It must be a thankful week for me this week as I reminisce all the things in life that I am grateful for. Ms. Ellie, also a fellow-blogger mailed me asking me about the not-so-recent tsunami which thrashed part of Penang and asked me how it was because I left a comment in her box when she related that she had experienced some tremors in her home a few days back.
'
Thinking back to that fateful day, everything seemed fine. It was the day after Christmas, and my family and I were preparing to have a Christmas lunch get-together with our family. That morning, I even attended mass but was oblivious to what had happened in Sri Lanka & Sumatera. After mass, everyone was busy helping out in the kitchen, getting the food & drinks ready for our guests. It was such a hot day that day and suprisingly, there was NO breeze at all either. Thank goodness that didn't put a damper on the Xmas mood.
'
After lunch, when everyone had quieten down and becoming more lazy after filling them tum-tum, we watched a family VCD my uncle had painstakingly put together. It was AWESOME!! It had loads of OLD pictures from the past and you could see how geeky & nerdy most of my uncles and aunties looked like in those days. My mum, was without a doubt, the prettiest among the lot. :D And my dad - hah! None of my uncles can challenge him. Humph! *Thumbs up!!* SO handsome and TALL! *GRIN* After the show, I went outside to get a drink when the winds started to blow SO strongly, for no reason (or so I thought). It certainly suprised me because just an hour or so ago, it was SO HOT and no breeze AT ALL. Nothing crossed my mind but I was thankful that at least it wouldn't be too hot anymore.
'
People started going back by 4.30pm and by the time everyone left, we were dead tired and with the weather so hot, all of us cramped up in my middle room, switched on the air con and fell asleep. My man called me up about 6pm and I was still asleep then. He sounded so worried when he asked me if I was alright. I answered groggily that I was and why shouldn't I be worried and then he told me that his mum had watched on TV that a tsunami had hit part of Asia and Malaysia was in the line of destructionm being so close to Sumatera and all. I actually LAUGHED at him and said how is it possible that MALAYSIA of all the places would be affected?? I mean, come on....such things don't happen to Malaysia, please la, right? RIGHT??
'
Obviously, I was dead wrong. I didn't bother about his call and assured everyone at home was fine. It was until I saw the news that NIGHT, that I realise how bad we had been hit. However, the joke of it all was that other countries had the news so much earlier than we did. I only heard about it on the 8.30pm news!!! I really dont understand how that happened. Anyway, I was stunned. Parts of Penang, including Gurney Drive right up to Batu Feringghi were affected (if I am not wrong). I was worried for my friends but thankful that everyone one I knew, including my family and I were fine. We didn't feel anything. But a friend of mine mentioned that she felt slight 'vibrations' beneath her feet during mass. She didn't realise that it was tremors. NO ONE realise it was tremors. She thought that it was her nephew shaking his legs and ended up scolding him and asking him to behave as he was in church. Poor kid got scolding for no reason. It was only after the continuous tremors and she staring at him, that he finally answered in a smll voice saying that he wasnt doing anything. She was a bit suprised but like me, pushed any ridiculous thoughts away.
'
I know I will never know what it was like having to experience such a traumatic event happening to me, my familiar or my home. And I hope that I don't either. The trail of destruction left behind was horrible. The loss of the lives of loved one, homes and so much more, is too much for my mind to comprehend. Although it has been more than 6 months since this horrific even took place, I'm sure it will not be erased from the minds of the victims and those who were direct or indirectly involved in the whole affair.
'
Although I did not experience any tremors, I had a smallt panic attack while in Gold Coast. The waves there are HUGE and the people love it! But for me, that one particular HUGE wave I saw coming at me, had me rooted to the ground. I don't know WHAT or WHY that sense of panic attacked me but it was enough to get me out of the water and safely plant myself at a safe distance. My man was curious as to why I was acting funny at the beach seeing that it was a beautiful day and the water as great, but when I told him, he just kept quiet. I guess he understood. While seated by the water's edge and watching the waves lap at my feet, I kept thinking about how those people must have felt when they saw that gigantic wave coming at them and knowing that all that effort put into running away from the wave couldn't possibly save them and knowing that no amount of strength in their arms would be sufficient to swim against the current and bring them to safety - it must have been horrific! And here I am being afraid of this 'small' wave, I felt stupid after that, I really did.
'
I am really thankful that my family and I did not suffer at all but my compassion and prayers go out to all those who had survived the incident. I'm sure they are having a VERY tough time coming to terms with the loss of loved ones and home.
'
I am thankful...I am blessed.

My beloved sis sent me this in the mail this morning (Yeah, I know. I get LOADS of stuff in mail box that if i dont clear it out - whatever Yahoo is offering for free now ain't gonna be enough for moi!) You have heard this a few times but not with my comments, right? :D
'
1. On the average, 12 newborns will be given tothe wrong parents daily. *Reminds my of that SP case but that was baby-nap.
2. A raisin dropped in a glass of fresh champagnewill bounce up and down continuously from thebottom of the glass to the top. *If I'm bored enough, I'll sit down and count how many times the raisin can bob up and down like that within an hour. Might even do a thesis on that.
3. Chocolate kills dogs! True, chocolate affects adog's heart and nervous system. A few ounces is enough to kill a small sized dog. *My dogs eat everthing from dragon heart fruit to garlic, what could chocolate possibly do to them??? O right.....run amok n destroy my garden. YUP, that sound's about right.
4. Because metal was scarce, the Oscars given outduring World War II were made of wood. *I hope they didn't have as much white ants as I do at home, or they'd be crying their eyes out!! :p
5. There are no clocks in Las Vegas gambling casinos. *Wonder if its the same in Genting? - Reminds self to check it out next time.
6. The original name for the butterfly was "flutterby"! *Come my lady, Come come my lady, You're my flutterfly, Sugar baby.....
7. Dentists recommend that a toothbrush be kept at least six feet away from a toilet to avoid air borne particles resulting from the flush. *Damn.... - runs away to measure distance
8. The first owner of the Marlboro company died of lung cancer. *Why is it I'm not suprised?
9. Marilyn Monroe had six toes on one foot. *Ugghhhh...she's a freak show runaway!!!! Arrrrrgggghhhhhh!!!
10. Adolf Hitler's mother seriously considered having an abortion but was talked out of it by her doctor. *Someone should have shot that doctor when he said that. Sigh.
11. To escape the grip of a crocodile's jaws, prick your fingers into its eyeballs. It will let you go instantly. *Hmm.... - takes note and reminds self to send info to the Croc Hunter
12. The most common name in the world is Mohammed. *And I bet at one time, 'Osama' reigned numero uno, right?
13. The "pound" (#) key on your keyboard is calledan octothorp. *Octo-what????
14. Rubber bands last longer when refrigerated. *Hmm.....what abt OTHER rubber? :D
15. "Dreamt" is the only word in the English language that ends in "mt". *What about 'prompt'?
16. European women didn't wear underwear until the1900's. *I bet men were a LOT happier then.
17. 315 entries in Webster's 1996 Dictionary were misspelled. *Now we know why 'prompt' didn't exist!! - Shakes head
18. We shed 40 pounds of skin a lifetime. *ONLY 40????
19. When a person shakes their head from side to side, he is saying "yes" in Sri Lanka. *And as in any other Indian community too.

