Haircut and Portfolio Good Progress

[Thursday, 22 April, 2010]

My mum started playing cards, which distracted me. I slept after 4am again, knowing I had to start sleeping early before my graduation ceremony.

I gave my hairdresser a call and she told me to call her back at 2pm. Then, she made me wait for another hour. I got the same short haircut.

I spent the entire afternoon and evening working on my portfolio, including of insertion of keywords and description to the HTML Meta tags. It was a very tedious job. I almost finished the portfolio, except that I was too tired and bored to add in descriptions for all the print-screens.


Command and Conquer – No kick

[Tuesday, 20 April, 2010]

I had a hard time trying to doze off in Tuesday morning.

I continued with my portfolio for a while in the afternoon before I started playing Command and Conquer myself, winning in the three versus five game, first time using USA. I had another game with my elder brother and we defended against the five teams well.

I was hardworking at night.


My Carelessness with my Personal Website

[Monday, 19 April, 2010]

Monday was a plain and boring day. I got so bored of working with my portfolio until early morning that I started playing game in the afternoon.

Progress of my portfolio was more visible at night but I got very bored of working on it and also on my daily blog and marketing work.

As I was doing Search Engine Optimisation for my personal website, I realised the footer of my blog was not amended since years ago. I was greatly disappointed with myself for being so careless. Anyway, the Blog’s title on each individual’s post entry page was improved and it would show the entry’s title instead of just my website’s name.


Hum Jin Peng

[Sunday, 18 April, 2010]

I had a taste of fouled milk in the early morning. The strong chocolate smell of the Cocokruch covered the soul smell and I managed to discover it after finishing one-third of the bowl. I turned to cut fruits in the refrigerator instead. Finally I got to sleep before 6am.

My mum woke me up after 1pm to have lunch at Maxwell Market with my brother and his girlfriend. The fish soup was not as nice as the one I always took at Clementi’s “dead end”. The couple went to queue up for the famous “hum jin peng” and the lady selling tissue came over and asked if anyone was sitting beside me. I was stunned when she took the seat right beside me when there were so many empty seats in the same table and that there were empty tables around as well. She started counting her money like as if I was her bodyguard for more than five minutes. Her speed was fast and thus I could see how much profitable the tissue-touting business was. Next, we went to join my brother in the long queue and I got to get a hands-on on the frying of the “hum jin peng”.

After reaching home, I started helping Xiao Mei with her website and there were some amendments intervally. I continued with my portfolio but dozed off. I managed to download some of the missing fonts but was still puzzled over why where was the entire missing folder.

I went to the toilet a few times and the waste was green in colour but it was not really a diarrhoea.


Portfolio and Gaming

[Saturday, 17 April, 2010]

I worked on my portfolio until 6am. It was another boring working day upon waking up.

In the late afternoon, I had a game of Command and Conquer and I finally got to beat the computers in a 3 versus 5 game.

I had curry with bread for my dinner. My mum made corn plus mushroom Campbell soup. I still preferred mushroom soup.

The Taiwanese “love” show on channel 8 distracted me from working on my portfolio.


Meeting up with Dear Sister Hoay Min

[Thursday, 15 April, 2010]

I continued with the struggle with my portfolio, sleeping only after 4am. I woke up near 9am before my alarm clock sounded. I checked my phone and realised my dear “sister” Hoay Min had cancelled the lunch appointment with me. I was sleepy and tried to get back to my sleep but the thought about my portfolio kept me alive suddenly. I started working on my laptop on the mattress but soon, my brother invited me to join him and his girlfriend at the MacDonald’s.

I packed up my laptop and took it along. After having the unusual breakfast where some memories caught me, I took a corner seat to start doing my work alone. I realised the Wireless@SG at all MacDonald’s restaurants did not allow posting comment in Facebook. The current online visitor counter on my website, which used Ajax was not spared. I did not stay there for long as the crowds started to flood the place with noise. It was the busiest hour for the restaurant in the working district. I packed up and left without feeling very accomplished.

I continued with my portfolio at home until the mid afternoon, I went to Vivocity to meet Hoay Min. After passing by the Starbucks nearer to the cinema a few times, I finally found a seat by the glass at the corner. It was not the best seat for I could not get to see a cute girl who was using her laptop.

Hoay Min was late for quite long but I was glad enough to meet her after so long ever since I ORDed. We had long chat and she was one of the best listeners ever, able to withstand me talk out of the topics every now and then. She was the first and only person whom I told clearly about what I had been doing recently, including my Facebook marketing plans. I was glad that I could finally pour out such that at least a person on this Earth would not accuse me of enjoying myself all these while.

We left after 7pm since she had another appointment with her friends at the Coffee Bean. I went home to continue with my portfolio.


Filing of Income Tax

[Wednesday, 14 April, 2010]

After consolidating all the remittance advices from ITE for the previous year, adding up the fund that I had accumulated from them, I tried to file my income tax with the details and realised the site was on maintenance and the weird was that it was on daily basis. I joined my elder brother in his ghost show for an episode before dozing off.

I finally got to file my income tax in the afternoon after waking up. I was quite disappointed for the increased amount of studies relief would only start next year and thus, I could only exempt $3500 from my total income for my previous year’s course fee.

It was much of a less efficient day again, which I started working on my portfolio.
