Give Till It Hurts? January 20, 2011

Had conversations with 2 different people about going the extra mile and getting nothing in return or worse – crap. I don’t know if it’s cos we expect more or people our age and older get lazy… but I’ve been disappointed a lot lately.

I think in general I rather not get presents then get rubbish, I have no idea what to do with and some people have kinda gotten the picture *whew* but in general I go the extra mile because I care, because I don’t want to disappoint and I’m learning that I can’t expect the same… so what do you do now? Do you become the same? Or do you keep doing what you’re going and get disappointed? I don’t know really…

Physically, I’ve learnt to cut back a bit, I want to be a good mother, wife, daughter, friend etc but I know I can’t be all, all the time. I’ve learnt and am learning to say, I’m sorry but I’m tired or I’m sorry but I can’t deal with it right now. My mantra was I Can Sleep When I’m Dead it’s changed, I know I need to rest but I can’t help waking up early to get stuff done, I’ve always been that way, early bird catches the worm and all that. But it is getting to the point that if people don’t bother, I feel I shouldn’t bother either.


Messed up Lungs September 21, 2010

In May I got pretty sick, all of us did. I blame Mariana. She hardly gets sick so I reckon that the virus that finally brought her to her knees was a particularly bad strain. I got it really bad, 5 visits to the doctors, Allen had 3 visits and Rylen 2 visits. My lungs turned to shite and I now have asthma (again).

Being pregnant again and getting a bad cough this round from the husband means I can’t use the inhaler as often as I like/need. I use it only if I’ve spent more than half a day struggling to breath easily and can’t take it any more. Sometimes it goes away you see and other times I really need it.

Today I ran for the bus and I was winded. It’s not a fun feeling… I know know how MH feels after 15 mins on the cross trainer. I’m still going to try going for a jog this weekend and I really can’t deal with it then, I’ll sign up for the gym on campus and give up 2 lunches a week to try and not turn into a lard ass. My arms really are starting to gross me out as well and I really miss my collarbone.


Axl and that Old Hag July 21, 2010

Rylen was a joy last night.

Of course, something has to HAPPEN… this time it was Axl, the dude is an over sensitive asshole, yes, I’m that annoyed. Now, I’m all for letting my dogs off the leash cos I trust them enough to know that 1. they aren’t going to bite anyone 2. they won’t run away 3. they come back when called. So especially when it’s late and hardly anyone’s around, freedom is great joy. Axl the Asshole however…. grrr… all I did was tell him No, stop barking and he got all upset and decided he didn’t want to come within 50 meters of me, ass….. hole right? *rolls eyes*.

Then to add to this a naggy old woman with a very cute but VERY smelly  retriever starts giving me grief about leashing him and OHMYGAWD I’m TRYING, can you NOT see, I’m TRYING. 5 minutes later and we’re closer to my place and I know I need the husband’s help cos well, the lil bastard ain’t gonna wanna be going into the lift with me. So I’m waiting under my block, Stomper’s off the leash and Axl is 50 meters away. And the stupid old women comes and again…. sigh. So this time she starts nagging at R and threatens to complain.

OW – I’ve asked you to leash your dog many times
M – have you not seen me try?
OW – I don’t care
M – What?!
OW – what if your dog bites me?
M – are you crazy, he’s smaller than a cat and he’s only trying to make frens with your dog!
OW – that’s not my business
M – ok, then go AWAY
OW – leash your dog
M – seriously, you need to shower your dog
OW – that’s not your business
M – it kinda is cos it’s animal abuse
OW – leash your dog
M – ohmygawd woman, I’ve been trying to do just that, now go away and mind your own business
OW – I’m gonna complain
M – go ahead
OW – I am
M – I said go AHEAD

Fact is, she can complain but she’s not suppose to keep a retriever in a flat either and OHMYGAWD I WAS TRYING TO LEASH THE BLACK BASTARD UP!! He was also punished and will not be off the leash for a week.

Note to oneself – Do not ever become like that, EVER!!

You know how sometimes you’re speechless when a person says something dumb. Cos I know I’m opinionated, have a different point of view and I can argue till the cows come home or stop short if I don’t think it’s worth it.

