When life turns a rather depressing bleak and grey hue…
#1 You didn’t get the memo?
No, I didn’t dammit! What memo? *feels left out of the loop*
/cue late nights in the office
#2 Washing dirty laundry in public
This is my empty laundry bin. There is an equally empty wardrobe a few meters away.
I hate my laundrette with a passion. I have a very limited range of attire so I need prompt and reliable laundry services. Unfortunately the closest one to where I live is anything but.
#3 Red light district
I ran a red light just now while heading to the clinic. In my defence, it was amber when I accelerated. On the way back, I found out that the very same intersection which I took the liberty of speeding through has a red light camera from my GPS.
Yeah, just add that on to my existing summons. 🙁
Oh wait, you’ve already added it. Merde.
#4 Don’t drop the soap
I forgot to pay for my utilities, resulting in my electricity getting disconnected, promptly followed by my water supply. You know how it feels when you’ve soaped yourself up, with shampoo running into your eyes and no H20 coming out of the shower?
It feels like it’s going to be a bad day, that’s what it feels like.
#5 Bills, bills, bills
Related to #4 there’s so many it’s hard to keep track and when you don’t, official looking letters printed on red paper comes into your mailbox. God forbid you have a busy week at work following that – you’ll end up coming home to a dark apartment, with light switches that won’t turn on. No matter how many times you try. Even if you ask it politely.
#6 Fortune reversal
I lost RM 11,000 over the course of one week in New Zealand and Genting. I have a special account for the down payment of my condo later this year and this is what it currently shows. RM 27,461.04. I doubt that would get me anything more than shack under a bridge. It’s a good thing I still have RM 19,000 in cheques which I haven’t banked in.
#7 Shooting blanks
Toothpaste. Empty tubes. You can’t even squeeze a pea, nay, atom sized drop out of it…and just when you need to get ready for work too. I curse myself for not stocking extra toothpaste like my dad does.
#8 Your money hard at work
My ATM card went missing last Friday. I think I might have dropped it somewhere or (more likely) forgot to take it out of the machine due to my haste that day. I cancelled it and went to do a new one – which took me a whole hour. Why? There is one open desk with the bank personnel just sitting there, hard at work doing absolutely nothing.
#9 Plastic surgery
I don’t have a caption for this. Just look at the Outstanding Balance. >.<
#10 Workin’ 9 to 5
(except it’s more like at least 12 hours a day in my line of work)
What a way to make a livin’
Barely gettin’ by
It’s all takin’ and no givin’
They just use your mind and they never give you credit
It’s enough to drive you crazy when you if let it!
9 to 5, for service and devotion
You would think that I would deserve a fair promotion
Want to move ahead, but the boss won’t seem to let me
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me!
9 to 5, yeah they got you where they want you
There’s a better life and you think about it don’t you? 😉
Now to add a splash of color to your life!
Release all that stress and pent up frustration now! Let your hair down, grab a nice cocktail, and go wild on the dance floor!
There are three parties coming up and I’m going to head down to all of them!
Drop down the rabbit hole and lose yourself in Wonderland! There will be Alice in Wonderland costume shows, dance shows and…wait for it…
Wonderland Maids for you to take photos with!
It already sounds like an ideal party to me. 😉
There will be an orbit lightshow performance and it’s trance. Nuff said. 🙂
The biggest and the best of them all! There will be a fashion show and after that, you’ll get a chance to dance on the runway. Now that’s not something you can do every day!
Also on the menu is signature cocktails and a chance to get up close and personal (no, not in that way, the bouncers will kick you out) with the international Mixologists and create your very own cocktail!
Encore by HORECA. It’s the new party in town! Admission is free! Click for more details.
Hey, come out and play! 🙂

I get shit at work every day. Where to get tickets to the party?
Are you dressing up as mad hatter? LOL
debbie: Haha! Welcome to the club. Oh wait, I have pretty nice clients. 🙂
Entrance is free, just turn up! I’ll be there. The details are on the Facebook page. 🙂
Jester: I will if you’re going. I know you have a thing for Johnny Depp. !hi
Wonderland it is then! =D
why are u still dicking around with CRT monitors?
Eee.. all black and white pichas 🙂
wow.. i cannot imagine if all these happened to me at the same time.. O.o
KY: That is a very good question…to which I have no good answer. 😉
ahlost: Yeah, it is meant to show the bleakness of everyday life and contrast it with the fun parties coming up! 🙂
Heh! I thought it was artistic. *self praise*
i’m so there!!
Daniel Wong: Yup, there’s no cover charge! I’ll see you there! 🙂
Yeah, always darkest before dawn, as they say… meaning good news coming soon… hopefully.
cani hve ur ATM card?
i need to buy a gps can u recommend 1 ? also how did u rinse off after you soaped up?
Jeff: Yup, have been putting a lot of hours into work lately, need to have a good party (or three) to go to to blow off some steam. 🙂
foodcrazee: Sure thing bro, but not my PIN number though. 😉
jonny123: Well, I personally use a Garmin. It does well.
Anyway, I couldn’t, so I had to call the condo’s frontdesk and ask them to reactivate the water for a week until I have time to pay the bill.
They’re only open during office hours. 🙂
wish i had desk job, it looks comfortable. i slaughter cows and pigs all day. it’s cold, smells, and my coworkers suck. but the pay is good.
was it office hours when u called?
