2011 We Welcome U!

Another 11 hours, it's 2011! Happy new year!

Let's embrace with hope and gladness the coming new year!

What do I expect and see myself in the coming new year?

a) Physically

I've been putting on weight (yeap, I could blame it on the good food in Penang) for the past few months. Been cutting down rice to a minimum twice a week per meal and I shall continue to do so. It will be a religious affair to sweat out in aerobics once a week, will keep me trim and my skirts won't get any tighter.

Eat more nuts, fishes and vegetables. Include more fruits in my diet.

b) Mentally

Will read good non-fiction books on self improvement. Be childish yet mature, talk to 5 years old and to sixty years old. They have unknown life experiences that I can learn from.

Shall visit more blogs to know and learn about all things in life, they are good teachers. Learn and be learnt.

c) Financially

Will budget on monthly spending, don't spent unnecessary no matter how tempting shopping can be. Will invest extra savings into fixed deposits or unit trusts to save for my retirement fund.

Will help to share to pay my utility bills when there's a raise in my pay.

d) Spiritually

Will deepen and strengthen the personal relationship with Him above by bending my knees more. Making sure that I will read His word with the conviction of my heart. Serving God with love and a heart of a servant, not a routine anymore.

Share and touch God's love with the people around me.

Have a less stressful attitude, it's good for my skin and my well being.

e) Relationship

That I will take a step further my relationship with my boyfriend discussing marriage in the near future. Will try to understand and accept his sometimes annoying behaviour. Will try to go on a holiday with him, he's been working too hard.

I will try to quarrel with my sister less. Be not selfish and be sensitive to listen and understand each one needs.

Smile to the people I meet, especially to the students in my college. My acceptance and understanding towards my colleagues each unique behavior will bind us together to work in harmony making a fun place to work in.

Ps. What are you going to expect in the new year 2011? Happy new year!

What's Christmas is to you?

It's the time of the year, when the world will come and celebrate Christmas. You can hear Christmas carols being played at shopping malls.

Everyone is rushing to buy gifts for the love ones and it's being kept traditionally every year. Each child is waiting in anticipation and anxiously counting to the actual day for their gifts to be opened. Santa came last night to put all the presents.

It's the time of the year when the opportunity is to be back with the love ones and family. Everyone is wishing "Merry Christmas" regardless whether the celebration is celebrated by one itself.

The world have lost the true meaning of Christmas, it's not about meaningless exchanging gifts, parties and hu hahs.

To me, Christmas is celebration of Jesus Christ's birthday. Christ love us so much that He willing to be born through Virgin Mary into this world. He's a mediator between God and man. We gave gifts because it's a remembrance of Christ gift of love for us.

I'm thankful that because He came so that I may live.

Ps. Just remember the reason of His birth when you celebrate Christmas. Merry Christmas!

Just seconds only...

It's just a matter of seconds only. I was waiting the command from the screen but I couldn't wait and I was in a haste.

The next day, when I switched on my computer funny commands blurted out on the screen. Tried rebooting the screen once hoping that it will erase the funny commands. Nope, it did not help at all.

I did not shut down my computer properly last Friday.

Have to called my technician for help. He came and access the situation and told me that he needed to reformat my hard disk.

Thank God that I've had back up my work data into my thumb drive, if not everything will be gone.

My laptop doesn't react this way, it always goes to the safe mode when it did not shut down properly. Guessed that each computer have different system installed.

Ps. Geez, I have created a job for my technician.

Can't Keep Em Open

My eyelids are halfway shut as I looked sexily intense. No, I'm not in an intimate position where the act will leave my eyes looking like so.

I've been experiencing like this since last night. It's so hard to leave my eyes wide open and even now as I'm blogging this entry.

My nose was stuffy and I've sneezed a couple of times late afternoon yesterday. It's a sign that my nose is acting again. I have a bad sinus and the symptoms can appear anytime. It will be worst when the weather changes especially this few days.

I popped an antihistamine drug last night and until now, after 16 hours, I'm still feeling drowsy. The little 10mg drug is so potent.

I got another 3 hours to go before I'm off from work. Thank God, today I've lesser things to do. I can sneak in a little sleep.

Ps. All I want is my bed now.

Snooping Around...

Will/have you snoop on your spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend cellphone?

Their cellphones were lying around and s0 happen they are not around. And you thought to yourself, I just scroll down to the last call made and the last call received. Even checking on their messages.

Hmm, just want to know what's the reason they have been returning home late. And the reasons, my calls have been ignored.

The snooping have crossed my mind but I haven't come to do it yet, I think I won't.

Ps. A thought to ponder...happy weekend everyone!

Different Color

What will you do when you are wearing a smile but all you get is ignorance? What will you do when no one talks to you? What will you do when everyone give you that kind of special look?

This is what is happening to my friend in a polytechnic college where she's studying now. She's being ignored because no one wants to talk to her. She tries to be friendly but all she got are stares. Her new found friends are in groups, she was not welcome because she's of different race.

She's got reprimanded by a teacher today by calling her "kamu", hence she doesn't know the teacher's name.

She just started her semester 10 days ago and until today, no one wants to be her friend. She's the only Chinese. There are groups of people in the same race clicking together, leaving her alone. She's trying to bridge herself in the group, but the group seems too strong.

She can't take this taunting until she bursts to tears over the phone with me. I advised her to be as friendly to them, but she just can't reach towards them. She told me that she won't be able to stand the prejudices and taunting for the next 3 years she has to be there.

She's helpless at this stage, not knowing what to do. Either she's has be strong and to brave herself for the 3 years or leave her college now before this situation turns her into a depressive state.

Each one of us are prejudices and racists in some ways. Most of the time, I think that my own race are more superior and all other races are idiots! (Sorry for the language here).

In front of others, yes, we appear friendly but we back stabbed them of their stupidity. We dislike other races and we made comparisons.

We are trying to be political in this issue and we will still be hating one another if we can't see eye to eye.

Ps. Have you be taunted or being prejudiced in any situation before? What did you do?

FB can be good and dangerous....

I was asking my church's children what they do during this school holiday. The younger one will play with their favourite toys being it "Toy Story", "Ultraman" and "Power Rangers".

It's said that an average Malaysian will spent daily 9 hours surfing Face Book. What's more with the children?

I was shocked to hear that my church's children who are under 18 years of age have the account.
Clearly they lied about their age so that their membership can be accepted..

FB user policy strict rules that they only accept members who are 18 years of age and above.

There are 500 millions FB's users, 200 millions are FB mobile users. These underage kids belonged to any of these statistics.

I told my church's kids to be careful of accepting any FB's friends. An innocent child might stumble upon a friendly website. Or they might be a friend to someone who appears attractive and friendly.

Not knowingly they are paedophiles behind these friendly faces.

Do parents know who are their FB friends? Which websites their children surf? Are these sites porn free?

Parents must continue to be on a vigilant and check their children's surfing activity so that their children won't be a victim of these cases.

Not only children are the target of these paedophiles or schemers, but adults are easily victimised.

Today, the Star reported that drug rings use FB to befriend Malaysian varsity students to become drug mules. These students are FB users.

These victims fell for the promises of an overseas holiday. Unknowingly, they are Nigerians drug syndicate and 785 Malaysian drug mules have been arrested overseas.

FB can be a good friend but it also can be a dangerous friend.

Ps. As parents, do you check and know what site your children surf?

Really Double Standard

My job is to collect student's fees. Fees can be collected in form of cash or cheque.

For the past few days, I have been collecting one of the degree courses fees. For fees above RM500, the college can only except cheque or banker's cheque.

This one particular student, she came yesterday to pay up her outstanding fees. Her fees was RM800 plus. She came and gave me cash and I told her I can't accept. She ubderstood and she told me she has spoken to my supervisor about this.

I then accepted her payment in cash.

This particular student was my ex-marketing manager. I realized that over here my college is practising double standard.

Just because she was one of our staff before, doesn't mean she can use her authoratative figure to overwrite our rules and regulations.

I hate this type of practise.

Ps. Will you or do your company practise double standard?

Wheew! What a morning...

Damn the alarm clock this morning! No, it did not ring, actually it rang at the exact time I set. At 8am.

Another 10 minutes pleasseee....

