Early pay for Lunar New Year

February 16th, 2007 at 10:19 pm

I got my pay in earlier this month because of the Lunar New Year. Which was cool, but it doesn't make much of a difference to me personally. And not just because I don't celebrate it.

Most companies in Asia would give their employees their pay before the New Year starts since families would be spending more on food, decorations, the reunion dinner, and money packets for their family members.

Me? I just really love the two days off from work. Wink

Budget-wise, today is a no-spend day for me. I made my own breakfast and lunch. And I plan to do the same tomorrow as well.

I will not nap...

I woke up with a runny and stuffed nose this morning.

No big deal, but I didn't want to be wiping my nose every five minutes, so I popped two of these non-drowsy cold pills that my dad just bought.

Then I had some breakfast.

I've found out now that the non-drowsy claim is totally misleading, because I'm almost nodding off as I'm typing this.

Hmm... I just read the back of the box, and noticed they've mis-spelled "non-drowsy" as "non-drowse" on the top. Its also made in Bogor, Indonesia.


On the other hand, my nose is clear, and today is Sunday which means I can nap at will. Smile

I'm not gonna nap though.

Today is Sunday and I must wind down.

I've made a cup of piping hot, black coffee with a ton of sugar, just the way I like it.

And I will not sleep.

Because today is Sunday.

Old friends are gold

Not much to report for this week. I guess overall its less than successful because I did order in my lunch yesterday... sigh.

I felt quite guilty because I spent $9.60 on food, when I could've just spent just a couple of dollars instead.

I would've made my own lunch, except that on Friday night I had met up my best friend for dinner and I got home too late to buy any groceries - which is my usual routine.

Next time I should probably think ahead a bit more. Well, live and learn.

The good part is that it was awesome to see her again. We've been friends for 13 years and she's one of my oldest and dearest friends. We went to high school and college together and were rarely apart those years. Once we got out of school and started working different jobs we saw each other a lot less but when we do meet up, its like nothing's changed.

After dinner we walked outside, found a place to sit and had a nice long talk about everything under the sky. It was just like the old days.

Plus she treated me to dinner, which was really sweet. Next time its my turn Smile
