Thursday 22nd May
Meh nothing much happened today.
Was audited in the morning which I think I scored pretty decently.
And watched Xmen with my colleagues after work (I loved it)
Wtv it is, tomorrow is payday, biotch!
It's 1:06am Thurs 22nd May 2014, and I'm typing this (or rather blogging this) using my iPad. Gone were the days of me sitting in front of my laptop, thinking of what beautiful words to be uttered, how to personalize it a little bit more, to add pictures and all. Meh, those were the days.
I saw the last post of mine, dated way back in 2012. That was before Twitter came into the picture and killed (maybe paralyzed a bit) the blogging scene everywhere. Except for those gossips and politics blogs I'd reckon.
Whatever it is, here I am, trying to write again. But this time around, it won't shout "hey-please-read-my-posts-and-increase-my-page-hits" anymore. I think I'm going to make it a little bit more personal. Like a diary. Since I know the only person who's going to read this again in the future is, yup, me.
Alright where do I start.
Woke up a tad early today, just because we were having breakfast with our SGM, GM and their entourage this morning before they proceeded with their visits. Got back to the office and sorted out some documentations and filings for tomorrow's audit (gulp). The day went kinda slow and dull. Gotta blame the gloomy weather of late. Went back home after working hours and had my nap,
Got out of the bed (finally, and it was only because I was hungry) and headed to City Square with a to-buy-list mentally embedded in my brain. Managed to get my Superdry watch fixed, bought an SD card for my Note 3 (the storage problem was kinda annoying, plus I'm too lazy to get all my pics transferred to my laptop on a weekly basis), had Kenny Rogers for dinner (instead of Subway which what I had in mind prior to that - so much of eating healthy, Faliq -_-) went to Crossover and bought two tees (HUF and Rockwell - first time coming across that brand) and went up to the cinema to catch the 11pm Bad Neighbours show, only to find the last show was at 9pm. Damn you Cinemapps.
So I had to change my plan and reluctantly watched Godzilla (3D) instead. To my surprise, I had fun watching it and it wasn't as boring as some people claimed it to be. Perhaps my simple mind liked it and the sadist side of me loved the mass-casualties-and-cities-destruction scenes.
And that was before I spent half an hour trying to figure out how to pay for my parking ticket as I only has RM1 note and two fiddy dollar bills, when the amount that I had to pay was RM3. Stupid machine didn't accept RM50 nor coins. And it was 12:30 ish and no one was around. Until I came across a dude who was willing to exchange my coins with another two RM1 bills. God bless you random citizen.
I guess that's about it. P/s: I'm still hating myself for not being able to muster any strength and motivation to hit the gym. And on another note, I finally passed 7300 followers on Instagram. Wee huu (slow clap)
Night world. Let's see how discipline I can be in ensuring this "diary" is updated on a daily basis. Ha!
So December is entering it's second week. I hope it's not too late to welcome December. It's a month of a lot of things.
A month of holidays. A month of celebration. A month of get-together.
A month of wedding invitations. A month of spending your money at the shopping malls for the things you will regret buying later.
A month of forgetting your homework. A month of waiting for your exam results.
A month of getting that driving license. A month of part-time job.
A month of thinking back about your 2012 new year's resolution.
A month of company's accounts closing.
A month of buying, wrapping, giving and receiving Christmas gifts. A month of snow.
A month of beach vacation. A month of proms. A month of bersunat.
A month of FHM's top 100 hottest women. A month of giving away 2013 calendars and diaries.
A month of farewells and retirement. A month of saying goodbye to school of you're taking SPM this year.
And for the less optimistic people, it's also the month of apocalypse, the end of the world.
Whatever December means to you, I just hope you have a good one and may all your resolutions come true before the clock ticks 12am on the 1st January 2013 :)
Ramadhan tiba lagi. Alhamdulillah, kita berkesempatan untuk menjalani bulan yang memang ditunggu-tunggu oleh semua umat Islam.
Aku konfirm, Ramadhan yang lepas-lepas ada memberi sejuta satu kenangan dekat korang. Bulan yang mencabar, bulan orang buat duit, bulan orang pakai duit, bulan reunion, bulan orang nak belajar berhenti merokok, bulan orang nak cuba kuruskan badan, bulan orang putus jari main mercun. Macam-macam definisi ada.
