Blogging Saves My Job!

Didn’t know that blogging somehow came in handy for me at work. Though my job is not IT related, suddenly I am being shoved into maintaining the department’s knowledge based website. Was just given only the admin user name and password and off I went. Managed to write and publish an article within 10 minutes. Effortlessly. The interface used is more or less the same as WordPress. Omg.

I don’t have official coding experiences but when I first started blogging, I was exposed to coding in blogspot. A friend taught me how to view source to obtain the SQL to add on my blog. I eventually did. And somehow understood the commands. Haha. After that, WordPress made it all so much easier with drag drop widgets. Such tools are made in heaven and such a life saver!

So it’s not useless to learn a new skill. You might not know when it will come in handy in life. Explore forth and go beyond!

What in the World…

I was googling for some old perfume and stumbled upon this.

Haha.

What happened to one of my favourite perfume? Wonder if I buy this, mom would mistakenly use it to wash the windows. No other better design is it??

Not too sure if it’s still the same perfume… The bottle used to be really nice.

I used this ages ago and still like the smell.

Letting Go

I had dream last night of a few good friends.

I dreamed of going to a dumpling restaurant. Was supposed to go in but suddenly saw B with her mother and two other friends. Then came along another friend S. I thought S is going to join B for lunch.

To my surprise, S didn’t go inside the restaurant and walked direct towards me instead. I asked S, you are not joining B for lunch? S said as a matter of factly, “Oh I was not invited. Never mind. Let’s eat together.”

We walked towards another restaurant selling western food and ordered our brunch of American breakfast. Suddenly, M came. M is the husband of B.

I asked M, “Eh your wife is at the other restaurant eating dumplings. Aren’t you joining her?”

M shook his head and said, “Oh never mind la. I haven’t seen you for so long.”

So we chatted like old times and I asked about his house renovation. He said, it’s getting nowhere because it’s too expensive.

After that, I asked my sister to help tapao 20 soup dumplings and 10 fried dumplings from the shop where B is to avoid bumping into her. In my heart I feel my presence was not welcomed. So better to avoid unnecessary awkwardness.

After, we all went to my house to enjoy the dumplings. Before I open my mouth to bite into the juicy dumpling, my alarm rang.

I shared with another friend and she said, maybe I miss the good old times with this friend, hence the dream.

Human are all creatures of habit. Of coz we will always hope things remain status quo for as long as they can. But this is life and change is always a constant.

Whatever it is, I earnestly hope life is always good for them, for all friends, whether or not they are still in touch and may good fortune, peace and love follow them wherever they go.

15 Years & Counting

Was looking at my old blog posts and reminiscing the good old times. It was fun blogging back then when you are anonymous. Sort of like, you don’t even have to censor yourself or check your grammar repeatedly. After writing for a few more years, you gonna get haters. They threw all kinds of shades at you – grammar not on-pointe, you complained too much, other blogs are better.. (don’t read lah paan!!) etc etc. Haha. I don’t know how but I managed to survive. But I went off grid for awhile because I didn’t want too much attention.

Then I decided, screw it. I am going to blog only for myself. I am kinda glad that, I kept some of my stuff here. Thoughts, incidents, happenings, etc and it’s amazing to see how much I have grown. My own writing style somewhat mature and I could see myself beginning to let go.

I can’t believe I am been here the past 15 years. Even if there were only sporadic posts. But I glad, I managed to write about anything that’s important or not.. well, it’s just a record.

It’s been hell of a ride. I guess I will continue to jot down happenings before my memory fails me for good. I wish I was as hilarious as before but somehow my funny bones sort of left me. I believe I am funny in real life. I hope.

No Country For Old Folks

I was having conversation with a friend yesterday on the passing on her grand aunt. The grand aunt died from complications due to chemotherapy for her breast cancer. She was 89.

I asked who cared for her during her last days. Thankfully she has a daughter. Like most Chinese, old folks tend to always prefer to stay with sons instead of daughters. So initially she wanted to stay with her son. Unfortunately the son married a bitch.

The son was having difficulties running his business and his wife is the sole breadwinner for his household. So he has no say when the wife refused to let his mom stays in his house to live her final days. Well, bitch, hope your kids learn from you when you are old and dying on where to put you before you join other bitches to rot in hell.

The son broke down and cried in front of his sister to beg her to take mom in. Of coz, the sister always willing to take the mother in. So the family cleared up a spare room to house the mom and she lived there with a broken heart till she dies 6 months later.

Another friend told me about his aunt, also cancer. The aunt had to confide in her sister (my friend’s mom) to get her to the hospital. She didn’t even inform her own children. Once she’s settled in the hospital, then only her sister contacted her children that their mom is in the hospital. Guess what? The daughter in law didn’t even show up to visit her own mother in law.

What is happening to the society now? What’s wrong with these people? They don’t even have a tiny bit of compassion in their hearts for the person who gave birth to their spouses? Well, whether you like it or not, you are fucking 50% of your mother in law genes in your husbands. Haha. Sorry. Can’t help but to think like that. Well, most of the times I don’t really bother about how one choose to live his or her life, but in this case… May karma comes swiftly and in full force upon you.
