no, not the movie that i have been waiting for.

there has been a major email server breakdown today. i thought, oh well, it's another usual stupid glitch... shud be ok when i get home. i really need to get my emails and send the ones queuing up in the outbox. but hey, when finally i got the "connected" sign i got this email from the ever "friendly" Mr. *** Helpdesk.

Dear Mr/Mrs. Citykoos,

Please be informed that we are currently experiencing power fluctuation issue at our Data Center which resulted in unavailability and/or intermittent connection to the *** e-mail services.

We are currently facing certain issues with regards to users accessing Exchange Server. To ensure business continuity for the users in terms of messaging, the following will be performed :

1. Create blank mailboxes
To ensure that *** users will still be able to send and receive emails, a blank mailbox will be created. For those impacted users, you will see that your mailbox is temporarily empty with no previous emails.

2. Merge Previous Emails
Progressively, these affected mailboxes will be merged with the restored copy for resumption of previous emails. This may take up to 3 to 4 days of restoration time.

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused and we thank you for your patience.

*** Helpdesk

u mean i will not be able to get one month worth of previous emails for THREE or FOUR days??? most of which has tres tres important documents that i have not saved and will definitely need them before the tres tres important meeting!!!

UURRRGGGHHH!!!!!!! i am doomed.

i was driving..

..home just now and i saw this blocking my way. jeez..

the makcik who was driving the mini van kept her head turned sideways so that i wont get her face.

and the kids in side the mini-bus began posing once they realize i was taking their picture.

one was even trying to stick his head out of the tiny bars guarding the window.

hulk and stark?

we just saw this.

a standard comic-issue movie, i have to say.. but much better than the last movie we saw.
and i cant wait for the sequel coz the tikus suspect it wud involve the yummilicious owner of the Stark industries aka ironman.. emmm..

not again..

the tikus woke up early today.. yes, for a change..

but as soon as she woke up, she noticed something. her throat ached, her nose snotty, and her head throbbed.

oh no, not the flu again.

the tikus has two presentation packs and one paper to finish up today, thus, the waking up early, and she cannot afford to be sick, AGAIN.

we went to watch this just now..
please, please, pleeeease dont bother watching it, EVER! its so lame, so very badly scripted, sooo disappointing.

na-ah, the Happening is just NOT happening.

what la..

ok, i just have to publish this. taken from Lucky No 7 blog.

sayang said she looked like siput babi..


i wonder if its her own "bright" idea or was she being "sabotaged" by her fashion stylist. well, assuming she has one.

do u know...

.. that the staff of the Co, yes, us mere mortals, DO NOT get fuel vouchers or coupons or discount whatsoever.

we dont.

so stop asking if we do, and stop blaming us for the fuel price increase.. jeez.

do u know that the Co cant even reward its employees properly "coz nanti the G bising?"


i thank god i did not vote and i do not see myself voting in any near future.

trying harder..

last nite i went to meet up with yus and EE at the curve. both were good frens from college in the coldest (or maybe 2nd coldest?) city in the States.

i havent seen yus since.. since she taught at MMU and that was like before i got married.. quite a funny "incident" then i must say, driving over all the way to cyberjaya for toot!! and i havent seen EE since.. oh! since i terserempak with her at puduraya like 5 years ago maybe.. i really wish we do this meet-ups more often and not just when frens from overseas come home for holidays. but then again, its easier said than done.

but i realised that as we grow older, friends are harder to find than before. and what little number we have now, we should keep dear.

so, now, the tikus will try harder to make an effort to arrange for these little meet-ups. and yes, of course, it has to be on that side of town since ALL of u peeps live over there.. sigh.. the tikus has yet to convince her cencorot to buy a hse over there.. too far from cencorot's work place..

day maid service

i am looking for day maid service.

yes, finally, i gave up feeling embarassed and admit that i do not have time to clean my house. i need a day maid. jeez, this is like acoholic anonymous confession!

so, i searched through the internet today and found only two companies: RUCleaning and PT Maids. i have no idea of their level of services but RUCleaning looks quite establish.. yes, yes, i say this because they have their own website and all while PT Maids only advertise in one of the advertising portals.

i will be calling both of them to get a quotation. if u peeps out there have contacts for part time /day maids to clean house, wipe furnitures, sparkle my bathrooms and mop floor, please please tell me k... they do not need to iron clothes, i've outsourced that as well. JEEZ!! hopeless betul!!

That's what friends are for..

many congrats on kokes' wedding.. all the best wishes for u and hubby, beb..
and something i just have to copy from your blog..

That's what friends are for

And I never thought I'd feel this way
And as far as I'm concerned
I'm glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you

And if I should ever go away
Well, then close your eyes and try to feel
The way we do today
And then if you can remember

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

Well, you came and opened me
And now there's so much more I see
And so by the way I thank you

And then for the times when we're apart
Well, then close your eyes and know
These words are comin' from my heart
And then if you can remember, oh

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, oh, for sure
'Cause I tell you that's what friends are for
For good times and for bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

i am...

... sooo bad..

i found this website, courtesy of Dhaney, and now i have zillions of ebooks, all for free!!! all sorts of ebooks ur heart desires...

sigh.. it's a bookworm's heaven.. i think i have to go get new SD card.. this one almost full!

and yes, the tikus will be snuggling on the Red with her PDA and her selimut busuk and all her new books to read this long weekend..


..its up again!

i cant believe it.. its blardy RM2.70/liter now!! urrggh.. i was on MC when they announced the news, well, when sayang called me up and announced the news. and this is at 5pm.. i kept thinking, shit, my tank's almost empty. i shud at least try to fill up.

so i went out, took the back alley to bypass the jam and to the nearby Co petrol kiosk. strange, the back alley was JAM!! uurrgghh!!! i thot nemind, i made a u-turn and tried the kosas petro kiosk.. the line was up to the junction like two blocks away!! ooooh... no wonder.. evidently everyone is filling up their last liters of RM1.92/liter fuel! shucks...

nemind, made another u-turn, braced myself into the dreaded jalan ampang. there's at least 3 petrol kiosk before ampang point. passed one, FULL will cars, passed another one, also FULL. by then i got fed-up. i am wasting wats left of my fuel crawling around in the jam trying to find fuel which i dont necessarily need until tomorrow.

F*** IT! i can afford the extra 35 bucks, what i cant afford is losing my sanity in the stupid traffic jam!
