How Fragile We Are

That life can be gone in split seconds.

All that you have worked for, is nothing anymore.
The people that you love, no longer there for you.
Death can be a lonely thing. The journey of the afterlife, is yours alone. Until you meet your Maker and the rest of the pack at heaven or hell.

My condolence to the family members of Ali.

DIY Dream

I like daydreaming. Especially on a Saturday afternoon, approximately around 4pm when the brain just refuse to work and the countdown clock seems to malfunction as well. It's the BEST time to close your Microsoft Excel sheets and stare into the computers and look for ideas for the weekend.

Of late, I have re-ignited my interest in DIY-ing stuff. It all started with me being stingy and wanting to make my own Drybox to keep my camera instead of investing a good RM 300 to buy one. But until today the project still havent jalan, but I will get it done by this week or next la. Then after that, I wanna build a lightbox pulak, for macro photography. But that I will have to wait until I get a flash first. And after the flash, I wanna make some diffusers and bounce cards.. Should be very interesting then =)

Maybe this weekend I will have some time to do some simple DIY works like a stationary box and pen holder which I had been meaning to do for a long time. My office table needs to be re-organised.

The thoughts of this led me to more ambitious DIY projects.

I want to have a garage so that I can do carpentry works. I like to work with wood. I like designing my own furnitures, buying the materials and shaping them to the form that I want. If only I have the place, money and time for this, I would pursue this as a hobby.

But that is probably many many years more to come. I'd better finish up my mini projects first before embarking on bigger plans.

Cheers, it's the weekends again. =)

It Has Been Good

The past one term in the sports club has been good for me.

Not that ALL my activities received overwhelming responds. More often than not, I will be wondering to myself, what went wrong that people dont sign up for the activities. Time? Well, it's all about how you want to spend your weekend. Money? Nothing is free these days, and as much as I pleaded and reasoned, freebies and big subsidies just wont work in the company anymore.

But there were good times too. There were very very supportive people who brought colours into the activities. After all, its all about the people. If they are happy, I am happy too. =)

All in all, I would say the experience I gained was invaluable and have taught me how to handle people and situation better. I have been to places I wouldnt have gone otherwise. Done things I never thought I could. Be right in the middle of the action others could only watch. Met some of the coolest people in the company, made new friends with people from other divisions and even from a faraway region. Rub shoulders with the VIPs. And all these enriched me in many, many ways.

Many thanks to the wonderful guys and girls at the sports club. It's been good working with y'all.

Tell Me, How To Be A Zombie?

I am dead, yet undead.

Was suffocated to death a long time ago. Yet somehow, with all the carbon and hazardous gas in the air, I still managed to survive. I am a walking dead. Living on neither side of the world. Waiting for the time where I will be liberated from all this misery. I know the exact time, but sadly, its still a long way to go. And sadly, I dont see the end to this tunnel of death.

I need strength to move on. Or tonnes of cash to buy my freedom.

*pst: This is a metaphoric entry. And I am not suicidal.

On A Peaceful Afternoon

No storm, the sun is shining moderately, the sky is blue, the clouds are thick and rain is expected to pour in the evening.

No emails flooding in. Feels very quiet and lonely these days.

But still, it's a peaceful afternoon.

And I am listening to 'Stars' by Simply Red.

Perfect. It would be, if it's a Sunday afternoon. =)

Many DIY Projects To Come

Got to tidy up my office workstation.

Thinking of buying some plastic containers to organise my stationaries properly. And some plastic boxes to keep my stray documents. Also, a proper box to put all the namecards I have collected over the years.

But then again, it will be more fun to build those myself.

See if I can find some scraps at the site that can be used for my new mini projects. =))

The Project (note the capital P) has a new PM btw. And he's a clean freak. Hence, the sudden need to be spick and span, which otherwise I wouldnt be borthered much about.

Will post up the upcome of my new DIYs. If I have the time to load the pics.
