8/30/2005 11:49:00 PM|W|P|mistyeiz|W|P|Menjelang hari kebangsaan negara tercintaku yang ke-48 ini, aku terkenang akan suatu memori yang tidak dapat ku lupakan. Pada masa itu, aku baru sahaja melangka masuk ke darjah 4. Ia merupakan suatu memori yang telah membuatku bangga kerana mewakili daerahku serta sekolah rendahku pada tahun yang cukup gemilang bagiku - 1988. Ya!! Itulah tahun yang paling bersejarah di dalam hidup ku yang baru menjengka 27 tahun ini. Pada masa itulah, aku terasa sungguh istimewa dan cukup bererti bagi kumpulanku.
' Pada hari yang sungguh istimewa itu, iaitu pada 22 Ogos 1988, aku telah dipilih untuk menyertai Perarakan Kereta Berhias sempena perayaan hari kebangsaam Malaysia peringkat kebangsaan, kali ke-33. Aku telah menerima surat yang menyatakan bahawa aku telah dipilih untuk menghiasi diri sebagai seorang buruh. Di antara pekerjaan selain daripada buruh, terdapat pekerjaan seperti pengantin lelaki & perempuan, doktor, polis, askar, hakim, kerani atau guru, nelayan dan jururawat. Kawan sekelasku telah dipilih sebagai jururawat. *Adakah dia sekarang bekerja SEBAGAI jururawat...hhmmm, aku tidak pasti.* Ibubapaku sungguh gembira apabila mendapat tahu anak perempuan mereka yang sulung akan menjadi 'terkenal' bagaikan 'super-star'! Aku juga gembira apabila melihat raut wajah mereka yang bersinar-sinar. Sungguh mengasyikkan hati!! ' Ibuku begitu bersemangat dalam menyiapkan pakaianku. Oleh kerana aku telah dipilih untuk menghiasi diri sebagai seorang buruh, ibuku telah menjahit baju orang perempuan 'san sui' - yang pada masa itu sungguh terkenal disebabkan oleh rancangan televisyen yang disiaran setiap hari. Rancangan ini memaparkan kehidupan para buruh perempuan yang diberi nama 'san sui'. Memandangkan waktu ini telah berlaku pada tahun 1988, aku tidak lagi dapat ingat kembali nama sebenar rancangan itu. Namun demikian, ibuku mendapat inspirasi dari rancangan tersebut. Beliau telah menghabiskan banyak masa dan titik peluhnya sewaktu menjahit dan menyiapkan pakaianku. Pakaianku terdiri daripada sepasang seluar panjang hitam, baju berlengan panjang warna biru tua dan kain merah yang telah dibentuk menjadi topi. Aku sungguh terharu and berterima kasih banyak-banyak akan segala bantuan yang telah beliau hulurkan kepadaku pada masa itu. Itulah sebabnya aku sungguh gembira, kerana dapat membuat ibubapaku turut berasa gembira dan bangga dengan anak perempuan mereka. ' Akhirnya, tibalah masanya untuk kami sekumpulan menaiki kereta berhias ini bagi tujuan melatih dan membiasakan diri untuk acara yang cukup menarik ini. Latihan dan percubaan ini telah dilangsungkan pada 30 Ogos 1988, pukul 8 malam. Kereta berhias kami telah melalui beberapa jalan utama di daerah Kluang. Selain daripada melatih, aku rasa ia jugak bertujuan untuk menunjuk kepada para penduduk daerah Kluang akan kereta berhias yang akan mengambil bahagian dalam perarakan yang akan dijalankan pada 31 Ogos 1988 nanti. Latihan perarakan itu terasa sungguh pendek dan mudah kalau ingin dibandingkan dengan perarakan yang sebenarnya! Saya langsung tidak perasan akan perbezaan ini sehinggalah kami pulang ke bilik masing-masing selepas perarakan tersebut. ' Pada keesokan hari, kami sekumpulan telah berkumpulan di Pejabat Majlis Daerah Kluang sambil menunggu van yang akan membawa kami ke Padang Seri Galam, Johor Bahru (Tolong jangan tanya di mana letaknya padang ini kerana saya langsung tidak dapat ingat akan tempat ini). Kami telah ditempatkan di Rumah Persinggahan Johor Bahru, yang pada pendapat saya, kemungkinan besar, tidak lagi wujud. Disebabkan saya murid yang paling muda dan tidak kenal akan pelajar yang lain, saya telah ditempatkan di sebuah bilik, keseorangan. Saya tidak merungut tetapi agak kecewa dan takut kerana ini merupakan kali pertama saya meninggalkan keluarga dan bermalam di tempat yang tidak dikenali, seorang diri. Walaubagaimanapun, ia tidak dapat memadam ketidaksabaran hatiku untuk memulakan perarakan tersebut. ' Akhirnya, pada pukul 7 malam, perarakan tersebut telah dimulakan. Kereta berhias kami telah diberi nombor yang ke-4. Terasa sungguh merangsangkan melihat begitu RAMAI wajah-wajah rakyat Malaysia yang telah datang berpusu-pusu ke Padang Seri Galam ini. Kebanyakan mereka yang telah hadiri terdiri daripada orang muda dan keluarga mereka. Ini termasuklah ibubapa dan adik-beradik mereka. Kami diarahkan untuk sentiasa melambai ke arah orang ramai. Pada mulanya, saya rasa sungguh malu dan kekok kerana tidak biasa melihat begitu ramai 'peminat' di kedua-dua belah jalan raya yang luas itu. Tetapi lama-kelamaan, terasa bagai celebriti atau Miss Universe - sungguh perasan kan? :D Namun, aku memang rasa bagaikan seorang artis - perasaan itu sungguh menakjubkan! Aku tidak dapat menafikan bahawa inilah suatu memori yang cukup bererti bagiku. ' Kereta berhias kami bergerak dengan sungguh perlahan dan oleh sebab perayaan ini adalah pada peringkat kebangsaan, kami diberitahu bahawa kereta kami kemungkinan besar akan dirakam dan ditayang di kaca televisyen. Namun, memandangkan bahawa terdapat banyak lagi kereta berhias pada waktu itu, kereta kami tidak berjaya menjadi LEBIH 'terkenal'. Akhirnya, pada pukul 11 malam, perarakan itu telah tamat. Saya berasa sungguh gembira dan bersyukur kerana kakiku berasa sungguh sakit dan lenguh kerana telah berdiri di satu posisi untuk jangka masa yang begitu lama. Malam itu, ku tidur dengan nyenyak sekali kerana sungguh penat dan lesu. ' Kami bertolak pulang ke Kluang pada pagi yang seterusnya. Sewaktu ibubapaku datang menjemput aku pulang, mereka memberitahu bahawa rakaman kami tidak sempat disiarkan namun, ada yang mengatakan bahawa mereka ternampak kereta berhias kami dipaparkan. Alangkah seronoknya dapat melihat diri sendiri di kaca televisyen!! Namun, kita tidak begitu bernasib baik. :( ' Walaubagaimanapun, aku tetap bangga kerana mengambil bahagian dalam perayaan Hari Kemerdekaan ini kerana aku anak Malaysia!! ' Selamat menyambut Hari Kebangsaan Malaysia, hari kemerdekaan kita!!

