More than half a year....

More than half a year have passed without yours truly realizing that I have not been blogging. A lot of things have happened. Attended several weddings, birthday parties and other social gathering - all happy occasion. Nevertheless, at the moment I am quite depressed. Sigh.

There's nothing specific that I am truly dissatisfied. More like that it is the accumulation of all the things that have happened for the past half year.

Sometimes the event around me seems like a blurry images. At times I felt that I do not want to wake up and face the world. Times like this, I told myself that there are a lot more people that is in worse position than me. AND that is the problem. I know I should be more grateful with my life. I have a good job. It pays quite reasonable in comparison with my peers. Sure, the hours sucks and the pressure is maddening but you can't have it all - right? I am surrounded by family and friends. I get to buy things that I want.

BUT I still feel depressed.. Wondering what's wrong with me. I just hope that my blue mood would soon as possible. Although if a friend read this, he/she might be wondering why am I depressed. Or am I actually depressed as I do look happy to most people. Maybe my standard of happiness is higher than most. Something to ponder on.

World Cup Fever: Japan broke my heart

Gosh!!! I wish I do not need to work during World Cup. However life needs to go on. I need to earn a bit of $$$$. Therefore with the sense of responsibility, I tried to restrain myself by not watching all of the matches.

Besides my love for the game, I have resolve not to watch the Japanese team in this World Cup. They really broke my heart when they lost to the Aussies. No offense to the Aussies, but I have supported Japan for so long. For them to lose it at almost the end of the game made me so dissappointed. Not to mention the traumatic experience that it garner.

My only hope.. please let Japan go through the second round. I think they deserve it. Sigh............

At the moment I am consoling myself by watching Argentina and Spain. I think that Argentina vs Spain would be a match made in heaven!!!

Gosh... Finally a presentation!!! After leaving the uni days I have not had any opportunities to do any presentations (with the exception of the interviews) yet. At least a proper one. I did not realize how I truly miss it until recently where I was part of a group presentation.

I was great!! At least I would like to think so : )....

I wish I would have more opportunities in the future to do more presentations and/or public speaking. I never truly appreciates my experience in uni days until recently.

As for other things... basically the same thing all over again. Work, work n work : ). At the moment, I did not even have any spare time to devote to current topics. Arghh.. I do hate to be behind time in respect to the ongoings around the world. Can't be help though since I only have enough spare time to eat n sleep. This can be observe through how infrequent are blog's post are recently.

Anyway, gotta go now. Got to catch with my beauty sleep. Tommorrow is another day...

Salute to PDRM

The establishment of a permanent panel to monitor the conduct of the police force sounds very ideal. Everyone lauds the move by the government; especially after the case of the nude squat makes it big into the headlines, never mind that these police officers are just following their regulations.

In reality, it could also leads to serious harm to the nation’s enforcement system while at the same time being an instrument for abuse. Without proper thought being put into the drafting of the structures and basis of the panel, it could hinders the police in doing its job, solving crimes and apprehend the criminals involved. While everyone stated they were happy at the move, there were no concerns raised at the biggest weakness of the existence of the panel.

That would be the abuse of the system by the public in general and the criminals themselves specifically. There was only statement pleading the public to make complaints based on fact and not baseless accusations. If mere words can control the public and even the police force, then the establishment of the panel itself would be redundant.

It doesn’t take too much of imagination how the panel could be an instrument of obstruction to justice. After all, a smart criminal might use the opportunity to lodge a report to prevent further or initial investigations. A jilted lover could be bent on revenge and take advantage of the system. When and if a panel is being set, first and foremost it is not to protect the public from the police!!! That’s the police force job. Sure, the question on who will guards the guardian remains. However if the police is being kept with tight leash it will seriously hampers the true purpose of the police force. The police would have to tip toe around the ice in order not to draw negative attention on themselves. Then, who would solve the crimes?

One of the authorities was quoted that as a government servant that the police have to be loyal to the country and the government. I do think that it is noble indeed that these officers continue to serve regardless of the country’s opinion on them. It is indeed hard to lay down your life for your nation when you are viewed slightly better than the criminals that you put behind bar.

The police force is certainly has its fault. The fact that it accepts recommendations reflects well on this institution. However, there are no reasons to start a so called witch hunt which have been sparked by the incident of the nude squat case; especially the motive of bringing up the matter to the press is quite questionable.

Peak period to Super Peak!!

