Escaping Alcatraz - The Malaysian AES!

Image
My drive from PD fetching my husband back home on the North-South Expressway in a rainy night 2 weeks ago, caught me by a shock when I decided to overtake a Hilux that was driving horridly slow in the middle lane. 
As I placed my right side signal light, changed my lane and increased my acceleration to over take the snail, 3 lightening flashes from the left snapped me one shot after another. I was shocked and at a brief second, panicked and stared out of the car wondering what the heck that was! 
GOOD CHRIST!!! They were speed cameras!
Are those cameras suppose to photography those who are speeding or cause a FATAL ACCIDENT at the same time????????
I did not have the slightest clue they had placed those cameras at that particular point and thank God I have a strong control of the wheel. No wonder everyone was driving so slowly at that stretch. Yesterday, once again when we had to drive the same route back home, my husband asked why was every one slowing down? I told him.. “I guess we…

Remember Me?

Image
I had a rather weird experience last week.
Saw a person I knew from my hometown on FB and decided to request for friends. After almost 2 weeks plus from when the request was made, she accepted my request and then over the chat upon me messaging first, she tells me she has no clue who I am!
WOW! I was seriously shocked to my marrow on her loss of memory!
A person whom back then (approximately 15 years ago I should say) would come around me and start conversations which I did positively engage in, who told me once that I inspire her, who claimed admired me and wished I were her older sister - suddenly has no recollection of who I was shockingly startled me. I am certain by the words of many and my with my own eyes that I have not changed in my facial appearance, and socially I have been active in church activities where by this person had no reason to have not seen me after school years.

So what is the reason then?
Can a person truly truly have such an amnesia?
Or is this amnesia one out…

Queue Up Not Glue Up!

Image
Have you ever had to experience being in a queue and the person behind you seem to be in some idiotic rush? Pushing and glueing themselves into you?
 Well, if I’m asking you then you can surely guess why! Today at the movies, queuing up to get some popcorn, I just had to have a woman behind me that glued herself to my back, pushing my handbag forward almost every 5 seconds and for what? I have no clue! It’s not like the counter is going to drive away or we need to stick our face up another person’s arse to make space for the queue that’s unfortunately getting longer, right? In my irritation I spoke out loudly saying, IT’S QUEUE UP NOT GLUE UP LARRRRRRRRRR!!!!

Of late funny lines verbalise itself out of me in my height of irritation.. Well it made my sister laugh and me too of course.. It is so blardy annoying to be in such a close proximity with a stranger, and all my experiences of such is with women older than me! Nooooo I’m not going to feel any different in fact must madder if it …

First International Day of the Girl Child

Image
11th of October has been declared as  International Day of The Girl Child focussing its first year into observance to ending ‘child marriages’.

All my growing years I have watched such ridiculous child marriages shown in movies and dramas on the TV and have heard stories from neighbors about girls as young as 13 and 14 being married off to older men to ease the financial burden of her family. BURDEN? I have asked my mum, is that the purpose of marriage? To ease a parent’s burden? Her reply was that’s how little the parents of those girls know! They don’t understood the value of education in a girl, and the burden that can be eased off of their shoulder if their daughters were given a chance to work and be someone. If independence to her life was given priority. How much more would the family gain from their daughter if they had placed her rights above all else.

Personally I knew of a girl back in school, who came from a poverty striken family. She was made to be married off almost im…

My Copper Anniversary!!

Officially it’s 9 years, but I like to count it with a plus 2! So technically it’s 11 years..
I can’t believe how fast time flies.. and how much we have grown as a family and as individuals ourselves - spouse and parent.. how much we have been through.. and how much more we look forward to go thru for each other and our lovely children.. Hopefully till our bones go brittling away with toothless smiles.. along with grandkids who are deeply in love with us, and children who desire to always embrace our warmth.. because I know that warmth is something you and I have in abundance for our babies!!
For all those wishes I wish.. I have but one simple wish to begin with.. That I have at least a minute of life left in my soul, no matter what, to always have the chance to say I LOVE YOU before a final goodbye..
They say... Life is so unpredictable..  But of all the unpredictabilities.. our blessings are the best things we have been unpredictably showered with!! My blessings are YOU and OUR LOVE…
