Its the One thing…

This job is one of stamina, perserverence, sweat, tears, mental trauma, dilligence, long working hours, support, and MOST IMPORTANTLY….


I pray every night before i go to bed, i pray in the morning when i’m in the shower, i pray when things go wrong, i pray when things go smoothly…. i think i just have to TRUST and have FAITH…. When there’re lots of set backs, i start doubting that things would ever turn for the better. Now that it has, i do believe that its not because of my hard work, but because of him above.

Hmmm.. it is a good thing to have those daily devotionals sent to my office inbox.

i’m sick. ugh. but i cant wait for MJ session! 🙂

Pre Monday Blues

The weekend just wheezed by.

After Timbre on Friday with the ladies, i slept till 3pm on sat (gosh)
Sat was…. (wait, let me try and recall)… oh! yes! Fantabulous home made prawn noodles, computer games, DVD, and Geylang Frog leg porridge….
As for today, its sleeping till 1, then Channel 55 + Long John, Manhattan Fish market for dinner, then movies and Gelare!

That’s life. That’s a Freggin good life which i never want it to end! sigh. it’s monday soon… 😦 totally dredding it. why cant i not go to work????

Guess the grass on the otherside’s always greener…. some may think that i’m having a good life cuz of the $$$ i’m able to make now… others think it’s nice to work at the CBD area and wear suits and pretty stuff… I do admit that those are the “finer” things in life and i am enjoying myself from time to time…. The convenience of having a train station near my home and working at raffles place.. wearing OL clothings… blah blah blah…..

Then i think back… I’m growing up too fast for what i can handle i guess. Im getting a little too complicated for my own liking. But i’ve always been a complicated person!!! i’m only simpler to those around me. I wanna be like prisc where she flies around, and see the world, and wear nice clothes made for 4 seasons… i wanna be like key (going to) be in a world where it’s complicated yet simple, might be a little dry but yet stable… I also wanna be like charlie where i stay so near work, and is already very used to the environment and setting, and knows she can thrive in there…

u see… i’m already getting the pre monday blues syndrome. lol.
Life’s really a give and take. I get paid for the stress, trauma, emotional roller coaster, long hours etc… In turn, i pay it with my lack of sleep, lack of social life, lousy complexion, unmanicured toes (ugh! i MUST get it done this week).

Maybe life’s fair after all.
we just have to make it work… despite all the shit that’s thrown on you everyday. I will survive… And do VERY WELL in whatever i do.

yes i will.

Have a great week everyone!