But when someone is so stupid, I wanna just smack them… this person is a graduate and yeah that don’t really mean jack these days but you know one of the top universities in Asia and these are the people we hand out degrees too. Oh but what’s SERIOUSLY scary, she’s going to be a teacher!!

Now according to the hubba who used to lecture, MOE thinks anyone can teach… I beg to differ but obviously, MOE thinks that supplying the local school system with idiots is the way to deal with the teacher shortage. I shudder!!

But right now I’m so bloody annoyed I wanna bitch slap the stupid outta this person and then hand her a face blotter or two! GROSS!

Oh and I had to LIE and give her a testimonial, I feel so DIRTY 😦

So, I set my alarm last night, woke up on time, no need to snooze, so I packed my breakfast, gave the dogs their vitamins and a treat, showered, washed my hair and wondered why it was so bright. Passed 7 clock and figured it was wonky… passed another…hmmm… got back in my room and realised that I had missed the bus because I was already 25 mins behind time. I just stood there and wondered WTF? I mean seriously, did I fall asleep in the loo something?

Checked my mobile and it showed 7.10am and the clock 7.35am. Then I figured it out. I took out my sim card to try and teach my Dad how  to use my old phone (long story) and I guess when I put it back into my phone the time lapsed… I didn’t even know that happens! Then again, yesterday I was looking at my calendar and I was on the wrong date!! I was thinking it is Tuesday right? right? Cos it says Thursday on my phone and I didn’t do anything different! I tell ya,  someone is trying to fuck with me …grrrr.

Beer-drinking model faces caning in Malaysia July 22, 2009

I don’t think about this … much but there are days like these where I’m so freaking delighted that 1. I’m not Muslim and 2. that I’m not Malaysian. The story below makes me cringe and smack someone. According to a muslim friend, woman aren’t even suppose to be hit .. the the issue would then be the country or maybe in this case the state? Urgh, makes me sooooo mad!

Beer-drinking model faces caning in Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR, July 21, 2009 (AFP) – – A religious court in Malaysia has sentenced a tearful Singaporean Muslim model to six strokes of the cane after she drank beer in a nightclub, reports said Tuesday.

Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno, 32, pleaded guilty to consuming alcohol at a hotel nightclub in the eastern state of Pahang last year, the New Straits Times newspaper reported.

“We feel the sentence is fair after going through the prosecution’s argument and since the rotan (cane) is provided for in the law,” Pahang Sharia High Court judge Abdul Rahman Yunus said, according to the paper.

“The rotan is aimed at making the accused repent and serves as a lesson to Muslims,” he added, also fining Kartika 5,000 ringgit (1,412 dollars).

The model, who cried when the judgement was delivered, said she would appeal.

State religious officials could not be reached for comment on the case.

Malaysia, which has large Indian and Chinese minorities freely enjoying alcohol, has a two-track legal system. Civil courts operate alongside state-based sharia courts, which can try Muslims for religious offences.

The Team July 6, 2009

I’m not that great a team player, I don’t follow instructions all that well, I question authority and might simply ignore it if it doesn’t make any sense to me at all. However, I’m part of a pretty good team, no one is perfect of course but I’m enough of a team player to feel like absolute shit because I’m stuck at home while my team is suffering on half strength. I hate this. Plus I’m already feeling bored and it’s only day one! I don’t even have gym to go to… only the puppies are happy!

Oh I Cringe! June 29, 2009

I know this site is kinda dead. I have baby brain and I haven’t done anything exciting in months. I’m craving a night out with the girls with drinks (like booze, not milkshake) and dancing, making fun of people, bitching the fugly-ness on the dance floor, durian, a cycling trip to Ubin, wakeboarding session, a huge seafood dinner and a massage where I can lie down on my tummy!

Now I shall proceed to talk about the weather… I think  the haze is coming back. This is my last week at gym and all I have now is a weekly swimming session and lotsa walks but I have asthma and the haze is just descending at a wrong time (I know there is no right time)! Argh. This sucks ass! I need to gain access to another gym if the haze gets worse. Blah.
