My special day

It marks the day where I passed my mid of twenty, another phase of my life. It makes me ponder more about my retirement. Should we try to save more money and grow more money so that we can retire earlier? Work is such a routine job. Maybe I should consider switching soon. Opps…

My day started off with a nice lunch at jacks’ place. As Hb says the other day that ”it’s a long time since we lasted went to Jack’s place to eat”, hence I decided to treat him with lunch there. The price is pretty reasonable. Both of us had a grilled fish set (consists of soup with a slice of garlic bread, the grilled fish, a slice of cake and a cup of tea). It costs me less than $20 for 2. ;) *No pixs taken for this*

Then we head off to kinokuniya. I intend to get some knitting books. BUT I end up with some fashion magazine instead. We also went to borders but did not manage to finish any books tat I wanted. Really wondering is knitting really that popular nowsaday or there isn't any demand for the books anymore. :( As it was raining super heavily, we went to the MacCafe to drink cappuccino. Enjoy the cool and wet weather.

The sky was so dark. But it was still a happy day for me.

Before we head off a dinner, I had a surprise gift. A wallet .

Dinner is at The line at Shangri-La hotel. The variety of food is good and the price is definitely good too. As the place is not really that easily accessible, I thought that it would not be crowded who know the place is almost full. Luckily I keep reminding hb to make reservations. The deco of the place is very nice with white and orange color. The cakes and pastry look super nice.

This was just a portion of the dessert. :)

We ate for about 3 hours before we decide to go home. Note: The table besides us had already served 3 different groups of diners. *LOL* It was still raining when we headed home. Although it is a raining day, my day is not gloomy at all.

N72 is what I had for my birthday pressie. Thank dear I love the phone. It is a pink color phone. Hb has been doing researching on which handphone suits me more. My current handphone is giving me problems with the screen. Hence it is time to change one. After more research, hb think that I should have a camera that has at least 2MB as I had to take picture for my blog. With a good handphone camera, I would not have to take my camera around. Thanks dear thank you. I love the phone and I decide to name the handphone pinky.

I decide to take a pix of my icarus to show the progress. Here is it. Hopefully I can finish it soon. *Keeping my fingers crossed*

New Workplace

Well I finally had moved or rather stationed at my client's place. I would say I really MISSED my previous client. LOL although the previous client place is rather inconvenient but it has a nicer working environment, better PC, has Internet access, using MSN is legal, free coffee etc.

NOW I had a not so good computer, a very small area for 3 of us to squeeze in and NO internet access. I had to forgo the idea of using MSN in office for the next few months or years but this is not the main issue. The main issue is that I cannot find any information whenever i need to and I might need to note them down and find them only at night.

Hmm, but there are 2 plus points of this client's place. (1) location is more central meaning i can meet up with my friends easier. But do i still have the time to meet my friends after work as the project goes on? I really don't know. (2) There is a cafeteria meaning I can go for tea break. yeah!!! Similarly i need to ask myself do i have the luxury or time to go? Sighz..
