tuesday tiredness...

so yeah it is tuesday.  no boss calling.  not even email.  don't know whether it is weird or a relieve... but i just take it all in.  didn't do much really today.  but at the end of the day i was kinda tired and can't wait to actually leave the office and just lay on my bed.  actually i did just that.  but then i went out with my lappie and jumped on a bus to go the mall.  now i'm here at starbucks.  it has been a while since i did this. sitting here with my lappie in starbucks... which reminds me... i need to get coffee..

not sure how long i'm going to be here.... probably until i'm hungry kot.... 

anyways...

sun-lazy-day...

alright.... sunday.  really sunny.  woke up around 10.30 in the morning... sleeping quite well after the bed was fixed.  showered.  boiled water.  brewed coffee.  

bought some food for lunch.  didn't want to go anywhere far so went to the nearby kopitiam.  got myself a big wantan mee... that was kinda enough for lunch surprisingly.  
and it was nice. :D
so decided to watch some movies.  continued my harry potter and the half blood prince... after finished that i continued with a 2006 release movie called the holiday.  yes it is a chick flick.  yes, i openly admit that i like chic flick and this is one of them.  this one is quite nice.  and the reason being is that i love both of the houses the two main character are living in... one lived in a quaint cottage somewhere in surrey...with snowy landscape in the background... loved that scene... and another one is a sunset blvd house in hollywood that is huge but somehow it is just incredibly homey in spite of all the space and looked rather posh.

having a cup of coffee now and not really sure what to have for dinner...

and good lord i'm actually sweating... but the sun is not as bright now... and going to set soon...

tis the week begin..

monday evening.  it was alright... woke up around 7.15 in the morning and it was hard to wake up really.  don't know why.  slept quite early the night before.  was having a bit of a flu.  i did not take that piriton tablet since i woke up feeling horrible the morning before because i took one that saturday night.

the day was alright.  busy getting some stuff done and at the end could not finish it.  guess i have to finish it tomorrow

the king of limbs

radiohead new album was out 2 days ago and i can't wait to get it really and this new single from the album is kinda nice.  weird choreography though... more like freestyling to me but it's thom yorke... anything he does is a bit weird...


saturday in the apartment.

 right... almost a month plus since i moved to my new apartment.  staying with a new housemate now.  rarely see her around.  but i do see her in the apartment ... she there... i don't imagine it...

anyways.. yeah chee is settling down at his new apartment as well... so both of us settled in a way in our new place.  kinda miss sunnyville though... it was a bit bigger than the one i'm staying right now... but the one i'm staying now is just nice really... 

on the 10th floor. a bit windy sometimes... and the best thing is that it is a stone throws from the lab... yeah i am not kidding about the distance being a stone throw... if i throw a stone from my balcony, it would hit the roof of my lab building... :D

anyways... still using the internet that i am using in sunnyville. will change it later... it's getting on my nerves really... will change my internet service provider next month.

the apartment is fully furnished.  my room has an attached bath and that's cool... bed and wardrobe and ceiling fan and air condition unit.  all nice.  

living room is basic.  a couch. a coffee table.  a tv stand with a tv on it.  not a nice one really but just alright.  did not get a cable though. thought i would not going to watch it all the time.  think having an internet connection is good enough.

kitchen is complete with a fridge.  an old looking one but it's clean.  a cooking stove.  got the cooking gas tank just today and with that i might start a cooking session again soon.  and finally an old looking washing machine which does its job pretty well really... so no complain there...

been a very tiring and stressful month last month really.. there this new project.  data to analyse and prepared. and all other stuff... other confusion.  self emotional conflict.  not going to elaborate here really..

anyways, will start nesting soon.  was thinking of plants for the apartment.  and some furniture.  maybe cupboards or tables... need a study table really... 

yeah.. nesting i am... : )

shanghai trip...

ok ok... i know i think it's due time for me to post my shanghai photos. it was an ok trip to the city but i wish i could stay for another day to explore the city.

so i landed from singapore at shanghai pudong airport around 1800 hours and disembarked from the plane and straight to the immigration counters.  loads of people and the chinese immigration people kinda efficient.  but they don't really speak english though....

so got through the customs, went to the baggage claim area.  had this paranoia that my suitcase sesat sampai argentina and not going to have any clothes for the next 3 days! but alas.... saw my shiny black suitcase on the carousel.  quickly took it from the revolving thingy... and went out to find the taxi stand.

came out of the arrival hall.... saw loads of people waiting for their passenger... with huge placards and all... i just walked pass them.... in my heart i was hoping one person holding my name with a car waiting for me to bring me to my four seasons room.... hehhehe... yes yes... and i want a pony too...

so went to the taxi stand - i could have use the maglev train... but i wasn't sure where will the line end and how far it is from the hotel... s instead i opt for the taxi....

got in to the taxi.... but yeah i actually got stuck in the traffic.  and quietly i was swearing.... i'm going to stuck in this jam for 10 days and have to beg for food!
 

(photo uploading is seriously se-low to the maximum of slow loris going backwards to the beginning of time! - will try again later)

so yeah it was an ok drive from the airport but i was a bit confuse when i see them driving on the right side of the road!  kinda blur lor... but after a while it dawned to me that they drive differently there...

anyways...arrived at the city but the taxi brought me to the crowne plaza instead... and again i have to hand signal him that is not where i'm staying... and the bell boy from crowne plaza have to tell the taxi driver the way to my hotel instead... i was seriously considering crowne plaza at that moment! but then... have to save... have to save...

(....TBC.....jeng jeng jeng...)
 
 so yeah my first photos was taken from the taxi i was on, from the airport to the hotel.

(aiiiiiiieeeeeeee?!?!??!.. i can't upload those photos.. geramnye.... i think i should re-size my photos... eeeee...)

(TBC.....sigh...)
 
ok... let me try again uploading the photos from this shanghai trip....here goes...
taxi ride from the airport to the hotel

 
so like YAY! i got it uploaded... just as i suspected.  images to large.  takes time to be uploaded. so reduced the image size and yay! still look nice!
ok that first photo was taken inside the taxi.  was kinda hoping the taxi stopped at a traffic light at places where it is interesting... but no.... nothing interesting on the road...wanted to take some of the chinese road signs.. also cannot... taxi too fast.
 
inside taxi but somewhere in town
 
so this was taken somewhere in town and the taxi stopped at the traffic light... 
in my room.  2 beds. one bed for me to put other stuff and my lappie.  and my bag.  and my journal.  

the next day after nearly missed the conference... found the place... like miles away from where i stayed.  apparently fudan university has a branch at this hi-tech park, Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park.
 
so yeah to continue back my photo uploading process.. long yes...
