When I woke up this morning, I had a feeling that Francis would call off our lunch appointment and true enough, he did. Next, I SMS Choong Yong for lunch and he was on leave spending a day with his mother because today is her birthday. Getting desperate, I walked over to Arnaud’s workplace and he reluctantly rejected me because of prior arrangement with his friends. My subconscious mind told me to stop there and then so I did not ask Spenser, the guy who sits next to me and he always frowns. Fortunately I did not humiliate myself with the forth rejection because after I got back from my brief sandwich break, Spenser was still at his workplace planning to grab for a short lunch before heading off to somewhere.
In fact, I should have called Robert out for lunch. That would have solved my problem. I remembered him because he called me up after lunch while I was on my way to collect my car. Bad news. He has crashed his Lexus with guess what? Another Lexus. Poor guy. It is a brand new car. Accidents happen, for no reason. That is why it is called accident.

Two weeks in Hong Kong and that has been gone. Not exactly enjoyed for two weeks. Sick for a week and how does that count?
Jakarta (first impression) seems not as bad as I thought. Must be the ultra low expectation to begin with. The days are long and we shall see.
A faint sense of loneliness. A very familiar sense of loneliness. A different place (environment), a different job but same kind of feeling. Oh no, not to think about all these but to enjoy tomorrow while we can.
Bought a new novel called “High Fidelity”. In any case, I shall not buy any new book but this one was irresistible. Talking about girls dumping guys and all the sad love stories. Well, kind of suit the scene.
Saturday, woke up early in order to pack up for my US trip. Stepped out of the hotel after midday and took a taxi to CDG airport. And there I go, I have to fly again. Called up my family at the business lounge. Always nice to talk to family.
The flight was about eight hours. I still think that Singapore Airline is the best so far. As for the Air France business class, it was not at all that fantastic. Kind of a bit disappointed.
Today was pretty cloudy in US. So not a very nice day indeed. It was just as depressing as Europe. The funny thing is that I don’t really feel that much as compare to what I have imagined. This really puzzled me. Guess when one travel too frequent, everywhere is just the same.
Colin left me a message and when I knocked onto his room, he was not in. Kind of disappointed and as I have missed the dinner hour, I have to go to the Social Centre and had my pizza. By the way, the American beer – Honey Brown – is pretty good.
Left a message in Colin’s room and we met at the Social Centre. Throughout the night, he was very tired and we didn’t get to talk much.
Feeling kind of lonely. I miss JP again.
Monday. First day in the “new” office with two FX guys as Eric (the third one) is having a one week holiday. Pretty quiet and made a few phone calls. First one to UOB and finally found out that one of my card’s mailing address has not been changed. That is why. Second phone call to IRA and extended my deadline til June 27.
Francis called me up and I am sill very undecided about my future. As he said that I will “shine” if I stay with VTF. Oh god, really don’t know.
Nope, Mylene Farmer’s new concert album has not been out yet. Felt really lonely today. First, spent one hour at FNAC and went to a Tunisian Restaurant. What have I gained in Paris?
What a lonely day. Never felt that lonely before. Must have been got sick with all the excitement already.
Got up very late, as intended. My account is still unclear and unhealthy. It really worries me. Could have done a lot more before I left Singapore.
Today I wanted to do some shopping but not in the mood. In the end, I wandered into Marks & Spencer and bought myself one set of underwear and one very cute shirt. And then I saw some Modern Art (Jean Tinguely). Still not convince and understand why they call it art. I found all the art (old trash mechanical parts and motor and pulley and bell) very dark and if viewed alone, very scary.
French food and, too much wine again.
By the way, today I spent quite sometime in FNAC. I was watching a LD called Leon. Got to say that show is still my favorite. I really wanted to buy that LD. Leon was so, cool and I loved the small girl, Mathilda. She can really act. Say to say that they only played one side. I never got to see the ending.
