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

1. The Enchanted - Rene Denfield
Sharing is Caring
Sunday, July 6, 2008
I was in a meeting last week and one of the managers was telling us that "the more we share the more we get." Surprising. Because sometimes our own relatives don't even share stuff with us, and we are here talking about strangers sharing stuff? That's awesome. Isn't it great if the world is without strangers??

Together we spread our wings...
Friday, July 4, 2008
I have been having meals with some friends over the past few days and weeks and these meetings really brightened me up other than having free meals (not all was free since I also paid but majority is). I was elated to finally meet friends that share a similar brainwave as me even though I know I'm a mercurial person in terms of subjects. I was happy to be finally told "It's ok not to be yourself." Before I met this friend of mine, I was kinda doing some evaluation of myself. I was repeatedly told by Worm worm that I do not have a focus... and no focus ... means... the process of me being a millionaire will be delayed or something like that?? It's now fuzzy to recall what he said but basically he always told me that: "Meow! That's because you got no focus!" is all printed in my mind. Whenever I listen to someone telling me to concentrate on one thing especially relating to the things that I like to do, the things I want to try to explore, I really feel being put in the cage. It's like you telling a kid it is extremely wrong to colour the clouds red, prisoning the kids creativity and freedom. And don't you, some of you I know, dare to tell me off "I didn't say that" that's because you were brainwashed to be like the 'others.' When someone with a total different characteristic and personality not found in your database, you label it as 'not found' which can be translated to weird in normal human dictionary. Have you ever been told that you don't deserve to have she/he as your partner because she/he is not pretty handsome? That's the feeling I'm trying to explain. The anguishness.

The friend who told me to be myself, Hipopo, also told me that having good friends that would be there for you no matter what is much more important than the goal of being rich and success on the fast track. That's because friends often benefit friends. If they have anything good... they will also share with their friends. This makes sense because if not .. how do politicians have cronies?!!

I did a lot of thinking and observation and I'm so glad to be back to myself!

From having meals with these friends... they shared exciting news and I think I could be part of them if I just ask my friends! And for the first time I feel "Hey I'm closer to my dreams!" When I look at my wishlist for 2008 on the left bar... I feel I'm going to cross them all faster than I anticipated!!

Like what Nichiren Daishonin said "Like a fly sticking to the horse's tail, it will take you much farther than the fly can fly." I guess that's what Hipopo was talking about.

So here I am taking the opportunity to say THANK YOU to all my friends. THANK YOU FOR BEING MY FRIEND!

I had a good news! My friend is organizing a treasure hunt and I will be in the team! Err... I don't think I'm going to set the questions but I guess I'll be helping out organizing it. Woohoo~

And another essay to write about environment for office. Woohoo~

It's wicked.

Wish Upon the Stars
Sunday, June 29, 2008
I was cleaning up my room - sort of - when I found my secondary biodata book. And I didn't realise one of my teachers wrote a message for me. He had written:

Ideas are like stars,
we never reach them
But like mariners,
we chart our course by them.

That is very inspiring.

Moving on
Wednesday, June 25, 2008
I finally able to cough up some words to complete the poem I wanted to start with twirl, twirl, twirl. But as usual, it would be subjected to change as I see it fits (<-- this sentence has grammatical error right? Please correct me if you think so).

Twirl twirl twirl,
the short hand tickles,
and the long hand whines irritably,
the duo could never be stopped
so what have you achieve in life?

Mathematical Apprentice
Monday, June 23, 2008
My heart could not stop thumping for the one whole minute. I could not believe my eyes and ears of this colleague of mine trying to win out of a negotiation of me paying her 25 cents which she thinks she has the full right to demand me to pay her back that miniscule amount. No offense but luckily I won the negotiation because it was simply lame duck.

The history started like this: She helped me to buy a book cost RM 24 and then later I bought her KFC chicken and a bun which totaled RM 6.25. So the rightful amount I owed is RM 17.75. Correct or not? Knowing I'm a lame person in mathemathics I used the calculator to calculate more than dozen times. No? I showed her the receipt of her chicken and bun and that was the total. Hello... it's printed on the receipt. No cheat. And I don't know why she mumbled "So you return me RM 18 la." I remembered double checking the receipt to see if I really owed her RM 18. NO. I don't. I just nod ...

I first thought of forgoing the 25 cents and pay her RM 18 but my guts is telling me NO WAY. The more I think about it I was very unhappy with her telling me to pay RM 18. Hey let's be honest here. The amount was NOT RM 18 to begin with.

I banked in the money to her account stating the RM 17.75 in her account. And she was, here via sms, trying to correct my mathematical calculation and telling me that her chicken and bun cost RM 6. I was not mad but find it pretty annoying and irritating. If you owe RM 0.25 cents, just admit it. And I don't give a damn about charity to a colleague who has 100 times better sales than me and came back from a company's trip for people who qualified in sales.

I did the calculation for my colleague via sms as to how I owed her RM 17.75 and she replied "OKlah." What's with the OK?

Unfortunately, she got the wrong opponent. Point is I'm a hyper calculative person. It's nothing to be proud of but hello ... what is the point of being calculative with me?! You don't scare me!