I woke up 10 minutes later and washing myself clean after 20 minutes, I was out from the toilet. I accidentally looked at my watch and it shows 10 minutes to 9am. What!

I looked again at another watch whether it's 10 minutes to 9. Maybe the time at my watches have gone wrong. I switched on my handphone to confirm. It's indeed the said time. Damn!

I'm sooo late. I haven't take my breakfast and haven't applied my make up. And I need to start my journey half an hour earlier before 10am. To avoid the traffic jam and to find a parking space.

After gobbling down my breakfast and applying my makeup super fast, I was out from the house at 9.35. I really stepped on my accelerator and sped like an F1 driver. Thank God, the way was smooth but I have to park at the end of the road.

It will take me another 3,4 minutes to walk reaching my office. I walked at fast as I could and I reached punching in at 9.56am with 4 minutes to spare.

Ps. Wheew! Indeed what a morning today.

Happy b'day to me

It's 12.49am, 21st Nov and I should be in bed by now. I need to post this entry before turning in.

Today is my birthday, though it's not officially yet. I was born at 4.50pm, another 14 hrs.

My loving boyfriend drove 40 minutes from Kulim to celebrate with me even though his car have some mechanical problem. How sweet he was! I thought he came empty handed but he surprised me with 3 pcs of Punjabi blouses.

2 for me and one for my sister, he thought of my sister. We share the same b'day as both of us are twins. And these blouses fit me perfectly. Aaaawwww, how double sweet he was!

We then went for a lovely dinner at Penang Old Town White Coffee. Even though, the dishes ordered are just simple with his presence and time spent just make extra swwweeeet.

Tomorrow, there won't be any continuous celebration. (I sincerely do hope so). After church, there will be a departmental meeting and some ministry training. Will take most of the afternoon. :(

After that, it's home for a short nap.

However, I still long a little piece of a chocolate cheese cake. :)

Ps. Please keep those wishes coming. Continue to make my day special.

XXX...This Place

Two days ago it was Tuesday, I went for a jalan jalan after work since the next day was a public holiday. After rounding the shopping mall, time to head for the food.

My mind was on having soup noodle. I have a few choices, Forever Fresh or Home Recipe. They served quite reasonable and homemade dishes.

Finally, I settled with Home Recipe located at 3rd Floor, Prangin mall. I chose the fish noodle soup which comes with set. The set costs RM9.90 and add RM1.00 for drink. I was waiting for a dessert, it was not served. This time, they opted from their menu.

The large bowl came with noodles, slices of fish balls and fried fish slices, slices of cabbages, carrots and corn. The soup tasted different from the last I had. The soup was added with a hint of cream, it tasted creamy and sweet.

However, the fish balls were not fresh at all and tasted bad. The food is not my money's value. I have to pay another 5% of service tax which comes up to RM10 plus just for a bowl of noodle!

I will not step into Home Recipe again.

Ps. Have you boycotted any eatery which you taught was good?

I'm Living Another Year...

Another 6 days to go that I will celebrate my birthday. Another year older; will I enjoy happily or it will be just another normal day?

I'm not anticipating a big birthday bash. Nor will I receive any expensive pressies.

How I wished that I will never grow older. I don't have to pluck all those gray hairs from my crowning glory and never slapped on anti-ageing creams, lol.

I'm not as feisty as a 20 years old. Putting off weight won't be as easy as my metabolism rate is slowing down. I can't help it though, I'm a food lover.

I do hope that my mind will be as sharp as ever, thank God for all the books that I read and still reading.

I will continue to keep in fit physically by doing lots of aerobics. It's certainly good for my bones and muscles. One thing for sure though, I need to start drinking milk or taking pills for calcium intake.

And to have a smile always and have a loving heart. It sure keeps me young forever.

This year, I intend to spent my coming birthday with my loving boyfriend with a lovely dinner. Hmmm, wonder what he will surprise me?

Ps. Pls don't wish me yet today. Pls leave the wishes on the exact date. ;)

No Plastic Day

Come Jan 1st next year, Penang will have to adhere the ruling of no plastic bag.
I for one is supporting the Penang government of this ruling.

Plastic bags are non-biodegradable. They clogged drains, water ways and spoil the environment. By banning the usage, it will help the earth to have a healthy environment and to eradicate global warming.

All hypermarkets, supermarkets, departmental stores, pharmacies, fast food restaurants, nasi kandar outlets and convenience stores have to adhere the ruling by Jan 1st.

It's going to be a inconvenient for me as I have to get an extra bag to store all my purchases, even food.

I asked the local eatery and the mini market at my area and they have not received any instructions from the government yet.

Not all plastic bags usage will be banned, only those which are hand carry as these respondents claimed.

But garbage bags are here to stay!

I hope that the Penang government will provide the local businesses paper bags for the consumers' convenience usages.

What about all plastic containers or articles? They are our daily usage. They are harzadours to the environment too.

Ps. Should the government ban all plastics articles?

He should return home...

Just as Deepavali celebration is over and to some who are still celebrating, my heart goes out to this man.

He was alone during this Deepavali. We met when we took the same lift on the said day. I was thinking, how come he did not return home for Deepavali? I did not pose the question.

I kept wondering why was he still here? Does he not want to return to his hometown? Or did he deliberately not wanting to return? He's staying with a divorcee as maybe returning would bring much shame.

He's my neighbour staying across my apartment unit and for a few years he's has not been returning to his hometown since he has relationship with his divorcee girlfriend.

Ps. I don't know about his predicament but I think he should return to his hometown.

You've got mail!

When emails were being introduced decades ago, everyone seems to be excited over this new found service. Gone were the days when one have to wait days or weeks to sent and receive messages.

Now, one can sent or receive mails instantly.

I remembered there was once I forwarded a condom advertisement to all those in my mailing list which included my Christian friends. It was an advertisement from Durex featuring safe sex by using condoms.

Unexpectedly, I received an email from my pastor reprimanded me of my actions. My intention was not asking my Christian friends to have sex, but I was thought otherwise.

I received all kind of forwarded mails be it junk, hoax, inspiring, educational and even XX.

I hated those junk mails especially with pictures of sick children. Their request to raise funds by forwarding to all your friends. I believed this type of mail is a hoax.

And there are mails I received saying that I won a USD 1 million. I thought I won...NOT! They need all your personal details and bank account in order for them to bank in the million dollars. This is another hoax.

Of course there are mails that are so inspiring and educational. It's good to share these mails by forwarding them. Some of them I kept in a folder for inspiring reading once in a while.

I've been getting XX mails with pictures attached from my ex-colleague. He doesn't filter to those he wants to sent. He's just forwarded to everyone in his mailing list. Of course, there are people who like receiving this type of mail, some will find it offensive.

Before I forward any forwarded mails to my friends, I will definitely filter all the offensives and unnecessary ones.

Ps. Been receiving any mails lately? What type of mails you loved to receive?

Selfish Chipsmore

We all nick named him "Chipsmore". Now you see, now you don't.

There are reasons why me and my colleagues named him "Chipsmore". He will disappear during working hours by taking an hour for breakfast after clocking in. Not only breakfast but during lunch time too. He will take exceptionally some extra minutes.

There was once he told my marketing manager that he's going to meet his personal friends from overseas. We thought it was a short while but he took 45 minutes to entertain his friends at one of the food court.

He's a problematic to the marketing team. There are times his other colleagues went for lunch late as they will be waiting for his return. (In the front counter, there always must be at least 2 people to man the counter). He's been told off by his manager about his attitude but he just couldn't care less.

He has been working in my college for 6 years but he's just would not change his attitude.

So far, the HR has not yet come to question about his disappearing act.

There are some people delibrately caused trouble to justify their own selfishness.

Ps. Aren't we all selfish in some ways?

Flying Debris

Yesterday morning, as I was getting in my car, I saw something stuck on my windscreen. Went to see what was it and it was a sanitary pad. Ewweehhh!

Without any given choice, I had to removed the disgusting thing, I quickly washed my hands.

Someone recalcitrant threw the pad down and it landed nicely on my car's windscreen. The other day, I found a used diaper by the side of my car, it smelled so bad.

It's definitely thrown down by the same person. This person is a really &*&^^ brainless!

I have yet to report to the flat management about this.

A man was killed on Saturday by a flying stone thrown from a block of low cost flat situated in Jalan Sungai, Penang. The full storey can be found in the Star.

