Seconds flying off, minutes running by and hours crawling away-and what am I doing here? blogging, mafia-wars~ing in facebook, chatting around, daydreaming....and the list goes on and on. Trying really really hard to store those important points into my brain cells but somehow, there's always a leakage... Ended up where I started. sigh... Gotta try harder.. Work hard, Patrick!!
And I'm broke! Treat my colleague-she's resigning by the end of this month. [All The Best in your future ya! =D] Plus with all the spending during the holidays, I can finally declared myself a bankrupt! XD haha.. Not that bad la. Luckily I don't have to resort to the emergency plan of 'bread and maggi'. But still, gotta control on my spending from now on. sigh....
And I met a really really thick-skinned person too. Okay, not exactly met. More like chatting in facebook. I really don't know how to describe this person. Too stupid and dumb to know we are talking and scolding 'this person'? Or really too thick-skinned till 'this person' can laugh back at us and reply all our 'very good and nice' comments like as though we are talking about someone else. Really swt! (=.=") Imagine someone telling you the world means nothing to him/her, that he/she don't mind dying now, and you in turn offer all kind of crazy suggestions for him/her to do that, and at the same time scolding him/her. And in the end he/she just reply you happily with a smile.. =.=" (Please stay far far away from us.. In case your disease is infectious...)...

All right then, let's continue on the story of my week from where I left it. Let's see.. Wednesday was the party. So thursday is where I start.. Well, it's a Super Duper boring day. Was working that day. (more like working to fight my sleepiness..was really really tired..) The same for Friday, since my college classes already started. Nothing much to talk on there. Boring routines. Supposed to have a karaoke session in the morning, but cancelled..(arghhh.. i wanna sing-k!!! XD)
Saturday, went out for tennis again with Ben, Adeline and Yhong (a surprised inclusion..). This time we went in the evening. Wouldn't want another sun-burnt game. Really enjoy tennis that day 'cause my SERVE IMPROVED!!! (yesss!) Good progress there.. Hope to continue improving my game. Played till about 8pm before we decided to go back for a bath before going out for the gathering to meet Lee who just came back from Singapore at Pakhailam Kopitiam. (Good thing I offered Yhong a ride to the gathering with us or else the 'ffk queen' would have ffk! ooopps... xp)
Glad to meet up with Lee. It's been quite some time since I last saw him. (Used to see him at least once a month last sem.. Came back so often till my mum even asked me about it!) Still the same old Lee-a pair of eyes, one nose, one mouth, a pair of ears, black hair,...what else? XD People present in the gathering-me, Ben, Adeline, Yhong, Yoon Yee, Bernard, Tiong Lun, Chun Hong and Lee himself. Then Lee suggested going to 'Remember to Eat' restaurant and we are like 'We are broke, man!'. But since he was so 'generous' to say the magic sentence-'I Pay', we agreed to go in the end. (More like we talked him into it.. XP) Thanks, Lee.. And glad that you like our present for you.. =)
Another day past just like that and it's Sunday today.. *sigh* Had a 'nightmare' this morning while sleeping..(Thanks for the nightmare wish from someone la...xp) Very weird nightmare. Lucky it's not real. Wanna know what i dreamed? Hmmm... Guess what.. I forgot... xp Then in the afternoon, went out with Lee and Ben to the Curve. Shopping! But Lee's the one spending non-stop. What a carefree guy. No financial worries. Good thing we talked him into treating us the day before.. (ooppss..XD)
Was just walking around. Too broke to get anything.. XD Tiring but at least it's not present hunting la. Actually we planned to watch movie, but little 'Kok-chang' (okay, i don't know how you spell it. Sounds something like that when his dad calls him..) wanna have dinner with his pappa and mamma.. (xp...) So ended up going back at 8pm. Had Big Apple donuts before that. Good day overall.. And I saw a backpack and a cardigan that I like.. But don't know when will get it la.. (too expensive....)