As I make my usual pit stop by Lilian's blog, her post on single mum's really caught my eye. She mentions about how ignorant she is about the usual monthly payments and even going to the ATMs to withdraw money and what got me thinking about my Mummy is that she was in that exact position some 10 years ago. Yes, I can't believe how fast time flies and its already been a decade since Daddy passed away in 1995. I was only 16 going on 17 then. (Looks like the cat's out of the bag!!)
'
I remember it so clearly. How everything in my life changed, just like it happened yesterday. It was a hot afternoon on 14/2/1995. I was getting ready for tuition and Daddy was taking his bath and getting ready to take me to class. Suddenly, we heard a groan and stuff dropping in the bathroom! Daddy managed to open the door but he looked awful. He was pale and he was groaning in pain. We didn't know what happened but from the looks of the mess on the floor, we figured out that he fell down. Mummy managed to get him out of the toilet and sat him on the bed. It was the first time in my 16 years of living that I saw my Daddy cry. Not because he was sad, because he was in pain and he was holding on to Mummy, sobbing. Mummy's was trying to calm him down and I, of course panicked when she asked me to call the ambulans. Everything suddenly turn into a blur at that point, because I never dreamt that I would be in this situation and then I forgot what number to dial to get to the hospital. I just dialed 999 and got the message through. Meanwhile, Mummy was still with Daddy, comforting him - trying to get him not to exert himself. She suspected that he had a mild stroke and after the ambulance came to take him away and admitted him, we found out why.
'
Daddy loves currry. Any curry - mutton curry, chicken curry, beef curry, anything curried was his favourite, his appetizer. The day before, he had attended a good friend's daughter's wedding and he had whacked the curries like no one's business. He knew that he has high blood pressure and high cholesterol but he was on medication so he wasn't too worried since we too kept a tight reign on his food intake. Thinking that it was fine to eat the amount he ate, somehow he forgot to take his medication. And boom, the next day, he had an attack. But it wasnt a direct stroke - he had burst a bubbled vein in his brain, a condition also known as brain aneurysm which THEN caused the stroke. And because of his daily workout of weight-lifting (even when he was 61 then), the risks of that happening was higher for him and was one of the minor reasons why the vein burst. Exertion.
'
He was hospitalised in Kluang and then when his condition could not be handled by the doctors there, he was moved to Hospital Tun Aminah in JB. He had to undergo several surgeries and most of the time he was sedated. All this while, Mummy was with him, standing by his side and keeping him company. I don't know if he knew it and in fact, we'll never know but she was SO strong. She HAD to be. Not only for Daddy but also for us. I only visited him twice at the hospital, once in Kluang and the other in JB. I couldn't believe that that helpless, haggard man lying on the bed was my father. He had lost so much weight, he had a full beard and they had shaved him bald because of the surgery - I couldn't recognise him at all and I was upset because he looked that way. I didn't want my Daddy to look like that. I want to remember him as tall, strong...handsome (he was always clean shaven) and to see him like that, I couldn't take it. I can't imagine what hell my mum went through. I think she can really relate to the saying, being to hell and back. After 33 days in the hospital, he finally gave up the fight. Mummy was there when he left. 18/3/1995 - the saddest day of my life, my Daddy left us. According to Mummy, he left us earlier, all because the stupid nurse didn't do her job well enough. (Should have sued her but I guess we were just too distraught to think of such a thing at that time and after that, we just wanted to get on with life.)
'
Because he spent all his time on his back, he had developed pneumonia and had to have the phlegm sucked out every now and then. That night, guess the nurse just wanted to sleep more than anything and did a really sloppy job after my mum called her in coz she could hear Daddy struggling to breathe. Somehow, I guess God wanted him to go back home and just took him away - just like that. He left us...struggling to breathe.
'
Ever since he left us, Mummy has been EVERYTHING to me and my sis. Even as a single mum, she put me through college and gave me a luxurious allowance. (No, we are not rich but she worked that hard to give us a comforatble life.) She's always there whenever I need her, anytime of the day, she is always there for me. She stood by me when I had to make all the important decisions in my life. She is always there to support me in all my endevours. She took up the role of father AND mother and is still doing a GREAT job at it. She's independant, self-reliant, strong and above all, the kind of mother every child dreams of. She is my role model because of the qualities she has within her : caring, understanding, sensitive, talented, loving, funny, can be quite a cartoon sometimes too. She is a VERY strong woman and when I become a mummy one day, I wanna be just a fraction of what she is because I JUST don't have in me to be like her. She's truly one of a kind. Exactly how N'sync nicely puts it in 'God must have spent a little more time on you', "In all of creation, All things great and small, You are the one that surpasses them all, More precious than any diamond or pearl, They broke the mold, When you came in this world."
'
I know I don't tell her that I love her with all my heart often enough and like what I told Shan when he mentioned the same thing about his dad, I don't wanna wait until its too late. I will tell her today, that I love her and that I'm so lucky and thankful to God for giving me a mummy like her. She's the best-est friend ANY girl could ask for.
'
I LOVE YOU, MUMMY!!

It's lunch time so I normally spend my time going through other blogs. No, I'm not starving myself and neither am I on a diet. Just had a huge packet of nasi lemak (Damn, was it good! Sinful but good. YUM!) for brekkier and really, nothing else can go down my throat anymore. So here I am going through Malaysian Blogger, and I stumbled upon this - A Very Malaysian Contest. Kinda sad I missed the Penang Blogger's meeting recently. Maybe next time. :)
Anyway, after going through the post, I immediatly knew that I had to do my part in promoting this. And all this effort put in because I know that there are MANY talented writers out there who are Malaysians and can easily write about Malaysia. So why not? Give it a shot and you could be RM200 richer......all because you decided to share your exprience and spend some hour or so telling the whole world what a wonderful vacation OR part of your living here in Malaysia. :D I might even try it out mahself!
'
So what some more....write on writers, write!! :)
'
Ps. Ejrs.com, got any commission or not for promoting your contest? :D

WOW!!! CSI season finale was GREAT! Poor Rudy, from Hitz.fm missed one of the BEST episodes of CSI - thanks to my hero, Grissom!! Of course it was team effort but hey, can't deny the fact that Grissom SAVED Nick Stokes - lucky that fire ants was a bit kpc and wanted some limelight on the camera lens. Heh. :D Rudy must be SO kicking himself in the nuts for missing that episode - I wonder if they are going to air it again on Sunday? Hmm.....hopefully, then at least Rudy won't feel so bad anymore. Plus him asking the listeners to help him out telling him what happened last night, ain't working. Some macha came online and told him the WHOLE story in 2 lines and this was how it went, 'Some guy was caught and put in a casket welded underground. Then CSI came and saved him.' Bwwaaaaahahahahahaha!!!! Such a detailed explanation - even my cousin can do better than that. Aiyoo!! :p
'
Funny thing is that, I read in the News Straits Times that this particular episode was directed by Quentin Tarrantino (from the like of Kill Bill and a whole lot more) coz he's been a fan since the show started so he took up the request. They also mentioned that this episode had traits of Quentin's directing but I couldn't detect it. Wonder what seemed so alike? Guess I haven't really watched THAT many Quentin Tarrantino films to noticed this trait, you know? But to me, it seemed ALL CSI action, not much different from all the other episodes - the directing of course. :)
'
Now on to MORE devastating news, my Xander finally gave up his ghost. Sigh. Poor thing. Last night I really felt like getting online and fiddling with my template and of course, while waiting for CSI to start but since he died and REFUSED to re-start, I started watching TV at 8pm. Since it refused to restart, it was just about 7pm so I finally decided, shoot it - I'm taking it to the docs to get it some plastic surgery. An almost complete make over. So off to the docs, Xander & I went. When I reached the computer store, the owner wasn't around so I was chatting with one of the technicians and complaining about Xander. Telling him how my Xander is haunted and how he tends to restart & switch off at will. Then Shan (not MY anak, but the technician) goes on to say that its either the processor fan problem, meaning that the processor gets heated too fast because the fan is too small and not powerful enough hence, the use of OTHER outside fans OR some virus attack. He also told me that IE can easily transmit viruses through their cache memory. So he suggested that I change to Mozilla/Firefox. FINALLY, I know what this Mozillagorilla thingy is all about. Aiyoo....so blur!! And since its a better choice and can lower the risk of getting infected easily, I thought WHY NOT? :) I'm also changing my processor fan and upgrading my RAM. Damn....I hope its all worth the money (something that I don't have the privilege of growing it at home).
'
So, we'll see what happens when Xander gets back from his make over. I'll definitely be blogging more (like as if I don't blog enough already - can't beat Lilian of course!! Master Blogger...hehehe!) and being online more often, IF streamyx doesn't go jello on me. TM promotes Streamyx like mad but man, the line sucks!! *Sometimes*

ppsstt....i saw ur pic - ur hair style so cute on u!! *ssshhhhh...! dont perasan, k?* :D7/27/2005 01:37:00 PM|W|P|mistyeiz|W|P|
OMG! OMG! OMG! I can't believe it!!! The day has finally arrived.....the last day my favourite CSI team will be on TV (at least for just a while, I hope!). I will NOT be leaving my house today, even the BEST ikan bakar in Kedah couldn't possibly tear me away from the TV tonight - NO, NEVER! I shall chain myself to my sofa and not budge. Come hell or high water, I ain't goin no where! Hhhmmm.....now what time was it showing again? *Flips through Astro guidebook*
'
Anyways.....there are a couple of sites already informing people what to expect of this season's finale. I have seen the previews on Astro and I can tell you that I will be crying my eyes out by the time this episode is over. No, not because I'm a cry baby - because it looks like a rather sad ending, the kind where I'm BOUND to cry. Just like last night's episode of Boston Public. *slaps forehead* I normally don't watch it but I did last night (or was it the night before, dunno...cant remember.) Anyway, it was at the end, when the big guy a.k.a the Principle was reading this letter from this kid he coached and kinda took a liking to. Treated him like his own son too. But sadly, despite all the hard work the big guy put in, the kid enlisted in the army and got killed in Iraq, I think. So that letter was the LAST letter Billy Deegan (the kid) wrote to the big guy and the thing that touched my heart and made me sniff (had to control macho la!), was that Billy said that the big guy was the only father he ever knew. And I was like, 'Awwwww......' *sniff sniff*
'
But anyhow, coming back to CSI, I didnt want to read what those people had written because I didnt want to spoil the whole show. BUT if you are interested to know about it.....knock yourselves out. :)
'
Gonna miss you guys, Grissom & gang. Sigh. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!! *sob sob* Sobbing

