My beloved grandpa

It is now 0034 hours. I cant sleep. I cant stop my tears from flowing. The month of july 2010 is an extremely depressing one for me. 6th of July 2010. My grandpa passed away. I gotta admit he's not the bestest coolest grandpa in the world but to me he's good enough. I used to complain that he grumbles too much and is too old fashioned. I clearly remember the days when we would all go back to my hometown at Tangkak during school holidays. We would all have to sleep early in order for us to wake up early and follow him to his tai chi classes. He would drive like he's the king of the road, stopping whenever and where ever he likes. He would make us select our own packet drinks left over from Chinese New Year then bring it to KFC. No soft drink only packet drinks from home. I remember him squatting at his garden removing every weed that comes in sight and attending to his flowers. I miss how he talks about his young days telling us how hardworking n poor he was and complaining how lazy we are and what good lives we have. I miss how he would grumble at us to fold our blankets when we wake up. I miss his smell of Hazeline. One day he fell sick. He could not walk and always told us he needs to pump oil into his knee so he don't feel painful. Then after a long period of pain he gives in to surgery. Due to age he was only given a half body anaesthetic so he was awake throughout the surgery. I could still recall him telling me he felt painful during the surgery. Not too long ago he was diagnosed with cancer. He was sent for chemotheraphy. The doc says he'll be fine. The sight of him kills me inside. He was a stubborn man. He listens to no one but himself. Once he woke up and wandered out on his own in the middle of the nite. He was too weak for this. He fell and knocked his head. He bleed profusely and was sent for stiches. It was Chinese New Year of 2010. He seemed to recover but soon he had difficulty peeing. He did not pee for 2 weeks and voiced out after his tummy was so bloated. Check ups show he has a growth at his bladder. He needs to use a tube to pee. He's a man of big ego and refuse the tubes initially but gave in. Not long after his mouth had some growth. The cancer came back. He's getting weaker by the day. He consumes only liquid food resulting him in becoming weaker. It went on for a few months. Every on and off he would press the bell demanding attention especially attention from my dad. At times when dad is not around he will presd on the bell like it was some toy until dad attends to him. Every now and then he would talk about his pain and says he's better off dead. Time went by and the bells continue ringing. At times it became annoying because he just wouldn't listen. Then the day came. It was a gloomy monday. I didn't feel like talking that day. I stayed back after work talking with a colleague on how my dad loved and how we learn. I went home had dinner showered and just went to lie on the bed. I just wanted to be alone. At 2 plus in the morning i heard my dad talking to my sister and i knew. Grandpa had left us. I'm relieved he no longer need to suffer. I told myself not to be upset because grandpa is now at a better place. He was sent back to Tangkak. The undertakers came. Most of my uncles and aunties were there. My dad was to help my grandpa cleanse his body and the siblings and grandchildren to assist in dressing up. He looked so thin. He had only bones and skin. I could not hold my tears seeing him in this state. This is not the man from my childhood memories. Every night i want to sit by his new home to keep him company. I would look at him and tell him everything is fine now and he had recovered. On the day the coffin was supposed to be sealed, the undertakers told us to view for 1 last time. I could not hold my tears. Nobody could. He was a father and a grandfather to all of us. We love him dearly. He will forever be in our hearts. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

An upgrade of grade in life.

Just got back from a trip to Krabi with some friends. The trip was awesome due to great company and some memorable event.

It was a great surprise and I really did not expect it to happen. Yeap you guessed right. He popped the question. I was nervous thus acted silly. But I was really happy for these people planned for this even before the trip. They even helped choose the ring. Was very touched by the mural they did on the sand. It somehow almost made me cry.

I was extremely touched by what they did. Hope plans for marriage will soon come -Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone-

Pinkie Cloth on My Hair

Today boss is not around, so I got all the time in the world to laze in the office.But I'm a hardworking staff and I always try my best to do my best in everything. (I just love myself..LOL). So while going into my lazy mood i suddenly thought I'll play around with my laptop webcam. And also my newly bought i dunno wat it's called so I'll just call it "Hair Holder".

