jasmine, the dog

I have a dog and she
  • wakes us up at 7am sharp every morning to make sure she gets her breakfast or else she'll make sure we don't get our sleep
  • eats 3 mugs of dry kibbles ,half can of wet food, half of a average size carrot,an apple,whole lots of  snacks and she still wants our food
  • Sits,stares and taps with her paw until she gets her share during meal time,which is very hard to ignore
  • goes up to our bedrooms quietly only when we are not aware, and over turn the trash bin to form a rubbish carpet
  • pee at my bathroom, poo at my dad's bathroom,and the combination never change
  • rubs herself in our beds leaving her scent to make sure we dream of her at night
  • sleeps at least 15 hours a day
  • drinks from a cup,we have to use a plastic cup as her drinking bowl
  • steals socks from the laundry basket
  • has fetish for plastic bottle with caps
  • loves to take her nap in the middle of the clean laundry

And the list goes on....
But I love her to bits!

She is my 10kg American cocker spaniel

It's company's annual fruit party again...

As the title suggest, yes!It's my company's annual fruit party, for the past few years, it was called durian fest as we only have durian and some mangosteen+rambutans. This year, we wanted a different concept by bringing in more fruits, hence fruit party.

Of course, durian is still the main attraction.

Just to give you some background on how i became part of this. I joined Altera about 3 years ago, and not long after, someone approached me asking if I'm interested to join this group called Employee Well-Being. Yes, we have a group of people organizing activities for the company. This is not within our job-scope and not getting paid for this, yet we love it. Sometimes it could be very frustrating because top-management can be quite nasty but yeah...we stayed back because we're passionate.

My role here is mainly on communications. So whenever they need someone to send out email comm, they look for Stephanie :)

Here are the few emails comm for Altera R&D Fruit Party, the worldcup themed.

Just in case you're curious, i did all these in MS powerpoint :)

Me : are you listening to me?
GOM : yea..
Me : do you want me to continue talking to you?

Renovation in progress

wheee! My tiny apartment is in a mess now, because renovation has finally started!! 
I was so afraid that i couldn't  get the apartment ready by end of August, because i must move out of my rented place by then..

The cost of renovation is slightly on the high side, but i have no choice because i don't have time to scout around to compare price, so yeah..nvm..

the mess!

I'm addicted to floorplanner.com , this is the original floorplan. Tiny apartment is about 700sqft with really weird living room, it's not squarish which gave me a really hard time to place my 3 seater couch. I like everything to be symmetrical and this is the best i can do...

On the renovation side,the wall between the dinning hall and kitchen has been removed, making the an open kitchen, and also the sliding glass door is removed and balcony will be closed up with windows.

In progress. The glass door and wall has been removed.

The new floorplan.

The closed up balcony will be Jasmine doggie's "room", there will be a low grill with door in between.

I mainly replace old tiles/WC/basins with new ones, change old pipings to new one, do a bit of re-wiring and that's it.

Macau, Shawn and I

It was Air Asia's fault again, Shawn accidentally bought 2 flight tickets to Macau few months back because they were dirt cheap.
I was lucky because Shawn decided to sponsor everything, including my shopping...yay!!! 
that's because i told him i'm not going because i can't afford it, i am super broke now...

ok, it was a trick.

Anyway, it was really fun because both of us needed a short break real badly, and this came in just right.

so, what have i done in Macau?

DSC_4954

I ate egg tarts, lots of it.
It's so nice, i think they glaze the top with brown sugar, yummilicious

It would be perfect if we've gone there in winter

Happening in July

Some updates of myself,
I've been working 6 days a week. Yes! It is compulsory to work on Saturday because of this 20nm project which by hook or by crook has to be completed by September,
whole department has been working day and night to get this done.
Horrified! 

On the other hand, I finally bought a house of my own. hehe! Very tiny house but I love it, because it's all MINE!! 
With Dydy's sponsorship, of course. 
This tiny apartment has given me a LOT of troubles, not sure if it's just me or...it's memang like this...

It took 7 months to get the legal stuff done and i finally got my keys last week (or 2 weeks before, i don't remember). 
After that, i have problem with the parking. The previous owner doesn't remember where is the designated parking lot, and the management doesn't know either, which is stupid! 
and then, the guards has this little book which has the parking lot number. 
The problem is, the numbers on the floor has faded, and now, they don't know which one belongs to me...
FML

In the meantime, I've called up a few renovation contractors, and all of them are tied up with other projects.
NO ONE wants to take my project....
I got desperate and I called up an Interior Design company,
thank goodness he has bandwidth,
I gave him the details, and waiting for quotation, hopefully it will not be too pricey.

Meanwhile, I've ordered a foldeer sometime ago and it took about a month to arrive from France.
Foldeer is a paper origami deer trophy, it comes in sheets of paper and i need to fold and glue them together.
I love it.
Also, I finally got myself an iMac, my 7 year old macbook is dying, it shuts down depending on its mood, once it has shut down, i will need to wait overnight for it to be fully functional again.
imac has big screen, which makes me dizzy,weird.



and...i'm addicted to chalkboard paint!
I started painting everything chalkboard, it's so fun..

Love at first sight! I saw this from SSF,and super duper in love with its chevron print.
I bought it right away, and i had to carry it back home myself, put it right in the middle of my room and I'm still happy with it!
Even-though, my new house hasn't ready yet =.=

Tarbush, the middle eastern restaurant @ Bt. Ferringhi

Due to Thaipusum celebration, town was jam like mad!! Shawn took a long route to Bt.Ferringhi through Balik Pulau .....and we took an hour to reach =.= 

Thinking to try something different, we've been hearing about Tarbush but never tried. I am not adventurous when it comes to food, i always go safe and eat the same thing over and over again without being bored. So, i took quite a bit of courage to walk into Tarbush, a middle eastern restaurant.

Mesh chickpea, something must have if you are having Middle eastern food. Surprisingly good :) i like it.

I eat with pita bread

DSC_3956
er, i'm not sure what's inside, but it's cripsy and green inside, must have made out of some peas...they were served warm, yummy too. Eat with tasteless white yogurt. They have names but i'm don't remember the names at all, don't bother asking me.

Mixed grill, VERY NICE! i love the chicken, but i think the fries were a bit out of place.