Well, I guess it was about time I changed the outlook of my blog. I'm not 100% happy with it but so far, I think its ok. I decided to change the WHOLE layout thanks to Lilian (no need to provide link liow - you all know her far too well already!! Heh.) Looks like she's kinda becoming my NEW sifu. Prof Liew has to buck up, other wise he might just lose a student. Hehehe!! :)

Well, I haven't yet dabbled with WP.....was just checking out the site and I must admit that it looks VERY VERY interesting but before I venture into that, I better take a good look at my pc and see what's really wrong with it. Imagine being SO engrossed in trying to study WP and suddenly, poof!! Everything goes off.....THAT would certainly piss me off.

Oy......my stupid PC at home is haunted! Really.....either that or its got a MAJOR hot-cold attitude problem. We're fine the moment it starts up.....then maximum 2 hours using it, it will either automatically restart or worst case scenario - just die. Then REFUSES to start up again.
'
I've sent it for 'check-ups' and the pc doc says that it's fine - everything's fine. From the power supply right down to all the sockets - its FINE. F-I-N-E!!!! Then why la like this???
'
Really puts a damper on my spirit and kills my inspiration if I get any when I'm at home. I always think that I'll keep my thoughts till I get home to blog it but THEN......when this crap happens, raelly pisses me off!! AAARRRRGgggghhhhh!!
'
There also goes my chance to let a helping hand to the up-coming Blogathon. Sigh. I feel that I COULD see this through BUT with my pathetic PC dying on me every now and then and also not knowing if I can come up with idea to write about for 24 hours, I'm not too sure anymore. :(

See la how....

It looks bigger than an unused tampon - but I can feel mini tampons, I cannot feel the cup at all. Many women who use the cup found out about it because they cannot use tampons.

Tan - are you a guy? The blood collects in a cup and you simply empty out the liquid.

*Totally contradicting the intention of my post but I just thought it as cool*
Courtesy of Dan_is_a_kOolKid
Seeing that both Yee Wei (can't find that post where YW said something about my thoughts on this matter) & Shan are SO interested to know what I think in this rather TABOO topic, I decided pour out my two cents and show the world my perception of things, both religious & world wise. I have to refer back to my comments on Mr. Gorgeous-but-me-thinks-he's-gay. I will admit that my initial reaction was, 'OMG!!! He's SO gorgeous!!!'. I still have NO idea who this man is but hell, I think he can rock the boat of any 100% pure red-hot blooded woman. But the funny thing about gorgeous guys is that quite a large majority of them are GAY. Let's us TOTALLY honest here (No need to pretend like as if you are all angels out there, k?), the internet is FILLED with porn and I'm pretty sure that most gay sites are FILLED with gorgeous gay guys. Makes me wanna cry sometimes to know that these hunks with ANOTHER hunk. How sad is that???? *shakes head* Such a waste indeed. Sometimes I really do wonder why do such feelings of wanting to be gay or lebsian or bisexuals (which I think is the best - be a pendulum, swing both ways n u get but the best of both worlds) even exists. Now, God made men and women so that they would join together one day and bring forth more offsprings. Thus, contributing to the continuous existence of men and women in this world. I believe that THAT, is the basics or the foundation of any marriage, whatever religion you are. Of course, it is also because you love each other and want to spend the rest of your remainding lives together. Who wouldn't want that, right? BUT...........somewhere along the way, something went terribly wrong. Men started doing men, and women started doing women. And just to life more interesting & spicy, people also started having threesomes, gang bangs and orgies (Definition : As a noun (ORGY), a wild gathering involving excessive drinking and promiscuity, or a secret rite in the cults of ancient Greek or Roman deities involving singing and dancing and drinking and sexual activity). This was DEFINITELY not one of God's plans. I say this because its clearly stated in the Bible that, "And if a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.", Leviticus 20:13 AND in Romans 1:27, ".....and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another, men with men working unseemliness, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was due." So, there is no mistake that God is TOTALLY against the idea of homosexuality. He certainly did not create it. And so, He will not condone it either.
'
I posts this question before, about why did God allowed the human feelings of wanting to be something that you're not, to happen? To even exists, in fact. He had the power to banish it all away - in fact if He did, we wouldn't have gay demonstrations and the problem (to some) of same gender marriages which now rule the media. Politics are getting involved, the church is getting involved, families are being torn apart by this whole mass media front of lesbians and gays. I'm beginning to think that the whole idea of homosexuality actually started when God gave us each the choice. As a friend, WingFiea mentioned, "God could banish homosexuality. But He doesn't because God gives us free will...a right to choose to follow Him or to follow the desires of our flesh. Just because it's out there in the world doesn't mean God is ignoring it, doesnt' care about it, or even approves of it. We will always be sinful by nature, but He also tells us we can overcome any kind of temptation...including sexual desires that are not natural, or even the desires to lie or eat more than we should." Very nicely put across and I agree. Another friend, Dan_is_a_kOolKid mentioned that, "I would not agree with anyone who says that homosexuals are born gay...there is no gay gene. It is a perversion that is learned. The Bible speaks of men leaving natural relations for unnatural ones and lay with other men. They werent born that way, they became more perverse and left Gods design of man and woman and went their own way". Simply meaning to say that they CHOSE to go against the ways of nature and how it is SUPPOSE to be.
'
Not only is God against it, even our government is against homosexuality as seen here and here. Another interesting site is about asian gays - this is more of a survey site. I'm not too sure why the focus is mainly on men. I haven't figured that one out yet - but I'll let you know if something comes to mind. (Maybe because women look better going at it??? Who knows...) So where does that leave our special friends? Most of them are faced with a dilemma. Not only are they having problems with religion, the government, even the family may also create worst scenarios as well. So now, they have to deal with religion, the government, the family AND their (sometimes) confused selves.
' I, for one have nothing against homosexuals. In fact, I have a few friends who are just like that and I can assure you that they are such WONDERFUL people!! They are able to provide you with that special lasting friendship AND at the same time, the perfect partner to take along for shopping for the perfect annual dinner dress. But I do have mixed emotion about this whole gay & lesbian thing in general. One part of me thinks that its not right for a man to marry a man (same goes for women) because this union could never produce offsprings unless through adoption, which I know in some places is NOT a problem (but definitely not in Malaysia, for sure). On the other hand, sometimes I think that if a man loves another man n same goes for a woman, why stop these feelings? Why put up a barricade between two PEOPLE who love each other? Why stop a beautiful thing from happening? Plus the sex is not a problem seeing that humans can obviously adapt to the environment and make use of nature in order to serve their needs. I believe the only thing that is being an obstacle in this search for 'true happiness' is the law (both religion & governmental) as I mentioned above.
'
And what about being bi-sexual, you say? Well, I think thats the best!! Heh. You swing both ways and you get the best of BOTH worlds. You marry a man but you still get to have some fun with you gf/bf - not like as if I would have the guts to do so!!! :D I do SO want to say hello to St. Peter, the guy manning Pearly Gates, you know? :D But I can't but help be BI-CURIOUS. Wonder what I'd do is a lesbian walked up to me and started chatting me up? Hmmmm.... I bet it runs through everyone's mind. No need to be shy-shy.
'
Metrosexuals? Well, The Calico Cat explains it quite nicely and the only reason why I said that people can accidentally assume metrosexuals to BE homosexuals is because it means "an urban male with a heterosexual orientation who rejects many macho attributes often linked to masculinity. He adopts many traits often associated with heterosexual females and gay males -- e.g. expensive hair care, stylish clothes. " (Taken from Glossary of Sexual Terms) OR could also similarly mean "A straight man who embraces the homosexual lifestyle, i.e. refined tastes in clothing, excessive use of designer hygiene products, etc. Usually is on the brink of homosexuality. Eg. Mike has become a metrosexual after shaving off his stubble and using expensive skin products to soften his cherubic facial features." (Taken from Urban Dictionary).

hehe... well it does look well researched so good work Yvy!! keep it up!! cheers!!7/25/2005 10:32:00 PM|W|P|Blogger Amara|W|P|This is how I see it. God created love and created us. So, I can't see how it is wrong to love another regardless of sexuality. And I don't think it is equally fair for us to assume what God wants considering how anyone can distort what is written in the Bible to suit their own needs. One thing you can't discount, is thy shalt love thy neighbor. Didn't specifically say how or way. Tolerance is a vital issue here. And as much as I may make comments here and there about gay men or women - it is not because I have an issue of how they have sex with' it's more like I have an issue with a gay men going out of his way to be overtly feminine and a women being overtly butch (regardless of how I try not to judge).

