I feel so ... embarrassed!

This is real life joke ...
I was the joke!!

I was suppose to call a client in HK to resolve some issues they had back there. I m still not used to the dialing system here at work, initially having problems to dial out of the country till I got my babe near me to teach and help me out on that.

And so i dialed out of the country for the 1st time, and guess what happen ...

1st attempt
me holding on to the phone ..." doot doot... doot doot...."
the other end picked up :" Cary ..."
me :" I"m sorry who is that speaking please? "
guy : " who are u looking for ...?"
me (freaked out a bit ) :" oh i think i must have got the wrong no. I'm sorry ..."

... and I put down the phone

2nd attempt
" doot doot ...."
guy :" cary ..."
me :" oh ... sorry i got the wrong no again ..."
guy :" silent ..."

3rd attempt
( and the final attempt)

"doot doot... "
guy:" cary ..."
me :" Hi .. ermm.... "
guy:" hi are u wendy ?"
me:" yes i am , and i m looking for cary .... Are u ...?? "
guy:" u were expecting Cary to be a lady ... *paused for a bit* I am the Cary u are looking for ..."
me:" Oh... *stunned* I m so so sorry Cary ...I didnt ...."

both of us just laughed...

Well, it was silly i know ...
i could have just ask to speak to Cary instead of assumed i got the wrong no. ...
silly monk3y me!

Oh well, the call ended fine, he wasnt angry or anything and I was able to get the issues resolved so ...

... i still feel silly

Comments (if any) : Having to pay $9.50 for pasta & shrimp salad wasnt really a big problem. I would like to express my dissatisfaction on that the salad that i had, was tasteless and i have to add lots of salt ? Also the pasta doesnt seem like its cooked properly or its been left uncovered in the fridge for some time. When i approach the cashier for the bill n a comment card, i was asked what's my concern. I told her about it but it was not addressed properly. My dissatisfaction level is really high and really disappointed at Fish & Co for the service n food particularly at the Sun Tec Branch ... & no i wont visit Fish & Co again, so are my friends. No, u may not contact me as u have just lost a bunch of customer who used to love the fish in Fish & Co

and here is to prove of how fast their response is, to the complaint i lodge online!
but prior to tat, the personnel called me on my mobile to apologized personally

i know i know, i was mean to her on the phone, cos i have already mentioned not to be contacted!!!!

well, take a look at the email she sent. It was nice of her to do so, but seriously - I M NOT BOTHERED !!!

Fish & Co

Last Tues I met up with Zionsys at Suntec for dinner.
After 20 min walking around at Suntec, we have finally decided to eat at Fish & co for a change ...
A pretty bad experience for the 2nd time i dined at Fish & co.
it got onto my nerves and i lodge a complaint the next day on the website provided... telling them of how unhappy i was!

What happened that night was, i felt adventurous and not wanting to go for the usual Fish & Chips, so I ordered Pasta & Shrimp salad and seafood chowder instead...

the pasta taste awful. Tasted as if its not cooked properly or it has been left in the fridge uncovered for the whole day!!!

the veg was ok but the dressing ... ewww! ... you wouldn't want to know how much of salt i have added just to get the taste!!

I couldn't even make myself finish the whole thing...I tried hard!!
& having to pay $9.50 for this "tasteless & hard" pasta & shrimp salad ... my heart ached for the whole night!!!

We sat there for more than 15min just to wait for the bill
I wasnt in the good mood after the salad, and being me, shortfused, i got up and went straight to the till and asked for the bill for the 3rd time and also a comment card.

I know they were busy serving and and but we have asked nicely for the bill for more than once and no one attended to us?!??!
What were they thinking ???

Anyway when i asked for the comment card, the lady ( the outlet in charge i suppose) looked at me, dumb founded like no one has asked for a comment card b4 ...
after she printed out the receipt, i paid for it unhappily then only she asked me what are my concerns ...

and so i tell her how unhappy i was having to pay such amount for this tasteless pasta i had and all...

her answer to me was ..." oh, ok.... is there any other concern?"

gosh!!! she didnt even address my issue properly and not even offer to take it off the bill!!!!
I even asked her is that the way they prepare the salad? cos it didnt taste anything like i had b4

Well, i had enough, obviously she was in "la-la land" at that point of time or something ...
So i didnt even bother to get my change and just walk off ...


Received an email from a fren with these content below...
when i have time i will try to translate them into English (^^,)








( I like this one the best )

Most people must be still wondering but I personally think this is NOW an over-used word by all ages, but do we really know the history or the origin of this over-used word??