As an auditor, there is always a period defined as peak period which usually would be the first 3 months of the year as the companies usually have Dec year end. As for me, in my department we had a brief informal briefing for all the new staff (those who were fresh grads and had less than a year experience) with our department directors regarding the peak period. Basically how to survive it in one piece. It is taken for granted that we will survive it, it just in what form that we come out after the period end. In fact they even mentioned that nowadays there are no so called off peak period. thus the original peak period could be deemed as a super peak period!! Gosh... these ppl!! However, because of these kind of things (i.e team working and hands on approach by the top management) that I love (ok... that might be putting it a bit too thick!!!) my work.. most of the time. Sure it can be a bit sucky at times, but I learnt to take it all in one at a time. It also helps that most of my colleagues and superiors (i.e seniors and managers) are nice. Even the not so nice ones are tolerable which thankfully very few. Hopefully this current trend will continue in the future. Haha.. I felt as if I am bragging about my good fortunes!! Can't help it though!

Anyway, being an auditor also allows me to explore my adventurous side!! Finally gotten to know n drive around KL!! Only certain roads though. Jalan Ampang, Jalan Tun Razak and Jalan Sultan Ismail... I have yet to explore other roads but I am sure there would be plenty of opportunity in the future!!! You may ask why am I so happy to just get to know the roads in KL?? The obvious reason would be because I have the lousiest sense of direction ever and prior to audit life I have been relying on the mercy of public transportation as well as friends and families to get around KL which doesn't happen too often since I am content to go places nearer to home.

Oh, well. Gotta go. Those AWPs (Audit Working Papers) are waiting for me. No rest for the wicked.

Damn!!! November ends and I only managed some pathetic attempt at writing the novel for Nanowrimo. I lacked the discipline I think. Especially when work has been quite stressful lately with the long hours and heavier responsibility. Oh, well. It is for my continous development for the future so I am going to bear with it.

Talking about dissappointment, I bought a nice necklace today. Quite cheap. However when I get back home, I found that one of the clasp strings was broken. Sigh. If I go to a shop in order to fix it, it will still quite expensive. Sigh.

Friday, October 28, 2005


Heehee, I just signed up for the Nanowrimo thingy that is going to starts from 1st Nov. Basically it is where you try to write a 50,000 word of novel within one month. Not good at explaining it. Do try to go to its websites then. Found out about it from the local newspaper and I suddenly told myself, why not? It would be fun to see whether I am up to the challenge... I am thinking of a plot already. It might be a cross breed between romance and mystery with a bit of tragedy. That's if I decided to stick to the plot : ). Most probably I would put the output (if it is not too hideous to read) at this site.

On the other hand, some of you might find that their comments have been deleted. This would most probably only affect those who knew me personally. Nothing against you guys. It's just sometimes there are personal elements in your comments that I would rather not published for the public. Some of it is for security reasons and also due to my cautious nature to avoid possible future problems/backlashes such as stalking/litigations/slander/etc. Haha. I know some of you thinks i am too damn conservative but it pays to be safe than sorry. Usually I do not do this since most of the things are harmless. So do keep posting comments. I really appreciates the comments and enjoy reading them : ).

New Machine

Gotten a new laptop last week. A HP. A very big and heavy one that comes with a back pack. It is kinda nice to have a new machine since the keyboards is very nice to type with and the screen is pretty clear. The dark blue and black back pack is quite cool too with nice and comfortable straps. That’s the saving grace.

So what’s the problem? Its heavy!!... and the back pack does not contribute anything to the fashion statement. I wonder how could I ever bring a hand bag with a laptop?? For the moment, I am doing without a hand bag. I look like a schoolkid or at the very least a college girl : ).

What else is new with my life?? Nothing much. Except the nomadic life that I am leading as a result of my occupation. For the past two months, I have been to offices at Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, Jalan Tun Perak and Twin Towers. Soon I might go to Jalan Raja Chulan and hopefully Damasara Utama.

Haven't been keeping up with the local news. Been too busy with work that the only section of the newspapers that I read is the comics/cartoons and the headlines. Have no idea whatsoever with the current news with the exception of rising petroleum prices and dengue.

Speaking of dengue, a lecturer from my former university/faculty passed away due to dengue. The funny thing is he went to a medical centre near his home and the doctor there could not determine the sickness for about a week. When theyfound out he had dengue it was a bit too late even though he was admitted to ICU at the Kuala Lumpur General Hospital (HKL). Complications arise. He died just a couple of weeks ago.

I am so sad that such a nice person died. Especially when it could be prevented with early detection. I wonder what are the doctors are thinking when he could not determine the sickness. Why would he let a man suffer for a week without giving some diagnosis?? Doctors out there are invited to enlightened me. (Others too are welcome)

My friend went to a clinic bringing her toddler after the kid had a fever for several days and requested a blood test. Unfortunately the doctor refused and told her that babies do not get dengue!!! What kind of logic is that?? Some immunity that babies had?? Hmmm...

