Christmas Gift Idea

My sister was telling about the music room that her husband is building, and how he is looking for equipment to fill it with.

And from one of the things she said, I suddenly remembered that I have to get two Christmas gifts for them. One for him and one for her.

I think that it is the right time to get the Line 6 AMPLIFi FX100 for him since it's something that he could use fully and enjoy, in his new music room.

But when it comes to thinking about a gift for my sister, it is going to be difficult. As they always say, it's easier to get a gift for a man than a woman. Isn’t that true?

Car Cannot Start

And this is not the first instance already. Just that today being a very busy day for me, and since it is Sunday, no mechanic is working! 

Argh... I guess I have to take the taxi around because I have to be in two places at different times of the day and that means four trips to and from my home. 

How much will that cost me in taxi fare? Maybe RM30. :( 

Boohoo.., I can't fill up petrol today, which also means cannot gain the 5% rebate on credit card swipes on weekends.

Music Editing Made Easier

I was visiting my friend at his music studio just last week. It was an impromptu visit and I since I was already in the area, I took the chance that he would have a bit of time to spare me in between his work. 

Well, turned up he was in a bit of a rush but didn't mind me hanging around, looking over his shoulder and seeing what he does for a living. 

He was telling me about this melodyne music editor that he is currently using to arrange the music that he has recorded, lamenting that if only he found out about it sooner! 

Apparently, Melodyne can compose and arrange, reshape and alienate, mix and remix, correct and optimise, and more. Sounds like a musical genius!

Mentally Tired

This week had really been tough on me mentally. I have written so many lengthy articles, juggling so many different subjects that sometimes, I think I am going crazy. Even though I don't drink liquor, I feel as though I want to make myself drunk. Yes, that's how I am feeling right now. 

This is certainly not the way to live. Where is the meaning? I am a very simple person who just wants to sit quietly in a park with my prince, and enjoy the day as it goes by. 

I am not someone who asks for a lot in life. Simple things make me happy and my stress threshold is low. At night, I just want to be cuddled in bed, watching TV. And I am not talking about sex, OK!

Year-End Party Time

I just returned from a tour with a group of new friends who came from Medan, Indonesia. 

As soon as I arrived home, my boss told me that I have a new mission, and that is to organise a year-end party for the company. I know that it's my turn this year but argh, has it been a year already? How time flies! 

I am desperately in need of an amplifier but have no idea which I should get, or even what model. What about the price? If you have any suggestions, let me know, as I need to buy now. I don't have much time to ponder on it because I have another trip coming up and I don't think I have free time to sit around to think about the party. 

I also have to remember to look for food and lucky draw prizes!

Another Impending Trip

It seems as though every time I return from a trip, I would be totally overwhelmed with work, work and more work. It's tough juggling few jobs at the same time but this is life for me... for the time being. 

Now that I have returned from Negeri Sembilan, and forced to skip a trip to Melaka between then and now, I am heading to the East Coast later this week. 

Well, I haven't got confirmation yet because it's a long weekend and normal people would only start working on Tuesday. I'm not so normal, so I work throughout the weekend. 

Anyway, I will know my schedule by 8th October. That's still quite a few days to go.

Off To Negeri Sembilan

Of all the states in Malaysia that I have visited, Negeri Sembilan is one that I had only passed through. I have not spent more than a few hours there but this time, I have the opportunity to spend four days there. Ho yeah! 

I used to have a friend in Seremban and I had thought of taking the ETS from Ipoh to Seremban (when it was still in service) to visit him but then he was suffering from cancer and his health deteriorated very quickly. And then he passed away, and I didn't make an excuse to have a holiday there anymore. 

Anyway, years have passed and I am healed, I guess, since I am looking forward to visit Negeri Sembilan. With this trip, I am ticking yet another state off the handful of Malaysian states that I have yet to visit. And by visit, I mean to spend at leas\t a few days there.