See before I use the hair holder my hair is like falling all over my face (I know i know...i din't apply make-up since no appointments wat..hehe)

See!! After i put the cloth like material onto my hair it just clings on to the hair and the hair doesn't fall all over my face anymore~Great isn't it... ( colleagues were like "EH Apple..wat's that pinkie cloth doing on your hair??"

Anyway, now I'm walking all over office with my new pinkie cloth attached..LOL

Senjyu Sushi..

Today Vince and me decided to head off for a day out at the cinema since it has been some time we were last at the cinema (No..not so long also. Our last movie was er..Sniper by Edison Chen..Haha..Lots of excuses we have). So after a few days of being not able to get hold of tickets for "Angel & Demons" today was our lucky day. We manage to grab 2 seats for the 3.20pm show at Sunway Pyramid. As we arrived at Sunway Pyramid during noon, the place was already packed and finding a parking is damn bloody hard even the valet parkings are fully occupied. No luck so just go scouting for a parking. All of a sudden, "Hubby..the light there is green..". So being the rempit kaki he rempit all the way to the parking only to hear me cursing. No you guys guessed wrong. The parking space was not taken. Light was still green. But there's a bloody car parked so bloody inside the front of the car's bout to kiss the wall in front of it thus causing the light to remain green. Damn!! Can't help cursing~~
But god does love me and just as we were bout to scount somewhere else we heard the beloved "beep beep" sound. The sound of someone unlocking the car. Turn the right. YEAH!! someone's leaving. Being the gan chiong aunty type i quickly say "Lou gong..faster..signal signal". Haha. Yeah~~ Got parking. When we arrived at the retail podium it was so crowded. What to do..weekend ma... So as usual we think "So what to eat??". Again being the aunty I suggested "Eh..I got Senjyu Sushi voucher..we go there la. Can save money also." Then we headed there. Hoho. 2nd time there. I like it there. It's got a nice enviroment.
The food is nice also. We decided to just grab the items from the convenyor belt. Ordered handrolls and also a Kimchi Beef noodle for Vince (last time we tried the salmon don..didn't like it that much). I opted for the soft shell crab handroll while Rempit Kaki went for the salmon & salmon roe..The soft shell crab was great. The funny thing is the shop was rupervisor served us our handrolls. He must have noticed I was snapping every single thing before looking into them as if inspecting for traces of poison so he turned back to our table and told me "I think it's better you eat the soft shell crab handroll first before it gets cold, cos when it's cold it's not nice. I feel it's geli. I tried it before. You eat the handroll first." So i thanked him for his advise and started attacking my handroll. It was really crunchy. Liked it to every bit. Yummy~~I almost wanted another one until Vince looked at me with me "HOW TO KURUS LIKE TAT"look. Oo..warning. So I hold back. Haha. Thank you lou gong. Hahahahah..They have this other soft shell crab thingy which was nice..even had crab roe in it..Slurps~~ Kimchi beed noodle was great also. The next time I go there I wanna try the Beef Sukiyaki. Looks nice. Hehe.
Soft Shell Crab Handroll

Salmon & Salmon Roe Handroll

Don't know what it's called but has got fried soft shell crab & crab roe. (Quite costly though. RM10.00 for 2 biji. Good thing Rempit Kaki can't bring himself to eat soft shell crab due to the way they were breed so I had it all for myself. It's good I told him the story of how they cut off all the crabs legs forcing them to change their skin thus becoming all soft..)

Don't know what is this. But I think it's something similar to California Maki but replaced the Ebiko with egg crepe and crab stick with salmon .

Kimchi Beef Soba (Suppose to be Udon. But I didn't like Udon so tricked Vince into changing to soba)

Quite a number of plates. Food was good. But lil pricy though..but still worth it.
After discount, the total bill came to bout RM50+. Still okie le.Hehe. Cos no need me to pay ma. Hehe. Thanks for lunch ya lou gong. Hehe.

Almost sneaked off with this while paying. Haha. No le..Just think it's cute.

Thank You Mr Postman..