'
MERDEKA!! MERDEKA!! MERDEKA!!
' To a foreigner, those words mean nothing. But to our fellow countrymen, it is the sweet sound of victory being proclaimed proudly to all who were present that special day by our late Tunku Abdul Rahman. The was the day we gained our independence 48 years ago - 31 August 1957. The day we began as a new nation with baby steps as a free country. Today, after 48 years of enjoying that freedom, we can proudly say that we have walked the walk and talked the talk. Our Malaysia has weathered MANY obstacles and have enjoyed many victories. And just like the bamboo, it sways when encountering the strong destructive winds but still stands firm and strong despite it all.
' Being born after 1957, I escaped all the hardships and tortures which my parents and their parents had gone through. Looking back, I realised how much they must have suffered as they were not from the upper class. They were poor and most of the time, it was 'kais pagi makan pagi, kais petang makan petang' (enough to live on for the moment). Such was the life they led. Today, although poverty still exist the numbers have dropped drastically and even the poor now can afford to live in a low cost house with the help from our government and also from caring and generous fellow Malaysians out there. Even so, I feel that the government can still do more than what they are doing now, especially for the hard core poor. But that's another topic all together.
' As I'm sitting down here and writing this pre-Merdeka post, I sudden feel so terharu (touched) because I realise how lucky and blessed I am to be able to do just this - sitting here comfortably, typing this post in a well air-conditioned room where there are no wars, fighting or bombing outside my door. Where I do not have to worry about anyone barging in with a gun in his hand as he threathens to shoot at me point blank nor do I have to worry about some freak throwing a bomb into this room. Why? Simply because I live in a peaceful country. I remember how my mum used to tell us stories about the Japanese occupation and how everytime she hears a siren, she cringes because she is reminded of those horrid times. Or how the only food they used to have on their table was either sweet potato or plain rice porridge. Today, nothing of that sort will happen (I hope) or has happened. Today, most of us can afford a car (some people 2 cars), a home (some people more than 2 oso got!) and even take a vacation to some far away place. Some can even afford to visit Coffee Bean like how I visit my fav mamak stall! Wealth is almost everywhere you turn. All these were but a dream, 48 years ago. See how far we've journeyed and how better off we are today?
' Why am I proud to be Malaysian? Simply because I know that I can openly celebrate ALL the festive seasons that are constantly happening all year round, with my friends of various races. Malay, Chinese, Indian.....they may differ in race but we stand united and are one despite this racial difference. We can even openly celebrate our religious parades and activities, and not have the police bombard us with tear gas to get us off the road or get thrown in lock-up for it. Where else in the world have you seen this kind of freedom? The freedom to joyously celebrate your religion? We respect and accept what the other is be it Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or Christian - THAT is what makes us unique and special in the eyes of those who do not know us. Not to mention that I LOVE all our festivities :-
'
Chinese New Year - I collect angpow from my aunties and uncles and then go and collect my biscuit tin of kuih kapit. *Hand made, ok? Don't pray-pray!*
Hari Raya - Boss give green pow and I get macam-macam punya kuih raya
Deepavali - No angpow, green pow or purple pow but lots of murrukus and my favourite, ROSE COOKIES!! *YUM!*
Christmas - No need to say la, collect presents and cards la!! :)
Vasakhi - Bhanghra night out and get some awesome Punjabi sweets which I LOVE to death. I just don't know the name.
'
See? So happening right?? :) '
I am also proud to be Malaysian because there is no place on earth with THAT many dishes and food to choose from and that can whet my appetite. No spaghetti or tortilla or kebab could ever replace my beloved nasi lemak and teh tarik. NOTHING AT ALL!! Tell me, what does it mean when a foreigner comes for a visit to Malaysia and goes home with an added 3 inch waist? In just 2 words, GOOD FOOD!! :D *No wonder most Malaysians are VERY 'properous' like yours truly Heh. - Don't angry hor? Just speaking the truth.* '
I am proud to be Malaysian because we have progressed so far and have achieved so much in just 48 years since our independence. How many other nations which you know of, are capable of doing that? We have continuously produced so many professionals who hold high and prestigious posts in major companies world wide. Shouldn't we be proud of that? '
Aaaahhh.....my peaceful, beautiful Malaysia. My multi-racial and colorful Malaysia. I seriously could not ask nor would I ask for more.
*Maybe naik gaji got la!* '
Have a good Merdeka (and holiday) tomorrow, I know I will as I reminisce ONE particular Merdeka where I was the star. Well, ONE of it anyway. Till tomorrow...
' MERDEKA!! MERDEKA!! MERDEKA!!

Part Expert Kisser

You're a kissing pro, but it's all about quality and not quantity You've perfected your kissing technique and can knock anyone's socks off And you're adaptable, giving each partner what they crave When it comes down to it, your kisses are truly unforgettable

Part Playful Kisser

Kissing is a huge game for you, a way to flirt and play You're the first one to suggest playing spin the bottle at a party Or you'll go for the wild kiss during a game of truth or dare And you're up for kissing any sexy stranger if the mood is right!
This is what happens when I have nothing to blog about in the mornings. Then again, it's SO affirming as well. So no regrets what so ever! Heh. :P

Wah!! So nice to receive gifts....Especially when you least expect it!! :) I got this box of Swiss chocolates from a Japanese colleague today. So sweet of him!! And NO, he is NOT trying to hit on me, just appreciative of what I had helped him with - his travel arrangements. :) It's these small little gestures that make me VERY happy to be where I am, doing what I'm doing. Also gives me an upper hand of knowing who's going where and therefore make them get me fridge madgets!! Lol....it's not right but hey, it gets me what I want. Heh.
'
The nice packaging my mum destroyed. I wanted so much to keep the ribbon. SO nice n cute and ROYAL looking. Sigh. ' Funny thing is, although I appreciate his gesture, I'm really no fan of chocolates. Yes, I am one of a kind. (Sorry dear, you'll have to think of something else OTHER than chocolates if you wanna pujuk me next time. At least now, you've got a challenge, right?Heh.) Maybe almost or already extinct kinda female. And even with this almost non-existent like for chocolates, my weigh keeps on piling up - must be from all that teh tarik that I consume daily. O well.....one of my philosophies in life is - YOU LIVE ONLY ONCE. Ain't never gonna get no teh tarik OR nasi lemak once I'm six feet under, you know? So, eat and be merry!
'

OOooooo....aaahhhh.......*saliva dribbles....* Looks good, taste even better!! Come, come...see, best lor!! :D

I don't know if I heard wrong but I'm can bet my last dime sen that I heard the latest news headlines about how our Internal Security Ministry is now up to another action plan in line with trying to curb the distribution of porn via handphones. Now, how this is possible I am not sure UNLESS it's a situation where 'I take your naked picture but I promise you, it's for my eyes only.' Then guy/girl (I don't THINK so!!) goes around showing it off to every Tom, Dick & Harry Ali, Mutu & Chong or better yet, 'send to many'. But for people like me who are using Nokia 1100 or 3315 (Sorry la, I only know these 2 models coz I've only used 2 phones nia...), rugi la, right? Eeeehhh....give me oso I don't want la! Want to see boobies, just look down....heh. *Aiyoo....better stop letting people's imagination run wild - so many cikopeks (perverts) out there!* ' Anyway, according to the headlines and a short description of the news, they mentioned that officials will now have the authority to conduct random spot-checks on anyone SUSPECTED of possessing porn on their phone. And those who are found with such 'treasures' will be prosecuted. and the officials will use that particular phone to forward the 'prized' pictures to their own handphones. ' There goes EVERYONE'S privacy - down the jamban. All your 'I love you baby', 'I miss u baby' and infamous, 'What are you doing now, baby? sms-es will be available to all these lucky officers. Not only that, the way I see it - those out there who are genuinely good guys but have cikopek faces, sorry la - sure kena spot-check every now and then. Sigh. Kesian....so pitiful, buta only kena spot-check. Worst case scenario is kena corner while having char koay teow with dad and mum :- ' Officer : Oi, oi. Mana henpon? Mana henpon? Tunjuk, tunjuk....lu punya muka ah, serupa itu orang jual VCD lucah dekat xxxx. Dulu pernah wa tangkap masuk lokap....mana, mana lu punya henpon? Wa mau chek. (Where's your handphone? Show me, show me. Your face looks like that porn VCD seller I busted and locked some time ago. Where's your handphone? I want to check it out.) You : Huh???? (Need no explaination right?) ' Wahlau, sure paisey like crazy!! Not only in front of parents, in front of EVERYONE! Wahlau.....lagi teruk if dad also kena corner - OMG!! Can go and jump off Penang Bridge right after that!! I won't even blame you.... ' So those of you out there with a cikopek face, maybe you want to go for make-over (or not)? :D Look more decent to suit your demeanour. Heh. Now, I can't wait to tonight's news!! Seriously, how effective do you think this is? Will it REALLY help track down and curb the spread of porn? Come...share your views.

