Work End Greetings’ Hidden Meaning

Here’s a list of hidden meaning for work end greetings!

Before I continue, I say this in jest (disclaimer for woke keyboard warriors, you never know with the amount of triggered people today) No offense! 😛

  1. Yours truly – I don’t know you well and it’s done unwillingly
  2. Yours sincerely – because it’s never sincere
  3. Best regards – default face
  4. Warmest regards – I want you to know that I like you or that I’m the friendliest person on Earth
  5. Warm regards – because I like you but not enough for the next level
  6. Kind regards – same as warm regards but an attempt to sound friendlier
  7. Regards – getting chilly here
  8. Cheers – it means chill, nitwit!
  9. With appreciation – at least I have manners
  10. Yours respectfully – I’m traditional
  11. Cordially – I’m warm but pompous
  12. Best wishes – I hate formality
  13. Thanks – another default face
  14. Looking forward to hearing from you – don’t waste my time
  15. All the best – more sincere than yours sincerely
  16. With gratitude – I’m old-fashioned
  17. Faithfully – used when dealing with unknown strangers

Cheers.

Rilakkuma Needle Felt

It took some time but I’ve completed the Rilakkuma needle felt. This hobby really tests your patience lol.

Taking a break before the next project 🙂


Rilakkuma Needle Felt (Work in Progress)

I’ve recently picked up needle felting as a hobby.

In the picture above, Rilakkuma’s head took me a couple of hours to do. It looks easy but is actually harder than any of the previous items I’ve completed (minus the poodle). Mainly due to Rilakkuma’s subtle features which makes a huge difference if there are any slight alterations.

Next to do: tidying the head and giving it a body 😀

Check out my instagram for more needle felting.

Found my spirit animals in Melbourne

Throwback to 2013 when I went on a road trip in Melbourne. I missed the beautiful nature and lovely air there!

Right now, it’s haze season in Malaysia, courtesy of Indonesia.


Total number of hotspots recorded by ASEAN Specialized Metrological Center (ASMC):

Kalimantan (474), Sumatera (387) vs Malaysia (7).

Been sneezing almost everyday 🙂
