You better watch out, not cry and not pout

I guess no one in my office will ever forget that actually,

Santa Claus is coming to town!

Thanks to cute Kevin, angelic Tricia and the great me! (I know I’m perasan…) With the effort we put in, the office is now full of Xmas ambiance!

It’s worthwhile for me spending RM9.90 to buy this “Wishing Tree”, colleagues are putting up their Xmas wishes on it happily. The most interesting wish I came across on the tree was: I wish I have something to wish… WTF? I take on trust that one can only make one Xmas wish per year, then only it stands a better chance to come true (Samantha’s law). Initially, I wished to wish xx will have a crush on me, but in the end my Xmas wish for this year was: I wish Kak Morni’s (a colleague of mine) dad will get well really soon, she has been worried so much for her dad who has been admitted to the hospital. 

  

The cost of this Xmas tree and all the ornaments is equivalent to the cost of 15 “Wishing Tree” of mine + RM1.50. Tricia is worthy of respect from us because she bought this using her own pocket money! (will you all buy a Xmas tree to put in the office when you cant claim?) And that Kevin, me and Tricia had great fun decorating the tree. 

Part of the ornaments: S a m a n t h a and my desktop guardian, meow meow   

Last but not least, to all my friends,

  in advance!

Even more like a siao za bo

During my recent trip to Genting (thanks to Calvin Sim, the great organizer for making the trip a successful one), I decided to do something out of the ordinary: instead of screaming like a siao za bo when taking all the adventurous rides, I chose to MEOW aloud.

 Cat is taking a ride!

This funny scenario took place when I was on a ride of European Express. I meow along the ride. When the train stopped, a kid sitting 2 rows in front me asked his friend who was sitting in front of me, “Cool! Cat is taking a ride! Where’s the cat?”

With such an annoyed tone, he pointed his finger towards me and replied, “Neh! She’s the cat!”

Feeling guilty

I took train to work on last Friday. Then I saw a poor thing lying in the middle of the road when I was on my 5 minutes walk to my office from the STAR station.

Obviously, this poor thing had met with a hit-and-run accident. The wounded poor thing was dying… gasping like a fish out of water. I could actually offer a helping hand, at least shift him aside, else if the next car comes, he might get fatal injury. 

But, I hesitated… On my conscience, I knew I was not being humane… BUT

SHOULD I SAVE A PEST?

He’s huge, almost the size of a kitten…

In the end, rationalization won over my conscience. I just left the poor thing in agony. 

I told Joseph the story in a remorseful mood. Trying to comfort me, he said, “You have done something right. If you save him, he will damage our cable in return.”

I know, but isn’t a mickey mouse so cute that I should have saved him?!


I spot you, creativity!

Inside the glass bottle…

“I want to walk tall, believe in myself, have the courage to ask for what I want and need, and live a life that mattered. I want to wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and know that I am loved and that I belonged. I am desperate to feel worthy and I am hungry for the opportunity to live my fullest potential.” - modified from "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers" - Debbie Ford

Under the apple tree…

"If you are not spending all of your waking life in discontent, worry, anxiety, depression, despair, or consumed by other negative states; if you are able to enjoy simple things like listening to the sound of the rain or the wind; if you can see the beauty of clouds moving across the sky or be alone at times without feeling lonely or needing the mental stimulus of entertainment; if you find yourself treating a complete stranger with heartfelt kindness without wanting anything from him or her... it means that a space has opened up, no matter how briefly, in the otherwise incessant stream of thinking that is the human mind." - A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle

Inspiring quotes!

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? (God in "Evan Almighthy")
“To love another person is to see the face of God.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
Aggie: "But what about the people who hurt you? Don't you ever want to make them suffer?" Norman Babcock: "Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there's bad people that there's no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there's always someone out there for you. Somewhere." - Paranorman
"机遇总是偏爱有准备的人"
“You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” by Walter Hagen
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, body totally worn out and screaming "WOOOHOOOO what a ride!" - by anonymous
When you travel, it’s not like you take a part of each place away with you; rather, it’s as if you leave a part of yourself there, like a part of you forever belongs to that place – the time, the people, and the things you saw; and over time, it gets burned deeper into your soul - by anonymous
