A One Way Voyage........

I live life not the way I want it. I live life the way I decided. Decisions never always reflect what you want. Whether it's a mistake or not, it is the way God wanted it to be. Not known for now, but there is a reason, for I have died once, yet lived again. Be it fraught with upsets, at the end of the road, for as long as I can say "I have not harmed a soul", then it withstood the waves and the journey was perfect.-Falcon116

Hiya Pips.

Well, what do you know...I've been gone for a couple of weeks and when I came back, we've got more toys in the bloggers world. Bloggers have added on the 'GADGETS' on the layout, which are so cool. Games, texting wares, etc...

I am so excited to read through them and maybe upload them here on my blog. But I can't do that just yet because life is still so hectic.

This is just to let my family (and others who are interested) know of what's been happening with my life, and to notify them that I am still alive and breathing. Although I have not logged on to the YM for a while, you're not forgotten Mum! I know you think I don't care anymore...LOL
Kidding. I know you understand. Maybe Jashkah's on-line from time to time, but that's not me. You can leave a message with him, and tell him to pass it on to me, otherwise, he'll just delete the message.

Anyway...Life's drastically changed. I have now moved office. Well, on Monday, that is. I've been given a special project by my nice, lovely, beautiful, and too trusting ex-boss who will effectively be my boss again as of Monday. I will be working once again out in the big smokes! After so much resistance from my current-almost-ex-boss, my ex-soon-to-be boss again won!!! Hak Hak Hak. If that makes sense.

I will be assisting her to do up a policy and procedures manual for a specialized area (can't say which one)in Finance for the whole of the NT. It may even involve traveling to the regional offices (according to the product manager) to train staffs. It will be a very interesting job, yet very daunting and challenging. I don't know why she's given me this much trust when I could not even give my self half of the trust she's given me over the years. But then again, she's always proven her decisions to be right, so I have given her my full trust yet again. I don't know if I can do it, but I will certainly do my best. She once asked me if she's doing the right thing...the only answer I could give is..."I don't know. It's your decision, and I trust your decision" ....So help me GOD!

It was so sad leaving Casuarina Plaza yesterday(I bet someone's happy too). No one knew I was leaving. I did not want to tell them, but if I didn't, and simply vanished without goodbyes, it's pretty much the same as signing my resignation letter and my death warrant.

When they found out late yesterday afternoon, they went into a frenzy! prepared a very late afternoon tea and gave me a send-out-good-luck plant, which does not grow here in Darwin. How ironic. Maybe if I can make this plant live even for just a couple of months, then it will signify that I can get out of this project alive and successful. On the other hand, it probably signifies IMPOSSIBILITY.

Hayley, Margaret, Maria, (and the lot)... I will miss you guys. Thank you so much for all the support you've given me while I was the team leader. Had it not been for all your help, I would have taken a lot of James's wraths!!! Joke! He's a nice boss, a good bloke. Look after him for me and Cheryl. As I've said, I'm not dead! I'll be back.

Honestly, I am embarking on a very scary endeavor. Dark and musky, vast and deep, I will be crawling or swimming in an area so far fetched from the realities and comforts of my current job description. By God, I might come out of it without a pulse or come out of it with a flag! So CherylO, please do not leave me....Oh, my boss's name is also Cheryl. She gets called Cheryl O and I get called Cheryl M....It will Be one interesting journey.

Another affair I've been busy with is the 'MARKETING STRATEGIES' for the Darwin Barrio Fiesta. The TRALA-LAS will be having a food stall during the event. We had a meeting last Saturday night, then we went shopping for the styro-plates and our uniform materials last Sunday. In spite of the frantic schedule, somehow, Cat and Mona still found time to give out a showdown of voices and butts! Mga Tralala talaga!!!

Showdown Madonna & Cindy Lauper

Guess what else I've been busy with???

I come home from work at 8:00PM almost every night (overtime), eat dinner, take a shower, then what do I do? Sew aprons! Hek Hek Hek...Lots of them! This is going to be our uniform for the Darwin Barrio Fiesta at the end of the month. This will be fun!

down, 10 more aprons to go)

My son's been to a camp for three nights and four days. When he came back home...He's a changed man!!! Whatever that means, Only I will know. But he's definitely grown a lot...Oh my.

Did a group study for our Certificate IV in Frontline Management too. Assessment for the first two units are due on Wednesday, so tomorrow, I will definitely be 'heads down-bum's up' with my assignment.

Today, I will be going to Ate Luz's house to get some stuffs ready for the Barrio Fiesta...And oh...Bugger! I am late...I have to cook something to take there.

K Catcha dunno when....

...I don't shower...I don't brush my teeth...I don't eat...I don't sleep...That's how I do it...LOL


This is what happens when you are too bored with life. You find a problem. When it becomes too much of a problem, start looking for another problem....
