After getting so much from PITA, I’m glad to announce that I finally had my revenge today. OK lah… just a bit only.

PITA came over to ask me to explain to him how to run a job. He need to do it on Sunday. I’m the only person in the team who had run that job before as it is quite new. In fact, I’ve taught everyone how to run the job during the previous team meeting.

So I told him that I’ve already taught everyone how to run the job. If he got any problem, can refer to the powerpoint slide.

This phrase sound very very familar. Didn’t he used that on me before?

“Prima donna” is Italian for “first lady”. The term was used to designate the leading female singer in the opera company, the person to whom the prime roles would be given. Nowadays the term often signifies a vain, obnoxious and temperamental person who, although irritating, cannot be done without.

I love Dilbert comic. I’m glad that I got the calender so that it can company me everyday at work. Sometimes the comic really reflect my workplace. For example, this few days, the comic is talking about a newly hired Prima Donna who declared that he is above the rules and can walk around the office without pants.

Do you have a Prima Donna in your office?

No, he doesn’t have to go around the office without pants. That is too extreme. But do you have someone who is so full of himself and break the rules in office. And nobody, not even his boss can do anything about it because he is indispensable.

I have one at my office. If you can still remember, I wrote about him here about four months ago.

What happen was that I needed him to help get do something. Without asking, he raised his voice, shouted at me and slam the phone. I’m fine if he doesn’t want to help, but is there a need to shout and slam phone?

I understand from my colleague that he is holding on to some very important task in the company. His knowledge is very good and he is indispensable in his team. Which explains why no action was taken against him after I wrote an email to his boss. Not even a reply from his boss. Nothing! I think the boss just ignore my email. He didn’t do anything because this guy is important to his team. He is indispensable.

I thought of escalating this issue to higher level. But I wonder, what’s the point? This guy is a Prima Donna. He can pee on the director’s desk and the director still have to smile at him. So what if I bring the issue to higher level? It will only force them to cover up the issue. They might even turn the table against me just to protect him.

Its sad to see a company with such people around. Nobody should be indispensable. Nobody should be king. Nobody should be treated like a Prima Donna.

I’m sure there are more Prima Donna in my company. I won’t be surprised. I just hope I don’t get to work with anyone of them.

Singnet upgrade 1500kbps to 3mbps
Got a letter from Singnet informing me that they will be upgrading my 1500kbps broadband to 3mbps.

This shows that the broadband speed I’m using is too slow and has become obsoleted.

Hitchoo oops
One thing I don’t like about the Hitchoo cards is that you have to write the username and passkey on the card yourself. My handwriting sucks. It’s going to ruin the look of the card. The gal might not even recognise the words that I wrote.

And when you got 8 cards to write at one go, chances are, you will make an error.

Oops…. I wrote the passkey on the userid field. One less Hitchoo card.

decayonnet IPO
I discovered that my blog is listed on the stock exchange. Well, Blog Stock Market to be exact. The share price is at B$2,830.31 per share currently. Wow.

Wondering what the exchange rate to real currency. If the money is good, I might consider selling my blog. Haha….

PS:The currency they use is B$…. which reminds me of Bull Shit.

Yahoo! to Apprentice
I don’t know if I’m the last person on earth to know this. But you can watch Apprentice Season 6 on Yahoo! TV. In case you don’t know, I love to watch The Apprentice. There is always a lesson to take away from every episode.

Its great that I can watch The Apprentice legally online. In the past, I have to use illegal means to get my hands on the video files. Can die from waiting for local television station to air season 6.

PS: If you don’t want to know who is the winner for season 6, then find something to cover the top right corner.

Blog to America
Got an email from one of the owner of a very cool blog call Blog to America. He invited me to submit an entry to their blog. Blog to America is a place where foreign perspectives on the United States could be voiced and heard by normal, everyday people across the globe.

Interesting concept. Love the idea. If you have anything you want to let Americans know, feel free to submit an entry. I will write an entry on Iraq war when I got the time.

Perhaps Singapore should also do this too. So that we can see how others view Singapore.

Some gal cannot make her drunk
Went for a birthday party at the clinic recently. Our mission was simple, make the birthday gal drunk. After I made 3 person drunk in one night at my friend’s wedding, I thought this is going to be simple. But I soon found out that some gal cannot make drunk one. Cause when they are drunk, they do this.

OUCH!!!

Someday, I’ll sing this to the gal I love.

I would fly up to the moon and back if you’ll be…
If you’ll be my baby
I’ve got a ticket for a world where we belong
So would you be my baby?

That is provided that I managed to find her first……

Savage Garden – To the Moon and Back Lyrics

She’s taking her time making up the reasons
To justify all the hurt inside
Guess she knows from the smiles and the look in their eyes
Everyone’s got a theory about the bitter one
They’re saying, “Mama never loved her much”
And, “Daddy never keeps in touch
That’s why she shies away from human affection”
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she’s waiting for the right kind of pilot to come
And she’ll say to him
She’s sayin

I would fly up to the moon and back if you’ll be…
If you’ll be my baby
I’ve got a ticket for a world where we belong
So would you be my baby?

She can’t remember a time when she felt needed
If love was red then she was color blind
All her friends, well they’ve been trialed for treason
And crimes that were never defined
She’s saying, “Love is like a barren place,
And reaching out for human faith
It’s like a journey I just don’t have a map for”
So baby’s gonna take a dive and
Push the shift to overdrive
Send a signal that she’s hanging
All her hopes on the stars
What a pleasant dream
She’s sayin

I would fly up to the moon and back if you’ll be…
If you’ll be my baby
I’ve got a ticket for a world where we belong
So would you be my baby?

Hold on, hold on …

Mama never loved her much
And, Daddy never keeps in touch
That’s why she shies away from human affection
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she’s waiting for the right kind of pilot to come
And she’ll say to him
She’s sayin

I would fly up to the moon and back if you’ll be…
If you’ll be my baby
I’ve got a ticket for a world where we belong
So would you be my baby?

I would fly up to the moon and back if you’ll be…
If you’ll be my baby
I’ve got a ticket for a world where we belong
So would you be my baby?
yeaaaah …

I was being tagged by the love specialist few weeks ago. This is a tough tag. Got me thinking for quite some time. OK, maybe not as tough as the one that the Chio Chio De Aunty gave me in Apr.

I hope I’m doing it correctly. 🙂

I think the best symbol to represent me is the “Question Mark”.

Why the question mark? It is not because I ask a lot of questions.

I feel that the question mark symbol best represent me because I’m still an unknown factor. I still don’t know what exactly am I capable of doing. I’m still a question mark. But we are going to find out soon.

Perhaps if I were to do this meme few years later, it would be a better symbol.

Tag 5 people:
