I must say I had an eerie morning. I started off my day eerily. How unfortunate.
The nights have been extremely hot recently, and yet I still cover myself with the blanket for I dislike the fan's wind blowing my hands. This morning is no different. But something was wrong, I felt, or thought to myself that I could not go back to sleep because I had overworked my brain on some business plans and some volunteer work I recently committed myself. But was that the real reason for my heart to race in the hot night at 4-ish am? I knew my sis woke up at 4.50 and was doing her prayers by 5 am. I curled myself to sleep for I know I have 20 more minutes of beauty sleep before my latest craze of music, Kiss Kiss Kiss by Beni Arashi, rings.
I switched it off at the 5th second and went back to sleep and that was when it happened. I went back to sleep, hoping for another 30 minutes before waking up my mother. I curled myself on the right and then tossed around before I decided to cover up myself with the blanket and sleep on my back. I tossed my head to the left and was ready to fall into a slumber. I did fell asleep, but it was a sleep paralysis mode, and I wanted to get out of that mode, because that mode would make me sleep for a further 2 hours. So I wanted to shake myself out of it... but the moment I wanted to do so, there were... fingers crawling under my blanket reaching for my neck. And I can't say anything!
Something WAS very wrong!! I need to get out!! FAST!! Not being able to say anything, I just shook my head and just tell myself "GET LOST" and I don't know why I said "PLEASE OPEN THE DOOR." After saying that, I got freed and kicked the blanket away and immediately opened my room door. For once, I was grateful that my sister has woken up and what's more she was doing her prayers. My room was immediately filled with the soothing prayers and mantra and I could feel whatever was in my room was dissipating. I didn't go back to sleep but was traumatised.
A similar event happened 15 years ago. I was truly traumatised by now. And now I realised whatever was making my heart race was not about the workload but the unseen presence. Sometimes, I got the image of something hanging at the corner of my room.
Whatever it is. I hope it doesn't return tonight.
Everyone, shut up.

Try deciphering the title.
Anyways, just want to share that there are three ways to grow rich. There are via
Simple isn't it? But I don't know why many people are not into one of those categories at all.
It reminded me of my former client asking me this question: Why the investment banks like your unit trust only gives me 10% returns? Where the hell did the 90% went?
Another shocking reply from my friend was: I want to grow rich slowly. So I'm happy with the bank's fixed deposit at 3% (which is now below 3). My reply was where are you going to get the other 4% to have money on par with inflation rate? I'm not talking about luxuries, I'm just talking about having enough money to eat in near future. If you were to have 2 kids, would 3% sufficient to cover your retirement savings, education fees, medical bills, and your hobbies? Possible and feasible. The annual income of husband and wife has to be RM100 000 and above per person. And please don't tell me retirement is all about waiting to die. I know some people are. Trust me 'coz someone close to me fits my description.
I was talking to some friends about investment and they were telling me that they would like to do business too. Good! Coz business is one of the ways to become rich. So I asked them if they go into shares and they said no. Ok. Next is what about unit trust? And they said no. So where do you invest to get more returns? Gold? No. It's in savings accounts. Why not any investment? The replied was I am not a risk taker. But business is about risk, isn't it?
I just want to get this off my chest. I have so many more things to share which some I can't even share on the blog.
Come to Me.

Come to me ... come to me.... *RAN*. This was what happened when I was in Cazzy's apartment hoping one of her 6 cats would come to me and play. But they seemed to prefer to entertain themselves than entertaining their guest! HAHA. Anyway, she has one of the biggest cats I have ever seen! It weighs 9 kg. Phew... I can't carry it because it's heavy! So I only managed to carry the smaller ones and they are so cute. Cats are sooo cute. I hope I would be financially sound to be able to support my dependents, myself and a cat.
I took some 3 pictures of me and the cat but I don't know why my handphone can't be detected by laptop. *Cry*. And ... I forgot to take a photo of me and Cazzy together!

The long awaited apparel...
This is my first designed top. Basically I mean design as in telling the tailor what I want. I got this fabric at a discounted price and I'm happy I got this fabric!
This is the jacket I was referring to in my previous post where my friend called it 'very auntie looking." The jacket from the picture may look awful because it seems my camera doesn't seem to be able to capture the right colour texture at times. And also my room has very bad lighting for photo taking. The print might be a little too dark but it's actually a mixture of gold and brown. I waited for months for a discounted price on this fabric. I think I waited 6 months. My auntie and mum also bought the same fabric as me. I'm not sure what are they going o do with it.
I had a hard time to find the buttons because gold buttons are in extinction. It was abundance 10 years ago but many people nowadays prefer to buy than to tailor-make their clothes, that's why.
This jacket is pretty smart with black pants. And I thought a Thomas Sabo necklace to accompany this jacket would be perfect ....

Who would have thought this blogger would be able to sit on the same table for a meeting with a bigshot this morning and will be for the next few months until the end of 2009?
