Amongst the greatest songs

The desk of Mr.Scud would bow down to this song - hu ha

Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who standing looking.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,
The piper's calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

Synonymous with Led Zeppelin, as Bohemian Rhapsody is with Queen and I Don't Get No Satisfaction is with the Rolling Stone.. I guess.

The meaning I could care for it less, whether it be satanic or not. I live for the music man.

Dinner Invite

I got an unexpected invitation to a fren's house for a Christmas dinner. We interact with each other through our constant business and built a nice professional relationship over 8 months. Was surprised when I got the invite.

Been a long time since I have been to a Xmas dinner, Turkey!!!! Pick up at 8pm


I notice recent bloggings I been posting a wide variety of issues and topics, I guess having more time for myself helps.

Also I notice I posting more song with meaning and lyrics... not sure if they are related.


Glass Half Full, Glass Half Empty

Outlooks in work, life, relationship are like this, everyone got a different view. IT is not the same as everyone got an opinion.

Like it or not when we view thing we naturally tend to see things from our perspective, no harm in that. That the way of life. It becomes an endangerment is that the only point of view you will accept.

Case in point of a cousin getting married. Married on not acceptable circumstances. WTF not acceptable to whom? The 2 fella gonna life together and they ready to face it after almost 8-9 years of relationship and here you are going gun ho about it.

Do you know the guy? NO
Have you talk with the guy of the family? NO
Have you met or interacted with people of they culture or way of life? NO

Dun want to ask any more question, just zip up and shut up.

Time have changed and will continue to change. Rules and way of lives of the past are all evolving. Change is upon is why is it so difficult to let people be the way they want to be.

Is it a crime if they choose to life the way they wish, with who they want?

Fuck Buddy

Well my cousins and I were chatting bout 6-7 of us talking about marriage, relationships and family, the core of the discussion talked Fuck Buddies or FUBU as LCG like to label it. (Horror of Horrors)

Hahahah that will turn a few uncle and aunt heads but I got to admire my cousins for the trust and the frankness of discussion.

Dog, This one for you.
1. Fuck Buddies

Term used for sexual partners that regularly engage in sexual activities with each other, but do not share the usual emotional attachment of a standard boyfriend/girlfriend relationship (or boyfriend/boyfriend, or girlfriend/girlfriend, etc. etc.).

Often used to describe two people who use each other solely for sexual gratification and nothing else. Usually this is a sexual relationship that still allows for each partner to seek sexual and emotional relationships with other people (hence, no attachments) but can rely on each other for a quickie or a booty call .

Many people can be critical of the nature of these relationships, alleging that it is impossible to engage in sexual behaviours without any kind of emotions at all. The practitioners may often feel this is somewhat of a non-issue, taking the viewpoint that while the physical relationship alone is fine, it is up to the partners to decide whether emerging emotions allow the friendship to evolve into a full fledged romantic relationship. In some instances where both parties start to feel this way, a more traditional relationship may develop. However, when these feelings are unrequited, it could lead to jealousy, feelings of betrayal or feelings of being used.

Motives for casual relationships vary, and should be distinguished from casual sex, which is specific type of casual relationship. Casual relationships sometimes include mutual support, affection and enjoyment, which underpin other forms of loving relationship. It is possible for casual relationships to become long-term relationships in the course of time.

We are evolving in the definition of relationships, creating new rules, new levels and exploring new boundries that 20, 10 or even 5 years people would shun and look down about it. WE read about swinging, swapping etc etc and in the internet age where such information is openly available we are trying to embrace it.

Is it right? It is culturally acceptable? (Heck same sex marriages was a head turned years ago and look where we are now) It is morally right? Question after question are left unanswered.

The problem with people embracing this culture, this way of life is the lack or knowledge how its suppoed to work and they wing it. The people who practised and preached this have all gone thru the mill. What you got to ask yourself is, if this is right for you? Not coz if feels good but is it right for you. Dun do it just coz it gives you the kicks. Dun dive into the pool without checking if there is water in it

Serendipity is the effect by which one accidentally discovers something fortunate, especially while looking for something else entirely. While some scientists and inventors are reluctant about reporting accidental discoveries others openly admit its role, in fact serendipity is a major component of scientific discoveries and inventions.