My weekends are normally spent at home. I used to party till the sun came up at one point in life but I think such extreme actions tend to slow down as I age (O gawd!! Did I just admit that I'm getting old???? NOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!). Nowadays, it's stay- in weekends for me and clubbing only happens if there's a party going on or I feel like my eyes need some 'washing' - I'd have to be REALLY lucky on this coz most of the time, my eyes HURT. Sigh. So as usual, this weekend was no different and I took Mum out for some household shopping. We made out way to Carrefour, Seberang Jaya and easily found a parking spot as it was only about 11.30am. ' We did some looking around and soon it was lunch time so we made our way to the food court. I haven't been to Carrefour often enough to recommend MANY dishes to those who have not yet step foot there BUT I did try the hotplate noodles and it was quite nice, suprisingly and the price - affordable too. O, not to mention that the chef was a very nice and friendly bloke as well. But this time, instead of sticking to something I already KNEW was nice, I gatai pungkok (literally means itchy backside and loosely translated as asking for trouble) and I made my way to the economy rice and Mum followed me too. The food looked appetising so I began to fill my plate with 3 types veggies and an egg. Mum took the same except she took a piece of fish instead of an egg. The total amount costs us a whooping RM9.60 (without tax). How that happened, I don't know since we only took veggies, I really thought it costs a wee bit TOO much. I should have brought my cam along with me but as usual, I forgot. *Must be like Lilian, lug around a backpack with ALL her ammo inside. Anything nice or out of the norm - thiak thiak! Then go home and blog about it.* Still haven't learnt my lesson. Sigh. ' After paying for the ridiculously expensive veggie meal, I went to give the lady the receipt and asked her for the free soup which they had so OPENLY and PROUDLY pasted on the wall behind their counter - 'Free 1 bowl of vegetable soup for purchase of RM5 and above'. But she had the cheek to tell me, 'Tak siap lagi la (Not ready yet la).' I was stunned as it was already way past 1pm. So I asked her, 'Habis macam maner? Takde aper-aper la? (So, how? I don't get anything is it?', and she gave me her STUPID and IRRITATING smile and just shook her hands as a sign that I wasn't gonna get anything, at least not today. *GGggggrrrr....* As I stomped off, I told her,'Kalau takde atau belum siap, jangan bubuh notis macam tuh. Sekarang nih, kira you tipu I tau?? (If there's no free soup or if it's not ready, then don't bother putting up a false notice. Do you realise that's cheating??)'. Being the blur sotong that she looked like (Cmos, don't angry arr...), I don't think she even realise that I was actually giving her a piece of my mind. *Just wondering if she knows how to count or not. Shessh!!* ' After that very 'eventful' lunch, we went into the food section to looked for our stuff. All of a sudden, I heard this familiar tune (having once lived in Johor)....and then the lyrics began clearer to me - 'Singapura. Singapura, oh Singapura. Sunny island, set in the seaaaaaaaaa... Singapura, oh Singapura. Pretty flowers, bloom for you and me...' ' And I was like, WTF???? I couldn't believe it!! I told myself that I must be hearing things and was secretly hoping that I was but I'm not deaf and I was pretty sure of what I was hearing. I mean, it is nearing to OUR national day but these stupid nuts (the song seem as if it was coming from the Wall's Conetto roadshow to promote their mini ice cream cones - and lemme tell you, they are MINUTE!!!) were playing ANOTHER countries' somewhat national song???? (It's not the national anthem of Singaproe BUT it's like our 'Kerana Mu Malaysia' song, you know?) What the fark was wrong with these people???? Mau mati ka??? Someone should shoot them...sadly I don't have a gun license or I would have done it myself. ' If anyone was at Carrefour, Seberang Jaya between 2pm and 3pm, and was nearby the Conetto freezer which is near the fruits and vegetables section, please let me know that I was hearing stuff.....PLEEEEEASE!!!!

Well, go here - 'register' yourself and get this WONDERFUL button and 'belog' away come this 31st August 2005, k? :D ' I personally feel that this is the best time for all of you out there, who have NOT written in BM for a long time such as yours truly, to write in BM. I can't remember when was the last time I ever wrote anything in BM. I think it was a letter to one of my customers but even then, my boss wasn't too confident in my capability. Sigh. So sad. Anyway, karat (rusty) or not, come join me and a whole band of other bloggers all around this blogsphere and 'belog' in BM.

Timon arrives in a cute little 10kg Fedex box and obviously unhappy that he's IN one. ' Timon in a 'temporary' home which happens to be one of Mum's OLD flower pot holders. ' Timon in his NEW home after we rushed out to buy the biggest basin we could find. This dingky non-biodegradable basin costs RM27.90!!! Don't pray-pray ar... 'Timon getting comfy in his new home and as you can see, the water's SO clear and clean. BUT you don't wanna see it now. Sigh. It's gonna be a crappy (pun intended) job keeping good ol' Timon here clean. :p '
Speaking of which, HOW do you pronounce TORTOISE? Was proclaiming this good news to a few friends and one of them told me that the Brits in her office pronounce tortoise, "tor-toys" where as I (and most of the people I know) pronounce it, "tor-tis". And if we are suppose to be following the British, shouldn't we be also pronouncing it "tor-toys"? *Wonders when we should speak American and when British...*

My friend had 3 little tortise a long time ago when we were still in school. Those tortises were smaller then out palm and fast movers.

Now, only 2 left. as big as yours... :P

Living not in a tong.. But crawing all over the garden and there's a koi pond...

Because of their years of veggie diet, they don't eat the koi fishes... Amazing..

Yeah get timon a pool/garden. With that big rock in the middle the poor fellow looks like he's only got a roundabout to live in :)

And I've heard people pronounce "tor-tis" and "tor-toys", so I use both of them when I like it.8/28/2005 04:13:00 PM|W|P|Blogger Shanker|W|P|haha...i read this post first and i was like OMG cos i thought u really got Timon delivered to you via Fedex. haha... silly me.

Well I would like to put some fireworks inside the tor-tis. Light it up and see what happens.

laid bare : yup, i know. poor fella but there's just so u can do when such a thing happens you know? mum's in the midst of thinking up a plan so hopefully he'll b better once he's in a more 'natural' environment. let me out into the garden while i was washing his 'home' yesterday n boy, did he have a field trip of what!! hahaha....sadly, my pups scared the bejeebers out of him. poor thing!! wanted to see how they reacted to each other and now i know, it's not a good idea to let timon run loose in the yard. only IF and when the pups are in their house, then maybe can la. :)

What more can I say - that sounds PRETTY impressive! :D On another note, I read this off a blog recently but forgot to take down the address but what I thought was really cool was this guys message to all the F.A.T guys....he said, 'Don't get upset if people call you (the guys) f.a.t because f.a.t is FABULOUS AND THICK'. Now...if that doesn't boost your (guys of course since they have SUCH an obsession over their PRIZED possession) ego or manhood or whatever you call it, I don't know what will. *Grin*

Forgive the cheekiness, don't know what's happened to me. :D Too excited about Timon, I guess....lol!!

