    under arm burn.... burn... burning... motherfuckin burn...!

    shaved.. or rather trimmed the pubes off my under arms today.. the electric shaver got a lil nasty or i have real freakin sensitive skin... resulting in a very unpleasant burn now...

    its always been a while iniit... seems like a premium innit readin something from paradoxx... seriously i miss writing.. not so much the ranting but the writing... life is such a square here... sleep is a premium... spend so much valuable time on the train.. standing mostly! sometime when you get a place to sit, you feel so blessed its like winning a lottery................... i miss my car!
    I spend much more time and money traveling to and from work now... i got a promotion of sorts... after six months in the same place... always ranting bout how much i wanted to get out.. needed a change and all that shit... i finally got transfered out, VERY UNEXPECTEDLY! when i received that faithful email.. i nearly had a mental breakdown and died there and then itself... i shit you not...
    i got transfered to the top 3 store in singapore... still in the east though... pretty good you say.... what freaked me out was this store is like a freakin warehouse... in march their stock level was a million sing dollars... one million freakin sing dollars! i was in disbelieve... imagine keeping track of everything... selling everything fast... preparing space for new stock.. selling more stuff... and the freakin monthly stock take.... i was totally depressed for 2 days... everyone saw it in my face and heard it in my voice... as much as i wanted to move out from the old place... i realized how comfortable i was with that store... how it felt like home... all the changed i made... how i maintained it... built relationships with customers... i was actually not prepared to leave...

    i eventually warmed up to the fact that i had to move... and its actually not a bad thing... kept telling myself its a make or break scenario.... either i do real good here and set myself up for a bigger promotion or i fuck up real huge and see what happens.. being told that its an honour taking care of one of the top 3 store... im entrusted with the responsibility of a top 3 store only after 6 months.... gotta admit it was kinda ego boosting...
    its been 2 weeks now at this new place... getting used to it... almost familiar with the stock.... still totally unfamiliar with the crowd... its so fucking erratic.. after everything i've heard and is expected of this place... im dumbfounded... the crowd has been lame ass pathetic... havent been able to hit daily targets... i've been trying to create a buzz... moving stuff around.. but it hasnt been doing wonders.. the store looks sad... oh! i didnt mention this new place is also a value store... a very sad looking one...! my old place didnt look too much like a value store, the was some pizzas to it... looking at our competitor right beside me at the new place i feel like weeping or bursting out in laughter seeing my store...
    so yea back to having to travel and spend more... although still in the east.. on paper bedok is nearer than tampines... but theres no express bus to bedok from my place.. fuckin bus takes one freakin hour... and is not always on time! so i take the train.. its a lot more efficient.. i still havta change trains half way thru but it only takes me 45 mins.... the things you gotta do to get paid...!

    pretty peaceful day off today... no meetings... not too many phone calls... got to sleep in... watch the tele... bum around... visited my stylist.. Doreen's the bomb! she always.. always styles my hair the best... she even mixed a kick ass brown for my hair... just the way i wanted it... love her!
    of course i couldnt stay home all day... headed out to orchard earlier... was looking for new pair of shoes... dont ask why! had 2 options in mind... another pair of low cut pony's and nike cortez' nylons.... the nylons are a hard ass bunch to acquire... the pony's are always available... somehow held back in anticipation for better bargains next weeks what with the great singapore sale starting and all...
    Visited borders... last book from borders was almost a year ago...

    got Bourdain's The Nasty Bits... yeah, you know i love reading Bourdain... seriously im a non-fiction kinda guy... the apple center was nearby so a browsing i went...

    came out with some funky cool earphone pads... something i really needed cause the earphones keep popping out every time i run... im aware i dont do that often anyway.. yellow and purple are cool.. so shut up wankers... ! i sound so like XX .... damn!

    speakin of the devil...
    XX rolled into my tampines store sometime last month... on polka dotted heels... those babies where a good few inches high...! surprised she could walk on those... as i recall.... it was a busy day... i wasnt too happy... was opening cartons and trowing stock into the wagons... she walked in.. browsed thru and walked off.. i wasnt too sure if it was her at first... but i didnt care much either.. remember i wasnt too chirpy that day... few days later saw the same person with a caucasian dude and i pretty well knew it was her... she's pretty down to earth in public, so i dont know what the big deal's all bout... now if May and Choy would have walked into my store i would have dropped that carton and things would have turned out differently :)

    aight... its getting late... i havta go dispose that pile of trash and hit the sack... being all positive for a good day tomorrow...

    cheerio wankers!