So tonight when I lay back at home watching a movie called Serendipity, it brought a lots of nice lovely memories for me ...Tagline: Can Once In A Lifetime Happen Twice?

Its a movie that back in 2001 when you talk about destiny and fate and stuff. A worth watch. We go thru life a lot of time turning the other cheek and not willing to take a chance of exploring. This however was a movie. In life we take risk at times and let the cards fall. Nt a day I would look back of not taking a chance. I got Jnr Vadai and that makes me smile. Dats all I need

"Yet even in certain defeat, the courageous Trager secretly clung to the belief that life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences. Uh-uh. But rather it's a tapestry of events that culminate in an exquisite, sublime plan. "

Nice, not being the fall guy

It was lovely that someone else decided to take the fall this Xmas. It was nice to see people stand up can carry their actual weight for once.

I been a fall guy for too many reasons in my life and for many people, sometime being nice has its disadvantages. Surprisingly being nasty also has its advantages. This Christmas someone whom I had not expected stood up and took the fall.

mmmmmm let me enjoy the moment, I dun get this often ................. .......... ...............

As Billy Joel said in his 90 minute program earlier, Give shit back to people who give you shit.


Fresh from watching in awe Billy Joel perform, I come in to write a tribute for Billy Joel when this flashes SAD!!

    Pregnant Lady on the bus - ROTFLMAO

    A lady about 8 months pregnant got on a bus. She noticed the man opposite her was smiling at her. She immediately moved to another seat. This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again. The man seemed more amused. When on the fourth move, the man burst out laughing, she complained to the driver and he had the man arrested.

    The case came up in court.

    The judge asked the man (about 20 years old) what he had to say for himself.

    The man replied, "Well your Honor, it was like this: When the lady got on the bus, I couldn't help but notice her condition. She sat down under a sign that said, 'The Double Mint Twins are Comin' And I grinned."

    "Then she moved and sat under a sign that said, 'Logan's Liniment will reduce the swelling', and I had to smile.

    "Then she placed herself under a deodorant sign that said, "William's Big Stick Did the Trick", and I could hardly contain myself."

    "BUT, your Honor, when She moved the fourth time and sat under a sign that said, 'Goodyear Rubber could have prevented this Accident'…I just lost it."



    Jen had an interesting blog this morning, nothing personal or directly attacking about it but it hit the nail on the spot

    When we blog, its a personal diary, its a fashion, its a trend like it or not its out there. People who blog comes for all walk of life shapes and sizes and know what they write coz its their personal view. What we as bloggers type are out thought, our feeling our...etc etc etc at that present time.

    Aint no crime

    The crime is people who read them and formulate an opinion, a judgement and take action based on the reading against the person. Oh boy how many times have I had to defend my self against people who read my blog, going gun blazing and having to justify. One could say F.O to them and move on but we value them and trying to justify, maybe we are just too nice. Now its simple ....Simple, if you cant take what is written in future dont read.

    Reminds me of a recent episode of One Tree Hill where a time capsule was stolen. The student had put a time capsule of their innermost thoughts and feeling for the future so no one present would read them. Good or bad, right or wrong it was read and immediately people resented each other. To make a long story short something are not meant to be read dun read, if yuou read and you dun like... cant do anything about it.

    Back to bloggin... to quote " Here's a thing about blogging.

    When you start blogging you end up writing all your deepest thoughts.

    Sometimes that's good, sometimes it's not.

    Sometimes you seem to be over-inflating that ego. You can't be humble on a blog, or in a diary.

    You can't!

    You can TRY to explain yourself away, but it'll sound like you're creating excuses to those most cynical and paranoid people who read your blog.

    They'll put in cynical comments, either in their own head, or by commenting on your blog.

    It MAY hurt, it may not.

    It MAY cause trouble to your real time life, or it may not.

    If it MAY, it probably CAN and WILL.


    And yes when the sun goes down and the cows come home we will still end up debating about this.

