The long and short about I’m Late

And so I finally made myself dial her numbers after hesitating for so long.

I heard a voice but it’s not hers.

It informs me that the numbers I dialed are not longer in use.


It’s better to be late than never, but when you’re late, things may be too late to change.

I’m really sorry for the spate of sad entries recently. I know you guys are here to have a laugh or two, so I will try my best to make my next entry a happier one. And thanks for all your nice birthday wishes! I promise I will write something soon.

I will try not to be late this time.

With Love,
Sibeh Sian

The long and short about My Birthday

Hello everyone! Sorry for not blogging much recently, but I’ve been feeling kind of depressed recently. As of today, I am officially a 29 year old virgin :(

I didn’t want to spend my birthday all alone, so I asked Nerd a week back if he was free to come over for some Wii action tonight. And walau, he said he wasn’t because his KFC Girl has booked him for some stuff already. I hate to say this, but I really haven’t been hanging out with Nerd much ever since he got together with his beloved KFC Girl. I find it hard to blame him because if I have a Special Someone whom I can call my own, I will probably spend all my waking (and hopefully non-waking, heh) moments with her too. Oh well.

I was half hoping that maybe he or Office Bimbo will surprise me with a “HAPPY BIRTHDAY :)!” kind of thing today at the office, but that didn’t happen. So I took a half day off in the afternoon to cheer myself up. I think that was a bad decision because I wasted it by wondering aimlessly around at Funan looking at computer stuff which I can’t afford :(

I wanted to have a nice dinner at KFC, but decided to do a take-away instead because a kid was holding his birthday party there and the place was quite noisy. It was another bad decision because by the time I reach home the chicken was damn cold already. I tried to heat it up with my oven, but of all days it has to choose today to be spoilt. The coleslaw was a bit “chao seng” also :(

I played my Wii for a while but it didn’t feel that fun today, so I went to bed early. But after tossing and turning for hours I ended up sitting in front of my computer instead.

I wish I have the guts to call her, but I am a loser.

I wish you had a happy birthday, my Sushi Eating Friend.

With Love,
Sibeh Sian

The long and short about Faux Paus Of The Day #48976

Over dinner with a client just now:

Client: My hubby-to-be and I are almost done with our wedding preparations! All we are left with is to find a good solemniser and we’ll be done :)

Me: . . . .

Me: Pardon me, but why would you need a sodomiser for your wedding?!?!??!

There is no cure for stupidity :(

The long and short about I Am A Terrible, Terrible Boy

I have a terrible confession to make today.

I went for lunch just now, and as usual ordered from the Chinese Cooked Food Auntie. I was about to tuck into my meal happily when I noticed something different:

Instead of the usual three meatballs, I had four!

Being the greedy person I am, I ate that extra meatball happily without thinking twice about it. But I’m feeling terrible now because I didn’t pay the $0.30 that an extra meatball usually cost to the poor auntie, who might need it to support her family. What should I do now?!?!?!

I am a terrible, terrible boy :(!

With Love,
Sibeh Sian

The long and short about The Trip III

I’m finally back! Back to blogging that is, heh.

To make a long story short, the past week had been a hellish week at work. I have been staying in the office way past my working hours and managed to reach home only at around midnight. I have absolutely no idea why Ms Tan was so nasty to me because by all accounts, I took great care of her during our week-long trip to Adelaide.

The Plane Ride:
Although I don’t like Ms Tan, I feel a sense of responsibility towards her because I am the only Man in this two-man trip. So I took the safety video instructions very seriously when the other passengers were busy reading/eating/sleeping. I even tried on the safety vest, which I kind of regretted because the stewardess had to rescue me after I accidentally inflated the damn thing.

I knew it was not going to be a very fun trip because the only thing Ms Tan said to me throughout our ride was “Excuse me I need to go to the washroom.” I also think she’s on a diet because she refused supper, so I helped myself to her breasts. As in her portion of the grilled chicken breast, ahem.

The Hotel:
Horror of horrors, the apartment our Boss booked was fully booked, and there was no way we could switch to separate rooms. The only consolation was that it was two single beds instead of one Queen, heh.

I really pity Ms Tan’s future hubby because, my goodness, it was a pain in the ass sleeping with Ms Tan. The mad woman insisted on burning this weird smelling aroma therapy oil at night, and it drove me mad because I absolutely cannot stand aroma therapy. To make matters worse, I forgot to pack my 風油 and there was no way I could rid myself of the horrible headache.

The Socialising:
Our Aussie host was very nice and hospitable, and brought us to a very nice and filling breakfast the next day. He also asked me if I had a good night’s rest, which I unfortunately have to reply “No I didn’t because she was driving me crazy in bed with her oil and I forgot to bring mine.” There was an awkward silence after that until my host broke into a nervous laugh, which I have no idea why because I don’t find that funny. Ms Tan didn’t find that funny either because she looked very pissed.

I hate to say this, but there’s really nothing much to do in Adelaide. I think Ms Tan really enjoys the casino though, because she spends most of our free time at night there. Which was a good thing for me, because I could read the Playboy National Geographic I bought undisturbed :)

The Presentation:
Besides the site visits and socializing, the main reason why we were in Adelaide in the first place was to give this big-assed presentation to our very important Aussie partners.

I thus got the shock of my life when Ms Tan took out my Playboy magazine from her briefcase.

Ms Tan was equally shocked too, and that was when I realized I had mistakenly placed the slide handouts into my briefcase instead of hers, and left my Playboy in hers instead. But being the very Clever Boy I am, I rectified the awkward situation by shouting, “I bought donuts for everyone :)!”

The Plane Ride Home:
I accidentally inflated the damn life jacket again!

I think Ms Tan don’t like me very much.

With Love,
Sibeh Sian

The long and short about The Trip II


I’M BACK :D!!!!

Yes, I have somehow managed to survive a nightmarish 7-day trip with the nightmarish Ms Tan. And trust me, it was not a very pleasant experience. Just take this simple conversation I had with her while we were posing for a picture for an example:

Me: Ms Tan, I look nicer with my left profile or right profile in pictures huh?

Ms Tan: . . . .

Ms Tan: Your back profile looks nicest.

I rest my case.

More about my horrible experiences tomorrow.

With Love,
Sibeh Sian


Really paiseh to everyone! This was unexpected, but I was saddled with an incredible amount of work by Ms Tan ever since we came back from the trip. I would have thought she would be nicer to me after everything that we’ve been through together in Adelaide, but obviously I was wrong.

Then again, maybe it was precisely because of what we’ve been through together in Adelaide that she is so nasty. Heh.

More about my horrible experiences tomorrow maybe the day after tomorrow I promise some day after today :)

The long and short about The Trip

The Good News:
I can’t believe this!

The Boss just summoned me into his office just now. Office Bimbo was supposed to go on a working trip to Adelaide starting this evening, but she can’t make it at the very last minute. So I am going on the all-expenses paid ‘vacation’ with allowance instead :)

The Not-So-Good News:
I doubt I’ll be blogging for the rest of the week.

The Bad News:
Office Bimbo was supposed to go with Ms Tan. Meaning I will be going with Ms Tan instead. They were supposed to share a twin room, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed they have amended that arrangement :P

Wish me luck :D!

With Love,
Sibeh Sian

P.S. I am going home now to pack my Ling Ling :)