Yes ...I am talking about the word - F.U.C.K
here is the answer ... make sure u laugh! else ... u gotta think of a better explanation for me then!

In ancient England, people could not have sex without consent from the King.
When people wanted to have a child, they had to solicit permission to the monarchy, in turn they would supply a plaque to hang on their door when they had sexual relations.

The plaque read ...

onsent of the

in short - (F.U.C.K)

This is the origin of the word...


Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears.
And you will find things are actually not as difficult as you think.

There are 4 things that you cannot recover ...

The Stone ...
... after the throw

The words ...
...after it's said

The Occasion ...
... after the loss

The times ...
... after its gone

R.I.P - Uncle Terence

I was taking a nap in the earlier afternoon as I wasnt really feeling well. I had a dream that some1 is talking to me and sobbing too

... then my phone rang aunt Margaret called, I sensed that something is not right! True enough she broke the news to me in her sobbing voice ...

"Uncle Terence just passed ..."

I was still half asleep... after that she just put down the phone

Half an hour later I woke up, tears on my pillow, I wasn't sure if I was dreaming or was it real
So i called Aunt Vivian ... and the 1st thing she said to me was ...

"Uncle Terence just passed...
all waiting for the arrangements to be confirmed"

So it was real, I wasn't dreaming after all ...

My Deepest Condolences to
Aunt Ruby, Calvin, Glenda
& all in the family

*monk3y is upset upon hearing the news ...

MOS burger

This would be my second time having MOS Burger in Sg ... Not bad overall, at least its economically priced ( & Japanese Burger leh~! ) Demonstration on how to eat MOS Chicken from MOS Burger (obviously right ... d'oh)

Step 1:

Hold the pack with both hands.
Follow the instructions on the paper bag
(the only bad point abt it is - these bags are "Made in China",
therefore its all written in Chinese... and i hope its 'Melamine Free' *LOL*)

Step 2:

Tear the paper bag following the prefrerated lines on the bag

*Note: be very carefull as it will tear out of line ...

(usual la ... what can we expect?!)

Step 3:

...& here we have, an innovation from the Japanese to eat chicken without "oiling" our fingers ...

(not for KFC though, its meant to be Finger Lickin' good,

therefore you HAVE to use ur hands, but not in MOS ... LOL )

also introducing MOS Crouquette Burger ...

not very intriging as u will be eating mostly carbs...

(d'oh... its potato and bread!)

Have you tried MOS Burger??

Well, if u haven't, try it out and see if u'll like it (^^,)

this is one of my personal favourite (^^,)

這是一首簡單的小情歌 , 唱著人們心腸的曲折
當有你的溫熱 腳邊的空氣轉了

這是一首簡單的小情歌 , 唱著我們心頭的白鴿
當一個歌頌者 青春在風中飄著

就算大雨讓整座城市顛倒 我會給你懷抱
受不了 看見你背影來到
寫下我 度秒如年難捱的離騷
就算整個世界被寂寞綁票 我也不會奔跑
寫下我 時間和琴聲交錯的城堡

這是一首簡單的小情歌 唱著我們心頭的白鴿
當一個歌頌者 青春在風中飄著
就算大雨讓整座城市顛倒 我會給你懷抱
受不了 看見你背影來到
寫下我 度秒如年難捱的離騷
逃不了 最後誰也都蒼老
寫下我 時間和琴聲交錯的城堡
就算大雨讓整座城市顛倒 我會給你懷抱
受不了 看見你背影來到
寫下我 度秒如年難捱的離騷
就算整個世界被寂寞綁票 我也不會奔跑逃不了
寫下我 時間和琴聲交錯的城堡

p/s: if only we have em here ...


here is a cute & romantic song to share with all ...

AMORE by Dean Martin
well, just in case u feel like singing along, here are the words~!
Enjoy~!!! (^^,)

In Napoli where love is king
When boy meets girl here's what they say
When the moon hits you eye
like a big pizza pie
That's AMORE

When the world seems to shine
like you've had too much wine
That's AMORE

Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling,
And you'll sing "Vita bella"
Hearts will play
tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
Like a gay tarantella
When the stars make you drool
just like a pasta fazool
That's amore

When you dance down the street
with a cloud at your feet
You're in love
When you walk down in a dream
but you know you're not Dreaming
signore Scuzza me, but you see,
back in old Napoli
That's AMORE

When the stars make you drool
just like a pasta fazool
That's AMORE

When you dance down the street
with a cloud at your feet
You're in love
When you walk down in a dream
but you know you're not Dreaming
signore Scuzza me, but you see,
back in old Napoli
That's AMORE
