Re: Just Do It

It's indescribable when you bumped into an old friend's blog and you realised your name is on it and you're appreciated that much that you're one of the force that provides him motivation to strive on when he encounters problems, pressure, disappointment in life somewhere hundred miles away. You'd feel the friendship, the relationship is being treasured. :)

回忆

人,在不同的阶段,往往有不同的想法。 不同的时候,听到某些歌曲,会有特别的感触。最近成为我重播曲第一名的莫过于这首“外面的世界”。勾起了好多美丽的回忆,好久都没好好安静的一个人在房里听着歌,翻阅些旧照片,翻读些旧信息。发现好多的小细节都似乎已藏到记忆里的某一个角落。有些当时把它看成比什么都重要的事情,现在看起来它反而是件芝麻小豆的事。有些当时为它哭得死去活来的事情,现在看起来它反而是件让我成长的东西。有些当时执著万分的事情,现在看起来都不以为然了。

最重要的是,看着。。。想着。。。听着。。。那些照片,回忆及歌曲,它们还是勾起了我的嘴角,微笑了。: )

oat?

Thanks for everyone's concern. Grandpa is better now, after the brain operation in Specialist Centre. Was observed in the ICU for 2 days, and transfered out to normal ward this morning. Can barely talk, but improving. :)


These were taken when we visited him at his house last week before the operation. He could not really talk that time, so he asked for pen and paper to write. After a few trial of 丿,一, 丿, 一, the words were finally formed, "我要吃。。。麦" oh!! i shouted, "he wants to eat oat!!!" "nonono, not oat not oat" mom said. So we observed for another while, there was another charater behind that merely looked like, "面". oooooooohhhh.....he wrote the traditional chinese charater "麵" (noodle) which i never give a thought of it at all, that he could be writing in the traditional form. If there were only me, i would have fetched him a whole big bowl of oat, lol~! he then must feel that the energy spent to write was all wasted or this grand daughter was just iliterate.

Managed to spoon feed him the whole plate of "chee cheong fun" and he liked it =) Good job, ah kong!

May the prayers be with him

His health has deteriorated. Was sent to the hospital on emergency, we rushed to the hospital and stayed by his side all the time by holding his hand tight in mine, except for the time he was pushed into the scanning and x-ray theatre. He was semi-conscious, but he was able to recognise me and call my name. Doctor said he could have fallen down and knocked on the same spots few times before, to cause the blood in the brain. Was then admitted to the Intensive Care Unit. Only one person was allowed to go in at one time, so i went in, he was so weak, but he tried his best to talk to me.

The next day, he was transfered out to normal ward although i don't see much improvement. We spent a fair bit of time with him, he could still barely talk something that made us laugh. Things that we could understand was, he wanted to sponsor RM500 for all the family members to go have a feast at some famous shop in Teluk Bahang, lol. He asked for forgiveness from grandma for not spending enough quality time with her during younger age. As he always, always sings me 世上只有妈妈好 everytime i see him, he advised us that we must be filial to mom and be good among siblings. Sometimes, he switched to English channel too, lol. He's just so cute. I love him vy much. A pic of us by his bed side while he was talking to us.


There was once when we were holding him, the heartbeat machine gave out RED alert and loud 'beep beep beep" sound. Nurses came steadily to check on the equipment, while sis and me trying to touch and call him. "still here, still here, the nerves' pumping" sis said. "okokok......" phewww....

The following day, surprisingly he was sent home despite he's still semi-conscious. Guess he was too old for operation. But then, still.....HE IS NOT FULLY CONSCIOUS. how can they just send him back? that is GH, they just don't care. omg, i can't believe that and the fact on how they treat patients there.

Anyway, what we can do now is to pray for him and spend more time w him.

He is my lovely grandpa. :)

experience...

Important Mission

I Love Him! :)

遗憾 - 方炯镔

It's been repeating on my home desktop, car mp3, workstation for over hundred times d... =)

别再说是谁的错 让一切成灰

除非放下心中的负累 一切难以挽回

你总爱让往事跟随 怕过去白费

你总以为要体会人生 就要多爱几回

与其让你在我怀中枯萎 宁愿你犯错后悔

让你飞向梦中的世界 留我独自伤悲

与其让你在我爱中憔悴 宁愿你受伤流泪

莫非要你尝尽了苦悲 才懂真情可贵

090909

Never had i ever expected that 090909 would be the last day my dad stayed with us at home. We walked him the last journey that very morning, passed by our old house aka his office and sent him off for cremation. Every steps on the street holding onto his hearse were the heaviest footsteps ever for me to complete that journey.

