facebook sucks

i hate facebook...i hate facebook...i hate facebook.
i just dun understand why ppl are just so fascinated with it.
it is sooooo irritating going into the mailbox everyday and deleting all those notifications sent that you have new messages lah, ppl are interested in you, add new applications, you have received hugs, etc.
i think i am going to stop visiting the page at the moment and let everything just pill up. let me just wait and see how soon it will reach hundreds of notifications and what facebook will do about it.

on a lighter note, chinese new year break is around the corner! yeah...the much awaited break. can't wait to just sit down and have pineapple tarts and prawn crackers and sitting at the table playing cards and rummy tiles. hahahahaha. these thoughts kept me motivated to finish whatever task i have at work. always think positive.

a running dino

i feel good.
sprinted a few times (or maybe more like strides) on the 80m track and gosh....it was exhilarating. the thighs felt strained of course and i was about to run out of breath by the third time...but it felt good that i could still do it.
and the best thing is...after all the stretching and cooling down, i dun feel any pain in my legs at all the next morning. i made sure i did all the proper stretching to hinder the unwanted injuries. yeah...woke up with a smile when i could still feel the legs the next morning. and gosh, slept like a log too.

oh, happy birthday to rossi's mom: pik kien. wishing you a good year...good pregnancy and a healthy baby and to you too, come june.

losers...you or me?



what a roller-coaster day it has been.
shouting in front of almost 1000 adolescents is not the right way to start the day... but that was what just happened. some really obstinate donkeys just refused to adhere to the rules and caused unwanted attention on themselves. they were sly, conniving and think we were fools not to notice what they were doing. already 17 and not an ounce of sensible thinking in the pea brain. really felt like slapping them. so if anything happens to my car which is park outside the house, u will know who and why lah it happens. let's just keep my fingers crossed that whatever happened in the hall, will remain a thing in the hall.

i need to cool down. but the hot and dry weather is not helping at all. jet said, even while standing he is sweating. it is just this hot. imagine doing sports in the middle of the afternoon under the glaring sun?!! try going to all school fields around your neighbourhoods, i think this is a common sight now. i don't expect those on the field to excel at all but at least, do have some discipline and let the things flow smoothly and co-operate with your teachers. those poor souls have to stand under the same sun as you and shout instructions. there are only a few of them and hundreds of you on the field. you all should know better.

and i hate myself for being so touchy with matters of people not being serious in training. why do i bother so much? why am i so concerned if you are disciplined or not? is it my glory when you win and is it my failure when you lose? i am happy to see someone who has let out her frustration and crying out in front of the public eyes. why am i so cruel you ask. at least i know that she still cares for her own achievement and she knows that she has failed. i know she is sorry but i dun want her to feel sorry to me. i want her to pick herself up and work towards a better her. bring out the discipline you have and train. if you fail this year, continue for the rest of the year and prove to me that you can next year. time is on your side, do not give up!!!

i hate those jokers who think just because i am not fierce and take advantage of me. being strict and fierce are two different things. i am strict and i hate it when you fool around thinking that you are funny. there will be times when u can be funny and we can have fun, but when it is training, it is not. i dun want to disappoint those who wanna try but do not have that talent and i dun wanna force too hard those who have the talents but dun wanna try at all. those in the second group are losers!!! big time losers! you just dare not go for it and scared of losing.

thank godness there are still those who will show me their gratitude and joy that i am being me. it helps to clear the blue and lift me out of the trench of frustration. i know it is pathetic but hey some nice words (sincerely or just an act depending on who you are) still help.

i am drained.

rantings

just a random jotting today. been so busy lately that i have no time to go online at all.

today is the last friday of the month. so fast!!! the whole month has passed in just a wink. and soon it is chinese new year. everyone has started advertising and promoting biscuits and dried pork you can buy from their friends or else where. tumpang here and there to buy more. pay here and pay there. luckily i dun have to buy biscuits and of course mom's pineapple tarts were mentioned when the ones tasted in the office were not as good. yummy! i agree. i bought 2 packets of dried meat though. you can never get enuf of those.

