Mount Kinabalu awaits

Photo grabbed from http://www.pbase.com/yellofins/sabah_2003.

 

I’d say, Sue and I can really be boosted by deadlines well. It was back in May that both of us swore that we wanted to plan our Kinabalu trip so that we can go next year. But since then, 4 months have elapsed, and we still did nothing at all.

 

The tempo of planning the trip changed drastically when I was told that Air Asia was offering RM8 per flight on the afternoon of 16th and the deadline for booking was on the 18th. Then started from scratch, it took us less than 2 days to decide on the dates + jio-ing people to join + booking the tickets. Geng or not? This also revealed that the whole bunch of 15 people joining the trip is fast decision maker, haha! 爽快! 
 

Now in the midst of finalizing the activities and lodging.

When you are bored…

Remember the extraordinary baby babysat by my mom? 

Bonus in jeopardy

I can’t live up to my new boss’s expectation most of the time and I should not “bomb” my boss so much…

 

There were already piles of drawings stacked on my table, so I put a stack of A1 drawings on the floor. My boss then came to my place.

Boss: What is this?

Me: Oh! They are the ground treatment drawings.

Boss: So, you put the ground treatment drawings on the ground. What’ll happen to the roof drawings then? Are they going to be placed on the roof?

Me: ……..

 

Me: Boss, I go back first.

Boss: You always come to work later than I do, then go back earlier also. It’s not something new, what?

Me: Boss, I can’t come to work so early, I’ll get robbed again.

Boss: ……

My feat

 

My friend once told me that if I visit Pizza Hut and do this more often, the management might have to consider slicing the cucumber instead. 

Trash

One of my resolutions of the month is to TIDY UP my room! It’s getting really stuffy; I cram too much trash in it!

 

I have a quirk of taking photos of the stuff which I’m about to throw:- 

 

Walao! I couldnt believe I used to be this "got-heart". Remember I made you guys new year cards like this every year?

 

When I was a kid, I used to think that these matches were special, cuz the tips were colorful… and I kept all these for more than 10 years…

 

Scented beans… I used to tighten my belt a lot just to buy this

 

A souvenir from another "got-heart" creature. The bottle contained sand from Redang island.

 

I tenaciously believe that there’s gonna be part 2 for this post. Let’s see what else I can still dig out from the cobweb-covered cartons…


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
