Trueblue's bad luck

Oh My God!! I couldn’t believe it. It happened for the second time!!!! I FELL today. Yes, again!!! This time it was at KLCC. I was walking while sms-ing when suddenly *gedebush*, I fell. It was so sudden; I didn’t even realize I was already on the floor. My first thought was “What the hell?? Not again???!!!”. I was kind of stunned for a few seconds and felt so angry with myself for being so clumsy. I had to take a moment to compose myself and once ready I took a deep breath and stood back up again. A security guard was running towards me and asked if I was ok. I just smiled and told him I was fine and quickly walked off. I didn’t dare to look around and prayed hard that no one I knew saw the embarrassing scene. Urrghhh!!! I am such an idiot. It must be those damn shoes. Evil..evil shoes. I shall chuck them away..To make matters worst, now my left arm hurts. That’s it…I am an idiot. *Trueblue bangs her head on the wall*

While we’re on this topic of bad luck, let me just share with you another bad luck incident that happened this morning. Since I live in an apartment; I have to take the lift to go down to the parking lot. There usually isn't any unusual events in the morning but today something different happened. As I entered the lift I immediately smelt something strange and disgusting. Someone must have farted just before he/she went out the door lift. I guess the ‘gas’ stayed behind when the doors closed. Of course it was very ‘fortunate’ of me to be the next one to enter. I had to hold my breath because the smell was so UNBEARABLE. I tell you people, it was the longest 10 seconds of my life!!! I quickly ran out the moment the door lift opened and said to myself: Must-have-fresh-air…!! That was nasty…I nearly choked to death :)

Don’t you just hate it when these things happen? It totally spoiled my mood in the morning.

The only good moment of the day was when a colleague gave me some chocolates she bought from her trip to USA. I know I can always count on chocolates as a source of comfort.

Hope tomorrow will be a better day. Wish me luck! :)

Ola Everybody!!

Gosh…It's been ages since I last went into this blog. 3 weeks seems like 3 months!! :)

The 2 weeks course was tiring. We had classes in the weekends and even on a public holiday (Deepavali). There were days when we had classes and group discussions at night. We had tests too!! Now that was a tough one....The last time I did any tests was during University days so having to do it at the end of each module was stressful!!! I realised too that at this age, I don't think I can ever go back to school again (doing Masters, MBA, etc). It's such a challenge having to balance work, studies and family. Anyway, even though the course has ended, we’re not out of the woods yet because we have to submit a project paper in the next 7 weeks. Argghhhhh!!!

I was back at work on Tuesday and for some strange reason, I felt clueless. After being away from the office for so long, I kind of have forgotten what I was supposed to do. Panic started to creep in as a colleague briefed me on the long list of things to do. Die la like this…I have to get back on the saddle again and keep myself busy. *Groan*

Oh least there will be one thing that will keep me sane and definitely something that I will look forward to: My 2 weeks leave at the end of the year. Yippppeeeee!!!!

It's good to be back. I miss you guys!!!

P/S: My left wrist still hurts :(

Trueblue + training + owwwwwwwwwww....

Just got back from a 3-day course at one of the hotels here in KL. Good food? Yes. Good training? Yes...but whether or not we apply the knowledge back at work is another story. Still too early to tell if there's going to be any changes in the office.

Anyway, one interesting (or is it funny?) story to tell you is that I fell on the third day of the training. No joke, I actually fell during lunch break. We were walking towards the surau (prayer room) and as I was admiring the paintings on the wall, I suddenly slipped and *gedebush*, fell to the floor. Not really sure how it happened. I think the floor was quite slippery (probably too much waxing or something) and I lost the grip of my heels. The next thing I knew, my friends were asking me "Gosh, Trueblue, are you ok?". I was so embarrassed but of course I had to play it cool. They must have thought I was some kind of idiot. Thank God I didn't fall on my face because I quickly used my left hand to prevent myself from falling further. The consequence to that is now my left wrist hurts like crazy. I probably should get it checked but somehow I'm hoping the pain would go away on its own...soooonnn...pleaseeeeeee.....

Tomorrow I am gonna be away from office again..for another course and this time it will be for 2 weeks!!! I am having mixed feelings about it actually. Its great to be away from office but am not that excited to be leaving the family (its a residential programme). There will also be classes in the weekends! Not sure if I'll be able to blog much too. Will see how it goes.

It feels uncomfortable to type now because of this pain on my wrist. I guess I better sign off and get some rest. Hope you guys have a great weekend ahead. Think of me from time to time as I'll be 'locked up' somewhere for the next 2 weeks :(
