Senile Old Farts episode 1

Sunday, May 12, 2013

For some odd reason, old people can be really difficult to entertain. So they entered my department. Asked for something that we don't have. Then I told them we do not have it and they asked if I was sure. Hell yeah I am sure and I even offered to tell them where they can get their 'needs'. The old farts will keep pestering me with questions why my department don't have this, don't have that. Then they asked me how come other place have and blah blah blah... (It's like wake up pls!!! We do not have enough space to carry all the things you want OK?!) Then I explained that we only carry certain brands due to limited space. They then complained that the brands like Panasonic and Coway are not reliable. They don't trust Japanese and Korean technology and blah blah blah... Then they asked me if the Malaysian brand is good or not. Hello!!! Wake up la old farts! There is a chinese saying "Cheap things no good things, good things no cheap things". Already lived your life more than half a century still don't know meh...

Victory Speech

Wednesday, May 8, 2013

The winner of an election should be grateful for the votes he garnered and he should be humble enough to win the hearts of those who voted against him, to vote for him in the next election.

I am glad to read Marina Mahathir's posting in her Facebook wall.

The words a true winner speaks:
“To those Americans whose support I have yet to earn, I may not have won your vote tonight, but I hear your voices. I need your help. And I will be your president, too.” ― Barack Obama

And also the concession speech quote posted by one the commentators in Marina's posting.

“I urge all Americans -- (applause) -- I urge all Americans who supported me to join me in not just congratulating him, but offering our next president our good will and earnest effort to find ways to come together, to find the necessary compromises, to bridge our differences, and help restore our prosperity, defend our security in a dangerous world, and leave our children and grandchildren a stronger, better country than we inherited.”― John McCain

It is so gloomy on Facebook. Many people turned their Facebook profile picture pitch black. I opted not too. It is such a depressing colour. Everyday, every posting is about politics. Utterly unbearable. I never liked politics but I had to deal with it as it affects my future and my country. But I am really tired of it. 

Then there is the issue with race. Never ending. Forever inciting hate based on skin colour. That is what our politicians do. Chinese this, Chinese that. Malay this, Malay that. Day in day out that is what being fed to citizens of Malaysia by our beloved ministers. To my horror, there are many people who actually believe in what they say.  

Then there is BR1M. Vote buying no? My colleagues eagerly declared that they would vote for BN to get BR1M. Money money money. Who doesn't want money? But where does the money come from? Rosmah? Her money saving techniques are legendary. 

The list goes on and on. I already malas nak layan. Just gonna wait and see what is going to happen. FB currently flooded with too many things. Don't even know which are credible. That's all for now.

Polling Eve

Saturday, May 4, 2013

People still flooding in to the store today. Maybe to stock up on food in case there will be a riot? I would have thought that a big sum of these people are back in their respective hometown getting ready to poll. Not the case at Bandar Utama. ish... 

A handful of colleagues were talking about voting for BN to get holiday on the following Monday. Hopefully they don't vote for BN... I dread the day that my sister graduates without 1st class and needs to pay back the PTPTN loan. She is not working material (sigh...). I really doubt that she could managed to get a good paying job (she claims that getting a job with 3k salary, good boss and time flexibility would be easy). 

I ponder upon a few stars if she is still living in the realm of reality. To test this, I asked her if she knew the average pay of a waiter/cashier at McD. I was left speechless when she said RM20 per hour. That's why I strongly believe that the Opposition must form the new government or I will be cursed with a high spender, high debt sister. 

I also want the tolls gone, my poor Touch N Go card have been reduced to a mere RM0.30 worth after my last usage today. Oh holy PR, save us from the evil clutches of BN vampires.


It has been a while since my last post. I found myself back here again after being separated with my love. My blog was closed for a period a safety measure. As some might know, I am attached to a new job. Didn't want my bosses finding out too much about me at least until I am confirmed on my position. Better safe than sorry. 

That aside, I am just a bit more in touch with my emotions these days. This happens when I have more free time alone and when my love is not with me. Days apart can really feel like weeks when we practically lived under 1 roof for more than 3 years now. Seeing guys posting pictures and videos of their marriage stir up my emotions further. They look so adorable and so picture perfect if you know what I mean. They make me think of what I want. I have always imagined myself having a simple wedding with close family and friends at a very nature setting. Then both of us having kids of our own in a lovely apartment. Grow senile together and happy ever after. I still continue to wish for that day to come. Maybe not in Malaysia. I just don't see it happen here. And that makes me sad.
