I am not as efficient as I want to be these days... I am slow... slow thinking, slow reacting, slow working, ... I am not even responsive to people who asked me a question or talk to me and wait for a nod or something!! I guess it makes people feel that I am growing cold or arrogant...

It feels like I am on drugs or something! I know it could be due to my recent low blood pressure but it sure has made me kind of lazy!!! (a real pet peeve of mine!)

I am lucky that I haven't fallen sick yet as I am exhausted due to relentless hard work during the past 2 months. I am just trying to keep the mindset that I cannot afford to fall sick!! I have no time to stay at home in bed... (like I am a machine!)

All I do when I get home these days, is lay down in front of the TV and watch my "sex and the city" DVDs until I am ready to drop dead in bed. Gosh! I love that show...

:) :) :)

Two of our most wonderful friends are moving in together at the end of this month. They were engaged about 1.5 months ago and the big day will probably be sometime in Spring 2006...

I wish both of them the best :)

Pictures from the trip to Finland + Stop @ UK (May '05)

I had to go to Finland for work for 2 weeks in May. I got a chance to visit Helsinki, Oulu, Tampere, and Salo while I was there. The trip was quite intensive in terms of how much work had to be done and how many goals had to be accomplished but overall it was pretty successful.

I kind of liked Finland! Almost everyone speaks English well, and Fins are pretty friendly. The country is reasonably deciplined and 98% of people are Finnish. (Less than 2% immigrants!)

On the way back from Finland, I had a chance to stop in London and get some rest after 2 weeks of hard work work work! TC and I got a chance to meet with Ouna (our Egyptian friend) in London as he's moved there for work. It was fun and we enjoyed our reunion a lot.

I am not sure if I am a big fan of London, but I wouldn't mind living there as a short term ex-pat or for vacation!! London is too damn expensive!! I guess it's the 2nd most expensive city in the world after Tokyo!

The pictures can be found here!!