Time really flies.. And it's already 9+pm here. Time to go back to university life. Some might be on their way back already by now. Others preparing themselves for it. And not forgetting some preparing for their new semester in college... I will definitely miss you guys.. It's been a fun holiday with you people around.. Let's all work hard in our studies for now.. ALL THE BEST!!!
Time to start my own engine too~~~ Vroom vrooom~~~
1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2. An old friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.
Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car?
Think before you continue reading.
This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application.
You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus, you should save her first. Or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect mate again.
The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. He simply answered: "I would give the car keys to my old friend and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind, and wait for the bus with the partner of my dreams."
1 - First Important Lesson - Cleaning Lady.
During my second month of college, our professor gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions until I read the last one:
"What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?" Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would I know her name?
I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade. "Absolutely," said the professor. "In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say "hello."
I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.
2. - Second Important Lesson - Pickup in the Rain
One night, at 11:30 p.m., an older African American woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a lashing rainstorm. Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride. Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car. A young white man stopped to help her, generally unheard of in those conflict-filled 1960s. The man took her to safety, helped her get assistance and put her into a taxicab. She seemed to be in a big hurry, but wrote down his address and thanked him. Seven days went by and a knock came on the man's door. To his surprise, a giant console color TV was delivered to his home. A special note was attached..
"Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes, but also my spirits. Then you came along. Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying husband's bedside just before he passed away... God bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others."
Mrs. Nat King Cole.
3 - Third Important Lesson - Always remember those who serve.
In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10-year-old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him.
"Fifty cents," replied the waitress.
You see, he couldn't have the sundae, because he had to have enough left to leave her a tip.
4 - Fourth Important Lesson. - The Obstacle in Our Path.
5 - Fifth Important Lesson - Giving When it Counts...
Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz who was suffering from a rare & serious disease. Her only chance of recovery appeared to be a blood transfusion from her 5-year old brother, who had miraculously survived the same disease and had developed the antibodies needed to combat the illness. The doctor explained the situation to her little brother, and asked the little boy if he would
be willing to give his blood to his sister. I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and saying, "Yes I'll do it if it will save her."
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that takes our breath away"
"The risk takers might not live long, but the cautious never live at all"

As usual, I was late. Or rather we are-me, Ben, Sum and Adeline. Fetch Sum back home to get his camera battery (till now, I still can't shake off the image of Sum in my head, bringing his camera to mid valley without battery and trying to take photoes... XD), went to get cakes and some panadols for headache-ended up there at almost 9. Late by about 1 hour! Sorry bout that..At least better then Seng, 2 hours..xp
Ordered food and drinks, some chit-chatting, led by Adeline of course. Oh, did I tell you that we had about 5 'peaceful and quiet' minutes when she went to the toilet? XP One surprising thing-didn't expect the birthday gal to wear dress. It's always jeans and T. All right, maybe I haven't seen her out much, so that's why I've never seen her in it before la..(looks good though..XD) Well, then more photographs. ~Cut short story~ Finally time for birthday cake and song. Now now, what a lucky guy that Cheng Seng, 4 celebrations for him! That means 4 cakes and 4 wishes!! Greedy fella.. Hope all your wishes don't come true.. Oopps.. Typo error.. I mean come true.. =D And not forgetting yhong, the same goes for you.. ^__^
I guess normally after songs and wishes, everyone will be eating the cake. But the chocolate cake was sooo hard. Maybe coz they put in it in the fridge for us. So we ended up watching a birthday video for yhong together first.(Adeline's idea and thanks to everyone that helps with the video..^___^) That video is...ermm.. well, just 1 comment.. That guy inside is really really NOT me..XD (Must thank Ben also-didn't sleep whole night to finish it..)
