Hello, hello, hello...It's me, the "lazy" bum, who is extremely bored at the moment..LOL. Well, the dental side is off today as well as all of next week for 4th of July. Everyone is off somewhere on vacation...(Melissa, I am really jealous that you are in Hawaii!!!), except for yours truly...

Actually, I could be off too but I can't afford not to work at the moment. Anyways, the software side is open today and next week except for July 4th for Independence Day. I have to "keep an eye" on the guys since our bosses are all on vacation he he he. Since I don't really have much to do at work today, and the payroll guy is already here (I've distributed everyone's paycheck), I think I will get off of work very in the next half hour or so..he he he.

I have to stop at the petstore as well as the grocery store on my way home. I gave the boys their last can of food this morning so I need to get more for them before there is a riot at home. Also, need to pick up some milk and veggies for Jim & myself. Am thinking of going to Lee Lee's market coz I'm already out of the lempuk but am feeling lazy to drive that far. Maybe I'll go to Lee Lee's on Monday.

Well, I guess I'd better get to tidying up me desk if I want to get out of here soon. I'll catch ya later...Have a great weekend!!!!

Who's Diary Entry is this???

* Someone forwarded me this diary entry...I thought it was funny...

Sunday night.
I thought he was acting weird.
We had made plans to meet at a cafe to have coffee.
I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset that I was a bit late, but he made no comment.

Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk.
He agreed but he kept quiet and absent.
I asked him what was wrong.
He said: "Nothing."
I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset.
He said it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry.

On the way home I told him that I loved him.
He simply smiled and kept driving.
I can't explain his behavior;
I don't know why he didn't say: "I love u, too."

When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore.
He just sat there and watched TV; he seemed distant and absent.

Finally, I decided to go to bed.
About 10 minutes later he came to bed.

I could not take it anymore, so I decided to confront him with the situation but he had fallen asleep.
I started crying and cried until I too fell asleep.
I don't know what to do.
I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else.

Today, Manchester United lost the match. DAMN IT..!!

This afternoon I drove Jim to his doctor's appointment. Since I don't feel like waiting, I dropped Jim off at his doctor's and went to Lee Lee's Asian Market not too far from his appointment.

I really love going to that store. It's a huge Asian grocery store and it sells all kind of stuff from all over the world. I get all my Asian stuff from there. You wouldn't believe all the stuff that they sell, from the normal stuff you could get from the regular grocery store to the most bizarre things.

The first time I went there, I was really amazed that they carry the stuff that I would normally get from home but not here. They have santa, roti paratha, maggi mee, kicap ABC, sauce lingam, petai, fresh cempedak, durian, belacan and even cincalok!!! They have a deli section too and I would get fresh cendol as well as tau foo fah (hard soy curd) from there. I am in heaven whenever I go there...he he he. They also carry things from Europe so I would go down the "Holland" aisle and get the mayonaisse I fell in love with when we lived in Holland.

Anyways, as I was browsing the aisles today, I came across something that I didn't think I would find was durian paste (lempuk in Malay - pictured above). My oh my, I was so happy...You see durian (left pic) is my favorite fruit but unfortunately, the smell would knock Jim off his feet, so he forbids me to bring it home. Since I love durian so much and I am "forbidden" to eat it (he he he)... lempuk come in a close 2nd. I would rather have tempoyak (another kind of durian paste) but that would involve me bringing in the forbidden durian into the house...

So, since it only cost US$0.79 plus tax, I bought quite a few of them. I am actually eating one right now as I type this blog.... We'll see later if Jim get knocks off his feet when he tries to kiss me.... he he he

For the last few days, my lower back have been aching non stop. I am not sure why it's hurting so much. I feel like an old lady everytime I walk. I have been sleeping on the futon a lot lately since our big tv is in the living room, maybe that's why my back is all out of whack.

I have to admit that I don't have good posture to begin with. Ever since I was young, I've always slouched when I walk. I tried to make myself smaller coz I was always teased about my height. From that I think I've gotten so used to slouching that I do it without even thinking about it.

Anyways, Jim found my back brace for me and all night last night and today I have it on. One thing about wearing that brace is not only it helps with my back but it also helps me to eat less. I guess with my backache, I won't be on the computer too much this weekend. I'd better just lay down and be the lazy bum I usually am anyways....he he he...