As for the government against homosexuality -well, I reckon that the government is against anything that appears like freedom of choice regardless of what's written in the constitution. Besides, what does the government really know about society? If you asked me, I would say they are way out of touch with the average guy.

On the other hand, I do realize that you are just tossing a thought across and not so much an opinion. But just remember one thing, not everyone is religious or christian or even pro-government/society.

VERY interesting, i tell u. its just that ppl are not so agressive back here, like fighting for their rights n what not - obviously because they know its gonna like fall on deaf ears n most likely fighting a losing battle.

anon : i expected this actually, i knew SOMEONE would say something interesting like u did. :) o well, let me put this way to you - plain n simple, this is MY blog, MY space, so whatever i choose to relate to or whoever/whatever i choose to talk abt is (simply put)MY business. n if it means that much to you - since you brought it up, its not "infactuation with that religion" (what the hell are u getting at by saying 'THAT religion'?), it is because its the only one i know. now, why wud i wanna start quoting from other religions which i am not particularly familiar WITH??? plus, if ppl do not know abt 'THAT' religion, then i guess u can say that they have been educated. now, thats not that bad is it? ;p

shan : thank u! :)

amara : well thank God SOMEONE realise that i was merely tossing the idea/opinion around. i'm not fight for nor against homosexuals n i kinda know where u stand so i understand what u're getting at. i guess that must b the reason why ppl find it so hard to talk abt this topic - kinda sensitive to some people n to others, maybe just an eye opener. n like i mentioned to anon up there, i only brought in religion BECAUSE it is connected n somehow Christianity and Islam seem to be the only 2 religions (that i know of) that is dead against homosexuals. n i seriously dont think i'm far off the target on this one. :)7/26/2005 02:27:00 PM|W|P|Blogger 5xmom ~chanlilian.net~|W|P|Hahaha, I see this coming. Let me put another dua sen here. There is nothing wrong with loving someone of the same sex but if it goes as far as having a sexual relationship, then, it is against ALL religions. So, we mortals musn't use the excuse of 'oh, love your neighbour as you love yourself' to get into same sex sexual relationship, I suppose. After all, in the Quran and Bible, we have clearly seen what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah.

And to some of you, if you wish to ignore what the Bible or Quran or any religious books teachings, why bother to take what mistyeiz said so personally? She is just tossing her thoughts around. Right mystyeiz?

Was checking out Kucing's site as usual and was reading her latest about the mega sales starting tomorrow. What is it with (most) women and sales huh? I really dont get it. In fact, a more appropriate question would be, what is it with (most) women and SHOPPING? Hmm...see, all the eyes pop out already. :D But seriously, SO many people including Kucing of course is SO looking forward to the mega sales to buy stuff that they have been eyeing but too expensive and of course, hoping to get it now. But knowing the sales tactic of most shopping complexes, I bet what most of them do is increase the price by 50% and then, slash it down by 50%, coming back to the original price. Meaning to say that, IF you havent done your survey properly or maintain some sort of committment to the stuff you intent to purchase, you will most likely be fooled.
'
Now, coming back to what I think about shopping. Seriously, I think shopping is a waste of time. No, really. I can proudly stand up tall and say that I really dislike shopping and I only do it IF I have no choice, forced to. Meaning to say that, if I wanted something or there's a function and I need clothes/shoes - only then would I torture myself with shopping.
'
I know lots of women who could just up and say, 'I'm bored, let's go shopping!' and then end up walking all over the HUGE shopping complex, konon la want to BUY something but actually end up not buying a SINGLE thing. Some people love window shopping - another kind of shopping I totally abhor. Why do some women see it fitting to just walk all over the supermarket, looking at every single thing, trying on almost EVERY pair of shoes in the shoe store and then end up not buying a single thing??? Whats with that insanity??? And this so-called women's favourite past time is SO tiring. If you really clock the time spent walking about and how far you've been walking, you'd be suprised at how many miles you'd have walked in that ONE shopping session. Been there, done that and swore never to do it again!
'
You wanna know my tactic for shopping? Let me run it through you :-
1. Before leaving for the supermarket, determine what items to buy. Be specific about said item i.e. high heel shoes, beige in colour.
2. Upon reaching the supermarket, DIRECTLY go to the first store OR at the most a specific favourite store like Vinci or Stefano or Bonia or whatever and look for said item. Eg. I'm looking for a beige pair of high heel shoes at Bonia so I go DIRECTLY to Bonia, so stop overs along the way.
3. Target for ONLY beige high heel shoes. Pay no attention to other attractive but not necessary pairs of shoes.
4. Try on the chosen designs and if happy, buy. If not, move on to next store.
5. Upon succesfully purchasing the so called pair of shoes. No more shoe shopping OR window shoe shopping for the day. Move on to the next item on the list. There is no need to enter another shoe store only to feel devastated and disappointed because you didnt give one other shoe store a chance. What you dont know, wont hurt you. Thus, ignorance is BLISS.
'
My tolerance level for shopping is VERY low. After 3 failed attempts of finding the right pair of shoes, the mission is abandoned. I shop fast and I do not like to linger too long in any one shop. Wasting time.
'
When it comes to clothes, thats a major headache for me because I'm fussy and I'm huge. So all Hong Kong style and free size blouses DO NOT fit me (I think the term 'free size' is bing overrated - really!). Thus, all free size blouses do not get any of my attention. This in turn leaves me with hardly any choices left BUT to get my clothes tailor made. So much for being tall AND huge. Certainly not the right combination to have when most of the girls around me are either small, tiny and short. Even if they are large, they are still short. Sigh. Well, at least shorter than I am anyway. :)
'
I guess my man is pretty happy about that. And like I mentioned in Kucing's comment box, I can proudly say that I'm one of those almost or maybe even already extinct female species around. If there are any others like me, I think we should form some sort of elite club. Lol!!
'
And to all those happy shoppers (yea right!!) who are waiting to be a part of the hordes of people going to the sales tomorrow, happy shopping coz you wont find me in there!! :D
|W|P|112201971502206447|W|P|Shop till I drop? Nup...not moi.|W|P|7/22/2005 06:25:00 PM|W|P|Blogger Kucing Gatal|W|P|Haha i hear you about those Hong Kong sizes, I also have problems fitting into them. They seem to get smaller every year! As for my shopping binge, actually this is the first time this year I'm going on a good shopping spree. And I've waited and waited for the sales so I can enjoy the discounts. I hate going to malls on weekends because of crowds, I'd rather go sit at some cafe and watch the world go by. But yeah, most women do love their shopping! And it's been proven that shopping helps to keep us mentally alert, could be the reason why women outlive men ;)7/23/2005 12:07:00 AM|W|P|Blogger Lao Chen|W|P|Hehe... I don't fancy shopping too.