Before we part, present UN-wrapping took place. Well, although its not much, we hope you guys like it.. ^__^ Well then, end of story~~~
~Happy Birthday to Wai Hong and a Be'late-late'd Birthday wish to Seng~
Went to celebrate some of my friends' birthday at Paparich on Sunday, 20th of Sept, 2009. 4 person in total - Ai Woon, Cheng Seng, Lin Fang and Audrey Lew. Well, happy birthday -or rather belated birthday- to all of you September boy and gals (or rather Men and Ladies). And all the best to Ai Woon who's flying back to UK soon. (tomorrow is it?..) Met lots of friends there, some i have not seen for ages. Those present there-Khee Leong, Siu Hou, Soo Ching, Wei Soong, Wei Bing, Randy, Yeong Keong, See Toh, Thong Seng, the 4 VIP, Ben, Adeline and last but not least, me. Finally, here's some pics from the event--->

On to presents hunting. What a headache! Walk here, walk there. See this, see that. No to this, no to that. Shops after shops we go. Met Wei Chean in the process. And Ke Min too. ( + Randy sms Adeline that he saw us) Then halfway through all these, Cherish had to leave for his appointment. (I think it's dental.. is it?lol..) After that, had our lunch (more like Ben and me having our lunch with Adeline watching us with her saliva drooling..ooopss..forgot you will be reading this..sorry for telling the truth! XD) Then on we walked for our unfinished business there...
Then reached a shop that I should not have stepped in in the first place. Well, what happened there? I saw some nike shoes that I like so much!! And as you would have guessed, I ended up buying it. Nice shoe, nice to wear, nice to see, and so 'NICE' to pay... haha.. But I like that shoe very much. Since my casual shoes already had a hole in it, I decided to buy it. At first thought that there's a 10% discount. But turned out it'a new arrival. So no discount! (arghhhhh.. officially bankrupt.. bread and maggi from now.. XD) Here's a picture on it---->
So what do you think? Nice? Planning to use it for casual wear and my other pair for sports. Well, enough on the shoes. Back to the present hunting. Search, think, look here and there and finally by about 7pm, its DONE!! Finally... Leg was getting tired. Long time I didn't walk and shop for so long already. Adeline was complaining of back pain.(old already..xp) Ben on the other hand was still so active going into shops looking around.
Was actually supposed to have tennis game at 7pm. But it was raining heavily so ended up postponed to Sunday. Since we are free, the three of us decided to go for a movie - G-Force... Nice movie, cute hamsters and guinea pigs, funny at times. Overall an enjoyable one. Done with the movie the movie, everyone was hungry by then. So after getting some things done at the MPH ( met Thomas Yap.. been a long time since I saw him..), off for dinner of fish ball mee somewhere in Metro Prima. We were actually the last customers there. While eating, had a nice conversation with the both of them. The conversation makes me think just how wrong or misleaded the people in this world can go... Alas, we are not them to change what's on their mind. Hopefully they will stumble back to the right path...
Well, a tiring but nice day spent with my friends. Enjoyed it. Although it's also a costly day for me. More activity to come. Hope to enjoy the time with my friends well before they go back to their uni life.. ^___^

Enough with the complaint. And back to the main topic I want to talk about. Movies... After the Indiana Jones movie that I watched, comes another two more that I've been wanting to watch before this, but couldn't get anyone to go along to the cinema - G.I.Joe and District 9...
Time to stop downloading movies. It's time to focus on my studies. Wouldn't want to keep wasting my time watching movies every week. (although I don't mind doing that.. XD) STUDY, Patrick!!
All right then, a bit of update on my office life. As one of my colleague is gonna resign for her studies, so we took some pics together on thursday.. Here it is...
As you can see from the pics, all females. And the males in my office are all my uncles. What a nice working environment. Can't rebel at all.(Ooops.. hope none of them are reading this...) And the colleague that's gonna resign-->2nd pic, the one sitting down. (Ermm.. No offence but if you ask me what's my first impression of her from that pic, my first thought will be either she's disabled or she has some problems with her legs..Oops.. You there? XD)
There you go.. I'm late for my class again.. As usual.. *sigh* Well, I'll be seeing you guys around then.. Happy holidays and Selamat Hari Raya, folks.. ^___^
Wednesday, September 16, 2009
The whole thing was done in a small room. 9 beds (that's beds right?I don't really know what you call those bedlike chairs..) in total for the event. 9 BEDS!!! And I ended waiting for more than an hour before my turn came. (ok la.. maybe its not that bad after all) Was actually debating whether to continue queuing up or just leave for my class. But I guess I don't really mind skipping the first half of my class. Ooops.. XD While waiting, I read my lecture notes and listen to some songs from my phone. And then finally comes my turn. fuh~~... Finally!!
