有大志 X 不如勤做事:過日子

有時候
以其用很多時間
來擔心明天的未知數
不如花多點時間
來把今天的工作完成

因為畢竟沒有人知道
明天會是甚麼狀況
但肯定的是
把今天的工作做好
明天醒來也少些煩躁

記得今年一月一日
說過2013的願望
就是第一季
讓自己過得好好的

今天這麼快
就是1st Q 的最後一天
沒穿沒爛還不錯
而且還長了肉
又有好幾件褲子快擠爆了

所以很簡單
未來這三個月的任務
手頭上的作業
能"迎刃而解"
尤其是那些小組作業
不必讓我這麼"嘔心瀝血"

還有那些肉
能減則減最好
不能減就當作看不見
反正今年應該也不會去島

再好好過暑假去
再回到崗位
再訂些機票
再繼續衝刺
再循環下去

沒別人賺得多
沒專業學術
沒男朋友
沒車子

這些確實
不是我管轄範圍的事

星期日傍晚
能做的事
不僅是
淪陷在Monday Blue的愁雲慘霧裡

弄個甜點或甚麼的
想一下 今晚幾點開餐
過好日子 莫過於此

Clock Ticks X New Pick: Secured Airtics

was comparing this earlier this morning

AirAsia vs MAS

2013.03.26 AA2013.03.26 MAS

 

not too bad right

Malaysia Airlines is at least now

quite competitive in term of price

against Air Asia

 

and that price is inclusive of

meal(s?) and luggage allowance of 30kg

therefore well

not much difference between the both

around RM 100+ per pax

 

Should I?

but why would I buying service from

a bloody inefficient corporation?

not sure about now, it was indeed notorious

 

pro of taking MAS

more comfortable seats

though I am not quite sure how spacious AirAsia X is

compared to the usual AirAsia plane

 

and the touch down timing is better

AirAsia is touching down at Beijing at 0050

whereas MAS is at 0635

 

both are quite lousy

no check-in can be made before 2p.m. right

but at least 0635 is slightly better than 0050

to spend the night at airport

 

tick tock tick tock

following the price

you will never know how fast the price can rise

 

texted dad

apparently he was pretty much keen on the trip too

he preferred to move the date one day earlier

flying on Sundays to maximize the weekend break

 

okay that makes the choosing process easier

to fly on those Sundays selected

it’s actually cheaper to go by MAS

compared to AirAsia

 

you see

AirAsia’s price is rather tight

at times it’s rather difficult to get a perfect deal

between the depart vs return tic

2013.03.26 AA03

 

on the other hand,

for MAS, price is stable throughout the month

and flying time is more flexible too

since there are two flights per day

2013.03.26 MAS03

 

passport details

I did not have them in hand right now

told dad I will do the booking then tomorrow

it turned out that

he is even more anxious than me

texted me the details immediately

 

and Beijing is one of the destinations on the

must-go-before-I-die list 

at least once, probably

 

some holidays are planned

based on the airfare sales

based on travel mate’s suggestions

based on travelling trend

 

but Beijing has always been there on my list

it feels like going back home

trust me I was born there or was

residing there during

my previous life

 

flipping books, checking hotels, weathers

doing all necessary researches

way before air tickets are booked

finally can continue doing the researches

without that surreptitious look

 

security is

a pair of un-flown tickets

which gives me loads of motivation to go on

The Kid X Used to Read: Vintage Classic

At a corner of the bookshelf
Found these "crispy-golden" books
Which accompanied me
Through the days long before
iBook, Facebook & Lookbook

Paperback 1800's novels
Beautifully written language
And a lot of new vocabs to pick up

the English settings with
Elegant ladies with refined manners
Eloquent gentlemen with taste for
Clothes and fine wine

The storylines which did not flow as fast
Yet do not lose the elements of
Suspense, romance, evilness etc

Those were the days
when I was less decayed

Tour MisPresence X Weak Resistance: New & Balanced

was acting the tour guide

for Her Highness

a day trip around Melaka town

15 Mar - Melaka with Her Highness

 

ended up in malls

due to the scotching weather

not that I am afraid of the sun

but Queen being the Queen

as the tour guide

it is my duty to give her the utmost comforts 

to make her Melaka trip a pleasant one

 

was lurking around these

I kept them in view since last Dec

should I or shouldn’t?

