Being seated right in front of your supervisor and around newbies does not help either. Your supervisor will definitely come to the nearest alley (myself) and the newbies who are much more comfortable asking questions with me (since the others are either too old or seated far away). That's beside the fact that I can't even sit down and do my paperwork in peace. Every now and then my phone rings non-stop from these bloody doctors. Gosh! If only I could bang my head on the desk out loud every now and then.
I feel like escaping to a whimsical and colourful land for these three months; bringing along my 'life gadgets' -- my iPhone, laptop, chargers... and if possible, my cable TV to watch my daily soaps. Heh!
Okay, enough with the randomness and my job rants... New iPhone!! No. I did not get a new iPhone. Took me days to finally decide. Initially, I thought there was only one version of iPhone releasing: iPhone 5C. But only a day before the announcement did I learnt that there were going to be two, 5C and 5S. Ha! I'm such a late bloomer. Thing is, I found that the features are only slightly different from my current iPhone 5.
So eventually, I only upgraded to iOS 7. But once iPhone 6 is out, I'll definitely be getting one. I need a bigger storage, and of course, a new number. I'm loving the iOS 7 though. Finally I get to block certain numbers from calling me. Hehe!

There are times where I get cropped mentions due to these bimbos who continued their Twitter conversation through incessant quoted RTs. The legitimate way of conversing in a group is simply mentioning your name on the back or the front of the tweet. You don't just leave and continue your tweets until they're automatically cropped out in the end. Stupid fucktarts!
Anyways, looks like my iPhone 5's storage is waning with every stuff I added in. I promised, the next iPhone I'll get will be one with the largest storage. Too bad iPhone 6 is a long way to go. Even the upcoming iPhone 5C has no official release date. But I guess, I will be getting this 5C version. I seriously need a bigger storage.

But even after facing shit at work every single day, I kept my loyalty for my favourite evening TV show on Channel V... Yup, 'Suvreen Guggal'. It's currently on its second season. Truth to be told, it's not as fun as the first season, but the story is still quite gripping. Even with the many new characters, the story is still engaging; unlike the previous show I was addicted to -- 'Humse Hai Liife'. That show precipitated ever since new strangers were roped in.
Unfortunately, none of the Indian channels produce DVD box sets of their popular TV shows. It tanks really. And seeing that my cable set-top box HDD only has a limited disk space, I had no choice but to delete the old episodes one by one. Hence currently I'm slowly re-recording all the episodes by editing and scraping off the ugly TV ads on my video editing software.
I only wish the channel would re-telecast the show from the first episode as soon as the show ends later. They are doing it for some of the old shows on the channel. The first 60 episodes of 'Suvreen Guggal' I have in hand are of awful quality since I had to download them through YouTube, and none of them are of HD quality. *pouts*
And oh! When's the next iPhone coming out again? Seriously, the next time I get a new iPhone, I'll get one with the biggest storage. My current 16GB iPhone 5 is now almost full since I kept storing loads and loads of videos... with high quality. Hehe! Yeah, I have been told, "Why don't you just move on to Samsung Galaxy?" ...Uh no! I'm a loyalist. I'll stick to my Apple iPhone, thank you very much!
By the way, I'd just updated my scrapbooking blog earlier today with a new page for Yuvreen. Quite liked how it looked like. I had initially wanted it to look all yellow, but ended up making it all colourful.

Anyway, the last Sims' household I created was what I've been planning to make for the past couple of weeks -- Suvreen Guggal's friends. Yeah. Haha! I already have Suvreen and her (now) husband, Yuvraj Singh staying in one house (with a female butler who for some reason walks around the house naked). And then there's Rehaan Charles and his nephew, Vivaan who live in another house.
But for a couple of days, I saved an empty house just in front of Suvreen's for her best friends -- Annie, Naro, Zorro, Rathi and Mannu. I tried my very level best to match the characters' faces with the real actors. Some were good, whilst some just reek... unfortunately. Click on the Sims' picture for a better full view.
Now you must be wondering, what about those two main characters -- Yuvraj and Suvreen? Honestly! I'm still so unsatisfied with the both of them that I don't think I will blog their Sim profiles until they look at least 90% accurate. Every single time I'm in the game, I will always try to improve their faces.
So I guess that's about my Sims characters. Coming to the general game, I've been facing some unfortunate bugs playing it ever since I downloaded a couple of custom mods. Some of my Sims have missing butlers and maids. And then of course, some of my Sims take showers with clothes on. It gets pretty frustrating. But the mods are so important that I don't have the heart to take them away.
The fact that I hire butlers for every single household... Ha! And 80% of all my Sims are jobless. Thanks to the 'motherlode' cheat code, all my Sims are living in luxury. Haha!