My target is to blog one post a day from Monday to Friday but have been just too busy with a current system project (being a project manager does not help much), just too tired to think what to write and do the posting (you also will noticed that I am not that creative too...tired, tired)

When it comes to shopping and getting the pocket burned, it depends what is being shopped. If it is about a car accessory, I don't mind spending even up to RM1,500 (I did that once..went to replace my car horn but ended changing my entire ICE system for a cool RM2,000 cash) but it comes to my wife's shopping (for clothes), I can be very stingy. So evil of me!7/22/2005 12:39:00 PM|W|P|mistyeiz|W|P|

Shorty's got helluva way to make my day and reading this off her blog reminds me of what kids (and some adults) do when they KNOW they got a booger stuck up their noses and you JUST gotta get it out or else....... and dont you pretend you dont do it coz you KNOW you do. Which technique do you normally use??? :D HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
'
*Please be warned that from here on, things will get DISGUSTING.*
'
(taken off Amara's site)
NOSE PICKING GLOSSARY (but before we begin: the true height of selfishness is picking your nose and eating it and NOT offering!)...yo, don't try to front like it's gloomy or gray. 'cuz we all pick our boogers some time of the day. whether out in the open, or on a sneak tip. With a finger, a tissue or even a Q-Tip.....go up your nose and pick yourself up a winner.
"
The Kiddie Pick
When you're by yourself adn uninhibitedly twist your forefinger into your nostril with childlike joy and freedom. And the best part is that there is no time limit
'
Camouflaged Kiddie Pick
When, in the presence of other people, you wrap your forefinger in a tissue. Then thurst it in deep and hold back a grin.
'
Fake Nose Scratch
When you make-believe you have got an itch but you're really trolling the nostril edge for stray boogers
'
Making A Meal Out Of It
You do it so furiously, and for so long, you're probably entitled for dessert.
'
Suprise Pickings
When a sneeze or laugh causes snot to come hurtling out of your nose, and you have to gracefully clean it of your shirt(if you can and it doesnt stick or STAIN your shirt)
'
Pick Your Brains
The kind done in private, where your finger goes in so far - it passes the septum
'
Pick and Roll
Self-explanotory
'
Pick & Flick (Added by yours truly)
You kinda (try to) do it in private and when you succeed in getting it out, someone you wanna get even with, walks by. You aim, then you do THE do. But sometimes you dont really aim to flick, just that the other person happened to walk by at the wrong time, and wrong place. *shrugs* Too bad, I'd say.
*My FAVOURTIE especially if I wanna get back at my sis!!! Haven't been that bad YET but darn it, my aiming is bad!!! Sigh.
'
Pick and Stick
You wanted to be a 'pick and flick' but it stubbornly clings to your fingertip.
'
Paydirt
The kind where you remove a piece of snot so big, it improves your breathing by like 90%.

Going through BJ's post on cars and speed today, reminded me of what I saw early this morning on the way to work.
'
As I entered the the industrial estate, there was a LONG line of cars, at least 1km long. At first I thought there was some absurb police road block and I was thinking, 'Not at THIS time of the day, please!!! I'm gonna be late for work!!!!'. But the cars slowly inched along and the closer I got, the visible blinking/spinning red-yellow began to show. I knew from then on, it was an accident. I think what made matters worst was the fact that there were SO many 'spectators' PLUS all the drivers of the cars in line, stopped to take a peek (even yours truly) - I mean, how could I NOT? It was just THERE. No way I could have NOT seen what happened.
'
Well, actually I didn't see that much because I was rushing to get to office but the sight I saw was enough to remind me that I really don't need to speed and speed indeed KILLS. On the road, a body (so far unknown whether male or female but rumored to be a Malay woman since she was in a baju kurung) was lying obviously lifeless because it was covered with that infamous black plastic cover. It was quite a bad accident since *Details provided after this maybe grotesque to some. You have been informed* there was evidence of the body actually knocked down and then dragged on the road. VERY obvious trail of blood. And by evidence I mean, pieces of flesh (maybe even brains) and a whole lot of blood, as I mentioned earlier. I also believe that the victim was a motorcyclist as the helmet was knocked off and the vehicle who hit her, was a Satria.
'
I'm not here to blame this accident and say that the cause of this accident was speed but I'm pretty sure that it was, seeing that this road is a long stretch of straight road without any road bumps and we know how *some* people LOVE speed and fast driving (not necessarily safe though). On the other hand, I could also blame the motorcyslist for being careless like how MOST motorcyclists are. Like how they behave recklessly on the road as if they owned the road or better yet, that 'my grandfather's road' syndrome. You've seen it, I've seen it - we're ALL seen it. Who's really at fault - I really don't know, at least not at this point. *Poor body is STILL lying on the road, for pete's sake!!*
'
Bottom line is, some of us may love speed and driving fast, some of us drive slow, and we may all think that we are safe drivers. But seriously, I really don't believe in such a thing. We may be careful but when the other is not, and that still leaves us at risk. The ability to drive fast, long distance or whatever will not guarantee you a safe journey if other drivers on the road are reckless. And now that I've run of things to say, I'm not really sure what my points is BUT all I know is, speed is SO not good.
'
And frankly, why do people feel the need to drive fast in the first place???? *sigh*
Edited to add : After reading Shan's comment, I kinda realise that Hitz.fm is doing a good job on their advert about speed driving. How a master's graduate wastes his life away by speeding n getting killed on the road n how his loved ones find his mangled body infested with flies like a roadkill...VERY strong approach but VERY good move. Sometimes people don't realise the impact or consequences they have to face because they don't really realise the actually outcome. Only when highlighted, will people take note.

' The Holy Alphabets (Nicely penned down in my fav writing style - a POEM) :D ' A lthough things are not perfect B ecause of trial or pain C ontinue in thanksgiving D o not begin to blame E ven when the times are hard F ierce winds are bound to blow G od is forever able H old on to what you know I magine life without His love J oy would cease to be K eep thanking Him for all the things L ove imparts to thee M ove out of "Camp Complaining" N o weapon that is known O n earth can yield the power P raise can do alone Q uit looking at the future R edeem the time at hand S tart every day with worship T o "thank" is a command U ntil we see Him coming V ictorious in the sky W e'll run the race with gratitude X alting God most high Y es, there'll be good times and yes some will be bad, but... Z ion waits in glory...where none are ever sad! ' It is true that I am too blessed to be stressed. Despite being a typical Catholic who continues to sin, each and everyday...the one thing I realise is that the shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between my knees and the floor. ' For the one who kneels to the Lord can stand up to anything. Indeed, it is easier said that done but God gave me the strength to fight the fight and push temptations away as it rears its ugly head at me every hour, every day. I do not pray for my problems to go away, I pray for the strength to fight those problem today and to be stronger to face worst problems in the future. ' And this I learnt not from the Bible but from a good friend who has indeed been forced to face numerous problems which are FAR beyond my comprehension but can still smile and be happy despite it all. What more someone like me? '

