I blended in!

My new colleagues from the consultant firm accused that I’m a threat to them: I’m the cause of sound pollution…

 

Colleague A: I have 2 news to share; 1 good and 1 bad.

Me: Tell me the bad one first.

Colleague A: The bad news is that, you won’t see me tomorrow. I’ll be on leave. And the good news is, I DON’T HAVE TO SEE YOU TOMMOROW!

What I did this Raya: a visit to Sekinchan

锄禾日当下

汗粒禾下土

谁知盘中餐

粒粒皆辛苦

 

I guess the “粒粒” are not that susah nowadays. See, there were no farmers working also!!

Don’t complain about the quality of the stitching, this is the
best I can do liao…

I took the almost-die-out Selangor bus to reach Kuala Selangor.


Similar misjudgment happened again:-

Bus conductor:Are you from china?

Me: …. No…..

Bus conductor: Then must be from Vietnam!

Me: No… I’m a Malaysian!

Bus conductor: Ha???!!!

 

I don’t want to show the rest of the photos taken, because I look fat and plump in all of them, but the following is exceptional!

Great sense of photography, huh?

Mana boleh tahan….

I’m gonna run away from home tonight!

 

My house is under renovation and it is in a total mess!

 

The original kitchen and the toilet have been hacked to make way for the following:-

 

The original kitchen + 1/2 of the toilet = becoming my brother’s new room

While another 1/2 of the toilet + portion of the hallway = becoming the new kitchen.

Then the new toilet will be extended outwards.

 

The main reason why I must flee my house is that I think my urinary system is gonna fail soon. Now that there’s no toilet in my house, I have to borrow my neighbor’s toilet whenever there’s call of nature. I have to flex my pubococcygeus muscle real tight in the middle of the night if the urge to pee is there because it’s not convenient to disturb my neighbor.

 

Besides, don’t you think my house is like inviting criminals now?
 

Nope, NO doors…

The chronicle of a 花痴: Saja…

Hmm…. Cute!

 

Oh, cuter!

 

Walao, cutest of all!

 What’s wrong with me? I’m just trying to imply that: the more I look at him, the cuter he becomes! Haha!

Sigh heavily….

The company’s sending me for secondment to a consultant firm to pick up design skills about drainage/hydrology. I was supposed to report myself to the consultant firm on Oct 1st but the date has been deferred to a week later because I wanted to join the how-to-draw-shit-in-3D training. 

Due to some hidden agendas, I wish to further postpone the secondment for another one month. So I tried to negotiate with my boss:-

Me: Boss, I have a request…
Boss: What is it?
Me: Can I go learn a software about alignment?
Boss: If you go then how about your secondment?
Me: Can I defer it for another month?
Boss: Then you wanna learn about drainage or alignment?
Me: Err… Can I learn both?
Boss: If you are everywhere, you are no where!
Me: 

I’m what I’m trying to draw

The company sends me for a 3-day advanced AutoCAD course starting from today. It costs the company RM900 per person.

 

I know I should be grateful and pay my undivided attention during the training. But the instructor just fails to attract my interest to listen to him. Instead, I’m trying to draw a perfect pad of shit in 3D (and doing light chatting at the same time also)  
 

 

Perfect shit in the making…


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
