So, for this one I'm just going to write something frivolous again.
Well, so many clever people had already written the serious stuff anyway.
This one is just about how I spent yesterday.
Woke up a bit late in the morning. Did the necessary and then some work.
After that I drove to office even though I was off yesterday because I have a meeting with a friend near the place.
After the meeting and lunch, I went to my usual spa.
Needed a massage because my body was aching over the past few days.
Been a bit of a stressful week, actually.
My current masseuse is a 40 year old lady from Roi Et province in Thailand.
I always requested for her to massage me at the spa because she's very good at what she's doing and I enjoy chit chatting with her.
Of course with her there's no annoying political talks.
She has a nine year old daughter back home and she is also supporting her elderly father.
We mostly talked about that as she massage me.
How's Aom doing at school? Is your father well? That sorts of thing.
Of course I never met her daughter, but now quite fond of the little girl just by listening to what she told me.
Whenever my masseuse went back to Thailand for a break from work, I would buy something for her daughter.
Anyway, from her story, I understood that her life has been a tough one.
She used to work in South Korea but switched to Malaysia after her father got really sick a few years back.
She needed to be nearer to home because of her father's condition, she said.
She wished she could go back to Thailand altogether but has to instead continue working here as she needs the extra money to fulfill her responsibilities.
I actually admire her for being such a strong woman.
She never really complained about her life and instead just told me her stories as a matter of facts.
I don't think I could ever be as tough as her.
Many of us Malaysians look down on foreign workers in this country, especially those such as my masseuse because of the nature of their work.
But we actually can learn from them, if we let ourselves be more open minded.
They are human being like us too, okay.
Some are actually even better people than us despite the kind of work they do.
They are definitely better than us who complain all the time over everything and blame others for our own shortcomings.
Well, at least now that PH is in power, I guess we Malaysians could stop blaming the government in the event we fucked up our own lives.
No more, Ini lah kerajaan yang kleptokrat sebab tu aku tak naik pangkat. Ini lah PM anak beranak dah curi semua duit sebab tu aku tak boleh nak kaya, Ini lah PTPTN, apasal pulak aku nak kena bayar balik pinjaman etc etc.
Yup, hopefully no more those sorts of nonsense.
Everything good about PH now.....not like that evil BN/Umno, right?
Eh, I'm getting serious pulak.
I better stop.
Here's a fun song instead for this early Sunday morning,
How I wish I had choosen a clarinet instead of the trombone when I joined my school band back then.
The lady playing the clarinet is so cool.
Okay, cheers and have a good Sunday guys.