Wahlau!!! What a weekend.....so dasyat until I had to wait till now to write about it. Too busy at work and hardly had time to curi-curi write in the office. Too long a story. :D
'
Since I still had my cash vouchers for Northam Hotel, I decided to take my 2 best buddies from college, SS & N and have us a jolly good time. SS arrived from Klang early Saturday morning (try 1am for early) and I fetched her at Juru toll and we were to meet N in Penang that afternoon. Her cravings for Penang food must have really been BAD for the first thing she said in the morning was, 'Let's go for breakfast la!! Please la......please la. I miss Penang food. Please la....' - gosh, talk about desperate for food. LOL!! So, the first thing we did was go for dim sum with mum and SS.
'
We shot off for Penang right after brekkie to meet N at the hotel. For me, the last time I saw N was last year when he came down for the holidays from Moscow. Being the sweety he is, he brought me loads of postcards, phonecards and pictures. And since he still is a sweety, this time, he brought me THREE fridge magnets!! WOOOHOOOO!!! Happy Yvy! :D And for SS, the last time she met him was some 7 years ago while we were all still in college (GAWD, that kinda makes me feel darn freaking OLD!) and you can imagine the amount of noise these people made when they saw each other!!! OMG......like some major headless chicken party going on!!! Lol.
'
Immediately after checking in, we sat our sweet-selves down and began updating each other. But seeing that we hadn't had lunch yet and these people where like craving for Penang food (maklumla SS was living ALL her life in Penang but just moved to Klang recently and N's been in Russia for the past year), we raced to the nearest nasi kandar shop, Khaleel along Gurney Drive and I bet food never tasted so heavenly to them up till that point. You could actually hear them sigh blissfully after each mouthful of nasi kandar - crazy people! As for me, no big deal la...have one right in town, some 5 minutes away from home. Before long , we were all stuffed. After that, we went to One Stop to....what else, visit my FAV stop lot - Chameleon. Those Penangites will know why....heheh, need no introduction. We spent quite some time at One Stop looking at costume jewellery and stuff. And was almost teatime by the time we left. As we were walking to my car, something glittering shone in my eyes. I looked down and couldn't believe my eyes - 3 rings!! 3 gold rings...I bent down, (had to dig a bit) and scooped up the rings. They were PURE gold! We quickly jumped into the car and all of us were chattering at once. All I heard was, 'Yada, yada...rings, bla bla bla, heavy, bla bla bla....'. It went on a while until I decided to stop it. We weren't even sure if they were gold or not until N took a close look and saw that it was - 916. Not bad I was thinking, I didn't really know what to do with it. I'd be stupid to give it up at the police station - I bet the policemen would have thought that I was some stupid nut to give up something like that. Anyways, called my mum and told her about it.
'
She, of course was hyper excited about the whole thing. But I told her that it may not be gold. Just in case. Malula if its not, right? Anyway, right after that piece of adventure, we made out way to Sam's Batik House at Penang Road. What a WONDERFUL place!!!! If you're into East India/British India type of clothes, this is the place to be at. Same kinda style and taste but at half or less than half the price!! I finally bought me my 'fisherman's pants' but they call it 'happy pants'. Well, I'm not complaining coz it made me happy since I finally found a pair which was at a reasonable price after MANY MANY years. :D Happy Yvy!! Definitely on my shopping list for clothes next time. Right after Sam's, we HAD to have more food. We crossed over to Kayu Nasi Kandar and had teh tarik (what's new for me) and SS ordered roti tisu (Made using the roti canai flour but spread out VERY VERY thinly before cooking and once cooked, its rolled up and sweetened condensed milk is poured slightly at the top to give it some sweetness) . When the waiter brought it, I swear I wished I brought my camera. The roti was HUGE......SUPER DUPER HUGE! It was so HIGH/TALL whatever you wanna call it. At least 2 feet long.......at least! I was speechless for a moment, but burst out laughing coz I couldn't take the SHOCKED look on SS face. She looked at me, looked at the roti and back at me, speechless!! A real classic look, if only my camera was with me, IF ONLY. Sigh.
'
After mu-mum, we went back to the hotel and did ourselves a fashion show. Me parading in my happy pants, N in his chinese kung fu suit (he bought 2 pairs) and SS in her fringe wrap around skirt. And then, we talked and we talked and we talked......we talked for at least 4 hours before we realized that we hadn't had dinner yet. So we got off our butts and made our way to where else but Northam Beach Cafe. I just cant get over how good the oysters are there. Of course I recommended it and we of course had it together with some loh bak, satay and ikan bakar (spicy grilled fish). We were eating like as if there was no tomorrow. There goes my dairy diet out the window and into the sea by Gurney Drive. Sigh. By the time we finished out food and went back to the hotel, its was already late, about 11.30pm or so. The thought of clubbing crossed our minds but to think that by the time we get dressed up and pretty ourselves, it would be too late so we did the next best thing - jump into the jacuzzi in the room!! Yup...its true, we were crazy and small enough (NOT!) to fit into the jacuzzi. Its true that Northam has the LARGEST bath tub of all and darn it, we had to make FULL use of it. Was so funny to see 3 baby elephants stuffing themselves in that large tub, but when all's said and done, it was fun. And that was the only thing that mattered to us. :D We only went to bed at about 2am.
'
The next day after having brekkie in the hotel, I extended out room to 6pm so we would have the whole day to ourselves. By the time we got dressed and ready to go out, it was ALMOST lunch time but since we weren't that hungry, we just got into the car and started driving around. Not really knowing where to go, we decided to go for lunch somewhere in Green Lane and we had the famous chee cheong fun. I really didn't expect it to be good but man, it was DELICIOUS!!!! Must eat again. :D After 'lunch', we decided to go to the beach but along the way, it started to drizzle but we took our chances and well, it was a good decision. The weather was perfect and we found a super spot just behind Naza Hotel. The beach was empty so we were pretty much alone except for maybe 2 kids running around and this old man who kept walking up and down the beach collecting mussels (?). Well, it looked like mussels to me anyway, really huge mutated ones too. I was thinking how nice it would be if he could pick up the rubbish that he saw and ignorantly passed by as he walked up and down the beach collecting his loot. Sigh.
'
We lepak-ed there till about 3.30pm when it started to get dark. We quickly packed up and headed back to Northam to start packing up to check out at 6pm. By 6pm, we were out of the hotel and still craving for food (Yes, I'll admit it. We REALLY went on an eating binge. Really.) , we ended up in where else but Gurney Drive. Not being a fan of laksa, I found myself looking forward to eating it and after arguing which shop was nicer, N won and we had his choice of laksa and SS had her fav, lok-lok (assortment of fish balls, innards, tofu & cockels cooked in boiling water, drained dry and dipping sauce is given OR poured on top). Then it started to drizzle again. :( We hurried through our food only to realize that we got conned by the rain. But not willing to take the risk of it actually pouring down and still not satisfied with the food (are you even surprised???), we drove to Penang Road and down Dato' Koyah to have SS's roti john (SS and her rotis!! Roti John is a hot dog bun flattened out, with a piece of burger meat on top of the bun and 2 bull's eye eggs on top of the meat). Darn good to eat too!! We went our separate ways at 8pm. N pushed off for home and the both of us, towards Juru toll to wait for her pal to fetch her.
'
I finally reached home at 11pm, poop-ed but very happy and satisfied. Never realize how fast time flew by and the amount of food I consumed!! *shakes head* But its not often and somehow, that is my only consolation. I'm planning to meet up with N before he leaves for Moscow this Sunday and SS is planning to come down again in September for my birthday. I better start losing the weight I put on over the weekend before SS comes over coz I just KNOW I'm gonna get stuffed again!! Lol......Was a GREAT WEEKEND!!
"
Ps. SS got me a gift - a nice big coffee mug for office and I'm using it now. :D Happy Yvy!!
'
Pps. Remember those gold rings I found, I (my mum actually, I just tumpang only) bought the lottery and I......STRUCK!!!!! WOOHOOOO......not much la, but still....WOOOOHOOOOO!!! :D VERY VERY happy Yvy!! :D Second time lucky....don't really buy numbers, but sometimes once a green moon, just try my luck la. If and only if something strikes my mind. Otherwise, I find it really a waste of money. Don't make it a habit.

I always tell myself that I'm always up to learning new things everyday. Well, guess what?? This just in the mail and I have been educated on the realy meanings behind these COMMON words :- ' 1. MOPED is the short term for 'Motorized Pedaling'. *Haven't even heard the word MOPED nor used in it this context. I used to think moped was something like walking around upset. O well, goes to show... 2. POP MUSIC is 'Popular Music' shortened. 3. BUS is the short term for 'Omnibus' that means everybody. *Really?? HHmmm.... 4. FORTNIGHT comes from 'Fourteen Nights' (Two Weeks). 5. DRAWING ROOM was actually a 'withdrawing room' where people withdrew after Dinner. Later the prefix 'with' was dropped. 6. NEWS refers to information from Four directions : N, E, W and S. *This is nice. 7. AG-MARK, which some products bear, stems from 'Agricultural Marketing'. *Huh? 8. JOURNAL is a diary that tells about 'Journey for a day' during each day's business. 9. QUEUE comes from 'Queen's Quest'. Long back a long row of people as waiting to see the Queen. Someone made the comment Queen's Quest. *Hhhmmmm....didn't quite get this though. :( 10. TIPS come from 'To Insure Prompt Service'. In olden days to get Prompt service from servants in an inn, travelers used to drop coins in a Box on which was written 'To Insure Prompt Service'. This gave rise to the custom of Tips. 11. JEEP is a vehicle with unique Gear system. It was invented during World War II (1939-1945). It was named 'General Purpose Vehicle (GP)'. GP was changed into JEEP later.
And thanks to Chelle, I just HAD to get myself into this. From the looks of things, I think my closet's slowly becoming smaller by the day. :D

