Old Wives Tales

When I was young, I remembered a few old wives tales which were told by my grandma and hear from old horses mouth, a prominent one I truly remembered till now.

I was told that whenever there is a moon hanging in the night sky, do not point at it. If you do, you'll get a gad cut behind the ears. Of course, I did not believe in this and to prove this belief, I tested and pointed to the moon. And to my shock, I had bad cut behind my ears the next few days. Now, at the point, I thought I had the cut resulting from not wiping behind my ears.

So, whenever the moon rise again, I pointed again and I had experienced another bad cut. This time I really believed this old wives tale!

In my heyday, I heard of other wives tales.

a) Never cross under a ladder. Bad luck will follow;

b) Make sure that a black cat won't jump across a dead body. It will "awaken" the body;

c) Pregnant women are not allowed to hold scissors and needles. These will harm the unborn child;

d) During the chinese 7th month, it's not advisable to venture out at night. You might encountered unwanted visitors;

e) Don't ever break a mirror. It will bring bad luck for seven years!

Each society has their own beliefs and superstitious. Just take it like a pinch of salt.

Earth Day 2009 Aftermath

Did all of you participate the Earth Hour on last Saturday for an hour? I did participate but I admitted that I cheated a bit. Well, I did switch off all my lights but I did not when I went to toilet and take a bath. Hey, I couldn't wait for one hour to shower.

I've felt glad that I did participate and it's not this time we need to participate this event. Let us do a little bit and be sensitive of our surrounding. Maybe there are a few steps that we need to be adhered to:-

a) Try not to receive plastic bags when each time we buy things. If possible, do carry your own bag.

b) Do encourage to take tiffin carrier to store food. This is to discourage of using plastic bags and Styrofoams which can be a danger to our health and the environment.

c) Do car pool, if possible, take public transport.

d) Be sure to switch off the lights when not in use.

e) Do avoid unnecessary opening of the fridge.

f) Recycle!

Earth Day 2009

Come this Saturday, 28 March, this is the day when the world is called to switch off their lights and electricity appliances for an hour. In Malaysia, we are told to this from 8.30-9.30pm. This is to commemorate the Earth resting day for an hour.

The Earth had been suffering from all the damages we human being have cordoned. She has two large holes in the ozone, coughing up smoke emissions, her temperatures went crazy, kept non-biodegradable items like plastics, cloths and styrofoams.

The weather of today was not the same as years ago. It has been reported that hot temperatures worldwide sored as high as 3 degrees Celsius and cold temperature degrees rose likewise. The glaciers have been melting each day.

We, human being is to be blame. We contributed all these factors to spoilt the earth. She's sick today and if we do not continue to cure her, she will be so sick that in a few years to come, we will suffer because of her wrath.

Let's join hand together to switch off the lights for an hour this Sat and also cultivate a culture of recycling.

P/s, I seldom receive goods stored in plastic bags nowadays, unless if I have to only.

My Fourth Day

It's been fourth day in my new office and I'm still a baby trying to learn and get the hang of my job and it's system. Nevertheless to say that the staff in my office is less than 5 people, which means less gossip and politics issue.

One thing for sure is that the staff benefit is not so comprehensive compared to my previous company. But it's a blast that I walked to work from my apartment. I can wake up at 8am everyday, I saved a lot on my petrol and also traffic woes!

I've also have the freedom to be online, no watchful eyes around.

My New Job

To all my fellows friends and bloggers, yipee, I would like to share this good news.

I've got a new job working with my ex-supplier in which he would be my new boss on Monday the 16th.

When I've tendered my resignation on the 21st Jan, I was worried about getting a new job in due to the economy turndown. Deep down, I was struggling as I'm worried that there will be no income for me to sustain. I leave this matter to the Lord.

Studying was my second option if I couldn't find a job in 6 months. But after 2 months of praying earnestly hard and searching for jobs, the Lord indeed move in His own timing. Praise Him! He did answered my prayer.

Never would I thought the Lord have blessed me with an income that is sustainable for my everyday provision and furthermore, it's a walking distance from my apartment!

Praise Him! The Lord is indeed good!

P/s Right now, I'm using my godbrother pc's to enter this blog. You guys won't be hearing as much from me. Be patient though, I will update my blogs as soon I purchased a laptop soon.

Got To Believe in Fate

The call finally came last nite, my bf called. I really have no heart to ask for the break up, after hearing his voice. (You guys can scold or curse me, whatever). I sounded distant yesterday, was still a bit upset.

I brought up about the age lied and I told him that my trust in him has diminished. And even brought up the subject of relationship fulfillment and marriage. He told me that "we just met, and now you want to talk about marriage?"

Maybe my approach on marriage was inappropriate at this stage, I think I'm having insecurity about this, knowing that I won't be seeing him for at least another year.
I'm afraid that we will end up meeting other people.

I do hope that he will be coming back to see me another 6 months.

Most of the time, I want my way of this relationship, not knowing his part of how he wants to be.

Deep down, I truly want this relationship to work despite the long distance. At the moment, guess I'll just got to hold on.

He will be coming down this Tuesday to meet me before leaving to US on Wednesday.

P/s Fate as it said, if this relationship works, then it will work no matter what the storms ahead of you. Just got to believe in fate.

It's Not Meant To Be

Aah, the final day and months of waiting came. My boyfriend came on the 26th, not on the 24th as he missed the flight. I was at the airport waiting with much anxiety and anticipation.

Waited... waited and waited. Finally, he showed up at the arrival and we met. Ahem, he was not the tall, dark and handsome guy as he claimed he's not; and he looked much older than the photo! Like 10 years!

I took him to the hotel and along the way, we talked and I prompted the question of how old he is, he did not tell me at first, but after much coaxing, he let the cat out of the bag. Yeap, my hunch is right. He's nine years older from his original age and I don't like the way he lied to me.

I brought up the question of marriage and spending the rest of our lives together. And he was not too keen about this subject.

After spending some time, we went out for dinner. Spend the night and he told me that he wants to go back to his hometown in Perak the next day. I was disappointed of him not spending another day with me and I've got to understand that he has to visit his family.

But, since these past few days, I feel that he's not that excited about me having as his girlfriend. He just called me once. I'm planning to go to his hometown to visit him or either I'm expecting him to come over but he's giving me excuses of wanting to spent time with his friends in KL this coming weekend. Gosh, is he hiding something here? Maybe he's having a family hidden somewhere.

I can feel that he's not being honest, sincere and serious about this relationship. He could take me as a convenient or stop over gf.

Deep down, I feel that I was really a stupid fool in love as maybe I've been blinded by this love. I feel horrible and devastated and I think I have to let go.

P/s I won't call him anymore and if he does calls me, I will ask for the breakup. Will update you guys on this hot news! It only take a few days more to make this final decision.