I guess you guys know the process. No need for me to explain. Some of the measurement taken : weight-60 kgs & blood pressure-132/72. What's the normal pressure ah? forgot already. Was thinking of asking the woman back then but she seems to be busy. And then they ask what time I slept yesterday. And guess what? I lied to her. Well, of course I lied. Wouldn't want to be kicked out from the room for not having enough sleep. I mean it's no big deal what time i sleep right? It's not like I'll faint or anything. And coupled with the fact that she looks like someone who's very strict, I decided to say 'pass' to the truth. (was wondering whether my blood pressure rise when I lied. Coz she was checking mine that time..XD)
Then on to those 'bed'. Nothing much there. But I was hoping that no one saw the small hole at the heel part of my shoe. Don't think anyone saw it though. Guess it's time to change soon. (poor me.. shoe also got hole already.. anyone kind enough get me one? XD) And my heart was pumping faster than a bullet train when the nurse was about to inject. Guess I hate that i-dunno-what-you-call-'em feeling those injection gave me. Then after finish donating 450 ml of my blood, my hand become sort of numb. The scar left from the needle was actually swollen. Couldn't even carry my bag with my left hand. (Great!! Another imperfection to an otherwise perfect body of mine. XD) The other 'imperfection'? It's my left leg. Still giving me a bit of a trouble. Not much though. Hopefully it'll heal soon.
After that, rush to my class. Hmmm. No big problem being late. Piece of cake to catch up..XD Luckily I read what he's gonna teach yesterday. If not it'll really be big trouble. And I was DAMN SLEEPY!!! ( really must thank that 'someone' for this! XD) Luckily it's just an hour and a half left...
Well, that pretty much sums up my day. After that it was the same old routine again.. I guess that's all for now.. Take care everyone =D

Lately I enjoy reading blogs of elders. Enjoy reading posts on their life, whether past or present, their family,.... Well, it'll be endless and pointless to list all. Reading their experiences in life just make me think how little 'taste' I have of this life yet. Well, being a gonna-be-21-soon kid, I guess I still have lots waiting for me.
On to the topic, I actually came across a few blogs of dads having children with down syndrom. I have not personally met any people in this kind of situation yet. So it's actually something new to me. Makes me eager to know how these people cope with it. And I found out that most are living a good life. (for those that I have read la)
And then on to the thinking (reflection) part, I realized just how lucky I was (and still am) to be born in good conditions just like any other kid. Okay, I'm not trying to say that born with diseases such as down syndrom is bad.. I mean which crazy person in this world would wish for a child or wish to be born with some sort of disabilities? (hmmm.. Maybe there are.. I guess there are always some weirdos around..)
Being born normal and able to live just like every other normal kid, I guess i really should thank God for that. Countless people around the globe might not be eating what I eat, might not be drinking what I'm drinking, might not afford to buy anything like me, might not have a home to stay in or even to do anything or enjoy life like me. Just imagine in those war-torn countries like Afghanistan and Iraq. Imagine some of those people over there, starving and not having enough to eat, struggling hard to survive. And imagine you being one of them.. Yes, i mean YOU! Imagine how long you can survive...
Living in such good environment, and yet most of us are complaining hard. (myself included.. haha) Some of us can even afford to waste. E.g. water, electricity, food, blah blah blah.. (you know better than me right? Since you waste so much...XD) And some of this 'waste' may be what those 'struggling' people wish for right at this moment. So each time you want to waste, try to think of those situations. Talking bout wasting, I myself don't like people wasting food. Hate to see people doing that actually. Maybe it was because I was taught not to do so since young.
