Omg. It's been so long since I've last posted. Thanks to winstontlchow's constant nagging, I've decided to update (Update your livejournal! Fix your facebook profile!)! Let's see .. in the last 8 months I've graduated (YAY), (finally) gotten gainfully employed, got married, moved more than 10 000 (17 000 according to Krisflyer I think)  miles away from my beloved family and friends (and still trying to readjust), moved house twice (ok the first one was more of a hole than a house), bought two cars, had one car stolen (and found), amongst other stuff. We live in interesting times indeed and I don't even know where to start. 

Workwise, the learning curve is pretty steep as it's a whole new field for me, but it was exactly what I wanted, to learn something new, so I can't really complain there although it gets rather frustrating at times. Just spent a weekend in San Francisco  and although it was just 2.5 days, it was great (rainy) fun. After so long in spaced out Arizona, I finally got my fix of traipsing around in a big city, not to mention the eating (and eating and eating). It was also good to see delighttand  nilmandra again!  AAG 2008? Now I sound like a geographer. Anyway there's no way I can possibly update even 1 month's worth of happenings not to mention 8, plus pictures supposedly say more than words, so here are some photos of what's been going on the last 3 months(thanks again to riendeland nuanda77:)) ..

Yes! Except for the fruit, egg tart and bagel I think. And I think I'm always too busy telling you what I had/am going to have for dinner that I never got around to the bento box!

Well the cafeteria here closes at 2pm SHARP and driving out to get lunch (if you didn't have time to eat/get lunch from 11 to 2) is Such. A. Pain. And most people bring their own food also so it's not like I can ask someone to help me buy.

I'm trying to write more! Well, winston updates enough for the both of us I guess :)