oh, i have been meaning to share this website aunt ginny told me about. www.strawberrynet.com if you are looking for cosmetics and facial stuff, this is the place for you. the prices here are cheaper than those you find in store and from what aunt ginny said, its service is really efficient as well. her friends have been relying on it for a long time. i might try when i want more of stile lip glaze or if i see any special edition lancome juicy tube. these glosses are good...personal experience.

the other day, someone said i looked like a boy (??!!!) i din know how to react. i was dressed in sports wear (adidas capri and dark blue tee with that cool adidas sunny). and of course my hair is not long. so does that make me a boy?? that big hip was obviously covered by the semi-loose shirt and i think the chest was rather flat. haha...

ok..back to work now. tonight will be going for an end-of the year dinner (according to chinese lunar calendar) with colleagues. it is the close the year. haha...any excuse just to go and eat. sports season coming soon. so the rounds are easy to come to burn those extra fat.

siblings trip

yeah...my sis is joining me in gold coast for a holiday in march.
i dun think we have been on a holiday together with wei. come to think of it, i dun think any of us have been on any holiday with wei (bro).
the last time i went for holiday with my siblings was in melbourne and sydney. that time was with jet and yee.
hope nothing will go wrong. u know how sometimes siblings can also fight. i think we will be ok.
yee is already looking at ways to buy discounted tickets to go to the 3 worlds in gold coast; seaworld, movie world and dream world. it will be a theme park fiesta. i hope i still have the guts to go on all those daredevil rides.
still searching for accomodation. there is this coach surfing site. u will be staying with strangers at their home on their couch. no charge at all. what a way to save money eh. but since there are 3 of us, might as well look for a motel, backpacker's inn or hotel (too expensive??). anyone knows any useful websites can please recommend. i will be spending 2 nights in brisbane and 5 nights in gold coast.

dreams and lanscapes

i have been haunted by dreams every night except for one this week. who love dreams??
not me ah. when u have dreams, the next morning, you will wake up not totally rested and feel even more tired than the night before you put your head on the pillow.
and mind you, these dreams are quite weird. they are like scenes from movies. one reel reveals itself after another.

i had one where angelina jolie was sitting in a cafe and then later she went to the toilet only to find leonardo di caprio (playing the role that gary sinise played in forest gump...no legs) trying to crawl on the floor of the toilet. weird weird....both are not my favourites but i dunno why they can make their ways into my dream. maybe those entertainment websites which have been flashing their news non-stop everytime they go out contribute.

and yesterday, i had a musical ala 'sex and the city movie' playing while i was sleeping. we had four female protagonists all dressed up in their best gears painting the town red. and the setting is somewhat like manhattan's central park complete with horse-drawn carriage! the source of this dream? i think i know. my boss asked me how to book tickets to new york yesterday for his son's graduation. inside i was thinking 'new york! i wanna go too! bring me along!!' har har! this dream ended with a dance and sing sequence on a stage. what a blast!

please no more dreams. i just wanna rest and get my sleep. what is that brain of mine doing not resting???

mi doll


wakakaka....my mi doll appeared in one of the magazines again. everyone will associate the doll with the yellow dress now. hahahahaha

batik. bah!

pity the poor civil servants of the country. now they have received directive to wear 'malaysian batik' specifically every thursday. it used to be twice a month but the gov thought the two dates were too difficult to remember, hence every thursday now.

so on a thursday, if you see anyone out there in the not-so uniformed but still i think is uniform batik, you are sure that he or she is a civil servant.

why oh why? do you reading this like batik?? frankly speaking, i am not a great advocate for batik. i mean, i want to be an individual. i dun want to be someone wearing something so spot-on. and does wearing batik make one more patriotic? what is it with the government thinking that 'appearance' is everything? bah!

plus our batik is not that cheap mind you. is the government going to subsidise the civil servants? who wants to wear the same piece of clothing every thursday? eewww...so not creative.

the batik stall owners must be smiling and will be smiling all the way to the bank soon. i still think some of the designs on the cloths are revolting. it is like draping a piece of cloth splashed with colours on. and if you are rich enuf to buy the very good material, you will remain crinkle free the whole day. for those who cannot afford it, it crinkles as soon as you put it on.

no say in deciding what to wear to work. they are dictated and the wardrobe is chosen. poor or poor civil servants.

get to know me

photo post



how can he go without posing with all the kitties in the car???





love this pose. james dean cool.




donald duck with freckles??? tapioca chips in mouth.




red suits him.



let's play charade

more funny stuff about atticus. i have to share this before i forget. anyway, i wasn't a witness of this incident. it only 2 involved were grandma (ah ma) and atticus. then granma retold the whole thing to mom first and then like wildfire, the rest of the family soon knew about it.

ok..our ah ma cannot understand english right? and all atticus knows is english. so guess how he approached ah ma to get a pair of gloves so he could go and play with the tortoises?

he approached ah ma in the kitchen.

