It's always like this for me.
Relaxing as I wait for the new year.
Well, I can't be jumping all over the place all the time.
I also don't feel like getting too serious around this time of the year.
So, do excuse me for writing simple stuff for now.
Just bitching a bit, okay.
As I wrote in my last post, 2016 has not been a very good year for me.
For one thing, I didn't get to travel overseas this year.
Singapore doesn't count, okay.
Last year I was in Japan twice.
I really need to travel again.
Priority is to fulfill my promise to visit my friend in Tokyo next spring.
Hopefully I have the time.
Hopefully also the ringgit will improve.
Some people are saying the general election will be called next year.
They said it's because BN is confident of winning as the opposition parties are now in a mess.
I'm hoping instead for them to shut up and wait all the way till the deadline in August 2018.
Don't say anything please.
That way they will not disrupt my traveling plan for next year.
How to book plane ticket and hotel room if everyone keep saying the election will be held tommorow lah, next week lah, next month lah all the time.
It was like that before the last general election in 2013.
The nonsense dragged on for months till actually the end of the deadline.
I'm also planning to revisit some of my favourite local destinations.
Pulau Rawa is one of them.
Been there only once and was happy there.
Promised to visit it again but never did.
Maybe this time I really get to be there again.
Wonder whether the coin I placed at the cracked spot of the wooden jetty is still there.
Other than traveling plans, I'm also hoping to change a bit for next year.
I want to be more quiet and just minding my own business.
At work, I just want to do my job the best that I could and not be so kepochi about the rest anymore.
Must remind myself that I'm there just to earn a living and nothing more.
Sometimes I care too much about my work place and make noise about it.
It happened before.
In the end they kicked me out.
That's quite troublesome, okay.
So, no more of that.
Next year anyone ask, I'm going to say "Saya cari makan saja".
As for this blog, I'm hoping to tone it down even further.
It's too serious as it is now.
Actually, I have wanted to do so for a long time.
Around this time last year I wrote that I don't want to write about politics anymore.
I was tired of it.
But then some clever and famous people went to town saying I have been banned and banished from these and those.
So, I started writing a bit about politics again just to show them the middle finger.
Maybe next year I can write more happy stories instead of all those political nonsense.
See lah how.
Oh, one more thing for next year - I think I want to start a small online business.
I think I can sell perfume.
Got a relative who is doing it and said he can help me with it.
Wearing perfume is good, okay.
Especially for people who have problem taking shower in the morning...hahahaha
Okay, I'm kidding :)
It's just good to smell good, seriously.
Anyway, I think I need to have something on the side like that.
Just in case I kena sacked for bitching too much :)
You know lah these days, so many people got retrenched.
So many ended up becoming Uber drivers.
That reminded me of a Chinese friend whose Malay husband took up a VSS offer from the company they were working for last year.
The husband wanted to become an Uber driver but my friend vetoed him.
"I'm not going to sleep with a taxi driver," my friend said. I had a good laugh at that.
That's funny, okay.
I'm not sure what my friend's husband is doing now.
Eh, enough la of my rambling nonsense.
Need to eat some lunch now.
Here is a beautiful song for the day,
|Sunset is splendid, but only lasts for a minute, and disappears with the cloud,
|brightness that passed would never return again.
|Year by year, month by month, all changes during this life just like the floating clouds
|gathering together and then dispersing in different directions.
|what left is weariness
|The road is so long ahead, but the light is getting dimmer
|Joy lasts so short and will never return
|who would see through (or understand) me that my dream is only to be simple (simple life)
|Once have encountered so my troubles
|interlocked with my dreams and fantasies
|once in your arms of sincerity, accompanied by you during time of sufferings
|During the life journey, I feel disappointed
|road is difficult and trouble awaiting at another turn
|One day, when I think of returning, but already too late!
|Ai.....I was born lonesome
|I feel dismal, encountering winds, frost, laughter and cry on the road
|One day, when I think of returning, but already too late
I miss Anita. May she rests in peace.
