Law Enforcement Academy of Singapore (electrical)...
i'd like to pay a tribute to all my colleagues using the little time i have left before school starts.
to garry (my manager): the ultra rich guy who only ate a piece of so-called "premium" steak, 2 cuppucinos, 1 soup and 1 cup of ice-cream for his buffet. really can count them with my fingers. lots of money, a freak for cleanliness (there's always dust! no point wiping the shelves!!), a wise and sometimes silly even manager! he looks very cute when he laughs cos it's so kiddy, and his serious face doesn't always look all that serious to me. i will never forget the day i photostated 5 entire files for you, all the catalogues and such, and in the end the format was wrong (-_-`). hmmm. and stop telling me you got a lot of 'd's for your results (and d=distinction). *going crazy*
to hendrie (ex-assistant manager, now really manager since garry's gone): i really appreciate you trying to give me a full month's salary when i only worked for half a month and took so many leaves!! (oops i've just announced his good intentions) the funniest thing i remembered was that you told the tailor that your stomach has only gotten bigger since his last visit. and you're just about the only person who ever said thank you when i helped you do something, and commented the clothes i was surfing on the auctions are rather nice (i'm guilty as charged). and you practically bounced around when you got the internet up and and running, the look of triumph!!
to han (very senior engineer, soon-to-be-manager): i can'[t stand your alcohol breath and smokes!! (always kena niao-ed by me for smoking while door is opened) a very tall and stout guy who laughs like a kid (d'ya realise all my colleagues are very kiddy...) for a man like himself. likes to tease hazel and order her around, while being ordered by garry around. went shopping with garry and bought an apple notebook on impulse. only websites he surf is hardwarezone to look for new and more powerful handphones (changed about 5times in a week once - i had the shock of my life). loves his wife and bought her a 3g phone to see her while talking to her (hmmm but your own handphone's not 3g le...).
to richard (senior engineer): i know you're gonna get married and don't have money to treat us, as you have been oweing shirleen and everyone treats since don't know how many years ago. the name richard always reminds me of a doctor's name, and you look like you should have been one! hope you enjoy playing (and selling) all the games you leeched from me, and happy auctioning your phones + creating lots of ids to boost your own rating *hurhurhur* the only job you ever gave was handing up daily reports, and it was so funny seeing you with your 'bird nest' hair in various styles shouting at everyone to hand up their daily report ("ALBERT, WHERE'S YOUR DAILY REPORT!?!"), and scolding the banglas!! oh and he's the only one who drives a car to work.
to edy (just promoted engineer): what is it with you and my dates, and being too humble?? this guy wears specs and has 1dimple, so ideal for me but is attached (hoho just kidding alright don't get too high). too afraid to let everyone know the buffet he treated us yesterday costs almost $300++ (maybe more). a guy too generous and always speak in his soft indonesian drawl. he can take 1minute to think of what he's gonna say next ("ni de na ke... ah... errr... *scratches head* -5minutes past - aiyah...") i'm glad your sms has gotten a big longer than 2letters per sms since december ("i c."). a patient and mr. nice guy. lucky girlfriend! haha.
to jack (freshie engineer): a guy who loves jay chou and claims he looks like tidus. sloppy in appearance, he's always full of confidence and likes to chui niu ("wo tai you qian le"). the typical ah-beng sprinkled around singapore. haha. and i like your small little car which you used to drive me home with, i'll miss that one much. (he smses ,like this .no idea why .) remember when you tried to meet up for your monitor and we got lost while on the way home... *diaong* and when you reached marsiling only to realise the $355 zodiac package is a cheaterbug store! and you kept bargaining with me over my compaq laptop, and ended up configuring a desktop yourself. one horrible guy!! another thing i'll never understand about him is why he's only about as tall as me when he's a basketball player. hoho ;p
to albert (very busy engineer): bird bird!! he's the clown of our team!! and mr. bottomless pit also. he was serving everyone at the buffet yesterday with "self-made" rojak and duck noodles. i only just discovered he likes fishing. albert really looks like my grandmother, and he has 2dimples! what a cute uncle. although he's 40+, he acts like a little kid with all his lame jokes and antics. the only thing he'd lament about me leaving is... "who'll help me do material orders?!" trying to pick up computer skills by typing but always give up in the end and look for me. albert has learnt to be punctual and i always kena niao-ed for being 5-10mins late (cos i'm the second to reach office after him so he doesn't bother with the rest later). a take-charge person seen scurrying around during our shifting of office! albert owns a highly transportable lorry. hoho.
to yip (quiet engineer): yip always buy treats for us, curry puffs and what-nots. a very very quiet and shy guy who's in his forties and almost died of embarrassment when i first came in and called him 'uncle yip'. he's so quiet that sometimes when he sits beside me during my bus trips, i only realised his presence when we got off the same station! (too absorbed in my zodiac) always the "new guy" around cos he was transferred to another department and came back again, and re-introduced himself as 'new-bird' (to niao albert). i'm always shocked when he shouts at his workers though! i'm looking forward to the treat you're giving this wednesday! (although many are doubting whether you'll really be treating haha)
to bong ("starters (status)" draftsman): a down-to-earth and quiet guy who sits in the corner (in the centre now) peacefully doing his drafting. only recently he began to ask me to do some stuff for him and i had a haaaard time understanding his indonesian accent, what with pronouncing status as starters, and level as labour. even hendrie teased him about it! poor guy. a hardworking and grandfatherly like uncle. i think i always get frustrated when you tried to tell me something and i don't understand, and i need my aunt to translate english to me!! aiyoh... bong, ya gotta work harder on speaking to everyone. ;p
to hazel (only female engineer): only got to know you better near the end. i still can't forget how you dirtied your butt when you fell yesterday! everyone was rolling on the floor laughing about it. hope you won't have too much trouble taking over my admin stuff cos i heard you absolutely hated admin works, and now as the only female around, they'd assume you'd take over my job. hee. i infected her with my auctions fever also! i think everyone who's ever been an admin at LEAS electrical will definitely learn to yahoo auctions... (shirleen taught me and i taught mandy, now hazel also). and you will get used to everyone calling you "hei se" (black colour). hoho.
and that's all... hope i haven't missed out anyone... love you all and i will miss everyone once LEAS project ends. cos everyone will be separated le...