What??? A TORTOISE???? Yes, a tortoise indeed - a tortoise I found taking a STROLL across a busy road as I was on my way to the office this morning. And this is happening after 2 tortoise stories. Let me share with you my tortoise tales :-
'
Tortoise tale #1
It was a dark and stormy night that fateful day in 2001....ok ok, it wasn't stormy but it was darn dark ok? I was driving back home after college one extremely dark and moonless night (I was taking part time classes back in those days - juggling work and studies is NO JOKE!) and as usual, I would be speeding driving a little faster than usual because I'm no fan of the highways at night and all I was looking forward to was my nice warm bed and a hot mug of Milo before I retire for the night. As I'm zooming past, my headlights catch this moving lump in the middle of the highway and I'm thinking, 'What the heck it that?!?!?'. I manage to avoid it by letting it go between my wheels. I slowed down a little and looked into my mirror and what I thought it was, was confirmed. It was a TORTOISE, talking a slow evening walk ACROSS the highway. Why it was doing that or where it was going - I guess I'll never know. I don't even know if it's still alive or got squashed by some crazy drive after me. I would have stopped to take it back home with me, just so I know for a fact that it WOULD have a chance to live but there was NO way in the world I was going to stop ON the highway on a DARK and LONELY night. So I drove on, feeling rather upset and afraid for the poor thing. It was on my mind for a few days but I knew I could have done nothing.
'
Tortoise Tale #2
This little tortoise was on the WRONG side of the road or it would be splashing in a pool today in my house, today. I was on the way to office one fine morning and decided to take a different route from the one I normally take - which was a bit unusual for me since I prefer my normal route. Why I did that - I don't know but I'm beginning to think it was some higher power. So there I was happily driving a little slower this time and then suddenly, out the corner of my eyes, I spot a moving lump - AGAIN!!! And I thought, 'Gad!!! Another tortoise???'. And this was happening about 1 year or so, after Mr. Unlucky Tortoise #1 was deserted by yours truly. I was shocked and although I was driving slower, I couldn't stop as well, because there were cars behind me and it was on the other side of the road. I felt so darn bad about it. Even wanted to make a U-turn at the next possible point but if I did that, I would have been late for work and I didn't want to leave a and impression on my new boss so, bye-bye tortoise #2.
'
Tortoise tale #3 (and hopefully the last, PLEASE!!!)
TODAY....I was on the way to work as I mentioned earlier and this lucky little fella had a narrow escape from the squashing of my wheels. It was taking a stroll across a rather busy road and when I managed to avoid it, I knew that I was third time lucky (I hope) and also knew for a fact that I wasn't gonna let this one slip. So I stopped my car by the side of the road, did some reversing and thank goddess that there weren't any cars behind me, trotted off to where it was STILL strutting its stuff, and picked it up. I freaked out when it started hissing at me and I was SO afraid it was going to stick its head out and snap at my fingers so I made sure I held it by the side of its shell and at arms length away from me. Took it back to my office and looked for a box to put it until we go home. Found a nice looking Fedex box and at the moment, Timon the tortoise (Naming of an animal - a sign of ownership and acceptance) is quite happy (I think) in his (or her as I have NO idea how to identify its sex but since I like boys better than girls, it'll have to be a HE for now) box. Caught his sticking his head out just now, so cute but I gather from that particular action that he ain't too happy about the box. I hope he isn't claustrophobic coz if he is - POOR THING!!!
'
Will take pictures of him and his box when I get home later but for now, I'm pleased to announce that I now have 2 puppies and a tortoise. *GRIN*

All this talk about domain buying and web-hosting is getting me all fired up. I'll be going to check out a site Prashanth mentioned to me, which I think belongs to Petai (who can be found on Malaysian Blogger Forum - if you haven't signed up, you better!!) . Not only that, I've also been struck with the problem of coming up with a name for my domain. So far, Laidbare's suggestion seems to stand out - www.sexyvy.com . :D Looks good, sounds good and definitely lives up to yours truly. *Yes, I have what is called a chronic case of perasan-ism. Newly discovered, TODAY also by yours truly.
'
Today's post will be of random thoughts, nothing in particular so the next thing I wanna talk about is what SeekingAttentionDesperately mentioned in one of my comment boxes, "Errm... about your penang bloggers meet, are you guys are very close friends or 'totally strangers'? You guys must have been blogging for so long that everyone seems so at home with each other, yeah?". Frankly, speaking Seeking....I don't know ANYONE of them personally before we met face to face. I've only seen Peter Tan once at Northam Cafe somewhere in July but was too chicken to say hello. And he was the ONLY I could recognise, thank goddess! As for the rest, they are bloggers whose blogs I visit quite often and leave my territorial mark comment there, once in awhile. Actually, come to think of it, we WERE behaving as if we had known each other for years and I just realised that. Bizarre. :D Personally, I think it's hard NOT to be familiar in person when you've read their thoughts and practically know what they write about. Sometimes our writing does, to a certain extend potray who and what you are. And reading all these blogs for the past 3 months or so, has in a way made me (personally) feel familiar and close to them.
;
The funny thing is, I didn't feel out of place or even lost when the whole bunch came together although it was my FIRST blogger meet. Everyone was so friendly and talkative and active. Not only that, I love meeting people and such outing are what I normally look out for. So, for me, it was really a fun day out - I'm really glad I didn't miss out on it coz at one point, I thought no one was going to turn up. :D
'
In light of the coming Merdeka Day which is happening less than a week from now, 31/8/2005 to be exact (to those who don't know when is it happening - you need to tie lots of bricks to your legs and then jump off Penang Bridge), mum is all geared up and excited about it. So excited until she decided to tie the small flag I got for her car LAST year, up on the lamp in our porch. I actually bought her 2 last year, one she glued to her car windshield and the other she kept for this year. But this time she glued it on our gate but didn't realise that the gate couldn't open when she glued it there. So I had to remove it and I thought she wouldn't want to stick it up anymore. Yesterday, when I got back from work, I saw it proudly waving in the breeze. So cute and patriotic of my mum! :D
'

I don't know about you, but this year I noticed that the are not as many crazy Malaysians out there who have numerous flags all stuck unto their cars. As a matter of fact, I only saw ONE car like that and even then, there weren't as many flags. Wonder why....correct me if I'm wrong but there are no free flags given out this at petrol kiosks, are there? O well....

O, by the way, I'm helping Ong to do a SMALL research on how to get rid of household pests the natural way. If you have any 'grandma' recipes you know of, please share with me. :D

Note : 'Grandma' recipes as in tying dried chillies to your ceiling lights to keep lizards away or placing them in your rice container to keep those black weevils away. :)

Ps. Prashanth says that once I get my domain and want to 'install' WP in it, is not as easy as it looks and requires time and LOTS of patience. He also say that it's best if someone can sit with me and help me along the way. Who wants to SIT with me and HELP me thorough this overnight if necessary? Another question : your place or mine? *Grin*

Then again, MSN/Yahoo msgr pun jadi lar.....sigh.

penang ferry. yes of course it is still operating. if not, just using penang bridge, matilah the jam. actually many out-station people prefer to use the ferry esp. first timers or those with kids.

domain name. how much petai charged? you confirmed getting a domain name means you are going to continue using jeremy's web-host after the 6 months period, and pay the RM50 per month? me can't afford to pay RM50 per month lor.

penang bloggers meet. i have met peter tan a few times, whereas for ks tang, really bites, n305er, ong, jeremy that coffee bean meet was the 2nd time. the rest, like you, the first time. yes, it's true though we met first time, we talk like old friends.

natural pest control. er... tying red chili to the light keep cicak away? i thought that is for keeping those flies... what you call them... those flies that appears when it is about to rain. to trap them, the grandma hint is use a pail of water where there is a candle in the centre, place it under the light, then quickly switch off the light, and watch the flies fly to the candle, and falls into the water!8/25/2005 08:05:00 PM|W|P|Blogger Lao Chen|W|P|:)

I'm getting SO freaked out here (Although I live in Kulim but I go to Penang often enough). Shesssh!!! Yesterday, I got email saying that Bridge Toll is gonna go up, NOW...I get email saying that the one of Penang Bridge's base is cracking. WTF??? Is THIS why the toll is being hiked up? So we can afford to bring in expensive foreign engineers to help fix this problem? *Me thinks Malaysia already have a LOT of qualified (civil) engineers to handle the maintenance of Penang Bridge - why must pay more to get OTHER people to maintain it for us???* Yioh!!! ' Can someone verify this? And PLEASE tell me it's SOME other bridge and NOT Penang Bridge. *Also wonders who is the mangkok so berani (daring) to get such a close up picture of the base...siao or what??*

