Happy Wedding Anniversary

Happy anniversary, my love:

After all these years, my lover still!

Perhaps we've come this far by force of will;

Perhaps by what sweet winds within us move.

Years alone do not decisive prove,

As time's a box that holds both good and ill;

Nor can one long be loving without skill;

Nor long be cool below and warm above.

In you I've found a shoreline for my seaVast enough to hold me in its arms,

Embracing both the turbulence and deep,

Reconciling me to limitation.

So may you find a wilderness in me,

A place of windswept waves and rippled calms,

Restoring you to realms you cannot reap,

Yielding neither home nor destination.

Taman Rekreasi Hutan Bukit Subok

The sign
Stairs going up
Stairs going down(still the same one's for going up,heheh)
Recreational area
View of Kg.Ayer

If you are tired of going to Tasek,may i recommend you Taman Rekreasi Hutan Simpan Bkt.Subok,an excellent place to exercise or even have a picnic,a recreational park which is unique,why?because you can have a very nice view of Kg.Ayer and Bandar Seri Begawan,from the top,it also have a route that you can walk through,it used to be wooden stairs and walkways and just recently after going there it is now concrete all the way.You might be wondering where this Recreational place is,well its actually located along Jalan Residency,that is the road that leads to Jalan Kota Batu,where the Museum is located.So guys if you wanna do a KNK,go and visit it,and don't forget to bring a bottle of water,you might need it.

It's that season again...

Gadong Night market
Durian Kuning
Durians again
Stalls selling foods
Durians again and again

Yes,its that season again,where the MRS will howl,growl to me,begging to bring her to search for that perfect Yellow durians,from Gadong night market to roadside stalls,she will insist on me to stop by those stalls or plead to me to buy those yellow durians.But hey,i love my wife so to satisfy her craving for those durians,i just have to fulfill her hunger for those yellow thingy.Now,let me talk about Gadong night stalls,it is located within the vicinity of Gadong wet market.At night the parking lot of the market are used by vendors to sell from freshly cooked food to veggies and fruits,it's a haven for food lovers here.My apology for the quality of the pics,i was just using my K800.

Company Policies

Got this from an email,thanks CPUL,just thought of sharing it with all of you out there.

Company Policy:> >> >Effective from September 2007

Dress Code
It is advised that you come to work dressed according to your salary. If we see you wearing Ferragamo shoes and carrying an LV bag, we assume you are doing well financially and therefore do not need a raise. If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you buy nicer clothes, and therefore you do not need a raise. If you dress just right, you are right where you need to be and therefore you do not need a raise

Sick Days
We will no longer accept a doctor's statement as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.

Personal Days
Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called Saturday & Sunday.

Bereavement Leave
This is no excuse for missing work. There is nothing you can do for dead friends, relatives or co-workers. Every effort should be made to have non-employees attend to the arrangements. In rare cases where employee involvement is necessary, the funeral should be scheduled in the late afternoon. We will be glad to allow you to work through your lunch hour and subsequently leave one hour early

Toilet Use
Entirely too much time is being spent in the toilet. There is now a strict three-minute time limit in the stalls. At the end of three minutes, an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, the stall door will open, and a picture will be taken. After your second offence, your picture will be posted on the company bulletin board under the "Chronic Offenders category". Anyone caught smiling in the picture will be sanctioned under the company's mental health policy

Lunch Break
Skinny people get 30 minutes for lunch, as they need to eat more, so that they can look healthy. Normal size people get 15 minutes for lunch to get a balanced meal to maintain their average figure. Chubby people get 5 minutes for lunch, because that's all the time needed to drink a Slim-Fast

Thank you for your loyalty to our company. We are here to provide a positive employment experience. Therefore, all questions, comments, concerns, complaints, frustrations, irritations, aggravations, insinuations, allegations, accusations, contemplations, consternation> >and input should be directed elsewhere