    Life goes on

    Summons Part 2

    There was always going to be an aura when you meet some form of Royalty of another, either its form within or its surroundings. He was an aura who treated people with respect. Sitting beside him as we chatted was cherished.

    So arriving late for my appointment so it was rescheduled, our 30 minute or so conversation was centralized around hockey. Not like I was being made President, or why only after 18 months he want to know the reasons I walked away. He was professional and I did my best to match that.

    Surprisingly he did ask how I am coming along, bout my family and jnr vadai, he also asked bout my job and how I was doing.

    He had certain plans that he wanted me to be apart of both internationally and nationally but I decline both for monetary reason and principal. Maybe in 5 years who knows but for now there are bigger priorities in my life. Despite turning him down he was polite and appreciative.

    Life goes on and we move forward.

    Tuesday, December 19, 2006


    Its been almost 18 months since I walked away from Hockey walked away quietly into the night. Today I received a summons to make myself present. HRH's PA has requested my presence. Initially I decline but then again you cant say no.

    I was the Assistant Secretary and walked away from the politics. I have great respect for him and
    I already can guess with the Elections for the National Body being today and the state of the politics in MHF, this wont be a good meeting.


    Gosh I am sleepy....

    Was in an unexpected sms chat with a close confidant, did not expect it to last till 4am. We talked a lot of things coz we not chatted in a long time. So we 'talked' bout each individual life how far we have progressed or not. Life was about Jnr Vadai and this was a great weekend for me.

    There is always a time and place for everything and sometime in life you dont get second chances, so you could cry all night and this will still be the same and all you would have is a good cry but when it dawn upon you that sometime being at the wrong place at the wrong time or missed opportunities or not taking the road less travelled you can end up lamenting what could have been.

    Then it be time to move on, you can relive the past you move forward and as you move forward, you learn form past screw-ups pothole not to thread on those ground and make the same mistakes twice.

    In the end you can stay at one spot and rot to death or move forward and avoid the same pot holes...

    Vadai moved on

    A song I heard

    Sitting back after a hectic travelling journey kicking back when a guitarist plays this song. My 1st time there and was amazed at his selection especially this song

    It started off a country westers but there is so many version of this

    Nobody's Child

    I was slowly passing an orphan's home one day
    And stopped there for a moment just to watch the children play
    Alone a boy was standing and when I asked him why
    He turned with eyes that could not see and he began to cry

    I'm nobody's child, I'm nobody's child
    I'm like a flower just growing wild
    No mommy's kisses and no daddy's smile
    Nobody wants me I'm nobody's child

    People come for children and take them for their own
    But they all seem to pass me by and I am left alone
    I know they'd like to take me but when they see I'm blind
    They always take some other child and I am left behind

    No mother's arms to hold me or soothe me when I cry
    Sometimes it gets so lonely here I wish that I could die
    I'd walk the streets of heaven where all the blind can see
    And just like all the other kids there'd be a home for me

    I just can't seem to figure out
    Why the folks all pass me by
    Cause I know that it's true that god takes
    Little blind children with him in the sky
    And they tell me that I'm oh so pretty
    And they seem to like my big curls of gold
    But then they take some other little child
    And I'm left here all alone

    I'm nobody's child, I'm nobody's child
    I'm like a flower just growing wild
    No mommy's kisses and no daddy's smile
    Nobody wants me I'm nobody's child

    Time to drive back.

    Son By Four - Purest Of Pain

    No reflection to any event a song I used to be a lead singer to a band in Palm Beach

    I'm sorry I didn't mean to call you, but I couldn't fight it
    I guess I was weak and couldn't even hide it
    and so I surrender just to hear your voice
    (just to ehar your voice)
    I know how many times I said I'm gonna to live without you
    and maybe someone else is standing there beside you
    but there's something baby that you need to know

    that deep inside me I feel like I'm dying
    I have to see you it's all that I'm asking.
    Vida, give me back my fantasies
    the courage that I need to live
    the air that I breathe
    carino mio, my world becomes so empty
    my day's are so cold and lonely
    and each night I taste
    the purest of pain.
    I wish I could tell you I'm feeling better every day
    that it didn't hurt me when you walked away
    but to tell you the truth I can't find my way
    and deep inside me I feel like I'm dying
    I have to see you it's all that I'm asking.
    Vida, give me back...

