I just need a spoon

I like to brew my hot drinks in the office pantry. So I have my own mug and teaspoon. But I've lost my teaspoon once when I left the spoon and the mug to dry near the sink. It was a plain spoon, so people might have thought the spoon is for common use.(*^&%^@
So I bought another spoon from Daiso, a special spoon with a smiley face at its handle.
Something like this
Hoping that people would hesitate to  use it, seeing it is special spoon so it must belong to somebody. Right? Wrrrronngggg...my smiley spoon was lost too, never seen again in the pantry. %#$*(&*%$
Then I bought another spoon. Still trying to make it a special spoon so that people will not simply use it. Definitely looks different, brown colour with clear grain. Different texture. I was feeling a bit smart.

Until I put it in the mug full with water.
It floats....I was feeling smart before, but when the spoon floats....definitely not feeling smart lah kan

The spoon now sits in a different mug.
Pakai je laaa disposable spoon....
Disposal spoon pun ringan jugak, tapi takde lah float...

OMG....! Extended Maternity Leave

Found out today that the company that I work for, has revised some of the leave policies.
One of them is the maternity leave policy. Extended maternity leave...warghh!! Bestnya...bestnya!
Wuih..rasa macam nak menari2 je baca that intranet announcement.

I am sooo glad with the additional 30 days maternity leave, on half pay pun kira ok what. Previously, I've always topped up my 60 days maternity leave with annual leave, just to get roughly 3 months maternity. Time2 tu, berangan je laaa nak dapat longer maternity leave. But it's happening...yeyyy. At least those mommies can have more quality time with their newborn. Penting tu. Bak kata one of the juniors, 'Let's get pregnant!' Hahahaha.
Takde la pun nak get pregnant kan. Umur pun dah masuk 4series. But it's a good indicator that company is adapting and getting more flexible. Cue : Work from home option ke, Part-time employment ke, Compressed hours and less days per week ke. Doa je laaa.
The other two revision (fexible leave & compassionate leave) pun very useful. Although I think the compassionate leave tu...errr...2 hari je? Tapi tak pe lah, kecil tapak tangan, nyiru kami tadahkan. Kena bersyukur.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Cool Morning, Cool Clouds

Went for a morning brisk walk yesterday. It was not so sunny, overcast by white clouds. Was a bit quiet, ramai orang bangun lambat kut, taking advantage of the public holiday.

And the clouds were something else.

Selalunya kalau berlari/ berjalan, dok pandang depan or tgk slightly downward. Not this time.

Macam tak real je...hahaha
