Haven’t have time to write my blog for the past few days. My San Jose business trip is brutal. Don’t even think about saving money for the company, you deserve the most comfortable trip within your signing authority. If anyone go to the Santa Clara office, never stay in Holiday Inn Express, pick Marriott instead, at least you won’t get smelly smoking rooms and noisy kids from next door. I can sense the moral of Santa Clara office is really low. With the recovering job market down in Silicon Valley, I wonder how long before the only remaining key person will leave. Let’s hope I don’t have to fly down for another brain dump. These kind of less than 48 hours trip is not very fun.
I had dinner with Derek, LokShun and SoB on the one and only one evening I stayed in San Jose. It’s great to chat with old friends. In late September, Mingwai will come to San Jose, and I will fly down to meet him. He is the only one I havn’t seen in the past few years as he missed both Derek and Ching’s wedding.
Finally I move back to my home. It took me almost an hour to load all the stuff from my car back to my apartment. I had gather a lot more stuff during my 5 weeks stay at Pat’s place. I spent two hours this afternoon clean up my place before moving back. I hasn’t do any house work for almost half a year, it’s really really dirty. Now my place feel clean and tidy. I am only manage to set up my computer tonight. I think I will unpack the clothes tomorrow since it’s getting pretty late and I’m quite tired already.
I had planned a BBQ for dogs and dog lovers tomorrow. The hidden agenda is to introduce my cute little cousin to one of the less fortunate colleague who is still single. The reaction of the BBQ is not very positive. Many people who is afraid of dogs or whose girlfriend is afraid of dogs would not come. At last minute, one of the dog owners ditched us to go to a baby shower. In addition, I’m very busy this week preparing for my Germany trip, moving back to my own place and be a groomsman of a friend’s wedding. Time wise, it would be better for me simply call it off. Too bad that the chance letting the dogs meet each others is wasted There are 5 dogs in total, one chiwawa, two golden retrivers, and two American husky. It would be really fun if the BBQ is held as planned. One thing I don’t understand is why someone is afraid of dogs. Even though a dog may look vicious, the mind should control the heart to overcome the fear as it is known that a dog can’t fight against a man. I used to a little bit afraid of dogs, but now I grow accustom to them already. I gotta find a way cure my friends’ dog-phobia problem.
