For someone who isn't particularly tech-savvy, I have to say I'm quite proud of myself for (finally) updating my iPhone to the ios 5-point-something. Hehe. Nevermind that all I had to do was click on the button "Update" and let my macbook / iTunes do the rest. Point is, I've updated my phone! By myself!

And what pleases me even more is that I didn't lose any of my apps! My VLC player is still there (with all my episodes of Brothers and Sisters), my games (Dragonvale Level 23 oh yeah!) and everything else. The only thing that's missing was my ringtone, which was that annoying laugh from that cartoon and I can't even remember what it was. I'm now using a duck quack sound. Hehe.

And the reason for my recent technological bravado? I wanted to buy this app- Zombies, Run! It's an app that narrates a background story about erm... I don't know what, but there are zombies chasing you. Lol. And you have to complete missions.. and.. well, zombies are chasing you.

In other news, it's been two months at the new job and so far everything's been great. I like the proximity between my office and home, making it easier to motivate oneself to walk or jog home. I think the total distance is only 7+ km.

Food is cheap, so I've really been able to save money. This really helped, what with my dad's 70th birthday being such a huge expense this month.

My colleagues are really nice, but I do miss the folks at my old workplace. Buying kopi in the morning is just not the same without my daily morning chatfests with babycakes and bitching sessions are not as catty.

I do have my fair share of guffaw-inducing moments in my office with my boss too, so I'm glad she is someone that I can get along pretty well with.

Other than that, everything else seems pretty good. And I'm guessing that things can only get better. :D

I know, I know. A majority of my more recent posts have been about me complaining about the effects of having too much caffeine in the system. Today's (rather, yesterday) damage?

2 cups of kopi PLUS 2 cups of teh. Gulp.

Fast forward to now and I don't know why I'm still surprised that I'm wide awake. Bah.

Anyway the reason for consuming so much caffeine was that I was in a staff orientation the whole day (one of three days, I might add) and needed something to help keep me awake.

Plus, the set up was pretty cute- a flask of teh-o and kopi-o and a can of condensed milk so you could add as much as you want. Heehee.

Ah well, at least the weekend is coming soon. Can finally recover from the crazy 2 weeks with all the relatives in town for my dad's birthday.

Knead It Baby

My back, neck and shoulders are aching and what I'd really want right now is a lovely deep tissue massage.