I guess most of us are born lucky. Aren't you? So remember when you complain about life next time, remember that there might be countless people who wishes for the life you're having. Feel grateful for all that you have and appreciate it well.. ^___^
Sunday, September 13, 2009
then around 5pm started watching Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade at home.. hmmm... the 1st 30 to 45 minutes was boring to me.. (the scenes are quite dark..) so bored that my head was actually nodding.. And just when I thought of clicking on the 'X' button, it starts getting really interesting and funny.. And from there on, was laughing most of the time.. Not a bad show to watch.. Had a real good laugh..=D
Well, on the the main topic.. While I was reading 'the bearded one's' blog, i came across this sentence : "I have an older brother and a younger sister, and I always felt like the odd one out." And then I ask myself aren't I an 'odd one out' too? So why do I feel so?
As most of you know, I'm kinda a quiet person (or rather very).. So you can guess how I am at home.. Seldom talk to my mum.. To my bro and sis still okay la.. But when it comes to family gathering, 99.99% you'll see me do anything BUT talking... to make it worse, I'm not very good in speaking cantonese or mandarin and that's the common language there.. (especially when the talk is on current issues.. oh my.. I really can't find the suitable chinese words for those terms..lol) so most of the time I prefer listening..
So that's where the feeling of being an 'odd one out' came from.. Unable to communicate well with them.. unable to share my views.. sometimes feels like a big fool sitting there quietly when the rest are talking around... but of course if my cousins are around then it's a different story la.. At home also the same.. particularly with my mum.. we don't really talk much unless it's neccessary.. well, how do you expect me to tell her much in a language that i'm totally a 'banana'?!
Of course that feeling also surfaced when I'm mixing with people that I'm not familiar with.. being a quiet person, it's hard for me to start talking, especially when the topics are not right and so do the language... So, have you people ever felt that? yes? no? don't know? Well, you know yourself best...
A new week on the rise.. Monday's coming fast... Weekends coming to an end.. how i wish for a longer weekend... XD Well, hope you guys have a good week.. ^____^
Saturday, September 12, 2009
Not a new book I think.. Just read two chapters of it actually.. So can't give much comment.. But from the synopsis sounds like the kind of book I like to read.. hmmm.. hopefully I'll return to the store to read it la.. IF my reading mood still on la.. (IF la.. LOL...)
Back home, I was and still am reading lots of blogs.. Likes Lim Kit Siang's blog.. So much on our country's issues.. political especially.. and also another blog that I saw in the Blogs of Note.. Ramblings of the Bearded One.. loves his style of writing.. dunno why but it really attracts me.. nice to read his 'ramblings'..=D
Arrrgghhhhh.. it's already mid of September and here I am wasting my time on unrelated stuff... slack~ slack~ slack~.. Once October comes, i'll be having lots to do if i don't start studying now... *sigh* It's always open the book, see and read a few pages.. then my mind will be going elsewhere.. ended up doing study-UNrelated stuff.. really should be stricter on myself from now on..
It's always nice to read.. but i always choose the wrong timing for dat... haha.. I used to be a bookworm.. especially to those who knows me from my primary days and during the early years of my secondary life.. Not so much at the latter part though.. Was always with books that time.. After finish my works in classes or at home, you will most of the time find me reading my books.. miss those days.. if only could turn back time...XD
Oh ya, last Tuesday saw a poster at the ground floor of my college building regarding blood donation.. Planning to attend it.. On next wednesday.. I actually thought it's on tomorrow(last Wednesday).. Luckily i read carefully or I'll make a fool of myself (although I'm always 1 la...XD) going there and asking around about it..
Actually I'm supposed to have class on my birthday, 31st October..(RMB it!! XD) but guess wat.. just after i saw this poster and decided to go for it, about 15 minutes later in the class, my lecturer told me the class is changed to another time.. thank God.. i was really glad.. Can you imagine how shitty it is to have an exhausting 6 hours class on your birthday!! haha.. i actually wonder whether those two things are related.. 'budi baik dibalas baik'? (u reap wat u sow..) haha.. so vain.. what do you think? haha.. but then I haven't even donate yet.. so maybe its not...
well, that's all for now.. have a good weekend and take care, folks...