Koay, a sapu teksi driver was waiting for a passenger when the incident happened. He was succumbed to severe head injury.

It has became a norm that residents at Jalan Sungai have been throwing rubbish out from their flats.

It's the mentality and the attitude of these irresponsibility's people created such unnecessary injuries and public damages.

These people usually cannot be held any responsibility in doing these. It's difficult to catch them as they are smart in covering their actions.

Ps. How can these culprit be caught? Can they be educated?

Have you clean your tongue?

Open your mouth and pull out your tongue. What's your tongue color? A healthy pink or coated with white? Does your breath smells?

A white tongue is something that nobody wants to have. Not only does a coated tongue look abnormal but when if it is left untreated, it's a strong indication of a breath problem. That's why my breath smell sometimes.

People who have the condition known as as geographic tongue are definitely more likely to experience a white tongue. Geographic tongue means simply a tongue has lots of grooves and fissures in it and they make an excellent breeding ground for the anaerobic bacteria that cause bad breath and a white tongue.

The way around this problem is making sure that your tongue is kept as clean as possible.

Tongue cleaning is a process that majority people don't do on a daily basis. It's one of the most important steps you can take to keep your breath clean and fresh!

It's not difficult to do and it's not even time consuming. Tongue cleaning can prevent white tongue and help to return to it's normal color.

Ps. Have you clean your tongue today?

Turning exes into friends...

I've been staying in touch with him which I'm not supposed to. We were connected through FB.

He was my ex. I ended the relationship a year ago because of the long distance.

At first, he did not want to let go of me because he thinks he still in love with me. It's impossible to continue as I don't see any progress in this relationship.

He left me messages but I ignored him totally. Recently, I opened myself to him, accepting as a friend. He wanted me back but I told him that I don't love him anymore and I'm in a relationship now.

I don't hold any grudges against him and neither does he when the relationship ended. We are now good friends just looking for some good company.

You can't be lovers for life, you can be friends.

Ps. Have any of your exes became your good friend?

Tommy Boys

I was at lunch today and across the table someone caught my attention.

The person was huge with a bulging stomach, had short cropped hair cut and wore a man's outfit. The person has features of a woman and even sounds like one.

I kept on looking at that person and I was staring at the chest area. The person clearly was a woman and I was looking for 2 mountain top bulging from her T-shirt for confirmation. I continued to look at her back whether she has the imprint of a bra.

Nope, she has not. That means, she has no boobs?! How come I was wondering and still is now? All her fat in her body has covered her boobs? Or is she taking male hormones to suppress the growth of her breast?

I called her a tommy boy or tom boy. A lady trapped in a man's body.

I've seen many of these tom boys. Some have such beautiful features of a lady, but sad to say they choose to have cropped hair and wear men's outfit and shoes. They even walked and acted like men.

But one distinct features of them that they are breast-less or have tiny boobs.

Ps. Do they ended like a man just because they are flat chested? Or is it other reasons?

Hate basement parking

I attended my friend's wedding dinner at Berjaya Hotel on 9.10.10. Normally, chinese wedding doesn't start at it's stated time, I went fifteen minutes late.

As usual, the hotel car park was full. So, I have to park at the basement car park next to the hotel. I'm not too familiar with the car park but I managed to find a parking.

After of 2 hours of food, wine, chit chatting and video presentation plus wedding toasts, I decided to go home. To avoid the crowd of people jamming up the lift.

I have to walk outside the hotel to the car park basement. Most of the shops were closed and it was quiet. There was a truck carrying policemen stationed outside the shop lots. I did not asked one of the policeman to accompany me, because I was thinking would he do so?

Even the car park was brightly lit, it was deserted. I could have mugged or kidnapped by a psychotic killer! The car park area was placed with it's close circuit cameras, I wonder how many of these are working?!

Remember Canny Ong? The beautiful IT analysis who came back to visit her ailing dad?

That what had happened to her, she was abducted, raped and murdered by a psychotic killer at a basement car park in Bangsar shopping complex in 2003. (All this was recorder by the CCTV). She was out with her friends and she was picked by this mad man.
I really do not like to park in the basement especially during the night. Securities are too poor and even closed circuited cameras cannot be trusted.

Maybe another caption should be added to this :- "Park at your own risk. Your security cannot be guaranteed".

The car park management at shopping complexes did little progress since the abduction and murdered of Canny. Much have to be done to curb these murders and also for the safety and security of oneself.

Ps. I don't hear this news happening in other parts of the world. (Hopefully, I'm right). Why only in Malaysia?

Wedding "Proprosals"

I was shaking my head in disbelief and I'm still trying to believe. I was FB online chatting with someone from Asia. He's a pastor in one of his local church.

We stared chatting innocently and the next thing I got a wedding proposal from him. Wanted to married me and moved here to continue his ministry. I was liked "huh"?

This is not the first time, I got wedding proposals. Most of them are from overseas. They claimed, they're in love with me, wants to marry me...bla...bla...

It may seems to good to be true but there's lots of fraud and scammers out there. I need to be careful not to be fooled.

I enjoyed chatting and flirting with these type of guys. It's a good clean fun.

Ps. Once in a while, we need this just to make our day fun.

When Comes To $$$...

I was talking to one of the boutique owner yesterday regarding her daughter's education. Her daughter is in Form 4 and her daughter wants to further her tertiary education overseas.

Her daughter eager to pursue in music. Her mom was telling me that she has no money to finance her.

Music education is one of the expensive programme. That's why her mom has no money, lol...

To finance a tertiary education is not cheap. It could costs ten of thousand of ringgit. What more, if she wishes to pursue to overseas.

The government has introduced PTPTN loan , loan which students can borrow and return to the government once students have graduated.

Many students have opted to obtain this loan. It will ease the financial burden of students and parents.

Ps. Education is no longer cheap.

Tuesday, September 28, 2010


Every two to three months, I will frequent to Watson's to buy my purchase of my everyday uses.

Yesterday, I went and bought a total of 7 items which costs me RM101.20. Paid up and went back. Wow, for 7 items the total costs are above RM100 plus, it was costly.

Below are the expensive items:-

1. 800 pcs of WS Cotton buds (They were in packs) - RM8.90
2. 60 pcs of Carefree Ultra thin pantyliners (They were in packs)-RM9.90
3. 1 bottle of SI IV Firm Mask - RM17.90
4. 1 bottle of Simple M/Up Remover - RM19.90
5. 1 pack of BIOR Pore pack - RM12.90
6. 1 pack of C&C Oil control film - RM8.80
7. 1 bottle of Loreal shampoo - RM22.90

Each of these items cost less than RM50 but when total up it's expensive! Besides these items are non branded and non exclusive.

I think that prices of goods are going up unknowingly which affect our ringgit are getting smaller.

Ps. Is it surprising that these 7 items cost RM101.20?

Mistaken Identity

A Nigerian approached me and asked "Are you a Filipino? From Sabah or Sarawak?" I replied "No. I'm a local and I'm a Malaysian". He still looked at me in disbelief.

He's one of the foreign student studying in the college, where I'm at working at now. (He's trying to flirt with me).

This is not the first time when I was mistaken many times by the local here. Especially when I go to a shopping mall, the sales assistant will talk to me in Malay. Talking about looking like an Indonesian here!

Only certain people when they see me they would know that I'm mixed with Thai. My great grandma is from the Songkla, south Thailand which makes me one quarter of Thai. I have my great grandma DNA more which I ended up looking more like her on the tan side.

I've been to Thailand couple of times, loved their food, culture and language. Too bad I can't speak Thai except for "Sawadekah and Kop Kun Kah".

Needless to say, I'm proud of my heritage.

Ps. A closer look up. Do I looked Thai or Chinese? Or both?

I waited and was patience...

It pays to be patience and I waited for a week! Even though my fingers are itchy being wanting to call or text my bf again, I held on.

And tonight, I've received a text message from him; "Hi honey, how are you?" I replied that I'm find and misses him.

I've learned to cool down in this type of situation in order for him to have an anxiety feeling.

I'm so happy! He replies and that's all that matters.

Ps. I've learned how to be not taken advantage with. Guys, many thanks too for your advices.

Tell Tale Sign

I text my boyfriend that I will call him on Tuesday nite, 9,15pm and when I called him, it went to voicemail. He did not return my call, did not replied my text messages and emails.

