~ 3 Days of Bliss ~

I know that it has been awhile since I got back from my Langkawi trip... Sometimes it just feels like yesterday that I boarded the plane and headed out for the much longed for and anticipated holiday.
Anyways, since I seem to have a bit of free time this week, I decided to post up some of the pics I took during that 3 days of absolute bliss (minus the incident where I found a bug in the bed!)

The hotel where I stayed in had a, thankfully, really lovely beach. This was taken when I was lying in the sunshine without my sunscreen and subsequently burnt my legs.
Absolute Paradise!

Ahhh... the amazing and simple pleasures of having a
Black Russian on the beach with the wind in your hair.

A Saturday Evening...

Hey loyal readers... It's a Saturday evening... (yay, its the weekend!) sorry for the influx of posts... these were written and saved as drafts and I have finally got the time and the mood to upload them and tweak them where it is necessary.

For those of you who are wondering how I am, I am good.
Things are going well for me.
I am getting better in the art of LLB-ing and work has been alright.
I haven't lost any weight though I have started gymming... but I dont really care - OK I am lying... hehehe... but anyways, I feel much livelier and healthier since I started gymming though the haze is just pulling me down and is super nasty! *bleh

Well, as I said things are going well for me at the moment...
Been catching up with my reading, DVDs and sleeping (though its quite troubled sleep most often) and have had the time to start dreaming about my 'One Days' again and positive steps are being taken even as I type to make these 'One Days' a reality.
I am so looking forward to the holidays as I have some dust animals (they came back) to catch and tons of things to arrange. Any helpers???

Till my next post...
I bid thee adieu.
Take care and God bless & Angels watch over you always.

Gymming Jo!!!

I used to say that I would NEVER join a gym…
well I guess I should eat my words…
because I joined a gym!!!


Let me explain. A guy came up to me and my colleague Deb and asked if we wanted to buy this promo gym membership for RM25. we could use the facilities of Fitness First for a month and had some other freebies thrown in. I don’t know why I bought the one month membership for Sun and I.

Perhaps I decided that maybe it was high time I did something about said escalating weight, perhaps I felt guilty for eating a chocolate Cornetto drumstick or maybe I just felt the urge to spend some money… or maybe it was a moment of temporary insanity...
so anyways, I kept this membership for awhile though I finally used it.

And... honestly, it was interesting to go to the gym and join the classes with other gym veterans. - FYI: Once upon a time I did join a gym (if you can call it that) in Uptown called ‘Body Beautiful’ but I didn’t go much and then eventually one day, it closed down - I nearly tripped and fell several times (no surprise there!) and was lost during some of their routines and I KNOW I looked silly doing some of the moves as my unflexible bulk tried twisting and turning in some kind of strange jumping pretzel = STRESS!!!

I honestly had fun doing Body Combat and Body Balancing and though my body ached for awhile, I felt great! Its strange but I never thought I would go to a gym much less buy one of those lycra type pants… but I did.

I bought a pair of lycra pants
and I went to gym on a Sunday afternoon
or almost 3 hours of working out!

What is wrong with me???

My parents are supportive of this endeavor though of course they are as I bet they don’t want to see their only daughter deteriorate into a super fat slob!!!

So there you have it.
I am now a gym person.
(or will be for about a months time)

~ Many thanks to Annie and BryBry for the support and
making my time there less painful embarrassing and more fun.

* I am even considering joining it full time.
Though there are a lot of * terms and conditions attached to this sentence.
*grin grin*

Jo's 6 TIPS for the office!

Jo's 6 TIPS for the office.

1.) If you are the giggly sort (which I am), NEVER open jokes and read them whilst chewing on your fried rice. It is potentially dangerous to you and monitor. *NOTE: Have wet wipes always on hand for any minor accidents such as bits of rice spewing on your monitor or keyboard.

