Saturday night rambling

It's 11.19pm, Saturday night. Believe it or not, NOW only I could get sometime alone for myself . The whole day was spent entertaining the little boy, grocery shopping, and the usual weekend stuff. Gosh... it's tiring. The boy has finally gone to sleep 15 minutes ago. Peace, at last..

I attended an ex-colleagues reunion this afternoon at Quality Hotel. These were my ex-officemates when I was attached to the Legal & Secretarial Unit , way back in 2000-02. I like to meet this lot (tho' it only happens once every two years maybe). We share a lot of things when we were working together under Mdm R*, who, to me, was a really mean boss. She's exactly like Merryl Streep in Devil Wears Prada. I'm not kidding.

Each one of us has an unforgettable/bitter experience with her, which made us all left the department eventually. The fact that her BIL owned the Company and her husband was the ED, made her think that she can do whatever she wants. She's the type who'd throw memos straight to your face and said things like, "What is this??!! Anak I boleh tulis lagi elok dari ni, tau??!!" (and her daughter was in Std 6 that time)

She'd also call you anytime of the day (day/night) and expect you to slave for her. She made each one of us cried because of her impossible demand and she made our lives miserable during that time. Anyway, I'm not in the mood to "kutuk" orang tonight. If you've watched Devil Wears Prada, she's just like that one. Enough said.

Tomorrow, we're having a birthday party for my little boy who'll turn 2 on Monday. I just hope everything will turn out ok. This is the first time I'm throwing a birthday party for MY OWN child; usually it's for other people's kids (you know what i mean). So, I'm kinda nervous. Will post the story on Monday.

Mrs Nordin, happy birthday to your little boy. In no time he will not be little anymore. My youngest is already a young man. How I miss that cuddly, chubby little boy. He still kisses my cheeks and cuddle up to me and I am okay with that.
Have fun on Monday.

Happy birthday to the little pengganas. Two is such a fun age - moving away from todlerhood into a young boy. I am sure the party will be great - enjoy yourself.

Dear Nizzar,

Happy 2nd Birthday! I'm sorry that I'm missing your birthday party again this year.

It's very sad when your mummy had almost always been to my children's birthday parties before, in fact she was the event co-ordinators for most of them! Wish I could have returned the favour..

Hope you will have a great day today. I'm sure you will though as your mummy is a great party planner!

Have fun, baby.