    Repairing your own Car Part 2

    Having an MSN chat with Jen was talking bout a nagging problem I been having my radiator past few weeks. I pinned it down to the water pump leaking. In my opinion it was not as serious as I had the temperature under control. I had to replace the unit eventually. At the back of my mind I did realise the graveness of the problem and how the cost and bill and damage could spiral out of control, If my gamble did not work out

    Jen drilled into me fact I had already known and in a space of one hour the following had taken place

    a) Fark Badminton
    b) Get a detailed understanding of the problem
    c) Immediately told the Sifu
    d) Sifu got to procure the parts (talk about speed)
    e) Confirm Part got
    f) Make plans to repair that very night
    g) Confirm the time to meet in Sifu workshop

    Well it was awesome repairing you own car (especially when ur on a tight budget) and I had not 1 but 2 Sifu. Snr Sifu and Jnr Sifu and I was like a dumb deer caught in the headlights of the as they went on rambling (time to shut up). So like an apprentice started t work on the car as they instructed me in areas where they application was needed they stepped in. I could say I did about 70% of the work and finally a new water pump for the car was installed along the way the mounting for my aircond was adjusted, aircond gas topped up ( as if I was not cold enough) and tested the car and it worked successfully. Jen also snapped a pic of me working on the car.

    The finish product was gratifying. (see pics)

    Water Pump RM50
    Radiator Butterfly thingy RM2
    Roti Canai & Tea RM 7
    After work Belanja Makan Hokkien Mee & Cantonese Mee RM 15 for Jnr Sifu, Snr Sifu and the baby girl (till today amazed at my facial hair and swimming pool)

    The cost of shivering all the way back home PRICELESS!!!

    Repairing your own Car Part 1

    Project Rewiring Car Lights

    Desperate times call for desperate measures. I aint no grad in mechnical or wiring but it dun take Einstein to figure out the basic wiring for the car light. I earlier in the week at my lot I started to dismantle check the wiring and read just the connection points. A can of lubricant, wiring tape, strips and lots of sweat the problem is resolved. For the record its not functioning well

    A decent meal

    So Monday after a damm fulfilling futsal session, body aching, mind happy from my work out went to makan. My eyes caught the "Milled Kampung Chicken Wine" dish and a plate of noodles. The only think I had extra of was spoons.

    It was a lovely dish a bit oily not like home made but who care. Body felt good mind even betetr and a small burp.

    Not a meal I can afford every day (RM10 per pot), but worth ever sip

    Before I Die - Northern Lights

    There are things in life you wish to see. A fact you cant runaway from. Me, m a guy like to see nature at its best instead of man made thingy... I have been blessed being able to travel and if there something I am dying to see it would be the Northerns Lights

    Trust me its fucking worth watching it. Wat is it? After the pic got explantion lol

    Nature's own fireworks

    Should you be outdoors one evening during winter, take a minute and glance up at the skies. If you're lucky you might catch a glimpse of some flickering curtains of lights, apparently dancing across the dark sky. You are watching the northern lights, a celestial phenomenon that has amazed people for centuries.

    A well-known author after watching a beautiful aurora in its fullest splendour, concluded, "No pencil can draw it, no colours can paint it and no words can describe it in all its magnificence."

    The name

    The northern lights have had a number of names through history. The scientific name for the phenomena is Aurora Borealis, which is Latin and translates into the red dawn of the north. It was the Italian scientist Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) who first used the expression. On the latitude where Galileo was living, northern lights consist of mainly red colour.

    In this web site we will use the terms northern lights, aurora, aurora borealis and polar lights to describe it.

    Aurora Borealis - Northern Lights - Nordlys(Norwegian)
    Aurora Australis - Southern Lights - Sørlys(Norwegian)
    Aurora Polaris - Polar lights - Polarlys(Norwegian) (both northern and southern lights)

    Saying Goody bye

    As we evolve, progress or whatever word we choose to associate friends will come and go. They is human nature. Wat ever reason they go its another story, the fact still remains, saying goodbye to them can be bitter sweet. In some you can sense the parting in some you dun realise till it hits you.