Anyway, something must be done for an early detection and preventive measures. The government should not wait until the body count increases to have the campaigns and foggings. It is a shame that some people are already starting to declare some cities or states as developed when this kind of diseases still exist and could be prevented.

Happy Birthday Malaysia!!

Happy Birthday Malaysia.....

Traffic jams, haze, snatch thieves, overpriced and lousy national cars (certain particular models), overdue for retirements politicians, declining educational standards and many more. Despite all these warts, I still love you Malaysia. Not just for the nasi lemak, teh tarik and 24 hours mamak stalls/restaurants. I am forever eternally grateful that the normal closing time for shops are 10 p.m or at least they stay open until 8 p.m when I discover to my horrors that shops in certain countries closed at 5.00 p.m!!!

I do love you because of the reasons above. However its your people that inspire pride in my heart.. To achieve so much in such a short time, truly something to be proud of. There is no need to mention of the achievements for they are in front of our eyes.

Nevertheless, the hard work does not stops here. There are enormous potentials to be mined within the heart of Malaysia.A great deal of improvements to ensure the continuity of your achievements.

I am grateful to those who before us fought for the independence. I would like to express my appreciation to our former prime minister Dr. Mahathir for setting the foundation for future Malaysian greatness...

At the moment, I plead with the younger generations not to waste or take for granted all the determination that our forefathers put into the building of the nation. Younger generations do not necessarily means the youth or the teens.... The adults that are leading this country and have taken the mantle of the nations former great leaders, there are big challenges that lay ahead. It is not enough to maintain the development. To do so meant the nation to be in a stagnant situation. Without growth, it is hard or impossible to maintain the greatness in Malaysia.

Happy Birthday Malaysia. Let's hope that your children knows what they are doing and you will continue to celebrate your birthdays with pride.

Today I am working in the city centre itself. In fact it is quite near to KLCC. As I walk towards the building where my colleagues had decided to go for lunch, it was quite difficult for me to breath properly. The haze is still there... Not to mention the normal heavy smoke that comes out of the vehicles.

Sigh... It is not a win win situation for us. You can't stay indoors too long since the air conditioner is not that good for you. You need the (at least) occasional fresh air. However when you go out, what do you get?... Anything but fresh air.

Sigh.. I truly hope that the situation would improve soon.

London Blast.

Sometimes I felt like screaming at the idiocy of the so called Muslims... Particularly those who bomb people, innocent people who had done nothing to them except by existing. These so called terrorist who claimed to fight for Islam are not doing Islam any good. In fact their actions has misrepresented Islam in unfavourable way.

Setting aside the bad images for Islam and how Muslims particularly those who are living in London and also internationally are going to be perceived and treated after this latest of terrorist attack, I am questioning the judgement, the knowledge of the religion and the faith of the so called liberators of Islam.

I am a Muslim. I am proud to be a Muslim. I don't claim I have a very strong faith.However I think I have a reasonably strong one. I try to follow the teachings of my religion as best as I could but I am not perfect. I am not a Muslim scholar but I do know certain things especially when it is the basic principle of the religion... Correct me if I am wrong but let's see the basic teachings of Islam.


Never did Islam equates itself with violence or senseless killings. Islam does stated that we need to defend our religion. However, bear in mind (for the Muslims who does have certain knowledge of Islam's history) even in the time of the prophet's that the prisoner of war receives fair treatment. They could ransomed themselves. If they could not afford it, they were offered their freedom when they taught certain numbers of the children on how to read and write. If these prisoners who just before that were at war with the Muslim fighters could be treated fairly, shouldn't we accorded a better treatment to the innocents... Men, women and children. All are innocents. Especially children.

I do admit that in certain parts of the world that the Muslims are being oppressed. Perhaps this helplessness could be attributed to the actions of these terrorist. However the ends certainly do not justify the means. If Muslims started to act like their oppressors, wouldn't that meant that we are lowering themselves to their level? Think about it. Jihad does not mean dying for Islam. It meant to fight for Islam. Studying and gaining knowledge are considered Jihad too. Peaceful negotiations is part of Jihad. Anything for the betterment of Islam is Jihad.

Therefore does the act of terrorism is Jihad? Does it brings any benefits to Islam?
Not only does it violates the basic priciple of the religion but it only makes Islam being perceives negatively.

I certainly hope the budding terrorist among the Muslim youth wherever they are try to understand the religion better before blindly follows the dictates of others who merely manipulates and twisted the religion for their own purposes.....

My heart goes out to the London Blast's victims and the people that they leave behind. I know condemnation of the act is not enough. We have to start to educate the Muslims to be aware that this act is not the way to go...
