What time of the Day r u

You Are Sunrise

You enjoy living a slow, fulfilling life. You enjoy living every moment, no matter how ordinary.
You are a person of reflection and meditation. You start and end every day by looking inward.
Caring and giving, you enjoy making people happy. You're often cooking for friends or buying them gifts.
All in all, you know how to love life for what it is - not for how it should be.

New Updates

There are several things that crop up recently, lemme highlight them according to the degree in which I am affected.

1) Boost of Civil Service Pay

Its a little confusing given that I am new to the scheme. But it seems i am to expect a 10% salary hike( "Lao Jiaos" get 16% for their performance components) . Haha this will put me closer to the private sector. It reallie puts me off at times to know that certain sectors in the economy (do some research and u will know), get so much more $ that the rest. In fact, one can say that civil servants were penalised for choosing a career that contributes to the society as a whole. Haha now the gap narrows. I know that there are issues regarding the ministers' pay but I decide that I am not in a gd position(in terms of knowledge) to comment on them.

2) The recent Edward 30% off thingy.

I profited from it by buying 5 Spiders and 6 Scorpions. Unfortunately the Immolator and the manflayers r not in supply. I am still looking for cheaper parts especially w regards to the immo. Let's look at some numbers

Serene/Comics mart --> $60 expected
UK --> immolator 20 pds = $59 (may as well as from SG since i have nt include shipment but they also sell a box of mengil at same price hmmm), exorcist spare parts cost 22pds(more expensive than an entire exorcist!!!)
US --> Entire SoB Exorcist cost US$50 plus shipment = $109...seems a lot cheaper in my opinion. PURCHASE

3) Exams coming (usual but it affects my wrk I muz pia)

4) None of my coms can play CoH

5) There is a new wave of environmental disasters going on, but the short sighted media did not really comment much about it. FOOLS!!! I will try to get more info. Mabbe frm foreign newspapers or something

6) A- for my Essay on Japanese Colonial Policy :) [I survived!]