    I understand. "Goodbyes" can be difficult to say. But some of my goodbyes are the bittersweet moments I will never forget. In the end, either way its for the better

    Today I say goodbye to another friend in my life. I understand the reason as much as I would hate to accept it in reality it would take 2 hands to clap.

    God speed my friend. Boooya

    Day 43

    2 more days to go to win the bet!!!

    Being Tag Teamed over dinner

    I guess I got suckered into this position. From time to time we get conned into a position and regretfully have to draw the lines on far we can bend the rules. So an innocent dinner meeting changed to a proposal for business.

    Thanks to my boss I ended up with this on my head. After heading to Low Yatt for another procurement session it started to rain on the later part of the evening. My boss buzzes me to meet some former distributors and sort out their order so the client does not get affected. A quick shower and I was out of the door for my 7.30pm dinner meeting.

    Santini is a nice cozy place and having the Business Development Manager and Sales Manager both females, was not an easy task. Dinner was great and more importantly FOC lol only drawback is I am not drinking. They drank though.

    The food is really good and well priced - they have a brick pizza oven behind the bar and you watch the chef make your pizza. The restaurant is located at the Suria KLCC, right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur city. It provides guests with an exciting view of the fountain and landscaped walkway.

    Generally its not easy to say no to someone who lavish you with food. But our policy is a policy and I was hard head bout it. So we have a lovely dinner, company was lovelier and build with what we got without bending the rules too much. There was lots of lobbying and innuendoes in the end, everybody goes home happi and full Burp!!. Oh yeah they have to buy me beer next time.

    So left by 9+ headed home exhausted and KO terus. Damm tiring day

    Something Soothing

    Man Bai - Kau Ilham Ku

    (written by: Asmin Mudin)

    Beribu bintang dilangit
    Kini menghilang
    Meraba aku dalam kelam
    Rembulan mengambang
    Kini makin suram
    Pudar ilhamku tanpa arah

    Sedetik wajahmu muncul
    Dalam diam
    Ada kerdipan ada sinar
    Itukah bintang atau rembulan
    Terima kasih kuucapkan

    Izinkan kumencuri bayangan wajahmu
    Izinkan ku mencuri khayalan denganmu
    Maafkanlah oh...
    Andai lagu ini
    Mengganggu ruangan hidupmu
    Kau senyumlah oh...
    Sekadar memori
    Kita di arena ini
    Kau ilhamku
    Kau ilhamku...

    Sunday, December 10, 2006


    Working thru the night to reconstruct my laptop (thanks god for backups) was a late Saturday and an early Sunday, TGV Beach bash was today and thats about it. It all fell wayward with plans being changed and changed.

    There was a bigger issue at stake so the TGV not working out to plan was no big deal.

    A few blogs ago, I posted this.

    We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others that in the end we become disguised to ourselves.
    Francois de La Rochefoucauld
    French author & moralist (1613 - 1680)

    'History does not change, but what we want from it does.'

    We are so accustomed to feeding of past history we dun look to the present first before looking at the future. We live daily trying to move forward and time and time again society to a futher extend people use history as a basis of a platform, nothing wrong in that but when people refuse to budge from the basis of opinion you can only walk with them for so long.... sooner or later it be time to move forward. Parting words....

    'History does not change, but reality does.'

    Never look back they say...Some people make complicated things simple, some people make simple thigns complicated, Thats human nature...the winner who adapts to both and lives each day

    A phone call

    With more and more

    Got a phone call from an Uncle, (I did get a heads up he will call) his daughters wedding coming up and to invite personally. Long story short, was not planning to go coz of of my cousin, there was no purpose but how have to put that aside for the bigger picture.

    In a family of 36 over cousins I been the rebel and the black sheep, I been the hot head as well the 1st to roll the sleeves in any event be it a wedding and a funeral. I never been afraid of throwing a plate at a relative or standing up to face one. So when the call came, I knew what it meant. Here is a guy touching 60 (that I look up to) asking a guy half his age in not so direct term to forgive the tresspassing of his daughter and support him. Do I be an asshole and hold on to my ego?