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Thanks to my little boy, Tiger, I am scarred for life. Let me start from the beginning.... For the past few weeks, Jim & I had left the blinds of our big front window open so that Tiger & Sammy could look outside at the birds. They both really like staring out that window, Tiger especially. He would sit on the futon with his front paws on the window sill (just like the pic above) and stare at the birds, bugs or the neighbor's kids for hours. He would get really excited especially when the birds come near the window. His tail would wag really fast and he would make this "Eaik, Eaik" sound.

Being the loving mom that I am, I figured that he would enjoy going out onto the front lawn so that he could watch the birds more closely. So, on Sunday afternoon, I put him on his leash and was about to take him outside for his little outing. I had him in my arms over my left shoulder and as I unlocked the front door, it made a loud noise. The sound scared Tiger so much that he started to squirm in my arms. I tried to hold him still but the more I try, the harder he squirmed and struggled to get free. Alas, he got away from me and as he jumped from my arms, his back paws scratched up my upper left arm and the side of my left boob. The rest of the day, Tiger hid in his den under the futon and no matter how much coaxing Jim & I did, he wouldn't come out until later in the day.

I was in shock when the whole thing happened. I wanted to make sure that Tiger was okay then, when I looked at my arm, it had welt up with red scratches all over it and my left boob has a long red scratch along the side. I was in so much pain that I almost cried... Cleaned up my "battle" wounds as best as I can and tried to coax Tiger out from his den.

Tiger stayed away from me the rest of the day. I think he was more scared than I was about the whole thing. He did come and sleep with me and Sammy on the futon that night. The next day, it seems like he had forgotten what had happened the day before until he saw me picked up his leash. He zoomed right into his den under the futon and didn't come out until I put the leash away... Poor guy...

Anyways, I am still nursing my wounds, it still hurts like crazy.... but I guess I'll have my scars from my battle with my little boy Tiger....he he he

I am so bored today. Not that I don't have anything better to do....have plenty of work but I am just feeling bored. It's only about 11:00 am right now and I feel like I've been here for hours. Though it's Wednesday, it just feels like a Friday to me...malas betul. I wish I could go home and hang out with my boys...

I couldn't sleep very well last night. Kept tossing and turning all night, not sure why. Maybe that's why I'm feeling bored...can't really concentrate coz lack of zzzzzz.

Oh well, I better get back to work...Feeling bored and lazy isn't gonna get my work done...

House on Pooh Corner

Christopher Robin and I walked along
under branches lit up by the moon
Posing our questions to Owl and Eeyore
as our days disappeared all too soon
But I've wandered much further today than I should
and I can't seem to find my way to to the wood
So, help me if you can, I've got to get
back to the house at Pooh corner by one
You'd be surprised there's so much to be done
Count all the bees in the hive
chase all the clouds from the sky
Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh
Winnie the Pooh doesn't know what to do
got a honey jar stuck on his nose
He came to me asking help and advice
and from here no one knows where he goes
So, I sent him to ask the Owl if he's there
how to loosen a jar from the nose of a bear

Unwritten - Natasha Beddingfield

I am unwritten, can't read my mind, I'm undefined
I'm just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned
Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten
I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines
We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can't live that way

Not Ready To Make Nice

Music Video Codes by VideoCure

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I'm not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I'm still waiting

I'm through, with doubt
There's nothing left for me to figure out
I've paid a price, and I'll keep paying

I'm not ready to make nice
I'm not ready to back down
I'm still mad as hell
And I don't have time
To go round and round and round
It's too late to make it right
I probably wouldn't if I could
Cause I'm mad as hell
Can't bring myself to do what it is
You think I should

I know you said
Why can't you just get over it
It turned my whole world around
And I kind of like it

I made my bed, and I sleep like a baby
With no regrets and I don't mind saying
It's a sad sad story
That a mother will teach her daughter
That she ought to hate a perfect stranger
And how in the world
Can the words that I said
Send somebody so over the edge

Who's REALLY Threatening Your Relationship? by David Zinczenko

Who's REALLY Threatening Your Relationship?
Posted by David Zinczenko
on Fri, May 25, 2007, 2:30 pm PDT

No matter how well your relationship seems to be going, there are always threats circling: financial stresses that send your harmony off-key. Divergent interests and priorities that make together-time hard to schedule. But perhaps the most potent threat comes in the form of the enemy invader -- the man or woman who has the power to lure your partner into the tempting and dangerous world of infidelity. And even if your partner is a man or woman of unyielding loyalty, your own jealousy-justified or not-can create a relationship hazard. So, is your jealousy justified? Let's take a look at the prime suspects, and see if we can't figure out what they've been up to.

