It is insane 3.24am on Monday morning and instead of being fast asleep and cuddled up next to hubby, I’ve been on typo-whacko mode for the past 4 hours and counting. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever stayed up this late on any given weekend in the past 2-3 years over work. And granted that this weekend is the only one I’m getting before I step onto new territory end next week – it sure doesn’t feel good that I’m not enjoying much of it.
Last Friday was my last day at MS, and it feels nothing like the 1st time I left a company. I was not quite as emotional, not quite as free as I thought I would be (pressumbly due to me being sick for most of the last week) and instead I was running around from desks to desks doing handovers, replying the last of emails, updating handover documents, answering calls and trying to hang up as soon as I could – politely. It was madness maximus and something I quite didn’t expect. There was a team dinner scheduled but because I really wanted to clear work and I couldn’t eat anyway due to the 3-day-old wisdom tooth wound, I passed. Met the rest of the team at Winebar to celebrate the boss’s farewell party instead, but I was quite bummed out that I couldn’t drink any alcohol to celebrate along, and I was utterly hungry…so food was on my mind than anything else for most of the time. Which explains why I left after 1.5 hours later…in search of some teochew porridge.
The weekend went by quite painfully in terms of food. I moan in misery as I watched the husband and friends eat dim sum, ramen, fried rice, pork knuckles, mcdonalds. Most of them tried to comfort me that I could lose some weight in the process. But honestly, I rather the food. I sort of fainted in the loo on Friday morning while getting ready for work on my last work day due to lack of energy! And that alone was enough to scare me that I loaded up on a medium tub of whipped potato for lunch that day from KFC. It has got to be the best tasting food I had all week since the op!
Meanwhile, other news that happened this weekend:
(1) Mum took a well deserved break to hainan island with the ladies. I’m sure they’re having a blast!!!
(2) Celebrated Matt Lau’s 10th birthday. But still, I couldn’t eat any of the good food on the table nor any of the 2 cakes. 🙁
(3) Watched Jennifer’s Body. It was really all about Jennifer’s Megan Fox’s body.
(4) Finally got started on the magazine reading activity I’ve been reminding myself all week about.
(5) Caught Ice Age 3 on DVD. Mm. I think I’d like UP better. It had better not disappoint.
Meanwhile, Bren’s back from her hols too, so I can’t wait to do some catching up too. Facebook msgs are so not good enough to tell someone the full details of anything!
Ok, if time permits within this week, I’ll be posting up some photos taken since Friday too. You’ll be able to witness how chip-munkfied I look!
Till then, sweet dreams.
