... Monday

I don't hate Monday... well, okay, maybe sometimes I do hate Monday but not every Mondays I hate. I know 70% people out there dislike Monday. For me, Monday is unfortunately just the day after the Sunday. So what happen, if Tuesday or any other day than Monday is the day after Sunday, would you hate that day too?

Anyway, today, somehow, I feel lazy! Yup! Lazy but I don't hate Monday!

I don't know why I feel like such. I don't have enough weekend? Nah, I did have enough weekend by enjoying myself.

It's Energy Day today and for the first time ever, the petrol station near my area is quiet. No just plain quiet but not a single car I saw in the petrol station this morning while I passed by. LOL! Guess the Bruneians really being cautious about the fuel price today. Good for us!! Yea!

It's just coming to lunchtime and I still have few more hours to go before I can call it a day!

Have a nice day everyone!


Can I be faithful?

Believe it or not, this is a question asked by a friend who I haven't meet in a really really long time via Facebook.

I have to say, Facebook is really an amazing web thing. I mean, you can reconnect with all those friends that you haven't meet for ages and meet new friends. Few weeks back, I reconnect with a childhood friends of mine and I haven't meet or talk to that person since I was 8 years old!!

So, we are keeping touch with each other and updating each other with our currents news when things started to get personal.. personal stuffs and he asked why I'm not married yet. Haha! As if he is married already! LOL!

Anyway, we got to talk and talk and he asked me, "Can I ever be faithfu to just 1 man?"

OK! Just to get things straight here.. I'm not a flirt nor do I flirt around. I like to admire God's creations may it be in nature and in person.

When I was in relationships, true, I couldn't help but to still look at the georgeous hunks! Haha! I mean, who wouldn't, right?

Imagine you are walking with your boyfriend/girlfriend and a gorgeous man/lady walkes by, don't tell me you don't look and stare??! Haha! My philisophy, you can look but you can't touch. There is no harm in looking but touching, would be another different matter...

Anyway, let's just say that most of my relationships don't work out because most men couldn't 'handle' me! LOL!!! Which is what my colleague and my boss told me. And I haven't meet the right man for me to look at and trust.
So my dear friend, does that answer your question? ;)


Switch Off and Set (SOS)

In conjunction with the Energy Day on 24th May, Brunei's citizens are urge to participate in SOS campaign. The Switch Off and Set (SOS) campaign would start from 9am till 9pm.

The SOS would emphsis on switching off the unnecessary lights and other electrical appliances, to switch off the refrigerator and water heater and to switch off the air conditioning or to set the temperature 1 degree celcius higher.

As for me, I would be at work on that day and as everyday, I switch off all the electrical appliances, the air conditions and water heater at my room as no one enters my room when I'm not around.

I could switch off some unnecessary lights at work and setting the air conditioning temperature a degree celcius higher but to switch it off totally would be unthinkable due to the drugs we keep.

At the end of this campaign, the total energy saved for the period would be announced in the local radios.. cool eh! I hope Brunei's citizen would participate and it would be an achievement to know that we somehow tried to save our energy.

On the same day, the fuel prices would be sold without the government subsidy. If any of you out there don't know this yet, fuel in Brunei is subsidzed by the government.

Fuel Grade - Without Subsidy (24th May) - With Subsidy
Premium 97 - $0.98/litre - $0.53/litre
Super 92 - $0.92/litre - $0.519/litre
Regular 85 - $0.86/litre - $0.36/litre
Diesel - $0.91/litre - $0.31/litre

Of course, the Brunei's citizens would be unhappy due to this change but it is mainly done to create awareness to conserve our energy resources and why not we do it in small steps? Besides it would be only for a day. So, if you don't want to spend unnecessary expenses to pay for the fuel for that day, buy fuel a day earlier... I bet the fuel stations would be choas during the weekend.

WHAT? That's it??!

I know the series are coming to the end of the season and I had been expecting it especially for Mercy tv series.

My assumption was that the season would end at episode 20 but when there are episodes 21 and 22, so I folishly thought that it would end with the rest of the other series - at episode 24!

But no! I just found out yesterday that... that's it! The episode 22 is the last episode of the season 1!

Are they (the producers, directors and writers... basically the whole tv show!) kidding me? I was at the edge of my seats for the last couple of days, anticipating the next episode!

In episode 22, so many unanswered questions that need to be answered and me being me, of course getting impatient. Briggs got engaged with the ex-gf after he kissed Chloe; Mike somohow got into trouble when he tried to help a lady; Chris went to Afghanistan and the plane got hijacked and Veroica as always, still couldn't make up her mind!

But then I guess despite my impatient nature, I gotta wait till September... if they are coming up with the second season....

Movies and Series Marathon

... it's my way of paying back myself from working so hard for the last few weeks.
After my midnight duty and with my grandma warded, I had less time for myself and when I came back to work.... woissee I was swamped with all the paper works and updating drug usages.
Thankfully, now it's a bit okay. I managed to take a breather; managed to settle most of my work and I pampered myself with watching all those movies and series that I had left behind previously.

The Amazing Race 16 is coming to the end at last in which the brothers, Dan and Jordan won the $1M! Pufff! Lucky guys! I was hoping for the cowboy brothers, Jet and Cord to win but... I guess it's not their luck. But I gotta salute them for being the coolest team in this whole race (or in the whole amazing race seasons). They never shout at each other (apart from words of encouragements) and as they sais, they are the bestest of friends and bestest of brothers! You guys rock!!! Brent and Caite came in 3rd, which is not bad for Caite I guess. At least she proved herself not to be dumb (well, apart from the part she left all their bags and money behind!!)... haha! Gosh! That's harsh!

American Idol; Aaron Kelly got eliminated last week, which is a shame! I kindda like him. So now with Crystal, Big Mike, Casey and Lee, well... I wouldn't be suprised if either Crystal or Lee wins the American Idol this year. So far, both of them never got to the bottom 3 or 2. Big Mike? Yoy! As Randy says, I'm a fan, man! And I am still Big Mike's fan.... and Didi Benami's, no matter what!

The series - Bones, CSI, CSI New York, CSI Miami, Grey's Anatomy, Mercy, NCIS LA - all almost coming to the end of the season. But I still have a long way to go to finish all the series. I got left behind and at the moment I got around 4 episodes from each series that I haven't manage to watch yet!

Movies; ahhh... this is the easiest part. Somehow I managed to watch the movies faster rather than the series. The latest movies I watched would be the:

Iron Man 2

This is one of the movies I'm waiting for. And I guess it's true that the sequeal can never beat the first movie. But with Robert Downey Jr., I can endure anything... LOL!!

Ip Man 2

But this is 1 movie I have to say that just get better and better. If you love watching the first 1, you gotta watch this one. As my friend said, "it's hard to keep your emotion intact while watching this one."

The Back Up Plan

The first movie I watch from this hunky Aussie...
This movie kindda funny, in a way.
We always assume that we get to know a person, fall in love, get married and start a family but in this movie, what happen if it's the other way round?

The Bounty Hunter

Okay! Nothing can make me say anything... i mean ANYTHING bad about Gerry! He's my man... if you know what I mean! So... Gerry + Jennifer Aniston = BOOM!!!
Is it true they are dating?? or merely being buddies?? *jelousy mode*

Valentine's Day

Tell me a movie - just 1 - where you can get all the A-list stars in 1 movie??
The answer is above! Every hot, A-list stars are in there...
If this is not a great romantic movie by your standard, I don't know what movie is...
