Today, I missed a meeting that I was supposed to attend at the Ministry. The memo was just not in my pigeon hole the last time I checked it at noon. I only found out about it a few hours ago from Salwa. HL did text me about the meeting but since I haven't gone to the DST counter to pay my bills - yes, I haven't got the time to do so - so all texts sent to my prima line apparently do not appear in the inbox. The fax? It's not the first time this happens. Many times my colleagues complained about the delay of the memos they received. Thanks to our clerks! HL understood my situation. After all, she was my head before so when this happens, she'd comment, "Oh, biasa lah!" Yes, it's that bad! Grrr!!
What upset me again today was when I was assigned to be an MC for an up-coming meeting. It's upsetting cause the person who should do the part is going to do something which .. I dunno! The whole assigning parts for the conference was just .. ODD! I burst, the 2nd time this week! I just can't take the pressure anymore! Even so, another report should be done a.s.a.p. - a departmental achievements so far. What makes it more and more annoying was, I do not have the details of all the staff's courses or conferences that they have attended. Why? Cause I am NOT The HoD! Enough said!
Yesterday after the HoDs meeting, Leng and I felt so tired with all the info from the boss, also with more and more workloads, so we decided to have a quick drink. At Cherry Cafe, I had my late lunch, Leng had her tea and bread. It felt so good to finally sit back and relax, though it was only for a while. Then again, we couldn't escape from talking about work. And of course the pressure we're facing at the mo. It's just so bad this year that we went silent in the end. Words couldn't describe how stressful we are .. Sigh~
I just got back from a dine out with my sayang. For a moment there, I felt at ease. I didn't whine at him cause obviously, he's tired from work as well. We had our dinner quietly while watching the American Idol 8 selection show. Thank God Twelv has that comforting sofa so it felt like watching TV at home. He's working tomorrow and it's gonna be a long journey to KB. Yet, he didn't mind spending the time with me. He's my sweetest! The sugar for my tea, the honey for my waffle :) Thanks sayang..
Owh, we also went out last night, to the movie, FINALLY! He passed his induction - he got 70% for the test yeay! - so he treated me to the movie. We watched "Inkheart". Though we were 10 minutes late, we enjoyed the movie. We left with red eyes, both tired and sleepy.
And I'm sleepy now. Good night sayang ...
