Random Conversations

Monday morning; mobile rang at 9am, Jane was asleep.

Dad: How come you are not at work today?
Me: Because I am sick, been sick since last Thursday.
Dad: What happened?
Me: Fever keeps coming back once the Panadol effect is gone. Going to the doctor later.
Dad: Ask him to do a blood test. It may be a symptom of a series illness like leukaemia…
Dad: I am serious, usually non-stop fever is a symptom of cancer or leukaemia
Me: If you are planning to make me feel better, I am sorry, but you have failed totally! I want to sleep, don’t disturb me!

Hang up!

Me: I saw a new pair of boots that I really like!
Matt: You are not a Centipede
Me: …………….

Decision Decision

Been thinking of moving out lately; thinking if I should buy a house or rent a place.

I can probably afford to buy a cheap house ranging 250-300k but then I will lose the current quality of life because I will be smashed by mortgage. So I think renting will be a better choice, but the rental market is also ridiculous at the moment. I do not want to live with other people so I will be renting a place by myself that will probably cost me $600 - $800 a month. I don’t think it is worthwhile to pay such rental when a few more hundreds will be the amount of mortgage I am paying if I buy a house. So….. decision decision!!!!!!!

Or shall I just stick to the current place? Sigh, but I really want to change environment.

I want to get a place with a back yard so I can keep a dog to accompany me especially when baby is at work.

A guy from work committed suicide last Friday, the Friday before Mother’s Day. He was 19 and he hung himself. I don’t know him personally as he was from another department. Apparently he killed himself because he couldn’t get over his gf’s death (his gf killed herself 3 months ago). Sigh, so sad…….. only 19 years old and decided to take his own life.

Then in Sarawak, a 11 year old also committed suicide because he/she was very very poor and always got teased by his/her teach at school for using broken pencils and eating porridge with Kangkung everyday. Can you believe even the teacher teased him about that!? It must be a terrible experience to make an 11 year old to commit suicide.

I used to worked with children for 2 years before I came to Perth, and I have never thought of (for even a split second) hurting my students’ feelings. I don’t think I could ever do it. That bloody teacher should be prosecuted……

2007 Aussie Day Party at Yen's Place

Bottom's up!

Pictures in My Phone - Part 2

View from my hotel when I was in Melbourne.
N.B. my Melbourne trip was a disaster, the flight to Melb was delayed for 7 hours. I didn't get to the hotel till 1:15am, went to bed at 2:15am, got to the office at 9am. So no, I didn't go anywhere after work coz I was exhausted and went to sleep at 7pm :S

Baby said he is not sure what durian is, he merely remember seeing it once. So I took a picture of them when I saw them in Woolworths. I got quite alot of attention by doing that. ><

A little fungus grew besides my house door. It was blooming after just one night of rain. Looked pretty cool, can't really see clearly in the picture though.

One of my exs talked to me on MSN the other day and told me that he is married now and has a daughter. We talked about other things of course and I realized that he hasn’t changed a bit, and I told him that. He said it is good that he hasn’t changed, I told him it is terrible that he hasn’t changed, and he is still so rude and arrogant.

Maybe I should remind him that he isn’t that great, being smashed by gambling debt and had to run away to US to be illegal immigrant?

Then another friend came boasting about her bf’s new job and his new pay while I just kept quiet and said congratulation. Her bf’s new income is equivalent to mine but I didn’t tell her that cause I don’t see the point of doing that.

Then I told Matt about it, he said I should have told her how much Matt’s earning to shut her up; I just told Matt that’s not my style. I am over the “boast what I have” age, if one thinks one is great, why not?
