I Ramble: 19 September 2017

In the name of Allah, the All-Compassionate, the All-Merciful.


I created a list of the six items I wanted to do yesterday.

But I managed to do none of those.

Nope it ain’t your typical “not enough time” excuse.

I decided to accompany my colleague, Reena, to Changi Airport on a whim. She was heading back to her kampung via flight and even brought her luggage with her to work.

And I thought, why not send her off since I was having my period so I don’t have to worry about praying.

And so there we were two girls squeezing into the fully-packed MRT with a thankfully small luggage. By right we shouldn’t be able to get in but me being me, I just shoved the fellas in front of me and grabbed hold of her luggage and just squeezed in as much as I could so she could have room to get in as well.

Mission was successful!

She thought her flight was at 8.30pm but it turned out that it was at 9.30pm. So that meant we had enough time for dinner together, hooray!

And to think that earlier during the day, we had lunch outside of our workplace together! It was definitely meant to be! Hehe.

I did a lot of heavy lifting as well during work and almost fell down the escalator trying to bring down a heavy container of leggings pants.

And the gantry doors of the mrt ez-link tap-in/out closed in hard on me. Ouchies.

I spent a good deal of time sharing with le fiance about my eventful day and fell asleep on the bed after washing my uniform.

I woke up at 6 plus but was too knackered to move before being knocked out cold again until 8am.

Good thing I decided to get my ass off by then because I had completely forgotten to hang my uniform dry last night. >.<

So here I am in the MRT with thankfully dry and ironed clothes and I even had time to pack food to bring to work.

Alhamdulillah for that.

My only frustration right now is that I left the house at 11am but my bus only arrived at 11.13am. And now I’m standing in the MRT like since when so many people travel at this hour? Ugh. And it had to be the kind with no seats.

Like why make me stand a long way from Tampines to City Hall when I will be standing throughout my working hours.

So based on that, today will be an okay day, I feel. Will be a few hiccups here and there but as long as I am patient, it will be a manageable day.

So hopefully tonight I can get started on my to-do list. Plus I’m working at 1.30pm tomorrow instead of 12.30pm. So I’m good.

I hope I won’t be the main cashier today. Cashier support is fine by me but I don’t feel up to being the main cashier today. Although I must admit that the nice thing about cashiering duties is that time flies by like nobody’s business. Hahahaha!

We’ll see what I get today. Hopefully a nice schedule.

Anyway, you guys, have a great day ahead.

And Allah is Al-Jalil, the Majestic. – MM
