I chose to put 'no title' as the title for this post as there are no words to describe how I feel. I received the M.U.G award at work today. Very unexpected. Definitely assured and comforted. Award giving ceremony was casual, with only a few partners and our DM. Even then, of all the awards I've received in my life so far (including the vice chancellor's list award which I received twice in front of hundreds of people for achieving top 1% in the whole mechanical engineering course in curtin), never have I ever felt so overwhelmed........ inside.
Last Saturday (22.05.10), I offered to volunteer in a charity event for the special kids @ PDK. When Hui told me about it, I joined without hesitance as the contribution needed was to HAVE FUN!... Basically, I just went and have a great time with the kids. The rain made us change our plans last minute but it sure didn't stop us from having fun, in fact, it made it BETTER. It's been ages since I've played with water. Super awesome day~! My job was actually to take care of the kids and company them to play but I ended up being one of them too that morning. Again, let the pictures do the talking :) Thanks to Michael for the wonderful pics .
Bouncers, water pools, water guns, bubbles, splashes, running, climbing, sliding, laughters, giggles, soap covered faces & FUN FUN FUN~!
With the coordinators of PDK
Made new friends too ^^ (who also volunteered). I thank God for big hearted youth in the Miri community :)
My rest day project - #117 Starbucks Partner CnC Board. Our existing board is kinda worn out and I offered to make one for our store. Bascially I'm using same idea with the one I made for SP2. Coffee pegs and all. Ryan was so sweet and thoughtful to offer to help. He came straight after work to my place to work on our project :)
Carefully sticking the double sided tape and stick the boards together.
Sticking the pegs :)
Ryan came out with this title. I think it's pretty cool and creative!
Finished @ store with the stickers
Process of erecting the board ^^
And the board is up~! Got the closing partners to take pictures with it. Super cute kan? Hehehe...
I thank God for the inspiration. Looking forward for more. Neways, share with you all a quote that inspires me :)
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Seriously down with migraine.... Urgh~! It got pretty bad last night and I had to leave early from work. After 7 months in Sbux, this is my first MC. However, I am thankful for it, as without it, I wouldn't have known how considerate my partners (Joyce, Esther and Jeremy) are, who offered to help me finish my closing tasks. It made me feel so warm.
However, my day got better with Mummy's home made burgers. I don't have much appetite but it still taste pretty damn good :) I only took pictures when most of it is done already, so missed out the meat making process part. :p K nuff said, let the picture do the rest of the talking... :)
Mummy slicing the bread
Butter spreaded...... mmmm............
Pan fried a little...... ^^
The fillings :)
Everything put together
and whoalah~! yum yum yum
Grandma: you want some? ^^
*chomp! chomp! chomp!*
After only 15 minutes :p
Then after just sat in the living room and relax. I like sitting next to grandma cuz I can hold her hand like this. And once in a while she'll squeeze my hand. Her legs are weak but damn, her grab is so strong that sometimes I can almost hear my knuckles :p
I'm not a taiwanese, but I truly love this song. Lyrics so beautifully written :) Then with the heart-touching video, Jolin's sweet voice, played along with the handwritten lyrics... all these fused together makes the MV oh so............ breathtaking~~~~..... think my heart beat just stopped a few times there :p
Marlene found some Miri-made recycled papers in Jazz Fes and it's so sweet of her to share what she bought with me ^^ and she bought a card for me too! I really have a thing for recycled papers and I've got plenty of ideas for them too. If only I got more rest days to experiment them! haha. Check out the cut out pattern, the texture and the colors..... love every bit of them~!.... but most of all, I love the encouragement and warmth i feel wrapped inside this card. Thank you Marlene, for always being such an angel :D
