New Year Celebration
Wednesday, January 2, 2008
I'm not too sure if something is bugging my inner self but I have been thinking things for some hours already. I find them very disturbing which I don't know how to put into words. Oh well I'm always having difficulties in explaining my thoughts into words...

One of the things I have been thinking is more of a reflection of yesterday actions. A friend of mine was supposed to have lunch with me yesterday but somehow he totally 'forgot' about it and only 'remembered' me when he was in a state of penniless. He asked me to lend him money because he overspent 23k in a night. I'm not too sure of the details of his shopping spree but all I know is 23k a night? Isn't that too much? Well I did lend him some money knowing that it was an extreme investment where I won't even get back my raw capital. My mum was furious with his attitudes for exploiting me since he knew so many Tom Dick and Harry but why me to his rescue. I decided to lend him on the basis that I have experienced a similar situation before - I know the state of helplessness. But if he's not returning my money, I would surely haunt him and I think I still remember his house location... Damn ... I don't know his office number. Jolenesiah, should we try to practise our spying skills again? I seriously don't like to be taken advantage of. Who likes by the way? Another business idea to think of - AH LONG ENTERPRISE (Ah Long is a term used in Malaysia to refer to money lender).

The guy I lent money to seriously has financial problems. Surely it's none of my business but I never understood what is there to buy. A friend of mine asked me "How can you resist of not buying those so CUTE things" and some money spending related qs. I seriously don't indulge in buying cute things other than hunting for gifts/ presents. I never pampered myself buying cute things but only food like lunch/dinner at Chillies, coffee from Sans Francisco or an expensive cake. Clothes, bags, accessories are rare on my buying list, But recently I bought a few t-shirts for 50% off their original prices and a pair of jeans. Accessories? I have not been getting earrings lately simply because the designs nowadays are too unpleasant for my collection. Bags? Why buy bags if my mum could redeem from her credit card centre and Bonus Link? And who cares if the bags are not branded? As long they are usable and they look like "branded" you don't owe any explanation to anyone except your bank account.

I have only one credit card and its limit is RM 4k. But I have set my own limit on its usage to below RM 300 max. Why want to waste tomorrow's spending for today's excessive pleasure? Fashion trends, eletronical trends and whatever trends are not going to be always updated so why in the hurry to buy as though they are like chipsmore "now you see now you don't". So why don't do research before buying impulsively? If you really have this overpowering urge to buy the item ... just try walking one round of the shopping complex to distract yourself and then sit on the bench and ask yourself whether you need that item or not. If you know you can survive without that item just tell yourself "I will buy it tomorrow" and tomorrow never dies... Then you will forget about your craving.

I have a friend who told me she must have a lot of cash in her wallet. I went gag because I only have RM 50 the most in my wallet and that would last me at least a week if I brought my own lunch everyday. Even then sometimes my lunch would only cost me RM 2.50 - just friend noodle from some makcik on the roadside. And that's included my afternoon snack. I think my senior would only have RM 5 in her purse but I think that's too extreme.

My wallet has so little money? Yea I usually remove a large sum of money from my main account to another account. So the main account would only have the amount I needed to survive for the whole month. And the rest I will lock up in fixed deposit because I know my bad habit of using extra cash when it is accessible. But I'm planning to lock the money in money market then I can earn interest everyday ... hahaha.. I think so...

I sounded very easily but it is extraordinarily to execute. Necessity things have been going up and up but our purchasing power is stagnant for most of us. Don't you think so?

This article is pretty good: Where's My Money Gone?

My new year resolution is to not write blog entries that sounded like I'm committing suicide.

New Year
Monday, December 31, 2007
It's the last day of 2007. I don't know what to write to wrap up 2007 because I wish today is not the last day.

I have learnt a lot of things in year 2007 from work to personal life. A lot of things running in my mind but I'm not going to highlight many things. I want to keep some of them personal.

