It is interesting. Very interesting indeed. An observation that is of people’s behaviour. Although the separation between right from wrong is distance with a wide grey area this is still in my humblest of opinion is hypocrisy.
What I mean is this. My observation started with a little known incident called the Great Tohoku Earthquake or also known as that big huge ass earthquake/tsunami that devastated Japan’s east coast. After that incident many people around the world and especially in my home country rallied to their aid. Collecting food, monetary aid, blankets and the like. I’m not saying its a bad thing. It’s a very good thing to do to help others and I highly encourage it. But then why the fuss? Read on.

Its now the new year. Chinese New Year to be precised and its not looking very good for me. Lack of festivities aside, I’m down in the dumps again. ‘Emo’ as I usually calls it. I quit my second job just two days before the first day of the Chinese New Year celebrations. The first job wasn’t a problem and the people was nice but it wasn’t what I wanted to do. The second one…well…due to my decision to try it out it has really affected not only me but also my relationship to those around me. Again, I got misunderstood, not just by friends but by family as well.
I was told of nonsense by my boss and yes I relayed what was said to me to those I spoke to. Although many times I have said that I do NOT care what he said and that I’m only trying to take the opportunity to use his resources to train the people I bring in, I keep getting misunderstood as “you felt for his tricks and gimmick”. Regardless, as much hurt and pain I’m reeling from this treatment I’m getting its nothing compared to the words of your love ones condemning you to shame.
One might ask me questions on my bad decisions and give suggestions to stay on and then give degrading statements that I’m useless and couldn’t hold a job but let me ask this:
“Are you happy? With your current (first) job?” Yes?
“Do you like the environment you’re in?” Yes?
“Do you have great colleagues and an understanding and cooperative boss?” Yes?
If its yes the you have not been in my shoes. I’m looking for what you have right now. It might not be 100% the same that is true but I’m looking for the right environment and that’s why I change. The current company I am in is dying to a point where it cannot sustain itself due to mismanagement and very bad planning. I did not see this during most of the first month I was there but only during the second month and I then quit with the rest of the company at the end of my second month there.
Indeed, I am not perfect and I will make mistakes and continue to make mistakes in my life but it doesn’t mean one doesn’t learn from experience and move on. That is the part and parcel of becoming human. Show me one human being that has never made a mistake before and I’ll show you a portrait of Da Vinci painted by Mona Lisa herself.
Went to Seremban this year to visit my girlfriend’s family for the Chinese New Year. Worst decision ever. They hated me. Well hate is a harsh word so I guess “disagree with her choice” is the more appropriate one to use. Not to say I didn’t expect what will happen though. Don’t really blame them too. If I dated myself I’ll disagree too.
Anyways, I’m just gonna take things easy for the rest of the month and take my time finding another job opportunity. It hurts but I guess I should not be bothered so much about this. People will always say stuff about you after they met you only once(or twice). First impression as they say is important but as I always say…in life…”never judge a book by its cover” and “actions are better than words”.
Happy Lunar New Year to you and your family and may prosperity shine upon you this new year.

It’s a bit late but I guess it’ll have to do. The BigBadWolf booksale was held recently and this year it changed location from the usual Amcorp Mall to some really hard to access shopping mall in Sri Kembangan called South City Plaza. Gotten some really hard to find books for a price to kill for. Burn a small hole in my pocket but it was really so damn worth every cent. RM8 a book mate. Any cheaper and I’ll faint. Ok, not really but I’m go screaming like a girl at a Rain concert. As usual, the crowd was as aggressive as Zerglings rushing onto a Terran supply base. Luckily, when I was arrived on the evening of the second day the crowd was miraculously subsided. Must had been dinner time kua.
I just really hope that I would have more than enough cash for next year’s haul. I just hope I’ll be able to finish reading all this by that time though.

Seriously, I’ve heard this for a long time of various Yaoi doujins of Naruto characters but I could not believe my eyes when I saw the torrent for a KakashiXNaruto doujin floating on Tokyotosho. Translated. IN FREAKING ENGLISH!!! To be honest, I just don’t care about yaoi manga but seeing is believing I guess.
I just don’t get seeing 2 (apparently gay) guys doing it as fun.
Screw this shit. /runs

As I’m sitting here in the hotel lobby at the Marriot Washington DC trying to savor what is left of my time here in the United Stated, it means that the SUSI program is coming to an end. So far, I’ve seen small towns to big buildings in the cities. I’ve experience a taste of what some may call as the the American dream and I have tasted the food. It has been an amazing experience to say the least but other than the material things, I believe that the most important (which will also make me sad the most) is the people. I’m so gonna miss everyone.
What makes this experience here in the United States so special is the locals and I believe that in traveling it is the local people that will make the trip a more fulfilling one. Those that I have met should it be either our graduate mentors, our lecturers, our host family or even the local towns people, they have really gave me the opportunity to learn so much about them.
After all that is said and done, I have only one conclusion and it is that the American people are one of the nicest, most honest and strong people I have ever met.
Thank you Dr.Foster, Dr.Jackson, Mrs. Foster, Mrs. Jackson, Drew, Cary, Onur, Joel, Jennifer, Dr.Brown, Emily, Selin, the Wagners and to all those who had work so ahrd to made our experience an unforgettable one.
To the people of the United States, I say this to you for I shall return…one day.