Of late, it hard for me to contact him. I presumed he was tired and needed rest after work, but he didn't even have the courtesy to replied me.

I have this gut feeling that something is very wrong. Maybe, he's seeing someone else.

I'm no expert when comes to my relationship problem, so I gathered some information on the net. I even talked to my guy friend on his opinion.

Yeap, he's definitely ignoring and pushing me away. I was in denial and gave him benefit of the doubts that nothing was wrong.

It's been a year with him and many times, he hinted that he might married someone else. His family is trying to arrange a marriage for him, oh no! He spoke to his family about me and they are keeping mum about me.

I talked about our marriage but each time, he just kept quiet. I just want to spent the rest of my life with him, if he can't and won't commit, I don't see any future in us.

I'm giving my ignorance to him for this few days. I will see whether he contacts me and we just need to talk about it.

I must have the willpower not to contact him. It's gonna be hard as I still love him.

Ps. Should I give him a second chance if his explanation are valid enough?

Blessed and it's a blast!

When I started my new job 2 weeks ago, I thought I was going to be very busy. For the first few days, I was quite bored, asked to surf the net and even read the papers. Much to the obvious, the workload was not passed to me yet.

I learnt quite fast as the job scope is not that large. My job is to collect students' fees, update monthly report and assist in the course counselling. When there are no students' paying their fees, I will be bored.

As of yesterday, the job have been passed on to me. I'm learning how to be independent, but today, things are slow. So in between, I will be on FB playing Farmville and now posting this blog entry.

Thank God for online live radio broadcast I'm listening to and also to a covered cubicle I'm sitting. No wandering eyes over my shoulder.

Ps. No complains at this moment. I'm really blessed and it's a blast!

He needs his bed, I need my throne

My boyfriend dropped by at my place an hour before midnight last night after visiting his friends.

He was tired as he was working on 12 hours shift that day, he just wanted to rest before going back to Kulim. Chatted for a while, he had a quick bath and we retired to sleep. Set alarm for him to wake at 4am.

We were trying to get some shut eyes but we just couldn't. He was tossing so much and was snoring, I just couldn't sleep too. We were drifting in and out of sleep.

He's not too familiar in my bedroom. Funny though, this is not the first time, he slept at my place. He just wanted his own bedroom!

After an hour or so, he said that he wanted to go home and sleep. He better go home and rest though, as he's working the next day and finally I can get sleep.

I have no qualms about sleeping in a new environment but I have problem of going even the toilet is sparkling clean. There's a need for me to go each morning, but my ass and mind just couldn't comprehend to the new environment.

Most of the time, I just couldn't go and the feeling of bloateness and uncomfortable crept in. Worst, I have to succumb to laxatives. I just need to sit on my golden throne!

Our body and mind needs to adjust itself to a new environment of which we have accustomed to our own place.

Ps. Can your mind and body eases itself to a new environment?

First Shawal

For such a long time, I never got invited to any festivities. But this year, at the first shawal, Hari Raya, my ex-colleague invited me to her house. No matter where her house is situated, I will be going as there are yummy and free food. Talk about gluttony

God knows where her flat is, as I got lost. Finally, found her place. Even though her place is small and not decorative, I can feel the warmness. Had tomato rice, with chicken and beef rendang. Home cooked and all the cookies she made.

We chatted about the times we shared when we were working together.

Selamat Hari Raya to all my Muslim bloggers!

Ps. It's not about the food but the feel of the warmness.

10 to 7

When I told my friends that my new office working hours will be from 10am to 7pm, they find it bizzare. So far, I've been working from 8-ish to 6-ish but never at this time.

It's a blast working at this given time. I can wake up at 8am, don't have to struggle with traffic woes and reached work in 20 mins time. Have 10 mins to spare to get a shut eye in my car, lol...

Same goes when I'm going home. Can reached home in 20 mins time too.

Ps. Felt the hours are too long, getting use to it by now.

Banging of doors and shouting...

The sound of banging of doors and shouting came across from the other side. They started again. She's a divorcee staying with her boyfriend. She lives across my apartment unit. It seems that her boyfriend is unemployed and at this moment I don't know whether she's working.

On last Saturday, they was banging of door again and I heard the sound of beating. I quickly looked through the peep hole (I was afraid to open the door, don't want to be called a "busybody"), I can only see blurring images.

The beatings went for a few minutes and I was wondering did anyone got beaten. This is not the first time they have been quarrelling.

She was friendly before the divorce but she kept to herself when she met her boyfriend. To keep tongues from wagging and busybody neighbours, she has no choice but secluded herself.

Ps. I wanted to help her, but I'm afraid that I will be a busybody.

Who doesn't have debts, please stand up?!

Who doesn't have debts, please stand up?!

I have debts, everyone have debts.

Debts will never be settled until we settle it by giving in installments and period of time. Owing to credit cards company, insurances, finances and banks and even to our own relatives or friends.

What ever the income I earned, barely enough to pay off the debts I have. Currently, I have 3 insurance policies in which I have to pay the premiums in half yearly and quarterly period. I have to continue to pay off these premiums in 15 years time or so.

If I lapse in these premiums, the policies therefore will lapse and there won't be any protection. I will have to pay until I'm 50 or 60s. Thought I can retired without worrying!

But one thing come out good from all these. If there is no any claimant involved, I can get all the return double in my premiums purchased.

I even had segregated my savings into many monetary forms, in FDs, in other bank account and in mutual funds. Just for emergency and also for my retirement.

Just buy minimal insurance protection which are affordable and ensures you the best protection.

Ps. What types of debts you are facing now? What kind of ways to overcome it?

He reluctantly repairs...

I was downstairs lobby waiting for him, he promised to meet me at 1pm. I called him since he did not turn up and he came after 10 mins.

He's the guy who gave my new car a sudden knock when reversing 2 weeks ago. I went with him to his mechanic workshop. After he and the mechanic gave a look at the incident area, he denied that the upper scratches was from his car. I then told him that I never met any accident nor any car had banged into me since then.

He's accusing me that the route I used was a one way street on the fateful day. I was telling him that there none "no entry" sign put up. The stretch of road was used as a two-way since the flats were built!

Since the two remarks he gave, I feel that he was reluctant to repair my car.

After the mechanic fixed the bumper right to its place, he put a few touches of paint to the scratches. My car's bumper would not look as new as before but the camouflage of the paint did a little good job.

Ps. I thought of asking him to repaint my whole bumper, but what if he refuses to pay for it?

It's not safe anymore...

Another case of robbery cum murder.

A lady of 57 years old refused to let her bag go was stabbed to death by a snatch thief in his mid 20s.

She was on her usual route to work as a kindergarten teacher when this incident took place at the pedestrian bridge Sunway Pyramid.

The thief fled away empty handed, thanks to the aid of passers by. However, she died of a tragic death.

For the full story, please go to the Star Online.

I'm very angry whenever I read or heard this horror news of innocent people died. They are contributing the rights as citizens and they have been robbed from their rights.

And they died horrible and unexpected death.

What's wrong with all these fucking snatch thieves? Can't they get any job anywhere or are they desperate until they have to rob and kill?

I don't think the authoritative organisation is doing any good in eradicating these snatch thefts. Many I heard of being snatch theft victims yet their perpetrators have not been caught. And these people are out there targeting their next victims.

What's happening to our society today? I don't think Malaysia is a safe place even to live by everyday.

Ps. It's not safe to walk in the streets anymore.

Goodbye hospital..Here comes college

When Eugene told me that college environment suits me better, I did not heed his advice. Instead, I opted to work in hospital. The reason I chose to work in the hospital is because of the benefits they offered.

I thought I can learn and master the job skilfully in the next 6 months, but I was wrong! For the 3 weeks I was still under training, I tried to learn as much as I can. I found out I can't cope with the style of working and its management, it brought me much stress and lost confidence of performing my job well.

Thick face, I emailed to the college I applied before asking if the vacancy is still available. And praise the Lord! The vacancy is still available, I went to see the college principal and I was asked to start work on 1st Sept.

With no regrets, I tendered my resignation today with the hosptial by giving 24 hours notice.

I thanked God that I'm given a second chance again.

Ps. Sometimes friends in life, they would have known you better than yourself.

