cendol mania

I finally get to slurp my favorite cendol after missing it for a few days. Ahh… so refreshing. So good…

Cendols are good for health. They contain a lot of anti-oxidants, with lots of fibres, plenty of protein and fortified with calcium. They have pottasium too, rich with vitamins and irons …. and they help our body to absorb more minerals than anything else.

Long term consumption are known to prevent diabetes, lowers the risk of cancer & builds up your body resistance against viral infections — such as VDs, SARs, Hep A/B’s …etc. Makes your eyes look fresh… develop new brain cells and improve the memories, especially for older people. They are also known to be able to cure high blood pressure … appendicitis … tooth plaques … diarrheas …mental disorders … impotence … and in some cases even prevent death

So, people, what are you fucking waiting for?

caught !

Was approached by the big boss (no no .. not Rob … this is Rob’s boss) caught on to me while I was about to do some presentation in a meeting,

BigBoss : “Hey mike! when are u going to attend the departmental team building? You’ve been working here for so many years but I haven’t seen you before in any of our teambuilding before… ”

Me : “Errm … ok … I’ll make it on February…”

BigBoss : “Which year? Trying to trick me again eh?”

Me : “Alright boss … the next one…”

BigBoss : “No… you are to organize one. This is your next assignment. I bet you don’t even know what the word ‘TEAM’ stands for…”

Me : “TEAM stands for Together Everyone Asks Money… from you… boss… heheh…”

The whole meeting room then laughed at BigBoss ….

BigBoss : “Hey!”

Me : “Calm down boss … I’m just kidding. I’ll do it. You have my word.”

I’m thinking of using the teambuilding budget to organize a kick ass buffet. I bet that’ll be way more fun than running around like overgrown dorks!

almost forever…

Had an early day & brought my dad to the hospital for his medical checkup. Again… had to endure the long queue – waited from 9am – 3pm.

No serious alerts from the doctor this time – except the heads up about dad’s liver. Basically, his liver isn’t any more useful than a piece of rock now.

Well… what can I complain. My dad partied too much during his macho days & it’s time for his liver to quit. He’s paying the hefty price now. All I can do now is to get him to the doc as and when necessary…

His medication + fees cost me another 300 over bucks this time. I’m beginning to feel the pain. The doctors really make a lot of money … 2nd highest in my list of top wage suckers:
1) pub owners (yeah … parties…)
2) doctors (pub owners corrupt the livers, docs fix livers)
3) banks (my credit card debts from parties …)
4) lawyers (the fucking mortgage)

Got home at 4 & just hung around the couch pondering about money… Money is definitely mankind’s worst invention …

life on the edge

fine saturday.
whoa … last night (after blogging) I got terrorized by a big cucuracha. Wasted almost a quarter can of insecticide on that bug. I’ve been trying to figure out if there is any way for me to repel these scums from visiting me at home. Is there even such a thing? Roach repellant. Hmmm, have to find out.

Had roti canai for breakfast at Raju Cafe. It was sooooo gooooood, that I forgot my own name right there.

Spent most of my afternoon trying out a new game — Postal 2. A very sick game. It is a game with fuckloads of violence & gore — you actually get to play some lunatic dude running around the neighborhood killing everyone you don’t like. I think this will be good for people who needs a little bit of ‘release’ from stress suffered at their workplace. Well … I sort of had mine this afternoon & it ended up being released there — I know this isn’t good for me.

Wait a minute… it’s Saturday night… what the fuck am I doing here? I should be hanging out with my friends instead of blogging here!! Aww … it has been 3 weeks since I last clubbed. It’s very unhealthy to stay at home on Saturday nights. I hope the BODs can make it next week – they should have settled their problems by then.

it’s friday …

Not a very good day for me (nooo … not because of the rain). Had an audit at work today & just found out that my ex-senior left me tonnes of shit to clear up. Lots of unaccounted parts not declared… countless of lab procedures not updated. Had to clear up heaps of his illegal work, what great ethics people have nowadays, damn it.

Anyway, I almost finished clearing all of his shits but not without plenty of cursing. I hope he is getting plenty of SARs in his new found job at China.

Oh, yeah … as if my day wasn’t bad enough — my favorite cendol stall was closed today … ugghh…

Rotten boss still haven’t submitted my award. From now on I’m gonna call him Rob Zombie – that’s because he is as trashy as Rob’s song. I’m not sure what is wrong with him, but I really hate this undead boss of mine.

I sometimes feel that I complain too much. Like I was born only to complain. But I know if I don’t do that… I’m gonna be as “undead” as Rob (my boss, remember?) — fuck.
