Renaye, you look so OLD!!!!
Monday, July 23, 2007
I had an unbelievable weekend by having no internet acces. Banzai, Streamnyx!
Another spice to add to my weekend was receiving a comment or would rather refer it as compliment that I looked OLD for a 21 year old. For a girl, generally, receiving that kind of outrageous statement might just simply put that guy's life in danger. But don't worry, that guy would not get death sentence from that girl, unless she is his wife or girlfriend.
So here, I'm going to add another golden, which is Never Judge a Girl Her Age. Just because she looks "like that", doesn't mean she's old or young. Because it simply doesn't matter. And who are you to judge her by the way? Even God says "Everyone is Beautiful". God didn't say that? Never mind, I'm sure God would be happy to have me as the spokeperson.
It got me thinking when I got that "compliment". It's never the first time or the last to get that and it really amuses me everytime I get that from the complimenter. But this time it really got me thinking. I was just thinking which one is important in life. Life itself or beauty itself, or as a human being, we want both?
Life itself as in being alive and able to experience things to discover the reason of your existence. Or people really just think life itself is very troublesome because his or her life is never on a smooth sail? Or you would rather look on the optimistic side and say "Bring it On" to all your obstacles that will just enrich life and build up your reservoir of knowledge, which in turn mix into wisdom? All of the more important do we as human being think life itself is precious?
Beauty itself as in getting "younger" physically as we are getting older. In other words, being young literally when you know you are getting older but living in a denial illusion that you can retain your youth by seeking treatments. I know, of course, beauty in this context can be more than pumping botox but I seriously ponder whether which one would people really choose especially in this materialistic world. If you are given an opportunity cost, would you choose beauty or wisdom? Would you trade in wisdom for beauty or the other way round? Or would you rather just stay in your room to fix an eyebrow for an hour without even wondering what is Life?
So do I ever get mad when people commented me "I looked so OLD"? Of course not. That's because I take action rather than sulking. I would just swift my priceless plastic knife over the commentator. And then I would preserve the head as a prize in my hallway. No, I was just joking.
I won't be mad because I'm grateful that I'm simply alive.

I actually thought of many things to write on this blog, but I decided to post something to ponder for all of us.
It's simple. No rapport means no sales. Got it? No?
If you are a salesperson and you didn't build any rapport with your prospect, you lose business because you simply cannot identify their needs and wants. It's actually more to that. This doesn't only apply to salesperson but many of us because whatever we do in our daily life, it involves sales and marketing indirectly. Don't you think so? If you have eaten at a great restaurant and you wanted to tell this good news to your friends, you are indirectly selling the idea to your friend to go there to eat. And mum was telling me how this applies to doctors as well. You got no rapport with your patients, you got no sales in the coming month.
Simple as that.
But my brain always like to think of something else. I was just thinking if that was so simple and simply captivating, why isn't so many politicians not doing the same thing? Easy, you listen to the people and cater to their needs and people will love you for good. You do the opposite, we make you go down and be forgotten for good. Easy as ABC but yet indigestible.
Never mind the politicians. What about businesses? H.A.H.A. Same thing and worse. It's the game of the survival of the fittest. You don't listen to feedback and improve, you lose customers forever until you see a yellow tape crossed on your doorstep.
Simple but why isn't some people listening to it?
Know Thy Neighbour
Saturday, July 14, 2007
My mum and I were enjoying our simple dinner meal until we were abrupted by an unexpected call. My mum became fidgeted and ended the call briskly. I guess someone died but not to throw that curt joke in front of my dad, I decided to put on a wild guess: somebody has been robbed. Aiya ... mana tau [without realising], I hit bullseye. And the victim was my mum's friend in my next door apartment.
The victim was not really in a panic form but I could see she was busy making some calls. Mum was asking her for some details while I looked around her neighbours. My heart was caught in the throat without realisation... That's because the sight of her neighbours were pathetic and I felt sad for the victim.
None of the neighbours came to the victim's solace. It was only my mum and I. Her opposite neighbour look disinterested. Never even bothered to join in our conversation. In fact, they closed the door at our face. What a sad sight. Later, they came out of the house without even glancing our direction.
I let out a sad nod and asked the victim if she knows her neighbours. It took her more than 2 minutes to answer my question. Clearly, this shows how our urbanhood has decayed in terms of being a community or simply a society. Do empathy, compassion and unity still exist in the dictionary of urbanites? Or 'individualistic' is the new jargon worshipped by urbans?
I'm thankful that I know my neighbours. It won't take me even a minute to answer who are my neighbours and what are their names. The sight of the victim's situation extremely saddens me to see how selfish humans can be.
I'm sure these people will only learn their lesson the hard way by being a victim without receiving any assistance or comfort from the people in their closest environment.
Doctor ah Doctor ...
Sunday, July 8, 2007
I went to see a doctor, correction a doctor not a shrink, today because i was sick for a week: flu and dry throat and higher body temperature last week and my right head is stuff with mucus.
The doctor is killing me. I explained what is wrong with me ... and he kept on asking me what IS wrong with me...
Me: I can't open my mouth because I got muscle spasm in my jaw...
Dr. Please open your mouth bigger ... [he puts in an ice cream stick into my mouth]
Me: My temperature went a little higher last Thursday or Friday ...
Dr: Do you have any fever?
Me: My head is stuff with mucus for the whole morning ...
Dr. You have any flu?
Geez... Correction: I need to see a shrink.
Spider spins a dream for ...
Friday, July 6, 2007
My workmate asked me to interpret her dream in Chinese terms... I mean like if you see a black cat jumping on a coffin it means the dead will be risen something like that.
She said her hand was bitten off by a spider and her hand regenerated. She didn't feel pain but was horrified. After telling me this, she asked if I know any significance of these signs. You know what I told her?
Well you know the Chinese always like buying those 4 digits at those shoddy shops after spotting car number plates that are involved in some accidents ... Well who knows if she was meant to buy 4 D and she could strike but she won't because she's a Malay. I told her she could always count on me to buy. XD.
I was of course just joking.
I even told her that she should think of lengchai [handsome guy] kissing her instead thinking of bugs ...
Well I have dreamed of a shark biting me, as if bugs would hurt me.

Yesterday was Heroes Finale in Malaysia. Yea the long awaited finale ...
Guess what? The future caused by Peter exploding has been changed to Nathan taking Peter to explode in outer space. It was sad. Claire was about to shoot Peter but Nathan came in the nick of time and stopped Claire.
Nathan: The future can be changed ... I Love You, Peter
Peter: I Love You too ...
And off they flew. Err ... the I Love U really sound gayish in these 2 guys conversation ...
But I would love to know who is scarier than Sylar. Molly Walker, Linderman's tracker, said there is only one person she cannot track because he doesn't want to be seen. In fact, Molly is afraid of him when she said "He can see me".
Woah .. that blew me off. Imagine someone looking at your direction when you are trying to peep on that person. Oh reminded me of Johan from Monster anime.
Sylar was really stabbed by Hiro just like that: Hiro running into him with a katana and tada he was stabbed and lying on the floor. Huh? But poor Hiro. He got himself travelled to Kensei era??
In short ... When is the second season goin to air in Malaysia???
Oh, I have a few book reviews in my writings section. Haven't really sought it out but feel free to browse.