    He knows I am in KL (not so big secret anymore) and it being on Friday made my mind muddle more. In the end I probably go, a compramise maybe, forsaking my position maybe but it dun change whats between me and her. Guess my mom would be surprised

    More IT purchases

    We grow bigger and bigger but where the moolah?

    Who is to configure this? Vadai la who else

    Alanis Morissette - Ironic

    Irony is hard to explain but the example i can think of is the saying 'be sincere whether you mean it or not' - Its a great song with good meaning coz there is irony I can name a few people around me that would drive me up the wall with their irony alas I rather look in the mirror at my self and live my self

    Alanis Morissette - Ironic

    An old man turned ninety-eight
    He won the lottery and died the next day
    It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
    It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
    Isn't it ironic... don't you think?

    It's like rain on your wedding day
    It's a free ride when you've already paid
    It's the good advice that you just didn't take
    Who would've thought... it figures

    Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
    He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
    He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
    And as the plane crashed down he thought
    "Well isn't this nice..."
    And isn't it ironic... don't you think?

    It's like rain on your wedding day
    It's a free ride when you've already paid
    It's the good advice that you just didn't take
    Who would've thought... it figures

    Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
    When you think everything's okay and everything's going right
    And life has a funny way of helping you out when
    You think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up
    In your face

    A traffic jam when you're already late
    A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
    It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
    It's meeting the man of my dreams
    And then meeting his beautiful wife
    And isn't it ironic... don't you think?
    A little too ironic... and yeah I really do think...

    It's like rain on your wedding day
    It's a free ride when you've already paid
    It's the good advice that you just didn't take
    Who would've thought... it figures

    Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
    Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
    Helping you out.

    Black Saturday

    Already from reeling from a meaningless weekend since the TGV Beach Bash came crashing down like a deck of stacked up cards. Woke up today morning a power surge had knocked out my laptop more headache and more $$$$. What level of the laptop is salvageable remains to be seen.

    So the no plans Saturday has turned to go-to-imbi-repair-laptop Saturday

    A wet wet Friday

    Already reeling from the hectic Thursday of setting out 15 quotes closing same day and having to decide margins and make money for the company it can get pretty hectic. Of course you have your standard policy versus marker and competitor forces and once in a while you hold the ace and you get to dictate the margin and when we get the PO, I stand up and pat my self on my own back. My boss usually looks at me with much amusement

    Friday was not that promising either. Having spend the earlier half of the day trying to taper down frayed nerves and tension and emotion of certain family members due to Jnr Vadai's illness and mischief which landed him in the clinic. I juggled my work and a chat with a fren. Sadly there was nothing positive I could take form then conversation, having to defend my way of life and thought and conduct. Here I was chatting with a person who started on a journey to assume what i I was actually thinking, what I was actually planning and blah blah blah. I saved a log of the conversation coz it was interesting, frustrating but nothing can be done when people decide to classify themselves as low class without me giving any hint or indication and for the record I dun even treat me fren and never uttered a word.

    Too bad when people start judging for others and formulating ideas in their head without rhyme or reason. For that we can only watch.

    Getting ready to head back it started pouring buckets stayed around the office grab a bite and finally reach home at 8.30pm Nothing planned for the weekend and the TGV Beach Bash became not worth going anymore. Guess I get into a VCD movie marathon.

    Not being invited

    Today someone that I have come to known from a previous circle of friends got married. Tonight will be the dinner at Melia. I am not invited. I am not peeved not upset heck it did not affect me.

    Another friend sms me, hearing I was not invited. My answer was simple, dun matter if we were hanging out together, dun matter if we were buddies if the person does not invite they will have their own reasons and its not the end of the world. Life goes on.

    As simple as that, I dun give too thought bout where I was not invited. Always other thing to do but too many people anguish and ponder and debate bout why they went invited, why like that, how come, etc etc etc. Hey why fret over all these things, when they born or when they die, what the heck you dont get a personal invitation either.
