Christmases and New Years
For the past 7 years, I didn’t have to think where or how was I going to celebrate my Christmases and New Years. I have been truly blessed when Datin was still in KL, he would throw warm and full of camaraderie parties at his humble home. There would be warm food, filled with laughter and happiness to be able to spend these two important days every year. It’s also time to come up with new year’s resolutions, trying hard to stick to them, probably throwing them away mid of the year, with us consoling each other, there’s a chance to do so, another year. Haha! The procrastination!
I truly miss the fellowship. Datin is like the glue that holds the group together. I am sure, those friends in Singapore would be truly blessed with Datin’s presence!
End of the World
So the world didn’t end? Sigh. Haha. Was hoping for fire hail storms or floods that eradicate mankind from sins. I read online, there’s somebody actually built Noah’s ark to wait for the end of the world. I told my friends when they were commenting on that, it (the flood that eradicates mankind) won’t happen again. The Bible said, God has promised Noah that it won’t happen again and seal the covenant with a rainbow. Friends just look at me as if I’ve gone nuts. It doesn’t pay to be well versed about the Bible at times. Haha.
I don’t know why am I still getting pimples at this age! I thought my adolescent’s nightmare is far from over but I was wrong. I was blessed with good skin for a few years till lately, pimples began to sprout sporadically on my face. At the most inconvenient spot – the nose, the cheek, the side of my face! The worse thing is, they never seem to disappear even after it was healed and left a big scar marks. Been contemplating to go to skin specialist to remove the marks but then, am I that vain? Nobody is looking anyway! If I could bear with me, going out without combing my hair at times (I really forgotten! In fact, I forgot to comb my hair 3x last week, when going to work till I went to the ladies in the office and horrified at what I saw on the mirror! And luckily, out-of-bed look is the in-thing now!).
I guess this happens every year end. It’s a stupid policy to force people to clear their leaves by year end. What if the employees have many plans the following year? Getting married, having a child, going for extended holidays, or getting an MBA? No.. we cannot do that in our office. MUST clear leave. So now, the office is basically empty for a week because everyone is forced to clear leave. The only thing I could hear now in office is my fingers typing on the keyboard and the leaky air conditioner above me, punctuated with my old woman’s coughs. I think I need to get a blood test.
A colleague came to my cubicle and asked me what’s that smell? I was using Body Shop’s Moringa Milk Lotion. Then the colleague suddenly blurted, I thought what dishwasher smell is that? Then I looked at her and glared. She scurried away. Well, if you have nothing good to say, it’s best to shut up lah. I happen to like my lotion to be smelling like dish washer for all I care!
We were at the cinema yesterday for Jack Reacher when suddenly a waft of foul smelling stuff walked past us. We almost fainted. It was a couple, looking for their seats. I mean, what is so difficult? You have bought tickets at the counter and saw where you are going to sit, so just follow lah your numbered seat. They were hovering at our seats and looked at us. We glared back at them and they went away. We think to ourselves, “Please God! Don’t sit in front or at the back of us! Please! Please go away!” When they went away, their smells lingered for a good 2-3 minutes.. gawd! We thought we would never be able to get rid of that terrible smell for long! Then I watched them walked up and down the aisle on the other side and they still couldn’t find their seats. When the movie was about to start, they found their seats.. which was the other end of our row! There were two guys sitting there and one of them was seen covering his nose in agony! Poor thing! Then I also saw, the people sitting behind them, also pinching the nose! Phew! That was close! I prayed silently in my heart that they would NOT change seats during the movie… to be nearer to us.. otherwise. I think I would ask them to go back to their original seats! A note of advice – Please get your own cable tv and watch movies at home to spare other paying guests the agony of 2 hours of smelling you! Also, learn to wash up properly! Geez! I think my socks for 2 days smell even better than them!
