    I wanted to go to the tropical fish expo so much that i asked Chew to go with me but as usual, an answer was ‘NO’. I really think that i can learn more knowledge on this field if i go with him as he will be able to answer all the questions that i may raise. It is ok as i already get used to all the ‘NO’ from him.
 
    Rene and i reached there just right before 1pm and i was so delighted that the expo was well organised, not like the book fair i went the day before where everything was so unorganised and the choice also not that many. As usual, we went to visit booth by booth but there were nothing much exciting there as i have seen most of the items before when i went to aquarium with Chew. Rene was interested at the UV filter and i found the price was quite reasonable. It was a bit surprised to me to meet the lady at Oceanic Aquarium @ Puchong there where she was trying to distribute some leaflets. It is no surprise to me to see 88marine and The Pet Family to have a booth there. Hikari was so generous to distribute so many samples there and i also get the sample of Hai Feng.
 
    The expo was quite interesting and we ended up spending two hours there. I really like some of the fish there but most of them were not for sale and i found myself spending time taking pictures of all the cute fish. I would say that my favourite is still gold fish and feel free to find out more from the photo album!

    I hate to bring back office work and work on Saturday but i have no choice. I am always reluctant to do so as weekends is the time for us to do whatever we do not get to do on our busy working schedules. I like to do everything on a relax way and there is no point to rush into anything after a hectic five-day working week.
 
    There are so many things remained undone and inititally i wish i could have settled most of the outstanding items on hand while my boss is away for vacation. The Corporate Guarantee Register is not finalised yet, Minutes of Meetings not drafted yet, Insurance Renewal for Year 2007 is half way done, Operation Manual on Trust Insurance not yet follow up with relevant parties and the lists seem to continue…
 
    I am so lazy now and do not feel like doing anything except i have cleaned my 2 fish tanks and relocate the fish tank in my room to living room. I hope that my 5 little gold fish can settle down well in the ‘new environment’. Probably later i should post some pictures of my little pet so that my friends can get to know them and meet them as well.
 
    I am glad that i already get used to spending my weekends without my ex. Last time we used to spend the whole weekend together and i am glad that i still survive my weekends without him. Initially it was a bit bitter for me to clean the fish tanks and do some gardening without him as i really enjoy doing all these with him. However, life moves on… Probably he already found his new love who also share the same hobbies with him, more caring and who is more compatible than me, who knows?    
 
    Well, i should start my office work now otherwise i will need to burn my midnight oil later… Tomorrow is going to be a busy day as my granpa, grandma and aunties are coming over to my place to celebrate my mum’s belated birthday. Thanks to my mummy for raising me and being such a nice mum and i am so proud to be the daughter of my parents!!

    I was transferred by my boss to another company to handle treasury matters about a month ago. It is something that i like not because of daily dealing with $$ but the job challenge as well as the job satisfaction. The job can be very stress but i am willing to take up the challenge.   

    The transfer can be considered as a promotion but i get neither promotion nor adjustment on my remuneration. My boss is kind enough to always find out from me whether i have settled down in the new environment and whether i am learnng new things. I always assure him that i am fine in the new environment because i don’t want him to worry about me. Afterall, it is my choice to accept the transfer and move on with new things in my life.

    I am a bit regret after what happened today. I feel extremely stressed today when i am assigned with Mission Impossible as well as tight deadline. There are so many things to do and remained unsettled though i have tried my best. I don’t know how long i can survive here but i will just try. I am not someone who can easily give up on something and i will continue to be tough. Faye is right, we need to be tough otherwise people can see through us easily and they will bully us. The job satisfaction will continue to drive me to success…
