current mood: full
Work is officially killing me.
Been working on this project for almost 2 weeks now, and have come to realise that
I cannot remember the last time I got off work before 10pm, or the last time when I walked out of the office when it was still bright. I don't even have the energy to go online and just surf, or come home in time to catch the 9pm show, or the 10pm news for that matter, not that I was ever an avid fan of either of those shows but the fact that I could watch them whenever I wanted to and whenever I felt like it made all the difference.
The only TV I've watched in the last couple of days was Mr Bean during dinner in the pantry last night, on that huge swanking plasma TV that I'd rather not have a chance to discover how wonderful the resolution is, or how brilliant the surround sound is.
Aside from burning the last 2 weekends (yes, including Christmas weekend), I should qualify the so far Grinch-post by saying that Christmas hasn’t been all that bad.
I have a pretty lovely Christmas to be honest.
Christmas Eve was spent at Mama Wang's house catching up with the girls, where she proceeded to stuff us with turkey, an assortment of saussages, cheesy mash, amongst other stuff. (yes, there was so much food that I can't even remember half of the stuff that I put into my mouth!)
It was great meeting those girls again, especially since it feels like we are drifting further now that we've all grown up and forced to do the whole rat race thing.
Christmas Day, AA and I managed to get to mass, albeit an Indonesian one which we didn’t understand most of what was being said. But Christmas mass being one that is basically traditional, we got through most of it on the rationale that it's similar to the usual Christmas mass conducted in English. (which wasn't very far from the mark la) Christmas carols in Bahasa Indonesia wasn’t too bad actually, and I quite enjoyed the caroling that they did for a good 20 minutes.
Then it was off to dinner at Coduroy and Finch later. I had the grilled seabass, and AA had the chicken breast. (pardon me for not quite remembering the fancy names lol) For all that hype from Shannon, food was good but not great. Well at least to me it was lacking the omphh factor. Guess we should have tried the desserts, since they came highly recommended, but by the time dinner was done, I was so stuffed I could barely feel my legs.
Goodbye 2006, I'm all ready to welcome 2007 with a giant milk chocolate toffee brownie truffle shake.