One fine morning, while Vince was at work suddenly there was someone at the office door honking "BEEP BEEP~~" (motorcycle horn). Vince went to peep.."'s Mr Postman" so unlock the door go out see what Mr Postman wanted. Mr Postman asked "En. Vince ada tak? Ada surat berdaftar kasi dia" Vince replied "Oh..Saya Vince.." while looking at the white envelope Mr Postman held in his hand and keeping his own fingers crossed. After going through the necessary procedures, Mr Postman passed the envelope to Vince. Haha. Guess what is it?? Without further delay, Vince tore open the envelope and started cursing. Yea Yea~~ You all guessed right...

It is a SAMAN for speeding..Haha. Yes he was unhappy about it as it is a 3 lane highway and the speed limit should not be 80 only..(Please note that he was doing 107 that time). The compound would cost RM300.00. Funny thing is that we notice that the thingy was dated 19th May 2009 and we received it on the 15th May 2009. Haha. Nevermind..Stilll have to pay. So being the good citizens we decided to pay on the same day itself. Haha. Thus, we made a trip to the IPD Petaling Jaya. Vince still can smile and say "Good also..Can ular..". Since I didn't need to work I decided to tag along since I never got saman before (Yea..trying to show off) and wanted to see the police station. Hehe.
So we had lunch first and then went to settle some other work related matters before heading to IPD PJ. Upon arrival we went to the parking lot nearby and another conversation struck with the parking attendant. "Boss. Mana mau pigi??" Vince politely replied "IPD PJ..". Then the parking attendant still want to continue his interogation "Pigi sana apa buat??" Vince can't help but look at him with the "what has it got to do with you" look but still replied "BAYAR SAMAN". Haha. The parking attendant then looked at his watch and replied "AIYO!!! sekarang baru 2.30pm le...Itu kaunter talak buka la...Pukul 3pm baru buka la..Ini hari dia orang rehat sampai 3pm..Lu boleh tunggu ka??" trying to hint tat if we go in and park out car first we would incur extra parking costs as the parking charges by half hourly basis. We had no other place to go so Vince just answered "Tak apa..saya park dalam tunggu." So we took the parking ticket and went to find for a parking space. The parking lot was full. There were several cars that were involved in accidents parked there. Some crushed beyond recognition. An eerie sight. I believe the poor chaps did not even survive the crash. We had to turn like 2-4 rounds before we got a space and the space was so small thus we sat in the car scouting for another car to leave before we shift our parking space. After sometime a car left and we charged to the new available space. But it was only 2.45 pm. With nothing to do we thought mayb we should slowly crawl over to the station and wait there. Upon arrival, the police there was kind and guided us the way to the settlement counter. At the settlement office, there were already several other motorists waiting and checking their summonses. The settlement counters resume operations at 2.45 pm. So I sat there while Vince waited in line to get a number while to check if the compound could be reduced. Haha. Good citizen ma. Pay on same day. Deserve some discount ma right??
Didn't take long for Vince's turn. When it was his turn, the uncle at the counter asked "Semak saman ke bayar saman??" Vince replied "Bayar. Saya terima ini. Kena di Kajang. Boleh bayar sini ka??" Uncle answered "Satu Malaysia boleh bayar.." I could not help laughing to myself. Vince then asked "Boleh kurang ka itu compound?" The uncle looked up at us and loudly repeated "BOLEH KURANG KA" and then grabbed the summon Vince was holding. He glanced through and started typing something into the computer in front of him then informed us "Ini boleh la..bayar RM200.00. Mau bayar sekarang ar??" Not wanting to waste anytime Vince just nodded and the uncle pushed the summon back to us together with a number and asked us to wait for our turn at the next counter. It was only mere seconds before our number was called out and we went over to the payment counter.
A minute later, it was all settled and we wer given a receipt. The whole process took less than 5 minutes. Quite fast eh. Haha. After leaving we went to the bank to do some depositing and cash replenishing. We got a parking space and even though we would only be away from the car for bout what..less than 10 minutes or probably 5?? we still went over to the parking ticket dispenser machine and got ourself a ticket. Rather pay the 60 cents parking than to get a RM40.00 compound. Haha. Lesson well learnt.
