Ukulele

I have been talking about learning this piece of instrument so long, that I really behtahan myself already. Last Sunday, I forced myself to drive (driver drive, not me) alllllll the way to Sunway Batu Caves's Ukulele Malaya to get my green little O-might. His name is Pea. Small & Mighty! Hehe


Learning process have been ok so far, above is my 2nd song, trying to master the chords plus the singing part. A bit hard cause I can't seem to play and sing at the same time. But fortunately, there is this little bit of music talent in me. Will try to post up a video or something once I master the whole thing.

Anyway, this will be my last post using this laptop, as tomorrow is my last day at work.

Cheers. :)

R.I.P. Shirley

I have known her for a number of years, although not very close, as she was one of the Taylor's staff based in KK office who enrolled me into my studies in Taylor's right after high school, and for being colleagues for the past 3 years.

Shirley, a kind, soft spoken, helpful, look wise a little bit timid yet very knowledgeable, living a healthy living lady.

Only god will know why, she was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer just 2 months ago, out of sudden. The cancer has somehow moved up to her brain, causing her speech difficulties at some point. She refused any kind of treatment at first I heard, but for some reason her family brought her over to UKM hospital, seeking the last hope to survive.

My colleagues went to see her yesterday afternoon, she was still able to talk a bit, read and reply smses, but according to them, she is not going to hold much longer.

I was suppose to pay her a visit this afternoon, before she flies back to KK tomorrow, but I was too late. She left us just about an hour before my arrival at the hospital. All I got to see was a covered coffin-like bed, with her body rested inside.

Dear Shirley, so sorry for not sending you an sms, or saying good bye to you when I still could. May you rest in peace with father god, you are at a better place now.

You will definitely be missed. :)

别怪我咬着不放


要怪就怪你自己不够用心去了结问题。

违规

长那么大,除了一两次因随意泊车而收牛肉干外,自己基本上是一位遵守交通规则的好市民。可惜,这位好市民这次却无意违反了交通规则,开着路税已过期一个月的车子到处去工作,发现的时候已经太迟,前面就是JPJ设的路障了。

好市民坚持着好市民的本色,拽着要(等着收咖啡钱的)他开罚单,不愿涉及任何与贿赂有关的行为。结果,就这样被他开了罚单,一张不是只是罚款而必须上法庭被审的罚单。

好市民犯的法律条文不轻,除了罚款外,严重的有可能要入狱,再吊销驾照为期12个月。律师朋友说,第一次犯规通常只有罚款,不必入狱,但驾照难免会被吊销,12个月!

12个月无法开车,你能想象日子要怎么过吗?特别是我们这行,每天到处奔到处见客户的,没了车子就等于断了收入,完蛋了。

真搞不清楚,法律是用来保护我们,还是为难我们?一个小过错就吊销驾照,这对国家有什么好处吗?!

过了一个周末,心情平复下来,冷静得想了几番,唯一能做的就是等6月13日,看那个官要怎么判,看律师朋友要怎么辩护,看自己的生活将转变成什么样。

I am screwed by my carelessness of driving with an expired roadtax... Seriously screwed big time.

泄气

当感情像破了洞的气球
渐渐地从伤痕中泄出时。。。

Morning Jog

Went for my first ever morning jog in the history of... me being on this land since 2003. Taman Bukit Jalil is quite a huge taman, good facilities, ample of parking spaces, and plenty of families on a Sunday morning, which I don't really like lah. I prefer parks with less people, more naturally grown trees, natural lakes and so on, very picky hor? I love the nature as it is.


Spot the monkey?

I've been away from the treadmill for almost 2 weeks, stamina down energy down everything down, so 2 rounds of park jogging was just nice as a restart. Energizer Nite Race coming soon, 15km to conquer. Wish me luck man!! Need to run as many as I can now, not on the treadmill but on real ground.

Getting a new pair of running shorts and iphone armband asap.

A bedbug is a badbug

Sleeps have been terrible lately due to some bug invasion in my room. I keep getting huge itchy bites but had no idea what bug was it. The itchiness was/is so extreme, I had/have to scratch it, unintentionally, but very syiok! Going to the pharmacy asking for antihistamine to relief allergies and to get insect spray was no long term cure.

I so wanted to catch the bug but no way I can locate it with my black bed sheet. So few days ago after work I rushed to get a plain white bed sheet, washed, dried and used it immediately. And on the same night, I caught this....


Google tells me this is BED BUG!!!!! YIKES!!!! 我好惊啊!!!!! And there are no ways of getting rid of them other than calling for the bug company, which will cost me RM500 for 3 treatments. According to them my condition is not that serious, just the start and if I'm able to destroy them and their possible eggs, I might not need to spend RM500 for the treatment.

Fingers crossed that all the kakak's and my cleaning job helps, one way or another.

PS: I'm catching almost 1 bug a day for few days already, medicine container is almost full.... : (

乐不娱人人自娱


重复又重复的想法

与其不满他人给不到自己要的快乐
不如自己对自己好多点来自得其乐

因为没有一个人能比自己对自己更好 :_ )

看了三次医生,给了三次不同牌子的同样药物,三次都不见效的所以我问他还可以怎么办并题到我小时候的哮喘病,怕是病发还是什么的。结果他好像被offended了说一就是试新药二就是写信给我入院,说我不应该在他面前这样子讲话。他妈的没用的panel clinics,所以我跑到药剂师那里求救。


最后,阔别了15年‘通管’inhaler,没想到27岁末还需要它来还我顺畅的呼吸。