WEEN: The grass is always greener on the other side, my friend. 🙂
Hey, as long as you have good pay it’s all good.
jonny123: Yeah, that was my morning shower. 🙂
Your post is so emo 🙁
I get #1 sometimes these days because my dear nuffies prefer communicating through BBM, which I do not have.
Guess I’ll be seeing you at the Fashionista partay! It’s so near our office hehe, come by for unofficial coffee with nuffies before partying 😉
Dude, seriously, I don’t know why you are complaining. Last December, I put through 17,000 through my credit card, more like 18,000 actually, and it’s not in mickey mouse Ringgit either. You can imagine the stress I was under to pay that off before the end of the month. Before the 22% interest kicks in. Even Ah long is not that ruthless
Anyway, get your shit together and pay your power bills. Dude, it’s not cool to bring chix to a dark apartment. You can only have so many excuses why you are having a root in KL’s heat.
Last but not least, I still think it’s funny that you like the milky smell 🙂
PS: Stop wasting your life tied to a desk top. Man, it’ really sucks. Start a business and truely see the world.
michellezyenn: Haha! I thought it was artistic – emo as in B&W pictures before the colorful photos at the end and the celebration of the parties coming up!
Okay, see you at the FASHIONISTA party! It’ll be awesome, that’ll be the biggest one. 🙂
rocket: Haha! Yeah, but that takes a lot of risks too. Anyway, point of the post was how working life can be so bleak sometimes so need a party or three to cheer you up. 🙂
BTW, all 10 things are true and happened to be. :S
Man, especially that red light thing, I was surprised to see it reflected when I logged in at night.
Haha suay la, go mandi bunga 😛
#7 dam funny. R u sure it’s ur toothpaste? Hahaha,
chrisblitz: Haha! Yeah probably need to. Yup, I used ALL of that. 🙂
You going to the party bro?
what plastic surgery did u have?
jonny123: Er…none? Haha! If anything I’ll just wear a costume to the Wonderland party. 🙂
Eee.. how come no blog entry yesterday and today? O.O
ahlost: I’m a bit caught up with work. T_T
Hehehehehe.. okayy.. can’t wait for the updates. 🙂
ahlost: Thanks! Eh, you in KL during the three parties? We can go together! 🙂
oh man… i so want to go esp to the wonderland event. Seems so fun! But I wont b anywhere near malaysia for a long while 🙁
RM 27,461.04 + RM 19,000!!! Woots! Ok..how i wish i have that much of money right now…i’m bloody poor~ T.T
chrisblitz: Ah, too bad you’re not in Malaysia!
Yeah, the Wonderland sounds like it’s going to be a blast. I’m going to all three. 🙂
Joshualaw: That’s all of my savings + a bit of luck from Genting. It’s quite sad really considering I’m already 29. 🙂
Anyway, you going to the party?
it says u had plastic surgery “#9 Plastic surgery”
oh cheer up! I have my shitty days too.
what sort of work do you do?
jonny123: Oh! That’s an allusion to credit cards a.k.a. “plastic”, with surgery meaning getting rid of credit cards. 🙂
eiling: Yup, I’m fine! =D
Hey, you wanna go to any of the events? Free admission! 🙂
FASHIONISTA would be good coz it’s a Friday!
rocket: I’m in an agency. 🙂
Fuck. May as well say pimp.
What sort of agency? Pls explain lah.
ah well. and I thought I was the only one… my personal irritation, you are already running late to work, in heavy traffic, and the joy riding dipshit in front of you stops and waves in a whole bunch of cars. one or two is ok, but 5 or six? then you finaly get to the light, just in time for it to turn red…. or you have 30 min for lunch. normaly you bring it from home, could not today… the person in front of you says… gee I dont know… what is the exact calorie count of xxx and is the lettuce fresh, what kind of fish is in the sandwich… and can I substitute this for that on the value meal…. get over it, asshole, its macdonalds, its the same freakin thing on that board today as yesterday and will be there tommorow. If you want to peruse the menu, at you leisure, how about not at the busiest time of day… tick tock.. great… now I get to choke down my burger as I drive back to work….patience… be cool… I swear, next time i will get a candy bar or chips from the vending machine… or is it just me… glad I am not alone, HB.
rocket: My agency sells weapons grade plutonium to what the US calls “rogue states”. Very profitable, except my hair keeps dropping out and I look deathly pale. 😉
Haha! I don’t talk about work on my blog, you can email me if you want to. 🙂
tom: Yeah, I think we’re both Type A personalities. 🙂
We are Legion, for we are many. 🙂
The first party is tomorrow, I can’t wait to head down and grab a couple of drinks and chill.
Are u going this Weds? I might be there 😀
Yiling: Yup! I’ll be going to Eurobeats and Fashionista too! Ask the EZY sisters to go! =D
It’ll be fun. 🙂
well old friend we all have deal with some shit from i will only say as social stiffs..to even live that kind of way goes aginst the grain from living so long now with knowing i can get anything regulated or on the free side whatever my friends bring me! looks fun with your plans of alice in wonderland..unconciusily im sure that movie made me expore nearly everyking of psychactice. which has made me love taking LSD or mushies which ive always loved and my 1st its uncommen now LSD well least for me 3yrs. mate HB il be in touch from all my experience and living with sick insane mental people! looking back now im on 12mg bupe,NSRI,valium,Xanax,mogadons + my fav still after 10yrs plus is dextroamphetamine
methyldextro+++dreaming: Alas, sorry to hear that you’ve been committed. It seems like a pretty decent combo, although I’ve always prefered methadone to bupe. Cheers mate! 🙂
