A Bad Day and a Not so Bad Day!

I had a really miserable day yesterday. I had to go shopping for an interview outfit because every working attire in my wardrobe (and I have LOTS of clothes *weep*) couldn't fit. So, I had to go buy one quick coz the interview was this morning. Went to Compass Point at 7pm..Gah! It was horrible...most of the stuff on the rack didn't fit too...All the pants in Large were too tight yet too long, nothing seems to be in XL and everyone else in the shops seems to be asking for S sizes..Felt like Shrek for a while..And to think there was a time when I found Mphosis apparels in S too big for me! I finally found something that fitted reasonally well..it was a dress in XL *sigh*..Had no choice but to buy it coz it was like 9.30pm then and most of the shops have already closed and the sales girls were so patiently trying to get me something that fit. They would probably have stuck a needle into my bum if I'd left there w/out buying anything.

And throughout my disastrous shopping expedition, one thought keep popping into my mind - "Mus exercise, must diet..!!" For the sake of my bank account and the numerous threads in my wardrobe, I'd better shed some flab soon!


And yes..my interview..Well, it's now coming to that time when I have to decide whether to go back to work or stay on as a SAHM...I decided to let fate decide and see if I could even get a job since the job market is so bleak and pathetic..I'd sent out at least 10 applications 2 weeks ago via jobsdb.com and only received 1 call back for an interview..It's with Eng Wah Organisation for the position of Marketing Communication Mgr..Wasn't really surprised that I was shortlisted for an interview because of my previous working background in the media industry.

The interview went okay..I'm usually pretty good at interviews..but after the interview, the HR lady told me that applicants had to do 2 tasks on the spot..Write a reply to a complaint letter from an irate cinema viewer and do a short writeup on a company sales brochure...My mind was blank for the longest time and just managed to scribble some nonsense and submitted it. Doubt I'll get a call back..:P..

But the HR manager made my day..Before she left the room, she told me
"You look really good for someone who had a baby not long ago!!" heee~

Post-note : During lunch, I told hubby about ze compliment the HR lady paid me..
He : So, is she bigger sized and fatter than u?
Me : errr..yeah!
He : That's why!!
*kbish hubby*


Watz cha lookin at?!

Came back at abt 3pm after lunching with hubby..and there was the li' scamp with his grandpa..and he gave me a really the biggest/sweetest smile when he saw me and my heart melted (such a waste I couldn't snap it in time)...


Was such a warm day and he'd slept the earlier afternoon away so I decided to take him down for a dip in the pool.Fwah!!! Shioks man!!!

happyqile& other mummies, lemme know when u wanna bring the babies to swim ( yeah, this time, only babies!!). It's really shioks man! Try to make it abt 5-6pm..the sun's not that warm and the pool is just nice, especially on a really hot day!!!!
Pool Pix

Yeah..u can see Aidan's really enthusiastic about swimming..NOT!

Get your hands off the float!!~Grrr~~

Wonder twinz power~ Activate!

Hmm..I'm getting to like this..


Hmm..how come I seem to be quite compatible with quite a fair bit of pple~

kodomo 106%
moxielass 102%
uniclycommon 95%
shyeyes 89%
How compatible with me are YOU?

Hope you get good news for all your interviews and have a field day choosing which job *grin*.

Oh! The second pic is just sooooooooooooo cute! He looked like he's saying "Hey there you are!! WHERE have you been!"
Jun. 4th, 2003 04:38 am (UTC)
Deep down inside, I guess I'm sorta hoping for a no-go coz I can then carryin on lookin after Aidan hehe..but let's see lor :)

Heh..I thought he got this 'duh' look abt him there..Promoted it to a bigger n first pix liao , all coz of u!
Jun. 4th, 2003 03:52 am (UTC)
heh heh. See lar, after all that worrying about being fat when you're not. The HR manager was right what, you do look good for someone who has jsut given birth. It's only been 4 months leh, give it some time.
Jun. 4th, 2003 04:39 am (UTC)
Err..I think it's b'cuz the dress was slimming and I had makeup & all on..
I know time will help but some discipline and exercise is needed too!
Jun. 4th, 2003 04:46 am (UTC)
way to go, Angie! u see, it's all in the mind. even the HR manager (normally stingy with praise!) paid u a compliment for looking good! ya, *kbish* yr dh! kekeke... ;)

pinkmelonhugs said it, Aidan's only 5+mths, it took 9 months to put it on, it'll take 9 months (give take some) to take it off. G, think u're cut out for a future in babies + maternal stuff!

will ask the other ljmummies and choose a swim date! can't wait!
Jun. 4th, 2003 05:09 am (UTC)
hmm...I dunno man..retail bizness is v competitive. Will have to think abt it :P..

Hee..yeah! U can also ask ur Octobabes gang too.Would love to see Wendy's Ethan!!

lol dat picture is so cute! such a blur look. Good luck for your interview.. hmm or post interview rather lol... but actually be SAHM also not bad larh haha.. be tai tai. -shu-
Jun. 4th, 2003 09:15 am (UTC)
yeah..I know being a SAHM has it's perk and all but hmm, dunno lah. Havin mixed feelings abt it..I guess when one's working, one always wanna stay home n 'relac' but once one's in that position, you end up longing to be back in the workforce.

I guess in some ways, I do miss the constant interaction with pple (at work) and silly things like dressing up for work etc..I don't miss the office politics tho..as for being a SAHM, I really love being with Aidan..arghh..

Eh, after my 1st baby, I was overweight for A YEAR ok!
And ya la, lazy also, never diet or exercise...

I was actually thinnest when I was in my first trimester with Jordan!
And next was a couple of months after I had just given birth to him and was TBF.

Now no need to say la, fat again liao la.
Sigh... why does it take EFFORT?!
Why can't I just snack all day and get thinner?!

Amen to that!!!

*sigh* I think it just gets worse when one pass 30..I mean, look at ashleyneo and flipover..both are in their early 20s ..both slim like anything..bah! Our metabolic rate just plummeted like anything and everything we eat just converts into lard *sob*..

Hee..you are not fat lah (honest - i thought u looked bigger in photos than irl)..First thing I noticed abt u though was your big big smile!!

Brought Anselm for a swim too on Sunday. He loves it. I will try to bring him once everyweek...hope I can keep up the plan. My friend told me it is better to do without the float they can learn better - I mean swimming.
:> Annabella
Jun. 4th, 2003 09:10 am (UTC)
Yeah..I know that too..I start of with Aidan in the float and subsequently take him outta it and let him kick around. Really fun! hee~
Next time, pls join us, esp since u are a SAHM too!! I'd actually wanted to call u for our 'taitai' but I guess I was too caught up with other stuff and had forgotten..fortunately too coz our babies didn't swim.

At least u will know some of the other mummies like Lily (i have to confirm with her on that first) are going..let me know soon !
