Many things happen in the office while I was not around for the past couple months. One of the interesting thing I discover whenever i open the Facebook site on my office PC is the appearance of this page...(click for bigger image)

This reminder always makes me smile. I think it's cool to remind the govt servant but at the same time funny when u still can have an access to it. At first I was quite hesitate to click teruskan ( I feel slight guilty about it) but one of my colleague said..Ala takpe, klik je teruskan and the other staff said..teruskanlah..teruskanlah which reminds me of Agnes Monica song, ..and the word teruskan becomes popular in the office especially everytime they want to have an access to facebook. Well even PM and my dad has facebook.Heh.

I know that many people can find facebook very addictive and the thought of getting off Facebook leaves you in stress . I guess I’m not one of the increasing number of facebook addicts. I don't check facebook or update my status constantly like certain people do. During office hour I just open it in the morning and then just read for any notifications thru e-mail. Frankly, i did sneak time for about 2 or 3 minutes just to reply some friends comments on my status after reading the notifications from e-mail.. hehe. But now since there's an existence of Internet access at home and directly thru phone, clicking to the so called social website is not a must for me during office hour (minus lunch hour of cos..;p). It amazes me how some people spent wee hours on facebook playing games on it or update their facebook status frequently like more than three or four times a day.

It was annoying when you're friend-requested by countless total strangers in order to promote their business or just adding you to increase the number in their friend's lists. And no I don't add my boss in my friend's list. =) ...Sometimes I find facebook is taking over our social activities, I mean real physical activities when u can do the farming or baking cake on facebook.haha.. Another thing u just tag people's name on your wedding card and consider it as done for the sake of invitation. As simple as that. I'm afraid that the tradition of sending wedding card by post will become extinct just like the routine of sending hari raya card during festive season.

Facebook is awesome when u can find your long lost primary school friends or people u haven't seen for ages since u can view everyone's friend lists as soon as you connect with one person. I just happen to spend some time on it but not an addict and so far the most important and relieve thing is that I think I dont ignore my work in favour of facebook.Ceewah.

It looks an essay to me now. Better stop. haha. Btw, my husband doesn't have a facebook account and I think it's better to stay that way...( Biar saya saje yang wakilkan) Hehe..

Just to share with you 10 warning signs that you may be addicted to Facebook (from an e-mail):-

1. Facebook is your home page.

2. You update your status more than twice a day.

3. You have over 500 "friends" half of whom you've never actually met.

4. As soon as you step away from your computer you're on FB on your phone.

5. You are a FB stalker. You qualify as a FB stalker if you :

a) click on someone's profile more than once a day even if they haven't messaged or tagged you in a photo.

b) have dragged and dropped more than 3 FB photos (not from your own profile)

6. You change your profile picture frequently, every week or worst, everyday.

7. You have checked your FB page while reading this article.

8. You clean up your "wall" so it looks like you spend less time on FB.

9. You are a member of more than 10 groups and respond to every event invitation "attending" even if you have no intention of going.

10. You change your relationship status just to mess with people.

So are you a facebook addict?

* planning to go for carpet hunting this weekend. And wilayah is on holiday this Monday and that means another extra break..yippie!!

Heya! It's been a while now since my last update. Too lazy to update the blog since I've nothing much to blog about. Few days left before going back to work next week and I've to admit that I'm not ready for it yet. Not ready in the sense of lazy since it's been almost 2 month now of free ride holiday..heh. and plus not ready to answer people questions about how i feel, what happened and etc2...Like yesterday I bumped into my boss and his wife in Alamanda( went there for lunch with hubby to search for jelly gamat and contact lenses for self) he began to ask me about my condition. But when his curious wife asked what happened actually he had to tell everything that I lost my child after 9 months of pregnancy etc. She gave me the console hug and it just made me sad again since I try to move on and forget now. I have to come to realize that I am not a person to be consoled- I like to console myself..yeah,right. Maybe I am just uncomfortable with the attention it brings. I like to lay low when it comes to something emotional in my life.

Well, forget about it. About the confinement period, since I'm a childless mom, I don't have to look after a child so I didn't have a major problem to observe the confinement method like bertungku, berbengkung, strictly pantang, things like that. I am somewhat lucky because I do not feel the urge to eat anything unnecessary (though the temptation still there) during my confinement. Partly because I was soooo in pain at that time.

Like yesterday, I called a traditional masseuse to massage me again though I've already done with the 3 days massaging by a bidan back in my hometown. I still don't feel comfortable with my body so my hubby suggested me to call this lady who can do the post natal massage. She's from Teratak Sri Cendana, a Malay Traditional Therapy Centre in Bangi. The good thing about it is she has a massage service home to home so you don't have to go to her spa centre on your own. She also offered other services like reflexology, facial, tangas, herbs bath, tungku, sauna etc and traditional massage for men (no worries cos her husband will do it). It was actually really relaxing since you have 2 persons to massage you in your own house. She said I'm too small and I need to gain more weight and eat extra supplement and drink milk. She also reminded her assistant to be gentle on me since she's afraid she might break my bone during the massaging. Funny.Ha-ha..Ok, my current weight is 43kgs now so I need to gain like another 3 to 4kgs to get my ideal weight like before my pregnancy. Hey, I can do that.

I actually enjoy the massages more, the long hourly sessions are something that I look forward to and I still have another session with her this Saturday. But the 'sengkak thing' that she wants to do this Saturday is frightening me..I heard some scary stories about it and it's going to be painful..hmm takutnya..

*sengkak- to place your uterus (peranakan) to its original position..

I've been thinking of changing my blog layout. Since the internet connection is quite slow, maybe I will work on it later..