fear not, yvy, use the bridge as usual!8/27/2005 06:05:00 PM|W|P|Blogger xig|W|P|No worries. Dunno what bridge it is, but it doesn't matter. It appears to be a surface crack and NOT structural. That one can easily fill with concrete grouting. Happens all the time and no danger. Otherwise Mr Samy and Mr Koh wud already be hanging from one of the piers.8/23/2005 05:00:00 PM|W|P|mistyeiz|W|P|
Did I read wrong or is it true that Penang Bridge toll is gonna be hiked up from RM7.00 to RM8.50 with effect from Oct 1, 2005???? WTF?!?!?!? Sure or not?? This is insane la...have to wait and see whether it's true or not, what Lim Kit Siang mentioned - coz I received this news in the mail a few minutes ago. *Shakes head* First BKE toll prices increased, then petrol, THEN ferry toll increased, NOW Penang Bridge increase....EVERYTHING is increasing except my salary. Sigh. So unfair.
'
On a brighter note, since I've been given 6 months worth of web-hosting for free being numero uno arriving at Coffee Bean at the last Penang blogger meet, I need to get a domain so this whole web-hosting thing can happen. I've been toying with the idea of getting my own domain OR give up the web-hosting all together but the more I think about it, the more excited I get because there seems to be SO many things I'd like to do with it. I could put up my poems, keep track of my (mis)adventures and important events in my life (besides blogging that is). I could even store picture of my kiddy-hood and who knows, even start a research on my family tree - get down to the messy part of genealogy (Definition : record of a person's or a family's ancestors or elatives) NOT gynecology (Definition : Diagnosis and treatment of the female reproductive system) ok? Ham sup people......yioh! So many things I could do with it...
'
Anyway, since it's been on my mind, I was talking to a chat pal just now and we were talking about domain names. He asked me what domain I was gonna get. And so I told him that I wasn't too sure as to whether I really wanted one and he said that I should get it since now I can get cheap domains. Anyway, coming back to naming my domain, I informed him that yvylyn.com was available but somehow, it didn't seem interesting and we were just throwing out ideas of the 'future' domain - I can up with LOADS of them but he said that I should 'please kiss' - please keep it short and sweet. Hahaha!! Caught me SO off guard there!! :p Perasan sungguh! Then I thought, pleasekiss.com sounds kinda nice actually.....but decided against it. Then he suggested yvy.com - really short and sweet, and perfect right? BUT only problem was it already EXISTED!!!! Yes, it's true. It belongs to Yvy Commerce, Shipping & Forwarding Agent. I think it's a Swiss company but I could be dead wrong about it. I can't recognise the language but man, I could recognise the name darn well!! Sigh. There goes my "www.yvy.com".
'
Back to the drawing board, gurl.....
By the way, if you have any ideas of what I should name my domain, leave me a comment. No prizes if I decide to choose it coz I really like it but I promise to give you credit for it. :D That's one thing for sure!

Sorry for the delay kak, been super busy with my wordpress site...been sitting in front of the PC non stop since sunday morning!

anyway as I promised you - really cheap domains. Just go to this site: boringest.blogspot.com, on the right there will be a title called Rm15 domains, click that...and you're all set. Just make sure you ada credit card.

That's about it babes, you're all set, erm...about your domain name, try yvyandyoursurname.net or something like that :)
or mysteiz.net too is cool :)

One thing though yvy, WP is a pain in the butt, so make sure you're willing to INVEST some time and commitment to it, it's not as easy as it looks...in fact it can be really tedious, so my advice, make sure you find someone who can actually SIT with you and work with you one whole evening on it.
I had to do mine with a help of person over on msn, and it was tedious at times...of course you do learn ALOT!8/25/2005 08:37:00 AM|W|P|Blogger mistyeiz|W|P|laidbare :wah!! so far urs is the MOST eye catching & it lives up to me too. *chronic case of perasan-ism* :D thanks!!

'
Well, after the Penang Bloggers meet on Sunday, I've been hit by writer's block and have somehow lost my words. So I thought that I should get my cute bubble butt back into action by talking about what I saw outside my house as I was driving out to office today.
'
As I backed out my car from the driveaway, right behind me was a gorgeous sight. A sight truly to behold the wonders of God, the creator. 2 reasons why there isn't a picture to show off this wonderous sight is #1. I was late for work and Mum was hurrying me away #2. (You guessed it) Didn't have my cam with me. Sigh. Wasted only! Anyway, I'm hoping my description will allow you to visualize what I saw. :D I saw the hills in front of my house, shrouded with mist. It gave off the impression of a sight you'd get if you had a hotel room facing Mount Fuji. The blanket of mist seem to be moving around the mountain like it was wrapping itself around the mountain to keep it safe. At the rate humans are going about cutting down trees and mountains for 'development' - I am not suprise to see nature trying to save themselves from all this destruction. Sigh. It was REALLY a wondrous sight but I do not know when I will be able to see this again or if it will ever happen again.
'
The rate of development in Kulim is FANTASTICALLY fast. In just 6 months or so, Kulim Town has taken a 180 degree turn where development is concerned. I can hardly recognise it anymore. I really do regret not taking any pictures before all this development took place. It made me SO sad to these people chopping down HUGE, age old trees which provided superb shade and a sense of being one with nature. In the morning it was there, on the way back from work - whole tree is gone and the only sign that there ever was a tree before were a few scattered leaves blowing in the wind. Sigh. Sad but true.
;
When will we, humans realise that all this extensive development and destruction of nature for the so-called betterment (Is there such a word??) of mankind, will one day lead to our destruction and annihilation? What would it take to open our eyes? Will it be too late when we finally realise that we've come to the end of the road and there is no going back?
'
A lot of people have laughed at me especially when I'm at the store buying something and when they pack it up and give it to me in a plastic bag - I normally say that I can do without the plastic bag, and actually say out loud 'Save the earth!' They actually think it's funny and weird that I don't want a plastic bag to hold the 2 small items I bought when it can easily fit into my handbag. Will the same people be laughing when they realise that they won't have an earth to live on anymore? Well, I don't think so and you wouldn't either. So the next time someone says, 'Save the earth' - I suggest you take it seriously. *
'
Ps. Don't get your hopes up on second earth. No one knows for sure if it's possible. So why risk losing the only earth we have NOW?

Mistyeiz: I returned here for a visit after some lull, enoyed your offerings, Terima Kasih; may I invite thee also to a Teh-Tarik at Desi's?8/24/2005 06:00:00 PM|W|P|Blogger mistyeiz|W|P|dsidrata : yioh....desi, your bahasa very berbunga-bunga. cannot understand. :( anyway, i dropped by for teh tarik kurang manis but u werent in. :D8/21/2005 10:54:00 PM|W|P|mistyeiz|W|P|
Taaa-daa!! Now, my version of what happened during the Penang Bloggers meet today. Of course I'm not the FIRST to blog about this. :) Others were faster than me! Haha....I'm a bit of a slow coach. BUT I was the FIRST to arrive at Coffee Bean (So difficult to get parking - wah!! Lucky just in time one Waja was pulling out. Phew!), tergedik-gedik (loosely translated as over excited) to check out my fellow bloggers only to realise that I was FAR too early and thus I felt like some 'poor lost child', as quoted by Jeremy coz' he arrived just about 30 minutes after I did. Thank goodness I recognised his logo or he would look exactly that, a lost child. :D Since I arrived early, I went to get me a drink. Call me ulu, call me kiam siap (stingy) but the kopi ais iced cappuccino I ordered was the MOST expensive cup of coffee I have ever paid for. That diluted plastic cup of kopi ais iced cappuccino cost me RM9.24. I know a lot people frequent Coffee Bean like I do my fav road side mamak stall but man, now I remember why no one has spotted me in Coffee Bean before. As you can see from this picture, I made sure I did not waste a single drop - expensive lor!!! Bui tahan...*Wonders how people can afford sit for such long hours sipping on such expensive drinks, one after the other. Must remember ask around methods of printing money so I oso can drink cup after cup of kopi ais iced cappuccino.*
'
Shortly after I arrive (remember NO ONE was around then), my friend Azman turned up - the last time I saw this dude was some 6 years ago!!! We were studying in the SAME college and SAME class at one point. Fancy meeting him at Coffee Bean, o wait...almost everyone frequents Coffee Bean so, not really a suprise I guess. Anyway, thank goodness he was around or I'd have left earlier coz I didn't really know how any of the Penang bloggers look like (Yes, photos can deceive - not VERY reliable) and I was beginning to feel deserted. While chatting with Azman and catching with up the times, Peter arrived with Ee Yean and KS Tang. THIS time, I made the first move and effort to introduce myself after shying away the last time. :D What a feeling to see a familiar face! After that, more and more fellow bloggers started to turn up....Jeremy (he arrived after Peter & gang did), n305er, Lucia, Ong, Witty, Cmos, Kiasi, Frostier, Bryan, Ryan (Bryan's friend who reminded me of HK stars punya gaya - heh), Kenny, Lilian & her cute little son - so comel!!! Wanted to pinch his cheeks but he was too far away from me and mummy was nearby, so even if I could have - she might pinch me back, scared lor!! :P By the way, if I missed out anyone, sorry!! Please let me know and I'll update this post.
'
It was indeed really fun to meet up with some of the Penang bloggers, I'm sure there are many more out there and I think we should have ANOTHER meet again soon. It's a really nice change to LISTEN and share our thoughts on the spot, rather than to READ them on blogs. Not only have I met some of my fellow bloggers, I now have MORE friendly faces with whom I can relate too. Isn't that just wonderful? :D I think it is.
'
Ps. I don't have any picture to put up in here because almost EVERYONE was taking picture and there were camera flashes were going off all over the place and it really made me feel like some celebrity!! :D *Pssttt....got video lagi!!* By the way, I really don't know who took what pictures but I do know that n305er & Lilian have already uploaded some of them. Be sure to check them out! :D Oo oo oo...I oso got free web hosting for 6 mths...YAY!! All thanks to sweet Jeremy. :D Yup, he kept his word - a true gentleman, if not I will strangle him! Heh. *Now thinking what and how to get about using this web hosting thingy since I know nuts about what Jeremy is giving me in the first place!! Now who's the blur sotong....? Sigh.
'
*Can those who took pictures with me in it please send it to me at mistyeiz@yahoo.com? Rumber thanks! :D

Was a WONDERFUL day today....:) Penang blogger meet was FUN!! It was change to HEAR thoughts being shared rather than to READ it. Will blog more on that in my next post but for now, just a short one after reading Lucia's post just now.

