Are Laptops Better than Cat Beds? Your Cat Thinks So

This one’s mine. Said every cat ever. Are you inspired to complete your thesis? Planning to finish writing that long-awaited novel? Or it’s that infernal presentation that your boss has been harping about? Whatever the reason, you brew yourself a hot cup of coffee and fire up the laptop. You’re about to do some serious…

“Guest” Who’s Here!

In case you’re wondering, I’m not talking about some paranormal being that is sharing my home with me. I was referring to an actual human visitor or guest whom you’ve picked up from the arrival hall of your local airport. It could be a friend whom you have not seen in many years or it…

How Do You Know When Enough Is Enough?

I’ve been on a downward spiral in recent weeks. I blame it on the job. Granted, it’s quite a tough job, demanding even on the performance of my mental and physical health. But as everyone says, there is no such thing as an easy job. Everywhere you go, every job you do, there will always…

Can We Be Reprogrammed Not To Feel?

I don’t know about you guys but sometimes I feel as if I could do with a reboot. You know how hard you slog at your job to the point of exhaustion and collapse. Your brain is tired from all that thinking and squeezing. And you just want to jumpstart your brain with the very…

Should Parents Bring Their Children to the Cinema?

This is something that’s been on my mind every time I watch a movie at the cinema. Caution is necessary —> it might get a little controversial. Depends on how you look at it, and whose side you’re on, I guess. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Now, here’s my topic for today: Should children…

Are You A Regular Customer?

Do you often eat at the same place? Or would you prefer to rotate your dining destinations? If you’re a regular customer at some eatery or diner, how often are you actually there? Until you reach a point where the restaurant service staff remembers you? Whether it is for your complicated order or that one…

Happy National Cat Day!

The only downside to celebrating these National and International Something or Other Days is that Malaysia is always a day ahead of the United States, so whatever National or International Celebrated Day will always and only be known about the following day. The only way to overcome this is to constantly check the calendar on…

Football Update: Three-Match Bans.

Is this a good time to say ‘case closed’? Will this be the end of the face-off or is it just the beginning? Here’s what transpired over the past three days and the result is as such. What I think of the whole fiasco is at the end of my post. UK Football Association: “Chelsea’s…

A Domino Effect.

Look, even in the licensed photo that I dug out from Google Images shows the same referee Mike Dean booking Arsenal’s Tomas Rosicky for a foul during a match against Chelsea in December 2013. It is not a coincidence that Dean is somewhat biased towards the Gunners and probably has a thing for Chelsea. I…

EPL 2015: Chelsea vs. Arsenal.

It was a fiery affair for Arsenal during the match against Chelsea, and at this moment, it depends on how you see it and which side you’re on. I may be a true Arsenal fan, but I have my opinions on how things should have turned out. And definitely for the better. Everything about the…

Growing Up Pains.

Here’s yet another short blog post dedicated to my cat, Loki. We have no idea what breed he is since he was a rescued kitty. Probably a mix breed considering that his mother was a stray cat herself. We have no idea what happened to his brothers and sisters either. Hopefully they were rescued and…

Exit: Stage Fright.

I was never a fan of performing on-stage, not even when I used to play the piano and every year end, there would be an exam that requires playing on stage in front of an audience. Nope, nope, nope. I’d rather be backstage and in charge of props and resources than to smile and wave…

An Explosive Weekend.

This weekend marks the next National Day (Hari Merdeka in Malay) for Malaysia as we go into another period of celebrations and festivities. Coming in second this weekend also marks the fourth Bersih 4.0 rally for the locals as we fight for the rights to have clean and unbiased elections. Obviously that’s not going to…

Cat Cuddle Sessions.

It has always been a trend I noticed with my cat. Once he’s out of his room, he would dash from one end of the condo to the other end as if being chased. He enjoys sneaking up to our washing machine to investigate the strange noises coming from it. Or he would try to…

When I Read…

When I read, I find my surrounding falling away and fading, leaving me in a perfect world of fantasy. When I read, I find myself shrinking and disappearing, before slowly reappearing in the world of my book. Because when I read, the world is just better. Does that happen to you? I find myself pulling…

Road Hogs.

Manners aside, that is the term I’d use on inconsiderate drivers who hog the fast lane. Why does one bother cutting into the fast lane if the rest of the cars are far away ahead of you and the remaining cars behind you are trying to get past you? Patrick Stewart’s expression and gesture has…

Good Cop, Bad Cop.

Think of your manager as a figure of authority whose responsibility is to maintain harmony within the department or team, ensure that tasks are undertaken and completed, and provide a certain amount of protection for the employees. If you were a manager, you’d want your employees to work well with one another and do their…

My Husband: The Kleptomanic

Walk into any clinic, post office, or government office and you will find a pen provided for the convenience of their patients or customers. These pens are usually attached to a mass of rubber bands tied at each end to form a long thread to secure the pens to a clipboard or a holder which…
