It's been a long time since I've last posted, partly because I was lazy, and the other part, was busy translating. Yes, I have been translating a "Nota Panduan" on how to fill in tax forms from Malay to English. It's amazing, the way they write the guide notes. At some points, I thought I have come to a dead end. It's not easy to translate when you don't even understand what they are talking about in the first place. *Sigh* Even then, I still think doing the translation was good in a way. After leaving college, I have not practiced my Malay language much, and was quite rusty, and by doing the translations, I have somehow re-acquainted myself with the Malay language.

I have just realized exactly how money faced I am after starting work. I seem to be worrying about money issue quite often lately, and even had a nightmare on foreign exchange about a week ago. Definitely wasn't nice. Not only that, because I had lost my MC and medical receipt, I also had nightmare on that matter on the same night. Needless to say, I felt really tired the next day. Being an adult isn't nice at all, eh?

Thank god for my bosses, I'll be having the whole of next week off, so I'll be in Singapore. This means that I will need someone to babysit my fishes for me. On Thursday night, I had to transport my "sea of fishes" to my cousin's house. It was definitely a big mission! The car ride to my cousin's house was the longest one I ever had (from SS1 to Subang Jaya). I didn't care if the water spilled out a bit. I was afraid that the fishes might be accidentally thrown out of their bowls. Fortunately, the mission was a success. I'm missing them now. Haih.

Now that I have started working, holidays seem to be so much more precious. I'm definitely going to enjoy myself to the max in Singapore. I'll be leaving tomorrow, so see you guys on the 7th of November! Oh, and HAPPY DEEPAVALI & SELAMAT HARI RAYA!

yslim: I didn't mean that it was literally long. It was because I was transporting the fishes and was really stressed, so it SEEMS as if it was the longest ride to subang, compare to other times.
