I know it's a weird title in conjunction with Chinese New Year, but I would like to share with you a joke you don't often hear. Actually, joke is not the right word. It's superstitious depending who is the listener.
My sis, mum and mum's sister visited the tailor last week to collect their new year clothes. And during the interaction, the tailor, who is a family friend for over 20 years was telling my sister of a way to get a husband. My sister was not paying attention, but my aunt was. The tailor is smart. She used my sister 'to cross' the information to my unmarried aunt who is dying to get married. My mum didn't understand why the tailor was telling my sis about this when she knows very well my sister and I are not keen on relationship.
A few days later ... my aunt called up my mum and asked for vase. My mum went gag when she heard her sister has bought some cherry blossoms from the supermarket.
So what did the tailor say?
If you put a vase of cherry blossoms in your home, a husband will come to your doorstep.
Does it work?
Apparently the tailor and her sister got a husband using this method.
Will I try?
Hell no. What if a guy really appears and he is not what I want? Yea, I'm referring the guy as a product. Mind my language. Thank you.
Is my auntie trying?
Is it going to work for my aunt?
HAHA. Let's cross fingers.
Happy Chinese New Year and I will update you on this.

I HATE this nightmare.
I was in front of a mirror looking at my hair ... because I had bald patches!!!!!
And I was desperate to cover those patches!!!
And luckily I woke up from that beauty nightmare.

Joke from the grave
Thursday, January 13, 2011
I shared with my colleagues that I can see spirits. And I have seen some spirits shadows in the office. And they all got terrified. HAHAHAHA.
My Muslim colleagues told me to tell them horror stories on Fridays because it's the day where the spirits visit their family members and the survivors will say a prayer for the deceased specifically on these days.
And I went "Wow. Your deceased members come and visit you guys every Friday, which is much better than the Chinese when they are only allowed to visit once a year."
The Muslim colleagues laughed like hyenas.

I know I'm very vocal, but I also hope that I won't scare people away with my outspoken character. But I think I speak my mind at the right time and the right place. Hopefully. *cross fingers*
Early this morning, a primary friend asked me to meet up with him next week since he will be in the city for some business appointments. I didn't accept or decline. I replied instead "How can you guarantee you will show up this time?" Well, I think I don't have to explain much what happened the last time we set up an appointment.
Then his reply was "Oh, I will show up this time." It was not convincing at all. So I repeated that he didn't show up at our appointment at 7 pm. His reply was the dumbest: "Oh, you look mad. I will make up to you."
I didn't think twice before blowing up in his face via Facebook chat. I told him that I cannot trust his words because he didn't show up for our appointment. For the first appointment, I waited at his hotel lobby for one hour, and he didn't show up. The funny thing was he told me he was staying at that hotel, but when I checked with the receptionist I was told there was no such guest on that day or even before that. Strange, but I kept on waiting, and kept calling his mobile phone every 5 minutes. I was pretty mad by the half hour of waiting, but I can't blame him because I decided to meet up at a restaurant that is surrounded by jam in the evening. (HAHA, but it's just next to the hotel he 'was' staying). Until the end of my stoic waiting of one hour, I finally able to get him, and he told me his car broke down somewhere at his relatives house (and waiting for the mechanic), and his phone battery died. Hearing his predicament, I didn't blame him and canceled the appointment. But I thought he could have inform me somehow...
What made me distrust him is because of our second appointment. I remembered very clearly that I reminded him in the morning of our appointment. He said he remembered and was looking forward to our appointment. And so I was at our appointment venue, which was downtown city at 7 pm. 30 minutes before 7, I called his mobile phone repeatedly, but he didn't answer. Then I recalled he will be meeting some supplier before meeting me, so I stopped calling, but I text-ed him. And received no reply. I prayed that this time he will show up earlier. I kept calling him but he didn't answer though there was a dial tone. Of course, his-not-showing-up-in-previous-appointment kept flashing in my brain, but I kept it down by consoling myself that I trust him. I sensed something amiss after waiting until 7.30 pm. I called up his hotel and asked for his name. The receptionist told me he has checked out. My eyes bulged. And I kept telling myself that he may be coming over from his relative house somewhere in KL. And so I kept telling myself that he is on the way... I think I called up the hotel again, and I don't remember what I asked the hotel staff, but all I knew was he has returned to Penang. Or maybe my intuition told me that. But fuzzily, I remembered making a few calls to the hotel and asking questions about the guest.
YEA, he made an appointment with me on the day he returned to his house in Penang. Not after our appointment, but BEFORE. Knowing this, I was so livid that I could just swallow people around me.
Never mind that. He didn't even bother to explain about his disappearance when he was online on Facebook. He didn't even reply messages about that appointment, as though it never happened.
And he now wants to make another appointment with me? Is he kidding me? I have thought of making it and not showing up. I actually joked with another friend that he changed his mind meeting up with me because I was not pretty enough, because the last time I saw him was in a major shopping mall with a beautiful girl with makeup. And I weren't. But seriously, this is not related at all.
I told him about the whole event of our second appointment from how I found out he has checked out from the hotel to how he never explained why he never showed up for the second appointment.
I told him straight into the face that as a businessman it would be very easy to understand that time = money. By not showing up, he wasted my time and money. I added if he thinks his time is precious, my time is as precious as his. And it's useless to make up to me, because I want result. (Of course, I won't see the result since I decided not to meet up)
To close my speech, I asked "So tell me how can you guarantee you will show up this time?"
He went offline. HA!
To be frank, I don't even want to meet up with this kind of people. I may sound cruel or not giving chance or even not understanding, but there's a technology called mobile phone, which enables us to contact other people not to keep in the museum or as an expired Christmas present for a grandchild. It's just so rude not to inform whether you can attend the appointment or not.
I dislike irresponsible people. Is it so hard to explain why you can't come? If you got no handphone, can use email right? Or snail mail right? Or leave a message on facebook. Is that so hard? Well, if you got none of the following, then please learn telepathy.
