Panic? Hell yeah!

At times like this I thank God for the existence of  Starbucks.....

......because no matter how bad a day it is I can always use a good cup of coffee.

The day had been a busy one, despite the fact that its Friday and almost the entire office is on a holiday mood. I was feeling buzzy myself, until I sat on a 2 hour meeting dissecting my most recent project that's due for finalisation (like what? yesterday?).

I think I was no longer (pukey) green or blue - but rather white as hell when I found out that...

....there's still about 40 more slides to go before this episode will ever end;

....there's still changes need to be done to the original (ever-changing) excel version because we (again) found another loophole;

*as if there were no loopholes before, sigh*

....there is a need to re-work certain stuff because apparently I am sitting on a goldmine of information but its haphazardly everywhere....grrrrr!!!!!!!

But that's not the worst part.

Wait for it....wait for it.....

Guess what? This thing will never end because now it has to be periodically updated.

I wanted to laugh, but I suppose I turned pale and white instead - and I only realised that I am displaying horror across the table when my boss says "its okay, there's no need to panic just yet...." and so he goes with mitigating statements to cushion the blow.

Meeting was ended with one statement...

"Its okay Zuraida. Take your time to do it. You can send it in piecemeal so we can look at it while we are all at home over the weekend. It'll be a great reading material".

Yeah. I suppose will do. Gotta go back to it then once I finish this cuppa.

Island piccas!

It has been a crazy week - but I have to say it had been a good one. Was at Singapore for work and gosh, how the place had changed since I have been last but what I got excited about was the view from the new office space...

Breathtaking isn't it? Too bad I didn't get to snap the other side of the building overlooking the docks. That is a good one too.

From the island filled with skyscrapers, I changed two flights within the next 12 hours since I left the island of the lions to head up north west to another local sanctuary. 30 minutes drive and a boat ride later I arrived at Perhentian Islands....

Crystal clear waters.

My favourite.

Was there with friends for about 4 days. Taylor Swift's RED album on loop the whole time.

True - pure state of grace.

I came back with a super dark tan.

Thank heavens its not a burn.

Definitely recharged my batteries and ready for another challenging quarter. And a new semester....after all the drama last semester that has almost driven me to a nervous wreck.


Can't wait till September. *grin!!!!!*