First Bang

As I was going to church this morning, suddenly this car was coming straight at me. I managed to slam on my brakes, but it was too late and KA-BOOM!

It was my first bang of my new car. The flat residence was reversing my his car without looking, his wife saw me and it was to late. My right bumper was badly scratched and the bumper left an opening at the side. Think the clip gave away.

Came back to church early, my heart was not there. Went to his apartment but he was not there. Spoken to his son, he called his dad and told me his dad is going to pay the damages.

Arrangement will be made for my car to be taken to his mechanic for repairs.

Ps. Sorry, no uploaded photos here.

Our LOVE is so hard...

I thought it's gonna be like the fairytale, they fell in love and lived happily ever after... It beats more reality in this.

My boyfriend and I have been in a year relationship now and we are not ready to be committed as a husband and wife.

He has lots of debts to settle and I don't want to be caught in settling for him. He's now settling in installments and it will take him another 2 years. Also is because, he is of different culture and race and I've yet to meet his family. I'm afraid that his family will arrange a marriage for him.

Well by now, I think you will guess what race is he.

My boyfriend were asking me on Friday, "If I will be married to someone else, can I see you?" I replied, "I don't know".

At this moment, there is only talk and suggestion about the arrangement only.
He's being honest of asking me this question if this will happen. He have told his family about me, but yet I still need their approval.

I'm still so afraid that his love and obedience for his family will over shadow our love. We loved each other and I even suggested registering our marriage first.

I can't be selfish registering our marriage without the knowledge of our parents just because to avoid him to marry another girl.

I really want to be his wife and spent the rest of our lives and I'll make sure it will happen.

Ps. I hope my fairytale will turn into a reality soon.

Revamping My Wardrobe Soon...

From Monday to Friday, I will donned on office wear, Sat and Sunday are jeans day. Since I've been working in various companies for donkey years, I tend to buy new clothes every now and then.

My working clothes are kept nicely and I only hand washed them. I've had clothes for more than 5 years and I still can wear them!

I will be given uniforms soon. I have to wear them every working day. Which means, I've to revamp my wardrobe. I've some good pair of clothes to give away.

I'm planning to give away to charity or to my seamstress so that she can help me to sell. I can earn some $$$ even though it's not much.

Ps. Shouldn't have keep on buying new clothes in the first place. See now what happen?

Ain't Worth My Friendship...

I was on my way back from work and then I thought of her. It's been 2 weeks I've not seen her and my sister called her and arranged to go for a dinner treat. She finishers her work at 6pm.

I got half an hour to spare before picking her up. Sensing it was a traffic jam because of the office and school crowd, I took the longest route. Reached her work place 15 mins earlier and called her telling I was by the side of the road waiting. I could not wait at the entrance as there was a no waiting zone.

So, it was 6pm and she called my sister shouting where were we. We wanted to tell her...but she shut off her phone. My sister saw her and called her but she was pretending not to. My sister then walked up to her and asked her to come to our car, she declined.

We then went for dinner without her. I was very angry with her attitude, she's just so childish. I don't know why she behaved like this, maybe is because I did not answer her last few calls? That was 2 weeks ago!

But then, how could she still harbouring this little grudge?

Ps. I'm not going to bother and I would not want to know about her anymore.

Reunited after 19 years...

Hi Jessie

I've made contact with Janice and I'm so happy to found both of you! It's been such a long time since I've heard from both of you. I hope that you are well and that everything's ok.

I've been living in Melbourne for almost 19 years, married for just over 6 years.........

Till then take care of yourself and I do hope to hear from you soon.


Ange is one of my high school mate that I've lost contact for almost 19 years! I did not know it was that long. After high school, we lost contact because she and her family migrated to Australia.

She searched my sister through FB and then sent me a message. The wonders of technology.

I'm so glad to hear from her after all these years and she will be coming to Malaysia one day.

Ps. Anyone have been "reunited" through this computer technology?

Oops, He Did It Again...

Eeeehh, I'm very geram with my boyfriend for the last few days. He went missing again. Managed to speak to him last Tuesday and for next few days, he did not answer my call, I assumed he was fast asleep.

It got me so mad that I sent him an email reprimanded him. Thank God for email! He knew I was angry with him and he told me he was at St. Anne's feast and misses me.

Yesterday and today, I called him at about the same time, I'm so geram again. His phone to voicemail and I sent him another email. This is the one way I'm able to reach him.

I've known of his behaviour so well I'm so tired of him.

Ps. I'm only venturing my frustrations here. I've learnt that I have to accept all his bad behaviour and habits as well.

Pss. Geram=damn frustrations.

The Big "C"

When I heard that my sister's colleague contracted breast cancer, I was shocked. She was healthy, never smoke and drink.

She found a lump at her right breast when she was doing her mammogram. After that, biopsy was done to detect whether her lump was cancerous. Her biopsy was taken to test and she was asked to wait for a week.

She went back to the hospital and the doctor broke the bad news. She has cancer and thank God, it was at the first stage. When she heard the news, her world came crashing down. Her spirit was depressed and in anguished. "Why me? I'm always healthy..."

She believed she contracted cancer due to her genetic factor. Her aunt died of breast cancer. Yeah, blame it on the genes....

Coincidentally, she's seeking treatment at the hospital I'm attached to now. I went and visited her last 2 days after her operation. She decided to sacrifice her breast even though the cancer is still at the early stage.

The last I saw her she was joyful and talking to me happily. I hope that she was not pretending and I'm able to cheer her up despite her condition. She will have to follow up with chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment.

Today, I met another cancer patient. She's in her 40s and not married, she contracted this disease 2 years ago. Her cancer is at the third stage now and is controllable.

She did not know that she will have this cancer and there is no indication of cancer in her family history. 3 of her friends had died of this disease and she's trying to stay strong and positive.

My heart goes out to this type of people. They are between life and death. It's curable but it's a long time process.

Having a strong mind and spirit and also believing in God Almighty helps to make the cell cancer die faster.

80% of the cancer patients in my hospital are women.

Ps. So ladies, please do a BSE monthly or a yearly mammogram. Get a pap smear done yearly. Early detection can avoid cancer cells to form and multiply.

Road Bully Encounter

I remembered vividly of what happened one year plus ago. It's not something of a flying shoe episode posted by Eugene.

I was on the usual way going to church and was driving on 4th gear. As I was about to turn to the right lane, suddenly there was a Kenari gave a sudden break and cutting out into my lane. As a precaution and safety, I slammed on my breaks giving the driver a sounding horn. Just to warn him...

I turned left slowing down my vehicle because there were market crowds along the stretch of the road. I was about to continue on and suddenly the same Kenari stopped in front of me! The owner stepped of his vehicle and started hurling me abusive words. He was shouting top of his lungs why I gave him a horn much to the oblivious of his wife and two young children!

I wind down my window and told him I horned him it's because he gave a sudden break. He continue to shout and he was pissed off until he was trying to open my door! I was thinking he wanted to hit me or something...

Luckily, I locked my doors. After all his shouting was done, he drove off.

What my mom told me was true, there are people who don't like to horn resulting of murder cases just because of these road rage.

Lovingly Filed

My boyfriend came on Thursday just to be with me, how sweet was he. It was his off day and coincidentally I haven't started work yet.

He came during lunch and he had nasi kandar which I bought. After lunch, we watched the Singaporean chinese drama series and talked. It was 3pm and due to our heavy stomach and the hot weather, our eye lids starting to shut. It was nap time!

We took a nap for an hour or so. After waking up, I made coffee for him and sitting on the couch, he started to give his right hand. He's asking me to clip his nails. I never clip anyone nails before!

And OMG, he has the toughest nails! Using the largest nail clippers I had, I couldn't clip his nails. I nearly cut his flesh, giving up, he cut all his nails.

Lovingly, I filed all his nails.

I think I will get the largest nail clipper I could find for our first year anniversary celebrating next month, lol.

Ps. Done anything lovingly for your spouse/love one recently?

"Uncles" And "Aunties"

When I open my door and waiting for the lift at some specific day, I would bum in a little boy and he will addressed me "Aunty". I loved of being called that, I feel that I'm being respected. This little boy is the grandson of my neighbour.

Nevertheless, when I meet his grandad, I would loudly called "Uncle" or when I bump into his wife, I would smiled and stroke up a conversation.

