I’ve been very busy, driving around, transporting the whole family to get things done. I took UNPAID leave yesterday to spend more time with Iris who just flew back to UK this afternoon. I also took half day today to send her to the airport, together with Mummy and Pappy.
Surprisingly, I didn’t cry. I think she’s going do just fine and I know she’s in good hands…so I’m not too worried about that. My little sister is all grown up. Thanks to the exposure she gets while she’s studying overseas, I think she will slowly morph into one fine lady. Of course, the comparison did set in, when I look at myself and I look at her. I don’t know how to put it into words but it’s a feeling like your little sister has grown up but you are still the same.
Went to watch Malaysia International Fireworks Competition 2007 in Putrajaya last Saturday. It wasn’t a very good choice to be driving to Putrajaya to watch the fireworks because there is just way too many cars. Going was still fine. It was the leaving Putrajaya part which is torturing. It actually took me 3 hours to get home from Putrajaya, which normally only take an hour.
Can you imagine watching the fireworks which ended at 10:20pm and you leave immediately after that (I wasn’t even close to Putrajaya International Convention Centre – PICC – they blocked the road, which they re-opened after that, but I couldn’t get in already because I parked somewhere else (I don’t know where it is also)) . And yet, at 12 midnight, you are still stuck in Putrajaya because the traffic came to a complete STANDSTILL.
I would suggest to park somewhere other than Putrajaya. Cyberjaya would be a better option. And you somehow need to know which are the good spots so that you can see fireworks coming out from two firing zones. I only got to see the left hand side one and only the high ones. The low firing fireworks (I’m not sure if I got that grammatically correct but I cannot think now because I’m too tired) weren’t really visible.
My Internet died again last night due to my itchy hands. Iris bought a new laptop and wanted to connect to the wireless network I have at home. The thing is I don’t remember the password to this wireless network of mine….so I cleverly reset the Wireless Broadband Router, even knowing that I don’t know how to set it back again. Sometimes, you just happen to do things you know you shouldn’t do. Happens, no?
Called a friend just now which helped me to reset everything but without the wireless broadband router. I don’t really need it now since I’m the only one using the Internet. Thank you Nathan. You’re a genius and I’m going to spend you lunch.
It’s time for bed. I hope I get to blog again tomorrow, if time permits.
P/S: If you have a mini Malaysian flag glued on your car and if you drive about 120 kph to KLIA, the flag will come off, which happened to mine. I’m now flagless. *sigh*
