I've been on the go for the past few days.
Last Saturday, I was involved with the Career Fair held at Suntec City. Even though I was there only in the afternoon, it felt as if I was there for the whole weekend! It was so tiring and draining. I believed that during the hours I was there, I spoke to the most number of people in my entire life. Many apologies to those who approached me wanting to know more about the jobs available. I myself wasn't sure what I was talking about. All the best to all of you who submitted the application forms.
Sunday was a reunion of sorts with PT, HT, KT and Maia. The last time I saw Maia was back in Jan when we had the weekend in Batam and boy, has she grown much since then! Hopefully it wouldn't take so long for the next get together!
Tuesday, I attended a team-building course sponsored by my company and conducted by Focus Adventure. By far, its the most entertaining & best course I've attended so far. Can't remember having so much fun with strangers. Even thought the attendees are also from my company, they are all from different departments and subsidiaries, based throughout Singapore. Thus the chances of me working or even meeting them are slim to nothing!

The men outnumbered us like 3:1 so for most of the group activities, I somehow ended being the only chick in the team. By having the course held at Sentosa, it's like having a short holiday away from Singapore. Works wonder for me cos I'm getting sick of going to work! HR claimed that they'll be sending staff for at least 3 courses per annum. It's September and its my first for the year. I doubt they will squeeze 2 more for me by the eond of the year. Oh well, its better than nothing!
13th Sept is the start of the Ramadan month. I'm sympatised with the people of Sumatra. Here in Singapore, you hear people recounting their experiences with the tremors and evacuation out of thier office buildings whereas our neighbours are losing sleep cos they just lost their homes, livelihood, families and lives. May god bless all of you!

Thanks to Ms PT again, she managed to snag great seats for the upcoming Linkin Park's concert. Yippeee!!! She even sent us an email as to where we will be at. Had decided not to take the free standing tickets as we're sick of seeing the boys in between people's heads. (Maklumlah, kita semua nie pendek-pendek belaka).

I can still remember buying their Hybrid Theory album at HMV like a week before I depart for Mecca in June 2000. Back then, they didn't get any radio airplay in Singapore's airwaves. A few years after that, I was so hyped to hear that they will be coming to Asia but unfortunately they did not make a stop in Singapore. Somehow, lady luck must be smiling on us cos my then classmate, Jo, knew someone and managed to get mosh-pit tickets for us for the KL concert at Merdeka Stadium on 15 Aug 2003. We left the stadium wet, achy and deaf! The second time was at the Padang on 22 Jun 2004, which I'm embarrassed to admit that I passed out and Alan had to drag me out of the crowd. That was also the concert that my ex-colleagues chipped in to pay for my ticket for my bday prezzie. At long last, after 4 years, they are coming to Singapore again, and this time they will be performing at the Indoor Stadium. Allegedly, Aisyah is paying for my ticket as a belated bday present cos till date she has yet to get me anything. Fat chance I'll forget what she promised me!
