Freaked Out Friday: Burst Pipes and Busted Lights

Have you ever thought how perfect some of your mornings can be? You wake up feeling refreshed after a good night’s rest. You see the sky looking a little gloomy and realised, “Oh, it rained last night.” Damn, it could have been the ideal weather for a sleep-in but it’s fine. You get to have…

A Back-Breaking, Neck-Aching Process

I’m pretty sure everyone would have heard of the coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic by now. Many countries have initiated a lockdown and people are instructed to stay at home unless there is an emergency. It took Malaysia a long time before initiating the lockdown status, not before our total number of cases went into the…

Dial ‘A’ For Anxiety.

The letter ‘A’ symbolises a good many things in my life; the good being a grade that I’ve always looked forward to receiving in my examinations to the bad which I’m going to talk about today. I’ve never been a grade A student, though, my grades have always been enough to get me through my…

As the offices are only opened on weekdays, everyone will be there to pay their bills, persuade an officer to cancel a service because they don’t want it anymore, or demand for a refund for a bill that was not…

#PRAYFORPARIS

I woke up this morning to some really terrible news. That France had been on the receiving end of several deadly attacks. Was it the work of terrorists? I have yet to find out. So far I’ve read, 43 were killed with dozens injured and the French police are in the midst of their investigation…

Don’t Tweet About It.

There recently have been cases of individuals taking selfies in rather dangerous locations and many have lost their lives while trying to have their few seconds of fame. Here are a couple of recent headlines that you should heed before taking a high-risk selfie: Last year (2014), a Russian teenager plunged 30ft to her death…
