telephone call

My dad is an old fashioned man. It took him a while to learn how to use the Astro remote control. We bought him a HP once but he refused to use it. Other things, we’ll get one of us to do it for him. Letter typing, chart making, etc.

So the other day, I tried calling my youngest sister’s hp because I needed my dad to pick me up after he pick her up from school. I called three times but no one answered so I assumed she was still in class. I called the fourth time and I was surprised to hear a man screaming on the other line.


Me: Hello?

Me: Pa, ambil me later. KT ada dinner


Me: PA!

Dad: YA?
Me: *chuckles* Ambil me. KT got dinner


Me: Clara bah


Me: Baru pukul 5 bah ni. Me habis 5.30pm


My dad is so comel. Even my mom was surprised when I told her dad picked up the call.

Mom: Dia pandai juga jawab HP?

Then my youngest sister merajuk with my dad because Dad had accidentally pressed the dialled button and her credit finished because her friend picked the call and listened to the sound of the car.

I say her friend yang idiotic for not hanging up the phone immediately when she realised it was a mis-dial.
Ini larr budak-budak zaman sekarang.
The first thing they'll do is blame other people for everything.

last Friday post today

For some reason, I am extra happy today. I don’t know if it’s because I am going for a holiday soon or I have lost my mind, but I was certain nothing will spoil the day. Even my budget woes didn’t scare me so much and to celebrate, I decided to give myself a well deserving treat tomorrow.

Maybe that perfectly arched rainbow I saw on the way home yesterday had something with this joy I am feeling.

Even my colleagues noticed my joyous mood because I have been laughing, OUT LOUD and chatty the whole day.

Unfortunately, the happiness battery died eventually.
Besides the frustration, I am feeling a icky from this heat.
The puppy next door is making me uncomfortable with its cry at 1.16am.
And I’m hungry despite the food fiesta I had today.

It’s really unfair how some people can just stuff themselves silly with whatever they crave without worrying they’ll rip their office uniform pants.

Sometimes I wonder if I am a case of production blunder. Maybe the Universe was busy hippie-ing themselves in the late 70’s, they didn’t realize they were running low on metabolism, skin glower and hair vitamin among many other things when I was in the making. Because of this oversight, I am also overdosed with nice-ness, imagination and tolerance which made people wonder if I am a fake or an idiot. I prefer the latter, thank you very much.

Changes are inevitable again at work. Hopefully this is not another roller coaster ride where they left you hanging while you are doing the loop. For some reason, I have a feeling the whole scenario where I need to prove myself by becoming a Spartan will repeat itself. *woohoo sarcastically*

I suddenly crave for that Tom Yam in Sinsuran.

What would you do if the only people who can make you smile made you cry?
I’ll take a bow and leave gracefully.

Of course, easier said than done larr.

Please make up your mind. This is the fourth time you change the flight details. Sekejap awal, sekejap delayed. If I miss my flight, it will not be pretty.

Your almost frequent flyer.

aching august

I woke up in the middle of the night to a strange “tak” sound but I thought it was some noise from outside the house. However, in the morning when I woke up, there was a sharp pain on my right shoulder and that was four days ago. I am still in my “Robocop” mode. I try not to move so much but I sometimes forget about the pain and when that happens, *woohoo*.

And now I am a Robocop with flu and fierce temper.

It’s very difficult for me to even tie my hair, so that explains the very “messy” look. I also in dire need for hair treatment, but life is about priorities no? Sucks big time.

The temporary house is okay except for the distance and that weird smell. I tried spraying air freshener but the smell doesn’t last and we had to open all the windows, which unfortunately the bugs took as an invitation to the house. And some of those bugs are so alien. One day, when I am in a better mood, I shall go on a bug photography session. Go macro crazy.

I still owe my mom a lawn cut. Yes, I promised to cut the lawn with a lawn scissor because I thought it would be a good exercise, but seriously, it is a very dumb idea no? It’s not a lawn more like a football field and no matter how many times my mom commented on the sharpness of the scissor, it’s going to be a dreadful task isn’t it?

I blame the weird smell for making me temporary delusional.

I also blame the weird smell for making me sick.


Is it just me or is August not a prosperous month after all?

Is it August already?


BUT this also means that Christmas is just four months away! *woohoo*

I miss Christmas but we all know that few days before Christmas I would get all weird and wish Christmas was over. I don’t know why but it’s my year-end must-go-through phase. I think at this point, I just miss having something to look forward to.

I do have my Vietnam trip this month end but my enthusiasm kicked a little too early and now it is in coma. I am waiting for it to wake up from its deep sleep. I am just too distracted to be excited about anything these days but believe me when I say I am already half way through my Christmas list.

My theme this year is still “Wearables” but instead of one item, I’ll throw in a couple of stuffs I have bought over the year. Of course, this excludes many things that may not last the waiting period or something that is in trend.

I mean, no one would like a Twilight bed sheet for Christmas would they? I am just saying. I will never buy anything Twilight. By the way, do they even have bed sheet kah? Why would any sane adult or teen for that matter buy an Edward printed bed sheet anyway? So when they lie in bed, they are like together gether? *LOL*

Yes, my son says I’m lame too.

Anyway, everyone deserves a good Christmas this year. Things have been difficult for many people. I really do wish there is something I can do or say to make it better. *sighs*

This too shall pass my friends.

In church the other day, I gave my son some money to put in the collection bag. He keeps telling me he wants to belanja me minum Yoyo the next day. I absentmindedly agree then I noticed he didn’t put the money in.

Me: Why you didn’t put in the money?
Ekiel: Kan I say I belanja you Yoyo

Me: How can like that?

Ekiel: You say just now OK.

Me: Put in the money

Ekiel: *makes sad puppy face*

Me: Bah nanti me ganti larr the money

Ekiel is such a conman boy these days, I really need to be careful with what I say and agree with him. He will claim sampai he gets what he wants.

Perseverance is a good thing but stubbornness gives me ulcer.
