woof woof...

Phew. Just got back from University Putra Malaysia in Serdang. Was there from 8am till about 2pm. They had their annual Dogathon whereby this year's theme was Pirates: All Paws on Deck! It was their 10th Anniversary as well. I've always wanted to check out a dog show and have missed a few held in 1Utama. This time I decided to head along with my mates Devan and Raj who brought along their pooches. I don't really have any pics of em though. Hopefully will be able to upload some later in the week.

It was a good outing. Got to check out all sorta breeds like Golden Retrievers, German Shepherds, Saint Bernards and even Siberian Huskies and Pit Bull Terriers. But the best of all was my favourite, Jack Russell Terriers. They are the ones used in the movie The Mask as well as the comedy serial Frasier. They are so cute, playful and active. Suits my character. Hehe. Well at least the playful part. =P

Sigh. Wish I could have a dog again. Owner of the house says no way. Guess I'll only be able to get one once I move out and live on my own. God only knows when that will happen. Oh well, at least I got mates who have lovely doggies. Get to play with em' every now and then. Come to think of it, one of them is gonna turn 2 soon. Hopefully I'll be around then to celebrate with the gang.

Alrighty. I better be off. Really tired and in need of a good shower. Take care folks!

vacation time!

Ahhh after some time I'm soon to be off again for a long vacation. This time I'm heading to India with my dad. Will be concentrating on the North. Will be following a tour organised by a family friend. Think its gonna be about 16 of us out of which we personally know 6 of em'. Hope the group will be good. Not some typical old bags. Hehe. The tour will visit about 3 hillstations, the city of Delhi, Agra for the Taj Mahal and Jaipur for all the majestic castles. Am praying it won't be raining since its the tail end of the of monsoon season in India. Also am praying I won't get any tummy problems as I've been advised by many to be careful over there. Gotta pay attention to what I drink and eat.

Hmmm its gonna be about 1 week plus before I'm off. Getting all excited di. Can't wait. Hope this week goes by quick! =)

slap in the face...

How would you react if you got a slap in the face from a person whom you thought was close to you? When I say slap I do not mean literally as in the physical action but more of being backstabbed in terms of wordplay or gossips and what not. I'm sure you get what I mean. This has not happened to me before until recently. I mean I have gotten flack from people I don't care much about but from a friend. It was the first time for me. From then I started re evaluating my perception on what a friend really is or more of whom I should regard as a friend.

How would one mix friend and work? How about friend and boss? Its interesting really to see from a 3rd party's point of view of the whole thing. I spoke to about 4 ppl on this and surprisingly they don't blame me for how I feel and have the same thoughts. Hmmm. Now how would one move on from such an incident? Do you brush it off and thread lightly in the future? Do you take it with a pinch of salt and just forget about it? I was always told not to be close with my collegues as issues will always arise due to the difference in position. I was told to not mix with them too much. Sadly that isn't my nature. In my view I am able to separate work and outside and hence I try to build relationships with my colleagues. Sadly I'm starting to realise that just because I can do it doesn't mean others can. And when a relationship does turn sour, things get complicated. I mean I don't start bullying them at work or something but the whole relationship changes. It becomes more of a colleague than a friend. More of an Employee ID than a name. Sigh. Its tough.

Oh well I think I'll stop rambling on this topic. Its rather sensitive and I might say something to offend the wrong people. Anyhoo I just wanted to let it out. Even if it was just a lil' bit. There is only so much a person can hold inside right. Anyways you take care folks while I pack up to head home. Gd' nite!
