New collection – March 2009!

Life is so boring that you need something to look forward to! E.g. collecting Shell-Ferrari models

 

In memory of Selamba, the black cat

There was a frequent intruder into my female staff quarters in Sg. Siput: a black stray cat. For this, I named her “Selamba”.

 

I can’t help butto relate this cat to the “jelmaan jin” story a Malay friend once told me.

 

For the following reasons, I suspect the cat is actually some kind of spirit in a cat’s form:-

1) This is the first cat that I have ever encountered which does not like people to caress her!

I risked my life for recording this as an evidence that she does not like people to caress her!

2) She has noted fondness for soft surfaces as her sleeping/lying spots, e.g. my housemate’s bed, on the carpet & sofa.

3) She watches TV!

4) She never meows!

5) If I stare at her, she stares back!

6) There was 1 time, I caressed her -> she scratched me -> I knocked her head -> she then meticulously planned a ruse to take revenge on me by hiding herself below the starting step of the staircase patiently.  Once my left foot landed on the lower ground, she dashed towards my foot and bit on me!

 

Due to the hygienic issue induced by this eerie but cute cat (sitting on the dining table, vomiting in the house, licking on my housemates’ food & etc), 1 of my housemates has caught her and dumped her somewhere away from our quarters…

 

I kinda miss her you know?

Cute ma!

I’m traumatized…

After my 3rd surgical experience – to remove my …..

Wisdom tooth!

 

“Wreckage” of my tooth! At first I thought I would have a tooth in one piece as collection… The dentist has to cut my tooth into pieces in order to extract it

My orthopantomogram (OPG)

 

I have 2 impacted wisdom teeth (1 on lower left & 1 on lower right) which on and off cause swelling and redness of the gum around the teeth. After all the endurance, it was until 2 weeks ago that I was determined to have an once and for all extraction for the one on the lower left because it triggered an infection around the gum and also slight swelling along my jaw line and I suffered fever for this.

 

A dentist from a private dental clinic once quoted me RM500 for the extraction of my wisdom tooth. This’s gonna cost me a small bomb! This dearly priced service has then rendered me to opt for government dental clinic in Kuala Kangsar.

 

My surgical appointment was on today. “This is a tough one…” the dentist told me so after glancing through my OPG.

 

The extraction took 1 hour. Post-extraction, the dentist commented the following:-

“This is the longest surgery I have ever had and your tooth is really big!”

 

A chip of my tooth

To me, it’s disgusting to gulp down my own blood, so I chose to spit the blood together with my saliva into a plastic bag along my 3-hour drive back to KL.

Not Ribena!

 

It is now 9 hours after the surgery but blood is still oozing out of the wound…

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
