Ranting And Rambling

Intercourse? What comes to our minds when that word is mentioned...

One of my friends like to joke about that whenever we couldn't find him in the office. When he replied he went for Intercourse, immediately we know he meant he went for a few days course.. lol...

Do you like to go for courses? Whether it is official courses, church courses, part-time courses.. whatever course you might think of, I would immediately reply you... "Please, don't choose me....."

I find solace in my own shell, that is my homely home.... I love to stay at home.... if online groceries is possible in Ipoh, I would love to do them without driving the car out and spending more unnecessarily....

Someone asked me to be a full time content writer.... writing 500 words for only $2usd!! Gosh, for 500 words and doing research on the article, is it worth getting a post for only RM6? Not to say that money has a "stale smell" but then for RM6.00... er.... err... sigh....

From tomorrow onwards till Thursday, if I did not post up anything, it means there is no wifi... no wifi means no post...But I hope there is WIFI.... breathe... breathe......cos no wifi means no oxygen...!!

by the way, my laptop in trouble!

I cannot close it.... due to one side broken
Cannot close means I cannot take it anywhere I go..
Should I get a new laptop or a netbook?
Any suggestions?

  2. If you are working for people grab all the intercourses as much as possible. First its FOC, second you get paid even when you are not 'working' in office and lastly what ever you learned are all your asset why waste them.

  3. Get the hinge repaired no big deal unless you think your lappie is not to your specs and wanna have an ungrade then get a new baby. Sorry no idea about netbook. My biz lappie got changed on the right side hand side and a year later the left gave way.

  4. I loved going for intercourses - a welcome break from the daily routine. Otherwise, so boring...same thing every day. My daughter's old laptop also had a problem, changed new one...same thing again - now have to open and close slowly so will not get stuck...but still ok, can use and can bring here and there. Now I use when travelling...

  10. i dont mind going for courses but it has been XX years since i last attended one in my previous job, they provide courses and trainings on and off , which i think it's really beneficial to the staff and the company itself and they dont mind paying you for everything ..even in overseas. See how they really stress the importance of courses and trainings?

  11. I thought you like to travel, you are always going such interesting places!! And eating new and different things. How did your laptop break, if you are like me you are very stressed out about it! Better than my son, he left his open, and during the night their cat came over and threw up all over the keyboard. Of all the places in the house, this is where the cat chose to vomit! Maybe you show this to a computer repair person, maybe just the hinge needs changed. But if your computer is getting slow and you want a new one, this is a good excuse!!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
