Christmas coundown in Upper Penang Road

Sad but true,Christmas in Penang feels a little pathetic, i don't see much decorations in the malls, and not much celebration at work too :(

Luckily, i still have a bunch of friends who are crazy and fun to celebrate this joyous season with me.

My farewell party

Last friday marked my last day at Spansion, today, i'm blogging from my new company. Yes, I'm currently working in Altera.

I never thought i would have the courage to resign, it's not easy ok! especially when i'm so comfortable and happy. But we're human being, we always wanted something better, and won't mind the risk.

Throughout my 3 years in Spansion, I've grew so much, met tones of great people and made a few good friends. Life has been serving me quite well, I'm always very lucky in everything, always met the right person at the right time, do the right thing when there are opportunities.

I supposed the most unforgettable event was the mega-retrenchment whereby 70% of employees was forced to leave. I never cried easily in public but that time, i couldn't help myself...i bursted into tears when i had to see my colleagues leave.

I decided to hold onto it when the company's was at its lowest point, ironically,i chose to leave when it's doing pretty well now.

Anyways, I had a few farewells lunches and parties during my last week of work, THEY WERE CELEBRATING MY LEAVING! alright, joking..so here're the pictures, at UPR.

Moved again

I know it's terrible, in 3 years and I've moved 4th time already. The worse thing is that i have tons of things and a normal car is unable to fit in all. Every time i move to a new place, i will need to hire lorry services and at least 2 person to help me.

Last year, i terrified Sim with the amount of things i have and he warned me not to move house in at least a year's time. This year, Jeewei said the same thing, LOL! I can't help it, u can't blame me for having so much things, i don't go home often and i have all my things here in penang with me.

Anyway, packing and unpacking was quite fast and smooth, thats because I've been repeating this so many time already.

Here's a picture of my old place, it was quite warm and dark at times. But i guess the main reason i dislike the place is the neightbourhood, too noisy and messy.

and my new room...

I'm so in love with the windows and the amount of sunlight i get in the day time. It's always very windy, there was one night it was so windy that i slept without the fan and it's still super cold.

I didn't bring in any furnitures but my craft table and the shelf.

I also love the fact that i can doze off in my bed while watching TV.

The living hall, and it's equally windy, a lot of times, we don't have to on the fan.

The dining area..