2.) I have found that if you don’t want to talk to people or be forced to work during your precious one hour of lunch, the only SAFE place is the toilet which will now be your sanctuary! Be prepared with extra toilet paper, food in bag, water in a Tupperware, reading materials, your MP3 player and of course an air freshener. *In case someone knocks on the door of your temporary sanctuary; speak in a raspy voice and tell them you are not feeling well but will be okay soon and continue reading your book and eating your packed lunch.

3.) If you find that someone has nicked your MILO from the fridge, remember to label your drinks the next time and insert the said drink in a plastic bag with your name on it. Then tie the plastic bag to a piece of string and tie the other end to your finger. You will now know which little/big arse is stealing said MILO the next bloody time. *NOTE: If the thread gets lost or falls off and the MILO is gone, wait till everyone leaves and check their bins to see who the little/big arse is.

4.) If your boss tells you one thing and someone else tells you something else, don’t complain or moan about it as it looks as if you are incompetent in your job, so instead vent it out on your blog and scream into your hanky/towel in the toilet which has now become your private sanctuary. *NOTE: Pick a thick hanky, preferably one which is fluffy and soft and scented (if possible) so that you don't damage your lips or skin whilst venting into the hanky/towel.

5.) If you want to read other peoples blogs during your precious lunch hour and if you happen to stumble upon and entry which has you as subject matter, think carefully if you should read it or wait to go home and then read it in the confines of your other sanctuary (which is nicer, cleaner, more comfy and etc.). If curiosity gets the better of you and you can’t resist, read it and prepare tissues in hand for any unexpected waterworks. *SPONGY: Thanks for the entry which was written some months ago... the tissues came in handy.

6.) If in any given case of unexpected waterworks starts occurring outside of any appointed sanctuary, fake a cold and start coughing and wheezing violently and run for the nearest sanctuary with your head down whilst continuing the violent coughing and wheezing. If the waterworks don’t cease… pinch yourself really hard so you have something else to think about other than the hurt, pain and etc. *For those requiring violent coughing and wheezing lessons, do drop me an email or msg. If you are lucky, you might even be lucky to get sent home by the boss in case you infect the others in the office with your strange disease!

At the Office Loo

Some things I hate when I go to the loo at office is
the absence of toilet paper...
and when there is a roll of nice toilet paper,
it is the cheap kind that sticks to your bum
*sigh sigh sigh*
and (drumroll please)
the worst thing I hate is
when you are sitting on the throne doing whatever it is you are doing
and someone turns off the light.
GAH!!! Pitch black! Darkness!
and (double drumroll please)
the absolutely worst shittiest thing would be if...
you were on the throne
and they turned off the lights
and you have cheap tissue stuck on your bum!!!
GAH!!! Pitch black! Darkness!
and Tissues on your BUM!!!
~ fumbles and grumbles in the dark ~
*sigh sigh sigh*
I hate when this happens in the office loo...
or any loo for that matter... Bummer!

Each and everyday seems like a routine at times:
~ Every morning there is the wake up call from Sunshine (good stuff).

~The walk to get the transport to work – sometimes its good when I get to see my neighbors, when there is nice weather and I don’t need to rush to work
~The ride to work – sometimes its good when there I no traffic and the cabbie man doesn’t swindle me by charging me super exorbitant prices for my ride
~The media monitoring in office (1/4 good stuff, ¾ bad) – I hate the parts where I read about all the sadness in the world and the horrible crimes and sufferings. It starts your day just really wrong!!! Though on the brighter side of things, the comics and silly stories do put a temporary smile on your face.
~The sometimes surprise lunches and online lunches with Sunshine (very good stuff) – a breath of fresh air on an otherwise draggy day.
~The 5 minutes before work ends (good stuff) ‘cos you know that you will be going home soon.
~The ride home from work with Sunshine (good stuff) – ‘cos you are going HOME!!!

So sometimes there are variations here and there but mostly same old stuff…
And as I type this post during my lunch, I somehow wish that Sunshine was online or something because my heart is hurting for some sad reason… and I just feel like cutting it out…
Oh well… sorry so morbid…
I am not all that sad… only 4 hours and 35 mins before I got HOME!
