Ice cream cake nomness!

So! We finally celebrated Josh's birthday! :D

It wasn't anything big and exciting, unfortunately. We just had a nice dinner and a Baskin Robbin's ice cream cake!

Unfortunately, it melted in the fridge while we were out having dinner!! I placed it in the freezer but was afraid it was going to be too hard by the time we took it out -_- stupid, I know...

    Gooey goodness! Fortunately, it still tasted great!

     Thoroughly enjoying this ice cream cake!

    Momentarily distracted by soccer on TV

Happy belated birthday Joshie! :)
I know you had a good time ;)

Certified phlebotomist!

I is a certified phlebotomist! *prances*

Together with a couple of my colleagues, we attended this 2-day venepuncture crash course over last weekend.
Yes, the weekend. From 9am to 4.30pm! Whole weekend gone T.T
Moreover, it was Joshua's birthday that Sunday!

Cute candid picture of him!


How come there are so many October babies? Mr. Seng Keng, uni mate, ex-housemate, my brother, father, uncle, and Joshua! @_@

Anyho, as of today, I've taken blood from 7 people! :D

It's hard to believe that two years ago, I'd feel queasy at the sight of blood. I suppose after assisting a cosmetic surgeon with a facelift, blood is nothing.

Speaking of facelifts, we'll be doing a couple more in two weeks' time. Yay?

We have a new staff member too who I have been training. She's very nice and almost too kind.
I'm just only worried that she won't be able to say 'no' to things.

The next weeks will be extremely busy at work as our cosmetic surgeon will be performing a number of procedures (will have to work on Saturday T.T) then Dr. Ong is back (it's always chaotic and busy when he returns), and we'll go to Perth for a week to work.

It'll be fun fun fun!!

And I return! The world rejoices!

After spending nearly a week in beautiful sunny Perth, it was almost saddening to return to the miserable weather of Melbourne. Fortunately, the weather is starting to warm up. It's actually gorgeous and warm outside with a temperature of 24 degrees. WOOTS!

I didn't manage to explore much of Perth as it was a business trip; I was pretty much just slaving away inside a building instead of enjoying the glorious weather outside. We did manage to squeeze in a quick visit to South Perth for a magnificent view of its city's skyline.

Anyho, I apologize for the lack of updates. I have been away and it's been absolute chaos at work the week prior to this. Perhaps for the first time since I started my job, I was swamped with feelings of uneasiness. I had actually dreaded to go to work at one point.

Let's just say my eyes have been opened and I can see with much clarity now to what has been happening all along. No doubt, I still enjoy my job and its challenges. I still intend to stay for a little longer, but if I wish to do so, I must tread lightly as I have learnt that being headstrong and even standing up for myself can cause a lot of trouble for others. Fortunately, I have found such good friends in some of my colleagues who will make my job so much easier and enjoyable :)

Now, enough ranting! Let me show you some pictures of things I've purchased lately!

I got this cute summery canvas bag from Dotti almost two months ago! The massive button caught my eye and captured my heart ♥

 Cute as a button! ♥

   Purchased summer wedges ;)

Couldn't resist this tartan patterned shoes, so ideal for work! ♥

I purchased this book a week ago and finished it within three days.
It's a crime thriller by Natsuo Kirino. It's such a thrilling book, I couldn't put it down!

Although I was a little disappointed with the ending, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I must admit, even though I've helped out in surgeries, I felt quite sick reading certain passages in the book.
I really should start picking up reading again.

I waste so many hours in front of a laptop; shopping online, facebook-ing, reading blogs and what not.

Now I'm obssessed with playing this Nine-letter-word game online:
You'd need to form as many words as possible from 9 given letters, which must include at least one particular letter.
Well... at least I'm exercising my brain. *shrug

PS: Thanks for the concern guys. I know my angry entry the other day caused some raised eyebrows, but I really want to get it off my chest. It's only money that I have to give up, but it's hard-earned money, of which shouldn't even come out of my savings account, just because of a mistake made by others. SIGH.
Oh well, what do you do? Live and let live I suppose.
