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.

Neck Ache

I just returned from a short trip within my own state. Although some people think that it's strange that I would go on trips that take me to familiar places, I still enjoy the opportunity to see things from another aspect. 

On the second day, I woke up with a nagging ache on one side of my neck. My friend told me that it could be because of the air-conditioning in our hotel room, which kept getting cooler and cooler as the night wore on.

She told me that she has this chilipad mattress pad at cityofsleep.com which allows her to control the temperature of her bed, without having to heat up or cool down the entire house, or even just the room. 

With the temperature maintained through the night, one can expect a good night's sleep. And that's what I am looking forward to, after I getting myself a ChiliPad mattress pad.

My New Phone: Xiaomi Redmi Note

After stressing over a phone that shuts off by itself, and couldn't get turned back on unless I take out the battery, and this for a year, I finally got myself a new phone and as the title says, it's the Chinese brand, Xiaomi's Redmi Note.

I initially got the equally budget-friendly Huawei Honor 3C but my dad wanted it after seeing how nice it was, but then I decided not to buy two units of the same model, and so, opted for Xiaomi Redmi Note instead. 

Obviously, this isn't my dream phone but so far, I have no complaints regarding its hardware specification, except that i wonder how long it will last.

Picking Up An Instrument

Sometimes, I feel like I want to further myself, to pick up a new skill, to learn something different. Perhaps another language, swimming, cycling, or even a musical instrument. I was brought up in a no-frills household, where I never had the opportunity to do more than required at school. 

Now that I have the extra cash, I wonder if I have the time or discipline. Of course, the first step I took was to Sign up online at MusiciansFriend.com, and hopefully, it would spur my passion to learn something different. 

But knowing me, I will only pay attention for the first few lessons and then my passion for it dies off. However, I think I would stick to it if I have a companion to join me in my quest for a new skill. Any takers?

Sick For 4 Weeks

After returning from Holland for two weeks, I fell ill. Well, if I have to be ill, at least it wasn't when I was travelling, I guess!

And so, I had the package of fever, cough and sore throat. Until today, I am still coughing, even after seeing two doctors three times, including a specialist. 

Coughing needs time to shake off but my mom is so impatient and doesn't allow me time to get well. She kept bugging me to see the doctor. Bah... waste my money only! 

Anyway, am on the road to recovery now, although I still have slight cough and phlegm.
