YES, I Live on Trees! OKAY?

Apparently, if you are born in Sabah, you come from the jungle. That was what Pappy’s friend told us while we had dinner with him today.

And he went on talking about, “I wonder how you all live there.”

Do you walk around with spears and all? BLOODY IDIOT.

Do you have Astro? YES, WE DO.

Do you have Internet? YES, WE DO.

What is the speed like? ALL THAT TMNET HAS GOT TO OFFER.

What languages do you speak? JUST LIKE WHAT YOU SPEAK HERE IN KL.

Do you speak Cantonese like here? YES.

Is your Cantonese one level lower than us? I think our spoken Cantonese is better. I WAS SO PISSED OFF, I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY.

CAN YOU TELL ME WHY….WHY..CITY PEOPLE ALWAYS THINK WE LIVE ON TREES, WE COME FROM THE JUNGLE??

I SUGGEST TO THOSE WHO STILL HAVE THIS STUPID MENTALITY IN THEM TO COME HERE TO SEE FOR THEMSELVES!!

WHY?

BECAUSE YOU ARE STILL SO KAMPUNG!

A Shorter Short Hair

I had a haircut again today. I know it is short and you must be wondering, what else is there to cut since it’s so short. The hair on the right side of my head loves to “fly” and I just had to get help to “de-fly” it. It looks neater now but I’m not sure about the flying part. My hair is unpredictable, suffers from more bad hair days than normal hair days. They are thick, hard and stubborn. I inherited this part of me from my dad.

Had dinner today at Ming Chun Kee Restaurant along Jalan 17/1A. It is situated at the ground floor of one of the PKNS flats, next to a motorcycle shop. Their curry fish head, lala in soup are nice. I would always order lala in soup whenever I’m there, just like today. Pappy ordered assam ma yao fish too. Even though it was dinner for two, I was like the only one eating. The entire plate of lala, I walloped because Pappy only took a few. The fish was a bit spicy so Pappy couldn’t take much so again, I had most of the fish. And now I have a stomach with the size of a drum.

h.e.l.p!

Office Politics

I’ve often heard of how bad some office politics can turn out to be but I just couldn’t picture how terrible it could get. Today is one of the days in which I felt so much injustice. Today it also opened my eyes to another world that I knew existed but could never feel how it tastes like.

People can be so biased that they are blind. And if a person is set to nail a person down, he/she goes all out, in spite of whatever measures just to sabotage the other. It is so scary.

I felt very sad and angry for a colleague of mine who did nothing wrong but was sentenced guilty of committing an offence, which isn’t an offence at all. To me, the whole issue was ridiculous because accusations were simply thrown to the innocent faces.

It has taught me to be careful at work but then again, it doesn’t guarantee that you’ll be safe and protected.

Sometimes I just don’t understand why people love to play all these games at work, it is tiring you know? Just listening and knowing about it is tiring enough, what more being the one involved, being the one plotting the plan and carrying out the dirty tactics.

I sincerely hope that the truth will be revealed one day and that it will open the eyes for those who have been blind. The good ones will seek a better opportunity out there and the bad ones will have trouble sleeping at night.

Yeap, today I felt like strangling someone.

Back to Work

My soul is definitely not back in Kuala Lumpur. It feels like it is still lingering somewhere in Bangkok. It was so hard to make myself work today but I tried to force myself to actually finish off some tasks.

I love travelling and now that I’m back from Bangkok, I am looking forward so much to my trip to Bali next month. I sincerely hope that my plans won’t be ruined. If the boyfriend suddenly tells me that he won’t be able to make it, I just don’t know what unimaginable things I would do.

DEAR GOD, PLEASE MAKE SURE MY BALI TRIP IS GOING TO BE FANTASTICALLY FANTASTIC! THANK YOU!
