Unbidden pain

I couldnt sleep last nite. what started out as just an ache has become quite unbearable.

Its my coccyx or tailbone.

(noooooooooo.... i'm growing a tail!!!)

And i dont even know what happened. i havent been doing anything out of the ordinary and i didnt fall on my butt or anything remotely similar.

Hafta google. and hafta visit the good doc if it persist.

Goodbye MJ

Way back during the reign of the Osmonds & the Jacksons, i had always peferred MJ over donny. to me donny was just too sickeningly sweet.. but that was the time when MJ was still your regular african american; dark skinned, signature afro, blunt features.. that was the time when he was the cutest jackson.

Later when he couldnt quite make up his mind what he wanted to be.. white? dark? man? woman? i became quite frustrated especially because i liked his music. i wanted to at least know where he was coming from so that i could emphatize, symphatise and really connect. the guy was talented but he was also a little.. weird.

Fame can be a blessing and a curse i guess.

But whatever he was, he's still the king of pop and i cant help feeling he'd been pretty much misunderstood.

Another day has gone
I'm still all alone
How could this be
You're not here with me
You never said goodbye
Someone tell me why
Did you have to go
And leave my world so cold

You are not alone
For I am here with you
Though you're far away
I am here to stay
For you are not alone
For I am here with you
Though we're far apart
You're always in my heart

Another update

.... of THE flu.

The F4 student who contracted the h1n1 virus has been given a clean bill of health and discharged from the hospital ward.

Alhamdulillah she & her 2 siblings are ok.

AH is also feeling much better and have gone off to school.

Lets hope it'll stop there.

AF has completed his 2 weeks kursus induksi & 1 week BTN.. and the dude is coming home today yay :) now we wait and see where he'll be send for his first posting. i really hope its somewhere where theres internet access.. he's too much a cyber geek that i fear he'll wither (but not die la) without connection ;)

AI's been accepted for his degree in advertising at the shah alam main campus and its a huge relief for me because now i have someone that i can share some of the responsibilities with... its tough managing a household alone.


Seronok anak2 penuh rumah :D

Latest on AF (pisang goreng really panas ni lol) - a letter from kementerian arrived today and he's required to register at pejabat pelajaran daerah temerloh, pahang on the 13th of July 2009!! tuan punya surat pun tak sampai lagi but we couldnt help ourselves.. we opened the letter hehehe (and he didnt mind because he was just as anxious as everyone to find out where he'd be posted!!).

Syukur alhamdulillah la tak jauh mana.. kalau idak rindu keras la mama dia ;)

The sniffles

AH went to sleep last nite with a box of tissues & a running nose.

She doesnt have fever.

But she's also complaining of sore throat.

She's definately staying home today.

Swine flu update

SMK S9 closed down class 4 SIK/akaun due to a confirmed case of the h1n1 virus. the rest of the school is operating as usual.

I really dont want to over react but terms like epidemic & pandemic fills me with fear.. and i've heard nothing else since the h1n1 onslought so pardon my paranoia. what best to do, thats my main concern and since i'm not too sure how to actually go about it, i'm just hoping whatever measures the school is taking is adequate enough to contain the infection.

The mask seems like a good idea but it could well turn out to be just a feel good measure. we cant really know for sure who, or if anyone, was close enough to have caught the virus from the infected student. when we're in school we dont just stay in class all the time do we? we mingle especially during breaks so just about anyone could have contracted the virus.

But can we really put our guard up against everyone?

Thats actually what the kids are expected to do if the authorities dont close down the school. which might seem drastic for now but will be the next logical step if a student from another class was to come down with it.

In the meantime? we just wait... and pray.