Ramadhan kali ini adalah Ramadhan yang kedua aku sambut di Johor Bahru. Walaupun secara teknikalnya sekarang aku dekat Keramat kerana memang dah jadi tradisi keluarga utk bersahur, berpuasa dan buka puasa (aku masih ralat nak guna perkataan iftar) pada hari pertama dengan family.
Kenangan aku pada Ramadhan-Ramadhan lepas tak banyak beza dengan korang, aku rasa. Kalau masa kecik, dijanjikan seringgit satu hari puasa penuh oleh parents aku. Kalau masuk zaman sekolah rendah, zaman selalu ke tandas basuh muka dan berkumur (ada la setitik dua air kumuran tu yang mencecah tekak). Masuk zaman sekolah menengah pulak since aku sekolah asrama, bersahur dan berbuka puasa ramai-ramai di dining hall tu perkara wajib.
Sehinggalah ke zaman uni, kalau masa sengkek tu, pergi bazaar je beli satu jenis juadah main course, berselang selikan dessert yang berupa kuih muih tempatan. Dan paling aku ingat masa aku berpuasa di Sibu Sarawak utk 2 tahun sebab aku posting kat sana. Pukul 6.45pm dah masuk waktu. Memang syok tapi hari-hari buka sorang sbb kat sana colleague pun takde sangat.
And for sure, antara benda yang paling famous di bulan Ramadhan ni ialah Bazaar Ramadhan (aku masih belum ready nak pakai term PARAM) dia dan segala kuih muih, lauk pauk yang ada. Murtabak, air katira, ayam percik, even kurma pakcik Yusof Taiyob pun akan kembali femes bila bulan puasa.
Dan of course, bulan ni la bulan kita beramal. Bukan nak jadi poyo tapi kalau sebulan ni pun korang takleh nak beramal lebih sikit dari 11 bulan yang lain, susah lah aku nak cakap. Zaman kekecik dulu pergi terawih sebab nak usha awek. Sekarang pun ada lagi sentimen tu tapi dah berkurang sebab awek-awek baya aku yang datang pun mesti dah kahwin ha ha.
Apapun, jadikanla Ramadhan kali ini Ramadhan yang bererti. Kalau nak beli juadah, beringatlah, jangan sampai membazir. Kalau nak main mercun, berwaspadalah jangan sampai terbakar rumah. Ambik kesempatan ni utk banyakkan amalan. Masa ni jugak utk kita buat reunion ke, mini reunion ke dengan member2 lama. Makin tua korang, makin susah nak jumpa kawan-kawan lama duduk setable borak-borak. And kepada yang berpuasa di perantauan tu, aku respek korang. Bukan senang nak adapt esp kalau first time.
So, selamat berpuasa lah ye. Semoga amalan kita semua diberkati :)
So as I was busy planning and sorting things out for my upcoming birthday dinner this Saturday, a thought struck me, "Last year at this time, was I this busy or things were already in place for my birthday dinner party?"
So I have. Watched The Vow.
Quite frankly, I wasn't aware about the existence of the movie prior to watching it. Neither have I watched the trailer nor seen the poster anywhere. Perhaps they were there, but I just happened to miss them. So I didn't know what to expect out of this movie, initially I thought.
Anyway, no, this is not a movie review, professionally. I'm a no movie critic. I'm just a normal guy who enjoys watching movies, and tonight I feel like sharing it. And yes, spoiler alert.
I stumbled across these youtube videos of people recording strange sounds they heard recently. Some of them were from 2011 but most of them were during the first weeks of 2012. These strange trumpet-like sounds have been recorded all over the world, from Canada, Uzbekistan, USA, Costa Rica, Ireland and even Kota Samarahan, Sarawak. Call me gullible but these sounds are freaking scary, man.
This is from Ireland:-
And this is from Sarawak:
So did you know that last Thursday was the World Heart Day? I know this entry is 2 days late but I'd love to share the message here anyway because this topic is very close to my, yep, heart.
It's time to do the right thing. I know I haven't been eating right. I haven't been exercising right. But at least I can say proudly that I'm not a smoker. And those who are close to me would know why.
Because my father passed away when I was 7 due to heart failure. And why? Because he was a heavy smoker.
So I'm not gonna risk my life, the people around me, and maybe my future generation. I'm going to love my heart and I recommend you guys to do the same. :) Love your
I hope this entry explains everything that you need to know about who am I and why am I trending in Malaysia for the past 3 days.
