i am chinese too

A Chinese man walks into a bank in New York City and asks for the loan officer. He tells the loan officer that he is going to China on business for two weeks and needs to borrow $5,000.

The bank officer tells him that the bank will need some form of security for the loan, so the Chinese man hands over the keys to a new Ferrari parked on the street in front of the bank. He produces the title and everything checks out.

The Loan officer agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. The bank's president and its officers all enjoy a good laugh at the Chinese for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral against a $5,000 loan.

An employee of the bank then drives the Ferrari into the bank's underground garage and parks it there.

Two weeks later, the Chinese returns, repays the $5,000 and the interest, which comes to $15.41.

The loan officer says, 'Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multi-millionaire. What puzzles us is why you would bother to borrow $5,000? The Chinese replies: 'Where else in New York City can I park my car for two weeks for only $15.41 and expect it to be there safely when I return.'

i know He's watching over me

so my company has decided to extend my contract till the end of march...wee....i'm glad really. initially it was only till the end of this month but then some changes happened and i manage to stay longer. i wish they could extend it longer but then i'm happy with what i got. i really thank God for this as i was getting tired of job hunting and having to adapt to a new environment in a new company all over again. though i didn't get the extension period that i was hoping for, deep down i believe that He has a great plan for me and i'm eager to find out what is it =)

till then i'm constantly grateful and thankful for all that i'm blessed with! =D

of rings and roses

last saturday, we had to attend my cousin's wedding ceremony both at home and hotel. honestly, i wasn't too ecstatic bout it simply because besides his name and what he works as, i know nothing else about this cousin of mine! :p but well we had to go anyway for the sake of my aunt. haha. it was fun nevertheless. the tea ceremony was the better part compared to the dinner. my aunt's and cousins 'kan cheong-ness' and 'kelam kabut-ness' was fun to watch. they were so cute running here and there, shouting at each other instructing this and that and at the same time laughing loudly at their own silly acts. i could tell that my aunt was happy though :) i overheard her saying she loves it when all the family are gathered together though it happens very rarely.

it was also my first time attending and witnessing a garden wedding. i love garden weddings! they are so romantic! :)

and boy oh boy, aren't weddings fancy these days. it's like a competition for the fanciest wedding :p my cousin used a porsche as his wedding car wei! haha. for the cocktail at the garden, guests were served with pretty (and yummy :p) cupcakes, shepherds pies and some pinkish-dragon fruit-like drinks by waiters and waitresses walking around with trays. at the dinner, guests were treated to free servings of the Nestle Bliss yogurt drinks, all in bottles in the fridge. we could just go over and take whatever we wanted :) not bad huh? haha. this may not sound like the fanciest wedding but its fancy enough for me so far.
