Oh, no! Looks like I am no different with the girls who are bargaining for their new clothes whenever there is 70% rebate! >~< Well, here they are,



I was loitering around Popular Palm Square, browsing for new books. While I was turning the pages of some non-fiction, my eyes spotted the corner where the discount books (It is easy to tell as Popular does have its own way to display them, a typical one) were placed.
Initially, I wasn’t hoping to get any interesting books as for my acknowledgement, the books are usually pop-culture stuff but not this two.
Commentaries on Living: Series I by Jiddu Krishnamutri; &
The True Believer: Thoughts on the nature of Mass Movement by Eric Hoffer.
\(^∇^)/
Both of them are translated version (Mandarin) as English version may cost a lot for me…sigh…Again, I committed another unplanned expenditure……sigh……I have to control myself.

The next book on my wish-list, The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How Good People Turn Evil by Philip Zimba…

Happy Chinese New Year?

Image
Well, well, how is your Chinese New Year celebration going? Fun? Good? Gluttony? Satisfied Ang Pow?
Don’t expect something from me, as I am not going home for this festival, again…(since 3 years back…) Why? Expensive air ticket, worthless expenditure, boring….Ops, did I mention something wrong?!
However, that does not mean that I have nothing beginning from the preparation of Chinese New Year until now, the second night of Lunar New Year. OK, I didn’t bargain on any new clothes, accessory, shoes nor hairstyle. Instead I had bought this, Gillettle March 3 Turbo (old model tri-blades shaver/razor and it is RED, for CNY?).


Had a steamboat reunion dinner with Daniel’s family (thanks Daniel, Mr. & Mrs. Koh), steamboat dinner with Chung Ling gang,

…and received the first and second Ang Pow from Adam and Mrs. Koh (thanks to both of them).

Finally, invitations to attend tomorrow gathering at Gurney Plaza, Penang, from chili and Sean. Apparently I …

World Leprosy Day

Image
Today is Chinese New Year Eve as we all Chinese knows, but do you know that today is marked as World Leprosy Day as well?
Well, I do not mean to spoil your mood in celebrating this festive seasons. However, while you enjoying your delicious reunion dinner, please think of those who are suffering all around the world.
Here are some brief descriptions about leprosy from one of the source:
“The first Historic mention of Leprosy in India dates back to as early as 600 B.C., where it is denoted by a Sanskrit term ‘Kushtha’, literally meaning ‘eating away’. Reports of presence of leprosy can also be found in the ancient writings from Japan (10th century B.C) and Egypt (16th century B.C.). Ancient writers have put across several theories regarding the origin and spread of leprosy such as infection of the Nile River, unhygienic food habits of the people and so on. 
People suffering from Leprosy had to face criticism and were subjected to stringent treatments even in the olden times. They were …

Abandoned blog?

My last blog entry was about 2 months ago…Gosh, it seems that my laziness is dominating me since my semester break began…
But not anymore, the holidays are off, I have to get back to my job and start to write again. A psychologist should maintain writing as a habit. (thanks Ben for reminding me…) Well, I really have to be serious with this.
With this, I will like to start off bythe “small small gathering” organized by Krystle Yap, one of my primary school '”brother” at Mizi’s Bistro, New World Park, 21st of December 2008, around 1930 hours. It was one of my primary school reunion dinner.

The event was suppose to start at 1930 hours, but I knew that there must be a reason why Krystle post that particular time on Facebook. Before I departed from home, I received the call from her and Natalie about the bad road condition which might cause them to late…(Sorry girls, I don’t mean to criticize…) That’s why the invitation cards in Penang always contain the words “7.30 p.m.” ?
Anyway, they …