Looking at all awful things are happening around us today, THIS could happen to us at any time. DO you think it's fair for God to just pull the plug if things get SO out of hand and messy? All that noise, all that hurt, all that turmoil.....ayaiyai, I would wanna pull the plug too.....wouldn't you?

I officially started blogging on 8/5/2005, when Friendster started introducing blogs as one of their added services. I knew nuts about blogging then and as a matter of fact, after some 3 months (OMG, I've only been blogging for three months but I feel like I've been blogging for ages!!), the only thing I've learnt about blogging is that blogging is a GREAT way to express ones happiness, joy, anger, sadness and stupidity (if that is your choice) , and not have anyone pass judgment on it - well, most of the time anyway. :) I didn't plan on 'migrating' over to Blogger but somehow, Friendster really disappointed me because the republishing of each post took ages!! And it really pissed me off....I was getting very irritated by its 'speed' and that's why I found myself another home - Blogger!! :D ' So far, I'm enjoying what Blogger is offering me however I am also at the same time quite intrigued by Word Press. I've actually created an account there too just to check out its features and I must admit that the thought of moving AGAIN is rather tempting BUT I don't know if I larat (really want to) or not. The skins are cute - not all but some are, especially the black and white pups (which is incidentally the skin I've chosen for my tester blog) and it's got Google Adsense ads built in for you too. Saves you the hassle of messing with your template. It's got loads of other features which will take ages if I were to describe every one of them but it's really interesting. How I wish all my posts in here could be merged over to WP, alas...I think it is not possible. :( And that is not good. Since I'm still in the process of learning about the pages and fooling around with it, don't be too worried about my moving over there too soon. :D All will be informed accordingly. A lot of our bloggers are using WP now...namely 5xmom and Macvaysia. I bet there are definitely a lot of people out there using WP and enjoying it too. 5xmom swears by it!! She's been busy promoting it in our Malaysian Blogger Forum. :D ' I actually did mention how this craze over blogging started for me here. And how I've grown to love blogging. For me, there is really no way of ever getting sick of it because it is mainly made up of thoughts and feelings that I have within me, penned down. I find it very interesting because there are millions out there who are blogging and blogging in their own style, their own words....not to mentioned their templates too! Amazing...simply amazing. Of couse not all blogs appeal to me - if everything appealed to me, I wouldn't be blogging anymore, I'd be blog hopping/reading!! Lol.... ' Another thing I've realise about blogging is that I am actually simultaneously getting my creative juices to flow and at the same time, make a few bucks because the more interesting my post is, the more visitors I have and the more visitors I have, the more clicks I will have added on my adsense. And THEN, Ka-ching!! :D Hahaha....ok, that's only partly true. It doesn't bother me if people don't click on my ads but it's nice to know that people are reading what I'm writing and if there are good comments, I take it in and appreciate it, not to mention that I will bathe in the compliments but if they are comments whih I don't agree with, I can't do anyting about and neither would I do anything about becuase suprisingly, these are the comments that will help me broaden my horizons. It helps me open my eyes to what I see not - and that is good. To me, there is always room for improvement and there is no such thing as stopping from improving because we are far from perfect. Thus, we must always strive to be the best we can. '' With that in mind, it's time for me to head off to bed. I'ma sleepy and need all the rest I can get. Tomorrow...no this afternoon, I mean - PENANG BLOGGERS MEET!!! WOooooHhooooo!!!

I've been blogging for ages now (since april 03) but for 2 years my blog was private. I didn't like to share my personal secrets with everyone. Well now after going through some major changes in life, I've found that I'm able to express myself much more clearer and better now, hence I decided perhaps it's time to create a public blog where I can connect with people of similiar wavelength and personalities. It's been one of the most exciting things I have to say. I'm already planning to move to word press under a paid web hosting site hopefully in the near future :)8/21/2005 07:56:00 PM|W|P|Blogger mistyeiz|W|P|kiasi : nice to meet u today! :) n u're right. :)8/21/2005 07:56:00 PM|W|P|Blogger mistyeiz|W|P|prashantH : good to hear. :) i don't know if i'm expressive enough or good with words but i do know that i cakap banyak! lol :P maybe that's why i like blogging. too many thoughts in my head which i need to get out, so what better way than blogging? :) looking forward to your new 'home'. :D8/21/2005 08:15:00 PM|W|P|Anonymous Anonymous|W|P|good blogand....maaarvelous template:p

Your dating personality profile: Liberal - Politics matters to you, and you aren't afraid to share your left-leaning views. You would never be caught voting for a conservative candidate. Religious - Faith matters to you. It is the foundation that you build your life upon. You trust that God has a plan for you. Adventurous - Just sitting around the house is not something that appeals to you. You love to be out trying new things and really experiencing life.Your date match profile: Practical - You are drawn to people who are sensible and smart. Flashy, materialistic people turn you off. You appreciate the simpler side of living. Big-Hearted - You want someone compassionate, someone gentle and kind. A loving, nurturing person will fill that hole in your life. Adventurous - You are looking for someone who is willing to try new things and experience life to its fullest. You need a companion who encourages you to take risks and do exciting things.

Take the Online Dating Profile Quiz at Dating Diversions ' I actually agree with most of what has been said about me EXCEPT #1 - that is untrue. I truly dislike politics. I don't talk about politics and I don't really take notice if it either. *Shrugs* O well.....going through tests such as this is fun but frankly, do you really believe that it can tell what you're made up of or what you are? I doubt it really. sometimes I realise that I can't even figure out what I want myself - how can a program which has been designed based on a few similar results or answers be what that I'm searching for? In any case, I'm glad to say that the other traits (almost) all reflect me and as for what I'm searching for in my partner - I'm happy to note that I've already found it all. *Blush* ; Ps. Update on my handphones loss : I've bought me another one today - Nokia 1100, now only RM240 (Humph! Come to think of it, it's cheaper than my 3315 which I bought for RM315, I dunno if it's cheaper else where, but I bought it from the first store I saw, hate shopping for phones. Bleech!). Feeling a small pinch now *sniff sniff* but hey, all I can say it its definitely not RM25k! :D Lol.....just as long as I can receive calls and make calls.

