Most of you probably read this before anyway.. =)

A store that sells husbands has just opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband.

Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:

You may visit the store ONLY ONCE!
There are six floors and the attributes of the men increase as the shopper ascends the flights. There is, however, a may choose any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband...

On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1: These men have jobs and love the Lord.

The second floor sign reads:

Floor 2: These men have jobs, love the Lord, and love kids.

The third floor sign reads:
Floor 3: These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids and are extremely good looking.

"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:
Floor 4: These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop-dead good looking and help with the housework.

"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!"

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads:
Floor 5: These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop-dead gorgeous, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign
Floor 6: You are visitor 4,363,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store. Watch your step as you exit the building, and have a nice day!

work politics

It's any ugly situation, no? I'm already experiencing it full impact. Everyone is friendly and helpful and the same time, trying to protect oneself. Sigh.

Love me without fear
Trust me without questioning
Need me without demanding
Want me without restrictions
Accept me without change
Desire me without inhibitions
For a love so free....
Will never fly away.

i think i am going to be very very very very busy for the next few mths. sigh. with work. is good, can learn more things. but then i will feel very underpaid. =(

clubbing is good

Just when I thought I've sworn off clubbing for good, I'm glad DK and Jo dragged me to Velvet last weekend. and of course brought Lin along. It was a blast...the other week we went Zouk it was quite boring so I really thought I was over clubbing. The music was good, the ppl were hot and my girls were lagi sizzling hot. and I think got quite some lengzais. Hahaha. Although I was totally out of shape, I've basically forgotten how to dance (think of a spastic duck with two left legs) and I alcohol INtolerance have increased, it was still fun. DK, Jo, Chee were very very very good at dancing..and I am slowly regaining my form, thanks to them. =) =) so, hooiching is back to the clubbing world la.hehee.

Cos was kinda worried lately, macam middle-age crisis only..went out with Lin almost every weekend and our topics are quite the same all the time. That we feel so old. maybe cos we no longer students d kut. the next thing we know, some are probably going to get married pulak. yorrr. and and also our singlehood lo. young and thriving, but single. I think there is nothing wrong with me, sometimes I tend to eat too much, so am overweight at the moment. But otherwise I should be normal wad. I'm a healthy, bright girl woman, with normal looks, working limbs and a good waist to hip ratio. So why am I so...single? but seriously semenjak my Final Year Project, it seemed to have killed all my hiao hormones. Like totally. I enjoy hanging out with girls rather than guys. If a guy asks me out, I am busy. If a girl asks me yamcha/dinner/lunch/movie, I will make time no matter what. Noooo!! My sexual orientation definitely hasn't changed. Just wondering what's wrong with me. I think my chances of ending up like my Xiao yi and Xiao gu is extremely high (Hot, with a successful career and also in their 30s and single). Sigh...yes I feel like a nun.

Back to work la. Transferring some files now so I can't do my work...back to wondering what's wrong with me lo.

CANNOT CANNOT. must not let my 20s pass by like that!!

Did u know about Tiramisu?

I made an amazing discovery just now. It may sound stupid, but I just discovered that tiramis├╣ is actually an Italian dessert, and in fact the name itself, tiramis├╣ is Italian, which means "pick-me-up", which also means secara metaphor is "make me happy". Ho ho ho and all this while I thought that it is a Japanese name, not necessarily Japanese cake know, just given a japanese name. Stupid me. Is it only me or everyone knew it was an Italian dessert with an Italian name?

Yes, yes, I'm working in KL now...Bukit Jalil TPM...

I scraped through!

Here I am, blogging from work again. hohoho.

I scraped thru my 1st week of work...Work's pretty ok, except the fact that the company expects me to have knowledge (like, real knowledge abt aeronautical engineering) but seems that I lack of it larrr...the moment I come out from exam hall, sudah give back to the lecturer.

Anyways, the people here are quite nice, small small company (expanding though) in a nice building in TPM...To date, I'm the only female engineer (haha) but I believe they'll be recruiting more..Boss is gtg...

Wanted to blog last nite but was totally beat when I got home. Fell asleep holding my Italian notes. Dad, if you are reading this, you'll be pleased to know that you have just bought me 3 La Senza lingeries. Hehe, swiped your MasterCard yesterday at 1-Utama. Surprise! Happy Advanced Father's Day...!

p/s: Yala yala, return you the money when I get my 1st salary larr...