I loved living in an apartment surrounding. It gives me a sense of belonging to the community. I'm closed to a few neighbours at my floor, to the laundry lady located downstairs, to my hairstylist and his family and to the seamstress at the market.

My hairstylist, Ah Boy and his family, we stroke up a great and warmth friendship. Not only he related me as one of his customer, he has accepted me as one of his good friend. I can go and talk to him and his mom about everything that is happening in my life and they gave me good advice. They have became a "little" family to me.

Another person I called "Aunty" is the seamstress at the market. We had stroke up such great friendship until we went to church service together a few times. She's not a Christian yet, but I don't mind taking her to the church service. She did shared her family problems and needs someone to listen. She's like my own grandma.

Even though, these friendships will be so deep, I believed that somehow we have impacted each other's lives in one way or another.

Ps. Funny though, until now, I never knew their real names.

Buy 1 Get 1, 50%

It was about time for me to replenish my source of hobby. I'm reading my last book, Digital Fortress by Dan Brown and I realised that I was running out of books to read.

So, I decided to buy more fiction books. I can go to a second hand shop to rent some good books which are much cheaper but I don't really like it. I loved the fresh and the smell of every fresh page turned.

So, I decided to go to Borders at Queensbay Mall to get some good read. One thing I loved about this bookstore is they are always offering books promotion and discounts.

I went there and at the entrance there were stacks of books displayed.
Buy 1 Get 1, 50% caught my eye. The books displayed were not the latest fictions but most of them were the old title and publications. They are quite good pick to read.

I browsed through and I picked 2 books. One was Goodnight Beautiful by Dorothy Koomson and Paths of Glory by Jeffrey Archer.

The total for these 2 books cost me only RM54.65. Isn't that damn cheap? I'm going to enjoy my reading.

Ps. When comes to books, I don't mind spending any amount.

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

Finally, I decided

For this past few days, I was in a dilemma of picking the right job. As I mentioned in my last blog "Good Things Come For Those Who Wait".

I did and went for the medical checkup on Monday at the hospital of which I'm applying for the post of a receptionist. After a horrendous 3 hours of waiting, taking my urine sample, blood sample and taking chest x-ray, I was told to go home and wait. This is a procedure of every private hospitals for applying jobs.

And they told me that my result was supposed to be out in 2 days time. I called up on Wednesday and it was not out yet. If I fail the medical results, the hospital most probably won't offer me the said post.

Coincidentally, on the same day, the college HR called up and asking me to sign the offer letter, and I told her that I will go on Thursday to do so.

Back in my mind, I was wondering, whether I've passed the medical tests. What if I have a infectious or incurable disease? It's all boil down to my blood and urine test. That worries me.

Praise The Lord! This morning, I received a call from the hospital that my medical report was acceptable and I'm being offered the post and was asked to start work on the 26th July.

The basic salary comes with a RM100 plus allowance with free parking, free medical and subsidised meals.

And on top of that, I can get to meet cute doctors!

I finally made my decision. I'm going to take up this offer and rejecting the college offer.

Dental Xperience

Ouuch...When I bite on my left side and drinking with cold water, I had a sharp pain. Thought my tooth was experiencing some sensitivity.

I ignored it quite a while until the pain came back again. I thought there must be a cavity and made an appointment with my dentist.

The last I went to the dentist was about 2 years ago, it was when I needed to fix four dentures. The four dentures were located at the upper side next to the molar.

The sound of drilling, the injection, the extracting and the long period of opening my mouth makes me hate to visit the dentist.

This time, I have no choice but to go. I went and told my dentist about the pain. After checking it out, he found out that the pain was from the hole in the old filing of my downside left molar.

He then keep on drilling the old filing out and replaced with new filing. He hopes that this method will solve my predicament, if not he will have to do crowning. And one crowning costs RM450.

It's been 2 days and I can eat well with my new filing. After all, the whole procedure costs RM80.

Dental services in Malaysia can be expensive depends on the type of treatments available. We need to be wise and careful to choose the right dental services and care.

Ps. I rather pay a little more just to get the best and right dental care. Do you agree?

Good Things Come For Those Who Wait

Good things come for those who wait. It's so good until I can't decide of what to take. Praise the Lord! He has provided me more than enough.

I'm being offered 2 good job offers. First as a post of a receptionist in an established hospital and the second one as an admin assistant in a college.

The hospital administration has promised me the job but my salary has yet to be finalise after the 21st July as the hospital is busy preparing for its accreditation exercises.

The salary is RM100 higher than my last paycheck for my second job offer and I'm being asked to start work on 19th July. I liked to work in a college environment as I've had experienced working for 10 years plus.

I will be very new in the hospital environment but yet the benefits are good, don't know about the pay package though.

I'm in a bit of dilemma now. I've one more day to decide as I need to confirm the offer with the college hr department.

I need to decide the right job as it will determine my future undertakings.

Ps. God is good all the time. There's so much blessings He's pouring out until I can't decide at this moment.

An Idle Mind...Is A Devil's Mind

It's been a week now since I'm not working. I missed my office life of waking up early, the bustling traffic, my colleagues joy and laughter and my work.

I should feel a blast for not working but I feel otherwise. I feel I don't accomplish anything in a single day except sleeping and eating. Everyday, I'm feeling restless waiting for the day when will I start work.

Thank God, for the blogging and FB that keeps me sane. Also for the daily local program news and constant gossip with my neighbours at my flat.

I've been sending my applications online and have been attending numerous job interviews. One thing I hate is the period of waiting. Waiting for them to call for interviews and their confirmation whether I'm hired. Aarrgh...

Tomorrow will be another slow day. I do hope that I will get confirmation from the last interview.

Ps. An idle mind is a devil's mind.

Man & Football

Once every 4 years, football or non-football fans are glued to the TVs just to watch 2 teams running after a ball.

It will start from the playoff, then to the designated groups, quarterfinals, semifinals and the finals.

I'm not too much of a football fan but most men are. Like instance, my beloved boyfriend.

He's not much of a football fan but once every 4 years, he will glued to the TV. I've not seen him for a month since the World Cup 2010 begins, he has forgotten this girlfriend of his trying to understand his overnight passion.

We are staying in a different locality and he's prefer to stay at home and watch every match. Much to the chagrin, I don't subscribe to Astro and the local stations showed the matches on weekends only.

Been wanting to go to his place, but each time he make lots of excuses, I still wonder why?

Now, the matches are reaching quarterfinals. I've to wait to see him until this World Cup ends!

Poor me :(

I'm forgotten and was replaced by his overnight passion.

Ps. Is this sensation making everyone overwhelming?

Unemployed This Moment...

I'm out of job as of 1st July 2010. It's not that I deliberately wanted to quit but I was challenged to by her. The lawyer's firm I was working with, the boss is psychotic and paranoid.

Even I was not challenged, I will resign as I can't work with her. Given three months I was with her, I did learned some basic of the work I can use if I wish to continue working in the legal line.

I have not secure any job at this moment, but it's a good thing just to relax my mind and body. Thank God, I'm still single, and not having major commitments except car installments and bills to pay. And I still have savings to go by at least a few months.

I've got to tighten my belt until I find a new job. I will eat of the same food for lunch and dinner. I will save petrol because I will only use my car if necessary.
No more having expensive dinner that cost over RM10 and cutting down unnecessary spending.

In the meantime, I will try to get a part time job.

However, I have to get a job a.s.a.p as I'm not use to of not working for a long period of time. I can become lazy in my mind and body.

Ps. People in Penang, got any kang tau boh? Do let me know ya!

I was Challenged!

I had a very dreadful day. I had a quarrel with my ballistic and psycho boss! This was what exactly happens....

On Friday, my colleague was on MC and I was told by my boss to help. She asked me and my colleague to do so. I wanted to ask her to check on my work before sending the documents for the online adjudication. She asked me to leave my file aside, citing it was not important.

And this morning, she asked me whether I have scanned and sent the client's documents for the online adjudication. And I told her, I have not. She started to scream and asked me why I did not and I told her that reason she wanted to check my documents first.

I then took the documents for her to check and she went crazy again after noting that I stamped the documents on 25/6/2010, that was yesterday and I did not sent for online adjudication.

