It’s Not that Easy Bein’ Green

It’s not that easy bein’ green;
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves.
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold,
Or something much more colorful like that.

It’s not easy bein’ green.
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things.
And people tend to pass you over
‘Cause you’re not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky.

But green’s the color of Spring.
And green can be cool and friendly-like.
And green can be big like an ocean,
Or important like a mountain,
Or tall like a tree.

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why,
But why wonder why? Wonder,
I am green and it’ll do fine, it’s beautiful!
And I think it’s what I want to be.

Looking Forward

I WANT TO:

1. Quit my current job. Someone in the office shares the same resolution as me as well. How do I know? Well, in the office pantry, there’s a white board that all of us could scribble on. We can write just anything or draw just anything. A few days before the new year, someone wrote the title “My 2006 New Year Resolutions”. Item #5 read “Quit the company”. I just want to look for a job that I love doing. The next second job that I would land myself with might not directly be that dream job, but at least I hope to make it a step closer.

2. Exercise religiously. I know I can do this one pretty easily. That’s because I’ve signed up for gym which means I’m paying for it so I’m not going to waste my money just like that.

3. Remember. Ever since I’ve started working, I’ve treated my work as the largest thing in my life that I sometimes forget the little things. It’s normal to feel that way I guess because you always want to do your best in your first job to set a good foundation in whatever that you’re doing. I think about my customers even after work (of which I’m sure they won’t be thinking about me after work) that I start to forget about the things I should do for myself, my parents, my sister, my other half and friends. I must remember to call my parents instead of them calling me. I should check on them instead of them checking on me. I should care about how my sister is doing in her studies. I ought to put in more effort to care more about him. I should check on my friends once in a while to see whether they are doing fine.

4. Speak more effortlessly and more spontaneously. This has always been a must-have New Year Resolutions every year because sometimes I do have problem speaking out, speaking up. No problem if you want me to write because that’s what I do best but not speaking. I don’t like to talk much but I must make myself talk when it’s necessary.

5. Eat more fruits.

I DON’T WANT TO:

1. Give up.

2. Be miserable even if I get pushed around, taking orders non-stop from other people, being ranted at and worse, getting scolded at work. This is not an easy one but I will try.

3. Close my eyes. I don’t want to fall asleep. Cause I’d miss you, baby. And I don’t wanna miss a thing.

4. Be anything other than what I’ve been trying to be lately. All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind.

5. (minus the “to”) Another pretty face. I don’t want just anyone to hold. I don’t want my love to go to waste. I want you and your beautiful soul.

2006 is Here!

How did I spend the first day of the new year?

Dashed to the kitchen at the strike of 12 and at the sound of thunder.Admired the beautiful fireworks both of One Utama and Ikano through the windows. It was quite a sight with the beautiful colours and the frightened crows who flew directionless. I was like a small girl, went “wah wah wah” with Mummy each time a new firework came alive.

Iris couldn’t stand it, she went, “Eh, please lar!”

Morning.

It started off with brunch at Bandar Sri Damansara. Then, it was a date with Kong, at One Utama GSC Gold Class.

“Nice or not the movie?” Asked a mother after the show in the washroom.

The little girl didn’t say anything so I presumed she nodded her head.

“What happened to King Kong?”

“He die. Die on the floor.”

“Why did he die?”

“He fall down.”

Well, it was actually Beauty who killed the Beast. But I like the way she replied. Simple and not as complicated as “Beauty killed the Beast”.

It was raining then when we got out of the cinema but we still had somewhere to go and I wasn’t really sure why we are going there at the time of us going there.

We were at the Buddhist Maha Vihara, otherwise known as the Brickfields Buddhist Temple, for the Universiti Putra Malaysia Buddhist Society’s 40th Anniversary. I only discovered just now that my Pappy used to be an ex-President of the Society 23 years ago which was why we were there because he was invited to grace the event a little.

And since he was an ex-President, we were categorized under the VIP guests where everyone clapped their hands when we entered the hall ( I feel shy la! My first time becoming a VIP.) and we were seated at the first row.

I brought back some books that were on free distribution. Hopefully I would understand “The Purpose of Life” which was one of the books I took home with me.

Happy New Year!

Looking Back

This would be the first entry of this new blog of mine, written on the last day of the year 2005.

I’m very grateful that my parents are over in KL to usher in the year together with me and my sister. Pappy has already “booked” us one week in advance. We will be going for countdown and then watch “King Kong” tomorrow. Pappy bought Gold Class tickets because the rest were sold out and he just can’t wait any longer. It would be my first Gold Class ticket ever!

Now, it’s time to look back on what happened in Year 2005.

January: Attended my first job interview. Got myself a boyfriend. Woohoo!

February: Attended a few more interviews. Flew back home during Chinese New Year. Foo Foo came into my life (She’s the cutest toy rabbit I’ve ever seen.)

March: Secured my first job totally out of my field of studies. Didn’t really care because what matters is I’ve got a job.

April: My graduation day. Pappy got me a new mobile phone – Nokia 3230. Wee!

May: Working very hard.

June: Received my confirmation letter and my new car. Ate the most special plate of Nasi Goreng Pattaya because someone painted “HAI SAYANG” on the omelette. Eeeee!

July: I turned 23 and my manager, supervisor and colleagues celebrated my birthday at TGIF.

August: Working even harder.

September: Went for a 10 day trip to Eastern Europe with my family. Was awarded “E-Commerce Performer” for month April- August.

October: Starting to hate my job.

November: Sick and tired of my job. Signed up for gym.

December: Received my first bonus.

All in all, it wasn’t too bad a year even though I’ve been quite bitter, angry and upset many a times at work. It has been quite an experience and it’s just the beginning of it. Starting a new day everyday is made easier with the support and love of family, friends, loved ones and readers. I hope the new year brings even more excitement and fulfilment.

Happy New Year to all of you!