It was certainly a loss to our family but on the bright side, dad did not suffer that long, he did not want to bring trouble to us i guess as he was supposed to start kidney dialysis the following week, as we went to learn about dialysis in the hospital that very afternoon when my late father passed on in the evening. i can still feel the warmth of his body when i touched him that time but it became colder and colder. i can see he had what bro last bought him in his mouth, his favourite food - mamak rice.

To make myself feel better, at least i spent the last few days for hours each with him sitting by his bed talking, joking, fetching water, medicine, food, changing cloth, massaging, taking his advices, etc. as i always consult him for business ideas and cookery recipes. One of his last requests to me was to bring him small radio so he can listen when we were not in the hospital with him, so i adjusted and prepared all the channels that he may love on my Sony Bean and had it brought to the hospital by sis and taught him how to operate that little thing on that afternoon. Sis brought it to him, taught him, but he never had the chance to listen to it anymore. He once told me that Sony has very good sound system and was eager to listen to it when i told him i was bringing him my Sony Bean. It was very heartaching when i had to pick that up from the drawer next to his body, together with all his clothing and belongings home.

These were the last 2 things i prepared on the week before that dad had the chance to eat and comment. Yam Puff and Ulam Bee Hoon. Dad hearts my ulam bee hoon alot, he even requested for it the day before he left us, but due to the saltiness, i told him that i would make it again for him when he is discharged. well, he could not wait nomore....dad is a very good chef, he can cook almost everything you can find outside. And he's a strong believer that in order to keep a family relationship intact, cooking is one of the most important criterias. He's always told me this. Yes dad, i will be a good chef one day too for my family.



Well, tomorrow will be dad's birthday (coincidentally the western n lunar date fall on the exact same day this year), but we have to call it "Ming Kee" 冥忌 now. Will go to pray and visit dad tomorrow morning. Remember the last time i said i love you to him, he was very happy.

I Love You Dad! May Amithaba leads you to His Holy Land. You'll always be dearly remembered.

Heal The World


Woke up on a gloomy-nice-to-sleep-in Saturday early morning to this meaningful event EM Mudball Throwing - to save the mother earth, hah!

and this is how beautiful and clean Gurney Drive is *shameful* can't they just clean up the rubbish before the event at least?! don't understand..!!

so there were around 160,000 balls arranged by the drive.


here the powerful mudballs are!

the effort is all done by private sectors & schools children (after i got home from here only realised that there is a picture my sis doing the mudballs in school displaying in her room, she knew it before me! honestly, i heard about EM mudball only on the day before)
here is our Eng ko supporting the event. Go Green Penang! this is followed by the no-plastic day on every Monday. to the uncles behind, sorry hah, u might be capturing the picture of me instead of Eng ko or just his backside =P

close-up of CM (but why are you wearing such a non-environmental friendly P-L-A-S-T-I-C gloves??)

1....2....3.....THROW!!!!

Heal The World was playing behind the event, my fav MJ's song - if you care enough for the living, make a better place, for you and for me.
video


everybody else was doing the same, some tried real hard.

....and more ppl along the Gurney Drive.
so while ppl were busy throwing, there i was taking the opportunity to snap one with the CM. i look pretty "chan" though without any make up or anything, basically just jumped out of bed, and GO...!
the result of the mudballs war, hopefully it'll do some good deed to our very much polluted sea/river.


Adios~! i will come back again in 2 months time to see the CHANGES and hopefully WONDERS the mudballs do.

You're a Star

Have you forgotten how great you are through times when nobody else reminds you so?
Have you started to believe that you’re just another man on earth struggling to survive through hard times?
Have you begun to admit that you’re a big fat rat running in the race and accept the fact that even if you win the race you’re still a rat?

Has it been a long time since you last truly rest your mind, body and soul, unload all the burden that is built up?
Has it been a long time since you last release your emotion in front of somebody you can really trust and understand you?
Has it been a long time since you last remove the make-up you might have put on on the stage of life?

For once, today, I’ve finally seen some words that reach my heart, I must admit they mean so much and remind me of something I’ve forgotten for so long.

It seems to me that you are a star - an out of reach star from far away sky. I am happy for your wonderful life. You always have nice friends around... It's still in the back of my mind though. One of these days in my life, I am going to reach for the star of my dream, touch her, feel her, talk to her, have a meal with her, and so on. Keep that star shining for me, would you?

