Whoa, it has already been one month into the new year?!

Work has been CRAZY lately, a researcher left around Nov. but boss decided not to hire a new one right now = =; And then we are doing audited report for the past two years, so that means hunting down old documents on top of everything else *pulls hair out*
Good thing is tho, I got two months salary as bonus, and a raise for the next year.
Bad thing is... when I told my dad what my new salary is (which, as far as I know, is already higher than all my highschool/college friends that I kept in touch with), he was like "... as long as you're happy with that" = =; he thinks I should be on a career path to be an executive or something... *sigh* hate to disappoint, but I don't think I'm cut out for that.

On a happier (?) note, saw Sweeney Todd at the cinema yesterday, loved it, tho I missed the parts that they took out (esp the "we've got tinker", "something pinker", "tailor?", "paler", "butler!", "subtler" bit xD) but it was beau~tiful~ anyway XD

Getting dragged to China for vacation next week, it's bloody cold there right now tho', I'm half hoping the tour would get cancelled, or if it doesn't, I pray we don't get stuck there for a week because of bad weather.

Oooh the weather has been very bad over there in China lately - I've a few friends who got stuck when the storms hit... :( I hope the weather gets better by the time you get there!

Haven't seen Sweeney Todd, but I've seen some ads for it - how's Johnny Depp's singing, btw? I've heard some mixed reports about that ... I'm kinda curious...

And Happy Chinese New Year. :)

Sorry for late reply XD

I managed to get there and get back without transporational trouble. But it was pretty darn cold up there ><

Johnny Depp's singing was okay. If he were singing like that on an actual musical production on stage, I'd be heading desk the whole time (eh... if I were in the first few rows, it wouldn't have carried much further than that). But on film, and esp for the way the movie re-interpreted the character in a more less manical, more jaded way, it works well. Same goes for Helena.
