Have a Great Day!

When you suffer a setback it is hard not to sigh,
When you are down on your luck it is hard not to get discouraged.
But When you lose hope,
And be in a drunken stupor all day,
Then you are souless with a body, like a scarecrow.
Life can be compared to waves on the sea,
Sometimes it rises, and sometimes fall.
Good luck, bad luck -
We still have to work.
For 30% is determined by heaven, while 70% is how much you strive for.
Only those who work hard can succeed.

Wrap Up 2010

2010 is finally coming to an end. *no joke!*

Well 2010 has really been an eventful year for me. So many changes took place in my life. Some for the better some well not so.

Right at the beginning of the year was pretty strange, full of uncertainty. I just finish my last paper as a student and went to Bangkok for a few days before 2010. I started of 2010 with nervousness I might say. What was I suppose to do now that its all over. What do I do? Work? Continue a master program? Travel the world?

Well after praying really really hard, going for exhibitions, talking to people, praying again, going for interviews it seems I was to enter the working world. And so here I am, at work. It took my 7 interviews to finally land a job. Could definitely have been more.

This year, there were some life changing? moments..
Firstly on my list would be getting the dengue fever from the little flying vampires. Wow was that tough. I spent a good 7 days lying on the hospital bed. Basically I was fed panadol and got my blood checked every day... till the second last day where my blood count drop below what the doctor was comfortable with. With that he decided he better get my blood checked TWICE a day. So the nurse came and drew blood twice a day for two days. NOT NICE.

Oh and on the panadol I've roughly did a calculation on how many I had.
4 hours = 2 biji
24 hours = 12 biji
7 days = 84 biji

2 days before dengue I was already on panadol
6 hours = 2 biji
24 hours = 8 biji
2 days = 16 biji

Total dengue panadol consumption in 9 days
84+16 = 100 biji
* note I think these are AT LEAST. Cause in between these weeks there were a couple of times where my temperature spiked and I got a special kind of panadol.

Alot of panadol's eh?

The next life changing experience I think was when I skidded around on the highway. One second I was listening to the radio exiting the highway, next thing I knew I was going in a circle. Oh this plus another accident the same week. I got involved in a 5 car pile up on the North South Expressway. I think the PLUS people closed the highway a good 10 minutes because of us. Nasty jam we caused I tell ya! From these two car related accident I BELIEVE I drive more slowly now. Not SLOW, but slower.

Some of the more memorable things this year. Hmm.
I started work, got my first pay check! I believe ever college/uni kid out there has a list of Things-To-Buy with their very first pay check. I was no different. I had an ridiculous long list as well. However with my first pay check I bought my self a pair of Nike running shoes. My very first pair of Nike shoes. That was also because of my new? hobby, running around :) Bata shoes, well they dont provide enough support to the knees. Hurts after a few kilometers.

That was the first thing I got. And the last. It was impossible to fulfill the Things-To-Buy list! I guess the more you earn the more things you want. A never ending cycle. I guess the best is to be content with what you have.

I can't wait for next year! What's install, all the new changes and events and also partially I'm gonna spend the first week of next year in a far far away land. 3 hours 50 minutes to be exact. :) Most probably more on that next post?

Till next time.

Merry CHRISTmas to all and to all a happy new year!

Handicap. What's it like being handicap? Well now Ive got a chance to "feel" whats it like. Well not really what's it like, just maybe 1% handicapped.

Last week I got into an accident. A very stupid could have been prevented accident, more like I did this on myself type of accident. I shall not talk about how I got it but rather how its been being "handicapped". So now Ive got my leg stitched up, yes stitched up and bandaged nicely Im all set to be "handicapped" for awhile.

Yes, you see handicapped people everywhere, day in day out until they make no difference whatsoever in your life. You do. Dont deny it. Well since Im stitched up now, I take a second to think how fortunate I am that my disability is only temporary every time I see someone who is actually handicapped. For life.

Being "handicapped" makes doing daily activities a whole lot difficult. Simple things you wouldnt have to use your brain activities requires some effort. Taking a shower is tricky, you gotto make sure the bandaged part doesnt get wet.

Walking about is also hard. You basically can hobble around, not walk. I think Im gettin better at this hobbling part.

Lastly being "handicapped", means I cant jog/carry my weights for a week or two which for me is the HUGEST draw back of this accident. AIIIIII!!!

Life : The Next Chapter

Well, it has been two weeks since I embarked on this new journey in life. The working life. Im currently workin at KL. Technology Park Malaysia, beside Bukit Jalil. It is a totally new way of life, of what Ive been used too. Being a student is the bestest thingy ever. I basically wanna make a comparison of life here and back home.

1. Traffic
Here: Traffic here is fast!
Home: I thought I drove fast till I came here. Wow. Now Im the one driving slow

2. Traffic lights #1
Here: Once the light turns green people actually start moving!
Home: Once the light turns green people start realizing it, think about it, look for clutch, look for gear number 1 then moove.

3. Traffic lights #2
Here: When the light turns green the fourth or third car will automatically start blaring their horns as if you were asleep and forgot to move.
Home:People tend to wait patiently with the car infront if they dont move.

4.Traffic lights #3
Home:If the green was on long, before it starts flickering, people will already slow down.

5.Traffic lights #4
Here:People will get as close to you
Home:You can fit a truck in between!

Here:5 bucks for lunch here is possible. You gotta look around, watch what you pile up on your plate.Drinks maybe...depends
Home:5 bucks for anythin and everythin. Yes, drinks included.

7.Small brains
Here:Plenty of wannabes. Kelisas horning and flashing high beam on Porches, Alphards, Mercs, BMWs. Yes, I notice its Kelisas. Anybody care to explain why??
Home:They drive and block up the fast lane. This is general la, not Kelisas. ALL* cars block the fast lane. Dunno whats it for meh!?

Here:Go here go there pay toll

9.Car Park
Here:5 bucks a day? Hmm..not bad. Reasonable.
Home:Must put parking coupon ar? Walaowei the gobermen blahblahblahblahblah

I am surivin! woohoo! Atleast theres the pay here. Which is uh. not enough to cover expenses and loans. But at least once back home I can turn the brain OFF till the next morning. Somethin unlike students can do. Which I do miss! Hahahah

The Road Not Taken - Robert Frost (1874–1963)

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth; 5

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same, 10

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back. 15

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. HOPEFULLY!