I promise I must keep the star shining. :)

Saturday, June 20, 2009

can i?

Wish to just hit the jackpot and go on a world tour.

Letting go all the worries, all the problems, all the uncertainties, all the gossips, all the pressure, all the commitments, all the responsibilities. Heading to happiness, hopes, opportunities, adventures, freedom, dreams..........perhaps?

Can one do that? to escape from the so-called life pre-defined process and live it different way?

Paid - Dua Ratus Ringgit

Since i've got no choice, so i went to find out the website and paid for my summons. that's true, online payment within 30 days entitled for 30-50% discount. so i get some discount also. Original: RM300; Discounted: RM200.

This was the process...
1. A frus customer visits the page, knowing he/she got to pay for summons.
2. Found one summons listed. Ok fine, Tick to Pay.
3. Waooo, can pay by credit card...
4. Entered all credit card information.

5. Wait for it to load for AGESSsssss........(you know how efficient & reliable their system is)

6. To get this........


7. Alright, try again....
8. Re-entered credit card information.
9. Waited for another few minutes.......

10. To get the same thing! (customer:"you want me to pay or what now??")
11. Nevermind, be patient, try again.
12. Re-entered all credit card information. (oh, by the way, RM2 for e-service)

13. Waited patiently....few minutes passed....

14. What the.........!!!


15. Am i going to try again or what? (getting more unwilling to pay now)
16. Entered card info, waited, ERROR; entered card info, waited, ERROR...............!! (wondering if my card had been charged? gosh, 5 times already)

saman!!

i kena saman! got the pink card 2 days ago to my old house from the registered pos laju, nobody attended to it, so i needa go to post office to collect, not knowing what mystery gift was that. one thing wondering in my mind, could it be intel sending me my long overdue EA form since the ex-employee personnel told me that they had sent out? "hello? i dont need it anymore as i've already submitted my income tax" but still i want to know what was that.

shiiiiiiiittt....when i saw URUSAN SERI PADUKA BAGINDA on that big piece of paper! i would rather not wasting my effort to go collect that damn paper that would cost me more. fine, opened it up, it says my driving speed was 84km/h and the speed limit was 70km/h, yes, at that very road, Lebuhraya Sg Nibong, end of last month. The system in Malaysia is to hide the speed trap camera and happily waiting to catch you on the spot, so they become richer in a way. On the other hand, the system in other countries, is to warn you and let you know up front where the speed traps are located so the people would slow down to be safe. see the difference? the latter serves the purpose more, right?

Good, they are very effective at this thing. They are even more rajin to stand by the road side everyday to earn some pocket $. This is a fact, a Malaysian fact, sadly. Why can't they put a little effort on those Mat Rempit or watever they are calling it now, Samseng Jalanan, which Penang state is at Top 2 in Malaysia? or put some effort on the real crimes? Do you know Malaysia has one of the most number of Government Officials in the WORLD, yet our public services are at this quality? It's at the proportion of 1:23, can you imagine that? 1 serving only 23. it's a shame.

Ok stop the crap, now, i need to pay. got 50% discount if pay online? ok lor....pay....else later police comes and asks me to go to court then susah...............ishhhhhh~!!!

You think my mails can reach the intended recipients? hmmm.....

Wednesday, May 06, 2009

Lost

back to square one, life's been so boring nowadays. arrrhhhhgggg it feels exactly like i'm waiting to be sentenced. i can't go anywhere anytime i like, as i hate to say the most, i need to reserve my leave =( no longer having the few days off work every week, that allows me to just GO! to just go and do things that is motivating to me. i hate to have this reason now attached to me to say that, "i have no leave" and not, "i can go anytime, you let me know your schedule ok?"

why do i need to spend my time looking at such dummy things everyday (watever it is, technical stuff or not, or the computer screen on things i don't understand yet forced to understand at times) which i feel makes no value to my life?! can't i just walk out from here..what is stopping me...........

i've almost forgotten about dreams, that we used to work it out together. I stop talking about dreams, i stop doing things that could lead me there, i stop mingling with those people, i don't see the path, it has become dark and vague. i no longer have ppl to keep reminding and encouraging me daily. i'm so scared to think bout the future....i suddenly feel so......for once after so long, i'm lost. i can still be very happy daily, laughters everywhere, but what do i really want to do.......do i just face the reality and follow the flow? or do i choose my life? enlightenment is dreadfully needed.................please...........................
