前幾天與朋友吃飯, 說起在舊公司, 某甲剛加入公司時已經爭取表現, 某乙又請纓服務人群, Poo是以為他們是把各種公務[攬]上身, 好讓老闆裁員時輪不到他(Poo奶奶定律)...朋友解釋說他們為的是有藉口, 以後可以名正言順以辦公務去躲懶....我這才恍然大悟emoticon.....

朋友忍不住笑說 :[做了那麼多年工作, 那麼明顯.....]
[猜不到你的智商原來那末低!!哈哈!]
.....Poo好像被人當頭棒喝一般emoticon...心理耿耿於懷了好一陣子..... emoticon

今天公司請來專業攝影師為公司拍攝宣傳短片, 討厭做佈景版的Poo奶奶(要不就做主角, 對嗎emoticon), 不斷找尋機會和藉口逃避鏡頭. 到了下班的一刻, 正要logout之際, 老闆走來叫我戴上耳機裝佈景版, 我告訴他已經到了下班時間, 他說:[留下來多數分鐘, 幫個忙吧~]只有萬分不情願地留下...

結果搞了大約十分鐘仍然未拍攝, 看到他跟攝影師關了門在商討, 我馬上logout, 悄然地離開了辦公室...走了去公司附近的美容中心做瘦身療程.....

瘦身療程完成後, 盤算著應否回公司上網, 又怕被老闆逮個正著質問為何消失, 便發完短訊給友好詢問現場情況....之後便步入升降機....emoticon

步出升降機時竟然踫到要到停車場取車的老闆, 心裡暗叫:[SHIT!!]....emoticon 只好硬著頭皮笑問 :[拍攝完畢了嗎?順利嗎?]老闆說:[還沒有, 但兒子不適, 要先行回家. 今天真的很感謝你的協助哩!] 哇, 真的有點不好意思呢....emoticon

與老闆分閞之後收到友人回覆說[現埸拍攝仍在進行中, 但不見老闆踪影, 想是回家了], 想起剛才的情形, 腦海中只有兩個字emoticon...........

People who know me well knows that I am not a big spender.  To be exact, I am quite stingy. emoticon

Many people said taxi fare in Singapore is cheap / affordable, comparing to Hong Kong / Japan.  Don't mention about Europe, US or Australia.    

I've been living in Singapore for almost 2 yearsemoticon, from Oct 2004 to Aug 2006,  below is some data for my travelling pattern :

Taxi 
4 times to airport (unable to catch the earliest flight by bus, 1 more time I happened to share with other travellers from Betelbox, so it's not aloneemoticon)
- 1 time from airport (landed after midnite, bus stopped already)
- 2 times for job interviews (wanted to arrive in a better shape in tropical warm Singapore)
1 time from hospital to office when I sprang my right calf last year
- 1 time from MRT to home as I was too sick to walk the 20 mins.
- 1 time to work (set my clock 1 hour behind SG time when coming back from overseas).
- 1 time to meet a friend who didn't have much time and the location is far from MRT.
- 1 time returning home from the neighbourhood as it was raining (it's about 20 mins walk only)
= 12 times

Of course there are times I took taxis with friends, the above was only refering to the times that I had to take a cab alone, without sharing with other people.

At times, I was walking 45 mins home across a dark quiet park at 2am; or travelling miles across the country on a bus after midnite when I had to get up early the next day for morning shift.....emoticon

經過一年刻苦, 刻板, 刻薄的生活, 六月從香港回來之後, 我醒悟到要對自己好些....人生觀輕微的轉變, 日常消費模式也改變了...
首先, 購買了美容中心的面部護理及按摩療程. (女人唔由補好易老)emoticon. 之後到處嘗試美酒佳餚emoticon. 沒有互聯網的日子那麼空虛, 便參加了很多興趣班 - 潛水, 瑜伽, 品酒, wakeboarding ..等等活動,務使自己不會無所事事emoticon, 渾渾噩噩過日子.
現在的我, 逢星期二上hatha瑜伽, 星期四打羽毛球, 每星期總會到美容中心一次, 做面部護理, 全身按摩,磨砂或中藥蒸氣浴; 星期一, 三, 五, 六, 日就約會朋友見面,吃飯emoticon,
聯絡, 聯絡.  銀行存款是沒有增長, 但新加坡生活已經沒有初初到埗時那末苦悶了.因為我用錢換取了開心和快樂.
以前人說女人四十爛茶渣, 後來有人說女人四十一支花,
潛水, wakeboard, 羽毛球 ....對於我現在的體能來說仍然是易如反掌,  真是夫復何求?
女人四十.....易.. emoticon
emoticon女人四十二emoticon

Many people have tried searching their own names on the internet search engines. 

When I put "Grace Yung" on google.com, it pops up with a few grace yungs whom are not Poo99 except this one : http://www.asiaweek.com/asiaweek/97/0829/biz4.html

It was written by my very good friend Audrey Snee back in 1997 (This edition's table of contents)emoticon
