Robotic People

Do you like people who love to stick to routines? I came across people who are so routines and refuse changes to anything and everything.

To be honest, they drive me mad! Especially when I have to work with these people! They don’t like changes, so don’t ever expect them to go out of their way to help you even when they are ‘suppose’ to help you.

They can be very petty as well, question you every single time you take a pen from the stationary; get extremely annoyed if you take a day off and do not let them know; get VERY upset if they do not know things that you know about the company.

These people have no lives, they get so worked up with the tiniest bit of thing. Sometimes, I feel like telling them “Fuck off and get a life”.

Blood Type A

Recently, a friend of mine is crazy over blood type personality, A, B, O and AB. So she's been telling me a lot about the different personalities.

I find them pretty relevant and somehow true, hahaha... I am a typical type A and she is a typical O.

This was what I found about type A, here

Blood Type A - Tend to be cooperative, sensitive, clever, passionate and smart. Often bottling up anxiety in order to get along with others, they may hold in their emotions until they explode. Many are tense, impatient and unable to sleep well. While they are capable of leadership positions, they may not take them because the stress is not good for their tightly wired systems. They are perfectionists to say the least.

Blood type A's tend to have more sensitive constitutions. Too much stress weakens their immunity more quickly than other blood types. Low stomach acid is common among blood type A's even from birth, so special care should be taken when eating animal proteins.

AND here

Type A
People with blood type A have a deep-rooted strength that helps them stay calm in a crisis when everyone else is panicking. However, they tend to avoid confrontation, and feel very uncomfortable around people. A types are shy and sometimes withdrawn. They seek harmony and are very polite, but all the same feel that they never really fit in with others. A types are very responsible. If there is a job to be done, they prefer to take care of it themselves. These people crave success and are perfectionists. They are also very creative, and the most artistic of all the blood types, most likely because of their sensitivity.

I literally grew up with gastric, and it often trigger by emotions. I tend to get gastric when I am angry or upset. I usually get gastric when I quarrel with Matt :p and whenstupid customers ask me stupid questions.

However, I dont think I am shy nor withdrawn, though I am not very comfortable when I am around people that I hardly know.

The most accurate and relevant will be type A's are smart, and they will often wonder why some people can be so stupid and why would some people have no common sense at all! Yes, I do that all the time, always wonder what's wrong with some people, people who do not use their brains at the right time and people who do not go out of their comfort zone.

A very good example will be drivers who drive at 80km/h on the right lane of a freeway, which the speed limit is 100km/h. I would curse and yell behind the wheel, then over take them and give them a middle finger. Ok ok... exagerate here, I dont give them middle finger but if I could kill them with my eyes, there would be a lot of dead drivers on the freeway now. Then I will say "These people have no f**king common sense!".

I pray everyday now to keep stupid people and people without common sense out of my way, in case I get high bllod pressure soon.

Ice Cream

Does anyone of you eat ice-cream as dinner? Or it is only me that will do that? I am the type of person who wouldn’t mind eating snack for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Sometimes, I will just have ice-cream for dinner, or yogurt or a slice of cake.

Matt always asks me “what do you have for dinner?”, if I answer anything other than a ‘normal’ meal, he will say “you can’t have that for dinner!” “Why not?” “Because….”. To me, if it makes me feel full, then it is fine. :p

Am I the only person that does that? I would really like to know.

It can be due to my upbringing; my mom let me eat ice cream for dinner sometimes, she thinks ice-cream is made of milk, thus high in protein so I can eat ice-cream if I want to. If we happen to go to Pasar Malam (night market with many food, clothes, shoes, toys stalls and etc.), mom would buy me some cake, and I would have cake for breakfast the next day. My mom was the type of parent that let me eat anything that’s not ‘unhealthy’ (mainly deep fry, greasy food) as long as I am eating, and never had problem with me skipping a meal because I had too much to eat the meal before. Ha ha

I just had half a slice of cake this morning before I left for work :p

My Birthday

I felt so loved and super sweet this birthday; not because I got some superb presents, nor big bash celebration, but Matt was able to celebrate with me. We spent the day eating bbq seafood in Fremantle and visited the zoo for a few hours.

My manager's daughters dropped by at the office on Thursday to give me these lovely flowers. I always babysit them when they have to come in to work with their dad. :p We make paper dolls, paper craft, drawing together. These girls are very adorable and pretty!

Matt picked me up with these beautiful roses, I did not tell him that yellow roses symbolises break ups, new beginning. I did a quick google on roses colours, every website has slightly different meaning. Some say 'new beginning', some say 'warmth, joyful, friendship' . Haha... none of them was about LOVE! Matt said the florist told him yellow roses are appropriate, I wonder what he said to the florist :p Poor baby got scammed! Is ok, I am happy with any roses, as long as they are not black :p

The weather was beautiful, soothing breeze and slightly cloudy but fine. We walked around the zoo, trying to burn off all the calories we took in from the seafood feast; Matt explained all the animals features and characteristics to me, thanks to National Geographic and Discovery Channels on Foxtel :p

I wanted to watch the elephant demonstration (I don't know why but I always LOVE elephant show, they just look so cute and clumsy). Unfortunately, due to the Red Bull Air Race practice at South Perth foreshore, the noise was so loud that the elephants were very distressed. Thus the trainer had to spend a few minutes to calm them down, kept talking to them and patting their bums (We were trying to figure out why did the trainer keep patting and scratching the elephants' bums). The elephants finally settled down and demonstrated a few tricks. The elephant that was performing, 'Permai' was only a young female elephant. Apparently they do not train male elephant as male elephants are difficult to train and can be very agressive.

We called it a day after the trip to the Zoo as Matt was feeling sick from the flight the night before, thus we agreed to have my birthday dinner on Saturday night instead. :p

Then on Saturday night, Matt asked me to decide a place to have my birthday dinner. I was craving for Korean BBQ, so I suggested Seoul Korean in Northbridge, I really liked their marinated meat. More about the restaurant will be on my food blog.

My birthday celebration wasn't grand nor expensive, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was swamped by birthday wishes and a birthday song all the way from Singapore, a rather interesting birthday present from Adelaide, and most importantly... Matt was here with me!

Thank you very much everyone!
