more idiots on the road

Jalan 17/1. pasar tani going on. a row of cars parked on the left lane. fine, still can squeeze through. yet traffic still can’t move cuz this lady was having trouble parallel parking her kancil. in and out, in and out, for a good whole minute. >_<

Jalan Universiti, just after KFC.  the idiot driver in front of me signals late to make a u-turn into section 12. fine. i check my side view mirror to switch lanes and i bypass him. but as soon as i look ahead i find this pink (yes, pink!) pesona cutting out from the junction right in front of me. lucky for her, i managed to screech to a halt. so here i am, about a meter a way from smacking her brand new car, but she’s still there in front of me for a few minutes. why? because the car in front of her is still trying to clear traffic coming from the hospital. this lady was so damned stupid, that she risked colliding into traffic, just so that she could get stuck in the yellow box and endure our venomous glares.

no fucking brains, and no fucking aptitude for driving.


i just wasted a good hour driving to Jln Parlimen and back home just because some luser thought it’s ok to call for a meeting with 2 hours notice. obviously this luser just lives by himself, cuz he can’t understand that people might have other business to take care of.

wasted time, wasted petrol, wasting my patience.

need to post more. the lolcat post below is the culprit, making my layout botched in IE. mmm, guess i’ll do Ash’s meme:

It’s green and pink cuz I copied it from Ash’s site 😛

Check my blogroll for Ash’s link.

habit 1 – i like to sleep in lectures/training sessions. i dunno, the voices of the instructors always put me to sleep. whether monotonous, loud, or with thick indian accent, all are like lullabies. but no, i will not accept bedtime stories in indian accent, thanks.

habit 2 – i tend to swear my socks off at malaysian drivers when i’m driving alone. altho the swears are starting to come out  even with company. can’t be helped, our driving etiquette is terrible.

non-important thing 3 –  i keep all my ties readily tied up so i can quickly put them on in the morning. fai-chan says tis not good for the ties’ well being tho, but i won’t be able to worry about that soon enough. ^_^

habit 4 – for better or for worse, i try to see the positive side of everything. even when terrible things happen, or kena marah, or someone tells me something i don’t like, i’d get moody a bit, but then just continue to rationalise the situation for anything good. not sure if it’s better than blowing my top, but.. yeah.

non-important thing 5 – i like comfy high thread-count cotton bedding. 😛 saw really affordable 1000-count sheets in Brisbane, but i was out of money.

non-important thing 6 – i am hooked on the Fighter’s Club app on Facebook. surprising really. before this i was on Warbook, but gameplay wasn’t very well balanced, and i kept getting kicked down by people at the top. oh well, FC will be fine for me, at least till someone picks fights with me.
i tag: H-san, ichaya (get well soon, dear), Azuan (i know you’re reading this :P)

rant: there is a high possibility i will be leaving my company for greener pastures come november 19th this year. there’s just not enough income to support my lifestyle in this city. no point hanging around for medical benefits either, cuz there won’t be any more once we retire. and even if we stay on, say 20 years, we only get like 50x our last drawn salary. take into consideration the country’s inflation rate and our weak purchasing power, it’s really just peanuts.

iroiro na koto

ok ok, here’s my update. of things that’ve happened since we came back from oz. 😛

signed up for gym. Celebrity Fitness at 1u.  86 a month for 3 years. thinking back, maybe i should’ve just topped up another 1K for a lifetime membership. oh well… also paid extra for a trainer; level 3 fariq is his name. aka qael. ^_^;;

it’s funny how you only discipline yourself once you’re forced to pay money. gym and swimming pool at my condo remain unused. 😛 anyways, i’m on a tough regiment of exercise, so i’m usually aching from my 3x-per-week sessions. doesn’t help that i’m on a tough diet too, making me more lethargic than i usually am.

don’t get me wrong though. when i say tough diet i mean eating 8 potatoes, 15 egg whites, and 3 chicken breasts a day. enough to put a small ular sawa to sleep. 😛

been spending a lot of time wif my dearie~ bliss, just perfect bliss~

as for wow, i’m not able to raid as much with my guild friends as i’d like. feel kinda guilty leaving them half the time, but i just can’t help it with the plans i’m making this year. i’ll try to stick around till we drop Illidan, but after that i’ll probably take a break till the next expansion. i think things would be less hectic after things have settled down. *wink*

in any case, i managed to be present for the Naj’entus and Supremus FTKs. missed Archimonde though. 🙁

pretty much the whole family has been sick recently, including ayin who’s back for holidays. everyone’s pretty much recovered, except for a coughing fit or two.  took a trip down to singapore last weekend to see relatives; hope we didn’t spread our germs. drove out with our lovely cuzzie ichaya to bugis; looked at toiletries and diamonds, among other things. 😛 they’ll be coming up this weekend, so we did some major spring cleaning yesterday. kinda wished i’d have waken up earlier: more time to spend with a certain someone~

so to sum things up, a lot of major things/changes going on with my life. so much so that i’ve been coming to work late perpetually for the last few weeks. don’t worry, i always stay back late to compensate. but if management decides to get nitpicky, i’ll just leave. no point working for a company that’s so hung up on trivial things and only pay you 1/3 the market rate. hmph.