Hehe....this is not usual my cuppa but I couldn't help but wonder if our Malaysian community have such interesting lifestyles. O yea, you have LOADS of blogs online which are erotica based (the usual wham, bam, thank you ma'am action) and I can even list down a few for you but that would take the fun out of actually taking the time to search for them in the firs place, no? :) Anyway, I was just going through my other frequent 'hang-out' which is at NV and one of the groups had this description on what bondage is all about. In general that means BDSM (Bondage, discipline, sadomasochism). ' I think many people out there are interested in this but are just too shy to come out and say it. And even if they were practising it (behind closed doors I hope), I bet no mention of is ever done outside. I wonder why? Is it wrong? Is it disgusting? Is it so horrible? Is it degrading? I don't think so....I personally think that its because of our mindset. I think we are somehow programmed, moulded to think that this act of 'violence' is something out of the normal, something not Malaysianised and shouldn't be practiced by us Malaysians. I also think its because we are not daring enough to go forth and try new things, be different. Frankly, I really cant think of any other valid reason. By the way, I do not think that BDSM is a western culture (I do have to research this bit a little more so I"ll keep you updated on it) so you cannot blame them nor start to point finger either. I'll admit that I've stumbled upon a couple of x- rated blogs and even read them. But let me tell you, its all the same ol' thing. Just differently written, a little twist here and there especially where location is concerned, and that's about it. Even under a pseudonym, there is no mention of bondage. Funny innit? I'm REALLY curious to know why....why the secrecy? Or why isn't it practiced? ' I'll also admit that I cant help but be fascinated by the whole art of bondage but at the same time, it really scares the crap out of me! I think its really great to be able to incorporate different types of playtime in any love making sessions (note that I said LOVE MAKING and not sex coz I think its REALLY 2 different acts all together no matter WHAT your definitions is). I wished I could say that I had the chance to experience this but sadly, I have none. And I don't really know if I'll ever sum up the courage to plunge into it when the time comes. But its really funny how a little pain is always pleasurable and in a strange and bizarre way, heightens our senses (Info gathered thanks to a VERY dependable source) . I'm not sure HOW or WHY this happens but it does.... :D ' Anyway, before things get a wee bit out of hand, I'm-a signing off with a little insight of what bondage is all about. If you've tried it, would love to hear about it. :P
'
Bondage Lovers!
Bondage is where one person is restrained by another and usually at their mercy. Once a person is restrained, a number of other sexually arousing activities may follow, which can range from tickling and feathers to various forms of punishment incorporating paddles, whips, nipple clamps, and other devices. For the most part, bondage and associated activities are a stylized form of fantasy play, where the bondage role players often negotiate ahead of time the rules of the bondage fantasy play so that the bondage or BDSM activities remain consensual between the partners. Often the participants in bondage play create a safeword to indicate that the dominatrix has pushed the limits of the submissive. A safeword is a word that is out of context with the fantasy bondage scene and has a definite meaning of "STOP". Typically, one safeword is used to end the bondage playing, while another is used to tone things down in the bondage fantasy. Safewords are very important part of bondage or bdsm play, and must be taken seriously. It is important during bondage play to make sure that your partner is not so tightly bound that their circulation is cut off and just in case the bondage play becomes too intense or painful, have a pair of scissors on hand to cut your bondage partner free quickly. Try to avoid bondage play that ties things around the neck and never cover the mouth or nose in a way that could impair breathing. The number one reported cause of injury during bondage play is falling due to an inability to break one's fall. With a little common sense, bondage can be a safe and arousing form of play. Bondage or any other BDSM activities should be introduced slowly into your sex play. Try starting with simple bondage using soft materials (such as soft rope or fleece padded cuffs) where arms are perhaps secured behind their back. If the bondage fantasy was mutually enjoyed, experiment with more elaborate bondage, such as securing arms and legs. From that point perhaps incorporate bondage to a stationary object such as a bed or perhaps introduce a blindfold. Building trust for this type of bondage play is essential, and you should not rush into serious bondage play if your partner is not willing. '
Ps. Ok, I'll 'fess up - just ONE site ; ) '

I was going through Sharon's blog and stumbled upon a particular post about how some of her poems got rejected by the publisher. You know, this is EXACTLY the reason why I dont think I would ever have the guts to try and get my poems published. What if people laughed at them? What if I'm not good enough for the publishers? I find it so hard to better myself at poetry because I have no means of doing it. I want to know what I've done wrong so that I can continue to improve myself. I look at it as an on-going process. How I started writing...heh, just because I was under severe depression.
'
I've been (accidently) writing poems since 2003 after a pretty bad break up and was sourcing for ways to express my anger, sadness, heartache, relief - pretty much whatever I felt at the point of my life and I suddenly realise that the best way was to pen them down. Suprisingly, it worked wonders for my soul and particularly my mental state as I was able to let it all out. I really felt good after that and till today, I still write out my feelings, be it happy thoughts, sad thoughts, whatever I feel inside. It's really good - you should try it some day. And NO, poetry is NOT sissy. I know lots of people think that, I used to be one of those people until I realise the positive effect it had on me and how powerful some poems can be. The pen is mightier than the sword.
'
Sadly, I've also noticed that the Malaysian community is not really into poetry. And like what Sharon mentioned to me, it is most likely because it is not being exposed to the children at school. Children can write such beautiful poem, very sweet, direct and innocent ones. One such child was Mattie Stepanek. He wrote lots of poems in his short life time. Today, although he's gone 'home', his poems still remain very much alive.
'
It's about time we change our mindset.

Heartsong I have a song, deep in my heart,
And only I can hear it.
If I close my eyes and sit very still
It is so easy to listen to my song.
When my eyes are open and
I am so busy and moving and busy,
If I take time and listen very hard,
I can still hear my Heartsong.
It makes me feel happy.
Happier than ever.
Happier than everywhere
And everything and everyone
In the whole wide world
Happy like thinking about
Going to Heaven when I die.
My Heartsong sounds like this: I love you! I love you!
How happy you can be!
How happy you can make
The whole world be!
'
And sometimes it's other
Tunes and words, too,
But it always sings the
Same special feeling to me.
It makes me think of Jamie, and Katie and Stevie,
And other wonderful things.
'
This is my special song.
But do you know what?
All people have a special song
Inside their hearts!
Everyone in the whole wide world
Has a special Heartsong.
If you believe in magical, musical hearts,
And if you believe you can be happy,
Then you, too, will hear your song. March 1996© Matthew Joseph Thaddeus

Poetry comes from the heart, and is very personal to the author. If others don't like it, so be it, but you should never be afraid of what other people would think of it.
I love writing, and completed some short stories, and all got rejected. But that's ok, I just keep trying :) Also wrote a poem a long time ago, in the early 90s, and my sisters loved it, but I didn't show it to anyone else because I was embarrassed. Now I've lost the poem and I truly regret it.7/14/2005 09:04:00 AM|W|P|Blogger mistyeiz|W|P|hi metria! thanks for the encouragement. :) a lot of ppl out there, even in blogger have a lot of hidden talent. many of them write superb poems like oshun, desiderata, sharon...i bet MANY more (just havent checked them out yet). i wished there was somewhere Malaysian poets could get together n do something about our hidden talents. u know?

one day, i guess. :)7/14/2005 09:06:00 AM|W|P|Blogger Metria|W|P|Well, why not get the ball rolling? Organise some poetry nights or something? :) Someone has to take the first step, maybe you can!7/14/2005 09:15:00 AM|W|P|Blogger mistyeiz|W|P|hehehe....thats a great idea metria, REALLY. :D but not where i live la. i'm in an ULU place. if i was in penang or kl. it might just work but not here la. :(7/14/2005 11:49:00 AM|W|P|Anonymous Balajoe|W|P|Don't be discouraged...it is just that Malaysians are not accustomed to "poetry". Blame it on our education system if you will. I still remember during my English clasess, poetry was boring (no kidding) and the teacher will just by-pass it for more "important" subject.

Keep up your creativity and perhaps one day, there will be a chance for publication. If you really want to attract Malaysians to love poetry, do one using Malaysian themes...that's how "Malaysian Pantun" is getting along these days.7/14/2005 12:17:00 PM|W|P|Blogger mistyeiz|W|P|malaysian theme's huh? not sure how to incorporate durians n nasi lemak into my poems. ;) but i could but try. hehehe....thanks for the encouragement BJ...such a sweety. :D7/14/2005 02:56:00 PM|W|P|Blogger Metria|W|P|Nasi lemak is good
Best type of Malaysian food
Durians not so sedap
And smelly like cempedak

hehe7/14/2005 04:00:00 PM|W|P|Blogger mistyeiz|W|P|wah metria....so clever la u!!! *claps* dahsyat betui....

Sambai petai, how i love the spice
but man, the smell can kill all mice
belacan, belacan, you & kangkong
what a pair, i surely sokong!

:D7/14/2005 05:40:00 PM|W|P|Blogger bibliobibuli|W|P|I have lots to write stemming from your comments - maybe not all in one go though ... I think there are lots of writers out there with the same concerns!

But rejection is part of the game, and no-one laughs at you ... except for the critic who sits inside your head.