I've bought a new laptop to replace my quite recent one which was simply said -- jinxed. My previous laptop's screen cracked exactly 3 days after I purchased it due to my carelessness. Issh!! What a waste. As the crack worsen, I decided to finally get a brand new one entirely. The intention to bring it to its manufacturer to replace its broken screen has long been forsaken. It's too far away in Alexander.
The only main problem I'm facing right now with my new laptop is familiarizing with the new Windows 8. Gosh! Everything seems so jumbled up. At times, I couldn't even tell which programs were running in my background. Had to resign with the old CTRL+ALT+DEL.
Anyways, as I've made it apparent on my Twitter, I'm still rather addicted to this Hindi TV serial on Channel V India -- 'Suvreen Guggal'. It's been my obsession since mid-June last year. And I DO mean obsession. The main couple, Yuvraj Singh and Suvreen Guggal, lovingly known as 'Yuvreen' is all I can think about all day... every day!!
I'm happy that the show is finally reaching its 1 year anniversary this 19th March. Its first episode was aired on this day last year. I can't believe I used to scoff at the show during its first few months, only to find myself so attached to it 3 months later. Shameful, really! It's the best show so far on that channel.
Seriously, seriously hope that the makers will think of marketing DVD box sets of the whole complete episodes once the show's over. The fact that I'm dreading every single day that my cable set-top box will go haywire and all my recorded episodes will go, 'POOF'... Ugh! Seriously need to find a way to transfer them all somewhere safe; with the high quality intact. I'm actually thinking of getting a television with that USB recording feature thingy. My current LCD television is an old version. Think we got it back in 2006.
Oh! Well, I guess that's it for now. I'll be off playing my Sims 3 game with my Yuvraj and Suvreen Sims characters. Hehe! I already got them married in my game. By far the most romantic couple in my Sims town. They even initiated everything on their own. Ah! They've learnt well...

So far I'm digging the new iPhone. Although like I tweeted, a lot of the old apps need to be updated to suit the new tall screen. And that's aside, apparently many people are experiencing problems syncing their old music and videos from their iTunes library. I've tried everything and they still fail to sync. *sighs* I guess I'll just wait until Apple put up some step-by-step guide to overcome that problem.
I can't begin to tell you what's best about the iPhone, but yeah. The new panorama feature in the camera app is wicked. It's very user friendly as compared to those individual panorama apps you download on iStore. It'll even tell you to slow down if you moved your camera too quickly. Even the HDR feature is awesome. I now look at my old digi camera with a shame. Honestly, my iPhone 5 will be enough to shoot HD photos.

I guess there's no point in me reminiscing what has happened in the past five months. I guess my tweets would themselves give a real-time idea what was happening on a particular moment of my life.
As for now, I have a new obsession; a Hindi television serial on Channel V India -- 'Suvreen Guggal'. Seriously, I hate it when I get obsessed with a TV show (especially). It's like a whole new level of an idée fixe. You need to be devoted every single day to not miss a single episode. One of the reasons why I stayed away from watching 'GLEE'. I see what that show does to people. *chuckles*
'Suvreen Guggal' is about a small town girl trying to adjust herself in a big and modern city in India. But like any other stories out there, it's always the main couple that attracted me to the show. I have to point out though, I only got addicted to the serial 4 months after the show first premiered in March earlier this year. Luckily I have been following it quite closely ever since it started, but being obsessed is one thing. The show really picked up after the UST between the two main leads became more and more heated. And that's that! Even my Mummy dearest is addicted to the show. Haha!
Well, it's Shivin Narang's (the male lead actor) birthday this Tuesday. I'm pretty geared up to see some BTS snaps of his birthday party on the sets. Really love his on-screen chemistry with the female actress, Smriti Kalra (albeit the girl being 2 years older than him).
Unfortunately for Channel V serial fans, there are never any new episodes on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. So it's quite an effectuation for me that I'm now actually excited about Mondays. So yes! Definitely can't wait for the continuation episode tomorrow night!
Well anyways, fasting month is here for us Muslims. I'm actually still contemplating whether I want to bake some cookies and cakes for the upcoming Hari Raya. Two more weeks! Though I really want to make my traditional Cornflakes & Raisin cookies, but... Will I even have the time and energy to make some? Hmm... only time will tell.