AA - hope ur celcom line wasnt barred just because i was late in settling ur measly RM95.00 bill... haish berkira betoi la depa ni.
AF - sikit je lagi and it'll be over, and thus a new chapter begins!! hah dapat gaji nanti mesti belanja mama & abah.. and ijat.. and esoh.. and opah.. and nico.. and adik.. and... hehehe.
AI - ma slalu cuak whenever you drive across state lines; you're still my asthmatic baby la u ;) jaga diri baik2 and ingat abah pesan, jangan merayap!!
AH - sweetheart ma harap xde pape la and this latest scare will just pass.

.. or should i say, the swine of all flu?

AH didnt go to school today... i didnt let her. too much talk about her schoolmates being infected. until i know more about it, home is where she's staying.

Its not something to be taken lightly.

Wounded penguin

It started drizzling the moment i pulled out of the driveway.. and both AH and me visibly sighed for different reasons. she obviously didnt want to get wet going to school and i was actually all geared up for my run.

Thank god it cleared up halfway to school and just remained cloudy the rest of the morning.

But the rain made me a little late so i kept strictly to the tasik route and ended up 200m short of my usual 4km. i have this thing about sticking to the numbers but decided against being too icky picky about it. after all at least i'm still shakin' my fat ass lol ;)

Oh and if you were there around 8am, yup, that crazy looking makcik shamelessly clutching her breast and running funny was me ekekekeh!!

I havent been feeling too good lately so i started out in a slow jog, putting one foot after another and muttering my usual zikir. after about 1000m my left breast started to ache and each time my feet landed onto the pavement i felt this shooting pain. it wasnt really that bad but it still bothered me. after a while i had to support it with my arm and modify my running so that i landed more on my toes to lessen the jarring.

Not one to give up so easily i kept on running but i'm sure i looked worst than a wounded penguin lol. it would have been hilarious if it wasnt so painful. must've been the biopsy. didnt think it would effect me but i guess i was wrong. still, i'm thinking the increased O2 intake i'm providing my body more than make up for the discomfort.

I have another appointment with the good doc this pm. he probly has the result of my biopsy with him.

Hmmmm. que sera sera.

Reality strikes

.. like a splash of cold water but come to think of it, in this warm weather maybe it aint such a bad thing after all ekekekeh ;)

I'm back from a week of cuti2 malaysia in the land of mahsuri and it was fun & theraputic at the same time. to a certain extent it did manage to wipe out the bad taste of bandung still lingering in my mouth.. ptuuuii!!

So the kids are back on tract. to be specific AH is daddy's little girl again :)

Yesterday's biopsy at SDMC was scarier in anticipation than the actual procedure itself. it went without a hitch and i suppose by thursday i'll know whether its good news or bad. whatever the results may be, its inevitable bcos theres nothing that can stop life from dishing you stuff that will usually either make you & break you. so like it or not we have to be ready.

But the good thing is we're not completely helpless in the matter... nope we're not bcos we do get to choose how we'll react to it ;)

Half empty or half full?

Bala atau rahmat?

What we see and how we see it, now THAT is within our control.

Moving on, wtf is going on in this office? i leave for a week and its mayhem!?! and gawd, whats with this memo madness? not enough trees butchered for paper is it? Adeh susah la camni. is there a machine out there that can weed out the true leaders from the opportunists who sees this place as a stepping stone and to hell with the people who gets 'stepped' on?!!

Regardless of how you perceive your actions but what goes round comes round, if not to you then to yours.. which is actually a whole lot scarier bcos they dont deserve to suffer for your misdeeds or shortcomings now do they?

Sheesh, its people like these who gives humanity a bad name and makes you wonder if being a cat isnt a bad idea after all (you get to eat, sleep, poop without a care in the world hehehe).

nico the fat cat

Oh btw have you registered for the shah alam adidas KOTR 2009 yet peeps? its almost end of june and the closing date is set at 03/07/09. it doesnt hafta be the half mara if you're not up to it. choose a category most suited to you (i'll be doing the women's vet at 7-8km) and just enjoy the early morning run :)

So see ya k & have a good day, regardless :D
