Xmas is over!
Sunday, December 27, 2009
Christmas is gone in a blink of an eye!! Have you all had a good Christmas celebration?? Received lots of presents? Eat lots of turkeys?? I hope you all had a good Christmas celebration.
But speaking of Christmas, I had a quiet celebration with watching anime on laptop. Astro sucks: they played old and repetitive movies on Christmas. Not forgivable. I had ... fried rice at a nearby restaurant because need to go home early for the Chinese drama! Haha.
But speaking of Christmas, I'm astounded to the amount of money spent by the Aussies on Christmas presents. Read this article: Aussie say 'no thanks' to 20 million Xmas gifts. It's just crazy to see how much people would spend on Xmas presents. With this amount of money, poor people can live for another few more days. The worse thing is people have been buying useless and not practical gifts for the receivers. According to the article, people bought turkey for vegetarians, dog bowls for not-dog-owner and others. Seems to me that these people are just buying for the sake of buying or because the things were on sale. Where is the spirit of Christmas??
I agree that it is not easy to buy gifts for someone but it doesn't mean getting not practical gifts could get you away from 'hey I have given you a gift, period.' What is the point of giving a gift knowing that gift is not useful to the person? Because at the end, the person will just discard the gift in the dustbin and then ... because of you, there is an increase of junk in the dumping land... and there is a possibility the item you throw away is not biodegradable or recyclable. If this 10 million worth of presents are not biodegradable, what do you think they will become? Good answer if you say these things can be donated! But do you know that charity bodies throw away unpractical things donated to them? They even recycle books. So do you think you can pass on your unusable items to your next door?
My point is what a waste of time, energy and money to spend on these Christmas presents. Please think carefully of the items you are about to buy for yourself and other people. Please don't buy something because you NEED to. Another way to reduce waste is to ask the person what he or she wants.
Please remember your action has effects on other living things.

I have heard of animal parents eating their offspring, but not the other way round. Next month, Astro is going to show a program on this. I'm not too sure if I'm keen on watching it. I think it is disgusting to watch mother and child eating each other. I love violence but not up to that level.
I'm not too sure if I will ever eat another human in order to survive when there is nothing else to consume. Moral and ethical values restrain me now.... let's see when there is really no more food in this world.
Carrot and the Stick
Sunday, December 20, 2009
A friend of mine recently shared with me that if I want to do my own business, I could try getting a grant. I have ideas but I have no team. This friend is offering to buy my ideas but I'm not willing to sell unless I have a share in it. It's a tug and war game. I have think hard about translating the idea into action. It is hard and lots of maintenance. Alternatively I could manage everything but it is hard since I need storage. And the other idea sounds cool but it is not feasible yet in Malaysia.
What a dilemma. I just don't know how to reach the carrot ... my stick is too short.
La wor liao ... WHACK!!!!!!!!

La, wor, liao, etc are part of Malaysian way of talking in daily conversations, but there should be a limit imposed on its usage. I recently found the usage has been abused and it became too obnoxious to my liking. If it's in a conversation, it is not objectable by me because I used that heavily in my conversations and online chatting. But recently I found myself cringing or having 'asthma' whenever I read threads in fora. The replies were horrible. I feel the more I read those replies with extremely poor English would further deteriorate my command of English.
Man .. I need to 'wash' my eyes....
Emerges the Meow
Thursday, December 3, 2009
I had an awesome week at the youth camp despite discovering a dead cockroach on my pillow in the hostel. It was gross. It made me fled to my friend's room for the night. But I had so much fun and I'm happy that I'm still high from it.
I seriously think I have grown up. Usually, I feel sad whenever I know I'm leaving the camp and returning to my reality life. That is why I hate holidays. If only holidays were able to retain your memories and happiness of that moment... then I don't mind taking holiday and return to reality. But in reality, all memories have short time span in term of pictorial. As time passes, you only remember the feeling but not the graphics anymore... But I know all good things must come to an end ... so that was why I was able to leave the camp with a smile because I know ... I came back to reality with more same minded friends. I came back with friendships... which I know I will cherish though our paths may not cross again. But we were destined to meet at that point...
Speaking of maturity, I am glad I now more matured. Usually I get saddened pretty easily when a friend didn't invite me to tea with other friends who came back from overseas. Recently, I was not called to be my friend's bridesmaid though all ex-college mates were, and finding that out only at the wedding dinner hurt like hell. And recently, a friend came back from abroad and I found out all ex-college mates went out for lunch with this friend. Inconveniently I found out on Facebook album photos. I used to rant about not including me. But somehow, I don't feel like I used to.
No matter how much I cherish my college life and friends, I realised I cherish everything I experienced during my college life. Though my friends and I are ex-college mates... life is not the same for us anymore; our friendship pattern has changed. But we have to get on with life ...
P.S = Laptop is in hospital.