but frankly speaking

they are a little too plain

except the New Balance logo

especially the one in blue huh

arrrgghhh… and it is like less than RM 100 per pair 

New Balance Whites

 

the window display of Stylix

always like this design

particularly on certain days

they turned the fan on

and the clothes were practically

swinging to and fro

as if they are being hanged outdoor

Heart the Window display

 

Padini did it again, such awesome one 

varsity locker!!

swing into spring

 

loots of the day

Unisex Classics - New Balance 420

The retro-running 420 comes in a variety of colors that pay homage to past US track and field teams. With its solid rubber outsole and lightweight suede/mesh upper, this versatile shoe will lend classic style to your favorite outfits.

new balance u420 navy

 

my mom gonna kill me

my Manager gonna tsk me

my sister gonna criticize me

 

but really,

I am willing to give up the Whites

because this is all it takes to be

a proper pair of sneakers, in my definition

lightweight, suede texture, not bulky looking

the perfect colour of navy blue and grey

with a tinge of baby blue 

the extra pair of baby blue shoes lace is a bonus

new balance u420 navy

 

the Whites I can keep them in view for months

meaning, I don’t really need them that much

but this pair of Navy Suede NBies

is way too much a temptation

that I know I gonna miss them terribly

if I have to keep them in view

even for one day

 

and hey

first buy from Stylix

both are quite tribal-ish

after back home

I started to have some serious doubts

about the shorts

never have I owned such a pair of printed shorts

99.9% of my pants are plain

dare me to pair both items together and

probably along with a fully plaited hair

tribal shorts

 

soon

in progress

removing the sleeves away

tribal print tank top

 

done!!

crazy, why would you buy a top if

you have to modify it before you even remove the tag

tribal print tank top

 

already have a plan

for the disposed sleeves

would make a good mini tribal pocket

for this cropped top

but removing is always easy

adding on is much complicated I guess

cropped blue top

 

isn’t that a new top?

well… a little plain

simply because it is another shade of blue

which is so school-children-like 

let’s hope the mini pocket will help

 

thanks to the trip

suddenly my shopping expenditure of 2013

doubled overnight

buying something that I have to

hide underneath the closet

at least for the 3 months to come

 

summer trip!!

yeah baby,

tribal print and NBies

 

till then

don’t buy anything else alright 

 

I guess I have what it takes to be

a tour guide

except the shopping part

 

they always tell you to beware of

tour guide who leads you to

certain factory, outlet etc etc

since they tend to “con” you into buying

so that they benefit from the commission

 

where on earth can you find another tour guide

who ended up doing her own shopping

totally putting her supposed task asides

Maserati showroom, Cartier, LV Gucci 

Coach outlet, Kun Ming

 

the tranquil

Garden in Yuan Tong Temple 圓通寺

 

the busy  

an electrical bike is the common mode of transport

mind you,

they are on the main road,

quite disregarding the traffic signals

on pedestrian walk,

sliding past you from the back, totally no sound at all

simply because,

it’s neither a bicycle nor a motorbike 

busy yet never get into each other way

 

the tall

Bell Tower 鐘樓

 

the even taller

and all over the town

apartments are all over

 

the sunny day

frankly speaking, I have not stepped my foot into

any of the huge malls 

major shopping area in KunMing

 

the cooling night

major shopping area in KunMing

 

the Emperor’s 

Jin Dian Temple 金殿

 

the commoners

old medicine hall, declared as heritage building 福林堂舊址

 

the yesterday

a statue of man going into town with his two donkeys

 

the tomorrow,

the Metro lines are still under construction

only two stations are ready, as of Mar 2013

Airport – Western Bus Station

however, the public buses are really convenient

the brand new Metro coach

 

the local breakfast/lunch/dinner delight

KunMing fav Noodle - 過橋米線

 

the where-ever-you-go-i-M-here-for-you

sigh…highly-saturated fast food outlets

McDonalds, whereever you go

 

the localization

they also serve

pork-chop rice, red bean pie, seaweed soup

KFC breakfast: Porridge & yao char kway

 

the exceptionally expensive,

simply because it’s HK style

and yet “super-relatively” small portion

HK duck rice

 

the budget style,

yet tasting pretty good and

coming in a wide variety of flavours

as low as 3 for 10 RMB at Carrefour

as high as 10 RMB each, at tourist attraction

as reasonable as 6 RMB each, at the airport

ooppss,

did I just exposed how much I have eaten these

spicy Instant Noodle
