Monday Lull

Tuesday, 25 January 2005

What started off as a quiet day at work turned out to be yet another whirlwind, filled with last-minute requests that interfered with my planned schedule. It’s one thing to be flexible with your plans, but I think this is a bit much.

Now I can sympathise with my colleagues who get waylaid with much more serious matters in addition to their anticipated work (but that also means that they end up having to lighten some of their workload by passing them on to me). The tasks I get aren’t particularly difficult—it’s just that they interrupt my workflow and break my concentration, which tends to be rather annoying.

Anyway, enough ranting. I took a walk to KLCC with my laptop safely traveling in my nifty new bag which was a timely gift from Dermalogica. I've been crowing over it all weekend so I won't indulge in that again. :p

Lunch at Kinokuniya

Here’s what I had for lunch at Kinokuniya’s café. Full marks for presentation, but unfortunately they failed to drain the pasta properly—the promising smoked salmon in creamy garlic sauce was disappointingly watery. Oh well. It made it easier to concentrate on typing up some blog entries for Bantus while I ate.

Today’s lunch was quite enjoyable. I wasn’t in the mood for banter with my colleagues, and I was really looking forward to spending some time on my own. It would have been nice to have wireless internet access at the café but I still managed to get my ‘work’ done nonetheless. I get the impression that people in more developed countries have more places and opportunities to do this sort of thing—to be on one’s own, with a healthy, convenient and cheap packed lunch, in a nice spot to plant oneself down for a bit of reading etc as a break from the day’s work. Then they knock off work promptly and head back home to their families, hobbies and interests.

Lucky things. They seem to know what living's really about.