The Co-Worker:
In most work settings, your partner has maybe hundreds, probably dozens, or at least a few opportunities to develop good relationships with people who could be potential lovers. In most cases, those relationships are more innocent than baby lambs. Still, the average office has high potential for trouble, because it's where your partner will meet people who think alike, who battle crises side-by-side, who work in close quarters, and who have the opportunity to really get to know (and admire) each other. While it's crazy to obsess over every person your partner works with, chances are that if you have a gut feeling about a lurking somebody, there may be something to it.

Potential Threat Level: 4 stars (out of a possible 5)

The Drunk Stranger:
It's the scenario we all fear. Our partner goes out, hangs with friends, flirts with fellow drunks, makes a bad decision, and wakes up with their underwear hanging from some stranger's chandelier. While the scenario lends itself easily to our imaginations, the truth is that the drunk-stranger scenario isn't as much of a threat as we make it out to be. Why? Even drunk, most of us can be savvy enough to know that the momentary adrenaline that may come from said hookup isn't worth the long-term damage that comes later. The exception: If your partner shows a propensity to make bad, dangerous decisions when drinking. In which case, they have to change, or go.

Potential Threat Level: 1 star (unless...)

The Ex:
Tough one. Some of us want nothing more to do with our exes once we break up. And some of us keep have our exes as our desktop background for years after the split. Since we're very sensitive about the status of the ex (according to national surveys I did for Men, Love & Sex, 20 percent of us think that searching the Internet for an ex is cheating, for example), we all know the stakes. We know that our current partner used to find something attractive about the ex-so we're vulnerable to feeling as if we'll never live up to that prior history. While hooking back up with an ex is tempting, most of remember exactly why we broke up in the first place. Novelty is the greatest temptation toward cheating, and that's one thing an old flame can't offer: the lure of something new.

Potential Threat Level: 2 stars

The Opposite-Sex Friend:
Drives you crazy, eh? He meets her for coffee every week. She IMs an old college buddy a few times a month. The opposite-sex friend lurks like a hungry wolf, ready to pounce at the next opportunity. While I'm convinced that men and women can both be very good at drawing the line between friendship and romance, the truth is that it's pretty darn easy for a long-lasting friendship to turn into a secretly burning romance. In the aforementioned surveys, one-fifth of men say they secretly love their platonic friend, with many more secretly lusting after them. That doesn't mean that your partner can't have opposite-sex friends, but it does mean that as the friendship grows, so do the odds of trouble.

Potential Threat Level: 5 stars

That's my inventory of lurking love threats. Now it's your turn to share yours-either merging traffic that knocked your main love interest off the road, or exit ramps you've taken, or were tempted to take, for roadside attractions. Do tell...The harder part, here, is deciding what to do about this phenomenon, whether you're tempter or temptee. My advice is to shine a big light on the situation. Mystery is the shawdowy zone where suspicions take root. So if your partner tends to worry about interoffice correspondence springing up, invite him out for after-work drinks with the gang, or to the company picnic this summer. Familiarity, in this case, breeds understanding and defuses suspicions. And if you're thinking about an extracurricular dalliance, take a step back. The only thing that works is to stick to the one-serious-relationship-at-a-time rule. If you're not satisfied with the primary relationship, either fix it or end it. Then when Paula from accounting or Peter from HR starts hanging around your desk, you'll reject the offer with good reason, or head off into the supply closet with nary a care in the world (unless, of course, there are security cameras and company rules about this sort of stuff).

Balik Kampung.....

Hemm, it looks like I might be able to go back to Malaysia this October for raya puasa as well as my cousin, Hazel's wedding...yes!!!! That is, if my bosses let me go la...I have to ask them when I get back to work on Tuesday.

At first we weren't sure if I could go back or not since Jim was out of work for about 3 months due to his illness but after looking at our budget, it looks like I will be able to. Unfortunately, Jim most likely won't be able to go since he was out sick and is still not 100% healthy. He will be left with the boys for about 2 weeks while I am gone.

Anyways, I am really excited about going back. This will be the 2nd time I am able to go back for raya puasa. The 1st time being November '05. I miss my family so much and am glad that I am able to see them again, tho I am a little anxious about seeing my dad considering how things went between us the last time I was there. Oh well, if I see him, that is okay, if not that is okay too, I'm not going to worry about it.

I guess I'd better book my ticket as soon as I get the okay from my bosses..... I'll let you guys know when everything is confirmed.
