Dying… :-(

I’m nuts.

Just climbed 25 flights of stairs, thanks to an annual company contest where the five fastest stair climbers get NT$2,000 each.

When I got to the top, I was huffing and puffing and so out of energy. I tell you, I almost lost consciousness and could see bright stars. I had to sit down and couldn’t stand up because my legs hurt too much, and had to consume more than 10 puffs of oxygen just to get my color back.

My boss, who’s very fit, was able to finish in 5 minutes 20 seconds. That’s a pretty good score.

Before we started the contest, she jokingly told Jasmin (another colleague) and I, “If you beat me, I’ll kiiiiilll you…”

*Was that just a threat?*

Anyway, I hope she’s seriously joking ’cause I finished in 4 minutes 36 seconds.

Among 200 competitors, I think I have a good chance of winning.

Otherwise, I’m happily content with a shoe dryer, Sun Merry bakery goods, and a big silk blanket (great for the winter).

But given the almost death state I was in, don’t really think it’s worth it. 🙁

Anyway, we’ll see how things go. I should at least win after all the trauma I’ve gotten myself into.

Merry Christmas!!!

Just found out that I came in 3rd place, though I still win that NT$2,000 cash prize! My boss miscalculated btw and came in first at 4 minutes 22 seconds.

Phew! 🙂


About Bonita

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!