You need to take small steps to gain confidence first before sending out work ... but when you have that confidence you just see rejection as part of the process and don't get defeated by it.7/14/2005 06:05:00 PM|W|P|Blogger mistyeiz|W|P|:D thanks sharon. i'm really looking forward to what u have to say. so i'll b watching u site like a hawk! :P7/15/2005 11:39:00 AM|W|P|Blogger Lao Chen|W|P|Hello,

I'm actually quite scared to grow old. Not because of the attack of wrinkles all over my face, sagging skin all over, flabby bye-bye arms and worst of all, saggy boobs - ok, maybe I am scared shit about all the above as well but what's worst is the thought that my kids (if I have any) will dump me in an old folks home when I get old and feeble. *sigh* I know some of you out there WANT to be put there because you dont want to trouble your kids, just like my mum. She told me that she wants me to put her in an old folks home when she gets really old so that she wont be of any trouble to me and my sis.....CRAZY OR WHAT???!?!? That inhumane thought has NEVER once crossed my mind. I'd rather get a maid to look after her and have her at our own home rather than her staying in a nursing home where I know for a fact that she would NEVER feel comfy and not only that, there is no guarantee that they will indeed take good care of her. As children, I seriously think that its a really horrid act to dump our parents in a nursing home when they get old. After all my parents went through for me and bringing me up to where I am today, not to mention all the sacrifices and the going to bed late and getting up early to get me ready for school. Paying for every single thing I owned.....I could never have the heart to put her in a nursing home. No way.....
'
And when its my turn.....I think I'll do exactly what this lady did.
*Although its from an email, it sure as hell beats living in a nursing home!!* :D
' Retirement Option - definitely something I will look into ONE day.
' About 2 years ago my friend and I were on a cruise through the Western Mediterranean aboard a Princess liner. At dinner we noticed an elderly lady sitting alone along the rail of the grand stairway in the main dining room. I also noticed that all the staff, ships officers, waiters, busboys, etc., all seemed very familiar with this lady. I asked our waiter who the lady was, expecting to be told she owned the line, but he said he only knew that she had been on board for the last four cruises, back to back.
' As we left the dining room one evening I caught her eye and stopped to say hello. We chatted and I said, "I understand you've been on this ship for the last four cruises". She replied, "Yes, that's true." I stated, "I don't understand" and she replied, without a pause, "It's cheaper than a nursing home".
"
So, that being the case, there will be no nursing home in my future. When I get old and feeble, I am going to get on a Princess Cruise ship. The average cost for a nursing home is $200 per day. I have checked on reservations at Princess and I can get a long term discount and senior discount price of $135 per day. That leaves $65 a day for: ' 1. Gratuities which will only be $10 per day. And the rest can be put into the slot machines. 2. I will have as many as 10 meals a day if I can waddle to the restaurant, or I can have room service (which means I can have breakfast in bed every day of the week). 3. Princess has as many as three swimming pools, a workout room, free washers and dryers, and shows every night.
4. They have free toothpaste and razors, and free soap and shampoo. 5. They will even treat you like a customer, not a patient. An extra $5 worth of tips and your casino winnings will have the entire staff scrambling to help you. 6. I will get to meet new people every 7 or 14 days. 7. TV. broken? Light bulb needs changing? Need to have the mattress replaced? No problem! They will fix everything and apologize for your inconvenience. 8. Clean sheets and towels every day, and you don't even have to ask for them. 9. If you fall in the nursing home and break a hip you are on Medicare; if you fall and break a hip on the Princess ship they will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of you life. ' Now hold on for the best! ' Do you want to see South America, the Panama Canal, Tahiti, Australia, New Zealand,Asia, or name where you want to go? Princess will have a ship ready to go. So don't look for me in a nursing home, just call shore to ship.
' PS: And don't forget, when you die, they just dump you over the side at no charge at all. Be sure to sign up before all seat are taken!!
'
Now THAT'S a retirement option I find HARD to say no to. :D

I share your opinion abt old folks homes, wouldn't put my parents in one. However, over here in Australia, the old folks homes are really good. They even have retirement villages for senior citizens, something which is lacking in Malaysia. The old folks homes I've seen in Msia leave a lot to be desired! They're basically just houses with old people sitting around waiting for their time to be up. Really sad!7/14/2005 09:06:00 AM|W|P|Blogger mistyeiz|W|P|tell me abt it!! in my hometown, every xmas, the church choir would make a trip to the old folk's home n we'l sing for them. every time i go there, i feel like crying. its so sad to see them like that. sitting down the whole day, no signs of life in their dull eyes. very pitiful. n when we come see them, they are so happy.....can literally see the light shining from their faces. its sad la...VERY sad. :(7/13/2005 01:57:00 PM|W|P|mistyeiz|W|P|
*A view of the entrance to Canossian Convent, Kluang. After all these years, still looks the same to me. *

Reading mumsgather's post on her schooling days brought back many memories to mind. Pretty much like walking down memory lane. I remember my schooling days, right from the first day I stepped into Canossian Convent Kindergarten right up to my college days. They were filled with both fun and torture.

'
First day of school in kindergarten saw me getting onto the bus alone. Mum just got me ready and we waited for the bus and off I went. While most parents would most likely build a camp outside their kids classroom, my parents were never there with me or my sis on any first day at school. I guess I was kinda of a tough kid. Not to mention BIG too. We were used to being independent from young. And a very good lesson taught too.
'
I remember getting onto the bus one day with my left arm wrapped in P.O.P, thanks to yours truly trying to be like some heroine and not get her white dress dirty while sliding down the slide, squatting after catechism class in church. The slide being the OLD fashion kind, where it was wooden with metal bars on it, was slippery after the rain and being so old didn't help a bit. Obviously the brakes on my shoes weren't exactly gonna work on slippery wood so, by the time I hit the end of the slide, the only thing that would stop me from falling face first were my arms, which by the way shot out too late and my left elbow hit the metal bar on the side. Let's just say that at the point, the people in church finally knew how loud my voice was since I was normally very quiet. My cousins (being teenagers then and wanting to be cool and REMAIN cool) didn't really bother about the wailing moi, just slowly disappeared. My uncle found me and took me into church, sobbing. My sis was just born then so my mum didn't really come to church until she was big enough so by the time mass started and dad came to fetch me, I was already in my uncle's house (which was coincidently quite near - thank goddess!) coz' the pain was so bad, we left half way through. There I was lying on the bed with my arm swollen and not being able to move it, I felt like as if I was in some old Tamil movie (although I swear I don't watch them at all sometimes I have no choice because my grandparents love them. Sigh.) where the sick kid is lying motionless on the bed, sick. You know what I mean?
'
By the time I got to the hospital, most doctors were not around. So the HA wrapped my arm in P.O.P and had me stay the night. No one was with me even then. All alone in that tiny cot, in a huge dim room, with fans spinning so hard that they looked as if they were about to fly off the wall - it was certainly not a place for a kid to be in while still wide awake, although it was a kiddy ward. I mean, come on....I'm a BIG girl. That small cot was REALLY not fair. I could hardly stretch my legs. I was in a fetal position most of the time, which was unnecessary because they also had beds there. But I figured it was because of my age that they didn't give me a bed. Then again, shouldn't have common sense coming knocking by said otherwise? *shakes head* Anyway, I was so glad when morning came and my dad came to fetch me home. I still remember grumbling about the whole thing, about how my parent had the heart to dump me in the hospital all by myself - I was out on a life mission to take them on a LONG guilt trip and yay, it worked! :)
'
As I mentioned, the following was school and your truly being the biggest in class, had a field trip threatening all the boys in class if they didn't put on my mum's lipstick which I had taken on the way out to school. Hehehe!! Who would have dared to say no to MOI? I was HUGE and I had a HARD arm on me, one 'gedebuk' and they'd be in pain so....all the boys had lipstick on them. Hahahahaha!!!! That was a good one. On other days, I was 'She-Ra' and I had my own 'lion' too. In fact, I had a few. *giggles* Every morning before class, I would get a free ride around class coz one of the boys would be the victim. As long as I had that hard arm on me, I RULED! But even then, I had a fav lion, AC. He turned out to be a mighty fine young man, if I might say so myself. I just hoped those boys were not TOO traumatized by the whole lipstick affair.
'
But having that P.O.P was not as glamorous as you think it is. Yea, it was fun for awhile UNTIL the teacher takes you to EACH bloody class and proudly shows you off saying, "Children....this is what happens when naughty boys and girls jump off tables and chairs." WTF?!?!?! And then after the 'showing me off', pulls me aside and stuffs my face with toffee, gad I hate that candy and what it does to my tongue until today! Bleeaacchh!!! I should have sued her for degradation of self esteem. But what to do, that time I was only a kid. The only thing I ever felt was malu la.
'
The only time I was ever 'powerless' was when recess time came and we'd all go out to play in this HUGE garden like field where there's a wooden playhouse there, right smack in the middle. Now, this play house is like THE happening place to be in during recess and you can thank your lucky stars if you ever manage to step foot in it if those rich little SPOILT Chinese girls were in there as well. They pretty much ruled the pad. And darn those kids were mean! No one but the chosen ones were invited in. Even then, at such a tender age, segregation existed. And here we are thinking that children see all as one. I think its the way these kids are brought up and nothig more than that. Anyways, I NEVER had the chance to play in that happening haven until one FINE day, I succeeded!!! Yes, it should have been recorded into history, I tell you....but I only succeeded because I was a bit early that day. But the minute the fearsome four turned up, I was booted out. So much for being big. Sigh.
'
Despite it all it was fun.....more torments from secondary school in Part 2. :D