She yelled at me and I told her that she had asked me to leave my file aside as she was asking me to help her on my colleague's work the day before. She started to blame me for not approaching and letting her know.

I really lost my cool and for the first time in my life, I yelled back. I walked out of her room.

She came out and yelled back telling me I was lazy, I took no interest in my work and asked me to quit!

She challenged me to quit!

I just sat at my table and continue with my work, not even bothering her.

My colleagues saw this and they said she's damn too much. They will work out of the door if they were me!

I was very angry and hurt of what she said and done. Whatever she had said to me, it cannot be taken back.

I'm putting in my resignation letter tomorrow giving notice until end of this month. If possible, I just want to leave by tomorrow.

Both of my colleagues will follow suit after I leave.

For the first time in my life, never I come across this terrible and psycho boss!

I just can't work with her, it's affecting me mentally and emotionally.

Ps. I believed whenever God closes a door, He will open another one much better! Amen!

Another Round of Interviews

I thought that I will stop looking for jobs when I'm being employed 3 months ago. And I can serve long in this company. But I was wrong.

After working for about a month or so, I understood why there are so many of my ex-colleagues left. It's my current employer behavioural attitude. She's very emotional as I mentioned in my blog posting "She's Toxic!"

She can go ballistic at any moment, she's a walking time bomb!

No one could ever work with her.

Now, there's another round of applying for new jobs and attending interviews. Which I loathed to do but leaves me no choice.

Ps. I'm adamant of leaving this job.

Stretch some muscles, baby...

There was a group of people wearing green T-shirts bearing the name "Kumpulan Senamrobik George Subramaniam". Every Thursday, they will be at the New World Park Centre, auditorium doing aerobics.

Many times, I was passing through after my dinner on the said day, and I stood there watching them. All of them ranging from young kids to senior citizens were busy following the aerobics master doing every exercises.

Geez, I wanted to join and asked them how, but none I can approached. Coincidentally, I met my dad's cousin last 2 weeks and he was joining the aerobics. I asked him about the joining fee and he told me it's free and just to put in a RM1 for donation only.

It was a good thing too for all community to come together and practice healthy lifestyles.

And today, I did went. After changing to my sport outfit and having some light dinner, I joined the session. It started from light movements of hands and legs exercises.

The music was upbeat and each aerobics were in fast pace movement.

Even though the movements were light and moderate, my arms and neck muscles were stretched to the max. Which leaves me some pain at these areas.

Now, I'm having a splitting headache resulting of not being exercising regularly. My muscles are not well stretched yet.

I will make it a point to go every Thursday.

Ps. Go and stretch some muscles, baby!

She's toxic!

There are some people who would just makes you feel depressed and sending negatives vibe. Sad to say, or is it just bad luck, that I met the person.She's none other than my current employer.

She's very emotional, couldn't control her emotions well and she will worked up over every small issue. When she couldn't control her emotions, her anger will flare up badly.

We have to adhered to her style of working.

Sometimes, mistakes we make made her mad. There are times when, her emotions are well control, but the next minute, she can go mad. She's like a walking time bomb!

There were countless of employees left within 3 months of working because none can stand her.

After working with her for 3 months, I really can't take it anymore. I thought I can work with her for a long time. Her bad emotions has taken a toil on me and my colleagues.

It's making us depressed emotionally and mentally. I think it's not a healthy working environment.

Anyhow, thank God and praise Him for a new job offer. If everything goes well with the new employer, I will be tendering my resignation next week.

Ps. Have you meet anyone toxic?

New Wheels in 2 Months

Yipee yeah, yeah...

I was posting on my entry "New Wheels Soon" and I am planning to get a new before end of 2010.

I don't have to wait until end of this year and I've booked my Viva Elite 1000cc, metallic light green. I will be getting my new car in 2 months time!

The old car I'm driving now either that I will trade in to the car dealer or my dad will take it for his own use.

My parents have asked me whether I wanted to change to a new car, and I told them yes. They don't mind helping me to pay the car installments.

Ps. You are welcome to ask my new number in 2 months time.

A Ringgit A Day....

As of today, 7th June 2010, I'm going to pledge to save a dollar a day. It's not a new habit I'm starting, I'm saving for rainy days. Every little bit counts...

I was talking to a boutique owner and her assistant about the cost of taking up courses. When it was my generation not too long ago, a fresher going for her first job could easily earns RM600 without any extra certificate. Time have really changed.

Employers today make demands that even a clerical position need a basic diploma. The cost of taking up diploma could easily costs from RM10K to RM30K.

The cost of living went up and makes us harder to live by.

It made me realise that the value of our ringgit is diminishing day by day. Which makes me start saving a ringgit a day....

If I were to save a dollar a day, in 6 months, I will have RM180. Then in a few years down, the road, hmmm, wonder how much will I have?

Go on, start saving a ringgit a day. It will definitely make a different for you and your family.

Ps. Let's put aside RM1 and start saving.

My Body Took To A Worse...

My body took to a worse today. Slept early yesterday but this morning with a slight flu, I decided to go to visit the doctor.

Went to see the doctor and I was diagnosed of having fever. The doctor gave me a day mc.

Came back, took medicine and slept for whole 7 hours. In between, waking up of easing myself and continue to take medicine. Funny though, my body did not feel hungry at all even until now.

As I'm writing now, the mucus from my nose just wouldn't stop flowing. I will take some bread with Milo before retiring to bed in an hour's time.

A Cold Is Coming...

My throat suddenly feels itchy morning and I've been coughing since then. I know that it's a sign my cough is starting.

At the time of this writing, my nose starts to sniffle and I'm experincing body aches and chills.

Definately a cold is coming. Will take cough medicine and turn to bed early tonight.

That means no cold water at this moment. There are some Chinese taboos that I need to adher to; no eating certain fruits and no chicken after I'm healed.

But no chicken?! That's impossible!

Ps. Maybe, I'll skip my shower tonight....

High School Embarrassement

There's a group of secondary girls were walking along the school corridor, and one of them took a turn to look behind her school uniform. Oh no! She's being spotted. It's the time of the month. Her friends quickly gathered around her and help her to walk much to her embarrassment. This is an ad for a local sanitary pad.

I remembered that I was a regular spotter when I was in high school when it's time of the month. Blame it on the uncontrollable heavy flow of blood and also my light blue uniform.

Whenever I'm spotted, I've to wash the spot and it did make a bigger spot after that. I can imagine hearing whispers from other school mates.

Than God! I was studying in all girls' school. If will be much more embarrassed if there were boy's around.

I was waiting for my school bus and suddenly, my stomach was churning. I wanted to go to the toilet to ease myself, but if I go, I will miss my bus ride. I was trying to hold but I couldn't.

Eventually, I pooped in my school uniform. Luckily, I had my shorts on. I was looking around to ensure that there were no poop dropping around my feet. Really yucks!

I got in the bus and my bus driver was asking "Who had stepped on poop?" I kept quiet, knowing that the smell came from me.

It was just too embarrassed to tell anyone!

Ps. Any embarrass moments back in high school?

BMI Overweight

I was in Tesco, Penang on Thursday having rice and soup for dinner. After makan, I was walking and something caught my eye along the aisle. One of the booth sells vitamins and supplements.

I need to buy my fish oil's supplements. And they are offering 40% off on all vitamins and supplements. It was definitely a blast for me to buy at this time. At the same time, they are offering to take the body mass index measurement, bone density for free.

After taking my weight, height and my body mass measurement, the result I was a little bit overweight! And I was introduced to taking some fiber drink and fat burner pills.

I was ask to take the fiber drink for 20 days daily and after that, I need to go back to check whether my weight have decreased.

After much persuasion from the sales man, I bought the apple phyto fiber drink (20 sachet) for RM65.00. I've checked out the price from the internet, they are selling for RM65.00. Aahaa! I'm not cheated by this pharmacy.

I took a sachet before bed time. It has a green apple smell, with a little bit blend on the side. After drinking, the next day, I went to toilet. It did the job of really cleansing all the toxin from my body. I did went to toilet another 2 times after that.

However, after taking it for 2 days straight and went to toilet for 4 times in a day, I decided to stop for a while. I could not afford to go to toilet everyday 4 times in a day for the next 2 weeks!

I'v been cutting down rice, especially at night and taking oatmeals for dinner. Since, I'm having alternate Saturday off from work, I managed to go jogging.

