Ramblings – From Halloween to Christmas

5.47am – Cries and more cries. What on earth is happening? As much as I tried to pretend that I’m still dreaming, I could not. The cries are getting louder and it’s way too long. So I woke up and found my sis trying to calm him down while my dad makes the milk. I carried him over and calms him down. He stops crying almost immediately, a sign that he’s only thowing tantrums. I distracted him with songs till my dad finished making the milk. He drank and went back to sleep. Apparently he woke up an hour plus ago and refused to sleep. I really am very thankful that I’ve got my parents to help. Otherwise I think I will be more than a panda everyday.

7.14am – 2k more xp to level up to 28! Takes such a long time to level up nowadays…

7.31am – Oops. Forgotten that the kid has no school today. If only it wasn’t the month end, I might just take MC. Cough’s coming back again or should I say, it never actually left.

7.38am – Darn. Forgot to bring my organizer. What did I plan to do today?

7.51am – Level 28!

8.45am – Back at work. Last day of October. 2 more months to go. What should I do with it? There’s so many things that I want to do!

10.33am – Less than an hour before the Halloween event is over for Pokemon GO. Should I try and up my level? But I’m so tired…

10.52am – Rammaging through the photos in my phone. Ah… my mum’s going to nag on me for not developing the photos yet again. Am so tempted to buy that photo printer.


Here’s the lil’ hub eating the Snorlax instant noodle that we created in Japan with tomato chilli powder, kimchi, prawn, crab meat and can’t remember what’s the last one. Not too bad. Missed my holiday. I wonder when we will go back again… but at least I went before, finally.


Here’s my little milo who is growing up fast! Getting so naughty. Will try and spend more time with him. It’s so difficult to divide the time between so many parties.

1.41pm – Suddenly I recalled what happened last Friday when I was teleworking from home. Messaged my RO (who is only one grade above me) on some non-related work and then suddenly she said that hopefully our boss won’t asked where I am because teleworking needs to be approved by the MIC, and she is not my MIC. I was stunned (like vegetable), of course. My first reaction was ‘What the hell’. Why did you say ‘if you want to work from home then go on, I am ok’ when you are not the one approving. It is so bloody misleading!

Thankfully she didn’t ask and we managed to ‘cover up’ because she was late and wasn’t in the office. It was a close call. But because of this, I felt like I need to watch for my back. It’s like, last week she asked if I want to start the exercise, I told her I’m alright, just let me know what to do but now she’s doing it everything on her own again. Then how and when will she ever handover her stuff to me? Unless she don’t want to?

She seems harmless but well… I hope she is really harmless… anyway, I better try and buck up on my side and be more pro-active.

Took my lunch and ran some errands. Cleared my NTUC points and emailed to cancel it. Redeemed my IKEA points too. Then went to get a bottle of QV cream. Am so lazy for the past year but now my skin, teeth and hair are suffering. Sigh… if only maintaining all these can be easily done or at least scheduled with a press of a button. Then someone or something will guide you through it…

2.04pm – Watched one movie also so headache. Want to accompany your mum. Want to spend time with kids. See lah, it’s so difficult to spend couple time together because of one reason, we are not staying together. But whatever, I am done discussing with you on that lest we end up arguing AGAIN. I will just skip this movie or alternatively, go and watch on my own.

3.16pm – I just waited for 30 minutes on the phone, trying to talk to the customer service personel from OCBC. Goodness! Now I remembered why I didn’t really want to have any relation with this bank! And that NTUC lady isn’t that friendly in the email. Something’s so wrong with our customer service people.

3.27pm – Why are you so irritated today? Because I didn’t bring my organizer, and I accidentally spilled the soya sauce, then the lil’ hub couldn’t decide on watching the movie, and I waited half an hour for OCBC lousy customer service. Now I’m hungry ‘cos I’m trying to diet and thus didn’t finish up my rice but yet I’m not supposed to snack. I’m sleepy die to the disturbed sleep and now I am extremely grouchy!

4.50pm – Oh yes. Almost forgotten. The MIL had decided to go back to her house during that ‘homeless’ period. Actually more or less expected. Who would want to stay in other people’s flat when you’ve got your own. It will be at least from 3 to 6 months. Sigh… which means I can’t bake too.

4.59pm – Oh yes! Did I mention that I finally hatched a Lapras?! Yup, I did! And the 10k egg came from Kyoto, at a small fountain. I was telling the lil’ hub that it will be a Lapras because there are water (though it’s really small) and who knows it really is! Got a dratini and scyther as well from the other 2 eggs that I got it elsewhere. Am hatching another one now at 9.5km. Hopefully I will get another Lapras! *Lol* Maybe I should start walking now.


5.51pm – Stop tempting me. I am not going to eat you even though I am hungry. (Apparently eating half a bowl of rice can’t last me till the end of a work day)