Attie: Ah ma, i want a pair of gloves!

Ahma: sem mou? (what?)

Attie: (put both his hands in front of him upright, then the left hand put an imaginary glove onto the right one, and then change to the right one put a glove on the left one. and he repeated the action)

Ahma: (went to look for a pair of gloves. showed it to attie.)

Attie: (nodded his head vigurously. took the glove) sie sie (thank you).

the coloured words were their only conversation. their facial expressions would have been out of this world right??? see, he had his real 'conversation' with his granny.
i wish i was there to video the whole thing. that would be the best of all attie's videos here.

anyway, i have made a deal with attie. since he got so many hello kitty stuff for me, i promised to get him doraemon's. he is a big fan. if anyone sees any doraemon's stuff, please do tell me where you see it. he already has doraemon's bolster and pencil case. thanks in advance.

kitty bag revealed and goodbye attie

the hello kitty puzzle is finally revealed in these three videos.

this first one was interrupted by his mom. was thinking whether i should put this, but since he is too cute to ignore, why not share it with the rest.

video

let us hear what he got to say about his 'gifts' for me.
video

part 2 of the intro. handphone could not pause for too long so had to do part two. and please stay till the end...he did his goodbye wave for the camera. taken 1 hour before he left for the airport. will write more tomorrow ... if i can find the time. this weekend has been...like not a weekend at all. dun even have a moment of rest!

hmm...

sms...just in

attie: hey sun got more hk stuff for you and when are u cming home?

me: i heard about what you did wit my monitor! will be home at two tomorrow. i know you miss me

attie: i miss you

attie: i miss you

p/s: jet called me 20 mins ago telling me that the whole display screen on the monitor had turned upside down and asked me how to fix the problem. i dun really know and told him just to try everything. later sms came, 'all done already'. phew!

i am really curious. will i see hkitty stuff waiting for me or his fingers are just itchy to sms.

i am at my workplace. a colleague has to do some data stuff on the computer, so i tagged along. a free nite.

what a day

just came in via sms:
hey sun got more hk stuff for ya see ya friday
i think you can guess who the sender was right? atticus is going home on friday. that will be goodbye day. so sad.
come to think of it, he is getting more and more bearable. hahaha.
this sms came in at the right time. it just warmed my heart and put a smile on my gloomy face.

referring to the post before this, i think i have spoken too soon about looking forward to each day of the job. it sucks when the adults intervened. i got a barrage of verbal harassment on the phone from obstinate one and i din even feel like explaining myself since she would not listen anyway. why entertain her? i was shouting all obscenities deep down and my finger was on the verge of pressing 'C' (cancel) on the phone.

do i owe them anything? am i desperately waiting for them to come to me? will i die without them?

buck off! i dun care. i dun want to care about it now. let the young settle them. my arrangements were for their own good, and since time was so scarce for everyone, i let you all do it. let you have the headache. and if things are not settled by this week, sayonara to all of you, i won't be seeing you all. HaHa!

i feel better now...just slightly. but the shock of being verbally harrased is still here and i pray that it will be gone tomorrow. this kind of pressure is too much.

love me or hate me

since it is the beginning of the year, i start the job anew. and i can still profess my love for this job (just wait till mid-year and see what i have got to say then).

i love that they love me. i love that i can see the enthusiasm in their faces. i love that i can bring change. i love that i am a breath of fresh air. i love that i can dress up to go to work. i love the mixing and matching of tops and bottoms and shoes. i love accessorising.

i am controlling the anger in me when i thought of the parking space that has been taken by another new colleague (newbie just dunno the rule). i am breathing deeply when i see the inconsiderate neighbour who has taken my parking space and has not moved out. i am just waiting for the neighbour to find his/her conscience and tell me that "you can park the car in the porch again and sorry."