[p.s. below is a picture that I received just now and I like it.. thought wanna share with u guys..enjoy!]

The time that I should have spent with you, was spent on work or friends.
But why, even though I was surrounded by so many people,
I felt like as if I was the loneliest person on Earth.
I started searching for your shadow.
I love you; I call your name repeatedly.
It would have been great if I could continue loving you. The word "goodbye" was repeated many times.
Even though it marks the end, I can't forget you.
The rain never teaches anything, it only continues to fall.
Always, at the same time in the last train, people are being accompanied by their lovers.
The feelings and desires that keep piling are not fading.
Even though time has passed, the clouds won't clear and the tears from the sky
still won't stop falling.
I love you; I call your name repeatedly.
It would have been great if I could continue loving you. I had become a coward.
If you were the flower that blooms,
I have given you too much water such that you wilted; I protected you so much that
I had deprived you of sunlight. I have no idea why, but I miss you
I miss you
Honey that is too sweet, is being hated because of its sweetness.
When the perfect balance is broken and it starts to crumble, I became scared.
When I understood what was important,
I let go of love.
Separation is the beginning of a new rendezvous,
you taught me that.
Even today, I am still moving on but-
I love you; I call your name repeatedly.
My heart still can't understand. The word "goodbye" was repeated many times.
Even though it marks the end.
Even though I am aware that we won't be able to meet again,
I am still searching for the reason. The word "goodbye" was repeated many times.
I can't deceive my heart....

The caller shouts back:
"Do you have any idea whom you are talking to...? I am the CEO of this company!"
The employee replies:
"Do you have any idea whom YOU are talking to?"
Perplexed the CEO mumbles:
The employee heaves a sigh of relief and says:
"Thank goodness for that!!"

I kept thinking how much more corrupted is Malaysia gonna get?Jz how much more stupid things n act r v gonna do?.. n when is the racial issues ever be solved??? with the recent happenings such as the cow-head protest n the PKFZ scandal, i jz cant imagine how vr gonna achieve our dreams (i think its 1Malaysia..lol)...
Im particularly angry on the cow-head issues.. i wonder where those racist fools keep their brains...
Interviews made by The Malaysian Insider recently revealed that several residents of Section felt their religion had been 'sidetracked' and 'betrayed' by their Muslim leaders. How so? Because the new site for the Hindu temple is just 150 meters from a surau and in a Muslim-majority housing area. The Sri Maha Mariaman Temple had to be relocated from its original site because it was also too close to another surau.-Stand Up For Malaysia blogOur hindu communities had already shown their tolerance by relocating their temple n yet these fools still wana complain so muc... just wth u guys think ur?.. I tot this country is supposed to b multi-racial.. Den y all the fuss?? n to make it worse, those objectors carried a severed bloodied cow in their protest, an animal which is considered as sacred by the Hindu community... Now now, can somebody tell me which party is the one not showing any tolerance and care before they act??.. ok then, maybe they have a good reason for their protest.. so what is it?.. "the residents argued that the relocation of the temple directly affects Muslim sensitivities.. but when asked what these "sensitivities" were, those objectors failed to provide any clear answers"..!!WTH....
On the PKFZ issues, i guess u guys r very familiar wif it.. Corruption, a word so infamous in our dear country.. u can jz c dem everywhere... 1 example wil b during the Raya break n Chinese new year esp.. when so sudd all of us can c our 'very hardworking' traffic policemen patrolling n setting roadblocks everywhere.. n when ur caught, guess wat... dey r sooo damn helpful, rite? well, no comment... since Malaysian r generally kind n helpful ppl....
