Balik Kampung

Two evenings back, after a long day at work, I had the misfortune of being caught literally off guard and spent two and a half long hours in the car negotiating my way back home. I arrived home with two numb toes, a significantly flattened left bum and a crabby mood. Happy holidays!!

Deepavali


Once again, we're right smack in the midst of the holiday mood. Malaysia has the most public holidays. Or at least it feels like it sometimes. We're celebrating Deepavali and Raya Puasa all in the one. The festival of lights is celebrated by Hindus...it starts with the ganga snanam, a cleansing ritual. A visit to the temple follows....with ceremonial rites and prayers to mark the auspicious day. The festival of light brings hope..for a better world and a better life. Happy Deepavali:)

What I'm reading...


This is an everyday tale of rich people. Enjoyable. At Page 53....keep you posted once I finish this book.

Grey's anatomy


I've been glued to the pc...since purchasing the entire season two of Grey's Anatomy. Woohooo,
okay before you people think it's the Mcdreamy pull, it isn't. Althought Demsy is really a dream isn't he? It airs on NTV7 or something every Monday. But I'm too impatient to wait weekly for each episode. As a result, I've completed the entire viewing and now feel.....like I should really get a life:)

Take a PCM and sleep it off

Health is wealth. Following a bout of food poisoning ( chicken foldover to be avoided for a long long time to come ) I have found self weak and listless. Of course it doesn't help when you have to also THINK and write string of words convincing self and others you actually know what you're babbling about.

I'm a firm believer in avoiding medicine when ill. Unless of course you're a patient in which case you are to follow the doctor's order to the letter. Because they've studied long and hard hours to earn the power to do just that.

What I will buy


This power house voice is something to listen to. She's Sabahan...part filipino and I've heard her life before. Just got an email re Mia's new single.

I have been staring at the PC screen since 9:48am this morning. It's been a trying and tedious time for me. I sometimes feel like I'm masquerading as a person who should know her way around the pc. Have you ever, typed midway only to have your fat ( optional ) fingers hit some blasted key....and then ( get this ) the entire page realigns itself in some weird gawd-forsaken way?

Just a few minutes ago...the unthinkable happen. I now know....toes can be devious appendages too. ( Listen up and take note those of you with wiggly toes ). My left toe hit the off button which is strategically placed way way below the pc....and just for a moment ( where I thought my life had ended ) the screen suddenly went blank. And all I could do was hyperventilate for a good 10 seconds before switching the damm machine on again.

And so here I am ( a survivor ) picking up the bits and pieces and getting along with life as best she can. I'm midway through the corrections I'm meant to be doing. All them ticks and annotations to take note. I haven't showered ( which shows some dedication to getting down to work ) and I haven't been out of the house today.
