Back from a Blog Vacay - Hello 2018!

Hello, 2018! ✋
MIA-ed for half a year from this space, nope, I didn't quit, just that I was thriving in reality.

Just two weeks after my Degree finals, moved on into a new phase of my life (not married lar), managed to find my way into the much anticipated working world.


Just in case you are a long lost friend, who wondered what on earth I am/was doing:

SEPTEMBER 17

  • Finals (as usual trying to ace the entire sem in probably a week)
  • Job hunting
  • Phone interviews > face to face interviews > decision making
  • Started my first graduate job as a BDE (guess yourself what scope is it :P)
OCTOBER 17

  • A personal car had to be bought earlier (in October), dear old car drown in the Penang flash flood (having bronchitis or ashma.could not be a heavy duty pal anymore...)

NOVEMBER IS NON-EXISTENCE 
(cuz I have forgotten what I was doing nor have done anything spectacular in that month)

Suddenly recalled, I've graduated from Degree in 25th November 2017.
Can't blame me, two months in the working life then only get back to graduate...
Anticipation level = 0.01
Anyways sincerely thanks to FAMA for supporting my education for 10+ donkey years from Kindergarten > Degree
Family shot with one of my fav. lecturer aka Ms. Mary

Some of Infinity Dodgeball teammates from WOU, managed to drag all of them to take this group picture during Graduation Dinner @ Hardwicked Restaurant.  Great job juniors for putting this simple party together!

Ivanbb: Somewhere we can bring Ching Ching (his 11 years old toy poodle along).
Me: Oh ok...so whereto leh?
Ivanbb: Hawker places lo.  Just wear cincai will do.
Me: (afraid of being overdressed or uncomfortably dressed) Cincai pull out a white blouse bought from the flea and shorts.
In the car
Me: Why are you dressed in long pants & such nice shirt?  Not hot meh? Eh Ching Ching leh?
Ivanbb: Oh cuz I am lazy to change...ok la...I'm not as hot as you.  Decided not to bring her out cuz lazy to go back to get her (still remain unsuspicious).

Me: Where are we going?  Tell me la, I can direct you.
Ivanbb: I don't want to let you know where we are going but I am not sure of that place...but I've reserved a table for two already.
Me: ???? Reserve what?  Need to formal one meh? You don't tell me you book a restaurant or fine dining...I'm dressed in my market attire nia leh (panicked...can I go back & change?? u seriously....continued questioning....)

Christmas Dinner 2017 with love


Appreciate what you have done but please give me heads up to dress appropriately, please...I beg you.  It was a hugely successful surprise but tbh...I simtia for your pocket...with the amount of $ I can totally make a meal with ingredients like scallops, huge ass prawns, salmon, codfish, caviar kind of dinner for us.  Let's do it this year, shall we +Ivan Tan ?
  • Spent a year working as a mascot lead in Ipoh lol 30th Dec 17- 1st Jan 18
+Ivan Tan & Yours Truly...guess which mascot am I?  I was supposed to be leading the mascots but ended up tempted to try being in it once cuz #yolo.  The fact is...Aeon Ipoh was too generous with their air-cond, so I decided that the best place to keep my body warm is in the mascot lolol.

Managed to bring the guys to some of my frequent fav spots in Ipoh before coming back home.
