Speak to My Finger
Books I have completed reading since January 2021:

1. The Enchanted - Rene Denfield
I heard that
Wednesday, February 15, 2012
I was in my colleague's office today to discuss about some ungodly changes to a schedule.

She was on the phone in the midst of our conversation. I picked up that she was talking about the Malaysian retirement fund, and then in a frustrating tone she complained that whoever was handling the case is INEFFICIENT. She noticed my expression and she immediately switched to Tamil.

I wasn't offended whatsoever. I was just laughing silently. Who the heck is she to call other people inefficient when she belongs to that group too? I guess she terms herself as somewhat inefficient, and that is of course a hierarchy higher than inefficient.

Where do I lie? No idea. I used to be very efficient until the arrival of FB and youtube in my life. HA.

Boss, I'm innocent. Blame it on FB and Youtube.

Kamichama Karin
Sunday, February 12, 2012
I finally finished watching Kamichama Karin after a hiatus of 3 years?

I found out this anime from reading its manga. I even thought of purchasing it, but luckily I didn't because the anime turns out to be pretty stupid. Or maybe the anime didn't do a great job in translating the manga.

I become interested in watching the anime, because the manga is hilarious. I could not stop laughing reading volume 1 and 2.

Let just say the anime was quite a disappointment. I now wonder who/what/which is more stupid: The anime or the viewer.

me ain't pet!
Friday, February 10, 2012
On 19 November 2011...

This is also my last day in Brunei Darussalam.

My host mum knew I didn't get to eat amboyat (sago starch) during the open house on 17 November. So she made it just for me. It was pure white starch. I wad clueless when she gave me a bamboo fork for I have never seen such food! Host dad demonstrated to me and buddy. He dipped the fork into the starch and twist (like candy floss on a stick). I did the same thing and popped into my mouth.

I chewed. The sensation was new to me. As I was trying to figure out its texture, dad was already scolding me "OI! You don't chew, you swallow!". Yikes? I swallowed the next ball of starch onwards. It slid my throat smoothly. Brrrr...

Ahh.... It was an interesting experience. And I was told to finish the big bowl of starch. HAHAHA. And I did with some chili squid dish.

After finishing the ambuyat, my host parents drove us to the port. During the journey, my host parents kept on saying they do not wish us to return to the ship, and how they will keep us in Brunei. My buddy and I just looked into each other eyes with an expression that read "You must be kidding me!"

Spinoff: We reached the port safely by a few minutes late. HAHA. Host dad gave each of us a compact mirror and a cap as souvenir. His daughter gave us stationery from her company. I love them! Thank you!

leaving without u

I think I was kinda pushy.

I insisted my host family that I wanted to bring on board local kuih-muih (snacks in Malay). Host mum and dad discussed for a while before agreeing to take me and my buddy to a local market that is located 40 minutes away from home. We started our journey at 6.30 am to the market.

I didn't know the market is so far from home. I will not insist if I knew this. In spite of my guilty pangs, I was glad I did request, because I would then get to see more of urban areas in Brunei.

The kuih-muih stalls are located next to the wet market. It was a standalone stall just for snacks. I hopped from one stall to another to check out their products. The food made me drool. I'm such a typical Malaysian. =)

My accomplishment for the morning elated me very much! Now I have lots of food to eat in my cabin!

Spinoff: Thank you mum and dad for paying my purchase! My team members loved the kuih-muih so did I. =)

Yokohama Tower
Friday, February 10, 2012
On 3 November 2011 ...

The PYs were all given a map of Yokohama. I was purely ecstatic! But it didn't last long because I thought we could walk around Yokohama on our own. But ... but ... it was a guided tour. The only place we are visiting is the Yokohama Landmark Tower.


It poked my bubble of imagination.

Anyways, I thought it was cool to visit the world's former fastest elevator. Now it is ranked second after Taipei 101.

The view is nice as we can see the whole Yokohama 360 degrees. Since I view things pretty fast, I finished viewing in less than 15 minutes, and spent most of the time in the souvenir shop, contemplating if I should get something for home. I think I stood there for almost 40 minutes just to make 2 decisions: whether to buy chocolate and fridge magnet for my collector mum. I don't know when I became so indecisive.

At the mean time, one of my team members were searching for me frantically. When she saw me she just dragged me away to her destination. She kept on mumbling she needed my help to finish something. I was just simply blur and whatever she said didn't register in my mind until ...

I SAW ...

what she meant by needing me. I was brought to the cafe in the tower. The first thing that came out from my mouth was "Oh Mi God!". It was totally unbelievable.

It was the tallest drink I have ever seen in my life. And we need to finish it in less than 40 minutes. Both of my team members were grinning like a Cheshire cat while I was gulping.

Luckily, none of my other team members spotted us especially the National Leader!

Tidbits: This is the cheekiest thing I had ever done during the program. I know you won't understand what this post is about, so feel free to ask me for more details.