Ps. What is your best diet or exercise regime?

He Is Reached

I certainly welcomed all comments and suggestions of those who visited my blog entry on "Couldn't Be Reached". Thanks, everyone!

Eugene's comment was a bit crude though, asking me to dump my boyfriend, no pun intended.

My boyfriend was wronged in the first place for not telling me why he couldn't be reached. I did not know he was under work pressure at that time.

After sending him emails and managed to call him over the office, he blurted to me, he was under tremendous pressure of work, it was then I knew.

Coincidentally, his LCD screen on his cell phone was going to kaput. So, he can't sent and received text messages.

He did came and see me yesterday night, and he told me about being his company is trying to "make trouble" for him.

Whenever he's under tremendous pressure, he will always shut himself out.

I have no reason to dump him. When I started this relationship, I knew that he can't be the 24/7 boyfriend which I don't expect him to be.

Couldn't Be Reached....

I was trying to reach my boyfriend on his cell phone last two days but it failed. It went to voicemail. Thought he switches off his cell and went to sleep. And, this morning I tried, it went to voicemail too.

I even sent text messages to him, usually he will reply, but this time, he did not. I was worried and negative thoughts came to me.

"Did he meet with an accident?"

"Is he sick and was hospitalised?"

"Is he kidnapped?"

"Is he dead?"

He was supposed to go on a work trip to German soon, but how could he did not inform me?

Luckily, I have his office number. I called and wanted to ask his colleague about his whereabouts but no one picks up the phone. Talking about desperate measure here.

The last resort is I have to ask his best friend, if I cannot locate his whereabouts.

Finally, I sent an email to him asking if he's alright and his whereabouts. His reply was his cell phone screen was totally down and couldn't see all the calls and messages received and outgoing.

I don't like his attitude on this, feels that his responsibility to tell me.

Well, at least, he could have inform me first, least I have to worry and less stress.

Ps. Do you think that he needs to tell me that his cell phone was spoilt?

New Wheels Soon

I've been thinking it's time for me to purchase a new car soon. The car I've been driving has served it's purpose for nearly 12 years now. Because the longer period, I'm keeping my car, the value of my car will be off no value.

I've been taking a good care of this car by taking for repair and maintenance services. There were no major breakdowns except one of late.

Buying a car is easier said than done, I'll have to plan my budget to pay the monthly installments and the period of which I want to service the car loan. The new car I'm planning to purchase will be a small car and economical.

I'm planning to get a new car before end of this year.

Ps. Anyone would want to guess what car will I purchase?

Episodes 1-3 of Project Alpha Season 2

My version ways of grooming tips

Tips 1 - Hair

I keep long hair so it's easy for me to maintain. Once every 2 months, I go for a trim. And I used local products to wash and conditioned my hair. I only visit my hair saloon once every 6 months to color. Regular of washing and conditioning should be enough to keep the hair healthy. If you hair lacks of lustre, you should get a deep mask conditioner for use to bring back it's shine.

Tips 2 - Facial

Regular trimming of eyebrows will help one to look more alert. Once a week, I trimmed my eyebrows by using an old fashion tweezers.

Draw a line towards the arch by using an eyeliner. Let the line be your guide. Then start to twee those unwanted hair away. Those hairs at the lower eye lid, you could easily shave it off by using a mini eye shaver. These mini eye shavers, you could easily get it at beauty shops or personal stores, like Watson or Guardian.

3 steps - Wash, tone and moisturise is a must for the face. Using a face washing liquid, wash and then follow up by toning. Dab the toner on a facial cotton and slowly rub the toner all over your face. Use a moisturise that contains SPF15-SPF30 throughout the day and a night cream. Night creams are used when the skin cells rejuvenate and replaces itself throughout the night.

Brushing 3 times daily and regular flossing of the teeth will make one smile nice and healthy. Regular visit to the dentist will keep ones teeth away from gum diseases and deteriorating.

Cleaning of tongue daily will keep ones tongue away from bacterias. It will leaves the mouth fresh breath.

Tips 3 - Appearance

First impression counts.

Wear clothes that are comfortable and right for your body. Don't wear too tight, too loud or too sexy. Do have a pair of white shirt, white pants or skirt, black pants, shirt or skirt. These are the basics colors you can match with your other color of clothes.

Get the latest fashion updates from magazines or from friends. Window shop and check around the mall for latest fashion before deciding to buy.

Feel good about what you wear.

Project Alpha Season 2 is presented by Adidas Action 3 and supported by P1 and MAS.

Feud of In Laws

Human relationship is the hardest to comprehend especially when one stays with them.

My boyfriend's family is having some crisis. His younger sister, right now is staying with his uncle's family. She's not married, before this she was staying with her brother's family for many years now.

During this time, there were many rows between her and her sister-in-law. Which made her moved away and stayed with her uncle's family. My boyfriend is telling me her sister is doing all the household chores since she has been staying with the uncle's family. She's not happy and she's moving in to stay with my boyfriend soon.

My sister's friend is one independent girl. She has a great career and a loving husband, which she thought so. She recently married her boyfriend of 4 years. She's staying with her mother-in-law and with her brother-in-law and his family. One big happy family.

She's trying so hard to be a good daughter-in-law and sister-in-law. She's trying to please her new family, but it's hard. Her husband is the eldest and being the eldest she has to listen to his mom. Her husband comes from a very traditional family background.

As far as I know, she's not happy with her marriage life right now.

Thank the Lord, my boyfriend is not staying with his mom. Hopefully, I will stay with him when I'm married, wouldn't want to get caught in the in-law feuds.

Ps. Why is it so hard to please our in laws?

Are these children bad?

There is a lady by the name of Aunty Mui.

She's a seamstress, having her own business for 4o years now. She's 60 plus by the way and she's working seven days a week. I mean, at her age, she should be enjoying her life now.

She has to pay her dues to the bank every month. Her car installment and her housing loan which she will have to pay up for at least 4 years or so. Her three children couldn't help her financially as they have their own commitment.

In other fact, she needs to work to pass away her time.

I felt pity for her as her age, she still need to work to pay her dues and yet her children couldn't help her. Her love and her understanding for her children made her not to ask.

She's willing to sacrifice and work hard to make her own ends meet.

Ps. Are these children bad when they can't support their own parents when they are old?

I felt the earth move...

It was 6.20am this morning when I was looking at my clock, whether it was time for me to wake up. No, it's not the time yet and I dozed back to sleep.

Suddenly, I felt my bed shook a couple of times and instantly I knew it was an earthquake. I'm supposed to get up and run down to the ground floor apartment but I was too lazy. I stayed in bed all the time. Besides, much to my surprised there were no one running down.

This evening, when I saw the news, it was confirmed that the earthquake was from Acheh global time 5.15am, 7.7 Richter scale. It could easily triggered a tsunami.

Thank God, it didn't trigger a tsunami like the last huge one on Dec 26th, 2004 which leaves 52 death in Malaysia.

I've felt a few times of earthquake tremors and I kind of got use to it.

Recently, the world faces earthquakes resulting lost of lives and properties.

Ps. Has the earth moves it's axis or is it a direct warning from the Man above?

Babe by the pool...

Isn't she adorable? A babe bikini by the pool? She doesn't has a body to die for yet, but isn't her smile so sweet?

She's Soo Ann, my first niece. Nevertheless, she looks exactly like my SIL. She's only 17 months and she's careful of her surrounding. It took her 2 days for her to break the ice with me, when I was back recently for the CNY holiday.

Until now, she won't let me carry her.

My second niece is Soo Lyn and she looks exactly like my brother. She's only 4 months and being such small she will let anyone carry her as long she gets her milk in time.

Ps. Have an enjoyable weekend from this adorable babe bikini with her sweet smile!

Tribute to Leslie

Comes April 1st each year, I will be on guard not to be fooled from friends. Usually, I will be fooled and then I will remember it's April Fools Day.

On this day seven years ago, a prominent Hong Kong artist, Leslie Chueng, jumped to his death at a Mandarin Hotel, HK. He left a suicide note saying he was facing depression.

When I heard the news, I thought it was an April's Fool joke. I grew up watching his films and he was a great actor and singer.

Ps. I'm paying a tribute to 7th anniversary of Leslie's death. RIP, you will be remembered always.
