I've an androgynous charm, which makes myself popular with all genders. But I don't like my weak side to be seen. I might look cool on the surface but beneath it all, I'm really Passionate. Only people who know my true self can maintain a long-lasting relationship with me.

Bye bye..

Wow - I'm surprised with how long I have not been blogging, I guess that tells me how not bothered I am these days with writing stuff...


Well, I don't see myself continuing or setting up another blog website but Facebook is kinda interesting to use - so I think I'm abandoning this place....

See you in Facebook! ;-))

I was this close....to submit my resignation...

My employment agency has been very patient with me since the first POTENTIAL role I applied through them. When I didn't get much out of the first application, they have been quite persistent with introducing new vacancies to me which suit my criteria of skills, experience and qualifications. Within the last 3 weeks, I've been put through to 3 different new jobs applications but I wasn't up for jobs when they needed someone to travel across Regional Victoria.

This time around, he got me a phone interview at Invizage as they are recruiting a new team for their Remote Desktop Support department. I even used 8 hours to prepared for a 15mins brief interview but it was all worthwhile when the OM liked the way I communicated with him and he put me through the next stage where my second face-to-face panel interview with 2 other managers.

That was the first time I didn't feel much of the nervousness rushing through my body that would cause my mouth dry, lips trembling and clammy palms. The worst thing was to try really really hard to look good and smile infront of my interviewer but the more I tried to exaggerate my smiley face the more my facial muscle\lips would tremble followed by shaky words because my thoughts were all over the place in my head. Fortunately, I was all the opposite, I felt cool, calm and collected because they friggin made me wait for 15 minutes!

They asked me pretty much everything and anything e.g. How would I cope working in a male dominant environment, pressured situation and how well I can play badminton..hmmm...I confidently answered all of them as well as technical questions they prepared...it went on and on for 1 and a half hours. They started to feel very comfortable infront of me and we even joked about how the company is gonna be like when a girl suddenly appears in a male dominant company, about getting badminton coaching from me...WTH?! Anyway, everything went just as expected :-) brilliant!

2 hours later, my agency rang me and passed on the feedback Invizage had for me during the interview, they were impressed with my performance and would like to push me through to another stage but.....BUT...he declined the offer on behalf of me because they suddenly had a change of mind with the salary package they put with the role before the interview...how shitty poop! I can't believe it! I don't know why they changed their mind...seriously...so they suddenly decided that I do not have enough qualifications? not appealing enough? NOT BLONDE or BUSTY?! JEEEZz...I don't know...I'm baffled, I'm disappointed - Invizage is quite a reputable company to start with...I think they are so prestigious company, they require their employees to be up to the right standard I suppose *sigh* at least I've achieved something, it's my first time passed my Interview with flying colours...hehe..

Oh well, back to where I started...keep trying, keeping working, and keeping looking....

Dog owners 'fleeced' in poodle scam

Is it a lamb? Is it a poodle? Can you spot the difference?

Thousands of people have been 'fleeced' into buying neatly coiffured lambs they thought were poodles.

Entire flocks of lambs were shipped over from the UK and Australia to Japan by an internet company and marketed as the latest 'must have' accessory.

But the scam was only spotted after a leading Japanese actress said her 'poodle' didn't bark and refused to eat dog food.

Like hundreds of Metro.co.uk readers, we also think this has a whiff of the 'urban myth' about it - but hey, it's a good story.

Maiko Kawakami, who starred in the Japanese thriller Violent Cop, showed photographs of her pet on a television talk show only to be told it wasn't a dog - but was in fact a lamb.

The discovery prompted hundreds of women to contact the police with similar problems and the authorities believe as many as 2,000 people have been conned.

'We launched an investigation after we were made aware that a company was selling sheep as poodles,' a police spokesman told The Sun.

'Sadly, we think there is more than one company operating in this way.

'The sheep are believed to have been imported from overseas - Britain and Australia.'

Poodles are famously used by the rich and glamourous on the continent but are extremely rare in Japan, with many people having little idea what they look like.

The company, which translates as Poodles as Pets, sold the 'poodles' for £630, about half the cost of a normal poodle but is now understood to have been shut down.

Good Partnership dude!

Ballarat Open, JTUltra Graded and the recent Melbourne Central Open - Leong K and I have managed to defend our A mixed title for 3 competitions in a roll, which is quite a great achievement which I've never thought it was possible cause I've never trained to play Mixed or like playing Mixed whatsoever. With Xue (my old double partner) almost retired from the badminton scene, Mixed would be my only strong event I could play in competitions. We even tested our ability in the Open grade for the first time in the Melbourne Central which we battled through to the Quarter Finals after defeating F and V then we had the chance to play against one of Australia's seeded mixed pair Erin C and Ben W. We realised we would be facing elimination at this round but we did give them a rather interesting match that lasted more than 15mins! LOL!! We even once led the game by 5-3 for about few seconds - I know Leong would be happier if I mentioned this! LOL! Anyhow, we lost to them 21-10, 21-12. So you see, it wasn't that bad! I was quite happy that we had the opportunity to play some Australian players, we shall try again in tournaments to come :-))

Ladies Doubles with D Koh was not really a success this time, we only managed to grab Runner-up losing to J and J quite embarrassingly. Just didn't know what was wrong, D was having alil tummy discomfort and both J and J had a pretty good partnership - so I wasn't surprised that we lost miserably. I guess we will wait till our 3rd partnership and see whether it was our partnership that has affected our game last week.

Oh well, back to work I guess...It's been awhile that I haven't really concentrated at work for more than 4 hours, just keep getting distracted by other things *sigh* plus I should be studying at the same time, my first Microsoft exam is this Friday and then Party throughout the weekend!

Having a bad day?

If you are having a bad day dealing with people around you, remember this,

The world is not entirely made up of chocolate coated people with soft chocolate fillings but of bastard coated bastards full of bastard fillings - Scrubs season 4


Anthrax Thread?!

Another b*llsh*t Connex train service, I just can't believe delays have become so often now that passengers will have to get use to it. As I walked towards the office, traffic cones have completely blocked the junction and nearby traffic was assisted by 2 cops. Further ahead, I saw all Decipha staff standing impatiently outside the building...hmm...tapes surrounded the building entrance allowing only authorised officers within the parameter. First thought in mind was some homicide must have taken place, I've always wanted to see some Crime Scene Investigation!! Except that there weren't people terrified or in trauma... Then I saw the Scientific Unit and Response Unit squads, we were told they are still waiting for another special unit to arrive.

A few minutes after, I only found out that some mail sorters found themselves in a International terror biological attack situation. They found white powder in a couple of sealed envelopes and the next thing was people have been evacuated from the building except 10 of the staff whom may be contaminated by the suspicious powder which had assumed to be Anthrax.

An hour has gone by before 3 of the special unit officers dressed up as the "bubble men" and completed with the oxygen mask, 2 layers of safety suits and gloves just like you see on the telly! cool! Already a few people taking out their camera phones capturing the action (included myself) LOL!!

After a couple hours of wait, we were finally allowed to go back in the building...the authority had confirmed that the powder is not the infamous Anthrax but yet another unidentified contaminated substance. They were soon sealed and taken to the labs for further investigation.

Others with little concern about the whole incident finally came back after 3 rounds of coffee breaks! Nice one!
