Wake me up before October ends.

Time flies! Another 2 month+ it will be a brand new year. I am ashamed to say that I didn't achieve much this year and I am going to celebrate my last 20+ birthday soon.

1. Resigned
2. Started something with a friend and earning much lesser
3. Not married and have no plans to
4. So no baby for me...hahaha
5. Still staying with parents (paiseh XD)
6. Not owning a car (still under mom's name)
7. Nor a house (don't know what happened to the house I am supposed to buy -_-)

Sigh. I do feel nervous at times when I look at the list above. I can only console myself saying that I don't have to follow other's footsteps! Reasons given:

1. Don't have to work for people anymore
2. Doing something that I like
3. I can still spend CNY with my loved ones especially on the 1st day of CNY (for Chinese, if you are married, you have to spend the 1st day of CNY with your husband's family)
4. Baby is cute and nice to play with but it's definitely not easy to take care of. Huge responsibility.
5. I can spend more time with my parents
6. At least I am done with the installments
7. I don't have to pay for the installments, yet.

I am not complaining, I am just looking at what I have instead of what I don't have. Life is not bad after all :).

A Sunny Sunday

It seems so much easier to write about my life when I was in UK. Is it a sign of aging? I have more concerns towards my privacy now (not like I am a celebrity -.-) where I try not to reveal too much about my work and relationship. Additionally, my life is busier in Malaysia. Sorry lor, no such thing as 10am - 6pm-working-hour-with-an-hour-and-a-half-lunch-time-plus-15-minutes-tea-time-&-working-OT-is-prohibited kind of working environment in Malaysia for me.

I guess this round, I will let the pictures do the talking, some travelings that I've done recently.

Went to Cameron Highlands in July with primary classmates.
Tagged along with alpha boy and his friends to Melaka over the weekend.

A ride to Genting on a Sunday morning on alpha boy's motorbike.
Looks familiar? haha, I cheated. This is taken when I was on the way to KL for a meeting.

Air Asia airport (duh! I wish I can leave on a jet plane), just the airport. Sending mom off to Perth.
That's it for today. What? The title is not related to the entry? The title is there to tell you that I am writing this on a sunny Sunday :p. You have a great one!

Red Alert

My health has been deteriorating since I stopped my weekly swim 4 months ago. The first obvious consequence is weight gain. I'm 4 kgs heavier, building up fats instead of muscles and I can no longer fit in size 8, sometimes 10. I look FAT instead of fit.

The worst part of it - I am not feeling well. I get migraines easily, body aches and couldn't focus on the things that I do. But I experienced something that really scares me this week and I am still going through it. I have been having headache every day. YES, EVERY SINGLE DAY. For the first few days, I thought I was too tired and didn't pay much attention to it. It was until the fourth day, I realized something is really wrong.

I went for massage, to Tui na and even Guasa therapy. All told me that I've sprained my shoulder muscles. I thought so too and I am still hoping they are right. The fact is I am not feeling any better after the treatments. The pain didn't subside, it still come back especially in the evening near 4pm+. 

I take this as the RED alert and I need to do something about it (I still want to get married, succeed in my career and take care of my parents!!!). Exercises and control my diet - starting from now onwards. I went for a 20 mins jog and did another 15 mins stairs running today, gonna cut down my carbo consumption and of course sleep early.  

Life is short.

I know I posted this before but I guess this pic acts as a good reminder (actually it's because I can't find other post-related picture to post :p)

Itchy throat

I don't mean to abandon my blog, it's just that when you have more than 5 sites to update & maintain @ the same time, your personal blog seems to be the less important XD.

Well, my life has been pretty busy. I am normally stuck at work during week days, hence I appreciate my weekends a lot - to spend time with family, alpha boy and friends. & if I am lucky, perhaps some time for myself. I do miss those times where I just laze at home, doing nothing. It seems so far away now but I am not complaining :) That's a decision I've made so I gotta stick with it. 

I've been gaining weight and I am afraid to step on the bathroom scale. Alpha boy is complaining a lot, saying that I eat too much and lacking of exercise TRUE! SIGH. But I managed to jog a good 40-mins over the weekend okay, I did try :p 

Just a short update for now COZ as mentioned in the title, my throat is feeling a lil weird now, a symptom that I am going to be sick. So, bed time :)

Another entry in July 2011

I have been busy. Work has taken up almost all my time except weekends.

Hopefully I will be able to blog properly soon.

Listening to...

I thought of J when I was listening to this song for the first time. Her story and her pain. The one that you thought you could spend the rest of your life with, left you. He/she is already moving on with his/her life without you. Yet, you are still stuck at the same old place hanging on to the past.

But, no matter how excruciating the pain is, your wound will heal. I wish the best for you, my dear friend.

Love this! Especially this part of the lyrics "What there is to complain about?". Everyday we complain about the small little things in our life and we don't realize we complain so much that we forget how to appreciate.

We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have. ~  Frederick Keonig

Facebook Comments: Good feedback to customer?

Updated: Just found another Facebook comment from the same restaurant owner. Scroll down to find out more. Seriously, I think it's quite rude. What say you?

Asking a customer not to come to your restaurant? Complaining about your customers on your Facebook page?

Someone commented about this particular restaurant on one of the group coupon's site. Out of curiosity I visited their FB page. Tell me what do you think?

A person unlearns arrogance when he knows he is always among worthy human beings; being alone fosters presumption. Young people are arrogant because they always associate with their own peers, those who are all really nothing but who would like to be very important.~ Friedrich Nietzsche