I think I should have done more things in year 2007. I remembered telling myself the things I wanted to achieve in 2007 on the last day of 2006. And I can tell myself today that I haven't even achieved a single one. I kinda feel regret and I know I have told myself I don't want to live a regretful live. And today I'm going to tell myself again I want to maximise my life. I want to achieve at least one thing on my list.

I have added a new resolution for 2008 that is to have more fun with life and something else.

Happy New Year to all of you. All the best to myself and to you.

It's funny that my previous blog about Boxing Day received a lot of comments. I was actually pretty surprised because many readers thought it is boxing as in punching people and day as in a day to celebrate it. Holycow. What have I done?! I thought that term is quite common for people to open presents the day after christmas. Haha...

I really had a good laugh. I'm sure all readers too!

Happy New Year and all the best for 2008!

Eggs and Baskets
Saturday, December 1, 2007
I think I'm recently very stress. Not the typical stress like from work or pressure. But simply from interactions. I'm sick of interacting with stalkers. I always need to tell them repeatedly to shake their shadows off me. And them replying me "it was an excruciating pain of hearing that." Then what about my pain of suffering being hounded? Sometimes I don't know if the stalkers realise the pain of being rejected is also a deep cut to the rejectors like me because I'm seriously fed up of telling guys to give up on me repeatedly. They don't leave you after you tell them once. They come again and again. They just love torturing you. And then when you finally blow up in a polite way. They tell you "don't be mad because you are not cute in that form." I'm simply wordless.

Why am I so mad? And why is my entry always about stalkers? Nothing else to talk about? Actually I have a wonderful day today until I got into a fight with my sister. I went shopping for punjabi suit at Masjid India today. Holycow the most colourful market I have ever seen! But back to my question. I'm mad because I was in a hurry to buy a punjabi suit just because I want to avoid 'collateral damage' in any form and way. The objective of getting that is to wear to a friend's wedding next week. I wanted to wear baju kurung but thinking of the effect... I cringed and I want to cry but no tears. You imagine you can't wear that because a stalker likes to see you in that costume... And what does a stalker do? Their eyes never left you. I don't want to be spied. And worse still I don't want my costume to excite him. Imagine I have to take all precautions and asking my friends to sit beside me at all times. My friend even offered me to sit beside her husband. How sweet. But of course I said I will sit beside her. My current question is why the hell am I suffering?

Can you imagine this suffering is just cause by one guy? And I'm tired of people of not understand other people's feelings and respecting people's decision. Yes I know I sometimes brush people's feelings and sometimes aggresively sideline their decision but that's a different story. (Yes I know some of the readers are groaning about it). What I want to say in this context is similar to this scenario: You don't like vegetable and I know you don't. So when I see you not eating, I don't force you. Is that fair? The same concept. That was what got me into a fight with my sister. The same thing to guys who don't get off my tails.

Maybe that explains a lot why I want solitude. The lesson you can learn from this entry is if you like someone and want to be his/her partner, please don't make yourself irritating and annoying. Try doing it 'professionally' which means don't be pushy and please choose your words properly when talking. If the potental partner keeps declining stop pouring words like "you don't need to work so hard if you have a boyfriend" or "you will have someone to take care of you". If you just did even you say it casually you, you have just irritated the person. Congratulations. And please remember that since you want to give a good impression on people. You want a good name.

One more thing is to someone named C.C.Ho. Thank you for reading my blog but I have been freaking out since you told me you are reading my blog "very closely" last night. Nothing wrong with it but I just don't know why the way you said it really made me insecure like I have been a prime target.... I'm sorry to have to pass the message like this. I'm not a coward and I will tell you that again when we chat. So the song "Don't go breaking my heart" sang by Elton John and Olivia Newton John is highly dedicated to you.

Oh well thank you for supporting my blog. The website (http://books2sell.nutang.com) to sell books is already up some time ago and it will be always be updated.

Happy ranting about my useless entry.