What turned out to be the beginning to a wonderful weekend has now become the worst. Sigh. The worst thing that could ever happen to a mobile phone owner has happened to me. In four words - I lost my handphone. Sigh. I can't believe it and am still in a state of shock. I've NEVER misplaced anything expensive and to have this happen to me seems the most horrible thing to happen. Sigh. I wanna blame Rohit (my colleague who has since left for the US) for this mishap but I can't because after careful consideration, I've come to the conclusion that it was instant retribution for being a wee bit nasty. Sigh. ' It was 5.15pm and I received a parcel containing Rohit's cheque and I was asked to bank it in for him. Making my way to the bank I knew that I had to write down a contact number on the cheque before dropping it in so I took my phone with me to write his number down. Half way filling up the form I realise that he would not be using his Malaysian number and decided to write down the office number. While filling up the form, I noticed an elderly lady and her daughter beside me. She kept looking at me, hoping to catch my attention but I pretended not to notice because I had no intention of hanging around any longer than I already had. (Yes, it was bad of me but it was ALREADY 5.15pm....I was going to leave for home in 15 minutes! What do you expect??) Rushing to fill up the form, I looked up and was making my way to drop in the cheque when the lady asked me to fill up one form so she could follow suit. I was in seriously no mood to layan (entertain) the lady so decided to do the next best thing - told her kid how to fill up the form and then I went to drop the cheque in the box and left hurriedly. After stepping out, I realise I forgot to collect the slip of acknowledgement so return to see if there was any. Suprisingly, there was none but the lady was still there. I made a quick getaway before she noticed me and hurried back to the office. But I was pretty sure she saw me though. *Shrugs* ' I didn't notice that I had left my phone behind until I was about to leave at 5.45pm (was still busy surfing the net in the office since boss had already gone home). I panicked and I couldn't think where my handphone was and was cracking my head about it and SUDDENLY, it hit me. I left it at the counter at the bank!!!! I quickly rushed out to check but I knew deep down inside that my poor baby was gone and sure enough, there was no traces of his existence anywhere. :( To say that I wanted to cry because I was upset would be wrong because I was upset and pissed off at my own carelessness more than losing the phone. I still cannot believe that I lost my handphone due to my carelessness. Sigh. It's totally unbelievable since I've had that phone for the past 2 years and it still looks new. The bastard who took would have made some cash out of it if he traded it in. Damn! ' I tried giving the phone a call (Yea, like as if the person who found it would answer and admit taking it *slaps forehead*) and obviously the phone would be off. Most likely the sim card had been thrown away and my phone on the way to some handphone shop. Sigh. I quickly called up my service provider and barred my line. Sigh. There goes a perfectly fine phone. It was working fine and was giving me no problems - why was I so careless?!?!?! Sigh. I'm off to get me a new one tomorrow. Although it's the most valid reason to get a new phone, I was SO unready for it to happen this way. I am SO totally upset about this. Yes, I may be taking it to hard but hey, I'm just pissed off....really I am. Sigh. Enough of sighing la.....dunno how many minutes of my life has been wasted from all this sighing. Sigh. ' Good night ya'll...have a good weekend, hang on tight to your handphones and be good.....sigh. ' Ps. Lesson learnt today : There is always time to help someone in need. I could have saved me some money and felt good about myself. But now, I feel like crap. :( That's instant retribution for you. Sigh.

So I noticed that a lot of people are doing this - write about themselves in a post and make it into a link. I think it's good and a great opportunity to tell the whole wide world my readers a little bit about what I'm actually made up of.
'
Things You Should Know About Me:-
'
1. I love animals but I still eat (some of) them, thus I'm not a vegan, never had the intention to become one. And will never be one so....BITE ME!
2. I'm the eldest in the family and yes, that gives me the right to bully my sister.
3. I am Catholic and I believe in God, the Father Almighty but that doesn't stop me from loving every page of Dan Brown's Angels & Demons and Da Vinci Code.
4. I nearly had a nervous breakdown and wanted to jump off Penang Bridge all because I couldn't do a programming assignment. Thus, I hate programming.
5. I was working and studying part-time at one point, so don't tell me that studying is hard or working is worst. I've done BOTH simultaneously - I know what hell is and I'm lucky to still be alive too!
6. I think I am fun to be with, patient (but not with kids), lovable, understanding, funny and kinky - therefore I am as mentioned.
7. I love my body that's why I like to decorate it with piercings and tattoo(s). If you don't like it, I really don't give a rats ass about it. And no, God isn't mad at me for having tattoos and here's why.
8. I love snail mailing and I've mentioned it here and this is prove. :D
9. When my crazy friends and I meet up, nothing is impossible.
10. I am proud to be of Indian descent but I don't bother to go into detail. Indian is Indian, why give others and yourself a headache by giving a long lecture on where your ancestors came from? No one cares!
11. Despite having many Government heads who have no idea what the hell they are doing to the system, I'm proud to be Malaysian and that I live in a peaceful, (almost) non-violent, (almost) free country.
12. I cannot tolerate spoilt brats and ill-mannered children and believe that such kids need to be reminded that the world does not spin around them even if it means some spanking and caning. Didn't kill me when I got me some stripes, so I don't think it would kill them either.
13. I do not believe in 'ignorant is bliss' nor 'what you don't know, won't hurt you' coz it can get you into a LOT of unnecessary trouble.
14. I play the organ and tambourine (be it as sissy as that sounds) at church and my church choir rocks! *As complimented by a TEENAGER. A compliment you don't get everyday and if I could I would print it out and get it framed up.*
15. I am sometimes a procastinator and tend to put things off if I can. I'm not proud of it but sometimes it does come in handy.
16. Despite being a procastinator (See #15), I like to be organised and know how things are being handled. I am meticulous when it comes to travel arrangements and do not take well to certain spontaneous activities. Particularly the traveling kind. Can't you blame me for NOT wanting to be stranded in Istanbul when I should have arrived in Paris instead??
17. I love making personalised cards and gifts and always hope for the same in return. However, due to such 'high' expectations (because I know not everyone is as thoughtful or creative as I am), I am *sometimes* disappointed with my gifts. But that doesn't mean I don't appreciate them all the same. What I really hate about getting gifts is when I get something which I had specifically mentioned over and over again with the hope of NOT getting it and then I DO. Sigh. KG knows best.
18. I am of mixed parentage and have been mistaken to be Malay or Punjabi but never the 2 other races which I am actually made up of, Indian and Eurasian (Eurasian+Chinese). Bizarre....
19. I love my name and wouldn't change it even if given the chance to, because I love to see peoples facial reactions when they find out how my name is spelt. Priceless.
20. I do not believe in male chauvinism and wish I could wipe it off the face of the earth. However, it cannot be done if women continue to be the cause if it.
21. I do not believe in material pampering which I notice is fast becoming a norm because there is no stopping or turning back once the wheels are in motion. (Based on personal observation and #12) 22. I have miraculously mastered the art of parallel parking and have to admit that I can 'sometimes better than some of my male colleagues'. Such a compliment from a man is something any woman should hang on to for dear life. :D 23. I can't swim to save myself but I love snorkeling. (19/8/2005)

Note : I didn't think there was so much about me that I could write about but obviously there is. So I'm going to keep this link open and will update as I grow and learn more about myself. :D In reality, life is a never ending lesson. ' Ps. Additional information will be in colored fonts and please also note that the comment box has been disabled simply because you have no right comment ABOUT me. I am who I am, good or bad - I am ME. :D