i look at the sky with hope everyday and mutter little wishes "please dun rain and let me go out and run". i wait anxiously for the caterer to come everyday at 5.30pm with the day's dinner. aaahh....soup. i look forward to the end of the day and to plonk my tired body onto the bed under the comforter for that well-deserved rest.

aaahh....i love this post. ;)

can't get enuf of kitty

received on sunday via sms
yo sun gt smthing fr kitty mobile

sender atticus from singapore. ;P

i can't wait to see what it is. have to wait till friday!!! waiting is so torturous.

attie again

video

this is dear cousin again...if you are not sick of him yet, click play to humour him. it is a long recording and he worked really hard at it.

and sorry, despite what he said at the end of the clip, please do not post this video elsewhere. i am the editor he mentioned...so the editor says NO.

happy watching. hope you laugh as much as mom...that is the laughter you hear at the background.

really sui part 2

the really sui and cham me am back. another sui thing happened. the notebook is corrupted! it can't even start windows and the screen kept turning back to the black and white instruction page telling you to start on safe mode! waaaa!!! and i am going to point my finger at atticus!!! he just switched off the notebook using the button...poof...just like that. and when we wanted to switch it on again, it was already a goner. i dun want to think about what i have stored in the notebook...i am just too numb to inflict more pain on me. maybe it was almost time for the notebook to go into the workshop but why now??

okok...calm now. have to think of the resolution i have set for myself. oooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!!

think of happy thoughts!


be happy because colleagues went for overseas holidays and bring back little souvenirs for you.

this is from china of course.

this is from england. and i gave away that bounty to another colleague. not my favourite.

dunno from where haha....was just on the table.

i think this might be from china or taiwan. again left on the table. dunno who to say thank you to.

AAAA!!! the attack of the pink kitty again. accept it, i can never get the hello kitty tag off me. an observant colleague gave me this pouch and i think she got it from taiwan or korea. how sweet yeah.
and this here is a new addition at home. osim usqueeze. thanks to aunt's generosity lah. hahaha....wanna have nice legs? no problem. check this video on youtube with taiwan's no 1 model, chi ling lin. well, she already has nice legs even before the advert. anyway, the machine really does give you a nice squeeze and once a day is really aaahh....so comfortable and pampered.



ok time to pop the pill and hit the bed. just can't wait for this horrible week to end. and do i really need neem leaves? neem toothpaste i know i can find. haha.

really sui

the new year zombie has turned into a sick zombie. sigh...not a good start to 08.


all the accumulated hours of insomnia suddenly decided to explode and hit back at me.

i got the full package: sorethroat, running nose, fever, and cold. paracetamol was my good friend for the pass few days and of course, water! i will die without it!


now the fever has receded but the sorethroat is unbearable. swallowing is difficult, as if there is a stone in the throat blocking the passage. went to the doctor a while ago, and according to him i have throat inflammation (again!!! well, a first for 08), so it is nothing serious. sob sob! i was out of breath when he told me to exhale hard few times! he said nothing serious. so i hope by popping some of the pills he gave me, i would be able to recover this weekend?? will add some of grandma's homemade green herbal pills as well. must be all the heat in the body.


and to add salt to the wound, i am no longer parking my car in my neighbour's covered porch. ;(

this neighbour has moved to his sister's house and he told me to park my car there. there is space for 2 cars. another neighbour also came to park his car in the second spot months later. but yesterday i found out that a worker of the owner is staying in the house (for how long i dunno). i din know about it until the next morning when i went to get my car to go to work. his car was smack right in front of the gate and was totally blocking the 2 cars inside. luckily my colleague had not left for work yet and i followed her that morning.

so now by right the second neighbour who came to park his car in the spot months later one should move his car out and let me and the guy staying in the house park right?? but how do you tell your neighbour to move his car out and let you park?? sigh....now my car is outside my house come rain or shine. poor kitty mobile. only 1 car can enter my rented house. maybe have to discuss with housemate about taking turns with the parking arrangement again.



and the next insult comes when the strap of my beloved leather knapsack broke! it has been with me for many years and i just love the leather. it was a christmas present from uncle and aunt when i was in germany. not cheap mind you. i think it is about rm500. i am considering stitching the broken part. everything else on the bag is still intact.

