when u’re riding the escalator… hahahaha.. it’s good to feel naughty sometimes (p/s : riding? Is it correct?)

3. I don’t know, maybe scholl sandals for my parents’ 26th anniversary. Mom used to hv one, and she loved it and still r’bers it until now. So, like the credit card add, ..the look on your loved one..priceless..

4. Those electrical stuffs for my house.. I have a list of the must have stuffs, but of course, just want to see how much they would offer during this time of the yr.. would it be of any help if the tokeh already recognized me?

testing...testing..i have just created my 2nd blog..i don't think id like to c'nue with my prev was just trial and error, and i dont think i like the name either.

i dont plan to make this blog as a part of my daily life, but, just, i do have a lot of things, heavy or light, xtreme or mainstream,.. in my head. and rather than pouring them on my frens or siblings, i know sum of them will not be able to accept my point of view, so, i thought, maybe id try this blogging thing.

reading and browsing thru other people's blogs is something ive been doing for the past, umh, 3 say i like reading other people's stories and opinions, and i do respond to some that really caught my attention,but, anyhoo, as im writing this, i do not feel like,me-blogging, as my thing. guess i should just wait and see.