N theres another thing dat has been on my mind for a very long time... before dat, if ur offended by anything dat i've written thus far, pls jz dun hesitate 2 get out of here.. well, continue on.. the 'bumiputera' concept... From my understanding, this's suppose 2 mean in general malays..(mayb include sm others but im nt sure) so now my Q is R V NOT MALAYSIAN?? den y wif the bumiputera n non-bumiputera thingy.. this term mayb right before but den v s the next generation r born in Malaysia.. v contribute muc to our country n yet those 'bumiputera's get benefits dat v dont! y not jz call us all MALAYSIAN? is dat hard? after all , vr reli malaysians...
N on the education issues.. the issue on Science & Maths to be taught in BM... well, wat now? U fellas wana b competitive , wana b s gd s those ppl outside Malaysia n yet ur education system is doing the opposite.. jz bcoz SOME ppl cant cope wif it in english.. i cant help but wonder wat's our 'great' leaders r doing in the Cabinet... sm1 reli shud wake them up from their sleep...
Well, i think all these problems stem from the Malays.. (not all though.. sorry bout this) some of the Malays, mind you, jz SOME (but a large no. of dem) r jz too narrow minded... Cant dey think out of the box? when can dey let go the past? dun they understand that vr already in 2009 n not in the 1957 era... dat its time to b united s MALAYSIAN rather den by race or bumiputera or non....
Surely there will come a time when we are no longer categorized by race but rather as Malaysian or non-Malaysians, a day when corruption exists at the minimum level (best if none, but impossible for that to happen..), a day when every single Malaysian can live in harmony with each other regardless of their differences.. but i seriously wonder when dat'll reli materialise... lets juz hope dat it wont b long... phew~~~ so many issues in our country.. too long 2b listed... haihzz.. take note this article is badly written.. so just bear wif it ya... jz a piece of thought from a Malaysian kid.... ^____^

John is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, 'If I were any better, I would be twins!'
He was a natural motivator.
If an employee was having a bad day, John was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.
Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up and asked him, 'I don't get it!'
'You can't be a positive person all of the time. How do you do it?'
He replied, 'Each morning I wake up and say to myself, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or...you can choose to be in a bad mood
I choose to be in a good mood.'
Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or....I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it.
Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or...I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life.
'Yeah, right, it's not that easy,' I protested.
'Yes, it is,' he said. 'Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people affect your mood.
You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line: It's your choice how you live your life.'
I reflected on what he said. Soon hereafter, I left the Tower Industry to start my own business. We lost touch, but I often thought about him when I made a choice about life instead of reacting to it.
Several years later, I heard that he was involved in a serious accident, falling some 60 feet from a
After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, he was released from the hospital with rods placed in his back.
I saw him about six months after the accident..
When I asked him how he was, he replied, 'If I were any better, I'd be twins....Wanna see my scars?'
I declined to see his wounds, but I did ask him what had gone through his mind as the accident took place.
'The first thing that went through my mind was the well-being of my soon-to-be born daughter,' he replied.. 'Then, as I lay on the ground, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live or...I could choose to die. I chose to live.'
'Weren't you scared? Did you lose consciousness?' I asked
He continued, '...the paramedics were great.
They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the ER and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I read 'he's a dead man'. I knew I needed to take action.'
'What did you do?' I asked.
'Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting questions at me,' said John. 'She asked if I was allergic to anything 'Yes, I replied.' The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply. I took a deep breath and yelled, 'Gravity''
Over their laughter, I told them, 'I am choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead..'
He lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude...I learned from him that every day we have the choice to live fully.
Attitude, after all, is everything.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.' Matthew 6:34
After all today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday..
A very interesting mail n story.. Make me feel a bit bad abt all my complaints n bad moods n stuff lik dat... i guess its normal for evry1 2 hav this kinda attitude.. but i guess v(o rather i) shud look at the positive side.. even when v r in a very bad situation... v r the 1 who choose how 2 lead our life.. the choice is always ours.. n its our choice n our attitude to life dat wil determine how our life wil unfold... well, lets all work hard 4 a good life dat v wil never regret... ^___^