the last one came when i got home. remember the hello kitty pen atticus gave me? i can only see the cap now. where the hell has the pen gone to?? i dun think i have written one paragraph with that pen. who has misplaced it?? i wanna cry.


i dun think i can take anymore bad news. dark clouds seem to be hovering over my head since 08 started. i might need pomelo tree leaves for my bath to drive away all the bad luck.

first tag for 08

my first tag in 2008 from who else but the diving master. thanks dude. it makes me realised how old i am already...i have to think so long to remember those details of 07. gosh. as old as methuselah

atticus the gnawer



grandma treated everyone to dinner at a restaurant today since it was the new year and all her children are back (3 sons and 1 daughter).
we had it at restaurant fook man. all dishes were yummy and we had no leftover. yea no wastage.
atticus could not even let the trotter's bone escape his gnawing. he asked special permission from his parents if he could gnaw at the bones. i guess it was too delicious to go to waste. after he had finished gnawing, what was left of the bone was packed away to be given to the dog in slim river. and attie had said that he wanted another visit to the restaurant before he headed back to aussie on 11 jan.

p/s: he missed me yesterday when he was in genting highlands! hahaha...he smsed after dinner at about 10pm asking how i was.

first day babble

i woke up 6 hours ago like a zombie and i still am in that state 6 hours later. welcome to 2008!!!

the end of 2007 was peaceful enough. with a book in hand and a quiet night in the room all to myself. the phone was switched off at the stroke of midnight and the head was already on the pillow. then came those popping sounds (fireworks) from outside signifying 2008 was already here. i tossed and turned and tossed and turned on the bed but sleep would not come. it was a very hot night as well. then at 5.15a.m. the alarm rang and i woke up "happy new year to me".

yawn! the journey to the airport. i was really sleepy and had a hard time concentrating on the dark road. there was nary a vehicle on the road and i reached the airport before the flight from frankfurt landed. it was off to mcdonalds for my first breakfast of the year.

the scrambled egg looked really unappetizing because of its size but that was not mine. it was jet's. the coffee was a bliss and breakfast while reading the newspaper is the best in the morning (has always been). after the first cup of coffee, i was already high and because aunt had not appeared yet, i went for a second cup. gosh, all this coffee is making me more alert than ever.
i tried hitting the bed as soon as i got back, but i could not switch my mind off. only the body was on the bed but the mind was wandering and lingering elsewhere. i will try to get another nap in the afternoon later when the caffeine has worn off. plllleeaaassseee....let me sleep!! but atticus is coming back from genting highlands in the afternoon! AAAHHH!!!

and look at what aunt brought back from germany? no surprise eh...a hello kitty candy egg. i have used all the stickers and the candy will go to attie. the small plastic toy...err...let it stand somewhere lah. gosh, how am i going to get that hello kitty tag off me?? i must have publicised hard when i started the obsession.

a highlight from the previous night was sending all personalised new year wishes to friends. decided to be more personal and sincere since this is the wish that can be used for one whole year compared to those festive greetings. some replied with gratitude, some replied with those mass produced sms and some never replied. well, i have done my part.

oh oh...reading the newspaper today made me wanna give my wish for the country too. i want human capital development to be done fairly and thoroughly in the country. all talk of development is rubbish if we do not develop the generator of the machine which i believe is the people.
i hope the training and selection for future teachers are done based on merit and we do not simply accept future teachers who do not excel in even their spm. how do you expect these people to teach the future generation when they themselves do not know how to handle their own studies?? i am not talking about academic achievement only but also hollistic achievement please! please put more teachers who can inspire students and then only will people have trust in the educational institution. this is the future!
and do let us have more educated politicians who think rationally before they blurt out the wrong thing in public. i want more forward thinking authority who can perform and not only talk gibberish. do not sweep everything under the carpet and say 'case closed'. complications will definitely exist but once we tackle them, wouldn't it be easier to handle the next time around. proper management please.
i also hope for the country's economic climate to be condusive for prosperity. i am dumb in this aspect, so i can only keep my fingers crossed here.

well, i guess the caffeine is doing a lot of writing here. i will just stop now and do something else to make myself tired.

which one are you??