I used to read a LOT of (story) books when I was growing up so much so that I'm now stuck with glasses. I blame reading too much while lying down in the dark for it. Then again, maybe it is really because I watched too much tv at such a close range. What to do? Cannot see, so go closer to the TV la. Now see? Have to wear spectacles - bleeech! :P So, to the children out there who have stumbled upon this sacred haven of mine - hear ye, hear ye!! Don't sit too close to the tv while you're watching it for hours on end AND don't lie down in a dim room if you want to read your history text book to fall asleep (I know you do it - I did it many times before). Who would have thought that growing up was so tough? Ever notice how jumbled and confused teenagers are? Or how marvelously aloof they seem? Oblivious to the reality that's happening around them but seem trapped in that tiny secret world they have, conquered by Linkin' Park and Avril Lavigne? Shessh, back in my time it was New Kids On The Block and Bon Jovi (and YES!!!! They still rock!!! Thank goddess...)
'
I also remember how easy it was to have multiple crushes on the boys in school. It sort of reminds me of Sweet Valley High (SVH). Don't know how many of you have read this series of stories about teens and what life was all about for them in school. But I used to read this a lot because my cousin had a whole stack of it and when I used to visit her during the school holidays, I could always be found in her room with my face in one of the MANY books on SVH - totally engrossed in it. I used to wonder why it was so different over there and how come we didn't have prom night after Form 5. I bet it would have been the most happening thing that could EVER happen in school. Then again, we had a substitute for that I guess - Installation Night. Normally organised by the elite group at school, Interact Club. Ahh....those were the days.
'
Coming back to having crushes with almost every Ali, Mutu & Chong.....it's really funny how a crush works. Wordnet defines crush as "puppy love, calf love, infatuation (temporary love of an adolescent)". Yup, you noticed it too, didn't you? Calf love???? O well. Putting that into my own words and personal experience, a crush is when you feel you face hot as you blush when you see that cute guy you like and he suddenly turns to look at you and smile, or when you suddenly become some salivating speechless moron when he says 'hi' to you and actually made the effort to make small talk with you while waiting for the bus, or when you heart skips more than a beat causing major palpitations as his leg accidentally brushes against yours in the library or when his hand accidently touches yours as he stretches out from across the table to take the newspaper, or when you go out to the movies in a group and he ends up sitting beside you and his cologne fills you up until it makes you whoozy and half the time you're so busy taking in his perfume, you don't know what the hell is showing and above all, when he's seems to be the only reason you look forward to going to school everyday - just so you get all flustered and have butterflies fluttering in your tummy, just by looking at him.
'
That my friend, was how I felt about my FIRST and last, major crush. That blardy crush lasted me 6 freaking years. As pathetic as it sounds, I funnily never gave up on him. I always had that little flickering lamp for him despite knowing that I would NEVER get a chance to be with him. I was WAY out of his league....he was like that pretty butterfly that all the catchers wanted as their trophy and I was merely an ugly moth. Despite all that negative thought, I had always held on to that last straw - hope. It's funny how wonderful being in his presence made me felt. I don't know what it is about him that makes me swoon at the mere sight of him, that I feel all light-headed when he smiles at me or how I lose track of time when he's talking to me. Shessh.....I was REALLY pathetic back then. It took me a LONG time to realise that I really meant nothing to him. That there wasn't going be any fire to light with him nor would there be any special moments with him. It really hurt me so much to see him 'serious' with other girls, (just because you're in school doesn't mean you're blind to what is going on around you especially when it concerns the 'love' of your life) - and I can tell you he had MANY. Sigh.
'
Despite it all, I'm really glad that we didn't end up together though. The one thing I've learnt from this very hurting experience is that being disappointed by someone you like very much is devastating especially when you've had feelings for him for as long as I did. And because I had those feelings for so long and even kept in touch with him after he left the country for studies, it gave me a clear view of what he was really made up of - he grew up to be suave, charming, handsome and O, so heavenly built too - typical buaya (player). The kind who'd swallow you whole and spit you out in bits and pieces. Ouch indeed! I definitely wasted 6 freaking years on him, thank goodness it was while I was growing up, phew! When the crush of your life crushes you, man....it hurts like hell - especially when you're growing up. Teenagers are sensitive creatures - really. See, I can still remember all those times like it happened yesterday. And I'll never forget my first slow dance with him either. :) But that's another story. :D However, I can tell you that it was the BEST ever birthday do I ever had. And most likely the CLOSEST I've ever and will ever be to him. Lol....
'
Come to think of it, it's been years since I last saw him and just spoke to a friend who informed me that he was back in town. I wonder....could he still make my legs turn to jello with that killer smile of his and that rock hard body? I don't know and given the choice, I'd rather not find out but then again....for old times sake, why not? :)

"About Me" - It's friday and just came back from a "heavy" discussion on the system, I am tired and having a headache. So, I read your post, I thought I saw this..."I love animals but I still eat (some of) them, thus I'm not a virgin, never had the intention to become one..." Luckily I had the energy to re-read it and confirmed that it is VEGAN not VIRGIN...ha ha ha (kinda of funny if you misinterpret it..he he)
.
"Crush" - When I was in school, I was on the "other side" (means the boy who was admired by couple of girls...really...honest), it was refreshing. I did not know that I broke the girls heart as I was more towards finishing my education. It must have hurt when I said no for their invitation to go out for a movie...8/19/2005 10:29:00 PM|W|P|Blogger mistyeiz|W|P|BJ : #1 - VERY funny lar....:P lucky u clarified again. if not buta only my saham turun. hahahaha!! #2 - of course it would be refreshing if all the girls worshipped the ground u walked on, i would feel the same but i bet it nvr crossed ur mind how it would feel like to b on the other side of the fence right? :) i'm not suprised really...SOMEONE has to suffer right? just lucky it wasnt u.

Continuing my stroll down memory lane and as far as my memory can take me, I had one hell of a f-ed up teen life. Not only was it almost non-existent, I was that kid you didn't even know existed. The only thing that made me stand out (Thank goddess!) was perhaps my height and my name. Aahhh yes, if only I could shrink back to that size. Sigh.
'
Being a teenager must be the worst stage in ones life. It's like as if you're neither here nor there. What makes it worst is the fact that you feel this rebellious streak in you because your hormones are just going crazy and you have no idea how to deal with it. Well, that is what normally happens to NORMAL teenagers, right? With me, I didn't quite have such an exciting life. Now, now...please, I don't need sympathy for it. As much as I hated my teenager life, there was SOME fun while I was there. Funny thing is, the only thing I can clearly remember is this girl Goh E.H. Back in primary school, we were the bestest of friends. We'd have sleep overs, we'd go swimming together (well, she would be the one swimming and I would be the one flapping around like a drowning elephant), I mean.....we were just like any pair of best friends you see around. Always together - and I thought it would remain that way for the rest of my life. How wrong I was. The only thing that REALLY stood out for me during my secondary school days was how I hated going to school at ONE point. Remember how I mentioned that kids can be so cruel? Well, this is the PERFECT example.
'
Form 1, the time where you get split up from your Standard 6 classmates coz you get streamed into difference classes based on racial quota (That was THEN, now? God knows how they do it these days) and no one made a fuss about it. We just went with the flow and I ended up having almost NONE of my old classmates with me except for PD and VK. So since we were in the same school from before and now in the same class with 30 other new faces, what more could you expect a bunch of giggly teens to do?? You see a girl and 2 boys together most of the time because we were a 'clique'. Goh was no longer close to me and that also meant that I had lost 2 other good friends too - Cindy and Yati, o...not forgetting Loges too. Then again, at that time she wasnt THAT close to me either but no loss I guess.
'
I don't know WHAT happened but suddenly Goh became this really horrid person. She began making fun of me, calling me names and the WORST thing she ever called me was 'pizza face' and seriously, that has scarred me for life all because I had a VERY bad case of acne when I was growing up. I still have these outbreaks but I don't really care about them anymore. But at THAT time, it was a major slap to the face and it really hurt me to think that this girl was once my BEST friend in the whole wide world. Things got SO bad that I didn't want to go to school anymore. Goh somehow managed to hasut (instigate) the others to join forces with her against me. I mean, wtf??? For what??? Just coz I was like Lone Ranger in school didn't mean that I enjoyed the immense attention, you know? Instead of looking forward to school, I used to dread it when morning came. It was like living in a nightmare - it was REALLY such a torment. ' Finally, my dad informed the discipline teacher who coincidently was his friend. So she called us in to the office the next day and kind of warned Goh with me there of course. As much as I loved seeing Goh's face turn to rainbow colors, I was afraid to step out of the office - who know what dark evils lurked around the corner, you know? Suprisingly, she backed down and kept her distance. Only once did she try to flame me again, but it was a one-girl show. No one followed her after that. *Breathes with relief* ' Life was a bed of roses and school was my hang out after she left. Her family moved and I finally found out what 'good riddance to bad rubbish' really meant. Happy Yvy!! :D Life was fine after that.....the devil was gone and we were all cleansed. Suprisingly, Loges became quite close to me and thank goddess that we still keep in touch. I'm glad too. Sometimes it's really great to meet up with people from school. Brings back all those (not so) wonderful memories. It's all good really. ' Just recently (not really - unless you mean 1 year ago), I met up with a few of my friends from school and we were reminiscing old times and what a shocker I got when I found out that Goh's turn GAY!! She's a lesbo. O M G!!!! To think that we were THAT close and we used to do a lot of stuff together and....and...and....O M F G!!!! I've been contaminated!!! I have been 'TOUCHED'!! *Okla, just exaggerating* But seriously, I don't think I'm THAT surprised about it really....she was always very tom boyish and rough, not that I wasn't. We both were and I guess subconsciously she knew that someone had to be the 'man' right? Thank goddess it weren't me. Phew! ' I think I finally found out for myself why she did all those horrid stuff to me. I think she was upset that I no longer held her up on the pedestal that I used when we were together. Maybe she was jealous that I was always with PD & VK...who knows? I will never know and I don't wanna know. Last I heard, she was patronizing the girls in Denmark. I swear I heard her laugh that one time in Gurney Plaza. I SWEAR! I could never forget that donkey-braying laugh she has. One of a kind and I KNOW it was her...I JUST KNOW IT!!!
